What about love?

Deeply, passionately enamored with something, anything

Love will find you in the innocence of night and re-kindle that spark

The very scent of desire wafts about your nose and beckons you to come hither

Now from behind you, you hear the slow steady insistent beat of a rhythm

You’ve heard this rhythm before, it’s the one that calls you out towards being something more

You breathe in sync to the rhythm with this river of breath and it pulls you in so slowly, so seductively

You can no longer contain it, deny or delay it.

This is what you came here for, to ride the wings of desire, to gallop across a sky and paint it with the rainbows of your heart’s desire

Now when you lose touch with this passion, remember this place,
be ever faithful to your heart’s calling.

It is as vast as infinity and as wide as your love for it.

After the storm, a rainbow comes – someone has painted their glory across the sky.

They say don’t die with your music still in you.

I say don’t die with your heart’s desires still in you.

This is the second highest ranked post for having been shared through Internet circles.  Five years since its original posting, it certainly deserves another read through:


These are affirmations written by Louise Hay.  Anyone working with
forgiveness/self-forgiveness and EFT, I think these would be wonderful
to turn into an EFT script.  They stand alone well as affirmations, if you
believe them.  If you don’t believe them, you can tap on that too, by saying
how you don’t believe you are ready to be healed or whatever affirmation that
doesn’t resonate with you yet.  “I don’t believe, I don’t think I’ll ever believe,
it’s taking me so long to believe, I do this stuff over and over and it still
doesn’t sink in”.  Those are just examples, take your disbelief, blow it up
as big as you can while tapping and watch what happens, it has a tendency
to just dissipate and be neutralized.

The door to my heart opens inward. I move through forgiveness to love.

Today I listen to my feelings, and I am gentle with myself. I know that
all of my feelings are my friends.

The past is over, so it has no power now. The thoughts of THIS moment create
my future.

It is no fun being a victim. I refuse to be helpless anymore. I claim my own power.

I give myself the gift of freedom from the past, and move with joy into the now.

I get the help I need, when I need it, from various sources. My support system
is strong and loving.

There is no problem so big or so small that it cannot be solved with love.

I am ready to be healed. I am willing to forgive. All is Well.

When I make a mistake, I realize that it is only part of the learning process.

I move beyond forgiveness to understanding, and I have compassion for all.

Each day Is a new Opportunity. Yesterday is over and done.
Today is the first day of my future.

I know that old, negative patterns no longer limit me. I let them go with ease.

I am forgiving, loving, gentle, and kind, and I know that Life Loves Me.

As I forgive myself, it becomes easier to forgive others.

I love and accept my family members exactly as they are right now.

As I change my thoughts, the world around me changes.

I forgive myself for not being perfect. I am living the very best way I know how.

I cannot change another person. I let others be who they are, and I simply love who I am.

It is now safe for me to release all of my childhood traumas and move into love.

I know that I cannot take responsibility for other people. We are all under the law of our own consciousness.

I return to the basics of life: forgiveness, courage, gratitude, love, and humor.

Everyone in my life has something to teach me. We have a purpose in being together.

I forgive everyone in my past for all perceived wrongs. I release them with love.

All of the changes in life that lie before me are positive ones. I am safe.

after you hold tight to the story
you may want to re-write it
but words don’t come

they don’t ask you to
change the belief
honor the pain
forgive yourself
or any other

the night is heavy
the day is light
it doesn’t matter

tell me what you’ve lost
I will surely tell you what you’ve found

you don’t have to die to ride
the softest wave
back home

floating on your back
letting life carry you

back to a nameless place
where Life sustains you

invisibly with its seamless love
weaving through your days
and nights

it’s not waiting for your gratitude
or your forgiveness
or your redemption

Innocence waits for nothing

It has no opinion of your story
holds no grudges,
makes no conclusion
knows nothing of your suffering

Innocence doesn’t age or remember
Holds no deep pockets filled with unending rules
It carries only one inherent knowing:
it knows the wholeness

It will ask only one thing of you,
that you be willing to hear it’s resounding chorus

It’s a sound like nothing at all
it sounds like

We are now past the 10 day Hay House global summit.  It’s Day 11 and Louise Hay has an hour session with her CEO.  Below are highlights:

Louise Hay speaking on Bruce Lipton’s idea: When we think in a conscious manner we are only using 5% of our brain, and the other thoughts we are thinking are downloads of thoughts we are thinking that were projected on us when we were very little children.  So it’s all other people’s opinions.  So in other words, most of the thoughts are all other people’s opinions and if you are thinking thoughts that are making you feel bad you are not thinking your own thoughts, you are thinking thoughts that you learned as a child.

Now me interjecting: We pick up other people’s thoughts from all over the place all day long every day.  We don’t know whose thought it is: is it the neighbor’s, the guy that’s in the grocery line in front of you, is it your father’s, your mother’s, your school grade teacher’s, your sister’s, your brother’s, the peer that embarrassed you.  We don’t know where it came from, but we know one thing: if it doesn’t make you feel good … then stop, just stop, it’s not *your* thought.  It’s a thought you adopted unwittingly as your own but it belonged to someone else.  Send it back to the ethers.  It doesn’t belong to you.  If it’s not a thought that takes you back to Original Grace, it’s not yours.

More from LH: So you can say to them, these thoughts are not mine! (Me again: Sonia Choquette has a great idea to take thumb and forefinger together as a means of anchoring, while affirming these thoughts are not mine.)

More LH — Now, give yourself a lot of positive affirmations:
I am loving and lovable.
I deserve the best.
All is well in my world.  People love me;  I love people.
I have a job that really satisfies me.
I live in a beautiful home that is wonderful for me.
I have great friends.
My health is good and getting better all the time.

You want to fill yourself with the right messages.

LH: Deep down you know that you are wonderful and you are worthy of living a good life.  All is well.  I like to get people to say over and over again:

Life loves me, life loves me.  I love life. If you woke up every morning saying life loves me and every time you step out your door you say life loves me and every time you open a door you say life loves me. Every time you meet with people, or meet new people you know, you say life loves me and you get that ingrained in your consciousness … your life is going to be so much better.

Life loves you.  All is well.

I’ve mentioned before that I used to subscribe to “this week’s powerful question”.  Somehow I seem to have fallen off the email train, but undeterred I now make up my own questions.  These are not designed to be readily answered.  Some of them have a built-in alarm clock that snaps me awake out of the seductive trance we all fall prey to from time to time.  Some of them are inspiring, and some of them hang there and remain a question that can’t be answered by conditioned mind, more by the willingness to openly explore how it may operate in my own life.  And then the further readiness, to gently navigate back on the self-friendly path.

So … today’s inquiry:

Who am I without my history?

Let’s try that again:

Who am I without my Hi-Story?

Grace_wordleI am continuing to listen to the Hay House online global event.  Today I am highlighting Michael Neill’s interview.  He has an interesting take on the meaning of the biblical Garden of Eden.

“We were all born in Eden.  We were all born in a State of Grace.  The story of the fall from Eden, is the story of each one of us going from the innocence and grace that we are born into, eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  In my world, the tree is simply the world of personal thought, where we begin to create our own world, our own experiential reality, via this amazing gift we all have — to think — and then we get lost in that.  We get detached from the Garden and we think that it’s this place outside that we then have to strive to get back to.  But the return to Eden is only ever one thought away, because the moment you step outside your personal thought system you drop right back into that place of Original Grace.  You drop right back into that Garden, and it’s as if you never left.  Now the truth is, you’ll leave again because the nature of thought is: we are not going to stop thinking any time soon in our lifetime permanently. What happens is, you start to realize, either I am living in my thinking or I am living in Original Grace, then it gets uncomfortable when my thinking takes me away from that Grace, that peace and clarity; so it becomes easier and easier for me to return to Original Grace.”

I would add that Original Grace is only one breath away.  Ahhhh, deep conscious breath everyone.  Fill those lungs with a big In-SPIRIT-ation, let it slowly go and flow all the way through every little pore, sinking deeper into that place that’s never left you, not even for a millisecond – Original Grace.

If you haven’t been able to check in on this inaugural free global online event at Hay House, there’s still time, it lasts through June 10th.  The day’s speakers will be available for just under 24 hours.  This is a phenomenal opportunity, but don’t fret if you can’t listen in, at least for today, the Bethie fairy has transcribed some more highlights for you.

Marianne Williamson speaks on what A Course in Miracles has taught her:

“…the door to peace lay in my forgiveness and love and reaching out in compassion to the person in front of me.  This is not about belief, but experience and I would only experience the peace of God to the extent to which I sought to be an element of peace in the lives of others.  When you know every thought of attack towards anyone is a sword that is dropping on your own head, and when you know that your willingness to see the innocence in another person, then therein lies your capacity to experience your own innocence.”

Jack Canfield was also a speaker, and for all of you writers, I heard him recount that his “Chicken Soup for the Soul” was rejected 143 times!  The whole series has been read now by more than a half a billion people!

Dr. Robert Holden

“Dear God, help me see the truth about myself, no matter how beautiful it is.”   (Love!)

Alan Cohen

“De-pression means there is something pressing in on you.  The best cure I know for de-pression is EX-pression.  You cannot be depressing and expressing at the same time.  If you can take that energy that is pressing in on you and gracefully re-direct it to bring it forth and press it out, then you are taking the same power that was working against you and you are making it your friend; it becomes your ally.”

Gay Hendricks

“Anytime we say things to ourselves or to others, that we don’t have time for that, we are making ourselves a victim of time   The big discovery I made is that I am the source of time and I can make up as much as I want to do the things i want to do.  The reason that works that way is because I quit thinking of myself as the victim of time.  I realized suddenly if I wasn’t speaking as the victim of time, wait a minute! … the other possibility was that maybe I was connected to the source of time!  I realized if I just completely let go and just owned my connection with the source of time, I could make up as much as I wanted to do whatever I wanted to do with it.”  (Wow, what a brilliant concept and so simple.  No maybes about it, if we are connected to Source, then we are connected to it’s unlimited supply!  Read below for a really nice dovetail on this point.)

James F. Twyman

“For most Law of Attraction techniques the foundation is the statement – I want, as opposed to the statement – I Am.  We know that I Am is the name of God, this is the presence of the Divine.  I Am that.  It’s not something that I want.  It’s not something that I hope to have someday.  I already Am because I Am claiming the authority and the divinity of my Creator which is, of course, All things.  When you look at the statement I want, obviously there is something behind that, the sponsoring thought, which is – I don’t have it already.  It’s not something I have that’s in my energy field.  But the statement – I Am, what it does is, it creates an energy field, it creates a magnetic force that is a thousand times more powerful.”

James Twyman, as he continues to comment on the idea of oneness, I Am-ness:

“How do we allow a concept to become a real force in our lives?  That’s such a good question and there’s no real easy answer because it’s not something that we can do, but it is something that we can undo.  Maybe that’s the best way to say it.  Undo this delusion that we have created, that we are separate, vulnerable, alone, that we are here to fight and survive that our physical existence is who we really are, to undo that belief.  …I realize that every moment is an opportunity, right in front of me, to see the truth, to experience oneness or to see the Beloved as I call it.”

Hay House is putting on a global online event interviewing all the teachers that we know and love and many, many more.  This is a 10-day free event, and it’s in its second day.  Today begins with Esther Hicks who does then channel Abraham; Marianne Williamson follows her.  You can register for it at Hay House.  These interviews last about 1 to 1.5 hours each.


Today I’ve chosen to highlight Anita Moorjani.  She had a near death experience, and has written about it along with the gifts her illness taught her in the book “Dying to Be Me”.


Regarding illness: “It’s not your fault.  It’s not my fault I got cancer; it’s not your fault you got cancer.  Believe it or not, it’s a gift, even if it doesn’t feel like a gift right now, it is a gift.


Life is a gift and every challenge in life is a gift.  Cancer didn’t nearly kill me, in fact, it saved my life.  I was killing myself before that.  I was suppressing who I was.  I was treating myself like a doormat.  I was making myself small, so others could feel big.  I was forsaking myself.  I was saying no when I meant yes, and yes when I meant no.  I never allowed myself to be the magnificent soul that I had come here to be.”


Later she states: “…Be who you are, you are not your illness.  Don’t make the illness the focal point of who you are, and don’t blame yourself for having an illness.


For those of us who have been on this journey of self-improvement or self-help, those of us who read a lot of books and go to a lot of seminars…we are the most critical of ourselves, because we feel we have learned so much, read so much … we say: I’ve read all these books, gone to all these seminars, what is it I am doing wrong?  I just want to tell you:


Don’t. Be. So. Hard. On. Yourself.


It is this self-criticism; it’s this blaming yourself that is the most damaging thing.  We say: what am I doing wrong?  STOP.  Just STOP everything and all you have to do is just say:


Where am I not loving myself?
Where am I not allowing myself to feel unconditional love for myself?


And that is it.  That’s all.”


Later in the event, she talks more about how quick we are to criticize ourselves.  She wants us to re-train ourselves and come up with five compliments you can give yourself every single day and make them different compliments each day.  She suggests you keep a daily journal and “you will start to realize that there’s a lot of good stuff in there, there’s a lot of good that you do, there’s a lot of good things that you are and you need to know that about yourself.”


Ok, who’s in on starting this daily journal?!  I am!!
