Inspiration Board. Being Present. The Power of Now. Life unfolds only in moments. This the most important thing I ever learned. Nobody has ever  experienced anything that wasn’t part of a single moment unfolding. That means life’s only challenge is dealing with the single moment you are having right now. Don’t try to battle problems that aren’t  actually happening. Nobody can deal with the past or future, because, both only  exist as thoughts. BE in the present.

Life unfolds only in moments Of course! This the most important thing I ever learned. Nobody has ever experienced anything that wasn’t part of a single moment unfolding. That means life’s only challenge is dealing with the single moment you are having right now. Don’t try to battle problems that aren’t actually happening. Nobody can deal with the past or future, because, both only exist as thoughts. Be in the present.

Today’s Inspiration: Wayne Dyer

“Wayne Dyer has so many great ideas and quotes, here are some of my favorites. Recently I started reading the book ‘Real Magic’, it is the first book I read by Wayne Dyer but I love it so far!”
~Sophie 

 

“When you have a vision and you act as if that vision were already here, you create not only the necessary expertise, but you literally become your own miracle worker. If you believe that you could never head up such an undertaking because ‘you don’t have the necessary training, credentials, experience,’ or whatever, then that is what you will act upon. Begin to act as if you were that expert, even if you have to fool yourself in the beginning. If you have enough belief in yourself, and you are ready, the teacher will appear and you will plunge right in and create the credential that you need to get the job completed.”
— Wayne Dyer in the book ‘Real Magic’

 

“Be in a state of gratitude for everything that shows up in your life. Be thankful for the storms as well as the smooth sailing. What is the lesson or gift in what you are experiencing right now? Find your joy not in what’s missing in your life but in how you can serve.”

— Wayne Dyer

 

“Every fall that you take is a gift, and every relapse is a glorious opportunity — after all, without them you can’t manifest the energy to get to a higher place.”

– Dr. Wayne Dyer

Today’s Inspiration: Quotes About Being Yourself

“Being yourself sounds easy but many people are having a hard time actually doing it. I think that many people get so alienated from themselves that it can get very confusing. These quotes on being yourself are my all time favorites. I hope they inspire you!”
~Sophie

Being Yourself

 

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”

— Jim Morrison

 

Here are three great E.E. Cummings quotes about believing in yourself.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”

— E.E. Cummings

 

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

— Dr. Seuss

 

“For me, the most important thing in your life is to live your life with integrity, and not to give into peer pressure. To try to be something that you’re not. To live your life as an honest and compassionate person. To contribute in some way. So to conclude my conclusion: follow your passion, stay true to yourself. Never follow anyone else’s path, unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path, and by all means you should follow that. Don’t give advice, it will come back and bite you in the ass. Don’t take anyone’s advice. So my advice to you is to be true to yourself and everything will be fine.”

— Ellen DeGeneres in her 2009 Commencement Speech at Tulane

Today’s Inspiration: Louise Hay

“Louise Hay is so inspirational! If you haven’t read her book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ yet I very much recommend reading it. I found these quotes and I loved them so much I wanted to share them with you, I hope you enjoy them!”

 

Getting Started with Spirituality? Start with Louise Hay

At 82, she’s still “The Queen of the New Age”

If you’re getting started with spirituality and mind/body wellness, there’s no better person to start with than Louise Hay.

Aside from looking stunning at the age of 82, what’s great about Louise is that she “walks the talk.” She’s overcome an abusive childhood, cured her own Cancer, and also literally wrote the book on faith and healing with her all-time best selling, You Can Heal Your Life. The New York Times even declared her, “The Queen of the New Age.”

Louise Hay Book

“We may habitually think the same thought over and over so that it does not seem we are choosing the thought. But we did make the original choice. We can refuse to think certain thoughts. Look how often you have refused to think a positive thought about yourself. Well, you can also refuse to think a negative thought about yourself.”

“You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds…Claim and consciously use your power.”

— Louise Hay

 

“I think the real goal in life is to feel good. We want money because we want to feel better. We want good health because we want to feel better. We want a nice relationship because we think we will feel better. And if we could just make feeling better our goal, we would eliminate a lot of extra work. How can I really feel good in this moment? What thoughts can I think right now that will make me feel better? That’s the question we need to constantly be asking ourselves.”

— Louise Hay

The Power Book

‘The Power’ (‘The Secret’ Sequel): 24 Inspirational Quotes from Rhonda Byrne’s New Book

Rhonda Byrne follows up her international bestseller, The Secret, by taking the power of positive thinking beyond the Law of Attraction in her latest book, The Power. Whether you are looking for a little nudge to help you seize the moment, follow your passion, or lead a more joyful life, Rhonda encourages us to take control of our feelings and frequency so that we can become the architects of our lives.

Between The Secret and The Power, Rhonda focuses on the mental preparation needed to achieve our dream lives, but misses one critical component: hard work. Maybe her next book? If someone is trying to lose weight, imagining life at one’s ideal weight is an important part of the process. Without making the commitment to eating healthier and incorporating consistent exercise into life, success will remain elusive, even for the most well-prepared mind.

If you are looking to reset your feelings and energy level, The Power will help you do just that. Some of my favorite inspirational quotes from The Power are captured below.

1. “Life is supposed to be fun! When you’re having fun, you feel great and you receive great things! Having fun brings the life you want, and taking things too seriously brings a life you have to take seriously.”

2. “Let go of the things you don’t love about your childhood, and keep the things you love. Let go of the things you don’t love about your adolescent and adult years, and keep the good things. Just keep the things you love about your whole life.”

3. “When you’re feeling joyful, you are giving joy, and you’ll receive back joyful experiences, joyful situations, and joyful people, wherever you go. From the smallest experience of your favorite song playing on the radio to bigger experiences of receiving a pay raise — all of the circumstances you experiences are the law of attraction responding to your feeling of joy.”

4, “Life isn’t happening to you; life is responding to you.”

5. “Many people don’t know about the power of good feelings, and so their feelings are reactions or responses to what happens to them. They have put their feelings on automatic pilot, instead of deliberately taking charge of them.”

6. “Every single second is an opportunity to change your life, because in any moment you can change the way you feel.”

7. “The difference between someone who is struggling and someone who has a fabulous life comes down to one thing — love. Those who have a great life imagine what they love and want, and they feel the love of what’s they’re imagining more than other people.”

8. “Whatever you can imagine is waiting for you, fully created in the invisible, and the way to make it visible is to harness the force of love by imagining and feeling what you love.”

9. “Whatever is in your magnetic field is attracting to itself, and so the more love in your field, the more power you have to attract the things you love.”

10. “The more love you give in your day-to-day life, the greater the magnetic power of love you have in the field around you, and everything you want will fall at your feet.”

11.”So how do you fall in love with life? The same way you fal in love with another person — you adore everything about them! You fall in love with another person by seeing only love, hearing only love, speaking only love, and by feeling love with all your heart! And that is exactly how you use the ultimate power of love in love with life.”

12. “You are the driver of your mind, so take charge and keep it busy with your instructions by telling it where you want it to go. Your mind only takes off on its own if you are not talling it what to do.”

13. “When anything good happens to you in your day, give thanks. It doesn’t matter how small it is, say thank you. When you get the perfect parking space, hear your favorite song on the radio, approach a light that turns green, or find an empty seat on the bus or train, say thank you. These are all good things that you are receiving from life.”

14. “Your imagination is more real that then the world you see, because the world you see comes from what you imagine and believe! What you believe and feel to be true is what will be your life.”

15. …

Today’s Inspiration: Don Miguel Ruiz in The Four Agreements

“This is one of my favorite books, the concepts are very eye opening and inspiring. If you haven’t read the book ‘ The Four Agreements’ yet I highly recommend it! Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book’
~Sophie 

Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements & Quotes

“If you live in a past dream, you don’t enjoy what is happening right now because you will always wish it to be different than it is. There is no time to miss anyone or anything because you are alive. Not enjoying what is happening right now is living in the past and being only half alive. This leads to self pity, suffering and tears.”
~Don Miguel Ruiz

“You see, everything is about belief. Whatever we believe rules our existence, rules our life. The belief system we create is like a little box we put ourselves inside of; we cannot escape because we believe we cannot escape. That is our situation. Humans create their own boundaries, their own limitations. We say what is humanly possible, and what is not possible. Then just because we believe it, it becomes truth for us.
~Don Miguel Ruiz

“Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.”
~Don Miguel Ruiz

“Action is about living fully. Inaction is the way that we deny life. Inaction is sitting in front of the television every day for years because you are afraid to be alive and to take the risk of expressing what you are. Expressing what you are is taking action. You have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is action. Without action upon an idea, there will be no manifestation, no results and no reward.”
~ Don Miguel Ruiz

The 4 Agreements:The 4 Agreements Book

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally:Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best:
 Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.”

John Lennon on Fear and Love

Today’s Inspiration: John Lennon

John Lennon

“I just love this quote of John Lennon, there is not too much more to add!”
~Sophie

 

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

— John Lennon

Today’s Inspiration: highexistence.com

Talk Bubble“There is so much about self improvement available lately. Great? Or not so great? For me, it sometimes seems like all these things give us the message that we are not good enough in all kinds of ways. That’s why I found this article so interesting!”

The Dark Side of Self Improvement

“Once you accept the fact that you’re not perfect, then you develop some confidence.” -Rosalynn Carter

Dark Side of Self Confidence

The dark side of self-improvement is that it feeds on our insecurities. If only I were x, could do y, looked like z then I would be confident and accept who I truly am. These crippling selfjudgments we make fuel addictions, loneliness, eating problems and perfectionism. In turn we combat these symptoms with the newest Band-Aid solution, another self-help program. But that never gets us any closer to the root of the problem.

Today’s Inspiration: Jim Carrey

In this four-minute video, Jim Carrey talks about our intention, he says: “Our intention is everything. Nothing happens on this planet without it. Not one single thing has ever been accomplished without intention.” He goes on to talk about the role of spirituality and “intention” in his life.

“I absolutely love this quote of him after the question ‘Are you a Buddhist?’ “Jesus. I’m a Buddhist, I’m a Muslim, I’m a Christian. I’m whatever you want me to be,” says Carrey. “It all comes down to the same thing. … You are either in a loving place, or you are in an unloving place. If you are with me right now, you cannot be unhappy. It’s not possible, just try.”
~Sophie
