Freedom Day Nuggets!!!

Happy 4th! Enjoy the holiday and let these marinate :-) 

Find yourself and express yourself in your own particular way. Express your love openly. Life is nothing but a dream, and if you create your life with love, your dream becomes a masterpiece of art.  
                        ~ Don Miguel Ruiz  


Show kindness whenever possible. Show it to the people in front of you, the people coming up behind you, and the people with whom you are running neck and neck. It will vastly improve the quality of your own life, the lives of others, and the state of the world.
                        ~ Ann Patchett


By respect for life we become religious in a way that is elementary, profound and alive. Impart as much as you can of your spiritual being to those who are on the road with you, and accept as something precious what comes back to you from them.
                        ~ Albert Schweitzer


Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
                        ~ Muhammad Ali


I'm very much a believer in knowing what it is that you love doing so you can do a great deal of it.
                        ~ Nora Ephron


Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.
                                ~ Rita Schiano


Let It Roll off Our Back
Dodging and Deflecting

When we are criticized or attacked it is important to not take it into our heart space.

One of the most difficult challenges in life is learning not to take things to heart and hold on to it. Especially when we‚re younger, or if we‚re very sensitive, we take so much of what comes our way to heart. This can be overwhelming and unproductive if it throws us off balance on a regular basis. When we are feeling criticized or attacked from all directions, it becomes very difficult for us to recover ourselves so that we can continue to speak and act our truth. This is when we would do well to remember the old saying about letting certain things roll off us, like water off a duck's back.  

Most of the time, the attacks and criticisms of others have much more to do with them and how they are feeling than with us. If we get caught up in trying to adjust ourselves to other people‚s negative energy, we lose touch with our core. In fact, in a positive light, these slings and arrows offer us the opportunity to strengthen our core sense of self, and to learn to dodge and deflect other people‚s misdirected negativity. The more we do this, the more we are able to discern what belongs to us and what belongs to other people. With practice, we become masters of our energetic integrity, refusing to serve as targets for the disowned anger and frustration of the people around us.  

Eventually, we will be able to hear the feedback that others have to offer, taking in anything that might actually be constructive, and releasing that which has nothing to do with us. First, though, we tend ourselves compassionately by recognizing when we can‚t take something in from the outside without hurting ourselves. This is when we make like a duck, shaking it off and letting it roll off our back as we continue our way in the world.

Notes from the Universe

And while on the subject of "Whoohooos!", they always return louder than when they were first sent out. 

Matter manipulation secrets of ye old happy dancers, 
    The Universe


One of life's most elusive lessons, saved for only the wise and peculiar, is that there's nothing, ever, to be unhappy about. 

Unless, of course, you lose sight of the big picture, think the illusions are real, or forget there's no such place as far away. 

    The Universe


For all things and non-things that you may ever want, understand that sometimes the fastest way to get them is to forget them, and to focus instead on just being the most amazing human being you can be. At which point all of your heart's desires, spoken or unspoken, will be drawn to you more powerfully than a magnet is drawn to steel. 

Have an amazing day, 
    The Universe


The older the soul, the softer the glance, the quicker the smile and the sooner to say "I love you." 

Utterly fearless, 
    The Universe


Please help spread the word. Here are the top 10 ways people give away their power:

1.  Asking others what they should do.
2. Thinking God decides who gets what.
3. Worrying about how their dream will come true.
4. Thinking they have dues to pay.
5. Attaching to unimportant details and outcomes.
6. Believing in soul mates.
7. Thinking karma or spiritual contracts are absolute.
8. Fear of anything, especially falling in love.
9. Waiting for their ducks to line up before acting.
10. Choosing to be unhappy.

Understand the truth, little bird, and you will soar.

The Teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks

Most people have a hard time delegating, or even wanting to delegate, because you have been justifying your existence through your hard work, and you equate success with struggle; you equate results with struggle. And so, you sort of wear your struggle like a badge of honor. And all of that is opposite of allowing the Well-being. The only thing that ever matters in success or achievement is your achieving the things that you want to achieve. So if you are setting standards and you're feeling uncomfortable about the standards that you've set, tweak the standards back a little bit. Ratchet it back a notch. Give yourself a break. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Lighten up. Be easier. Go slower. Take it easy. Have more fun. Love yourself more. Laugh more. Appreciate more. All is well. You can't get it wrong. You never get it done.


Begin telling the story of your desire, and then add to it the details of the positive aspects that you can find that match those desires. And then embellish your positive expectation by speculating with your good-feeling Wouldn't it be nice if . . . ? examples. You can say things like: Only good things come to me. . . I'll figure it out as I go along. . .. Every time you tell your better-feeling story, you will feel better and the details of your life will improve. The better it gets, the better it gets.


Everything that has ever been lived, everything that has ever been written down or documented, has been vibration first. Everything has been conjured in vibration first before it manifests. So if something has manifested and you continue to give it your attention, the fact that it is true should really hold no weight with you. The question that we would ask is not, is it true, or is it undeniable? The question that we would ask is, how does it make me feel when I focus upon it? And if the answer to the question is, it doesn't make me feel very good when I focus upon it, then we would say, true or not, it does not serve you. And if you will activate a different part of your vibration—the "truth" will shift.


By Default, I Could Have Attracted Unwanted Relationships... Many of the relationships or experiences you have attracted you would not have deliberately attracted if you had been doing it on purpose, but much of your attraction is not done by deliberate intent, but rather by default. . . . It is important to understand that you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. And chronic thoughts about unwanted things invite, or ask for, matching experiences. The Law of Attraction makes it so.


Children coming forth today have a greater capacity to deal with the greater variety of information that is coming forward than you did. They deliberately are coming forth into this environment where there is more to contemplate. This generation gap that you are talking about, it has ever been thus. Each new generation, every new individual, that comes forth, is coming with you having prepared a different platform for them to proceed from. There is this thing that gets in the way of that that says, "I'm the parent. I got here first. I know more than you do." From the children's perspective, and from the purity of their Nonphysical Perspective, what they are saying is, "You're the parent. You got here first. You prepared a platform that I am leaping off from — and my leap will be beyond anything that you have ever known.


One Minute Motivator by Edward W. Smith

It is not what happens to you, it is what you do about it.  Ed Agresta says that what happens to you, happens to everybody, so the difference is in what we do about it. If you pick yourself up after having a problem, and work on a solution and then actually do something to fix it, you can move your life ahead.  Realize that you are in control of much of what you do with the events that come your way.  Taking charge of a response, stops you from feeling like a victim, and gives you the self-confidence to handle the situation.  Take what life hands you and deal with it in some way, then you can get your life back on track.


Maybe it is time to buy your mind a larger pair of shoes.  Your mind grows and changes over time as you gain experience, knowledge, maturity, etc.  Some times we get stuck in values, beliefs, goals, etc that no longer fit us, because of these changes.  Just like a child that has outgrown his shoes and gets a larger size, maybe it is time for you to get a larger size of goals and dreams that fit who you are today.  Strive to be really into the things in your life, or to change them. It is not normal to be average.  The average person is not really into anything, they go through life, just going through the motions, and they don't feel anything strongly. You on the other hand, should find fascination with the things in your life.  Look for things to spark your interest in your job, or your studies, what can you add, what questions can you ask, what can you change for the better. Things around you are constantly changing, just as your own body and mind are changing. Pay attention to all these changes and become fascinated by them.  Get into the things in your life and get more out of life. Don't be average, be yourself.


Proven successes can work for you or against you.  If you have a proven system for something that works and you try to change it, chances are you will not do as well. The message here is that if it works, leave it alone.  The other thing about proves success is that anyone can copy it and have it work for them.  So if you see a successful system, if you do the same thing, you will get the same results.  The message here is that you don't have to reinvent the wheel to be successful; you just have to copy someone who is already successful.


Daily Teaching from the Power

Watch the Movie of Your Life!

Life is magical! What happens in one day of your life is more magical than any fantasy movie you can see, but you have to look at what is happening with the same concentration as when you watch a movie. If you're watching a movie and you get distracted with a phone call or you fall asleep, you miss what happens. It's the same thing with the movie of your life that is constantly showing on the screen of your day. If you are walking around asleep and you're not alert, you miss the messages and synchronicities that are constantly speaking to you, guiding and directing you in your life!

Life is responding to you. Life is communicating with you. There are no accidents nor coincidences: every single thing has a frequency, and when anything comes into your life, it means it's on the same frequency as you are. Everything you see - every sign, color, person, object - everything you hear, every circumstance and event is on your frequency.

                "So astounding are the facts in this connection that it would seem as though the Creator himself had electrically designed this planet."
                                        ~ Nikola Tesla (1856-1943)
                                        Inventor of the Radio and Alternating Current
