 THE POWER OF LOVE

Please start your day with a jolt of coffee and a Jolt of Love to continue all day, every day:

“You can go beyond your abilities, only with the power of love.” 
“To bring real peace in the world, teach people how to win with the power of love.”
— Debasish Mridha, MD

 

“If someone loves you they’ll give you the world free of charge. If the world loves you, not even the richest man can compete with that.  Love is true power.” 
— Dushawn Banks, Love, Pain & Perception

 

“The return to love is hardly the end of life’s adventure.  It’s the real beginning. A Course In Miracles says we think we have many different problems but we really only have one: denying LOVE is the only problem and embracing it is the only answer.”
— Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

Love is the answer no matter the question!

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?

Can You See People Differently (during the Holidays)?

We can always perceive ourselves and others as either 
Extending Love or Giving a Call for Help.

Attitudinal Healing Principle #12

NOTE: Please stay tuned for a NEW SERIES of Blog Posts starting in 2019
that will help you to SMILE more
!

Child w-FlowerTo See People Differently.

As we end this year and our review of the 12 Attitudinal Healing Principles we are now to look at our relationships.  Do you have any relationships, especially during this Holiday time, that you feel stressed with?  So many people do in their families, with friends, or at work.

Family
Do you see any of your relationships here?!

When I first became acquainted with Attitudinal Healing, I thought this concept / principle was the most profound.  And I still find it to be one I think of very often…well, every day as I encounter situations in my fear base.  In every situation or relationship, we are either extending love or giving a call for help.  The practice of this principle brings meaning and purpose to every human encounter and every human circumstance.  This principle does require the integration of all the other 11 principles; accepting the healing power of love, giving and receiving, living in the NOW moment; forgiveness, focusing on love, with the intention of inner peace as our only goal.

DO ALL THINGS WITH LOVE.
INNER PEACE IS OUR ONLY GOAL.

Extending Love

 In the previous 11 principles, we have talked a lot about feeling the essence of our being and extending love to our self and others.  And that love is the greatest healing force in the world.  We have been called to remember when we have felt a deep love for others and when we have felt that from others in our life.  Simply, the extending of love is through kindness, understanding, patience, etc., and feeling our inner light and spirituality.  It is a state of non-Judgment (there’s that “J” word again!).  When we are in the state of love, which is a pure state, then we can find inner peace…that passes all understanding.  It is simply felt and enjoyed.  We all want to feel that feeling and I find that I don’t want to “leave that feeling” when I “find it”.  I find it in the love of family and friends and in prayer / meditation with connection to God, and every time I send loving thoughts.  I’d just like to stay there…wouldn’t you?  How can we feel that love?  At any point in time, we can “give ourselves a hug” through a positive affirmation for safety and love.  (See affirmations below.)

Call for Help – Healing our Wounds

 Whenever we are NOT in that position of extending love, we are in a FEAR state.  Whether it is about ourselves or another person, it is the same.  It is a call for help because it can be so hard to get back to the state of love we all so long for.  We have all been wounded during our lives which has taken us away from our original essence of love, of feeling safe, so the call for help is a call for love and healing of our past wounds.

It is through inner guidance that we learn how to respond to a call for help.  The call for help has become a natural reaction in our human fear base, and we act it out in ways that are not loving and connecting.  Then the other person’s reaction to that is from their fear base…and back and forth…which is the state of conflict.  Calls for help come in many forms, such as anger, frustration, impatience, blame, guilt, judgment, etc.

A very important concept is that we are not seen as a victim or victimizer, but as wounded and calling for help to heal.

FEAR (wounded)      FEAR (wounded)  =  CONFLICT
=  A call for HELP / LOVE!

So, we need to look beyond the appearance of the “fear forms” to the truth that it is a call for love.  As we notice another person’s call for help, it is a reminder to ourselves that we, too, call for help when we are in our fear state.  This principle is not about changing the behavior of another person, but about changing ourselves and how we view that person’s behavior and our own thoughts and actions.

It is only through seeing ourselves and other people differently, as wounded humans, then extending love to ourselves and others that our wounds can be healed and have more Inner Peace.

Love One another      Giving roses

All 12 Principles

Through all the 12 principles we’ve learned to have peace of mind (and less stress) when we choose to see ourselves and others differently through the eyes of LOVE!  To really have peace in our lives, we must share LOVE!

Love is Letting go of Fear. — Dr. G. Jampolsky
Peace
begins with YOU and ME.

Affirmations for daily use:

“I open my self to accept love.  I feel love today. I give love today.”

“I am full of love.  I feel joy.  I am at peace.”

“I am whole, safe, and complete.  I am LOVE.” 

 

No matter the question…Love is THE Answer…moment by moment!

LOVE is Eternal; Do NOT Fear.

Since LOVE is Eternal, Death and Change need Not be viewed as Fearful.

Attitudinal Healing Principle #11
NOTE: Please stay tuned for a NEW SERIES of Blog Posts starting in 2019!

 

Colorful sky

OUR BODY, OUR “SELF” AND LOVE

Through the exploration of the principles of Attitudinal Healing, we learned in Principle #1 that “Love is a given; a permanent energy in the universe and in each human being; it is our natural state.”  When we extend or receive love, it comes from the core of our being, our spirit that is connected to all and through God.  When we think about love we often think about the heart, but it is more than our physical heart or body.  It is an essence that we give and receive…so it is more than just our body.  During surgery, can the surgeon touch love inside of us?  Can we touch it?  No, it is not of the body but of the spirit self.  It is more than our body.  So, even when our body does not inhabit this earth, our love, which is energy, continues on.  Can you feel the love of someone who was really close to you whose body has departed the earth plane?  I sure can from my parents, as they were so unconditionally loving to me.  Because of this it might be easier for me to feel that, but love energy is always eternal; it never dies. 

 In Richard Bach’s book, “One”, there is an interesting and beautiful chapter when the wife dies and is yelling to her husband to feel her love, but he is in too much grief to listen.  They learned that in dying, our soul overcomes death, as many spiritual beliefs also believe, but he was not ready to listen to her, as they had agreed to do when either of them passed on.  To feel love, we must stop our “left-brain thinking”, actions and drama because love is not from thinking or overload; it is from feeling our essence and the essence of others. 

When we do not fear death, we can live fully in our LOVE essence, and live life fully.

 If we fear death, then do we fear life?  Perhaps.  When we do not fear death, we can live fully in our love essence, and live life fully (this does not mean we take unreasonable risks).  The quality of life relates directly to our fear of death.  As we have learned, love and fear cannot co-exist as love is pure and can be only love.  I have had the privilege of being with a few people who were in their last hours of living on this earth.  I thought it was going to be a really hard thing to do; but it wasn’t.  It was an honor to just love them and share in this spiritual journey with them.  When one of my cats died suddenly and previous to that experience, I could not be in the room when any of my other cats were euthanized.  This time, I was able to stay with him and just love him.  Of course, times like these are sad and we cry, but it is also a privilege, and can even be a joy, to be in that essence.  A joy to know that LOVE lives on!

Heart open - 2 hands

CHANGE AND INNER PEACE

This principle has usually focused on love and death.  But CHANGE is a “death” of a past experience and transformation into a new experience.  We encounter change in relationships, employment, homes, things, health, etc.  I, personally, have experienced big changes in my life in many of those areas listed.  Leaving a home where my children grew up; leaving a job I thought I would retire at; having a couple of relationships fall apart when I was “in Love”.  These can feel life changing at the time and hard to imagine something better will come along.  I have come to realize that my condo is such a good thing in a number of ways and its location.  I have met some amazing people in more recent jobs.  And learned more and more about myself in relationships. 

With every loss there is a gain as it is important to learn from our past so we have a happier more successful “now moment” and future…and to experience inner peace no matter what is happening.  I have more and more inner peace with less and less expectations.  As we believe that love is the essence of our being, and healing is letting go of fear, AND we can be peaceful no matter what is happening around us…we realize that change and death need not be feared.  (AH Principles #1,2&8)

KNOW that love is eternal, changeless, timeless and has no form.

 So, once we KNOW that love is eternal, changeless, timeless and has no form, even with changes in life and in facing our own death and after the death of a loved one, we do not need to feel fear…and we can still enjoy life and continue to experience LOVE.

 No matter the question…Love is THE Answer…moment by moment!

The WHOLE of LIFE

We can focus on the Whole of life rather than the fragments.

Attitudinal Healing Principle #10

Thinker

FRAGMENTS
So, what are the fragments of life?  They are the thoughts, feelings, desires, events, anything that distracts us from our awareness of the whole of life.  Our worldly life.  For most of us they are the thoughts that we have MOST of the day…and night…what we tend to focus on most of the time.  Usually this is our lower self, our human/ego self that is concerned with the fragments.  It is what stresses us out.  Are you stressed?  It is the fear-based thoughts that trigger our anger, frustration, judgments, sadness, dissatisfactions, guilt, anxiety/depression, hopelessness, etc.  These and other events and activities in life are fragments of life that distract us from our spiritual self.  We can then feel confused, isolated and alone as well as even purposeless and hopeless.  Fragments tend to be events that we attach to and have expectations of, and when we focus on them, they expand in our life.  Remember, what we focus on expands!  Do you really want more of this?

It takes “paying attention…it does not cost you anything!” to identify the fragments and CHOOSE to see the whole of life to have more inner peace. 

WHOLE OF LIFE
I would rather focus on the whole of life which is our spiritual perspective…our higher self.  Focusing on the whole of life means seeing beyond appearances, realizing our Oneness and Unity with all.  We may recognize the fragments but we do not identify and attach with them when we focus on the whole of life.  The whole of life reflects the integration and balance of one’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical selves.  Our life does contain the fragments, but we are not these parts of life.  We are more than that.  When we are in our spiritual self we are in a more healing place.  Our ability to see life as a whole is strengthened through meditation and spiritual disciplines as they connect us to the divine healing power of unconditional love.  The whole of life is when we live life fully and with joy!

PUSH =            P = Pray      U = until      S = something      H = happens.

“I am one with God and the universe.  I am whole and complete.
I am aware of my whole life.  And I am grateful.”

Suggestion: Repeat the affirmation 3 times and tap your heart chakra (middle of chest) at the same time.

Whole of life

Jerry Jampolsky’s book, Out of Darkness into the Light: A Journey of Inner Healing.  Known for his extensive pioneering in the field of Attitudinal Healing, Dr. Jampolsky now shares his journey from severe depression, guilt and near alcoholism to a true “miracle”: an inner healing and infusion of life that was truly against the odds.
