A Celebration of Life

As my thoughts continue to be with my friends who have recently lost loved ones, today’s Friday Story from Bob Proctor felt like the perfect message to share.

Hello there and welcome, I’m Bob Proctor.

I recently lost a very good friend of mine, Adele Claxton. Roy and Del were good friends and they were very good to me and Del just recently passed away.

I flew out to California where they were holding a celebration of her life. And I thought, what a wise move. You know we’ve got into the habit of having funerals where people sit around and they feel bad about the loss. In the celebration of life we feel good about all the great things Del did and how she helped so many people.

I had an opportunity to speak for a few minutes at it and I was saying that her beautiful personality lives on in her daughters Lorrie and Celeste. Nothing really dies.

I got thinking of all the studying that I have done, all the religion, it doesn’t matter what religion it is. There is no such thing as death. If you study science, nothing is created or destroyed. Think about that for a moment. The soul moves out of the body and it goes on to the next phase of its eternal journey.

I have been asked two or three times on conference calls where we were doing coaching. “How do you handle the grief when you lose someone?”

I said, a certain amount of grief is healthy but then you need to get on and celebrate that person’s life. Understand that person may be gone physically but they are not gone spiritually. You see, even the physical body doesn’t die. If you look at the body through a microscope you see it moving right before your eyes. How would it ever change to dust otherwise?

There is no such thing as death. Birth and death as we know it are both transitions. We move into this body and we will most certainly move out of it.

I have been asked so often that I thought I would turn my thoughts into a Friday story. If you have lost someone close to you, stop and realize that they are on the next phase of their eternal journey. If they could speak to you and they probably would like to, they would probably share with you the words of the poet, where he said, “If you could see where I went you will wonder why you ever wept.”

You see I have been into the non-physical part of our life for a long time. I just decided I was going to do this maybe to help you understand it a little better. Maybe you can share this with a loved one who has just lost a loved one. They may be gone physically but I can assure you they are here in spirit.

Sharing A Prosperity Blessing

One of the first things I do every morning is read inspirational emails from a number of my favorite teachers. Today, before I headed upstairs for my workout, I read Veronica Hay’s Prosperity Blessing, which was shared by Bob Proctor in his Insight of the Day.

Abundance and prosperity–which are indeed a part of optimal wellness–have been on my mind a lot lately, and this blessing captured how I woke up feeling. Since these are the wishes I have for you, I am sharing her wonderful words.

May you be blessed with an amazingly abundant day today!

May the clouds break and the heavens pour down upon you more joy, more love, more laughter and more money than you could have ever dreamed of.

May the sun shine its golden light of prosperity through every cell of your extraordinary body.

May you be cleansed today of any resistance or feelings of unworthiness that you may still be holding onto.

May your false illusions of doubt, fear and scarcity gently fall away like soft white feathers on a gentle breeze.

May you be willing, simply willing, to allow the Universe to shower you with miracles today.

May the Angels wrap you in their shining wings of opulence.

May the fairies deliver you to their pot of gold at the end of a majestic rainbow.

May your eyes shine with the glorious truth of who you really are and may that truth uplift others in your presence to their own inner knowing.

May your ears hear the sound of perfection ringing in your soul.

May you taste the deliciousness of every precious bite of life as your day unfolds moment by moment with amazing grace, heartfelt love and a bounty of magnificent money.

As this day ends, may you slumber wrapped in an exquisite blanket of enduring peace and profound gratitude.

And may the last words you speak today be Thank You!

Making the Most of Monday

 What if today was your day? The most amazing day of your life, so far? A day that would change everything for the better? What’s already good would become great. What’s already great would become amazing. And what’s already amazing would become the stuff of legends.

And all you had to do to take advantage of the good and wonderful things about to happen for you, was treat folks with a true and eager kindness, think mostly of those things that please you, and go out in the world, just a bit, where you could meet, and mingle, and fall in love?

Today’s your day, yet if by its end nothing seems to have happened, it may just mean that tomorrow, for sure, will be the most amazing day of your life.

Mike Dooley

“The only limits in our life are those we impose on ourselves.”

Bob Proctor

Do you believe that Mondays are good or bad?

What would happen if you decided to notice and document everything good that happens on Mondays and let go of what you consider to be bad?

Notice if you have a hard time letting go of the idea that Mondays—how should I put this plainly—suck?

In your mind, are you beginning to give me all the reasons you hate Mondays, or are you thinking of all the ways you have let go of this belief and want to share how much you now love and adore Mondays? Or have always liked them?

If you feel this strongly about Mondays, where else are you pouring your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs? Does the energy you are putting forth inspire you? Make you feel exhilarated and excited? Or does it give you a headache, or make you ready for a nap, or eager to get into an argument?

Because your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about Mondays—and every other thing in your life—are either generating positive anabolic energy that is building you up from the cellular level, or is generating negative catabolic energy that is deteriorating your body and your life.

Mondays are not inherently good or bad. You can tell this is true by looking around. Is it a Universal Truth—meaning it is true regardless of who or where or when—that Mondays are the worst day of the week? In other words, does every single person on the planet agree that Monday’s are their least favorite day?

Nope. I actually really like Mondays and I know a lot of other people who do, too. It’s starting the week off with a clean slate, it’s the potential of all that can be done in a week, it’s getting back to work you love, it’s being in control of life rather than life being in control of you.

How you feel about Mondays is a choice. Yes, it may be absolutely true that your job stinks, or you are most happy playing with your friends, or that things tend to go wrong for you on Mondays, but it doesn’t have to be true. As Bruce Schneider says, what’s normal for you doesn’t mean necessary.

Regardless of whether you love or hate them, what is one small thing you can do today to shift how you think about Mondays? If you did that consistently, over time how would your perspective about Mondays begin to change? What difference do you think that might have on your life?

Together we can do it!
