Capricorn new moon, inspiring articles, raw milk & CFL updates, Abraham and more!


TIPS FOR TODAY:
I will be away visiting friends and family, so I probably won’t be doing any posting for the next few days, but wanted to wish everyone an inspired and inspiring holiday season and pass along these tips…
# 1 – Here’s a sweet message from The Children of the Sun Foundation. You may want to check out their site…
Blessed Holidays, dearest Light Transmitters and GEO Teams!
We have entered into the Holy Days, the most special time of the year when our Sun dances in alignment with the center of the Milky Way galaxy and, as they make love, divine codes of love-light are birthed throughout our solar system.  This month’s new moon, paired with such a powerful Solstice, reflects upon us the purity of our Father’s Divine Love.
As our dear Earth enters into the moments of stillpoint, where day and night curtsy and do-si-do, all humanity may feel the vibration of unconditional love quite profoundly.  As light servers, when our hearts fill with sacred fire-love, we enter the stillpoint within the holy temple of our being where we understand that ALL is Love and Love is God…simple as that.  The purity of this Love is what ignites the Sacred Fires and the sacredness of this Love is what holds the vision of the divine plan of Immaculate Concept.  When we are filled with this pure and holy Love, we radiate Sacred Fire and support divine plan with every breath we take!
Allow the purity of Divine Love to merge with your Holy Heart Temple, dear Children of the Sun, as we come together upon the Crystalline Grid this Holy-Day Season.  In Oneness, let us breathe the Sacred Fires throughout the grid for the healing of all in need, for the end of suffering, for the upliftment of humanity and for the ascension of our blessed Gaia.
As you celebrate, with your families, the rebirth of the Christos upon planet Earth, our Hearts runneth over with love for each of you, dear Children of the Sun.  We pray that 2012 will hold for you all the happiness you deserve, all the love you share, all the health you need, and all the peace you want!
# 2 – An article by Simone Butler at MoonCircles.com about the upcoming Capricorn new moon titled Cracking the Facade…

Several hundred years ago, as the Burmese army was about to invade Bangkok, temple monks covered their precious, solid gold Buddha with an eight-inch layer of clay to hide its value. Slaughtered to a man, they took their secret to the grave. The Buddha’s golden essence wasn’t discovered until 1957. During its relocation, the 2.5 ton statue cracked as rain began to fall. When the head monk inspected the statue that night, his flashlight revealed its true nature shining through. Injury followed by battering rain showed what this statue was really made of. And so it is for us fragile humans.

The coming year will reveal what we are made of, as it cracks the façade to reveal the gold within. To get a glimpse of what’s ahead, we look to the Winter Solstice (9:30 pm PST on Dec. 21st), and the Capricorn New Moon that closely follows it (5:47 am PST on Dec. 24). Both charts highlight the revolutionary Uranus-Pluto square that will shake things up between 2012 and 2015. Yet the Sun in early Capricorn also throws an exact, stabilizing trine to optimistic Jupiter in Taurus (the golden core), extra powerful as it prepares to turn forward on Christmas Day.

The year ahead promises enormous benefits, both material and spiritual (Jupiter), if we’re willing to release old patterns (Capricorn) and try something radically new (Uranus).  Both the Solstice and New Moon charts also spotlight Venus, newly into experimental Aquarius, as she advocates for growth and freedom via aspects to Jupiter and Uranus.

With all the planets in forward motion from Dec. 25 through Jan. 23 (when Mars turns retrograde), it’s a fine time to launch something new. Capricorn symbolizes our true work. To discover what that looks like, we must often let convention fall aside–to quit working just to make money or meet others’ expectations. Are you doing what you came here to do? In 2012, staying stuck in a rut will only invite suffering and loss. Yet opening yourself to your higher calling brings exhilarating freedom along with increased prosperity.

At this New Moon, say a prayer of thanks for your cracks and wounds—they let your golden essence shine through. Ask for any facades that are not the “real you,” from excess weight to soul-stifling work, to fall away. Then, bask in the bliss of your true, golden nature and carry that feeling forth into the new year.

Here’s an Astro Feng Shui ritual to help your true nature shine forth as you work the Fame gua of your home.

# 6 – And a little Abraham for good measure…

“Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction’s response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life. Your money and financial assets; your body’s state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards—indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general—is all happening because of the story that you tell.” — Abraham

Enjoy and happy holidays, “Zippy”

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – A great blog post from Chellie Campbell of The Wealthy Spirit….

“It isn’t the great big pleasures that count the most; it’s making a great deal out of the little ones.”—Jean Webster

The class on accomplishing goals was intense. Each week for eight weeks, the participants met and outlined their strategies for achieving them. Most of the people in the class were high achievers, energetic personalities. They were used to winning and not afraid of the hard work it took to get them where they wanted to go.

At the first class session, Korey listened quietly as each person energetically listed their dreams and desires, and what they were willing to do to achieve them. She, too, was a successful businessperson, an entrepreneur who had started her own tutoring business and built it into a thriving business with ten employees. She knew how to focus, visualize, and commit time and energy to the process of achievement.

But Korey was in crisis. In her determination to succeed, she had forgotten how to play. The goal-getting mode had become her constant setting, drive and determination her normal way of life. She was out of balance. She was unhappy. Knowing she needed to do something to change her life before she became another high-flyer who burned out, Korey enrolled in the goals class to accomplish this end.

One by one, each of the class participants outlined their goals. “My goal is to double my income,” said one. “I want to expand my business internationally,” said another. All of them had major, challenging, big business and big money goals. Each goal was met with applause and approval. As the last of the group, all eyes turned to Korey. “My goal is to nurture myself,” she said. “I will bring in a list each week of all the things I did during the week to take care of myself, to pamper myself, to have fun, and to relax.”

Pandemonium. Frowns. Quizzical looks. Anger and sarcasm. Everyone in the room protested her choice. “That’s not an appropriate goal for this class!” they argued. “This class is about achieving success!” “What good is success if you’re too tired to enjoy it?” she retorted. The instructor quieted everyone and allowed that Korey’s goal was a legitimate one and she could proceed with the class.

Every week, the class participants shared their successes: “I just got my SBA loan for $100,000,” “I made forty-five sales calls and closed three major deals,” “I was just elected president of my national association.” Korey brought in her nurturing list: “I walked on the beach in the middle of the afternoon: I painted pictures and listened to music; I took a bubble bath and lit the room with candles; I had a “Pajama Day” and read and watched movies in bed, I made a list of my best qualities and acknowledged myself for them.” The other participants listened enviously.

By the end of the course, everyone was asking for copies of her list.

Why not start your own list today?

Today’s Affirmation: “I relax, let go, and lovingly nurture myself.”

This is one of my favorite stories. I remember Korey telling me about this experience, and how fascinated she was at the reactions of the other people in her class. They were really upset and angry with her at first – perhaps they were afraid that her goals for nurturing herself would poison the hard-driving success-oriented-at-all-costs atmosphere with do-nothing-fritter-the-day-away couch potato-itis?

But she wasn’t advocating that – she was advocating balance, peace, appreciation, nuturing, relaxing. She wanted time out to be a human being instead of a human doing. You can’t be hard-charging 24/7. Balance is key.

So what are your favorite ways to nurture yourself?

p.s. If you are looking for a way to fortify yourself against possible radiation and other toxic substances, you may want to check out my website’s What’s New page for information about a superfood that is a superior blend of 7 whole-food sea vegetables. I did some research after hearing about it at Natural News and was impressed with both the product and company. The product supplies all your body’s daily nutritional needs, plus offers natural protection from
radiation and other toxic substances. The company adheres to universal
principles in the way the business is run and is dedicated to giving back to the community through Feeding America and offering fund-raising opportunities to non-profits across the U.S. That’s my kind of win-win-win situation! You can also get updated information about radiation and iodine, plus two free reports, one on weight loss, the other on glutathione and anti-aging. Check out my What’s New page, or e-mail me at info@allonetogether.com if you want to know more.

Thanks, and forward this on to anyone you think might vote, too!
And for inspiration and stimulation, here’s my Abraham quote for the day, my ACIM lesson for the day, AND my daily message from Chellie Campbell. You can get any or all of them delivered to your in-box by signing up at the appropriate website.

ABRAHAM QUOTE: 

 “Many people focus upon unwanted things, with no deliberate attention to the emotional Guidance within them, and then they try to compensate for their lackful thinking with physical action. And because of the misalignment of Energy, they do not get results from their action, so then they try harder by offering more action, but still things do not improve.

Like the air you breathe, abundance in all things is available to you. Your life will simply be as good as you allow it to be.”— Abraham

ACIM LESSON 37:

My holiness blesses the world.

This idea contains the first glimmerings of your true function in the
world, or why you are here. Your purpose is to see the world through
your own holiness. Thus are you and the world blessed together. No one
loses; nothing is taken away from anyone; everyone gains through your
holy vision. It signifies the end of sacrifice because it offers
everyone his full due. And he is entitled to everything because it is
his birthright as a Son of God.

There is no other way in which the idea of sacrifice can be removed
from the world’s thinking. Any other way of seeing will inevitably
demand payment of someone or something. As a result, the perceiver
will lose. Nor will he have any idea why he is losing. Yet is his
wholeness restored to his awareness through your vision. Your holiness
blesses him by asking nothing of him. Those who see themselves as
whole make no demands.

Your holiness is the salvation of the world. It lets you teach the
world that it is one with you, not by preaching to it, not by telling
it anything, but merely by your quiet recognition that in your
holiness are all things blessed along with you.

Today’s four longer exercise periods, each to involve three to five
minutes of practice, begin with the repetition of the idea for today,
followed by a minute or so of looking about you as you apply the idea
to whatever you see:

    My holiness blesses this chair
    My holiness blesses that window
    My holiness blesses this body.

Then close your eyes and apply the idea to any person who occurs to
you, using his name and saying

    My holiness blesses you, [name].

You may continue the practice period with your eyes closed; you may
open your eyes again and apply the idea for today to your outer world
if you so desire; you may alternate between applying the idea to what
you see around you and to those who are in your thoughts; or you may
use any combination of these two phases of application that you
prefer. The practice period should conclude with a repetition of the
idea with your eyes closed, and another, following immediately, with
your eyes open.

The shorter exercises consist of repeating the idea as often as you
can. It is particularly helpful to apply it silently to anyone you
meet, using his name as you do so. It is essential to use the idea if
anyone seems to cause an adverse reaction in you. Offer him the
blessing of your holiness immediately, that you may learn to keep it
in your own awareness.

CHELLIE CAMPBELL’S WEALTHY SPIRIT  BLOG 37 – February 6

“When I’m about to take a risk, I consider the down side. If it’s not death, I do it.”—Nancy Sardella

Amy Frelinger, one of my class participants, came in one afternoon exasperated about an experience she had at the grocery store. She had seen an older woman in the produce section looking over the artichokes. The woman picked up one, then another, of the vegetables, turning them around and around in her hands, frowning. Noticing Amy watching her, she smiled and said, “I don’t know how to cook these, do you?” Amy said that she did, and gave her some simple directions on how to steam the artichoke and then eat it with melted butter.

Another woman overheard the conversation and chimed in with the suggestion that she dip it in herb salad dressing. Soon there were several people making suggestions on different ways to cook artichokes, encouraging the woman to try it. The woman listened and seemed to enjoy the conversation, but eventually put the artichoke back, saying, “I’m just not sure about this.”

Amy was aghast. She was incredulous that the woman couldn’t take the risk to cook an artichoke. “It only cost $1.49!” she exclaimed. “How big a risk could it be?”

Step outside your comfort zone today. Take a risk. You don’t have to quit your job, get divorced or move to another country yet. Practice with little risks. Shop at a different grocery store. Drive a different route to work. Try out a new restaurant. Watch a foreign film with subtitles. Cut your hair. Go to a concert. Sleep on the other side of the bed.

Cook an artichoke.

Today’s Affirmation: “I relish new experiences that enrich my life!”

I give this exercise in my workshop – to make some little changes. Simple ones like part your hair on the other side (feels really weird), put your other shoe on first (didn’t know you did it the same every day did you?), or change the way you put the toilet paper on the toilet paper holder (if you always have it going over the top, put it so the paper comes out underneath).

Truly compulsive behavior is changing the toilet paper in other people’s homes (and yes, I’ve done that).

It took me awhile to figure out that there were some people in class who had no trouble changing things up. They didn’t have many routines at all, and never did things the same way twice. So the exercise never made them feel awkward or out of sync.

When I figured that out, after giving the exercise instructions, I asked if anyone found that an easy exercise because they were always changing things? Several people smiled and nodded, exclaiming that they never did the same thing.

“Well, don’t feel so smug,” I said, “because you’re going to do the opposite exercise. I want you to invent a routine of seven or eight steps and do that same routine every morning without any changes.”

“Oh, no!” they moaned and groaned and complained, just like the others who had to mix it up.

Once a man who was very ordered and compulsive went home and changed all the toilet paper rolls in his home and at work. It drove him crazy every day, and when he came to class, he reported how it upset him to have his routine broken that way.

His wife, who was one of the creative never-do-it-the-same-way-twice types, looked at him in amazement and said, “Honey, I didn’t know you did that!”

I tell them then that if they can’t change a little thing like the toilet paper, how are they going to change a big thing like their money? Take a look at what you are resistant to changing, and also where you never make a decision about the best way to do something. Both the ability to change and the ability to set a routine are important to establishing a good relationship with money. You need some structure, and some flexibility.

Where do you get stuck? In the structure or in the changes?–Chellie

“Be Careful What You Don’t Ask For…”


I just posted a new article to the archives on the Abundance page of my website and thought I would share it here. It’s a great story written by Chellie Campbell (www.Chellie.com), taken from her The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations publication, and titled…

“Be Careful What You Don’t Ask For–You Might Not Get It”  by Chellie Campbell

Oh, I really don’t want to focus on money, said the woman on the phone. A successful executive who worked in training and development for a major corporation, we had met at a networking meeting. She was very interested in my work since she was also in the business of helping people through training, but balked at the idea of taking a class centered on money. Her main goal was to help people and do meaningful work, she said.

I often encounter this same idea, stated in different ways, which comes from the root belief that the pursuit of money for its own sake is inappropriate, and maybe even bad (remember “the love of money is the root of all evil”). I’ve heard many, many people say, “I don’t care about the money,” or “The money isn’t important to me.”

What they are trying to make clear is that they have a larger objective, a goal of helping others or doing work they love that transcends their need for money.Unfortunately, that is not what they say. Words are powerful. When they speak their word that they don’t care about money, what they are inadvertently doing is telling their creative mind, God, and the universal power of supply not to send money. Their need to state it this way is indicative that they have a fear-based mentality about money; they are afraid that somehow, if they make a lot of money, it will corrupt them, pull them off course, make them a slave to material things, etc.

 The universal power of supply that is directed by our creative minds is just a “Yes” machine. Tell it you want money, it says “Yes.” Tell it you don’t want money, it says “Yes.” Your choice.

Why not declare instead that “I really want to help and serve people, and making a lot of money will help me do that even better?”  Money is neutral–in and of itself it is neither good nor bad. Only the way it’s used can be judged in that way. You have the power to decide to use the money that flows into your possession for good: Donate to charity, expand your work to help more people, beautify your surroundings, give to the arts, invest in worthy businesses doing socially responsible work.

Do care about the money! My belief is that all the truly spiritual, wonderful people should have lots and lots of money, because they are the ones who will use it most positively.You have to have some money in this world in order to live. Why not have lots of money in order to live well?

Today’s Affirmation: “I help and serve people and make a lot of money, which I then use to help and serve people!”

“It is a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.”–Albert Camus
