Gratitude Journal Experiment Days 23-30 — It’s Been a Month! Gratitude Journaling Results

20120526-073154.jpg

Time for some gratitude attitude! Yo DJ give me a fat beat to show some love to this awesome month. We have met new friends, learned new things, regressed and progressed. It’s been a month of deep understanding in what we do and who we are.

We spent time each day taking in our opportunities and blessings. We focused on healthy manifestation and worked towards happiness through self-fulfillment. If a scenario wasn’t for the greater good of making us smile, we found ways to turn it into something optimistic.

Dwelling will only bring more to dwell on. Like attracts like. Please take some time today to see the bright side of your life. We all have miraculous ability to make anything out of our future that we want. Fill yourself with hope and possibility. We make the change.

The Results:
It’s somewhat difficult to put into words the tremendous results we’ve seen through this month of consciously practicing gratitude. Here are some of the highlights:
*A new and improved sense of financial freedom and security (yeah, we know!)
*Double or even Triple the access we had to healthy foods
*Business and personal connections in our new town
*Lots of physical healing and and developmental strides for Dougie
*Ideas to carry us through the next part of our adventure
*Much more success and consistency in our home school project
*More Happy Clients and connections with the Right People
*Healing of Old Emotional Wounds
*Creative Release
*Physical Healing for all 3 of us (Especially a very eye-opening liver detox)
*The ability to much more quickly recoup ourselves after a difficult moment
*Being More productive and selective with our time
*Past-Life Memories and Healing
*Tremendous increase in Intuitive Abilities
*Support from friends far and wide

We didn’t ask for most of this, but inside we knew we needed it. The need to be properly rewarded for the work we do, helps us continue on this path. It would be the same for anyone, we think. But, sometimes we just don’t even know what to ask for. We were so distraught a month ago, and we thought that all we really needed was material. We thought we had a handle on the spiritual and emotional stuff. Yes, it’s our strong-suit, for sure. But, simply practicing gratitude everyday has made us see everything more clearly. We are, once again– amazed.

WE’RE SO INSPIRED THAT WE’VE DECIDED TO GET BACK ON OUR MISSION OF TRAVELING THE GLOBE AND BRINGING HEALING RIGHT TO YOUR DOORSTEP WITH THE PERFCT ECO-FRIENDLY RV. CHECK OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP US DO THAT AND RECEIVE FREE GIFTS AND DISCOUNTS IN RETURN!

2012 Earth Healing Affirmations: Laugh At Life

20120520-083141.jpg

Life is just funny and silly and exciting and awesome. We all run through this rat race seeking what we believe to be our true path. What’s great is that we are all correct in our pursuits, and to say that someone else’s moves aren’t wise is a lost notion. We all need to experience and grow from our decisions in our own way. Your neighbor quits his job because his manager wasn’t treating him right, and you might say that they were being irresponsible. Well, fuck that! None of us on this planet has a true grasp on what we are here doing. There is no way for it. No matter how solid someone might be in their beliefs or understandings, they can not know for positive what our reason for being here is.

I am a very spiritual person. I have been visited by spirit and I have communicated with entities that I never thought possible. I am not closed off to possibilities. I simply understand an undeniable fact, which is that there are too many possibilities to truth. Just like someone can not prove to me that they are not a figment of my imagination, I can not prove that I am not a figment of their imagination. Yes I wrote that correctly. It’s a simple statement with complex possibilities. We can not prove that our whole universe isn’t in some particle accelerator on a small planet in an infinitely larger universe somewhere.

People can speculate on big bang theories and creation myths, but it’s not possible to be a hundred percent correct about who we are, how we got here, or what we are supposed to be doing with this reality. Even for those, like me, that have heard irrefutable spirit communication, we can only have that momentous drive that houses our belief. It’s not conclusive. It is only OUR belief.

Life is up for speculation and exploration. I am not saying for anyone to deny the truths that they might have found in life. Truly, I am very for people seeking guidance and beliefs. What I am saying is that to hold a single idea through this life is to hold yourself down. Enjoy your life. Do the things that you want to do. Live the life that you want to live. Others might not agree with your choices, but that’s life. Live.

Today marks the alignment of the Earth, the Sun, and our central Sun in the Pleiades Constellation. It’s a time for new beginnings.

Gratitude Journal Experiment Days 17-22: Gratitude Journaling Results

20120514-193418.jpg

Wow! All of this thankful talk has really got me. I’m amazed. We’ve come full circle in so little time, all because we stopped stressing over what was bothering us and kept focus on what makes us happy.

Last month seems like a dream to me now. Back then I was whimpering over plumbing problems in the third world country we decided to visit on our Tour de Bliss– and now, I’m lounging in a comfy chair on a breezy roof-deck listening to the birds and roosters sing.

If we were setting out to improve anything, it would’ve been our financial situation and how that also relates to all of those material human stuffs that we need for balance such as our physical health and connection to our bodies, availability of healthy food, our home-front, and our business and work situation. When things seemed to get “bad” for us, it was always on the material front. Our spirits freaken shine like neon lights. We know we are on the right life path. But, there have been times when we’ve cheated ourselves out of full reward for our work. This left us tired, sick and often struggle-working for money.

We created the gratitude experiment to change that. Not knowing what we could possibly do differently, on the work front (as far as career changes etc), we decided to put extra faith in what we already do. We teach people about energy, love, gratitude and co-creation of Bliss.

So, we’ve given ourselves an extra heaping helping of our own medicine.

Here’s our Lists of the moment.


Doug’s Gratitude List
:
Green grass
Smiling dogs
Smoothies
Markets
Naps
Hugs
Yoga with Dougie
Hidden paths
Fresh food

Dougie’s Gratitude List:
Tinny the tin toy

Gina’s Gratitude List:
The voice of a soul sister
The sound of Kundalini Yoga chanting
Thoughtfulness of others
Swimming in the ocean
Taking the long way home
Feeling at home
Breakfast with friends
Amazing Clients

The Results:

Having done this each day for close to a month now has helped us measure some concrete results.

We have officially increased our readership, private client base and income, and still been able to spend less time online

We’ve greatly improved our homeschool/unschool program for Dougie and he seems to be learning in greater detail and with greater interest and involvement.

We have met countless amazing people in our new town and have been shown amazing generosity and hospitality. We have found everything we were looking for in a town that will provide us with healthy food, friends, support, stability, fun, conscious events and more.

Can you just tell that we’re happy? We’re satisfied! We will be teaching some classes and setting up shop here (with a few small trips to ruins etc) until we get our new Bliss Mobile. Looks like after 12 years, we’re in a place inside ourselves that fosters creativity and spirit enough for me to feel like I can continue writing a novel series I started so long ago. Gratitude seriously reminds me that that place has always been there, it’s just ever -growing. Now, I see it more clearly.

Gratitude Journal Experiment: Day 16- Gratitude Journaling Results

20120508-214424.jpg

Being grateful doesn’t mean that you are always smiling, or are always happy with your outcome. It’s about understanding your outcomes, and working towards finding the purpose in the guy behind you honking his horn like you’re deaf. There is always a reason for the way things happen and every experience is a chance for you to learn something new.

If a situation seems dire, then reflect on it and figure out what purpose it is teaching you. Find your bliss and gratitude in appreciating every moment, even if it doesn’t seem to be beneficial.

So, here’s the family list of the day.

Doug’s Gratitude List:
Mail
UFO videos
Fermented foods
Smoothies
The sound of the ocean
Scratches
Dougie’s eyes
Ceiling fans

Dougie’s Gratitude List:
Buzz lightyear
Goat racing
Cars collection talking toys
Route 66

Gina’s Gratitude List:
Doug
Opening my mind
Amazing clients
Kissing Dougie’s cheeks
Holding Dougie’s hand
Energy healing
Angels
Watching my Dougs loving each other

The Results
We have really been slowing down our days and finding more time to take care of ourselves. Life is great. Be grateful.

Gratitude Journal Experiment Days 12-15: Forget Manifestation! This is God at Work –Gratitude Journaling Results

 

20120507-214456.jpg

We’ve done it again. Surprised ourselves with how eternally good life can be when we slow down and smell the flowers. And the coffee.

I’ve always been happy. I just used to think that to be happy I had to have something to make me happy — you know, like a nice friend, a chocolate cake, a cuddly blanket, sweet kisses from a sweet dude…. Stuff like that.

And, even though 7 years ago, I learned that loving myself was an option thanks to a very dear friend who had herself just discovered the phenomenon — I continue to sink deeper into the depths of that pleasure.

We started this gratitude blog, so that we could train ourselves to live more in that heart vibration. We know that our hearts vibrate so much stronger than our minds that the frequency can even heal DNA. We know that when we really align our thoughts and actions with what’s right in our hearts, we often manifest amazing “things” and experiences. Naturally, we figured that journaling our experience would help us prove that gratitude does WORK. But we’re not new age mumbo-jumbo blowers. We don’t believe we have full control. We believe we are connected co-creators, and that just because we may desire a million dollars, we’re not going to manifest it by simply being super grateful. It’s certainly not impossible. It’s completely probable –if the million bucks is exactly what we need to fulfill our purpose.

It seems that by beginning with the things or concepts that make us happy in the moment, we discover the deeper sense of happiness within… Or, we in fact CREATE a deeper sense of happiness that isn’t reliant on stuff or experiences.

We’ve been able to manifest a great number of “things” thanks to our clear connection with spirit. We are absolutely always taken care of in the best ways. This has been the case for me even since I was a small child. If I need a quarter, I find a quarter. If I’m craving ice cream, someone hands me a cone. I truly never want painfully for what I don’t have. I’ve intuitively summoned help from people during the middle of the night, found free furniture that was shown to me in visions, known exactly where to travel, who to talk to… Stuff like that.

That said, we went through some tough piles of dung recently. As we move on our spiritual path, we’ve been challenged with connecting our own spirits and bodies. We’ve had some physical limitations that I’ll talk about in another post. Many things that seem real and concrete in the social, outside world like money, food, establishments, schools, politics and Rules about the “norm” have revealed their falseness to us. It is as if we are being spiritually led to not buy into them, yet we have to play the game a little for natural physical survival. Well, I got to meet my angry side again, and so did the fam…. So that was interesting. We’ve all had some mood swings.

But, we’ve remained grateful and realistic. When these feelings come up, we usually wind up laughing at them in a matter of minutes. But because we still had some remnants of those old paradigm rules for happiness, we’d stuffed down the less savory emotions. So, Doug allows me to get all angry, and I allow him to say “Fuck” and we give Dougie his space to cry. Then we all have a laugh.

I thank the Gratitude Experiment for allowing us all to slow down and make this release possible.

Here’s our lists for Today:

Dougie’s Gratitude List:
Mater!
Hudson
Woody
Buzz
Sally
Lightning McQueen
Flo
Luigi
Chick
Filmoore

Doug’s Gratitude List:
Forests
Porch swings
Swimming with fish
Fruit trees
Electric cars
The smell of coffee
Breakfast at night
Purpose

Gina’s Gratitude List:
Reading Doug’s writing
Spending the day with my gorgeous son
Wise animals
Portals, visions, and dreams
Understanding
Support from all over
Forgiveness (sending and receiving)
Fresh coconuts

The Results
So, let’s talk more about some concrete things that have happened for us in the last few days.
We took a jungle walk and discovered a swim-able beach haven that’s virtually secluded. It has a mediation hut built from palm trees, and the air is magnificently clean. This discovery came after me putting out the intention to help Dougie receive hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

The rest of the weekend flowed like a testimonial for “the Secret. I asked for a health food store in town, and suddenly a brand new one opened its doors. I asked for a kombucha scoby and was told that nobody here does that. Then, of course I met a woman who gave me… Not only a scoby and free bottle of home-made kombucha, but also some veggie culture starter. Wow! I thought… If I only had coconut kefir starter. Wouldn’t you know, she had some…. But she couldn’t give me any. So, I took a walk and met another woman who happened to be reading the Body Ecology book. Naturally, I calmed my enthusiasm, and in 2 minutes had her bringing me milk and water kefir grains, home made yogurt, coconut water kefir, and placing an order for Body Ecology starters and supplements. Now, it looks like I may soon be teaching a gut health class in Sayulita.

We like it so much here that we’ve stalled our plans for Ecuador a little. We were taking a walk talking about whether we should go to Ecuador at all, when we met Amy– someone who lived in Quito Ecuador for 6 months and highly recommends it. Sign?

Today, we were gifted with raw coconuts right from the tree too!

If you follow the stars, you know that Venus is in retrograde right now, which leaves many of us trying to filter out that which we don’t need in order to integrate the rest more harmoniously. We are doing lots of this here in Bliss Land. And we decided to spend less time online and more time living. I think this is going to make us even happier!

Check out our gratitude journal progression. And, hey — if you get inspired, join us and share too!
Yours in Bliss
Gina, Doug and Dougie

 

Gratitude Journal Experiment: Day 9- Gratitude Journaling Results

20120501-220633.jpg

We eased into the day. One minute of bliss at a time. Took a walk through the jungle and marveled at the plethora of wildlife and magical life that inhabit its majesty. What a world we live in. Overly descriptive, but true.

How often do we find the time to stop and enjoy all of the beauty that surrounds us? No matter what your situation has to offer, there are always sunrises and sunsets. Good people to line the path your day might take. Little surprises to remind you that this life is ever-changing and unexpected at its core. You never know what tomorrow will bring, so take in every moment like you mean it.

Doug’s Gratitude List:

Nature
Mistakes that make me laugh
Bees
Hugs

The Results

In the past day we have received new clients and found cool places to enjoy life. There has been more nature around us and a better sense of our surroundings. Answers have been coming to us in a calm and efficient manner, which has paid off positively. In the fateful words of Ice Cube “Got to say it was a good day.”

Check out our other Gratitude Journal posts and join us. We’d love to hear what your grateful for.

Gratitude Experiment Day 4: Holy Blisst! –Gratitude Journal Results

20120426-203314.jpg

It’s day 4 of our gratitude journaling experiment and Thank the Angels, we’ve hit some major breakthroughs. You see, we were really inspired to start this little project because we know we have the power to improve things for ourselves–but we were a little bummed.

We began our Bliss Tour with the intentions of living more sustainably, adventuring out into culturally rainbowlicious places, and having more time with Mama Earth. And, even though we made the decision to sell our first BlIss Mobile after she broke down in Amarillo, TX– our new plan to hit Central and South America via Mexico sounded very exciting and also a great way to save money for a new house on wheels.

Buhhhhhhhhhht, dang! It’s been tough to get healthy foods here in Mexico. Were living in our third city in 3 months, and last week we hit a low point. All were really wanted were some conscious local friends to chat conspiracy over green juice with, ya know?

All we really wanted was to be able to afford the extra dough it costs to eat healthier here.

All we really wanted was for our plumbing to quit exploding and for heaven’s sake— to have some real contact with nature (new post coming on our actual experiences in Mexico with pics).

So, 4 days ago we decided to put all of our eggs in the gratitude basket, so to speak, and quit our whining about what we don’t have. Clearly, the fresh green coconuts that I get every day outside my door can help me sustain a decent gratitude glow. Clearly there are plenty of good things about Mexico, even if it isn’t our dream destination.

I can’t wait longer to share the results, so here you go:

This morning, we were invited out to breakfast by a new friend, and introduced to a few local healers who just so happened to be part of a Quantum Healing Expo. I got a free biofeedback session that was really soothing. It was awesome to swap stories and talk about things we are interested in.

Then, you’ll never believe this. I’m not one for zoos really. But I love animals and crave time with them. I got to sit face to face with a tiger, and just enjoy his warm company. His name was Diego, and a tiny fence with holes separated us. I wanted to pet him, but I didn’t. It was nice to just relax with him. He had quite a healing effect on me. Then, the boys and I strolled back to our side of town and had a delicious vegetarian buffet, met more smiling people, and now we are sitting at a Spanish Tapas joint with live music– and Dougie just manifested a his favorite French song just by mentioning it to us. I’m linking the song here. We are so grateful for all of these new goodies in our lives. Here goes our individual lists.

Gratitude Experiment Day 3: Gratitude Journaling Results

20120425-155817.jpg

Hello Day 3 of our Gratitude Experiment. the Dougs and I are taking extra time to focus on and share our gratitude journals with you to see if we can come up with any tangible connections of goodness that can be attributed to these vibes.

Gratitude comes from our heart chakras, and geniuses continue to prove that our heart chakras emit the strongest vibration in our bodies. stringer than the ones emitted by our brains. And, since DNA can be morphed based on vibrational communication, well we believe that the heart vibe of gratitude has the humongous power of granting all of us all the great stuff that makes life more BLISSED.

We’ve already seen (since embracing this lifestyle years ago) that we can now handle the “hard times” with so much more ease, and the good times have become more abundant too.

Part of the reason we came here to Earth this time is to help show you just how simple it can be to understand the workings of vibration in your life. So, here’s our gratitude lists for today, and what we’ve noticed since yesterday.

Join us if you like. Share what you are grateful for and increase this vibration exponentially! If you’re inspired to send us your gratitude stories, we can publish those too.

Yesterday’s Results

We decided to take a really calm day yesterday. We talked about what we would do if all of our business goals had been met, and I said I would sleep for 10 days. So, in the spirit of not waiting to do what my body needs to do, I slept for about 10 hours. It was glorious. The Doug’s did homeschool and watched movies and when I awoke, we went out and grabbed some fresh food for dinner– coconuts, mangoes, bananas and rice and beans. Hey, when in Mexico… Right?

The most noticeable results for the Big Doug and me are our state of calm and increase of psychic connection. We both feel a lot more clear about our intuitions and are having amazing dreams. I’ll share some dreams in upcoming posts.

Our Business goals continue to grow like sprouting seedlings of Love. We are being read in so many countries daily and receiving the best compliments from our clients. We love what we do and are sure it’s the right choice for us. Were hoping that getting more in alignment wi the essence f who we are will help us in our jobs of spreading consciousness, and in effect make our jobs easier.

Oh what a beautiful ride!

Let us know of you want to share your own stories.

Love!

Gina and the Dougs

Keep up with each day’s results here!

PS. Today’s pic is inspired by the fact that today Dougie washed dishes while I sat on the bed and wrote. When I got up to see what an awesome job he did (all the dishes were clean), here was a pan full of crayons on the stove that he as planning to cook. The kid floats my boat!

Solstice Angels and New Bliss Skool and Bliss Healing Opportunities

20120321-133718.jpg

Hello Love Buckets!

It’s really spring now isn’t it? So, now I can officially tell you that I’ve been sportin’ short dresses and cool shades for MONTHS now– since our Tour has led us SOUTH to the sunshine.

We spent the past 6 weeks living in a palapa-roofed tree house with chickens and roosters squawking outside the un-windowed holes in the walls. It was hot and sunny outside, and the boys and I went cruising, parasailing, ocean-wading, sand castle building, rock climbing, horseback riding and lots of hugging, kissing, homeschooling and relaxing.

Now, we’re excited to take our show farther south for some pyramid adventures, cave trails, mining and more connecting with nature. All of this has been made possible because of our pact to remain true to our ideals and live the most sustainable life we can. We are able to Thrive by sharing the best of ourselves, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Life has shown us countless opportunities to either stand in our power and keep going on our path, or turn around and get swallowed In the muck. Wow! What a simply amazing existence!

So, we need to share more!
