Ode to Doubt: Yerrrrr Out!

36f7eeb562fb98bc7f7257f2cd4edbef

Ode to Doubt

Get out, doubt! Ya big fat hungry cow. Today I am choosing to live in the worry-free zone of the NOW.

You will not come between me & my passion. I have a love affair to nourish, a fortune to fashion. I have a heart to expand, horizons to stretch. My fuel is FAITH, I have higher planes to catch.

Doubt, you are no pal of mine. Belief is my partner in crime. You won’t  be leaving me in a pickle, with your bad attitude, & uncertainty that’s fickle. Your conniving little riddles no longer rock the boat, cause trust is my companion that keeps these water wings afloat.

I will invite you in, only if you win. I invited the fun, cause it already won. I invite flexible freedom, cause it casts no fears. I invite small pleasures, cause they make memorable days into valuable years.

Get out doubt! You’re just a pushy little swine. You only clutter, close, & callous the mind. Take a sabbatical, a retreat, a long overdue vaycay… dash off to where the warm sea-salted breeze can whittle all your whining away.

Doubt, you are young, dumb, foolish & unrefined. You’re undecided, scared & wasting my time. The tiny little space you rented in the house of my head is foreclosed. You no longer take up residence, are no longer opposed.

You may no longer stay, make me pay, ruin my day. Your time has expired… your fired! You’re just so plain uncouth & so rude, that I’ve decided to replace you with  little Miss Gratitude.

I burnt the box you were in, chimney swept you out. It’s time to go, my dear, please don’t scream & shout. Because I can’t hear you, I listen only to LOVE speak. The rat tales you spun are meager, hapless & weak.

Oh dear lovely sunshine… when you paint the skies today with your ray-filled brush of sorts… I will honor only the blessings that Miss glorious Gratitude courts. I will focus on benefits, bounty, beauty & wealth. I will embrace the sounds, the smells, the gifts of good health.

I look, I see, I acknowledge, I feel, I know. I allow, I am acquainted, I am connected, I flow. I am receptive & open, my heart is sparkly & spacious, my soul is on fire, my spirit is vivacious. I sit & bask, sleep or relax, take the scenic route & drive for miles. Doubt, you’re only a raindrop… in a bucket of contagious smiles.

Rowdy Doubty-pants… I’ve unpaved your silly plans. Sunshine & happiness are my newest friends & fans.

Sport that Diamond sparkly crown, give it all you’ve got! Flip that frown upside down, run & jump & hop! Life is good 🙂

Be gone doubt! Steeeeee-rike!! Yer OUT!!!

NEW BOOK Risin’

tumblr_muvemygckj1qdt6e2o2_1280

Click here for:  FULL SYNOPSIS

Folks ask me all the time, so, like, whats the book about?

So, here’s my elevator pitch

It’s a laugh-out-loud commentary on how the world & its people are bat shit, deep fried crazy & we are all sandwiched in the middle trying to skip over the mustard & mayo puddles without slipping on pickles, crying a river from the onions, getting caught in the goo of melty cheese, or stung by a hot ghost pepper.

It’s a survival guide, a manual on Manifestation. A non-fiction journey of bits & pieces of my life & why I think I’m qualified to write such a manifesto. It’s a big fat wonderful resource guide like phone books were in 1980. It’s an indispensable aide for all those looking to enrich, enlighten, evolve, emancipate & straight enumerate… more of that good stuff we all innately seek.

It’s a book on how mastering the Arts of meditation, mindfulness, & manifestation can & will give us all we need to prevail in a world gone mad… so that we can reel our sanity back in from the rough seas off the coast of Crazy-town.

Finally,  a book with a sass mouth  that tells the unabridged truth, breaks rules, & pummels right through Author etiquette with a great big sass plow.

It’s refreshing.

Curious? Good.

It’s current. It’s raw, real & fresh. It’s coming soon.

I write articles on my blog to reach people. I write books to assist the evolution of mankind.

Regular people. Anybody with an open mind or heart. Anybody wondering, questioning, confused, frustrated or misguided. Anybody inspired, learning, growing, evolved, or enlightened. Anybody walkin’ down the street, in a store line, on a phone, texting, talking, working, playing or sleeping. Anybody who is simple, or complex; sad, or happy; annoyed, or elated. All of it.

The Twelve Step Program is outdated.

Click below to LISTEN to this blog post! Then… share this! #SpreadAwareness

Attention: all those who wish to be liberated from the limiting beliefs & restrictions of backwards doctrines. Whether it’s religion, or Narcotics Anonymous or a program being imposed (inflicted) upon our children via secular school curriculum. Today, I will talk NA, for the sake of the countrywide “crisis” we now face as a Nation, & quite frankly, also as a worldwide race, sinking deeper. Pull up a chair. Check your ego at the door. Hear me out.

Since this is the day & age where Opioid addiction has become so prevalent & destructive that it has been declared a National Health Emergency by our current President, I believe that this conversation is very necessary. The Opioid crisis spans waaaaay back in time. I guess people are just noticing, all of a sudden? I guess it’s time for the government to capitalize on it, jump in on the greed game, with Big Pharma, rehabs, doctors, & detox facilities. They must have felt left out. (mmm-hmmm)  Regardless of the reason or timing or motive, this article is about a much more important topic. It’s about how Twelve-Step Programs are outdated, & quite frankly, in my seasoned opinion… sabotaging people to stay stuck on a merry-go-round for the remainder of their “clean & sober” lives as a “Recovering Addict.”

Even though Twelve-Step programs are the most accessible formats offered in our society, to assist those attempting to get & stay clean, they are not the most effective. Would you like me to repeat that? Twelve-Step programs seem to be in place everywhere. More or less, they are the leading protocol for all recovery seekers, however, just like old outdated programs in the mind that need adjustment, so does this program of protocol in our society that says: Twelve-Step programs are the be all end all best solution to maintaining a clean life. That is a misconception that has been ingrained into our society.

Even though the Twelve-Steps can be very effective for many people in need of guidance, redirection, or respite, as they contain a workable formatted guideline to redefine your journey… they are written with an outdated perspective. Comparable to the many wild mythologies & parables of the Bible that are racist, sexist & outdated & certainly would be much more understood & relevant if revised to meet a modern morale & standard.

The Big Blue Book has the right ideas, & contains plenty of nutrient rich intel, don’t get me wrong, but still… if we look at the big picture, certain outmoded content needs to be significantly altered in order to avoid the pitfalls of the past (the revolving door) & ultimately attain better results, going forward. “If we do what we’ve always done, we will get what we’ve always gotten.” Hmmmmm… don’t I recall that poster hanging on the wall of every rehab, detox & meeting? NA, needs to follow it’s own advice.

The Twelve Steps need to be adjusted & rewritten to meet a new improved standard of accountability that speaks more to our empowerment than to our powerlessness… at the very least. It’s 2017-18… I’m surprised no one has done that yet, frankly. Aren’t you? Well, after some Google research, it seems there are a few revisions here & there, but unfortunately, nothing was ever universally implemented.

Meetings are everywhere, especially for the weary. In any city, state, & country one finds themselves… no doubt, there’s a meeting down the street there. NA & AA is a HUGE organization with a cult-like following. I get it. But, true recovery is an inner journey. If people are not redirected properly, they will end up latching on to anything they can get their hands on, including meetings & other people going through the same thing. This usually poses a threat to our sobriety, because people are essentially not outgrowing dependence at all, but reinforcing it instead. No longer reliant on drugs or alcohol to get by, now they are reliant on people & a flawed culture of people that keep announcing aloud: they are addicts. On top of the fact that these groups are likely filled with a shit-ton of ex-cons, thieves, liars, & manipulators with criminal behavior & addictive personalities who very well likely relapse frequently. Who very well likely seek comfort through sex, or ban together to do more dirt than what got them there in the first place. Which at the very least, is counterproductive. I’ve witnessed & experienced this first hand, over & over.

Yes, Twelve-Step programs are free. meetings are free. It’s the most accessible means in any community, to connect people to recovery resources, aide, or help for sobriety. It’s like a big church of sorts, for any kind of addict to attend. They welcome everyone without judgement or discretion. Remarkable indeed, but it still doesn’t change the fact that once a person walks through that door, they are expected to do two things to remain there. One: admit they are an addict over & over again by stating aloud “I am an addict” every time they announce themselves to talk… and two: buy into the belief that addiction is a disease. Both of these concepts are counterproductive & are not accurate within the context of Universal Law.

Universal Law states that the I Am principle of deliberate creation is how we harness & own our divinity/personal power. Stating: I am an addict, over & over, each time you verbally represent yourself to others…. is sabotaging the mind to believe you are still an addict. Would you like me to repeat that?  It’s complete opposite of what living a clean life aims for. “I am a recovering or recovered addict,” would be more suitable. But, even then, the I am statement is still making a declaration that is essentially keeping that person trapped in some kind of stereotype of recovering addict persona. The goal is: to change how we identify ourselves. If twelve step people are constantly identifying themselves & others as addicts in or out of recovery, then they will just be stuck within an identity that is limiting. We are in the business of redefining who we are, so that we do not see ourselves as that addict or that struggling person in recovery. We must change the way we view ourselves & our lives & paths, with our imagination & creative visualizing faculties. We will see results faster & easier & we will make significant lasting progress rather than temporary baby steps that likely get lost & buried within the next relapse. And oh, I can almost assure you… there will be a next relapse.

From a self-proclaimed non-Twelve-Step successfully recovered person’s point of view (mine)>>>>> I sincerely believe, going forward, that non-Twelve-Step programs are so instrumental to effective change in the recovery community. For anyone that wishes to stop being a serial repeater of the same patterns & then relapsing incessantly… there’s only one choice: seek your local non-Twelve-Step program. Make sure it’s legit. There’s financial assistance out there, don’t believe the hype that says there’s not. It’s accessible to you, no matter what class or race or ethnicity you are. Make it happen. No excuses.

Regarding that “disease” notion…. I strongly disagree. A disease is typically described as something either terminal or acquired unexpectedly without our consent, not chosen. Addiction, though predisposed to some extent due to genetics… it is still not a disease. Calling it a disease is putting a label on it that makes it sound inescapable, terminal or something out of our control. Addiction is none of those things. The Twelve Steps teach that we are powerless over our addiction. But, this is a false statement. Once in the throes of the active compulsion of addiction itself, we are powerless in a sense, for we are being possessed by our insatiable desires. But, once we detox from whatever the obsession is… then we gain back our power & can thus exercise our own authority then to rise above the compulsion that once controlled us. We can consciously choose to reverse the damage by changing how we view ourselves, life & the word addiction.

Addiction is not a disease, it’s a temporary compulsion that can be transformed & channeled into a more balanced personal stability via self-love, physical activity, meditation, creative visualization, lots of emotional purging & cleansing & ultimately the rewiring of the mind. No one said it was a quick fix. But, it doesn’t have to take forever either. And the Twelve-Step program is not the most efficient road to recovery. It’s definitely flawed, on many levels. Calling addiction a disease, is keeping people stuck. Point blank.

Choose life. Choose freedom. Choose to name yourself not “addict” but, person with a message on a mission with a plan & a purpose. A person who graduated from the sting of addictive behaviors & moved to the next level because they wanted to, chose to, consciously, deliberately chose to, because they were sick of being sick & tired. If u want to be rich, hang out with rich people. If u want to be a successful human being with little or no vices, then hang with people who practice believing in greater things, talking about greater things, moving in brighter directions while leaving the past behind. Not a bunch of poor me’s in a room, all gathered together chatting about war stories all the time, smoking cigarettes, & drinking watered down sugared coffee with powdered faux creamer. Folks who gather there are typically validating negative patterns & practices & reinforcing bad behaviors by & through always running over the same ground together. And, it is made worse when the fraternizing is done with the newbies that are still likely in the throes of their addiction secretly, or very close to it anyway.

I know Twelve-Step programs mean well, but many times they can be a cesspool of seriously unhealed dysfunctional people with problems, criminals, ex-cons, drug dealers & users alike. And since sex is not against the law, these dysfunctional people without their main vice, now gravitate toward each other, to fill up the empty spaces. It’s a big shitshow, if ya ask me. A big shitshow with no qualified leader at the helm…with any kind of behavioral, spiritual or psychological credentials. The speaker that day, is essentially just a person who is another “Addict” just one drink or drug away from full blown relapse, no matter how many days or years clean they may have accumulated. As if this will ground them to their sobriety, they stay with a coin in their pocket or a colored key chain to remind them of the collection of days they have under their belt, when in truth, all it is, is plastic or medal. What counts is what’s within. The rooms don’t keep us clean… it’s the development & strengthening of our inner sanctum that does.

I get it, though. I’m not trying to be mean. I’m just not a fan. I am not denying that AA & NA have saved millions of lives throughout their days on the scene. It’s a program that works if you work it indeed. But, it’s certainly not fail-safe, & it certainly could be cleaned up, (no pun intended), to be a lot more effective, if ya ask me, like re-wording the Twelve Steps etc. Stop calling addiction a disease & defining it as a terminal thing people are stuck with for the rest of their lives. And, stop making people identify themselves as the “I am an addict” persona. It’s totally counterproductive. To the max. We need to teach people life skills, coping skills & how to tap resources from within, as opposed to moving from one crutch to the next. A street drug to a prescription drug. Teaching people to “surrender to a disease” is a funny way of teaching people self-empowerment, don’t ya think?

It’s time for people to start recognizing how addictive behaviors are formed & implemented in a person’s life, so we can see how to prevent that going forward. What’s the root cause? The root issue? What’s so empty inside? Where’s the location of the emptiness? Is it mere boredom? Or is it more gripping like… hopelessness or helplessness? Where does the fear lie? Anger, hatred, resentment, sadness, regret, guilt, madness, confusion, depression, aggression, greed, fear, scarcity, lack, limitation, self-loathing, mistrust, instability, insecurity, fear of failure, fear to succeed, lack of self-worth or self-confidence. Find the source of the grief & work it out. Because, that’s the sure culprit of any compulsion.

The more we feed a compulsion, the more the brain’s chemistry & climate changes to accommodate the mind-altering substance or activity, which means the brain begins to become malnourished, poisoned, lazy, mismanaged & ultimately wires & signals get all kinds of crossed. Which also means, it will take more work to inevitably dig out. Hence, rigorous mind-body-spirit overhaul, which will likely take years to undertake in order to see real results.

The brain is a computer of sorts that is very susceptible to toxicity, just like our bodies. Ya can’t expect to continuously poison the body with preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, trans fat, straight sugar & sodium for a long period of time without consequences. Eventually the body begins to change its chemistry & break down. Diabetes, stroke, heart attack, obesity & depression will thus ensue. The only way to combat the toxicities & reverse the damage, is to quit cold turkey, the consumption of all toxic food & drink, & nurture & nourish the body back to health with exercise, lots of water, healthy leafy greens, fruits, veggies… prayer/meditation, & practicing new improved habits. Eventually, the blood pressure will even out, the cholesterol number will level, the diabetes can reverse, the excess weight will drop off, an air of joy will begin to replace depression, & sloth will certainly turn to ambition. But it takes, time, discipline & dedication. It doesn’t happen overnight. The longer the body had been exposed to the toxicities, the more damage has been done, hence the longer it will take to undo. Sage advice: Practice patience… she will be your most treasured pet & ally. Treat her kindly.

Persistence, dedication, commitment, willpower & self-empowerment via self-improvement will win back all personal freedom & reinstate a new lease on life that will graduate a person to a whole new level composed of immeasurable great heights. Soaring potentials realized. Regarding addiction, compulsions, obsessions, diseases, illnesses, sickness, distress, worry, regret over the past or anxiety over the future. Whatever the hell needs to be addressed & renovated… faith in our personal Divine capacity to co-create change, with the powers that be (God-Force/Love/Light)… will be our SOLE SALVATION.

Don’t be an amateur.

Peace.

SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training) is an international non-profit organization which provides assistance to individuals seeking abstinence from addictive behaviors. The approach used is secular and scientifically based using non-confrontational motivational, behavioral and cognitive methods. Meeting participants learn recovery methods derived from evidence-based addiction treatments. Substance/activity dependence is viewed by the organization as a dysfunctional habit (rather than a disease), while allowing that it is possible that certain people have a predisposition towards addictive behavior.

The SMART Recovery 4-Point Program helps people recover from all types of addiction and addictive behaviors, including: drug abuse, drug addiction, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse, sexual addiction, and problem addiction to other substances and activities. SMART Recovery sponsors face-to-face meetings around the world, and daily online meetings.

[Those admitted to our San Diego rehab often tell us that they struggle with the labels of “disease” “alcoholic” and “powerlessness.” Also, wording contained within the 12 Steps makes reference God, and this can be alienating for individuals who are secular, or whose sense of faith has been weakened.

AToN Center is a program that was founded on non-12 Step treatment principles. Therefore, our Center was designed as an evidence-based best practice model for treatment of addiction free from the barriers many people experience with 12 Step only treatment programs. AToN

Center’s San Diego rehab offers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as the clinical underpinning to all of our groups. We discuss an individual’s potential to change from the basic premise that in order to change behavior, you first need to change your thinking and learn emotional regulation skills.]

Believing in your Dreamz: A commentary

FB_IMG_15018419668052a1a611dbf5b0b177912d529aa8fb1d1

Anyone can write a book.

Whatever that book may be… it has to be believed in. If the Author doesn’t believe in the book, it will get lost in the sauce, get the shaft, & most likely be archived on a dusty shelf some place. That said, authoring a book & then standing behind it, takes a bit of brawn, a bit of courage, a bit of belief, & a bit of serious faith, especially when the content of the book was built from your own core convictions. In this case, the required level of faith is much more significant.

I can’t hide behind an imaginative fictional story I made up. Instead, it’s raw, real, authentic & uncensored, like when a person wear’s their heart on their sleeve sorta thing. I’m putting myself out there so to speak. It takes a bit more bravery & just a dash more dignity. It’s like when a comic jumps on stage for her debut & thinks: “But what if no one laughs?!” And then against all odds, she’s puts ’em all in stitches & makes ’em pee their pants. I won’t make ya pee your pants. But I will shmooze ya with good humor & wild oats. But hey, if ya wanna pee your pants, it’s all you, bra…

I am a one man band that uses all readily available tools to publish my work independently. Self publishing is widely accessible & user-friendly in our current culture. It looks like a bunch of people do it all the time, & somehow it looks easy & effortless. Well, it’s certainly not. It’s a thorough undertaking that must be meticulously crafted & flawlessly executed, & that takes a conscious awareness & core commitment that is unprecedented. Just sayin’…

I’m not trying to boast. I’m not here to conquer, compare or compete. I’m sure there is something for everyone out there in the great mega-verse melting pot of vast sprawling publications. As an Author with a mission, & a message, I’d like to acknowledge how  we are now spotting the map quite generously these days. There’s also quite an emergence of those of us rockin’ enterprises such as seminars, retreats, programs, plans, workshops, cruises, classes, speaker forums, & live symposiums that are extensions of our books.

Everybody claims to have the answer. Everybody’s got the secret formula. Everybody’s got the trendy assessment or clever fix. Everybody’s got the perfect route to freedom & fortune. Everybody’s a coach, mentor & motivational leader. Everybody’s got that thing that everybody else wants. And believe me, I think that this wildly exuberant display of global self expression is glorious. Furthermore, freedom of the press, speech, & religion via the First Amendment is also glorious.

I’m all for these inspiring schools of thought & brands of armchair philosophy, hard core study or just plain depth of life experience. But, there is so many of these self proclaimed gurus now-a-days. We are popping up everywhere it seems, with a website & a buy now button. I’m guilty. We all seem to want to give sage advice, teach tight programs & strategic success plans. It can indeed be over whelming. Instead of seeing that one shiny gem, it blends all together instead like a big fat blinding blob.

Reaching people is an Author’s forte, & making a positive difference with every page turned, is the dream realized. We write because it is our passion. We write because we feel there is a need in our community for what we have to say. Folks are always striving to be better people in some way. People are always looking for improvements & ways to make their lives easier, brighter, balanced, healthy, wealthy, enjoyable, organized, & efficient with more time & less stress & worry.

I’ve stood in long lines to catch sum of those good rays, from all the greats. My bookshelves are buckling & my folders, favorites, & emails are madly multiplicitous with said self-proclaimed gurus. I’m a fan. I’m super supportive of all these self liberating trains to paradise, for sure. Choo! Choo! All aboard! And as much as I do indeed support everybody else’s dreams, I am here today to specifically endorse mine.

So then, before you hop any other train, wait right here first & let me show you something that may be a better deal. Allow me to buff out the blurr & hone in on my little shiny book gem. Not to toot my own horn, but, the new book I’m about to launch just may well be all you need to move forward on any path of personal of development. Brace yourself… here comes that special author belief thing I mentioned earlier… 🙂

>>>>>The principles in the book ooze enthusiasm for life lived in thee most advantageous way. With unhindered advancement, uninhibited character, & unbridled energy, said Author (me)… will bedazzle you with her flow. And, I am not just saying that cause I’m her. 🙂 The reader will benefit thereof, instantly… without having to make a commitment to a project, program, schedule, timetable, or special engagement, & without having to purchase a ticket for a show, take off, attend some pricey weekend retreat or sign up for a webinar yay long & with yay one-time-fee. Not to mention, said reader will be entertained the whole way through with comic relief that is woven right in so silky smooth… like Fluff-a Nutt-a Butt-a & a brotha from anotha motha…

I’m not gonna give my book away for free. My TM teacher back in the 90s, told us that he was charging each of us a fee for the program, because he believed that if ya invest in something, you will be more likely to pay attention, take it seriously, & thus take advantage of it. Turned out to be true. As a result, I diligently learned the skill of Transcendental Meditation effectively at that time. I practice it to this day. I’d say that it was worth every penny. That said, the cost of my book will be reasonable & better yet, like you scored it on the buried discount rack in the far corner of Books-a-million on a rainy day with a scone & cinnamon latte in hand.

I’m writing this little briefing to invite people in. If you are pretty much alone in the world like me, weird things go through your mind like, what if no one shows up? What if no one cares? Not having a significant other, parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, kids or a close circuit of local friends & family that you know for sure will be there indefinitely to support you… kinda feels a little risky to say the least. And no… I don’t belong to a Church. And no.. that’s not what I need or something. Love when people say that. Anyway, basically… I have nothing to lose, everything to gain, & I would be a damn hypocrite, if I didn’t move forward on my path fearlessly despite the whistling tumble weed.

My #1 fan has paws & a tail & if Miss Moose the cat could talk & type, she would be my advocate & agent, I’m quite sure. Special thanks to all my wonderful colleagues & sweetheart clientele at the restaurant, for being so interested & supportive of the fierce creative endeavor I’ve embarked upon with untamed spirit. And to all my friends, fam & loyal fans spread out across the miles, who continue to read, give feedback & show love… your presence is Golden

This new much anticipated book I’m about to launch, is about living your dreams & manifesting prosperous winnings every moment of every day from here on out… from the inside out. So if that is what I set out to do, than by God, Sally… I’m gonna do it! No matter what the little cretin nitpicking voices yip yap inside my head… the thick brawn of this Author… will believe & achieve with sure SUCCESS. I won’t accept anything less at this point. You are either in it to win it, or not in it at all, in my view.

That said, you are invited to join me on the crusade to vibrate at a higher frequency, be best versions, & live life to the fullest. All ya have ta do, is grab your copy as soon as it pops on the scene.

And, to all those who are ready to win it!
Affirmation:
<<<< “I am wildly SUCCESSFUL!!” <<<<

The Book of Beautiful Feelings: a patriotic peek

Chapter Eight: POP CULTURE

American holidays 

Let’s bow our heads and take a moment to visualize the great American flag strung way up high in mid-air, above all the buzz, just free in the breeze. It’s quite a sight, and such a rich symbol of strength, triumph, and achievement.

Many warm thanks and praise to our soldiers and troops present and past. If it wasn’t for their valiant sacrifices, we would not have the precious privileges that our special beloved nation affords us so freely. United we stand, divided we fall; American military muscle gives us reason to stand proud and tall.

Big city to small town USA… multiple faces and multiple races gather far and wide. American freedom and liberty are so wildly celebrated on the Fourth of July by all its respective beneficiaries. Better known as “Independence Day” and rightfully so, it is America’s birthday, the day we honor our land of the free and home of the brave. Flags fly everywhere, to salute our nation’s good people, heroes, and rich history. Patriotism is on full blast.

The star-spangled fever everyone seems to have, is contagious. Camp trips, picnics, parks, festivals, concerts, sports games, and BBQs. Parties, clubs, beaches, pools, amusement parks, reunions, and gatherings…all with one last thing on their mind. All going out with a bam boom bang! The beloved classic all-American grand finale event: the firework display! oooo……ahhhh….

To me, fireworks splash huge extravagant colors in the sky in order to exclaim our nation’s united enthusiasm for who we are and what we stand for. Fireworks are the sparkler candles on the big fat birthday cake of our freedom. It is certainly a very meaningful annual celebration, which is inclusive of all American people, despite our differences. It’s a birthday celebration we are all invited to. On July Fourth, if you get the chance to fly in an aircraft across the states low enough in the sky, I bet you can see the plumes of pretty sparkly colors spouting out from all over the continent. Yay U.S.A.!

Frienemies Versus Kindred Spirits

I am gonna go ahead & rip up the rulebook now. I think it’s time. My writing career has reached that season, as my spirit has evolved to the hum of holy holographic heights, & my range of worldly motion has reached prolific peaks. Click Follow. I’m on a role & plan to stay here.

This blog is essentially my online magazine of sorts. It was originally launched as a website to promote my book, but it has now evolved into a weekly publication of various informative & entertaining articles from all different directions. God works in mysterious ways. I am who I am, & if you don’t like me, where I came from, who I roll with or the powerful presence of mind I may have, oh well. Keep it steppin’ then. With that said, here goes my newest invention, ripped with style & grace as always. Thank you for attending the service 🙂

If two people have nothing in common, they don’t hang out. If two people disagree, they work it out, agree to disagree or go separate ways. So why do so many people mindlessly spend so much time around others that harm them, cramp their style, tarnish their ideals, victimize their hearts, & steal their mojo? It is simply not necessary or good for ya even. And, that’s around-about what this article will touch upon.

Supergirl

Super Zapp! Here to shed some lustrous rainbow faceted diamond light again, folks.

I am gonna start with something a little taboo, though first…Since these days people seem to like to be lured into reading as if lustfully enslaved. I am gonna do just that from now on BTW. People do oftentimes read books still, but circa 21st century, they seem to read em on an e-reader. In the dark ages of the 80s & 90s…lol… folks used to pick up a mag walkin’ thru the local convenience store line, nowadays everybody reads headlinesonline.

Speaking of books, ya can’t help but notice the significant levels of endorphins that arise when one engages in the activity of reading escape-worthy delicious novels. The handsome hunk of a hero prevails, the seductive damsel in distress is rescued & ravished, vikings & villains have this sexy talent for illuminating intrigue, & the townspeople are all interconnected in mysterious rather promiscuous twined tales. The games they all play are riddled with scandalous wild forbidden provocative pursuits. Blood pressure rises, hearts beat with a bit of butterflies, & flying by the seat of the pants on a wing & prayer is quite stimulating, erotic & esoteric even. Spray me down with a hose there, Bill-bob…my ears are hot, my cheeks blushing…

I am not so sure how I intend on integrating that salacious edge into the prose I compose. But we will soon find out together. Mainly, cause I usually don’t see what’s comin’ til it gets here.

Sex & spirituality coming together in one sentence, on one platform… in not two separate chairs, but quite frankly…on a very cozy hammock. Swinging back & forth, & back & forth again, on the air & breezes of a lazy summer day. Happy together. Drawn to each other like two entities swirling in a magnetic cosmic dance of sorts. Essentially, exploring the many hallways of “a good-time.”

Can’t have a successful union without the consummation of sex with a spiritual backdrop. Period. Sex without the spiritual backdrop will be the kind that just feels…kinda empty afterward. We’ve all been there. Ya live & learn as they say. Some of us may still even be there, no biggie. I’m sure you’re open to improvement, & that’s what I am here for.

 

With that said, to be on the same wavelength & energetic pathway where chemistry is a no-brainer is to be kindred spirits. If one decides to lay down with a person who doesn’t fit that profile via matching them vibrationally (said kindred spirit), the sexual encounter with certainty, will be lacking & unfulfilling any further than the act itself. Then when the lust factor subsides, what’s left…is very simple: blah. Yes, you heard it right…BLAH is left. lol. Leftover buzzes work to mask the blah. But, when the rose-colored glasses come off…one see’s how senseless & unmeaningful it all was. Hey, it’s all a person’s preference. If you are the type to be cool with the surface illusion of a great time masking the truth of a rather spiritually toxic time…that’s absolutely your god-given right to choose, baby. Who am I to judge?

Goin to the bone-yard without a condom or a clue…is just plain stupid if ya ask me. Sex with a kindred spirit on the other hand, always has a sweetness to it. Like fruit from a tree… so naturally satisfying, all aged to perfection with sunshine & raindrops, bursting with nutrients & flavor. Now what’s not to like about that?  That’s what I’m talkin about. Ya just can’t go wrong. If you wanna eat raisins, it’s certainly your prerogative. But I like grapes much better. Plump, alive & juicy…. OR… dead, shriveled up, & preserved with sulfur. You choose. lol

stocksy_txpd789b8bc6yy000_small_687797

As long as two people are connected to each other by way of wavelength… then energetically their spirits will thus blend & bodies will then just follow. It’s law. Easy breezy. Can’t feel crappy after that one…unfulfilled or shameful. It’s a “good time” not just cause of the benefits, but because each person’s soul gets fed too. It’s quite natural actually. How it goes down. hahaha (no pun intended).couple-in-love-drinking-coffee-in-coffee-shop-2-640x426

Two people blend & bond & benefit each other sexually & spiritually if they indeed are kindred spirits. If they are…then unconditional love is present within the union & the God-Force dominates & orchestrates their togetherness shared. You don’t have to be married to have that. You don’t have to even be exclusive or monogamous. Not that I am in favor of promiscuity or promoting irresponsible “free-love.” I am just saying that there doesn’t have to be a requirement for a label or expectation until the two folks decide otherwise. Communication is in place just for that very purpose.

hqdefault

What I am speaking of here, is a brand of sexual connection that is healthy, healing, holistic, happy, & the ultimate rush, I think. The ultimate high. It makes perfect sense, for those of us who have grown tired of outdated dating. For those of us who are looking to change up the so-called rules & regs of the sex game. Trade out the dirty socks for clean ones….it is indeed 2017, last time I checked. A redefining of plenty of things is surely at hand, & that definitely includes sex & spirituality.

Things just unfold easily when you are in the arms or presence of a person who gets you. It’s never a trying experience. Time not only flies, but typically disappears. The quality of thoughts & feelings exchanged is enchanting. Magic seems to be all in the air. Things make sense. The environment begins to fall into focus. Warm vibes crown you both. Each is a muse to the other. No shortage of smiles. Giggles shall be plentiful. Mutual respect & admiration is king. You CARE. And, hugs, hands & hearts blend like butter & toast.soul-300x250

We obviously cannot have loose sexual boundaries with all of our kindred spirits. But we certainly can allow ourselves to feel good with each of them. It’s perfectly natural to favor a kindred spirit in such a way that your presence is complimentary to their flow. I personally, want to help up your game in any way I can. I want to be an asset to folks. I want to accentuate the good & great & powerful aspects of a person just by being fully present & aware. I expect, command, & decree the same in return. We weren’t put on this Earth to put each other down. We were born here to build each other up. And in order to do that, we must have open hearts, which I will explain further in a sec.

As I just mentioned, not every kindred spirit you meet, you will have sexual chemistry with. But, make sure the one you are sleeping with…is indeed a kindred spirit. Some kindred spirits are work or school ones. Some are family ones that you are related to. Some are friends, young, older, male or female. Some are both friends & lovers. All…serve individual purposes in your life. And, there is nothing like a life chock full of kindred spirits.d8053138b9a521481928f0a39808a173

It’s fun, it’s rewarding, it’s like a pleasant afternoon walk through life’s various scenes & circumstances…with little or no opposition or “frienemies.” I say “Frienemies” because the> “enemy in the brush” as I call it…is usually someone close. The more we excel as humans who identify with the spirit having a human experience, the more we supersede the attraction to us of said “enemy in the brush.” We essentially graduate “Red Flag School” with Aces, as we have learned the art of spotting the snake in the grass a mile away. No more do we endanger our lives, or jeopardize our progress, by accidentally allowing some brand of enemy to come around or scope us out. The static interference of the enemy in the brush no longer corrupts the sound system. Crystal clear sharp vibratory frequency then thus ensues, as all the folks in & out of our lives are…the “right ones”>>>kindred spirits.img_4253

When we have developed to a point in our personal evolution, where we are not tarnished or tainted any longer by past hurts or pains from residual effects of former relationships…that means that we have deliberately dug up certain weeds & consciously planted new seeds. We have done this in order to allow ourselves the opportunity to fully breathe again, & to honor our natural birthright to experience life to its fullest.

Humans seem to be so darn good at playing a victim role, self-sabotaging & depriving themselves of their true gifts, talents, joys & pleasures. It’s quite disconcerting. It’s time for us to grow out of these nasty habits & patterns, & replace them with new improved standpoints of being… where we shine way brighter, & tap unlimited resources within us rather than relying on temporal fleeting flawed elements in the material reality. Cosmic consciousness is eternal, infinite & immortal with limitless potentials. I say we learn to pick fruit & flowers from that garden.

Many folks are indeed doing themselves an injustice when they continue to cover up past pain via substance overuse or distractions. The acid reflux of the repressed emotions will continue to haunt & taunt until they are regurgitated completely & discarded &/or the emotional ties are severed via cutting cords. Snip! Snip! Snip! Up, up & out! Up, up & out, my friends. Locate it. Look at it. Let it go. Breathe in the good life. Breathe out what no longer serves you. Inhale prana life force energy. Exhale all toxic densities. Ghosts be gone!

As I stated before, we were born to this beautiful 3-D Earth plane planet to serve each other, lift each other up, not break each other down, or chew each other up & spit each other out. With that said, we must unquestionably have open hearts. What exactly does open heart mean? well, unclogging the Heart Chakra via unearthing & unleashing stuck old harbored hurts, guilts, fears, resentment, shame, pain, bitterness, distrust, disappointment & heartache, would be a nice big fat healthy jump off to the uncloggage process.

A little Chakra Ed 101: The 4th Chakra is the Heart Chakra. The Heart Chakra is located in the chest area, the Heart Chakra bridges the lower and upper chakras. It’s the bridge between the physical and the spiritual. The color of the Heart Chakra is a range of shades of gorgeous green. It is linked with feeling compassion, love, acceptance and gratitude. So when it is closed or repressed, the emotions of compassion, love, acceptance & gratitude are impaired….resulting in the experience of being a prisoner to the “painbody” rather than living a sweet human experience with a sense of excitement, joy & freedom. A closed or semi-closed Heart Chakra will lead to a very unfulfilling existence that indefinitely leads to much suffering, & a slow lonely death, basically.

Chakra is Sanskrit for: spinning wheel. 4809979-small-copyThey are essentially energy vortexes made of light & color that spin & churn energy, transmute it & distribute it accordingly. Opening & cleansing chakras can result in increased physical comfort & significantly improve health & well being. Since we are mainly just focused on the Heart Chakra for now, I will give you a visual so that you may use it as a tool to cleanse & unclog, so to speak.

maxresdefaultThe Heart Chakra is related to the element of air. This is why conscious breathing & the letting go process is so relevant here. So while you are consciously breathing…visualize the green golden spinning light vortex. It spins at medium speed, clockwise. The colors of this chakra are emerald, jade, & teal green shades of a beautiful lush sparkly forest. Located at the very center of your chest, you may focus your attention mindfully. There is a smaller chakra as well called the “Higher Heart Chakra” located to the upper right of the Heart Chakra that spins white hot golden pink firelight. They work in conjunction with one another. The Higher Heart Chakra echoes into the rich vibrant colors of the lushy green forest of the Heart Chakra. Sometimes I like to imagine each chakra as an alive, living,  pulsing many-petalled light-filled flower blooming, if that makes sense. Can you see it? It’s similar to like when time lapse video segments are combined into a one-minute piece, showing a flower growing fast before your very eyes. To me, that is the gorgeous green petalled Heart Chakra. It seems to be… just sat there as if breathing in a state of eternal bliss & blooming. Quite cool actually.

In order for the Heart Chakra to be clean & open it must be properly maintained. Like the engine in a Mazzaratti must be serviced regularly in order to keep it at its full operating capacity for optimal performance. One could say, that the Heart Chakra is the engine of us. It, therefore, must be free of all build up in order to function properly. All its pistons must be free of gunk & lubricated accordingly, in order for the rest of the car parts to function at their best. Past pains keep the heart center either closed or clogged. If the Heart Chakra is not renovated & deliberately opened… then it will warp a person’s emotional reality & stunt their capacity to give & receive love. It will disable their ability to feel good outside of artificial temporal means or the usage of others to feel good like a vulture or vampire.

Love from within comes from the Heart Chakra. Self-love is seated there. The only way a person can be whole in this lifetime & position themselves for superior success on all levels, in every area of life…is to heal & develop the Heart Chakra. Period.

When we learn to become one with our own true identity through this…subsequently, we become free of the belief in scarcity, neediness, greed, & selfishness. We will experience much less grief in the form of dis-ease, suffering, pain, chronic sadness, depression, fear or anger. We will be more inclined to float above, so to speak, the constant undercurrent of human-hood. We will learn how to manage not being caught within the ebb & flow & push/pull of the paradoxical reality of the opposites, consequently letting it affect & dominate our moods & attitudes leading to the Bi-Polar Nation we seem to live in today.

What were once manipulations, now become manifestations instead. We lose the need to manipulate because we have learned how to autonomously manifest our own chosen realities. Who needs to manipulate others & circumstances in their favor if they have harnessed the powers of deliberate creation via the law of attraction from within? Becoming a master manifestor eliminates the need for competition as well, for he knows that there is no need to compare or compete in order to manifest glory or significant increase. There is plenty to go around. One does not have to take away from one thing to give to another. Abundance is just that: Abundant. A master manifestor versus a master of illusion with a poker face… is much more admirable & evolved.

Where we were once inclined to feed off the TV, mindless fruitless activities, food, alcohol, drugs, sex, or any kind of over-indulgent behaviors…such as over-compensating, over eating, over working, over mothering, over gossiping, over spending, over exercising….we are now more inclined to be balanced & to be content with the stillness of the moment. The here & now…as they say.

Living successfully within the present moment, indicates that we have now learned to bask in the sun of the ever present eternal now. Unmoved like a tall strongly rooted tree in the midst of a raging hurricane. Be that eye of the storm, the peaceful calm…in the center of it all. Affirmation: ” I am! The eye of the storm!”

We become masters of our own realities as we have learned to tap source from within as opposed to lookin’ all around & out & about for things outside of us to cleanse our pallets & stimulate our appetite for satisfaction & fulfillment.

As of late, anyone that has been following my journey will know, I have chosen to become Vegan. I am now choosing to only eat vibrant plant-based foods. I have chosen this, not only for the sake of animal rights but by consuming natural earthy elements only,  it assists my soul in evolving more freely & rapidly. Leading to a more peaceful existence undone from the conditioning of the past in such ways via the harsh DNA strands in slaughtered & abused animals, my world shines much brighter & life becomes more of an effortless journey.

The heavyweight of any toxin that may have been a hidden “enemy in the brush” of sorts, concealed & lurking in the foods or liquids I may have been consuming for so long, is now lifted. The elusive threat to my well being is now removed. My spirit is now freer to animate & orchestrate my behaviors, choices, desires, thoughts & feelings accordingly… and my life, body, mind & soul are the beneficiaries thereof.

I am a firm believer in freedom of will & choice. It is up to each of us to discern what our own personal requirements are. Jesus once said: “Know Thyself.” It applies here. If you are to choose to partake of meat & dairy, please choose to do so responsibly. Choose: grass-fed, organic, free-range, humane farm raised everything. And, keep in mind: Moderation=Maturity.

There is an ancient Hermetic quote I like to refer to with regard to these concepts. It is as follows:

“As above, so below; as within, so without. All is mental; all is energy.”

—Hermetic Law

original_etched-apothecary-bottle-kindred-spiritMy advice…stick with your tribe. Life is much more fluid that way. Within the context of a life lived alongside kindred spirits…is joy & peace; serenity & fulfillment at it’s finest. La Dolce Vita! And, one more thing…detox the Heart Chakra…& you will finally realize what you’ve been missing all this time 🙂

Gratitude: The Real Focus Factor

046cb08c4ba34d58145010b402cc821aThis is not an anomaly. It’s common knowledge that the practice & skill of the art of gratitude builds a certain positive momentum in one’s life. That momentum picks up speed & girth much like a snowball tumbling down a hill. The key to fortune & peace & happiness in all areas of life…is as simple as the pixie dust in a snowball, really. Turn on the gratitude… turn on the steady stream of focus on appreciating what’s good. By doing this, we become powerful beings that amplify light & love. We become unfettered by any & all predetermined limitations, barriers, blocks, or densities. We become free.

0f70987856711b5c5cea932ca740220a

The objective is to build the gratitude momentum into a driving force. Like the electromagnetic current running through the wire streaming to the light switch in the house 24/7. Like the blood coursing through our veins to the heart pump & back again in an endless flow of circulation 24/7. Like the County water supply rushing to the kitchen faucet 24/7. We must develop a continuum of momentum…of GRATITUDE…coursing through the veins of our life experiences, relationships, communications, connections, perceptions & expressions, in order for this virtue to be most effective. This momentum is composed of a state of gratitude via the vehicle of: the observation/(focus) on the good. Our own individual personal power lies….solely within our ability to do this. That’s a true statement…pay close attention: the more we are grateful, the more personal power we harness…to create a life of total fulfillment & joy.

I am fully aware that not everyone is on the same level of learning, same spiritual path, on the same page or even on the same wavelength. But we all can agree on one thing…a smile is a smile. And why are you smiling? Because you are experiencing a happy feeling. Guaranteed, we can all agree, if it is making you smile, you are in the state of appreciating it….whatever it is. So, whatever it is that makes you smile, feel good, secure, at peace, happy, content, warm, fuzzy, empowered, lifted, confident, strong, nourished, beautiful, blessed, included & loved…..observe that. You’re so much prettier or more handsome when you smile!  20161124_195648 (me… grateful for you taking the time to read this!) 🙂

Choose today, to develop a level of continuous observation, of all things that exist within your realm of experience, that are “good” & essentially… what you desire or ultimately want in life. Small manifestations & evidences of your fondest wishes, dreams & desires materialized…count. You may essentially want to win a million dollars, but only win 5$ on a scratch off…be grateful for that five dollar winning & it will multiply…what it is, is evidence of the momentum of manifestation….the more we focus on it the more girth & speed it will gain…the faster the momentum becomes….& voila! We have a winner! Ding! Ding! Ding! Publisher’s Clearing House shows up at your door :)! Point is, don’t ever get dismayed or discouraged…choose gratitude instead. Why? Because what you seek is always on it’s way to you even if it may not appear that way to the naked eye. No need to worry. Practice faith based on this premise. The genuine appreciation of the now, & all the goodies within it….is the most efficient manifestation accelerator & most practical way to fan the flames of your dreams & desires. The more you engage in gratefulness, the more miracles you will see pop up like daisies across the fields of your experience right before your very eyes. This state of mind is affectionately called: “the attitude of gratitude.” Therein lies the birthplace of faith. Like I said…there’s no room for worry….when ya have an “attitude of gratitude.” 9581a74c22c7fed8d22b42501e398709

What is worry?  Worry is the lack of faith. Moreover, Worry is a symptom. It is a symptom of the steadfast observation of lack, limitation, injustice, guilt, fear, sorrow, or the disdain for circumstances or people. The exact opposite of the observation of all things good that we’ve been talking about. Worry is a symptom of the pure observation of the not so good, if you will. The “downward spiral of good” versus the “upward increase of good.” When we are brave enough to behave in a manner that shifts that observation point to the “upward increase of good” position, we become grateful. A state of gratefulness elicits a state of carefree confidence that proliferates the emotions that compose faith.  Faith, is a symptom of a steadfast observation of the upward increase of good. This good is found in any & all evidence of the following things listed below: (and then some)

Abundance; wealth; health; luxury; riches; happiness; laughter; fun; joy; beauty; grace; friendship; love; goodies; snax; bonuses; rewards; plenty; excitement; stability; security; wonder; inspiration; respect; honor; caring; adoration; pets; nature; flow; affection; unity; community; harmony; success; celebration; exhilaration; elevation; satisfaction; playfulness; charm; ease; peace; tranquility; comfort; freedom; demonstrations of faith; demos of dreams realized; demos of Divine design; demos of small miracles, coincidences, gifts, rewards, blessings. 82678-grateful-quotes-about-gratitude

I’m sure we have all had someone tell us to “count our blessings,” as a child, on some occasion. I noticed recently, that now that we are all grown up, if we are “told” that… often times our ego mind hears a condemning command: “Count your blessings, son!” as we cower to the feelings of guilt over feeling like we have not been a good boy or girl & been thankful enough. With all due respect, the ego mind tells me that statement feels like a penance we are told to say after we confess our sins to the priest behind some creepy red curtain. And, if you do not obey, you will then be subject to the likes of Hell.

images-5Reminiscent of the former days of Catechism Sunday School class with wooden desks that smell like dust & pencils. The dense stuffy classroom air not even fit for a hamster tank. Not to mention the crux of it all, the crucifix, the ultimate sacrificial human lamb hung hauntingly on the wall not too far from the rather large numbered loud ticking clock. Both seem as if they will pounce off the wall & get you, if you stare at them for too long… as they work in conjunction to exude that perfect synergetic blend of guilt, fear, & deadlines. Oh that infamous clock & crucifix of every Catholic classroom. “Count your blessings children!” Said the scary dictator/nun/intimidating teacher with a yard stick. No wonder why my Dad’s generation had authority issues…lol. The heavy regime of organized religion was just another organized crime family…if ya ask me. Fear & control…not friendly teachers. images-4

Moving on…another trendy recommendation in the current pop culture Gratitude Movement is: “make a list of all the things you are grateful for.” While the list could be an excellent way to remember & review your blessings, unearth them & acknowledge them…more times than not, does this list wind up in some drawer somewhere, or if tacked to the fridge…it just becomes a part of the scenery & alphabet magnets. gratitude_list

With that said, my belief is that to explain the gratitude technique is much more practical than to tell someone to count their blessings or make a list & repeat it 3-5x daily, likened to a homework assignment. I would like to redefine the way we teach & learn gratitude. A new approach that mitigates the process, since the ego mind tends to be quite traumatized by certain historic or religious ordinances. We do not want the idea of practicing gratitude to feel like a chore, a scolding or an implication of bad behavior… where guilt then ensues, defeating the whole purpose of amplifying good vibes. Crossing the bridge over to Gratitude City should be fun & exhilarating! Let’s reinvent the way we travel there, shall we?

A damaged ego is the toughest customer whom we could attempt to sell a dream to. When dealing with a bruised ego, the art of coercion must be the mode of operation. In this way, we explain to the ego mind, how living in gratitude makes perfect sense. As a result, gratitude is then seen as harmless, an obvious benefit, & a gratifying experience. The idea of practicing gratitude becomes enticing to it & eventually it follows suit. It’s not what you say…it’s how you say it. This cannot be more true & applicable to all of life’s circumstances, from the transference of knowledge from professor to student, to the simplicity of teaching a kid to behave properly, or curbing your pet…even. Animals do indeed recognize the neg or pos vibration of your tone.

We all know that we are grateful at heart, while some of us focus on what we are thankful for more than others…most of us know better than to take things for granted in life. I really truly believe that most of us don’t even realize how self-sabotaging the mind can be. Thus, we often times will find our thoughts engaged  with disdain or complaints on how we just wish for things to improve or be better…as equally & frequently as with gratefulness. It is not our fault that we slip into this mind set. We were often times programmed this way since childhood, & in order for that attitude of gratitude or gratitude mindset to dominate our thoughts 100%, we’ll have to train it that way & practice accordingly. The good news is>>>>>>> the-gratitude-muscle

We all know that to be grateful is the key to a happy heart. The pop culture iconic Oprah Winfrey coined the word “grateful” for many of us in our day. We are thankful on Holidays. We are thankful for a meal. We are thankful when we dodge a bullet. We are thankful for mom & dad or a lover, neighbor or friend. We are thankful for the job that provides us with the means for monetary pleasures & survival or self-fulfillment & purpose. We are thankful for our energy, vitality, resilience…our gifts, talents, skills & abilities. We are thankful we can see a sunrise & breath fresh clean air. We are thankful to have an unlimited supply of clear clean running water & two legs to walk & run & exercise freely. We are thankful for our pets & plants for providing company, joy & oxygen. We are grateful for the health & hygiene of our teeth, our immune system, our digestive system, our nervous system, our heart health, bone heath, muscle memory. We are grateful to have a cell phone, high-speed internet, a fridge, a microwave & a mode of transportation. We have cable,  google at our disposal,  google maps to navigate us to the moon if we wanted! Whew! we have a whole lotta stuffy stuff to be grateful for, folks, I do declare 🙂12088405_10153745730563628_6844669273345758556_n

What if I told you, that what you focus on you expand. I’m sure you already know that. So let’s apply it shall we? This is much more than “counting blessings” or drawing up lists. This is a way of living…that will indeed effortlessly get you to exactly where you want to be in life promptly, with all the benefits & blessings you’ve ever dreamed of & more.

The ego mind loves that idea, I’m quite sure! So let’s begin…

We are now about to be mystified by the pure magic formula for wealth, health, success, freedom, & love. Dunt da da da! “Living in Gratitude!”

live-gratitudeWhat does living in gratitude mean?

It means…to be living every single moment in a state of honed in observation of goodness. We choose to observe the elephant in the room instead of the rats beneath his feet.images-6 Let the elephant in the room be: the obvious truth of the ever existence of good. If we are not talking about it…let’s start! Let this obvious truth be noted by our observations at all times.The obvious truths of the ever existence of good are: all things positive…how did I phrase it earlier? The upward increase of good. This is the obvious truth I speak of.  Anything representative or demonstrative or symbolic or reflective of bounty, beauty, success, satisfaction, brilliance, harmony, & the sweetness of life & nature. From the most minuscule example to the most grandiose display. If the only thing in that room (or your life) that you can find to be positive or fits the upward increase of good category, are the pretty flowers in the vase on the table in the corner….while everything else seems to be drab, dark, desolate, or dreary….focus on that! If the fact that your breathing is the only thing you can find to be grateful for….focus on that then. Seriously. lolgrateful2

In other words…through the eyes of an artist…if the only thing in the ghetto that we can put in that category….is the tiny bright yellow shiny butter cup sprouting out from the crack in the dingy sidewalk….then by all means, lets focus on that. You may then find that with this simple exercise, as you hold your focus on the buttercup, that a butterfly will appear, to add to the goodness & expansion of the “painting.” Catch my drift?

FunFact: (A=432 Hz, known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature.The Universal music of sacred geometry)

The constant 432 hertz live stream of consciousness that should be running through our minds at all times is: the formula for grateful observation. Observing only good. Making the wallpaper in the back drop of your mind’s room a live wallpaper of everchanging observations of upward increasing goodness. The elephant in every single room we walk into is what must be observed in order to be in a steady state of gratitude…hence “living in gratitude.” Ya know when something unfavorable happens, & someone says to you…”Look on the bright side…”? Well…”living in gratitude” is a just another way of saying… “My mode of operation is… looking at the bright side.

Notice & observe. Notice & observe. Notice & observe. EQUALS>>>>>

Focus & expand. Focus & expand. Focus & expand. EQUALS>>>>>

MANIFESTATION.

Being in a state of “living in gratitude,” makes our life’s main focus on: the upward increasing good. As a result, we essentially begin to expand all that is good in all the ways that good things grow, stretch, blossom, produce, bear fruit, grow gifts, express, extend, & accelerate further. We don’t have to know what is going to expand exactly, or how or in what way. The details follow suit to the focused intention on good. That’s the part where we can let go & let God, if you will.

Our job: We focus on all that we are grateful for.

Universe’s job: Deliver more.

Our job: Focus again. 

Universe’s job: Deliver even more.

gratitude-and-abundance

I’m gonna be honest….up until this very moment…I did not realize the importance of this old adage: “glass half empty; glass half full”

It’s code for: “Live in ignorance >or< Live in bliss.”

Very simple: either we train our brains to “live in gratitude”  by observing all things “half full” which leads rather swiftly to a focus on all things good resulting unequivocally with the expansion all things good.

OR…..allow the lazy untrained  brain to dominate, deceive, & sabotage us with shoddy glimpses of half glass empty observations. This will essentially end up making our lives miserable, dissatisfied, unfulfilled, & wired with all kinds of misfortunate circumstances.

Misfortunate circumstances are a direct result of living beneath the flow of gratitude, flopping around like a fish out of water in the underbelly of servitude. Serving negative vibratory frequency…by participating in the foolish practices of glass half empty observation. This servitude turns to slavery fast & we are then victims of our own self-sabotage, doubt & loathing.

We notice the less fortunate. We observe the less fortunate. We focus, we expand, the less fortunate. Period. Small way, big way, whatever amount of time we spend in an hour, a day, a week….playing for the glass half empty or glass half full team…will determine our fate, destiny, & essentially our life experience. That is how we take responsibility for the creations of our personal realities…here on Earth in our daily lives.

Allow me to make this distinction then: Being grateful is a temporary state that is fleeting. Living in gratitude, on the other hand, is a lifestyle that remains as long as you live it, & will undoubtedly furnish your life with unlimited miracles, magic & plenty.images-3

We Choose.

How much time do  you spend playing for the half empty team? How much time do you spend playing for the glass half full team?

“Check yourself before you wreck yourself”404604747-funnypicture-funnyquote-hahaha-reminds-me-of-due-date-you-better-check-yourself-before-you-wreck-you

Just how does one check oneself?

By asking yourself this: What team am I playing for? Observe your observations & you will know the answer. The answer then depicts your state & resulting condition. If your condition needs improvement in any way on any scale, then the best & only way to achieve that improvement is…to play more fully present for the glass half full team.

Check yourself defined: Catch yourself backsliding to the half empty team.

Prevent wreck yourself defined: Realign immediately with the glass half full team &….proceed happily & accordingly.

Gratitude…the ultimate alchemist! quotation-melody-beattie-gratitude-unlocks-the-fullness-of-life-it-turns-what-we-2-13-81
