Our ego keeps us stuck & kills countless expansive experiences in life…

Expansive ideas and opportunities are placed in front of you.
Something that rouses an inner spark to do it.
You feel a Pull from within yourself.
What happens next within you?
Which person do you see yourself as?
Do you summon the Faith Of Life to Jump into an expansive self?
or
Do you begin to question and analyze it?
Find reasons not to?
Slowly pick the life right out of it?

Expansive ideas and opportunities are placed in front of you

Something that rouses an inner spark that has been quiet for too long

You feel a Pull from within yourself

What happens next within you?

Which person do you see yourself as?

There is this great little book that helps you start the flow of abundance in life, The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price. It is a pocketbook full of punch. There are 10 days of mind-expanding concepts and life expanding daily affirmations that you do 4 times over to grow into and embrace the change.

Day 8: “My consciousness of the Spirit within me as my unlimited Source is the Divine Power to restore the years the locusts have eaten {continued}”

Your ego sometimes acts like a swarm of locusts that creates, imagines and makes up whatever fears are needed to prevent you from considering any kind of change. This analyzing and fear feed off the new energy that comes with this new idea until it is devoid of life-giving energy.

The untamed ego’s job is to stop you from making a change or from taking any step forward. It likes life exactly as it is. This includes the highs, lows and in between; the pains, problems, limited pleasures, long-forgotten dreams and more. Until you tame the ego its job is to shut down change. The older you get the more this likely applies.

Slowly letting thoughts turn into concrete in the mind while wondering why the gusto of life is gone.

The ego knows how to respond and manage status quo in each area of life whether effective or not. People tend to like thinking they know what they are doing in all situations because the unknown is one of the greatest fears for most people. People will do anything to avoid feeling as if they do not immediately have the answer. The ego’s life-breath is the familiarity of what is; what a person has, his pains and her limits are just the way life is; never to be challenged.

The logical mind is like a massive life library of all experiences, lessons, changes, events in life, learned behaviors, etc. You learned the software to run your mind, heart, body and life from the significant adults in your youth. It only knows how to do something it has already done or do it from reading or YouTubing how someone else does it. It does not have new thoughts. It receives, learns and stores other people’s thoughts and ways to live life.

The logical mind has never heard a new thought that it does not at first seek to reject
Until it is tamed.

The creative mind is like a full-on connection to the vast and infinite creativity that makes life, sustains life and constantly expands this universe. Your consciousness is designed to expand as far as your inner vision and drive offer for you to stretch in this lifetime. These are the new thoughts that are caught by your brain like a radio tuner receives the matching station. This is accessible and can be accessed on cue with practice of some guided internal focus methods.

We are all designed to access the creative/intuitive/expansive mind equally as we all currently access the logical, repeating functions, physically oriented mind. The ego is the awareness the emanates from this logical mind.

But what about that inner pull to go for an expansive experience?

This is likely your intuitive guidance for you to take a single step or to jump right in. We are designed with multiple streams of thoughts available. These include logical, intuitive, heart, soul and more; each with its own perspective on the situation. This inner pull derives from your inner knowing, the heart’s attraction to that stream of energy of life force that will be flowing through the veins, so to speak. The thrill of feeling exhilarating energy; it may have been a while.

Logical Mind repeats life. Intuitive Mind exhilarates life.

You are at a life choice point

Will you stay with the familiar or maybe it is time to step outside the lines of life, as they are.

[Note: Read future posts – You can consider the benefits of the ego and logical mind. There is always benefit. We are designed this way for a reason.]

Motivation: Read this poem The Comfort Zone

When was the last time you walked outside the lines of life to summon those great-feeling life-giving forces that stimulate new ideas and fresh opportunities.

Sometimes it is prudent to hold back and stay where you are.

You learn about yourself from practice…as long as you push to take a chance once in a while to be more expansive and experience more dimensions within yourself. However, as I have been fortunate enough to have had a couple of teachers I consider Masters, Native American Chiefs, Shamans, powerful catalysts for strong change I’ve achieved in my life. And I have made bad choices; each one stings. Through that contrast in life you get better; sharpen the focus of what brings you joy instead of talking about the pains; passion instead of being low; forward movement instead of fear; expansion over limited status quo.

Feeling more expansive within yourself is such a magnificently rewarding sensation.

Achievement trumps failure though a failures always contain gems as learning lessons about life and yourself. Oprah’s Master Class on OWN channel has successful people talk about the journey from who they used to be to who they are now. Each one says they learned the greatest lessons from their mistakes. Abraham, a current day guide and teacher, says the contrast in life is what helps us to sharpen our rocket of desire for what we do want. I add: And it brings the energy for motivation and inspiration.

Usually that initial excitement is the one to follow. It was detected before our status quo defense system gets engaged.

Remind yourself:

“Keep doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results is to be insane.”

Nearly every person who has “made it”, as we judge it, has stood right in that doorway to a higher sense of self-expression. What to do? You are facing your fears and choosing to engage other more connected thoughts from the heart. Take that first frightening step. Then you have pushed through the invisible wall that limits life.

What is it that calls from within you for an expansive experience?

Take the first step into that scary idea.

One of my first steps into the unknown

With my electrical engineering degree I was fortunate enough to graduate in a great economy and had twenty+ job offers. I embraced what I understand to be a major trait of us Sagittarius folks. I went for the adventure that had been squashed inside of me my entire life in a family that didn’t travel more than a few hundred miles by car. This deep impulse moved me to accept the offer to work for a French company anywhere in the world except North America. My soul purred; perfect. I lived in the Far East. Loved it, loved it, loved almost every single aspect of it. From a hometown of 150 people to traveling, working in and living in other countries.

My adventurous nature can be strong. It broadened my horizons in the most expansive way beyond anything I ever could have imagined having grown up in a small Texas farm town; went to school in the big town of 1500.

There is such expansiveness, great, fabulous, life-giving, heart embracing, character building, storytelling fodder and so much more to do something that is so far beyond your fears and limits. The further outside of your life’s current box the most benefit.

I had my fears and now I have the strength from having pushed through many of them plus the countless rewards of real moments with people from many cultures.

May we all attract to us the opportunities for self expansion to live as who we are designed to be. And then push through. Then live in a much expanded life box… until it is time to do it again.

Welcome and thank you for checking out this blog, my corner of the electronic universe where I am looking for and sharing ways to live an authentic and empowered life.

I am from a small Texas farm town. I am the first person in my family to get my bachelors degree, electrical engineering from Texas A&M University. Because of circumstances I developed an intense desire to find ways to do life differently, meaning better, more meaningfully, fulfilling and of service.

As a result I have learned, apprenticed, licensed and studied for 29+ years in four major and several minor training organizations learning life skills to improve my life and to train/coach/teach others into improving their lives.

I have several BIOs posted at my websites. Here's one way to categorize the services I offer:

- Life Catalyst Coach
- Stress Management Specialist
- Mental Focusing Agent
- Licensed Spiritual Coach/Counselor
- Emotional Management
- Inner Answers Guide

I coach, teach, speak, train, write... whatever means I can to assist others in living a more magnificent and fulfilling life.
