Are you sparky? Get some juice from the Apricot Power of Inspiration

Posted by Jamie and Chaya | Posted on 09-20-2013

Inspired….juiced, ignited, filled to the brim with a sense of wonderment and magic. Is this you?  Maybe not every day or all the time, but would you say you have a general feeling of being “lit up” by life? Kinda like that childlike spark just never left you? If you do, consider yourself among the fortunate. Life events often take a toll on many people’s ability to feel inspired.

What’s it like to live without inspiration?

You might feel….

  • Bored with the same old routine you follow every day…but lacking any ideas or energy to change it.
  • Burned out, or low on the mojo to turn your ideas into a reality.
  • Like your food is bland, conversations are dull, and the sky is always grey.
  • Like you’ve settled for a mediocre relationship or go-nowhere job.
  • The urge to roll your eyes at the next person who tells you to stop being so busy and take time to “smell the roses”.


Who wants boring when you can feel that

spring in your step and sparkle in your eye?

Chaya here…

Not too long ago, I discovered First, you choose the categories that inspire you. I chose gardening, self-improvement, quotes, animals, vegetarian, fitness, and humor to get started.

Now, I get a little treat by clicking a button that says “Stumble”. It randomly gives me something from the world wide web that it thinks I would like….photographs, videos, articles and quotations that line up with my interests.

Many of my stumbles uplift and inspire me and give me new ideas for my own garden, my own cooking, my own life. Or I stumble upon a quote that changes my attitude for the better.

I’ll admit…..I’m feeling a little addicted. I’m often saying to myself, “Just one more stumble and then I’ll stop.”

So, is that bad? Is that a waste of time? John Lennon said, “The time you enjoy wasting is not truly wasted time.”

I would amend that to, “The time you spend finding and doing the things that inspire you is time used wisely.” Ok, it doesn’t sound as cool as John’s quote, but you get the gist.

There were many years of my life when I wasn’t consciously doing something that would inspire me.  And, the opposite of inspired is depressed….yeah, been there, and in all that grey area in between where blah and so-so live.

Personally, I find inspired to be the most alive place along that continuum. So, anything I can do, anywhere I can find it, I’m going there….because inspiration beats anti-depressants any day.

Where do you find your sparks of inspiration?


Whatever wakes you up to the wonder of life

is the key to your inspirational liberation!

When you’re lit up with the Power of Inspiration, you will…

  • Be full of ideas and the passion to take action!
  • Feel enlivened by nature, art, food, movies, and new ideas.
  • Smell the fresh air, savor the yummy food, and feel that spark of aliveness in everything you do.
  • Never settle for the ordinary, and never be bored. You’re alive with sizzle!
  • Let that creativity inside you burst forth, and have fun tweaking all  the things that aren’t great in your life – like your relationships – until they’re so fantastic you want to shout from the mountaintops.

2 steps to wake up the Apricot Power of Inspiration in your life:
#1: Are you tired of tolerating a constant low grade boredom in your life?  Next time you realize that you’re dragging yourself through another painfully flat day, say or sing this affirmation to yourself 7 times,

“I live an inspired life!”

Then ask yourself, “What would juice me right now?” Zero in on that one thing and dive in!

#2: Take Inspiration Vibrancy Essence every time you notice yourself settling for “just okay” or “mediocre.” Take 7 drops, then tap into your creative side and come up with a new way to spice things up ~ re-engage your childlike fascination with life. Think like Peter Pan!


Stop and smell the roses, or stumble, or whatever it is that

fills your senses and enlivens your cells!

“To succeed you need to find something to hold on to,
 something to motivate you, something to inspire you.”

~ Tony Dorsett


Just have to share this cute video/movie. It’s about 7 minutes long, but it’s a wonderful example of the magic that’s created out of inspiration.


Live inspired!
