Ramona welcomed the group via zoom from California and had members introduce themselves.
Eddie Conner inspired us with a meditation. A big thank you to Eddie for always providing inspiring meditations.
Ramona reminded the group that relationships are not only with those we love, but also with friends, people we work with or live near, etc. She asked the group if all their relationships were good. Relationships reflect aspect of ourselves. Sometimes the things we see in others that we don’t like are reflections of things we don’t like about ourselves. And, whatever we are living now is because we vibrated it into our own life experience.
The opening video was “The art of renewing your relationships”.
Some members made the following comments about the video:
-We are of no help to anyone when we dip into that “sorry” phase.
-Humor adds a positive light and can keep relationships going strong.
-Give to others only when coming from a good place.
-Offer guidance only when you feel good.
If someone is addressing you from a low vibration and complaining, etc., just say to yourself “I don’t care”. It lightens up the spirit internally so we release negativity and allows us to not drop our vibration to their level.
Stop focusing on what you don’t like and your energy will immediately turn around. When we feel negative about someone we should remember all the things that are good about that person which places us in a feel-good frequency. Make lists of things we appreciate because it perpetuates more things to feel grateful for. Appreciation is a form of love and makes everything easier in life.
Acknowledge the good things and focus on them. This will strengthen your personal relationship with yourself and others.
Be aware of your emotional negative triggers and flip yourself back up to the fun, beautiful emotions of a high vibration.
Focus on every person’s value, gifts, strengths. These positive aspects will place you in a higher, better relationship with yourself and others.
Not everyone is like-minded or capable of maintaining a high vibration, or may actually like complaining, etc. Keeping a high vibration may result in some of our friends drifting away. We refer to this as “vibrating them out of our lives.”
The second video was “People will rise or lower to your expectation of them 100% of the time”.
Everyone we know can be really high or really low based on our vibration. Instead of holding your loved ones in their old space, reframe them and hold them in a higher space. Think about something positive about your relationship with that person from the past. Rid yourself of limiting beliefs.
Sometimes when someone does something to irritate you, it may be that you see something in them that you realize is one of your own faults.
Staying in the “now” is important. Staying in our core essence is easier when we choose to stay in the now. Be appreciative; focus on what feels good; choose self-nurturing; be light. Take care of yourself first because you set the tone for interaction with others. If you notice a pattern within yourself that is not serving you, reestablish new emotional patterns. Abraham’s step 5 is another way to stay in a feel-good place when we stumble.
Appreciation is sincerely the key to self-love and to loving others. Love yourself first, then others.
Ramona read the following Abraham quote – “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.”
Ramona did the envelope exercise where everyone wrote the name of someone with whom they have issues. Then opening the envelope there were two slips of paper with the following: “______________ You’re off the hook. My happiness depends on me!” Then we tore them up and released them!
Live life to the fullest – we’re on the leading edge. And remember – it’s not about them. It’s about you! Come to every relationship with a pure heart.
The closing video was “All that we share”.
