What will bring meaning to your life?

Take a moment and take stock of your life. Ask yourself, "What has brought me meaning thus far?"
Is it the house?
The new car?
The remodeled family room?
How about the past several visits to the shopping mall?

I'm sure it wouldn't take long to "rationalize" how much joy your external world has presented you. 

If you dig a little deeper you would soon realize it's all just "rational lies."

What if you took a deeper dive and had a conversation with your heart? What is the love that you are truly seeking?

Now as you swim in a new ocean of belief ask yourself, "What will bring meaning to my life?" The path to true happiness, inner peace and fulfillment will never emerge from the external world.

Deeper levels of meaning dwells within the light of your "inner being." It ascends from the stillness of your heart and breaks through the surface with arms thrust out wide. 

Breathe in the power of this moment that is your life. Soak in the wondrous power of your beating heart. 

Embrace new levels of gratitude for your soul's desire to awaken its spirit. Feel your inner light filling you up with new levels of love for yourself and everything around you.  

You've been gifted life and the exquisite opportunity to savour all that it has to offer.

What if you Remembered?

I can imagine the feeling when all of us remember our true calling in this world. 

There is something far greater that surrounds us. We only need to believe that we are all meant for more.

A lifetime ago, our deeper purpose was imprinted in our cells. This "light" has never left our "being."

You felt this "gift" wrapping you around the age of 6. Somewhere along your journey, you forgot your way. Your "true gifts" remain unwrapped and dwell in the shadows of unrealized possibility. 

Like most people, you've allowed the delusion of society to convince you of what is "real". You've lost sight of what truly matters. Your inner light will ignite your burning desire (your passion).

When you present your gift to others you are living your true purpose and you create the meaningful outcomes that your soul is seeking.

We are here for a finite moment in time. Our deeper reason for being is to help one another "Remember Why" we exist. 

This deeper calling to your light does not exist in the realm of doing and achieving more. It lives through a deeper love for yourself, for every living thing and everyone around you.

I can imagine the feeling of everyone returning to their light.
I cam imagine the feeling of Remembering Why.

X MARKS THE SPOT

What is the illusive treasure you are seeking? How will you know when you've arrived?


For the past several years you've sharpened your pick and polished your axe.  


Today, you may find yourself at a crossroad. You're asking yourself the BIGGER questions yet the answers are not coming to the surface. That's because they are buried deep within a place you've forgotten.  


Your long lost treasure is not found on a map. It's exists on the very spot you now stand.  It's your light and all knowing inner being. 


You are the treasure. You have the gift but you need to rip off the ribbons that have held you down from bursting into your greatness.  


The only map you need is the one that will re-connect your heart with the soul of the universe.   

It's this "unison of hearts" that will reveal the missing piece.  


The treasure you seek is your "way of being." This shiny jewel can't be found in the "doing."


We're all connected and you'll soon discover that we're all seeking the same thing, the answer to the only question that matters: "WHY am I here?"

The BIG Lie

We live in a world where we are completely run by a need for external validation.  I refer to this energy as our "outer being or demon."  It thrives on the need to be recognized, validated and edified.

Somewhere between the age of 6 and 11 we allow society to thrust its grip on us and tell us what is real.

It's all bullshit!  It's a big lie.  We're not helping anyone by continually falling deeper into this realm of "disillusionment."

The only thing that matters is helping one another return to the "light" of our true being. This is how we will eliminate fear and silence the demon within that permeates our fragile world.

We're not here to win more titles, earn millions and consume more natural resources. This accumulation of more continues to ravage our world and our spirit.

We are here to thrive as a human species and we're being tested now more than ever as to our level of contribution.  The question is, will we rise about our current way of being and help one another answer the only question that truly matters: "Why am I here?"

The big lie is that you allow others to tell you that you're not good enough or not doing enough. You allow yourself to listen to the "noise of the crowd" that you don't have a purpose and you can't live your true passion.

You allow yourself to be influenced by the masses instead of listening to your heart. You wake up doing the same thing over and over hoping and wishing for things to change.  This energy is not serving your higher self.

It's time to be true to yourself and honour your light.

The real truth is that inside of you lives and breathes a "fiery dragon", a spirit that is your burning passion. It has existed since the first breath you took. It desires to scorch the skies and play full out.

You are unique and one-of-a-kind. When you unleash your true light, the world will be a better place.

My recent autobiography titled "Influence" features 11 unique journey's of women inspiring change. It is an energy intended to inspire 11,000 new "Influencers" in the world.  It is not intended to feed ego's. It's sole purpose is to ignite your light so you to can become a person of influence.

The deeper why that drives my publications are that we all have a light that shines deep within. I believe in the light of "everyday people doing extraordinary things."

The truth that influences my inspiration is my need and desire to forge a new ROI for humanity. One where we collectively choose to Reach Out and Inspire others.

Allow your truth to set your spirit free so you can soar into the heavens and cast your true light upon us all.

Have you arrived?

We spend most of our lifetime wishing upon a shooting star and hoping for a better future.

We miss out on the celebration of our very existence, now and the lives we have touched. 

What is your treasure? Will you even be able to recognize it?

How will you know you've arrived? What form will it take?

Have you asked yourself what your heart truly desires? Does fulfillment and happiness rank up with the others?

What about becoming aware of the deeper reason for your existence?

I've often said the greatest gift we can present to another human being is to understand why we truly exist.

Perhaps "X" marks the spot on the very place you stand. You are the treasure.

Give into Love

What if you decided to release the energy that has not been serving your higher self:
- the fears,
- the past,
- the resentment,
- the failed attempts and the ones that let you down. 

What if you just gave into love. 

What if all of it was put into your path to help you remember who you were truly born to be.

What if the very thing you've been resisting was actually intended as the greatest catalyst for your life. 

What if God only sent you Angels from all walks of life helping you embrace your brighter light.  

What if you decided to channel all of your energy towards filling yourself and the soul of the universe with unconditional love.

What if you embraced the higher version of yourself.

Give into love and experience the World being Helped by You.

What is REAL?

I love this question. I've contemplated it ever since I was 6-years old. What is REAL and what is illusion?

The intention of this morning's #Why Time is to help you take stock of your life. See your life as a blank white canvass. Now think about your life and everything in it. The relationships. Where you live. Your possessions. The cars you drive. The money you earn. Your job...all of it.

Every conscious and unconscious thought throughout your journey influenced your choices. Whether you were aware of it or not, you filled the canvass of your life.

The question is: Is it the canvass your heart truly desired to create? Do you often feel as if you are living someone else's life?  Do you wonder how it filled up so quickly?

What if the REAL canvass, the true work of art is still inside of you waiting for your belief and brushstrokes. 

It's easy to believe that all this "physical stuff" around us is real. Since you can't take it with you, it does not define you, it never did.  Most of our lives are just the result of unconscious choices. We've unconsciously created a world that doesn't portray the "true picture" of the life we desire to live.

That creation is still buried deep within you, sealed within the container of your mind. 

Like most people, you might think you don't have a choice. You think too much time has passed you by. Then again what is time, really? 

You may stop yourself for not knowing the "how" your desired life will transpire. Nothing could be further from the truth. Today, decide what you want most, take powerful action and create it. 

Pick up the brush, crack open the unused can, dip in and start creating the unREALized masterpiece that is your life.

How much time do you really have?

It's easy to go through life thinking you have all the time in the world.  But have you ever stopped to really contemplate the deeper meaning surrounding time? 

What is time really?  

Is it a construct of our own minds? An illusion that we have manufactured? Does it control our very nature? Is it an energy that holds us back from truly breaking through the ceiling of our own complexity. 

As I reflect on the time I have spent on this earth I believe we are meant to define our 'true selves' by uncovering the hidden mysteries of our limitless universe.  

Once we decide the contribution we wish to make to the soul of the universe, time no longer becomes an obstacle but rather a vehicle for manifesting our greatest desires.   

What if we learned to let go of the past and all the energy that surrounds it.   

What if we released the need to force the future that hasn't even arrived.   

What I know for certain is that you are here NOW in this glorious time to decide who you wish to be and live out the remaining days of your life your way.

Life Lessons from IKEA.




"Decide what you want most. Take Action and go get it!"
~ Gerry Visca

I live with a vision to inspire 1 Million Why's in the world.  Imagine a world where everyone knows why they truly exist.
            As part of this vision I've been on a wondrous journey of simplifying all aspects of my one precious life. This 'radical' simplification started off as a 'deconstruction' of my current life.  Also known as the removal of the things that no longer serve my higher purpose. Here is what I have come to appreciate over my 48 years of existence on mother earth. Life has a tendency to take a hold of you and spin you around in all sorts of directions. 
            It's easy to lose your way when you are influenced by the 'noise' of the external world. I've always loved the definition of 'noise' as being 'unwanted sound.'
So, when you finally decide what you want most in life. How you want to live and what you want to experience before you choke on a mint, the non-essential starts to fall away. 
The 'deconstruction' process has kick-started a whole new philosophy not to mention kicking me in the ass. I refer to this new mantra as: 'Life. Simplified.'
            As an active contributor to the human race I often find myself observing human behaviour. This process of radical simplification included downsizing from our 4-storey Victorian villa to a quaint beach condo loft on the water front. 
            In creating this new 'simplified mindset' Angela (my life partner) and I decided to streamline our furniture. Think about the spaces that you spend most of your time in.  I've come to the realization that there are a few basic spaces that every human being requires: Live, Cook, Create, Rest and Reflect.

            IKEA seemed like the appropriate choice to satisfy the styling of these essential spaces.  If you truly want to observe the human condition then immerse yourself in an IKEA environment on a rainy Saturday afternoon. 
            I've often shared with audiences that IKEA is a superb model of retail innovation. Think about it. They get you to assemble the furniture.  It's simply brilliant. Not to mention they keep you captivated with the use of 50 cent hotdogs and $1 dollar ice cream cones.
            If you've ever found yourself navigating the IKEA showroom maze you may feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland desperately trying to make your way out.     
            There are 4 life lessons I've deduced from my recent IKEA travels that I would love to share with you. This experience has revealed some really great treasures. I've discovered that every opportunity can be seen as a powerful teaching if we choose to look at it that way. So, let's begin.
           
Life Lesson No.1: Stay on the path.
Traversing an IKEA store one will quickly observe that there is no 'linear path' to the end prize. There consists a series of openings and doorways to disenchanted lands inviting you to take an easier path to the end of the rainbow. 
            Within IKEA, these 'divergent gateways' are referred to as 'short cuts' to the promise land. When in actual fact this 'way finding' seems to loop you around in circles.  You may even find yourself back to the starting point. Along the way you will be titillated with shiny plastic containers of all shapes and sizes that you have no clue what purpose they serve. 
            The key in life is to stay on the path with an inner-knowing that eventually you will arrive at your intended destination.  Marvel at the wondrous journey that is your life. See every crossroad as an opportunity for you to choose what you wish to experience and how you want to live your one shiny life. 



Life Lesson No.2: Follow the Instructions.
I refer to this life lesson as 'modelling success.' Everything that you have a desire to create has been created by someone else. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. The key to avoiding years of falling down is to model others that have already paved the way. 
            Through a painful process I quickly discovered that tossing out the instructions carefully conceived by IKEA designers leads to a series of unfortunate events.  Not to mention a cornucopia of  'unused parts'. I found myself rationalizing (rational lies) that these 'unused parts' were simply extra pieces unconsciously added to my package. This may have temporarily satisfied my 'ego' until I witnessed the shiny new bunk bed collapsing as a result of the missing fasteners.
            No matter how daunting and overwhelming your journey may seem just breathe and take one step at a time. Follow the directions and soon you will behold your masterpiece. 

Life Lesson No.3: One tool is all you need! 
What is the 'one thing' that brings you tremendous joy? It's effortless for you and you could do it all day long. It's your joy, your bliss and it gets you leaping out of bed. I refer to it as your 'passion.'
            I appreciate how IKEA has simplified the process for it's fellow human furniture assemblers with the use of one tool.  They typically insert an 'Allen Key' within every package.  I love how this little metal device provides the right leverage to firmly secure all of your connections.
            As human beings we seem to define ourselves as human doings. One damn thing after another! We weren't built as multi-tasking super computers. Your true power stems in your ability to master the moment. I've come to appreciate our ability to define time. When we channel all of our love, passion and creative energy into the power of the moment we can achieve great things. It's about harnessing the one thing you are meant to ignite, the deeper reason of your existence. 
            You'll discover that this approach to simplifying the one essential thing will bring you a greater sense of peace and fulfillment. So what is your one thing?  Here is a clue. You knew what brought you joy as a child.  It's time for you to remember. 

Life Lesson No.4: Steer your own success.
IKEA shopping carts seem to have a mind of their own. No matter how hard you try to steer the damn cart it wants to move in the opposite direction. Every time I attempted to steer it I felt a bit like Harry Potter in a train station searching for the illusive platform 9 3/4.
            It's funny how IKEA shopping carts seem to navigate their way towards additional purchases. Before you know it, the 'one thing' you originally were searching for has magically expanded into 101 things that don't fit into your car.
            Similar in life, when we don't know what we want most and more importantly why, we find ourselves losing control and follow other people's paths. The key is to steer our own success by leading ourselves and pursing our bigger dream.
            Each human being was imprinted with a clearly defined purpose at the time of our birth. It's not random that you have been blessed with a set of unique skills that lights you up. Our role in this DIS-connection age is to Reach Out and Inspire others to help them discover the light that truly illuminates the way.
This is a new ROI that is worthy of creating.
