Deepak Chopra and A Mind-blowing Experience

More than fifteen years ago, Brian and I traveled through South India with Deepak Chopra and a dozen friends.

One of the highlights of our journey was to experience a “palm leaf reading” also known as a Nadi reading, where a priest and an interpreter found our life history written in ancient Tamil, on a palm leaf.

These forecasts were created thousands of years ago by a Sage and include everything from your name, your life history with extraordinary details, your past life info that impacts your karma in this life (for instance I didn’t have kids in this life because in my last life I was a healer and performed illegal abortions!).

You also discover what is predicted for all the years you have left on the earth including how, when, and where you will die . (Learning that part is optional!)

Deepak had experienced a Nadi reading the year before he took us and he was blown away by the process and the accuracy. One small tidbit from his reading was that learned the name his mother was born with, a family secret he never knew that turned out to be true! He was also given additional life direction he had not previously considered and put that into action and was very pleased with the results.

These readings have information that cannot be found on the internet and the priests who do the readings, don’t read or write English. We were in a remote forest, six hours from the next city, in a concrete block room with a single light bulb over head and no other electronics, and an outhouse!

It all begins by providing your thumbprint. With that thumbprint (they do not know your name or date of birth, just whether you are male or female) a search begins for the bundle of palm leafs that may contain your leaf.

At my first in-person reading in the forest, my reader/priest was named Ravi and my translator was Babu. It took about 45 minutes before Ravi finally had the right leaf for me. (That was about the average time it took for most of us).

We knew he had the right leaf because it contained the names of my parents and husband (all badly mispronounced – imagine hearing Sheila and Harvey in “hinglish”), they told me my name was Arielle (that is not the name I was born with, I was so shocked I asked them to show me which marking on the leaf represented “Arielle”) and included that I was born early on a Monday morning (which even I didn’t know ‘till I got home and looked it up), that I have a younger brother & sister and that my father had two wives (all of which is true) and then proceeded to give me extreme details about the remainder of my life including the kind of work I do, business things to beware of, dates for auspicious things to do, upcoming physical ailments, all of which happened even though I had forgotten about them till I checked my notes years later.

Over the years many people have wanted to have Nadi readings but unless you went to South India and had a connection to the “right” readers, it was impossible.

A few months ago I met an amazing man who has now found a way to provide Nadi readings from South India via Zoom. I recently had a reading and it was just as real and authentic and mind-blowing as my in person reading. I was astounded by the amount of details I was given about what is happening now and in my coming days. They knew stuff about some of my thinking that I haven’t even shared with Brian yet!

Is there a leaf for everyone? No. However, if this is something you are interested in, they will search for your bundle (which can take a month or two), and if it is not found, they will refund your deposit.

Learn more all about it below and then decide if it’s right for you.

MetaHuman

by Deepak Chopra

This book unlocks the secrets to moving beyond our present limitations to access a field of infinite possibilities and become METAHUMAN — to move past the limitation constructed by the mind and to enter a new state of awareness in which we have deliberate and concrete access to peak experiences that can transform people’s lives from the inside out.

For centuries the great artists, scientists, writers, and many ordinary people have gone beyond the everyday physical world. Chopra reveals how to wake up to experiences that will blow open our bodies, minds, and souls.

To make this as practical as possible, Chopra offers a 31-day guide to becoming METAHUMAN. Once you wake up your life becomes transformed, because pure conscious- ness—which is the field of all possibilities then dawns in your life. Only then does your infinite potential become your personal reality.

Your work is not your Source, God is your Source

Where do you find inspiration and motivation? I often trip over it in the most unlikely places.

Today I walked into my workout room and the TV was on and Pastor Joel Osteen was just beginning his sermon. Something told me to listen. I did.

I was surprised and delighted to hear what I would call Law of Attraction being preached in Christian terminology.

What a great reminder when I heard him say:

“Your work is not your Source, God is your Source.”

Joel Osteen was preaching on making your big dreams come true by holding true to your faith in God (Universe) to set you up even though you can’t imagine how it’s going to come true. How right he is.  We don’t need to know HOW our dreams will manifest but we do need to trust and have faith for our biggest desires.

Then I started thinking about where else I source inspiration from because I know that I am not here to do anything of value by myself.

I am inspired by my husband Brian and the way he gives deep love to everyone he encounters. He makes me a better person.

I am inspired by my dear friend Marianne Williamson who is a candidate for President, knowing that she has big, powerful, game-changing ideas to improve our society, in spite of the sometimes ugly attacks that come on the harsh campaign trail.

I am inspired by two very dear friends, Claire Zammit and Vivian Glyck.
Claire is teaching women around the globe how to grow and thrive through her Feminine Power curriculum, and Vivian is changing the world with her Girl Power proven program to support adolescent girls in developing nations to stay in school, protect and respect their bodies, and design a life of their choice.

Who inspires you?

How The Experts Calm Themselves Down

One of my favorite saying is this: “if you don’t want to burn out, stop living like you are on fire!”

My fantasy is that I “glide through life,” and yet my reality is more like, OMG! Holy Shit! and I race around like the world will end if I don’t finish my To-Do list. Of course this creates tons of stress, anxiety, crazy fears that something bad is gonna happen, etc.
As I mentioned last week, my go to solution is EFT Tapping and I decided to ask my friends what they do to bring themselves back to neutral, sanity, or whatever happy place they want to be.
See if any of these solutions work for you!
Ken Druck
First I recognize that I am in a state of “this moment really sucks.” By acknowledging that and realizing that I am defenseless against my own fear, sorrow, or anger, I surrender and listen to what the emotions are trying to say to me. When I listen with the ear of self compassion I see it’s my internal radar trying to give me something of value and then it gives me a solution, whether it’s mindfulness, exercising, listening to music, talking to a trusted confidant, etc.
JJ Virgin
My go to for when I am feeling stressed, anxious and unhappy is to frame my day with what I call my GAM – gratitude, appreciation and miracles.
I write down three things I am grateful for in my morning journal, let someone know what I appreciate about them during the day and end the day with a little miracle that happened the day.
Dr. Anna Cabeca
Mine is to smile and think of my “Cheer Word,” i.e. a word that makes me smile. It may be SMILE, or JIGGLE and then allow myself to feel joy in the moment as much as possible.
Peggy McColl
I stop myself and ask myself this question: What would you love? And then I think about the answer to that question and I follow up with: What does that feel like? and then I go straight to feeling it.
Allison Maslan
I journal and ask myself: What is really going on underneath my fearfulness or worry. Is this fear based in reality or from my past experiences? In most cases, it is from the past and I am being triggered.
Then I make myself focus on a project. In the past, I used to allow my worries to paralyze me and I would not be able to focus on anything. By focusing on a project, I feel good that I am not allowing my fear to hold me back. After awhile, I have often forgotten what was worried about.
Lisa Garr
I get on my bike or go on a walk or run and within 17 minutes, I talk to God, Wayne Dyer, and whoever else is listening.  My thoughts completely transform into compassionate, solution-oriented, motivated thoughts.
Marci Shimoff
I do the Inner-Ease™ Technique from Heartmath. Here is an abbreviated version:
1. Acknowledge your feelings.
2. Do Heart-Focused Breathing by imaging you are breathing in and out through your heart.
3. Then with each breath imagine that you are drawing in a feeling of inner-ease.
4. When the stressful feelings have calmed, affirm with a heartfelt commitment that you want to anchor and maintain the state of ease throughout your day.
Elle Russ
I listen to an applicable affirmation recording by Justin Perry of the You Are Creators channel on YouTube, he has so many and I love his soothing voice.
Jonathon Aslay
I write out exactly what I’m feeling and then do a search on those words for a YouTube Abraham Hicks video and watch that. Often whichever video pops up is usually exactly what I need to hear.
Heidi Hanna
Essential oils, such as lavender to calm or ylang ylang for creativity and it
instantly connects me to the present moment. I do this in the morning while doing breathing meditations so that they become like an energy anchor for the state I want to shift to.
The Truth About Being a Coach

 

“Hype or Happiness” (you decide)
We’ve all heard the stories about being a life coach. Some are amazing and some… not so much. The first thing that you have to understand is that coaching isn’t for everyone.
Yes, most people, with the right kind of training can become a successful coach… but there’s a lot more to it than just picking up the phone, giving some advice and then collecting a check.
Now don’t get me wrong. I personally believe that being a coach can be one of the most rewarding professions, personally and financially.
Not only do you get to help others achieve their goals, but you will also find yourself achieving your goals much easier. If you like to help others and want to learn more about being a coach, I suggest you go here and watch this free video and decide for yourself if it’s right for you.
Wow! What A Book!

In That Will Never Work is the incredible untold story of how Netflix went from concept to company – all revealed by co-founder and first CEO Marc Randolph.
Now with over 150 million subscribers, Netflix’s triumph feels inevitable, but the twenty first century’s most disruptive startup began with few believers.
From having to pitch his own mother on being an early investor, to the motel conference room that served as a first office, to server crashes on launch day, to the now-infamous meeting when Netflix brass pitched Blockbuster to acquire them, Marc Randolph’s transformational journey exemplifies how anyone with grit, gut instincts and determination can change the world – even with an idea that many think will never work.

Staying Centered and Sane in A Crazy World

Lately many of my conversations with friends have been around just how stressed out everyone is. More than normal. Anxiety. Fear. Depression. Uncertainty. All seem to be rampant.

My theory is that we all have our “usual” mishigosh to deal with and now, with all the troubles in the world, we’re also feeling the collective angst in the field.

One of the ways I manage myself is with a simple, easy to do, and fast technique known as EFT Tapping. I suggest you give it a try, here’s a link to a free 5 minute video from my genius friend Nick Ortner.

Watch the free 5 minute video here!

And, if you need a more intensive practice please keep reading. This is what Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) posted on her Facebook page recently:

The reality of my life is this: Managing my mental health is very nearly a full-time job. I don’t take it lightly, because the stakes are high. Like many of us, I have a mind that is a very dangerous neighborhood. Left unattended, my mind will fester, rot, and roll me over the brink into anxiety and depression. I have a particularly muscular storytelling instinct — and the world has rewarded me generously for that! — but the dark side of my gift is that my mind is also capable of generating terrible, frightening, life-annihilating stories about myself and about the world. I can scare the living shit out of myself, and—in the process—destroy my life.

The battle begins quite literally the moment I wake up in the morning. With the first moment of consciousness, the insanity begins. The terrorist who lives inside my mind begins bullying and threatening me.

But I’m not powerless.

Over the years I’ve adapted practices to keep my mind flourishing and my life contented.

The first thing I do every single morning is pray.
(Specifically, I pray to be relieved from the bondage of self.) Then I meditate. Then I dance. Then I write myself a letter from Love. (This is the most important part of my day, when I connect to Love herself, and ask her what she would have me know today.)

At various times in my life, I have gone (or will go) to therapy, to yoga, to 12-step programs. I’ve taken medication at times. Whenever I see a church door open, I walk in, take a knee, and pray. I try to reach out to somebody every day with a message of Love, which ends up helping ME. I practice generosity, which also helps ME.

It’s an all-day job. It’s why I go to bed so early, so I wake up early, and begin tending to my mental health!

It’s a lot.

But nothing matters more, and nobody else can do it for me. I accept sacred stewardship over this mind.

What’s Your Love Language?

After I got married I found out there is something so much more important than being “right.” It’s being “loved.” I discovered that when I was committed to being “right,” it always meant making someone else “wrong.” As you know, feeling wrong does not go well with feeling loved.

So many of us like to assume a rigid stance and “dig in our heels” to fight for our point of view and prove how “right” we are — often about some pretty stupid stuff. The cost of needing to be right is hurting, harassing or humiliating the ones we claim to love the most.

I have finally learned to manage my mind and my mouth. Most of the time it’s not necessary to “correct” anyone on what I think is right or wrong unless it’s really pertinent to someone’s wellbeing. Now, when I am smart enough to “catch” myself and I am about to blurt out something in order to be “right,” I slap some imaginary masking tape over my mouth and choose love instead.

Learning to Speak the Same Love Language

 

We all express and receive love messages differently. Figuring out how you and your partner experience love can help tremendously in strengthening your relationship. My favorite book on this topic comes from Gary Chapman, PhD, The 5 Love Languages.

After 40 years as a marriage and family counselor, Dr. Chapman had heard a lot of couples’ complaints from which he saw a pattern. When he reviewed more than a decade worth of notes, he realized that what couples really wanted from each other fell into five distinct categories:

  • Words of Affirmation: compliments or words of encouragement
  • Quality Time: their partner’s undivided attention
  • Receiving Gifts: symbols of love such as flowers or chocolates
  • Acts of Service: coffee in bed, walking the dog, or doing other small jobs
  • Physical Touch: having sex, holding hands, kissing

According to the concept, the way you feel loved is also the way you show love.

Figuring out your partner’s primary love language requires you listen carefully, both to how they positively respond to you and also how they complain to you.

When I first read this beautiful book, I took the quiz and discovered my number one and number two were tied: I am a Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch gal. My husband Brian’s two forms of love are Words of Affirmation and Quality Time. Even if you and your partner have completely different ones, you can learn to speak your partner’s “love language.”

It is one of the fastest methods to bring you closer together.

How MUCH do you CRAVE That Desire?

I’m not very compliant when it comes to things I SHOULD do.

Things like taking ALL of my vitamins everyday.

Or, cutting back on carbs to reduce the chances of full-fledged diabetes and dementia (not to mention belly fat) or sleeping with my night-guard to stop grinding my teeth and getting middle of the night headaches.

Just “knowing” these things are good for me have never been enough of a reason to do them.

A part of me screams, “I don’t want to” and “you can’t make me.”

BUT……eventually, I get a good enough reason to become compliant.

I now take my vitamins (in spite of hating to swallow so many pills) because my new story is that “I do it for Brian” so he can have a healthy wife on the planet.

I am 80% compliant about carbs because one doctor showed me that I have 2 of the 4 the DNA markers for Alzheimer’s and eating low carb can prevent this.

I’m am now sleeping with my night-guard because another doctor explained that my minor sleep apnea could cause me to have a stroke or heart attack and wearing the night-guard will get more oxygen into my system to help prevent that.

So why am I so stubborn? I don’t know…. well, maybe it is because I am a tiny bit lazy.

I began thinking about all the ways we say we want one thing (in my case it’s a good, healthy, long life) and yet on the other hand, we don’t do all that we can to fulfill our desires.

So my message today is this:

If you can figure out one really, great, motivating reason to go for your dreams, then Just Do It!

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Arielle

A faster Way to Manifest Your Desires

Like most people, I want what I want, when I want it and I want it now.

And the word “want” is a surefire way not to get it.

Huh?

Wanting implies that something is missing. It implies lack. And when you are in the state of wanting, all the Universe can give you is more of the feeling of “wanting.”

It’s a cycle of doom most times.

Now, when you have a deep desire for something and that desire is rooted in knowing and trusting that what you have asked for IS already yours, well, that’s when the magic can and does happen.

However, understanding this intellectually doesn’t make it so.

The Law of Attraction is slippery stuff as I found out when I began practicing it.

Fortunately, along the way, I have had many great coaches who kept me focused, inspired, motivated, and held me accountable for co-creating my desires with the Universe.

I wouldn’t be where I am or who I am today if I hadn’t reached out and utilized coaches in my life.

I have recently partnered with an amazing group of coaches who specialize in the Law of Attraction …they have been trained by the greats, including Joe Vitale. And I have trained them in my work so that they can help their clients attract Big Love in addition to supporting them in every important area of life from money to career to health. They are masters at blasting away your limiting beliefs so you can have the life of your dreams.

Imagine breaking through the cycle of wanting and being able to attract what you want now, with the right help.

Coaching has been my secret power source, let it become yours too!

Don’t Fall for the BS about this!

There is an axiom that’s been circulating in the personal development world for years now that says we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with (attributed to Jim Rohn and others).

And I say its Bull Sh$t. (and some have a $100k a year program to make sure you meet and circulate with the “right” folks)

It’s a good way to make people paranoid.

Don’t believe that the 5 people you spend the most time with — even if they are broke, sick, negative or failing in life — that you too will soon be like them.

The purveyors of this madness claim these traits are “contagious” and if you really want to be successful you need to be hanging out with wealthy, super healthy, skinny, very successful folks. (If this were true my retirement account would be off the charts)

There is even a new “study” out that claims if you are hanging out with obese people, chances are 48% you too will become obese.

I am pretty sure that this study didn’t take into account that these people may be in families, where everyone eats the same thing, and perhaps can’t afford more than fast food but that’s another rant for another day.

I grew up with an obese father and his family were all big people, and yet, the rest of my immediate family were always normal weight.

Dad’s obesity was not contagious, but fortunately his passion for social justice was!

Life is just not as simple as this axiom claims. If you are reading this, chances are you are a thinker, a seeker, and you are taking responsibility for your life, your thoughts, your beliefs, your actions and you have discernment.

The people I know that buy into this thinking ALSO claim to be very spiritual…. ugh!

Let’s all try to love and support ourselves, and those closest to us, as well as strangers struggling on the street.

Instant Calm

 

Feeling stressed lately?

You will love this new book “Instant Calm” – from my bestselling author friend Karen Salmansohn “Instant Calm” shares a range of relaxing 2 minute meditations – which are fun and simple to do. They are unusual “sensory” meditations – sometimes called “grounding tools.”

Each is based on focusing on one of your 5 senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell) in a one-pointed way. They’re recommended by psychiatrists, yogis and neuro-scientists.

They’re great for beginners to meditation – as well as advanced meditators – because there’s something for everyone.

Get a peek inside “Instant Calm” here.

Don’t Blame The Victim

A big part of having success with the Law of Attraction is understanding that “thoughts are things” and that our feelings, thoughts, beliefs help to co-create our reality. Other factors that also influence our lives include karma, divine timing, desire, destiny, free will and that omnipresent reality of “shit happens.”

When something really bad happens to someone – lets say a serious diagnoses, losing a job, a big car crash, and then a supposedly well-meaning “spiritual friend” asks them, “ what thoughts were you having that would cause this?”

Well, this scenario just makes me crazy.

We would never ask an abused toddler, “Hey kid, what thoughts did you have that created these beatings?”

So, unless someone is sitting around thinking, “Wow, wouldn’t it be cool if I manage to get stage 4 colon cancer so I can scare myself and my family and go on a multi-year journey to fight the cancer and maybe live?”

It’s highly unlikely any of us have consciously had that thought or any thought to choose a bad event. So, while it is true that we cause things with our thoughts, fears and beliefs, it is also true that there are other factors that are at work here.

We all benefit from being more aware and more mindful of our thoughts and as much as possible trying to keep our thoughts positive, but it’s also not useful to “blame the victim,” and kick them when their down, by suggesting they caused the problem.

We are not privy to their soul’s purpose and path. We don’t know what trials and tribulations they agreed to before incarnating in this lifetime, so let’s do what we signed up for: to be their friend, cheerleader, support system, safe place to land. Lets hug them with our arms and provide emotional safety for them.

I often tell my closest friends that I am always there for them when they need a place to rant and rave and vent. I can create a safe place for their expression and then bring them back into a loving frequency. (and they do the same for me)

The Everything Book

When I first got married there were many days when I wished that Brian came with an Owner’s Manual! There seemed to be so many things I didn’t know about him and things he had told me but I had “forgotten,” and I knew if I had an owner’s manual, life together would be so much easier (and more fun!).

This is why I wrote The Everything Book: The Essential Details About The One You Love.

It’s a “fill in the blank” book to complete and share with your partner. It is designed to capture the essential details about the one you love. And, it’s a fun and playful way to communicate with your partner exactly what will make you happy!

Whether you’ve been together three months or thirty years (or more!), there is always more to learn about the one you love. Unless you have a photographic memory, it’s hard to remember all the facts, as well as the little details that make someone feel special.

Love, Attraction, & Gray Hair!

Gray hair getting you down?

Here’s some science based good news!

Whether you are dating or partnered, according to a joint study between psychologists from the University of St. Andrews and the University of Liverpool, a more mature appearance is exactly what some men find the most attractive. (“Mature” is code for gray hair in this instance.)

The study looked at how likely men (and women) are to be attracted to certain hair and eye color in their chosen partners, and they found that for men, the best indicator of preferences was the hair and eye color of their mothers. When nearly 700 volunteer participants (including 394 men) were asked about the hair and eye color of themselves, their parents, and their partners, they found that overwhelmingly, men were attracted to the same coloring that their mothers had.

The study found that “healthy” hair is more important than hair color unless you have an unnatural color in your hair, in which case it works against you.

I love this photo of my friends Alice and Stephen Josephs. Alice went gray in her forties and Stephen was just fine with that (his Mom was gray by her fifties.) From the first time I met Alice, I have envied her gorgeous gray hair and her loving and exuberant personality.Alice and Stephen Josephs

For more than twenty years, I have been coloring my hair every two weeks trying to stave off the fact that underneath, my hair is gray. Even though Brian has been encouraging me to go gray forever (his Mom was gray in her early forties), I have been resistant. No more. I have finally decided to go for it (and if I don’t like it, I can always revert back to hair coloring.)

As soon as I accomplish this transformation, I promise to post some photos of my new “mature” look. Fingers crossed!
