This is the post excerpt.

Susan Blog Welcome 2

 “Susan, the wonderful work you are doing encourages us to do more to promote this awesome task of bringing peace and healing to many individual lives, families and entire nation.  You’re doing an amazing job for many decades with this awesome organization and keep it up Mrs. Susan!!!”
— David Owusu; AH in Kumasi-Ghana, Western Africa  2018

“Love your positive energy.  Looking forward to following.  You have so much wisdom to share.”   — Lois Hancock, Former R.N. at University of Michigan         

Do you get annoyed by some people and sometimes, everything? 
In Attitudinal Healing (AH), and many other “Truths”, we learn to understand that once we get on the other side of irritation / fear, miraculous incidences can occur, and limiting beliefs and blocks to love can fade while emotional symptoms are diminished and often disappear.

Then peace can enter your being no matter what is going on around you…no matter what you are doing or who you are interacting with.

Here’s to all of us raising our consciousness for kinder, more peaceful relationships and a more wholesome, awesome world.

What will I Learn, over time, from this Awesome Attitudes 2 D-Stress Blog?

  • Recognize harmful patterns of thoughts, attitudes and behaviors and negative reactions to people and circumstances in daily life and how to see them differently.
  • You can release stress that causes suffering from hanging on to old thought patterns and habits and make room for joy and freedom from stress and fear.
  • What you think about expands in your life…your thoughts create your experience.
  • How you can change your mind, change your attitudes, change your stress, and change your life to choose peace over conflict and love over fear.

 My Purpose and Messages

Welcome to this Awesome Attitudes Peace Blog.  It is no accident that you are here.  It is great to have you, just the way you are.  You are beginning this New Year of 2018, filled with unlimited potential and possibilities.  I want to encourage you and give you new hope to live a happier, less stressed way of living.  This is a new day in your life.  STARTING JANUARY 2018.

Are you stressed…like this kitty cat?  Do you feel frustrated, angry, sad, or more?  Thank you for joining me on this marvelous journey to create a community where every person can develop Inner Peace by reducing stress via Love based Attitudes at all ages.  When you KNOW how to make choices to enhance your life and live with a change in attitudes from a fear base to a love base you live in more freedom and inner peace…and a state of consciousness that allows for connection and so much more, and to live with less stress.  Our purpose really is to live in love, inner peace and oneness.

This Awesome Attitudes Blog for Peace will initially be using the Miraculous 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing based on mental health / psychological and spiritual ideologies …PLUS much more from many wise truth-seekers and Masters, Collective Consciousness…so every person can expand Inner Peace and reduce stress via these Love based Principles.  I have learned from many: Johnathan Livingston Seagull, Buddha, Gandhi…Dr. David Hawkins, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky…up to Oprah, Deepak Chopra, and my “main man” Jesus, as well as family and friends, and many more during my whole life and especially the last 30 years with my intention for more openness and expansion in my thinking. 

“Our only goal is Inner Peace.”, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky / Founder of Attitudinal Healing

What is Attitudinal Healing?

I have volunteered for the Metro Detroit Center for Attitudinal Healing (one of many Centers around the world) for about 25 years and have been the Executive Director for the past few years.  We recently “closed our doors” here and I just “know” I have to continue to write about these principles and like-wise philosophies…it is my purpose, now…so here I am!  (Learn more in About Me.)  

Attitudinal Healing is a cross-cultural method of healing that helps remove self-imposed blocks such as judgment, blame, shame and self-condemnation that are in the way of experiencing lasting love, peace, and happiness. It is based on the belief that it is not people or experiences outside of ourselves that cause us to be upset. Rather, it is our thoughts, attitudes, and judgments about them (out influences) that cause us distress.

Health is defined as inner peace and healing as the letting go of fear. These are guiding principles in this groundbreaking work in personal, collective, and global transformation.

The approach and philosophy is based on universal principles and forgiveness. People of all ages, beliefs, walks of life, and cultures benefit from the practice of Attitudinal Healing.  From www.ahinternational.org.

The 12 Principles of AH benefit people because they help to expand our perspectives beyond normal consciousness and thinking into a more positive way on how to respond to others and life situations.  We learn that we can make the choice to enjoy a more peaceful, worry-free and loving life.  See the 12 AH Principles at: http://www.ahinternational.org/images/stories/content/downloads/the_principles_attitudinal_healing_english.pdf

THE POWER OF CHOOSING LOVE

THE POWER OF CHOOSING LOVE

WE DESERVE LOVE

When you think of love, do you believe you deserve it?  I think a challenge is that some people close themselves off from giving or receiving love.  They have been conditioned by someone or something else that they cannot live the bright light of a loving life…that is NOT the truth.  In that case, they are told “lies” and this blog is here to help change that. 

Conditional love is NOT real love…when someone says or acts like love depends on how you are.  Unconditional love is without expectations and is not dependent on anything; any situation or action.  Now, this is not always easy to do, but it can be one’s goal…and keep being mindful of it; forgive ourselves as we fall short and do better next time.  If someone is conditional with their love and does not have the intention of trying to live an unconditional life, then perhaps it is time to end that relationship in order to live your best life full of love. *

You are a unique and amazing person and there is no one like you.  So, choose love for yourself…just believe it and see how your life opens up to more bliss, less fear and more peace.  Choose to thrive and live with support for your greatest good and highest healing.  Live your dreams and your passion…the richness of LOVE!

I am loved, I am loving, I am lovable.  This is grounded in truth!

 

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ― Gautama Buddha

Sunrise

IN THE BEGINNING

Here are more thoughtful words and sage wisdom from Grand, Spiritual Masters throughout ages.  Love has been the major topic for centuries; the basis of our existence…and LOVE NEVER ENDS!

You have always been full of love and always will be.

Love never fails….  When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things….  And now abides faith, hope, LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE.
 1 Corinthians 13; Bible

 

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.― Sophocles

Where there is love there is life.Mahatma Gandhi

 

Now let a new perception come to me.
Father, there is a vision which beholds all things as sinless, so that fear has gone, and where it was is love invited in. And love will come wherever it is asked. ― ACIM L#313

Enjoy yourself, spend time with your family and friends and do the things you love. When you’ve fallen in love with what makes you unique and wonderful, then you’ll be truly ready to receive more of what you’re feeling. 

LOVE RELATIONSHIPS

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were. ― Kahlil Gibran 

I have used this thought above, numerous times in my life when I have “lost at Love”.  And I came to believe that if the “love” relationship is to be, then I cannot ‘make it happen’ by changing someone else or myself…unless I want to become more loving. 

*It is important to keep one’s values and not give in to unhealthy, unequal, inadequate, conditional and controlling relationships.  They are not really loving…and that is what we all want and deserve…in ANY relationship.

Loving relationship ingredients

ONE DAY AT A TIME

I start each day with prayer and meditation and opening up my energetic field to love, faith and continued hope.  This begins my intention for the day; each day.  To live in the present moment of the day which is when we CHOOSE our thoughts and actions…to choose love

I have found each day can be challenging within myself, with others, and about our country and our world.  When I hear, “What can I do? or There is nothing I can do?”  I believe lifting up our spiritual energy to expand our loving hearts has an amazing effect on all of our lives.  You never know who you impact.

Our egos tell us to be afraid and control situations and people, but the spirit of love whispers in our heart to love and give more…and open to receive.  If each of us lived Choosing LOVE as your daily intention, what a wonderful world this would be. 

Make LOVE your passion each day!

Happy people

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love
–Mother Teresa

Love is the answer no matter the question!Heart__________________________________________________

The POWER of a WORD

MIRROR, MIRROR; I SEE MY WORD

Happy New Year!  To start the year, I am inviting you to select “Your Power Word(s)” of the week, the month, or the year to inspire and motivate you personally, as you look at your beautiful smile in the mirror each day.  This may help you to get beyond any of your limiting beliefs of not fulfilling your prosperous, happy, awesome life you deserve!

Take time to be divinely guided.

Here are a few suggestions to begin to stir your mind:

  • Bliss, Bliss, Blissful!
  • LOVE; I am Love, I am loving, I am loveable.
  • Inner Peace; I have the Peace of God.
  • Whole and Healthy
  • The Will of God guides me.
  • Awesome Creativity
  • Forgiveness
  • Faith
  • Rejuvenated Attitude
  • I am Beautiful
  • Unity
  • Thankyou / Gratitude
  • Loyalty
  • Courage
  • More….

rocks in water

What is MY word, you might ask?  I really like Bliss, Bliss, Blissful!  That to me covers it all.  Although in my prayer or meditation time, or during some of my daily activities, I may use any of the above words!!!

Q. What is YOUR WORD? Please EMAIL me at sthiem08@att.net. *

WHAT IS THE POWER IN A WORD? 

Some say, “Your Word is your Bond.”  Florence Scovel Shinn says, “Your Word is Your Wand, so man has power to change an unhappy condition by waving over it the wand of his word.”

“Man’s word is his wand filled with magic and power! Florence S. Shinn

Heart in hands2

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.  ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Jesus Christ emphasized the power of the word; “By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned,” and “death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  And “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set your free.”

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” ~ Jesus Christ

Fear, doubt, anxiety, anger, resentment pull down the cells of the body, shock the nervous system and are the causes of disease and disaster.  Our thoughts and our words matter in our lives!

WORDS, THOUGHT, PERSPECTIVE

A woman at sea awoke in the morning and heard the fog horns blowing.  A dense fog had settled on the ocean with no apparent signs of clearing.  She immediately spoke the word, “There are no fogs in Divine Mind, so let the fog be lifted!”  I give thanks for the sun! (By Florence S Shinn).

What we think, we become.  All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world.  – The Buddha

Many people have been “brainwashed” by untrue words that became untrue thoughts, such as “You are not smart, or beautiful, or talented or you are a dummy; you will never make anything of yourself” or worse.  These statements then live in the mind and can make one’s life unfulfilled, fear based and unhappy.  This person can be very hard on themselves if they continue to believe these limiting falsehoods.

It is a never-ending journey to shape our lives into the positive, uplifting, smiling, brilliant person we really are.  We can begin with reframing the WORDS we use about ourselves and our life and our world.  We can do it with loving support and continual reminders…I use stickee notes with my words on them around my home.  And choose your friends and relationships wisely to support your growing, uplifting journey.

LOVE is the ANSWER no matter the question!

INTRO TO A SMILE – 2019

Happy New Year!
I have an Awesome Surprise for you this Year…
More and more SMILES!

Introducing:

The Power of a SMILE Series…
12 months of Power Thoughts

Inspiration – Kindness – Connection – LOVEI love Smiles

What is the Power in a SMILE?

How do you feel when YOU genuinely smile?

How do you feel when someone genuinely smiles at you?  Did you smile or giggle at the cat and dog smiling?  And their sense of friendship and unity!?

This coming year I want to focus on how SMILES affect our lives and many different situations and how our attitudes effect our ability to SMILE.  First of all, I found some interesting information about SMILES!  (At least I think this is interesting!)

WHAT IS A SMILE?

According to an online Dictionary:  noun; a pleased, kind, or amused facial expression.  And the smile is the “the symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content concludes scientist Andrew Newberg, an American neuroscientist. 

 

A smile is formed primarily by flexing the muscles at the sides of the mouth. It is believed it takes about 42 muscles to smile….42!  Who knew?  Some smiles include a contraction of the muscles at the corner of the eyes, an action known as a “Duchenne Smile“.  Wikipedia

Whenever the mouth muscle only is activated and not the eye wrinkles, it’s not actually a genuine smile. Scientists call this the “social” smile.  Like, when someone is in on a parade float for a long time and has to smile all the while.  Or when someone smiles but really is not happy about the situation. 

Can you tell the difference, at times, when one is really happily smiling and when one is “socially” smiling?  Take some time this next week to pay attention to smiles.

THE SCIENCE OF SMILING

What happens to our brain when we smile?

“Smiling stimulates our brain’s reward mechanisms in a way that even chocolate, a well-regarded pleasure-inducer, cannot match.”

choco face childSmiling stimulates the pleasure center of our brain, greatly!

A smile can brighten up someone’s day, maybe a person is facing certain challenges in their lives, and your smile could be the sunshine that they did not know they were looking for.  I was taking a walk lately, on a beautiful day, and a lady was walking toward me, looking down with a frown on her face and I said something to her, smiling, like, “Hello, beautiful day!”  She looked up and gave a ‘half’ smile.  I hope I helped her day. 

“We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.”  
— Mother Teresa *

Smiles:
  • Inspire connection
  • Show LOVE
  • Give comfort
  • Express kindness
  • Create more smiles
  • Support our positive attitudes
  • (I wonder…) create a higher energetic level?

Everyone in the world relates to a smile…they immediately know what it means.

Questions:

  1. Who do you know that has an AWESOME smile? 
  2. What else do smiles do?
  3. What have you noticed about smiles?

butterful-yellow  Note, something new about the author: In the summer of 2018 I started “raising” caterpillars and Butterflies in my backyard (see “Backyard” Blog) and so I learned about the *BUTTERFLY EFFECT: The idea that one butterfly could eventually have a far-reaching ripple effect; the idea that small causes may have large effects in general. 

I want my Blog and any place I am, to be a place where I try my best to bring peace, love and smiles; where I have my little positive influence on any person’s attitude and that the world will be a better place.  I used to think if I could help just one person, that would be wonderful. Through these past 25+ years I have been in the presence of so many amazing people to give and receive from.  I am humbled, honored and grateful.
