Why Fear Is Your Best Friend

Why Fear Is Your Best Friend

These days fear can get a bad name. Be fearless. Don’t be afraid. Fear holds you back. Fear is an illusion. “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”

If you make fear your enemy, you will always be in a battle with it. If you realise it is your friend, if you realise that its whole intention is actually to keep you safe and away from any possible pain, then suddenly fear becomes this energy that you realise is full of power. All that matters is our relationship to it...

How To Stop Being Rushed By Others

How To Stop Being Rushed By Others

Whether you are at work, with friends, with family, or just standing in line at the supermarket, some of us can not only be very aware of our surroundings and how other people feel, but also allow other people's feelings or frustrations to push us into acting in a way that is unnatural for us. Hopefully this article can give you some tips on how to resolve this, and stop being unnecessarily rushed or hurried by others...

The Mirror Of Other People's Opinions

The Mirror Of Other People's Opinions

A common discomfort for people is caring too much what others think of them. Other people's opinions start to become a big deal. Here is a possible solution.

Usually how we fear to be judged by others, is simply a mirror of how we have already judged ourselves. If we believe something about ourselves, and if we don’t like this belief, if we resist it or aren’t comfortable with it, then we will fear other minds believing the same thing too...

Stages Of The Emotional Healing Process

Today's blog post is sharing an extra chapter that I have recently added to the book "Undisturbed; A Guide To Emotional Wellness."

Don't Have An Ideal Self...

Don't Have An Ideal Self...

We can become so caught up with trying to be a certain way, to be better than we are, that we end up in constant conflict with ourselves, running away from who we are.

In a world that often seems to be telling you to be something else, it can be a liberation to no longer have an ideal self...

Don't Be Faithful To Suffering...

“We tend to give great value and importance to our painful emotions, we seem to give great belief and importance to what makes us suffer. We are somehow addicted to it. Don't give such faith to what hurts. See how it feels to no longer contribute to that which internally disturbs. If you relinquish your faith in the painful, a more peaceful quality can emerge...”

Eat What Bothers You

Eat What Bothers You

Everyone tends to have thoughts or regrets or emotions or beliefs or worries or anything else inside that bothers them. It might be something that you think you missed out on, made a mistake on, or a belief that you feel is hard to shake, but is holding you back in life...

Undisturbed: A Guide To Emotional Wellness - Introduction

Undisturbed: A Guide To Emotional Wellness - Introduction

The aim is not to stop feeling emotions. Let all emotions come. This book aims to show that emotions are not wrong or bad, and need not be clung to or given such great importance.

To hold and cling on to emotions is a habit of the human mind, and it ends up creating great inner turmoil.

Controlling Things With Your Mind

Controlling Things With Your Mind

Can you control a situation with your mind?

Recently I was speaking with someone who was becoming stressed over a situation. A good thing was about to happen, it seemed as if it was all going to go smoothly, and then a very slight hiccup suggested that it was not yet in the bag, it was not yet a certain, done deal...

The Value Of Nothing

The Value Of Nothing

Sometimes you have to spend some time, really doing nothing. Not even meditating, or trying to meditate. Not doing anything. It does not even have to be for long. There is so much value in just closing off from the world temporarily to let your mind begin to sort itself out, or rather, to allow the intelligence of stillness to break through into the mind again...

How To Deal With Inner Resistance - Guided Meditation
