Advice from Abraham, animals as humans, GMO shopping guide & labeling, and more


PICKS OF THE DAY:

Here’s some great “advice” from Abraham on how to make the evolution process easier…

“If we were standing in your physical shoes, we would do these things everyday and then anything else you have time for.

We would meditate for 15 minutes, every day.

Which means we would quiet our mind with the simple intention of allowing our cork to float

We would go outside, no matter what the weather, and we would move around in it in appreciation of this planet. We would look up and around and we would find things to acknowledge, and we would talk about them right out loud.

Esther walks through her gardens and says to everything, “You are my favorite. You are my favorite. You are my favorite. You are my favorite.

You are my favorite stone on the pathway. You are my favorite bird in the tree. You are my favorite flower in bloom. You are my favorite flower not in bloom. You are my favorite tree. You are my favorite bush. You are my favorite frog. You are my favorite frog, you kept me awake all night, but you are still my favorite frog.”

So, first thing meditate, second thing spend more time outside.

Third thing, we would buy a notebook. We would call it my book of positive aspects and we would fill at least three, four, five is even better, pages of positive aspects. Five different subjects and write the positive aspects of it, training your vibration into that upward place.

And then there is one last thing, that if we were standing in your physical shoes, we would do every single day.

We would look upward and outward, best if you do it outside or standing at a window, and we would acknowledge that there are universal forces that are focused right at you.

We would acknowledge, by calling it by name, if you have a name that you like, and we would say, “I acknowledge that I am the object of your positive attention and I am appreciating your continual gaze on behalf of my well-being. And today, no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter whom I am doing it with, I will be in conscious awareness that you too are there with me. Appreciating me, supporting me, assisting me, acknowledging me, inspiring me, guiding me, having fun with me, acknowledging me, supporting me, assisting me, inspiring me, helping me, guiding me, aware of me, loving me, showing me, inspiring me, guiding me, helping me, uplifting me, showing me….

Get into an endless loop of that acknowledgement and watch what begins to happen in your life as soon as this day.

Your Vortex is filled to the brim with specific request that you have put there and you are deserving of the realization of. And it is time for those realizations to be flooding into your experience at a rate that will astonish those who surround you.. It is time for you to remember what you have put there and to bring it forward, active into your today experience.” Abraham-Hicks – Sacramento, 2013

And nothing eases the evolutionary process like a good laugh, so my “Pick # 2” is something to lighten your mood…..animals doing a good job of being human.

But I like this kind of news!

# 5 – Interesting perspective…

This “underdeveloped” country is not inappropriate in any way. It has different desires and different standards, and it is not lesser than — it is just different. We did not all come to do it the same way. We did not all come to be alike. We came as a diverse bunch of Non-Physical Energies wanting different experiences.—Abraham

Wi-fi experiment, interesting point of view, chocolate walnut ice cream, Anita Moorjani and Abraham


TIPS FOR THE DAY:

# 1- Here’s a blog post that focuses on one of the most helpful tools from Access Consciousness…..seeing everything as just an “interesting point of view.” This one simple tool and the shift in consciousness it provides can be life-changing. Really!

http://strategicboardessentials.com/blog/2012/12/26/interesting-point-of-view

# 2 – Wow, if you use a cell phone (I think I’m the only person left on the planet who doesn’t) or have wi-fi in your house or work environment, here’s something you should see…

BTW, be sure to read my blog post titled EMFs, Your Health & Vibes Up for some ingenious ways to help off-set radiation from cell phones, wi-fi, cars, etc.

# 3 – Check out this yummy and nutritious dessert recipe I recently featured on my Self-help Health blog that could actually help you prevent Alzheimer’s.  Sort of like having your cake (in this case ice cream) and eating it, too? :-)

http://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2013/05/27/ice-cream-good-nutrition-yes/

# 4 – Don’t worry, be happy…

“When we’re true to ourselves, we become instruments of truth for the planet. Because we’re all connected, we touch the lives of everyone around us, who then affect others. Our only obligation is to be the love we are and allow our answers to come from within in the way that’s most appropriate for us.

Finally, I can’t stress enough how important it is to enjoy yourself and not take yourself or life too seriously. One of the biggest flaws with many traditional spiritual systems is that they give you such a somber outlook. Although you know that I abhor creating doctrines, if I ever had to create a set of tenets for a spiritual path to healing, number one on my list would be to make sure to laugh as often as possible throughout every single day—and preferably laugh at myself. This would be hands down over and above any form of prayer, meditation, chanting, or diet reform. Day-to-day problems never seem as big when viewed through a veil of humor and love.

In this age of information technology, we’re bombarded with news seemingly at the speed of light. We’re living in an age of high stress and fear, and in the midst of trying to protect ourselves from everything we think is “out there,” we’ve forgotten to enjoy ourselves and to take care of what’s inside.

Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to this universe, and the memories we leave behind when we someday exit this world will be our legacy to our loved ones. We owe it to ourselves and to everyone around us to be happy and to spread that joy around.

If we can go through life armed with humor and the realization that we are love, we’ll already be ahead of the game. Add a box of good chocolates into the mix, and we’ve really got a winning formula!” Anita Moorjani from Dying To Be Me ♥

# 5 – And a little stimulation from Abraham to end on…

“We would never move forward in the face of negative emotion. There are many people who would teach you otherwise. They say you’ve got to face fear to get over it. And all they do is desensitize themselves to the point that they get themselves into situations where they have no idea what’s going on, and the end of them comes rather abruptly… And then everyone calls them brave.”—Abraham

Bucky knows best, new use for cotton, Miracles Manual, lunar eclipse, and Eckhart Tolle


TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – I guess this tip could be titled “Bucky Knows Best!” :-)

 

# 2- Yea! More good news for the environment about an innovative way to clean up oil spills…

# 3 –  You can sign up for a free pdf of Dr. Joe Vitale’s Miracles Manual here…

http://www.miraclesmanual.com/

# 4 – Great input from Eckhart Tolle…

“Another benefit of the practice of body awareness is a great strengthening of the immune system. The more consciousness you bring into the body, the stronger the immune system becomes. It is as if every cell awakens and rejoices. The body loves your attention. It is also a potent form of self-healing. Most illnesses creep in when you are not present in the body. If the master is not present in the house, all kinds of shady characters will take up residence there. When you inhabit your body, it will be hard for unwanted guests to enter.”

It is not only your physical immune system that becomes strengthened; your psychic immune system is greatly enhanced as well. The latter protects you from the negative mental-emotional force fields of others, which are highly contagious. Inhabiting the body protects you not by putting up a shield, but by raising the frequency vibration of your total energy field, so that anything that vibrates at a lower frequency, such as fear, anger, depression, and so on, now exists in what is virtually a different order of reality. It doesn’t enter your field of consciousness anymore, or if it does you don’t need to offer any resistance to it because it passes right through you. Please don’t just accept or reject what I am saying. Put it to the test.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, from The Power of Now

# 5 – And an update from Henry Seltzer at astrograph.com about the lunar eclipse and other astrological happenings…

Friday evening’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse is an exciting one, the last of three eclipses in this early spring time frame, taking place just a few days following the most recent installment of the perfect square between Uranusand Pluto in Cardinal signs, and strongly highlighting as well both Saturn andNeptune in close trine with each other. All four outer planets including Saturnare therefore very much emphasized at this time. Those born with sensitive points in their natal chart at around 4-12 degrees of any sign are most directly affected, as one or more of these powerhouse planets will likely square, conjunct or oppose such placements. As far as Sun Sign, this means everyone born within a few days of the first of the month, either at nearly the end or in the first few days of his or her birth month. Pretty much everyone will feel the intensity to some extent as we head into another summer of UranusPluto, the hallmark in fact of this entire decade that I like to call the “Turbulent Teens.”

All four of these planetary archetypes connote the difficult acceptance of a process of radical change, although from different angles. Saturn, the farthest planet actually visible without instrumentation and the only one known to the ancients, works upon you by a process of extreme limitation. You see clearly where your responsibility lies, and there is no escape. This seems dire, but certainly at times circumstances do conspire to inform us that there is one path for us to take, one way out, and although not necessarily pleasant it will be the road with the long-term reward of lessons learned and wisdom regained for the next stage of our journey.

Neptune is found in forming trine to Saturn — and at the focal point of a close T-square from this eclipse Sunand Moon in opposition to each other. While the trine aspect ameliorates the collision of values represented by this combination, these energies are basically antithetical. Neptune, extremely emphasized by this lunar eclipse, has an intensely transformative component just as Pluto has, and works by dissolving situations that it no longer makes sense to hold onto. This is potentially a very idealistic, and also confusing period, with a tendency for spacing out. You are distracted by the ineffable potential, far beyond the physical. You might be required to simply hold on, putting one foot ahead of the other, without really understanding where your road is leading you, trusting in the guidance of the surrounding universe to somehow get it right when your own sense of existing knowledge fails you. There is a mystery invoked, and an implicit reminder that we do not know the whole truth, perhaps not even a very sizable portion of the truth, of what we are facing and of what we are actually all about.

Then there is Uranus the enlightener as well as the trickster, surprising us constantly and providing a deeper sense of intuition than conscious awareness affords. A sense of what you are going through is available by this occult means, even as you resist it. The secret here is to remain as open as you can to possibility. Plutocombines with Uranus to blast away the impediments to getting on with necessary changes, either by a sense of inevitable realization, or, once subtlety has failed to move you, by more extreme measures. The negativity implied by Saturn wants to make this about difficulty: “I can’t wait for this to be over.” But the wise person deep inside you knows that, somehow, all this pain is the ache of birth and has underlying it the tenderness of dawning delivery.

The Sabian symbols for this Lunar Eclipse Sun and Moon reflect back on the outer planet energies with which they also strongly connect. For the Sun, in the fifth degree of Gemini, we have: “A radical magazine” for which Marc Edmond Jones states: “This is a symbol of the necessary element of change in human affairs, and of the extent to which the remote and … the entirely potential … will have its full and functioning part in any immediate reality with which an individual may be seeking to come to terms.” The opposite degree is the fifth ofSagittarius, “An old owl in a tree” for which he references: “deeper and private potentialities,” while Dane Rudhyar adds that “the owl functions lucidly in the night aspect of existence.” I also like the way that Robert Hunter puts all of this: “Row, Jimmy, row. / Gonna get there, I don’t know. / Seems a common way to go – / Get down and row, row, row, row, row.”

So while the road is rocky and the height to which it leads more than a bit cold and bleak, it is comforting to recognize that the path that the cosmos is now asking you to tread will prove long-term rewarding, and ultimately necessary for your continued well-being.

Peace, magic mushrooms, sustainable man, Arc of Light, and Abraham


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Something to keep in mind…

# 2 – Oh I love hearing news like this! Not only are we starting to recognize theamazing healing properties of certain mushrooms, it turns out that little schroomies could be the eco-friendly answer to some major environmental issues…

http://screen.yahoo.com/more-than-mere-magic-mushrooms-28923764.html

# 3 – For the next 24 hours you can experience Arc of Light for free (BTW, I’m listening to it as I type this and it’s lovely!)…

This personal attunement music was conceived and performed around the Spring vernal equinox, on which day and night are of equal length. This highly charged event represents the continued rebirth of nature, both physically and spiritually. The intent of Arc of Light is to remind ourselves of our connection to our higher source and our need to heal and uplift the consciousness of the universe.

This bio-sonic music is performed on sacred global instruments and and is tuned and correlated to the lower and upper octaves of electro magnetic radiation. This incorporates color (light), fragrance, as well as the movements of the planets and other geo-physical phenomenon. By utilizing instruments for their psycho-spiritual properties, Brian is able to elicit the power of emotion, resonance and entrainment, thus developing a synergistic approach to bring about the coherence of our Human Energy Field.

This Bio-Sonic music can re-pattern our brains and nervous system, as well as the endocrine glands and corresponding chakras.  Arc of Light acts as a wave guide for consciousness with the power to slow down of time and increase our awareness of our true selves.

This Bio-Sonic album comes in 2 parts, both 30 minutes long. Today you can hear one part, Passage of Peace, for FREE

The album contains no brainwave entrainment – can be heard anytime, anyplace …and by anyone!

To listen for free (next 24 hours), just go here.

# 5 – And a little Abe to end on….

When you are really in the flow with your Inner Being, ideas come easily—they are implemented easily. It’s fun while you are in the process of them, and it doesn’t matter how they unfold; and nothing can go wrong, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t get it done, it’s just fun to do it. Your Inner Being feels no limit. So, anything that feels like limits is something that you have self-imposed.—Abraham

# 3 – We’re in the middle of an extraordinarily potent and transformative time period, astrologically-speaking, and to help explain why,  here’s some info from Chris Flisher of http://www.chrisflisher.com about…

“The Time of the Signs”

As we enter into an intense period of forthcoming planetary activity we will have the perfect opportunity to see if the outer planets do, in fact, hold sway over our evolution. This poses an interesting question, especially for those who are on the fence about astrology. It may be easy to cast off astrology as silly, but what happens when it is accurate? What happens when you read your weekly report and it happens to be true? How do you explain themes in your life? And how can an astrologer know so much detail about you with a few simple facts about time and place? What then?

Astrologers were talking about many of our current events over two decades ago when we saw the entry of Pluto into Capricorn as a time when many of our biggest, most trusted structures would, in fact, crumble and either be rebuilt, or vanish. Things we once thought of as unshakeable have come under duress and are now falling down. This is classic Pluto in Capricorn activity. Pluto is the great transformer and, when in Capricorn, a cardinal earth sign, we can expect (as predicted) that large structures, institutions, and foundational entities to fall away and are no longer the secure structures we once thought. We have seen this repeatedly over the last decade as the banking industry, the government, the church, and other large institutions have come under much tighter scrutiny as they show their true colors with so much hidden, for so many years. We were duped. However, the truth always prevails. This is a universal fact and not the credo of any religious, political or philosophical view. Truth is basic and common to all. So where does that leave us?

This planetary activity is accompanied by the presence of Uranus in the sign of Aries. Since Aries is a cardinal sign (fire) it sits in a 90 degree angle to Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth). If we look at the astrology chart or wheel we see the current lineup of planets. Pluto is at 90 degrees to Uranus. This geometric relationship represents a challenge, or a step up. The 90 degree angle is one of the basic elements of architecture and all human structure. A simple set of stairs are constructed with 90 degree angles. The step is the best way to envision the challenges. As we move up the stair, lifting ourselves, we make progress through work and forward, upward motion. This is astrology.

What is the role of the planets in our daily lives? Many believe that they do nothing, and yet they are the only real constant that we have in our cosmic neighborhood. They have been there forever and their position does correlate with history, cycles, and recurring themes. In their inter-relationship we begin to see patterns that suggest a logical order and a predictable timing of events. When the Sun and Moon move into the sign of Cancer this summer we will again see another 90 degree angle of cancer (cardinal water) to Aries (cardinal fire) and opposing Pluto at 180 degrees. Events are triggered by the sharp angles and again, we take a step.

This is also true when an astrology chart is cast, based on birth date/place/time. Themes do exist in our lives and they are apparent from the time of our birth. We are born with characteristics, personalities, assets and liabilities, all of which, present us with unique challenges and opportunities. Whether we choose to acknowledge them in terms of time and place is the line between what we see as real and that which we see as impossible. When we stretch our minds to entertain that which may appear unlikely, we may be surprised by a universal logic that supersedes our limited view. This is verifiable each and every week as we see events unfold in a pattern related to the motion of our universe. This is the time of the signs.

Week of May 6th     

A dramatic week ahead as a new Moon Solar eclipse occurs at 19 degrees Taurus. Eclipses bring all sorts of corrections and surprises our way. This particular eclipse finds fiery Mars, talkative Mercury, and of course our emotional well-spring, the Moon, deep in the middle of the Taurus event. We can expect the rhetoric to be quite inflaming and even hostile. Again, stubborn is the word. Cold, hard facts are immoveable. This is an incredibly fervent area where the problems that brought us here may have come to a screeching halt. The train is coming off the tracks and the responsibility lies in the hands of the large banks. They must be held accountable for the economic mess they have wrought on the world’s financial security. The bubble has been falsely inflated and we may wake up to find that the bubble has popped. What does that look like? How does this machine keep on working? Will there be transparency? How do we repair this?

(For more about this eclipse period and how it may be impacting your particular sun sign, check out Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone, a tip I got by way of Kaneitha at Heavenly Guidance.)

# 4 – A heart-warming story of the difference one person made in two dogs lives and a way you can support the cause…

http://www.care2.com/causes/mother-dog-and-her-puppy-saved-by-american-diplomat-near-congo-river.html

#  5 – And from Abraham…

“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

(FYI, writing a vision is a great way to line up the energy. See my Visioning page for more on how this process can help you create more of what you want in life.)
