As we move into the last six months of the year, we should reflect on what we wanted to accomplish this year. What dreams, visions, plans did we have at the beginning of the year, and where are we in the process of manifesting what we desire most?
Many of us might not be where we imagined, and sometimes we feel like giving up when we encounter challenges. Or we may be close to achieving our goals, but need to take a new perspective and reaffirm our vision.
The following are some of my ‘wisdom questions’ I use to help me move forward around what I desire. Read the rest of this entry »
Last week, a long awaited small miracle happened at my home. For some I guess this happening wouldn’t have been a big deal, but I was over the moon. I have worked non-stop on manifesting this, despite the odds and negative expectations of so called well-meaning people.
Approximately 18 months ago, a stray dog we’ve since named Brutus, began joining us on walks and came to the fence for treats. It was only because of his love for our other dogs that he finally entered onto the property at all. He was terrified of us humans. A subsequent psychic reading I had done on him, by a reputable animal communicator colleague, described how he’d been abused in a small shed as a young pup. Read the rest of this entry »
Everyone dreams. Whether it is a daydream, meditative dream or when you’re sleeping, we dream all the time. Many dreams carry symbolic energy within them, often containing spiritual messages for the dreamer. Dreams are not always easy to interpret, whenever we manage to remember them, but dream analysis can be developed as a practice. All it takes is some patience and perseverance.
The daydream or ‘awake dream’ is simply those things that you envision for your life. You may dream of a life partner, family, new house, vacation, new car, promotion at work, and so forth. Awake dreams are important, as they are a way to bring your true heart’s desires to the surface. Read the rest of this entry »
The concept of a vision board as a tool to manifest your desires is simple. Since most of us tend to get distracted very easily, the board is a constant reminder of what we want and the steps we need to take toward our goals.
In short, a vision board is a visual reminder of our hopes and dreams, along with affirming words or sayings. Like people, no two are the same, and you don’t have to spend a fortune to make one for the New Year.
When making your personal board, it’s best to be as specific as possible. For example, almost everyone might say: “I wish to be successful in life!” But really read between the lines. Is this a promotion at work? A better relationship with friends or family? Choose pictures or words that represent exactly what you want. If you only say “I want to travel,” it is not as specific as pictures of a Hawaiian beach or Big Ben in London. If you need a new car, find a photo of the exact make and model.

I recently ran into my good friend Susie, whom I had not seen in a while. After exchanging the usual pleasantries, Susie told me how she was not so happy with her present circumstances, especially since she had paid a substantial fee to attend a course on how to manifest success in particular areas of her life.
The course promoted the use of a vision board. The idea was to focus on what her actual desire was and then create a visual of this intention. For example, if she wanted a new home she was to cut out a picture from a magazine that closely resembled the home she would like to own, and then she had to place that on her vision board. The same would be true if she wanted a new car. If it was a new relationship she was seeking, she could cut out a picture of a happy-looking couple and add it to her dream board.

Today we once again find ourselves thinking about the things we are grateful for. But should we be thankful and appreciative only one day of the year? The Thanksgiving holiday is wonderful opportunity to start a simple gratitude practice of kindness and sharing, which we can apply in our daily lives.
Social media offer us many fun ways to practice gratitude and contribute to creating a better world. We hear and see more stories of paying it forward with random acts of kindness on the Internet these days. We see charitable campaigns, empathetic activism, compassion and benevolence increasingly expressed on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – in stark contrast to the other side of the news found in the mass media.

I am more and more pleasantly surprised at the number of clients who are making their own vision boards with great success these days. Yet, I still suggest creating a vision board to many customers who feel it is their lot in life to be poor, unhappy, lonely, or cheated on by a partner.
Often people don’t even realize the extent to which they affirm the negative. I find myself cringing, because in essence they are confirming that the things they really don’t want is part of their destiny. So, for starters, I usually ask them to observe their dialogue and to focus on replacing any negatives and ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ with a positive. Often many years of stating negative words need to be re-formatted in order to manifest the life your truly desire. Read the rest of this entry »
