“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
— Albert Einstein
By now, you may have encountered the works of Esther and Jerry Hicks and the teachings of Abraham, the non-physical beings that Esther brings forth. They are among the most powerful books in the spiritual literature. Their newest volume, The Astonishing Power of Emotions, is an extraordinary exploration of how your emotional responses create your experiences, and how you can use them to inform your reality. The Hicks maintain that we only have control over how we feel about everything in our world, and not the outer world around us. So when faced with challenges, it is our responsibility to find a better feeling emotion, no matter what the challenge. And that better feeling emotion will stimulate a new outcome.
This imminently practical book reviews 35 scenarios that are common to people’s lives (everything from personal relationship issues, to business situations, to personal esteem, to the loss of a loved one or pet, to the care of elderly parents, to interaction with your children, to personal physical illness, to the fear of creating negative thoughts now you know that you are responsible for your thoughts and emotions.) No doubt several of these will resonate with you. In the book, the couple then enumerates precisely the types of thoughts and emotions that will lead you to a better feeling state, one that will elicit happier and more positive future experiences.

For the Conscious Entrepreneur. Here’s a new book I really think is an asset to anyone who is running their own business or looking to do so … It’s by a friend of mine, Christine Kloser.
Entrepreneurs want freedom…freedom to make a difference in the world; freedom to make as much money as they desire; freedom to do what they want, when they want; and freedom to be who they are. But securing that freedom isn’t an easy path for many business owners. However,
Christine’s new book, The Freedom Formula, illuminates the way. By creating an exact formula that powerfully combines spiritual principles with proven business strategies, this author/ entrepreneur has created an easy-to-follow guide to increasing both business success and personal freedom.
Christine derived the principles in the book through hundreds of interviews with leading experts including Walsch, Michael Gerber (The E-Myth), Dr. Joe Vitale (The Attractor Factor), Joe Nunziata (Spiritual Selling), Alexandria Brown (Power and Soul) and Seth Godin (The Dip) among others, coupled with her own personal experience. She takes readers through the peaks and the valleys of her entrepreneurial ventures — showing how those businesses were transformed though the lessons she learned applying specific spiritual practices.
She provides practical guidance on business strategies that streamline success, while offering more peace of mind for the entrepreneur, including ways to ease the load of one’s “To-Do List.” Christine addresses methods to align oneself with the kinds of clients that don’t drain one’s energy and who pay gratefully for the services you provide. She explores ways to design one’s business to ensure that it connects with a ready marketplace, and fulfills a purpose to make a difference in the world. She offers the reader a way to evaluate his or her business — and life — from a “God’s Eye View.” With each step, she shows the conscious entrepreneur how to tap into Source to ease the way forward and open the door for greater rewards.
Neale Donald Walsch, best selling author of Conversations with God, wrote the foreword and he says this of the book, “Christine Kloser beautifully explains how to integrate your spiritual nature with proven business principles to become a successful, conscious entrepreneur.”
The Freedom Formula is available at Amazon.com and www.TheFreedomFormula.com.
Most of us just go about life each day feeling like wind chimes … sometimes we make lovely sweet music and sometimes we are buffeted by gale force winds, with wild dissonant sounds. Often we feel at the mercy of fate, which is handing us some good days and some days that are filled with roadblocks, obstacles, annoyances and frustrations. At the end of the day, we’re so tired from the challenges that we just collapse in a heap with little energy to enjoy our families, friends or quiet time at home.
But what if we could actually shape our day before it begins?
How would life be if we could order our day, just like we order breakfast?
Can I have some fast-and-easy approval on my report, along with my coffee today, miss? I’ll take some pancakes with my on-time air flight!
“Dream on,” you say? Well actually, yes, that’s exactly what you can do to make almost every day a “Dream Day.” You must imagine your next 24 hours in advance. It’s called Consciously Creating Your Day.
Conscious Creation is the act of aligning yourself with the Universe and setting intentions. Science is proving that our thoughts and our emotions are energy and they have the ability to change our reality, to shape the future. Because the entire Universe is a giant cosmic web of energy, when we “transmit” our thoughts and emotions into that web, it has a domino-affect elsewhere on this great connected mesh. Furthermore, this energy of ours has polarity– it attracts and repels.
So on any given day, if your thoughts are negative because you’ve had a fight with your husband, or you feel guilty from eating a pint of ice cream the night before, you will begin your day by attracting all kinds of other unpleasant consequences. It may start in the morning when you accidentally spill the coffee on your skirt, then continue when your computer malfunctions, and then end when you run out of gas on the way home, even though the gauge says “full.” Have you ever noticed how bad days escalate? This is evidence of “UnConscious Creation.” Though you may not be aware of it, you are helping to manifest your own heartache and problems.
On the other hand, if you begin the day feeling joyful, happy to be alive, at one with the world, and excited about what you will do that day, it is likely that your day will continue to be a winner. And even if you are faced with an obstacle, you will handle it with aplomb and it will disappear quickly. You experience ease, speedy action on your desires, and effectiveness. You are drawing to yourself experiences that support your own sense of goodwill. This is like sailing with the wind, instead of against it.
So can you actually control having more good days? Yes, you can! You can begin to practice Conscious Creation.
Each day before you begin your workday or you embark on your tasks for that morning, you can do the following:
By Consciously Creating your day, you are increasing the odds that you will indeed have a felicitous experience. This is not to say that you won’t encounter problems and obstacles. But you will have reduced the number and the degree. And more importantly, you would have put yourself into a calm and productive mindset to deal with the situation in a positive and effective way, instead of escalating the problem with negative energy that you dispense unconsciously. Life will become more effortless, struggle-free, stress-free and enjoyable. You’ll have energy left over at the end of the day to play, entertain friends, share experiences with your husband or interact with your children.
What is truly exciting about Conscious Creation is that it is so empowering. You have the ability to shape and mold your own future–one day at a time. What could be better than that?
This week I had a note from a dear friend to say that she and her husband are retiring from their teaching jobs and moving from California to New Mexico. It was a shock! I had thought I had another year or
two before they retired to travel up to visit them only an hour away.
But economics being what they are, the high school district offered them a great buy-out a year early and they took it. And that made
me realize how much time I HAVEN’T spent with them when I could have…and now they will be going away.
There are two positive aspects in this … I do have a few months in which I can go visit before they leave and now I have a place to visit in Las Cruces! But this experience reminded me that our time with the people that illuminate our spirit is often on our back burner. Make time for your dear friends a front-burner priority! It’s a decision you’ll always be happy you made.
Everyone loves the free flights that come from racking up frequent flyer miles. There is, however, another kind of rewards program that pays even bigger dividends — the High Frequency Flyer program.
According to science, we are all beings of energy. Our atoms and molecules vibrate at certain frequencies and generate waves of energy. Quantum physics is revealing that our emotions and thoughts produce energy packets that have the ability to create or influence our future. Humans are beginning to understand that whatever we think is what we create. If we think certain types of thoughts, we are more likely to manifest — or Consciously Create — what we desire.
The Universe resonates on the highest of all frequencies, one that corresponds with love. Other high frequencies are: kindness, compassion, joy, forgiveness, courage, generosity, acceptance, understanding, patience, gratitude, peace, optimism, integrity and sincerity. Low frequencies are: hate, anger, envy, fear, frustration, pessimism, impatience, doubt, guilt, despair, dishonesty, revenge, selfishness, ingratitude, intolerance, sorrow, shame and prejudice. Humans, in general, resonate somewhere in the middle, flawed creatures that we are!
The higher we resonate, the faster we are to manifest dreams and desires because we’re transmitting on the Universe’s frequency. As such, we are more likely to attract the goodwill stored within the Universe’s energy reserves and speed the process of Conscious Creation. Essentially, we are just going with the flow!
Dr. Valerie Hunt, professor of psychology and physiology at UCLA, revealed in studies that high frequency energies are emitted by individuals who have supreme moments of high consciousness during meditation. These people experienced an immense “knowing” of wisdom, a sense of oneness with the Universe, an infinite sense of love and peace. This is what many spiritual leaders of Eastern philosophies experience in their practices. But it is not required that you be a monk or yogi to draw from the Universal energy flow. Anyone can do it by practicing high frequency thinking and generating high frequency emotions.
Being aware of your low frequency thoughts, emotions and habits will allow you to start “rethinking your future.” Consciously turn off negative thoughts and replace them with positive. Rather than complaining about snarled traffic, think and believe the road is opening up ahead of you. Rather than being angry at a co-worker, send waves of love and have faith that your colleague will fix problems willingly.
Once mastered, this skill helps raise your frequency and assists you in Consciously Creating a brighter future. Previously, your low frequency traits manifested things that made life a struggle. Start sending high frequency energy to the Universe and watch a more fulfilling, happier, easier life unfold.
Become a High Frequency Flyer and reap the rewards of an energy-empowered, Consciously Created future.

"If you do My Will as though it were Your Will, I will do Your Will as though it were My Will."
— The Divine Source, according to The Talmud
When journalist Lynne McTaggart was writing her groundbreaking book The Field, chronicling the evolution of the science of consciousness, she became acutely aware of the power of thought to influence the world around us. And she then went back into the field, looking for more scientific evidence that demonstrated how intention could be directed for purpose. McTaggart then took the next leap to look for specific elements that must be present to make intention effective and how one could apply that information. Lastly, she wanted to prove to the skeptical world that focused intent could create measurable results and to that end, her book is actually an invitation for readers to participate in ongoing experiments that demonstrate conclusively the power of thought. This is a wonderful book that significantly adds to our understanding of Conscious Creation.
