Lessons in Manifesting, Intentions and Law Attraction

positive thinking conceptAre you tired of living in a state of lack and want? Do you think you know about the Law of Attraction and yet, you just can’t make the shift in your life? Are you unable to manifest what you need in life: Love? Money? Peace? Security? Consistently? Has “This Economy” left you with some serious opportunities for growth?

Are you ready to receive?

Or have you found that no matter what you do you just can’t seem to make things happen for you? I have to tell you I was at this place in my own way many years ago. It was these very tools that I want to share with you. If you can begin to use them in your own home with your own family, you’ll find that so much will change for you.

Are you ready to change?

Well here’s your opportunity. Email customerservice@kimberlyrinaldi.com with “Intentions” in the subject line and I’ll happily send you a copy of the intentions practice I use weekly. Whether looking at law of attraction, universal laws or creative consciousness there are some basic tools to put in place – and I’ll provide you with them to kick start your manifesting abilities.

Ghost Hunting 101

1421266_10202141173268566_1993157473_oAfter my first paranormal investigating experience, I came to realize the most important tool we can utilize is our own instinct and intellect.  With all of the expensive equipment out there available, I want to recommend simply three things.

First you need a flashlight. This may sound obvious but I cannot stress enough how important safety is when investigating. Whether you’re out at night or mid-day in dimly lit areas, a small flashlight is imperative.

Second, an audio recorder or digital camera or simply a smart phone which does both. You’re going to want to capture your experiences – evidence, if you will. You’re going to want to share with people. You’re going to want to remember this. My first experience I had an old digital recorder that I use for recording classes and my iPhone for the camera. I caught evidence on both.

Third and most important is you. Pay close attention to all five of your physical senses. What do you see, hear, smell, feel, and taste? Take note of any changes. See if others in the group validate what you’re experiencing. Whether they do or they don’t, don’t discount your experience. Check in on those sixth sense feelings, whether it’s instinct, gut, intuition or whatever you want to call it. Be aware of it. Acknowledge it.

Pulling these three tools together, you can begin your investigative process. If you find you want to make the investment and purchase additional tools, then go for it. But don’t forget to start off with the basics.

If you’re interested in joining us on an investigation sometime soon, join us at Into the Light Paranormal on our next adventure.

Lessons in Leisure: California’s Central Coast Nibbles, Noshes and Noms

DSC01516I spent a week last year in Morro Bay, Cambria and San Luis Obispo on California’s Central Coast. It was a great getaway and I really enjoyed some downtime.

One of the things I enjoy doing while traveling is finding great new places to eat. With all the walking we do (9 miles and 23 flights of stairs in one day at Hearst Castle!) I want good food. And I’m not looking for chain restaurants when we travel.

Here are a few of great little places that we found during that week.

Giovanni’s Fish Market & Galley

Embarcadero, 1001 Front St, Morro Bay, CA 93442

They serve the best clam chowder I can ever recall having. My husband and I split this with some garlic cheese bread and a couple of beers for lunch one afternoon. I’d be tempted to drive all the way up there just for this.

Dorn’s Original Breakers Cafe

801 Market Ave, Morro Bay, CA 93442

I had the dinner special one night – Seared Ahi Spinach Salad. It was pretty damn good and they shared the recipe with me. Kind of.

  • Spinach
  • Sesame crusted Ahi seared rare
  • Crumbled bacon
  • Avocado
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Feta cheese
  • Garlic vinaigrette

Linn’s Fruit Bin Restaurant

277 Main St, Cambria, CA 93428

Remember the 9 miles and 23 flights of stairs at Hearst Castle? We skipped lunch and left there hungry, ending up at Linn’s. Again, I’m one for taking the waitstaff’s suggestions and went with the dinner special: brined bone-in thick cut grilled pork chop with an olallieberry relish. I don’t even remember what else came with it and frankly I don’t care. This and a glass of chilled white wine – after a long hot day spent walking and climbing – made me happy.

Las Cambritas

2336 Main St, Cambria, CA 93428-3404

While I don’t recall what I had, I had a bite of Mr. Rinaldi’s chicken tostadas. I spent the rest of the meal trying to get him to switch with me. Yes, they were that good.

Rick and I often comment about the fact that with all of our traveling – and eating – we’ve never had a bad meal. A lot of that comes from talking to the locals and asking questions. So the next time you’re out in a new area, check out a local restaurant, support a small business and ask your waitstaff what they recommend. You might find a place worth driving six hours to for a cup of soup.

Are You Ready to Quit Smoking?

Woman Breaking CigaretteMy name is Kimberly and I was once a two-pack-a-day smoker.

That is actually how I came to hypnotherapy over 20 years ago.

I was a two-pack-a-day smoker and had no conscious desire to quit. My parents were going to see a hypnotherapist for smoking cessation as my father had serious health issues and needed to quit his habit immediately. I went for two reasons: first, they asked for my support, and second, they were paying for it. I went into the sessions thinking I would go along for the ride and just smoke when I wasn’t with them.

Well, the short story is this: I left there and carried a pack of cigarettes for a year along with the thought, “I know I’m going to want one of these soon.”  After one year I tossed that last pack of unopened cigarettes and finally admitted I was a non-smoker.  Mom and Dad quit just as easily.

I could rehash the health-related reasons to quit, but you already know them. From the changes in your ability to taste and smell food to more serious issues of heart or lung disease, even cancer, you have heard them all. You have probably been asked by loved ones to consider them in your decision as well.

You always have choices. You chose to start smoking. Up till now you have chosen to continue smoking. You could choose to keep right on smoking or you could choose to quit. If you choose to quit you could try cold-turkey, nicotine gum, a patch, a pill, or hypnosis. Perhaps you could even choose a combination of these methods. The choice is yours. When you are ready to make a new choice, I can help. I am so confident in how well hypnotherapy works in smoking cessation, I offer a program with a lifetime guarantee.

Why Hypnosis?

Those who quit smoking have a 90.6% success rate using hypnosis. Of 43 consecutive patients undergoing this treatment protocol, 39 reported remaining abstinent at follow-up (6 months to 3 years post treatment). This represents a 90.6% success rate in using hypnosis.

Hypnosis is the most effective tool. Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit, combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times more effective than nicotine replacement and 15 times more effective than trying to quit alone.

So when you’re ready, ask for help. I’ve been there and I know what it takes.

Healthy Greens for Everybody

Fresh green smoothie in the glass“Yes, in fact, I AM the boss of you!”

That is what I wanted to scream the first time I heard Mr. Rinaldi say, “You’re not the boss of me!” But after 21 years of being married and hearing it every time I try to get him to eat vegetables, I’ve given up on fighting and taken to hiding greens in most of his meals in such a way that he is not aware of it.

Hey, if he’s going to act like a 5-year-old then I’m gonna respond like the mother of a 5-year-old.

Frankly I don’t understand his aversion to green things. I love vegetables and greens in particular. One of the easiest ways for me to sneak greens into his diet is to add them to smoothies and juices. It doesn’t have to be a lot; greens are packed with vitamins and phytonutrients, so a little bit goes a long way. I’ve also minced them and added them to sauce for pasta, in soup, minced and mixed into other salad toppings, in fritattas – the way I see it, if it’s chopped small enough it’s too hard to pick out. And since he actually does like spinach, I often sneak two or three other greens into any recipe that calls for spinach.

Here are some of my favorite greens:

  • Kale – Loaded with vitamin C, kale brings a bright note to soups and stews. Use the leaves only and toss the stems, and remember to go light if you’re adding it to juices or smoothies as it can bring up a bitter note.
  • Beet Greens – Potassium and iron rich, these make a great addition to anything that calls for spinach.
  • Swiss Chard – Mild in flavor, you can use the stems in your cooking as well – just make sure to start them before the leaves. This makes a great addition to pasta with broth and a little Parmesan cheese.
  • Turnip Greens – Loaded with calcium and a spicy bite. Try sautéing with bacon and toss with pasta and a bit of Parmesan or grated Romano.
  • Collard Greens – While the obvious is braised with ham hock, I use these for wraps instead of tortillas. Add a slice of avocado, roasted turkey and a raw vegan garlic spread; this makes a great lunch.
  • Bok Choy – A standout favorite for stir frying, bok choy is also great in noodle soups and sliced thin as a slaw.
  • Spinach – This is the one that disguises so many of the others. Spinach is loaded with vitamin C and iron. I like it simply sautéed with garlic and olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice before serving.
