True abundance, meditation for weight loss, the 3 Cs, plant talent show, and Abraham


PICK OF THE DAY:

TIPS OF THE DAY:

# 1 – Here’s something I found out about via Lucas at Yoga Body Naturals…..

Jon Gabriel and Carol Look are leading a 21-Day Meditation Challenge. It’s free to join, and you’ll get sent a daily, 10-minute meditation to your inbox.

According to Jon, mental and emotional stresses can trigger a fat-storage response even more so than diet…
and this explains why so many people today, who are committed to losing weight with traditional diet and exercise programs, ultimately fail.  As Jon says: “If you don’t deal with the mental and emotional
stresses in your life, 80% of the problem has been left unresolved.” That’s why diets don’t work long term.
And this is why meditation can be a huge breakthrough when it comes to weight loss.

If this is your first introduction to meditation, I can’t think of a simpler, more effective way to begin managing
your stress, cultivating inner peace, and developing a practice that could serve you for life. Lucas says that even if you’re not looking to lose weight, he’s heard 5 of these meditations already, and they are fantastic for stress relief, something everyone can probably use more of.

# 2 – The three “Cs” of an expansive life…

Actually, isn’t life always changing, whether we want it to or not? It’s just that when we take chances and make choices we are consciously participating in and creating the types of changes we want.

# 3 – For you Nature lovers out there, this is an interesting and fascinating read about how amazing Mother Nature can be…

http://www.realfarmacy.com/the-plant-talent-show/

# 4 – And some Abraham to end on…

Most think in terms of thought affecting the world: You think about transmitting outward: “I’m going to affect the world from my outgoing signal.” That isn’t the way it works. You affect the world by achieving the vibration that brings the signals to you. You create a nucleus that Universe has to respond around. That is how you are the creator.—Abraham

Enlightenment Abe style, happiness habits, real superheroes, Money Mindfest, and perception


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Abraham’s take on enlightenment…

Enlightenment means literally aligning to the Energy of my Source. And genius is only about focusing. Law of Attraction takes care of everything else. Physical humans often want to make enlightenment about finding some process and moving through the process that has been pre-described. But true enlightenment is moving to the rhythm of the internal inspiration that is coming in response to the individual desire. Enlightenment is about allowing my connection to the Source that is me for the fulfillment of the things that I have individually defined here in my time/space reality. That’s as good as it gets!—Abraham

# 2 – Interesting, insightful article on happiness habits…

# 3 –  A great little story that sounds like something out of a sit-com, but is for real….

http://thefw.com/batman-and-captain-america-rescue-burning-house/?upworthy

# 4 – Money, money, money fest!

It’s Gratitude Day!!


Normally I don’t do posts back-to-back….I like to give people a little space to digest the previous post before the next one shows up (plus, putting these posts together is time consuming for me, so it gives me some breathing room, too :-)). But today is Gratitude Day and I found a couple of things I wanted to share.

First, an e-mail I received this morning from Radical Forgiveness author Colin Tipping, which happens to contain an offer for a free copy of his Radical Manifestation e-book (wow, something to be grateful for right off the bat! :-))…

There are a couple of dates Hallmark doesn’t seem to have picked up on yet.  I have just checked their website and noticed two they do not mention and for which they offer no cards.  One is September 21st: World Gratitude Day.  The second is July 7th: World Forgiveness Day.I think there is a great case for having a gratitude card, but I am very glad there is no such thing as a forgiveness card.  It would almost certainly do more harm than good.  Sending someone a card saying, “I have forgiven you,” would be interpreted as an accusation or judgment in disguise and as totally inauthentic.  If you feel the need to tell people you have forgiven them, you haven’t really forgiven them.  It is just another way to manipulate them.  So, on July 7th next year, forget about communicating forgiveness.  Just do it.  It’s an inside job.It’s quite different with gratitude.  What harm can it do to express your gratitude outwardly especially to those who have earned it?  None.  Yes, I know there are Thank You cards, but that’s usually a thank you for something specific, whereas gratitude is an expression of a deep and profound feeling of thankfulness and full throated appreciation.  Wouldn’t it be nice to send someone a card that says, I am so grateful you are in my life?

Even though, as yet, there is no card for gratitude, having a World Gratitude Day is a great idea, if for no other reason than it serves as a reminder to people who, like me, need to be reminded.  I’m afraid I tend to get so wrapped up in what I am doing that I fail to tell people how grateful I am to have them in my life. (My wife and my co-workers would confirm this fact.)

I also deprive myself of a lot of joy by not consciously feeling a heartfelt gratitude for the things I have manifested in my life: my relationships, my health, my talents and all that I have that brings me pleasure.  I am so incredibly rich even before I earn my first penny.

Just to be reminded on one day each year to stop and smell the roses makes a difference.  Nothing raises our vibration more than the feeling of gratitude.  Imagine what a contribution it would make to the world if on that one day, everyone took time out to feel gratitude for all they have. . . most of which is free anyway.

Gratitude and Radical Forgiveness (not conventional forgiveness) are closely related.  That’s because, through the process of Radical Forgiveness, you come to see that what happened to you was divinely guided. In every sense, it was a gift from your own Higher Self and from that of the other person, assuming another was involved.  Anger and resentment give way to a feeling of gratitude.

So today, September 21st, do some Radical Forgiveness in addition to putting time aside to contemplate what makes every day a Gratitude Day.

Blessings,

Colin Signature

Second, here’s something from Stacey Robyn and the crew at Go Gratitude…

Greetings Beloveds –

September 21 is World Gratitude Day … and the International
Day of Peace.  Celebrations, gatherings, and global meditations
are happyning across the face of the planet, all in the Spirit of
Love, Peace and Gratitude!


Since its inception in 1977, World Gratitude Day has marked our personal and planetary procession into a greater awareness and mastery of the power of Gratitude in our lives.  We are grateful for each and every Beloved,  Luminary, Wisdom tradition, sage and soul who has carried forward the torch of Gratitude and illuminated the world.  This includes YOU!

Of course, Gratitude is most potent when practiced on a daily
basis AND it is a gift to gather our hearts and focus on this
day each year to come together and celebrate what we are
grateful for in our lives.

The beauty of World Gratitude Day is anyone, anywhere can
join in the celebrations.  It can be as simple as saying a Prayer
of Thanks, writing a Thank You note to someone who has made
a difference in our lives, or lighting a candle and sitting in silence …
allowing each breath to flow as a prayer of Gratitude.

Many groups are also gathering on this Day of Love, Peace and Gratitude.  www.Unify.org is live-streaming events across the globe, and offers a tool for locating gatherings in your local area, too.

Third, here’s an inspiring post about “doing good deeds” and the wonderful giving and receiving (and gratitude generating) aspect of it all…

http://wordsthatserve.wordpress.com/good-deed-weeks/

And don’t forget to check out GratitudeLog.com, which I’ve mentioned in previous posts. A great place to record what you’re grateful for each day… and a wonderful community of people from all over the planet.

And finally, animals and Nature are two of the things that always inspire gratitude and appreciation in me. What does it for you? To anyone who leaves a comment about what they are grateful for today I will be happy to send a free copy of Wes Hopper’s The Power of Gratitude

Enjoy and have a gratitude-filled day, “Zippy”

Being authentic, falling down, Andrew Harvey on Rumi, consciousness upgrade, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Authenticity is where it’s at! Plus, isn’t what’s “positive” just a judgment call anyway? What I perceive as positive may seem negative to someone else. And often trying to stay positive causes us to repress and suppress things that need to be acknowledged, felt and released. But then that’s just my point of view. :-)

# 2 – This great post from ladyinthehouse.net fits in nicely with the first tip because kids are so darn authentic, until, that is, parents and society unfortunately train them to be otherwise…

http://ladyinthehouse.net/2013/09/03/out-of-the-mouths-of-babes/

# 3 – Hmm, I never thought of it that way…. What may seem like a failure or negative experience is really a blessing when viewed from another perspective.

# 4 – And I love the sayings/poetry/wisdom of Rumi, so I’m happy to know about this upcoming free event sponsored by The Shift Newtwork…

It’s amazing but true: a 13th century Sufi poet from Turkey is now rated the most popular poet of our time.  And it’s no wonder, for as we face a multi-faceted global crisis, the words of Rumi hold precious wisdom to help us make it through our collective challenges in a way that no other poetry can.

If you would like to deepen your awareness of the spiritual power of Rumi’s poetry to liberate your soul and help us navigate these times,  then sign up for this event on Wednesday, September 25th. Host Andrew Harvey, a renowned author of more than 40 books including Rumi and The Way of Passion, will be presenting Renaissance: How His Wisdom Can Liberate Your Soul and Our World.

In this special free call event, Harvey, one of the world’s most passionate Rumi mystic-scholars, will reveal the sacred significance of Rumi’s life and work, illuminating why his poems are penetrating the heart of the world as never before.

If you haven’t heard Andrew before, you’re in for a real treat. Marianne Williamson says about him: “Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us. And when a generation is very, very lucky, it encounters a teacher so illumined that the words he delivers must be illumined as well. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky.”  

Even if you are not able to attend live, go ahead and register so you can get access to the recording later.

# 5 – Here’s something else free that sounds worth checking out….

Evolutionary Wealth is offering a free Consciousness Upgrade: September 2013 “Reboot” to assist people in unhooking from the matrix and coming into alignment with the truth of who they really are. The event is on Sunday, Sept. 22nd at 7pm EDT and you can sign up at the following link to receive event details, plus a reminder of the call and an MP3 of the presentation:

http://evolutionarywealth.org/reboot/

# 6 – And it’s good to know that sometimes 55% is good enough :-)

The things that we would be asking ourselves is, “What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?” And you don’t have to do 100%, you don’t have to do 90%, you don’t have to do 80%. If you could even get around 55% feeling better, than not feeling so good — you’d have significant movement in what begins to happen in your experience.—Abraham

# 3 – Good news!

# 4 – If you follow this blog then you know I’m a fan of Guy Finley. He’s so practical and no-nonsense in his approach to personald development and spiritual empowerment. Here’s an article of his that was featured in Om Times that you might find, well, empowering. :-)

If we really want to grow inwardly, we must choose to go inward; only in the true Presence Moment can we realize the truth of ourselves that does, indeed, set us free. Such higher discoveries that set the stage for reclaiming your True Self call for higher learning. Think of each of the following eleven laws as individual magic strands of a flying carpet. Make it your aim to weave them together in your mind. Then watch how these lessons combine to effortlessly lift you into higher and higher levels of yourself.

The First Law 

Nothing can stop you from starting over.

The greatest power you possess for succeeding in life is your understanding that life gives you a fresh start any moment you choose to start fresh. Nothing that stood in your way even a heartbeat before stands there now in the same way. It’s all new, even if you can’t as yet see it that way. You’ve only to test the truth of this fact about the newness of life to discover the incredible freedom that waits for you just behind it. And then nothing can stop you. You’ll know the real secret and the perfect power of starting over.

The Second Law 

Don’t be afraid to see when something doesn’t work.

Learn to be sensitive and to listen to the inner signals that try and tell you when something isn’t working. You know what they are. Frustration and resentment to name just a few. The presence of these emotional troubles aren’t trying to tell you that you can’t succeed, only that the road you’ve insisted upon taking so far doesn’t lead where you want. Learning to admit when something isn’t working is the same as teaching yourself what will.

Read the rest of the article and find out the other 9 laws here:

# 5 – Sept 17th marked the beginning of “40 Days to Oneness and Global Oneness Day on Oct. 24th. Want to get involved?

Join thousands of others from around the world for a FREE Virtual Event to Catalyze an Awakened World. #G1Day2013: Inspiration, Celebration and a Conscious Rally to #Oneness –http://www.globaloneness2013.org/

# 6 – Love, love, love this one from Abraham…

Reduce your workload by 30% and increase your fun load by 30% and you will increase your revenues by 100%. And you will increase your productivity by 10,000%. (If there could be such a percentage.) More fun, less struggle — more results on all fronts.—Abraham

Each morning, find the blessing, simple religion, cleaner oceans, healthier food, and a double dose of Abraham


PICK OF THE DAY:

Oh to awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face; to greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the ultimate purpose toward which I am working; to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done – this is how I desire to waste wisely my days. — Thomas Dekker

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Always look for the blessing; often it’s not immediately obvious, but if we look for it, it will be there…..

# 2 – Words to live?

# 3 – Some good news for the environment. Boy, “youngsters” are really coming up with some great ideas these days…

http://www.classwarfareexists.com/the-invention-that-solves-plastic-pollution-in-the-pacific/

# 4 – And speaking of good news and cleaning up the environment, check out my recent post on Self-help Health about a great little device that can not only help you stay healthier, but save you lots of money, AND help clean up the environment. Yes!

http://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2013/09/16/a-revolutionary-way-to-save-on-food/

# 5 – And a double dose of Abraham….

“I must be aware of bad things, and guarded about bad things, and I must watch out for bad things by trying to guide myself toward good things.” You can’t do both at the same time. You can’t watch out for bad things, and allow good things at the same time. It is vibrationally not possible.”

And this one is from the book Money and The Law of Attraction

Once you are able to achieve and consistently maintain your personal alignment, a great deal of money will flow into your experience (if that is your desire).

Do not let others set the standards about how much money you should have— or about what you should do with it— for you are the only one who could ever accurately define that. Come into alignment with who-you-really-are, and allow the things that life has helped you to know that you want to flow into your experience.
