“You have power over your own mind – not over events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
When I applied this quote to my life, I gained the ability not only to stay calm when my circumstances seemed overwhelming, but to use a simple shift in my thoughts to turn serious problems into unappreciated blessings.
Have you ever had a day when you felt irritated, stressed and strained, and every little thing that happened seemed to make it worse?
People around the world, especially Americans, often report feeling overwhelmed by busy-ness. We’re surrounded by electronics, opportunities, choices and information, all coming at us at high speed, and sometimes our brains struggle to sort through the deluge.
People today have to make more decisions in 24 hours than our ancestors did in a year. Even little things, like buying a pair of athletic shoes, are more complicated than they used to be,…
Mother Teresa once said,
We can do no great things; we can do only small things with great love.
What this woman practiced absolutely transformed the thinking of many, many millions of people on this planet, about what a difference one person can make.
So today, go into everything you’re doing, every conversation you have, and seek – not to do great things – but to do small things, with great love.
Have you ever paused to think that you are really a human being, and not a human “doing”?
Today is an invitation for you to pause in your normal activity, to set aside your “to do list” and enter deeply into the magnificent feeling of your “being-ness.”
Today is an opportunity to be available to life as it flows through you. Be available to the mystery today.
Be available to the awe, rapture and wonder of your own aliveness.
Experience the colors that are around you, the sounds, and notice how everything…
Happy New Year!
To celebrate the start of a new year, I have a special gift for you: a simple practice that completely changed my life, and enabled me to stay happy, focused, positive, and on track toward my dreams.
You see, I used to find it easy to get sidetracked from my dreams. One moment, I’d be creating a life I loved… and the next, I’d slip into negativity and self-sabotaging thoughts, or get distracted and lose an hour that I’d planned to spend working toward my goals.
When I mastered this simple…
Many of us spend the holiday season giving to others, sharing our love, and enjoying it… but we don’t always take the time to take care of ourselves and our own hopes and dreams!
As a result, some of us end up feeling let down, tired, and unprepared to manifest our dreams in the New Year. I felt that way for a long time… but then I discovered something that changed my life, and I want to share it with you!
In this video, I reveal a simple technique that I’ve used for years…
A garden is the ultimate metaphor for your life plan and with the right seeds, your dreams can be planted, tended, and cared for, giving you a life you would love living!
The power to manifest great dreams is available to everyone since it lies in the power of your own thoughts to shape your reality.
You don’t need a green thumb or magic garden shears; you just need to understand the importance of creating and focusing on the right thoughts (or seeds).
Let’s spend a moment really deeply contacting the real Self.
The Self that is the I am that is breathing you. It is the I am that you are before you took on this human birth, and after you lay this human body down for the last time.
For a moment, take a deep breath with me. Inhale… exhale… and as you breathe, just notice your body.
Feel the weight of your clothing and the air touching your exposed skin.
Now for a moment, notice your thinking.
