Transformation

I came across a video of Chris Nikic about a year ago.

I love his story so much.

Completing an Ironman Triathlon in the required time (17 hours) is no small feat for any person.

One day I rode my bicycle for 56 miles against headwinds and with lots of hills. For me that was a huge thing. I also one day swam a mile in a pool, not open water that has tides and currents. And one day I ran six miles. Each of these feats were big for me but they were singular and months apart. Whenever I hear of people doing an Ironman Triathlon, I marvel. A one-mile open-water swim, a 100-mile bicycle ride and a marathon (26.2 miles), consecutively, all in one day, within 17 hours. That is a super-human feat for anyone.

I love what has come of this for Chris, a passionate life with family and friends’ support, being part of the community and that great feeling of getting better every day.

His dad and a coach developed a great philosophy for him: 1% better every day. That caught my eye– not 20% or 30% or 100%– 1% better every day. One lap in the pool, learn to ride a bike, one extra step a day. 

I feel the keys in any goal setting are to have passion for its accomplishment and to have support.

Chris’ plan gives him one year of training. 1% better every day. No excuses, no complaining, no days off.

After following his story, I have taken that mantra: 1% better every day, no excuses, no complaining, no days off.

For me this has taken me out of overwhelm, and the feeling that my own personal goals are beyond reach, to getting 1% better every day. Even the smallest accomplishment gives me an uplift.

I hope you will enjoy these videos and be inspired to accomplish your own goals.

Transformation

By Nina Wilkins

We are in the midst of an incredible, immeasurable, mysterious, miraculous planetary shift of the ages. Wow. Almost too amazing to grasp. This change includes You. Your family, friends, pets, plants, trees, all animals, all species, soil, water, flowers– you name it. Every part of Gaia, Sophia, Virgo, Patcha Mama, our incredible Earth Mother, will transform and is transforming to a higher way of being Love. A higher frequency of Life and our higher spiritual Truths are manifesting all around us.

You may want to start small with these ideas as Sananda has told me often over the years that the planetary changes begin with us. You and I are building the New Earth by the way we live. Our consciousness of good is transmitting light to all around us. He has mentioned many times that the major changes in our world will be grass roots, from ourselves, our self love, to loving and forgiving our human family and to becoming conscious of the fact that we are all connected. We are not separate from our Creator, our Planet and all of her inhabitants including the Unified Universal Love of All.

Dandelions, frogs and butterflies show us by their lives how natural it is to transform into an entirely different form and still be themselves, though an expanded version of their essence. We are transforming into our higher selves as we speak. We are changing into our soul-infused personalities. As we become more aware and awaken to our good, we can make small changes that make a huge difference in our lives. In past blogs I have written about flower essences, charged water, crystals and music as simple and easy ways to help us transform daily.

Other readily available helpers are Herbs. Over the years learning about herbs and flower essences has been my hobby. We are all very unique in our bodies, emotions, beliefs and cultural adaptations, so I invite you to try a variety of herbs that you are drawn to. I have found Traditional Medicinals to be a high quality, reliable and available source of herbal teas. Teas are a good way to learn about herbs and to discover their benefits for You.

I have always loved dandelions. Their herbal profile is stated on the box in the photo below. Also, the Spirit of transformation is part of their essence. Your time will be well spent learning about and using herbs. One of my favorite mail order companies is Monterey Bay Spice Company. They are reasonably priced and have a beautiful online monthly newsletter. They sell herbs, spices and teas.

Every small change for the better we make in our lives will help the collective consciousness rise. Letting go of plastic will help our waters infinitely. Eating organic foods enhances our bodies but also soils and our farmers’ health. Riding bikes is fun and helps our air quality. So, let’s go. We do know what to do and be and it’s not too late.
