If you ask yourself the percentage of your day that is spent doing things things are feeling peace, you'll probably have a very low number. There was no way to attract all of these things and experiences that you believe will make you feel good and peaceful if you don't feel it in the present moment. By understanding that the more that you populate your life and daily existence with things that make you feel good the more you will attract things that make you feel good. This is an important foundational lesson if you are to live the life that you really dream.

Change Your Mind....
Stop trying to pretend that negative or bad things are not happening and just "be positive". that will further make your destination one of struggle and of desperation. Instead change your mind about the negative situation or experience and when you do that that's experience or the situation will resolve itself and you will open up to seeing the gift. xxx
I'm Ready for my close-up!
There are a few days that bring much of the population of the earth focusing on a single thing. Of course it's impossible with the diversity of the world for everyone to focus on one thing at one time (especially with all the channels on cable TV!) But there are still a few events and days such as this. Christmas, of course comes to mind, New Year's Eve, certain sporting events and also, in the world of entertainment the night of the Academy Awards. You may not know this, but as a young person I did lots of acting and theatre. Theatre and acting was and still is a passion for me. Being a trained actor, I always watch the Academy Awards every year to see which actors and films have been honored for their work.
I believe the people who we honor as stars, have taken the idea of becoming someone who is starring in their own life very seriously. And it is precisely because they have taken that seriously that we in turn see them as stars. Because they see themselves as stars…
Now, of course we know of the stories of actors and actresses who have not led the healthiest of lives. That is not what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about how they see themselves and because of that, what has manifested in their lives. The point is they see the star in themselves. They have that belief about themselves. They sense the unique and beautiful qualities that only they possess. They see this first and then they allow their star to shine. Then we see it too…
How much are you embracing your inner Star?
How much are you starring in your own life?
Are you waiting for the curtain to go up, so you can finally step into the light?
Are you rehearsing for the time when you REALLY need to shine?
Is fear holding you back from being the star of your life?
Do you have a block against shining your light in the world?
Do you believe that the people who shine are self-centered or selfish?
Well, I am here to remind you that the movie of your life started the day you came here. The film crew is always filming. The most incredible thing is that you are not only the star of your own movie. But you are the director, the casting agent and most powerfully…you are the writer.
If you don't like the role that you've written for yourself so far in life, rewrite it and change your role.
If you don't like the cast of characters you have hired to be in your life, change the cast and audition new ones.
If you don't like that your life has become a drama and you thought that it would be more of a romantic comedy, rewrite your story…
There is no time to waste in living the life your heart yearns to live. The movie has already started, but you can always create the most incredible and exciting of plot twists you choose from here on out!
In my training as an actor I was taught that “There are no small parts, only small actors” which means that whatever role you are playing, you are meant to look at that role as being the star of the play. I was taught to look at it like all the elements of the story and the relationships revolve around the character that you are cast as. When an actor does that, they bring a depth and uniqueness to the character, a character which could have meant nothing at all in the scheme of the play as a whole, but suddenly is noticed and stands out to the audience. As opposed to the actor saying “Well this is just a five lines and it’s not the starring role” then the actor just walks through the part and no one even remembers them.
You have cast yourself in your life as a certain role. You can either cast yourself as an important and vital role of the whole film of your life, or you can cast yourself as a minor walk on character. Your choice…
The time is now to step out into the light and be the STAR you came here to be.
If you start now, by next year you may hear “...and the winner is…YOU!”
Say YES if you will begin STARRING in your life today! XXX

When it comes to the law of attraction, many of us get
confused. Many of us believe that the law of attraction is about attracting things. While getting very clear and attracting the things that we want is important, what we really need to understand is that it's the feelings behind the things that is the most important.
You see inside of all of us we have a very specific & highly individualized guidance system. That guidance system is based on our feelings. Our feelings will always tell us what feels good for us. What feels good for us will be our own specific things, places or experiences. Those things, places, or experiences are not necessarily what someone else would feel good having.
For example, as many of you know I have a few things that make me feel joy or make me feel really good. Like, for some reason Marie Osmond brings me joy!
Now, I know I may be in a minority of people that feel joy from Marie Osmond. But I LOVE her! I have loved her since I was a little boy and I still am moved by her and her energy and spirit. Other people will not understand this connection I have with Marie, but that is none of my business. My business is to connect with my joy inwhatever form that takes. As soon as I identify what brings me joy, I take action on in the world. I watch Marie videos, I follow her Twitter, I listen to her music and whatever makes me feel good. Once I do that and follow this internal guidance system
that I have within me then more things that bring me joy come into my life.
This is what I teach my students: that knowing what brings you joy is the most
important thing on your path in life. Once you know what brings you joy, you
can then take small action steps towards experiencing more of that thing.
I want you to hear this very clearly: it is not always about the big things
that we want in life, it is about consistently going for those little or maybe
silly things that bring you joy that will change your life. Like me following
my internal guidance with Marie Osmond, has brought many many more joyous
things than just the experience of Marie Osmond.
When we do this over and over and over again in our lives in any area of our
lives, we begin to shift our point of attraction. And then our point of
attraction becomes all the things that bring us joy and make us feel good. When
we are doing this consistently the law of attraction brings as more of those
things and even things we didn't even know brought us joy, because that's what
it's responding to. Once that happens then you're living in the flow of life.
So, whenever you decide to attract something that you think that you want, make
sure that you connect with the feelings of that thing and the basis of that
And indulge yourself in the small and maybe silly things that bring you joy.
Who or what is your Marie Osmond?
Creating a Life...
As we walk through our lives are we aware how much we are actually creating? For example: are we aware that the decision to get up in the morning sets up whole powerful series of events that we are on some level creating? Heck even the decision to get up is a creation.
Let’s break that down: A decision is a creative act. Every time that we make a decision we are creating circumstances which create outcomes which create feelings and more than likely those feeling that we create from that decision colour our future decisions which starts the creative process all over again. When we create it is a divine process in the sense that it is a process that involves energy and energy is what the divine is made of. When we create we are co-creating with the powers of the Universe. (MORE ABOUT DECISIONS IN PREVIOUS BLOG "Decisions, Decisions.." Below)
There is no way in the world that we can make every single decision consciously, but we can begin to be acutely aware of the decisions that we are making in order to create things , circumstances and experiences that support us rather than those that keep us stuck, frustrated or feeling bad. The process of becoming a conscious creator of our lives requires a few things: awareness, honesty, consistency and love.
First we have to begin to be aware of the things that we are creating in our lives. Once we are aware of what we are creating then we have to be honest with ourselves in terms of those things. We are creating many good things that support us and our world, but we are also creating those things that do not do those things. Many times when we are honest and look at what we are creating that isn't supportive, loving and good it is because there is a deep belief that we are unconsciously using as our reason for creating these things, experiences and feelings. It is when we face those shadow beliefs that we don't want to look at, that the authentic you begins to emerge. Once that begins to happen there becomes a kind of peace, flow and power in our lives. It is when we look at those shadow beliefs that are colouring our creations that start a deep and meaningful road to becoming a conscious creator of our lives. From there we become free to hear our real inner voice and create from that place.
When we get to that point where we clearly see the shadow in any area of our lives, then we need to have a kind of never ending consistency of shifting the shadow belief. That belief that has been dictating our creations doesn't just vanish when we see it clearly and honestly, although the acknowledgement is HUGE in shifting our vibration towards our authentic selves. What we need to do is to be consistent and I would say almost vigilant in being aware how those beliefs keep cropping up in our lives. And it is in that awareness that we can shift the shadow by saying "Thank You for sharing, but I will listen to my Spirit” At first this consistency will seem extremely difficult, but as we go through shifting these beliefs it becomes easier and easier until there will come a time when we can't even remember not having the new belief.
All of this work around becoming a conscious creator is extremely powerful, but I believe that the only way to shift the shadow beliefs that are dictating our creations on a real, fundamental level is to do this with LOVE for ourselves. For it is through the amazing power of LOVE that authentic change happens. The energetic vibration of LOVE is key to everything and I mean EVERYTHING.
If we do this shadow work from a place of "I SHOULD" "I MUST" or anything else that our ego is telling us, it may work for a little while, but true lasting changes towards our overall harmony with life will not happen.
When we begin on the road to becoming conscious creators from a PLACE of LOVE then the journey to peace, happiness and harmony with ourselves, our world and Spirit is a magical and exciting ride. Then we start to manifest abundance, success and joy almost unconsciously. It will become a natural flow of who we are.
I do have to say this in terms of becoming a conscious creator; Becoming conscious creators of our lives doesn't mean that life will be all roses and easy every step of the way. Life is meant to bring us to our highest good at all times and sometimes that means that, for the lack of a better word, "stuff" happens. Many times people (myself included) have the impression that once we learn the process of being deliberate creators of our lives and we begin to see how powerful it is, then "bad" things won't happen. That is not true. The “stuff” as I said before is meant to lift us higher, or as I like to think of it, becoming deeper people. It is from this new perspective of ourselves that the “stuff” won't rock us to our core, because we have begun to create a real and lasting foundation through awareness, honesty, consistency and love.
One of my all-time favorite films in the last few years has been "Under the Tuscan Sun". If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. If you have seen that you might know the story I'm about to tell. The story is about a woman whose life falls apart, and how she begins to build her life back up in a way that's much more in line with her spirit. This is all set with the beautiful backdrop of Tuscany Italy. What's not to like about this film...?
In the film there are so many life lessons, law of attraction principles and how Angels, human or not guide us through our lives. I am not going to do a review of the film here, because obviously I do not have a subjective opinion. Just see the film.
What I want to illuminate here is one story in the film. The main character moves to Tuscany after a surprising and devastating divorce. When she gets to Italy there is an undercurrent of a need to have a man substantiate her existence. She In fact ends up meeting a man. This relationship never totally works out. And here comes the point I want to make for you. There is a character in the movie who is the wise sage woman. The main character comes to her house one day and sage woman says "what Are you so sad about? Why do you keep thinking about him?" The main character doesn't even really know what she's talking about. The sage woman tells a wonderful story about ladybugs and goes on to say "Go work on your house and forget about it!"
And she does. She takes her strong focus away from getting the man and having the man satisfy her fulfillment of herself. She works diligently on our home and forgets about it. I'm sure that you know what ends up happening. That man never comes back but, another one comes into her life which is completely unexpected. The lesson here is that she let go of her grip that something other than her own satisfaction of her life will fulfill her. Once she did that, she got what she wanted. It wasn't the form in which she thought it should be. In this case the man that she was so focused on, instead she got a better match for herself.
The reason that I tell you the story is to ask yourself what you are gripping on so tight that you want to attract into your life, but you're not giving it room to come in? I know that when I work with clients and for myself that when the grip is so tight on something we think that we want we feel that we have to give it all our attention and focus.
Now this might seem contradictory to some of the law of attraction principles of focusing continuously on what you want. But, hear me very clearly here when focusing on what we want is coming from a place of need, then it possibly will never happen or manifest in our lives. If what you want is a true vibrational match for your highest good and is aligned with your spirit and not your ego, then there is no need to continue focusing on it in an almost desperate way. Just be clear about what it is and feel good about it. Feeling good about it and going about your life, opens up the grip so that there is room for it to manifest in your life.
By the way, I've been telling this story over and over to clients and to people I know. I would repeat this lesson and say the line "Go work on the house and forget about it!" I have said it so many times over the last few months. In that same time I have been in a place of tightness around my business. I have been holding on with the grip very tight to make my business more successful.
Guess what? I have been vibrating "working on the house and forgetting about it" And because I was putting the vibration out there by saying it over and over, circumstances have worked themselves out that in the last month, I have had to be at my Dads house... I have had to "Work on the house and forget about it!" In my case my forgetting about my business. Guess what again??? My business is opening up and opportunities are presenting themselves that I never even planned!
So, today go work on the house and forget about it!
Watch the scene from the movie here:
Newsflash: all the things that are not working in your life, are the things that are going to bring you to the most peace and the most joy and the most love possibly the most success. Now, this seems contradictory to what you may believe or definitely what you want to do. But, I want you to start to think about all the things that are not working or that feel really bad in your life. Common wisdom may say not to look at those things and just keep looking towards what you want to create in your life, in any area of your life. Common wisdom will say if you keep your "Eye on the prize" you will achieve it. And in some ways that is true. Having a clear vision of what you want in any area of your life that will bring you the most joy the most peace or the most success is vitally important. But, what most of us don't realize is that looking at what's not working will get you more clear about where you are going.
It is very common in the self-help and new thought community, to stay positive and only look at what's working. This philosophy encourages walking through the world with a rose-colored glasses on. We know that walking through the world with rose-colored glasses on is not the best way to your goals or your success or your peace. It only encourages the things that you're not looking at come back at some point and slap you in the face. That is why only staying "positive" will only get you so far. The reason that It will only get you so far, is because life will always bring up challenges or things you don't want. That is the nature of living in this three dimensional world. If you ignore or push against those things that you don't like or make you feel bad, you are not really living life. The things that aren't working or that seem to be your problems actually are the things that will help you to get more clear about what you do want and if you stick with it eventually your success.
"How is that?" you say. "How can I look at what's not working, and still be positive?" And here is the answer: by looking at what you don't want or what makes you feel bad very briefly. If you can look at what's not working in your life briefly and constructively it will give you all the clues of what you do want and it will bring you into the vibration of what you do want so you can let go of the negative vibration of the problem. Once again, the keyword here is to look at those things "briefly".
. The most important thing is that you be honest with yourself and see that they're not working and to take those things as a guide post to help you to get more clear about what you do want. Those things you don't want are not problems. They are guideposts which are helping you in every way. If you can start to do this, you will end up being more positive. I guarantee it. Because when you face the things that aren't working and shift them being a block for you, they will become your point of freedom.
If you are new to this way of thinking and being, it will take practice. It will take some diligence on your part to remind yourself that the problem that you have ascribed as a problem, is only there to help you to get to where you really do want.
You might say that this is the basis of making lemonade out of lemons. Let's face it, if you don't even see that there are lemons there you can never make lemonade, right? Think about it, if there were a ton of lemons in front of your door blocking you to get out, and you knew that behind that door was everything that you needed for your life, you would look at those lemons and quickly figure out a way to cut them up, make them smaller and shift them so that you could get out the door, right? You wouldn't, on the other hand sit there and stare at the pile of lemons and fret and wonder and keep looking at them over and over and over again. Your survival instinct would kick in and realize you need to look at these lemons very briefly and shift them so you could get out the door!
This philosophy has been around for a very long time. It is nothing new. But, very few people are in the practice of being able to do this. I want you to be able to do this moment to moment and day today in your life... all the time.
I have all the faith in you, that you will be able to open up a very successful lemonade stand very soon! From then on life will be a bowl of cherries… Or lemons… Haha!
