How to Use Gratitude For The Simple Choices

Today I want to give you the first of five steps of how you can stay in control of your life. We are all given the same opportunities every single day and every day is a brand new day. Today is not the same as yesterday and it is not the same as the day we are going to have tomorrow.  

This technique comes from my friend Jack in Michigan – he actually uses his fingers to remind him of where he’s at. The first one he uses is a thumbs up.

We wake up in the morning and it’s a brand new day. […]

How to Use Constructive Thinking to Create Your Dreams

Today I want to talk about constructive thinking. Last week I talked about having a blueprint of what you want. I also mentioned that a lot of what is in your unconscious mind is going to come to the forefront. This is because your mind is telling you that your blueprint is not part of the image of your life you are seeing.

There is no denying that this is going to happen and that’s okay because this is an unsettling part of your journey. Your ego is freaked out because it doesn’t know where it’s going. The ego does not like uncertainty!

As long as […]

How to “Think” the Future You Want Into Your Present

Today I want to talk about thinking in a certain way.  What I mean is that you are never going to get exactly what you want unless you have a blueprint.

A builder can have all the hammers, the saws, the materials in the world but if he doesn’t have a blueprint of the structure he needs to build, he can’t build it.

In our minds, we need to see what we want. When we know what we want, is when Spirit can go out and help us achieve it. We will also attach emotions to the things that we want, but it always […]

Why You Need To Say Goodbye To Your Internal Judgement

Today I want to talk about Internal Judgement. Did you know that when you are born you were operating at a genius capacity?

Studies have shown that 99.99% of kids born are operating at a genius capacity. The reason for that is that our learning curve is very steep. We are in a new world and we’re testing out our environment. We’re learning about our bodies, to speak, to walk, eye-hand coordination, how to interact with others. It’s a huge amount of information to learn and process.

Studies also went on to find that at 5 years of age only 20% of children were operating at […]

How to Choose to Be Happy

Today I’d like to talk about happiness. I know we live in a world that doesn’t seem to contain a lot of happiness. But it does, and it starts with you.

What makes your heart sing? Do you do it or do you just wish you could? Do you think you don’t have enough time or money?  

Happiness Is a Choice

It is our innate nature to be happy. We have so much beauty around us on this planet all we have to do is look around for it. If you are surrounded by people that you love, why aren’t you happy?

Yes, money can feel like […]

Are You Tapping Into Spirit to Get the Things You Truly Want?

Today I want to talk about possibilities. Do you know what you want? Do you know where you aremgoing? Do you have a roadmap of how you’re going to get there?

When you have an idea of what you want, the Universe will conspire in your favor to help you achieve it. You also want to write it down because that starts the manifestation process. Then you want to preface it by saying “I am so happy and grateful now that…” This brings it into the present.

This process does not always have to be for something lofty.

You don’t have to wait to partner with Spirit just […]

Are You Taking Baby Steps on the Road to Your Best Life?

Today I want to talk about baby steps. When I started my business, Awakening Spirit, 20-plus years ago, I did it by taking baby steps without even realizing I was doing it.

We live in a 7-11 world. The microwave is too slow and all our problems are solved in an hour if we base our experience on the TV shows we watch.  That is not what real life is or what running a business is like.

When I started my company, I had a lot of head work I had to do. First I had to realize that I was worthy and deserving. I […]

Control Your Thinking to Access All Possibilities to a Problem

Several years ago I wanted to go to a spiritual retreat that was happening in Yellowstone. I had no idea how I was going to make this happen. I didn’t have a ride, a place to stay, and I had limited funds. I had all kinds of things stacked against me. But I knew I wanted to go.

I talked to just a couple of people and I ended up with a place to stay because someone needed roommates. I found a ride. Opportunities opened up and I managed to get to Yellowstone.

 Once I got there I had another set of problems. I didn’t know how […]

A Simple Practice to Keep Moving Toward Your Dreams

Today I want to discuss the “Open Gate.” We all have them. What I’m referring to when I use the term “Open Gate” is the unique mission or purpose that we have for being here. The dream you are moving toward.

When we are moving in that direction we experience life as exciting and joyful. It feels like life couldn’t get any better. This is usually an indication that you are living in your dream. You are living with your Spirit and you’re connected with the Source.

When you are feeling constricted or overwhelmed that is usually an indication that you are allowing negativity to come in. This […]

A Simple Technique for Beating Worry

Today I want to share with you a simple technique for beating worry or concern if you don’t know how to solve a problem. It’s a very simple technique.

I recommend that you get a jar with a lid and put a label on it that says “God Can.”  Then, I want you to write down everything you are worried about, everything you don’t know how to solve. Whatever your concerns are. Put that in the jar and seal it.

When your mind starts to bring up the worry and the concern, the “How am I going to do this?” you remind it […]
