Miracle Monday: Quiet

A miracle will happen today! What a fabulous declaration for Monday.

It is true that you can reach any goal with the proper perspective.  One grounding exercise is to be quiet-really quiet in the mind and mouth.

My request today, especially after the possible frenzy from holiday travel, gatherings or shopping last week, open this week with some quiet mindfulness.  Pause for a moment, right where you are and do a mental examination of various aspects of your life and determine whether you are satisfied with them. For example, you may think about finances during this time. If so, examine how you feel about money and how you manage money right now. Or, you may need to think longer about a family relationship. Consider the dynamics of the interactions you have with that particular person.  It does not matter what you spend your quiet time on, simply quietly think.

Now that you have spent the requisite quiet time with mindfulness and you know what you intend to improve, next take a sheet of paper and begin jotting notes about the ideal circumstances you would like to create whether it’s with money, family relationships or some other aspect of your life. Creatively write, as offered by Julie Cameron. As you write, without censure, tap into your core of pure genius, and let perfect solutions flow onto the page.

Quiet mindfulness allows you to co-create through the purity of divine intention the most solid, revealing solutions. The barriers that tend to block your flow of manifesting a miracle often comes from your learned response to control or force solutions that ends up creating more blockages in our lives. Release your mind, let go of your thoughts of control, and open yourself to the flowing fonts of inner governance.

“In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.”

~Robert Heinlein

Relax and open your mind to creative inspiration and you will euphorically discover that creating inspiring details of what you want becomes a simple and effortless process. You can manifest a miracle simply by first knowing in clear detail the circumstances you intend to create and then inviting the perfect solutions to materialize. What you then attract is a powerful intention that operates on your behalf to give you what you want or something better.

Bob Proctor always asks: What do you want?

When you can clearly answer that question, believe me, your circumstances will then shift, and eventually match the inner intentions you hold  for your life, be it money, relationships, family, weight or anything else.

Today, quietly make your miracle.

BE Thankful

“Be generous in prosperity and thankful in adversity.

Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor and look upon him with a bright and friendly face.

Be a treasure of the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy…

Be unjust to no man.

Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness,

Be a home for the stranger…

Be eyes to the blind….”

~Baha’u’llah

M.E.E.T.ing your goals

Dear Readers,

This is a post that fits our theme: living your inner passion everyday. So, I want to share this clear, pivotal message with you.

 

M.E.E.T.ing your goals by Pavlos Kapralos

 

No matter what your goal may be, from “quitting smoking” to the more abstract “changing my life”, before you set out for it, just, bear in mind that you need to be adequate, in all phases of goal-setting. So, take a small test. Ask yourself these questions.
Motivation: How strongly do I want to achieve this goal? How much do I believe in this goal? How much am I inspired by this? Is/Was it a dream of mine? Is it according to my ideals and values? Is it alive inside me for long, or is it an inspiration on the spot?
Easiness: How easy is the goal? How easy is that goal for me, in particular? Can and will I do it? Is it in accordance with my skills?
Energy: Do I have my batteries charged? Am I in an overall good condition, in terms of physical and mental stamina? Do I get tired or discouraged easily? Is this the best time to start? What are the other things that require my energy at the same time?
Taking It Up: Do I have a general idea of what to do? Can I break it down to smaller tasks? Do I know the place, the time, the actions and the people that I am going to employ?

Well, the more “Yes/a lot” you have, the more likely is that you will achieve your goal, even if you are wrong in many of your answers!!!
At the end of the day, the power of beliefs lies in the phrase of Henry T. Ford “Whether you believe you can, or whether you believe you can’t, you are probably right”.

Miracle Monday: Ask

Happy Monday, create a miracle!

There is a formula for manifesting what you want in life (we have gone over them in previous posts) and one component is to ask or probe the issue.  But, in the asking – ask specifically for what you WANT. Many people invest energy and emotion on lengthy lists or exercises that concentrate on what they DO NOT WANT. No. In your asking, ask for exactly what you want.

Simply, specifically ask for the exact thing that you want. Check in with your passion radar, even re-take the Passion Test by Chris and Janet Attwood. Find your core desire and then stop and make a request from that-just ask!

Never concern yourself with justifying why you ask for this specific miracle, not to worry the universe will only supply that which is good (even a teachable lesson) for you.  Derrick Ashong, host of The Derrick Ashong Experience on Oprah Radio  underscores this process.  He says,

“When I am starting a project, I often ask questions: If I am asking questions chances are that I’m about to do something worthwhile.”

Do something else worthwhile today, strengthen your miracle chances by asking for what you want.

You are a miracle, expect the miraculous!

 

Fantastic Friday: Altruism

Giving helps. Researchers confirm what we already know: giving benefits the giver as much or sometimes more than the receiver.

On this Fantastic Friday, exercise your altruism muscle so that your heart stays strong.

Ho Su Kim was recently honored for his volunteer work at The Center for Pan Asian Community Service, Inc., where he founded the Food Pantry program providing food assistance to families and seniors in need in metro-Atlanta. His fantastic act of care – building a sustainable program of giving selflessly so that others will have food to eat is worthy.  Mr. Kim decided to get busy and exercise his heart muscle by doing something that now benefits hundreds of families per week.

You too can do good by giving with an altruistic spirit. Look around, identify a need, and share what you have.  It may be a random pay-it-forward act or it could be using a hammer at a Habitat build, or helping the elderly or a child with homework for free.

The options you have for altruism are as open and unique as you are. The main thrust here is to give and to give with heart. Your altruism may be a one-off act or it could be longer term like Mr. Kim or similar to Karen White and her family, whom I admire so much. They adopted two children from Africa and life is great for the family.

Whatever act of altruism you choose this Friday, do it and feel fantastic!

 

Fantastic Friday

What a day to celebrate – today is the day of one.  11-11-11 all ones that equal 1. One you, One God, One Faith, One humanity, One love, One grace, One focus, One family, One heart, One grace, One expectation….

Make your own One …. declaration. One ?

Fantastic!

Today I want to highlight a concept for Fantastic Friday.  11 Alive News (www.11alive.com), a local television station in Atlanta, is celebrating what is fantastic, fabulous, and factitive about sharing and giving goodness from the heart.   The news takes a new twist at this station; instead of all gloom, fear and death, they are championing what is good that children and young people do to make this world a better place.

“It’s a movement meant to have a positive impact on people’s lives every day.”  Add to the Chain, using the example of Rachel Scott,  the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999 is linking up Georgians all across the state. Her acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her six diaries have become the foundation for Rachel’s Challenge, is Georgia’s response of trans-formative positive impact.

Schools and businesses and people from across Georgia   volunteered time, contributed creative solutions and took an active part in giving that added to the chain of kindness. One random act from the heart makes a difference.

I plan to join the thousands of celeebrants at the Georgia Dome today for the culmination of  this year of service,  kindness and thoughtfulness and bask in the prominence of happiness and joy so that I have an indelible imprint to carry forward.

Don’t stop! It does not matter where you are in the world, keep the chain of kindness going.

Make a fantastic contribution of positive sharing today and everyday.  As six year old Zalissa Lomax of Gainesville, Georgia knows,  “just a smile can change something, and that’s never too small of an act of kindness.”

You are fantastic, be fantastic and give what is fantastic in you.
