Okla-home

It’s been an interesting few weeks..

Life is just one constant reaction after another. A Domino effect reflected in our day to day experiences.

At the beginning of this week, several people felt the power of nature. Unfortunately, this was not Moore’s first experience with a tornado.

Life is so precious. Too precious to be doing anything but loving your life.

I’m thankful I had the opportunity to quit the j.o.b. and find a work from home position that I enjoy. Without this opportunity I wouldn’t have been able to have gone up to Oklahoma last week to take care of my mom.

It’s been over 4 years since I moved away from Oklahoma and being an only child, my mom has had a tough time without me. She’s always saying I need to take off some time and spend a week with her.

Well since I have this new gig, and she was going to have knee surgery, the dominos played out. I was able to spend last week, helping my mom around the house, making her food, etc. It was a great feeling knowing I could offer my time.

So Saturday night the storms started acting up. Our power went out shorty after watching tables and chairs spin around in the backyard. I used to not let tornado warnings bug me. But things are different now. I’m no longer depressed, and I love my life and cherish a lot more than I used to. So the point is, while the storms were acting crazy I was able to be there for my parents. Since we were all together without any power I decided to play an audiobook I have on my phone- “Power of positive thinking”.

It was a really peaceful- one of a kind moment.

My parents and I talked about positive thought after it finished and the lights came back on at the same time! More dominos..
I left the next day, and as most of you know, Monday a devastating tornado hit Moore Oklahoma.

I have an uncle who lives out there and luckily enough he’s Okay.

These things do get us thinking about the vulnerability of life.

I know I’m not alone. There’s something more to being on this planet than just eat sleep work. So many people wanna break free from that pattern. Why don’t they? Are they waiting for life to make the decision for them?? There’s no point in not living your life happily.

To wrap things up:
Yes, this self help experiment is worth it.

Laughter Yoga

This past Sunday was World Laughter Day! For a change on my personal self-help journey, I decided to dedicate this post to Laughter Yoga!

If you’re looking for a way to brighten your day, feel happier, and handle stressful situations better, then laughter yoga is your ticket!

Laughter yoga was founded in India by Dr. Madan Kataria. The major discovery of this practice is that fake laughter works just as well as real laughter in increasing your serotonin and dopamine levels. It’s a wonderful thing to try out and I highly recommend locating a certified laughter yoga instructor in your area.

So, if you’re wondering what it looks like, I made a mini video 😉

Until next time!

Mystery of Sex Transmutation

Chapter 10 from Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich is the Mystery of Sex Transmutation

What does that mean? Well.. I went with a video blog this week to address the topic.  It’s actually surprising that a book published in the 1930s would have a chapter dedicated to such a “taboo” topic.

Here’s a couple of quotes from this chapter:

..the scientific inventor, or “genius,” begins an invention by organizing and combining the known ideas or principles accumulated through experience, through the synthetic faculty (the reasoning faculty). If he finds this accumulated knowledge to be insufficient for the completion of his invention, he then draws upon the sources of knowledge available to him through his creative faculty. The method by which he does this varies with the individual, but this is the sum and substance of his procedure:
1. He stimulates his mind os that it vibrates on a higher-than-average plane, using one or more of the ten mind stimulants or some other stimulant of his choice.
2. He concentrates upon the known factors (the finished part) of his invention, and creates in his mind a perfect picture of unknown factors ( the unfinished part) of the invention. He holds this picture in mind until it has been taken over by the subconscious mind, then relaxes by clearing his mind of all through, and waits for his answer to “flash” into his mind.

-Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich

Just for a handy written reference, the 10 things that can stimulate higher thought vibrations are:

    The desire for sex expression.
    Love.
    A burning desire for fame, power, or financial gain.
    Music.
    Friendship between either those of the same sex or those of the opposite sex.
    A Master Mind alliance based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual or temporal advancement.
    Autosuggestion.
    Fear.
    Narcotics and alcohol.

Major take-aways from this chapter would be ..

HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY FOR CREATIVE GENIUS


And now- personal self-help update:

The property I had under contract a while ago didn’t close. Meaning, the deal fell through. However! I was able to secure a part time- work from home job that pays me enough to cover my bills, and give me the time I need to devote to financial freedom and spiritual growth.

I came across a picture today that aligns with spiritual growth:

Something that I struggled a lot with at my last job, was knowing I was lying to people 😦 They had us tip toe around topics with customers, but in the end I knew the answer they wanted but couldn’t tell them. Yes, lots of people work in jobs that bend their morals, but it’s all made up.

EVERYTHING IS MADE UP.

It is simple to be happy, and that’s what my goal. The self-imposed need to be at a job I disagreed with was made up. So I quit. Was it worth it? OH YEAHHHH.

Until next time!
Love life 😉
