Sunday, January 29th, 2012 Focus: I choose to let go and trust the process.

When we are “manifesting” or creating our experience of reality, we don’t see the end result until, well, until we get to the end result. It’s like when you bake a cake. You put this gooey substance in the oven, and you don’t really know that it will make a fluffy cake until it is done.

So with the “cake” of our life. We simply mix the ingredients together as per the recipe (which is supplied mostly by our intuition and inner guidance) and turn it over to Spirit, God, Universe, Creator (the oven). We don’t keep opening the oven door to make sure the cake is coming along fine. We trust that the oven knows what it’s doing, and we wait for the result.

Many authors have referred to this as trusting the process, letting go, and many other such terms. Wayne Dyer wrote a book years ago entitled “You’ll See It When You Believe It”. The idea is to follow the steps needed for your “recipe” and then set it in the “Universe’s manifestating chamber” (that’s Planet Earth) and go on with your life. When the end result appears, you’ll see that, all along, it’s been a piece of cake!

Focus: I allow a forgiving spirit to flow through me.

If others have been unkind to you, consider that they may have been hurt in some way. Their harmful actions could simply be a manifestation of the pain in their own hearts and minds.

It’s not wise to judge others’ actions until we truly know their story.

By seeing them as wounded beings, the targets of unkindness themselves, your heart will open . . . which allows a forgiving spirit to flow through you.

I choose to embrace my true self and follow my own star.

Dreams, said Carl Jung, are the voice of nature within us.

Hermann Hesse predicted that when enough individuals begin to listen to na­ture’s voice and pay heed to their own dreams — including their visions, in­tuitions, and instinctive promptings — the greatest revolution in all history will unfold. This is not an ending, but rather a beginning.

When each of us chooses to embrace our true self and follow our own star, the real revolution will commence.

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012 Focus: I look at myself and see where love is lacking.

It was found years ago, that many alcoholics are diabetics… In other words, the sugar they crave is found in the process of converting alcohol to sugar in the body… However, what is a diabetic really craving?

Louise Hay in the book You Can Heal Your Life, says that the “probably cause” (or metaphysical cause) of diabetes is “deep sorrow, no sweetness left”… Thus the craving for sugar corresponds to a craving for “sweetness”, or love.

While not being a diabetic, when I find myself craving ice cream, I realize that I am really craving love… so I look at my life, and see where it is lacking. I first tend to look outwards (i.e. who isn’t giving me love), but eventually I must come around to the real source — myself. And I then find that I haven’t been loving to myself, either by not eating well, working too much, not taking enough time for me, being angry at myself for something, etc.

Saturday, January 21st, 2012 Focus: I seek more laughter, calmness, and clarity in my life.

Chronic stress produces high cortisol levels that don’t go away. Chronically high cortisol will make you sick, physically and emotionally.

Stress can come from multiple sources including these six: negative emotions, too little sleep, poor diet, overwork, toxic chemicals, and inflammation.

The antidote for stress is balance. Look at each of these six stress triggers individually and work on finding small ways to reduce excesses and achieve more balance in each area. Seek more laughter, calmness, and clarity in your life.

Thursday, January 5th, 2012 Focus: I choose to relax and slow down.

 

When it comes to being in a hurry, what difference does it make how fast you can get somewhere when all you find there is the next thing for you to rush through?

There may be no greater self-deception than the false notion that rushing through anything actually helps us in any way whatsoever. After all, if anxious thoughts and feelings had any power to deliver us to a place or time where peace awaits, don’t you think we’d have gotten there by now?

The more clearly we can see that it’s impossible to reach a place of rest by rushing to get there, the sooner we’ll arrive at the true solutions that allow us to relax, slow down, and realize the relaxed pace of an inwardly liberated life…  Read More

Monday, January 2nd, 2012 Focus: I give myself the gift of forgiveness.

“If I didn’t forgive this young man, I would be tortured for the rest of my life.”

When you forgive, you relieve yourself of a hook in your soul, so to speak. You are harming yourself if you leave it there by choosing to withhold forgiveness.

Forgiving others is perhaps the most wonderful gift you can ever give yourself, while choosing not to forgive is like consuming poison, and then waiting for the other person to die…  Read More
