Say Thank You to the Cow for the Steak on Your Plate
Have you ever said thank-you to the cow that provided you with the steak for your dinner!
I expect you think the idea preposterous. If you were to say thank-you: to the cow for its meat, milk, butter and cheese, to the vegetables for their sacrifice of life so that you can live, to the air, water and fire and earth for their contributions to your life ? then you may have to start thinking a bit harder about yourself and your connection to earth.
Saying 'Thank-you'. We are all taught this as children - Why? Just think how it feels when someone does say 'thank-you' for something you have done. It makes you feel good and then you are open to doing something else for that person. That person, by saying 'thank-you', is honouring you and what you have done, thus paving the way for more abundance.
Once you actually live the attitude of gratitude, its amazing what comes your way. So what have you done by saying 'thank-you' You have raised the vibrational frequency of the deed you did; the steak and vegetables or fruit you have eaten or the glass of water you drank, to a spiritual one. You are working on a higher level of connection to all that is.
Further, by saying 'thank-you' to the cow for the steak we can connect with its energy-that's a scary thought who wants to connect with a cow? Well, my friends, it is a fact that we are connected to everything. We are not separate from other consciousnesses on the planet or from the consciousness of the planet herself.
We in the West, technological, greedy, corrupt, consumed with self, have lost our way.
The Aborigines and the Native American Indians [before the white man destroyed their cultures ] as well as other indigenous tribes, all have this close connection to earth. They have not raped and pillaged the earth, they have nurtured and cared for it as much as they can. They say thank-you to the animal they have killed, thereby honouring it, also they do not take more than they need. They know that, in their gratitude they create further abundance.
Take a look at the vegetables in the supermarket. Don't they look wonderful? Have you ever wondered why it is that the World Health Organisation keeps increasing our daily recommended input of fruit and vegetables? Well, it is because those beautiful vegetables have hardly any vitamins, minerals or life force energy. This means we have to eat more to get what we require in order to survive.
We have lost our connection to and understanding of the earth so much so that our farming methods just plunder the soil. Feed the soil, nurture it and rest it and you will get good crops with high vitamin and mineral content as well as life force energy. Say Thank-you!
Even better, connect with the earth yourself, grow some of your own vegetables [try containers if space is limited]. Come back to the being who is part of planet earth; part of the tapestry of life integral to the planet instead of trying to be separated.
There is actually nothing lacking on this planet, it is the management and distribution systems that have gone awry, together with our own lack of connection.
There is abundance for all! We can create it in our lives by living an attitude of gratitude and beginning the realisation that we are not separate from anyone or anything.

The Power of A.S.K.ing
Have you ever had the opportunity to follow-up on a sales lead? Recently, I had such an opportunity to reconnect with an organization that I had been trying to secure as a client. Due to some new events and after multiple unreturned phone calls, I decided to ask for the decision maker within the department. After receiving the executive's name and finally making contact, I explained who I was, where I was from and how I could add value to their training request. A planned 5 minute telephone call turned into a 30 minute engaging dialogue where I learned even more about their needs and was asked in return if I had the experience to facilitate a second, separate engagement.
Change Your Landscape by Seeing with New Eyes
A Story (Source Unknown) ? One day a very wealthy father took his son on a trip to the country for the sole purpose of showing his son how it was to be poor. They spent a few days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. Upon return from their trip, the father asked his son how he liked the trip. "It was great, Dad," the son replied. "Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked. "Oh, yeah," said the son. "So what did you learn from the trip?" continued the father. The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to leave on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them." The boy's father was speechless. Then the son added this last remark: "It showed me how poor we truly are."
