The Hidden Level of Clarity


Today, we’ll discuss the concept of clarity in a different light.

In essence, there are two kinds of clarity. One of the mind and one of the Heart.
The key is to understand the difference between the two and know which one
serves you the most.

The two kinds of clarity are:

1) Clarity from the mind

When your mind isn’t clear, you feel anxious or unsettled.  Some people
even feel a little foggy or frustrated.

But when you take time to tune-in, breathe and begin to relax, the mind begins to
settle down. Most people then begin to feel like they can breathe easier and their
stress levels drop.

Some even meditate – knowing that there’s still more clarity they can feel.

At this point, most people are pretty satisfied. But many people discover that
clarity of the mind is short lived – it tends to run out faster than we’d like.

But there is another kind of clarity…

One that unifies the mind with the body in ways beyond the mind’s ability to
understand.

2) Clarity from the Heart

The second kind of clarity comes from the Heart. Not the physical organ, but the
spiritual/energetic Heart.  In other words, your connection to God and the Infinite.

This connection is far deeper than the mind can imagine and gives you a much
deeper sense of connection and inner peace.

The key difference between clarity from the mind and clarity from the Heart is
when the mind steps in, the possibility for doubt, fear and confusion increases.

But the Heart speaks a completely different language.  While the mind runs on
patterns and memory, the Heart has no limits and has access to the wisdom of
the Infinite.

It knows only peace and Love.

Let’s say you meditate for 20-30 minutes in the morning.  If you feel stressed as
little as an hour or two later, then any clarity you may have experienced came
from the mind.

But Heart based clarity gives you inner peace that lasts well beyond any meditation
session because it connects you with the energy of Creation itself.

This feeling is almost indescribable because it’s beyond language – and yet we can
feel it palpably because it’s real
.  In fact it’s our true reality and not the illusion
that the mind often projects as “being reality”.

And that kind of clarity increases your energy,awareness and effectiveness in all parts
of your life.

When you really understand the difference between the two, you’re on a completely
different wavelength and life becomes a joyous adventure to learn from.

Whether it be highs, lows or anywhere in between, when your clarity comes from
your Heart, life becomes a child-like playground of wonder, awe and fun…

Here’s the cool thing about Heart based clarity.

You still get the gifts of the mind, but you get the best of both worlds and it’s
simpler to navigate the complexities of life because your Heart and mind
are in alignment.

Now that’s a life worth living…

Clarity Module.

Until then,

May your Heart guide you,

The Clarity Paradox


Whenever we begin something new – whether it be a new day, a
new thought, or a new project, it helps to begin with clarity of thought
and intent.

This kind of clarity inspires you, enlivens you and rejuvenates your energy.

What is Clarity?

Clarity essentially is the state of being clear.
The opposite state would be haziness or confusion.

Real clarity gives you focus, direction and a feeling of centeredness.

With all the distractions we face every day (internet, TV, cell phones, noise,
EMF, etc) on top of all our daily responsibilities, it’s a wonder we ever find time
to feel any real clarity.

So how do you get clarity?

The paradox of having clarity is that it takes some kind of clarity to get you there.
But the mind is often so filled with stray thoughts, it’s hard to even begin with a clear
focus or direction.

If you want 2013 to be different (not just a “little change”, but to have *real
breakthroughs* in your career, your relationships, your finances
and most importantly how you feel) – then you need a catalyst to get you there.

By catalyst, I mean a new source of wisdom that gives you such incredible
clarity, you’ll be amazed at the new thoughts, insights and results you’ll have
when you’re there.

Imagine what that would feel like…

In the next couple days, I’ll be sharing a few more insights about the power of
clarity as well as news about the upcoming Clear-Mind Clarity Module.

Until then,

May 2013 be your best year ever,

The Secrets of The Bamboo Tree

If you’ve ever noticed someone who’s become truly successful (in any
endeavor) it’s easy to think that some of them are what you might call
“overnight successes”.

But the truth is that for any of these success stories are years of sculpting and
practice that it took before their success was ever known.  By the time people
on the outside world ‘see” these successes, countless hours of practice, insights
and focus have been invested.

Gifts Beyond Measure

Like the bamboo tree that grows for years under the surface of the soil, hidden
beneath the surface of your normal awareness are gifts beyond your mind’s
normal ability to see.

Something beyond your imagination…

Beyond our normal human understanding.

The Illusion That “Nothing’s Growing”

Humans are a very fickle race. We grow impatient when what we want doesn’t
“show up” when and how we want it.  Then sprinkle in some extra “attraction tricks”
that have been tossed around lately by pundits and you get a recipe for some
very interesting results (and interpretations).

But to the patient Souls – the ones who “see beyond the obvious”, the reality is that
growth of unimagined proportions has already begun.  In your Heart, you know
that your intent is already real before you can ever “see it”.

When you’re centered and open to Divine guidance, old dis-serving patterns that
once prevented you from seeing and feeling your creations already real fade away
and new inspiring and energizing ones spring forth.

When you see the image of the bamboo forest above, could you ever have imagined
this kind of growth in such a short period of time?

What if the seeds of your growth have *already* been in place for years?

And what if gifts of incredible scope and depth for you and for our world are just waiting
for your gentle nurturing and guidance?

How do you nurture these gifts?

Meditation
Gentle observance
Non judgment
Qi-Gong, Yoga, Deep Breathing, Nature walks, “Vitamin N”

A return to innocence, play and living life itself, rather than living from old
dis-serving memories and old roles.

Now it’s your choice – to carry forth either the old patterns that hold you back, or
to create an inspired and enlivened vision path filled with love, peace and serenity.

The past is just a memory and it has no bearing on your True Self.

“Choice Point” happens in the moment.

Past  ————————-  Present ————————- Future


It’s really all the same.

The real key is the present

Because it unlocks the door of all Creation.

What gifts are you willing to give life to?

What secrets lie waiting to spring forth like the bamboo tree?

It’s time my friend to nurture your Dreams and Heart’s Desires.

You can do it as you listen to your Heart – because it will
never fail you.

Feel free to post your comments below – and lets’ grow this “new
bamboo forest” together…

The Golden Thread


If you heard our audio of the 11:11 Turning Point, you’re probably
familiar with the concept of the “Golden Thread”.

In essence, the Golden Thread is the one core energy or belief that
connects all the main issues in your life.

Listen to Track 2 of the 11:11 Turning Point Audio at this link
and you’ll get the vibe of what I’m talking about

Here’s the Key…

What you’re seeking isn’t “out there” somewhere…

It’s hidden in the very core of your day to day problems.

But few of us we were ever taught to look at life that way.

The old paradigm was whenever you felt stressed or bothered by a problem
you were taught to “eliminate” the problem.

The only problem with that paradigm is if you only seek to eliminate problems
– you miss the underlying message that problems (part of the waves of life)
are here to teach us.

“Modern” systems like medicine think that same way.

Example:
Let’s say a person is diagnosed with cancer.  Instead of seeking the
*underlying* cause of the cancer (and the  deeper message it’s trying
to communicate through the state of dis-ease) the “modern” approach
is to try to “kill” the cancer (and in many cases the patient as well).

This model is called the reductionist model – meaning the doctors and
scientists who view the person with disease see the person as a series
of “parts” that can simply be drugged, cut out and removed (like a
new hose or sensor in your car engine.)

But the human mind/body is far more complex than that plebian point of view.

A car engine doesn’t have a Spirit like you do.

It doesn’t have emotion.

It can’t sense its own existence.

And it can’t feel like you do – with all the highs and lows that give life it’s
incredible qualities.

When you seek that hidden meaning behind all events as DaVinci once taught,
you begin to discover the “Golden Thread”.

In other words, the common thread that holds all your life issues together.

If you have a major challenge – especially one that recurs over and over again
– the old paradigm would simply seek to eliminate the problem.

But in doing so – more often than not, you’ll miss the valuable message
that the problem came into your life to teach you.

Q. So are you saying that problems are good?

A. Yes – and the key is when we let go of the mind and open our Hearts,
something unexpected begins to happen.

Judgment ceases – and new possibilities are free to present themselves.

You begin to discover that hidden within the very problems you’re
trying to avoid is the energy and the love you so dearly seek.

And this process of seeking the “Golden Thread”, of finding the gift in our
problems and challenges (especially the BIG ones) can be the most practical
AND rewarding experience of our lives.

What if this could work for you?

What if you decided to look for the good in a problem today?

I invite you to challenge yourself to find the “Golden Thread” in one
of your life issues – and begin now.

Don’t let your mind tell you things like: “It can’t be done”, or “I can’t
find the good in my problems”.  That’s giving in to the ego mind.

And that ‘s the old paradigm of thinking that your mind is you.

Make today the day you begin to look deeper into the Golden Thread
of your Heart.

And So It Is…

Blessings of Aloha,

Paul
