It’s Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to another short solo episode of Minutes on Growth. The other day, I was having a discussion with one of the members of my Rumi & Shams poetry club, that I would like to share with you.
We are discussing one of Rumi’s poems, where he writes, You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?
She said that when she heard this line, all she could imagine was the elephants back in her home country India, that lost their strength as soon as they were chained by their feet. How is that possible? Elephants are big and heavy animals that can easily kill someone by simply stepping on them, but when humans put on a small chain around one foot, they suddenly forget all their power and just surrender.
I’ve noticed that it’s the same with human beings. We are all born with unlimited potential and greatness stored within us. However, over the years, as a result of social conditioning, we seem to become like the elephant, forgetting our truth and losing our strength. We forget that we’re born with wings, and instead of crawl through life.
The older we get, the more we lose sight of the divinely unique purpose that is stored safely inside of our heart. We forget to tap into our unique talents and we overlook our passions. We think small. We act small.
But I’m here to remind you of your power, of your greatness, of the realm of infinite possibilities that is within you.
All you need to do is remove those chains that have kept you stagnant for all these years, that has kept you trapped in a box. Now, these chains can be the limiting beliefs you’re holding on to, the belief that only x amount of people can follow their purpose and generate tremendous wealth doing so, or the belief that you need to be lucky to be successful. These chains can be the lies you’ve told yourself, that you’re not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough.
I need you to remember that the same mind that can create chains, can also break free from them. It’s all in your control
So today, ask yourself, how have you kept yourself from growing into your highest-self, your highest-vision and once you are reminded of your truth, and of the great vision that was designed for your soul, then take inspired action towards it.
Thank you for listening, speak soon.
Hi everyone, Its Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to another short solo episode of Minutes on Growth. Yesterday a close friend of mine called me and in the middle of our conversation she said something that made me pause and think. She had this belief that as a result of having so many blessings in her life, god was sending painful emotions and circumstances to her to balance out the scales. This belief of hers made me think a lot about all the other beliefs that we carry within us about pain and suffering.
From a spiritual perspective, pain and suffering is always looked upon as a blessing.
The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that in order to remove pain and suffering from the world, all we need to do is remove pain and suffering from one person. And in order to do that, we need to have experienced the pain ourself. When we go through things, our soul gets qualified to help other people in those exact same areas. When we feel our own pain, we can then help others heal. So our pain isn’t here so that we suffer or as a form of punishment, but rather it’s a gift to heal other people.
Ever heard of the expression, turn your mess into a message? There are 7 billion people on this planet, and while no one has experienced the exact same journey as you, many have experienced similar pains. As a result of your journey, you have experienced many insights, cultivated many talents that you are now responsible to share with the world.
When we share our story, transformation occurs. When we share our pain with the world, healing happens.
However often times, we wait until the mess is finished to turn it into a message. Who said that you can’t heal yourself and other simultaneously? Use your pain to elevate not only your level of consciousness, but the collective consciousness as well.
When you’re feeling pain, be thankful, because you now know that with awareness something great is going to come out of it.
Have you ever sat down and thought about some of the pains you’ve experienced in the past, and how as a result of them, your journey in life changed for the better?
As a child my father always told me that our life is like a coil spring. When we are experiencing pain, we get compressed to our lowest point. But that just means that once we’re through with it, we’re going to jump up to our highest point. That’s how coil springs work right? This belief has made me embrace pain because I now believe that everything in life is divinely orchestrated for your highest good.
Deepak Chopra always says that all great things are preceded by chaos.
So today embrace the chaos. Embrace the pain. And allow greatness to come out of it. Allow growth to come out of it. Allow healing to come out of it. Allow elevated awareness and consciousness to come out of it.
Sending you love – Thank you for listening, speak soon.
Hi Soul Friends, Its Tannaz Hosseinpour, and welcome to another short solo cast of Minutes on Growth. This week I want to speak about purpose. Let me start by saying that 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐌𝐀𝐓𝐓𝐄𝐑𝐒 – 𝐢𝐭 is 𝐍𝐎𝐓 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞.
Because the universe makes no mistakes.
Every single person is born with a 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐬𝐚𝐟𝐞𝐥𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐬𝐨𝐮𝐥 & 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 that will make the world a better place.
To complement that purpose, they’re gifted a set of 𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐪𝐮𝐞 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬, 𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 & 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐬.
It is then 𝐎𝐔𝐑 responsibility to discover these magical gems, our truth, and to live life to our 𝐇𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐄𝐒𝐓 𝐩𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐥.
It is 𝐎𝐔𝐑 responsibility to 𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐞 because that light enhances lives.
It is 𝐎𝐔𝐑 responsibility to believe that our 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 on this physical realm, right now, at this very moment, truly 𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬, because it DOES.
However, often times when we are 𝐮𝐧𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞 of our gifts & purpose, we betray ourself with negative self talk. We stop believing in ourself. We dim our light. We self-sabotage.
Diminishing your potential and inner light is an act of self-betrayal
But what if you haven’t discovered your reason, your true calling, your purpose yet? I recently released a FREE 7 part Mini Series on Instagram to help you gain insights into your purpose. My instagram handle is @minutesongrowth and there is a Life Purpose highlight on the main feed, and if you’re interested to dive deeper, I also have a self-paced online course that covers all those 7 topics in much more detail. It is guaranteed to answer your “Why am I here?” question.
You see your presence truly matters. It always has. It always will.
You just need to believe it.
I was listening to a podcast the other day where the host shared a story that I want to share with you. He said imagine you buy a million dollar lottery ticket, and place it in your pocket. The ticket you bought is the winning ticket but you have absolutely no idea as you haven’t had a chance to check yet. At that point in your life, you’ve now become a millionaire but you just don’t know it yet. Until at some point, days later, you check the numbers and realize that you are the winner, you are a millionaire. Has anything changed throughout the hours? No, the ticket was always in your pocket. You’ve been a millionaire for some time, its just that NOW you actually know it.
It’s the same with your greatness. You have ALWAYS been great, you just need to know it now. Knowing it can become easier when we embark on a journey of self-discovery, where we discover our talents, & passions, where we get know ourself better. We usually study everything else except ourself, so today, I ask you to please put some time aside for yourself, discover your truth, discover yourself so that you can live a meaningful and fulfilled now
& never forget how great you are. Your presence matters. Believe it. Know it
Sending you lots of love, speak soon.
Hi everyone, its Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to another solo episode of Minutes on Growth.
When my mind is in overdrive, I sometimes like to watch reality tv. As I was watching one particular Real housewives episode, I noticed that I had spent a good 30 minutes watching grown women gossip about one another continuously, which got me thinking about the overall action of gossiping. Why do we gossip? It never really solves anything. I mean most of the drama on the show is because they are gossiping, so nothing really good comes out of it. So why do we feel the need to engage in it?
You see, when we gossip, we’re operating out of a scarcity mindset – we’re talking from a place of judgment, comparison and doubt. These are all low vibrational, low frequency emotions, so in other words we are creating a negative energetic field around ourself, and then once we’re done gossiping, we continue walking through the day with that cloud of negativity following us. So not only have we hurt another person but ultimately we have hurt our own state of wellbeing as well, hence why it’s so poisonous.
A few years ago, one of my mentors told me something that blew my mind. She said its impossible for you to recognize a trait within someone else if it’s not present within you at some level. If you think someone is jealous of you, then perhaps that trait it within you otherwise you wouldn’t have noticed it. It might be at different levels but the seed is there.
Since learning this, I’ve become really conscious of gossiping. Whenever I find myself gossiping about someone, I try to bring my awareness back to my statement. I ask myself, what part of myself needs healing and awareness? What trait of the other person is triggering my wounds?
Do I still sometimes gossip? As much as I’d like to say no, the answer is yes. Even though I try my best to not engage in this toxic behaviour, I’m only human, and I too fail. I have however noticed that when I do tend to fail and gossip, I’m usually doing it with the same people. So community plays a major role in this as well. Who are you surrounding yourself with? What activities are you engaging with when you’re with them? How do you feel when you’re with them? How do you feel when you’ve left them? This is why we need to be really intentional with our community and how we spend our time. I talk a lot about this in my Discover Your Purpose Online course so if you’d like to learn more about how you can create an empowering community for yourself then check it out.
Another great way to restrict yourself from gossiping is to practice the socrates test – whenever you find yourself wanting to gossip, ask yourself, is what I am about to share with others true? is it positive and good? and lastly is it useful? Not everything we say must be useful, but it needs to be true or good so If it’s not good or true, refrain from engaging. Everything becomes a habit when we repeat it over and over again, so we can program our mind to automatically pass statements through this test.
So today if you catch yourself judging someone else, take a moment and pause. Ask yourself, where are these thoughts coming from? What part of my soul needs my attention? How can I shift from this scarcity mindset to an abundant one? and lastly is it true, good or useful?
Remember, what you focus on expands,
Sending you lots of love, speak soon.
Hi Soul-Friends, welcome to another solo episode of Minutes on Growth. A couple of weeks ago, as I was navigating through a bubble of confusion, I felt a sudden urge to reach out to my spiritual mentor at the Kabbalah centre. He informed me that the foundational course Kabbalah 1 for the first time ever was taking place online, being taught by Marcus Weston and that it was starting within 2 hours. Could that have been a coincidence? I don’t think so. I took this as an immediate sign from the universe to enrol in this transformational program once again(for the third time I must add), to remind myself of all the practical tools that I can use in my day to day life to enhance not only the quality of my life, but my overall state of consciousness. I have spent the past 8 weeks, signing in for an hour a week listening to my teacher remind us of how magical life is. Reminding us that nothing is a coincidence and that everything is divinely orchestrated. He’s been reminding us that every challenge that comes up in our life is an opportunity for us to grow from. We always have the choice to either respond with awareness and to use that challenge for our highest vision, or to allow the ego to keep us stagnant and stuck in old patterns.
Last week, even though my course has not finished yet, I decided to enrol in the second Kabbalah 1 class taught by another teacher , the amazing David Ghiyam, that is taking place online , because while the material is the same, there is a major difference in the way teachers explain them, and there is always something new to learn. There is an abundance of wisdom that is being shared through different people all the time. & I was not wrong. On the first day of class, David reminded me of a practical tool that I often times forget about. The power of Pause. In Kabbalah, we’re taught that the only way we can move forward is by not reacting. When we react, it is our ego that is narrating the story. It is our goal to silence and transcend the ego, & to allow for the soul and the light to shine.
So in other words, whenever we’re feeling doubt, anger or lack and we’re triggered, and we want to react a certain way, we PAUSE instead. Once we’ve paused, we need to rejoice in our pause. We need to let the universe know that we are happy to pause. Some argue that this is similar to suppressing your emotions or bottling it up. But it’s not. When a situation arises that triggers us, when a challenge arises, we want to pause, we want to express our pleasure in the pause because we know that this challenge means that our soul is READY to transcend to the next level. This is a test from the universe to see if we’re ready to grow. If we pause, and allow the light, god, source, energy to guide us, we evolve. If however, the ego reacts, we stay in the same situation, and the pattern once again continues. Every challenge is an opportunity. Every single challenge.
Is pausing easy? not really, but it’s important that we try. No matter how many times we fail by reacting, we allow ourself to try again. Our purpose in life is to evolve. Our purpose in life is to leave it better than how we entered it. If you’re listening to this episode, I know that you believe this too.
I want to add that all that I just said is simply my perspective. Is it 100% right? Probably not. No one’s perspective is 100% right, it’s simply their perspective. But let me ask you think, what world would you rather live in? In a world where challenges are perceived as opportunities for growth or in a world where challenges push you into a victimhood consciousness – where you believe that the universe is punishing you or that you’re not worthy of lets say a quote on quote easy life? I choose to be in the first category because the first belief empowers me to grow.
So today, just for today, are you wiling to shift your perspective to look at every challenge through a new light? Are you willing to silence the ego to allow the light to come in? Are you willing to not react and simply pause?
Thank you for listening, Speak soon.
