Keep Yourself Composed When You Are About To Lose It, It Will Help You Succeed!

According to the Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, composure defined = a calmness or repose especially of mind, bearing, or appearance: self-possession.



Would you consider composure as a desired characteristic? At a job interview would you mention the ability to keep composure under stress a strength. I think it is one of the most under-rated desired trait or characteristic. Countless times I’ve wished I would have kept it together and not lost it (total ape sh*t lost it). But sigh I digress. I don’t know if you could relate but I wish I could have turned back the clock many of times and said what I’ve wanted to say better if I just hadn’t lost my composure. If only I could have kept it together long enough I could have articulated what I needed to say better. Perhaps I would have been taken more seriously and not appeared as an emotional wreck. Perhaps I would have been able to prove the point I needed to make all along and just wasn’t able to because I just couldn’t keep my composure. Funny thing is literally 5 minutes ago I walked away from the computer and almost lost it because of a work-related issue. However, I walked back to my desk and saw this post open which I wanted so carefully to make my point on. So deep breath kiddo… I’m practicing how to keep my composure.
We are human and sometimes we joke “oh boy that one has a temper on her”. Or “she is gonna lose it, straight lose it when she finds out xyz”. As an adult I’ve gained a new take on life, one in which I rely on God and less in the pantheistic ways I once was accustomed to.

I would like to share something with you which I would tell anyone of my dear ones. It’s okay to be upset/hurt/angry etc. We were made to feel all these ways. Be true to who you are because you know how to help yourself the best. Take a moment to be present in these feelings because it’s important to interpret and work through these emotions to really move on and keep your composure. And it’s okay to have these moments of self-loss but it’s also important to center again.

There is a wealth of information available on how to effectively keep your composure from a business standpoint. I’ve included link to an article named 7 Ways Leaders Maintain Their Composure In Difficult Times. I wish you success in trying to keep composure or better compose yourself.

A YouTube Video below on composure will give you something to think about and may also motivate you to keep your composure during times when circumstances may tempt you, not to.

Here is a little pact I’ve made with myself and I hope it may also inspire you.

Dear Past Self – I wish I could have kept better composure but I forgive myself because it was in these moments that I learned the value of keeping it together, not only for myself but for all around me.

Dear Present Self – I promise to work on keeping composure, given what I’ve learned be more aware during the moments.

Dear Future Self – I promise to be committed to keeping composure and be more reflective on moments when I wish I could have been more composed. I hope you can look back and feel I tried to work on this characteristic.

Yoga From The Himalayas

Do you love your yoga practice, yet also feel a call to go “deeper”? Western yoga tends to put an emphasis on the poses (asanas), and many think of yoga as what happens in class. But that 90 minutes is only the start!

The physical practice of yoga is a gateway to its true purpose — “union” of all aspects of yourself so that you can live in full communion with the divine Self that is your truest nature.

On Wednesday, June 29, you can begin to tap more of the full potential of yoga when you join Anand Mehrotra for Seven Foundational Teachings of Yoga from the Himalayas: Full-spectrum Practices for a Life of Harmony, Peace & Freedom.

You can register for this FREE virtual event, here

 

AnandMehrotra_intro_rectangle

Anand was recognized as a spiritual teacher at a young age. He built an ashram on the Ganges River at the meeting point of mountain and the plain, and has dedicated his life to helping others integrate “unity consciousness” into their daily life through yoga. He is deeply rooted in the ancient tradition, yet refreshingly non-traditional in his approach, which is simple, accessible and, ultimately, transformative.

In this one-hour free event with Anand, you’ll explore key teachings such as:

Uplevel your practice from asana, which benefits only the physical, to an evolutionary process that touches every aspect of your life
Expanding your understanding of Self and the nature of Reality
Balancing between time-bound expressions and ego and the timeless state of God Consciousness

It’s free to attend, but you must RSVP here

Please join us! I can assure you that your practice on the mat will deepen as you open more and more deeply to the promise of true yoga — full union of body, mind and

PS: Don’t miss your chance to experience Seven Foundational Teachings of Yoga from the Himalayas: Full-spectrum Practices for a Life of Harmony, Peace & Freedom, and learn from an exciting, emerging teacher of a proven, holistic approach to yoga… for FREE!

The Self Reliance Summit 2016 Day 8th

This is final day of The Self Reliance Summit 2016. Jason Matyasis first person to be interviewed by John Crane. Jason Matyas is a husband and father of seven, lifelong gardener, 17 year Air Force veteran with 9 worldwide deployments including two tours in Afghanistan, visionary entrepreneur and business strategy consultant, and Founder or Co-Founder of six startups. He is the founder of a family business with his children called Seeds for Generations that provides heirloom garden seeds and inspiration for gardening as a family.

JASON-MATYAS

Jason discussion includes Understanding the Modern Grid and the how to Reduce Dependence on it. The modern system – economy, government, and culture – has developed into a massive control grid that seeks to dominate almost every aspect of your life. It does this first and foremost through capturing your mind – teaching you how to think – so that you are unable to contemplate a life outside of the constraints that the system has set for you. This is the ultimate form of slavery – slavery over the mind. But it is one that is agreed to by its subjects, even if out of ignorance. To seek true freedom requires opening your eyes and seeing reality for what it truly is, breaking out of the boxes that have developed in your mind, and evaluating how you can work around the constraints that have been set for the progress and prosperity of you and your family. It is essential that you understand how our current system works so you can properly assess your own situation and make wise decisions about how to prepare for the future. Join us for a challenging and eye-opening presentation that is sure to make you re-think your paradigm.

Rachel Morrison is the last interviewee. Rachel specializes in Internal and Global Strategies with an emphasis in spirituality, wellness and sustainability education. She studied International Business and Marketing, and has practiced Integrated Wellness Principles most of her life. Rachel is a speaker,trainer and developer of “programs of change” with Sunrise Ranch and where thought leaders from around the world, who are dedicated to the awareness and evolution of consciousness by focusing on global development through the Self, Thriving Community and Unified Efforts go.

RACHEL-MORRISON-SELF-RELIANCE

Interdependence and Self-Reliance; Living in Sustainable Community are her topics for interview. How to live in sustainable community while developing inner-self-reliance and cultivating inner peace, self-understanding, and conscious awareness. Learn first hand from someone who’s lived in intentional community for 6 years what it’s like to be in a supportive, changing, dynamic, successful intentional community.

The Self Reliance Summit 2016 Day Six

Day six starts with discussion involving Steven Harris. Steven Harris is a consultant and expert in the field of energy. He is the founder and CEO of Knowledge Publications, the largest energy only publishing company in the USA. Mr. Harris came to his current position to do full time work on the development and implementation of hydrogen, biomass and solar related energy systems after spending 10 years in the Aero-Thermal Dynamics department of the Scientific Labs of Chrysler Corporation, where he was a pioneer member of the group that developed and implemented successful Speed to Market development concepts.

STEVEN-HARRIS1

Steve’s interview is about Self Reliance Preparedness – Everything You Need to Know About Batteries and More. Steven Harris covers ALL Batteries that you can use in Preparedness. Alkaline, Lithium, NiMH, NiCD and Lithium Ion Batteries. AAA, AA, C, D, 9V, CR123, RCR123, 14500, 16240, 18650, 26650’s and more.

Nathan Crane brings Sam Coffman as next interviewee.Sam began his medical education in the military as a U.S. Special Forces Medic in 1989. At that same time, he became highly interested in herbalism as a way to provide health care in remote regions with a minimum of medical supplies, both for acute care and trauma as well as for chronic conditions. This was the start of a long journey into the world of plant medicine for Sam. Sam founded and runs a survival and herbalism school called The Human Path offering complete clinical herbalism courses in the central Texas region.

SAM-COFFMAN-SELF-RELIANCE

Sam talks about Sustainable Medicine and the Human Community. Plant medicine is a way to bring an entire community together much in the same way that any group of animals gather around a watering hole. This vital idea of health care that we can all contribute to and be a part of is an idea that fixes the human condition on many levels. It creates community and harmony where that might not have existed. It creates a vital connection between the planet and the human species. It creates a sense of responsibility at the personal level, which contributes to better health on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Sam Coffman discusses some of the ways in which he has introduced sustainable medicine and nutrition into communities around the country and around the world in order to begin to bring families and neighborhoods together in a solidarity of human survival with the planet rather than in spite of it.

The Self Reliance Summit 2016 Day Five

Nathan Crane is interviewing Sacha Stone today. Sacha is Founder of Humanitad, the NewEarth Project, and the International Tribunal for Natural Justice. While he’s outspoken against the centralization of power and of multilateral institutional manipulation. Sacha Stone produced the MDG Awards ceremony on the floor of the General Assembly at the United Nations in 2009 in an order to engage with the mechanics of centralized power. It was at this event where Archbishop Desmond Tutu propounded the word Ubuntu, which is fast becoming a major pattern for international socio-ecological reform. Sacha has a plethora of global experience and we’re honored to have him with us.

SACHA-STONE-SELF-RELIANCE

How to Become Politically and Socially Free
 is a topic near Sacha’s heart. How being and doing relate to time and space, fear and desire and duality itself, so long as they are not enjoined. Taking the subject further – exploring how synthesizing being and doing equates to sovereign expression and consciousness-in-action, therefore availing to us the alchemy of manifestation in the temporal realms. Claiming ones true voice, owning ones expression and no longer asking for permission as the new credo for spiritual and conscious evolution.

Paul Lenda is next person to be interviewed by Nathan Crane. Paul is a conscious evolution guide, writer, speaker, workshop facilitator, and life coach wishing to provide an integral role in one’s personal transformation and the collective social transformation of humanity. Paul has degrees in business and psychology, over a decade of extensive spiritual practice, a drive for esoteric knowledge and strives to see and understand the wider horizon of Reality.

PAUL-LENDA-SELF-RELIANCE

Paul’s discussion is on Creating a Localized & Regenerative Society. The present global economy has significant environmental, social, and spiritual costs that can eventually lead us to a dystopic future. Instead of human society measuring progress by infinite economic growth at all costs, a shift towards a localized and regenerative model for measuring progress needs to be made. This talk will focus on the benefits of decentralized localization and the need to go beyond sustainability towards regenerative design.

The Self Reliance Summit 2016 Day Four

Nathan Crane interviews Gabriel Cousens on the fourth day, who is the author of twelve internationally acclaimed books including Conscious Eating and Spiritual Nutrition. Known worldwide as a spiritual teacher and the leading expert in raw, live, plant-source nutrition, Dr. Cousens functions as a holistic physician, psychiatrist, family therapist, and cutting edge researcher on healing diabetes naturally. His multi-cultural background as an ordained rabbi, an acknowledged yogi, and a four-year Native American Sundancer, adds insight to his “whole-person enlightenment” teachings.

GABRIEL-COUSENS-SELF-RELIANCE

His topic is Peace With the Ecology.The Essene Sevenfold Peace is an ancient liberation path recently revivified within the context of the Living Essene Way. Peace with the Ecology is essential in nourishing a global environment that supports the spiritual evolution of humanity. As we move away from a perspective of stewardship and towards the realization of our collective oneness with Nature, we uncover the true meaning of our divinely ordained dominion.

Shayna Gladstone is our next candidate in the summit. Her personality shines with radiant smile. Shayna empowers others to re-wild themselves through her tech start up, NuMundo, her music, her Earth Journeys and her permaculture lifestyle. Shayna is also the founder of Dream Activation, guiding individuals and teams through the dream and strategy of igniting their visions. A life-long performer, organizer and earth activist, Shayna has been “working” hard to empower others to live in right relations with each other, our communities and the earth.

SHAYNA-GLADSTONE-SELF-RELIANCE

She speaks about realizing our Oneness with Nature and Aligning with Your Life’s Passion and Purpose. She says we are not separate from nature. We ARE nature. This radical shift in consciousness must be spread far and wide. The idea that we are supreme and separate from nature is a global disease that has created consumeristic monsters with a disconnect from what it’s doing to the fragile ecosystem. She poses following questions to the audience. How can we facilitate the health of ecosystems in our daily lives? What do we have to learn from indigenous wisdom? How can we re-write our cultural narratives? What do we have to learn from nature? In her talk, she will explore the themes of oneness with nature, the importance of preserving and learning from our ancestors, and ways that we can begin to live in a harmonious way with the land.
