Monday Mantra: My Truest Version of Self

Do you want a fulfilling life? Stop trying to achieve your goals. I actually do mean that. Just maybe not in the way that it sounds.

I saw a headline over the weekend with an eye-catching title, “You will succeed if this is your number one goal.” It caught my attention immediately, but mostly because I was skeptical. Who is to say what succeeding is? What should my ultimate goal be, and who is someone else to tell me?

Drops from the Universe

I’m not afraid to say it—I’m a fan of Train. Yes, the band. I have this memory from when I was a teenager of my Mom and I driving in the car and blasting Drops of Jupiter. It’s a great memory, brings a smile to my face every time I think of it. And, that’s a very roundabout way of bringing us to today’s topic—drops from the universe.

Giving Up in 2018

First things first, it’s 2018, happy New Year!

In the third year of GMG I’ll be laying out more content, guided meditations, and tools for self-connection. I am so grateful for your readership and happy to share this next year of growth with you.

I know it’s New Year’s and not lent, but as I look into 2018, my resolutions aren’t to add more to my to-do list, instead it’s to give things up—especially when it comes to self-talk.

Mo’ Money, Less Problems

I spent $300 on one shirt. And though that may seem extravagant, it was that action that helped me step into the power of my own self-worth.

Honoring The Season’s Change

Last night we celebrated of one of the biggest fall milestones—Halloween—inching us closer to the end of the fall season. As more leaves hit the pavement and the nights turn cooler, I’ve began to reflect on cycles.

Monday Mantra: Out of My Element

As mindful guys and gals we’ve done our inner work, at least some of it. We’ve looked at the parts of our personalities that could use more compassion or less fire and we’ve improved. One thing I’ve noticed about myself this past week is that when I get out of my daily routine those bad habits I’ve worked on in the past, like being overcritical of myself and others, can creep back up and try to take over my mind once again.

Guru Mind: I Don’t Have An Inner Voice

Almost every week I refer to “your inner voice,” but what does that actually mean? It’s a deep sense of self-value, taking action that honors that value, and constantly pushing against societal norms. At least, that’s where my inner voice guides me.

Mostly people are open to the message of their inner voice or inner guidance system, but on occasion I have people say to me “I don’t have an inner voice,” or even more, “I don’t know what it sounds like.”
