Creating My Day

– Dr. Joe Dispenza , Evolving Your Brain

"I wake up in the morning and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down and get to the point of where I'm actually intentionally creating my day. But here's the thing: When I create my day and out of nowhere little things happen that are so unexplainable, I know that they are the process or the result of my creation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net in my brain that I accept that that's possible. (This) gives me the power and the incentive to do it the next day.

"So if we're consciously designing our destiny, and if we're consciously from a spiritual standpoint throwing in with the idea that our thoughts can affect our reality or affect our life -- because reality equals life -- then I have this little pact that I have when I create my day. I say, 'I'm taking this time to create my day and I'm affecting the quantum field. Now if (it) is, in fact, that the Observer (of ALL life) is watching me the whole time that I'm doing this and there is a spiritual aspect to myself, then show me a sign today that you paid attention to any one of these things that I created. And bring them in a way that I won't expect, so I'm surprised at my ability to be able to experience these things. And make it so that I have no doubt that it's come from You. And so I live my life, in a sense, all day long thinking about being a genius or thinking about being the glory and the power of God or thinking about being unconditional love.  

"I'll use living as a genius, for example. And as I do that, during parts of the day, I'll have thoughts that are so amazing, that cause a chill in my physical body, that have come from nowhere. But then I remember that that thought has an associated energy that's produced an effect in my physical body. Now that's a subjective experience, but the truth is, is that I don't think that unless I was creating my day to have unlimited thought, that that thought would've come."

I offer this article by Dr. Joe Dispenza as the kind of simple, yet powerful, example of how you might begin to create new neuro nets in the brain to counter an old addiction. I believe it can help create and reveal the you that has been wanting to surface. It's empowering. Try it. Remember, it's only a template that can be altered to fit you. Practice it in earnest, with dedication and humility. It will begin to change you and open a door for creative thought. It's fun, too.

from Wonderful Ways to Love a Child by Judy Ford

Children are the merriment makers. With their miniature bodies they giggle and run and roll, they bounce and move all over the place. They wiggle when you hold them and they've got such exuberant energy that when they enter a room you notice. They like to touch and taste everything. And they can look you in the you in the eye with such charming honesty that for a second you don't know for sure what to do. There are so many things to be tickled about. Washing those sticky little fingers and soft little chins can bring a smile to any sourpuss.

Life is full of the ridiculous, and children have a knack for seeing it everywhere. Four-year-old Annie was the smartest little girl. An adult asked her on day, "Do you have a boyfriend?" She looked at him; ran to her mother's side, started laughing, and answered, "That's a funny question." Then she giggled some more. Mom giggled too because it was such a silly question.

Giggling starts as a ripple and may expand into a deep belly laugh. It's truly therapeutic, relaxing, and calming. With a little laughter you're free to enjoy the absurd. Kids are quick to laugh, and you don't have to be a comedian to entertain them. Little kids, especially, will laugh at just about anything–just give them an excuse. A sill face or an absurd comment can elicit shrieks of delight, especially coming from you.

Sandy took a van full of third graders to the park. While driving down the road, the kids laughed and waved at the passers-by. Some grouches ignored the kids, but other folds smiled, honked their horns, and waved too; and then the kids laughed louder. If a kid waves a you, wave back; itʼs a very easy way to spread a lot of happiness around.

Never squelch those giggles. If you find that you haven't felt giddy for a while, try talking gibberish or singing a nonsensical tune to break the ice; the reaction you get from your child will certainly keep the momentum going. And if you have really forgotten how to giggle, invite a team of thirteen-year-old girls to afternoon tea. That will surely get things going in the giggling direction.
