In the photo I chose for this biog post, it appears as though I'm saying "What, how did I get this lucky?" You'll notice the huge smile on my face. This photo was taken many years ago, on the first day teaching class in my gorgeous yoga studio, in the NEW location, just after we had moved. We moved from a tiny, carpeted, simple space (which had a charm all it's own) into a light-filled, large, gorgeous new location- right down the street. In this photo I am CELEBRATING our move & this wonderful studio upgrade.
I am so HAPPY that my community will be able to benefit from this move.
I wanted to share with you 3 miraculous (yet very doable) mindsets that I employ DAILY to attract what I want and live the life of my dreams easily and without a lot of struggle. And, to create a successful, abundant and totally soul-satisfying business. And, I want to acknowledge the great privilege, background and resources that I've been blessed with in this life, that provide a solid backdrop to my capacity to live in this way. And, yes, the plain old solid and persistent dedication I have joyfully put in.
Here are the 3 Mindsets (plus a bonus):
Number ONE: Be willing to live in a state of wonder and awe. This is truly how I live each day and each moment (as I described with my friend above). Each breath, each walk, each meal is NEW and amazing. Can we savor it? We have a running joke in my family about my Irish Grandmother Agnes. Agnes knew a thing or two about savoring and enjoying life. Whenever my Grammy would eat a meal or see a new sight she would exclaim outright, "That is the BEST (fill in the blank) I've ever had!" To this day, in my family, we still exclaim from time to time, "This is the best soup, or the best ice cream or the best sunset I've ever had, Agnes." We always add her name at the end, as a tribute to her. In the words of Albert Einstein, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Which do you choose? Choose to be like Agnes & Einstein.
Number TWO: Live with a grateful heart for EVERYTHING that comes. Yes, even the roadblocks and hard stuff. The hard stuff (aka 'contrast') is simply there to help us realign, grow and become more deeply ourselves. So live in gratitude for all the goodness around you (actually look for it every day) but also bless the crud. In the words of Rumi: "Be grateful for whomever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond." And to this I will add, be grateful for whatever comes as well.
If you begin blessing (even out loud) the burdens and setbacks, your entire life will begin to shift in radical ways! You may just have to trust me on this one.
Number THREE: Live It To Give It. This phrase comes from the amazing Martha Beck and was a core tenant of my powerful life-coaching program. I can't tell you how important this one is. You can only offer your unique gifts, share your light, and even attract financial abundance to the degree that you are doing this. What does 'live it to give it' mean?
It means that you are in your INTEGRITY. You don't have to be perfect, you don't have to be polished, but you need to be living (yourself) what you are offering (to others). My success as a yoga teacher and life coach depends on my own courage, my ability to face my own shadows, and to live from a clear, truthful, grounded place. If I am coaching clients to listen to their heart and follow the instructions of their soul, yet am not doing that myself, then I am out of integrity. I have noticed as a hard fact, the direct correlation between how deeply I am ALIGNED with myself and the success of my business.And, I dare say, the happiness of my life.
Success as I define it: Inner Peace, JOY, Contentment, Financial Abundance & Flow, New Connections, Amazing Clients, Attitude of Gratitude, Integrity, etc. How do you define success?
And, here's a REALLY cool part...when I live it to give it, the Universe/ God/ Source/ Spirit gives so much to me, with minimal effort on my part. People call up and offer me delightful opportunities for great pay, new beings want to swirl in my Vortex, and offers are made that align with my core values.
