What Would Eckhart Tolle Do?

What Would Eckhart Tolle Do?

My sister and I have a favourite game. When life gets tough and we’re finding it hard to stay present, do our chakra meditations and keep our vibrations raised, we ask ourselves:

“What would Eckhart Tolle do now?”

This simple question instantly aligns us with how we desire to feel, and helps us get clear about how we are resisting the present moment.

If you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you’ll know I’m a big Tolle fan.

I talk about him and his amazing book, The Power of Now, all the time to all those that will listen!

That’s because this book catapulted me into a wondrous new life, and through it I discovered the White Light and my life’s purpose.

I’m also honest about the fact that I’m an Eckhart Tolle wannabe: I wanna be peaced out, blissful and “master-like” just like he is.

I have no shame in stating that I’m going for enlightenment…

So when I’m having an “ego moment,” I take a deep breath and say to myself, “What would Eckhart Tolle do right now?”

And it mostly always works wonderfully.

How “Channeling” Mr Tolle Peaced Me Out Last Week

* Last Friday before my Level 3 weekend workshop.

I was feeling stressed because I hadn’t fully prepared for my Level 3 workshop.

It wasn’t only because I’d had a big week and had struggled to find the time. It was also because I knew my SoMM Level 3 students (School of the Modern Mystic) were at different places in their journey, and to accommodate all their needs in one weekend workshop would be challenging.

While I was lying in the bath, I was running through it all in my mind.

Should I teach this? Should we do that exercise?

How many people have already met their soul essences? Would they all need a White Light transmission?

Going round and round in circles in my mind wasn’t getting me anywhere, so I took a deep breath and asked myself, “What would Eckhart do now?”

I closed my eyes and imagined myself stepping into his shoes.

I instantly felt the “weight” of my upcoming workshop leave me and it was replaced with buoyancy and lightness, and I knew then that the present moment would provide everything I needed to make this workshop magical.

The right words would find me at the right time. The right pace of learning would be set by the “internal clock of life,” I just needed to follow it.

And the right questions would be asked so that all of the participants could receive everything they needed to easily and effortlessly continue the journey.

Eckhart wouldn’t worry about an unplanned workshop. He’d let life flow it through him!

* Last tuesday evening while putting my 5 year old to bed.

I was tired, grumpy and not in the mood for playing “Barbie” before bedtime story time.

Not only do I have an aversion to my daughter’s fascination with Barbie – Barbie is not my role model of choice for young girls – I didn’t feel like pretending to strut around in high heels, go shopping for handbags and brush my long blonde hair.

Sarah, my daughter, knows that she can choose one game before bed, and not wanting to be a party pooper and ruin it for her, I (grumpily) played along.

But as the game dragged on and Barbie’s shopping spree became more elaborate and complicated – children love making games complicated – I could hear myself getting snappy with her.

So I tried the “What would Eckhart Tolle do?” question, and it worked like a charm.

It made me laugh visualising him with long blonde hair and high heels role playing with my 5 year old in her room. Picturing Eckhart playing Barbie was so hilarious that it instantly snapped me out of my mood!

I love the “What would Eckhart Tolle do now?” game. It instantly aligns me with joy and lightness.

In White Light + Love,

Belinda

How to stay calm and confident in a world going crazy

Is this missing from your spiritual practice?

In a world filled with polarity, hatred, violence, division, and chaos, we can be the bearers and bringers of the light by practicing loving compassion towards ourselves and others. Practicing loving compassion isn’t a difficult thing to do. It simply means trying to see the light in others—or the shadow: the hurt, pain, and suffering.

Having spiritual discernment in the New Age

It’s important not to confuse metaphysical skill with spirituality. Not all people that display strong psychic, healing, or magical abilities have your best interests at heart.

Dear Friend, You are deeply loved, more deeply than you know. The entire fabric of the Universe is made up of love, and you are a tiny thread in that fabric of the Universe. You are love. Breathe in deep, and feel the fullness of love all around you.

Life has served me some severe blows in the last two years. I’ve experienced deep loss and pain, that at times, makes me feel like I don’t want to take another…


Belinda Davidson - Modern Mystic

Yesterday I gave an impromptu Facebook Live.It was in response to something I posted a few days ago, where I talked about living with a neurological condition, and the trauma of being in and out of emergency last year with massive migraines, seizures, and vertigo attacks.


How to stay strong in your energy (and not get dragged down by others)

I’m sure you’ve had the experience. You’re talking to someone and suddenly you feel strange. It doesn’t happen right away—somewhere about 15 - 20 minutes into the conversation. An odd spacey feeling creeps over you. The person keeps talking. You’re listening, nodding, agreeing. All the while, the odd feeling grows. You’re feeling more and more drained. Flat, too.


Belinda Davidson, You Spoke. I Listened. And This is What I Created for You

Sometime last year, I asked people subscribed to my newsletter how I can better serve them. I asked them to fill out a questionnaire, telling me about their stresses, struggles, challenges, as well as deepest wishes and desires. 1,202 people filled out the questionnaire. I read each and every one of the responses, multiple times. Being helpful and of service to you is important to me.


Belinda Davidson, Be Blessed. Not Stressed

It doesn’t matter how much you “get done” or achieve. If it isn’t coming from high vibration and a mindful state, you aren’t attributing anything of true substance to the world.


Struggling to stay focused when you’re meditating? Can’t get through a whole chakra cleanse? Can’t stop the monkey mind? Or perhaps you want to go deeper into each one of your chakras and feel and experience the power and magic of your amazing energy field and energy anatomy?
