The book, "Go to ELF - Connecting With The Eternal Life Force" has ended distribution of its second printing in paper back form - but is still available on Kindle for $7.99 and on Amazon as a used (some new) book. There are also some new copies left which I will be offering on this page as prizes from time to time. "Go to ELF!" has enjoyed many comments, lots of accolades, and has been a significant factor in several physical healings, a number of emotional healings, and at least one reconciled marriage ELF Wisdom will not end with the book, but will continue on this site well into the future. The ELF in YoursELF is also speaking to you at all times and is a fine personal source of inspiration, information, guidance and support.

Oh my - this is the time of year when people start confusing me with that little ELF on the Shelf. He is a childhood toy, conceived by someone who thought tattling on little children was a good idea to keep them off the naughty list. Actually, there is a better way, in fact several, to do that but that's not my message. I do know about everything you do, every minute of every day from childhood on - and - I do send you messages through your own feelings to let you know when your choices are not in line with the true desires of your heart - but I never call you naughty or try to force one behavior over another. You came here to have experiences so every experience counts, and you also came here to planet earth to have fun.
A reader shares about how she received UNEXPECTED INCOME and it is inspiring.
Diane Marie wrote: "All things happen for a reason. I ordered my glasses about 1 1/2 weeks ago. Today received a call telling me that my order was deleted from their system accidentally and I needed to come in again. While I was there, I found a frame I liked better than the one I picked out the last time and then got I a credit for $35 off my eye exam because they didn't offer me the AARP discount the first time. How does it get better than that? Well, I found my Sketchers GoWalk shoes on sale and was able to use a $30 Cash Bonus Credit so I was able to get them for about half of what I had been pricing them for! All in all a great day. As The Elf would say - "expect unexpected income"!
GRATITUDE: It would be difficult for me to think of anything more important to tell you than to tell you how powerful your expressions of Gratitude are. Not only because they make it clear to me exactly what pleases you, but because they clarify for you the very things that make you happy. And you did come to planet earth intending to be happy.
You place great store on the research done by the learned Dr.s who share the planet with you at this time and they certainly back me ...up on this subject. Psychologists studying the effects of gratitude on the power of the body to heal were astonished.
A study done by Robert Emmons of the University of California and Michael McCullough of the University of Miami in 2003 – funded by the John Templeton Foundation reported that: “In an experimental comparison, those who kept gratitude journals on a weekly basis reported fewer physical symptoms, felt better about their lives as a whole, and were more optimistic about the upcoming week compared to those who recorded hassles or neutral life events.”
In a report on the effects of gratefulness in the workplace, researchers found that a grateful attitude may be reliably connected to positive changes in an individual's cardiovascular and immune system functioning. In one recent study based on anger management, individuals who focused on being grateful (rather than mentally attempting to control their anger) were found to positively impact a variety of important physiological functions such as improved heart, pulse, and respiration rates.
Regular practices of gratitude will increase your prosperity, improve your health, harmonize your relationships and deepen your Spirituality and that alone is worth the time and effort it takes for you to be grateful for your abundant blessings. Agreed? - The ELF
ELF NOTES: 'Has he totally lost his mind?" I hear you say that a lot when someone's bizarre behavior puzzles you - and the answer is, believe it or not, 'yes" - except for the "totally" part. Your human mind has some limitations - some boundaries - and it can get so confused within those boundaries that it loses its ability to reason, at least temporarily. When that happens, your human behavior is apt to get a bit strange. But the good news is - ultimately you are intimately connected to Divine Mind which is always steady, sure, sensible, kind, intelligent, joyful and a whole bunch of adjectives that are only used in Eternity. So - relax - no one can lose his or her mind forever. Infinite hope abounds. " - The ELF
ELF NOTES: "I find myself fascinated by the ads on your televisions for new cars that have automatic braking systems. They stop the car before you run into something or someone and that can only be a good thing. Do you know you have an internal braking system that will also keep you out of trouble if you're awake enough to recognize it? It's ME! I will always send you a signal to stop in time - a really bad feeling that clearly means STOP - CAUTION NEEDED HERE. All you have to do is learn to pay attention to that feeling and act accordingly" - THE ELF

"What is compassion? I don't understand it." And I answered "I know you don't - but neither do a lot of other people even though it is one of the most powerful positive energies on earth". A simple exercise will awaken your inner compassion - just think of someone, anyone, who even though you wish you didn't, you really dislike. Really, really dislike. Got it? Now think of one really good thing about that person. It may take a while, but something will come up for you and when it does, you will begin to feel a touch of compassion. No one person is all bad - the seed of goodness lies in everyone. If you can even glimpse it, you've begun your journey toward compassion. The ELF - www.gotoelf.com

"Guilt, blame and shame are human emotions that are a complete waste of time and energy. Here in Spirit, we deal with only one kind of energy and that is good energy. Anything else is simply the absence (or the suppression) of good energy. You named these energies when you began to focus on your past, instead of living in the present moment - your perfect now. Your past is no longer real - whatever negative experiences you had are long gone - and all the people who were p...art of those experiences are entirely different beings. In fact, if the event you are mentally holding onto from your past happened more than 10 years ago - every single part of all the parties involved has been replaced with new parts. The cure for guilt, blame and shame is a change of mindset. A new plan to enjoy life as it occurs - in fact is occurring - and never again in focus on past events." The ELF - www.gotoelf.com
"Parents and children would have a nicer combined experience here on earth if they believed these words of wisdom from your Prophet Kahlil Gibran. All of Creation belongs to the Creator. Human beings take on the role of caregiver for children and animals and properties and all sorts of other things while they are here and often, the concept of "ownership" overtakes them as the duties become more demanding. In truth, everything and everyone on the planet has a finite life span and while it may rest in your purview for a while, it is never yours to keep. Everything and everyone belongs only to God. Truthfully, couldn't you enjoy everything and everyone more if you were awake to the fact that your time with them is a privilege rather than a right? Think about it -because it's true." - The ELF www.gotoelf.com
"I can feel the distress in you when you respond negatively to something you see or hear that displeases you, especially as you subject yourself to television news. And when there is a "good news" story, I can feel you respond to that too. In fact the physical, mental and emotional shifts you go through in one half hour experience watching television is pretty interesting. Life doesn't have to feel so much like a roller coaster, I promise you, if you will consciously watch those same programs with me instead of without me. I will let you feel - instantly - what is not good for you to hold in mind and help you to "pivot" your thoughts away from that particular story and onto something that makes you happier. I promise you - together we'll have more fun watching the news than you ever thought possible." THE ELF - www.gotoelf.com
"Outer appearances need never stem your inner desire to grow and expand in all sorts of interesting directions.. Just like the snow in this field, which will soon melt away in the warm sun (you can see it already beginning to subside) failed to keep these determined blooms from facing the light of day, the outer conditions of your life will not keep you from achieving the desires of your heart if you hear me as I direct your way. Be still and listen and I will keep you away from the things that are really dangerous while you push through those that only appear that way. I am you and you are me, ever and always and we are intimately connected to all of the power of the Universe. It is so. - THE ELF - www.gotoelf.com
"Those souls that have challenged you the most in your human life experience have also been your greatest teachers. They laid bare for you what needed to be changed in you, as well as what kind of people you have chosen to be a part of your life experience ever since. Have you considered thanking them for making such an effort to enlighten you so that your life could only get better? If you can't (or won't) thank them personally, then at least thank them in Spirit. Send a message from your Inner Being to theirs expressing your gratitude to them for allowing you to become the better person you have become because of them. You won't regret making that effort - I promise. - THE ELF www.gotoelf.com
