Can Positive Thoughts Be Magical?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Some months ago I noticed a new plant growing beside the cluster of plants by the patio outside of my office.  I loved the leaves of this mystery plant and wondered what kind of plant it was.

Our Goldenrod

Then finally the plant grew golden yellow tops that look sort of like mini Christmas trees flocked in golden yellow. Now I was even more curious to know the identity of this plant.

And believe it or not, just days later, I got my answer. As I was reading the Houston, Texas newspaper, I spotted a picture with a couple of different types of plants.

The picture was in an article about gardening.  Looking at the picture I was drawn to the plant in the background. “That looks like the plant growing by my patio!” I said to myself. I was excited! Underneath the picture the caption told me that the plant in the background was goldenrod.

How Can You Get Positive Thoughts Started?

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Sometimes it’s really challenging to think positive thoughts…. Wouldn’t you agree?

So, what can you do to help yourself?

One of the ways I do that is to listen to teleseminars about laws of attraction, personal development and/or spirituality. Here’s what I learned from listening to one of them.

Marci Shimoff, author of Happy for No Reason, learned from Dr. Michael Beckwith to go outside barefooted on the earth or grass for a couple of minutes each day. While outside imagine that your core center is the connecting place for Heaven’s light from above and the light of Mother Earth radiating from below.


To get the full impact of just how important this practice is, let me tell you what Marci also said.

Are You Allowing The Laws of Attraction to Help You?

Are You Allowing The Laws of Attraction to Hel...

The other day I caught myself being guilty of the very thing my husband had recently been discussing. I wasn’t using the Laws of Attraction to help me. But more on my guilt later…

Brian had told me that he got upset when he was helping a friend, Bill, move some office equipment using a dolly.

Why did he get upset?

Because as Brian tried to guide the dolly for Bill, he heard Bill angrily say, “Don’t try to manage me!”

And as the day progressed, Brian heard Bill tell him those words again and again as he tried to help Bill.

Ouch! How words can hurt, especially when said in anger… by a friend you’re trying to help.

So, Brian was hurt, and he told me about the incident when he came home. He wasn’t so sure he wanted to continue his friendship with Bill… Bill seemed too full of negativity, and Brian didn’t feel appreciated.

Next day Brian went again to continue helping Bill.

And you know what Brian did?

Could This Yoga DVD Be Your Key to Serenity?

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

It was in 1998 that I began one of the most difficult challenges of my life. What began as a large ugly red spot on the top of my left hand turned into something I would never have imagined.

Because my husband urged me to go to a doctor, I finally did. But I was reluctant to go. I was pretty sure the ugly spot was eczema, and I knew that medical doctors prescribe steroid creams for such things.

My brother Robert had warned me about steroids. He suffered from eczema on his hands for many years and had studied remedies and their effects.

What I remember him saying was that at first the steroid creams work well. But continued use just makes the eczema worse.  So he chose to use natural remedies.

What should I do?

With Robert’s  words in mind I chose to go to my allergist rather than a dermatologist. And I ended up with a steroid cream prescription. So I used the cream, and it was working well.

And then the eczema got worse…much worse… and  it spread to my right hand.

It was months later, and we had a holiday weekend trip planned. The eczema was so bad that I wrapped my hands in gauze because the skin on my hands was so raw.

So on Labor Day weekend we were in Corpus Christi, Texas. My husband insisted on taking me to the emergency room to get my hands checked. Although I was fortunate to be free of pain, we endured a long wait for patients with urgent needs to be treated.

Have you ever had to wait in an emergency room?…

Finally, I got my turn. The emergency doctor recommended an antibiotic to prevent infection, so I recited a long list of antibiotics to which I was allergic. He then prescribed an antibiotic which wasn’t on my list.

And I faithfully took the pills.

Several nights later, back in Houston, I had an allergic reaction to those pills…..not a severe reaction… just a rash, but I was a bit worried about it. So my husband drove me to a clinic that was open at night.

At the clinic I told the doctor what had happened. His remedy was to give me a cortisone shot. I told him that I was reluctant to take any more steroids because of my experience using steroid creams.

But he assured me that this is what’s best for my situation, and he would give me a low dose.

Well, he was a medical doctor, far more educated than I was about the human body. So I accepted his remedy.

Did I make the right choice?
