The art of letting go

Always I wait to write a blog till an inspiration will come. I was wondering what I am going to write about this month. And here it is.

Few days ago I was very much involved emotionally in helping and supporting my friend to get a job which fits exactly what she loves to do. The goal was on the horizon, visible, you could almost touch it …

I had a very vivid image in my mind of her achieving that goal and having a job which will bring her a satisfaction. I was so sure that this was an ideal match, I could feel it. Her goal and that job. In a short time some big obstacles showed up and my friend felt that there was no other way, but to change the course of her journey for now; to put everything about that goal aside, for later …

I tried to suggest different options, solutions, thinking out of the box, and wanting badly for her to succeed. I just couldn’t understand why she decided to not pursue that goal; especially that she was far on her way to achieve it. Almost there …

At first, I didn’t see it, as nobody can see the whole picture better than the person whose that journey is. I meditated on it and suddenly it hit me. There is nothing wrong with her decision. It is me who has to “let it go”. It was my vision, not hers and it was me who felt that timing was good, not her. I could almost hear: “Let it go”.

I am thankful for that lesson. We go through our life believing that what we see is a reality, but the truth is that it is our reality, not somebody else. By learning the art of letting go, we accept that there can be other way, other path to choose, in our or somebody’s journey.

The power within

The Lioness Within

The power within

What is this ‘power within’? When I felt a need to offer a workshop ‘The Lioness Within’, I was not sure about details, but I knew that it is an important subject to address. Every person has an inner power, the energy pushing us forward to action and the ability of understanding our worth. But through centuries expectations from society and the way of our upbringing helped us to forget about how important it is for our well-being to recognize and accept that power within.

The model of what is best for us was skewed by needs of society; what kind of a worker, a husband, a wife, and even a student you are supposed to be. There was not a lot of freedom of choice; if you wanted to be a ‘good boy’ or a ‘good girl’ you were fulfilling the society expectancy. Everybody who was trying to be different was labeled a rebel and was frowned upon by the society.

You could have your own style, yes, but only in the boundaries of what was expected from you.  Especially from the time of industrial revolution schools were expected to produce good workers for factories;  to push forward the need of material goods. More stuff, newer, smarter, which supposed to make us happier.

Maybe it is strange that I am talking about that now, but this is part of the problem. We are not supposed to be just good, productive workers during our life who are surrounded by more toys or gadgets. There is more to our lives than that. But we forgot why we are here on this journey. It is so easy to believe in the illusion of our great need of stuff.

We often wonder why we feel that something is missing and we try to find happiness like some kind of mythical animal.  And the big part of being happy is rediscovering our inner power. When we can feel it, understand it, and accept it, we are much happier with our life.  As we know at that point that there is no barriers which can stop us to achieve whatever we want. That it is in our power to go in whichever direction we desire. It is our choice.

It is time to awake; to understand that every one of us can reconnect with our power within and believe in it.

And you can roar …

Connecting with Mother Nature

We are running faster and faster to gather more and more material goods. Stuff – newer gadgets, faster electronics, cars, houses, you name it. We exercise, eat healthy, drink clean water, even meditate to achieve better health, but there is something missing in the equation. Something very important. Continue reading

The power of our mind and written or spoken word

Re-blogged from

I would like to talk today about the power of our mind not as us to be able to make wondrous scientific discoveries or medical achievements, but our mind as a part of us, a gift which was given to us to use wisely.

Captain and the crew

There are two parts to it – conscious and subconscious mind. We think that conscious mind is mainly used by us and subconscious mind is somewhere there as an insignificant part playing a minor role. But it is an opposite; conscious mind is about 7-10% and the rest of it is subconscious mind suppressed and pushed into insignificance. Or so we think.

A lot of times we want to achieve something and we decide: “I am going to do it.” And we Continue reading
