To Thine Own Self Be True

Why do you do, think, believe, as you do? Chances are almost 100% it’s due to outside influence. You are a parrot or what those around you think, believe and do!  I know that’s not the most comfortable statement to accept, but it is, however, true.

We’ve all been trained, for the most part, to react… not to think, experience, engage with new ideas or sights.  Since childhood you’ve known what things are and your whole life experience has been based on that previous knowledge. Rarely do you think about or engage with, anything in a new way.  Only when trying something totally new do you think and experience the situation while paying attention and gaining information in a new way.

Your brain is a recording and retrieving device that constantly brings information to you.  It’s bringing old information too. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down our wonderful brains, I am delighted that I don’t have to relearn basic things each and every day.  BUT when you whole life is a rinse and repeat of previous experience things start getting tricky.

You most likely are one of those people who cry out for change, for different.. yet no matter how hard you try, things remain the same for you, right? Well here is the key to that.  In order to get something new you’ve got to think, feel, do, experience different and that’s hard to do when you are caught up in repetitious living.

Being conscious means you are letting go of the ideas that you’ve had thus far and are knowingly looking at things in a whole new light.  You are willing to release patterns, beliefs and programs that keep you repeating life experiences. Imagine for a moment sitting with a square peg trying to get it to move easily into a round hole.  How long would it take to wear down the sides of the peg?  Would you stay at it long enough to reshape the peg?  Probably not.

The secret here is to look at the task in a new light. Stop repeating the action, move onto a new action or find a way to easily round the sides of the peg.  Take today to rethink your life.  What do you want?  Don’t get stuck in what you feel you need, that just keeps you needy. Define what you want. Now take thoughts and actions in that direction, one step after another.  Release what others have told you and think for yourself. Be free, be happy!

I love you… love yourself well.

Secret to Success is Celebration

I find it funny how much more quickly people share struggles, gossip and problems than seem to celebrate the success of others.  Do you see the energy of that?  What your mind is full of, (mindfulness), the more of that you get to play in.  Why not change things about and invest tons and tons of energy into celebration all the success you see all around you every day?  This is the BIG SECRET!

Because I’ve been in the public eye for ten plus years I’ve had a few folks who felt that they just had to find something about me that they didn’t like. Perhaps I charged for my books or charged for private classes or coaching. That’s actually how I pay my monthly expenses by the way. Big Smile

Thankfully this hasn’t happened often but it was surprising to me when it did happen.  I realized pretty quickly that I could get all bent out of shape over ONE person not liking me or I could Celebrate the Firecrackers out of the many who appreciated what I am and what I do.

Guess which I chose?  You got it.  No matter whether you do big things or little things someone will not be able to celebrate you… so celebrate yourself.  Notice the success all around you.. celebrate it.. knowing that it is just as available for you as it is for anyone.  Fill your mind up with this knowing.. Celebrate..

I love you.. love yourself well..

When People Come Against You

We’ve always had people who didn’t agree with us. Even Bullying isn’t new. Gossip has been around forever too.  With the internet and people being able to hide behind icons and made up user names things have grown to huge proportions. Today it only takes a few minutes for a tale to go all around the globe.

What do YOU do with all these stories?  Do you just jump on the bandwagon rolling by and take part?  What if that gossip is about YOU or someone you care about?  This is the problem with meddling in the business of others.  Personally I am not the least concerned with the private affairs of anyone. I am not interested in who is dating, divorcing or cheating with whom. I have business of my own and enjoy my very exciting and interesting life.

So what about you?  Are you a gossip?  Do you just go along with whatever is being said and share it with anyone who will listen?  I would be so excited to see a world where good stories made the rounds more quickly than gossip.  Can you imagine that?  How awesome that would be.

Now what about when you are the one being talked about?  What do you do?  Because I’ve been in the public eye for several years I’ve had a few tales told about me.  Now and then someone goes to the radio station chat and feels it necessary to type their fears about me for others to see.  I’ve even had a few folks share their dislike of me on social media over the years.

Do those stories have any thing to do with me?  Not really!  Many years ago one of my students carried a signature line on his email that stated a wonderful and empowering truth.  “What others think of me is NONE of my business”!  I love that and repeat it to myself on that rare occasion when someone sees me through their filter of fear. When people react to us the are for the most part not even knowing us, rather they are seeing themselves in us.  That is the reason for all the gossip and anger.  We see our own fear and beauty in others.  We are reflections for one another, like a 3D movie.  We see what we are most involved in energetically with in our own lives.

Free yourself by releasing gossip and fear.  Look for, acknowledge and celebrate the beauty and power within yourself and be amazed at how you begin to notice this all around you.

What Lies On Your Path?

004Sm.jpg

 

What lies on your path?  What shows up as experiences for you to interact with?  Where do these come from? How can I get the life I want to live?

Do you ever ask any of those questions?  I bet you do, I know I have.  What if I told you that every thing, any thing, is possible for you and that the probability is determined by your choice of thought combined with feeling and doing?  Have you heard that before?

2015 is a year of living the “Promised Fulfilled”  for those of us willing to move down the path of disciplined thought and mastery of our own life creations.  This means changing our habits of thoughts.  Rather than being tossed to and fro by the realities of others, we stay mind full of only that which we desire the experience of knowing that it’s already ours.  When you close your eyes and imagine a thing, an experience, you are there with that very thing, its real, it’s done.  When you open your eyes confusion often sets in due to the eyes telling you something different from what you know to be so.

How do we live with the creation before our eyes see it?  By following what we KNOW rather than what our eyes see.  I teach this process in How To Thrive In A Survival Mindset World, available at Amazon, Audible & ITunes,  It’s kindle, print and audio for you.  Decide today to change the way you are thinking.  It’s not just what you think, it’s how you think.  Spend five minutes right now watching that jumbled up chaotic bunch of thinking going on in your head. Use your breathing to slow down the jumbled up thoughts and pick one.  Move gently into that thought.  When everything scrambles up again that’s ok, take a few deep breaths and move back into that ONE thought.  Let that thought guide you to it’s expansion.

Have fun with this process.  We’ll talk about it more as we go on.  Be sure to listen to my radio broadcasts on the Awakened Radio Network.. you can listen with the TuneIn app on your mobile or go to the website http://www.AwakenedRadio.net

WOW another year has come and gone. That was fast!  Most of us are thinking about how we want 2015 to line up for us.  I know I am thinking in those terms.  I’ve started making my list of stuff to do, to experience.  A few more books are on the drawing board for the coming year along with a few courses I’m putting together.  I’ve added a garden and a move to my list too, along with new furniture and new friends.  I love expansion of celebration energy.

I’ve got a few new things going on now for you too.  See the picture above?  It’s a special special for  you.  I don’t do autographed books that often but felt the nudge to put all five of these together in one autographed package to aid you in creating your year your way.  That’s important.  Your way.  Not the way someone tells you it should be, but the way you want to experience your very own life.  It is your life after all and you have the say so about how it lines up for you.  Go to Shift My Beliefs for that great deal. It will open in a new page so you can stay here and take part in something else that awesome!  I’m going all out to inspire you to create on purpose.

OK, here is the next Awesome thing I have for you.  I have 15 audio copies of I Can Fill This Space With Any Thing I Want Consciously Creating Life.  Audible gave them to me for me to give to you.  Audible asks that you leave a review after listening and I ask that you practice the principles in the book in the coming year. Now, how do you get a copy?  Leave me a comment here.  Look where it says, leave a comment, at the end of this post.  Once you do that I will be able to email you with the code for the audio book.  It’s that easy.

Now honestly, the book is not going to jump up and transform your life.  You get to do that.  The book is simply a guideline on how to do it with gusto and fun.  What are you waiting for?  Go ahead and leave a comment.  Say, Hey Donna.. I want a copy!

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.

I love you.. love yourself well…

How To Get The Struggle Out Of Life Wealth The Easy Way

Snapshot_20140809_7

 

Are you tired of struggling?  I know you are.  I hear from people all week long through my social networks and radio show who are just fed up with feeling like rats fighting for crumbs.  You just might be one of those folks who have just had it with all the promises of success through reading a book, or taking a course or attending a webinar.  How much time and money have you invested in things that just don’t work?  Are you ready for success? 

First define wealth for yourself.  That’s a HUGE first step.  What does it mean for you?  Write it down in your journal and feel it.  I’m not talking about just getting emotional about it either.  Feel the reality of it in your bone marrow.  KNOW that nothing is ever withheld from you by Source.  You are the only one with the power to present yourself with experiences.  You’ve lined things up the way they are for a reason.  That reason is to remind you what you are believing into form and show you that you are powerful to create these situations.  Here is the kicker… the same way you get all that struggle is how you get wealth and joy and happiness!

Most often we ask for something because we simply want to escape the feeling we are currently in.  Take time to get honest with yourself about that.  If you are wanting money because you are feeling awful about not having enough money that will only bring about more not having enough. ( Yes I know I rambled with that sentence, I meant to get your attention & it did that big time)  Let’s take another example.  You want a great relationship because you either don’t have a relationship at all and don’t like being uninvolved or the one you are in stinks.  Perhaps you are experiencing dis-ease and crying out for health because you don’t want to be sick anymore.

I get where you are coming from, honestly I do.  I can also promise you that that way of using energy will only result in more of the same stuff you say you don’t want.  Let me give you a walk through of what I’m talking about here.  Look at the top of this page, notice where it says Farm.   That’s a dream of mine.  Now I don’t live there now.  When I drove by it and my daughter texted to find out the price I didn’t have the amount of money in my bank to purchase it.  (That’s not the actual house / prosperity by the way) The actual property has 38 acres, swimming pool, two story four bedroom, 3 bath, formal dining room etc.. nice.. very nice.   Zoe and I made an appointment for a walk through and fell in love with the place.  I instantly knew it was the energy I want to experience for not only my home but the Lady’s Farm Healing Retreat.  I stated that I only needed to sale 100,000 books and we’d move in.  It’s still available too.. we went by the other day.

Anyway here is my big point.  My focus isn’t on not having the $315,000 to purchase it, that keeps it always out there in dream la la land.  My focus in on the experience I want to have.  Living in  that home or one like it, swimming in the pool, riding the horses, entertaining guests, having people, (maybe even you) join me for a weekend or a week of self exploration,  and enjoying the firecrackers out of the experience.  Having the money isn’t the main thing.  The experience of the home, living there, eating there, enjoying myself is the key.  Do you see what I’m talking about here?

Ok, let’s move on.  Struggling is based on not having.  It’s rooted in escaping a situation more than anything else.  I don’t want to get away from the life I have now, I want an expansion of it.  Feel the difference?  Wealth is based on the whole experience, the whole thing.  It’s not about trying to get away from or out of anything, it’s all about moving into a new expression of wonder and fun.  This attitude always allows that what you desire is already possible.  Running to rather than running from makes a monumental difference in the ease of your life.  Struggling with life is always the result of not being clear about what you do want.  It’s based in not enough, lack, hard times.  Running to empowers you through the wisdom that everything you ask for is already yours.  Like the Lady’s Farm, it’s already mine.  I asked, it’s done.  That experience is already there just waiting for me to walk completely into it.  While it’s unfolding I’m enjoying the process.  That process is writing articles, blogs, books, doing my radio shows, videos, cooking, cleaning, sleeping and playing.  In other words I take steps all day long, every day, to be in that experience. 

I have defined wealth for me and it includes health, friendship, money, laughter, helping others, and yes stuff like houses, food, and cars.  I don’t wait until all that is here in my hands to know wealth either.  It’s mine.  NOW!  I enjoy it each moment of each day.  One of the most powerful things you will do for yourself is to take time to define wealth for yourself.  Be honest.  Are you running from or running towards?  That makes the difference.

If you’d like a bit of help check out my Kindle, print and audio books.  I also work privately with folks and you could be one of those people.  See services page and Consciousness Power.
