What is it that determines our futures?
Why is it that some affirmations or visualizations work and some don’t?
What determines if someone will have a spontaneous healing?
The next moment will be determined by a close match to the present experience. If the visualization or imagining you are doing is profound enough to affect your entire energy imprint (a fully embodied, with every fiber of my being experience), the experiences that become your future will be a close match to that purposely created now.
This is why affirmations have a potential to work well. If they help us go into a state where our now moment is more to our liking, then our future moments will also be more to our liking.
If they don’t give us a with every fiber of my being experience but instead give us a partial experience that is closer to what we want, then our future moments will reflect just that. We will be closer to what we would like but not actually there yet.

Ruth Shilling, M.M., is interviewed by Maxine, the Modern Day Seer.

There is a 30-second AD FIRST
and it also takes a minute to boot up.
Sorry about that, but it cannot be avoided.
It was broadcast on blog talk radio.
Topics covered: Manifestation, Sympathetic Vibration, Entrainment and some of Ruth’s journey.
From the FATV studio in Fitchburg, Mass. June 2016.

The full 28-minute interview is at:
Although we may understand that thinking negative thoughts only brings us down even more, sometimes it can be difficult to change that. Afterall, trying to improve something takes effort, desire and will. If we are unhappy, it can seem impossible to shift to being more positive. So here is something that is not so hard to do, but can make a profound difference and bring relief.
I was reminded recently that there are both easy and difficult ways to accomplish things. A story my friend Jim told me about moving a large rock is a good illustration of how working with the universal energies can make things so much easier than just doing things on our own.
Jim was working at a retreat center whose mission was recording the teachings of the world’s elders. They wanted to get videos of these elders while they were still able to pass on their knowledge and wisdom. When the elders came to the center, workshops and opportunities to meet with them were also offered. Continue reading
A friend of mine recently was having trouble with her daughter-in-law. There were all kinds of accusations about my friend not helping enough, not doing things with the grandchildren, etc., none of which were actually true, and which were obviously excuses or ways to rationalize a deeper agenda. My friend was at her wit’s end about how to best handle this.
When we are emotionally mired in a situation ourselves it can be hard to get any nice, clear guidance about how to handle it. Our emotions can plug up the pathways through which good guidance would normally come to us. Continue reading

When things get messed up on a webpage we can click the REFRESH button. When an electronic device doesn’t work right we can do a RESET by shutting it down then restarting it, or taking out the batteries and then restarting.
But what about when our minds feel overloaded or our emotions are all tangled up or we’re just plain stressed out? Wouldn’t it be nice to do a reset or refresh? The following is a suggestion of how to do just that. Continue reading
Yesterday I spoke with a friend who was trying to decide when to retire. He had a bunch of conflicting feelings and was deadlocked within himself about what to do.
We discussed it for a while. When the conversation switched to what I was doing, I told him about the questions I had been working with (see March 28 post – “The Power of Inquiry”). The questions are for dealing with things that are bothering us – things we find upsetting, that bug us, etc.
2 Sets of Questions to help us see the truth more clearly
and enter the flow of well being.
The “That’s Better!” Process
Dealing with something upsetting that keeps coming up in our minds.
1) “If ____ sticks in my mind there is something valuable in it for me.”
If it were NOT something worthwhile, it would drift by and not be considered.
A reminder of this is good at the beginning. It sets the stage for the rest of the process.
2) “_____ is now in my life, so it is part of my life story.”
Whether I like it or not, this image/event/idea has now been included in the story of my life. I cannot pretend it away or erase it. It is now part of the script in my life’s drama. If I don’t accept this fact I will not be able to be in the truth.
3) Ask, “What does this image/event/idea have to offer me?”
List multiple possibilities of what this could offer – both helpful and unhelpful, no limits. Just let ideas come to mind without evaluating them.

This blog has been set up as a place to share insights, ideas, tools and thoughts I find useful in becoming more consciously aware of the ever-present flow of well being. “The Flow of Well Being” Facebook page has links to videos, webs and writings on this topic. This blog will be for longer posts.
Matthieu Ricard, a Tibetan monk, described it well in a Ted.com lecture. He spoke about how our emotions are like the waves, they rise and fall. When something good happens we are happy, but after a while that feeling fades.
If we go beneath the waves of the surface to the deep constancy which is ever-present below, we can experience the well being which is always here.
As we move into awareness of that underlying flow of well being, we exist more and more in a state which is steady and enduring. We can then ride the waves of emotion with more pleasure and make better choices along the way, too!
