Life is Full of Adventures. Let’s Share One!

We are off to Mallorca, Spain to recharge, gain clarity, remove blocks, and move forward in our lives from a new place of power.

Our dates or set for November 1st – 8th, 2014 on the Island of Mallorca, Spain. The sacred grounds we will call “home” for this special week are nestled high above the Port of Soller, on the North-West coast of Mallorca.

Cas Bernats is a 16th century Finca, brought back from ruin in 1984, with all the modern amenities added. The owners took great care in maintaining the rustic, authentic charm and character that gives this Finca tons of personality.

The unique environment we have selected for our sacred space offers a deep experience of the crystal clear air, the majestic views of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, and the magic of the ancient wisdom that has been here before us.

Developing Wealth Consciousness

Developing Wealth Consciousness is about more than just money. If you are here on this site the chances are you know a little about The Law Of Attraction, however have you ever asked yourself this question ‘Do I really believe, beyond doubt, that I create my own circumstances?’

Most people feel a little uncomfortable when they ask themselves that question, because by default it requires that if you answer ‘Yes’ then you have to take FULL responsibility for your life. And as hard as that may be, there is also GREAT power in it as you move forward, knowing you are a being with the ability to create as you wish.

One of my great teachers David Neagle  speaks often about The Law of Polarity. In a nutshell he teaches that everything is created as a whole, it has a top, a bottom, sides and so on. If one side of something exists, then by law the other side of it must exist also. You cannot have the front of the book without the back. You may not be able to SEE the back but you know it is there. So, if you apply that to any circumstance in your life, including wealth, and you are experiencing lack, by law the opposite of that must exist. Abundance must exist. And more than that YOU experiencing abundance is a circumstance that must exist, you just need to shift your awareness so that you can SEE that circumstance.

Just realizing this can open doors.

Developing Your Own Wealth Consciousness

So how is your own wealth consciousness? Do you experience an abundance of wealth inflow into your life? Or perhaps you are experiencing lack right now or even an abundance of debt (Eeek!) and you desire to change this.  I have found that this transformational work happens best with small shifts in perspective. That isn’t to say you can’t have a quantum leap in this area – you totally can. However the first step is just to begin to change your awareness. To increase your ‘consciousness’ of abundance.

Start by asking yourself the following questions. They are magical questions that get your mind focused where it needs to be in order to begin creating wealth in your life:

Who could you be WITH plenty of money?

What would it feel like if you never had to worry about money again?

What would you do?

Who and what suffers in your world if you don’t have the money to fulfill your dreams? What about the wider impact you would have made?

A simple shift to help:

It’s about loving yourself. So if you find it hard to imagine having the money, or you just can’t feel the positive emotion around that easily, then instead think of wealth consciousness as developing the value in yourself. As another way to love yourself more.

You also need to check in and see what negative beliefs you may be holding, on a subconscious level, about money and wealthy people. These are likely to be beliefs you inherited from your Parents, Grandparents and the people around you growing up. You will need to release any negative beliefs around money to open the way for it to come to you.

5% of people in the USA earn over $100,000 – will you be one of them? And what amazing things will you do in the world when you are?

Under a Tuscan Moon

Some of us stand at night looking up at the heavens and feel humbled and tiny and insignificant.

Some of us feel connected to all that is and feel a sense of expanded consciousness, as if there were literally more space between our cells.

None of us are “wrong.”

Being in vastness, whether that’s under a starry sky, standing at the rim of the Grand Canyon, or sitting on a pier jutting out into the ocean, has a way of putting things in perspective. But it’s important to remember that here, as everywhere, you choose your perspective. So how about choosing one that works for you and uplifts you instead of one that makes you feel frightened and small?

The writer Anne Lamott has a saying she likes to quote, which comes from her late father: “Every hundred years, all new people.” For her, this helps her put her day-to-day cares, struggles and emotions in perspective. She also finds it freeing: if in a hundred years everyone you know, including yourself, will be dead, when are you gonna carpe some diem, huh? What does wearing matching socks and playing by all the “rules” and trying desperately to fit in match up with a scenario in which, not so very long from now, no one will be around who cared?

So being in vastness and gaining a sense of “Wow, my problems really aren’t that big or that permanent” can be a great and freeing perspective. On the other hand, “Wow, I am really just a speck of meaningless dust and nothing I do matters” isn’t exactly a sentiment likely to make you want to jump up and down and execute a fist pump.  “Go, insignificant me!”

Then there’s the other way to go:  smiling up at the stars, or into the vast rocky crevasses, or out over the endless blue water, and taking a deep deep breath. You belong here, and you are blessed to be here, right at this time, right at this place. If you go very quiet and close your eyes, you may feel the energy of the vastness itself–does it really feel impersonal to you? Or does it feel like a great big hug from the Universe?

Another author, the late Michael Crichton, wrote about spending a night out in the desert and waking in the middle of the night to see that the stars above his sleeping bag had formed a peculiar formation, a message, even.  What was the big message?  “HI!”

Now, as Crichton himself observed, if he’s been lying the other direction, it’s possible the stars would have read “IH,” which is considerably less uplifting and magical. But he wasn’t, and they didn’t.

And so he smiled back at the Universe and whispered, from the cozy depths of his sleeping bag, “Hi back.”

When you are somewhere very big, does it make you feel very small, or does it help you expand to feel one with it all, part of some vast and wonderful design and creation?

Did you know you get to choose?

Think You’re a Superstar? Well, Right You Are!

It’s hard to top John Lennon’s lyrics when it comes to writing a pithy post about “joining the human race,” “recognizing your brothers,” and “getting yourself together.” At the heart of this classic is his message, brought home in song after song after song: we are all superstars.  And we all shine on. Like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.

Raised Vibration is about nothing less than raising the vibration of the entire planet, one superstar human being at a time. We would be honored to have you join us.

Watch Your Language

A lot of us have a language problem. And we’re not talking about the potty-mouth stuff.

Yellow loveWe have our affirmations. We make our V.I.B.E. (vision) boards. We write in our journals, we make our big dreams and plans, and oh, we dream BIG and we dream beautifully and we think positively and we make sure to state whatever it is that we want as if it is already here:  I am a creator of abundance. I am healthy and fit. Money flows easily to me. I am in harmony in all my supportive and loving relationships.

And then, dang it, we leave the house.

And we say to our children, “No, I’m not buying you that 1000-piece Star Wars Lego set, we don’t have the money for that!”

And we say to our friends, “Do I look fat in these capri pants? I swear, my butt is as wide as a barn door.”

And we say to our partners, “What, you’re working late again??? It’s like we’re just ROOMMATES!”

Oops.

Funny how we forget that the Universe–and we–are listening no matter where we are, isn’t it? It’s like those people–you know who you are–who think we can’t see you picking your nose while you idle at a stoplight in your car.

We can see you. The Universe can hear you. Your own subconscious has a glass held up to the wall, and it’s listening to every word you say.

Just like we tell our kids: use your words. But hey, a footnote to that? Use ’em carefully.

 

Fear of Falling

Last week, something horrible happened—the stuff of nightmares. 52-year-old Rosy Esparza was killed when she fell out of a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas.

Texas GiantNobody knows whether the locking bar that is supposed to hold riders in place failed, whether it wasn’t closed correctly in the first place–apparently Esparza questioned one of the ride operators and was told that as long as she had heard it “click” into place that it was okay, but no one double-checked–or whether the ride itself is inherently unsafe. It was revamped recently to make for an even steeper, thrill-producing experience. It is, of course, now closed and under heavy inspection.

Certainly no one at Six Flags or at the company who manufactured the roller coaster held the intention of someone losing their life.

So what’s the takeaway here? Is this particular roller coaster lethal? Is every roller coaster unsafe, even if just a little? Are all amusement park rides suspect?

Around the same time that Esparza died, a friend’s daughter lost her life at the camp where she was a counselor when a tree unexpectedly fell over onto her, a 3-year-old boy sleeping outside was run over by a truck making a U-turn, and a Las Vegas Cirque de Soleil performer fell 90 feet to her death at the end of a performance.

These are all tragedies. But while there may be cautionary lessons to be drawn from them, they are not warning signs to the rest of us to stop living our lives.

To live is to risk. We take a chance every time we step out of our house, even when we get out of bed. In fact, we’re not even “safe” in bed, considering the number of fatal heart attacks that happen during the small hours of the morning.

So what do we do? We take a deep breath. We grieve and honor the fallen. We keep going. And we don’t let fear–a useful adviser and not one we should categorically ignore–take over and start driving our bus.

Ride on, friends. Ride on.

You’re Such an Animal! 10 Reasons Why That’s a Good Thing

Sure, we human beings have these big, complicated brains. And that’s awesome. But sometimes, it’s equally awesome to remember that we’re animals, too. Because we’ve forgotten some of the best life lessons we were born with:

w1937919411. Animals eat when they’re hungry, drink when they’re thirsty, and sleep when they’re tired. How much better health would you be in if you did the same?

2. Animals are always present in the moment. They are not worried about something that happened in the past (though a past scary event can trigger present fear is the animal is presented with similar circumstances). They aren’t off daydreaming or living in the future. Animal time is always “now.”

3. Animals, instinctive defensiveness to protect themselves or their young aside, are without judgment, no matter how any cat cartoons and photos you’ve seen attributing smugness, disdain or other human emotions to felines. You can train an animal to fear you by your actions, but otherwise, you are just you to your pet.

4. Animals are great at finding the opportunity in any event. Garbage spills all over the floor? Free food! Someone left a dirty t-shirt on the floor? Cool beans, a new bed (or, possibly, chew toy, depending on the age of your pet). The gate’s open? Run with your face into the wind for the sheer thrill of it!

5. Animals are nurturers. Yes, they also hunt, kill and eat each other. But there are simply too many photos and evidence of interspecies care of young to ignore. Animals instinctively take care of others.

6. Animals are completely non-materialistic. Sure, they’ll wear that cute sweater you bought ’em, and they may love their stuffed chew toy. But without the accessories, they’d be just fine, too. They have no concept of “stuff.”

7. Animals give 100 percent to everything they do, whether it’s wolfing down kibble, chasing a butterfly, giving themselves a bath, or methodically chewing the baseboards. They are always all in.

8. Animals live on THEIR time. They “know” when it’s dinner time. They “know” when you are coming home from work. But a clock is as meaningless to them as the concept of “today” or “tomorrow” or “next Thursday.” Their concept of time is a felt sense, within their bodies, cued by nature.

9. Animals are rarely embarrassed by anything. Yes, you can see the occasional cat falling off a table and acting like “I totally meant to do that.” But look: they live their lives, naked, in front of everyone else. They have no self-consciousness about their bodies or its functions.

10. Animals never lose their sense of play. A stick? A ball? A reflection in the mirror? It’s all good!

If you’re getting yourself twisted in knots over something, take a cue from the animals and ask yourself, is this something an animal would be worried about? If the answer is no, try a second question: so why am I wasting my time caught up in all the drama?

Eat if you’re hungry. Drink when you’re thirsty. Sleep when you’re tired. Preferably on a comfy surface dappled with the smile of a sunbeam.

What in the World Are You Thinking???

What we focus on expands. Or, as neuroscientists prefer to say, “what’s fired gets wired.”

But are you really aware of just what’s going down in  your mind?

Most of us are aware of our significant thoughts–but even here, we may not understand that we choose them.  Big thoughts like “nothing works out for me,” or “men are creeps” or “money is the root of all evil” go therefore unchallenged, and so they have the power to inform and influence every action we take.

Ick.

Do you want those kinds of thoughts driving you and creating your world?

And that’s just the big stuff.  What about the little nattering soundtrack most of us play all day in the background, the one that narrates our day? “You should have turned left at that light now you’re going to be late oh you forgot to stop at the bank you’re going to have to borrow money for lunch again no wonder no one from the office wants to go out with you maybe not even your boss oh what if I lose my job but I hate my job but I need the money what’s for dinner?”

Buried in that stream-of-consciousness babble are some really painful and limiting beliefs.  And there they are, thrashing around your brain virtually unchecked and perhaps even unnoticed.

Those thoughts impact your actions and create your reality to you.

Every thought, big or small, conscious or unconscious, is a choice.

Choose wisely.

I Just Need More Stuff–Don’t I?

In most Western cultures, we’ve been conditioned to believe that stuff = self-fulfillment.

toomuchstuffWe fall for the illusion that if and when we get a better (car, TV, gaming console, pair of shoes, house, crystal tiara), why, THEN we’d be happy! The problem is, once that initial thrill of acquisition wears off–and wear off it will–there’s always something new to long for. It’s like that old tortilla chip slogan: bet you can’t eat just one.

Does that mean stuff = bad? Of course not. Sometimes, an object is closely aligned with an activity or part of ourselves that brings us great joy, like a wonderful, well-used stock pot you love to use for gut-warming stews, a t-shirt that makes you smile every time you wear it, or a vehicle whose features enable you to do something you hadn’t been able to do before–like go off-road. But even in these cases, the value isn’t in the objects themselves, but the feeling states we reach while using them. If we thought about it, we could probably get to that same feeling state in a bunch of other ways that might not cost a dime.

Stuff is just stuff. Not good nor bad. Not happiness or despair. Stuff is like most of everything else in our lives: it means whatever we make it mean. For many of us, so much of that stuff we were sure would make us happy morphs pretty quickly into inanimate objects we never look at, use, or feel sentimental over.

Are you wondering how to declutter, or whether you’re addicted to the high of getting more stuff?  In this short video, Adam Baker from the website manvsdebt shares inspiration to help you break the addiction and free yourself from guilt, doubt and debt.

 

The good stuff is the stuff that feeds your soul, and THAT stuff could be animal, vegetable, mineral–or intangible. Take a look around your house. Take a look inside your heart. Let go of all that does not serve.
