Confidence in the Future – ‘The Hawaiian Way’ – Dean Callaway
Today is the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year (2011). It is ‘Remembrance Day’ in Australia and at 11 am we will be observing one minute’s silence to commemorate those who died in WWI.
Equally as important as not forgetting the past is looking to the future with confidence and anticipating the wonderful things it can bring to us.
Elvis Presley is attributed with the quote: “For Happiness we need Someone to love, something to do and something to look forward to”, and what better day than 11.11.11 to create things in our lives to look forward to. This is a tremendously energizing thing to do.
What are you looking forward to?
I have a few things – Christmas in Darwin with my son, his wife and three gorgeous boys, and in January a visit from another son and his family. This is the ‘someone to love’ part of Elvis’ quote; two amazing things to look forward to – and there is a third.
The Hawaiian Way, and a Hawaiian Tour – A Spiritual Journey
I talked about ‘variety’ in my previous post, and so I have created more variety and something to look forward to for March 2012. I have booked for Dean Callaway’s 10-day ‘Hawaiian Way’ Spiritual Tour to Kona Hawaii. The thought and visualisation of this trip is totally energizing.
Dean is an advocate and teacher of the 7 principles of ‘The Hawaiian Way’ and is conducting sessions each week here on the Gold Coast to lead people through each of these principles. They are IKE – Awareness; KALA – No Limits; MAKIA -Focus; MANAWA – Now is the moment of power; ALOHA – To love is to be happy; MANA- All power comes from within; and PONO – Effectiveness is the measure of truth.
These principles are a powerful way to live life, and Dean is the epitome of how they can be put into action.
I am so excited about going to Hawaii. We will not only be experiencing the many layers of Hawaiian life and spirituality by meeting the elders and having ‘talk story’, taking a trip to the City of Refuge, visiting a volcano and hieroglyph carvings, but also doing things just for fun, like snorkelling, learning to dance the hula, play the ukelele and make a flower lei.
Much of the enjoyment in something like this is the anticipation of the event, and you can bet I will be tapping into this amazing Hawaiian energy in the months leading up to the trip.
But, a word of warning about anticipation and ‘looking forward to’. It is also important not to have fixed ‘expectations’. There is a certain way of anticipating an event, and that is with an open mind – allowing the Universe to provide ‘this, or something better’. But Keeping in mind MANA – ‘all power comes from within’, and this helps us to generate the most amazing outcome.
The 7 Hawaiian Way Principles in Action
Using the 7 principles of The Hawaiian Way around the imagination of this forthcoming trip:
I can be in IKE – be aware that I can choose what I think,
and with KALA – put no limits on what will happen. Limits and limitations are not real.
With MAKIA – ‘energy flows where attention goes’, so I will maintain a positive focus on the Universe providing the best possible outcome for me.
MANAWA – now is the moment of power tells me that I must ensure that what I do today will enable me to clear the way, financially and in other areas, to easily have this holiday.
ALOHA – if I am happy and count my blessings it will contribute to the good energy around the trip.
MANA – gives me confidence that I have the power within me to create the best experience,
and finally PONO tells me to do the greatest good I can now, and this will contribute to my abundance and ability to generate what I need to make this trip the best experience for me.
Dean’s series of 2-hour workshops on The Hawaiian Way are being conducted each Saturday between 3 and 5 pm at Mermaid Waters (Gold Coast, Australia). If you want more information about this, or the tour, email me at email@example.com
