# 6 – Advice from Abraham on attracting more abundance…

“You do not have to have money to attract money, but you cannot feel poor and attract money. The key is, you have to find ways of improving the way you feel from right where you stand before things can begin to change: By softening your attention to the things that are going wrong, and by beginning to tell stories that lean more in the direction of what you want instead of in the direction of what you have got, your vibration will shift; your point of attraction will shift—and you will get different results.”— Abraham

# 4 – An astrological update from astrograph.com about the Virgo full moon and other cosmic happenings…

With Monday’s Full Moon in Virgo we come to an important turning point in our journey toward greater self-knowledge and integration. This moment in the lunation cycle represents some sense of culmination in what we have been attempting in the two weeks since the New Moon of February 9th, and is accompanied by a Pisces line-up involving six planets, including the Sun. Although one of these, Venus, is not officially in Pisces until evening-time, she hovers on the very brink of entrance into the magical sign of Neptune‘s rulership. With Venus in the final degree of Aquarius, we are absorbing the lessons of detachment in relationship, the other side of the coin of merging and connecting. Venus coming into Pisces represents a different flavor of relating – we come into closer connection with spiritual purpose, and with the angel inside ourselves and in each other. This is indeed a special and a very mystical period of time. The Sun is in conjunction with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, with the Moon opposed, while Mercury completes its turn to retrograde motion in conjunction with Mars, also in Pisces, promoting inner work over outer activity.

The Full Moon also makes a T-square to Jupiter in Mercury‘s sign of Gemini, promoting an optimistic mental attitude, together with the spiritual energy for active contemplation, another chime with Pisces and Neptune.Neptune itself resides in early Pisces, near Chiron and the Sun. Mars in close conjunction with retrogradeMercury completes the sextuple of Piscean planetary energies. Then, too, since Mercury is beginning its five-week cycle of retrograde motion and the regaining of its lost zodiacal ground, returning to where it started on the weekend of February 23rd, there is a strongly meditative element expressed all through this last part of February and on into March and April. Mercury remains in Pisces until mid-April, stationing direct on March 17th and only escapes its retrograde shadow on April 6th.

Mercury was conjunct Chiron last February 10th, and then makes further exact hits on March 8th and March 29th. It could be that events that disturbed you somewhat in the early part of the month could return in the next to haunt you in an even more poignant and memorable manner. With Chiron so involved over this next monthly cycle, the realizations that come to you over this period are very likely to partake in an extended meditation on the essentially wounded nature that is an important part of us all. This fundamental component of our human condition is often overlooked or brushed under the rug of awareness. You do not want to look at painful subjects. It is vital for your healing however that you no longer avoid the issues that may have been buried away deep inside, but instead have the courage to reflect upon and more steadily gaze at whatever is subtly disconnected within your own dark places.

The Mercury Retrograde period, especially in Pisces, is a useful one. Although it is frequently given a bad rap in our goal-oriented society of doing and still more doing, this important stretch of time-out leads to meaningful deliberation and contemplation. You do well to recognize that taking space for yourself is actually permissible and even necessary. As you do so, you might reflect that along with the prettier aspects of your character, also the lonely and disconnected parts of yourself need looking after and being able to feel more welcome in the affectionate grasp of your understanding, and as well, of your heart’s embrace.

# 5 – And a great one from Abraham…

“Flawed Premises Can Attract True Unwanted Evidence… Flawed premises that you have picked up along your physical trail can fall by the wayside, one by one, and you can return to the understanding that is at the core of that which you are. (But in order to discover or understand a false or flawed premise, you have to stand back far enough and reconnect with who-you-really-are before you can see it.) If you were to hear a false premise again and again, until you yourself began to believe and repeat it, now your own activation of the contradictory Vibration would interfere with your own sense of intelligence, and you would begin to attract evidence of your lack of intelligence, in effect proving the false premise to be true. And so, it becomes increasingly hard for you to call this a “false” premise when the evidence seems to be telling you that it is true, for over time you come to believe it is true.”— Abraham

Radiation, the thyroid, and iodine, iodine, iodine: Part III

Here’s Part III of the information and tips on radiation, the thyroid and iodine. For Part I (tips 1-6 of this series), see my 8/16/12 post ….and for Part II (tips 7-11), see 9/8/12.

# 12 – Using bentonite clay for dealing with heavy metals, radiation, and more…


I like the idea of putting the clay in a pillowcase or something similar when taking a clay bath so that you don’t have to worry about clogged drains. Also, EvenBetterNow.com offers a “clog-free” detox clay. And if you’d like more info about bentonite clay….


# 13 – An update on the radiation situation and ways to deal with the side-effects naturally…


FYI, whey and seaweed, two of the things recommended for off-setting the effects of radiation, are available from Emerald Essentials in the form of their Action Whey and Emerald Sea supplements. I have used both personally and highly recommend checking them out. Use kinesiology or some form of self-testing to see if they are something your body wants or needs. I’ve gotten to where I self-test before buying any kind of health products these days and my body always tests strong for these two items. Emerald Essentials is having a special on their vanilla Action Whey until 2/28, where you get 2 free when you order 6.

# 14 – This mentions something I hadn’t read before, a link between fluoride in your water and thyroid dysfunction…

It also mentions the presence of fluoride turning up more and more in our foods. Did you know there’s a high amount found these days in brewed black tea?!


More on the link between fluoride, the thyroid and iodine…


# 15 – Symptoms of thyroid imbalance, how to test and ways to improve the situation…


# 16 – A short video on using coconut oil to improve thyroid health…


# 17 – An insightful blog post by Dr. Nikolas Hedberg about the importance of selenium and its link to thyroid health and iodine deficiency…


# 18 – And to help off-set all this emphasis on “serious stuff”…

(FYI, the Vibes Up products provide earthing/grounding, too, plus have other benefits and uses. You can check out a previous posts on 3/17/12 and 6/17/12 for more details.)

# 5 – QiGong master Michael Mohoric is offering another no cost distant energy healing…

It’s for everyone who wants to join and all their friends, families and anyone else who reads this. The main healing session is SATURDAY, FEB. 23rd from 6-7 pm Pacific Time or same as Los Angeles, (9-10 pm ET-same as New York).

# 6 – And some Abraham to end on…

“Begin modulating thought in terms of the way that it feels rather than in terms of the results that it will net you. The tendency is to flow a little Energy and then take score. Well, the problem is, as you flow the Energy, the Universe responds instantly. But when you take score, you’re right back in that reality again.”— Abraham

Achieving inner peace, astrology update, evidence journal, avocado recipes, magic mushrooms, and Abraham


# 1 – Another great article by Guy Finley titled Are You Looking for Peace in All the Wrong Places?

Key Lesson: Rushing around, hoping to find peace of mind anywhere other than within yourself, is like looking for your heart in someone else’s body!

Higher self-knowledge empowers you to realize the better, brighter life you’ve always wanted! The following four key lessons are taken from Letting Go: A Little Bit at a Time. Use their insights to help you let go of self-limiting patterns such as stress and anxiety in favor of a new order of consciousness that is the cornerstone of energy, clarity, and deep abiding love.

Any confidence you may have based on something outside yourself is also the basis of your self-doubt.

We have been living from an unseen part of ourselves: a self that thinks clinging to wreckage is the same as being rescued.

Letting go has nothing to do with the release of anything outside of yourself.

Here’s the most important thing to remember whenever you find yourself in a mad rush: what you really want, what you’re really after, is a quiet mind — a peaceable state of self reached only by realizing there is no place more empowering for you to be than in the present moment.

This article is excerpted from the book Letting Go. For a free Welcome Kit from Guy’s Life of Learning Foundation, go to: http://www.guyfinley.com/Welcome/36/CD1414/0

# 2 – A great idea from Dr. Robert Anthony…

If you are like most people your life is very busy.  However, I am
asking – no begging you to take just 15 minutes per day to “check
in” with yourself and put SOMETHING in your Evidence Journal.

Using an Evidence Journal to give yourself daily evidence of how
you are shifting and deliberately creating is extremely powerful.

It may seem strange – but it works.

Here is an example for how you can use your Evidence Journal…

If you had a “bad” day then that cannot be changed.  But what can
change is the way you look at it.  Something went “right” today.
Something good happened.  Record that evidence today.

Find something good that you can focus on.  This is what will keep
you in the “flow”.  You are out of the “flow” anytime you focus on
or replay things in your mind that are not in alignment with the
way you want to live.

(FYI, GratitudeLog.com is another way to record your evidence and appreciation for what’s happening in your life.)

# 3 – Recently I featured a link in one of my posts to an article about the benefits of avocados.  Now, here’s one with some avocado recipe ideas. I’m definitely going to try the avocado pudding,….sounds so simple. And the kale/avocado salad (Pickles & Honey site) looks great, plus I learned about massaging kale, which I’d never heard of before!


# 4 – News of more innovative, forward-thinking stuff happening. Yea! How does it get any better than this and what else is possible?! Let’s hear it for mushrooms! 


# 5 – And check out this from Mind Valley…

Register for the free Silva Method Mind Experience and get a centering exercise, plus other helpful techniques http://engage.mindvalley.com/z/348/CD100/&subid1=feb&subid2=email1&subid3=teaser

# 6 – Astrology update for the week from Chris Flisher at http://www.chrisflisher.com….

Week of February 18, 2013

The Sun enters Pisces early in the week and this area of your chart will soon become quite active as we head into the end of the month. A rare collection of planets begin to gather in Pisces which may herald a shift in collective consciousness. Neptune, Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Sun will all be together soon under the sign whose motto is to believe. When planets join together such as this we see a general theme coming to light. With Pisces, the water sign, we come to learn about intuition, wisdom, institutions, dreams, and the unconscious. What does that look like on a larger scale? We are clearly at a significant crossroads where what once worked will no longer sustain. We must accept these facts. As the planet groans under the weight of responsibility we have to face the music with dignity and purpose.

How does this work for you?……see video for extended forecast for planet. 

# 7 – And from Abraham…

Is it possible to be the visionary and the actionary of your own life? Not only possible, it’s the way most of you intended it to be. It’s the best of all worlds. What can be more exhilarating than to find a dream from the contrast, to fixate on the dream and let it give you pleasure as it grows, and then to watch Law of Attraction bring it into manifestation while you help with your action? Does it get any better than that? You didn’t think so as you made the decision to come forth into these physical bodies. You said, “This is the best time in all eternity for a Creator to Create.”— Abraham

Love and more love, benefits of whey, joyful visioning, Tama Kieves, and more!


# 1 – Yes!

# 2 – The benefits of including high quality whey in your diet, including halting cancer and HIV…


(FYI, one of the best, if not the best, wheys I’ve found is Action Whey from Emerald Essentials. Tastes great, too, and my body always tests strong for it. See what your body “says.” :-) And EE is having a sale on the vanilla whey thru 2/28, where you get 2 free containers when you buy a 6-pack. I also use their Emerald Sea. Great stuff!)

# 3 – Creating the life you want with ease and joy…

People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward— Abraham

(Also see the Visioning page of this blog for more on this topic.)

# 4 – A great quote from Tama Kieves…

“It takes so much energy to hide yourself. When you have a job that asks you to hide who you are, it’s like having two full time jobs instead of one. When you have a job that engages all of who you are, it’s like having no “job” at all. There is right work for you. You are designed to thrive.”

# 5 – Thought for the day…

# 6 – And in honor of Valentine’s Day, a great blog post from The Weathly Spirit’s Chellie Campbell…

“Today I forgive all those who have ever offended me. I give my love to all thirsty hearts, both to those who love me and to those who do not love me.”—Paramahansa Yogananda

One Valentine’s Day fell on a Friday, when I had a regularly scheduled business networking meeting. Joe Reber, an estate planning attorney, had brought a valentine for each member of the group—one of the small valentines that we used to give each other in grade school. I could see everyone’s face light up with pleasure as they received their card, remembering with nostalgia their grade school Valentine’s Days. Joe told me he gave one to an older woman he saw at the grocery store and she started to cry. She said she hadn’t gotten a valentine in forty years.

Is it good business for him to do this? Yes.

Is that why he does it? No.

It is clearly a gift from the heart, meant only to give people a moment’s happiness. That’s why it’s good for business.

I want to refer business to a man like that.

Today’s Affirmation: “I give gifts from the heart and they flow back to me in return.”

I remember that Le Tip networking breakfast very well – it was so much fun seeing everyone get their little paper Valentines. When you see people’s faces light up, and that “Awww, thanks” expression, you truly feel how all of us on this planet are connected through the heart.

Celebrate love today. The love of your spouse, partner or significant other. The love of your family – mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grand-nephews, third cousins twice removed – everyone, including the Family of Man. I love Yagananda’s blessing: “I give my love to all thirsty hearts…”

Me, too.

Enjoy this day we celebrate love with loving. May an unexpected miracle of love touch your life today!

Love and hugs,


Enjoy….and Happy Valentine’s Day, “Zippy”

# 6 – And some stimulation from Abraham…

“Don’t worry about this world; it is not broken. And don’t worry about others. You worry more about them than they do. There are people waging war; there are people on the battlefield who are more alive than they’ve ever been before. Don’t try to protect people from life; just let them have their experience while you focus upon your own experience.”— Abraham
