Archived Hidden Wisdom

Every once in awhile I go through the archives of some of the Blogs that I read and a post title will catch my eye. I seem to find the most wisdom in these older posts than in the current ones. Yes, the current posts are good, timely and well written, but they don't necessarily trigger something for me, at that time.

To me, opening an archive post is like some people opening up a book of knowledge or wisdom and reading the first page that the book reveals. It's a bit of a magickal process that works. That page, or post in my case, seems to be a message from the universe.

One post just caught my eye from Ed Mills at Evolving Times entitled The Size of Your Segment Does Matter. BTW, yes it is a clean article. :)

In brief, because Ed does such a good job explaining this, is that we break our day down into smaller chucks of intention segments. For example, upon wakening spend a moment seeing the overall vision and feeling for your entire day, then focus an intention for the morning preparation before leaving. See the kids getting ready quickly and easily, breakfast on the table, lunches packed and everyone out the door with everything they need.

Once in the car, intend the next smaller segment the travel to work. See and feel the smooth traffic flow, the music you are listening too, being to work on time.

Before going in, take a moment to plan your next segment, getting into work, booting up the PC, making pleasant good mornings to everyone. Before your meetings visualize the customer's your will talk with being pleasant, the sales presentations going very well and the buyers signing the contracts.

As you are about to leave for the drive home, once again intend this smaller segment of how well the traffic will flow, the kindness of the drivers around you, the short line at the supermarket picking up those last minute items(s) before going home. And once home, before leaving the car, intend a wonderful and refreshing home and family time for dinner and the rest of the night.

Thank you Ed for posting this back in February and Thank you Universe for leading me to this gem of wisdom.

My next segment is my morning hygiene ritual...showering. I do a lot of intentional creating in the shower. It's a bit of a cleansing process for the mind. Although a bath is more appropriate. I now consider showers the shorter segment of a bath.

(Hmmm, I think I have a new article in the works now.)

ProBlogger: Tips Tricks and How To for Blogging

Although this site is not specific to the Law of Attraction I did attract this site to come into my awareness so I could learn to write a better blog.

When looking into the process of blogging, I came across many articles and sources of the "how to" nature of blogging, but the one I reference repeatedly is ProBlogger.

ProBlogger is a great site that gives tips and tricks to writing blogs, articles to write about, how to monetize your blog, it also includes links to other authors that have tips and tricks, etc.

Here are some examples of the wonderful information I've found on ProBlogger:

Blogging For Beginners

And for Random Blog Tips.

Whether you are starting a blog or an experienced blogger, I highly recommend ProBlogger.

Review: Bob Doyle's Wealth Beyond Reason program by Boundless Living

Bob Doyle, one of the presenters in the movie The Secret, gained his reputation through his Wealth Beyond Reason book and program that are available through his company Boundless Living.

Like many of you, I first came across Bob Doyle through his appearance in the movie The Secret. In the process of researching who the presenters were, I read Bob's biography. I was attracted to his site and his speaking style which struck a cord with me. He seems very grounded, logical and honest. I too am a bit of a logical person and with this subject of Law of Attraction, and touching on metaphysics, understanding the science is very appealing to someone like me.

First there is a free level of membership at Wealth Beyond Reason. Once you get access to the free material and you find value in that, then you can do what I did and sign-up for the full program.

With the full Wealth Beyond Reason program you get several ebooks:

"Wealth Beyond Reason" by Bob Doyle

"A Happy Pocketful of Money" by David Cameron

"The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace Wattles
This is the book that inspired Rhonda Byrne to make The Secret.

"Spirtual Marketing" by Joe Vitale
Joe is another presenter in The Secret.

"Wealth Consciousness" by Roger Lanphear

"The Everyday 12 Point Lifesaver" by David Cameron

"Raising Humans" by David Cameron

"Introduction to Wealth Consciousness" audio seminar by Bob Doyle

The "Wealth Consciousness Meditation" by Boundless Living Audio

Some of these titles you may have already come across in other programs or on their own as printed material. Being a bit of an environmentalist I tend to like ebooks. Not only do they save paper, I send them to one of my webmail accounts so I can have access to them whenever I have time to read and I'm on someone else's computer. You can easily print these ebooks and have a hardcopy if you desire.

I signed up as a full program member of the Wealth Beyond Reason program from the beginning. There are different levels of sign-ups that allow more access to program components at different levels. I just started out as a full member. Bob does provide a 3 payment plan that I took advantage of and gave me full access from the beginning and spread my cost over three months. Very convenient.

One feature I really like about this program, it's a lifetime membership. I paid once and will have access to the website forever.

I find the site very easy to navigate. The sites' navbar is on the left and available on every page throughout.

The "Before You Begin" section at the top of the navbar gives you everything you need to start the program, including an introduction to the program, links to free software that you might need such as Adobe Acrobat Reader and WinAmp MP3 player, the ebooks to download, the audio MP3 programs, bonus material and a step-by-step process for manifestation and using the program. For beginning PC users, Bob explains how to download and save files. He explains how to copy to CDs. He even has recorded the information onto CDs if you'd rather save time and buy the prerecorded CDs.

The program includes audio Lectures, Follow-up Seminars, Coaching Seminars, Expert Interviews, an Introduction to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique); Attraction Techniques; "Money Stuff" lectures; LoA Resources Library, Article Archive, Coaching Blog, a Mastermind Area forum, email archives, updates, and more.

Although I was already familiar with some information about the Law of Attraction from my previous metaphysical studies and from the movie The Secret, Bob's program really expanded and clarified the concepts for me helping me to be more mindful of my thoughts. I still go back and read the ebooks for a refresher and listen to the audios every once in awhile, just to get back to the basics. You got to do the basics. It all begins with the basics.

Bob does add new material from time to time. Really with so much information on the Wealth Beyond Reason site already, the "from time to time" is good enough for me since I do have plenty of other Law of Attraction material to read and write about.

Overall this is a great program. I made a connection with Bob Doyle through his Wealth Beyond Reason program and I do highly recommend this program to you. Check it out.

Please enjoy.

Answering the Question: What is Inspired Action?

There seems to be some confusion about the concept of creating or manifesting using principles of the Law of Attraction around the idea of taking action.

Some people, seem to believe that they are entitled to have: new cars, good homes, money given to them, basically something for nothing. Because of these beliefs of entitlement, when they hear teachers of the Law of Attraction tell them "think of it, feel it, visualize it and it will manifest in your lives," they think "Hey, I'm on easy street." Naturally, that will lead to disappointment and fosters the idea "this LoA stuff doesn't work."

Yes, instant manifestation can happen, and it often does.

In watching the movie The Secret we are taught that we need to take action. But what kind of action? Is this the kind of action that involves doing things unethically, maliciously, hurtfully? Hopefully not, that is contradictory of all the personal development we are studying and attracts "the like" into your life. Does this mean we go to work for a boss we don't like, engage in business or work we don't like just to make a buck or worse earn money for the sake of money. No, that takes away the joy and lowers our vibes. These actions set-up blocks and resistance to our manifestations and creations because of conflicts with our joy and happiness.

Then what kind of action do we engage in? Well, we follow our intuition, our "gut feeling", our hunches. We do what feels good and makes us happy. This is the "inspired action" talked about in The Secret. Inspired action is the type of action, that really moves one to do something.

Many people are not accustomed to listening to their inner voice or intuition or hunches. I've had numerous "gut feelings" and hunches, but doubting them or thinking logically about them and later, obviously in hindsight, see the course of action I THOUGHT about produced aless than desired outcome.

Can one sit at home and manifest what they want?

Good question. Sure you can. Here's the trick. Have full faith that whatever it is you want; without doubt, hesitation, or fear; WILL happen. For you couch potatoes, if you are sitting at home, never go out, think about how this will work. (I know, don't think about HOW the universe will provide, yadda, yadda, yadda.) Sitting in your La-Z-Boy, your desire is so strong, your visualisation is so clear, vibration so high, and with unshakable faith, that the universe is so enraptured with your desire that it has inspired others to: walk to your door or call your phone number or mail you what you want. It is great knowing that the hottest and sexiest person you could imagine knocks on your door and falls madly in love with you, just because you are sitting at home. Do you really believe that will happen?

Remember how magnets attract each other when they get close enough to each other. Well, this is where the inspired action comes in. To speed up the attraction process you need to be out and about where the universe has more opportunities to have your ideal partner "cross paths." The universe will send you feelings, thoughts, inklings, etc. to do something or be somewhere. Inspired action. Maybe you are inspired to go to the bookstore and get a coffee, go for a walk along the beach, go back to school, try a different restaurant or even attend a Law of Attraction workshop. :) All of these, and others, are possible places where you can meet your ideal partner.

Although the example above demonstrates a personal relationship, consider this can also be to meet a business partner, new client, some stranger who gives you a nugget of wisdom or even a new friend. You might find a new restaurant, a device or component for a project you are working on or come across an entry form for a contest to win a trip to your desired vacation spot and you have to enter to win.

In summary, get up, get out and be open to opportunities that present themselves to help you manifest your desires faster.

A List of Games to Play with Law of Attraction

I'm using the word 'game' for a couple of reasons 1) games are fun and can be exciting. Since the Law of Attraction is responding to your vibrations, and higher positive vibrations produce what we want faster, let's have fun by playing a game. :) 2) games are fun and can be exciting. 3) The Law of Attraction doesn't really know when you are really experiencing something or playing a game to raise your vibrations, so playing a game is a way to fool the Law of Attraction. LoA just sees and responds to your vibrations.

These game ideas have come from many sources. Many of which I don't recall the exact source where I orignally got it. I can say I got them from books that are in my "Suggested Reading" list, some ideas I got from friends and "Blogs I Enjoy Visiting" and others from my "Recommended eBooks and Programs" all these lists are in the right column. I'll be adding more to this list as a personal project.

Writing Games

Some people really like to write, such as bloggers. :) Some occasionally like to write, such as bloggers. :) Some do not even know what a writing instrument is. For those of you who like to write here are some games I've come across and use myself.

Appreciation/Gratitude Journal
I spend about 10 minutes a day writing about all the good things that happened during the day. I write about all the people, places and things that I'm grateful for in my life. I get really excited sometimes and that energy is "imprinted" into the words and paper that I'm writing on.

Write a play or story of how you would like to live your life. Or, how you would like a particular event to happen, such as a job interview, a sales presentation, asking for a raise.

It is said that a story is never written, it is rewritten several times. By writing and rewriting with more clarity and detail, you are creating your desires stronger and clearer with each rewrite.

Write a Business Plan
Other than making good business sense for starting a business, you are also clarifying your desire for the business you are manifesting. Whatever business you are creating, your business plan details what you are doing, who your customers are, describe your employees (if appropriate), what is your product, how is it made, who are your suppliers. Whatever business you are putting together, this can be a fun way to manifest your desire.

Write a list of Constrasts of your Desire
Sometimes we don't know what we WANT, but we do know what we DON'T want. By writing about what we don't want, we then can indentify the opposite, what we DO want. Some might say, "but that is giving attention to what we don't want and the Law of Attraction will respond to that." The Law of Attraction does respond to what we vibrate and the more we focus, dwell, give attention to, etc. then that becomes an issue. By giving breif attention to what we don't want, we then can identify what we do want and have something that we can really get excited about and focus our attention on what we do want.

Action Games

Go Be, Do, or Have
Go visit places, luxury homes, car dealers, clothing stores. Because I'm playing this game, I'm really FEELING more of what it is like to have the car, the clothes and live in the luxury home. I can feel my excitment and thrill as I experience these during the game. WOW is all I can say. Try this one game more then another game and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Lottery Scratch off tickets
When I buy the California scratch-off tickets (only when inspiration nudges me too) and I do get a winning ticket, I keep the ticket. Why? Simple, winning is a great feeling and when I win, I have that excitement. If I redeem the ticket, that's it, the feeling is over. By keeping the winning ticket in my pocket, wallet, on my mirror, etc. each time I view the winning ticket I can relive the excitment of winning again. I also say "I am a lottery winner." An affirmative statement that is absolutely true and exciting again each time I say it. My high vibrations are relived again and again.

Sing a Song
Eventhough I was named after the crooner Dean Martin, my singing voice is something that needs work. However, I enjoy the action of singing to my songs that make my heart sing. Even when I'm feeling a bit on the low vibration side, I will sing a line or two of a song that has positive lyrics such as: "Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day" or "It's getting better all the time..." Just little reminders of how I want to be and feel.

Play with kids
Kids are just so full of joy and happiness that when they are at play I get such a boost of energy and vibrations get lifted I just feel good and free.

Speaking Games

"Hey guess what..."
Work with a friend, partner, co-worker who you can talk with each time something good happens. However big or small, however exciting or thrilling, talk to each other about how good this is, how exciting this is, talk it up, be excited. Be as happy for your work-out partner when they share with you as you would be if this was happening for you. (Remember we are all one anyway, so this is happening for you.)

Give your acceptance speech
One of the best ways to attract anything is to live as though it already is happening or has happened. By giving your acceptance speech, you are living in the moment that your accomplishment is real.

Remember a major key to manifestation is to be happy and joyful so do these games as long as you are happy and having fun.

Thoughts from The Universe

I want to share something with you that I've been experiencing for a couple of months now.

The Universe sends me emails. Yes, I know it sounds wierd, but it's true. I signed up to have The Universe send me emails 5 days a week. Like magic I attract these wonderful, inspiring, insightful messages in my inbox that bring up my vibrations.

Mike Dooley, one of the featured presenters in the movie The Secret, has a website called TUT's Adventurers Club. Here you can sign-up for Throughts From The Universe to get your inspiring daily emails.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

And remember: "Thoughts become things...choose the good ones."

Song(s) That Make My Heart Sing

Long time no post...

Yes, life does get busy for all of us at one time or another. Being busy I see as a good thing, if it is being busy toward accomplishing one's desires.

Yet, despite how busy I've been the past weeks, I see no immediate results of my efforts and work. This is where I remind myself that I am in development and that everything is on it's way to me now. (I feel really good knowing that everything is on it's way. And that is most important.)

As I did some reading of other blogs' postings for the past couple of weeks, I came across the tag from Vickie at Contemplate This which was started by Hilda at Living Out Loud.

Back in the High Life Again
Steve Winwood

It used to seem to me
That my life ran on too fast
And I had to take it slowly
Just to make the good parts last
But when youre born to run
Its so hard to just slow down
So dont be surprised to see me
Back in that bright part of town

Ill be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
Ill be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched me once will smile and take me in

And Ill drink and dance with one hand free
Let the world back into me
And on Ill be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

You used to be the best
To make life be life to me
And I hope that youre still out there
And youre like you used to be
Well have ourselves a time
And well dance til the morning sun
And well let the good times come in
And we wont stop til were done

Well be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
Well be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once will smile and take us in
And well drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh well be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

Well be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
Well be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once will smile and take us in
And well drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh well be a sight to see
Back in the high life again
