Reblog: All Ailments Resolve Themselves

Today’s message from Abraham Hicks looks at health and healing.

 

“All Ailments Resolve Themselves. 

All things do resolve themselves, if allowed. All things do. 

ALL things do resolve themselves — if allowed.

You say, “Some things resolve themselves,” and you believe that. 

And when we say all things resolve themselves, you don’t really believe that. 

You want to, but you don’t have personal proof about it.

There’s the belief that says, 

“Well, I really don’t believe all things resolve themselves,” 

and as you activate that vibration, all kinds of people start showing up with un-resolved things. 

But that’s not the evidence you’re wanting to attract. 

You’re wanting evidence that says, “All things can resolve themselves.”

Bridge your locked off statement by saying, 

“Well, I don’t know how I’ve been disallowing it. 

I’ve been doing it without knowing I’m doing it. 

But now I am aware that negative emotion means I’m doing it, 

and I’m going to start watching for those moments when I’m not allowing it.”

If we were standing in your physical shoes, 

we’d lie in bed every night and talk to the cells of our body, 

and expect the recovery, and we would feel the sensation of it. 

We would put ourselves in as much comfort as we could, as often as we could — for about a week — 

aligning Energy, relaxing into the discomfort, talking to the cells, 

knowing that they are summoning and that Source Energy is answering, 

knowing that we are receiving and allowing; and acknowledging, 

“In this moment, I’m not doing anything that’s causing any discomfort in my body. 

I feel perfectly comfortable. 

I feel such appreciation in this perfectly comfortable moment. 

In this mode of distraction, or in this mode of focused comfort, 

I’m in this place of appreciation — I’m in this place of allowing.” 

(Our attitude would be, “Let me see my physical progress.”)

Just allow yourself to receive what the Universe is offering. 

Before you know it, your body will be back in alignment.

Every bit of allowing is going to bring you greater and greater results. 

Give the cells of your body an opportunity to make their request; 

give yourself the opportunity to receive what the Universal Forces are offering — 

and before you know it, your body will be back into alignment.

So many people are convinced that their physical bodies are in a state 

— once you reach a certain stage of life — of steady decline. 

It is amazing the amount of expectation that is wrapped around that. 

And it is absolutely opposite of what you’ve intended,

of what your cells know how to do — 

and of what Source Energy is supplying.

You do not need to decline. 

It is only your negative expectation — or your worrying about this and that, and the other — 

that pinches off the Energy. 

You don’t decline because your body wears out. 

You decline because you disallow more of the resources that keep you feeling good. 

That’s all. Every single time. There are no exceptions to that.

Repost: 17 Differences Between Rich and Poor

923544_522633857793764_2029061548_nMy interest in the Law of Attraction means I inevitably receive a lot of email, most of it designed to sell something to me — a seminar, a video, a book.  I am sure you are not alone.  Email lists are wonderful — except for the way so many of them inevitably are designed to sell you something.  It is one reason, actually, why I defy conventional wisdom and do NOT set up mailing lists of fans or potential fans for my books.  I hate junk email and I’m sure you do too!

 

This morning I received an email that was clearly designed to sell me a book or something focusing on what rich people do that poor people do not do.  I have no interest in buying whatever they are selling.  But sprinkled among the standard “buy this” fare, the email did contain some useful information, information I am republishing here.

Stripping away the stuff we don’t want, here is the useful things from that email with just ONE “buy my book” link retained as a form of citation:

——————————————

The process of manifestation states that thoughts lead to feelings, feelings lead to actions, and actions lead to results. Everything in your life begins with your thoughts and your thoughts are generated from your mind.
Therefore it is vital to know how to program your mind so the thoughts you think are supportive thoughts which help you to achieve your financial goals.
The universal truth is that we become what we think about. Buddha also said “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become”. It’s an obvious fact that if you want to be someone you have to think like that person.
Thinking British is the surest way to become British.

Thinking British is the surest way to become British.

For example if you want to be an engineer, you have to think like an engineer. If you want to be rich, you have to think like the rich. Fortunately the way of thinking can be learnt and practised.
The following are the 17 wealth files which can be found in “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” book.
Wealth File #1:
Rich people believe “I create my life.”
Poor people believe “Life happens to me.”
Wealth File #2:
Rich people play the money game to win.
Poor people play the money game to not lose.
Wealth File #3:
Rich people are committed to being rich.
Poor people want to be rich.

Photo: It’s all in the attitude

923544_522633857793764_2029061548_nI found this fantastic photo on facebook that says it all!

 

Attitude is everything!  How you choose to interpret events, how you choose to feel about each event in your life decides your future.  You can see either setbacks in your life — or opportunities.  You decide for yourself whether to hold the vision of what you want and trust in the process — or let yourself be discouraged when things develop differently than your expectation.

 

Remember that the law of attraction finds the EASIEST AND MOST JOYFUL way of doing things.  It knows things your conscious mind does not.  It is like water.  It is the Great River we all live in, carrying us through our lives.

 

Trust, believe, and know everything is as it should be.  Do not let fear hinder you.  Relax and trust in what the universe is doing and how.

Reblog: You’ve Done the Work

More good stuff from Abraham Hicks.  Today’s post is “You’ve Done the Work.”

 

You’ve Done The Work

“The thing that we want you to understand is, through all this sorting and sifting, you have done all the asking. 

You have made all the decisions, one at a time, and they’re all in your vortex and they’re all queued up.

You’ve done the work!

Now your work is to play on the beach. 

Your work is to release resistance. 

Your work is to appreciate and bask and find clarity and look for delicious ease and flow.

In other words, your work is to look for feelings that feel good. 

Your work is non-work.

Your work is to relax and release. Relax and Release, relax and release.

And it is our promise to you that you will find all of those answers. 

They are all queued up. You just gotta get in the vortex!

You’ve gotta stop clinging to what’s out of the vortex. 

You gotta loosen your grip on what’s outside the vortex.

You gotta play more. 

You gotta laugh. 

You gotta release more. 

You gotta have more fun. 

You gotta think less and you gotta meditate more. 

You gotta bask more.

Don’t make it a thinking game, let it be a feeling game.

Then watch what happens. 

So much there for you!!! “

Abraham Hicks

 

Character profile: Lord Knight Elendir (Peers of Beinan)

 

Ghosts of the Past cover name whiteCharacter name:  Lord Knight Elendir of house Ten-Ar

Parents:  Lord Healer Devon of house Ten-Ar, Lady Healer Keelia of house Ten-Ar

Date of Birth: BE 6767, beinor 50

Place of Birth:  An-Men Ten-Ar Healing Center in the capital city of Hejing

Books appearing in:  The Great Succession Crisis (prologue only), The Ghosts of the Past (central character), Princess Anyu Returns (central character)

Profile:  a flawed hero, we first meet Elendir just shir-ors after his birth.  After losing first his father, then his mother to terrorist attacks, Elendir grows up in the Ten-Arian monastery, ever watchful of his younger sister, Althea who is brought up along a similar path among the healers of house Ten-Ar.

As a young man, Elendir finds himself vulnerable to his hormones, easily manipulated by shrewd and intelligent women bent on distracting Elendir from his quest to solve the mystery of his father’s death in hopes of finding peace.  This vulnerability threatens to destroy planet Beinan in ways Elendir himself fails to recognize until it is almost too late.

Across The Ghosts of the Past Elendir grows personally, eventually finding peace, marrying, and becoming a father himself to his son Corann.

Like most Beinarians, Elendir is grey-eyed but develops brown eye syndrome (named for its discoloring effects on the iris), an eye disease caused by exposure to argun ore and to argene that destroys two of the five photo receptors in Beinarian eyes, rendering him partially visually disabled and brown-eyed.

ninth-and-tenth-doctorIdeal actor to play Elendir in a film adaptation:  Dr Who alumni David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston would both make fantastic choices as Elendir.  Eccleston in particular has the stage presence and subtly to convey Elendir over the long span of his life covered in Ghosts of the Past.

Home-Spun Coasters: The Perfect Homemade Gift

Originally posted January 25, 2012

 

I’m a medievalist. I love history. I love learning how to make things the way they were made before everything was pre-made for you and sold in stores. Before the industrial revolution, most people spun their own thread and yarn which they then knitted, crocheted, or, if the yarn is fine and smooth enough, strung into a hand loom and wove into cloth. Up until the 19th century, these methods were the dominate ways most people produced the textiles used in everyday life. Spinning wheels emerged in the Renaissance, but they were expensive and not portable. So the drop spindle, our method for yarn and thread production since humans started creating textiles, remained the tool of choice.

Spinning with a drop spindle takes some practice. I’m just a beginner, so I won’t explain how to spin. Instead, I discovered the perfect gift that blends these timeless techniques and applies them into a useful gift anyone can appreciate-all the more so because so much of the process is done by hand.

 

Materials You Will Need:

Approx 4-6 oz of wool roving spun into 1 skein of hand-spun yarn (any quality; avoid merino wool as this is a coarser project)

Food coloring & Vinegar (optional)

Medium size crochet needle

drop spindle

Step 1: spin the skein of thread.

Step 2: wind off the skein and secure with thread or yarn in figure 8 pattern

Step 3: In a medium sauce pan, boil 1-2 quarts of water. If a dyed yarn is desired, add food coloring. Use from 18-25 total drops of food coloring for a vibrant color. Think Easter egg dying and you have about the right amount. Add 2 to 3 tbsp of vinegar to the boiling water to set the dye.

Step 4: remove from heat. Add skein. With a fork or chopstick, beat skein vigorously in the pot for about 2 minutes. Drain. Refill pan with ice and tap water and beat vigorously. If you have added color to the yarn, rinse until dye no longer runs off.

Step 5: beat skein against wall; dry overnight on doorknob.

Step 6: Crochet using single and double crochet into a round coaster 4-5 inches in diameter.
