Don't spread the discontent

Often we  are a cluster of pain programs and suffering. Natalie Merchant's "Break Your Heart" lyrics "don't spread the discontent, don't spread the lies" is excellent advice to move past that stage into one of contentment. 

You have heard it a thousand times from me and other self-help guidance counselors to "think positive" or "love yourself first." Of course you know that is what you are supposed to do. So why aren't you doing it?

The Shame of Thinking Positively

Thinking positive isn't always well received by our peers and authority figures. Often when we come to our bosses with good news, they shame us into noticing what is broken and needs to be fixed. We get obsessed at looking at what isn't working as a way to try and encourage it to work. 

Our peers perceive our positive thinking as naive or thoughtless. They see us taking our eyes away from what needs to be done to focus on the flakey behavior of "free thinkers" and rebels.

See if you can find your positive-thinking shamers and as kindly as you can, ask them to help you shift. Make them your biggest advocates for positive thinking. If they aren't up to the job, or you don't feel like you can ask them, work on releasing their opinion from the top of the meaningful pile. Try and reduce how seriously you take their opinion and know they are projecting their own limitations onto you.

Suffering to Deserve

Another thing we often do is "suffer enough to deserve."  Sick enough to deserve help. Worked hard enough to deserve a break. Struggled enough to deserve something better. 

Catch yourself "suffering to deserve." Shift it up and allow yourself permission to deserve from a different place. Deserve help because we all desire connection and to help each other. Deserve a break because you are always doing your best. Deserve something better because you have learned from your mistakes and are ready to learn from your successes too.

Expectations and Assumptions

You cannot pretend you don't feel bad, that is suppression of your energy. But what I am suggesting is to check in when you are stuck in automatic pilot with feeling bad. You can feel bad and then give yourself permission to feel good.

Even when you look around and don't see any good yet. This isn't a fake it activity. This is just about realizing that in what you expect to see is what you will see. If I suggest to you to notice all the blue cars on the road today, you will. Your mind enhances what you focus on. If you expect to see kindness and love from people, you will. Change up your expectations to find negative experiences lurking around every corner. Change up your assumptions about people and how you will be treated and see what happens next. This doesn't mean there won't be people who will hurt you or be rude, but your mind will hold onto the positive experiences more easily.

Here is more on how beliefs are driving your experiences from my Coaching Club videos.

Your Diving Board - Past, Present and Future = NOW

I often get my messages in metaphors that relate to my life in some way. It is so I can interpret the language of the cosmos into a way that can be (somewhat) understood. Our ability to perceive the vastness of this information is limited by our own systems, perceptions, etc. But I feel what ever is needed will come through, regardless. That being said, I am going to share my personal message I received this week. I often have long, in depth conversations in my sleep (it is challenging to by my husband and sleep next to me :) ). This one came in  my sleep by I requested to remember it so I can share it with you.

I was shown a diving board as my spring board into the next place I want to go into my life. It was balanced, springy, and ready to launch me. Then it was explained that this was a metaphor for being weighed down by either past, present or future. I am always striving to be in the present moment, but what that mean is a combination of my past experiences, my current experience and my thoughts on the future. Not just the present.

The back of the diving board represents the past. If it is balanced, it provides support for the board and allows it to extend out over the water. If it out of balance the board may fall over or prevent the board itself to be springy.

The board itself is the future. If we are stretching ourselves too far out into the future with our worries and concerns, the board is very long and we could walk down it forever before we get to the end, and most likely won't be able to be supported by the past and present.

The end of the board is your present, your launching off spot. If you are in the past, you are still on the steps, if you are walking down the board you are focused on the future.

I hope this is making as much sense to you as it did to me. :)

Bottom line, the past has made you who you are and adds value to your moment, but isn't something to focus on. The future is out there and you can make goals, but give yourself places to jump off from rather than keep extending your board to a place impossible to reach. Then...get ready to JUMP!

Insightful Inspiration for the week

Use this metaphor to examine your own life. Is your diving board in balance? Are you able to use your past to support you rather than hinder you? Are you able to give yourself places to jump off rather than constantly push your thoughts into the "what ifs" of the future? How can you bring yourself into balance and prepare yourself for the next leap? Remember, you can always go for a swim, get out and do it again for the next experience.

Have a nice swim! We are all still learning so let yourself have a break from the "perfect".

Just tell me the answer universe... I need specific instructions

IMG_2097I posted a request for topics to my Facebook page with no luck with input, so I will inspire myself once again. IF you have a topic you would like me to cover, please email me at lholitza@insightfulinspirations.org, make a comment here, or find me on Facebook.  This week I got a call from a guy asking me "how accurate are you". This is an interesting question that I know many more people want to ask, but I can tell you this... I have NO idea. :) Most of my clients do get back to me on some level. Validating me. Thank you, by the way. Others, I  may never hear back from again, or don't hear updates on. Also fine, since I can't store everyone's readings in my head or I would forget my own life. So I guess, I don't keep track. All I know is it is my intention to provide the most help possible to the world through my gifts, end of story. For the most part, I think I do.

This leads me to the real question behind this person's "how accurate are you" question... can you give me answers to my life with 100% certainty that it will turn out for the best. Which inspires my blog this week. We are presented with thousands of paths a day to take, what to eat for breakfast, which way to take to work, which friend to call, etc. Most of them we take without even thinking. Knowing we are headed in the right direction. Every once in awhile we hit a new road we haven't come upon before and worst of all, it has FORKS! Then the mind begins to work. "Which way do I take?" "How do I know it is the right road?" "What if it is the wrong road?"

Our mind goes nuts with trying to figure it all out until we are laying in the middle of the road, not going anywhere. Why do we do this to ourselves?

Basically, from the cloud I get to sit on occasionally, I can see, every choice we make is just a path. Bear and lions on that path, maybe, but we always do what we need to and learn what we came to learn to once again join the bliss that is our spirit, a.k.a. you die. So, what is the point of it all anyway? I don't know, figure it out yourself. Jeez. :)

Onto my real point which is that we think we want specific instruction to this thing called life. We think, we want someone else to tell us the answers. But let me tell you, 9 times out of 10, when I tell someone the answer, they still go out and do it the hard way, because they choose to have the experience of learning it for themselves. It would be so boring if you knew how your life turned out, who you would marry, what you would do for a living until you died. Part of the fun is NOT knowing.

My role, as the clairvoyant reader is to give you higher insight, to help you enjoy the ride, experience it to the fullest, and elevate yourself as a person. NOT to give you the map to your life that you are leading. That is your job. Draw it as you go.

Insightful Inspirations of the week

What do you keep asking other to give you the answer to? Maybe you want someone to tell you what job to apply for, which person to date, or just which book to read. Yeah, gather suggestions, that's how we know what is out there to choose from, but decide for yourself. Don't give your power away to anyone else, thinking they know better than you. This week, notice where you are afraid to make decisions for yourself, where you second guess the path that you are on or look back with regret.

No one knows you, better than you! Trust yourself and enjoy your choices, or suffer through them and enjoy the lesson. Either way, it is your life, live it with the knowledge that you are in charge. The universe only guides us along and gives us help to meet out goals. The agenda is ours to behold!  For good or for bad, it is more fun to have the choice, than have it all planned out and predictable. Boring!

Have a spontaneous week!

Know true joy through true sorrow.

MasonDoesn't it seem like every inspirational, amazing person out there has a sad story to tell about their past? People like Oprah and Louise Hay have these amazing, struggles from the bottom to the top, stories to tell. It seems like you have to come upon hard times in order to truly be an amazing person. Go figure! I am not saying everyone has to suffer to be good or amazing. But it is difficult to know yourself if you haven't experienced the spectrum of life.  You have to test yourself on these levels to truely know yourself! See the article I just wrote on testing your "good and "bad".

As the a spiritual person, I am often seeking to be higher vibrating, more open, and a better, lighter person. But in doing so, I can not deny myself the opposites of those things on some level. I can not pretend they don't exist in my world, because they do. Rather than ignore them or reject those "bad" things, I choose to learn from them, experience them if I must and allow it to teach me to go higher. It is that concept of  knowing true joy through true sorrow.

Insightful Inspiration of the week

Test yourself on something you would label "bad". Perhaps it is an emotion, like anger. Perhaps it is an idea about how much money you "need" vs. what you can't live without. Just dig in on a topic you have put on one side of the spectrum and believe you must at all costs not cross. What would happen if you did cross it? What are you telling yourself about this? Can you let that belief go a little bit? Remove the resistance to that opposite end, maybe even experience a version of it.

This is an awesome time in your life to rise higher, meet new challenges and be even more authentic than you are today. But you can't do it without exploring all sides of the situation first. Have fun with it. Push yourself and be that next level of YOU.

Have an awesome week. As always comments are welcome or start a discussion with me on Facebook.
