Today 5 years ago was the Transition of the Man who literally changed my life Dr Wayne W. Dyer.
Reading one of his books on a bus on the way back from London after spending an incredible day in Tate Britain I read the words “Don’t Die with Your Music still in you” and the story behind it .
The next day I started my blog and if you have seen my website alisonkparsons.com they are featured on the home page and cover banner on my Facebook page of the same name.
Now that music can come in any shape or form but means just share your gift with the world 🌎 .
I was meant to be spending an evening with Wayne Dyer in London on the 1st of October 2015 at a Hay House event and I was in London when I learnt of his passing after a glorious bank holiday weekend and I was back there the next day for work and while in the hotel I watched Wayne’s film below “The Shift”.
I admit I cried, I cried for Wayne, I cried for not seeing him in person and I cried for myself because of a scene in the film as my heart ached because I was not fulfilling that part of myself.
I can thankfully say less than 2 years later that part was fulfilled and then some and then some.
I can thankfully say I know longer sense that loss and My Passion is for no one else to feel it and die with their music still in them and that’s why today in honour of Wayne I share the full version of the film with you and hopefully it inspires to share YOUR music with the world 🌍 xoxo
Like most of us I thought the world had gone crazy on November 8th 2016.
I know it wasn’t perfect before November the 8th but I was loving the way the world was moving towards more equality and more loving and just more conscious.
So when I woke up on that fateful morning I hoped I was still asleep and it was all a horrible nightmare.
Luckily around the same time I was going through a stressful personal period and know enough now in my own consciousness to use tools to assist me to get through testing times and lucky for me indirectly the material I was listening to and reading was also the perfect material to help me through the media exposure that seems impossible to avoid.
I’m not a News watcher a Newspaper reader (understanding that it is peddled to manipulate our minds into negative, fearful, hateful opinions) but I am a Facebook follower and TV watcher so it is hard to be the Ostrich I try to be around negativity and to avoid even slight snippets of what is going on in the world today.
Two books I was reading were Wayne Dyer’s “You’ll See it When You Believe It” and Marianne Williamson’s “A Return to Love”. Thankfully Wayne reminded me that what we focus on expands, not dissipate. Regardless if it makes us feel good or bad and I am far from perfect ‘physically’ and have seen and heard things that feel abhorrent to me personally and causes a physical sensation in my stomach. As I said a combination of tools aimed at other areas assisted me with these sensations.
And one of those is a Dr Joe Dispenza Meditation I downloaded after completing his book “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” and in the meditation it has an exercise to notice when a familiar unpleasant feeling reoccurs you say the word “CHANGE” so being reminded by Wayne that if I get angry at these ‘apparent’ abhorrent actions all I am doing is exasperating the situation not eliminating it I haven’t participated in many of the actions I have seen taking place around the world. Instead I mentally have been stepping back, taking a deep breath then saying “CHANGE” to the feeling in my belly and then focusing on the person or thing that ‘so called’ created the unpleasant sensation to arise and then send it or them LOVE.
Marianne explicitly explained in her book how when someone acted in her life in a way that created immense anger in her she repeatedly said she forgave them and released them to the Holy Spirit and then Marianne details how this situation played out in a highly positive effective way and just reading it created a positive feeling in me so I have implemented this in my own life and the results have created exponential changes that I have seen magnify daily.
You may have noticed that I have placed certain words in a semicolon and that is because non-physically I have been reminded we are ALL perfect and this helps when sending love to the physical version of someone I feel upsets me or created a sensation in me by their actions. Amongst all this info it advised – imagine someone as a baby if you have trouble forgiving them because babies are perfect and it is hard to think of them being imperfect or doing something abhorrent and know when I act out unloving physically I am perfect non-physically and my unloving, fearful acts are gifts to me in the sense they are highlighting areas in my physicality that I still need to work on.
Early on in this post I wrote I was going through a difficult situation personally and I know enough now that there is something wrong in my thinking somewhere that attracted this so delved in harder than normal to work on this area, fed up of creating the same patterns over and over again throughout my life.
The perfect materials have constantly turned up and continue to turn up at the perfect time for my personal life and for what is going on in the wider world and some material I have never heard before or have read but never digested the true meaning and another word I highlighted was apparent because I truly grasped the fact that everything is happening just as it should be all the time even when it feels the opposite because it is painful or uncomfortable.
It may not make sense that something so terrible is happening but we may never know what the true purpose behind it is until a lot later if at all but how many times have we read people’s lives have changed because of a tragedy that completely changed their thinking or gave their lives true purpose or set them off on a mission to help others so other people didn’t have to suffer the same fate.
How many times have we heard those stories after positive experiences?
Taking this on board I have been able to take a step back mentally and remind myself I don’t know why this is really happening and everything is always perfect and then bless the situation.
The last two words I highlighted were ‘so called‘ because I accidentally came across two new people recently and one is Marisa Peer. You may have heard of Marisa and her work but Marisa had never crossed my awareness until a week ago and have watched several video’s on YouTube and have created new daily rituals because of it and in one Marisa explains how to deal with things that people say that could hurt you and describes it as ‘letting it in’ or rather advises not to ‘let it in’. This reminded me people can’t hurt us unless we let them. We have a choice to let their actions affect us or not.
Finally the other gem I have fallen upon accidentally is Christie Marie Sheldon and Christie explains how she can see energy blocks within us around various things but the things I have watched are mostly around blocks in receiving abundance. I mentioned earlier fed up of the same situations arising I decided to ‘Go hard or Go home’ on my difficult situations and maybe because my desire was more amplified than ever before I have come across more assistance and I am now grateful to the situation because it highlighted areas I still needed to work on and I am informed once you truly work on an area and solve it, it can’t return so hence my new philosophy to not judge anything just LOVE it.
And in Tribute to this and the fact that I went to an excellent Exhibition at the V&A Museum in London recently called Revolution and physically saw hand written lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and suits from Sargent Pepper and the Jacket worn by John Lennon on his ‘Imagine’ promo remember –
The other day I was feeling a little off focus, disconnected and I knew I needed to charge my spiritual battery.
With this acknowledgement where do I go? What do I do?
One of the quickest, easiest ways I have found just to start making myself feel better is Pam Grout’s blog. Easily and effortlessly Pam has the ability to remind me how great this Universe is but on this day with at least 3 posts to catch up on, it felt like Pam was posting just for me. These posts were more profound than a quick shot of happy adrenalin.
Sometimes Pam posts examples of the emails she receives from people thanking her and telling her of the amazing things that have happened to them following reading Pam’s books and acting on the advise and one of them made me think that’s the next step to charge this my physical battery …. get some shape action or in other words reread Pam’s books.
In amongst the blogs and what I reread within a few hours I was reminded by Pam that in our human physicality we ALL, regardless of how phenomenal we think someone is who seems to have it all going on get wrapped up in our 5 senses and let doubt, worry and fear grab us by the delicate areas and shake us around.
This is what led me to the place of realising I needing to take things to a higher level. Something happened to me and I let myself become completely overwhelmed by fear.
What I also realised whilst reading Pam was all the magnificent information that I had highlighted and then completely forgot about. Pam said it herself that even she goes all 5 senses now and again and has to keep working daily to put herself first and remind herself of the power we have at our disposal 24/7. She described it like training a puppy not to pee on your slippers. You have to take it outside and show it all the incredible unlimited magnificence of the Universe it has at it’s disposal.
That’s when it struck me. I need daily reminders to go beyond the 5. It’s not a one time underline and forget situation. If I really want to rock my physical world with joy, happiness and abundance and remember the non-physical assistance I (WE ALL) have at our disposal literally every second of our waking and non-waking time space continuum I need to puppy (toilet) train my brain.
I have a digital journal running on an app I use called Evernote that I can access on any device and syncs to all my other devices so at the start of each day I have made a tick list of things I aim to do that day. I know I can be a little control freak on myself and then probably give myself a mental kicking if I feel I have failed to achieve something so I have created a balance for myself buy accepting that I am not going to tick all the boxes in one day so what doesn’t get ticked gets deleted for that day but I still have a track record of what I have achieved that put me and my personal happiness at the top of the tree.
The ticks are things like read something inspirational for at least 30 minutes, listen to a pod cast, meditate, read my goal cards, yoga, write things I am grateful for.
The list is evolving all the time because if I think of something that maybe beneficial but acknowledge I will probably forget to do it I add it to the list. The other evening I watched a Facebook Live with Anita Moorjani and Anita reminded us that the most important purpose in our lives is to love ourselves and when we think of an opportunity we didn’t take etc we probably berate ourselves but we should love ourselves. I had been thinking a lot what if’s recently but because of Anita’s words I have been loving myself. Not a habit I wanted to get out of so on the list it went.
I was listening to a YouTube video the other day with Bob Proctor ‘You Were Born Rich’ number 4 (amazing) where he discussed writing down what you really want and meditating on it and reading it everyday. I am guilty of doing that ages ago and now forgetting where I wrote it so I wrote a new expanded version and placed it at the top of my daily electronic journal and copied and pasted it in to all the other subsequent days for the months and will transfer it when I get to January 2017 which is already made up as it was one of my tasks to do the other day.
If I have something bespoke to do that day that isn’t on the generic tick list I place it under the heading Actions and these actions are in red. When I have achieved the action I change it to black and at the end of the day for what ever reason I couldn’t get it done and it was still red I just cut and paste it for the next day as a reminder.
I may listen to an interesting Podcast hands free whilst driving but not the next day so delete podcast but I may listen to Bob Proctor whilst shaving my legs and getting dressed instead. I most definitely read something inspirational for at least 30 minutes most days and everything seems to have some beneficial takeaway and I have become far more productive and happier and less fearful from my brain Training. I even wrote 2 chapters in a book I have been writing for a while that hasn’t happened in months so I was buzzing.
I could go on forever with all the other things I feel I have learnt or achieved since creating my list but I’m going now to tick ‘Blog Post’ something else I haven’t done in ages until I put it on the list 🙂
Normally when I go to London I quite happily accept that the London way is bustle, bustle, push and push, especially on Tubes.
I was there this week and I have to admit it was slightly disconcerting at 08:30 in the morning after just arriving as you are getting off a tube and heading towards an escalator and hundreds off people were heading towards you coming off of escalators like a rampaging bull – Mumma !!!
With plenty of time I stood to one side and all was well, I wasn’t stampeded.
The following morning and my last day in London I waited patiently like I normally do and observed when even a short women desperately trying to get her child to school pushed passed my place in the tube ticket terminal queue by lifting my arm up and forcing her child through followed by herself and never even acknowledged my presence. Guess that’s how it has to be every day to get on with your day the London way, or is it.
Later that day I was more on deadline myself to get to on two different tubes to get me to Paddington station for my Train home. As the tube approached and it appeared full and not wanting to be in my usual situation where by everyone pushes past me and I am either doing the impression of a sardine with my face impressioned against the glass of the tube door or even worse pressed up against someones smelly armpit and as sometimes happens, actually left still standing on the platform I needed to rethink my approach.
I took a step closer to the train and then another step closer. I hadn’t pushed past anyone I had literally stepped forward in alignment from where I was previously stood and waited for the doors to open and the passengers to alight but I was ready, once the last person alighted I was in.
I was in perfect alignment with the train door and as I stepped up on to the Train a voice from the side of me said ‘There is no need to push”. How ironic I thought. I don’t think I have ever heard anyone speak to each other on a tube, they very rarely make eye contact and the first time I try a bit of dog eat dog boom I get the one person with the moral compass to speak out.
I had just been on a course where it spoke about Parent, Child, Adult how to react in situations or how we normally react instinctively.
I looked at the young man looking smug and smiling to himself and I felt compelled to reply to his comment. Calmly I pointed out that I am not local but whenever I come to the ‘Big Smoke’ (I didn’t actually use that terminology) due to my polite nature I am normally left standing on the platform whilst everyone else pushes passed me and today I thought I would change my tact and follow the London way. He replied it wasn’t the London way and words just fell out of my mouth and told him it was how it was every time I came here.
The conversation ended and everyone else appeared to adopt the normal stance of no eye contact, no speaking and normal service resumed.
I did however after have, maybe the weirdest thought “How would have Wayne Dyer handled that?”
The following morning I was not in work and had the luxury to do what I wanted and following advise from Oprah posted in regards to Thanks Giving chose some inspirational material to listen to before getting out of bed.
In the video Wayne practised kinesiology on one of the crew and I knew instantly what Wayne would have done and I knew what I would do if I had that experience over or in future.
If I had the situation over again I would have reverted to type and not stepped forward in the first place and waited calmly and patiently and avoided the whole situation and that thought felt right, felt good, felt like who I am and the essence of me.
This process of how thought affects the body as practiced through kinesiology in the Video stuck with me and how your body reacts via love and how it reacts via hate and revenge, I only wanted to think thoughts of LOVE and I set myself an experiment to go about my day and despite however anyone behaved I would always revert my thought back to LOVE.
I had to pay two separate visits to a supermarket and I was no angel. When I stood to one side to let people pass and they didn’t even acknowledge me it initially crossed my mind ‘What am I invisible here?’ but then I reminded myself think thoughts of love, think thoughts of love if only for your own best interests.
When queuing to get out of the car park and a man aggressively pulled out from behind someone else and tried to force his way into to the queue I was in I physically felt myself pull forward as did the guy in front of me as to try to stop him. I, then realising what I was doing relaxed and started letting people out one by one in front of me. I turned the music up on my car radio and thought ‘The longer I am here the more I get to enjoy these tunes’.
I checked the time it took to get out of the car park after letting several people out and it was 7 minutes in total. Not much in the grand scheme of things and I was far happier and calmer than the majority of people I recalled coming in to contact with throughout my day.
That’s why I feel I am and can relate to the ‘Happiest Penguin Ever’
We all have a choice and the power to attract in to our day the best experiences regardless of the situations or other poples reactions.
Have a great weekend and lets all be happy Penguin’s
Just because the news is doing what it does best. Focusing on negativity.
I saw this on social media and it made me feel good.
We can’t heal hate with more hate. We cannot eradicate fear by focusing on fear.
What we think about we bring about so lets bring about love and positivity and hope and faith and by watching something like this may raise our vibrations and open us to attract something beautiful and it feels like a good place to start
The other day I “accidentally” found the gift from God that is Elizabeth Gilbert.
I am having a girl crush with her. She says so much that makes sense and says it in a way that feels like I am literally having cream poured over my soul.
I could listen to her all day and all night just to hear her dulcet tones but have the added bonus of wisdom thrown in.
Her words to me just remind me that every one of us whilst actually being pieces of God and vessels as to channel that fact through have this constant battle with our physical selves that tell us that we are not worthy, what we do is not good enough, no-one will want to hear it or see it or read and I loved particularly the other day in the video that I posted that Liz openly admitted that her first book was not that good but hey it’s my first book it’s not going to be good.
She also talked of the pitfalls of perfectionism and how it stifles because we expect stuff to be perfect before we can share it – GUILTY !!
I was listening to Liz on a YouTube talk through my head phones before walking in to a particularly challenging day and that’s when I said to myself “This feels like Cream on my Soul” and then also thought ‘what if I screw up today, I’m new at this and I know I am trying my best and if I make a mistake to hell with it there are worse things going on in the world’
I also then remembered that I am a physical vessel for my non-physical self and the divine is in me all the time and there is nothing that I don’t have the answer to inside of me so how can it not go well? Bring it on !!
I haven’t been able to blog for a while or feel inspired too in truth but the main preoccupation of my thoughts are not the atrocities of Charlie Hebdo magazine but how people have reacted to it.
Yesterday I saw an article with tips about the Law of Attraction. To be honest it was nothing I hadn’t read before but I still read it in case there was something new and one of the suggestions that I have read in the past was not to listen to the news and since I read this I do avoid the news as much as I can but there are always moments when the news comes on the radio whilst in the car or on the morning TV Program which is exactly how I first heard of the events at Charlie Hebdo on the car radio and as I dressed for work and picked up snippets of various news reports on AM TV my thoughts weren’t on hate for these people, my thoughts were to send out LOVE to all humanity.
It was instinctive but it wasn’t always like that.
Initially when I read material and advise about not judging people that carry out actions that are hard to comprehend I would have to work at this not judging people, practising unconditional love, to remember that at the true 99.99% level of who we are, we are all perfect and had to keep working at it but I think it was when I read something recently that struck me, that my instinctive act of LOVE originated from.
Part of the information was using an analogy about feeling poor and hard done by and looking at wealthy people and thinking ‘Look at them, why do they get all the money? Why am I so poor? I hate that they are so rich and I am so poor …. ra ra ra etc etc’ and explaining by these actions all you are doing is keeping yourself poor because you are focusing your powerful thoughts on your poverty and therefore attracting more poverty to yourself and by looking at their wealth you are actually make them wealthier. I have blogged about this recently but in this situation I was thinking if I hate these people for what they have done or get angry all I will be doing is perpetuating hate and creating even more anger in the world and the only way we are going to solve the problems of our world is through LOVE and putting our attention on LOVE and our attention on the things we love and taking our attention away from the things we don’t love. If we get angry etc all we’ll be doing is perpetuating the thing we hate and want to obliterate so nothing gained.
This morning in the background I heard a news reporter discussing yesterday being at the Rally in Paris and how what they experienced was a celebration of Joy and Unity. Hearing that made my heart sing.
A few months ago I blogged about my own personal perception that I felt there was a Shift happening in humanity. What I have read since that post was I am not alone or actually I needed to wake up Sister because this bandwagon has been rolling for quite a while. From the snippets of news I have seen or heard and things I have seen on social media all I am seeing from this situation in Paris is ‘Solidarity’ ‘Unity’ people of various faiths standing together. People showing acts of love in various ways. Stories of selfless acts and heroism. Situations that arose because of what happened in Paris last week.
My picture above was saved from a post I saw on Social Media related to a Charlie Hebdo.
Part of my morning ritual is to pick something inspiring to listen to from YouTube and on the morning that I decided to send my LOVE to all humanity and beyond afterwards I randomly picked Gregg Braden talking about the power of our hearts. In the video Gregg discussed a tool that scientists can use to measure how far our heart radiates outside of us which was several feet and added saying that it doesn’t mean that the radiation or effects of it stop there it is just that the tool cannot measure any further than this distance currently and in fact whose to say the potential of how far our hearts can reach? It could be infinite.
Just think of the potential of that and how we could affect the world, that in any given situation we automatically sent LOVE out in to the world.
I read once we can never know what is at the Source of an experience, the true purpose, bigger picture therefore we shouldn’t judge.
Today has not been a comfortable day to go through and I have been doing my darndest to stay positive or look for the gifts wrapped in Sandpaper (as Lisa Nichols) would call them.
I work with a couple of people who are not pleasant (down right devious, there I’ve said it amongst other things) and appear to be made of Teflon.
Yesterday I copied something I saw online and aimed to put it into practice but today it was hard (Am I being tested?)
When you can look beneath their behavior that hurt you and you can see the frightened child – it becomes nearly impossible to be angry and carry a grudge.
I do have a little light on the horizon and I am playing all secret squirrel about it at the moment but I Am only in the first steps of setting it up, not in a position to say ‘Whatever, I’m out of here’ YET !!
Because of this I felt is it really worth looking for another job then I remembered listening to a Wayne Dyer video on YouTube the other day and Wayne explained how he admitted being anxious and humbled about doing a public television presentation and then he said he just released it as said “God Guide me”.
This part of the presentation came back into my mind when I was asking myself do I stay or do I go and I too said “God guide me” then immediately said Thank You – ask and it is given remember.
As I planned to leave for the day something held me up and I quickly went into an office to see a friendly colleague. These extra few unplanned minutes meant that I then excited the building at the very moment one of the Teflon people were un-incriminating themselves by incriminating me. I know I have nothing to worry about because judging what I heard I have the documentation to back myself up but it’s just so energy draining having to do so unnecessarily and then it hit me. Was I meant to see this? Is the thought and words ‘Energy Draining’ the message I needed to say time for a fresh start?
When I got home I decided my plan was to follow my instincts and find the best feeling thought and another and another to raise my energy.
I read recently by several authors all at once that whatever happens you owe it to yourself to look for the best feeling thought in any situationto keep your energy high. The Universe can’t bring miracles to you if your energy is low. I also remembered to remember we never know what the plan is so trust that this is all happening for a reason. That thought instantly made me feel better.
The next instinctive thought was to have a cup of coffee and some fruit and download some meditation apps I seen recommended in a magazine. Suitably calmed the next thought was to play the rest of the ‘Sex in The City’ episode that I recorded as we were leaving the house the other day. Now I have nothing against ‘Sex in The City’ but I have never been an avid follower but something made me decide to record the rest of the episode that just came on the TV as I was getting ready.
At the end it was all lovely and happy ending’s all round, Big came to Paris to find Carrie (get to see land marks of my two favorite cities, bonus all round) and then at the end instead of the normal sound track they played “You’ve got the Love” by ‘The Source’ Ft Candi Staton. I LOVE this track and have turned to it in the car on many occasions in the long and distant past but for some reason when I heard the first few lyrics I just burst into tears, uncontrollable tears but it wasn’t tears of sadness, it felt Goooooooddd !! A Source (boom boom) of release.
And so apt a song when earlier I had asked “God guide me !!
In the practice of “Growing a Greater me” (See Greg Kuhn books) and from advise from many, many, many books I have read, when I wake before I even open my eyes or even contemplate getting out of bed I say things (in my head) like ‘Today is going to be the best day of my life’ or ‘Thank you for such and amazing day’. I also give thanks for random things that pop in my head but another practice I have been doing more and more is sending LOVE out into the Universe particular anyone that tends to make my life more complicated than it needs be. Instead of getting frustrated or anxious about them or my day, I send the particular individuals LOVE, then everyone, then everything, trees, birds, plants etc and then the whole flipping Universe and talking of flipping, if my friends and family read this they would think I’ve flipped, but do I care?
Do I flipping eck’s as like !! (English colloquialism meaning NO !!”)
Shortly after claiming today is the best day of my life as I snoozed the alarm on my phone I caught sight of an email saying good news about my lottery ticket, so there you go see not even stepped out of bed and it’s great. However my partner on the other hand sat on the edge of the bed and mumbled about how much he hated having to get out of bed. Me in my secret happiness (not knowing if we were millionaires, but being grateful if it was £2) said “That’s not very half glass full from Mr always Half glass full type of person” he replied “I don’t feel like being a half glass full person today”. Whilst he was in the bathroom and deciding not to be deterred from my happiness I went to my music player on my phone and found Nina Simone “Feeling Good” and pressed play. He poked his head out of the bathroom and looked around for the sound and shook his head at me in mock? disapproval as I made the bed ‘Happily’ but as the tunes continued to play his mood improved and made me laugh hysterically with his dancing to Curtis Mayfield ‘Move on Up‘ and he left the house in a decidedly better mood than when he woke.
The other day I came across the statement ‘Damaged Souls’ and I thought, NO soul is damaged, all souls are perfect, there are only ‘Disconnected Souls’. This helped me with people I found challenging. To look at them differently, know that behind the disconnectedness their formless part, the real, largest part of them, the 99.99% of who they and we ALL are is perfect.
Earlier I read a bit of Wayne Dyer “You’ll See it When You Believe IT” (revisiting old material) about some suggestions for personal transformation and the first recommendation was – Try to see yourself and others in formless ways and another suggestion was – Observe how others destroy their potential for happiness and success because they identify exclusively with their form. Completely reiterating my feelings the other day.
When I came home I saw a perfect example of this and thought how or I wish I could help this person. They are having a really unpleasant time at the moment which they are cataloging on Face book day after day, and day after day the negative situations are snowballing as they focus only on these unpleasant events, they are completely unaware in line with The Law of Attraction they are self perpetuating their own circumstances. I honestly don’t know I could help as I feel they would not accept this if I spelt it out to them, so my only action at present was to post positive quotes via my wall in hope that they will be struck by one, or more.
I then saw a long post by the formidable Wayne Dyer about a book he had recently ‘Felt’ and been invited to write the forward too. I have blatantly what would be in Face book terms, Fraped the post but it related so much to my mood. The book is called “Nurturing Healing Love” http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/140194423X/hayhousecom-20 but as it stated in the post that a portion of the proceeds go to a good cause I Am sure he won’t mind. This quote from Jesus struck me: “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
Thinking about it I ‘FEEL’ so much better with my life as is stands today via always aiming to ‘Grow a better ME !!’ and sending LOVE where there could be darkness. Sometimes you have to just manufacture your own happiness and in the words of Saint Francis of Assisi via Wayne Dyer in his amazing Face book post “Where there is darkness, let me bring light.”
On a mission to help others create a life of freedom and joy using the Law of Attraction
