What If? The Movie – Clip 2

clip-2.jpgTwo days ago I was very pleased to present a short clip from the new movie What If? The Movie. This full-length movie has just been released this week, on DVD and for viewing online.

In today’s clip, Dr Joe Dispenza, a neuroscientist and chiropractor, talks about how the things we think can influence our bodies.

What If? The Movie

WhatIf.jpgI was so excited I nearly fell off my chair. My heart was thumping. I had just discovered What If? The Movie. It is two hours long and is available now, on DVD and to watch online. Other versions are coming.

On the movie’s website the question is posed:

What if you held the key to unlocking the greatest discovery of mankind?

How To Find Happiness

We find real happiness by sensing our intuitive impulses and acting upon them.

That’s it, there is no other way.

My point is that this process is individual. It won’t be the same for any two people. We sense our intuition deeply inside ourselves—it’s deeply personal. Only we know what our intuition feels like, and only we know what we need to do to act on it, and how we feel about that.

How A Lot Of Wind Changed My Plans

Fortunately for you, this post is not about my digestive system…

…but is about how I followed my intuition even though it went against the grain, and things worked out for the best.

The photo above was taken at our local shops! Ten minutes walk from our house. I found it on a Melbourne newspaper’s website, the day a huge wind storm hit most of the state (Victoria, Australia), earlier this year.

Ice And Global Warming

A little while ago I had a mini “Iceberg Series”, and I thought I’d finish it off with a post about REAL icebergs. The other posts in the iceberg series are On Overcoming Obstacles followed by Think And It Shall Be So.

Many people are concerned about global warming, polar ice and sea levels, so I thought I’d write about some of the things I discovered about these when I was writing books about climate for the 8 to 10 years age group, over last (Australian) summer.

I am not covering the causes and extent of climate change here—that is done very well elswhere. This is just about the ice.

Insects Versus Mother Theresa

QUESTION:

Who contributes the most to the world, humanity and everything…

A person who spends their whole life alone studying an obscure insect in the forest, and no-one ever finds out about it,

OR

A metaphorical Mother Theresa?

Think And It Shall Be So

I like to work with the idea that we create our reality with our thoughts. This is what makes the most sense to me, and is the way of looking at things that I find most useful.

This post extends my previous one, On Overcoming Obstacles. Perhaps I could call these posts “The Iceberg Series”! A part of this theory is that the mind is analogous to an iceberg… a small part is on the surface and accessible, and most of it is submerged.

Letting Creativity Just Slip In

I had a conversation with my mother the other night about the creative process, and I thought ah-hah!… I could write about this.

She was saying how she came up with a poem about apples a few years ago, while driving through apple orchards and then on homewards (she lives in the country). As she kept driving the poem came bit by bit… she said that the words “just slipped in”.

I thought that was a great way of putting it, and it’s how it happens with me, too. Then I was thinking about how I set things up to allow those words and ideas to “just slip in”. Being still or meditative in some way is necessary, but I’ve also noticed that if I provide a structure for my creative product, the goods are more likely to come to me.

Gratitude And Miracles

hiker.jpgRecently Marelisa from Abundance Blog at Marelisa-Online wrote a great article about gratitude over at The Change Blog.

This gave me the idea of looking up The Door of Everything by Ruby Nelson, because I remembered it had something about gratitude. The Door of Everything is a channelled book, authored by “the guiding voice of Father consciousness at the centre of your soul”.

The chapter The Ascension Attitudes explains that love, praise and gratitude are the “keys to the kingdom of true Being”. It says these three attitudes are in fact inseparable, and suggests we could concentrate on all three or just one if we find it more natural. I found this about gratitude:

The vibration of gratitude is such a mighty creative force that it alone, if indulged continuously, could uplift you free of the sub-creation more rapidly than you realize.

I thought I’d try focusing on feeling grateful as much as possible—firstly for all the usual suspects like the house, Frank and my computer. Then I added in things like the ground I was walking on, the air I was breathing and the blue sky. All of this definitely inspired a warm glow, and I felt I was on target for being seriously uplifted.
