Setting Intention

Nice article about using a daily ritual like hands in prayer position to overcome blockages and set the intention to “open to receive positive things into my life. “

Connected Breath

It’s the beginning of yoga class and we’ve been asked to bring our hands in prayer position to our heart as we sit in a comfortable position. Normally I would press my palms together, firm and even, but today my teacher says something different:

“Press your palms together firmly, now keep pressing through your thumbs and fingers, but create a little space in between your palms. In this way you make room for the seed of your intention.”

In the past, when I had set my intention at the beginning of class, it would feel superficial. This time, I found a great feeling of hope as I made space for my little seed – or pod – of intention. No longer was this just something I said before class, but something more tangible than that. By setting my intention into this little imaginary seed, I was creating a thought that would…

Nice thought … I can’t emphasize more what a big role being grateful plays in enjoying life.

Taste of life by Sabi

Try to see all blessings given to you. No matter how sad you are. Try to find something positive even in the worst situation. Experience, and knowledge about people and life are also profits. Sometimes really more precious, than money. If you can learn from your failures, you’ll be able to get all, what you want.  So take bad times in life as they are – precious lesson of life.  Stand up, and move on! And be thankful for all good, what you got on your path of life. For all blessings.

Grateful for Simple Pleasures – Instruction #2

Do you remember those special moments in your life when you discover something small and simple but yet profound because it makes your life easier?

I was thinking about this and my list of special discoveries begins with an ergonomic peeler .  Yes, a potato, carrot, zucchini type peeler.  As I grew up, I remember using one of those skinny, metal peelers and often having indentations in my fingers after peelings a bunch of potatoes.  Then one day, I was gifted with an OXO good grip peeler and my life changed.  Now I can peel away without pain and frustration.

Another item that made a difference in my life was discovering down blankets.  I grew up in San Francisco, which is known for it’s cold, windy, foggy days.  Often at night as a child I was cold.  I’d pile on the blankets, and then go to my closet and pile on coats and robes to bring a little warmth.

When I was a young adult, I flew to Germany to meet and travel with a boyfriend who was in the military. While in Deutschland, and staying in quaint little hotels that dotted the Bavarian alps, I discovered down blankets on their beds. Ever since that trip, I’ve purchased fluffy down blankets for my beds and have never been cold at night again.

When you talk about possessions, the first thing that comes to mind is having that big house or fancy car … but great pleasure can be derived from simple items like a peeler or down blanket.

It all depends on your perspective.  It’s just a matter of first opening yourself to try something new instead of continuing to be frustrated or marred by finger indentations or freezing cold, then realizing how its enhanced your life, and finally be grateful.

LIFE INSTRUCTION No. 2:  Be grateful for the simple pleasures and discoveries in your life — whether it’s the smile of a baby or a potato peeler.  It’s when we accumulate a lot of small little positive moments like this that we feel happiness growing in our spirit.

What are your simple pleasures and discoveries?

Step out of your comfort zone!

Building a Habit of Success

Modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming a “habit of failure.”

If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall.  If you make up your mind to do something, do it; let nothing, no one interfere — never allow it to be overruled.

Paraphrased from The Master Key

Don’t Worry… Be Happy

A great article on “Happiness” that I reblogged … enjoy.

Can't Stand The Heat

“The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.” ~Benjamin Franklin

After last week’s ranting, I figured that it would be appropriate to do an entry on happiness. Yesterday, my co-workers and I attended a social, where we watched an awesome, inspirational documentary, called “The Happy Movie”. It’s one of those topics that everyone searches high and low for, when it’s simply placed right under our noses. Media teaches us that happiness is something that only certain people achieve; the beautiful, the rich, and the famous. However, people of the exact opposite have seemed to have more fulfilling lives. The start of the movie shows a man from India, who wakes early every morning to carry passengers on a rickshaw. He does this physically strenuous job in the beating sun, for hours, while wearing flip-flops .. He comes home to an…

AquaCure – My Healing Experiment

In the spirit of Dr. Masaru Emoto and his rice test, I’ve decided to perform my own little water experiment that I will call “AquaCure” (I’m purposely using a positive word “cure” in the title).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Over the next month, starting Monday, May 21, 2012, I will drink at least 3 glasses of water per day (morning, noon, and night) using a glass with positive words written on it.  When drinking, I will say, think, and intend positive thoughts and words like “love, gratitude, joy, health…” and utter affirmations to set my intention for my own “improved health.”

T0 add another dimension to this little experiment, I will drink different types of water each week to see if they have varying effects.  Week 1 will be tap water, Week 2 bottled water, Week 3 filtered water, and Week 4 ionized water.

I plan on observing the effects of my “AquaCure” experiment to see if my health improves.  To measure the effects, once a week I will write diary entries on my blog, discussing what takes place.  I will especially look at feelings, energy, mental and physical manifestations, intuitive actions I’m inspired to take, and cures.

To lay the groundwork, the starting point is that my health has been poor. I have weight issues after years of programming in unhealthy eating habits.  I’ve been having problems walking with stiff legs and pain in the knees. My energy is low and my skin, hair, and nails are lackluster.  And I have conditions that show my body is missing the necessary ingredients to thrive.

We will see in 30 days if intending “improved health” using water brings about the results I desire.   Signed by:  Suzan

PLEASE JOIN ME IN THIS EXPERIMENT.  EACH WEEK, WHEN I POST MY DIARY ENTRIES, YOU CAN ADD COMMENTS ABOUT HOW YOU ARE DOING?
