Are you clear on CLARITY?  Maybe we need to dissect this a bit more.  Don't worry every person processes information differently.  Perhaps you are the kind of person who needs to first quiet their mind in stillness first. Much of the time we need to be still to understand...


Still not CLEAR?   

BOOM!  What was that a cow?  BOOM!  Was that a truck?  BOOM!  That was a picket fence … Or was it?  Can’t tell?  Why is that?  It is because you are stuck INSIDE OF A TORNADO.

It is called CONFUSION.  No, this is not the trending name that Meteorologists have given any specific climate event… sometimes this is your state of mind, your state of being.  

However, it does NOT have to be. 

Here is the thing… when you RISE UP ABOVE THE TORNADO of confusion…. 

·         You see the cow
·         You see the truck
·         You see the picket fence

You also see what did not ‘hit you’ while spinning inside the tornado --- THE SOLUTION TO YOUR PROBLEM.

Now this may sound silly to you, but if you have ever been so buried within your problem and you have lacked clarity, while compounding your problem with the inflicted barrage of advice from others… then you understand how this is possible.

What also is possible is for you to gain clarity every single time you have a dilemma.
It is often said that sometimes the solutions to our problem are right in front of us.

Although, it is difficult to see the solution if you allow yourself to spin and spin.  The truth is, you do not need to spin.  No one is making you spin – you just need to gather your thoughts to see what is really going on.  

It is from here we can calm our mind, ask our heart the key questions and when we merge the two, we usually get the deeper and more meaningful answers to our life’s big questions.

Your gut has the capability to send you signals, red flags or little tugs of “yes” or “no” – either way.  Usually people like to say they trust their gut… but this only lasts so long until the brain gets in the way and starts to question.  So allow your GUT to drive sometimes… you do not always have to default to your mind. 

This can be another way out of the clouds. 

While we have great respect for the mind, sometimes the best decisions are not made with the mind, they are made with the soul.   

However, we cannot get to the place of tapping into that fountain of wisdom if we keep allowing self-doubt, fear, lack of trust and indecision through paralyzed action to override the sometimes-smarter heart and soul GPS navigation.

Giving yourself the patience, time and above all respect to trust your gut, and the tangible human task of writing out your problem to SEE… you can return to the place of clarity each and every time.

Be gentle with yourself as you do this… and remember you have the power to operate and navigate your life in the most beautiful way by honoring who you truly are.

We have the power to make a difference in this world… but in order to do so as we intend, it all begins with understanding.  Without it, it is not easy to broaden and grow in our ability to relate to one another.

Understanding…it is a term with a definition and actual meaning larger than the number of letters used to spell it.  Understanding the word itself and the context with which we apply the word can help us dissect our own level of understanding before we can even expand conversation beyond the word on a deeper level.  Watch this video so you can see where this blog picks up where the video ends…

Understanding first starts with our own individual applied refining of our ideas about understanding as we continue to define our own capacity for what it means.

Just like people, there are millions of ways to apply understanding from the place where we choose to see it and additionally from where we sit within it.

Is this why there are misunderstandings?

Is this why there is miscommunication?

Can this be why confusion in dialogue can be misconstrued?

Does our lack of understanding block our own capacity to grow and learn from one another?
Does it begin and end with us? 

YES, it is a good start.  However, it is not only one-sided.

Just like anything that is subjective, each unique human may interpret understanding based on the level of where they understand logic, emotion, and context from knowledge, life experience, familiarity of their environment from which they function daily.

This is inclusive of culture, generation, as well as communication choices.  These said choices might be a DEFAULT behavior.  These said choices might be a SELECTIVE behavior.  

Is there a difference?  Absolutely.  How do we know?

Let us start with the basics.  Let’s begin with LINKING the mind and heart with intention and context. 

The written word and the spoken word can be vastly different, even if the exact same words are used.  

You already know this.  Technology has made things challenging.  Especially when words and emojis just do not convey the bigger picture. 

Technology limits our capacity to have conversation in the context of what power a conversation can contain beyond the words to develop understanding into something more than just the sum of it being limited.

When we examine tone, emotion, gesture, eye contact, energy, pausing, phrasing, diction, inflection, and yes -the powerful non-verbal behavior in facial expression, body language, hand gestures, conviction, confidence, and articulation with the understanding component of compassion… words suddenly become more than just words.  

Communication can become more than just an exchange. 

Seeing someone’s truth, with a conversation walking within it can be more than just eye opening, it can open the capacity to learning, growing and reaching further into the understanding sphere.

Understanding has the ability to help us see life through a different perspective, which can actually unite us just comprehending another point of view, staying open to creating even more understanding.  From this place, we broaden our knowledge, as we simultaneously get to extend our own ability to reach others from a new place and alternate angle.

There is power in this.

When we embrace this within, we have the opportunity to learn from one another.
When we learn from one another, we connect.

Now suddenly, understanding linked to the compassion component definition of the word, expands beyond communication and the understanding within it to connect to something greater beyond it illuminates and transcends.

Finally, we reach the great-lost art of conversation.  When we have conversation, we intensify connection when understanding can take on a wholeness and new role.

Why is this important?  We learn more about each other and ourselves.  From here we have a place where relating has the potential for peaceful co-existence within our world.

Our world has the possibility of personal growth.  We just need to understand that it can happen when not only we open our eyes, hearts and minds, but also our own perspective of how far we can seek what is possible.

Okay… so if you are looking for the actual topic of losing 20 lbs… You may want to read this first:   

  However, that blog will lead you back to this video  WATCH NOW:

And these final thoughts…. Take it in and know you can live your healthiest life from the inside out today.

Forgiveness is a gift you give to others.
It is also a gift you give yourself.
When we forgive, we let go and heal,
Which is the best thing for our health.

It isn’t every day we can truly say
We do this work as we should,
But if we are authentic with who we are,
We know it is for the greater good.

So release, be free and then you will see,
You will no longer have regret,
Liberation will find you and you will be
Living your best life yet.
