Flowdreaming (http://www.flowdreaming.com/): Summer McStravick offers the gift of her talent and flowdreaming in her website, app, and Podcasts. She has hundreds of Podcast shows and a growing library of flowdreams that we all can access and build the structures of our dreams in our minds with vivid imagination and emotion.

Monday, December 15, 2014 Shout Outs:

Sometimes inspiration and Law of Attraction education comes from the most unlikeliness of sources, such as Deep House Music. My earliest nudges into the divinity that is Deliberate Creation came from the music I listened to in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Shout outs go to two sublime deep house music albums that has been released this autumn – Miguel Migs, Dim Division and Blue Six’s Signs & Wonders. My fellow house heads know we’ve come home, spiritually, physically, and sensually when we’ve had a listen to these funky house base lines and melody on point…

Blue Six’s Beautiful Tomorrow and Miguel Migs Nude Temple 1 changed my life. I never listened to music the same way again after listening to these two albums in 2002. I have an active, imaginative mind, and I preferred to meditate to something more rapturous than tranquil. I found I could also dance all night to this music – trances and all.

Deep house music scratches a deep itch in the mind. The beats equally make you want to dance all night or chill while sipping on a chilled cocktail, in the clutches of a steamy, endless summer night. The rhythmic beat is meditative, the lyrics were mine to experience and relate to, and it was a music that felt like all my own. It’s not until you go to a show that one of these awesome producers DJ at, that you realize it’s not just you that’s in love with this music. These latest albums remind me why I am still in love with deep, soulful house music.

Freedom Consciousness: Part Two – Freedom In Your Affairs

To be able to speak your mind to whomever needs to hear your voice. To be free of relying on others for defining your self worth. To have peace in your relations with yourself and others.  To have an uncluttered mind, body, home and spirit. This is what having freedom in your affairs is all about.

A coworker was recently discouraged by being written up for her work performance. She felt like she was not a value to her team or the company. I told her to remember her power is in the Now. She could choose to give her power away to the thought that she wasn’t a valuable employee, or she could choose to know her own value and worth. She could take it a step further and know that she could learn from this write up on how to best improve her work. Or, she could choose to ignore it and set herself up on a path to losing her job. Her freedom to choose how to feel and respond is where her power lie. The power would not be found in her present circumstance.

Are you a sum of your boss’s assessments? Or something bigger and more expansive? Do not shortchange yourself and lump yourself into yesterday’s performance appraisals? Let your tomorrow be shaped with your good intentions today.

You let go of what others think. You let go of limiting negative beliefs. You stop resisting. And, that’s when the real growth and expansion takes shape in your life.

Janice Campbell of Receive Your Life Podcast http://www.unity.fm/program/ReceiveYourLife/ discussed how to reclaim the freedom in your life in a few of her recent radio shows. Her July 10, 2014 show, titled “Today Is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life” discussed how you have the freedom to redo each day and the freedom to choose the reality you desire. The July 17, 2014 show titled “Cleansing Your Consciousness While You Clear Your Clutter,” discussed how there is freedom in honoring your possessions by releasing when it’s time to let them go, and to use the items that still have purpose and presence in your life. Her most recent show on July 24, 2014, “The Ease and Effectiveness of Nonresistance,” is a must listen to. In her show’s write up, Janice offers, “Similar to river rafting, learning to work with the natural flow of the current allows us to leverage our power and effectiveness.”

Summer McStravick’s Podcast, Flowdreaming’s July 15, 2014 show, titled, “Your Emotional Endpoints” at the 5:40 mark, is a gift https://flowdreaming.com/video-radio.php. Summer provides a beautiful explanation on how to get to your desired emotional endpoint for anything you desire through your feelings. She effectively demonstrates how to get into an imaginative, super, manifesting state. One of Summer’s best Podcasts to date on how to experience freedom in creating the life you want – from receiving good news on a daily basis, to having your dream job.

Before long, freedom in your affairs becomes a way of life. Like my coworker, I was once in a vicious cycle of write ups. I began to envision and imagine what it would feel like to begin and end a job, on my own terms. I began to affirm my own worth, and cultivated my talents and abilities. Over time, I went from barely holding on to my job, to becoming an MVP.

Meditate on how you can experience more freedom in your life. What areas in your life are you already experiencing freedom? What are some areas in your life that needs to be set free?

Life is easier when we recognize who we are and why we are here – we are Divinity on Purpose. Your divine purpose is what you remember when circumstances cloud your view of life.

Six months ago, I listed the top 10 Podcast of New Thought and Law of Attraction https://abundantlifeinitiative.com/2014/01/02/top-10-podcasts-for-law-of-attraction-new-thought-and-life-enrichment/. I decided to shorten the list to the top six that’s on my iPod right now. These podcasts regularly enlighten us with great topics, ways to raise up our vibration and consciousness, and a couple of them meditate with us. Here’s my short list of life changing Podcasts to load up on your device:

  1. Think, Believe and Manifest show, Constance Arnold http://fulfillingyourpurpose.com/blog/tag/constance-arnold/
  2. Your Happiness Way, Lorane Gordon http://yourhappinessway.com/
  3. Everyday Attraction, Rae Zander http://everydayattraction.com/
  4. Receive Your Life, Janice Campbell http://www.receiveyourlife.com/
  5. Create Your Reality, Lynn Crocker http://lynncrockercoaching.com/

Summer McStravick always offers a “flowdream” where she guides us into a daydream to charge up our flow energy in different areas of our life. Lorane Gordon usually guides us into a short meditation towards the end of her show and I love every second of it. All of the above podcasts teach us how to live authentically happy and prosperous lives.

Janice Campbell’s Receive Your Life Podcast airs live on Thursdays at 9 AM Pacific Time on http://www.unity.fm/program/ReceiveYourLife/. If you subscribe on iTunes, the Podcasts will automatically post each week. Here is Janice’s website http://www.receiveyourlife.com/.

Another recommendation is Lorane Gordon’s Your Happiness Way Podcast/show featured on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/yourhappinessway. I like her show’s format. Lorane has knowledgeable guests discussing Law of Attraction and Manifestation topics, as callers call in to ask her and her guest questions. She’s honest and gives real tips for people to try. One caller called in and was discussing how specific her vision board for the goal of remarrying and why love was elusive to her. Lorane explained to her that a vision board may not be the best tool for this caller and gave tips that could work better for her – I love that! Not all modalities and tools in spirituality works the same for everyone. Lorane also ends each show with a guided meditation, which is a nice bonus for those of us who need it.

To hear Lorane’s Podcast I referenced, check out iTunes and search for the show December 20, 2013, show titled, “Success With Law of Attraction.”

The Happy Factor

Chances are, you’ve heard Pharrell Williams “Happy” song one, two, or 100 times and either love or hate the song. It seems an equal amount of people who love or loathe the song and I can’t help but wonder if it’s just more than the song being played over and over or if there’s an underlying consciousness that is driving some people to feel a certain way towards the entire subject of the condition called happiness.

Pharrell sat down on Oprah Prime on the OWN Network for an interview on Sunday, April 14, 2014. He was moved to tears over how his song had touched many people, and it gave me goose bumps. He loves what he does, making music that not only moves him, but moves others, too. He is a shining example of happiness.

Constance Arnold had author, Jonathan Robinson on her show, titled, “Finding Happiness” (iTunes air date Friday, April 11, 2014). Jonathan wrote “Find Happiness Now: 50 Shortcuts for Bringing More Love, Balance and Joy Into Your Life,” discussed ways to get happy in your individual life right now. He has researched the top methods for individuals finding happiness modalities. He suggest making a list of things you enjoy doing and then calculate how many hours are they spending each month on things they love and hate to do. By employing just a couple of minutes per day towards what and who we love will begin to shift us towards a higher level happy consciousness.

Happiness raises a person’s vibrational energy, and higher level feelings, such as love, feeling prosperous and abundance hangs out in higher vibrational energies. To be happy, is to be thankful and grateful for what you have now. When you can be happy in any circumstance and condition, you are more aligned and in a place of allowing more happy things to easily come your way.

Hanging out in lower vibrational energies, such as in envy, shame, guilt, defeat, rejection, and depression, makes it more difficult to be in a place of allowing things to unfold. When you’re depressed and busy trying to survive, you are likely not in a place of allowing. In low vibe frequencies, people tend to try and control what’s outside of them and feeling a sense of failure when they find that outside forces are out of their control and people are constantly letting them down. It becomes a vicious cycle of trying to dump more and more into feeling better from the outside in, instead of from the inside out.

When you’re happy, you don’t try to control things outside of you – you simply adjust your internal barometer to what you energetically need. Life is an ebb and flow of energies, and they are not defined as good or bad. Too much high flying energy can have you feeling breathless and unable to catch up with even the best of life and too low vibes can have you out of alignment as well.

Many people can’t stand happy songs or people they feel are too “chipper.” They liken these songs and people to being “fake.” Upbeat people genuinely feel happy and invest in cultivating more happiness into their lives. Cynics don’t wear their happiness outwardly and tend to cultivate more experiences solidifying that outward expressions of happiness are fake, while brooding and complaining is being “real.”

For those who don’t like the “Happy” song or understand why people do like it, I am curious as to why. If it is genuinely for taste reasons, I’d like to know that, too. But, I have a feeling it goes a lot deeper than a Top 40 hit being overplayed – I think it represents the belief many of us hold that no one can really be that happy. Well, Pharrell is showing us that we really can be that happy :-).

Think, Believe and Manifest Show hosted by Constance Arnold, podcast uploaded to iTunes on Friday, April 4, 2014

Constance’s guest, Simran Singh, author of Conversations with the Universe and Your Journey To Enlightenment offers wisdom on living in a fruitful, abundant world and how each of us is One with God. Simran reminds us that we should suspend our judgment on less desirable situations and then delight in the jewel that was hidden in the struggle. She is articulate, yet speaks plainly and when listening to her, it’s like listening to a channel of God – her words speak right to you.

Simran reminds us that we are connected to everything and what we see now in ourselves and in our lives is an out picturing of what we are thinking and holding onto.

Simran currently is on her 66 show Rebel Road tour, without a plan, all on faith and through the grace of God. The Rebel Road tour’s tagline is “One Mission . . . No Plan . . . To allow the organic unfolding and self-organizing structure of Nature.” Visit Simran’s webpage at http://www.simran-singh.com/. Constance does not disappoint with her deep, southern accent and on point questions.

Flowdreaming, hosted by Summer McStravick, titled “The Other End of the Rainbow,” podcast uploaded on Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Week after week, Summer’s been providing subjects/content to help us realize our true potential and power and last week’s podcast was no exception.

Summer discusses how we are always waiting for “the end of the rainbow” or for the next best thing that is supposed to come, giving our power (which is in the Now) away. She takes a look at supposed external life problems and how these reflect the issues we have with self-intimacy. Summer discusses how the more self-intimate a person is, the better it is when we manifest.

I also highly recommend Summer’s March 25,2014 titled “Wake Up Your Emotions (Emotional Rebirth) and March 19, 2014’s show, “How to Always Make the Right Decision.”

Design Your Life, hosted by Reverend Kevin Ross, titled, “Do What You Love 15 Minutes a Day to Get the Life of Your Dreams,” uploaded Wednesday, March 19, 2014

By dedicating 15 minutes each day towards and activity you love to do will lead you to the life you’ve dreamed about. 15 minutes is not a lot of time to devote to an activity you’re passionate about. You and your future is worth it. I heard this podcast and realized that I have some areas in my own life I could devote just fifteen minutes to each day.

One example of when I did set aside 15 minutes on something I’m passionate about was for my writing. I used to feel like I was tugged in so many directions and there was no time for writing. Now, I write every day and for longer than the few minutes I designated in the beginning of my writing journey. Even a change in jobs a couple of years ago allowed me much more time to writing.

This is a great podcast for inspiration on taking some steps to energize your dreams with small steps that will lead to big leaps.

Shout Outs:

Shout out to my blog readers and supporters for reading my blog and sharing it with others. I am so thankful and humbled by the showing of love and support in this great, big blogging community and I just want to pay it forward by continuing to provide service the best way I know how, which is writing.
