The 6 Greatest Self-mastery Practices

What currently seems like chaos in the world is only the old defunct systems falling away which is essential as something radically new comes into being. Instead of wrestling with the system or battling the perceived issues in the external world, continue to do the inner work of self-mastery. As you make changes in yourself, change is reflected externally as if by magic. The inside creates the outside. That’s the mastery way of making change in the external world.

The Greatest of all Mastery Practices

Meditation

There are many reasons for maintaining a meditative practice. Taking time out to still your mind is essential for your health. During meditation you practice energy work to nourish, cleanse and re-energise yourself. Meditation is your time to go within and tune into your intuitive inner guidance. You can clear yourself of your day, let go, cut cords and practice forgiveness. During meditation you connect with your Higher Self and set your intentions. Meditation is your time of restoration, healing, creation, connection and inner-tuition.

Forgiveness

If there was only one mastery practice, it would be forgiveness. The practice of forgiveness un-creates negative thought forms. Forgiveness clears perceptions of the past and heals difficult relationships. Forgiveness is healing and creates a clean slate from where you can recreate your universe and all your relationships afresh. Miraculous work can be done with the forgiveness practice of Ho’oponopono. Experience the advanced application of this magical meditation on the forthcoming Self-mastery Meditation Course.

Responsibility

Mastery is taking responsibility for everything happening in your universe. You are the creator of your universe and taking full responsibility is immensely empowering. Anything playing out in your universe that’s not quite according to plan can then be a great source of introspection. When you’ve gained the insights, you can exercise new choices and create afresh, assuring the outcomes you desire.

Discipline

Accomplished athletes, musicians and artists achieve mastery of their skills through the regular discipline of practice and action. Be equally disciplined about your mental energy and meditative practices. Over time, a regular practice of meditation will still your mind and alter your DNA and your universe in a way that is hugely rewarding.

Creating

You are essentially a creator and you create all the time. As you deepen into mastery, you’ll discover your immense creative potential and you will want to create your world consciously through intention and visualisation. Alberto Villoldo describes how the Laika, Inca, Hopi and Mayan people knew that, when they inherited the created world, creation wasn’t finished and that they were supposed to continue the creation process. The elders of these tribes meditate together, envisioning the world they want their grandchildren to inherit. The sages of old called this ‘dreaming the world into being’ (Villoldo, 2005 and 2007). You have the same power, so continue to co-create the world you desire. Continue to create light, good health, peace and joy in the world. Do so through thought-intention, visualisation and by being the light in the world.

Working with the Universal Spiritual Laws

Essential to mastery is a solid understanding and application of the Universal Spiritual Laws. The Laws governing the universe are as natural as the natural laws we are familiar with, such as the Law of Gravity. They are built into the fabric of the universe, reflecting the primary intelligence of the universe and are the guiding principles upon which the whole universe operates. They keep the universe and everything within it, in perfect order. One such Law is the Law of Cause and Effect. When we understand the Universal Spiritual Laws, they can guide us on our path and dramatically speed up our evolution and ascension. It is through the understanding and application of these laws that we can achieve mastery of our lives. These Spiritual Laws form part of the esoteric wisdom teaching of ancient Egypt, Israel, Greece, India, China and the like. Yet, the knowledge of it has somehow stopped being passed down and kept secret. If people knew they are in complete control of their minds and therefore their destiny, they would no longer be controlled by the governing, monetary and media systems of the world. Fortunately, modern quantum physics has also been proving these ancient principles to be accurate. Quantum physics allows for the quantum field of energy; a nothingness from where reality is constructed. The Foundations of Mastery can assist you in deepening into your understanding of these Universal Spiritual Laws. Through the application of these spiritual and natural laws, you can master your own life and create your own destiny.

Self Care is Pro-active Health Care

– Your body is crying out for it

Self Care has recently been emphasised in the Transformational circles as a key practice. We are experiencing change in daily life at such a rapid speed. Self care is an empowering practice and has become more important than ever before. Self care is not a luxury that we attend to in spare moments. It is an essential practice for your wellbeing. Self care is a pro-active investment in your health. There is so much that you can do for yourself. This month’s blog explores what Self Care means and suggests 7 Practical Self Care Practices.

Why Self Care?

In our everyday fast paced life we can experience extremes of busyness, emotional upsets, disturbing news from all over the world and high demands on our time, all adding to keep us in stress mode for way too long. Electronic connectivity means we’re always at hand and the work-life balance becomes blurred. This often goes hand in hand with unhealthy lifestyles – spending too much time indoors, eating fast foods and processed foods and talking with people only on the other side of our gadgets. 

When we become unwell we go to the doctor for medication, handing all our power and responsibility for our own health over to the doctor. Sometimes all it needs is to restore the balance ourselves and only you can do that. We are all going through a healing process at the moment – mentally, emotionally and spiritually. For some, the healing process can be quite intense, with more than one area of their lives feeling challenged – relationships, finance, work, home, health, etc. Inevitably it is part of your growth and evolution process so it is best to embrace it and take care of yourself as you flow through the process. It’s only through self care that you can anchor in and integrate the growth in consciousness that we are experiencing in intense waves in this transitional time we live in currently. 

What Does Self Care Mean?

Self care means giving ourselves a break, spending time with ourselves and bringing much needed care, nurture and relaxation to ourselves. It can mean many different things to different people. We don’t all have the same self care needs. For some it may be doing yoga and keeping a gratitude journal. For others it may be dancing, painting or a walk on the beach. Your own self care needs may vary from time to time. Sometimes all you want is peace and quiet. Other days you may want to reconnect with a friend. It means giving yourself breathing space; time to reflect. It means calming the nervous system so that you can exit the stress mode and enter the rest, digest and relax mode of being. It means attending to the whole of you: mind, body, emotions and soul. It means taking care of your state of health and energy levels proactively.

How Practically Can I Practice Self Care?

Relaxation

Listen to music, have nap, a massage, a salt bath, read a book or simply daydream. Say no to some of those demands on your time and energy. Disconnect from technology – at least for a while. Use technology and social media sparingly and strategically as it can be a real energy drain. Your mind can get overloaded, your emotions impacted and your energy scattered. Only you can manage your own time and energy resources. 

Stillness

Take some quiet time alone to rest, meditate and contemplate. Enjoy stillness and bring some calm to your nervous system. In stillness you can tune into your intuition and open up to your inner guidance – a precious gift.

Movement 

Your body needs gentle movement to release tension. Engage in peace enhancing activities such as yoga, tai-chi or a walk in a green space. Do something playful or spend some time near water such as a lake, river or the ocean, to recharge your batteries.  

Reconnect

  • Reconnect with yourself. Do something that YOU enjoy. Self care means coming home to yourself. This simple practice is essential for your own sense of wholeness. 
  • Reconnect with nature. A daily venture outside will clear the mind and revive the spirit. 
  • Reconnect with the present moment. Life can only be truly lived in the moment. All your senses come alive as the thoughts disappear. 

Creativity

Cook a nourishing meal, garden, paint, enjoy your favourite hobby or learn a new skill. 

Expansion 

Engage in uplifting experiences like watching a beautiful film, a play or a musical. Learn something new or sign up for that course that interests you. Travel somewhere new. Travelling expands the mind, uplifts the spirit and opens you up to a broader, richer spectrum of life. 

Compassion

Stop being hard on yourself. Stop any judgement or criticism about yourself and bring compassion to yourself. Change the critical voice to a compassionate voice. Reflect on your experiences compassionately, retain the wisdom and ditch the judgement. Keep your thoughts and speech about yourself positive to empower and strengthen your body, your mind and your life. Love and forgive yourself, always. 

Pro-active Health

We can take good health for granted, assuming the body will just keep going. Self-care is a pro-active investment in your own health. We are responsible, first and foremost, for our own wellness. Our lifestyle choices regarding food, drink, habits, medication, physical activity, stress-management and leisure activity are primarily under our own control. We have considerable personal power to create the life and wellness we want. For inspiration here are 7 Ways to Boost Your Own Well-being. 

The single overriding objective in wellness is creating constant personal renewal. Energy work is a great way to restore and renew yourself. Make these easy, yet powerful 7 Essential Energy Practices to Ensure Good Health your daily ritual for your proactive health.
