We have two basic choices in life;
love or fear ... choose love!

Join Us Today In Giving Thanks

Every day let's be thankful for what we have and who we are.

Even though we may clutch our blankets and growl when it's time to get up, let's give thanks that we can hear ... for there are many who are deaf.

Even though we may keep our eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible, let's give thanks that we can see ... for there are many who are blind.

Even though we may cuddle in our bed and put off rising, let's give thanks that we have the strength to rise ... for there are many who are bedridden.

Even though the first hour of our day may be hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned and tempers are short, let's give thanks for all the times we experienced peace and joy ... for there are many who are in constant turmoil and their every move is being by dictatorial or oppressive governments.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced, let's give thanks for the food we have ... for there are many who are going hungry.

Even though the routine of our workday is often monotonous, let's give thanks for the opportunity to work ... for there are many who have no job or cannot work.

Even though we may grumble and bemoan our fate from day to day and wish that our circumstances were not so modest, let's give thanks for life itself.

And finally, for our older friends who may be suffering from aches and pains of arthritis in your hands, or having difficulty walking ... let us give thanks for all the years that we've enjoyed perfection in the movement of our limbs and in freeness from pain.

We cannot go back and make a brand new start ...
But we can start from now and make a brand new ending.

No Moving Parts ... No Batteries
Author Unknown

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees;
Inflation proof, nontaxable,
In fact, it's quite relaxable;
It can't be stolen, won't pollute,
One size fits all, do not dilute.

It uses little energy,
But yields results enormously.
Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorates your happiness;
Combats depression, makes you beam,
And elevates your self esteem!

Your circulation it corrects ...
without unpleasant side effects
It is, I think, the perfect drug:
May I prescribe, my friend ... the hug!
(and, of course, fully returnable!)

It's better to lose your pride to the one you love,
than to lose the one you love because of pride.

The Importance Of That Still Moment

~ by Michael Bonamassa, Sr.

Have you ever felt time stand still? ... a moment so sacred you wondered if you were dreaming? Or perhaps you can recall a time when you felt a profound sense of peacefulness come over you. We've all had moments like that.

My question is: "How often do you allow yourself to feel that good? or that relaxed? or that peaceful in your everyday life?" Take this little test ... just for fun:

As you lie in bed tonight just before falling asleep, ask yourself this question ... "What percent of my day today did I spend feeling peaceful, tranquil, and or free?"

Most of us, when we stop and answer this question, are quite surprised. For we realize much of our day is spent stressed, hurrying to get somewhere, worried about something, angry at the delay in traffic, losing patience in the grocery store line or worrying about the future events that haven't even happened yet ... all those "unknowns" that enter into our daily busyness ... "doings."

At the end of the day, when we take this little test, we come up with an astonishing 5 or 10% of our day (if that) when we can remember feeling some feeling of relaxation, peace or freedom. "WOW" is how most of us respond to this new realization.

Imagine what your days would be like if you were to feel the feelings of peacefulness, joy, freedom and deep inner peace at least 40 - 50% of your waking hours??? Think its impossible? That's ok. I did too at first. And then I learned differently ... and oh how my life began to change. Just imagine for a moment how your life would be different if you felt these feelings several times in your day.

This is the essence of one of the most powerful secrets to manifesting the things that we want in our life, and not those things that we don't want ... choosing to feel happy, joyful, free and peaceful more often during our day. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? But I'm here to tell you today that it isn't! How do you do this, you ask? Well, let me show you exactly how.

This powerful exercise, when practiced daily, will make a huge difference in your life and in your ability to manifest ALL of your desires in life. You need not do this now, but when your day's busyness can be put aside, take the time to do this and create the essence of your desires.

1. Find a comfortable place where you can relax and not be disturbed.

2. Place your awareness into your heart ... an awareness that what you are about to begin is going to change your life from here on out ... move this awareness from your head to your heart.

Hint: Place your right hand over your heart and allow your focus ... your attention ... to move from your head to your heart by saying to yourself ... "I AM an unlimited multi-dimensional powerful being of Light and Love, and I will create all that I desire in life." (a short affirmation)

3. Now, bring your heart's number one desire into your awareness. Ask this question from your heart ... "What does my heart long for?"

4. Imagine, envision and create your desire in your mind's eye as having already manifested ... as having already become real in your life. See it and feel it as real as you can.

5. Feel the feeling ... feel the feeling of your desire as already manifested, already real in your life ... feel the emotion that you would feel when this was happening.

6. Now, embrace this feeling. Feel this feeling and hold it in your awareness for at least 20 seconds.

7. Replace some of your daily busyness and let it go and TRUST ... trust that it has and will continue to manifest in your reality. Return to these feelings of your number one desire already manifested as much as you can throughout your day and feel the feeling fully.

Practice this exercise daily, as often as you can and I promise that you will soon see your desires become real in your life. The secret to this exercise is feeling the feeling you have as you imagine your desire already real. It doesn't matter if you are one who has a difficult time seeing in your mind's eye ... it's the intent from the heart that counts. Once you do this, you have reached the essence of your desire and it is here where the absolute magic begins ... where the Law of Divine Creativity and conscious creativity begins.

For when you are aligned with the feeling of your desire already being real, you will not only get your heart's desire, but everything else that supports the feelings you are feeling. People, places, experiences, and resources will begin to come into your life that align with these feelings as well. Manifesting thus becomes effortless.

Finally, as a last step, let us not forget the Law of Gratefulness. As an ending to this process of visualization, give thanks by proclaiming "Thank you! Thank you@ Thank you!" ... for what we give thanks to, we receive more!

Trust me ... it works every time! This, my dear friends, is the power of visualization ... my gift to you today. And the best part of it is that you needn't spend an hour, or 30 minutes, or even 15 minutes doing the exercise. All it takes is just

2 to 3 minutes ... that's how powerful it is. (The best time to do it is just before bedtime, but also do it as often as you can during the day because this power is exponential.)

Happy Manifesting!

Joy is a net of love by which souls are caught.

"The real meaning of life is your family,
the love that you have, the respect,
the traditional ways, and carrying on with them."
-- Ethel Wilson, COWICHAN

The family is the seed of the future. The family is the key to the transfer of cultural information. We should really take a look at how we are looking at our families. Are we treating each family member with respect? Are we passing on the traditional ways? Are we teaching the old songs? Are we participating in the ceremonies? Are we showing the family members how to pray? Are we encouraging each family member to be spiritual? Think about these things today.

My Creator, today, let me show respect to each family member.

Forgiveness is God's big eraser!

Today Is Full Of Possibilities And Treasures ...

Today offers a host of possibilities just waiting for you to discover them! The problem is that they may not present themselves as silver linings placed in front of you. They may simply be an article you may happen to read. Will you see them? or will you miss them?

Sometimes the possibilities are hidden in those things that we'd rather avoid than pursue ... in the problems that might arise during the busyness of your day ... in the interaction with people that you come in contact with that might be seeking your help ... even in the some news that your first tendency would be to shuck aside as useless.

Possibilities don't always come with glitter and shine. Just as the precious jewels and gemstones that are taken from the bowels of the earth underneath much dirt and grime. Their surface must first be cleansed before you can see them for what they truly are.

So, in today's travels, look for the possibilities that may be hidden from the surface. Expect to find these possibilities in those unlikely and unexpected places and events. If you seek them out without paying attention to the source ... without looking for the glitter and shine ... without it saying to you "Look, I'm a possibility!" Look for them in every happening, every moment, and you will be surprised how much you've passed aside in the past.

A Special Blessing to You and Yours ...
Until next week ...
These things, we warmly wish for you-

May your spirit soar throughout the vast cathedral of your being
And may your mind whirl cartwheels of creativity.
May each day bring you its own individual wonder
And may you break through the barriers of the past
by looking at the blessings of the present.

Love and Light,
Mike & Sandy
