Shakti Gawain Quotes 832468

The way to a beautiful, strong, healthy body is to start by trusting yourself right now. Let go of the struggle and surrender to your body's needs. Your intuition will tell you what to eat. It may direct you to exercise vigorously, in which case you'll enjoy it, or it may tell you to slow down and rest. It may tell you to stay in bed all day, or it may tell you to get up early. There are no rigid rules. Your body knows perfectly well what's good for it. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1466451

Creative power has to filter through our beliefs, attitudes, emotions, and habits. The more negative and constricted our beliefs and patterns are, the more they block the creative energy. Most people hope that by ignoring negativity, it will go away, but the reverse is actually true. Through recognizing, acknowledging, and experiencing it, the blocked energy can be released. You are then free to replace it with positive beliefs and attitudes. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 954512

That has been my personal relationship with God-a connection with the powerful, loving, wise energy in all of us, in all creation. It is the life force itself. We can all have contact with it each moment in our lives, but it takes commitment and practice. We must be willing to move through all our deepest fears, doubts, and misunderstandings. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 623314

We have been accustomed to thinking that we have to get something from outside us in order to be happy, but in truth it works the other way: we must learn to contact our inner source of happiness and satisfaction and flow it outward to share with others-not because it is virtuous to do so, but because it really feels good. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1568583

There is a natural rhythm to the active and receptive energies within us. At times our energy is strong and outgoing - it is time to pursue our goals, take risks, get things accomplished. At other times, our energy is quiet and sensitive, and we need to take time to nurture ourselves, relax, and just 'be' for a while. As we trust and follow this rhythm, we attract everything we need and create everything we truly desire. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1037561

Each one of us has all the wisdom and knowledge we ever need right within us. It is available to us through our intuitive mind, which is our connection with universal intelligence. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1018861

The best way I have found to follow my true desires is to pay attention to my intuitive sense. We all have great wisdom within us, a part of us that knows exactly what we need at every moment. We are born with this intuitive sense, but most of us are quickly taught to distrust and ignore it. We have to relearn something that should come naturally. Fortunately, it's not too difficult; it just takes some practice. — Shakti Gawain

Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically, if we are willing to listen to them. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1032685

We avoid the things that we're afraid of because we think there will be dire consequences if we confront them. But the truly dire consequences in our lives come from avoiding things that we need to learn about or discover. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1608777

Every time you have a desire, in a certain sense you have a goal, something you would like to be, do, or have. Some desires are merely passing fancies, but others stay with us and go deeper.

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1727778

A painful time in our life is what I call a healing crisis. We are letting go of something old and opening to something new. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1164613

The more we have given to ourselves, the more we have to give to others. When we find that place within ourselves that is giving, we begin to create an outward flow. Giving to others comes not from a sense of sacrifice, self-righteousness, or spirituality, but for the pure pleasure of it, because it's fun. Giving can only come from a full, loving space. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1099304

Shakti Gawain Quotes 295655

By viewing our relationships with friends, family, and co-workers as mirrors, as teachers - we see that they are reflecting back to us exactly what we most need to learn. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 116614

Very seldom do we receive any support for trusting ourselves, listening to our own sense of inner truth, and expressing ourselves in a direct and honest way. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 347741

Every creative genius has been a channel. Every masterwork has been created through the channeling process. Great works are not created by the personality alone. They arise from a deep inspiration on the universal level, and are then expressed and brought into form through the individual personality. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1251056

Not being in touch with your vulnerability and not learning to own it and accept it and be comfortable with it leaves you in a position where you're liable to look at and judge other people for being vulnerable because they're reflecting that part of yourself that you're not comfortable with. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 623384

Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it's important to pause every now and then to appreciate all that we have, on every level. We need to literally 'count our blessings,' give thanks for them, allow ourselves to enjoy them, and relish the experience of prosperity we already have. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 120095

We all have within us a deep sense of what we need, and what is right and true for us. To access this we need to pay attention to our feelings and our intuition.

Even if we make mistakes, we must do this in order to learn and grow. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 125081

Our primary relationship is really with ourselves. Our relationships with other people constantly reflect exactly where we are in the process. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 192254

If you are feeling tired or ill, rest. Your body will always want rest and ease if it's sick. When you become quiet, ask your body what you need to do in order to heal yourself. Your body may tell you to change certain habits, eat more wholesome food, express some feelings, quit your job, see a doctor, or it may have some other message for you, but there is always an answer available to you. The key is to ask and then listen honestly for a response. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 194396

Shakti Gawain Quotes 240129

We may overcompensate for our feelings of powerlessness by attempting to control and manipulate other people and our environment. Or we may eventually burst forth with uncontrolled rage that is highly exaggerated and distorted by its long suppression. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 298186

The very actions themselves can be a meditation. For me, walking is certainly a meditation if I walk for awhile. First my mind is busy and I'm thinking about different things and after a while that starts to fall away and I start to become very present in the moment. And that feeling of being present in the moment is being. That's when we know we're connecting with being energy. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 335574

Personal healing on all levels - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual comes when we get in touch with our disowned energies ... Through integrating all aspects of ourselves, we become whole. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 384865

In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 432676

Work and play can be the same. When you are following your energy and doing what you want to do all the time, the distinction between work and play dissolves. Work is no longer what you have to do, and play what you want to do. When you are doing what you love, you may work harder and produce more than ever before, because you are having fun. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 498766

It isn't necessary to be perfect to be a channel for the universe. You just have to be real- be yourself. The more real, honest, and spontaneous you are, the more freely the creative force can flow through you. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 549541

An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 568970

Receiving and giving are opposite energies that are inextricably linked together in the natural flow of life, like inhaling and exhaling. If one aspect of that cycle doesn't function, the entire cycle ceases to function and the life force cannot move freely. If you can't inhale, you will soon have nothing to exhale, and before long, your body will be unable to continue living. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 576822

People with little money seldom realize that people who have a lot of money are also frightened ... If security is based on having money, it doesn't matter whether you have a little or a lot, you're going to be afraid. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 710301

It does not always help to analyze and think about problems with your rational mind. Sometimes it is far more effective to turn to your inner self, to ask the universe for help. Simply sit quietly. Take a few deep breaths and focus your awareness within. Ask your wise inner self, either silently or aloud, for guidance or help in understanding the message. As you get a sense of what feels right, act on this feeling. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 733732

Shakti Gawain Quotes 837576

Shakti Gawain Quotes 837792

Many times people can access that being stage more fully and more easily if at first you are actually doing something. If you run, or dance, or do something kind of vigorous, and let the energy release, then sometimes it's easier to sit or lie down and then feel at ease and rest and be quiet and move inside. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 976463

Your intuition is not the same thing as your mind. In fact, intuition is really the opposite of your mind - and you need to use BOTH in living your day-to-day life. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 979629

The people we are in relationships with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1050421

You create your opportunities by asking for them. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1087607

If you are trying to appear calm and collected on the outside when actually you are feeling upset and angry, your children may mirror this to you by becoming wild and disruptive. While you are trying to maintain control, they pick up the chaotic energy inside of you and reflect it in their behavior. If you express directly what you are feeling, without trying to cover it up, they will usually calm down. They feel comfortable with the truth, the congruity between your feelings and your words. This is true of other relationships as well. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1118107

Every moment presents a new opportunity and a new decision. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1131906

When I wrote Living in the Light, I wanted to share about how I live my own life and to encourage people to tap into their own inner wisdom. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1181546

As long as we focus on the outside, there will always be that empty, hungry, lost place inside that needs to be filled. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1218400

Be willing to take some risks in the areas of work and money. If we do only what we think we should do in order to make money and be secure, we won't listen to the intuitive voice that tells us to try something new, to be more creative, or to move on to the next step on our path. When we listen to our intuition and take some risks, we are not alone. The universe will support us and reward us for taking risks on its behalf! — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1242582

Notice what happens when you doubt, suppress, or act contrary to your feelings. You will observe decreased energy, powerless or helpless feelings, and physical or emotional pain. Now notice what happens when you follow your intuitive feelings. Usually the result is increased energy and power and a sense of natural flow. When you're at one with yourself, the world feels peaceful, exciting, and magical. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1253609

My willingness to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1275120

Since money is energy, our financial affairs tend to reflect how our life energy is moving. When your creative energy is flowing freely, often your finances are as well. If your energy is blocked, your money does too. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1297626

Imagining what you want as if it already exists opens the door to letting it happen. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1318139

The universe will pay you to be yourself and do what you really love. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1329251

There is a wise being living inside of you. It is your intuitive self. Focus your awareness into a deep place in your body, a place where your "gut feelings" reside. You can communicate with it by silently talking to it, making requests, or asking questions. Then relax, don't think too hard with your mind, and be open to receiving answers. They are usually very simple and relate to the present moment, not the past or the future, and they feel right. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1358992

When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1365743

I think in the Western world we have gotten overly identified with doing, and we've kind of forgotten about the art of being. And we don't see value in it; we think that if you're not doing something all of the time, being very active and producing something, then you're sort of wasting your time. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1370285

The most powerful thing you can do to change the world is to change your own beliefs about the nature of life, people, and reality to something more positive ... and begin to act accordingly. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1421863

Your intuition will tell you where you need to go; it will connect you with people you should meet; it will guide you toward work that is meaningful for you - work that brings you joy, work that feels right for you. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1446866

In the Western world there isn't much value given to the necessity for just being quiet. And just resting, and just being, without a focus or a goal. At least a certain amount in our lives - we don't need to do half and half; it's okay if we're doing a lot of doing, we just need some being mixed in. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1573253

People who really want to be in a relationship are IN one. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1578280

By learning to contact, listen to, and act on our intuition, we can directly connect to the higher power of the universe and allow it to become our guiding force. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1707130

As we begin to love and appreciate ourselves as we are, our channels open and we access the infinite vitality of life force. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1758124

Freedom and relationship are polar opposites - they both exist on the same continuum. You DO want a relationship - and you DO want freedom - what you really want is BALANCE, you want wholeness. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1783262

My life has been dedicated to my growth and evolution as a conscious being ... becoming more aware of all that was taking place within me and around me; how my inner world affected my outer world and vice versa. I realized that the more awareness I have, the more choice I have in how I create or respond to the circumstances of my life. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1783622

The key point to understand is that prosperity is an internal experience, not an external state, and it is an experience that is not tied to having a certain amount of money. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1825596

Individually and collectively, we are shifting from a position of fear into surrender and trust of the intuitive. The power of the feminine energy is on the rise in our world. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1829403

If we look honestly at our relationships, we can see so much about how we have created them. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1835628

As I learn to love myself, I recieve the love I desire from others. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1868829

When we create something, we always create it first in a thought form. If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations, and events which conform to our positive expectations. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1895356

We always attract into our lives whatever we think about most, believe in most strongly, expect on the deepest level, and imagine most vividly. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1897687

There is no separation between us and God-we are divine expressions of the creative principle ... there can be no real lack or scarcity; there is nothing we have to try to achieve or attract; we contain the potential for everything within us. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1924639

Through lovingly embracing the full range of our experience- human and divine- we can heal the split that existed between the spirit and the form, in ourselves individually and in the whole world. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1931989

The disowned parts of ourselves are what get in the way of us having the relationships we long for, the careers we don't know how to create, and the goals we want to achieve. It is by getting in touch with ALL the parts of ourselves - by having a gentle dialogue with all the "selves" we have inside - that we integrate them into a more comfortable, peaceful way of being with ourselves. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1946334

Mind and intuition are at opposite ends of the same continuum and our goal is to strike a healthy balance between the two. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 1973314

Practice following your intuition in everyday things, trusting your gut feelings moment by moment and acting on them as best you can. As you learn to trust yourself in smaller matters, you will build power and confidence to take bigger risks and deal with the larger issues in your life successfully. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2025815

The body is our primary feedback mechanism which can show us what is and isn't working about our ways of thinking, expressing, and living. As we live our truth more fully and freely, our body grows healthier, stronger, and more beautiful. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2038236

As you learn to consciously observe the transformation process, you will watch yourself repeating a lot of old patterns long after you seemingly know better. Spiritually and intellectually, you realize there is another way, but emotionally you are still clinging to the old habits. This is a difficult time. Try to be patient and compassionate with yourself. When you recognize the futility of an old pattern so clearly, it's about to change! A short time later, you will suddenly begin to respond differently, in a more positive way. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2141357

I think that everything in the world around us is a reflection of what is going on inside of us. So each of us as an individual creates a life - we draw to us certain people and events and circumstances that reflect what's going on inside of us, so we can literally look at our life and see a mirror of our own consciousness. And if that's true on an individual level, it's also true that what's going on in the world in a bigger way is a reflection of the collective consciousness. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2186803

We, as spiritual beings, created the physical world as a place to learn. It's our school, our playground, our artist's studio. I beleive that we're here to master the process of creation - to learn how to consciously channel the creative energy of spirit into physical form. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2193251

We are attracted to people who express the qualities we deny or repress in ourselves. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2197261

We shouldn't ignore any guidance that comes from the mind - we should listen to our minds AND balance mental messages with intuitive messages. We need both to navigate our way through life. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2239625

Spiritual healing occurs as we begin to consciously reconnect with our essential being - the wise, loving, powerful, creative entity that we are at our core. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2256196

We have to get good at being with ourselves before we can hope to be good at being in relationships with others. — Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain Quotes 2269057

We each have an infinite supply of love and happiness within us. We have been accustomed to thinking that we have to get something from outside of us in order to be happy, but in truth it works the other way: We must learn to contact our inner source of happiness and satisfaction and flow it outward to share with others - not because it is virtuous to do so, but because it feels really good! Once we tune into it we just naturally want to share it because that is the essential nature of love, and we are all loving beings. — Shakti Gawain
