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.

Tuesday Motivation: The Magic of Changing Your Thinking

Tuesday Motivation: The Magic of Changing Your Thinking

I highly recommend listening to this recording of the book The Magic of Changing Your Thinking by Kate Corbin on the You Are Creators channel on YouTube.

From Kate Corbin’s bio:

Motivated by an intense desire to unravel the mysteries of life, and with a deep inner knowing that it IS possible to be happy, I’ve been a life-long seeker of wisdom and truth. As a child, I remember asking the big what’s-it-all-about questions. Unable to find anyone with satisfying answers, I set out in search of wisdom.

My journey called me to look fear in the face and stare it down, feel sorrow and rise above it, bump up against defeat and insist on victory. When my search brought me to Abraham-Hicks and the Law of Attraction, I knew I had found the treasure.

Having embraced the life-enhancing principles of the Law of Attraction, I find myself in an entirely new Universe – a Magical Universe where dreams really do come true, where Life itself is a pure joy and where, truly, All is Well. Now, as a Law of Attraction Coach, it is my pleasure and my privilege to share these Universal life principles with YOU.

Since I work independently at home most days — save for regularly scheduled in-person and Skype meetings with clients — I tend to keep uplifting, motivating and informative books and music playing the background. Even if I’m not actively listening, my subconscious mind is.

As W.D. Wattles notes in his book, The Science of Getting Rich, the hardest work in the world is keeping the mind aligned with positive thoughts in spite of appearances. Thanks to new technology and the free sharing of information, we can support our efforts to control our own minds by actively and inactively listening to authors and coaches who are dedicated to promoting spiritual principles.

The Game of Life and How to Play It

The Game of Life and How to Play It

I recently discovered the book, The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn (1925), via the You Are Creators channel on YouTube.

GameofLifeBookIn his editorial review on Amazon, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale states, “The Game of Life is filled with wisdom and creative insights. That its teachings will work I know to be fact, for I’ve long used them myself.”

Much like The Science of Getting Rich by W.D. Wattles, The Game of Life and How to Play It explains the metaphysical principle of thoughts becoming things (because thoughts invoke a feeling/vibration), and Universal Laws including the Law of Attraction, the Law of Substitution, and The Law of Cause and Effect.  While many today would consider this New Age,  The Game of Life and How to Play It was published in 1925. Shinn, an American artist and book illustrator, became a New Thought teacher in her middle years, following in the footsteps of others like Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, co-founders of Unity Church.

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.
