After Ramona welcomed members and guests, Eddie Conner led us in a meditation to release old outdated beliefs inside an amethyst and clear quartz crystal.  This meditation  may be heard on our YouTube.com channel at Releasing Outdated Beliefs

Tonight’s video was a combination of three hot-seat episodes in which Esther uses humor to make three important points.  The video is entitled Funny Abraham Moments and may be viewed on YouTube.com at FunnyAbrahamMoments.

Subscribe to our YouTube channel.  Go to YouTube.com and search for MikeAndRamona.LOA to subscribe and see these and all our videos as they are released.

The first episode is entitled “Esther’s Revenge”.  The hot-seat person is wondering why his inner being is sending him weird/crazy thoughts. Abraham’s key point is that your thoughts become manifestations that realize into the creation of our initial thought.  So, be careful of your first thoughts.  You can be in the receptive mode of your inner being or in the receptive mode of trouble or torment.  If you are overwhelmed or angry, be careful about how it plays out.  Esther gave an example of how someone took her parking spot and what she did to them.  If you feel great, however, watch as things line up and unfold for you.

In the second segment, Abraham states that when we were non-physical we were Source Energy Consciousness.  That energy can remain when we become physical entities.  When we tune into that frequency it is amazing and exuberant.  We feel clarity.  All we need to do is STOP doing “That thing you do” that cuts us off from those feelings – things like worry or fussing over non-controllable events.  Just give up control of the uncontrollable because those things are controlled by the Law of Attraction.  When you decide to control the way you feel by achieving emotional clarity, then emotional manifestations take place.  The process will be easy:  Emotions – Thoughts – Visualization.  Abraham gives an example of Esther’s recent experience with the TSA.

The third segment shows us how easy to manifest when coming from a state of emotional clarity.  When you ask, it is given!  Period.

The key take-aways were:
Focus on what you DO want.
Give up the uncontrollable things in life and you will be happier.
The only things you CAN control are how you think, feel and react.
When you ask, it is given.  Just be in the receptive mode to recognize it.
Let go of attachment and give love unconditionally.
We are always changing and evolving.  We do best when we go with the flow.

Before the potluck and “Get to know one another” game, members prepared their annual letters to the Universe listing their three biggest desires for 2020.  

Our next meeting will be January 13, 2020.  Please note – due to the holidays, this is a little later in the month than normal.

Wednesday, November 6, 2019



Tonight’s meeting is a mastermind in which members may ask any question and the group provides Abraham based guidance.  It was so successful we decided to forgo the showing of any videos.

Ramona greeted members and guests and introduced EDDIE CONNER who provided a GUIDED MEDITATION which may be viewed on our YouTube channel, MikeAndRamona.LOA.  

The first person wanted to know the role of detachment in attracting what you want, like a new, better job.

Put the desire out there (Ask for what you want) and then just do whatever makes you happy.  The job will come to you.
Don’t think with your brain, use your gut.  Concentrate on appreciation, excitement and belonging.
Harmonize with the core essence of the type of job you desire.
Flow energy towards the job you want before you go to sleep and before you get out of bed each morning.
Figure out why you are attached to the outcome so you can let go of the negative feelings.
Be in the place and space of receiving what you want and why you want it.
Let go of nerves.
Let go of worry.
Let go of fear.
Let go of insecurity.
Let go of outdated programs.
Make a list of all the positive attributes you want in your new career position.

How do I feel good when it seems that everything in my work and money are going down the drain.

Go general.
Break old patterns.  This current situation is only temporary.  Concentrate on creating a new, artistic and expansive YOU.
Don’t use your worry as an imaginative, magnetizing tool because you will accidentally keep attracting more of what you don’t want.
Send light.
Send love and pure appreciation to everything that already is working for you, not against you.
Simply focus on what you want.

Need a lift?

Find someone with whom you can play the “Top That” game. For examplet, the first person says “I found a hundred dollar bill”. Second person tops that by saying, I won a million dollars in the lottery.  And so on…  It will make you both feel good.

How do I feel good when I have to take in a difficult parent?

Send them light and love before they move in.
Set boundaries.  Just say “no”.
Go general with your intentions.  
Take care of yourself FIRST!
Visualize your parent finding alternative housing and being happy.

Why do I continue attracting relationships with men who get sick and die?

Your vibration is where you last left it.
You are a healer and you attract people who desire to be healed.
The definition of a love relationship is one of giving more to it than I get back.
Learn to put yourself first, others second.
Stop talking about what is.  Talk about what you want in your heart of hearts.
Focus only on all the things that are working, that feel peaceful, that lift you up, that inspire your heart, mind, and soul.

Our next meeting is our annual holiday meeting/pot luck on December 9.  Click here to sign up now.  Hope to see you there.

After Ramona welcomed members and guests, Eddie Conner led us in a guided meditation “A Desire to Fix Things”, available on our YouTube channel.  

The first video was “A Desire to Fix Things”, available on our YouTube channel.    In it Patrick, one of our members, was invited to the hot-seat and expressed his desire to want to fix things.  Abraham explained that is a normal human response.  Since subconscious thoughts are not active, we just need to leave them where they are.  Anything we focus upon, however, will get bigger.  If we go to a healer to fix whatever is broken inside us, the healer will usually try to dig as deeply as possible into the broken “part” to get to the root of the issue.  Abraham equates that type of analysis to digging a deep hole from which we start a journey uphill. Abraham suggests a better approach would be to start from where you are and head towards where you want to be.

Abraham says “You are where you are.  Just make peace with where you are.”  Whenever you find yourself in a state of negative emotion, Source would tell you to just go to bed.  If you try to fix things while in a state of negative emotion you eventually get to a point where you just give up.  

Patrick described an experience he had in a breath workshop concentrating on the chakras.  Some negative emotions came to the surface.  Instead of focusing on the issue that arose, he worked his way through the emotions and, at the end of the exercise, he felt really good. 

When attempting to get to the bottom of something like a childhood trauma, your Inner Being or Source are not going to bring that solution to you because you are concentrating on a negative thought.  If you concentrate on the trauma, it just gets bigger like any negative emotion.  Thankfully, when you focus on the good in life, the good also just gets bigger.  EVERYTHING WE FOCUS UPON GETS BIGGER.  The natural conclusion is do not focus on the problem.  Instead, focus on the SOLUTION.

Members added the following:  Focus on the fix, not the problem; If you want to go up in life, don’t go down first; Focus on what you do want, not what you don’t want; When we choose to appreciate things, we can shift from negativity to a high; No two things can occupy the same space at the same time; The fix is the desired end result of joy we are reaching for; Happiness is always alive and well within us whether we’re aware of it or not;  Pick up “the end of the stick” that’s what you do want-not what you don’t want; Remember we are worthy, aligned and enough; As humans we may move backwards, but our inner being is always moving forward.

The second video was “Contrast Leads to Solution” available on our YouTube channel.  Patrick describes how our Inner Being can lead us through a moment of contrast knowing that will lead us to a solution.  That’s because our Inner Being knows where we are and only wants thriving and well-being for us.  Patrick’s breath work was a form of meditation because it made him focus upon one thing – the problem.  But then Patrick disengaged from the problem and concentrated on his breath, he connected with Source and had a step 5 (contrast) moment where his Inner Being addressed the problem and determined its irrelevance.  

Contrast is merely variety.  Resistance is a slowing or stopping of the energy.  Patrick’s breath work allowed him to focus on the problem in a meditative state which showed him what the issue was AND THE SOLUTION.  

We are on a continuum of “Becoming.”  Everything that has happened before is developing momentum. Where you are now is the sum total of all you have lived.  And where you are now affords you constant new choices.  That provides you with a “picture” of the possibilities that are ahead of you.  Listen to your Inner Being when deciding on the choices.  Over time, as you move through those choices, you will lessen the resistance.  As humans we have the feeling that in order to move forward we must sacrifice and suffer and earn.  Once we get over those feelings, then large amounts of resistance fall by the wayside.  Resistance isn’t all bad; consider it a step 5 moment in which it activates your Inner Being to lead you to the solution.  

It is important to maintain a positive now reality.  If your manifestations are positive, but your now reality is negative, you will only bring out more negatives.  You must have a positive now reality to manifest positive results.  You can’t completely ignore your past because it is part of your continuum of becoming.  Just don’t concentrate on the negatives.  Sift through the past step 5 moments.  And by listening to your Inner Being in making choices you will be leaning towards a positive becoming which is leaning in the direction of who you really are.  Once you like what you are becoming and what you are, you can say “Thank you for everything that I’ve been, that led to everything that I am, that’s leading to everything that I’m becoming”.  That is forgiving yourself!  

Patrick’s discussed his experience in the hot seat.  Staying in step 5, even with his history, feels good to him because he knows that coming from a good place, the contrast can help lead to a solution.  Redirecting his focus is the key since he knows his power in is the “now”.  Looking back at his past, he can see it and talk about it without resistance.

Members added the following:  We are reminded that we did our best back in the day; Forgiveness is not needed; Even in contrast, we can stay calm; Remember to breathe so we can feel better by choice; Contrast is really just variety providing many delicious things from which to choose; The law of attraction has always been my friend; Use your natural gifts to stay in your personal natural flow; We should avoid revisiting our past for the reason something isn’t working today-rather we should stay in the moment and choose the highest thought possible; It’s more fun to sift through the beautiful moments past, present and beyond; There are gifts everywhere today-love looking for them and speaking about them daily; Feel good because it feels good to feel good; Abraham doesn’t talk about learning lessons-instead Abraham speaks of being, awareness and alignment; Our inner being is always giving us a way to reframe and align with our personal evolution; Breathwork, which is really a form of meditation, can keep us happily shifted and miraculously redirected to what we do want.

Our next meeting will be Monday, November 4 at 7PM. The topic will be “Bring it On” – Your Law of Attraction Questions Answered in a Mastermind Format.  All questions will be answered, so bring ‘em on!

It's Not Your Job

The topic this evening is NOT YOUR JOB.  The meaning behind the topic is to help us determine what we should be concerned with and what should we not worry about.

Eddie Conner provided another inspiring meditation, available on our YouTube channel at Eddie Conner Meditation. This and many of his past meditations are available on our YouTube channel, MikeAndRamona.LOA

The opening video,It’s Not Your Job, is available on our YouTube channel at It’s Not Your Job.  In it, Abraham explains we don’t need to worry about how the earth spins, or if the sun is going to rise, or if our heart will pump blood through our veins.  It’s not your job to worry about things such as these because they are not action-oriented jobs.  Just relax and spend time thinking about things you can do to improve the world we live in.  We don’t need to withdraw from life; just remember there is an energy that creates worlds and it is working for you because you are blessed and deserving.  

When you are exposed to things that are unpleasant, such as people who are hungry or homeless, that experience sends up rockets of desire on how it could be better.  Those rockets are recognized by the energy that creates worlds and that, in turn, gives birth to a better world.  But, if you keep focusing on the problem, and don’t line up with the way you and the Universe would like to see it, nothing will change.  We must quit focusing on the problem and spend our time and energy aligning with the way we want the world to be.  

The animals and babies come into this world expecting well-being to flow.  How can we change the world to make it a better place for us and the animals and babies? Step back from it all for a month and tap into your true power.  Tell yourself you are going to predominantly daydream.  Show up in your wholeness expecting good things and inspiration to come in a timely manner. You will be accessing a higher power through your daydreaming.  Abraham says the energy of a non-resistant thought is more powerful than that of an atom bomb.

Abraham tells the story about Estherwaiting in the first-class lounge at the airport.  She received impulses to take a drink of water, to use a breath mint, and then to go to the departure gate about an hour earlier than needed.  When she was at the gate, someone recognized her and exclaimed that she had been wishing and hoping to run into her.  Esther realized that the person had been sending those thoughts and Esther, having followed each impulse, was drawn to her.  An example of how powerful and energetic those non-resistant thoughts can be.

The Universe knows everything you want and when you follow the impulses, you will be led to the path of least resistance which will give you the most fun along the way.  Usually, however, we want the big payoff, like winning the lottery, instead of the many smaller payoffs we get.  The Universe wants us to understand those smaller payoffs are just as rewarding. When we daydream, we are maintaining a feeling of alignment.  By following our impulses moment by moment, the Universe is delivering the best it has to offer.  That’s what living happily ever after really is.  Our lives will be filled with abundance, amazing rendezvous, and everything we need.

There is nothing we cannot be, or do, or have.  If we hold ourselves in vibrational resistance, however, our minds are enveloped in our resistance instead of where we want to be. Sometimes this is due to measuring our success in life against what others have done, how they have disapproved of us, etc.  In effect, we have given our power over to them.  When we understand this, we will allow ourselves to purposefully daydream and that will create vibrational alignment with what we want. 

Just daydream more, as you did when you were a child.  Start leveraging the energy that creates worlds, go to more places where you feel good, and daydream.  Give yourself time to sit still while your vibration rises so you can receive the impulses to put you in at the right place at the right time for the things you are looking for.  

The salient points picked up by the group were -- relax and allow good things to come, follow your impulses, let go of the struggle and just let it be, remember to take breaks and do the things you enjoy, let go of your old habits of thought one at a time.  Remember to let go of all the things that no longer serve you. Allow resistance to be your friend.  Remember that contrast births new rockets of desire; therefore, out of contrast comes beautiful things.  Each day do your part to choose joy and happiness over your old patterns of worry. An old adage is that when we work 30% less we make 100% more.  

We all have self-doubts.  We get them through habit, learning the wrong things to focus upon, following the crowd before we learn to follow our inner guidance system.  We also become complacent instead of staying in the flow of our inner guidance.

We can overcome self-doubt by using a number of tools at our disposal.  Dare to daydream, enjoy the small victories, focus on the happy moments, play, imagine, pretend, make-believe, be in the moment.  

A question was raised asking how to stay in the “not your job” mood when it comes to global warming and climate change.  The answer is no one person can reverse the situation.  We must all do our part.  If each person in the world planted one tree it would replace the damage being done to the Brazilian rain forest.  Just focus on what you want instead of the opposite.  Pay attention to, and place your focus upon what is working for the greater good.  The newer generations coming into this world is comprised of advanced souls that are coming forth to participate in healing our planet. Remember, the Universe always has our back.

Summary.  When we are faced with contrast or resistance, remember that’s what sends up rockets of desire for what you truly want.  Allow yourself to daydream about how you can contribute to the solution of the problem, the resistance, the contrast.  Don’t concentrate on the problem or on things over which you have no control. Daydream solutions.  Just daydream more.

Our next meeting will be on October 7.  Hope to see you there.

After Ramona welcomed members and guests, Eddie Conner led us in a meditation “A Gift of Love” available on YouTube.com.  

The opening video was “Trust the Universe” available on YouTube through our channel MikeAndRamona.LOA.  Abraham is asked “How much can we trust the Universe?”  

Abraham says that this is an exercise in continuing attention because we are a continuing, evolving, fast changing being.  We create through our attention, which in other words is through our emission of vibration.  Our struggle comes about because we have become used to our way of doing things in the past, and now there are new ways.  In effect we have one foot in the old world, and one in the new, which creates a struggle.

The newer generations, however, don’t have that struggle.  They are pure positive energy and know where they should be headed. And what do we do with these new entries into our world?  We try our best to teach them the old ways, the ways with which we are comfortable.  We pull them out of the path they know is the right one for them, and we try our best to focus them on our reality.  And when they don’t comply, when they act out because we are forcing them in a direction they don’t want to go, what happens? We complain about it.  THAT KEEPS US FROM THE REALITY WE WANT.  

Abraham told a story about Esther travelling and encountering a flight delay.  Esther thought about how she had been lied to in the past and the flights that had been delayed, then cancelled.  She almost fell into the trap of worrying about how she was going to get to her final destination.  Then she realized she had plenty of time to either fly there or rent a car and driver. That relaxed her enough that she remembered the Universe has your back, no matter what.  So, Esther trusted that everything always works out for her, and waited for the flight to be boarded, which it did exactly when the delayed flight departure board indicated.

The moral of the story is that the Universe always has a plan for you.  You don’t have to figure it out.  Often when you try to figure it out on your own, you create more unnecessary resistance.  Things are always working out for you and nothing serious is really going on. Sometimes it is tempting to play out the worst case scenario because we want the adventure; we want to prove our worthiness; we want to triumph.

Abraham encourages us to be playful and have fun with our lives.  Accept the surprises the Universe has in store for us and delight in as many ways as we want.  NEVER ask the Universe to give you exactly what you’ve planned for yourself.  That would lead to a very boring life.  If you allow the Universe to reach out to all the possibilities, then it will “stand on its head” to give you all you want, when you want it.

The video brought out some good thoughts.  Just relax, chill out, take a breath, go general and let it go. Observe the things that are working for you.  Remember you can activate a new consciousness in only 17 seconds.  There is nothing really serious going on.  Just stay in the moment with the proper intention for the joy of it.  Meditate, take inventory of everything that is working out for you, count your blessings, segment intend and visualize what you do want.

Let go of the past, especially if it is negative.  Focus on feeling good because it lowers resistance.  Do not sweat the small stuff because in the end, it’s all small stuff. Feel the mantra “Let it go”.  Pull white light from the crown chakra through your body, mind and spirit. Play with your pets; connect with other like-minded people; think better and better thoughts; channel love to yourself and others.

It’s not your job to solve the world’s problems.  It ISyour job to stay in the flow of the Universe so you attract solutions.  Everything in our lives is an opportunity to beautifully stay tapped in, tuned in and turned on to the pure, positive energy of the Universe.  Know in your heart that everything always works out for you for your best and highest good.  Ask yourself what feels best in this moment; then use your inner guidance system to get the answers.

The group played the “What if” game for a member who seeks the highest and best way to attract a better job.  In the game, the group  suggests ideas that add positive energy to the end result the member desires. The group offered the following.  Make it a game; play the “wouldn’t it be nice if…” game to elevate your energy; love the job you are in now; list everything you appreciate about your current job.  Play the “My job” game, as in my job is to feel good; my job is to chill out; my job is to appreciate; my job is to be in the moment; my job is to feel joyous.

Believe you can have what you most desire; trust and accept and rejoice - the Universe will provide unconditionally; let go of control - be in the flow; remember to let go and just enjoy the process as it unfolds; do mini-shifts every five minutes to realign your purest intentions; create a sound track of music that amplifies your core essence energy; play guided meditations that take your heart, mind and soul to the perfect career you strongly want; know that you are right on time.

Ramona asked the group what makes them feel blissful. Suggestions were nature, meditation, hiking, pets, music, beach, photography, friends, appreciation, dancing, making love, good food, aha moments, sound baths, being there for others, listening to Abraham, and rejoicing in the beauty all around us.

Some books were recommended.  Sanaya Roman’sOpening to Channel”, “Soul Love”, “Spiritual Growth”, “Personal Power Through Awareness”, “Creating Money”, “Living With Joy”, and others.  Sanaya is a great Law of Attraction teacher and specializes in sending light, lowering resistance, and harmonizing with the heart’s desire.  Also recommended was “The Power of the Subconscious Mind” by Dr. Joseph Murphy.

Ramona read the following mantra which the group repeated out loud.
Dear Universe, I am happily going to chill more than in the past, and to trust the Universe much more often. So be it.

The closing video was “Simple Acts of Kindness – Paying it Forward” available on YouTube.  

Our next meeting will be September 9.  Remember to subscribe to our private Facebook page Burbank Law of Attraction Meetup Group.

After Ramona welcomed members and guests, we participated in the Five-Minute Calming Meditation by The Honest Guys available on YouTube. 

Ramona introduced David Minkin, International Champion of Magic and a member of our group. Before entertaining us with some of his magic, we showed a short video explaining how he persevered in the development of his latest act.  A sample of his magic may be viewed here along with information about his show. When you buy tickets, use the code "LOA" to get a discounted price.

The opening video was “Magical Perseverance” available on YouTube.  

Life causes you to create, even when you don’t realize it’s happening, and causes you to launch rockets of desire.  Those rockets of desire gather in your vortex.  Then, your Inner Being draws more to you until it becomes a vibration. As the vibration is enhanced, it becomes a thought, which is also your vision.  So, once it becomes a thought/vision and builds momentum, it will become a thing/reality UNLESS you think in opposition to it.  

Examples of opposition to your thought/vision are thoughts such as “It’s too hard; it’s too late; it’s never been done before” etc.  Those statement and thoughts wipe out the momentum you’ve built up towards obtaining your vision.  You can have results, or you can have excuses, but you cannot have both!

You can hold your vision even when contrast rears its ugly head. Remember your Inner Being never stops thinking those thoughts and never stops projection them to you.  All you need to do is stop thinking the thoughts that are in opposition to your vision so that you get back into the receptive mode.  How do you do that?  GET HAPPY AND STAY HAPPY.  That’s when thoughts become things.  And that’s what rings your bell.

When you are feeling you are losing the momentum, it’s because you are countering your vision with other thoughts that are in opposition to your vision. You are the only one who can add resistance to your vision.  Instead, focus forward.  Stop looking at the resistance because that builds more resistance.  Stop the gremlins in your head.  Be nice to yourself.  Go slowly.  Go general. You’ll get more clarity and make better decisions.  You have to catch it early, though.  And here’s what you need to do:
         Care about how you feel.
         Recognize that you are a vibrational being.
         Remember that vibrations matter.
         Make sure your opinion is in sync with your Inner Being
This will make you feel wonderful.  If in contradiction, you will feel terrible.

Your Inner Being knows your desire and knows the path of least resistance to get you there. If there is any resistance, YOU PUT IT THERE!  BUT, your Inner Being gives you guidance through clues to get you through, over, and around the resistance you put there.  So, your singular intention should be to remain in connection with your Inner Being so you can receive the clues/impulses it sends you.

The vortex did its job and held our desire/vision.  That part has been accomplished.  What comes next is the desire/vision becoming true – thoughts becoming things. What stops it is the resistance we place in its way.  What we must do is remain in connection with our Inner Being, follow the clues to get around the resistance, and perseverance in maintaining the vision and remaining in the receptive mode.  That’s how thoughts become things.  Through perseverance.  

Members added the following thoughts:
Choose to stay in a feeling of joy.
Allow yourself to be right.
Make the right decisions.
Love yourself regardless.
Flip negativity to happiness.
Follow your inner guidance.

Allow yourself to be loved.
Love yourself first.  It’s life-changing.
If you love from within, you will love all around you.

Mentally build a grid (general outline of how your day will flow) so your day will flow perfectly.
With the law of attraction, you are always in control.
Clear your mind by releasing negative thoughts.
Spin your perspectives (via LOA) higher, faster and more pure.
Encourage loving, joyful, feel-good thoughts for the joy of it.
Just know that all is well.
Perseverance is about being in the flow.

Ramona suggested the group play the daydreaming exercise.  It puts you in the receiving mode by tuning into your vortex. Just daydream about what you would really like to accomplish and share it with the group.  Here are some of the daydreams:
Opening a vegan donut and coffee shop.
Creating inspirational greeting cards.
Moving one block to be on the beach.

Eddie Conner(www.eddieconner.com) led us in a guided meditation asking our spirit guides and angels to help us connect to our higher self and maintain healthy bodies.  Eddie Conner Meditation.  

Ramona introduced the opening video, All Diseases Are Curable, a compilation of extracts from two Abraham-Hicks presentations. In the video, Abraham is asked how we can be able to heal ourselves rather than having to rely on doctors.  Can we?  Those people who never seem to get sick maintain a small gap between where they are and what they want.  People who are really sick have had an unhealthy vibration going on for a long time. They are not aware that their vibration was in opposition to what they truly wanted.  

There are people who are really good at creating wellness; however, it’s a lot harder to create from a place of serious illness such as cancer. But it is possible. There are people who develop illnesses that are never diagnosed.  And yet they are able to get over whatever it is.  Those are the people who are able to close the gap between what they want and what they are living.  They refocus and come back into alignment.

Abraham suggests that if they were in our shoes, they would be working on moving up the emotional scale long before being labeled “Terminally ill.”  For more information on Abraham’s Emotional Guidance System, see chapter 22 of “Ask And It Is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks.  Abraham teaches that there is no disease that is incurable.  We can get to where we want to be from where we find ourselves by maintaining a high vibration and staying “up” on the Emotional Guidance Scale.  It isn’t easy because people want to tell you about others who have had the disease; doctors keep doing more tests leaving you with the impression something is really wrong, and you learn about others who have died from the disease.  Just get a handle on your vibration while you are feeling good, and stay in that vibration.  Non-physical would like to zap us with worthiness and purpose because there is not a reason in this world for any of us to be sick.

What does having enemies do to us?  Anytime we make anyone or anything the enemy, it’s like putting up an umbrella that stops our awareness of the guidance we are being offered. What keeps us from being healthy is not the food we eat, it’s what we are thinking.  When we have non-gracious thoughts about our neighbor, boss, mother, father, etc. we are having negative thoughts that do not serve us.  They affect our vibration.  Instead, we need to start looking for, thinking about and talking about what feels good about those people or things.  Notice the way your body feels when thinking negative thoughts (depressed) versus when we are happy, feeling appreciation.  Start noticing the emotional factor which is the indication of your vibrational factor.

Be careful when listening to others or reading books by so-called experts.  They usually have no idea who you really are.  Start floating freely in a sea of well-being.  Let all your problems be wherever they are.  Leave them there.  Then watch what begins to happen to your body.

True healing power is knowing your wellness.  When you are not in your true healing power, you are needing healing.

What does momentum feel like when you can change the outcome? It feels like invincibility, clarity, satisfaction, certainty, security, empowerment and self-assuredness. What does it look like to others?  Arrogance, obnoxiousness, lunacy.

Discussion points from the group follow:
Our beliefs start with us as children based on what our parents taught us.
Conflict sometimes exists between medical science and our personal well-being.
Doctors don’t necessarily know what we know – that our inner beings are pure, positive energy and can and will heal us every time.
The moment we make someone our enemy we cut ourselves off from our guidance which provides our personal wellness.
Our inner being is always guiding us if we allow ourselves to stay in its flow.  It is the unconditional, pure, positive flow of the Universe.
Work with others of like mind in all areas of expertise to complete your circle of healers and thereby healing yourself.
Meditation is a beautiful avenue to communicate with all areas of your body.
Meditation stops all negativity and creates ease and flow with our body, mind, and system.

Mike shared his personal experience with cancer and how he beat it.  His comments are listed at the end of this blog entry and titled The Big C Stands for Change”. Mike feels he beat cancer by maintaining a positive attitude, using traditional medicine (surgery and chemo) and alternative therapies coupled with the law of attraction techniques and never owning the cancer.

A member asked for guidance on how to handle receiving a bad diagnosis and staying purely focused on what feels right.  Here is the group’s input:
A proper acid/alkaline balance prevents disease and helps.
Stay focused on what does feel good and feels right to you as you are your own authority.
Remember our cells regenerate and become completely new every three years.
Meditation helps to heal.
Pure positive prayer works.
Our bodies produce 500 million cells every day so we can heal ourselves.
We have more powerful leverage to become well from a relaxed state of being.
The power of community helps us connect to others of like mind.
Never intend, pray or act from a place of desperation or neediness.
Don’t talk to anyone who makes you go down into a negative space of worry or fear.
Best intentions are always the purest “at heart” and “at the soul”.
The highest frequencies like joy, humor, lightness, and happiness are feelings that bring us back to true healing.
A patient’s body is what heals itself. Not medicine, therapy, food or supplements.  Our bodies and our beliefs about our bodies are what heal.
Strong, positive faith, inner knowing and pure belief is true healing medicine.
Self-care and self-love can translate our bodies from disease to pure positive ease.

Another member asked for guidance in a situation where a loved one has a chronic diagnosis. How can I be there for them without focusing on their current reality?
Focus on what lifts YOU up, lights YOU up and feeds YOUR soul because you will be bringing in your shining disposition to lavish upon them.
Abraham says there is no disease.  There is only dis-ease from our own spirit.
Spirit mind treatments work beautifully to get you and your loved ones back to their healed, whole an healthy self.
Don’t give others advice on their disease unless they ask for it.
Hold your loved ones in a place of unconditional love, wellness, kindness, and joy because it brings your soul self and your human self together as one.
Laughter is the best medicine.
Watching funny movies lightens our minds and brings us back into our own true self.
Don’t be selfish with your loved ones.  Don’t ask them to stay around for you.  Let them go if that is their desire.
Don’t feel sorry or sad for people who are ill because they will feel your lower vibration.

Ramona read an exercise from the book “Chronic Pleasure” by Karen Lorre which helps keep us connected to Source:
“Get out a piece of paper or make notes on your phone or computer.  Write down beliefs that you feel lift you up and lighten you now.  If they really make you feel better, then you can read this list of relevant, light, raised up thoughts over and over. The more you read them, the better you will feel.  And you can add to them as you find new, happier thoughts.  This will become a list of wonderful, feel better ideas that you refer to any time you want to feel better.”

For our closing, Fatimata recited a closing prayer she wrote for our group.  It is reproduced in her new book, “31 Universal Spiritual Principles” based on the teachings of Michael Beckwith.  To purchase a copy and learn about her non-profit, visit https://sahelsage.org.https://sahelsage.org and click on "Book".

Our next meeting will be July 1.  David Minkin has offered to entertain us with one of his newest magic tricks he calls “Perseverance”.  If you have never seen David perform, you will see why Johnny Depp said of his magic “That’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen” and why David has the designation “International Champion of Magic.”

Here is Mike’s story about cancer and how he beat it.

The Big C Stands for Change

I had a Gastro Intestinal Stromal Tumor, GIST for short. It attached itself to my duodenum and spread from there to my pancreas, stomach and bile duct.  

At first, I freaked out. I thought of all the things I needed to get in order - our finances, update my will, notify my family and worst of all, tell my mother who was 93, going downhill with dementia and relying on me for her end-of-life issues.

I obtained copies of Lancet Oncology and read everything I could on GIST. I learned that most GIST patients have an operation called the Whipple and then die within 5 years. Most of the rest die within the next two years. Very few make it past that 7-year threshold.  If the patient does not have the operation, death comes sooner than 5 years. 

I joined a FB page called “Whipple Surgery Survivors”.  There was some good information, but a lot of the posts started out “I am sorry to report that my beloved…”  Yes, they survived the surgery, but didn’t survive the diagnosis.

Working with my patient advocate, Ramona, we decided having the operation would allow me a longer life than not having it.  While we decided to go with traditional medicine,  we blended in alternative therapies. 

It is impossible not to raise your vibration when you live with Ramona and somewhere along the line we decided I was going to be OK through all this.  Whenever anyone contacted me to say how sorry they were to hear the news, I said “I am going to have an operation to remove it and I am going to be OK.” Most importantly, I believed it.  In Abraham terms, I moved up the emotional guidance scale.  To this day I believe one’s mental state is the single most important factor.  For that reason, I dropped out of the FB page and stopped reading Lancet Oncology.

We were referred to a local cancer center.  They lined up several people for us to talk with – an operating room nurse, an oncologist, an insurance specialist, an anesthesiologist, and a social worker who was the most interesting.  She asked “How are you doing?” We said “OK”.  She said, “No, I mean how are you REALLY doing?”  We replied that we were really OK with where we were and what’s going on.  She said “But you have a rare cancer.” We replied we don’t personalize it.  It’s “The cancer”, not “My cancer.”  It went on from there.  In her defense, most people freak out and stay that way when they receive a diagnosis of cancer. After a few more exchanges the social worker gave us a reference book of services available to us and said “You will need this at some time. Don’t be afraid to call upon us when you do.”  We never even opened the book.  This was an Abraham example of projecting away from what we are told or read.

The chemo was a tablet taken for several months before the operation designed to shrink the tumor. Ramona came up with the idea of referring to it as “Pac Man”.   She downloaded the Pac Man theme on to her iPhone. As I would take the tablet, Ramona would play the Pac Man theme, run her iPhone over my abdomen, and we envisioned it eating up the tumor.  This lightened the experience of having to take chemo. 

I looked horrible, but it didn’t affect the outcome of wellness because of the momentum we had built up.  And, I simply never owned the cancer.

There are three types of genetic mutation causing GIST.  Two of them account for about 99.9% of death by GIST because they are fast growing. After the operation, the biopsy revealed I had the least frequently occurring type of GIST – the slow grower. I had evidence of it in 1998, 13 years earlier.  It’s now been over 7 years since the Whipple and a recent scan was clear.  The doctors keep looking, but they never find anything except good health.

Looking back I realize that the cause of the cancer in my abdomen was internalized issues eating at my insides – divorce and its after-effects when children are involved, and certain people I had worked with and could not completely forgive.  As Abraham said, I was sick and didn’t know it and my vibration was not good.

To us, the big C stands for change.  We changed our view of the illness, did not personalize it, and changed our emotions which raised our vibration.  I am convinced that if I believed the statistics I had read, the FB postings, the faces of several people who wished me well - the result would not have been as positive.
