Thursday, October 01, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and TWO giveaways!

Excuses Begone!

My apologies my lovely Butterflies, there were no words of inspiration yesterday, but I fully intend to make it up to you today!
Yesterday I had the amazing privilege to join up with Dr. Wayne Dyer's 2009 Live Tour called,  'Excuses Begone! - How to Change Lifelong Self-Defeating Thinking Habits' at the Jacob Javitz center in NYC. 3,000 people in one conference room sharing one purpose, learning how to put an end to the excuses and negative self dialogue in our heads. The energy was amazing!
I want to share the Tour Description for a very specific reason, this description contains 7 questions, seven life altering questions, if you will only invest a moment in yourself to answer them. Make answering these questions honestly your moment of inspiration and meditation today. Or use them as inspiration for a journal entry tonight.
Tour Description

In these all-new lectures, Wayne will take you through the seven questions that constitute the Excuses Begone paradigm, and show you how it worked for him and how it can work for you. By examining the support system that a person has erected over a lifetime and putting those timeworn thoughts through the seven steps in this paradigm, excuses begin to fade away and are replaced with thoughts that speak fervently, almost shouting, Yes, you can change any excuse pattern, no matter how long or how pervasive the conditioning process has been! Wayne has seen people change from a lifetime of being overweight or addicted to all manner of substances by simply applying the principles inherent in the Excuses Begone approach to life.

During these profound, life-changing lectures you’ll explore the seven questions of the Excuses Begone paradigm shift:

• Is it true?
• Where did the excuses come from?
• What’s the payoff?
• What would my life look like if I couldn’t use these excuses?
• Can I create a rational reason to change?
• Can I access universal cooperation in shedding old habits?
• How do I continuously reinforce this new way of being?

If you are truly serious about changing any long-established habits of thought that have led you to use excuses as your rationale for staying on the same self-defeating path, then you are encouraged to follow the principles and practices presented in these all-new lectures!

Discover a new way of changing old thinking habits!

For being in a room filled with 3,000 attendees, it was a very warm and intimate evening. We learned a great deal about the man behind the books. The Human Being. Or as he would probably prefer, 'the spiritual being having the human experience.'
He is a 69 year old father of Eight, who began his life in an orphanage, who over came a tremendous amount of personal battles in his life, yet he always knew not only what he could be, but he would be. He shared a story about having the following words outside one of his homes for many years 'You are going to have an attitude everyday, pick a good one!' It reminds me of the mantra I share with you all daily 'Remember, Attitude really does determine Altitude.'
Another exploration, that  of Motivation vs. Inspiration, really stood out in my mind and I thought we'd also explore that here today. Motivation is when You take an idea, and don't let anything deter you from it and Inspiration is when an idea gets hold of YOU and doesn't let you go. So reader, are you motivated or inspired? Which do you want to be? I personally vary between the two at different times. I think most of us do. But is it more fulfilling to be inspired? Are there steps you can take to become more inspired?
The Voices In Your Head
Right now if I asked you to list what's wrong in your life, you could probably rattle off the list in one breath, almost without thinking right? Wayne gave a very strong reminder last night to 'stop putting attention on what you DON'T WANT. Stop discussing what is wrong. What is wrong in this moment, this day, this hour, this week, this month and this year. Don't give it energy. Don't give it intention. Don't allow it to take hold of you, to take root and to destroy what you are working so hard to build. A better you each and everyday really is possible.
Don't Feed The Spiritual Vampire
We all have one. That person who drains our energy. That person we least look forward to speaking with on a daily basis. Stop feeding them. Don't enable the negativity by participating in the talk. If you allow this person to drone on about everything wrong in their life, those things gain power, they continue to experience them, and that person's power to suck all the happiness out of a moment will just increase. And Who wants that??
Divine Relationships
We all want them, but how are we going about creating them? Wayne asked us to 'create divine relationships in our lives by elavating our concept of ourselves to a higher level.' Be what you want to attract. It really is that simple.
It would honestly take days to truly dissect the many topics that were covered in just over 4 hours. But I will say if you have the opportunity to see Dr. Wayne Dyer speak in your city TAKE IT. Those hours will be the absolute best investment in yourself that you could possibly make. It will be the biggest and best investment in your happiness and creating the future you truly deserve.
Aside from reminders to be careful about the influences we allow into our homes everyday, we were asked to take the last 5 minutes of our day everyday and 'assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled'. When we sleep, our subconcious minds have 8 hours to 'marinate' (his words readers!) in the last thoughts we go to bed with. Why not shape those thoughts ourselves? Why not give our minds 8 hours to 'marinate' on the life we want to create. The people we want by our sides, the jobs we want to be working on? Put those thoughts in your mind before bed and change your life from the inside. I began his advice last night. And I will say that I honestly tossed and turned way less than ever and woke up with a new level of excitement and energy. (I'm sure my clients are going to be thrilled!)

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will change my inner dialogue and put aside all of my own excuses into creating the life I desire for myself.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
