       Ellen DeGeneres once said:  “I am saddened by how people treat one another and how we are so shut off from one another and how we judge one another, when the truth is, we are all one connected thing. We are all from the same exact molecules.” 
     This is not a new belief.  The Buddhist and Hindus believed this also.  They believed that your actions were responsible for the type of life you have, in that your life is the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
     Biologist, Bruce Lipton, author of the Biology of Belief, demonstrated in his research that a person’s perception, not genetic programming, is what spurs all action in the body: It’s actually our beliefs, or our assumed truth, that select our genes which select our behavior.  Human beliefs choose to perceive a positive or negative environment.  If we are victims, we are victims to our beliefs. 
    Recently, Quantum Physicist Bryan Cox, demonstrated, the Non-locality Theory in which a particle really can be in several places at once and moves from one place to another by exploring the entire Universe simultaneously. 
     So everything is connected to everything else.
     Happiness and sadness are different sides of the same coin; so is prosperity and poverty; sickness and health.
     So if your life is not filled with the things you want to experience, the solution is to change your beliefs.
     Romans 12:2 says, “do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
     In order to transform your mind, you start by re-thinking what you believe to be impossible.
     How do you re-think the impossible?
     The First Step according to Arnold Patent, author of The Journey and You Can Have It All, is to make a list of your personal beliefs about the experience you want to change.  It is your beliefs that are clouding your acceptance of the Truth that You are the Power and Presence of God.  Every thought, action, feeling event and circumstance in your life tells you what you believe.  You are to simply feel love for these feelings, and feel love for yourself feeling these feelings. 
      Dream Big!  Life the life you have imagined.
      Remember life is too short to drink cheap champagne!


"Do not go gentle into that good night; find a hill worth dying for and take It ; be the person you're waiting for; make today so awesome, that yesterday gets jealous and above all else do it Your way."

The Ball is in Your Court

The Ball is in Your Court

     One of my favorite quotes is “There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. 
     When it comes to religion many of us have a religious belief that functions more like an interest and not a commitment.  When circumstances permit or are in our favor, we believe that with God all things are possible.  When the circumstances appear to be challenging, we believe that some power other than God is causing havoc in our life.  We then start to search for the perfect formula to success but all we find are complicated strategies.  Everyone has one, including me.  No matter what strategy you choose, every strategy you find starts with the same foundation, belief.  To achieve success, you must build a solid foundation:  What do you believe?
     I believe that everyone has the right to an abundant life that is filled with peace, great health, harmonious relationships and a lot of money.  There is one prerequisite, you have to believe this for yourself.  Mark 11:24 says it best…Therefore, I say unto you.  All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believing that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. 
     We have hypnotized ourselves into believing that there are no problems with our current belief system, but when you look at the demonstration in our lives, we find dis-ease in every form imaginable.   Accept the fact that your belief system has created the life you are experiencing.  If you are experiencing lack or limitation in any form your belief system needs an overhaul.
     I ask you not to abandon your current belief but to allow it to expand.  In this moment push aside the fear of changing and allow your belief to consider the possibility of living a more abundant life.  Starting now, think of every event and encounter as sacred.  Every great comedian states that they look for comedy in every situation; I want you to look for abundance in every situation and you will be pleasantly surprised when you find the face of God in everything.
     Dream Big!  Life the life you have imagined.
      Remember life is too short to drink cheap champagne!

Is Anybody Listening?

Is Anybody Listening?

Sometimes, in spite of your best efforts, beautiful prayers, and endless study, life appears to betray you, forcing you into a “battlefield state of consciousness.” You find you must ready yourself to deal with your worst fears.
Conceivably, it can appear in the form of unemployment, homelessness, divorce, the death of a loved one, etc. Just maybe, this nightmare is a combination many things.  It could even be all of the above. Even though you have made your spiritual quest a priority, it does not take long to see the cold hard facts. This leaves you thinking you are not going to make it.  To keep this feeling of dying a painful death at bay takes all of your energy, leaving you without the strength to forge ahead.

Like a good steward, you quickly pop in the tape of your favorite motivational speaker, pull out your favorite prayer vigil, open a journal and start to grapple with these unwelcome visitors. About sixty days later, you realize you do not seem to be winning.

You have followed all of the advice given by ministers and motivators alike. Yes, all seems in vain. Even God seems to be hiding. So you cry out, “Is ANYBODY listening?”

Abruptly my meditation was broken by the sounds of people jet skiing. Instead of being annoyed, I remembered that “everything is temporary” and I was grateful for the blessing of this real moment, no matter how short.

As you are forced to battle and slay the negative forces and circumstances that are occurring in your life, remember this promise— this too shall pass. Just keep on keeping on. This wonderful universe is listening and the mere fact you are alive is a testament to the fact you are winning in spite of how it appears.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie warns of the danger of a single story and it is at times like these that we find ourselves focusing on the 20% of what is wrong in our lives and giving it our full attention while ignoring and deflating the 80% of our lives that is working.  Life does not give us problems or challenges, it gives us opportunities that are designed to help us to continue to step into our greatness.  
When life presents you with a seemingly impossible opportunity make it an adventure – do the following:  Look at your life six months from now.  What must have happened for you to believe a miracle had occurred?   As the answers are revealed to you, it is now time to start your new adventure today. 

Live the life you’ve imagined.  Dream Big!
Remember life is too short to drink cheap champagne!

The Prosperity Game: Expand Your Imagination and Decrease Your Resistance to Your Prosperity




The Prosperity Game

     In lieu of creating a vision board, my staff and a few close friends starting playing “The Prosperity Game.”  We decided to play the game for thirty days and to record not only our purchases but also our emotions and inner thoughts.  The purpose of the game is to expand your imagination and decrease our resistance to the good the universe has prepared for us and is diligently trying to deliver.  However, because of our resistance, the Universe has been unable to do so.  I was extremely excited and actually thought I would be able to sail through the game without any adverse thoughts.  But this was not the case.
     The first day of the game, my emotions ran the gamut from not having enough money to not knowing what to buy.  When I did make my purchases, I was concerned if I spent my money wisely.  While these emotions caught me by surprise, I was abruptly made aware of areas in my life where my vibration did not match my dreams. 
   Both Mathew (Mathew 7:7) and Luke (Luke 11:9) tell us what we ask for we receive, seek we find and when we knock it will open.  What is not clear are the required steps for asking, seeking and knocking.  During the course of our life, we often ask for prosperity and receive lack, look for health and find illness.  Frantically, we search for answers, any answer.  We look everywhere but manage to overlook our thoughts, the culprit of any dis-ease we experience.  We tend to avoid our thoughts because we want our life to change but we do not want to change. 
     If we are to improve the quality of our demonstrations, we must change our thoughts, our vibrations, and our conversations.  Knowing this is not enough.  After acknowledging the need to change, we must start to demand of ourselves higher standards.  Refuse to participate in conversations that are filled with things you do not want to experience, e.g. sickness, poverty, bad relationships, lack, limitations.  Use your most powerful tool, your thoughts, to create the good you deserve, the good you crave.  Talk about being financially independent, refuse to gossip and more importantly attach only positive statements things to your I AM. 
     The Prosperity Game reminded me that we ask, knock and seek with our feelings, thoughts, and words.  Guard them with care.  Make a commitment to focus on situations, thoughts, and feelings that make you feel good.  This is the key to success.  This is the key to fantastic manifestations.
     Remember, life is too short to drink cheap champagne.
