Energy Work Basics Part 2: What Lifts Your Spirit?
Remember, everything is made of energy. Each of us has an energy field. Our thoughts and emotions extend beyond our physical bodies and influence the people and spaces around us. The energy of thoughts and emotions hangs around in spaces after the people have left.
Get a pen and paper. Quickly write down as many things as possible that lift your spirit. A tip to make sure you get down all the important ways to lift your spirit: Think physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Now write!
Look over your list.
What "physical" ways to lift your spirit did you record?
Physical activities: dancing, exercise, playing sports, hiking, playing a musical instrument, and gardening.
Sights: beautiful objects, nature, a good-looking guy or gal, flowers, pets, rainbows.
Sounds: children's laughter, your favourite music, waves crashing on the shore, rain on the roof.
Smells: baking bread, a whiff of perfume, the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee, the air after a spring rain.
Tastes: biting into an orange, chocolate, eating.
Touch: the feel of silk on your skin, a romantic interlude, a luxurious soak in a tub, a massage, the earth between your fingers or toes, the wind in your face as you sail.
What mental ways did you write down?
Crossword puzzles; reading books: fiction: mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, historical, thrillers, epics and plays, and non-fiction: biographies, science, travel, self-improvement, and inspirational; playing cards and board games; learning something new; planning a trip; figuring something out.
What emotional ways did you identify?
Spending time with friends and family, vacations, laughter, joyful activities.
What spiritual things did you list?
Meditation, worship, volunteering, listening to beautiful music, being in the moment, gratitude, being in nature.
Did you find it was difficult to separate the ways that uplift your spirit into the different categories? That's okay. It helped to make sure you remembered the important ways.
Next, are the ways you recorded regular parts of your life? Which ones are? Which ones are not? What would it take to make the underused ways regular parts of your life?
Now, take a few minutes and plan how to make the 3 ways you miss the most a regular part of your life. Put your plan into action. You'll be glad you did!
When you lift your spirit, you raise your vibration. And as you learned in Energy Work Basics Part 1, you feel "better" and "lighter" when your spirits are high. And so do the people around you!

The Memorable First Days!
The first few hours in this world, when we as babies drop out to mingle with the natural beauty and wonders, the first day in our life is the most important day of our life.
The Great Challenge of Life
Here's the great challenge of life - You can have more than you've got because you can become more than you are.
Wreaths are like rings. They represent the Universal Circle ("Let the circle be unbroken ?" as the song lyric goes) and also the idea of circulating love, wealth and prosperity for yourself and neighbours. Usually they are hung on the front door, over the fire place or over the dining room table to commemorate special occasions or the changing of the seasons.
Recognize the Perfect Realtor
As soon as you have launched a strong desire, the answer is on its way. In that moment the Universe/God begins to orchestrate every person, event, and resource necessary to fulfill your desire.
It Wont Happen Again
Have you or do you know someone who has been abused or been involved in an abusive relationship? What is your definition of abuse? All of us know that physical violence is abuse. We also know there is emotional and mental abuse too, but do we know what it really is?
Life is a Mystery...or is it?
Being the last of three daughters, I was a suprise to my parents who were being very cautious about not having any more children. At the age of 30 my mother found out she was expecting her third child, and not very happy about it at that. All my life growing up I was constantly reminded how I was not planned for and consequently not really wanted. But thank goodness I was a good baby and actually turned out to be the best thing that ever came along. But, having this thought in the back of my head, it kind of formed the way I grew up. I actually believed that I was a "mistake" and therefore should not have been born in the first place. Where do misfits fit in? I know that my mother did not mean to instill these thoughts in me but they did have a major role in my self confidence.
Quitting Before It Even Starts
Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touch down. --Ross Perot
Life lessons - An Inpirational Story

Good-Bye Yesterday, Hello Today
Many of us are unable to move forward with our lives because we refuse to let go of what no longer exist: YESTERDAY. The portal to yesterday is permanently closed; gone out of business. It is non-existent; a mere idea of what once was.
Commitment To The Journey
I have been a business owner for about a minute. In fact, that would probably be quite generous if you compared me to the business moguls out here or anywhere for that matter. But in spite of that fact, I probably know a lot about business, more than I realize and much more than you would expect, if you knew my background. It is my life as a business owner that has finally made sense of all the data and observations that I have gathered over the years. I spent 20 years of my life working for others, most unknown, some infamous.

The Two Choices We Face
Each of us has two distinct choices to make about what we will do with our lives. The first choice we can make is to be less than we have the capacity to be. To earn less. To have less. To read less and think less. To try less and discipline ourselves less. These are the choices that lead to an empty life. These are the choices that, once made, lead to a life of constant apprehension instead of a life of wondrous anticipation.
Shaping the Future with Positive People Power
We must shape the future and control our destiny.
Faith Like a Child
Thanks to Walt Disney's "The Lion King", children the world over know the Swahili expression "Hakuna Matata". It means "No Problem" and we grown-ups should use it more often.

Inspired For Women
One man can make a difference. I've been saying this and writing around this subject matter for over a decade now. It is not to the exclusion of women as I originally used the phrase in reference to mankind or society if you prefer. A decade ago, my pursuit of the quest to make a difference, to be involved, to inspire ended up taking a back seat. Survival in the moment and dealing with family and health issues took the front seat. Now, most of that is behind me and to a large degree it has been women who have made the difference in my growth and healing; unique powerful, loving, nurturing women.
Inspiring Values of Unforgettable Teachers
All of us recall special teachers - people who not only taught us but inspired us in ways that changed our lives. William Arthur Ward once said, "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." Here are five life-changing values inspired by unforgettable teachers.
