Set Yourself Free 

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Bonus Episode 1

 

~This is a message of healing and personal choice.  ~

💜

 

Maybe it is one of the hardest decisions - to let go of another person and a relationship that you have had all of your life.

Maybe you have deliberated this for some time, and questioned yourself about your decision to step free.

 

This episode follows some of the earlier content of Season Three on the topic of abuse, of trauma, and of the ways in which we can heal ourselves.

 

I wrote this episode as a message of healing and to offer you permission to step away; to set yourself free from those who continue to be hurtful and who have repeatedly shown you that they are not ready nor willing to change.

 

Whether the pattern of abuse and trauma has occurred in your family of origin, or if it has existed in a workplace environment ~ and if you have felt trapped and unable to break free, let this episode offer you both the permission and the viable means in which to free yourself ~ to stand strong on your own ground of what you know is right and best for you.

 

Remember that you need to choose this because others have chosen to continue in their abusive and harmful words and actions. 

 

There is no blame, only acceptance and permission ~ to live in peace.

 

I hope that my words here will help you ~ empower you ~ liberate you to live free. 

Namaste! 💜

PRATYAHARA ~ Awareness of the Senses ~ 

The Fifth Limb of The Yoga Sutras

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 65

 

~ See without the senses distracting or pulling the mind,  ~

💜

 

*Pratyahara is the fifth limb of yoga in the Ashtanga yoga system—also called the eight-limbed path of the yoga sutras—and it serves as a foundation for the practice of meditation.

 

Through meditation, you can better understand how to hone your awareness, connect to the present moment, and find inner peace or calm.

 

In the practice of pratyahara you draw your mind inward ~ you release the urge to immediately react to incoming sensation. You approach stilling the mind by shifting the act of sensing from an external to an internal orientation.

 

Through the practice of pratyahara, you develop concentrative powers that could be called supra ~ above sensory because the act of seeing or feeling becomes heightened to a tremendous degree. It is as though you have new eyes and ears, new senses. You perceive colour more vividly and enjoy your food more, and as you truly wake your senses, you awaken to and value the inner psychological and spiritual dimensions that are the substance and source of what you feel, see, taste, smell and hear.

 

Your attention in the practice of pratyahara is directed inwards, being totally aware of where the impulse to breathe in and breathe out arises. The total awareness of this itself is pratyahara – or drawing one’s attention into and within oneself.

 

 

I liken this to what I call a state of bliss. And yes it is a state of being that you can live in as you practice pratyahara ad as you seek to live this state more of the time – especially during the practice of meditation, mindfulness, inner contemplation, presence in this moment.

 

 

Join me for this beautiful exploration of the fourth limb of the Yoga Sutras ~ PRATYAHARA.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

love, dorothy

The Official Name Change Episode

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

'ask dorothy' | A Real Life Client Story

The Teaching of Impermanence

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 48

 

“This too shall pass.”  ~

💜

 

In this episode of ‘ask dorothy’ I share a real-life client story (and a little of my own) that speaks to the beautiful nature of the human spirit when we can offer kindness and care to others in the words we speak, in sharing of our chainsaws to help clean up fallen trees and other examples of the actions that convey our oneness.

 

A grand example of both impermanence and oneness is the world covid pandemic and the fact that 77 countries at this very moment are still deeply struggling as case numbers in this week alone have increased, while in other countries we are quickly choosing to forget the discomfort and personal hardships that we have suffered.

 

Even as we are in different stages of a shared experience, this global phenomenon is one significant reminder of our oneness as humanity in a way that we typically are not able to see.

 

In this episode, we see how my client Olivia* chose to face the negativity and criticism among some of her colleagues with a teaching of impermanence and connection, and by practicing the presence of 'oneness'. 

* All clients names and some details of their story are changed in order to protect their confidentiality. 

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

The Yamas Series: 3 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 43

 

If you have everything and if you have the ability to have everything, you will never be in need.  ~

💜

 

Welcome to this episode and the third of a five-part series on the yamas. Yamas are the first limb of yoga in the Ashtanga yoga system.

 

The literal translation of the word Yama in Sanskrit is “restraint”. Religious texts of Hinduism and Jainism outline five yamas.

 

In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, asteya is described as the emptiness that is caused by a deep loss, unfulfilled desire, and the resulting lack or insecurity, jealousy or resentment that we focus on rather than looking inward ~ which always guides us to what we can and still need to do to support our well being; and to feel fulfilled, content, peaceful, and joyful.

 

According to the teachings in the Yoga Sutra (2.37), when we perfect the principle of asteya, riches comes to us. Although material wealth may unexpectedly appear when we need it, true spiritual wealth comes when we’re complete and whole within ourselves.

 

We don’t need to envy or take from others – whether in their time, their energy, or to seek attention and approval in order to feel good about ourselves.

 

We can rest in the unconditional love and wisdom that resides within us and experience the wholeness of our true self.

 

From this sense of inner fulfillment, we naturally want to give to others rather than to take from them.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

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.

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!

love, dorothy

What is Your Path of Joy? | A Real Life Client Story

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 36

The beauty of joy is that it acts as a road map for the expression of happiness and the inner fulfillment that honours your heart in light of your moment by moment choices. -

What is your path of joy? How is joy your inspiration; leading you on your journey through life? Where in your physical being do you feel joy? How does joy reveal itself to you?

For my client Sarah, joy became a desired longing and a precious gift the longer that she remained out of joy.

In our session, Sarah reminded herself of her path of joy – of how it felt as the energy of lightness and ease and of the happiness.

 

Joy is experienced in the simple and deliberate expressions of gratitude and abundance. Joy is always with you. It is easily accessible as you acknowledge its existence and as you hold a place in your heart for its infinite love in the present moment ~ and in your pure witnessing of it.

 

The beauty of joy is that it acts as a road map for the expression of happiness and the inner fulfillment that honours your heart in light of your moment by moment choices.

 

Sarah would need to be wholly honest with herself to reclaim her path of joy. You need to do the same. We all do. Joy is easily accessible. It is the acknowledgement of all that you are in appreciation of, and the kindness you hold in your thoughts and words for yourself and others.

 

Joy lived in Sarah’s expression of honesty and acknowledgement of what she needed to be happy.

 

Could you live in your expression of self-honesty? Could you follow what is truly your right path, moment by moment?

 

*My client’s name has been changed to maintain confidentiality.

 

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.

 

 

If you would like my help to find your path back to joy and authentic happiness, please reach out to me.

 

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

love, dorothy

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!

love, dorothy

A Meditation of LOVE and LIGHT

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 23

~ Trust in the wisdom of your innermost dwelling self.  This is the part of you that lives awakened and of your light in the material world. ~

 

Have you ever wondered what the words 'love and light' symbolize?  What is this salutation and greeting and how can these three simple words be the guiding metaphor for you and for each one of us, to free ourselves from the conditions that hold us back from being our true self?  

 

Here and through the experience of guided meditation, embracing all religions and spiritual beliefs, let my words in this contemplative prose help you to discover your inner light and the love that you already are - to be and live in the world.

 

Love and light are the reminders of what your heart expresses in openness, in care, in love and in gratitude.  It is what you exist as now and also what you aspire to.

 

In love and light you hold the space for yourself to exist.  It is both a mantra and a reminder of how each one of us can walk through life in the pureness and grace of what we are.

 

You are love.  You are the energy of love and pure light.  If you see yourself as this; if you continue to remember that this is what you are, then you will feel at peace - comforted by your own choice to live as your light and of the playful ways that you are of love.

 

Now more than ever we thrive in our humanity; in the power of our word and our actions to live honorably - to be self-accountable and to always do the right thing.

 

In some of the episodes of The WISDOM podcast, I've previously included guided meditation because this is one important means of connecting with your highest self; to experience the energy of your heart, the energy of your being, to exist for a time as the nonphysical - to be aware of what you are beyond your mind and body and to also feel the peace and calm that exists within you.

 

I share this meditation of love and light.  It's the first in a very special series of eight of which each meditation guides you on a journey deep within yourself and to witness the inner world of peace and tranquility, of love and kindness, of grace and the true power that we all hold when we live from this place. 

 

Let your own life be guided by the presence of love and light.  Let these words be your mantra for how you approach and live in all situations and of great dignity.

 

In the comments, I'd love to hear from you as to what you experienced during and after this heart opening meditation.  It's a contemplate experience that awakens you to live as your nonphysical self - expansive and free.  

 

Please settle into a comfortable posture and give this time and space to your whole being for the reminder of what you are and the gift of how to live of love and light now and always.  

 

 

If you would like my help to feel the love and light that you are capable of living and feeling,  please reach out to me.  namaste! 🙏

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

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

Namaste!

love, dorothy

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 yourself.

 

 

 

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
