Build a Foundation of Abundance

scenic-view-of-wheat-crops-growing-in-fields-picture-id665064618 The ego mind LOVES beliefs and stories!

Our inner beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves create boxes that we unintentionally keep ourselves in. 

The ego mind LOVES these beliefs and stories! They keep you small and supposedly keep you safe.

Right now your ego mind has probably convinced you of certain things…are you in any of these boxes?

I’m struggling for money. I’ll never be wealthy.

I can’t find true love. I’m not even worthy of it.

Sandra and Daniel can’t help me. Why do I bother reading their emails? No one can help me.

There’s so much bad in the world. I can’t possibly be happy until things change.

Here’s a little secret for you… those limiting beliefs that keep you in tiny boxes are the lies told by your ego mind!

How to Manifest with Magic of the Moon

red-sunset-and-moon-picture-id475037618 How to Manifest with Magic of the Moon

One evening after dinner, I was half-listening to a conversation between my husband and one of our daughters. They had been discussing her higher education and long term goals. Chloe happily responded to a question about her life after college, “I don’t know, I am still manifesting.”  My attention was grabbed.  I love how she is empowered by her awareness of co-creating life with the universe. I also love that she left room for the unknown; that’s where the magic resides.

During this same time frame, one of my clients materialized three things on her wish list.  After months of attention, they landed in her lap all at once.  Lilith had been working on a transition out of her current career in marketing.  She also had been seeking a cause that her husband would join her in.  Last she wanted to reestablish her connection with old college friends.  Lilith finally received a new job offer, but with some twists.  She would need to make some lifestyle changes and other big decisions impacting her family.  Her husband supported her, and they began to create a new life together.  She also reached out to her college friends.  They helped formulate a long term plan.  Lilith’s manifestations did not come neatly wrapped with a big red bow.  She had to unravel the stressful pieces before she could declare her gratitude.

Making Room For Surprises & Miracles

businesswoman-standing-on-desk-with-flotation-device-picture-id74181175 Making Room For Surprises & Miracles

There once was a woman who saw on TV that her neighborhood was about to be flooded and the officials said everyone should evacuate.

She believed that God would save her, and she ignored the warning.

Then a city worker knocked on her door and told her to leave for higher ground and she said no, “God will save me.”

Then the floods came, and she had to run up to the second floor to stay dry.

A boat soon came to her second story window to rescue her and she said no, “God will save me.”

The water then filled the third floor and she ended up on the roof of her home.

A helicopter came and she said no, “God will save me.”

Discover the Secrets of Manifestation

child-holding-a-flower-picture-id157582199 Discover the Secrets of Manifestation
We are co-creators with God, so we have the ability to manifest what we want. However, as we all know, this is often easier said than done. We manifest only what we surrender.     ~Martha Beck, 

Certainly it is essential to visualize what we want, along with our excitement about it. Certainly it is essential to take consistent loving action toward manifesting our vision. But then what?

What does Martha Beck’s statement, “We manifest only what we surrender” mean?

To me, it means that, while I need to have goals, if I attach my joy or worth to achieving the goal, I am limiting my ability to manifest. The reason is that when I attach my worth or joy to getting what I want, I am in my wounded self, and the frequency of my wounded self is too low to manifest. I manifest when I let go of attachment and surrender the outcome to spirit, which is NOT something my wounded self wants to do!

My wounded self, by definition, is the part of me that wants control. Since surrender is the opposite of control, the last thing my wounded self wants is to surrender. If I go unconscious and allow my wounded self to be in charge of my intent, I’m actually creating the very powerlessness that my wounded self wants to avoid, and which is certainly not in our highest good during these challenging times.

Cosmic Mix

Cosmic Mix Cosmic Mix

An interesting scene unfolded before me. Two women deep in conversation walked down the street. One was dragging a much-used suitcase, and both were drinking from sparkling champagne flutes. They acted as if it was an everyday outing. It was the combination of crystal glassware and a battered suitcase that caught my attention. This was in contrast to the manicured neighborhood they walked through.

The following morning I was hiking when a bird landed on the trail about seven feet in front of me.  My puppy and I watched a very large rattlesnake come out of the grass on one side of the trail. It slithered right past the bird and disappeared into dried grass on the opposite side.  As we walked by, I could only see the rattles and part of the tail, the head and body were completely hidden.  There was something comforting about observing the bird and the snake experiencing the only life they know.

Our world holds vast opportunities for very unique and rich experiences. We have the potential for amazing views, sounds, tastes, and colors. Every possibility we can think of, can be created. This concept is the foundation of the Law of Attraction.  It is a popular practice used to manifest what you want in life. It encourages ownership for what shows up on your life path, or drive home.

Manifesting In A Time of Madness

stock-market-data-growth-chart-graph-investment-finance-analysis-picture-id1126669376 Manifesting In A Time of Madness

I woke up this morning to news about world markets crashing, Corona virus numbers doubling, speaking engagements being canceled, and so much more.

And yet, I am feeling very optimistic as I wash my hands in hot soapy water and make a list of more food to store up on “just in case.”

Why am I feeling good?

Because my faith is strong that despite what is happening in the outer world (where I have little control) my inner world knows that whatever happens, ultimately I am OK and I am going to be OK.

This is a conscious choice to not dive into the worry and despair and anxiety that is prevalent right now.

Oracle Card Readings – Not to Predict but to Help You Shift

shift Oracle Card Readings – Not to Predict but to Help You Shift

This week I was inspired to choose an Oracle Card to point me in a direction of what to share with you and from the Enchanted Map deck, I picked the card Education.

So with this in mind, I asked myself what I might offer you as something to learn this week.

Since I just finished creating the new amazing Oracle Card 101 course this week, (Most awesome one I might add!) how to get the most out of working with Oracle Cards are foremost on my mind.

So I’m sure if you’re reading this you also watch the weekly Oracle Card Guidance and Lesson as well as pull cards from my website for free (and hopefully own your own decks!) and I bet that once in a while you might get a “WTF- HUH?” reading that freaks you out because it a) may seem to have nothing at all to do with your question, and/or b) the cards are all upside down, or you think they imply fear, disappointment, or you interpret you’re going to get a visit from a boogeyman who might sabotage your plans. EEK!

Allowing Life To Become A Blissful Adventure

blissfullife Allowing Life To Become A Blissful Adventure
Stress like all other things in life is truly controlled by universal laws of attraction. Of course it is our own belief system, that puts them into motion. As you put your self in harmony with the universal laws, you will actually feel the shift in your own energy. Consciousness and awareness also shift.  Most important of course is the shift in your own experience. 

CHANGE OF PERCEPTION

As you change your perception to a happier zone, you actually shift your personal energy. The bottom line of successful manifestation is the intention to create Joy in your life.  Life is then a blissful adventure. The process of continuously flowing energies,  creates a domino effect in terms of manifestation.  Being happier shifts your energy. This also moves what you attract in life. This goes to prove that ongoing manifestation is a result of our desire to create ongoing happiness. 

BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF

Question yourself, are you peaceful, joyous and happy by your own personal standards. Take a while to contemplate on your answer.  Be honest about it,  as your success hinges on your own answers.

But if you have negative ideas around money – it’s hard to make, you’ll never have enough of it, and you don’t like checking your bank account because you’re afraid of what it’s going to tell you – guess what?

You’re going to find it very difficult to make, save, and manage your money.

And you’ll probably never get to a place where you are entirely free from financial worry.

One Idea To End All Scarcity

sharing-headphones-picture-id691987850 One Idea To End All Scarcity

I am curious by nature.

In my SoulSpring post “How I Wrote Three Thousand Pages Without Trying” I described my writing process.

I write from observation, not imagination. I like to discover the obvious by asking unusual questions. I enjoy finding unique perspectives. Observing life with curiosity brings more awareness to the true nature of who I am and the world I live in. I don’t write books, I write pages or at my best, distilled wisdom condensed into a single quote. I call my writing process WISDOM PAGES.

~

Several years ago, I was in the middle of pondering “What is real wealth?” I could see there are plenty of people with money and material things who still live in sorrow, fear and lack. Money is seldom a remedy for lack.

While visiting one of my cousins in Green Bay, I stumbled across my favorite definition of real wealth. It was the kindness and generosity of her true nature that reflected her wealth.

Living An Energy Driven Life

energylife Living An Energy Driven Life
It is an inherent law of the mind that we increase whatever we praise, this has even been validated by Charles Fillmore.  I personally do believe that it is true. If we are living in a state of gratitude, then our level of Joy and happiness is definitely on the increase.  

We have many desires and many dreams which we can even call our goals. These are supposed to propel us to a level of happiness, but in order to gain something, we also have to learn to let go of something. For most people this is the most difficult step to understand as they are very attached to their goals. They fear that letting go will make them give up on their goals. Of course this is not true.

A Thoughtful 2020

woman-using-laptop-picture-id1074029826 A Thoughtful 2020

Many people start off the New Year with resolutions – but I’d like to help you (and I include myself) in stating that beside making resolutions this year – I think it’s so important to try and become more aware of the idea that ‘life follows thought’.

To put it simply … YOU are what you think. Most people don’t realize how powerful thoughts are and how each thought has its own unique energy signature. You’re a magnetic energy being – so that when you have a thought – it’s immediately lodged in your magnetic field, which is more commonly known as your aura.

When that thought remains in this field for any length of time, it often radiates out to be absorbed into the Universe. It’s easy to imagine what’s likely to happen to someone who constantly fears certain things will happen in their life. They’re consciously thinking about it, dwelling on it, obsessing on it, feeding their precious energy into it. The net result is that they end up sending that stream of fear-based thought out into the universe. It’s like they’re holding up a sign above their head with a giant arrow saying: “Hey, come to me!” So, it usually does. Then you’ll hear them say: “I knew this was going to happen!” It’s not rocket science to see that we attract what we think.

Success and Happiness: The Relationship Between Them

successful-mountain-ascent-picture-id1062168766 Success and Happiness: The Relationship Between Them

What does success mean to you?

In all of my years teaching my Success Principles to others, no two people have answered that question with the same answer.

Answers will vary based on values, goals, age, and life experiences. Success is a deeply personal, intimate idea and each of us will answer it in different ways.

Let me ask you another question. What does happiness mean to you?

Again, it’s deeply personal and can be framed from many different perspectives — personal, professional, spiritual, and relationships to name a few.

My sincere hope is that you position yourself so that you can live a life that includes success, happiness, and fulfillment. They are not mutually exclusive.

In fact, when you take the time to consider what truly makes you happy, it can lead to a new definition of personal success.

By following principles of success and happiness, you can lead a rich and enriching life.

The Universe Law of Positive Energy

happystress The Universe Law of Positive Energy
We must realize that stress is created by our own negative thought patterns. We need to adopt the attitude of positive assumption. We have to understand that there is a law in the Universe of positive energy, which is attracting a positive result. On another note, we also need to realize that our life's attitudes are a result of our thought patterns.  We simply have to turn ourselves into natural self confident persons. This will naturally attract positive energies into our lives and give us only positive results. It is very easy to step into a stressful zone. Weakness is an inherent part of every individual 's thought process.  We have to create a conscious awareness in the opposite thought process. 

 POSITIVE EXPECTATION

I want to talk about how as conscious individuals we have the capacity to change our own thoughts, and consequentially our own reality.  Positive expectations means that we create a dynamic awareness, which turns our positive thoughts into a reality by producing a vibrant energy attracting Universal blessings.

Your Dream Is Already A Reality

expressions Your Dream Is Already A Reality

The core basis of my belief and understanding about manifestation (whether you are manifesting love, a car, a new career, or a new little black dress) is this:

There is no “time.” The past, present, and future all happen simultaneously. When we have a desire for something, it’s because some part of us “already knows that this is possible for us,” on an unseen level.

Your dream is not some random thing out there somewhere, it is already in existence, calling upon you to dream it into your existence.
To do this, we must be willing to own and embrace the dream or desire and then take the necessary, appropriate action steps to bring it into 3-D reality.

The secret sauce for this is what I call feelingizations™ a process to get you out of your head and into your heart to deeply feel that what you have asked for IS already yours.

You are a Diamond. Own Your Personal Growth.

woman-with-arms-outstretched-in-snow-picture-id102284321 You are a Diamond. Own Your Personal Growth.

When I first began this journey of transformation that began 33 years ago and brought me here, I came to it with a lot of ideas of being victimized by life, of the unfairness of the stories perpetuated in my family by real tragedies, and by my own experience. Why would I believe in a better life? I will be honest, I didn’t trust that it was really possible for me. The issues that dogged us convinced me that life was hard, and it would be hard and when it didn’t work out the way I hoped, it was proof that I had done something wrong, and that fate would continue to prove that I was a mistake. 

Everything changed when I got sober and began following a specific spiritual program. I began to see the world as alive. I see the world today as ensouled—everything animated with life and Spirit. I don’t see myself as a victim ever. What changed? 

Well, it was a number of things I began to do differently—one was attending meditation classes at a Tibetan temple in Toronto frequented by others in recovery who were seeking new ways of living. There was one evening, now indelibly etched in my memory—one of those definitive moments, a turning point in my life when I sat with our teacher after class sharing a moment of hopelessness (which I had less and less but that night I was in some drama about my then-boyfriend.) He turned to me after quietly listening with great patience and said, “You see the hurt, but I see your life is like a diamond, a path of time and great pressure. When you can see the gifts in this, the great value, see what you’re becoming then you will be free.”

Sports Fans Can Teach You A Thing Or Two About Manifesting Your Dream

baseballdream Sports Fans Can Teach You A Thing Or Two About Manifesting Your Dream

I’m not a baseball fan, but for a couple years I had the honor of living next door to an MVP Cubs player in Chicago. So, one afternoon I joined his family to attend my first ever Cubs game.  Mind you, I’ve lived in Chicago, all combined for over twenty years, which tells you how much I am not a baseball guy.   

I went to the game for two reasons.  First, of course to see my neighbor play, but secondly and secretly firstly, I wanted to see the tens of thousands of people who are passionately, unapologetically Cubs fans in action.  I wanted to see what this was all about for them, and why they stay devoted whether the Cubs make it to the playoffs or land in last place.

Let me tell you ... the fans did not disappoint. There were almost 40,000 people dressed in Cubs gear, carrying banners, balloons, and homemade signs. Many painted their faces and some their chests with their favorite players name and/or number. OMG - it was amazing.  Honestly, I didn’t feel what they were feeling but what they were feeling was undeniable. It was out-and-out passion!

Your work is not your Source, God is your Source

source Your work is not your Source, God is your Source

Where do you find inspiration and motivation? I often trip over it in the most unlikely places.

Today I walked into my workout room and the TV was on and Pastor Joel Osteen was just beginning his sermon. Something told me to listen. I did.

I was surprised and delighted to hear what I would call Law of Attraction being preached in Christian terminology.

What a great reminder when I heard him say:

“Your work is not your Source, God is your Source.”

Why Adults Need Regular Playtime

inthemoment Why Adults Need Regular Playtime

Kids aren’t the only ones who need to play, adults need regular playtime, too.

Earlier this year, my wife and I spent a month living in a beachfront house in Maui, Hawaii. We had done the same thing last year and went back this year because it was such an amazingly fun and bonding experience for us.

Every morning, I got up early and did my regular meditation and yoga or qigong routine. Then I ate breakfast and spent two hours writing.

After that, the rest of the day was devoted to playtime.

My wife and I went swimming, snorkeling, sailing, and hiking. We relaxed on the beach and enjoyed some incredible meals at some great restaurants. And we spent our evenings reading, socializing with friends, playing Scrabble, listening to music, and watching our favorite TV shows.

And you know what?
