Go outside and tell your animal companions thank you for being here with us! We love you! And send out a radiating heartfelt pulse of love out to the universe and all beings. Wrap it in gratitude! Feel the joy and the love coming back into your heart directly from them! Feel their gratitude fill your heart! Then look around you, see the beauty that is our Mother Earth fill your heart, she can transmute any of your fears or negative thoughts and help you find the balance and peace within your being. Thank her. Love her. Then thank Creator and All that exist for their part in your life and the lives of all here. Breath in the Crystalline light the energy that is in the air which feeds all living beings here, Exhale, and release all the stress within your being. A few deep breaths, and you are at peace. Listen, what do you hear? What messages await you? Do you feel better? More refreshed and relaxed? Great! Carry this moment with you as you face the challenges of your day. Share the love. Remember to Love yourself too! Say to yourself, “I am Love!” “I am a great person! I am full of good health and lots of loving energy to share with the world!” “I am fantastic! Life is working things out for my highest good always, and I am grateful it does!”

 

We choose which mood to set our day, I think this is a good way to begin today!

 

There is so much going on in the world today, and so much information coming at us from everywhere each moment, I think it’s important that we remember to take that moment to just breath and be One with everything. I think too that many of you will argue there is just not even that free moment for that but I argue to that, we must make that time happen, like showering or brushing our teeth. We must nurture ourselves, and daily remind ourselves we are loving spiritual beings with limitless opportunity in each day. Since most of us do not get compliments and kudos from the outside world, it’s important that we give OURSELVES those things we need. Hug yourself, tell you that you love you and you are a great person, that everything is going to be alright, you truly only need you. We have been so programmed to think that we are lacking, we lack nothing except that which we perceive. We never lack love or companionship, for we are truly never alone. We never lack for what we need, if we ask and believe, it will usually appear when we need it most.

 

A healthy spirit requires that we feed ourselves on a daily basis. A question was posed to me by a friend recently, “What do you do to add value to yourself as a person everyday?” I argued that the question was subjective to one’s opinion of what is considered valuable to one’s self and you would have to essentially guess what is of value to another person based on their perceived senses of what is valuable in their opinion. But really, does their opinion count when you ask what I do to add value to myself?

 

So I took that question and expanded it in a way and asked myself, “ What am I feeding my being?”

 

I broke this down on the literal level, physical, what am I putting into my body on a daily basis and is this adding to or taking away from my overall energy and vitality level? This led to some alterations in diet adding more of what I felt when I asked my body what is it that you are needing, what it had requested, more leafy greens as one example was an answer I received.

 

I then expanded this idea into what was my environment feeding me? My friends? Television shows? Music and lyrics? Commercials and advertisments?

 

Again in assessing this, I found that there was a lot that was not really feeding me but feeding off of me in terms of energy consumption. So again, I began to adjust things in my life to only have those things which lifted my spirit and made me smile around me.  In doing these things, I found, I was more easily brought back to center and peace, when life and it’s events and people knocked me for a loop. I found that not having to deal with all that other stuff, allowed me to have more time and energy to focus on feeding myself the right ways. More meditation time, more time to process how I felt about things that occurred during the day or ponder solutions to challenges that had come up. It allowed me time to focus on my healing and clearing out my own closets and applying the techniques I have been teaching others for a long time now.

 

Now this is not to say that I stopped helping other people, but what I did do is set boundries and I made time for taking care of me too. Healers often fall into the trap of feeling obligated to work til there is nothing left for themselves. It is I believe very important to not fall into that trap of burnout.

 

When people talk about doing the inner work…..

 

What we are talking about is looking at those things which continue to present themselves in our lives. What is causing us to be fearful? Some say that all things boil down to two emotions, Fear and Love. What old tapes have been played since you were young?

 

For me, abandonment, no love, betrayal, and not being heard were big players in my life, and when I was done looking at them, my final conclusion was I didn’t have to have those things from outside sources. I had to have them for myself. To have the expectations of people to be like me, to think like me or experience and come to the same conclusions about life the same as me were big players as well. The idea that I had control or wanted to have control instead of just allowing things to happen.

 

Taking an honest look at how we feel about things, how we are reacting or responding is usually a reflection of something within ourselves which is not in balance, needs healing and release, or some adjustment in perception. Looking at the past on the levels of observer, what gifts did we receive from that experience. Even the most horrific experiences offer some lesson or gift of knowledge or building block for something we encounter in the future. Such as deeper empathy for one who may go through a similar experience in the future. Had we not walked that path, we would not be able to reach them as a person who had survived and was able to move forward to be there for them at that moment. There is always a silver lining, at times, our pain doesn’t allow us to find that lining, but that too is part of the journey.

I am sure I will come back to this topic more in the future, but for now, I would like to close this message today with this thought. Suffering and pain are increased or decreased by our ability to accept or our need to deny what is. How can you reduce your suffering by allowing yourself to accept what is? What are you not wanting to look at or accept about a person or situation? Your own judgment? Your lack of ability to control? The expectation? These are some of the kinds of questions we ask ourselves when we are doing our inner work. For our thoughts, beliefs and focus, bring to us what we feed ourselves. What we are receiving as input, learning, are we growing or are we holding onto an old way because it’s comfortable but it’s stagnant and still?

 

Be loving to yourself, forgive your trespasses as you forgive others who trespass against you.

 

In Love and Light and Oneness of Heart, Namaste. Kimberly

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Tomorrow night we have an amazing treat for all of you! The phenomenal team from the new hit internet television show ” Prophet or Madman”. This team will have you in stitches from the first moment! Crazy and fun guys with a great concept, and Ice-Cream Man having conversations with god! They are totally conscious! They are totally hysterical! And they are right on time! Come and find out who these two veterans of the entertainment industry are and what their latest project is all about! Read on to find out more about their backrounds and about the show!

Who are these wild and crazy guys! Steve Allen, a legend in his own time!

Steve Allen  … Actor … Co-Exective Producer … Co-Creator of the web series

Steve Allen boasts an 18-year career as a public relations executive during which time he has been either a founder or co-founder of four different media communications companies, Allen Mora Media, Enlightened Innertainment, and Talkaboutable Media.  His duties have included promoting and overseeing over 100 public relations campaigns, designing and developing ideas for clients, managing their careers and promoting clients’ images on local and national levels.  Steve is currently directing his own bi-coastal public relations firm, with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, which specializes in promoting material of an educating, stimulating and enlightening nature. http://www.SteveAllenMedia.com

He also had a career prior to the PR world in the world of the performing arts.  Steve was an actor and director. His theatrical works appeared on the stages of the Steppenwolf Theatre and Goodman Theatre in Chicago, the off Broadway theaters of New York, and numerous regional theaters of the U.S. and Canada..  Steve’s claim to fame in the world of television is his portrayal as the Father of the Ugly Baby character on The Seinfeld Show. He is a happily married man, with 4 grown chilren. Along his continued awakening journey, Steve can be heard often saying to his pals … “I am coming home more often and staying longer”.

Then we have the amazing Bruce Adams….

Bruce Adams … Featured performer in the web series, author of the book Prophet or Madman

Bruce Adams is neither a theologian, a Bible scholar, a pastor, nor a teacher.  In fact, he is now an ice-cream man.  He was a successful businessman for some 25 years before he had the surprise of his life.  On a Saturday morning in 1996, when Bruce was poised to launch a potentially huge moneymaking machine, he took his 9-year-old son, Michael, ice-skating.  “There I was, gliding along, listening to the music…when all of a sudden, something happened.  The music, as well as the sound of the people, seemed to fall silent, just as if I had become temporarily deaf.  The next thing I heard was a voice.  This voice was unlike anything I had ever heard in the past.  It seemed to be not limited to my mind, but dimensional.  By this, I mean that it was both internal and audible at the same time.  I did not know how to take what was happening to me, especially when I saw that I was being given specific instructions to change the direction of my life.  I was being told to forego this million dollar business project  because there was something else I had to do.”

Thereafter, Bruce began a regimen of daily meditation.  His perception of life was drastically changed, and was replaced with something far different.  “Life, it seemed, was taking on new meaning.  Faith that there was something more was replaced with direct experience.”  Then one night ” I was sleeping and unaware of anything that was going on in my dream state, when I experienced something that made the voice I heard earlier seem trivial in comparison.  The best I can describe it is to say that I felt wide-awake, yet I knew that my body was resting.  I was both in the body and outside it.  I could think, but there was no need to.  I saw myself, for lack of a better word, as a formless consciousness.  Where was I?  There was nothing familiar about this place, because it had no form, and at the same time there was the sensation of comfort.  It was like the feeling of comfort you have in the safety of your own home….In that moment, I became aware of the whole of Creation as one presence.  Upon coming back into my thinking mind, I recall being told to write about what I had experienced.  I jumped out of bed and got my pad and pen”.   The book Prophet or Madman was the amazing result.

then there is the third party to this trio …..

Chris Johnson … Executive Producer and Co-Creator of the web series

I’ve been an ordained minister for forty four years now, so you’d think I’d know a thing or two about these spiritual matters.  On the contrary, the deepest profundity I’ve been able to manage is to try to live my life in accordance with the Golden Rule.  So that’s what I do and have advised others to do through my social work as a founder of the National Optimists Party.  Yet on a personal level, the fact of the matter is that while, over time, I’ve found myself with an increasing sense of awe and reverence for the magnificence of creation, I’ve experienced a receding sense of understanding and familiarity with the Creator.  Imagine my good fortune to run into Bruce Adams, a fine soul whose ears are directly attuned to the Creator’s frequency.  I’m looking forward to learning a lot and enjoying myself immensely as I join Bruce and my good friend Steve on our lighthearted spiritual journey all across this great land looking for the soul of America.

I want to talk to you about accountability and  one of the things that as a being that is working towards evolving and expanding our souls  and becoming a higher vibration being, one of the practices we should practice in our lives consistently is accountability.What do I mean by accountability? Well, the dictionary meaning to be accountable for or have accountability about is: the act of being responsible for or liable for or the act of accepting the  true explanation or the true reason for. This applied to the human experience means to take responsibility for to be liable for your actions. To be willing to own your part in of the explanation of something that took place, the explanation result of something that said or lead someone to believe you did or were going to do.Be willing to stand by your choices and take ownership to your part for something that occurred  or that we said or lead to believe we would be responsible for doing in this dance we call life. In my mind there is one more step that in my opinion should be included once you are willing to acknowledge the responsibility and ownership for your actions and their part in things said and done, that in addition you should be willing to take and to deal with integrity, the consequences ,good or bad,  of those choices and/or actions. This accountability that I speak of is something that should be taken as part of the parameters that should be included when discerning your choices,  We should,also, apply those same parameters that should be considered before we tell others or lead others to believe, we will do, as well. We need to look at and consider,to the best of our ability, the scope of the effects that our choices of what we say and do could have, before following and acting upon those choices. This is, in my mind, what human accountability means.

Now that you know what I mean when I say that as humans we should practice accountability. I would like to share with you some of the far reaching negative effects or affects of when humans do not practice accountability that I have found and how some of these negative results were able to come to fruition and also the negative and sometimes possible lethal consequences of this lack of accountability caused to someone that should not have experienced. Firstly,I want to state that all of us like to be the hero of the story our own and everyone else story too. That really is not going to happen because for each person there is a hero, and they are, every single one of them, competing for that title of “Everybody in the entire universe’s hero”. So the most we can hope for,that is available, is to be a hero of your sphere of reality and that, with effort and diligence and focus can be phenomenal! Having said that, trying to continually and stubbornly trying to always maintain the hero status even when we aren’t saying, acting or doing hero like stuff,  is one of the things we have to help our to keep our ego in check with. This is one of the main challenges along a few others, that we face while we are working at practicing accountability. Another one is that old and big gun of the dark, (drum roll please), fear!!! Well I got a bit off track, back to some examples of what can be a negative result or fallout to innocent bystanders when people do not practice accountability. Here are a few example showing mild to lethal, these are ones that I have either experienced or witnessed myself. The first one is a mild one, the second scenario shows how it could have been much  worse, we’ve all experienced this one, I had mad e an appointment with an appliance repair fellow as my refrigerator had begun to make bad noises on a Friday late afternoon, but I was not made aware of it before it was too late to call for repair, and by Saturday late morning the fridge part had stopped working and that evening the freezer was sinking fast. I called on Saturday and tried to get a repair person, after several tries I got a hold of someone who of course the soonest was Monday morning but he was able to give some info that would save my fridge from being totally fried until then. Monday is rather hectic as it is the day before our show so I am running here and there, but that day I had to rearrange everything to move my out of the house appointments to the late afternoon. So when Monday morning arrived I sat there waiting for the repairperson, they said that they would be there between 8 am and 1 pm, I waited and I waited , nothing. I called the office and left a message at 12:30 pm. I didn’t get a hold of anyone until 1:45 when they informed me that their tech was sick and they had rescheduled me for Friday(which was totally unacceptable it was my fridge for God’s sake!) Just a note here: I wouldn’t have known the appointment had been canceled or changed unless I had called! Now it was simply inconvenient but if I hadn’t by pure luck called another repair person who just happened to have two repairs that had changed their minds and decided to purchase new appliances I wouldn’t have been able to get it fixed until Wednesday afternoon, and I had called every repair place in our yellow pages, by then my fairly new fridge that I got when my mother passed would have too costly to repair and I would have had to buy a new one which I could not afford as I had an important upcoming business 3 day expo thing that I had to attend that was out of town that I had to buy 2 roundtrip airline tickets and hotel for two for three days not to mention car, f ood etc, which was strapping in the first place and I was a month behind in my mortgage at the time (bad financial moment). If I would have had to buy a new fridge, I wouldn’t have made the expo and then I wouldn’t have met the contacts I did, and I would of been short on cash another month not been able to pay my mortgage that month either and I would have never been able to catch up which could instead of  just being one month behind in my house payments, it might have led to loosing my home, and all because the repair person did practice accountability. Now here is a simple lethal example of what could take place:something simple like not calling someone that you won’t be there to pick them so the person is late coming back to work because the person who said they would didn’t,and because the person was late lost their job, and that sent them over the edge and they committed suicide. I know that sounds erxtreme but, you would be surprised how many of those seemi ngly small acts of not practicing accountability have led to those extremes and in some cases probably led to all out war! This lack is not just about phone calls it is also about shifting blame for what you are really responsible for never taking responsibility for the outfall to others or making it about someone else which causes pain distress and even death at times. Remember the butterfly flapping on one side of the world causing disater on the other. Everythoing and everybody are connected and what you do or don’t do what you consider when you make choices effects and affects a way bigger picture than you can imagine, and if you expect others to practice accountability so do you and not just when you feel like it etc. Practicing accountability is not really that hard, and doing that not only saves others from suffering etc. it also helps keep us in check as to what we do and say because we know we are going top be accountable we have a tendency to act and choose with mo re thought and inpeccability, we think, choose,do, speak in a more honest manner especially if we are going to be accountable for what we think,choose,do, or say. When we do things more honestly our vibration aligns with the higher vibrations, and that’s a good thing for everyone.
I would like to make a statement to those that are saying to themselves,”I always take responsibility for my choices and my actions!”.If you do always, I commend you, but I suspect, if you look back there was at some point you didn’t. I just want to remind you that sometimes our scope of acceptance of that responsibility is limited as our ego has narrowed our scope to how big of a picture we are able to see, by convincing us that somehow we are justified in our or exempt from being accountable for ourselves etc. because of judgement of our fellow man as to there worthiness or that you are not accountable because the other person did something to us or others, or that the other person is”bad or evil” or that “they deserve whatever they get, that it’s alright because YOU as well as the general consensuses of “everyone” or the mythical “they” said so, or soc iety has by their opinion has made them less human that they do not nor do the effects on their life deserve to be even considered when we are discerning our choices, our accountability. We as humans, including myself, like our memories at times is selective. By definition if you want to live and act with integrity with impeccability to walk the true path of light, raise and align with the higher vibrational energies, we must act and be and choose to be accountable for our choices and actions no matter what, wether it is easy or comfortable or hard or difficult. To be accountable for your choices and actions of what you think, say, choose and do. It is about what YOU do, not about what others do, have done. To think, choose, act with accountability,that is something that has no exceptions, no gray area. Remember, when it is all said and done, when karma and/or dharma is considered by God and/or the universe, only you will answer for what yo u do, and others will be the only one to answer for what they do. In the end all of us who believe that the soul goes on forever in whatever way your belief system subscribes to, we will be at some point be held accountable for our choices and actions and no one else. So, it serves us best in reality to think, discern, choose, act with accountability to begin with, and of course, compassion, tolerance, love, understanding etc as well, all those positive and light filled high vibration things that make us really human.Love n Light….Petite Lion aka Lianna

Greetings and Salutations One and All! I certainly hope this blog entry finds everyone healthy and happy! Well it’s that time of the year when every red blooded American will be glued to the television, with family and friends celebrating the annual Superbowl Sunday! So in honor of that and our coverage of the L.A. Conscious Life Expo, we are pleased and honored to present Mr. Jack Allis! He will be speaking on Saturday at the Expo on 2012 and Earth Shifts and the power of ceremony. He has also written a new book and we are going to talk with him about that as well! You can find out more about Jack at www.JackAllis.com .

We are going to cover a bit about Jack and his work as our close-up for today!

Jack Allis is an author and spiritual teacher.  His most recent works are a book and a feature-length DVD, both with the title Prophesy, Challenge & Blessing – Visions of 2012 & the Shift. He also has a new DVD coming out soon, entitled 2012 & the Shift – The Power of Ceremony.

The message Jack is guided to transmit echoes the ancient indigenous prophesies, including the Maya and the Hopi.  We are living in an age of monumental transformation, in which one world is coming to its inevitable end, so that a new and sustainable world may be born.  The world is not going to end, but it will be transformed.  And there’s only one way to do this, and that’s with the higher power of our higher consciousness and spirituality.

Jack not only talks the talk but walks the walk of his message by being its personal embodiment.  He lives minimally and close to nature in a tiny cottage on Little Okauchee Lake in Wisconsin.  In his talks and workshops, he demonstrates how to practice and develop our spirituality through the use of ceremony, which includes prayer, fire ceremonies, music and chanting, with singing bowls and rattles, smoking the sacred pipe, and more.

He has also written two other books, Infinity’s Flower – A Tale of 2012 & the Great Shift of the Ages and Infinity’s Children, in addition to his popular monthly newsletter.

          We are honored to have the amazing Nancy Brown Joining us to talk about her passion, her life, her mission. Full Moon Farm is an organization dedicated to the well being of the wolfdog (wolf hybrid). Situated on 17 beautiful mountain acres in Black Mountain, NC, we operate as a federally recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization for abused and refused wolfdogs who find themselves in need of love, shelter, and care through no fault of their own.

         Full Moon Farm provides a safe haven for animals that cannot be placed into homes for the rest of their lives. Their rescued wolfdogs come from animal control agencies, closed breeding situations and occasionally, an owner in crisis. They evaluate each animal upon intake and work with them at their level of comfort. Some animals are “hands off” and they respect their choice, as well as that of the animals that crave human interaction. Their goal is to enrich the lives of the residents, allowing them to reach their highest potential. Support by donation or sponsorship makes that task possible. Though they may be abused or neglected, homeless because of death or divorce, they are all God’s Creatures and worthy of a lifetime of respect.

Our Own Petitelion Has Some Wisdom About How To Deal With Loneliness!!!

 By: Lianna Giovannoni

      It is highly improbable that anyone ever would decide to wake up one morning and declare to the universe to God “Let there be loneliness! Please God bless with the miracle of loneliness or ask for loneliness as they wish upon a star! Loneliness is not an item on anybodies “bucket list”( things they want to experience before they die) No loneliness is not one of those things that people find and are willing to die for or take an oath for ,devote their lives to. It is never included in a small child’s silent prayer before bedtime. There are no monuments, walls, plaques, etc. that have been erected in honor of loneliness, no encouraging or patriotic or devoted slogans for loneliness(Give me Loneliness or give me Death!LOL).Loneliness is relegated to stories and poems and those are referred to as tragedies or tragic poems.(Dictionary meaning: a medieval narrative poem or tale typically describing downfall of a someone. or a story,poem or play that ends in some misfortune., a serious drama typically describing a conflict between the protagonist and a superior force (as destiny) and having a sorrowful or disastrous conclusion that elicits pity or terror , the literary genre of tragic dramas, a disastrous event ( calamity misfortune). Yes, there are poems and stories etc. that use lonely or loneliness to describe something like the look of a tree or the sound of bird, like ” the only thing on this remote mountain were just clouds and lonely pines, or the only thing that could be heard in the dark was the lonely call of the owl”. The use of lonely or loneliness as a descriptor is probably one of it’s most positive attributes.

     Loneliness is worse than sad. Sad is an integer to the formula of loneliness, such as sad+(bleakness/desolate/alone)= loneliness or sadness x 2=loneliness….in other words lonely has sad in it. It is a darkness that eats you from the inside out.

     Alone is not lonely…Alone just means that you do not have company. Whereas lonely is an constant ache of absence, one that even if you are surrounded by people you feel isolated, alone, bleak, desolate, imprisoned by some invisible wall. Loneliness lays dormant in everyone of us waiting for the right catalyst to wake it up and begin to thrive and grow. There are an infinite amount of catalysts out there, as many as their are feeling creatures and beings in the universe. No one or no living feeling, thinking, being or creature is immune. Although some seem not to suffer from it’s grip as much but they do not have a complete immunity. I’ve even seen pets express loneliness and sorrow, like when on owner dies or when another of the household animals die or leave. I, personally watched with my pets this , we had a male and a female Siamese cats that were pretty much raised together, and when the slightly older male passed away,the female literally cried, would not eat, and even pulled out big patches of her own fur out. She would go each day for weeks to each of the heat register looking for him (for the last 3 years or so of the male cat Robert had a touch of arthritis and would lay on those to loosen his stiff muscles in the morning or when it was very cold weather) she would look for him and she would see he was not there, she would look up at me with such a sadness in her eyes and in her body language and she would let a sad wail that sounded almost like a young woman crying out in loneliness, despair. It was heart wrenching, she would not let anyone console her or touch her.

     Loneliness can not only come from loosing someone thru death, or absence but from a perception that no one can understand or relate to you or that you don’t fit in for some perceived belief or story that you told yourself that somehow you are different or less than and that no one is there that wants or would desire to share life with you experiencing all of life’s ups and downs, no one to share the joys and sorrows, no one that would or could understand you or would share or care the same opinion as to what you consider significant. That there would no one to make memories with that you can share together later no one to enjoy the little things in life with. Sometimes when there is a loss of a person you life such as a life partner, husband/wife or a best friend that you shared all of those things with for a long time, when they are no longer in your life due to death or a breakup because of that loss and the grief that comes from that it may seem to you that you will never be able to find anyone to fill that space in life the void left from those kinds of loss can create such a deep grief that it creates a wall of despair and an over the top feeling alone. Because of that deep loss because of the grief a very pervasive and unique type of loneliness ensues and nothing or no one will be able to change that sense of aloneness the grief of the loss the darkness the sadness that is gripping you, except for going thru your grieving process and the healing effect of time.

     Loneliness can also awaken and grow when you feel so different from those around you that you convince yourself to believe that there will never be anyone for you. You can experience and create a prison of loneliness when you perceive that an impenetrable barrier exists between you and everyone else due to language and/or cultural differences or you moved to a new area where you don’t know anyone or if you suddenly get ill or disabled or anything that you perceive as a barrier between you and other people.

     First of all like I mentioned before, alone is not lonely. A lot of times, alone is what is preferred,wanted and sometimes what is needed. It is important to be comfortable with your own company and to be confident that you are a complete whole individual rather than feeling that you are not enough or that you are incomplete. Sometimes alone is necessary for your mental and/or physical well being. Alone gives us the best way to get perspective for yourself to gain clarity on life decisions , be alone with your thoughts gives us time to meditate, process things or events, gives the opportunity to quiet the chatter of your conscious mind to reduce stress, connect with your higher self or with the Higher power, to ground yourself,or just to have sometime to not be distracted or influenced by others to just to get to know your true nature without any input from others.

     Back to lonely now….First of all I want to say “YOU ARE NOT YOUR EMOTIONS YOU ARE NOT YOUR STORY! AND ALWAYS BE PRESENT!”. Having made those statements I want you to understand that I will be clarifying those shortly, so just keep them in your mind to the side. It will come together just bear with me thank you. What I am about to say can be applied to any emotional response but we are discussing lonely at the moment so if you find yourself asking the question “what about sad, or anxious just substitute the appropriate word for the word lonely okay? So here goes nothing!! Lonely is an emotion that you tied to the story you told yourself or bought into from someone else that your ego told to respond with to with the current situation that you seem to be experiencing at the present time. If we realize before you respond to the ego’s advice that all the emotions is just a list of emotional responses that you have available to choose from as the emotional response to the situations that you perceive you are experiencing as you move thru each moment in your life. Yes Virginia “YOU CHOOSE WHAT EMOTION YOU WANT TO FEEL in response to your perception of the reality of the situation that you are experiencing ” not the other way around. I know right now most of you are saying to yourself (I can’t help what I feel, I control what I feel they just happen, they just are! Yes, I know it may seem that way, because most of us for most of our lives our ego and all the other egos that you have been around throughout your life from the time of your birth, the ones you learned from and emulated as you were growing up have led you to believe (thru no fault of their own) and reinforced over and over one of the great human untruth list is that “We are at the mercy of our emotions” That they own you, they are calling the shots as to your emotional responses. Well guess what? That is the human ego’s ploy to get you to keep you believing that it is real so it can continue to exist and be in control keep you trapped by fear which creates resistance to soul expansion and to create a prison, to put a barrier to blind you to the truth so to speak and continue to buy into the falsehood, the false perception of the reality of your true nature, to state that plainly… to continue the illusion of “That you are at the mercy of your emotions and the story you tied them to, that you don’t have a choice in the matter”! Now, I’m not saying that people and situations, and old programs that you bought into for one reason or another don’t make it hard to choose a more positive emotional response. Let me just briefly give you a side note to this. I want you to understand that with the aforementioned “old programs that you bought into” It is nobody’s fault that you bought into that there was some wrong doing or error in discernment or that you are “stupid and should have known better!”, that is not it at all. It is just one of those human challenges that all of face so that we learn and grow and evolve. It is built into the system of the human process of growth. No one is exempt, no one has the knack or talent to not buy into old programming, because when you bought into them they were necessary for your survival at the moment but once they are loaded onto your hard drive it is difficult to know when or to remember to delete them. Know this “EVERYONE IS CHALLENGED BY THIS AND HAS THE SAME DIFFICULTY AS YOU IT IS JUST PART OF LIFE!” so “DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP FOR IT PLEASE”!!!! It is just one of those things that is a standard catalysts for all beings to challenge us to learn and adjust and change things in the present so that we can have the opportunity to expand our souls, evolve as spiritual beings having a human experience. Bottom line,it is just part of life!Just like when we grew to adults from being children the average person’s bones lengthen and grow larger, and in puberty we get hair in places that we didn’t have as children, it is just part of becoming, well so is the program buying into thing. Again you are not your story nor are you your emotions. Anyone who tries to tell you or convince differently ….This is what I have to say to them….QUACK! Yes quack! Check this out, your emotions are yours! Yes folks, those puppies are yours to command! Yes, you too can choose what to feel as a response to stuff! Like I said before things, situations and people may make it more difficult to choose a positive emotional response, but with some effort and practice you can do it. As with anything that you learn, especially when it comes to changing old habits, old programs that we have used forever that really in the present do not serve us anymore it takes a minute to become successful at right away. Be patient with yourself do your best to remember to make the effort to slow yourself down, take a breath and as you do this stop the auto pilot decision making process and stop and take the time to think and ask yourself,”How can I stay in the present and choose a best emotional response for what I am truly experiencing now?…not based on what you responded to a similar story from your past that ego is trying to convince you still are but, on who you truly are from you true nature, from your high self, now in this present moment.With the intent of doing it for the highest good for yourself and the highest good of all. It does get easier as you go along and each time you remember to do this the closer you come to do it effortlessly and with a 100% success rate, and really you will be surprised that it will happen easier and quicker than you think! You may be asking yourself,” well how does this apply to loneliness? ” well, I will tell you. When you sense it creeping in and ego begins it’s existence saving dance running it’s jib in your head, trying to convince you to buy into it’s sales pitch. Take the time to look at the story or thought processes or beliefs behind why you are leaning towards choosing lonely as your emotional response, why this emotion is tied to the story why the ego is trying to convince you that this is the response that you need so desperately(from ego’s perspective) to respond with, why this present situation triggered ego to know it is time to get it’s licks in, why ego needs you to respond this way, what is ego’s motive and how this particular? response helps ego to maintain it’s illusionary existence? Ego is like when you were a kid and you had an imaginary friend that keeps sabotaging and causing trouble and because no one else can see them you get blamed for it’s pervasive behavior. Ego like the imaginary friend is forever trying to convince you that it is real, like Pinocchio before the fairy godmother got to him-he is not real and never will be , he will only able to fool you into thinking it is real and that you are the puppet! Well it is time to take back your throne be the ruler of your reality! It is time to pinch yourself and wake up and see that you aren’t the puppet and ego the puppeteer that you are the master puppeteer and ego is the wooden puppet! You are the creator and the master and ruler of your emotions and ego, they are to do your bidding, they are your subjects and not subject to them! When you are suffering with loneliness or that the situation that you are participating in is one that perhaps the all time best scenario for loneliness to thrive and grow and in the present moment you are not able to see a way out from your current perspective reality, that there could no other choice for you. Stop and without hesitation but with complete faith that no matter what things seem like it is truly an illusion do not believe it for one second!!!!!Tell loneliness to get out of town take a long walk off a short pier, take a hike! Turn and face it and see that it is just an illusion. Find your voice… use your imagination and create for yourself a much better reality for yourself by pulling yourself out of the illusion and create the new true perception of reality in your mind. Realize that emotions and stories come and go. Nothing stays the same, things change all the time, nothing is static. Even if it seems to you that it is the lowest worst moment of loneliness of sadness in the world and that is no way out of it could never ever change…Stop, breath, look at the story behind all of that fear, all the loneliness that you tied to that story, or belief/thoughts that aren’t you , are not in the present not your true nature, just not real and pull yourself out of your illusionary perspective and change your perspective to one that serves you better in this present moment, even if it is to incorporate this thought, It won’t be like this forever it will change because nothing is static. Maybe Close your eyes and hold on to that little bit and release the emotion(loneliness) as the emotional response to the present perspective of the situation . Say out loud if you want or just think it, it works either way, it is your coloring book your crayons, I Release it , let it go – then look at some other more positive way to perceive the situation as to why you are experiencing this based purely in the present moment from your true highest self change it to perhaps as an example: Maybe if I see this as something as this situation isn’t about choosing this to be bad but rather a gift of the opportunity to find a better way see this situation as a plus rather than a negative, an opportunity to gain than a loss, that it is for you not against you. you could change this into you have the opportunity to become a hero and to receive blessings by sacrificing and experiencing a little discomfort so that someone else will get an opportunity to get the chance to expand their soul their skill sets raise their vibration by getting a chance at to allow someone their chance to discern and choose to be compassionate, to recognize that one of their own needs their help , to motivate them to learn to be a better expression of God having a human experience, by motivating them to choose to become a more loving kind person, awaken them to their true nature, more of a true human being and discern and choose love and compassion recognize it is the time to give and transform themselves and receive blessings and grace which raises their vibration which raises the vibration of all humans. For your small sacrifice you not only do you get to be a hero and give someone a chance to receive blessings you get the chance to raise the whole humanity but you get to receive blessings and grace and to raise your self up which also does the same for all. So the point is look how much can be accomplished, look at the scope of the effect of just a small change in the way you choose to see things, change your perception of reality and your emotional response to things. It is so a win win win win situation for such a small amount of effort that it is just mind boggling for me. What a small thing to have to experience or that you have to put effort to accomplish so much.

So by changing in ways like this, taking that pause that moment, to slow down take that breath and adjust your perception of reality, let the old programming that no longer serves you go and eliminate that the loneliness story is tied to and choose a more positive emotional response to the present situation you become a big hero and everyone gets blessings.

     There are many surface ways to help you to accomplish these things to help with the changing your perceptions of reality of situations that you are experiencing with loneliness and it’s fertile ground for growth. Yes, surface ways, like joining a class that improves you, your body, your mind like yoga, or a class at your local junior college or something that you would like to see if it is something you might be interested in, there are many avenues for this such as local city town or rural community centers that offer adult classes at night or weekends etc. for things like arts and crafts, exercise, or dance, music, Internet and computer, parenting, golf, yoga and so on. These are good ways to break down some of the perceived barriers and to connect and meet people with similar interests. This a good way for humans to help prevent that fertile ground for loneliness. Some other surface ways are to join a spiritual group, or join a church or religious group of your own choice and persuasion, or create your own group of your choosing such as rock hunting, paranormal group, science, book reading, or whatever subject matter that floats your boat because I guarantee you aren’t alone in your interests. If you are sure how to find those people for the group[ you want to create, here are some tried and true suggestions for that issue. Advertise on your local bulletin boards in your local grocery stores etc, community centers, church and meeting centers, community colleges and adult education centers, freebie newspapers , or on the Internet sites like Facebook and Twitter or Crisis type sites. Volunteer for various charities in your community. If language is a barrier go to your local community centers and adult education centers or churches or spiritual centers and take a class in the pertinent language and from there you will find people with similar language barriers as you. If it is cultural thing, learn about the culture that you are living in, expand your being with knowledge and truth and with the knowledge you can understanding and release the fear and encourage tolerance in yourself and others or teach others about the truth of your culture which also helps others to release ignorance and fear and allows tolerance and compassion an understanding to grow. This not only helps to ward off the loneliness thing but it raises the vibrations for all. If you are disabled or are not able to go out and about, create a group that again is something that you are interested in or create a social network group of disabled or inside bound people or if you are elderly and are homebound etc. this social network group is applicable also, you can connect thru phone, or the Internet or something like Skype which is free thru the computer and you can have several people be able to meet virtually without ever leaving there residences. If you are able to each get an Internet video cameras for your computers you can actually see each other. Nowadays those kinds of things are fairly inexpensive and there are various federal, state and local programs that could help you. Don’t give up if you want to help yourself to choose something more positive this is a real good tried and true way to begin that process.When we take the initiative and realize we are the creators of our realities and do these little things it reaffirms to the universe what you want and need it is like an active prayer, it reaches into the Creator’s toy box and pulls out and brings to you the thing you want that is for highest good which with that intent brings the highest good of all. It brings the real magic that is in us by our birthright as the children of God. What it does, to put it another way, it allows you to connect and have the opportunity to find and share with you fellow human beings common interests and it changes the parameters of the situation and brings in the fertile ground for growth for the positive, breaks down your perception that there are barriers and replaces the barriers with clear smooth avenues to accomplish what just recently you perceived as impossible. This will make the growth of the possibility of loneliness less of a possibility to happen. I’m not saying it will eliminate it altogether at this moment of our existence but it will take it from a high and impossible to get over mountain to in the least a small hill that you face and if enough of us take this perspective it will a some point become a mere speed bump. It is however a step closer for all of us one day to make something that has been highly improbable to eliminate from the human experience to be eliminated within the human experience. All it takes is one person to tell or show one person and it will catch on and once again you can know that YOU ARE A HERO!

      So to recap for you, “You are not your story nor are you your emotions. Become aware and notice the story, the thoughts, the beliefs, the perception of reality that loneliness (or any negative emotions) that you have tied to those stories or beliefs. Release it. Take the moment to pause and take a breath ,and stop and think and decide and become aware change your perception of the reality of the situation, be present and choose the best positive emotional response ( and the list of all the positive is available for you to choose all the time with no exceptions!) based on who you truly are in the present moment. Play with them and discern the best one that serves you highest good and the highest good of all. Then congratulations are in order because you are now on the best and fastest road to becoming a hero in your own right to making loneliness(and if you apply that mind set to sad, despair, etc it will do the same for those) all those painful soul expanding and suffering causing catalyst for humanity evolving cease to exist in this current human experience(at minimize them enough that they are speed bumps instead of impossible to climb over mountains). For sure it is a fact it help you when it is your turn to experience those painful moments, you will be able to move thru them with the greatest of ease and grace and receive blessings for yourself and all humanity.

Greetings to one and all!  In this life we basically live in two worlds(multidimensionality aside) outer world and inner world . One is very obvious, just look around you. Notice the familiarity of it how well known they are. Notice that you can put a name to everything trees, grass, hills, people, sky, buildings, cars , also notice you can say what each thing is, for ,  their cost, how long they last , who owns them, how attractive they are how unappealing they are, what happens at the end of their days.Look at the people , observe how you can categorize them men, women, children, old, young, tall, short, friends, strangers, familiar, unfamiliar some you can even name them, dark haired, light haired . well dressed, groomed, casual, scruffy.   Notice how easily they fall into categories, assume labels become understandable almost predictable. The world of your basic five senses is for the most part, clear, comprehensible one, full of sights sounds, tastes , smells and sensations that all define for most of us on the most basic of levels what it means to be alive.

The inner world is the other world , equally at times vivid and integral on a basic level what it means to be alive, but, it is for the most us not as easily described or understood. This inner world of thoughts, emotions, imagination, dreams and the mystery being that is always with you that you can’t see in this inner world, the one that sees both worlds, observes everything you do, think, imagine and dream, every decision, every story every pause, everything on every level. From time to time even though  this person is always with you and always observes both your inner and outer worlds, we forget their existence like when we are fast sleep, or comatose(LOL), are absorbed in a task such as reading a real good book, or painting  or drawing a picture or creating artwork or something that takes all our focus  , watching an all absorbing movie, or listening to a moving story or piece of music or speech. This mystery person always re-emerges the moment we begin to think our own thoughts once more or when we wake up from sleeping or the coma (again LOL!) when we come to ourselves again. This mystery being if you haven’t guessed yet is (drum roll please!) our very individually assigned the one the only “I” ,” the me”,  the”self”,  “the mind”, the”numero uno”.
Think about it , how seldom do we stop and reflect upon the existence this elusive “I” , “the me” . Who is this person? Where is this person going ? Undoubtedly this person is experiencing life, but what actually is life, this strange, weird, scary,frustrating, at times infuriating, magical, surprising, joyful, wondrous, invigorating, safe, simple, complicated, long, short, confusing, clear thing which expresses itself through us, and for most of  the time balances us very uneasily between joy, happiness, contentment, clarity and safe and sadness, angry, confusion, fearful. What is it for? Does it have a purpose and if it does what is it? Can we know it, understand it? Can we know our role in it? The more we think and ponder these questions, the more we become aware that to answer the first of them is to answer all the rest as well. Because to know who we are is also to know where we came from and where we are going, and to know what life is and what, if anything is it for , knowing who we are  we will know what our role is or how we fit into it. Each one of these questions boil down to the one eternal question that has been asked since humans began , “Who am I?”  This eternal question from which all other existential questions come from, and on which they depend on for their meaning and importance. Since the dawn of our existence we have pondered this basic question of “Who am I?” and all of its subsequent variations and periodically some strange individual  appears and seems to know the answer , their answer though is usually strange or sort of cryptic, extremely metaphor like , they answer symbolically, or puzzle, riddle or parable like. then they give us an enigmatic set of techniques or practices through which we can gain the answer and  then when we ask for clarification on what they say or what the techniques or practices are for with regards to answering “who am I?”  then they seem to always respond by  implying  or eluding to, with a very confident  clear and concise answer of , that we can find the clarity that we keep trying to glean from them or  that we try and outright demand or threaten them for (in some cases kill them to get) that we can find that clarification within our own self, that “the answers” are all within us. We are thus being told over and over from those strange individuals that have appeared from time to time, that the answer to the eternal question and their subsequent variations of “Who am I?” is not a  formula that can be just handed to us by somebody else but a direct personal experience. It is very individual in nature. When you come to think about it what else could the answer possibly be, since it is we ourselves who are what we are.
Having said this, we have established that we have a very good understanding, familiarity with the outer world, and a lot more reference materials and education on the outer world as opposed to knowing or understanding of the inner world of thoughts , dreams, imagination, memories, emotions and the “I”, the “me” the self, the mind we have reference materials most of them come from other individual “I’s” other individual self’s which again like the answers from those strange ones can be guide line like but is lacking their completeness for the individual minds they can give you generalities  which is helpful to answering the question but since the answer to the eternal question is completely individual the reference material or practices have to be a helpful starting point for the answer but to completely answer it those starting points have to be customized to the individual by the individual . Although you may think that the question will never come up for you but, I am here to tell you that on some level in one of its millions of variations you will at least ponder it at least once. Really you can trust me on that, really you can!
Now that I have rambled on you are probably asking yourself  “,what the heck is this all about? What is her point?”  Where is she going with?”, and I say to those questions ….They are extremely valid!   What my point is that if you should want to know the answer to the eternal question and all of it’s variations and any subsequent related inquires that you might have along with changing or healing any part of who you are right now or improve add to who you are, which you  would have to know who you are first in order to change heal improve add to who you are. The answer that is tried and true and proven and the only real way that any one has been able to find is MEDITATION! MEDITATION!MEDITATION!.  Don’t get upset I heard that heavy sigh loud woe so please Before you walk away give me a chance please to explain just a couple things that you maybe aren’t realizing about meditation that there are as many ways to meditate as there are answers to the eternal questions!!!!! Their are as many ways to meditate as their are and have been people!!!!! There many books pamphlets, articles web sites, etc etc. that show us meditation and the various modalities of meditation but like answers to THE QUESTION they will always have to be customized to you by you!!  Not only will you be able to get clarification and some answers there is so much more that it can accomplish. I like to say that there are a billion reasons to meditate and not a single reason not to !!! I didn’t say that you might just find what variation works for you that you are comfortable with that takes care of what you need and that there are never difficulties in trusting it . What I said is there is not a single reason not to. It is about desire and perseverance. Ask yourself would you like to experience life but never really know who  it was who experienced your Life? Think about it, like anythi ng it is a choice.  Go ahead weigh the pros and cons , what you stand to gain  having the opportunity of your lifetime to gain all the possibilities and abilities that YOU are as opposed to knowing a very small  and limited view of you and your possibilities and abilities available to you to not know who experienced your life, in my mind  really the effort is way worth it..
The following will be one way in the billion ways to meditate that you can do that I found and many, many others found worked very well and can be used to accomplish a lot  and to understand and clarify and heal and know you. Remember the option is always there to tweak and adjust, customize for you.
I have found that the use and various different ways that breath can be used with meditation is very significant and enhances the benefits of meditation and in many instances is quite helpful in accomplishing what your goal is , what you it is that this particular form of meditation that you chose you felt would be for you. Breath work is always  a good thing both mentally and physically. You can’t live without breathing!!!  For those of you who have meditated for a long time you know what parts of this you know well . But the rest of this meditation just please roll with me people !!! ;-) The following includes breath work along with meditation, don’t worry it is not complicated you can do it , you do it all the time !!! LOL! First find a place where you won’t be distracted or disturb ed by phones, T. V. kids, dogs etc. (note: after you get the hang of it and that is an individual thing, you will be able to meditate with a few of the distractions, just like anything the longer you do it the more it becomes part of you, automatic in a way)  Wear comfortable clothes nothing restrictive you don’t want to be distracted because you can’t breath or something is pinching etc., get comfortable either sitting with your feel flat on the floor or laying with your legs out in front and just left to fall to the sides just let them just naturally relax. Have your back  completely supported. If this position makes it difficult to stay awake try the sitting position. You want to relax not fall asleep, where you are going is somewhere in between. For my tech’s out there It is called Theta state that your brain enters into.  Once you are comfortable etc. I like to pick a general subject of something that you are wanting work on in yoursel f such as fear ,anger ,sadness, frustration , you get the idea. Then after you’ve picked this general subject and what the area it of you or your life  then find a saying,  a phrase. a word that is a opposite energy or vibration of your subject such as courage, safe or joy ,forgiveness, contentment, abundance, and keep that positive focus on that opposite vibration, you can repeat to yourself if you like but just take a moment and hold that within you and focus on a clear picture of how you would like it to be with regards to the issue hold the energy. Holding the opposite positive vibration to your issue it cancels it within your subconscious and rewrites old programming that is no longer working for you. It is not something that will happen the first time it will happen after a time, they say it approximately 21 days to change behaviors, note the word approximately it can happen sooner it can happen later , but it will work. It will depend a lot on you and findin g the niche that works for you. Most likely it took you a while to acquire the behavior or the programming has been running for awhile before it was recognized it wasn’t working. it may take a moment to change it.
Now that you have your positive mind set close your eyes place your hands on your lap either palms up or down or facing each other just as long they are comfortable and not tensing. Now I want you to find the center of your head, find the top of your ears and draw an imaginary line from both sides of your head from the top of your ears and where they meet at the top of your head is the center of your head straight down to the center inside your head. Tech note this is where your Pineal gland is in your brain, and this is where they believe your imagination, psychic abilities, metaphysical and religious experiences are enabled here on a physical plane your the  part of your body, brain the allows that ability flow thru and be experienced in this physical form. Once you have located that destination the breathing starts, take one deep breath thru your nose that starts in the lower part of your lungs your diaphragm and let the air com e in from the bottom of your lungs fill from there up  . Blow out thru your mouth opening your throat and your mouth as if  as if the large breath you just took of fresh air will go to every corner of you collect any stale or left over useless negativity and when you open up your mouth and throat and expel the breath it cleansing your inner life force, blow all of it out of you; once again using your diaphragm on the bottom to push it all out so that the next breath in will be unblocked by the sludge of the left over negativity, it is like cleaning and sterilizing that takes place between batches of beer in a brewery. The vats are cleared and clean so that when the next batch is put in it is not clogged or contaminated by the last process of fermentation. After that cleansing breath take another deep breath thru your nose but this time try and hold it in for 9-12 counts then blow out, do three of these breaths as you do them focus on relaxing your muscles in y our face , jaw , tongue ( let the tip of the tongue just touch the roof of your mouth) , neck , arms , shoulders, back, internal organs, buttock, thighs ,legs, feet, as you breath, and hold the breath and exhale feel all the tension and stress and worries etc just flow out of you like a plug being unplugged in the tub it just releases into the core of the earth to be recycled and transmuted to neutral energy to be used again and revitalize the universe and Mother Earth and creation, if you want you can get creative and imagine a drainpipe, or a chute that is attached to your first chakra and the pipe or whatever extends about 6 inches of out on both sides of your body and runs down to the core of earth which is a big molten ball  or pyramid whichever resonates for you ,of iron that uses and cleanses and transmutes the energy to neutral so that it can be used in a clean manner. It is not wasted or having a negative or  pervasive affect . It clear s the path and allows the positive energies to flow in and take your issue and change it unencumbered by obstruction. If you use this simple breath work as a sort of ritual every time you meditate it will become a trigger for your brain so that you are able to achieve that meditative state much easier, like Pavlov’s dogs, after a time even in a noisy room or distraction filled place you will be able to perhaps achieve that state of mind of meditation or at least give you the ability to bring those times where you are overwhelmed and your feelings are becoming overwhelming, your blood pressure rising, perhaps fear is coming in, frustration etc. this will trigger your body in such a way that you will have an easier time of keeping a handle on those feelings ,and it help  you  to feel and be in the drivers seat rather at the mercy of the overwhelming feelings the stress that may be coming up at the moment and it helps to release certain chemicals to help your bod y to cope with the stress much better so our discernment when comes to the choice of our reactions to the external stimulus, it helps us to cope and choose balance in the times we find our beings overwhelmed by life. Now that you’ve relaxed with the deep breathes ;the next breath just go back to your normal breathing in and out thru your nose, notice your breath how it feels as you draw it in , follow it down into your diaphragm imagine the breath as a golden cleansing revitalizing  and renewing healing light that as it flows in it spreads out throughout your whole body down your arms an legs fills your head, every cell infused and surrounded by this clean vibrant life force charging every fiber and cell. Feel the tingles flow in as you follow the breath of life to the various parts of your body allow your simple act of breathing to help you to remove and clear any stuck energies or negative influences problems, obstructions let it renew and reset your inner being the real you with the outer you the mechanism that holds us and allows us all a spiritual beings experiencing being human to balance ourselves between the left and the right sides of our brains so that we return to our default positions where we function at our optimum. We become grounded and balance so we can see clearly where the issues are and remove and replace that which is no longer working for us for the highest good. Now I want you to imagine either steps that either you walk from the front of your head where you have been doing your preparation for your journey and feel the feeling of moving up and back to the center of your head, some use a tunnel that goes there other steps, escalators myself I think of Willie Wonka and his wonkavator where it was an elevator that can travel up, down, sideways, long ways, back, forward as you move back notice where you feel that movement in your body like when going up in an elevator, even if you don’t know by seeing with your eye s you still know whether you are traveling up or down , for me I get the feeling in my chest in the center. Notice that feeling and it for me is an affirmation that my visualization is doing the trick , when you realize that you can “know” that you can move your being to different places internally it opens up many possibilities such as if I can do it within and the physical reality of your body structure does not prevent movement then logically neither could the outer layer that separates the  inner and outer worlds. (This is just something to ponder.). Now that you’ve arrived to the center of your head with your positive energy or affirmation it is time to decorate your safe place. Yes, safe place! This a place you can go to that you are always safe and protected, nothing or no one can get in unless you want it there unless you invite it or them. This is the home base of  the control room whatever you would like to call it, where the high self hangs, the “I” goes when it is in default optimum position. This space can look or be decorated any way you want, it can be a luxurious room full of pillows or it can be a hammock under the palm trees next to a water fall or it could be something out of a magical fantasy, it is your “I” place the place of safety and healing it is the place where you merge the inner with the outer, a place of wholeness a place where you become the best expression of the divine expressing it self, centered, grounded, knowing, balanced , a place that we can find or ask for the clarity and/ healing. From this perspective we can look down thru the chakra’s, the dimensions of the body and look where perhaps requires clearing of blockages or where negative energy has attached and needs to be removed, this the place to release the positive energy or affirmation that you focused on before we started our journey that you brought with you this the place that you can release that positive vibration the one that carries the opposite peaks and valleys in it’s vibration to the negative vibration that the issue that you want cancel out or rewrite the program that no longer is for your highest good or the highest good of others. Take that positive vibration release it to flow throughout you entire being after it flows out thru every cell in your body imagine it flowing out your hands and finger tips and out the top of your head like a water fountain and wash over your body and aura and as it does see it clear all the sludge in and thru your aura and outer body as well as inner , see it repair and fortify any holes or dark murky spots in your aura and inner being, (note*if it helps for visualization purposes put a color or “look” to this positive energy that you have released such as I like to see it a clear bright sparkling fluid that have a gold and silver sparkles shimmering thru it sometimes I change the color of the sparkles , I use my intuition or feeling to determine its color or look, find what resonates with you at the moment, there is right or wrong to how it looks it is up to your own imagination, whatever you feel you want it to look like it is yours so it will do it this is your place .) For those of you that have been practicing meditation , this particular type of meditation even though it seems very simplistic or basic , it is but it is very powerful and there are many ways this can be used from this perspective there are many higher levels of meditation that can enhanced from this perspective. It is a good and easy way to approach meditation it allows us to be creative and gives us the choice to be active or passive. The universe does work very well with simplicity and visualization . We are bombarded with so many complicated and intense practices and situations in every day life that this very simple meditation practice helps us to release the misconception that it is difficult to connect with ourselves like only the elite with years of practice and devotion can or are deserving of the tools that we were created with. Understand this we don’t need to earn anything to use what is already ours, Remember “ask and you shall receive” , Keep it simple ; don’t get me wrong all those ancient practices are wonderful but this is not only very effective it’s fun and most people do not have the resources or the time to go through years of study. Most people that really could use meditative practices the most that need to be able to become whole are people that are not able to process or learn the more complicated forms those who simply do not have the time to do the more intricate practices or techniques. Surprisingly enough I have been keeping track of the success of this form as opposed to the more complicated forms and this way really holds it’s own it is as effective besides that it gives you the basic tools to allow those who perhaps the more intricate techniques or practices are too much or see m to be overwhelming and perhaps may make someone feel turned off from meditation because its seems to complicated for them, this particular type is something that they can feel comfortable with due to simplistic structure. Remember there much beauty and strength to simplicity. Less obstructions easier to access less chance for us to get in our own way. Even after all these years of practicing meditation and its many forms many modalities I still find this simplistic elegant creative straight up form quite useful and effective and I use it quite often. There are many options that you can use to build upon this type to add to it , direct it to for more specific goals, more room to customize to make it individualized.
Now back to the process, after release of the positive energy sit for awhile in your space and play with it if you like change it around, redecorate if you want. Sometimes you may want to get in there and clean it out it is up to you , listen to yourself your gut only you can decide what you need or want. When you are ready beginning to come back slowly by moving your fingers hands and feet and move up then slowly open your eyes and come back to the here and now, shake your arms get the blood going . Thank the higher powers or the universe and take a deep breath like you did with the beginning with the cleansing breath, then call all the energy back that you left past present and future see it as filling up a bucket full and when it is full pull the cord and feel it dump into the top of your head and flow down to your toes and down to the tips of your finghers and feel it fill you up and recharge, it is like filling your gas tank so that you are good to go , You’ve just had a tune up an oil change and now a full tank you are ready for life!! I hope that this has touched and given encouragement to at  least one person to begin to meditate to make this something that you do regularly like brushing your teeth, washing etc. because it is as important to our well being as taking care of our bodies, Thank you for listening, Love and Light to you all,xox Lianna

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Today I would like to discuss mindfullness. “What is that?” I’m sure you are asking yourself. Well in my definition, it is being absolutely present within the moment. Most people might think that they are truly in the moment most of the time, but if you really pay attention a lot of the time we are not in the present moment. We are in the future, past, lost in thought. Most of us check in and out of the present most of the time.

Spirit has really been on me about this particular issue of late, and I am sure that I am not alone.  What it means to not just know it but to own it and walk it and intergrate it into your everyday life. I was recently faced with a situation as most of you know, where in I had to come to a place of radical acceptance of another person’s decision. A betrayal, and several losses within a very short period of time. I shared with all of you some of the processes that I used during this time period. One of the things that I have found is that it is not so easy to stay in the present when chaos is surrounding every aspect of your life.

So I am coming to you now, having been exposed to some great new information from Sue Piver, who wrote the book, “The Wisdom of a Broken Heart” and Dee Wallace, who wrote the book, ” Conscious Creation” and from several other great books that are out there right now on the topic of changing our thinking. For what we focus on we bring to ourselves and we are creators that have the ability to change what our reality looks like. How we see things and perceive things has everything to do with that. These two dynamic ladies have come up with some fantastic hands on ideas on how to overcome the challenging emotional states we all get to at some point in our lives.  I have been using their techniques within my own personal life and I will tell you I have been astonished at how well it has worked for me.

I have invited them both to be guests on the show, and hopefully they will graciously accept. I can only tell you that it would be a complete blessing to all of you if they did. Truly amazing beings! Amazing books! Amazing results!

I have recently been attending DBT technique training and it is so interesting that some of the very techniques they are teaching for psychology now have their same roots as these two books. Funny how the universe works, especially when a message is loud and clear. The techniques help you to cope with strong emotions and emotional responses. It helps to reprogram the old programming from your earlier years and all up to now. You become self empowered to see how these very simple and quick techniques can change your entire perspective about life and the people in it when you begin to do the homework!

I challenge you all to the next time you feel in a moment of emotional overload, find simply 20 things in the room around you. Take notice of them and what about them caught your awareness. What you are doing by doing this is taking yourself out of emotion and into your mental bodies. If you begin to note where in your body your are feeling the discomfort and address the fears at the core of the emotion you can allow these emotions to pass through you without stuffing them.

The idea is to become aware of wha tis actually happening around you when you get to these crisis moments in life. Stop and notice what is around you, what is going on. Most times there is nothing going on. Whether you are in your car or a room, there is not usually alot going on when we are having these momentary melt downs. You begin to become aware of right now. Usually the emotion is coming from a past memory or a thought of what could be but it is not right now. This moment. As you begin to do this, catch yourself when you are on the phone or talking to your kids, see how much time you are really being present in this moment, versus, being in thoughts like, “I have this, this and this to do ….” or “If only I could get this going I could>…..” these types of statements in your thoughts are not what is right now. The power is in the moment of right now. You can create and choose in this moment only. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Right now is where you are and where it’s at! You will find that if you stay in the now moment you are less likely to experience waves of emotions that are not real but more illusion.

Look at the fear that is causing the emotional outburst. I am afraid to be alone, I am afraid to die alone, I am afraid I will never find love again, I am not worthy, I am not deserving, I am not pretty enough or smart enough, whatever tape is playing in your head at the base of that fear reaction, then counter that thought with I am never alone, I will not die alone, I will find love again, I am worthy of all good things, I am deserving of love and happiness, I am beautiful and I love myself, I am smart and funny, I am love and I only accept that which is healthy and for my highest good in my life, life flows to me with ease and grace, my lessons come with ease and grace, i am creation, these types of statements can replace the old tapes. These affirmations help shift what is causing the pain. Our stinking thinking about stuff. This is not to say life is always wonderful, this is to say these are some ways on how to pick up the pieces when there’s a million of them to pick up. The nice thing about that is you can paint your own picture how you want the pieces to fit! It’s your paint and your canvas how do you want your picture to look, make it so. We cannot control others or what they do or say or think, if we are trying then we need to look at our own need to control and work with it.

Try this mindfullness awareness exercise for a week. Let us know what results you found out about yourself!

Love and light everyone!

Kimberly
