Feng Shui Tips for Luck All Year Long

Tip 1

Ellen Whitehurst

Seed your day by getting lucky first thing in the morning!  Even if you’re traditionally not a morning person, 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 opening 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, imagine 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. You might feel fully present as you express,“Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

Tip 2

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 day long.

Tip 3

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 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 when their goal is reached. Lucky people expect success and so they often achieve it.

Tip 4

Lucky people 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 she is when she finds personal peace and some clarity and calm.  See?  Lucky!

These tips apply to anyone (even you) at any time and in any place. Exercised with regularity and belief, these tips can help you or anyone to create a luckier life filled with health, happiness, love, and prosperity.

Some People Just Need Killing…

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Theocrats Put Death Mark on Heroine,
Punish Father in Fantasy Saga’s 3rd Book

Lancaster, Texas (July 16, 2008) — Some people just need killing.

Will the ones to die be Helen Andros, outspoken first-generation heroine of the Green Stone of Healing® fantasy saga, and her newly reconciled father?

The astonishing sequel to The Vision and Fallout, The Scorpions Strike debuts today in paperback and ebook versions. Helen and Lord James Mordecai endure proscription and savage punishment by the state-sanctioned Temple of Kronos.

Under a Temple death mark, Helen learns basic energy manipulation from Maguari, the otherworldly Mist-Weaver, and first uses her green gem for healing and saving lives. Lord James’ political enemies hound him relentlessly and a treacherous ally plots his assassination.

The Scorpions Strike is fast-paced, action-packed and full of surprises,” writes Anne Garber, managing director of evalu8.org. “Just when you think you have figured out where these events might be heading, everything you imagined is thrown out the window.”

Calling the series “masterful,” Garber concludes, “Hooray for Helen Andros and the behaviour-models she has spawned. What an important void this character, and C.L. Talmadge’s inspirational story have filled!”

HealingStone Books today also made The Vision and Fallout available as paperbacks. Readers may browse through all three books online for free at http://www.greenstoneofhealing.com/browsebooks.shtml.

The first two novels in the series have drawn high praise.

“Exceptional job of writing, and keeping this story tightly together in a genre that is certainly difficult to do such, our author is top-notch,” Shirley P. Johnson writes about Fallout in Midwest Book Review. “If you love an intense read, packed with sinister power seekers, grueling heartless characters, yet laced with mystical moments, the lure of peace and healing, and the hope that goodness will prevail, this read is for you.”

“Helen is a formidable protagonist,” Kirkus Discoveries says about The Vision.

Over several generations of strong female characters, the saga explores what happens when politics and piety collide–how state support for an exclusionary religion leads to worldwide cataclysm and the utter destruction of an island nation called Azgard.

Author C.L. Talmadge describes the series as, “a blue-state version of ‘end-of-the-world’ fiction without a traditional religious viewpoint. Instead, it examines alternative spiritual themes and sets forth a different interpretation of free will and good and evil.”

Throughout the tale, the heroines and their mysterious jewel offer a healing, inclusive alternative to a government that persecutes those who do not look like or share the religious beliefs of the ones in power.

Readers who become fond of Helen and other characters will be delighted that they reincarnate, affirming that not even death can separate loved ones (or enemies).

Talmadge’s writing career began in 1976. A political columnist syndicated by North Star Writers Group, she has been on staff or freelanced for numerous media including Business Week, the Dallas Times Herald, Forbes, the International Herald Tribune, The New York Times and Reuters America.

The author discusses this latest book and how the series speaks to events today:
