Reid Stowe: All You Need is Love

With much appreciation for Reid and Soanya, here is Reid Stowe on their amazing journey at sea:

Reid Stowe, 1000 Days Non-Stop at Sea: All You Need is Love, August 25, 2007, Day 125

I take a nice breath of fresh air outside and look around. The deck is wet everywhere from spray and waves coming over. The cockpit is covered in salt and I could feel the salt on my face. We are still beating away to the NNE and the schooner is leaning over steadily plowing through the top of one wave and leaping over another. I've lost track of the days that we have been doing this. I could look on the chart then go back in my journal, perhaps weeks or months in all different directions. But I don't have a habit of doing that. We are headed where we want to go now, so I'll take care of what's happening now. We'll take care of each wave until it reaches the shore. We know we can always do more. On land there may have been a certain boldness that is necessary to go to sea for a long time. Once here, however, the wind and waves erode boldness and inner strength is left and we have to adapt to it because we were not meant to live on the sea or in space even though we have the desire to experience what is out here and find out what we are made of. This is my opportunity to embody more light and love and for people to see me in that way. I hope I can adapt physically to this environment so I can achieve this understanding of love and light on the sea and reflect it on humanity. This is not just an adventure story. The nature of what we are doing brings other human experiences to the forefront. How could we go on if we didn't love it? It's the love that wells up and sustains me when I'm tired and doubtful. It's the love that I heal myself with. It's love that I give Soanya as much as I can so that we can do this together as a man and a woman experiencing each other. Our ability to go on will have a lot to do with how we live in love.

Whoopee. It's RAINING!!!! Dr. Emoto and blessing water.

What a beautiful day. Late last night I heard heavy thunder coming my way and when I opened the drapes, could see steady flashes of lightning on the horizon. It took about an hour but the thunder grew louder and louder until the bright, white light flashed through the drapes and heavy rain hit the windows. I went to sleep, comforted.

I've always liked rain -- I like balance, too, and have never had the desire to live in an area that has too much. We've had very dry weather in the 90's for several weeks and yesterday the wind blew the dead leaves along the ground like a very hot fall day. I appreciate the wind that blew this storm to us. The plants, grass, and trees are just following their wisdom -- trees dropping leaves to conserve energy. Plants go into a type of dormant period during really hot weather.

But today was magnificent! I woke up to the promise of heavy, dark grey clouds and I wasn't disappointed. The music of thunder grumbled for several hours as it drizzled, poured, drizzled, then grew into steady rain. I opened my windows several times just to smell the moist air and listen to the rain gurgling in the downspout.

I've always loved water. I like to drink it. I love to swim, to watch ocean waves and hear the shush as they wash over the sand, to enjoy lakes and rivers, and to sit on a porch wrapped in a quilt and listen to the rain. It's an earth meditation for me.

I read about Dr. Masuru Emoto's work using the principle of Hado and water took on new meaning for me. He has photographed crystals of water affected by thoughts sent to it.

Hado creates words. Words are the vibrations of nature. Therefore beautiful words create beautiful nature. Ugly words create ugly nature. This is the root of the universe.” by Masaru Emoto

His theories fit right in with Abraham-Hicks and deliberate reality creation. Hado in action says that everything is vibration and when we change the vibration, the substance is changed.

So, what does this mean for you and me? Most of the earth is water -- 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water and there is more in the ground. 66% of the human body is water.

I invite you to look at the photographs of water at Dr. Emoto's site, Hadolife, and then think of how beautiful your body becomes when you love it, when you say beautiful words to the water you drink, and to the shower or bath that feels so good. How powerful your words of appreciation are when your spirit is nourished by the rivers and streams and rain.

Blessings to water. Thank you for sustaining me. For nourishing me. For uplifting my spirit every day.

Abraham-Hicks and the leading edge

Photo: Guggenheim Museum Bilboa, Spain

As physical creatures, you are upon the leading edge of thought. You are here so poignantly, so deliberately, so finely focused in this time and place...that in your very precision of experience, you are taking thought beyond that which it has been.

Abraham-Hicks, 10/4/92

Speaking of being on the leading edge...I recently watched a DVD called Sketches of Frank Gehry about the leading edge architect. I'm fascinated by his creations like the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain shown in this photo above, but I think I was as interested in how he created his life as I was his buildings. An "ordinary man" building extraordinary creations who said he fell into architecture -- who convinced others to believe in him and his designs, to put millions of dollars on the line as well as their reputations for choosing such unconventional designs. And he did it very successfully. One artist made a comment that it made him feel that Frank was setting up an arena where something incredible could occur. And where does he get his ideas? In one scene in the documentary Frank describes how his inspiration comes from anywhere -- like the shadows and forms from the trash in a wastebasket he picked up.

You have been oriented that you must pay a price in order to get somewhere, and in the process, you've come to believe that getting there must be really important, therefore, it must be your purpose. And we say, but if you're not getting to joy, then you've gotten nowhere. Joy is really where you're going.

Abraham-Hicks, 12/13/03

I'm also intrigued by Reid Stowe and Soanya Ahmad who are sailing their schooner, Anne, in a heart shape in the South Atlantic for 1,000 Days Non-stop at Sea. What strikes me is not only the adventure of their journey, but the beauty of their appreciation of each other and the world they are seeing. From Reid's August 11th post, "We sail on in beautiful weather almost in disbelief that each day and night can be more beautiful than the next. How many times can I see it before I become jaded or maxed out? I would like to believe that I have the ability to keep appreciating and being more and more grateful. The same with Soanya. She is so good and getting better. I have to believe that it's in me to keep treating her right and keep taking care to appreciate her. It's like questioning my ability to do the 1000 day voyage. I have to believe that I have the ability to keep going."

When Madonna was at her height of popularity I attended a personal growth workshop and the trainer asked us who gave Madonna permission to act the way she did on stage? Who told her she could be famous? She had a dream and she believed in it, just like the people I've mentioned above.

As Abraham says -- our true self, our inner self -- believes in our dreams and knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that we can have them. Only our own thoughts that we can't have it stop us.

And I offer this to you.

You are an expression of love walking the earth. You are adored by life itself. Your dreams are valuable, not only to yourself, but to all of us. You have permission to try, fall flat on your face, and like Thomas Edison, find the 1,000th way not to create a light bulb. You have permission to succeed. You have permission to change your mind. You have permission to dream. You have permission to love yourself just as you are.

We are wanting to awaken within you, your memory of how wonderful you are! How brilliant you are! How good you are! How worthy of whatever you are wanting you are!

Abraham-Hicks, 1/13/91

Nothing is more exhilarating than to dance through life recognizing that the Universe is there to yield to you whatever you want whenever you want it.

Abraham-Hicks, 2/12/94

No matter what it is, if you really want it, and if you get out of the way of it, it will happen. It must be. It is Law. It can be no other way. It's the way this Universe is established. If you want it and you relax, it will happen.

Abraham-Hicks, 9/21/02

Abraham-Hicks: The nature of your Inner Being

So, your reason for being here is to be physically focused and connected to your Source for the purpose of taking the Source of pure, positive Energy beyond that which it has been before. That's how this physical earth plane got here. Somebody like you from broader, Non-physical perspective imagined a delicious physical experience, and in that pure flow of Energy it is come to be.

Abraham-Hicks, 2/13/93

Once you emerged into these bodies, all of you did not come into this body, just a part of you. A part of your focus is come forth here, while a larger part of you, a broader part of you, a very much older, wiser part of you remains in Non-physical.

Abraham-Hicks, 1/13/91

Your Sixth Sense is your Inner Being who has a full view of all you are living, all that you have ever lived, and all that is in your future. Your Sixth Sense is your Inner Being with broader perspective of that which you are. Your Sixth Sense is your broad perspective, you can call it God perspective, you can call it Inner Being, you can call it Soul, you can call it spiritual guide. It is the Non-physical part of you that has very keen awareness of that which you are. Your Sixth Sense is your feeling barometer that lets you know the distance between what you want and what you are currently vibrating....your gut feeling.

Abraham-Hicks, 1/23/93

You acknowledge that your Inner Being exists? And we say to you that your Inner Being is very old, it has lived thousands of Life experiences. Your Inner Being sits now as the culmination of all that you have lived -- very decided, very sure and very happy -- in a place that by your standards, you would say is pure ecstasy. Your role, your work is to harmonize with you, which means -- think thoughts that make you feel good -- Speak words that make you feel good.

Abraham-Hicks, 7/4/91

You have an Inner Being within you, that has been walking with you all the days of this experience, who is aware of all that you want, and all that you are. We are wanting you to find a very real connection with that which you are -- with your broader Non-physical counterpart -- with your God-force -- with All That Is -- with your Higher Self -- with your Soul or Inner Being or whatever label you are wanting to assign it, so that you can be and do and have that which you've come forth to be, do and have.

Abraham-Hicks, 5/2/92 B

The only way for you or any to reach this place of understanding of this life experience, in the context in which it was intended, is to reconnect with who you are to gain that sense of the overall picture sense of the, I am and why I am here.

Abraham-Hicks, G 8/1/92

You intended to come forth into physical experience to live, to love, to laugh, to play -- to look for reasons to feel good!

Abraham-Hicks, G 6/7/91

Without your perspective, Universal expansion would not be. It's time for you to take credit for the important part you play, and yield the good stuff to yourself by virtue of your own self-appreciation... If we were standing in your physical shoes, a day would not go by that we would not make a list of positive aspects of ourselves, and of those that are closest to us that mean the most to us in terms of interaction. A day would not go by that we would not count our blessings, and express them in every way we could. In that acknowledgment, you bring yourself in alignment with how You really feel about you. How You really feel about you is absolute adoration. And if you ever feel anything less about you -- or about anyone -- you are not You.

Abraham-Hicks, 9/28/02

Take your Inner Being everywhere you go. If you take your Inner Being to the party, it's going to be a good party! If you take your Inner Being, the food that you eat will be received perfectly by the cells of your body. Every word that comes out of your mouth will be beneficial to everyone who hears them with their ears, or with their vibration. Don't go anywhere without your Inner Being. That's what "Allowing" is. Always having your Inner Being present. And then, anything else that happens is always orchestrated perfectly by Law of Attraction.

Abraham-Hicks, 2/17/01

Everything you want flows to you through loving who you are

I want to share part of a message I received last night from my friends in spirit:

We do wish to speak to you about many things that are manifesting in your life right now for you always have manifestation. Always. Always. When your thinking is the same you don't notice this because what you create appears to be the same. But now your thinking has changed and so it appears to you that new things are coming into your life....

The most powerful part of the message is that for each one of us changing how we think about ourself changes our world. The same "things" could be happening -- dating, marriage, jobs, travel, friends -- but the difference is in how we think -- and it follows that how we think comes from how we think about ourself.

That last sentence was a mouthful so I'll say it in other ways. All we have to do is love ourselves and our thinking will come into alignment with our desires. From this all we desire will flow to us -- it must, that is how the law of attraction works. And because we love ourself we will experience what comes into our life in a joyful way. Think of how you feel when you are falling in love with someone -- everything you see is wonderful. That's what feeling good is -- loving ourselves. That's who we really are -- we are love in expression.

How we view ourselves grows our experience of life. We are the fertile ground that supports the lush forests and gardens of our life. And it is this experience of being so creative, so rich in expression, and so powerful in feeling and allowing the life force within us that makes our reality seem so different to us.

Fall in love with yourself. Treat yourself to something you really want. Take yourself to someplace you've always wanted to go. Fall deliriously in love with how wonderful you are. Love yourself and let your beauty shine into life through your desires and your creativity and giving of who you are. We need you!

Chief Joseph: Time is Money

I was looking for some quotes about time for an article when I ran across this delightful information from Chief Joseph. Some people will say we must exchange energy to have abundance -- that you have to produce to receive -- as if it is an equal exchange of so much work for so much abundance. I don't believe that's true -- some people win millions in the lottery or inherit. It's all energy. It's all available to us in abundance by a loving Universe. Abraham says all we have to do is dangle our feet in the bay and relax to allow our desires to come to us -- and quickly. This interesting perspective of Chief Joseph speaks to the flowing nature of time and money:

John Cali

Joseph -- and other spirit teachers -- have often said time is an illusion. Not in the sense its not real, at least to us humans. But in the sense its not a "fixed" commodity, inflexible and unchanging.

Chief Joseph

Time, in fact, is very flexible. Almost everyone has had experiences where time seems to "drag." Or where it seems to "fly."

The dragging and the flying are far closer to the truth of what time really is than what your world imagines it to be -- "a fixed commodity, inflexible and unchanging," in Johns words.

When you focus on getting into the flow of energy from your higher self, your soul, all the resources you need to manifest your hearts desires become available to you. And those resources include what you call time.

You have all the time in the Universe when you're focused on aligning your energy with the energy of your higher self. When you're focused on aligning your energy with what you want to manifest in your life.

When you do that aligning, you can literally expand time.

And the same is true of money.

Friends, you have available to you all the time in Universe. And so too do you have available to you all the money in the Universe. Time and money are simply expressions of energy. Energy is limitless and infinite. And so time truly is money.

Are you beginning to see where were going with this?

If you will focus on flowing your energy, on being aligned with your higher self, you will never experience any lack in either time or money. Both are simply forms of energy.

And energy is all there is. Albeit in many different forms, physical and non-physical.

But its all just energy.

And you are free to expand or contract that energy as you will.

Time is money. And money is time. They are interchangeable, both simply different expressions of energy. Nothing more, nothing less.

Once you experience the truth, the reality of energy, you will know -- really know -- you live in a vast sea of abundance. And you can have however much, or little, you choose to allow into your life -- however much, or little, of it you choose to "scoop up."

So, friends, do you want to go to the seaside with a little cup, or a bucket, or a tanker truck?

Its up to you.

Bashar: All possible versions of reality already exist, just select what you want

I'm working on some articles and was just going to take a bit from this Bashar quote, but it's so good I'm going to put the whole thing here. Bashar is funny, loving, and wise and I always enjoy his perspective. Thank you, Bashar!

All possible "versions" of your reality already exist. In fact, they are all here - right under your nose - right Here, right Now. However, most of these "versions" are invisible to us, and they become "visible" only when we "tune" ourselves (via our beliefs), to be compatible and resonant with the frequencies of any one particular "version".

As an analogy, if your computer screen offers you many choices, and all you have to do is click on one of them to select it, then your imagination is the total of all the available choices on the screen. Moving the mouse to the desired choice is like focusing your imagination on one particular vision. And then clicking on that choice is like using your feelings to activate your selection.

Misconception: "Seeing is Believing" (What we perceive determines what we believe.)

The Actuality: "Believing is Seeing" (What we believe determines what we perceive!)

As an analogy:

A TV set does not "create" the program it's displaying. It just "selects" it and "allows it in"....

Realizing this, it should make it feel even EASIER to create/select/allow the version of reality you wish to experience, because


All possible version of reality already all exist! (When they say God is Infinite, they're not kidding.)

3 Phases for receiving the "version" of reality you prefer:

1. See it. (mental)

Visualize it. Imagine it. Daydream it. Visualize it clearly. You dont need to visualize it for a long time. Short time is sufficient, but you need to visualize it clearly. You need to have a solid clear picture. Visualizing it creates the blueprint, so see it in great detail. See it ==> Become an efficient Mental Antenna to receive this "version" of reality.

2. Feel it. (emotional)

Get excited & passionate about it! How would you feel if you had it now? Feel that now! Plug into your vision with all your emotions & all your senses, as if you had it now! Involve all your senses - imagine smelling it, touching it, tasting it, etc.
Feel it ==> Become an efficient Emotional Antenna to receive this "version" of reality.

3. Be it. (physical)

Physical action. Do it! To ground the experience. Do actions that most closely mimic the actions you "see" yourself doing in your vision. Gather and use whatever props mimic that scenario, and do a "dry run". Doing this "make believe" physical action trains the body consciousness. This makes it "real for you now", so the universe then delivers it to you. NOTE: This physical action does not directly cause this desired reality to manifest. Instead, this physical action creates a more precise vibration in yourself, making you a better antenna to receive it, by you becoming more aligned to the same vibration. The reality you desire already exists. You do not have to create it. You only have to receive it.
