Combine Power Posing With Belief Altering Activities

So you are interesting in creating a better future for yourself, utilizing the principles of Law of Attraction and co-creation. Then you are already aware of the fact that you need to change some of your beliefs that are limiting you, and are indicated via a negative feeling, in order to manifest your desired result.
Yet, seems harder than it sounds after actually trying to implement these new beliefs, and make them stick. Old behaviors and patterns tend to return after a few days of practice, even though your intent was to make a lasting change.

We receive exactly what we expect to receive - John Holland

How can we change that from happening?

One example is to combine the practice of intentional power posing with the life-affirming actions of thought control via affirmations and mantras.

 

Far & Wide Collective
This means in practice, that throughout a practice session, which ideally should happen three times a day for about 10 minutes, but at a minimum during your morning routine for 10 minutes, one assumes a power pose. You can use any powerful stance you like, as long as you stand up straight, with your chin high and your eyes forward, shoulders rolled back, and not slouched. For more information on power poses, you can watch Amy Cuddy’s video here, I especially like the pose she calls “Wonder Woman Pose”. After holding this position for two minutes, sit comfortably but again in a powerful position, meaning straight, with your feet on the ground, and in an upright, not slouched position, and repeat your chosen affirmations, or mantras, as you would usually.

At this time, you are now integrating this new belief, while being the physical and chemical state of powerfulness. The most instantly noticeable change is, that your feelings will be of a more positive nature, than if you just practiced from a standard position. In the long-run you will feel overall more powerful, and open to your new beliefs with a more lasting, effect. A powerful place from which to become an effective co-creator.

 

Have a wonderful day!

If You Were Here With Me In Las Vegas – A Weekend Coffee Share Post

Weekend Coffee Share

Hey there, glad to have you here again for coffee. Do you like this cup? It is one of my own designs, and yes, you can take it home with you.
I hope you do not mind that I will use your visit as an excuse to stop organizing my Zazzle stores for a moment. I did not bake anything this week, too busy, but I bought us some streusel cake.
So this week had been another busy one. I am trying to get ready for a few things, first the above-mentioned stores have to be ready for the upcoming holiday season. I have given them and myself a week to make them just the way I want to. By next Saturday, they better are that way.
Also, NaNoWriMo is only a month away. I want to have the first draft of a book finished by then and use that month to edit the mess I wrote. I say mess because the first draft is always a vomit draft – just a bunch of stuff written on paper – it is the subsequential stages that carve out a true story. Apparently this story will the intro to the town most of my Paranormal fantasy series will be centered in. So the details have to be right at the end. And they will be – hopefully.
Amazon is launching an Etsy-like business section for homemade products, and I am trying to find out as much info as I can. I really love the idea, and will be writing about it on the blog, whenever I get info about it. This will be interesting. (P.S. saw some of the pre-launch selection of some stores and darn they look good – impressive stuff)
If you were here  with me, I would tell you all of the reasons I do not like living in Las Vegas – the gambling in the grocery stores, the groves of homeless people in the parks, just a little bit away from tourist section, the dirtiness of the city, the personal stories of loss and addiction I have been listening to. It is a hard, dangerous city that takes so much out of so many people. On one hand, I see tourists and people with money (as obvious by their clothing, and expensive cars), walking around and partially stepping over people with no place to live. Poverty is everywhere in the US, but I have never seen it so much in your face and seen so many people act as if it is okay. It is not okay. But for me, a temporary resident only here to work for a few months, there is not much I can do. And that is what is killing me. I do what I can, donate where I can, listen to people’s stories and give a kind word or two. As I worry about the content of my next blog post, they are worried about what to feed their children or themselves. It took me a while to learn that I can not rescue everyone – an affliction my husband and I seem to share – so we do what we can to help. I just don’t feel like it is ever enough.

Okay, I’ll stop with the depressing talk, turning back toward my usual more upbeat self, hoping that you enjoyed your coffee, and I will bid you farewell with a blessing of prosperity and happiness, hoping that you and your loved ones will always have what you need, and wishing that you would share with those who do not.

Blessings!

P.S. Please check out all of the other wonderful people who write as a part of the “Weekend Coffee Share”. Give them some love!

The Birth Of A Dream

within the birth of a dream
innocence was lost,
but the power emerged
with such force,
that nothing ever kept me
from following my desires
again

The Spell – A Five Sentence Flash Fiction

The Spell - A Five Sentence Flash Fiction

She made the offering with gentleness and care, honoring the path of her ancestors, while softly murmuring a prayer, I could not understand.
Floating, her bare feet seemingly not touching the soft grass of the large yard, she was somewhere else, not only in spirit, but also in body.
Her soft, long hair weaved back and forth in the warm breeze, then she froze, smiled and open her eyes, looking directly at me, with such suddenness that it startled me.
Nodding at my puzzlement, her smile deepened, as she said clearly, the first words of her’s I actually understood: “So Mote It Be!”

Groundhog Week – Lessons Learned

Today’s Question is: If you could relive the past week, would you? Would you change anything?

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
John Quincy Adams

A week of obstacles, a week of lessons learned, course directions made, and new bright futures discovered. Could I have lived without the despair of betrayal, of course. Did I learn from that, did we, my husband and I, as we are rising above the trials of owning our own business? Plenty. Our patience and perseverance has taught us lessons about our own strengths, lessons I will not take for granted. These are stepping-stones from which we can build upon.

Follow Your Dreams

If you are not willing to accept lessons, learn to see that failure is not that, but an opportunity, then you, my friend, have no business in business.

This is a daily prompt post “Groundhog Week”

Classes In Society

Classes in society – an outdated concept?

A label of separation we give ourselves to define our differences between each other. It also indicates less of fluidity between motion of successful and just starting out, reaching ones goals, or failing to do so. 

My neighborhood for example.

I live in a nice “middle class” condo complex. It is well taken care off, has everything that a nice complex should have, beautiful pools, a club house, grounds well kept, a lake, boat and RV parking, security. We all pay the same, our properties are worth about the same. So you would think we would be all of the same level, approximately in income or “class”. 

Wrong.

We have one person who takes his turns to dig through the dumpsters. We have another whom has a weekly maid service, as well as gets her car detailed – at home. We have people who drive antiques, and people who’s car if it had a wash would fall apart. We have families with 7 kids in a 2 bedroom condo, and a retired NFL player, who lives there with his 2 purebred dogs and his elegant wife. We have a person who changes his luxury cars (which are worth more then his condo) faster then other people their outfits, and a single Airforce captain. Some struggle to make ends meet, some like us, get a weekly organic vegetable delivery, well because I can. 

We all live in the same neighborhood, under the same roofs, separated by (sometimes) too thin walls, and expectations about life. We are all what you would call middle class, but if defined by income and our way of spending money, have nothing in common. 

But we do have something in common. We are not classes. We are people. We are filled with the same emotions. We all have dreams. We could choose to separate ourselves, but we don’t. We all have value. We all live here, in this corner of the planet. 

If we would do ourselves a favor and stop looking at classes, but rather at each other as people of value, all in our own way, maybe we could reach outside of our (sometimes) self-imposed prison of social class. 

Have a wonderful day!
