FIND THE SWEET SPOT IN RELATIONSHIPS

Ramona welcomed the group and introduced new members. 

EddieConner provided another inspiring meditation.  

The opening video was Abraham-Hicks “Tune to your Sweet Spot”.  

Questions to contemplate---

Do you believe your beliefs are serving you properly?

Do you find yourself easily appreciating people and experiences?

Do you find yourself looking for positive aspects of whatever comes your way?  If “yes” then you have no work other than to be aware of when you aren’t, and cut it out.

Do you ever get down with negative emotions and not even notice?

Then ask yourself “Why am I willing to put up with this negative emotion?

The Law of Attraction is all about our thoughts.  It works for love and relationships the same as it works for other areas of our lives.  Whatever we have been thinking about our relationships is evidenced by what we are experiencing in our relationships right now.

Abraham emphasizes that we should wait to find that sweet spot.  The sweet spot is fun.  It’s about receptivity of feeling good for the joy of it.  We must visualize what we want, bask in what we want, before we get it.  Find the sweet spot in the emotion of it, not in the condition itself.  

Example: think of your dream vacation before you go.  The anticipation of your dreams is the sweet spot.  You don’t have to be living it for it to be sweet.  The receptive mode is the sweet spot.  Whether it be a vacation, a career move, or a love relationship, you can get there beforehand just by being in the receptive mode.  It requires no work.  Don’t write the script – receive it!  Allow it to happen.

Quote from Abraham “You are the vibrational writers of the script of your life and everyone else in the Universe is playing the part that you have assigned them.”

We develop patterns in our lives – some good; some bad.  When we discover a bad pattern we must change it by shifting to a higher consciousness using pattern disruption.  When you notice a negative pattern, say “I am disrupting this frequency of hardship, of struggle, of ….”

We sponsored Ina Lukas and the Alchemists at our California meetup.  They suggest a tool they call “Pattern Disrupt”.  We develop patterns (e.g. “this is hard for me”, “this is going to be a struggle”).  When we notice ourselves expecting a negative result based on past experiences (patterns), we need a pattern disrupt.  Say “I am disrupting this frequency of hardship and struggle” so we can break these unwanted patterns.

Our tendency is to see the negative in others.  Instead, see, feel and visualize their positive aspects. We must do the same with ourselves.  See yourself in your new life, in your new home, in your new experience.  This exercise creates great sweet spot manifestations.  Seeing and hearing others through love does the same.

Quote from Abraham “We cannot focus upon the weaknesses of one another and evoke strengths.  We cannot focus on things we think they are doing wrong and evoke things that will make us feel better.  We’ve got to beat the drum that makes us feel good when we beat it.  When we do, we’ll be a strong signal of influence that will help them reconnect with who they are.”

Quote from Deepak Chopra “However good or bad you feel about your relationships, the person you are with at this moment is the right person because he or she is the mirror of who you are inside.”  And he reminds us that everyone we meet is a spiritual guide.

Meditation from Dr. Wayne Dyer Here is the link to Wayne Dyer’s YouTube video “AH MEDITATION.  

Mastermind Question:  A member’s husband has been out of work for several months.  How can I use the Law of Attraction to help him find work and relieve the stress in both our lives?
Find your alignment first thing in the morning by meditating, deep breathing, or anything that starts your day with positive momentum.
Let go of old patterns.  Look for something sweet about the current situation.
Be introspective. List your own personal attributes.
Don’t let history get in the way.  Ignore it.
Don’t focus on how your husband is feeling; focus on making your lives better by improving your feelings.
Visualize him in the job that makes him come alive.
Bask in the thought of him working in that perfect job.
Tell yourself the new story over and over.

Quote from Abraham “Focus on the best you can in others.  When characteristics you want are missing, practice seeing them anyway.  When you think the thoughts you desire, they will show up in your experience.”

Ina Lukas and the Alchemists remind us to breathe into our bodies.  Feel the ecstasy of who we are.  We have access to Source 24/7.  When we have questions, doubts, or are beating ourselves up, stop and breathe and experience Source energy coming into our bodies and filling us with love.  Be kinder, more gentle, and softer with ourselves.



Dates for some of our future meetings will be May 23, June 20, July 25, at 7PM.  We are also in the preplanning stages of a special event featuring Ina Lukas and the Alchemists.  You won’t want to miss any of these events.

Eddie Conner will be here July 10 through 21 conducting workshops and providing private readings.  If you definitely want a reading (one-hour reading is $250) contact Ramona now to get on the list.  Exact dates and times will be determined later.

ARE YOU READY TO STOP BEING SO HARD ON YOURSELF? (The New Step 5)



Ramona welcomed the group and introduced EDDIE CONNER who provided another outstanding guided meditation “Be Kind to Yourself”, otherwise known as “Treehouse”.  Be sure to check out Eddie’s website for information on his Spiritual Peru Trip.  Deadlines are fast approaching.
After group sharing of our “new stories” the opening video was shown – “The Essence of Step 5”.  
Ramona reviewed Abraham’s first 4 steps and the new step 5, as follows:
 
ABRAHAM’s 5 STEPS
1.  ASK – Contrast causes asking.
          Do you ever experience contrast?  Source provides us contrast to cause us to send rockets of desire so we can create bigger, better and brighter physical manifestations. 
2.  ALLOW – Source answers by vibrationally assembling everything necessary.
          First, manifest by “going general”. It makes us feel more pure positive energy and provides the Universe with all that is necessary to prepare your manifestation to materialize.
3.  BE AWARE OF EMOTIONS - You find yourself in a vibrational match to what the Vortex has waiting for you.  Always in the direction of alignment.
          When we feel bliss we are in the flow of the Universe’s abundance.  Desperation puts up roadblocks; worrying creates blocks and activates more contrast.  When we vibrate lack we attract lack; when we vibrate joy we attract joy.  Becoming aware of what you say to yourself about yourself, and changing it into positive words can shift us to a higher vibration.  The same words said in different ways can carry different vibrations.
4.  MAINTAIN A RECEPTIVE MODE – More consistently acknowledging the condition hasn’t changed but your alignment has.   It is a matter of having practiced it until you’re consistently there. 
          Align yourself with Source for the sake of aligning, not to make something happen.  Do not become ruffled by what others are living – do an Abe process to soothe yourself about that issue.  Be happy where you are – use an Abe process if needed.  Just be satisfied with what is.  If not familiar with Abe’s processes, a good book to explain them is “Ask and it is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks.
5.  ACCEPT CONTRAST - This is the most fun.  Step 5 is WELCOMING CONTRAST. You no longer need to beat yourself up for feeling contrast.  You are sure of where you are and you’re in love with this world of variety.  When a contrasting thing happens, you are able to acknowledge its value.   We are inspired by Source. 
As humans we can choose “from spirit” to enjoy contrast and use it to get back into the vortex.  Condition your core essence to BELIEVE you can have what your heart desires.  Make clear, pure decisions that feel peaceful in your solar plexus to get back into the receiving mode.  Make sure your intention does not carry any attachment – that will make you feel better and put you back in the flow.
The closing video was “PetHorse Becomes Racing Champion”.  
Our next meeting will be our annual Holiday Pot Luck on December 13.

ISN’T IT TIME TO START TELLING A NEW STORY?



After Ramona welcomed members and guests, Eddie Conner (Click Here for Eddie's Website) provided an inspiring meditation to meet our higher self and begin to live a new story. 

If seeing Machu Picchu is on your bucket list, there is no better way to maximize your experience than to go with Eddie on his next tour May 4, 2016. Several past participants have felt the energy of the area and had unusual experiences while on the trip. And many come back with clarity of life. For information click on this link Eddie Conner Peru Trip. 

Here are some references you asked for:

To visit Linda Jo – She would love to have visitors and is recuperating in the Medi Lodge in Wyoming, 2786 56th Street SW.

Ramona’s knees are healing – she is avoiding surgery by using Prolozone Therapy at Born Clinic and physical therapy at Spine and Sport, both in Grand Rapids.

Danielle was inspired by last month’s “What If” exercise – and has developed a Facebook page based on her desire to change attitudes towards immigrants.  Be sure to “Like” her page “Immigrants of Grand Rapids”. 

Heidi mentioned a podcast she listened to – here it is Return to Life.  

The opening video was “You Have to Tell a New Story – Abraham” 

Ramona asked the group “How’s your life going? Are your relationships fulfilling? How is that bank account looking? Do you love your work and feel good about your level of success? If you had a magic wand, what areas of your life would you change?”

What blocks us are outside forces. These outside forces are magnetized to us based on our internal vibrations. There’s always someone who seems to have an opinion about how you should behave. Abraham tells us to remember no matter where you are, right at the very moment, feel happy. You can’t stay on track between where you are and where you want to be if you are using those outside influences to guide you. The only guidance you need comes from Source.

Are there areas of your life that could use some tweaking? Great!  Just tell a new story about each of those areas. Starting right now tell the story of your life the way you want it to be. You want to tell an empowering story that works for you rather than against you.

Ramona provided an example of how she deals with her knee issues. When the pain hits, her first instinct is to be upset and concentrate on the pain and discomfort.  Then she remembers what we all know – find something to feel good about, get out of the way and allow the cells to receive what they are asking for. That is the key to healing. Then she recites Abe’s words “My body knows what to do. Well-Being is natural to me. My Inner-Being is intricately aware of my physical body. My cells are asking for what they need in order to thrive, and Source Energy is answering those requests.”

We need to accept that there is a vibrational version of our story that is different from the version we practice most. They are not the same, and it is probably good they don’t coincide if we are not practicing clear thoughts. If your life isn’t going the way you want, it’s time to start hanging out with your future rather than your past.

We must learn to love ourselves. This will change our lives for the better. It will help us tweak our stories little by little which will result in gradual but meaningful shifts in our lives. Then start telling yourself your new story – the way you want your life to be. Let the old stories be a thing of the past and create a new story. The more you tell your new story, the more you will believe it.

We have billions of beings of intelligence within us. Cells that know what is best for themselves. As they find what’s best for themselves, it’s ultimately what’s best for you unless you are focused upon something unwanted and using that as your excuse to block the flow.

Realize that if we walk around verbalizing someone else’s old story we have made it our own. Thinking about how the Law of Attraction works brings us to the realization that everything you or anyone else is living, everything that is being lived by anyone, is in response to the story they are telling. Period!

Eddie has said that people who come to a Law of Attraction meetup are wanting to improve and break away from their old story and create a new one. Now is the time to do just that.

How do we get rid of those old stories that no longer serve us?  Just stop telling them. Thank them for whatever purpose they served in the past. Then get rid of them, never to be thought of again. Sometimes visualizations help. Place them in a trunk, chain it closed like Houdini, and drop it in the ocean. Or write out the old story on paper, place it crumpled up in a dish, and burn it. Whatever your course of action, you must let go of the old story.

Here are some points of Abraham wisdom to help you create your new story.

You've got to stop talking about how things are if you don't like them and you've got to start talking about how you'd like things to be.

As you imagine and visualize and verbalize your new story, in time you will believe the new story, and when that happens, the evidence will flow swiftly into your experience.

Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before your eyes, but it is not by magic.

You can say things like: Only good things come to me... I'll figure it out as I go along... Every time you tell your BETTER_FEELING story, you will feel better, and the details of your life will improve. The better it gets, the better it gets.

There is no right or wrong way to tell your improved story. It can be about your past, present, or future experiences.

Start a notebook or Journal and call it "MY LIFE STORY" and you begin writing Chapter 1: My life story relative to Abundance, and you just fabricate a fabulous fairy tale that is pleasing to you. This is the new virtual me.  Abraham promises you, if you tell that story for just a little while, instead of the story you've been telling. As you begin telling the story differently, it is Abraham’s promise to you that the Universe will back your story up with evidence.

Begin telling the story of your desire. And then add to it the details of the positive aspects that you can find that match those desires. And then embellish your positive expectation by speculating with your good feeling. Wouldn't it be nice if...?

Telling many good-feeling short stories throughout your day will change your point of attraction. Just remember that the story you tell is the basis of your life. So tell it the way you want it to be. Try to hear the story the Source within you sees.

REMEMBER that you came forth to Live Happily Ever After.

Our closing video was Israel Kamakawiwo’ole singing Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World.   

Abraham has this meditative paragraph to assist us in changing our frame of mind to the positive. “Everything I desire flows to me easily and joyfully. I make feeling good the most important thing and I am getting really good at keeping my vibration high by choosing thoughts that feel good. I am filled with appreciation, always looking for more to appreciate and enjoy. I love my life. I love myself. I love my family and friends. I’m a magnet for amazing prosperity, vibrant good health and loving relationships. I am a successful, confident, prosperous, loving, generous, happy person.”

Our last meeting of the year will be November 23, and our Holiday Pot Luck is scheduled for Sunday, December 13.  Hope all of you can make it to both.

Namaste…
