Don’t Miss The Coming Attractions

Yesterday I read a quote by Albert Einstein which said

“Imagination is everything.
It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

Although I’ve seen that many times before, this time the word “attraction” really jumped out at me and I became keenly aware of just how profound that quote is.

I originally read it when I first watched “The Secret” many years ago.  At that time, (and every time since) I equated the term “coming attractions” to the thing we watch in a theater, before the movie starts.  But yesterday, it struck me in a different way.  Instead of thinking of coming attractions as a term, I thought of the words separately~coming (future, hasn’t happened yet) and attractions (things we attract).  And then I said “WOW, Albert Einstein really was smart!” Continue reading

Enjoy The Ride

I just listened to a really funny story about Esther and Jerry Hicks taking a white water rafting trip on the Colorado River. Prior to putting their raft in the water, their guide was explaining all the safety precautions and equipment to them, as well as having them sign disclaimers in the event of an accident or injury.  Esther related how she was becoming increasingly anxious and worried as the guide stressed to them “this is not Disneyland, folks and we cannot turn this river off.” Continue reading

God…According To Me

Did you ever take time to imagine what it must be like to be God?  I’ve given this a lot of thought and I think I’m onto something.  Tell me what YOU think…

OK, so imagine you are God.  Your job (not that you need a job) is to give everyone what they ask for. You fulfill all requests based on what people tell you they want. Problem (for us) is you don’t hear words, you only “hear” thoughts and feelings. So whatever people are telling you with their thoughts & feelings is what you give them. No judgment or interpretation; you don’t have time for that~ you’re busy! Continue reading

Think Inside The Box

One of the most important aspects of goal achieving is creating a vision~ a clear mental picture of what you want.  Now if your goal is a tangible item, like a car or a necklace, this is pretty simple.  You just look at the thing, your brain takes a snapshot of it and you’re good to go.  Not so easy when your goal is more extensive.  How do you take a mental snapshot of  love or success or happiness or peace?

Why Do We Torture Ourselves?

I’m happy to report I’ve just come out the other end of a website debacle that nearly got the best of me last week.  I’ll spare you the details, but suffice it to say I got myself into a bit of a pickle with this blogsite.  For a non-techie like me, the changes I needed to make seemed HUGE.  As I look back, the actual time involved with literally “making the change” was less than 20 minutes.  Less than 20 minutes of actual downloading, importing and exporting and it was done.  So why was this a debacle that nearly get the best of me?  Because I tortured myself mentally before I even got started. Continue reading

What A Day For A Daydream!

My favorite teachers on the Law of Attraction are Esther Hicks/Abraham.  I like them because their teachings are simple, consistent and humorous.  Whether I’m reading their books, watching their videos or listening to their CD’s, I always come away with the same basic understanding~ the essential key to attracting what we want is to generate the feeling of having itContinue reading

Meditation Doesn’t Work! Up Until Now…

In the last post we discussed how our Immune System is affected by our mental attitude and touched on the fact that research shows the practice of meditation improves our immune response.  He (the Ph.D. who gave the seminar AND did the research) said that people with weakened Immune Systems showed a vast improvement when they meditated on a regular basis.

This is very good news…if you meditate.  My experience tells me that most people don’t, which I find completely understandable, because MEDITATION IS BORING!  At least that’s what I used to think. Continue reading

Think Yourself Healthy

Last week I attended a seminar titled “The Immune System: The Mind-Body Connection: Who Gets Sick And Who Stays Well” These programs are a requirement to maintain my Nursing license, and usually pretty dull and boring.  Well, not only wasn’t I bored, but I came away feeling as inspired as if I had heard a great motivational speaker.
