Thought first, doggie housing :-), 528 Hz track, derailment, good advice


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – A good reminder I got recently in my inbox from Notes from the Universe…..

In the jungles of time and space, it’s wise to remember that the best hope one has for thriving among the seen, the known, and the manifested, comes from playing off the unseen, the unknown, and the not yet manifested.

Whatever you want, Zirah, go there in thought first, and go there often.

The Universe

p. s. Zirah, you are pure spirit, and spirit is pure source.

 

# 2 – Something for you animal lovers sure to make you smile….

 

 

# 3 – A good technique to develop for living in the now and also realizing when you’ve been “derailed” from your inner peace…..

http://www.thesacredscience.com/a-powerful-habit-i-learned-from-a-shaman/

 

# 4 – Good advice!

 

# 5 – From Rob Brezsny’s newsletter…..

15% REBELLIOUS RAGE, 85% COMPASSION AND CELEBRATION

Tending to my sanity and being in compassionate service to the world require me to be in a chronic state of rebellion.

But here’s an important caveat: While the rebellion can and should be partially fueled by anger at the consensual mass hallucination that’s mistakenly referred to as “reality,” it must be primarily motivated by love and joy and the desire to bestow blessings.

A healthy proportion, at least for me, seems to be 15% rage, indignation, and complaint, and 85% compassion, celebration, and lust for life.

# 7 – In a previous post I mentioned what I thought was a great musical resource. ….4 hrs of free ambient sounds/music by Moby. Here’s what I think is another great find….wonderful to play in the background to set the energy for your home or work environment, or during meditation. It’s an 8 hr long track using the 528 Hz solfeggio tone, known as The Miracle Tone and Love Frequency….

# 2 – Here’s what I think is a great resource……

Free download of 4 hrs (11 tracks) worth of music and ambient sounds (no vocals or drums) created by the gifted artist Moby. He originally created the music for himself over several years and then recently decided to make it available to everyone. Great background music for yoga, meditation, sleep or whenever you want some soothing, healing vibes playing in your environment:

(If you want to listen to the whole 4 hours on YouTube and don’t mind a 14 second ad at the beginning, you can go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XThua40bAss)

 

# 3 – Ummm, yes, nothing like feeling so comfortable with yourself and someone else that there’s no need for words….

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2017/03/01/free-cleanse-and-detox-workshop-plus-video-series-on-heart-health-and-acupressure/

 

# 7 – Ah, the ole flawed premise catch-22. Another good one from Abe…..

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

“Feedforward,” vision, plant love, blessings, the election, Jeffrey Allan, and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – This is a fairly long read, but interesting, insightful article by Marshall Goldsmith about giving “feedforward,” instead of feedback. Something possibly every counselor, coach, teacher, business owner, parent….really just about anyone….should read….

Providing feedback has long been considered to be an essential skill for leaders. As they strive to achieve the goals of the organization, employees need to know how they are doing. They need to know if their performance is in line with what their leaders expect. They need to learn what they have done well and what they need to change. Traditionally, this information has been communicated in the form of “downward feedback” from leaders to their employees. Just as employees need feedback from leaders, leaders can benefit from feedback from their employees. Employees can provide useful input on the effectiveness of procedures and processes and as well as input to managers on their leadership effectiveness. This “upward feedback” has become increasingly common with the advent of 360 degree multi-rater assessments.

But there is a fundamental problem with all types of feedback: it focuses on the past, on what has already occurred—not on the infinite variety of opportunities that can happen in the future. As such, feedback can be limited and static, as opposed to expansive and dynamic.

Over the past several years, I have observed more than thirty thousand leaders as they participated in a fascinating experiential exercise. In the exercise, participants are each asked to play two roles. In one role, they are asked provide feedforward —that is, to give someone else suggestions for the future and help as much as they can. In the second role, they are asked to accept feedforward—that is, to listen to the suggestions for the future and learn as much as they can. The exercise typically lasts for 10-15 minutes, and the average participant has 6-7 dialogue sessions.

Read the rest of the article and why feedforward generally works so much better than feedback: http://www.marshallgoldsmith.com/articles/try-feedforward-instead-feedback/

 

# 2 – A lovely picture and text from my blogging buddy Sarah Hughes, who has a big heart, immense love for Nature, and a real eye with the camera. You may want to check out her A Wildflower’s Melody posts whenever you need a bright spot in your day….

Wildflowers in the woods at Allerton Park, April 16, 2016.

When I count my blessings,

One of them is you.

May joy light your way,

And love fill your heart.

 

# 3 – Oh, I absolutely love this that was part of a newsletter from Rob Brezsny….

May a good vision catch me

May a benevolent vision take hold of me, and move me

May a deep and full vision come over me, and burst open around me

May a luminous vision inform me, enfold me.

May I awaken into the story that surrounds,

May I awaken into the beautiful story.

May the wondrous story find me;

May the wildness that makes beauty arise between two lovers

arise beautifully between my body and the body of this land,

between my flesh and the flesh of this earth,

here and now,

on this day,

May I taste something sacred.

—David Abram

 

# 4 – Wonderful image and text…..

With life as short as a half taken breath,
don’t plant anything but Love. ~ Rumi

# 5 – Regardless of who you voted for in the presidential election or how you feel about the results, I think this message I got from James Tyman is something everyone can benefit from…….

Don’t get me wrong…this is not the outcome I was hoping from. But that’s not the point, is it? My happiness does not depend on anything happening out there but rather, within my own heart. That’s where the miracle unfolds, and if we’re willing to accept everything, no matter how far it is from what we wanted to happen, then happiness becomes a constant state. I AM Happy NO MATTER WHAT.

I spent the morning praying for Donald Trump, not cursing him. Yes, of course I was shocked and dismayed, but several days ago I asked thousands of people to pray for the “highest good” to be done in this election. Part of that involves me letting go of what I think needs to happen and trusting what actually is happening. It’s impossible for me to know what humanity needs to evolve into love, but I am willing to play my role NO MATTER WHAT. That’s the key – to commit to love regardless of the direction we seem to be heading.

I invite you to join me in this brave new life. A friend of mine used to say: “Ask for what you want, accept what you get, and work on the difference.” I did not vote for Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean I have to fall into despair. You are needed more than ever now! If you feel sad or disheartened, that’s okay, but do what you have to do to move through those feelings back into love. That’s the only place the real work can be done. — James Twyman

 

# 6 – This free masterclass w/ Jeffrey Allan is only going to be available thru Monday. I highly recommend signing up for it. Have taken his Duality training and it was some of the best money I’ve ever spent. This free class he’s offering now is a lead-in to his new course on Unlocking Transcendence and talks about using your inner compass to navigate the energy world in a way that guarantees success in the physical world . Cool! You can find out more here.

 

# 7 – And a gentle reminder from Abraham…..

You don’t have to work at being in the high vibration that is natural to you, because it is natural to you. But you do have to stop holding the thoughts that cause you to lower your vibration. It’s a matter of no longer giving your attention to things that don’t allow your cork to float or don’t allow you to vibrate in harmony with who you really are.–Abraham

TIPS FOR TODAY: 

 

# 1 – Good reminder….

 

# 2 – With all the fear and anxiety this particular presidential election has caused/is causing, some of you may be guided to be part of this event to help shift the energies….

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2016/11/06/dealing-with-the-time-change-plus-free-health-resources/

 

# 4 – Maybe being a quitter is sometimes a good thing. :-)

 

# 5 – Hmm, I don’t remember seeing this before. Seriously though, a good reminder…….

The more you say “I don’t remember,” the more you cannot remember. You cannot find something that’s “lost”. When you’ve decided that it’s lost, when it’s lost to you, it is lost. The Universe could not possibly show it to you. –Abraham

And a good one from a book by Gregg Braden….

“At this time, fear is the single pattern of interference known to prevent whole earth heart brain cell resonance. Stated another way, fear is the emotion that keeps you separate from your world, from those that you love, from feeling good about yourself, from creation and ultimately, your creator…..fear, without the judgment of the ‘goodness’ or ‘badness’ of fear, simply represents a quality of thought and emotion that discourages our relationship to creation.”—Walking Between the Worlds

Freedom, privilege, New Moon, breathe in, What’s New, and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Sad, but true….

“Faced with a freedom that is absolute, a freedom that leaves no room for separation from the whole, most people will compulsively contract back into a condition of struggle where they can maintain a familiar sense of self. This means that when actually given the chance, most people will choose to struggle and remain separate, rather than to face the austerity of a freedom that shatters any sense of separateness. It is only when you desire to be free more than you desire the security of a familiar sense of self that you spontaneously move into a freedom that is final and beyond struggle.” ~ Adyashanti

The Impact of Awakening

# 2 – I love some of the articles at Moon Circles about astrological events and I especially like this one about the Full Moon Sat night/Sun morning (depending on where you live), not only because it gives insight into certain things going on right now in the outer world, but also focuses on the emotion/energy of anger….something that is often under-appreciated, misunderstood, misused and/or repressed/subjugated. All the anger and viciousness coming out in the political campaign, in the opponents, their followers and the American people in general (myself included) is a great example of what happens when anger has been repressed, denied or gone unrecognized for yrs and then comes spewing out in all directions……

“The path to action is not so straightforward at this New Moon, though. Mars – Aries’ ruling planet – is moving toward a rendezvous with Pluto in Capricorn, with this volatile combination in a powerful t-square to the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Libra, and the Moon and Uranus in Aries. It’s no wonder the U.S. presidential election has devolved into an unholy mixture of pissiness and physical intimidation. Half the sky is at war with the other half.

But look deep beneath the surface of fear and frustration, and you may be able to locate Capricorn’s voice of cool pragmatism. “Go ahead and take action,” Capricorn advises, “But first, cool off and make a plan.”

# 3 – Lovely image and text from Peace Compassion Love on Facebook…..
The privilege of a lifetime
is to become who you truly are ~ C.G. Jung

# 4 – From Tama Kieves……

tama-kieves

Today I breathe out everything I think I should be.
I breathe in everything I am meant to be.
I let go of false, invalidating conditioning.
I breathe in the certain.
My real power comes when I am my real self.
Today, I breathe out everything I think I should be. I breathe in everything I am.

# 5 – Check out Evolution Made Easier’s What’s New page for information about upcoming free events, free e-books on essential oils, DIY recipes, exercise and more, exciting new software for reprogramming your subconscious, plus other news….

# 6 – And a good reminder from Abraham…..

The Universe is abundant with everything that you want. It’s not testing you. It’s benevolently providing for you. But you are the orchestrater. You are the definer, and you do it through your joyous anticipation. If there is an emotion that you are wanting to foster, that would serve you very, very well, it is positive expectation. It is excited anticipation. –Abraham

Stress, artist, dysfunctional patterns, laughter, Pinktober, inner peace series, and some Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Good insight and stimulation from Jeff Foster…..

“RELAX, YOU ARE NOT THE DOER”

What is stress?

Stress is the tension between this moment and your mental image of how this moment ‘should be’.

Stress is your narrow focus on a mental list of ‘things to do’, the imaginary burden of ‘all the things that haven’t been done yet’.

Stress always involves future-thinking, a forgetting of your true Ground – this moment, here, now.

When your focus shifts from what is NOT present, to what IS present, from ‘lack’ to what is abundantly here, and instead of trying to complete a list of a thousand things, you simply do the next thing, the one thing that presents itself now, with your full attention and passion and presence, lists get completed effortlessly – and even if they don’t, creative solutions are found, without stress.

Relax. You are not the doer.

– Jeff Foster

 

# 2 – Lovely image and stimulating text from Adyashanti…..

“Although they can seem numberless and at times overwhelming, dysfunctional emotional patterns are in the end illusions that we have been taught. And whatever we can learn, we can unlearn.”

~ Adyashanti, “The Way of Liberating Insight” Study Course

 

# 3 – An excerpt from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter and book Pronoia…..

Even if you don’t call yourself an artist, you have the potential to be a dynamic creator who is always hatching new plans, coming up with fresh ideas, and shifting your approach to everything you do as you adjust to life’s ceaseless invitation to change.

It’s to this part of you‚ the restless, inventive spirit‚ that I address the following: Unleash yourself! Don’t be satisfied with the world the way it is; don’t sit back passively and blankly complain about the dead weight of the mediocre status quo.

Instead, call on your curiosity and charisma and expressiveness and lust for life as you tinker with and rebuild everything you see so that it’s in greater harmony with the laws of love and more hospitable to your soul’s code.

 

# 4 – Oh, I love this one that a friend shared on Facebook….

Universe, show me today how it would be if every cell of my body embodies the energy of laughter? – Nila Nimi Nirmal Raju

 

# 5 – Check out the latest at Self-help Health…..

# 6 – Deepak Chopra is offering another one of his 21-day meditation series starting Oct 31st. The focus of this series is on cultivating inner peace (boy, how timely is that?!). I’ve participated in almost all the previous events, and the last two he did were my faves, so I have high hopes for this one. Just listening to his soothing, centering voice is enough to put me in meditation mode, and he always provides such gems of insight and wisdom…….

https://chopracentermeditation.com

 

# 7 – And some Abe to end on……

When you focus upon lack in an attitude of complaining, you establish a vibrational point of attraction that then gives you access only to more thoughts of complaint. Your deliberate effort to tell a new story will establish a new pattern of thought, providing you with a new point of attraction from your present, about your past, and into your future. The simple effort of looking for positive aspects will set a new vibrational tone that will begin the immediate attraction of thoughts, people, circumstances, and things that are pleasing to you. — Abraham

Purpose, free health events, Meditation 2.0, life and death, perception


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – A good one from Eckhart Tolle…..

 

# 2 – Check out the latest post at Self-help Health for a number of free events, including Radical Beauty from Deepak Chopra and The Detox Project from Health Talks On-line…..

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2016/09/12/radical-beauty-m…upressure-points/

 

# 3 – And speaking of free events, you may want to sign up for this one being offered by Craig Hamilton, but you’ll need to hurry since it happens tomorrow…..

By now, you’ve probably tried meditation practice in the hope that it might bring you closer to the awakening you’ve sensed is possible.

But you’ve probably also noticed that although meditation can help us become calmer, more centered and less reactive, it rarely leads to the depth of spiritual awakening we’ve tasted in our most profound moments.

If that’s been your experience, too, I want to invite you to a free online seminar I’m offering to share a radical new approach to meditation that goes beyond the limitations of most meditation practices, and can even give us direct and consistent access to awakened consciousness:

Meditation 2.0 – The Miracle of Direct Awakening

In this 75-minute webinar, I’m going to share the surprising truth I’ve learned in three decades of meditation research–and the unexpected discovery that is revolutionizing the way I teach spiritual practice and awakening.

Indeed, the practice of “direct awakening” I’m going to be introducing is such a radical departure from the meditation most of us have been taught, that it’s really more accurate to think of it as an evolution of meditation. Which is why I’m calling it Meditation 2.0.

 

# 4 – Oh wow, very short, but lots to think about here….

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” – William Blake

 

# 5 – I found this video on life and death so profound and evocative. FYI, you may need to have a hanky at the ready…..

 

Enjoy!
