Thoughts for the day October 23, 2015

The word for the day is imagination.

 

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” 
― Albert Einstein

“Everything you can imagine is real.” 

― Pablo Picasso

“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” 

― John Lennon

 

A thought from Pam Grout

 

Don’t know if you saw yesterday’s New York Times. But I’m wahooing and fist-bumping because the prestigious scientific journal Nature just published a huge study proving one of the principals I talk about in my books.

As you can imagine, not just everybody buys into the fact that things over here (say our thoughts) influence things over there.

But scientists at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands just proved one of quantum theory’s fundamental claims. Namely, that objects separated by great distance instantaneously affect each other’s behavior. Kinda a big blow to Isaac Newton and old-school physics.

Although these kind of non-local experiments have been going on since the 70’s (I wrote about Bell’s Theorem in E-Squared), there were still some nay-sayers pointing to loopholes. This new experiment, conducted by physicists at the Dutch university's Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, ruled out all hidden variables and pretty much substantiates the weird quantum world formed from subatomic particles, a world where matter takes form ONLY after being observed and measured.

The Delft researchers entangled two electrons, separated them by nearly a mile and then measured the spin. They used diamonds with a tiny trap for the electrons and then placed them on opposite sides of the campus, ensuring that the information could not be exchanged by any other means. Well, guess what?

The electrons changed spins simultaneously. As Princeton physics professor John Wheeler famously said, “It’s one of the deep, happy mysteries that, at all times, we interact with and influence the world we observe."

Why would we observe it any way except with big love and joyous gratitude?

A Sweet Treat for the Heart


We didn’t need any more excuses to eat chocolate, right? We’ll give you another one, besides a sweet guilty pleasure. Eating chocolate could help prevent heart disease.

We didn’t need any more excuses to eat chocolate, right? We’ll give you another one, besides a sweet guilty pleasure.
Eating chocolate could help prevent heart disease, and strokes according to Harvard’s Medical School, and the Heart medical journal.
People who indulged in dark chocolate on a regular basis had a lower risk of developing heart disease. The reason is the cocoa bean has polyphenols, and these compounds help with inflammation and increasing blood flow.
Chocolate has antioxidants that are also found in fruits and vegetables.
The study was conducted in Norfolk, England for 11 years, and those who ate more chocolate, died of cardiovascular disease than those who didn’t consume chocolate at 17.4 percent.

The average American consumed 107 pieces of chocolate annually, and women topped men by eating 89 percent compared to men who ate 85 percent. With any study, it’s important to balance how much you eat, and remember that there are a lot of calories in a chocolate bar.
Not all chocolate is the same, so stick to dark chocolate in small doses. A lot of the polyphenols are cancelled out in milk chocolate with all the fat and sugar usually added.
Romina di Giuseppe led a study that was published in the Journal of Nutrition (2008) and found that there was a reduction of inflammation in those who consumed dark chocolate, than those who did not.
“People having moderate amounts of dark chocolate regularly have significantly lower levels of C-reactive protein in their blood. In other words, their inflammatory state is considerably reduced.”
Chocolate could also lower cholesterol, and improve blood pressure.
So, there you go. Enjoy a small piece of dark chocolate for a happy heart.

Thoughts from Pam Grout


Prosperity is a decision we get to make
“Everything you need is deep within you. Upon your request, upon your insistence, upon your need and stating that need, stating your intention, it will arise.”—Michele Longo-O’Donnell

Like everyone else on the planet, I learned ages ago that opportunities for pain and suffering are always going to be available and that if I was going to live with intention, it’s best to steer clear.
I’d have never become the author of 17 books, a reporter for People magazine and a world traveler if I’d accepted the onslaught of “negative invitations.”
“That’s not possible,” naysayers always insisted on telling me. “It’s hard to write a book. Even harder to sell it. You’re an unknown from Kansas. You got B’s in your journalism classes, for God’s sake.”
“Talk to the hand,” I’d always say to those voices. “That may be your way of seeing things, but I choose a different reality, a higher path.”
But in 2008, after three years of ever-increasing income, even being in a position to turn down a fourth project for National Geographic, I took the ego’s bait.
By then, a constant stream of bad news dominated the headlines. My profession, journalism and book publishing, was among the hardest hit by the global downturn. Publishers were cutting back their lines, lowering their advances. Many of my colleagues in the newspaper business were suddenly without work.
Again, I normally don’t listen to such nonsense. I much prefer a spiritual reality that proclaims abundance no matter what the circumstances. But by 2009, after little by little letting the dire news seep in, I plucked the aforementioned recession invitation out of the trash. I decided to take just a peek.
The party was in full swing. My agent was repeating the “nothing’s selling” mantra over by the punch bowl. Regular clients were on the corner sofas, moaning about the economy and their need to buy less.
Before I knew what happened, I bunny hopped right into the middle of the celebration. I began singing the “ain’t it awful” blues along with the party’s deejay. I told anybody who’d listen about my hard times.
Before long, I convinced everyone I know that my career as an independent author was over. I even fooled them into believing that, after all these years on my own, I was old, washed up and as yesterday as the History Channel.
I actually reveled in the sympathy.
Then one day, I got out my beat-up copy of Think and Grow Rich. As I read Napoleon Hill’s words about “thoughts being things,” I suddenly got it.
Look how powerful my thoughts and words had been. Look what I’d done to myself. If I can create this disaster with nothing but my thoughts, I can just as easily create the opposite.
When I think back about it now, I’m slightly embarrassed. How could I have fallen so bumpily off the wagon I’d use so successfully for so many years? I know good and well how this stuff works. I know that I create my own reality. I know that listening to dooms-dayers is the most futile exercise in the world.
I wasted no time using Hill’s famous advice.
Within a week, I had two new assignments. A new book contract came next. Rather than live frugally, the advice my friends were freely passing out, I decided to spend the summer overseas, volunteering and letting my newly-recovered faith pay the bills.
That decision to say, “I am prosperous and, of course, I can afford to travel overseas to volunteer” was the beginning of a more fruitful life.
Needless to say, I’ve taken that beautifully-engraved invitation and ripped it to shreds. And don’t bother sending anymore. Because from now on, my RSVP’s to any negativity will say one thing, “Have a good time. But don’t expect to find me there.”

“Jesus was the only son of God. And so are you and so am I.”—William Blake

In electronics, there’s a term known as factory reset—or master reset—where your device is returned to its original setting. All the information that has been added since say your laptop or your I-pad rolled off the factory floor is erased. It goes back to Square One.
That’s also a pretty good definition for spirituality. Our mission—if we choose to accept it—is to erase everything that isn’t the Divine. Things like fear, resistance, placing our attention on anything except this beautiful juicy moment.
As I repeatedly said in E-Cubed, joy is our natural state. And as I head into this weekend, I hereby commit to staying as close to that factory setting as I can.
Have fun this weekend, my beautiful friends. And remember one of the best ways to serve humanity is to send molecules of happiness and peace and gratitude out into the quantum field.

What are you building for the future?

Are you building walls or bridges to your future?

Walls hold back the good from the Universe. Walls are built by doubts, negative thinking, negative emotions, fears, and old negative belief patterns.

Bridges allow the Universe to bring you what you want. Bridges are built with love, appreciation, positive thinking, passionate images of the future, and positive emotions.

Thoughts on relationships

Over the last 20 years I have studied relationships in various venues and helped numerous clients with relationship issues. The one thing I have learned from my experiences and training is that a great relationship is built on being a best friend. Of course there is the need of attraction, but deep and lasting love grows from friendship. The essence of a best friend is where there is trust, great communication, acceptance, being trustworthy,no judgement, shared humor, being genuine, loving you for you, forgiveness, mutual support, and shared interests and values. When these qualities are present in a relationship not only does the friendship grow but also a unshakable bond of love.

Take a look at your relationships, is there anywhere in your life that fits that criteria? Hopefully you can say your partner. If some of those elements are not present in the current relationship this would be a time to work together to build a stronger bond around all the aspects of a great friendship. 

My personal resolution for 2016 is to manifest and develop this best friend that is a lasting love relationship.

Your Daily Now Moment!

Give to the Planet:
 
Although we may live in different parts of the same country or around the world, we all call planet earth our home. Consider the fact that this earth is alive. It's made up of the same elements as you and I and needs to be nurtured.
 
Consider some way you can give back to the earth. Perhaps it's through an awareness of recycling, by donating to an organization or creating a home garden.
 
Did I mention this has also been linked to mental health?
 
Put your judgments aside and consider ways that you can give back to the planet today.
 
What do you notice?

Thoughts for Friday 04/22/2016

Living in the space of love and appreciation!

Love and appreciation are the highest vibrations that will create change within us. When we learn to live by those vibrations and allow them they will change those negative beliefs that limit us. Our soul vibrates with love and appreciation. Live in alignment with your soul and amazing changes will happen in your life. Living in that space, all kinds of healing will take place. There will be physical, emotional, financial, and relationship healing.
