Shakti Gawain

  • Beingness, doingness and havingness are like a triangle where each side supports the others. They are not in conflict with each other. They all exist simultaneously. Often people attempt to live their lives backward: They try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

  • Problems are messages.

  • ... when I'm trusting and being myself as fully as possible, everything in my life reflects this by falling into place easily, often miraculously.

  • Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.

  • By learning to contact, listen to, and act on our intuition, we can directly connect to the higher power of the universe and allow it to become our guiding force.

  • We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other peoples' models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open.

  • ... we need to be willing to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow that guidance directly and fearlessly.

  • When you see beauty anywhere, it's a reflection of yourself.

  • The union of feminine and masculine energies within the individual is the basis of all creation.

  • When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away.

  • A deadness occurs in relationships when people are no longer willing to tell each other how they really feel. When people first fall in love they're more willing to do this because they're still getting to know each other and dependency has not yet set in. As soon as it does, though, people often stop sharing their true feelings out of fear of loss.

  • Work and play are the same. When you're following your energy and doing what you want all the time, the distinction between work and play dissolves.

  • People with little money seldom realize that people who have a lot of money are also frightened. ... If security is based on having money, it doesn't matter whether you have a little or a lot, you're going to be afraid.

  • Learning to trust our intuition is an art form, and like all other art forms, it takes practice to perfect.

  • ... we always attract into our lives whatever we think about most, believe in most strongly, expect on the deepest level, and imagine most vividly.

  • Poverty on both a personal and worldwide level is supported by our collective belief in scarcity.

  • Anything in life that we don't accept will simply make trouble for us until we make peace with it.

  • Our primary relationship is really with ourselves ... Our relationships with other people constantly reflect exactly where we are in the process.

  • The universe will reward you for taking risks on its behalf.
