Do Affirmations and Gratitude Really Work? There’s Only One Way to Tell!

Call us the skeptical mystics. We like to see tangible proof. We spend our days working with subtle energies that most people can’t see. And, we are constantly pinching ourselves to make sure we’re not dreaming. So, to prove we’re not just loony, Doug and I are going to put our gratitude in writing for a month and share with you the tangible results of our quest.

It would Rock our Worlds to have you Join Us!

There’s plenty of proof that that the flow of life is dependent upon vibration. DNA changes as a result of vibrational communication and interpretation. I’ve done distance Reiki sessions where clients claim to have felt things moving inside their bodies at the exact time that I focus on flushing out tumors or repairing tissues. Then, I get calls about how pain has disappeared or allergies are simply gone.

Heart Math tells us that the vibration that comes from our hearts is the strongest one our bodies emit, and that it has the power to create much healing. The vibration of gratitude comes from our hearts. I noticed that when I create vision boards, desires manifest pretty quickly if I focus on my gratitude while pasting pics.

This is not enough proof for us. We have tons of faith that this all works. But we want to know more and share more with you. One of our favorite things to do with new clients is spend five minutes on gratitude, because when we do that — they nearly always see tangible results right after our session.

Our lives have been BLISSED for sure. We seem to get everything that we ask for. A rather silly example is how we get furniture for our new apartments. We have a manifestation routine that goes a little something like this: We look at our empty apartment and say out loud what we imagine in each spot. Then, we spend about 2 weeks collecting the exact same items from alleys and thrift stores. Nice things too. You’d never know that most of our apartments have been furnished for free. We visualized a free brown leather couch in Chicago that we hated to part with when we left. But, we gave it to a friend on the faith that we’d find a new one in Santa Monica. And, of course we did. Right in our own alley.

We are so grateful to be taken care of by the Universe like this. And, we feel it’s our responsibility to continuously share with you how easily vibrations can be changed to work out better for you. You can change the vibrations of guilt and worry into love and gratitude and experience life completely differently.

Today, there are some things that we want in our lives. And, I got the message that as I evolve as a healer my energy becomes more and more clear. I’ll only be really happy if I spend most of my time focussed on high vibrations like gratitude. So, we’re going to post our gratitude journals here for a month, and spill the beans on what we see happening in return.

As for those “things” that we want? We’re looking for more financial stability, and growth of our business. We would also like to take more classes to continue our alternative health education.

So, without further ado…

Earth Healing Affirmations: A Message About Our Food Supply

Any of you out there worried about Monsanto? This message just came to me, and I needed to share.

Monsanto represents one of the major threats to our safety and survival. Know that you are safe and thriving. Know that there is no real death. Know that you have the strength and power to not allow this kind of corruption of our health and planet. Know that you are supported. Let thoughts of what Monsanto is doing or might do to our food production float gracefully out of your mindspace.

Fill your heart with the relief of success that has already happened. Send out the vibration that you are safe here and that our food supply is healthy and safe.

Keep generating the feeling of peace within you until you totally vibrate BLISS.

I don’t believe in war. But, if there’s any way to “fight” these dangers — it’s to change our own vibration into one that doesn’t allow for them to harm us. We only need Monsanto as long as we don’t welcome and accept our own shadow parts. Once we can see that they can only keep us down as long as we are afraid –we will be free. I’m free now. Join me. Send this vibration out now.

Look for more of these channeled healing messages as we are ready to share all that we have in order to help our planet and all of her lovely parts (you and me) THRIVE. We’ve seen countless opportunities for EXPANSION this year amongst the so-called threats like HAARP, the FED and stuff we choose not to support. That stuff’s only as real as we allow it to be. Rock Your Gratitude and shout your BLISS from the rooftops, my loves!

Soul Mates and Psychic Attacks in Scorpio–

I’m no astrologer. But, I have a husband with 3 planets in Scorpio (we can talk more about that later), and I’m fully aware of how the planetary arrangements affect my daily life. Even if the Earth is flat as a pancake, something is going on in the sky that influences my thoughts and emotions. Scorpio, to me represents that dark feminine energy. The black water that so many are afraid to tread. And, she’s fierce. She calls out all your shadows and shit.  And, when she’s made up her mind that you’re to blame, there ain’t no holding back.   Read more

Making Positive Decisions and Inspiration from Ganesha

Ganesha at Halebeedu

Originally published in 2011, But oh how relevant it still is!

A late night visit from the 3-D Ganesha helped clear my air last night and remind me of my path. Ganesha, the remover of obstacles (according to Hindu culture) appeared to me as I looked up from my near-sleep, and he simply smiled. He’d never shown himself so clearly to me before, so of course — I rubbed my eyes to look again.  Read more

You Are Abundant inspirational Recording

Angel1You are abundant in your life. You are a being of energy that creates the story. Understand your cosmic abilities. A plant doesn’t send a check to the soil in order to grow each month. There is so much more to us than what the main-stream would have us believe.

Humans are designed with amazing capabilities. Everything in our bodies is directing us towards leading a Blissed Life. You have the ability to harness the power. The natural flow of life.

I have passed energy through my hands, and I have healed my friends pains with it. I know what we are. Even the most anti-esoteric person still has dreams or “gut instincts.” Have you ever thought of that? Even they get visions.

We, you, are designed this way. Intricately housing billions of cells, our bodies are planets themselves. We have glands that secrete visionary substances in order for us to see clearly through that third eye. It’s magical. Our bodies are on auto pilot. They don’t demand anything for it. They simply are. The more natural that you make yours the stronger your true light will shine.

FEEL IT

You are truly here for a reason. A purpose. You are designed to have all that you can imagine. Manifestation Reality. Vibe with your innate nature and ride the wave with your senses open to discovery.

We are here for you and you have the tools all around you to increase your awareness. Even what may seem like a bad situation is all entirely for your growth. The world wants you to succeed. Own it.

Manifestation Meditation: Get Back to Your Vortex

Are You in the Vortex?

Do you know what it feels like to need something so absolutely, that there’s no doubt you’ll get it? And, it shows up in your life almost instantaneously? Then, it begins to unravel in a way that constantly gives you what you need? Maybe you felt like you didn’t even have time to ask for this “thing.” You simply felt it. You vibrated with it and it was there. Well, my Love, that’s the vortex I’m talking about. Read more

How to Choose Your Reality in 5 Easy Steps

Ever get stuck at a spiritual fork in the road wondering which way to go? Well, for me, the truth is that all of my options usually promise something I desire, and they are all possible realities. As I imagine myself taking one option, I create that reality. Read more

New Class: Spirit Guides and Past Lives

We are all divinely guided by and connected to an abundant source of energy. In this class we will discover how that energy manifests itself for us as guides (Angels, Ancestors, Animals etc), and how this manifestation has evolved with our soul since the beginning.
Your spirit guides are extensions of yourself. How can they help you on this part of your life journey? What parts of your soul’s journey need to be re-collected in order to have the experiences that create your best life? The answers lie within you, and we will begin to dig them out together.

These classes are available for groups of 5 or more as part of our Bliss Tour. Contact us at Gina@BlissedLife.com to host a class in your space.

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 lists

Doug’s Gratitude List:

Little Mexican lizards
New insights
Gina’s striped socks
Dougie’s ravenous banana eating
Talking animals on YouTube
People laughing
Parties on the beach
The sound of the ocean
Family

Dougie’s List:
Dash
Money
Iron Man
Burn Man
Super Dougie

Gina’s List:
Messages from Dear Old Friends
Lots of Time
This Moment of Breeze and Bugs Chirping
Bright Ideas
Super Dougie and his Love
A husband that keeps making me laughing, while supporting me through more than I thought I could ever handle.
Peace

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!

Check out our whole Gratitude Journal Experiment here. We’re definitely not finished. well keep sharing as we go.

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.
