Religious Path

So I decided today in the middle of all my hustle and bustle in my work (and it has been a day) to stop and refresh myself. How does one do that? Well I stop and just let my fingers do the typing on the keyboard of course. I went and took this quiz titled What is your faith? the answer was a series of answers. What the quiz does is tell you in percentages what you closely represent. So rather then go through each one individually I thought I would post the top 10

6. New Age - 74%

7. Hinduism - 73%

8. Reform Judaism - 71%

9. Sikhism - 70%

10. Mahayana Buddhism- 65%

SO there you have it. I would of linked more but blogger seemed to have a problem with me wanting to give more links. It is pretty interesting I must admit. What I found most interesting is the religion that I grew up on the one that I was sent to a private school for I do not see on the top 10. Gee where did it fall? Glad you asked ... it was listed as 17 with a 55% match.

I found it interesting. Will it change the direction of my life?

Healing Prayer


Good day all and welcome to another fun filled day of heat in Miami where as the weatherman said this morning "Bad hair days from today till at least October." Remind me why I like this guy?

So my energies are now being focused on the Gulf and the water and those poor helpless animals out there. So one of my bestest Spiritual shops Five Sisters is posting a beautiful prayer/meditation that we hope will go around the world. Basically the more people that read and say it the better it is. The cost to you is nothing but the benefits to the earth and the creatures on it is outrageous.

Message Head Dr. Masaru Emoto's Healing Prayer for the GulfFocusing our energies in response to the Gulf tragedy and for healing the waters and its inhabitants -Dr. Masaru Emoto who many of you will recognize as the scientist from Japan who has done all the research and publications about the characteristics of water.

Among other things, his research reveals that water physically responds to emotions.Right now, most of us have the predominantly angry emotion when we consider what is happening in the Gulf. And while certainly we are justified in that emotion, we may be of greater assistance to our planet and its life forms, if we sincerely, powerfully and humbly pray the prayer that Dr Emoto, himself, has proposed. So here is the proactive approach with energy. We all have the ability to HELP, SO PLEASE DO SO!!!

"I send the energy of love and gratitude to the water and all the living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings. To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, plankton, coral, algae, and all living creatures. . . I am sorry. Please forgive me....Thank you....I love you." - Dr. Masaru Emoto

We are passing this request to people who we believe might be willing to participate in this prayer, to set an intention of love and healing that is so large, so overwhelming that we can perform a miracle in the Gulf of Mexico.We are not powerless. We are powerful. Our united energy, speaking this prayer daily...multiple times daily....can literally shift the balance of destruction that is happening.We don't have to know how......we just have to recognize that the power of love is greater than any power active in the Universe today. Just say it!!! Over and over! It will shift!!!

Please join us in repeating this healing prayer of of Dr. Emoto's. And feel free to copy and paste this to send it around the planet. Let's take charge, and do our own clean up!

Meditating technique made simple

Ok so I said I would give you a real easy exercise or technique to do in order to get you on the road to meditating. Once you see how easy I am certain that you will achieve that happy quiet time where you can truly listen to your soul.

I want you to close your eyes and just simply focus on your breath. Yes I said your breath. Take your time. With each breath in, it will bring more and more relaxation, and with each exhalation, I want you to let go of all stresses and tension. Try this for five minutes, focusing on the regular rhythm of your breathing. You’ll become increasingly relaxed with each breath. Just let it happen. Let it all go and relax. If your mind starts to wander that is fine do not worry, just focus back on your breath. If thoughts come in, acknowledge them and acknowledge them as they leave again. You know how to do that don’t you just very quietly, calmly say “not now thank you later.” Notice how it feels to be completely relaxed. Continue to focus on your breath, while you let the mind chatter slow down and fade away. If you are used to the hustle and bustle and the constant noise this may take a little while but just keep at it. It is normal to have thoughts pop in, let them come and invite them to go.

Now, in your mind’s eye, which is located between your eyebrows (known as “The Third Eye”), I want you to imagine a symbol of your choosing. It can be a flower, a religious figure or icon, a single word, or whatever is pleasing to you. Make it your own special symbol, one that you use every time you meditate. At this point, just focus without straining on your chosen symbol. Now slowly inhale using your breath, but this time bring your awareness up to your Third Eye as you focus on your symbol. It’s almost as if you’re breathing in and out through this center. Do this for another five minutes. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to the breath and your symbol. This will then bring you back. Now you can use this symbol has your focus and guide in meditating. If you find you need more time to do some of this focusing then do follow your instinct. Remember this is for you and your inner peace.

During this relaxed state, it’s a perfect time to ask your higher-self for an answer to a specific question. You may get the answer in any number of ways. You may see an image, a scene, or beautiful colors. Equally, your spirit guides may make themselves known to you. The answer may not be immediate and sometimes it may come to you a few days later. Alternatively, you may be at the right place at the right time to receive your answer immediately. Do not worry about what or how you may get messages or answers just enjoy this time to reconnect with your inner self.

When you are done and ready to return, wriggle your fingers as you bring your awareness back to your body, and start to bring yourself back so that you become aware of the room around you. Remain seated for a moment and allow your consciousness to fully absorb your meditation, so you remember how calm you felt now that you’ve achieved the process of stilling the mind. In this peaceful state, anything is possible!

It really is a beautiful thing when you can take a moment to yourself, I mean your inner self, and then come back stronger then ever.

Technology can bite

This is what I am learning in my journey and I thought I would share it with you.

Your soul is speaking to you all the time. Most of us live in this fast paced world where technology is increasingly dictating our lives and lifestyle. Phones are constantly ringing or texting and the speed of response is less and less. It almost appears like people want their response NOW. With all this going on sometimes it makes it hard to hear your soul calling out to you. Now if you have no need to listen to your soul and enjoy the constant technological sounds then that is fine and you should thank the Technological angels for being near you. But if you wish to shut it down a little and perhaps listen to what your soul and spirits might be saying then I would suggest Meditation. Ok yes I know you say gee that is easy for you not so easy for me. I think it is easier then you think. When the body is in a state of calmness, the mind will eventually become still. It’s in this state of total relaxation that clarity can be found, as well as forging a stronger connection with your soul. Meditation is one of the key tools that will help you integrate your body, mind, and soul to become centered and grounded – to become one. This will promote a state of balance. You will feel more capable of dealing with your busy schedule, and over time, meditation will alleviate some of the tensions that you may be holding inside your body. Once these tensions are eliminated, it’s often the case that associated minor ailments can disappear as well.

So give it a shot. In the mornings find a quiet silent place and dedicate 5 to 10 minutes to being alone in this quiet place. Now if you say OMG I don’t have 10 minutes to spare oh alone, then to me that is the first obstacle you need to overcome. If you do not have 10 minutes to dedicate to yourself then you have a problem. I mean seriously 10 minutes for your spirit and soul is not a lot to ask for. Try meditating and just sitting there over time you may want to increase. In another posting I will write just a real easy way to start your meditation. No need right now to go out and spend money on tapes you have all the tools you need within you.

Later this week (or tomorrow) I will post a real easy way to get started on meditating something you can do all on your own with no help from anyone and you can do it in any place. What would be nice is to now start looking for a place you will designate as your “alone” space. This can be your bedroom in the mornings, your bedroom in the evenings, the living room, den, bathroom outside balcony or garden just look for a place. If you practice meditating in this place what will happen is over time you will walk into this space and you will feel that positive energy and you will find yourself meditating with ease.

Friday is here yee pee

Ok today is Happy Friday. This has been one heck of a week. So in keeping with my centering and peaceful existence below you will find the saying/phrase

The master does nothing, yet he leaves nothing undone. The ordinary man is always doing things, yet many more are left to be done. The highest virtue is to act without a sense of self. The highest kindness is to give without condition. The highest justice is to see without preference.

This weekend will be a nice one, I am going to go meet up with some long time friends on Saturday. This is part of the "Group" some of us have not seen each other in years. We hooked up on Facebook and we actually had one get together almost a year ago and we thought we need to do this again and try to get more of the "Group" to come out. I think it will mean more get togethers more frequent then once a year. We shall see how it goes.

Ok so it has only been 10 days since I last wrote seriously is that really that bad anymore? It is not like I have not been writing just not writing here. I have like real articles that get 100s of views- ok one time I had over 3000 then dropped to 300 and now we are breaking between the 20 and 80 mark. What can I say some days are better then others. But my quest for better enlightenment is much still strong. Daily meditations are taking place and I am finding a nice sense of serenity. I have noticed that things that really use to bother me and get me all rallied up now are just a little annoying but not over whelming so for that I am grateful to my guides of wisdom.

So speaking of guides of wisdom today is my inspiring release of good nature towards all. I think today should be a day that we do a random act of kindness to someone. But here is the catch do not let them know you did just do it and release it. Do not expect anything back in return just do it. I am not sure many people can do that. I can and I will. Plus here is the bonus it does not have to be towards someone you know it can be to a stranger.

Since I am on a roll a little wisdom on Tao. What is Tao you say?

In Tao-te ching, Tao is the name given by Lao-tzu to the Great Pervader or the Mother of all Things. Tao is the creator and sustainer of everything in the Universe. It is described as follows:
There was something undefined and complete, coming into existence before Heaven and Earth... (Tao-te ching, chap. 25, Legge version)

There was something formless and perfect before the universe was born. It is serene. Empty. Solitary. Unchanging. Infinite. Eternally present. It is the Mother of the universe. For lack of a better name I call it the Tao.

So there you go.

So much time

So times seems to go by at it's own pace while we go at ours and many times we look and boy how quickly you have gone Mr. Time. It appears both Time and I go at a different pace but it's all good.

Toronto was great! The weather was nice at times during the day a bit hot but not like here, at night it was pretty nice. I met some really nice people and listened to some really inspirational speeches. I also participated in some nice workshops. I am a better person for going. I find myself waking up and giving thanks for protection and asking for guidance and wisdom throughout the day. I am inspired to make this writing thing more successful. The passion for it is alive and I think I am going to go and follow it. Who knew all my gossip-know-how may earn me some extra money.

The summer is here officially because it is hot as can be! Plus this also means TV is on a repeat high with the exception that Burn Notice is back! Oh finally a show to watch during the summer (until Big Brother begins) that is full excitement, fun, sex appeal, and takes place in Miami!
