Friday, January 31st, 2014 Focus: The true story of who I really am begins now.

Right Brain

The true story of who we really are begins now. We are no longer tossed willy-nilly from one desire, thought, or worry to another in a futile process of trying to escape the nearly infinite forms of “this isn’t it” and especially “I am not sufficient as I am.”

If we realize that we are truly originating ourselves over and over, we have the power to claim a relationship to ourselves that begins right now. Then we are capable of responding to our own feelings or to our situations rather than reacting. When we react, we contribute to the problem. Our judgments are quick, poorly considered, and generally defensive or self-negating. We feel divided from ourselves as well as from others. It becomes difficult to know what to do next.

We can take the time to appreciate what we are feeling and see our own states of being, and the behavior of others, in a larger context of empathy and compassion. There is no lingering misery, and no sense of being lost and afraid. Instead there is a growing space of trust. But to have this kind of personal authority, we have to learn to stay right here and wait with our minds stilled until the waters calm and we sense the deeper current of our lives once again.

Thursday, January 30th, 2014 Focus: My wish is the Universe’s command, whether consciously or unconsciously.

universe
Most of the people who try to implement the Law of Attraction and fail are unaware of the issues that are blocking their ability to manifest their desires. This is usually because they haven’t done the work required to clearly attract what they think they want. The reason I say “think they want” is because contrary to their belief, the technique is actually working perfectly.

Making a list of affirmations and reciting them over and over is a powerful tool, but saying I am an abundant being to yourself does very little if deep down — beneath your conscious mind — you believe the opposite.

Your wish is the Universe’s command, whether consciously or unconsciously. It will give you everything you ask for, so it’s vital that you know exactly what it is you’re asking for. Otherwise, you’ll practice these techniques and pull into your life all the things you believe you don’t want, and you’ll say that it doesn’t work. It does work – every time! Now it’s time for you to do the work so that your soul’s desire – not your ego’s – will be realized.

RECOMMENDED BOOK OF THE DAY

The Moses Code: The Most Powerful Manifestation Tool in the History of the World — by James F. Twyman.

At the very heart of the Moses Code is the true function and practice of the Law of Attraction. You may have been told that this Law is all about “getting” the things you want-things that you think will make your life more satisfying. But what if that’s just the first step, and cracking the Moses Code depends more on what you’re willing to “give” rather than “get”. You’re here to use the power of Divinity itself to create a world based on the laws of compassion and peace. That’s the task that lies before us.

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 Focus: I choose to focus on one good thing… and then another.

Awesome
It is easy to fall into the complaining habit especially when so many around us seem caught up in it! The newscasters focus on negative events, even friends and family focus on what is going wrong with them (oh my arthritis! oh my bad knees! oh my! oh my!) so that it is sometimes too easy to fall into the trap.

Yet, we can change the tone of conversations… or at least we can change our part in them by focusing on just one good thing.. and then another… and another… Until we have created a habit in ourselves of always looking for one good thing, and then another, and another…

So today I wish you the pleasure of focusing on just one good thing to set the tone of your day… Once you start doing this every morning, you’ll find that not only is it habit forming, it is a habit that is truly enjoyable… and that is a really good thing!

Monday, January 27th, 2014 Focus: I allow my passion to guide me to my right livelihood.

Right Brain
When you allow your passion to guide you to your right livelihood, you will be hard-pressed to call it “work.” While the Wright brothers were developing the first airplane, one of them told a reporter, “We can’t wait to get up in the morning!”

People who have found their true calling report that they are having so much fun, they feel like they should be paying people to let them do it. Yet they are paid well for their services, and rightfully so. Their gifts go far beyond the obvious service they perform; they are teaching (by example) authentic self-expression, which cannot be translated into dollars.

You don’t need to be a Wright brother to be able to look forward to your day. Just be you. Heed your natural instincts. When something lights you up, pursue it. When something shuts you down, step back. The world will not fall apart if you take care of yourself before your clients. It will come together.

Friday, January 24th, 2014 Focus: I seek to find truth and wisdom in each new viewpoint I encounter.

universe
Many people confuse the concept of tolerance with indifference or naiveté. To be tolerant, we must value the right of each person to hold beliefs different from our own, even when we think those beliefs are incorrect.

When we reach the most profound levels of tolerance, we cease to be threatened by foreign ideas; instead, we seek to find truth and wisdom in each new viewpoint we encounter.

By approaching the world with arms outstretched, our souls become infused with the power of many peoples and beliefs.

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014 Focus: I choose to handle my anger in a way that is helpful to me.

It goes to eleven
Anger is an extremely powerful emotion. It can energize you in a way that most emotions do not. Think of all the energy you use when you are angry. Now think of what you could do with that energy if it were directed in a way that was beneficial to you.

You can choose to handle your anger in a way that is helpful to you, or not. However you choose to handle your anger, try not to hold it inside. Holding on to your anger internally will not help you feel better emotionally. Besides, if you hold your anger in, it is likely to affect your health, and who wants that?

Ways to Express Anger:

Discuss your feelings of anger in an effective, assertive manner with someone you trust.
Do physical exercise of any type (walking, jogging, biking, swimming, etc.).
Write about how you are feeling in a journal.
Rearrange closets, drawers, cabinets, shelves, etc.
Do arts and crafts activities (sewing, knitting, drawing, etc.).
Engage in household activities (painting, wallpapering, gardening, polishing silverware).

Monday, January 20th, 2014 Focus: Gratitude impacts my mood, my sleep, how I eat, exercise, and interact with others.

wow
Here is a gratitude practice that can have an immediate impact on your life:

Every three or four days, look back over that time period and write down three to five things that happened at home for which you are grateful. This could be appreciation for a kind act someone did for you or for any of the little things in your life — that comfortable chair, the flavor of a particular food, the book you are reading, the music you love, the hot water in your shower. (You are not limited to five items.)

Do this for a four-week period to see how it affects your life. You might even track how gratitude impacts your mood, your sleep, how you eat, exercise, and interact with others.
