Life is better when you have a coach to empower you through the cognitive storms.
Live your life Regardless of what people think. If you think your passions are worth your commitment then others will follow your lead. If you falter in your values and beliefs than others will see weakness in your commitment and judge it less than worthy of your desire. Be stoic, be patient, be loyal, trust in yourself, and the universe will strengthen while guiding your objectives.
Dare to be, Namaste!
I’ve been away for a little while however I’ve carried all of you that follow me in my heart. So I greet you today, Namaste, my friends, I hope peace and blessings have been at your side in my absence. Have you been conscientious in your behaviors and your actions? Have you opened your heart and befriended another. I trust that you all have been gifting love without a doubt. Let’s do some catching up. It has been an exciting summer and fall. I’ve tackled every subject under the sun in graduate psychology, and I’m proud to say it’s off to doctoral studies in 2015. I hope that you all have made significant accomplishments. There has been an overwhelming surge of cognitive dissonance in my peers, and I guess I’m the girl of compassionate wisdom. The philosopher of logic, spiritual teaching, and the enhancer of self-identities. I’ve become the person one seeks when things have become so inconsistent that the need for cognitive (stable dispositions) re-adjustments and behaviors have now become my forte. I’m appreciative of those who seek my discretionary abilities. Today we address the issue of cognitive dissonance from theorist Festinger, L., (1957), and I hope from you understanding the concept you can apply some consistency to your lives. Cognitive dissonance is a mental representation of internal conflict (disharmony) that arises from contradictions in beliefs, values, morals, judgments, behaviors and attitudes. Whoa, that was a mouthful. When dissonance occurs, individuals are faced with a spectrum (happiness, sadness, anger, anxiety, fear, apprehension etc.) of emotions that are situational. How do we self-balance again when we are spiritual conflicted? You find a place where you can mentally decompress and begin to assert yourself again from a psychological state that is balanced and consistent (harmonious) in thoughts, beliefs and behaviors. We all suffer at times from unharmonious affairs of the mind however everything is fixable when you believe in yourself and have faith in the power of restoration. Our lives are complex and finding cognitive consonance in your worries will not surface overnight. However, placing it into God’s hands will give you peace in the midst of your troubles that will allow you to assess the dilemmas critically before you and move you to an inspired discernment.
Be at Peace & Cognitive Consonance
People will fail you every time and you may even fail yourself at times. However every day present an avenue of redemption and an optimistic change of course. Therefore the key to constant evolution and the navigation of personal flux is to keep your eyes on the objectives and to be 2 steps in front of the oppositions. Life is about strategical balance. Remember to keep your hearts open to creative inspiration and your mind filled with knowledge and new-found wisdom. Be drama free like the wind, patient like the earth, and nourishing like water. This is how we sustain the grace of life God has given us. Empower yourself and others with your touch mentally, physically, emotionally or through the blessing of all three.
Namaste Taylor 😉
