LETTING YOUR DREAMS BE YOUR INSPIRATIONS

Ramona welcomed members and guests and asked the group to share their wins.

Eddie Conner provided another inspiring meditation.  And a BIG THANK YOU to Eddie for always taking notes so we can provide this blog as a review and for those who were unable to attend.

The opening video was “Receiving the Gift of your Inspirations” by Abraham Hicks. 

Ramona started the discussion by asking “Who has had a dream come true?” And “Who has dreams that haven’t come true?”.

Sometimes our dreams don’t come true because we have doubts and contradictions. It’s like having a train with two engines, but one is on the back of the train pulling in the opposite direction. Conflicting thoughts create fear, habit and insecurity because we are not thinking thoughts about what we want.  We are focused on thoughts about what we have, what is.  These are thoughts that don’t serve our purpose.

What happens when we share our dreams with the wrong people? Typically, they tell us every reason our dream won’t come true. It waters down our desires, dreams and goals. When someone tries to tell us why our dream won’t come true, remember to say to yourself “I DON’T CARE!” to release their negativity.

The same is true when we find ourselves telling our story over and over.  Everything we experience is an indication of our being, or NOT being, in alignment. The feeling of alignment has these characteristics:
         That we are in the flow.
         It feels good.
         Appreciation.
         Gratitude.
         Happiness.

As an example,  close your eyes and think of a dream you’ve had for a while.  It hasn’t happened yet…maybe you’ve given up on the dream. It’s like holding a glass of water. For a short time, it doesn’t feel heavy. But after a while, it can feel quite heavy.  The weight of the glass hasn’t changed.  The same is true of our dreams.  Holding on to them will weigh us down and generate other like-minded thoughts.
Some examples of limiting thoughts are:
         I’m not skinny.
         It’s too hard.
         I have bad luck.
         They’ll be jealous of me.
         I’m not smart enough.

So, how do we make our dreams come true? Make a plan but start general, e.g. “I plan to feel good today”. Plan to be in a place where ideas flow easily.  The better we feel, the more effective and better feeling every plan will be.  Then pay attention to emotions.  When they dip down, catch them, rebalance, take deep breaths, meditate, go outside for a breath of fresh air, take a walk.  Continue these activities as needed. Letting go of resistant thoughts will place us in the receiving mode.

Be ready to be ready. Take 15 minutes a day.  Reconnect, meditate, do something to quiet the mind.  The more we do it daily, the more we will be able to say “I’m ready to be ready.”  Ideas will flow.  We are not facing reality…we’re creating it.  And it all starts with getting ourselves into alignment.

The closing video was “Rampage – I like Feeling Good” by Abraham Hicks.

ANATOMY OF RELATIONSHIPS

Ramona welcomed the group and announced this was the 6-year anniversary of the Burbank Law of Attraction Meetup Group.  Kathy and Robin were honored – Kathy inspired Ramona to start the meetup group, and Robin has attended every meeting.  Then she had new members introduce themselves.

Eddie Conner inspired us with a meditation.  A big thank you to Eddie for always providing inspiring meditations and for taking notes of the meetings.

Ramona reminded the group that relationships are not only with those we love, but also with friends, people we work with or live near, etc.  She asked the group if all their relationships were good.  Relationships reflect aspect of ourselves.  Sometimes the things we see in others that we don’t like are reflections of things we don’t like about ourselves.  And, whatever we are living now is because we vibrated it into our own life experience.

The opening video was “The art of renewing your relationships”. 
Some members made the following comments about the video: 
-We are of no help to anyone when we dip into that “sorry” phase.
-Humor adds a positive light and can keep relationships going strong.
-Give to others only when coming from a good place.
-Offer guidance only when you feel good.

If someone is addressing you from a low vibration and complaining, etc., just say to yourself “I don’t care”.  It lightens up the spirit internally so we release negativity and allows us to not drop our vibration to their level.

Make lists of things we appreciate because it perpetuates more things to feel grateful for.  Appreciation is a form of love and makes everything easier in life.

When we feel negative about someone we should remember all the things that are good about that person because this places us in a feel-good frequency.

Stop focusing on what you don’t like and your energy will immediately turn around.

Count the good things; acknowledge the good things and focus on them.  This will strengthen your personal relationship with yourself and others.

Praying with a pure heart is a great way to flow energy.

Be aware of your emotional negative triggers and flip yourself back up to the fun, beautiful emotions of a high vibration.

Focus on every person’s value, gifts, strengths and positive aspects.  This places you in a higher, better relationship with yourself and others.

Sometimes when someone does something to irritate you, it may be that you see something in them that you realize is one of your own faults.

Not everyone is like-minded or capable of maintaining a high vibration, or may actually like complaining, etc.  Keeping a high vibration may result in some of our friends drifting away.  We refer to this as “vibrating them out of our lives.”


Everyone we know can be really high or really low based on our vibration.  Instead of holding your loved ones in their old space, reframe them and hold them in a higher space.

Staying in the “now” is important.  Staying in our core essence is easier when we choose to stay in the now.  Be appreciative; focus on what feels good; choose self-nurturing; be light.  Take care of yourself first because you set the tone for interaction with others.  If you notice a pattern within yourself that is not serving you, reestablish new emotional patterns.  Abraham’s step 5 is another way to stay in a feel-good place when we stumble.

Appreciation is sincerely the key to self-love and to loving others.  Love yourself first, then others.

Ramona did the envelope exercise where everyone wrote the names of two people with whom they have issues.  Then opening the envelope there were two slips of paper with the following:  “______________ You’re off the hook. My happiness depends on me!”  Then we tore them up and released them!

Live life to the fullest – we’re on the leading edge.

The closing video was “All that we share”.  


Our next meeting will be March 14.

BE THE ARCHITECT OF YOUR LIFE FOR 2017

Following the introduction of new members and first time attendees, EDDIE CONNER provided an inspiring prerecorded meditation.  Be sure to check out Eddie’s website at EddieConner.Com.

If you want a copy of Eddie’s meditation, send an email to Ramona at ramonaloa1@gmail.com and request a copy.  She will send it to you via dropbox.

Tonight Mike and Eddie were not able to join us so we do not have notes from the evening to share with you. What we can share is the Abraham video Ramona chose to open the evening’s topic:


We had a powerful open discussion on just how to stay connected this year so that we can experience our best year ever!

One of Abraham’s tools is a fun game called the ABC Game, which Carilyn Davidson shared with the group.  Here is a video explaining how that works – have fun with it!
  


Our next meeting will be February 7th we look forward to seeing you then!
