Today Gia and Karen start off with Something Positive: the story of a dog who “adopted” an ultra-marathoner by running alongside him during an event in China.

Then they talk about the experience of having unexpected obstacles show up when following clear guidance. They offer their own best tips for coping with these sudden “stop signs” on the path of progress:

  • reframe the situation – see it as a need for better timing or an opportunity to learn more
  • let go of attachments to the outcome of your guidance
  • learn to trust the wisdom of the Universe
  • be curious about life’s mysteries
  • have patience and let life unfold with its own timing
  •  journal about obstacles and the feelings that are arising
  • choose a totem as a daily reminder of your Divine guidance
  • don’t take the obstacles personally

Karen shares this quote by Rumi:

A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe. What nine months of attention does for an embryo forty early mornings will do for your gradually growing wholeness.

Episode 9: Am I Good Enough? How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

mirrorgirl

 

Today Gia and Karen discuss the universal tendency to compare ourselves to others. There will always be someone who accomplishes more than us, has more wealth, better luck, or less suffering – or it least it seems that way. They share their own struggles with comparisons and how they are still working to overcome that tendency. You’ll hear about:

  • how the ego seeks rewards for accomplishments and clings to expectations (which is a set-up for disappointment)
  • we are each on our own path and get the lessons we need in life
  • other people become mirrors for us, helping us see where we need to love ourselves more
  • we need to appreciate what this life offers us instead of wishing for something different
  • the Galaxy view helps us see the perfection in everything
  • the keys to overcoming the pain of comparison are love and trust: love yourself more and trust that Universe is giving you exactly what you need
