WORTHINESS - YOU DESERVE IT - BELIEVE IT!



Ramona welcomed the group and guests, introduced new members and asked people to share successes they’ve experienced since the last meeting.

A big thank you to PAM for providing a private harp recital for our group and setting the stage for the evening’s discussion.


What does feeling worthy mean to you? What does it feel like? It’s a peaceful feeling, in touch with oneself, accepted, exciting, deserving, prideful, exhilarating, appreciated, self-worth. These are just some of the good feelings shared. 

Do you have people you interact with that make you feel unworthy, that bring you down?  Some responses are: Jealous people can make you second guess yourself.  Some people will put you down to make themselves feel better about themselves.

Remember people cannot make you feel bad about yourself without your permission. You are the only one who can deem yourself worthy or unworthy. You are the only one who can love yourself into a state of allowing, or hate yourself into a state of disallowing. Since there is nothing wrong with you, what can we do to remain on the high flying disc of feeling worthy?

When you find yourself in a situation or conversation that is making you feel bad or unworthy, realize you need to pivot out of that feeling into something better. Look for the good in that person. Picture them as a child playing and having fun. Find what you like about them and write it down. If someone continually puts you down, talk to them about it. Ask them what is really bothering them. You may be able to help them through their issue. 

More importantly, look for the good in yourself and change your self-perspective. Change your beliefs by simply saying “It doesn’t serve me any longer.” Stay on your high flying disc and you won’t notice the things they do. 

There is a very powerful presence in our physical dimension that says “You are not worthy, so you are here to prove yourselves as worthy.” THIS IS NOT TRUE!  You are not here to prove your worthiness. You are already worthy.  You are here to enjoy the experience of joyful expansion, joyful growth.

To feel worthy you must love yourself first. This is a skill learned over time. Do it now; start it now; expand it now. One breath at a time. It’s just you; brilliant, capable, deserving you.  You are worthy.

On a deep level we know our worthiness – but we have practiced levels of what we allow ourselves to receive. We need to get the wobble out of our words and thoughts and be ready to receive only the good. (“Wobble” just means the teeter-totter effect that negative emotions have on our true desires. “I want it but I don’t deserve it, but I would like to have it, but I don’t think I can get it, etc.”)

Don’t have “desire remorse”. Think of a time or experience when something manifested in your life and you felt worthy of receiving it. What made you feel worthy? Think that thought to get rid of the wobble.

When you wake up you are standing in the spotlight of well-being. That is the best time to recreate the rest of your life. Start by taking a deep breath and showing appreciation for things you have manifested in the past. Realize you deserved them then, and you are worthy to continued positive manifestations.

The closing video was Love is Who We Are.

Next meeting is September 8.

GIVING YOUR OLD THOUGHT PATTERNS AN UPGRADE!



Ramona welcomed members and guests and introduced EddieConner who provided another provocative meditation.  

Eddie Conner will be visiting West Michigan in a couple of weeks. For information on his classes and readings, please contact Ramona through our meetup site.

Along with Eddie, one of our long time members who lives in the Baltimore area, Jane Rohde, will be driving here on her Harley Tri-Glide as a fund raiser for Bastion, a community that is being developed in New Orleans for wounded warriors, who have survived Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, and/or single/multiple amputations, and their families. Donations to this cause to support those who have protected our freedom at personal expense can be made through (www.GoFundMe.com/janes-ride-for-bastion). 

After sharing some success stories using Law of Attraction principles, we viewed Abraham-Hicks Thinking – as Choosing Your Thoughts.  

The quality of our day is determined by the vibrational frequency of our thoughts. In effect, we become our thoughts. If those thoughts are negative, we need to take responsibility for them since we created them, but all is not lost. We can change those thoughts by pivoting to more positive thoughts. 

Thoughts are activated by the attention we give them. The more attention, the more momentum – whether good or bad. It’s simply our choice. But what do we do when those negative thoughts are being promulgated by a coworker, friend or family member? Remember that those negative thoughts and comments are someone else’s vibration, not our own. We just need to maintain our higher frequency vibration. They will eventually observe that we are not on the same wave length as they are. 

To change our vibration, it may help if we look at everything as a gift – even the negative people in our lives.  When we see what we don’t want, it helps us determine what we do want. Another tool is to think of all our life experiences as bringing either joy, or laughter, or strength to our inner being.

When faced with lack in an area of our lives, ask yourself “Why am I so abundant in other areas of my life?” Make a list of what is abundant. Remember how you manifested that abundance in other areas. For example, when faced with a lack of money, don’t think about having money in the bank because that thought is actually thinking about what you don’t have. Rather, think about things you have manifested in the past and picture those objects as already having them. Create a new story and work every angle of that story to support abundance. 99% of our manifestations happen before we see them. Play the “Wouldn’t it be wonderful” game and expect wonderful things to happen to you.

What do we do when we are faced with low frequency thoughts? (Not enough time or money, health, coworkers, past relationships). One idea is to “Put a face on it”. When the ugly thought comes to mind, picture it with an ugly face, like one from a horror movie. Make that ugly face the trigger that tells you to stop the ugly thought and switch to a better feeling one. When you stop telling the “Woe is me” story, a better story will appear.

Remember the 17 second rule. If you can stop thinking a negative thought before 17 seconds has elapsed, it will not take root and you can change to a better feeling one.

ACTIVATING LOVE AND ABUNDANCE



Ramona welcomed the group and introduced Eddie Conner via Skype for the meditation.  After member updates and introduction of new members, the opening video “Love Yourself intoAlignment”, which discusses laying new pipes, was shown.  

How do we activate love in our lives?  Some suggestions were to give love and you will get love in return; practice love and appreciation; love yourself first; pick out the parts you love about yourself and delete the rest; as soon as you awake start a list of everything you encounter that day that you see feel and hear; ignore whatever others say about you that may bring you down; ask yourself about the positives in your life; think about the things you love in life like your pets, kids, grandchildren or nature in general; pivot out of your bad thought process to get to a higher disc; do whatever gives you joy; do not take the comments or actions of others personally; if you have a problem go to that person and ask “Is everything OK between us?”; when someone compliments you accept it and thank them because putting yourself down or humbling yourself dishonors the other person; just say thank you and appreciate the compliment; tell a different story; remember not to look back because that’s not where you are going; and make promises to yourself on how you want to live (I promise to love, appreciate, listen carefully, etc.).

How do we attract abundance into our lives?  Several members recommended a book entitled “A Happy Pocket Full of Money” by David Cameron Gikandi. Some suggested actions were to show gratitude for everything you receive; write a new story; Source knows you deserve it so you should know that you deserve it; generosity breeds abundance; watch You Tube Abraham meditation videos; remember the times in your life when you attracted abundance; write down what you want but make sure you are in a feel-good place when you write it. Also remember the Abraham quote from the Stamford meeting on 9-28-13.  Referring to vibrational currency as well as monetary, Abraham said "The more of it that you spend out the bottom the more of it comes back in the top."

Ramona read a quote from Abraham “Today, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing, no matter who I am doing it with, it is my dominant intent to stay on my high flying disc!”

The closing video was “Grateful – A Love Song to theWorld”. Musicians Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod brought together dozens of people from around the world to create this beautiful, heart-opening melody. Inspired by the 21-day Gratitude Challenge, the song is a celebration of our spirit and all that is a blessing in life. 

The next event is the live-feed pot luck this Sunday, June 8. The next meetup will be Monday, June 30.
