Mind-Body Healing and Your Abundant Health

What is Abundant Health?

Having abundant health means having health in great quantity or, being very healthy. Is that not what we all want for ourselves? I am sure there are those that don’t, and I believe it is caused by a craving for attention, and subconsciously believing illness and disease are the only way to get this attention.

The next few blogs will be dedicated to mind-body healing. There is just too much information and too many cases to fit on one!

I believe we all can positively affect our health if we can place our focus on our thoughts, feelings and attitudes. The mind-body connection is so much stronger than most will believe. Although I am not the picture of health YET, I do believe my thoughts, feelings and attitudes have affected my health, first negatively, and then positively. This is my story.

Psychosomatic Illness

While growing up, I had a great-aunt who was constantly getting ill, claiming health issues of one sort or another. The adults would always talk about how she would seem to contract almost anything a friend, or friend’s friend or just about anyone she heard/read about had contracted.

They would shake their head and talk about her psychosomatic illnesses. Today, through studies, many scientists and doctors are finding that a lot of illnesses and diseases are psychosomatic. A psychosomatic disorder is a disease which involves both mind and body (http://www.patient.co.uk/health/psychosomatic-disorders).

I was always told I was so much like my mother. I was thrilled with this as I adored her and hoped to be just like she was when I grew up.

And, as I grew up, I watched her suffer through one health crisis after another. She was mentally strong in ways; but in others, not so much. She carried so much inner turmoil and emotional burden on her shoulders, unable to detach her feeling and emotions from what an alcoholic husband, unloving and judgmental mother-in-law and inconsiderate, selfish children put on her.

As an Adult

From my mid 20’s, I didn’t take care of myself, ate all the wrong foods, drank too much, smoked like a chimney, and, until my mid 30’s took more than my fair share of recreational drugs. As I reached my 40’s, I was a very good candidate for an early death with illness and disease accompanying me all the way.

Late 40's

Late 40’s

I began to have one health issue after another into my mid 50’s. These health issues didn’t mimic those of my mother though. While her illnesses were internalized, my mind chose a whole new route. Instead of internal organs, most of mine were muscular-skeletal with a few odd glandular issues here and there. The list just kept growing and growing, and I was approved for disability as of May, 2010 at the ripe old age of 54.

The “AHA” Moment

With all of the self-help and spiritual books I’d read, I finally stumbled upon information regarding the mind-body connection. I was amazed, when I thought back on my mom’s life and health issues, how much her mental and emotional condition could have, and did, affect the health of her body.

I then took a long hard look at my own emotional and mental state, along with my physical health. I could see the correlation between the most stressful and painful times of my life and the onslaught of illness and disease. By then, I had been diagnosed with multiple illnesses, diseases and syndromes. I was taking 11-15 medications, depending on what was going on with my body.

Today

Today

So, through meditation, hypnosis and creative visualization, I eventually learned to pay better attention to my thoughts, feelings and emotions. I have been able to decrease my medications down to 2-3 and plan on being dependent on none by summer of 2015. I feel better than I have in years, have more energy and sleep through the night.

To many, this may not seem like much; but, it wasn’t long ago I didn’t believe I would make it to my 65th birthday.  Today, I’m looking forward to abundant health for the rest of my long life.  I believe my before and after pictures tell the story

Please Read On…

The next 2 or 3 posts will be dedicated to sharing information of studies regarding mind-body interaction and stories of others who had drastic improvements in their health through changing the health of their thoughts and feelings. Some would call a couple of these miraculous.

Have you or anyone you know experienced amazing improvements in health without the use of surgery or medications? I would love to hear from you.

To Your Abundance,
Margot

Protection From Negativity For An Intuitive Abundant Woman

Many experts claim that intuitive people are also psychic, to a degree – using that 6th sense to know things or make decisions. As such, many intuitive people can also be susceptible to energies from other sources, such as other people.

A NEGATIVE ENERGY ENDURED

I have had an issue for years when it came to being affected by and absorbing the energies of other people. In fact, the worst case for me was a very close relative. It took me years to understand why, after spending time in his presence, I would become upset, confused, frustrated and even negative myself. It would take a very long time for me to return to my normal, more positive self.

Negative Energy

Negative Energy

After our last confrontation, in which he treated me worse than his poor dog he kept chained to a tree and would not explain his reason, I realized I needed to stay away from him, but didn’t really understand why. I just knew I felt better when I wasn’t around him. It took me quite awhile to also realize I needed to forgive him for his extremely negative actions, as my anger and frustration were eating away at my soul. I was losing any spiritual abundance I had. It was affecting my meditations, peaceful mind and heart, and even other relationships.

REALIZING THE PROBLEM & FINDING SOLUTIONS

It wasn’t until just a few months back, after doing research on intuitives, psychics, empaths and sensitives, that I was able to realize what the real issue was that was happening. I was absorbing his negative energy and it was severely affecting me. Then my real research began on how to protect myself from these energies, because they could also affect me from a distance.

Do you:

  • sometimes walk into a room and feel a bad “vibe” or feel exhausted in a crowd?
  • feel easily hurt at times?
  • get told by people that you’re too sensitive?
  • avoid conscious recognition of the emotional basis of an act or feeling by substituting a superficially plausible explanation?
  • sense negative emotions evoked by other people and sometimes don’t know if it’s coming from them or you?
  • get nervous and agitated around hyperactive people?
  • need to be alone to re-energize?
  • feel, at times, as if you’ve lost your own identity or are suffocating in an intimate relationship?
  • listen well to others and give generously of yourself?

If so, in all likelihood, you are an intuitive, empath, sensitive or psychic, and need to know how to protect yourself in order to continue your positive journey toward a life as an abundant woman.

TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

Here are a few tips, which I have found helpful, on how to protect yourself from negativity.

Keep at least 20 to 30 feet away from any negative person, called an “emotional vampire” by Dr. Judith Orloff. (Judith Orloff, MD, Are you an empath?, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/judith-orloff-md/are-you-an-emotional-empa_b_697483.html). Don’t be concerned if you feel you may be offending someone. This is for your emotional and psychic protection. Dr. Judith Orloff has some amazing programs, books and online courses on intuition, positive energy and empowerment!Positive Energy & Emotional Freedom

Clean negativity from you. Brush your head, arms and body with your hands as if wiping off dirt or dust. Put your hands on your solar plexus (your emotional center). Imagine a clean white light emanating from your hands into your solar plexus to clean out any negativity that may have found its way in.

Envelope yourself in a protective shield when around suspect people. Visualize your body being enveloped in a white light that blocks the negativity but allows positive energy to be absorbed.

Center yourself with deep breaths. As you breathe in, feel positive, calming energy entering into your lungs. As you breathe out, see the negative energy leaving your body as a dark mist or fog.

Manage your emotions. Have a safe, private and natural space in your home where you can go for meditation and centering to rejuvenate, especially if there are family members in the home whose emotions you have been absorbing.

Spend time with positive people. Encourage and cultivate friendships with people who have positive energies. Spending time with these people can help you strengthen your own positive energies, which will help negate any negative energies you find yourself absorbing.

These exercises are not something that will alleviate your issues with negative energy right away. They must be practiced on a regular basis for you to strengthen your own energies and protection.

So, as they say, practice makes perfect. Be sure to check out Dr. Judith Orloff’s programs, books and online courses. They are fascinating, uplifting and so very helpful! I wish you the best in your endeavors and would love to hear from you with any other tips or helpful practices you use to keep your energies positive and your soul happy!

How to Access Your Intuition as An Abundant Woman

In my previous post, I talked about intuition, what it is and the importance of paying attention to it. Today, I’d like to delve further into its application, importance and how to readily access your intuition.

Ignoring Your Intuition

As we were all raised to use our logical mind to make decision in all facets of our lives, we began to ignore our intuition just as we began reaching the times in our lives when we needed it the most – making life decisions.

Your intuition is working more often than you realize. Having ignored our natural intuition for so long, many of us now find it difficult to access or even recognize or be aware of it.

Awareness

Awareness

We all were born with some amount of intuition. Abundant intuition is either innate or can be developed. For those of us needing assistance accessing our intuition, with it having been buried under logic, preconceptions and conscious beliefs for so long, we can learn again how to recognize and use it.

The Subconscious

The subconscious handles three main aspects of your life:

1. It controls all automatic bodily functions – heart, breathing, digestion and so many more than I am able to list. You get the idea, I’m sure.

2. All thoughts and beliefs accepted by the subconscious issue a vibration which attracts people and situations that vibrate at the same frequency.

3. Being a part of life and all reality, it has access to information not readily available to your conscious mind, and this is where intuition comes in.

Intuition, being a function of the subconscious mind, works for everyone, and is accessible by everyone.

Heart intuition

Heart intuition

Three Ways to Access Your Intuition

Some of the ways to access your intuition are:

Meditation:

Engaging in contemplation, thought, musing, reflection, focus and concentration on a repetitive act such as breathing or using a mantra (a word or sound repeated). By using the typical meditation and going within, you can soon find this inner self – the subconscious that, if listened to, will bring you to the awareness you are not limited to the aspects of your conscious mind, and the eternal senses, and can access all the information within your subconscious.

Card Exercise:

1. Pull the jokers out of a deck of cards and shuffle
2. Flip through them very quickly, looking at the faces
3. Lay them out, face down, in rows of 13
4. Think of one of the cards, your subconscious should know its location
5. After thinking of the card for a few seconds, clear your mind
6. Turn over a card which you feel drawn to
7. If it is the card you were thinking of, your intuition is strong. If it isn’t, don’t worry. Put it back and try for another card.
8. Record your results.

How many attempts did it take to find the card? Do this exercise 5-10 minutes/day. You will soon see your ability to pick the correct card happen faster, and as with anything, practice makes perfect…or as close as possible.

The Silva Intuition System 3-2-1 Intuitive Meditation:

1. After getting comfortable and closing eyes, take a deep breath and as you exhale, think and envision the number 3, a few times. As you do this, relax each part of your head, scalp, forehead, face (a light smile always relaxes your face), jaw and chin, your throat (internally and externally), relax your chest (internally and externally), shoulders, arms, hands and fingers. Relax your abdomen (internally and externally). Relax your hips, thighs, knees, calves, feet and toes. You should be at a deeper level of relaxation at this point.

2. The next level, level 2 is for mental relaxation – take a deep breath and as you exhale, think and envision the number 2, a few times. This level is a mental relaxation level where noises do not distract you. Instead, noises help you to relax deeply more and morel To improve relaxation at level 2, practice visualizing tranquil and passive scenes.

3. The last level, level 1 – take another deep breath and as you exhale, think and envision the number 1, 3 times. Level 1 is a plane level to be used for any purpose you desire. This is your starting point.

4. From here, count slowly from 10 to 1 and as you descend, feel yourself entering a deeper, healthier level of mind.

5. Imagine descending as if in an elevator from the 10th to the 1st floor. Allow the feeling of relaxation from the top of your body down to your toes.

The purpose of this exercise is to enhance your intuition. You can find the rest if this excellent meditation method at The Silva Intuition System.

Best wishes for your most relaxing intuition meditation. After practicing this meditation, I hope you will get back with me and let me know how much it helped you achieve a better state of intuition.

Using Intuition On Your Journey Toward An Abundant Life

Intuition, the ability to acquire knowledge without the use of reason, comes from the Latin verb intueri, which means to look inside or to contemplate. Intuition is believed to be a kind of inner perception, sometimes regarded as true understanding. It provides views, judgments or beliefs that we cannot verify in every case based on observation or experience, or rationally justify.

What Your Spirit Knows

Your spirit knows what’s right for you, what directions you need to take for your highest good. Although your intellectual mind is a great tool, when it comes to the key decisions of your life, it pales in comparison to the wisdom of your intuition.

Einstein intuition

Einstein intuition

Your intuition is constantly feeding you information about people or situations, or providing answers to the questions you are asking. Have you ever had a “gut” feeling and not listened, and later wished that you had? Intuitive information comes to us generally as a feeling rather than logical thought when the chatter in our minds has quieted. All you need to do is tap into it. It isn’t as difficult as you may think, whether you believe yourself to be intuitive or not.

Learn To Tap Into Your Powerful Intuition

Imagine being so powerfully intuitive that you’ll never second-guess yourself ever again. Imagine how that affects your career – when you’re always making the right business decisions, and choosing the most trustworthy partners. Imagine being able to tune in to exactly what your partner is feeling, and how that brings the two of you even closer. Imagine being able to rely on a strong “inner voice” that gives you confident ideas and answers to help you overcome any challenge.

All of this isn’t just reserved for the lucky few who were blessed with good fortune.  The Silva Intuition System helps to discover the power of intuition and unleash an entirely new realm of possibilities for career, relationships and health.

Over 6 million graduates, including scientists, doctors, artists and entrepreneurs have used The Silva Method to experience the full extent of their intuitive senses and live a life beyond ordinary.

An Abundant Woman’s Tale – You CAN Create Abundance!

This is a true story of one woman’s experience, I’ll call her Milly, on attracting and manifesting abundance into her family’s life. I still get a huge smile on my face when I think of how it all came about.

Milly has been involved in spirituality and the Law of Attraction since quite awhile before the hit movie “The Secret” was released. She just didn’t understand how it all fit together, or whether it even did fit.

The Secret

The Secret

It was after she watched the movie, along with quite a few videos recorded shortly after the movie, and read a few books, both new and old, on the subject; that she finally felt she had a grasp on how the Law of Attraction worked. She began to notice incidences and coincidences around her that were obvious examples of the Law of Attraction at work.

Although she knew it worked, she couldn’t seem to figure out what she was or wasn’t doing that kept her wishes and intentions from manifesting. She made a vision board as advised in the movie, along with writing her wishes and intentions, visualizing them and then letting them go so as not to become attached to them.  She worked hard to overcome limiting beliefs, became and stayed grateful for what she had, opened herself to receiving graciously…and still nothing.

Learn More and Apply

She took classes and courses, read books and watched videos on the Law of Attraction, hypnotism, meditation, visualization, the power of prayer and life coaching. As time went on, the literature, videos and training on these aspects became more refined and specialized.

Milly finally began to manifest small things into her life….a parking space close to the door of the store, a specific hotel room when going on vacation, a sale on a specific item for which she wouldn’t pay full retail. She came across a book last November, “E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality” by Pam Grout. She didn’t start reading it until 3 0r 4 months after the holidays.

The book consisted of 9 different experiments to try for noticing, attracting and manifesting people, items, events and money. They started out small and became larger and more complex as the experiments progressed. She went through some the experiments, and actually had success with each experiment performed. After about 4, she decided she was going to try to manifest some money herself.

Writing Your Intention

She sat down and wrote out what she wanted to attract     and manifest, “I am so happy and grateful that we have an additional $x,000 income this year.” As she had been working on a website, wanting to earn some extra money for her family by helping others, which was her passion; she hoped that she would be earning that amount of money by the end of 12 months.

Write intention

Write intention

After writing down her affirmation, she let it go, keeping no attachment to it, as she had learned when taking the courses on the Law of Attraction. And so, a few months passed with nothing really happening on her website. She continued working on it, taking more courses and began building her clientele, with more money going out than coming in at that point.

While all this was going on with her courses and website, things were happening at her husband’s company. I’ll call him Bob. The management had decided to create a new position and asked Bob if he would be interested in a promotion into this position. Although he was the person who told them they really needed to create this position, he had also initially told them he wasn’t interested, thinking he would be getting more headaches than he already had.

From Whence it Comes

Well, the company created the position and asked Bob to apply for it; which, after some deep thought and soul searching, he did. When they offered him the job, they told him he would be getting a raise of $x,000, which was the exact amount she had written in her manifestation intention.

Money

Money

What I find funny is it took a month before Milly realized Bob’s raise was the same amount she had written. On the day she finally realized what had happened, she was watching a short video on the Law of Attraction and manifesting. She was almost finished with the video when she finally realized the manifestation intention she had written a few months before had happened!

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, you might find it funny to know that my husband and I are Bob and Milly. And that is how I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that you CAN attract and create abundance!

Attaining an Attitude of Abundance and Affluence

A Word On The Woowoo

What I’m about to discuss now may seem a bit metaphysical, and I suppose it is to anyone not acquainted with these practices. I only ask that you keep an open mind as we go through these.

I’m going to list three different practices you can use to attract affluence and abundance into your life. These don’t follow the norm of what you may have heard when it comes to the Law of Attraction. They were shared by Bert Goldman, the American Monk, who also introduced Quantum Jumping, which I’ll explain in another post.

1. – Awareness of Your Actions

Awareness

Awareness

In the evening, just prior to going to bed, go over the events of the day. Ask yourself what you did that day that you would rather have done differently. What did you do that day that was wrong?  What did you do that you could have done better?

Going over these events, you may find that there were quite a few things that you could have done better, differently; possibly as many as ten to twenty or more. By doing this, you become more aware of yourself, of the things that other people see in you that perhaps you don’t see when you look in the mirror. Do this for a week or two.

Self Sabotage & Limiting Factors

What does this have to do with attaining an attitude of abundance? It all has to do with self sabotage, which I’ve spoken of in a previous post. When you do something that is wrong, or not to the best of your ability, there is a little measure of guilt that comes in.

You may feel you want to repeat the act correctly, or as it should have been done; but, if you don’t admit you’ve done anything wrong, then there’s nothing to repeat. In other words, it festers in your inner conscience. It chews away and causes a great deal of limiting factors in your life.

When you feel you’re limited in some aspect of your life, then you feel you only deserve so much. For example if you feel limited in relationships, then you feel you only deserve so many friends and these friendships will only be so fulfilling.

If you feel limited in wealth, then you only feel you deserve to be in a certain income bracket. If you make more than what you feel you deserve, it somehow gets lost or squandered until you’re back in the area of income in which you are comfortable or feel you deserve to be.

Keep Up the Practice

Limitations cause people so many problems in the areas of health, wealth, relationships and a myriad of other aspects of life. After you have been using this self awareness practice awhile, you’ll get to a point where it will be a few days when there isn’t anything you would have done differently or better. When you get to this point, then you’re ready for the next step to attaining an attitude of abundance.

2. – Activating Your Internal Electromagnet

This is a simple process. You tense your shoulders, neck and head slightly; then, just close your eyes.  Keep everything from the shoulders up slightly tensed, almost to the point you can feel yourself quivering.  As I said, it’s a simple process.

Attracting Abundance With Electromagnetism

Once you’ve activated your electromagnet, you are able to begin attracting the abundance you want into your life. With your eyes still closed and your electromagnet still activated, visualize what it is you are wanting to attract for a few minutes; then, just let it loose. Do this a few times a day.

3. – The Rhythm of Abundance

Rhythm

Rhythm

Every aspect of life has its own flow or rhythm, and abundance is no different. Here is an example of what I mean. There’s the story you hear about wealth or poverty consciousness. You give a million dollars to a person with a poverty consciousness; and, within a year, that person will not have any of the money left.

Adversely, If you take a million dollars away from a person with a wealth consciousness, that person will have gotten that money back within a year or so.  A person with a wealth or poverty consciousness has a certain energy or rhythm to their consciousness.

Learning Your Rhythms

One way of finding your rhythms is with the thought of food. First, think of a food you really enjoy. Begin tapping a rhythm with your hand, whatever feels right, on your chest, your thigh, the table. Become aware of this rhythm. Next, think of a food that you really do not like at all. Tap a rhythm while thinking of that food. You’ll probably find that the rhythm is slower when tapping on what you dislike.

Another way, and one that you will probably appreciate more for the use you want, is to tap your rhythm while remembering a time when you had a lot of money, even if it was just for a day or so, or when you really felt affluent. Also, learn your rhythm for when you didn’t have any money or abundance of what it is you are wanting.

Once you have these rhythms established, make a practice each morning of tapping your rhythm for abundance for about 30 to 60 seconds. You can do this more than once a day; but, you should refrain doing so before bedtime since your sleeping state is yet another rhythm.

A Message For the Skeptic

skeptic woman

skeptic woman

Even if you are skeptical, give these practices a try. Do them for a few weeks and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised. When you stop and think about it, what do you have to lose? After a few weeks, ask yourself….does it work? If it does, then you’ve found new ways to attract affluence and abundance!

Journaling to Overcome Self Limiting Beliefs

Identifying Self Limiting Beliefs

In my previous post “Sabotage of the Subconscious Mind of an Abundant Woman”, I discussed some of the self limiting beliefs we have all accumulated throughout our lives… I’m inadequate, I’m worthless, I’m defective, I’m unattractive, I’m a loser, I’m a failure.  And those are but a few that we have become buried in our psyches.  The trick is to really pay attention to your thoughts and feelings throughout your day.

Limiting beliefs are very powerful. You’ve had them, thought them, felt them for years.  From the time you first experience life, you are inundated with the self limiting beliefs of your parents, grandparents, extended family and friends, your culture and religion.  The more you think of them, the more  energy you give them. The more energy you give them, the more they hold you back from having the abundant, joyful life you deserve.

Your beliefs become your reality.  You will always find evidence to support your beliefs, and to have them become your reality.Your feelings are the perfect tool for identifying these self limiting beliefs you may not even realize you have.  You need to be sure to check in with yourself, ask yourself what you are feeling and why.  Don’t fight the feelings, but observe them.  Any negative feelings you are having lead back to self limiting beliefs.

Understanding Limiting Beliefs

Following is a short list of what self limiting beliefs consist of.  What others can you think of

  • Excuses
  • Justifications
  • Worries
  • Beliefs conditioned from religion, culture or family
  • Negative thought patterns
  • Perfectionist thinking
  • Past failures
  • Fears

Journaling Can Help

Journaling

Journaling

Journaling is a very good habit to start.  It’s a great way to get inside your own head, to write down the thoughts and feelings you have.  Start with a goal, a dream or desire.  Write down everything that comes to you,  whether positive or negative.

Be brutally honest with yourself.  Once you have written until you can write no more, go back and find the negative thoughts and feelings.  Pay attention to any patterns you may see.

Overcoming Self Limiting Beliefs

  • Don’t allow yourself to be defined by these beliefs
  • Choose to stop agreeing with the limiting beliefs
  • Question all of the conclusions you have about what you think to be true
  • Take some kind of action to test your assumptions
  • Spend time integrating a new, empowering belief

Sometimes, it can be just that simple.  The biggest hurdle of all will be remembering what you’ve been allowing yourself to believe all these years, and maintaining the new beliefs you wish to put into place.  When you finally realize you have ingrained these positive and empowering beliefs into your daily life, you will begin noticing all the abundant aspects that have been there all along, waiting for you to acknowledge. How many self limiting beliefs have you been holding onto all these years?

Living Abundantly by Giving Abundantly

Far too many people pursuing a life of abundance through the Law of Attraction are doing so for purely selfish reasons.  I will be the first to admit, I began this journey with the LOA largely because of what I could get out of it.  Although I have always wanted to be able to help others, I sought a life of abundance to fill a void. My largest concern was how to make my life more comfortable; mainly, so I could find more enjoyment and fulfillment relationally and materialistically.  I didn’t completely ignore the spiritual aspects of it all, but it was not anywhere near the top of my list.

As I began this new journey though, I was forced to look inward to find the true source of discontent. That’s when I realized the times I was happiest and most fulfilled were the times I knew I had helped others in pursuing their lives of fulfillment. This is not the type of help in which one loses themselves and their sense of self in the process, but of giving that of which they have an abundance. In return, even more abundance is returned.

Giving of Yourself Abundantly

Giving abundantly can take many forms, from the smallest gesture to the largest commitment.  Giving of yourself and what you have brings a glow to your heart.

Glowing Heart

Glowing Heart

Did you smile and thank the cashier and bagger at the grocery?  Did you allow the car in the next lane to merge in front of you?   When was the last time you visited a retirement home, or have you ever?  Have you considered donating time to Meals on Wheels?  If you belong to a church, are you active in their charitable events?  Do you donate clothes or furniture, or do you find it easier to set it all out with the trash pick-up?

I do not have the ability to drive anywhere at any time, but I found I could give my support through an online prayer group.  Even though I am not a religious person, it matters not.  I believe there is a higher power.  Call it God, The Divine, The Universe…prayers, thoughts and intentions are sent, received and answered. There are over 100,000 members in this prayer group.  Can you imagine the effect those prayers have?  Reading some of the messages of thanks brings tears to my eyes.

It Doesn’t Take Much Money to Make a Difference

When I began donating, I couldn’t afford much.  I found that with a few dollars, I could put a Thanksgiving dinner on a family’s table.  I could help feed the homeless that went to a church or shelter for a hot meal on a cold night.

Have you donated money to any charities – international, national or local?  Do you drop your extra change in the Salvation Army bucket during the holidays?  Do you buy those little flags from the AmVets table when it is set up outside the grocery store?  How about supporting the Red Cross when disaster strikes…or before is even better.   There are SO many legitimate charities, from local to international.  Chose one or two, if that’s all you can afford, more if you can do so.  Your heart will truly glow, knowing you are doing what you can to help those less fortunate than you.

Any sort of giving is the perfect way to make you more grateful for what you have.  It will truly make you feel abundant.  And, when giving unconditionally starts to bring more abundance into your life as a way of thanking you, share more.  The cycle has begun, and you will surely be a better, more abundant woman for the giving of yourself and what you have to share.

What have you shared, contributed or donated lately?  Didn’t it make you feel wonderful about doing so?  Share you stories. I would love to read them.

Sabotage of the Subconscious Mind of an Abundant Woman

You try, you want, you desire, you meditate…..and yet it seems as if you’re stuck, going nowhere fast.  Could it be your subconscious mind is being sabotaged by thoughts and feelings of which you’re not even aware? The subconscious mind has accumulated years of habitual programming that goes on without you even consciously thinking about it.  Memories of negative experiences program you  to identify with negative “self beliefs” such as I’m inadequate, I’m worthless, I’m defective, I’m unattractive, I’m a loser, I’m a failure.  Those types of negative beliefs behave like “set points” that trigger automatic self destructive actions and thoughts that inevitably become self-fulfilling prophecies.  So, we’ve been told that if we practice positive affirmations,  we will attract positive results through the law of attraction.  Although, this is correct, if our affirmations are only rattling around in our conscious minds, what does that say of what is happening in the subconscious?  Your subconscious mind may be limiting and sabotaging you in ways that you do not even realize.

How Can You Overcome Sabotage of the Subconscious Mind?

Tension

Tension

Through practices such as meditation, yoga, or hypnosis, you will learn to develop mindfulness and an ability to live  your life consciously.  With these practices, you will  learn to observe events happening in your life consciously instead of them happening “to” you without your awareness.  You will begin to act consciously,  instead of reacting unconsciously. What you used to automatically respond to without thought, you’ll begin to notice as a negative or positive trigger of response.  Those negative triggers can then be dealt with, and old responses can be transformed into new thoughts and ideas. Those limiting beliefs can be transformed into new, positive ideals, which can then be incorporated into your meditations or self-hypnosis (which will be covered in another post).  The positive affirmations which were originally only found in the conscious mind can now be transformed into new and positive subconscious thoughts and feelings.

Remember to always keep your thoughts and feelings in your awareness and abolish anything negative that creeps in before it becomes something that encourages any sort if sabotage of your subconscious mind.

 

 

Creative Visualization for Abundance and Success

By Margot Huff – When it comes to abundance, creative visualization is so very important.  Without it, being able to attract abundance into your life is practically impossible.  Creative visualization can help you improve any area of your life with which you feel needs improvement.  You will have, do and be better at anything you visualize.  You’ll attract new, inspiring people and opportunities into your life. This really is a life changing practice….and it starts with your imagination

Creative visualization is using your imagination to visualize the life you want to create. There is nothing new or unusual about creative visualization. You already use it daily; in fact, every minute of every day. It is the power of imagination, the basic creative energy of the universe, which you use constantly, whether consciously or not.  In the past, we have all unconsciously used our power of creative visualization.  Because of the negative concepts about life which have been ingrained in us since childhood, we have automatically and unconsciously expected and imagined lack, limitation and difficulties to be a big part of life; and that is exactly what we have created for ourselves.girlmeditatingonthesunset_0

The Difference Between Daydreams and Creative Visualization

When you daydream, you are experiencing pleasant visionary distraction of the mind; a  mild, wishful creation of the imagination, a pleasant fantasy, and that is as far as it goes. Comparing a daydream to creative visualization is like comparing a fluffy little kitten to a fierce lioness. Creative visualization goes so much further.  With creative visualization, you need to completely immerse yourself into this projection from the imagination and infuse it with positive emotions.  As with meditation, you should find a quiet place away from all distractions.  Once you have the visualization in your mind, include as much sensual vibrancy as you can.  See the deep blue sky, hear the birds chirping, smell the orange blossom, feel the soft grass beneath your feet.  The most important of this visualization – infuse it with deep, positive emotions.

With  your imagination, you can “rewire” your subconscious to help you become happier, healthier, more creative,  abundant and confident;  or achieve almost any other goal  for which you aim.  Your subconscious mind is so powerful, it can help you live the life you’ve always wanted — a fulfilling life  with success, happiness, excitement and so much natural motivation that you jump out of bed every morning, thrilled to be alive, and revitalized by the inspiration of achieving your biggest dreams…  abundant dreams that you deserve.

How Creative Visualization Works

There have been over 200 studies showing that visualization improves everything from your memory to physical skills and productivity…and that’s just the start.  Because the use of you imagination “feels” real to your nervous system, creative visualization works quickly to impact you at the subconscious level.  What that means is that you can use it to intentionally and effectively improve any and all areas of your life.

Success and Abundance with Creative Visualization

Creative visualization can help you improve any area of your life.  It can help you attract the experiences and success you need to achieve abundance, even if you seem to attract lack and scarcity, or sabotage your efforts to improve your life.  It will help you attain enormous gains in abundance and success.  And it’s so much easier than you could ever imagine!
