# 6 – And this is an interesting distinction I don’t I’ve ever gotten before about emotion…..sort of like the trailer for a movie….I thought it and thought were both creating….

The Universe does not know if the vibration you are offering is because of what you are imagining, or because of what you are observing. In either case, it is responding. Emotion is your guidance or your response to your vibration. Your emotion does not create. Emotion is your indicator of what you are already creating. As you think, you vibrate. And it is your vibrational offering that equals your point of attraction. So, what you are thinking and what is coming back to you is always a vibrational match. The emotion (your Guidance System) is telling you what’s coming.–Abraham

Smile, imagination, toe touch, grateful heart, special relationships, and your mind IS a garden


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Try it….you’ll like it! :-)

 

# 2 – Ole Albert was pretty sharp, wasn’t he?

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. — Albert Einstein

 

# 3 – This is an insightful, thought-provoking read…..

toes

As Moshe Feldenkrais wrote in Awareness Through Movement:

“Despite the fact the inherited differences are obvious, there are few individuals who view themselves without reference to the value attributed to them by society. Like a man trying to force a square peg into a round hole, so the individual tries to smooth out his biological peculiarities by alienating himself from his inherent needs. He strains to fit himself into the round hole that he now actively desires to fill, for if he fails in this, his value will be so diminished in his own eyes as to discourage further initiative.”

# 4 – Beautiful image and great reminder….

 

# 5 – Delightful story and video about a special relationship between a man, a dog and a hummingbird…..

 

# 6 – And have you heard the metaphysical saying “your mind is a garden; you can grow flowers or you can grow weeds”? Well, turns out that’s very close to the truth…..

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

Cosmic Soul, Beauty & Truth, the homeless & their pets, two free events, new moon, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1-  A  short video called Cosmic Soul that helps put everything into an expanded perspective…

 

# 2 –  Entertaining, thought-provoking excerpts from Rob Brezsny’s Beauty & Truth Lab….

DEAR BEAUTY AND TRUTH LAB: I’ve wrestled all my life with fear. But
lately it’s been even worse than usual. My personal demons seem to be
winning, or at least getting the better of the fight. I think it’s related to
the fact that when I caught wind of the idea of pronoia, I started working
hard to lose all my illusions. Now I’m thinking maybe that was a mistake.
Perhaps I needed my illusions to keep the demons at bay? – Crybaby

DEAR CRYBABY: Hang on. This is the toughest part of your struggle. It
may seem that the illusions you dissolved were the main barriers
safeguarding you from your demons. But what’s more likely is that those
illusions were food for your demons. Very soon now the demons will have
devoured the last of their fuel and will start to starve. If they don’t die
off, they will at least fly away in search of other nourishment.

+     +     +     +     +     +     +

DEAR BEAUTY AND TRUTH LAB: Two months ago I met the first person
with whom I am completely psychic. We fell deeply in love, of course. But
it turned out that neither of us was ready or able to fulfill the potential of
our connection because we are nowhere near as profoundly in love with
ourselves as we are with each other. The good news is that through my
love for him, I have intensified my desire to learn to love myself. The bad
news is that we can’t really be together as fate intended until we upgrade
our self-love. Can you offer any consolation? – Lucky Yet Unlucky in Love

Dear Lucky: We appreciate your sage caution, but also offer this
alternative view from actress Tallulah Bankhead: “If I had to live my life
again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.”

# 3 – Wow, I hope you take the time to watch this. Heart-warming, inspiring, sad and happy…

http://www.viralnova.com/homeless-and-their-dogs/

# 4 – Two free upcoming events from The Shift Network….

In our fast-paced world it’s rare to connect deeply with spirit and sustain that connection in daily life, which is why Shift Network would like to introduce you to Joey Klein–a young and dynamic teacher who combines ancient spiritual practices with cutting-edge Western science to show us how to live a life where every expression is of spirit. 

On July 30th, Joey will offer a free tele-seminar titled Navigating Your Inner Matrix: 3 Keys to Harness Your Spiritual Power & Optimize Your Experience of Life.”

On Joey’s call you will:

  • Gain an understanding of what your inner matrix is and how it defines your current experience of life.
  • Learn tools to break free of limiting mental, emotional and physical patterns.
  • Understand how to step into deeper connection with others.
  • Begin to experience daily life as an expression of your soul’s essence.

Reserve your free seat here.

Next, a reminder that you’re invited to The Future of YogaEvolving Your Practice, Changing Our World” August 4th-6th.  This event has a powerful intention to advance a new and authentically integrated approach to yoga; one that does not segment our practice into a corner of our lives, but begins to enliven all aspects of our lives with radiance. 

The event features some of the wisest, most innovative, and boldest teachers of our day, including Judith Lasiter, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Richard Miller and Deva Premal.

You can sign up for free here.

# 5 –  Astrograph.com’s take on the current new moon phase and other cosmic happenings….

The New Moon of Saturday, July 26th, takes us on a very special ride. The Sun and Moon are conjunct positive and optimistic Jupiter, and yet also inconjunct nebulous Neptune, indicating that in spite of an unbridled sense of optimism that can move mountains, things might not be entirely what they appear. With a prominent Saturn-Uranus aspect also triggered by the event of this lunation, there is always looming as well the downside to simple goal orientation, consisting of unexpected limitations that could prevent unadulterated success. Mercury is finally past its retrograde shadow, moving through the last third of the feeling-toned sign of Cancer, with Venus nearby, provoking a thoughtful view of life and love that is emotionally depth-oriented as well as full of intellectual awareness. This is especially so because Venus is almost exactly opposite to Pluto in the timing of Saturday afternoon’s New Moon. Our ongoing transformation takes on a relationship orientation as we move through these summer months and head into further profound change in the autumn of the year…

# 6 – Hmmmm, definitely food for thought (pun intended :-))…..

Many tell us that they are so busy making their money that they do not have time to enjoy it . . . for when you rely on your action to create, often you are too tired to enjoy your creation. Once you not only understand the power of your thought, but you deliberately direct this powerful tool in the direction of things that you desire, then you will discover that the action part of your life is the way you enjoy what you have created through your thought.—Abraham

Nature, Nature and MORE Nature, plus a little Abe


PICK OF THE DAY:

Wow, watching and listening to this was like a moving meditation…..

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Love it! 

I came across this right (shared on FB by Sandra Maa) after talking to my best friend about the sadness she was feeling about her cat going M. I. A. She said this looks like an orchid angel bird. Yes! Mother Nature is awesome!

Your sadness is intelligent, alive, and full of information; it has something within it that joy could never offer.
Your longing contains a frequency of wisdom, and serves as a bridge between you and the unseen world.
Your burning and your confusion are secret ways that love is polishing you.–Matt Licata

(FYI, if you’d like to see more pics of orchids that look tigers, aliens, dancers and a bunch of other amazing things, go here: http://pulptastic.com/16-flowers-that-look-like-something-else/)

 

# 2 – Whimsical and beautiful. Nature at Its best…..From Our Beautiful World & Universe on FB

 

# 3 – Mother Nature never ceases to amaze….

 

# 4 – Ahhh, nothing like a good motherly lick…..

 

# 5 – OMG, Plitvice Lakes Nationa Park, Croatia….

 

# 6 – This should get your morning off with a smile :-)

 

# 7 – And a good one to end on.  Happy Saturday everyone!

Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before yours eyes, but it is not by magic. It is by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate alignment with those Laws.

—Abraham

Forgiving, moving forward, dog on a bed, magic trail, and Abraham


HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL YOU MOMS OUT THERE!!

 

PICK OF THE DAY:

This is a great article by Tama Kieves, especially for anyone who has had or has a difficult relationship with their mother (I can relate!)…… 

Forgiving Your Mother, Yourself, and Everyone: This is Your Lifetime to Get it Right

This Mother’s Day you have the chance to get it right. 

You have the chance to open up to the one of the most significant relationships of your life. (Or moms, same goes with your kids.) My mom left this planet back in 2011. One of the best things I ever did with my life was work on healing my relationship with her. The struggle to love and forgive is a worthy struggle. It’s heroic. And it will affect every other relationship in your life.  And guess what?  For me, it all came down to loving myself. Go figure.So this is a piece I wrote years ago, while visiting my mother in upstate New York. (I’ve edited it today.) I felt challenged at the time. I wanted to be the perfect daughter. But there’s something about dealing with our families that’s like taking acid. You go on a trip. Things come out of the blue. People grow extra heads. Then you come back and you think– what was that all about?

“Those who see themselves as whole make no demands,” teaches A Course in Miracles. Well, clearly, those who seem themselves as wild animals act accordingly.

Being with my mother, I can’t believe how quickly I am triggered. I am A Course in Miracles teacher, which if you don’t know is all about forgiveness and choosing love. But as I hide away upstairs in the cutesy, cluttered guest bedroom of my mother’s townhouse, I wonder if the material really only works for my students. Because at the moment I’m foaming at the mouth. That can’t be good.  

The truth is I’m tired. I’m weakened. I don’t have it in me to be conscious and centered. So I have to forgive myself. I am trying. I am daring. I am not saying cruel things, even when I caress the knives in my mind. I am trying. I am daring, I remind myself. I know my intentions are 90% pure.

I’ve entered into the lion’s lair. I’m facing it. I’m not hiding out at 2,000 miles away or in a therapist’s office or sitting cross legged, staring at a guru’s toenails. I’m not in downward dog. Hell, I’m in downward spiral. I’m right here in the middle of it all. This pain is not a concept or a story I tell a safe friend. This pain is sitting across the table from me, telling me stories about people I don’t know, judging wildly, freely, not a politically correct cell in her body or an ounce of self-consciousness. And of course, I am rabidly judging her for judging others.

TIPS FOR TODAY

# 1 – This seemed to fit nicely with the pick of the day….

The day comes when we decide that it no longer serves us to blame our parents, our family, our boss, our circumstances or anyone or anything else and we decide it’s time to move forward simply because we’re worth it. And that’s the day, despite our circumstances, that we begin to discover just how powerful we really are.

# 2 – On a lighter note…..

Dog Dances On Bed

# 3 – For me, Tama Kieves and her article are a good example of this. I enjoyed it so much because she was being so authentic and not worried about seeming unspiritual or unenlightened….

 

# 4 – And this is a good one from Abraham to remember…..

If you intend to be of assistance, your eye is not upon the trouble but upon the assistance, and that is quite different. When you are looking for a solution, you are feeling positive emotion— but when you are looking at a problem, you are feeling negative emotion.—Abraham

# 1 –

# 2 – For you  animal lovers, some facts and pics to make you smile…especially the last 3….

http://www.viralnova.com/awesome-animal-facts/

# 3 – Remember…

 

# 4 – I have mentioned the Living Clay Company and their free Live Well tele-seminars in previous EME posts, but I just checked out the archive for the March 13th presentation and the transcript seemed to fit nicely with Tip # 3. It’s all about self-actualization and features quotes from Abraham and Conversations With God, a list of Maslow’s self-actualizing characteristics, and more…..

# 5 – And from Abe….

Every single person on the planet and every single Consciousness in the Universe has the same experience of being here and having a desire to be there. In other words, it is the promise of this eternal Universe. You’re always, always, always going to be on your way to something more – always. And when you relax and accept that, and stop beating up on yourself for not being someplace that you’re not, and instead, start embracing where you are while you keep your eye on where you’re going – now life becomes really, really, really fun.—Abraham
