Last night we were going to kick off Valentine’s weekend at an expensive downtown restaurant. But as the afternoon unfolded, I couldn’t help but have an uneasy feeling about it. Did I really want to get dressed up, fight the traffic, lay out $100 for a heavy meal and then get home tired and stuffed? It just didn’t appeal to me. So instead, I went with my instincts and decided to cancel the reservation.

A new farmer’s market just opened right down the street, so I checked it out for the first time. I picked up a fresh baguette, artichoke hearts, marinated mushrooms, brie, dill havarti, strawberries, blackberries, assorted nuts, dried salami, chocolate rugalah and a nice bottle of orange seltzer. I laid out a beautiful picnic in the living room and filled it with candles. My husband had given me a CD called Bossa Nova for Lovers, and on it went.

When he came to the door, I told him I canceled the dinner reservation. When he asked me if I felt OK, I said “Yes!” and ushered him into the house. He loved it. And so did I. The whole dinner picnic felt luxurious, simple and abundant. Then he did about the most generous thing a man could do… he actually watched Somewhere in Time with me. One of my all time favorite movies. I’ve got to hand it to him. He sat through the whole thing, God love him.

These were extremely thoughtful presents and I’m really going to enjoy them. Oh, and don’t forget the roses and truffles. What a beautiful way to start my day. I felt deeply rested and knew that our young son was having the time of his life at his grandparent’s.

And tonight, we had an actual dress-up date. We went to see the amazing performance troupe, Circus Oz. The acrobats, musicians, aerialists, etc. were stunning. It was inventive, funny, energetic and mesmerizing. And, of course, I love those Aussie accents! We left the theater in such a good frame of mind. Tomorrow, we will pick up our son and give him his very own valentine surprise… lollipops, trains, a frog and too many kisses to count.

I was inspired to start this blog after realizing that I had four books crowding my large bag which I was hauling everywhere: Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham by Jerry and Esther Hicks; You Can Heal Your Body by Louise Hay; Ask Your Guides by Sonia Choquette; and Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I felt as though I had stumbled into a realization that had been lingering in me for so long… there is no one way to go. Every person has the ability to cobble together a spiritual perspective that defines an entirely unique, one-of-a-kind journey. For me, it has come through books, CDs, formal spiritual traditions and group gatherings that gently and easily pry open new levels of experience and awareness. For example, as I began to immerse myself in the Teachings of Abraham, there were a few concepts that resonated with me so strongly, that it lifted by vibrational energy instantly and I felt compelled to dig deeper. Specifically, I loved the idea of having direct access to non-physical entities (guides, angels, spirits, whatever you feel comfortable calling them) that I had to find out more. I had always instinctively felt that I was blessed with unusually strong intuitive powers, but I never made the outward connection that this might have to do with guides, and not the strong internal dialogue I had always possessed. Concurrently, I was reading the classic thought=reality treatise, Think and Grow Rich, and felt confirmed that many of my natural business and career practices felt nicely in line with what the book was offering: a sincere, authentic, and passionate pursuit of discovering who you really are, and reaping the benefits of dissolving years of conditioned thinking that resulted only in restrictive beliefs and actions like “I don’t know how to do this, so I won’t” or “I’m not good enough to think about having this.” The social pressures certainly began in childhood, were reinforced in school, and solidified through the media and society at large. So it’s been quite a relief to know that the conditioning one experiences can be extingushed simply through your own thoughts.

This blog is called “Current Living” because on this physical journey, I believe it’s imperative that we do everything we can– moment by moment– to live with the current, not against it, as the Hicks say. That means, never buck the current of your own emotions. Do things that feel good. When you are experiencing a negative emotion– anger, fear, worry, resentment– you are cut off from your true self. But don’t worry. You can slowly climb up the ladder of emotions in an authentic and real way, that is not stressful or produces any self-judgement. You can let that go. Working little by little (in a way that makes you feel good) will remind you of the power that you inherently have to be yourself and, consequently, connect to the universal power of love, prosperity, abundance and joy. Your natural state is joy. I like remembering that. Let yourself be human, for that’s what you are at this point in time and space. Enjoy being human until your body departs this world. You will not be returning to universal consciousness, you already have access to this at every moment of every day. And when you acknowledge worry, fear, disease, stress, anger, hate, jealousy and any other negative emotion as signals that you are not being who you really are, you’ll experience the amazing power of living presently and being in control of where your thoughts will lead you.
