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 […]

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 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 […]

How to Quiet Your Mind

I’d like to share a tip on how you can quiet your mind.

This tip is borrowed from “contemplative prayer” introduced by the Catholic Church many years ago.

When you want to quiet your mind, visualize that you’re on a rowboat in a peaceful, quiet, and tranquil place. You’re bobbing along in the rowboat. A thought comes up, instead of getting upset with yourself, change it to a fish. Observe the fish approaching the boat, and then swimming away.

The thought is there to distract you. The more fish you see, the more mind chatter you have!  

This is how you’re supposed to handle […]

I am starting to live a dream that I want, and without a shadow of a doubt, I know that I am going to have it.
