2007-06-10T14:40:00.535-04:00I've always been a big fan of natural sounds vs. synthesized sounds. We listen to so much stuff that is "non-organic" or mechanical. From the blare of traffic horns to the buzzes and beeps of our cell phones, we're surrounded by a horrible sonic soup of unnatural sounds.

2008-12-09T08:55:17.058-05:00Why Most Affirmations Fail and the Four Building Blocks of Successful AffirmationsbyJennifer Shepherd, the Lipstick Mystic®Thanks to all of you who have grabbed a copy of my new eBook. Response to the book has been incredible, and I'm still in shock!I think the main thing people are responding to is how the book isn't a bunch of theory and it's not trying to sell you on a particular spiritual path or belief system. I discuss the nuts and bolts of the Law of Attraction, which is in itself a neutral law, and show you how you can start attracting more of what you WANT instead of what you DON'T WANT.The Law of Attraction shows us that we are constantly CREATING as well as MISCREATING. When we see that it all stems from the same place -- that vibration that we're putting out through our emotions, intentions, and actions -- we can start shifting into experiencing situations that give us happiness instead of sorrow.I've outlined extremely specific steps you can take to put the law of attraction to work for you. And I've laid out four basic building blocks of successful creation in a way that doesn't require you to "believe" anything. These principles simple ARE, and I'm simply encouraging you to make use of them!Testimonials about the book are also pouring in."As I read your delightful ebook, I see it's grounded in common sense, with liberal dashes of zesty inspiration and lots of practical advice from someone who's 'been there, done that.' Awesome!" ---- Cynthia Larson, author of Aura Advantage and publisher of the Reality Shifters website: RealityShifters.com.Don't have a copy yet?

2007-03-21T13:36:49.565-04:00Things have been a little quiet around here lately because I’ve been hatching up a little something special for you.
2007-03-12T15:15:56.433-04:00Montel Williams talked about The Secret today on his talk show. A metaphysical subject turning up on a major talk show (other than Oprah?) Who woulda thunk it was possible!

2007-02-27T18:16:00.765-05:00Instant manifestation is a term that is sometimes thrown around in spiritual circles. It's the idea of creating your reality instantaneously. Instant manifestation is also known as "you create your reality." And although sometimes when we are working with affirmations, power prayer, or applied faith it can seem to take FOREVER before we manifest something we want, manifestation can also happen instantly.I want to share a fun example of instant manifestation that happened to me today.I work from home and I like to go to various diners in our area for a simple soup and sandwich lunch. I find that it's important to my creative juices for me to get out of the house each day and do a little writing while I sit down for a light lunch. So as always, I had notes with me about various writing projects and websites that I'm working on. And the soup I ordered (red pepper and potato!) was excellent, the coffee was strong, and I was buzzing along with creative energy.As I drove back home, preparing to get back to work, I was thinking very specifically that I wanted to manifest some sales that afternoon - or one sale that was for a large amount. I've been working to build different websites that promote various affiliate products, and I've been doing lots of work behind the scenes to build traffic to these sites. Some days, I get no sales. Other days, I get a lot.So I was listening to some jazz music on the radio while driving home and I thought about instant manifestation and how I was ready to instantly manifest something! And I specifically set the intention that I was instantly manifesting some nice new sales for the day.When I got home, I manifested a sale from an unexpected direction. I do a lot of freelance writing for various newspapers and websites, and usually I'm just submitting my self-syndicated column each week and not doing any new assignments for my editors. But to my surprise, one of my editors called out of the blue pitching a very specific, fast turnaround writing job that only I could do. And the job was fun (writing an astrology profile for movie star Jake Gyllenhaal) and it paid the exact amount that I was intending to manifest in sales that day.It was a definite case of instant manifestation, and it carried just the right energy I brought to my intention - energies of fun, speed, and creativity. All those things were incorporated into doing this job. It only took me an hour to complete, too, so it was very fun and easy to do.Instant manifestation gets a lot easier when you don't have any resistance around receiving the thing you're manifesting. I had no resistance to receiving an intriguing new job offer from one of my editors because I enjoy doing all kinds of whimsical spiritual writing gigs and this was right up my alley. Plus, since I've been an astrologer for ages and a freelance writer for almost as long, this job perfectly suited me.So - what are you going to instantly manifest today?Go for it. It's meant to be easy - and fun!You've probably heard about The Secret and the law of attraction. Learn more about instant manifestation and creating your own reality.

2007-02-25T13:26:46.742-05:00Although law of attraction teachers have it right when they say that we can change our reality by shifting our thoughts in a more positive direction, sometimes people get really stuck trying to be positive. This is completely normal.I don't much like it when gurus criticize a student for being too negative. Negativity has its origins in past pains and wounds we have suffered. If we don't work on clearing out that old pain, our ability to remain positive will be hampered. Some teachers naively say that all you have to do is to learn to be positive all the time. They act like it's an instaneous process, to teach your body to hold energy in a different way.The truth is that it doesn't just happen overnight. Yes, our cells are regenerating all the time, and yes, we can gradually send them fresh messages of peace and well-being. But our cells DO tend to hold an energy charge of emotional pain and psychic trauma if we are particularly sensitive or have experienced events that have induced post-traumatic stress disorder.You probably wouldn't think of yourself as someone who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, but psychotherapists are finding that this condition is much more widespread than previously thought. We usually think of PSTD sufferers as people who have been in war zones, but there are hundreds of thousands of "super sensitives" in the US who respond to what some would call "minor stress" as deep trauma. So sometimes a person's body is reacting from a post-traumatic place even if they're simply going through a breakup or a job change. Any time you experience severe stress you can go into post-trauma. And you'll feel the aftereffects for some time afterwards. When a wounded person starts working with the law of attraction, some intense emotions come up. So it's important to go through some sort of release process at a deep, cellular level to release trauma that is buried there. We all have trauma that is buried within our cells. As rebirthing pracitioners have discovered, it all starts out at birth, when we go through tremendous physical and psychic stress. If you don't find a way to release past pain, any new messages that you try to create about being positive and attracting abundance will be drowned out by that denser frequency coming from your past wounds.Fortunately, there are many techniques out there to help you let go of this buried trauma. One technique I especially like was created by Lester Levenson. One of his students, Larry Crane, has continued to teach these ideas. You may have heard of The Release Technique and his book "The Abundance Course." I really like the way Larry teaches. He keeps the release process simple and to the point, teaching you how to connect with negative emotions as they surface and gently release them. By doing this simple work each day, you can easily start to shift your core emotional "tone" to one that is much more positive. There's nothing particulary mystical about Lester Levenson's technique. It's more of an awareness method, a system for teaching you to be more aware of your emotions so you can carefully let go of the ones that no longer serve you.After working with The Release Technique for a few weeks, you'll have released some of that old emotional baggage. Then you'll find it a lot easier to fixate on a new frequency of positivity and joy.Check out Larry Crane's wonderful audio series, in which he guides you through the release process [...]
2007-02-19T16:43:29.106-05:00Many people who have seen the original version of The Secret with Esther Hicks in it found it to be far superior to the version that was released later, which doesn't have her in it. The version of The Secret currently making the rounds doesn't include Esther Hicks.
