Be Present In Conscious Awareness And Grow In Balance And Health

As the energies build in group consciousness it is easy to become aware of the energy fields within our awareness. I feel this most as I am between sleeping and waking in the morning. I start to scan through my body and just be consciously aware of the energies and how they are feeling.

I consciously check if I have a gentle smile on my face each morning. I feel a smile is very special, as it sets up one’s energy vibration for the day. As I become conscious of the smile and my awareness rests with it, I feel the energy start to build and get stronger. I use the gentle smile to allow my awareness to lightly be with the energy, since we know that what we put our attention on grows.

It is good to stay present in the Now – that is, to have all one’s conscious awareness focussed on a single thing like smiling. It creates the space and rests the active mind; you can either focus on your breathing or the energy of the gentle smile.

When I am present and aware in the Now, I do a self-check of the whole of my body. I check how the energy field of my body is feeling by checking that my Soul and Light Body are lining up with my physical, taking a few minutes for all these subtle energies to come into alignment after perhaps astral traveling in my sleep.

This is the time I choose for doing self-healing, using my soul Source energies and the body’s energy blueprint to make adjustments in the energies by visualizing the perfect image of how I would like my physical body to show up. When you work on a Soul level and on your Light Body, the changes you make are natural and help bring your body into balance to reflect your true nature.

This is like working at the level of the Font of Life, where Source energy is emerging into physical manifestation and condensing from light into the fine particles from which will build our atoms and molecules and all the grosser layers of the physical vessel which our spiritual Essence lives in. The vision we hold in our belief system has a profound effect on our physical vehicle.

While we are working with our Source energy, at this level of our body, the body is constantly being regenerated from within. We can choose to change our belief about aging and to visualize our physical self covered in fresh, soft, pliable skin full of life, health and vitality. We can consciously release tension wherever we feel it – asking muscles to relax, become whole and bathe in this elixir of life.

By consciously taking time to charge up our energies and align them with our Soul, we are naturally lining up our energies with the whole Universe. Therefore, when we get up and go into activity we will feel supported by the universe, and life will be a frictionless flow of synchronistic experiences.

While we have a gentle happy smile on our faces, we will see this reflected in all the people we meet and life will become that little bit easier and more natural.

So each morning after waking refreshed from your night’s sleep, take a few minutes to adjust and balance your energies using your awareness of the subtle spiritual Essence that is flowing through your body from the Font of Life, at the core of each of your cells. Breathe in this elixir of life and grow in balance and health each day.

Christmas Present Ideas for Girlfriends to Arouse Her Senses!

What to get your girlfriend for Christmas… that’s a million dollar question, isn’t it? You’ve been saying for months you want to treat her to the best Christmas pressie ever. But now it’s mid-December, and you’re still scratching your head.

One piece of advice, the below items do not make good Christmas presents for girlfriends:

  • A CD by your favourite artist so you can listen to it at her house
  • A gift voucher for a steak restaurant when you know she’s a vegetarian
  • A “how to lose weight” book
  • Acne pills (even if she really needs it)

So what’s the secret to selecting one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts for girlfriends? Quite simply, choose something that satisfies her five senses – taste, touch, smell, sight and sound.

Give a gift with a special “touch”

Keep her all snugly and warm this winter with fluffy slippers, cute gloves or a cosy scarf. Loads of retailers offer these snugly pressies in Christmassy-themed styles, emblazoned with reindeers, snowmen, penguins, santas and more. These make uber-cosy Christmas presents for girlfriends everywhere.

Tantalise her taste buds

Indulge your lovely lady with something scrumptious to munch on like chocolates, sweets or brownies. Or go the extra mile… Nowadays, you can get your hands on chocolate bars, delicious truffles, cakes, retro sweetie jars – the list goes on – featuring her name and your own special message on the packaging. You could even – yep, get you apron on – whip her up a batch of homemade cookies. Mmmmm.

See the sights…

Of course, you can snap up a pair of theatre tickets to see a cool show like Chicago, Blood Brothers or Phantom of the Opera. Or if she’s off on her travels, buy her a Lonely Planet book on the place she’s going to. But there is a very simple alternative. Two words: gift experience. Treat her eyes to unbelievable sights… Send her on a Champagne hot air balloon flight; let her enjoy an unrivalled view of London with a helicopter tour, or take a day’s tour at Windsor Castle.

Treat her to spot of “sound” therapy

Let’s face it, what woman doesn’t love a bit of music? Whether she’s into Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake or Madonna, there are loads of CDs up for grabs. Better yet, indulge her with two top price tickets to a theatre production, followed by a delicious meal for two at a top-notch restaurant. On a budget? Christmas present ideas for girlfriends don’t have to cost the earth. Create a compilation CD that’s full of all her “besties” and even some that remind her for you, or you of her…

The Most Important Components For Successful Negotiations

Change … A lot is currently being made of change … embrace change, love change, don’t be an enemy of change, dancing with change, I’ve got change in my pocket!

Enough with the change … Let’s consider going back to the basics … at least in the ever changing world of negotiation.

Let’s review what we have covered in the last several issues of Words of Mouth.

SPITTING IN YOUR SOUP: Watch out! Haggling too much, cutting corners, compromising integrity, violating ethical standards … it never pays. Long term relationships can be destroyed by short term thinking. Words of Mouth Issue No. 3 contains the complete text of this discussion.

SIX STEPS FOR NEGOTIATION PREPARATION: Getting ready to negotiate is probably more productive than mastering all the slick tricks. While a good working understanding of tactical negotiation is great – the strategic preparation process offers real leverage. Words of Mouth Issue No. 4 will walk you through the step-by-step process.

THE GENDER BLENDERS: How successful men and women mix-it-up in negotiation. We must not ignore the incredible differences in perspective and perception between men and women. Many well intentioned, well prepared negotiators shoot themselves in the foot by missing these vantage point differences. A review of this phenomenon is discussed in Words of Mouth Issue No. 2.

TACTICS: The nuts and bolts of give and take. Once a well prepared negotiator uses the creative solutions strategy detailed in my book Negotiate Like The Pros, tactics become important.

The Wince, the Red Herring, the Good-guy/Bad-guy, Limited Authority, Nibbling, and numerous other tactical gambits are illustrated and role-played in our Negotiate Like The Pros audio and video programs.

NEGOTIATE LIKE THE PROS: Eleven common mistakes inexperienced negotiators make – Sometimes it is important to know what not to do in a negotiating scenario. Amateur mistakes in negotiations are extremely costly. The eleven common mistakes amateur negotiators make and how to avoid these mistakes are detailed in Words of Mouth Issue No. 1.

THE LAST WORD: We at Negotiate Like The Pros are dedicated to educating business and legal professionals about the most productive strategies and tactics to improve bottom line results.

A Keynote Speech is a wonderful introduction to the strategy and tactics embodied in the Negotiate Like The Pros materials.

More in-depth training comes in one-half day, full day, and two day formats.

Our Negotiate Like The Pros four volume video program comes with facilitator’s guide and participant workbooks – This is an especially useful package for in-house training when budgets are tight.

Give us a call at 800-859-0888 (ask for George) if you would like to inquire about our keynote speeches, training programs, or audio/video products … You can even call us if you just want to get a copy of any of the past articles mentioned. It’s always a great idea to go back to the basics … And, you can keep the change.
