What is Humility?

Humility (adjectival formhumble) is the quality of being modest and respectful. Humility, in various interpretations, is widely seen as a virtue in many religious and philosophical traditions, being connected with notions of transcendent unity with the universe or the divine, and of egolessness

Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make amends for them- John (Jay) McCloy

The Law Of Humility: Whatever one resists, persists in their life. Resistance feeds too much energy into unwanted things. Instead of being active, often it is important to be inactive. Clarity comes when light is allow to come in and shine. Slowing down and ignoring what one does not desire in their life is so much more effective in clearing away the unwanted. Since one is not resisting, life carries on with ease. One can learn a great deal about who someone is inside simply by observing things people strongly object. The path to living truth takes unmoving great character, temperance and also humility. To grow to the greatest heights, one must be willing to let go, be thankful and celebrate life. When force is erased from the spirit then morality and inner power can be seen from near or far by all. Greatness is having the will to be able to stop forward movement when necessary. It is in the ability to pause where insight can come through to gently guide us to balance.

He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good- Confucius

Humility (noun) the quality or condition of being humble;  modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance, rank, etc.

A perfect example of humility can be see here in the great Chinese oracle system called The I Ching. Even though there is an overflowing amount of inner force. The way to unlock the boundless power within is to reflect on the earthly experience daily and meditate on living truth. Without rightness there is no greatness. Once one taps into the gentle way of movement even in the midst of great power, peace and harmony flow undisturbed but ever building silently, simply. 

Modesty is the citadel of beauty- Demades

The I Ching 34th hexagram this: THE POWER OF THE GREAT. (Perseverance furthers)

The hexagram points to a time when inner worth mounts with great force and comes to power. But its strength has already passed beyond the median line, hence there is danger that one may rely entirely on one’s own power and forget to ask what is right. There is danger too that, being intent on movement, we may not wait for the right time. Therefore the added statement that perseverance furthers. For that is truly great power which does not degenerate into mere force but remains inwardly united with the fundamental principles of right and of justice. When we understand this point—namely, that greatness and justice must be indissolubly united—we understand the true meaning of all that happens in heaven and on earth.

 

Modesty is a shining light; it prepares the mind to receive knowledge, and the heart for truth- Madam Guizot

Get Inspired, Be Creative Successfully! No matter what!

Unlocking the Mysteries of Creativity

Creativity is a challenge to maintain for some people. What inspires you? Tapping into your inner power can be a slow process sometimes. No matter what it takes for you to get into the creative zone, you can go there faster when you learn to instantly turn it on! No doubt, energy is needed for creativity to exist. However,  it also takes regular practice to maintain the natural rhythm of joyously moving through an idea then onto a project then to repeat the process again and again. If all that’s not enough, It takes even more energy to see projects to the finish line too. No worries you can definitely do this.

Do You Have What It Takes?

Let’s break down a few ways to catch this stuff (creativity) that can’t be bottled or even sold in a store- Well, I’ll share a few tips that i’ve learned from being pretty crafty in my life but also how others keep the good vibes flowing daily. Before i get to that, its important for you to have some guts. The way i have managed to have the guts to start a project is to know that i am special in some way. You should also know that you are special. There is something about you that no one else has. Trust me! You should also remember that people want to see and hear from you. I know this might sound like i’m handing you a handfull of mess. Trust me i’m not here to do that. I’m speaking from my heart on this.

Ignore the Fear, Its Not Even Real

I went from having a jewelry-making, crocheting, catering etc, etc business to writing fulltime. Why? because i love to express myself through writing more than any other way. That’s how i discovered my passion. I had to experience life and try a few things. With time we all can discover our passions. Think about what you enjoy. Your dreams are bigger than your doubt. Studies show the number one thing that most people run into is FEAR. The funny thing is that, fear isn’t even real. At least not like we think it is anyway. According to The Chinese 5 Organ System, fear is an energy problem kinda thing. When we eat, drink and think harmoniously in a way that is good for us. When we are balanced emotionally and physically we can do so much more. I say that because everyone can’t eat the same things and be a success. I live by this: You are what you think, drink, eat and imagine.

Ready, Set Go!

The key to moving into a state of action instead of repeated procrastination is to discover what YOU enjoy. I know it sounds too good to be true! I know you may have heard this line before but Its a fairly simple thing to do. The easiest part about searching for your passion can be found in only one place… That place is within you. How can  you find what you don’t know yet? You have to brainstorm, write a list, type a list. You also have to take a risk. Even if you write down exactly what you want to do then schedule a time to do it, you’re taking a risk. Don’t allow the word risk to run you away. Risks are so good for you. Get moving. Sure you may make some mistakes along the way. All of us make mistakes. The only way to make them is to try. Since you need experience to know whether something is for you or not…There is no other way to know unless you know. Again get moving:-). I’ll throw in a disclaimer here: Risks that i’m speaking of are safe for your mind, body and spirit. Any questions about this please leave a comment. Now let’s get back to business here!

If You Want It You Can Have It!

If you want the CREATIVE thing to blossom in your life you gotta get down and dirty with your ideas. Action is what it takes to make anything happen. Projects all start out as well- thought- out ideas. So yea, waiting does have it’s place but Stagnation will only have us waiting for success. All creative efforts started somewhere. Nothing just shows up out of nowhere and fully functional without some creative spirit and drive for something more.  That’s a half truth, i say that because of this: We all have talents to do a great things in our lives. However some choose to do great things on a smaller scale than others. There is choice involved here. The difference between someone with creative energy and one without it is the choice to use it and or cultivate it. There are so many reasons  to cultivate your very own creative skill set. Let’s not talk about all the amazing fun you can have with coming up with ideas! So i’m with you on this. I get why you want to have the power to create at will.

Did someone say “I wish”?

Why wish for what you already have? Contrary to popular opinion, there is a seed of thousands of talents in each one of us that can be nurtured to the point where when we can have the creative flow or any other skill we need, when we want it. That’s right my friend. It is the desire to DO that makes everything grow within us. The more passionate you are about bringing forth a skill or a talent to do something, the more the seed within you grows from your constant energetic watering of it.

The Way I Cultivate My Creative Talent

There is one word to describe it, but i will tell you a story first. OK, so i wanted to learn the art of crocheting which (uses 1 needle) , no its not knitting;  Which uses (2 needles). I used to day dream about taking yarn with me to coffeeshops and chatting with my friends as i created lovely pieces of fabric by hand. No one could tell me that crocheting wasn’t the hottest thing around. To me it was and that’s all that mattered. If someone had something to say about my goal to be a crocheter…I was so focused on my dreams to crochet that i wouldn’t of noticed anything other than what i wanted to hear at that time. So all i did was visualize making stuff. It didn’t matter what i was creating in my mind but i was always moving my hands ‘mentally speaking’.

One day i had an idea to sit in meditation with my crochet needles and yarn with a crochet video with my eyes closed. I figured i should work out how to crochet mentally first then, my body will automatically do what i want. That night, i stayed up pretty late but something said, Sereda turn on the video to try again. So i did. In about 30 minutes i knew 5 stitches that enable me to crochet proficiently. But also to follow a pretty good pattern. I was blown away at the results of simply meditating and pretending i was actually crocheting.

The proof is there. I know visualization works, because its the only way i learned how to crochet. Sure i had a video that showed how to crochet but i don’t learn how to do creative things by watching videos. I learn from doing things hands on. My body wasn’t moving the way i wanted it to. I am convinced that without taking my time to first get into a whole new mindset about learning to crochet, i would not have learned. Yes, i took a class at a craft store before but the teacher was not teaching in way that i enjoyed. So i set out for an alternative method.

After i learned to crochet i made handbags, accessories,  clothes, jewelry by hundreds. The most wonderful thing about the entire experience is that i loved what i did and i made money off of it too. Truthfully i only made money Well after i learned how to make hats without holes in them. After i learned the art of getting my stitches right. Haa..i had a blast. Now that you know my story let me get back to the point i was making.

Go forth!

Visualize! Sounds easy i know, that’s because it is freakin easy! Whatever you want to do: Write it down, list some ways that you can learn how to do what you want to do. Then cultivate your skill in healthy ways that support your goal.

Need some creative energy cultivation ideas? 

Do yoga, deep breathing, run, walk, watch a movie, laugh with friends, start a group, write about it, sing, dance, read about it, watch videos, blog about your learning process and again, Visualize it.

Creative Defined.

The word creative means:

Relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, esp. in the production of an artistic work: “creative writing“. (Dictionary.com)

Here’s a cute video to inspire your efforts. Happy creative cultivating!

Law Of Attraction Testimonials

Comment: Don’t sleep on vision boards…they work! 

Response: SO TRUE!!! I made a vision board last year and half of the things I put my mind to or on the board happened for me!!! In a matter of months! Whatever you put into the universe will definitely come back to you! :-) Making a new one for 2012!

_______________________________________________________________________________

This is something that I used to do..when I first found out about law of attraction. On one side of the paper I would say I wanted something… An example of something that I said that worked. I said Universe I want a part time job that doesn’t have me working on the weekends that is in my field( early childhood education), and is near all the bus lines or something better now. On the other sideof it I wrote I work part time with no weekends in my field and all the bus lines go past my job or something better now. So I wrote it in present tense like yes I have it but allowing the universe to give me extra by putting “or something better now” I ended up getting a job that was downtown working with abused children…worked part time no weekends..not even on Fridays and all the bus lines went into that area ♥

_______________________________________________________________________________

Kind of a testimonial.. one day I was walking home from school (in college) and I said money is really needed money is rightfully mine, money come at the present time, money must come for my problems and troubles to cease money must come for my mind to be at peace. No faster than I finished saying that..this guy comes out of nowhere and damn near runs me over with his bike.. and as I look down..20 dollars appeared!

_______________________________________________________________________________

wow…it’s a long story but here goes…I have had “stinkin thinkin” in regards to my relationship, my children, my career, money, my appearance etc….I got depressed and discouraged….THEN…I really made a point to intentionally think on good things, what I wanted and NOT what I thought I had…this group has been a BLESSING!!!! So I “focused” and began to read the various posts and affirmations, I would write down what I want on index cards a carry them even to bed and the shower. I also said how grateful I am for having these things…I started to youtube some of Abraham Hicks videos etc etc. because I hit a major inspirational roadblock in my relationship. My significant other and I had been very disconnected and I felt like because this is an area that has always derailed me in the past I would “focus” on it. Nothing changed…it got worse. Then I asked for the air to just be cleared and I was even willing to move out. Yesterday I guess a friend of mine sensed something was wrong and asked if she should come over for a “pow-wow”…she did…we came to the conclusion that I need to be loving ME how I desire to be loved. I need to focus on what I want and even make a short/longterm goal list. As we were talking, my BF interjected (which is NOT like him) and for the next four hours she mediated a “relationsip cleansing session”…now what does that have to do with my career? Well his biggest issue with me was a financial one…he wants to see me doing well and being prosperous and making ME happy because he feels that I have lost my FOCUS etc. etc….(among other things) So I made my list and exactly what i want and I have gotten calls all day for business (I am a licensed Nail Technician with a mobile nailcare service)…I feel like my emotional cleansing…re-focusing…support

of you all (whether you knew it or not)… the law of attraction – my purposeful thinking and visualization and everything else has unblocked my ability to manifest the goodness I was desiring…and the funny thing is that this is all very new to me and I don’t know if I understand it completely…but it’s changing my life… – blessings and thank you for listening! ♥

ok the work from last night is working..i saw some signs of that today..wanna hear more? ok here it is: was on the train today, before i got on the train i asked a sista a question then something said ask the brotha next. so i asked him what direction he was going and how long had he been waitin; since it was so chilly outside this morning. i also asked him, when the train would show up. we ended up chit chatting and he needed some health advice, motivation etc. he knew someone who i needed to get with for something i’ve been looking for when i go out of town..he said the guy is his best friend..i was like WOW really?! yes, he said. sooo then he said the guys phone was off and he would call him and pass my information on whenever his phone came back on. i said ok..then to top that, he carries my bag on the train to the block not far from my home and when he got home he called me and said he already got in touch with his best friend faster for me because he wanted to help me and his best friend would call me monday. he thanked me for being so kind.and i told him if i get to work with his best friend i will do some healing work for him free… thats ♥ the law of attraction is live and kicking!

_______________________________________________________________________________

So today I’m on the bus wet angry and smushed (the early bus never came the I was on was way beyond capacity..) I’m thinking of all the reasons Im mad and feeling self righteous in my anger..then I thought why not think of things that are positive and what you want.. So I get to work and the line to get in.the building is almost out the door…so now I’m late..LOL…I’m not a patient person..so now I’m..surprisingly calm…I figure this must be an exercise in teaching me peace and patience. When I thought about what I could focus on to be positive I thought of this group..thank you, you.guys are rubbing off on me.

_______________________________________________________________________________

I was meaning to share this sooner. Many more great things have happened since, but here’s an except that’s ready to go.

I was getting ready to head out and start my day. After careful deliberation of what to eat, and going with the better choice of fruit, nuts, water and green tea as opposed to a pattie from the caribbean store I walked to the light rail. I left my home feeling and looking my best, asking God to fill me where I feel empty and show me the way.

There was a lady who had a pleasant spirit and we struck up a conversation about her stray cats that she feeds. When I asked her if she was as kind to people as she was to her cats, she said yes and I believed her. She was such a giver, she even gave her drugs away when she was an addict…15yrs in recovery now.

She said I looked like I did really good, kind unique things and asked what I did and I didn’t really know what to say because my life is in a transitional space. I now where I’m going, but the intermediate path has been very blurry.

On the train, out of no where..she told me she saw me making genius sculptures, and I had on the beautiful funky african clothes with long locks doing good things in the world.

This is exactly how I see myself in the future, and a year ago a friend gave me a intuitive reading saying the same thing.

So this must be Gods way of telling me I’m on track.

_______________________________________________________________________________

The LOA works. I made a decision, before I started focusing on some particular thing that I wanted to manifest in my life, that I was gonna just become acclimated to the idea of universal abundance. I began by repeating certain affirmations (some from a LOA group) that helped to attune me to a higher frequency. I practiced (and still practice) being aware of my thoughts and emotions because I feel that needed to be mastered to some degree so I will be prepared for my desires manifesting. It has been a few months of concerted effort, but it’s beginning to pay off. My son’s father, who owes about $20,000 in child support arrears, began paying again. I’m in the process of writing my next book. Yes, I said next. I’m a published author, but that book was written by a woman who lacked the confidence to even promote her own book. To make a really long story really short, I am thankful that my journey brought me to this place. From here, the Universe is the limit… which is limitless… so… yeah… :)

MORE TESTIMONIALS TO COME! IT’S AMAZING ISN’T IT?!!

The Powerful Law of 2: Intention & LOA!

The Law of intention blended with the law of attraction is one ingredient you may not of tried before. The use of both laws together makes a huge difference in getting what you want, possibly half the time in most cases.

Did you know Law of Attraction is already working in your life? Don’t believe that? You do believe in gravity and the wind, yes? You can’t see them but you do experience their effects.

The Law of Attraction is just the same.

You don’t really ‘see’ gravity or the wind, but you, like me, know those two things exist. The Law of Attraction is working 24×7, every day of the year, constantly attracting to you good things in your life or not so good things. The Law of Attraction affects everything, whether you believe it or not.

My question to ‘you’ is: “Are you really working the law of attraction with full intention?” If not yet, you will very soon. What are your top 3 desires? Keep this question and the answers in mind, better yet jot them down.

The key to intention is to be informed first on how to do something then you can intend on choosing to do differently than you have before. Here are some characteristics of people who are in alignment with the power of intention:

These people never rely on luck. They decide to do something, then they make it happen.

They never think about what cannot happen. Instead, they focus on what will happen.

They focus their thoughts on only what they want.

Sound familiar? If not soon this will be a second language to you!

You don’t have to believe in the gravity to see it work. The law of gravity is always working. Drop a pen on the ground and you will have an instant reference point that gravity is real. The belief you had about it at first, will be good for a few seconds then you will watch the pen fall on the ground at the same speed no matter how many times you drop it on the ground. A law is made one because it always works in a calculated way. The law is something you can put your money on. You can place a bet on it. It is always working. The law of attraction is a sure thing just as the law of gravity is.

Become aware of, and choose carefully, the things you give your attention to. Where you place your attention is where your life will grow.

You may not want to hear this, but everything you have (or don’t have) has been attracted or repelled into or from your life by YOU.

The Law of intention blended with the law of attraction is one ingredient you may not of tried before. The use of both laws together makes a big difference in how well the your wants manifest. The difference is simple. You are naturally using the law of attraction. The question is not: “How can I get the law of attraction to work” but “How can I get the law of attraction to fulfill my desires?” Intention that is it! Make it deliberate. It will happen!

What were your top 3 desires again? They might be closer than you think… Is is important to realize that you are already manifesting, and doing a very good job of it. Once you have come to terms with that realization, then the next step is to adjust your thinking.

As your thinking begins to transform, so will the possibilities of you achieving your goals. The law of attraction with intention begins with the right “mindset”. Letting go of those conflicting thoughts and cultivating new positive ones, about you and your place in the universe is where it all starts.

A simple way to begin this process is to become aware of your what you are holding in your mind, in other words what are your thoughts? Begin to pay attention to what you are thinking about the internal things you are saying. When those words and thoughts become negative, shift your thoughts to focus on positive vibrations instead.

If that is difficult to do, find something to distract you, it could be something as simple as starting a puzzle or getting into a hobby. You could read some affirmations, quotes or a book that reminds you of positive things.

Once you get into the routine of ignoring the negative thoughts, it will become easier to replace them with positive ones.

Here are the characteristics of people who are connected with the Law of Intention:

These people expect success!

They never rely on luck.

They Decide to do something, then do it.

The focus is on what will happen.

Thoughts are on only positive goals.

They helps others become great.

Imagination Dedication

The doorway to change in our lives beings in the seeding stage….During the process of inward movement (i.e meditation, introspection, day dreaming). Inward movement is just as potent as its opposite…for that let us give proper thanks for the imagination today; our divine tool for travel to anywhere, a tool for also reliving chosen experiences, healing from our past also, traveling the world and manifesting our goals while on the earthly plane…
we should always use these tools abundantly for healing ourselves and this planet. We should manage our divine tool (our imagination) with discipline and use it to recreate the magic we want to see in the world… simplicity is powerful…. To be subtle but determined is necessary for vitality! Saving something for later is critical for survival. We are more than we know. The power known as abundance that we seek- is within. So sit and create it…i guarantee no money will be needed for your journey within…Travel light! Blissful Beginnings To You!

Listening Makes All The Difference

How many times have you been talking away, wrapped up in a conversation, sharing something important, meaningful or revealing about yourself only to realize that the person you are talking with has drifted away and is obviously somewhere else? And, if you tell the truth, haven’t you done the very same thing yourself? What does it take for us to really hear what someone else is saying to us about themselves?

Genuine connections begin with deep listening. And satisfying communication requires us to be fully present for each other and to really hear what is being offered up. For most of us deep listening does not come naturally. In fact life experience often trains our natural deep listening abilities right out of us.

There are many ways that our ability to hear someone else becomes blocked. Once we know about these blocks we have a much better chance of releasing them and cultivating more satisfying habits. Here are three of common ways we undermine the quality of communication in our relationships.

Three Common Communication Blocks 

1. We listen for what needs fixing, changing or figuring out. Many of us learned very early in life to look and listen for problems. We are quick to notice what is not working and what is wrong. We are busy analyzing and sorting for what is not right. Our perspective distorts our listening abilities.

2. We listen for opportunities to share our own wisdom, knowledge and competence. We are busy listening to the running commentary inside our own head while someone else is talking to us.

3. We assume that we know what words and sentences are coming next. Often we have moved on long before our partners’ sharing is complete. We have lost our curiosity, the ability to be open with wonder about another human being.

Being fully present for another is an art that can be cultivated. The following antidotes will give you some clues about how to go about this.

Listening: The TAO of EFFECTIVE LISTENING - Yin and Yang of Listening: Listening to Emotins and Active Listening
The Antidotes 

1. See others as whole and complete right from the start. Know that everyone has a source of internal wisdom and intelligence that they can access for their own answers and guidance.

This might feel like a big leap at first. When people are telling us their “problems” we automatically assume that they want us to do something about them. But there are many times when the greatest gift we can give another is our confidence in their own abilities to find solutions for themselves. Granted this is not always the case and in some situations, when advice is clearly sought and asked for there is nothing wrong with offering help. But often we interfere when quiet listening would serve the most.

2. Give up trying to impress others with your brilliance and be fully present for them instead. The fact that you know things and have gifts and talents is without question. Everybody does. If you want to create genuine connections with others, forget about your self and get curious about them instead.

3. Be curious and approach each communication – whether with someone you have just met or someone you have been married to for thirty years, with fresh eyes of wonder. We change and so do our friends, children and partners. When you think you already know everything there is to know about another person the adventure of intimacy begins to falter.

You can create genuine intimate connections by looking for wholeness, focusing fully on the other person and cultivating ongoing curiosity. Listen in this way and notice how the loving feelings between you and those you care about blossom.

Yin and Yang of Communcation - The Tao of Communication

The Law of Attraction is not working for you? Let’s see why not.

You are concerned because the The Law is NOT working for you for some reason. Here is a quick assessment to see where you are in the LOA process.

 

Please answer the following questions using these answers   (a. YES   b. NO)

Open a document and record your answers there or write your answers on a piece of paper. 

1. Have you clearly defined your Goals in writing?

2. Do you spend at least 10 minutes a day visualizing your goals as if they are already achieved – without conflicting thoughts or emotions?

3. Do you spend at least 5 minutes every day – to reflect on what you are grateful for in your life?

4. Do you regularly say you are depressed and then go into dark periods where you shut yourself off from the world?

5. Do you eat foods that make you feel good?

6. Are you constantly saying that nothing positive works for you?

7. Do you perceive that most people are against you in the world?

8. Are you speaking about the things you do not want to see in your life all the time to others?

9. Do you feel it is someone elses’ job to cheer you up when you are not feeling your best?

10. Do you visualize the end result of your goals and dreams on a regular basis while smiling and feeling good?

~YOU ATTRACT THAT WHICH YOU ARE A VIBRATIONAL MATCH TO.  WHERE IS YOUR ATTENTION THIS MOMENT?

Knowing Versus Believing~ What’s the Difference?

Knowing vs Believing

When practicing the steps to manifesting abundance its important to remember when you get to the 3rd step in the Manifesting Abundance Process you have to work with the word KNOW. It is true that some people use the word believe and do not understand where the word knowing seals the process of manifesting perfecting with The Law of Attraction. I will say there is an enormous difference between the two of them. Again:

1. Decide your wants or goals

2. Affirm what you want

3. Know you have it

4. Enjoy the image of having it

5. Let go, allow and receive the blessings

We have to clarify what we believe versus what we know. Most people think what they believe about the nature of reality and what they know about reality are one and the same thing, but this is incorrect. When we say, “I believe,” we indicate that we do not know by personal experience. For example;“I believe that I will live a long life if I don’t smoke, if I don’t eat meat, if I don’t drink, if I’m loyal to my spouse, if I don’t lie.” What I’m really saying is, “I don’t know but I hope so.”

Beliefs are usually based on the assumptions of a person, a philosophy or school of thought that we consider an authority. Usually we apply these words to ourselves because they appeal to us, and then we begin to ‘believe’ they are true.

There is a fundamental difference between believing something and knowing something. Beliefs, such as theology or theories, are invariably arrived at through a process of logical deduction are usually taught to people by their peers, mentors, and society – whereas knowing something is arrived at through personal experience.

Another example, humans know that they are physically alive in this planet – not because they think it based on some theory taught to them by their peers or because they have deduced it – but rather because they are Experiencing it. The experience of living provides a person with the ultimate testimony which is completely personal, ‘proof’ that they are physically alive on earth and this KNOWING transcends the need for either belief or logic.

Words

Finally, it is important to use a word that lets the universe feel your unfathomable understanding in it and in the role that source plays in your life.

If there is any doubt in the process of manifesting you may or may not get your desires at all or you will get them in a longer span of time than when you asked for them. Remember the process, and see what works for you. One thing is true, the universe will reveal the truth to you no matter what, because experience is a true teacher.
