Feeling Weighed Down? How to Rise Up:


donkeyEmotions have a way of reminding us that we are all under the same universal influence….the psychological mind. Apparently, whether you own a bank or your money seems to be playing hide and seek in some unknown place, we all do this thing calling thinking. And the thoughts we dwell on determine how we feel. As soon as you believe a thought, it finds its way into your consciousness and anchors itself in. And it will do its work to manifest itself fully if you give it the attention it needs.

Let’s imagine that you are thinking about an unpleasant experience that happened a day before. If you dwell on these thoughts long enough, you will run all the conversations plus all the details of the event in your mind. And sooner than later, you will experience the same emotions you experienced, if not worse. The more you think about what went wrong, the more you feel weighed down. So, you conclude that you are actually weighed down. But are you really weighed down in the actual realm of things? Yes, you might feel heavy or uncomfortable, but let’s examine this conclusion further.

To begin, what does it really mean to be weighed down? It means that you are carrying something heavier than you are. Okay, let’s further examine these negative thoughts that we conclude weigh us down.

Questions: While these thoughts dwell in our minds, do they really have quantitative weight? Can you put them on a scale to determine their weight?

No, you can not. They are just thoughts whose life and then weight are generated from the attention you give them. The more attention you give them, the more life they have. Yet, both your attention and these thoughts are in you. You are neither. You are the observer of them both. So, do you still believe you are really weighed down? What’s really important in your life if it is not feeling okay no matter what is going on in your world?

You wanna know more? In my book, The Sanity Warrior: Becoming the Authority of Your Experiences, you will not only read real life stories that will inspire you to move forward no matter what, but you will also learn proven psychological tools, among others, to transcend negative thinking and negative feeling.

Remember, effortless progress is achieved when we learn how to raise above the ego and its negative manifestations in our lives.

What do You Think About Loss? An Inspirational True Story


“Loss gives us a chance for an upgrade. ~ Jacinta M

Some time in December 2000, I flew from Kosovo to the UK and dropped off 10 suitcases of my “stuff,” at a friend’s house in London. I then proceeded to Uganda to be with my family for Christmas. I had been accepted by the University of Hull, where I was to begin pursing an MBA in January 2001.

The 10 suitcases included all the stuff I had accumulated during the two years I had worked in Kosovo–with the United Nations. In the suitcases were jewelry worth thousands of dollars, classy suites, dresses, shoes, crafts and a large music system. My friend Jeff promised to store my stuff in his house until I returned from Uganda.

A few days after arriving in Uganda, I called Jeff just to check in. We spoke briefly and he promised to call me back as soon he got home, but he never did. I waited for a few days and called him back and got his voice mail. A week before I traveled back to England, I called him everyday because he had also promised to pick me up from the airport, but his phone was off. When I got to London, I went straight to his apartment and his brother opened the door. “Jeff is not here and please do not come back here looking for him.” His brother screamed and then slammed the door closed. I went back several times to try and get my stuff, and the brother promised to kill me if I showed up at his door again.

Long story short, I lost everything. All I had was a small back-pack with a tooth brush, a pair of sneakers, a pair of jeans, a tee-shirt and a few other things.

 Why am I Telling YOU this Story?

I was sad for about a week, and then let it go. In a few weeks, I realized that losing my stuff was actually a blessing in disguise. I didn’t have enough space in my hostel room to store more than a suitcase. I was a student and had to dress and live like one. So, if I had all those suitcases it would be more of an inconvenience. And having no clothes gave me a chance to buy more trendy fashions that were also suitable for students. This is when I came up with the quote, “Loss gives us a chance for an upgrade.”

From then on, I wrote many quotes to reflect on whatever was going on in my world. When I read these quotes, they do not only inspire, but also humble me to remember that there is something bigger than my person-hood that’s in control of my life. I also realize that beyond my human knowledge, Grace, has my back.

How We Create Insanity: An Excerpt from my upcoming book – “The Sanity Warrior”


Quote-by-Moe

Insanity begins by creating stories that are delusional: delusional in the sense that we normally don’t have practical evidence of our conclusive thoughts. For instance, we predict our future based on what happened in the past, or based on stories of other people. We also base our future predictions on present experiences and conclude with certainty that our lives will manifest the same way they are manifesting now. What’s interesting is that as we engross our minds in these predictions, we develop profound beliefs about our futures, and just like magic, our futures manifest as we predicted. So, we literally create our present and future realities as we continue to emotionally and mentally visualize experiences rooted on false facts. And because we’ve been given the free-will to think and visualize as we please, we’ve also been given the power to create our realities. But we forget or neglect this truth and blame everyone and everything out of ourselves for our experiences. Yet, we create our own suffering: because suffering is a personal inner experience (call it an emotion) that we consciously or unconsciously choose to feel. 

To summarize the preceding precepts, we live insanely because we’ve forgotten who we truly are, and what we are capable of. We forget, or are never convinced that our thoughts are powerful—and that they create. We neglect that no one and nothing has power over our emotions, except our own choices. We forget the basic truth that we cannot control anyone else but ourselves. Moreover, people are always changing their approach towards everything they do. Today someone might be kind and loving, and tomorrow he/she could be rude and/or sad. The more comfortable we get with our environments and the people we deal with, the more we relax our guard and reveal what’s inside of us. What’s inside depends on the number, diversity and intensity of experiences that someone has had all their lives; the related beliefs they’ve developed about their lives, life, and the world in general, plus relationships. What’s inside each one of us is complex. Therefore, regardless of how knowledgeable anyone is in subjects like psychology and/or human behavior, he/she can never be at the same pace with what consistently influences people to perceive and act the way they do.

Unfortunately, we go about life trying to change people; blaming them for being who they are, expecting them to love and accept us for who we are; thinking that we have the power to influence their actions, and that they owe us what we want to experience. When we believe that anyone owes us what we want to experience, then we have literally given them the power to choose our experiences based on what they know. We gain this mentality when we forget or negate that we experience who are. There is nothing without perception; also implying that if you don’t perceive something that “thing” does not exist in your reality. Because perception is a projection, we perceive according to what we have already created in our inner worlds: what we believe, what we consistently think about, and the stories we’ve created.

Therefore, if you don’t perceive it, it doesn’t exist. That’s why sometimes when you are crying over something, other people could celebrate over it. And it’s because we are all different—we have different opinions. Hence, everyone is doing the best they can with the mental, emotional and spiritual resources they’ve created within themselves. This also implies that what people do is their business. It’s their idea of expression and experience. So, it is insane to stress over what people do; considering that we have a choice to perceive things as we want, or decide not to experience what we don’t want. It’s because of this gift of free-will that God awarded us that we have also created a world of sorts. Sorts, in that the experiences we all individually create are so drastically different; some are extremely pleasurable if perceived that way, and others, sorrowful. It takes more than wishful thinking to stay connected to our true nature: a nature that consistently reveals its uniqueness through the selection of our perceptions and hence experiences.

How to Raise your Vibration Above Negativity:


I’m sure that you’ve been hearing it everywhere. Our vibrations, or the pattern of our thoughts, attitudes and actions, are what create our realities. If we want to change what we experience then we need to change our vibrations. There are a million ways to do this but here’s an exercise that that has stood out for me.

  1. Every morning before you get out of bed, lie down straight facing up. Uncross your arms and legs to let the energy flow freely. Place your palms next to your thighs.

  2. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.

  3. As you breathe in, imagine that you are breathing in pure positive energy, and breathing out all the negativity.

  4. Go through the exercise for at least 5 minutes.

  5. At the end of the breathing exercise, imagine a pink light penetrating your body through the top of your head. Imagine the light spreading to every inch of your being—from your brain to your toes. Then, imagine a white light surrounding your body.

  6. Take another deep breath and say this statement. “I seal this process with divine love and wisdom.”

If you do this every day, you will notice positive changes in your experiences.

If you want to learn more about how the invisible world determines our vibrations, and how you can ignite your true-self to live life on your terms, check out the book – Do Not Force It, Tap The Good: How to Tap Into One’s Inner Infinite Intelligence, Develop a Profound Positive Mindset, and Live Life on his/her Terms.

If you are looking for a good inspirational relate-able book, What’s a Little Wind?” is an amazing book to consider.

1. Tell us about yourself and what you do.

I was born in Seattle Washington. When I was five yrs old, my parents moved to Rochester New York. After a few years living in New York, I decided to go to Orlando, Florida, a sunny place, with better weather where I could pursue my comedy and acting career. After living in Florida for 4 yrs, I learned that the television and film industry in Miami was blooming. So I moved to Miami and lived there for six yrs.

In 1998, I moved to Los Angeles to further my career in Acting and Comedy. I have lived in Los Angles for the past 15 yrs.

I am an actor and comedian. I love Stand-up comedy; and have been doing that for over 20 yrs. I also produce webi-sodes and pod-casts.   Additionally, I am an author of a motivational-spiritual book titled–“What’s a Little Wind?”

 2. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I have always wanted to write. I started by writing Jokes for my comedy routine with impressions, then a sitcom. I then realized that I really wanted to write a book about my life that would also inspire, and empower others. This is when I embarked on writing the book, What’s a Little Wind?” 

3. What do you think is unique about you as an author? What makes you stand out in the crowd of authors?

Having grown up in the 1960s and 70s, I understand the social positive structures and norms that made life fun and refreshing back then. This is some of what I embrace in my writing. I also blend in my humor and old fashioned values that everyone can relate to- especially in this era where technology is taking over humility and personable communication, in a world bombarded with negativity.

4. What inspired you to write this book?

I went to a motivational seminar by Joel Bauer in July 2013 where he indicated that everyone has a book in them. So I thought about it, and a month later I tapped into my creativity and started writing the book. And I have to admit that writing this book has been one of the most inspiring things that I’ve done in my life.

5How long did it take you to write this book?

4 months.

6. When did you publish this book?
