Results from participating in Alania Starhawk’s Creative Alchemy online class

After moving from the west coast of Florida to the east coast, I’d thought I was going to miss participating and joining with many of the groups I’d become so engaged with!

Thus, I was so excited when Alania Starhawk offered a webinar type of online 4-week class. I jumped at the opportunity to participate!

I love learning via tele-call series and online programs, and Alania’s class was aWEsOMe! I was always so eager to connect each Tuesday evening at 7pm–a perfect time for me!

I really enjoyed the Webinar Ninja online platform and that there was plenty of space to make notes in the chat window, while learning in this way.

As you see, I was able to take screen captures of the slides that Alania presented to include the chat text I shared, (using my iPhone), to save for my future reference. As well, each call was recorded and Alania shared the link with each of the attendees via email, so we can listen to the calls again and again.

When I began the course, I’d been finishing up a book, which I’d been working on (off and on) for 13 years. I had desired to complete it a couple of years ago, but that didn’t happen. Awhile later, I’d wanted to finish it last year, and then I started a new job and three days later, my mother passed.

By December of 2017, I’d decided I would set a date to wrap up the book (no matter how “complete” I thought it was), by May 2018–before going to New Hampshire for the month. Yet, the book languished on the computer with many notes on my iPhone for it, that I needed to verify via books and online sources.

When I signed up for Creative Alchemy I had an idea that I would use whatever energy I felt from the class, and whatever enthusiasm it sparked, I’d direct it toward finishing the book.

I’m ecstatic to tell you all, that yes, it worked! I completed the manuscript of the book on 8/6/2018, right before the Lion’s Gate date of 8/8! And I didn’t even know what the Lion’s Gate was!

Thus, the following are what I learned from Alania’s Creative Alchemy course:

  • I became energized about my own personal power
  • I was lovingly reminded that we are ALL supported
  • As I scrutinized my book, I felt a very tangible PUSH to stay focused
  • I opened more in an extraordinary way to get the book to the finish line

Alania’s class gave me a nudging boost, or gentle push, yet all of this happened with ease–to get my book done. I know it sounds odd to say that, and may be hard to imagine, but it’s true. Several things just sort of moved out of the way, yet nothing was ignored–and like a kaleidoscope that creates a gorgeous design by allowing all of the bits to easily fall into place–all of the edits that I’d had noted to make and all of the citations were checked by the last day of our class.

I finally felt a sense of balance about having written a book of over 200 pages about one’s personal responsibility and options within the realm of holistic health and wellness.

The manuscript is in layout phase now, and I will write another article and press release when that part of the process is complete. So, stay tuned!

About Alania Starhawk

Alania is one of the most genuine, brilliant, and bright shining hearts I know! I trust her implicitly.

I realize that in the world of spiritual teachers, mentors, way showers, channelers, and so forth, some people have skeptical thoughts. I can assure you of Alania’s integrity.

I’ve written previously that I meditate to expand my energy and reach. I see myself as a voice and influence, connecting to my coworkers, friends, neighbors, local community, state, region, country, continent, and world. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. And I always want to honor this knowing.

If we’re in better shape emotionally, mentally, and physically, we can change the world! And why is that important? Because We Are All Connected!

What is a lie?

Depending upon the dictionary you use, when you look up the word “lie” and try to define it, you’ll find that it’s mostly referred to as some sort of deception, false impression, or intentionally untrue statement.

So, a lie then, is defined as the opposite of truth. Right? It’s something that’s untrue.
Or is it?
Is the lie the opposing viewpoint?
Is it a lie because it goes against what you KNOW, or perceive to be true?
Many years ago, I used to say that my ex could lie to me and tell me the sky was black, though I knew it was blue. And that he was so good at it, so convincing, he’d make me look at the sky again to be sure.
I used to get so angry (mad) when he, or anyone would lie to me! Grrr… what planet were they from? Why would they lie? To get what they wanted?
But now I wonder. What if a lie is really just another way of looking at something?
Let’s imagine we’re standing at a tree. A tree that is full of leaves.
The side of the tree you’re looking at has green leaves, so you make an assumption that all of the leaves of the tree are green. But, what if someone else is standing on the other side of the tree, and there are a few yellow or reddish colored leaves on that side.
Even if we care about the person standing over there, we might get defensive when our friend states they love the yellow leaves they’re seeing. We may disagree or argue our point, even without walking around to the other side!
So, how can we know for sure what colors the leaves are on the other side of the tree?
Like the yellow leaves on the other side of that tree, opposite from where you are standing, a lie is something someone else thinks they know.
They’ll defend “their truth” about yellow leaves until the cows come home!
But, you can’t see the yellow leaves, so you think they’re wrong, nuts, or crazy.
Instead, why not just allow the other person to have his or her understanding of it?
And what difference does any of it make anyway?
We don’t always have to be right after all? And if we do, then that’s our ego.
What if a lie is the other perspective that you are unable to understand?
Think about a conversation where someone says something that you believe is untrue. It makes you mad. You fight it. The anger about the lie becomes intense within you.
Where do you feel that anger?
How do you feel it?
Isn’t it bizarre that you can actually FEEL the weight, or density of the negative energy?

Ahh, there’s almost a substance to it.

Thus, emotion scribes energy to the cellophane (the invisible realm where energy is stored before/after it becomes matter).
What???
Now, I realize your head may have just exploded, but try to follow this:
Imagine that there’s a sheet of cellophane between you and the person you are having a heated conversation with.
When you allow their perception (their version of the truth) to upset you, you speak some charged words.
The energy from your words sticks in the cellophane.
The next time someone walks through that cellophane, especially a sensitive person (sensitive to energies), they FEEL that dense energy–almost like a heaviness in the air!
So, the next time someone lies to you, consider first, that they are only sharing their perspective with you. You may not agree. You may not like it.
When someone lies to you, especially if it’s about a really important subject, tell yourself that they are in a different reality. And FEEL if this lightens the weight of the lie.
Just as I no longer believe that a lie is wrong or bad, I also no longer believe there’s such a thing as false hope. For any hope at all, whether it is based on fact or fiction, is still hope.
Let’s assign truth and hope the number 1 and a lie and false hope the number 0.
1+0 = 1
Thus, we see that the even when we try to add something false to something true, we still have something true. It’s only our perception that is limited.
Remember that HOPE is the substance of things not yet seen. Not yet seen! Not real yet. Not actual yet.
So, let’s say someone tells you a lie about a topic that you don’t care much about. You can shrug it off easily, right?

However, when someone tells you a lie about love, about someone you love, or that they don’t love you, that lie drains you of energy, right?

Similar to a battery that only has enough power to keep it going, though not enough to start the engine, a lie about the existence of love pulls energy out of you.
Why?
Because WE are all LOVE in our core and anything that shuts down or restricts that love FEELS bad to us.
Perspectives. It’s all about perspectives and perception.
Check out these two images from the same kaleidoscope, that was simply turned a bit:
IMG_6905.jpgIMG_6934.jpg
How do each of these two statements make you feel?
I love that you make me laugh!
Versus
I love to laugh at you!
Pick up a kaleidoscope and peer into it, notice the myriad perspectives available to you. The fractals involved in the patterns created. And when, because you will, you cannot help to do so, move it the slightest bit the light will hit the items within it, and you’ll see different colors and patterns. For this is the way of the kaleidoscope. This is also the way of the interconnectedness of the universe.
I hope this helps to lighten you today, and step a bit lighter on the earth.

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

I love you.
You are enough.
You are worthy of love.
Namaste. OM
Note: This post is NOT about condoning lies or compulsive liars (certainly no one needs to stay with people who habitually act like that), it’s about feeling better, coming to terms, or forgiving someone when it occurs. Learn and move on. It’s all YOUR choice.

Book Review: Soul Explorer

Preface: Since my mother transitioned to the Great Beyond on June 8th, 2017, I’ve received many messages from her in the form of visiting animals, songs in my head, dreams, and visions when meditating or relaxing during restorative yoga sessions, or the receiving of acupuncture treatments.

As I would allow my mind to settle, with my eyes closed, while focused on my breathing, I would observe my thoughts until the space between them would grow. Then, gently, I would receive the color of indigo to cobalt blue, with the blue hue deepening (depending upon how much light was shining through the blue), all in my mind’s eye!

I now know that whenever I soul explore, my mama and her babies, are always guiding me. And I dedicate this article to them. They show me that they are blissfully all together, in the Great Beyond!

Soul Exploring

As I’ve written previously, you know that I was destined to meet Patricia McGivern, author of both, Angel Babies and Soul Explorer.

Patricia’s brilliant and deep blue eyes had inexplicably showed me that we shared a connection right from our first meeting, though back then, I could not possibly fathom as to what extent. Even now, I feel I am still only knowing of the “tip of the iceberg” so to say, of our interconnectedness.

When my unborn sister, Christina, came through (during my first hypnosis session with Patricia), I glimpsed more than Christina’s beautiful spirit, pulsing right on time, and in perfect resonance–I caught a bit of her essence.

Myriad points of intersection

You can’t physically see how each of us are connected, or where all of the paths of our lives intersect, but they profoundly cross and mingle.

You don’t know when the intersections are going to occur, but they will!

Christina showed me several spiritual mysteries, and while I studied Patricia’s book, Soul Explorer, I was opened up to realizing more.

I’d gone north to visit my daughter, son-in-law, soul-connected (golden, crystal, or indigo child) granddaughter, Jennifer Ann, and twins, Jaclyn Moon, and Jewel Marie for the month of May. And during my late evening times alone is when I would study, Soul Explorer.

Intro to the book

If you have been intrigued about past lives, and wonder how it might work, or if it even could be possible, I highly recommend reading Soul Explorer.

There are so many detailed accounts of people’s past lifetimes, later validated through dedicated research and discovery, that it shines a bright light on an otherwise not often talked about subject.

Personally, I was drawn to the many accounts of physical healing that occurred after someone underwent a past life regression–profoundly amazing!!

Highlighted passages

I highlighted many passages and sentences in Soul Explorer, and thus, it would be exhaustive for me to share them all with you. Plus, I wouldn’t want to spoil the fun and intrigue for any of you before you read this richly developed book!

So, here are a few of the most meaningful parts, (that resonated with me on many levels–even including names, places, and page numbers), I discovered:

Page 45 (Bill’s story):

“I thought I could fix her.”

I experienced the same kind of on again/off again relationship with a man years ago, and this chapter validated many of the things I learned from that period of my life. This story also answered why I had felt like my choices were not my own (during that time), though I do believe I had a choice and eventually did act upon my right and power to choose to leave–once I gave myself the necessary permission.

Page 85 (Ginny’s story):

“I thought it would be easier to have a life where I wasn’t loved, and I didn’t love anyone including me…so that it wouldn’t hurt so much.”

This chapter’s story helped me to have some understanding of why some people are hateful, bitter, mean, and can’t or won’t express love.

Page 117 (Ginny’s story):

“I chose to stay behind.”

My sister, Christina, had told me (while I was in a state of hypnosis), that she chose to stay behind (not incarnate) out of fear.

Much in Ginny’s story resonated for me, and I hope to meet her in an upcoming journey to England, Ireland, and Scotland in 2019.

Page 255 (Bobbie’s story): I wasn’t going to include this one, but I opened the book at 2:55pm today and saw this underlined and the page number circled!

“Just me… they stink!

And I had scrawled in the margin that this could be a judgment that could lead a person to not want to breathe!

Sure enough, on the next page I read that Bobbie had a high sense of judgment (so do I), and that she had felt like her lungs had been suffocated.

Note: I had asthma for 40+ years of my life! Could it have eased when I released the need to judge others?

Page 276:

“There is a part of you that remembers everything.”

This last page is astounding. I underlined almost the entire page! Mind-blowing.

You must read this book!

Meeting again

Even before I returned home, Patricia had seen a Facebook post of mine about our move (we moved April 1st to Patricia’s hometown)! And of course, us moving to the town we did was outside of any of our conscious awareness that it would give us a reason and ease of ability to connect–so soon!

Just days after my return home, Patricia and I met for lunch and talked for an hour, nearly non-stop! Every other moment I felt “God bumps.” (Refer to my previous posts to learn more about the physical sensations I call, God bumps.)

How grand and magnificent it is to think, my sister Christina, Patricia McGivern and her Angel Babies book, and a metaphysical shop in New Hampshire, all played starring roles in my daughter’s journey to birth identical twin daughters, and for me to be their grandmother!

How blessed we all are. And how intricately, and infinitely, We Are All Connected. (Even when we cannot see the lines.)

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Blessings in ALL ways,

Namaste. OM

My take on New Thought

First, the back drop I’d like to make is that one of the things humans love to do is to make much ado about nothing. We love to categorize, label, and define things, which often leads to us complicating very simple things. We also love to feel in CONTROL, by controlling situations, or people, around us.

I love to find the wisdom within the simple things. I love to look at everything from a child’s point of view. I feel this helps keep my thoughts and energy balanced.

Thus, the main points I’d like to capture here are as follows:

I’ve written previously that there are many names for God, whilst Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence is above and beyond and LIMITLESS of “naming.” To say that Omni-everything is a Deity (whether personal or impersonal) with any name, still sounds limiting to me.

Oneness works for the Omni-everything, but Divineness (to me) still implies some sort of inherent “goodness.” Omni-everything is ever-living, creating and destroying. If you can find the “goodness” in destruction, then perhaps we’re sharing the same stream of consciousness.

To strictly state that there is a “Law” of anything is something difficult for a child to understand. My six year old granddaughter knows when she touches something too hot, it can hurt her. Or if she drops something heavy on her toe, that it hurts. But she does not comprehend any kind of law, not even the law of gravity, much less the law of attraction. However, could there be any kind of laws, of course, though that concept seems man-made to me, so if you think Omni-everything dictates certain precepts or laws, you’re anthropomorphizing the LIMITLESS.

One may also suggest that LIMITLESS constructs the Universes according to certain laws. I’d rather suggest that LIMITLESS organizes Universes by design. Within art, there are no mistakes. Take whatever you think Perfection is, and find the imperfection. Find a way to love that.

Through the LIMITLESS Omni-everything, we are. We exist. We BE. Whether or not we’ve lived before, most surely we live NOW. And right now we are creating our reality through our thoughts, time, attention, intention, and way of BEing. For this, we are each responsible. We are choosing in every minute, by direct focus, or not.

Whether we realize the impact of our actions, which stem from each and every thought we have, effects others or not, We Are All Connected, so they do. We sew and reap. What we sew impacts others. And others sew impacts us. But always, there are ways for us to choose.

Some people choose not to live in a house divided, or in a county where too much control is exerted over them. They CHOOSE to leave. In this way, they are creating their own reality by choosing to make a better choice for them, in the NOW.

Even people in bondage can choose to control their thoughts and find freedom there. Those who do not feel they have any choice in their day to day, can meditate and find relief. No one can ever control  your thoughts. In your thoughts is where you can find total freedom.

A child would not know of, or necessarily be caught up in performing rituals or services, thus dogmas and religions wouldn’t be important. However, most children understand (by way of parental conditioning) that honoring their parents, or those that care for them, is important. I find a personal fulfillment in the honoring of my ancestors, if for no other reason than I would not be here in this life, physically, had it not been for them.

It matters not to me of which religion or dogma my ancestors believed, or practiced. I am still here. I am thinking it would be better somehow if I came to be here via the LOVE they expressed for one another, but I am mature enough to realize that is not the case for everyone. Some are born outside of, and apart from a loving experience, but that does not mean they cannot find love. And it certainly does not mean they are not worth of being loved.

Children understand that truth, love, and compassion FEELS freeing. It does not feel good to be called names (even in a joking way), and it does not feel good to be excluded or neglected.

Children do not get all that caught up in whether they’ve lived before, or whether someone leaves their experience, as long as their present moment is nurturing and fun–full of new and continuing opportunities for BEing part of something, anything!

 

 

Therefore, the use of exclusionary words, such as “only” cause divisiveness.

When you limit anyone about anything with words such as “only” you are using control, or attempting to guide them in one direction. The Omni-everything allows, (not control). Control is an illusion, and one that is best let go of, if one prefers to FEEL free.

In freedom and love,

OM

How can you know your Soul?

Some people feel it. They feel their soul within their body when they’re in the groove, happy, and sensing elation.

Some sing with soul and love soul music. And while that’s aWEsOMe, that’s not exactly what I’m referring to in this post.

How can you really “know” your Soul?

From my experience, and from what I’ve learned in the last five years…

  • Your Soul knows why you are here, but you may not realize why you’re here–yet
  • Your Soul is not good or bad, it’s just your true Self, the part of you that has always been and will continue to be
  • Your Soul is your essence, your most honest Self
  • Your Soul is the real you
  • As you open your “real eyes” to your Soul, it will emerge
  • When your in alignment with your Soul, you’ll feel good
  • You may want to defend why you’re here to others, but you don’t have to, just let them move on (They have their own path)
  • Your Soul will draw the people, places, and things to you that you need, because you don’t really need much (in the physical) to accomplish what you came here for
  • Your Soul has everything it needs for you to accomplish what you came here for–just listen
  • Sit with, meditate,  pray, listen–you’ll know what to do
  • Take action when prompted–you’ll feel a push or pull
  • When you are ready, a teacher will appear–look, listen, feel, and learn

When you are in alignment with your Soul:

  • You’ll feel on fire
  • You’ll feel on purpose
  • You’ll feel appreciation for everything
  • You’ll feel gratitude even when you can’t figure out what you’re grateful for
  • People will say that you’re glowing
  • Your eyes will sparkle or twinkle and people will notice it, and the ones who are living in alignment with their Soul, will tell you
  • Your voice will be strong and full of compassion
  • Things  you used to find to be difficult will just sort of flow, or fall easily into place
  • Some people may call you lucky
  • You’ll sense that your ambition fills you with Energy, even when you’re physically tired
  • You won’t feel lonely, sad, depressed, or stressed, because your Soul will be motivating you to action
  • And you’ll always have something to do, something going on, not busy work, Soul directed joyful tasks
  • You’ll sense a confidence in your manner that you may not have ever felt before
  • Action in alignment with your Soul will somehow move mountains
  • You’ll want to nurture your Soul
  • You’ll be drawn to seek out your Soul more and more, and Connect with it

Your Soul, when you are on a path of DOING what you came to do, will cause you to feel wonderful good feeling emotions (Energy in motion)!  You may feel a tingle, small electric kind of charge, or even goose bumps–what I call God bumps!

Note: As you start to know your Soul, you may notice that your Ego may take a hit. Just know that going into this work, as your Ego is grown out of your Beliefs (conditioning, or “programming”), but your Soul is your Truth, which must always take precedence. Your Soul shall preempt your Ego. And that’s good. Let it Be.

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Namaste. OM

Me too. Until now.

“I want all of the girls watching here now to know, that a new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say, ‘me too’ again.” Energetically stated by, Oprah Winfrey, when she accepted the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille award during the Golden Globe Awards 2018. #GoldenGlobes

https://www.facebook.com/GoldenGlobes/videos/1884721461569863/

You know, every time I watch Oprah’s Golden Globe 2018 Cecil B. DeMille’s lifetime achievement award acceptance speech, I become so emotional. I understand that it’s not just because of the words within the so well-crafted speech that connects Oprah (along with us) back to her childhood, or even her captivating and powerful delivery. Yes, her speech builds up to a certain momentum–that’s true. But, Oprah uses this time, so elegantly, to teach us a grand history lesson about Recy Taylor and Rosa Parks. And to emphasize why that lesson is so important.

While I understand that we may not always share the same word definitions, personally, yes, very personally and deep, Oprah’s speech resonates with me. Why? Because I have “been there.”

I have been in too many situations where I have been sexually harassed, intimidated, berated, held back from raises or promotions, mentally and physically abused, and more. And whether through ignorance, immaturity, or low self-esteem (low self worth), on some level, I allowed men (and even a few women) to belittle, bully, manipulate, or coerce me into doing things that—at least at the time—were not in my best interest and made me feel even worse about myself.

Yes, you may think that I am strong. And many times I had to be strong. But I am sensitive, more serious than joyful, and quiet. I studied, prayed, and doggedly pulled myself through it all, (believing always with God’s help—even when I found myself in the most brazen of situations) because I had children to raise. And while I learned, forgave, and mustered through, there were times I faltered. There were times I got angry and stood up for myself and my children. But those times were rare, because it seemed there was always someone else standing near to be critical of my stance, not knowing (how could they?) of all the prior bullshit I had endured.

Only because of where I am now can I say, “Everything resolves to gratitude.

Because now, I get the end game. I’ve glimpsed the Great Beyond that awaits us all, where all of the tiny entanglements between us, all of the reasons, and nearly inconceivable intentions will be revealed!

I understand We Are All Connected, and that we are on a mysterious, yet marvelous journey in this life. That every little thing matters. That love, faith, gratitude, and joy are our rewards, and that we can experience them NOW.

The gratitude I carry with me today having come through all the chaos, does not mean I think it’s okay for abuse or bullying to occur, nor do I think it’s okay for anyone to remain in an abusive relationship. However, I know not everyone in an abusive relationship knows HOW to ask for help, or HOW to get out. I know that they may feel trapped.

More to my point though, is that I believe in hope, even if it’s only a glimmer, or only a fractal.

Take one step forward, then another. Hope. Ask. Share. Trust. Move forward with faith that you can heal, and that you can be free.

As my wise sister-in-law has taught me, “never let anyone steal your joy.” And there is always something to be joyful about, even if it’s only breath!

Live while you’re alive! Do things with people who fascinate you! Dream big!

Focus.

Only you see life through your eyes. Only you can decide what’s right for you.

To those who do not like Oprah, or do not understand her speech, it’s probably because you have not been through hell, or not the kind she spoke about.

I would encourage you to refrain from judging her speech on snippets, pundits remarks, or whatever political motivations you might think she has, etc. because for some people (like me), her speech was so vindicating and liberating that we may never be the same!

I’ve been waiting a lifetime to hear it! And I am not alone. So, please, don’t steal our joy!

Thank you, Oprah!

Here’s to the many who will be empowered to say, “Me too. Until now.”

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Namaste. OM

Everything resolves to Gratitude. Everything.

So today’s story (boys and girls), is about Gratitude with a capital G, in ALL circumstances:
A typical scenario
A corporate office type, yet meditative gentleman, drives over an hour each way to work, one afternoon notices a car flashing his lights at him.
Was the following driver a Good Samaritan (an angel) perhaps? Trying to warn our meditative man of something wrong?
As it turns out, after the gentleman arrives at work, he checks his rear tires and finds tread hanging from one of them! He has a spare, but prefers to buy two new tires.
He calls his wife on the phone.
But, his wife informs him that they have “no money in our budget for tires.”
Our main character becomes disgruntled.
Later the this man feels he wasn’t bold enough with his wife.
However, from our vantage point, we can see that neither realized:

A) they should be grateful the man has a job and that he got to work okay (and did not have a tire blowout or cause an accident)
B) the good samaritan or angel warned him about the tire
C) that new tires are cheaper than accident related costs (deductible, time off work, etc)

After a tense dialog with wife about the tires…Man said his wife is under pressure preparing for a Bible study program.
We find that the irony in this story is:
What is the point of Bible study (or any spiritual practice) if we cannot open our eyes to all the blessings afforded to us in the moment they occur?
Caring About How You Feel
Wayne Dyer shares his own personal experiences with forgiveness, inspiration and creativity, and staying in tune with Source Energy while Abraham delivers poignant answers to both Wayne’s and in turn, humanity’s most pressing questions.
Do you have to constantly be aware of your thoughts? I mean they just come and—
No, but you do have to care about how you feel, because if you care about how you feel, when you start down the track that is not in keeping with the Source within you, you’ll feel the emptiness. Emptiness is a good description, because that’s exactly what it is. You have diverged from what Source thinks about a particular subject or situation.
That’s amazing, because years ago when Wayne first got a cell phone, he had to put an outgoing voicemail message on it, and was very heavy into Abraham-Hicks’ work at the time. And so his message said, “This is Wayne Dyer that you’ve reached. And I want to feel good. So if your message is designed to do anything other than that, you’ve reached the wrong number. Perhaps then you want to call Dr. Phil or someone, you know, who wants to hear bad news.” And so it was, that for many years, that was Wayne’s outgoing message on his voicemail–because he always wanted to feel good.
That’s the message that Source has, too.
Right.
Thus, when we’re having thoughts that don’t make us feel good—we’re in a relationship with someone that doesn’t feel good; we’re in a job that doesn’t feel good—is Source Energy going to offer us some experiences that are going to match up to what we are thinking that is feeling bad, feeling horrible?
It isn’t Source that’s giving it to you. There are no lessons being applied.
Well, I mean certain people show up in your life experiences, synchronistic kinds of things.
Things are always working out for you—always.
So, it’s like your gauge to look at your feelings. What does this feel like in my body? And if it doesn’t feel good, instantly go back to whatever thought it is that I’m having that is allowing this to take place? I mean, can we all just always feel good all the time?
The way Abraham likes to explain it is that when you offer a thought about anything, Source, who is always walking with you, thinking with you, living with you, is having a thought about the same thing.
That’s really important to hear.
And when you feel good, your thought is in sync with the way Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient Source thinks about it. And when you feel bad, you’re off the track of what Source knows about it. And you also have to understand that you are the one who came up with the desire to begin with. You are the one who told Source who-you-are and what you want. In other words, you are the creator of your own reality. Source is the one who holds the vibrational frequency of what you’re asking for.
If that’s a little much to grasp, think of it this way, you envision how you want your life to be, and God puts everything around you, for you to live your life, just as you envision it. However, you often can’t believe that is true, so your lack of Faith, makes that true. You live smaller than you could.

Not to dwell much about the negative thought, but “Do I have an improved option?”

Instead of labeling our thoughts positive and negative, let’s say, improved or not improved.

In other words, it’s the best thought we can find, at the time (as all of this is done “in the moment”).

Depending upon the lens you see life through, it could still be a negative thought, but it might be enough to shift your feelings a bit into the happier place.

So, we have to take negative and positive out of the equation because that causes someone else to want to apply their standards about whether it’s positive or negative, and nobody else can apply their standards.

The only question is, is it an improved thought for me?

I have been saying, “Thank you for helping me make a better choice” for some time when confronted with strangeness, odd or baffling behavior. Ahhh, yes, this takes a bit of practice (or play).

Now, I’ll say, “Thank you for helping me make an improved choice for me.”

Take a walk outside and look at all of the abundance of nature that surrounds you. God created that. And then think to yourself, God created You! As we learned in the Beattitudes, if God clothed the flowers in the field so gloriously, would God not also do the same for you, if you were to but Believe it into being?
It’s not possible for you to desire something that would be detrimental to anyone, and feel good at the same time, because if you set forth an intention like that, you would deviate from the vibration of Source and you would feel the emptiness of it.
So, there is no need to worry that something you may want, would in any way reduce it from someone else (or keep it away from someone else). It is not selfish to desire. It is only selfish to hoard what you have.
Desire, create, and then GIVE out of Gratitude!
So, it really is all about caring about the way you feel, about thinking more deliberately and on point about how you feel. And maintain your FOCUS.
My take aways on this are:
Ask myself, does this thought or statement, unify or divide?
How does it make me feel?
Emotions were given to me by my LIMITLESS, Ever-Living, Filling ALL Space, Creator Source Energy God — do I honor my feelings??
If not, then move toward finding ways to feel better (not worse) about whatever subject I’m thinking about.
Is X of value to me right now?
Abraham or anyone else’s opinion is irrelevent.
It’s only ever and always about, “How does it make me feel”?
Better feeling thoughts about work:
Who’s running the asylum?
Not my Circus, not my monkeys!
Thank you for helping me make a better choice.
I can always choose to be kind.
I can always send them love.
How you feel about yourself, affects others. Walk in Gratitude ALL ways.
And if you ever feel that you’ve messed up, it’s okay. Because in the end, everything resolves to Gratitude. Yes, really, it does.
Thank you.

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Namaste. OM
