Tensions come from a block or imbalance in a flow of energy within us. When we hold onto the feelings that are moving through us, the pent up energy creates blockages and imbalances that result in tension and pain. When we allow a feeling, as energy in our body, to flow naturally through us without resistance from holding onto the feeling by identifying with it, then we can move with that energy and allow it to guide us through our life experience.

Meditation for Beginners by Stephanie Clements
On the subject of meditation…If you think meditation comes in one brown wrapper, think again! This book has numerous ways to meditate and numerous applications for meditation to improve and enhance specific aspects of your life. I found this a very enlightening tool on making meditation a valuable way to discover the keys to focus, relaxation, securing Universal input, releasing fears, and habit change. Clement’s book is very practical and useful, especially if you’re having difficulty nailing down the concentration that meditation requires.

The Magic of Changing Your Perspective
For most of us, dealing with changes and events that take us out of our comfort zone instantly takes us to a place of fear and negative thinking. It is the rare person who doesn’t emotionally invest the experience with anxiety and assign a negative value to it.
Yet the truth is that all things are neutral, they just are—until we bring our perspective to them and assign value. More importantly, every experience brings with it an opportunity for growth, for greater wisdom, for new knowledge, for redirection from the Universe, for expansion in some way, shape or form.
The task for us as Conscious Creators is to retrain ourselves not to immediately go to that dark place, but instead to seek the light. To assign POSITIVE value to every experience. The best way to do that is to learn new perspectives, and to apply them to each situation. You can magically turn a perceived problem into a blessing by asking the right questions or applying the right filter.
So this article is designed to give you many options on new ways to look at things. By having these “tools” in your tool kit, testing the ones that work best for you and then applying them through practice many times over, you will be able to change your knee-jerk negative pattern of thinking to a welcoming and positive perspective that raises your frequency. And eventually will become your new permanent pattern of perspective.
Here are some really insightful questions that will lead you to look at your perceived challenges, problems and issues as your next opportunities, gateways and gifts:
You undoubtedly know that everything happens for a reason. Here’s an opportunity to look at that reason as Source does. You would not be offered this experience if there was not purpose here for you, your life and your spiritual growth. But the Universe gives you these experiences out of its desire to help you reach your own truth and highest good. Use these questions to be open to seeing a more objective view of what is in your highest good.

I love to walk. When I get out into nature and smell the grasses and flowers, listen to the birds, watch the squirrels, it lifts my spirits and relaxes me. My favorite time to go is in the two hours before the sun sets, at the end of the day when I can let go of the stress of the day and enjoy that "golden hour" of sunlight. Do you have a favorite time of day? Is there something you love to do during that time? Indulge yourself! Find the joy in both the beauty of the moment and the activity you love.
I recently read in a magazine that Natalie Cole said: “I know that God has had my back, even when I was screwing up.”
And I thought, “How profound! What a simple, comforting thought!” GOD HAS MY BACK!
Even for people who have trouble with the concept of “trust and surrender,” God Has My Back is a very simple and elegant way to realize that they are not alone and that they have an amazing support system in place to rely upon.
It’s a great way to realize that even in the worst of circumstances, God’s hand is guiding you out of the morass, and pointing you to the light.
Just think about the times when you might have experienced this support system at work:
God Has My Back!
What a wonderful thought! Even when I make a grievous mistake or am unkind or do self destructive things, God still has my back. And even if I am slapped with the consequences of my bad behavior, that’s still God looking out for me, teaching me that I must be more thoughtful, conscious and compassionate.
What a relief! I am not alone and I have powerful protector! Whether you are a dynamic leader who feels like everything must fall to you and you are alone on the precipice, or someone who feels weak and battered by life– with God at Your Back, you can relax! When you relax, you become more intuitive, more confident, less pressured to make decisions that could be ill considered. Your frequency rises. You manifest more effectively. Your life is easier.
Just imagine going through life feeling that God is always there to nudge you in the right direction or pick up you up when you fall. How would that change the way you feel about your life? Would it make life easier, more comfortable, less harrowing, more encouraging, more hopeful, less strenuous, less taxing, more forgiving? What would change in your attitude if you were always aware that
God Has Your Back!
Whether we know it or feel it, each of us deserves salvation in our lives—and by that I mean deliverance from unhappiness and unpleasant experience. Sometimes we can be the architect of our salvation and sometimes we just need a little help. If God Has Your Back, than you know that salvation is possible…that you can find a way–or that you will be guided to the way–out of misery and pain.
And you know what, if you know in your heart that you have this great protection, than you can call up on it. Whether that is through prayer, meditation, conscious creation or other ways that you can reach out to the divine Universal source, you can speed up your rescue by asking for assistance.
So don’t forget God Always Has Your Back! You can take that to the bank!
Are you an A.M. Bright Light or Nocturnal? I think I mentioned in my last newsletter that I am a morning person. That’s when I am most alert, filled with energy, creative, enthused, most attuned with the Universe and powerful. Throughout the day, these faculties slowly wane until 8 p.m. when I’m largely spent. Don’t ask me to undertake anything that requires clear thinking or lots of energy after 8 p.m. because, intention aside, it may not be my best effort. On the other hand, many people I know don’t even get going until 4 p.m. in the afternoon and they do their best work at midnight or later! So the point is to play to your strengths. Set up your day and schedule your appointments to fit your Circadian rhythm. Don’t try to force important activities into times when you are typically not at your best. Schedule to maximize your energy and sharpness when you need these at peak level. Clearly, you will want to eat right, exercise and take supplements to support you energy level and clear-headedness throughout the day, but even then, you’ll find yourself at your best for certain activities in specific time frames. For instance, I always try to schedule my most demanding business tasks or my writing early in the day when I’m sharpest. I also try to schedule business meetings in the AM when I’m fresh. My workouts are now at 5 p.m. after I’ve completed my intellectual responsibilities for the day. This gives me an added burst of energy at the end of the workday, without having to exercise my mind. Instead, I let my body do the work. Reading is more passive so I save this for 6-8 p.m. By consciously choosing your timing of specific activities, you will find yourself more energized overall because you will accomplish more and have less resistance or friction in the your flow. Find you Circadian sweet spot and exploit it!
In love and light,
