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!!!
