Deepak Chopra’sSeven Spiritual Laws of Success is a book that I revisit often. I actually have the application of each law on my vision board. It is a 37-page book but it is a book of comprehension and not of completion. Meaning, you shouldn’t just read it and throw it back on your dusty bookshelf with all the other books that you have read but not applied. The spiritual laws that are discussed in the book are universal laws that are timeless; they are always relevant now.
I have tested these laws out myself. I have also done Deepak’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success 21-day meditation on youtube. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) In 2019, I grabbed a few of my friends to undergo a 7-week study, evaluating a different law each week. It was very exhilarating and expanded the minds of many others.
This particular post is about the second law, The Law of Giving.
“This law could also be called the Law of Giving and Receiving because the universe operates through dynamic exchange.”-Deepak Chopra
Without further ado let’s get into the Law of Giving with The Juicy Book Club.
The Juicy Book Club will be reviewing a new book soon. If you want to be a part of the Juicy Book Club make sure you subscribe to the blog with your email. Also like, comment, and subscribe to my youtube channel.
Being overwhelmed mentally and thinking that I had to keep up with society’s standards of blogging have kept me away from my love which is blogging. But now I am wise enough to know that (excuse my language) I can do whatever the fuck I want to do. I don’t have to post a blog post every single week or every month if I don’t have the mental energy for it. Me dropping a blog post is like one of your favorite artists dropping an album because most of my posts resonate with your consciousness. Because this has been a constant inner battle for a while, I completely withdrew my energy and that is not fair to me or to the people who really need my energy. When I blog, I feel free af and I can honestly say that although I have found my inner happiness from doing my inner work over the years, I haven’t really felt as free as I did when I was blogging. Freedom is one of the main themes of my life.
I won’t promise that I will abide by societal standards of blogging but I can say that I’m happy to be here in the now with you. I AM a CONSCIOUS BLOGGER. Two things were certain when I started TJE, my love for music, specifically underground music, and my spiritual journey to higher consciousness. I never really established or solidified that TJE was a conscious blog but if I review the past, that’s exactly what it is. That’s what I’ve been on since the beginning. One of the very first posts that I wrote about, was the secret and the law of attraction and that was in 2011 when many were not hip to it. The way I wrote my interview questions was all geared towards elevating consciousness. Because I created TJE for my inner freedom and for the love of blogging/ writing I never knew to make FREEDOM my niche. I’ve been hoarding D.O.P.E. blog topics, inspiring photos, and life-changing experiments because at times I have been mentally overwhelmed.
“Swear that’s my dream, but he too blind to see that If you doin’ what he love in his freetime Then his dream already happened” -Big Sean “Everything That’s Missing
I never once in my head gave up on TJE but I had the false belief that life would slow down for me so that I would be able to blog more. I now know that I have to create the time and space for blogging. So if you have a dream or certain desires the time is now. Start working on it when you feel aligned. Don’t worry about the fact that you can’t finish it right now. Don’t worry about the fact that you only gave one hour to your dream today. You have to build up the momentum for creating time and space for your inner desires. You may think that you are living your dream once the milli hits the bank account or once you go viral but living your dream is living in the now on your journey.
So RELEASE any and all SELF-limitations that YOU put on your DREAMS.
KvTheWriter is a St.Louis artist on the rise with an artistic expression that creates an automatic buzz every time she drops new art. From writing poetry and raps since a child, KV is no stranger to expression. She first appeared on The Juicy Expressions very own “We Hustle Cypher” as a poet before she was an actual artist. KV uses her music to help her heal through trauma from losing both her dad and brother to gun violence in St.Louis.
I sat down with KvTheWriter to discuss her new album “Unplugged” in detail. Check out the interview below and support her journey. There are many ways to support this independent artist. Kv is a published author so you can purchase her poem book “Of Magic and Madness“. You can also go to KVTHEWRITER.COM to purchase Unplugged directly.
My favorite track on this album is “Stormy Waters” because it discusses dealing with uncertainty through troubled times. That’s something that many of us can relate to. Watch the interview below and comment your favorite track on the album.
How nice are you towards yourself? Do you criticize yourself daily or do you often tell yourself that you are doing a wonderful job? Growing up it is likely that you have heard the statement “Treat others how you want to be treated”. I am a supporter of this wise saying but I also believe in the opposite, “Treat yourself how you want others to treat you”.
Answer this question, “how have you been treating yourself”?
When you criticize yourself you attract criticism from others. But when you provide self-approval you will attract praise from others. So many people desire to be loved by others but they are depriving themselves of unconditional self-love. There are people who want others to forgive them of the wrongdoings that they have caused others, but those people haven’t forgiven them self first.
Several people aspire for others to treat them with high respect but those same people allow and treat their self with disrespect. I hear a lot of women talking about how they want a man to view them as a queen or Goddess but some of those same women view their self as not enough, looking through the eyes of lack. Alternatively, there are a lot of men who say they want a “real” women but their inner makeup isn’t filled with “real” matter. Like are you prepared to stop your characteristic trait of dishonesty to even realistically co-exist with a real woman?
Let me get back to the point LOL.
Is it really logical for us to expect others to hold us up in high regards when we are continuously vibrating in the lower playing field?
If you are not treating yourself how you want others to treat you, then you are being a contradiction. It is not someone else’s job to give you self-esteem. Self-esteem can only be achieved through the practice of loving SELF unconditionally. It is your job to view yourself how you desire to be. You have control over the way others treat you but you must begin with focusing ONLY on yourself.
Here are 3 efficient ways to enhance your self-appreciation:
1. Release the need to judge yourself
This may be a difficult thing to do at first because you were probably raised to be hard on yourself. However, understand the difference between discipline and self-downing. (Major Difference) Don’t judge your self for anything that you do because it is counterproductive and it will only make you feel worst. Acknowledge those things that you are doing that you don’t like only for awareness because if you are conscious of them it is likely that you will not intentionally do it again. If you are continuing to do things that you know is not good for you that’s because you have not yet learned the lesson that you are supposed to learn. Trust me you will learn it eventually. But the point here is DON’T JUDGE.
2. Visualize and Create
Visualizing and creating is pretty much the same thing because when you are visualizing something whether it is positive or negative you are creating. Since you are now aware of this, use visualization to your advantage! Take a few minutes each day to visualize the exact life that you want. Visualize how you want to be perceived in this world. Visualize more love around you. Visualize yourself living your best life! Whatever it is that you want start visualizing it now. You can also do this in others ways including drawing out pictures, dressing up and taking pictures in front of the company that you desire to work for, sitting outside of the exact house that you want to buy etc. Make your visualization process a fun one and start watching your visions unfold before your eyes. Remember you have to be that which you want to become!
3. Self Praise
I think all 3 of these tips are super lit but this tip right here tho #LIT!!!!!! Go super hard for your self!!!!!!! Self-praise is the best praise! Do those mirror talks and speak words of beauty to yourself. Tell yourself daily that you are doing a great job! When something upsetting happens, be nice to yourself about it. Be your own best friend! Make a habit of giving yourself great energy and your resilience will strengthen. Don’t wait for others to appreciate you start appreciating yourself and the others will fall in line! Think of yourself as a seed. Choose exactly where you want to be planted but most importantly feed yourself with patience and sunlight. As you begin to blossom into a beautiful flower please remember that flowers do not compete to grow or exist. They find their sunlight and even share the water for nourishment. They always find ways to shine.
So my final question to you is, “Are you treating yourself how you want others to treat you?” If the answer to this question is no, acknowledge it and begin where you are now to make the appropriate changes. You will find that once you begin implementing those new changes other people will start treating you accordingly and its because they will have no choice. When you begin vibrating higher you will attract people on the same playing field. Love you all.
When you’re afraid of something, do you run away from it or do you run towards it?
That is one of the many questions I asked my best friend Shirleyas on the phone the other night and right now I am asking you.
On September 9, 2017, at 10:15 pm (California time) I decided to release ALL fear from my life. This commitment meant that I could no longer delay from doing things that I really wanted to do. There are a lot of things that I desired to do but I felt that I had to wait for the perfect moment or have all of the right tools to do it. Now I know that you must use what you got to get where you’re going. Things don’t have to be perfect because in reality they never will be.
I don’t fear a lot of things but when I dug deeper within, small things arose to my attention that I am very apprehensive about. Watch the video below to find out what those things are and to find out why you should release all fear from your life as well!!!!!!
