What is your Success Mantra?


When I discover simple ideas that resonate with my soul, I share Success Mantrathem.

Gay Hendricks has written The Big Leap, a book that inspires, motivates and creates a guide for mastery of Self.

But the big take-away for me is his success mantra.

I changed it a bit and added a graphic that makes me happy every time I look at it. (Please share to inspire others to dance :-)).

Life is a dance –

will you dance with me?

I am holding a virtual dance party! To be on the invitation list, please go to my website (KathrynEriksen.com) and sign up for my emails. You will be added to the invitation list and receive lots of great information on ways to live a life as happy as these two girls! Can’t you just feel their joyful energy spilling off the page?

Heart Dancing – It’s the Only Way to Live!

Attitude is…Everything


AttitudeI keep relearning this truth. In every moment, I can choose to see the light or the darkness; the good or the bad; the best or the worst. When I choose light – I am free. When I choose darkness – I get more darkness.

Whatever and whenever I decide to see — the Universe reflects it back to me.

We are Like Sea Glass


I never heard of sea glass until I took a trip to Key West for a retreat. One of the speakers passed around a basket full of sea glass and asked the 30+ people to take one. When it was my turn, I chose the darkest, fullest piece I could find.

Why?

Because that was the bit of silicon that had been through the toughest forces…had tumbled the most on the waves…and had it survived. Instead of cracking, shattering or being crushed by its journey, that glass had absorbed the larger energy and become stronger. Because of its journey, it was a beautiful reminder of transformation.

Are you struggling with powerful forces in your life right now? Do you feel as if you should give up or give in, even when you know it is not the best path for your growth and expansion? Are you tired of the conflict and turmoil?

Believe

Take heart – that fact that you are reading this post and nodding your head is enough evidence that you have already survived.

You are worthy…or you would not be here, right here, right now. You are strong…or you would have already given up. You are valued…isn’t it time to value yourself?

Trust in love greater than you can fathom or imagine.

Know that your journey is part of your contract.

What appear to be obstacles to your small mind are really stepping-stones on your path.

Breathe in the goodness of life and allow it to flow through you.

 Reframe. Release. Renew. Rinse and Repeat.

It’s another step in the Heart Dance. (can you hear the music playing?)

Tonight is the Night


With the arrival of Spring, the Heart Dancing Radio Show has moved to a new day of the week. And a new time.

We are now broadcasting live on Sunday night, 8:00 p.m. cst.

(AwakenedRadio.net or the TuneIn app).

Tonight, I will share the third episode in the Heart Dancing Steps series. To remember how to live from your heart, not your head, there are certain concepts and steps to integrate into your life. Tonight, I will share the lyrics and the dance steps of Heart Dancing.

Please share your name and email address so you can be the first to know about my new program.

Email signupCan’t wait for you to join me in the dance!

 

Did you Listen?


Thank you for listening to the Heart Dancing Radio Show last night! Learning to listen to the music of your heart is easy when you know how. And the benefits are huge – loneliness, resentment, fear and doubt become things of your past. Your present is filled with love, joy and happiness. Acceptance of yourself and others is the new normal.

It’s such an easier way to live!

During the show, IFaceBook Group invited you to join the Heart Dancing FaceBook Group so we can continue to share, interact and learn from each other. When I woke up this morning, several people messaged me on Twitter and said that they couldn’t find the group.

I am so glad that they told me — otherwise, I never would have known and would have wondered why there was no response to the invitation.

This is a perfect example of how I could have filled in the blanks and created a negative story about my mission, the radio show, etc. I could have easily been “hooked” by my thoughts into a story that made me feel small, when the truth was something much simpler – that the link on FaceBook…for some reason…was not discoverable!

Thank you for your love and support. Let’s change the world, one heart at a time.

(If you missed the show, no worries. I will post the link later today in the HD FaceBook Group and on Twitter).

Music is Heart Language


DanceHave you ever been in a crummy mood and it changed instantly when you heard a great song?

Music speaks to your heart without words getting in the way.

Bonus:  I created a Heart Dancing Playlist! These are songs that speak to me, make me want to dance or that lift up my mood when I am having a bad moment.  What songs would you add that speak to your heart? Please let me know in the comments below.Email box

Do You Know Your Why?


Born andWhy

Wouldn’t answering the “Why” question in your life make a difference?

Would knowing that your value can never be destroyed change your perspective?

Would discovering your authentic voice make you feel seen?

All of this is possible – when you live from your heart and connect with your Source.

Don’t believe me?

Then please join me on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. cst for the Heart Dancing Radio Show. (go to AwakenedRadio.net or use the TuneIn app to listen live).

Heart Dancing Steps is a brand new concept that will be introduced for the first time on the radio show. It is a life philosophy that leads you to your authentic self, one step at a time. I am going to share more information during the radio and you will have an opportunity to call in live and ask questions.

That is how we dance together – to the heartbeat of life!

Aren’t you ready to discover why you are here?

Believing is Seeing


TheUniverseYesterday I listened to a podcast interview of Dr. Jean Houston, who is regarded as one of the principal founders of the Human Potential Movement.  During the interview, one sentence really struck me in the gut. It was this:

You live in the Universe. The Universe lives in you.

Imagine the ramifications of that statement. It means that we can co-create with the Universe. What we imagine and perceive from our unique perspective is translated by the Universe into form. That is incredibly empowering!

But it was the next thing that Dr. Houston said that rocked my world:

If you change the way you view the Universe, the Universe itself spontaneously reflects that change back to you. The Universe is not separate from your perception.

What that means, friends, is that what you perceive will be directly reflected back to you. If you don’t like what you perceive in your life — it is up to you to change your perception.  Just sit with those two sentences for a moment and see if they don’t resonate with truth. They certainly did for me.

Let’s take this a step further. If you look at your life as it exists today and see things that do not make you happy, can you change your perception about them? The answer is yes, if you believe you can make that change. If you don’t believe you can, then you can’t. Which brings up another question, one that can lead to deliberate creation.

Aren’t your beliefs just part of your perception?

What are beliefs? A collection of thoughts bundled around a theme. Your beliefs are formed from your experiences, so that when you encounter a similar situation, you will recognize it and have a touch point to interpret it. Every time something triggers that belief, you mind trots it out to filter your present reality. And guess what – you see what you believe.

That is why people perceive the same event differently. Their beliefs form a filter that shifts out the non-corroborating data that does not support the belief. The belief filter allows the supporting bits of data to come through and the underlying belief is “proven” once again.

If you believe that money is hard to come by, it will be. If you believe that you are “no good at love,” you won’t be. If you believe that you are miserable in your job, you will be, because your perception will only see the people and things that support that belief. See how this works?

Look at the areas of your life where you are less than happy. List those things that you believe are the cause of the problem. Then take a step back and ask yourself, “Is there any other way I can look at this?” See if you can’t create at least 3-5 new, empowering views of that item and notice how you feel as you consider the new possibilities. Continue until you have worked your way through your list.

Now, hold up your two lists and consider how you feel when you focus on the negative and positive. Your beliefs affect your feelings, don’t they? Another interesting insight…

The bottom line is that YOU decide what you believe. You choose how you feel based on your beliefs. And the Universe will reflect your choices back to you. Why not choose happiness over despair; joy over sadness; abundance more than limitation? Whatever you choose, that is what you will see.

When you make that shift and begin to notice how your beliefs impact your perception, which then filters your world, it is life changing! And those shifts in perception – from pain and anger to joy and happiness – are all steps in the Heart Dance! 

That shift to empowerment also turns the old adage, “Seeing is believing” right on its head. It should really say, “Believing is seeing.”

Beyond Fear, Lies Freedom


Some wise person defined “fear” as “false evidence appearing real.” I have always felt that this definition did not go far Lightenough to capture the depths that fear can take you away from your authentic self.

Remember the last time you were immersed in fear? Was your heart racing and your breathing shallow? What was the most immediate thing on your mind – to get away or to make it stop?

Fear is the ego’s way to convince you to play small. The ego is that judgmental part of your mind that tells you everything you did wrong or why you will never be enough. Fear is the ego’s tool and it cuts like a knife, right through your self-esteem.

Fear can never destroy your authentic self. It just distracts you from it.

Your authentic self is always there, resting and waiting for your acknowledgement and acceptance. Which you can only do when you are no longer fearful.

When you glimpse the life you could have on the other side of fear – suddenly you become fearless.

If you knew you were 100% supported in everything you did, wouldn’t that make a difference in your choices?

When there is no fear, there is only freedom. To create a life you love.
