Saturday, November 30th, 2013 Focus: I make a conscious decision to be happy, healthy, and at peace.

Awesome
Most of us tend to blame our hardships on something outside of ourselves, something beyond our control. I know I did. Financial situations, breakups, health issues . . .

There comes a day — and for each of us the timing is different — when we say, “No more suffering!” That day, I made the conscious decision, the conscious choice that I did not want to suffer anymore. Where does suffering really occur? I believe it’s in our minds, in our hearts, and in our bodies.

My day came, my light bulb lit up, when I realized that my suffering was from within. That was when I started living. That’s when I acknowledged that I was creating my suffering, and everything outside of me was just a “learning ground.” Everything outside of me was there for me to learn and grow. Only after this realization could I make a conscious decision to be happy, healthy, and at peace.

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 Focus: “I do not accept your anger, rage, or hostility.”

eclipse
If a person gets mad at you for no reason and starts offending you, then say to yourself mentally, if not directly to the person — “I do not accept your anger, rage, or hostility.” Feel as if it is beautiful, clear water running through a sieve. You have purified and neutralized the energy sent to you. You have done a very beautiful thing: Now that you have neutralized that negative energy; it cannot harm anyone.

Instead of resisting, try to just relax and let it pass through. If you do, it goes away. The harder you fight, the more negativity you add to it. They really cannot do much beyond scaring you. Let them do whatever they wish. Trust me when I tell you that it will subside.

If somebody is out to get you or you feel threatened, immediately begin to purify that negative energy. If you start doing that, it will be as automatic to you as breathing or blinking an eye.

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013 Focus: I choose to discover a positive aspect of a challenging situation (or individual) to appreciate.

Life is good

Life is good


Now frankly, when I’m in a crappy mood, there’s nothing I enjoy more than staying there. I still love to bitch and stew because it feels so good. The sad part is though, I also know every time I do that, my whole world is being negatively affected, not to mention I’m attracting more of whatever it is I’m bitching about. I’m just not willing to let that happen — much — anymore.

So begrudgingly, I’ll find some stupid, dumb, meaningless, insignificant thing about whatever it is I’m mad at that I might — possibly — begin to consider as a positive aspect of this situation or individual; something I might — just possibly — be able to appreciate. Then, looking very much like a defiant brat who has just been scolded, I’ll think of some way to begin talking to myself (almost always with a pout) to pump up whatever positive aspect I was able to muster.

The thing that fries me so when I’m in that kind of mood is that it always works. I find something to compliment, or appreciate, or admire about the jerk or situation, and before I know what’s hit me, I’ve got a head of steam going. I can actually feel the moment the pivot happens. Valve opened (I feel good); mission accomplished. Now I can let go, and allow the universe to do its thing.

Monday, November 25th, 2013 Focus: I can choose a different perception of this and a different way to respond.

eclipse
We are not robotic computers that have no choice but to react as we’re programmed. Our reactions and what we experience depend only on whether we are utilizing fear-based thinking or Life-centered thinking.

When you are having a challenging time with a particular person or health situation and decide to say “I can choose a different perception of this and a different way to respond,” you are directing your mind to shift from fear-based thinking to Life-centered thinking.

Commitment to this shift is necessary to achieve consistent peace of mind, for the two forms of thinking cannot coexist. From one comes a health challenge likely filled with suffering; from the other comes the discovery of freedom.

Wonder

Kislev 19, 5774 · November 22, 2013
Based on letters and talks of the Rebbe, Rabbi M. M. Schneerson

Amazement never ceases for the enlightened mind.

At every moment it views in astonishment the wonder of an entire world renewed out of the void, and asks, “How could it be that anything at all exists?”

Thursday, November 21st, 2013 Focus: I take small steps which will help me achieve giant leaps later.

Beautiful
When your frame of mind is to learn rather than to be perfect, failures can be wonderful teachers and motivators. You may stumble and fall, but each time you get up and go on, you are moving beyond worry and into more peace and power.

Eleanor Roosevelt said the following: “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. . . . The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it. . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

What would you do if you could do anything you wanted? What are you avoiding? You can do the things you think you can’t do, by breaking them down into smaller steps. Taking small steps will help you achieve giant leaps later.

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 Focus: I choose to consciously take time to feed my spirit.

eclipse
I believe it’s our birthright and responsibility to nurture our inner world, our connection to Spirit, and to create space for spiritual renewal through the paths of reflection, contemplation, stillness, ritual, service to others, and spiritual community.

Sometimes we may think we need to create “special conditions” or visit sacred places to connect to our spiritual nature, but God is everywhere — in the creek behind our home, in our family members’ eyes, in the stars overhead, in the stories we share at dinner — just waiting to be experienced.

What are your portals for spiritual renewal — those things your soul needs to be nourished? Do you consciously take time to feed your spirit through these pathways?
