Daily Feature for Wednesday, August 29, 2012

One of the things that never ceases to make me laugh is people scaring others.  This is HILARIOUS!!!

Daily Feature for Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Hello all! As we’ve been gearing-up for our next radio show this coming Sunday, we neglected to provide a Daily Feature for last Friday, or for yesterday. We trust you had a great weekend, and that this coming week will bring you much inspirational support!

Today’s feature is the famous quote from Gandhi, about taking action to see the results you want to see in the world. I always “got” this quote on an abstract-level in the past, but it wasn’t until yesterday that it REALLY resonated with me in particular, about how it’s really a call-to-action. Want to BE ________ (fill in the blank with whatever instantly spring to mind for you)? Then stop dreaming and be it! The Universe, Source energy, God, loves to reward our inspired actions (faith) towards what we’ve been asking for. No matter your situation, BE what you dream of being now (even if it feels like pretending), and the people and resources will be placed into your path to affirm the choice you’ve made. Try it and see!    -D

Sometimes the greatest things happen when they are not planned. (Turn the volume up a little and revel is this….)

‘My most memorable moment from the ‘Judy Garland Show’ series did not occur on stage, or in front of our cameras. It happened in Rehearsal Hall A, the final runthru of show #9. The show would not be videotaped until the second night on Friday, October 4, 1963.
For a majority of the closed audience of advertising execs, CBS execs, show staff, singers and dancers, we had never met or seen Judys guest, Barbra Streisand. Barely in her twenties, she presented mixed messages about her persona because she wore thrift store inspired wardrobe, sandals that gave way to bare feet, strong New Yorkese accent with an unruly head of hair. True, we heard of Barbras hit recording, Happy Days Are Here Again, so we knew she had chops and Judy certainly praised her talent to the rafters.
This will be the first time that we will see how Barbra fits into the show and how Judy responds. As the run-thru progresses, we are treated to some honest and funny banter between Judy and Barbra. It is evident that there is such respect and admiration for each other. When Barbra, in a solo, begins to sing, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, we all knew there was so much more to Barbra than our first impressions implied. She sang
effortlessly and with such control that it was difficult to understand where the notes were coming from.
The next event was a duet composed of Barbras Happy Days and Judys Get Happy. It was later revealed that it was Judy who put this duet- more an interpolated piece-together! My memorable moment began with Judy singing a subdued melody line of Get Happy. This gave Barbra a lot of room to express her song.There was no orchestra, no microphones … just a piano … and the two ladies filled the Rehearsal Hall with such vocals and emotion it was staggering and brought on waves of chills.
Together, as they build in volume and emotion to the finale, the two delivered a masterful and unselfish one-of-a-kind performance that would have shattered windows. As great as Judy and Barbra were on tape, it didnt capture the emotion and chill evoking performance they accomplished at the runthru. With the full orchestra and microphones and multi-camera visuals, it lacked the intimacy of watching a very new and young rising star perform with a musical legend who extended encouragement, love and admiration for the new kid on the block.’

“The compulsive
thinker, which means almost everyone, lives in a state of apparent separateness, in an
insanely complex world of continuous problems and conflict, a world that reflects the ever increasing fragmentation of the mind. Enlightenment is a state of wholeness, of being “at
one” and therefore at peace. At one with life in its manifested aspect, the world, as well as
with your deepest self and life unmanifested – at one with Being. Enlightenment is not only
the end of suffering and of continuous conflict within and without, but also the end of the dreadful enslavement to incessant thinking. What an incredible liberation this is!

Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship. It comes between you and yourself, between you and your fellow man and woman, between you and nature, between
you and God. It is this screen of thought that creates the illusion of separateness, the illusion
that there is you and a totally separate “other.” You then forget the essential fact that,
underneath the level of physical appearances and separate forms, you are one with all that is.”  — from the introduction to The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle

Daily Feature for  Monday, August 20, 2012

Today’s Daily Feature is a bit different: this is a chance to hold a mirror up to yourself to see how you rate in your own life, across the core issues you may need to work on; the results may surprise you! Take this “Heart Issues Finder”, an approximately 10 min. test to determine where you currently stand in areas such as Love, Forgiveness, Unhealthy Beliefs, et cetera; it’ll then give you a score between a negative ten to a plus ten for each category, plus an overall scoring. With zero being the “normal” range, anything below needs work, and anything above are the more positive aspects of your life.

This assessment test is the beginning of using the Healing Codes to address these issues, so if you’d like more information about reversing any of the negative areas, be sure to dig deeper by visiting the main site, read the bestselling book, or ask us to discuss our own experiences with how we’ve witnessed life-transformation through using this system!

The following video features some of the music composed for these healing sessions, and helps induce naturally healing Alpha and Theta brainwave states; we can indeed vouch for the music being used in-conjunction with the overall program for the greatest effects:

Inspiring Honesty!

Homeless Couple In Sao Paulo, Brazil, Finds Duffel Bag With $10,000 In Cash, Turns It Over To Police

Brazil Homeless Cash

For those of us without Swiss bank accounts, $10,000 is a lot of money. For Rejaniel Santos and Sandra Domingues, a homeless couple who spend nights under an overpass in Sao Paulo, Brazil, $10,000 is a life-altering amount of money.

Yet when the duo stumbled across a duffel bag containing 20,000 Brazilian Reais ($9,831) at 3:30 a.m. Sunday, Folha de S.Paulo reports they decided to do the right thing and turn it over to police.

Santos found the bag near a bus station when he and his wife went to investigate why a nearby shop’s fire alarm had gone off. Though they could desperately use the funds, they never considered taking the money. “I learned from my mother to never take anything that belongs to others,” he told TV Globo.

He added that, while he’s lost touch with his family recently, he hopes his mother sees him on TV. That way, “she’ll know that her son is still one of the honest people in the world,” Santos told Folha de S.Paulo.

The couple typically earn around $7.50 each day collecting and recycling trash, according to EFE News.

Police identified the money’s proper owner using receipts in the bag, and returned it to the Japanese restaurant from which it was determined the money had been stolen last week, EFE News reports.

The couple owns just mattress, two blankets and a bag with clothes. The local Japanese restaurant will reward the heroic couple, according to Globo.com.

Coinciding with today’s post over our “comfort zone”, here are three really-great quotes related to the topic of moving forward to face the fear and REALLY live the life you’ve been given!

Daily Feature for Friday, July 6, 2012

Happy Friday!  I really like this quote.  Remember that following the crowd and comparing yourself to others takes away from who YOU are, and if you’re not being you then so many people miss out!

Daily Feature for Thursday, July 5, 2012

Today’s quote ties-together quite nicely with the Meditation post:

Daily Feature for Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Switchfoot’s Dare You to Move is already an inspiring song, particularly for those suffering from depression, but here’s an all-string cover version that recontextualises the melody into something that is still epic and lifting, even without the lyrics. I particularly like Asiatic-influence that sounds at-play here. Enjoy!!

Regina Spektor’s song “The Call”, written for the end scene of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian soundtrack is not only one of the best uses of song to capture the flavour and passion of a film’s message, but also speaks volumes on its own, no matter what context you apply it to in your own life. Let it inspire you today!

A reminder not to let things get you down – remember this 2004 anthem?

“Float On”

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off sometimes life’s ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on any way well

Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don’t you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on the exactly the same day
Well we’ll float on good news is on the way

And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on ok
And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Now don’t you worry we’ll all float on
Alright already we’ll all float on
Alright don’t worry we’ll all float on

And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Aliright don’t worry even if things end up a bit to heavy
We’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Alright already we’ll all float on
Ok don’t worry we’ll all float on
Even if things get heavy we’ll all float on
Alright already we’ll all float on
Don’t you worry we’ll all float on
All float on

Today’s daily feature is an Abraham-Hicks‘ video excerpt that covers not only the nature of our relationships to each other, but also to all the things, situations, and people around us.

“You can solicit from it (your relationship) what you wish to solicit from it, but you’ve got to SOLICIT FROM IT!…Your expectation is THE central point of attraction in every relationship…Find something and MAKE it right. Make it a decision, and then make it the RIGHT decision”

Daily Feature for Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Remember as we go about our day today, wherever in the world you live, that you have power.  Power to help yourself, power to help others, power to make positive change.

Daily Feature for Monday, June 11, 2012

Here’s a powerhouse scene from the 1994 film, Immortal Beloved, about the life of Ludwig Van Beethoven (played masterfully by Gary Oldman). It conveys the same measure of power in the imagery as in the music as we see the premiere of his best known-work, the 9th Symphony. Be inspired, and enjoy!:

Daily Feature for Monday, June 4, 2012

We here at ish believe in The Healing Codes…because they actually work.  Check out this excerpt by Dr. Ben Johnson:

“The truth of the matter is that we seldom run across a truly new therapy, especially one that can potentially change the landscape of medicine as we know it. When this coincides with our own personal point of need it can be a truly phenomenal event. I didn’t know it at the time I was diagnosed with Lou Geherig’s Disease (ALS), but the new therapy I was searching for is “The Healing Codes,” developed by Dr. Alex Loyd, who I am pleased today to call my friend and partner.

“After only three months of practicing The Healing Codes, I returned to the surgeon who first diagnosed me. He ran the EMG test for Lou Gehrig’s and found it to be 100% gone. I have been symptom-free since March 2004. For those of you who don’t know – there is no cure for Lou Gehrig’s disease.

“After personally experiencing the results of The Healing Codes techniques, I elected to learn the work in its entirety. I also trained the staff in my cancer clinic in Atlanta, so that my patients could have the benefits of this great work, as well. Based on the results, I now know that I have found the healing method I was searching for. I know of nothing else that addresses and heals emotional and physical issues so effectively and completely”.

-Ben Johnson, M.D., D.O., N.M.D.

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!! In keeping with a recent post that stressed simplicity, I found the following Einstein quote to be most illuminating. What better maxim to adhere to at the end of a long work-week?

Daily Feature for Monday, May 14th, 2012:

After putting her children to bed, Jacqui changes into her old jeans and a worn out blouse and proceeds to wash her hair. As she hears the children getting more and more noisy in their bedroom, her tolerance grows thin. At last Jacqui wraps a towel around her wet head and storms into their room, putting them back to bed and giving them severe warnings. While leaving the room, she overhears her three-year-old say in a shaky voice, ‘Who was “that”?’

Daily Feature for Friday, May 11th, 2012:

WAHOOO!!!!! It’s our launch day, and also our first Daily Feature! Normally we’ll have a real inspirational or fun item here, but for now you can celebrate with us, so long as you come back Monday 🙂
