You are So Plugged In

We are all so plugged in.  It’s with me in my every day.  Constant reminders of just how connected I am.  It’s the two island analogy. It’s the small circle, bigger circle, half circle. We are connected to source, to each other.  WE ARE ONE.

I am fascinated by how for so many years in my life – and I’ve been around for a minute – I still don’t even pay attention so much of the time.  I go through the motions of my life and feel like I am moving forward and accomplishing stuff.  And I am.  Without much of a thought as to just how clearly connected I am.  I feel as though I’m not alone in merely going through the motions thing called life.  Of course, this leads to missed opportunities. missed opportunities.  Yet, I refuse to beat myself up and instead choose to grow, learn, and accept.  I accept my truth that I am so plugged in, and it’s a huge blessing.

I am surrounded by reminders of the connections…thinking about you and then I see your text message.; missing my mom and noticing that white butterfly hovering by my garden; picking up my phone for no reason, setting it down, and having it buzz right then; walking through a parking lot and thinking about the perfect cup of coffee when I am literally asked to be treated to one with an unexpected invitation.  So unexpected, and yet so very, very perfectly telling.  Telling me, I am so plugged in.

My brain feeds me with a rapid fire barrage of ideas.  My brain feeds me with thoughts, concepts, and the perfect starting point for all things in my life; money, relationships, and my hot body.  I know that I know it’s my connection to source.  I know that these thoughts that come at me with such commitment are from the superconscious realm.  There is evidence in just about every day of my life that I am so plugged in.  I am reminded when you tell me how you were just thinking about “that”, whatever the “that” is.  EVIDENCE.

All I have is now.  Now is my starting point.  How cool is that!

I made a commitment recently to pay attention and, here it is folks…FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!  Yes, follow the instructions that I am given through those inspirations, intuitions, and funny feelings I get at times.  I get them while I’m washing the dishes sometimes, or taking a shower.  They show up in a serious way when I’m meditating or doing screen of the mind.  How they come to me isn’t the important part, except for noticing patterns maybe.

The important part is following the instructions.  Frankly, sometimes I get in my own way.  Thank goodness, I have gotten better about tapping into Rob’s voice from up at the Ranch; “stop thinking, stop thinking.”  Yes, I am committed to not thinking and simply following the instructions that life gives me.  Now, don’t get me wrong, at times I wonder why….. Like “this is just stupid…why do I have to go to the store for bananas?  I don’t even like bananas.  Why am I being told to paint, or to put my hands in dirt, or any of it?!?!?!”  It doesn’t make any sense and it doesn’t matter.  My sense is my brain, my logic, my cognitive rational capacity.  These are jewels given to me.  Ahh, hello, this is not from realistic thinking, it’s the plugged in part of our experience. So, I choose to follow my instructions because I am plugged in.  How about you?

Much love

Loving Myself

I am extremely grateful to have found PSI Seminars.  I was at a very low point in my life when my father said to me, “I took this seminar this past weekend and I would really love for you to come to my graduation.”  Little did I know that this was the beginning to an incredible adventure.  All I can remember from the Graduation/Presentation was that it got me thinking…what more could I have in life, what did I want for myself, and why didn’t I already have it?

I was interested and curious enough to enroll on the spot.  My Basic Seminar was about a week later  in Orange County in August 2009.  I loved my experience and I was hungry for more!  Less than two weeks later I was up at High Valley Ranch for PSI 7, The Life Success Course.

The most important value I learned during that amazing month of August was to love myself.  It may sound silly, however I did not truly love myself before the Basic.  I appeared solid on the outside, yet inside I was torn to pieces.  I was lying to myself everyday thinking that I was happy with my life and choices I had made.  I was self-conscious about everything.  Whenever I would walk into a room, the only thing I could think about was what everyone else was thinking about me.  This crazy negative self-talk clouded my mind on a daily basis.  After PSI 7, the old me was no more.  I decided to live my life not worrying about others judgement, opinions, or beliefs.  I don’t recall where I heard this, yet it has stuck with me ever since; “What someone else thinks of me is none of my business.”  This is what I say to myself and all the negativity simply drifts away.  If ever I start to doubt my greatness I can hear those little voices that once were so familiar and now sound so foreign.  I speak louder than those voices with a greater belief in myself, I simply say an affirmation or proudly state my PLD (Pacesetter’s Leadership Dynamics) contract!  One of my favorite things to do is to look in the mirror and tell myself, “I love you.”

Discovering My Passion Over a Burger with Bacon

My journey with PSI Seminars started in November of 2006. I remember driving to a Basic presentation thinking to myself I want to get involved in giving back, doing community service projects, and providing for the less fortunate. I had never done that type of thing and didn’t know where to begin or even what I wanted to do. I arrived at the presentation and a month later I was taking the Basic.

I sat for the first two days thinking I knew this stuff…and then Saturday, “the game”. Ok, so I realized in that moment that although I knew this stuff, I was definitely not applying it in my life. I knew that I needed to look deep into myself and discover what was hiding inside. I immersed myself into all the classes PSI Seminars offered. I enrolled in PSI7 January ’07, started PLD January ‘07, and went to WLS April ’07. Read more

School Today

Little Madison and Makenzy blast into the house. “We’re hoooooome!”

“How was school today? What did you learn?” The kids eagerly recount their exciting day of geometry, English, physics, history, and more.

Adults are immersed in school-of-life subjects such as relationships, work, dreams, finance, health, etc. However, we rarely do the “what did you learn today?” routine even though we attend our schools every day. Read more

A Relationship with Time

A long time friend and I rekindled our relationship between California and New York. During the year the we were rebuilding our friendship, we had much in common. I’d say, “I heard that from Tony Robbins (or some other source), where did you?” And he’d answer, “PSI Seminars.” He told me about some seminar courses and that he staffed something called “MLS“, some sort of men’s class. I didn’t think much of it then.

And so it began. Almost a year later, I was in CA and he mentioned a mutual friend was going to “take the Basic”. I was intrigued & researched without asking him any questions. Before I knew it, I was scheduled to fly to San Diego to be in my Basic Seminar. I didn’t know what it meant then but this friend told me he was to be CHIEF of my Basic Seminar. PSI grads are likely to agree – there are no coincidences here. Read more
