Wants and Desires.

If any thought you think related to what you want feels bad, you are not wanting what you want, you are pushing what you want away from you. It doesn’t matter how logical, rational or sane the thought is as it relates to your want, if it FEELS BAD you are pushing what you want away from yourself.

Trapped in the Feeling Bad Loop

Question: I attract what I don't want. I can't seem to stop doing that. I feel terribly guilty about it.

Answer: Feeling guilty about attracting what you don't want will only make you more effective in attracting more of the things you don't want. You're trapped in a loop of feeling bad. You try to attract what you do want and don't because "your focus is on your fear that you won't attract what you do want."

Instead of focusing on your fear, focus on whatever it takes to feel good and all the others things you want will come into your life naturally. Focus on what is absolutely under your control and what is absolutely under your control is feeling happiness and joy regardless of external events because the experience of happiness and joy is an internal event..

Listen to music that makes you feel good. Read books and articles that make you feel good. Do exercises that make you feel good. Eat foods that make you feel good. Visit stores that make you feel good. Take short trips that make you feel good. Call friends that make you feel good. All the things you do that make you feel good will attract good things to you, guaranteed. The law of attraction is a simple law; good feelings attract good things and bad feelings attract bad things.


When I focus on happiness and joy there is not one problem that
bothers me. Oh yes, I have problems, they just don't bother me.


Happiness and Joy ATTRACT

All the money in the world won't attract happiness and joy to you but happiness and joy will allow you to attract to yourself all the money you want with no effort at all.

Happiness and joy attract while depression and unhappiness are un-attractive because they do not attract the good things you want . In fact, unhappiness and depression push away and keep at a distance the very things you do want...

An abundance of happiness and joy will ALLOW you to naturally attract an abundance of everything else you want to yourself. It's how the law of attraction works,

Why I like Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell isn't about winning a popularity contest, He is about being true to his integrity and bringing out in people what needs to be brought out, which can be their worst or their very best. This video puts it all in perspective. This is Simon Cowell at his worst and at his very best in one video. In this video, he is as human as human as can be and as honest as they come. We all have a lot to learn from this video.

Depression - My Story

Disclamer: The information contained in this article dealing with depression is not intended 
as a substitute for religious or medical advice. You should consult a member of the clergy or 
a professional health care practitioner for that kind of information. On the other hand, if you 
choose to act upon the information provided in this article (which is your constitutional 
right to do so), the author is not responsible for the consequences of your actions. .

Depression, from my point of view, is cured when we become aware that it is a spiritual issue and not an inherit physical flaw or defect. This is my story about how I cured myself of chronic depression when the medical profession failed me. I am not advocating that what worked for me in regards to curing depression will work for anyone else. On the other hand, after reading my story, many people have told me that my way of overcoming depression is an option worth considering.

In a desperate attempt to cure myself, I read everything I could on the subject of depression. I took the psychological approach as well as the religious approach. I experienced some relief using these methods, but eventually the feelings returned. The stronger the depression, the more aggressive my search. Self-help courses and recovery groups brought minimal relief but never a cure. Each improvement was eventually followed by a setback.

I began to believe that I was inherently flawed. It was even suggested that I was possessed by an evil entity, a thought I rejected. And yet, when the feelings were at there strongest, I doubted myself and believed I might actually be possessed by an evil entity and became even more frightened. I didn't know it at the time but I was scaring myself to death.

One day, I realized just how terrified I was. I felt like a house divided against itself. Desperate feelings require desperate measures: Voluntarily I went in for psychiatric evaluation. I began weekly therapy and was prescribed a drug which altered my mood almost immediately.

I gained many insights during therapy, but eventually the prescription drugs caused me to experience the side effects of hyperactivity, chills and headaches. I felt as if the cure was worse than the disease itself and so I took myself off the drugs without consulting my doctor. I did, however, continue therapy until I decided that I no longer needed it.

I thought therapy had solved my problem with depression until I had an extremely devastating setback and experienced the worst depression of my life. Suicidal thoughts began to intrude into my mind, and yet no matter what, I would not surrender. I lived with my depression for years, I tolerated it and put up with it. If depression was going to kill me, to squeeze the life out of me, it would do so without my help.

I struggled through my life, day after day, hiding my depression from everyone, but when I got home and I was alone I would realize I was exhausted. I just wanted to lie on the couch and do nothing. I felt hopeless. After many years of living this way and contrary to professional advice, I isolated myself, knowing when I was alone with my depression, I felt it the strongest.

If it was going to defeat me I wanted to feel it absolutely. I was tired of running from the monster within. One day I realized that I was at a standoff with my depression. It wasn't getting any worse and it wasn't getting any better. I realized that it wasn't going to kill me, and it wasn't going to let me enjoy life either. Then I decided to start analyzing what was going on with me. I knew I couldn't feel any worse, so I might as well treat my condition as a mystery that needed solving rather than a problem to fear.

First, I went back to the basics. I looked up the word depression in Webster's dictionary; it is defined as a disorder marked especially by sadness, inactivity, difficulty in thinking and concentrating, excessive sleep, feelings of dejection and hopelessness, and sometimes suicidal tendencies. Yes, I agreed, the dictionary was intellectually correct. I experienced all of those things, but when I explored my feelings, I made some amazing discoveries.

One of my discoveries was that my depression was actually made up of a variety of strong unexpressed feelings interwoven together. These feeling included unexpressed anger This entanglement of unexpressed emotions left me feeling like a net had been dropped over my spirit and pulled tight. The more I struggled, the more entangled in them I became.

Instead of judging my feelings of depression I decided to observe them. I noticed that I was afraid of my feelings. I also observed that throughout my life whatever I feared eventually became my enemy. How did I make my depressed feelings my enemy? I did it by accepting someone else's belief that my depressed feelings were dangerous. By accepting this belief unedited, I erroneously concluded that my feelings could lead me to killing myself. In making my feelings the enemy I gave them power over me; the moment I did that, they dominated and controlled my life for over 30 years.

To make my feelings the enemy, I also had to convince myself that something outside of me was responsible for what I felt. I accomplished this by blaming others for my feelings. I blamed God, my parents, my teachers, my circumstances, my genes, my past, and my environment for my negative emotions. Once I realized that I was doing it to myself, I simultaneously, experienced a sense of sadness and relief. I felt sadness because I realized that I had been causing myself to suffer. I felt relief because if I could cause my depression, I could cure it, and that excited me.

My inner guide uses depressed feelings to let me know when I'm off track in my thinking, trying too hard, headed in the wrong direction, or not taking proper care of myself. I no longer struggle with "depressed feelings".. When they comes upon me, I embrace them, In embracing them, I can hear the message of guidance and advice that is being directed to me. When I hear the message accurately, the depressed feelings leave me, and I am filled with an exuberance and a renewed passion for life.

If you are willing to let your feelings of depression become your friends--if you are willing to learn from them, embrace them--you too will once again be excited about living life generously and passionately.

The Shortcut to Curing Yourself of Depression

Today, when an occasional feeling of depression washes over I use a shortcut I discovered to make the depressed feeling melt away from my life effortlessly. Here it is:

The shortcut in successfully dealing with depressed feelings is a simple one but it does take practice. The shortcut is this; allow your depressed feelings to harmlessly pass you by like clouds in the sky and they will. You do this by choosing to  intensely 'feel what you are feeling' without judging what you feel in any way. Resisting depression makes the depression worse while intensely 'feeling what you feel' (if you stay with it) will make the depression go poof.

In life we are either expressing ourselves or depressing ourselves. These days, when an occasional feeling of depression washes over me, I ask myself which thoughts and/or feeling am I depressing. One I discovered the thought or feelings that are depressing me, I express them, release them, let them go. Once I release those thoughts that were depressing me, I am set them free so I can return to my natural state of mind which is happiness, harmony and peace of mind.

The more you focus on your stress, the more stressed out you become. It's
the law. Whatever you focus your attention on, you attract more of the same.



The reason to do what feels good is because your feelings are your inner guidance system that tell you that you are thinking thoughts that are taking you in the direction you want to go. Conversely, feeling bad tells you that you are thinking thoughts that are taking you in the opposition direction from where you want to go, away from the success you wish to achieve.


Your desire to make something happen is all you need to make it happen. The only reason you won't make something happen is if your fear of it not happening becomes stronger than your desire to make it happen.

If you believe you have to know how to make something happen in order for it to happen, it will never happen.. A Baby DOES NOT have to know how to walk in order to walk. A child learns how to do things by doing them. Your desire to achieve something will teach you how to do it..


All 'HOW TO' BOOKS are not how to books at all, they are history books. The author is sharing with you how he did something, after the fact. Before the fact, he didn't have a clue. His desire showed him how to do what he wanted to do and once he did it, he wrote a book about it. After you achieve your success, you too will be able to write a best selling 'how to' book!

Insights About INTUITION

I resigned my vice president position of a national skincare company in 1999 to make a living by my intuition, alone, going wherever it led me... It's been an most rewarding and interesting journey.

You can't force, manipulate or cajole your intuition to work for you. however you can "allow" it to work for you and it will.

Intuition is like a 'psychic valve' in your head. When it opens up knowledge spontaneously streams into your conscious mind without any effort on your part required.

What motivated me to develop my intuition was my teachers telling me I wasn't as smart as my dad and uncles who attended the same school.

Intuition allows you to directly access information from the 'organizing intelligence of the universe," a spark of which lives inside each and every one of us that connects us to one another in very real and tangible ways.

Intuition is consider to be 'SuperLogic' because it
spontaneously gives us precise logical answers that our rational mind could never give us. Another name for Intuition is 'natural knowledge."

Intuitive impulses comes from the higher part of the personality that lives beyond our logical and rational way of seeing things.

In this increasing complex world of ours, intuitive, creative, feel good, thinking is replacing logical, rational, confusing, complicated, feel bad thinking..

My intuition is like a light switch. If it feel goods the light switch is on for me to proceed. If it feels bad, the light switch is off and I wait for the next feel good impulse.

One of the reasons I developed my intuitive skills is because processing information and making decisions logically took too long.

My intuition also works like a traffic light. After asking a question, I pause and the look at the traffic light in my mind's eye. Red light means Wait. Yellow Light means proceed with Caution, Green light means Go, Go, Go




A Woman's Week At The Gym

Dear Diary,

For my birthday this year, my Husband (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me.

Although I am still in great shape since being a high school football cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try.

I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named Christo, who identified himself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear.

My husband seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The club encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my progress.



Started my day at 6:00 a.m. Tough to get out of bed, but found it was well worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Christo waiting for me. He is something of a Greek god - with blond hair, dancing eyes and a dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!!

Christo gave me a tour and showed me the machines. I enjoyed watching the skillful way in which he conducted his aerobics class after my workout today. Very inspiring!

Christo was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was already aching from holding it in the whole time he was around. This is going to be a FANTASTIC week-!!



I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door. Christo made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the air then he put weights on it! My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill, but I made the full mile. His rewarding smile made it all worthwhile. I feel GREAT-!! It's a whole new life for me.



The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it. I believe I have a hernia in both pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot.

Christo was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered other club members. His voice is a little too perky for that early in the morning and when he scolds, he gets this nasally whine that is VERY annoying.

My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Christo put me on the stair monster. Why the hell would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators? Christo told me it would help me get in shape and enjoy life. He said some other shit too.



Asshole was waiting for me with his vampire-like teeth exposed as his thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl. I couldn't help being a half an hour late - it took me that long to tie my shoes.

He took me to work out with dumbbells. When he was not looking, I ran and hid in the restroom. He sent some skinny bitch to find me.

Then, as punishment, he put me on the rowing machine -- which I sank.


I hate that bastard Christo more than any human being has ever hated any other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic, anorexic little aerobic instructor. If there was a part of my body I could move without unbearable pain, I would beat him with it.

Christo wanted me to work on my triceps. I don't have any triceps! And if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the damn barbells or anything that weighs more than a sandwich.

The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition teacher. Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir director?



Satan left a message on my answering machine in his grating, shrilly voice wondering why I did not show up today. Just hearing his voice made me want to smash the machine with my planner; however, I lacked the strength to even use the TV remote and ended up catching eleven straight hours of the Weather Channel.


I'm having the Church van pick me up for services today so I can go and thank GOD that this week is over. I will also pray that next year my husband will choose a gift for me that is fun -- like a root canal or a hysterectomy. I still say if God had wanted me to bend over, he would have sprinkled the floor with diamonds!!!

Ok Mr. Zappone what do you do when your life is so screwed up that you don't know where to begin. How do you gain peace of mind?

Answer: The thought that your life is so screwed up that you don't know where to begin to gain peace of mind is a POWERFUL one... It is that thought that stops you from achieving the peace of mind you seek.

The starting point to the peace of mind you seek is to realize that you are responsible for every thought you think AFTER YOU BECOME AWARE that you are responsible for every thought you think. In other words, up to this moment of time, you are not responsible for the people, places, situations and events your thoughts have attracted into your life. However, from this moment on, you are...

Money Attitudes #474 to #503


L.O.A. -The Simplified Version


Feeling GOOD attracts good things to you such as love, health and prosperity. The more you stay in the 'feeling good' mood, the more good things you will attract to yourself effortlessly. The opposite is also true. It's the law. It's a law of the universe that you cannot change but you can argue, resist and fight with it. However, all that will get you is feeling bad. And all feeling bad will get you is feeling worse. And if you stay in the feeling worse zone, you can count on attracting bad things to yourself that you neither want or desire so don't go there. Do what it takes to stay in the feeling good state of mind as much as you can.... It is easier than you think.

The Resistance CURE

The persistent problems we have in our life whether they are love, relationship, health or money matters can be traced back to our 'unwittingly' resistance to the answers and solutions to our problems.  

Whatever (problems) we resist, persists.

Thinking WE have to find the answer immediately to our problem creates the resistance that stops us from finding the answer.

Thinking WE have to do something in particular to solve the problem stops us from solving our problem.

Thinking OUR problem is a life or death matter stops us from finding the answer to our problems.

Thinking OUR problem is urgent or important stops us from solving the problem.

Anything about OUR problems that creates negative feelings (resistance) inside our body stops us from solving our problems.

The negative feelings we experience inside OUR body is the resistance that stops us from solving our problem.

The only thing you can do to make your resistance dissolve so answers and solutions to your problems can spontaneously appears, in your life, is to OBSERVE your resistance. Anything you do other than OBSERVING, WITNESSING or WATCHING your resistance will make your resistance to your problem stronger and stop you forever from solving your problem.

Since resistance is FUTILE.... the only solution to your resistance is to simply observe it, go play and when you least expect it the answers to your problems will appear, in time, out of thin air as if by magic. The answers to your problems could appear in the form of another person you encounter while playing...

Be open, be trusting, suspend judgments and the answers and solutions you seek will find their way home to you, guaranteed.

Eleven (11) Inspirational Thoughts For Today


This person wants a hand up, not a hand out...

I received this letter (see below) this evening from a Mrs. Cruz. I am not in a position to help her out financially because I am currently helping out two other families financially If you can help her out financially or know of someone who can help her out, please contact her at If you don't know of someone, please copy this message and pass it on to others that might be able to help her out - Thank you. - Frederick Zappone

Dear Mr. Zappone,

I am a senior citizen who is about to lose my home of twenty eight years. My husband was in a terrible truck accident in 1994.He has been disabled since that time. How did this happened? A fork lift driver on the job for the very first day, with no experience at all, pushed one of the pallets and it hit my husband and knocked him to the pavement below. He crushed his back and one foot and broke his arm. The doctors did the best they could with steel screws and metal pins they also had to take bones from other parts of his body to replace the ones that were crushed. He has never been the same.

I am not able to get a job, because in 1986, I began to show symptoms of a disease called Fibromyalgia this disease is attacking my muscles, tendons and nerves through out my whole body. I am in pain 24/7, all day and night. We are trying to survive on thirteen hundred and fifty dollars a month. Our house payment is almost one thousand dollars a month. We have been using the funds from our savings account to pay most of the bills, every single month.

The problem we are facing now is our savings are almost depleted and we have no one or no where to turn. I had to cancel my health insurance because the insurance went up to seven hundred dollars a month, and I could not pay this amount. I am taking fifteen different medications at this time, and I have to pay for them, myself. Should I have a flair up of my disease, and my body starts attacking my vital organs, I will not be able to go to any hospital or see a doctor.

How can we survive with this low income and the bills seem to be much larger since 1994. I thought these were supposed to be the golden years. We have worked very hard all our lives, and saved as much money as we could,We lived a very simple life, no new cars and expensive jewelry or fancy dinners.I never bought name brand anything. we also invested in two IRA'S that are almost worthless today.We own a 1994 van that needs so many repairs. Our daughter has paid for many of the larger repairs. She can no longer help us, because she has a family of her own, and I think she has done enough. I need a kind hearted person that can help me.I am trying to get a grant from the government to start a real estate business up.

I have been on the computer for months searching for the grant. So far the only thing I have found out, is people are making money selling this information that leads no were. MY brother is a real estate agent, and he is willing to help me find homes that are in poor condition and the price is right. I need capitol to start my business. I need a God send and very soon. Please contact me through my email Address.

Thank you for your time. Every statement I have made is the truth. I can prove to you my story is true. I am looking for a hand up and, not a hand out. Once I sell my first home, I have restored. I will pay bank the money and thank you for Your generosity. I live in the Los Angeles area in the USA. Thank you

There is a contest going on between Ashton Kutcher and CNN in regards to who can be the first to have a 1,000,000 followers on Twitter. This contest is not so much about Ashton Kutcher as it is about the individual having as much power and influence as the mainstream media has.

The Twitter Follower Results as of 12:08 AM EST - April 16, 2009

AK. - 931,944
CNN - 958,338

What the results of this contest signifies is that it is now possible for one person to have as much influence in the world as mainstream media has had for years.. To view AK's video, click on this link: . The content of the video is very good. 4 min.

What's more significant about this contest is that followers of individuals like Ashton Kutcher, follow people like him out of choice as opposed to turning the TV on and having the mainstream media's point of view crammed down our throats.

I am an ex-Hippie from the 60's... and we used to say, "power to the people."

De-Stress Quickly with Baby Lullabyes

As the father of five and grandfather of fourteen, my children and grandchildren, by observation, have always been my spiritual teachers. I remembered the soothing quality lullabies always had on me when I played them for my children. A couple of weeks ago, I was stressed out more than I like to me so I downloaded 50 lullabies. As I started listening to them everything about me (mind,body and soul) start calming down. My mind was flooded with warm memories of my own childhood plus the warm memories of playing lullabies for my children and grandchildren. This method of de-stressing myself is certainly cheaper than a doctor's visit and a lot safer than taking pill or prescription meds. Try it, it might work as well for you too.

The funniest lullaby my kids loved and the one I love too is: 'The Old Lady Who Swallowed The Fly." God only know why little children love this one, my grandchildren love it too, because if you listen to the lyrics, they make no sense and could scare you half to death: Here are the lyrics.

The Old Lady Who Swallowed the Fly - Lyrics

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I dunno why she swallowed that fly,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird;
How absurd, to swallow a bird!
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll die

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat.
Imagine that, she swallowed a cat.
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog.
What a hog! To swallow a dog!
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat...
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a goat.
Just opened her throat and swallowed a goat!
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog ...
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat.
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow.
I don't know how she swallowed a cow!
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat...
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog...
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat...
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse -
She's dead, of course.
