Summer is upon us. The children are out of school.
The weather is getting warmer.
This is a time for a change of pace. But will I give that to myself?
As some past summers faded into fall, I realized it was over before I had
enjoyed it. That will not happen this year!
Changing your pace takes intention. What would feed your body and
soul this summer? What would help you enjoy your family in a different
way? How can you best serve your higher reason for being here as you
partner with your inner spirit?
We're back to the basic question found in "The Secret." What do you
really want? What would your life look like if you created your summer
according to what you want most?
Once you know what you want, see it in your mind's eye. Be there
already. Feel it. Thank it. Know it.
What is next? If your inner wisdom were prodding you to action that is
in alignment with what you just saw, what would you feel yourself doing?
This is part of the process of changing our default mode. (Click
below for my new e-book) Will you continue rudderless through the summer
or will you take time to decide what you want, envision it, and then do
what your intuition tells you is the action to take? Will you continue in
the same mode as during the year or will you allow yourself a refreshing
change of pace.
What would be refreshing to you? Will habit dictate what your summer
will be like or will you decide?
I'm going to discover the many wonderful trails around Vancouver, WA
on my new bike. I'm already watching my vegetables grow. I'm going to
sit on my back swing and listen to my fountain.
And when I am tempted to go down that old path, I'm going to do what
I'm suggesting in my e-book. I'm setting the default mode for my life.
I'm not leaving it to habit.
I encourage you to join me.
Blessings and May your Summer be Spectacular (as only you can
Years ago I saw an episode of Star Trek the Next Generation about a
species that was undergoing a transformational leap. A person of that
species was found adrift in space with amnesia. Curiously, he had
unexplainable symptoms like waves of pain, energy bursting uncontrollably
from his body and extraordinarily fast cell mytosis. During the course of
the show, as his symptoms grew more intense, he finally remembered who he
was and what was happening. At the end, he completely transformed into a
being of light – a grid of light in the shape of a person.
Inka elders say that Homo sapiens are evolving into Homo luminis. From
my experience, I would agree. We humans are undergoing a rapid
transformation much like the person of light. I believe it is as radical
a transformation as fish evolving into amphibians. And our evolutionary
process is happening within lifetimes as well as between generations.
Sometimes I feel much like the person in the Star Trek show. I have
experienced – along with some of my clients and friends - inexplicable
flu-like symptoms including body aches, headaches or digestive distress,
unexplained heat coursing through the body, a sense of the nervous system
"shattering", or a sense of the body losing cohesion like the cells could
fly apart at any moment. Thankfully, we have Red-Osier Dogwood Flower
Essence as an ally.

What if you could change the belief systems that
limit and control your creative potential in life? What if you could let
go of those voices that judge you and then in turn judge others.
If we continually see life in limitations we quickly take our place
among the helpless victims who believe that they have no choice, that life
is hard work and nothing but a struggle. On the other hand there are those
who can see joy in every day, waiting for the next discovery and a reason
to play. Where do you want to live; in the center of discovering life or
always trying to re-cover from it?
What happens to us? Where do we lose sight of the adventure and the
Sometimes the chaos gets to be so overwhelming that the journey comes
to a screeching halt and the keeper of "helplessness" steps forward and
assures you that life has no purpose and you are the victim of its whim.
At this point you have been given an opportunity to make a change. By
investing some time to discover new ways of looking at your life, change is
This is where you can shift from the limitations of your emotional

There are only three basic elements in all efforts to make a change in
your life. One is to realize you desire change, next is the dedication to

New E-Book! "How to Change Your Default Mode of
Living Life the Easy Way!
by Arlene Arnold
Do you sometimes find you have arrived at a location, but you don't
remember driving there? Your attention was elsewhere in your thoughts,
yet your memory took you through the motions.
I sometimes find this disturbing. I do not remember the drive. It is
as if I was elsewhere. I can even feel a bit disoriented as I look around
to see where I am. It's as if I have been under a spell, as if something
else was in control.
Life can be like that. Knee jerk reactions to situations are
predictable. Just as fast as you would pull your hand off a hot stove,
you react to something disturbing. The pattern has been set. You react
with the same emotions and the same thoughts every time—different people,
different situations but the same reaction. To re-act is to act again—to
act in the same manner as before, to replay the same patterns.
I call this our "default mode." For those of you who work with
computers, you set a default mode for what program will handle what job;
for what information will be used; for what order files will be shown to
The default mode you have set will come up the same way every time
unless you change it to a new default mode. You have the ability to
change what happens if you take the time to let the computer know what you
That same opportunity is available in life. If you don't like your
knee jerk reactions or they don't give you what you need, you can change
them. You just have to be willing to pay attention to the mode your
reactions are set in, decide what you want instead, tell your unconscious
what you want, and then ask for some help to make the changes.
So how exactly does that work and what benefits can come from changing
the default mode of operation in life? That's what this e-book is about.
