By Prasanna Gunturi –
Knowing that life is a journey and we encounter obstacles, challenges and limitations on the way, we don’t expect a perfectly smooth ride. It seems that some of us are lucky and fortunate but for many, the ride is getting bumpier and bumpier. The cup of woes is overflowing…
The question that naturally arises is: how can one stay positive? Most importantly, how does one transcend the negative energy flowing around us, ready to suck us in?
Is it possible?
Yes, it is. If only you are willing to step into your greatness NOW. Yes, this very moment. All it takes is a decision, a commitment that you will no longer play small, that you will no longer feel hopeless and powerless. All you have to do is “just believe” that you have the power within you to change your life and of those around you. As you empower yourself and step into your greatness, you will empower others to rise and shine and step into their greatness!
We are not a machine. Nor a robot. Nor a supercomputer. We are a masterpiece. Compact, intelligent, self-governing. Perfectly designed and executed. A wonderful creation! We have in our possession, a priceless, powerful and anabolic powerhouse comprising of our body, mind and spirit. Caught in the world wide web of life, we have forgotten who we are and what we are capable of. It’s time to reclaim our true power.
STEP INTO YOUR GREATNESS NOW… in THREE simple steps!
Step #1: Respect your body and take care of it
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” ~Buddha
Our body is truly amazing! Trillions of cells. Organs. Organ systems. All working in perfect order and unison, coordination, collaboration and balance. Executing a zillion complex and extraordinary functions each day! And it all began with just two teeny-weeny cells?
Did you know that our body recreates itself every 5 years, that there is no single old cell in the body at that time? Yet, we hardly see/feel anything out of place? Isn’t it remarkable considering all that goes into a product release and upgrade – version control, quality control, design control, program and project management, enhancements, maintenance, delivery, production etc? To think all these take place so seamlessly and effortlessly?
There are people who take better care of their cars than they take care of their bodies. Love your body and appreciate all that it does for you to keep you in good health and shape.
Step #2: Get out of the box and tap into your intuition
Functionally, the mind can be divided into emotional mind, rational mind and intuitive mind. The rational mind allows us to think, reason, use logic, analyze. It helps us concretize an idea or an insight by applying rationale and logic to it, breaking it down into smaller and smaller units. The emotional mind helps us experience the emotion behind a thought.
“Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.” ~ Robert Graves
If the rational mind is the analyzer, the intuitive mind is the synthesizer. It creates the big picture out of all the small details. It is that sudden flash of insight that makes everything crystal clear – you know it, you believe it and you can feel it with your heart. Logic and rationale come later.
Scientists say that we use less than 10% of our mind power. The mind loves to create patterns and rules from our past experiences and stores them in the subconscious. We create this imaginary box and our thinking is limited to what we have chosen to store in this box.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” ~Albert Einstein
If Bill Gates stuck to logic and rationale, he would never have dropped out of the prestigious (and highly coveted) Harvard university and there would have been no Microsoft! And if a sixteen-year old Albert Einstein had not wondered what it would be like to travel along a ray of light, we wouldn’t have a great scientist and his groundbreaking theories!
Get out of the box and tap into your intuition! Because the intuitive mind is the gateway to the spirit, it is anabolic and inspires anabolic thoughts, emotions, actions and results.
Step #3: Connect to your spirit and partner with the universe
“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” ~ Steven Covey
Our spirit is our real essence. It is the same spirit that pervades this universe, the Infinite Spirit (some call it Universe, God, Higher Power), the source of all creation. It is the Infinite Source of Wisdom, Intelligence, Will, Creativity, Love and Abundance, an unlimited reservoir of anabolic energy.
We are all spiritual beings. Spirituality is not limited to only a privileged few. Neither does being spiritual mean renouncing the world, body or mind. It is staying connected to our core, expressing our true potential and living a life of fun, fulfillment, purpose, peace, love, joy, success and abundance.
“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” ~ Paulo Coelho
The Infinite Spirit has a solution to every problem, has an answer to every question, has an opportunity for every challenge, has the power to turn every stumbling block into a stepping stone – for every aspect of your life, be it business, career, relationships, or life in general.
The laws of the universe (and nature) are simple (we have unnecessarily complicated and diluted them over ages), straightforward, fair, unbiased and anabolic. They apply equally to every person on this planet, irrespective of country, color, class, caste, creed, culture, religion, race, gender, age, role, education, qualification, business/organization or profession.
When you connect with your spirit, you are essentially partnering with the universe. The stars and planets align just for you. The words impossible and fear cease to exist… and you can accomplish what you want effortlessly!
