To My Subscribers and Followers:

My gratitude to you, my readers, subscribers, and followers of my blog FollowCatherine.com for bringing me to this point – one step closer to aligning with my true purpose, and that is to inspire, to create, and to co-create with those of you who are in alignment with my purpose, to truly experiencing a life of wonderment, true peace, and unspeakable Joy.

I am receiving hundreds of comments and requests every day now since January. I will not be able to thank you individually and I am taking this time to let you know my heartfelt gratitude personally for your respect and eagerness to learn more and more about who you truly are. I appreciate you. You are whole and perfect, strong and powerful, abundant and prosperous, loving and beloved, harmonious, at peace and so very, very happy.

Thank you for your very inspiring comments, unending encouragement, and emotional support to continue writing. I am grateful. I am posting about 1 – 2 articles for you a week as the inspiration comes, each article takes about 8-12 hours to write (from a transcendent state), compose, editing and more editing, add HTML codes, then finally posts and give you the Valuable Final Product (VFP).

In this 3-dimensional Universe, I am reflecting back to you what you are thinking, desiring, and wanting. The articles are a reflection of your desires for a more harmonious living and the simple action steps to attain joy, peace, love, understanding, perfect health, abundance, and glorious relationships of your choosing. I say “We are all Deliberate Creators”. We are creating all the time. Now you want to be able to design your life your own way. A desire for a higher awareness of your Being has begun and this heightened awareness causes you to want more and that is very very good. Always remembering that you are the creator, and only you can make the choice to Be. Read on and focus only on what is good for you as you glean through the different articles and the ones that are not in alignment with you will just fall away. Attention is everything. Focus only on what you want. Where your attention is, that is what you are getting. Deliberately create your life. No one is here to drive anything home or force anything to happen for you. Life is suppose to be easy. Be present at all times. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not here, today is all you have. Let no one choose for you. You are the One you have been waiting for.

THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY!

Humanity has awakened to it’s awareness of pure consciousness state of Being. How to get there from this culture of mind-full-ness to enlightenment – the first step is lit with your desires, the second step is for you to take — follow your heart, follow your calling. Catherine Fleishman

Word Clearing:

Mind-full-ness: (a take on the word mindfulness) Here I mean the busy mind. Thinking, thinking, constantly thinking mind. We are suppose to be thinking all the time, planning, categorizing, naming, labeling, setting goals, judging, we keep a score card. We believe we are mind attach to a body. We have picked up belief systems from our well meaning relatives and Earth friends. Most of these belief systems no longer serve us. Some have a paralyzing effect, some have protected us from danger, some have served us very well. But our mind is busy.

My commentary:

It is late fall. My friend and I spent early Sunday morning before church to walk in the woods surrounded by a beautiful lake. It was one of my wishes as I have not visited this lake before, so I feel very exhilarated for the newness of the experience we were about to embark and for his thoughtfulness to grant my wish, without letting me know his plans. It was a 2-hour walk. If you’ve ever experience a 2-hour walk with nature you will find your mind quieting down and you become the observer. We saw trees that have been chewed by beavers, accurately, sharply, intently chopped or munched around the bottom of the trunk, some trees ready to topple down. We continued to walk and I started to get playful with my thoughts. I figured it was the work of more than one beaver, maybe two, or three, or more. By the look of the many chiseled trees, there may be an underwater village of beavers. Those happy beavers! I chuckled to myself. If I was a beaver, I know I would be. They must be in water heaven. I imagined and heard them talking to each other as they chomped, saying to each other, “Yummm, my teeth is sharp, buddy, how about yours?” The other one responded, “Come around on this side and see the beauty of my work!” “Do you want to finish this one today or go the next tree?” The other group of beavers shouted “Timber!”

It was so fascinating because the tree looked like the work of two strong and burly lumberjacks, alternately, with their sharp ax whittled the trunk to topple it down. So very fascinating! My friend was admiring the work these creatures as well. to me anyway. It was a thought, without any score card attached to it. Just a passing thought. I am still chuckling to myself, fascinated as to what my mind is doing. As if my mind became suddenly sharp and clear, my senses pure, my body lighter. I was happy coming here, now I am beyond happy.

We continued our adventure. I was eager for more. I looked up and whispered “thank you” looking up to a Higher being. A habit I picked up from my friend. Then we walked and walked through the woods as we followed the path to loop around the lake. My mind had become quiet. I was no longer imagining, nor thinking. Time passed and we were not aware. Other people walked around us to pass us. We were not walking to exercise but it was a good walk. The quieting of the mind brought us an inner awareness.

I saw the swirling leaves of oranges and browns, muted reds and yellows, floating upwards carried off by the gentle wind. Soon we could hear the soft wind against the trees. We could hear the call of the birds, the gentle breeze across the top of the water; I heard the rustling of our feet as we walked through fallen leaves. Then I could feel the roots of the trees against the bottom of my tennis shoes. I saw my friend hugging a tree and rubbing his hands on the bark of the trunk, his face illuminated by the rising Sun. I wanted to follow suit, delayed by a thought. The big blue above is now closer in sight. A small thought bubble, floated by “Is it me thinking this? I could touch the sky!”

I rubbed the tree trunk and looked at the bark closely, it looked like patterns of miniatures ancient statues side-by-side, forming a pattern, “hmmm” (I heard me say that, but I didn’t say it), – correction, patterns of a language, letters, symbols, and the like – – the symbols are communicating to each other or communicating to something. I watch the thought pass, I did not pursue it. But definitely the bark created a pattern of language. There were no words spoken between us for a time, I don’t remember how long. Then a distinct sound had broken through our silence against the backdrop of a stronger wind as we come to half-a-loop around the bend. My friend signaled to halt and listen, he may have put his fingers on his lip to signal me to stay quiet, I don’t remember, but he communicated something to me and I understood. It was the sound of the woodpecker drumming. At that moment, I finally remembered, I knew, I remember now, it was the same feeling when I am by the ocean watching the waves. We had reached a heightened awareness, not many people would experience. We were no longer thinking. We have become the observer. There was me, the body, and there was Me, the Observer.

Have you ever heard a woodpecker do its pecking (drumming) masterfully? Well you ask, “What does masterfully sounds like?” “How can you tell?” Well my answer, “animals don’t know any difference, there is none. They all are, masters at who they are.”

Did you know that there are many different kinds of woodpeckers and their drumming vary in speed and pitch? Have you taken time to truly hear and be absorbed in the act of listening? Really listen. Your mind will become quiet. Your mind will stop thinking for a moment, then many minutes will pass, then time becomes of no consideration. Practice being present and the mind will quietened. Have you ever heard the call of your Being? Listen. Observe. Let your mind quiet down and you will reach a level of awareness where you can be the Eternal You. It is possible and it is attainable.

Exercises to Practice Listening:

A thought came to mind while typing this.

I visited my kickboxing coach while he was vacationing in Cape Hatteras one year. I wanted to teach kickboxing one year. I pursued a kickboxing coach. I went to DC one muggy summer night, by myself, to watch a semi-professional boxing fight. I figured if I was going to find a coach I would find him there. I was determined to find a coach. I went downstairs below the boxing stage to see the other fighters practicing, no one stopped me, they were too busy to worry about this little woman. I got to freely walk about and observe the fighters, the coaches and the how they were training. I locked my eyes on one coach. He kicked his leg without effort like he was slicing butter with his leg and his foot ended up at his boxer’s cheek bone, so shave close, you could hear the hair on the boxer’s cheek cower. He was the One. I was catapulted into the air by my excitement, (well not literally) but my eyes did bug out. I took a big breath in. I waited and tempered my elation. It was time for his guy now to go up and fight. I got his attention briefly, making myself small, as I felt uncomfortable with all the male energy around me. Thank God, I did not wear my 4-inch high heels and red leather mini-skirt and matching red leather jacket. I introduced myself, hurriedly, told him my name, he repeated it, and he told me his name, I wrote it down, (I had a shoulder bag with enough room for a pen and a small notepad, Yes!). “Alan,” he said he could not talk then but gave me his gym’s name in Prince George’s County. I wrote it down, would not remember the name if I didn’t, too excited to memorize anything now. I followed behind them, feeling a bit better than I belonged, as now I got to talk to a coach and I am trailing behind him, so I had the courage to stay and watch the fight. I booked outta’ there as fast as I could, holding my heart with one hand, so it wouldn’t fall off, as I am too excited.

The following week I visited his boxing gym. I knocked on the small window and asked for him. The person behind the barred small window, directed me to walk around his cubby hole, (more like a cage) and pointed me to the locker room. I found Alan’s corner, he was not there, but there was a big note posted on the cork board. It said I am at the Outer Banks, in Cape Hatteras, his address there was listed, and said if you want to stop by and visit, feel free, call ahead of time. They were staying in one house one week and moving to another house for the second week. I was there on Saturday morning and it looked like they would be moving to the next house the following day.

I hurried home. I packed my kids and husband and I said we are invited to go to Cape Hatteras for the week. My husband asked, “Who invited us?” I said, “My coach,” (not really yet, but my coach to be). Cape Hatteras was dark, not a single light bulb exists, as if I was in pre-Thomas Edison era. On an aside the first electric light bulb was invented in 1809. Seventy years later (1879) Edison discovered that a carbon filament in an oxygen-free bulb glowed but did not burn up for 40 hours. Edison eventually produced a bulb that could glow for over 1500 hours. The island looked liked there was a black out, not even the light house was lit. There was no reason that Thomas Edison’s light bulb should be outlawed in the islands. We got there about 3 am in the morning. No GPS works here either and no cell phone alive. Cape Hatteras is nowhere on the map, in a remote Island surrounded by water. I know that was the definition of an island, I was making a point here. We got a map, we got directions before driving, but you couldn’t read the street names. We had to turn at every street close to where we think the house is so an hour later we found the house. I courageously knocked on the door. (I had a 4-month old baby and a one-half year old toddler in the car waiting and a puzzled husband). A woman answered through a window and asked who I was. I said, “It’s Cathy, tell Alan, I met him at the fight, and I saw his note, and I am here to visit.” I heard the woman yell my name, and someone answered back, “Who?” I repeated myself; “we met at the fight a week ago.” “Oh”, he said, “Okay, let her in.” I half hollered, muffling my voice, “I brought my 2 daughters and my husband, they are waiting in the car” he mumbled back, “huh, okay, okay, fine, fine, let them in.” I could imagine his half opened eyes, making sense of what is going on in the wee hours of the morning. His wife showed us an empty room and we slept happily ever after, until the following morning.

Alan and his wife were very hospitable, generous, and kind. We helped them move to the next vacation house, we followed them there and spent two days with my new coach. He agreed to train me. He was the United States Olympic Kickboxing coach. My husband was introduced wind surfing. Our babies helped Alan complete a 1000-piece puzzle. And we went home. This story was now on paper because I wanted to give you an exercise for quieting the mind and learn or experience to be fully-present.

Exercises: – Practice Observing:

I see the blue peaks of the ocean creating a lively line dance across the top of the waters at Cape Hatteras with the colorful sails of the boats carried by the wind across the landscape of my window through a pair of binoculars. The dark skin of the wind surfers glistening as the Sun rays bounces off their moist skin.

Just below the window, I could see my husband now beginning to learn to stand and hold the sail up after falling hundreds of times. The little one crawling back and forth looking at the same scene I was observing. I watched my year-and-half old, with her tiny delicate fingers, matching the small tiny puzzle pieces just the right size for her. I noticed her intently, meticulously move the pieces about. She was having no anxiety over the 1000 pieces in front of her. The activity was neither big nor small, easy or difficult, she was absorbed, time was not in her mind. I gave her no instructions or prodding. I let her be. She’s (still) a genius, pure positive energy – without adults protecting her from any disappointments-of not being good or old enough to complete the puzzle. Alan taught her to find the pieces that had the straight edges first, for the borders. He said those were the key pieces to isolate to one side. And once she found those she could now begin piecing the frame of the picture. She found most of them. Both girls were quiet; they were caught up in their activity, like me. I stayed present as I continued to watch the scenery in front of me, my binoculars moving across horizontally, effortless, to view the lines of boats and the colorful displays of sails blown by the wind, aware of the two girls, and his wife, in the kitchen, preparing lunch. I repeat the process, of observation, now my mind quiet, I have become the Observer. I was not moving the binoculars horizontally anymore, the activities had become a motionless symphony. Time stood still. My mind – still. My thoughts, which thoughts? I asked myself. No answer came. I was happy and content.

More mind exercises came to mind such as watching a soccer game and seeing through the eyes of a 4-year old barely 2 1/2 feet in height. Through his eyes, he could see running feet, black cleats, white socks, green and white striped pants, up, down, over and over, legs moving back and forth and side to side, the dance of the soccer players, the bodies sweeping forward and back across the field in unison. A great dance to observe, especially for an adult, seeing through the innocent eyes of a young boy of pure consciousness.

I will add more life to this in another writing. There’s much more to share with you. My heart is full of Joy. It is 3 am and I would like to post this article before the morning sun rises to make another glorious Sunrise. When you wake up, it is Today, that is the only time we have, Today, here in the East Coast.

I wish you all the best of everything. Love one another in a sacred way in the celebration of life. You are on holy ground. You are Beloved, Observer. Be present. Observe. Nothing more than that and that is all there is to that.

To be continued…

Love Live, Live Love.

Catherine

THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY! ON THIS GLORIOUS DAY, TODAY FEBRUARY 25, 2012

We have come to identify with time and mind. We are the thinking mind and we are because we are tied to time, who would we be if we disregard time? We have a past to live up to. We have war to prepare for and battles to win. So we need time. Our ego says so. Our ego protects us from mind and time. Ego feels our survival depends on time and mind. And so we ego our way into existence or was it that Ego wants to ensure it’s own survival. Without time and mind, Ego cannot exist. But there is always an inner calling, a tug, sometimes faint, sometimes too fast of a feeling to even know. Just one of those things, we dismiss it. We are too busy in our mind-full-ness to be aware or reflect. Every single minute of our working hour counts to meeting deadlines. And we do it again and yet again. Have you ever heard your calling? Have you ever stopped to hear the call? Your Eternal call? Yes? No?

There is a gap between our thinking. Silence ushers in the gap. The longer the silence, the wider the gap. The reason your calling is a fleeting feeling because the gap is too narrow. The gap is the doorway to your Being. Stop to listen. Widen the gap. Observe the flag on the rooftop blown by the wind. Observe the symphony of the grass bend without resisting the wind. Observe the wheels of a bicycle going around and around. Nature has a pattern, a repeating pattern. Observe the Sun and the Moon arrive at the same height on the horizon opposite each other. Be the Observer. Be totally Present and you will experience Being. Catherine Fleishman

Inspiration and Spiritual Stories, Catherine practices the Law of Attraction and Universal Laws, The Secret, on How to Attract your Soul Mate and live a life of Peace and Joy- “Love Thyself with all your Heart and Soul just because You Exist and nothing more or less than that. You Are Love,” by Catherine, her Inspirational Quote for Valentine’s Day 2012.

Dear God,

It was not all of a sudden – but it was a clear and definite departure- a kind of resolve and that somehow a goodbye was released. I felt it first, but it was distant. He was distant. He no longer caressed my hands. He had a resolved – not to be – here – with me. He had a puzzling energy. I could not comprehend nor do I want to. I was not prepared, I am not ready. What am I to do?

Because of my asking, wanting and desiring, I received a gift – a gift is not a gift until it is received. I received a second gift. I am a grateful receiver. I receive a gift of understanding. I understood.

I cried for many hours, many days, many months, and then a third gift came. I let go and I understood. I understood and I mourned – the third gift. The gift of mourning to release, I understood, I let go, and I mourned.

Wherever we were, driving, or whatever we were doing, we were always hand-in-hand and he caressed my hand exclusively. I felt his kindness through and through. I fell in love with him. He told me there are many people I can love. He said to channel the love I have for him to the rest of the human family. I learned to focus the first gift of sweetness and kindness, innocent Love, and because I am a grateful receiver I gave freely. I understood. I let go of my love for him and I released it to my human family.

The first gift penetrating still in my very soul, because of my asking and wanting, and desiring for more knowledge, more understanding, more clarity, and because I am a grateful receiver, I received another gift of higher clarity and of understanding on still another higher plane of understanding – the Art of Allowing. He is free to be and I am free to be as well.

Love is Love. You cannot stop it, hold it, contain it, or keep it in, hide it or bury it, or lock it in place or lock it in a box or lock it in your heart. Love is the expression of life. Love must be lived. Love must be released into the Universe and with it the rest of the human family is glorified. Love and life is to be lived in all of its glory, in all its faces and expressions.

– It brings a smile to a child
– It brings wholeness to the soul
– It brings good things to those recipient of Love
– It brings expression of life; the flowers bloom at just the right time to express its beauty to the beholder of the moment
– It brings reality and meaning to why we are here in this time and space.

And so I am here, My Darling, My Love, to express this Love for you, this Love for life,

this Love for humanity, this Love of Living in this brief moment of Life.

Because of my gifts and I am a grateful receiver, I learned that I cannot be less than Loving.

I cannot hide my Love for you for I am Love

I am in Love with this Life and of living

This Love for Life is alive and present in every moment.

I cannot be less than I am, I cannot be less than Love, I am Love.

And so on this New Year’s Day, I found my freedom.

I am free. I am free to Love,
I am free to express,
I am free to live it,
I am free to be only and only to Love – to

Love and Live on Purpose.

The path to Spirituality is not about holding on or holding in, it is about letting go,

I let go and l give my Love to all of you and

I Let God in.

Your Catherine


My commentary:

You may replace the word God with the name you use for the Higher Being, some may refer to it as Alah, Buddha, Jehovah, My Lord, it is you who create.

Love is a very touchy subject for most of us, it is in the same ranking as health and money. We grew up observing that we are all exclusively in love with just one person and that is good because we live in a monogamous society. We are not taught though to love the human family as a whole, but no matter, I learn to focus my love outside of who I desired, and at that time he was not ready to return that love to me not that he did not love me, there were other competing circumstances because of this I was able to let go expecting nothing in return, but I loved anyway and never stopped loving him and we did not stop seeing each other on another level of love. Once I mourned and released that exclusivity of my love for him, I was able to live my life in a state of peace and bliss. I did not compromise. Love is Love. I reached a higher level of understanding. Transcendental Meditation really help me throughout all of this. The writings you are reading here in my blog are all created from a transcendental state. All throughout I was in love and in love with life. Four years later, my soul mate and I enjoy our togetherness and our life is full of sweetness, kindness, innocence, pure love, respect, harmony, and peace. We call our home, our sanctuary.

Every relationship must be in a sacred way, in a holy place, and in the celebration of life. Whereever you are, look around you, love for the sake of Love, for the sake of you, me, and others.

Some days I would leave before him, after we’ve shared our morning tea, to teach my Yoga class, and I would come home, and he had already left for work, I would come home before him and I would find half of an orange or an apple or half a chocolate, he left it for me to share with me. We share everything. I would laugh sometime because I would tell him that if I ate half of everything I would end up as tall as him. I wrote the article about the meaning of two, two representing Unity, not two but one, a Perfect One. This reminds me of that piece of writing under http://followcatherine.com/roasted-red-peppers-and-eggplant-a-dichotomy-of-two-but-really-one-a-perfect-one/

Word Clearing: Mourn: to feel or express grief or sorrow

I am a practitioner of the Law of Attraction for many years now. The book I use to study this subject matter and I consider my bible is “Ask and It is Given” by Jerry and Esther Hicks. The fourth gift I mention here is the Art of Allowing (which is the 3rd Step of the Law of Attraction process). So here are some excerpts for you.

Reference: Art of Allowing

Art of Allowing: The practiced process of deliberately choosing your subjects of attention, with a keen awareness of how that perspective feels to you. By deliberately choosing thoughts that feel good, you achieve vibrational alignment with your Source of Well-Being.

Rediscover the Art of Allowing Your Natural Well-Being
We want you to rediscover your innate ability to allow the Well-Being of this Universe to flow steadily and unrestricted into your experience, and we call this discipline the Art of Allowing. It is the Art of Allowing the Well-Being-which makes up every particle of that which you are and that which you come from-to continue to flow through you as you continue to be. The Art of Allowing is the art of no longer resisting the Well-Being that you deserve; the Well-Being that is natural; the Well-Being that is your legacy, your Source, and your very Being


Chapter 10
The Three Steps to Whatever You Want to Be, Do, or Have
The Creative Process is conceptually a simple one. It consists of just three steps:

• Step 1 (your work): You ask.
• Step 2 (not your work): The answer is given.
• Step 3 (your work): The answer, which has been given, must be received or allowed (you have to let it in

Step 1: You Ask:

Because of the wonderful and diverse environment in which you are focused, Step 1 comes easily and automatically, for this is how your natural preferences are born. Everything-from your subtle or even unconscious desires to clear, precise, vivid ones- results from the contrasting experiences of your day-to¬day life. Desires (or asking) are the natural by-product of your exposure to this environment of fantastic variety and contrast. And so, Step 1 comes naturally.

Step 2: The Universe Answers:

Step 2 is a simple step for you, for it is not your work at all. Step 2 is the work of the Non-Physical, the work of the GOD Force. All things that you ask for, large and small, are immediately understood and fully offered, without exception. Every point of Consciousness has the right and the ability to ask, and all points of Consciousness are honored and responded to immediately. When you ask, it is given. Every time. Your “asking” is sometimes spoken with your words, but more often it emanates from you vibrationally as a constant stream of personally honed preferences, each building on the next, and each one respected and answered.

Every question is answered. Every desire is given. Every prayer is answered. Every wish is granted. But the reason that many would argue with that truth, holding up examples of unfulfilled desires from their own life experiences, is because they have not yet understood and completed the very important Step 3-for without the completion of this step, the existence of Steps 1 and 2 could go unnoticed.

Step 3: You Allow It In:
Step 3 is the application of the Art of Allowing. It is really the reason your guidance system exists. It is the step whereby you tune the vibrational frequency of your Being to match the vibrational frequency of your desire. In the same way that your radio tuner must be set to match the frequency of the broadcasting station you desire to hear, the vibrational frequency of your Being must match the frequency of your desire. And we call that the Art of Allowing-that is, allowing what you are asking for. Unless you are in the receiving mode, your questions, even though they have been answered, will seem unanswered to you; your prayers will not seem to be answered, and your desires will not be fulfilled-not because your wishes have not been heard, but because your vibrations are not a match, so you are not letting them in.

PS:
I am resending this Blog to all of you on this Happy Valentines Day. Thank you for all of your glorious comments. I am grateful. I am inspired to keep writing as they flow from my thoughts, to flow to my hand, and pen, then onto paper and to share them with you.

Love Live, Live Love (LLLL)

Are you a deliberate Creator?

Hello Again,
I wrote this in September of 2010. I thought I would share it with you. Please enjoy. Savor your moments.

Be the Experiencer, Be the Flow-er of Energy, Personal Declarations of a Life of Bliss and Peace

I awakened from a blissful slumber. The night before I spoke with my Source as I always do every night before sleeping.

I posed many questions. What is my purpose? Why did I choose to project myself into this physical world?

This blue planet seemed to have attracted many more like me.

Do we have to go through life to experience contrast?
Why do we have to experience turmoil, physical, and emotional pain?
How come we did not stay on course? Why didn’t I stay on course?

I know and understood now that I wanted to experience unspeakable Joy!

What is it that attracted me to be me, Catherine, to be born to my chosen mother and father, and why the Philippines, why not Finland?

Will I know the answers to these questions before I decide to leave this life I chose?

Will I finish this life and complete my purpose, to complete the desire that is strong enough of a desire that I projected myself into this physical body?

Was I at all worried or concern that I cannot go back to pure positive energy where I came from, Eternal.

Why am I here? How do I stay on course? How do I stay blissful when there’s so much to do and accomplish, goals to meet, and there’s many distractions?

And why did I choose to forget previous lives and to promise myself to live in just these short moments without attachment to the past?

(See My commentary below)

What I expect is already here.

Built in all of my perceived problems are the solutions ready for me to tap into. For in the middle of chaos is an underlying orderliness, the solution is already here.

When I live in the Infinite I sense and live peace, because I know things are in their right places. I already created them. I need to live fully knowing what I want is already here.

Staying in the infinite supply, staying in harmony with the Source, there’s this infinite supply to partner with – it will work for me and with me.

I have it in my thoughts, I have it in my feelings, in my words and actions, I stay with it.

In between living to know the answers to questions, loving and living, knowing I am Infinite and everywhere, my life moves, constantly changing, and from an Infinite observer’s vantage point, my problems, questions, concerns, perceived lack, anxiety, struggles, all are a part of this world of change, they all blend into an eternal journey, of bliss, of ease, of unsettling feelings, of something is not right and then the storm passes, the sky is clear.

And thank goodness, because we want balance and harmony, because we ask, because we focus, we create the answers to our questions. We are all eternal creators of our own experiences. What we focus on, we get.

Much like a storm never goes on forever; it always has an ending and a beginning. The storms in your life will pass, rest assured of that.

I find the feeling place, If I am not here to earn or to prove myself right, then I must be the worthy receiver of “All That Is”.

I love the feeling of eagerness for the impending desire of meeting my soul mate and then with a blink of an eye, in an instant second, he is in front of me. Time does not exist. That is how we create; our focus brings about our reality.

I love my life.

I love the eagerness for the exciting feeling of abundance flowing to me.

I love my experiences, experiences of passion, of purpose, of my intention to flow energy to all I touch and to all that makes me happy and blissful.

Experiences of Joy flow to me.

I love the exhilaration – It is going to feel good to eat delicious food. It is gonna feel good to meet new people.

I love the feeling of good companion, good sights, great lovemaking while listening to the pitter patter of the rain against the rooftop.

I love it.

The deliberate creation of it excites me.

Aligning to it is exhilarating. I feel the vibrant passion rising within me.

My skin is warmly radiantly experiencing the desires that flow out from me. It is exhilarating.

My heart is full, it cannot be filled anymore. One of the teachings of the Tao, is “when the cup is full, you stop pouring.”

It is as simple as that.

I feel the passion I have for life and living.

Life is delicious. I embrace the passionate Joy of life.

I am, You adore me.

I am Valuable, I am Worthy,

I am a Flower, (Flow-er)

I am an Allower,

I am a Lover,

I am a Selective Sifter.

Reality is what I create, not what others say it is. “Look Cathy”, they say, “you gotta face reality, it cannot be because there is this report, look at the numbers, it is all over Radio and TV, the Internet gurus, says it cannot be,” and I say, “that is their truth, I agree, it is their truth, their very own reality” because they and others have focused their energy to create that which is reflected on the evidence they presented. And so I sift through many realities, and I choose, I create that which is my reality. My reality is:

I flow energy,

I direct energy and guide the energy to my desires.

Desires that keep expanding and flowing from me.

I am Happy.

I am a Happy Receiver.

I am exhilarated every single moment.

My heart fills easily with Joy.

And I direct that Joy to others,

Because I am a Focuser,

I am a deliberate Focuser of energy.

I Allow, I Receive, I am Blissful.

I am Love.

My commentary:

This particular piece of writing which includes declarations freeing me from getting caught up with thoughts and questions that spiral downward to nowhere but apathy, if not stopped, was inspired from a feeling of uneasiness and mis-alignment to my true desire to pursue a peaceful and harmonious living. On the way to that pursuit, barriers appear before me, the only way out of it is through it.

Fully knowing that we create by thinking it first, the only way out of it is to change the thoughts weighing us down and replace it with the thoughts we are wanting. The declarations above which begin with “I am” will serve as the thought, the self-inner talk, and replace old thoughts and habits that do not serve you in the long run. Above all our desires is the desire to feel good when we have it.

Speaking from our three-dimensional reality, two objects cannot occupy the same space, (one can be on top, beside it, on either side, or under it) but not the same space. Two different opposing thoughts cannot occupy the same space in your mind. You cannot think health and reap sickness, you cannot think strong and come out weak, you cannot smile and be angry too at the same time, try this, frown and smile, at the same time. It is out of alignment with Universal Truth. The truth is what you focus on you create. And how do you know what you are thinking?

You are experiencing them all, they appear in your life at some point in your life. If you like what you are living then keep thinking them. But if you do not, you have a choice; change what you are thinking to thoughts that are in alignment with what you desire at the present time, because it is now, not yesterday, and not tomorrow, because life is now, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not here. Abraham Hicks calls this state of deliberate creating, the leading edge of thought. Your power to create your future experiences is now.

This reminds me of when I teach Yoga. Inspired by the message from Kahlil Gibran (see excerpt below, I always include the bow and arrow pose, which is executed from the Warrior 2 pose (Virabhadrasana 2) with your right leg forward at 90 degree angle, lunging forward and with thumbs up, you imagine an arrow appearing at your left, stringing the arrow to its bow at right hand, feeling the strength of the string and releasing it, the arrow goes swift and far, which I say, “a symbolic act of sending Yoga practitioners into the future taking with them glad tidings and the message of peace, love, and respect for all living things. From this pose, you are sending this generation and our future generations to a life of bliss. We create our life today.

Here’s a message from Kahlil Gibran:

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness, for even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Your power to create, your future is now. Do you listen to your self- talk. What thoughts are more predominant – positive-negative, allowing-resistance, confusion-clarity, thought-counter-thought, intention-counter-intention. So what is you reality? Are your experiences the balance of your thoughts. Your power to create your future is now.

Now that I am on the subject of future generations, it reminds me our children.

Why do children seem to flow without concept of time?

Children are great examples of Law of Attraction practitioners.
I have two truly beautiful daughters. The younger one, at age 5, chose to be a competitive cheerleader rather than a gymnast. She used to cut out pictures of dogs and cell phones. She competes around the East Coast and so she is always in a crowd in huge auditoriums where her team competes. This small 5-year old body among thousands of people in this competition venue makes me a bit uneasy but I was an athlete, and once an athlete, always an athlete. It is in the blood and there’s no resisting it. She will find a way to compete and project her body into space for the exhilaration of it. I was a cheer Mom for 5 years so we travel a lot to many places. She really wanted a cell phone. Her explanation is that “Mom, I know how to take care of it (she has observed me take care of my cell phone and charging it) plus, she added, “You can always find me in the crowd. You can always call me to make sure I am okay.” I’m sold, I can feel my heart melting, giving in. She cut out pictures of cell phones, pasted it on a poster board, on the refrigerator door, on her bedroom door, on her backpack. So whenever I move around in the house, it is plainly visible to me. She is not bothered by the fact that she is only 5, and adults just don’t trust children to carry cell phones and along with that comes a monthly bill. What would my mother-in-law think about what kind of mother I am. I gave it to her anyway because it feels right, and I gave her my trust. She proved herself capable and the cell phone did gave me a bit of security. By the way, to get trust, you must give trust.

My daughter had no reservation (or guilt or counter-thought is a better description) about making known what she wants. Is it because, to them life is like a game and we have been de-genuisized, thinking life is suppose to be serious. Life is a game consisting of freedoms, purposes, and barriers. We agree to play it, we live it, and we create the game, we create the rules, and we decide which game to play and who the players are.

Children are born geniuses, they are born causative, they make things happen, because they are in it to play a game, they are never the effect. Until, the adults, well-meaning in intention, kept insisting they face reality, — their dreams are never going to come true, what they want they won’t get, and just keep wishing, there will be always a barrier, and there will be disappointments along the way. We protect them from our own experiences and disappointments.

So we don’t project ourselves to live an exhilarating life. Did you agree or did you not agree? Do you point the finger and do you blame someone else for your predicament?

Everything is an agreement. You choose to agree or disagree, nevertheless, it is an agreement. Choose no, choose yes, in the end of it all, you choose.

Our Universe expands all the time and we create that expansion. When we say we are not going anywhere, I will stay right here, I won’t change, I won’t desire, I won’t want, we are actually going against nature, we are really sliding backwards, slowly, the change is gradual and we become unaware.

The truth is we are an ever expanding consciousness, just like our ever expanding Universe.

Do you want to be caught up thinking that you get up every morning to complete something? Or to fix a broken world or a dying Planet?

I am not saying, keep a blind eye and turn your head in another direction. Do what you must. You are the creator of your life. You are either doing it by default or you are deliberately focusing your life.

Our planet will take care of itself; it will evolve on its own time. As for completing something, on your way to completing a task, a new desire is born from you to begin again, to try something new, to experience the next exhilarating desire rising from within you. Yes, it might seemed you need to complete a project, because you don’t want anything that has not gone through to its finality, else it haunts you later, but life is a beginning and an ending, an ending signals a beginning. Where does ending and beginning and beginning and ending start and end in this circle of creation? The only thing for sure is that we are ever changing and we are ever wanting, we are ever expanding. We are Eternal.

The purpose of life is Joy, the basis of life is Freedom, and the goal of life is Expansion. This is life, this is bliss.

I wish you All Health, All Wealth and All Love.

May all your desires be spontaneously and your wishes instantly fulfilled in this lifetime!

Love Live, Live Love

Khalil; born Gubran Khalil Gubran, January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) also known as Kahlil Gibran, was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of the Ottoman Mount Lebanon mutasarrifate), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. He is chiefly known in the English speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, and became extremely popular in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.

Roasted Red Peppers and Eggplant, A Dichotomy

Roasted Red Peppers & Eggplant, A Dichotomy

October 22, 2007

My Love,

What a great weekend!

Last night I was inspired to cook. I prepared the food with you in mind and the feelings of Joy I receive daily by your example.

– Roasted red peppers soaked in olive oil, soy sauce, apple cider, vinegar, and lemon
– Roasted eggplant in olive oil, garlic, and salt to taste
– Pita bread

Please enjoy. Warm the bread to awaken it. Add lemon if it’s too salty for your palate.
( I did not use a knife, I used only my hands to prepare the food)

My appreciation for you brought me here to this present moment. You’ve also inspired me to write so here are my thoughts for the day.

For now, I am soaked in love and I am loving it. I am living in the Flow.

I live now in accordance with my nature. I do not go against the way of things. I act in harmony with the present moment to connect and know the truth of just what to do.

It is called Living in the Flow in this temporary world of many changes and changing – the physical world of “10,000 things” as Lao Tzu calls it.

I focus my attention not on the food, the creation. Rather, I try to be aware in the silent knowing of what’s behind all acts of creation. We cannot know the Creator, if we focus on the creation.

I purposely did not remove the seeds from the one eggplant. The eggplant offers a silky texture and pleasant fragrance. Joined with garlic, it gives you that “bite” reminding me of the duality and dichotomy of the Universe, and yet it is all one.

So watch out, the garlic has a strong taste and the eggplant its opposing flavor. The mixture of apple cider, vinegar and lemon is mildly calmed by the soy sauce. The olive oil is the equalizer.

So I turned inward and experience the essence of the One who allowed this eggplant to emerge from a tiny seed. I look at life as going beyond this worldly perspective, to live from the inner knowing that our true essence is not of the world (being in the world), but not of this world of “10,000 things”.

On an aside, I am beginning to get the idea of the word “Two”, now seems funny to me these days.

The word “Two” keeps reminding me of its Unity. In the end, not Two but really One. Just the opposite end of the pole of creation. We are all a Perfect One, Perfect Creation, Perfect Love, Perfect Silent knowing, Joy!

Here is the 8th verse of the The Tao Te Ching,

Living in the Flow

The supreme good is like water,

Which nourishes all things without trying to.

It flows to low places loathed by all men,

Therefore, it is like the Tao

Live in accordance with the nature of things,

In dwelling, be close to the land.

In meditation, go deep in the heart.

In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.

Stand by your word.

Govern with equity.

Be timely in choosing the right moment.

One who lives in accordance with nature

does not go against the way of things.

He moves in harmony with the present moment,

Always knowing the truth of just what to do.

My commentary:

You want to savor reading the 8th verse, read it slowly, and let it seep in your tongue where we have tons of saliva, attached to flavors and emotions, that’s why kissing is so good.

After practicing my TM (Transcendental Meditation) in the mornings, I read a book or maybe two and from the transcendent state (state beyond thought or thinking, thinking state, or busy mind). From the transcendent state, it is easy to write, where your thoughts are most powerful, and is coming from what I can describe, inspiration. From this state my understanding becomes deeper, on a cellular level. We have trillions of cells, each one a point of consciousness, intelligent, and capable of achieving its own intelligent balance, without our say so.

Because I savor and practice the inspirations from the books I read, it was easy to write what I have just shared with you on this piece of inspired writing, I call Roasted Red Peppers and Eggplant, a dichotomy of Two, but Really One, a Perfect One.

If you like what you read here, I recommend reading:

Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book,Change your Thoughts, Change your Life

Here’s a reference from Wikipedia:

Laozi (Western translation = Lao Tzu) is traditionally regarded as the author of the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching), though the identity of its author(s) and/or compiler(s) has been debated throughout history. It is one of the most significant treatises in Chinese cosmogony. As with most other ancient Chinese philosophers, Laozi often explains his ideas by way of paradox, analogy, appropriation of ancient sayings, repetition, symmetry, rhyme, and rhythm.

The Tao Te Ching, often called simply Laozi after its reputed author, describes the Dao (or Tao) as the source and ideal of all existence: it is unseen, but not transcendent, immensely powerful yet supremely humble, being the root of all things. According to the Daodejing, humans have no special place within the Dao, being just one of its many (“ten thousand”) manifestations. People have desires and free will (and thus are able to alter their own nature). Many act “unnaturally”, upsetting the natural balance of the Dao. The Daodejing intends to lead students to a “return” to their natural state, in harmony with Dao. Language and conventional wisdom are critically assessed. Taoism views them as inherently biased and artificial, widely using paradoxes to sharpen the point.

Word Clearing:

Cosmogony-definition: Cosmogony, or cosmogeny, is any scientific theory concerning the coming into existence or origin of the universe, or about how reality came to be.

Dichotomy: a division into two especially mutually exclusive or contradictory groups or entities

I wish You All Health, All Wealth, and All Love!

I am looking forward for my day to unfold, lost cell phone

“Follow Catherine Your Source of Inspiration for 2012 and Beyond”

I have much to re-learn.  I am re-reading the Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer for the the third time.  I am looking forward for my day to unfold.  The eagerness of what is to come is so delicious and I can savor it in my tongue.  I am practicing the 7 Faces of Intention from this book.  The 7 Faces of Intention are:

1) Creativity
2) Kindness
3) Love
4) Beauty
5) Expansion
6) Unlimited Abundance
7) Receptivity

This third book in my hand now,  I bought and I gave it to this lady from Australia.  Here’s the story.

Well, I got my pedicure and I sat at the drying table, my foot propped up on this long footstool tooled with drying fans and heated lamps as wide as 5 ladies sitting facing each other with their toes drying.  Anyway I was reading and this lady beside me starts to lean over towards me to read the book with me and so I asked her if she wanted me to read aloud for her.  She nodded.  So I read aloud enough for her to hear and mindful of everyone else at the table, a natural thing for me to do.  Thought nothing of it.  Then this woman started to sob.  I was reading this chapter on this boy, Shaya, (you really must read the whole story) who wanted to be in the game but he had some physical challenges, most of the boys in school would not want him on their team, but if he was chosen to play it would give him a sense of belonging, his father thought. “In Brooklyn, New York, Chush is a school that caters to learning-disabled children.” (Be sure to see the Reference section at the bottom of this page.)

Then the story unfolded that now Shaya has a bat in his hand (his father had asked one of the boys on the field and asked if Shaya could play) and ready to bat. The team was losing by 6 runs and the game is in the eighth inning, and now he is on the field, bat in hand, at the bottom of the ninth inning, two outs and bases loaded. “Shaya didn’t know how to hold the bat properly and would not know how to hit it either, so giving the bat to Shaya at this juncture;” well you might as well give away their chance of winning. The next pitch and he misses, the pitcher sort of came closer to him so he could lob the ball softly and give him a chance to make contact with the ball, one of his teammate too came to aid Shaya and together they held the bat waiting for the next pitch, the pitcher came another step closer, lob the ball, and Shaya and the teammate, together swung the bat and there goes a ground ball. And now the crowd is on their feet, but they are shouting his name to go run, run, run, now both teams are rooting for him, they got the picture of what the pitcher was orchestrating, players running after him almost dancing like ballerinas in slow motion, (my own rendition of the scene, but you get the picture), the pitcher threw the ball on a high arc to right field way beyond the first baseman. The players are screaming, “Shaya, run to second base,” “Shaya run to third base,” the players on both side pointing and guiding him home, “Shaya run home.” Well,

“Shaya ran home, stepped on home plate, and all 18 boys lifted him on their shoulders and made him the hero, as he had just hit a “grand slam” and won the game for his team.”

“That day,” said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, “those 18 boys reached their level of God’s perfection.”

So you can see why this lady besides me is now sobbing with Joy. I asked her, “would you like to take the book, please have it, really, thank you, please take it with you and read and enjoy it”. So she sobbed and nodded and took the book with her. My toes are dry, her eyes are dry, her toes are dry, everybody else’s toes were dry, the next set of ladies are taking over our seats, and with a smile on her face waved goodbye to me. I waved goodbye. The first book I lent to a friend, even forgot who I gave it too, so I bought a second one. That disappeared too, someone borrowed it. I did not get it back. So anyway, whenever I lose things, whoever has it must need it more than me. I don’t really have attachment to things. I would leave my belongings on tables and chairs or wherever my body is and I would leave or go to the bathroom and leave my belonging where it was. If I am not wearing it, I would have no attachment to it. My friends would ask, aren’t you afraid someone would take it, I would answer “No,” they must need it so they can have it. Anyway, I never really lost a thing.

I went to Las Vegas one year with a group of people and I left my cell phone in the back of the taxi that drove us to the hotel. I did not know I had left it until I was 20 minutes in line to check into my hotel room.  I started to look for my cell and could not find it.  I remembered the last time I had it was in the cab.  So I ran to go back to the lobby door where the taxi driver dropped me off. I saw the same taxi cab, same driver, and I approached him to let him know he has my cell phone.  He said he did not have my cell phone and I responded “Yes you do have my cell phone and I will show you”, I proceeded to open the back door and there it was under his seat, I sat behind him I remember.  With a big relief showing on his face, “you are lucky, I had already picked up another passenger, drove back to the airport picked up a passenger and drove back here” (in his lovely Indian accent). I said “Thank you”.  Of course, it was no surprise to me that my cell phone was there.  I had no doubt he had it. This is a magnificent Universe. The Universe is supporting me in everything I do.  I love my life!

I will tell you of another story in DC in another blog where I left my cell in back of a taxi cab, again.  Alright no use waiting I might as well share it here.  Same theme – lost cell phone.

I had just finished an early breakfast meeting and took this taxi cab to my H Street NW office in DC.  I left my cell phone on the back seat of this taxi cab. As soon as I entered the building I fumbled for my phone in my pocket.  Darn these designers of women’s suits.  I have no pockets. Men have pockets, why don’t women suits have any pockets.  I guess our hips and waistline must be smooth and trimmed or maybe I need to change my designer. Oh where oh where is Michael Kors?  Ok, I am now a bit embarrassed as this is not my first time to leave a cell phone inside the cab.  Well, as usual I wasn’t worried. I said it will turned up.  I will get it back.  I had to get a loaner phone in the meantime as I did not make a note of the cab’s name or the cab driver’s name and there was no way to track this phone.  I did not wait though. It was easy to get another phone. I always find ways to get another one.  A week goes by, nothing, no cell phone.  I was not worried. It will show up. I did not even try to conjure a story of how it would return to me. It was not my job.  It was the Universe’s job.  My job is just to be happy, expect, and receive.  Two and half weeks passed.  I got a phone call from my boss and he said there’s a taxi cab driver here who has your phone and I said, “great, could you thank him for me”, he said “Ok but he wants $25”, I said “could you give it to him please and find out why it took him two weeks”.  I text him, my business partner text him to make sure to call back as soon as he finds it. A few moments of silence as this taxi cab driver tells the reason to my boss.  My boss gets back on the phone and here’s the story.  “Well, the driver found the phone a week later when he was cleaning the cab and so the battery was dead.  It took him another week to find a cab driver with the same phone as you to charge your phone.  And he called right away when the phone turned on”.Well, alright, good story.  Please let him know how much I appreciate it”.  There my phone is back, not lost. By the way, while in the process of manifesting, I did not call people nor told the story about my lost cell phone, I did not do a blog, or facebooked anyone, because if I did my phone will be in perpetuity, unfound, uncharged, and unreturned to me.  Old as this phone was, I just saw it in my desk drawer, preserved.

Focus only on what you want and what you want you get.

Thank You Thank You Thank You My Universe

Love Live, Live Love

Catherine

My Soul Mate

Intense eyes – deep, sensual, looks at me with loving intensity

Spiritual – with spiritual purposeness, eternally aware of his eternalness 

Kind – talks to me with the power of intention  much like an acorn intends to become a magnificent oak tree built in it

Loving – tells me he loves me or shows me he loves me

Listens – with interest and total understanding

Gentleman – I walk on his side away from traffic and opens the door for me at all times but not just for me, for everyone else too, naturally

Adores – Me and Adores himself

Beautiful – to look at, he is terrific just because he is terrific and for no other reason

Reads – same subject topics

We love going to seminars

Vegetarian – he says we are a alive human beings – we eat alive food – Wow, totally on point!

Loves the outdoors, fun to be with, easy to be with, releases attachment to the outcome,

Full of surprises, finds places off the path to enjoy nature and to just absorb the warm Sunlight

A grateful human being

He says, look up, the Moon is magnificent!

He says, come, smell the roses, isn’t it lovely

Absorbs Life and Peace

Peaceful

We live together and share a home together

I respect and honor him

Appreciates – everything

Grateful – at all times, never endingly eternal

He is passionate about singing.  He loves to sing. 

All I wished is that I could sing and play an instrument. I can dance, but to dance, sing, and play all at the same time is heavenly. 

His voice is deep, heavenly, stirs up your inner soul.

I am forever grateful for the Universe bringing us together, at the perfect time, at the perfect time space realty, in this wonderful Universe, and in this wonderful body

He is perfect health

He is passionate, he is hard as a Rock

He is caring and considerate to all mankind and living things

I love him as I love myself and in alignment with my Source

We travel together in many interesting and exotic places

We create together, we are co-creators

We are flourishing and prospering

We spend summer together in different cities and in our vacation homes in many cities throughout the world

I share all I have with him and he shares all with me

I love him with all my heart and he reciprocates in kind

We are in alignment with our Source and that flows through harmoniously in this physical time space reality

Our sexual interaction is a symbol of co-creative harmony, brings to both of us indescribable pleasure and outside body experience at times

He touches me, my body shivers with pleasure

When we part, I am perpetually in anticipation for the next time we meet again

I allow him to be, the Art of Allowing, he allows me to be

When I say, I know you, you will always make your own decision, he would say I know.  My freedom is all my doing.  It is an agreement.

I get trust, because I give trust, the Law of Reciprocal Exchange.  When you are giving you are already receiving.

We love our Source Being, the Universe, the Tao.
