Leveraging Your LOA Superpower

Posted on: February 24th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

We get a lot of input about what it takes to be an effective conscious creator: appreciation, finding better feeling thoughts, releasing resistance, etc.

But rather than feel like we have to master all the LOA skills out there, what if we just focused on doing one thing really well?

Would that be enough to successfully manifest what we want at will?

Marcus Buckingham teaches muggles that instead of trying to be good at everything, people are better off leveraging what they’re naturally good at. He makes a strong argument for why that’s effective.

Does this same principle translate to creating our own reality?

I believe it can.

Rather than try to master the art of affirmations, and pivot all the negative thoughts, and learn how to allow, etc. – what if all we did was focus on one particular alignment practice? Like having fun, or . . .

Letting Your Emotions Drop You To Your Knees

Posted on: February 18th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Letting your emotions drop you to your knees? I know it sounds extreme, and it may not necessarily be literal. It is however, part of an important process that will help you feel your emotions completely and then be capable of releasing them.

We all have emotions and sometimes they feel good and sometimes they don’t. Many people find themselves thinking that if they let themselves feel their negative emotions too intensely, they aren’t living in a positive way.  People come to me feeling stressed that they aren’t feeling positive enough and have started to judge themselves and others around them for their lack of positivity. I tell them no one can stay positive 100% of the time and you aren’t supposed to.

Many feel confused about what it means to live a positive life.  Living a positive life doesn’t mean that . . .

Are You Too Busy To Be Happy?

Posted on: February 11th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Someone I care about recently said the most interesting thing to me. In my effort to be a better friend and family member, I often ask how those close to me are feeling and if they’re happy. I imagined that others might appreciate that someone checks in with their mental state occasionally.  I’ve come to realize it’s a loaded question.

Her answer really shocked me. She said, “I’m too busy to be happy.” I asked her why that was the case?  She thought again and added, “ I think I’m too busy to know if I’m happy.” Well, either way, it didn’t sound like a fun way to be experiencing things.

If you don’t know if you’re happy you won’t be able to do what it takes to be happy.

I really believe that each of us wants to live a happy life. . . .

Empathy Without Attachment

Posted on: February 4th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Each of us wants to be supportive to those around us, particularly the people we really care about.

Most of the time this can involve sitting face to face with them or over the phone, hearing all about the problem(s) they may be currently having.  They may be someone that requests our time often with their cares and worries or an occasional friend that needs a sympathetic ear. You may even find yourself feeling dread at the prospect of being with them because you leave their company feeling badly.

Have you ever wondered how you can support the people you care about without ending up feeling as bad as they do? I have found that most people feel they can only be a support to their family, friends, co-workers etc. if they lower their own energy level to whomever they are with, . . .

What Size Is Your Thrill?

Posted on: January 28th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

One of the ways I feel the most joy is to be out in nature. I don’t spend a lot of time outside nearly as often as I would like, mostly because I don’t make the effort and I find a million other things I feel I need to get accomplished. Having lived out in the country for several decades, I know this is where I find the most peace.

My husband and I recently decided to return to Chile, South America, which is one of my favorite places on Earth. It most likely is because I spent much of my childhood there. As part of the trip, we booked a fly-fishing trip to the Southern part of Chile as it is famous for its catch and release trout, snow capped Andes Mountains everywhere you look, and the most turquoise colored . . .

What Are You Thinking And How Are you Thinking?

Posted on: January 14th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

There are many ways to delve into your own thoughts and also someone else’s. I want to explore two different ways of thinking about your own thoughts and also  exploring other people’s thoughts.

Have you ever asked anyone what he or she is thinking, or has anyone ever asked you?  Some people love to be asked to share their current thoughts and others may resent the perceived intrusion into their private mind.  How do you feel about being asked?

I used to think it was a lazy person’s way of starting a conversation until I started to ask others and myself why this question is ever posed. Here are some things I found in my casual research.  You may want to know what others are thinking because:

~ You really do want to start a conversation.

~ You are trying to determine someone’s emotional . . .

What Do You Consider A Wasted Day?

Posted on: January 7th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Each of us has a different definition regarding what we consider to be a wasted day, based on how we prioritize what we want to accomplish in any given day and also in our lives. I would like to explore some of these definitions and offer you an expanded perspective so you never feel like you’ve waste a precious day.

Have you ever said to yourself or heard someone else say, “today was a complete waste.” What did you or they mean? Was it a waste of your time, energy or effort, or did you just not accomplish what you set out to?  If you got yourself out of bed this morning how can it be a wasted day? It isn’t practical to think that you will accomplish everything you want to everyday, but every day of our lives can have . . .

What Is A Mistake And How Can You Stop Making Them?

Posted on: December 31st, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

I sometimes start my articles with the literal meaning of whatever the word or subject I’m about to write about. It can help inspire me and often highlights the difference in my own point of view. What is a mistake? We often think of mistakes as: understanding or interpreting something incorrectly, making a wrong judgment, or to blunder in the choice of something, to name but a few definitions.

What if I told you it’s possible to never make another mistake, or at least the absolute bare minimum? It may sound like a bold statement, but it is within the realm of possibility. I’m going to share the process with you, but first I want to delve into the anatomy of a mistake as we generally might view them.

What are some of the feelings associated with making mistakes? Thinking we have . . .

Throw Your Cares To The Fire

Posted on: December 16th, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

Thoughts are energy and every thought you have has an energetic power that is emitted from you. This affects how other people feel around you. Don’t you feel the energy from others? Being around some people feels really good and being around others can feel really bad. You are feeling their energy, which began with their thoughts.

So, on one hand your energy is emitted out, but this energy is also held in your body and can become stuck. Positive energy held will enhance you and feel good, as it contributes to your wellbeing. Negative thoughts (energy) that you hold in your body block off your wellbeing feel bad and can eventually cause physical discomfort and disease. What types of energy do you want to release? Any thoughts and feelings that feels bad, such as worry, anger, grief, limiting beliefs, fear . . .

The One Minute Mood Spiral

Posted on: December 10th, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

Last weekend my husband and I decided to take a much-needed break from our condo remodel schedule. We don’t get to the movies as often as we would like but we just wanted to sit in the dark and be mindlessly entertained.  This kind of setting is when I often hear things that really inspire me, and get me thinking. It happens during those times when I’m relaxed and simply listening.

Two people in the movie were having a simple dialogue about emotions, I think. Then one of them said something I found to be such a truth.

“ It takes 10 times longer to put yourself back together (emotionally) than it does to fall apart.”

I thought wow, why is that? How can it be so easy for us to spiral downward and feel bad and then struggle to regain our wellbeing? . . .
