Cosmic Soul, Beauty & Truth, the homeless & their pets, two free events, new moon, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1-  A  short video called Cosmic Soul that helps put everything into an expanded perspective…

 

# 2 –  Entertaining, thought-provoking excerpts from Rob Brezsny’s Beauty & Truth Lab….

DEAR BEAUTY AND TRUTH LAB: I’ve wrestled all my life with fear. But
lately it’s been even worse than usual. My personal demons seem to be
winning, or at least getting the better of the fight. I think it’s related to
the fact that when I caught wind of the idea of pronoia, I started working
hard to lose all my illusions. Now I’m thinking maybe that was a mistake.
Perhaps I needed my illusions to keep the demons at bay? – Crybaby

DEAR CRYBABY: Hang on. This is the toughest part of your struggle. It
may seem that the illusions you dissolved were the main barriers
safeguarding you from your demons. But what’s more likely is that those
illusions were food for your demons. Very soon now the demons will have
devoured the last of their fuel and will start to starve. If they don’t die
off, they will at least fly away in search of other nourishment.

+     +     +     +     +     +     +

DEAR BEAUTY AND TRUTH LAB: Two months ago I met the first person
with whom I am completely psychic. We fell deeply in love, of course. But
it turned out that neither of us was ready or able to fulfill the potential of
our connection because we are nowhere near as profoundly in love with
ourselves as we are with each other. The good news is that through my
love for him, I have intensified my desire to learn to love myself. The bad
news is that we can’t really be together as fate intended until we upgrade
our self-love. Can you offer any consolation? – Lucky Yet Unlucky in Love

Dear Lucky: We appreciate your sage caution, but also offer this
alternative view from actress Tallulah Bankhead: “If I had to live my life
again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.”

# 3 – Wow, I hope you take the time to watch this. Heart-warming, inspiring, sad and happy…

# 4 – Two free upcoming events from The Shift Network….

In our fast-paced world it’s rare to connect deeply with spirit and sustain that connection in daily life, which is why Shift Network would like to introduce you to Joey Klein–a young and dynamic teacher who combines ancient spiritual practices with cutting-edge Western science to show us how to live a life where every expression is of spirit. 

On July 30th, Joey will offer a free tele-seminar titled Navigating Your Inner Matrix: 3 Keys to Harness Your Spiritual Power & Optimize Your Experience of Life.”

On Joey’s call you will:

  • Gain an understanding of what your inner matrix is and how it defines your current experience of life.
  • Learn tools to break free of limiting mental, emotional and physical patterns.
  • Understand how to step into deeper connection with others.
  • Begin to experience daily life as an expression of your soul’s essence.

Reserve your free seat here.

Next, a reminder that you’re invited to The Future of YogaEvolving Your Practice, Changing Our World” August 4th-6th.  This event has a powerful intention to advance a new and authentically integrated approach to yoga; one that does not segment our practice into a corner of our lives, but begins to enliven all aspects of our lives with radiance. 

The event features some of the wisest, most innovative, and boldest teachers of our day, including Judith Lasiter, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Richard Miller and Deva Premal.

You can sign up for free here.

# 5 –  Astrograph.com’s take on the current new moon phase and other cosmic happenings….

The New Moon of Saturday, July 26th, takes us on a very special ride. The Sun and Moon are conjunct positive and optimistic Jupiter, and yet also inconjunct nebulous Neptune, indicating that in spite of an unbridled sense of optimism that can move mountains, things might not be entirely what they appear. With a prominent Saturn-Uranus aspect also triggered by the event of this lunation, there is always looming as well the downside to simple goal orientation, consisting of unexpected limitations that could prevent unadulterated success. Mercury is finally past its retrograde shadow, moving through the last third of the feeling-toned sign of Cancer, with Venus nearby, provoking a thoughtful view of life and love that is emotionally depth-oriented as well as full of intellectual awareness. This is especially so because Venus is almost exactly opposite to Pluto in the timing of Saturday afternoon’s New Moon. Our ongoing transformation takes on a relationship orientation as we move through these summer months and head into further profound change in the autumn of the year…

# 6 – Hmmmm, definitely food for thought (pun intended :-))…..

Many tell us that they are so busy making their money that they do not have time to enjoy it . . . for when you rely on your action to create, often you are too tired to enjoy your creation. Once you not only understand the power of your thought, but you deliberately direct this powerful tool in the direction of things that you desire, then you will discover that the action part of your life is the way you enjoy what you have created through your thought.—Abraham

Victim vs creator, being “spiritual,” going box-less, Active Dreamtime, last quarter moon, and Abraham


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – From Brian Johnson’s Philosopher’s Notes…..

Victim vs. Creator

  The difference between Optimism and Pessimism is really quite simple. It’s all about our orientation to the world.In any given moment we either choose (yes, it’s a CHOICE) an empowering perspective or a disempowering one.
We choose to be Victims or we choose to be Creators. The trick is to practice noticing when we’re slipping into the Victim perspective.So how do we catch ourselves?If you’re complaining, criticizing, blaming, gossiping and comparing, you can be pretty sure you’re hanging out in Victimland—the unhappiest place on Earth.Find the exit by asking yourself a simple question: “What do I want?
Whereas the Victim constantly focuses on all the things that’re wrong in their lives (and with everyone else around them—which is really just a reflection of all their inner angst), the Creator gets clear on what he/she wants.So, what do you want?

Brian Johnson, Chief Philosopher
Check out the wise little fable called The Power of TED* by David Emerald for more goodness on this!

P.S. Check out the mini-video for this chapter here!

 

# 2 – From Sounds True on Facebook….

 

THE most “spiritual” thing any of us can do is to see with eyes of wholeness, and act with integrity and kindness. Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

# 3 – Another free event from The Shift Network….

Being able to understand and access our higher consciousness through dreams is a hot topic, and we are excited to announce that Robert Moss will be joining the faculty at The Shift Network with an exclusive course on dreams. 

Robert Moss is one of the world’s leading dream-work experts.  He’s the author of 10 books, several bestsellers, on the deeper dimensions of how dreaming can enhance and transform the quality of our lives.  He’s also the creator of Active Dreaming, which synthesizes ancient shamanic practices with modern dream science and spiritual disciplines from around the world.

On July 23rd, Robert will reveal how to turn passive sleeping into active dreaming on a free tele-seminar titled The Power of Active Dreaming: How to Use Dreamtime for Healing & Transformation.”

During this event you’ll learn:

  • How you can use Active Dreaming to perceive your future more accurately and receive valuable guidance for decision-making
  • How you can open up your dreams to a direct connection with guides, giving you access to deeper spiritual awareness
  • How you can re-enter dreamscapes and continue the journey to gain access to wisdom and healing
  • A shamanic perspective on how you can use dreams as a form of medicine to illuminate what is going on in your body or life

Sign up here

PS: More than anything, Robert Moss can help you open your understanding of how to engage dreaming as a real spiritual practice in a way that connects you with a more fascinating and multi-dimensional truth of who you are. When you register for this tele-seminar, you’ll also be sent a downloadable replay of the call.

 

# 4 – Yes!

 

# 5 – An astrological update from astrograph.com….

Friday evening’s Last Quarter Moon is quite interesting, being by phase a time of reassessment and new direction, and signaling as it does a change of attitude from the recent Mercury Retrograde, as the messenger planet regains its speedy ways and moves further into the sign of Cancer, finally escaping the last dregs of its retrograde shadow. The stodgy and limiting action of Saturn is stronger now as well, because as Saturn slows to a standstill, getting ready to station to normal direct motion on Sunday, the 20th, it is much more powerful. Meanwhile trickster Uranus in close aspect to Saturn is also preparing to station just one day after Saturn does, in this case changing from forward to retrograde motion. The main thing to consider here is that they will each be practically stationary in the sky all weekend long, and in close inconjunct aspect to each other. It is therefore not so good to count on getting anything done in terms of outer achievement, although it is a wonderful time for *new visioning and for self-study.

# 6 – And some stimulation from Abraham….

Everything is valid and everything is truthful, because Law of Attraction lets everything be. The question is not whether it’s right or wrong, whether their approach is right or wrong, or whether my approach is right or wrong. The question is: Does their approach feel good to me? And if it doesn’t, then I choose a different approach.—Abraham

TIPS FOR TODAY:

#1 – An excerpt from a presentation by Dr. Sue Morter where she talks about joy, time, unconditional love, and staying centered in your true self….

http://www.drsuemorter.com/online-classes/the-short-answer/sa-broadcast/?inf_contact_key=0f4e840c5b0b4f5ecf66b37fcda2bf491be2c82a083e9b7dd9db448e4397eb0e

 

# 2- Great one!

 

# 3 – A really  potent full moon this month….with lots of other astrological aspects going on….

Here’s an excerpt from astrograph.com’s article on the current cosmic happenings….

Saturday’s Full Moon reminds us that we are powerful humans, each on an important and uniquely individual soul quest that, while deriving from each one of us, yet provides the solution to the situation of the social setting in which we find ourselves. The Moon in the social sign of Capricorn squares individualistic Mars, opposite Uranus in Aries, the sign that he rules. The Cancer Sun squares both of these points and looks on, in a nurturing way, at all the running around that we do in attempt to make everything work out. This is an extremely powerful configuration due to the current outer planet alignments, with chimes made as well to Pluto in Capricorn and in wide square to Uranus, which in turn is being strongly aspected by Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn. This complex interlocking arrangement in the heavens corresponds to the intense amalgamation of energies that we are currently dealing with down here in Earth school, where wisdom comes slowly, and steadily, as we explore our overt choices and our hidden motivations…

And here’s an entertaining, informative, insightful take on the Capricorn moon by Jessica Shepherd at mooncircles.com that start out….

Before the Uranus-Pluto square began making matters of life direction (and pretty much everything) tougher to unravel, it was much easier for me to offer Joseph Campbell’s career advice to those clients who were miserable in their professions. “Follow your bliss” I’d say, and point to the major career indicators in the chart: Sun (creative ego), the MidHeaven sign and Tenth House Planets (mission, purpose; what you are here to contribute to the world), Venus (joy). But in recent years it’s struck me that some people cannot or do not know how to connect their own happiness. Happiness belongs to the Moon.

# 4 – In the mood for free stuff?

Also, there’s plenty of free items available on the Contact/Request page.

 

# 5 – And I recently got this clever little Note From the Universe (tut.com) in my inbox…..

Oh sure, Zirah, you can knock and it will be opened. Seek and it will be found. Ask and it will be answered. But you can also just say “thanks” in advance.

And believing, you’ll see that that which you stood in need of was there all along.

What a system, huh?
The Universe

p.s. We call it built-in redundancy, Zirah, Zirah.

Before/after, freedom, peace, magic, health tips, and Abraham


PICK FOR TODAY:

These will really touch your heart, especially if you are an animal lover….

http://www.boredpanda.com/before-after-animals/

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1- In honor of the Fourth of July….

 

# 2 – Love this graphic (from a FB post by Narnia Studios) and text….

“The calm within the storm is where peace lives and breathes. It is not within perfect circumstances or a charmed life… it is not conditional. Peace is a sacred space within, it is the temple of our internal landscape. We are free to visit it, whenever we seek sanctuary. Underneath the chaos of everyday living, peace is patiently awaiting our discovery….” ~ Jaeda DeWalt

# 4 – 

 

# 5 – And another good one from Abraham….

The emotion you feel is always about the vibrational variance between where you want to be and where you are. If you’re out of balance, there are only two ways to bring yourself into alignment: Either raise your expectation to match your desire—or lower your desire to match your expectation.—Abraham

And speaking of Abraham, here’s a link to a lengthy presentation by Esther Hicks that a friend sent me. I hope to check it out over this long weekend…

Nature, Nature and MORE Nature, plus a little Abe


PICK OF THE DAY:

Wow, watching and listening to this was like a moving meditation…..

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Love it! 

I came across this right (shared on FB by Sandra Maa) after talking to my best friend about the sadness she was feeling about her cat going M. I. A. She said this looks like an orchid angel bird. Yes! Mother Nature is awesome!

Your sadness is intelligent, alive, and full of information; it has something within it that joy could never offer.
Your longing contains a frequency of wisdom, and serves as a bridge between you and the unseen world.
Your burning and your confusion are secret ways that love is polishing you.–Matt Licata

(FYI, if you’d like to see more pics of orchids that look tigers, aliens, dancers and a bunch of other amazing things, go here: http://pulptastic.com/16-flowers-that-look-like-something-else/)

 

# 2 – Whimsical and beautiful. Nature at Its best…..From Our Beautiful World & Universe on FB

 

# 3 – Mother Nature never ceases to amaze….

 

# 4 – Ahhh, nothing like a good motherly lick…..

 

# 5 – OMG, Plitvice Lakes Nationa Park, Croatia….

 

# 6 – This should get your morning off with a smile :-)

 

# 7 – And a good one to end on.  Happy Saturday everyone!

Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before yours eyes, but it is not by magic. It is by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate alignment with those Laws.

—Abraham

Disappointment, acts of kindness, just bloom, what’s true, and Abraham


 TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – This is a good one to remember….

 

# 2 – I can’t remember if I’ve shared this before…..a sweet little video/commercial about small acts of kindness and the impact they have. Worth a watch, even if you’ve seen it before. :-)

 

 

 

# 3 – Love this graphic and text…..

 

# 4 – A key “lesson” from Guy Finley….

“Psychologically speaking, what is true requires no protection, and never becomes negative when challenged. On the other hand, what is false almost never stops trying to protect itself, which it does by finding fault with whatever or whoever challenges the false image behind which it always hides.”

For a free Welcome Kit from Guy Finley’s Life of Learning Foundation, go to: http://www.guyfinley.com/Welcome/36/CD1414/0

 

# 5 – And a good one to remember from Abraham….

There is no right or wrong way to tell your improved story. It can be about your past, present, or future experiences. The only criterion that is important is that you be conscious of your intent to tell a better-feeling, improved version of your story. Telling many good-feeling short stories throughout your day will change your point of attraction. Just remember that the story you tell is the basis of your life. So tell it the way you want it to be.—Abraham

Question, slow down, smile, Healing With the Masters & Amma, health posts, and Abraham


 TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Start the day off with this question?

 

# 2 – A message from Guy Finley about slowing down and stepping out of anxious thoughts and feelings….

Key Lesson: The more you identify with some imagined place — or time — where you will at last be able to slow down and rest, the faster you rush to get there.

Stepping Out of Anxious Thoughts and Feelings

There is no worry so great, no anxious rush for resolution so strong, that these terrible twins cannot be taken up, reduced, and returned to their basic nothingness by that mind brought back into its native quietude. Learning to be still is not just the remedy for our self-wrecking states, but proves to be their permanent cure.


If anxious thoughts and feelings had any power to help us reach some place in life where, finally, we’d be released from the pain of always feeling rushed… don’t you think we’d have reached there by now!


If we want to understand why we feel troubled as we do, we need only “tune-in” to the parts of ourselves we’re listening to. All the “sounds” of life are revelatory, but none are perfunctory; so, if we keep hearing discordant thoughts and feelings within us — whose vibrations disturb us — it isn’t because life sings this song. Our unrest continues only because of an unseen interior choice, and to see the truth of this is to realize one of the great keys to the Kingdom of Heaven: as goes our attention, so comes our experience.

This article is excerpted from 365 Days to Let Go.

# 3 – Don’t forget!

 

# 4 – A new Healing With the Masters series is about to begin and it’s free (as usual!)….

You have the chance to join what is now being called “Healing With The Masters Season 13.2” as a live, interactive set of 23 healers… true masters… here to work with you and move you to a new state of being, power and possibility. It is SO live, that Jennifer is opening up the lines (THAT’S NEW) for you to interact directly with the speakers and potentially receive one-on-one session work.

THIS IS YOUR CHANCE to find out what all the fuss has been about AND experience this season as a LIVE, interactive event. Imagine interacting with Don Miguel Ruiz, Wayne Dyer, Jo Dunning, Rikka Zimmerman and recent New York Times Bestselling authors, Pam Grout (E2), Dr. Fab Mancini (The Power of Self-Healing) and Dr. Lissa Rankin (Mind Over Medicine). Arianna Huffington founder of The Huffington Post is also joining Jennifer.

AND a powerful being of renowned healing has agreed to ALSO be a speaker on Healing With The Masters: Amma! Mata Amritanandamayi, better known simply as Amma ["Mother"], is a Hindu spiritual leader and guru, who is revered as a saint by her followers. She is referred to as “the hugging saint.”

Amma, drawing more people than the Dalai Lama, rarely does interviews, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from, and more importantly, feel the energy from this remarkable woman.

You can register for the series here.

# 6 – And from Abraham….

Every time you praise something, every time you appreciate something, every time you feel good about something, you are telling the Universe, “More of this, please. More of this, please.” You need never again make another verbal statement of this intent, and if you were allowing your cork to float — all good things would flow to you.—Abraham
