Lucky YOU - - - Three Tips to Create a Lucky Life All Year Round
Seed your day by getting lucky first thing in the morning!  Even if you’re traditionally not a morning person (wink) there are some things that anyone can do to start the day off from a place of anticipation, expectation, gratitude and joy.  The very first thing you see the very first time you open your eyes in the morning will influence and impact, not only that particular day but potentially your entire life.  If the first thing you spy as you open your eyes is a desk full or unfinished business or exercise equipment (a ‘no – no’ in the bedroom anyway!) with the dry cleaning hanging on it or an open bottle of Vick’s NyQuil from the cold you had a week ago, well, imagine how these images impact your experience.  On the other hand if you have a clean and clutter free sleeping space with a beautiful comforter keeping you cozy and warm and some images or artwork of beauty and possibly even some soft music playing in the background, well, then you might feel fully present as you express “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”  Beginning your day in a state of present of gratitude also begins your day with grace.  And don’t forget that ages-old legend and lore says that if you get out of bed by climbing over the foot of it, you’ll have outstanding luck all the daylong.
Now, speaking of expectation, recent scientific research done on the difference between lucky and unlucky people shows that lucky people’s expectations, their dreams, goals, hopes and ambitions often become a reality because of one fundamental difference in how lucky people think.  Simply put lucky people have positive expectations that then motivate them to take control of their lives.  They will actually attempt to achieve whatever they want from life no matter the likelihood of being successful.  This internal motivation prompts lucky people to persist even in the face of challenge, obstacle or adversity.  Lucky people define at least five goals for themselves on a regular basis by writing them down and looking at them often.  And, then, they take (at least!) one proactive step each day towards reaching those same goals.  They reach out or join in or even simply do a positive meditative visualization of what they will FEEL like when their goal is reached.  Lucky people expect success.  And, so, they often achieve it.
Invariably and, again, according to scientific studies, lucky people are found to follow their instincts, intuition and plain old gut hunches much, MUCH more than those who consider themselves to be unlucky.  The lucky bunch do different things in order to enhance their intuition and hone their instincts such as investing time and energy in some formal form of meditation or simply sitting quietly and clearing their mind and focusing on the first thoughts that come to that same place after asking an appropriate question.  Creating a sense of stillness in order to get in touch with intuitive inspiration is a hallmark of lucky people and can add immeasurably to a state of clarity and calm as well.  Go ahead, ask any harried mom how lucky they are when they can find a personal peace as well as some clarity and calm.  See?  Lucky.
These three tips are applicable to anyone at any time and in any place.  Exercised with regularity and belief they can help anyone to create a luckier life filled with health, happiness, love and prosperity.

Greening the Home or Office


-- Quote of the Day --

"I've learned that we cannot forget or throw away our past, But we must not allow our past to control us either. We must learn and grow from our past failures, disappointments, pains and experiences. Reset our goals and priorities... and move forward. 
Start TODAY, by Un-Ty-ing the knots that LIMIT you!

~ Ty Howard



-- Tips to Green Your Home or Office -- 

You can save a lot of money and feel good about greening your home or office this Spring with some easy activities that require very little time or effort. 

Air leaks in the home can reach 25-40% of the heat and cooling costs, and a home that is drafty or has moisture problems and high electric or gas bills will be harder to sell. Easy ways to keep the heat or cool air in the house include closing blinds and windows and doors until the sun hits the windows in the winter, then open them to allow the solar heat and light to enter the home. Do the exact opposite in the summer – open window coverings only when the sun is not on that side of the house, and open doors or windows to bring in cool morning and evening air only. In the winter be sure to placing plastic over the windows using the clear plastic kits. 

Caulking around window and door frames and baseboards, installing door sweeps and weather strips on the doors, caulking around holes where pipes, vents, cords are entering the home on exterior walls, insulating electric outlets and light switches with foam sealers, additional insulation in the attic, weather stripping around the attic hatch, seal foundation cracks, and close off the chimney when not in use. 

Replacing windows, doors and skylights can save you 12% of your heating and cooling costs, while increasing security and the value of your home.   
Plumbing, electric cords, bathroom vents, and pipes often have gaps in the walls or ceilings they penetrate… seal those.

Waste Reduction & Laughter


-- Quote of the Day --

“…Laughing makes fresh air into the lungs, oxygen enters the brain so we can thing clearer; it is a muscle relaxer… and every muscle in the body gets a workout - it is very much like an aerobic exercise. The thing about it though is that you don’t have to go out and buy running shoes or invest in a rowing machine; you just laugh! ...The 5 stages of grief go like this: acknowledging the loss, learning from the experience, letting go, living and finally laughing. We do indeed learn from those before us – Someone we love dies and it is upsetting, but their spirit is still there and we are left with these wonderful – and not so wonderful – memories. But it is all about attitude…”

~ Allen Klein - Humor Healing Grief

Kudos to Austin Resource Recovery for their initiative in moving towards zero waste!
 
A 30-year plan from Austin Resource Recovery (Texas, USA) was recently released stating their intent to reduce waste in the landfills by 90%.  Use of curbside recycling and yard waste programs, promotion of reuse and drop-off facilities, a new hazardous waste facility and fines for waste generators – are all part of this plan.

Could you imagine having only 10% of the waste generated in such a large area sent to the landfill?

That is huge!

Author Calls for Submissions

Marriage Blisters:  Spousal Behaviors That Rub You Wrong (or raw).

Even Angelina (Jolie) will tell you that Brad has a behavior or two that annoys and frustrates her. In the beginning of a marriage an annoying behavior is not as magnified as it becomes later on. We are in that honeymoon phase where "leaving one's clothes thrown on the bathroom floor" is tolerable. Maybe, we surmise, the habit will go away - out of nowhere he or she will start putting the clothes in the hamper vs. the floor.  For the one who tolerates this habit for several years, it often becomes a pain, a sore, and then a blister -an open wound. It is a natural thing to reach a point, of wanting things to change. Physical blisters can be healed, and so can marriage blisters.  We just need to own up to them, find a solution to resolve them with our partner, letting the healing begin so the positives of our marriages wins out.

Patricia Bubash is currently looking for stories to include in her upcoming book: Marriage Blisters:  Spousal Behaviors That Rub You Wrong (or raw).  

Anyone can contribute their thoughts and respond to the three main questions Patricia supplied for contributors:

1.  What is the annoying, irritating behavior?
2.  What is your coping method:  ignore it, get angry, insult your spouse, etc?
3.   Do you see this as detrimental to your marriage?
* Deadline is April 15th

World of Writing, interview


-- World of Writing --

We are proud to offer yet another World of Writing Interview for our readers here on the Brummet's Conscious Blog. Our special guest Mary Hitchcock Cone is a fiction writer specializing in short stories and mystery novels. She began writing in mid-life while on staff with the Trust for Public Land and Nature Conservancy. In 1997 Mary joined a Marin County–based writing group inspired by author Anne Lamott, whose members met weekly to share and critique their original fiction works.

Mary was married for fifty-three years to the late Russell Cone, a journalist for the San Francisco Examiner, and raised two daughters. She instilled in her children the idea that living a life of meaning is an art. Mary currently resides in Sacramento, California. Her book, Moose Mash and Other Stories is published by FolkHeart Press. Find Mary @: http://www.moosemash.com

Q: Do you belong to a writers’ group?

I was very fortunate to belong to a writing group in Larkspur, California, for almost eleven years. The members — students of author and writing teacher Anne Lamott — were very enthusiastic about Ms. Lamott’s honest approach to writing. We focused on bringing stories to life and supported each other to get our work into print.

Q: How did you find the group and what inspired you to join?
I was a member from 1997 to 2009, until I moved to Sacramento, California. The members had been students in a writing course taught by author Anne Lamott. When the course ended, Ms. Lamott advised them to form a writing group, which they did. Shortly thereafter, I met one of the members at a writing conference, and was invited to join. I was thrilled and it turned out to be a significant experience.

Q: Where did you meet? How often? What did you do there?

We met religiously every Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m. at the local bookstore called Book Passage. We eventually arrived at a format that worked — taking turns reading and editing ten pages each week. I think we lasted so long, as my writing buddies would say, because of “our love of writing and the intricate process of working a piece to its fullest incarnation, along with a willingness to leave egos at the door.” When a member had a big work, like a novel or collection of short stories, we would meet for a longer working session.

Q: What was your path to publication?

I had just finished getting feedback on a collection of my short stories from the writing group, when a family friend, Karen Pierce Gonzales (who owns a small publishing company called FolkHeart Press) said she was looking for new material. She asked me to send her my short stories, liked them, and produced my first book in December 2011. It was a team effort: my daughters Chris, a book editor, and Lucinda, an artist, prepared the manuscript and book cover design, a family friend and pre-press pro formatted the book, and Karen is handling promotion and distribution. The book is called Moose Mash and Other Stories, http://www.moosemash.com/

Q: What advice would you give for aspiring authors?

What they say is true: Write about what you know. And I would add: Write about what you love. Writing is really about chipping away the lies and half-truths to get to the heart of a story. Being honest and patient with yourself and working with a trusted group of fellow writers are the keys to discovering a story that rings true to the reader.

Q: Tell us a bit about your passions in life.

My greatest passion was my late husband Russ, to whom I was married for fifty-three years. We were lucky to be in love all our married life. I am passionate about my two daughters and feel blessed to be a parent of such remarkable people. Writing is, of course, a great passion; I’ve always been fascinated by the compelling humanity within seemingly ordinary lives. I also love to travel, swim, and play music.

Technology and Construction News


-- Quote of the Day -- 
 
“…Neurofeedback is biofeedback – it has been around for a very long time. The difference is just what part of the body you are giving feedback to. And it literally is feedback – in the same way that you use feedback to children to teach them such as saying don’t or from natural consequences (like touching a hot stove, we learn when it is red it is hot and not to touch that. …So what happens with Neurofeedback we are able intentionally give feedback to the neuronal activity in the brain at such a quick pace (a millisecond) – we can say ‘not so much of that’, or ‘a little more please’. We want to see a balance in the brain wave activity. …(In dealing with other children when we have special kids) …it is really about weaving it together; being inclusive and using every opportunity. Let’s say you are taking Sara along when Bobby is going to therapy. So you can have Sara bring along her homework that you two can concentrate on while sitting in the waiting room. …Let’s say that you see a reaction with dairy for one child, but the whole family is having dairy – creating a rift. I’ve seen kids deal with the nutritional issue better than the psychological issue of not being able to eat what the other kids are eating.”

~ Lynette Louise

Kudos goes out to the construction company Takenaka Corp. was able to build a highly energy-efficient office building, called "Ecohouse," along with a factory employing a total of 70 environmental technologies at half the C02 emissions – compared to the average office building in the Hokkaido area.
They did this – according to the Japan for Sustainability Newsletter www.japanfs.org - by implementing energy conservation measures, employing local workers, using local materials, utilizing natural energy sources like geothermal and solar power, and reducing construction byproducts. They also incorporated a landscaping design based on the surrounding natural forest with careful attention to biodiversity.

Get in Shape for Spring


* Today's article was sent to us by Imal Wagner on behalf of:

Katie Boyd, star of Style network’s hit show, Wicked Fit, which takes place in her gym, The Miss Fit Club www.KatieBoydsMissFitClub.com , is taking women to a new level of fitness and feeling good with exercise and strategic nutrition tips and so they can reach their goal of becoming fit and healthy in 2012 .  Katie, a personal fitness trainer and certified nutritionist, says, “You can go out and have a life and still be fit for Spring. It’s about getting your thinking in shape for success and know choosing  in favor of being healthy and happy with yourself.”
 
4 Tips for Getting in Shape for the Spring

Spring Fever is right around the corner! You know that feeling where it gets a little warmer, the sun starts shining brighter and while outside you close your eyes, take a deep breath and welcome it! Crocuses are popping up from the soil, the snow is melting away and so should your fat deposits that have been accumulating and storing as if you were a hibernating grizzly bear during an extra long winter slumber.
That being said there are a couple universal rules that all walks of life can do to help tone up, shed body fat  Here are my four no fail sure fire tips for Springing into Fitness
1. The biggest lesson I have ever learned in my life: Your best bet to shock your body into change is to do an 8 week stint of High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT training consists of upper and lower body movements at the same time with Isometric or holding contractions in static electricity in the muscle fiber and Plyometric exercises which are explosive movements in between every two exercise combos. For example: Bicep Hammer Curl with Plie Squats then Alternating Side to Side Lunges with Upright Rows then a Plyometric Jump Squat. A workout like this should be done 4-6 days a week depending on how much body fat you are looking/needing to lose. 45 minutes tops! Workouts that are hyper-explosive get the job done.
2. Eat six small meals a day! Never say the word DIET... Food is nourishment and fuel for an active lifestyle and if you follow the 80/20 rule meaning 80% of the time eat what I am going to show you and then 20 % eat some nachos or have a cocktail...do not  beat yourself up over it. Eating every three hours makes sure your body is always working to metabolize. Thus burning calories. I like to use the analogy of making a fire. If you are making a fire you feed the fire kindling and some news paper or brush and that usually ensures a bright burning fire that you can add larger items to like the occasional log.  It is the same with your body. 
Most people starve themselves until dinner time and drink coffee to keep themselves going until the eat a dinner the size of Manhattan, then go to bed with all that junk just waiting to be stored as body fat. How is that ever going to work for you? Exactly...it never will! Adapting the twigs and newspaper idea for your body as you would starting a fire is the way to go. Always have some kind of a protein at every meal. It doesn't always have to be food you chew...it can be a shake. You can also get protein from legumes like hummus or nut protein like raw almonds or all natural peanut butter as well. Tapering your starchy carbs off as the day comes to an end is also going to really help you shed that body fat because your body does not need carbs at night for energy. Just protein for repairing muscles and fibrous carbs like green veggies.  
Sample Meal Plan
Meal One at 7 am~ Greek Fritata with an Ezekiel Bread English Muffin with coffee with 2 Truvia and a splash of So Delicous Coconut Creamer (comes in three flavors, Hazlenut, French Vanilla and Regular)
Meal Two at 10 am~ 1 cup of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black berries, one or combo of all) with Muscle Milk Lite Vanilla Latte It is tasty, has mono and poly saturated fat which studies have shown help burn fat and is lactose free for those who have milk issues.
Meal Three at 12/1pm~ 1/2 of a cup (cooked) of Tricolor Quinoa, 1 cup of greens (broccoli, asparagus, or my favorite recipe right now, green beans, I love haricovert ...the baby string beans with pine nuts and dill with some type of protein whether it is chicken, steak or fish, or if you are a vegetarian Veggie Patch Makes wonderful meatless meatballs and veggie burgers.
Meal Four at 4pm~ 2 tablespoons of Tribe Hummus, they have a plethora of amazing flavors from Mediterranean style to Cilantro Chimmichurri with 1 cup of green veggies. My fave mix is broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, cucumbers, celery. No carrots and no tomatoes...too sugary for that time of day.
Meal Five at 6/7pm~baked haddock or cod fish around 4-6 oz with 2 cups of KB's green beans. No starches at night...no pasta, bread rice potatoes of any kind and certainly not fruit.
Meal Six at 9 pm~some kind of Protein. I love Muscle Milk Lite Cookies N Cream Ice Cream.
3. Cardio: HIIT on the treadmill.
Warm up for 5 minutes on the treadmill at 3.0 MPH at a 0 Incline. Then 3.5 MPH at a 15 Incline...hold on for dear life it's going to get really real right now! Do this for 2 minutes. Recover at 3.0 MPH at a 0 Incline for 1 minute Then walk side to side first starting on your less dominant side step together step together at 1.8 MPH at a 5 Incline. 1 minute on each side. Then recover at 3.0 MPH at a 0 Incline. Sprint at 6.0 MPH at a 5 Incline for 2 minutes then recover at 3.0MPH at 0 Incline...that is always going to be your recovery zone. Then to finish the round you will walk backwards at 2.0 MPH at a 7 Incline for 2 minutes. You will repeat this for either a half an hour 45 minutes or an entire hour depending on what your goals are for body fat burn. You are getting a full blown all around leg workout without the boredom of just blankly staring into space.

World of Writing, Interview



-- World of Writing -- 

Author, speaker and life-coach Mark Porteous joins us to day for a World of Writing interview, focusing on how his writing career enables him to make a difference, to have a positive impact on the planet. A natural salesman, Mark relied on his ability to provide excellent customer service to become a top sales rep year after year. While building a very successful career, he often felt like his work conflicted with his spiritual growth. By changing his perspective, he was able to see opportunities he could find nowhere else. Beyond the freedom to set his own schedule and excellent income potential, his job offered him a chance to prove to himself that he could be successful and ethical in a world normally perceived as self-serving and egotistical. Find out more about Mark and his writing career @: www.MarkPorteous.com


Q: How would a good friend describe you?

My good friends know that I am real. Being happy and positive is not an act for me. My friends would tell you that I am congruent with the message I share. They would say I am loyal, encouraging, generous, and respectful. 

Q: What are your long-range and short-range goals and objectives? 

My long-range goal is to help heart-based businesses to share their message, while creating personal prosperity in their own lives. This is done by creating a strategic success plan to optimize all revenue opportunities and offer guidance to transform challenges and barriers into growth and increased potential. 

I have many short-range goals. The biggest project that I am working on is the Birth2012 Conscious Living Festival on 12/22/12. This worldwide event is being coordinated with luminaries and futurists like Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jean Houston, Neale Donald Walsh, Jack Canfield, and many others. 

Q: How do you plan to accomplish your goals?

I am shifting my entire life from a ten-year sales career to speaking, writing, and coaching. My major marketing arenas for coaching and speaking are Internet, live events, and teleconferences. 

To orchestrate the Orlando, Florida venue for Birth2012 I am organizing a local team of experts to help plan, promote, and deliver a celebration worthy of Day One for a new era in social consciousness. 

Q: How do you determine or evaluate success?

I consider myself successful because I have created a balanced lifestyle. I enjoy work and make time to play. I add value and love to the world and I am rewarded with joy and abundance. I measure success in benefit. Do my efforts create benefit for me or for others? Am I able to grow from the experience? I am successful, not because of the amount of money I make, but because of the benefit I am able to share. 

Q: What inspires you?

It may sound cliché, but my children are truly my greatest inspiration. I have always felt a great deal of love in my heart, but since they were born on April 15, 2010, I have learned a whole new level of unconditional love. It is programmed into our DNA to make life better for our offspring. We want them to have more experiences and opportunities than we had. We want their lives to be richer. My children inspired me to stop waiting and start being the best that I can be.

Q: What is your opinion of the world today?

The world is in crisis. Crisis leads to evolutionary quantum jumps. A spiritual renaissance has begun. A world shift in social consciousness is taking place. While this may cause initial discomfort and pain, it is very exciting. I believe my children will help to build a brighter world than most people alive today can even imagine.

Q: What is your contribution to society?

My life's purpose is to help others to maximize their lives by maximizing my own. I am here to enjoy the human experience in all its abundance and to share it with others. I am here to love and be loved. My focus is to help others find and express their greatness.

People have one of two reasons they are not living their dream: a lack of passion or belief. Either the dream is not big enough to inspire them or they do not believe they can achieve it. I can help people to dream bigger and to develop a belief that they can achieve their dreams.

My greatest contribution to society is the two beautiful spirits that we brought into this world and my mission is to continue to exude love and hope. I wrote my book, The Human Experience, as a travel guide to help Eden and Xen (pronounced zen) navigate the journey of life. I hope that it helps others also.
