A Great Chasm

As you go the way of life you will see a great chasm
Jump.
It’s not as wide as you think.

Native American Proverb
Into the Abyss

I read Into the Abyss this past summer and was blown away.  If you’d like to know what the book is about, feel free to open the preceding link.  It will bring you to Scranton Page Turner, one of my other blogs I write. Creating abundance doing what I love has been an amazing experience.  I get to read for a living.  Who else can say that?  Many people obviously.  However, I’ve learned since being in this worldview I’ve been experiencing for sometime now, that as Law of Attraction suggests, our thoughts do indeed create reality.  Because I CHOOSE to see my career in a certain light, because I CHOOSE to see I get to read for a living that’s what becomes my reality.

Chasm

I find inspiration for Wisdom and Life everywhere as you can clearly see from this above quote.  As with photography, when I’m constantly seeing with my photographer’s eye, everything quote, every phrase I come across becomes fodder, becomes as my friend, Jason Marchi likes to say becomes grist for the mill.

 

The above passage can be used in almost every aspect of life.
Don’t be afraid.

 

Life is full of challenges, full of chasms.  You can’t move forward if you always choose the easy path.  You won’t live life fully unless you take some risk, unless you jump occasionally.  You’ll stagnate if you constantly run from that chasm.  There will be no success.  Life without risk is not the life I want.  No one should want that life!

 

It’s not as wide as you think.
The chasm is NEVER as wide, the challenge you THINK you have is NEVER as challenging as you make it out to be.  After you’ve faced it down, after you’ve jumped, once on the other side, tell me this isn’t true.  Every time you face a challenge and jump, the less likely you’ll shrink from the next one that appears.  As with muscle memory, the more you do something, the stronger you become.

 

Take that risk!
Jump.
You may surprise yourself and find that you can indeed fly.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Snowball Effect and Law of Attraction

For those of you unaware I wear a myriad of hats:
Photographer

And:
Social Media Consultant.

I belong to the Madison Connecticut Chamber of Commerce on the back of my photography business:
CJP Photos.

However, I’ve found another venture I have re-imagined is getting me more attention now than my photography.  At one point in the late 1990s and very early 2000s I owned a computer consulting business.  I built several Windows based computers for a few clients.  I used my knowledge to troubleshoot both hardware and software.  My client base was huge, having over a hundred clients.

 

In 2001 after finishing my library science degree, I found a job at my local library where I still put my computer knowledge to work.  Once hired full time I dispersed my clients to several other people I knew and trusted.  I kept a handful for myself so I could keep my hands in the business.  That computer business has now been re-imagined and that is what is drawing clients now.  I help people maintain their websites as well as get people up to speed on the various Social Media platforms available.  I never want to get as busy as I did with my computer business.  I don’t have the time and it wouldn’t be fair to those “imagined clients” if I couldn’t help them.  At the moment I have about six clients and I can afford to acquire approximately four more.  I can maintain a base of ten, not much more than that however.

The Madison Chamber of Commerce has a monthly social gathering where local business owners come for food, beverage and connection.

 

Last month I attended the social with my friend, Cathy who owns an eco friendly cleaning business.  I maintain Cathy’s website:
Sea Green Natural and I promote her business online.

 

As a result of that, she does her best to help promote my Social business.  Last month, at the Chamber event, I picked up a new client and we met for the first time last Wednesday (November 12.)  When our meeting ended, Agnieshka Jadak from Jadak Hair Restoration couldn’t have been happier with how much I did for her in the two hours we were together.  We have another meeting scheduled for today.  A few hours later, my phone rang.  Another client, this one also a referral from Cathy, wants me to edit a manuscript and help him with Social Media.

 

And that’s not all:
The following morning I received a call from a friend of mine who wants me to help get him up to speed with Social.

 

This was a connection I made on my own.  I’m convinced however, that all of these clients are connected to Agnieshka starting the snowball rolling.  You know how strong a belief I have in Law of Attraction.  The fact that these other clients came immediately after that initial meeting leads me to believe it is surely Law of Attraction in action.  The more we do something, the more we are active with something that brings us joy, the more of that that will arrive in our world.

 

So I have Cathy and Agnieshka to thank for this snowball.  It’s rolling and picking up speed.  I know it will continue to accumulate more snow (more clients) as it builds momentum.  I have the ability to slow the momentum if I feel overwhelmed, which is also a good thing.  At the moment, however, I’m relishing the speed at which all this is happening.  I’m so excited.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!

Blessings to you.

You Get What You Think About

You get what you think about, whether you want it or not!  So be careful what you think about.

 

Your Ultimate Calling
Page 346
Wayne Dyer

 

Wayne Dyer wasn’t always a Law of Attraction guru.  He evolved into this paradigm much like many of us did.  He has always been on the positive path however.  Think about how many times you’ve wanted something (no pun intended. Just worked out that way.)

WayneDyer

How many times have you received what you thought about?
50%?
60%?

 

Was it higher than that?

 

I’m guessing it was.  Have you ever stopped to consider that our thoughts REALLY do create our reality?  Have you ever considered that something we all poo poohed as new age mumbo jumbo may REALLY hold some credence?  May REALLY hold some water?

Wikipedia

 

As I’ve said at Wisdom and Life countless times. Law of Attraction is merely another way of looking Faith and Spirituality.  It’s why the bulk of my writing here centers on these two topics.  In my opinion just as Science and Faith are two sides of the same coin, Law of Attraction is just another way of looking at Faith:
Ask and ye shall receive.

 

Hmmmm.  Why does that sound so familiar?  Mayne because it is Biblical in nature.  It is also one of the major covenants of Law of Attraction.  As is:
You get what you think about.

 

Heck even Be careful what you wish/think about is Biblical.  All of the Law of Attraction gurus are simply using their voices to make faith more palatable to the masses.  Some of them may not even realize what they are doing.

 

You get what you think about, whether you want it or not!  So be careful what you think about.

 

The Universe/God/Higher Power is only reacting to your thoughts, whether they be positive or negative.  It can only bring to you what your thoughts say you want.  So as I’ve said here before as well:
Be as specific as possible when thinking you want something.  You certainly don’t want something like The Monkey’s Paw to happen to you.

Wayne Dyer happens to be the first subject I discovered after watching Rhonda Byrne’s Secret on DVD.  I didn’t stagnate.  I realized there was so much more to Law of Attraction then what was brought out in The Secret.  I learned quickly to meld faith and Law of Attraction because I understood many of the the topics discussed in The Secret had Biblical origins and because I’ve always had a strong faith I dug deep into the parallels between the two.

 

It’s what I CHOOSE to see.  Anyone who has read Wisdom and Life for some time will realize that I believe everything comes down to choice.  We all choose what to believe.  And that choice manifests our reality.

 

What do you choose?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Stop Resisting

No one experiences freedom until they stop pushing against others. The only thing that binds you is the pushing against that which is unwanted. And so, if a religion could just be excited about what it is, or a person within a religion could just speak with appreciation about what it is, without justifying what it is by pushing against everything else, then each religion, in all of its difference, could be just exactly what you’re reaching for.

Abraham-Hicks

 

No one experiences freedom until they stop pushing PERIOD!  Pushing against others, pushing against a challenge, pushing against whatever, all takes resistance and force.  Letting go?  That can take effort if we’ve been programmed from day one that the only way to get what we want is by pushing for it.
Don'tPush

It becomes easy.
It becomes the way to do things.
It becomes second nature.

 

We have to learn a new way.  We have to learn to let go and let God.  Why push?  Why resist when whatever will happen, will happen  anyway?  Just let it happen.  I’m not suggesting to simply lie down and let others walk over us.  I’m not suggesting to let circumstances control our every move.  What I am saying is that when you reach a point where something isn’t going the way you planned it, relax, breath in and breath out and simply let life take its course, let go and let God take the wheel.

 

HE knows the course.
HE has the map.  You don’t.  Why struggle?  Why try to drive when you don’t know where you’re going?  When you can’t see the path?

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

Appreciate where you are.
Appreciate that you got this far.  But know you didn’t get here alone.  Know there’s always a Divine hand guiding you. And be grateful for that hand.

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

What happens when you hit a wall?
Do you simply sit down and give up?  No!  You find a way around the wall, correct?  So why should meeting resistance be any different?  You have to find a way around the resistance.  Sometimes the only thing you can do is let go.  Letting go is NOT giving up.  There is always someone who you can reach out to.
A friend?

Someone who is always there, in the dark of night.  Someone who will drop everything to be by your side in a heartbeat:
Family?

 

We should all be fortunate to have someone like that.  I’m fortunate to have both.  A BEST friend who would drop anything and race to my side if I needed it.  And family who would do the same.  It is so important to cultivate friends and family who would go through walls for you.  If you have no one in your life like that it would behoove you to find someone.

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

Let go and Let God.  That’s one of the slogans from every twelve step program.  Let God take control.  For HE is the ONLY one EVER truly in control.  The sooner you realize this, the easier your life will flow.  Remember that slogan I’m so fond of:
Row your boat gently DOWN the stream.

 

For it’s only when we resist, it’s only when we fight, it’s only when we struggle.  It’s only when we go against the current that we get in trouble.

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

Let the current, let the stream take us where we are meant to go.  Don’t resist.

 

Let go and Let God.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Education, Right Brainers and Discovering Our Gifts

You are really individual beings, with very special talents, and it would be nice if teachers had the time, or parents had the awareness or skill, to see the children as the very individual, very special beings that they are. So that rather than trying to drum them into one category, they are, instead, appreciating the special insight that each child brings to the sea of diversity and contrast which is the stuff that creation comes from.

 

Abraham-Hicks

 

 

We all have our God given gifts.  It’s up to us to discover them and use them to our advantage.
Parents?
Teachers?

KnowledgePower

They MAY mean well.  But too many times they guide their children in the same way they were guided.  By pigeonholing them into careers that will earn them the MOST money, disregarding the fact that many people who are financially secure are emotionally bereft.

 

 

 

 

 

Which would you honestly rather be?
Financially successful?
Or
Emotionally successful?

 

What if you could be both?  You can be!  You simply have to discover the gift or gifts that were given to you when you incarnated.  Discover a way to create a career around that gift.  Whether it be songwriting.

Whether it be an artist.
Whether an actor.

 

Whatever you feel impassioned about
Whatever brings you joy
However you get lost in the Flow

 

That’s your gift.

 

Abraham Hicks is correct:
We REALLY are individual beings, with very special talents.
and we can’t let anyone dissuade us.
We can’t let anyone tell us different.

 

Do you know why our parents and our educators do what they do?
Do you know why they steer us in the financially driven direction?
One reason is as I said above, because that is how they were taught.  But there is another implication here too.

Fear.  
That’s right the other reason is fear driven.  All of our teachers from our youth, our parents as well as our school administrators are fearful that we will learn that we ARE individuals, that we are not automatons, that we all don’t fit in a square box.

 

Some of us draw outside the lines and education today is all about conformity.  There is no room for the individual to shine.  Some people learn differently.  I should know, because I went through this myself.  I’m a visual learner. Always have been.  I’m a right brainer.  Always have been.  I don’t know where this fits on that spectrum but when I attended middle school and high school and was administered tests it became quite apparent that taking multiple choice exams was the wrong way to judge what I learned.  Give me an essay exam or an oral exam and I excelled.  This was proven several times when I failed miserably with the multiple choice tests.

 

It was finally discovered by a teacher who took an active interest in my growth.  In the sixth grade he pulled me aside and asked if I wanted to take the exam over, but this time he would give me an oral exam.  He realized that I actively participated in classroom discussion and understood that I had more to offer.  He was right.  After class that afternoon he and I sat in his classroom and he tested me orally.  He was shocked at how well I knew the material.  He said he knew I understood what he was teaching.  He just needed me to know he knew.  From that time, I was given essay exams and my grades shot up in that class.

 

So see?  We are ALL individuals and if it wasn’t for that one teacher in middle school who had taken an active interest in one of his students I very well may have floundered in his class as well.  I am grateful to him and told him so once the year was out.

 

Learning differently
Thinking differently has actually helped me later in life.  Being right brained is a benefit in the career I chose. Writing and being in the literary field.  Right Brainers learn visually which is what that sixth grade teacher realized immediately after seeing my results on that multiple choice exam.

 

It’s unfortunate that most educators today don’t take the time to understand the individual.  For if they did, I imagine we’d see more students succeed.  I’m blessed that one teacher saw that I learned differently, that I was truly right brained.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

The Miracle Behind The Curtain

Most parents, when they see children not terrorized by the things that terrorize them, they work very hard until they’ve finally got you terrorized. They teach you those irrational fears. Well-meaning, but they do just the same.

 

Abraham-Hicks

Traveler-curtain

I’m reminded of a quote coming from the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel:

Everything will be all right in the end. If it’s not all right, it is not yet the end.  

 

As children we understand this.  As MOST children become adults this and thoughts like this are beaten out of us by are well meaning parents and by society.  I don’t like the word terrorize as it signifies a conscious effort on the part of the one doing the terrorizing.  I don’t believe MOST parents CONSCIOUSLY terrorizes positive thoughts out of their children.  They are just doing what they were taught by their OWN parents. Simply  a vicious circle.

Someone has to stop the reverberation, the echo, the circle.

 

I choose to see the positive.
I choose to see that everything WILL be alright in the end.  That shouldn’t surprise anyone reading Wisdom and Life however.  My life wasn’t easy.

I could very well have gone down the pity path.
I could very well have become angry, depressed, and locked myself away.

I saw what that life could do and I was not going to follow that road.

I chose to see life as miraculous.
I chose to see life as a gift.

 

No one influenced me to see life as terrorizing.  Too much has happened in my life not to see the gift it has presented to me.  Sure!  I’ve experienced challenges.  Challenges I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to see.  But those challenges have made me the person I am today.

 

I’ve had experiences terrorize me.
I’ve had life do its best to terrorize me.
I’ve had people do their best to terrorize me.

 

Ya know what?
It hasn’t worked.  Experiences can undermine me.  Life can undermine me.  People can undermine me. I see all these things that have happened in my life and I see the gift in the experience.

 

Call me a fool.
Call me an optimist.
Call me too trusting.

But I see the miracle behind the curtain.
I see the positive in the negative.
I see the magic in the moonlight.

 

Life is full of miracles.  We only have part the invisible curtain to find it.  Do you know where that curtain is?  And if you found it would you be able to see the miracle yourself?  Or have you been so terrorized as you were growing up to NOT see life as the blessing that it is?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Stories of Negativity

Continuing to tell stories of shortage only continues to contradict your desire for abundance, and you cannot have it both ways: You cannot focus upon unwanted and receive wanted. You cannot focus upon stories about money that make you feel uncomfortable and allow into your experience what makes you feel comfortable. A different story will bring different results: My thoughts are the basis for the attraction of all things that I consider to be good, which includes enough money, and health, for my comfort and joy.

 

Abraham-Hicks

 

Taking this quote in a bit of a different direction,
You cannot continue to self talk negative thoughts.
You cannot continue to tell yourself that you’re a failure.
You cannot continue to tell yourself that you’re alone, that you’re unloved.

 

It will only create a self fulfilling prophecy.
You MAY have thought that at one time in your life. You know what?  It was NEVER true!

 

And you know how I feel about your thoughts
That they create our reality.  Hence the self fulfilling prophecy routine I spoke of earlier.   I dislike when I hear people talking down to themselves and about themselves. There is absolutely no reason for it.

 

My friend Gibson Goff is big on finding success. His blog:
A Daily Dose of Success is based entirely on the topic.  I’m sure he would agree that negative  self talk is a sure way of disembarking from the success train.

 

Just like telling stories of shortage will create a reality of shortage, replaying old tapes of failure, of being unloved will bring more of that reality into your life.

 

Is that the story you want to tell now?
Is that the life you want to lead now?

 

I’m betting it isn’t.

 

It is pretty easy to stop.  It’s is more challenging to continue NOT falling into that routine again.  Constant vigilance is what it takes. When you feel yourself falling down the rabbit hole, you MUST pull yourself up, shake yourself off and say:

RabbitHole

That was my old story.
That was what people used to say about me
I’m not that person anymore.

 

If you are feeling that way regularly, maybe you have to look at the people you are surrounding yourself with.  If the people you are surrounding yourself with are telling you this story, it is time to find people who will lift you up, not drag you down.  You don’t need negativity in your life if you are challenged by negative energy yourself.

 

You need people who will show you your light.
You need people who will show you love.

 

Can you find those people?
Can you stop telling yourself negative stories?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Finding Your Soul

As I sat in Starbucks last week, I ran into someone I haven’t seen in many years and after talking for awhile, he smiled and said:
You’re not the Chris I remember.  You seem lighter, happier, like you finally found your soul.

 

No kidding!  That’s what he said:
Like you finally found your soul.
Soul1
Was this my cue to discuss my metamorphosis?  I’ve been stung before when talking about my conversion to the person I’ve become; since discovering that Law of Attraction has deepened my Faith and Spirituality.  I decided to take a chance seeing as I don’t see coincidences anymore. Why did he use a word that I’m so familiar with with the word soul?

 

It’s funny I said.  You’re not the first person to say something like that.  A friend of mine said something very similar.  She has told me countless times that before becoming my friend she’d see me around town and I didn’t seem particularly happy, like I was just going through the motions of life, as if I had no purpose.

 

I never thought that about myself.  However, if others saw that in me I must have been projecting that attitude in some respect.

 

I took a breath and plunged forward; telling this person how I changed my worldview, how  discovering Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret created a monumental shift in my life.  I made sure to impress upon him that I took the best things from The Secret and found my way to other Law of Attraction sources such as Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Abraham Hicks.  I explained how I felt that Law of Attraction was just another way of looking at God.

 

I stopped there for a moment to gauge his reaction.  It would tell me if I crossed a line.  Using that little three letter word can make or break a relationship.  I have first hand knowledge of that experience, which is why I hesitated to even go down this path with this person.  I knew we would get to this place if I went forward because I couldn’t NOT get here.

 

He didn’t seem anxious.
He didn’t roll his eyes.

 

I moved on.  I explained how Law of Attraction improved my well being, that I sincerely believe that our thoughts create our reality, that IF I did at one point when he knew me project that I was not light, that I was not happy it must have been something I was unaware of.  I am NOW fully aware that I feel lighter, that I feel better, that I feel more joyful, so that MUST mean on some level I knew I experienced a time when I felt dark, heavy with life.  If others saw it in me I must have shown that persona to the world.

 

And here I thought I was so skillful at hiding my feelings.  Apparently I couldn’t have been more wrong.  All I know now is that my life has genuinely improved since discovering Law of Attraction and that my thoughts have shifted; therefore, my world has shifted.  It’s obvious to me now that others see the change in my personality as well.  Kinda funny that it took my old friend and the friend I have now that sees me more than anyone else to point this out to me.  However now that I’m aware of it, I clearly see the change in myself.

 

Have you ever changed so dramatically and not been aware of it?
Has someone had to point out the change in yourself?

 

Let me know in the comments below.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

All the Facts

If you are being swept into some current that is not comfortable, or not in harmony with your desire, you must remember that couldn’t happen if you weren’t offering a vibration that matched it in some way. If you’re vibrating differently from that, you’re not having that experience

Abraham-Hicks

–Has anyone ever attempted to convince you that you did something wrong, when you know deep in your soul that you did not?
–Have you ever taken what they said as fact?

 

Well I’m here to tell you that until you know ALL the facts don’t take one person’s comments to heart.  As Abraham Hicks says above however, we also have to look within ourselves:
If you weren’t offering a vibration similar to the outcome of your event then you wouldn’t be in the storm in the first place.

 

I THINK what Abraham is saying is that we are all complicit in some way in anything that happens in our circle of influence, be it positive or negative.  If you believe you have done something that you feel badly about, then own up to it.  The MOST important thing to know here is though that if you are involved in a negative dynamic, you must be offering something to the same degree.

LoA

But the last thing you want is to continue that vibration so what you need to do is release it as quickly as possible.  How to do that?

It’s just as I said above.  If you EVEN think you are somewhat complicit, you MUST reach out and apologize.  Release the negative from around you.  What the other person does after that is their issue.  

 

You just don’t want to carry that negativity around with you.  And don’t let anyone convince you that you’ve done something wrong without having all the facts.  I’ve seen it happen many times that someone is convinced that another is guilty when it was all in the original person’s head.

 

Remember in previous columns I’ve written about Transference?  Sometimes I have to wonder if there is some kind of backward transference happening when this kind of thing goes on.  All I can say is:
Don’t play the game!

 

I will say a final time however that if you EVEN consider yourself complicit in ANY way be sure to take accountability and move on.  Remember we are all complicit in some way.  If we weren’t vibrating at that frequency then we wouldn’t be vibrating at that frequency.  What you must decide is:
Is it because you are around a particular event or people and those people or that event is vibrating at a lower frequency than you are?

 

If that’s the case you have to decide if they are important to you.  If so, then you need to surround yourself can act as buffer; people who you can turn to when the lower frequency starts affecting your well being.  If your buffers can’t join you then call on them after your event.  If they are truly your friends they will let you vent to them.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!

Blessings to you.

Love Everyone

Just love everybody that interacts with you no matter how personally, or how peripherally, involved with you they are. The efficiency of the people who deal with you… everything is orchestrated by the manager called Law of Attraction. And your vibration is setting all of it into motion. Everything affecting you is a reflection of the vibration that you are emitting. Spend more time focused upon your dream than upon the reality. The reality gives birth to the dream—but the dream is where you are wanting to put your attention.

 

Abraham-Hicks

Love is what we all need.

hearts

The more we give, the more we will receive.  It’s as Law of Attraction say:
What we send out we get back.

 

That’s the entire premise of Law of Attraction.  All you have to is look at the last word in the phrase:
Attraction

 

Merriam Websters Dictionary  defines attraction as:
The act process or power of attracting

 

Love is positive energy.  To take this a step further, one of the opposites of love is judgement.  Love and Judgement cannot coexist just as light and darkness cannot coexisit.  One power is always stronger than the other.

 

I understand I’ve discussed this concept previously but it’s only because the subject is so dear to me.  I’m sure you’ve heard it said many times over that a single candle can penetrate the darkest night.  That’s true:
Just as a single hug can wipe away all fear, all anxiety, all sadness.  Just as three little words:
I love you can do the same.  There are so many varieties of love and I think the sad thing about that little word is that it takes a negative rap all too often.

When MOST people use the word or think of using it they refer to romantic love.  And because this is the way people tend to use the word, it gets a bum rap.  People are afraid to say the word if it is between friends of the opposite sex.  Just as hugging can take a negative rap.

 

I realize it is cliche, but love REALLY does make the world go round.
We have to stop being afraid to use those words.
We have to stop being afraid to show those close to us that we love them.

 

Romantic love is simply one aspect of the word.
When we can let go of that and understand that love is more than romance,
When we understand that TRUE love is giving it freely and expecting nothing in return,
When we lose our anxiety, when lose our fear of the word and use it often you will see how much love has always been in our lives, how much love has been just out of reach.

 

Embrace the love that is all around you and share it freely and you will see it echoing back.  There will be more love than you ever you knew you have.  Just as I have an overflowing faith, you will see that you have so much love in your life that you MUST share it.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
