You Are Not a Formula

You are not a formula

You are Not a Formula

You, the life you are, cannot truly live inside the confines of a formula.

Formulas can help us understand why things are the way they are. A formula takes something and breaks it down into its component pieces, so that we can understand how a number of independent parts come together to create an outcome.

Yet, any formula that becomes a lifestyle will limit Life. 

Life becomes formulaic not fluid.

It’s true, a recipe for bread is a formula but there are many variables that can affect a loaf. In making a loaf of bread, the oven, altitude, ingredients, human attention and more affect the outcome. In truth, no two loaves of bread are alike.

We searched Personal growth formulas on google and it spit out over two million references. That’s quite a few formulas to learn and grow by.

Formula’s like The Enneagram or Human Design  can have great value in terms of assisting someone’s personal growth. However, if one frames their perception of themselves or others exclusively, constantly through one of those lenses, they and everyone around them will become stuck inside a frame missing the wholeness of life.

It is critically important to know when to drop a formula and be present to what is. Sometimes applying a formula to a circumstance takes away from what is really going on. We can become blinded by formula and miss the powerful truth unfolding itself in front of us or within us.

We like to apply formulas to life and we think the formula is life. The formula is dead. It’s only meant as a tool for understanding, not to live by.

Formulas for personal growth were always designed as stepping stones to take us from one state of being toward another. If we keep living in the same formula of perception, we will create a repeat pattern of life resulting in frustration maintaining the presence of old wounds.

So, we invite you have some fun with these questions-

  • How many formulas are you living by?
  • Are they serving you?
  • Is it time to surrender your formulas and trust the un-formulaic miraculous within you to create your life.

We’d love to hear from you. Please share below.

In love

Healing My Inner Jackal

Healing My Inner Jackal

I’ve always had a passion for children’s literature that told about faraway places and magical worlds. These treasures were my lifeboat when I was young. Immersed in a book, I felt I was soaring through lands where anything was possible.  So, I decided to write my own.

And my inner jackal began nipping at my heels.  Saying, “you’ve never written a children’s book before, what makes you think you can?” Or the one that remembers all the times a teacher returned my assignments with what was “wrong” without encouragement.

Do you know what it’s like to hear the jackal inside you?  The one’s who says you’re not good enough, don’t know enough, aren’t capable?

We each have an inner jackal nipping at our heels trying to keep us from evolving into the amazing beings we truly are.

Whenever my jackal arose, I looked it in the eye and said, “it’s okay, I love this story more than I fear your judgment beloved jackal.”  So, I wrote and wrote and asked for feedback and wrote some more.  Through love and action, I’m healing my inner jackal.

My book, Not So Little Cora is now in the hands of a superb writer, editor and dear friend Will Wilkinson, who is lovingly honing my story to make it sing.

Will has a new book called, Now or Never: A Time Traveler’s Guide to Personal and Global Transformation. I hope you’ll read it, for we share the same intention- to help create a thriving future for our children.
I’ve spent my lifetime preparing for now.  Each of us has.  We are all at a precipice where we can either rest in the status quo of our lives or courageously risk living our true heart’s desire.
As a dear friend of David’s said to him, “what have you got to lose?”

He answered, “nothing.” And the actions he took completely changed his life.

I’ll let you know when Not So Little Cora is available. She’s a wise little being who loves life and hasn’t lost connection with her inborn spirit.

We’d love to hear your response.

Time to Surrender

photo © David C Mackenzie

It’s time to surrender our Will and be lead by the Divine.

There are many ways we protect ourselves from the greatness of life and possibilities that surround us. One way is by creating negative self-fulfilling prophecies that block our divine expression.

We have seen what happens when we create negative self-fulfilling prophecies, the kind where you have a bad feeling in your gut and some form of negative outcome comes true.

What negative self-fulfilling prophecies are running inside you that have been let loose and never ended that are in the way of your connection to your sacred blueprint and the rich passionate abundant and creative life you know is possible?

Have you had an imagined fear or a negative belief that you let run the show?

These negative self-fulfilling prophecies feel like a subtle friction that show up as a form of doubt where we forget about our sacred connection.

What can we do to move beyond that friction?

We can choose to call in a blessing to the noisy self -destructive negative creative patterns that cause us to stumble and feel like we can’t get to the state of the most loving and exciting vision of our lives.

Feel these places of friction, doubt and imaginary fear where there is no evidence to back it up. When you feel into those places and that line of energy and honor their presence then say the following prayer.

Prayer for Ending Negative Self Fulfilling Prophecies

As you address the fear say:

“Bless You and No More- I declare these energies to be complete and ask that these systems be replaced with love, wholeness, and holiness once again within me where the sacredness of this body comes home to itself.

Unlimited by my willfulness on this day, in this moment, I surrender my will in all the ways I protect myself from the greatness of life that surrounds me.

I release my will to reunite with the godhead, our Father, Mother, God. I let go and allow my love to prevail within me all the way to my cellular, electrical and structural fields.

I ask this for the highest good of all concerned. And to all of my ancestors I extend this blessing the reuniting of the holy of holies I am experiencing for it is my true birthright to be reunited with the source of all life, holy of holies, God, the Divine.

I offer this as a gift to all beings connected to me wherever they may be and whatever form they are in.

I take this breath now knowing that the spirit of resurrection comes within me and I rise up and step away from the deadness I have carried thinking it was my life.”

In love,

Why a Beauty Retreat?

Tree in Pyramid

Last week we visited the Pyramid Cañada de la Virgen an Otomi site a half hour outside of San Miguel. This moment of the life force of Beauty in nature was deeply moving to us both.

Extending Holiday Offer into 2017-Awakening Into Beauty Retreat

We are extending our Holiday Offer for the Awakening Into Beauty Retreat because we feel that Beauty is the necessary energy needed at this time in the world.

The response to the Awakening Into Beauty retreat is heartening. Some have said they are so grateful we are doing this because they really need it and San Miguel is an inspirational setting.

In another conversation, as a friend asked “Why would the Beauty Retreat change my life and make it better?”

Here is our answer.

Beauty is not just an idea, it’s a living energy that wants to dance us. It connects us to the greater life we are and that surrounds us and allows possibility to unfold in our lives.

Through the processes we have designed each person will see and feel the ways they have conditioned or edited their connection to beauty. You will liberate your heart, your sacred intelligence to be in creative union with the life force beauty is.

Why?

When we have distanced ourselves from beauty our lives begin to shrink. We begin to feel that we are slaves to our lives rather than creators who are free and sovereign.

Through the lens of beauty, you can have curiosity and joy, even in the midst of challenging times. You will leave with a renewed connection to the greater life you so that you can allow new opportunities, relationships and abundance to occur in ways you could not engineer.

At Wisdom Rx, we know this really works because we’re doing this. If beauty and curiosity are not present in our lives real transformative healing is slowed down or doesn’t happen so Come and Transform through Beauty with us.

We love journeying with you,

David and Susan

Sharing Beauty Stories

leaf with Dew

 

We wanted to share a blog written by our partner in Journey’s In Transformation, Gwen Mazer, so you could have taste of the heart and passion she has for Beauty. In March 2017 our RetreatAwakening Into Beauty centers around Beauty from the inside out where we can breathe in its essence and connect with our source.

FINDING  BEAUTY
by Gwen Mazer

Beauty knows no bounds, she is to be found everywhere.  She awes us with her stunning variations, in the spirit of nature with a walk in the woods, the infinite shapes and colors to be found in a flower, the fluttering of a hummingbird, the sparkle and roar of the sea. We are moved by the symphony of light, the sunrise, sunset, touched by the brilliance of the moon on a crystal clear night, surprised by the colors in a puddle after the rain.

Beauty manifests as joy in the delight and wonder of a gaggle of little children, the sound of their chatter, the colorful bouquet of their assorted clothing, and the air of innocence as they go ambling down the street hand in hand.

Beauty takes our breathe away with the fluid movement and grace of a ballerina, thrills us with the soaring flight of a modern dancer as he leaps gracefully through space, sends us into a moment of heavenly grace on the notes of music exquisitely played.

Physical beauty can be joyful to behold, can cause pain and anguish if we indulge in comparison or mistake glamour for real beauty. It can unravel our minds with desire, rage, envy, or lust. It can cause us to lose our senses, to forget the real source of beauty the light that shines from within.

In beauty is the embrace of true connection, serenity, compassion, love of the face lined with years of living, the delight of a baby born brand new, the eros of true love found and consummated, empathy, caring and deep intention to understand the feelings of another.

Beauty of being is discovered in our vulnerability, when we are willing to be truly seen by another. Beauty is found in our willingness to explore our perceptions, our thoughts, when we let go of our ideas of the other and realize we are all part of the human family.

Beauty can visit in unexpected moments, times when we have been cracked open enough to hear the quiet whisper of our inner voice and we listen. We may be guided to a fork in the road, to a path untraveled. We trust beauty to be our guide and travel onward as she lights our way towards wisdom and well-being.

We’d love to hear what’s beautiful in your life. Please share below.

Yours in Beauty,
David and Susan

Woundology

Carolyn Myss, who we’re fans of, uses a great reference phrase- Woundology.

She describes how we can become addicted to and create an entire identity around all the bad stuff and the corresponding wounds that have ever happened to us.

Sometimes in our desire to heal a wound we become addicted to forever solving the problem that never seems to go away. We can honor our wounds by placing them on a sacred altar.

What altar you might ask? 

An altar built from a compassionate understanding that horror happens and its presence can be overcome and exceeded through the power of compassionate awareness and love.

When that happens the end of the wound occurs. And we are set free from the ache of the past. The memory remains but the sorrow dissipates and turns into compassionate wisdom.

Join us in ending being run by the past so we can create a future in love.

What wound will you place on this sacred altar?
