Stay Inspired in Difficulty – Part 2

by Cheryl Brewster

The Obstacle is the Path. I know this to be true. The very thing that creates confusion in my mind or terror in my gut is the very antidote to that stress. And the answer to that confusion, terror, difficulty, heartbreak, disappointment or challenge is this… it’s here to be used to my advantage.When I approach life from this perspective, I go to a whole new level of awareness and effectiveness.

How about you?

Scott Peck said that “Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

That’s huge! Life-changing! It helps us tackle the things we don’t want to, because we have discovered an inner power that transcends our resistance, procrastination or limitations. What are 3 simple steps we can use to develop this kind of life-altering perspective?

1. Use difficulty to your advantage.
Challenge and change are unavoidable. But your perspective is totally your creation. The question is… have you created consciously or unconsciously? Awareness will course-correct perspective to help, not hinder you. It sounds simplistic, but when you “take your stand for inspiration in difficulty,” postponing peace or your sense of capability, is no longer an option. Difficulty is used to your advantage… immediately. Want proof? Identify a current difficulty and list at least 5 ways you can use it to your advantage… you’ll probably find more. Decide on the one tiny baby step you can take right now, in this moment… and then the next and the next.

2. See difficulty as your servant, not your master
What do these names have in common? Terry Fox, Rick Hanson, Nick Fugicic, Christopher Reeves, Maya Angelou, Anne Frank and Victor Frankl? That’s right, they used their obstacles, difficulties and tragedies as inner paths to freedom. Their capacity to see life from this perspective is the same path of power available to us…  Our willingness and commitment to embrace the obstacle as the path redefines us, makes us aware of points of inner power that we didn’t see before. We can start from the humblest beginnings and yet lead the most extraordinary of lives. Immediately.

3. Recognize that all difficulty is the invitation to peak performance.
This perspective cuts through emotional baggage, irrational fear, worry and stress. Difficulty is the very thing that brings out the best in us. The result is knowing we can handle the situation immediately… in the now, the present… “while” we face our shadows, worries or innermost demons.. because the truth is, the hardest battle we will ever fight is with our own thoughts and emotions…. Will we be true to what calls us and stand up for what matters? That’s the call to inner truth, self-trust and personal development and mastery. It’s what gives us the grit, courage and tenacity to do the right thing. It’s what frees us from the insidiousness of  unchallenged fears.

By staying inspired in difficulty, we drop the habit of “hoping the problem will go away,” and embrace a strength that was here all along, but wasn’t being used. Staying inspired in difficulty helps us surpass all forms of mediocrity, victimization, self-doubt and exhaustion. We stop projecting the past onto the future and begin to truly enjoy the present moment. We master the very things that once held us back.

Stay inspired. It is difficulty’s equal partner. The obstacle is the path. Begin today and if you’re stuck or not wondering quite where to start, that’s okay! Start anyway… what’s just one small step you can take right now? Take it! Nothing is more rewarding than “right action!” That’s you mining the gold in the shadow of your subconscious. It’s worth it. And it’s waiting for you!

Fearless Action to Master Change

by Cheryl Brewster

Take Action!

What wants to move through you? That idea or project that is relentless in its pursuit of your attention and call to action. The one that keeps tapping at your shoulder, yelling in your ear and tugging at your heart… the one that says if you don’t slow down and really look at this, you’ll continue down the slippery slope of unachieved goals, regret and unexpressed creativity.

In her seminal book “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway,” Susan Jeffers provides a powerful, clear strategy for turning pain into power. Her bottom line is that the only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out and do it! So why don’t we? I love her two-fold answer… the first is education (you didn’t learn the facts about fear); the second is the reminder that every time you feel afraid, that it’s simply because you are not feeling good enough about yourself.

The  interplay here between intuition and self esteem makes sense.  Intuition is the driving need for self expression; it’s also the path through fear that takes us from pain to power.  The heart knows the way…the heart always feels good about itself… in fact it can never not feel good about itself because it’s the very essence of life,  limitless in its power. Intuition then, uses the power of the heart to shore up where we don’t feel so great about ourselves so we can move forward into action!

So how do we overcome fear and take action to follow the heart, and honour those intuitive impulses? As Jeffers brilliantly counsels:

  1. Reframe fear
    Remind yourself that when you feel fear, it’s because you’re not feeling good about yourself….Fear then, can be seen as a useful marker, pointing the need and path to higher self esteem.
  1. Decide that “I’ll handle it” is your new (and only) life perspective.
    When fear becomes a habit, we’ve allowed “less than” beliefs or helplessness to feel stronger than the reality of our capability and  infinitely powerful essence . When you decide that no matter what happens, “I’ll handle it,” fear dissolves!
  1. Take Action
    Feeling good follows action – too often we reverse the process thinking that when we feel better, then we will act.  The opposite actually is true. Whether it’s massive action, or one tiny step, the truth is, that nothing will change without taking action.
  1. Measure results with a pain to power chart.
    Check-in daily  to see if you’re moving on the chart from pain to power. If you’re not, it’s because you’re not taking responsibility for that area of your life.
  1. Practice the ABCs of Intuition.
    Aware, Breathe, Connect – this simple 3-step process is the link between self esteem and action.  AWARE of the power within that’s stronger than any obstacle; BREATHE that power in and CONNECT to the heart – it knows the way…. we can trust ourselves and the process of life…. we can drop self doubt and take action from an inspired, empowered place. Self love steps out into action, no problem!

If you have a calling or intuition that you know you’re not following through on as completely as you could, ask yourself why you’re resisting or delaying. You’ll get an immediate answer. Now what is one small thing that you can do to move yourself from the pain to power chart?  Do that thing… the highest form of integrity is the noble task of honoring what wants to move through you.

Imagination is POWER!

by Cheryl Brewster
“What if?” When we ask that one simple question, we open up to an infinite realm of imagination AND high performance in virtually any area of life – from personal happiness to business success.There are two sides to the imagination coin:

  • On the one side, imagination is often misunderstood, downplayed, misused and even ignored. 
  • A life without imagination however, is a life without vitality, wonder, awe or impetus; it becomes, stale, withered, dull and boring.
  • Dreams and visions die on the vine and we are left bereft, disappointed, hardened and stuck.
  • Personal effectiveness is diminished, relationships are affected, career growth can be impeded
  • We lose hope, focus and can succumb to a sticky, heavy energy field that feels impossible to break out of.

On the same side, we can can also experience over-active, uncontrolled negative imagination where:

  • The terror of worst case possibilities pummels our self-identity and self esteem
  • We feel traumatized in a seemingly endless cycle of paralysis and self-sabotage.
  • We become immobilized, unable to access our personal power and take action to create healthy change

Fortunately, the positive side of the imagination coin provides:

  • Immediate relief, relaxation, wonder, awe, enjoyment so the “good vibes” of what we are imagining is really happening right now.
  • Access to the high vibration frequency of ease and well-being that all top achievers in their field use
  • A new paradigm free from threat: It’s called many names; being in the zone, peak experiences, the larger “field of intelligence” that is our true nature, etc.. 
  • A guaranteed path to freedom from self doubt and worry
  • Discernment with integration of both sides of the brain resulting in more clarity, easier decision making and more accurate access to intuition

Put your positive imagination to work moment by moment!

  • You will experience a greater presence; the ability to stay present and be open to what arises without judgment or threat
  • Do this enough times and you establish an internal training routine that transforms reactive stress triggers to high performance breakthroughs
  • As Walt Disney said, “it’s fun to do the impossible,” so remember – DREAM BIG!

TAKE YOUR STAND- Lead from your Imagination to tap into a more joyful, intelligent, connected state of awareness!

  1. Use “what if” – questions to direct you where you want to go, for example, what if I got today’s tasks done quickly and easily?
  2. How would it feel to be super confident? Ask the question, notice the images and feel the feelings
  3. Go back into a great memory and relive it – take that inspiration and energy into how you do things
  4. Be a kid again in your mind and have an adventure – where would you go, what would you do, who would you be? Apply what you discover.
  5. Recall amazing night time dreams that you’ve had – what did it feel like to do the impossible?
  6. Visualize yourself as a favorite super hero – who would you be? Have a conversation! What would they tell you about your life?
  7. See if there are periods of history or geographical locations that you’d love to visit – imagine what they’d be like – soak up the great vibes
  8. Imagine releasing pain from your body – what’s the first image you see? Use it frequently – trust its affects
  9. When you breathe, imagine every cell in your body vitalized to the max for optimum performance
  10. Pay attention to signs, symbols and synchronicity that will begin to emerge as you use your imagination more frequently
  11. KEEP PRACTICING! Use the ABCs of Intuition to counterbalance the affects of uncontrolled, negative imagination to stay present even when it’s uncomfortable or unpleasant.

“What if “thinking is an instant bridge to your imagination – the BRIDGE from the sub-conscious to the conscious…. when we cross this bridge enough times, we are more aware of our innate goodness and strengths. We break the bonds of past limiting beliefs. We are working in the quantum field, re-wiring the brain and creating healthier habits to bring us results we could have never accessed through logic. The mind has learned from the past. Imagination is infinite wisdom beyond what the mind can access. When we make the mind the servant and not the master, we have the winning combination of structure, brain power and vision.

The healing power of imagination works –  you’ve proven it to yourself in the past and it’s time to prove it again. It’s an endless renewable resource that is available 24/7 –  Imagination is POWER! All that is required is your willingness to engage it, to apply its wisdom and  be the super-power that you really are.

Business Stress – 3 Ways Intuition Can Help

by Cheryl Brewster

As a conscious minded business person, your goal is to provide the highest quality products and services in the most efficient, sustainable methods possible, with customer satisfaction and healthy profit.. But what happens when challenges come up that rock your world? Our knee-jerk reactions take over. Big Time. While some reactions can be  effective, most are not.  Intuitive Development plays a critical role in catching those gut-wrenching situations and transforming them into effective learning experiences. The caveat here however, is that we must be willing to re-frame how we look at ourselves and stress.

How Intuition helps to  reduce business stress:

1. Rule number one in intuitive development is to breathe.
Over time we learn to look at breathing in a whole new way:  slowly, deeply, consciously and deliberately.
This kicks us out of the “fight or flight” sequence and gets us connected back to our body wisdom. Otherwise, the huge rush of chemicals released in the body can take over our perspective and we all know what happens… we react (based on the past) rather than respond (based on the present). Without taking time to breathe, we simply repeat old patterns again and again. We’ve heard this a million times… breathe deeply and slowly, but are we actually doing it?
TIP: Use association. Choose something that happens frequently and use it as a reminder… for example…. every time your phone rings, use it as a marker to check-in and breathe slowly, deeply, consciously and deliberately before you answer it.

2.  How would you feel if everything was really okay?
Our intuition has access to the bigger picture that the five senses don’t.  Just take a look at nature’s beauty and perfection – there’s an invisible harmony that runs our world – when we breathe into that inner harmony, we operate from a success minded perspective. Our job becomes less fear-driven and more purpose driven; by allowing this inner harmony to emerge through us, we become aware of possibilities we didn’t see before..  We think more clearly.  Intuition draws from this creative space while fear prevents our access to it.
TIP: Re-frame stress as a  signal to refocus on the inner harmony already inside of you; it builds supreme self trust and improves the thinking process.

3. How would you act if you were already successful?
Ask this simple question in any situation and see what happens! You’ll feel instant relief and guidance and find it easier to drop ineffective thinking patterns.
TIP: Make this question a new practice by using your tea or coffee break to sit with the answers. Be sure to keep a journal handy!

The bottom line: Intuitive Principles reduce stress and add an element of self discovery. They increase profit by creating a new perspective of trust and freeing up stuck energy. Intuitive Development takes time and practice but it’s affects can be felt immediately.  Our biggest challenge as entrepreneurs is to give ourselves the same time, care and attention we give to our customers. Start small and build from there… these three simple steps can have profound affects on your business!

Your Life Vision – Go For It!

by Cheryl Brewster

Vision… what possibilities can you create, say yes to this year?

“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”
~ Nora Roberts

What is your vision for this year? What plans have you made to incorporate your highest aspirations and goals?
Perhaps you’re clear – and perhaps you’re not.  But this one thing is certain… as per the quote above, if you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it.

Oftentimes the most simple concepts are ones we miss because they appear too obvious.  To facilitate clear thinking and developing more ability to “stay present,” the following are helpful:

1. Defrag your mind in nature; the ocean or the forest provide restorative moments so necessary to good health and a clear mind.
2. Are you focused on solutions or problems?
3. Do an inventory… where are you acting/not acting on what you most want?
4. What are 3 small things you can do today to focus and take action on what you DO want?
5. What are you grateful for?

Notice that where you have gratitude in life, things are probably bubbling along nicely. There’s most likely trust,  peace and prosperity in these areas.
Notice where you do not have gratitude, that you get into trouble? Is there peace and prosperity in these areas? Are you trusting yourself?
Our attention will grow whatever we’re focused on, so get good at going into the “unknown” where solutions exist but may not be apparent yet.

As you head into the this month and the rest of the year, what do you want to grow?
They key to effectiveness is dropping self discovery and self development.

A big part of Visioning is taking time out to breathe and do a quick inventory; it allows us to course correct and get excited about our emerging vision again. Personal effectiveness can only grow as we evaluate and course correct.  The key is kindness and compassion – they are relevant task masters by reducing resistance – the obstacle to true growth and change.

How can you incorporate kindness and compassion as practical strategy in moving forward? Part of why we don’t go after what we want is because we shut ourselves down… we may see our dreams and goals as too impossible. Kindness doesn’t do that… it allows, invites and shows a different way. It makes peace with the willingness to be in the wilderness of the unknown, where your intuition resides, waiting for you to call on it.

Get All the Answers you Need with This One Simple Question by Guest Contributor Emma-Louise Elsey

by Cheryl Brewster

Are you having trouble with making a choice or decision? Well, whether it’s something specific or an ongoing issue I want you to know that YOU have ALL the answers you need. To EVERYTHING in your life.

But all too often we literally block ourselves from the answers we need. We get in our own way because we’re afraid. One of the most common fears is a simple fear of uncertainty and the unknown – but it could be a fear of failure, fear of upsetting others (guilt), a fear of what others will think of us, or even a fear of success. All of these fears and more can stop our minds from giving us the answers we need – a simple self-protection mechanism to avoid difficulty and keep us safe. Clever eh?

So, you need answers? Let’s get started!

Here’s Your Question and Simple 3 Step Process to Get All the Answers You Need:

1. Give yourself FULL permission to KNOW the answer and TAKE NO ACTION. In fact you never need to act on it – you can decide later. Take a moment to absorb this fully before you move onto Step 2.

2. Now ask yourself, “If I secretly knew the answer to _______________________, what would it be?”
TIP 1: Remember, you don’t need to act on it. Just answer the question – as if you SECRETLY knew.
TIP 2: What we’re really doing here is asking your intuition – knowledge that comes from your gut, instinct or simple ‘knowing’.

3. Breathe deeply. Let the answer arise. Then, once you have your answer, awesome! Give yourself a pat on the back and for now, just sit with your answer and let it be.

Still no answer? That’s OK – trust and have patience. Give yourself until the end of today or the end of the week. Then just let the answer ARISE from within – imagining it rising from the depths of your true being. Perhaps it’s been hidden away and just needs to feel safe to come out – so give it a little space and time!

Remember: To get around the fear remember that just because you know something doesn’t mean you need to act on it. In fact you can know something and stay exactly where you are. Safe.

You can use this question any time to get the answers you need. Taking action may come later, but first you need to know. And once you know, everything else will follow naturally.

PS: While we did agree that you don’t have to act on it, I have a suggestion. I’d like you to reserve the right to act on it at some point in the future – when you’re ready and you want to! Just a thought…

Spiritual Awakening – can we choose outrageous joy?

by Cheryl Brewster
YouTube Preview Image

How willing are you to be brave, positive, confident, adventurous, fun, and peaceful? What feelings do these words invoke? Try this experiment: take a moment to reread these words and REALLY experience the feelings they represent.  What would happen if you were outrageous in bringing them into your day,  moment by moment, including today’s:

  • to-do list
  • biggest problems or challenges
  • judgment of yourself and others

What would happen to your day? Your relationships? Your past hurts?
What would happen to how much you got done? Or the quality of the work and how you did it?
What would your experience be?

The power of our emotions plays a crucial role in everything we do, including our intuition and our prosperity.  Just a short few minutes consciously, deliberating choosing to be in alignment with our positive feeling emotions can help us:

  • become more  aligned with our center
  • help us see things we need to change so we can course correct into balance with love and compassion
  • be more patient, kind and accepting of the process of spiritual awakening
  • stay more present
  • be more at peace

1. Awareness first, then Action
As Esther and Jerry Hicks remind us in their book The Astonishing Power of Emotions: “An awareness of your emotions and what they mean is essential to your conscious evolution…. allowing yourself to become what life has caused you to desire is not about action. It is about the aligning of thought Energies. It is about focusing your attention in the direction of your desire rather than looking back at the current conditions that have given birth to your desire.” I interpret this as mindfulness birthing right action; it starts with a willingness to be emotionally present not only with what is, but with the certainty of what CAN be. As Napoleon Hill said, “you must have a keen, pulsating desire that transcends everything.”

2. Are you swimming against the current or going with the flow?
To paraphrase Hicks: we believe that anyone who amounts to anything has to work very hard, against the current. Turning downstream to go with the flow is labelled as too easy, even lazy. However, here’s the rub: “Nothing that you want is against the current!” The Stream of Life, if we allow it to carry us, is always downstream… the flow of life that we can trust… hence today’s “DARE YA!”.  Spiritual awakening – can you let yourself go with it’s flow?

3. Emotions help direct from ineffectiveness to improvement
“In this moment, am I turned toward improvement or away from it? The emotion you feel will give you the answer.” We’re either choosing to struggle or to flow… it’s that simple.

4. Take the dare, go with the flow
So let’s go back to the challenge of the day and be willing to experiment…. how will you know the power of peace if you don’t actually choose it? No matter what happens… can you let peace be here too, amid the inherent discomfort of painful emotions of spiritual awakening? Take a look at the list of emotions at the top of this article…. how will you know their power if you don’t actually choose them?

Helen Keller said that life is a daring adventure or nothing. Despite the physical challenges of being both blind and deaf, this amazing woman became one of America’s most famous educators, and internationally acclaimed inspiring speakers. She accepted her impediments; she let them carry her into her awakening. You do the same, when you allow fear to be here and choose peace anyway.

Experiment for just one hour, one day, one week…. in the process of your spiritual awakening…. will you BELIEVE; can you let the flow of life carry you into the present moment where inspired action arises in its own timing? In doing so, you let go of the unconscious patterns contributing to your worry and stress. And let’s face it… isn’t spiritual awakening only possible by choosing to allow peace, happiness and freedom to be here now, even when, or especially when we don’t really feel like it?

Dare ya!

Find a spiritual coach

Transforming vision into action first starts with feeling the “angst” of that vision. In this youtube video I share some of the “symptoms” that can occur when we are in the midst of spiritual growing pains.  We are living in exciting, dynamic and intense times… the shift of consciousness that we are in is extracting a price; we need to let go of “living small” to step into the majesty of “our best lives.”

And that can create just a wee bit of angst!

Where are you in your angst? Where are you in your vision? Feeling stuck? Feeling scared? Good! Your emotional guidance system is letting you know that something needs to change; something’s growing, it’s ready to POP!  It’s time to take an action step that is different from what you’ve done before. It’s time to go deeper into your purpose.

What is that for you today? What does your heart tell you? Can you let yourself sit in the dynamic tension of the two, that push/pull struggle…. can you let yourself feel your feelings once and for all, so that something new can arise?  This is the path of initiation and commitment, over and over again.  The willingness to let go of control of the small self for the peace and knowing of the infinite self.

Easy to say, much harder to actually do.

I often share the story of how I came into acceptance of my own personal “calling” by kicking and screaming the whole way. Becoming a professional psychic/intuitive was totally beyond anything I could ever have imagined… it went against all of the spiritual, cultural and social/moral  beliefs I’d grown up with. And yet… it has led me to a life of purpose, peace and passion that is also beyond anything I could ever  have imagined.  Living my gifts and talents, is living my best life and supports those around me in doing the same.   I would never have known and be able to teach, share and counsel with others if I had not gone through the experience myself. It takes great courage to walk this path of expanding spiritual awareness… and it is SO worth it!

What is your heart calling you to? What is that “forbidden place” within you that you won’t look at?  Quite often, it’s simply the confidence to listen to our callings…. and of course, this spiritual journey will require change, otherwise the angst turns into suffering.

Tips to move forward:

  • Your intuition will never lead you wrong – you can trust it, but you must take the time out to hear and discern it
  • What does your gut tell you? What do you feel in your bones?
  • Avoid cosmic constipation by honoring your quiet times to connect and then to take action
  • Embrace uncomfortable feelings as friends letting you know they’ve got something better for you
  • Talk to a trusted friend or spiritual coach; so often it helps just to verbalize what’s going on

Empowerment Amid Transition

by Cheryl Brewster

Conscious Changemakers are Brave!

Awareness breaks the cycle of fear; transition becomes opportunity, possibility and even excitement! Empowerment through Transition…  Clarity and wisdom distilled by you choosing a POSITIVE life experience; creating prosperity from the upheaval that feels anything but positive. Here’s to your Joy, Trust and Courage as a Conscious Changemaker! Remember… we were born to be Happy.

In my recent workshops that address these issues, 4 key steps stand out as superior navigation tools to ride the transformative waves of emotion and change we’re going through:

Four Steps to Empowerment Amid Transition using the ABC’s of Intuition
Aware, Breathe, Connect

1. What are your top 4 prosperity fears?
Remember prosperity isn’t just financial… it applies to all of life’s areas.
When you name them, you identify your fears; they are no longer vague, slippery, lurking or screaming shadows that can never be nailed down and resolved.

2. Trace the energy signature.
Where did this fear come from? See where it leads to… notice where you can take this on as your personal identity rather than just a fear.

3. What triggers the fears?
While you can’t control the people and events around you – you can choose your response. Courage is required! Remember that pain will show us what needs to change but suffering and overly zealous self recrimination are useless. This is choice point. Do you want to stay stuck in the trigger or break free by dropping the charge?

4. What changes can I make to focus on peace instead?
This is your portal of power; the transformative pipeline that takes you from fear and heavy negative energy to peace and knowing. Your own personal energy signature knows what to do and takes you straight to that place of freedom within you. Fear can be transformed to inspired action!

The common link to intuition and happiness

by Cheryl Brewster

Have you noticed that when you are inspired, you are happy? And even if things aren’t going great, that inspiration will lift you up and out of those heavy feelings?

When we’re inspired, we’re trusting that everything is okay and that there is something beautiful and wondrous about life. Taking that higher place of vibration even one step further, being enthusiastic is an even great level of inspiration because it usually leads to action.  As Thoreau urged us, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you’ve imagined.”

Because intuition can only ever be available in the present moment, and inspiration keeps us here now, being inspired is one of the most effective tools we can use to anchor into our intuitive knowingness. So the call to action in this blog today, is to know what inspires you and to consistently, deliberately choose to be inspired.  The self discipline originally required becomes a habit and that’s where all GREAT things begin… it’s the maintenance that we begin to take for granted.  And it’s that slippery slide into “stinkin’ thinkin” that can soon be upon us.

So to stay present and inspired… let’s review today’s tips to help get you back into the positive, happy side of life!  Sounds silly to even say it out loud… it seems so obvious… until it’s not and we find ourselves feeling disconnected.

Today’s action:

1. Live simply
2. Tell the truth
3. Behave as if you were inspired
4. Trust that the universe is conspiring to support you
5. Let go of the past….
6. Embrace the silent, inner pulse of life carrying you… and let it!
