Connecting to Our Center

You may have heard "Prayer is asking God for something; Meditation is listening to God." Whether you believe you are listening to God or tuning into your own inner voice is not the point.
Getting quiet enough to hear is.

There are many ways to meditate that do not involve sitting on a cushion cross legged. It's about "being", rather than "doing"....connecting to our center.

  • Listening to music
  • Walking along the beach
  • Taking a warm bubble bath
  • Reading a great book
  • Listening to wind chimes
  • Watching candles glow
  • Listening to the silence
  • Spending time at a bookstore
  • Watching the sunrise
  • Watching the sunset
  • Having a massage
  • Watching our cat sleep
  • Knitting or hand sewing
  • Free-style writing
If you have been an on-the-go/can't stand things quiet type/must multi task kind of person, this may be difficult at first, but each time becomes just a bit easier. As you become more grounded...or will find that all the things you thought you HAD to do were either illusion, or you will do them easily.

Cats Don't Fly

It's easy to take cats (and dogs) pretty much at face value. We do not expect them to fly no matter how much they love us or want to please us. It just is not going to happen.

I think it would be a more peaceable...and happier... world if we could find acceptance of humans as just as they are. I don't think we have to necessarily LIKE of of their traits....only to ACCEPT them.

Entering into a relationship with someone we want to change is dishonest and controlling....and, usually futile. Also, we miss the opportunity of learning and growing from different viewpoints another has to offer. By wanting to give another person a makeover, we are basically saying we don’t accept them for who they are. An honest relationship is one in which we accept each other as whole individuals, sharing our life experiences, as well as our different viewpoints, with each other.

Though we do have the power to give ourselves a makeover, it's important that we be reasonable and kind. We, like cats, won't be sprouting wings and flying.

Law of Attraction

You will notice that those who speak most of prosperity, have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it.

Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is Law. It can be no other way... The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet getting more and more of the way you feel.

When you feel lonely, you attract more loneliness. When you feel poor, you attract more poverty. When you feel sick, you attract more sickness. When you feel unhappy, you attract more unhappiness. When you feel healthy and vital and alive and prosperous—you attract more of all of those things. **Abraham-Hicks**

There's really nothing mysterious about this. Reality is fluid, depending on where you place your focus. This is not to say that it's necessarily easy. Still, it's so worth it to discipline ourselves to always find and concentrate on the bright side of everything. Anything you can imagine, you can have!

About Money

When we have problems we tend to obsess about them....perhaps because we think we can solve them by thinking about them. But, have you noticed how things have a way of easing when we "let go"? Whether you view this as "Letting go and letting God" or "The law of attraction" the result is the same: Resolution to the problem.

You do not have to have money to attract money, but you cannot feel poor and attract money. The key is, you have to find ways of improving the way you feel from right where you stand before things can begin to change.

By softening your attention to the things that are going wrong, and by beginning to tell stories that lean more in the direction of what you want instead of in the direction of what you have got, your vibration will shift; your point of attraction will shift—and you will get different results.
