Autopilot

I have been reading and writing about the law of attraction for many years. It’s funny how one thinks one has understood every aspect of something until one discovers more. It made sense to me from the very first time I listened to an audio tape by Esther Hicks. Since then, I have had many […]

It Is What It Is

Or is it? I guess IT is different for everybody. It is what one perceives, and it is what one creates. What’s the difference between perception and creation? Focus. I think it is a good attitude to accept what is – what I perceive – rather than putting all energy into denying or fighting or […]

Name the Color, Blind the Eye

A good scientist almost has to have two personalities. He has to think logically, be meticulous and focused. He cannot make claims he cannot prove. At least, he shouldn’t. He should be able to explain and prove his thesis within the logical framework of today’s science, or else he’ll be called a quack. That describes […]

Klunks

I try not to use the C-word. It invokes so much fear and anxiety. The diagnosis must feel like a death sentence. I call the dreaded disease klunks. The common belief is that people carry it in their genes and there is nothing they can do about it. We can kill the out-of-control cells but […]

Butterflies and Bats

About the law of attraction again. We attract things, circumstances, people and experiences by focusing on them. It’s a tricky thing though because it doesn’t matter whether we focus on it in a positive or negative way. Saying yes and saying no to something has the same effect. Focus is focus. We get what we […]

Undercurrent

I thought I was pretty good at recognizing and controlling my thoughts. When I find myself feeling scared or sad or mad, I usually remember to check right away what kind of thoughts I was thinking a moment earlier. Most of the time, I can lift my mood just by understanding the correlation and directing […]

Parallel Realities

I have this little trick that has saved me many times from going crazy with fear and worry. I know that a fearful thought can quickly get out of control and grow into panic. The longer I think about something I fear, the worse it looks and the more likely it seems to become reality. […]

The News

  I learned to turn off the news many years ago. It wasn’t easy, given that I used to be a news junkie. They used to be the last TV program I watched before I went to bed. I don’t know how and when exactly I stopped. Maybe listening to Abraham Hicks teachings and learning […]

We Are Responsible

Attention to something is like fertilizer. It grows, or at least the experience of it does. The news media, how and what they report and their influence on society and individuals’ minds is a sad but perfect example. Ratings are the driving force behind their choice of what kind of news they broadcast and even […]
