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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Moving Beyond Reason to Create the Life You Want Today

Let’s talk about reason.

Our reasoning capacities are meant to be used not just in the material realm, but also in the spiritual realm. After all, a Spirit-led life will cause you to do more.

While it is easier to reason through our five senses—sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste—we also need to take hold of the additional resources available to us in the spiritual realm.

Keep in mind that there are so many forces that will hinder you as you try to make something happen. But as you use all your mental faculties—your future memory, perception, will, and reasoning—you can start moving […]

How to Access Your Will to Create the Life You Want

Today I want to talk about how to access the Will.  When we think of “Will” we think of willpower.  If I want to change something I will “will” it into existence.  That means we are forcing something. It is very short lived and it’s not going to last.

The Will is part of the spiritual side of who we are that is bigger and more magnificent than we are a far as our human capacity. We just don’t understand how to access the Will in order to create the life that we want to live.

There was a study done […]
