It’s Thanks-Giving

Hello All and Welcome to October!

WOW! The world sure has changed since my last newsletter earlier this summer! There have been so many opportunities for us to experience the contrast and get clear about what we really want. Many of our American friends are reeling at the “meltdown of Wall Street” and the financial sector and some of us here are also affected by the stock market, both directly and indirectly as many pensions and mutual funds are invested heavily in the US market. Others that I know personally, who do consciousness work are fine and at peace regardless of what is going on in their portfolio. Please remember that abundance is a state of mind and although one part of a portfolio may be less than usual at the moment, does not mean that we need to buy into the media hype of it all and lose sleep or peace of mind over it! (And if you are:  TURNING OFF THE TV and not reading the paper is a good place to start!) It is also amazing for me to see that here in my experience, we are on the brink of 3 elections before the end of November. We have a municipal election in Nanaimo and there is also a Canadian Federal Election.  Our American neighbours have a Federal Election too that will not only affect us, but very much the rest of the world as well.

I see the Universe asking us “OK you guys..One more time: WHAT is it that you really DO WANT and is it based in FEAR or LOVE?”

I love the Abraham quote that goes something like this “You don’t vote with those flawed ballot counters-You vote VIBRATIONALLY and EVERY vote is counted! Never in the history of your planet have we seen so many people wanting peace, but never have we seen so many out of vibrational harmony with the peace they want”

When we see what it is that we don’t want, we get clear about what we do want. If I see hunger or injustice, I want people to be fed and treated fairly. That shoots a desire into the ethers and when there are enough people there with me…we have a MANIFESTATION! That’s how matter is actually created. It all starts with an idea.

But how much time do we spend pushing against and focusing on what it is we are observing AND also on what it is that we don’t want? It seems that politicians do it all the time, when they put each other down. That in fact actually cancels out what they are trying to accomplish and renders them all powerless. So do we though. I have received quite a few emails from people bashing politicians of one party or another (especially some of the contenders in the US election) Many of you will remember that I too, was one of the biggest culprits of that just after 9/11. It was one of the most difficult things for me to come to terms with and I have to admit that sometimes I can still get a little jolt of satisfaction when one of them is exposed! I want to share with you though that I am now able to bless George Dubbya for the clarity he gave us – 8 years of what we don’t want.

When are we going to really get how important it is for us to keep our own vibrations high as much as possible? ESPECIALLY NOW!

“Nothing is more important than that I FEEL GOOD!”

 “How selfish!” some of you might say. But if I am in distress, I am of no good to anyone else, even as an up-lifter AND I am actually creating more of the same thing that I am pushing against. I am actually creating MORE of what it is that I do not want. Then, if I add some lower vibrational emotion to it, like FEAR or ANGER, it is like throwing rocket fuel on the creation! Poof-there it is-in my face.

It is really important during these times to keep our vibration high. Please see the Resource Page for a printable Emotional Guidance Scale from Abraham Hicks. Print it out and tack it up somewhere so that you can look at it often. The important thing to remember is “Where I am is just Where I AM!” Let’s not beat ourselves up for being in Worry or Blame or other lower vibrations. Just use some of the tools you have learned to reach for a better feeling thought. (My Emotion course is a good place to start) Going from Powerlessness to Enthusiasm is a large leap that we may not be able to accomplish all at once, but we do have the power to reach for some relief, even if it looks like Blame in the moment! (Not that we want to stay in Blame for long either, but in the moment, it sure helps to get our power back!

Something else worthwhile noting “Gratitude is a wonderful emotion but appreciation is ten times better. Gratitude almost always points you toward the thing you’ve overcome. Appreciation aligns you with the Source within you. They are very different vibrations.”  Abraham- San Rafael, CA, 03/03/2007

In other words, I may be GRATEFUL that I don’t have any money invested in the stock market or that I don’t smoke cigarettes any more, but if am actuality in appreciation for the many forms of prosperity I have and my healthy body, it is a much higher vibration. There are many things to appreciate. Even the small things are worthy to give our attention to in an appreciative manner. When we spend most of our day in appreciation, the disturbances going on around us have less ability to take us out of our joy. We may have the same stuff going on, but how we respond or react to them in the moment will be a lot smoother. From this place, it is easier to find ways to overcome any challenges that may come up.

“If you learn to live in appreciation, you will enter a domain, a vibration that will carry you through the chaos of these times. You will find a type of solace and comfort, and the vibrational rate of your energy body will increase. At some point you will reach what we call “escape velocity” You will easily step out of the illusions and the lies of the old world. You will see them for what they are, and you will become a joyous co-creator of a new world that is being birthed even as the old world passes away right before your eyes.” The Hathors through Tom Kenyon September 22, 2008 Orcas Island, WA

My old buddy Chief Seattle embodies the attitude of staying positive regardless of his external situation better than anyone. Indeed, he knows how to hold his attention on the end result as if it is already done and manifested. I would like to share his beautiful message here with you now…

“My brother, I tell you true. If all who see the Earth as being poisoned would, instead, give more attention to seeing the Earth clean and vibrant, then, very soon, your Earth would be cleansed.

If all who see their nation’s leaders as misguided or uncaring would, instead, give more time to seeing themselves being represented by responsible, caring leaders who stand firm for the highest good of all, then, very soon, you would have good leadership.

If all who see their spouses or family members as troublesome or unloving would, instead, give more thought to seeing their loved ones as the shining children of God that they are, then, very soon, all challenged relationships would be renewed and love rekindled.

If all who see themselves and others as sick or poor or weak of heart or undeserving would, instead, give more energy to seeing everyone as healthy, abundant, empowered, worthy, and lifted up, then, very soon, they would experience all of the good things that life has to offer.

If all who see themselves as a physical body and no more would, instead, give more thought to seeing themselves as an ever-brightening star that resides inside the body, then, very soon, everyone in your world would be shining their lights–just as all of the Elders who have walked your Earth have done. You would be living in peace, harmony, and comfort in a culture that you have created consciously, a culture which, by your divine right of birth, you deserve to enjoy.

Each challenge is there to guide you toward the desire of your heart

Each problem, seen from the positive side, always turns into a blessing

Each sorrow leads you to your joy

Each doubt–to your knowing

Each lack–to your abundance

Each debt–to your freedom

Each feeling of hopelessness–to your power

Each cry of pain–to your comfort

Each act of war–to your peace

Each act of anger–to your love

And each journey through darkness–into the light.”

 

Till next time…Peace and Plenty, Ev
