THE FREE GIFT OF LIFE?

Is there value in the “FREE GIFT OF LIFE”?

THIS WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE AND THIS TOPIC CAN BE DISCUSSED, MY GUESS IS , NON STOP FOR YEARS.

CAN WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO ASK MORE QUESTIONS?

Here’s what I know to be true for my own life along with some context and facts.

I grew up in a religious home, youth group weekly, and in an evangelical faith. Being saved through God’s grace and accepting him into your heart was the gateway to being set free and living an abundant life and living according to God’s purpose for our lives.

I believe we are complicated beings and want so much to believe there is something bigger than our ownselves that created us.

I can’t disregard the voice I’ve struggled with for so long. Even after I accepted the gift of eternal life & Jesus Into My Heart, I was still lost about who I was and a yearning to be more and want more. And why do I feel guilty for that.

We are taught to follow Christ and he will direct your path. Accept the free gift of life and jesus into your heart and you’ll be on your way.

……………………………………………….

Question: But why do I feel so broken and unworthy still?

Church Answer: Because your not studying the bible and following Christ the way you ought to. Your not putting in the work.

………………………………………………..

I’ve found that you can’t ignore the voice and the knocking at your heart that speaks to you and says…even now there has to be more to access more capacity to do and become. More than just hope and prayer.

FREE? Everything worth something is very rarely free. If we wait and rely on the free gift to work in our lives and save us, my guess is the wait will be long.

If you read this far, I’d love to here some comments and feedback. Does any of this resonate with you?

Pulling Back In One Area To Fix Another

What most need to figure out on a daily basis to understand what they want to accomplish on that particular day.

For many, whether your Single, Married, Man, or Female, you are trying to juggle and find balance in your relationships, jobs, finances, and spirituality (Whatever that is for you).

Consider our goal should be a great as we can be in all those areas to be in complete balance and on target and clear as to who you are, what you want to become, and how you want to be towards others.

Keep in mind it’s okay to pull back in one area a bit in order to seek realignment in another area of your life.

DON’T PULL BACK TOO FAR OR THE “UNDERTOE” WILL PULL YOU BACK INTO THE FORMER BAD HABITS IN THOSE OTHER AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.

Recognize though that you will have to pull back (transfer focus) sometimes in one area of your life in order to slingshot yourself ahead in another. Then mesh them all together for the new you!

I’d love to hear your comments, thoughts, and feedback on this.

Where are some instances you’ve had to pull back in order to refocus on another area of your life?

One Habit Lifts All Others

“A rising tide lifts all Boats”

And with that the same can be said that “One Habit Lifts All Others!” ~Brendon Bruchard~

So how do we continue to expand and get better as a person in our relationships, mindfulness and spirtituality, with our Kids (if you have them), in our patience with others, in our gratitude, and in our finances?

I’d have you consider that it all starts with working on yourself and discerning where you are in life as a person and what you want.

Seriously…you really have to discern and look inward first and take care of yourself before you can make an impact on others and in the other areas of your life. Taking care of yourself and feeling good about yourself will effect the other areas of your life. So will not feeling great about yourself!

SEEKING CLARITY

This means it will start by wanting to seek CLARITY. Wanting is the key word here as the door to your path will only open up to you from the inside. If your indifferent to wanting to do this..it won’t really matter for you and your life……And that’s really okay. You may already have everything figured out.

In my previous post I mentioned that Step 1 was to BURY YOUR COFFIN. This happens after you reallized the pain is too great to stay the same and so you dive deep into accessing the capacity you once had.

So where to you go after STEP 1? SEEK CLARITY.

“By seeking clarity, you develop a habit of asking questions, looking within, observing your behaviors, and assessing whether you’re on track.” (Brendon Bruchard: High Performance Habits)

STEP 1 IN FINDING YOURSELF AGAIN

I’m leading off with the golden nugget!

Here is the very first step you must take in order to find yourself again.

Well let us back up…..after you finally get fed up with the pain of feeling empty, alone, unwanted, directionless, paranoid of what others are thinking about you, afraid to take action, afraid to share your feelings, afraid to be the person that has been knocking on your thoughts for however long…….

So I don’t know who you are, and honestly don’t know every struggle each and everyone of you has.

Here is what I do know……

Because I know myself…I can know you!

When the pain is finally too much and you are ready to start Seeking, Hunting, and Listening for who you always were, and are to become…..

Step 1:

BURY YOUR COFFIN!: IT’S AN ACTUAL INTENTIONAL EXERCISE OF PURGING YOUR HEART, YOUR FEELINGS, YOUR FEARS, AND YOUR MESS UPS TO THOSE CLOSEST TO YOU SO YOU CAN MOVE ON AND STOP HIDING!

IT SOUNDS SIMPLE BUT IT WILL BE THE MOST SCARIEST AND MENTALLY STRESSFUL THING YOU’ll DO IF YOU DO IT WITH COMPLETE HONESTY!

The fact is at this point you are completely lost and disconnected with yourself and out of balance. You are not sure about who you are any more.

And most likely one or many of these areas in your life are broken…your relationships, your fitness, your spirtuality and love for yourself, your finances.

If you can’t bring yourself to do this. You’ll always be hiding!

LISTEN I’VE BEEN RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. LOST AND I WAS SEARCHING FOR A WAY TO FIND MYSELF AGAIN. FORGET ABOUT LOVING OTHERS..I HATED MYSELF AND WHO HAD BECOME AND TOOK THAT OUT ON EVERYONE.

LOVE YOU ALL……….

What kind of fears, thoughts, failures would you put in your coffin and speak out of existence in your life? I”d love to hear them.

It’s never too late to be you! XOXOXO

I Hear When I Move

Here is a fact for me in my life.

I’ve noticed that in my day to day life I am much more clear headed after I move and energize my body. That’s another way of saying….AFTER I WORK OUT!

Without a doubt the result is the same all the time. When I am not in a daily routine and sticking with a consistent daily habit of Seeking and Hunting…The voice I try to hear for direction goes dark for me. I don’t know about you ….but it does for me.

It is impossible for me to wake up and be at full capacity and performing at my best at work or with my family without the structure of Seeking Hunting and Listening. It’s what being on the Hunt is all about.

SEEKING is the process of figuring out what you want and who you want to become.

HUNTING Is the process, within CLARITYHUNT, of becoming. What is it that you do to foster the journey that you are on.

Meditation and working out is a huge part of that process for me. I’ve found also…It doesn’t take long for the voice to go dark on me.

The fact is something happens to me physiologically during and after I work out. I get back on track mentally and of course physically I feel great.

But mentally, during the workout, My thoughts come to my loud and clear. Clear as day they are. The majority of my writings on here are immediately after I workout.

When I SWEAT, I HEAR, and I FEEL, otherwise things I normally would not. It’s a small part of the hunting process but an important one that will enable me to LISTEN clearly.

Consider the importance of having a process that helps you with Clarity as well. What is that for you?

I’d love to here your thoughts as well.

When is it for you that you hear clearly your thoughts clearly guiding you?

DARKNESS…Sometimes You Feel What You Feel

It just is what it is sometimes... you know!?

"Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone"
~Sound of Silence~

Listen....some days just aren't one of your best days. In many cases there may not be any particular reason for it. Listen it's not easy to have the perfect mindset every single freakin Day. After all we are in the middle of a pandemic, job losses every where, and your trying to put on a great face like everything is normal!

Well I feel you!...... if you are just not there in that space today! Tomorrow is another day to be great!

GRATEFULNESS

GRATEFULNESS!

Ever get that overwhelming feeling of gratefulness and thankfulness that washes over you? It can feel like you are in a flow state and everything just fits into being what you are at that moment.

It’s hard feeling to describe. I know you know what I’m talking about. You’ve felt it too!

There are times also when you don’t feel it or have that effortless feeling of gratefulness, gratitude, peace, and thankfulness. Those are the times that things feel out of balance and your routines and habits are just off.

Remember perfection doesn’t exist. But putting in consistent work, habits, and routines to be able to listen to your “voice” and feel that “flow” is important and makes us better.

“The moment you notice what you did inside of you that produced that effect outside of you…you will really start to pay attention to what you did and believe you are less a victim of your life and instead the creator.”

Dr. Joe Dispenza/Garret J. White

Forgive Yourself

Now more than ever.

Current events have really cemented my belief.
On how important it is to find true peace with yourself.

WHAT DO I MEAN:

*You like the journey your on
*You can feel comfortable,with your own thoughts when you or forced to be quarantined.
*You can see the good all around you that can be learned and taken. Even in the midst of so much pain, heartbreak, and chaos.
*Understanding You can control only how you yourself respond.
*Understanding that, no matter how dark the valley we walk through, we are still not victims. But we have the ability to INTENTIONALLY choose.

HERE’S THE 🔑

Its not about being perfect and being in control every second and minute of the day.

Its about net growth. About forgiving yourself and not beating yourself up about thoughts, stories, and feelings that flood your mind.

What it is about….is recognizing those triggers and thoughts, and then being able to climb your way out of them and back onto your path.

So don’t beat yourself up. Forgive yourself and move forward.

Where in your current situation are you not forgiving yourself for feeling what your feeling?

Only Pain Causes Change

Pillar I. of Clarity is Seek.

Here’s what is interesting about what I call to SEEK. We start to SEEK in our own lives when we are desperate for a change. Seeking is the beginning of a journey and understanding that you will be starting the HUNT for your truth. This Truth is yours. It’s your path and everyone else will have there own. A calling and a voice that tells you to GO! There are some this doesn’t apply to, but there are also many that aren’t aware of how much self-care and self-awareness play important roles in the expansion of their lives.

The truth is that for many the pain of not needing to do anything different in their lives to change just isn’t great enough. And that is a good thing for those that don’t need to. I’m of the thought that most everyone has an area that they avoid confronting change. They ignore that area and act like everything is fine. Unfortunately the reality is that the pain in that area of their life just isn’t great enough. But it is just “Good Enough” for them.

The flip side is that there are many carrying around a pain and a baggage that is so great on a daily basis and Men and women feel stuck and don’t know how to move on from the pain…such as loneliness, heartbreak, emptiness, being out of shape, broken relationships, financial difficulties, seperation, worthiness, & confidence, to name only a fraction of the hurt that people feel.

Pain accumulates and accumulates and we will carry it until the burden gets too great and we have no choice but to seek for a better way to do things differently.

If the pain is so great in areas of your life. Consider it’s not too late to change and to SEEK for a better way, HUNT for your calling and who yo want to become, and therefore be able to LISTEN and get clear.

Question: Where in your life is the pain starting to be so great that you need to make a change?

Question: Where has there been a voice speaking to you asking you to change, but you’ve ignored the knocking?

GREATFUL FOR REFLECTION

It is difficult during our normal routines to have a sense of graditude and greatfulness. Isn’t it part of human nature to start the day with a sense of angst about the unknown? It’s easy to get wrapped up in our thoughts of what is to come, then to live in the now then to be greatful for what is.

With the present pandemic & uprooting of our normal routines and habits, we for sure lose a sense of predictability and it makes us feel a lack of control. Even in normal times I would have you consider that we battle daily with wanting to control and avoid any uncomfortable situations.

No doubt that even in normal times it takes intentional selfawarenss to overcome our thoughts and to understand where those thoughts come from. We now see ourselves in sort of a grieving state for what was and are trying to adapt.

I get it! I would not be honest if I told you I didn’t feel the pressure and too fall victim to my mind wandering about what if this happens and what if that happens.

I ask you to go deep within yourself and to search yourself how you can come out of this pandemic time stronger, more selfaware, and more Greatful.

Be greatful for the now and leave what is to come for the future.
