It is All Unfolding Perfectly

This morning, as I was taking a nice forty-five minute jog, I had a really good feeling. I wasn’t concerned about what the feeling meant. I wasn’t concerned about what action to take to “make use of it” or something. It just felt good, and I was content to enjoy it. In fact, I have been feeling this inspiration for awhile now, over a week, to be specific. A sense of well-being, of excitement even. I haven’t had a clear plan yet of what to do about it, but there’s…

Populate Your World with What You Want

Reading excerpt for tonight: Why does Saying No to It Mean Saying Yes To It? Your vibrational Universe has the Law of Attraction as its basis. That means that your Universe is about inclusion. When you give your attention to something that you desire and you say yes to it, you are including it in your vibration. But when you look at something you do not want and you say no to it, you are including it in your vibration. When you give no attention to it, you do not…

Eventually Water Always Wins Out

This worked last week, so I’m gonna try it again. Here’s a quote from “The Vortex,” by Esther and Jerry Hicks: A belief is only a thought that you keep thinking–it is only the beliefs that you hold that keep you from the things that you want. The Vortex, p221 Discuss: I have heard Abraham say this many, many times. I love the idea of changing my beliefs to allow things I want. I admit, sometimes I still have a “belief” that it can be difficult to change beliefs :(.…

Hey, Mr. Investing Junkie, Lay Off the Rat Poison!

Recently I have spent a lot studying websites like portfoliocharts.com and portfoliovisualizer.com. First, let me say these are fantastic sites. I often find myself enjoying their rich wealth of data about the past returns of various investments, and the historical characteristics of different portfolios. At the same time, it seems that I have crossed the line from doing enjoyable research to something… else; namely, trying to find out what the “perfect portfolio” is 🙁 This might seem valuable or logical to do, but I feel as though I have fallen…

You Cannot Criticize Yourself to Success

This is from “The Vortex,” a book by Esther and Jerry Hicks: Whenever you criticize, or push against, anything, you hold yourself outside of your Vortex. Flawed premises hold people outside of their Vortices of abundance and prevent them from the ease and Well-Being that they deserve. You cannot “criticize yourself ” to success. You cannot “condemn yourself” to Well-Being. The negative emotion you feel , in your disappointment, anger, and condemnation, is the indication of the opposing thoughts within you. You are opposing your success. You are opposing your…

Everything You Ever Want

Everything you ever want is available if you will just cease thinking about all the things you don’t have. If you will just clear your mind and think instead of lovely things: things that inspire you, things that make you feel happy, things you like. If you could just re-focus, and shift to the subjects that inspire you, the uplift you, and just stay there, you could find such light, such wonder, such happiness. You would be amazed! Try it out, see what happens. 🙂

“Confused Mess” vs. “Having it Going On”

I have an ongoing preoccupation with the “aligned-ness” of my thoughts. That is, I think a lot about how my thoughts feel to me. This is very helpful, as it is helping me identify when my thoughts are on the right track–that is, in alignment–and when they are… uh… not. Recently an interesting thing happened to me around this. I happened to be running. In quick succession I thought about two different topics in my life* that are important to me. It occurred to me that I had basically the…

Leave Everyone Else Out

None of you came forth with the intention of listening to anyone outside of you. Every one of you knew that life would cause you to expand, and that that expanded being would call you, and that when you go in the direction of that expansion that you would feel good. And you planned on leaving everyone else out of the equation. You really did! Abraham-Hicks, in this Youtube recording I just love this quote. I heard it this morning as I was eating breakfast. I’m pretty sure I have…

Progress is Inevitable

This morning at the cafe I was writing about yesterday’s triumphant running experience which, to summarize, was my third time running 20 miles, yet my first truly satisfying 20-mile running experience. As I sat there writing, the following thought occurred to me: You are seeing the inescapable fact of progress towards what matters to you when you have a desire and have no real resistance. Progress is inevitable! The value of this thought was immediately clear to me. Let me explain. Last year, I set my sights on running 20…

It’s Not the Subject (It’s How It Feels)

I have written a lot (as in A LOT A LOT) on this blog about delighting in things that I enjoy. Well, recently, I have been blissing out thinking through some adjustments I am making to my investing strategy going (this has not been unlike a similarly-intensive thinking process I wrote about last year.) To be more specific, a week and a half ago I shared my insights gained from investing this year. Doing that mental work naturally got me thinking about how I want to invest in 2021 (and…
