Take a Restraining Order Out On Yourself

You deserve happiness today. Read this blog post and build yourself up. Refrain from negativity, be in joy!

Goss Coaching

How long would you want to hang around someone who was constantly critical of how you looked, what you did, what you said, or how you acted?

Would they be the friend you went to for support when you were down, or to celebrate your success? Let’s hope not!

Loving support is about building you up, cheering you on, and having someone who believes in their heart that you can do anything that you set your mind on achieving.

Now look at how you treat yourself. Are you critical and demanding or loving and supportive?

If you are like most women, you say things to yourself that you would never say to a friend or loved one.

I’ve watched women give themselves a little slap along with a bit of self-criticism. “I should have thought of that.” Slap. “I’m so sassy.” Slap. “I can’t believe I did that.” Slap.

Book Review: Power, Freedom and Grace-Deepak Chopra

Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra gives you the litany that reconditions your thinking and beliefs so that you can experience lasting happiness.  He says, “By knowing who we are, we no longer interfere with joy.” The foundation of the book is to guide the reader to know themselves.

The book opens with three pivotal questions that push you to get in touch with who you are:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Where did I come from?
  3. Where do I go when I die?

Who am I? – that’s the perpetual question of life.  Somewhere, sometime or other we will ask this question. If you haven’t asked yourself this question yet, become conscious of that fact; there is a reason you haven’t allowed the question, much less the investigation of the question, to surface.  Chopra makes the point in the book that unless the question is scoped deeply, it becomes a barrier to happiness. In other words, until you know who you are you are under the influence of hypnotic superstitious conditioning.

Where did I come from? – another age old inquiry.  Chopra says every person originates from the same source of pure consciousness.  He believes that a deep inculcation of pure consciousness offers the answer. Connection to the source unifies the body and mind with every vibration of nature’s rhythms. Thus, you disavow the superstition of separateness.

Where do I go when I die? – the latent probe of finality.  This question pivots off of the previous two. Once you know who you are and your source, the fear of dying is satisfied. Chopra says,”pure consciousness cannot be destroyed…it is only transformed upon death.

Happiness for a reason is a form of misery-as that reason can change at any time. Chopra wisely offers no remedy to happiness for its own sake-“the key to lasting happiness is to identify with the unchanging essence of your inner self, your source” but instead prompts your own discovery with sage questions.

The answers you accept from your deepest self to this trilogy of questions become, according to Chopra, the key to happiness. The source of power, freedom and grace is the inner-true you.

Make a declaration.

Most people do not get what they want because either they are unclear about what they want or the other percentage is reticent to talk about what they want. Well, it is time to make a declaration. Declare your independence, complete severance, from formless thinking.

Start this day, and every day hence, with a declaration. Say: I declare that I will eat healthy, low sugar foods today. Or you may say, I declare that I will add ten more minutes of exercise or meditation today. You may declare to visit someone you have missed and haven’t seen in a while.  It’s your declaration, as unique and intentional as your fingerprint. You don’t need approval; just declare this is what I want.

Your declaration contains the force for change.  When you declare your intentions, especially in writing, the universe rushes to fulfill your heart-deep want. You have the power. Consider the Aladdin myth where the genie in a bottle says, “Your wish (declaration) is my command.”  This legend of mentality is actually rooted in ancient texts of universal cannons of attraction. Take time to read Collier, Shinn, Campbell, the book of Paul, Towne, Rumi, Vedic writings, Baha’i scripture, Haanel or others in the same scope. You will find the same theme.

Know what you want and make a declaration for that.

Modern literature, The Secret or The Throne of Your Inner Temple, or Your Best Life Now or Climb Every Obstacle: Eliminate Your Limits! , makes the same direct claim-ask and you shall receive or you get what you pay attention to. The inference is that you can get what you want. There is no need to jump ahead, no need to hoard, no need to be malicious at all; it’s yours-earmarked for you once you know what you want and make a declaration for it.

In the world of physics or particle theory, the atom of energetic declaration starts a vibration that moves and energizes the rush of aide to fulfill your deepest desire. It is best to caution you here: the energy will flow to what you declare you want IF you do not block the vibration resonance with doubt, fear, or negative mind talk.

An intangible declaration can be transmuted into physical fulfillment.

Your declaration is yours to command.

Fantastic Friday: Scott Rigsby

It seems that you need heart, not legs, to accomplish the unthinkable. Double amputee Ironman Scott Rigsby has a big-actually huge-heart. His story inspires and oftentimes takes away excuses; he embodies the unthinkable which he will now share with new amputee Amiee Copeland (both from Georgia).

Double amputee Ironman Scott Rigsby

“Life goes on,” is part of the salient message Scott will share with Aimee. She’s in the international spotlight now partly because of the flesh eating bacteria that caused her to loose arms and legs and begin to live as a quadruple amputee. The e other reason Aimee is so endearing is because of her positive perspective. She says,” My attitude is going to determine my altitude, and I’m going to keep positive”

Rigsby, a double amputee, knows firsthand about the challenges Aimee Copeland will face when she is introduced to a life with prosthesis.

Twenty six years ago it happened. A tractor trailer truck slammed into the vehicle Scott was in and one leg was severed and hlis other leg was mangled. Ten years ago, he became a double amputee, the other leg was removed. Eventually an Atlanta Thrashers team physician fitted him with high-tech prosthetic legs, Rigsby, now an internationally known triathlete, said he was finally able to get on with his life.

Through his foundation, Rigsby has also worked with hundreds of wounded veterans who have lost limbs in combat, and he’ll draw on that experience in working with Copeland. This man has a big heart, a message of courage, indomitable strength and endurance; he has become an “overcomer” and personifies the belief that anyone can and shall overcome.

“I want to be able to take away people’s excuses.” ~Scott Rigsby
