Gratitude, double good news, look for the positive, Guy Finley, and Awakening Thru Intimacy


# 1 – 

# 2 – A dose of good news, or should I say, news that is good from my particular point of view :-)….

And more good news…

# 3 – In the world of real estate there’s the saying that what’s important is “location, location, location.” When it comes to consciously creating what you want, I guess you could say it’s “attention, attention, attention.”

# 4 – This article from Guy Finley fits in nicely with Tip # 3….

Discover the Hidden Gift
in Any Disturbance

The problem isn’t that life is filled with disturbance. Nothing in nature grows and changes without upheaval! In the grand scheme of things, from the infinitesimal to the celestial… Your life is meant to move from one disturbance to another.

But along with this disturbance you can also see the constant beauty, fulfillment, and perfection of the rebirth of new life. You can’t have one without the other.

The problem, when it comes to ourselves, is that we can’t see past the disturbance to the perfection and new life that arises out of it. We only see what we don’t want.

And this negative mindset cuts us off from all the other marvelous possibilities that are open to us in the very same moment as the disturbance.

Right in the very heart of every disturbance lies a clue to its meaning and access to its transformational power.

When we miss it, everything seems bleak. But when we learn how to look for and unlock this hidden treasure, even the darkest moment brings with it an unexpected brilliance, which is why in the Chinese language “crisis” and “opportunity” are expressed by the same symbol.

It’s only when we reach into the heart of some disturbance, whatever its nature, that we are able to divine the reason for its existence within us.

And when this unseen relationship between some unwanted crisis and the birth of a new order of consciousness within us becomes apparent to us, we can’t help but see the good in what seemed bad just the moment before; and in this exact moment of awakening… we are flooded with the love of life.

Use This Basic Key to Stop Being Afraid (of Anything!)

There is one basic key to genuine confidence and a happiness that can’t be diminished in the face of any disturbance life throws at you. It’s knowing that whatever happens to you is for the good of you — and because of that you have the power to handle anything with ease.

With that kind of inner certainty, you are always the master of the moment. You know that nothing can ever throw you off balance. You will always land on your feet. Better yet, you will always land in a place higher than where you were before.

  • Imagine the freedom and assurance you’d feel if you met every moment of your life with that kind of inner confidence.
  • Think how alive you would feel if you were able to enter each new day knowing that no matter who you met, or what happened to you, you would always have the inner resources to handle it perfectly.
  • Wouldn’t you always love your life knowing it was all a feast prepared for you to help you reach the next level above yourself?

Here’s something to think about (consider it your first lesson in beginning to love your life):

It’s impossible to need something that doesn’t already exist to fulfill that need.

For instance: We couldn’t “need” air, water, or food if these necessities of life didn’t already exist. We “need” to be able to feel what others are feeling, or else there could be no compassion.

Well… The same exact principle holds true when it comes to love.

The very fact that most of us feel the hole in our soul that we do — for the lack of love — is the proof that the love we long for already resides somewhere within us and is natural to us, or we couldn’t have this sensing that something vital was missing.

We just don’t have eyes to see what’s right in front of us. That’s why we need to have the evidence shown to us — to open our eyes and remind us of what we already know.

And that’s the purpose of this letter: to let you know that the help you need is available.

Putting things in perspective, finding faith, self/Self image, a whale of a story, and Abraham

Finding Faith When You’re Freaking Out: You Couldn’t Be More Loved

# 3 – Hey, I guess they’re ALL “picks” today!


# 4 – A great story….a whale of a tale….:-)

A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.
A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her…. a very dangerous proposition. One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.
They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.
When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.
The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

# 5 – And from good ole Abe….

The Eternal Laws of the Universe steadily hold the promise of expansion and joy. Understanding the Laws will reawaken within you the knowledge of your purpose and your own personal power as you remember how to access the power of the Universe that creates worlds.

If this time-space reality has within it the ability to inspire a desire within you, it is absolute that this time-space reality has the ability to yield you a full and satisfying manifestation of that same desire. It is Law. –Abraham

Dreams come true, Zirah, that’s what they do. The only variable is when. For the slow approach: Resist. Attach. Insist. Deny. Stop. Second guess. Whine. Argue. Defend. Protest. Cry. Struggle. And ask others, when you know the answer yourself. For the quick approach: Visualize. Pretend. Prepare. Dodge. Roll. Serpentine. Do not waiver over intentions, but over methods. Show up, even when nothing happens. And give thanks in advance. Serpentine, Zirah, serpentine!!!!

Four Agreements, one “Lucky” dog, free e-courses, life experience, radiation update, Aquarius full moon, and “it”


Good “Cliff Notes” version of The Four Agreements…



# 1 – I just recently found out about this site. Haven’t tried any of the free e-courses offered there yet, but might be worth checking out for some of you. In the personal development area they have a course on Growing Organic Food Sustainably, another course on Physical Fitness Training Principles and Methods, and Digital Photography….


# 2 – I can’t help myself….I love a good animal story with such a happy/”Lucky” ending.  I just sent off a donation to this rescue organization in honor of my mother, who passed away recently. Boy, did that feel good. :-)


# 3 – A good perspecitve to have on life…


# 4 –  And in keeping with the message of Tip # 3, here’s one of the best articles I’ve found on the radiation situation in Japan (and, consequently, the world). It comes from a place of aiming not to engender fear, but awareness,  so we can see the situation as the powerful call that it is for a shift in consciousness and need for change in the way we go about life….


# 5 –  Update on the Aquarius full moon and other astrological events from Henry Seltzer at….

Tuesday’s Full Moon comes at that time of fulfillment in the lunar cycle, when what was conceived at the moment of inspiration represented by the New Moon two weeks prior becomes seasoned by the intervening trials and insights to become the original idea’s mature flowering and culmination. The masculine and feminine elements of Sun and Moon, in their balance across the Zodiac, are symbolically also about relating to one another. In this particular configuration this concept of relationship is also symbolized by a prominent Venus, in her own sign of Libra, and in aspect with both Saturnand Neptune.

Saturn and Neptune are still for one more week caught up in their long-running trine, which brings their antithetical natures into uneasy combination.Saturn represents physical reality and practicality, perhaps even too much of that, while Neptune represents the numinous realm of otherworldly dream imagination that you might consider to be orthogonal to that earthly plane of existence that Saturn symbolizes, in what noted astrologer Antero Ali likes to call the vertical dimension. We need some of each of these for good relating to others around us; both the divine spark, and as well the practicality of being able to work things out together. Since both planetary archetypes are currently in aspect to Venus in her sign of relationship, both come into play right now for getting on with our process of connection, one important part of what we all came here to do.

Saturn with Venus and with Neptune can in some ways stifle the divine spark of imaginative interaction, but this Full Moon also provides another chime with the creativity of divine imagination, because Jupiter in Cancer comes into an exact square with Uranus in Aries, both of them at the 13th degree of their respective cardinal signs, and also both aspecting Chiron in Pisces. This Chiron factor symbolizes the profound healing of our original psychological wounding that can now unexpectedly take place.

The JupiterUranus part of this alignment is also very beautiful, symbolizing the creativity of individual uniqueness and the potential for rebellion from a stale and outmoded status quo. In his epochal must-read work Cosmos and Psyche, astrologer Richard Tarnas describes JupiterUranus in his section entitled “Cycles of Creativity and Expansion,” detailing the multiple forms of scientific and political/social breakthrough that have occurred under their combination. This summer, centered around this Full Moon, is therefore a time of brilliant ideas and cultural breakthrough. As regards significant partnership, if Saturn represents a cage that has grown up and calcified within a relationship context, JupiterUranus represents a sudden doorway that can release both participants from the cage.

The Sabian symbols for Jupiter and Uranus are interesting. For Jupiter “A hand, flexed, with a prominent thumb,” representing — as well as a Jupiterian thumbs-up — the human tool-making capacity that by extension applies to the creative mind as well. For Uranus we have “An unsuccessful bomb explosion,” for which Marc Edmond Jones has the very Uranian keyword IMPETUOUSNESS. He states that this symbol equates to “a dramatic rejection of any accomplishment falling at all short of very deep or hallowed purpose.”

In the flurry of these times that we are living through, in their impetuousness and sacred wonder, we must indeed constantly strive, each one of us, to aim for the very highest — as we can currently conceive it.

And if you’d like a more “artistic” slant on full moon in Aquarius, check out this post at and write your own acknowledgements page (mentioned in the article)…


# 6  – And from Esther Hicks…

My favorite thing that Abraham said in Seattle last Saturday was, “Having fun on your way to it, is the reason for it.”


So I guess we’ve really got our “work” (play?) cut out for us….using things like the radiation situation mentioned in Tip # 4 as the evolutionary driver that it is and somehow making sure that evolutionary journey is fun. Suggestions or comments on how you plan to go about that in your life?

3 Ways to Ease Into a BIG Shift


6820841318_e65928ea47_bSooner or later everyone experiences a BIG Shift. Whether it’s a major life change or an unexpected crisis, you’re sure to be presented with an opportunity to take a quantum leap in your world.

Though a BIG Shift can initially feel like a destructive force in your life – tearing down in a flash things that have taken you energy and effort to create – you can choose to use it as a growth opportunity.

Here are 3 ways you can ease into a BIG Shift:

1. Ask for support. It’s great to be a giver, but if you have trouble asking for help, you create an energetic imbalance. Life is an ongoing exchange. Sometimes you’re the giver. Sometimes you’re the receiver. BIG Shifts are a tremendous opportunity to receive. Plus, receiving gifts the giver. Think of how wonderful it feels when you give. Do you really want to deprive those who care for you the blessing of being there for you? I think not!

2. Design a high vibing environment. Your environment can either help or hinder your BIG Shift. Make sure that your living space nurtures you and that the people in your every day world are high vibing. Eliminate energy drains, whether it’s clutter in your environment or people that siphon your life force. BIG Shifts are dynamic environments of massive growth. Just like plants need sun, water and soil to grow so do you need life giving energy sources to power up your transformation.

3. Allow yourself time to process. Big shifts have their own rhythm. This is profound stuff. It takes whatever time it takes. Sit in silence. Engage in a practice that opens your flow and your access to white space. This is a time for clearing out the inner clutter and embracing a less is more approach. Tune in to your new sense of timing. Things make take longer and your own rhythm may change. Honor the process and your own way of moving through it.

Some of these recommendations may be a stretch for you, but I guarantee that if you are willing to engage just ONE of these your massive change will start to flow with ease and grace. Take a stand for your BIG Shift.

# 3 – Oh God (and I do mean the big “g” kind, because this is God in action in my opinion), this is one of the best videos I’ve watched. Didn’t want it to end, but would have needed more hankies if it had been longer. Have seen several of the segments before, but putting them all together really, as the title says, helps restore faith in humanity.

# 4 – Useful information and insight into the current Jupiter in Cancer astrological phase (2013-2014) from Tami Brunk at…

# 5 – Vision with action….

“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”- Joel A. Barker

Clarify and energize your vision by writing it down, then use that as a template/guideline for taking action and creating your heart’s desires. See the EME Visioning page for all the benefits that come from writing a vision.

“Show me the money,” Global Oneness Day, being “box-less,” crazyrichfree event, free album, and Abraham


If you are new to Access Consciousness, here’s a great question/process to introduce you to it. Access is all about the question,…. but not the answer, if you know what I mean.  Answers/conclusions put a stop to the flow of energy and expansion, whereas always being in the question continually keeps generating and attracting more possibilities/choices. The line of questioning is this particular example reminds me a little  of the famous “Show me the money” line in Jerry McGuire….. 

What if receiving money was easy?

When you become aware that everything has consciousness and is willing to contribute to you abundantly, it may start to make you wonder why you are receiving so little?
Here it is… mostly we aren’t willing to ask! So here’s a question we ask of everything… the trees, the roads, the birds and the bees, people we love, people who drive us nuts… we ask this question everywhere and of everything (mostly we ask it quietly to ourselves unless we’re singing it in the car, otherwise people tend to stare and point!)

“Can I have the money now please?”

Sometimes we teach this simple tool at business events. Recently there was a young man who enthusiastically played with the question just to see what could show up. He came back a month later and said “I’ve been asking ‘Can I have the money now please?’ every day, every time I think of it. My monthly budget target is $40,000 in sales, this month I did $80,000 in just three days.” WOW!! How does it get even better than that?
So would you be willing to ask that question every time you think about money? And would you be willing to receive the money when it shows up?
Questions open the doors, answers and conclusions shut off the energy – The Access Consciousness Team.

Physical pain is just an extension of emotion. It’s all the same thing. There are two emotions. One feels good and one feels bad. Which means, you’re connected to your Energy Stream or you’re not allowing your Energy Stream.—Abraham
