"I think the fact that no matter how good you get, you know you can always get better. There's always someone above you that you can aspire to be like. I want to have pushed myself as far as I possibly can by the time I finish my playing career. Also, my teammates inspire me. We all compete against each other in every practice and drive each other to be competitive in games."
The gut knows the truth by the way it feels way before the head figures it out. The body can pick up on good or bad vibrations beneath the many layers of logic... so if deep inside, your inner voice, that little something says something is wrong or right about a person or a situation, trust it, trust the feeling!
We like to say that we are not like animals because of our ability to reason. But the thing is we are animals with the great advantage of having both reason & instinct... with only 20% of the brain's gray matter dedicated to conscious thoughts, while 80% is dedicated to nonconscious thoughts 😲 We don't actually have to reject the subtle mind, we have the chance and ability to balance and honor both the conscious and unconscious.
Yet we tend to shut our guts 🤦🏻♀️ that limitless source of strength, joy and incredible insights because of the unknown, the fears, limitations and deceptions. Most of times, when we speak about intuition we only relate to the times when we choosed trusting the feeling over the common sense and ended up disappointed or hurt... but chances are those bad decisions were not made out of intuition but out of limiting habits and beliefs 👊🏻
The point is guts don't lie and we owe ourselves to master that subtle mind to know whether it's the gut, the fear or the vodka speaking 🤷🏻♀️yep! when you feel like jumping into a pool out of the window at midnight is the greatest idea of all time... that's not your guts speaking, that's just vodka 🙃
Today I have been thinking about the concept of failure. When something in our life does not appear to be going the way we anticipated it is easy to fall into thoughts of disempowerment.
Instead of allowing ourselves to move through the feelings of being stuck we often throw in the towel or find something to distract ourselves.
Where we make the greatest mistake is thinking that in that moment the entirety of who we are is one massive failure.
If we take a deeper look into our subconscious mind we will eventually source out the origin of this feeling.
It is the unhealed aspects of our inner self which keep us stuck in disempowerment.
The question I pose to you today is this; how can I become ok with the idea of failure and is failure really such a bad thing?
The answer may surprise you.
"All of us, every single one of us, has a shadow. We are all unconscious to something about our selves. It's just the nature of being alive. If there's light, light will always create shadow. And so we have to understand both sides of life. Eclipses are tremendously important periods of time that help us to integrate the parts of ourselves that we might normally not spend much time with. If I don't know that I'm not equipped to do something, for instance, then I won't know that I need to develop that skill. When we get shown the parts of ourselves that we might not be as familiar with, we also get the opportunity to say like hey, that's something I could develop. I'm not stuck in one position, I have agency to be able to develop certain aspects of myself." @ChaniNicholas
Experienced full body, spirit, and mental awe yesterday during the eclipse. My adventure partner @rootandcenter and I journeyed through the Carolinas, adjusting plans to take in cloudy weather conditions and improvising with traffic forecasts, and miraculously found the sweetest spot on a lake in South Carolina to view the eclipse in totality. We saw bright purple rays burst toward us from behind the moon, from the left just before totality and from the right just after. All around us the feeling of the planet shifted. I thought a few people might be about to lose their minds - there was an instability that felt palpable. The sudden dusk evoked a premonition of endings... for me, this eclipse made tangible the concept that we are all floating through a dark unconscious, blessed by a miracle of light that allows our existence. Within all the shadows that surround us, here we are, given the opportunity to LIVE within a system that is a prodigious phenomenon.
Sun is back today, and he's shining a little bit brighter after yesterday's embarrassing interruption. The moment of darkness in the middle of light brings something hidden out into the day. Whether or not you watched it happen, your chart was eclipsed, and today brings a brighter sunshine in exactly your perfect spot. 🌚☀️ #tarot#tarotreader#tarotreading#astrology#eclipse#sun#moon#unconscious
Onze geest is baas over alles. Vooral ons onbewustzijn is constant op de achtergrond alles ik goeie banen aan het leiden. Als je zelf controle neemt over je gedachten in je bewustzijn, vloeit dit op termijn door naar het onbewustzijn. Neem dus controle over jezelf en je gedachten. En geniet van het leven hoe jij het wil zien.
