Getting Off The Merry-Go-Round

"The most profound way 
to practice releasing resistance 
is to see clearly 
how we don't want to let it go." 

-- Gabrielle Bernstein 

Often when we are learning or expanding on a thing or our thinking, we feel that we fail to be perfect at it, even for the level we have achieved, and so we can beat on ourselves about failing, missing the mark, not being there yet, or whatever. Gabrielle says that "we can forgive ourselves for not doing things perfectly, and we can forgive ourselves for holding on to old patterns. Honoring this shadow side of ourselves is the way to heal our resistance." 

Gabrielle adds, "Our happiness is a direct reflection of how quickly we can restore our fear back to love. . . The miracle isn't how well we avoid fear; the miracle is how quickly we return to love."

As I go through my day, and I feel that low vibration of a fearful thought, such as anger, resentment, disappointment, and such, when I realize or become aware what I am thinking by paying attention to how I am feeling, I can accept and honor that, and then, I can choose again. I can choose love.

It's kind of like going fast on a merry-go-round, then getting off and trying to walk a straight line. We may be caught up in it for the moment, but in a very short time, we can return to clarity and better control.

We're here to support you as you decide to get off the merry-go-round. It is an empowering decision. Call Jennifer House at 530-310-6123 and let's see what we can do together.

Becoming A Butterfly.

"Beautiful are those
whose brokenness gives birth
to transformation and wisdom."

-- John Mark Green

I don't imagine that butterflies struggle to become butterflies, which is something so much different than what they were. I think that they simply are that, it is fully accepted, and look at what comes of that. We need not struggle either; albeit, we often have done so.

To move beyond our own historical acceptance, we may need to become broken. That doesn't mean that we need to struggle. Being broken can be such a wonderful thing because in so doing we break through those barriers of historical agreements like a chick breaking out of its egg to see life from a different, and most often enlightened perspective.

Without the brokenness, we remain in the egg so to speak. As we are willing to change, we are invited to break some of those false barriers that we have accepted and expand our world accordingly.

It reminds me of holding on to a tetherball and as it goes round and round, tighter and closer to the pole, and then away again, we are never any further away from that pole than the length of the rope attached to it and the ball we hold on to.

It may be time to let go and transform! And, what can often be a huge benefit is reaching out to someone who can help you improve your perspective and support your transformation. Call Jennifer House at 530-310-6123 and let's start the dialog. Who knows? It could be a life-changing decision!

Ignoring The Odds. Taking Charge!

"Nothing reduces the odds against you 
like ignoring them."

-- Robert Brault

It takes a brave person to focus on what they want, or where they are going, or what they are doing and ignore what anyone else thinks about that. What are odds anyway? Like who is making them? Shawn the Canadian? Tommy the Geek? America's Got Talent?

How many times was JK Rowling turned down before Harry Potter became a household name? How many times did Babe Ruth strike out? Or Hank Aaron? How many times did Edison try for the light bulb before he made it? The list goes on and on and on of people who ignored the odds and did it anyway. Foolish? Depends on your point of view, but it obviously wasn't the people who made it through.

No. You just have to want it enough. Just enough, to ignore the barriers, the odds, the Geek Squads--all of them. The odds are in your favor as you decide that they are. You are in charge. Only you.

Why Not You?

"Why not you?"

-- Steve Maraboli

Steve Maraboli continues:

"Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. Why not you?

Today, many will open their eyes to the beauty that surrounds them. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to leave the ghost of yesterday behind and seize the immeasurable power of today. Why not you?

Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present. Why not you?

Today, for many the burden of self-doubt and insecurity will be lifted by the security and confidence of empowerment. Why not you?

Today, many will rise above their believed limitations and make contact with their powerful innate strength. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to live in such a manner that they will be a positive role model for their children. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to free themselves from the personal imprisonment of their bad habits. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to live free of conditions and rules governing their own happiness. Why not you?

Today, many will find abundance in simplicity. Why not you?

Today, many will be confronted by difficult moral choices and they will choose to do what is right instead of what is beneficial. Why not you?

Today, many will decide to no longer sit back with a victim mentality, but to take charge of their lives and make positive changes. Why not you?

Today, many will take the action necessary to make a difference. Why not you?

Today, many will make the commitment to be a better mother, father, son, daughter, student, teacher, worker, boss, brother, sister, & so much more. Why not you?

Today is a new day! Many will seize this day. Many will live it to the fullest. Why not you?"

Reaching Out Is A Good Thing!

I need somebody.
Not just anybody.
You know I need someone.

-- John Lennon and Paul McCartney

The song's first verse continues, "when I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self-assured. Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors." I just love the last part of that verse: "now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors."

We all have a lot going on in my life and I also know that we can all use some help from time to time. Realizing and accepting that can be transforming.

Sometimes for a range of reasons, we may resist reaching out and stop looking for solutions to our perceived problems or our feeling of being stuck. Yet, by not reaching out, we are destined to stay in that place when asking for help could propel us to new and unknown heights and happiness.

Whether you want to grow your business, get on a more rewarding path personally, or just want some ideas to feel better about yourself, making a decision to reach out and ask for some help is a great thing to do.

Jennifer House Coaching can be of service when you are ready to reach out. Let us give you some clarity and a renewed perspective toward your goals and desires. Call 530-310-6123 and let's talk about it.
