Making your dreams a reality!

“Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.”

Napoleon Hill


Creative inspiration surrounds you on a daily basis.  It comes to you through nature, through your interactions with others, or through studying those who have gone before.  To take advantage of the inspiration and allow your creative genius to unfold, you need to set out a plan.  When you put pen to paper and capture the creative thought process as it is conceived, the path to discovery becomes crystal clear.  When you take the time to set out your heart’s greatest desires in a concrete way, you outline the necessary steps needed to get to where you want to go. Carry around a notebook to capture the ideas that come at you from out of the blue.  Write down on your hand inspirational concepts that get you excited to be alive.  Sketch ideas anywhere you can to take a snapshot of a scene from your imagination. Then, you have given form to something that was previously just a part of your dreams.  Then, you have taken the steps needed to go to the next level.  Get ready. These ideas will come to you when you are relaxed on a routine drive to work, are refreshed as you let the water wash over you in the shower or are enlightened during a guided meditation.  With something close by to jot down your inspirations, you will remember to memorialize these ideas to further review at a later time. Giving concrete form to what was once intangible, you become vital part of making these ideas become a beautiful new reality that will give you a lifetime of fulfillment and joy.

Enlighten up!

 “If you make a strong commitment to yourself, you make it clear that you will use all the courage it takes to live your truth.  You make it clear that you want to live in unity and in love and in joy that naturally follows all these things.”

 Barbel Mohr, The Cosmic Ordering Service

If you always give your energy away, you will be left depleted without the ability to recharge your batteries. While serving others brings with it great joy, if you do not take care of yourself, you will be left with nothing to give. One of the greatest acts of self-love is when you make a strong commitment to your true self. With this commitment, you choose to surround yourself with uplifting messages so that your spirit is nurtured. You choose to get enough rest so that your mind stays clear. You choose to get the proper nutrition and exercise so that your body can function efficiently. And you choose to honor your intuition so that you stay aligned with your purpose here on Earth. In a world where there are a lot of demands, it takes a lot of courage to make the choice to put your self first. While there are instances where sacrifice is a commendable virtue, in general, the martyr complex does not add to a life of unity, love and joy. By daily deciding to strongly commit to your own wellness, you make a conscious choice to strive to live a life in harmony with your surroundings. Only then will you be able to nurture your heart light on the inside, as the world watches you enlighten up on the outside.

Follow the cheerful ones!

“The cheerful live longest in years, and afterwards in our regards. Cheerfulness is the offshoot of goodness.”

Christian Nestell Bovee


Looking for a little cheer today, seek out those people who will bring a little more sunshine into your life. You will be amazed how being surrounded with positive people can make your life even more worth living. Ever notice how you feel when you are with a person who embodies a glass half full kind of attitude. When you are with them, you get an energy boost that can lift you up to believe in all kinds of possibilities. Your enthusiasm for life increases. And, your ability to embrace a world full of magic and miracles multiplies. When you are around people of good cheer, life just feels better. And after you leave their company, you may be more inclined to share a simple smile with a stranger. You may be more inclined to take in the beauty of your surroundings. You may be more inclined to stand up confidently, chest out, heart ready to experience love. Life certainly can be challenging at times, so if you can’t share a smile of your own, seek out those who can share one with you. Before long, the cheerfulness and optimism that is shared with you will encourage you to follow your own bliss and pass on the love. And in the end, you will always remember with gratitude the goodness that was shared and certainly be empowered to continue with this sentiment. For if the cheerful live longest in years, that is something that you can hope will be contagious for as long as you live!

Hold on to your dreams!

“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”

Paulo Coelho

 If you are a dreamer, there is always something that you have wanted very much to do, be, or have for a long time. However, there are times in life when you feel like you are just floating along without direction wondering why your hopes and desires are at a standstill.  Perhaps, you are weighed down by past patterns just wishing to be released from their very determined grip.  Or your fears are taking a mental toll on your internal view of possibilities. When you are holding onto the stuff that does not serve you well, you need to stop and make a choice to consciously exchange your negative thoughts to for those that will allow for all the wonderful things that life has in store. You will feel the shift when you do. You need to have faith that when you receive love in your heart for the ability to dream, this energy will magnify out as you make your request to the universe. When you are stuck in an illusion that does not serve your highest good, allow yourself to let go one moment at a time knowing that everything is giving you clues that will help you solve the mysteries in life allowing you to move on to greater things. When you trust this, hold on to your dreams and take inspired action to see them through, know for sure that the universe will conspire in your favor.  And as you navigate your way through life’s journey, you will rejoice as signs appear as a testament to your belief that you are moving in the right direction.

The Magic of the Absolutely Ridiculous!

“No matter where you are camped, there are blessings and miracles nearby. . . Once you begin to use your laser superpowers for possibilities, miracles, and joy, you will suddenly find yourself on a whole new stage, accepting a whole new Oscar.”
Pam Grout

You have superpowers. While this may seem ridiculous to say, it is the truth if you believe it. The power that you have by virtue of the way you think is beyond amazing. You have the ability to alter a stressful situation by infusing love with a generous serving of laughter. It has been shown that you even have the power to change relationships by virtue of seeing the other person as a loving ally rather than an enemy. Yes, it’s true, you are an amazing you! It just may take a little imagination to get your head into the game of outrageous fun. But perhaps today is the day when you decide that you no longer want the struggle for it is time to play. Put on your tiara or your superhero cape and get ready to infuse a bit of silliness into your world. You will be more than surprised at the magic and miracles you will discover when you do. Your life is important so stop being so serious and grab that wand and set your zaniest wishes out into the universe. And if visualization is your thing, see yourself speaking words of glory as you parade across the stage of life to accept whatever prize you desire for adding to the blessings of possibility today. For wouldn’t you rather use your superpowers to discover the magic of the ridiculous rather than walk numb in the land of the boring? Once again, it’s your choice anyway!IMG_4485.JPG

Color your world magnificent!

 “When you walk up to opportunities door, don’t knock it . . . Kick that b#$@%h in, smile and introduce yourself.”

Dwayne Johnson

 

It’s time to go out and make your own opportunities.  It’s time to be the designer of your own life.  Take that canvas and paintbrush and splatter it with your imagination. Color it with magnificent purple to awaken insight.  Color it with robust red to enliven the passion in your soul.  Color it with peaceful blue to calm your spirit.  Or color it with anything that speaks to you. It doesn’t matter which you choose as long as you choose.  Life is happening all around you. Stop wasting precious time complaining and start creating something amazing. Go for it! Get outside and connect with nature, discover new adventures, or take your everyday routine and throw in the element of surprise.  Start to think differently if you want to see change happen. One day at a time, go out with your adventurous eyes and challenge yourself to see the world a little differently. Don’t forget to take your daring self with you and craft the kind of destiny you wish to see. It’s time to wake up to the wonderful that awaits you. Rise up and state confidently to the world that you are here ready for whatever it throws your way! Get ready to break down barriers and to receive all the abundance that is meant for you! Each and everyday brings with it new opportunities, forget about knocking, make an entrance, smile and introduce yourself. Remember when you take inspired action, something wonderful is always waiting on the other side. Get off your couch, do something amazing with your canvas by coloring your world magnificent.

Something greater awaits you- trust that!

“You are a process.  The universe is a process.  Everything around you is a process. Be in touch with that process and trust it.  Trust the unfolding of your life and see what you have to learn from that.”


Ann Wilson Schaff, PH.D.
 


 Life is a process that unfolds before you. It is how you approach the process that dictates the experience and that is why trust is so important.  While trust itself is defined as an assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something, it can be an incredibly dualistic concept.  On the one hand, to trust in life can be seen as a challenge when you struggle to surrender control.  And, on the other, to trust in life can be felt as a breath of fresh air as you ultimately release into a freedom that brings great peace.  When you become aware that you are a part of something greater than yourself, then both the struggle and the release have a purpose in the grand scheme of things.  If you become aware and trust that the unfolding of our life events are happening for a reason that will contribute to the lesson that is your life process, then you can stop fighting what happens and truly begin to enjoy the ride.  You then won’t miss out on all that is good because your focus shifts. Remember, there is always the possibility that greater magic and miracles are awaiting you right around the corner.  Really the magic is still there just waiting to be discovered by you to help you grow to greater heights.  So just trust the process and then you hold the key to that something greater that will set your spirit free!

Trust your choices and the beauty will unfold!

“Since every choice is a fork in the road, each decision brings with it new hope and promise.”

Richard Carlson, PhD

In every moment of life, you get to make choices. Look at this as a very good thing. With each decision, you are empowered to take in whatever information is available and wisely set a course in the direction of your dreams. While some choices may appear to be big ones and some may seem small, each holds an importance that could alter the trajectory of your path and bring new hope and promise. Using your six sense as guide, you can be confident that when you choose what you will create, everything little thing will ultimately be alright. When you decide to live consciously, you become focused, you become aware and you become ready for any challenge. So when you come to that fork in the road and it is time to choose, with clarity of what you want most in life, you can believe strongly that whatever you elect will bring beauty to your world. When you look at your life as if you are the director in your own play, you can greet whatever scene that follows with enthusiasm and grace. So as you start each new act on your journey, keep in mind that the ability to choose will enable you to align your spirit to that purpose that drives your soul. And this state of mind is a great way to embolden a beautiful life! Happy decision making!

What is your motivation?

What is your motivation?

“. . . If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.”                                                                               Mother Theresa

What is your motivation in life? If your motivation is focused on the good, then your energy will follow. When you can choose to act out of love, let your energy be love. When you set out to do good deeds, let your service be founded in joy. When you set out to create your life, let your hope be that it reflects the best of you. No matter what anyone else says, you will notice that when you bring a high vibration of love, joy and hope to your days, your whole life experience can change in an instant. While it is easy to act in a loving way when you are excited about your daily adventure, when you feel forced it is a different story. When this happens, set your intention to doing good anyway. Take a deep breath and set your mantra to love. With this motivation, you will be amazed at how effortless and enjoyable your responsibilities can be. For before you know it, your experiences that were once obligations will transform into wonderful opportunities to experience moments, people and places like never before. Do not worry how the world may see you. With a motivation guided by positive intentions based in love, you can hold your head high knowing that you have done your best. And in the end, this is all that ever counted anyway!
