Don't Have Enough Time? Einstein Disagrees...

On the heels of last week's budding love affair with Einstein, this week's blog finds me deeply interested  in the idea of making time.

In Gay Hendrick's book, "The Big Leap", the idea of "Einstein Time" is made understandable and usable in real life. This week I have been exploring the practice of "making time" as the author suggests stating "we are where time comes from". This idea is not foreign to me, as I have been working in the shamanic realm for some time now and have become a friend to timelessness. 

I bring this idea to you today to assist you in the "I don't have enough time" problem from which most of us seem to suffer from time to time, pun totally intended.  When our busy modern lives seem to take on their own pace, we can being to feel like we are chasing behind just trying to keep up. This is where a new mindset and understanding can create incredible change in your life. 

The next time you say to yourself "I'm running late" or, "I don't have enough time," choose to change your mode of perception. Create an intention of staying centered and grounded that is non-negotiable in your life, and refuse to rush. In this instant you are brought to the present moment and the door to time mastery. In keeping with this mode you allow yourself to be the maker of time rather then the chaser, which puts you in the driver's seat of your life. 

The Most Important Question You Will Ever Answer

“The most important question a person can ask is, "Is the Universe a friendly place?” ― Albert Einstein

This is also the most important question you will ever answer. Why? Let's discuss the implications of answering this question.

if you answer no, then...

  • Everyone and everything you ever encounter will be with hesitation and fear
  • You will never enjoy the freedom of living out of safety and security
  • The full expression of your being will never be expressed
  • Your ultimate potential will hide away, robbing the world of your gifts and love
  • An existence of distrust, disconnection, and destruction of whatever you try to build 

I have lived my first 30 years like this experiencing the life that mistrust will breed. As a child, I unconsciously decided my world was unfriendly. This is a invaluable and common survival mechanism employed by children effected with traumatic circumstances. Although essential in childhood, my adult life couldn't thrive with fear as the guiding force. To many of us live an entire lifetime without answering this question as rational adults. We get stuck from the beginning and stay stuck without ever knowing why or how to remedy it. This is not what I want for you my dear love. Let's see what a change in the answer will give you.

Yup, I'm Guilty. The Lesson of the Week

Yup, you caught me. I am guilty as charged. For the last couple of weeks I have been hyperventilating and stressing so much that I created a serious kink in my back that is taking some serious love to work out..

Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Yoga, Meditation.... all in the hopes of loosening the clenching that was actually caused by, you guessed it, yours truly.

I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the effort of churning out great content and developing a viable business of service. It was not until I entered Yoga class on Monday morninggreeted by a new and ambitious teacher, that I received my wake up call.

arrived a couple of minutes late, and so the class was already into their flow sequence. I unrolled my mat and began to join in. I instantly became aware that what I was being guided to do was NOT what my body and breath were ready to do.  At first I thought, what the f*ck! Doesn't she know I need a considerable amount of warming up to keep up this pace? And after maybe one or two more attempts from my ego to get pissed and find fault in her style, I got the lesson I needed so badly that day. 

Are You Sure Your Good Enough for This?

Here I am. It's Thursday andmy blog is due to my "editor". My week has had lots of insights, breakthroughs, and miracles but still I sit here thinking "what do I write about?"

I have to tell you, it is not always the easiest task to express my path of service in this blog every week. In fact, sometimes I just don't feel like it. I don't feel like conjuring up some grand message from the depths of my wisdom. I just want to be Erika. So today I am letting myself off the hook and letting go of my will to serve with excellence.  Instead I will just stand aside and let it ride. 

Now, don't get me wrong. There is not a word that comes out of my being when I am standing in a place of service, written or spoken, for which I don't give total credit to spirit. I firmly believe that we are divine expressions of "God's" love that our service is the ultimate expression of that love. But today, I think I will truly just put this to the test and move aside entirely. I wonder what will come out? Will I start radiating and levitating? You never know. I have had some intense and mind blowing experiences on this path. I put NOTHING past the power of spirit to make a show. 

So, now what.. hum. 

Oh.. I know.

Remember when you were told you were not good enough as a young girl?
