WHY we need STORY

animals-avian-beach-760984We long for connection with all that is curious and creative.

We are creatures who belong to each other for reasons beyond analysis, for it is our heart’s desire and our life’s dream to fulfill a worthy story.

We ache with a need to connect and create or sadly the other is we become numb and silently indifferent.

Yet it is the never-ending and renewed STORY that is forever wanting to grow through us… I urge you, dear storytellers of our time, to be at one with its magical forces. For in truth there is nothing but Story, it is what teaches us and what sustains us as human beings. STORY informs our purpose, but more importantly, it gives humanity its Soul.

Do you have a story wanting to grow through you?

Being YOU!

Being the best YOU eliminates competition and comparisons. The truth is no one can be better at being you, than you!

I have been in the business of helping people identify their authentic self for well over 20 years. It’s been indeed a powerful, rewarding, challenging, and revealing process and I say that with absolute love and compassion.

  • I’ll also add my experience on this journey of self-discovery was the number one issue for most people that I’ve worked with is the limiting core belief of “not being good enough”.
  • This is often masked by what some call “the imposter syndrome”, whose flipside is “I have to be better than everyone else to be accepted”.

The problem with this thinking is one never reaches or even feels their potential for long enough to really grow their inner culture because their true potential lies within themselves and when someone is constantly viewing themselves from an external comparison their inner culture, their magnificence (light) starts to fade away.

So when I say… Being the best YOU eliminates competition and comparisons, I am suggesting you cant do it by looking outside yourself, you must go within. Being the best you is always going to be an inside job, sure we can use tools/practices to aid in that process and that’s why I created the tools I have for people. But the looking outside yourself is really for one reason only… to genuinely connect with other human beings.

Not for the purpose of gain or to copy them or even be better than them. Its to unite with them so we can ALL shine brighter. Of course, I’m not saying we don’t learn from each other because that’s a given.

However, what I am pointing out is “what’s the intention, desire, and motivation behind that need to learn from others?” In a world where we are made to think you have to “be the best” to get ahead, it’s no wonder people have adopted these destructive and disempowering ideas and become blind to the needs of their inner personal culture, essence, spirit, and value.

The truth is no one can be better at being you, than you! You then see that there is no competition, it’s just a figment of your imagination.

So, I will say it again… no one can be better at being you, than you! Which invites the question, Who are YOU?

What are​ Attention and Intention?

What does it take to perfect clarity again and again throughout your life?

It takes “CLARITY of INTENTION” – which simply means placing your attention on how your personality and skill set can add value to the lives of others. It also requires tuning in with the same enthusiasm, heart to heart connection, vulnerability, and openness that you felt at the time of your project’s inception, and then be willing to listen to and observe any synchronicities that present themselves.

Attention and Intention are how you build quality RESONANCE – this means cultivating alignment, hovering around it, reclaiming it and correcting and transforming your behavior again and again – plus watching with honesty and compassion to the what, why and how of all your actions.

You must totally trust that the Unified Field, Your Future Self, and Your Spirit has been informing you of your role as a co-creator in all that you have been creating.

Being in synch with the larger intention (The Field) – will give you the courage to open your heart and mind to social innovation, to speak out even when you are the only person in the room with that perception.

Don’t doubt what you are supposed to be doing – when you align your values and motives to serve the “greater creative impulse”, you begin to see it’s actually facilitating you.

That doesn’t mean you don’t occasionally lose hope, clarity, or inner peace. However it does mean that you know how to regain it, and it always comes down to tuning into something greater than yourself and aligning with the creative impulse, which is moving in the same direction, accompanying you as you go.

How do you achieve this? – By simply meditating each morning for 15 – 60 minutes a day before doing anything else. Contemplating, tuning in, asking, listening and waiting until you are fully relaxed and grateful before you get up and begin the rest of your day. I know that might seem like a long time for some people, but the results are worth it.

You could look at it this way time = live not money – and your Future Self requires you to create some uninterrupted Time and Space each day to ensure you continue to have Clarity of Intention – I encourage you to decided that approximately 4 hours in a week of 168 hours, isn’t really much to contribute to gain the clarity of intention and a deep sense of connection you need to keep on purpose. Also recognizing that the “peak” synchronistic events that you have experienced in life, along with your daily meditation help you maintain your resonance, which in turn allows these synchronistic events to keep occurring organically.

Acknowledging these experiences is a reminder of what’s possible – choose to be in this resonance as often as you possibly can: A co-creative, connected, clear place where your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, conversations and actions are all aligned with your purpose.

Here is a short verse to use when seeking guidance around your co-creation and purpose.

Dear Future Self…

Please show me if this project I want to initiate or be a part of is part of a greater creative impulse, which is authentically correcting and transforming our world – and directly moving toward…

SYNERGY, PEACE, LOVE, PROSPERITY and UNITY.

If it is, I am happy to be an instrument of this conscious evolution and I will generously use my personal empowerment to serve this larger vision. I simply need to know this isn’t just me doing something willfully, independent of a larger purpose and intention.

 

 

Does life really change?

What I LOVED to play as a child… 

When I was with others.

  • I loved, loved, loved going to the Movies.
  • I loved creating characters and stories for my playmates that we could play out together, which had invisible or sometimes visible glamorous costumes (when they were available.)
  • I loved listening to stories that my Nana would share with me from her childhood, while we made seasonal fare – like Pasty Slice or Green Tomato Pickles.
  • I loved playing all my mums “singles” on my little record player and pretending to be a Go-Go dancer with my friends in our lounge room on a Saturday afternoon.
  • I loved watching Disneyland in my freshly washed PJ’s on a Sunday night. Just out of the bath, hair washed and already for the school week ahead.

When I was on my own.

  •  I Loved Drawing
  •  I Loved Baking
  •  I Loved Playing with my dolls and pets.
  •  I Loved thinking up “Ideas” of what I could be when I grew up.

When I was about 5 years old I asked my Nana “what do you call a person who makes women beautiful”. Out of the mouths of babes!

How divinely ordered our life is, clearly it was always my mission in life to reveal the True Beauty of women, to empower women so they can share their creativity and gift with the world so they can share their Story; their True Value, their Life Purpose. 

Can you recall any desires or feelings of memorable moments from your childhood?

What did you LOVE to play as a child? Chances are it’s still the same…

Ideas, Inspiration, Intelligence

architectural-architectural-design-architecture-1143416

An idea or inspiration comes in from the Mind of Creation and drops into our consciousness. If we act on that idea the creative process begins and moves further into our personal being.

It progressively moves into other levels of the Self.

These are the levels – Celestial Self, Spiritual Self, Emotional Self, Physical Self.

1. A seed idea comes in from the Celestial Self (purpose centre)
2. Plants itself in the Spiritual Self (creative centre)
3. Is then often thought about and deeply felt in the Emotional Self (feeling centre)
4. Manifests in the world of form through the Physical Self. (reality centre)

Remembering all the while, that clarity and purity of intention are key in any phase of the creative process.

However, the full activation takes place in the Emotional Realm. It is in the realm of the Emotional Self that we get to really FEEL our creation. The feeling aspect of the creation process is crucial in order for your idea to manifest in the Physical Realm. If you are not able to fully embody the emotion and desire for this creation it will simply stay captive in the upper realms. It is your clarity and pure heartfelt desire that will bring your dream, idea or creation to life.

Sometimes we have to move through our deepest emotions in order to have our dream realized.

Your creations are connected to your purpose in life, it is important that you feel connected to both. A good thing to remember is that your creative impulse comes from your higher heart, not an ego-driven need. Pain, Passion, Power, Purpose – it is through this order of progression that people create amazing results in their life.

The truth of the matter is, its all about how we feel about something that makes it happen.

We each have a unique creative process and that is due to our authentic nature; our archetypes.

What is your creative style, how do you create?

The Human X Factor

There are hundreds of seminars out there today, webinars, coaching online, podcasts and the list goes on.

So ponder this for a moment…

There is a brand new trend in business and social culture emerging and its success will be determined by how and what we are able to provide in products and services that are truly human. Creativity is that thing that is truly human and technology canʼt produce or provide that.

That’s because we are the technology that created the technology – Elizabeth Ellames is all about finding your Human X Factor and then working with that to serve humanity.

That’s our job now, so to speak – in the past, people made things to make life easier, now we have to actually “create a new life” on planet earth that is sustainable for all its inhabitants.

The way to unleashing the Human X Factor is through human CONNECTIVITY, true unity. This is where extraordinary things happen… this is where the magic takes place. However, the key is you have to be fully present and in resonance on all levels for it to be revealed.

Elizabeth has created a leading-edge formula, which supports New Style Leadership and creates Community for Social Change.

The Space “Between” Us

What happens when we come together?

What happens between us and inside us?

Is it only our physical bodies that meet and our five senses that bridge the gap to one another and the perceived reality around us?

 

There must be more, much more happening in the space we inhabit. I have always wondered what drives us to noisy restaurants where a conversation is almost impossible, or to sit quietly in a large darkened room with a crowd around us, watching a movie.

Is some free-floating energy present that we are somehow able to ingest?

What is it about a dog or cat that fills a need for companionship?

Is there a living presence that they emanate?

A moment of deep feeling shared by one of us can embrace and unify a group instantaneously. How does that happen?

In moments of silence together, we can feel something almost palpable between us. In meditation when attention is freed from its habitual focus on the material realm, we become aware of Space, unbounded, within and without, everywhere. Focused nonjudgmental listening cuts through the distance between us and opens intimate new ways of seeing and understanding each other.Metaphysical wisdom teachings tell us that beyond our physical body there are several more invisible bodies in our true anatomy. Each has their own distinct qualities, each extends across space and time in seeming miraculous ways, each has its own way of connecting us. Ancient Indian wisdom speaks about Indra’s web, a structure across the entire creation connecting everything instantaneously as One, a mystical unified field.

Now, Western Science is joining this timeless conversation about how we and everything else is connected. It is searching for its own unified field. At the level of our everyday experience and at the quantum dimension, we and the fundamental units of creation are joined in ways we are just beginning to discover, certainly don’t yet fully understand and in many cases, can’t even imagine. The Universe is a space alive with a cosmic dance of Nothing hiding as Something, of the waltz of appearance and disappearance, of masked dark energies holding everything together. Clearly, space is not empty!

For eighteen years, we at Vistar have been exploring an aspect of the space between us, this mysterious field of gathered human consciousness. We know some of its power and potential and its awesome ability to unify us. This field has the unlimited creative ability, but when unconscious and misdirected, it can manifest a destructive power witnessed by much of our history.

Our relation to the invisible dimension of space and our understanding of how we are connected to it and influence it is new territory. We need open eyes and ears to for this exploration, for it will shape our evolutionary journey and every aspect of our human experience. Ultimately, it will determine how we as a species shall take our position as citizens of the Cosmos.
