Posted on 31 July 2009 by Dr. Karen

On this Monday’s radio show, I will be interviewing Neale Donald Walsch, author of the bestselling book series, Conversations with God.

In 1992 Neale donald Walsch’s life was transformed when in frustration he fired off an angry letter to God, asking the questions from his heart (but really the questions all of us want answers to) and to his great surprise, received an answer! This divine dialogue lasted for over three years and became a book that has astounded seekers all over the world with its simplicity and truth. In today’s interview with Neale Donald Walsch, he’ll be answering questions on love and relationships, information based on his book, Neale Donald Walsch on Relationships: Applications for Living. If you have a question, please call in!

Take the “Abundance” Survey Here (ends Monday July 27th)

Posted on 27 July 2009 by Dr. Karen

Abundance is a concept often debated in spiritual and entrepreneurial circles.

Entrepreneurs commonly use the catch-phrase “thinking BIG,” but they really mean the same thing.

Abundance is tough to define because it’s one of those unique ideas that must be experienced to really be understood … it can’t just be explained.

http://www.1marketinglive.com/cmd.php?af=hhp6231&p=61

Yet the most encouraging part of adopting an abundance mindset is how it can connect you to people with totally different set of beliefs and values.

It instantly sustains inclusivity even with people who are dramatically different.

POP QUIZ: What do Mother Theresa and Donald Trump have most in common?

The answer is their abundance mind-set.

Donald Trump says, “If you’re going to think anyway, you might as well think big.”

Mother Teresa said: “The more we discover the magnitude and abundance of God’s gifts, the more we will find ourselves.”

Again, the abundance mindset creates connections.Bucky Fuller had this to say about the abundance mindset:

“The condition of planet earth is abundance. Our belief in either scarcity or abundance determines how our financial, legal, political and military systems are set up or exist at all.Scarcity and abundance are foundational and contextual ideas. They each give rise to a distinct system of thought and a number of rules, characteristics and measures which only make sense within their own system.”

Above all, the abundance-mindset is a choice. In other words, you choose to look through the lens of scarcity, or through the lens of abundance. There is no in-between. “Do … or do not. There is no try.” ~ Yoda

Because there are are so many differing opinions about abundance, my colleagues and I have decided to conduct this worldwide survey get more opinions – your opinion – on this highly debated topic.

My JV partners, Alex Mandossian and Scott Martineau are hosting the Virtual Abundance Expo next week, so I figured this a great opportunity to host a survey and attract the best single sentence that clearly defines abundance.

What to do now:

Please use the comment boxon this blog  to write your definition of abundance.

The survey ends at 5pm PDT on Monday, July 27th, right before Jack Canfield’s keynote speech for the Virtual Abundance Expo.

All the definitions will be gathered and tallied the next day and five finalists will be chosen for the final vote.

If you are one of the five finalists, your definition of abundance will be personally evaluated by our Virtual Abundance Expo faculty. The top vote-getter with the clearest and most concise definition of abundance will be personally interviewed by Scott and Alex as a honorary faculty member for Virtual Abundance Expo.

So what do you say … are you game?

If you are game, then take a peek at these 9 abundance quotes to get your heart and mind moving…

“The only factor becoming scarce in a world of abundance is human attention” ~ Kevin Kelly in Wired

“Nothing amuses me more than the easy manner with which everybody settles the abundance of those who have a great deal less than themselves.” ~ Jane Austen (1775 – 1817)

“Abundance is, in large part, an attitude” ~ Sue Patton Thoele

“Abundance of knowledge does not teach men to be wise” ~ Heraclitus (540 BC – 480 BC)

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 – 1945)

“Unfortunately, the balance of nature decrees that a super-abundance of dreams is paid for by a growing potential for nightmares” ~ Peter Ustinov (1921 – 2004)

“Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into” ~ Wayne Dyer

“Expect your every need to be met. Expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level” ~ Eileen Caddy

“Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance” ~ Epicurus

Now it’s your turn … type in what you feel abundance means to you. Go ahead … the simple act of thinking about it will instantly improve your day.

Dear Dr. Karen: Can I change my future or is there such a thing as destiny?

Posted on 20 July 2009 by Dr. Karen

Dear Dr. Karen,

I would like to know if we can change the future and destiny or it is all written and decided. I went to a psychic that is well-known in my hometown. I don’t really believe in these things but the things she said to me are things she could not have guessed in any way.

My boyfriend and I were having problems at the time and she told me that I would look back one day and see him as my first love and that I will met somebody else that I will love even more. This was years ago and I am still with my original boyfriend and we are engaged, but I am terrified of getting married since I already know it will end.

If she hadn’t told me so many other things about my life then I probably wouldn’t believe what she said. Now my question is that since she could see into the future various things that would happen which has happened and various things in my past that happened this must mean that everything is already been written and we have no free will. Everybody say we have a choice and create our own destiny but if that was the case how can she see things? I love him so much but can’t be happy knowing I will lose him one day.

Kind regards.

Marie

Dear Marie,

I’m SO glad you asked this question. So thank you!

What I am going to share is MY understanding and perspective on the subject as taught by many of my teachers. Please take into consideration that it is only my understanding and interpretation. If you read it and it resonates with you, great! If not, then don’t believe me.

This is a crash-course on how the world of energy works (according to Dr. Karen).

First of all, everything is energy (repeat after me: everything is energy!). If you’re a fan of New Age science movies, then you’ll know from What the Bleep Do We Know that there is no such thing as time. All possibilities are happening simultaneously. However, our attention is on ONE particular “reality”.

When a psychic or intuitive does a reading, she/he is able to read the “future” by reading the energy field that is in alignment with or is based on your CURRENT energy frequency.

There is plenty of scientific data proving that so-called psychic phenomena exist and in fact you may wish to read The Field by Lynne McTaggert. You can be just as “psychic” with the training and practice. It isn’t so mystical afterall.

So a psychic or intuitive READS energy. An energy healer, on the other hand, MANIPULATES the energy. And an intuitive healer does both. This I learned from Laura Day (www.practicalintuition.com).

To answer your question more specifically: the psychic gave you a reading based on the current reality you were in with your boyfriend at the time of the reading. That’s all.

At any point after the reading, you may shift into a different REALITY and she has no control over that. That’s where the CREATION comes in. When your dominant vibration shifts to a different level (higher or lower) you can literally jump to a different or as they say in Star Trek, alternate Universe. Of course in Star Trek, they have only two alternates, but in truth we have umpteem realities possible.

What that means is that although having a psychic reading maybe fun and helpful, you are certainly not BOUND by destiny to experience ONE particular outcome. You still have the choice to intend an experience that you desire. That being said, many believe we do come into this earth with what is called a soul contract. Our soul contract is what we intend to experience in this lifetime (again lifetimes being concurrent realities as opposed to sequential). So if your soul contract is to experience forgiveness, you’re co-created realitie(s) will be imbued with opportunities to learn and experience forgiveness. But there may still be thousands of possibilities within that “destiny”.

One of the reasons I don’t necessarily hire a psychic but will exchange intuitive readings with my trained colleagues is that some psychics will share information with you that is not necessarily for your highest good. At least in my training with Laura Day, we just didn’t just reveal what we “saw” indescriminantly, eg, “You’re uncle is going to die in April.” but we’d give the information that would be helpful to the person eg. “It would be a really good time to resolve any conflict you have with your uncle and really connect with him within the next three months. You may need to be a support to your family at that time.” etc.

Some psychics, and certainly not all, really like to show off what they know in order to impress you and keep you coming back. My preference is not so much that people get great readings on their past to prove the psychic is good, but instead get valuable information that they can then USE in their present lives that benefits them.

A good way to check out whether or not the psychic your seeing is grounded enough to help you is to observe their life and their business. Do you admire what they have? Are their relationships rich and rewarding? Do they have abundant resources? Are they growing spiritually?

See what I’m getting at?

So the result (although unintended) from your psychic reading is that you’ve been in a state of worry for years. You’ve been unhappy in your relationship for years because you’ve been afraid of losing what you have! But guess what? You haven’t been PRESENT in your relationship for years, so it probably puts you at higher risk of losing what little you have!

See how sometimes visiting a psychic indiscriminantly can be harmful if you don’t know beforehand what your intentions are?

Now, I’m not bashing psychics because I have friends who do the business. I’m just saying that in your case, it was not helpful and certainly has been harmful.

So here’s my advice. Let go of YOUR perception that the psychic is 100% right about your future. In my opinion, that advice is currently NOT serving you. And by the way, at least the way I was trained, it would have been more helpful for her to have given you a “due date” for her prediction.

So Marie, start LIVING your life in the PRESENT and enjoying your boyfriend!  From this moment, right now, you are co-creating your life with spirit/The Universe. So long as you hang onto the notion that you cannot change your future, you will be right! That’s the law of attraction at work!

So the best way to proceed is to choose the thoughts and beliefs you have wisely. If believing that your destiny is written in stone is SERVING YOU and you are happy, then by all means, choose this. But if believing that you can co-create your life and that your future is NOT written in stone feels more joyful and happy, then choose this!

Nothing has meaning except the meaning you give it. I’ve just given you my personal “choice”, my “belief”, but it doesn’t mean you have to buy it..

You choose. What serves you the most?

Blessings,
Dr. Karen Kan

Rejected Again!

Posted on 12 July 2009 by Dr. Karen

Have you ever been rejected? once? maybe twice? how about over and over again?
If you have, you’re not alone. I’ve blogged previously about Handling Rejection (link to blog article here) in a previous blog article and I received some of the best feedback for that blog entry, so if you haven’t read it, I’d encourage you to do so.
But I’m writing about rejection once more because yesterday I was rejected (again!), and wanted to share what happened so that maybe my personal process will help you in yours. Here’s the story:
I had intentioned to be asked to be a speaker at a prestigious event in November. It was going to be a great honor and I had set my sights on being invited. Much to my surprise, that invitation came quickly as I spoke to the President of the company in question who asked me to speak at the event during a phone meeting I had with him last week.
I was elated! I savoured the satisfaction of my intention coming “true” and without much “effort” on my part. Then when I emailed later in the week details on the upcoming event, the Event Planner emailed me back and told me that unfortunately the speaker schedule was really tight and that they were sorry that they couldn’t use me any more.
OK, first I was elated, then I was stumped. Then a bit miffed at “them” for rejecting me!
What happened? I thought.
My natural tendency and probably yours too when you are rejected it to ask oneself,
What did I do wrong? Why didn’t they want me? Was I too enthusiastic? Too pushy? etc.
But just as those conditioned thoughts entered my mind, I remembered that I didn’t have to BELIEVE them. Instead I began coaching myself and telling myself that the decision to reject me was not personal. I suddenly stopped asking why. And my “miffed” feeling left me.
That was interesting!
Nevertheless, I was left with the feeling of….disappointment. I realized that I had become “attached” to the outcome (isn’t it amazing how quickly attachment can happen?).
So I had a couple of choices. In the past, I would have admonished myself for feeling disappointed. Why? Because the movie, The Secret (the first law of attraction movie made) seemed to insinuate that we should feel happy all of the time and that feeling negative feelings were “bad” for us.
However, the more “enlightened” me knew that if I tried to banish my disappointment and treat it as a leper, it would likely come back to bite me in the butt later on. That is how the Shadow (www.theshadoweffect.com) works if you don’t acknowledge and accept it.
So the first thing on my agenda was to “accept” my feelings of disappointment and forgive myself for being “attached” to the outcome of my desires. Given that I have had a lifelong practice of pushing negative feelings under the rug, one of things I allow myself to do these days is to actually FEEL the so-called negative feelings.
The difference here, though, is that I feel it on purpose. That is, I do it consciously. Rather than reluctantly or out of a belief that I have no choice. See the difference?
So that’s what I did. I announced to my dear dream partner, James, that I was consciously allowing myself to wallow in self-pity and disappointment for a while, fully knowing that it would pass. What I did not allow was believing any judgment that came up about why I got rejected. When I began to judge the “other party” for not hiring me, I let that thought pass and didn’t believe in it either. It wasn’t their fault or my fault. Fault-finding is definitely NOT helpful or self-compassionate! Remember that clue when you are harnessing the Law of Attraction to do your bidding!
A funny thing happened (but not entirely unexpected) soon after choosing to experience wallowing self-pity.
Almost within 1 minute of the words leaving my lips saying that I was CHOOSING to feel disappointment for a while, the FEELING began to dissipate. I didn’t mean for it to leave. It just started leaving on its own accord. Even though I was fully prepared for the onslaught of uncomfortable feelings, they seemed to release from me. And I began to laugh.
Yes, I began to laugh!
It dawned on me that for 40 years of my life, I had been working so very hard NOT to feel negative feelings and had only managed to keep them at bay, festering under the surface. Decades of disappointment, anger, resentment, sadness, fear….all trapped under a facade of smiles, finally managed to topple me over into illness half a decade ago. Thank goodness for the Universe’s wisdom to let the illness guide my way back to the Truth.
So, if you’ve been trying hard…too hard, to stop feeling bad or to stop thinking negative thoughts, maybe you need a different tact.
When things don’t work out the way we want them to, we can either resist “what is” or we can just make up a different story or perception that serves us. We can either judge or we can accept. And how we accept is to trust that the Universe has a higher purpose. That when we are rejected, it is because the “thing” we want is not in full alignment with our values, with our vibration.
So when we let go emotionally of what is probably not in our highest and best interest, we create a vacuum into which the Universe can fill what truly IS in our best interest.

New Movie: Beyond The Secret

Posted on 07 July 2009 by Dr. Karen

What an incredible day it was today.

This morning I had the privilege of interviewing Holli Walker, the creator of the film, Beyond the Secret. It takes you past where the movie The Secret left off. Having been in a physically and verbally abusive relationship with her husband that no one, not even her family members, would support her in leaving, Holli perservered against all odds to start a new life with her three little children.

Holli had no money, no connections and was bruised emotionally from the battle (divorce). Nevertheless, somehow, deep inside she knew that she had to find the light. She had taken “orders” from everyone in her life up until that point and after the divorce, she didn’t even know where to go.

But she was led. She was led to one personal transformation teacher after another. She transformed her life. She had a wonderful new husband in a happy supportive marriage and begun her life’s mission which was teaching others what she fought so hard to earn – the right to LIVE your dreams.

Now as a life coach and group facilitator, Holli Walker has added “film-maker” to her repetoire. The new movie, Beyond the Secret, gets down and dirty into what you really need to do..the ACTION you need to take and HOW to take it in order to manifest your dreams! Real people, Real stories.

You can order a copy of the DVD today. You won’t regret it!

Listen to the hour-long interview I did with Holli Walker at www.blogtalkradio.com/drkaren

Blessings,
Dr Karen (the Secret Sage)

Radio Show Monday: Interview with Holli Walker, creator of Beyond The Secret movie

Posted on 04 July 2009 by Dr. Karen

Have you watched The Secret movie and wondered….”now what?”

Despite the millions of people that the movie, The Secret, touched, not everyone was able to glean its message and apply the knowledge to his or her life in a meaningful practical way.

Some people just “got it” and were able to manifest amazing wonderful things – incredible healings, windfalls of money, fabulous relationships etc. and others were left a little confused and lost, not knowing “what am I doing wrong?”

If you ever thought, “how do I apply the law of attraction to MY life?”, then you are in for a treat this Monday!

Join me on the Law of Attraction in Love Radio show where I have the honor of interviewing filmmaker and creator of the next big Law of Attraction movie called, Beyond The Secret, Holli Walker.

Holli is a certified life coach who hosts her own radio show and who has made television appearances in addition to teaching individuals and groups. From Beyond The Secret DVD website:

beyondthesecret


The “Law of Attraction” DOES WORK! Finally, answers to the questions,  “What do I do?” and “How do I do it?” BEYOND THE SECRET gives you a new set of tools to make “Law of Attraction” work for you in any economy, in any situation!

There are many times in our lives that we stop, look at the road ahead, and wonder which direction to go. For centuries scientists, poets, artists and visionaries have come to the same juncture, looking into the abyss of the unknown and searching for that light which will illuminate all of the answers. The success of the original Secret is a testament to the global need and desire to find these answers, and ultimately make the decisions that will help us lead a long and prosperous life. 

The Power of Positive Thinking is more than just a mantra, it’s a way of life. It’s a mind-body awakening, an answer to all of those questions and the path laid before us. All we need to do is unlock the gift that we all have inside and take that journey.

The destination is never as important as the journey. In these very difficult times, we are all looking for answers and looking for ourselves. Beyond the Secret holds the tools to take the idea of what The Secret taught, and puts it into practice in everyday life.

So, come join me this Monday live and ask Holli a question!
