365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 93: Tying Up Loose Ends

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

 

Here’s a question: what do you usually do when you have off days? You know, those days when you feel slightly out of sorts, things don’t really flow and you’re not sure what to do. What do you tend to do on one of those days?

I am having an off day today and I’m loving it!

Did I get your attention? Yes, I am absolutely loving it! You know why? Because I do not think of this as an off day at all; I think of it as a little down time before the next adventure, the next idea, the next creative day. So instead of feeling bad, unproductive, sad, worried and stressed I relax into the feeling of it and do small task that are easy to complete, do not require a lot of energy and that I never really want to do on a busy, upbeat and exciting day.

Today I have been tying up loose ends: clearing some paper work, tidying up some client accounts, planning some payments for various things, clearing a desk drawer, making a few phone calls.

So today is a calm, stress free and very productive day that offers me the gift of getting organized and ready for what tomorrow will bring.

This is a better day to perceive an off day, don’t you think? Because it is not off at all, it is an absolutely perfect day!

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 82: The Truth is Setting You Free

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Today is a great day! I am excited to share with you this extraordinary tool that I used a few times when other methods did not seem to work.

Today, you will feel the power of a Truth Letter, written with full honesty and without judgment.

This is what you do: set aside some time for yourself in a quiet space in your home, in the woods, at the beach, wherever you are. The physical location is not important as long as you have privacy and you set aside about 6o minutes of undisturbed time. It is important to have enough time, so that you do not feel rushed, so that you can be fully present with yourself, your letter and your unique process in the moment.

I want you to stay open and release the resistance of your mind. This process will take place in your heart, in your emotional system, so ask your mind to watch but not interfere. You can do this. Have your Truth Letter handy.

Sit down, close your eyes and do the Square Breathing technique for a few good minutes. Take your time, this is important. Your body will relax; you will feel calmer, quieter, ready to release emotional clutter, ready to let go of what does not serve you. Anger, pain, shame, frustration and hatred eat away at your well-being and weaken your immune system. Breathe and get ready to release this emotional debris that has been holding you captive for a long time.

In this deeply relaxed state, imagine the person your Truth Letter was written to. I want you to close your eyes and call them to join you in their energy form. It does not matter if they are still on this earth or if they have passed away; if you call them from your heart, they will come without hesitation. Breathe and wait a few seconds and then remember them in great detail, as if they are physically right there with you: their face, their hair and their clothes; their posture and facial expression.

One important thing here: when you call this person to join you, he or she will arrive in their essence; there will be no anger, blame, finger pointing or judgment on their part either. They will be the observer and they will listen fully and with compassion. The connection you are creating in this moment is sacred and takes place at soul level, it is above blame and guilt and shame.

Thank them for how quickly they responded to your call and then, keeping eye contact with them in your mind, read them the letter from beginning to end. Read your letter out loud, as if they are right there with you. Keep breathing throughout and remain calm. After all, you are speaking the truth about how you feel. If your emotions become too strong and you start to feel overwhelmed, stop, close your eyes, return to the square breathing until your heart slows down and then continue reading. Read everything you wrote but do not judge them if you are remembering certain events and circumstances. They joined you at your request so that they can truly hear you and be a witness to how you feel, not to be told what they did wrong. Remember, this is not about them; this is about YOU and you alone. As you are reading your Truth Letter, do not get involved with the story, do not get sucked into the past drama of your pain and upset. Just read how you felt then and what you feel now.

Read them the entire letter and at the end hold their gaze. They heard you, they heard every word you said and they understood your pain. You will see it in their eyes; you will hear their words; they will say “I am sorry”; they will truly mean it. Thank them for coming and for listening to you fully and for being a willing witness to your deeply buried pain; then say good bye, thank them again and let them leave your awareness.

Remain in this sacred space of healing and allow the deep release to take place.

By speaking your truth, you are cleansing at a cellular level, releasing deep seated emotional residues.

Breathe.

The truth is setting you free.

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 81: The Truth Letter

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

What I am about to share with you today will allow you to connect with yourself at a really deep level and release emotional clutter. This is powerful and it works, but you must be willing to take responsibility for your own feelings.

If you are ready, let’s do it!

Think about a person in your life whose actions affected you negatively. If you can still feel the hurt, anger, blame or pain than this is the perfect thing for you to do right now. So set aside a half an hour of undisturbed time. Put your phone away, turn off the computer, radio or TV. Take a pen and a paper, sit down in a quiet spot, breathe deeply and write this person a letter. You will not send it to them, so give yourself the gift of honesty and write exactly how you feel. This emotional cleansing technique is not about the other person, it is about you and you only.

In this letter, tell them everything that you want to tell them. How hurt you felt, how hard it was for you, how much trouble their action or inaction created for you. Do not blame them and do not tell them how they should have behaved differently. This letter is not about them, what they did or did not do; this letter is about YOU, how you felt or still feel as a result of their actions. This letter is about you learning to express your feelings and emotions, to own them and to share them without blame.

I want you to pour your heart out into this letter. Be ruthless in your honesty and hold nothing back. Nobody else will ever see this letter, so please do not censor your feelings or your thoughts. You have the right to feel everything that you are feeling, so do not make things lighter or sugar-coat them. Just say it as it is, write down what you truly feel and refrain yourself from judging and finger pointing. Just state the truth of what is in your heart.

You can do it. Sit down, write the letter today.

Once the letter is completed, sit in the awareness of your emotions and notice  how you feel, now that you got off your chest everything you wanted to say.

Tomorrow I will teach you what to do with it.

Love,

Rucsandra

 

 

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 79: Clutter?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I will share a secret with you: whenever I need to feel instantly better during a stressful time when I do not yet know what the answer to my problem will be, I choose a drawer, a closet or a room to de-clutter and clean. From an emotional and energetic perspective, this is a powerful cleansing technique. By throwing or giving away the things that you do not need anymore, your energy becomes clearer. Your environment is an extension of you and if it is cluttered, so are your mind, energy field and emotional system.

Does that seem like a huge task? GREAT! Are you wondering “What do you mean: great!?!?”.

Well, if it does seem like a big job, it means that by completing it, you will feel a huge difference.

Energy is all one. Everything that you are and everything that you have create YOUR ENERGY. You are not separate from your mind, your physical environment, your emotions and everything else around you.

If your physical environment is cluttered, so is your mind. Cluttered drawers and holding on to things you do not need anymore or never really needed or wanted are equally creating and being created by emotional clutter.

Your emotional well-being reflects and is reflected by your clean, clear, clutter free environment.

I know that you might feel quite overwhelmed by the idea of starting such a big job, but it does not have to be that way. Let me show you how to do this.

Take a notebook and a pen and walk around your home, office, garage, storage area and write down everything that needs to be done. Do not hold back, just write everything: laundry, paper stacks, closet stuff, kitchen drawers, bills, magazines, bathroom drawers, books, garage shelves. Write down everything that needs to be done in no particular order, or use different pages for different rooms and areas.

This task might take you a week or two to complete. There is no rush, there is no pressure. Just do it. Write everything down.

With every single thing that you are writing down, your mind will get clearer because you will not carry all these tasks and things to do in your mind all the time. The paper will hold all this for you.

You are in fact decluttering your MIND in the same time.

Your mind is meant to reason, think, judge, create and find solutions. It is not meant to store hundreds of cleaning and repairing tasks.

Go to work, start today!  This holds more power than you think. I will teach you how to do this in an easy and stress free way in tomorrow’s post.

Love,

Rucsandra Continue reading

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 77: Clearing Confusion

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Question: I would like to understand the “noise” that I often experience in my head or the feeling of being pulled in several directions with my thoughts and how I use alcohol to quiet down this confusion.”

Answer:

The noise that you are referring to is created by the dissonance between what you truly feel, or want to say or do, and the actual words, actions or lack of action that you are allowing to be part of your experience. This dissonance creates fear, overwhelm and restlessness. It leaves you feeling suspended and trapped, with no way out.

You feel confused and being pulled in several directions because you do not fully understand yet that only YOU have the capacity to create your life as you desire it to be. Nobody else has the power to create YOUR life, but you. Not your parents, not your spouse/partner, not your job, not your bank account, not your friends or relatives; you are the sole creator of your experience.

Many people feel exactly what you feel and use coping mechanisms to ease their internal discomfort. I did too when I did not know my own inner power and true nature. I too used to believe that my life was created by others, by events and circumstances. I felt overwhelmed, powerless and uncomfortable all the time.

What I want to tell you right now is that underneath it all there is one powerful, beautiful being: YOU. This being knows more than what you were taught to believe about yourself. YOU, the powerful, beautiful and expanded YOU knows how to be silent and listen to what feels right and what does not.

So, from now on, when you feel confused and hear “the noise in your head”, just sit there and ask yourself why you are uncomfortable. Let the answers come to you. THEY ALWAYS DO, since YOU know them already at a deeper level. Even if you are not prepared to do something about what you find out, just allow the awareness to set in.

There is nothing bad or wrong with what you feel, it is just a signal that some adjustments need to be done by you, in your life, in order to restore or create your well-being.  Allow the new ideas and feelings to come to surface and sit with them, breathing deeply for a few moments. You do not need to take action right away. First, just get used to listening to yourself.

And then go and have your glass of wine for your pleasure and enjoyment, not as a “coping and running away from YOU” mechanism.

The more you allow yourself to just be and observe your inner dialog and unrest, the clearer your answers will become. This in turn will build your internal stamina and from that vantage point you will make the necessary corrections to bring yourself to a place of well-being and ease.

All is well.

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 72: Shattering False Limits

RUCSANDRA's PICTUREHave you ever had the experience of creation? Of course you have. And so have I. The great question is what is it that you are creating? Are you creating what you truly want or are you allowing into your life experiences that you do not desire?

Scientists have proven over and over that all energy is interconnected with all energy everywhere. They have shown that this energy is receptive to the human thought and takes the form communicated to it by the beliefs of the observer. Quantum physics teaches us that we have the power to change the world around us through the thoughts that stem from our beliefs, meaning that our feelings are the fuel that powers our creative energies.

If we believe that healing the body is possible then we can direct our healing thoughts to the energy that is the physical body and the body will change according to our belief. If we believe that the diagnostic given to us is set in stone, then we will give in and believe that there is not much we can do. A fantastic book that I recommend whole-heartedly is Gregg Braden‘s “The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits”. It is worth your time, especially if what you are reading right now is challenging your core beliefs.

If we believe that money is hard to make, the energy that creates the world around us will vibrate to match our belief and money will be hard to come across.

If we truly believe that we have the innate right to experience a wonderful, loving relationship, the world around us will start to shift and change and arrange in such way that the right person will be placed on our path. The belief that it is possible we’ll allow us to see and to feel our way towards the creation of that wonderful relationship with the person we attracted.

Do you see how much power we have? How magnificent our lives can be? How much joy and lightness we can experience in our day-to-day life and also share in our interactions with others?

Is it easier to picture this possibility? If not, taking a good hard look at your beliefs will bring some light into your creations. Sometimes we need help identifying what it is that our beliefs really are, so if you feel that you do, there are many resources to help you on your quest. Just set your intention to become aware of your beliefs and to understand what they are. Your thoughts and beliefs shape all your experiences. So, believe now that you can see where your creations have stemmed from and that if you don’t like them, then you can change your thoughts to change your experience.

Do you know the difference between a thought and a belief?

A belief is a thought repeated enough times and with enough conviction that it becomes a truth for your subconscious mind. From that moment on, you lead your life according to that specific truth as well as all other ideas that you hold to be true.

Here’s to new beliefs that will fuel your true desires!

Love,
