How to Escape Thought Traps

February 24, 2014, 12:00 AM

By: Stine Ocker

 

Have you ever been really sure about something, only to find out you were mistaken? Did you notice how you operated “as if” you were correct? You may have even seen, heard, touched, tasted, or smelled the world in a way to support your stance. And perhaps you felt you had solid logic to support this position.

 

So how did the possibility of an opposite opinion make its way through your logic and basically the reality as you knew it, to get you to change your mind? Did you fight hard to stay where you were? Did you go through so called “denial”? Did you lock in to your position, and build up a wall to prevent entry of any contrary thought?

 

Now the question I have for you is, “Were you keeping them out or were you trapping yourself in?”

 

In sales, a prospect may be dead-set in his view about a particular product or service. Now the sales rep may know that the prospect does not have all the facts yet, so he sets out trying to convey this to the prospect.

 

One of two things can result. One the prospect tightens the grip on his view or two he begins to shift his perception. Now this of course depends on the rapport and sales strategy used by the sales professional to enter into the prospect’s “thought blockade” and free him from that “one” perspective. Listen to the conversations around you, perhaps even the words coming out of your own mouth, are you building your own thought blockade or “thought trap”?

 

If so, how do you get out? Then (If so desired!) how do you get others out?

 

RECOGNIZE THE TRAPS!

 

Let’s start by looking at the traps of the intellectual mind, the one who weaves such wonderful webs of logic that leaves us feeling good while keeping us quite stuck.

 

 

Trap One: Being Right

 

I often tell the couples l work with, “Do you want to be happy or do you want to be right?” Surprisingly, I see quite a lot of incongruent responses. It is like they know they should say “be happy” and (that’s why they do), but in fact, they really want to say “be right”.

 

Now the real interesting thing is that the intellect wants to be right, regardless of you being right or not. Confused? Then let’s make an important distinction. You are not your intellect! You the being (soul) are much, much more! The intellect’s limitations are not your limitations to the degree that you can separate your “self” (soul) from the intellect. Recognizing these traps and how to avoid them will help in that separation process.

 

 

Trap Two: Validation

 

The intellect seeks constant validation. It is constantly saying recognize me, notice me, “Hey! I’m over here!” Whether it is validation from authorities or peers, this need for validation becomes a crucial trap to avoid.

 

Kids learn this early on. A child comes home with their report card in hand and an eager look of anticipation, waiting for those few key words, “Oh honey, you did great!” Yeah! The kids can now feel worthy. Now imagine what happens when this is compounded over a few decades. Pretty soon we are all looking for validation in every direction.

 

 

Trap Three: Sharing

 

I’ve just got to tell you about this one. Oh you won’t believe it. The intellect likes to share things. Through sharing it can feel more validated and of course be right.

 

Ever felt like crap and wanted to let others know that you felt that way? Did you hope they would sympathize with your story and tell you how right you are in feeling this way? Hoping they would validate your stance? If so, then you fell into another trap to feed the intellect while starving your real self.

 

 

Trap Four: Safety

 

As the intellect spins its logic, forming a thought blockade, it is also creating a sense of safety. If it constructs well-thought-out logic that sounds reasonable, it is safe from any challenges. So what happens when a contrary idea comes knocking on the door? The intellect’s internal safety procedure is kicked in. You may have seen the behaviors that go along with such an internal process if you have ever challenged someone’s “sacred cow.”

 

A woman called me up a few weeks back and wanted me to see her son because he was very messy. She asked if I could hypnotize him to always clean up after himself. I told her that it certainly was possible; however I wanted to know a few things first. So I asked her what happens to her when she sees that he hasn’t cleaned up after himself? She replied with great tension in her voice, “Well that just makes my blood boil!” So I asked if it always made her blood boil. She stammered, “Yes!”

 

Then I asked her what she thought about her response she had to his messiness. I asked her what kinds of effects she thinks this may be having on her own body, her health. I continued by saying, what if she could see a messy room and her blood not boil. Talk about running full force right into a sacred cow. (Moooove!)

 

Her intellect’s safety alerts kicked in immediately. She got very defensive and went on tirade about how she was right, and no one could see all that she went through day in and day out, raising three kids while working, and if her blood didn’t boil she would become just as lazy as her son, and the whole house would be a wreck. Then she ended the call by saying that she was perfectly fine, and it was her son who had the problem.

 

Now how many of you identified with her story, sympathized with her stance? Did you get sucked into the trap? Did you let her logical retort validate your own stance? Go back and read it again. What did she do? How did she trap herself? Her intellect screamed bloody murder the moment we came up on her sacred cow of cleanliness. It started by building a logical argument around why she was right and he (or me, for challenging her) was in the wrong. She used that along with the lack of validation and recognition from everyone else to validate her logic. And finally, she felt compelled to share it with me to externalize the trap and manifest it into reality. By sharing, the logic is not just a construct in her mind anymore. Adding voice and breath to it begins to give it a life of its own. This is where the pointing begins. And remember whenever there is one finger pointing outwards, there are three fingers pointing back to the person doing the pointing.

 

 

Getting Out of the Trap

 

Now that you know what to look out for, you can begin using the tools below to stay out as well as help others to stay out of those thought traps. Remember this takes practice. The hardest step is to recognize it. The moment you do recognize it you are in a sense already on your way out. But then it is about freeing yourself from the logic that the intellect has spun around the trap.

 

Even then you may find it is easier to spot other people’s traps quicker than your own. And the reason for that is because your own logic is most seductive to you not to others. So while they may be seduced by their logic, you can clearly see through it. And it certainly works the other way around as well. So go slowly with this at first. You don’t want to find yourself at the end of the week with no friends because you challenged all their sacred cows without maintaining rapport.

 

Now the simplest way is to first recognize the trap and then begin questioning it.

 

Who, What, Where, When, and How. Avoid “Why” because you will only get justifications, which only help build the thought blockade stronger.

 

For example, when working on your own thought trap, you may want to begin like this:

 

Who says you’re right? How do you know? According to what criteria? When am I wrong? When was the last time? Where was it? What was going on then? Who was I wanting validation from then? How did I get it then? What did I do as a result of it? What other choices did I have available to me then? What about now? How would things be different if I responded differently?

 

If you are familiar with the meta-model, you can use it to guide you to different ways of looking at the trap? And as you start finding the edges, the boundaries of the confine, you can find the doorway out of the trap.

 

Another tool is to use your vertical and lateral thinking strategies to leap you or others out of the trap. In some cases, these strategies will not get you totally out of the trap, but it will begin expand the boundaries, giving you an opportunity to find your way out. Let’s use the lady who called me as an example.

 

(Staying vertical to her position) I could have said to her, “Well, if you can’t keep a house a clean without your blood boiling, then perhaps you should hire a 24-hour maid.” Vertical thinking leads you up and down the same line of thinking, regardless of whether you are speaking at levels of abstraction or levels of specificity; the topic doesn’t change.

 

(Going lateral to her position) Or I could have said, “A friend of mine had a problem with a wrecked house, so she went out and got herself an apartment-No more wrecked homes.” Lateral thinking begins one place and ends up at an entirely different place. A conversation may begin at A and end up at D, with transitions B and C explicitly stated or just processed internally by one or both parties.

 

As you begin discovering your own traps, whether they appear as beliefs, values, or ideals, and regardless of how many layers of logic that are piled on top, you now know how to dig your way out. The more you do this, the more flexibility you will create within your own system. You will find that you don’t fall into your own thought traps or anyone elses.

 

Remember to go easy on yourself and to enjoy the process!

Schedule For Success

February 19, 2014, 7:00 AM

By: Lenora K Chalkwater

 

 

Would you describe yourself as extremely busy? Do you often feel tired and stressed out? Sometimes our ambition is our worst enemy. Many of us with big goals try to do way too much. We spread ourselves a mile wide and an inch deep. We are involved in many different things, but aren’t excelling at any one thing. Beware of mediocrity. Most of us want greatness. If that describes you, then you must prioritize your endeavors and adjust your schedule accordingly. Assess your current schedule. Make a list of everything in your life that takes time. This includes school, work, extracurricular activities, sleeping, eating, studying, exercising, talking on the phone, hanging out with friends, chores, bathing, etc. List EVERYTHING.

 

Then note how many hours per week you need for each item to do it well. Add up the hours. While there are only 168 hours in a week, many of us need two or three times that to accommodate our schedule. This is where stress and mediocrity come from. Make your list again, but this time, find a way to limit yourself to 168 hours. There are only two ways to do this: reduce the number of weekly hours per item, or reduce the number of items. I recommend the latter. Cutting activities you enjoy out of your life can be painful, but it’s necessary.

 

Then, to work more efficiently, try some of the following tips:

 

1. Make a daily to-do list. This will help you organize your day and prevent you from forgetting important tasks.

 

2. Prioritize your to-do items. Some tasks are not as critical as others. Assign each task an A, B or C rating. A items are important tasks that must get done right away. B items are important, but not as important as A items. C items are things that need to get done at some point, but there’s no rush. Once you’ve assigned a rating to each task, re-write your to-do list with all the A items on top (in order of importance), then the B and C items. Complete the A items first. This may seem obvious, but think about how many times you’ve put off an important (sometimes unpleasant) task so you could call a friend, clean your room or do something else that really didn’t need to happen at that time. Stick to what’s important.

 

3. Group similar activities together. Make all your phone calls at once. Run all your errands at once. Transitioning from one type of activity to another takes time, so group like to-do items together and complete them at the same time.

 

4. Overlap. Sometimes you can do two things at once. For example, you can read while you do the laundry. You can write a letter while you’re on the bus. Be careful about doing multiple tasks if one of them requires your focus.

 

5. Identify and avoid time wasters. We all have them. I like to check my email. Some people like to take unnecessary naps. Some people look for things to clean and organize as an excuse not to work. See what you do that wastes your time and stop doing it.

 

6. Identify and avoid distractions. My cat likes to jump onto my lap when I work. Some people work with music on, but then start singing. Maybe your phone rings a lot and you always answer. Eliminate these distractions when you need to get stuff done.

 

7. Find a good place to work. See where you’re most productive and focused.

 

8. Organize your workspace.

 

9. Keep flat surfaces clean.

 

10. Use an effective filing system. Make sure you know where everything is.

 

11. Take pit stops. Sometimes taking a 5 minute snack break or a 60-second breathing break can re-energize you and improve your efficiency.

 

12. Do more during your most productive hours. Some of us are morning people while others are night owls. Work during your best time. Many people think they must work harder to be successful. In most cases, they just need to work smarter. Take time to manage time. Otherwise, it will manage you.

Pisces Style

February 18, 2014, 2:00 PM

By: Erin

 

As we come to the last sign of the zodiac chart, we round out our installment of styles of the zodiac with Pisces. Being born under the sign of the fish and ruled by water, your closet is usually filled with many shades of greens and blues.

 

Like the ocean you are not afraid to add bright colors like coral hues or pastels to your outfits. You believe in trying out new patterns and styles because your closet and jewelry box should be as versatile as the waves.  Pisces are great at keeping the balance between sexy, cute, fun, and sophisticated – which is a tough job but you are able to pull it off without missing a beat.

 

 

 

Everyday Fashion for Pisces Woman:

 

Free flowing and colorful is what Pisces women are all about when it comes to daily outings. You are going to see lots of pastel colors in blues, greens, yellows, corals primarily. Like I previously mentioned, Pisces women are pretty versatile in their fashion so the everyday outfit can range anywhere from a flirty free flowing tunic and pair of for fitting pants to a colorful dress or pant suit. One thing is a definite though, Pisces women love open-toed heels! They believe the open-toe heel completes any outfit.

 

 

The ever so sassy and stylish Niecy Nash is the picture perfect celebrity Pisces in her pastel yellow pant suit. Pictured here on the red carpet wearing a light, low cut shirt tied at her waist line (which is a big thing with Pisces) Niecy is glowing with this beautiful pastel hue. She of course completes her look with a pair of open-toed heels and a matching clutch.

 

 

 

Fashion For a Pisces Woman’s Night Out on The Town:

 

When a Pisces woman hits the town you can be certain all eyes will be on her. They exude romance and charm. You can be sure she will be dazzling on the dance floor in a fun, colorful dress. Although most times their dress will be colorful and have some sort of floral pattern, Pisces women also really enjoy the color beige and will step out in a skin tight beige dress with teal or pink open-toed heel and matching handbag for a burst of color. What it comes down to is they love that sassy-classy look.

 

 

The beautiful starlet Rashida Jones definitely turns heads wherever she goes. In this photo she is making waves as a fellow Pisces on the purple carpet. Her trim wasted, knee-length dress is perfect for whatever the night may bring. It has a very fun and unique pattern with beautiful colors of blues and greens (perfect for a Pisces female) and it is stylish while still looking comfortable. She shows just enough leg and adds a bit of extra flair to her look by wearing dark blue strappy, open-toed pumps with a bit of shine.

 

 

 

Accessories:

 

Pisces women love accessories because there are no limits and there’s endless possibilities. Pisces are known to be very creative and imaginative people so they can take a cool, colorful scarf and make it into a fashionable belt or hairpiece. For the day-to-day they usually will wear a pair of dangling earrings with a pop of color. They love bangles and cuff bracelets and unique rings with large, unique and colorful stones or designs. Basically what it comes down to is that if they see something that has bright colors in it they will rock it!

 

 

Quirky cutie Ellen Page shows us she knows how to accessorize like a true Pisces by wearing a super cool black and silver braided chain necklace with a large colorful pendant. I know this picture is from 2009 but I chose it for a 2 reasons; Ellen is the ultimate Pisces female (she’s ambitious, compassionate, stands up for things she cares about, creative…), when doing my research and finding out she was a Pisces I got really excited because I remembered her having a really cool necklace one time (this one) that I was obsessed with and got really excited to feature it (and her) in one of our style blogs. The colors in the pendant are beautiful, I will put a close up below, but it really just sums up a Pisces females jewelry selection in one single piece.

 

 

Here is a close up of Ellen’s pendant.

So it’s that time of year again where there seems to be an abundance of chocolate, flowers, and the hope of blossoming love is abundant. So with this in mind I turn to the Lovers card in my deck. The most interesting thing about this card is not the meaning behind it so much but where it is placed in the reading. Also weather or not the card is in reverse or in the regular position.

 

The A.E Waite definition of this card talks about the meaning behind the many visual aspects of the card. How in a relationship everything starts off pure and good but then falters when ‘honeymoon’ stage starts to wear off. This card lets you know that in you as the person who pulls this card must make the best of what comes within your relationship. This card represents relationships and the choices within those relationships. Where it is in the reading itself give some indication of either an existing relationship or a coming or a relationship. It can also mean the temptation of the heart and some choices of potential partners. Often times there’s a type of sacrifice that needs to happen by making a choice of a relationship. This card indicates to not take that decision lightly. Some major key words for this card are love relationships, romance, unions, passion and pleasure.

 

When you see the lovers card in reverse this can indicate some troubles relating to someone else within a relationship or in making a decision about your relationship. It could also indicate that you’re looking for love and just simply not finding it. You might have an ideal lover in mind and you pressure those around you to fulfill your ideal. But they will not be able to fulfill it. There could be a period of lack of chemistry or indicate a sexual relationship like a friends with benefits arrangement. This card in reverse could also indicate a relationship where you have feelings but the other person may not share those intense feelings back. Communications with others could be affected and attempts to connect may be leading towards misunderstandings and disagreements. When this card is in reverse all the positive aspects of this card seems to go the other way. It can also mean poor decisions or having indecisive tendencies in love and can be the feeling of regret or guilt that brings this card forward in reverse in a reading.

 

A lot of times when you see this card in a reading it would be a good idea to find out where it is in the spread and what issues are you asking about. Are you already in a relationship? Or just simply looking to find out when a relationship will happen. Should you find this card in a past position, this could indicate the foundation of the current situation within your relationship. It could also indicate past love or represent your parents (if you are young). If you find this card in a present position within the reading usually indicates a potential relationship coming and coming fast. You might already know who this person is or it’s on the verge of coming. Either way this card in the present position usually indicates that the relationship coming will be one of potential transformation in all aspects of your life – positive or negative. Should you find this card in a future position and you are single it means that it’s a time to go out into the world and start dating. Always make sure you have a clear mind of what it is you want before trying to find a bonding with another.

 

Even though this card indicates a relationship is coming it also tells you to be clear about what it is you want and make sure you send out the energy you wish to get back. If you are not single this could mean you’re having issues within your current relationship and another person may come in giving you the ‘it’s always greener on the other side’ type of syndrome. Here is where more of those love choices comes into play and it will be up to you as to the decisions you decide to undertake. There will be some choices to make about a relationship and you need to find the focus in order to make a clear choice. Love has a tendency of blurring the lines and this card tells you love is coming and you need to make sure you have a clear idea of what it is you want. And as always be careful of what you wish for.

Happy GALentines Day

February 13, 2014, 8:00 AM

By: Erin

 

 

That’s right, GALentines Day. I’m a big fan of the show Parks and Rec. with Amy Poehler and her character Leslie is big on celebrating Galentines Day the day before Valentines Day. What is it? Basically you round up your gal pals, leave your boyfriends, husbands, whatever at home and spend Valentines Eve with your ladies. No boys allowed.

 

Grab your girls and plan a night of fun things to do together. You can chose to do a girls night out or a girls night in the important thing is that you are all together and having fun and catching up without the boys around. It’s like turning back time to when we were younger and had sleepovers and stayed up all night talking and playing games.

 

 

For A Gals Night In:


 

If you are going to do a girls night in make it super special and go all out! Go to the dollar store and get some Valentines Day themed sparkly confetti and a pink table cloth to decorate the dinner table. Get some fancy looking drink stirrers and anything glittery you can’t go wrong. Decorate the table and put cupcakes or a cake as the centerpiece with a sign saying “Happy Galentines Day” for you and your friends to enjoy.

 

 

Also, plan some fun things to do for the night after dinner is over like watch your favorite “girl power” movies, play some games, make some drinks, set up a makeshift photo-booth and take funny pictures to capture the events of the night. I made a list of me and my friends favorite movies for girls nights and games we break out when we feel like taking it back to our teen years and got some suggestions for drink ideas for girls nights that I will list for inspiration for readers. Also, have a dance party! No girls night in or out is complete without a dance party.

 

 

Movies:
Clueless, Mean Girls, Heathers, Bridesmaids, Sex In The City, The Ugly Truth, Pretty In Pink.

 

Games:
Girl Talk, Truth or Dare, Kiss-Marry-YouKnowWhat, Kings Cup.

 

Drinks:
Sparkling Blood Orange Martini: 1.5 ounce blood orange juice, 2 ounce vodka, 1 ounce lime juice, 4 ounce sparkling water, lime wedge for garnish.

 

 

Cupids Cupcake Cocktail: vodka, chocolate sauce, buttermilk, red food coloring, creme de cacao, vanilla, shake in an ice shaker, dip the rim of the glass in creme cheese frosting and enjoy.

 

 

 

For A Gals Night Out:

 

 

If you and the ladies decide to spend your Galentines Day out on the town then again, do it big! Plan a day or afternoon of pampering. Go get mani-pedis and sip champagne and catch up on each others lives and fill every one in on the latest news – whatever, the day is about friends and fun and girl time!

 

After your pampering is through you can go looking for some sales and find some cute outfits to wear out to dinner and drinks. Maybe you wanna hit up a karaoke club. I can tell you from personal experience, you can’t go wrong with going to a karaoke bar. Even when you are not participating, or sober as a bird, just watching others partake is pure enjoyment. Again, make sure the night includes a dance party!

Treats For Your Sweets

February 12, 2014, 8:00 AM

By: Office Staff

 

 

Today we bring you mouth watering treats to whip up for your loved one this Valentines Day. Really, you can do these whenever but we found some Valentines day inspired meals or twists to everyday meals you can bring them to let them know you wanted to go that extra mile and make the day a bit more special for them.

 

 

Breakfast:

 

Option 1: I Love Bacon

 

You’re in the kitchen about to make some eggs, bacon and toast and surprise your partner with breakfast but you are trying to figure out how to make it special and not your everyday eggs and bacon, right? Here’s an idea; take 2 strips of bacon and make them into a heart shape before you put them in the oven. They will hold the shape of the heart as they bake. It will be a cute surprise for when they see it on their breakfast plate.

 

 

Option 2: Red Velvet Pancakes

 

This one takes a bit more time and elbow grease than the eggs and bacon but its equally delicious and might get you more brownie points because you’re putting more time and effort into it. You will need 1 1/2 cup buttermilk, 4 eggs, 4 Tbsp melted butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 Tbsp. red food coloring, 2 Tbsp. Cocoa, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1/3 cup of sugar 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp. of salt. Mix your dry ingredients together and set them aside. Then melt the butter in a separate bowl and add buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and the red food coloring. Pour the dry ingredients in and beat until smooth. The rest you would cook like you would a normal pancake. To make a heart shaped pancake place a heart shaped cookie cutter on the skillet and pour batter into the cookie cutter and remove the cookie cutter before flipping or when they are finished you can cut them into heart shapes.

 

 

Lunch:

 

Option 1: Grilled Mac and Cheese Sandwich

 

My mouth is watering just thinking of this. With mac and cheese you cant really go wrong in my opinion, box or homemade I’m not picky. (Bonus points for homemade with different cheeses though). Anyways, to make this simple and delicious lunch you just cook up your mac and cheese regularly according to the recipe on the box or your own recipe and add bacon if you want added yum, butter your bread normally like you would for making grilled cheese then add your mac and cheese to the bread and top with the other piece of bread. Put it on the skillet and brown it on both sides. You can cut the sandwich into heart shapes if you wish before throwing them on the skillet if you wish or you can serve them with sliced cherry tomatoes cut into little heart shapes as a garnish for the plate.

 

 

Option 2: Pack Their Lunch

 

Valentines Day is falling on a Friday this year and let’s face it, we might not get to spend the whole day and night with our partners. If that’s the case then why not pack you loves lunch for them to take to work? It will be a sweet surprise and you can put little notes in there for what they can expect when they get home (example; champagne, special reservations in a secret location, some other sexy surprise). Get creative. You’re still letting them know that you’re thinking of them while you’re both away from each other for the day and that you took the time to make him something special. Plus, you saved him/her from having another vending machine lunch or from having to take time from their work to go get lunch which could make them have to stay late and run into your date night together. You’re so smart!

 

 

 

Dinner:

 

Do what you want! It’s Valentines Day! You wanna go out? Do it! You wanna order in? Order in!

 

 

 

Dessert:

 

Option 1: Chocolate Mousse & Chocolate Covered Cherries

 

Yum. I’ll tell you what, it will be a sweet, sweet death by chocolate if this is the way to go out. Get 1 small box of instant chocolate Jell-o pudding mix, 2 cups of milk, and 1 cup of cool whip for the mousse. The topping is just 1 cup of the cool whip and 1 container of marshmallow creme. Then the finishing touch are the Maraschino cherries with the stems and a block of melting chocolate. Mix the pudding and milk according to the directions on the box then let it sit in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes. Take it out then fold in the cool whip and keep doing so until it’s completely combined. Pour the mousse mixture into glasses about 2/3 full and put back in the fridge while you prepare your topping. Take your 1 cup of cool whip and marshmallow mixture and beat ingredients until they are smooth. Rinse and drain your cherries and then gently pat them dry. Start melting your chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. You might need to stir it and add additional time to melt if needed. Take a cherry and dip in the melted chocolate and set aside on wax paper until it’s set, repeat this for as many as you are making. Take your mousse out of the fridge and add the marshmallow whipped topping and your cherry.

 

 

Option 2: Strawberry Boquet

 

This one is sweet, beautiful, healthy, and easy as all get out. All you need are a few fresh strawberries, a sharp knife, wooden skewers and a steady hand. Simply take your strawberry and holding it at the thick part where the greens are you want to start making little slivers. You’re going to make about 4 around the thickest part of the strawberry then use your eyes to see how it looks and fan it out accordingly. Keep making slivers in the strawberry up and up and use the tip of the knife to fan out the slivers. then place the strawberries on the skewers and put them in a vase in the kitchen after dinner. Tell your partner that you make them and how you made them and they will get a kick out of it and appreciate the beauty and thought even more!

Sweet DIY Projects For and Your Love

Today we are going to give you some ideas on projects you can do with your partner this Valentines Day. A few of these projects are projects you can start on Valentines Day and add to when the mood strikes. We came up with a few different ideas for you so that you can get an idea and make it your own or use these ones – whatever.

 

DIY, or Do It Yourself projects are great because homemade gifts are super special because you know that someone went that extra mile to really put a lot of thought into the gift and it shows that they know you very well. It’s always special and heartfelt. You really can’t go wrong.

 

 

1. Bucket List.
This is a cute idea because you can make it your own and customize it to your and your partners relationship however you want. You will need a picture of a pale/bucket, computer, printer, picture frame, dry erase marker. Come up with a title for the picture (example: Lisa & Mike’s Bucket List of Love) …write whatever you want on it. It’s yours! Lastly, tying back to our previous blog “Date Night Ideas” you and your partner can spend a romantic night together and about the things you both want to do together, places you want to go, etc. When you have your final list, type out the list over top of the picture of the bucket. Print the picture you both created and put it in a frame, hang it somewhere special and whenever you do something off the list together, mark it off the list with a dry erase marker on the glass of the frame. After you did all of them keep it and start a new one!

 

 

 

2. Customized Picture Frame.
This one is simple and sweet. You can find a plain wooden frame from your local craft store for under $2. Vinyl letters come in sheets of about 100 for $4 and then some paint. Place your vinyl letters with whatever message you want to say on your frame, take your paint and make sure you cover the wood completely. Let it dry all the way. You might need another coat of paint or you can add another color or cool sponge or lay a piece of lace over top and sponge a lighter color over top to give it a sweet lace effect. Again, let it dry completely. When the paint is completely dry, gently peel off your venal letters and you will have your frame with your special message. (If you want the letters to be colored and not wood prime the wood frame with a coat of paint with the color you want the letters to be.)

 

 

3. Date Ideas In A Jar.
This one is cute and a good way to keep the spark alive in your relationship. Get an empty coffee tin or mason jar and some Popsicle sticks and on each stick write an idea for a date night. Once a month, you and your partner pull out a date night stick and get ready for a night out. When you get home you can write the date on the back of the stick and if you have a memory book or a scrapbook you can put it in there as a memory of the night and write about the night out you had together. This is a fun and cute way to make sure you and your partner make time for each other also.

 

 

 

4. Felt Fortune Cookies.
These are super cute and you can make them sweet or sexy. They cost next to nothing to make and take very little time so if you find yourself looking for something to make last minute, these love fortunes would be a good choice. You will need a sheet of red or pink (or both) felt, you can find this at any craft store or even Walmart or Target, a small cup or jar (3.5″ – 4″ in diameter), a hot glue gun, scissors, printer paper, and black marker. Take your cup or jar and use it to trace circles onto the felt with the black marker then cut inside the black line. After you have cut out your circles, fold them in half to form semicircles and apply a dab of glue in the center of the curve between the layers. Put your index fingers inside the fold and bend the semicircle to where your fingers meet and apply another dab of glue at the crease to hold the pinched shape. Now is the time to cut little strips of paper and add your message or fortune on it and slip it inside the “cookie” you can leave a little bit of paper showing out of the felt if you would like for easy access for your partner to pull it out. Some people like to add Hershey kisses into the felt cookies but that’s up to you.

Date Night Ideas.

With Valentines Day coming up on Friday we wanted to feature some special blogs for you all this week with some ideas on how to surprise your mate or love interest. Today we are going to give you some cute ideas for fun date night activities. The best part about most of these ideas is that they wont leave you in debt but they will leave a lasting impression on your loved one.

 

People put a lot of pressure on themselves to make Valentines Day “perfect” but honestly, in today’s world people are so busy and the economy is so terrible that it’s SO NOT NECESSARY! It’s not about spending a lot of money on gifts or making reservations at the fanciest restaurant in town… What it should be about is you and that person.

 

If you’re married and planning a date night with your husband/wife, you should focus on catching up with each other and enjoy some quality time catching up on each others lives- talk about anything but the business of your regular lives, enjoy the time together. If you’re an unmarried couple that has been together for a while, do something new or talk about the future and your hopes and dreams of where you want to go together and things you want to experience together. If it’s a first date- there may feel like there’s pressure but it’s not, you’re confusing it with EXCITEMENT. The possibilities are endless…

 

Let’s dive in!

 

1. Dinner & Movie Night In.
This is pretty self explanatory. Yes, you might want to go out and that’s totally understandable but you can make a night in equally romantic as a night out on the town. You and your partner can start the day by going to the local market and picking out the nights dinner menu essentials together. Later, you both can get flirty in the kitchen while making a delicious dinner together. Many grocery stores have a precooked section if you feel like going that route too. Then, you can hit your local state store and choose a bottle of wine to bring home for the evening – you can find great wine for under $8 (believe me). And you and your love can head home and get to cooking and snuggle up in front of the TV and rent a Romantic movie right to your TV (or grab one at Redbox while you’re out.) With life’s daily hustle and bustle a night like this might be just the ticket.

 

2. My Funny Valentine.
This one is a play on something me and my friends did a while back at a party. We called it “Let’s be ‘That Guy’.” This is really fun for twenty-somethings or just silly people really. It’s played off of the art of photo-bombing, which by now I’m sure everyone has heard of because even celebrities are doing it at award shows like the Oscars and the Golden Globes. Anyways, what you do is you and your date add a bit of fun to whatever you have planned and if you see something “photo-bomb” worthy you jump behind it, kiss and snap a photo. If you see a funny sign or statue you can jump in front. Do this all day and night to document your Valentines Day together then if you wish you can print them out and either put them in a photo album, frame, etc.

 

3. Get Crafty.
Head to the closest arts and crafts store, Target, WalMart, wherever sells scrap-booking materials and just pick up some basics. No need to shell out tons of money. A basic scrap book (even a regular notebook with plain white pages will do), glue stick, colorful pens/markers, and that’s pretty much it. You can get fancy with it if you want and get some stickers or cool scrap-booking paper or embellishments but you can do whatever you want to it- it’s your creation! Spend the evening together looking through photos of your relationship that you want to put in the book and write your favorite memories of that moment or time. Make a page of inside jokes you might have, funny stories, movie ticket/concert tickets you went to together… This is a great thing to do together on such a romantic day because you’re reflecting on your entire relationship and laughing and creating even more memories together.

 

4. Go Exploring.
Wake up early, pack up some food and drinks maybe a blanket, hop in the car, fill up the tank and go. Maybe make each of you can make a playlist of songs for the road of songs that make you think of the other or just think would be fun to dance to in the car and laugh together to. Road trips with someone you love are the best and are therapeutic. If you see a cool place you’ve never been to before and want to explore together pull over and make some new memories. This one also applies if you live in a big city and have never explored some of it’s history or if you are in a long distance relationship and your partner is visiting – explore together.

 

5. Play House.
If you and your partner have been making plans for your future together for a while as in “where do you see us living?” or “what kind of car would we have” and such why not spend the day actually living out those fantasies? When me and my boyfriend didn’t have a penny to our name we still would dream of our future house and car and all of the above so one Saturday we did some research on local open houses and we went and toured some homes that were on the market and pictured ourselves starting a family together in some of the homes and it really made us feel so positive about our future and what we wanted because it reassured us that we were on the same page and that we wanted the same things. You can also go to test drive vehicles at car dealerships and used car lots to get the same feel and it’s a fun way to spend the day together and “play house”. This is especially great for engaged couples who are overwhelmed with wedding planning and need a break for a bit from all the details of wedding planning.

 

 

There’s so many ways to come up with cute, inexpensive and truly meaningful date night/day ideas for all year round. Make sure to bookmark our page if you haven’t already because in honor of Valentines Day our staff will be featuring blogs all throughout the week with great ideas for special things you can do for your sweetheart, friends, kids, and family for Valentines Day.

Life Without Tom

February 5, 2014, 12:00 AM

By: Alex

 

 

Kat, Who is one of Foretell’s psychics, had to have her oldest dog Tom put to sleep recently. Tom’s passing was quite a shock for both of us. I had gotten to know all of her dogs over the last few years. It’s funny how you get used to a dog just always being there.

 

While I had done a lot of work on my own past lives, it was only in the last few years that I realized how often our pets have been with us as well. That’s why when they leave us it has such a devastating effect on us.

 

Kat and I knew Tom in many of our previous lives. Our first encounter with Tom was millions of years ago when he was actually a prehistoric fish. I called him “The Guard Fish” and I wrote a blog on him a while back. I don’t know where I found Tom, but somehow I managed to bring him back to my place. Whenever I came home, Tom would get all excited and thrash around in his pool.

 

One of Tom’s ears flops down. It turns out that back when Tom was a fish, his top fin flopped over to one side in the same way. I think that’s about as literal a karmic reference as you can get. I have found similar attributes in Kat’s dogs that come from previous lives, and each one has an amazing story behind it.

 

In ancient Egypt when I was a pharaoh, Tom was a black stallion. He was one of our favorite horses. We used to race him. I have an image of him rearing up on his hind legs. He was a magnificent horse.

 

Later on, somewhere between the years of BC and AD, Tom was a large, ferocious dog living in the Black Forest with us in Germany. He helped defend the area we lived in. Believe me, you did not want to face this dog in battle. It was like a scene from a science fiction movie.

 

Tom was also one of our dogs when we were settlers in Wyoming in the late 1800′s. I went out hunting in the fall one day and my horse got spooked by a snake. I fell off and was attacked by a bear, which ultimately did me in. Tom tried to protect me but I think it was too late.

 

During World War II, Tom was a guard dog in the German Army. We were at a POW camp in Poland. Whenever I give voice commands to these dogs, they listen to me because I trained them. (But having Tom on a leash was like reeling in a 900 pound tuna.)

 

Tom and I have had a long history together. That’s why I felt that he will always be there and why it’s so hard for me to accept his passing. I’m pretty sure he will come back at some point in the future. I just wonder what kind of dog he will be. But that’s a story left to be written…
