JumpStart - Making it

JumpStart - Making it

May 15, 2020

We are far too judgmental of our own behavior.

Whenever we do something we should not see it as an example of bad habits in control.

However, when we do something new that is good for us we accuse ourselves of “faking it until we make it.“

Get this: the moment you do something different, you are a different person – – you are making it.

Today, let’s talk about making yourself into the person you wish to become — starting now.

JumpStart - Morning

JumpStart - Morning

May 14, 2020

love doing my daily LIVE JumpStarts in the morning for two reasons:

The morning is the “rudder of the day” guiding you toward whatever horizon you will end up that evening.

The morning seems to be filled with infinite opportunities and endless time.

Your life is a continuous loop but for some reason you see each morning as an awakening and each evening as a dissatisfaction.

Today, let’s learn how to change our perspective so that the entire day bears the bright promise of morning.

JumpStart - Being Bored

JumpStart - Being Bored

May 13, 2020

George Carlin wondered aloud, “When was the last time you saw a kid just sitting in the yard playing with a stick?”

Good point.

We are constantly staring at screens designed to get and keep our attention and as a result, we are more stressed and anxious today than ever.

When was the last time you were bored -- simply sitting around with nothing to do?

Chances are that rarely happens and yet it’s in our inactivity that we gain clarity, inspiration, self-knowledge and focus.

This is why meditation is so beneficial because it actually pushes the mind to boredom and that’s where the magic happens.

Today, let’s explore the power of NOTHING as we make plans to be intentionally...bored.

JumpStart - Them

JumpStart - Them

May 12, 2020

Who is your “them?“

Don’t kid yourself – – you have one: a “them“ you oppose.

Unfortunately, it’s human nature to divide ourselves into us and them.

Republicans vilify the Democrats and the Democrats malign the Republicans.

To label others we must first label ourselves and we are far too expansive and divine to constrain with labels.

Today let’s think beyond our labels so that we no longer need someone to be in opposition to for the purposes of vindicating our own point of view.

JumpStart - Staying Safe

JumpStart - Staying Safe

May 11, 2020

There’s a saying, “Just because you’re a vegan doesn’t mean the bull won’t charge you.”

You can find a lot of timely truth in that old joke.

The bull doesn’t know you’re vegan and will mercilessly gore you if you walk in it’s path.

Similarly, the Covid 19 virus doesn’t know you don’t believe in it and will ravage you and your family if you expose yourself to it.

This is not a political statement; it’s a statement that I love and care for each of you and want you and your family safe and that’s up to you!.

Medical models have DOUBLED the death rate in one week for one reason only -- states are opening up.

Be responsible for taking care of yourself -- you matter to me and lots of others.

JumpStart - Dogs

JumpStart - Dogs

May 9, 2020

By now, you know I love dogs.

Teddy’s been my canine lifemate for almost two years now but I’ve had dogs around me since the day I was born and during that time I’ve learned a few things about our furry friends.

For example, does your dog seem to sneeze from time to time?

Well, it’s not a sneeze--it’s actually a highly developed communication system used to gain both your attention and agreement.

In today’s JumpStart, Teddy and I teach you a little dog language and help you learn how you can better communicate with your furry friends.

JumpStart - Overcoming Anxiety

JumpStart - Overcoming Anxiety

May 8, 2020

We’ve been talking about anxiety a lot lately.

 

In fact, I did a live meditation addressing anxiety for the members of my Complaint Free Meditation group just yesterday.

 

A friend from the group emailed me a message sent out by our former high school discussing the various ways anxiety shows up for ourselves and other people.

 

Manifestations of anxiety can include:

 

  1. Irritability
  2. Obsessive behaviors
  3. Overscheduling / Overworking
  4. Overindulgence
  5. Dizziness or Numbness
  6. Sleepiness or Insomnia
  7. Lack of Concentration
  8. Avoidance

 

So, have you been anxious during the Covid 19 crisis and, if so, how has it shown up in your life?

 

In this JumpStart we look at the many faces of anxiety and how to become less anxious and more calm starting now.

JumpStart - DisAgreements

JumpStart - DisAgreements

May 7, 2020

People tend to use the words “disagreement” and “argument” as interchangeable -- they’re not.

Disagreeing means to have differing opinions whereas arguing is trying to change the other person’s opinion to our own.

Arguing rarely works and can damage relationships so in today’s JumpStart you’ll learn how to disagree while still being an agreeable person.

More importantly, you’ll learn how to keep your disagreements from spiraling out of control into arguments.

If you’re ready for less conflict and more harmony, this JumpStart is for you!

JumpStart - Finding God in the Coronavirus

JumpStart - Finding God in the Coronavirus

May 6, 2020

I said in a JumpStart a couple of days ago that each of us is loved and protected by God and someone wrote in to say, “I’m 79 and I’ve heard ministers and other people say stuff like that my whole life. But, how can it be true when there are dying children and sick people everywhere?”

That question is more important to consider now than ever before.

If there is a loving God, how can we have global pandemics, war, famine, poverty and suffering?

Today, I’m going to give you my best answer to this question -- one that brings me comfort so that you might feel comforted as well.

JumpStart - Curiousity

JumpStart - Curiousity

May 5, 2020

“The power men possess to annoy me, I give them by a weak curiosity. No man can come near me but through my act.” - Emerson

This is probably one of my favorite quotes ever because it sums up human discord in so few words.

In short, we get irritated at people when we think, “How DARE you be that way?”

Whereas, we remain calm when we think, “Why are you that way?”

If we can remember to use it, curiosity is the key to maintaining peace both internally and externally.

In today’s JumpStart, let’s talk about how we can become less stressed and anxious by understanding that behind every point-of-view is a good intention.
