What You Don’t Say May Count The Most

Posted on: July 29th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Most of us like to talk don’t we? We may like sharing what’s happening in our lives, talking about the state of the world or we may just like the sound of our own voice. I’ve written before about being a good listener, but what about being a good talker/responder? Good conversation with balance can do so much to enrich our lives. We may walk away from a conversation feeling like we have learned something or perhaps we leave a conversation feeling like we have added to someone’s life, helped them in some way.

Having a conversation you feel good about (regarding your part in it) is indeed a skill that can be developed and can most definitely be fun. Sometimes it’s what we don’t say that can have the most value. I’ve outlined some criteria to think about:

Happiness Is A Skill

Posted on: July 22nd, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Each of us has the capability to be good at many things. We may call these things our skills. By definition, it is the ability to do something well through practice. What determines what you’ve chosen to be good at? It starts with what motivates you. What are you inspired to practice over and over until you reach a level of expertise that you are striving for?

Why do you want certain skills anyway? Is it to earn more money, have more free time, to name a few? How about the sheer joy of it all? Practicing a skill that just plain makes you happy?

I have learned through my life experience that my personal happiness, which is all I’m ever in control of, is a practiced skill. Happiness is a practiced skill because our emotions and what happens around us and . . .

Be Aware of The Opportunities Around You

Posted on: July 15th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Have you ever found yourself observing the world and those around you in a less than expansive way? Do you sometimes move through your experiences and later not be able to recollect whom you saw around you, or even where you may have been? I certainly have and it can be very limiting. Limiting in the way of potentially missed opportunities that were waiting for you, things and people you’ve been asking for.

Most of us have heard the term, “staying present in the moment”, which is certainly one aspect of what I’m talking about. Staying present in the moment means that what is going on around you or whomever you’re speaking to has your undivided attention. It means you are fully participating and receiving the information at hand. What is in front of you can contain very valuable information.

Another aspect . . .

Are You Offering the Benefit of the Doubt?

Posted on: July 8th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

What does it mean to offer the benefit of the doubt? It means giving someone a favorable opinion or judgment despite any uncertainty. So in short, not jumping to any conclusion that makes you feel bad, regarding how anyone else is behaving. It means not being reactive and choosing the same negative responses you’re observing. Allowing it to be okay for another to express themselves, however they feel motivated to. Whether you like what it is you’re hearing and seeing or not.

This can be challenging can’t it? If we observe someone behaving in a way that is offending others and ourselves we tend to feel they should not be behaving this way and what are we going to do about it? Haven’t you found you can become vulnerable to their negativity in a manner of minutes and become angry yourself? . . .

Your Path of Least Resistance

Posted on: July 1st, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Does the phrase “Your Path of Least Resistance” inspire a calming feeling in you?

What is resistance? Resistance is what we feel when we 1) don’t want to do something 2) feel any kind of negative emotion 3) push against anything unwanted in our lives.  Resistance is the uncomfortable place we find ourselves when we have blocked off the access to our wellbeing (happiness) and we are feeling unhappy.

Why is it a big deal to be in resistance? Well, it isn’t a big deal because you will eventually feel good again and that’s the instant you evolve. That is the gift of negative emotion. Did you know that? The instant you feel good again you have evolved and you are better than you were before. Wow, that’s a really good thing. But, what about in the meantime? While you’re feeling bad . . .

Why Pay Attention To Your Manifestations?

Posted on: June 24th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

What are your manifestations and why pay attention to them? Your manifestations are everything you are experiencing. They are what you’re attracting with your thoughts and feelings.  These manifestations are showing you in which direction you’re headed, toward what you want or toward what you don’t want.

Did you know that your thoughts are also your manifestations? The thought you just had was a direct result of your previous thought. Did it feel good? Answering either yes or no will give you the indication of where you’re headed next.

When we are in alignment, which means we’re feeling good/happy, we have access to our wellbeing and all the answers to everything we’re looking for and wanting.  These answers come in the form of people, things, experiences and inspirational ideas.  Since the Universe only sends well being our way it’s important to keep . . .

5 Ways To Use Your Internal Guidance System

Posted on: June 17th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Each of us is unique. You already knew that. There is no single truth or formula that works for every person regarding every subject. For example: One diet that works for everyone or one way to be successful in business. There is one exception to this rule and it’s this:

Everyone’s Internal Guidance System holds the key to everything they want.

Your IGS is not found in your brain mixed in with all your cells and logic. Your IGS is found in every cell in your body, encompasses everything that you are and is your connection to The Universe.  Sound too big to handle? You can handle it.

What is your IGS? There are several terms used to describe it, but you’re probably familiar with people describing listening to their gut, or their heart when wanting to make their best choices and decisions . . .

Are You Listening To What You’re Thinking?

Posted on: June 10th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Most of us listen to what other people are talking about, but do we pay close attention to what we are saying to others, let alone the thinking that goes on in our own heads?  It’s probably safe to say many of us may not be.

Much of your attention is spent projected out into the world, as you give your focus to whatever or whoever is able to grab your attention.  Of course it’s of great value to be externally projected, as this is where your stimulus and learning can come from.  What about your own internal world, which is made up of your thoughts and feelings?  This personal world is crucial to pay attention to and nurture because from this place, comes what you create in your life.

You manifest your experience based on your thoughts, which always evolves into . . .

Your Thoughts Create Your Relationships

Posted on: June 3rd, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Have you ever wondered why you have the people you have in your life? What about after you attract them, maintaining the relationship you desire?

We first attract our relationships and then we create them, meaning mold them into what we experience from the people we have the relationship with.  Each of us without exception attracts everything we experience including all other people, based on how we are feeling which has resulted from what we are thinking.

As a bit of explanation, you emit as energy, a vibration with a certain wavelength, which has resulted from your feelings, beliefs and expectations. What you then experience will always match whatever this vibration is. For example: if you are feeling abundant and appreciative you will attract things that make you feel even more abundant and give you more things and people to appreciate. The . . .

Be The Observer of Conflict, Not The Reactor

Posted on: May 27th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

To become the observer means to be fully present to what is happening around you, make clear choices without mindlessly reacting.  Only as the observer can you have a broad perspective. We are used to being fully and deeply immersed in our lives, which can tend to obscure the broad perspective, which is essential when we want a productive positive result in a situation. This is particularly true when we find ourselves in conflict, whether it’s internal, or conflict with someone else.

What is a reactor and why not be one? A reactor is someone who jumps into a situation or comes to a conclusion either verbally or physically without thinking things through. It is generally impulsive and without thought, and can occur very quickly. A reactor’s actions and words can be haphazard and often out of control.  Reactor behavior can . . .
