(FYI, this site is under construction as I combine my Evolution Made Easier website with my blog of the same name. Please check back after the first of the year when, hopefully, the “remodeling” will be complete, or close to it. Thanks for your understanding!)
PICKS FOR TODAY:
# 1 – Good stimulation from Tama Kieves…..
Trusting Yourself and Your Potential
Getting the A:
I used to be the girl who needed to nab an A in every subject in school. I’d study what you wanted me to study—what grabbed your attention, not mine. That’s because I had no idea that chasing approval and “security” was keeping me from discovering my certainty and my power, my chance to create everything I’d ever wanted.
But this is what I’ve come to learn: You can’t chase approval and aliveness at the same time . Do you want to live someone else’s advice? Or do you want to live your birthright?
An inspired life is the result of owning your own uncanny brilliance. You have an indwelling, intuitive authority that can lead you all the way. Yes, even you.
I made this choice long ago, when I first left the practice of law to become a writer. I traded “security” for meaning and heightened magic, knowing deep down that I’d claim everything , creative salvation and a tidy way to pay the bills, by following the call that meant everything to me. But I’ve had to make this choice ten thousand times it seems, each time as though it were brand new—because some part of me still thinks that maybe I’ll find certainty by following the authority of others, instead of my own.
As a driven, ambitious person, it feels threatening to let go of doing things the “right way,” following the “experts,” and “getting the A,” in favor of stumbling into unmarked territory, because you have some hunch. Believe me, I still love the “world’s approval.” I love the bangles she wears and the beaded purse stuffed with dollars to buy my time and allegiance. But I have resisted her charms. I am chasing a greater security than anything that I can deposit in a bank. I am hunting my own authenticity. I am determined to live my full potential in this lifetime.
These days I am still getting an A, but now it’s in Adventure. Authenticity. Alignment. Abundance. — Tama Kieves

# 5 – And from Abe…..
We don’t ask much of you usually – but we have a particular request of you because of what we have accomplished here in these hours that we have been together. This is what we ask of you:
Please. We are asking please …
Be nicer to yourself.
Take it easier.
Put in a little less time on the things that you feel you need to do.
Spend more time doing the things that you really want to do.
Don’t pick a fight.
And don’t fight back.
Look for things that are humorous and funny.
Spend more time by yourself.
Get outside more.
Look at the advantages that this time-space reality is yielding to you.
Find appreciation for the beauty that this planet is yielding to you.
Spend more time around animals – they are more allowing.
Tell your human friends you love them and you’ll see them later. (Long pause – audience laughter)
Be easier about everything.
Be more playful about everything.
Be more consciously selfish for yourself.
Do more of the things that feel good to you.
Let your ‘Things to do today’ list wait until tomorrow and the next day and the next day.
Notice that if you don’t get it wet, the dust will keep. (Audience laughter)
In other words, be easy.
You’re ready for this.
You’ve put so much in your Vortex that’s ripe and ready for you – just be easy and watch what happens. – Abraham Hicks, Philadelphia PA closing 10/22/16
