Radical Responsibility

As a healer, therapist, practitioner, and client, there are so many methods, modalities, therapies, seminars and programs that grace our path to bring deeper insight and realisation, healing, opening, release, and forgiveness.

Like myself, you may have encountered the powerful work of The Journey Method, ‘The work’ of Byron Katie, the ‘Radical Forgiveness’ of Colin Tipping, programs offered through Landmark education, studied ‘A Course in Miracles’, Technologies for Creating with Robert Fritze, NLP, or any number of other methods, modalities, therapies, seminars and programs.

One of the things that these all have in common, as well as to bring deeper insight and realisation, healing, opening, release, and forgiveness – is to take responsibility – Self responsibility, for our path, our journey, our part, our healing, and ultimately our freedom.

Responsibility actual is – the ‘ability’ to ‘respond’ rather that to react – self responsibility is the ‘ability’ to be ‘self aware’ in our responding.

* So, what then is Radical responsibility?

Radical responsibility suggests that we are ‘cause’ in the matter, that everything is happening for us and by us, rather than ‘to us’. That ‘life’ is a direct experiential response from the internal emotional, mental, and energetic goings on within us – and from this – we are generating this experience of life.

We have a direct response to the physical things in our lives and the way we perceive situations and circumstances – this is where we can pause and have self responsibility – Radical responsibility is the shift in seeing that it is we, who make meaning ( consciously or unconsciously ) of what is seen, felt, perceived or experienced.

When we are willing to really look at what is occurring in our life, we can ask:

* Are we responding, or are we reacting to the meanings we are making and attaching to life?

The power of Radical responsibility – is to see the truth ( it may at first require us to heal, to release and to forgive ) and then to ultimately see that all events and meanings, are all our creation, all our own projection, onto the screen that we call life, and that we are the projector.

I’d love to hear – what do you discover by investigating this for yourselves? – just drop me a comment or send me a private message

so much love on this journey, of Freedom Love and Joy

Stopping the cycle of the ‘Meaning Making Machine’

Yesterday I shared, that we are literally inventing our own reality with the stories we are telling ourselves – through the thoughts that we have.

We give everything we see outside us, around us, and in our awareness, all the meaning it has for us. Even by simply naming something, we are ascribing meaning.

Is there any problem with this – with giving everything meaning, or making meaning about life?

Our thoughts, when constantly recycled and replayed in our minds, become the stories we carry. The more we tell ourselves the same story over and over, the faster it becomes ‘true’ to us and shapes how we feel, perceive and behave in the world.

The problem is that not the thought itself, it is that we are believing the thoughts, believing the stories, believing what we see or perceive as reality – we don’t get to see and experience each other and life as it really is – and so ultimately, we suffer.
So, what can we do to investigate this?

Here are some questions that may assist you to both gain clarity and release, an opportunity to be here as we are, story free, no longer living as a meaning making machine – instead, living clear, present and free, freshly in the moment.

Take some time for yourself, find a quiet place where you can really open to what arises for you through these questions, you may want to have a pen and piece of paper, or a journal to jot down any insights or realisations.

There may be a specific event, or a recurrent theme that keeps arising for you – if there is, use that for your investigation – these questions can be used for any situation, circumstances or event, no matter how old or recent.

Start by checking in with yourself, what is going on for you, what am I telling myself, what has happened, what am I making it mean:

1. What’s happening that is making me make this meaning?
2. What are the actual facts for me from this?
( not the he/she/they did or didn’t or they made me or make me feel – that is the next question – here just state the fact – this is what happened – ‘I spilt the milk’  )
3. What am I making it mean about this situation and this person?
( he/she/they did or didn’t, or they made me, or it is…, they are, they aren’t… )
4. What am I making it mean about myself when this is occurring to me?
( I am… I am not… )
5. What is it like when I do this, when I make this meaning?
How does it feel?
How do I feel?
It feels….?
6. What does it cost me when I keep it around?
7. What will life be like with or without this ?
What is it like when I don’t give this up?
What is it like when I do give this up?
8. Communicate what you discovered doing this with the people involved
( or if you can, get a journey process and do a campfire )

It takes courage, to be real, to be honest with ourselves and with others.

There is such peace and freedom in being with life as it is, being open to what is revealed, present to the moment – such a gift we can give to ourselves and each other.

I’d love to hear how this has been useful to you, what you uncover and discover – please leave me a comment, or if it is more personal you can send me a private message.

Much love to you, on this journey of living a life of Freedom, Love and Joy

‘Meaning Making Machines’

What we see, perceive and decide about something, someone or life, isn’t necessarily the truth – our minds are literally ‘Meaning Making Machines’

Have you ever heard this term before ?

I first learnt about this many years ago when I was in my early 20’s and studying ‘A Course in Miracles’.

We give everything we see outside us, around us, and in our awareness, all the meaning it has for us.

We are literally inventing our own reality with the stories we are telling ourselves – through the thoughts that we have.

Our thoughts, when constantly recycled and replayed in our minds, become the stories we carry.

The more we tell ourselves the same story over and over, the faster it becomes ‘true’ to us and shapes how we feel, perceive and behave in the world.

If you are interested in investigating this further for yourself, I will share a post tomorrow with some questions that may assist you to both gain clarity and release, an opportunity to be here as we are, story free, no longer living as a meaning making machine.

** keep an eye out for my post tomorrow **

Who’s ready to take their backpack off ?

Many of us are here are coaches, therapists and practitioners. We support our clients, in becoming clear, in letting go, in being complete, in forgiving, in creating the lives they desire for themselves.

* Are you supporting yourself, in the same way that you support your clients – in becoming clear, in letting go, in being complete, in forgiving, in creating the life that you desire for yourself ?

We can often forget, as coaches, therapists and practitioners, that these very questions, techniques and practices we use with our own client’s, are also so useful for us, in our world, in flourishing our work, our businesses, our relationships, our health, our healing, our life.

I was part of a live training call today about flourishing and growing our businesses – I’m always amazed that while yes, it was about business, about money, about influence, about growth – yet the focus of the whole call, was on taking responsibility and asking ourselves a sequence of questions designed to get clear, to uncover what is deeper, to really feel, explore, to let go, to forgive – yes – to take the back pack off!!!

* You may be familiar with this set of questions, that I’m about to share with you, as you would use them with your clients in your therapy practices, your seminars and retreats – BUT – do you consistently use them for yourself?

This series of questions is called the PCC sequence – Persistent Core Concerns

Take a moment now to look at just one area of your life:
– it may be health or well-being;
– diet and fitness;
– relationships, family or intimacy;
– work, career, business or money;
– mindfulness or spirituality;
– rest, relaxation or even time management;

As you look at this area of your life, start to become aware of what is your ‘main concern’, your ‘main complaint’ that arises here : is it that you don’t have enough time, money resources, or health? Is it that you feel like a failure or a fraud, maybe you feel you are not enough, not skilled enough, inadequate etc.

Whatever arises for you, slowly work though this list of questions, being honest and kind to yourself.

1. What are your more persistent concerns complaints, critiques in this area?
2. How to you actually do this in your life? How does this show up?
3. How do I treat or behave towards myself/others when doing that complaint?
4. What’s the payoff? What’s the positive thing I get from doing that behaviour? What do I feel?
– being right/wrong
– getting to dominate/avoid being dominated
– justify myself/invalidate others
– win/lose
5. What is the cost of actually doing this?
6. What does the future look like with/without those things/behavious?
7. Write down everything that needs to be forgiven or to forgive. Take responsibility for everything that you need to and then give that up.
8. Communicate what you discovered doing this, to the people involved ( or if you are a journey practitioner you can do a campfire )

These questions make the unseen seen, you get to discover the patterns, then you get to consciously choose.

* And, a last question to ask is: what is this worth to you?

This series of questions was only one part of our business training call today – it was amazing and I will share more with you tomorrow.

* So, who’s ready to take off their backpack?

I would really love to hear if this has been of value to you and what you have uncovered – you can leave me a comment below or if it is more personal just send me a private message.

And – if you would like to know more or would like to be a part of this amazing online business platform that has such great support and training like this, leave me a comment or send me a private message and I’ll share that with you.

So much love Yantra-ji

Being more spiritual than …..

* Are you wanting to be free – Free – yes totally free, as you are, to live, love, create, and thrive, in all ways, in all areas of life?

There is always an opportunity for self-inquiry – as I read a quote today from the beautiful spiritual teacher Mooji, this prompted me to ask some questions, that may be of support for you.

* Do you have some idea that being a certain way, looking a certain way, living a certain way, even earning an income a certain way is ‘more spiritual’?

The minds game, the identity, or the ego – is often about being better than, being seen as better than, or more invested in a ‘Spiritual’ identity – rather than being here as we are, living, loving, creating, and thriving.

People will always judge, they are judging us – and – if we are willing to really tell the truth, we find that we are also judging them.

This is especially true around Money and Spirituality

The quote I read today, from the beloved teacher Mooji points straight to the truth of this….

“If you think it’s more “spiritual” to become a vegetarian, buy Organic Foods, practice yoga and meditate, but then you find yourself judging those who don’t do all these things, you fell into an ego trap.

If you think it’s more “spiritual” riding a bike or public transport at work, but then you’re judging those in the car, you fell into an ego trap.

If you think it’s more “spiritual” to stop watching tv because it cancels your brain, but then you’re judging those who still look at you, you fell into an ego trap.

If you think it’s more “spiritual” to avoid reading newspapers and gossip magazines, but then you judge those who read them, you fell into an ego trap.

If you think it’s more “spiritual” listening to classical music or sounds of nature, but then you’re judging who listens to commercial music, you fell into an ego trap.

You always have to be careful about the feeling of “superiority”. It is the most important clue we have to realize that we are dealing into an ego trap.

The ego is cleverly hidden in noble thoughts like to start a vegetarian diet or use the bicycle and then turn into a sense of superiority towards those who do not follow the same spiritual path.” ~ Mooji
* Would you like to investigate the truth of this?

It takes being willing to tell the truth, to ask truthful questions, to be willing to meet the pain shame, and judgement underneath.

* Are you wanting to be free – Free – yes totally free, as you are, to live, love, create, and thrive, in all ways, in all areas of life?

Start by asking yourself this question :

* In what ways or what areas are you desiring freedom?

Take a moment to investigate and open to each of the areas of your life:

• Health – wellness, vitality, fitness, diet, food, exercise
• Wealth – money, income, career, finances
• Spirituality – practice, meditation, retreat, self inquiry
• Relationship – family, partner, children, intimacy, sexuality
• Creativity – art, movement, expression

As you investigate a specific area, you may like to ask yourself these deeper questions, using all of the different ways we experience, engage with and show up in life ( how we see – visual, how we feel, what we think , how we act – doing, and how we are – being )

* Visual:
What do I see when I investigate this area of my life – how does it look, what images arise in my mind, my awareness? What is the visual presentation, the visual projection? What am I hiding, through what and how I present myself visually to the world? – How am I judging myself or others? What is that covering? How do I want it to look? What will that give me?

* Feeling:
What do I feel when I investigate this area of my life – how do I feel physically, emotionally, energetically? What feelings arise in my body, physically, emotionally, energetically, in my awareness? What is the emotional or sensory presentation, or projection? What am I hiding, through what and how I present myself emotionally to the world? – How am I judging myself or others? What is that covering? How do I want it to feel? What will that give me?

* Thinking:
What do I think when I investigate this area of my life – What am I thinking – what thoughts I’m having, telling myself, believing? What am I telling myself or believing physically, emotionally, energetically? What thoughts are in my awareness, what is the mental, thought pattern, presentation, or projection? What am I hiding, through what and how I present myself mentally to the world? – How am I judging myself or others? What is that covering? How do I want to think? What will that give me?

* Doing:
What do I do or not do in this area of my life – how do I do this? How do I act – What actions do I take or avoid? What is the action, presentation, or projection? What am I hiding, through what and how I present myself though my actions in the world or by avoiding taking action in the world? – How am I judging myself or others? What is that covering? What do I want to do or how do I want to act? What will that give me?

* Being:
What is my state of being as I investigate this area of my life? How am I being? What states of being do I use as a presentation, or projection? What am I hiding, through what and how I am being in the world or by avoiding being in the world? – How am I judging myself or others? What is that covering? How do I want to be? What will that give me?

Through the work I offer and what I have discovered through investigating for myself – is that freedom is available in every area, regardless of life or circumstance.

* If you would like support to really Live, Love, Create and Thrive, in any or all areas of life, please leave me a comment or send me a private message and we can have a conversation about what would be most supportive for you.

So much love – Yantra-ji

Hi beloveds, as I get ready for offering something I really love – our women’s gathering today – I am also wondering – Have you ever sat and pondered what your life will be like in a month, 6 months, 1 year, 5 years, 10 years or 30 years?

Over the years I know I have. These were not idle thoughts of wondering, rather intentional nudges from grace, as I future paced from deep meditation or journey process work, revealing always new and fresh possibilities.

From the very core of my being, from a deep soul level, these nudges and whisperings of grace, have always been pointing to creating and living a life where I can be, do, and have anything l desired. A life where l wake up every day feeling, inspired, offering, serving, and experiencing immense joy and gratitude, fulfilled in every area, health, wealth, relationship, home, financial, spiritually – and for those who know me, you know this is how this life is moved and lived.

In following these nudges, I have recently been pointed to opening up to new possibilities and opportunities – as I asked in prayer to be shown, how do we open more, flourish more, be supported more in our financial well-being?

I could see clearly that flourishing our finances was not going to be achieved solely through what l was currently doing as a therapist, a practitioner and offering Satsang – these are my heart offerings – which give me immense joy and fulfillment – but l knew and was being shown clearly this was not going to be the sole avenue for our financial well-being.

Let’s be honest here about money – money assists in creating and flourishing a life you love – whatever that may look like for you.

So, I want to share with you what I have been shown, an online opportunity that has me be excited and marries both what I deeply love, with purpose and integrity while flourishing our financial welling.

During a private training webinar that will be happening in an exclusive Facebook group tonight – Sunday evening at 7pm AEST, the mindset and the strategy of 5 figure plus months online will be broken down.

For those of you who can watch this live – there will be an opportunity to trial the platform/strategy risk free and also be gifted a copy of the ‘l love money course’ to help you create more ease and flow with money.

If you are someone that is wanting to be shown a new way, or searching for an extra source of income and choose to positively impact people’s lives at the same time then I encourage you to seriously take this opportunity to find out more.

You never know……

This one little step you take may be the beginning of a new, inspiring and great journey that we share together …….

leave me a comment ‘Yes’ or send me a private message and l will send you the link.

So much love Yantra

The Vibration of Attraction – Listening and Asking Real Questions!!

It is so amazing what is revealed when we are willing to investigate what is deeper, to listen and ask real questions – I wanted to share this recent personal inquiry, and the questions, as it may be useful for you as well …..

* When I read, listen to, or watch something, I listen from the place of ‘how is this relevant for me?’

Whenever there is change, transformation or any decision being called for in our lives, it is so useful to be willing to stop, to quietly listen, and to ask ‘real questions’ rather than pushing through or avoiding.

There are many times for all of us, where we are faced with big decisions, making significant changes, or taking new and different actions.

It could be facing changes in our home, location or lifestyle, maybe it’s a change in career direction or business, or some type of financial crisis, we could be ending a relationship, friendship or marriage, or beginning a new one, and we could be embarking on a healing, personal quest or spiritual journey.

We may be open to the guidance and vibration of grace, only to find our own vibration is somehow at a different frequency, as though sending out different or opposing signals, unconscious or silent saboteurs that seem to thwart our actions, decisions or intent.

* So as I said, whenever I read, listen to, or watch something, I listen from the place of ‘how is this relevant for me?’

Last night we were listening to a dear friend and colleague Arnold, speaking in the Journey Life Transformation Community, about Abundance and Frequency. Through our work with the journey Method we are often investigating, uncovering and clearing issues around Abundance; manifesting, growing it, letting it go, and these Silent Saboteurs.

* I listened from the place of ‘How does this apply?’ and ‘In what ways does this apply to me?’

We can all have silent saboteurs that may show up as, negative beliefs, emotional shutdowns, cell memories, fears, genetically transferred limitations, or our background, professional, and cultural views that create limitations.

I had a strong response to these words “…should be happy with…”

Even though yes of course I can thrive in, through, and with, grace rather than ‘..should be happy with..’, as these words arose with a strong response, it would be useful for me to investigate this.

Again, it was about listening and asking real questions:

* IS THERE something that is thwarting me in my life, my work, my business, my personal life? Is there something stopping grace from flourishing in and through my life? From really attracting to me those with clarity, purpose and joy!

The only truthful answer for me was “I don’t know?”
So again, asking another question:

* IF THERE IS – what might it be?

I heard the words arise “..Make Do..” wow that was interesting – how many times have we all heard that as a child, or growing up, or even as an adult, that we should make do with what we have!

* How did that have me feel?

The willingness to open and feel, there was anger, sadness, fear, I continued opening and allowing, until again I was totally surprised at what arose – the sense of having no control of my sons death, opening even wider into the despair, opening and allowing the fear, the fear ‘of..’ of being attacked, rejected, shunned – staying wide open and really getting to experience that the ‘of’ is made up, so just allowing the fear and opening into the total relief and joy that is here, into the truth that we don’t know what anything is actually like here, there is only totally open unknown – and wow – opening into the vibration of attraction itself.

Who would have thought this was what would be discovered underneath those few simple words, “…should be happy with…” and “..Make Do..” Who would have thought this was what would be discovered by looking at what may have been underneath attracting ease and flow and grace in my business life. It really is so simple and amazing what is revealed, cleared, and opens up when we are willing to really Listen and Ask Real Questions.

This inquiry can be used in a variety of ways as support, and If it has been useful for you, please do let me know as I’d love to hear from you:

* You may like to use the questions that I have shared as a personal inquiry, asking each one and being open to the arising thought, the arising response, the arising feelings.

* If this inquiry or questions has touched on something where you feel you need support, you may like to book an appointment for a private Consultation or a Journey Process with me personally, you can leave me a comment or send a private message or visit: www.LivingAlignment.com

* You may want to explore The Journey Method more fully by attending a 3 day intensive while Brandon Bays is here is Australia through the link here:
https://ms342.isrefer.com/go/jiae/Yantra/

* Or if you may like to be part of the amazing team of people, who are willing to do the inner work and share this business journey with me – I am so humbled and grateful – just leave me a comment or send me a private message and I will get back to you.

So much love to you all on this shared journey of discovery, freedom, love and joy

Saying Yes – Trusting the Nudges and the Whisperings of Grace

As you know, I love what I do and offer, and my work has been flourishing as I am called to step up more and more by the nudges and pushes of grace, offering, doing, and being used more and more by life itself.

Are you willing to trust these nudges, the whisperings of grace?

Are you willing to say ‘yes’ ?

I am – I have – and I am so grateful.

Some really dear friends of mine were sharing on fb, and this had me intrigued and curious. I wanted to know what they were up to and so asked them to share with me. They spoke about online marketing, affiliate marketing and attraction marketing, they spoke about an amazing platform, and automation – and I said yes!

Yes, show me! Yes, I’ll take a look, Yes, I’ll trial what you are doing, Yes, I trust you, and definitely, Yes, to trusting the whispering and nudges of Grace.

I have to say that through what I have heard and seen and learnt, I am totally inspired by what is possible in such a short time, the financial results being generated, and the way the women, yes, especially the women, are being empowered, inspired, and motivated.

We are from all walks of life, all experience levels, committed to creating a future full of love and prosperity.

The personal and financial results being generated, are through implementing this online organic attraction marketing – showing up as we are, doing, sharing and offering what we do, authentically – which effortlessly leads people with no selling, to the platform and incredible high-end product.

and…..

What I have found by implementing the training through the platform is, that my own work, what I do and what I offer have been hugely impacted, through me showing up and sharing more deeply and authentically as myself.

Listening to the nudges and whisperings of grace has led me to say Yes. This has been an answer to my prayer to be shown, what now, what else? what more? what next?

The love, joy and gratitude I feel is huge, at trusting my dear friends, and trusting this nudge, to open and move forward in this way. How amazing it is, the way grace wants to move us, inspire us, support us, live through us.

So, my invitation to you is this:

Join me to take a look at what I have been shown – just leave me a comment ‘Yes’ below or send me a private message.

What then?

When you comment ‘Yes’, I will add you into a private group, you will have access to a free live webinar training on Wednesday 11 AM AEST you will learn about this amazing online business with heart and soul, that pays commissions for showing up authentically and be able to trial the same platform that I have trialed

and…..

For being a part of this group there is also an exclusive offer being made to you – if you are as excited as I am, you will be able to take advantage of a free 30 day mentoring, tailored to you.

* If you have left me a ‘Yes’ previously and are inspired by this offer, not to worry, you wont miss out. I can add you to this group, so you can check it all out there and be included in this offer as well *

So again, my invitation to you is this:

Join me to take a look at what I have been shown – just leave me a comment ‘Yes’ below, or send me a private message to access this free training on:
Wednesday 11 AM AEST
Be a part of this group and take advantage of this amazing offer.

There will be a Recording made available for all time zones and you will need to be added into this private group for access.

I am excited to share how it can be possible for you too!

How amazing, that we may all get to work together sharing in this love, this joy, authentically being ourselves.

So much love to you ~ Yantra
