Thank You Cards, Lists and Numbers

"Let's feel the magic of those two little, big words "thank you."

-Ardath Rodale

Practicing the habit of saying thank you or sending thank you cards is one way to harness the incredible power of the law of gratitude and the law of cause and effect. Learn to say thank you as often as you can. For big things, and small. When you do, you consciously and subconsciously send a message to the universe that you are aware that you have received good (all things can be good, no matter how bad they may seem). This helps to keep you in a positive state, a higher vibration, one of gratitude, optimism, and abundance.

When we say thank you, we are reminded of the good that comes our way, that good things do happen to us every day, that we are blessed, loved and protected and provided for. That everything we need will come to us, that we are already connected to it.

Additionally, it has wonderful effects on the people who receive our words of gratitude. We help to raise their vibration and makes them realize their efforts are noted and appreciated. This in effect will continue the chain of giving and receiving and the higher vibrations of living in a state of gratitude.

Here are some great suggestions, make a list of 25 things that you are grateful for, send thank you cards to people who have done nice things for you in the past, or spend the day saying thank you to all the kindness that comes your way, at the end of the day, count those "thank you"s and just watch in awe how truly blessed you are. They will increase just by the fact that you are directing your attention to them and by law, via the law of attraction and vibration, more blessings will come your way.

Enjoy your blessed new year, happy 2008!

Your Inner Self: Know Your Worth

"It is man's foremost duty to awaken the understanding of the inner Self and to know his real inner greatness. Once he knows his true worth, he can know the worth of others."

- Swami Muktanananda

You are amazing, original, creative and the one and only you. You have unique thoughts, creative energy, abilities and creative powers, you have so much to offer everyone in your life, you are able to give so much back. Sometimes we feel lost, or do not fully love yourselves or recognize the true life purpose and creative powers that we have access to. That is when we are unfulfilled, empty or not fully expressing ourselves. Knowing ourselves, increasing awareness and working towards our intentions, our life purpose is our single most greatest responsibility during our life on this planet. Whatever your gifts are, your passions, your creative powers and desires, endeavour to find them, live them and give them.

The Ordinary Can Become the Extraordinary

When you live in harmony with the law of attraction and other universal laws, you can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.......

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be do. One day I shall dig my nails into earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."

- Mary Jean Iron

I love to feel the blessings of an ordinary day, when I do, I feel so much more joy and fulfillment. I feel the love and gratitude flowing through me, then the day becomes extraordinary. And you know what, that is when the magic happens, things just turn out better, "lucky" things happen. But in reality it is the universal laws at work, the law of gratitude, law of attraction and the law of cause and effect. Focus on what you can give back to the world, and you will be rewarded.

Choose Gratefulness In Spite of Your Current Results

"As you wander on through life, sister/brother, whatever be your goal, keep your eye upon the donut, and not upon the hole."

-Sign up in the Mayflower Coffee shop, Chicago

Learn to enjoy the journey, not just the destination. Your sense of gratitude can keep you going, in spite of your current situation or results. When you live and stay connected, through continuous gratitude, your life improves, changes, and you become effective and efficient at harnessing the power of the law of attraction and other universal laws.

There is something very special about living in gratitude and acting as if, we can experience anything we desire, in spite of your current results. Each of us has our trials and tribulations, when we learn to feel grateful for everything, even our challenges, the world begins to bend around us. It is really all about how you decide to look at things and where choose to direct your attention to.

Today, take an opportunity to focus on all the good things that happen to you and all the good things in your life. Tonight as you drift off to sleep, quietly say thank you for each and everything good thing in your day and life. You will feel so much more alive.

Our Attitudes Determine Everything!

Our attitudes determine our results, who we attract to us and how we live. Why not choose to live with an abundant attitude, one that thinks, feels and acts as if the Universe is abundant and there is only infinite opportunities and possibilities.

As we grow, or develop in mind, body and soul, as we become more self aware of our life purpose, goals and passions we recognize one of our spiritual responsbilities is to move into one-ness with the universe/God, our higher power. With this we move beyond living in an emotional reactive way to challenges in life to cultivating positive emotions as our habits. We learn to respond as opposed to react. We remain steadfast in our vision, focus and goals no matter what happens. We have a knowing that everything we need is already here or will come to us, that we can tackle anything that comes our way. We simply live as if life is meant to be abundant and that abundance is already here, we are already connected to it.

What this means is we learn to love even when we don't feel love, we are kind and generous, even when we would ordinarily complain or hoard, and we hold an image of abundance and never focus on lack or what we do not presently have, we live in a continous state of gratitude, even if we wouldn't ordinarily feel particularly thankful. Successful people, make feeling love, joy, optimism, hope, abundance and gratitude their way of being, their habit. After gaining a conscious awareness and with some work overcoming the conditioning that they grew up with, they make thinking, feeling and acting with an abundant attitude their life and way of living.

Our attitudes are our mental stances, they determine everything that comes to us, everyone we attract and they ultimately determine our results. Our attitudes are the glasses from which we view the universe and see the world. Do we see abundance, love and joy or do we see lack, poverty and fear? We can change the way we see the world by changing our thinking, by cultivating a positive attitude. When we live in joy, acquire hope, see only abundance and possibility, we begin to remake our world and we can literally change our conditions, our results and our place, simply because our attitudes have changed. My favorite quote from Dr. Dyer says is all, "Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change."

Additionally, the tremendous benefit of living with an abundant attitude, in faith and gratitude is that it keeps us connected to the universe and all that is providing. It is the recognition of this connection that is often the point of illumination and time when one opens up to the flow of abundance, the more grateful we are, the more of an abundance sense of life we will experience.

The more you cultivate the abundant attitude, even if you don't feel it, the more you consciously improve or change your attitude, the more you will feel it. The more loving we feel, the more love we receive, the more giving we are, the more that is given to us, the more abundant and successful we feel, the more success will be attracted to us, the healthier we feel, the more health and vitality we will experience. The more thankful we are, the more we experience the joys and richness of spirit that grateful feelings produce.

Focus on Optimal Health

What you focus on expands.... why not focus on abundant and optimal health for the new year!

Just about everyone wants to feel better, have more energy, lose weight, get more strength or endurance or improve their current physical fitness levels. That can be easily achieved with appropriate thinking, goal setting, and taking action.

Open Your Soul, Heart and Mind: Be an Artist of Life

Open up your soul, your mind and your heart to allowing and recieving by living in a constant state of gratitude.

I love this quote:
" The most invisible creators I know of are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible---without brush, hammer, clay or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt--their medium is their being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see and don't have to draw. They are artists of being alive."

-J. Stone

Living in the Sunlight

"The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be."
-Shakti Gawain

We can use the law of gratitude to attract people and good relationships to us. When we are thankful, we exude happiness, health, success and love, and that according to the law of attraction makes us a magnet for other people to be drawn to us. This happens at a subconscious level, as we attract that what we think about. When we are focused on all of our blessings, here and those that are coming to us, we attract more blessings and abundance to us. This includes people, opportunities and the right relationships.

Additionally, gratitude not only pulls people in towards us, it helps us to keep those people who are already part of our world. When we focus on what we have, we tend to notice our abundance and not our lack. Our thought patterns develop into an abundant attitude and we passively and effortlessly begin to attract more of that which we desire, as opposed to those who focus on what is missing, what is lacking, they only attract more of that which is lacking. When we express this gratitude for those people in our lives and notice all the great services they provide to us, we will continue to keep these people in our lives and engage to build and develop those relationships to still stronger and deeper ones. People will want to keep us in their lives and will continuously be magnetically attracted to us.

Gratitude is an inner light that we can use to iluminate our souls. The more we are thankful for, the more light we experience and the more our souls shine out to the world.

I am grateful for the opportunity to post this powerful message today and grateful that you are reading it!

Gratitude Promotes Optimal Health and Healing

"Feelings of gratitude release positive endorphins throughout the body, creating health."
- Sharon Huffman

Recent scientific literature has begun to illustrate that positive feelings, feelings of love, joy and gratitude do have a positive effect on our health and ability to self heal. These strong, positive feelings do so by enhancing the immune system which then enables the body to resist disease and recover more quickly from illness and injury. Not only does our immune system get stronger, but these positive feelings also release endorphins into our blood stream which are the body's natural pain killers, they also help to dilate the blood vessels which increase blood flow to healing tissues and organ systems it also helps reduce stress on the body and heart.

On the other hand, negative emotions, those emotions of fear, dispair, anger, worry and hopelessness reduce the number of and slow down the movement of disease fighting white blood cells in our blood stream and contribute to the development of stroke or cardiac disease by releasing high amounts of adrenaline into the blood stream. This adrenaline raises blood pressure and constricts blood flow to working and healing tissues and organs.

All in all, when we live in gratitude or experience thankful thoughts, we are facilitating and tapping into our healing capabilities and de-stressing our bodies so that our bodies can heal. This contributes to optimal levels of health and longer healthier lives. Feeling grateful will make us feel better!

"You cannot be grateful and unhappy at the same time."
-Woman to Dr. Tom Costa

So when you are upset, fearful or hopeless, spend some time thinking of all of your blessings, learn to acquire hope and live in hope, you will get better, you will beat whatever you are dealing with, you will attract better results to you!

Gratitude Makes Us Young and Healthy

Many of us reach a point in life, whether our career, love life, health or family relationships are not what we expected or wanted, a time where we are not happy with our current results. It may be a point in life where we feel a joyless existence or a deep achiness that life just has to be better than this. This can be seen as a turning point, a point where our soul is seeking further self expression and one-ness with Spirit. Personally, I suffered from all of the above, I lost my health, my career, my relationships were lost or in turmoil, I was at a low point, I was feeling a joyless existence. I was lost spiritually, emotionally and I lost my physical balance as well.

But now, in retrospect, I am grateful for hitting this low, as it allowed me to take action and make an initiative to live better, live a fuller, happier life and to learn, live, internalize the concepts of gratitude, attraction and abundance. In my experience, I read lots of books, signed up for many internet self help programs focuses on optimzing my mind/body/soul life harmony, learned the laws of attraction and other universal laws. Learning that I can choose my results and make a difference in my life and others and that I can choose to live a life of optimal health and healing, success, wealth, freedom of time. My life has completely turned around. Now I live each day, passionate, happy, joyous and grateful. My life is truly blessed. My life is truly better, now things happen for me and I am always in a state of awe and gratefulness when things turn out for me. It is real. It can work this way for everyone, there are numerous resources on this blog or my Acquired Hope website resource page, for anyone and everyone who is seeking to live a fuller life, a happier life, an easier life. Enjoy the journey and your abundance!

"The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common."
-Ralph Waldo Emmerson

I would like to share with you the definitions of joy and gratitude, these terms are nearly inseparable!

Joy: "emotion evoked by well being, success or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires."

Gratitude: "state of being appreciative of benefits received."

In essence, whenever we are appreciative or thankful, we are filled with a sense of well-being and swept up by the feeling of joy. Make joy and gratitude your way of being.

Consciously Cultivating Thankfulness

The act of consciously cultivating gratitude and living with a thankful mind takes some effort initially, but can become a way of being for those that take this journey of the soul. For those who adopt the attitude of gratitude, this becomes a way of living each day. One begins to look around at his or her life, and see the positive effects and success that gratitude creates. As we partake in the delight and inner peace of a thankful mind and understand the gifts of gratitude, we realize that being grateful is not something remote or foreign, but a natural part of the joyful expression of our human nature. This is when the attitude of gratitude becomes passive, easy, effortless and a part of our every day routine, our way of being.

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity...Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."

- Melody Beattie

Simple Joy of a Grateful Heart

I wanted to share this inspirational hope quote with you today:

"If you look to others for fulfillment,
you will never truly be fulfilled.

If your happiness depends on money,
you will never be happy with yourself.

Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.

When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you."

-Lao Tzu

This is a great poem to read to get into the feeling place of being connected to everything and living in a universe that is truly abundant. You are already connected to this abundance. When you believe this, things start to happen for you, and not against you.

Inspirational Life Quote

" Life will bring you pain all by itself. Your responsbility is to create joy."

- Milton Erickson, M.D.

ref: 365 Days of Abundant Hope

Spirit Forms Itself In Your Life Based On Your Thoughts

"Spirit is substance which forms itself according to your demands, and must have a pattern from which to work. A pan of dough is as willing to be formed into bread as biscuit. It makes little difference to Spirit what we demand."

Frances Larimer Warner,Our Invisible Supply: Part One, 1907

I love this concept, this is what the universal laws and law of attraction are all about. There is a universal substance of which all things are made, this substance is a thinking substance, which is always seeking further life expression and fulfillment. Think of that piece of grass that has found its way and is now sprouting out of between the concrete sidewalk, that is spirit, seeking advancement and further life. Think of evolution, an animal species evolves when they find an opportunity for further life and advancement.

This thinking substance is energy, it is God force. It is everywhere, 100% of the time at all times, we are all connected to it. We are connected to everything. Our thoughts cause this thinking substance, this universal life force, this infinite Spirit to attract things, people circumstances to us. We are the co-creators of our life. We are responsible for our failures and our successes, no one else. What we focus on, what we think about, what we imagine is what we attract back to us. There is no such thing as lucky people. Those people who have attracted great relationships, love, success, wealth, a love of life, they have mastered the law of attraction, either consciously or subconsciously.

When you decide to learn, master and internalize this incredible information, life will start to change around you. Like Dr. Wayne Dyer says, "when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." (ref: 10 Secrets to Success and Inner Peace )

As the quote says above, Spirit does not care and know big, vs small requests and thoughts, Spirit will respond to whatever it is that we focus on and how deeply we desire it. Spirit will attract to us everything that we need in order to accomplish our goals, as long as we hold our image in our minds, have a knowing that it is coming, eliminate all doubts and fears, and live in a continuous state of gratitude. This means living in full faith, that is faith with gratitude. Essentially, being thankful for all of the blessings that are coming to us, even before they have arrived!

Happy Holidays, I am so very grateful for my optimaly health, my mind, my friends and family, my success and my ability to give back to the universe/God and inspire, empower and educate so many in beating chronic illness, living in optimal health and aspiring for a fuller life, one that is abundant in all good things.

Universal Laws Lesson: Law of Vibration and Attraction

This Lesson on the universal laws is from the SGR program. I highly recommend learning, practicing and internalizing these laws to all aspects of your life: your health, wealth, success, relationships. You will find opportunities and attract better things, once you work in harmony with these laws.

The Law of Vibration and Attraction:
This law may be considered by many as the law of laws... everything is energy, our thoughts our energy. Everything vibrates, our thoughts vibrate. Positive, passionate, inspired thoughts vibrate at high energies, where as thoughts of anger, fear, depression, anxiety or competition are low energy vibrations. Nothing rests, not even inanimate objects.

Conscious awareness of your thoughts or of vibration is called feelings. When you feel good, you are vibrating at higher frequencies, when you feel bad you are vibrating at lower end frequencies. Your thoughts control your paradigm, your environment---your results. Your thoughts dictate that which you attract to you, good things with high vibrations or more bad with lower energy thoughts and vibrations. But remember you can choose your own thoughts and therefore your own results ( )

Exercise:Your ability to earn money, attract optimal health of the right people in your life is directly affected by the manner in which you work with this law. In so far as money, or health or success is concerned, how do you plan to work with this law? What changes will you make? List 10 things that you will do from this day forward in order to work in harmony with this law to secure success, more money, better health or improved relationships.

Remember it is important to practice having good thoughts, and feeling good. So when you feel bad, do something to help you think of something pleasant so you raise your thought vibrations and start to attract more good to you. Listen to uplifting music, personally I pull out my SGR program MP3 player and listen to it to get my thoughts back in positive vibrations or I pull out my Dr Dyer program on inner peace and the power of intention. ( The important thing is that you become aware of your feelings and therefore your thoughts. That you change your thoughts and therefore your vibrations to positive ones and higher frequencies. This is how you master this law and attract more good and abundance (good health, wealth, success, relationships) to you. Stay in the positive higher energies, find what it takes to help YOU get and stay there... you have to find this out for yourself, resources are provided and recommended on this blog, they are all very recognized, respected and effective, but you have to try out what works for you, and use this knowledge to work in harmony with this universal law.

Ref: SGR program

Universal Laws Lesson: Law of Relativity

This Lesson on the universal laws is from the SGR program. I highly recommend learning, practicing and internalizing these laws to all aspects of your life: your health, wealth, success, relationships. You will find opportunities and attract better things, once you work in harmony with these laws.

The Law of Relativity:
Nothing is good or bad, big or small, until you relate it to something. A situation just is, it is neither good nor bad, your health is neither good nor bad, there is always someone out there with better health, and someone out there with worse health (or wealth, success, relationships etc). It is all in how you look at your situation and what thoughts and perspective you choose to think about the situation with. When you focus on good thoughts and energies, more good things will come to you. Likewise, if you focus on how bad your situation is, you will attract more bad.

Practice relating your situation to something much worse so that you will think and feel fortunate and good and your will always look better!

Exercise:Your ability to earn money, attract optimal health or the right people in your life is directly affected by the manner in which you work with this law. In so far as money, or health or success is concerned, how do you plan to work with this law? What changes will you make? List 10 things that you will do from this day forward in order to work in harmony with this law to secure success, more money, better health or improved relationships.

Ref: SGR program

Universal Laws Lesson: Law of Perpetual Transmutation

This Lesson on the universal laws is from the SGR program. I highly recommend learning, practicing and internalizing these laws to all aspects of your life: your health, wealth, success, relationships. You will find opportunities and attract better things, once you work in harmony with these laws.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation:

Energy moves into physical form. Nothing is created nor destroyed, energy is. The thoughts and images you hold in your mind most often materialize in results in your life.

Your ability to earn money, attract optimal health or the right people in your life is directly affected by the manner in which you work with this law. In so far as money, or health or success is concerned, how do you plan to work with this law? What changes will you make? List 10 things that you will do from this day forward in order to work in harmony with this law to secure success, more money, better health or improved relationships.

Success in Life Starts with Your Attitude!

“No person who is enthusiastic about his work has anything to fear from life.”

– Samuel Goldwyn

Success in Life Starts with an Abundant Attitude!!!
In order to open yourself up to success of any kind, be it more money, freedom, better health or attracting friends and relationships that help you reach your intentions, you first need to believe in your self. Secondly you need to believe that success starts with your attitude. You must be convinced, have an absolute knowing that you can and will succeed!

You have to control your thinking processes to build the right attitude... an abundant attitude, and what I mean by an abundant attitude is that you believe that life is full and abundant, that you are here to live to the fullest and allow God or your higher power to express through you with creative energies, that everything you need is already here and is actually already yours---that you ARE success, you ARE abundance!

You need to hold positive thoughts, look for the good side of the situation---be a good finder and the good will find you too. Build the belief in yourself, truly believe you can have it, and that you deserve it and that there are infinite possibilities out there. When you think that nothing can stop you, others will slowly adopt your view and attitude and from confidence great adventures build. They will support you, jump on your bandwagon, and contribute to your success---they will serve you. They will give you help that they won’t provide to people who don’t believe in themselves.

One major key to acquiring an abundant attitude is to project a winning, confident attitude that inspires success. As from Dr. Dyer: inspiration is by definition, being full of spirit, this means you are tapping into your God given creative energies.... you are passionate, loving and joyous in your actions.

Living and emulating this abundant attitude is achieved at the beginning by working on your internal thought processes. Remember, you choose your thoughts! For example, change the way you end and greet each day. Before you go to sleep think of something you are looking forward to doing tomorrow. Make a Gratitude list and read it first thing in the morning and when you go to bed, even 5 things that you are grateful for.

In the morning before you get out of bed, take a few moments to welcome the day. Think of the reasons why today can be special or important for your future. Say aloud to yourself, “What a great day!” Think about how you can make wonderful things happen. As ideas flow through your mind, feel the enthusiasm that your positive attitude has generated and the smile on your face. This is living in passion and being inspired. This is working with the law of gratitude and attraction.

Understand this----Gratitude is the precursor to manifesting...when you feel grateful for all that you have and all that is coming to you, when you can be grateful for things that have not yet arrived, that is when you are really tapping into the powerful laws of the universe...that is when your world will start to bend and reshape around you, that is when you open up the flow of abundance of all good things to you!

The Universal Laws: Definition of Natural Law

The universal laws.... something that I was unaware of until about 3 years ago... are the laws of which the universe works by. If you would like new results in your life, better health, better relationships, more wealth, freedom and success, then you must think, feel and act in harmony with these laws.

Here is an excert from the Secret Science of Getting Rich program presenting these universal laws. I found this program powerful and most instructive, I strongly recommend you participate in some program to learn these laws to opimtize your life, your health, your success, your love and your dreams... I will post some resources at the end of this post.... there are many to choose from, please do decide to act and start learning and working in harmony with these laws and as Dr. Dyer always says... "when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change", meaning these laws work, they absolutely work, guaranteed, when you start to work with them, your life will change, guaranteed.

Now from the SGR program, as written by Bob Proctor:

" There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches (may I personally add this is true for love, relationships, optimal health, success of any kind... what ever you desire, there is a law that determines the outcome (nbm)). Once you learn and obey these laws, you will auotmatically become a member of the select group of people who live "The Secret" and you will get rich (or be successful in whatever you desire (nbm)) with mathematical certainty.

There is but one Great Law: namely, "Energy Is" or "God Is".

All physical and mental science is based on this one great law and its 7 subsidiary laws which operate in co-ordination with each other. The law of vibration is the law that serves as the foundation for the law of attraction.

Here are the Universal Laws:

1) The Law of Perpetual Transmutation

2) The Law of Relativity

3) The Law of Vibration (Law of Attraction)

4) The Law of Polarity

5) The Law of Rhythm

6) The Law of Cause and Effect

7) The Law of Gender

The best definition of Natural Law seems to be that "it is the uniform and orderly method of the omnipotent God."

Additionally, unlike any other form of animal life that has been created, we were given the power of choice or free will."

Remember these universal laws and the law of attraction are always working, whether you believe or understand them, the truth is in your current results. You can change your results, just learn these universal laws and apply them to your life. Then think it, feel it and do it and you will attract everything you need, this is the great Secret of life!


Famous quote by Andrew Carnegie on his Riches

Here is another famous quote, from the SGR program. This one from Andrew Carnegie, one of the wealthiest men in history. This quote was given to Napolean Hill, as Napolean Hill was doing his work and writing his book "Think and Grow Rich" (For a free Ebook of this book, download it off my website resource page....enjoy the brilliance of the knowledge from these Masterminds!)

"I demand riches in definite terms; I have a definite plan for acquiring riches; I am engaged in carrying out my plan, and I am giving an equivalent in useful service, of the value of those riches I demand."

-Andrew Carnegie


Acquiring Wisdom ---read this quote for inspiration!

Here is another quote from the SGR program that I just love!!!

"Curious how we acquire wisdom! Over and over again, the same truth is thrust under our very noses. We encounter it in action; we are admonished of it; we read it in the written word. We suffer the experience; we gradually assent to the advice; we approve, intellectually, the written word. But nothing happens inside us.

Then, one day, some trivial experience or word or encounter stops us short. A gleam of illumination penetrates the depth of our consciousness. We see! Usually it is but a glimpse; but on rare occasions a brilliant flash reveals truth fully formed. And we marvel that this understanding has escaped us so long."

- Stewart Edward White and Harwood White

Ref: SGR program

Open Your Mind and Learn

I would like to share some magnificent and inspirational quotations from the Secret Science of Getting Rich (SGR) program.

"To learn you need a certain degree of confidence, not too much and not too little. If you have too little confidence, you will thinkyou can't learn. If you have too much, you will think you don't have to learn."

- Eric Hoffer

"A person's right to life means his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all thing which my be necessary fo his fullest mental, spiritual and physical unfolding--in orther words, his right to be rich."


-Wallace D. Wattles

Living Life On Purpose

Living life on purpose can provide you with a power of enlightenment, success, creativity, passion and inspiration. When you're inspired and on purpose, great things work for you. The risks and stress are gone, as you now move on a fast track towards your intentions. You recieve guidance and assistance from others. You are in harmony with your intentions and you feel deep positive feelings towards those people and activities that are in alignment with your passions and purpose.

If you need help finding your life purpose, may I recommend this program: it is fantastic!

Being inspired and living on purpose is critical for a life of optimal health, love, success and abundance.

Here are 10 ways to practice fulfilling your intention to live life on purpose.

1) Affirm that this is an intelligent universe, there are no accidents, no one shows up by accident, not even you, everyone has a purpose. It is our responsibility to find that purpose and live by it.

2) Seize every opportunity, no matter how small to give your life away in service. Give without want. Serve others and the universe everyday.

3) Align your purpose with the field of intention.

4) Ignore what anyone else tells you about your purpose. This is your purpose, not theirs.

5) Remember that the universe works on your behalf and wants you to obtain your life goals and purpose just as much as you do.

6) Study and replicate the lives of poeple who have known their life purpose, learn, study and find yours.

7) Act as if you are living the life you were intended to live, even if you feel confused about your purpose and how you are going to achieve it.

8) Meditate or use techniques of self-hypnosis ( , )

9) Keep your thoughts and feelings on a positive plane, be in harmony with your actions. Remember, a congruent attitude is one that is positive in your thoughts, feelings and actions, you have to really want it, believe it is possible and know that you deserve it and can have it.

10) Stay in a state of awe and gratitude of all that comes your way.

I love this stuff!!!


10 Step Process for Creating a Stress-Free Life

Stress, we all know it and know what it can do to us. It can ravage our bodies causing disease and disability. It can reak havoc on our minds, confusing us and directing us to live in fear and anxiety. It can ruin relationships if we let it. It can take attention away from ourselves and the things in life that are most important. I have found, in success and obtaining optimal health, finding inner peace, and reducing stress is absolutely critical. Here is a summary of the 10 step process Dr. Dyer presents:

Here is a 10 step process for creating a stress-free and tranquil life.

1) Remember that your natural state is joy. You are a product of love and joy, learn to stay in harmony with these feelings.

2) Your thoughts, not the world, cause your stress. (wow...That one is powerful!)

3) You can change your thought of stress in any given moment and eliminate the anxiety for the next few moments, or hours or days. This is a conscious effort that develops out of awareness. Increase your awareness, your power of mind and reconnect to the universe.

4) Monitor your stressful thoughts by checking on your emotional state. How are you feeling???

5) Make a conscious decision and choice to select thoughts (and results) that activate good feelings. (

6) Spend some time observing babies, and vow to emulate their profound joy.

7) Keep your ego in check. Refer to "Rule number 6". (you are going to love rule #6!)

8) Accept the guidance of your source of intention.

9) Practice silence and meditation or self hypnosis. (I personally needed help with this so I am including some programs that can help: , , , )

10) Stay in a state of gratitude and awe of all the abundance, love, joy and good that comes to you.

Positive Affirmations for a Stress Free Life

As you know, I am a huge fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer and I'd like to take an opportunity to post some of his reading on positive affirmations, these are focused on living a stress-free, tranquil life. I hope you enjoy and use them as I do and watch how your world, your life improves and you find your inner peace.

The key is to take the path of least resistance and focus on the abundant resources that are here. You as a human, have a thinking center, your mind. With this thinking center you have the ability to create original thought--- that means no matter what external sources (people, newspapers, tv, media) are saying, you can create your own thoughts.

1) Old thought: I feel so uneasy about the state of the economy, I have already lost so much money.

New thought as positive affirmation: I am so happy and grateful now that I live in an abundant universe, I choose to think about what I have and I will be fine. The universe will provide.

2) Old thought: I have so many things to do that I can never get caught up.

New thought as positive affirmation: I am so happy and grateful now that I am at peace. I'll only think about the one thing I am doing. I will have peaceful thoughts.

3) Old thought: I can never get ahead in this job.

New thought and positive affirmation: I choose to appreciate what I am doing right now and I'll attract an even greater opportunity.

4) Old thought: My health is a huge concern. I worry about my health, getting old and becoming sicker and dependent.

New thought as positive affirmation: I am healthy, I am healed, I think healthy. I live in a universe that attracts healing and I refuse to anticipate or give power to sickness.

5) Old thought: My family member/issue is causing me to feel anxious and fearful.

New thought as positive affirmation: I choose thoughts that make me feel good, and this will help me to uplift me and others. I know everything I need in order to handle any situation will be attracted to me in the time it is needed most.

Positive Affirmations to Attract Wealth and Success

An affirmation is a strong, positive statement about something you want to manifest in your life. To affirm means to make something firm, thus by stating your goal in a definite way, you make it more clear to you, the universe and to your subconscious mind. This is how you can master the law of attraction.

Affirmations are positive signals you send to your brain every time you say them or read them or write them. Through the law of attraction and vibration, your subconscious mind and the universe work together to bring things, people, events and circumstances to you.

Writing down and re-reading your affirmations make them more powerful, as does making them emotional. This technique is far more effective than just saying them. The more you practice this technique, the more effective it becomes.

Here are some sample positive affirmations for wealth and success:

I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me easily, frequently and effortlessly.

I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quanitites.

I deserve to be wealthy, successful and prosperous and this is coming true for me now.

For more affirmations and techniques to make them effective and powerful, see my "Acquired Hope" book.

Everyone has the ability to change their inner conversations with themselves. Reprogramming your mind to believe these affirmations is a big step in manifesting them!

Positive Affirmations

I am a big believer in positive affirmations and using them to co-create and attract that which you desire and also become who you want to be. The technique of positive affirmations is a powerful way to develop oneself and find inner peace.

Here are some affirmations for Self-Confidence:

I am so happy and grateful now that I am completely relaxed, self-confident and self-assured in all that I do.

I am so happy and grateful not that I can accomplish any goal that I desire through planning and self-motivation.

Here is an affirmation for Concentration:

I am so happy and grateful now that I have the ability to focus my undivided attention on any particular task at any time. I am able to concentrate deeply on anything I set my mind to. I can shut out all distractions and focus my entire attention on the problem at hand.

Here is an affirmation for Problem Solving:

I am so happy and grateful now that every problem is an opportunity for me to be a creator and that I am highly creative. I consider every problem that confronts me as a new door to be opened. I continuously attract whatever I need to solve the problem. I begin each project thinking of a new and better way to accomplish the task.

Here is an affirmation on Composure:

I am so happy and grateful now that I an poised, relaxed and peaceful. I accept challenges and disagreements with calmness.

Notice that by starting each affirmation in the present tense, and adding a statement of gratitude aligns you with the universal laws. You are practicing and embracing the law of gratitude and acting as if it is true by stating "I" and "Now". For more techniques on the techniques of writing powerful and effective positive affirmations, please see my "Acquired Hope" book. Another great resource is

Mind's Role in Self Healing

Here is a great quote on the mind's role in health and disease:

"The mind has untapped potential far beyond the every day uses that we make of it. Self-healing is a major factor in curing most illnesses. A patient's mental attitude can help or hinder the body's self-healing mechanisms. Through various forms of meditation or self hypnosis, the power of the mind or psyche can be enlisted for the purpose of speeding up the healing process."

-Dr. Lawrence LeShan author of "You Can Fight for Your Life"

Unleash Your Inner Mind Power: Self Hyposis Works!

I was always a skeptic when anyone would talk about meditation or self hypnosis. Then I got sick, and I could not get better. I was exhausted, tired, weak, felt horrible and missed out on a lot of fun things.

I spent months studying self healing and I quickly learned the power of the mind is critical to advancing recovery and full healing. It is a necessary piece of the puzzle. You cannot completely heal yourself (and the doctors are not going to heal you fully either!) until you tap into your inner healing power.

The best, most effective way to do this is to open the magic door of your inner healing power through meditation or self hypnosis. Try it, you will never believe how effective it is until you do. I did, and after awhile, it worked!

There is no power in the world as great as the power in your mind. Those that learn how to release these powers become effective co-creators or as Dr. Dyer calls them "connectors". (ref: )

The person who learns techniques of self hypnosis discovers the secret to life success and optimal health. Learning self- hypnosis is a skill, a long term skill that I strongly suggest you try to master.

Here are some reasons why self hypnosis works:
1) Imagination is more powerful than willpower! In any battle between imagination and will, the imagination always wins! This means, use your imagination, not your reason to heal yourself. (Please understand this was hard for me! I was a science-based clinical person with a degree in physcial therapy and a masters in healthcare adminstration---that is all science and facts, the power of the mind and imagination were the furthest thing from my plan!)

2) Imagination is more powerful than reason. Our imagination is the most powerful thing we possess. We create with it, we attract with it, we heal with it. If you over analyze and apply rational thought and reason continuously, it will slow your healing process, unleash your creativity, think abundant health!

3) Only one idea can be entertained by the mind at any given time. Conflicting ideas cannot be held at one time. Therefore choose to focus on new results, choose to focus on optimal health.

4) Any imagined condition will become real if persisted in, provided it is believed and felt to be deserved. This one concept is the secret to self healing!

I have read and taken various programs to help me get good and effective at self hypnosis. These are the ones I recommend:

Try it! It is worth it! These program cost nothing compared to pills, dr appt.s, surgery and the stress and exhaustion of chronic illness. You deserve to feel better, just try it!

The Power of the Mind in Self Healing

In previous posts I presented the power of creative visualization, affirmations and thoughts in healing. I continue to spend time reading material focused on these concepts of advanced recovery and self-healing.

Listen to this comment from Dr. Evelyn Monahan, who taught at Emory University's school of nursing: "you can use the mind to affect external things, including the molecular structure of the body". She believes creative visualization techniques are extremely powerful and effective. As she says, "one of the most effective techniques is visualization, I taught the nurses to teach patients to actually see diseased organs or infection of the body repairing themselves, for example if you want to fight infection, visualize the white blood cells going to the infectin site and destroying the invading body."

Additionally, Dr. Irving Oyle, author of "The Healing Mind" was an early pioneer in the use of visualization, meditation/self hypnosis and affirmations in self-healing. He states:
"By changing the consciousness, the mental picture you have of what is going on in your body, you can change the physical body. By thinking themselves sick, people become sick. We know for example there is a certain type of personality that tends to get heart attacks. If you can change the thinking pattern or the visual imagery to restore health, you become your own healer."
Therefore, healing yourself comes under the natural laws of the universe, specifically, the law of vibration/law of attraction. Disease, chronic illness is just a vibration, so is optimal health. Disease is a low vibration, optimal health, a high vibration. Healing becomes fixing the maladjustments of frequencies of your thought patterns.

When you can change the vibration of something, you can change its form. In order to change the vibration, we must apply mental energy, healing energy, energy in the form of thought.
This information is so powerful, changing your thoughts, raising your conscious awareness, using techniques of affirmations, meditation/self hypnosis, visualization and the law of attraction to create better health, increase your self-healing capacity and live in optimal health energies, is possible!

You just need to study it, believe it and think it.

I have many resources to help you achieve this, I had a chronic illness, I healed myself by these techniques. I was taking 22 pills a day and was moderate to severely disabled from the fatigue. These tecnhiques work! Please try them, I want you to win too!

PS: for techniques on effective and powerful creative visualization, affirmations, ways of being, the BE:DO:HAVE secret, attitude congruence, goal setting to reach higher levels of function, the law of attraction and how to apply it to self heal, please refer to my book "Acquired Hope: A Journey of Advanced Recovery and Empowerment".

10 Step Plan for Optimizing Healing Capacity

I am a huge fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer, he has been instrumental in my recovery and my ability to heal myself and go into remission.

Please let me share some of his writing with you, it is powerful, inspirational and fun to read.
First, lets start with a quote:

"No one can ask another to be healed. But he can let himself be healed, and thus offer the other what he has received. Who can bestow upon another what he does not have? And who can share what he denies himself?"-A Course in Miracles

Every person on this planet has within him or herself the potential to be a healer, to heal oneself and allow themself to be healed. In order to make conscious contact with your own inherent healing powers, you must make the decision to heal yourself. The only way to be heal is to be healed. Once you have accepted your power to heal yourself and optimize your health, you become someone who is also capable of healing others.

First, become the healing. Learn to reconnect to the disease-free loving perfection from which you were born from. The universal mind knows exactly what you need in order to heal yourself. So you must align yourself with the univeral mind and laws and work in harmony with these laws in order to optimize your health.

Second, take notice of your thoughts and feelings. Note when you are creating resistance to the healing process. Do not speak poorly or negatively of your current health issues. Only think and feel yourself healing and feelin more energetic and vibrant each day. When you focus on the disease, or the lack and limitation, you interfere with healing. I know I did this for years, and I remained so very sick. Once I learned and started to really work at this, I started to get better. Today I feel super! So stop complaining about how bad you feel and focus on how good you feel, as crazy as that sounds, it is necessary.

Do daily affirmations, change your thoughts from sickness to thoughts of wellness, affirm optimal health, visualize yourself with a health body! Remember how we discussed creative visualization earlier? If you want to learn techniques on how to be effective in your visualizations and affiramtios they are presented in my book "Acquired Hope". Daily affirmations and visualizations are such powerful techniques to advance the healing process, please do not over look them.

Lastly, know that illness is not a punishment. Do not intellectualize the disease process, this only separates you from good health. Be encouraged to think of yourself as a healer, as moving towards better health, towards optimal health. Do not overanalyze your condition, if you do you are giving it power!

Here is Dr. Dyer's 10 step program on making optimal health your reality (summarized of course):

1) You can't heal anyone until you allow yourself to be healed.

2) The healing energy that you're connected to at all times is what you have to give away to others.

3) By raising your awareness, your energy to a vibrational match with the universe/power of intention, you are strengthening your immune system and increasing the production of well-being enzymes in the brain.

4) Practice Surrender!

5) Don't ask to be healed, ask to be restored to that perfection from which you came from.
6) Know that you are loved and adored.

7) Seek out and cherish the silence, find inner peace!

8) Identify with the wholeness that you are.

9) Allow an abundance of good health to flow into your life. Practice the art of allowing.

10 ) Stay immersed in a state of gratitude.

I love it!

Ref: Dr. Wayne Dyer:

Everything You Need is Already Here

I have found this 10 step program on succcess very helpful, I hope it serves you well!

"When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you." -Lao Tzu

One of the greatest secrets to success and attracting abundance into your life is to internalize this: when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Now, ask yourself, how do you look at life? Well the Universe, is always giving, constantly and always seeking advancement and further life expression. This universal source can only work with you when you are in harmony with it.

Pay attention to your thoughts and your feeling. Abundance in the natural state of the universe, when you are pushing back, pushing against or not allowing, you are impeding the flow of abundance to you. Negative thoughts and feelings such as doubt, worry, fear, shame, anxiety or blame are clear indications you are not in harmony with the universal laws.

If you desire something, but feel poorly, such as doubt you deserve it doubt it is possible or feel like it will never happen, you set up instant roadblocks and your desire cannot come to you. When you open up your mind, raise your awarenss and beging to think and feel like the Universe, that everything you need is already here and that you are already connected to it, that is when the things start to arrive in your life.

Here are some suggestions from Dr. Wayne Dyer on how to make your success your reality, these are powerful!

1) See the world as an abundant, providing, friendly place.

2) Affirm: I attract success and abundance into my life because that is who I am.

3) Stay in an attitude of allowing.

4) Use your present moments to activate thoughts that are in harmony with Intention (the universe).

5) Initiate actions that support your feelings of abundance and success.

6) Remember that your prosperity and success will benefit others, that no one lacks abundance because you have opted for it.

7) Monitor your emotions as a guidance system for your connection to the universal mind of intention.

8) Become as generous to the world with your abundance as the field of intention is to you.

9) Devote the necessary time to meditate on your success and abundance.

10) Develop an attitude of gratitude for all that manifests in your life.

I find this 10 step program so powerful! It can be used in all aspects of your life, optimal health, recovery from illness, manifesting people and good relationships etc, just change the focus of your affirmations, thoughts and goals.

Wishing you abundance, I am grateful for mine!

ref: Dr. Wayne Dyer:

Emulate Your Mentors

One of the most effective secrets to success that I did not mention earlier is emulating other successful people or having a mentor.

Study people’s thoughts, habits and methods of acquiring success, these should be people you admire or who have reached the goals that you are aspiring for. Start to think like them and emulate them and you will get the same successful results. Read their books, take their programs, get into their minds and thoughts. Pick up their habits. Allow them to mentor you.

Those who have mentors advance more rapidly professionally and personally. But mentoring may not be what you think it is. We all have mentors. We all have many mentors. Sometimes it is just becoming aware of who your mentors are.

Mentors are people in your life who listen, encourage, support, challenge and advise you. They provide direction. They help you to take a look at your situation or issue from a different perspective and help you to see the possibilities and options that you did not see initially. They allow you to make an informed and thoughtful decision and assist in problem solving to increase your confidence, strengthen your abundant attitude.

Two decades of intensive research has proven what we all know intuitively: those who have significant relationships with people they consider mentors advance more rapidly professionally and personally. They become aware and learn the attributes of successful, fruitful and highly energetic people. No one advances forward quickly without significant help from others. You do not even need to know these people, just learn the way that they think.
Create a mental committee of people who you admire create your panel of mentors, or have accomplished goals in your field; tap into their energy. Studies have shown that mentoring is the most effective way to successfully accomplish your goals, in the shortest period of time. Absolutely do not skip over this one. You must get a mentor if you want fast and successful results.

You must learn from the masterminds. You must learn how to raise your level of awareness and share like mindedness with these souls. They say you become the composite of the 5 people that you spend the most time with. If you are serious about creating new results, you should dedicate as much of your free time, energy and resources to soaking up the information and knowledge mentors can provide you.

Read their books, listen to their tapes, over and over again until you can hear them in your mind and you start to speak and think like them!

Raising Your Awareness: This Secret Counts!

Are you tired of working at your job, having someone tell you how much vacation you can take and when you can take it? Are you tired of the limit on your earning potential? Are you tired of working hard and not seeing results, or more income or freedom?

Are you tired of your schedule being dictated by others? Are you yearning for more income to travel, go on vacations, send your kids to nice schools, retire or even open your own business?
Do you look at a price tag before you buy something, often put it down and settle for something less expensive?

Do you hate writing bills each month and get a queasy feeling when bills are due or when you look at your savings account?

Well what if you could change all of that and create a life style of abundance, opulence, freedom to so what you want, when you want, wealth to travel, money to focus on what you want to focus on (Health, friends, family, new house) rather than spending your time to pay your bills working at your JOB?

The solution to all of this pain caused by lack of abundance, is in you deciding to make a positive act towards raising your awareness. Changing your results means you create new opportunities, you create options, you create choices and with that is freedom. Financial freedom and freedom of time. Choice becomes a function of awareness.

So in order to escape the rat race and enter the money kingdom and begin to create and live the free life that you desire, YOU MUST RAISE YOUR AWARENESS!

This is done only by studying, learning from mentors and choosing a life purpose and path. You must make a decision to commit and you must do something about it. This will not happen magically in front of your eyes without action on your part.

Raise your awareness, once you have the tools, the material to read, listen to and study, all you have to do is sit back, listen, read and study it and you will automatically raise your level of awareness. THEN and only then will you be able to successfully co-create your life dreams and really endeavor to live.

Raising your awareness come easily, quickly and near effortlessly with these materials below. If you ignore this and do not decide to act positively and decisively and start today to change your life and to raise your awareness, then another day, or week or month or year will go by and you will be in the exact same situation as you are today. Now that is not living. You are reading this email Ecourse for a reason, You already know that you want to make changes, you just do not know how to make changes and how to create new results.

I am here today to give you the keys to the kingdom, but you must act and commit yourself. Raise your awareness, it is necessary. Do that one thing and the things you look at around you will change.

Here are some great resources for you to start cheaply and immediately. One simple step towards a new life. But you must do something about it. You must take a step forward.

Important Secret to Success!

We are all aware of how important it is to set goals in order to obtain and measure results and success. But are you doing this?

Are you writing your goals down?

I read this the other day in a book: "Set a goal and WRITE IT DOWN. Whatever the goal, the important thing is that you set it, so you've got something for which to aim-and that you write it down. There is something magical about writing things down. When you reach that goal, set another and write it down. You'll be off and running."

Writing our goals down appears to be a written declaration to ourselves to commit to reaching it. Studies have shown that people who write their goals down, as opposed to just thinking them are far more successful in reaching them.


Start today by committing yourself to attracting abundant health and wealth to you. Write out a goal. Something like: "I (name), make a commitment to myself to focus on achieving success, optimal health and abundant wealth. My goal is to increase my income to ($) a month, create a new business, find a new business opportunity, attract a wealth-generation system, create passive income..... (fill in the blank...)."

Additionally, studies in psychology also show that people are far more likely to reach their goals if they write them and then make them public. So take your written declaration and goal from above and post it on this blog.... send it on an email to your family and it on your fridge.

In fact several weight loss programs use this technique to get millions of people to commit to losing weight. It works, it is that effective!! Once you write it down and tell people about it, you will be more likely to stick with it and reach your goals... be successful in obtaining abundance and wealth!

Do not skip this or underestimate it's power and importance!!!!

Embrace the Universe!

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”

Today’s Inspired Action:
Do not under estimate what seems like a simple idea. By embracing the Universe or your Higher Power, you have the potential to transform your life and your health forever!

Exerpt from "365 Days of Abundant Hope"

There are so many resources to help you embrace the Universe or your Higher Power. For some free resources visit the resource page on:

Daily Inspired Quote and Directive Action

“When everything goes against you, and it seems you cannot hold on for a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the time and place that the tide will turn.”
-Harriet Beecher Stowe

Today’s Inspired Action:
Read books that help you to focus on hope and abundance. Read the book “Acquired Hope: A Journey of Advanced Recovery and Empowerment.”

This is an exerpt from by book "365 Days of Abundant Hope" I enjoy the daily readings, as they fill my heart, my life, my soul and my life with abundance, hope, positive energy and help me to attract all good into my life.

Practice the Art of Allowing

The art of allowing means several things. It means being receptive to allowing all the good and abundance that is flowing to you. This is where you take the foot off the brake and put it on the gas....your flow of increase opens up when you understand this concept. You begin to allow things to happen instead of subconsciously impeding the flow.

Be flexible and receptive. This means practicing the art of allowing. Be open minded to the people, ideas, thoughts, intuition, inner guidance and desires you feel within you. Desire is Power seeking expression, the universal mind is seeking to celebrate and express itself through you. Allow it to happen. This means acting in accordance to your inner knowing, eliminating judgmental and biased views of others and working on the creative plane as opposed to the competitive plane.

Keep in mind that situations, ideas, people, and conditions change. If you keep your blinders on, you'll miss many opportunities that can assist you to perform your goals with speed, ease, comfort and joy. You must keep your eye on your goal and believe in the concept of infinite opportunities. When you believe in the infinite possibilities that are open and coming to you, and practice the art of allowing, you open up the flow of abundance and prosperity to you.

Part of allowing it being grateful for everything and bit of abundance that comes to you. Starting your day with gratitude. Practicing gratitude is a tremendous way to raise your thought vibrations and attract more of what you desire to you. The law of gratitude works when you think and feel thoughts for all of the blessings that you have and that are coming to do. Always include gratitude as a part of your daily affirmations.

Enjoy your abundance and have fun allowing it in!

Harmonize with the Nature of Your Dominating Thoughts

Understand that each thought you are thinking creates your future now. This is the Law of Attraction in Action. This concept is often referred to as pre-paving our future. Thoughts have energy that creates a vibration, these vibrations attract people, events, conditions that are in alignment with the same or similar vibration energy. When you think low energy thoughts, such as negative thoughts, fear, doubt, worry, anger, regret or grief, you attract low energy people, situations and events to you.

When you think high energy thoughts, those of optimism, love, passion, forward thinking, abundance and advancement, you attract high energy things back to you, that is the natural law of attraction. You basically create your future by using the natural laws of the Universe, primarily the Laws of Attraction and Cause and Effect to bring people, events, things and situations that correspond to the natural frequency or vibration of your thoughts. Thoughts have the power to deliver to you exactly what you want when you think them with persistency and consistency daily. It is your responsibility to stay positive in your thoughts. The Law of Attraction is working constantly whether you believe it or not. It always has been and always will. Take a look at your current results, they are all a result of attracting people, things and circumstances to you based on your previous thoughts.

This means you can choose your results by choosing your thoughts. You can create new thoughts and learn to reject thoughts that do not match up with your vision and goals. Tell yourself “reject”, and cancel any negative thought when you have began to think poorly. Once you have rejected the negative thought, now choose a new thought, create one that is positive and decisive and choose only thoughts that empower you. Those individuals that are masters at using the mind, and choosing their results are always acting and thinking positively and decisively.

“Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and, by means by which no man is familiar, these ‘magnets’ attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.” –Napolean Hill

Fascinating isn't it?!?!

Universal Power of Intent: Learn to Use It!

As you know, I have been studying personal development, the Secret Law of Attraction and other Universal Laws for years and they honestly have changed my life!

I have become much more successful, I have overcome a severe and debilitating chronic illness called Myasthenia Gravis (after many years of it kicking me in the butt---I have kicked it in the butt!!!) I have acquired a sense of knowing and inner peace, I have removed doubt, anger fear and all other negative emotions from my world, I have become a very good attractor, I manifest my goals and dreams very quickly now, often in days or hours. I have worked at this but I want to let you know it really, truly does work. I have discovered my life purpose, that is to educate, inspire and empower others to reach higher levels of health, live fuller lives and live in abundance- an abundance of all good things. Becoming rich is not about the money or the material things, it is about freedoms and needing less as you carry the leverage!

I live so much better, I am happier, I live in the now, I have vitality and energy, I live on a plane of vibrational energy, I live in passion, optimism and gratitude. I want everyone I meet to live this way and feel this incredible feeling. All it takes is a committment and a bit of studying.

You must study, learn, practice and internalize this material in order for it to work. It does not magically change your life overnight, you have to master it.

I have read many books and spent thousands of dollars on various self help programs and these are some of the more inexpensive ones that I feel offer tremendous value, these programs are very good and will help you to live this way, with higher vibrational energy!

Of course my favorite and more expensive program is the SGR program:

But they are all good! I recommend you invest in yourself, in your life and commit to studying this material, I recommend you take as many programs as you can so that you can really master the power of intention!

"In the Universe there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which shamans call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link."
-Carlos Castaneda

Self-Hypnosis: Manifest Your Dreams Even Faster!!

Did you know that you will become much more effective and efficient at attracting that which you desire, when you tap into the Universal force of Intention? When you align youself with the Universal laws, such as the law of attraction, the law of cause and effect, the law of gratitude, the law of circulation and others, you become much more powerful. You must first learn how to impress your goals and ideas to the Universal substance and the best, fastest and easiest way to do that is through meditation or self-hypnosis.

Self hypnosis helps you really connect with the Universe and Infinite Power. I have to admit I struggled with this for a long time. Real mind focus is hard!! Try for a minute to focus on one easy task... count to 10 without any external thought entering your mind.... hard isn't it. I still have trouble doing it! Every time a new thought jumps in, start over.... it takes effort, repetition and persistence to master mind focus!!!

If we are not giving clear detailed descriptions of our desires and ideas to the Universe, our dreams either do not come true as planned or take much longer than we would like. So the trick to fast and efficient manifestations is learning meditation or self -hypnosis. I have bought many programs, books and tapes on these subjects and I did not really "get it" until I took this one:

It is really open minded and work on it, and it will work for you!

What is Your Life Purpose?

The more we dig deeper into self discovery and self improvement, the more we feel compelled to give back to the Universe, serve thee Infinite Power and discover our own unique ulitmate purpose. Each of us, has our own unique ultimate purpose and statement. Many live and die without discovering it. Few venture into the deep and explore themselves and develop an ultimate purpose statement.

Once you do, your life takes on entirely new meaning. Discover your ultimate purpose statement!

Your life will change the moment you do. Begin your journey and identify your intentions, and then the power of intention will allow you to be a connector, an attractor and a tremendous giver!

Quantum Mind Power: Power Your Mind

Wow, is this ever neat stuff! Ok, we have all been studying hard recently and learning the Universal Laws and Law of Attraction. The more we learn, the more we find out that the Mind is a powerful, powerful place and tool. So many people fail to learn and use it. Those that do learn to create, manifest and expect such incredible things.

I recently took this program, as I continue to invest in myself and learn and internalize as much of this material as I can, and found this program to be very powerful and unique.

You will not be disappointed!

Power Your Mind!

Dr. Wayne Dyer: I am a huge fan!

I am a huge Dr. Wayne Dyer fan, I have read many of his books and love his writing style. Recently I bought his "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace" program and found it to be terrific! This will make a perfect holiday gift to many of my family and friends, the program is terrific, check it out!

1/10 People Have Chronic Fatigue

I recently took two really terrific programs focused on teaching ways of being to be that of optimal health and more vitality. 1/10 people visit the doctor due to complaints of chronic fatigue, that is something that I also suffered severely from for years. So I am always looking for information to continue to improve my levels of vitality and health. I am feeling terrific and I found these programs to be very good. Keep an open mind and allow the healing to occur, and it will!

Enjoy your abundant health! You can beat your chronic illness! You can obtain higher levels of health and physical performance independent of your current health status. Optimal health offers a fuller life and better quality of living. You deserve a truly healthy You!

5 A's to an Abundant and Successful Life

The 5 A’s to create a full and successful life:

1) Abundance: life expression includes the mind, body and spirit. Life is always for advancement, growth and increase. Life expression is always for fuller life. Life is meant to be abundant in all ways, in the mind, body and spirit. Focus on abundance, there is only abundance. Do not think of or focus on lack, limitation or anything bad or negative, this includes eliminating these words from your vocabulary: “I cannot” and “yeah butt….” Life, the universe is abundant, remove your self from any and all thoughts that are focused on limitation, lack or competition.

2) Awareness: A successful and full life is one of awareness. There are 7 levels of awareness. As you become more aware and learn to attract more abundance to you, you will gain experience and expertise in your actions and become a mastermind of success.

3) Attraction: The natural law of attraction, is really the law of vibration. Attraction is by way of how we obtain our results. Past, present and future. Learn, practice and master the concepts of the law of attraction so that you become a co-creator of your results. If you do not like your results, you do have the conscious ability and awareness to change your results. You do this my changing your thoughts, feelings and actions from the inside in order to create new results. As these new results become more familiar, they will become your new paradigm or point of attraction. By the natural laws, cause of effect and vibration, you will obtain these new results, review the natural laws including “energy is” and its 7 subsidiary laws.

4) Action: Did you notice that the last half of the word attraction is action? Your actions affect what and who you attract into you life. It is critical that you focus on abundant thoughts and feelings in order to inspire abundant actions, that is how you attract abundance to you. You can choose your thoughts, if this concept is new to you, internalize it now, your thoughts then cause your feelings. We use our emotional guidance system to let us know whether or not we are in alignment with the natural laws of the universe, ourselves and our Higher Power/God/Universe. When we feel good, we are in alignment, when we do not have good feelings, we are not in alignment. We have the capacity to use your conscious mind to change our thoughts in order to create positive feelings, those feelings that raise our vibration. Our feelings cause our actions, then according to the natural law of cause and effect, our actions cause a reaction, that is attraction. This reaction changes our results. The only way you can change our results is by changing our thoughts, feelings and actions that cause new reactions and new results. This can only happen from the inside. Open your mind, and heart and work on performing inspired actions in order to change your results. Expand your mind, grow your success and lead a life of fuller life expression. Your heart only opens from the inside.

5) Attitude: the composite of your thoughts, feelings and actions. Your composite attitude produces your results and your paradigm or conditioning. You have the conscious ability to reject or accept your thoughts in order to create the experience, journey or results that you desire. Your attitude MUST be congruent. You must have a FIT attitude and a FAT attitude. Read on for a FIT and FAT attitude, most of all, make sure your attitude is Abundant!

For more on these levesl of awareness, a composite attitude and living in an abundance mindset, visit: and

Random Act of Kindness: It is Contagious

Random Act of kindness,

To me one of the most powerful aspects of this universe that is based on energy and attraction is the power of random acts of kindness. Just watch how contagious and powerful a random act of kindness can be and see how it transcends any and all negativity in your life in that moment and makes you feel better. It can literally expand across the state, country and globe in a very short time.

We all know this, yet rarely do we actually perform random acts of kindness, these acts can be simple: buy and give a flower to your cashier at the grocery store, run errands for someone who has can use some help, call a friend you have not spoken to in awhile, pick up litter, buy a book for a friend who is struggling, give smiles away, donate your time or money to a worthy cause.

Today, I went through a toll on the interstate and paid the toll for the three cars that followed behind me. Complete strangers. I told the toll attendant that I wanted to give them each a brighter day.

Endeavor to participate in this positive energy and do an act of kindness to someone you know, a patient, a friend or complete stranger. Share it here and watch how the energy grows.

Riding Satan

I went horseback riding this past weekend with my nephews and niece. My horse was named “Satan”. Satan turned out to be a gentle giant; he even followed his leader and stayed on the path.

During our ride, my little niece fell of her horse and broke her wrist. My family was very upset. Negative thoughts and words were flying everywhere. Years ago, before I had learned the power of living in Hope with an abundant attitude; I may have jumped on that negativity band wagon too. Instead, I taught my niece and nephews the “Find the Good” game. It goes something like this; you take a bad situation and turn it into something good. For example, “Kailie fell off her horse, hurt her wrist …..and the good part is we had an opportunity to spend the afternoon outside on a glorious day and enjoy time with family and nature.”

It takes a bit of effort and at first appears to go against our logic, but soon you realize how much better it feels to focus on the good. We spent the entire afternoon playing the “Find the Good” game, it got silly at the end, but we laughed and enjoyed the entire day, Kailie even forgot completely about her wrist. Humans have the inherent tendency to immediately focus on the bad, but every situation “is what it is”. Every situation that is bad, actually has an equally good side. It is just a reflection of our mind, our attitude and a conscious decision on how we respond.

I have been challenged for many years by Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune disease that causes moderate to severe weakness, fatigue and other issues. MG obviously has its hardships, struggles; with potentially physical and emotional pains and losses. I experienced significant losses in all areas of my life and struggled with severe MG for years (decades). But I have realized through my study of healing and advancing my recovery, that even MG, as bad as it has been for me, has many good things too. For example, the good part about MG is ….that I have taken the time, energy and effort to study life success and advancing recovery. Had I not gone through this adversity, I would never had been open minded and open hearted to study, learn and internalize a life filled with Hope and an Abundant Attitude.

So when you are facing massive adversity, and at times MG felt almost unbearable, remember that it is only through adversity that we become who we need to be to reach our goals. Napoleon Hill in the chapter on Persistence in his book "Think & Grow Rich" wrote it so well when he said that " every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent benefit".

May I propose that everyone take an opportunity to think and post at least one good thing that has come out of an experience with adversity. If you feel buried in the issues, may I offer my articles “Change of Focus”, “ABCs of an Abundant Attitude” or “Top Ten List of Positives of the Chronic Illness Experience” to help spark some ideas. All can be downloaded free from my Acquired Hope website at This way of thinking and way of being has allowed my to go into remission and beat my chronic illness. I completely healed myself, I cured myself by changing the way I think and feel, by changing my attitude. As silly as it sounds, it is absolutely possibly, I know it, I did it. You can beat anything, you can change your results in any areas of your life, you just need to learn how and make a committment to do it and persevere. When you commit, the universe bends around you to provide you with all the assistance you need to meet your goals. Acquiring hope and an abundant attitude, living in the now being focused on gratitude and abundance really does provide for a richer, fuller, healthier life!

Thank you for the opportunity to share this “Find the Good” game with you and I hope you enjoy it. Enjoy living in Hope and with an Abundant Attitude!

FIT Attitude

FIT Attitude
I like to think of a full and complete attitude as FIT. A fully FIT attitude is one that has an alignment of Feelings, Intuition and Thoughts. I love the saying that Prayer is when a person talks to God or their Higher Power. But intuition is God or our Higher Power talking to us. A person who has a strong intuition listens to the guidance and Divine inspiration that is running through them. Many people work very hard at developing and maintain a strong sense of intuition. I do. I work at it, daily. So, a fully FIT attitude will be one that is strong and effective because their feelings, intuition and thoughts are all in alignment and they are all working with high, positive vibrations. A person who has a FIT attitude will also see the results that they imagine and desire. They are winning; they also reach their goals on continuously and effortlessly.

I see individuals who are thinking positive thoughts and feeling good, but they ignore that intuition, that Divine guidance and inspiration. It is that Divine guidance and inspiration, the message from your God or Higher Power that leads you to perform inspired actions. It is the actions that ultimately provide you with your results and your condition, circumstance and environment.

Are you working with a FIT attitude?
