Ima Sumac Watkins Offering a Meditation and Intuition Tele-class

Ima Sumac Watkins Offering a Meditation and Intuition Tele-class

Having experienced Ima’s insights, talents, and counseling one-on-one, I’m looking forward to participating in this course. If you missed my interview with Ima Sumac Watkins on The Writestream, click below to listen and learn more about this fabulous woman and her life-changing services.

As noted in the interview, lately I’ve been studying the works of Florence Scovel Shinn. I’d heard of her years ago through my attendance at Unity Church in Delray Beach, where Reverend Nancy Norman often referenced her in sermons. Last year, I found her books on audio on You Tube and started listening repeatedly. Recently, I ordered her complete works in paperback and have been actively reading and taking notes every day.

Due to Shinn’s conversational writing style and ability to explain these concepts in a down-to-earth, humorous way, her books and affirmations resonate with me unlike any previously. There have been many worthy teachers (in the form of real people and books) along the way, so I’m not diminishing anyone else. I’ve learned and continue to gain lessons from all of them. It’s just that at this time, Florence Scovel Shinn seems to speak to me like no other. I highly recommend reading and studying her complete works.

And, if you, like me, also wish to talk with a contemporary practitioner, give Ima a call to register for her tele-class. Learn more about Ima Sumac Watkins at www.About.Me/iwatkins.

Review – Leslie Sansone: Walk It Off in 30 Days

When I purchased Leslie Sansone’s You Can Do Yoga, I also got Leslie Sansone: Walk It Off in 30 Days as part of my effort to mix strength training in with cardio and stretching. I’d resisted (so to speak) the idea of getting back into resistance training, but thanks to my participation in a group comprised of motivated, health-minded women, I felt inspired to give it a go.

LeslieSansone_WalkItOffLeslie does not disappoint in this DVD, which alternates aerobic days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) with toning days (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday). It’s both a departure from and an extension of her previous efforts, featuring familiar moves like skater, double side step, knee lifts, and cha-cha on the “burn” track. However, she and her team of walkers also use 3-pound wrist weights to enhance the workout as they switch back and forth from brisk walking to “boosted” walking. In a few places along the way, they also “bounce” to increase heart rate.

If you’re into squats, you’ll love the toning track of this DVD. Leslie spends most of the workout on variations of squats while using weights (right now I’m using 5-pounders) to execute moves including rowing, chest press, and bicep curl. For those who are new to squats, she talks you through the entire segment, making it easy to modify and build up your strength as you go. It definitely takes your workout to a much deeper and more difficult level, but even after just two weeks, I’ve noticed significant progress. Overall, I feel stronger and have observed muscle definition in the legs, arms, and abs (thanks to a grueling, final sequence of curls, crunches and even a Pilates move). She follows up the ab workout with a nice stretch on the hands and knees where you extend one leg back and the opposite arm straight out in front, then switch.  The toning workout ends with an wonderful stretch where you lie on your back with arms out over your head, and legs slightly apart with feet flexed — the perfect reward for hanging in and getting it done.

When my schedule allows, I workout once in the morning and once in the afternoon, alternating Walk It Off with You Can Do Yoga, since each session is only 30 minutes. But Leslie sure knows how to make every minute count! If you want to kick up your exercise regimen a notch, I highly recommend Leslie Sansone: Walk It Off in 30 Days.  I’ll check back in with a progress report in two more weeks.

Leslie Sansone: You Can Do Yoga – A Review

Although the Leslie Sansone: You Can Do Yoga DVD was released in 2012, I just purchased it a few weeks ago from Amazon.com and started using it this past Sunday. From the beginning, I was addicted! Having taken Yoga classes in the past (decades ago) as a means of dealing with panic and anxiety, and, more recently, on the beach with my good friend Britt, I was already familiar with the basic Yoga moves.

However, Leslie’s down-to-earth manner, clear instruction, and well-organized routines make the daily practice of Yoga simple and enjoyable. On the first track, she takes the time to demonstrate and explain each pose that will be incorporated into a free-flowing routine on the second track — setting up her viewers for success. Furthermore, she stresses the importance of breathing normally, explaining that the the first step in mastering Yoga is to learn the poses; the rest can come later. That was a relief to me, since in my past experience with real-life classes, it was difficult to combine the advanced Yoga breathing (breath of fire, etc.) with the actual moves.

For those who love her Walk at Home Fitness DVDs, she also includes a track that integrates Yoga with walking and features two of her popular walkers. If you’re seeking to expand and enhance your fitness regimen with Yoga, I highly recommend Leslie Sansone: You Can Do Yoga.

The Science of Getting Rich: Excerpts from Chapter 16

In light of current events, specifically the Theater of the Absurd 2016 Election, this passage jumped out at me this morning as I conducted my daily ritual of gratitude and evidence journaling, studying, and envisioning (more on that in another post):

Many people will scoff at the idea that there is an exact science of getting rich; holding the impression that the supply of wealth is limited, they will insist that social and governmental institutions must be changed before even any considerable number of people can acquire a competence.

But this is not true.

It is true that existing governments keep the masses in poverty, but this is because the masses do not think and act in the Certain Way.

If the masses begin to move forward as suggested in this book, neither governments nor industrial systems can check them; all systems must be modified to accommodate the forward movement.

If the people have the Advancing Mind, have the faith that they can become rich, and move forward with the fixed purpose to become rich, nothing can possibly keep them in poverty.

Individuals may enter upon the Certain Way at any time, and under any government, and make themselves rich; and when any considerable number of individuals does so under any government, they will cause the system to become so modified as to open the way for others.

The more people who get rich on the competitive plane, the worse for others; the more people who get rich on the creative plane, the better for others.

The economic salvation of the masses can only be accomplished by getting a large number of people to practice the scientific method set down in this book, and become rich. These will show others the way and inspire them with a desire for real life, with the faith that it can be attained, and with the purpose to attain it.

For the present, however, it is enough to know that neither the government under which you live, nor the capitalistic or competitive system of industry can keep you from getting rich. When you enter upon the creative plane of thought, you will rise above these things and become a citizen of another kingdom.

If you are seeking to partner with those on the same mission in terms of manifesting a fulfilling life in every way – wealth, health, and relationships, visit The Science of Getting Rich Academy.
