Key #10 Magical Life: Be Here Now

Have you ever on a whim while driving home stopped at the local 7-11 for a drink and run into an old friend you’ve been thinking about but haven’t seen in a long time?  Isn’t that fun?!  When you follow the energy, it felt light to stop and get something to drink, and you walk right into a synchronicity the universe had possibly arranged…..

That’s what I’m talking about when I say Be Present!  Be Here Now!  Live with awareness of your intuition.  It makes life MoRE MAGicaL!

Some people call it choosing in 10 second increments, that works too.  In other words, you plan to drive home a certain way, you get an idea, a feeling, maybe an image of stopping somewhere.  So you do.  And you get MaGiC!

I love it when that gets created and I follow the energy.

I remember when I was in college on a semester study abroad, before the whole semester started I went a couple weeks early with some friends and went to Scandinavia, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.  We were staying at hostels, went from London to Copenhagen and then up to Norway, the four of us.  We met some cute guy about our age from Philadelphia at one of the youth hostels that wanted to go on the fjord ride not far away the next day.  My friends were planning to go further west to the coast and I didn’t know if I wanted to rush through all that as I was going to split off from my friends in a few days to go visit a  high school boyfriend of mine in Stockholm.  So I chose to go with this new guy from Philly on the fjord ride.

While I was on the fjord ride, I recognized a couple, but I couldn’t place them.  Several times I was going to approach them, but didn’t, couldn’t catch their eye, they were pretty into each other.

So I just kept turning it over in my mind, and when I saw the woman leaving the coach with a viola case in hand, all of a sudden it dawned on me who they were!  Music (piano and viola) professors at Luther College in Iowa, where I was had spent a couple of weeks studying piano with him four years prior!

So cool!  I LOVE SERENDIPITIES!

So I found them in the village after we got off the coaches and I HAD to talk with them now that I’d figured out who they were.  So fun!  They remembered me and what a coincidence to meet some fellow Iowans four years later in Iowa.  I almost studied piano, and he was one I was considering studying with.

So if I had NOT been IN THE MOMENT, if I had not followed the energy, doing the Be Here Now thing, I would NOT have had that MaGicAL experience!  It truly was great fun to talk with them and share our interest in the coincidence.

So choosing on intuition, on how you sense the energy…on how does it seem to you, you planned to do this drive, say, is it still a good direction?  What about now?  What about now?

Living in the moment, being present, Be Here NOW!  I invite you to use this, and to welcome it and play with it in your life.  I wonder how much MORE magic you will create!

Be Here Now.  Don’t stick with decisions and conclusions you made years ago where the winds of change have blown.  Would you stay a shorthand teacher, or teach typing on typewriters even though everyone else in the world uses computers, would your school even offer it if it’s not used?  Why would you make a decision or conclusion in your life and then stick it out if it’s not aligned with you now?  When it doesn’t work for you anymore? If it makes you miserable – we seem to think there’s no choice. There is! There is always another possibility!

Honor the present…..the moment…Be Here Now.

Key #11 Magical Life – Release Judgment!

Have you ever used judgment on your body?  When you look in the mirror at your face, do you have a litany of judgment running through your mind?  Oh, my hair’s an ugly gray, ugh, my cheeks are sagging horribly, ick! I look like an old turkey with my neck skin hanging down, my nose is too wide to be pretty, my lips are too thin for any beauty…..

Or do you look yourself in the eye and send yourself LOVE?  Unconditional, sweet love?  and smile?

Key #11 to a More Magical Life is RELEASE JUDGMENT – to not practice mean points of view, to yourself or others.

Have you ever felt fantastic after you’ve expressed some judgment toward others?  Or toward yourself?  Do you feel like you’re flying high?  Or does it shrink you?

Remember which key was it, #2?  The truth will make you feel lighter, a lie will make you feel smaller, heavier……

Which way does any expressed judgment make you feel?

I remember when I was a kid, I would feel lighter expressing some judgment, putting someone down initially, to be a part of the group, to fit in, to show them I could be just as nasty as them……but after that was expressed, I would feel like crap!  My stomach twisted uncomfortably, I had shrunk and I felt bad, and then I judged myself for being mean to try and be accepted by others, and got even smaller.

Judgments.  Nasty they can be to ourselves and our bodies.  Our lovely bodies.

Judgments, Nasty they can be to our soul.

Say, for example, you are trying to build a business, and so you have some targets of how many people and you get half of that in you first telecall, and no one signs up for your offer.  You give as many people as want it something free, and then nobody signs up for you next thing, be it a class or coaching or whatnot.

You can judge yourself as not being smart enough, not being good enough, not being aware enough, and that you are, thus, a failure, or you don’t know what you’re doing and you might just talk yourself out of even trying next time.

But remember, does judgment create more energy or cool things?  ‘

NO!  Judgment STOPs the ENERGY! It collapses with

crap and into crap.

So whenever you hear yourself start the judgment roll, STOP!!!!!  No MORE JUDGMENT!!!

stop handDestroy those judgments and be in allowance, of yourself and others.

Releasing judgment will help you stay expanded, will help you to be more of your potent being.

If you are ready to step into your greater potency than you ever have before, check out some one-on-one coaching with Eileen.  Are you tired of playing second fiddle to the rest of you family?  Giving so much but forgetting YOU in the picture?

This is Water – Our Choices Create

Have you seen this video This is Water?

Your choices create your reality.

Choose to think differently.  Choose to be open.  Open to possibilities.

Years ago I was taught that this is a free will planet.   We each have the free will to make our personal choices.  Your choices create your responses, they also create possibilities.  What you are open to, you can receive.

If you do not see the handsome, brunette man next to you in the checkout line because you are only looking for a tall, blonde man that looks like Sting, rather than someone who would nurture you and with whom you could have fun, you will miss that.  You will be closed, you will not be aware that he could be a possibility of a friend, a connection, perhaps even the lover you are searching for.

If you perpetuate this thinking, you will retell your story to yourself to prove you are right, that there “aren’t any guys out there for me…”

How many areas of our lives do we do this?

Our choices create our reality.  Our choices create the possibilities.

Our choices create the way we not only experience the world, but our awareness of it as well.

Everyday can be sacred.  Everyday can be a mystical experience.

What will you choose?

The capital t Truth – real knowledge has everything to do with awareness.

This is Water.  Your choices create your experience.

Interested in choosing MORE EASE? In choosing with Greater awareness?

Unleashing and Unlocking Your Authentic You!

“When they push, when they pull, tell me can you hold on? When they say, you should change, do you lift your head high, and stay strong, do you give up, give in, when your hearts cryin’ out that it’s wrong? Will you love you for YOU at the end of it all?” (from Soar, by Christina Aguilera)

I’m guessing that most people on their deathbed do not regret taking risks, and being themselves more authentically, of following their dream.  They, instead, regret that they haven’t done as much as they wanted to, they played small, they didn’t risk, they didn’t ever follow that dream.

Are you truly being your authentic self?  Do you ever play small?  Are you creating everything you desire in your life?

I, Eileen – which means light – I will identify and Illuminate three things for you:

IDENTIFY 3 ways you may be playing small AND

ILLUMINATE you with three tools for getting out of your own way and choosing that bigger you, that authentic YOU unleashed!

You will then be able to use these three tools in your daily life to

Unleash and Unlock your Amazing, Authentic You this new year!

Are you ready?

#1)  What if you knew the truth for you by checking in with your energy, your body, how it makes you feel?  The sensations of your body, or the smile or frown on your face, perhaps?    So would that mean you would NOT need to look outside of yourself for your truth?  You could trust your own inner wisdom?

Truth will make you feel lighter, expansive, and a lie will make you feel heavier, contractive.

Example:  Truth chills – have you ever experienced these?  Where you just KNEW that was the truth!  Or, when a comedian gets you to chuckle, it’s usually some truth about ourselves we’re discovering.

#2)  What if you were 1000x more psychic and aware than you ever realized you were?  What if you were constantly being imbued with other people’s thoughts, feelings, emotions, on a weekly, daily, hourly basis?

Example:  I noticed every time I was around another facilitator friend of mine, that I got nervous, I doubted my ability, I wasn’t sure of myself. …I started to think she made me nervous…..and then I remembered, oh, yeah, that tool of mine,……

Tool is:  Who does this belong to?  Is this mine or someone else’s thought, feeling, or emotion?  If it lightens up at all, it is NOT YOURS, you are picking up on someone else’s energy.  It will lighten up and go away.  Use it daily.  Use it for every thought, feeling and emotion you have.  You will be surprised at what is NOT YOURS!

This is a highly valuable tool.  Use it only if you dare to see how empty your mind could be.

#3)  Stop Judging YOU.  Have you ever judged an action of your own to be stupid, you were embarrassed to death, and then you wanted to shrink and hide?  What if you let that go, you said, hmmn, you know, my opinion is just an interesting point of view.  Maybe it’s not right or wrong, a good choice or a bad choice, OK, cool, that didn’t work very well, let’s try something different.  What else is possible here?

What if you recognized that every choice you have ever made has led you to right where you are now, and that, thankfully, you were grateful for the path you have made.  So, instead of judging yourself as an idiot (or a victim) for the things in your life that aren’t working as well as you’d like, you said, huh, ok, cool, you stopped the judging, recognized it as just an interesting point of view, and now what?  How do I change this?  Ask questions to help open yourself to new possibilities?

3rd tool:  No judgment, so see everything you had a judgment of as “Interesting point of view” or other people’s judgments, just an “interesting point of view/”  This will allow you to open up to more possibilities.

These tools, believe it or not, will assist you in living more authentically YOU, unleashing and Unlocking the bigger playing field YOU!!!  By being less worried about what other people think, you can trust your own inner wisdom, your knowing.  You can stop thinking and being other peoples’ thoughts and emotions, being more YOU.  Plus, you can stop judging and limiting yourself, and instead be open to what else is possible?  Stop playing small.  Unleash and unlock your amazing, authentic self!

“What are you waiting for?  Spread your wings and fly!”

What if the Question were your Magic Wand?

What if we create our own reality?  With every thought, feeling, sensation, emotion, and action we choose, we create our own reality?  What if the Question were your very own Magic Wand?

Have you noticed the type of questions that empower, that create, that give you more possibilities?  Questions that start with “What if?”  or “What would it take for____?”  “What else is possible?” and “How does it get any better than this?” are two of my favorite questions to use.

Questions that start with “Why?” are more often looking to the past, or looking to blame something or someone (including ourselves and making us wrong).  “What if?” opens up possibilities.  Watch the questions you choose to use, and if you’re looking to blame others or yourself,looking to come to a conclusion, which collapses the molecules down, looking for an answer, rather than what else can I create here?  What else would work for me?  What would be fun for me?

Science, particularly Quantum Physics, has found that the observer has an effect on the experiment.  The observer collapses the multi-positional quantum particulate into one location.  From multiple possibilities to one.

We have an effect on our environment.  You might agree that, yes, I have an effect on my kids, I have an effect on my friends and family, even my dog or cat, and yes, even my plants, with my thoughts, if you have seen the amazing Russian scientific experiments with love, hate and plant growth.  But inanimate objects?  Like the earth?  Water?  Molecules?

Professor Masaru Emoto’s water crystal experiments are amazing!  Have you seen these?  He wrote the words “thank you,” “love and gratitude,” and “hate” on pieces of paper and taped them to bottles filled with water.  Then he froze these and took pictures of the water crystals that were formed by the various labeled water.  The hate one couldn’t even form a crystalline form!  The Thank You one was very elegant, the Love and Gratitude very full and detailed.  Beautiful!

The energy of the word was transmitted to the water!  The water was deeply affected by the various words, typed on thepaper and taped to the bottles!

So what does that mean to us in our daily lives?  Is there an inherent consciousness in the atoms?  Is there an impact in our daily lives with our thoughts, our words & deeds, our energy?  What if we are wizards, and the Universe is here to respond to our every command?  Or our thoughts, directed energy, and deeds?  What if “Ask and you shall receive?” is a truth?

What if by asking of the Universe, of the molecules, we direct the energy and it will use quantum entanglements to bring us possibilities that we are asking for?  What if when we come to a conclusion, it stops the energy of all the things set into motion, just like in quantum physics, and the field collapses into one possibility?  What if by asking open ended questions, we keep the energy flowing?

When you find money on the ground, even if it a little amount, what if you pick it up and be in gratitude, communicating to the Universe you appreciate this gift, and even kiss it multiple times and say “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” and put it in your pocket and say “What else is possible, how does it get any better than that?”  What do you think that would do?  Let the universe know you’d like more of that wonderfulness?

My challenge to you is to try it out.  Ask for money, Ask for the things you desire.  Ask for what else is possible and how does it get any better than this?  You can use it for anything.

What if you were the wizard of your life?  What if gratitude followed by open ended Questions were your Magic Wand?  I suggest you watch your words, keep open, asking, and receiving, and see what magic you can create!

If you received a million dollars every year, what would you create?

golden-coin-stacksEver wanted to be a philanthropist?

If you had a million dollars every year to spend on whatever you choose, what would you do with it?

  What if you received $10 million each year?  Does that open it up even more?  What about $100 million?  Feel how large that got?  That’s almost like no limits, huh?

What would you create in your life, what would you choose for you, and what would you gift to others if money were not holding you back?

Would you create something for your community?  Would you create something for the world that is different than what is available now?

What are your passions, what inspires you?  What could you do with that kind of money every year to contribute to the world?  What would you desire to create?

If money were not stopping you, what would you desire your life to be like?  What would be your bliss?

Is there something you’d like to contribute to the world?  Something for your family?  Your friends?  Would you like to create art?  Music, dance, theater, books, somehow share your ideas?  Or would you be interested in funding or doing research?  Or creating an invention?  What ideas do you have that would be fun for you to explore?  What if you could use your life on earth to create and generate knowledge or creativity?  What if you could stimulate love?  What if you could create safe havens for the destitute?  What sustains you?  What enlivens you?  What enriches you and your life?

Do you see anything in the world that you would like to change, to improve somehow?  What is it?  What one or two things would you like to change?

You see, the reason most people do not create the life of their dreams is they don’t realize they can.  They’ve created their life not necessarily as choice, but as reaction, and obligation.  Many people use the lack of money as their limitation.  It is the proverbial excuse for not having things better in their lives.

I love to empower people.  If money weren’t an issue for me, and I had a million dollars, $10 million dollars, or even $100 million coming to me every year, I admit I would live differently.  I wouldn’t have “not enough money” as an excuse.  I would dream bigger.  I could be lofty with my goals, my targets.  I could get out of just getting by, making a living, trying to get ahead, and shift that to thriving and creating what I truly would like.

What if everyone could be in the thriving energy?  What if every day you could create from something bigger?

What if “ask and you shall receive” were actually true?  What if we actually only had to ask and be willing and able to receive, from the molecules, the universe, source, God, the angels, the quantum particulates, the higher self, or wizards and genies, from the magical creative world in which we live?  What if question, play, and curiosity were our magic wands?  Or what if by asking for more, you receive, created and generated more?  What if by just asking, “What else is possible here?” more possibilities were actually seen and created?

If we know from Quantum Physics that the photons will actually be in multiple places at once, and that when the observer looks at the photon, it will collapse into a single position, what does that tell us about our effect on the observed?  If we stay more in play and questions, more possibilities actually are created.

Our thoughts affect our reality.  We create our reality.  What if by playing in the quantum field of limitless money, we could create more ease with money and more of what we would like to see in the world?  What if by playing with this question EVERY MORNING, we could create total joy and freedom with money AND be open and willing to receive MORE?  What if by asking these questions and playing with them every day, we actually found our passions and created more in the world, not letting our lack of money, stop us?  What if we stopped utilizing it as an excuse?  To create as if we had all the money in the world…..and then see what happens, who steps in, what else is generated and created in the world and what are the infinite possibilities?

What if we actually stimulate the universe to bring us more money by playing and living in the joy of creating?  What if we could actually amplify and actualize more of what we’d like in this world?  In our lives?

If money were no issue, what would you generate and create in your life?  Dream big!  Act on your dreams, as if you can create it, and see what unfolds!  I dare you!  Take a week, and every day, imagine what you would be and do if you had $100,000,000 drop in your lap every year.  See what you would like to create in your life and if you can change what’s stopping you.  Choose it, ask questions, and see what possibilities emerge!

How psychic and aware are YOU?

How much of what you think and feel is truly yours?  Do you realize how much of an “awareness of awareness unit” you are?  Have you had some emotional intensity this month?  How sensitive are you?

What if 98% of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions were what you were picking up from the collective?  From your spouse?  From your friends?  From the earth?  Would you have more ease?  Less mental chatter?  Less confusion?

I have been more and more amazed at acknowledging and recognizing how many (MOST) of the thoughts, feelings, emotions I used to believe were mine ARE NOT!  Like almost all of them!  I get so keyed into some people’s thoughts I think they are mine, I can’t even see my own opinion, even though I know it is different.  If you think or feel a certain way when you’re around someone, like every time you’re around them, do you think you might be picking up on their energy, thoughts, feelings, emotions?  Just maybe?  😉

The tools of asking “Who does this belong to?” or “Is this mine or someone else’s or something else’s?” are INVALUABLE!  If it’s not yours, it should get lighter and actually go away.  You just might want to try it for three days to see how much it could contribute to your awareness.

IT IS THE FIRST THING TO ASK about any thought, feeling and emotion you have.  This is a great way to get out of REACTION and coming from ACTION, choice, and then actually creating what you’d truly desire in your life!  Happy Creating!:)

 

Did I say that?

Do you ever notice your words?  I’ve been noticing when my students, clients, colleagues, friends, sister, kids, spouse, and myself say “I don’t know.”  It can be after we’ve spoken a lot of words about something that is going on in our life, giving some keen insights, and then we DISEMPOWER ourselves with an, “I don’t know.”

Then again, you’ve probably NEVER done that! 😉

What do those words do?  Do they keep you from actually knowing what you do know?  From seeing what you could see?  From perceiving what you could perceive?  Have you ever said what you did know but were a little scared of what the person might think of you, so you softened it, making yourself less potent with an “I don’t know?”

What if we DO KNOW?  What if when we say, “I don’t know,” we actually cut off our awareness of that which we could have awareness?  Did you ever try to “fit in” with your classmates?  Your friends?   The molecules respond, I’m telling you.  If you have ever tried to fit in, to dumb yourself down in the past, to be like everyone else, did it work for you?  Was it fun? Light? Expansive?

Be aware.  Be in your awareness.  When you hear the words, “I don’t know” come out of your mouth, can you please stop that?  Would you be willing to change it?  Maybe you could say, “I’m not aware of it at this time.”  Or, ask yourself, “what do I know?”  or “What can I perceive here about this situation?” or “What can I receive from the energy around me?”  or “What can I acknowledge here that I have been unwilling to acknowledge before?”  The Universe, the molecules, everything will respond!  Just ask and it shall be given! Also, it doesn’t always look like what you expect, either!

 

What Can New Brain Science Tell Us About the BARS?

Have You Heard of Running Your BARS? What Can New Brain Science Tell Us About The BARS?

12 October 2012

By Andrea Lazenby

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Twenty five years ago a weird man named Gary Douglas channelled some information about touching points on the head and how that could change electrical brain function.

Ten years later, science discovered that the points he called “joy” and “sadness” correlated with the experience of those emotions.

Several doctors who are experts in biofeedback—one psychologist, one chiropractor—have reported changes in their brainwave function when receiving the bars (Access Consciousness).  They reported changes from beta through alpha to theta, the relaxed state just short of sleep.

Now Newsweek magazine, in a cover story called “Money Brain,” tells us more about research into localization of different functions in the brain.

In tune with the times, Newsweek applies this information about addiction generally to the American addiction to spending.  The same information really applies to all aspects of addiction and choices of short-term versus long-term gain.

The areas of the brain that scientists are now localizing as connected to addiction are the ventral striatum, deep in the brain, and the medial pre-frontal cortex just behind the forehead.  Using functional MRI machines, researchers tracked electrical brain activity when subjects were presented with a choice of receiving money now or in the future.

In people who are “spend-it-now, to-hell-with-tomorrow,” the electrical activity in these areas diminished when they were asked to postpone gratification.  The more they were asked to wait, the more the electrical activity in their brains dropped.  In other people, activity in the two areas was the same whether they were about to receive money now or in the future—suggesting they were equally happy either way.

Applying this information to what we know about the bars can show us some interesting information about what actually happens when the bars are run.

Applying this information can expand what running the BARS are actually capable of doing and generating change in our brains, and therefore change patterns of behavior and ultimately our lives.

What about that ventral striatum deep inside the brain?  Is it stretching things to say that the bars can reach that spot also?  Consider this—it’s just underneath the bar that is called ‘aging toaster’.  The description of aging toaster in the bars book says it extends three inches into the brain. Some bars facilitators describe it as a “toaster” into which you could fit a soda cracker.  Many people receiving the bars report a sensation like someone is actually sticking their fingers deep into their skulls—even if they can feel the person lightly touching the top of their head!

It’s not really that much more farfetched than science, either. While original experiments mapping the function of regions of the brain was done using needles, science is now doing studies about localizing brain function using the far less invasive transcranial (across the head) magnetic stimulation.  If magnets can affect brain function—and they do—then surely the electric nature of human touch affects it also.  The reports of the bio feedback experts on the changes in their own brainwaves suggest this is so.

Isn’t it interesting that the part of the brain affected by the aging toaster controls our ability to make intelligent choices that actually create the future we say we would like?  If we did more of this, would we age less?  Does diminishing this function contribute to aging?

On a Clear Day….

70+ miles to the south..view from our deck of Pikes Peak

On a Clear Day, Rise and look around you, and you’ll see who you are.

On a clear day, how it will astound you, that the glow of your being outshines every star.

You’ll be part of every mountain, sea, and shore,

You can hear, from far and near, a world you’ve never heard before.

and on that clear day, on that clear day, you can see forever and ever and ever and evermore.

—Alan Lerner

I love these lyrics.  To me, they are talking about the connection we have inside with our amazing, beautiful, wonder-filled inner being and the magic of the world around us!  This magic is inside all of us!  We are all amazing, magical beings, with infinite potential, all co-creating a potentially amazing, marvelous world, together and individually.   This world is like a heaven for creating, our thoughts creating our reality, our actions creating things around us, our actions together creating larger things together, our interaction with nature, the world, all creating other amazing interesting things.  It’s endless, and yet, integral to this world.

You can NEVER NOT be creating.  In other words, we are ALWAYS creating.  Even by not choosing, we create something.  Or by thinking we don’t have a choice, that it’s a necessity, something we do in our life, that creates something else.  The beauty and magic of this world is how it’s designed, how it works, how we all affect our lives, our bodies, our health, our world, and by being more and more aware of this, we can choose things that really contribute to us, our lives, and what we truly do desire to create, to see, to live, to be.

To me, a clear day is when I recognize my Infinite Being, my inner self, my spirit, soul, whatever you want to call it, and live from that space, live from that acknowledgment, that beauty, joy, wisdom, love, that integrity, awareness, and appreciate all of it.  Appreciate it in myself, my life, and others, acknowledging that everyone is a master creator in their own right, in their own awareness,  that we all contribute to each other simultaneously and can enjoy this world together.
