Living a Deliberate Life (not at the affect of life)

Isn’t it time to be deliberate? There is no more time for sitting
back; now is a moment of action. Not just doing for the sake of doing but
opening to the divine and listening, which is an aspect of doing/action.
Observe your surroundings and notice what feels “right” and what feels off,
then act on that. Acting/doing in this instance might simply be noticing
what the “off” part is, and how it is being attracted to you… What is it, where
and how does it manifest in your life. Then focus on attracting the tools and
skills that allow you to release it. The fact that you are reading this now is
an indicator that you are likely ready to release something. Here are a few
methods and tools for release:

  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Check out Gary Craig’s information packed web site. This link directs you to the page where there is a free 85 page download to learn how to do this for yourself. It is a great start, but find yourself an EFT therapist. I have two, Mary Hall who is local and Brad Yates who has a great Sunday morning group gathering (well worth it). His products include Money Beyond Belief: and click on the link for his Tappings and his eBook. Mary Hall is my local therapist and an absolutely amazing healer, she also does tele-healing EFT sessions and can guide you through nutritional healing, you can reach her at mary@maryahall.com.
  • Ho’oponopono. Joe Vitale has an amazing new book that walks you through the basics of Ho’oponopono. This is seriously the real deal healing method. I do it daily… any downtime or moments of confusion are filled with Ho’oponopono.
  • Sedona Method. Hale Dwoskin invented this awesome model to help you to understand whether the feelings you are having are real or not. Is it real, is it true… most of the time when you finish this inner dialogue you have released whatever “it” was.
  • 3-D Workout Dianne Woodruff offers a remarkable "Therapeutic Fitness" system that helps to
         eliminate pain, markedly reduce chance of injury (AND dissolve troublesome fat pockets.) 3-D Workout was designed to restore the body’s basic organizational patterns while building strength and coordination. Whether you are recovering from injury or want to virtually eliminate chance of injury, this will do the trick! These are two videos that will change your life.

So there is a short
list of things you can do, review them let these choices sit with you, open
yourself to the energetic essences, and use your inspiration to make a choice.
That process is yet another exercise for you. Right now take a look at your “to
do” list. Now take deep breath relax into the moment, find your center. From
this place of calm take another look at the list, without thinking about it,
what is calling to you? Maybe there is something that is not on your list (like
something you really love to do), add it to the list. Then do that which is
calling you the most, do what is creating a yearning inside of you. Writing
this blog right now is that for me. This is working from inspired action and it
will guide you unerringly to your goals. This is how to start living more
deliberately.

The Still Point

In cranial sacral therapy the still point occurs when the
body goes in to a state of apparent “non-activity” – a place of stillness. In
this stillness, however, a subtle undercurrent of true healing activity is taking place and the opportunity for
a shift into balance is available. A “healing pulse” shows up in the still
point, and often the heat of a stored energy block is released. Emotional
energies from the tissue are liberated and the cells, muscles and surrounding
area settle into a new place of being. The body has natural healing processes
that cranial sacral (and other therapies) can address and stimulate, and during
a therapeutic session there is constant changing and shifting occurring as a
result. While a healing process is initiated true resolution of an issue or
issues occurs during a still point. The still point can happen several times
during a session or might happen just once, but if there is a still point
present a healing resolution has generally occurred.

Still points are not just reserved for cranial sacral
therapy sessions; you can also find them in nature and in your everyday life.
For example, you can find still points in a river whirlpool/vortex. As the
water curls around the rocks in areas of white water or eddies at the edge of
the river you will see this whirlpool effect. If you watch closely you will
also see the swirl move in the opposite direction as an anti vortex. The center
point between the two swirling vortexes is the point of inertia where the
movement appears to slow down.Vortexstillpoint

There is a balance between the vortexes found here and the
motion in opposite directions cancels out the other creating this lack of
motion. This is very similar to a still point in cranial sacral therapy. When
white water kayaking this “still point” is where you can “surf,” where you can
sit in the place of inertia where the two currents cancel each other out. When
watching for vortexes in nature see if you can find this mid-point in the
currents and witness the stillness. In that moment search for your own internal
rhythm; find and match the stillness in your own being.

The still point can also apply to human activities. Within our own lives we create vortexes (and
sometimes tornadoes). Within these whirlwinds of activities there are still
points available to us. There is a place of calm waiting for us in EVERY life
situation. Within those still points are found the opportunities for healing of
our life issues. It is in the still place that all possibilities are available.
In the stillness one can discover a new connection to the divine or the source.
This is where the wisdom shows up and reveals the nuances of change that can
lead to healing.

So look around you, where are the still points in your life?
What whirlwinds are you creating for yourself and are there still points that
you are overlooking? If you can’t see it, go to nature and witness the
stillness there, let it remind you and nudge you. When you find that still
point in your life’s activities, stay with it for a moment or two, the answers
and the path to healing are waiting there for you.
