Exposing and Counteracting Social Media and the Internet’s Hidden Influences

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been exploring Social Media Influences and other manipulations on the internet.   Then for the second time after being on eBay and feeling really funky afterwards, I got how powerful these forces are.

I explored the manipulations of social media, the internet, eBay and online retailers, in a call with my good friend Cris. I’m including the audio of this call as a special thank you for being a part of this empowerment email group. If you haven't joined yet, you can do that here. 

Here are a couple tips and takeaways from the call.

And yes, I’m still going to be using the Internet and Social Media, though what if we could remove these Social Media Influences and use them more to our advantage?

Things to be aware of when we are online:

The Internet and Social media are powerful rivers of energy, going the direction they want to go – not the direction you want to go.

1-      Make an intention for your time on the internet.  The internet and social media are strong rivers trying to take you where they want you to go.  Without an intention, they can take you far away.

a.       What would you like to do, find out, accomplish when online?

b.       If you don’t have a specific intention – intend to use your time online to your advantage!

When you finish your online experience

2-      Energetically disconnect from the Internet and communication streams after you leave your computer or phone.

3-      If you feel funky afterwards – it isn’t you.  Clear the energies you picked up.

4-      It can also be helpful to turn off computers, WIFI and Bluetooth on your phone when you aren’t using them, and/or at night.

If you have any questions on social media influences or other internet influences, let me know.

What’s in Your Ideal Life – That You Could Have Now?

We can often fantasize about our ideal life.  The one where, once we’ve cleared all our debts, gotten though all our limitations, have tons of money in the bank, and this additional requirement and that requirement and all the others that have to be fulfilled first. Then and only then can we really start having our amazing life.

I know this, because I’ve done it too.   With the start of the New Year, I was thinking what is required to get to my ideal life?  Maybe you have too. It can seem like a lot of work to get there and also can seem pretty far away.  Sometimes so far away to almost seem unreachable.  As with any large challenge, one way to approach it  is to break it into smaller pieces and define it.  I started writing down what would be in my ideal life and the first few things surprised me. More time with friends, drinking  espresso coffee in the morning, exercising, being out in nature more.  Wow, I thought, I could actually have these in my life right now.

What have you decided would be in your ideal life that you actually could have today?

Would it be, more time with friends? more time by yourself?  Jot a few of these down.

Now, how could you easily add one or more of these into your life now?  Anything preventing that, do you choose to release and let those go?  Yes, I choose that.  Vaporize, Liquefy

…..and what is one small step you could take to start having this today?
You might have seen my 2 minute video last year on Taking An Imperfect Step.

These are the first few steps in Creating the Life You Desire.
In upcoming emails and on my Facebook Page, I’ll be sharing more tools on how to have more of this life sooner than you might think.

Are Your Goals Empowering You or Dis-empowering You?

Does saying your goal motivate you to want to achieve it?  Or does it bring up a knot in your stomach.  Or thoughts like, I should already have accomplished that, I should be already be there, what’s wrong with me that I don’t have it already.  I miss not having that.  Does it make you feel worse than if you didn’t think about the goal in the first place?  It's not that most goals empower you, actually most goals actually dis-empower you.

Goals not defined correctly can imply that something is wrong with us.  They can imply that we should have achieve that already. How empowering is it if you’ve decided that you already should already have what you are going for?  That’s like you lost something and are trying to get it back.  Not very empowering.

Here is a short video where I talk about just this.


What have you been unable to put into words

I just came back from a mastermind empowerment course in Thailand with Jaden Fox. Over the week of the course all the participants stepped up to lead when they had awareness on the topics.  Tapping into everyone’s awareness and the energy of Thailand created huge changes for all of us there. I’ve been trying to put in words what I learned and how I changed from this experience.  The words haven’t come to me and when it seems I have a block or limitation, I start exploring.  You might already know this but..

Words don’t work very well to describe certain topics or experiences.

This might not seem like an issue, but when we can’t define or describe something, our minds can easily go to “Did it really happen?  Did anything actually change?  Did I imagine all of that?” How many experiences, awarenesses or changes have you had that since you couldn’t describe them with words, they then seemed like they didn’t even happen?  Everywhere this happened, do you choose to remove and destroy all of that?  Yes, I choose that.

Do you now choose to receive all those experiences, awarenesses or changes that are to your individual advantage?  Yes, I choose that.

What can you be and what can you do to allow undefined changes, that are to your advantage, into your life?  Receive
