AVOID FEELING OVERWHELMED

Ramona welcomed the group and had new members and guests introduce themselves.

EddieConner led the group in a guided meditation via zoom.  Be sure to visit Eddie’s website to learn about his offerings and spiritual journeys.

Members shared their wins since the last meeting.  Mike and Ramona picked this topic because we are feeling overwhelmed with their decision to sell their Michigan home and move to California. 


The key points were:
Is negative emotion pointing out that I am stupid?  Or is it letting me know there is a better direction?  There is no judgement or wrong doing.  There are just better choices and worse choices.  Sometimes we jump into action before we are properly aligned.
How do we get rid of strong negative emotion? By catching it early.  Listen less to what people say and trust your own instincts more.  You are the orchestra conductor.
When you are in alignment with the idea of what you want, and you practice that idea until you can hold it steadily, the members of your orchestra must find alignment with that powerful pattern you have presented.  But, if you turn your attention away from that powerful pattern you will lose that fine-tuned orchestra.
Sometimes the path of least resistance is to join the group and sometimes it is to lead the group.  You have to decide which time it is.
Which of these statements feel better? 
Looking at a desk and seeing everything that needs to be done:
·      I have too much to do.  Or, I’m really good at this.
·      I need to get this done right away. Or, Inspiration will come and I will get it done.
·      I have so much to do I need help.  Or, I’m really good at this and help sometimes gets in my way.
You cannot lose by caring about how you feel and you cannot win by paying no attention to how you feel.
You must have a happy journey to have a happy ending.  You can’t have a happy ending to a journey that has not been happy.
Make peace with what is.  You can tell when you’ve engaged the help of a cooperative universe and when you have not.
When you feel good, everything you do feels good.  Don’t ask what you are doing to be the reason to feel good.
When you change the emotion, the condition will change.  Whether conditional love or unconditional love, conditional alignment or unconditional alignment, most need the condition to change before the emotion changes. 
Feeling overwhelmed?  You’ve got to work the bugs out before it’s too late.  Go get a cup of coffee, take a nap, breathe, take a walk.  Do whatever relaxes you.
Make everything fun.  Do not keep practicing the thought that is hard, as in “This is the part I don’t like.”  Start saying to yourself “I like all parts of my life.”  If you wait for hat you think is the part you want to manifest before feeling good, you will miss the best part of life.

A great book on the subject was recommended by one of our members.  The Book of Joy:  Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu and Douglas Abrams.  


The key points were:
Overwhelment is…something we picked up under other circumstances, not when we were in the flow.
Feel the stream of being in the receptive mode, following the stream of help.  Compare that to not being in the receptive mode and see how that plays out for you!
When you are truly in the receptive mode you never feel overwhelmed. Don’t push yourself into doing the work.  Instead, let it go and get into the receptive mode.  You’ll be surprised by what happens.

Remember – If you have five things you really care about, four are working and one is not, what do we do?  Usually we concentrate on the one that is not working.  That changes our vibration to the negative.  Instead, concentrate on the four that are working and the fifth usually will join that vibration.
Conversely, if you have five things you really care about and FOUR are not working, your tendency is to work on the four that are not working.  Instead, concentrate on the one that is working and that will affect the vibration of the others.  Think about the things that empower you, lift you up, make you smile, laugh and be happy.  Lead by example.  Mirror other people’s beauty.  Be a “you bet” person, not a “yeah but” type.  Always take credit for your wins, successes and powerful moments. 

Ramona asked the group “Are you ready to close the book on feeling overwhelmed?  Then shout to the Universe:
I release feeling overwhelmed.
I’m taking back my power.
I’m going to find increasing alignment with whom I am.
I like all parts of my life.
And so it is!!!

BE IN CONTROL UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES


 Ramona welcomed members and guests.  Eddie Conner led us in a guided meditation “Connect with your higher self, heart and soul” via Zoom.  Thank you Eddie for your amazing meditations and for coming to Michigan again this coming July.

In Burbank a member recorded Eddie’s meditation on the same subject as tonight’s meeting.  To listen you will need to download the following file:

Eddie's Burbank Meditation

Announcements:

Shannon Elhart announced that her new book “The Healing Gift of Gratitude” is now available for sale.  Her book may be purchased online at THE HEALING GIFT OF GRATITUDE BOOK.  

A member had a wonderful experience at Michael Beckwith’s Costa Rican resort and recommends it highly.  Check it out at Rythmia.com.  

The opening video was Abraham-Hicks “You Control Everything Coming to You”    
The key points are:
         Don’t react, flow instead.
         Don’t feed into negativity.
         Be a vibrationalist.
         You get to choose everything.
         Remember only good comes to you.
         Hold yourself in a high vibration.

Tidbits picked up by the audience:
  • ·      All is well.
  • ·      How to stay in the flow so you remain connected at all times.
  • ·      See and hear others with beautiful compassion.
  • ·      Train yourself to see others as healed, whole and healthy.
  • ·      You can connect with others who feel bad while not getting yourself into their negative mindset.
  • ·      Always practice a better-feeling thought and build from there.
  • ·      Like nature we have inflection points, ebb and flow.  We can be in these inflection points and not sink into old negative habits.
  • ·      Knowledge is power and pure perspective can create the best inner plan to manifest your outer physical world.
  • ·      It takes strength and humility to hold your purest vibration regardless of what’s happening around you.
  • ·      We can’t NOT attract things to use, but we can control how we view them.
  • ·      Don’t argue your limitations.


Each time we have contrast we are launching rockets of desire.  Source sees us as perfect and unconditional love.

Remember Abraham’s recommendation that when someone is attempting to bring us down to their level, just mentally say “I don’t care”.  It’s a form of letting go and feeling good.

The second video was Abraham-Hicks “How to gain control of the way you feel”.    

What are our inner thoughts?  Abraham encourages us to soothe ourselves into alignment.  Remind ourselves of what’s right in our lives, not what’s wrong.  Placing your thoughts and intentions in the forefront of your mind and heart shifts your entire life for the better.  Counting our blessings and focusing on what’s right really works.

How do we get to the point of being in control under all circumstances?  We can leave bad circumstances, but wherever we go, the issue follows.  Why?  Because many times the issue is within us.  We must change our perspectives, our thoughts, and our feelings first so that we don’t repeat history with different people, places, circumstances and situations.

Try acknowledging people’s higher selves when you communicate with them.

Change your perspective.  Change your life… 

… and realign and reconnect to your true core essence so you are in control of your circumstances, not controlled BY them.  When confronted by someone or something that brings back bad memories and feelings, try the following cures:
  • ·      Show gratitude and appreciation for what they taught you.
  • ·      Bless them.
  • ·      Wish them well.
  • ·      Send pure feel-good prayers.
  • ·      Make a new choice to feel good.
  • ·      Acknowledge the negative feeling with love.  Then thank them until you feel it in your heart, mind and soul.
  • ·      Remember these feelings, these people cause us to expand.
  • ·      Always wish people well.
  • ·      Practice forgiveness.
  • ·      Love doesn’t hurt; love lifts us up.
  • ·      Wish them well and let them go.

Observation – there’s good control and bad control.

Choosing to feel good takes more conscious energy than feeling out of control.  Sometimes our out of control feeling is just a habit of old thoughts that are on auto pilot.

Abraham’s power of meditation practices.

  • ·      Start your day with a 5, 10 or 15-minute morning well-being meditation.  This will set the tone for the day and helps you step out of your old, outdated auto-pilot habits.
  • ·      When we choose to soothe our thoughts through meditation we live a solution oriented life that feels much better.
  • ·      We can’t control others, but we can control how we see, hear and feel the world from core essence.
  • ·      Instead of practicing negative thoughts, practice feel-good thoughts.
  • ·      Think positive thoughts about what you love in our world – our freedom, beauty, diversity and ease to create our dreams. 
  • ·      Ignore the political turmoil.  Think positive thoughts instead.
  • ·      Whatever you’re observing is old news, history, already done.  Ignore it.


Here are some links to Abraham meditations:

The free iPhone meditation app is called “CALM”.

What does “Living in the Now” mean to us?
  • ·      Being present.
  • ·      In the now.
  • ·      Surrendering without judgement.
  • ·      Living the end result now.
  • ·      Being in joy.
  • ·      Feeling inspired.
  • ·      Being uplifted.
  • ·      Living in the light.
  • ·      OPERATING FROM A BLANK SLATE.  When talking with someone with whom you have history, forget the history – begin as if it is your first conversation with them.


The closing video was from Facebook simply titled “Law of Attraction".  

Our next meeting will be June 19 entitled “Avoid Being Overwhelmed.”
