You Are NOT Your Mind (The Secret To Cultivating True Peace, Happiness And Freedom In Your Life)

Today I wanted to share a very heart filled message with you, something that will truly bring AWARENESS into your life if you let it…

Ask yourself this question…

Is your mind in control of you or are you in control of your mind?

Really think about it. No, actually become AWARE of it.

You see what most of this world is lost in, is THEIR MIND. Their reality is made of illusions, of replays, of what ifs, of fears, of hardships, of worry… I can go on and on. And what they are living through is their mind NOT their heart, being or source. Now, I truly believe no matter what faith you have or belief system you go by, what I am about to share is STILL a core ingredient to connecting to that faith. To connecting to this universe, to YOUR inner peace and happiness. Now, for some of you, you might already know this but for many of you this literally has got you thinking as to what I am talking about.

This connection you need to be able to achieve basically anything you want in life is something much deeper than just thoughts. You see, our mind is a TOOL and is not nor will ever be who we are. This is imperative that you know this and build this skill into your life.

Do me a favor right now… Take five minutes to become AWARE of your thoughts. Be the WITNESS to them. I know it sounds a little weird, but trust me just try. Look at what is going on in your mind. Is it negative? Is it positive? Are you replaying the past? Are you playing skits of what could happen in the future? Is it mostly painful experiences or joyous occasions? Be the one who steps back and watches your mind, your feelings, your thought patterns…

……. Now how do you feel?

Did you have a realization? Did you simply become more aware? Did you reach a place in your heart and being that you may have never thought was there?

Just by that simple moment of awareness you have opened SPACE into your heart and being. It probably has brought you to a whole new level of consciousness that you never thought possible. And in all honesty literally just gave you the key to what will bring TRUE happiness, peace and freedom into your life.

That door that you just opened, that space, is the one that will take you to WHEREVER you want to be and whatever you want to accomplish. The moment you became AWARE of your thoughts, of your mind…. you became PRESENT in the now and that my dear beautiful friend is where you always should be.

You must use your mind, your experiences and your life’s journey as a resource to tap into. Not actually live in it. You must live here and now.  In this moment, become fully present, fully aware and do your best everyday to be the watcher, the witness and the one aware of your mind. Once you integrate awareness into your life, being and purpose you become who you truly are. There are no words, no belief nor anything that can place a label on it. It is more than you could ever comprehend. But that is EXACTLY where you need to be.

Have I got you inspired? Did something change in these last couple of minutes of reading this post? Are you ready to take it to the next level?

If you are, here are the two books that I 1000% recommend… they OPENED my eyes, heart and allowed me to become AWARE. These books literally gave me the door to inner peace, happiness and freedom. What I have learned in the last few months through these teachings has been transformational in EVERY aspect of my life. And it would only be right that I share with you all what inspired this post…

A New Earth (Awakening Your Life’s Purpose) By Eckhart Tolle

The Power Of Now By Eckhart Tolle

No matter if you read these books or not, I will say this… MASTER your mind. Start here and now practicing awareness of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, reactions… once you have done this you have gained control. This is where you can literally become so absolutely at peace, the experiences and circumstances in your life become neither good nor bad. And you become so free that anything could happen and instead of fighting against it… you would feel the emotions, accept the situation, take action and move on. All the while with a smile being the result.

I know some of this might not make sense. Maybe it is not all coming together for you just yet. But the first step is to just be open and practice what I shared above. Everything else you need to learn will come to you, no matter if it is through the books above, other books, online, a friend, a video… once you opened the door and become aware you have given yourself permission to learn, grow and become.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did writing it. It is your turn… how do you feel? Did you have a transformation? Do you know and understand these teachings already? Have you practiced them? What emotions went through you? We would really love to hear your thoughts and feelings… please share with us below.

Did this inspire you? Do you feel someone would benefit from this or really would it change someone’s life or day? Pass it along to as many friends online as you can, Facebook, Twitter or wherever your heart’s desire. The message needs to be known, let’s do it together!

I have witnessed this transformation in you over the last few months with what you have learned from these books and it is simply amazing to the difference it has made in you.

I’ve been with you for years now as a friend and business partner, but never before have I seen you absorb what happens in your life, positive or negative and come at it with such peace and well happiness even though some rather negative things have happened!

You are such an inspiration to anyone who has had a pretty rough past but is now living the result of practicing what you preach so to speak.

Luv Ya Girl!!

I am reading The Power of Now at the moment and I finished Marie Forleo’s Make Every Man Want You not too long ago…I’m still new and learning how to “live in the now” but it’s so enlightening I can’t wait to dive in deeper :)

Awww… wonderful to hear Lauren! Would love to chat with you sometime on how you liked it and what it did for you. Awakening Your Life’s Purpose I think is ten times more powerful than The Power Of Now, so definitely read that one next!

Thanks for the awesome post Jenn! I love Eckhart Tolle’s books and both made a profound difference in my life as well. There is another book I am currently reading that is along those same lines: The Passion Test by Janet Bray Atwood and Chris Atwood.

This is a beautiful post and so true that we must MASTER our minds and our lives will change in miraculous ways.

Aloha Jenn,

As I wrote in a previous comment on another inspiring post you did, I get “chicken-skin” (Hawaii slang for goosebumps) when I read some of your writing.

You have tapped into what I call “Universal Truths” and it is powerful stuff….to say the least. Most folks I have known haven’t a clue as to “be here now.” Yesterday is gone, tomorrow isn’t here and really, all we have is NOW.

Thanks again for reminding me that I need to spread the message…the message of love and understanding and compassion.

With much ALOHA,

John Leary III

Once we become aware of our thoughts a whole new world opens up that we didn’t know existed. You start to operate from a different Realm and your life changes in ways you could have never imagined!

Thanks for such an inspiring post!

Erika Olson 12:43 pm - 19th November:

Hi Jenn,

Eckhart Tolle is great, and it is so very hard not to be consumed by our mind and thoughts. I feel like I have to remind myself even as I’m reading his book currently that I need to be in the NOW.

With everything going on in life it’s really hard not to think ahead and worry about the future. Our mind’s do have control, but when I do feel content and calm, only concentrating on the sounds around me at the time, it’s a wonderful feeling.
