Go On A Mental Diet

May 28, 2013

no negative thoughtsSpring is in the air and summer fast approaching here in the north east of North America. People are dieting in the hopes of looking better in less clothing after a long and cold winter. All this is a great idea, however have you ever thought of going on a mental diet as well? This is more challenging that a physical diet. Try thinking of only positive thoughts for 30 days. Just try it and see what happens. Be conscious of your thoughts to turn things around in your life. You can gauge your thoughts on how you are feeling at the time. If you feel good and empowered you are on the right wave length. If your feeling down or depressed, angry, frustrated, upset or any of the mired of physical sensations that do not support you, then your thoughts will be reflecting these feelings.
Begin today, to change your thoughts. You will be happier, healthier and skinnier. It works for everyone, every where, at any time.
Shed those pounds of excess burden and begin to life an enlightened life.
May the Joy be with you.

Memory is Power

May 22, 2013

memoryMemory is the treasury and guardian of all things” Marcus T. Cicero

Memory is an intellectual tool. We can tap in on this power by developing its use. It is a mental muscle and the more you use it the stronger it gets. So many people say, I have a poor memory. When the truth is that as your memory is developed, you will find it gets easier and easier to remember more and more. Everyone has the ability to utilize this faculty of mind through use and exercise. It is vital to begin cultivating the power of a strong memory to live in today’s world.
So relax, learn, study, practice and become a master at remembering anything and everything. And before long you will be saying I have a perfect memory.

Will Power

May 15, 2013

will powerThere is a little book written in 1929 by Genevieve Behrend titled Your Invisible Power. It is one of my favorite books and I refer to it often.
Right in the first chapter she writes
“ When your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire and hold it with your WILL, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the law of attraction.”
Now understanding comes from studying. Your hearts desire, is locked in your subconscious mind, you feel it in your heart however. Your will, is the ability to focus, or concentrate and stay with something with laser sharp precision. Your vision is using your imagination to create the picture of what it is you desire. So your will is the glue that binds your vision and desire together. Use your will power and see what you can manifest. Any thing is possible. All you have to do is will it in your life.
Visualize amazing things for your self, snap the picture and look at it often with intense emotions. You will gradually see the physical equivalent of that picture being created. This is creation.

Celebrating Life

May 8, 2013

celebration of lifeCelebrate life every day. Recently our Nia dance community lost a very special and wonderful woman, tragically and suddenly. The shock waves sent ripples of grief and disbelief amongst all the people who loved her and were touched by her grace. Although her loss was so sad, we celebrated her life last week through dance. We held a memorial celebration and felt her presence in the movement of life. She would have wanted it this way. Her smile, was contagious, her enthusiasm echoed in our bones as we danced with her. She will be missed. As we all will one day leave our bodies and transform back to spirit, we can still feel, the presences of that being in our hearts and kindle the memories of joy that they brought to this world. Celebrate their life, Remember the joy rather than the sadness and dance the pain away. Dance, dance and dance some more….

May her heart be at rest and her spirit dancing to the the music of the cosmos.


Can We Talk?

May 2, 2013

communicationCommunication is vital to building relationships. The better we are able to listen to another person and understand them, the better we are able to allow a dialog to develop. If we learn to collaborate with one another in an open and honest way any thing is possible. In today’s world we are able to communicate with anyone, anywhere any time, yet it seems like we have lost the art to communicate intimately with one another. I watch people in a restaurant and they are not talking to each other, they are each on their cell phones, in their own world. On the train everyone is hooked up to their own device again in their own world. Everyone seems to trapped in their own bubble attached to their phones, texting, talking, emailing, however this is just sound bits of information, not real open communing. Communication is just that, to commune, to come together for a common cause or ground.
Let’s begin to get to know one another by reaching out and communicating. Real dialog, listening with an open heart and mind and discovering how truly wonderful communing can be. Hey, you never know what might come if it.
