The dictionary definition of mojo is:
a power that may seem magical and that allows someone to be very effective, successful, etc
Our mojo is our essence, It's our vitality, our life force, it's what animates us.
When we're in touch with this essence or life force, anything is possible.
Recently, I had a friend come back from the UK and she needed to find herself a new job and home, quickly. When we spoke over email I could tell she was fully charged and connected to her mojo again. I could just feel the positivity in her message.
Needing a job and home could feel pretty stressful for some (and normally it would for her too) but she secured a job before she arrived and got the first apartment she looked at…and it was perfect for her. First week back she was working and moving!
I just remember thinking the whole time it would work out for her because she was in the flow again.
Ever noticed that?
When we've lost ‘it', when we've lost touch with our mojo, everything is a struggle. It's a struggle to get out of bed in the morning. Everything feels like hard work. Things don't work out and there are lots of challenges.
You can tell when someone has lost their mojo. Not only by the way they look or words they use, but the energy they give off.
Sales people tell me that when they are off their game it's because they've lost their mojo. Without it, they can't make sales.
When you're on your game, you can move mountains!
When you've lost your mojo – the mountains seems 10x higher and impossible to move.
How do we ‘lose' our mojo?
Some of my clients will say “Something is missing or not quiet right”, or “everything feels hard” or, “I feel like there's no life force inside of me”, or “I feel like I'm dead on the inside”.
When we've disconnected from our essence, what do we have to live off?
Adrenal energy, mental energy or physical (food as fuel) energy – all very important but none are long-lasting. And they don't animate us and make us feel alive!
Our mojo is our spark, our internal flame that makes us who we are and brings us to life. It's the fundamental source of our inspiration and aliveness
BUT, when we are caught up in our ‘problems' and our thinking we get cut off from our mojo. Most of us don't notice this initially, but we can tell something is off.
Work is not as fulfilling. Business feels too hard. Not enjoying family or partner etc.
Regardless of what the problem we think we have our only real problem is that we have cut off from our own innate wellbeing, in other words, our mojo.
The moment we reconnect to the Source energy, our problems stop being so problematic.
Ever notice how some days your problems seem like like a VERY big deal and the next day – not so much?! I do, all the time.
The only thing we're ever up against in life is our level of connection or disconnection with Life Force.
Within the body, the same principles apply! In Naturopathic philosophy we understand the healing agent within the body is ‘Vital Force' the life force that moves through the physical body.
Our job as practitioners is to remove blocks to the vital force using the tools in our pharmacy – herbal medicine, nutrition, mind and spirit medicine.
Our body is self-healing because of this ever present vital force. It's the same force that heals a cut finger or broken bone, allows people to heal from seemingly incurable illness, creates babies in bellies and brings our genius to life.
The only thing we need to do is pay attention to how much presence of mind we have. How much of your mojo do you have right now?
Because when you have your mojo, you're going to do the very best you can with everything, and when you're disconnected, you will struggle with really simple things.
Your feelings will be your guide – how are you feeling right now? On your game? Buzzing with aliveness? Making molehills out of mountains?
