May 2017- Prosperity As a Way of Life

Welcome all of you to the May newsletter!


I felt that with Spring busting out and our days getting longer (as least here in the Northern Hemisphere), that this might be the time to focus on prosperity and abundance (in all areas of your life), and making your dreams a reality.

The only article in this edition is an article on prosperity written by me. Those familiar with my practice and my work know that underlying all my sessions are the beliefs of releasing and prosperity in order to have an abundantly full life. So, enjoy a few of my thoughts, suggestions and ideas. If nothing else, I hope I manage to encourage you all to focus a bit on your hopes, dreams and desires.

by Linda Simmon

"Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just money or things
Poverty is a way of living and thinking, and not just a lack of money or things
~ Eric Butterworth

Well, we’ve made it through Easter, Passover and tax season and perhaps many of you are evaluating and re-evaluating your financial situation. This is a great time to re-evaluate how we are living, thinking and dreaming. A good time to look at the limiting themes that may have repeated themselves in your life. A good time for new beginnings and the perfect time to decide that prosperity and abundance should be at the core of your life.

Live your dreamDo you really believe that you can create the financial life you want to live this year? Fall completely and deeply in love? Receive a big promotion or find your dream job? Or have you put a lid on your dreams, blocked your hopes and allowed yourself to become resigned to settling for less. One of the most pivotal steps in improving your life from the inside out is the ability to open your channels of desire and to clearly define what it is that you most want. For many people this is an uncomfortable process. But this process can be made much easier with something we call Smart Goals.

Smart Goals are:

S     Specific and simple
M     Measurable and meaningful to you
A      As if now, achievable and in all areas of life
R     Realistic and responsible
T     Timed in the present and moving toward what you want (rather than away from what         you don’t want.

With a Smart Goal, you can take something and literally put it into your future, breath life it and into your dreams so that you are virtually compelled to live them.

Understanding that obstacles will come up and that’s okay because you can and will deal with them. Picture yourself setting a very simple goal. Walking across a room to open a window. As you head toward the window, things come up, perhaps a piece of furniture is in your way or a pet might run across your path or someone might stop you to talk for a moment, or maybe the phone rings. That doesn’t stop you from reaching your goal, you make adjustments, go around the furniture, stop to talk, answer the phone, do whatever is needed but you keep the goal in view constantly making minor adjustments and you reach it.

I know this sounds very basic, and it is very basic. Those people who reach their goals keep adjusting their course until the goal is reached.

And think about this, stuff really does need to come up or else everything would become rather pointless. If there is no challenge then why would any of us ever strive for anything. If we could manifest everything instantly it would be a very boring and predictable world.

The real truth, the reality of this world we live in is that desire is the life force of energy streaming throughHope us. It is our desires that keep us alive and magnetic. People without strong desires slowly wither away, living only shadow lives of whom they were and who they were meant to be. The more we allow the energy of desire to flow through us, the more vibrant and alive we become, the more connected we feel, and life just gets better and better.

But that energy cannot flow through us when we are carrying around excess baggage and old negative emotions of anger, hurt, fear and guilt. You need to release these negatives emotions that stem from an early event or situation and you need to leave them behind. You need to burn them away. They aren’t something you need or want to take with you into your future.

As children we were free to play, pretend and let our imaginations soar. But, as we grew older, we were told to leave those dreams behind. We were told to grow up, stop playing games and to keep our focus on the real world, the world of “adults”. Limit your expectations to things that are realistically possible, keep them small and that way you won’t be disappointed.

As a result of being told this over and over or watching our parents, friends and lovers live this kind of life, many of us both consciously and subconsciously came to the conclusion that, in order to be an adult, have a reasonably happy life, and grow up, we are better off not wanting too much, repressing our imaginations and our fantasies, and most definitely we’d better not play. We became experts at repressing our desires and burying our dreams. We grew afraid of disappointment and embraced fear and limitation. But remember this: “If you do not think about the future, you cannot have one.” ~John Galsworthy

So, set those goals, dream those dreams, imagine, fantasize and allow desire to flow through every aspect of your life. The universe is listening and will respond if your motives are pure, your goals are clear and you trust and believe that it will.

Linda Simmon, C.Ht.

Health tips that seem to resonate with the article I’ve written above:

  • When you have a big decision to make, you may feel better if you let your unconscious mind point you in the right direction.
    Research shows that people are more likely to be satisfied with an important decision if unconscious thought helped lead the way. To engage your unconscious mind, try this. List the pros and cons for each choice you're deliberating and then go to bed. Your unconscious mind will go to work while you sleep -- and you may wake up with a fresh perspective.

  • Quarreling with your partner may put the brakes on your body's ability to heal quickly.
    In a study, researchers inflicted small blister wounds on couples and monitored them for 24 hours. The blisters of quarrelsome couples healed 40 percent more slowly than the blisters of more amiable pairs. Promote a peaceful partnership by practicing conflict resolution with your significant other and finding common ground whenever possible.

  • Use your mind to help your muscles go from stiff to supple the next time you're doing a full-body stretch.
    Put another way: pretend you're Gumby. Researchers have found that people who vividly imagine lengthening and moving their arms or legs find stretching easier to do. And that could lead to greater flexibility gains. So close your eyes and envision your muscles getting longer and looser whenever you stretch.

  • The way you view aging may affect how well you age.
    Older people who have more negative stereotypes about aging have greater hearing loss over time than people with more positive views on aging. Focus on the advantages of age and expect to be as healthy as you can.

  • Your brain doesn't know you're kidding.
    Random thoughts such as, "He gives me a pain “or “This job makes me sick" are viewed by the right brain as instructions. Think healthy thoughts!

  • Are you a hot head? A less hostile outlook may help keep your heart rhythms steady.
    Studies in men revealed that men who are generally hostile or often openly angry may have as much as a 30 percent greater risk of developing irregular heart rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is a risk factor for stroke.

  • Are you always losing your patience? Staying calmer may help keep your arteries young.
    Young adults who are prone to impatience appear to have a higher long-term risk of developing high blood pressure compared to their more patient peers. A tendency toward hostile feelings also was linked to a higher risk of high blood pressure down the road.

  • Maximize your brainpower with meditation.
    Meditation may stimulate the growth of brain tissue and reduce cognitive decline sometimes associated with aging. In a small study, people who meditated exhibited increased thickness in brain regions involved in attention and sensory perception compared to people of the same age who did not meditate. Take a few minutes every morning and evening to calm your mind and focus your thoughts. [Hypnosis is the fastest and easier way to do this, and it works quickly.]

  • A more carefree attitude may help keep your mind young.
    Chronic worry was linked to an increased risk of cognitive decline in a recent study. Obsessive worriers had more than double the risk of decline compared to their more carefree peers. Kick worries to the curb by writing them down in a journal or talking them out with people you love. Also, work on decisive plans of action for worries that won't go away.

  • Are you afraid to try new things? Diving in more often could mean living a longer life.
    There may be a link between a fear of novel situations and a shorter life span, according to research. Of course, shyness and vigilance have their time and place. But if you've nothing to fear but fear itself, take a leap of faith the next time you are presented with an opportunity to experience something new.

— and as usual, a few of my favorite quotes:

" I can alter my life by altering the attitude of my mind."
— Unknown

“Your life is what your thoughts make it.”
— Marcus Aurelius

Painful memories of the past may cloud and muddle your future. Embrace the art of
"Letting Go"

"You can't solve a problem
with the same kind of thinking
that created it."
— Albert Einstein

"Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there ar
vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans
that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automati
when the goal becomes an inner commitment."
— Dennis Waitley

We do not remember days, we remember moments..
— Casare Pavese

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out
how far one can go.”
— T. S. Eliot

“Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't.”
— Mark Twain

... a nd maybe my very favorite quote from all that I’ve listed here:

"I can't believe …impossible things," said Alice.
And the Queen replied, "I daresay you haven't
had much practice. Why sometimes I've believed as many as six
 impossible things before breakfast."
— Lewis Carroll
