All the world is vibration.

Universal law – everything is a reflection of cosmic energy

The ancients understood that sound was the creative life force  'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him'.  - The Bible

If we believe “Everything in life is vibration.” Albert Einstein .  Then every cell, every molecule in our bodies vibrates. So too everything comprising our known reality. Occasionally we become out of synch and require a tune up.  Some visit doctors for prescriptions or chiropractors for adjustments, increasingly others turn to energetic practices ranging from Reiki and Quantum Touch to essential oils, singing bowls, toning and gongs.  However nearly all of the musical instruments are tuned to the harmonic scale which is man made.

Surely it makes sense to tune into the sounds of nature.  I am the cosmic ocean of sound and the little wave of the body vibration in it. - Paramahasana Yogananda . Introducing the  frequencies of the cosmos will result in true balance, equilibrium and harmony.  

For the next two months we proudly host and collaborate with Jens Zygar, a German master of the Cosmic Octave, performer, recording artist, edutainer and Integral Sound specialist to share with us his knowledge for becoming one. He will perform with me in Wonderfruit, as well as at the studio, offer privates as well as two workshops.  We are truly blessed to have him here, an opportunity not to be missed.  Refer to the info below. 
 

Without leaving my house, I know the whole universe. - Lao Tsu

Change your mind, change your life

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I was brought up to take care of my possessions, polish my shoes, darn holes and fix buttons to get the maximum use of each item.  Today its called eco-conscious. We called it normal.

When it comes to our bodies we are never the same from one minute to the next.  They are in constant renewal.  It takes 60 seconds for a red blood cell to circumnavigate the body or 7 years for the body to completely renew itself. As our bodies rejuvenate so must our thinking and way of being.  

Last night I presented a workshop called Stop, Reflect and Redirect to the Women's Network at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.  It was a snippet of a longer workshop with the intent to take a snapshot of one's life.  Habits and our way of being can become stale, leaving us lethargic, uninspired and demotivated.  By changing one simple thought or incorporating one new habit regularly we can radically change our lives. 

Change your thoughts and you change your world. Norman Vincent Peale

A good friend resisted all my efforts to attend one of my yoga classes by saying, "I don't DO yoga' based on a previous experience she preferred to forget. I assured her Kundalini was different and that she could do all the exercises and meditations sitting in a chair.  Despite her protestations her mind was open to change.  At the end of the class her radiant smile and obvious transformation warmed the cockles of my heart.  This one class has changed her life.

The trouble is, you think you have time.  Buddha

This week I invite you to think of one mindset or belief you hold to be true and open yourself to the possibility that it could change.  You may surprise yourself.

If you can't change your mind, why have one? Edward Debono

Defining Value

'Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.'
Oscar Wilde

 

In the business world we measure employee performance in terms of time, money, and output to determine bonuses and promotion prospects.  On a personal level how do you define 'value'? The dictionary says: 

  1. the regard that something is held to deserve
  2. principles or standards of behaviour; 
  3. one's judgement of what is important in life.

When I sort my closet I make the judgement of what to keep based on, 'Is it beautiful?', 'Is it useful?' and 'Can I live without it?'.  Every year it shrinks.

'I make myself rich by making my wants few.'
HD Thoreau


But what about how we spend our time and with whom?  Bob Dylan says, " A man is successful if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do".   Given that we have a limited time on earth it behooves us to live in a way that embodies our true selves and  allows us to grow as humans. 

'Your core values are the heart of your business.' - Anon


As the holidays and another birthday approach, I reflect on what is giving me the deepest satisfaction in my life in order to do more of it while on the flip side what is not serving my true Self and letting that go.  I am indeed fortunate in that everyday I  express my values, to share, inform, and transform clients which brings profound satisfaction knowing I have made a difference not only here but elsewhere in the region.  The Red Doors community grows, the breadth and depth of our services expands and from one drop,  one person, the ripples of change travel around the world.  Thank you for joining me on the journey.  I invite you this week to let go of the baggage that is no longer allowing you to live in your authenticity.

Hindsight is always 2020

Wayne Dyer, author and acknowledged expert on personal development has written that every step of our life journey is a teaching opportunity.  He says he was not  aware of all of the future implications of these early experiences but with the clarity of hindsight he knows that every single challenge and situation together defined the patchwork of his life. For which he is grateful.

In the holiday season I invite you to reflect on your own personal journey.  Are you consciously living to fulfill your purpose?  It is impossible to change what has already past, but it is not too late to rewrite the future. What are you waiting for?
