What is YOUR Return on Energy? ROE Always Reflects your Attention Investment


In the business world ROI is a big deal.  You want to make sure that you are getting back more time/money than it’s costing you to do business.  That makes a lot of sense too.  As a writer and radio broadcaster I like to see that I’m making progress by having more sales and more listeners. 

In life your Main Business is the life you are living.  What does ROI have to do with you?  I’ve changed it about a bit to ROE, Return On Energy.  Your life always reflects the energy you invest in it.  If your investment is anxiety, stress, fear and anger that’s your return.  That’s why I write and talk so much about beliefs and thoughts.  Those are indicators of the energy you are investing in your life.  You always get a return and it’s always more than you set into motion.

Most of the time, most of the people are living from memory.. the emotional reaction phase that we call beliefs.  There is nothing new here as it’s all a repeat of what’s been felt before.  In order to move into a new experience your energy investment must be the IDEAL of the experience.

What do I mean?  Quite simply that your thoughts and feelings are prophesy of what is sure to come unless you change focus and energy investment.  Let’s play with this for a few moments.

Let’s say you are struggling with not enough money.  You are all caught up in the idea of there not being enough money.  You are worrying that if you don’t get more money your power or phone will be cut off.  Round and round it goes in your head and your emotions.  The more you think it the more you feel it, the more you are investing in that experience.!!!!!  Smile

Now for another option.  Same situation just a different interaction with it.  You notice those thoughts.  You call them for what they are.. emotional memories of past experiences that you didn’t enjoy and don’t want to go through again.  Trace those thoughts to their root.  Where did it start?  What belief (limit, lie) did you accept as truth?  Be willing to release it. 

Look for the truth and stay focused on that.  Truth = there is only abundance.  Money is everywhere.. heck we have multiple printing machines making the stuff all the time. “Smile

Accept that you have been living in lies, laugh and giggle a few times.  This releases some chemicals that actually help this process.  You might even want to dance around a bit too.. have some fun.

Be grateful for the experiences.. all of them.  Each has been a reminder to you about how you create.  Laugh some more.  Choose the truth.  You are loved.  You are worthy.  You are powerful.  Source always has your back.  Stay there in that energy.

Now watch the magic happen!

I love you.. love yourself well..

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



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.

Filling Life With Survival Or Thrival Energy How To Be Happy And Celebrate Living


I talk with a lot of people every week.  I am on several social media sites and see the anger, frustration and general unhappiness of so many wonderful people who don’t understand why and how their lives are the way they are.  Honestly I don’t enjoy struggling and wrestling with life and that’s the very reason I’ve spent 50 years asking for answers to some very important questions.  Being raised in the Baptist church I heard all the sweet bye and bye tales and honestly, even as a child it sounded like poo poo to me.  Asking questions from preachers about why we weren’t following Jesus’s notice of, “All that I’ve done and even greater than this shall ye do also” didn’t make me very popular either.  I was born to debate these silly superstitions of being tested, tried, and having to wait till I got to heaven to be healthy, happy and successful. 

Today we have a lot of so called law of attraction,  get rich quick schemes and schemers who either don’t know better or don’t care if they mislead people, teaching a recycled version of the religious dogma so many have decided to move away from, but are still trapped by such stuff as “being the vibration of, attracting,” etc.  It’s time for some real wisdom and how to talk that actually works.  You don’t have to become anything.  You already are.  You’ve just covered it all up with all the stuff you are not.  My joy is working with people to help uncover the self from all the lies and self deceit.

You are told to change your thinking.  You are directed to live from your heart.  All that sounds great too.  But does it work?  You aren’t changing anything at all by staying in  your thought/beliefs/programs and your emotions.  Unless you install a new operating system nothing will change. Period.  So many of you are trying to force old beliefs to create something new.  It will NOT work. 

My best advice to you as an author, teacher, radio host, mentor and divine being is to STOP trying to change any danged thing and find out how you create.  Then create what you want to experience!  That’s the answer.  It’s simple, sweet, direct and most importantly it works. 

Do you really KNOW Who You ARE?  Get out of intellectual spirituality and emotional spirituality and dive into experiential spirituality.  Head on over to WISDOM!  In all thy getting, get understanding.. in other words all that gathering of  information that you are memorizing and regurgitating, sit in the silence with it until you understand it and are living it.  Those are strong words, but it’s time for us to stop pussy-footing.  You either want to be happy, healthy, and successful or you don’t.  It’s time to choose.  You can move into knowing who you are and living that or continuing to live a small, frightened and dissatisfying life.    What do you want?  There it is, pure and simple.  What DO YOU WANT?

As in all my books, articles, teachings and videos.. I want to be of help to you.  I will not tickle  your ears with what you want to hear to ease your pain.  I will point out the reason for your pain and give you the tools to move past it into the life you deserve and want to live.  In my new book, just release, “I Can Fill This Space With Any Thing I Want; Consciously Creating Life” I do just that.   As I finished the last read through I was amazed at the powerful information in this book, and I typed it all down.  I asked, I was answered.  You asked, You are answered.  Now it’s up to you what you do next.  You can keep making excuses or take a step in the direction of the life you say you want.  I’ll help.  I’ll keep writing, doing radio shows where I teach these principles and publishing books.  I’ll even work one on one with a few of you.  BUT you are the one who decides your life.

Surviving Frustration on the Way to Learning To Thrive



“Now you see why you feel so frustrated.  You are trying to change what’s already been created on the outside without doing any of the really important inner work.  Page 69 “How To Thrive In A Survival Mindset World” by Donna DeVane

Do you get that statement?  How does it feel?  Do you recognize yourself in the struggle of trying to force what already is to be something different?  Putting it like that helps you to realize how silly it is to exert all that emotion trying to force what you’ve already created to become something different. 

One of the reasons I wrote the book and teach from it so often is I know the struggle to survive.  I’ve done it. I know about all those days filled with dread when the phone rings or wondering if the lights will work when I flip the switch.  That’s the struggle mindset.  It creates more from the energy of worry, dread, stress and fear.

Now we move over to thriving and instantly recognize how much lighter we feel and how hope fills the heart.  As we cease struggling we become more aware of the beliefs, thoughts and actions that created all that mess we don’t like and can slow down long enough to figure out a few things. 

In order to really get into the groove and thriving you only need to begin noticing everything in abundance.  There is nothing to force.  Abundance is all there is.  Take note of what you would like the experience of.  Think there, play there, take actions in that energy.  Now matter what is going on around you stop trying to fix it.  Create where you are right now.

In my new book that will be out soon I give this advice,
“Do What you love

Love What you do

See it done

See it through”!

Even as you are asking Source is lining that up for you… so let your thoughts be seed of the harvest you will enjoy.

I’d love to hear from you .  Leave me a comment.  Take a look around the website.  Discover how you can help form the experience of Donna’s Lady Healing Farm.. just by writing a book review.  You could also win some great prizes.

You Can Stop Struggling To Survive And Be Happy

Are you ready to Be Happy?


Each time someone contacts me for coaching or healing work I always ask, “are you ready”.  Why do I ask that?  Simply because a lot of people are not ready to let go of their identity as a victim and move into a new happier experience.  There is nothing I can do for those folks.  BUT!!!  if you are ready I can help you with some tips, tricks and insights that will set you on the course for your own success as you move from struggle to thriving.  You can be happy, you can stop struggling.  I know it.  Do you? 

Of course you can stay right where you are and never give up those limiting beliefs and that false identity.  But if you are ready to move past the past (a funny) and let yourself experience a new aspect of yourself, you can do that too.  Since it’s all an illusion it doesn’t matter one way or the other unless you say it does.  That’s how powerful you are.  I thought I’d throw that in right at the start today to give you something to think about.  You really are so powerful that you can set up a load of limits or release the illusion to fly with the eagles.  It’s your choice.
