How to Revive Your Spirit

Nothing we do with so much heart and intention is completely lost. There is something you gained from the experience it - identify and build on it. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id9163/diversefriendsthumb.jpg
On October 15th, 2008, I found myself hovering over a glittering Buenos Aires, expansive and golden from where I sat perched in the night sky. As I peered out the window, nervous with excitement, I wondered which cluster of lights illuminated my future nest. 
 
I had never been more open than when I took off boundlessly to Buenos Aires. Yet, months later, I found myself back in a cold, gray New York City with a broken heart, no money, and no clue how to bounce back.
 
Moving to Buenos Aires was the result of years of meditation, coaxing and savings. It had begun two years prior while I was still working in a cubicle job that stifled me. 
 
At that time, Argentina wasn’t a real place—it didn’t yet have teeth and bones or a pulse. It was an ethereal representation of where my life would begin, if I could just get there. When I was in despair, I’d search Google and daydream. What I found blended together into a romantic and promising visual feast. I felt in my heart that Argentina held something for me. It would be the place where I’d finally find and live my truth.  
 
By the Winter of 2007, I’d made a secret plan to move there. I quit the cubicle job, switched careers and went freelance all at once, an experience that gave me courage to head into the unknown. By June 2008 I had a ticket, and I started to tell people about my plan to move to the Southern Hemisphere.  I was ready to follow my heart and see where it led. 
 
Buenos Aires welcomed me with open arms. I made friends quickly and began to host dinner parties and establish a routine. On top of it all, an acquaintance from NYC had joined me at the last minute, and I was falling in love. I gave thanks for having the courage to free up my life, to get over my fears enough for this all to be possible. I was actively creating the life I wanted.
 
Unfortunately, it was the end of 2008 and things were falling apart. The economy in the States had plummeted, and so had the possibility of establishing a company to support my life in Argentina. Despite my desire for my relationship to grow, it had begun to cool. As his departure date grew near, it was clear we’d be saying goodbye.  
 
Feeling alone and unsure, I returned to the States. My friends and family welcomed me with enough warmth to eclipse the Argentine sun, yet I felt disconnected, unhinged, mechanical. There was nothing to do but fight to put my life back together, and so I got to work. 
 
Within two months, I had a job and an apartment in Brooklyn again. While I was grateful, I couldn’t help but feel that I’d reverted back to an old life. All of my daring and faith had landed me right back where I’d started. I couldn’t see the value in Argentina. I felt I had failed myself, and I was afraid to have a dream again.
 
Last week I launched OPEN (One Person’s Evolving Narrative), a video series and blog that explores the relationship between self discovery and travel. We sponsor individuals in transitional moments to go on a trip of their choosing that has the potential to reveal something about themselves and where they are in life, on a personal level. The mission of OPEN is to give the gift of travel, and help individuals take big steps in their personal journeys.
 
OPEN is a continuation of my lifelong desire to see more of this world, and help others do the same. In order to give OPEN life I had to first change my story about Argentina—from a heart-breaking failure to a valuable experience that's brought me to where I am. Changing my outlook has allowed me to reconnect with my purpose and pursue my dream again.
 
So how does one revive their spirit after a perceived failure? What do you do when the journey does not turn out as expected? Here are a few practices that have helped me recharge:
 
1. Find the benefit in the "failure." Nothing we do with so much heart and intention is completely lost. There is something you gained from the experience it - identify and build on it.  
 
2. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Vulnerability can be uncomfortable, yet you're never more open to tap into yourself and identify what's most important and let that inform your next steps.  
 
3. Trust the process. Though things might not have turned out as you’d hoped, there is a reason why you ventured out in the first place, and a reason why it turned out as it did.  Accept the state of things so that you can move forward.
 
4. Surround yourself with people who know and believe in you. They will be your sounding board and remind you of who you are when you lose sight.
 
5. Record your journeyjournal, blog, document your thoughts and experiences. Being able to look back and remember yourself and your journey as you regain your strength is invaluable. It's a wonderful way to dreamscape your future.

    Have your chakras aligned and balanced, preferably by someone skilled in this science and skill (chakra balancing). Kindly but firmly request or demand that the entity leave your body.

    Q: I would like to know what I can do to get my boyfriend back? It's been 5 months since we've been broken up, I have trust issues. I texted him form another number. I love him dearly though. It's as if we've been broken up since yesterday, I cannot get him off my mind or out of my system. I have to have my Papa Bear back!

    A:

    You must first work on your trust issues. No one wants to be in a relationship with someone that does not trust them. This is a sign from the Universe that you need to do some self improvement. Most people with trust issues do not love themselves, and have a fear of being vulnerable. You must love yourself, and be able to be vulnerable to attract the kind of love you want. This is your opportunity to clean up this negative energy in yourself. If you do not, this will keep happening to you. It's time to love yourself, and then you will get your man! You can try to call him and tell him you miss him, and you want to work on the relationship. If he is open he will respond. Tell him you know you have issues and you are working on them. If he does not respond, work on yourself anyway. This is about you not him. You can do it!
    Sending love and light!

    Q: If you could briefly answer this question I would appreciate it as it ties in with a question I asked you previously. I've read your Mental Science, Life Purpose, as well as your Money, Wealth, and Prosperity E -books. I am reading them all for a 2nd time. I'm a person of future thought and I like to set big but reasonably attainable goals for myself. However, my progress has been rather slow over the years. And I'm wondering if it is the result of having too many goals. I aim to reach a level of mastery as a musician, writer/author, martial artist, and real estate entrepreneur. These are all things I'm passionate about. More importantly, I want to travel the world pursuing music full-time, but the financial aspects of my life will greatly be benefited by real estate, and my health, focus, and fitness will be heightened and maintained through martial arts, and I also want to write. I only ask you this because you are successful, and so well-versed in so many areas. I feel pulled in so many directions at times, and feel like I need to just focus on one thing at a time. It seems like the most successful people in our society are those who focused on one thing and gave it their all. Please advise.

    A:

    A lot of goals are not bad, however, these goals must be prioritized based upon importance to you. Personally, I'd work my way up the ladder of goals, accomplish my smaller goals first so as to build up momentum, and to establish a resume of accomplished goals. Simply see yourself doing all that you desire, Beloved. You never know, all these goals of yours may be tied in to one another. It's like that for myself. Writing is my greatest outlet these days, because it allows me to express my passions: herbs, health, relationship, astrology, inspiration, law, money-finances, spirituality, etc. Start small and work your way up! Thank you for your patronage of my work.

    Q: Do you believe a marriage can be healed? My husband has asked for a divorce and has begun dating women. I love him and would do practically anything for him, but he says he does not love me.

    A:

    There's not much you can do when another person claims to not love you. All you can do is love yourself and still love your husband and wish him the best in life. Release him! Don't stop him from what his heart desires to do (even if it hurts you in the process). LET GO and move on! If your husband is meant for you, he will come back to you. If he is not meant for you, then so be it. Take and remember the love you shared together and move forward with an open heart.

    Live in the moment and be thankful for all that you have in life at present. Think positive and loving thoughts during this time. Remember, your thoughts create your reality and destiny.

    Therefore, only hold good, loving thoughts of your husband.

    Peace and Love
