Time to Thrive with Michele Howe

We had the pleasure of sharing an evening with Michele Howe.  She shared with us her journey as a survivor of throat and neck cancer and how this experience prompted her to turn inward and look more closely on the many ways she could heal–apart from modern medicine.

Michele dove into a mindfulness practice and highlighted some of the things that worked for her, as well as shared her programs and books which can help others on this path.

She walked us through what she calls “doorways” to thrive:

  • Posture:  Be aware of your posture.  Simply sitting up straight can change your mood/outlook.
  • Breathing:  Shallow breath is connected to anxiety.  Breathe in deeply and exhale loudly to release.
  • Step into Moon Flow:  Pay attention to the cycles of the moon.  These can provide optimal times for manifesting. (We have covered this at length in our group!)
  • Hoʻoponopono:  Hawaiian prayer linked to increased abundance.  I thank you.  I love you.  I forgive you.  I’m sorry.
  • Set “sacred” containers:  When you enter a space, say “I am here to…” and set your intentions before entering.  Tell yourself you are surrounded by positive light.

Becoming Aware of Our Vibration

Orelia Sophia, trained by Bob Proctor, learned at an early age about energy healing.  We discussed things that would make us happy and she said they usually land in one of three categories:

  1. To be free from financial concerns
  2. To be enthused about how we will spend a day
  3. We want to enjoy daily relationships with other people.

Napoleon Hill recommends writing out your goal and posting it everywhere so that you encounter it constantly.

She is offering 1:1 coaching for all who are interested.  Check out her website at www.inspiredaction.me

Evening with a Psychic Medium

Thank you, John Altieri, for sharing your journey and your gift with us!  What we learned from his teachings:

  • John explained his experiences working with paranormal activity in historic homes all over Long Island and beyond.
  • He recommended the text, Psychic Pathways.  All us have psychic abilities that are often untapped.  This text can help train us to bring them forth.  What we think is “intuition” is actually a psychic ability.
  • John had his first psychic experience while in the 5th grade, where he saw a custodian flip over on a lawn mower.  In moments, this actually happened, much to his surprise, right after he told his teacher the man had tipped over.
  • John reviews our 7 chakras and gave some helpful handouts.  He advised that if you meditate on a chakra for a few days in a row, you can clear it.  Then move to the next one.  He recommends envisioning the color associated with that chakra.
  • He recommends saying a prayer before helping someone, whether it is using your psychic abilities or simply showing up to work where you serve others.  Say, “God, please help me to choose the right words and do the best that I can to help this person.”
  • He said that “prayers are like antibiotics”–you can’t just say it once.  You have to use them more than once.
  • John did a quick read of the room and gave each participant a short reading in front of all of us.

John will return in the fall for another round!  If you are interested in a private reading, which he does via phone or in person, please call him at 631.422.4799

Using Crystals to Manifest

Welcome to all of our first-time attendees!!!!!!  Below is a synopsis of what was discussed, as well as some bonus videos and resources.

Opening Meditation

Using Crystals to Manifest Wealth

Wealth is the state of attaining material prosperity or money. Achieving a state of wealth often comes from hard work, new opportunities and positive outcomes. Use these crystals for wealth and money stones to aid in your ability in obtaining wealth.

Crystals for Manifesting Abundance

How a person can feel a crystal’s energy

  • Be open to the experience

  • Skepticism should be set aside!
  • Set aside any preconceived notions
  • Enter the experience with an attitude of curiosity and without telling yourself any stories about how this may or may not work.
  • Set aside expectations of outcome
  • Be in the moment as you work with a crystal
  • Start with a crystal that attracts you strongly
  • Everyone’s experience is unique. Start with any crystal you feel called to. It will do its job regardless

    Cleansing crystals

  • Leave them in moonlight: new moon or full moon are great times to do this.
  • Cleanse them in a bed of quartz: do this for 12 to 24 hours
  • Use sound: hold crystals within a crystal singing bowl
  • Use smoking sage: light a sage bundle or smudge stick and allow the smoke to drift over the crystals
  • Salt or water cleansing: check to make sure that the stone you have can withstand salt water before doing so.

    Video Overview of Crystals

Programming Crystals to Set Intentions

  • Make sure crystal is cleared

  • Hold it in your dominant hand.
  • Close your eyes and picture your intent. Say it in present tense (ex. “I am prosperous”)
  • Imagine your intent turning to light and traveling through your arm, into your hand, and into your crystal. Do this for 3 to 5 minutes.

Cord Cutting and Severing Energetic Ties

We began this workshop with a meditation to reset our chakras.  This is a great meditation to try, especially when reflecting on energetic ties.

Chakra Clearing Meditation

Cords are emotional strands of energy that form, regardless of time or space.

The first cord we created was with our mothers when we were conceived.

–The strongest cords are with those we have frequent contact with.

7 Signs that you have cords of attachment:

1.Can’t stop thinking about the other person

Even if months or years have passed, you still think about them

2.Imaginary arguments

Constantly revisiting past events

3.Relationship karmic loop

Feeling like you haven’t moved on

Stuck in the same relationship dynamic

4.They appear in your dreams

Reenacting old drama that leaves you rattled

5.You feel drained

Cords of attachment contain energy.  You deplete yourself by holding on.

6.You can’t forgive

7.Can’t get them out of your life

Practical Exercises to Cut Energetic Cordscord pic

Technique #1

Free-write about the following:

■Make a list of people you interact with daily.  Leave space between their names.

■Make a list of people you think about often, but may not necessarily see.

■Next to each name, write how you feel after interacting with them.

■For the people you don’t see often, what emotion comes to mind when you think of them?

1.Pick one person from your list, the one that you feel leaves you the most depleted.

2.Put one hand over your stomach area (solar plexus)—most negative cords are connected this way.

3.Set the firm intention to not allow any more energetic exchange on this level with the other person.

4.Move one of your hands with an up and down motion over your solar plexus.

5.Visualize “chopping” the cord and by doing so, you are breaking the flow of energy to the other person.

6.Repeat a firm intention to break this cord now, for good.

Technique #2

The basic steps to cord cutting: Focus on the person that you wish to clear your energetic and emotional ties with. Allow yourself to call up the emotions that you still feel for this person, there’s no need to squash anything, no one has to know anything about your experience…

1.Close your eyes and using your imagination, see the other person standing in front of you, a few feet away.

2.See a cord of energy connecting your bellybutton to their bellybutton or your sexual center to theirs and either using your hand or imagine a bright silver sword or pair of scissors, cut the cord and allow it to release.

3.You may want to use a swift and chopping motion three times.

4.See the cords releasing and your cord returning back to you and their cord returning back to them…

5.You may want to recall memories into your mind’s eye that still hold emotion or energy around this person and see the cords of this experience being cut and released or dissolved

Do this for every cord you want to cut.

Self-Image and Psycho-cybernetics with Gaia Orelia Sophie

Thank you to our outstanding presenter, Orelia Sophie!  Below is an excerpt from the email she sent all participants.  She will be returning on July 23rd for more insight into how we can make the law of attraction work for us!

I have attached the article written by Bob Proctor called, Decision, and the youtube video he created from that article.  Also You Were Born Rich, pdf ebook
I also strongly suggest you follow the advice that Bob Proctor told me, subscribe to 6 minutes to success.  It’s a wonderful program that will start your morning off with fantastic thoughts, exercises and positive intention for each day.  You can do a 2 week trial for just $1.
Have a look on our website:  InspiredAction.Me
for more information on everything I spoke about last night.
I would also like to offer everyone who came last night a free meeting to discuss how you can best alter your self-image to the image you choose.
Whatever the results are in your life, they are a result of your self-image, which is a composite of beliefs you hold about yourself, beliefs that were conditioned into you by your environment.  Whatever your self-image is, your subconscious WILL MANIFEST that image into reality.  You may drift away from that image a little (with some progress towards what you want), but as soon as the subconscious feels you moving too far away from its image of itself, it will sabotage any further “progress” and pull you back to where you “belong.”
The change you want, can only come and STAY when you change the image you hold of yourself in your subconscious mind.
You didn’t choose your paradigms.  You didn’t choose your beliefs or your self-image.  It was given to you by very well-intended people who were just doing the best they could… doing what they were conditioned to do.
You didn’t choose it, but IT IS UP TO YOU TO CHANGE IT.

I would like to invite all of you to have a look at InspiredAction.me

There you will find lots of free content and exercises for your further study.
