THE POWER OF INTENTION – DR. WAYNE DYER

From the time of infancy….we have become disconnected to the Source/Universe/God…..we lose touch with the energy that links everyone and everything.  Ask yourself – why are you reading my blog write now?  What makes you read about spirituality or related topics?  The reason is simple – we made our intentions clear that we want to re-connect to the that field of energy  where everything is connected to Source/Universe/God.

Here is a brief summary of The Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer:

WHY SO NEGATIVE?

Have you ever wondered why there are so many people in your life who constantly complain about not having enough love, happiness, success and harmony in their lives?  We know who these people are – we’ve all had them in our lives at one point or another.  Think about what their negativity does to you emotionally and physically….is this feeling a feeling you want to be connected to?  The simple truth is that we attract what we want into our lives – if you surround yourself with people who are negative, that is what you will attract.  A drama queen will usually gossip about others, get involved in the lives of others and therefor attract the same things and then may ask “why is there so much drama in my life, why don’t people just deal with their own problems”?

I have been caught up in the drama and negativity of others – I gossiped and made harsh judgements on the lives of others until I realized that by allowing this behaviour to continue, I would always have this behaviour sucking all the positive energy out of me.  I learned (and continue to learn) that it is okay to remove people from my life who drain me of positive energy.  I am the only person who is responsible in how I want to feel and if I don’t want negative energy to mesh with the positive energy that I try to create – I remove myself from where the negative energy is coming from.  It is sometimes hard, as some of the people that surround themselves with such negativity could be friends or family.  In my experience – whenever I have decided to not involve myself with friends or family that have a negative demeanor, it always enriched my life. 

We all recognize the difference between someone who is negative all the time and someone who is just going through a tough period in their lives.  The person who is always negative is a constant complainer, isn’t very pleasant or happy, may have low self esteem and (as I have said before) is always involved in the lives of others rather than looking at their own.  It’s okay to continue to provide advice and guidance to those who are going through a potential ‘dark period’ in their lives because you recognize that as a temporary incident.

Here are some things you can do to ensure you don’t invite negativity into your life:

  • stop watching the news or violent television programming
  • don’t gossip and listen to gossip
  • don’t judge others
  • affirm each day “I am surrounded by loving and happy people and fill my day with laughter and joy”
  • when something negative does happen – recognize it and say “this is temporary and I have learned……I recognize this and bless it with love”
  • meditate
  • show gratitude for all that is around you
  • be kind to yourself and love yourself

Remember – we only attract what we want into our lives…if you want hurt, pain, suffering, poverty, etc….that is all that you will attract.  Instead think about love, prosperity, happiness, good health, laughter and joy and that is all that you will attract.  Whatever you ask of Source/The Universe/God is what it will provide.

Be kind to one another, live from love, compassion and without judgement and…….

Together we can make the world a more positive one!

ECKHART TOLLE on FORGIVENESS

Eckhart Tolle is a perfect example of someone who is living in THE NOW…..he is attentive and I love that he really thinks about his words prior to just speaking out and answering his audience.  Listen to this brief but important lesson on forgiveness.

AMAZING and HEARTFELT VIDEO – COWS SET FREE FOR THE FIRST TIME

The video is in German – but no words can express the joy these cows feel once released from their confinement.  Science has finally recognized that animals have consciousness but that is something that animals lovers already have known.  Animals have emotions – here is more proof:

I love that the people are so happy for this moment that they get choked up…..ASTOUNDING and WONDERFUL people!!!

Together we can make the world a more positive one!

LOVE IS THE ANSWER

Love is a topic and a feeling that we take for granted.  How many times do we say “I love you” in one day?  Many – and most of the time you don’t even know why you are saying it – you just are.  Love is complex – love stirs so many emotions in us; fear, anger, joy, happiness, sadness. The majority of songs we hear are about love….If you turned on the radio right now, or started playing any of your music devices – the song you would turn on would be about love, directly or indirectly.  We have heard the sayings; All you need is love, love makes the world go round, love is all you need, etc…..They are all true but the most important thing you need to do regarding LOVE – is to learn to love yourself.  Once you learn to love yourself, it becomes much easier for you to love others.

Here are some valuable words from one of my favourite spiritual teachers of our time, Louise L. Hay

You can purchase any of Louise’s books, audio books, affirmations, cd’s, etc., by visiting Hay House http://www.hayhouse.com

Isn’t it time you learn to love yourself, so that you can help spread love into the world?

SOME REASONS I ADVOCATE FOR ANIMALS (and don’t eat meat).

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CARNIVORES (ANIMALS), HERBIVORES and HUMANS (and why carnivorous animals can eat other animals)

Meat-eaters: have claws

Herbivores: no claws

Humans: no claws

 

Meat-eaters: have no skin pores and perspire through the tongue

Herbivores: perspire through skin pores

Humans: perspire through skin pores

 

Meat-eaters: have sharp front teeth for tearing, with no flat molar teeth for grinding

Herbivores: no sharp front teeth, but flat rear molars for grinding

Humans: no sharp front teeth, but flat rear molars for grinding

 

Meat-eaters: have intestinal tract that is only 3 times their body length so that rapidly decaying meat can pass through quickly

Herbivores: have intestinal tract 10-12 times their body length.

Humans: have intestinal tract 10-12 times their body length.

 

Meat-eaters: have strong hydrochloric acid in stomach to digest meat

Herbivores: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater

Humans: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater

 

Meat-eaters: salivary glands in mouth not needed to pre-digest grains and fruits.

Herbivores: well-developed salivary glands which are necessary to pre-digest grains and fruits

Humans: well-developed salivary glands, which are necessary to pre-digest, grains and fruits

 

Meat-eaters: have acid saliva with no enzyme ptyalin to pre-digest grains

Herbivores: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains

Humans: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains

Here is a link to an article written by Mike Roizen, M.D. and a long time collaborator with Dr. Mehmed Oz.  The article suggests that there are more reasons, than otherwise known, to avoid red meat.  Here is the link:

 http://blog.doctoroz.com/in-the-news/more-reasons-to-avoid-red-meat

An article written for Huffington Post by Craig Cooper, Mens Health Advocate and founder of Cooperative Health and Prostate.net entitled:  Before Eating Red Meat, Think Twice and Live Longer cited a study that collected data from 83,644 women from the Nurses Health Study and 37,698 men from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study,  so investigators could determine the affect and how much meat each of these adults consumed over a 22-year to 28-year period.

The bottom line of the study? The more red meat you eat, the greater your risk of dying and of developing heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Here is the link to that article:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/craig-cooper/red-meat-health_b_1758346.html

For me, I choose not to eat reasons for the following reasons, excluding the above health reasons:

ENVIRONMENT

Inefficient use of agriculture. 70% of U.S. grain production is used to feed farm animals. The grains and soybeans fed to animals to produce the amount of meat consumed by the average American in one year could feed seven people for the same period.

Inefficient use of water.  It takes 2640 gallons of water to produce one pound of edible beef. The water used to raise animals for food is more than half the water used in the United States.

Inefficient use of energy.  Calories of fossil fuel needed to produce 1 calorie of protein in beef: 28.  Calories of fossil fuel needed to produce 1 calorie of protein in soybeans: 2.

Environmental Pollution.  Raising animals for food is the biggest polluter of our water and topsoil. Factory farm animal waste pollutes the ground and groundwater horribly.

Destruction of natural habitat.  It takes more land to raise animals for food than it does to produce the equivalent nutritional value by raising edible plants. Rain forests are being destroyed to make room for huge cattle ranches. Coyotes and other animals are poisoned and shot by western cattle ranchers who consider federal land to be their land for grazing.

ETHICAL REASONS

Animals on factory farms are over-crowded.  They spend their brief lives in crowded and ammonia-filled conditions, many of them so cramped that they can’t even turn around or spread a wing.

Animals on factory farms are tortured.  Within days of birth, for example, chickens have their beaks seared off with a hot blade. Animals are hung upside down and their throats are sliced open, often while they’re fully conscious.

Animals on factory farms are treated like machines.  They are pumped up with drugs, fed their own waste and forced to grow or produce as fast as possible. They are subjected to 24-hour artificial lighting while being crammed into tiny cages one on top of the other to make it easier to harvest.

Although I respect an individuals rights to choose to eat meat – I resent how many meat-eaters cite reasons such as;  humans have to eat meat for our health and then mock vegans and vegetarians for their lack of food choices.  This clearly demonstrates their lack of knowledge of what a vegan/vegetarian diet consists of.  I believe that many studies are pro-meat because they are funded by the meat industry and they also debunk the studies that clearly demonstrate that eating too much red meat is not healthy.

It is our responsibility to educate ourselves and not always believe what ‘THE INDUSTRY’ or ‘BIG CORPORATION’ feeds us because, ultimately, it is not in their best interest to advocate for our well-being, they only care about how they can profit.  Think about it – has Coca Cola ever admitted that their product(s) promote obesity and diabetes?  Has Wal-Mart ever stated that by opening one of their Superstore’s in a small town, local businesses suffer and even go bankrupt?  Do automobile companies talk about the impact CO2 emissions have on the environment?  Don’t even get me started on the lies our government and the agriculture industry has sold the public on MILK.  Government and BIG CORPORATION work together to keep the general public confused so that they can continue passing legislation that supports those BIG CORPORATION products that continue to brainwash  and enslave us.

We should always go through life asking questions and learning – why should we just believe what is being fed to us?  Should it not be our responsibility to be proactive in everything we do in our lives?  If we continue to be slaves to BIG CORPORATION and government, we will continue to lose more and more of our freedoms.  A great man said “be the change you want to see in the world” – The only way this can happen is if we empower ourselves to create the change we want to see happen. 

The facts, both environmental and health benefits, about eating meat are out there – all you have to do is READ IT.  The video evidence of the abuse animals go through is out there, all you have to do is SEE IT.  

Together we can make the world a more positive one.
