The time has come.
The life I was living and the life I’ve dreamed of living are colliding
now more and more. I have been my
very best client. The creator in
me is constantly hungry and the visualizations I have been feeding it are
actually being created. But it’s
not like just creating the picture- it’s more like you step INTO the
picture. You imagine what it LOOKS
like. Then you imagine what it FEELS
like. And then you practice. THAT’S IT.
That’s it because all of a sudden you find yourself in a place
that the two get glued together so well that you find yourself in that
vibration even longer. And then
even longer until it gets flipped and you experience THAT more positive
vibration and existence more than the you that just imagined it.
Want to try it out? Want to see if it works? Doing this allows you to imagine even BIGGER. To see past whatever limitation you
find as you proceed through your journey.
And you will find them- your limitations. A very good friend of mine recently asked the question, “If
there was no fear how would it be” and it hit something in me. It helped me to identify that all of my
limitations are anchored by fear.
How about you? Think about
what you tell yourself that keeps you held back from progressing in some way…
what is your excuse? Once you get
that it should be easier to find what fear it is connected to.
Once you find the fear anchor, make peace with it. Contemplate whether it is a truth you
need to still believe and hold on to.
If it is not, accept that it may have been necessary to get you through
a period in your life but it is no longer needed.
And then do something different. Change YOUR role in that interaction. Say something different. Do something different. We are responsible for our output. If that is true, readjust your position
if needed and watch the outcome.
You will notice something positive if you provide and connect with
Today I wanted to share that the thought of tomorrow excites me. What excites me the most about tomorrow is that I am now certain- free of doubt- that my tomorrow is a product of today. This may seem like something you've heard before but I'm talking a bit more consciously ; )
You see, every day we wake with more time. Each day provides for us the opportunity to think, to act and to do- to create our life. What we do with that time directly and indirectly creates our world.
More and more people all over the globe are understanding and using this information to more consciously steer their lives in any way they can imagine it. You just have to be open enough to try.
Just try try and improve whats been bothering you. Just try to see past your current circumstances and begin to dream again. To dig inside and uncover the magic that has been inside of you the whole time.
I tried. I opened myself up to this idea... and then I began to FEEL
better. So then of course I did it more... I began using the affirmation, "I attract and am surrounded by like-minded people", even though 98% of the people in my life thought I was just nuts ; )
Looking back I can see how they thought I was nuts. For me though, it was the chance of something better that made it worth the risk of finding out if I was right or indeed, just nuts.
Let me tell you that magical things are happening. They've been happening all along but I was programmed to believe that magic and greatness were for someone else... someone maybe famous or ridiculously smart. The secret I have really learned is that it IS in you. It IS in me.
We each have the option to just try and believe or not to. If you don't its ok... you will not have to risk improving anything in your life or risk experiencing fabulous new opportunities... it can just keep going and going, headed in the direction it already has been steered in...but remember that today, right this minute, you are creating your tomorrow too, whether you try it or not. Much Love.
Recently while driving to a new location in an unfamiliar
area, I was surprised to find that the exit I was supposed to take was
closed. A quick moment of panic
went through me… “Oh my god how am I going to get to my appointment? Am I going to be late?” These thoughts
quickly ran through my mind as I passed the exit I was planning on taking to my
But then my navigation did something fabulous. Instead of shutting down or turning off
or malfunctioning, it read, “REROUTING”.
It took only a few seconds for a new set of directions that led me to my
destination and relief came over me as I laughed out loud. It dawned on me that I was never in jeopardy
of not making it to my destination; As long as I continued I would get there.
So I ask, how good is your navigation system? We all have one… it doesn’t matter if
you have thought about it or not, something drives us to think, act and believe
what we do. We say what we say and
react how we react because of the system we have built over the years.
Sometimes we can’t get there how we planned but we can allow
ourselves to REROUTE us whenever is necessary. We each have this system. We each have the capability to set our goal and see to it
that we get there without malfunctioning.
REROUTING is a gift. It is
another way. It is an
alternative. It is one step closer
to the destination in which a different experience can be had and your
destination can be reached.
Play with this idea today. When something doesn’t go as you wish it would try not to
let your outdated navigation system let you react or continue as you did in the
past. Allow yourself to take a few
seconds and REROUTE. Keep your
thoughts on your goal or your destination and know that there is ALWAYS another
way. Much Love.
“A single event can awaken within us a stranger
totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery
So what makes us decide change is necessary? Most of us go
through life on autopilot just accepting and reinforcing what we were told
about ourselves and the world, but some of us do not. At some point in our lives, some people have an experience
that forces them to either question what they are doing or why they do what
they do. At some point, some of us
just don’t feel comfortable believing the same things we were trained to
It is this moment that Bill Harris, the mastermind of the
Centerpointe Research Institute and the brain behind Holosync* technology,
refers to as threshold. I strongly suggest you add everything
he creates to your personal development program. He explains how everything has a threshold. A threshold is a limit. I have one, you have one, the car has
one, your shirt has one and so on.
When a threshold has been reached one of two things can happen. It can cease to exist or restructure
and be as something different.
When your shirt has reached its threshold with worn holes in
it, you can throw it away or turn it into a rag to clean with. When your car has reached its threshold
it will stop working. A junkyard
will trash it or turn it into something else by recycling its parts. When you have reached your threshold in
a relationship, you can leave or readjust. The same goes for your job or profession. When you can’t continue living as you
do, you can stop living or find a different way to exist. I strongly suggest the latter, but the
point is that everything has a
I will never forget sitting in the courtroom once upon a
time. In front of the judge were a
married couple and their attorneys.
They were there because of a restraining order that she wanted to
drop. When the judge heard her ask to
drop the restraining order and looked confused. He stopped
looking at his paperwork and just looked at her in disbelief. The courtroom was silent. After what seemed like a long time, he
picked the papers up again and began to read out loud why she had originally
filed the restraining order. She
had been held hostage in her own home for days with the threat of being shot if
she left, by her husband. He
tortured her. She wanted to
forgive him and drop the restraining order she had just gotten only a week prior.
The judge stopped reading the list of offenses and said
something that had stuck with me since.
He said, “Everyone has a point of no return. Some women leave after being abused once, some leave 5 years
in and some 20. They all
leave. Unfortunately some are
forced to leave by the hand of the abuser before they have the sense to leave.” He did not grant her the dismissal of
the restraining order. I cried for
That judge understood threshold. Everyone has one and they are all different. You can understand why they are all
different because you understand that we are all made up of different
interpretations of our experiences, right? Both of those people were working with an internal hard
drive (unconscious) that had been combined with all of the input they had
gathered through their lives. Both
of them saw life from a different place, different expectations, different
reasoning. What he reportedly had
done to his wife was appalling to me at the time, but the question is, what was
he exposed to that made him think it was ok do behave in such a way? And her too, what had she been exposed
to believe that it was ok for her to drop the restraining order? We cannot judge based on our perception
of the world. We are built with
different wiring and the programming possibilities are limitless.
Although our wiring is different, we all have a threshold
and the ability to change how we see and experience things. Some people experience threshold
earlier in life, and some much later.
Have you ever noticed the after effect of a traumatic
experience in someone’s life? Have
you or someone you know gone through a divorce or had a bad accident or
recovered from an addiction? Perhaps
you are or know of someone who has suddenly lost a job or a loved one.
I would like to illustrate threshold by reminding you of a celebrity that is pretty publicly watched.
A few years ago, Brittany Spears went through a very public,
very difficult break up with her husband and father of two children. We were inundated with “news” of the
court proceedings, private details and the behaviors of both parties. Then we watched, as the pop star seemed
to change. She changed physically,
gaining some weight and shaving her hair, we were told of different behavior. She was going out and partying. To those watching she just lost it. She was no longer the
star she was. But the truth that I
see is that she had reached her threshold. Her life was no longer able to function the way it had been
and she was going through a period of recovery and discovery. She was recovering from a big
That recovering led her to
much discovery about who she was, who she is and how she wanted to be. Today we
have the pop star back but different than before. Her world has shifted and she is living a new life, with new
perspectives and goals. It was all
nothing more than part of her process.
Reaching a threshold is important to the development
of your life. Breaking
through to the other side of that threshold is what allows you to live with a
new perspective. It is an
adjustment to the creation of you.
When I first began holding Meeting of the Mind discussion
groups this was a topic that always got great response. It doesn’t matter HOW it happened. It matters more THAT it happened. It is a way to confirm and
reassure that whatever is happening in your life needs to happen. You wouldn’t be who you are, thinking
as you think, believing what you believe, without these seemingly “bad”
events. I have heard people say,
‘things happen for a reason’, but this is a much deeper concept.
As we move throughout our journey we sometimes get “stuck”
in a place that prevents us from moving toward a place where we could be
thriving-our purpose. If we ignore
the signs and opportunities that present themselves, the universe has a funny
way of making it happen for us.
Think back to a difficult event in your life. Think about the expectation you put into
that event. Think about the
energy. Think about the
resistance. Did your expectations
or energy or resistance make it stop happening? My guess is no.
Eckhart Tolle, in A New Earth, explains how resistance needs resistance;
it keeps the struggle alive. When
you stop resisting something it stops.
Remember that every single event adds to the creation of who
we are and where we are headed.
This information allows you to acknowledge when something happens that
you don’t feel good about and then find something that is positive in it.
Sometimes it is very difficult, especially in the beginning,
to think of something positive. I
understand this very well. What
worked for me and what I have my clients do is have a “go to” thought.
Think of something that makes you smile. It could be a memory or a person or an
event- anything. Close your eyes and
picture it using as many senses as you can. Go ahead and do that.
Did you smile?
Did it feel good? If not go
back and think about it in more detail or pick something else. It should be something that provokes a
Write down a memory or thought that makes you smile. Use as many details as possible (all of
That is your “go to” thought. Use it whenever something bothers you. Whenever you feel yourself omitting bad
energy-whenever you have a pain in your gut or your heart or your head, use
this thought to make you smile.
The more you do it the easier it will be and soon you will feel good
more than you feel not good.
I gave up being a victim of circumstance when I started
doing this. Regardless of what was
going on in my world, if I took a second to imagine my “go to” thought I would
feel better. My thought was, and
has been, of my daughter running up to greet me at the end of a long work day
smiling and yelling, “…Mommy!!!!!!”
It puts a smile on my face and fills my heart with overwhelming
love. I cannot feel bad while I
think of that moment.
Take some time to perfect a “go to” thought. Teach your children how to create a “go
to” thought. Tell your friends and
family about creating a “go to” thought.
It is a gift of awareness and relief. It is a life vest during the storm. It is a moment of happiness that has
THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND
Unlike the Conscious mind, the Unconscious mind never
rests. From the time we are born, the information our
senses collect and interpret gets stored here. It is the storage room of thought. Every experience we have had is here. You may not remember what happened to
you on the first day of sixth grade, but its there in your unconscious
This is important information to understand because it
explains for us why we are each so different and why perhaps, it has been difficult
to understand why others do or say or think or believe what they do. Each one of us is made up of different
interpretations of experience. This is very important because it
defines who we are right now by what we have collected, interpreted and
stored. You are simply a sum of
your experiences; everything you have liked is stored, everything you don’t is
stored. These become your personal
truths, your reasons for why you think and believe what you do. Understanding this is huge because it
allows you to see every person as nothing more than the sum of their
interpreted experiences. In a
sense, we are each walking around with different programming. Realizing this takes away the “who is ‘right’”
and “who is ‘wrong’”. Once this is
achieved, miraculous things happen.
Once you start seeing the world and the people in it as sums of their
personal experience, it allows you to remove any guilt, resentment, and
anger. Removing who is right
and who is wrong allows for better communication, more understanding and better
results n everything you do.
Think of something that someone has said or done to make you
feel guilty or angry or disappointed.
Now think of that person as a sum of their personal
experience. Their actions were
provoked by their belief system, by their experience. You may not know their personal experience, but you can be
assured it was not the same as yours.
What do you know about their personal
experience that might tell them that their beliefs/thoughts/actions involved
Look at your reaction to or expectations of that
person. Do you see what in your
experience would tell you to feel guilty or angry or disappointed?
Does this change how you feel? See both sides as truth to the person. Take away who is right or wrong. How could this awareness rid you of the
negativity you have spent here?
If you have any siblings or friends from long ago, ask them
about an event that you shared.
What you will find is that your stories are different. Even if you shared the exact same
experience, your approach or view had to be different based on this
philosophy. Let’s say for example
that one of my siblings got very sick around Christmas because of an allergy to
the Christmas tree. How could our
experience be the same? Maybe my
favorite part of the day was to decorate the tree and maybe that was a
nightmare to him. Because of this, both have a very different “same” experience
and both have very good reason for why they do.
You may have heard the saying, “You are what you
think.” I don’t believe that. I believe you are what you have thought.
I can thank Bob Proctor, Rev. Beckwith and Jack Canfield for that
valuable insight from their fabulous program, The Secret Science of Getting Rich. It is a powerful suggestion, don’t you agree? You are not what you think, but what
you have thought. Most of us go
through life on auto-pilot, not consciously thinking about what we think. Amazing to think this is what is
creating who we are.
So how do we build this storage room of thought? Why are we all so different? It starts with our parents. Parents are usually the first ones in
our lives to build this structure.
Our identity is started with some sort of label. Were you the pretty one? The athlete? The complainer?
The troublemaker? Were you
smart? Funny? Stupid? Lazy? These labels helped define who we were.
Better yet, they helped define who we thought
we were. (Before using this
as a moment to blame your parents, I suggest you understand that the same is
true for them. Their identity was
started by their parents and so on.)
Then we went off to school and mixed with our peers. We made friends based on shared common
beliefs. The “smart” kids hung out
together as did the “athletes” and the “troublemakers”. The connection in our thought process
that began with who we thought we were was reinforced with our friends. The activities we did with our friends
reinforced that label even more. On playgrounds around the world there are
groups of children finding peers that share the same perception of
themselves. Maybe playing football
with your peers helped “prove” you were athletic. Perhaps your friends didn’t play any sports or do any
activities, reinforcing how lazy you were. The debate team certainly helped those kids at least APPEAR
smart. What were you a part of
growing up? What was your “label”?
Throughout our lives we have been exposed to media. Media is another way of reinforcing who
we think we are, what we like and what we believe. Media comes in many forms: music, TV, movies, books,
magazines, Internet and more. I am
a big fan of the media. Media, in
one form or another, has inspired me every single day for the past few
years. Before that I was
influenced. There is a
consciously choose what I allow to enter my brain. I do not listen or watch or read anything that does not
inspire me. If it doesn’t feel
good, I don’t partake in it. In
fact, I am so sensitive to this now that I can hear things that are intended to
be negative or scary or just bad from across a room. When I do I usually leave. I don’t want to allow it to connect to anything in my
So what are you
reinforcing in your life right now?
What do you watch/ listen to in the morning? How does it make you feel?
What do you watch or listen to at night? How does it make you feel?
What magazines and/or books do you read? How do they make you feel?
What kind of movies do you enjoy watching? How do they make you feel?
What music do you listen to? How does it make you feel?
Where do you spend most of your time online? How does it make you feel?
All of your answers can either be an influence or a source
of inspiration. Do you feel
inspired? Do you feel inspired by
the reinforcement you are choosing in your life? Media is a perfect tool for us to use to feel fabulous. Doing so does require, however, that
you think about how you are feeling about the information you are gathering
with your senses.
I am a true lover of music. It plays when I wake, when I work and usually when I
sleep. It wasn’t until after
I found a bunch of Cd’s in an old box that I noticed how stages of my journey
were marked by music. I knew just
where I was in my life by each Cd I looked at. There was some sad music, some angry music (thank you
Alanis) and lots of songs I would sing with the intention of trying to
motivate, inspire or just make myself feel good.
So ask yourself what you are reinforcing in your life. Look closely at all of the information
you are gathering and see how you are interpreting it. Joe Vitale in his book, The Attractor Factor, tells the readers
to ask themselves what they complain about. How fabulous! How simple yet revealing. It shows exactly how you are
interpreting that thing. Ask
yourself that question and then buy his book. It will be needed for the growth you are experiencing.
Make a list about what you complain about. If you can’t think of anything ask your
friends and family. They know what
you complain about. And consider
this your goodbye list. This is
not to reinforce what you are thinking. It is to make you AWARE of what you are
thinking and how you are thinking.
So I ask you, do you like what you are reinforcing? If not, no worries. You are after all only what you have
thought… Much love.
o your brain… The brain is a beautiful machine, responsible
for so many parts of our existence.
I have studied two of those parts for the past few years: the conscious and unconscious. What I have learned about our brains has helped me to transform my entire life. Learning about my brain has allowed me the opportunity to navigate through my life differently- better. It has been so life transforming that it has become my intent to help people of all ages- learn how their thoughts impact their life experience and that each individual has the tool to experience a better version of the life you are living.
YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND
Your conscious mind is very diligent. It awakes and sleeps when we do. Its job, while we are awake, is to
collect information for us. It has
been doing that since the moment we were first born (some would argue even
before that). How does it collect
information? Through our five senses. TASTE TOUCH SMELL SIGHT and SOUND. Remember learning those in grammar
school? Well, they started working
long before you knew about them.
You are gathering information every second. If the milk has expired and you didn’t see
the date, how do you know it’s spoiled? You taste
it. Very valuable, don’t you
agree? How often do you touch
the hot stove? The sense of touch will warn you that
perhaps it’s not a good idea. Have
you ever smelled
something burning or
maybe a gas leak? How about a baby’s
soiled diaper? Again, this is
pretty valuable information in my opinion. What do you see
that provides valuable information
for you? How about the red traffic
light? A rash on your skin? Important? What about the sound
of someone calling your name? Or
of a child calling for help,
or a person calling you stupid?
Your senses are working for you every second you are awake. We use them to navigate through the
So the conscious mind collects, interprets and then stores
information for us. It stores the
information based on what has been already stored. Let me explain.
Starting with the moment we are born, our journey is led by what feels
good and what doesn’t. We
determine that with our senses and then that information is gathered and
If a food makes you ill, you probably avoid that food
throughout your journey. If a
person makes you feel good, you probably plan being with them. Maybe certain material feels good on your skin so you prefer
wearing it. The perfume or cologne
you wear may reinforce how people respond to you which makes you want to wear
it more often. The smell of apple
juice is connected to the smell of diapers for me. It is not a favorite.
My sense of smell collected that input during a time in my life when I
was changing a lot of diapers and pouring a lot of apple juice. Not the greatest connection, but
nonetheless it was collected, interpreted, stored and has affected how I think
and feel about apple juice.
Many years ago I worked in an Aveda concept salon. There were many oils that could be used
for many different purposes. We
were taught that before you use oil on a client, a test needed to be done. We had to determine what smell was
appealing to the client and which was not so that their service would be
completely enjoyable. So I would
ask them to pick about five oils and then I would pick a few more. The interesting thing is that they would
report the ones they picked as smelling like a “time” or “memory”. Pine for example, would smell like
“Christmas” and cinnamon would smell like “fall”. I would even get responses to some of the oils like “grandma’s
house” and “the beach”.
the oils they would smell that they had no connection to would get a different
response. Thinking back it is so
fabulous to think of them starting a new connection. They would smell and smell again and think and smell again. They would try to associate it with one
that was familiar and finally that would dictate whether they liked it or not.
Your senses are always working for you. Pause autopilot for a moment and see
what they are telling you. How do
you feel right now? Do a check of
your senses if you haven’t already.
How does each of those things make you feel? Are you thirsty? Are you hungry? Are you comfortable? If the answer is yes, you will probably
continue reading, but if not, you may have to stop and take action in some
way. You may have to respond to
the information your senses have provided for you at this moment.
What adjustments can you make right now with this
awareness? (Get something to eat,
adjust the music, lower the sound on the TV, adjust the lighting, grab a
Our conscious mind works very hard for us. It is constantly giving us information
about our surroundings.
Congratulations on paying attention to it. I suggest you do it more often, but we will get more into
that a bit later. Much love.
many people I meet express to me that they have never really thought about
their purpose. I have asked people
of all ages; people from many religious and socio-economic backgrounds and
across the board people don’t generally ask themselves that question. The question of “what is my purpose
don’t really remember the exact moment I asked myself that question. For me it was more of an
evolution. I began knowing
nothing, went through a period of thinking I knew everything and then to a
point of understanding on a much bigger scale that what I know and learn is a
fraction of the infinite possibilities and unlimited potential of everything.
see we each have a purpose. Our purpose is why we are here…. It is what we can
contribute to make the universe (universal energy) better or stronger or more
What I have discovered is that once you open yourself up to finding
out your purpose, the clues are usually pretty evident and you can begin living
a life filled with the things you love.
you want to discover what your purpose is…?
are a few things to ask first.
What are your talents? What
are you good at? What do people
ask your opinion on or for help with? We
are given talents to be used as tools, a means of carrying out our purpose.
are all talented at something.
It’s that thing you do so easily or well and is brought to your
attention by way of compliments and maybe even favors.
once you can clearly list your talents, add to that list the things that you
are passionate about… What makes you happy? What brings you joy?
If you don’t know I suggest you start paying attention.
at those things carefully. They
may seem random or they may not.
Do any of those things, those talents, feel good? Do any of them bring you joy?
omit positive energy when you are positive. Look at your day. Does your day include any of those
things that make you feel good? Positive energy feels gooood. It is a ratio kind of thing… the more time you spend incorporating the things that make
you feel good, the more you feel good.
The less time you spend doing the things you are innately good at and
the things that bring you joy, the less good you feel.
about your talents and your passions.
Find a way to incorporate them into your daily activities. Once you can see your purpose and your
talents working together, you can live harmoniously and in a constant state of
conscious evolution. Change your ratio and change your result. Much love.
Ah yes, patience. When patience are combined with passion and purpose anything can happen. Your circumstances do not have ANY hold on what your tomorrow can be... Think of all the "reasons" you allow yourself not to succeed... all of the blame or jealousy or fear and then ask yourself what you need to do or keep doing or do a little differently to become successful.
How do people succeed? They don't give up. Unfortunately if you are like I was, you may have created all kinds of beliefs about why people succeed. Perhaps they were born into a successful family or they had more money or they ... whatever- fill in the blank. My truth now is that people who succeed refuse to rest at failure. That is not to say that they don't fail, but that they just don't stop because of it. They stay focused on their vision and the belief that they can achieve what they want. The believe in their purpose and are ignited by the passion to become whatever it is they know they can be. Take a look at some pretty successful people in my opinion and ask yourself if they would have succeeded if they stopped along the way because of failures...
Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and started a business called Traf-O-Data which failed. He them went on to create what we all know as Microsoft... a little thanks for him not giving up?
Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper editing position before starting a number of businesses that left him bankrupt... He didn't rest at failure and I know that my daughter and I (along with the millions who flock to his empire and watch his movies and buy his toys) are very happy that he didn't rest at failure. Thank you Mr. Disney.
Albert Einstein didn't speak until he was 4 and couldn't read until he was 7... they thought he was mentally handicapped and was expelled from school. Regardless of what he was told or what obstacles entered his path, he went on to win a Nobel Prize and has become the face of genius and modern physics... thank you for not giving up Mr. Einstein.
Thomas Edison was called stupid and fired from his first two jobs. It wasn't until after failing at over 1000 attempts with the light bulb that it finally worked... thank you SO much for not giving up Mr. Edison.
Oprah Winfrey was raised in an abusive home and even fired from a reporting job early in her career. The passion and purpose she must have felt deep within prevented her from giving up and now is one of the most successful people in the world... in the world! Ms. Winfrey, you are an inspiration and I thank you for not giving up.
Steven Spielberg attempted 3 times to be accepted into the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television and was rejected all 3 times! He ended up at another school but dropped out shortly to just become a the director he knew he so passionately wanted to be... I thank very much for not giving up Mr. Spielberg.
You see, if attaining your goals and becoming successful is done by not giving up then indeed, patience are a virtue. Patience are the tool that will get you through seemingly unfortunate events, failed attempts and "rough patches" along your journey. So my question to you is this: In the pit of your being, what do you feel you are you meant to be successful at and why have you not put your passion and purpose into that equation? There is no limit to what you can have, do or be... So like Micheal Jackson said... "don't stop till you get enough"!!!!!!
So a new year is around the corner and as we look back at this past year it is a perfect time to decide if you are moving closer to your goals or not. It may be the perfect time for you to decide what goals you would like to make if you haven't already. This could be the opportunity you have been waiting for to make something happen.
There are a few things that may be helpful as you decide to make change in the upcoming weeks. They are not the traditional resolution ideas. My intent is to provide more than a list of fleeting resolutions...
Firstly, be aware that regardless of what you decide, your future is being created by you right now. Whether you do something differently or continue with the way you have been doing things, you are creating situations, opportunities and results that will reflect exactly what it is that you ARE doing. Every single moment, with every single thought and action on your part, you are moving into your next phase... your life, our lives, are constantly progressing, so be aware of this as you think about how
you would like to be living.
Secondly, I would love for you to entertain the idea of big thinking. Perhaps losing a few pounds or quitting a bad habit or making more money sounds great but what does that mean to you? Look past the thing you think you'd like to achieve or aquire and dig a little deeper. What do you want your life to be like? How do you want to spend your everyday? How would you like to feel as you navigate through your days? If, in your mind, losing weight will make you happier ask yourself why. Will it make you feel more confident? Will it make you more ready for a new job or relationship? If, in your mind, quitting a bad habit will make you more responsible or more dependable how would that feel? And money... how would it feel to have more than you need?
you want to make the change and being able to identify the feeling that you really desire makes making the change that much easier. Why? Because it is the feeling that we crave... and why do we crave that feeling? Because we believe what we feel. When you allow yourself to feel something it makes it real for us- even if just for that moment. Ever cried during a movie? A movie with actors speaking someone else's words? You cried over an actor reciting someone's script? No, you cried because you felt the feeling... you believed it and you felt it. For that moment it felt real. Have you ever seen a thin person get upset because they believe they are fat? Or a smart person complain that they feel stupid? Even though it may not seem real to you, they feel and react to that feeling.
So before you make that list of things you'd like to achieve this year (please make that list), ask yourself how you feel
about your life and decide how you would prefer to feel
in this new year. Then what? Like Nike says, just do it. Feel that feeling
. Pretend if you have to at first, and remember that every single second is creating your tomorrow. Your brain won't know you are pretending, just like when you cry at a movie... the feeling is what counts. Find ways to generate that feeling of confidence, security, joy, love... because the more you allow yourself to feel
that feeling the more you WILL be feeling that feeling and I promise your goals will be attained.
Happy New Year. Much love.
