'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

SVADHYAYA ~ Self-Study ~ 

The Niyamas Series: 4 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 55

 

~ The world gives you what you see. ~

💜

 

In this week’s episode we dive into the discipline of self-study and why this is necessary for self-fulfillment, epic growth, and personal freedom.

 

Here I share the steps for self-study and the ways in which we can experience our perceptions to invite us deeper into ourselves with love and grace and appreciation and for learning how capable we are.

The Sanskrit word for this is svadhyaya. Sanskrit is the world’s oldest language and it is the ancient and the classic language of India.

 

'Self-study' or Svadhyaya refers to knowing our true identity as divine consciousness. Think of it like this: This means that you already are ‘good enough’ capable, and perfect as you are.

 

Svadhyaya is the fourth of 5 Niyamas or observances that originate in the ancient text of the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali.

 

The Yoga Sutras or ‘threads’ (as this word translates from Sanskrit) are a collection of 196 short verses that serve as a guide to attain wisdom and self-realization on how to live in order to advance along a spiritual path towards enlightenment.

 

Beyond the postures of yoga, the scripture of the yoga sutras provides the disciplines and observances that guide you in a practical and sacred methodology – to bring greater understanding to your life experiences and the guidance for taking ownership of your life, directing it towards the fulfillment that you seek.

 

 

In this episode I cite and also quote directly from Deborah Adele’s book: . From my research and study of the Yamas and the Niyamas, I’ve found Deborah’s book to be thoroughly enjoyable to read and I love how she has woven personal stories and other wisdom teachings throughout. I will leave a link here for how you can get a copy.

 

The yogis teach that we, as human beings, are at our core ~ divine consciousness.

 

Around this pure consciousness we have been impacted by our varied experiences, our conditioning, and our belief systems. This changes the way in which we see and identify ourselves, what we believe to be true, our preferences and dislikes, and our fears ~ and imagination.

 

If you think about the various layers that we hold ~ each informed by country, culture, gender, family history, the groups we belong to, and our personal experiences, it becomes difficult to remember who we truly are.

 

Who you are is the god consciousness. You don’t need to pray to a god outside of you. You simply need to be your god consciousness far more of the time ~ to live this ~ and to realize how incredible you are as your goodness.

 

The yogis tell us that we suffer because we forget who we are. We forget that we are really the divine.

Svadhyaya or self-study is about knowing our true identity and understanding the experiences that have shaped us. We find clues to this by watching our projections, tracing our reactions back to a belief we hold, and by courageously looking at life as it is.

 

This process of knowing ourselves creates a path to freedom. The ability to shift the way in which we identify ourselves from our ego to being a witness, and finally to our true identity as the divine itself is what svadhyaya – calls the joy of self-study.

 

I close out the episode with the practical ways to embrace the teaching of Svadhyaya.  Please join me!

 

Please consider a practice of self-study.  Leave a note for me here!  Share with me what you are learning in your devotion inward.

 

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

The Discipline of Purity

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 50

 

What are the ways in which you can seek to live with a pure heart? ~

💜

 

Patterns of thinking, beliefs, assumptions, and the daily habits of the mind and body that keep us far removed from the precious experiences of our life and the way in which life reveals how perfect each moment truly is and how we can witness this purity with an open heart.

In Sunday’s episode of the podcast we began the journey ~ the first of a series of 5 into the Niyamas.

Niyamas are the second limb or path of the yoga sutras and are the Sanskrit word for observances.

These ancient wisdom teachings impress upon us the gifts of living the sacred possibilities of life ever abundant ~ unfolding in perfect ways and of our inner dwelling appreciation of the relationship we hold with ourselves and to which we seek to live as spirit in action.

In this episode of ‘ask dorothy’, we examine how life can be sacred, how it can feel special and hopeful ~ and how you can live your daily habits and routines as the most beautiful moments ~ enjoyed purely.

 

In this Q & A episode I ask you the questions that help embrace what has been missing; what has kept you far removed from seeing the pureness and beauty of life ~ in the simple pleasures and in the richness of living each moment present to the fullest.

 

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...

 

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

Namaste!

ASTEYA ~ Non-stealing ~ 

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!

love, dorothy

The Truth Sets You Free

'ask dorothy'

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 42

 

~ Truth will lead you out of darkness because it is in illuminating ‘what is’ that you then may in the very next moment, find your path again and into the light.  ~

 

💜

 

This episode picks up where we left on last in our discussion of the five Yamas – moral disciplines that are recorded in the ancient philosophical texts of the Yoga Sutras and here I dive into some ‘Q and A’ on the topic of truth.

 

Truthfulness or ‘Satya’ is the second yama or limb of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and this moral vow holds many secrets for how we can free ourselves from our suffering.

 

There are many ways that truth finds you. As much as some may avoid truth’s yearnings you can never avoid or deny its huge revelations.

 

I’m going to let you in on a huge secret to what will always bring joy into your life and for what will always reassure you – to live honourably – to feel supported in your decisions – and to always guide you along a right path.

 

Satya the Sanskrit word for truth is the definitive ground. It is what supports and upholds all of your faithful decisions. It is truth that compels you to seek change and to honour what you stand for and believe in.

 

Truth is how you create relations and connection and how you show yourself to be trustworthy and reliable. You need to know ‘what is’ true with accuracy and factual information in order to make the right and best decisions.

 

Truth is not always easy. It is not always what you want to hear or know especially if what is desired is something different. Let me say here that the truth will always be what you need to know.

 

You can work with truth. You can find your way to your right answers when you have the correct and accurate information.

 

Making a decision of any importance needs to rest upon knowing the truth.

 

 

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.

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!

love, dorothy

There can be a place for forgiveness in your heart for the unkind and hurtful actions given by another; for any damaging and abusive behaviour together with the harmful messages that have caused you to hold doubt and a lack of confidence in yourself and of your abilities ~ and for what has evoked within you ~ to question what you know is true and best for your life.

 

I want you to know that you can find a place for forgiveness in your heart and throughout your being - that leads you out of the sadness and suffering you have felt and into freedom: freedom that releases the hurts of the past, freedom that liberates you into the moments of now ~ and no longer mired in thoughts that ruminate on the extent of the damage that has been caused to you.

 

"You break the cycle when you liberate yourself from needing to make another person see the truth of their actions and to change, you free yourself to heal, to refocus on your life, and you are able to release your suffering.

You are not responsible for fixing another person nor a relationship.

You cannot change the past.

You must simply make a decision as to what kind of relationship this is realistically able to be based on all that you have been observing ~ of the other person, and yourself."

 

You may be wondering how forgiveness is a solution; how will it change any of the replete demonstrations of someone’s unkindness, dishonesty, and disrespect ~ or worse - the inconceivable acts of rage and violence from one human being to another.

 

Something that I want you to keep in mind as we go through this episode is the fact that people who are hurting, hurt others.

 

As humans, we repeat the cycle of dishonour, disrespect, aggression, and abuse in its many forms as learned behaviours and for as long as we remain unaware of and/or if we refuse to look at these actions with honesty and reverence.

 

 

 

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

 

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

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

Why You Need Self-Mastery | A Real Life Client Story

- A special episode for parents -

Life happens in the distinct and beautiful way that you name your power; that you hold divine wisdom and truth as the highest standard by which you live; and that nothing limits you when you are seeking all of what is most wanted.”

 

The timing of this episode is perfect. I have been waiting for just the right moment to share this ‘ask dorothy’ episode of the wisdom podcast with you; and as much as we are about to step into one of the theoretically happiest times of the year; and to give ourselves the gift of relaxation and a healthy balance of social connection; and as we prepare to ride out the last days of this year and to also contemplate new beginnings and hope for a year that is awaiting, the topic of self-mastery is absolutely on point. Because it is something that we all strive for; and that we all need to become even better at.

 

To take you through the rest of the holiday season, to help you consider your goals for up levelling your life and for ensuing that what you have mastered and are living continues to be an important and distinct part of your life, join me in this episode of ‘ask dorothy’ as we look into the lives of one couple and their family and how even a very difficult situation can always offer the success of personal change and growth that improves the lives of one person and has the magical and compound effect of affecting so many others.

 

If you have been in search of one specific life skill that will be a game changer for the rest of your life, this is it. Join me as we are about to dive deep into what you need now and what will help you to achieve the rest of what you seek in your life.
