DAY 303: Cleansing Your Emotional System

 

cleansingYou need to cleanse and rejuvenate your emotional system in the same manner that you cleanse your body through diet and exercise, through showers and bathing, through sweating and sleeping.

You can do it through meditation, keeping a journal, or simply by sitting alone in a room, relaxing, breathing and getting in touch with how you feel and why.

What matters most is that you are completely honest with yourself about what you feel.

The capacity to respond to life’s flow of events from a place of emotional cleanliness and internal balance exists within you and within everybody else.

Your interactions with others will stem from understanding and compassion, leading to powerful connections that are creative, healing and life changing for yourself and for the people around you.

In that quiet space of inner balance, synchronicity becomes the norm, things flow with ease, solutions present themselves to you and your inner struggle stops.

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 108: Giving It Your All

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Giving it your all in every moment does not mean that you work harder, push more, get more done and cross things off your list faster. What it means is that you open yourself up more, that you allow yourself to be fully present, that you decide to give yourself and others a break, that you choose to really hear what others say to you and what you say to yourself. It might seem like an easy thing to do, but from what I see, very few people are able to do that. Why? Because being present means that they become aware of themselves and what they are truly feeling. And that scares them.

How about you decide right now that you are willing to be more present? You do not need to make big promises to yourself, just be willing to do something different.

Your willingness to allow a different way of being will start to change things in your life. You will slowly start to feel more ease, more flow and less strife; your relationships will improve and you will experience synchronicity.

I say, go for it! It is worth giving it a try.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 57: Emotional Cleansing Part 5 – Without Struggle

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Excerpt from Brandon Bays’ book  “Freedom Is”:

“Unfortunately, most of us became conditioned to the idea that struggling is good and makes us strong, and we feel guilty if we take even a few spare moments to relax. But ironically, it is only when we completely let go into full relaxation that true genius and creativity become available.”

Struggling is not good and it diminishes your inner power. When you are in touch with yourself and honor who you are what you feel, there is no struggle.

I want you to arrive in a place without struggle inside yourself. The EM-CLEANSE posts will continue and I will teach you how to cleanse at the emotional level.

By paying equally close attention to the quality of the foods you eat and the water you drink, to the thoughts you think and to the methods of physical exercise you choose, to processing your feelings and clearing your emotional system you can create a more balanced body, inside and out and a more balanced life, inside and out.

You need to cleanse and rejuvenate emotionally in the same manner that you cleanse your body through diet and exercise, through showers and bathing, through sweating and sleeping. You can do it through meditation, keeping a journal, or simply by sitting alone in a room, relaxing, breathing and getting in touch with how you feel and why. What matters most is that you are completely honest with yourself about what you feel.

The capacity to respond to life’s flow of events from a place of emotional cleanliness and internal balance exists within you and within everybody else.Your interactions with others will stem from understanding and compassion, leading to powerful connections that are creative, healing and life changing for yourself and for the people around you. From that quiet space of INNER BALANCE, the power to create your desired life multiplies and you will find yourself in all the right places at all the right times. SYNCHRONICITY will become the norm, things will flow with ease, solutions will present themselves to you and your inner struggle will stop.

So what do you think? Do you believe now, as I do, that your emotional cleanliness is important and worth paying attention to?

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 4: Synchronicity

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Before I wrote my first post three days ago, I shared with you that I had this idea to start a year long journey of gratitude. Well, this is not quite the whole truth. The idea was born out of a moment of alignment with something greater than me. As I was thinking about the Facebook challenge, I was in resonance with the energy of gratitude and in an inner state of coherence. I felt grateful for so many things; I felt so light and full of joy that all I could think was that every single person needs to know this secret: gratitude heals our wounds and sets us free. The words started to pour into my mind, so I sat down at my desk and posted my intention to start the 365 Days of Gratitude and write about it, so that others can learn about the power of gratitude and use it in their own lives. So, you see, the idea reached me.  And then I took action; I sealed the deal so to speak. I made a commitment to myself and to you, because I had just felt what I now know: there was a greater purpose for me to start this journey. How do I know? Because the Universe/Source/God (or whatever name you use for this great energy that we are all part of) gave me a sign.

OK, I can imagine some people rolling their eyes after reading my last sentence. If you are one of them let me explain, and then you can make whatever you want of it. I will relate to you two events that happened since I started my posts.

On Day 2, after trying to write about a different topic and encountering laptop slowdown and words slowdown, I went to take a shower and then wrote about Water. My words were then typed with flow and ease. I published the post and a couple of hours later, a client sent me this email: “Rucsandra, I smiled when I saw your gratitude piece on water – during my class at Mitrea Wellness today water kept coming up and the teacher joked that it was a “water class” – we and your studio are in harmony!”. The class happened before I published my post. I smiled too, and felt grateful for paying attention to Water.

On Day 3, which was yesterday, I wrote about Ioana’s healing journey following her stroke, but did not write about the fact the she was killed in a motorcycle accident 4 years ago. I would not have shared this with you today either, because I know that I will write about her death later and tell you about one of the greatest gifts I have ever received. But now I had to tell you, because of what happened yesterday.

Yesterday I wrote the first draft for my post about Ioana and then went to have breakfast with my friends from Vancouver who were returning home in the evening. I decided the night before to take them to Marchè on Bay Street, because it’s close to the subway, it has great architecture and many food choices. At the restaurant, I realized that my last time there was about 6 years ago, with Ioana and my friend Fraser, whom I have not seen in a couple of years. I felt a little giggle coming up and sent a smile to Ioana to thank her for inspiring me that day.

And now, get ready!

As I was relating these very facts to my friends, Fraser walks into the restaurant!! He had a breakfast meeting right there, while I was there, on the day I wrote about Ioana.

What do you think now? Was that a sign? It was for me. I will write this blog every day for a full year, because it feels right, true and powerful and because of the synchronicity. The Divine/Source/God/Universe gave me signs two days in a row so I know that I am doing something that will inspire others, that will help someone find the gift in a great challenge, feel gratitude for the challenge itself and become free.

“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.” – Dr. Deepak Chopra

Today I am grateful for the synchronicities and I am ready for the miraculous!
