The Ultimate Paradigm Shift: A Tale of Two Realities

Paradigm Shift Quote

We’ve been students and teachers of human potential, the nature of our reality, and the deeper meaning of life for a few decades now. We have explored the vast realms of spirit and the fulfillment that comes from bringing spirit fully into form. In the process, we discovered elements of what we now call the Ultimate Paradigm Shift.

Science is now proving universal truths that many of the the greatest minds in history have repeatedly shared through the ages. Unfortunately, few have really heard them. These truths are observable and many people are seeing that truth is stranger than the fiction humanity has created about the nature of reality.

Evidence is mounting that the way most people understand reality has everything turned around and upside down. Continue reading

In the Zone: Where It Happens


Being in the zone… remember the thrill of being fully engaged in something that intrigues and enlivens you, sparks your creativity and problem-solving?

It might be singing or dancing, writing or videotaping, healing or coaching, or the wonder of playing with a child or pet.

After the thrill is over, we come back to everyday routines and maintenance, and if our life is relatively in order (for the moment), we are happy and content.

four-ways-toget-inBut lifting yourself into the zone is part of a joyous life, the place where so much is unknown, exciting and possible. Here are four fun ways to get  there:

1. Dream and live your dream.

There is a magic in thinking big. You may have a dream of a better world: social justice, racial and sexual equality, a protected environment and more. To find a way to contribute, consider your talents, skills and interests. Therein lies the key to making a difference.

One lady we coached wanted a world that had a more functional medical system. This inspired her to pursue energy work to follow her heart and make the world a healthier place.

Wealth & Happiness: Are You Buying Happiness?

What do you spend your money on? Part of happiness and wealth comes from how we spend our money.

use-resources-well

Social scientists and researchers explore the ways people spend money and how it creates happiness. They sometimes divide spending into two basic categories: spending money on things and spending money on experiences.

Both areas can be rewarding or wasteful, depending on how you use that symbolic paper or credit that you have. Plus it’s not an either/or choice, with one way being better than the other.

Here are a few points to note…

Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence: Keys to Our Awareness

Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence Quote

In our work as holistic coaches and trainers, we continue to be amazed and inspired by the way everything is connected. Within each of us, a beautiful wholeness – an integration of the body, emotions, mind, and spirit – is occurring as our awareness of our true identities emerges. Everything in our inner and outer experience is significant in relation to the big picture of who we really are: wonderful spiritual beings who are here for a reason, each with dreams and unique gifts to share.

Isn’t this perspective inspiring?

The transformational potential of our emotional and spiritual intelligence is a key factor in our journey to wholeness. This potential also applies to our intelligence at the mental and even physical levels of our being. Exploring these vast inner resources has taken us into new territories and higher heights that have transformed countless lives.

With a holistic approach, you can become aware of how the body, emotions, mind, and spirit contain pieces of the puzzle of who we are and why we are here. Awareness is a key and each level of our being can speak to us in profound ways when we learn how to access our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual intelligence.

/

There are many obstacles as we progress through life. Some energy or emotional blocks are common– yet they can be quite obstinate to remove, even if hidden in plain sight.

They can stop you in your tracks. Here are three big, common showstoppers and a way to overcome each of them.

1. Pleasing

Being likable and agreeable can be part of your social graces. But it can also be an anxiety-producing tendency: to be accepted and liked no matter what.

Accelerated Spiritual Awakening and Transformation: Three Shortcuts

Many on the spiritual journey long for a deep spiritual transformation. We’ve been there and maybe you have, too. As we advance spiritually, we stretch limits to reach into the unknown and awaken to the divine presence of the soul. Within each of us, a beautiful butterfly is waiting to emerge.

Spiritual Transformation Butterfly

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.

– Richard Bach

We often describe spiritual awakening and transformation as a reality shift or paradigm shift. As the caterpillar grows wings and learns to fly, each of us evolves and rises from one plane or perspective on reality to another, where everything is more expansive. We call this the Ultimate Paradigm Shift in our book and course by the same name.

What does Spiritual Awakening and Transformation Involve?

This has been a key question and area of fascination for us over the years. We’ve explored the nature of the spiritual journey as seekers, coaching and healing students, then innovators and experts. We’ve always had a keen interest in spiritual transformation, along with the stages each of us must pass through as we awaken to our true identities.

We’ve studied a variety of spiritual traditions, scientific breakthroughs, and leading-edge perspectives. Like many people, we experimented with different things, and discovered that many are dead ends or slow roads that don’t seem to be worth traveling. Fortunately, for the last 20 years since we started Awakenings Institute, we’ve had the benefit of observing how transformation occurs in hundreds of our own students and clients.

Create More By Doing Less

Hands Creating More Light

Create more by doing less? There is a “value of doing nothing,” as Pooh’s Little Instruction Book noted.

First, let’s clarify. What does it mean “to do” something? In today’s world doing is often filled with a crammed list of activities. We end up being overscheduled and overworked.

Multitasking, we seemingly “do” a lot, but we often sacrifice quality for quantity, swept up in a daily momentum. In truth, we are always “doing” something. But what is it we are actually doing?

As we dig deeper here, let’s see if we can figure out this unsolved “mystery of doing.”

Mental and Emotional Blocks: How “Set Points” Keep You Stuck

Emotional and Mental Healing Quote

By Jane Mountrose, with Phillip Mountrose

Have you ever put effort into losing weight, improving your financial future, or realizing a dream and ended up back where you started? Nothing could be more frustrating. This kind of situation can also take a hit on your self-esteem, leaving you feeling like a failure.

Maybe you want to have better health, more prosperity, or supportive relationships, but somehow your dream seems to evade you at every turn. If this is happening, you may have encountered an emotional or mental block, a “set point” that keeps you stuck. We know how annoying this can be, because we’ve been there ourselves in our careers, our health, and our ability to prosper doing the work we love.

Our struggle with set points took us on an enlightening journey where we discovered the keys we and so many people with dreams of better lives are seeking.

7 Transformational Habits for Spiritually Minded People

Transformational tips and tools…

A growing number of people want to bring more spiritual depth into their work and life. Here are seven practical ways:

1. Follow your heart.

Your heart is more than just a muscle that pumps blood. It connects with and informs the brain. What’s more, it connects with your soul. “The heart is … the light of truth,” as Ramana Maharishi said.

Your heart opens you to your inner truth and wisdom. Your heart, in effect, becomes your own personal wayshower, showing you how to live and love more fully. “You gotta have heart…”

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye”

— Antoine de Saint Exuper
