Every Challenge is an Opportunity

“What Energy, Space and Consciousness can I BE that will allow me to have total Ease, Grace and Clarity with all of this?”  Dr. Dain Heer

Joy to You!

We get so used to trying to figure out what went wrong and why that we inadvertently find ourselves asking and getting answers to the wrong questions.

Last week I found myself banned from all my groups on Facebook… I know right? … I’m not allowed to join any until July 7 either.

I felt so frustrated because I just got banned without an explanation, and I kept asking everyone. Why am I banned? How do I find out? If I don’t know what I did. How can I stopped from doing it again? (I asked in private message you know as I’m banned from speaking in my groups on Facebook)

Surprise, Surprise – nobody knows!

My epiphany this morning is that I’m asking all the wrong questions. Now I get to practice what I preach, right?

I don’t actually want to know why I got bannedI want to know how I can be included in the lives of the people who are important to me. I want to feel secure in knowing that I’m not on the verge of being banished at any given moment.

So – two huge and powerful take-away and prosper items that came out of the “Facebook banning episode”:

  1. I’m responsible for allowing others to feel safe in their relationship with me. How many times in our lives do we reach a place in our relationships where we realize that they’re not meeting our expectations or we feel like our safety or well-being is threatened in some way. Maybe we don’t know what to do next. So we just walk away and never look back.

I’m done! That’s it! I don’t need this! I‘m out of here!

We may be leaving the other person not even sure what they did or what just happened. As we know, our responses to events are a result of where we are on our own path, together with where we’ve been and where we’re going, much of which had nothing to do with that person. So they really don’t know what just happened.

So, just like I had no idea what I had done to be banned from Facebook, (because I had never been a part of the decision that created their reaction) the experience was here to give me clarity that I needed to create strength and honor in my own relationships. 

All experiences are just mirrors of our own lives. That’s what the Dalai Lama means by “Be the Change”. When we see something that’s missing … BE the one to bring it. If I am the one that’s recognizing something and feeling affected by it… I am conscious of it as a reflection of MY truth. A truth that’s making its way to the surface to be expressed by me; through me; as me. 

Every challenge in our lives comes to us for the express purpose of creating opportunity to unveil our true nature and help us BE who we already are. And in my truest nature I desire a life filled with grace and ease. I experience this by taking the opportunity to explore challenges that come up in my relationships rather than walking away hurt and angry. I experience this by seeing that life is not happening “to me” it’s happening “through me and as me”.

When Oprah told us about her daily prayer to God -“Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.”
Her life experiences have created the context necessary for her to bring what she’s learned to help others. And the same is true of us.

My Facebook banning illuminated the path of what my next steps are meant to be. Remaining present in my relationships and finding resolution to my challenges keeps me on the path to experiencing my life with grace and ease.

The 2nd Big take away and prosper item received from my Facebook banning episode is this:

  1. My frustration and angst got so much worse because I was asking all the wrong questions.

 We know for sure that the universe gets to work answering the questions we ask… Without judgment. What I truly wanted to know was,” How can I remain active in my relationships in a loving, powerful, connected way that feeds my spirit and brings all the joy into my space that I desire? ”

Now, on the surface it was about Facebook-but-when I explore deeper I get to see that how I am here is how I am everywhere. However we show up in one place in our lives is truly how we show up everywhere. That’s why we can learn something from one experience and then translate it so easily into the other experiences in our lives. Because we truly are Being who we already are and our experiences are just there to help us illuminate that which we are ready to unveil and express.

So the tool I want to share with you today is from Dr. Dane Heer at Access Consciousness. It’s the discovery part of his clearing statement. It’s a powerful question to clear away the debris that’s getting in your way so you’re able live the life you desire with grace and ease.

Remember earlier I said that I was creating more problems by asking the wrong questions? Well, this is the question that does serve our highest good when we are faced with a challenge or problem that’s feeling anything but graceful and easy.

The Big Question

“What Energy, Space and Consciousness can I BE that will allow me to have total Ease, Grace and Clarity with all of this?”

When I was fighting against my FB banning I just made myself more upset and didn’t solve anything. I never did find out why I got banned and in the end that was not a question that served me in any way.

What does serve the highest good in the face of any trouble or challenge is to stop asking “Why did they?” and begin asking “How Can I?”.  “How can I create joy, grace and ease?”  “How can I connect with the people who are important to me in my life?” “How can I share pictures from our fabulous mastermind getaway and have them be seen by the people I want to share them with?”

“What Energy, Space and Consciousness can I BE that will allow me to have total Ease, Grace and Clarity with all of this?”  What ever my “this” is at any given time.

Blessings to you, Denise

 

Longing to Simply BEcome Who You Already Are?

Are you Longing to Simply BEcome Who You Already Are?
As a Life Purpose Specialist I teach Spirit Centered Women how to partner Energetic, Soul Tapping Principals with Practical Systematic Strategies so you can, essentially, live and BE who you already are …fully expressed.

Leigh High School Oak TreeA concept that is important to begin with is the ability to accept yourself exactly the way you are.

This oak tree  is near the parking lot of my high school in San Jose, Ca. I’ll bet that tree never spent a moment feeling badly about not being a pine tree, or about not having the right branches or trunk.

In fact, that oak tree was once an acorn. And within that acorn was already everything that was ever needed to become the mighty oak. Just like everything you need to become the exact version of who you are has been inside you all along. Your perceived mistakes were simply part of the growth that needed to take place for you to blossom into the beautiful human being you are.

When the acorn experienced the conditions that “made welcome” the self that would come to express as an oak tree, it didn’t try to repair its shell. It didn’t panic and think it had done something terribly wrong to have such a broken shell.

In fact the acorn is naturally coded to become that oak tree.

When we listen and say yes to this inner yes, our life emerges to the next level. But when we resist it, deny it, or make excuses for why we can’t honor it, we get stuck, our life stagnates, and crisis ensues.

But, you don’t have to worry. Our crises are there to crack us open and release the seed of potential inside all of us ~ So we can live the Purpose for which we were born.

That’s when you get to feel the joy of living into your higher truth.

Blessings and Joy to YOU!

Make Welcome Your Dreams

Joyful Greetings to you!
I hope you are doing well and getting the chance to be outside enjoying a shift into gorgeous spring weather.
California is beautiful right now. I’m in t-shirts most days as I formulate my plan for drought resistant landscaping in my yard. Always love an excuse to create. 🙂
Our annual List-a-Palooza is beginning today and I can’t wait. It’s a 90 day interactive list building challenge that’s so incredible FUN! So I wanted take this time to reach out and connect with you for part 2 in this heartfelt and, hopefully, inspiring series. So…
Are you excited to be receiving this series about Simply BEcoming Who You Already Are?

A concept that is important to begin with is the ability to accept yourself exactly the way you are. No judgement or criticism. What I know for sure is that every choice, every decision you have made in your life up until now has been divinely inspired. Even (and especially) the times that feel like the biggest mistakes.
How many times have you looked back at a previous experience that was so painful at the time, only to discover that you wouldn’t change a thing? So much of the turmoil we feel in the midst of achieving the results we have today was actually created by our own resistance to receiving what we originally asked for.
Resistance to BEcoming who we truly are and who we are truly meant to experience as ourselves creates a perception of mistake … not a true mistake.

In fact the acorn is naturally coded to become that oak tree. It releases its acorn identity to completely BE the oak tree it was already destined to become. And, although it is a natural process for us to BEcome who we already are, we fight what feels like the death of our soul. We resist the pain that occurs when our shells crack open rather than systematically creating the conditions that “make welcome” the dreams we already knew we wanted.
When we listen and say yes to this inner yes, our life emerges to the next level. When we resist it, deny it, or make excuses for why we can’t honor it, we get stuck, our life stagnates, and crisis ensues.

That’s when you get to feel the joy of living into your higher truth. Although it is counter-intuitive, the only way to alleviate the pain we resist is to surrender to it. Allow the Process of Transformation that is your perfect Soul-ution.
Have a wonderful day. Blessings to you, Denise

Trying to Fit In?

Happy Spring to you!
 
If you’re anything like me you’ve always wanted to fit in and at the same time you knew, without a doubt, that your deepest truths and beliefs couldn’t be compromised in order to do so.
I’ve often told people that I grew up feeling like a pear in a bowl full of apples.  Pears are great and apples are great … but … a pear is still not an apple.  It was a lonely way
to BE.
owl fitting in
Like this owl who is trying to be a tree in order to “fit in” ~ he does know on a deeper level that he’s not actually a tree.  Just like I knew I wasn’t actually an apple.
What he may not be realizing is that all of the qualities that make him Amazing are the same qualities that make him an Owl. (Can a tree soar? I don’t think so.)
Like You and Me.  The qualities that made us feel seperate from our tribe, growing up, are the exact qualities that bring us together as a tribe now.  They are the same qualities that are needed to help bring love, joy, calm and peacful feelings to a world that seems a bit crazy these days.
That’s why I’m putting together a free series to help us collectivly feel the higher vibration of Joy that we are so naturally coded to feel and to BE.
As we come into alignment with our Soul ~ with the place inside of us that has always been whole and unaffected by circumstances of life ~ we get BE all of who we already are … fully expressed.
If you’d like to receive this deep and heartfelt series just provide your email address at Legendaryleadership.net and let us know where to send it.  
 
Have a wonderful day.  Blessings to you, Denise

Autism Awareness

Autism heart

AutismAs you may know I’m all about giving from my heart and doing my best to help others to feel all warm and fuzzy in their themselves.
Yesterday I challenged each of us to do one nice thing that makes a difference in the world. Today this is mine. I hope you like it 🙂

April is Autism Awareness month so I just wanted to give a shout out to all the folks out there experiencing the Joys, the Mysteries and the Challenges of Living with Autism!

I saw this video on line from “A Night of Too Many Stars” and it was so heartwarming I wanted to share it with you.  Be ready for Goosebumps

Share the Wealth

Valentine VictoryMost of us have heard about the CEO of Gravity Payments raising minimum wage in his company to $70,000 a year. He also announced that he will be lowering his salary to $70,000 a year as well.

He certainly opened up a wonderful conversation about “Big Business” doing more to follow his lead by keeping less as profit and sharing the wealth.

Well, I want to take this conversation one step further. What if every person reading this did ONE nice thing to help another person or organization. What if WE put our money where our mouths are and bought groceries for a neighbor, brought a bag of dog food to the neighborhood shelter, gave gift cards to a homeless man in town, etc.

It really does add up. We can’t decide that somebody else should solve societies woes but we can do something that speaks directly to our hearts.

Are Ya With Me? 🙂

Post more ideas below that might help somebody even if it’s in a small way. Also, post ONE small (or BIG) thing you did to warm the heart of someone else.

You Can’t Have One Without the Other

The key to truly serving the ones who need you most; the ones you know you’ve been called on by the universe to help make it through their hardest times and to help celebrate through their Joyous times is having the Prosperity available to Support your Efforts with Grace and Ease.

The Key to your prosperity is Passion

The key to your Passion is Purpose

The key to your Purpose is Joy

When you let yourself feel joy all the way down to your toes and you get to the end of your work day and have no idea where all the time has gone – that’s when you know you’ve tapped into Your True Purpose.

You’ve heard me say “Let Your Passion Create Your Prosperity” because passion is such a magnificent marker for the fact that you’re tapping into Your True Purpose. This is the true key to having it all and now is the time!!!

Leave a comment below and tell me in 3 words…What’s Your Passion?

Does this Plug you in or Piss you off?

My whole life I’ve been taught this was wrong but deep down in my Soul of Souls I know that it’s not.

“The Art of Self Centered Service”

Well if you were raised anything like me it sounds like I’m trying to say I only care about myself and could never be depended on to care for my fellow man.  But anyone who knows me will tell you that can’t be farther from the truth.

In the Health Care Industry, that has been the largest gateway to my giving nature since I was a teenager, we’re taught to be of  “client centered” service at all times.

Of Course we are, Right? The people we serve are medically, emotionally or physically fragile and depend on us to provide for their comfort and dignity and in many cases, they depend on us to keep them alive. Of course our approach to the work we do is “Client Centered”.

Self Centered or Client Centered? What you need to know is that the two are not mutually exclusive. You don’t have to choose one or the other.  In fact, each one depends on the other for their own growth and development.

Health Care is, by its very nature, a means of being of service.  Many of us choose this business to feed our spirits. When our clients are happy and well served is when we feel the most joy and satisfaction. Really, nobody ever needed to tell me to care about the needs of my clients.  That’s what I’m here, on this earth, to do.

But what if the key to doing exactly that … in the Highest way possible … depended on first being able to practice and master The Art of Self Centered Service?

What if those of us who chose the Health Care Industry with clear Intention and Certainty that this is our calling … What if we discovered that by  learning to practice and master The Art of Self Centered Service was the Key to true “Client Centered” delivery of Excellence in Service? 

When we are exhausted, taken advantage of, injured, our bodies over used and abused all while being pushed to do more … all while being told we’re slacking off or not good enough to mask our injuries and keep giving and giving … That is not being of Service that is being in Servitude. 

The negative impact servitude has on the very clients you want to serve is unacceptable. They deserve to receive your gift of service from a place of genuine compassion.  Being run down and exhausted creates a space of your body and your “being” struggling for its own survival.

The Art of Self Centered Service is the Key to true “Client Centered” delivery of Excellence in Service? 

When you are happy, fullfilled and physically well taken care of does your work and attitude get worse or better?

When you stop at the deli on your way to work and the woman in line behind you tells the person at the register to put your order on her bill as a way of thanking you for the service you provide in the world … Does your work and attitude get worse or better?

I think it’s time to refill your glass.  What do ya think?

Think about it and leave a comment below.

 

 

 

BEcoming Who You Are

IMG_1815

Situations I Don’t Want Bring Clarity about Those I Do Want…

Whenever you know what you do not want, you always discover more clearly what you do want.  So whenever you gain awareness of another person’s undesirable situation or behavior, pay CLOSER attention to the idea of expansion that has just been inspired by that interaction.

And as you learn to do that, not only will you be of increasing value to others, but you will see how your relatationships with others add immeasurably to your own path of BEcoming.

 

Getting Into the Vortex

My Thoughts Join a Powerful Swirling Vortex of Attraction …

In the same way that the Law of Attraction is responding to the thoughts, words, and actions that you are offering here in your physical reality, the Law of Attraction is always responding powerfully to your Vibrational Reality.

When the Law of Attraction, the Universal manager of all Vibrations, responds to the clarity of Vibration offered by your expanding Inner Being, the results is a powerful swirling Vortex of Attraction.
