The Pathway to Personal Development & Spiritual Growth

Simply put, by the genius mind of Albert Einstein, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting to get a different result.

Funnily enough in this crazy old world, we generally learn our greatest lessons through our mistakes or repeating them over and over. We end up beating our head against a brick wall wondering why we didn’t get the outcome we had hoped for. It is because of this cycle, feeling that we are living Ground Hog Day and going around in circles chasing our tail, that we start questioning whether or not there could be another way of doing things to achieve a different result and wondering whether there is more to existence than the treadmill of life and acceptance of the status quo.

It is often at breaking point or when we go through some type of crisis that we have an epiphany, a light bulb moment, that creates a space for us to look at how we can approach our problems or circumstances differently.

Suddenly we take a look at ourselves and become open to change and growth or looking at things from a different angle. After all the common denominator in our lives that is factoring into each equation, contributing the consequences and creating our experiences is US, right?

So whether you’re in a rut, a truth seeker, a change maker or just want to grow and evolve to be the best version of you here are some tools to help you along your journey.

Are you ready for an adventure of self-discovery?

  1. Self Awareness is the process of becoming aware of our habits, patterns, thoughts, feelings, words, actions, attitudes, limiting beliefs, doubts and fears to attain “witness consciousness”. When we start observing how all of this rules our lives, personalities, behaviours and actually creates our reality, we can call forth change by letting go of anything that no longer serves us to reach our full potential.
  1. The Definition of Insanity

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein

It all starts with taking responsibility for our:

  • Thoughts
  • Words
  • Actions

Consciously change your thoughts, words and actions and bring them into alignment. Consistency will help you create your new reality. A new way of thinking will create different outcomes and results.

  1. Establish a New Paradigm

With this new awareness define the new you. Get to know yourself.

  1. What are your hopes and dreams?
  2. Are you in poverty or prosperity consciousness? Lack or abundance?
  3. What is your passion?
  4. What is your purpose?
  5. Who would you be if you tapped into your full potential?

Question and review your life, all that you are and want to be. Start with a blank canvas and have fun creating your new reality.

  1. Meditation

Meditation is essentially the practice of mindfulness and will help you become aware of your thoughts, gain clarity, inner peace and stillness. Meditation has been proven to alter consciousness and in turn our cellular composition. By embracing meditation and undergoing guided visualisations you can start creating your new paradigm.

  1. The Universal Law of Cause and Effect

The universal law of cause and effect states that for every effect there is a definite cause, likewise for every cause there is a definite effect.

Your thoughts, words and actions create ripple effects and have profound consequences that manifest and create your life as you know it. If you are not happy with the reality you have created, then you must change the causes that created it in the first place. Change your words and actions, and you change your life… Transform your thoughts, and you will create a new reality.

  1. The Universal Law of Attraction

The law of attraction is the magnetic power of the Universe that draws similar energies together. This law manifests through the power of creation, everywhere and in many ways as we are all magnetically connected in the collective consciousness and energy grid.  This law also creates your reality by attracting thoughts, ideas, people, money, circumstances and even effects your surroundings.  Even the law of gravity is part of the law of attraction.

The law of attraction manifests through your consciousness by drawing to you like-minded people with similar values, socio economic bracket, desires, goals and also corresponding situations and lifestyles. It is the universal force that brings together people of similar interests and mindsets, who unite into various groups, investors, charities, health and fitness, sports clubs, yoga, etc.

Be mindful when using this law and surround yourself with mentors that you admire and aspire to be like. Model them. Consciously surround yourself with more happy, can do, proactive people demonstrating success and prosperity in their lives.

The secret to harnessing this force to your advantage is through creative visualization and affirmations. By holding a vision of what you want to achieve or by saying or writing positive affirmations, you create and bring into your life what you consistently visualize in your mind. You are completely in charge and use the power of your mind, thoughts, imagination and words to design your reality and manifest your dreams.

  1. Keep your Ego in Check

We are living in a time of great change and transformation, essentially the transition from head to heart. What isn’t love is only fear. Our egos have been built on all of the programming, doubts, limiting beliefs and fears we have experienced in our lives and they don’t really like change. So the ego is not necessarily going to go down without a fight. Leading an enlightened life is about Mastering the Ego, it is part of the human experience and will always require management. With commitment, vigilance, responsibility, honesty, courage and consistency you can live without fear running the show. When we can truly master our egos the attainment of enlightenment is possible.

Practice to experience the results for yourself and have fun along your pathway to enlightenment creating the life you dream of and deserve!
