Be Empowered By Aroma Therapy

Aromatherapy: The use of fragrant botanical oils for physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.

From as early as 4,500 before the common era, essential oils (powerful, concentrated organic compounds extracted steam-distilled or cold-pressed from plant flowers, fruit, resins, roots and bark) have been recognized for their natural healing powers that promote health and well-being. Powers over physical ailments and powers over emotional issues. Their fragrances soothe, heal, and invigorate the mind and body. Aromas act on the deepest parts of the brain and the central nervous system to enhance mood and emotions to relieve depression and anxiety and restore emotional wellness.

Their chemical constituents include antioxidants which encourage radiant health when used correctly. They have antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic properties. With hundreds of vitamins and other compounds, essential oils act as adaptogens which promote homeostasis. Essential oils are non-greasy and require only a few drops to have tremendous effects on emotional well-being, physical health or spiritual mindfulness. They easily penetrate deeply into the skin such that simple topical use with a carrier oil stimulates healing throughout the body as the compounds journey within. Using focused medicinal massage techniques, they stimulate the nervous system to release congestion and re-balance areas of the body affected by stress. With absorption into the bloodstream, these oils ease aches, pains, injuries while enhancing cellular renewal, blood circulation and effective detoxification for deep healing.

It is said that the sense of smell reaches the soul faster than any other sense. After all, scripture tells us that “Life” was breathed into Man. So it stands to reason that inhalation of “prana” leads to an enlivening of the “soul” … even enlightenment! Add to that an exquisite aroma and you gain a recipe for triggering emotional and even physical responses to help transform moods and move through different states of mind.

In the following video, Dr. Josh Axe and Jordan Rubin discuss essential oils nicely:

As you may have learned, many of these essential oils have powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties that surpass pharmaceutical variants in that they do not leave behind nor generate dangerous toxins for the body to deal with eventually. Essential oils are truly gifts to us through Nature.

Check out what Vanderbilt Hospital found when they began incorporating aromatherapy in their emergency room space:

But remember, it is important to use them correctly! There is a lot of unfounded as safe information floating around due to the success of two referral marketing companies whose associated distributors have been leading the way to knowledge about these Gd-given miracles. Unfortunately, their sole interest is to convince as many others as possible to peddle as many oils as possible … even while making claims as to their use that may be false. Always seek the help of a competent, certified authority when you need answers to important questions. As a general rule, though you will find some authorities knowledgeable in the use of essential plant oils internally, it is not the method of use recommended by aromatherapists. Not to say that one should never take an botanical oil internally. Just be sure to be in direct consultation with a responsible, competent authority.

It should be known that there is an effort at this very moment to help raise finishing funds to complete an independent aromatherapy documentary that seeks to deepen dialogues, dispel myths, empower engagement and encourage informed relationships with essential oils and their use in aromatherapy. Watch this preview:

Commonly Used Essential Oils

There are many options to consider, but here are some popular ones:

  • Bergamot is a citrus-scented oil that helps lower stress and anxiety levels.
  • Cedarwood has a woody fragrance. While its scent can help you relax, it can also aid in respiratory problems.

  • Lemon not only increases energy and focus, but boosts your immune system and promotes healthy digestion.
  • Peppermint is energizing and refreshing, and it can improve concentration and help relieve headaches and nausea.
  • Rosemary is a stimulating essential oil that can boost mental activity and sharpen your focus. It’s also used to ease pain and cramping.

The Quest for Super Foods

The word superfood is a marketing term for food with supposed health benefits. The term is not commonly used by experts, dietitians and nutrition scientists, many of whom dispute that particular foods have the health benefits often claimed by their advocates. But whatever, their stance, there are certain foods which are jam-packed with nutrients and dense with quality. No doubt, incorporating such foods into your meal plans can trememndously impact your health for good! Of course, the key to a healthy diet is to consume a variety of nutritious foods in the right quantities.

“What You Eat Matters” is a new, life-changing documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet on our health, the environment and animals. Watch it:

SunFood3

Sergei Boutenko discusses the health benefits that come from introducing more greens into your diet. His extensive Study of plants along with the latest in scientific research makes it fun, easy, and safe to introduce mineral rich wild edibles into your diet.

If by chance you are interested in a dynamic whole-food formula that contains 19 vegan, organic and wild-crafted green superfoods – in addition to grasses, dark leafy vegetables, herbs, algae and sea vegetables – plus an amazing blend of enzymes in a specialized probiotic complex to aid normal digestive health and immune function, Sun is Shining™ works to provide your body with incredible nutrition, while simultaneously alkalizing and energizing your inner ecosystem. There is no other green superfood blend as robust and advanced as Sun is Shining™! It is suggested you give it a place along with your other nutritional provisions.

SiS

In any case, it should be more clear now that greens and other raw plant food edibles can transform the way you feel. That’s where the above nutritional supplement can come in handy. Not many of us have the time nor the resources to go outdoors, even to a vegetable garden, to collect nutrient rich leafy green edibles. So a shortcut is a good thing.

The view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience, is truly an inspiration and motivation. Listen to what the following elders have to say about what is important:

Even beyond nutrition, there are other considerations that need to be addressed. Always in all ways respect the gifts that life offers you.

Animated Living Enlivens

4923BE53-EDAB-4023-BBCF-C1E8A62B2FBD-1200x897[1]

No one I know is satisfied with a boring life. I can’t imagine anyone who would be! So what is it that holds some people from creating the life of their good dream? Perhaps they need to learn “the secret for acing life”? (i.e.: Always DO the thing you find the most emotionally difficult to do in whatever situation you find yourself in). Listen to Leo from Actualized.org

The emotionally challenged life sustains the actualization of intimacy with your being and leads to a richer, more rewarding life, with fulfillment and peace of mind. One way or another, you lead the way to where you’ll end up. Take charge of your life and be distinguished as yourself from all others. Animate your life! Write its story and play the part in your own “Emmy” “award winning” performance. Sometimes, even a little exaggeration will make you and others believe your seriousness about the situation. Take an example from The Maori:

I’m not saying you have to express yourself exactly that way, but you do have to instill within yourself the determination and will to succeed. After all, who decides what a meaningful life is to you? YOU Do! Your imagination can unlimitingly unlock amazing future unfoldings for you within your world.

life-animated-poster[1]

Of course, the animation of life that I am speaking about goes beyond the scenario viewed in the video and suggests that you “bring to life” your act of living and not go about it hazily, in a fog, but rather clear-headed with bearing. Meet your emotional challenges head on and be the one who activates and actualizes your being. From the most sensitive issue to the least, you’ll strengthen your conviction to reveal the real you. Whatever works for you, that you should be focused to do.

This is deliciously cool way to play … in an animated way!

Time waits for no one . . . Life goes on and passes like a shadow. Should ye not be doing the things that will cause you to live happy? Like I said before, write your story with a happy ending and play the role of the successful achiever . . . Whatever your goal, do the thing the most emotionally difficult for you to do and you’ll open the door to your well-deserved success. Become animated with love of your gifts in life. Those you bring as well as those given to you from others. Enliven your living through understanding its preciousness and your importance as part of the whole . . . You as a universe, your spirit in your body, your family, your community, our society . . . A small part yet a great asset.

96d660b2ac8087f1c4f9aae8f846ea83[1]

The road to an “enlivened” life is full of the unknown. But you can conquer the fear of it by having a good reason “why you must travel it”. How important is it for you to become . . .? Think well, generate the right feelings . . . and you will bring the results you desire.

It’s how you think that determines the happiness in your life. Use your power to control your estimate of things or occurrences and animate your thoughts to serve you well!

The Power of Unconditional Appreciation

It’s going to seem a lot like Abraham Hicks Day with this blog post so hang on. I get a “kick” out of their video excerpts. Esther Hick’s “channeling” of what sounds like valid information is worth spreadinging I think. I’m imagining that you can agree after already hearing some of the teachings and won’t mind the seeming repetition. Of course your comments after reading this post and any of the others are appreciated!

A lot of people question the efficacy of prayer. Can one be sure it’s worth the effort to pray if the prayer isn’t fit for the ears of “The Listener”. For eample, one’s heart is not as “in the moment” as it should be? What is “It” listening for? What is expected of you when standing before “The Almighty Creator” and how well do you feel about how you are doing that … The total “You” … in that position? Who are “You” anyway? Why would it matter to “It” to answer you? What would come out of granting your desire, need or want? That which sees the end at the beginning already foresaw the geneology of the matter whole! Where does this prayer of yours fit in?

Perhaps simply being a matter of your being an extension of “It’s” energy lends you the power to connect directly with “It” … your “Soul” within, and have a real “heart to heart”? A major point of this life experience is to expand upon that which was created before us and unknowingly develop it forward … continually. At least that what they bring down:

So I’ve learned that prayer at it’s best is an acknowledgement of who we are in relation to the scheme of “The Creation” with an appreciation of the knowledge that no matter what, “Source” has our “back” … “It” is with us in all manners of our being and simultaneously encouraging The Universe to favor our advancement at all times. We get back what we put in and have the benefit of internal guidance that leads toward expanded enlightenment! We just have to be open to it … allowing our minds to focus with greater and greater clarity on the things in our lives that we feel happy about … and there are or should be many. Once you set your point of attraction to daily experiences of appreciation … to recognition of the abundance which is yours in this life … giving thanks for the “gift” of this experience “Source” provides us with … first thing each morning in your wake up “ceremony”… feel the return of the energy you have come to know of as “YOU” in the world … And begin to unfold into newness:

“Thank you for this new opportunity to experience again the wonders of Your Universe and how it seems to me as if You relate to me as the center of it all … taking care to provide all of Your Creation with sustenance and “light” …  and I benefit by being able to use my environment as “the building blocks” from which to “build” a new reality for myself each step of my way … I recognize that thoughts help stir the creation of reality and lead up to what manifests.  I especially appreciate that what will unfold for me in my experience this day will also one way or another help me onto the path most suitable for me to get to where I need to be going … to help me get to where I want to be … in the most efficient way possible … Because it is You who is guiding me and things cannot possibly go wrong … at least in the sense that they’d be the wrong things to happen … even if I might have thought so when they happened … You know what I mean 😉 “.

So “Source” is the “expanded version” of us … Supreme alignment with well-being and the vibrationally improved version of us that we sifted out from our life experiences? Our only “work” is to tune in alignment with the new and improved version that we “carved out”? By going forward with the flow of our expansion and who we are becoming, that’s what is meant by following the call of “Source”?

Every single one of us is unique and a valuable part of the Universe. Every one of us! With the “birthing” of improved preferences, the larger part of  ‘Source Energy” turns its undivided attention to that improvement and the expanded Universe moves on! “Source” flows with improvement and the expansion of “It”‘s Creation. Worry is absolutely unnecessary. Allowance of the process is necessary … So is appreciation of the broader perspective with asking for improvements along the way … As well as feeling the power of the life experience and moving in the direction of the energy which creates worlds! We must focus our point of attraction on the “the call” of “Source” and flow with “It’s” Universal current of pure well-being. Acknowledge that within you is a guidance system … your feelings about things. Care about the way you feel and constantly train yourself into better and better feeling thoughts. This is the way you establish alignment with who you are constantly becoming … You are thus immersed in living a joyous life. You can say then that the power of unconditional appreciation has its perks, ehh?

The following exerpt is an example of an appreciative “rampage” in “The Vortex”:

And now for something completely different … Enjoy!

That is a fine example of a spiritual human “being” … in expression of a personally crafted physical experience … Fun, artful expression of talent beyond convention … Done skillfully with love … Rich, famous and loved by her fans. A heroine! It’s amazing how many successfully concluded transformations she made over time … each one expanding beyond the former while maintaining the dignity of her greatness all throughout … She put her soul fully in her “prayer” and incessant good, happy feeling into her actions.

We are all capable of so many myriad feats and forms of greatness it is beyond imagination. But we have to use courage to express it … like the folk hero that succssfully defeated the force of evil and gained victory for the good … It doesn’t happen without effort on our part … As we sift through the contrasts in our experience, we define more clearly what we are preferring in life … and “Source” boosts your “Inner Being” … your “soul” if you prefer, to be the better you. Much of the real beauty of this lies in the varied uniqueness each individual one of us brings through our “selves” to the mix of humanity.

It’s important to emphasize that life is an exploration into the unknown … Ideally guided by a sense of direction chosen by passionate discovery … To each his/her own driving, motivating force … combined with the expanding growth of the inner “being” … the “soul” … seeking to fulfill itself with joyous experience in this physical world. Prayer in its many forms joins our “souls” with their Source” to become “charged” with encouragement … I think.

We could examine the lives of many individuals to find that the reality of spirituality is strongly a part of our lives. But it seems to me to be unnecessary. After all, we are all basic, yet nonetheless powerful, creative, spiritual “Source” energy contained within a physical human vessel. The reason being a desire to expand the content of consciousness and to use it in defining better being … selfishly altruistic simultaneously.

I’ve heard that the feeling of love is your experience of Gd. When you move into the “absolute”, you move into love. The realm of the “relative” was created in order that we can experience our “selves” … Devised as “real” so that we can get to know our selves experientially with Gd contrived in such a way that it appears “Source” has created something other than “Itself”. “It’s” all that is, yet contracted and seeming as separate. Deep!

So there you have it! Unconditional love with a portal to personal greatness … You can choose to “be Gd” … You are The Master of You. Go forth mighty one and be … Be the better being you are. Ask for what you need along the way and it is given in the most appropriate manner for your benefit … with love. Remember, thoughts rooted in fear produce one kind of manifestation on the physical plane whereas thoughts rooted in love produce another kind of manifestation on the physical plane … Your thoughts decide which will happen. The “secret” of the relative world is to ignore the propensity to think with roots in fear and choose only thoughts rooted in love! In every instant, moment or circumstance.

As an aside, I think it’s funny how we’ve been lead to believe that Jewish Jeshu actually looked like the picture in the above video. 😀 … He was a Middle Eastern Jew! Darker skinned than a European to say the least. Anyway, just had to share that. Not that it matters really, but I bet he didn’t look like that. Anybody draw back then?  What if Vincent Barzoni was correct? Would that be so terribly wrong?

150383

LOL!

But that brings me to another thought. A deep one …

As far as Gd is imagined, we have no real idea what “That” looks like … “It” has no body, yet It is everything … and ONE. There is no separation and It can be recognized in everything yet sensually ephemeral and almost non-existent. It Is As It Is and will Be as It will Be. We have no say in the matter … We’re just extensions … But we have a manner in which we say … Thanks for this opportunity to emulate You! There’s power in every moment and blessings in disguise. Nothing happens by “accident”. We too are GREAT!

Go for it … All the best!

 

 

Oh Sweet Jane Where Hath Though Been?

Feeliing in the mood for an artful transformation?

There’s a lot of discussion of the use of Cannabis sativa for medicinal purposes as a nutritional supplement … Well, I’m totally in favor! You see, perhaps better, imagine you see … It is the plant that propelled me on to fields of study related to the uses of herbs, roots and spices in nutritional healing. Alas, those were good days! 😀 … Wouldn’t mind a “bush for buds” in my garden … just for the fun of it … and it’s health benefits on sanity! 😀 … Just joking wit ya … I’m sane without it for sure. I like more that there is growing evidence of it’s benefits against cancerous developments and that CBD dramatically reduces the frequency and severity of seizures in children and adults that suffer with intractable epilepsy. There’s a lot going on in the medical marijuana “field”:

Ralph Smart, Infinite Waters, has listed what he says are the “secrets” marijuana smokers won’t tell you … The videos are very entertaining:

Despite the evidence against alcohol, cigarettes, addictive substances, caffeine, sugar even and some pharmaceutical medicines, not one death in thousands of years has been attributed to sweet “Jane”! There is a more sinister plot at hand that “Mary” threatens:

The following is a forum discussion revealing what’s said to be the latest scientific findings, legilization and enforcement issues … how to weave marijuana and hemp back into American lives:

More research is necessary. We need to know the truth … The whole truth and nothing but the truth! Let’s not let the world go crazy! We have to be careful who has the right to set our policy, which ideally should be with the will of the people, not against it! Demonizing a Gd-given plant that offers such “good” vibrations for no good reason? What the heck!

This last video touched upon something quite scary that in case you missed it, you can get a deeper sense of what’s “up at stake” here:

Is this for real? The following report is of someone who says that she is “a targeted individual”. It’s unbelievable for lack of wanting to believe what she says … It’s scary. Could this be real?

Imagine that? NO! On second thought, rather not! Too intense a reality to experience.

Oh No! CIA Mind Control?

What’s the world come to? Is there any way to escape? As intense as all this is, those of us who want to “live”, in the fullest sense of the word, must find ways to access the benefits of what’s available without supporting the evil aspects of “the trade.” Did you also catch the statement, that cannabis has the ability to deter mind control? That’s good to know!

All this talk about manipulation is a bit unnerving. It is wise though to recognize the signs that identify it and “nip it in the bud” ASAP! So …

In truth it’s an inherent part of life in the way people do business. The art of persuasion is a large part of the sales industry and even has handy use in presenting oneself before employers and the like. But should never be used with evil intent. That is simply wrong … in any of our doings.

So, is hemp the most powerful plant on Earth? It sure serves a purpose … In fact, many!

For sure, I am not advocating mis-use of the herb nor in support of deteriorating minds, Gd forbid! But I do recognize the need to allow the gifts given to us to be used in their fullness … For what other reason are they here among us?

The following documentary explores the long-standing relationship of human beings and cannabis, from its use in ancient Asia to its ban in 20th century America … Believe it or not, enjoy!

The History Channel put together this compilation if you are interested in learning more about the history of man’s experience with psycho-active “foods” and “drugs”:

While we’re on the subject of mind-altering plant substances, you might be interested in this next documentary which traces the use of DMT containing plants throughout the ancient world, the major world religions, and beyond! FYI 🙂 … Just to know more!

Whatever you find yourself to be doing in your world, do BE SAFE!

Guard the valuable gift the world has … that is YOU. All the best!!

 

 

Leave The Matrix

Are you one of the few people who “are aware” of who you are? Are you on your way to achieving your full potential? Are you sure? We’re spirit beings in human guise, right?

I think it turns out that very few people are truly correct in answering yes. I’m not in a position to say whether or not you are positively affirming correctly, but let’s assume for the sake of merit that you are. That makes you very lucky! Because the influences of our environment and society at large are working subconsciously against the expression of your “true self”. While quite a long, multifaceted video, the following will give you great insight as to the “programing” we are being subjected to in order for “the powers that be” to maintain a good level of control.

As you can now understand if you watched the video, we’re quietly under assault from many varied directions. It appears the “elite” will do anything they can in a matrix of control to ensure their successful takeover of our minds to become slaves to their desires and consume what they want us to.

But, we must remember one thing, the most important thing to ever keep engraved upon your hearts, that you are the very being that is imaged in the “likeness” of The Creator who came up with you in the first place … including your being a bearer of the very energy that created the world! YOU ARE YOUR MATRIX!!

To be a bit more clear here, your thoughts are the things that set up your mode of being, your mood … your swings … they lend you “feeling” about your “reality”. What if you are in control of yours? What if you can manage to focus your attention, 24/7, on that which you are happy about in your experience with your life. Actually living it in its fullness because you are allowing for that to happen. Awesome thought right now, eh?

Of course, this takes tremendous will power and desire to be clear that you are an extension of The Source of your being! Your success is a credit to your being … increasing and expanding on that which had prior been achieved. You thus bring glory to being that which you essentially are … and not be “trapped” within the fantasies of those who don’t have your interests in mind. There is no virtue in living life through someone Else’s … how much more-so through those made up in the minds of programmers?

Anyway, I once again have here another Abraham Hicks session that has more entertaining, yet important information for us to keep in mind. We can and should tune our selves to stay on the “high vibration” path … The one that allows with clarity of being the goodness that is with us every day all the time even when we don’t notice it. It’s beyond what we think … But none the less good!

How do you release the “hook” that holds you back? … The succumbing to the whims and fantasies of the many “sheeple” in your midst … in the environment that you chose subconsciously to affect you the way it does? Do what you should do according to the messages received from your own “inner guidance system” and flow “downstream” instead of “up” … on the path of least resistance … The path of most allowance!

So there you have it! An uncommon yet rather sensible way to leave “The Matrix” and live a life of abundant creation. With sight aimed through an inherent “guidance system”, we can build “thriving” momentum in the direction that is most likely to get us where we want to go … in the best way possible. Without resistance, we allow … We permit our “inner Gd-sourced being” to reveal to us “the path” to follow that leads to what we want. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? The Universe works tirelessly to accommodate your desires … “The Matrix” no longer has influence!

Read this book alongside listening to the audio: How To Be A Genius … The Science of Being Great, the third and final book written by “new thought” pioneer and inspirational author Wallace D. Wattles back in the early part of the last century. Wattles was way ahead of his time and his books are even more popular now then they were back when he wrote them.

You are more than your body … There is a “Source energy” part of you that is a strong vibration in momentum  … constantly calling you on toward greater greatness. It pays quite nicely to hear that call and forever leave “The Matrix”. Wisdom is the essential basis of  your greatness … Gain it and use it for your growth. Uncover your destiny.

The Alternate Reality

Are you aware that an alternate reality exists to everything you currently imagine? So much has come to light with regard to how our consciousness affects what we perceive as real. The previous post revealed a video that explains all this in depth. It is quite a mind-opener you should take a moment to view! If you are interested in how one particular spiritual mentor found “the secret” to better living, the following movie by Wayne Dyer is one of the most inspirational films I have ever watched  … Watch it too 😀 … In it’s subtle teaching, it shows the ways in which you can be happier and more content in life by recognizing ignorance and opening the door to shift into a better reality.

Too many people tend to miss the goodness in their lives simply because they largely focus their thoughts on what’s wrong with their lives and do not pay homage to what is in fact good. This practice only serves to keep the frequency of their “vibration” on a low level. Positive, high level vibrations result from happy thoughts and feelings. The Universe’s Law of Attraction states that whether we realize it or not, we are responsible for bringing both positive and negative influences into our lives.

Those of you who have been following my posts know that every now and then I like to include the words of wisdom that stream from “Abraham”, the collective universal consciousness, through Esther Hicks. To the unfamiliar, their teaching is that we as human beings, are THE “LEADING EDGE” of present day “re-creation” … continuously expanding the Universe beyond that which was created prior to our coming here … and creating new avenues of becoming.  In fact, “recreation” is such an appropriate word since from their point of view, we unfortunately tend to work too hard! Life is meant to be fun … an experience within which our needs are provided effortlessly by the nature of God’s Universe. The error of thinking we must struggle and strive for success only causes us to resist going with the flow of “Source” (present in the form of our “inner being”) who from what I’ve come to understand, immediately answers our call and provides at that moment what we need (albeit on a vibrational level, but nonetheless done for us). We just have to somehow match the frequency of that vibration the same way a radio dial is adjusted to tune into a specific broadcast. Check this for more if interested:

All told, what’s written on the bottom line is that we can dictate the state of our “reality” by the way we focus thought. We have the ability to enter consciously into alternate realities at every moment! Every moment of our lives can be as real as we imagine them to be. It is said that the “present” we are living at this moment is the “old news” of our past thoughts and imaginations. By living “in the now”, we can gain insight on what to anticipate will be the experience of our future.  With what we have learned thus far, it is obviously wise to preserve every “now” moment with the infusion of good feelings and appreciation for “the path” we are on and positively thinking about it.

Many times all one has to do is “go with the flow” to where the inner being is leading. Instead of trying to go against the flow, resisting the “ease” with which “Source” and The Universe is tending to and providing for our needs, what we really need to do is allow the “inner being” within us to navigate the way. Like a GPS navigational system, it is said that our inner beings indicate to us whether or not we are on the right path in life by the way we feel … Happy? You’re on the right track. Not, you’re not!

As an experienced human being, my experience (and I am pretty sure it is the same with you) has been that it is extremely difficult to maintain a happy state of mind and a positive outlook when things go “haywire”. Sure, some times it is easier than others when things are working out … or appear to anyway. But, in the midst of a crisis, who of us can whistle a happy tune at that time? Gloom is doom no matter which way you look at it. There exists at that time only darkness … light has a very hard time dispersing it. But, it is possible to alternate that reality for another. Listen to a full workshop Esther conducted:

However you can do it, enjoy the journey on the way to what you want even though the whole time you’re on the way you aren’t there yet! We are and will always be on our way to something more. We will never get “it” done and the only “wrong” way to try and get “there” is to not have fun along the way. It’s during the journey that you’ll experience thrills. Alternate the “reality” of your experience to serve your future well.

This Life is Amazing!

It’s been quite a while since my last post. I’ve gone through some rather “funky” transitions that are too complex to try and explain in words so I won’t do that here. Besides, it’s experience that teaches and not the words that describe the theories. So, you’ll just have to learn from yours and yours alone … But, I will still share with you my thoughts. Who knows, maybe I am sent as one of your “spirit guides”, being a “spiritual motivator” of sorts?

One of the things that has proven to me how amazing this life we have is, has its root based in contrast. For instance, we do not recognize “light” until it springs out of and dispels darkness. The contrast between the two amplifies each one’s identity. The same can be said regarding the distinction between the colors of a rainbow. While the dividing lines may be somewhat blurry, the core of each is distinctly different and true to their being. We get to know what we want by experiencing what we don’t want. That’s what helps bring clarity into our lives.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I found myself in a dilemma of sorts trying to come to grips with a contrast between how I wanted to feel and the reality of how I felt … Essentially coming to conjure up two women into my world. One with whom I married and have raised a family with and another with whom I would really love to do the same even more … Much more!

Anyway, what has come to my attention is that “prayer” is an extremely powerful tool which does get answered. Though the answer isn’t always recognized, there is one nonetheless … Believe it or not. The way I see it, considering the fact that as the “breath of life” was breathed into our ancient ancestors Adam and Eve, that “breath” came from the innermost space within The Creator. This implies that a portion of “It” was thus implanted within the bodies of these first humans … The “soul” … an extension of God.

So in a sense, we, as descendants of those first human beings are alive because of the existence within us the energy from which ALL was created. When we ask for something, we are likely to somehow get it simply because it is as if our “Source” is giving in to Itself … Can you real-ize that? Would “It” deny itself what “It” wants and needs? Quite a powerful concept when you think about it! We were created and are meant to be human likenesses of God!! Unfortunately many of us do not identify with that. The important thing to keep in mind however is to be very clear about what it is you really want and in fact, need. Things always work out for us when we let our path find us!

I remember, almost 28 years ago, asking The Holy One to provide me with a woman that would be suitable for me to marry and be a good mother to our children. Not a bad request at all … my request was granted and I was very happy about that. However, with the passage of time, I came to realize that though my life was blessed by her accompanying me on that wonderful path, I was not truly bound “contractually” to the woman who I could recognize and feel as my “true” mate. There was a pronounced recognition of genuine incompatibility where complementary action won’t happen.

As it happens with me, my nature of being attempts to focus mainly on the positive side of things in the equation more than the negative … And I tend to stay with something (or someone in this case) that doesn’t really serve me in the ideal way I would prefer. I held myself in a job that was similar maybe longer than I should have too as an example. I say “maybe” because it could be that my time there was actually what was necessary for me to learn and develop into what I eventually did. It may be the same thing with the woman who has up to now been my wife.

Something begins to stir within me though that causes me to yearn for better at some point along this journey through life. It “comes to a head” one day, then “bursts” … In this case, the feeling that I was sorely without yet desiring my true mate. The woman who called herself my wife was not the “real deal” … Though she tried as best she could. Sadly though, I could not rid myself of the thought and feeling the tremendous lack. It pervaded my being and even brought me to tears.

I went out into an open field and with eyes raised to Heaven, poured out my heart and cried for an answer to my problem. “Either show me that I was to accept that this woman is to remain “mine” for the rest of my life or provide me with another and make it such that peace would reign between all involved”.

What happened within a week later, my eyes were “opened” to capture the presence of a woman who somehow illuminated my soul. Long story short, I had again been given an answer.

Life is full of surprises. One only has to be open to witness the many wonders and miracles that occur around us every moment of every day. There is no shortage of fascinating things that can and do happen for us. Just be aware of your “divinity” … For we are all samples of “God-ness” … Spiritual beings of goodness in the guise of physical beings that have the ability to create our realities by connecting with the energy that we are and its source. Life is truly amazing … Make it fantastic!

Many are Man’s Thoughts

. . . The thoughts in a man’s heart are many. But it’s the “advice” that “Source” gives to him that will bring about what he wants in his life.

In my last post, I brought up the idea that inspiration is the result of a “breathing” mind … a mind which is receptive to the messages which our “Source” provides for us. Is yours “breathing” today? What it takes is simply to be in a relaxed state appreciative of all that you have and are doing while the Universe secretly arranges for people, events and things to surprise you during the day. It’s about making the choice to feel happy no matter what the circumstances are in life because that is the naturally intended state of being for “creatures” made in the “image” of God … in Its likeness.

In his book Psycho-Cybernetics,  Maxwell Maltz relegates a whole chapter to this notion. Not exactly in relation to what I wrote above, but the concept that happiness is native to the human mind. Happiness enables us to think better, perform better, feel better and maintain good health. Too often many of us hold the false belief that we will be happy after some future event or occurrence. The problem with that is while we wait for it to happen, we miss out on being happy in the present … The “now” loses out due to the disappointment of the event or occurrence not yet happening. Happiness is a mental attitude, a habit, that is learned and practiced. If not in the present, it may never be experienced. This is just one topic the book discusses.  With millions of copies sold, if you haven’t read his book, you may be missing out on the most important influence on your life. Check it out!

What needs to be reiterated is that we receive countless numbers of blessings each day. The simple fact that we are alive is one of them. While life does have its problems, it is to be understood that they are in our lives for the challenge of overcoming them. Life would be rather boring if all day every day everything went well without any blips. There is an interesting level of fun experienced when we overcome obstacles to achievement and solve difficult problems. It’s our mental exercise routine. Moreover, we create an expansion of our being by realizing greater abilities through experience.

Esther Hicks, the physical conduit of the thoughts of a collective of non-physical beings, talks about the purpose of contrast in our lives as being the means by which we learn what we want in life. That in fact, we knew that this is the reason we came into the world … to discern personally what we want to focus upon as “creators” … extensions of Source energy.  The world in which we live is vibrational and a change in your personal vibration will change your life. Thus, it becomes very important to give our attention to positive thoughts and feelings because that is the way we attract positivity into our lives. By focusing with clarity on what we want to experience, we encourage exactly that to be.

I can’t over emphasize how much this process has been affecting my life lately. Everything is always working out for me. Maybe not immediately, but I no longer have cause for concern. I know that “Source” is with me all the time in every moment no matter what. What a relief it is to hold that belief. I now experience my world unfolding beautifully in ways which allow me to receive what I want to come to me. One of the things that has come is the new Aspire Training for Online Marketing Mastery. What a fantastic “find”! More accurately however, the Universe coordinated such that it found me as a result of my enhanced receptive mode. With a 118+ page members area, it is bursting with training, expertise, community, tools and resources which ensure success for those  of us wanting to climb to the top of the internet marketing game. The coaching is first class as each and every one of them are already earning at least high six figures and some even at seven! I suggest you give it some thought if you too want a very nice income.

Anyway, life comes with challenges. The ultimate question though is how are you facing yours? You owe it to yourself to be in alignment with who you really are … with your origin and its true nature. once you maintain that frequency, the world becomes your playmate.

Make YOUR day special . . . !

Psycho-Cybernetics Updated and Expanded

Inhale The Future, Exhale The Past.

One of the most important abilities we have as human beings, is the power to move the intellect and the emotions. Whether they be those within us or that of others, we can soothe or motivate thoughts and actions. In fact, inspiration is the result of a “breathing” mind … one which allows the flow of divine spiritual energy to enter freely without resistance.

Unfortunately, the nature of our being joined with a physical existence tends to keep us “grounded” in earthly concerns as if they are the dominant features of our being. More often than not we forget that we are spiritual beings having this physical “human” experience. The majority of our “bodies” are actually vibrational in form, connected to our Source. What generally happens to us is that we focus on circumstances and events that affect us one at or another too seriously. It’s as if our lives are dictated by the experiences of the world we live in as opposed to our dictating the experiences we want from our world. After all, having the energy which created the universe as part of our souls, the Source within us, we are capable of re-creating “reality”. We do not have to accept the way things are as the way the will continue to be. We can decide how to be … how to behave … how to think about the people, places, events and things in our lives. There is no sense is being a slave to our energy motions. We can control them. It’s all a matter of choice.

Very often, we neglect the “now” in our lives and spend most of our time in memory. Remembering the past keeps us from enjoying what is happening now and limits our looking forward. I myself began to real-ize this recently. Those of you who have been following this blog have noticed that it’s been a while since I last posted. Well, the reason is, mental expiration. Too many thoughts not leading me forward but keeping me stuck in relentless worry. No need to get into the details but it’s very difficult to come up with good content in that state. Needless to say, I’m past that now and working on an improving my future using my “now” as a launching pad.

There are countless blessings that come our way at every moment of a day. This is a fact that must be recognized and appreciated all the time. The only way we can do that is to be present in the moment. Why do you think it’s called the present? Because each moment of our lives is a gift! If we spend our time thinking backwards to the past or worrying about the future, we end up forfeiting the “gifts”. By relaxing and taking the time to be appreciative of where we are, no matter how much it may not be where we want to be, we can use the moment to take the necessary steps toward the outcome we desire. Each step forward will bring the destination that much closer … progressively coming into resonance with the totality of being that we essentially are.

Presently, I am working at a job which doesn’t pay me what I believe I deserve. It happens to be a rather comfortable job which allows me a level of freedom whereby I can actually be doing things like this while working. I listen to recorded lectures and read interesting articles while still performing the duties of my position. It’s a blessing all in itself. but, the pay leaves me desiring more. I really have nothing to complain about other than that. When I see the people in the same location busting their butts doing work that is much harder physically and mentally, who get paid the same relatively, I know how lucky I am. Or is it Divine Providence? You see, I recognize my “divinity”. Not that I am better than anyone else. It’s just that I real-ize that I am an extension of The Source of All Created Being. Most of the people I know don’t even think about this until I bring it to their attention. Of course it seems to me that they forget thinking about that shortly after I relate it to them. It’s so easy to get caught up in human frailty. Somehow, by aligning myself with that reality, I have managed to “create” a job reality congruent with that notion … I think. It’s related to the law of attraction. That which is like unto itself is attracted to itself. As I accept with gratitude the people, places, circumstances and things in my life, the door opens to the Universe to supply more stuff to appreciate.

For instance, knowing that I want to be making more money than I have been, though not complaining about it and drawing negativity around that situation, the Universe has been providing me with all sorts of guidance and information as to how I can begin to increase my financial well-being. As if by accident, I was attracted to an ad identifying 6 steps to a six figure business in 90 days. Now, taking into consideration that this seemed far-fetched, I didn’t know if it was true that this could be achieved. However, I also know that “Source” has my back! So much in life has shown me how much “It” Loves me and Wants my Happiness … I believe this to be truth. I’m checking it out. Maybe not going to be making six figures in 90 days (though I now see how it can actually happen …) but hopefully soon enough … preferably before the year is up 😉 . Hey, even five figures is better than the low four I make nowadays. If you are like me in any way, you owe it to yourself to check this or the likes of it out as well. If you can believe as I do, you’ll be positioned to make use of a potential winner. “Source” and the Universe that does “Its” work is seeking for you to benefit from life in this time-space reality as well. So, inhale the future, bring it in deeply and exhale the past, because back there is nothing that will do you any good right now anyway!

Going Nuts . . . It’s Bananas . . .

I’m in somewhat of a dilemma. I need to vent. You see, there’s a battle going on within me having to do with the possibility that I’ve met someone important to me in my life . . . But, there is no way I can know for sure in which way and that my imagination isn’t running away with me.

This situation ties in somewhat with my last post, albeit unexpectedly. It’s from the lattice of coincidence.

It’s like this – a special, highly radiant soul has appeared in my environment and is causing mine a type of uneasiness that doesn’t allow me to stop thinking of her . . . She’s always on my mind. I think it’s from a rumbling of love but I don’t know how or why. With mere eye contact and words, we both begin to “glow” in each others presence. Her aura seems just like mine and we’re “energetically” alike. The major difference is with our ages . . . I’m around 11 years older! Now this wouldn’t be a problem for me if I wasn’t married; but, I am, for better or for worse. I can’t really investigate this possibility further.

The song by England Dan and John Coley floods my mind . . . Yeah, if this is the case, it is sad. But I don’t want melodrama. I’ve actually wondered since that fateful day I married if I indeed found my soul mate. I had doubts then, but to make a long story short, she was right for me at the time and may still be (24 years must mean something). But the fact that my soul didn’t nor doesn’t “sing and dance” from her presence tells me that maybe I settled for second best and compromised. What’s important is that my life is nevertheless good. While it is natural to want better, good is what it is.

No relationship is without its ups and downs with rocky precipices. However, there is much to be said for being “in love” with someone as opposed to merely feeling love for them. The feeling that no matter what, you are undeniably for that person and would do whatever you need to keep them in your life. That’s not to say I wouldn’t work out of love to keep my wife happy and provide for her as necessary; but, I don’t feel like I’m “in love” with her. In fact, at times I don’t even like her! Her personality seems incompatible and clashes violently with mine at times and moments do occasionally arise where I “make my escape” and go meditate. I do love her, but have this sense that my true soul mate is still out there – somewhere – maybe closer than I am ready for . . . and I won’t ask or attempt to verify my suspicion! It could just be that I having a middle age crisis. Who knows!

What to do? I might be too old for this one anyway so what the heck am I thinking. This is nuts! My wife is a high quality woman with a beautiful soul and wonderful intentions. I have truly been blessed to have her in my life and I hope vice versa. She’s been here and there for me through some rough times and I sincerely thank and owe her for that. But what if my ideal match really is someone else? This scares me! What if this is my last “incarnation”? I doubt that it is, but what happens if the next one is a long way off and I am supposed to act now? What if this fantastic woman is my soul mate? Maybe she is a reincarnation of some other past family member who I was really close to? It’s bananas – unpeeled and oxidizing! I may never know.

I better just keep business as usual for the time being. Gone are the times when a man can take more than one wife – legally anyway . . . and I care not to hurt my wife’s feelings over this matter in particular. It’s a good thing she knows nothing about this blog! So, unless the “soul” that has “zapped” my control reveals her identity in a way that makes it clear to me that I need clear the way, my “show” must go on as it has for the past quarter of a century . . . and still be blessed. Chivalry cannot be allowed to die. It’s the virtue of true, caring men who recognize what’s right.

So again, it’s high time for me to grab more trusty blends of therapeutic essential oils to infuse my brain with healing aroma. In case you want to know what I’m talking about here, check out the app. I shouldn’t have this time go lapse without them!

The Disruption of Anger

I had to catch myself this morning as I found myself a bit late getting off to work. One of my daughters is complaining that no one woke her up at six o’clock per her request (which I cannot recall her asking me if she did) anh here it was half an hour later. She’s standing in one spot loathing over how little time she has to get her things done. I said to her that while the situation looked bleak, it behooves her to do as much as possible in the time remaining. She just stood there wallowing in misery. I told her that as long as she stands there doing nothing, nothing will fet done and if she’s wise, she’d better put “the pedal to the metal” and haul a__. She just raised her voice and said there was no chance she could finish her preparations in the amount of time left. She was right. She wasn’t doing anything but whining in place. I wanted to yell at her but then quickly realized, in time, that she became the proverbial horse that when lead to water, can’t be forced to drink if it doesn’t want to. I didn’t know what to do.

I felt a surge of anger. What the heck is going on here? Can you smack sense into the “blind”, ignorant and stubborn? Of course not! Being a parent, it’s become apparent that one finds need for a course in psychology to meet the challenge of it. Not everyone “catches” his or herself in time. There are many terrible stories abound with tales of lost control.

I gain my insight from Torah. It happens to be my choice for principle guidance. I have no intent to impinge on anyone elses sources for moral or spiritual guidance. That said, Rav Chaim Shmuelevitz brings from Gemara that the ways of The Torah become part of a Torah scholar’s personality; the more a person learns the Torah and delves into its great wisdom, the more it becomes part of him. I reckon this holds true for anyone who permeates his life to live with holiness and good teaching from words of “Iight”, wisdom and truth. A true scholar of genuine Divine wisdom should be a person who walks the talk, who lives it, who embodies it –  someone in whom the values of “The Way” are personified in their conduct, the way they interact with people, their integrity and their decency. Every part of their being should be an expression of such high values.

This is why when there is anger, the wisdom and “in”-spiration of the Torah leaves. If the person who makes a point of embodiying the teaching is not walking the talk, if they are not an expression of the depth of Torah values, then there is no place for Torah within such a person. Living the values of “The Way” day-to-day is a prerequisite to being a true “enlightened” scholar. Hence many passages in the Talmud discuss how decency is the foundation upon which G-d taught learning can be built – not just because it is the moral imperative, but because the Holiest of Teachings cannot remain in a person who does not actually live its way. It has to become part of who he or she is.

There is a famous letter written by Nachmanides, Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman, known as the Ramban, who lived some 700 years ago. He wrote a letter,  what could be called an ethical will, giving advice for life to his son; but his words are timeless. He began the letter with a verse from Proverbs, and the first sentence in his own words reads as follows: “Accustom yourself always to speak all of your words with gentleness, to all people and at all times.” This is the Ramban’s first instruction to his son and, by extension, to people who value good moral qualities. We must speak gently to all people at all times. He continues, “and through this, you will be saved from anger which is a very evil trait and causes people to sin. This is what Sages say: that “whoever becomes angry all kinds of hell rule over him.”

The fact that the Ramban chose to start his ethical will with these instructions shows us how dangerous anger really is, but at the same time also gives us practical advice on how to control it. He is saying, externally you must act in a way which is the opposite of anger and that will have an internal impact. What we portray to the outside influences who we are on the inside. If we speak gently and kindly, this will prevent anger.

Of course all this is easier said than done. But, if any of us are desiring in any way to emulate The Creator and “Be” in Its Likeness, it is imperative to consider these words and learn ways to do so.

Feel free to add your comment.

Of Wives and Men

Are you or have you been married? What’s it like? Pretty intense at times for me . . . I want to believe for the better.

This post could be classified as one of my intimate personal revelations. However, like I want to believe, it’s for the good. As with all of my posts anyway. We’re in this to win.

So it goes, a man seeks a wife. Why? It was kind of fun being single. No limitations regarding my whereabouts whenever and I could interact with whomever I wanted without questions like “Where were you?” or Who were you with?” suddenly becoming like hornets flying at my face. Of course, when you can honestly answer without fear, unlike those times when the “smokin” co-worker in the office wants to spend maximum time talking to you and you very much enjoy it, it’s not so bad. But the world is full of temptations . . . no end in sight nor feeling. What ya gonna do?

What logic lurks behind a commitment which lasts an eternity? Would anyone in their right mind sign a job contract which contains a binding lifetime obligation, when so many jobs are available which do not require such an extreme commitment? Why not enjoy relationships for their natural duration, and then move on when the eroded passion ceases to justify the maintenance of the relationship? Why would any sane person willingly consent to stick with a relationship even after it deteriorates to the point that it is rocky and challenging at best?

According to Kabbalistic teaching, the compulsion to rush into a lifelong commitment is an expression of the human soul’s deepest ambitions. The subliminal signals emanating from the soul have caused the logic-defying institution of marriage to be an integral part of the human fabric since the dawn of time. The soul’s desire to connect and commit makes the aspiration for marriage one of our most basic instincts.

What is the soul’s agenda? What does it stand to gain from hooking up with another soul? The mystics explain that two primary considerations drive the soul’s desire to marry: a desire to be complete, and its need to transcend itself.

In the first marriage ever, Adam and Eve were initially created as a single, two-faced body. The single being was split in two—a man and a woman—and then reunited in matrimony. In the world of souls, the partition and reunification of the male and female components of individual souls occurs continually. Every body is occupied by half a soul, and both body and soul reach a state of completion only when they are reunited with their long-lost other half.

The Talmud says that each soul’s predestined soul-mate is determined before its birth. The two may be born continents apart, with seemingly nothing in common, but divine destiny ensures that everyone’s path intersects with that of their soul-mate. However, in rare instances, due to external spiritual factors which may intervene, it is possible for people to marry spouses who are not their soul-mate. Even in such instances, however, eventually the two original soul-mates will marry—whether later on in life as a second marriage, or in a future incarnation of the two souls.

According to Kabbalists, the soul’s most fervent wish is to transcend itself. Marriage offers the soul the opportunity to express its altruistic nature. Marriage is about two souls who put their individual needs aside, and commit themselves 100% to the success of the relationship.

With Adam and Chavah at the forefront, it has been our mission to sanctify the world and make it a suitable place for emulating its Creator and be cause for “It” to revel. The home is the first frontier. Man and his woman are the perfect team to implement this plan. When working in harmony, they have the ability to make the home an epicenter of holiness whose ripple affects the neighborhood and the cosmos.

While that may be the ideal situation, the reality can be quite different. Now I’m not saying that I am unhappy, not at all. Sure there are some unhappy moments in time which goes without saying. Things can’t be “jolly roger” all the time. How would we be able to appreciate the good times if we have nothing to compare them with? How would we know the difference?

But here’s the thing and this is where it starts getting real personal again. I don’t know how many of you read my post “This Is Personal” , but if you did you’d know that I am not “white”. Here’s where you find out that my wife is . . . well sort of. Not in the way that’s meant derogatorily. She’s an American Romanian gene Yehudiah born in Israel but grew up in New York City. Suddenly the Talking Heads come to mind . . . How did I get here?

Okay, I’ll tell you. For whatever reasons which I cannot say because they are altogether not so clear to me even, I’ve had this strong desire to want to know “Who is G-d?” . . . Really. My parents practiced Catholicism. While I faithfully went to church as a kid, I found myself wanting to know why the person people were saying saved them he himself prayed to G-d. Something didn’t sit right with me. The more I began to peruse through the bible that we had at home with its intriguing pictures, it appeared to me that maybe the essence of prayer should be directed to The Creator of Heaven and Earth. I don’t know, this is way to deep to write about now. Maybe I’ll write a book someday. But, essentially, I found myself in search of truth. Besides, waking up to the fact that the holidays that we celebrated, despite being quite fun days, had a lot of lies connected to them. What’s the deal with the Easter bunny? How come we had a real mean German shepherd dog guarding the inside of our house that let no one in and Mr. Claus could somehow sneak into the house overnight and plant loads of presents under the tree in our living room? No way he could get away with that and not get torn to shreds! Surely I’d have seen some red and white fabric shreds lying around somewhere in the house. Oh and the search for reindeer in the skies all night while listening for the bells chinging over an otherwise snowy silent night? Not once in all my years on this quest did I catch a glimpse of any of those characters. Why was I being lied to? What was the cover up? The truth doesn’t stand on one leg. It’s stabilized by a solid stance.

So I began my search for it intensively while attending university. There I met so many different types of people with so many varied beliefs that an opened mind can get flooded. I finally came to the conclusion that “original” teaching, the first five books that Moses wrote, had the most to offer me in the way of understanding who the real deal is as far as I can understand “It”. Not that I totally do but I feel good that I may be communicating better with “It” than I was under the influence of some other belief. Some say that somewhere in my gene pool there must have been a Jewish “spark” carried down from an unknown ancestor. I must say however, had I known about the Noachide Laws, that might have kept me from being under the yoke of 606 commandments and instead having to be responsible for upholding just seven! So much more liberating. But I’m happy to be living life under the “Canopy of Divine Guidance” so you won’t get any complaints from me. But, for anyone still with me on this blog dealing with similar issues like those I faced, the Noachide World Center may be a good place to look into. Check out these videos too.

Anyway, so I wanted to get married. Did I upset my destiny toward my soul-mate? Or was this part of the divine plan? What does G-d know that I may never find out?

When you change your world, you create a whole new reality. But your phenotype stays the same. For me, the types of “fish in the sea” seemed to become much fewer in number. In fact, pretty much down to zilch. Suddenly, pretty much any Yehudiah with brown skin that my friends and extended family would meet became a candidate for me. For that reason alone. But compatibility is an important concern for such a milestone commitment. I felt no need to be confined within the mindset that my help-meet had to look like me skin-wise. We are clearly people after all . . . Spiritual beings having a human experience! Not that much is different between us outside of the culture we are trained by.

So that had become the main challenge. Bridging the gap between cultural upbringing. I have found that compromise can be a double-edged sword that one must exercise extreme caution with. It can either encourage your wildest dreams or send you to your wildest nightmare. It’s important to keep your eyes on the prize you are trying to win. What’s your ultimate goal? Remember, begin with the end in mind. Now mind you, I, like every sane man on the planet, am attracted to beautiful women. Not that they are attracted to me, but I for sure am drawn to quality. Sure, there are some who look absolutely fantastic, but you can tell right away or even some short time after that they don’t represent quality women. Then again, you can find some really high quality women who look somewhat beast. I selected a “golden soul” who most certainly wasn’t going to be a draw to the “wolves” and maybe run astray nor would I wake up in the morning thinking again of those Talking Heads. Well, not too often anyway!! Admittedly it can happen.

So that’s it. In a search for a mutual lifestyle companion, we may find our selves building our own prison for reasons unknown. But, if the conditions are good, what’s the benefit of breaking out? Being committed doesn’t have to refer to an insane asylum. You have to stick with your “inner voice” and go with your program. It just may be that no matter which one you choose, she’s the right medicine for what ails you . . . Even if at times she makes you “sick”. It’s all good.

The Search for Meaning

… is not really a search as much as it is a fruition. As I go through my days and remember the past, I see now that they have been pathways to my being. How I handled my decisions at the moments they were placed before me became my direction. How our lives turn out is a direct response to how we choose to go about living it. The focus on finding oneself is actually a waste of time since we play the part that we script for ourselves. In other words, by making strides toward being that which you want to be, you begin acting that part. The time spent focusing on achieving excellence at it determines how well you become the player.

Meaning is defined by what it is intended to be! It is what you want to convey to others. There is no search for it. It’s what makes a person or thing significant. It’s defined by an observation. What do you mean to others who interact with you? How do you fit in? How is it you want to? What needs to be done if a change is in order? These are things that we can decide for ourselves before being labelled by someone else. The choices are in our behavior … our be-ing!

The great thing about us as humans is how diverse we are in being. There are so many types of us it’s almost ridiculous. But, the most fascinating aspect is that one way or another or more, there is a complementary symbiotic relationship to all that we do. Each of us contributing to a whole that is mankind on planet Earth. Should there be one to judge our progress, what would that mean to you as an individual? What part are you playing in the “game” and how well are you playing it? What are you doing to avoid being side-lined, or worse, taken out altogether?

When it comes to being at the top of your game, you’ve got to make sure you are properly rested, fueled and trained well to play. Without preparation, you can’t reach the top.

I highly recommend paying strict attention to your nutrition and making sure you keep your “vessel” in tip top shape. Sure there are certain things not in our control; but then again, we must take charge where we are response able.

For many, if not all of your health and beauty needs, I suggest you look through this store. The company was founded in 2002 and is a trusted name in the field of health and beauty and is a proud member of the Natural Products Association. It’s reassuring even more that they are dedicated to providing safe and effective products that help people adequately supplement their lives. It’s worth your time to consider giving them a look-see. Your money would be well spent too. No matter what you decide to do in the end, do be well!

That Small Thin Voice of The Soul

Perhaps it can be considered that when we allow ourselves to be in touch with our souls, we step into a realm where our hectic lives disappear. Stopping momentarily to listen to our selves, gives us the opportunity to process the changes that we sense instinctively as those necessary for growth and fulfillment. When you take stock and take charge of where you are heading in life, you can then make sure you are heading in the right direction. The direction you most want to be in. Being is a present state. It is what you are at any given time. Who do you want to be? What does your inner voice tell you? Are you there yet? If not, what are you doing to be who you want to be how you want to be? If you have not yet, it’s time to start thinking about your goals in life.

The more time you give to listening to the inner voice of your soul, the more likely you are to hear the authentic messages you need to be paying attention to. It may take some time to get through all the irrelevant chatter, but if you write down all the things that are important for you to achieve, your subconscious mind will begin to steer you in the right direction. Straight to authentic and happy being.

I have to let you in though on one of my secrets. Well, maybe not so much of a secret, but something not generally considered nor thought about in most circles. The olfactory system, a fascinating, mysterious and complex component of our being related to scent, has a powerful influence on human emotions and the nervous system. Aromatherapy is the form of alternative medicine that uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils for the purpose of altering one’s mood, cognitive, psychological or physical well-being. I have been putting it to the test so to speak, playing around with different therapeutic plant oils. Based on their intended use, I apply these oils as drops on my undershirt (near the shoulders or in the chest area) and allow a sort of olfactory centered mental trance to take over for hours. The scent causes greater conscious focus on the purpose that the scent suggests as a result of its use, there is the subconscious induction that it works.

I must say, but I cannot prove it, that since I started “playing around” with these therapeutic scents, it appears I must be opening psychic channels to the physical fruition of needed events and occurrences! I don’t really know what made what to happen when, but I am finding myself listening to my small thin voice more attentively and hearing its whispers. Then I find out that I’m in fact being more the me I want to be being in the situations which I find myself. It’s really cool! Of course, It may have absolutely nothing to do with the oils at all … then again, there’s nothing wrong with a well-oiled machine!
