Use all of your potential

Only 5% of our awareness is conscious, working in the logic and rational left brain. 95% is unconscious - 95%! Logic thinking, rationalizing and analyzing are not always the smartest thing to do, honestly it's rarely the smartest thing to do. When we unleash our full potential, our intuition, our emotional intelligence, our silent experience and knowledge - that's where the magic happens. 

This is something I need to remind myself of often. I'm so caught up in my left brain all the time. Sure, I meditate and do yoga daily, and in those instances I leave the left brain out. I spend time in nature and I go on silent retreats where I dwell in the unspoken wisdom of my soul. But still, in my daily life, when going about my day, I'm so entangled. 

I practice letting go. I practice surrendering. I practice being more than doing. Feeling more than thinking. I practice. I'm far from there. But practice makes perfect, right?

How much time are you spending in your limited 5%? 

With all my love,

Own your choices

The ability to make conscious choices is one of our greatest superpower. We're constantly making them but mostly unconsciously. But remember this, you are the sum of your choices. All the choices that you have made so far in your life has taken you here. It's not only the really big ones that matters, the small ones also shapes your life. 

Remember the movie "Sliding doors"? Gwyneth Paltrow plays a character who in one scene misses the metro and in a parallell scene she catches it. We get to follow her life as it unfolds totally different in the two versions where she either caught the metro or missed it. This is all of our lives, there are no coincidences. 

Your life unfolds depending on your ability to make choices and follow guidance. Small, daily actions directed in the way you want to go will form your life. Sure, life might interfere and cast you in a totally different direction, but, nonetheless, there's your choice again - what do you do with this unplanned event? 

With all my love,
