The Key to Better Decisions

decisionsMaking good decisions is a big part of being alive, and has an even bigger role for the self-employed. Wouldn’t you love to know that you can easily improve your decision making skills while also improving your health, reducing your stress, and having more fun?!?

Sounds amazing, right. It is!

Relax Into It

As I’ve written before, there is tremendous power in relaxing on a regular basis. Research is showing us that when we’re relaxed, we think clearer. Solutions come to us quicker when we’re not stressed. Our DNA relaxes, too, opening up access to receptors that allow us to heal our body. The list of  benefits goes on. Plus, we’re also a lot more fun to be around when we aren’t stressed out of our mind.

Decisions Come with Ease

Marc Allen is a successful composer and the multi-millionaire founder of publishing house, New World Library. (He originally founded Whatever Publishing with Shakti Gawain, which later became New World Library). In this wonderful 2011 interview with Lilou Mace, Marc candidly and humorously shares his personal journey to creating and sustaining his successful business.

If you haven’t watched this before, grab your favorite drink and enjoy this inspiring conversation. (Even if you have watched it before, it’s fun to watch each time.)

Marc has thrived the most when he made regular time for relaxation, with his attention on appreciation and his custom affirmations…and struggled when he forgot his practice. As a result, he’s learned to build some serious relaxation time into his business, beginning with his unique work schedule. Marc works Tuesday through Friday, after 1pm only, and part of Saturday. The rest of the time he reserves to ensure he has plenty of time to rest, relax, and watch clouds float by. His business flourishes when he makes time for this important practice.

His examples shows that you can start a great business with little money, and grow it successfully with ease. Here’s his favorite affirmation:

Power Couple: Appreciation + Relaxation

We all know how great it feels to relax, right? Turns out relaxing in one of the most powerful things that a Deliberate Creator Solopreneur can do to be in a vibration of allowing.

Last week, I listened to a fabulous call on Good Vibe University lead by Abigail Steidley. The subject of the call was BodyTalk, tapping into the wisdom of the body to induce relaxation which aids our other manifesting skills, including inspired action. Earlier today, I was reading Jeannette Maw’s blog post about relaxation and the human tendency to resist it.

By now, you know that I see appreciation as essential to creating a life you love. It turns out that combining appreciation with relaxation is a powerful formula for health and success! Science now has some compelling reasons why you will want to begin consciously combining appreciation with relaxation.

Gregg Braden talks about this in his wonderful DVD, The Science of Miracles. It is one you will want for your reference shelf!

Here are some highlights from this DVD:

  • Scientific experiments conducted by the U.S. military have shown that human DNA responds to our emotions in *real-time*, not bound by time/space, as would normally be expected.
  • The HeartMath Institute studies have shown that when humans are in a state of appreciation, love and compassion, our DNA *relaxes* by stretching out long. Relaxed DNA enhances our immune response, making us healthier and better able to cope with the stresses of life.
  • Conversely, the HeartMath Institute found that when humans are in anger, rage, hate, jealousy, DNA tightened up into a knot, essentially shutting down and depleting the immune response.
  • We have the power, on demand, to shift the shape of our DNA and therefore our immune response, simply by choosing to feel appreciation and love.
  • Many ancient civilizations knew this, and told us how to use it in our daily life. Why is western civilization only now learning about this? Twice in human history, western civilization lost this information, whereas the eastern civilizations retained the knowledge.

Add to this knowledge Dr. Maxwell Maltz’s discoveries documented in his ground-breaking book, PsychoCybernetics: Humans are more likely to receive inspiration and find viable solutions when their mind and body are in a state of relaxation. Furthermore, all of this contributes to our overall sense of well-being and happiness.

Now can you see why it’s so important to go for that walk in nature, and spend time with your beloved pet(s), and consciously choose to look for reasons to appreciate your current life experiences? Together, appreciation and relaxation are powerful partners in controlling your DNA, enhancing your immune system, managing stress, connecting with inspiration, finding solutions, managing stress, and contributing to happiness and a sense of well-being.

OK, now it’s time to share what you’ve been thinking as you read this article. Have you already been combining appreciation and relaxation? If not, what will you do today to start?

A Vibrational Adjustment: Intentional Resting

6840327_m_IntentionalResting_cat500wWhen I first began working, I remember hearing co-workers talk about getting off work and going to the local pub for some “attitude adjustment”. For some, imbibing migh be the only way they allow themselves to relax but there are healthier ways to experience adjustment. What if you could easily experience a vibrational adustment in just a matter of minutes, any time of the day, no matter where you are?
This is exactly what Intentional Resting http://www.intentionalresting.com/ can do for you. Colleague and Master LOA Coach, Jeannette Maw, introduced all of us at Good Vibe University to Intentional Resting with Dan Howard. The concept seems deceptively simple—until you try it for yourself! Otherwise, you might find it hard to believe that taking a moment to sit with an experience and rest into it has any effect at all.
But it does.
A very powerful one, at that!
Dan Howard explains how the oldest part of our brain is wired to respond to the bears and tigers, and in today’s world most of the threat comes in the form of imagined bears and emotional tigers. Our body doesn’t know the difference, so the adrenaline is constantly flowing, tiring us physically and emotionally.
Here’s a video of Dan explaining the Intentional Resting process. Watch this and consider how you can put this to use in your own life.

No matter what happens, I know the Earth is already in balance and All is Well. The Earth was created in well-being and it continues to be so, and I support it vibrationallly.

When I first began working almost 30 years ago, I remember hearing co-workers talk about getting off work and going to the local pub for some “attitude adjustment”. Of course, they meant having a few drinks. For some, imbibing might be the only way they allow themselves to relax but there are other ways to experience a mental, physical and vibrational adjustment.

What if you could easily experience a vibrational adjustment in just a matter of minutes, any time of the day, any where?

This is exactly what Intentional Resting can do for you. Colleague and Master LOA Coach, Jeannette Maw, introduced all of us at Good Vibe University to Intentional Resting with Dan Howard. (I’ve mentioned before that GVU is the best LOA party on the planet, and I’m not joking!) The concept of Intentional Resting seems deceptively simple until you try it for yourself! Otherwise, you might find it hard to believe that taking a moment to sit with an experience and rest into it has any effect at all.

But it does.

A very powerful one, at that! In fact, when I was listening to the *recording* Dan had done with Jeannette for Good Vibe University, I was literally feeling spine tingles and other physical sensations that confirmed the process was working for me. I left that recorded call feeling I had experienced a positive vibrational “adjustment”.

Dan Howard explains how the oldest part of our brain is wired to respond to the bears and tigers, and in today’s world most of the threat comes in the form of imagined bears and emotional tigers. Trouble is, our body doesn’t know the difference, so the adrenaline is constantly flowing, tiring us physically and emotionally. Without a way to regularly calm the bodymind, the cumulative tension and energy gets stuck in our body creating aches, pains, or worse: dis-ease.

Here’s a video of Dan explaining the Intentional Resting process. Watch this and consider how you can put this to use in your own life.

And, if you have been feeling helpless and upset about the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, you might enjoy listening to this Intentional Resting call for the Earth.

For me, no matter what happens, I know the Earth is already in balance and All is Well. Feeding experiences with fear, lack, worry, or negative energy does not support the experience shifting toward the positive. The Earth was created in well-being and it continues to be, and so I make a conscious decision to support it vibrationally with positive energy. Intentional Resting for the Earth is a great way to release your own anxieties and shift toward feeling you are helping, rather than contributing to the problem.

Is it time for you to experience a vibrational adjustment? Let me know what you think of Intentional Resting and how do you experience it…by sharing your comments below.
