    In Harmony With the Universe

    (Unedited Version)

    Imagine for a moment that all things come to life when you operate at the same frequency as the Universe. It is said that when we operate at this frequency, in harmony with the Universe, the stars align making all things possible. The question then becomes; how does one find the frequency in a world that is inundated with noise and moving at such a rapid speed?

    Everybody is born and is already on the same frequency as the Universe. Living in the moment, enjoying the many wonders the world has to offer. Children rarely judge, criticize or feel the need to be more powerful then the next child. Yes, children poke fun, and do things just for fun with no concept of consequences; they just live in the moment- come what may. Children have no fear, they do things at the spur of the moment, and 99% of the times succeed at what they set their minds to do, the rest of the time when they do fail, they pick themselves up and try again until they succeed. The most classic example is the ability for a child to walk. Babies are determined at just a few months old to get from point A to point B, even if it means a few spills, but eventually they succeed. We are all living proof of this example.

    At the age of 11 or at puberty, children begin the hormonal and physical change. Children or now teenagers begin having sexual thoughts, feelings and begin to change their behavior, challenging authoritative figures, such as parents and teachers. These years become the most taxing of all years for everybody involved, but this stage is all part of growing up, as they search for their true identity.

    Unfortunately this is also the stage most begin to move away from the frequency at which all things become possible. This is the developmental phase, which introduces a mixed bag of emotions for a child, not to mention any learned behaviors and emotions they’ve already inherited from their immediate influencers.

    During this stage, a child is learning how to deal with humiliation, blame, despair, regret, and so on. As a child begins learning these new emotions, they begin to move away from the frequency, the harmony of the Universe. As a child matures and enters adulthood, if the emotions were not adequately addressed, new emotions begin to develop to deal with the unaddressed emotions, a coping mechanism if you will.

    Over a period of time, now an adult, he or she will begin to experience episodes of depression, caused by guilt, sorrow, regret, hate, blame and so on, and soon thereafter he or she may also begin to experience anxiety, fear or even phobias.

    At this point, any person experiencing any of the symptoms described in this article, among other, will be far from any frequency at which all things are possible - they forget that anything is possible and consider life as they know it the norm.

    Imagine a straight horizontal line, from left to right. Now imagine another line that is diagonal, starting at the bottom left corner to the top right corner. As a child experiences and hangs onto an emotion, each emotion can be written on the diagonal line. See how you begin to move away from the frequency of the Universe.

    Map out how far you are from the frequency - the harmony of the Universe.

    So how does one get back down to the horizontal line, the frequency at which all things become possible? First and foremost you must become aware of your behaviors and the power they have over your everyday life, but the most important of all things is to learn self-love. Without self-love, returning to the frequency at which all things are possible becomes difficult.

    Self-Love and Self-Awareness are the two key ingredients for eternal happiness. Master your self-awareness and you too will be in harmony with the Universe making all things possible for you again.

    Flowing through you
    A serene state of mind
    At peace with the universe
    Filled with love, JOY and happiness
    Emitting an energy felt from across the world
    Infecting everyone around you
    In complete harmony with the universe

    Why is it so difficult to be self-aware and practice self-love? Often times we become our worse critics. We also tend to keep blocking ourselves from introspection thus preventing ourselves from improvement. Is there a reason for this type of behavior?

    Thanks for visiting my blog...Always love a new face.

    I have slowly been working on making of what I want for myself to surface.

    Liara Covert said...

    To be, act, do or not do, these questions have preoccupied human beings for eternity. Each person is responsible for figuring out certain things alone.

    Bruno LoGreco said...

    Hallie - you crack me up - Yes I am full of it.. each and everyday. :)

    Chris - we are controlled by our egos and unless we become aware of it, it controls our lives, making self-love very difficult.

    Welcome pleasing procrastinator - slow and steady wins the race - keep at it :) Looking forward to reading more.

    Thus our journey - Thanks Liara!

    Hi Tystree - I could appreciate the difference in use of the word Harmony in different cultures. Perhaps one day China will be freed from communism and the people will learn the true meaning of Harmony. :)

    Ten Powerful Self-Coaching Tips

    By Bruno LoGreco

    Are you living the life of creativity and happiness that you've always dreamed of, or are you allowing your fears or other outside factors to influence you?

    Following the path that your heart's desires requires courage and might require a shift in attitude. There are several methods you can use to act as your own life coach and start working toward the life you dream of.

    Ideas for self-improvement

    You don't need to change every aspect of your life at once in order to improve your attitude and outlook on life. Self-improvement can feel daunting if you try to change everything at once.

    A good way to embark on your journey of self-coaching is to make one change and see what kind of impact it has upon your life. The following tips are designed to help you improve your life and become your own life coach. Try out one of the following tips at a time to positively impact your attitude and daily life.

    1. Find some ‘you' time. Everyone needs time alone to meditate and recharge. You may think you don't have extra time in your day. Start with 10-20 minutes to use for meditation or silent reflection.

    2. Ask yourself what you truly want in life. Are you living your life according to your true dreams and desires? You may be unaware of your desires that lie hidden beneath your surface needs and wants, so take the time to find out.

    3. Write everything down. Even if your thought seems silly, write it down! You may be surprised by the inspiration and ideas you can come up with.

    4. Journal daily, but with a twist. Instead of just writing about today, try writing about yesterday.

    5. Keep track of the "happy moments." Each day has potential for many small moments that bring joy and happiness. If you don't make a special note of them, you may not even recognize the small joys in your day.

    6. Choose one task each night to complete the next day. This way, you have focus, and you accomplish at least one task. Tasking and taxing yourself with effort is important in reaching goals.

    7. Smile when you wake up. Smiling is contagious. By smiling you improve your mood and can potentially improve someone else's day as well.

    8. Give thanks each night. Gratitude will improve your outlook on life and help you see all the good and wonderful moments of your day.

    9. Try something new. A new experience fuels creativity and your enjoyment of the day.

    10. Create at least one memorable moment each day. Make each day unforgettable, even if in a small way!

    Taking the next step with a life coach

    Self-coaching tips are great ideas for helping you improve your life. However, you can take your life to the next level with a life coach and mentor. A professional life coach can help you set goals and help you move forward with your dreams. If you're looking for the right path toward happiness, a life coach can help you discover the path your heart truly desires.

    The Success Indicators on Your Life Path

    Many people seek out a particular goal in their life path and are content when they achieve it. The chance to broaden their horizons or learn new things within an existent structure is not as appealing to them as it is to some others. This is an issue that arises in many individuals because they mistakenly think they have achieved what they wanted to in their lives. The plethora of environmental noise around them begins to infringe upon their goals and forces them to lose sight of what they truly wanted.

    A good way to think of this problem is to envision a large square box. This is not just any box though. Rather, in this case, your box has been divided into three separate, but equally shaped rectangular boxes, all stacked on top of one another. Each of these rectangular boxes is a highly important expression of your life goals -- individual levels of success. Within each of these levels of success is an indicator that tells you how close you are to becoming successful in this area of your life.

    Every area of your life that you identify as a potential path for success can be further divided, containing the many different events and obstacles you will encounter as you strive to reach your goals. Think of each sector of your life as being divided even further, with three new sections within one of the three stacked boxes (sectors). Within each stacked box are three separate sections, divided by dotted lines that make up the life path you will follow. These dotted lines are not the same as the solid lines dividing the sectors -- they are a path that you have envisioned since childhood -- a series of goals and pathways to success that you want to follow.

    As young people, these life paths may not be fully formed. Or they might be crystal clear in our minds--long, straight life paths from the early days of college and adult living to the ultimate goal of success that you have always strived for. You can see exactly what you need to do to reach each success indicator and achieve what you have set out to accomplish. And you probably did just this. After all, your goals as a youth were to be successful in the same way that you saw thousands of others live their lives. You wanted to reach your success indicators and experience the measure of success by which you would measure you life for decades to come.

    However, nothing is ever as simple as we envision it during youth. There are countless factors that interfere with your ability to clearly see those success indicators and life paths to success. These factors, or "Environmental Noise," can be detrimental to even the most focused of individuals. Think of what would happen if you dumped the contents of downtown New York into your box and tried to maintain your focus on those goals. Would you even be able to see your life path anymore?

    Everyone must travel their life path with environmental noise inundating them from all sides. It begins to become cloudy. The dotted lines, our life paths, begin to look like the straight lines and the success indicators start to be confused with any number of different distractions.

    And then something will happen and you will realize that you are in fact nowhere near the original success indicators you set for yourself. Everything has changed and yet you are stuck in a way. You are deep within the center of the middle rectangular box and you have no idea which way to go or how to get back on track. The noise only grows louder and you grow dizzy trying to regain your focus.

    It is in this instant that you must clear the noise and return to the basic, almost instinctive mode of thought you experienced as a child. What did you want from life? Where did you want to go? What do you need to get to that point? What was my life path? All of these questions must be asked without the distractions of the world around you muddying up your thought process. When you can revert to a very simple perspective of the world and only spend time thinking of what you want from life, you can be that much more successful.

    You can succeed in life despite the environmental noise, cruising down your life paths and moving through your rectangles with ease, but oftentimes you need a helping hand to clear away the noise and look at life with fresh eyes. There is nothing wrong with asking for help to weed out these distractions and remove the clutter from your life sectors with a professional life coach.

    Top 10 Benefits to Journaling

    By Bruno Logreco

    There are countless reasons to maintaining a journal. The top ten benefits of journaling may differ from person to person. However, there seems to be general themes that are attractive in the collective unconscious. Many people are looking to daily entries of their personal experiences to reap some of the following rewards.

    Maintaining a journal is a natural way to exercise the brain. People who make regular entries are taking time to develop writing and communication skills that are very valuable in everyday interactions. This mental exercise also helps to allow your thoughts to flow freely.

    Creativity is a second benefit to consider. This is an important aspect of journaling. The right hemisphere of the brain is associated with visual, imaginative and intuitive facets of thought. When you take time to write, you free the right hemisphere. The ideal entry will be one that puts the inner editor on hold. Thoughts and ideas should flow freely and naturally.

    The uninhibited nature of this form of writing serves a third benefit of developing self awareness. People often create different faces to meet various circumstances. We tend to recreate in distinct situations including the work environment, the community and even when at home.

    The process of keeping a journal helps you recognize the various aspects of your unique personality. The growing self awareness is a powerful force that can lead to even greater benefits in the future. Gaining insight into the self is among the most important aspects to maintaining a journal.

    The fourth benefit is the ability to set priorities. Once you get a grasp on the thoughts and emotions that are filtered through your personal experience, you begin to gain control of them. The process eventually leads to a greater understanding of what is and what is not important.

    The ability to re-see the past is another great benefit of keeping a journal. The pages can be revisited with a fresh perspective. It can be very surprising how much your understanding of an event changes over a relatively short period of time. Some writers find great moments of epiphany when rethinking and rereading entries.

    Journaling is a fantastic problem-solving resource. The approach of using entries to come up with various solutions to troubles is a little different than approaches for self awareness and growth. Many people choose temporary brainstorming techniques that serve to give viable solutions to problems.

    The seventh benefit of journaling is variety. You can choose what kind of entries you want to make. Common choices include brainstorming sessions, automatic writing and reflective notes. Personal journal entries can be made upon inspiration, when you first wake or right before you fall asleep. Some choose to do a combination of these.

    Purging is the eighth benefit to this practice. Many people find it helpful to place negative thoughts and feelings down on paper. Once the negative energy is placed on the page, they are free to let it go. This practice also works well when dealing with anger towards another individual. Purge the negativity and work towards a constructive approach.

    The ability to communicate with others is another benefit of keeping a journal. Those who work with life coaches can find a wealth of resources for sessions. Journaling can help you tap into your fears and dreams, helping your coach gain insight through entries that you choose to share.

    The tenth benefit is improvement in your overall health. Journaling reduces stress. It provides time for you to meditate. The process helps to make the positive forces in your life surface and it helps to bring the harmful elements into light. The result of personal journaling is a new perspective on how you can take control of many aspects of your life.
