How your health number, the number of spiritual capacities, and your earning power are connected?

Warning: read the footnotes!

One of my students in my coaching program taught me something today that I could not see before.

Every student of mine has had one or more health consultations with me, where I muscle tested their supplementation, their eating style and the foods that work best for their body. 1

They also had to set up their water energizer system.

This particular student had her session a long time ago (in October of last year), but she didn't make the changes I suggested. She kept emailing me with her doubts: can I trust that these are the foods I can eat?

I had a heart to heart with Source… and let’s play a game

deafI had a heart to heart today with Source.

The conversation started with me asking how many itch mites I have on me. The numbers just didn't add up... so I asked: "You don't know, do you?" And Source admitted that it didn't know.

The conversation continued about what Source knows and how.

Source does not have eyes to see. Source does not feel. Source only senses. And that is why itch mites can elude its observation: itch mites look and feel dead, inert, not alive, when you observe them. They have legs, they must have legs, because they move when you don't watch them. So, unless an itch mite moves, Source doesn't know it's there. And obviously all I can do is guess... A conversation with Source plays out almost completely inside what I can think of... i.e. in the 2-3-4-5% of what is knowable.

The new worry epidemic

MAC06_WORRYING01-750

This article is long... the original writer was probably paid for each word... In spite of my intent to edit it, I could not make it shorter.

The gist of it is that instead of using our god given ability to think to think things through, to plan, to prevent, we use it instead to worry... Worry is unproductive and makes absolutely no difference. In fact, it makes you stupid... Very stupid, unprepared, make emotional decisions, avoid action... in simple terms, to become a Shrinking Human... instead of an Expanding Human Being.

Oh, and it also makes you sick... if being sick and stupid with worry weren't enough.

Updated: Your emotional baseline and your chances for success

your-emotional-baselineI read a very interesting article 1 today. It is about being able to predict from how you were as a baby and toddler your chances for success, your chances for being smart, your chances for aberrant, deviant behavior, like crime or addictions.

And although most of you, if you read it, will be resigned to how you turned out, or alternatively argue till you are hoarse with the predictions, there is a more constructive way to read the article: get guidance.

Of course, if you are already having trouble in life, you are habitually relating to everything as a good reason to get depressed, turn to the bottle, get angry, or eat more m&m's, but if you are not quite there, there is the guidance I recommend that you get:

All of those signs you demonstrated as a toddler are correctable by the Bach Flower Energies.

If you have a propensity for being impatient, wanting immediate gratification, not being able to hang in there and do what you need to do even if it is tedious, or unsuccessful at the moment, the Bach Flower Energy Impatience will increase your capacity for more patience, so you can actually get something done, learn something, hang in there.
