6 Ways to Surrender & Create Space for Your Unlimited Potential

To receive is to give
To receive is to give

By Christina Martell.  I spell it wrong every time - I say the rhyme in my head, I before E except after C. I'm 39 years old. I should be able to spell receive, but the i and e continuously play tricks on me. Perhaps (like Wednesday) it's always been spelled wrong. The irony is that the word in general has so many misleading concepts. Receive means: to be given, presented with, or paid. It also means: to suffer, to experience, to be subject to, or to take.

Open your Mind, Change your Life
Open your Mind, Change your Life

By Dr. Tara Swart. In the past decade, I've transformed my life using the power of visualization. My own journey led me to turn my back on my traditional medical career as a psychiatrist, learning to tune into my deep inner wisdom and intuition, and risk everything to carve out a new career as an executive coach. I realized that the key to creating the life I dreamt of lay within my brain – what I call 'the source'. This is a realization that I have come to as a result of my Ph.D. research in neuroscience, but also as a result of my openness to more esoteric and alternative practices. I believe that visualization is at the heart of autonomous creativity, and I passionately believe that by training yourself to visualize in a focused way, anybody can manifest a more fulfilled, successful, and happy life.

Discovering your authentic voice
Discovering your authentic voice

By Kristin Moses. The business I love today is absolutely not the one I started out with. For too many years, I focused relentlessly on taking on as many projects as possible, whether they were inspiring or not. Our clients at the time just wanted beautiful designs, and that’s what we were giving them. I “spoke” only through design — which meant I wasn't bringing my full self to my business. And I didn’t even think that mattered. But working and living this way wasn’t sustainable. I knew in my heart I needed and wanted more from my business and my brand. So I made a big, scary shift.

The Story of One Human Doing
The Story of One Human Doing

By Linda Ford PhD. Once upon a time there was a brain, well cultivated and powerful. This particular brain had a transport system called a human body. But really, the brain thought it was the whole deal. So this human being was really more of a human doing. Much got accomplished in this way and the brain was satisfied. And yet…That’s pretty much how I lived my live for decades. Through a series of personal retreats, I began to see the potential to become more of a full Human Being instead of just a Human Doing. A consistent meditation practice helped bring me more present to that reality.

Curiosity sparks a wellness journey
Curiosity sparks a wellness journey

By Jackie Burrow.  Growing up, in the city of San Antonio, TX there were no conversations of health and wellness, but this curiosity became a force for me in my early childhood. Even though I grew up playing outside, swimming, climbing trees, and playing kickball with friends, there was something that was missing when the adults I witnessed didn’t model the continuation of activity and being outdoors. It took an active determination.

Mapping the Current
Mapping the Current

By Erica Midkiff.  The idea of flow is appealing, but putting it into practice can be tough. So imagine my surprise when I found inspiration in a very unlikely place…a parenting book called No-Drama Discipline. (Stay with me, even if you don’t have kids.) Imagine a drawing of a river. One of the banks is labeled rigidity and the other chaos, representing two extremes that aren’t ideal. But in the middle is a current that moves naturally down the river, approaching each bank but never getting stuck there.

Intention, Intuition, and Mirrors
Intention, Intuition, and Mirrors

By Candace Partridge. Many years ago, I became aware of some of the old beliefs I had been trusting in since childhood that were no longer working for me but I didn’t know I had the power or ability to replace them with ones that better suited me today. I wanted to do something different and believed I could try but didn’t know where to start. I began setting intentions. It seemed a safe and easy first step and it changed my life. Every few weeks I would work on a new intention. Slowly I began to recognize a faint inner voice I never knew existed. This whisper of intuition, set me on a course to change deep, destructive patterns that entered my life as a child and were now crushing me and my family.

Same Wavelength: Mindfulness + Meditation
Same Wavelength: Mindfulness + Meditation

By Paige Davis. I’ve explored meditation and mindfulness practices my entire life, but never with consistency. My real entrée to a formal meditation practice came when I was a stressed out entrepreneur on the verge of burnout. I knew nothing in my outer circumstances were going to change and I was desperate for some peace. That is when I attended my first meditation training with Deepak Chopra and the Chopra Center. It was a game changer.
