Call me to you

Today, I would like you to make a personal connection with me. I would like you to sit quietly and calmly, breathe in deeply and call me to you.

Feel me like a warm loving presence, wrapping around you. Feel my warmth. Feel my love and deep caring. Know that this love is there for you, ever and always. It is deep and it is very personal.

I know you. I feel you. The reason that you connect deeply with these messages is that I know your heart and mind and answer its calling.

Allow me to also give you the warmth and love you are longing for. You do not need to seek it elsewhere. All of the comfort you need is there for you. All of the protection and safety you need can be found within the warm circle of my presence. Call me to you and allow it to be.

And know this. You are deeply worthy of my caring attention. You are deeply worthy of the great flow of love which comes to you in an unending stream. You are surrounded by love and you deserve every bit of it, every drop.

You are everything. You are an expression of all that is, one part of the whole, an important part. And all of the love and caring in the universe is there for you, for you are that important, that vital, that much a part of the whole.

What you feel matters. What you think matters. Who you are and how you evolve matters.

So be patient with yourself. Be deeply loving. Give yourself all of this warmth and love and allow me to lavish it upon you as well. You deserve it.

Here is a little prayer for today

I know myself as deeply deserving of love. I call to me all of the love of the universe and allow it to wrap itself around me like a warm blanket of love. I reside within this embrace of caring. And I know I am deeply deserving of it.

I love and respect myself completely. I know that I have within me the spark of purity and wonder, the light which shines without end. It is all within me.

I am power. I am light. I am love. I am.

A Deep Meditation into Now

Today, right now, let us take a journey into this moment, deeply into
now, deeply into this well of peace and joy which is this moment and
this moment only.

Let yourself drift down and down, deeply into this moment. Feel the
past releasing. Feel your mind quieting as you cease all thought about
tomorrow. Feel your tensions disappearing as you cease all worries.
Feel the regret lifting from you as you abandon yesterday, letting it be
as it was, letting go of hurts and disappointments, expectations
unfulfilled, fears and doubts which kept you from doing what you had desired.
Feel all of this lifting from you as you go deeper and deeper into this

Breathe deeply as you immerse yourself into this place of now, this
moment and this moment only. Come deeper and deeper, enveloped in the
velvety presence, the soft enfolding oneness of being.

Hear the silence as it comes, broken only by the occasional song of an
angel as you dip down into the well of peace which is your center.

And in this well of peace, you find love, love and more love. All
love, only love. As you drift down and your peace becomes deeper, you can
feel it, you can feel the change as fear is replaced by love and doubt
is replaced by belief. As you drift down into the moment, you begin to
feel your connection and oneness to all that is, all that is right now,
enveloping you, surrounding you, being you.

And within this moment there is both light and darkness. The darkness
is the quiet, the lack of distraction. But within that quietness that
at first appears to be darkness, you begin to see that it is truly
light, that there is a shine to everything, for it is all light and nothing
but light.

For here in the center of the world, here you are reaching your true
self as you exist in this moment, and then deeper and deeper until you
are timeless and enter now, which opens up on the other side to a place
where there is no now, no past, no future, only beingness and presence,
only this and you and all and one and the vast stillness of the shining

And here in this state of timeless awareness and beingness, even joy
and love become quiet as you simply are, as you are within the vast
presence of this moment, only you in the great knowingness of oneness with
all that is.

And in this place of oneness where the light and dark are the same,
where the past and future are the same, where what you are has always been
and always will be, there is only peace as the elements you had thought
were separate are now seen as the same, as all things coexist in the
embrace of this moment.

And you can feel your mind quiet and wide, reaching out into the mind
of all, all calm awareness. And this connection is vast, this deep
connection as you open your mind to gather in all of the knowledge which
is, was and will be. No thought, but instead an opening awareness which
will form a foundation for thought, but now, no, no thought. Just
wider and wider, your mind opens, so that it is becoming a great receptacle
for learning and knowledge, a gathering place.

Deep, deep, open and flowing, the knowledge flows to you and enters
you, filling you. It is a wisdom which runs deeply through all endeavors.
And it is yours, flowing to you now, as you go deeper and deeper into
what is.

And now your heart opens wide and fills with endless love, a great
stream of love flowing into you, through you, you can feel it swirling and
moving, the endless and stream of love. And you are this love and it
is you. All here, all deep within the embrace of all that is.

Be quiet here in oneness, the flow of wisdom moving easily through your
mind, the flow of love moving easily through your heart. Feel the
motion of life at its depth. This is what is. You are all. You are one.
You are joining and melding and blending and being.

And now, deeper still, into the well of power, into the force, the
wellspring the source, all here, the glowing light which was the beginning
of light, the spark of creation, the all-embracing power which gives
form to the light. Come deep into this burning light of beingness and be
subsumed within it.

Melt into the burning flame of light. Be purified by the white-hot
glow of being. Only light can exist here. Only pure light can be within
this power. This power that is deeper than knowledge, deeper than any
emotion, wider than any beingness but the one which is this being, this

You are this power. You are pure wonder and beingness. You are this,
this glory of being pure and bright, golden and glowing, purged clean
and clear.

And now, begin slowly to lift out of it all, slowly, slowly, lifting
out of the white light and up into the golden glow. Allow your center to
retain the deep peace which you have felt. Allow your heart to contain
all of the love which has flowed through it in an endless stream.
Allow your mind to retain the wisdom which filled it.

And most of all, retain the power, the glow. See yourself as a bright
glow, a layer of light covering your body, an additional power that you
have experienced and that is now a part of you, energizing you in new

For this is the light. This is the oneness. This is the shining glory
which is you, now and always. And this life, with all its perceived
cares and burden is but the blink of an eye for your eternal being. But
this one little blink of an eye is made glorious through the presence
of your oneness, that light being that you are, that shining self that
is you.

Allow it to be present. Allow it to shine out as you walk through this
life. Feel and know your essential being of light, glowing through
your days.

Here is a little prayer for today

I am light. I am knowledge. I am love. I am peace.

I am the deepest and widest. I am the source and the beginning. I am
creation itself, one with all that is and ever was.

I shine in beauty. I shine in power. I am power. I am.

Tenho andado cheia de stress no trabalho por excesso de trabalho, pressão e mudanças muito breves e sem grandes explicações. Tudo é feito pela calada, sem respeito por ninguem e mais nada. Será que vale a pena sacrificar a sua vida para satisfazer as ambições de terceiros, que na realidade não nos são nada, simplesmente por nos manter no activo? Até quando e até aonde irei neste comboio negro e sem destino marcado?

Confronting Fibromyalgia

By Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa

What does it feel like to live with fibromyalgia? "Imagine last night
you drank more wine than you should have but had no water or food.
You went to bed late and got up early, feeling stiff, achy, and
tired," says Chanchal Cabrera, a British herbalist, fibromyalgia
patient, and author of Fibromyalgia: A Journey Toward Healing (McGraw-
Hill, 2002). People with fibromyalgia feel that way all the time, she

A truly mysterious ailment, fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) involves
chronic widespread muscle pain and fatigue. It affects about 2
percent of all Americans and accounts for 10 to 30 percent of all
rheumatology consultations. FMS mainly afflicts people between the
ages of 35 and 55 and occurs seven to 10 times more frequently in

And as if the pain and fatigue weren't enough, a constellation of
other symptoms often accompanies the disorder-foggy thinking, sleep
disturbances, painful menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea), and irritable
bowel symptoms-making a clear diagnosis difficult. Although the cause
of FMS continues to elude researchers, certain stresses on the body,
such as intense exercise, illness, or a traumatic event, appear to
intensify symptoms or even bring on the condition itself.

"My fibromyalgia was triggered by a car accident in 1991, when I was
a healthy and fit 28-year-old," says Cabrera, now 43 and living in
Vancouver, British Columbia. "Within minutes of the impact, my neck
and shoulders were in pain, and I had a dull headache. My slow
descent into fibromyalgia had begun."

The body blows a fuse
Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, medical director of Maryland's Annapolis Center
for Effective Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia Therapies, likens
FMS to the body's "blowing a fuse" when its energy account becomes
overdrawn. This short circuit results in hypothalamus suppression,
Teitelbaum maintains. "The hypothalamus controls sleep, hormonal
function, temperature, and autonomic functions such as blood pressure
and blood flow," he says. "The hypothalamus uses more energy for its
size than any other organ, so when there is an energy shortfall, it
goes offline first."

"FMS has no single cause," Teitelbaum says. He surmises that the
hypothalamus decreases its protective function in the face of what it
perceives as overwhelming stress, which can stem from infection,
injury, or a stressful, emotional incident. "FMS patients seem to
have genetic differences in the way their hypothalamus, pituitary,
and adrenal regulation handle stress," he says. "As a result, the
muscles end up short of energy and in pain."

Is there hope?
Mary Shomon, now an author and patient advocate in Washington, DC,
began to have symptoms of FMS at age 34, after two car accidents and
numerous other health challenges. Through a holistic approach and
alternative therapies, she finally found relief from her symptoms.
However, 11 years later she still expresses dismay about the stigma
and disbelief she encounters about fibromyalgia-particularly from the
conventional medical community.

"Those of us who have suffered through it know firsthand that it is a
very real condition," Shomon says. "We didn't dream it up or develop
some psychosomatic syndrome, and we can't just think it away, buck
up, and feel better, or just `get over it' by sheer determination.
Some doctors-and even some of our families and friends-think that
fibromyalgia is psychosomatic, evidence of laziness, or is due to
some inherent emotional or character weakness."

Conventional medicine has little to offer in the way of treatment,
which frustrates patients and doctors alike. Mainstream physicians
see FMS largely as an incurable condition (if they see it as a
condition at all), so they focus on relieving pain and improving
sleep-primarily with pharmaceuticals. Although both conventional and
alternative healthcare providers may suggest exercise programs to
improve muscle and cardiovascular fitness, along with relaxation
techniques to ease muscle tension and anxiety, drugs remain at the
forefront of conventional medicine's arsenal.

Conventional practitioners often recommend nonsteroidal anti-
inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin or ibuprofen for pain, and
tricyclic antidepressants to improve sleep and mood. These drugs
improve the symptoms to a certain extent but do not halt the disease.
And they come with a hefty price: NSAIDs cause bleeding in the
stomach lining and may affect kidney and liver function, particularly
when taken long-term. Antidepressants carry a host of potential side
effects, including anxiety, nausea, weight gain, and constipation.
And, at the end of the day, they don't alleviate the disease or
provide any hope for long-term relief. In contrast, a new breed of
alternative practitioners, including Teitelbaum, thinks that FMS can
be cured. They aim to get at the core issues and turn the disease
around with alternative therapies.

The search for sleep
Sleep is a primary concern for anyone with FMS. Ninety percent of
patients awaken multiple times a night, and even if they make it
through the night, they rarely sleep deeply enough to feel
rejuvenated. Other symptoms may disrupt sleep as well, such as
restless legs syndrome (twitchy, cramping legs that cause pain and
sleeplessness), irritable bladder, and nocturnal myoclonus (jerky

Scientists have long known that fibromyalgia involves "disregulated
sleep physiology," or alpha rhythm disturbances occurring during the
night and resulting in light, unrefreshing sleep. "If you don't get
eight to nine hours sleep at night, your pain will simply not go
away," says Teitelbaum. "Deep sleep is when you make growth hormones,
recharge your batteries, and get rid of pain," he explains.
Teitelbaum's first line of defense against disturbed sleep is L-
theanine (it must be the "L" form). He advises 200 mg at bedtime.

"L-theanine is fantastic," Shomon says. "With L-theanine, I can sleep
without waking up groggy." Teitelbaum also recommends low-dose
melatonin-a maximum of 0.5 mg per night-to encourage a normal sleep
cycle. Because sleep is so critical to healing, Teitelbaum may
occasionally prescribe sleeping pills, but only as a last resort.

For Cabrera, sleeping and healing went hand-in-hand: "Melatonin
really helped give me a deep, long sleep." After her diagnosis,
Cabrera had to quit work and pretty much rested and slept for a
year. "I slept 12 to 14 hours per night, plus naps," she says. "I
still use melatonin every night, but now I take a small dose of 0.3
mg." Cabrera has to watch herself closely, however. "With less than
ideal sleep even for one night, some FMS symptoms will return, but I
now can reverse them right away," she says.

A new sugar for energy
But no matter how much they rest, people with FMS never seem to have
enough energy. That's not surprising, since research shows FMS
sufferers have lower levels of ATP (the body's cellular energy
molecule) along with a lowered ability to make it. But exciting new
research with FMS patients shows that supplementing with D-ribose
(often just called ribose), the body's cellular fuel, can help the
body replenish ATP.

A natural sugar, ribose occurs in all living cells. "Ribose is the
key building block for making energy," says Teitelbaum. "In fact, the
main energy molecules in your body are made of ribose, plus B
vitamins and phosphate." Our bodies acquire ribose through diet-
brewer's yeast has a rich supply-and the body also makes it from
glucose in food. This is a slow process, however, that cannot always
keep up with the energy lost in daily activities, so it may take
several days to restore the lost ATP-and possibly much longer for
those who suffer with FMS.

Scientists know that supplemental ribose can reduce muscle pain,
stiffness, and exercise fatigue; that people tolerate it well; and
that it has no side effects. Armed with this knowledge, Teitelbaum
conducted a recent and very promising ribose study in FMS patients.
They took 5 grams of ribose three times a day, for an average of 28
days. In just 12 days, 66 percent of those taking ribose had
significant improvement in energy, sleep, mental clarity, and pain
intensity, with a 44 percent average increase in energy and an
overall 30 percent increase in well-being. Although the study is
preliminary, with results this positive, look for additional research
on ribose soon.

A different kind of cocktail
Could a simple injection cure FMS? As it turns out, one nutrient
concoction just might. The Myers Cocktail (named for John Myers, the
physician who invented it), an intravenous micronutrient treatment
containing magnesium, calcium, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C, has
been used to treat fibromyalgia for 20 years. Like ribose, these safe
nutrients promote cellular energy production and pump up ATP
production, according to a study published in Alternative Medicine
Review. "We have good clinical success with this treatment to reduce
pain and promote detoxification," says Virginia Hadley, RN,
nutritionist at the Tahoma Clinic in Kent, Washington.

Yale researchers recently tested the Myers Cocktail on a group of 40
patients ages 18 to 75 in a double-blind, placebo-controlled,
randomized trial. They gave one injection a week for eight weeks
through a large syringe containing 37 ml (about 7 teaspoons) of
nutrient solution. The mixture was injected slowly over about 20
minutes. The yet-to-be-published study measured tender points,
depression levels, and quality of life. "This three-month pilot study
showed significant improvements in all pertinent outcome measures
with the Myers Cocktail and none with the placebo solution," reports
David L. Katz, MD, associate clinical professor of epidemiology and
public health at Yale University. The study participants still had
less pain a month after the last injection. "Our results strongly
suggest that Myers Cocktail may well offer therapeutic benefit in
fibromyalgia. In the interim, we will continue to offer it to our
patients," says Katz.

Take a little needling
Many people with FMS get hooked on acupuncture, and for good reason.
Numerous studies show the positive benefits of acupuncture for pain
relief. One landmark study appeared in the June 2006 Mayo Clinic
Proceedings. This randomized, controlled trial, led by David P.
Martin, MD, an anesthesiologist from the Mayo Clinic College of
Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota, reports on 50 FMS patients, half of
whom received acupuncture; the remaining 25 received sham
acupuncture, which involved needles inserted at non-therapeutic
points. After just six treatments spread over three weeks, the
acupuncture patients reported significant improvement in symptoms,
particularly fatigue and anxiety, lasting up to seven months. One
month after treatment, those treated with "true" acupuncture had less
fatigue and fewer anxiety symptoms than the sham acupuncture group.

Exercise more, stress less
A regular, gentle, exercise routine stands out as indispensable for
FMS-to increase flexibility and reduce pain and stress. The severe
pain that usually accompanies FMS makes it difficult for many
sufferers to begin and maintain an exercise program. That's why
programs with gentle stretches and movements, such as therapeutic
yoga, Pilates, and t'ai chi, are often a good fit for FMS patients.

Shomon finds tremendous relief with Pilates. "My body was often a
knot of aches and pains-especially in my neck, shoulders, and lower
back," she says. "But I started Pilates for two one-hour sessions a
week. It was life-changing. Gradually, I gained strength, my constant
body pain faded, and I was able stop my daily doses of ibuprofen."
Shomon has been doing Pilates for about four years and says she
rarely has body pain.

Yoga also eases muscle pain and stiffness. In a six-week randomized
pilot study, researchers looked at a yoga program modified for FMS
chronic back pain. The program improved balance and flexibility and
diminished disability and depression.

Electrical help
Then there's some shocking news. According to Carolyn McMakin, a
chiropractor in Portland, Oregon, and an active proponent of
microcurrent therapy, electricity can help zap FMS. Microcurrent
therapy increases the rate of healing for injuries and fractures and
controls muscle pain. According to McMakin, delivering microamperage
(50 to 100 microA) electrical current to a patient increases ATP
concentrations up to fivefold in the body.

Electricity can relieve pain in other ways, too. Transcutaneous
electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which first appeared in
scientific literature around 1975, relieves pain by sending low-
voltage electrical signals to nerves with a battery-powered device.
TENS, used mainly by physical therapists but also by some MD pain
specialists, is thought to work because the electricity stimulates
the nerves in an affected area and scrambles normal pain signals. It
also may help the body produce natural endorphins. One 2005 study
looked at 218 chronic pain patients. After receiving TENS twice a
week for six weeks, the patients had substantial improvement in
disability and pain, which they maintained at a six-month follow-up

While everyone hopes for a cure for FMS, that magic bullet that puts
an end to the disease, all these different therapies and a number of
lifestyle adjustments make the disease manageable. "People must
change their lifestyles to make any progress," Cabrera
says. "Fibromyalgia involves a host of factors and an internal
complex of concerns. Even though I am an herbalist, and I know herbs
help, the entire answer doesn't lie in substances."

And Shomon adds, "There's clearly no conventional medical cure or
just one surefire treatment. What seems to work the best is a
combination of customized tactics that focuses on ensuring quality
sleep, reducing pain, increasing flexibility, improving metabolism,
and reducing stress."

Do You Have It?

pain and tender-point sites (see illustrations on pages 68 and 69),
below are the most common symptoms associated with this disorder.

Signs and Symptoms ....................................Percentage of
* Widespread pain............................................90 to 100

* Irritable bowel symptoms............................... 50 to 70

O defeito da Ira

O objetivo desta lição é colocar ênfase em um tipo de defeito psicológico muito comum, que é fácil de ser percebido atuando nos centros da máquina humana e que, no entanto, é um dos maiores causadores de sofrimentos e problemas psicológicos, físicos e sociais.
Vejamos o seguinte trecho retirado do livro “A Revolução da Dialética”, de Samael Aun Weor:

“A ira aniquila a capacidade de pensar e de resolver os problemas que a originam.
Obviamente, a ira é uma emoção negativa.
O enfrentamento de duas emoções negativas de ira não consegue paz nem compreensão criadora.

Inquestionavelmente, sempre que projetamos a ira a outro ser humano, produz-se a derrubada de nossa própria imagem e isto nunca é conveniente no mundo das inter-relações.
Os diversos processos da ira conduzem o ser humano para horríveis fracassos sociais, econômicos e psicológicos.
É claro que a saúde também é afetada pela ira.
Existem certos néscios que se aproveitam da ira, já que esta lhes dá um certo ar de superioridade. Nestes casos a ira combina-se com o orgulho.
A ira também costuma se combinar com a presunção e até com a auto-suficiência. A bondade é uma força muito mais esmagadora que a ira.

Uma discussão colérica é tão somente uma excitação carente de convicção.
Ao enfrentarmos a ira, devemos resolver-nos, devemos decidir-nos, pelo tipo de emoção que mais nos convém.
A bondade e a compreensão resultam melhores que a ira. Bondade e compreensão são emoções permanentes, posto que podem vencer a ira.
Quem se deixa controlar pela ira destrói sua própria imagem. O homem que tem um completo autocontrole, sempre estará no cimo.

A frustração, o medo, a dúvida e a culpa originam os processos da ira.
Frustração, medo, duvida e culpabilidade produz a ira. Quem se libertar destas quatro emoções negativas dominará o mundo.
Aceitar paixões negativas é algo que vai contra o auto-respeito.
A ira pertence aos loucos. Não serve porque leva à violência. O fim da ira é levar-nos à violência e esta produz mais violência.”

Esteja especialmente atento a este defeito, pois ele se manifesta muitas vezes e de várias formas, e seus efeitos são extremamente negativos.
O meio para eliminá-lo é o mesmo que para qualquer defeito psicológico: a morte psicológica.
Nada justifica ficarmos nervosos, bravos, com ódio, etc., seja por qual motivo for.
O ideal seria encarar com serenidade qualquer fato ou evento, seja este desagradável ou mesmo desastroso.
Conforme vamos eliminando o defeito da ira vai surgindo em nós, na mesma proporção, a virtude da serenidade. Conforme vamos eliminado o defeito do ódio, irá surgindo em nós a virtude do amor.

O defeito da ira alimenta-se de muitos detalhes e se manifesta em várias situações.
Algumas situações mais comuns nas quais se manifesta o defeito da ira são:

- Discussões em casa ou no trabalho, ainda que de forma sutil.
- Situações desagradáveis e inevitáveis.
- Acidentes de qualquer natureza, como quebrar um objeto estimado.
- Fatos que geram frustração, como quando se está esperando por algo que não acontece.

O defeito da ira pode, sozinho, desgraçar por completo a vida de uma pessoa.
Mais ainda, pode desgraçar também a vida de todos ao seu redor, como infelizmente ocorre, por exemplo, nos tristes casos de violência doméstica.
Não permita de forma alguma que esse defeito influencie negativamente sua vida.
Você já sabe como fazer para evitar isto.

Law of Attraction

by Vaishali

Unless you have been living under a rock, or isolated in a remote cave on a desert island, you have most likely found yourself in a conversation about the latest topic du jour: the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction looks like this:

Thoughts = Attraction

The truth of the matter is that the Law of Attraction is nothing new. It has been around as long as human consciousness. But thanks to the latest DVD, The Secret, this ancient idea is making a modern, popular resurgence.

If you Google "The Law of Attraction" the information you get will describe it as the most powerful force in the universe. However, those who have traveled to the other side and come back to tell the tale, all say that Divine Love is the most powerful force in the universe. So who is right - Google or the Spiritual realm? Attention or Love?

Well actually, they both are. We know this from the works of the great mystic Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772). He spent every day of the last twenty-six years of his life traveling into the Spiritual realm by entering into a trance-like state of extreme focus. Spirit gave him volumes of information to pass on to all of us in physical bodies, so that we might better understand the meaning of our lives. Swedenborg said that we are what we love... and we love whatever we give our attention to. Our awareness, our attention, IS love. Emanuel Swedenborg further said that we do not have love; we ARE love, therefore whatever commands our attention... we love. And, whatever we love, we ARE! We'll call this the Law of Love, and it looks like this:

You = Love = Attention = Love = You

Love is considered the most powerful universal force because it is wholeness making. In other words, it is the power of Love that will bring whatever you focus on into the whole of your life. This can be an extremely sobering reality, especially if you find yourself constantly drifting off into worry, lack, or fear-based thoughts. This means that you cannot spend 10 minutes a day focusing on copious quantities of money pouring into your bank account, and then work 23 hours and 50 minutes building a monument to scarcity with your attention, when you focus on thoughts like, "If only I had (fill in the blank) everything would be okay," or, "why is it there are never enough hours in the day?" Your devoted love for "less" will outweigh your casual flirtation with abundance. It would be like getting your nails done, and then spending the rest of the day biting them down to the quick. The cosmetic attention given to your nails would not stop the destructive end result of total erosion. Also, according to Swedenborg's wisdom, if this (erosion, lack) is where you focus your attention, this is also where you will be living: in a hellishly limited world. Not a pretty thought - which then manifests into your reality.

So, how can we use the Law of Love to improve our everyday life? First, we need to be aware of it. Second, if we are wise, we will be extremely judicious about what we are giving our attention to, because whatever it is, we will be attracting more of it into the whole of our life experience. And, third, whenever we find ourselves focusing on anything limited, we need to immediately put it down, and return our attention to that which is unlimited. The bigger picture is, the Law of Attraction is really just a restatement of the Law of Love. The primary difference is that the Spiritual realm focuses on Love; the human, physical world focuses analytically on thoughts.

The Law of Attraction, because it is based on the Law of Love, will work to bring more life sustaining influences into the whole of your life, IF you do not spend the bulk of your life giving attention to some other fatal attraction. The Law of Love has an intimate relationship with our free will. Whatever we chose to freely love, we are also choosing to freely learn from. Emanuel Swedenborg says, in his prolific writings, that we are here having a human experience to learn that we gain nothing by giving our attention to anything limited. Furthermore, that we learn this truth as a result of what we have practiced freely giving our attention to over the course of our lives. The Law of Attraction works because we have the free will to decide, at any time, that we will give our attention only to what lives in an unlimited place.

Whenever we find ourselves entertaining something limiting with our mind, only we have the free will to put down that thought and return our attention to what is beyond limitation. As Emanuel Swedenborg liked to say, giving attention exclusively to the unlimited is a remembering and a forgetting thing. You have to remember to give your attention to what is unlimited, and simply forget everything else.

Comecei o ano com grandes desafios e lutas profissionais, que mexem comigo emocionalmente, atormentando as minhas aguas bravas por natureza. Ontem, ouve dentro de um grande terramoto ou dito mesmo um tsunami. Não sei como vou conseguir dar volta a tanto requisito físico e psíquico misturado com um leão a solta dentro de mim, que me destabiliza por dentro como a vida do lado de fora me faz também. São tantos os meus pontos fracos que nem sei bem por onde começar. Quando eu estou tratando umas certas áreas da minha essência , a vida dá uma grande volta e outras surgem com alarme vermelho. Parece que passo a vida a apagar fogos em mim . Isso cria instabilidade no trabalho interior, que quero consolidar , fazendo com que saia constantemente do meu caminho e que cada vez mais as quedas me doam mais. Não estou a conseguir fixar florais de Bach para mim durante um mês sequer, sem te necessidade de atacar outra área... que frustração...
