# 3 – From the recent free 21-day meditation series offered by Deepak and Oprah…..

The mind game consists of the tricks your mind plays on you, making you see reality according to old memories, fears, wounds, prejudices, outworn beliefs, second-hand opinions, and early conditioning. When you are aware your mind is filtering your reality based on the past, you can change it with that awareness. In fact, awareness is the change.” — Deepak Chopra

 

# 4 – Trippy and cool. Life is a vortex, not just rotation. What a universe! They say that all the plants and life forms here are based on spirals, but who thought that the sun was part of that, too?! Makes sense though.

 

 

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

In his book *Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships,* psychotherapist John Welwood writes, “Psychological work focuses more on what has gone wrong: how we have been wounded in our relations with others and how to go about addressing that.

“Spiritual work focuses more on what is intrinsically right: how we have infinite resources at the core of our nature that we can cultivate in order to live more expansively. If psychological work thins the clouds, spiritual work invokes the sun.”

Also from his newsletter….

“Pain motivates you to grow? OK. But maybe you don’t need as much of that stuff as you used to. Maybe you could actually start learning more and more from — gasp! — pleasurable experiences.”

 

# 6 – Wow, amazing and powerful experience to listen to this…..

# 7 – And a good one to end on…..

 

 

Enjoy!

Nature, loving self, Love, painting flowers, yoga, weight loss, and more, and Abe on healing


 

I haven’t been doing much posting here lately…….so many other things calling for my attention. But I did want to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2018 and provide a little inspiration to get the new year off to a good start.  Please pardon the cramped spacing. Having techno problems. :-) Happy 2018!

 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 –

Image may contain: text, nature and outdoor

 

# 2 – Wisdom from Louise Hay…..

“When people come to me with a problem, I don’t care what it is – poor health, lack of money, unfulfilling relationships, or stifled creativity – there is only one thing I ever work on, and that is LOVING THE SELF.
I find that when we really love and accept and APPROVE OF OURSELVES EXACTLY AS WE ARE, then everything in life works.”
Louise Hay, “You Can Heal Your Life”
 –
# 3 – Oh I love this quote and image! It’s hard to outdo Rumi!
Image may contain: sky, cloud, bridge, ocean and outdoor
 –
# 4 – A sweet, inspiring story about how we all can find our own particular way of creating a better world….
 –
My hero! See how this one pilot is changing so many lives:
# 5 – And check out the latest at Self-help Health for some great ways to start off 2018, including a free yoga series. several short at-home workout routines, products to help with weight management and fat loss and more!
# 6 – And some stimulation from Abe to end on….

True healers know that wellness is the order of the day, so they do not allow themselves, even for a moment, to see anything other than that. So, the power of the healer is in the power to influence the one who needs to be healed into a vibration that allows the healing that they are summoning, (that they could get, even without the healer, but they can get faster with a healer’s influence). — Abraham

Mother Nature, soul, enlightened, have-its, and the Dalai Lama


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Ah, yes, Mother Nature has a way of lightening my mood….

Image may contain: flower, text, outdoor and nature

 

# 2 – I love this, especially the last 3 sentences…..

Image may contain: text

 

# 3 – And humor always goes a long way in making the evolutionary process easier….:-)

Image may contain: 6 people

 

# 4 – From Dr. Sue Morter…..reminds me of what Abe is always saying….

Habits or Have-Its?

Which are you living from? Your habits or your “have-its?”

When we wish, dream or desire, we tend to separate ourselves from that which we dream of. When we create from the energy of “someday” or “down the road” we actually create the energy of lack, missing and void. WE create the lack without even knowing it. It’s how we were raised, it’s all we know – it’s just a HABIT. WE have what we have because of what we HAB!

Have something different, by HAVING IT ENERGETICALLY first. Create the vibration of what it would feel like to HAVE it, and you shall.

 

# 5 – And some wisdom and insight from the Dalai Lama to end on…..

At the end of the talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, “Why didn’t you fight back against the Chinese?” The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, “Well, war is obsolete, you know.” Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, “Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back… but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you.”

Hugs, seeing, free affirmations MP3, innocent mistake, free educational resources, uplifting video, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Have you had your hug(s) today?

 

 

# 2 – Love this one….

 

 

# 3 – Something free you may want to check out….an MP3 of Positive Self-esteem Affirmations that you can play in the background as you go about your day….

https://www.trinityaffirmations.com/gift/free-self-esteem-positive-affirmations-mp3

 

 

# 4 – A friend shared this one with me recently. Very thought-provoking and insightful....

“The innocent mistake that keeps us caught in our own particular style of ignorance, unkindness, and shut-downness is that we are never encouraged to see clearly what is, with gentleness. Instead, there’s a kind of basic misunderstanding that we should try to be better than we already are, that we should try to improve ourselves, that we should try to get away from painful things, and that if we could just learn how to get away from the painful things, then we would be happy.” – Pema Chodron

 

 

# 5 – This seems like a great resource to know about from I Heart (Love) Intelligence….40 websites that offer all sorts of educational courses, scientific lessons, video lectures on a variety of topics, etc. 

http://www.iheartintelligence.com/2014/01/18/beat-the-system-40-free-educational-websites/

 

 

# 6 – And I can’t remember if I’ve shared this before, but it’s so uplifting and restores your faith in humanity to see a montage of all these rescues….

 

 

 

# 7 – And food for thought from Abe…

When you are feeling the discomfort from seeing other people in a lackful or needy situation, and you decide to help them from your place of discomfort, no lasting value ever occurs, for two important reasons: first, you are not in alignment with the Energy of your Source, and so you have no real value to give; and second, your attention to their need only amplifies their need.

Of course, it is a wonderful thing to help others, but you must do it from your position of strength and alignment, which means you must be in alignment with their success as you offer assistance, and not in alignment with their problem.

When your awareness of their situation makes you uncomfortable and you offer help to make them feel better and to make yourself feel better, you are not in the Vortex and you are not helping. When you feel an inspired eagerness to offer something because you want to participate in their happy, successful process, your attention to their success harmonizes with the point of view of your Source; and the infinite resources of the Universe are at your disposal. And that does help.–Abraham

Being yourself, surround yourself, love yourself, fall colors, free health series, and intuition


TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Good one!

 

# 2 – I came across this recently on Facebook and loved the words…..a beautiful reminder from Indian spiritual teacher Sri Nisargadatta. Seemed to fit nicely with Tips # 1 & #3…..

“All you need is already within you, only you must approach your self with reverence and love. Self-condemnation and self-distrust are grievous errors. Your constant flight from pain and search for pleasure is a sign of love you bear for your self; all I plead with you is this: make love of your self perfect. Deny yourself nothing – give your self infinity and eternity and discover that you do not need them; you are beyond.”

 

# 3 – Love this image and text…

 

# 4 – Wow, Mother Nature doing her fall thing….

http://www.viralnova.com/autumn-before-and-after/

 

# 5 – Two great-sounding free health series starting tomorrow, and they’re FREE….

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2014/10/12/wellness-family-summit-quest-for-the-cures-continues/

 

# 6 – An thought-provoking post on following your intuition/inner guidance by Edward Mills of The Abundant Mystic…..

Take this exit.”

“Huh?”

“Take this exit.”

“Why? You know this way takes at least 5-minutes longer!”

“Take this exit.”

It wasn’t exactly a conversation. Not as if someone was sitting in the car next to me, navigating.

More like a feeling or a knowing sense that came from deep within me.

It was 1997 and I was about 6-months into a 2-year Intuition Medicine Certification training and my inner guidance was definitely ramping up.

But my previously dominant analytical mind was still mostly in charge… and definitely wanting to keep it that way!

IT decided that it made absolutely no LOGICAL sense to take the route home that would be 5-minutes longer.

So we stayed on the freeway.

Well, wouldn’t you know it… there was an accident on the freeway! And our 5-minute shorter drive home ended up taking 25-minutes LONGER!

The longer we sat in that traffic jam the more I could sense my analytical mind slinking back into the corner.

Now, the cool thing is that the intuitive mind doesn’t go around saying “I told you so!” Unlike my analytical mind which is very adept – and loud – at pointing out when it has made the “right” decision.

No, the intuitive mind does not toot its own horn. It offers guidance quietly and consistently and is content whether you follow that guidance or not.

So experiences such as this one were crucial at that time in my intuitive development.

You see, if I had followed my intuitive guidance and gone the way it suggested I never would have “known” that my intuition was accurate. My analytical mind would have poo-pooed the decision, insisting that we had just wasted 5 entire minutes going the “wrong” way.

But because I didn’t follow my intuitive guidance we received crystal clear confirmation that the guidance was accurate and would have actually saved us 20-minutes!

This is a very important stage in almost everyone’s awakening journey.

Very few people – at least that I’ve met – have the ability to blindly trust their intuitive guidance.

Most of us require some kind of validation. That’s where these experiences of NOT following your guidance are very helpful.

Now, hopefully, you can start to trust your intuition after a few “gentle” validations – like getting stuck in traffic for a few extra minutes.

Some of us “hard cases” – yes I was one of them! – may require a few stronger validations. I had many of these experiences – not all of them gentle! – during that period when the balance of power within me was shifting from analytical to intuitive!

Where are you on this journey of awakening to your intuition?

How often do you “hear” your inner guidance?

Do you trust your inner guidance consistently or do you question it?

Do you act on that inner guidance all the time, sometimes, only when it “makes sense” or never?

Do YOU have any intuitive “validation” stories you can share… you know times when you got very clear inner guidance to do one thing and went ahead and did another?

There are no right answers here. But it can be very helpful to take the pulse of your relationship with your intuition.

 

Enjoy!

Judge nothing, Misguided Monk, peace, more listening, Your Hidden Riches, and Abraham


PICK OF THE DAY:

Love the part about us and the common potato :-)

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 -Short and sweet and it fits well with the pick of the day!

 

# 2 – Also short and sweet….a video titled The Misguided Monk.….

 

# 3 – Ah so….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

# 4 – A thought-provoking post from Tama Kieves along the lines of “less doing, more being”….

The Universe Wants to Talk to You: Do You Want to Listen?

The ego has a thousand goals. Are they really yours?

The fast-track Western world reveres productivity, measured by what we “get done.” But I invite you to consider becoming undone, letting go of ill-fitting self-definitions, freeing yourself from beliefs and patterns, becoming naked, available, and present to your present life. The Universe wants to talk to you. Do you want to listen?

Sometimes you have to stop scoring points in the life you have in order to win at the life you desire.  A Course in Miracles teaches, that “the vision of one world will cost you the vision of another.” Albert Einstein said the same thing: “You cannot solve the problem at the level of the problem.” Are you so busy maintaining the structures of your existing life, that you can’t hear when Great Love is calling your name?

We don’t always realize what we’re not getting done by getting things done.

The other day, I decided to give myself a mini-retreat on my back porch. I’d hurt my neck so I thought maybe I should drop my tasks and spend the day listening to my body and myself. Immediately I heard a perky voice within dictating glamorous, acceptable ways to relax. Maybe you should go to a spa and get a hot stone massage. Hey, you could read that new book about scaling your business. Since you’re not on the computer today, why not organize your meditation space? Even in the domain of my time off, I had a checklist waiting to devour me. I spent the day in a ratty tee shirt instead, “doing nothing,” being, listening, and receiving. It was one of the most productive days I’ve had in a while.

Read the rest of the post here: http://tamakieves-mojo-message.viprespond.com/June2014

 

# 5 – Here’s an offer I took advantage of and thought you may want to also. It’s an opportunity to receive a free copy of the upcoming book Your Hidden Riches: Unleashing the Power of Ritual to Create a Life of Meaning & Purpose (a $25 value) by Janet and Chris Attwood, best-selling authors of The Passion Test. You do need to cover postage though….$6.95 in the US, $19.95 international.

The book release isn’t until Oct. 21st, but there are several free items you receive right away….access to Janet’s “I Want for You What You Want for You” Meditations on Love program,  as well as access to a moving video created last year describing prophecies from ancient cultures about our current times called, “An Ancient Message for Modern Times.” Then in September you’ll receive Janet’s newest ebook, “Maro Up! A Japanese Billionaire’s Secret to Success” written with the ‘Warren Buffet’ of Japan, Wahei Takeda. So there’s stuff to keep you busy while you wait for the official release of Your Hidden Riches, which has already gotten advance praise from the likes of Don Miguel Ruiz, Jack Canfield, Dr. Daniel Amen and Mary Morrissey. You can sign up for your free copy here.

 

# 6 – This reminds me of how they say we try to make God into our image, instead of the other way around….

When that which is god — or that which is that which man wants to call “God” — is being understood by man, man has to translate it into the format he understands. But this Energy, this Source that man is giving the label of “God”, cannot be quantified in anything that man understands. And as man attempts to do it, the distortions are enormous.—Abraham
