Zippy's tips & picks for a happier, healthier YOU!


Pain, being spiritual, what if?, great pics, HWTM new season, and Abe




# 1 – 


# 2- A wonderful poem and stimulating question from lovely Fiona Craig that seems to fit nicely with Tip #1…..

what if…?

In torrents of rain and stormy weather

Smacked and smote and strung to tether

Or if the fires of hells and furnace flames

Char the soul with rage and blame

And pain, and pain, unbearable pain-

Oh God! They cry, I can bear no more

Release me from this prison’s gore

I’ll do anything! – please – just give relief

From this pain and overwhelming grief

And at a fated hour, some blessed ones

Receive answers, somehow, divinely spun

“What if- what then- your Universe

Is Made by YOU- and no one else-

If all you see, and all you seem

Is nought but a dream, within a dream-

Nay, of your own Creation

Why look beyond You for Your salvation?”

And in an eternal second

– a flicker of light –

And the veil falls away

And I see the video game

For what it is

And I am the fire and I am the rain

And what if –

I choose bliss instead of pain?


# 3 – Oh, I love this one!


# 4 – Some gorgeous pics of our gorgeous planet…..

# 5 – It’s time for another season of the wonderful free series Healing With the Masters hosted by Jennifer McLean!

You may already be familiar with the “7 Rules of Life,” which are:

1) Make peace with your past so it won’t mess up the present.
2) What others think of you is none of your business.
3) Time heals almost everything, give it time.
4) Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is about.
5) Stop thinking too much; it’s alright not to know the answers. They come to you when you least expect it.
6) No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.
7) Breath. All the problems in the world aren’t yours.

Now these rules often seem “easier said than done” right? Well, Healing With the Masters helps you to LIVE those rules with grace and ease. It’s the largest online workshop series out there and offers some great guests sharing lots of information and insights. These top teachers can help you discover…

— vibrant health and wellness
— moving through grief with heart opening grace
— redefining what healthy relationships are
— true wealth and personal freedom

Some of the presenters will include:

— Best-selling author of The Soul Of Money, Lynne Twist, who has worked side by side with Mother Teresa, Desmond Tutu, and His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

— Jo Dunning, who many refer to as “The Miracle Worker”

— Celebrated Intuitive Counselor & Happiness Coach, Kari Samuels

# 6 – And this quote from Abe seems to fit nicely with the “burning question” asked in Fiona’s poem……

For every pleasing thing, there is an unpleasing counterpart, for within every particle of the Universe is that which is wanted as well as the lack of that which is wanted. When you focus upon an unwanted aspect of something in an effort to push it away from you, it only comes closer, because you get what you give your attention to whether it is something that you want or not. It is up to you to focus upon and attract what is wanted.-– Abraham

Day dream, Mother Nature, self inquiry, free health resources, and Abe on inspiration




# 1 – From Elizabeth Gilbert…..


# 2 – Some stimulating self-inquiry questions to spur us on from Rob Brezsny….

1. What feelings and intuitions have you been trying to ignore lately?

2. Which parts of your life are overdue for death?

3. What messages has life been trying to convey to you but which you’ve chosen to ignore?

4. What red herrings, straw men, and scapegoats have you chased after obsessively in order to avoid dissolving your most well-rationalized delusions?

5. What unripe parts of yourself are you most ashamed or fearful of? How can you give those parts more ingenious love?

6. What parts of yourself have the least integrity and don’t act in
harmony with what you regard as your highest values? How can you bring them into alignment with your true desires?

7. Is it possible that in repressing things about yourself that you don’t like, you have also disowned potentially strong and beautiful aspects of yourself? What are they?

8. Are those really flaws that are bugging you about the people whose destinies are entwined with yours, or just incompletely developed talents? Are those really flaws that are bugging you about yourself, or merely incompletely developed talents?

9. It’s easy to see fanaticism, rigidity, and intolerance in other people, but harder to acknowledge them in yourself. Do you dare?



# 3 – A wow from Mother Nature….


# 4 – Check out my latest post at Self-help Health for a wide variety of free health-related events and resources…..



# 5 – Oh, a good one from Abe to end on….

Inspiration comes forth from within. It’s what the light burning within you is about, as opposed to motivation, which is doing it because if you don’t do it, there will be negative repercussions. Motivation is making myself do something that I don’t really want to do. Inspiration is having the clear picture of what I am wanting — and letting Universal forces come into play to get the outcome.

Perfect, earth & heavens, best friends, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Abraham




“I am perfect because I am inseparable from the infinite, the force of life that creates the stars and the entire universe of light.” ~ Miguel Ruiz
(painting by Havi Mandell)


And my second pick is bound to make you animal lovers smile big time; some of the cutest images ever…

# 1- An awe-inspiring video of the earth and sky…..



# 2 – A very insightful, thought-provoking post by Elizabeth Gilbert on pain and what it can teach us……



# 3 – And from Abraham…..

Complaining about anything holds you in the place of refusing to receive the things you’ve been asking for. Justifying about anything holds you in the place of refusing to let in the very things that you’ve been asking for. Blaming someone holds you in the place of refusing to let in the things that you’ve been asking for. Feeling guilty, feeling angry, it doesn’t matter what you call it; it is a refusal, not a conscious one. You’re asking; you can’t help but ask. The Universe is yielding; it must yield. It’s a big question, folks: why aren’t you letting it in? –Abraham

“Never lose hope, my heart,
miracles dwell in the invisible.” ~ Rumi
(painting by Alice Mason)


# 4 – I think this is a great presentation by Carol Dweck. Many of us have heard of the power of “yes,” but how many are aware of the power of “not yet”? An especially good watch for any educators and/or parents…..



# 5 – Check out my latest post at Self-help Health for fascinating information about forgiveness and healing, plus details about free workshops on the chakras and essentials oils and a great documentary titled Sacred Science….



# 6 – And some advice from Abe……

Act a little less and think a little more… We’re not saying stop acting and do it all in mind. We’re saying work your 8 hours or your 10 hours or your 16 hours.. Just spend at least 10 or 15 minutes — in a day where you are working 8-10-16 hours of physical action in order to maintain the physical stuff that you’ve gathered around you — trying to find pleasure from some vision. Afford yourself that. And that 10 or 15 minutes that you are finding pleasure, will cause a focalization of Energy within you that the Universe will actualize around. You will begin to notice that you are more productive, because of 15 minutes of visualization, than you were from 16 hours of hard labor.—Abraham

Personal note: This is why I’m such a big fan of vision writing and Mind Movies. They each do a great job of what Abraham mentions “causing a focalization of Energy within you that the Universe will actualize around.”

The light, the glass, our true identity?, free events, and Abe




# 1 – 


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

We are dissident bodhisattvas rebelling against all those forces that feed
fear and ignore love.

We are spiritual freedom fighters rising up to protect nature and foment
peace and demand justice.

We are subversive mystics stoking the cool blue fires of poetry and
lobbying for the liberated imagination.

We are militant ecstatics invoking the transformative powers of pleasure
to sanctify and beautify our one and only Earth.

We are mutinous purveyors of grace who redistribute the wealth so that
all creatures may have the means to thrive.


# 3 – Good one!


# 4 – Two free events from The Shift Network you may want to check out….

You can join award-winning author Mark Matousek for a free virtual event,Writing to Heal Your Shadows: The Power of Uncovering Your Hidden Truths — taking place Wednesday, August 5th at 5:30 pm Pacific.During this virtual workshop with Mark, you’ll learn how to:

  • Look objectively at parts of yourself you have felt ashamed of and see the gifts they contain.
  • Create a safe space in your writing to express “unallowable” thoughts, emotions, and experiences – without dwelling in them.
  • Use writing to sense and feel different edges and dimensions of traumatic experiences and how they live in your body.
  • Open to the bright and bold potentials within you.

You can save your seat here.


And here’s a second event….

We all know that unconditional love is one of the great goals of life. And yet, too often, our attempts to find a source of love that is not dependent on outer circumstances prove fruitless. That’s why the Shift Network is excited to invite you to join world renowned psychologist Margaret Paul. She will share her advanced insights and practices for experiencing less judgment and more true and lasting self-love during a virtual event called Advanced Teachings for Truly Loving Yourself: Deepening Unconditional Love & Self-Worth Through Inner Bonding (that’s a mouth full!) Thursday, August 6th at 5:30 pm Pacific.

During this special session, you’ll learn some of the most important foundational insights and practices in this approach that you can apply to cultivating self-love — the best foundation for going beyond addictions, dramas and dysfunctions of many kinds.

You’ll also:

  • Get a whole new understanding of what is causing depression and anxiety.
  • Discover how to use self-love, instead of food, to fill emptiness.
  • Approach new relationships from a stance of fullness rather than neediness.
  • Make advances in healing core shame.
  • Move out of stagnation into a life of aliveness, passion and sense of purpose.
  • Learn how to share love rather than get love.

You can learn more and register here.

You can also check my latest post at Self-help Health for the benefits of humming and details about a free 5-day on-line epigenetics workshop….


# 5 – And from Abe….

Your emotion, your indicator of vibration, is indicating the ratio between your currently focused desire and any other belief or thought that you hold about same. When you feel negative emotion, anger about something, or fear… the name of the emotion does not matter, it always means that there is a desire within you that, in this moment, you are contradicting with some other thought. Your emotions are always about your relationship with your own desire, and nothing else.—Abraham
