Svaha Spirit Series: Awakening ~

Awakening is something that happens that is as unique to each of us as our DNA. We all experience it differently. Becoming aware is the first step. Spiritual awakening is like coming home. Some of us take longer than others, it’s not something you can force or rush.

I’ve experienced changes that have made me feel like I am finally becoming who I am meant to be, I know where I want to go as Jim Carrey said. I love this side of Jim Carrey! It’s easy to lose touch and get wrapped up in our busy lives, as long as we find our way back. I’ve learnt to just relax, not worry, what’s meant to be will be. I don’t create circumstances that go against myself. And I live in the Now! I found this video and thought it summed it up quite nicely! Enjoy ~


Svaha Spirit Series ~ Jim Carrey on Awakening

I found this video while I was browsing through one of my new favourite websites, Spirit Library. It’s Jim Carrey discussing very opening his life-long pursuit for meaning and purpose. I love seeing this side of him! He is humble and sincere with his trademark humour thrown in for a laugh here and there.

I read two of Eckart Tolle’s books, The Power of Now and The New Earth a couple of years ago and felt just the same as Jim did after reading them. If you would like either of these books just click on the title and it will take you where you need to go!

Midlife, Crisis or Awakening?

I have been thinking a lot lately about midlife.  Why, you ask, when I’m only 30-ish! (cough, choke, spit)  If asked straight out I don’t lie about my age.  I never have.  (I just become a low talker)  I am quite the opposite actually as  I usually admit to being the age I will be next.

We need to stop associating ‘midlife’ with ‘crisis’.  Why is it that when we finally start to feel like ourselves again that we have to classify this as a crisis?  Should it not be midlife celebration?  I don’t know about you, but it is for me and my circle of friends!Midlife Celebration!

We go through our 20’s where we think we know everything.  Well, at least I did.  My way or the highway!  We have the world by the tail.  We have few responsibilities with the exception of school and a part-time job.  We have freedom to do what we want, when we want, where we want, with whom we want.  Pause for a moment here and just daydream a moment with me.  Read slowly….What you want, when you want, where you want, with whom you want!  Did you giggle?  Smile at least?  Nothing wrong with remembering your past as long as you aren’t living in it.

We enter into our 30’s with more knowledge of what life is all about.  We hopefully have a job that has the potential of developing into a career.  Most of us have a partner and start to think of marriage and having a family.  We learn the importance of compromise.  But with that comes less time for ourselves and our life goes out of balance for a time.

We quickly reached our 40’s.  I must have had fun because man that went fast.  We have confidence in our opinions.  We have more freedom as our kids become independent.  More me time.  We start to find ourselves again and it feels incredible!  I just don’t see how this is a crisis.

Men buy sports cars, motorcycles or boats because they used enjoy them before they were required to trade them in for the mini van.  Compromise.  Women start to spend more time with their friends because that is what they used to do before their family took priority.  We start to live again.  We accept more, we say no and we don’t concern ourselves with the small things in life anymore.  We enjoy ourselves again without the attitude or desire of knowing it all.  It is a blessing to enter the second half of life with a carefree attitude.  We learn to embrace every moment we are given.  We have learned to live in the moment and  not judge.  We love,  we grow as souls, we appreciate everything the world has given to us to explore.  We finally GET IT!  That my friends is an Awakening not a crisis!
