What is Your Great Vision?

Having a vision, a goal, and staying focused on it is one of the most powerful creation tools we can use when we want to proactive create our lives. Our minds are incredible.

Our imagination is a tool that we can use to create anything in our lives! Being able to visualize and actually see and feel yourself experiencing a better life will help you to bring it into reality. Our thoughts are charged with a frequency that we send out into the quantum field and that brings into our life that same experience. Anything is possible when you understand how to work with the spiritual laws of the Universe!

We are energy magnets creating our lives all the time. We have the power to choose our thoughts. That is the key to manifesting what you desire. Your vision is you placing an order with the Universe. And the more often you can see yourself there with the strong feelings of it being real, the more powerful your dream will become, and the sooner it will come into being. However, it is important to release any expectation of time and allow it to happen in the perfect time.

This is why visualization is such a powerful tool for us. Seeing things in our minds helps us to believe it is possible and it is proven that the brain cannot tell the difference between imagination and reality. Then we must take the next step and truly believe that it will come to pass (faith). After that, we must release it and trust that it will come to us in the right time (acceptance and allowing).

As soon as we put an expectation of time onto a desire, we can set ourselves up for disappointment or discouragement—that’s when we are lacking in patience and higher understanding. Know that everything will resolve itself one way or another. And believe in that immense power that we all have within.

Even in my biggest moments of doubt when I was separated from my family for so many years, I meditated and continued to see myself going home—the answer I kept getting was that I was going home.

I held onto that vision and believed in it with all of my heart. But I had to learn to let go of time and of any expectations. It had to happen in its own time. This was a hard lesson to learn. Acceptance of this certainly came in handy during that time and now is one of the ways I can manage my life now.

My question to you is: what is your great vision now? What dreams are waiting to become your reality?

5 Ways to Get The Best Out of the Next Year

Girl jumps to the New Year 2017 at sunset.
In these hectic days of busy-ness, the best present you can give to yourself is to take a little time to evaluate your life. If we don’t do this regularly, time will disappear and before you know it, years have gone by and you’ll wonder where it went. Rather than allowing your life to slip through the sands of time, take a little time on a regular basis to evaluate where you’ve been and where you want to go.

Personally, I generally do the following activities at the New Year, my birthday (which is in March), and at the end of summer when I’m gearing up to finish the year. I recommend at the very minimum, annually, but quarterly or even monthly is great.

Here are some simple ways that you can keep your life on track moving forward towards the experiences you want to have. Take out a piece of paper or better yet, write this down in a journal so you can come back to it in the future to reflect back.

1. Write down your top goals that you want to accomplish in the next 12 months. Just the act of putting it down on paper makes it more concrete and the odds of these things happening increase dramatically. In fact, only 3% of people actually write down their goals and according to a study of Harvard students, that 3% will make ten times more than the other 97% put together!

2. Write down how you want to FEEL in the coming months. Get in touch with the emotions and feelings you want to have as your dominate feelings. Whether it is love, happiness, joy, abundance, peace, fun, excitement, passion, or whatever is important to you, bringing this awareness to how you are feeling is going to keep you on track of situations that are in line with these feelings—nor even more importantly, situations that are NOT in alignment with these core emotions.

3. Write down what experiences you want to have. Be specific, dream big, bring fun into this. What are the things you’re dreaming about doing in your life. There is absolutely no time better than NOW to start experiencing it. Life is about living…not settling or waiting until the time is right or you have enough money/time/freedom/ability/insert your reasons here to make it happen. The dynamic about creating your life is that you need to be clear and specific about you want, set the intention to make it happen, and then guess what? It has a much higher likelihood of happening!

4. Write down how you want to give back in your life. The key to bring joy into your life and creating the life you want to live is directly tied into how you want to give back. Your ability to receive grows as you give. And as you give, you help others feel good which in turn makes you feel good too. The more interactive this is, the better. Although it is nice to write a check to your favorite charity, it doesn’t have nearly the positive impact energetically on you versus going down to the local soup kitchen and helping to feed the homeless during the holidays or reading for children at the local library. These are just examples—come up with what feels right for you.

5. Write down how you are going to take care of yourself and get committed. We only have one body and it is important to take care of it. So whether that means eating healthier foods, getting regular exercise, sleeping better, having more fun, nurturing relationships more, think about how you can take care of yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Often people think it is selfish to put yourself before others but in fact, it is the exact opposite. When you take good care of yourself, you have more to give to others.

When you take good care of yourself, you have more to give to others.

dream big, set goals, take action - inspirational handwriting on a napkin with a cup of coffee

Once you’ve written these 5 ways to get the most out of the coming year, think about all you’ve accomplished, and how far you’ve come so far. Celebrate your progress and know that you are getting in the driver’s seat of your life. You become empowered when you stop and take a little time for this reflection. And dream about how you want to experience your life. Because everything that we can imagine and dream about, we can bring into our experiences if we stay focused, determined, committed, and loving the path we’ve chosen to take. Good luck and here’s to making your dream life come true!

Global Meditation For The US Elections

If you’ve been following me for any time, you know that I am all about choosing love over fear. In the last several months, I’ve been concerned about the about of fear and negativity that is being projected. This coming week are the US elections. Now I really don’t care what your political beliefs are, nor am I interested in sharing mine. What I am interested in sharing is that collectively, regardless of where you are in the world, we can come together as one and focus on bringing peace to the world.

I believe what we have been witnessing is a mass awakening to the corruption and fear that has driven our world systems for far too long. And I believe that humanity as a whole is sick and tired of living that way. I do not believe we were born to live miserable lives and I know that each and every one of us has an inner core of strength, courage and love.

So I am asking you to help us shift the world–together. Because I don’t think it can happen any other way and especially not if we are divided and separated. There are almost 7.5 Billion people on the planet right now (7.462 B to be more exact), and the vast majority of people just want to have four basic things: love, peace, joy and abundance. That’s it! So why can’t we accomplish this? I believe we can when we finally, finally come together a one human race, caring for the whole planet and all living beings.

I want to invite you to join on a global mass meditation on Sun Nov 6th. You can watch this two min video to get the details. This is not a politically motivated video, it’s a peace motivated one, to help lift up the energy around the US elections, since it is going to have an impact on everyone around the world.

It’s time to end the madness of hatred, fear, separation, and scarcity and come together to bring peace on this beautiful planet we call home.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, for being a part of my tribe, and for wanting to make a positive difference in the world. We can do this!

Much love and peace!

P.S. If you’re reading this after Nov 6th, you can still help by keeping the vision for peace strong inside of your heart. You can read The Earth Manifesto as a guide as well.

Why Small Moments Matter

Reading up on the latest future trends and technologies, I can sometimes geek out. I’m fascinated to know what might be coming. We have entered a phase of accelerated change—things are going to happen so quickly and I do believe that many of the new technologies will be able to transform our world. The big key to all of this is to find your own inner peace and joy.

In all that I do, I have a core message that is simply choose love over fear. If you can live each day focusing on those small moments, looking for joy and all that is going well, you’ll find that at the end of the day, you can string these moments throughout the day (often bridging over the challenges and negativity) to realize that it was a pretty good day. And doing this every day means your weeks turn out pretty good, and in the end, chances are you’ll live a pretty darn good life!

This is a way of practicing gratitude very consciously.

A concept I share regularly with others is that you need to watch closely what you “feed your brain.” It’s so easy these days to get bombarded with negativity. You really have to make an effort to counter balance all the negativity with a lot of positive information. One of my latest favorite tricks (especially on my Facebook feed) is looking at awe-inspiring images. I’ve liked several pages that just post amazing pictures so my newsfeed is filled with beautiful pictures. And it makes me feel joy!

Appreciation is one of the fastest ways to feel better too. Whether you are showing gratitude to others or for those small moments, it shifts your way of looking at the world. You see things from a more positive light. I’m not saying it’s always easy. It’s very similar to a muscle that needs to be trained. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. So make that conscious choice each and every day.

The last thing I’d like to share is how you can keep your own peace. Just imagine the eye of the storm. It’s always calm and lovely while there’s a raging storm going on all around. Be that eye of the storm in your life. Make that choice! Learn to not go into knee-jerk reactions but rather, put a pause in, a space, where you can choose exactly how you want to respond. You can do this through taking three deep breathes before saying anything, taking a walk, being very mindful and be aware of your emotions. Don’t let things get to you, keep that peace inside of you and you will be a positive force to be reckoned with that will help to calm others as well. I promise that!

There are so many tricks we can use to consciously work on gratitude. What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear about them.

You’re More Powerful Than You Know!

SuperheroWe tend to downplay all the we do. But the reality is that we as humans are much more powerful than we realize.

Your thoughts cause you to have emotions, which sends out a frequency to try and find that experience for you. I recently watched a video that showed a women being cured of cancer in a matter of minutes through a Chinese method of energy healing. The tumor in her bladder literally disappeared in minutes because these Chinese medicine men understood the power of chi (which is the Chinese word/concept of the life force within all living matter).BrainNeuron

What I find so fascinating by this is that once we see it with our eyes, it becomes believable. These men were tapping into the chi energy with the statement that her healing and well being was ALREADY done.

How many of us have goals or dreams that we want to experience and we often say “someday I’ll do/have/be that”? The fact of the matter is that our words are powerful and they create. Cymantics, the study of sound, is now making the invisible visible and showing that each sound has a certain frequency that creates its own pattern.

It is so important to understand that you need to use your words wisely. And the more emotionally charged you state something, the more powerful it is. Best-selling author and expert Gregg Braden calls this the Technology of Emotion.

Therefore, when you burst out in anger or frustration, beware of what you are saying because you are just calling that experience into your life that much faster. The same however, is true for passionate and emotional statements of love and joy. And these you should use as much as possible! Because it will bring those experiences into your life quicker that you’ll think possible.

When we are conditioned to see the world in a certain way, it is sometimes hard to break through that though process or patterns. But if you can decide you want to play around a bit and make a game of it, and you make conscious decisions to experiment, then you can see how it will work. It takes the “performance pressure” off of you and then you can just have fun with it.

You can play around with getting parking spaces (which I always get fantastic places!) and making sure you find what you want when you go into a store. I’d love to hear from you…how you are using words and emotions to change things for the better in your life?
