FEAR OF GETTING WHAT YOU WANT
JULY 14, 2010: What if everything you wanted came true? Could you handle it, would you accept it, how would you know it's real. Are you still skeptical in your spiritual life so much so that when what you want is being handed to you, you still don't know how to be with so much grace?
The greatest fear is not of what we don't have or of suffering or of pain but of actually being happy. Of getting what we want as a result of living a spiritual life. It is not easy to grow into spiritual adulthood and live the life of our dreams for then what will we have to complain about?
If addicted to drama and the voices of complaint or seeing the world as lacking abundance and then one day the results of your efforts of living life as a good person get rewarded then what? Are you so stuck in the old mental habit of seeing what you don't have that when you get what you want and need you still don't know it and contract? Only you can grow up. No one else can do this for you. Only you can handle the truth (Satya) and know and receive the gifts the universe is offering you. It is all right here, right now.
I AM EMPOWERED TO APPRECIATE MY LIFE!
Enjoy this mantra and see what is. Be your beauty today. Love, Silvia
MARCH 30, 2010: “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” -Dr. Seuss
Dr Seuss is a stud for sure. As you know I’ve been selling my house. I have bombarded myself with ever more complicated questions related to why no one comes to see my house, why I can’t sell it, why did I pour a gazillion extra dollars in this last year to prepare it, why did I list it lower than I wanted to…and on and on. Well bottom line is that complicating my life with too many why’s and questions is only hurting me. The answer here is simple.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ~Leonardo DaVinci
I am now trying to learn from this whole thing as it has been a really challenging form of yoga for me. I have come to realize that just like collecting poses doesn’t make you happy, well collecting too many chairs, tables, and “stuff” hasn’t made me happy either. So now I am simplifying. I am learning what Vernon Howard means “You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.”
On the mat we look for ways to conserve energy, to become more efficient and simple or subtle in the practice of asana. Therein lies its beauty or Shri. And the more we practice simplicity in class the more clear headed we become to recognize and seek that off the mat. We certainly don’t come to yoga to practice being more complicated! Which I looked up means Thorny, Dense, Convoluted, Intricate, Difficult, Problematic
Ugh. That’s not anything I want. I aspire to Lao Tzu description “Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” That is true abundance.
The reality is that life is simple. We can see the Shri in the world around us more easily with less stuff in the way! So may we all be satiated with what we have, not over stuffed and with courage may we will simplify those areas of our lives that feel thorny, dense or difficult. Peace in all ways, Silvia
PS THE ANSWER? It is love.
ABUNDANCE OF HAPPINESS
Lokaha Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu! (translation below)
May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom for all!
So essentially it is as Einstein asks us, “Is the universe friendly?” How would you respond? Do you see life as happening to you or for you. On a regular basis do you talk about life being against you or for you? And the most wonderful thing is that even if you are happy right now you can still be 100% more happy! Or if that seems like just too much to embrace what about playing the 10% game as suggested in this same book by the author? Try it, you’ll love it! Enjoy, Silvia
10% GAME: ASK YOURSELF IF YOU CAN BE…
10 Percent More Accepting
“Today I will be 10% more accepting of myself of others and of my life”
10 Percent More Receptive
“Today I will be 10% better at receiving help, love and support from others”
10 Percent More Honest
“Today I will be 10% more honest with myself and with others”
10 Percent More Authentic
“Today I will be 10% less edited and 10% more real”
10 Percent More Trusting
“Today I will be 10% better at recognizing how life supports me”
10 Percent More Grateful
“Today I will be 10% more grateful for everything that is happening my life right now”
10 Percent More Open
“Today I will be 10% more openhearted”
10 Percent More Present
“Today I will be 10% more open to the idea that I really am in the right place at the right time”
WILL HAPPINESS MAKE YOU RICH?
May 28, 2009:
Dear Friends in the Flow,
Have you ever thought about it? I have.
Will practicing Yoga make you rich?
And if yoga as is written in ancient texts shows us how “Living from your authentic truth releases your vital energy in the world so you are the fertile expression of yourSelf - not an illusion - which has no real energy to grow.”
Well then will HAPPINESS MAKE YOU RICH?
Think about it if you are happier then you are more creative and productive at work, at home, in life. And the feedback loop works pretty well here, there is a causal relationship between how happy we are at home with how we perform in our work place. And if something is out of sync we get in our own way. Spiritual practice teaches us that Life is always evolving in the direction of happiness if we can learn how to stop sabotaging ourselves. Yoga provides us that opportunity to REBOOT. We get on the mat to cleanse the mind so we can see more clearly and be the most fertile expression of ourselves in the world. Through this practice energy slumps or stuckness or stagnation is cleared and the flow of more creative loving energy expands. When we are our happiest our energy flows and abundance in the form of currency, love, and peace increase.
So tonight surround yourself with positive vibration, meet other friends in the flow and as John de Kadt from his CD “This Rhythm is Not Mine” sings “Feet fingers tapping toes...move your bones where the rhythm goes...dance your dreams...discover what your body knows" Join me this evening at 7:30pm Level 1, let’s all Get Rich in Love and Life! Yours with blessings, Silvia

LAW OF ABUNDANCE, LAW OF ATTRACTION
APRIL 13TH, 2009: This week join me in class to focus on a philosophy of living life BIG & BRIGHT, without limitations. Now of course we can't control everything that happens around us or the choices that others make but this need not limit us. You have in a sense a "magic wand' that can transmute even the greatest challenge into an opportunity for greatness. Ghandi said, "be the change you wish to see in the world." Through the energy of your thoughts, which demonstrates your perspective, you can experience your limitless potential for happiness, peace and most of all love.
The thing is you are already choosing moment by moment what you want your life to feel like, be like, look like. No one else is choosing your thoughts for you. Consider it like this, (1) your heart and mind create your reality so you must be able to create other views, (2) if you can create different perspectives (victim, martyr, champion, lover) then you must have more than just one choice so that means you can choose which perspective you want. Well then why not accept responsibility to see your life as limitless in passion, prosperity, and Love?
There are two simple universal laws to better appreciate this: The law of abundance simply put says you can't be resentful and receive abundance at the same time. They can't co-exist, you have to choose one or the other. You either think you're running out of stuff & are being picked on, victimized by the universe or you are grateful for your blessings. You either focus on what you don't have or acknowledge all that you do have. You see and say YES to opportunities surrounding you everywhere or you force limitations on yourself and say no to life at every turn. These are mutually exclusive. The law of attraction says Like attracts like. Positivity draws in more things that are positive. Negativity draws in more things that are negative.
What you put out there to the world comes back to you amplified. You can't look to someone else to manage your dreams or to highlight your potential to the world. You must do it yourself. A boss I had at PwC once said to me, "no one wants to see you promoted more than you do yourself". We can engage in negative self-talk, self-doubt and obsessive worry but these will only create negative energy and won't get you promoted or loved or anything else good. Instead, if you think of yourself as your own "brand" and everyday you have a choice to promote your brand to the world as amazing & brilliant you will attract to you the best life possible.
The world will give you back what you're sending out. So make this Spring a fresh start shift your perspective to one of INFINITE potential so you love yourself more, so you love your day more, so your love your life more! Silvia
