Yes, whale tale, perfect day, be kind, and Abe on resistance


TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Advice from Dr. Sue Morter…

“Yes” is the answer to every Well-Oriented question.

Find yourself asking questions to which the answer is “Yes.” It places you in the conscious realm of Possibility. It allows for intention to birth. And it just feels good!

 

# 2 – A whale of a tale….

 

 

# 3 – Something from Vishen Lakhiani of Mind Valley Academy I thought might be of interest to some of you…..

Did you know we all live our lives with two separate identities?

The first one is your current identity — this is who you are, right now. 

The other is something called your Core Identity.

This identity holds your greatest desires, hopes, and dreams. It’s all about the deep, meaningful experiences you really want out of life.

It’s who you are meant to be. I learned about this concept from a remarkable speech I saw in 2008 from a speaker called Frank Kern. This exercise really helped the audience create a new vision for what they wanted their lives to look like. It helps you avoid Brules and Means Goals by getting you to think about something really simple…

Your Perfect Day.

Kern suggested that we all ask ourselves the following question:

If there were no limitations or consequences, what would your perfect, average day look like?

Limitations means you don’t have to worry about money, health, geography, nor limiting people.

Consequences means it has to be something safe, not anything that will get you in trouble (or arrested…)

Average means you could do it everyday and not get killed (this means your perfect day would not include climbing Mount Everest, for example.)

So how do you create that new life?

FIRST mentally create that perfect day. That perfect day will help you understand yourself and find your core identity.

Discovering Your Perfect Day

1 Where would you live?

2 What would your house look like?

3 What time would you wake up?

4 What would you do in the morning?

5 What would you have for breakfast?

6 What does the mundane stuff look like? (e.g. taking kids to school)

7 What would you do in the first half of your day?

8 What would you eat for lunch?

9 Who would you eat with?

10 What would your friends be like?

11 What would you do for personal fulfillment?

12 What purpose would you strive for?

13 What would your business be?

14 What would you actually do for work?

15 What are your clients like?

16 What are your relationships like? What do you like about each other?

17 What would you do for family time?

18 What is the relationship with your kids like? What do you appreciate about each other?

19 What would you have for dinner? Where would you eat?

20 What would you talk about over dinner?

21 What would you do at night?

22 Who would you do it with?

23 Where would you do it?

24 What would your thoughts be as you go to sleep?

These questions are all based on desired experiences, not goals or things. Remember that our experiences help shape our identity.

That is step one. Crafting your perfect day. Your perfect day will help you identify who you really are, and what your core identity is.

Go into as much detail as possible. It’s these experiences that ultimately mould your core identity.

When you have a clear picture of who you are — this is your core identity.

And here’s the thing, when you start upgrading your beliefs and habits, that’s when you start moving in the direction of your core identity. You’ll start experiencing massive growth and improvements in many areas of your life.

But it all starts with your beliefs and habits

 

# 4 – Right on!

 

# 5 – Resistance according to Abraham…..

Resistance is about believing that you are vulnerable or susceptible to something not wanted and holding a stance of protection — which only holds you in a place of not letting in the Well-being that would be there otherwise. There is nothing big enough to protect you from unwanted things, and there are no unwanted things big enough to get into your experience.–Abraham

Happiness x 2, filling in the blanks, perspective, free health resources, and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Happiness….it’s all about inner alignment….

 

# 2 – And speaking of happiness, here’s an excerpt from a Philosopher’s Notes newsletter at en*theos…..

HOW ABOUT A 25% BOOST TO YOUR HAPPINESS?

Here’s the first study on gratitude Emmons conducted with his team: Researchers split participants into three groups. Every week the participants kept a journal where they described, in a single sentence, five things they were either grateful for (the gratitude condition) or displeased about (the hassles condition). The neutral group simply described five events that happened (the events condition).

What did the first study reveal? At the end of the ten weeks, we examined differences between the three groups on all of the well-being outcomes that we measured at the outset of the study. Participants in the gratitude condition felt better about their lives as a whole and were more optimistic about the future than participants in either of the other control conditions. To put it into numbers, according to the scale we used to calculate well-being, they were a full 25 percent happier than other participants.”
~ Robert A. Emmons from Thanks!

 

# 3 – A good reminder from Dr. Sue Morter….

“Go ahead and fill in the blanks when you don’t know the whole story. But beware that it reveals your most subtle intentions!

When we write the “rest of the story,” filling in the blanks where we don’t know the details, the Universe has no choice but to show us what we are secretly intending to prove as true for us… actually validating our insecurities, illusions, and false beliefs of insufficiency.

Catch yourself filling in the blanks with details of Infinite Possibility, and the Universe will deliver in kind! (Never misses a beat.)”

 

# 4 – Another “story-oriented” tip….

 

# 5 – Check out my current post at Self-help Health for free alternative health resources, including a detox tips webinar, 2-day ScalarWave Healing Revolution workshop and 3 free e-books! Yea!

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2015/07/20/free-resources-scalarwave-healing-revolution-detox-tips-webinar-and-two-e-books/

 

# 6 – It’s the ole being fascinated with what you DON’T want, instead of what you DO….

The one who fears something the most is the one who has it most activated in their vibration. And so, it is logical that they would experience it.–Abraham

# 5 – And to end on….here’s to everyone being truly successful/really joyful!

“You can say things like, “As I look at successful people, and by that I mean rich people, yes, and I mean happy people, and sometimes they’re rich and happy.” But when I’m talking about the successful ones, what I really mean is the really happy people. People that are really joyful, that want to get up every day, that are eager to get into their day. Almost without exception, they had a pretty rough beginning, which turned them into a powerful rebel initially. And then they found a way to relax into their natural birthright of Well-being.”-Abraham

Control, change, trigger, exuberance, being in the flow, and Abe on limits


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – In a seeming convoluted way I “just happened” to come across this excerpt from ACIM that reminds me of living in the now and leading w/ my heart/inner guidance and not my head…..

“The mind engaged in planning for itself is occupied in setting up
control of future happenings. It does not think that it will be provided
for, unless it makes its own provisions. Time becomes a future
emphasis, to be controlled by learning and experience obtained
from past events and previous beliefs. It overlooks the present, for
it rests on the idea the past has taught enough to let the mind direct
its future course.

The mind that plans is thus refusing to allow for change. What it has
learned before becomes the basis for its future goals. Its past
experience directs its choice of what will happen. And it does not see
that here and now is everything it needs to guarantee a future quite
unlike the past, without a continuity of any old ideas and sick beliefs.
Anticipation plays no part at all, for present confidence directs the way.”

∼A Course In Miracles

 

# 2 – More on allowing change and being in the flow from Dr. Sue Morter….

The ONLY Constant is Change 
Yep, you got it. The entire universe is based upon a Law of Flow – a reality that is ever evolving and unfolding. Attempting to stop the force behind Creation itself is a rather, shall we say “dicey” thing to try, don’t you think? Wouldn’t it be nice to just let the Flow flow?
Save some energy, use your creative essence in a more productive way, get with the Flow, and get with the “Go!”You have to admit that once you accept the fact that you will be even more amazing one minute from now than you already are, the whole idea gets a little sexier, doesn’t it?!

 

# 3 – I think I actually shared this some time ago, but recently came across it again on FB and just love it! Need to look at this each morning to set the tone for my day.

 

# 4 – Ah yes, the question keeps the flow going and the door open to all sorts of possibilities; thinking you have the answer shuts things down…..

“I find that a lot of people are more invested in position-taking than they
are in the inquiry. Generally speaking, I am in the inquiry. I live in the
question. People have so many positions, and usually the evidence is not
strong enough for them really to be so confident in those conclusions.
There are just a lot of things that are not certain.”

– Jerry Brown, quoted in “The Atlantic”

 

# 5 – A good reminder from Byron Katie….

 

# 6 – Wow, that last line is a “corker.”

When you are really in the flow with your Inner Being, ideas come easily—they are implemented easily. It’s fun while you are in the process of them, and it doesn’t matter how they unfold; and nothing can go wrong, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t get it done, it’s just fun to do it. Your Inner Being feels no limit. So, anything that feels like limits is something that you have self-imposed. ∼Abraham

# 6 – And some Abe to end on….

If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life. If there was nothing else that you ever came to understand other than just look for things to appreciate, it’s the only tool you would ever need to predominantly hook you up with who you really are. That’s all you’d need.

—Abraham

Mindfulness, a push, open mind, thinking cap/cat, 432 hz, and play/work


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – A nugget from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter….

“Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed,
recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are
ourselves.

“The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are
me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of
attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath.

“Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In
mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are
all sacred.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh, “The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the
Practice of Meditation”

 

# 2 – Sometimes we just need a push or be willing to give someone else a push….

http://www.flickspire.com/m/Rubbertree669/EvenEaglesNeedAPush/

 

# 3 – Ah yes, the question keeps the flow going and the door open to all sorts of possibilities; thinking you have the answer shuts things down…..

“I find that a lot of people are more invested in position-taking than they
are in the inquiry. Generally speaking, I am in the inquiry. I live in the
question. People have so many positions, and usually the evidence is not
strong enough for them really to be so confident in those conclusions.
There are just a lot of things that are not certain.”

– Jerry Brown, quoted in “The Atlantic”

 

# 4- HA! Yes, things are always clearer (and cuter) when I have my thinkin’ cap/cat on. :-)

 

# 5 – This reminds me of a Self-help Health post I did on solfeggio tones

http://howtoexitthematrix.com/2015/04/26/heres-why-you-should-convert-your-music-to-432-hz/

 

# 6 – Great image and text…..

“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” – Alan W. Watts
