Live in The Moment, Not For the Main Event

The main event has never been the manifestation; the main event has always been the way you feel moment by moment, because that’s what life is.


Excerpted from the workshop: Syracuse, NY on October 17, 1996

This says it all. It’s what people really mean when they tell you to live life in the moment! In the past 7 months I have learned how important that is. You cannot be “waiting” until you get to this point in life or achieve this or that, or have a new car, new relationship etc. You have to live right now and aim to be joyful and experience all that happens to you as it happens.

Try to do this for a day at first. If you make it to breakfast and then forget, that’s a step in the right direction. Keep on track every time you remember what you’ve vowed to do. Get yourself back to living in the now. Look around you, write it down then or at the end of the day. There are so many phone apps that are diaries that would make it easy for you to record how well you are living in the now.  Read it back when things seem to be going not so good.


Tuesday Tip

Start making a list of the things that make you happy. This can be in addition to your Gratitude/Appreciation journal or it can be separate. But if you just take a few moments each day to list one or two (or more if you like) things that you’ve seen or experienced that make you happy, soon you’ll have a nice long list that you can pull out and read and review whenever you feel you want to change your mood. Remember that it may be difficult or take awhile to change your reality (although it is possible) BUT you CAN change your mood because it’s simply dependent on you. Use this list to change your mood – to put you in a great vibrational space. The more you think about things that make you happy, the more you’ll be surprised about how your emotional state (feelings/vibrations) will improve. Try it, you’ll like it!

Tuesday Tip – 17 Seconds Sets The Universe Into Action

If you hold a feeling (vibration) for 17 seconds, the Universe speeds into action.

If you hold it for 68 seconds, you have manifested what you’ve been feeling/thinking/vibrating.

Manifestation is different than materialization. When you manifest something, the Universe has created it for you.

Materialization brings it into physical matter. So that will take more than 68 seconds. That’s where the Law of Gestation comes in.

Just know that you have created what you’ve been thinking about (whether it’s wanted it or unwanted) if you obsess about something for 68 seconds.

Processing The Tragedy in Connecticut

 We have all been devastated to a degree by the senseless shooting of innocent children (and adults) in Connecticut.  Parents, especially, may be feeling a deep sense of fear for their own children.

Perhaps it even brings back memories for you of a time when you were terrified….maybe memories of 9/11 or Columbine or any of the other tragedies that have seemed to increase in the past few years.

How can we process this event, not contribute to the negative aspects of it and yet not appear cold to others?

First of all, I think people will think what they want to think of you no matter what you do. So why not do what’s best for you and your family?

You know I talk about vibration all the time – this is key right now. You must do everything you can to raise your vibration and this will take some doing as the news media latches on to this tragedy. I realize they have a job to do but it should NOT be 24 hours a day, saying and showing the same thing over and over again.  We all know the facts – at least 20 children and 6 adults (I might be off on the numbers) were killed by a deranged young man who simply burst into school and started shooting. Do you really need to know any more than than? If you said yes, ask yourself “why” you need to know more than that.

If you said “so I can prevent it from happening again”, you are deluding yourself. By concentrating on its occurrence and focusing so much of the country’s (and the world’s) time, emotions and energy on this crisis we are all working to bring MORE of it into our lives.

We have to work to raise our vibrations and feel love and compassion for those involved. Do anything you can (meditate, pray, hold hands, hug, whatever works for you) to get into a place of peace. As you begin to feel inner peace, you’ll also begin to radiate it outward and that is what we all want to do. The more peace and love we can radiate out toward those affected, the more good we are doing for them, rather than the “virtual rubbernecking” that we’re doing by being tied to the TV news.

Why is this so important? If you have children or are around children, remember that they know what’s going on even if you try to hide things. They read your emotions, they “know” you, they “feel” you and your thoughts, feelings and vibrations.

Do you want them to feel your fear? Of course not. You want to reassure them in any way possible. Let them know that they are safe and loved and that those in Connecticut will be taken care of, be loved and will thrive as children do – if we let them.

If you start to hover or be over protective, they will pick up on your fear. They will then start to be afraid and yet not know why.

It it NOT cold or mean or unfeeling to try to raise your vibration. Use the Rampage of Appreciation to get in a better feeling place. Use the “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” technique as well. More importantly say your “gratitudes” (use your Gratitude Journal) and show the Universe how much you appreciate what you have. NO matter how bad things seemed yesterday morning for you, I bet they appeared not so significant when you heard the news. Do anything you can to move your thoughts to the positive. Think about how resilient children are and think of examples in your own family life – that should bring smiles to your face. Write them down. Better yet, start planning 2013 and determining your plans to achieve your desires in 2013. Figure out what your desires really are. Take time to think about them and solidify them. Use this time to take an inventory of where you are and where you were last year and how far you’ve come. Do anything to focus on the positive right now. Play with your kids but don’t cling to them.

Remember NOT to tell this story over and over again. Do not engage with others who just want to revisit the same old stuff. Find a way to move off from those who have to discuss it. Change the topic, excuse yourself and slip away. Do anything to tell a positive story – even if it has to be a silent one inside your head. Also remember the invaluable phrase “That is not my truth”.

Help the vibration of the world become positive so that the magnetic energy diverted to Connecticut can be healing and loving energy, not anger or fear.

Let me know if you’ve found a way to accomplish this.


Tip of the Month – February

 Let’s take a look at the Universal Laws this month.

The Law of Consciousness, the Law of Mind Action and the Law of Cause and Effect are the first three laws. I suggest at least once a month you review these first three laws. Sit down with a pen and paper and write down any new ideas that have come up that you think are limiting to you.

As you move into the next Laws coming up, you realize that our subconscious is like peeling skins off of an onion. We peel a little bit off at a time. We move through those and into a new awareness. Then we have to go back and pull off another layer. We look at another viewpoint with different things. Each time we evaluate where and who we are and what we’re doing with our lives.

We have within us that capacity to dream bigger, receive newer ideas and expressions of what we want to do and have an unfolding life that gets better all the time. It took us many years to limit ourselves through the subconscious action of error belief and the mistakes of life.

As we make these changes in our lives, we need to go back and look at the Law of Consciousness again.

What do we really believe? If we still attract unpleasant people to our lives, then we say, “What is it? Reveal to me this truth.” Ask yourself over and over, “Show me something new that I can do. Show me how I can let go of these old ideas. What is it that I need to let go of at this time?

Each time we move through a review of these earlier laws, we open up ourselves for the Christ mind to become stronger and more powerful in our lives. That is when your ideas begin to become genius activity. You begin to dream in bigger and better ways. The Christ in you has no limitations.

The Christ in you has no barriers. It has nothing that will prevent the Christ itself from being that radiant life of spirit within you. You can do all things. You begin to believe it as you get all of the little things out of the way that have kept you in struggle, overcoming and all of the things that you thought you had to do.

We work with the Law of Cause and Effect and realize that as we’re giving out, it’s coming back. The more stability we have in our ability to hold onto that faith that we’re working with these laws, the quicker and easier they come back to us.
