365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 129: Are You Afraid To Change Your Mind?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

You have the right to change your mind; to change course half way through; to choose something different whenever what you are experiencing right now does not serve you anymore.

Here’s the thing: if you are not happy with your current situation you have the right and you have the responsibility to find what would bring you to a happier place. Once you know what it is, start moving in that direction.

I changed directions many times in my life and every single change allowed me to grow, to expand and to make even better choices for myself. It wasn’t always easy to decide to head into a new direction because I was taught to finish what I had started. So I struggled with the finishing part, until I realized that I do not have to finish anything that does not feel right anymore.

Why spend another month or another year in order to achieve the completion of something that my heart is not into anymore? Wouldn’t that be lost time? I would not be able to get that precious time back, so I give myself permission to stop mid-way, reconsider my options, discover what it is that I really want and make new choices. I set new goals all the time.

It is true that sometimes you might feel like giving up because you are scared, and if that is the case, then I say: keep going. Don’t let fear stop you. Go after what you desire.

But if the reason you want to stop is because it does not feel right anymore to keep going in the current direction, then stop.

Reconsider.

Re-asses.

Give yourself permission to choose something different.

Don’t look back.

Follow your new dream.

Wholeheartedly.

And do not let anyone tell you what you should be doing.

Choose what is right for you.

In every single moment.

And if it does not feel quite right, choose again. And again. And again.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 128: And Because We Are All Connected…

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

… the ONLY way to change what we see happening today in our world is to do our own inner work. Each and every one of us. The transformation starts inside, with how we feel and what we think.

Every action we take is driven by our inside world, even when the actions are charitable, well-intentioned and helpful to others.

We are powering our immediate life and our immediate world with our feelings and with our thoughts.

Are you judging yourself? Are you judging others? That judgment propagates outside of yourself and instills judgment in others. Change it inside yourself first, release all judgment. Your transformation will inspire your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors.

I am inviting you right now to stop for a moment and look deep inside yourself, with complete honesty and see who, what and how you are judging yourself and others. Be honest. Just look. Make a commitment to yourself to see it all. You can only change something that you are aware of. So become aware first.

I don’t know what changing the world means: it is too vast; and where do we start; who is going to start; what do we need in order to do that?

But what I know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, is that I can change my inner world, so that there is no judgment.

And you can change your inner world, so that all judgment stops inside you.

And then… you and I together will teach others to release judgment.

Do you see it now?

It starts inside each one of us.

Feels like a lot?

It is not.

It works.

Let’s do it.

TOGETHER!

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 127: Why I Am Writing These Posts

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I started this 365 Days of Gratitude blog because I believe that we are all connected in ways we cannot yet comprehend. I believe that as each one of us is shifting the inner perception from the lower vibration feelings (anger, fear, shame, hatred) to the higher vibration feelings (acceptance, love, compassion, forgiveness) we become more aware and we help raise the awareness level for everyone around us.

As I am writing my posts everyday I feel connected with you; because of this connection I write with ease.  My words might inspire you to be more, do more, create more; or my words might challenge your belief systems and offer you a different point of view.

Regardless of the fact that you agree with what I am saying or not, as I am writing, I am becoming more authentic and my inner essence becomes more visible to you; as you are opening yourself up to reading something new, as you are willing to contemplate the possibility of a different way of being you allow more of who you truly are to come to the surface.

Our connection allows us both to become less afraid of showing the world who we are and what we can do. Because we are connected, the subtle energy field between us becomes less opaque; it becomes stronger, clearer and more vibrant. And in turn, it starts to affect the people around me and the people around you.

These wonderful ripples of awareness and connection intensify the desire to transcend what we think are our limitations. We raise each other up.

So you see, I write my daily posts because I AM CONNECTED WITH YOU.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 126: Believe In Yourself

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I saw this quote on Facebook a couple of months ago:

“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because its trust is not in the branch, but in its own wings.”

Its origin is unknown, but this little quote contains a great truth: the branch can break or not, but the bird is not afraid; it knows that it can fly anytime and it does not question its own flying abilities.

Can you, for a moment, imagine yourself being the bird?

What is your branch right now?

What are you hanging on to, hoping that it will not break?

What or who are you giving your power away to?

Ponder it for a while.

Sit with this image.

Your branch can be your spouse, your parent, your child, your job, your friend, your lover, your career.

Are you trusting your branch to keep you safe, happy, healthy, fed, wealthy?

Are you giving your power away to a person or a career?

What if you took your power back?

What if you understood that you and you alone have the power to create your life?

What if you stopped being afraid?

How would your life be if you did all that?

I know: I am asking you to answer many questions, and maybe the’re not easy questions to answer.

But answers only come when you ask the questions.

Without a question there is no answer.

So please, ask yourself: “What if I start trusting myself more?”.

What if you start believing that you can do whatever you desire?

What if you start believing in YOURSELF?

Love,

Rucsandra
