Energy Work Basics Part 2: What lifts your spirit?
Posted by on 01 December, 2005

What lifts your spirit? Find out and learn why it matters to include as many of these items as possible into your daily life.

Remember, everything is made of energy. Each of us has an energy field. Our thoughts and emotions extend beyond our physical bodies and influence the people and spaces around us. The energy of thoughts and emotions hangs around in spaces after the people have left.

Get a pen and paper. Quickly write down as many things as possible that lift your spirit. A tip to make sure you get down all the important ways to lift your spirit: Think physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Now write!

Look over your list.

What “physical” ways to lift your spirit did you record?

Physical activities: dancing, exercise, playing sports, hiking, playing a musical instrument, and gardening.

Sights: beautiful objects, nature, a good-looking guy or gal, flowers, pets, rainbows.

Sounds: children’s laughter, your favourite music, waves crashing on the shore, rain on the roof.

Smells: baking bread, a whiff of perfume, the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee, the air after a spring rain.

Tastes: biting into an orange, chocolate, eating.

Touch: the feel of silk on your skin, a romantic interlude, a luxurious soak in a tub, a massage, the earth between your fingers or toes, the wind in your face as you sail.

What mental ways did you write down?

Crossword puzzles; reading books: fiction: mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, historical, thrillers, epics and plays, and non-fiction: biographies, science, travel, self-improvement, and inspirational; playing cards and board games; learning something new; planning a trip; figuring something out.

What emotional ways did you identify?

Spending time with friends and family, vacations, laughter, joyful activities.

What spiritual things did you list?

Meditation, worship, volunteering, listening to beautiful music, being in the moment, gratitude, being in nature.

Did you find it was difficult to separate the ways that uplift your spirit into the different categories? That’s okay. It helped to make sure you remembered the important ways.

Next, are the ways you recorded regular parts of your life? Which ones are? Which ones are not? What would it take to make the underused ways regular parts of your life?

Now, take a few minutes and plan how to make the 3 ways you miss the most a regular part of your life. Put your plan into action. You’ll be glad you did!

When you lift your spirit, you raise your vibration. And as you learned in Energy Work Basics Part 1, you feel “better” and “lighter” when your spirits are high. And so do the people around you!

Is Man´s Next Step Like A Can of Potted Meat?
Posted by on 19 November, 2004

Is it the dawning of the Age of Aquarius? For years, predictions have indicated that humanity is readying itself for a golden age, a so called new age that is right around the corner just waiting to roll in.

Is it the dawning of the Age of Aquarius? For years, predictions have indicated that humanity is readying itself for a golden age, a so called new age that is right around the corner just waiting to roll in. According to these forecasts, the air we breath will be clean and our environment pure. Hunger, starvation and disease will be eliminated. Most importantly, we will finally experience the peace and harmony we all desire and we will live in the spirit of brotherly love.

I too long for these events to take place, however, the reality that currently exists on our planet is very different and the choices we are making are sending us down a road that does not lead to salvation.

When I think about where we are going and how we are getting there, it can be likened to a can of potted meat. For those of you that are unfamiliar with potted meat, it is a canned meat product that is found next to the Spam and Vienna sausages at the supermarket. Its primary ingredients include cooked beef fatty tissue, beef hearts, beef tripe, cooked pork fatty tissue and mechanically separated chicken. These tasty morsels are ground up into a paste-like consistency, mixed with lots of salt and chemicals, canned and sold for human consumption.

I’m sure by now your mouth is watering and you just can’t wait to sink your teeth into a forkful of this tempting delicacy. And while I make this comment in jest, the reality is that three major food manufacturers fight for shelf space at the supermarket each hoping to capture the potted meat market. The saddest or should I say scariest part of the saga is the fact that people buy it! It isn’t as if only one or two people get the urge to munch down on some good ol’ potted meat, there are thousands if not millions of people around the country why buy it, creating enough value, based on sales, to keep it on the shelf.

By now I know you’re wondering what potted meat has to do with our next step, but it has everything to do with it. Take a moment and look around. Every day, our air grows increasingly worse. Obesity in children is running rampant. The amount and quality of real, wholesome foods on the shelves at supermarkets are being overrun by prepackaged preprocessed chemically laden ones. We fear for our safety, distrust our neighbors and hide in our hearts and in our homes. And like the potted meat, even though we don’t really like it and know it isn’t good for us, we buy it anyway.

Let’s face it folks, we live in a chaotic world and in our haste we look for the easy answer. We let big business and big brother decide what we want, what we need and how much we can put up with. We’ve allowed the air we breathe, the foods we eat and the things we do to poison us and like pigs going to slaughter we do nothing about it, except perhaps complain.

Instead of working to bring in this new and golden age, many of us are sitting around waiting for it to show up. There are some who believe that if we pray hard enough, hope deeply enough or say enough affirmations that things will somehow magically change without any effort on our part.

There are others who believe that it can only be achieved after a major calamity falls upon the earth recreating balance in the imbalanced world in which we live. That it is only through the workings of karma that a profound shift can ever be achieved.

So how can we create this better world? The first step is it needs to become our number one priority. We must decide it is of utmost importance to us and let money, greed and personal gain take a back seat. It necessitates a change in consciousness from “what do I want” to “what do WE need”. Until there is a dramatic transformation in the hearts and minds of man, the goal of a new world, while a nice thought is unachievable.

Unfortunately, many of us have chosen to stand on the sidelines and wait for the tide of personal and planetary changes to occur around us. However, it is not until we stand as a unified whole and demand that change take place that anything will happen at all.

Is it going to be hard? Damn right it’s going to be hard. Tom Hanks in the movie A League of Their Own stated: “If it was easy, everyone would do it. The hard…is what makes it great”. Remember change doesn’t happen by hope or by prayer alone, it requires action. So take a stand, make a decision, let your voice be heard, your greatness shine. Don’t let karma rear its ugly head. Just say no to potted meat and choose to bring in the future you desire.
