{Video} Our Most Inspired Work: We Are All Teachers All the Time

In today’s new video blog, I share a fresh way of thinking about our true work in the world as so vastly much more than just some 9-to-5 gig.

I firmly believe that we are here to be Love and we were designed to teach Love in every possible way. In fact, that is THE entire reason I created Glory Begin.

As I began to explore what it means to be a teacher, it became more and more apparent that we are all teachers all the time.  We teach through our words, our actions, and even through the thoughts we think. All of these things affect the energy of the universe.

One of the greatest ‘teachers of teachers’ is the beautiful soul known as Yogi Bhajan, who introduced the technology of Kundalini Yoga to the U.S. in the 1970’s as a way of heightening awareness of – and connection to – our spiritual selves.

In this video, I share one of Yogi Bhajan’s most uplifting lessons about the real reason why we put our most inspired work out there into the world. This lesson went straight to my soul.

Listen in and let know if this hits home for you:

 

Are there ways in which you feel called to share inspiration in the world that maybe you haven’t explored yet?  Don’t worry about your title or your day job or any kind of label society may place on you. What is the beautiful creative love work you desire to do?

Your intuition is always pointing you toward your highest work, beloved. Follow your joy.

We are all teachers, all the time. And the greatest demonstration of love is just to begin to share it in the best way we know how.

So much peace and light to you, beautiful, beautiful souls.

Thank you for your presence, your creativity, your warmth, and your voice.

With biggest love, always,

Allison Marie Xx

5 Minute Spirit Detox: Letting Go of Attachment and Attack

Wild

Letting go of attachment and attack is an important way to be able to stay in touch with our intuition and creativity. It is the best way to refresh and renew our spirits by allowing inspiration to come through us, unblocked.

This 5 Minute Spirit Detox Cleanse is a quick way to come back to center at the beginning and end of your day.

In today’s busy world, it is super easy to pick up, harbor and hold on to negative energy without even being fully aware of it. As we move about our jam-packed days we subconsciously absorb subtle (or, in some cases, not so subtle) messages of attack, pain, cruelty, self judgement, jealousy and stress.

If we don’t empty ourselves of all this heaviness, it compounds and sort of cakes up (not the good kind of cake with butter cream frosting and candles – we are talking about the bad kind of cake) inside of us without release.

In order to tune in to that higher frequency of love and peace, we need to acknowledge and release the negative energy we are holding on to that keeps us crippled and held back from our full potential. Negative energy is toxic for mind, body and spirit. It’s gotta go.

I hope this Spirit Detox cleanse will serve you well, dear ones.

The 5 Minute Detox Meditation: Spirit Cleanse

(Transcript below)

Welcome, welcome angel to your five minute Spirit Detox meditation. This meditation is perfect for those who are willing, open and ready to go deeper with their spiritual practice and to surrender to the power of practicing non-attachment.

So let’s take a moment to sit up comfortably in your space, relax your mind and body.

Gently close your eyes and take a deep breath in deep, deep, deep, and exhale fully, all the way out your mouth.

As the following mantras are read, follow along and allow your spirit to be refreshed through the exercise of letting go.

I am empty of self doubt.

I am empty of stress.

I hold on to nothing.

I am empty of judgement.

I am empty of self attack.

I hold no attack toward others.

I empty myself of all harshness.

I hold on to nothing. I am empty.

I am a vessel for peace and light.

I let go of the heaviness.

I am empty of all hurt.

I am empty of all jealousy.

Empty of all cruelty.

I am empty of thought.

In this moment I need no thinking. No words.

I am empty of desire.

I am empty of the desire to please or to fix.

I am empty of the need for praise.

Empty of the need for validation.

I am empty in this moment and I am whole.

I have no attachment to the judgement of others.

I am empty of need.

I seek nothing.

I choose in this moment to empty myself of the fears.

I surrender my fear to Love for healing.

I am empty of holding on, I let go of controlling.

I am empty of the past.

Empty of the future.

I am empty now.

Take a deep breath in through your nose, exhale fully out your mouth.

Empty of all negative energy.

Allow all stress to leave your body.

Allow all tension to leave your mind.

As you breathe in again deeply imagine your breath filling you with light and love and peace.

Imagine your entire being filled with the warm life giving energy of the gentle power of love.

You are exactly where you need to be.

And to close this meditation take a moment to imagine your entire body and mind glowing with light and warmth.

Breathe in peace.

And when you are ready, open your eyes.

(Podcast transcript is below)

Hello hello gorgeous people, beautiful souls! Thank you so much for being here and for bringing your amazing energy to this space. I am Allison, your host for the podcasts and the creator of Glory Begin.

First let me say thank you all for your messages and love following the opening podcast last week. I can’t tell you enough how much it means to me that you are out there and that we have connected. It is such a gift and I don’t take that for granted. There is a LOT of noise out there and so many messages coming at us from every which way so to be able to spend time interacting mindfully and peacefully here absolutely rocks my soul.

So I thank you for being here and I also want to say that I believe we are here for a reason. If you have come upon this message and something resonates with you, that is not an accident. In fact, I will even go so far as to say that there are no accidents in this life. Every single thing you experience is for a reason.
