Choosing Your Reality with Power

This posting is a compilation of two meetings – August 9 and 16, 2011.

Eddie Conner opened the meeting with a meditation. Visit his website www.eddieconner.com.

Our Skype guest was David Tillman, noted psychic, clairvoyant and actor. David explained how he gives power to his manifestation by pulling his energy to his heart chakra. Since our energies are dispersed to all the things affecting us in our daily lives, he makes sure his energy is grounded by pulling only his energy to his heart chakra. When grounded, he sends out his energy through his third eye and asks the Universe to allow his manifestation. To David it appears as a light beam emanating from his third eye.

David provided an example. When preparing for an audition, he sends the light into the audition room ahead of him. The light is filled with warm thoughts to connect with those he is about to meet. He feels his energy meet him at the door and knows if it is working when the people in the room are smiling and friendly as he enters. David’s website is www.psychicdave.com.

The meeting subject is “Choosing your reality with power.” We discussed how we can alter, shift and recreate our reality at will. Occasionally something or someone interrupts our vibration and we feel ourselves starting that slippery slope down, passing bad feelings, past discouragement, maybe even all the way to depression. These circumstances typically fall into one of the following categories: relationships, money, career or health. What can we do to pull ourselves up?

The answer is to recreate the vibration within ourselves that makes us happy. This can be achieved by listening to music, recalling a favorite scene, recalling an inspiring story or quote, laughing at it, or ignoring it. When emotionally moved by the good feelings these thoughts provide, the body releases serotonin which makes us feel good, boosts our immune system and contributes to our emotional health. If these simple steps do not work, we can accept it, appreciate it, or observe it – all without judgment. We can also send love and light to the situation, and surround ourselves with love and light for protection. Most important is to focus on what does work.

Call to mind someone who really pushes your buttons, a person who perhaps all too often crawls around inside your brain. Let that person crawl for a full minute. Go ahead and notice how you feel. Chances are you’ll feel constricted and uncomfortable, as thought of that person connect to intricate webs of related worries. Now stop and shift your mind to someone who you truly admire. Fully envision that person and allow all of her or his related qualities and feelings to fill your mind. Chances are that you will begin to feel more expanded, relaxed and happy.

Now consider how often we allow the button-pushers to dwell in our minds, rather than the ones we admire. Many people will spend more time on the former than the latter. Indeed research suggests that our minds tend to focus on the negative. By putting our attention on people who bother us, and activating all the neural networks associated with negative people, we become more like them. However, placing our attention on people we admire opens up a different set of neural networks, ones that release serotonin, that make us happy and help us embody those qualities in ourselves.

Here are some other thoughts that were offered as tools to create a new reality:

Think of something positive. If your positive thought isn’t perfect, just think of something that is more comfortable feeling.
Limit the amount of radio and TV news we listen to.
Listen to an Abraham CD.
Control what you can; let go of the rest.
Think about things that make you happy.
Watch funny videos on You Tube.
Tell a new story.
Do whatever makes you feel good, happy and free.
Remember Jerry’s story about having his photo taken with the Prime Minister.
Look forward – not in your rear view mirror. Forget the past. It has passed.
Ask yourself ‘How good can I be to myself today?”
Ask “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” This is a good way to change your day if you find yourself in a bad mood.
Ask “If you knew you wouldn’t fail, what would you want to do?”

Ramona shared a piece from Rumi entitled “Guest House”.

This human being is a guest house, every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

Input was sought about holding one meeting for the entire group at an outside location in Burbank. This would require charging a small fee, less than other Meet Up groups, to cover rental and equipment. Mike and Ramona will front the money for the equipment, and once they are reimbursed, the meeting fee will be reduced. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Email Ramona at rmucciolo@charter.net with your thoughts.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that three members of our Burbank group are spreading the word on the Law of Attraction through different means. Julie Perkins has a blog filled with Law of Attraction lessons written in her humorous style. Be sure to check it out. http://theyearoflivingjoyously.blogspot.com/.

Nikki has started a group for children and young adults.  LOA Youth provides motivating and empowering lectures, seminars and retreats for youth ages 25 and under focusing on the law of attraction, life choices & more!  http://loayouth.org/.

And Yael maintains a blog to record the moments that make your heart glow each day.  It is designed to encourage people to look only for what they want to see: love, humor and happiness. Yael encourages people to write and share their bright moments. http://silverwhitedoe.blogspot.com/.

Next meeting will be Tuesday, September 6, 2011. The location will probably be offsite, so watch our postings for the new location.
