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 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 Use Adversity to Get Better Not Bitter

Today I want to give you a tip on how to maintain who you are and where you are when advertsity hits your life to get better not bitter.

We all will have events that happen in our lives that are horrible and devastating. You can become angry and upset, and that’s a normal initial reaction. But you have the option to allow those feelings to make you bitter or move on and become better. It’s all in how you perceive the event.

Personally, when I went through my divorce I was devastated. I chose not to become bitter but to look at it as a […]

It’s counter intuitive, but the most successful people in the world know the importance of building fun and relaxation into their schedule.

When you’re having fun the world seems […]

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 […]
