This is a wonderful video of a speech Jim Carrey gave at a University graduation ceremony. He explains the challenges the ego presents us with fear, with feeling not good enough, etc and explains how he overcame these to live from the heart and allow himself to shine. He shares how he sees his purpose in life as being to help people to be freed from their cares – through his humor – he helps people relax and enjoy life. He sees his work as a higher purpose or calling and he encourages us all to find the way to be of service doing something we love. He explains abundance and the law of attraction as well as many other spiritual / consciousness concepts. Worth watching all the way to the end. Bless him for this and the University for being open to such a profound conversation occurring within it. Enjoy!
What is the most effective way to obtain behaviour change for sustainability? Love everyone. People behave unsustainably because they are unaware of their true nature and that of the Earth’s. If people were aware they would not harm themselves or our living Mother who supports us.
People are wounded from disappointments in life. Be it not having their needs met when children or later in life. These unmet emotional needs leave a longing for more within them, a desire, a wanting. They search out things to meet those needs, those wants and desires, but things are not the solution. What people really want and need is to be seen, heard, loved and accepted as they are. They want to be themselves and follow their hearts doing what they are passionate about – then they are full-filled and don’t need things to fill the holes in their heart.
Life is really very simple. Human beings have made it complex and in that complexity is the materialistic, success striving, constantly more obtaining ethic. That is not God’s will or nature’s will. Mother Earth gives freely to all her children. If they live simply taking only what they need for themselves and their family’s comfortable survival then she can accommodate it. It is only because we live in excess, distorted balance, that the Earth is struggling to cope with our demands. She can balance back up, but doing so results in shifts and changes that we don’t necessarily like – natural disasters – floods, volcanic eruptions, ice ages, etc. These are catastrophic to those who live in those places, but the Earth has to regulate her energies and discharge the negative energy somewhere. It is at these pressure points that natural disasters occur.
So to solve the unsustainable behaviour we need people to choose to live more simply. Most won’t for they see that as sacrifice. They don’t realise they would gain joy, peace, health and happiness from living more simply connected to nature and each other. They would gain peace of mind and true wealth through a greater inner connection with their higher self and God.
Each human will eventually come to realise this as they see the materialistic rat-race is a dead end street resulting in exhaustion, misery, confusion and loss. It results in disease, loneliness, fear, isolation and competition. These are not the natural state of human beings, but it is what we have become by focusing on work, achievement and success. When we could have just as easily chosen peace, harmony, community, sharing and supporting each other to enjoy life to the full.
The solution – awareness, love, healing. Helping people to realise they have a choice, that being more sustainable is not a loss, a sacrifice, but a treasure of wealth unimaginable for them and their families who would finally have time for each other, to connect deeply and share life experiences. A treasure for them to share with their children and so on, until after a few generations living sustainably will seem just as normal as the materialistic lifestyle. Those still being materialistic will not be envied, but pitied, for we know the burden they carry as a result of their choices and the shallowness of their experience of life.
So love one another, meet each other’s needs and share abundantly the harvest of the Earth. Live happily and peacefully connected to your hearts and the Earth Mother. So be it. Amen.

Below is part 2 of the infographic explaining the concepts of neuroplasticity from the Alta Mira Centre. This infographic explains that we can train the brain and rewire it by altering how we think. It shows how mindfulness and meditation can help us create new pathways in the brain. The infographic was created by the Alta Mira Centre – www.altamirarecovery.com.

This is a message I channeled from my higher self (8 Feb 2015).
Do not despair at the process child. Life is a series of events that challenge our faith and help us to heal and evolve. It is as it is meant to be. Yes sometimes unfair things happen, bad things happen to good people. It is just life and how it works. No one no matter how good will be spared from tragedy and hard work. It is life to work through sadness and other emotions. It is life guiding you forth to seek the light, to love the Lord and God with all your heart. It is life’s journey.
Do not despair. See the growth. See the advancement. See the beauty of nature and allow life to flow like it does in nature. Rest peacefully like the beasts, trusting nature/God to provide all that is needed. Blessed BE. Choose peace and enjoy life despite the challenges. Be kind and loving and happy with what you have. Trust it is all happening as it needs to. Blessed BE. Amen.
Below is an infographic explaining the concepts of neuroplasticity – that our brains continue to grow and change. They are not hardwired as was previously believed. This infographic explains the latest findings in neuroplasticity and its links to addiction, compulsive behaviours and how to change these.

My higher self gave me this simple but important advice (19 Nov 2014).
When you fall into a low mood wondering if it is all worth it, it is because you are focused on what is wrong with the world and your life, instead of focusing on what is right and possible. You are getting better at focusing on what you want, on believing it is possible, on enjoying life regardless of the situation.
