The ‘Ah!’ and the ‘Ohm!’

The ‘Ah!’ and the ‘Ohm!’

When we practice gratitude, we’re telling God, ‘Yes!’, more please.. When we’re excited for the people, places and things filling and fulfilling our daily journeys, have you noticed how many more rush in? Our good comes by the measure of our gratitude and enthusiasm in receiving it.

I know this is true as I experience it more each day.  How excited I am about my life is directly reflected in the level of excitement Life responds to me.

I recently had the honor of receiving a new tool from an incredible teacher and healer to start and end the day with this excitement and gratitude. It’s simple, yet profoundly sets the tone every morning and ties a nice bow of thanks to the wonder of life every evening.  I want to share it with you.

As we wake every morning, we focus our first thoughts on receiving good, allowing the magnificence and joy which is ours to receive to come.  We can do this with a single word, a physical expression of openness.  By opening our mouths wide and saying “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!” several times, we tune our prosperity consciousness, much like a tuning fork helps tune a fine instrument. In the evening, while reviewing the good we did receive (whether big or small), we open our hearts and with thanks say “Ohmmmmmm.”  These two words are guides to receiving and recognizing Good. Try it for one week, and watch the adjustment your soul makes!

Beings of Light

Beings of Light

We are not designed to grow old; we are created to grow up and out as beings of light. Some would call this the lightness of being or taking yourself lightly. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, when the Creator said, “Let there be light,” the Creator was talking about you. Even Jesus…

Are You Awake?

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds. Their bark on the average is 31 inches thick. Their…
