The power of appreciation! The better it gets, the better it gets!

One of the best ways to end one year and call in a powerful new one is through the power of appreciation. Appreciation is different from gratitude. Appreciation is the same vibration as love, says Abraham Hicks. When we are grateful we are usually grateful for having overcome something, therefore, we are including, in our thoughts, the vision of what we have overcome.

The more you practice appreciation the less resistance you have. The less resistance you have, the better your life will be. When there is no resistance, the things you desire will HAVE to flow into your life. The only thing between you and what you want is your resistance, your doubt, worry, fear, complaints or pessimism.

Be in a deliberate state of appreciation today. Go out of your way to appreciate others. See how deeply you can activate the vibration of appreciation in your body. When you feel tears of deep appreciation welling up you have reached it.

The holiday season is a perfect way to align yourself with the vibration of appreciation. Give holiday cards to as many people as you can and pour your appreciation on to them. What you give is what you get. I'll send you more tips on appreciation tomorrow.

I appreciate you and all of your loving support.
Go out there and appreciate life, others and your self.

7 Secret Principles to Thinner Peace The warrior declaration.

When I was in my 20's I was willing to do anything to lose weight.  I did diets, diet pills, drugs and exercised, at one point, up to 8 hours a day and somehow it was never enough.  Even though I was thin, I was depressed and constantly in fear of getting fat. Finally I had had enough. This book is written for anyone who wants thinner peace and  is no longer willing to simply go for thinner at any cost. It is also for those who want to embrace who they are physically and spiritual and live the life of a warrior not a worrier.

(In the last blog I talked about the difference between living as a warrior and not a whiner.  If you didn't read that post, scroll down and check it out. )

So how do you get serious about making that change from simply complaining or worrying to intending and  believing? Sati, mindfulness and intention.  The way we make a change is by bringing awareness into our life.  The fist step is noticing, without judgement,  how you feel and what you are doing? Are you happy, depressed, feeling good, alive?  Then take full responsibility for how you feel.

Once you take full responsibility for how you feel then take full responsibility for changing it. Own it, take your power and embrace it.  Remind yourself of it everyday

Then intend your future to be better, healthier and brighter.

One simple thing you can do is to read the warrior declaration everyday for 30 days.  And if you really want to get it into the fabric of your being, read it aloud and in the mirror first thing in the morning and last thing at night. This one very simple exercise is subtly powerful but only if you commit. Try it and see for yourself.  You will begin to notice the words popping up in your mind all day long and they will help guide you in making new choices which lead to a new you.


Today I stand as a warrior and I choose to be all I can be.
I stand for excellence in all areas of my life.  
I look for confidence and approval in my own heart and mind, and what you think of me makes no difference.
I know that it is ultimately how I feel about myself that gives me the experience of my life, and shame, guilt, regret, resentment are the most deadly of all opponents.  The only way they can be defeated is by absolute integrity, or the absence of contradiction between what I know, what I profess, and what I do. I know that when I lie to myself I am severed from my truth, which is my power, and an inharmonious relationship to my truth is deadly.

No one is born a warrior, just like no one is born an average man.  We make our selves that way by the accumulation of steps we take towards one or the other.  I know the power of my mind and I begin every journey confident of victory.  I am only defeated when I have accepted defeat, and the moment I turn my back on my self and my vision may be the moment I halt just short of my goal, and I will make useless all my previous efforts.  My work is to discover my work and with all my heart give myself to it, and by honoring this path I will achieve the greatest victory of all, a life of love, a life I love, and a life well lived. 
Today I choose the path of the warrior.

Change your mind, change your body, Change your life

There are two ways to look at things as a warrior or a worrier. Do you live with your attention on what you don't want or you are trying to avoid, or what you do want or are willing to welcome into your life.  Are you a worrier or a warrior?

Worrier or whiner
Complains about her weight more often than not
Talks about how he knows he is never going to lose weight
Thinks about going on a diet often but rarely follows through
Starts a diet but then gets off it and gains more weight than before
Prefers not to look in the mirror
When looking in the mirror looks at what he doesn't like
Talks about how hard it is to change
Worries about getting fat
Believes thin will bring happiness and thinner peace

Accepts where she is and takes responsibility to make a change
instead of talking about what he hates about himself focuses on the changes he wants to make
Looks for ways to stay inspired and motivated
Does not look for trendy new diets but ways to make healthy living a lifestyle
Values feeling good
Loves and values her body as her gift and is not only focused on thin at any cost
Knows that happiness is the way to thinner peace

Most often what I see is that those that are successful in creating a healthy lifestyle have more characteristics of the warrior then the worrier.  If you keep your attention on what you are trying to avoid instead of inspiring yourself by focusing on who you want to become, it will be very difficult to find thinner peace.

How will you know if you are being a warrior or a whiner? Notice how you feel.  If you make feeling good a daily intention and you notice when you are not feeling good you can be sure that it is what you are giving your attention to that is making the difference.  If you are complaining, criticizing or judging yourself, your situation or your body you will not feel good.  Be willing to let it go and choose something to appreciate or simply ask yourself, "is this thought supporting or interfering with my goal?"  If the answer is that it is interfering, do what you can to change it.  Give your attention to something else until you feel better, inspired, motivated or simply relief.

Change your mind, change your body, change your life!
Enjoy it,
