Fall colors, octopus, Vangelis, Layman’s Commandments, super hero, and strengthening the immune system


OMG! Need I say more?!



# 1 – And another wow! Mother Nature has such a great imagination. :-)


# 2 – A feast for the senses…..



# 3 – A sweet being shared something recently with me ( thanks Rekha!) called “The Layman’s 10 Commandments. Here’s some of the list….

1. Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout the journey.

2. So why is a car’s WINDSHIELD so large and the Rear View Mirror so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.

3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few minutes to burn, but it takes years to write.

4. All things in life are temporary. If they’re going well, enjoy them… they will not last forever. If they’re going wrong, don’t worry… they can’t last long either.

5. A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied, “Yes, losing your vision!”

6. WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES… it takes away today’s PEACE.


# 4 – Wenda of Health, Wellness and Success has written a stimulating and thought-provoking post about how to be a super hero. I dare you to read it and not be inspired!



# 5 – And check these latest posts at Self-help Health for ways to strengthen your immune system….

Inspiring quotes, freedom sooner, co-operation, your temple, free events, and Abraham




# 1 – An inspiring, thought-provoking, insight-producing post from Paging Mrs Zen featuring 20 quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh…..



# 2 – A short post from Dr. Sue Morter on being freer by being authentic….

Freedom Sooner 

Not only does everything in creation exist inside of you, it is what you’re made of. You are that.

We are supposed to be brilliantly alive and amazingly free. There are ways for freedom to express itself inside of you that you have not yet accessed. We can get to freedom sooner. We do not have to do so many of the things we thought we had to do in order to have the love that we’ve been seeking. Everyone is hiding behind what they think they are supposed to say and do in order to be loved. We are collectively creating this illusion that we’re all trying to live in. It’s kind of crazy! We can live in the truth instead. We can choose loving authenticity.

# 4 – It’s all about co-operation and helping each other….a short 1 minute animation on the subject…..


# 5 – Events to check out…..

en*theos is hosting the Healthy Revolution 2014 event with Experience Life Magazine. Beginning Monday October 20, The Experience Life editorial team will be talking with some leading experts at the forefront of healthy living, tossing around topics like feeding your body, detoxing your home, de-stressing your life, and finding time for it all.

Welcome Text



# 6 – This is a really good one to keep in mind from Abraham….

Make lists of positive aspects. Make lists of things you love—and never complain about anything. And as you use those things that shine bright and make you feel good as your excuse to give your attention and be who-you-are, you will tune to who-you-are, and the whole world will begin to transform before your eyes. It is not your job to transform the world for others—but it is your job to transform it for you. A state of appreciation is pure Connection to Source where there is no perception of lack.—Abraham

Well-chosen words, Mother Nature, better questions, set an example, and Abraham


A recent Note From the Universe (tut.com) sent to my inbox…

When you understand, Zirah, that what most people really, really want is simply to feel good about themselves, and when you realize that with just a few well-chosen words you can help virtually anyone on the planet instantly achieve this, you begin to realize just how simple life is, how powerful you are, and that love is the key.

Fly little bird,
The Universe



# 1 –  Wow, Mother Nature does it AGAIN! (photo by Ben Gilberti)


# 2 – A stimulating, thought-provoking, insight-producing post on asking better questions….

Most of us want to improve some area of our lives, however at times this can be easier said than done. They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. This is very true. Another definition could also be asking the same questions over and over again and expecting a different result.  I was reflecting to myself the other day, on the importance of asking ourselves the right questions.

Our lives are filled with opportunities and challenges every day. Often times it can be our negative view points, poor attitudes or limiting beliefs which can block us from creating solutions to our problems. We could have a job we hate, be struggling financially, be in a relationship that isn’t fullfilling or have other problems. Many of us have been guilty, myself included, of going into the cycle of focusing on the problem by complaining and blaming, however this way of responding rarely gets us positive results.

Read the rest of the post:


FYI, I happened to leave the comment there that I thought a great question to ask, especially when experiencing/going through a difficult situation, is “What’s the (hidden) blessing in this?” Sometimes it’s not apparent that there is one until we are open to discovering/seeing it . :-) What do YOU think is a good question to ask?


# 3 -


# 4 – And Abe’s take on things….

There are those that say, if you do the uncomfortable thing long enough, it will become comfortable. But we are really not encouragers of that. We are encouragers of coming into alignment, and then taking the action. We are encouragers always of getting rid of the fear; we would never want you to keep doing things that you feel fearful about. And maybe the path of least resistance is just not get on the horse. Maybe the path of least resistance is to get on a different horse—but we would never move forward in fear.—Abraham

Being yourself, surround yourself, love yourself, fall colors, free health series, and intuition



# 1 – Good one!


# 2 – I came across this recently on Facebook and loved the words…..a beautiful reminder from Indian spiritual teacher Sri Nisargadatta. Seemed to fit nicely with Tips # 1 & #3…..

“All you need is already within you, only you must approach your self with reverence and love. Self-condemnation and self-distrust are grievous errors. Your constant flight from pain and search for pleasure is a sign of love you bear for your self; all I plead with you is this: make love of your self perfect. Deny yourself nothing – give your self infinity and eternity and discover that you do not need them; you are beyond.”


# 3 – Love this image and text…


# 4 – Wow, Mother Nature doing her fall thing….



# 5 – Two great-sounding free health series starting tomorrow, and they’re FREE….



# 6 – An thought-provoking post on following your intuition/inner guidance by Edward Mills of The Abundant Mystic…..

Take this exit.”


“Take this exit.”

“Why? You know this way takes at least 5-minutes longer!”

“Take this exit.”

It wasn’t exactly a conversation. Not as if someone was sitting in the car next to me, navigating.

More like a feeling or a knowing sense that came from deep within me.

It was 1997 and I was about 6-months into a 2-year Intuition Medicine Certification training and my inner guidance was definitely ramping up.

But my previously dominant analytical mind was still mostly in charge… and definitely wanting to keep it that way!

IT decided that it made absolutely no LOGICAL sense to take the route home that would be 5-minutes longer.

So we stayed on the freeway.

Well, wouldn’t you know it… there was an accident on the freeway! And our 5-minute shorter drive home ended up taking 25-minutes LONGER!

The longer we sat in that traffic jam the more I could sense my analytical mind slinking back into the corner.

Now, the cool thing is that the intuitive mind doesn’t go around saying “I told you so!” Unlike my analytical mind which is very adept – and loud – at pointing out when it has made the “right” decision.

No, the intuitive mind does not toot its own horn. It offers guidance quietly and consistently and is content whether you follow that guidance or not.

So experiences such as this one were crucial at that time in my intuitive development.

You see, if I had followed my intuitive guidance and gone the way it suggested I never would have “known” that my intuition was accurate. My analytical mind would have poo-pooed the decision, insisting that we had just wasted 5 entire minutes going the “wrong” way.

But because I didn’t follow my intuitive guidance we received crystal clear confirmation that the guidance was accurate and would have actually saved us 20-minutes!

This is a very important stage in almost everyone’s awakening journey.

Very few people – at least that I’ve met – have the ability to blindly trust their intuitive guidance.

Most of us require some kind of validation. That’s where these experiences of NOT following your guidance are very helpful.

Now, hopefully, you can start to trust your intuition after a few “gentle” validations – like getting stuck in traffic for a few extra minutes.

Some of us “hard cases” – yes I was one of them! – may require a few stronger validations. I had many of these experiences – not all of them gentle! – during that period when the balance of power within me was shifting from analytical to intuitive!

Where are you on this journey of awakening to your intuition?

How often do you “hear” your inner guidance?

Do you trust your inner guidance consistently or do you question it?

Do you act on that inner guidance all the time, sometimes, only when it “makes sense” or never?

Do YOU have any intuitive “validation” stories you can share… you know times when you got very clear inner guidance to do one thing and went ahead and did another?

There are no right answers here. But it can be very helpful to take the pulse of your relationship with your intuition.

# 5 – And from good ole Abe….short and to the point….

Find something to feel good about and get out of the way, and allow the cells to receive what they’ve been asking for. That is the key to healing.–Abraham

Tut.com, Tama Kieves on undoing, Rumi, free health resources, reflection, and Abraham



# 1 – A good Note From the Universe (tut.com) to contemplate….

Tell me, when you think of taking consistent action in the general direction of your dreams, Zirah, do you imagine discipline, stamina, work, sacrifice, monotony, courage, and strategies, or are you thinking adventure, discovery, new friends, excitement at the crack of dawn, magic, surprises, fun, laughter, and, on occasion, the Macarena?

Cool! Me too, “HEY!”
The Universe

Your chosen perspective, Zirah, changes everything.


# 2 – This says the world is a reflection of who you are. To me, it would be more accurate to say the world is a reflection of your beliefs and who you believe yourself to be. Once you realize who and what you truly are your/the world is forever changed …..

# 3 – Some stimulation from Tama Kieves…..

The Year of Sleeping Dangerously

“Every act of creation begins with an act of destruction.” Pablo Piccasso

Well, you are getting results already.

Two minutes after you make your grand entrance into a bold new life, don’t be surprised if passion and anticipation give way to a divine sludge. It’s like the second you fly the coop, you land in this vat of emotional pea soup. Now home and alone, litheness slows to listlessness, a maddening drop in energy. Should this happen to you, know that you are not crazy or alone. You have just entered the transition zone. Congratulations. Collapse is progress.

After I walked out of my high-paced, breathless career, I functioned at what seemed to be two notches above the living dead line. I waited tables, bought groceries and fed my cat. But I slept for what seemed to be unnatural numbers of hours. My mind revved up like an eager sports car engine racing with the need to create a new and improved life. But I found my physical self dragging around the apartment in slow motion in my underwear in the middle of the day and then taking naps to recuperate. I felt like a beached whale hungering for the sea. I ate bagels and cream cheese and leftovers and lunchmeats instead. Guilt took finky little notes about my attraction to the refrigerator and read them over in my head.

It didn’t take long before I found myself haunted by rattling questions and rude images of wasting away in oblivion while the rest of the world drank lattes to go. Would I just exist in limbo now? Was gazing at my walls for hours “following my bliss”? Just how much could I eat anyway? And how would I pursue “the hero’s journey,” if it took me three hours to get up and brush my teeth? Oh, this is great, I thought, I’ve wrecked a Rolls Royce career so that I could grow as wide as a Buddha and contemplate the daisies on my quilt.

Read the rest of her post here.


# 4 – Beautiful image, thought-provoking words…..

“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” -Rumi


# 5 – Check out some of my latest posts at Self-help Help….several free resources available, innovative skin care products….






# 6 – This might be something to keep in mind when you are in that undoing state Tama Kieve’s was talking about in Tip # 3 ….

The best way to accomplish an improved environment is to focus upon the best things about where you currently are until you flood your own vibrational patterns of thought with appreciation, and in that changed vibration, you can then allow the new-and-improved conditions and circumstances to come into your experience.

Look for good things about where you are, and in your state of appreciation, you lift all self-imposed limitations (and all limitations are self-imposed) and you free yourself for the receiving of wonderful things.-–Abraham

# 6 – And from Guy Finley…..

Persist with your wish to be free; work to see all that you can about yourself, and then quietly watch what happens. Whatever appears before your inner eyes does so as part of what you need to see in order to realize that freedom for which you have asked. Never forget this truth… and your spiritual progress will be steady. ∼ Guy Finley
