How To Spiritually Surf These Crazy Times

I hope you are safe and staying healthy as we all deal with this life changing time we are in. Brian and I are isolating ourselves at home, we’ve stocked up on lots of Amy’s canned organic soup (which I hope tastes good as I’ve never eaten it before), and we are checking in with friends and family by phone, Facebook and Skype.

For the past few days I have been blessed to have the time to listen and read a variety of meditations and blogs that have been comforting and calming.

I have found that my best strategy right now is to stay in the present moment as much as possible and to not let my monkey mind get caught up in “what if” scenarios. Below are links to three free resources that I have found helpful:

Dr. Barbara DeAngelis has a free, special audio with a healing meditation that will help you learn how to “stock up” on love and wisdom.

She offers practical steps you can take to understand and shift your relationship to fear, and navigate more gracefully and steadily in the uncertain weeks and months ahead.

Esther Hicks/Abraham has a recording on YouTube that I found to be a very good reminder on Law of Attraction as it relates to healing and wellness. FYI, the title of it is misleading as it says it is regarding Corona virus (which it never mentions) however, that doesn’t invalidate the usefulness of the message.

If you find you are experiencing fear-based thoughts, this will help you shift your thinking and raise your vibration.

Bill Bennett has posted a great blog on Facing Fear that explains that here are two types of fear – real fear and imagined fear. He says real fear is survival based fear, and it inhabits the body. Imagined fear is illusory based fear, and it inhabits the mind.

Our bodies can’t distinguish between real fear and imagined fear. One of the reasons there’s so much sickness and ill health in our society is because we live too much in imagined fear and the chemical secretions that result damage our biological systems.

He encourages us to handling this time with calm, with dignity, with compassion and generosity of spirit, with a love and deep respect for every human being on this planet – and with grace.

p.s. My mantra right now is: This too shall pass.

Manifesting In A Time of Madness

I woke up this morning to news about world markets crashing, Corona virus numbers doubling, speaking engagements being canceled, and so much more.

And yet, I am feeling very optimistic as I wash my hands in hot soapy water and make a list of more food to store up on “just in case.”

Why am I feeling good?

Because my faith is strong that despite what is happening in the outer world (where I have little control) my inner world knows that whatever happens, ultimately I am OK and I am going to be OK.

This is a conscious choice to not dive into the worry and despair and anxiety that is prevalent right now.

If I had a magic wand, yes, I would wave it and make the virus disappear, and sick people would get better, and war would cease, and love and peace would prevail.

My magic wand is my heart and my heart says:
I am blessed and I give thanks that in this moment I have many in my life who love me.
I am blessed and I give thanks that in this moment I have everything that I need.
I am blessed and I give thanks that no matter what happens, I am whole, healthy and complete and will continue to survive and thrive.
And so it is.

Remember, we get to choose our thoughts and actions so choose wisely.

A Theory of Love

A few years ago I came upon the letter below that was supposedly authored by Albert Einstein written to his daughter Liesel about love. I have since discovered that Einstein did not write this and the original author is still unknown. That said, when I re-read it again, I was still moved by the wisdom, poetry, and truth it contains and thought you might enjoy it as well.

“When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.

I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.

There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.

This universal force is LOVE.

When scientists looked for a unified theory of the Universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force.

Love is light that enlightens those who give and receive it.

Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others.

Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness.

Love unfolds and reveals.

For love we live and die.

Love is God and God is Love.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life.

This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will. To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.

After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.

Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet. However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.

When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Liesel, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life.

I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer!”

Your father,

Albert Einstein

While we may never know who penned this, or if Einstein would agree with its content, I believe the core message is one we can all use in these crazy times.

The Unexpected Pleasures of Aging

One of the greatest joys of my life is that I get to meet some of the most brilliant and evolved humans on the planet and this includes my friend, Chip Conley.

Chip has written several New York Times bestsellers, including Wisdom at Work, and now is the innovator of “becoming a Modern Elder.”

I spent a week co-leading a workshop with Chip a few months ago at his fabulous Modern Elder Academy in Baja.

Today I am thrilled to share with you one of his recent blogs on “The Unexpected Pleasures of Aging:”

Just when I got comfortable in my skin, it started to sag. But that’s okay. I take life less seriously today than I did ten years ago. The Latin root of the word “serious” means weighty and grave. But even though my weight is 15 pounds heavier than it was in 2010, and I’m closer to my grave, I don’t feel more serious.

Buddha said the root of all suffering is attachment, but underneath that attachment is comparison. Part of the reason it can be painful to go to your college reunion is it reminds you of all the comparing you used to do. By the time you hit midlife, hopefully, you see what a silly game that all was… and is.

Of course, that’s not the only benefit of getting older.

Here is my list of five unexpected pleasures of aging (I reserve the right to change my list next week):

I’ve become a superb editor. While I’m still curious and open to trying new things and meeting new people, I know enough to spare myself from the people, places, and situations that will lead to agony.

Pat Rec is my new shorthand for wisdom. Wisdom is human-centered pattern recognition. Over a few decades of becoming increasingly aware of my intuition, I have an invisible character calculator in my gut that reads humans almost like a supermarket barcode scanner. Pat Rec has helped me become a “first-class noticer.”

Better peripheral vision for life. No, my eyesight is not 20/20 in 2020. However, my ability to weigh the collateral benefits and costs of critical decisions I make is so much better today compared to earlier in my life (when I was so damn focused on the core of the decision). Being able to imagine the less obvious upside and downside means I make better decisions today than I did 25 years ago.

More Attuning, Less Attaining. I grew up an admiration addict who grew my self-esteem by attaining, often having to atone later because I was so focused on my own striving. Today, I’m in the attunement mode more often in harmony with what surrounds me. So, “atone” has become “at one,” which is what it feels like when I attune.

A better operating system—driven from my soul, not my ego. I wish they handed out operating instructions when we hit midlife (aha, maybe that’s what this blog is all about!). The egoic operating system divides everything into subject and object, and it perceives through differentiation. What a relief it has been to feel my soul gently move into the driver’s seat, with a new pair of glasses that allows me to focus less on the superhighway of rushing cars and more on the glorious vistas that are right in front of me.

Who Needs Your Love NOW?

One of my favorite lines in A Course In Miracles is this:

The only thing lacking in any situation is that which you are not giving.

If you are out of sorts, stressed out, anxious, in need of a hug and some love, please know that you are not alone.

Most of us are pretty upside down these days about one thing or another.

And, an instant solution is to share some of your love with someone else.

Whether it’s a friend, elderly relative, stranger on the street, co-worker, neighbor, or the next person you come across, give them a big smile and a kind word, delivered with a blast of love and you can make someone’s day.

A phone call can work wonders and if that isn’t possible, send a simple text or email and be sure to encode it with your love.

I promise you will feel better and you’ll be making the world a better place for all of us.

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Research shows THIS is the #1 key to happiness and longevity

Have you heard about The Marriage Effect?

It’s scientific research that proves that one of the best ways to have a long, happy, healthy life, and to experience less pain when you do fall ill, is to be in a good marriage.

If you’re a single woman, or have a friend that is, I have a special Valentine’s Day gift to lead you (or your friends) to a high-quality partner and create a deeply loving soulmate relationship.

My dear friend, Dr. Claire Zammit, founder of Feminine Power & I have discovered and developed a break-through approach that especially works for conscious, smart women to attract an extraordinarypartner and create happy, fulfilling and lasting love.

It’s available now as a 12-week online Course known as The Love Codes and women who have participated rave about the results they’ve been able to get applying our breakthrough approach:

“Thanks to Claire and Arielle not only have I found ‘a man,’ I found The Man. I’m head-over-heels, flat-on-my-face, jaw-on-the-floor drooling in love with the most intelligent, handsome, psychologically stimulating, intellectually challenging, sexiest man I could ever dream of…”
—Diely

“As a result of what I learned from Arielle and Claire, I just got engaged last night to the wonderful man I attracted into my life! Your insights and wisdom made a huge difference. It worked! I am grateful!”
—Barbara

And the experts say:

“Arielle Ford weds ancient wisdom and modern concerns to create the formula for a sustainable, loving relationship for years to come.”
—Deepak Chopra

“Claire is a woman whose work I deeply admire and a friend who I myself turn to for wisdom and counsel.”
—Marianne Williamson

“For single, conscious women seeking a lifetime of love and happiness, my friends Arielle Ford and Claire Zammit are the “go-to” experts in the field. ”
—John Gray, Bestselling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus and Conscious Men

Imagine finally being with someone who can “meet you”—and feeling deeply seen, supported, cherished and adored…

Imagine finally having a place to land at the end of a hard day… someone to share your wins with, and who is there for you when life gets rough…

Someone who can be your full partner in all areas of life, whom you can respect and count on for advice and emotional support, and whose happiness is as important to you as your own.

And if you’re on a path of personal growth and spiritual development, there’s no greater catalyst for healing and transformation than sharing your life with a life-partner.

Stop waiting for “Someday”

Kobe Bryant’s untimely death on Sunday (he was only 41!) came as a shock to his fans around the world.
Kobe Bryant

It’s so hard for me to wrap my head around how one moment you are living and seconds later it’s game over.

Real life is unpredictable and this tragedy is a reminder for me to use my limited time on Earth to experience the people, places, and things that most appeal to me and to use my creativity and skills to add a little magic and healing to the planet.

What is on your bucket list and do you have a plan to make it happen?

Please don’t wait till it’s too late to find love, or love the one you’re with, or write that book, do that dance, take that trip, take that leap of faith.

If you need inspiration and motivation, read my brilliant friend, Sam Horn’s, book “Someday Is Not A Day In The Week.”

Yikes! I need Extra Strength Rose Colored Glasses

I don’t know about you, but I am finding my usual sunny, optimistic outlook on life
feels more like a big, dark cloud of doom at the moment.

With all the political unrest, the fires in Australia, daily gun shootings, general, escalating chaos in the world, and a crazy amount of family and friends with challenging illnesses to deal with, I am finding myself needing stronger than usual rose-colored glasses.

Thankfully I do have my toolkit of spiritual and emotional techniques to keep me sane (especially EFT tapping), but when I think about all that is occurring, the future looks bleak to me.
I realize that the majority of the things getting me down are not “personal” to me, except to say that since we are all connected in the field I am experiencing what Deepak calls “jittery platelets.”

My commitment for right now is just to allow myself to experience life as it is (in small doses) and then use my toolkit to transform in order to stay resilient and transform negative into positive while I pray for rain, healing, and new possibilities!

Two (free) Fun Baby Steps to More Love, Better Health

As part of my commitment to stay healthy and get healthier this year, before I get out of bed each morning I begin each day listening to my Morning Love Raising feelingization.

This 14 minute audio is focused on bringing love, light and healing to my body, mind and spirit and sets me up to have a great day.

In the past I used to start my day looking at my email on my iPad (while still in bed) and depending on what kind of emails I had gotten over night, my day could easily be energized or ruined pretty quickly.

This new plan is so much better.

Now I wait until I have gotten to my desk (after eating a healthy breakfast and exercising) before diving into work!

To access this free audio, click on the link below and go to “Feelingizations.” For better health and a great day listen to the 3rd one called Morning Love Raising.

And for manifesting your desire, scroll down that page till you see me in a Video screen title Deep Heart Guided Meditation.

Acts of Faith – Manifest Faster

Happy New Year and if you are like me, chances are you have a list of goals, desires or intentions (hopefully written down on paper and shared with an accountability partner).

One of the lesser known manifestation tools is called “Acts of Faith.”

This is something you do when you are so trusting that your desire will be fulfilled, that you acquire something that you would want or need if the desire arrived right now.

For instance, if your desire is to meet and marry your soulmate a gigantic Act of Faith would be to buy your wedding dress now.

Or, a smaller but more comfortable, Act of Faith would be to buy your wedding cake topper and place it on your love altar. This way every time you see this wedding cake topper it affirms your belief that your wedding day is on the way. (the one pictured here is $18 on Amazon)

I have just written my first novel and am now in the process of finding the perfect publisher. My Act of Faith is to celebrate when the contract is signed and take a tropical beach vacation with some of the advance money I make. Once I figure out where I most want to go, I will be making reservations in anticipation of all of this coming to fruition.

Another one of my big intentions for this year is to turn my new novel into a movie. My Act of Faith is to learn how to make a movie so I joined Masterclass.com (the annual cost is $180) and I am now in the middle of my first online video course with director Mira Nair (who I also hope will end up directing my film)!

An Act of Faith doesn’t need to cost much but it does need to inspire you to “live as if” and to trust that what you’ve asked for is already yours.

Email me at arielleford@nullgmail.com and tell me your intention and act of faith, and I will share some in an upcoming blog.

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Arielle
