1. Stay Humble, I could be wrong…..

 

2. In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else’s path is wrong. ~ Paulo Coelho

 

3. I am doing this to myself. Everything I experience I have asked for and received as per my request. Yet, everything that happens is carefully planned by one whose only purpose is my good – even what seem to be the bad things that happen. How I see and experience the stuff that happens is what I am doing to myself, and I may or may not be making the best choices. Which is why I am learning to choose again – to make better choices in how I see and react to the stuff that seems to happen.

 

4. This is a hospital and we are here for one reason – the healing of our sick split mind. Another way to say it is that this is a school and we are here to learn. Learning and healing are the same thing when it comes to correcting a mind that is momentarily mad with guilt. One other thing – when we meet another it is our self that we meet. There is no mind that is not our mind, and all of our mind must learn and accept a healing. That is why there is a plan, and a curriculum has been established.\\

 

5. “We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible. And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.” ― Hermann Hesse

Within you

1. “Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.” ~ Richard Bach

2. “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” ~ Les Brown

3. “What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself. There’s nothing you can do that’s more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way, you will find, live, and become a realization of your own personal myth.” ~ Joseph Campbell, Pathways to Bliss

4. The best way to get rid of the pain is to feel the pain. And when you feel the pain and go beyond it, you’ll see there’s a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself. — Deepak Chopra

5. Today We Affirm: I’m always at the right place, at the right time. Through the power of my Mind, I leave my worries all behind. Thanks Jacob

6. “The beauty you see in me is a reflection of you.” ~ Vanna Bonta

1.”As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the Noticer.” ~ Wayne Dyer

 

2. You are free!  You are free to struggle. You are free to follow doubt. You are free to relax. You are free to just be who you are.

 

3. Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

4. Real love is when you’re completely committed to someone or something even when they’re acting or looks completely unlovable.

 

Wayne Dyer

1. “There are no new stressful thoughts. They’re all recycled.” – Byron Katie

 

2. It’s time to stop trying to get from another person what we are unwilling to give ourselves.

 

3. It is not death that sets us free. It is only the truth that will set us free. Killing the body will not heal the mind that makes the mistake of identifying with an illusion. That mind will simply make another illusion with which to identify.

 

4. We cannot pray our way out of a problems that we continue to “behave” our way into.  Become can be vigilant that we do not write with one hand and then erase it with the other. Affirm then stand firm.

 

5. Today We Affirm:  Life is to be savored and enjoyed! I am lining up with my highest good and adjusting my attitude as I tune to JOY. I allow happy experiences to flow on my path this week as I focus on laughing away all fear thoughts while I walk with ease through the open doors.

 

Peace of mind is internal

1. “The light of the face comes from the candle of the Spirit.” ~ Rumi

2. “Do not think that fear is the escape from fear.” ~ A Course in Miracles

3. Imaginary Limits: The limits you create will be real to you until you learn to step beyond them.  Then they will cease to be real. Then, you will look back at the reality you used to inhabit wondering how you were able to stand its narrow confines. ~ Paul Ferrini

4. Empowerment comes from letting go of victim mentality and assuming full responsibility for everything that seems to happen to us. This is not about accepting guilt or self-blame. It is about learning to make different choices that lead to gentler more loving dreams.

5. “Remind everyone close to you to be themselves, and tell them that you love them just the way they are! They’re perfect….and so are you. There’s nothing not to love. Most suffering stems from feeling “less than.” You aren’t less than anything or anyone. You are complete.” ~ Anita Moorjani

be yourself

1. Aligning our focus with the solution and not the problem… This little shift in vision will lead us to the answers we are looking for.

2. The central purpose of practicing A Course in Miracles is NOT fixing but forgiving. Play on!!!!

3. “There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.” ~ Oscar Wilde

4. We are living in an age of high stress and fear, and in the midst of trying to protect ourselves from everything we think is “out there”, we’ve forgotten to enjoy ourselves and take care of what’s inside. ~ Anita Moorjani  (the only way OUT is IN)

5. We always experience only the results of our mind. It is a simple idea. It is our mind that is complex. Whatever we want, and judge ourselve deserving of, we get – good or bad. But we want conflicting things. Sometimes wanting and not wanting the same thing at the same time. Sometimes wanting but not feeling deserving. And most important, we cannot know reality while we are still wanting fantasy – while we still want dreaming and are afraid of awakening.

1. Learn to be alone and to like it. There is nothing more freeing and empowering than learning to like your own company. ~ Mandy Hale

 

2. No matter what happens next, you will be richer for it. The Universe

 

3. There is a complete alternative to the world we think we see, and an existence that is far more expansive and inclusive than the separate little “me”  that we think we are.

 

4. “Nothing needs to be fixed. Everything is unfolding perfectly. So when you stand in your now accepting that all is well, then from that vibration, you become surrounded by more and more evidence that all is well. But when you’re convinced that things are broken, or that things have gone wrong, or that the government is doing conspiracies… then what happens is you get caught up in that vibration, and you begin to manifest that kind of stuff, and then you say, “See, I told you that things were going wrong.” ~ Abraham Hicks

 

5. It is going to take a miracle because we are the self that keeps us from knowing our Self. Everything we do to further support, assert and defend our “self” only serves to make knowing our Self seem even more difficult. So it is not the seeking but the miracle that reveals the Truth. And it is the intention, wanting, yearning and commitment of the seeker that makes way for the miracle.

Come Together

1. I am at my most powerful when I am working with Life rather than against it. ~ Anita Moorjan

 

2. “My soul guides me in the right direction.” Your soul–that inner, quiet space–is yours to consult. It will always guide you in the right direction. ~ Wayne Dyer

 

3. “No work or love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.” – Alan Watts

 

4. “To be wronged is NOTHING, unless you continue to remember it.” ~ Confucius

 

5. Fear will not go away because you have enough money in the bank or the right relationship. Fear leaves, only when love enters. It’s not about changing our circumstances. It’s about changing our identity. Focus on loving more and insecurities and doubts melt away. What can you love today? ~ Tama Kieves

 

6. Today’s Treatment Affirmation:

If I am sad, if I am hurt, if I am lonely or in despair, if I forget Who I am, or am filled with shame or regret, if I am lost or overwhelmed and confused, if I lose my way, if I feel sick, or wounded, or gripped by fear, if I feel abandoned, weak, deprived or that I am not enough, if I feel that I cannot go on, or do not know which way to turn – I do not need to withdraw from the world to hide from life. I can turn to my Refuge and Security by hanging on the Vine as I drink in the golden elixir of the Divine Love that nourishes me back to to wholeness and to remembrance of the Truth.  The Angels encircle me while I am being restored and renewed even as I go about my normal day of people, places and things. Grace enfolds me and I relax into the Everlasting Arms of the Love that forgives, heals, soothes and feeds my soul. I let go of time as I allow my heart to open to RECEIVE all of the healing Qi that is flowing through me now. There is no hurry, no way to rush the seasons of life. Where I am is where I am, and I allow myself this time. Mercy, kindness, gentleness and peace are the sun that warm me now as I hang on the Vine drinking in the One Power and Presence which restoreth my soul.  ~ Jacob Glass

Finding JOY… Giving and Receiving being the SAME… October 23, 2013

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 4:36 pm

Today someone will decide to look for and find joy in their day. Someone will wake up totally aware that they have unlimited power available to them. Someone will have a shift in their perspective which will change their destiny.

Maybe that someone is you?

I’ve noticed in life that it’s not that it becomes easier, it’s just that I navigate through it with an attitude that improves every day, so it seems easier and I become more relaxed and resilient as I enjoy the journey. It really isn’t the world that changes…it’s us.

Is life ever going to knock you down?  Possibly.  A better question is, are you going to get up or are you going to let it keep you down?

If you’re ready to live a truly extraordinary life here’s some simple suggestions to help you be the someone whose life has expanded into one of greater power and possibility.

1. Honor yourself

Honor who you are and why you’re here. You have been given incredible gifts and talents that are uniquely yours. Give thanks. Accept the gifts, find joy in them and then your joy will radiate out into the world.

You have Divine given talents, your job is to develop them and by using them live the most extraordinary life you can imagine.

2. Be open

Keep your mind open to new ideas and concepts. The greatest barriers to new ideas is the need to be right. So give that up.

Nurture your new ideas, they might be priceless. Don’t worry what anyone else thinks. Throughout history many of our greatest thinkers and philosophers were bumped off because they had new ideas that weren’t very well received by the society of their day. Yet many years later, most of them are considered to be profound and enlightened thinkers.

Even if your ideas aren’t considered profound by others, they could have a profound impact in YOUR life.

3. Choose your mood.

You don’t have to live at the whims and vagaries of the facts of life.  Moods aren’t simply the effects of the happenings of life, they’re also the causes.

You might say you’re thrilled because you’ve accomplished something you value, not realizing that the process works just as well in reverse and you can accomplish something easily because you’ve chosen to feel thrilled first.

Don’t keep your attention and consequently your feelings on the world that is, instead give more focus to the world that could be…and you get to choose what that looks like by using your imagination.

Allow the outer world to dominate your thinking and before too long you’ll be vibrating with that energy.

4. Find a way to be supportive

Support everyone you come in contact with so they can see how great they are. At heart we’re all part of the divine and all connected to one another. Be the voice of perpetual love and encouragement.

It’s not possible to feel anything other than good about ourselves when we’re supporting others and as an added bonus you bring the best and greatest you to the surface. We meet too many along the way who, in order to feel better about themselves, need to make someone else seem small. That’s no way to be great. And no way to live an extraordinary life.

5. Relish new things

To have something different in your life you have to be someone different then you can do something differently.  If you’re comfortable where you are, you’re in a rut. Being a little bit scared of your next step is evidence that you’re about to move into a different state of mind: A new state of consciousness that holds all the joys and wonders of  your journey.

Celebrate that.

Be one with nature, which loves to continually create new life. Don’t be so afraid of failure that it restricts you from living your extraordinary life. The one you were always intended to live. Jump in, now.

6. Don’t follow the crowd

They probably don’t know where they’re going.

Set yourself free from the goodwill and acceptance of other people. If they don’t see the world the same way you do…let it be.

Wonderful things might await the one who, regardless of current circumstances, keeps on heading toward their own dreams, safe in the knowledge the Universe, or God, or Source always conspires to support you in manifesting the best life possible for you. Delightful, marvelous you.

You’ll never know how far you can go unless you begin your journey. The only limit is your thinking.

7. Allow desires

Get over the idea that desires are somehow not spiritual, or worthy. Every desire you have comes from spirit asking for greater expression.  Every desire is the answer to life’s problems. And if it’s a material desire, great, go for it.  If it’s a spiritual desire, great, go for it. And if you want it all, great, go for that. There’s nothing inherently wrong with desires, only thinking makes it so.

We expand and grow because we have a desire to. We seek God because we desire to. We want to experience greater success, more love, more money, better health because we desire to.  It’s all good.

8. Don’t ignore how you feel

Feel your feelings and move on.  If something hurts, don’t push it away. Don’t wallow in it either. The feeling is real and if it hurts it’s because it mattered to you. Once you’ve felt it, let it go.

It isn’t the feelings of hurt or anger or sadness that cause the problem it’s holding on to them, never to let them go   Those vibrations get stuck in the very cells of your body, leading to sickness or depression. Don’t do that to yourself.

9. Expectations

Expect the good and great to show up. If you keep in mind a picture of bright and wonderful happenings you put yourself in the state of mind that allows those desires to freely flow to you.

Your expectations are connected to universal supply.  Expecting something small is okay, just don’t be surprised when you get it.  I used to tell myself not to have expectations because if they weren’t met I’d be disappointed.  What a sad indictement of my faith.

Once I set higher standards for my life, for love, for creativity, and for wisdom I began to live up to those expectations.  Miracles occurred.

10. Guard the gate

We’ve all been conditioned with beliefs that came from someone else. But you have your own heroic mission in life. And now you have the opportunity to be selective in what ideas you’re willing to entertain, what beliefs to accept and choose that will guide YOU on your journey

Don’t allow anything in unless it’s conducive to producing a full and happy life. At the same time remember number 2 above.

Whatever is repeatedly allowed into our subconscious mind will soon become a belief, and then becomes a part of our life experience.  Look no further than the life you currently lead, it’s your subconscious showing you all that it holds.

And for pity’s sake this isn’t about blame. Please hear that. It isn’t for blame. That’s ego stuff. It’s about observing and tweaking or correcting the consciousness that drew the experiences to us. If we choose to.

11. Focus

We want to be productive, so we have to be doing something, right?  Errr not so much.  At least not all the time. Sometimes the most productive thing we can do for ourselves is to turn everything off…or take ourselves out of our daily routine and just be.

We don’t have unlimited fuel to run on.  We might be unlimited beings but our bodies and minds and spirits need a chance to recharge, to be renewed. Life is constantly regrouping, regrowing, replenishing itself, as must we if we are to continue to transform our experiences.

12. Conviction

Make up your mind that the greatest thing that ever happened to you was discovering how to live an extraordinary life.

We must make our desire the dominant idea in our minds;  the idea from which the majority of our thoughts will flow. By keeping our attention focused on the fulfillment of a desire we generate the energy that recreates this idea in our outer world.

Be self-persuaded, convince yourself that whatever you’re after is already yours. This way we’re guided onto the appropriate path and the right action necessary to accomplish our goal will follow.

What suggestions do you have for living an extraordinary life? Or what’s stopped you from doing this?

Leave a comment below and share your insights with us. You never know yours just might be the voice that made a difference in our world.

Thanks, as always for reading and sharing.

Encourage one another

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 10.23.13

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 4:29 pm

1. The world around us is an outward picturing of an inward state of mind. It is sad that we strive to teach our children only of the world around us. It would be far better if we taught them to master their inward state of mind. What would this world look like if we really learned and taught the value of peace?

2. Complaining only affirms the vibrational level we have chosen to dwell in…

3. When we say we just can’t let go, move on, we cannot forget or forgive, and we don’t know what to do – so be it. Perhaps there is something more for us to understand and to learn while we are there in that space.. It is all a choice. Not bad or wrong, it is simply a place.

However, when we are ready and want to leave, the path is: replacing the complaints with appreciation. It is here where things naturally begin to free up and what had seemed to be elusive, is suddenly present. When we feel that defeatist attitude coming on, stop… breathe into it. For every time we replenish, it raises our level of awareness.

There is no use in denying negativity, it is necessary for it’s opposite, AND we don’t have to stay there. Acknowledge it, and then we can fill our house (our BEing) up with gratitude. Clarity and answers come in as soon as we open the door for them.

4. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie

5. “Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it and let it be without imposing a word or mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

6. “Nature never hurries, yet everything is accomplished.” ~ Lao Tsu

7. “Without our stories, we are not only able to act clearly and fearlessly, we are also a friend, a listener. We are people living happy lives. We are appreciation and gratitude that have become as natural as breath itself. Happiness is the natural state for someone who knows that there’s nothing to know and that we already have everything we need, right here now.” ~ Byron Katie
