Please Don’t Eat The Daisies

We should give the common flower the chance to captivate us.”

…Unknown

You know you’re too busy when…there is not enough time in the day to sit in stillness. To give yourself a chance to reclaim your true nature. Not those times when you throw yourself into bed at night in pure exhaustion. But that special kind of silence, like the early morning tranquility before the rest of the world begins to stir in wakefulness.

To listen to the birds chirp their magical songs. And actually hear it. And enjoy it. Not brush it away like background noise. That kind of quiet when you lay on your back in the grass on a warm summer’s day and draw pictures in the sky with the clouds. Or, to inhale the fragrance of tomatoes growing in the garden, recalling the sweetness of biting into one you just plucked off the vine.

Those small, seemingly insignificant times are the verifiable, authentic, honest-to-goodness priceless moments we so casually whisk away.

It’s time. To impact change in every part of this planet. In every nook and cranny. Beginning with yourself.

Your very own life choices will increase as if by magic if you do this:

Those words that you so casually throw out to the people you come in contact with every day are, in fact, very powerful. Every word has power.

So, change your thought and speech patterns!  The time is now to make a difference because every thought you think and every word you say is vibrating out to the world. And, it is affecting every person in this world on some level. For, as you create your words, you create your (and our) destiny.

Once you comprehend that by speaking, thinking, and acting clearly with soaring, high-energy intent…by thinking coherent thoughts in a directed way…your thoughts will beam out like laser magic, and you can achieve great results!  Almost instantaneously!

You see, your sub-conscious mind acts only in the present moment. Even if you’re talking about someone else, your sub-conscious mind thinks you’re talking about yourself, because it only responds to the key words you use. Your very own self-worth may be less than what it could be because your sub-conscious mind accepts all your words as truth!

Let me give you an example. Words or phrases like “That’s not bad” changes to “That’s quite good.” Or, “No problem” changes to “You’re very welcome.” Or, “That’s bad” changes to “That’s not good.” Or, “I’m sick” becomes “I don’t feel well.”

Start switching your key words. Why? Because your inner mind does not process negative commands. “Do NOT think of a big grey hippo.” “Do NOT think of a big grey hippo in a pink tutu dancing on his toes.” What are you trying not to remember?

Your sub-conscious mind cannot process what is NOT. It simply responds to the words you have given it. I hear people all the time saying “No problem” when they really mean “You’re welcome” or, “It’s my pleasure.”

Just think what the sub-conscious mind actually hears. It doesn’t hear “no,” it just hears “problem.” So, switching your language gives you a brilliant solution for stopping non-productive inner self-talk.

When you actively, knowingly, switch on your inner self-talk, you can gain control of your life and your emotions. Your words are gifts that you give and receive. And, you have the ability today to make someone, including yourself, feel much better about life and themselves.

And, to slow down and take the time to inhale the scent of a common flower and give it a chance to let it captivate you.

Fear. What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing.

change-717488_640

change-717488_640“A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love.”

…Marianne Williamson

Easy to say. Not so easy to do.

Especially since we’ve been weened on fear since birth. It’s been part of our conditioning. A part of our limited thinking.

You know, things that were said to us as we were growing up like “Money doesn’t grow on trees you know” or, “You wait until your father gets home.” This limiting fear belief is unconscious and so it is difficult to recognize. And, you seldom question it because you are not even aware that it is a belief.

And, since fear keeps us forever revving our motor…constantly thinking about how fast we can solve this problem, or the warp-speed with which we can finish up that task, there is never any time for us to slow down or get out of the rat race.

This, of course ultimately takes its toll on us. In ways we haven’t been able to imagine until recently. Things like depression and mental health issues that have reached epidemic levels.

But, here’s something to ponder. “If you look underneath your depression, you’ll find anger. Look under your anger, and you’ll find sadness. And under sadness is the root of it all, what’s really masquerading all the while…fear.”

Well, this changes everything! And, I sense that there’s a part of ourselves that is longing to be born and it requires only our nourishing attention.

If we begin to understand that our emotions (like fear) create our body chemistry, then we can change how we feel, we won’t need drugs to keep us going, and best of all, we won’t be depressed.

So, we now have a new way to think. Look at it this way: We are no longer a machine made up of a body being pushed around by a brain, at the mercy of an electrical charge that keeps our hearts beating and our nerve impulses crackling.

No. We can now see ourselves as an intelligent system, one that involves a massive synchronized exchange of information between mind and body. Our cells are literally talking to each other, and our brain is in on the conversation!

As I said earlier….This changes everything! It means our true identity is very connected to our feelings and our emotions. This not only gives us a new self-concept but a new sense of integrity as well.

For, as we begin to realize that our body has wisdom, this calls for a new kind of responsibility on our part. We can no longer act like a dumb machine and wait to be fixed by a mechanic (also known as a doctor). Now we must consciously take an active role in our own healing.

We no longer need to go around promoting how happy we are when we don’t really feel that way. No longer do we need to keep our feelings hidden, for fear others will be indifferent to our sorrows or anger.

It is this problem of bruised and broken emotions that most of us stagger under without ever saying a word. NOT. ANYMORE.

Here’s why.

Feelings represent a tremendous amount of concentrated information. And the clearer and stronger the feelings, the more knowledge of the Universe it contains.

In the end, it is our feelings that are able to scan all the information from our outside environment. It is through feelings, not through our mind or intellect that we are able to perceive the truth.

Think of it as a reset for the mind and the body. This is the new thinking that is required to help move us into the “new normal” we are now living in. How cool is that?!!

How To Act Our Way Into a New Way of Thinking

“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes; that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”

…Paramahansa Yogananda

Once upon a time…there was a time in our lives where we were very high in our awareness compared to where we are now. Then, this “fall” took place and we lost it. Even lost our ability to make fire.

There is a lot of talk these days of raising our vibration. Of the need to ascend from third dimension to fifth dimension. What exactly does this mean? What do we need to do? How do we do it?

We were heart-based a long time ago and we lost it. The connection between the heart and the brain was severed and we ended up living in our brain. This is not the true nature of human consciousness.

In order to survive we had to learn how to do everything. We used our brains and developed an ego in order to survive.  And, that’s great. It got us to this point. But, we are now living in a world that is at odds with everything.

So, our brains alone can no longer sustain us as we transition into this new world.

We are currently under the control or psychic influence of a world that is designed to sabotage us, to keep us from feeling happy and enjoying life and being glad to be alive.

We must take responsibility for the bad stuff that’s happening. It is a responsibility of our human experience.  So, how do we learn to raise our vibration in the midst of all this chaos? And, why is this so important?

First let me say that fifth dimension is not a place that you will be going to, but rather a state of beingness that you will attain. It’s moving to another level of existence. It’s simply a movement within us. It’s not something that is external to us.

The fifth dimension is a vibration, or rather a marriage of vibrations that are represented in the energies of love, trust, compassion, faith, grace and gratitude, representing a frequency in its purest form.

What raising our vibration really means is reconnecting the heart back to the brain. We make a change and we begin to perceive on another frequency of reality…and suddenly we’re in another world.

I believe that in our hearts we know this Truth although our minds still struggle to grasp the full scope of this reality. Our minds still demand ritual and rules, and proof, before we will step one foot upon this new path.

So, our work is to bring ourselves back to the frequency of faith and trust, NOT doubt and denial. This will help us to remember our True Self. We must ACT our way into a new way of thinking instead of thinking our way into a new way of acting.

That is where we must start.

The importance? It’s HUGE. The evolution of humanity depends on it. In truth, that is why we are here. The answers that we seek reside within us. It begins with us. Each one of us.

Can you begin to see that as we work on moving into our true identity, it’s that vibration that starts to resonate throughout the world…it’s that vibration that will change the flow of history!

In fact, “WE ARE THE ONES WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!”

A Lesson in Letting Go…and Community

“Make like a tree and let the dead leaves drop.”

…Rumi

In the dead of winter there is this temptation to  cocoon or numb our senses until the bumblebees and the butterflies and the flowers come back to us in the spring. But, each season holds its own treasures waiting to be unlocked by those who are awake.

Nature doles out its treasures, its wisdom if only we participate. We can grasp deep understandings of the cycles of our Mother Earth.

Something that I’ve personally been beginning to learn when I walk in the cold and the silence is that feeling of exhilarating peace. And joy. And, I slowly, I have begun to shed what is not needed…I drop those dead leaves.

What limiting beliefs, habits, or relationships are you perhaps holding on to that no longer serve you?

Those majestic Maples, willowy Birches, stately Oak trees, and the like have no trouble letting go of everything each year. They have an understanding on a deep level that new leaves will return when the time is right.

And, the really wonderful thing is that nature uses all those dead leaves to fertilize the ground around those very trees that dropped them. So…in the spring they become strengthened once again.

And, I just recently came across this wonderful short story written by a friend that I’d like to share with you…It’s about a Birch Forest…

It occurs to me that we are a lot like birches…

Birches often grow very close together. They actually prefer it. Birch trees don’t do nearly as well alone as they do together. Truth be told, they don’t really do a good job of putting down roots. What that means is that they don’t grow to be all that old…not in tree years anyway.

A Maple will live to a ripe old age of 150. An Elm, up to 200. The stately Oak will tower over us in acorned glory for up to 450 years if allowed.

Not so the beautiful but fragile Birch. If it makes 100 it is a VERY old tree. Without a good root system things just don’t survive. Something that big needs sustenance and stability. It needs something that will keep it secured and strong in the famine and the storms of life. Sound familiar at all?

Because Birches don’t do well with roots they rely heavily on the closeness of their fellow tree folk. What they may lack in the ability to grow roots, they make up for in their well-grounded desire for ‘community.’ You will often find them leaning into each other and growing around each other with branches intertwined. Birches need each other…and they seem to know it. Sound familiar at all?

So, wherever you find yourself during this Winter season…whatever sustenance is needed, whatever storms are raging…take time to remember. Remember your roots and revel in your community!

~ Brent Helwig

And the wind said:  “May you be as strong as the Oak, yet flexible as the Birch. May you stand tall as the Redwood, live gracefully as the Willow, and may peace and prosperity surround you all of your days.”

What Really Matters

New beginnings are exciting! They’re also a little scary.

While we’ve been busy chasing that elusive thing we call money, our planet has been actively re-balancing herself in order to aid us…the collective humanity, shift into a New World. A better world.

We have been moving into this new awareness as our own bodies have been re-calibrating in order to accommodate this new frequency vibration. Have you noticed low energy, or headaches, or any dizziness recently? These may be signs that your body is re-balancing itself. And the pace is quickening.

I can guarantee that all of us are facing personal challenges at this time. It may be health issues, relationship challenges, or finding a sound spiritual grounding. A lot is going on.

If you are sensing that the world is literally on the edge of huge change, then no wonder you are reading this! You are right on point.

This year your mind will process thousands of emails, Facebook posts, Tweets, Pinterest, Instagram, phone calls, TV shows, personal conversations and more. All this information is like candy for your brain. And, when it needs its fix, this “pain-body” will pester away at you until you feed it.

All this constant “distraction” is the food it needs to replenish itself. It eagerly devours every distracted thought. And, all this does is take your awareness to your outside environment when your journey here in life is to go inside and find Truth.

Hey I get it. My family knows only too well how thin I spread myself sometimes. That’s why I need to block out sections of my day to shut out all that noise and distraction and do my inner work. To get beyond and return to that inner sacred sanctuary where I meet up with blissful silence, peace, and fulfillment.

As our Mother Earth transitions into the new higher frequency, we come to realize that this is our next step in the evolution of humanity. Remember, whether we consciously know this or not, we chose to be here at this most critical juncture in the history of mankind.

Now is the time to find your own Personal Power. Once we see the true bigger picture of who we are and what we’re here for, everything gets reset and we start on a brand new path in life.

How do we put our best foot forward in 2016? What is the most productive and effective course of action in our personal lives?

What If…

rocket-launch-67646_640

“Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rage at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

…Dylan Thomas as quoted by Professor Brand.

I was travelling this past week and, while on route, I watched a movie. It was not a typical movie that I would be attracted to, but one that was recommended to me by someone I have grown to have a deep respect for. So I pressed the “Play” button and sat back to watch. Never expecting to be blown away. Never expecting to be taken to a new level of thinking while I watched.

The pilot had said, “Sit back. Relax. Enjoy the flight.” And, so like a spectator, along for the ride, I did just that.

But, this was one of those movies that as you got deeper and deeper into it, you knew intuitively that it was special.  You knew, watching this that it was no longer okay to be lulled into false sense of calm, to be a bystander, an onlooker.

Funny isn’t it, how different it is when you are the driver, choosing your own route, and taking ownership for whatever happens?

So, how do you become the driver in a way that doesn’t cause fear and a sense of doom to all those who are on the road with you? How do you do it in a way that has you slamming on the brakes and skidding to a stop shouting “Wow, what a ride!”

Check out the new level of thinking I discovered Here…

We are all artists whether we like it or not. For some, this takes the form of math or science, or law; for others, it’s photography or teaching, or scuba diving. But, we each have our own studio. And, we can leave it dark and empty, or we can bring it to life.

WHAT IF, as we’re driving along this highway of life, we threw out the window all that stuff that has kept us prisoners of our own minds? Those places where the mind is absolutely sure that things are what they’re made out to be? 

WHAT IF the next time you read something, or saw a video that seemed to be way too out there to be true, you stopped yourself when your mind started thinking, “That’s ridiculous.” Or, “Conspiracy theory.” And, listening with your heart, you said to yourself instead, “WHAT IF?”

It will open up a whole new level of thinking for you. And, it’s that kind of thinking that is desperately needed in this world today. That heart thinking. Instead of the old race track of thinking… looping and speeding around and around but going nowhere.

You see, our planet is situated in a place Between. The. Stars.  With unlimited possibilities. Like the movie, there is powerful energy out there just waiting for us. YOU are in the driver’s seat.

WHAT IF the only keys you need to start the engine is LOVE?

WHAT IF…

Why Being Outside Your Comfort Zone is Awesome for You

lion-617566_640

 “The TRUTH is like a LION. You don’t have to defend it. Let it LOOSE. It will defend itself.”
…St. Augustine

I’ve been guilty of defending TRUTH. When you gain knowledge of some things that you know, that you know, that you know to be the TRUTH, you become eager for those that you love, for those that you care about, to access that knowledge too.

There is a saying that “there are none so blind as those who will not see.”

But, we have ALL grown up conditioned by corruption, greed, and power. To feel powerless. To believe that there is nothing we, as only ONE person can do. We’ve had years and years of teachings of powerlessness, which have kept us in the dark about how our world, and how the universe REALLY works.

If you feel you are ready to hear the truth…Read on. Here’s the secret, and it’s been a HUGE, SUCCESSFUL secret, that’s been hidden from us…It is this…

The real problem of our years of conditioning is one of “energy usage.” And, the secret of how it’s been used against us has been brought to us through Main Stream Media. That’s right. Every day. Coming at us from our own TV’s.

We must begin to think of our energy usage as OUR VALUE. We need to become misers with our own energy. Spend it only on THAT WHICH WILL SET YOU FREE.

We don’t need to starve ourselves of energy in order to do this. Rather, we need to become much more aware of how we SPEND our energy and start to pull back from activities that we normally engage in like watching TV because that is THE SYSTEM THAT WAS SET UP TO ENSLAVE US ALL.  It is a prison.

We simply need to correct where we SPEND our energy. Realize that  reality is collectively created by us ALL.

Know that war, for example, can only continue if enough people in the world think it is NECESSARY

Can you see that what takes place on our planet and what is ALLOWED to take place here is based on the belief and conviction of the people who live inside this reality?  That’s us! Can you see therefore, that war can only occur if enough people think it is necessary?

That is what the real purpose of the MEDIA is…

It is to tell us why we need to believe a war is necessary! It is done by telling you step by step exactly how and why you need to FORM AN OPINION about a certain issue in a certain way so that you can come to a predetermined conclusion about what they want.

You’ve been TAUGHT all of your life…by others…who were in truth lying to you, that you have no POWER, and that your opinion does not count!

Your opinion counts more than you will ever know!

You see, you are a single cell living in a much larger body called humanity. Those thoughts and beliefs that you hold to be true will have an affect upon the entire body of humanity whether you are aware of it or not.

And if enough cells of this body of humanity hold a certain belief, then it will override the other cells and become the predominant thought form or, the predominant WILL of the entire group.

Do you see how important it is to understand this? That is why you need to FLEE YOUR COMFORT ZONE. Now is not soon enough. It is a prison. You will never know the POWER you have until you start to use it. To know that you are a powerful creator being.

Yes indeed. The way to defeat this is to STARVE it. Remove your consent from it. Start spending your energy to increase YOUR VALUE. In ways that make a difference to this planet. To humanity.

YOU ARE THAT POWERFUL!

How Million Dollar Moments Work

Snow ball

“Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.”
…Veronica Roth,
Author of Divergent

Today I want to laugh. It’s good medicine. It ignites serotonin in your brain…you know, that stuff…those neurotransmitters that nourish us with feelings of bliss.

So, today I started a project. It’s called “The Million Dollar Moments Project” and here’s how it works:

When you experience a moment in your day that makes you stop. A moment when you smile and think to yourself  “This is why the sun is shining today.” Or, a moment when you’re overcome because of some random act of kindness that you witnessed. Or, a moment  bringing to your awareness that this really is “A Wonderful World,”  I want you to do something.

It could be a large momentous moment. It could be a simple quiet moment. But, it is a moment in your day that makes you pause. A moment that takes your breath away. A Million Dollar Moment.

And, then here’s what I want you to do: Write me and share with me your amazing “Million Dollar Moment” story. Courageous moments, kind moments, optimistic moments, proud moments,  bittersweet moments, loving moments. We all have transformational moments in our life that changed the path we were on. They all count.

That’s it. And, for every “Million Dollar Moment” story you share with me, I will ship to you a copy of my own “Million Dollar Moments” book for F.REE!  No strings attached. No shipping charges. Nothing. Just a gift from my heart to yours.

So, let’s start a snowball. (Hey, it’s winter here in Canada eh. And, we all live in Igloos!) That snowball is at the top of the mountain now. Let’s watch how big it gets by rolling down the hill. One Million Dollar Moment at a time.

We Are Not Your Sheeple

sheeple

We have been referred to as “sheeple” by the infamous one percent. I resent that. I resent that my mind has been manipulated and controlled by this elitist group. In everything I do. Everywhere.

As we are awakening to a much larger plan for earth, these are the wildest, most intense times we’ve ever been in. Yet, if you look around everything looks EXACTLY THE SAME. You look out the window, you go for a walk, you smell the air…all the same.

There have been no large catastrophic events to speak of yet, but personally, it seems that everybody I know on a personal level is experiencing some kind of difficulty, or pain, or initiation, or depression, or anger, or FEAR.

The fact of the matter is that thanks to the internet, the truth is trickling in. People who once dismissed what they took to be outrageous statements are now going back to take a second look.

Recognizing some of the things that are going on in this world has not been easy. I followed my interests and my instincts and have studied many subjects from financial, to environmental, to spiritual. I gained a grasp of what was going on. I was not easy on me. I was laughed at and ridiculed.

However, when I read these articles on the false stories that have been foisted upon us, the general public, I felt a physical pain in my heart. I had a hard time breathing and I jumped up from where I had been sitting and started to pace. I broke down. I was having an Einstein moment…you know the one where “there comes a time when your mind takes on a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.”

What I realize now was happening was that my world view, my understanding of government as being my protector was crushed. It felt like I had been hurled out onto the streets to fend for myself.

The first thing I did was I cried and I sobbed. And, then at some point I resigned myself in knowing that this thing was bigger than me and that I would have to take an pro-active role in educating other people about this.

Me. Who spent most of my life just trying to blend in was now being challenged to shine this light. I would have to risk that nice, comfortable way of being and exchange it for the chance of being called a flake, a conspiracy theorist, or worse, an utter whack job!

But I also knew that in order for me to maintain any sense of integrity, I couldn’t just let something like this go. And, so through all of this I have learned to trust myself. I trust myself now.

We, as citizens of this New Earth, we all need to take on the responsibility of learning and grasping this information for ourselves. But, what happens to most people when confronted by challenging new information is, they seek to preserve their current understanding of the world by rejecting, explaining away, or avoiding the new information. They convince themselves that no conflict really exists.

Epic change is upon us. We all know the “norms” for external living. We now need to get right with our own internal spirit and form a strong inner code for ourselves.

We’re all working through this collective consciousness uprising in our own ways. We are creating this New Earth from the inside out. We are the ones who must keep things transparent and honest for “truth is the only safe ground to stand on.”
