Will Prosperity Make Me Be Happy?

There are many words used to define Prosperity.

Some can be found in as including: A successful, flourishing, or thriving condition, especially in financial respects; I suspect that this is the one most often used: Financial respects.


But there are also Other words used as synonyms. These include Abundance, Success, Well-being, Ease, Good, Blessing, Accomplishment, Plentifulness, Godsend and Happiness.

Ernest Homes, in the Science of Mind textbook (page 54) includes in this definition of prosperity the concept of “Truth.” In discussing how to use this philosophy, he concludes that “The practice of the Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us, with the conscious knowledge that ‘The law of the Lord is perfect.’”

In my own interpretation of this philosophy, Prosperity and Truth are synonymous in knowing that there is a Power and Presence for Good in the Universe and that we can use it. Indeed, if one were to think about it, that there is a Power and Presence for Good in the Universe and that we can use it, I submit that this statement is  what many would consider to be the definition of prosperity.

This concept of prosperity, of Truth and of there being a power and presence for good in the Universe at our disposal is no stranger to human existence. For example, in the book of Mark it is stated:

Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].


If Thomas Troward were to chime in,  he might define prosperity as the alignment of thought and the physical so as to mold the primordial ooze of creation into that which we most cherish in our existence.

If we were to include Abraham-Hicks we might say that prosperity is the process of focusing one’s attention on what one wants as opposed to what one does not want based on the realizations gleaned from that process of contrast in our existence so as to allow one’s rockets of desires to explode into the law of attraction and to rain down upon us the Good that results from such desires. In other words, Ask and it is given.

While there is no specific reference in the Science of Mind index for the word “prosperity”, Holmes includes in his glossary (page 622) the following definition: “Prosperity is the out-picturing of substance in our affairs.” He explains it this way: “Everything in the Universe is for us. Nothing is against us.” And as a practical guide, he sets forth that We must know that everywhere we go we meet friendship, love, human interest and helpfulness. Life is ever giving of itself. We must receive, utilize and extend the gift. Success and prosperity are spiritual attributes belonging to all people (although) not necessarily used by all people.

In the Science of Mind philosophy, we teach that there is only One: One Spirit, One All that Is, One Greater Consciousness and that Consciousness is God. Further, we teach that our existence on this plane stems from Spirit’s out-picturing of life in, as and through our experience. But at the same time, we teach that, although there is only one consciousness, each of us is an individual expression of that consciousness, that it is our free will and experience of the contrasts in life that determine our focus, and that the Law (through the use of the Law of Attraction), which, as a completely neutral giver of desires, gives us an abundance of those things we desire to have in our lives.

That means that we, as part of that greater consciousness, (which Holmes also calls God-Consciousness)have the power to create our experience. And it is generally created abundantly in our experience.

A friend of mine once told me that she was walking her dog while in a really crappy mood and, in its ever neutral declaration of “you want it, you got it” she ending up stepping in a pile of the same Crap that had been her mood, except this time it was in physical form.

And if that was not proof enough of the Universe’s reaction to our desires, the very next time she went out, she happened to be in a great mood, feeling abundance in all its forms and there appeared a $20.00 bill in her path.

Think about it. Haven’t you had the same or similar experiences in your own life?

Okay, how many of use have been in a bitch session? It’s like a magnet sometimes. One person complains about something and then someone else complains and before you know it everyone is letting loose with disparaging remarks. I guess one could say that the comments were flying in an abundant manner and the negativity was living a very prosperous life, yes?


How about this one: You are having a meeting with the same group that just finished the bitch session only this time it is a brain storming session. Idea after idea pops into your head and everyone is just amazed at all of the ideas you are coming up with. Are you having a creatively prosperous experience?

Now let’s look at a longer term experience. We have all had the experience of making the same mistake over and over because of some almost pre-programed-like behavior that we have not realized is attracting it to us over and over again. I guess one could call that an abundantly prosperous opportunity to learn how to recognize that we need to walk a different path. Hmmm. Does that mean there are more types of prosperity than the dictionary would have us believe? Does Prosperity always have to carry a positive or negative tone? Just giving you some food for thought.

In the Science of Mind philosophy we use terms like First Cause, Law, Manifestation, Lack and Limitation and its opposite, Limitless Possibilities. We use processes like Affirmative Prayer to help us focus on those wants, desires and aspirations that we want to manifest and experience in our lives. We use them to change conditions, to provide an outlet for gratefully acknowledging our wants and desires, to become prosperous in what we have treated for.

We use Meditation to clear our minds of the everyday chatter that keeps us from consciously connecting with our God- Consciousness, and then to help us see and know the Truth of our existence. And once we have reached that calm knowing of our Truth, that we are each an individual part of that God-Consciousness and that we have the power and presence of the Universe within us to bring about our Good, we realize that we do, indeed live a prosperous existence.


So now, let’s get to the nitty gritty. What is prosperity on an individual level and how do we attain it? Personally I believe that the definition of Prosperity is personal to the individual. Some may give it a meaning of more money or toys, others may talk in terms of an abundance of creativity, still others may define being prosperous as being surrounded by family and friends. For me, it connotes all of the above.

I am prosperous in knowing that my next meal is secure, that I have gas in my tank and some spending money in my pocket. I am living a financially prosperous life.

If I am given an outlet where I can let my creative side explore the infinite possibilities that exist in the Universe I am living a creatively prosperous life.

Having someone special in my life and add to it a few good friends to spend time laughing and doing things, I am prosperous in my relationships.

And if I am able to devote time to my spiritual practice through reading, taking classes, writing down my thoughts and connecting to that God-Consciousness on a deeper level through meditation, I am truly living a blessed and abundantly prosperous experience of life.

When it comes down to it, Prosperity, in all of its forms, leads to what I consider the ultimate goal in life: That of experiencing more, of becoming greater today than I was yesterday through all of these forms of giving and receiving, but especially by satisfying that inbred desire of living each day, each moment, each second of now in that self-realization of oneness, and of knowing that I can create my experience by living in conscious awareness of the Power and Presence of Good and that not only it is available to me to use in my life, but that it broadens me while adding, in a positive way, To that God-consciousness from which I come, in which I share and in which I create.


Can prosperity make me happy? What do you think?

Your Life is Not some Quote from a Book

Every Guru has a description of life and how to make it better. That may all be well and good for their life, but it may not have any application in yours or mine. Yes, I know I am my father’s son and you may be your daughter’s mother, but what the heck is that supposed to do to help you move forward in life? Yes, life can be like a bowl of cherries and some things always come up smelling like roses, but again, how does that apply to you or me?

How many books are we supposed to read that tell us how the principals of life are to eat better, get more sleep, do what you love, be more outgoing, blah, blah, blah. Better yet, how many seminars are we supposed to attend where they tell us that this is the first day of the rest of our lives, or we get as much out of it as we put into it? But we go, hoping to find the secret that has been evading us, seemingly all our lives.

But you know what? Quotes are great openers. They can get us thinking, they can even get us motivated to do something. But what? If I want to figure out what would make me feel happy, fulfilled or successful, I don’t think some quote is going to get me there. Take this one that has been attributed to Albert Einstein as well as others: “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” That’s a great saying; Humorous, thought provoking even reassuring that not everyone can climb a tree or perform tasks like others. But what does it say about me? I don’t want to climb trees for a living and I am not sure what I want to do at this point in my life. I don’t think a book that tells me how to eat right and get more energy is going to do it and I certainly don’t want to go to some seminar where all they do is tell everyone how wonderful they are for a price.

I don’t pretend to know your answer. I certainly don’t know what you are good at or what you would find yourself being passionate about. But I can offer some suggestions on figuring it out. Perhaps the best way to do this is to ask you to practice some techniques geared to helping you find your answer.

The first technique you may find difficult at first. You may think it weird or too “woo, woo”. But I can attest to its benefits as can millions of others who have tried it. Simply put, it’s a way of quieting the mind from all of the daily distractions that you may face that tend to keep you from focusing on what you really want out of life.

It’s called meditation.

No, I am not asking you to climb a mountain and sit on a cushion in some cave, although if that is your thing who am I to say otherwise? Simply put, I am asking you to trust that, if you follow the directions (which you can also find them in my book,” It’s All About Me”–I know, shameless plug), you may find yourself thinking more clearly about what direction you want to take in life. If not, hey at least you tried something different and gained some experience. I’m willing to bet through that you will find it hugely beneficial.

The location for this need not be anywhere special but it will need to be somewhere quiet and free from distraction. It can be in your bedroom or on your living room couch. It can be in your backyard or in a neighborhood park. Once you find your place, get into a comfortable, seated position and set a timer for 15 minutes. It may also be helpful to tape yourself (or someone else) reading the following to play back for future meditations until you have the directions down.

Sit up straight but relaxed and close your eyes. Take a long, deep breath through your nose and hold it for a second or two before letting it out. Feel the tension in your body leave as you exhale. Take another deep breath, hold it and let it out, again focusing on how easily the muscles of your body relax. Do this one more time and feel the difference in yourself compared to when you started.

Keeping your eyes closed, breathe normally and focus on the air as it enters and exits your body. Notice the rise and fall of your chest as the air moves in and out. If you find that you have random thoughts floating into your mind (disrupting your focused breathing) just acknowledge them and let them go while returning to the focus of the rise and fall of your chest. Stay focused on the rise and fall of your chest and allow your mind to empty of all else, thus keeping your mind open.

The Universe contains endless possibilities for your future. While you are the one behind the wheel, (thereby making it your responsibility to steer the direction of your life) the act of opening your mind to these endless possibilities will allow you to feel the direction of the wind (or river if you prefer to use a rudder for steering) and to ease into the flow of your good. The whole purpose is to allow you to experience the noiseless inspiration of possibility. It may take a little getting used to but once you have become comfortable meditating, you will find your stress level lessen, your creative juices flowing and life’s possibilities becoming more noticeable.

It is very easy to allow one’s self to become used to the noise and general busy-ness that is ever present in our lives. Between the television, the radio, the internet, traffic, crowds and so forth, we become conditioned to distraction. Meditation is one way of bringing yourself in line with who you really are without having to fight the uphill battle of everything that you find yourself allowing to get in the way.

Try it. I think you will like it. Then come back and we’ll talk about some other tools that will also help lead you to a better, happier, more fulfilling and successful life.

All good things to you!


Surviving the Beast

Did you survive the beast? Did you take a look at your past and how it lead you to where you are today? Did you notice those things about your past that have recurred to the point of your head spinning? Good!

Your past is important. It is what has molded you into who you are today. Every conversation, every thought, every interaction with another, everything you have perceived through any of your senses, everything.

Applying your past to your present you will, if you are attentive, recognize a dichotomy. One one hand, your thoughts and perceptions become a slave to your past. You have, no doubt, encountered the FEAR of trying something new. A very common example is trying to get up and speak before an audience. If things did not go well in a past experience, or if you perceived someone’s words as doubting your abilities, your heart will pump out of your chest, you will sweat and stutter, your mind may go blank. Just the thought of getting up in front of people becomes the most frightening thought you can have. But really all that is happening is what I like to call your Ego protecting you from reliving the hurt of that past experience; from having to “face the beast.” Your Ego will pull out all the stops to try and save you from “the beast.”

On the other hand, your past experiences, if you apply the lessons you have learned and recognize your innate desire to be safe from “the beast,” can allow you to explore the new and exciting, to recognize that you bring something of substance to this world and that there is no end to the possibilities. Which one do you see in yourself? How limiting is your “beast?”

So, let’s take a look at your past in a constructive way and see if you can get past the Ego’s limitations. Get out a notebook and something to write with. Make sure there is room in the notebook for future entries as well. Also, because I have no idea of where you are in your past (whether you recognize the difference between learning from it and living from it yet) we will start with the basics of just making a list. We will call this “My List of Positives.” Quite simply, write a list of things that you know are good about you. Things you like to do, places you like to go, things that people come to you for help with, things you know you are good at. (I am, apparently, very good at ending sentences with prepositions. Lol.)

You do not have to have the list completed in the next ten minutes. Take your time, mull it over. Take your notebook with you this week. There will be, no doubt, times when you will say: “Oh yeah. I like doing _________ or I am good at _________, or wow! People really do come to me to help with __________.” You can fill in the blanks. And if you decide that something on your list really does not belong there, cross it out. This is your List of Positives and no-one else’s.

Bring the notebook with you for the next entry and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am here to help you move forward to where you would like to be.


You can be, do and have anything if you will allow it into your life.

How Big is Your “But”

Fear can be overwhelming. It can leave you shaken and immovable. It is sly, deceiving and damning all at the same time.

So when was the last time you had this great idea that took you into a whirlwind of excitement? Did you act on that idea or, after the excitement calmed, allowed that all too familiar “but” to dissuade you from action? What did the “But” sound like? Not enough time to get it all done? (Like that doesn’t apply with what you are doing anyway.) Not enough know how? (And yet the computer and other sources are at your fingertips.) Can’t afford to go whole hog on the idea? (Yet you have room in your budget for many other things.)

What we are really talking about is FEAR.

FEAR comes from the need for self-preservation. You know, avoiding being eaten by the beast. Yes, I know, it’s been a long time since those days (unless you happen to be a lion tamer or something) but the instinct is there nevertheless. And it doesn’t mean that there is no longer a beast! Paying bills, holding down a job and caring for family and all of the “stuff” that comes with, or that is associated with it can be just as scary as any Sabertooth. The consequences may not be as deadly but the psychological effects of failure (being eaten by the beast) are just as real.

So how do we overcome FEAR? How do we get past that inner voice warning us not to go down that road lest we get eaten by the beast? That voice that reminds us of the last time we made a mistake and how it made us feel?

There are some realizations that we have to come to. The FIRST is knowing that we cannot change what happened in the past. And while we are thinking of that past, it is important to understand the difference between LEARNING from that past and LIVING from it. We can recognize past mistakes, different avenues that might have been taken, but we cannot afford to allow ourselves to wallow in those mistakes and be stuck forever in the mire of perceived failure.

That is a lot! Just understanding that a past mistake has had a stagnating effect on our ability to move forward is HUGE! If you think on it, you may find that one or more past mistakes has accounted for a really big “But”.

So take some time to think about this first step of understanding your past. After all, it has led you to where you are now. You may even want to get out a notebook and pen/pencil and jot down some thoughts on the issue. What you learn about yourself may surprise you.

Until next time, blessings and all things Good.

“It’s All About Me”
You can be, do and have anything if you will allow it into your life.


What do You Believe About Yourself?

There is nothing you cannot be do or have if you allow it into your life.

Many would look at that sentence and never give it a second thought because they know it is true. Others would look at that sentence and immediately conclude that it is talking about someone. The difference? Mindset.

Some people are programed from an early age that they are set in their intelligence, in their ability, and in what they will be able to accomplish in their life.
Others take the sentence to heart, knowing that they are constantly learning, constantly improving and that the sky is only as high as they can learn to reach.

So, what is your mindset? Why? If your mindset is that you are limited, can you change it? I guess that depends on whether you want to change. And why wouldn’t you want to change? I know many people who don’t have a great deal of confidence in themselves. They think that if they don’t get something right (perfectly right) the first time, they should give up and go back to something more comfortable. What they forgot in their mindset is that they had to learn how to do those things that they are comfortable with in order to get to that point in the first place.

I don’t now anyone who was born with a vocabulary, the ability to recognize and identify things in their surroundings, to walk, to write, to type, to do pretty much anything. Walking took practice as did everything else in life. That means learning something new is possible. Does it mean that it will be done perfectly the first time? NO! Did Einstein have trouble learning math? YES! Did Michael Jordan have to practice and practice and practice to become a great basketball player? OF COURSE! Did Elvis (or any other artist) expect to pick up his guitar and just start playing like it was something he had been doing all his life? OF COURSE NOT!

Ask anyone you admire how they got where they are. They will tell you it took lots and lots of practice, and practice means they did not succeed the first, second, third, tenth, or maybe even the hundredth time.

If you are so committed to believing that you cannot be do or have what you dream of, why are you reading this? Why do you try? Why do you feel like there is more to life than you are currently experiencing? It is because there is!

I don’t know most of you on a personal level which means I have no idea what your current abilities are or what you think about them. BUT WHAT I DO KNOW ABOUT YOU is that you are just as capable and deserving of your dream as anyone on the planet. Yes, you CAN be, do or have anything if you will allow it into your life. Does that mean that you will play the same as Michael or Elvis or anyone else? No. You are an individual with your own approach to everything. You are your own person with your own everything. Does that mean you are not just as good? No. You will just do it with your own flair. But you can be just as good. All it takes is a little belief that you can. Once you believe you can, it just a willingness to step forward and start on that path of being what you want to be.

Believe in yourself! I do!

It all starts with a belief.
It all starts with a belief.

Living With Passion and Purpose

I have been rehearsing two beautiful and moving pieces of music that I will be singing as a duet with a wonderful soul this Sunday. “One With the Divine” by Gary Floyd and Doug LeBow and the other is “Only What You Make of It” by Little Big Town. I find rehearsing easy because I am really looking forward to performing. It is something that brings me joy: working with talented musicians, creating a sound that will move people to a better place. It is very far from the #thisaintit that so many experience on a daily basis. I am very grateful to have found something that brings me (and others) so much joy!
So, what is your joy? Do you have a passion? If you do, how often do you engage in the activity? If you are not doing it on a regular basis, what is holding you back? And what is holding you back from figuring out what is holding you back?
So often we let “life” get in the way of taking that next step to a happier and more fulfilling life. We say “I would love to do that but I have too much_________ to let me get to it.(You can fill in the blank) Sometimes that may be exactly the case. But it cannot be that way all of the time…unless we are doing things to keep it that way. Sometimes, without even realizing it, we subconsciously take on “duties” that we know will keep us from moving toward joy. Sometimes because the change is really, really scary, sometimes because our past has convinced us that we will not be successful in taking the chance at happiness.
What I know, as Abraham would say, is that there is nothing you cannot be, do or have if you will allow it into your life. And how do you allow it into your life? That, my friend, is the easy first step. If you know, or even have an idea of what would bring joy to your life, see yourself doing it. But not just in the daydream kind of sight; really SEE yourself doing it. See, hear and feel yourself there. Feel the rush of the excitement as you are in the midst of what brings you so much joy! For me and singing, I can certainly feel it while rehearsing, but I also see myself in front of the audience, surrounded by my fellow musicians (the band, the stage, and so forth) and I allow it all to invade my experience. MMMM. It feels like happiness. It feels like love. It feels like warm hugs, like the universe holding me it its arms.
Get the idea?
When you can SEE yourself doing what it is you love to do, you raise your experience to a higher vibration. You become one with the divine, and the Universe listens. It listens and then rushes to catch up to your vibration, bringing with it all of those things needed to make your experience real.
It, disney splash 3 You know that question everyone always walks around asking? “What is my purpose? I must be here for a reason.” Now you know the answer as well. You are here to life a happy, exciting and passionate life, ever growing, ever experiencing more and loving every minute of it!

For the Survivors

We are here to live a joy-filled life. It is our birth right. We knew this before we came into being. But some of us strayed from that path, whether by false promise of beautiful things, or because we could no longer see it for the dirt and leaves obscuring it from out sight. Some of us never even had a chance to look for this path, our birthright taken at first breath.

To live, to exist was to be in the darkness. Indescribable and yet all too familiar: filled with pain, steeped in depression, without power or choice. The only reprieve was sleep. But not a restful sleep for behind it lay the expectation of the day to come. And yet, there was something. Deep within, where it could not be seen, there was hope. Sometimes only a smoldering wisp of ash, but it was there. It hinted of better times, of a future where this life would end and another take its place.

I walk into the light. The smoldering hope that once was is now a flame shouting FREEDOM! And yet there is a fear which trails me. It brings an angst of uncertainty. Am I worthy of this life? What now?

I turn towards the sun and feel its warm embrace. I listen and hear a voice call out from within. It reminds me: I am. I am worthy. I am capable. I am strong. My life is my life and I allow it to be. I am strong. I AM A SURVIVOR!


The Benefits of Meditation

There is a relatively new story out about a school in the San Francisco area: Visitacion Valley Middle School. Once described as poor performing, with a high truancy and suspension rate, the visionaries in charge of this school decided to try something new: meditation.

I could spend hours talking about meditation: the benefits, different types, take you on a guided meditation (which you can find in my book It’s All About Me)and so on. But really, the proof of the incredible benefits of a daily practice of just two 15 minute sessions is best explained in the video link:

Watching this not only brought a feeling of joy for these kids and the community but a sense of vindication for a daily practice that, if practiced, really works. And why has this not caught on everywhere? Come on people, lets get behind something that works and move our children forward!

I’m going to leave it at that and encourage you to watch the video. If you feel emboldened, try my guided meditation. If you would rather have some earthly music to have playing in the background, go to Liquid Mind for the meditation break. Here is the link for Liquid Mind: But, by all means, let your childrens’ school officials know that there is something here that really has a positive effect. If they try it, they might find their students actually wanting to learn!

I would love some feedback from all you folks on your reactions and experiences.



Let Go Your Fears

“Let go your fears.” Easy words to say but not so easy to do. And yet it is a necessity to moving forward. So I ask myself, what is the worst that can happen should I decide to walk this path? The answer springs forth from the farthest reaches of the dark: “Death.”
But I have heard this talk before. How many times, I cannot count. I listen to it’s all to familiar voice and it tells me that I am doomed, that any change, whether perceived as better or not, will only result in my demise. It tells me that the unknown upon which I contemplate is dangerous, harmful and destined for failure. And so it convinces me that I am better off with the miserable existence to which I have become so accustomed.
So I let it go, this opportunity that has fallen in my lap. Fearful of change, scared of the unknown, I accept the voice’s counsel and remain where I am.
And yet there remains that yearning within my psyche; that hope that there is more to life than what I have experienced thus far. I question: can there be something more out there than this existence? Is there an end to the cycle of redundancy with which I have lived for so long? If I were to walk differently on my road, would it add to my life?
That voice you hear has a purpose. It is your alarm, your protector against the dangerous things that go bump in the night. It is there to remind you that past experiences have had not-so-great consequences when done in a certain way. It is how we learn not to place our hands into the fire. But it was never intended to keep us from moving forward. It was only intended to warn of the potential for harm lest we be careless in our lives. Unfortunately, many of us have allowed this protector to morph from a warning label into something much more ominous. 
Each of us is entitled, by our birthright,  to enjoy a happy, prosperous, fulfilling and successful life. Moving into this place of joy necessarily involves taking chances and experiencing new things. It requires changing the way we have done things in the past. Listening to that protector is part of that change. How much we listen to that protector is what makes the difference between learning from the past and living from the past. 
Listen with a critical ear to those warnings of doom. There is value in them, but only to the extent that we do not allow them to keep us from the experience of what might lead us to the joy and fulfillment we seek. Let go your fears of stepping outside of the walls you have built. Open the door and allow yourself to experience something new. But be careful, you may discover passion and purpose on the other side.

You are unique and marvelous! Let your individuality shine! it might even put a smile on your face. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

It’s All About Me
(An Interactive Guide to a Happier, More Fulfilling and Successful Life)

The Secret to Success

Have you ever sat quietly, closed your eyes and visualized what it is that you really, really want? I talk to people all the time who say they have daydreamed about doing what they love. I have also spoken to people who say that they could see themselves doing it. But those daydreams and visions are typically interrupted by the “reality” of the day’s activities, which is then followed by “Oh well, it’s nice to dream.”
Do you understand that you are the creator of your existence? Do you understand that you have the power at your fingertips to bring about the dreams and desires you want? Although it may seem like a foreign concept to many, it is one of the quickest ways to bring about change.Like everything else worth while, it takes practice but once practiced it becomes easy with results flowing almost faster than one can fathom.
The secret to successx-mas lights etc 001 is all about seeing and feeling what you want. Not just daydreaming about it,(although daydreams contain emotional aspects that alert the Universe to your desires) but seeing yourself there to the point of experiencing it.
So let’s start with the proposition that anything you can experience in any way start with a single thought. The thought grows into a bunch of thoughts and is then accompanied by a feeling or a wanting. It is the deepness or the power behind the wanting that gets those thoughts into motion, vibrating into every aspect of one’s being and it is that vibration that attracts the thing desired. Yes, there are steps in between the desire and the result but it is amazing how quickly this speeds up the process!
Let’s do a practical exercise and see what happens. (But only if you want to start seeing things show up in your life that you can really get passionate about.)
Start by trying to find a quiet place. (Once you get used to the process it won’t matter that there are things going on around you.)
What is it that you have a deep seated longing for? What is it that you could see yourself doing and being passionate about? Let yourself get lost in the feelings associated with actually doing whatever it is. What does it feel like this passion that you see yourself doing? Does it feel natural, does it bring you joy? Do you feel that excitement inside your innards like there was nothing on else you would rather be doing? I know. It feels wonderful. It feels like the Universe has embraced you in its arms. It feels like it is meant to be. It feels incredibly uniquely like the most incredible feeling ever!
Where are you in this vision? What is the scenery around you? Who is there with you? Are you interacting with others? Can you feel, touch, smell, hear and live in that passion you see?
Stay in that visual feeling place for a while. Focus on those wonderful feelings of accomplishment, of actually doing whatever it is that you have a longing for. When you are done with your visual, hang onto the feelings and go back there as often as you can.
but (as I said before) this is not the end of the exercise. Once you set your emotional intention, you need to be observant about your surroundings. Opportunities will start to flow to you and you will need to pay attention and recognize them and then make use of them.

Try this exercise a few times and see what happens. In fact, I challenge you to make the attempt and change your life for the better. And when you see how positive the results can be, email me and share your success.
If you have questions or need some further help in getting started, let me know that too. I am happy to help move you into the process.
