Go and Get Inside of Your Vortex!

Inspirational Material by Abraham Hicks

Video by Abraham Hicks Fan (YouTube)

Content by Abraham via Esther Hicks


Vortex:

Your "vortex" as described by Abraham Hicks is the place where you are connected to your Source Energy and/or Being (you may call this God, Universe, Creator). So when the vortex is described, it is all about alignment and your connection to something Higher. When you are in your vortex, you are in alignment with who you really are.  

Great Highlights focusing on the feeling that you can conjure when thinking about, feeling or being in the"vortex" start at 17:35.

"I love the feeling of the vortex.

I like feeling good.

I like knowing my power.

I like feeling clarity.

I like feeling frisky.

I like feeling fun.

I like feeling/doing well.

I like rendez-vousing with good things.

I like having good timing.

I like the feeling of contentment.

I like the feeling of passion.

I love a feeling of satisfaction.

I love a quiet moment."

Remembering and Honoring Louise Hay


The love of the Creator surrounds me, dwells within me, goes before me and smooths the way for me. ~Louise Hay

Before there was "The Secret," there was a company called Hay House, founded by a woman who was thrust quite unexpectedly into a movement that she would lead and come to be associated with for decades. It was called, "positive thinking," "self-help," alternative medicine, quackery, foolishness and many other names with positive and negative connotations.  That woman, was none other than Louise Hay and she basically studied and changed her own life before encouraging all of us that, we indeed, could do the same. We were all, indeed, connected to a higher power, to something bigger and that influence could propel us above any minor ailments, challenges or obstacles that we were currently maximizing, feeling or experiencing. We could and can actually change our lives when we change our thoughts. 


"Several times throughout the day I let go of limited identities and remind myself of who I really am--a Divine, magnificent expression of life, created by a loving and infinite Intelligence." ~Louise Hay

Hay was a visionary. She helped individuals suffering with AIDS, long before it was fashionable or acceptable to do so and shortly thereafter, she became the face and name of a movement that gave hope to the hopeless as well as those who held impoverished minds and spirits.

"One day, I discovered magic. If I could really love myself, really love myself, incredible miracles would occur in my life. " Louise Hay

Many years ago, I read her best-selling book, "You Can Heal Your Life" and I was ever grateful to know that I could control my thought patterns and that anything that I focused on would expand. I also learned that "loving myself" was not vain or selfish but was necessary if I ever wanted to succeed or realize any of my dreams.  Those concepts have forever changed my life. We are indeed masters of our own fates, connected to a Power, a Being and a Knowing that is bigger than anything we can see and one that will lead us through and above anything. 

"My relationship with myself is eternal so I choose to love and accept myself and to talk to myself as I would to a beloved person in my life. ~Louise Hay

If you have never heard of Louise Hay, do yourself a favor and google her, visit the Hay House website or pick up one of her incredible books. You will not be disappointed and will probably feel a little lighter in doing so!

Although she is physically gone, her spirit and her work will live on forever.



Thank you Louise Hay for everything!

Wondering and Wandering

User Friendly Inspiration: Wondering and Wandering


“Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations. I may not reach them, but  can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.” 
~Louisa May Alcott

Question, what can we fantasize about achieving in life beyond the ordinary, beyond what we currently see?

It all starts in the imagination, in our minds and it all starts with our thoughts.

What kinds of thoughts are we replaying everyday in our heads?

Are we operating on automatic or are we taking time everyday to consciously focus on those things that actually matter in our lives? It’s makes a difference. 

What do you image in your mind or tell yourself?

Are you complaining? Are you constantly talking about how hard it is to make ends meet and then wonder why this condition keeps showing up in your life?

You are creating it with your powerfully focused attention on that condition.

It is because you image it and remind yourself daily and it is so.

In your mind, do you see things working out or not.

One of my favorite mind mantras is, “Everything always works out for me. I just know that everything always works out for me.” I find these statements to be more effective than the alternative (like "nothing ever works out for me"). Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I never have issues or challenges pop up but I sure move quicker through them than I have ever did before in my life. I’m sorry, life is too short to dwell in the negative, to give my power to anything that will drag me down to the gutter. I prefer to look and reach up as quickly as possible and connect to source.


There are many ways to connect to source (God, the universe, the creator or any other name that you prefer. Here are a few of my favorites.

1) 15 minute meditation. There are some quick and easy ones available on YouTube or you can choose to sit in a chair and focus on a sound, or a hum (refrigerator, birds outside) that will help you clear your mind and just focus. Sometimes, if I am having trouble of just clearing my mind, I will silently state, “Thank you, thank you, thank you” and it helps to calm and focus me.

2) Prayer. Written (silent) or Affirmed (out loud) always helps you to recognize and acknowledge a Higher Power (as well as help you to reconnect to source).

3) Going for a walk, getting outside in Nature. As the weather breaks, it’s much easier for us in 4 season states to begin to enjoy the blossoming of Spring and revel in the newness of another season (puts our lives and worlds in perspective).

4) Journaling can help you get your thoughts out and allow you to clear your head. Some individuals also use their writing to consult and talk to Source. I like making daily gratitude lists so that I acknowledge all of the expected and unexpected good that comes into my life.

5) Music. Music is a wonderful way to get uplifted and for some a way to connect to Source. I personally love inspirational songs that help me remember that I’m strong, I’m possible and created to soar!

We have been given a powerful gift that we can use for our benefit or detriment. When we choose to use our imagination, we realize that we can leap, create, accomplish any thing that our heart desires. We can begin to see our lives in new and renewed ways. We can see our futures as we have never dreamed them before. We can begin to dwell on these thoughts and create a new life before any one thing changes in our actual physical life but to get to the physical, the stuff, we have to see and believe it in our minds, our imagination. You have to image it and feel it.

What would you like to see or have happen in your life today?

Can you see it? Can you feel what it would be like to have, be or do it?

Is it clear? Write it down. Get into it. Dwell on it. Live it out loud first in your mind. Write down as many of the juicy details as you can. Feel it!



 “The body travels more easily than the mind and until we’ve limbered up our imagination, we continue to think as though we had stayed home.” 
~John Erksine

"May our bodies take us to spaces and places where our minds 
can wander and wonder."
~Me!

Everyday Grace 4

User Friendly Inspiration: Gratitude and Grace 4


How important is it to control your thoughts, your moods or your vibration?
According to Abraham Hicks, it's everything and we must learn to train ourselves to FEEL GOOD and once we embrace feeling good, everything that we desire flows to us much easier.

Here's a quick video on taking baby steps toward feeling better by using as little as 17 second blocks a day:

YouTube Video by Z. Zeahorse
Words and Audio: Abraham Hicks

One way to feel better everyday is to take a few minutes and create a gratitude list. I bet that you could easily hit 17, 34, 51, 68 seconds and more by just engaging in what is already working in your life.

Check out my post HERE on how to find something, anything to feel good about!

3/25 List of Gratefulness:

I'm thankful for the rain that is turning the almost green grass into pretty green grass!



Hmmmm good, thankful for picking up butter rum syrup for my coffee at Gloria Jeans!



Always grateful for new inquiries and requests for my services, help or work.

Everyday Grace 3

User Friendly Inspiration: A Moment of Grace


Everyday is a day to find something to be thankful for if we open our minds, hearts and eyes to see!

I want to create a place where you and I can share in the bounty that we have (right in front of us) in our lives. So often we take for granted the little things that actually make our lives worthwhile. 

India Arie "Little Things"
IndiaArieVevo (YouTube)


We can become so focused on things that are not happening for us or going wrong in our lives that we (sometimes) completely ignore or lose sight of those things that have gone right. When we learn to pay attention to the positive things and/or where we want to go rather than where we have been, we can create the lives that we are yearning for......more good can get in.....

Today (3/24), I am grateful that I was able to get some pleasant walking in outdoors and it did not rain as it had been predicted.

I love that I was able to work with ease and able to complete a project quickly.

Lastly (for today's post), I'm also thankful that I was able to laugh and joke in the grocery line yesterday with strangers as we all gazed at the beautiful and bright daffodils.
