    Thank you, Chantilly! its great to see you here. So happy you liked it.

  3. Otiti says:

    These words made me relax so much as I read them. Awareness. Presence. This moment in time, right here and now. I found myself unwinding and being at peace because I wasn’t focused on anything other than what was happening at that moment. Thank you for this. You always touch my heart and I love you for it.

balancing act: the pursuit of balance OR authentic ease + fun: your choice

I am just going to say it. You don’t really want balance. What you really want is ease. You want life to be easier, yet you seek balance so intently you lose the actual state of feeling of authentic ease … Continue reading

    The analogy of falling in love is perfect for passion. I wonder about another aspect of falling in love. When life moves back into the daily routine, love can also show you where you are out of balance. When the initial honeymoon ends and your lives happen wherever there is unhealthy tendencies in both of you is when you start to see that as well. I wonder if the same is with passions. Using passion’s and dream’s take over to, once the dust settles, create changes in your life as you realize what is holding you back from that harmony. Just like in the relationship, you can self destruct and sabotage relationships and dreams by refusing to look at your issues and deal with them. I’m rambling but this post has definitely got me thinking in a lot of different directions.

  2. Premakarini says:

    Nikki, what I have found in my experience is that when we commit to following our passions initially there is a lot of excitement and euphoria but then through the amplifying effect you get to see whats not working also in your life, as you have observed in your experience. Great insight. Thank you for adding this, its important to know. Our passions definitely give us an opportunity to see our lives a little more clearly. Thank you for sharing your experience and insights! Powerful stuff! Its great to have you here. Keep me posted on what else this brings.

  3. Adonica says:

    Very true! Makes a change to see someone spell it out like that. 🙂

  4. Denisha says:

    Hats off to whoever wrote this up and posted it.

    I have been expressing and exploring transparent communication for the past several years and I just want to honour you and acknowledge your magnificence. You express yourself from the essence of truth, (transparency) and the essence of love (heart). This is a wonderful sharing of your soul and a beautiful reminder to be here now and enjoy every single droplet of life with no judgement just celebration and appreciation. Thank you for being you, thank you for giving me the mirror to see myself. I love you xx

  6. Premakarini says:

    Thank you for seeing the world with so much love, and vision. What you are doing is so powerful in terms of transparent communication, love + connection, I am just so happy that you are in my world. Lovelove! xo love you too!

    I love this. Have you read “A Place of Yes” by Bethenny Frankel? Sometimes the power of yes is indescribable – it can make someone’s day, it can free us from the rut mentality, it can cause us to do things we may have otherwise resisted. So true. And sometimes the power of yes is saying no. I think the power is in knowing the difference in what we should say yes to that grows & matures us. We have to learn what things may be uncomfortable for us, but we know will propel us forward, regardless. And say yes. Then we have to learn the things to say no to – the things that we know will deplete us, take our energy, and deprive us. Yes is not being a “yes man” in my opinion. It’s creating home – the place you always go back to, your morals, your values, your growth point inside. Yes is the place you are able to make great decisions from and take risks safely because it’s home – it’s who you are. Sometimes no is the best place of yes. Love this blog!

  2. Premakarini says:

    Tamisha!
    Thank you for sharing such powerful insights. Yes, it is important to know what to say no to, and that is one of the things I love about having this focus: it increases awareness so its easy to see what is of real value and how to follow what energizes you and brings clarity. I love this insight that you share: ” It’s creating home – the place you always go back to, your morals, your values, your growth point inside. Yes is the place you are able to make great decisions from and take risks safely because it’s home – it’s who you are. Sometimes no is the best place of yes.” So beautiful and true. I haven’t read that book, but you know what I am going to check it out. Its great to see you here. Make this blog your home – feel free to add anything at any time.

  1. Otiti says:

    Ahh, where do I begin? Authenticity. Permission. REAL expression. They’re often whittled down or wholly absent from our lives because we’re so attuned to the cues in our external environment: “Maybe I should dress this way so these people will accept me. I should probably talk like this so I can belong to that (cool) circle. I wonder if they’ll like me more if I act just like them?” It’s all such a waste of time!
    The courage to stand apart, to follow your own voice, to BE YOUR OWN person, is something we all need to grab in great big fistfuls. No one’s going to give us their blessing to be our true selves. We have to do it for ourselves, for us. Because it’s liberating. Because we need to. Because we have the right to dare and the light to shine brighter than the stars in the sky and the fire to burn baby burn.

  2. Jessie Jess says:

    Otiti thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! Real expression can be a constant struggle for individuals. We hope we can shed some light on this and get the conversation started. Your thoughts are very inspiring!

  3. Otiti says:

    Oh, I just realised I forgot to share what gives me permission to be myself! Writing my truth. Living it. Having a safe space to bare my heart’s expression with the people I love and trust. Matching my behaviour to my intuition. Dancing in the flow of my core even if I’m the only one hearing the music, LOL.

  4. Otiti says:

    Oh wow, thank you! You inspired me too. I believe inspiration begets inspiration, LOL. Premakarini and I were wondering how to get more voices to open up and share their experiences on here, so I’m just doing what I can to encourage everyone out there. 🙂

  5. Premakarini says:

    Thank you so much for being a part of this, Otiti! Isn’t it powerful to do this?! And fun! I so appreciate all that you add, always! xo

  6. Premakarini says:

    I know that for me living my passions: giving myself permission to do only what I adore, has totally changed the game, too. Thanks for mentioning this: powerful!

  7. Premakarini says:

    Authentic expression:I wonder what makes it hardest? Social pressure to fit in or is it a simple lack of awareness of what is possible? Always trying to figure this out so I can share more helpful ideas + information.

  8. Premakarini says:

    SO SO true! well said! AMEN!! thank you for saying: “It takes courage to stand apart, to follow your own voice, to be your own person” I think just saying these words empowers. And you are so right in saying that we are looking for external cues instead of taking the time to explore who we WANT to be more than anything – or anyone – else. I think that the moment we REALIZE this, everything changes.
    Otiti! Thank you so!

  1. Dyamond says:

    This is POWERFUL! Definitely an eye-opener. I’ve noticed that the more in tune I am with my emotions, the stronger the pain feels too. And I didn’t think of it (until now) that I’m just becoming more in tune with my being, but that I wasn’t in tune with myself at all. 🙂 Love you!

  2. Otiti says:

    YES!!! Yes yes yes!! Our emotions are who we are and there’s nothing wrong with actually being able to FEEL so intensely or deeply; it just shows that we truly are alive. Whatever happens TO us isn’t as important + powerful as what happens FOR us. I think we get so caught up in trying not to feel negative emotions that we forget they’re part and parcel of life and learning. Thank you so much for sharing your wise words, and I’m thrilled my post sparked a fuse in your heart! 😀 It’s all about authentic expression, innit? I love you and I know you’ll get through this. Hugs!

  3. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words, insights & perceptions with such love & tenderness. I have been healing some deep wounds within over the past week and your thoughts are helping to shine light into the shadow spaces within myself. Thank you so much for all that you are! So magnificent. <3

    Just stretch and go a little farther and find yourself. Great post, I live it.

    For me love is tolerance. The acceptance of the fact that the partner can have different opinion about something. and that she or he will not necessarily like to do everything with us.
