How To Live In The Aloha Spirit!

Are you ready to change your life? What if you could live with a spirit of adventure, gratitude and harmony? What would that look like for you?

I love the Hawaiian Islands! My wife and I have spent many wonderful days, scuba diving, whale watching, hanging out on all the beautiful beaches, sightseeing to the magnificent natural treasures that the islands have to offer and just having an adventure beyond compare. I always dislike having to leave because our time in paradise is so spectacular. I love the Aloha Spirit!

As I was driving down the road yesterday, I heard an interview with spiritual guru Wayne Dyer who lives in Maui, and he mentioned The Aloha Spirit. I knew immediately that I had to write about this amazing way of living. Now to all of my Hawaiian friends I hope you will chime in and comment on any of the ideas I’m throwing out here and agree or correct based on your personal experience.

As I understand it, Aloha is a Hawaiian word meaning love, friendship, compassion, and charity, as well as, in its roots, “The joyful sharing of loving energy in the present moment.” For this reason the Hawaiians also use the same word for happy greetings and farewells.

I always feel a sense of being blessed when I hear people greet me with “Aloha!” It has a deeper sense of meaning than just saying hello or goodbye. When done in a sincere way it has a spiritual feeling that just leaves you feeling like you’ve been caressed with love. What would happen in our world if we all decided to live each day with this Aloha Spirit? I think it’s a choice we can all make right now and in the process begin to live lives that are healthier, happier, and more prosperous. It would allow us to create more love in our life, enhance our friendships, get a deeper experience of inner peace, and spiritual growth.

In living an Aloha life, I believe we have a responsibility to the gifts we’ve been given. We have been given this earth, all of nature, and the seas to watch over and protect. If we choose to live in the Aloha Spirit, we need to act as leaders who by example promote the protection and healing of our planet and all its natural resource.

Let’s take the time to explore nature, to use that time to reflect on who we are, what we hope to achieve in our lifetime and what kind of legacy we want to leave. Let’s lead with love, hope for a better tomorrow, a compassion for our fellow man, and a spiritual growth that inspires others to join us on our journey.

Life is a grand adventure, so let’s live in harmony, joy and peace. Let us cherish, respect and protect all that we’ve been blessed with and in doing so we will bless future generations with boundless natural gifts. Let’s make our world a better place, live with the Aloha Spirit!

So until we meet again, here’s a  big ALOHA! Pass it along to everyone you meet!

Question: “What are you willing to do today, to kickstart your Aloha Spirit and live an Aloha Life?

  1. We can reflect daily in cracks of time. Recenter your day in 10 minute increments:
    Take a break and sit near a tree and notice little creatures everywhere.
    Stretch and pray
    Don’t go forward on tilt! Pause and reflect on the essential mission of your life.
    Love your pet.
    Send your spouse a text: I love you most!
    Listen, Listen, Listen…it is a very quiet place.
    Give something away.
    Say Thank You a lot!
    Be yourself.

  2. Whether you live in a house, condo, apt or tent, we should all have a personal space to re energize. Though I have always had a yard with flowers and plants, I am currently going one step further and creating a retreat. I don’t travel much anymore, but spend some wonderful times both working and relaxing in Hawaii so I appreciate the importance of creating a place of solace were I live – to be able to walk out to my side yard and think, rest, read, watch my dogs play and listen to the waterfall, crows, bees, and quiet neighborhood sounds. I know I am blessed, just remember your mind doesn’t know you did not travel or move from your living room – close your eyes for 15minutes and pull up an image of where you would like to be – you may be in a small space, but your mind is as big as you allow and you body will enjoy the trip.
