Are You an excellent Receiver?

Standard

A mentor asked me “Are you an excellent receiver?”

This year I am practicing being an excellent receiver by giving everything I need to myself first. And by noticing and appreciating everything else that is given to me. Without any guilt.

It’s easy to over-give in our many roles which might lead to overwhelm and resentfulness towards ourselves and our dearest.

There is never a better time to give to ourselves and to receive from all the sources that wish to lovingly provide for us.

Music is one of these sources.

At home you may simply listen to a piece of music with the intention to openly receive its gifts:

You may choose to receive the rhythm, the melody, the lyrics, different instruments, the voice, the intention of the artist, the invitation to move….

So let’s enjoy receiving the countless uplifting gifts of music together at a Nia class near you!

Don’t save GROWTH for a rainy day!

“Feeling Blue?    Inspired?    Up & Down?”

One of our highest human needs is GROWTH.

This means to “learn & experience new things” in big or small ways.

We can consciously use this knowledge to “get out of a funk” and remind us of our true nature of “PURE POTENTIAL” at any time.

Many Personal Growth experts recommend daily reading, listening to or watching “educational material” in an area we LOVE.

Whether it is for 10 minutes or longer, we will feel a new sense of expansion and be uplifted. It takes us out of any “petty-problem-focus”, will energise and motivate us to grow more.

So let’s schedule some different “ME-Time” to grow more often and feel the difference.

That’s also one of the many reasons why I love Nia Holistic Movement. It is specifically designed to joyfully expand our mind, body and spirit in addition to countless other benefits.

Let’s make 2017 our Year of Strength!

“I want Holistic Strength – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual!”

It’s easy to be happy, healthy and calm when everything is great.

Our true strength shows when the pressure is on, things change or don’t go according to plan. ADAPTABILITY is the true quality for surviving and thriving in our world.

I used to be like “the princess and the pea”. Anything would throw me easily. Mentally, emotionally, physically.

For some years now, I have been practicing “Energy Hygiene”. I am consciously and continuously letting go of “all that weakens me” and am consciously and continuously focusing on “all that strengthens me”.

For example, I continue to let go of: “defensiveness, negative self-talk & lack-consciousness”, and am focusing on my highest energizing values of “self-growth and serving others”.

We can begin by asking ourselves in any moment of our day:

“Is this thought, feeling or action strengthening me?”

“How can I strengthen myself in this moment?”
