Energy flows from our conscious mind to our subconscious mind. If this energy is blocked it affects us physically, mentally and spiritually. This causes our power to dimish. This video will explain three ways to lift your vibration and then let the manifestation begin.

How to Direct Your Thoughts

By: Gloria Marie

Featured Video Play Icon

The high school shooting in Parkland was heartbreaking for many people. The high school is located about five miles from my home. Though all the horrible shootings make me sad, this one, that was in my backyard traumatized me the most. The streets and restaurants in Parkland are eerily empty. The gym I go to in Parkland likewise has been empty all week. As I am on the treadmill, watching the television, it is surreal to see the candlelight vigil that was held just a few blocks away. While at the gym, I wondered how many of the members were personally affected by this tragedy. How many parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, or neighbors are in mourning? Their lives never to be the same.

This week, it was hard for me to focus and hard to stay positive. I felt my energy low and negative. It was a struggle this week to remain in any routine. Of course, I prayed, light candles and meditated and that is what provided relief. From all my work, I know that by raising my energy and vibration, it will help others. I wish I could bring back all seventeen that died or wish I could take the pain away from the families, but, I cannot. What I can do is keep my thread to God alive.

This video was recorded before the shooting, but, the tool described will help you deal with tragedy. It will help you stay focused in the present moment. The goal is to direct your thoughts instead of just “thinking.” When our thoughts wonder they usually go to past regrets or worries about the future. Let’s all try to stay present and send healing love, prayers and light to the Parkland community.

When we are mindful in the present moment, we can think more clearly, and maybe we can decide, what can we do to prevent further tragedies?

Fantastic Photography Book

By: Gloria Marie

zen camera, gloria pierson, gloria marie pierson

“Zen Camera” is a fantastic photography book for the novice and the experienced photographer. The author, David Ulrich, utilizes principles of Zen practice and incorporates them into the photography lessons. This book will not only teach you creative ways to take photographs but, will also help you develop a mindfulness practice to allow you to stay in the present moment and build your creative instincts.

Zen Camera has six lessons: Observation, Awareness, Identity, Practice, Mastery, and Presence. From these chapter titles, you can tell that this is not your ordinary, dull, technical guidebook. This fresh approach will appeal to many people because it is not overly technical. You will learn to develop your style. Each lesson is followed by several exercises to “Try,” and they will reinforce the concepts explained in the lessons.

The author does not recommend an expensive camera or equipment to begin; a cell phone camera is enough. He does suggest two practices to use throughout the book: A Daily Record and Daily Observation. The Daily Record will become your journal throughout the book. It will be the record of your evolving style. David Ulrich recommends taking 100 to 200 photographs a week.

Last year, I was given a beautiful camera as a gift. I know how to turn it on and off, change the battery and use autofocus. “Zen Camera” has inspired me to learn more and develop my skills and style. I have put into my weekly schedule, a time to observe and take photographs. Zen practice has always fascinated me and to combine that with the element of photography is magical.

If you are a seasoned photographer, this book is also for you. My son is an accomplished photographer and filmmaker, and he was fascinated with the exercises the book recommended to do.

If you are looking for a creative outlet, want to practice mindfulness, or even reduce stress, this is the book for you. It can transform your life.

How to Reset Your Mind to Positive

By: Gloria Marie

“How to Reset Your Mind to Positive” is a diet for your thoughts. When we go on a diet for our body, we avoid some foods because our bodies are composed of what we eat. Similarly, what we put in our minds results in what we have in our world. Our thoughts manifest into our lives. With this reset, you can begin to change your environment and bring more peace and happiness into your life. Are you ready for the mind reset?

If you are working on new goals or are trying to manifest something, this is the perfect diet for you to try. This mental diet will only take three days. But, in that time you will see results and will start a new track. You cannot want change in your life and leave your mind unchanged. First, you must change your mind and thoughts for your life to change. This is the key to life- reset and renew.

Here are the seven points to keep in mind for your three-day mental diet:

1. Before you begin, spend a day or two in preparation. It is best not to start this if you know it is going to be a stressful week,
2. To train your mind during these three days, no negative thoughts. Only thoughts that are positive, constructive, and optimistic can be entertained. Thoughts of failure, fear, criticism, judgment of yourself or others are banned for the next three days.
3. If you are with someone that talks negative, do not engage in the conversation. Change the subject.
4. To remind yourself that you are on this diet, wear a unique bracelet, or a rubber band around your wrist, carry a crystal or post-it notes. Use whatever will work for you as a reminder.
5. When negative thoughts come up: think of something or someone that brings you joy, think of God, or say an affirmation.
6. Keep this to yourself, until the three days are up.
7. If any difficulties arise, hold steady like a rock and know when everything settles, your world will be better.
You will be amazed by this reset. Transform your life by renewing your mind.

The Power of Visualization Technique

By: Gloria Marie

All growth is from within and visualization is a fantastic tool to help. The world within gives the cause and the world without the effect. It is important to control our thoughts to bring desirable conditions. “Right thinking” can be learned to manifest what you desire in your life. A new relationship? A new job? More money? A new home?

For visualization to be most effective, you need to believe in the images and as the experience becomes effective your belief will deepen. The tool explained in this video can help you kick-start your process. It is preparing your mind to accept and become receptive to the helpful images. I like to refer to it as Step One in the Visualization learning process.

Let me guide you through the process.

Setting Boundaries

By: Gloria Marie

Featured Video Play Icon

If you have trouble setting boundaries, you need to watch this video. Are you ever torn between what you want to do and what you “should” do? Try these three steps mentioned in the video

Setting boundaries can be difficult in some areas of our lives. You may have no trouble with boundaries at work or with your children. How about boundaries with your family members or with friends? Or most important; boundaries with yourself? It is essential to be aware of and establish personal boundaries with ourselves, only then can we set boundaries with others. I equate it to the oxygen mask on planes. The flight attendant says, “Place the mask over your face before placing the mask with any children you are traveling with”.

If we begin with ourselves then, it will be easier to establish other boundaries in our lives. By doing this you will empower yourself and become more confident. This will give you self-fulfillment and then you can freely give of yourself to others: your children, your family, and your friends. It is like putting gas in the tank of your car. If there is no gas, the car stops. If “your tank” is empty, it is hard to lead a happy, peaceful life.

Sometimes we feel guilty for doing things for ourselves or taking time for ourselves. There are all the “shoulda’” and “have to dos”. We get stuck in routines at work and at home. We go on autopilot and before we know it, we are exhausted and drained.

This week’s exercise is to create a “Boundary” for you.

1. Pick something that you enjoy doing: meditating, playing music, exercising, or reading. Have it something you look forward to doing, not something that is guilt driven.
2. Schedule this activity for 30 minutes to 1 hour each day for the next week. Put it on your calendar.
3. If you have children or roommates, put a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your door. This is your special time to renew and refresh your soul.

By empowering yourself to do this, it will carry over into other parts of your life.

The Power of Belief

By: Gloria Marie

Do you ever feel you are not enough? Or something is too good to be true? Free yourself from self-commendation. See perfection and hold onto that belief. Believe in your dreams. Be specific about them and hold onto that belief. When you plant seeds for a potato, it takes time for it to grow. However, there is a lot going on under the soil. Have faith. Happiness is your birthright.

The Lost Art of Good Conversation

By: Gloria Marie

gloria pierson, gloria marie pierson, the lost art of good conversation

With the dawn of modern technology, we are losing verbal communication with each other. “The Lost Art of Good Conversation” supplies simple, practical ways to reconnect with each other mindfully. Sakyong Mipham suggests that advanced technologies intensify the use of words and images through the speed of communication. Because of this pace, we think less before we speak and therefore our spoken words are more harmful.

This book has us take a step back toward simpler times and gives suggestions to engage with others in a kind and respectful way. It brings us back to the basics of listening and connecting with our family, our colleagues, and strangers. Each chapter discusses a different situation and at the end of the section is a Reflection to reinforce the lesson.

The author uses the principles of the Shambhala tradition of meditation, mindfulness, and compassion. This book gives many ideas of how to communicate with others, though starters for conversations and how to talk in stressful situations.

I especially enjoyed the chapter on “Avoid Complaint.” It gave an excellent method to reduce complaining to others. The technique was to make a list of everything that is seemingly wrong in your life. From the list choose one of your routine complaints. The refrain from indulging it in a set period of time. Let’s face it; no one wants to hear us complain.
Everyone can learn and pick up practical tips from this book and connect with others in a kind, compassionate way.
