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Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, “Well, war is obsolete, you know.”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

Present moment, anger, photo therapy, free Mind Video, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – 

 

# 2 – Some stimulation on the subject of anger…..

Anger Is Good by Colin Tipping of Radical Forgiveness

Anger scares people. Men especially are frightened of it because they fear they might lose control and hurt someone if they allow themselves to really feel it.

David Hawkins, MD., PhD., the author of Power vs Force, put anger fairly high on the list of his Scale of Consciousness. He says that, so long as it can be given expression and is not repressed, it is good because it spurs into us action. It is a creative emotion.

At the same time, it can cause great damage if not properly controlled and managed. Knowing how to control one’s anger without denying it or suppressing it is, therefore, of paramount importance.

Radical Forgiveness can help.

The best working definition of an emotion is a thought attached to a feeling. Which comes first depends on the type of stimulus, but my guess is that in most cases it is the thought that causes the chemical reactions in the body that we register as the feeling.

The emotion is the result of cause and effect. The thoughts are the cause and the feelings are the effect.

The feelings themselves happen automatically and are beyond our control. What we do have dominion over, however, since they are the cause, are our thoughts.

This means the key to managing our emotions is to consciously monitor what passes through our mind. Then, be open to thinking in ways that will.

# 3 – And this fit nicely with Tip # 2…..

Anger is a river. It wants to be released into the vaster ocean. It wants to move naturally. When we repress it with premature forgiveness, block it with false positivity, repress it in the name of pseudo-peace, we just dam(n) our natural flow. The river then turns inward, against the self, or explodes outwardly, against innocents. Better we express it when it is in our awareness- not in a way that is destructive to humanity- but in a way that is authentic and that restores the integrity of our being. Anger isn’t the enemy. Misplaced anger is. Let the river flow.– Jeff Brown

 

# 4 – Great idea….Check out Patricia’s Photo Play Therapy….pictures to “get your mind off stress and focused more on joy.”

 

# 5 – Something free from Mindvideos.com you might be interested in. I haven’t watched the video yet myself, but plan to over the weekend…..

Mind Videos is offering access to a full length “subliminal manifestation video” called “Going Deep.” This video will open up your mind and start improving your life by slowly altering your subconscious… and it’s yours absolutely FREE.

Here is some information about what goes into these videos:

1. HIGH DEFINITION THEMED VIDEO IMAGERY
Visualization is a proven process that involves using powerful images, thoughts and emotions to attract what you most desire. It is imperative to tie the visualizations with an emotional state to truly affect your subconscious and these videos use sequences related to the desired outcome to ensure the right state of mind and right emotional connection.

2. MEDITATIVE AUDIO SOUNDTRACK WITH 3D SPATIAL EFFECTS
All Empowered Mind Videos feature a 3D spatial soundtrack that will induce a meditative state. It is absolutely vital that your mind is not distracted in order for the visual and audio cues to work.

3. BRAINWAVE ENTRAINMENT THROUGH BINAURAL BEATS
Binaural beats are part of the brainwave entrainment phenomenon and were first discovered in the mid 1800’s. These tones work directly on the frequency levels of your brainwaves. 

4. SUBLIMINAL COMMANDS (SPOKEN & VISUAL)
Subliminal commands are suggestions delivered to you from outside of your consciousness. Although similar to affirmations, subliminal commands are spoken to you, written in the third person and are not for you to repeat aloud to yourself. Subliminal commands are a more effective format when combined with meditative audio and video.

You can sign up to access the free Mind Video here.

 

# 6 – And from Abe….

There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance… and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you. This Stream is as abundant as your ideas allow it to be.—Abraham

Struggle, less thinking, Letting Go e-book, Living In Oneness, and Abraham


 TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 –  An insightful article from Dr. Robert Anthony on struggle….

We are conditioned to believe that life is supposed to be hard. It
was designed to struggle. Struggle means you are courageous
and strong.

Struggle is like taking a cross country trip in your car with the
emergency brake on. You may get there, but you are burned out at
the end, and you missed most of the fun sights on the way.

As it turns out, struggle is highly overrated.

We hear inspirational stories about people who have “struggled
against all odds” to become successful. How often do we hear
positive things about the people who are successful because they
DO NOT struggle?

Struggle is life’s treadmill.

The need to struggle and effort to get what we want is an illusion,
and like all other illusions (or assumptions) by their very nature
they keep us from seeing the truth that’s right before us.

Struggle is trying to rearrange the world so that it aligns with
the way you think it should be. It is the greatest source of
unhappiness in our world today. It happens when you focus on what
you perceive you don’t have, instead of embracing what you do have.

We live in a time of striking contrasts. There is tremendous
prosperity for some and outrageous poverty for others. We have so
much available to us, yet we continue to strive for more and more.

So what’s going on? We must change our paradigm and see abundance
as a mind set. Abundance is waking up to the reality that you are
already the person you yearn to become and that you already have
everything you need in this moment.

The denial or more accurately the resistance to who you really are
is what keeps you struggling. Abundance is about falling in love
with WHOM and WHERE you are. It is focusing on all that you have
and not losing yourself in all that you don’t have. In the end it
is this thought that allows you to create anything you desire.

Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress – IF YOU LOOK FOR IT!  No matter how
large or small, make note of it. It will only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.

 

# 2 – And I’ve featured this before, but I really like it and it is from Dr. Anthony and goes so well with his article in Tip # 1.  Supposedly it’s one of his favorite affirmations….

With that affirmation, say to yourself, “The universe is
yielding to me. Good things are lined up for me. All good things
come to me. There is not a reason in the world for me to worry.
When I worry it is nothing more than old patterns of thought that
have nothing to do with my ability to create what I desire. I have
nothing to worry about.  Everything comes to me at the right time
in the right way. I figure it out as I go.  I don’t need to know,
I figure it out as I go”.

# 3 – And this seemed to fit perfectly with # 2….

 

# 4 – I haven’t checked this out myself yet, but a friend e-mailed me about it and I thought I would pass along the tip…

 

The Letting Go Ebook, Free

Posted: 30 Apr 2014 07:11 AM PDT

By Leo Babauta

Today marks 41 years of wonderful life that I’ve lived, and as a birthday present to all of you, I’m publishing a free ebook: The One Skill: How Mastering the Art of Letting Go Will Change Your Life.

Last year I started a tradition of giving people gifts on my birthday, to celebrate the fact of being alive, and my gratitude for those in my life — I published the Little Book of Contentment for free a year ago.

This year I continue the tradition with my new ebook on letting go: The One Skill.

It’s about learning the skill of letting go, and how that will help you with every problem in your life. From stress to procrastination to habit change to loss and much more.

It’s an amazing skill, and the better I get at it, the better I am at life, the happier I am.

You can download the book for free here: The One Skill ebook (pdf).

I’ve also exported it as an epub (download) but not tested it yet. And here’s the mobi file for Kindle & other ebook readers (thanksDaniel Pavey!).

 

#5 – And here’s a free event from Humanity’s Team University to check out….

Living In Oneness Summit

Wednesday, May 7 to Sunday, May 18
Multiple Programs Each Day

If Oneness is Ultimate Reality, let’s
Learn it, Live it & Love it in All Parts of Our Life

Receive a Oneness eBook when you register!


The Living in Oneness Summit  is just around the corner and free of charge. 

It is our destiny to live this way but rather than take the arduous path why not take a shortcut? The problem in taking a shortcut is that different authors and speakers connect with different audiences. There is no single author or wisdom source who speaks to everyone. This is why the Living in Oneness Summit has reached out to over 24 of the most respected authors and wisdom sources we know to be part of the 2014 program. Each brings different wisdom but each is respected as an authority on living in Oneness in one or more parts of our life. Some are well known and others you will be so grateful you are meeting for the first time.

Hear Evolutionary Leaders Neale Donald Walsch, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Bruce Lipton, James O’Dea, Nina Meyerhof, and Barbara Fields, among the 35 inspiring speakers who are part of this year’s program.

See the entire program and list of speakers! 

 

# 6 – And from Abraham….

Source never wields vengeance or offers punishment, for Source understands you are valuable; you are worthy; you are blessed. Source understands that you never get it done and you cannot get it wrong, and that even when you stand in a place that currently feels wrong, ultimately you will return to what feels right. You can return now to what feels right with an adjustment of your thought process and an adjustment of your vibration and a changing of your point of attraction and a finally letting in of the Well-Being that is flowing to you always.—Abraham
