Below is a powerful TEDx Talk by Koelle Simpson LLC. She speaks on horses and how they can mirror your deepest beliefs and/or fears, in a very eye-opening way. She is a renowned horse trainer and horse ‘whisperer’. She continues to heal the lives of others, rebuilding trust in themselves as well as in their relationships. And the most amazing part about it!? It is all through working with horses on a deep and spiritual level. This short video will leave you feeling warm-hearted and inspired to live your own truth!
I cannot get enough of this woman! Martha Beck is amazingly brilliant and so inspiring. She is someone who each and every one of us can relate to. She has experienced many things in her life, from good to bad. She has the ability to give her experiences profound meaning, which can be both eye-opening and transformative.
This Ted Talk just shows another glimpse of her brilliance. She invites us to take another step into ourselves and to find that inner self that we have been slightly ignoring. We each possess the magic within to transform our lives and our world. Get inspired and live your best life! Take twenty minutes to watch this video and I promise you, you will walk away feeling more awake then ever.
Oprah and Dr. Weiss talk Miracles!
There are many skeptics out there who don’t believe in such matters. Dr. Weiss himself was one of those skeptics, until he had a patient that changed his life forever.
I encourage each and every one of you to watch this with an open mind.
SOAK IT ALL IN.
This video really resonates with me. For the past four years or so I have dedicated much of my time exploring what it is that makes my heart smile. I have worked for a few different companies and although I learned and experienced a great deal from each job, none of them ever felt quite right.
I wanted more passion in my life! I wanted to feel fulfilled everyday I left work and excited everyday I went to work.
So I began writing, meditating, thinking, and believing that one day soon, I would find that something that made my heart jump for joy. That day came and I later realized, I had known my passion all along. This new endeavor only showed me another channel to express my passion through and make a living while doing so.
Now there are many skeptics out there saying that you can’t achieve your dreams because they aren’t realistic or there isn’t money to be made. However, if you look within and follow your heart, it will never lead you astray.
If you feel like you can relate to my story, yet haven’t found your niche, then it is time to open the door towards self-realization. Get to know yourself on a deeper level. Spend some quality time with yourself, begin to meditate, write down your thoughts, and/or do something everyday that makes your heart smile.
Many people travel down the so called ‘guided’ path through life. As if our lives should be in corespondence with a time line that says when we should go to college, when we should graduate, and what job we should take. The the road less traveled is where your life truly begins. You go in as one person and along the way evolve into the person you never thought possible. The path less traveled is what awakens your heart and confronts your fears. So don’t be afraid to go out on a limb, becuase that is where the fruit is. 🙂
Here is some inspiration for your day!
Deepak Chopra along with his daughter, Mallika Chopra, have created a program called The 30 Days of Intent. The 30 Days of Intent is to help individuals become more aware of their authentic selves by living with intention. They follow two individuals, YouTube star, Iman Crosson and professional athlete and entrepreneur, Natalie Spilger for 30 days, capturing their personal progress and marking their journey.
The episode I chose to share with you focuses on living with an open heart. This episode was very touching because they demonstrated how the relationship between a human and a horse can reflect the present state of ones heart . Horses can feel your emotional, spiritual, and physical state. They are able to sense your energy and when they do they respond accordingly. It is magical!
The message which I am trying to convey through this blog post is to live open heartedly. As you will see, after watching this video, living with an open heart enables you to live your life to its fullest potential, while living with a closed heart only holds you back from life’s infinite possibilities.
My boyfriend, Evan Garcia, has an unbeatable passion for whitewater kayaking! Paddling ever since he was a young boy, it has now become his life, passion, and love. He travels the world searching for class five white water. He has an unmeasurable liberty while pursuing his passion. It is humbling to witness, as Evan embarks on kayaking 100 foot waterfalls, paddles rivers most of us will never see, and ventures to the most remarkable and beautiful sights of nature.
Now that Evan has made a name for his self in the sport of whitewater kayaking, he utilizes his unique filming abilities to share with the world his adventures of kayaking and the explorations he finds while doing so.
He put together this five-minute video to show everyone a glimpse of what he does and how he captures his footage while on the river. All of this video is captured on a small Go Pro camera. It is amazing that we are able to see his explorations and days on the river through this tiny camera he can attach to his helmet and kayak!
Wow! I found a video that held my attention for longer than 10 minutes! Not to say that I don’t find videos inspiring if they are 10 minutes or shorter, but I haven’t found a inspiring video that has held my attention in a little white! 🙂 (That also may be because I haven’t been looking ;)) shhhh…
Well this video inspired me! Alastair Humphreys talks about worthwhile adventures- big or small adventures. He quotes it ever so very nicely when he says, “Adventure is just about doing something you’ve never done— doing it with enthusiasm and curiosity: doing something difficult with… passion.”
DOING SOMETHING DIFFICULT WITH PASSION.
That was KEY for me. Without having watched the video and only seeing that last part of his quote, I knew this video was going to be a hit!
I love adventure, but at times I think it needs to be over the top to be actually called an adventure. That is not true. We can do small things that we have never done before and call it an adventure… like riding your bike to work or taking a new route to work.
I love writing, inspiring people, listing to other’s inspiring stories, being with nature, traveling, creating art work… so if I could combine all that I love and make it into some type of adventure I think the outcome would be amazing!
We must begin somewhere even if it is small. SMALL is good! It is a start that could lead to something great!
