Regardless of what life has thrown your way, never give up on your dreams. Never lose sight of the things that bring you joy, make you feel fulfilled and like you are making a positive difference! 

Following those passions give life meaning and purpose. 

True heart’s desires are the ones that cause you to stretch outside your comfort zone and grow in marvelous ways in order to manifest your desires. 

The Law of Attraction is most easily engaged when you know what you want and are willing to go after it. 

Have a beautiful day!

Every now and then a person needs to go on pilgrimage. Mine tend to be some sort of car excursion. But that certainly isn’t the only pilgrimage possible. Of course when you start out on a journey, you don’t necessarily know that you are going on a pilgrimage. If you are headed for some sacred […]

The Power of Words Conscious Language

The Power of Words Using Conscious Language

How many times have you set goals, visualized your desired outcome, created and repeated positive affirmations, and yet still not achieved what you had hoped? There are numerous potential causes for this.

Sometimes it’s simply a matter of WORDS.

Every sound you utter sends out an energy wave (or prayer) that aids in creating the world you experience. With every sentence you speak, you are literally improving or destroying your health, relationships, finances, and more.

The most powerful example I have ever heard about the use of conscious language – or actually the misuse of conscious language – was a story told to me directly by the woman who had the experience. This woman had developed an incurable disease of the eyes. She was quickly going blind, and it had gotten to the point where she could no longer read. Her physicians said there was nothing they could do.

Being very determined and not liking what she heard from the doctors, she turned to alternative therapies for a possible cure – something she would never have done had she not been in this desperate situation. A friend recommended she see someone that did crystal healing. She thought that sounded ridiculous but decided to give it a try.

During her appointment, the crystal healing therapist asked her to describe herself, her life, etc. and the therapist let her talk for about 10 minutes.

Suddenly, the therapist stopped her and said: “Did you know that in the last 10 minutes you said the words ‘I hate to see’ 15 times?”

The woman was shocked.

She used the words “I hate to see” before many things. “I hate to see the way the world is going.” “I hate to see how they are treating the children in schools.” On and on she made reference to “I hate to see” this or that.

This was literally an eye opening experience. She switched her words and improvements started almost immediately. She now has good vision.

How Many Words Do You Use that Destroy Your Ability to Achieve Your Desires?

NEVER NEVER NEVER say “I’m Sorry.”

Two of the most powerful words in the English language are the words

I AM.

These words tell every part of you – your personality, your subconscious, your ego, your spirit – who you are. They define WHO YOU ARE. Be very careful what you place behind those words.

When you say “I’m sorry,” you are saying that WHO YOU ARE is a sorry individual, someone who is worthless, despicable, and bad. Replace the words “I’m sorry” with “I apologize.”

Anyone who eliminates the words “I’m sorry” from their vocabulary will increase their self-esteem almost immediately!

The same goes for “I’m sick.” “I’m tired.” “I’m stupid.” – you get the idea. Replace those with “I feel ___” and eliminate the stupid comment altogether.

What Does Conscious Language Have to Do With Goal Achievement?

Another very important aspect of conscious language is the LAW OF FOCUS. What ever we place our attention on is what we create. It’s important to focus on the positive thing we desire rather than the negative thing we want to avoid. For example, never focus on NOT AGING. Focusing on not aging ensures that you will age . . . and quickly. Instead focus on being healthy, vibrant, and youthful.

An interesting and often overlooked part of all this is the need to avoid words that are negating a negative.

What the heck do I mean by that?

A word like LIMITLESS is actually drawing the subconscious mind to focus on LIMITS. This is NOT what we want. So saying something like LIMITLESS ABUNDANCE is placing limits on the abundance.

An example from my own life is the word EFFORTLESS.

In the past when I made affirmations, I would typically end them with the words “easy, effortless, and fun.” An example might be “Having a wonderful relationship is easy, effortless, and fun.”

This was actually drawing EFFORT into my life. Since I have eliminated that word and now only use “easy and fun” EVERYTHING has shifted. We sold our house in 2 weeks because it was “easy and fun.” – and there was no EFFORT involved. My former husband’s immigration process to the U.S. was taken care of in less than 2 months. There are many, many other examples of how this change in language has made things move very quickly and easily for me.

How Being Clairaudient and Clairsentient Can Greatly Assist You With Conscious Language

As I’ve said many times, every person has a gift, talent, or skill. We also all have the ability to see, hear, and/or sense subtle energy. When it comes to conscious language, two of these spiritual gifts or skills come in mighty handy.

The first is the ability to hear clairaudiently. When creating positive affirmations, the ability to hear your Higher Self and guides give you the “power words” you need to say out loud or even chant as a mantra is a very empowering thing. In fact, when words “come in” that way, they are often the most powerful words and insights you will ever encounter.

The other powerful skill, one of my super powers, is being clairsentient. The more you develop you inner knowing and your ability to feel energy, the easier it is to feel (knowing instantly) if a certain word or phrase is beneficial or detrimental. The second someone else says a word or phrase, I have instantaneous feedback in my own body about how it feels. Some words and phrases make me smile and think “wow, that’s empowering.”I can literally feel the energy (or power) rise up in the person when they state the phrase. Others make me want to recoil and run away at the level of detriment they cause.

The whole discussion above about “I’m sorry” comes from that place. I can literally feel how detrimental it is for so many people when they say that. It’s like they are standing there, maybe somewhat empowered, and then they say those words. I can feel their energy (power) instantly drop a whole lot of notches. It is a particularly bad phrase to say for someone having confidence, worthiness, or self-esteem issues. Women, in particular, tend to face that. There are a lot of reasons why that I won’t cover in this article.

I know that discussion flies in the face of a very popular set of words people say all day every day. Don’t get me wrong, Joe Vitale is a great guy. But those words are definitely not what I recommend. In fact, when I used to hear people talk about Honopono, I would immediately follow it up with “oh no!” It was my own little joke to diffuse the disharmonious energy I was feeling in my body.

My dear friend, Linda Shay, uses these words instead:
“Thank you.
I love you.
God bless you. (or whatever word resonates)
We are One.”

From a conscious language perspective, those are infinitely better. Instead of “God bless you,” I would probably say “Bless you” which gives you the power to bless. That in itself is a great way to become more empowered.

Being able to feel (in your own body) the benefit or detriment of something is imperative when you are on a conscious spiritual path or just trying to live life. It is how you know which teachers and teachings to follow, what things to believe, what things to avoid (including food, alternative healing methods, supplements, people, situations), and so much more. That’s the reason I so highly recommend people learn pendulum dowsing. It is the fastest way I’ve ever come across to fine-tune and enhance your intuition, your ability to “know,” and to get in tune with the feeling body that is one of your greatest spiritual instruments.

Review your own affirmations and the words you say out loud or just to yourself and see how positive you are actually being.

It definitely makes a difference!

Blessings,

How to Manifest Your Desires

 

How to Manifest Your Desires

When learning how to manifest your desires, NEVER get hung up on how the goal arrives, what it looks like in the end, the “how” of the way it should come into fruition.

I have the perfect example to share.

I’ve been wanting to take another cross country trip so I can stop in Austin and see one of my dearest friends. She lived in Santa Fe when I lived there. Even though I’ve been back to Santa Fe several times since moving to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, since she no longer lives there, we haven’t managed to see one another in about 5 years.

But the truth is, I don’t really care about the trip. What I’ve said out loud a few times (over the past several months with great clarity) is “I simply must see Maya.”
 
Her life is so busy that we rarely even get to talk by phone. We text sometimes and once every 3 or 4 months we share a precious hour-long phone call. But because of how her life tends to be vs how I make my hours and can easily carve out time for friends, I was operating under the assumption that if I wanted to see her, then I had to be the one to figure out a way to make it happen – meaning how to get me to where she is.
 
She texted me the other day and said her son is working in upstate NY as a camp counselor and she was picking him up in August. She wanted to stop by for a day or two on the way back to Austin. Gotta love it!
 
Then, she sent another message yesterday that plans had changed. Her son wants to stay for a few days longer with friends he’s made who live up there. But the friends have no place to store his luggage. He can only stay if he doesn’t have his luggage. She volunteered to pick up his luggage and then come to see me for several days while he hangs out with his new friends. Then, he can get on a bus or train and meet her at my house. Love it even more!

So, from the comfort of my own home, the people I’ve wanted to see for ages are showing up at my front door. First, my friend David (someone else I’ve been saying I wanted to see) called one day last week and showed up the same day (he’s a Canadian who grew up in London, has a lovely British accent, and spends most of his time globe trotting). And now Maya is coming …

Instead of focusing on the trip I thought was required to make it happen, I was focused on what really mattered to me … to see my friend. The Universe rearranged itself and voila things are popping into my reality that I desire.

Instead of focusing on business schemes and the “how to’s” of everything, which of course I obviously have to also focus on to some extent, I spend more time focused on raising my vibration, expanding my consciousness and awareness, and embody what I call the Noble C’s (calm, clear, confident, and Divinely connected).
When learning how to manifest your desires focus on the “right” things and the things you desire seem to magically fall into place. Working on yourself isn’t always easy, but boy is it worth it!
Have a magnificent day,

Summer Solstice, Energies of Manifestation, and Cultivating Your Dreams

Summer Solstice Medicine Wheel

 

Ah, glorious summer!  For many, it is a time of joy,

For me, it is a time of joy, sunshine, water, and outdoor activities.

Having spent grade school in Texas, a few years in Southern California, and 10 years in New Mexico, I adore the sun and the warmth and activity of the summer. I prefer it to all other seasons. Although I really do love it in the spring when everything seems to come back to life and begins to bloom.

In the turning of the wheel … represented by the image (above) of a 9-Fires Medicine Wheel we built in Santa Fe, NM several years ago … summer is the time of activity.

In the spring we planted.  In the garden, we planted vegetables, herbs, and flowers. In our lives, we planted ideas and things we desire to manifest.

The summer season is our opportunity to work to assist those things in growing. Read more

Manifesting Law of Attraction Creating Your Reality

Manifesting Law of Attraction Creating Your Reality

In the various Manifestating classes and masterminds I lead, I share many tools, techniques, guided meditations, and ways to heal inner issues in order to harness the Law of Attraction and create the reality you desire. 

Some people on a spiritual path go into a state of simply allowing, simply accepting whatever is and whatever comes without having any desires. There is tranquility and peace in acceptance and allowing. And as someone who was once under great stress in the corporate world, I can truly appreciate having joy and peace as the only goal.  Read more
