The Best Of...
Just for grins and giggles, I looked up the views on my posts the other day. I've been meaning to do one of my "recaps", catching new readers up on the subjects I've tackled and the resources I've created, but this time I've decided to do something a little different. This time, I'm going to share "The Best of Sacred Cyber-Space"; the top ten most read posts, starting with number ten:
Staying In One Place Too Long ~~ This is the first guest post here at SacredCyberSpace.com. I had several people interested in guest posting and one of my most loyal readers, Lynn Ross,was the first one to follow through. Like many of my readers, I keep meaning to guest post on other blogs, but I'm just too caught up in my own web site right now. Like myself, many of the others who were interested are very intently focused on other things. If you're interested, let me know.
Lynn has written a great article about how new, exciting philosophies soon become a part of who we are, leading to the constant building of our "inner cathedral". Thanks, Lynn!
9. An Interview With Cynthia Sue Larson ~~ Seeing this post is reminding me that I was going to do all sorts of interviews this year, but that is not the path the Universe had in store for me. I'm hoping 2013 is the year I move forward with my plans to do a series of interviews with people who have turned their passions into their living.
I was a little "star struck" and overwhelmed when Cynthia agreed to do an interview with me. A successful Spiritual Life Coach and author, she teaches about Reality Shifts and how they can be used to change the trajectory of your life. Shifts can be used to manifest dreams and completely alter your current place in life. Check out this great interview or give it another read.
8. A Little Something From Me To You ~~ Last year I was dabbling with sharing my photography with my readers in a way that would lift them up both online and in their personal spaces, at work and home. Simply go to this page, right click on the image you like and save it to your hard drive. Feel free to print it out, save it as your computer's background, or share on Facebook.
I have always loved this quote by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. It succinctly sums up why I do what I do; teach others how to take responsibility for their own personal energy. This is done by taking responsibility for your life. I have learned to do this on my own with the guidance of some awesome teachers. Now it's my turn to help others.
7. Take Charge Of Your Stress ~~ Speaking of sharing my photography, I took the idea of a Soul Lift and multiplied it by 1000 when my first eBook finally came to be. Learning to be in charge of the stress in your life, and not the other way around, is a huge game changer. Being in charge of your stress helps you to better focus on your dreams and goals. It helps to turn you into an observer of the intensities of life, keeping you from being too physically and emotionally engaged. All of this leads to your being available for opportunities and experiences, you wouldn't have been able to see while engaged in life's daily stresses.
Map Your Time ~~ Discovering Julie Morgenstern was a personal game changer. I was enamored with her organizational philosophies and channeled this into a five year span of time where I was a personal assistant, executive assistant and office manager. Somewhere in this period of time, she also turned the concept of Time Management on its ear.
You were not meant to lose your dreams in the currents of this unpredictable life. How you choose to spend each moment can be linked back to a higher personal value you hold; the foundation of who you are. Suddenly your time becomes your own. Even working a not so great job can be connected back to the higher value of family, therefore, putting your time back in your hands.
Visualize ~~ This post is from a series I did the beginning of 2012, Manifesting Intention. This is the series where I feel like I finally found my blogging rhythm. I also feel like this is where my true purpose, what I can REALLY bring to the table, started to unfold.
This post is all about visualizing your dreams, goals and desires. I discuss making Vision Boards and how they help manifest your intentions.
4. Karmic Willow Creations, Interview And Giveaway ~~ Last year, I really wanted to share one of my biggest supporters and friends with as many people as I could. I decided to try my hand at a giveaway to get the word out and I also worked a little interview into the mix. Karmic Willow is a gifted, healing artist. Her paintings are so soothing to the spirit. Speaking from experience, I can also share that her incenses and goats milk soap are just as soothing and healing as her art.
3. Wayne Dyer's Hat ~~ While looking through my stats one day, I noticed that Google searches kept pulling up my blog when people would search for Wayne Dyer's Hat. I thought this was hysterical. I knew that he had worn a hat in his last PBS special and I found it very amusing that their were people out there curious enough about it to do a Google search.
After about two weeks of these search engine key words popping up, I finally decided to give people something to read about Dyer's new hat. Not surprising, it has turned into the third most popular post.
2. Summer Solstice ~~ I had originally planned to do an informative post on both solstices and equinoxes. I ran out of steam and changed direction before I could get to all four, but this is the first one I did. In the summer of 2011 I was still writing like I did over at HubPages.com and hadn't found my real voice yet. Still, this is a nice little informative post that has apparently helped out many people as it is the second runner up for "most read" blog posts.
1. What's This About Wayne Dyer? ~~ And now for the number one most read post here on Sacred Cyber-Space. I wrote this in the summer of 2011. A reader had commented that she had lost respect for Dr. Dyer, because she had read that he had plagiarized part of his new book. I was stunned and disappointed. Then, after thinking about it for a day or two, I wasn't satisfied. I wanted to know the whole story and I shared it with my readers. The post took over a life of its own in the comments section, where we all tried to figure out if, how and why this could have happened.
