Shooting Stars and Spinning Needles

It’s nearly the end of August, and for those of us living in Austin, TX, it is hotter than it has been all year.  Even now, at 10:00 at night, it is still 95 degrees.

So, rather than write a long, heavy blog, I’ve decided to do something a little different.  I’m going to refer y’all to some great, inspiring work by fellow humans and add a comment or two of my own.

First up… Jump over to this link to see creativity in action.  It is from a blog called Hyperbole And a Half.

Have you ever felt like this yourself?  How about when you first learned of Visualization, Manifestation, and the Law of Attraction?  Have you ever written a list of what you most desired only to go back again and again to add one or two more items?

After a while, the list gets so long, you find yourself erasing a line or two out of fear that you’re asking too much.  And then, sitting back and looking at it, you tear up the whole thing saying that job or man doesn’t exist, and if it/he did, it/he would never come looking for you, so why bother.

Yeah, I’ve been there… like yesterday.  That’s part of what makes Allie’s work so hysterical; it is so real!  Her creative drawing is the other big part!

Well, good thing the Wish Genie, or what I call the Universe, is not a … well … what she said.

As Abraham always says, step 1, making the wish, is automatic.  On days like this, a lot of Texans are likely wishing for that first cold front, a hard rain, cheaper electricity, or October.  Doesn’t matter how you phrase it.  Step 1 is easy.

Step 2 is the work of the Wish Genie… uh… the Universe, so no worries there.

Now Abraham’s focus is on Step 3, the allowing.  My focus is a little different, but with the same end.  For me, seeing the Perfection of the Universe promotes allowing.  By seeing how the entire Universe conspires to bring each of us what we desire jumps us right past tolerance all the way to gratitude.  At least that’s the intention.

Since I’m keeping this short (for a reason I’ll get to in a moment), I let that stand at that…for now.

The next link I am including here is a short 8-minute TV shot of the Acupuncturist of the family.  Yep, my big sis had her TV debut today explaining the benefits of Acupuncture, how it promotes health and well being.  Her Leo-rising kicked in and you would swear she did TV for a living rather than spinning needles and stimulating Chi.

And if you’ve read the first edition of A Fool’s Journey, then you might be asking yourself if the Acupuncturist I wrote about in the 10 of Swords was in fact inspired by my big sis and the answer would be a definite yes.  I might even say it was a description of a past life of hers, but then again, I might not. 🙂

So check out the short video and learn a little bit about Acupuncture from my sister – Terry Tangredi.

Last little tidbit for y’all.  The reason I am keeping this blog short is not because I’m not in the mood to write, but quite the opposite; I have been writing a lot.  Book writing is my focus for the moment and if things go as planned, my work for the fall is cut out for me.  I’ll share more down the road, so check back!
