We’ve just entered the autumn season. Autumn is the time for harvest and is also a time of completion.  The seeds that were planted in the spring have grown into the fruit bearing plants and are now reaching their peak of bounty.

This is the time of year when we can witness the fruits of our own mock-ups for 2014. What seed ideas did you plant for your life goals and dreams? Have you manifested what you desired? Did the same old weeds keep popping up as different situations and challenges attempting to block your goals from taking form?

Are you happy with your creations? If not, why not?

Most of the issues people have in their lives; the beliefs in struggle, lack, limitation and the non-ability to live a happy, healthy and abundant lifestyle, stem from the root cause of not knowing who they truly are as spirit. We get hypnotized into believing we are the body/personality and have fallen to sleep to our true spiritual identity.

You have a body – but you are not that body. You have thoughts – but you are not those thoughts. You have emotions – but you are not those emotions. You are spirit. Your body is your house. The quality of life you choose to live is based on the thoughts you continuously think. Your emotions are the language your body uses to let you, spirit, know what’s going on in your environment.

Autumn is the perfect time of year to awaken from spiritual slumber and regain your personal divinity as a spirit in a body. This is the perspective that will help you manifest your hearts desires! However – there’s some house cleaning that needs to be done first!

Exercise #1 – The Purge List

Get a pad of paper or a notebook.gi-list

Dedicate some quiet time each day for personal reflection.

What are the hurts and resentments you’re still carrying with you? You know them. Is there a family member or friend who mistreated you? Does that same emotion fire up when you think about this? Write it down!

Write down all the pet peeves, complaints, anger and resentments. Be honest with yourself. Nobody else will be reading this list. This is your time to get absolutely real with yourself. As you’re writing everything down ask yourself if you’re finally ready to let it all go?

These past time situations are acting as blocks preventing you from bringing new positive things into your life. And they HAVE become your pet peeves! You feed them, you nurture them, you carry them with you everywhere you go, including into your mock-up space, which is why you keep attracting the same problems and situations over and over and over again.

I encourage you to spend time each day doing this exercise. When you’re done each day, take a moment to write down the things you’re thankful for in your life right now. We always want to end on a positive note!

Do this for seven days. Next week I will post a video of a powerful exercise that will guide you into hypnosis for the final purge before we move to our next exercise! Have fun with this! I can honestly say my life keeps getting better and I continue to prosper on all levels as I work these techniques!

Love and blessings to all who wander by to read this post!

I was asked that question by a new client the other day. My first thought were these words by the Rolling Stones; you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find, that you gme cape codet what you need!

No, I didn’t break into song when she asked me the question, but it IS a good question, right? Does the Law of Attraction really work?

The short answer is – yes! The Law of Attraction truly works. In fact, it is at work every day in your life. It always has been, and always will be. This doesn’t mean that you’ll always get what you want! The Law of Attraction is based upon the thoughts you think. You think a thought and you’ve just created a thought-form. This thought-form has a life of its own based upon the quality and intensity of life you breathed into it. What gives your thoughts life? Your emotions! Think about it:

Let’s say every Monday you get out of bed thinking ‘Oh crud, it’s Monday. I hate Monday’s. Monday’s NEVER go well for me. I hate my commute, I don’t want to go back to work . . .’ you get the idea, yes? So you’ve been thinking those thoughts every Monday for quite a long time and my guess is that those thoughts are not filled with warm, fuzzy happy feelings. Nope, they are probably filled with emotions like boredom, frustration, perhaps even anger. Now you have Monday thought-forms energized with negative emotions buzzing around the atmosphere. You’ve sent those little guys out to do your bidding. What happens next? Maybe a parking ticket, a traffic jam, an angry boss or co-worker, you name it. And then you can say ‘You see? I TOLD you Mondays never went well for me and this is the proof!’ And Voila! The Law of Attraction has worked again!

The key is to learn how to stay focused on what you WANT to experience, regardless of what you are going through in the moment. And although this sounds simple – it does take practice and perseverance to retrain your brain!

What? You’ve been applying this concept to attract more money and you’re still broke?

What? You’ve been working really hard and have spent thousands of dollars going from class to class, group to group, coach to coach, teacher to teacher who all promise to help you bring that perfect mate into your life – and you’re still single?

Yes, the principles work. But every person is a unique individual with a pre-programmed subconscious mind, including yourself! Your subconscious mind might be operating on a belief system that doesn’t allow you to truly buy-in to the concept that you can have a healthy relationship, a healthy bank account or what have you. Your subconscious mind might believe it’s doing a fabulous job protecting you from getting hurt, so keeps creating situations that will block what you want from manifesting into your life.

This is the reason hypnosis is so important and such a valuable, powerful modality to get the Law of Attraction working in the positive for your life goals and dreams. With the proper facilitation you can release the old programs that haven’t been working for you. You can let go of the blocks and all the uncomfortable feelings that go with them. Once you’ve done that, you can then start picturing and feeling what you want to bring into your life. You’ll be amazed how much faster the process will be!

We’ve just entered the Autumn Season. My next blog entry will explain why this is the best time of year to start letting go of everything you no longer want to experience in your life. I’ll include some simple exercises that I’ve been using for many years that really do work – when you work them! I’ll be writing this within the next day or two. If you want to be prepared, I invite you to start making a list of all the situations you no longer want to experience. Let me – help you – make this the best time of your life so far!

Until then, love and blessings to all who wander by to read this post!

Healthy Soil 3

Healthy Soil 3 (Photo credit: NRCS SD)

The exercise I’m sharing today is an important step in the process of manifesting health, wealth and abundant living. I encourage you to give your ‘mock-up’ space the respect it deserves and you will reap the benefits of taking this extra time of preparation. It’s similar to the way farmers prepare the earth for planting. I used to watch this process every year on the farm where I grew-up. After the dormant winter months the farmers go into the fields turning over the soil. Then they’d walk the garden, picking out and throwing into a pile all the rocks that were brought up in the overturned dirt. It always amazed me how many rocks there were each year! It also explained why there are so many stone walls in New England – but that’s another story!

Tilling the soil before planting new crops is akin to tilling the soil of your subconscious mind. You want to uproot and cast aside the old, frozen stuck ways of thinking and feeling. These are the blocks, or, rocks, imbedded in your subconscious mind that create the belief thinking of lack and limitation. If you plant a new seed idea without clearing the soil, it most likely won’t sprout into what you desire. You need to clean out or destroy the old before bringing in, or creating, the new. This is the concept of creating and destroying.

Imagine you were given a bunch of money to buy a complete new wardrobe. When you get home from your shopping spree what must you do before putting away your new attire? You need to throw away the old worn clothing from the closet to make room for the new! The same is true for your subconscious mind; you need to clear out the closet of old thoughts of lack, limitation, poor health etc. before putting in the new thoughts of health, wealth and abundant living.

In my last post entry, Is It Okay To Want?,  the exercise was to write down different things you want to manifest in your life and to pay attention to the corresponding feelings around those desires. This brings us to exercise Number 2. I suggest you get a small notebook as you’ll be working with this for at least a week.

You’re going to take a walk through your life as it is, right now. I want you to write down all the uncomfortable thoughts, disappointments, feelings around every aspect of your life. This isn’t meant to be a bummer session! It’s important to acknowledge where you are in any given moment of time. In scripture it says “For nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hidden, that shall not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17

Once you admit, which is to confess, how you feel about certain aspects of yourself and your life you allow yourself to realize you don’t need to stay in that state of mind any longer! It’s when we deny or pretend the complaints, worries, disappointments are NOT there is when we block ourselves from moving forward with positive change.

Exercise #2:

Get a notebook because you’ll be working with this for a week or more. Create categories to help keep your thoughts organized. Here’s an example.

Physical: Start with your body. How do you really feel about it? Unhappy with the tummy? Wish the legs were a bit more defined? Write down all the feelings and thoughts about your body. You can even begin with “I admit I have these thoughts and feelings….” because now you’ve brought it out into the light!

Move out to the place where you live. Your house or apartment. The neighborhood. Some things you have no control over and this isn’t about running away from situations. Again, it’s about acknowledging your thoughts and feelings.

What about your car or mode of transportation – write it all down!

Financial: What are your thoughts/feelings about your back account? Debt, your job or lack of employment? Get the idea?

Mental: What are your thoughts about yourself or the world around you? I admit I complain about this or that. I admit I don’t think very highly of myself. I feel inadequate when….

Spiritual: What are your beliefs about God? Do you have any? Do you believe you’re being punished? Not perfect enough? Are you angry at a particular church or priest or minister? Do you remember who you are as spirit? Write it down!

Again, the idea is to till the soil of your subconscious mind to bring up all the old stuck ways of thinking and feeling. After you’ve taken the time each day doing this, go back and write down the positive things in each category. This will help neutralize any discomfort during this important process. I like to end each session by blessing everything I have no matter how I feel about it at the time. And remember, once you truly accept where you are the good news is – you don’t have to stay there!

Have fun!

I’ve been meditating on forgiveness. I deeply believe it is important to practice forgiving, letting go and moving forward in life. This is something I have been applying in my daily life for many years. A few months ago I was accused of holding on to old resentments and not forgiving certain people from my past. According to these individuals, from their perspective, had I truly forgiven I’d be open to going out to dinner with and/or inviting these people into my home. The ones accusing me became quite passionate, if not downright angry at my behavior. I was accused of being willing to help drug addicts and alcoholics but not my old friends.

I was quite surprised at this outburst. I remember my teacher saying that when we speak we are usually talking about ourselves first, if we haven’t taken the time to clear consciousness. Or, if the shoe fits wear it, if it doesn’t kick it off!

So what exactly does it mean to forgive?

The definition of forgive from the dictionary is: stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for an offense, flaw or mistake.

So forgive is a verb. It is something we need to take action on, vs. something we just think about.

I recently had a conversation with an individual who is in the process of filing for a divorce after forty years of marriage. He is filled with lots of anger and has been resenting people and situations for more than forty years! That’s a long time of holding a grudge and keeping things internalized. So I wasn’t too surprised when he told me he might have liver problems.

From the book Heal Your Body, Louise L. Hay says liver problems stem from the thinking/emotional process of chronic complaining, justifying fault-finding to deceive yourself. Feeling bad.

Whoa! You mean the more we think about something with lots of negative emotions we can create symptoms of illness in our body? That’s right! You’ve heard the saying you are what you eat? Well even truer, we are what we think!

I suggested to my friend that he might want to start thinking positive thoughts and getting some positive feelings flowing through his body. His answer? I don’t have anything positive in my life. Wow! I could think of ten in that moment – and it wasn’t even my life!

Forgiveness is not for the other person. Forgiveness is for our self.

Why? Because we are the ones left walking around feeling crappy. Think about a situation when somebody really made you mad.  Perhaps you kept dwelling on the issue, talking about it to your friends. And yes, maybe at the time it was a bad thing that happened to you. Now fast forward to the present. Are you still complaining about the same thing? That person did it to me! That person ruined my life, screwed me over, or that person_________________, you fill in the blank!

That person is probably happy and enjoying life. They most likely have no idea you are still upset. And guess what? You’re the one holding the bag of cruddy feelings, not them! You’re the one making yourself sick based on the thoughts and emotions constantly running through your space.

Does forgiveness mean I have to be a doormat? No! But when you can run forgiveness through your body towards someone you are releasing yourself from the karmic debt between the two of you. You are actually setting yourself free. And just because you forgive someone doesn’t mean you have to hang out with him or her. I’ve forgiven many people in my life that I now choose to love from a distance! Let me share an experience.

Approximately eleven years ago I was going through a hellacious life challenge that involved the father of my kids, the court system and my right to raise my daughters as I deemed best and that included my right to home school. The things being said about me were hurtful, ugly lies. It was terrible. I became very angry and I wanted to find revenge. Then I had a life changing experience.

My pastor at the time (now deceased) facilitated a spiritual hypnosis session with me. I honestly don’t recall the words or suggestions he gave, all I remember is my entire body was filled with light. I had a burning sensation start at the top of my head that ran all the way down to my feet. I was enveloped by an incredible sense of awe, peace and love. The only words I’ve ever been able to use that come close to describing what this was like is that I was filled with the Holy Spirit.

I saw all my antagonists standing before me and all I could do was love and forgive them. And at first this kind of pissed me off! I wanted to hold on to the hate and resentments! But that became more painful, it was easier to let go and allow love to flow. I emerged from trance knowing I had changed. And to this day, I’ve never been able to resent anyone for a long time. Do I get angry if treated unfairly? Of course I do! But even when I’ve tried to run hatred through me – and yes – I’ve tried, I can’t do it, it’s just not there. Do I choose to hang out with these people? No, but I can still forgive them. I can also forgive myself for allowing the situation to happen. This sets me free to move forward in my life.

The other day I drove an hour to bring food to my daughters’ dad because he wasn’t feeling well. Eleven years ago I never would have dreamed this would be possible. And I was checking my space to see if I had any remaining resentments inside and realized I was clear. This made me happy because not only was I free – he was too. Mistakes were made by both of us but we had each moved on.

What about you? Are there people you are still resenting? Bad things happen but you owe it to yourself to forgive, let go of the painful past, and move forward in life.

If you truly desire to let go and embrace positive change find someone who can help you with the process. I believe using hypnosis is the most powerful approach because you’ll be in your subconscious mind where all the old uncomfortable feelings are stored. From hypnosis you can release and let go and focus on how you want to be feeling. You can strengthen your mental muscles to think more positively. You deserve to be happy!

Hypnosis is a great modality for entering within your subconscious mind to experience a conscious communion with your higher self.

Communion represents body/being communication. I invite you to listen to the recording I am including in this post and allow yourself to be guided inward. This will be a simple journey of being present with your body. Know you are not the body, nor its thoughts or emotions. You are spirit. Your body is your temple through which you live and dwell to express the greatness you came here to express.

Most often we slip into a state of spiritual amnesia and forget who we truly are – spirit. We get caught up in the dramas of life and begin to believe we don’t have a choice and can’t create change. We create patterns of negative thinking, feeling and acting. The good news is that you can awaken and rise in consciousness. You can create change and end unwanted habits of thinking and behavior. Within you is a New You, waiting to be birthed. It begins with a decision and ends with the experience.

Enjoy!

I remember being told as a child to count my blessings, but the suggestion always had a negative attachment to it; “There are starving people in Africa, you’d better count your blessings you have food to eat every day…you better count your blessings I didn’t ground you for a week after what you just did.” This one always got me; “Your father will be home from work soon and you’d better count your blessings that he’ll be in a good mood.” So for me, counting my blessings was nothing more than pleading to God that some horrific catastrophe wouldn’t strike our lives! This is NOT what this blog post is about.

There is indeed a very positive and very powerful phenomenon that happens when you start to count your blessings; you begin to feel better about yourself and your life – really! To bless means to energize. When you count your blessings you are focusing your mind on all the positive aspects you have in the moment and energizing them, rather than energize all the negative stuff going wrong. Whatever type of thought you think releases a specific physiological response throughout your body.

People who suffer from depression are known to lack a “normal” amount of serotonin in their brain. This is the “feel good” chemical naturally produced in the body. When you think positive thoughts, which is what you are doing when you are putting your attention on all the good things you have going for you, your brain is releasing the corresponding chemical resulting in the overall feeling of peace and well being.

Go ahead and try this right now. Think about something that makes you mad or unhappy and frown while doing so. Notice what you feel. Now think about something that makes you happy and smile at the same time. Notice the difference?

But Debi, I just don’t have anything in my life to bless. Oh really? You’re reading this article right now. Bless your healthy eyes! Bless your ability to know how to read! Start by blessing your physical body and work your way out from there. Do you have a roof over your head? Food to eat? Maybe it’s not the home of your dreams right now, but it’s a start.

I also know it’s easy to say think positive thoughts when the pattern has been to allow the negative self-talk to take dominion over our minds. And, faced with monthly bills, health issues or a broken relationship it can be difficult to consistently find something for which you are thankful. This is where utilizing hypnosis plays a powerful role in creating a healthy new mind-set filled with positive thoughts every day!

All habits, including the habit of negative or positive thinking, is created in the subconscious mind. Think of an old fashioned record where the needle goes around and around in a groove. This is like the pattern of thoughts we entertain. If you have a long running habit of negative self-talk, then attempt to think one positive thought, the needle will bounce right back into the groove which has been energized over and over again. However, you can go into your subconscious mind and from that state, think positive thoughts, and they will be accepted! You will soon create a new habit of healthy thinking.

Still have doubt? This is an exercise I love to do with my clients. Your subconscious mind has all the memory of every experience you’ve ever had, good or bad. Within these experience memories are the emotional feelings attached to the situation. When my client is in trance I have their subconscious mind bring them back to a happy day in their childhood. It is as if they are right there, re-experiencing the day all over again. The feeling of childlike, carefree happiness is very strong. Now we can take that feeling and bring it into the present moment, while they are focusing on the positive aspects of their life. The results are powerful; they are focusing on the present, while feeling a real emotion of happiness. They have created a new imprint which helps them become successful in counting their blessing and thinking positive, prosperous thoughts every day.

Begin right now. Take a moment and start counting your blessings for everything positive in your life. Do this every day and in a very short amount of time, you will notice a vast difference in how you feel about yourself and the world around you. The right use of your mind is the key to healthy, happy, prosperous, successful living.

Love & Blessings to all who wander by to read this!

As we head into the new year I thought it would be fun to re-introduce this exercise for raising prosperity consciousness. Enjoy!

I’ve been pondering on the “New Thought” movement that became popular in the 1800’s. People like Quimby, Holmes, Mary-Baker Eddy (who was actually a student of Quimby), Wattles, Fillmore and the rest. It’s interesting how this collective group of consciousness was downloaded to so many people at about the same time. Now I’m not a historian so no dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s here. But what became known as the New Thought Movement was, to me, a way of thinking introduced on the planet by Jesus. Yes, yes I know people before him were aware of this consciousness. Let’s just say He did a really good job of making a global impact on a new way to think!

Before I became certified in hypnosis I had been a practitioner of metaphysical intuitive awareness. Intellectually I understood how thoughts become things and how we are the creators of our own Universe. But it wasn’t until I dove into the realms of hypnosis and everything that topic held, that I really began to ‘get it’ and started cultivating a prosperity mind-set.

One of my intentions for starting this blog site is to help people foster a new attitude of thinking. I will share my personal journey, which includes times of absolutely no money to enjoying all the fruits this abundant Universe has to offer. To start, I’d like to share a simple exercise that will help you flip your mind from seeing your proverbial cup of life as half empty, to being half full and even overflowing! I call this….. The Prosperity Stroll! Have fun!

Step 1: Grab a piece of paper and a pen

Step 2: Stroll through your life. Begin with your home. Write down everything you own. Everything, from clothing to appliances to entertainment items to food you have in your home right now. Everything.

Step 3: Move outside. Do you have a yard? Write down everything you own in your yard. Do you have a vehicle? Write that down!

Step 4: Write down bank accounts and cash on hand.

Step 5: Next to each item you now have listed, put down the approximate cash value of each thing.

Step 6: Add all the numbers up and see what you get as an approximate cash value of your life, right now.

Most of my clients and students are shocked when they see how much they actually have in present time. We are so conditioned to project our thoughts, desires and dreams out into the future that we miss what we have right now. I encourage you to do the Prosperity Stroll. It’s fun and you will amaze yourself!
