I’m just back from a wonderful Thanksgiving break in Boston. My wife and I visited my father, my two kids, and my two new grandchildren. Four generations together gave me much to be thankful for, and reminded me yet again of that wonderful vibration of gratitude and appreciation. It’s from this emotional place that our personal creation process is at its best.
I urge you all to try and start each day of your life with a silent, verbal, or written recital of the many elements in your life that you are truly appreciative of.
One of my favorite segments during my speaking engagements is when I discuss that “Inner Radar” which we all possess. I usually begin by telling the story of a woman I met several years ago right after a speaking presentation here in the Denver area.
This woman in her early 40’s approached me with a big smile and began sharing all these wonderful aspects of her life including her children, her husband, her house, her job, her parents etc. Suddenly her smile vanished and she exclaimed that in spite of all these wonderful things she was not happy.
When I asked her what would make her happy there was stone cold silence and a tear came to her eye. She said she didn’t know because her entire life all she ever did was what others wanted her to do.......first her parents, then teachers, then spouse, then children, then church etc. etc. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
We all have what I call in my books an “Inner Radar”. You may call it intuition or gut feeling, but we have IT and this “Inner Radar” ALWAYS knows what’s best for us individually. If we all have it why don’t we learn to access and use it?
The answer is that most people have become zombies, walking around in a fog just reacting to the disaster of the day, be it global or personal. Becoming aware and communicating with this inner voice is one of the great joys of our human experience. We all come to this present incarnation with contracts to fulfill and a guiding energetic spiritual light to assist us.
We must practice stepping back from the noise, the news, even friends who keep us in a fog. Find that place of silence where your inner voice flourishes and learn to listen! One of my favorite speaking topics is that of relationship building. Rarely do you find someone successful in life and business that is not good at building lasting, successful, and profitable relationships.
I find that many people are good at keeping relationships going once started, but they get very nervous and uncertain during first introductions and often sabotage relationships before they even get off the ground. If you fall into this category I have a sure fire solution guaranteed to succeed.
Whenever you meet someone for the first time come prepared with personal questions to ask the other individual and fill the meeting with question after question. This technique both eliminates any awkward pauses, and gets the other person speaking about their favorite topic, themselves. As strange as this may sound, people will find you irresistibly fascinating if you show a genuine interest in them.
I have written often about the current state of the United States and world economy and the enormous unsustainable debt which keeps everything moving. I have read and studied much on the topic and the following video is one of the best pieces I have come across which explains the tenuous situation we are all in. At 19 minutes it’s a bit long, but something everyone should be aware of. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFDe5kUUyT0
Lastly as I wish you a joyous holiday season I know also that those New Year’s Resolutions are just around the corner. Please take the time to create some specific intentions on what you want your life to be in 2014 and beyond. In next month’s newsletter I’ll address the specific techniques in which we take intention to manifestation.
