Wednesday, December 16, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Don't forget to connect.....

With Yourself! Have you ever been at gathering and found yourself completely on the outside looking in? You can hear people are laughing, talking, and enjoying themselves but somehow you are  not *there*?

It happens to all of us sometimes. It's amazingly easy to *dis-connect* not just with your surroundings, but with yourself this time of year.

It's sometimes as complicated as a yearning deep within your soul you keep ignoring (you know - your soul telling you it's time to change destructive habits, or is it time to break free from a job that robs you emotionally?) and sometimes it's as simple as just not wanting to be where you are at that particular moment.

We *dis-connect* from ourselves, from moments, and even from other people at different times and for reasons very much unique to each of us. But it's nothing to worry about! Sometimes you can feel it coming on, if so, great. Ask yourself why it's happening (are you hungry? tired? bored?), if you can identify what is pulling you away, you can address it. If you have ever found yourself in an incredibly happy moment and somehow found yourself pulling away from it, you need to ask yourself why? Do you have any *defeatist* mind talk in your head? Is something telling you that you shouldn't let yourself be so happy? Even worse, that you don't deserve it?

Everyday we remind you here that attitude really does determine altitude, and we do so just for this very reason. Bad patterns happen over time, and so do the good ones. We need to replace the negative mindset to make forward change in our lives. We are approaching a new year. Do you want everything to be exactly as it is now? Of course you don't! The soul wants..... we always mistake it for wanting *more* or *change* but it really goes way beyond that. Different things make us happy at different times. Your soul wants to move forward, help it along. Put the thought in your soul that you deserve every moment of happiness. Those moments life just hands you and those victories that are earned (and very much hard won). Enjoy them all with the same enthusiasm and you will find life giving you more and more reasons to be happy. To be connected. And best still? To be connected with yourself, with others, with your situation and still keep moving forward!

Today I urge you to remember to connect with YOURSELF!

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 connect with my soul's yearnings and stay connected to myself and my needs while moving forward today.'

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.

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)
