G..I.V.E.

G.I.V.E.

Many of us who are on earth today have come with specific “jobs”. We are here as way showers and many times we may need a little boost to our self-esteem as well as an energy thrust for our purpose. It is all too easy to pay attention to what is not working or what is “wrong”. For that reason I want to share with you an affirmative prayer method I found on line that is based on The Intention Process.

G. Gratitude

I am so grateful to be living my purpose. I look back and see how my path has lead me so beautifully to this point and it is so good. I so love how life is always working out for me and is leading me to higher heights even when I don’t understand how.

I.  Intention

I intend that I am self-realized and self-actualized and that I have become the person who materializes the good that is seeking to express itself as me. I am resolute in my commitment to living in the awareness that God is all that is and that perfection is the state everything exists in now. I intend that my spiritual work is a blessing to many thousands of people and that it enriches their lives in ways that are meaningful to them. I intend that I am divinely supported in every way and that I am free to be all that my soul desires in its evolution as a part of The Divine Whole.

V. Vision

I see a world full of goodness and love. I see my path powerfully unfolding with ease and grace. I see abundance everywhere. And I see that it is for the highest good of all.

E. Entrust

I entrust this intention to the universe. I trust that it is already done and that the work is complete. I now move forward joyfully playing in the consciousness of well-being taking it for granted that it is showing up in my physical experience in just the right way always at the right time. I praise Life for its ability to get it all done! Thank you God-Happening-Now!

It is my hope that some of you will find this prayer helpful on your path.

“CURSE” OF THE BAD HAIRCUT

“CURSE” OF THE BAD HAIRCUT

How could a bad haircut put a curse on your life? Well of course it couldn’t but it could put a dent in your enjoyment of one day or two perhaps the entire week just by the way you focus on it… Just by the way you refuse to acknowledge that it is a very temporary setback and your hair will grow out again… Just by refusing to believe and realize that ultimately you will have a second chance at successful grooming!

Isn’t it odd the way our self-talk can go? “I just know my husband (or wife) won’t like this mess of a haircut. This is just a disaster!  Now how can I go to a job interview looking like this?” We do tend to obsess over things that are so fleeting and basically no big deal.

Why did I start by using a haircut as the subject of my musings? Simply because with a rather insignificant event sometimes it is easier to understand and admit what many times we do to sabotage our own joy. Just as easily I could have used the example of his fancy formal shirt ruined by a wine spill or the elegant dress that shrank to doll-size in the wash. Even if all three things had happened they would not be enough to actually ruin a life!

It is important to realize that any discomforting event will eventually be past history. The quicker we are willing to maintain a positive focus while accepting things as they are right now, the sooner things will change for the better. Holding on for dear life to misery, continually feeding it more energy, just creates more misery and emotional upheaval.

To look at it in a different way, what you resist persists. There is no getting around the fact that the more we push against the existing circumstances, refusing to accept them, the longer they seem to stay with us. The more we hold tight to our unhappy feelings, the more miserable we become.

All of this does not suggest that you should not take corrective action when it is called for but it should be done with a feeling of allowing things to work out in their appropriate timing. Force brings about opposing force. The more we demand situations to change this instant the harder, denser and more unmovable they become.

On any issues larger than a haircut for instance it is perfectly normal to be upset over the loss of a friendship or the passing of a pet. In such circumstances we simply need to limit the amount of time we allocate to grieving and begin to put energy into more progressive pursuits. Such heartfelt losses need not be allowed to ruin endless weeks and months. There will always be other people who will be grateful for your friendship. There will always be loving pets needing you.

I actually have seen people go into mild depression over the fact that their favorite automobile was no longer repairable, simply could not function and had to be “retired”. Life is too precious to waste any of it in ongoing regret or self-recrimination of any kind. I “could have” or “should have” never solves anything.

Each one of us is here on earth to use our wonderful God given gifts and talents while learning our life lessons. If we are to fulfill our destiny we need to pursue our life paths with determined optimism and joy. It is difficult to be productive if we are continually looking over our shoulders at past unhappiness or reviewing current difficulties over and over again.

Think of it this way: one plan didn’t work, but there are other options; the home you wanted was already sold, but there will be a better one; your friend moved away, but you can ease your next door neighbor’s loneliness with a few moments of your company while at the same time making your own feelings lighter in the process.

Keep looking on the bright side and your personal light will shine brighter not only for your benefit but for others. There is never a good reason to concentrate on what you do not want. Look instead to what you can do right now this moment to access your inner joy.

When you can find a reason to be thankful, to be grateful for anything at all, it is much easier to get into your joy. And when you are joyful you will find positive creative ideas will come so easily. Being in joyful gratitude gives you added energy to carry out those tasks that are calling for your special abilities. I believe that each one of you my readers is capable of greatness!

If you need a little help in keeping your thinking on a positive track while stopping all the worrisome “detours”, give me a call. Hypnosis is a quick and effective way to restructure your habitual thinking. With some hypnotherapy you will find yourself believing in “possibilities” rather than “problems”. Inculcating or installing a positive attitude with the help of your subconscious mind allows you to access clearer thinking and simpler solutions to life’s stumbling blocks.

CLEAR:HURTS/ERRORS/PAIN

Many of my clients suffer from their remembered personal mistakes, hurtful criticism from others or similarly harsh memories. Living with the memories of such tightly held negative experiences can keep them stuck in emotional and mental pain, unable to move forward with their desires on their life path.

Worse yet is our tendency as humans to not only remember the bad times but to make these memories even worse with embellishment! In other words not only do we remember he said this, she said that but we begin amplifying it: “I am sure they told everyone I know. No one will ever forgive me…” On and on it goes until the original event has become nearly global in the memory effect’s intensity!

We need to find a way to let the past be over and done in order to move on and enjoy our own lives. Part of the solution is to see absolutely everything as having been an opportunity to learn. All the things that have happened to any of us have brought us to be who we are today in this now moment. Let’s reframe those seemingly bad experiences as life education and needed information.

When I work with someone in hypnosis before I begin I ask a lot of questions. I need to know how I can help them remember their experiences in the most positive way possible. My belief is we need to view all events as either good (“I learned a lot by that!”) or very good (“I now know how to handle it the next time something similar happens”).

If we can eliminate viewing anything as devastating or horrible, we have a “leg up” to making progress. Instead of trying to live it down let us try living it up. Let those events and experiences be a positive. Why and how a positive? Simply acknowledging the instructions it gave us. We now know better ways of dealing with similar events and do not need to return to any hurtful, negative ways of handling life events and the resulting difficult memories.

If your personal self-esteem has been damaged by any life events and you would like to move forward with your life desires in a positive and assured way, call me today. Your successful living and progress is my priority. You do not need to be stuck. Let me set a personal private appointment to help you with any seeming roadblocks.

ROGERS, ARKANSAS!!

Here we are, in Rogers, Arkansas, Jake, Boo Boo and me and so happy with everything. Our new home will be ready for us in just a couple more weeks. In the meantime we are looking at all the beautiful lakes and rivers plus finding our way through so many stores. I have a long history with Arkansas and feel as if I have come home. Soon I will visiting with the “Tuesday Night” healers group at the Ozark Research Center in Fayetteville. Yes, it has been years but I will make up for lost time. Looking forward to seeing all my friends again.

“NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING…”

“NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING…”

Yes, it is a line from the musical “The Sound of Music”. In my mind I can still hear Julie Andrews’s beautiful voice in the movie version. “Nothing comes from nothing. Nothing ever could. So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.”

Doesn’t that sound like what we call our “karmic returns”? In other words it is the deeds you perform, the emotions you send forward, the thoughts you continual rehearse, and your habitual ways of relating to life events that create your life experiences by way of the immutable and universal law of karma.

If you are not thrilled with the situations in your life today, fortunately creating positive change is remarkably simple. As a hypnotist I have helped many people make sweeping changes with the use of hypnotherapy. To create wonderful life affirming results all you need to do is change what you are focusing upon. Bring gratitude, joy, love and light into your thinking and emotions. It is easy to see what isn’t working but much more important and profitable to look for what is possible and beautiful.

I hear you say “but what if this negativity is just from some past life of mine? I can’t change that.” The good news is it makes no difference how an unwanted situation arrived or what drew it into your experience. What does matter is that you begin today to think, feel, speak and act differently, in a much more positive vein. You may well be surprised how quickly you can create beautiful changes to benefit all your days.

Among the many other ways of improving your personal karmic returns is to take a deliberate 2 week news fast: no TV, no radio, no internet. The so called news being spewed forth by the various media is deliberately focused on what is wrong with our world not what is right. Just stop listening to what is wrong. It is much better to believe that within any soul’s action or any groups’ action, no matter how seemingly horrible, there is still the possibility of great light and love present within each individual. All people, regardless of their current actions, are still endowed with a fantastic spirit which can be awakened.

If enough of the earth’s population began using heartfelt gratitude in addition to adopting an unwavering belief in love and light and continually sent those energies forth we could reach the wonderful tipping point of 51%. In other words that percentage of positive energy being poured forth would change the whole world. It could mean the end to senseless acts of violence!

The good news is that reaching the tipping point could begin with you and me using our positive thoughts, actions and emotions. Are you with me? Let’s start today!

HOW ‘NEW’ WILL YOUR NEW YEAR BE?

As we birth the New Year 2016, our thoughts return to the year now past. Perhaps we feel many things could have been better. We see loss in various human arenas…finance, institutions, relationships, and more.

We need to ask ourselves if we want a rehash of 2015 or if we are willing to make the effort to create situations and events in and around us that are truly new. To have a “new” year we must begin to think, act and feel differently about ourselves, our experiences and our abilities.

At this special time of new beginnings I offer these ideas: First, forget the so called “failures” of the twelve months past. Those losses and the actions that created them are over. Instead whip out a sheet of paper and pen. Begin to write everything you did that was a “win”.

Call your list MY SUCCESSES. Documenting your “wins” as a list will be the first step toward your new creation, your new journey. Whatever you did at any time that brought you a good feeling about yourself, your motives and your abilities, write it on your list! The act of writing anything gives it special enlivening energy.

The reason for this exercise is not to encourage living in the past but to allow you to remember and feel those special positive energy and power filled times. What name do you give the power behind those winning memories? Do you think of it as the energy of intuition, Spirit, God, I Am, High Self, Light or Love? Whatever name you give to it that power is still with you to use in any way you can think, dream or imagine.

By making the “My Successes” list you will begin to remember many previously forgotten successful decisions and adventures. Take that energy of success, use it to model your ideal new year.

Did you know that your powerful subconscious will always carry out your orders? Every repetitious thought and emotion you feed to it will be saved, worked with and brought to manifestation. It is a 24-hour-a-day worker. It never becomes tired and it never grows old. Be sure to feed it with your highest thoughts and feelings.

When you access your own “feel good” emotion you have accessed your personally powerful fuel and igniter fluid for constructive manifestation. Throw out any limiting ideas. You know what you desire. Now you have the way to ignite those desires!

It is no secret that most of us can tell you what didn’t work in our lives or what isn’t working. Why fritter away our dynamic energy resources on such a wasteful pastime?

Start cleaning your mental and emotional “house”. When a particular personal habit is a stumbling block, it not only has to be removed but it has to be replaced! It is good to remember that anytime you create a vacuum by removing an idea or emotion, you need to replace it. Otherwise that “hole” will be filled with the “first available”. Most likely it won’t be what you would wish.

As you add to your winning list you will build your confidence in your ability to make changes. The exercise will also bring to the surface new inventive ideas. Start a second list of POSSIBILITIES.

Allow the new ideas to approach you as they are. Just because a particular idea seems beyond your abilities at the moment, write it down anyway. Remember that tomorrow everything can change. What seems impossible today may be right next week.

Do not throw away any of your inspired thoughts. Acknowledge each of them as they arrive. WHEN IN DOUBT…WRITE IT DOWN!

I would like to share with you an excerpt from an e-mail I received from The Intenders group some years ago:

“You are called, now, to give birth to a new way of life for yourself and for all those who walk this world with you. You stand poised at the threshold of great expansion in your perceptions, your possibilities, and your consciousness.

Now is not the time to settle for less or to think small! You are here to rise up and out of the prevailing paradigm of beliefs by shining your light, sharing your joy and your love.”

Happy 2016! May it be your best year yet!

DON’T WAIT!

I woke this morning with tears rolling down by cheeks. No, it was not sadness. It was all because of one highly emotional and powerful idea. Here it is: Don’t wait! Don’t wait until you are perfect. Don’t wait for the best time. Don’t wait until you know exactly how you should begin. Just start. Just shower forth all the Light you have today, this minute. Save this idea of being “perfect” for later. For today, just give your personal light, love, compassion, and understanding in the best way you can.

Everyone on earth today, every animal, every living thing can use more light, more love, more understanding. If you have been locking the best of yourself away until you were sure you had it “right”, until you had refined all your thoughts, all your methods, stop. Begin this minute to pour yourself into your personal idea of Spirit service.

Make a strong definite decision to begin sending this uplifting energy to all life that you contact. Once you have made that purely mental decision, move away from the realm of mind and thought, begin to act only from the depths of your heart and soul.

The pure energy coming from love’s wisdom emanating from the depths of your heart and soul offers the greatest healing stream. It is a vibration that balances, enlivens and challenges.

When you project your personal love and light you become a magnet that draws even more love and light to you. You find yourself in the company of those of similar intent, those who are working from their own highest ideals.

WITH ONE HEARTFELT ACTION AT A TIME, GIVE YOUR LIGHT, YOUR LOVE, YOUR SPIRIT TO THE EARTH AND ALL HER PEOPLE.

You and I arrived on earth at this particular time to express our God given light and love for the purpose of evolving all life. It is our responsibility to hold and send forth as much of this precious Spirit energy as we can.

Waiting until you know the exact “right” way to do this sending of pure light and love, makes no sense. The only way you can perfect your transmission is to begin transmitting. Now is the time to start. Know that you were born with the ability and creativity you need to make a difference.

Years ago I attended a concert at the University of Illinois that continues to live in my memory. Karen Carpenter was singing: “Don’t worry that it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear just sing, sing a song.” I encourage you, begin your song today. “Sing it loud, sing it clear” It is your song and only you know the right words and music.

Life does not get better with hesitation and fear. Life has to be lived to the fullest or it will be pale and lack any demonstrable meaning.

The more you throw yourself into the business of living from your creativity, your Spirit lead ideas, the more wonderful ideas you will have. The more you act on those ideas the greater your benefit to yourself and those around you. You become a powerful energized example of light.

In this time that seems to offer only disruption and chaos, there is also the most dynamic and progressive of possibilities. Wherever you see change that seems so upsetting, know that something better is on its way. You are in the enviable position of welcoming this positive “repositioning” of life as we have known it.

At this particular time in earth’s history we are each asked to step forward to contribute our very best. We are called upon to evolve ourselves to the point that we create and welcome our own ascension and offer the ascension process to all life.

Know that each of you is a powerful being. Individually and together you have access to all the wisdom and energy that you could possibly use. Believe in yourselves and your potential. Today you together with all the other light bearers are creating mankind’s future and earth’s future. You are truly that powerful. You are that important.

I am Reverend Lois Cheney your Prescott Psychic Medium. If I can help you in any way with your life challenges, do call for your private counseling session. I can meet with you in my Arizona studio or speak with you by telephone. Be assured that all appointments are strictly confidential. I offer you a recording of your particular reading for your later review in the privacy of your home.

For those of you who wish to develop your own intuitive abilities, I offer one-on-one private instruction for psychic development and the channeling of energy.

WORDS, THOUGHTS, EMOTIONS

What would you like to change in your experience? Could it be as simple as changing what you have said to yourself and your friends over and over again?

Consider what I have said and thought for years: “Every time, every month when it is the full moon I just can’t sleep. I feel like a prowling animal. Oh dear, I just know I will be awake half of the night!”

What if instead I decided to repeat something different, turning the idea inside out, flipping it over, putting it in reverse. “Oh, the full moon is on the rise. I just can’t wait. You know every time the moon is full I feel as if I am bathed in a silken blanket of shimmering white light! Bring it on Mr. Moon. I love your radiance. You comfort me. I enjoy the best sleep when you are full. I rest as deeply as a sleeping peaceful baby.”

Could it be that all of us have told ourselves things that we truly don’t want? Could changing our thoughts and words make a difference?

Perhaps your often said phrase goes something like this: “Oh what am I going to do. Aunt Tilly is visiting again. I hope she doesn’t stay long. Every visit of hers just makes me angry and sick. Her ideas are crazy. I know I’ll have to go to bed by the time she leaves!”

O.K., what about this instead: “Aunt Tilly! Isn’t she just a piece of work. She and her off the wall ideas make me smile and laugh inside. I wonder what she has come up with this time. I can’t wait to hear her carry on. I just know I will laugh till my sides hurt after she leaves. I get such a kick out of her. Her antics put a smile on my face. She knows no bounds and no barriers. Oh, to be that free. What an imagination!”

Sometimes we are so much more powerful than we realize. Try taking just one of your “oft-said” ideas or words and rewrite the script. You never know. You might be missing a whole lot of fun and positive dynamic change.

What will your new experience be?

HOW NEW WILL YOUR NEW YEAR BE?

As we birth the new year 2015, our thoughts return to the year now past. Perhaps we feel many things could have been better. We see loss in various human arenas…finance, institutions, relationships, and more.

We need to ask ourselves if we want a rehash of 2014 or if we are willing to make the effort to create situations and events in and around us that are truly new. To have a “new” year we must begin to think, act and feel differently about ourselves, our experiences and our abilities.

I AM …..?

What energy are you sending out today? What are you telling yourself, or others, about yourself?
Are you telling your world “I am strong” or “I am weak”? Are you saying “I am certain” or “I am confused”?
Do you chastise and degrade yourself with words like “stupid,” “foolish” or “why would I do something that silly”? Or are you praising your actions “well done,” “that was good,” “I am proud of the result”?

Whatever words you are telling yourself, those words are either true right now, this minute, or they soon will be. The reason is simply because you are declaring it! You have set your creativity into motion. You have that much power at your command!

Choose wisely when you speak or think “I am _ _ _”. Your words and thoughts are important and matter more than you may think. Your faithful subconscious is always listening, always believing anything and everything that you say. Your subconscious is your obedient servant and will begin at once to make your words true.

If you seek more abundance in your life, cease all talk about indebtedness. Speak instead of opportunities. Be openly happy when others succeed. Praise their accomplishments. Acknowledge your own success as well. Wish abundance for everyone and yours will soon make its appearance.

If you desire greater health, stop complaining about any aches or pains. Talk instead of how much enjoyment you gain from your new exercise regimen. Tell yourself and others that you feel better every day. “I enjoy life. I feel great.” Keep at those words until they are true!

Speak and think only the words that represent what you truly wish to manifest in your life. Use your strong emotion to amplify your desires. See and feel the reality of your wishes from the very depths of your soul.

Think only the highest and best, and the highest and best people, places and situations will be drawn to you with the strength of a powerful magnet. Always remember that you are creating your life experience, one word, one thought and one feeling at a time.
Your are in charge of your own powerful energy. At any moment that you choose, you are capable of dynamic, positive change. Decide today to be in control of your thoughts and words.

Build the life that you deserve. Be definite about what you wish. Today and every day, declare your life to be the very best, not only for your good, but for the good of all those who are directly concerned or affected by your life path.“I am healthy, energetic and happy. I am loved and loving. I am prosperous and generous.”

From my heart to yours: May today and every day find you blessing others and being blessed by others. May your life be a blessing to all. I wish for each one of you the spirit-filled, uplifted life that I wish for myself. If I can help you in any way, please call for a private spirit directed psychic reading.
