# 1 – Is this your experience?
# 2 – Another tip with an animal theme,… this time a delightful story of “strange bedfellows” becoming one big happy family. A good reminder for us humans….
# 3 – A good tie-in with Tip # 1 from Brian Johnson’s The Optimizer….
GOLD FISH, BONZAI TREES & YOU
“We have all been hypnotized into thinking that we are smaller than we are. Just as an undersized flowerpot keeps a mighty tree root-bound or a little fishbowl keeps goldfish tiny, we have adapted, adjusted, and accommodated to a Lilliputian life. But place the same tree in an open field or the fish in a lake, and they will grow to hundreds of times their size. Unlike the tree or goldfish, you are not dependent on someone else to move you. You have the power to move yourself. You can step into a broader domain and grow to your full potential.”
~ Alan Cohen from Why Your Life Sucks
Did you know that goldfish are kept tiny because of their little bowl?! And that if we let them swim in a natural size lake they’d grow to 100+ times that little size?!
And same with bonzai trees, eh? Restrict the roots by putting it in a tiny pot and you’ll get a tiny tree. Put that same tree in a forest and let its roots stretch out and voila! We’ve got a ginormous tree.
SAME THING WITH OUR LIVES.
If we buy into the hypnosis of our limited potential, we’ll be stunted little beings. If, however, we can plant ourselves in the spaciousness of our vast potential, watch out!! :)
# 4 – This tip is also a good tie-in with #1 and # 3 because self-image is powerfully influenced by your degree of self-love, so it’s great that The Shift Network is offering a free webinar by an expert on the topic…..
Alanis Morissette, Lindsey Wagner, Neale Donald Walsch and John Grey have all praised and recommend her “Inner Bonding” work. Who is she? Margaret Paul, and we are excited to announce that Margaret is returning to The Shift Network for her next course in May!
On Wednesday, May 20th at 5:30 pm Pacific, she will present a free call titled: From Judgment to Self-Love: How to End the Inner Struggle and Deeply Value Your Full Self.
This call can help listeners get to the root cause of much of the depression, anxiety, relationship issues – even addictions – that are manifestations of a severe epidemic in our culture: lack of self-love.
You can find out more and sign-up here.
# 5 – Ah, it’s the ole BEing vs doing thing…..
Take the time to line up the Energy first, and action becomes inconsequential. If you don’t take the time to line up the Energy, if you don’t find the feeling place of what you’re looking for, not enough action in the world will make any difference. ∼Abraham
