Little house in the woods on New Year's night

You have the power and the ability to make this year your best one yet. That’s right, and wishing and hoping has nothing to do with it!

It’s not about New Years Resolutions. It’s not about creating goals. It’s not about what you wish and hope will happen. It’s about making a decision and keeping your mind focused on the positive once that decision has been made! What kind of decision you ask? How about deciding to stay more positive in the face of adversity? How about dedicating a few minutes every day for quiet, inner reflection? How about deciding to cancel out the negative chatter before you think those thoughts too long? How about finding five things each day that you’re thankful for? How about doing service work someplace once a month? Decide to do these steps and you will have created your best year yet. The rest of what you want to manifest will easily follow.

Are goals important? Yes! Why? Because you need to have a picture to focus on. Remember, the Universe is a bountiful, gracious, 360º Giver. But it needs a form in which to pour itself into. Imagine a pitcher full of clear refreshing water. You are very thirsty. Won’t that water taste great? The Universe wants to give you this water. But if you don’t have a glass, where will the water go? The same is true with goals. You need to have a clear picture with what you want. “I want to be happy” isn’t a clear picture, there’s no place to pour that water. “I will walk for twenty minutes every morning and I will be happy” is a picture.

The next step is to take some time, each day, to imagine yourself walking those twenty minutes every morning. Really get into it. Imagine you can smell the smells, feel the morning air, hear the sounds and FEEL the happiness! Then, let it go! You’ve just sent your order to the Universe. You’ve wrapped that order with images and feelings (positive emotions). Now the Universe has a form to pour its life-giving energy into. Take time each day to energize this goal, this mock-up, and sooner than you think you’ll find yourself walking for twenty minutes every morning without any effort at all.

How would this apply to a long-term goal? Let’s pretend you want to buy a new car. You don’t know how this will happen, you just know you want a new car. Start looking in magazines for the type of car you want. Cut out pictures and put them on a board that you can see every day. Visit some car dealerships and go on test drives. Get the feeling of this new car. Don’t worry about the when and how it will manifest.

Each day, spend time imagining you have that new car, just like your morning walk exercise. Imagine you’re driving it, feel the excitement, the happiness etc. Then….let it go! Once again, you’ve just sent a powerful picture to the Universe of what you want to bring into your life.

Law of Assumption: Here’s the missing ingredient to the Law of Attraction. Once you’ve taken the time to do the mental work of picturing and feeling what you want, get up and ACT as if you already have it! Pretend your present car is that brand new one. Pretend you have it parked in the driveway or on the street. Don’t allow the thoughts of doubt to creep in. (If you have not yet read and worked with my previous posts on how to let go of the old patterns, I encourage you to do so!) Keep your mind focused on the decision that you made. Then trust that the Universal Giver will honor those thoughts when the timing is best.

Testimony: This is how I got my new car. When I resigned from my church I had to return the company car. That summer I was driving my daughter around in her car because she had knee surgery and couldn’t drive. As I was driving her car I kept wondering what my new car would be. As I was driving her car I kept imagining it was my new car. I did this every time I was driving her car. Less than two months after returning to Berkeley my husband found a car he wanted me to look at: it was the exact car my daughter had; same brand, same make, same everything, just the color was different.

Testimony #2: My husband decided he wanted a new car. I told him to go for it, the Universe would provide. Once he decided to buy the car, I received many new clients and students – the same day he made the decision. See?

You can use this technique to manifest anything: A new place to live, a new office, a relationship, better health. Get a clear picture of what you want. Picture and feel what it’s like to have it, then live each day as if it’s already yours!

Is there work involved? Yes, but if you’ve been working with these posts you’ll discover it isn’t work at all. It’s an exciting journey as you discover your power and ability to create your future starting now!

Blessings to all and Happy New Year!

Green JuiceI’m on the sixth day of a twelve day detox program. This particular cleanse is rather gentle and I’m really enjoying the process. I’m using an herbal/tincture program, drinking lots of fresh juice and eating mostly raw veggies if I get hungry. I usually do some type of internal cleanse with each season. I’m not a perfectionist. I don’t label myself a vegetarian, vegan or anything at all. I simply believe in moderation and choosing the healthy foods that are good for my body. I cleanse when I feel lethargic or heavy from over-indulging, when I desire to end an old habit that no longer serves a positive purpose in my life and when I’m getting ready to take a new step in my personal growth and want a kick-start to get me going. But a physical detox is not what this blog entry is about, however, it is the doorway into the mental detox that I believe is most important.

You’ve heard the saying, ‘you are what you eat’. I believe even more the truth, ‘you are what you think’. Every thought you think creates a physiological response in your body. Until we learn to retrain our brain to consciously think in the positive, we tend to think negative thoughts more readily. This means we get used to feeling negative feelings and just assume it’s the normal way to feel. I work with clients on a daily basis helping them to stop the negative thought process. They are usually quite surprised to become aware of the unconscious negativity flowing through their brain. They are even more surprised when they start to feel better, physically, once the negative mode as stopped.

I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist. As a hypnotist I don’t treat, diagnose or cure. But, as someone who has been practicing, using and teaching the metaphysical/mind sciences for more than thirty years, I DO know how thoughts create things. I DO know how a long-time pattern of running vibrations of anger, hatred, resentment or fear can create a physical ailment in the body. These vibrations create a state of dis-ease in your body, mind and soul. In time, the negative vibrations can nest and manifest as some type of illness. I know from personal experience.

Approximately ten years ago I had shingles. For almost a year. I could barely walk and spent most of my free time on the floor with my feet up on a chair. I never got the rash which is why the shingles went misdiagnosed for so long. I won’t go into the pain I experienced, if you’ve ever had them you already know. When the third neurologist I saw made a guess and said ‘internal shingles on your spinal cord’ (or something like that), gave me medication that cleared all symptoms super fast – I went searching for the mental cause that helped me create and manifest this dis-ease in the first place.

In the book “Heal Your Body” by Louise L. Hay, the mental cause for shingles is: Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Fear and tension. Too sensitive. Wow! Did this make sense to me. For three years prior to this I had been dealing with an extremely stressful personal situation that also involved the welfare of my children. I even remembered thinking and saying to people “I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop”. I was constantly looking over my shoulder, fearful and stressed about what might be happening next. This internal dialogue, mixed with the physical attributes helped to manifest in my body as shingles. Once I knew the mental cause I could work on the energy and cleanse my subconscious mind of those unconscious thought patterns. By the way, the opposite positive affirmation to shingles is: I am relaxed and peaceful because I trust the process of life. All is well in my world.

The Bible says, “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” Matthew 15:11. My understanding of this verse means to watch what we think with our mind and say with our mouth. My teacher used to say the tongue was the most unruly member of the body. Harness our thoughts, watch the words we speak and notice the positive changes that will take place in the body. This is the reason I do my best not to get caught up in too many perfect pictures with what I eat. It’s also the very reason I do my best to watch the thoughts moving through me!

What about you? It’s Spring! Time for rebirth and renewal. Why not do a mental diet to cleanse out the old negative patterns in thinking? By releasing the old vibrations you are opening yourself to receive more positive things from this beautiful, abundant Universe. Here’s a simple exercise to get you started: Wear an elastic band around your wrist. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought or saying something in the negative, give that elastic band a good pull and let it SNAP you! This will help remind you of the decision you’ve made to retrain your brain to release negativity and only think those positive thoughts!  I know you can do this!
