Who Are You Right Now?
re-defining ourselves through self empowerment
How do you define yourself? Do you define yourself as your work? If you are a lawyer do you cross examine your family? If you start defining yourself as your vocation, your behavior your role in your family you will become what you are labeling yourself.
Perhaps when you make mistakes you refer to yourself as a screw up or you may refer to yourself as a procrastinator. If we start labeling ourselves it can become a self fulfilling prophecy and can color our lives which determines our future behavior. We all make mistakes, we all procrastinate but it does not make us procrastinators or any other label for that matter. Labeling ourselves can effect us permanently both good and bad.
Do you feel gifted? Well I have news for you. We are all gifted. If you believe this you will feel a sense of confidence and empowerment you may have never felt before. This is the day I want for you. You are not what your past is. You are what you are right now. I invite you to sit down and make list of "who are you really". Describe yourself in precise detail. Really take time with this and be very conscious while you do this. You will see a lot of negative beliefs but, you will also see a lot of good things too. Now that you can see who you think you are and how you define yourself make another list with all the traits of the person you want to be. Do this in the exact total detail as you did the first list. Take your time with this. Go inside and find this person. This is who you will be if you are committed to make your life better. This is the person you need to be. You should fuse with this person. If you were this person how would you move, how would you breath what would your posture be, how would you treat other people? Embrace how you would talk, walk, move and soon you will see your basic behavior start to change. You will become this person and before long your entire identity will change. But, you must decide to commit to this otherwise it may not work.
The way you define yourself will determine where you will go in the future and if you do not like the way you are defining yourself today, you do have the ability to change it right now.
Here's to your new future
Have a sensational week!

Vision is the Art of Seeing The Invisible
You don't need an explanation for everything.
Recognize that there are such things as miracles,
events for which there are no explanations.
Later, knowledge may explain those events quite easily.
The fact that you can plant a seed and it becomes a flower,
share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's,
smile at someone and receive a smile in return are common miracles.
Your duty to yourself is to believe that for which you have sufficient evidence,
and to suspend your judgment when you have not.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Some things have to be believed to be seen.
Don't believe in miracles, depend on them.

To Screen or Not To Screen
A Prostate PSA
Statistically speaking men often don't go to the doctor unless there is something really wrong. Cancer is one of those things that can go really wrong, but no one goes to the doctor, with the suspicion of cancer, it is often symptoms that deviate from the norm that cause one's alarm to go off. Cancer can affect various parts of the entire body, for men, the most common being prostate cancer.
Traditionally, screening for prostate cancer starts with a blood test called a PSA: Prostate Specific Antigen. Then depending on if that numeric value is raised outside the normal range, further diagnostics would be used to evaluate it. However, there is controversy on whether they may be more harm than help.
Large organizations such as the US Preventative Services Task Force, the CDC, and the American Cancer Society have all determined that it is best to test per individual basis, rather than the routine PSA screening for men over the age of 50. Some suggest that prostate cancer is slow or non-growing, and more often not life threatening. However if red flags are raised due to elevations in PSA's, the further work up can complicate matters and make them worse.
Here are a few symptoms to keep in mind for men and to seek medical attention for  :
- Trouble urinating
- Decreased stream of urine outflow
- Blood in urine or semen
- Swelling in legs
- Pain in pelvic area
- Pain in bones
Remember to take care of your body, be kind to it. Cancer is a disease in which cells are growing out of control. From a spiritual perspective if you are faced with cancer ask yourself: What's eating at you? Deep hurt, secret or grief? Consider stating this affirmation:
I lovingly forgive and release all of the past. I choose to fill my life with joy. I love and approve of myself.

Peeling Away Your Layers
finding our true self through self exploration
Trees grow up through their branches and down through their roots into the earth. They also grow wider with each passing year. As they do, they shed the bark that served to protect them but now is no longer big enough to contain them. In the same way, we create boundaries and develop defenses to protect ourselves and then, at a certain point, we outgrow them. If we don’t allow ourselves to shed our protective layer, we can’t expand to our full potential.
Trees need their protective bark to enable the delicate process of growth and renewal to unfold without threat. Likewise, we need our boundaries and defenses so that the more vulnerable parts of ourselves can safely heal and unfold. But our growth also depends upon our ability to soften, loosen, and shed boundaries and defenses we no longer need. It is often the case in life that structures we put in place to help us grow eventually become constricting.
Unlike a tree, we must consciously decide when it’s time to shed our bark and expand our boundaries, so we can move into our next ring of growth. Many spiritual teachers have suggested that our egos don’t disappear so much as they become large enough to hold more than just our small sense of self—the boundary of self widens to contain people and beings other than just "me." Each time we shed a layer of defensiveness or ease up on a boundary that we no longer need, we metaphorically become bigger people. With this in mind, it is important that we take time to question our boundaries and defenses. While it is essential to set and honor the protective barriers we have put in place, it is equally important that we soften and release them when the time comes. In doing so, we create the space for our next phase of growth.
