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 🙂


A New Way To Measure Success This Year

January 5, 2014

One of my favorite and most helpful authors is Dr. Robert Anthony. His advice on how to utilize the power of the mind has been a great help to me and many others in bringing life to a higher level.

I am on Dr. Anthony’s mailing list, and I regularly receive gems of information from him. This is one of the best yet, and I wanted to share it with you. Here’s to your success : )

Hi Joe,

I wanted to take a moment to say Happy New Year to you and yours…

Are ready for a great New Year?

To help you get off to a running start I would like you to consider changing
your perception of WHAT SUCCESS MEANS TO YOU!

As I mature and have a better understanding of how things work, I have
come to understand that HOW WE MEASURE SUCCESS will determine our
happiness, or lack of it.

We tend to MEASURE SUCCESS in relation to achieving our goals.  In other
words, we set a goal and if we achieve it, we are happy and satisfied.  If we
don’t, we feel like a failure.  This creates anxiety, fear and sometimes even depression.

You will never be happy or satisfied if you keep focusing on what you DON’T HAVE,
or what you have NOT ACHIEVED.

Instead, consider this…

The way to MEASURE SUCCESS, and still be happy and satisfied, is to look at
WHERE YOU HAVE COME FROM.

In other words, LOOK BACK and notice how you have IMPROVED in any area of your
life – even if it is a VERY SMALL improvement.

If you LOOK BACK and celebrate your INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS, the next
steps become so much easier, because you are happy and satisfied right now.

So, if you did not achieve everything you wanted last year, when you finish reading this,
take a look at the INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS you have made and give yourself
a pat on the back. Make a short list and then give yourself some credit instead of focusing
on what went wrong or did not happen.

Seriously. I mean it.  MAKE THAT LIST. I’m watching you!

Start this New Year with the feeling that you have already started to make some incremental
improvements and that you are ready for more.  NEVER, I repeat NEVER, judge yourself.
Give yourself credit for what you have accomplished – no matter how small those accomplishments
may seem.

This will get you off to great start this year because you will START OFF with a sense of
ACCOMPLISHMENT instead of a sense of failure – which is never useful.  If you build on your
incremental accomplishments you can do EVEN BETTER this year than you did last year.

Before I sign off I want to share a quote of mine with you…

“Any dream that can pass through one’s screen of logic into the Subconscious and is earnestly
desired, can be obtained”.
– Dr. Robert Anthony

Once you give up all the “logical reasons” why something cannot work for you and allow your
new dream or goal to enter your Subconscious,  it’s an idea whose time has come.  If you truly
desire it and your Subconscious agrees to it – it’s yours!

Cheers For a Great New Year,

Dr. Robert Anthony

Keeping Things Extra Simple To Manifest Your Desires

September 8, 2013

I begin today with an interesting question…why is that everyone wants to do things the easy way, yet when they are presented with the easiest way of doing things, they try to complicate it?

Hopefully you are not confused and I haven’t already lost you. Still, for many people we can’t get past the truth of this statement. To accomplish our goals and realize our dreams, we want the quickest, easiest route that requires the least amount of work. I think that way too, and I honestly don’t see anything wrong with that. The problem is, people (including myself) are often blind to that easy road and instead make things difficult because they think it has to be that way to reach the goal.

As I was doing my inspirational reading today, I found a passage from Dr. Robert Anthony about producing results. He provides a formula that’s as simple as it gets. Yet he too warns to keep it simple and avoid over-complicating it. Ready? It’s as simple as this….know what you want and believe you can have it. That’s it!

Knowing this truth and keeping it that simple is one of the greatest keys to manifesting your desires. It’s that easy. Be clear on EXACTLY what you want, and know that you are worthy of it. Remember also that with faith ALL things are possible.

You may be asking…aren’t we supposed to do something? Don’t I have to take some type of action? Isn’t faith without works dead? I answer each question with a definite yes. However, when your mind is completely focused on the achievement of the goal, you are automatically led to the correct action to take. And it won’t seem like you are going out of your way to act. It will be automatic. When your faith is strong enough, the works will follow naturally. It’s an amazing supernatural process, but it works every time.

In this blog I have provided 3, 4, 5, and multi-step formulas to help reach your goals. I still recommend you follow those formulas because it provides great helpful detail that will help you manifest your goals. However, when you find that you are over-complicating things or beginning to doubt, just keep it simple. Use this simple two step formula to focus on your desire and believe you can have it.

It is amazing how powerful this easy formula is. Once again, I challenge you to keep it that way. Don’t over-complicate it by trying to make things happen yourself. Just focus on the positive end result, know it’s already yours, and take any action you are inspired to take, no matter how small it is.

I end with a Bible story of a blind man. He knew he wanted his eyesight. He knew he was worthy of having it even though people around him doubted and put him down. When Jesus was in town, he took the action of calling out to Him (even though everyone around him tried to shut him up), pursuing Him, and asking for his sight. He had faith, and his sight was restored immediately.

Remember…determine what you want and know that you can have it. It will be yours. It’s that simple. Enjoy the blessings : )

Who Sets The Limits?

February 21, 2013

Can you imagine if there was no such thing as a speed limit? Although it may be a bit crazy at times, it would be nice to have the freedom to drive without limits, especially if you need to be sompeplace quickly. Who sets these limits anyway? In many cases, we are critical of people who put limits on our lives. Nobody likes to be restrained.

I will add a part two to the above question. Who sets the limits in your life? How many limits do you have? I will say that I don’t like to be limited. However, as I have asked myself the question about limits and figure out who to direct my anger at for putting limits in my life, I quickly realize who is to blame. I’ll give you a hint. He shares the same name and body space as me. It is me! When I experience limits and lack of progress, I have no one to blame but myself. Other people can try to limit me, but they only succeed if I let them.

I serve a God of unlimited power. That power is part of me. I wonder how He must feel when He offers this power freely, and I reject it, only to put my own limits on it. Of course I don’t do it deliberately. Regardless, there is no need to focus on any limitations, especially when God’s unlimited power is readily available.

It’s amazing the ideas I receive when I am about to write a post. Just before I was ready to write this, I received an e-mail from Dr. Robert Anthony. It expalains that if you took a goldfish who was confined to a small bowl and put it in the ocean, it would still swim in a limited area as long as it was alive. It’s because it doesn’t understand that it can now go beyond its limits. He thinks that going any further is impossible.

Please don’t be like the goldfish. It’s a simple fact that if you don’t set limits on your success you won’t have them. You’re only as limited as you think you are. I have learned to stop confining myself to the fishbowl and instead have learned to throw myself into the ocean. I challenge you to do the same. You can slow yourself down or go as fast as you would like.

So why not go all out? Success is yours if you believe it. Let God carry you. If He doesn’t want to carry you somewhere He won’t. He’ll take you someplace even better. As long as something you desire is in His will, He won’t stop you from getting there. So don’t you be the reason your success is limited. Go fo it, full speed ahead. Enjoy the blessings : )


A Great Way To Increase Your Positive Energy

January 22, 2012

I have always admired people who have a constant, positive energy about them. It is contageous, and you can often feel their positive energy without them saying a word. This is the type of person I desire to be. When I am at my best, I exhude this quality. The challenge is for it to be an everyday, all the time thing.

I also continue to read how, the higher our positive energy level is, the more we open ourselves up for high level opportunities and blessings in our lives. When we are at this high energy level we become that magnetic person that lights up a room with our presence, and that people instantly know they can count on for positive energy and results, If only there was a consistent way to maintain this high, positive energy.

I received an e-mail from Dr. Robert Anthony today. It talked about this subject of maintaining positive energy. His idea was so powerful that I felt the need to share. His suggestion is this…the best way to maintain and increase our positive energy is to go out of our way to increase the positive energy of others. The more we do this, the more we keep our positive energy high and experience those desired blessings.

In his message, Dr. Anthony gives some simple suggestions. Besides doing acts of service lovingly, he says we can do this without even saying a word. I love this next suggestion, even though many would never even think of it. He says to project postive, loving thoughts to every person we come in contact with, whether we know the person or not. Simple things he suggests are a smile, or a silent saying of “I hope your day goes great”, or “God loves you”, or anything like that. If you do this in a sincere loving way, and invite God to get in the middle of it, great things happen. The other person will be blessed (even though you may not see or realize it), and it works to maintain and increase your own energy level as a result of the love that you are sending.

I believe this is a great way to, not only increase your own positive energy level, but to positively impact your entire environment. That is a constant goal of  mine, and if such a simple step can be used to do that, I am all for doing it. I’ve already seen how this works in my life. As mentioned, it is when I most love myself and those around me that I most feel the positive energy and receive the most blessings in my life. These are the times where I can just walk into a room and know that the positive energy is there with me and all of those around me.

Don’t let the simplicity of this idea prevent you from doing it. If you do it regularly and sincerely, you will be blessed beyond belief. Have an awesome, positive energy day!
