What No One Tells You About Your Special Gifts

We could spend a lifetime searching and never recognize our special gifts. It’s not that we don’t have any, it’s just that we don’t know how to see what they are. Once discovered, these gifts are able to guide your life and allow you to stand in your power.  But the focus as children is to fit into the norm, to develop abilities that are sanctioned by parents, schools, jobs, and other social entities.This is misleading, for what may be necessary for a certain environment may not have anything to do with a unique gift someone has. It may be …

Why I’m a Fan of Experience to Build Wisdom

by Diane Wing, M.A. Reading is a great way to gain knowledge. Attending classes is effective to learn a skill or concept. Yet experience is the keystone of wisdom and an essential component of true understanding. Learning to apply knowledge in the context of daily life is where wisdom is built and reinforced. When reading something in a book, it is difficult to perceive how that topic or situation looks and feels in reality. It is written through someone else’s perception of it, whether it is an analysis of data or the person’s own thoughts on something. The same is …

Are You Comfortable in Your Cage or is it Time to Fly Free?

Take the quiz and find out! by Diane Wing, M.A. Feeling restricted is a good indication that you’ve built a cage for yourself. Blaming it on circumstances and the way others have held you back exonerates you from taking responsibility for creating the situation. Saying that your employer, your parents, your children, your significant other, or the lack you feel financially have built the walls you hide behind. These relationships and circumstances reflect how you feel about yourself and your beliefs about what is possible. In some ways, there is comfort in self-imposed confinement. It provides an excuse for not …

Making Your Dreams Come True

by Diane Wing, M.A. It is easier to manifest when what you want is in alignment with your soul’s mission.  A clear definition of your mission, vision, and values goes a long way in putting you on the path to achieving what you want in your life.  Companies do this to define their goals and get everyone thinking in the same direction.  It serves to direct the energy in a purposeful way toward manifesting the desired goal.  When applied to you as a person, it serves as a moral compass to keep you moving on the course you set for …

What is Your Hope for the World?

by Diane Wing, M.A. We are a worldwide community. It begins with our little, personal space in the vastness and flows out, touching everyone and everything. Each person’s thoughts, emotions, and actions have an effect on every other person and living being. We tend to focus on what is best for us in our own lives and how we can improve ourselves. Let’s take it a step further and consider how the ways we improve have an impact on the global community. As we create hope for ourselves, how does that radiate out to improve the world at large? Start …

Stand-up to Your Harshest Critic…Yourself!

by Diane Wing, M.A. The world can be harsh. On social media, book reviews, Quora, in person, opportunities abound to be criticized for every thought and action. Your situation may also invite criticism from family, friends, colleagues, and bosses.  Even when you’re doing what you think is right, there is the potential for someone to say that there’s a better way or that they don’t like the way you’re approaching the task. With all of the critical bombardment, it’s not surprising how easy it is to go into self-critique mode. This mindset results from: – Fear of being criticized. The …

Don’t Base Your Future on the Past

by Diane Wing, M.A. We live in a different world today. You are a different person than you were last year or even last month. Things grow and change, and using self-awareness and intention, it’s possible to do so along with it. Being in the flow calls you to modify what you want your life to look like. Those who continue to seek goals in accordance with the way they were in the past and what they wanted back then, coupled with the way the world used to be, are cheated out of growth and a happier way of being. It results in …

How to Gain Resilience and Personal Power

by Diane Wing, M.A. Nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable. The wheel of the life turns and the way we weather the change is the key to finding our destiny. The natural rhythm of life ebbs and flows, waxes and wanes. Life has its ups and downs. There are times when we build toward a goal and a time to rest. There are times when we need a standstill to contemplate what has gone before and what is yet to come. Nature has its seasons, with each giving a specific energy. Spring is for new growth; Summer is the …

Increase Your Strength by Doing It Your Way

by Diane Wing, M.A. We learn new methods, techniques, and information with every book we read, experience we have, or class we take. Often, we are required to learn someone else’s approach to the topic. It negates the student’s own perspective in exchange for the information. When we discover that the methods do not work for us, we blame ourselves, thinking that we are unable to use the information effectively. Maybe we did not understand fully. We think we just do not have the capacity to learn the information, thereby diminishing our own strengths. This may be true of something like calculus, but …

Looking at the World Through Eyes of love

by Diane Wing, M.A. Emotions color our world and guide our view of life, nature, and those around us. Love transforms the world to a higher vibration, bringing with it respect, care, and health. Love allows us to see the beauty of the spirit inside the plant, animal, and human kingdoms. It brings compassion and the desire to nurture. Hate brings destruction, illness, and harm. Negative emotions such as hate and anger reflect the ugliness and fear within us and give the perspective that the world is a terrible and dangerous place, as are the beings within it. The way we look at the …
