Thank You For Sticking With Me

June 7, 2015

Oh, my goodness. I just realized exactly how long I’ve been away from this site. I knew it was some time, but not this long. Life has been very busy lately, as it usually is this time of year. Things are good. It’s just that I am not finding enough hours in the day to do some of the things I like to do. Sharing my thoughts with you is one of those things I love, but it just got pushed to the backburner longer than I would have liked.

I apologize to anyone looking for new information here. However, I thank all of you who keep coming back. Even though I haven’t written in a while I still have a good number of people coming back and utilizing the information that is provided here. It means a lot to me, and I hope you are being impacted in a positive way.

As my schedule changes in the next few weeks I will have more time to devote to this site that I love, along the wonderful readers I truly love. Once again, please know how much I appreciate your continued support and feedback.

Have an excellent day :)


Find Out How to Deliberately Create Your Life

May 4, 2015

Did you know that you have the power to create your life? It’s true. I know what some of you are thinking right now. It is God that controls my life. After all, He created it in the first place, and He has full control. I would never disagree with that statement. It is true, and I often state that one of the wisest things we can do in our lives is let go and let God take control.

The more I learn about life on this earth, the more I learn that God wants to use us to accomplish His will. He wants to use us for His glory and greatness. In order to do that, I have learned that He has left much of the responsibility in our hands. I believe He wants us to be co-creators with Him, to accomplish His great will.

Although God is the ultimate creator, He has always used people to bring it about. Think of the greatest inventions. God had them in mind since the beginning of time, but used people to carry them out. Heck, He even uses people to create other people!

I have studied the idea of deliberate creation for some time. However, I read the most clear definition I’ve seen to date, and I would like to share it with you. It comes from Abraham Hicks in the book “Ask and it is Given”. Deliberate creation is defined as “focusing on what is intended while being constantly aware of one’s vibrational state of being, and connected to one’s Source”.

To me this is further proof that he have control of the circumstances in our lives, and we don’t have to let them control us. In this definition, I see a simple, 3 step formula that can help you, me, or anyone create the life they desire:

  1. Determine what you intend to be/do/have – The first step in the deliberate creation process is to set an intention. What exactly do you want? Once you have determined the exact desire, affirm the intention as often as possible. This works well for two reasons. One is that once the mind is locked on an idea or intention, it finds ways for you to act upon it and bring it into manifestation. Also, when you affirm that you intend to accomplish something, you don’t have the negative resistance from the subconscious canceling out the positive thoughts. For example, if you affirm “I am at my perfect weight” and you are unhealthy at the moment, your mind may prompt you to look in the mirror and remind you how untrue that statement is. When you say you intend to be whatever your perfect weight is, it is more believable, and your mind can focus on the goal with little or no resistance.
  2. Maintain a high vibration – I have written about the importance of vibration, which is the level of energy you are projecting. The higher your vibration, the more you set yourself up for blessings and the achievement of your desire. Often these blessings arrive in ways you would have never imagined. You can maintain the highest vibration by living in a state of joy, gratitude, and positive expectation. This step alone can transform your life. You can also use it hand in hand with the first one. When you affirm your intentions, visualize what it would be like to already have it and feel those high, positive emotions that raise your vibration in the process. This will certainly speed up the process of creating your ideal life.
  3. Stay connected to God – As with the other steps, you can bring great blessings into your life by following this step alone. Staying connected with God automatically keeps you at the highest vibration level. And when you ask specifically what God wants for you, it is impossible for that prayer to not be answered! I find that when I am well connected to God, I am much more clear of exactly what I need to act upon, and what I can leave in God’s hands for Him to do. I also know if I am going on the right direction, or if I need to detour and take other steps to go somewhere else.

When you follow this process, you can indeed create the life you are seeking to live. You can be or do anything you desire. You are co-creating with God because you are doing your part to make it happen, and allowing Him to do His. And remember, with God all things are possible. I recommend you start with this simple process to begin creating your dream life.

This is a small sample of the creative process. If you are seeking more in depth knowledge and practice of the creative process, I recommend this program by Dr. Robert Anthony, The Secret of Deliberate Creation. This program provides in depth information of you how to use the power of your mind along with this creative process to remove doubts, fears, and thoughts of failure, and take you instead to great confidence and success.

You may not think so, but you are creative. God made you that way. One of the greatest gifts He has given you is the ability to work with Him to create the life He wants you to live…a life of joy, adventure, and success. Enjoy the blessings :)


Here’s the Most Basic Way to Raise Your Vibration

April 23, 2015

If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction, you have heard of the concept of vibration. In case you don’t know, your vibration is the level of energy you are projecting. When you are at a high vibration, it means you are thinking positive thoughts and maintaining positive emotions. At a high vibration level, you allow positive situations and blessings into your life. When your vibration is low, you are doing the opposite. You are in essence resisting the good that God has for you, and you are subconsciously creating negative situations for yourself. Obviously, you want your vibration level to be as high as possible, as consistently as possible.

So how you do raise your vibration? Is it a difficult process? As far as raising your vibration, there are many different ways to accomplish it, and what works for one person may not necessarily work for another. Regardless, it does not have to be a difficult process.

I recently discovered a very easy way to maintain proper focus to keep your vibration high. It comes from something I’ve read countless times before. If you would like to know more, click the link below for the full article I wrote about the topic…

I also welcome you to share what works for you in increasing your vibration to a high level. It would certainly help me and my readers. Thank you in advance :)

A 3 Letter Word to Use For Miracles

March 30, 2015

I would like you to start by thinking of a miracle you would like to see in your life. Visualize it for a minute or two. Bathe in the emotion of seeing it realized, and feel as you would when (not if) it takes place.

If only it was that easy for your miracle to occur. Well, I have good news. It is this easy, if not easier. Visualization and faith are key ingredients for your dream miracle to become reality. However, I have been reminded many times lately of another way to make it happen. When I see and hear the same idea many times in different places in a short period of time, that’s when I know God is speaking to me.

This idea I have been reminded of is the power of asking. This simple 3 letter word, ASK, is a small yet powerful key in receiving what you desire. It’s all over the Bible… Ask and it will be given to you (Matt 7:7); Whatever you ask for in prayer, believing that you already have it, will be yours (Mark 11:24); You may ask me for anything in My name and I will do it (John 14:14). If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given to you (John 15:7).

The above verses are powerful enough, and meditating on even one or two of them consistently could be life-changing. There are plenty more where these came from. I recommend finding one that most strikes your emotional cord and making it a part of your being.

One idea that’s helped me a great deal in my personal growth is finding detailed, exact definitions for simple words. We’ve used the word ask all of our lives. We know what it means. However, I dug a bit deeper. Here are some definitions (taken from dictionary.com) of the word ASK, and then I will explain how we can apply it in our prayer life.

  • to try to get by using words; to request
  • to solicit from
  • to demand; expect
  • to call for; need; require

When you ask God for a miracle, in essence you are doing all of these. As I learn more about God, I can see how these apply. For example, when God created the world, He spoke it into existence. When Jesus calmed the storm, he spoke to the waves and demanded that they stop. When He healed people, He spoke the word and it was done.

This power of asking also lies in your hands. Know exactly what you want. Then use your words to ask God to make it happen. Know that you can expect to receive what you ask for. There are only two conditions to receiving your desire when you ask. One is that it is within God’s will. Now please don’t make the mistake many people do (and I did for a long time) with this concept. They use this concept of God’s will as a “maybe-ness” to receiving their desire, like maybe God wants to grant this or maybe He doesn’t. It’s not like that at all. It simply means that as long as your desire is part of God’s nature it is good. That means that asking for greater health, improving your relationships, and getting out of debt are all within His will. Asking to hook up with the beauty at the desk next to you (even though you’re both married) or for something that will hurt someone else are examples of something outside of God’s will that He will not answer. So unless it’s something you know is wrong, don’t be afraid to ask!

The second condition is that you give the glory to God. You can do nothing without Him. When your main focus is that God will be glorified when your miracle takes place, it will supercharge the manifestation of your desire. It’s only a matter of time until you reap the benefits.

If you have held back from asking God for miracles due to fear, lack of worthiness, or whatever reason, now is the time to realize that He wants you to ask. And when you do, He is ready and willing to bless you in ways you can’t even imagine. Use your words, call for His assistance, and expect the blessing. The see the great things God can do :)


Will Your Fears Come to Pass?

March 9, 2015

I received some excellent information from my pastor the other day. He said 99% of our fears never come to pass. I don’t know the exact source of this information, but I certainly believe it.

Fear is one of the greatest reasons we don’t reach our goals. Now, knowing that what we fear almost never occurs in reality, don’t let it stop you! Instead of focusing on fear and self-imposed limitation, focus on what great possibilities exist, and the unlimited potential within you.

Many times in the Bible, God says do not fear, but be strong and courageous. Notice what happens when this advice is followed. Miracles happen and conquests are made.

It’s ok to receive fearful thoughts. Those will always arrive. The key is to dismiss those thoughts, and shift your thinking to faithful thoughts that will enable you to act on and realize your dreams. By doing so, your dreams will come to pass more than 99% of the time. Enjoy the blessings :)


Can Reaching Your Goals Be This Simple?

March 7, 2015

believe in myself

I share often on this space about formulas to rapidly manifest your goals and doing what it takes to make it happen. I believe strongly in these formulas. I have written books about them and use them regularly in my own life.

There are times when I start over-complicating things. You may do the same. Instead of sticking with the basics, you think you need to get fancy and go over the edge to make things happen. You then get frustrated when you remain stuck, even with this extra effort.

I was reminded today of the importance of keeping things as simple as possible. I was reading part of a book called “Three Magic Words”. It was actually two magic words that stood out…thought and faith. I share often how powerful your thoughts are and how you can shape your life by controlling them. Yet as much as I know about the topic, I still sometimes get into the habit of making things much more complicated than they should be.

It is amazing how, by keeping your thoughts positive, you invite positive situations into your outer world. Combine these positive thoughts with the faith that you can achieve it, and you have a combination like no other. You don’t have to look beyond this or do anything crazy. As often as you can, check in with what you are thinking. Are you focusing on what you desire? Are you feeling as though you already have it? Do you know without a doubt that you are worthy of receiving it?

The key is to focus squarely on what you want. Keep it locked in your imagination and don’t give any thought to what is or could be holding you back. Know that if God is for you no one can be against you, and that all things are possible to he or she who believes.

You may be asking, aren’t I supposed to take some kind of action as well? I can’t just wish my way towards my dreams. You are correct. However, it’s amazing how when you focus on the feeling of already living your dream and demonstrating the faith of its inevitable realization, the motivation to act and knowledge of what to do is engrained. It happens almost automatically. It doesn’t seem like drudgery or hard work.

I recommend keeping this as simple as possible today. Focus on the basics of positive thought and faith. It’s amazing how far just these concepts can take you. There are things you can do like affirmations and visualization to speed up the process, but just by focusing on these two things…positive thought and faith…you can quickly move yourself to the life you desire. I am full confident of this fact. Enjoy the blessings :)
