Victim or Creator?

 

Connect with Julianna

Hi it’s Julianna Lyddon here and I have a couple of concepts that I want to throw your way. These concepts have been helpful for not only my clients when I bring them up, but for my students. I teach incoming freshman. Also its great to use with your employees. Its wonderful to use with your children and again these are fairly easy or simplistic as I say, but they are concepts that we don’t always think about.

So when I throw the word victim out there, what comes to mind? What do you think about? Because the individual that acts as the victim, is that person that likes to blame everybody else. That doesn’t want to take responsibility. That doesn’t like to be held accountable. It was her fault. It was his fault. The teacher just doesn’t like me. My boss doesn’t understand me. Right? There’s always an excuse. We know these individuals. Maybe there’s been a time in your life where you have been that individual. Right? Okay so when I throw this other word out there, the word creator, what comes to mind when you think about that? Well when we are the creator, we are the individual that sees opportunity everywhere.

Are you thinking about moving in together or getting married?

Hi its Julianna Lyddon here and so today I want to talk about something that came up my classroom. I teach college kids, incoming freshmen in Arizona and today we were talking a little bit about habits and how we can stop behaviors before they become habitual and having that real awareness of what a habit is and how long it takes a habit to be actually formed and really getting in there and making that unnecessary shift.

Some of the kids brought up….. we have such great discussions …and some of them brought up this concept of relationships and marriages and how complicated that can be when two people have very specific habits. And how they come together in a relationship and how it can be extra difficult at eradicating or even really making the shift that’s very necessary so then the conversation kinda parlayed into someone asking if I believe in premarital counseling and so we had a discussion about that and I absolutely think that if individuals would go to see someone before they get married or even moved in together more marriages would be salvaged… would be saved.

Are You the Participant or the Observer?

Are you the Particpant or the Observer

 

Are you the participant in your life or the observer? There is a big difference! When we are the observer, it’s as if we are watching our lives go by. We react to what is happening to us, hoping it changes and feeling a bit hopeless about what is happening. The role of the participant is quite different. In this case, you are actively involved in every aspect of your life. You work at co-creating your destiny. This doesn’t mean you won’t ever get stuck, of course you will, it’s also part of the human experience. The difference here is twofold….the participant is AWARE and the observer is less AWARE. 

The participant looks at his stuck-ness as an opportunity to learn and transform. When in this mindset, it’s easier to manifest our dreams and everyday situations. The participant recognizes that he has a choice….he can partake in creating his own destiny or simply watch it unfold before him at the hands of others.

Do you believe you have the ability to bring your dreams to fruition? Click To Tweet

You do, but many of us don’t fully take ownership of our innate abilities to create what we want.

How do you begin? It starts with something called INTENTION. When we focus our thoughts and energy and get clear with what we want….that is intention. Using the mind and body to do this is key. We must enlist all of our senses and use our IMAGINATION. When intention and imagination are used in tandem, it is then that we begin the process toward becoming the participant of our lives. So to take the first step, next time you feel stuck, stop and ask yourself, “how have I been the observer instead of the participant in my life?” 

Feel free to contact me for more information about manifesting your dreams!

I am thinking about something!!!!

I want to share something about our thoughts. We need to know how powerful our thoughts are. And when I say that, you may be saying, I know… but you really may not know! They really really are powerful. I do a workshop on imagination and how powerful it is when we really tap into that place. I don’t think people realize that thoughts really are powerful.

We see those quotes on facebook and elsewhere and as cliché as it sounds those are out there and people have known this since the beginning of time that thoughts are energy and what we are thinking absolutely permeates our physical body and even more importantly funnels into our world. And it is part of what creates our reality.

Think about this, everything we see in our world, this computer I am working on, the microwave behind me, the tv, our cars, a jet engine, everything in our world was first created by a single thought that came up as a thought in someone’s mind and then moved into their imagination and they started to created it. Now maybe it took years to bring it to fruition or teams of people to actually bring about maybe a vaccine for an illness. Maybe it took many many years but every single thing in our world was once just a thought in someone’s mind.

So if you think about that, you begin to realize how amazingly powerful each and every one of us really is! I mean we have the ability with every single thought we have to shape our world on a daily basis.

And it gets even cooler than that!!  because With every thought that we have we are consciously making a decision. Click To Tweet

That decision either brings us closer to our dream or further away from it.

#1 FEAR we all have in common?

#1 FEAR we all have in common?

Do you know what it is?

This is Julianna Lyddon and here is my question for you today.  Do you know what the number one fear is that most of us have in common?  Take a second… if you guessed being alone than you nailed it.  Studies show that most of us are scared of being alone at one time or another in our lives.  Now its natural for us to be concerned about this as we get older especially if we are going to lose our partner or we are in ill health.  But I want to talk about this concept of really being ok with being alone. No matter how old you are.  Because here’s the thing,

we spend our lives building relationships outside of ourselves Click To Tweet

We spend time working at the family relationships.  We spend time working at the relationships at our work or in our community or with our neighbors or in-laws and on and on.  But often we don’t spend time getting to know ourselves.  Many of us can define who we are by the relationships that we are in.  You know that individual who when their loved one goes out of town and they are alone, they have to go to stay at someone else’s house. Or we know that individual that can’t go anywhere without being with other people or they always have to be busy.  Because being alone is very scary, is very unsettling.

Connect With What Lies Beneath

Connect With What Lies Beneath

 

Connect with what lies beneath… What does this mean?

So many of us go through life so busy and running in so many directions that we don’t always take the time to see what’s under the surface of our lives, what lies beneath. This relates to so many different aspects of who we are and how we see and react to all those experiences. We have been conditioned throughout our lives to respond a certain way…we learned many of these behaviors, thoughts, actions, while growing up. Some good, some bad.

Do You Know Your Life’s Purpose?

 

Do you know what your life’s purpose is?

Have you given your life’s purpose much thought? Many of us, when asked what our life’s purpose is, don’t have an answer for this question. 

Often, when I ask my clients if they know what their purpose is in life, they give me a very scared look! Often, I find that individuals feel as though their answer they give might not sound important or valuable enough. People think that their purpose has to be this grandiose role or unbelievably difficult task that only a few can do.
