Saturday Morning Seminars
3. Creating Your Vision Board (Live Training Jan. 6, 2024)
Join the party on January 6, 2024, from 1:00pm to 2:30pm Eastern.
Can't attend the live training - Click Here for a quick video on how to create your vision board on your own time.
If you took the class on Creative Visualization, you know that we are controlled by our subconscious mind, and you learned how to reprogram it to manifest your desired results. This session will intensify that process by having you create your vision board and teaching you how to use it.
The old school approach, still very powerful, is to cut out pictures from a magazine and paste them onto a large presentation board. This board would then be placed on a wall in your home so you would see it often and the images would be imprinted upon your subconscious, conveying to your subconscious, this IS what you want to create, your new realty, your new normal. The subconscious does not know the difference between fantasy and reality, so if it thinks this IS your new reality, it will adjust the programming to comply. Which means, it will stop holding you back, trying to keep you safe from venturing out and experiencing a broader life.
Today, many utilize technology to create vision boards. Canva.com is not only easy to use but offers free tools and can be a lot of fun. When you create a digital Vision Board online, you can take it with you everywhere by way of your cell phone, laptop or other devices. You can also print it out and post it on a wall in your home as well. Join us for the upcoming session on creating or updating your vision board, or Click Here for a 10-min video on how to use Canva.com and create your vision board right away!
4. The Power of Affirmations (Live Training Jan. 13, 2024)
Join us on January 13, 2024, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm Eastern.
There are negative as well as positive affirmations. An affirmation is whatever you affirm for yourself. Negative affirmations would be something like, "I'm too fat," "I can't," "I'm broke," "I hate." You get the picture. Positive affirmations would sound something like, "I love my body," "I can do anything," "I love." You get the picture.
Whatever you say to yourself, or to another, the subconscious thinks you are talking to YOU. So if you say, "I hate you" to someone, guess what? Your subconscious directs that energy towards YOU. Another way the Universe teaches us that we are all one.
To create a positive affirmation:
Keep it sweet, short and simple.
State it in present tense. Not I want, but I have.
Most powerful when you attach "I Am" or "I Have" at the beginning.
Join us for this live training to begin creating some positive affirmations for yourself and learn how to use them more effectively. YES, they work!!!
5. Meditation for Transformation (Live Training Jan. 20, 2024)
Join on January 20, 2024, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm Eastern.
If you're new to meditation, know that there are various styles and ways to meditate. Meditation is basically a quieting of the mind so that you may focus better. Some direct their focus on getting closer to God, teachings of the Buddha, or simply to release stress and find greater inner peace. There is no right or wrong way to quiet your mind for greater focus. The point is to find what works best for you.
The two popular styles of meditation are passive meditation and active meditation. Passive is a sitting meditation, while active meditation is movement. It would be any activity that focuses the mind, such as yoga, tai chi, running, drumming, dancing, twirling. Whatever puts your mind at peace and allows you to loose track of time, where you loose a sense of self and dissolve into a sea of oneness with Universal flow.
This session is about passive meditation for transformation. To prepare, you would find a quiet place where you can sit (don't lay down) and not be disturbed for at least 15-20 minutes each day. If possible, it should be the same time and same space each day. Many like to enhance their meditation experience with aromatherapy, incense, candlelight, soft background music, etc. The point is to find your sacred space and make it your own. Then commit to sitting each day. You might call this your appointment with Spirit each day. It is said that one minute in meditation is equal to one hour of productivity. It is also said that if you don't have 10-minutes to meditate, you should meditate for an hour.
In this session, you will get to experience a guided meditation that you will be able to repeat on your own. You can also find other guided meditations in our Meditation Room for you to enjoy.
At lease once a year you are encouraged to do the 30-Day Meditation Challenge. Other times to do the challenge might be anytime you need to feel stronger, more empowered, more confident!
