Tapping Into Nature for Clarity, Focus and Calm

Tapping Into Nature for Clarity, Focus and Calm

Life can be overwhelming at times. From the stresses of the day to day, work, traffic, interpersonal relationships, etc it can all be a bit much. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were somewhere you could recharge your batteries? Some place beyond the pages of a book, the gym, or the man cave? What if I were to tell you that there is and it is all around you?

Nature has always been a source of healing, renewal, and regeneration. Whether you’re out in your own garden or deep in the wilderness, the natural world is awe inspiring, powerful, and deeply relaxing. The curative powers of nature have been known the world over for centuries. Hippocrates may have said it best when he said, “nature cures-not the physician”.

It may sound a little New Age-y to you, but there is actual scientific data to back up these claims. As far back as the 1970’s, studies have touted the restorative benefits of nature. One study concluded that hospital patients, whose windows face a natural setting, recover nearly twice as quickly as and with far less complications than those whose rooms are without windows or have a more industrial view.

And let’s face it; “getting back to nature” is really just a return to our natural state of being. Communing with nature reminds us of where we come from, because we are a part of the earth. Returning to nature liberates us from all the trappings of a technological society and lets us to exist in our truest state. Allowing ourselves time in nature gives us the opportunity to heal, recharge, and reconnect.

However, fostering that connection with nature isn’t just as simple as going outside. You will want to be in an outdoor space that makes you feel nurtured and at ease. You will need to be receptive to the wisdom that the earth offers. If you don’t immediately feel a connection, don’t worry. Try some deep breathing or meditation. And if you are still unable to feel the connection, then let’s talk. You may be experiencing emotional and spiritual blockages that can be removed by the bioenergetics work that I do. Avenues to love and light need to be open to fully experience the healing qualities of nature.

Biocentrism- Go Beyond Your Limits

Biocentrism- Go Beyond Your Limits

We are often told that our consciousness constructs our own reality, and that its up to us to make manifest our highest calling. But how can we deconstruct the walls or barriers that prevent us from achieving our true destiny?

The answer comes from Robert Lanza’s prevailing theory on how the universe is created. That theory is called biocentrism, and it demonstrates how consciousness is what forms our universe, not the other way around. Up until now, the way we understand the laws of the universe, and the way we participate in our reality, has been limited.

What is Biocentrism?

Quantum physics has demonstrated how biocentrism operates. Everything is made up of atomic matter and energy, including ourselves and the objects around us. Because everything in the universe possesses this potential energy, we can transmute, transform, or change it… if we are so willing.  The universe, in this sense, is not an accident but comes into being through our consciousness. We, in essence, create our own reality.

Change Your Mindset, Change Your World

How does this happen? As human beings, we’ve been led to believe that our path is limited. Our minds have been set, by ourselves and others, to believe that we are only capable of achieving the status quo. Because we believe this, our life plays out according to arbitrary rules. Our true destiny may have been Superman or Wonder Woman, but we’ve settled for an alter ego that doesn’t give justice to our dreams.

That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have a set plan for us. We do have an ultimate path and a destiny given to us by the grace of God. However, it is up to us to set ourselves at a positive vibration that attracts all of the things God intended for us in His limitless universe.

In one of my videos, I talk about using a dry-erase board to erase our doubts and fears.Biocentric theory supports this ability to erase and re-draw our boundless dreams and aspirations. We can create anything in our field to appear, much like Neo in the Matrix. Neo was able to bend a spoon, all because the spoon- which is made up of energy and matter that can be manipulated- is an object of our own creation.

Living Abundantly… and Beyond

Jim Carrey is a great example of someone who understands biocentric phenomena. In this video, he urgently tells us to believe in the possibility of something bigger than ourselves. Jim Carrey explains to us that his special purpose was simply to make people laugh- and because he did whatever it took to fulfill that special calling, he was able to forge his own destiny… and more. By staying focused on the single most important thing in his life, the universe naturally expanded his vision to include all of the things he’s accomplished today.

How does this work for businesspeople? Although I will always encourage you to hit certain quantitative goals, I also want you to think beyond the numbers- which can serve as just another barrier or boundary. If we go beyond that set number, we can think about our success in terms of everything we do, all the people we influence, and everything we have. We can live so abundantly, that numbers can’t even begin to describe our existence.

Business Benefits of Mindfulness Practice

Business Benefits of Mindfulness Practice

“To enjoy our life we have to pay attention to it…We need to foster sustainable performance to use our energy, time and resources in a more mindful and focused way rather than wasting them in stress. We need to be more self-determined in getting on with what we need to get on with at the right time. Mindfulness helps us enjoy our life more, to find more meaning in our life and to help protect us from stress, anxiety and depression.” –Dr. Craig Hassed

Do you know the difference between meditation and mindfulness? The two terms are often used interchangeably; however the practices (while sharing some common ideas) are wholly different from each other. Mindfulness is the ability to exist entirely in the present moment, accepting our thoughts and feelings without judgment. Meditation is the practice of thoughtless awareness, a state of stillness so centered that mind is quiet. It is easy to see why the two could be confused, or how one practice can enhance the other. Today’s entry focuses on how the practice of mindfulness can benefit you and your business.

Ask any business owner and they will probably tell you their biggest challenge is stress. Generally, this stress stems from an inability to turn off thoughts about their business. This is where mindfulness comes in. The tenets of this practice can work in almost any size business, by helping to create an “off switch” and realizing the appropriate times to use it. Mindfulness can help you focus, listen more actively, reduce sick days, become less reactive, increase your productivity and so much more!

Start by identifying the thoughts or tasks that keep the business on your mind. Find ways to either knock out or delegate these tasks. Then allow yourself time and space without distractions to develop your “off switch”. Simple steps like counting or breath work can help us find our center. Other activities such as meditation, exercise, or ample sleep can also aid the mindfulness practice. And always remember, mindfulness is not about changing the world, it’s about changing our relationship with it.
