How to Quit Smoking

fresh-air

If you are a smoker who wants to quit for your New Year’s Resolution and you don’t know how to do it, here’s a hot tip:

Check out The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr.  It is the highest-selling book on quitting smoking worldwide.  I have not read the book, but I have heard that Carr’s techniques actually make quitting smoking easy.

Carr was a hundred-a-day chain smoker for thirty-three years until he had a light-bulb moment and quit for good.  Then he spent the rest of his life on a mission to spread his message with the world.  He wrote multiple best-selling books, opened up clinics, created DVD’s, CD’s and more.

Interestingly, his philosophy is based on removing FEAR, and it can be removed by the time you finish reading one of his books.

So, in case you hadn’t heard….

Visit the Allen Carr website here; read some celebrity testimonials here.

From the research I’ve done, it seems his methods don’t work as well for weight loss, alcohol or drug addictions, but for cigarettes (nicotine or cloves), he nailed it.

Goal Setting for 2013

It’s that time again!  New Year’s Resolutions are upon us.  Have you been thinking about all the terrific things you are going to accomplish in 2013, or are you the type that has decided making New Year’s Resolutions is a waste of time because you won’t stick to them anyway?

Me?  I’m a little of both.  I don’t know if I’ve ever stuck to a New Year’s Resolution, but with my Capricorn Soul, I MUST set goals and meet them.  It’s the Capricorn way.

In order to prepare myself for the New Year this year, I filled out a fancy worksheet on which I wrote down a thorough 2012 review, which included all my greatest achievements so that I could celebrate myself, along with plans for 2013 – all the things I want to learn and create, what I want to check off my bucket list, what relationships I want to develop, how I want to contribute, what kind of fun I want to have, etc.

It was too much.  By the time I finished making my lists, I could hardly read what I wrote down, and I didn’t really care to anyway.  I’ve become more of a ‘live in the moment’ type, and I know I’ll figure a lot of that out as I go.

Trying to keep track of a multitude of goals, let alone accomplish them, is stressful, and making too many goals is unrealistic.

I advise making a short list of goals (three to five things is enough), and also making sure that your goals are realistic.  Challenge yourself, but also set yourself up to succeed!

How Do You Know What Goals To Choose?

My guess is you want to manifest a future that your Soul is calling you to create.  I advise this too, of course, because it makes life easier and better.  If you don’t yet know what your Soul wants from you, you are going to have to ask It the question.

You can say, “Soul, what should my 2013 goals be?”

Sit with this question.  Meditate on it, dream on it, journal it, take a long walk and think it through.  When you come up with something that is Soul aligned, it will feel really good.  Light, not heavy.  Exciting and exhilarating.  Difficult and scary too, I’ll bet.

Getting really clear is so important.  Once you are clear about what you are aiming for, write it down.

Then be sure to ask your Soul to help you accomplish your goals.  You don’t want to have to do it all alone, do you?

Knowing vs. Doing

Coming up with your list of goals is easier than making them happen; I understand that.  My top goals for 2013 are seriously challenging and, as I’m sitting here staring at them in my notebook, I’m realizing what it’s going to take for me to accomplish them:  courage, hard work, discipline, transformation, commitment.

Those are big words.

The question I’m asking myself now is:  Am I up for it?

If you’re not up for taking actions to achieve your goals, then nothing will change.  That’s all.  You can always continue with life as you know it.

Personally, I want new experiences, so I have decided I am up for the challenge.

A symbol for Capricorn is a mountain goat climbing to the top of a mountain.  When I am working to achieve a goal, I think about that mountain goat.  It doesn’t fly up or run up to the top; it walks sure-footedly, step by step by step.

You have to break your goals into small, actionable steps.  The steps you are asking yourself to take have to be steps that you are able to take.  Your action steps are not your goals.  Your action steps help you achieve your goals.

For example, if you want to start an exercise routine and you have never done that before, your first action step might be to decide what kind of exercise you like.  This could be a tough decision for you, so you might give yourself a week to figure it out.  Write in your calendar for the first or second week of January, “Decide what kind of exercise I like.”

The next action step might be, “Decide where I’m going to exercise,” or, “Find a friend to take walks with,” or, “Locate a yoga studio.”

Writing your action steps down in your calendar, scheduling them in, is super helpful.

Every time you complete a step, you will feel a sense of accomplishment and it will create momentum.  These are good things!

You can also set up milestones, like, “Make it through a 20-minute walk on the first day,” or, “Walk for 20 minutes a day for one whole week.”

You will have to execute to stay on track.  As time goes by, you should have check-ins with yourself.  Look back at your original goal and ask yourself if you’re executing.  If you’re not, figure out what adjustments need to be made, what needs to happen in order to get things done.  Why are you off target?

Don’t beat yourself up if you’re off track, and do not give up.  Please!  Your next action step would be to figure out what is holding you back, and then resolve the issue.

In many cases it’s fear that’s holding you back, by the way.  It’s not laziness or being pathetic.  Learning how to break through fear is a seriously important step to take on the way to achieving many different goals.  The fear may be unconscious, and it will trick you, so just trust me on this.

Guilt and anger will mess with you, too.  They can all be dealt with.

Stay positive as you go.  When your mindset is optimistic and you believe you can accomplish your goals, you will be absolutely right.

P.S.  I love this list of quotes from lots of famous people who confirm what I just said!

It’s The End Of The World As We Know It

ccpixel.net

Some have feared that the world might end today because of the end of the Mayan calendar.  I think, at this point, we can all be pretty certain the world will continue tomorrow and thereafter.

So, then, why has there been so much fuss?  Numerous books have been written on the topic of the 2012 phenomenon, countless blog posts, even a sci-fi disaster film was made called 2012, and it earned $770 million.

A lot of people have been thinking a lot about this.  I just realized that I started thinking about it in 2009.

A few days ago, I happened to come across an old journal.  When I flipped open to a page that was written by me on April 28, 2009, I found that I’d written this:

  • I know the world is changing, and I know it’s starting now.  I know it because I’ve been watching.  I’m talking about esoteric changes that are happening on a spiritual level.
  • Mayans say 2012 heralds the end of a 26,000 year evolutionary cycle.  It is the end of the world as we know it, the start of a new Golden Age.
  • It’s where we see beyond the illusion of a society focused on materialism, social position and self interest.
  • We have a reconnection with nature – and – a realization of the intrinsic connection between all human beings.
  • The importance of music and its contribution to the profound reawakening of consciousness will arise all over the world.
  • We’ll question what others tell us and come to our own conclusions.

I don’t even know where I got all that, but it sounds good!  Quite frankly, I haven’t thought about this 2012 thing in quite awhile now.  Just this week I realized that December 21, 2012 was coming upon us today!

This morning I watched an excellent interview given by the one and only Marie Forleo.  If anything I’ve said has sparked your interest and you want to learn more, I highly suggest taking 20 minutes to watch her video.

Marie speaks with Ophi Edut, who is an astrologer like me, who bases her readings on North and South Nodes like me, and who speaks so conversantly and eloquently on this topic that I’m sure you will love hearing the interview.  They talk about the new energy that we’re going into 2013 with.

Today I look at this as more of an immersion into the New Age of Aquarius, which is the New Age I wrote about in my book.

Soul/Personality Integration is New Age.  It’s as New Age as it gets.  It’s what is coming in 2013 and beyond.  That and so much more.

Hallelujah!

That’s good news for the world and it’s good news for everyone in it.

“Sometimes I think of Resistance as a sort of evil twin to Santa Claus, who makes his rounds house-to-house, making sure that everything’s taken care of.  When he comes to a house that’s hooked on self-dramatization, his ruddy cheeks glow and he giddy-ups away behind his eight tiny reindeer.  He knows there’ll be no work done in that house.”

Thanks + Giving

This week is a holiday week in the US with Thanksgiving fast approaching.  I am thankful for a lot of things right now… including my loved ones, my readers, and the fact that, since I report to myself, I can decide to take a little time off when I want to.

I am enjoying the festivities this week, but I still wanted to give you something that I recently found to be both valuable and worthwhile.

Last Saturday night, at about one o’clock in the morning, I was feelin’ fiery, so I sat down and Googled, “#1 TED talk” on my laptop.  (TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, with recorded conferences plus an award-winning and popular ‘TED Talks’ video site.)

The first thing in my search results list that caught my eye was Brené Brown’s speech about “the power of vulnerability.”

Since “brown” is my color, I clicked on the video and watched her speak.  It turns out she has the eighth most watched TED Talk to date, with over 6 million views.

Brené is a researcher storyteller who is speaking my language, and I recommend you take 20 minutes to view her message below.

I also came across the list of the 20 most watched TED Talks to date, and I checked out quite a few of them, actually (it was just that kind of night).  Jill Bolte Taylor’s “stroke of insight” (which is the second most viewed TED talk, with over 11 million views) was incredibly moving.  I bet you could find plenty more on the list that would appeal to you.

Take a break this week.  It’s Mercury Retrograde anyway.  Give yourself some time to receive.  Enjoy a few videos.

How to Boost Your Brainpower

Image by mimitalks

Gathering and sharing information is a big part of my Soul Mission.  I am knee deep in learning this week and I am super excited to share.  I have immersed myself in a free online event called Brainpower For Success Summit, which started on Monday and continues throughout the week.

The summit is hosted by Jim Kwik of SuperheroYou, and the purpose is to teach people how to boost their brainpower.  This kind of training speaks right to my Saturn in Gemini and North Node in the Third House.  I am all over it!

Twelve experts are participating in the summit.  Today I will give you some highlights from the first talk I heard.  If you want to check out the summit for yourself, click here.

At the start, Jim shared what I found to be some really uplifting news:  Your brainpower can be improved.  It’s not static.  Your focus, memory, ability to read faster, creativity, thinking, and imagination are all skills.  They’re not just what you’re born with; you can actually learn to be smarter.  How cool is that!

Jim then had a fascinating conversation with Michael Gelb, bestselling author of How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci, and Michael also expressed that brainpower is designed to improve with use.  It doesn’t have to decline with age.  If you work at it, your brain will get better and better, no matter how young or old you are.

Michael shared some key ideas for improving your brain function, which are covered thoroughly in his book.  I took copious notes, and here’s a rough version of what I learned.

Curiosity – Young children absorb information like sponges because they are so curious.  Everything is new to them and they want to soak it up.  In order for us to absorb information the way they do, we have to reawaken and maintain a level of passionate curiosity throughout our lives.

Having a sense of purpose drives your curiosity.  If you are motivated to do something, that purpose will help you leverage your potential and impel you to be more curious.  German philosopher Nietzsche is quoted as saying, “To forget one’s purpose is the commonest form of stupidity.”  A sense of purpose brings out whatever talent you have that you don’t know you have.

→Keeping a notebook to record your crazy ideas, free-flowing thoughts and doodles is wise.  Michael mentioned that Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, and many other great minds practice this habit.  (I happen to know that Eminem does this too.)  There is power in writing things down.

Think for yourself, demonstrate things in your own experience, become an original thinker.  Learn to discipline yourself with any important idea by considering multiple perspectives.  Become a critical thinker.  Look for information and opinions that are different than your own.  Challenge your ideas.  Seek different opinions and listen with an open mind.  You can’t say you’ve really thought about something unless you’ve considered something different than what you believe.

The more ‘senior’ in business someone becomes, the more important it is for them to seek different perspectives.  Don’t become a ‘yes man/woman.’  An expert has more perspective.

Sharpen your senses.  Consciously be aware of/attuned to exquisite beauty and make it a part of your everyday life.  There is a relationship between beauty and creativity.  However you can, surround yourself with expressions of whatever you consider to be the highest form of beauty.  It nurtures and informs your Soul and deepens your appreciation for the creative aspects of your life.  Fresh flowers, music, picturesque views deepen your sensitivity and your enjoyment of life.  Put more dolce in your vita.  Comparative appreciation is also valuable.  Try different types of music, art, chocolate, wine, etc.  Compare and contrast; talk about it with your friends.  We remember better when we have something to compare.

Embrace the unknown, the hazy and mysterious.  This is a principal of genius, it’s a practice, and it takes some discipline.  You’re not the first person who has felt ambiguity/lack of clarity/uncertainty.  Being in the depths of uncertainty is an inevitable part of any creative breakthrough.  If you’re really going to come up with something new, it means you’re going to be abandoning the familiar and the certain.  That doesn’t just happen instantaneously.  You have to cultivate Confusion Endurance if you’re going to take on big challenges.  Something new means change, uncertainty, possible confusion.  Sometimes it makes sense to be non-linear.  The one thing we can be certain of is that there will be uncertainty.

Balance art and science, logic and imagination.  Use both sides of your brain.  Do that by learning mind mapping, which helps you generate more ideas in less time, make connections you wouldn’t otherwise make, and access more of your brain by creative doodling, color and imagery - while honing the analytical part of the brain in choosing and printing key words.

Balance the body and the mind – learn to preserve one’s own health.  Our life choices make the biggest difference to our wellness.  Eat a healthy, wholesome diet, savor every meal, drink a little red wine in moderation (that was Da Vinci’s advice!), get regular exercise.

→Remember the importance of sleeping on a problem.  If you try to solve everything with your immediate, cognitive thought process, it’s a strain.  Your stress keeps you from being your most creative.  The creativity comes when you use your brain as hard as you can, and then surrender – let go, take a break and sleep on it.  You can rely on the incubation phase of the creative process.  It doesn’t work if you haven’t been working intensively on an issue.  The connections, the a-ha’s come to you at 4am or when you’re in the shower, when you’re relaxed, not afraid of embarrassment, when your brain shifts out of active beta waves into slower, more harmonious alpha or theta waves.

Then you have to write it down in your notebook and link it back to your active, cognitive, analytical brain so you can actually do something about it!  Creativity is not just going off in the imagination – it’s got to be translated into something really practical.  A balance between the relaxed and easy, and the focused, disciplined, critical mind is optimal.

Take breaks, quit while you’re ahead, move your body, don’t burn out, play is not frivolous.  We are most nearly ourselves when we achieve the seriousness of the child at play.  Da Vinci said, “Men of genius sometimes work best when they work least.”  Play is our birthright; we’ve just forgotten how to allow it to happen.

Playing chess or bridge will help prevent dementia, as will learning a new language, a musical instrument, juggling.  Learn something new for 15 minutes a day – the more challenging, the better.  The worse you are at it, the more awkward and difficult it feels, the greater the benefits are for your brain.  Doing something that stretches your capacity is the most valuable thing you can do to recruit new parts of your brain and improve your brain as you get older.  As a child, you are told to learn new things.  As an adult, you don’t have to do anything potentially embarrassing.  The bad news is, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut and not do anything new.  Iron rusts from disuse, and thus it is with the human mind.  Keep it active, just like you would to build any muscle.  Use it or it goes dormant.  You do not lose it – you can revitalize and awaken it at any age.  You need that challenge and that fun.  With challenge, you have change, and that’s how you awaken all those new connections in the brain.

Geniuses are people who are more connected to the greater mind, who know how to have access to it.  Pay attention to the subtle nuances of your intuition to get access to your greater mind.

Reading is so important – if someone has decades of experience and you can download it in a few days, that’s remarkable.  Learn to speed read!  (That’s Jim Kwik’s area.)

I love all this advice and I couldn’t agree with it more.  I am happy that I have many of these practices in place, yet the reminders to reinforce them are stirring and inspirational.

I do know I want to add one of these suggestions, in particular, to my collection.  Next up, I’m listening to Jim Kwik’s talk so I can learn how to speed read.

What do you want to do?  Pick something, and then act on it!

Hallows

Today is a big day.  No, I am not talking about Election Day; I am talking about Hallows.  Hallows occurs once a year when the Sun reaches mid-point in Scorpio.  It is known to be a time when the veil is the thinnest between our world and The Other Side.

I am getting ready to release Chapter 10 of my book, which is called The Other Side, and I wanted to reveal an excerpt today in order to share the information in it about Hallows.

Read below if interested.  Following the excerpt, I will tell you what you can do with the information.

********************************

Kim:  What is The Other Side?

Linda:  I’m sure there are a lot of people who wouldn’t agree with me, but what I believe to be true is that The Other Side is another dimension of reality.  I think we start there before coming to the Earth, and we go back there when we pass away.  I see it as a higher vibrational level that is pure consciousness, which means that we are full consciousness there and we have a full experience of our Soul there.  The Native Americans say that this plane, the Earth, is a dream, and The Other Side is reality.  To me, The Other Side is a reality that is as important as this reality and, for me, The Other Side is my home.  This reality, the Earth reality, is where I come.

It’s all a mystery, but it’s also a mystery that we can absolutely understand if we really want to.  My husband, Michael, and I have guided people through the veil to The Other Side by trance meditation, through the unconscious mind, for years.  It’s not difficult to do, and the reason it’s not difficult to visit The Other Side is because every time we’ve incarnated is every time we’ve passed over.  I believe in reincarnation – we’ve discussed that in previous chapters.  Because we reincarnate time and time again, we have just as many experiences on The Other Side as we have experiences here on the Earth.  If I’ve lived 1,000 times, I’ve been on The Other Side 1,000 times, and I have memories of it in my subconscious.

Kim:  I know you’ve accessed The Other Side yourself, as well as helped others to experience it, on a particular day of the year called Hallows.  Can you tell me about Hallows?

Linda:  Hallows is the real origin of Halloween.  It’s a time of year when the Sun is at sixteen degrees Scorpio, which is a mid-point astrologically.  It usually occurs in the first week of November.  This mid-point has been celebrated by the Pagans for thousands of years.  The Christians turned it into Halloween on All Saints Eve.  According to the Pagans and astrologers, it’s a time when the veil between this reality and the other reality is at its thinnest, so it’s a time when we have opportunities to connect with other Souls who have gone before us, for us to be able to transport to and understand the experiences of The Other Side.  That is part of what Scorpio is about – understanding the mysteries of death.

Kim:  How do you get to The Other Side?

Linda:  You can go through the veil via the unconscious mind in a meditation.  We store memories in our unconscious mind about everything we’ve been through, and since we’ve been on The Other Side so many times before, we can go into our unconscious mind and retrieve those memories, or we can simply go through the veil.  I like going through the veil.  I like the energy.

Kim:  Do other people like it?

Linda:  Some people get nervous to go, but I assure them that they can always come back.  It’s such a wonderful place, and it’s so familiar when you get there, that it has not actually been scary for anyone.

I tell people a lot, “This is an opportunity for you to see and feel The Other Side, to get a really good idea of what The Other Side is.”  Michael and I have been doing this for so many years, and over the years we’ve had lots of people tell us that, for the first time in their life, they’re not afraid of death because they now know what The Other Side is about.  I think people fear death because they don’t know what The Other Side is, or if there even is another side.  Some people are afraid of annihilation – that after they die, there’s nothing.

Kim:  That would be terrifying.

Linda:  I think that’s what is the most terrifying to people.  I don’t believe that at all, though.  I believe that after we die, there’s everything.

Kim:  Me too.  So the reason you do Hallows is to help people have an understanding of what The Other Side is.  People can also meet with other Souls there, right?

Linda:  Absolutely.  If we want to talk to a loved one who’s passed over, it is a beautiful, perfect time for us to meet another Soul half way.  The Souls can come and be with us, and we can join with them simply to visit, talk, share and connect.  What’s wonderful, too, is that it is an opportunity to resolve things with others that didn’t end well.  I’ve seen some very powerful things happen with that – when people had lost someone while still in conflict, they were able to do a lot of work and reach resolution at this time.  It’s a cool experience.

There is currently a lot of Scorpio energy in the air with the Sun, North Node, and Saturn all in Scorpio.  I believe this will make Hallows extra potent.

I program my dreams almost every night, and last night I asked to dream on The Other Side.  I woke up extra early this morning with my head completely spinning.

Tonight I will be doing a guided meditation to cross the veil (oh yes, I will!).

Here’s what you can do:

First of all, remember that you are totally in control of this experience, so if anything weird comes up for you today, do not be scared.  There are some fledglings out there (I’ve come across them), but you have every right to say, “Stop.  Go away.  Leave me alone.  I don’t accept this,” or whatever.  You cannot be harmed by a discarnate entity!

With that said….

If you’re good at meditating and you want to try to get in touch with a Soul who has passed over, tonight would be the best time to give it a shot.

Alternatively, program a dream.  While you’re laying in bed, before you fall asleep, ask your Soul and the Soul of a loved one to allow for a visitation in your dream that you want to remember in the morning.

If you simply want to see what it’s like on The Other Side, ask for that.  You can say to your Soul, “I am open to seeing anything about The Other Side that would be for my best interest.  Can you please give me a glimpse?  Thank you.”

I would love to hear about your experiences.  Come back and let us know what happened in the comments section below.

From what I saw last night, it appears to be a world full of excitement.  I’m not saying I’m in a rush to get there or anything, but you know, it’s still nice to see that the best is yet to come.
