You are perfect right now

IMG_5417-0.JPG

Perfection exists in being the best you can be, as yourself in each moment;
In making the choice to live from your truth.

Not because you have to, not to compare or compete or strive to,
But because this is who you are.
Right here and right now; choose to live your truth.

~ M.L Adams

Freedom is a choice

Freedom is a choice
Freedom is a choice

One of the greatest gifts I have found on my journey so far is that of freedom, true inner freedom. I say gift because it is one we all have innately yet so many of us fail to acknowledge it, it can sometimes take a journey of realisation to do so.

This is what happened to me after too many years of living in a place where I’d felt trapped both inwardly and outwardly, now I know this truth and I see it very clearly so much so I had forgotten how so many don’t.

After having this recent insight I felt passionately about sharing it with you to always remember your freedom of choice. To remember you are innately free by the freedom to choose, no matter what. I really do believe it can be this simple, as simple as a choice. None of us are prisoners and even if you are in the external sense, you still have the freedom of choice in what you believe, and in what you perceive things to mean for you and your life.

Choice is our greatest gift and the biggest illusion is in believing that we do not have a choice.

I find it shocking now when I see what some people will accept and in effect to  choose to suffer because they are in this illusion that they do not have a choice, when they really do. If you are suffering in a job, relationship or any circumstance you always have a choice. Always head towards your joy.

As Joseph Campbell stated;

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where before there were only walls.

There is so much truth in his words and doors really do open up before you when you make a choice to follow your bliss.

When we only look externally or at the conditions we may be in, it can appear that we are trapped in some way, but there is always a choice even if only in how we choose to perceive it and this alone can change everything.

The greatest choice I believe is that of either love or fear, one on which everything can be based. In reality we are all free, we only need to choose it for it to be realised.

Your choices are the real gifts you contain;

To create a life of real beauty or pain.

~ M. L Adams

Beyond Position

There’s no right or wrong, Only positions,

Where there’s a choice beyond this; Aim higher above,

In transcendence, non- attachment, With purpose in compassion

Coming from love, beauty, understanding

Seeing all as one; only in love

~ M.L Adams

Trusting in your Intutition

Trusting in our intuition is something we often hear of and how important and useful it is for successful results. The challenge I often found was how do we know what is our intuition or what instead is fear of the unknown.

This has been a journey of realisation for me and I have found one of the most important things is to recognise your intuition (being within you)  is very personal to you and your experience in how you learn to follow it.

With me it has taken me several times in ignoring it and then realising that I would have been better having followed it to realise the truth within. Since having learnt to follow it more things in my life are flowing far easier in the direction I want to go, not only that but I feel happier and  more at ease  in myself.

Following our intuition more often than not seems to involve going against what may appear the sensible thing and sometimes the thing we want to do, and in following it there can be some fear due to the unknown beyond it. Yet if we never step in to the unknown we may never experience anything other than where we have already been, we may never be able to experience that which we are seeking or create new possibilities and achieve our dreams.

If this is something you can relate to then from my experience I would say always trust your intuition, whenever I have not listened to my intuition it has only led me in to pain or struggle. Your heart always knows and it can very much be a head vs heart thing where it can take a while to learn to trust in your heart over your head and it does take courage, but I  know I will now always be drawn to do so and I  hope so for you too. ❤

In my words I would term it like this;

Follow your heart, it leads you to the unknown, where there are gifts you would never otherwise know.

Or as the great Steve Jobs said;

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you want to become.

Holding your vision

When we are on our journey of mission and purpose, we can sometimes get knocked off course, at times forgetting our real mission from the beginning, or even forgetting who we are.

I’ve seen this happen to others and almost allowed it to happen to myself. My message to you today, is to never allow this to happen to you.

Stay firm in your resolve and strong in your mission no matter what happens and most of all never forget your cause and who you really are.

In any situation we have a choice of how to respond, a choice of what to believe and what perception to take

For Example;

If someone attacks us because of their stuff we can choose to react in hurt and anger or we can choose to learn in gratitude, compassion and growth. The latter being a far more powerful place to be and one that will serve you as well as the world as a whole.

We always have a choice of what perception to take and we can never truly know where another persons behaviour originates. When we make a mistake which we all sometimes do we then have a choice to correct it.

We always have choice over our own behaviour and this means everything in terms of the causes we create and the change we can make in choosing to come from love, and from our mission and purpose.

What we choose, can become a part of our journey and how we look back on ourselves within our relationships or situations. We can and do however also change in each moment and there is nothing more certain than change and the possibilities of change.

So then the real question becomes; no matter what situation I find myself in, who do I decide to be in this moment? This is always our choice as well our greatest gift.

With this knowledge and position we can create anything.
We don’t have to repeat anything and we can become all we want to be. Then choosing to create ripples of magic wherever we go.

To hold on to the past or come from a reactive place is to effectively make a choice to live there and be swayed off course. Always know you’re more than that and that your path and purpose is worthy of your 100% commitment no matter what happens.

Then nothing is wasted or lost, only learnt from, we can then instead use our past to empower ourselves and others and strengthen our purpose and mission.

Each one of us has great potential and everyone has the potential to transform. From the power that is truly ours, the transforming power that we have within, to love and make a real difference.

In coming from this space and being the change, we then create ripples of love and purposeful living. Choosing to live at the cause instead of the effect.

Hold your vision

Hold your vision,
Always believe you can,

Act with unshakeable faith,
Without a doubt in your heart

You will always achieve,
Being the best that you can

Choosing your cause over doubt,
Always holding your vision

Deciding your fate
With your whole purpose and mission

~ M. L Adams

To quote Tony Robbins, decide today to live from a place where you are coming from your greatest power in every moment;

‘The greatest power within you, the power to love.’ ~ Tony Robbins

From there know that anything and everything is possible and you’ll always be protected.

Always ❤

Have a beautiful day of being and creating ❤

Letting go of old beliefs

letting go

So often we can be held back and not understand why, we may be aiming for goals and dreams and something just keeps getting in the way or the same situation keeps re-occurring.

If you understand what I’m talking about here then you’ll understand equally how annoying it can be, especially when you seem to be doing all the right thing but something just keeps coming up to get in your way.

Just what is it that causes this?

The answer to this is often quiet simple, it is old worn out limiting beliefs that are stopping us from achieving our goal.

And why?

Well it is most often caused by some event that happened in the past where we have attached a story and subsequent meaning to it, which has then becomes a belief. This belief can either then empower us or limit us and for some time a belief usually will always serve us in some way, often as a form of protection. What then happens is that we continue with this underlying belief even if it no longer serves us, but we hold it to be true, because based on that experience and our perception we really believe it is.

The only thing is now this old worn out belief not only limits us but also affects our perception in many areas of our life and also in our relations with others. In any area we feel limited in some way or where there is recurring issues this is often the case.

After doing The Landmark forum a couple of weekends ago I came to realise some of my own disempowering old beliefs and have decided it’s definitely time to let them go. Most of all is that in the context of today these beliefs are quiet silly and not necessary for me anymore. It is only because they were developed from a young age, that this was how I perceived the world then and then unknowingly held on to it subsequently limiting areas of my life that I’ve been wanting to develop. When I realised this it was super empowering but I also found it humorous how I’d held on to some limiting belief patterns for so long (better to laugh than cry :).

To be held back from something I decided so long ago seems so absurd but we all are doing and have done this for a large majority of our time. We then effectively keep repeating our past in to our future and therefore limiting ourselves and hence why we also get these recurring situations even if we are focusing on something  different, the belief will always win somehow.

When we discover our  false beliefs and decide to let go of them  we can create  a whole  new possibility rather than repeating old patterns or limitations that are no longer serving us. Its definitely one I’d recommend considering. What old beliefs could be holding you back from your new life of possibility?

Grateful without reason

IMG_0922.JPG

Sometimes I’m so grateful I could cry;
Yet I cannot really tell you why
My only knowing is this is through truly being,
Through being me without any constriction

In living in love with all I am seeing;
Where all love is pure, boundless, and openly giving,
To be happy and grateful without reason; is to live in the love of just being

~ M. L Adams

Living Without Regret

The question of what impact do I want my life to have today and in the future often occurs to me. When I ask myself this question it allows me to check back in on whether I’m living purposely in that day or not. The above video is a great  reminder of living with this spirit.

I find there is the potential otherwise to waste  time on things that may become of far  lesser importance when were to look back on them. In this way I can aim to be living in each moment and there for those who are around me. In essence it is a sense of coming from a point of what really matters most and then living from there.

In the below guardian article titled the 5 regrets of the dying, Bronnie Ware an Australian nurse documented the top 5 regrets of patients in their last days. The top 5 she recorded were;

1.) I wish I had the courage to live true to myself not to what others expected of me.

2.) I wish I hadn’t worked so hard

3.) I wish I had the courage to express my feelings

4.) I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends

5.) I wish I had let myself be happier

http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2012/feb/01/top-five-regrets-of-the-dying/print

Knowing these regrets of the dying can really get us to reflect on living a full life where we do not waste our time on things that ultimately don’t matter so much. For all of us it can be slightly different in what we perceive to be most valuable, asking the question what will we want to leave behind is a really good way to understand these, what will be and is most important now? Is it money, the people in your life, the experiences you have? What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind. By  knowing the answer to these questions  we can then proceed to live as much of our days from these values. Some questions I find good for reflecting on this are;

  • How do you want to be remembered?
  • What do you want to leave behind?
  • How can you create the most value today?

If we live from this place in every moment we can be sure to be on purpose, living without regret and knowing  we’ve made the most difference possible with our lives ❤

Live from the  heart

Live from the heart in all you do

Live  from the heart as though everyday could be your last

Valuing all that matters most

Knowing you do your best in all you pursue

Most of all know you wasted nothing,

That in every moment you gave your everything

~ M. L Adams

Be Yourself

Be yourself, express who you are,
You know what works for you better than anyone else
Do what works, forget what doesn’t,
When others criticise just continue on

You know what works and you are on your way
You will reach the peak then others will say;
How did you do it , how did you make it?

Then you will know that the way was only to listen to you,
To truly follow your heart,
Being yourself in all you do

~ M.L.Adams

Being ourselves is when we truly feel in Flow and when we are at our best.
I want to thank you all for the encouragement in doing this and for doing the same too. Miranda ❤
