Predetermine your life experiences. Creating as Creator.

You already predetermine your experiences, mostly, though, you are unaware of what you are creating and how.  Pause for a moment and consider all the time spent worrying, dreading, dreaming up and imagining how life is soon going to be for you.  See the power of that?

That’s how it’s done.  I could stop right here as that is the key.

Take that same principle and use it with the ideas of what you really do desire to experience.  Stop worrying your experiences into place, rather, dream your life into place.  It’s that simple.  It might not feel so easy to start with as you haven’t practiced this way of creating often enough for it to feel natural.  Continue practicing.  Imagine what you desire to experience.  Always go there.  When the mind wanders STOP and go into your imagination and create your desires.

Just keep doing that.  Do it over and over again day in and day out.  No matter what is there for you now, interact lightly with it knowing it’s just a shadow.  Keep your mind fixed on your desires and soon you will begin noticing how your experiences start to change.  Stay the course.

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.

Expand Your Experience Follow the Happy


I love happy.  I write about happy.  I talk about happy.  I follow happy.  Following the fun assures my happy.  How bout you?  Are you actually enjoying your life or just making it through from one day to the next?  I understand how you feel about working to pay bills, take care of responsibilities, etc.  BUT did you know that you can do all those things and enjoy them?  It’s attitude and perspective.  Just last night a young man asked what I did for “work”, to which I replied that I “play at working”.  He told me how lucky I am and I agree.  I’m lucky that I realized a few years ago that I can do what I enjoy and actually have money to do the monthly expenses, eat out, travel etc.

He told me that he was out of work and needed to find a job.  I asked what he loved doing.  After he told me I suggested he start his own business doing just that.  Now get this.. he DID NOT jump up and down with joy at the prospect.. rather he began giving me a list of reasons why he CAN NOT do that.  OK.

It’s all about your outlook.  How are  you seeing things?  Hint here.. what it looks like “out there” is how you are seeing it in your emotions & beliefs.  That’s why it keeps looking like that.  Being happy isn’t hard.  It doesn’t require any thing or any one to show up and do anything either.  It’s a state of mind.  It’s a choice.

Follow the fun, decide on happy.  No matter what’s going on in your life decide on happy.  Watch as new doors open for you bringing even more to celebrate.

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!

If Not For Fear What Would Your Life Be Like?


I did this short recording a bit ago to discuss some insights into how we stay in an unwanted place due to fear of what others may think or say.  How is fear holding you back in life?  If you were not worried that others would think you selfish what would you do for yourself?

Dreams are not lived due to the fear of not being good enough or smart enough.  In order to live your dream you must be more than ready for a change, you must be willing to step into that change.  If not for fear how would your life be different?  What job would you have?  Where would you live, dress, eat?

If there were no limits how big would your life be?  Sit in the silence with that and see where the fear is.  Releasing it can be done once  you identify it.  Is the belief even true?  No?  Then what is the truth? 

What you invest your thinking, feeling and doing energy into is what you will experience.  After finding the truth speak only that, live only that. 

I’ll do another recording on that soon.  I’ve recently written a very short guide book How Can I Be Happy cover

That’s a picture of it.  Use these three steps to discover how you are creating your life experiences and to create a whole new experience for yourself.  Visit my Amazon Author Page for How Can I Be Happy Three Easy Steps To Personal Well Being as well as my other print, kindle and audio books.

Are You Bold Enough To Detox Those Limiting Beliefs?



Are you bold? Do you feel courageous?  You need that to make those big changes you keep saying you want.  You want to be happy, healthy, wealthy, have great relationships.. OK, but are you bold enough to do it?  It will require you ask yourself some questions about beliefs you have held onto as though your life depended on them.  Are you willing to ask, “what if, just what if, everything I think I know about Everything is WRONG?”

Until you detox those limiting beliefs, no matter how dear they are to you.. NOTHING will change.  I’m being honest here.  Over my life time and working with others has confirmed this as truth.  No fountain can bring forth both bitter and sweet water.  You have to decide.  You are the fountain.  What energy flows from you?

I’m talking about more here than just your daily feel good affirmations too.  Spending a few minutes a day getting your emotional fix and investing the other 24 hours with worry, stress, low self esteem and worry.. will not bring about the life you want to live.

I’m talking about going within your prayer closet, or doing your shadow work.  Pick your favorite phrase for it.. but do the work.  I love you.  I want you to be happy, healthy and successful.  That’s why I write books, blogs, do video and radio.  I why I have private students.. I want YOU to live the life you know deep down inside that you can live. I’m willing to be blunt with you to get your attention too.

You’ve spent years wishing and hoping.. you’ve prayed, done your feel good activities and nothing is different.  It can’t be until YOU are different.  That’s why I’m here.. to help YOU be different!

Are you ready?  I’m taking new students right now.  See the Services tab.  Make it happen.  There are three options for you to work with me.  Be Bold.  Pick one.  Follow through!  Read my books, live the wisdom within them.   Read all my blogs, watch all 500 of my videos.  Listen to the thousands of hours of radio broadcasts I’ve done over the years. 

Most importantly… DO YOUR WORK! 

I love you.. love yourself well.
