Ask and it shall be given

I have just discovered a book by the name of Ask and it shall be given by Esther Hicks. I am a big sceptic when it comes to these types of things, but for some reason this book appealed to me straight away. I have not finished reading the book, but it has had such an impact on me that I had to share it with everyone. the positive thing that this book shows and that probably appeals to me, is that everything can be changed, and improved, if only you ask for it. You just have to be positive and then positive things will happen in your life. For too long, I have been negative, even before negative things started to happen to me.
I left my job about four years ago, and have tried various small businesses, but each one has not succeeded in the way I envisioned. But with this book, I realized that none of those businesses would have succeeded in any case, because I have a pessimism in the back of my mind to begin with. if I had been more positive about them, then they would have been a success.

I am convinced now that I must just be positive, and then things will get better. I have tried a couple of small things since starting the book, and most of them have succeeded. Now my wife has convinced me to study further, and I will try that, even though I am forty.

The rest of my life will succeed, I am convinced of that.

Abraham Hicks

I have read this book and it is an excellent book. Their website is also very helpful I receive a daily quote which inspires me. My mantra is ‘feel good’, and I work with the various exercises in that book to retrieve the next best thought until I feel good!
Good luck and find ways to think positively to attract positive in your life!
I see you growing and learning to create positive and life supporting thoughts!

Perfect Opportunity

My intention is to be able to take advantage of the perfect opportunity to accomplish a dream.
Our Centre now operates the “Conscious Cafe” a bookstore/cafe in Langley, BC

Supporting Actions:

I am seeing myself sitting in the store, surrounded by great employees, and great customers.
I am talking to a broker about non-profit benefits (I am the pastor of a New Thought Church)
I am KNOWING this is a reality!

Background Information:

I have had a dream for years of opening a bookstore/cafe … creating a community of conscious people – with poetry readings, philosopher’s cafe, music nights, reading groups, etc. Organic products and metaphysical/self-help/spiritual books.
A large coffee shop in the perfect location is closing next week. All I’d have to do is get the bookshelves, and the inventory and paint.
I intend to have this be a Reality!!

I intend to be a customer at your cafe my friend! I love the way your mochas are made, chocolatey and dreamy! And the art on the walls is stunning! You have a knack for choosing really tuned-in, creative and positive people to perform in your place. I just LOVE the atmosphere! I can SEE it!!! You and I will meet soon within the next year, wait and see!!! I am so excited for you!!!

Driving with Competence and Confidence

I have my driver’s license and am a very confident and competent driver. Not only am I consciously competent, but I am unconsciously competent as well. I stay calm and  focused while driving no matter what is happening, and my fear has totally left. I love the feeling of freedom I have and I am so proud of myself for conquering my fear and trusting my abilities!!  I now drive everywhere, unconcerned about what others think, or how I’m doing, because I know I am a wonderful driver.

Supporting Actions:

I have started hypnotherapy to get rid of the fear…I listen to my hypnotherapy cd every night before bed, and try to listen to it before driving lessons as well.

I have taken 2 driving lessons from a qualified instructor, I need 4 more to complete the requirements for my license.

I need to save $600 for the in-class lessons required for the driver’s exam.

I will drive everywhere I can…anytime we have to drive somewhere, I will drive, rather than letting my husband.

Background Information:

I have a major fear of driving…I’m 37 and really want the freedom that comes from having a driver’s license. I’m tired of being a slave to my fear, and tired of relying on others to drive me places, or skipping things entirely because I can’t get to them. If I can do this, I honestly feel that I could do anything!!

I am no expert in this field but everything I had read about affirmations and goals has said “state them in the positive”. If I say to you don’t think about an elephant you immediately picture an elephant. The universe works in the same way. By saying ” I do not panic” all you will attract is panic. Reword this. Use visualization as well.
All the best.

Payoff & Well Deserved Success Online

After years of research and false starts, I have refocused my attention and energies on just two of my websites for selling information products online. I believe strongly in the power of the internet to improve fortunes, and see no good reason why I can’t finally start getting my piece of the pie. I am starting to put things together “properly” in my marketing efforts, and predict that my expensive advertising campaign will pay off…as soon as it starts, which seems to be over a week late. I have lots of hope (and also desparation, because of the local economy & being laid off), so “things have to get better soon”!

To try to be more specific, I see myself earning a decent living from my online efforts, up to $50000 a year for starters, then double that within 12 months.

Other intentions I have had success with so far (after reading The Attractor Factor, which got me started on intentions) are quitting smoking–no cigs for at least 4 months now!) and being a better gardener 😉

So things just have to get better! I’m strangely optimistic, defying reason & logic!

Supporting Actions:

I paid for a huge advertising campaign, have redesigned my website so it’s more visitor and sales friendly, & am expanding my follow up newsletter to stay in contact with subscribers longer.

Background Information:

I am making this intention because I have put over 2 years into internet marketing without any real success or profit, & because I was laid off from bartending & after doing that for 9 years want something better for myself. Also, fulfilling this intention will relieve some pressure from empty rental apartments 7 lack of rental income. I believe I deserve to succeed, & that I’m a late bloomer as far as success goes, but that I can & will succeed, be proud of my accomplishments, & be able to “make a living online”.

I went to your website. Internet Marketing info products is a very competitive market as I am sure you know.

A little advice for what it is worth. Make sure your ad campaigns are taking people straight to a specific product page and not to your main page that shows all of the products you sell.

This does 2 things. It creates less confusion with potential buyers. And it will drastically increase your Google quality score for your Adwords (provided your Adwords wording and the keywords your are targeting match the product.)

Another thing is change the title of your specific pages to match your keywords and the Adwords ad, instead of the URL for the page. This will also greatly improve your Google quality score.

And as you know, the higher your quality score the less money you need to spend to get a good position with your AdWords.

A Smoker’s nightmare

My dad is a smoker and although my sister and I had for years begged him to stop, we’ve backed off and realized that he’ll quit when and if he’s ready. For now, we just let it go and congratulate him when we notice a change in his habit. There’s no sense in bothering him. He knows what he’s doing.

I try not to judge anyone for their smoking habit. It’s a choice and I’m more than willing to help/support a friend or family member if he/she wants to stop.

Some friends give me several comments as below:

I think people say those things because they can’t fathom the idea of others willingly harming their body while wasting money. The thing is that so many people do the same thing with alcohol or overeating, but it’s not as taboo. I agree with all of these points (I’m a non-smoker) but hopefully the smokers don’t take those things as negative, and instead take them to heart as people around them trying to look out for them. It goes both ways on how things should be said and interpreted.

Well I have a smoker in my house and I hope he comes to realize that it’s a bad habit. Like I said, I’ve been guilty of very negative comments directed towards him, and I realize that this must change. What kills me in his case is that he’s in complete denial and is convinced he can stop whenever he can, because he has stopped (for months at a time) in the past.
Never mind that he has relapsed every single time. He goes back to those times as “proof” that he’s not addicted. Oh, he’s also 23 so maybe this explains that :-)

I quit cold turkey. I realized that if anyone else in the world made me stand out in the rain and be miserable once an hour every day all day long, I’d kick them in the groin. So I stopped. 2 years ago.

Now I sniff glue, much more socially accepted, cheaper, and I can sneak it at my desk while working!


Contractions During Pregnancy

The most awful and very common thing that is new is contractions during pregnancy. To prepare a woman to deliver a baby and for her labor, she must have sufficient knowledge about pregnancy and about particular types of shrinks that she’s going to experience during her nine months pregnancy.

There are a a lot of different types of contractions that a woman may experience while in her pregnancy. Each and every single woman must have the knowledge as to how to cope with them. She must also learn how to face them and ultimately manage these contractions. The most common ones are pre-labor contractions that are also known as false contractions. These conditions will basically help your uterus practice how to contract itself and begin the dilating process.

They usually start at the second or may be third phase of the pregnancy period. This is basically squeezing the lower part of the stomach forming tightening in the uterus. These pre-labor contractions usually occur in evening or may be in afternoon particularly when a to-be-mother is hungry, stressed out, tired, or had an exhausted routine day. More physical work than her capacity may also cause such problems.

They are not much painful. A woman can overcome the situation by just changing her position or may be drinking a lot of water during her routine work. Many pregnant women may not even feel such painless contraction. The other very common things faced by pregnant women are early labor contractions. In this condition, the pre-labor contraction does not go away by using any of the ways described but would get prolonged and would grow more strong.

They can be slightly painful and can make pregnant women feel uncomfortable. They may last for a day or more but usually they end up in few hours. Most of the times, they start spreading in the forward direction starting from the back of pregnant woman. It will cause the stomach to get hard. There are many exercises that are recommended for contractions in pregnancy. A to-be-mother should consult a doctor or physician if she has more painful contraction. There are many contractions in which exercise is not advised. But, there are many in which you need exercise.

Exercises to get back to function

I sprained my knee last week by making the mistake of playing basketball.  I thought it might be a lot worse, so I got it x-rayed and examined, and Kaiser said it was just a sprain.  They gave me a knee brace and told me to ice and elevate it, etc.  The joint is still very stiff, but I can walk on it close to normally.  I was thinking about starting some rehab efforts including some swimming and bike riding.  Do you think these are good exercises for the short term and when would you estimate that I could get back to some explosive training : sprints, jumps,exercises to increase vertical jump, and playing some volleyball?  I am missing Estero this weekend for the first time since I started going.  I am anxious to get back to the beach.

Those are all excellent ways to get back to function.  Biking, swimming, massage and walking, all done at a low intensity are great to stimulate blood flow and enhance the rehab process.  I will advise you, however to take your time.  Research shows that it takes approximately 3 days to completely change your walking pattern after an injury.  You will have compensations to address before going back to high intensity exercise.  I recommend following the advice of your physician.  They usually will provide a good conservative timeframe for you.

There Once Was Hope…

In view of the relaunch of Doctor Who – with the wonderful Matt Smith – we thought it was about time that we discussed some of the moments that excited us during Russell T Davies tenure at the helm.

As odd as it sounds – coming from us at least – there were a few incidents that reminded us of classic Who and offered a glimmer of hope that things might have gotten better.

They were few and far between but it’s only fair that we list them. This shouldn’t take too long…

Dalek – The Doctor Gets Scared
This was genius! The reintroduction of the Daleks in series one of new Who, needed to tick so many boxes that it was always going to be difficult.

The job of introducing them to a new, younger audience was never going to be straightforward, things have moved on since the sixties. The Daleks seemingly hadn’t though, their design remained resolutely the same as always. Lights on the head, an eye stalk and plungers and egg whisks for weapons.

It was going to be tricky conveying the menace and power a Dalek held, when they still looked like this.

So with an unchanged design what was needed was a bit of the old acting! Which is what Christopher Eccleston gave us. In spades!

Thanks to Eccleston’s mad, scrambling fear at coming face to face with just one Dalek, the kids – who, this was all new to remember – were going to be under no illusions; Daleks are evil!

Blink – Easter Eggs!
Everybody loves Blink. Everybody. Ask them their reasons for loving it and we’ve no doubt they’ll say it’s the Weeping Angels.

Now as good a villain as they are, they’re not the reason it rocks so hard. No, it’s the easter eggs that solidify this storyline.

Those easter eggs are so neatly tied together and underpin the episode so well, that – as mad as it might sound – you often don’t really notice their criticality to the plot!

Another reason for the success of Blink is Sally Sparrow (played by Carey Mulligan), she more than makes up for the absence of The Doctor and thanks to her it never feels like we’re being short changed.

You see the reason why The Doctor and Martha appear in it so infrequently is that, in order to save the pennies, this episode was filmed simultaneously with another one (Human Nature). Cutting costs on a flagship show? It could only be the BBC!

Blink won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form and Carey Mulligan received the Constellation Award for Best Female Performance in a 2007 Science Fiction Television Episode. Both awards were thoroughly deserved.

The Doctor’s Daughter – The Seven Day War
Now this was very neat, very neat indeed. Two warring factions engaged in a never ending struggle that neither side can remember the reason for.

The two sides have been going at it for generations and it’s only thanks to Donna’s mathematical genius – which also enabled her to pick up the Dewey Decimal system in two days, ho hum – that The Doctor works out exactly what’s been going on.
The Doctors Daughter

You see this never ending, ever lasting war has in reality – thanks to cloning and accelerated growth – has only been going on for seven days. Brilliant!

Silence In The Library – River Song, Echoes Of The Future
This is River Song, by all accounts you’ll be seeing more of her.
Silence In The Library

That little book she’s reading from? That’s her diary, a diary that looks more than a little like the TARDIS. Here’s a closer peek.
Silence In The Library

You see the implication here is that River Song has already met The Doctor, although as The Doctor can’t remember this having happened we can only assume that she’s met a future regeneration. How cool is that?

It’s a lovely little twist and we must admit that we’re amazed it hadn’t happened sooner.

Rise Of The Cybermen – Rose Tyler (In A Maid’s Outfit)
Phwoar! We know it’s bringing the tone down but come on. This is fantastic stuff, Rose, dressed like a maid! Knick-knack-noo!
Rise Of The Cybermen

Let’s leave it there shall we?
