Life is fast and full for most of us! It is important to make a conscious decision to quiet the mind, connect with the body, and evaluate whether or not we are expressing our gifts fully in the world. All three of these practical expressions can make a major difference in the quality of our lives!

 

Three Must Do’s to Make Conscious Decisions In Your Business and LifeConsider the following:

1 Quieting the mind

  • Set aside time in silence at least 3 days a week for 20 minutes. Begin to get to know yourself, your needs, your desires and aspirations. Learn to identify and trust your intuition and inner voice. We all have an inner voice that guides and directs us. We just need to listen.
  • Question: Can you think of 1 way this week that you could actually create more calm & stillness?

2.  Connecting with the body

  • Learn to become more aware of your body’s needs.
  • Listen more closely to the signs that your body gives you, i.e. where are there aches, sensations, and areas of tightness? Is your body sending you a message?  What might the message be?
  • Explore these sensations through yoga & movement. Your body holds great information about its own healing needs and emotional state of being.
  • Question: What 2 things would you need to do differently to begin to honor and care for your body in a new way?

3.  Expressing our gifts in the world

  • Begin to look at the day-to-day changes that you can make in your life to express more of who you really are.
  • Evaluate whether or not your day is made up of work activities and projects that fulfill you.
  • In the course of each day, do you fully express your greatest gifts? (For example, if you’re a writer, make sure that your day includes writing; if you enjoy people, make sure that your day involves social contact and is not limited to working at a desk job; if you enjoy nature, make sure that each day includes time outdoors.)
  • Question: How could you bring more joy, richness, and fulfillment into your life on a daily basis?  What areas of our life could you improve?

 

As we learn to honor these small and simple things, we begin to connect more with who we are and why you here .  From these discoveries we begin to create deeply meaningful lives.

“I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.”

-Gandhi’s Prayer For Peace

I read this prayer for peace the other day and it opened a flood gate within me. Inner voices within me raised many questions. I wondered if we offered each other peace, love and friendship — again, how different would this world be? If I could see your beauty, hear your need and feel your feelings how differently would I relate to you? If we could believe that our wisdom flows from the highest source and salute each other, what would be the general feeling on the street?

What do we have to lose? Let’s work together for unity and love.

I really love helping women  to move forward in their businesses and lives.. I support them get unstuck and clearer about what they really want in business and life. When a woman clears the clutter and sets herself free of things that hold her back- her life takes off in such a momentous way that she becomes unstoppable in creating her dreams. Her business succeeds and her life excels, dreams come true. Whenever I can help another women fulfill her passion and dreams- I feel I’ve succeeded.” ~ Maureen

Each of us has the ability to make a huge difference in our world! As my favorite Irish poet John O’ Donohue has written in Anam Cara:

“… There is a unique destiny for each person. Each one of has something to do here that can be done by no one else. If someone else could fulfill your destiny then they would be in your place and you would not be here…”

 Having grown up in an Irish family and community… I must admit I do love the directness of the Irish. John’s statement is direct and fairly opinionated but opens many questions in my own mind. I have always interpreted Johns words to mean that we are each unique and each hold an important part of the whole.  It has strongly led me to believe that the world needs our unique offering. This quote often guides me to look more deeply at what I believe and value; to look more closely at what really lights my fire. I have found it useful in my journey to ask myself:

  •  What issues or causes on the planet do I feel most strongly about?
  • What is my unique destiny?
  • What are my greatest gifts, strengths and talents and where can they make the most contribution?
  • Where do I experience the most joy and satisfaction?
  • What do I want more of in my life (of the things that I most value)?

I believe that NOW is the time for us to share our uniqueness with the world.  We need to be “Women Influencing Now” to help bring a balance into the world.  For that we need to live dynamically.  It is clear to me that part of the art of alive and dynamic living is staying “awake at the wheel”.  These questions awaken me to stay on course, moving closer to my own unique contribution.

 What do you really believe in and value? What questions do you need to ask yourself right now to find your true beliefs and direction?
