Seeing Cause and Effect In Action: Practicing Intuition

I was thinking yesterday on the connection between what I’ve been focusing on the past week, what I’ve been vibrating in harmony with, and what I’ve been attracting. I make a point of keeping track of things like that because it helps me practice my intuition. So here’s this week’s cause and effect story:  I get lots of requests for updates on the James Arthur Ray Sweat Lodge Deaths Matter so I’d taken time to post those.  I’d been re-reading Outrageous Betrayal: The Real Story of Werner Erhard from Est to Exile by Steven Pressman, and the author’s story smacked of the same vibe as the James Ray matter.

Did Someone Ask For Drama? When Friends On The Path Go Off The Deep End

I wrote earlier this week in Clash of the Egos: Battleground for the Spiritual Seeker about a little drama with a friend who got miffed at something I said.  In a simple misunderstanding, she’d taken something the wrong way and did a public blowup on my Facebook wall.  She posted some private Instant Message conversations between us to outline her evidence, but after some comments came in, she quickly made the link inaccessible.  It was clear by our IMs that she had simply misunderstood and became abusive for no reason.  By now she’d stirred up a dozen Facebook friends with her story and they were contacting me wanting to know how to access the link, so I put it up.  I talked to several of them, then did the blog post Clash of the Egos to let everyone know everything was ok.  People misunderstand and get ticked all the time.  It’s no big deal.  It’s just life.  We get over it and we get on with it.

Clash of the Egos: Battleground for the Spiritual Seeker

I often have flying and dancing dreams.  I love those.  I dreamed this morning that I’d been walking carrying a big wooden basket around me (imagine wearing a barrel and holding it up around you). It was very heavy to drag and I had forgotten what it was and why I was carrying it.  Then a wind came up and the big balloon that I had unknowingly been dragging behind me filled with air and I rose high, high over the rooftops.  It was an exhilarating ride and from up there, everything was so clear.  It was one of those dreams you want to last forever and wake up wanting to go back into.

When friends misunderstand, because we each see things as we are

I wrote the other day What do you do when friends misunderstand you and don’t want to play anymore? When friends misconstrue what you say, and feel you are coming down on them, being negative, judgmental, feeling superior and being a know it all?  YOU LET IT GO. You don’t hang on to it or try to sort it out or rehash it.  You let it go.   You focus your attention forward on something hopeful and pleasant. You remember it is not your job to fix or educate anyone.  You get yourself back in the vortex and move on. Continue reading

What do you do when friends misunderstand you and don’t want to play anymore?

What do you do when friends misunderstand you and don’t want to play anymore? YOU LET IT GO. You don’t hang on to it or try to sort it out or rehash it.

When friends misconstrue what you say and take something personal and cut you off? YOU LET IT GO.  It’s not about you.

When friends feel you are criticizing and coming down on them when you’re simply reminding them what works consistently for you to achieve what they wish to achieve? YOU LET IT GO. You focus your attention forward on something hopeful and pleasant.

What do you do when friends perceive you as being judgmental, feeling superior and being a know it all? YOU LET IT GO. You remember it is not your job to try to fix or educate anyone.

YOU LET IT GO. You get yourself back in the vortex and move on.

A day in the vortex, in the flow of well being and synchronicity

Yesterday I did my monthly drive to Ocala to bring magazines to Catherine Wendell from Ocala Ghost Walks. Cat makes sure everyone in the Ocala area gets Horizons and we get to catch up in person with what we’ve been doing the past month.  I left the house half an hour later than I meant to and 15 minutes north I realized I did not have my Ocala file with me.  The one with the maps and the piece of paper that had the magazine stack count on it – how many magazines I would be giving to each person I saw that day.  Drat.  But I did have my hard drive with me.  Cat reminded me there was a Staples store right next to Mother Earth Market, where we meet.  I took my hard drive into their copy center and they opened the file and printed my list out.

James Ray’s escalating patterns of abuse leading to sweat lodge deaths: Cassandra Yorgey interview with Lorena Bathey

In James Ray’s escalating patterns of abuse leading to sweat lodge deaths: interview with Lorena Bathey, Cassandra Yorgey does more than give an update on the James Ray sweat lodge matter.  She does more than give an interview with Lorena Bathey, who in a 2007 Spiritual Warrior Retreat in Sedona broke her arm as well as learned much behind the scenes information about James Ray and staff.  Yorgey brings to light the psychological undercurrent in the targeted subgroups who are being unknowingly led through an indoctrination process for the seller’s purpose.  Her article is not just to do with James Ray and not just to do with calling self proclaimed teachers and experts on their coercize tactics.  What Yorgey writes focuses on personal responsibility.  It focuses on being conscious, being fully aware of what you say and what affect it has on those who hear it.

And being aware when others are doing it to you, whether outwardly or covertly.

I say just be aware.

How to Write a Readable Article By Properly Using Paragraphs

I read lots of writers every day and I really appreciate someone who knows how to use paragraphs – it makes me want to read their work.  So you think I’d know how to write a readable paragraph myself, right? I tend to use paragraphs like I do thoughts: short blocks of thought with a lot of white space in between.  Before blogging made the scene, I wrote my daily thoughts into a journal, so I spent the first 40 years writing without editing.   Now finally I’m discovering how to do it.  Continue reading

7 Mindblowing Tips On Getting Established as an Expert In Your Field with No Competition

I was speaking recently with my friend Bonnie. Bonnie is a Facebook buddy but also a real life friend of a dozen+ years.  She’s always full of ideas for networking and promoting and she loves to help friends make the most of themselves.  Usually when Bonnie and I talk, it’s after church. The New Way POD has live music and the musicians and choir really rock.  So at the end of the service, my brain and my body are way over on the right hemisphere, dancing and singing for hours afterward.  Love drunk.  Bonnie, far more equal brained than I am, can hold a coherent conversation right afterward.  I, meanwhile, am just soaking up the vibe, and smiling is about all I can do.  And Bonnie, never superficial, is asking some remarkable questions she has been researching.
