good omen

A hummingbird recently decided to build her nest in a decorative branch located under the Black Iguana's giant palapa roof. Mom, a hummingbird aficionado, says it's a good omen.

inspired action

Be aware of the big difference between inspired action and activity. Activity comes from the brain-mind and is rooted in disbelief and lack of faith - you are taking action to "make" your desire happen. Inspired action is allowing the law to work through you and to move you.

Activity feels hard. Inspired action feels wonderful.

lisa's hammocks

My good friend Lisa suggested putting a hammock station on the "nature deck" next to the Black Iguana. Shaded by the palms and tropical trees that surround it, this balmy, breezy area has great views of Bliss Beach. It's great spot to chill and enjoy nature and, perhaps, a good book.

We LOVE this place! It's absolutely perfect.

july squalls

This time of year, as the Caribbean continues to warm up under the intense summer sun, atmospheric instability results in squalls that pass over the island once or twice a day (and also at night). The squalls only last about thirty minutes and are usually followed by sunshine and blue skies. For some reason these waves of short-lived, mini-storms occur primarily in the month of July. They make for great nap weather and the parched plants love the rainwater they bring!

still working

Each of us is attracting in every moment of our lives. So when you feel that the law isn't working for you because you don't have what you want, realize that the law is responding to you. You are either attracting what you want or you are attracting the absence of what you want.

The law is still working.

new white roofs!

A major maintenance project for this year, we are in the process of adding new roofing to all older buildings at Paya. White was chosen because its reflective nature will help keep the bungalows much cooler, lowering our energy costs and shrinking our carbon footprint.

master of your thoughts and emotions

The fastest way to become the Master of your thoughts and emotions is through challenging situations. If your life is going along fairly smoothly, there are not the same opportunities that enable you to strengthen your power and become the Master of your thoughts and emotions.

You see, even challenges are beautiful opportunities in disguise.

the best day of your life

Another easy way to use the law of attraction for your benefit is this:

Every night before you fall asleep, replay in your mind the good moments of the day, and give heartfelt thanks for each one of them. Think about the next day also, and intend that it is going to be amazing, that it is going to be filled with love and joy, and that all good is coming to you. Intend that it is going to be the best day of your life. Then when you wake in the morning, BEFORE you get out of bed, declare your intentions again for the day and give deep thanks as though you have received them all.

roatan's efficient airport

Roatán's Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport ranks 14 in the world for on-time departures, a very important indicator of efficiency in the aviation industry in the country, according to a study published by Flight View in May this year. As a result of the delivery of real-time flight information in Honduras, Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport appears with 85.7% efficiency in on-time departures of its total number of flights per month.

The study includes 860 airports worldwide. Importantly, the first 13 places in this ranking are occupied by European airports, the Honduran airport being the first in the Americas to excel in that category. Aeropuertos de Honduras executives highlighted the fact that the Roatan International Airport appears in the top 14 places in this table, since such recognition improves operational and marketing capabilities.

"Appearing in this global ranking is a recognition of the efforts of Aeropuertos de Honduras in the availability of resources and infrastructure; additionally it is evidence of planning, organization and coordination between Roatan airport and various operational managers,” said Shanna Ebanks, airport manager.

be proactive, use the frequency

It is so important that you are grateful for everything in your life. Many people focus on the one thing they want and then forget to be grateful for all the things they have. Without gratitude you cannot achieve anything through the law of attraction, because if you are not emanating gratitude from your being, then by default you are emanating ungratefulness. Be proactive and use the frequency of your being to receive what you want.
