The tasks and worries of this world can pull us from a place of peace: our to-do lists are rarely completed, our fear of failure encourages us to take on more and more, and our unknown future keeps us on edge. To cope, we work harder, faster, in hopes of getting “on top of things.” In hopes of succeeding. Without meaning or a clear sense of purpose, life can lose its appeal and leave us feeling empty.

The problem is not life, but how we’re choosing to live it… we are disconnected from our true self. Separated from our life’s TRU adventure. We are running our lives based on the instructions of the left brain, rather than the intended leader in the right brain, our spirit. Left brain dialogue focuses on fear and staying safe. While the right brain longs for adventure, your adventure, to materialize.

To tap into that magical resource, we must learn to connect and stay connected. We must listen to our spirit so it can tell us where to go and what to do. You see, the spirit holds our own personal map; it will guide us if we seek its help. We were never intended to live on autopilot. We were meant to live the life of our dreams. Specifically, doing the things you see in your dreams.

So, how to connect? We start by cleaning house. Removing the clutter of thoughts in the mind so we can hear the still, soft voice within. The process of connecting begins here, and there are many ways to do it. I’ve made a list of more than 50 ways. I want to share them with you: either sign up for my mailing list or download directly…

My personal favorite (and the one I encourage all my clients to do) is journaling. The simple process of writing brings the mind to focus all its attention to the here and now, on only one thing. Then, the mind calms itself. To practice, get a piece of paper and begin free writing, or “brain dumping” as Julia Cameron of The Artist’s Way calls it. Simply listen to the thoughts in your head and write them down. Without judgment. Without censorship. Write exactly what you hear. Through this process, earthly concerns are removed and spiritual wisdom can come in. Keep writing! Start with 5 minutes a day, and make it a part of your routine. Increase your time when inspired.

Or, if you prefer, pick another connection method from the list. Something that appeals to you. Experiment. Find your favorites! The more time you spend with your spirit, the stronger the relationship will become. And the more you will know The Real You. And how to Live TRU.
