BREAKING THE CYCLE OF BURNOUT

Taking a moment to reflect on the burnout period in my nursing days I realize there are 3 phases of burnout based on my theory.

How is it that one moment I can go back to the same position and work after burnout ?

Three months after I can no longer work in this position.  I worked with work related PTSD “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” and chronic pain.

The first phase was acute because I was able to go back to work.

What happens between the acute and the chronic phase of burnout?

This is where the healing phase takes place.  This is a period where reflection and recharge takes place.

During this phase I took six months off and went to Italy to heal.  The healing process is a component of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration.  The exhaustion from burnout is like losing yourself in a void.

When I recuperated in Italy, I was energetic and looked forward to work again.  I feel like I gained my second wind only to realize it was only a temporary stay.

Breaking the cycle of burnout is to remove yourself from the title like a nurse working in the emergency dept.  It is to build a healing team to restore yourself with meditation, therapy, journal writing and exercise.

It is to realign passion with purpose.  Sometimes the passion of nursing is extinguished and replaced with another passion.

It doesn’t mean you will not go through a withdrawal phase because the void is not to know what to do next to move forward in the unknown path.

Breaking the cycle of burnout guided me to believe in my True self.  I made my career and not my career made me the title.

During the healing phase there is an internal struggle for the spiritual crisis for burnout is real.  The healing process takes one day at a time.

Rebuilding from burnout is to believe in your True potential.  It is a stepping stone to your True purpose.

Shift to Think Purpose

Shifting the mind out of the comfort zone is a break through of consciousness.  The shift happens in the moment of Now.  The mentality of keeping everything in order to keep the routine going is the EGO way of thinking, all is under control.

Shifting the mind out of the comfort zone is the UNKNOWN.  Allowance of freedom of thinking outside the box is to bring creativity to play.  Imagination is the game changer.  To think like children, the adventure and curiosity gives the advantage to break the routine.

Shifting the mind to think Purpose is to hit a home run with all bases loaded.  Purpose is the driving force to creativity and passion.  It no longer plays on an amateur field but a Greatness field.

Purpose is the realization to empower others towards their True potential. The greatest strength of the mind with the heart is empowerment.

Shifting the mind out of the comfort zone will raise the bar of infinite possibilities, unlimited potential and freedom.  Oneness is the key to purpose.

Let me share a story.  My family and I went to Prince Edward County, Ontario.  We attended a great evening called J.K. Summer Dinner Series.  It was a pairing of great food prepared by chef JAMIE KENNEDY and his staff with ROSEHALL RUN VINEYARDS  wines.  The food, wine, company and atmosphere were in harmony.

The cooperative thinking of bringing local produce and wines to the table is to show community becomes family.  All is prosperous.

When Oneness is the connection of all, there is no competition and every one will succeed.  This is the moment of NOW to shift to think Purpose.

 

 

Shift to Think Purpose

Though my mind draws blank, I ask my heart to write.  It is not that we do not believe in our True potential.  It is the detachment of ourselves to reach through to grasp what it is Truth.

The mind knows how to play the game. Our True self does not deny the mind to rule as long as we play the role of what we want in our lives.  Why do we keep on this wheel of fortune?  Our True investment is US.

Alignment with the heart and mind will challenge our belief system.  Opportunity lies in our passion of True purpose.  Speak Heart Speak.  We are divine beings of the source.  Truth is to believe in our True potential.

IMAGINE.  VISUALIZE.  MEDITATE.  MANIFEST.

All is possible.  Let go of control.  Allow and follow the heart’s dream.  The heart’s dream is the connection of True purpose.  Don’t buy into the myth of it is not possible, not attainable and not worthy to live it.  Our inner critic keeps beating us down.  Keep moving forward.  Allow it to be done with the Divine source.

Naysayers are about them, not us.  We have Greatness in all of us to pursue our greatest joy, ART of BEING.

IMAGINE.  VISUALIZE.  MEDITATE.  MANIFEST.

Speak Heart Speak.  We can lie to ourselves by pretending to play the role of the victim but we are victorious in our True self .  Believe all is possible.  All is attainable.  All is worthy to live the heart’s dream.

Ride the waves of infinite possibilities.  Ride the waves of unlimited potential.  Ride the waves of freedom.

IMAGINE.  VISUALIZE.  MEDITATE.  MANIFEST.

Perseverance breaks through self doubt, fear and procrastination.

 

SPEAK HEART SPEAK.

Namaste

Transformational change is an emotional rollercoaster.  

Don’t kid yourself if you are going to make changes in your life you will experience the emotional rollercoaster.  The comfort zone has placed you in a limbo state.  You know the routine, people and places in your everyday life.

Transformational change is an emotional rollercoaster.

When change pushes you out of the comfort zone, you may experience withdrawal effects.  A part of you wants to push back into the comfort zone because the UNKNOWN is out of your control.  How would you feel if you suddenly were turned upside down just like being on a rollercoaster?

When you detach from the comfort zone, you are no longer in control of the outcome for it is the UNKNOWN.  Just like when you have to make a detour in life, the panic button comes on.  What if your plan is not part of the Divine plan?

Transformational change is an emotional rollercoaster.

Think about making plans ahead and then some issue crops up out of nowhere.  You did not expect it.  It should not have happened.  It was never part of your plan.

This is why Shift to Think Purpose is to reroute you to believe in your True potential to follow your heart’s dream.

Let me share something with you.  I was doing a writing course and continued to procrastinate because I thought I had all the time in the world.  A health issue awakened me to pursue to complete the writing course and publish “THE MAGIC HORSE”.  It pushed me out of my comfort zone.

Transformational change is an emotional rollercoaster.

START THE TRANSFORMATIONAL PROCESS NOW.  If you don’t know how to do it, start with what is your passion.  What will push you out of your comfort zone to follow your passion?

Be aware once you decide to make changes, there will be obstacles in  your path to push you back in your comfort zone.  Take a Quantum leap of Faith.  You are not alone during this transformation.  You will bump into people and opportunities leading you towards your heart’s dream.

The best teacher of transformational change is NATURE.  It changes moment to moment.  It is unpredictable.

Transformational change is an emotional rollercoaster.

Challenge your mind to alert yourself to the awakening of your True potential.

Focus on the intention of living out your heart’s dream.  The heart’s dream comes in alignment with True purpose.  Plant the bulb in your heart.

Are you ready to bud out?

Don’t hold back.  Make it happen now.  Create something out of nothing.  Imagine infinite possibilities for there are many variations of roses.

Are you ready to bud out?

Roses that don’t bloom are called bullets.  The resistance is the comfort zone.  The choice is the opportunity to allow it to happen.  Surrender and release the heart’s dream to bloom as a hobby till it becomes a career.

Are you ready to bud out?

Challenge your mind to alert yourself to the awakening of your True potential.

Are you ready to bud out?

Imagine to write in your heart, “I am living my heart’s dream in the now.”

Are you ready to bud out?

Visualize moment to moment living out your heart’s dream.

Meditate moment to moment BEING in your heart’s dream.

Manifest moment to moment designing your heart’s dream to reality.

Greatness is in BEING at the moment of True Potential.

The play of life is to adapt to change moment to moment.  The role of success is to play the character of prosperity and charity.  The greatest defeat is to play small, mediocre or average.

Greatness is in BEING at the moment of True Potential.

The challenge is to overcome self doubt, fear and procrastination.  The best one I heard, “I have all the time in the world to do it.”  Why wait for a life changing experience when the moment is NOW to say, “YES!”

Greatness is in BEING at the moment of True Potential.

Living the heart’s dream moment to moment is the greatest joy.

Greatness is in BEING at the moment of True Potential.

Where does True purpose play?  On the determination field where it meets face to face with fear.  Denying the True self in living the heart’s dream is the greatest failure.  Listen to your heart for it knows your True purpose.

Greatness is in BEING at the moment of True Potential.

Ditch the attitude of not being good enough and not smart enough.  Connect with your innate intelligence.  Just do it.  Visualize, meditate and imagine to manifest it.

“Stay hungry. Stay foolish.  Have fun.” Steve Jobs

 

Greatness is in BEING at the moment of True Potential.

Time is the present moment to make it happen.  Break the code of no excuses and play.  Greatness plays in the field of adversity.

What if the greatest joy is this precious moment to embrace change?

“Believe in yourself and you will conquer all.” – THE MAGIC HORSE

 

Happy Writing!

Once upon a time there was a red haired girl, named Amy Storm like her temper.  One day she was bored and decided to take a walk.  Crossing the meadows, she came upon a talking stream and paused to listen.  There is a message from the stream.  She becomes distracted by the birds singing. Watches the leaves dancing.

Suddenly the sky is getting dark and a storm is brewing. The lightening strikes the stream.  The message from the stream begins.

The storm of the past teaches us we are survivors in the present moment.  We are liberated by our fears and procrastination.  We have overcome pain and suffering to bring joy in the NOW.

Then rain came down, but it was a light rain and when it touched her skin, it was dry.  Amy Storm wondered how can rain become dry.

The message from the stream continues.

Every time we cry, our tears are dried up by God’s love.  Healing is a symbolism of forgiveness.  Forgiveness is to witness the freedom of joy.

The birds fly around her like they are angels.  The rustling of the leaves are chiming to the tune of the stream.

The message from the stream continues.

We are all perfect in God’s eyes.  Embrace God’s love in pain and suffering.  Embrace the grace of the Divine source.  Healing is the nurturing of growth to a better person.

Amy Storm sits on the grass and puts her feet in the stream to feel its’ presence of a vibrational frequency going through her.

The message from the stream continues.

Healing takes one day at a time.  Embrace the present moment to express  “Thank you”.  It is the present moment to connect with Oneness, to experience the True self.

A bridge appeared over the stream.  She got up and crossed the bridge.

The message from the stream continues.

Every time a rainbow appears after the storm, it shows the present moment.  The spiritual path teaches us to be patient, kind, loving and caring.

A magical wonderland appears after the bridge with rainbow waterfalls and flowers all around her.  In the middle of a pond is a ruby red crystal.

The message from the stream continues.

The moment counts as a True blessing for it is the greatest awakening and the greatest joy to bring all to Oneness.

Amy Storm jumped into the pond and laughed in joy.
