Happiness, upset, expectations, good intentions, Inner Riches event and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – 

 

# 2 – Short and to the point from Dr. Sue Morter….

Upset Lately?

What are you trying to control?

Every time we are upset, there is something that we are attempting to control, and chances are pretty good that it isn’t working out so well for us. Never does. Not in the long run. What would happen if you just let go of the outcome?

 

# 3 – HA! This one fits pretty well with Tip # 2……

Did you ever think that something is labeled a “failure” only because it doesn’t match the expectation of what was wanted/”supposed” to happen?

 

# 4 – An interesting article about the power of consciousness and intention…..

http://www.bodymindsoulspirit.com/buddhist-monks-blessed-tea-with-good-intention-heres-what-happened/#

 

# 5 – These two events sound great and both are free!…..

The first is a 9-day Inner Riches Meditation Experience by spiritual explorer and Inc. 500 entrepreneur Amish Shah and his wife, certified yoga instructor Dr. Puja Shah.

Amish and Puja have spent two decades studying mind science, ancient consciousness-expanding practices, and dormant human abilities. And they’ve applied their findings by helping over 70,000 people through Project:Yourself – a global human potential movement.

This couple is a world-class authority on the subject of holistic success. And in this acclaimed meditation experience, they fuse science and spirit in a fascinating way to help you overcome your inner blocks. Over 9 days, you’ll get one immersive guided meditation session per day – and one mind-body-spirit tool or exercise you can use for an instant boost of perspective, creativity and intuition.

The experience begins Friday May 22nd (today!) and is Amish and Puja’s gift to you. It takes just a few minutes a day to do – and will impact your inner and outer reality.

You can find out more and sign up here.

This second event has already started, but replays are available for 72 hrs, so you still may be able to catch some of it…..

Mother Nature, perception, planning, eating organic, Louis CK, and get happy


PICK OF THE DAY:

No one wows me like Mother Nature!

If you like this, go here for more.

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Love this image and message….

 

# 2 – In a seemingly 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.”

 

# 3 – Think it’s not worth it to eat organic? Check out my latest posts at Self-help Health to make you rethink things, plus get a variety of a self-help health tips…..

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/tips-tips-more-tips-round-two/

 

# 4- Oh, you gotta hand it to Louis CK for being able to touch on very deep matters in a funny, insightful, entertaining way (warning: contains some “strong” language)…..

 

# 5 – And I may have shared this one before, but it’s worth repeating….

Everything that I think that I need to do is all only in order to propel me to some place that when I get there, I think I will be happier. So, everything that I am doing, no matter what it is, all of my lists of rights and wrongs… are all about me getting to a manifestation that I believe I will then be happier… So, why don’t I take a short cut and just go get happy? –Abraham

Wisdom, self-image, just ducky, gold fish, self-love event, and Abe


 

PICK OF THE DAY:

Love this quote….

“Wisdom demands a new orientation of science and technology towards the organic, the gentle, the non-violent, the elegant and beautiful.”∼E.F.Schumacher, author of Small is Beautiful

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Is this your experience?

 

 

# 2 – Another tip with an animal theme,… this time a delightful story of “strange bedfellows” becoming one big happy family. A good reminder for us humans….

 

# 3 – A good tie-in with Tip # 1 from Brian Johnson’s The Optimizer….

GOLD FISH, BONZAI TREES & YOU

We have all been hypnotized into thinking that we are smaller than we are. Just as an undersized flowerpot keeps a mighty tree root-bound or a little fishbowl keeps goldfish tiny, we have adapted, adjusted, and accommodated to a Lilliputian life. But place the same tree in an open field or the fish in a lake, and they will grow to hundreds of times their size. Unlike the tree or goldfish, you are not dependent on someone else to move you. You have the power to move yourself. You can step into a broader domain and grow to your full potential.

~ Alan Cohen from Why Your Life Sucks

Did you know that goldfish are kept tiny because of their little bowl?! And that if we let them swim in a natural size lake they’d grow to 100+ times that little size?!

THAT’S WACKY!

And same with bonzai trees, eh? Restrict the roots by putting it in a tiny pot and you’ll get a tiny tree. Put that same tree in a forest and let its roots stretch out and voila! We’ve got a ginormous tree.

SAME THING WITH OUR LIVES.

If we buy into the hypnosis of our limited potential, we’ll be stunted little beings. If, however, we can plant ourselves in the spaciousness of our vast potential, watch out!! :)

 

# 4 – This tip is also a good tie-in with #1 and # 3 because self-image is powerfully influenced by your degree of self-love, so it’s great that The Shift Network is offering a free webinar by an expert on the topic…..

Alanis Morissette, Lindsey Wagner, Neale Donald Walsch and John Grey have all praised and recommend her “Inner Bonding” work.  Who is she?  Margaret Paul, and we are excited to announce that Margaret is returning to The Shift Network for her next course in May!  

On Wednesday, May 20th at 5:30 pm Pacific, she will present a free call titled: From Judgment to Self-Love: How to End the Inner Struggle and Deeply Value Your Full Self.

This call can help listeners get to the root cause of much of the depression, anxiety, relationship issues – even addictions – that are manifestations of a severe epidemic in our culture: lack of self-love.

 

You can find out more and sign-up here.

 

# 5 – Ah, it’s the ole BEing vs doing thing…..

Take the time to line up the Energy first, and action becomes inconsequential. If you don’t take the time to line up the Energy, if you don’t find the feeling place of what you’re looking for, not enough action in the world will make any difference. ∼Abraham

Small change, Mother Nature, love, Unstoppable Energy event, and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – This article is focused on using EFT (the Emotional Freedom Technique), but it presents a story about how making small changes can bring huge benefits. (If you’re not familiar w/ EFT, you can find out more about it here.)

The 1% Solution: An Easy Way To Make Big Changes by Andy Hunt

If you are suffering from stress, anxiety, frustrations and limitations you probably want that to change, to change quickly and to change completely. The more intense the distress the more urgent the need to change feels. So it’s not surprising that lots of advertising in the self-development/self-help world claims to “halve your stress”, “double your happiness”, “clear your limitations” within hours or days, if you just buy their product or services. But, what if you could easily make those kinds of changes by slowing down and doing less? It may seem unlikely, but making tiny changes over time can make huge differences in your life.

The aggregation of marginal gains

In 2010 Dave Brailsford set himself the hard task of helping the British cycling team win the Tour de France cycle race, something that had never been done before…..

# 2 – It’s hard to outdo Mother Nature…and a perfectly timed shot….

# 3 – Love this one from Dr. Sue Morter….and so timely as the area where I live is “greening” to beat the band right now due to Spring being in full force….

50 Shades of Green

Life is begging for your Love.

It is “always, only, ever” interested in you finding your way to Love.

Variations of every sort, degrees of intensity, and in every hue – Love.

Its invitation overlays every circumstance as abundantly as the shades of green that cover our very planet.

In the barren spaces where it appears that Love is not, look deeper, lean in.

Breathe into the place where Love would be least expected and bring the surprise of Love in your favorite shade. Lead with Love.

When you do, the Divine space of the heart blossoms grey into green…

50 shades of Green.  :-)

 

# 4 – This is a great example of Tip # 3 and a truly heart-warming story…..

# 5 – Want unstoppable energy? Then check out my latest Self-help Health post for an upcoming free webinar on the subject put on by The Chopra  Center….

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2015/05/02/free-unstoppable-energy-event-and-orawellness-does-a-floss-off/

 

# 6 – And Abe’s take on things…..

What anyone else has or does not have has nothing to do with you. The only thing that affects your experience is the way you utilize the Non-Physical Energy with your thought. Your abundance or lack of it in your experience has nothing to do with what anybody else is doing or having. It has only to do with your perspective. It has only to do with your offering of thought. If you want your fortunes to shift, you have to begin telling a different story. —Abraham

Your heart, soul = joy, Rupi Kaur, The Master Cleanse, essential oils summit, puppy pics, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – The heart knows what the head doesn’t….

 

# 2 – A great “little” poem by Rupi Kaur featured in a recent post of L to the Aura….

https://lauraecpaul.wordpress.com/2015/04/24/spring-2015-poetic-inspiration/

 

# 3 – This fits nicely with Tip # 1, don’t you think? :-)

 

# 4 – And on the topic of health and well-being, check out this recent (and popular) post at Self-help Health about the Master Cleanse…

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2015/04/19/the-master-cleanse-for-detoxing-weight-loss-and-more/

 

And if you’re interested in learning more about essential oils and their many uses and benefits, there’s a whole summit coming up on the topic. I really think in the near future more and more people are going to be stocking their medicine cabinets with essential oils rather than prescription and OTC drugs. Find out why….

# 5 – For you animal lovers out there, some of the cutest puppy pics ever that are sure to make you smile…

http://www.boredpanda.com/beautiful-bulldog-puppies/

 

# 6 – And Abe on money…..

Anything you are giving your attention to is an invitation to the essence of it. Saying, I want money, but it will not come, is the same as saying, “Come to me, absence of money, which I do not want.”

When you are thinking of money in the way that will make it come to you, you always feel good. When you are thinking of money in the way that keeps it from coming to you, you always feel bad. That is how you know the difference.–Abraham

Beautiful, Mother Nature, spiritual nourishment, heroes, and making the leap


 

PICK OF THE DAY:

Love this! The video in this post is very thought-provoking and insight-producing….and it brought tears to my eyes because it shows we are all innately beautiful spirits, regardless of what labels/judgments are placed on us by ourselves or others….

https://lauraecpaul.wordpress.com/2015/04/07/choosing-beautiful/

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – And speaking of beauty, here’s a good one from Mother Nature that includes a plant, amphibian and insect all in one spot/shot. Delightful!

Sociedad Argentina de Horticultura

 

# 2 – An excerpt from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter….

What nourishes you emotionally and spiritually?

I’m not talking about what entertains you or flatters you or takes your
mind off your problems.

I’m referring to the influences that make you stronger and the people who
see you for who you really are and the situations that teach you life-long
lessons.

I mean the beauty that replenishes your psyche and the symbols that
consistently restore your balance and the memories that keep feeding
your ability to rise to each new challenge.

I invite you to take inventory of these precious assets. And then make a
special point of nurturing them back.

 

# 3 – A pep talk from Kid President to evoke the hero in all of us….

 

 

# 4 – And The Shift Network is sponsoring another free event….

Now for the first time, New York Times bestselling author Gay Hendricks will personally share the key principles from his book The Big Leap during a free virtual event, Wednesday, April 22, at 5:30 pm Pacific, called: The Big Leap from Excellence to Genius: How to Transform 4 Fears that Reinforce Your Upper Limit on Life. There will also be an “encore replay” on Saturday, April 25 at 10:00 am, too (one of the most popular times for attendance).
 
In this session, Gay will help you begin to recognize your own “upper limit” so that you can begin to reprogram yourself and shift into living more and more of your life from your zone of genius. During this complimentary event, you’ll:

  • Come to understand how and why you have a fear of outshining other people (hint: It’s a natural part of our social psychology).
  • Learn how to work with the fear that if you enter your zone of genius, you’ll be disloyal and abandon important people in your life.
  • Surface and transform the belief that there is something fundamentally wrong about you that is a barrier to living from your genius.
  • Learn how to raise your “upper limit” on what you believe you are capable of creating or achieving, especially by pursuing your authentic zone of genius.

Are you ready to take the “Big Leap” to shift your fears and open to living your most outrageously authentic (and wildly successful) life? You can learn more and sign up here.

 

Enjoy!

Happiness


 

This is so wonderful I hated to “dilute” it with anything else on the page……

 

(photo by Shell Fischer)

“Our habit is to think there is a particular cause for our happiness—the new green in early spring, the sound of a child’s laugh, or the sensations of playing in the ocean waves. But what actually allows us to be happy is the background space of silent, allowing presence. Each time we meet aliveness with presence, presence intensifies, and awareness senses itself. The living green awakens us to this inner space of presence, the laugh to presence, the sparkle and splash to presence . We are inhabiting our wholeness and are happy being who we are.” ~ True Refuge

 

Enjoy and Happy Friday everyone!
