Today’s Mindful Moment

How Beliefs Shape Our Identities

Many great philosophers propose that human beings become what they believe. In other words, a person’s beliefs helps shape their identities as well as what they feel to be true about themselves. In many cases, however, people aren’t sure what their beliefs are, because many are hidden and unconscious; or they change as a result of their life experiences.

As a medical practioner, Dr. Chopra (2013) suggests that even though beliefs people hold about themselves may be either mild mannered or extremely passionate, those beliefs still contribute to who we they are and the individual they evolve into. He further states that people who become more self-aware, are naturally more mindful individuals. As a result, their choices and actions are made with a greater clarity because they comprehend how their beliefs helped them to evolve and form their identities (Chopra, 2013). To sum up, in order to truly understand ourselves, we should examine our beliefs more closely throught the lens of self-awareness.

Well friends, that’s a wrap for this week. I hope you have been enjoying our Summer Break Mindful Moments series. Until next time … focus on developing your self-awareness skills and see if it helps enhance your leadership abilities!

Summer Break and Becoming What We Believe …

Published June 14, 2016 by Mayrbear's Lair

Today’s Mindful Moment

Beliefs are Dynamic and Alive!

At the Chopra Meditation Center, patrons are asked to ponder the following concept: “every person’s perceptions and beliefs are always in motion, constantly influencing their thoughts, feelings, and behavior.” In addition, the counselors reveal that as individuals, our unconscious beliefs always have an effect on us as well. However, in order to use the power of belief to our greatest benefit, they disclose that we must first become self-aware. By doing so, we are better able to align our beliefs with our deepest spiritual aspirations. Then, using techniques like self-reflection, prayer and meditation, we can begin to see our beliefs manifest as greater love, purpose, and we will also start to experience a true sense of meaning in our lives (Chopra, 2013).

For today’s mindful moment exercise, take a moment to recall a scenario where the thoughts and beliefs of others influenced your perceptions. Next, envision a new scenario, one that is a reflection of your highest potential in that circumstance. Then, consider the following questions, “What choices have I been making in this situation? What new actions can I take from this moment forward that will help me achieve my new goal?”

That’s it for today’s summer break mindful moment exercise. Until next time … keep working on your leadership skills!

Summer Break and the Source of All Abundance

A Mindful Moment

For today’s summer break mindful moment exercise, let’s ponder the following question, What do we feel we need more of in our lives? Next, write down the answer(s) and go back to it throughout the day. According to author Deepak Chopra, the purpose of this exercise is to allow the answer(s) to help us form a clear intention of whatever it is we desire. Then, we are in a better position to plant the seed of this intention into what he identifies as the fertile soil of the unified field and allow the positive flow of the universe to take care of the details (Chopra, 2014).

That’s it for this week’s summer break mindful moments. Until next time … let’s keep our thoughts focused on existing in a realm that consists of unbounded creativity.

Summer Break and the Reality of Abundance

Published June 7, 2016 by Mayrbear's Lair

A Mindful Moment

This week we are launching a new Mindful Moment summer break series. We begin by taking a closer look at the reality of abundance. World renown author and alternative medicine pioneer, Dr. Deepak Chopra postulates, that in order to experience the reality of abundance in our lives, we can begin by taking time to witness examples of abundance within and all around us. He suggests that by creating a list and referring to it throughout our day, that within no time, we will start to see the myriad of riches the universe presents in every moment, and begin to experience true abundance consciousness (Chopra, 2014).

That’s it for now. In the meantime, for today’s summer break mindful moment exercise, let’s remember to observe the abundance that surrounds us.

Until next time …
