# 3 – Ah so….












# 4 – A thought-provoking post from Tama Kieves along the lines of “less doing, more being”….

The Universe Wants to Talk to You: Do You Want to Listen?

The ego has a thousand goals. Are they really yours?

The fast-track Western world reveres productivity, measured by what we “get done.” But I invite you to consider becoming undone, letting go of ill-fitting self-definitions, freeing yourself from beliefs and patterns, becoming naked, available, and present to your present life. The Universe wants to talk to you. Do you want to listen?

Sometimes you have to stop scoring points in the life you have in order to win at the life you desire.  A Course in Miracles teaches, that “the vision of one world will cost you the vision of another.” Albert Einstein said the same thing: “You cannot solve the problem at the level of the problem.” Are you so busy maintaining the structures of your existing life, that you can’t hear when Great Love is calling your name?

We don’t always realize what we’re not getting done by getting things done.

The other day, I decided to give myself a mini-retreat on my back porch. I’d hurt my neck so I thought maybe I should drop my tasks and spend the day listening to my body and myself. Immediately I heard a perky voice within dictating glamorous, acceptable ways to relax. Maybe you should go to a spa and get a hot stone massage. Hey, you could read that new book about scaling your business. Since you’re not on the computer today, why not organize your meditation space? Even in the domain of my time off, I had a checklist waiting to devour me. I spent the day in a ratty tee shirt instead, “doing nothing,” being, listening, and receiving. It was one of the most productive days I’ve had in a while.

You can sign up for your free copy here.


# 6 – This reminds me of how they say we try to make God into our image, instead of the other way around….

When that which is god — or that which is that which man wants to call “God” — is being understood by man, man has to translate it into the format he understands. But this Energy, this Source that man is giving the label of “God”, cannot be quantified in anything that man understands. And as man attempts to do it, the distortions are enormous.—Abraham

# 2 – Some stimulation on the subject of anger…..

Anger Is Good by Colin Tipping of Radical Forgiveness

Anger scares people. Men especially are frightened of it because they fear they might lose control and hurt someone if they allow themselves to really feel it.

David Hawkins, MD., PhD., the author of Power vs Force, put anger fairly high on the list of his Scale of Consciousness. He says that, so long as it can be given expression and is not repressed, it is good because it spurs into us action. It is a creative emotion.

At the same time, it can cause great damage if not properly controlled and managed. Knowing how to control one’s anger without denying it or suppressing it is, therefore, of paramount importance.

Radical Forgiveness can help.

The best working definition of an emotion is a thought attached to a feeling. Which comes first depends on the type of stimulus, but my guess is that in most cases it is the thought that causes the chemical reactions in the body that we register as the feeling.

The emotion is the result of cause and effect. The thoughts are the cause and the feelings are the effect.

The feelings themselves happen automatically and are beyond our control. What we do have dominion over, however, since they are the cause, are our thoughts.

This means the key to managing our emotions is to consciously monitor what passes through our mind. Then, be open to thinking in ways that will.

# 3 – And this fit nicely with Tip # 2…..

Anger is a river. It wants to be released into the vaster ocean. It wants to move naturally. When we repress it with premature forgiveness, block it with false positivity, repress it in the name of pseudo-peace, we just dam(n) our natural flow. The river then turns inward, against the self, or explodes outwardly, against innocents. Better we express it when it is in our awareness- not in a way that is destructive to humanity- but in a way that is authentic and that restores the integrity of our being. Anger isn’t the enemy. Misplaced anger is. Let the river flow.– Jeff Brown


# 4 – Great idea….Check out Patricia’s Photo Play Therapy….pictures to “get your mind off stress and focused more on joy.”


# 5 – Something free from Mindvideos.com you might be interested in. I haven’t watched the video yet myself, but plan to over the weekend…..

Mind Videos is offering access to a full length “subliminal manifestation video” called “Going Deep.” This video will open up your mind and start improving your life by slowly altering your subconscious… and it’s yours absolutely FREE.

Here is some information about what goes into these videos:

Visualization is a proven process that involves using powerful images, thoughts and emotions to attract what you most desire. It is imperative to tie the visualizations with an emotional state to truly affect your subconscious and these videos use sequences related to the desired outcome to ensure the right state of mind and right emotional connection.

All Empowered Mind Videos feature a 3D spatial soundtrack that will induce a meditative state. It is absolutely vital that your mind is not distracted in order for the visual and audio cues to work.

Binaural beats are part of the brainwave entrainment phenomenon and were first discovered in the mid 1800’s. These tones work directly on the frequency levels of your brainwaves. 

Subliminal commands are suggestions delivered to you from outside of your consciousness. Although similar to affirmations, subliminal commands are spoken to you, written in the third person and are not for you to repeat aloud to yourself. Subliminal commands are a more effective format when combined with meditative audio and video.

You can sign up to access the free Mind Video here.


# 6 – And from Abe….

There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance… and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you. This Stream is as abundant as your ideas allow it to be.—Abraham

Struggle, less thinking, Letting Go e-book, Living In Oneness, and Abraham



# 1 –  An insightful article from Dr. Robert Anthony on struggle….

We are conditioned to believe that life is supposed to be hard. It
was designed to struggle. Struggle means you are courageous
and strong.

Struggle is like taking a cross country trip in your car with the
emergency brake on. You may get there, but you are burned out at
the end, and you missed most of the fun sights on the way.

As it turns out, struggle is highly overrated.

We hear inspirational stories about people who have “struggled
against all odds” to become successful. How often do we hear
positive things about the people who are successful because they
DO NOT struggle?

Struggle is life’s treadmill.

The need to struggle and effort to get what we want is an illusion,
and like all other illusions (or assumptions) by their very nature
they keep us from seeing the truth that’s right before us.

Struggle is trying to rearrange the world so that it aligns with
the way you think it should be. It is the greatest source of
unhappiness in our world today. It happens when you focus on what
you perceive you don’t have, instead of embracing what you do have.

We live in a time of striking contrasts. There is tremendous
prosperity for some and outrageous poverty for others. We have so
much available to us, yet we continue to strive for more and more.

So what’s going on? We must change our paradigm and see abundance
as a mind set. Abundance is waking up to the reality that you are
already the person you yearn to become and that you already have
everything you need in this moment.

The denial or more accurately the resistance to who you really are
is what keeps you struggling. Abundance is about falling in love
with WHOM and WHERE you are. It is focusing on all that you have
and not losing yourself in all that you don’t have. In the end it
is this thought that allows you to create anything you desire.

Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress – IF YOU LOOK FOR IT!  No matter how
large or small, make note of it. It will only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.


# 2 – And I’ve featured this before, but I really like it and it is from Dr. Anthony and goes so well with his article in Tip # 1.  Supposedly it’s one of his favorite affirmations….

With that affirmation, say to yourself, “The universe is
yielding to me. Good things are lined up for me. All good things
come to me. There is not a reason in the world for me to worry.
When I worry it is nothing more than old patterns of thought that
have nothing to do with my ability to create what I desire. I have
nothing to worry about.  Everything comes to me at the right time
in the right way. I figure it out as I go.  I don’t need to know,
I figure it out as I go”.

# 3 – And this seemed to fit perfectly with # 2….


# 4 – I haven’t checked this out myself yet, but a friend e-mailed me about it and I thought I would pass along the tip…


The Letting Go Ebook, Free

Posted: 30 Apr 2014 07:11 AM PDT

By Leo Babauta

Today marks 41 years of wonderful life that I’ve lived, and as a birthday present to all of you, I’m publishing a free ebook: The One Skill: How Mastering the Art of Letting Go Will Change Your Life.

Last year I started a tradition of giving people gifts on my birthday, to celebrate the fact of being alive, and my gratitude for those in my life — I published the Little Book of Contentment for free a year ago.

This year I continue the tradition with my new ebook on letting go: The One Skill.

It’s about learning the skill of letting go, and how that will help you with every problem in your life. From stress to procrastination to habit change to loss and much more.

It’s an amazing skill, and the better I get at it, the better I am at life, the happier I am.

You can download the book for free here: The One Skill ebook (pdf).

I’ve also exported it as an epub (download) but not tested it yet. And here’s the mobi file for Kindle & other ebook readers (thanksDaniel Pavey!).


#5 – And here’s a free event from Humanity’s Team University to check out….

Living In Oneness Summit

Wednesday, May 7 to Sunday, May 18
Multiple Programs Each Day

If Oneness is Ultimate Reality, let’s
Learn it, Live it & Love it in All Parts of Our Life

Receive a Oneness eBook when you register!

The Living in Oneness Summit  is just around the corner and free of charge. 

It is our destiny to live this way but rather than take the arduous path why not take a shortcut? The problem in taking a shortcut is that different authors and speakers connect with different audiences. There is no single author or wisdom source who speaks to everyone. This is why the Living in Oneness Summit has reached out to over 24 of the most respected authors and wisdom sources we know to be part of the 2014 program. Each brings different wisdom but each is respected as an authority on living in Oneness in one or more parts of our life. Some are well known and others you will be so grateful you are meeting for the first time.

Hear Evolutionary Leaders Neale Donald Walsch, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Bruce Lipton, James O’Dea, Nina Meyerhof, and Barbara Fields, among the 35 inspiring speakers who are part of this year’s program.

See the entire program and list of speakers! 


# 6 – And from Abraham….

Source never wields vengeance or offers punishment, for Source understands you are valuable; you are worthy; you are blessed. Source understands that you never get it done and you cannot get it wrong, and that even when you stand in a place that currently feels wrong, ultimately you will return to what feels right. You can return now to what feels right with an adjustment of your thought process and an adjustment of your vibration and a changing of your point of attraction and a finally letting in of the Well-Being that is flowing to you always.—Abraham

# 4 – If you missed the special DNA Love Activation from Jo Dunning, the replay is now available. Haven’t checked it out myself yet, but I plan to….

We are happy to let you know the replay of the special DNA Love Vibration Activation last night that Jo offered as a gift, is now available on the website homepage at jodunning.com.

This event offered an activation of an aspect of your DNA that regulates the experience of Love.  This activation expands your capacity to feel very loved and to experience unconditional love in return.

# 5 – Being “selfish” may just be the most self-less thing you can do/be….

If we were standing in your physical shoes, that would be our dominant quest: Entertaining Yourself, pleasing Yourself, connecting with Yourself, being Yourself, enjoying Yourself, loving Yourself. Some say, “Well, Abraham you teach selfishness.” And we say, yes we do, yes we do, yes we do, because unless you are selfish enough to reach for that connection, you don’t have anything to give anyone, anyway. And when you are selfish enough to make that connection—you have an enormous gift that you give everywhere you are.—Abraham

# 6 – And from Abraham….just keep asking yourself what it is you do want….

As you look for a better-feeling way to approach whatever you are giving your attention to; as you continue to ask yourself from your ever-changing vantage point, “What is it that I do want?”… Eventually you will be standing in a very pleasing place—for you cannot continually ask yourself what it is that you do want without your point of attraction beginning to pivot in that direction. The process will be gradual, but your continued application of the process will yield wonderful results in only a few days.—Abraham

# 6 – This is a really good one for me to remember…

A feeling of being overwhelmed is your indicator that you are denying yourself access to all manner of cooperation that could assist you if you were not disallowing them.

As you begin to feel freer regarding the expenditure of time and money, doors will open, people will come to assist you, refreshing and productive ideas will occur to you, and circumstances and events will unfold. As you change the way you feel, you access the Energy that creates worlds. It is there for your ready access at all times.—Abraham

# 5 – This is a good one to keep in mind from Abraham…

Your action has nothing to do with your abundance! Your abundance is a response to your vibration. Of course, your belief is part of your vibration. So if you believe that action is part of what brings your abundance, then you’ve got to unravel that.—Abraham

Ways To Start The New Year Out Right?



# 1 – Here’s an insightful post from Holistic Nutrition Coach Nancy Desjardins (www.healthlady.com) that may give you some ideas and inspiration for starting the new year off on the right foot….

10 Inspirational Ways to Start the New Year Out Right

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I’m really excited about the coming year and all of the possibilities in store for us! How about you? As I look back on this year, I’ve seen huge transitions in many areas of my life, but all in a positive way.

I know many of you can relate to this because of the changes you’ve gone through, too! That’s why so many of us are ready for the next chapter in our lives to begin. And, as the saying goes, “When one door closes, another opens.” So, 2014, here we come!

In 2014, I’ll be putting more energy around workshops and coaching online and offline, which will give me the chance to work on a deeper level with clients.

If you’re into astrology, you’re probably aware that we’re experiencing a rare phenomenon this month: the month begins on a new moon and ends on a new moon. Nadiya Shah, an astrologer here in Toronto, explained really well what this means:

“For two moons to take place in a single month is a powerful omen of beginning. The new moons represent ‘beginnings’ or ‘fresh starts’—they are the seeds that you plant. It’s the time to set intention into place now. It’s the time to take your journal out and start planting seeds for a beautiful harvest in the fall.”

I know that many of you have tried everything in the book to improve your health, but it’s not working. It may be that you’re stuck in another key area of your life, which is affecting your health and preventing you from moving forward.

That’s why I’m advising you to not feel pressured into starting a membership at a gym or joining a detox class on January 1. In all honesty, if you haven’t mastered the most simple, fundamental principles of health and wellness, you might be setting yourself up for yet another failure . . . been there, done that . . . I know how it feels.

Today, I just want to share 10 simple things you can do right now to remove some of the obstacles that are blocking your path to better health and wellness. You’ll see that reaching your goals is not just about “doing”; it’s a way of “being.”

10 Inspirational Ways to Start the New Year Out Right 

I’ve been a huge fan of Marc and Angel’s blog for some time now! I always get inspired when I read their blog posts; there’s so much truth in them.

Here are 10 of my favorite inspirational messages that we can all apply in our daily lives. I know that each of you will be able to relate to these messages in your own special way.

1. Start by asking yourself “how” or “what” questions such as, “how do I accomplish what I want?” or “what steps can I take to improve my situation?” And let’s stop asking ourselves self-defeating “why” and “when” questions, such as “why did this happen to me?” or “when will my bad luck end?” Those types of questions put you in the role of helpless victim and never serve you well. The truth is that life has its “ups” and “downs,” and we’re going to experience the “downs” at one time or another. But, what’s important is how we deal with them.

2. Learn to let GO of what wasn’t meant to be. Letting go is part of moving on to something better. You won’t get what you truly deserve if you’re too attached to the things you’re supposed to let go of. Sometimes you love, and you struggle, and you learn, and you move on. And that’s okay. You must be willing to let go of the life you had planned for yourself so you can enjoy the life that’s waiting for you. ”

3. Don’t wish your life away. The truth is that your whole life has been leading up to this moment. Think about that for a second. Every single thing you’ve gone through in life—every high, every low, and everything in between—has led you to this moment right now. This moment is priceless, and it’s the only moment guaranteed to you. This moment is your life so don’t miss it.

4. What are you tolerating? What in your current life are you just tolerating? What drains your energy or constantly bugs you? Start addressing these things one by one to make room for the new, good stuff coming your way.

5. Get rid of clutter. This means not only physical clutter but also the clutter of too many distractions, activities, and commitments that are sucking your time and energy.

6. Refine your relationships. Look at all of your close relationships, both personal and professional. Are there any that are draining you, upsetting you, or causing you problems? How can you release these people or change your relationship with them to make room for important, new relationships?

7. Reduce your commitments. This one has been very challenging for me but so rewarding. Our lives are so often cluttered with things that we need to do—at home, work, or school; in our religious or civic lives; with friends and family; with hobbies; and so on.

Take a look at each area of your life and write down all of the commitments you’ve made. Seeing it written down can be quite an eye-opening experience, as well as overwhelming. Then, look at each one and decide whether it really brings you joy and value, and if it’s worth the amount of time that you’re investing in it. Another way to reduce your commitments is to identify a few that you truly love, and get rid of the rest. Learn how to say “no” and decline offers. If you eliminate the things that don’t bring you joy or value, you’ll have more time for the things that you love!

8. Remember the importance of forgiveness. The importance of forgiveness has everything to do with your own well-being. Through forgiveness, you literally set yourself free! How does that work? When forgiveness takes place, we naturally release the disturbing thoughts and emotions that are draining our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The result is greater health and happiness, in addition to the endless benefits that forgiveness brings.

9. Forget what everyone thinks and wants for you. One of the greatest freedoms you can experience is simply not caring what everyone else thinks of you. Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself who you are and what you want to be.

The best thing you can do is to follow your heart. Sometimes that means taking risks. Don’t just accept the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what others will think, or afraid of what might happen. If you do, nothing will ever happen. Don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big because they aren’t.

10. Life isn’t a race; you have nothing to prove to othersEveryone wants to get to the top of the mountain first and shout, “Look at me! Look at me!” But the truth is, all your happiness and growth occur while you’re climbing, not while you’re sitting at the top.

Enjoy the journey by paying attention to each step. Don’t rush through your life and miss it. Forget where everyone else is in relation to you. This isn’t a race. You get there a little at a time, not all at once. Let go of the foolish need to prove yourself to everyone else, and you’ll free yourself to accomplish what matters most to you. Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that you don’t have to always be and do what everyone else is being and doing.

“In this new year, may you have a deep understanding of your true value and worth, an absolute faith in your unlimited potential, peace of mind in the midst of uncertainty, the confidence to let go when you need to, acceptance to replace your resistance, gratitude to open your heart, the strength to meet your challenges, great love to replace your fear, forgiveness and compassion for those who offend you, clear sight to see your best and true path, hope to dispel obscurity, the conviction to make your dreams come true, meaningful and rewarding synchronicities, dear friends who truly know and love you, a childlike trust in the benevolence of the universe, the humility to remain teachable, the wisdom to fully embrace your life exactly as it is, the understanding that every soul has its own course to follow, the discernment to recognize your own unique inner voice of truth, and the courage to learn to be still.”    author- Janet Rebhan

Happy, Healthy New Year’s Tips & Picks!


Some feel good moments from 2013….


And some lovely singing set to wonderful images of animals and Nature….



# 1- What will/could 2014 be like if we all tap into that sense of child-like wonder, plus made an attitude of gratitude our priority for the new year?


 Gratitude Practice: Welcome the Wonder by Adela Rubio

Have you ever been smitten by the sight of a child caught in the rapture of wonder? It’s as if their whole being is captured by curiosity. If you notice their body it trembles with excitement and joy, and nothing exists but the object of their attention. Doesn’t the experience of it fill you with anticipation? Aren’t you just a little bit more alivened by their wonder, as if you’ve caught some of it yourself?

Wonder is contagious and it’s an ever expanding experience. The more you have, the more you receive.

What if instead of worrying about your problems you pondered the possibilities? What if you tapped into your inner child and allowed the inherent wonder of Life to infuse your being? How would your world be different if you welcomed wonder and not the worrisome voice of what’s wrong in your world?

The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass,
it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. —
Henry Miller

Your perspective of the world, including your tendency to worry, is a learned experience. You didn’t come in that way. You came in, just like that child, enraptured by the experience of being alive and amazed at the wondrous world around you.

Today, allow yourself to recover your receptivity to awe. Notice everything as if it you were experiencing it for the very first time – your spouse, your children, your work – everything can become magical when you see the spark of specialness eager to be experienced.

Wonder isn’t a happenstance occurrence, it is the very nature of your being. Free your wonder and wake up to the majesty of Life!

# 2- There’s no better time to write a vision than the beginning of the new year, so what are you waiting for?! Read my Visioning page for more about how writing a vision can help you in creating the life of your dreams.

# 3 – Another one from “Abe” that I just love. So good at whittling things down to the nitty gritty and what’s truly important.That last line might make a good mantra for 2014. :-)

Just do your best to keep yourself in balance. One of the first things that causes Energy misalignment, is asking or demanding too much of yourself in terms of time and effort. In other words, you just cannot burn the candle at both ends, so that you are physically tired, and then expect yourself to have a cheerful attitude. So, the rule of thumb has to be: “I’m going to be very, very, very happy, and then do everything I have time to do after that.”—Abraham

# 4 – How perfect that the new moon also falls on the first day of the new year! Here’s an excerpt from an article by Simone Butler at mooncircles.com about this potent cosmic period….

The Capricorn New Moon (Jan. 1, 3:14 a.m. PST) catalyzes a grand cross between Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. The planets involved represent strong yang forces, intensified by their presence in action-oriented cardinal signs. Do-or-die Pluto conjuncts the Sun, Moon and Mercury and exactly squares headstrong Mars. This forceful call for evolutionary change can prompt a fresh start, but it can also trigger antagonism and impatience if we’re not careful to channel it wisely.

Because this powerful energy colors the entire year ahead, we can expect 2014 to be a magnificent, make-it-or-break-it year. The good news is, if you’re inclined to cut ties with the past, launch new projects or begin running marathons, this alignment will give you the push you need. The bad news is, if you persist in clinging to old patterns or being less than your authentic self, you’re apt to suffer.

And thanks to real estate agent extraordinaire Ron Armstrong for passing this along,….it’s additional information from astrologer Brenda Bush about the new moon period and line-up of big energies …

It is time to set your intentions for this New Moon, plus, since it is the first day of the New Year, it is a good day to make your New Year’s resolutions. This is all with the help of Pluto’s intense focus and Saturn’s discipline. What you wish for you will get with a little hard work and lots of passion.
This Super New Moon brings the greatest power for change and it also brings the greatest instability. The instability forces weaknesses to the surface to bring about the changes that are required. It is a good idea to keep it simple and stay focused on your goals. Holding the energy and focusing into areas that are important for you is the way. The Grand Cardinal Cross is the energy of this New Moon. Cardinal signs represent turning points and a shift in energy. With all four signs activated it brings a force of energy that requires an inner focus. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Pluto in Capricorn are directing your behavior with the qualities of Capricorn. That is to follow your rules, appreciate tradition and do what you know. Mars is in Libra activating our cooperation and social skills. It may also be exposing our weakness or strength in relating with others. Jupiter is in Cancer teaching us about working together. We are not alone. Uranus is in Aries activating that primal energy in all of us to be who we were always meant to be. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are all the Cardinal signs and as you can see the Planets are positioning themselves in every one of them. You can’t avoid change, so direct it where you want the energy to go. Venus is retrograde in Capricorn at this time bringing to the surface deeper values. No matter what sign you are, this New Moon wants the best from you. We begin 2014 with lots of power to bring changes.

Happy New Year! May you have more peace, more joy, and a greater understanding of your true nature and inherent goodness in 2014!
