The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 59

 

~ "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

'ask dorothy' | Q & A

Self-Study IS Liberation

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 56

 

~ "gnōthi seauton" ~ Know Thyself ~

💜

 

In this episode of ‘ask dorothy’ I answer the question: What are the characteristics and traits of those who self-actualize and who live in liberation and the freedom to be all that they can and more?

 

If you are here and listening, this is for you. 

We live in a society and a world in which we are taught to look outside of our self for answers, for authority, for validation, for friendship, for community; for the ideals that we are taught to strive for and the timeline for accomplishing what is deemed acceptable.

 

Nowhere is our heart more certain than when we have found another who loves and adores us.

 

The gaze is always external. Even when we are asked to know ourselves, we still compare what we see with what we perceive to be the inspired ideal.

 

Self-actualization can be misrepresented. We may have an idea and an image of what it means to experience a state of being in which we have arrived. We are here. We are complete.

 

Self-actualized people have an acceptance of who they are, including what I call ‘the ego mind’ ~ the human construct that at times pulls us in to the limited ways in which we think and act and which create our suffering.

 

When you are self-actualized you experience a drive to be creative in all aspects of your life. This is in fact how you thrive.

 

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

Self-Discipline Is Your Superpower | A Real Life Client Story

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 38

- Self-discipline is you acting on your greater conscience to do the right thing – for yourself and in any situation. -

💜

 

 

I think of self-discipline as a superpower because it is precisely what brings the inertia into the present moment for you to take action. It is what stops the chatter of the mind and overrides the old scripts that you replay with new language, the determination that says quite instinctively, “I can do this” and “I am doing this.”

 

Self-discipline could be exactly what you are missing and what keeps you from living your life in the way that you deeply desire.

So to ask yourself:How self-disciplined am I?’ Be wholly honest with your answer. and ‘Where in my life do I need to be more self-disciplined and how?’ These make great journal prompts for you to better self-examine the areas of your life that need self-discipline.

 

Self-discipline is so important that it is the single identifying criteria as to whether you get things done and in a timely manner.

 

Self-discipline stops the procrastination effect and the relinquishing of responsibility and it is the solution if you’ve ever struggled with unproductive or self-sabotaging habits that limit your potential.

 

In this episode we take a deep dive into the mechanisms that you need to build self-discipline; including how to up level your self-discipline in a way that supercharges your decisions and the actions you take ~ to support you in all of the best practices that you will live.

 

And if you are a parent, this episode will be helpful as it reminds you of the importance of setting the right example because your children will see the incongruity between what you say and what you do. Your actions speak louder than your words. Your children will learn the habits that you hold including a lack of self-discipline.

 

Each Tuesday at 8pm EST, I take you on a journey - inside - what happens in a session of Life Coaching and Therapy in the 'ask dorothy' series as we answer the questions that honour your path and your life.

 

 

To help you up level your self-discipline, please let me help you live your truth.

 

*The name of my client and the names of her parents have been changed to maintain confidentiality.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

Shedding The Inauthentic Self

An Experience Into Wholeness

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 37

 

~ The inauthentic parts of you are those parts that you are not happy with. ~

💜

 

Timestamps:

A Mantra:  0-1:56 |  Podcast Theme Intro:  1:57 |  The Inauthentic Parts Defined:  3:24 | How to Feel Whole and Complete:  5:41 | Reclaim All of Who You Truly Are ~ A Visualization Experience:  6:46 | Podcast Theme Outro:  23:14

 

This episode begins with a mantra to help you begin the energetic release of the aspects of you that you no longer wish to be ~ as you reclaim your wholeness with the behaviors, attitude, and beliefs that best represent your highest self.

Here we do some very cool shape-shifting towards living whole and of your authentic self.  

It’s time to break free from what aspects of yourself are inauthentic ~ that is ~ what has never served you.

 

We learn so much from the external world that does not serve who we truly are and all that we desire to be.

 

What traits, behaviours, mindset is not wholly kind and loving is also not authentic.

 

As humans we all experience moments when we are living out of our dark side ~ the inauthentic part of our self, largely ingrained with the ego’s need to be right, to be in competition with or better than another – and the desire to find approval and importance when really you already have everything you need to be monumental in your life ~ and true to your highest good.

 

“Release what you will no longer be – the antithesis of something is something better.”

 

Shedding the inauthentic self is releasing what is not wanted. This is replaced with a return to embracing what you truly are at your core. The new behaviours, mindset, thoughts, and actions all contribute to feeling whole and complete ~ as you are.

 

In releasing the cycles of your past, you are free to live whole ~ and true to yourself ~ all that is built upon what you are ~ that is pure goodness, grace, kindness, love, inspired to create and to thrive, and the ability to appreciate all of life’s beautiful moments in the present.

 

 

 

If you would like my help in your journey of living authentic, please reach out to me.  namaste! 🙏

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

Perseverance

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 26

Perseverance aligned with chosen destiny and clear heartfelt desire is where the magic happens. ~

 

 

 

The textbook definition of perseverance is: the continued effort to do and/or achieve something. It is determination, steadfastness; adherence despite difficulty, failure or opposition.

 

I talk about perseverance because it encapsulates the skills of clarity – of knowing what you want and being willing to pursue this including all of what you learn about yourself in the process.

 

The skill of discipline is necessary for perseverance; for knowing what it means to show up and to do the work towards all that you desire.

 

You can be crystal clear about your goals and what you need to do but it is the action together with the discipline for seeing and living this process that awakens you to the challenge of what is needed.

 

Discipline is also how you boldly complete your action (steps) with conviction because you know that it is the daily actions that become the lifetime of success and rewards that you live.

 

 

What do you need to persevere? What skills, positive habits, clarity of mind, decisiveness, resolve, belief?

 

 

What is one thing that you are persevering now?

 

What actions best support you?

 

 

What would you define as the skills and the mindset of perseverance?

- Is it positive attitude?

- Is it assessment of what is most important to you and why?

- Is it owning your value and worth?

- Is it being of love in the world?

- Is it dedication to follow a right plan and a path – and to always do the right thing?

- Is it to be unstoppable?

– Is to focus on the end goals – and what you will accomplish today, this week, month, this year?

 

 

Why do you need to persevere at this? (at this one thing or many things)

 

Do you want something? Are you seeking to become something?

 

 

If you would like my help as you persevere to complete your goals, and as you wish to live a more spiritual life, please reach out to me.  namaste! 🙏

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

Build A Positive Sense of Self:

8 Wildly Important ‘Best Practices' to Live By

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 18

“You can check in with all of those who love you; whose love is unconditional and unwavering but the true feeling of certainty is born out of the love that you liberate yourself unto.” - dorothy ratusny

 

 

Your positive sense of self is the means by which you live - awakened to know and appreciate all of the aspects that define you; in the context of how you witness yourself in the world, self-honest and willing to live honourably – to do the right thing – because this is how you experience yourself as a being of love.

 

 

In psychology, sense of self refers to your conceptualization of the collection of characteristics that define you.

 

Personality traits, abilities and skills, your likes and dislikes, your belief system, your morals and values, what motivates you — how you view yourself in relationships and your perception of how others relate to and receive you. These all contribute to self-esteem and your unique identity as a person.

 

There are many natural and organic ways that each one of us develops our sense of self beginning with our early childhood. With the known research in neural plasticity, we have the ability to change our sense of self; to develop a more positive and certainly a healthier sense of who we are.

 

In this episode we discuss what it means to have a healthy and strong sense of self – one that exists because of the relationship you build and nurture with yourself. This is the most important relationship you will ever have. It begins the true awakening of what lies within – what you are beyond the physical and your mind.

 

Sense of self is achieved by developing the means by which you can be comfortable and content in your own company and to enjoy the companionship of your self.

 

 

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

love, dorothy

This is Self-Love.

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 14

- this episode is dedicated to each and every client that I have been able to help feel the love that exists within; and that they are capable of being -

💜

What if self-love was something that you simply need to open yourself to; and to refrain from what thoughts and then behaviours keep you closed off from feeling its incredible effects?

 

You may have been struggling with how to feel more self-love, or perhaps you want to live more alive and free in your life; less burdened with the state of your mind and the world.  

Could you more easily feel the expression of beauty in life that exists everywhere you look?

I want to share a different perspective of self-love and one that is remarkable because self-love is your optimal state of functioning. It is how you feel at your best and most confident, and in a state of love you also live more authentic and true to who you are; uncompromising, purely creative, and carefree.

 

I think of it as a natural state of bliss, heaven on earth, and something that we are all able to experience here and now, and yes even in the midst of everything that we all have been living – and especially in the last couple of years.

As you align your thoughts and actions with love, you experience your higher good and your highest self as the pure energy of light. 

This is how you feel when you flow easily with ideas, and as you welcome situations and as you are able to think and feel positively about your life and the world. It’s akin to feeling and expressing happiness, joy, and bliss.

So dive in with me. Open your mind and your heart to more of what you already know, or to something completely new that will help you with what self-love truly is, and how easy in fact it can be to live this.

 

Please check out the list of resources below for all of the goods including The Ultimate Self-Love toolkit

 

If you would like my help to feel the love that you have and hold for yourself, and to live as this,  please reach out to me.  namaste! 🙏

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

love, dorothy

Self-Acceptance Is The Language of Self-Love  | The WISDOM podcast  | S2 E60

Self-Acceptance Is The Language of Self-Love | The WISDOM podcast | S2 E60

April 4, 2021

Self-Acceptance Is The Language of Self-Love

The WISDOM podcast  Season 2  Episode 60

 

 

Self-acceptance is how you move into your heart. It is how you choose to witness yourself in the presence of wonder and great light. If you are listening perhaps you have contemplated what self-acceptance truly feels like; how it embraces all of you; how the majesty of what you are and what you hold becomes sacred.

 

To live in the acceptance of who and what you are is to live of your spiritual self. It is to hold true to who you are in the face of honoring what you seek to become; and in the presence of right action.

 

A part of what you will hear in this episode comes out of my 10-day course: ‘The Sacred Teachings of Being Love.’ You can find this course and others in The School of Wisdom. (This course is set to launch in the summer of 2021).

Self-acceptance is one extraordinary element to living whole and feeling self-love. It is intrinsically tied to how you live and respond in the world.

 

If you have been struggling to build your confidence. If your self-esteem has cause you to doubt your abilities. If your confidence needs to be reflective of all that you truly are, then sit back with attention; you may choose to close your eyes to take in all of my words as you allow this wisdom in to you; to be what you have been in search of.

 

Acceptance is the value of appreciation and approval. It is the inner felt knowledge that you are more than enough. It is self-love in words and actions that are spoken quietly to yourself and as you speak about yourself in conversation with others.

 

I share this sacred practice with you as most people struggle to feel true acceptance. It is a part of our inherent desire; to be approved of and accepted by others as a hard-wiring for our oneness. We look for ways to make ourselves better in what measures we believe will be externally valued - by society, media, religion, culture; when true acceptance can only be yours to give to yourself.

 

You may also seek to become more just to do this because it is important for you and for your personal goals and the desires that fuel your right action. Then, what improvements you pursue, will continue to benefit all of you. Think of self-acceptance as the language by which you speak to yourself as encouragement, as pride, as the methods by which you choose to hold value and self-love.

 

Here I share the most important builders of self-acceptance beginning with your ability to appreciate and be loving of all that you already are. You do this with gentle and kind words written and spoken and the ever-present appreciation for that which you do not take for granted; and that all that you are capable of.

 

My hope is that you will dive and take advantage of the skill practices of self-acceptance that I share here as an excerpt from the 10 day course: 'The Sacred Teachings of Being Love.' Self-Acceptance is the topic of Day Two of the course.  This is one episode that you will want to dive into with pdf and pen!

 

Sending you much love....

This is Dorothy 💜

Namaste!

anatomy of an episode: here's what you will find in this episode of the wisdom podcast

- If you have ever wondered what a session of therapy could do, this episode is for you. -

How does one identify, effectively all of the ways that therapy can be of help? How do we do this without embracing the experience itself when the idea of talking with someone can be overwhelming for some who don’t know where to begin, or how it can truly help?

 

TRUTH SERUM:  In the past, the stigma associated with mental health has been a deterrent to seeking therapy.

What we are witnessing now, in this turbulent time of ongoing change and uncertainty, and with millions of people all over the world, experiencing more alone time and isolation than in any other time during their life, the effects of prolonged stress and the lack of support of mental health strategies and skills needed to live a healthy and productive and happy life; make it important to have the best therapeutic practices that are accessible by all people and in all languages and as much as possible - affordable and or free.

 

REAL CLIENT STORIES:  When my client (who was), diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 18, some 20 years later; is in a spell of low affect; when her cognitive ability is challenged; simple processing tasks are impeded.

It is more difficult for her to make decisions for example, and to feel motivated to complete daily tasks.

Her usual upbeat and larger than life personality becomes submersed in what is now a quiet and somber, depressed version of herself; one that lacks confidence, and is often tormented by thoughts of ‘being a burden’ to her loved ones.

Her words to me in these moments as well as when she is feeling ‘like herself’ and happy again, are substantial to us all. She reaffirms the simple truth: ‘Your mental health means everything’. She is right.

 

A-HA MOMENTS:  Therapy is far more than talking about a traumatic childhood event and reliving its scaring impact. 

In fact, the way that it helps best to deconstruct a past event or trauma is to examine it from an enlightened perspective; to understand the situation and the context in a way that allows for healing, forgiveness, acceptance, peace – and the idea that whatever happened, and for whatever was done “to you”, there are always going to be two positive outcomes that we will arrive at together.

(1) The first is a more accurate comprehension and understanding of the situation and the new insights and discoveries that arise out of a search for greater meaning and from that, the ability to come to acceptance. Acceptance does not mean agreement with what has happened, but rather the willingness to acknowledge what has already occurred.

This allows you to psychologically move into a place of action; of rendering what will be the action that you need to take whether as an approach to how you think or what physical actions will help support you best.

(2) Second, healing occurs when you hold acceptance of ‘what is’; emotional, psychological, cognitive, spiritual, and often physical in the relief of symptoms that were once related to the situation of the past and your perspective of it. This healing is the return to your wholeness that you; that we all - are inherently seeking.

 

PRACTICAL WISDOM: Even after the majority of healing has been completed, therapy can continue to be a place where one experiences growth in other areas of one’s life; and hence the ripple effect of what it means to learn and discover more (about one’s self, including the different choices one may choose with greater understanding and perspective).

As a side note, it’s not about making excuses for someone’s behavior, or disavowing your feelings and how you have been impacted by a situation or another.

Rather, examining the past from the vantage point of a different perspective that I or another therapist can help with, brings new insight and awareness that allows for healing and to alleviate some or all of the pain and suffering that one may have been holding onto.

anatomyofanepisode-400x43.png

In this part three of a six-part series of beautiful guided meditations, I invite you to open your heart and your mind; to witness yourself and the world in ways that remind you of how kind and peaceful your presence can be; how soothing and comforting your actions are for yourself and others, when you choose to walk in your life with greater presence of what it means to hold compassion; to be compassionate towards yourself and all others, for this is how you are 'love in action'.

 

Special for this series, I have written a new meditation on the practice of compassion; and of how you may instinctively be of compassion to yourself and others.

 

There is no greater offering when someone is less fortunate or suffering than to be compassionate; to feel for them and their situation because this is how you offer care and kindness.

 

Compassion is love.  It is in being compassionate that others are able to feel your genuine concern for their well being; and to hold even for a few moments, the space and the opportunity for them to know that they are  not alone.

 

Your kindness and love is so powerful.  It is this sacred action of compassion that allows others to rise up, to be heard, to heal, to take the right action for themselves. 

 

When you offer yourself compassion, you breathe in giving yourself patience to recognize where you are in your life; and you choose to offer unto yourself this gift of kind reverence; of patience and comfort, of understanding, of reassurance that you are not alone; that you will feel better; that kindness directed within is how you help move yourself into a state of peace, responsibility to what is needed and comfort in the knowing of your presence.
