Happy New Year!

Tuesday Tips, NYE Edition: 10 Thought Direction Prompts to…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! If you haven't pre-paved 2014 yet, here are a few ideas to shape your year the way you want!

Doing

1. Pick your power words to direct the year.
Mine are CONNECT, OPPORTUNITY, and RHYTHM.

2. Find one thing to do every day of 2014.
I intend to record and share everything I eat.

3. Try oil pulling!
I've tried it and I like it! Another one of my resolutions is to swish around some coconut oil in my mouth every day of 2014.

4. Whatever you do, do it for you.
Imagine you are alone on a desert island. You can do whatever you want. What would you do with yourself, with your time? You might care a little less about things like weightloss or grades or Facebook. Every single time I use external motivation to accomplish something (mostly trying to impress girls obv), it bites me in the ass. No one cares about your weightloss. No one cares what your grades are. No one cares how many likes you get. So what do you care about? What would you do to enjoy life if there was no one to impress but yourself? What would do for your eyes only?

Thinking

5. Ask yourself, "What are you building in the New Year?"
Alexandra Franzen has a badass worksheet to get you pumped about your work in 2014. Here are my answers!

  • In 2014, I am building a bridge to the fifth dimension.
  • This building — my body of work — will include a few very helpful offerings for the world, including a bigger and better School of Life Design store, longer and stronger video meditations, positive thinking worksheets for every occasion, and a new book!
  • In order to build what I want to build, I’ll need to release / remove a few things from my world, including addictions.
  • Because what I really want to be known for is being the leader of the mind-as-personal-computer revolution.
  • When things start to feel overwhelming, I will keep it simple by reminding myself that my job is simply to breathe.
  • And by this time next year, I will be SO proud to have completed ONE big thing, which is a TAROT DECK!
  • And THAT is my plan for 2014.

6. Try this mantra: "I'm having a good dream!"
I got this idea from The Fifth Agreement. From Ruiz's perspective, we're all dreaming. When people are mean or do something you don't like, just say to yourself, "They're just having a bad dream." But say to YOURself, "I'm having a good dream!" And you will be!

7. Fill out a Fresh Start worksheet.
The Fresh Start Magician's Tool is a perfect way to start a new chapter of your life. Place your intentions and let go of the past.

Feeling

8. List three compliments you want to receive this year that would just make you feel OVER THE MOON.
I wouldn't mind hearing these! "Your hoop dance is outta this world! Your work cured me of my addictions! Holy shit you have lost so much weight!"

9. Literally embrace the moment.
They say if you just make peace with what is, what you want will come and what you don't want will fade away. So let's try hugging our reality! Everything you look at, give it a little telepathic hug. Spread the love and the moment will embrace you right back.

Being

10. Ask yourself what you want to be in 2014.
In 2014, I will be attuned to the rhythm of life.

Have a beautiful new year my friends! Thanks for being part of my life!

Dear Jessica,
It's all coming your way. You are doing such a good job! You are doing everything right! Nothing can stop you! You are evolving and lightening up and becoming one! You are love! You are loved! You are loving!

Let life be good to you. Let life bring you gifts. Let yourself be here now. Let yourself have fun!

Allow well being to flow through you, right now. Allow yourself to feel the flow. Allow the rhythm to pick you up.

The rhythm is inside of you. The rhythm is you. You are already one with that which you want to be. You are already perfect. You are already here.

Daily Meditation – A New You

Download the meditation audio on Bandcamp!

Breathe in and raise your vibration!
Breathe out and release your resistance.

Breathe in and raise your vibration!
Breathe out and release your resistance.

Relax. Quiet your mind. Know that you can switch to the reality you prefer at any time. You can instantly choose to switch your perspective and change your whole life. What is the perspective you want? How do you want to view your reality?

Breathe in and be here now.
Breathe out and relax.

Embrace your reality. Say yes to your reality. Say yes to the synchronicities happening at this second.

You can switch your perspective by letting your thoughts go, right now. Right now you can choose a clean slate. You can choose to start all over. You can choose to be a new you.

Breathe in and be nice to yourself.
Breathe out and be nice to your reality.

Let yourself be kind. Let yourself embrace this moment. Let yourself see life the way you want to see life.

Breathe in and let it be easy.
Breathe out and let the flow do it.

You can choose peace. You can choose to empty your mind and let the flow through.

Breathe in and smile!
Breathe out and let go.

Let go of your anger. Let go of your limiting beliefs. Let go of your judgements. There is only right now. You can step away from your mind and into the present moment. In this present moment everything is perfect and in its place. Everything is fun and there's nothing to worry about. You can make the choice right now, to let the flow through.

Breathe in and be still.
Breathe out and be still.

Through your stillness, you can connect to source energy. With silence, you can talk. You can talk to god or the universe or life, whatever you want to call it. You can let your thoughts go. You can be at peace right now.

Breathe in and choose stillness.
Breathe out and feel the magick that comes with the stillness.

Life is so much deeper and more exciting than your mind wants you to believe. Clear away all the clutter, all your resistance, and you'll be left with heaven. Which is where you are right now.

Grateful to be here. Grateful to be leaning into the flow. Grateful to feel good. Grateful for my wife. Grateful to be waking up. Grateful to be becoming more powerful. Grateful to be going beyond my usual upper limits.

Grateful to be breathing consciously. Grateful to be counting! Grateful to feel good in my body. Grateful to be back to my pal. Grateful to have everything I need right now in this moment.

Grateful to be breathing slowly and deeply. Grateful to be choosing focus. Grateful to be training my attention. Grateful to be on the way up.

Grateful to relax and remember to enjoy the contrast.

Grateful to learn new things every day. Grateful to feel like I'm in another dimension. Grateful for nice headphones. Grateful to be at peace with what is. Grateful to love my home.

Grateful it's all working out for me.

Grateful to feel healthy and strong and fit. Grateful to feel loved and cared for. Grateful to feel relaxed and peaceful.

Grateful to be tuning my vibration. Grateful to be getting better at this.

Grateful for the flow. Grateful for the contrast that helps me ask. Grateful to know what I want. Grateful to allow it to come.

Grateful to feel like writing. Grateful to feel the flow. Grateful to let my thoughts go. Grateful to have new tools. Grateful to find old tools that still work.

Grateful to be surrounded by solutions. Grateful for synchronicity. Grateful to trust the moment. Grateful to know I am loved and cared for.

Grateful to be in control of my attention. Grateful I can take myself less seriously. Grateful I can lighten up whenever I want!




Wouldn't it be nice to have a really fun night? Wouldn't it be nice to allow myself to feel better? Wouldn't it be nice to be welcomed to the next level? Wouldn't it be nice to find positive ways to spend my time?

Wouldn't it be nice to hear my fav song? Wouldn't it be nice to let go? Wouldn't it be nice to find new music?

Wouldn't it be nice to feel inspired? Wouldn't it be nice to feel like working on my planner?

Wouldn't it be nice to train my attention in new ways? Wouldn't it be nice to feel like:

  • Astrojax New Year's (celebration! ease! flow! physically feeling the flow! life just got so deep I got nauseous!)
  • Cloudy sky New Year's (connecting with someone else while looking at the vast unknown, communion, telepathy)
  • Birthday relief (I am loved! Life is giving me so many gifts right now! Letting go!)
  • Good Friday (fuck everything, let's have fun! let's do hoodrat shit with our friends!)
  • High school meditation magick (I know what I'm doing, I know my power, I'm focused and I am in control)



I love it when I let myself enjoy the contrast. I love it when I find the exact feelings I want to feel. I love it when I hear the universe. I love it when good music plays. I love it when I get notes from my higher self. I love it when I slow down and remember to connect to my spirit. I love it when I focus on the unseen. I love it when I remember I'm a star child.

I love it when I get to have a relaxing night creating with my wife. I love it when I get what I want. I love it when I do what I say I'm going to do. I love it when I'm honest and authentic. I love it when I have major triumphs and flawless victories.

I love it when I write myself into feeling good. I love it when I run and meditate and eat kale. I love it when I push past boredom and addiction to LIFE, real thriving LIFE!

I love it when I get what I want so fast. I love it when I can feel myself let go and begin to receive immediately. I love it when I let myself evolve and level up. I love it when i appreciate my contrast.

I love it when I maintain my focus. I love it when I train my attention. I love it when I let my worries go. I love it when I do my best. I love it when I'm nice to myself.

I love it when Kelly takes such good care of our home! I love it when I feel appreciative. I love it when I make peace with what is. I love it when I do the work to feel good on my own.

I love it when I allow myself to stop thinking. I love it when I go back to silent counting and it works so well!

I love it when I switch to the reality I prefer.

I'm switching to the reality I prefer. In the reality I prefer, I am tripping my balls off. I am connected to source. I am in the flow. I am empty blank white canvas. I am appreciating my creation. I am appreciative of life. I am thriving.

In the reality I prefer I remember my magick, I remember that this is my dream. In the reality I prefer I am an adventurer and explorer of consciousness. I am evolution, I am planetary shift. I am light. I am love.

In the reality I prefer, I am saving the world. In the reality I prefer, I am in love with myself. In the reality I prefer, I am coming up for air and finding a beautiful city and I can breathe so clearly and I am swimming through life.

In the reality I prefer I go so slowly, basking and loving and letting life move me. I am letting life live me. I am at peace, but I feel so blissful. I am excited by everything that comes my way. I see the magick of life. I am the magick of life.

Be the Miracle

Wouldn't it be nice to have the best day of my life? Wouldn't it be nice to get this planner done? Wouldn't it be nice to feel enthusiastic and excited? Wouldn't it be nice to feel thrilled about my work? Wouldn't it be nice to be inspired to take on a new big project like a website redesign?

Wouldn't it be nice to relax and trust the flow? Wouldn't it be nice to let it unfold? Wouldn't it be nice to let it all come to me?

Wouldn't it be nice to let myself enjoy life today? Wouldn't it be nice to think less? Wouldn't it be nice to breathe consciously today?

Wouldn't it be nice to have fun and laugh? Wouldn't it be nice to not get involved? Wouldn't it be nice to make my best work?

Wouldn't it be nice to stop tempting myself? Wouldn't it be nice to break bad habits? Wouldn't it be nice to let go of the bullshit that doesn't serve me? Wouldn't it be nice to NOT GIVE A FUCK?!

Wouldn't it be nice to trust the process and observe?




I love it when I focus. I love it when I write right away. I love it when I feel enthusiastic about my work. I love it when I feel good about myself. I love it when I feel good about life. I love it when I feel excited and uplifted!

I love it when I feel good. I love it when I trust. I love it when I stop thinking. I love it when I breathe consciously. I love it when I do the work.

I love it when I train my attention. I love it when I want to run. I love it when I want to exercise. I love it when I want to do healthy things.

I love it when I am nice to myself. I love it when I relax. I love it when I trust the flow.




What do you want?
To be my reason for feeling good. To get my head above water. To feel like I'm on addy. To either permanently let go of pizza, vodka and addy or let myself have it. To be in control of my attention. To have FUN. To not give a FUCK. To be cool. To connect with my friends. To focus and organize. To feel good about my work. To let it be easy. To let it come to me. To stop thinking!

Daily Meditation – Simplify

Download the meditation audio on Bandcamp!

Breathe in and raise your vibration!
Breathe out and release your resistance.

Breathe in and raise your vibration!
Breathe out and release your resistance.

Today let's simplify. What is it that you truly need? What is it that you truly want? What will it take for you to feel good today?

Breathe in and know the answer is right here.
Breathe out and relax.

The answer is your breath. You have complete control over your breath. By controlling your breath, by aligning with your breath, your thoughts will follow. You don't have to fight against your thoughts or your emotions. You can take matters into your own hands.

Breathe in deeply.
Breathe out deeply.

With every breath, imagine infinite intelligence, unconditional love flowing into your body. WIth every exhalation, imagine releasing your resistance. Releasing poison, toxins, everything you don't need. Releasing anger, frustration, sadness. You can let it go, just like you wash something down the sink or the toilet. Your breath can help you let go of everything.

Breathe in and be at peace.
Breathe out and relax.

Imagine measuring your life in breaths instead of years. Lengthen your lifespan right now. Breathe in deeply and slowly, calmly and consciously.

Breathe in and focus on your health.
Breathe out and focus on how much lighter you feel already.

Let your breath carry you today. Let your breath bring you fresh intentions for the new year.

Breathe in and know how simple it is.
Breathe out and forget about everything else but your breath.

Forget about your diet, your goals. Forget about everything else but your breath today.

Breathe in and feel yourself opening up!
Breathe out and let your breath give you the answers.

You can choose peace. You can choose health, you can choose joy and you can choose love right now. Every breath in is god's love, life's love, source energy's love. Every breath is the release and the relief that you've been looking for.

Breathe in and simplify.
Breathe out and be aware.

You are the breather. You are the creator. You are in control.

My Fitness Pal

Why I Post My Calories on Instagram

My Fitness Pal

I used to be bulimic. I would eat a pizza and some ice cream and maybe some snack cakes and then I'd puke it back up. On the surface it was fun and relaxing, but I always knew it wasn't really a sustainable way to deal with life.

I stopped barfing when Kelly moved in with me, nearly 6 years ago. But food is still one of my drugs of choice, so when I feel stressed or sad or don't want to deal with my life, I overeat.

I always start counting my calories under the guise of weightloss (it's the only thing I've ever found that works), but really I'm just budgeting instead of being unconscious.

After years of unconsciously spending credit, I went broke and had to start budgeting. The same thing happens with food--I go into calorie debt and start gaining weight.

Counting calories helps me know when to stop eating so I don't use food to deal with my emotions. Once I've had my budget for the day, I have to find some other way to feel good.

Even when I'm counting calories using MyFitnessPal, it can still be hard to keep it together. I have a tendency to count my calories all day, but then nightfall hits and I hit the liquor store. The liquor store invariably leads to drunken food purchases, which is a very annoying pattern.

So I post my little screen grabs on Instagram, because it keeps me from overeating and having to post an embarrassing calorie count. The fact that I get embarrassed by what I eat is a whole different therapy session in itself, but for now I'm doing this because it works.

I intend to keep this practice up for every day of 2014, so make your account-following plans accordingly. I know that I would be absolutely riveted by a regular calorie-intake update from any of my friends, so I hope I can provide you the same enjoyment!

Some caveats:

  • I don't usually bother to find exact foods or brands in the app, so sometimes it will say I had 3 tomato slices from Subway or a Popeyes mashed potatoes even though I have never eaten there before.
  • Sometimes if I simply must drink or snack at night, I put those foods as breakfast for the next day. That's why you may have seen vodka and pizza for breakfast before...
  • I still get my feelings hurt when people comment on my eating habits, but the benefits of perceived public scrutiny outweigh the actual feedback I get. Please don't judge me. I'm doing my best.
