But How Can I Be Happy When Everything is SO Wrong!


I understand. Really, I do.  I’ve been there and may be there again. Here’s why.  What you are experiencing right now is the residue or left over energy of your last master piece.  Yep, that’s right.  This is what you already created. Now, just release it and stay in the new creation.

First accept that everything in your life is there due to you.  No one is doing anything to you or holding anything from you.  That’s some mighty power you have there!  Now that we’ve got that under our belt simply move on to going within to create what you want.  Use that powerful imagination of yours that you’ve used to create everything else with.  This time use it and master your mind, seeing only what you’ve asked for, knowing that it’s already yours.

Stay in that.  When you senses show you what was rather than what IS, instruct them in the truth! The truth is, that is not how it is anymore.  Then take a few moments to visit again in your imagination how it IS!

That’s the Big Secret!  YOU have the power.  Use it to master your life!

Don’t Let Your Senses Deceive You Any Longer


Chances are you are only seeing what has already been made form through your thinking, believing and feeling.  STOP!

Don’t let your senses deceive you any longer.  What you see is the left overs of thoughts and feelings brought into form on your behalf.  You can have new experiences but you first must release your emotional addiction to what already is.  Think of it this way; what is going on in your life right now is the residue of thoughts you’ve already had and emotions you’ve already felt.  Once you release them they no longer have form.

How do you release them?  Simply by going within your Sacred Space and moving into a new knowing.  We’ve spent years peeling onion layers that only exist because we continue creating them.  STOP!  By now you probably know what  a lot of your beliefs, limits and self doubts are.  Stop entertaining them.  Stop giving life to them.

In your prayer closet, in your mediation, in your Sacred Space know deeply Who You Are.  Feel only that.  Think only that.  Express only that with your words and actions.  This is the path of the Master. 

I’ve written books for you, done hundreds of videos and radio shows for you.  I even offer right here on this website to work with you as your guide.  The next step is yours. Only a few will take up this path.  Only a few will Be a Master.

Will you?

I love you.. love yourself well.

What You Take In As A Feeling You Bring Out As A Condition




Universe within you




Neville Goddard said, “What you take in as a                                                                        feeling you bring out as a condition”.  Perfect!

What does this mean to us today?  Simply put what you think and feel all day long is what your subconscious or G O D brings forth as you waking reality.  That’s why I talk so much about spending time in the Silence.  You can call it prayer or meditation if you like, but spending a large portion of your day here is necessary if you wish to see signs and wonders following you.

After you have felt it, experienced your life within then speak only, think only, that which enhances it.  Think only that which enhances happiness.  Speak and live, have your whole being in the New Truth that has formed in the Sacred Within!

The reason you are still struggling is you don’t understand this.  You haven’t committed to being Master of your thought and feeling.  You will NEVER change the outer with struggle, anger or resistance.  You can understand that you are creating your reality till cows fly, but until you are will to become Master of Your Life and practice the principles of Truth, nothing will change in the way you experience your world and life.

Ask for what you want, stay in the silence experiencing only that.  Accept the situation, live that.  Speak that.  Know that the experiences you are having are only shadows of what you’ve already created with your thought/feeling/knowing to be true activities.

What do you want?  Are you willing to commit to being master of your life?

I’d love to work with you privately.  See the services tab at the top of the page.

Live As Consciousness

What if you are so brilliant that you created the exact experience you are in right now to help yourself remember that the experience you want is within you to bring about?  You actually did just that.  Everything is WITHIN YOU!  You bring it forth.  You are the source of everything.

Now I know that sounds a bit strange but it’s the truth.  There is nothing that is not within you and there is nothing that is not G O D!   That’s everything, the whole of it all. 

So rather than resisting and struggling with what you’ve already created accept that you created it.  Let it be a reminder of what you do want to experience.

Say you are just plain out broke, no money.  The only thing you see is the lack.  Notice the ABUNDANCE of that lack!  See it?  Notice what’s going on here? Where did that experience of so much lack come from?  Within YOU!

You are sick as a dog.  Where is the message?  You want health.  See it?  There it is.. right in front of you. 

Now for the fun part.  Go ahead and live that right now.  Don’t try to think it into form or believe it into form.  Live it.  Celebrate the abundance you see all around you.  Rejoice in the power that is there.  Celebrate health.  Does your toe feel good, then sing a song about it.

Got a dollar?  Give it away?  Help someone who is not able to walk if you can walk.  Live the experience of abundance and health.  Know that as you live AS Consciousness, giving, sharing you are pulling in more to give away.

You are the fountain from which everything flows.. so get with that.  Be that.  ACT as Consciousness!

I love you.. love yourself well.

Let Truth Reveal Itself To You


In this place of not understanding, I am still, waiting for truth to reveal itself!  During my morning meditation that statement came to me and I’d like to share this insight with you.  Imagine you walk into a dark room from the bright light of day.  If you fumble about it’s likely you will run into things, perhaps stubbing your toe or bumping your head.  If you are still for a few moments the light will reveal itself to you and you will be able to make your way to a light switch or candle so that you can easily move about the room.  Giving yourself that few moments of stillness allows your eyes to register the light or truth of the room. 

Whatever situation you find yourself in today stop your moving about.  Cease the panic and chaotic doing for the sake of doing something.  Be still and go within.  In this space think lightly over the problem.  Write down the problem and then allow time for solutions to make themselves known to you.

Your life is created in this within space and mostly it’s done without and awareness on your part or very little.  By taking time to adjust your inner eyes to the energy you are moving in you will be able to see more clearly and recognize the solution when it appears. 

The more distressed you are the more time is necessary in the stillness for you to see your way through to a new experience.  Notice the thoughts you are having.  How are they related to your situation?  Allow yourself to understand the power within you that brings thought into form.  Be honest about your fear, anxiety and stress.  Follow it to it’s root and then make the adjustments necessary to create your dreams.

I love you.. love yourself well.

How To Live An Empowered Life Letting Go Of What You Are Not


Here is the big problem!  Most of us identify more with what we are not than with who we are!  What does that mean? OK, let’s play with it for a few minutes.  Think over your day.  How many times have you said “I am……”? What did you just do?  You identified yourself, you gave meaning to an experience and claimed it as yourself.  That’s big, it’s huge… and it’s limiting.

The truth is that you are creative energy, bringing into form thoughts in order to experience.  You are NOT the experience, rather you are the power that creates them.  Now stop for a few minutes and remember what thoughts, feelings & beliefs you used to bring that experience into form.  Don’t do that again. Smile

That’s very simplistic and I realize that.  However, it’s the way to creating a new experience.  First you must realize the truth.  Stop seeing yourself as every experience and know that you are the creative power behind the experience.  When this is realized you can move into consciously creating life the way you actually want to interact with it.  You stop trying to change things and just go right on ahead making it suit you in every way.  If an experience doesn’t measure up just drop it and create something else.

Self empowerment or self realization is the wisdom of knowing who you are.  This involves letting go of all emotional connection to who you are not.  Living an empowered life is the result of your willingness to let go of emotional memories and every false identity.  When you clear away what you are not… you see yourself as you really are… powerful to create life any way you would enjoy it.

It’s that simple.  You already have the power.. go ahead and exercise it!

I love you… love yourself well,

Stop Living An Automated Life Thank You Tweet Deck


Life is always serving up reminders for me.  I love it when I “get it”.  After a week of dealing with a respiratory infection, which by the way brought it’s own load of reminders which I’ll get to later, I’ve spent a lot of time paying attention.  Noticing is one of my favorite activities.  With the virus there was little else to do than notice so I’ve spent the week looking around and within.  This is the first time I’ve experienced “sick” in many years and I can’t say I much enjoyed it although a lot of healing work and resulting wisdom has come from it.  Anyway, back to the story as I tend to wander around a lot in these blogs posts, and my books now and again too.  Actually I do it on purpose to help you pay attention and not go into automatic mode because your brain starts filling in the blanks before you finish reading, with all those experiences that have come before.  See,  I did it there.. Got your attention didn’t it? 

Here’s the story and the insight.  I logged into my Tweet deck to see what was going on and then had an idea for a tweet of my own.  I typed it in the appropriate space and hit the tweet button.  At once I got a notice that it had not been tweeted as it appeared it was an “automatic tweet”.  What?  How could Twitter be so confused?  I had just sat there and typed the little message.  So I hit Tweet again and it went through.  Good deal..

Now what in the word does this have to do with anything you might be interested in?  Well… how often are you just going through the steps you call life?  Most humans aren’t really living, they are just going through the motions of survival, day in and day out.  We scramble about like mice scurrying to find another crumb of food so we can make it through another day.  Is this all there is to life?  Is this all you want from life?

Be honest with yourself.  Are you really living life the way you want to?  Are you filling each and every day with the experiences you really want to have?  Why not?  What’s keeping you in automatic / reaction mode?  What are those beliefs that you are limiting yourself with?  Since I’ve written quite a few books, thousands of articles, done hundreds of videos and recorded thousands of audio on the topic I want to remind you to go over all that wisdom I’ve already shared with you.  Right now take a few minutes to be still and honest with yourself about your life.  How is it measuring up against the life you want to be living?

Dedicate today to noticing and being honest with yourself.  Pay attention to what is going on in your mind, body and spirit.  Ask Why?  over and over again.  Where did this come from?  Who created this?  What is my role?  Where is my power? What have you done recently that you actually, really, truly wanted to do and enjoyed?  Be true to yourself.  You can create a new experience starting this instant.  You ARE that Powerful!

I love you, love yourself well.
