~ "Change is needed.  Change is inevitable.  Change is freedom.”  - dorothy zennuriye juno ~

💜

 

What bold and daring decision have you made a reality?

Do you follow your heart regularly and do you follow it through to where it leads you?

Have you ever done something radically different and then fallen in love with it?

Have you ever felt an inner desire that you gave your attention to that spurred you towards action ~ whether it was to write a book, learn an instrument, build a garden, , move your life to a different geography, have a child, give up an addiction, or perhaps to fall in love with yourself and your life?

There are some of the many experiences of making decisions driven by an awakened voice within you and the conscious desire to evolve and transform ~ to live full on and unapologetically as your true self ~ even if at times, you may not know (just yet) where the path unfolding ~ will lead.

This episode is dedicated to each one of you as you begin the steps ~ a simple yet excitable idea that launches you towards sight unseen, what will become a future revelation of you ~ and at other times the giant and indeed scary leaps forward ~ towards the vision you have always held ~ your heart certain ~ all that you need to do is follow its urging towards something new and always in hopes of a brighter and more compelling life ~ that you are choosing.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

TAPAS ~ Self-Discipline ~ 

The Niyamas Series: 3 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 53

 

~ "If we choose to walk into the fire, it is perhaps the greatest gift life could offer us." ~

💜

 

Welcome to the third episode in this series on the Niyamas. Niyama is a Sanskrit word that translates as “rules, guidelines, or observances.” Niyamas appear in Hindu and Buddhist texts, and they are best known as the second limb of the eight limbs of yoga, as described in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras.

 

These eight steps act as guidelines for how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. They serve as a prescription for moral and ethical conduct and principles; they direct attention toward one’s health; and they help us to acknowledge the spiritual aspects of our nature.

 

The Niyamas are an invitation into a radical exploration of possibility. Just how good can you feel? How joyful can your life be? Can you reveal just how amazing you are?

My hope in sharing each of the five niyamas – is to open you further to the spiritual life that you can live in the physical ~ and the absolute beauty and wonder that you may cultivate readily for yourself.

 

In this episode I cite and also quote directly from Deborah Adele’s book: The Yamas and Niyamas. Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice in addition to other sources that I will list in the description. They if you wish to continue your study.

 


Tapas - or self-discipline, austerity, perseverance, burning enthusiasm ~ describes a spirit of ‘fierce grace’.


In Tapas we employ physical and mental conditioning to push against the natural resistance our body and mind present. This resistance is what generates your inner fire.

 

The literal definition of tapas is “heat” – and in this case it is the heat that builds during periods of determined effort. Tapas accompanies any discipline that is willingly and gladly accepted in order to bring about a change of some kind—whether it be improved health, a new habit, better concentration, or a different direction in life.

 

Tapas is a process of burning through untruths, fears, discomfort, pain, and struggle ~ channelling the fire of that experience into self-disciplined actions that fuel your evolution.

Tapas focuses energy, creates fervour, and increases strength and confidence.

For example, the practice of asanas in yoga is a form of tapas for the body; meditation is a tapas that purifies and focuses the mind.

Tapas is the encouragement to tap into your inner fire as what you draw from ~ as discipline to transform yourself into something else.

 

 

I also invite to check out my 5-part series on the Yamas next. These are moral disciplines that transcend all world religions as guiding us to live of our light and our highest self. I will leave links for this series in the description.

 

 

 

Please consider how you can live with greater self-discipline.  Allow your discipline to guide you into the fire of fierce grace.  Leave a note for me here!  Share with me the discipline that you invite into your life.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

"If You Doubt Your Greatness, Do You Have The Imposter Syndrome?" with Dorothy Ratusny

the Wisdom Podcast  Season 1  Episode 4

"Our beliefs about our self and our abilities are established very early in life.  The words and messages that we repeatedly hear in childhood become what we believe as "truth."  This includes any or all of the less than kind ways in which we may have learned to think about our self.

 

Our caregivers have but one sacred opportunity to help us nurture and develop healthy self esteem; and this occurs during the earliest part of our life – fundamentally in the first five years as we are learning and taking in so much information about how to navigate successfully in our environment and within the social mores and customs of our culture and the world at large.  We need unconditional love and nurturing to develop trust in our self and our abilities and to thrive in the world.  Feeling secure and safe helps build our confidence to be self-reliant and successful, and to know that we are lovable and 'good enough'.

Self-critical thoughts may cause us to doubt our abilities, to experience anxiety, and to self-sabotage our inherent potential.  These thoughts and beliefs originate as the well rehearsed messages from childhood that continue to haunt us and overtake our rational mind.  It takes so little to convince an innocent child that they are undeserving or not good enough.

Critical and berating words spoken by others become the repetitive and discouraging 'negative' inner dialogue that causes self-doubt and a lack of belief (usually experienced as anxiety, fear, and a lack of confidence).

 

Though the imposter phenomenon isn't an official diagnosis listed in the DSM, psychologists and others acknowledge that it is a very real and specific form of intellectual self-doubt.  By definition, most people with imposter feelings suffer in silence, says Imes, a clinical psychologist in private practice in Georgia. "Most people don't talk about it. Part of the experience is that they're afraid they're going to be found out."  - Source: American Psychological Association

 

I see this often in my work with clients; and it is through self-honesty and the willingness to hold up a metaphorical mirror to one's self; to decide and commit to the changes that are needed that one no longer feels like an imposter.  On a spiritual level, we feel like a fraud or imposter because we know that we are not living our life in a way that is congruent to our highest self; and the most honourable way that we could be in the world.  It isn't entirely about believing in one's successes and ability but in stepping up and into one's truth; that is living as the highest and best version of yourself as much as possible, that allows you to feel confident, worthy, and to own your successes completely.

If you find this notion insightful, and it is something that holds true for you, consider the moments in which you live authentic and of your highest self; when you are living your truth, and when you are being your beautiful, loving, generous self.  Notice if in these same moments you feel certain, confident, and powerful and in which you own your abilities and successes in the world.  Your feelings of being an imposter may also be the precipice for seeking to live your truth and for igniting your spiritual path in the direction of your highest self.

 

The compelling questions for so many people who identify with this phenomena is:

"HOW DO I FIX THIS?"

and...

How can I begin to believe that the good things that happen to me; including my successes and accomplishments, are because I am deserving, capable, and worthy of success?

DO YOU HAVE IMPOSTER SYNDROME? TAKE THE QUIZ NOW

In therapy, I help clients identify the incorrect core beliefs that they have been taught to believe from a much earlier age.  This is a powerful means of eradicating the underlying and often indiscernible root cause of self-doubt and the belief that one is a fraud (aka: an imposter). This process is intimate and personal, since each individual has their own set of both positive and problematic core beliefs.  Identifying your problematic core beliefs is the first step in changing, and forming what are called new and accurate beliefs.

 

I then help clients to challenge and rewrite their problematic core beliefs with new statements that they know to be true.  For some, this is relatively easy since when they discover the core belief that underlies their daily thought patterns, they realize instantly how incorrect it is.  For others who believe their damaging core belief to be true – it is because they have lived it for some time; having found (whether real or imagined) what they believe is proof for their damaging core belief.

In either instance, there is a process for challenging problematic and untrue core beliefs that works extremely well in helping to eradicate an individual’s untrue belief and thus changing their perspective and their thoughts of themselves forever.
