I have decided to begin creating a “Love List”. Its something that I have been reading about lately that I think would help our country and the World to make it better in the new age. We need to begin to start feeling the right feelings if we ever expect to get better results from our thoughts and actions. Its not just what we think about but also how we feel when we think the thoughts we want to create. My motto has been for the last few years “Thoughts Become Things” but I have been catching myself not adding the right feelings to those thoughts. If we think amazing thoughts but lack the amazing feelings that should go along with those thoughts we are actually telling the Universe the opposite of what we really want. Thoughts are the first step and feelings are the next step. After that step comes the result, receiving. If we think the right thoughts and feel the wrong feelings we are attracting those bad feelings along side the thoughts we want to create. Then we are working against ourselves. We start to think the awesome thoughts of what we want but then stick the resentment or worry of not getting fulfillment from those thoughts and then it begins to work against us in the worst way. That bad pit in your stomach you feel when you really want something because you begin to imagine what would happen if it doesn’t come to fruition is how the Universe will read your message.
So lets begin by writing a list of what we love or who we love. Even writing what we want to happen to those that we love. You don’t have to only write about yourself. If you write about what joy it would be to see or hear your friend or loved one get that promotion or get a new car or whatever, you are still sending out a great feeling of joy and happiness. You are giving those feelings to the Universe and you will receive those feelings back to you and more! If you express yourself to that person about how awesome it would be if they got that promotion or that new car they really wanted, those same people that will receive that good news will only be able to thank you for your support along the way. That message is now being sent to the Universe by not just one person but by two, you and your friend or loved one. Do you see how much more powerful these feelings can be? Even if they do not receive those things they can only still thank you for your support during that process.
You can even do this for those that you may not particularly feel comfortable to support or be around. But like the quote says, “Love conquers all”. Even if you have had bad blood with this person or they have seemed to not make your life any easier, you can still find ways of gratitude for them. Usually the recommendation is to just walk away from these type of people. Leave them alone to suffer their own pain from the pain they force onto others but in some cases you might have to stay connected to these people. Whether they are siblings or other family members or they could be ex-spouses that you need to stay in contact with due to having children with them. This last example runs very close to home. I have an ex-wife that has not made things easy on me. I have fallen into the trap that I always wanted to avoid but with me not using the law of attraction to my advantage I have helped create a bad situation. I won’t go into details but my resentment for the things she has done has created reactions from me that I wish I could have done differently. I have allowed a lot of poor decisions to be made. I concentrated on the bad instead of a solution. So to show you that I practice what I preach, moments before typing this blog entry I emailed my ex with a note of gratitude. I have looked past the pain of the last couple years and I want to make a change. I found things that I can be grateful for in her. I told her and felt the correct feelings while telling her these things. We can not be prisoners of our pasts any longer. Even if she may not want to accept what I wrote due to her still wanting to be upset or hateful for whatever she still wants to hold on to, its now out there for her and the Universe to read. You can not change the way someone else feels about a situation until you accept the way you have felt about it and then move on towards a positive resolution. The first step is to show appreciation. And feel appreciation. This was my first step.
I will be creating a “Love List” on a big poster board tonight. When I am done, whether it be tonight or tomorrow, I will post it to show you my example. I hope you follow suit. Only good things can come from it. But make sure you are feeling the right feelings while creating your list. That is the key, feeling Love.
The past week or so has really sucked. On Friday the 21st of December, I woke up with a sore throat. I went out to a comedy show that night, and didn’t feel sick. I just had a sore throat. I woke up the next day with the full-blown flu.
My parents were already at my sister’s house in Orange County, and I was to drive there the 23rd or 24th. It never happened, as the flu got worse. I felt like I had been run over by a steam roller. I was just exhausted and my neck hurt for a day. I took really good care of myself by sleeping a lot. I had an appetite, so I just kept eating. I used my neti pot every day and gargled with warm salt water. I think all of that is what helped me. Though I was sick for 7…
I want to thank everyone that has helped me get through this very difficult year. I want to thank everyone that will help me along the way this upcoming New Year 2013! I plan on making this one an EPIC year, the beginning of MANY EPIC years to come! Filled with hope and love.
I want to thank those that have opened my eyes to the fact that I can not change those that don’t want to be, I can only show love and move on and wish them the happiest of lives.
I have made many mistakes and I am owning up to them and correcting the ones I can and learning from them all. I love my wife and my family, my children, my parents(past & present), my siblings(past & present) and my friends(past & present)….I love you all. I am here changing my life for the better and I intend to do so by helping others. With good intentions motivating me I will succeed in everything I put love and effort into.
I am evolving and willing continue to do so until the day I leave to the great hereafter, which is THE ULTIMATE evolution. Don’t stop learning, listening and loving. Thank you to everyone! Have an AMAZING 2013! I know I will AND SO WILL YOU!
I hope everyone had a great holiday! Things are going to pick up in 2013 for us and everyone else! This is going to be a time of togetherness and love! Old thought processes are going to fall by the waist side to make room for a new way of thinking! The catch is that its really NOT a new way of thinking, it has always been THE WAY! Just, now, we are all going to begin to FEEL the right way towards our fellow humans. We are going to realize that we shouldn’t stay quiet any longer! We need to GIVE in order to RECEIVE!
The 80s and 90s were all about greed and brought on corruption beyond belief and we are seeing the institutions that brought on that greed begin to crumble before our eyes. They are crumbling because they forgot about the one thing that can sustain success = GOOD INTENTIONS! It is okay to want money and a big house and nice things as long as you remember to be grateful for them before AND after you receive them. The one way to show that gratefulness is to GIVE BACK every chance you get! Whether giving time to someone in need, giving help, lending an ear or anything…pay it forward. Help someone with change at the register..whatever you can think of. Show LOVE and compassion towards one another and when you do remember the FEELING you get when giving, that FEELING should motivate you to continue giving everyday of your life. You are starting a chain reaction that will bring more LOVE into the world. Those you help will feel the motivation to help others and so on and so on…..
One last thing, the way to begin your own success along side of helping is to practice the Creation Process : Imagine it, Feel it, Receive it! Never stop thinking, never stop using your Imagination! That is THE KEY!
The following are words that screenwriter Tony Kushner gave to President Lincoln near the end of Steven Spielberg‘s film biography. Those words were addressed at healing our nation after the 13th Amendment brought an end to both slavery and the civil war, but they apply equally well to gun violence, financial greed, and virtually every other self-serving evil that afflicts our nation today.
The words seem especially apropos today:
English: Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States. Latviešu: Abrahams Linkolns, sešpadsmitais ASV prezidents. Српски / Srpski: Абрахам Линколн, шеснаести председник Сједињених Америчких Држава. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
“If we submit ourselves to law, even submit to losing freedoms; the freedom to oppress, for instance, we may discover other freedoms previously unknown to us.
Suppose that all we’ve done is show the world that democracy isn’t chaos; that there is a great invisible strength in a people’s union. Say we show that a people can endure awful sacrifice and yet cohere, mighten that save at least the idea of democracy to aspire to? Eventually to become worthy of? At all rates, whatever may be proven by blood and sacrifice must have been proved by now.
I am getting a little sick of the mass hysteria of the NRA and the other gun owners thinking Obama and the liberals want ALL of their guns! Like Balky from Perfect Strangers would say, “Well of course not, Don’t be RidiculOOS!”
Let’s make this abundantly clear : You can have your handguns and your hunting rifles BUT give up and stop selling MILITARY STYLE WEAPONS such as ASSAULT RIFLES AND STOP PROVIDING 100 ROUNDCLIPS!!! This diversion of the facts and the truth is giving me a GOP headache that’s reminiscent of the Romney/Ryan campaign. Seriously, this has got to stop!

The weapons that killed the men, women and children in the movie theater in Colorado and that killed the women and children in Newtown Connecticut were military style assault rifles! Not handguns! The shooters had way too much ammo, 100 round clips, that should not be legal for anyone that is NOT in the military. The hand gun that was used in Newtown was used to kill Adam Lanza. I have nothing against that handgun.
Please, lets not get fooled into thinking that ALL of our guns are going to be collected….Just the ones that are made for mass destruction, that’s all. You don’t need armor piercing bullets because deers don’t wear bullet proof vests…..you don’t need assault rifles with 100 round clips because those deers and wildlife you want to shoot are not assaulting you.
It’s time to get real! Stop the panic, it’s not real! I have a feeling that 2013 is going to bring a lot of change but, unfortunately, I think along with that change will bring a lot of resistance to that change by old institutions and old thinking. I hope common sense will come out on top, actually I know it will but unfortunately, I think it will come with more heartache due to those that can not evolve.
I can not come close to imagine as to what you are going through. As a parent to a 4 year old daughter and a 10 year old son, it breaks my heart to think about you being witness to last Friday‘s incident. I have created jewelry whose meaning is perfect for you to heal. They are called Inspiration Angels. The wings are connected so the wearer can spin them. The meaning behind them is :”Spin the wings and Remember your Blessings”. They are meant to remind the recipient of what to be grateful for in their life. It may be tough to think of something after going through such a catastrophe but there is always something. Whether it being the time you spent with such an inspiration and brave soul like Ms. Soto. Or being one of the last people to see one of the children lost, one of their last smiles or being able to hear their last laughs as it cackled through the hallways or classroom that morning.
I personally want to thank every single one of you. I am thankful for you! You have a tough road ahead. You have to be strong for the students. You are so courageous for continuing your position but you will not be looked down upon if you need time away. It is natural to find your release. Without releasing, without reconnecting to your source and going through the proper grieving process you will not be any good to your students. Please take your time. Grab on to your Inspiration Angel, close your eyes and be thankful that you can move on and teach the most important lesson in Life : Teach the lesson of Love.
My heart breaks but it is nothing compared to what they are going through. It is the least I can do. Love is contagious, Spread it! Here are the Inspiration Angels that are on their way to Newtown, Connecticut.
I have the Inspiration Angels packaged with names of some of the staff of Sandy Hook Elementary School labelled with each Angel. It takes a lot out of me just to write their names down and have to leave a few out due to this catastrophe. I hope they will get to them..I know they will get to them and when they do it will be right when they need them. I wish this was under different circumstances but I know I am doing the work given to me. Now I have to write the letter that will go with them. This may take a while to get down, not that I will leave them a book but I may have to stop from time to time to collect myself. Thank you all for your support and kind words. Please take some time when you can to stop over to the Facebook page to lend a kind word and some support to that community :
I have created these necklaces for the purpose of those with heavy hearts and those that are going through rough times. I think it fitting I send them to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut.
Being a parent of a 4 year old girl and a 10 year old boy myself, I can not imagine what they are going through right now. I can not imagine getting the phone call. I can not imagine having to wait outside the school wondering if your child was alive or… I can not imagine the dread and then sorrow one would feel getting the worst news ever possible.
I want the parents, teachers and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary to know that there ARE good people out there. There ARE people that are sending them love and hope. My Inspiration Angels are meant to give the wearer some hope. They are meant to remind the wearer that there still is something to be grateful for. During these times it will be tough to remember that. There faith may be shaken, I understand. Faith in humanity. Faith in society. Faith in government. Faith in the good in the world. Well I am here to show them one of the first signs that people not of there town or state DO care. We are EVERYWHERE. We are standing by Newtown Connecticut with are arms wide open. With a tear running down our cheek letting them know to cry, to mourn and to remember those amazing children and teachers that lost there lives. But remember them alive. Remember the awesome times you shared a laugh with them. The feelings you had when you witnessed them showing their love for someone else. They were here on Earth to give us those memories. We will not forget them. Ever.
I am not only sending the Inspiration Angels to the school district but also to different churches in the community. I am sending my entire supply.
And when they arrive to you Newtown remember to Spin those Wings and Remember your Blessings. They will be watching and loving you from above.
