How To “Be Who You Are”

Be who YOU are.

A few days ago, I tuned into Hay House Radio on my way home from work (which is my normal routine) and was pleased to hear Anita Moorjani being interviewed by Diane Ray.  Anita authored the book “Dying To Be Me”, in which she tells the story of her near death experience while in a coma caused by terminal cancer and how she has used what she learned during her NDE to heal her life.  Her story is truly inspiring and I encourage you to look her up!  I’ve heard Anita speak a few times and, although I’m sure she has said this during every talk, on this particular day the message that kept jumping out at me was “Be who you are!”  In a synchronistic twist that emphasized the point, the license plate on the car in front of me while listening to this interview was BHUYUR.  Message received, Universe!

Lessons Learned from the Hay House World Summit

If you’ve read a bit of my blog, you’ve probably figured out that I’m a fan of Hay House.  I listen to Hay House Radio on my commute to and from work each day (the only reason I’ve found to be grateful for the hour long drive each way) and this is the second year in a row I’ve had the pleasure of listening to the Hay House World Summit.

Learning to Appreciate the Small Things

Learning to appreciate the small things

Thursday marked six months since the car accident that shook up my world.  (For those that don’t know, the resulting injury was a broken pelvis.)  Life has pretty much returned to normal with the exception of a little back pain that I’ve become used to but serves as a reminder whenever I notice it.  Although I don’t like the pain I do appreciate the reminder, because I learned some important lessons while healing from the accident and don’t want to let myself fall back into old patterns.  I feel that accident was a wake-up call from the Universe, alerting me that life is too short to not do what I love, showing me that I have a huge support group of friends and family, and highlighting all the small things in my life that I didn’t realize I was grateful for.

Blue October at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA 03/29/14 – Justin encouraging the crowd to sing along.

There’s something magical about singing along with a band and hundreds of other concert-goers, it feels like you’re connected with everyone in the room. For me, it’s similar to singing along with hymns in church, or chanting together with a room full of kundalini yoga practitioners. It’s a spiritual experience. And I love it!
