Good Vibrations – Attraction Good

Raising Your Vibe. Good Vibrations.

5 Great Ways to Raise Your Good Vibration

It’s not a new concept. Way back in the dark ages of the 70’s, my attorney cousin from LA talked about Vibes! Ellen was the happiest, kindest, and least likely to fall into the darkness of anyone I’ve ever met. She was just that happy lady who wanted to help people. She’s the first person whom I heard this from decades ago. I thought it was an LA thing.

The positivity movement has resurged. When people talk about Raising Your Vibration they are simply saying get those Good Vibrations humming along. It’s not just pollyanna positive, and not just a law of attraction theory. It’s the way to build happiness and attract good – lots of good. Some people masterfully raise their vibrations.. others use it to do harm and don’t even know it.

We all want to feel vibrant, happy, healthy, and positive.  Right? We know unconsciously that the way to do that is to combine several techniques.
I’m going to share the good, the bad, and the iffy. And I’m going to post links to some of the books that make a difference. There is a lot of whack out there. And I’ll reinforce the good and help you avoid the whack.

How do we ensure we are amping up our vibrations? How is easy. Why is the question? And when you learn these simple tricks, you can master your good vibrations.
Why do we even care?

you can change everything good vibrations to attract good

Energetic Boundaries by Cyndi Dale

Well, we care because we want to protect ourselves from negative energy. Failing to do so ultimately harms our internal boundaries – the ones that we don’t consciously think about. These are the ones that snag on little entrails of other people’s emotional claws. In the book Energetic Boundaries, the concept becomes clear. We must heal our energy boundaries in order to become free of the entanglements and unwanted hooks others put upon us — things that we accepted at some point are no longer working.

INVISIBLE POWER POSITIONS
We do this in 5  key ways. We make conscious what previously was an unconscious action. We learn to listen to our inner stillness. We come to know. We ask ourselves and listen for the answers. We know intuitively what to do if we turn in.

1: Foods – Eating for what you want – a high vibration, means eating foods that lighten and uplift you. Not diet foods, but foods that reach for the sky. Superfoods. Nutrient Dense, Colorful, high fiber, lower carb, and no sugar, no fake foods.  Sure we want to indulge, but when you do the 9010 program of eating, you naturally raise your body to a higher vibration. Eating better attracts all kinds of good. You know this. You know that when you clean up your diet, cut out the low fiber, no nutrient white foods, you feel lighter. You know that by simply cutting out heavy fatty foods you suddenly feel more energized. And you know that when you get rid of the sugary stuff, you have a steadier energy flow all day long.

A powerful book I picked up while in nutrition school crystallized my belief that food energy is not just the nutrients but how the food source was nurtured, raised, and processed. Steve Gagner goes into it deeply in his book, Food Energetics.

2: Activities – This one is simple. The more you move, the more energy you have. The more energy you feel, the more you do. This is step one in raising your vibrations. Good vibrations hum about you and other people feel it. You feel better. They feel good about you. That’s good vibrations.  And balancing this with calm is so important. I know. I can be absolutely energized to the point I walk in a room and heads turn. I’m not doing anything but feeling good and happy. What they feel is an energetic pull. It frightens some.  I eventually learned to find a balance. In part, seeking your tribe of movers helps with this one. It’s hard to maintain that high activity vibe when your friends want to sit and smoke and feast on crap food. So seek out your tribal dancers and get up offa that thang.  yeah, James Brown had it going on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_uNMy20qAI

3: Powerful Choices – Ok this is tricky. Choices make the difference. Do you feel down some days? Feel hopeless, unworthy, unloved? Do you dwell on the past? Do you find yourself remorseful? I wasted far too much time grieving for what was never to be. I wanted what I couldn’t have and it was out of my control. But I loved them so much, I kept trying to figure out what I did that was so wrong — and there was nothing! CHOICES — POWERFUL CHOICES are the turning points. And when you CHOOSE POWERFULLY — you infuse yourself with a higher vibrational tuning.

4: Attentions – what you resist persists. Please give yourself a break. If you are constantly fighting something that keeps showing up in your conscience, address it. Don’t hide.There is a message there. But don’t obsess either. What you pour your attention on is what you bring to you. For example, when you focus on what you want – a job, a man, a new car — everything you see is filtered by that want. So when you focus on what you don’t want, that also becomes what you see.  I’m all for attending to stuff, and not ignoring the stinking thinking. It comes from somewhere, so it’s good to root it out. If you kill the top flower of a week, the root keeps growing. So while tending the garden of you, you have to keep an eye on the results you want and be willing to get rid of what you don’t. When you pull out the roots, they no longer grow. That’s freedom!

5: Intentions – Be clear here. What you intend must be aligned with you. You must find the way to hold your intentions in your heart-center, and know that while some things take time, all things are available when we are aligned with our intentions. My intention right now is to reset, to restart, to find the answer to How Can I Retire and Make a LOT of Money with much less effort? That’s where I am. I’m intending to find solutions. The Intention Experiment is a juicy look into setting your intentions clearly. And many thanks to my friend, Mark Andersen for sending this to me. Such a nice gift from a good friend.

This morning, as I again revised a resume to pitch to another employer how great I think I am, I ran into an audio on Monster.com.  It’s not just another how to make money book pitch. It’s a lady who shares how she constantly struggled and then ultimately reclaimed her right to win and be bold.
Right there on Monster was a talk and an idea: Believe in your self. Be a Bad Ass. You are a Badass. So be one with it. And quickly, I picked up two books:

and

Why is any of this important? Why can’t we just go through life, living it on life’s terms? Why does intentionally raising our vibration even matter? Well, it matters because if you become the one people dump their story on when they are down but they run away when you are down, you are somehow letting them steal your energy. It became essential to me to re-establish and heal energetic boundaries. And then I had to reclaim my intentions. If you are a sensitive, an empath, a healer or even a caregiver, you know some of this. You just do. Turn inward, tap in, and see if it resonates.

It’s not that I want to start completely over. If I did, I’d be throwing away what I hold near and dear. ME. The ME I worked so hard to cultivate. The ME that had to accept what is in order to create what would be the new me. Failure wasn’t the issue. Rejection by loved ones was. I had to fight back from nothing into something and that included restoring the real me. The challenge is to maintain good vibrations while I swim through the challenging upstream of relaunching. The hard part is the rocks and boulders I encounter, and the easy part is to keep focusing on raising my good vibrations so that I bump up against but don’t bruise me.

That’s why I know. I know how hard it can be. I know that when CS called me and said: “You just aren’t happy enough for me. I’m letting you go” It wasn’t about me. And it still hurt. I hadn’t hired her. I said something she took wrong. And she judged me.  Fine enough. For I know this was the same woman who cried rivers on my shoulder about her crappy family stuff. I knew too that there was some truth to it for life was giving me a lesson and I’d not found the solutions yet. Beware the trolls! They sneak up on you, say something, and you have to be strong enough to take what you like and leave the rest.  Or leave it all. 🙂

The IFFY STUFF:
And that’s where the iffy stuff comes in. You can raise your good vibrations on your own. You don’t need a guru. You can get those Good Vibrations in so many ways. There is so much on this planet for us. But we must watch out for self-proclaimed guru’s who take our money while building their dreams of false lies and misperceptions. It’s sometimes cult like attractions.
I just tested this out. I have a lot of knowledge and experience. But someone offered a cheap online coaching thing that sounded fun. Lady offered dirt cheap coaching in a group. I may have been seeking synergy and friends, but after 45 days of so called online coaching, I knew they were not of my tribe. The pattern was clear. On day 40 she stopped doing her daily stuff and was promoting gently her next class – which of course was 3 x the price. The promise is an intangible feel good storyline and the offer is I can help you blah blah blah. If you accept, you pay to play, she tells you what she thinks, and you either get what you came for or you don’t. The results don’t last long so the coach hopes you go back for more.

“I hurt – they say they have answers – I feel better for a minute – then they are asking for more and more money – I’m not so sure anymore – one more class — then another – then wtf am I doing here!@”

Yeah — be your own guru. And if you want some help learning to do that, of course, I can help you. I’m not a guru. I’m not a saint. And a lot of self-proclaimed guru’s get really angry at me when I dare to share what I know. I’m not a threat to them, but they feel something challenging about me. It must be because I teach my clients and myself to tap into their own inner wisdom.

 

Light Easy Summer Meals – call for a end of summer special coaching session

Light Easy Summer Meals?   Oh yeah, you can. Ban the donuts. Toss out that cereal. Skip the Oatmeal. I never thought to question the typical American breakfast until I was on a tour in Isreal. Every breakfast was cucumber, tomato, and cheese with maybe a little bread.  And why not? During these hot summer days, a fresh and flavorful breakfast needs to be cold, light and refreshing.

Have you ever thought about how to make breakfast light, refreshing, and colorful? It’s been pretty hot here in the Pacific Northwest. So hot that I’m more likely to skip breakfast if there’s nothing refreshing. Oatmeal on a hot day just does not appeal.

Chopped Mediterranean Salad is filled with color, texture, and a light crunch.There’s just something about eating a bowlful of color and texture with a light snap on those hot days.
Add some crunch or add some protein, and you have a great start to a hot, sizzling day. And if like me, you make enough extra that you get to enjoy it for dinner too.

I showed one on my facebook page: @ramblinlambwellness
Here’s the original: http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/food/1.698731

My twist on this Mediterranean Salad:
Chop up in similar sized bite-sized chunks:
Cucumber
Tomato
Red Pepper
Red onion
Some Parsley
Basil
Add Feta Crumbles
sliced or chopped Calamata Olives
Options:
Chopped Avocado
Gabanzo or Pinto Bean
Can use Black Olives instead of Calamatas

Dress with
Lemon Juice
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

It’s so good. And the colorful bowl makes for a happy, high vibration day.

Want more? There is so much to play with to create light easy summer meals. Thinking out of the box is great. Consider eating for fuel. Think about light easy ways to adopt your favorite meals. Save time by cooking once and cooking enough to create several meals. Roast a chicken or two, and prepackage some light combinations of vegetables. You’ll have a nice selection of homemade and prepackaged light easy meals at the ready.  It’s how we roll at the BeWellBistro. Keeping a stock of light easy meals starts with a bit of forethought. Check out our health coaching programs.  http://www.ramblinlambwellness.com

Have you ever just eaten something that made you smile? Felt a bit of a buzz? I mean the good kind of buzz when you just have a happy vibe and feel a bit of pep?
Have you ever noticed the colors and textures in your foods?
I was in a coaching circle where the coach claimed that her program would help people raise their vibration. The only thing that was not purely wish craft was the simplicity of cleaning up your diet. But she gave no tips, offered no real nutritional thought other than Clean Your Diet and do my meditations.

It’s so funny how easy it is. One simple little thing can tip your balance to a better food profile. For me, it’s often starting with plenty of fresh produce in the morning.
I don’t even mean a juice or smoothie anymore. I mean eat a bowl of vegetables or fruit. No one said you have to eat bread or cereal for breakfast. Pancakes? Haven’t had them in years. It’s a total misnomer.
Breakfast can be anything.

We no longer live in a world where we have to carb load for a full day’s energy like the hunters and farmers did. It is rare that anyone needs to eat like they are burning off thousands of calories before lunch.

Self-Nurturing Day 4 – Do something new

Self-Nurturing Project Day 4 was all about taking care of that which needed attention.

Self-Nurturing Day 4 - Visible Results

Day 4 – Do something new to you

Self-Nurturing Day 4 is about visible and invisible results – back to a state of grace – back to being all that one is. Self-Nurturing Day 4was all about growth and stretching.  If you don’t know you can do something, and then you do it well, it feels good.
I enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone. I did some things I don’t normally do. I fixed the grout in 2 bathrooms, then I caulked a couple places. This sounds simple if you know what you are doing. I don’t.  I finally decided I had to take care of it. I was committed. If I was buying a house, I’d look at all the little things as part of my decision. The cracked grout made a gorgeous bathroom look old and worn. It’s pretty good, eh?

I felt happy when I finished this little project. It didn’t take long. It had been bothersome for a long time. Doing it accomplished 3 things: 1) stretching my skills, 2) visual sense of accomplishment and 3) a little boost of confidence.  Sure there were a couple moments, but easily handled. And the beauty is I know – as a woman – that doing this is going to help sell the house.  That gives me a bit more peace and hope.

Good Job, Kiddo!

And there’s more Self-Nurturing Day 4.  This Self-Nurturing Project is already becoming a gift.

In Your Greatest Gift, by Richard Dotts, I am daily reminded of the value of going deep into peace. Many are immersing themselves into books and thought on manifestation. It’s always been somewhat elusive to me – but the key is revealed in this work. Thus, each morning, I ask myself the following question in the quiet zone:

  1. What one thing can I do today to nurture me?

I follow it with other solution questions and especially this one:

  1. What one thing can I do today to fulfill my needs?
Self Nurturing Day 4 - plan your work

Self-Nurturing Day 4 – Learn from the Masters

Today’s Self-Nurturing Project – Day 4 of 365 Days of Self-Nurturing found me studying the copywriting masters. It began with a Facebook post by a new writer.  As I answered, I dug up some information. It led me to study – seriously study from the masters. AND create my reading list for 2016.  This is important. This is critical. I need to make some lasting changes. And I am focusing again.

I am a writer. I’ve been writing since 7th grade. It was my way. I returned to writing as my need for self-expression (without interruption) grew. When I write, no one edits me before I finish my thought. No one cuts me off before I hit the last period. It is a journey into self-expression as a healing art. Then it became a career. I wrote letters, training,  and articles for non-profits. Then the technical revolution hit and there was more money to be made serving software, aerospace, and financial corporations.

Journey ==> Journaling — Get it?  My high school English teacher, Mr. Foubert, had us write in a journal every day. We had to turn in our journals for review. Mr. Foubert mocked mine at first. It was all emotional stuff until I learned what he wanted: Essays on stuff that matters in life. I don’t remember exactly what happened, but he taught me to think. He taught me to look deeply for understanding and to discuss meaningfully.   Mr. Foubert ignited my passion for real writing – essays about life, about worthwhile issues, about how to express in a meaningful way. Mr. Foubert taught me to think, to review, to write.   We learn from the most unexpected situations, right?  

After several short-lived career attempts, writing became my career. I wrote letters, training,  and articles for non-profits. Then the technical revolution hit and there was more money to be made serving software, aerospace, and financial corporations.  And always, I wrote in my journal. 

Haven’t you often done something because it was fun and fulfilling – and later thought about how to transition into doing that for a living? That’s what I did. Back then, the act of writing was the self-nurturing project that worked for me. Thus, Self-Nurturing Day 4 involves journaling and writing — and learning to grow. The commitment here is to study from the masters. I made my list. I have the beginnings of a clear plan. It matters not that it’s not crystal clear yet. It’s still a beginning and it’s only Self-Nurturing Day 4.

What comes easy to me is as a hobby requires a focused study if I am to make this work.
2016 is getting off to a hot start and I want to ensure I survive.  My list will guide me.

That said, this is a great time to introduce an inspiration for me. Meet Lori Morgan Ferrero – She’s the Red Hot Copy lady who ignites passion with purpose in her writing.  Studying from the masters is the way to go. If you are looking for a great retirement income, check out her books. While I’d rather everyone hire me, I’ll have to admit I learn much from the inspiration of others and Lori is at the top of my list. She’s got the women’s perspective, she’s classy, and she’s a spark of red hot positivity.

Part of self nurturing is expanding the brain. Doing one thing every day that I don’t normally do may become a habit. I highly encourage anyone reading this to consider it as part of your recovery from stagnancy.

Goal Setting or Effective Action

Goal Setting Day 2016.

January 1, 2016. It’s almost here. The big day when we all start talking about Goal Setting and New Years Resolutions. Do you still do it? Publicly claim your new year’s resolution?  Goal Setting or Effective Action Planning — introducing a new way to change your mindset and really achieve results

I propose you do it differently this year. Make it an Effective Action Map — a circular process that takes you from dream to vision, to obliterating the blocks, to asking solution based questions, identifying what is in your toolkit, creating an effective plan, taking action, knowing how you will feel when you reach you have achieved, and finally celebrating your success.  

It matters not how big or how small the goal is. What matters is that you learn this strategy for acheiving real results.  

On my new page,  I demonstrate the value of circular mapping to success.  Take a look. I’d love to hear what you think. I know it looks like a fun diagram, but I am proof that it works.
