If you have ever read a New Age book only to walk away thinking “what the hell were they talking about” then this is for you. If you have ever tried meditation only to be drowned in your own thoughts then this is for you. If you have ever watched Oprah and been left feeling that somewhere along the line you missed the New Age boat then this is for you. Why? Because this is a not another article trying to turn you into a mini me Wayne Dwyer or a clone of Eckhart Tolle, it respects the unique divine creation you are. Repeat after me “I am enough” or put another way “I am therefore I need be nothing more.” I am not here to make you do anything or to make you feel guilty you are not something more because as far as I am concerned the moment you were born ‘you were greatness’.

If you have ever read a New Age book only to walk away thinking “what the hell werethey talking about” then this is for you. If you have ever tried meditation only to bedrowned in your own thoughts then this is for you. If you have ever watched Oprah and been left feeling that somewhere along the line you missed the New Age boat then this isfor you. Why? Because this is a not another article trying to turn you into a mini meWayne Dwyer or a clone of Eckhart Tolle, it respects the unique divine creation you are.Repeat after me “I am enough” or put another way “I am therefore I need be nothingmore.” I am not here to make you do anything or to make you feel guilty you are notsomething more because as far as I am concerned the moment you were born ‘you weregreatness’. Let’s talk about an authentic life where there is acceptance of our humanity,where the fact you had a not so charitable thought because someone cut you off in trafficdoesn’t cancel your “I am good person” card. Let’s have a conversation about what it islike to walk through this world with all of its challenges as a mere mortal rather then asuperhuman. Like two old friends on the back porch on a Sunday afternoon, with nowhere to be and no where to go, we will talk about the life and the little things.To touch the stars you must feel the ground beneath your feet‘Before enlightenment chop wood light fire after enlightenment chop wood light fire.’You have to deal with realities, there is no bill fairy or clean my house fairy or make myfamily love me fairy. No such thing, no short cuts or magic wands or New Age pills Icould make something up if you want and I am sure someone out there would buy it butreality is hard to hide from. The bottom line is you cannot do anything about somethingyou refuse to acknowledge exists in the first place. Some people think they are veryclever and make up an alternative reality, but like I say “you can bury your head in thesand but eventually someone will come and kick you in the butt.”This is the interesting part most of the time the things we fear are actually not that bad itis our own insecurity and inability to deal with them which creates within us a mindset of helplessness. We have the ability to walk through life’s challenges it resides in all of usand can be accessed at anytime. So why does reality scare us so much we run from our truths?Admitting you are human appears to be a difficult thing to do in a society filled withexpectations, assumptions and judgment. Standing naked in your truth or your reality can be tough but rest assured the risk far outweighs the pressure of being someone you arenot or living a lie for a lifetime. What are your realities what don’t you want the world toknow?Dealing with realitySo you finally said out loud “I am in debt and don’t know what to do about it” or “I don’tknow how to have healthy relationships” what next?
 
Give yourself a pat on the back, it takes courage to stand in truth and you deserve to beacknowledged for yours, “well done!” Try this; sit on a chair and have a friend stand infront of you doesn’t that feel a little bit intimidating doesn’t your friend look way bigger than normal? Then stand up and face them how much more empowered does this makeyou feel? Reality is no different when you are down and out everything looks bigger thanit is and when you stand up and face it suddenly it is not nearly as overpowering.What happens next is little mind monsters try and intimidate you into sitting down. Youwill know them when they come by the way they use their words;“Don’t rock the boat don’t make waves if you look at your reality we have to look at oursand that just isn’t going to happen!”“Why are you trying to do this just give up its too hard?”“You don’t deserve anything better I never had a good life why should you!”It is not uncommon at this stage to let doubt and fear in, sometimes shame also creeps inand guilt ‘how stupid am I’ or ‘if I had done something sooner I would not be in thismess.’ Hindsight is a wonderful thing to have and everyone one of us at some point in our lives wishes we could go back and make different choices but that is a pointless waste of energy. Rather than beating yourself up for not being perfect pat yourself on your bacfor being honest about your imperfections. You may have made some choices whichdidn’t have the result you desired but maybe you didn’t have the right tools or knowledgeor maybe you were a little too arrogant, think of it this way a mistake is a lesson waitingto be learnt.When a lightning strike starts a fire which burns out a forest we look at the blackness andthink “oh my how could the anything recover from this there is nothing left?” But whatwe don’t appreciate is the fire is nature’s way of clearing away the rotting undergrowthand giving the seeds that lay dormant underneath the opportunity to grow. When you faceyour reality no matter how bleak it may look there is always a seed of hope underneathwaiting to bring new life in. Sometimes you have to face the darkness of the night toappreciate the beauty of the light.The ‘P’ wordPride the most useless of all our emotions, it is the anchor which keeps you where you areand away from that which can get you where you want to be. So someone thinks youshould be able to do everything your self and you should not ask for help because it is asign of weakness, tell them to talk to the hand because the ears are not listening. Forget New Age theory think about it logically, out there somewhere are the resources you needto build the life you want and you would rather stand in your pride than go looking for them….why in Creators name would you do that for? By all means hold onto your pridewear like a badge keep it to show company but when no one else is around and your reality stares you in your face pride is going to be a very poor companion.
 
Change meets with resistance‘Every action causes and equal or greater reaction.’ No man is an island, I know this society has led us to believe we are not dependant oneach other but again this is rubbish. Whatever you do or say will impact someonesomewhere and in some way it is the six degrees of separation you are always hearingabout go rent the movie. So here’s the scoop when you start to look at your realities andacknowledge them chances are good someone somewhere who has a vested interest inkeeping the reality just as it is, is going to try and push you back down in your seat. Thishappens a lot with families living with a pink elephant in the living room, whicheveryone sees but pretends not to see. No one wants to deal with reality when you starttalking about the pink elephant you make people uncomfortable because now they haveto deal with it too! And chances are they are not ready to do that.Important point it is not about anybodies else’s truth but your own, you have to honor another’s truth’s even if they are a denial of the reality. Their resistance should beconsidered a road block which can be navigated with the knowledge you are honoringyour self and the life Creator gave you by dealing with the things which may be stoppingyou moving forward. It is one of those “I love you but….” moments. However if thesituation is one involving others you might want to travel gently through the terrain rather than going full steam ahead like a steam train, a little give and take never hurt anyconversation.Excuse me but can you help me?We can say those words at a hardware store or a grocery store, we quite happily admit Idon’t know how to build a birdhouse or what aisle the canned beans are on but heavenforbid if we should utter them when it really counts when life has overcome us and wedon’t know what to do next.“Excuse me can you help me please?”Use the resources available to you and if you do not know what or where they are thenask someone who does. And if anyone brings out the little mind monsters to make youfeel less for wanting more then hold onto the fact they are trying to keep you fromstanding because they can only feel big by looking down at you. This is not about you not being enough but about you not having enough, knowledge, skills or resources. You arealways enough in Creators eyes no matter what your life circumstances, he /she simplywants you to manifest your greatness. Some people at this point might go well then if Creator is such goodness he/she wouldn’t let us struggle like this, which is a fair enoughquestion and it can be answered in a few ways. Firstly if Creator didn’t believe in our greatness we would not have been given free will and the ability to make our ownchoices. He is someone saying “I believe in you” and is still saying it. Secondly there are
