Reconnecting With Your Passion

Sitting in Quiet Contemplation


Life is good, life is AWESOME…Life is what you make of it, especially if you reconnect with your passion. Your passion for life, for love, for living, and for leaving a legacy. You are here to live an incredibly fabulous life and the way to that FAB, is through your heart, your soul, your spirit, your way of being and way of knowing.

Your passion is that which fuels your life and your way of knowing, your way of being in the world, your way of enjoying the time you have here. But how do we reconnect with our passions? Easy, we sit in quiet contemplation and we visualize our best life possible. What is it that your soul longs for? It is travel? Is it love? Is it voice? Is it entertainment?

As you sit in quite contemplation, and listen as your soul speaks to your heart, your desires, your passions, your loves will become clear to you. That which makes your toes tingle and your heart smile will become a part of your essence.

So take a moment each day…before getting up in the morning or just upon going to bed to reflect in quiet contemplation and listen as your heart speaks to your soul.

Think it, Believe it, Achieve it

Living in Abundance:

First in Your Mind, Next in Your Life

Stephen Covey once said, “Everything is created twice, once in your mind and next in your life.”

Abraham says, “Before you live anything in physical manifestation, you have to have conjured it in vibrational form.”

Mike Dooley says, “thoughts become things.”

You get my drift? Everything we live, everything we experience first happens in our mind and next in our lives. No matter what it is, it happens in our mind first. We create our destiny, we create our purpose, we create our abundance…by the thoughts we have and the underlying beliefs that guide those thoughts. It is vitally important that we understand how the process works. What you believe will guide your thoughts, your thoughts will guide your manifestations. It is extremely important to understand the beliefs that underlie all that you are currently manifested. Because if you want a change, it comes at this level…at the level of BELIEVING!!! So,

  • What is your destiny?
  • What is your deepest purpose?
  • How are you creating abundance in your mind? In your life?

Enjoy reflecting on these questions in your journal, during meditations, when you are stuck in traffic…anytime it suits you…and bask in knowing the insights that will come to you will be invaluable in allowing you to build the life you love.

Your DIVINE Calling: Your Heartsong

Determining Your Purpose and Your Destiny

September 26, 2014

Your purpose is the reason you are here. It is your soul’s dance, your heart’s song, and your spirit’s calling. If you feel like there is something missing in our life, it is because your life is not aligned with your soul’s purpose and your soul is looking for something different. It may be a more diverse experiences, it may be a different way of life, it may be a new journey, or an altered path. Just remember your purpose is aligned to your destiny. And your destiny is aligned to your soul’s purpose and the soul will not be denied.

Thus, the feelings of dissatisfaction. The feeling that something is not right with your world, that feeling, in the pit of your stomach that you were meant for something more, something different, something grander than you are currently living. You know the one, the one that keeps you up at night wondering: Is this it? Is there something else? Is there something more? Should I be doing more? Why do I feel so blah?

And, how do you discover this purpose? How do you unearth your destiny? You listen to what makes your heart sing, what makes your soul dance and what engages the child like playful nature of spirit. You just get silent and listen. Light a candle, darken the room, take a bath, take a drive or go out for a cup a coffee…just to be alone with your heart. Yes, it means you have to quiet your mind, but if you give yourself enough time to quiet your mind, in the silence you will hear your soul talking to you and your next steps will become clear as day. The clarity will be totally enveloping and commanding. You will feel the power of your thoughts and the power of the light shining to you, through you, and beyond.

If you are feeling dissatisfied or like something is not right, it is because you are destined for greatness, you are destined to make things happen, you are leave your mark on this world and it will happen for you, you just need to listen to the silence…and all will become clear.

Creating the Life of Your Dreams

Celebrating Your Future Self

October 1

Manifesting, deliberate creation, magic…all require the active use of your imagination. To get the life you truly want, you need to imagine that life…in all the richness, glory, splendor, and finery…and you need to live it in your mind’s eye. You need to create your future self or the image you have of your future self and “act as if…” as Mike Dooley say. Act as if you are wonderfully wealthy, sparkling rich, joyfully abundant, jubilantly affluent, poetically prosperous, and successfully thriving. This can mean you have more than enough to do all you want to do for yourself and others. This can mean you have so much you don’t know what to do with it all. This can mean that you blissfully live your purpose and passion providing for others what you wish someone had once provided for you.

Your future self could be traveling, saving the world, helping animals, nurturing a foundation…the possibilities are endless and it is all up to you. What do you want to see happen in the world, what would you like to accomplish? Those are the things that draw you, inspire you, motivate you and move you to action. Once you have been moved to action, there is no stopping you and you will never tire of living your dream, and dreaming your life.

You can change any situation you are in, by imagining a different future, telling a different story, and living that story to the best of your ability. If you want to be rich, dress nice and go window-shopping in Nordstrom’s. If you want abundance, take classes and join millionaire groups. If you want wealth, study investments and decide which one is best for you. Have fun…most importantly; remember to have fun, more fun than you have ever had in your life. This will put you in a vibrational mode that will be out of this world…yes, celestial…astronomical…cosmic…and will set you spiraling in the vortex like no-body’s business. So want a million…go ahead, start living like a millionaire.

Your Greatest Joy!!!

Living Your Manifestations

October 2, 2014

 Living your manifestations is one of your greatest joys. As a matter of fact, when all is revealed to you, you will find that you were living your manifestations all along and it was just a matter of time before you became aware of it and started living the life of your dreams. You see, all you are currently living is what you have manifested and all you will live is what you have manifested, so living your manifestations is a constant.

Now conscious creation is what comes when we become aware of the power of our minds, hearts, and souls to create the life of our dreams. Once we have that awareness, then we become conscious of how we can consciously create the life we want to live and we begin living, loving, and enjoying our manifestations.

Let go of the past, let go of the future, let go of the hows…and just be in silent gratefulness for the blessings and the rest will just fall into place for you. Stop fretting the small stuff, stop sweating when and where it will happen and just trust that this is your year, your day, your time and the time will appear, just as it should…just as it is destined…just as it is ordained.

Defining your Vibrational Energy

October 4, 2014

According to Abraham, the law of vibration is the foundation to the law of attraction. The Universe is always vibrating and the vibrational energy we put out there is the vibrational energy that we receive. If you put out positive vibes, speak your truth, walk with purpose, and feel deeply, you will be vibrating at an incredible level of positive energy. And the secret to manifesting abundance or manifesting any positive change it so vibrate positive energy. If you are vibrating negative energy around money because you feel money is evil, money is dirty, money is bad, money breeds greed, then you will manifest negative events and emotions around money. If you want abundance, then practice vibrating positive energy toward vibration and the magic will happen. Reflect on the following three questions regarding positive vibrational energy:

  • How do you vibrate positive energy?
  • How can you live your life care-free?
  • What steps are you taking to stay in positivity?

Now think about what you wrote and what changes you can make to stay in positivity, to stay in positive energy, to vibrate at a level that is aligned with your desires. If you have been vibrating at a negative energy, what do you need to do to change it to a more positive focus?

Understanding the Vortex

Playing, Having Fun, Enjoying Life

October 5, 2014

There is a lot written about the VORTEX popularized by Abraham through his teachings to Esther, which she freely shares with all of us. The Vortex is that sweet place where everything is positively aligned to allow manifestations to happen quickly and easily. It is when your thinking is aligned with your beliefs and values; you are grateful for what you have; and you are having the time of your life. When all of these align, you are in the vortex where you start spinning success out of control. (the opposite is true as well, if you are negatively aligned, then your life can start spinning negatively out of control.)

The vortex is where our greatest energy lies and it allows us to be truly open to the possibilities, the magic, the promises and the likelihoods. It is where we are spinning out of control in a powerful current with a mind and life of its own, carrying us toward our dreams, our desires, our wants, and our needs. It is the energy we have created that allows us to get where we are going as quickly as we want to get there. It is the irresistible force that we create when we align our gratitude for what we have to the powerful images of what we want—and voila, you are in the vortex and life is never the same again.

So play with powerful images and energy, have more fun than you thought possible, and enjoy all life has to offer  and see where the vortex takes you.

The Fire in Your Belly

Pitching your Passion

October 6

Your passion is what drives you to out of this world success, to hit the homerun out of the ball park, to reach higher and deeper for that which makes you tick. It is the fire in your belly, as Stephen Covey says. Your passion is also your purpose. That which resonates with you, makes your heart sing, makes your soul dance and your spirit move. These passions are what drive you and keep you going through the tough times. It is knowing how and why you want to make a difference in your life, the lives of your children, the lives of the people in your community…that is your passion. To help you identify your deepest, most fulfilling desires, reflect on the following:

  • What are your deepest desires for a fulfilling life?
  • What brings you pure joy and happiness?
  • How do you realize your passion?

Knowing how to pitch your passion in a few words is necessary for your success. It can be your 6 word mantra, your 140 character statement, your elevator speech, or even your affirmation. It just has to convey, with no ambiguity what you are about, why you are here, what you hope to accomplish, and the legacy you will leave for generations to come. It provides you with a laser like focus on what you wish to accomplish that helps you pay attention to that which is coming at you that is most aligned with your life’s work.

So start now with 6 words, 140 characters, or an affirmation…and let everyone know what you are about.

Setting Your Intentions

Your Journey as You Imagine It

October 7

At times it seems very difficult to live the law of attraction, with so many rules, guidelines, and things to do and follow. But in reality, it is very easy. So easy in fact, you are living the law of attraction everyday whether you know it or not, whether you recognize it or not, whether you believe in it or not. The reality is that the law of attraction is operating everyday on a regular basis. It is when you want to change something in your life that you have to “work” the law of attraction to be able to embark on the journey that you imagine.

For instance, if you are living in scarcity and want ot live in abundance, then you have to change your beliefs, change your thoughts, get in the zone to live in abundance, because currently your beliefs, your thoughts, your vibration are in a scarcity mode and that is what is creating the scarcity in your life. If you are already living the life of your dreams and embarking on the journey of a lifetime, then your beliefs and thoughts are aligned with the outcomes you want to achieve. We have to remember, we are perfectly aligned to get the results, the outcomes we are getting. If we want different outcomes, we have to have different inputs. It really is that simple.

The Vortex

Giving Back and Paying Forward:

Getting in the Zone


October 8

You are truly blessed in so many different ways. And you are already living the life that you have designed for yourself. In due time, you will understand all the trials and tribulations that you have gone through and why, in due time it will all fall into place for you. In the meantime, enjoy the blessings, count your successes and know that tomorrow will bring more blessings and more successes. As you give thanks for all that you have been given, for all that you have already received, you know that you are in a place of abundance and that the abundance is just a matter of how you define it. We are all wealthy in so many ways and the way to call more wealth to yourself is to just be wealthy and to just be grateful for all you have been blessed with.

In more concrete terms, the way to more wealth—material, spiritual, mental, physical, relationship wealth—is to give back and pay forward. When you start giving back, even when you have little to give, it shows up to the Universe that you have more than enough and you want more. The more you give, the more you receive…therefore by giving to the people who have helped you and causes that are near and dear to your heart you are sending strong vibes to the Universe that you are ready for me.

Paying it forward has the same effect. In paying it forward, no one but you knows what you have given, what you have done, or how you have helped. This is knowledge between you, your heart, and your soul. You do it because if feels good and you it is your soul’s calling. No thanks are needed, no accolades are forthcoming, no outward expression of gratitude is received. It is like performing magic. And in that moment of reconciliation, when someone says, “I wonder whose donation made this possible,”

Your spirit basks in the knowledge that good things have happened and no one needs to be the wiser. It is your best kept selfish secret. Because, you see, many of the folks the could not articulate what you are feeling just knowing that you were a part of this and
