Our Skype guest was Eddie Conner who provided reflections on 2010 and a plan to follow for the new year. Here are his suggested steps.
OUT YOUR PASSIONS.
Get your passions outside of your inner self and on to paper or canvas and into your life. Share your passions with like minded people who appreciate your Passionate Perspective.
TELL A NEW STORY THAT MATCHES YOUR DESIRES.
OBSERVATION OF CELEBRATION:
What we observe, we attract.
What we think about, we attract.
What we feel strongly about, we attract.
What we vibrate, we attract.
Choose to observe things that cause you to celebrate. Observe beauty, kindness, loving people, places, circumstances and situations from 2010 to insure a brilliant 2011.
WHAT ARE YOU TRACKING?
Are you tracking your strike outs or your wins?
COUNTING 2010 WINS AND CREATING HEAVEN IN 2011.
Here is a soul exercise that will activate the wins you had in 2010 three times over, which layers the energy of appreciation then projects this energy into your next year, and the next, and the next.
1) Write down a list of what you appreciate.
2) Read the list back to yourself SLOWLY until you feel appreciation in your heart and abdomen.
3) Read the list aloud as if you're reading it in front of a group of people.
LASTLY - MAKE A DECISION.
Decisions are more powerful than second-guessing your desires. Even a bad decision summons more life force energy to us and through us than indecision.
AND BEST WISHES FOR A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON AND A GREAT NEW YEAR!
By popular demand, here is Barb VerCande's recipe for Indonesian Sweet Potato & Cabbage Soup
1 Tbs grated peeled ginger root
2 garlic gloves, minced or pressed
1/2 tsp cayenne, or to taste
1 Tbs coconut oil
1 1/2 chopped onion (I used one onion finally chopped)
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 1/2 Cups chopped cabbage (about 1/2 small cabbage)
2 1/2 Cups diced sweet potato (1 lb) I use 3-4 sweet potato
1 quart vegetable broth
1/2 cup almond or cashew butter (I use cashew)
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 Tbs soy sauce
In a pot on medium heat cook ginger, garlic and cayenne in the coconut oil before adding onion and salt. Cover and cook, stirring often until the onions soften, about 5 minutes.
Stir in cabbage and sweet potatoes. Add 3 1/2 cups of broth. Cover, increse heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. In a bowl, whisk together the almond/cashew butter with remaining
1/2 cup of broth until smooth. Add mixture to soup along with tomatoes and soy sauce. Simmer covered until all vegetables are tender.
If you would like a smoother soup you can take a few cups out and puree it then add it back to the rest of the soup.
Next Meeting is Monday, January 24, 2011.
