My Statements of Being for 2010 and Beyond

Ah, New Year’s Resolutions… how many have we made… and broken over the years? This year making “resolutions” didn’t seem to resonate with me. I want to step further into the ME that my inner/higher self IS. I am becoming more of who I really am. So I decided instead to write “Statements of Being”. Statements of Who I Am and Who I Am Becoming.

 I’ve done a lot of seeking. I know the teachings of Abraham-Hicks, Bashar, Richard Bartlett and countless others. I’ve done a lot of searching for the fundamental questions I had, like who am I and why am I here? I already know the answers. Now it’s time to not only KNOW these teachings on an intellectual level, but to BECOME them, EMBODY them, LIVE them. In every moment possible.
 I write these Statements of Being not only as a statement to the Universe of Who I Really Am, but also as a reminder to myself on days that I seem to forget or find myself really bored and disconnected. Kind of like a spiritual cheat sheet. LOL. It happens to the very best of us… after all, we DID come here for the human experience. So when I find myself lost in my human experience, oblivious to my role as the Observer, temporarily forgetting why I am here and WHO I REALLY AM, I shall read my Statements of Being and remember… once again.

It is the gift I give to myself that will keep on giving, just when I need it.

When I am focused on my connection to All that Is, all these things just happen naturally, I AM BEING my higher self and I don’t have to read a list to remember how to be and who I am. But it’s when I am a little off kilter that these Statements will serve me well as reminders that beam me back up to my heart connection.

I fully believe in the power of writing things down as it sends my passionate desires and statements of being into the Ethers of the Universe and also serves to get me into the feeling/becoming place. It has always worked for me. I keep a Master List such as the one below and then create more detailed lists about various subjects that I break out from the Master List (abundance, health, relationships, homes, careers, etc.) So, I shall continue for this year of 2010, a year that excites and thrills me without yet knowing why.

• I expect the best possible outcome. And so it is.

• Everything always works out for me.

• I am lucky, I am blessed, I am divinely guided at all times.

• I follow my own guidance; I always go with what feels best to me, no matter what others say.

• I know that divine orchestration and divine timing is always in play.

• I let go of limiting relationships and beliefs with ease.

• I came here for the human game, and I play it with joy.

• I do not depend upon other people, places, things, surroundings events for my happiness. Only I am responsible for my happiness. And that gives me all the power over my experience.

• I see others through my broad Source Perspective of Love.

• I know that in any given moment, I have the choice of how I feel, and I choose the higher, broader, perspective of love and well being.

• I notice and appreciate the synchronicities, I notice and appreciate the magic, I notice and appreciate the divine love and well being in everything.

• I take what resonates for me and become it NOW.

• I ask myself “What are the unlimited beliefs I can hold about this and why not think them now?”
• I know that passion creates manifestation, so I acknowledge what makes me passionate and focus on THAT!

• I take complete and total responsibility for anything I create in my reality, and when I perceive something that I have created as not wanted, I look at it as an opportunity to show me what I do want. And then I focus on and get passionate about THAT.

• I always know exactly where I am vibrating and what my beliefs are in any given situation by looking at my checking account, my relationships, what I am manifesting, and if they are not where I want them to be, I do the vibrational/belief work to shift them.

• Just as I want others to allow me to be, I allow others to be. And I BE ME. True to myself. My authentic self. Always.

• I ask myself…. “Is what I am thinking right now what I want in my reality? Is what I am thinking in alignment with who I really am?” If yes, continue thought process, if no, it’s thought shift time.

• Thou shalt follow my bliss.

• I remember to reference these Statements of Being when I need them.

• Feeling good is most important.

• I am in my heart space/vortex and step out for no one and nothing. It feels too good in here!

• This is the year of BECOMING. 2010 is the best year EVER!

• Before writing, talking, acting… I ask, “Does this come from a place of inspiration, from a place of love, does this serve me and others?”

• I am living out loud and singing out loud.

• I bask in my uniqueness.

• I love myself unconditionally and know that I am worthy of all my desires.

• I am keeping my thoughts in the NOW. If I find my thoughts wandering, I gently bring them back to NOW. Like a waking meditation. All the time.

• I am pure source energy expressing in a human body.

• I am basking as Source comes through me as I hold the vibrations of pure love and appreciation.

• I am more cat-like… including taking cat naps when my body asks for them.

• I act from inspiration, not shoulds.

• When I get comfortable in my life and creations, and especially then, I remember to continue expanding through the ways that work for me. After all, we never get it done.

• I am applying the unlimiting beliefs I have about things I already do and manifest well to the areas in my life where I want to create unlimited beliefs.

• I feel first, then think.

• I speak of only possibilities instead of arguing for limitations.

• My beliefs are only thoughts I keep thinking. I can change my beliefs by changing my thoughts and emotional response to them. One by one, or bunches at a time.

• I am thinking the thoughts that match what I want until I believe them. I use my imagination and visualization to feel forward until it is TRUE.

• I am laughing a lot

• When I find myself beginning to resist things that are working for me (listening to affirmations at night, reading a particular book, or whatever), I remember that it is my limiting beliefs fighting for their lives causing the resistance. I remember why I want to change these beliefs, keep doing what is working for me for at least 17 days, and therefore create new unlimited beliefs by rewiring my brain.

• I am of service to others, not out of obligation, but from inspiration.

• I am dancing as if no one is watching

The Power of Repetative Audio Programs (RAPs) for Shifting Beliefs and Manifestation

I recently discovered the power of listening to repeated affirmations, repetitive audio programs (RAPs) while sleeping. When we sleep, we are in an alpha state, a state of non-resistance where our subconscious beliefs are easily tapped into. During the day, we stay focused with positive thoughts, but sometimes our deeper beliefs held on a subconscious level are stamping out our good work.

I have had amazing results in all aspects of my life with listening to looping affirmations while in the state of sleep/non resistance, especially when coupled with bineural beat music, like the Guided Visualization I created.

It's perfect for people like me who don't like to do many processes. I just turn on my ipod and go to sleep. Now that is MY kind of process!

I knew my recorded affirmations were working and could feel the difference for sure, but then I started feeling a resistance...kind of an irritation when I went to put on my RAP playlist before going to sleep that made me want to just put on music instead.

I asked myself what that was about and my guidance told me that it was my limiting beliefs fighting for their lives...the constant affirmations at night were breaking them down and they were resisting being written over with new unlimited beliefs. I knew this was the most important time of all to push through it, keep listening, break on through to the other side!! So after a two or three night break, I started up again.

Truly, I am having amazing results in the way I feel and think. The trick is to stick with it, especially when you feel resistance, as this is a sign that your limiting beliefs are being shifted. Personally, I am really liking this Night Shift thing.

Of course, I recommend the looping affirmations I have created as it covers all aspects of wellness and wellbeing, including weight loss, abundance, worthiness, and more, and there are many others that can be found on the internet. I recommend ones with bineural beats for added sinking in factor!

My Goodbye 2009 Rap Song

Bye Bye Bye 2009
I must admit I did feel fine
But now it's time to say goodbye
I release you, I leave you, I shall not cry

Bye Bye Bye limiting beliefs
Bye Bye people who brought me grief
Bye Bye to thoughts that create unwanted
Bye Bye to feelings that kept me haunted

I say goodbye to say hello
All that doesn't serve me, you have to go
As I release the old, come new thoughts that deliver
What's next, who knows, but it makes me shiver

Bye Bye Bye 2009
I must admit I did feel fine
I love you now and I loved you then
But you can't hold a candle to 2010!

Following Your Inner Guidance & Becoming Your Higher Self

We all have heard about our intuition or inner guidance. Some call it your soul, or higher being or inner being or higher self or even our sixth sense. All of these terms can be used interchangeably because for me, they all mean the same thing: the divine super intelligence that is the bigger part of us, the non physical part of us that is always connected to divine, supreme, higher, God Source energy. It is who we really are. That inner voice, the intuition; that is the God in YOU. You always have access to that. We can’t ask for better inner guidance than that!

We all have that constant, steady, always ready connection to divine God Source intelligence. You are not the lone human on the planet without this guidance. And people, please, God did not stop talking when the Ten Commandments were handed down to Moses. God still speaks through us, through the voice and guidance of our inner being. How cool is that?

It is important to learn to hear and trust that inner guidance. Your higher self always feels good. Being your higher self and listening to your inner guidance is connecting with who you really are; that thin, healthy, happy person who allows themselves to receive all the good that is theirs by divine birthright. YOU know you are worthy and deserving of all that YOU desire when you are connected with the HIGHER YOU.

Using your inner guidance and intuition is essential for a balanced, joyful life. Most importantly, you use your inner guidance to find your inspiration, what turns you on, what makes you go Oh Yeah, Baby!

Use your inner guidance to find what inspires you, your true journey or what I like to call my Divine Path. I know that when I follow the divine signs and messages that come to me, when I follow my inspiration, things easily flow into place. Connections, people, places things come to me that I never could have imagined. That’s when I know I am aligned with who I really am.

When you feel good, you are seeing things through the perspective of your higher self. When you are connected with your Higher YOU is when inspired ideas and magical messages and divine signs come easily and frequently. To be inspired is to be “in-spirit”. When we feel inspired, we are connected to God Source, and from that place we can create anything, including our desired weight.

It’s time to connect yourself with your body by listening to your inner guidance that knows what your body wants and needs. Your body will talk to you in various ways and direct you.

That’s how I knew I was totally aligned with losing weight this time. The journey was easy for me because I had used my inner guidance to show me the way to the best things to eat, how to exercise, and the best thoughts and feelings for quick and easy weight loss.

For instance, when I began my weight loss journey, I was called to order and drink Japanese Green tea. Not the Lipton variety, mind you, but the real stuff from Japan. And it wasn’t just the constant spam about weight loss with green tea that I kept receiving. I just KNEW it was for me. I felt like my body was calling for it. Every time I saw something about Japanese green tea, I felt something resonate within me. Of course, it turned out to be the closest thing to a magic pill outside myself that I could have found. It worked and still works amazingly for me. And I found it by using my intuition, what felt really good to me, not just by reading studies and believing other people’s stories of success.

Here’s another thing I discovered when I really listened to my body and inner guidance. Six smaller meals, instead of three bigger ones, really worked for me. I was never hungry, it was easier and this kept my metabolism up too. Where did 3 meals per day rule start anyway? Who made that rule anyway? Yes, it is the society norm but does this work for everyone? It doesn’t work for me and I no longer eat that way.

It is good to have your own beliefs; you take in all kinds of information from well meaning friends, the internet and books and gleen what feels good and resonates with you. But also don’t get stuck in your beliefs, keep exploring and expanding for what feels good to you. You are unique and the exact combination of foods, supplements and exercise is also uniquely yours. You are looking for the choices that feel good to you, what resonates with you, what makes you feel good.

Don’t let people convince you that something is good for you and you have to try it because it works for them or they think you should do it. Just because something works for one person, it might not work for another. If you have doubts, there is a reason… don’t let others influence you to do something you don’t feel good about. FEEL your way through, listen to your inner guidance and you will be led down the divine path for you! However, if it feels good, do it because often our guidance comes through others. As you listen to your feelings, your guidance, your heart, you will know when it is meant JUST FOR YOU!

"Following another's path leads to who they are, not to who you are." Harry Palmer

Use your own inner guidance on ideas and concepts presented to you. Your guidance is there to lead you on your Path in a divinely guided way, to make it easy and flowing for you. You will just know what resonates with you and will work best for you. Trust it. Go with it. YOU know what is best for you!

If you don’t already feel you have a strong connection with your inner guidance, well you do! You just don’t realize it yet. We ALL have that connection; it is just different for each person.

The easiest way to follow your inner guidance is to allow your emotions be your guide. If you don’t feel good, you are not feeling or thinking about the situation from the perspective of your higher self. In other words, if we feel bad about how we look and get upset and feel like a failure, we are not looking at the situation through the eyes of Source. That’s why we feel bad! Your higher self sees you as perfect the way you are, and when you don’t see you that way, you feel bad.

Many people meditate to connect more profoundly with their inner being. Some find that guidance can flow out through them by writing or typing in a meditative state, others just ask and hear the answer come into their mind or they are shown in a short time the answer to their question by divine signs and messages. You do not need to sit in the lotus position for hours every day. A short 15 minutes done consistently each day is all you need to start connecting on a deeper level.

Edgar Cayce promoted 'creative writing.' He described this as sitting quietly and in a reflective state, even a spiritually attuned state, and then letting thoughts and ideas flow to you, writing them down as they come. Don’t think of these as being for others or for publication. The guidance is for you; it is communication from your higher self, even from God, to your outer self.

That voice you hear when you ask yourself a question, usually the first answer you get, but not always, is your inner/higher guidance. The voice that doubts and says you can’t do it, or it’s not possible or that you do not deserve it is NOT your inner guidance, but the B.S. (belief systems) you have built up over the years. The idea is to allow the voice of your inner guidance overrule and conquer your negative, limiting belief systems.

I asked my friend David how he would tell the average person how to connect to their inner being. He answered the following:

“I would start by saying hi to my inner being. Hello! Inner Being! In other words, I would acknowledge the presence of my inner being and I would affirm or intend to want to become a part of my inner being more intimately on a daily basis.

So whenever I give thought to the fact that I have a much larger part of me on the inside in the unseen world I become more and more a part of that person and I then open myself up to all the benefits of aligning myself with my inner self or my God self or my Source self.

Now if a person is filled with too many outer thoughts to hear their inner being at first, I would consider some quiet time meditation to still the outer voices filling the brain. When all the mind chatter is quieted, one will really be tapping more into their inner being like never before.”

How you communicate with your inner being and receiving divine guidance is very personal to you. And how your higher self communicates with you is also very unique. Some people feel that their inner being is a female, some a male, some a “group”. Some see visions, some hear their guidance like a voice, and for some it is strong urges… or all of them. There is no “right” way to connect and communicate with your higher being. The important thing is to do it, trust it and listen to it.  The more you connect, the more you will easily flow down the river of life!

Why I Love Japanese Green Tea ~ Great for Weight Loss and So Much More!

Japanese Green Tea has been a big part of my weight loss and maintenance.  Here's how I got started:

In June of 2005, I slipped and fell in my bathroom, hitting my face hard on the tile floor. I was shocked when I saw the photos of myself a few days later - not because of the big black eye and bruised face, but because of the size of my body! I looked like a huge blimp! I had to weigh close to 300 pounds, if not more. It was my major wake-up call and I knew I had to do something fast. I had known I was fat, but I didn't realize I was THAT FAT.

I was led to Japanese green tea by my inner guidance, it seemed to be showing up every where, so I started reading a lot of websites about weight loss and green tea and decided to give it a try - the only thing I had to lose was over 150 pounds. I did some research and was impressed with the quality of green teas that were carried by a particular company so I placed my first order. Even Lipton sells green tea these days, but I needed the REAL THING, straight from Japan, something with all the properties and benefits still present in the tea, and definitely not some inferior or highly processed product. I had a long road ahead of me and wanted to be sure I had the full strength weight loss aid to do it right.

On August 15, 2005, I drank my first cup of green tea. Being obese and yo-yo dieting can effect your body in many negative ways. While I have not heard scientific claims regarding this, and I am certainly no scientist, I am 100 percent sure that the green tea regulated my menstral cycle for the first time in many years, and I am convinced that it has positively affected my metabolism as well.

A high quality green tea, when made correctly, is delicious. It nourishes my body in so many ways - I do not feel hungry all the time and I am satisfied with much less food. It has helped me in so many other ways and I felt the difference immediately. For more detailed info on exactly how I lost the weight, please be sure to get on my mailing list!

There is a lot of scientific evidence out there, but I think the proof is in the results and I can wholeheartedly stand behind the weight loss and health benefits of Japanese green tea. Besides my own innner guidance and using my thoughts to become thin, it is the closest thing to a magic pill I have found.

I started out using the green tea bags, which work great. I usually drink 2 cups in the morning and then again in the afternoons. I like it hot the best and think it does the most for your body that way, but it is also refreshing cold on hot days. If I skip a day or two, I find my body craving it! I will also sometimes add Organic Goji Berries to my green tea for a sweeter flavor and a real nutritional punch. (Don't tell the Green Tea Connoisseurs this though! LOL)

There are a lot of different choices out there, but I highly recommend the Uji teas I have listed here, as I have found them to be the best tasting and most effective. This is not a time to sell yourself short and look for the cheap quick fix, like name brand green teas from grocery stores or green tea pills and supplements. I can only recommend the REAL STUFF, direct from Japan, because that is what worked for me.

Now, almost five years later, I still drink my green tea almost daily and take care to make sure I never run out!

Besides weight loss, here are other medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:

  • cancer
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • high cholesterol levels
  • high blood pressure
  • cardiovascular disease
  • lowers blood sugar
  • infections
  • impaired immune function
  • helps stabilize diabetes
  • it makes your skin healthier and prettier
  • assists in weight loss
  • slows the aging process
  • deters food poisoning
  • aids in digestion
  • encourages bowel regularity
  • provides you with a mild stimulating effect without causing sleepless nights
  • prevents tooth decay and fights plaque
What can I say?  Japanese Green Tea ROCKS on so many levels!

Food: Saving Grace at Thanksgiving

Let's face it. For many, Thanksgiving is a much about food as it is about giving thanks. It can be a trying and guilt filled day for those wanting to become thin, but it doesn't have to be. I suggest making a plan before the big day, feel good about your plan, and stick with it. This will save yourself a lot of guilt, torture, self loathing, anger and resentment.

Plan A: Decide that you are not going to let Thanksgiving get you off track. It's just food after all. We live in abundance and there will still be food the day after Thanksgiving; you don't have to eat it all in one day You ill concentrate on the joy and love of being with your friends and family, taste many things, but stick to small portions and not pig out. You will enjoy every bite, chew slowly, and savor the smells and tastes without stuffing yourself to the limit. You will feel strong, satisfied, healthy and proud of yourself.

Plan B: Decide that it's just once a year after all, and no two ways about it, you are going to pig out. You will not torture yourself pretending that you wont and then do it anyway creating feelings of guilt and failure. You are being honest with yourself. Your thin relatives are stuffing themselves and you should be able to eat as much as you want too. You will enjoy every bite, chew slowly, and savor the smells and tastes and eat to your heart's content. The difference is, you shall not feel guilty about it. You will allow yourself this day of feast and commit to it not becoming a week-long binge.

Which plan is best? The one that feels the best to you; the one that you will stick to. Plan A is great if you are on a roll, have been visualizing and Being your thin self and are dreading a day of overeating and what it might do to your self esteem and body. Plan B is great if you know you will not be able to resist and don't want to feel bad about it. By allowing yourself to eat as much as you want this one day, you are less likely to keep binging in the vicious circle of eat/guilt/eat/guilt.

Which ever plan you choose, Have a Joyful and Gratitude-Full Thanksgiving and remember to give YOURSELF thanks too!

Working on My Money & Abundance Beliefs Creates $50,000 (temporarily, but not for long!)

This past week, I have been consciously working on my money vibration...I always have just enough, money shows up in the nick of time when I really need it, but I am tired of playing that game. I want MORE!! So for the past several days I have been doing some conscious work on my money vibe and asking to be shown my sub and not so sub conscious thoughts so I can break free about money.

Thursday, I had a wild experience with a bee that I saved. Bees represent ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE to me. Bees should not be able to fly as their body weight is much more than their thin little wings can support. But yet, they fly. Why? Because they believe they can!! After saving the bee and he flew off, I felt a very profound shift in my reality. I saw the energy around the trees, in the sky, around everything. My vision was very focused but yet unfocused. It’s hard to explain, but anyway, for me it felt weird and wobbly and wonderful. Something was noticeably and deliciously different.

Anyway, a few hours later, I go to the ATM machine to deposit 2 checks. The machine scans the first check, an image of the check shows up on the screen, I verify the amount. I put in the second check. It starts to scan the check, I wait for the image to come up but instead, the screen flashes and blips and a screen comes up that says Verify Deposit Amount of $51,975.00. The ATM had added $50,000 to my deposit!!

I blinked, I quickly processed what the screen was saying and hit OK. Then it asked if I wanted a receipt with copies of the images of the checks. HELL NO! Just give me my card back!

I drive home, check online. Yup, the money is there. My mind races with all kinds of interesting thoughts. "They will catch it" is a prominent one but I also realized that there are no mistakes, only parallel realities and infinite possibilities. Did I just step into the one where I deposited $50,000? There is no one "out there" I make up the tellers, the bank, all of it. Money is energy; transactions of billions of dollars are just flowing right through the air, right through me as they are passed from bank to bank.

I found it very interesting to note some of my thoughts about the money, and some surprising resistance. It was VERY interesting to see my belief systems and thoughts through it all.

I purposely did not check my account again for over 24 hours. Whatever it would be, I was collecting data on my thoughts, feelings and vibration around money. Either way, this was helping me IMMENSELY to note my true vibrations around abundance.

I was practicing stepping into the parallel universe where I HAD deposited $50,000 and it WASN'T a bank error. I was FEELING my way through the whole thing, and as I mentioned above, noticing interesting resistance and other thoughts that came up. I practiced telling myself that there was nothing to "catch", that no bank tellers exist outside of myself, that I was the creator of all of it.

I knew I still had work to do when I heard sirens and my heart skipped a beat when police cars pulled over a car two houses away from me. Of course I had done nothing wrong, I had not spent a cent of it, but I obviously was not convinced that it was "mine" free and clear. LOL

I checked last night. They found it. Minus $50,000. But the value of discovering some hidden beliefs was priceless. I had asked to clean up my money vibration. The U delivered big time in a way I couldn't have imagined. Or was it Jeeves (as in Ask Jeeves, lol), the name I gave the doorman to my sub-conscious thoughts? Whoever it was, my sub conscious B.S. (belief systems) were quickly and easily revealed to me because of my asking and deliberate focus on my money vibration.

It was an amazing experience, I love the exciting, heart thumping game that I set up for myself to check in with my money vibration and bring my limiting belief systems to the very top where they could be exposed and de-bunked.

Next time it will be for reals, that I can promise!

Of course, as always, the Universe continues to play with me with sychronicities. This was the daily message from the Abraham-Hicks Facebook page today:

The question that we would put to you is, "Where is your dominant vibration relative to the subject of allowing money into your experience?"

In other words, when you think about money does it feel more like shortage or not enoughness?'

Here's a better way of putting it. When you think about money does it feel more like insecurity? Or does it feel more like security? Does it feel more like a little fluttering fearful feeling? Or does it feel more like exhilaration?

Every one of you with no exception can answer that question easily. And as you answer the question, you know whether the dominant vibration within you is about your desire -- or is about whatever contrasting experience caused you to formulate that desire.

Abraham-Hicks, San Francisco, CA - 3/16/02

The Wisdom of Will Smith

Send in the Army ~ The Amazing Power of Bee-Lief

(I wrote this back in July of 2008 and just stumbled upon it again due to another bee experience yesterday. It's worth repeating!)

Living in the rainforest in commune with nature can sometimes be a challenge.

I have a big colony of wasps living inside my bedroom wall. They enter from a crack in the wood on the outside. They have been there for at least a year, probably more. We have lived together in harmony. My workers told me to get them out, but I just let them bee (ha ha). As long as I left them alone, they left me alone.

Well, four days ago, I broke our deal, forgot they were there and pounded a shoe on the wall to get the sand out. One came flying at me and stung me right on the face. My face swelled up to monstrous proportions. I was not a happy jungle girl. But it was my fault. I broke the deal.

The next day I was merely raising the plastic window from the rain and wind the night before, and they came flying at me. I got stung eight times. These guys inject a sort of poison, and actually leave small burn holes where they sting. It hurts!!! Bad!!!

Now I had to do something. They attacked me from just getting near. If the entire swarm came at me, they could probably kill me, or at least send me to the hospital. It would seem that we were now at war.

I am one of those “reverence for all life” kind of people and hate to kill anything. When I was a small kid I ran over snails with my tricycle, but when I realized I had actually killed them, I started to cry and since then have tried not to kill anything. Unless my life and wellbeing is at stake! I even refuse to use bug spray, I don’t like to invite poisonous chemicals into my space and kill anything.

But I had to do something. My hand shook as I wrote bug spray on the grocery list (not really, but that sounded more dramatic!) I then got quiet and connected with the wasps. I told them that they would have to go, we were no longer living in harmony and if they didn’t leave, I would have to kill them. I then asked the U to please take care of this problem for me, to somehow remove these wasps so I didn’t have to kill them myself. I decided to let it go for a few days and let the wasps and the U think about it before I took any action.

This morning I was working on the computer and looked over and saw all the wasps swarming outside. I thought that was very strange. But then I looked onto the ledge and there were hundreds of ARMY ANTS entering their home and taking out the eggs and the queen. A constant stream of Army Ants removing the wasps!!!


I am truly amazed at the way the U delivered on my asking. Even I wouldn’t have thought of army ants!!! I was completely blown away at the way this was handled by the U and nature without me having to kill anything. And not one wasp flew into my room, it was like there was an invisible shield, and they only stayed outside even though my room is open with half walls.

Ask and it is Given in ways that you cannot even imagine. The U can deliver ANYTHING, even an entire army!!!


AND today was the real test for me. Where the wasps started to build a new nest after being kicked out of their home in my wall was a bush still way to near my room for me. I said to them, "Okay guys, this is still too close. I need you to move further away, after all, you have the whole rainforest to choose from! Go to your highest good ELSEWHERE!"

And to my amazement, (well, not really at this point) within ONE HOUR I saw them swarming again and they MOVED!!! Far away, to the other side of the property. OMG!! I am the creator of my reality!!!

It's All B.S.!! (Belief Systems) ~ Creating Unlimted Beliefs

What are our Belief Systems (B.S.)?

Beliefs are your building materials, the very blueprint from which you build your life. If you are using a belief system that is out of alignment with your true self, who you really are, you are building a life that does not reflect who you truly are. Belief Systems can be empowering or limiting.

A Belief is just a thought you keep thinking, making it true for you. That means that not all of your beliefs are true. Believing in them is what makes it TRUE FOR YOU. Your beliefs are what you filter all your experiences through. This is why two people can hear the exact same thing, but have two totally different experiences and reactions to it because everything is filtered through each persons belief system.

If you believe you have to work hard for money, then you'd better be prepared for a life of hard work work. If you believe the economy is impossibly broken, you're gonna go broke. If you believe you can never get thin, it’s too hard to get thin, you are too old to get thin, diets never work for you, you are right!

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t — you are right.”
 Henry Ford.

Our beliefs guide everything we do, our actions, thoughts, relationships. But remember, beliefs are a choice! We can choose limiting beliefs or we can choose unlimited beliefs like “Everything always works out for me.” Changing a belief is really just a thought away. And then another thought, and another thought, and another thought. What you believe you receive and achieve!

Limiting Beliefs are like weeds in the garden of your mind. Pick them out so that new, unlimited beliefs can grow!  So how do we find them and pick them out? First of all, if there is an area of your life, say financial, physical, relationships, etc. that you are not where you want to be, you have limiting beliefs that are holding you back in that area. Here’s one way to pluck out your limiting beliefs:

Make a statement to yourself about something you want to be or have such as “I am rich” or “I am thin”. Then listen closely to the “self-talk” in your mind after making the statement. What are the thoughts your mind thinks after each statement? Does it say: “You will never have enough money!” or “Making money is not easy!”? or “You’ll never be thin”, or “It’s too hard to lose weight!”

Ok, you have just found some of your Limiting Beliefs! Now, how to go about changing them?

The first thing is to accept your limiting beliefs without judgment, just observe what your limiting beliefs are. By just observing without judgment, you are releasing the resistance to your limiting beliefs. What you resist, persists! You are not that belief and that belief is not you. They are simply persistent thoughts that you have allowed to become a truth in your life. And now it’s time to change them into unlimited beliefs!

Write down your limiting beliefs on a piece of paper. It might say:
  • I will never be rich
  • I do not deserve to be rich
  • I have always been fat and I am going to stay that way
  • Nothing ever works out for me
  • I never have enough time
  • My job sucks
  • The economy is bad so I don’t have a chance
  • I am afraid of success
  • I am afraid of failure
  • I will never find my perfect partner
  • Etc. etc.
Now, on another piece of paper, write out your NEW corresponding unlimited beliefs, such as:

  • I have everything I could ever want
  • I deserve to be rich, it is my birthright
  • Becoming thin is easy 
  • Everything ALWAYS works out for me
  • I have all the time I need to do what I want to do
  • My job is perfect for now and something even better is coming
  • I am worthy of success and I choose it now
  • There are no failures, only lessons that empower me
  • My perfect partner is seeking me too!
  • Etc. etc.
What I like to do now that I have my list of unlimited beliefs is to crumple up and burn my list of limiting beliefs. It is a symbolic gesture that I now longer accept that belief as true. Then I read my list of new unlimited beliefs and keep it near for whenever I need it.

You can also challenge your limiting beliefs by asking yourself:

  • What would happen if I didn't?
  • What would happen if I did?
  • Who says?
  • What stops me?
  • How do I know?
  • Has it ever been different?
Practicing new unlimiting beliefs, one by one, creates unlimited thinking. Because the truth is, we are truly unlimited beings, only limited by our own thoughts. Let’s start thinking unlimited!

I highly recommend listening to the Joy Vibe Radio program called It's All B.S. (Belief Systems): Releasing Limiting Beliefs and Being the Unlimited You for some great Limiting Beliefs De-Bunking!

Defining Your Desires

WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT? Getting clear on what you truly desire is essential because in order to get what you want, you need to know what that is. How can the magical Universe give it to you if even you don’t know what you want? You gotta tell em’! You want to be thin, you say? Well, of course, but what else? This is not just about “I want to be thin.” How will you feel in your thin body? How will your clothes feel? How will you interact with people and how will they interact with you? How do you want to walk, feel, relate to others? How will your life feel to you with the body that you desire? We want the nitty gritty details that create the Attractor Factor!

By defining what you truly desire, you start feeling how it would be to have these things in your life, and this brings more of what you want to you. It also begins to take your mind off that which you don’t want, because when you talk and think about what you don’t want, you are bringing those things into your vibration also. You are focusing on it, thinking about it and therefore attracting it to you. Focus and think only about what you do want! It’s a Law of Attraction thing.

Also, by getting really clear on what you desire, you just might find that you have resistance and deservabiltiy issues to actually having them, and then you can deal with those one by one as they come up. You have to really want it, feel that you deserve it and be it for this to be an easy journey.

For me, writing down all my desires let’s me feel that it is done, that I have handed over to the Universe and I can let it go, not worry about the how's and when's and details. But many people feel it and then go through the thought process of, “that will never happen, how can it happen, when will it happen”, and they negate all their good work and intentions. Let the Universe work for you. Tell your new story and stick with it! The more you tell it, the more you believe it. The more you believe it, the more it becomes reality.

You'll see it when you believe it.
Wayne Dyer

I have found that putting true passion behind your desires brings them closer to you faster. Passion is a major Attractor Factor. Defining your desires and getting excited about them is what creates the passion and inspiration that makes them manifest easily and quickly. It gets you into that feeling place of already having them and that’s where you want to be.When you get clear on your desires and know what you truly want, you feel inspired. And when you are truly inspired, ideas and connections and opportunities come to you that you couldn't have even imagined. Let the magic begin!

I Have A.D.D.!

Yep, that's right.
Attention Divinely Directed
That's my new definition of the "disease" and "disorder" labled as Attention Deficit Disorder.

Wikipedia says: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or AD/HD) is a neurobehavioral[1]developmental disorder.[2] ADHD is defined as a “persistent pattern of inattention or hyperactivity—impulsivity that is more frequently displayed and more severe than is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development.”[3] While symptoms may appear innocent and merely annoying nuisances to observers, "if left untreated, the persistent and pervasive effects of ADHD symptoms can insidiously and severely interfere with one's ability to get the most out of education, fulfill one's potential in the workplace, establish and maintain interpersonal relationships, and maintain a generally positive sense of self."[4].2

I say PHOOOEY on that label!! It's just a made up disorder to put a label on people who think fast and who have inspired thoughts coming quickly, who are always looking for something interesting and fun and entertaining and are bored when not inspired.

Some of the most intelligent people I know have been labled as A.D.D.  Richard Bartlett, founder of Matrix Energetics is one of them. I am sure there are many more.

What makes someone deficient if they get bored or distracted by things that don't inspire them? I say they are divinely guided to what DOES inspire them!

I didn't pay much attention in school. Nor was I a "focused" worker when I worked in office jobs that I was only doing to make money. But baby, look at me now!! Yep, I have Attention Divinely Directed, and I'm doing just FINE!!

Start Telling a New Story!

What story about your life do you tell to yourself and others? When someone asks how you are doing, do you go into a tale of how your husband doesn't treat you well, or how you got screwed in the divorce, that your kids are losers, that you have this illness and that pain, that you can't seem to do anything right, that you'll never be thin, that you are broke, or some other sad story?

The story that you focus on and tell on a consistent basis is what you are creating more of in your life. We get what we focus on. Every time. By speaking constantly of the things we don't want, we create more of it in our lives. We speak of it to anyone who will listen, we join groups about it, we tweet about it, we blog about it, and there it is. Always. More of what we don't want. Created by ourselves by focusing on the things we don't want and holding them close to us.

But what if we start to tell the story how we want it? What if when someone asks how we are, we focus on all the GOOD in our lives. What if we start creating a new story? A great example of this is a woman who wrote to me with a long, sad story detailing what she wanted to do, but all the reasons why she couldn't do them. She was limiting herself and holding herself back with her own words. This is what I wrote to her:

Now take a few minutes and write the story the way you want it to be, with the outcome that you want. If your heart is in the writing of the story the way you want it to be, then you will feel the shift of energy for that to actually begin to manifest. Remember, you can be do and have anything you want. Continue only to write and tell the story the way you want it to be and this creates the passionate and positive energy flow to make all of it come to pass quickly and easily.

I cried tears of joy when she wrote back to me:

Thank you for your email - you are right. I have re-read your email a few times and I do agree...I have re-written my story. I carry it with me everywhere I go and I look at it when I feel slightly down. I thought I would share it with you:

"I am a beautiful woman with exotic features and a gorgeous body. I am at my perfect weight all the time. I love my body and feed it well - I follow whatever my palette desires, food is indeed my friend. I love my work-outs and dressing up in the morning - this is my time to re-connect with myself and revel in the joy of being ME. Life is very natural and easy for me, I receive ABUNDANCE in all areas of my life - health, wealth, professionally and in all my relationships. All opportunities are presented to me in good time, in alignment with my vibrational offering. I believe that all is vibration and I believe in miracles. I thoroughly enjoy what I do for a living. I believe strongly that personal power comes in pursuit of one's passion. I believe I can have it all - and I know it will come easily to me. As I begin to become clear about my career and its path, I will begin to see progress, change and success. I am surrounded my endless opportunities for success and I am not limited by my current place of residence. There are many like me who have desired their jobs into being and I can do the same. I am an inspiration to myself first and I am bound for success!"

This is how to tell a new story! Stop talking about the things that you don't like and want to let go of. Start talking about the things that you want to come to pass as if you have them right now. Practice telling your new story as often as you can. It might take you a while to stop telling your old one since you have been telling it for so long. But you will soon see that you stop yourself when the old story begins to come out and instead you tell your new one. And then it will become automatic and you will be amazed how quickly your new story becomes reality. The faster you become it, the faster it becomes you!

Not Guilty! Eating with Joy

Eat too much Halloween candy? Already sampling Thanksgiving Dinner? Can't keep your fingers out of the cookie jar? Well, you are not alone. And you are not alone in the guilt that you feel during and afterwards either.

The thing is, thin people eat Halloween candy, they enjoy every bite and don't spend days in depressed guilt. They get on with it. They ate it, it was good, carry on! This is an attitude that most is beneficial to adopt and emulate. Think like a thin person, become it now!

If you are going to eat something, eat it with JOY, not guilt as guilt carries a lot of calories and emotional baggage. If we tell ourselves we can't eat it, it's bad for us, it will make us fat and then eat it anyway, that is the worst thing you can do for you and your body physically and emotionally. It's an emotional tug o' war and because we eat it with guilt, our bodies hear the message "bad for you, fattening" and therefore process it that way, causing you to gain weight quicker.

If there is something you truly want to eat, then stop tormenting yourself and eat it with JOY. Allow yourself to eat it without guilt and you will probably find that you will eat less anyway because it is no longer a "forbidden" food, and that takes away half the seduction and temptation. Try guiltless eating and see how much better you feel emotionally and your body feels physically.

Let go of the guilt. Think like a thin person. Today is truly a new day, ready for you to create the new YOU!

Music for Manifestation

I have been enjoying the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins cards by Doreen Virtue for years. They always seem to give me just the right message at the right time.

One night the time was right. I picked a card. It was Music for Manifestation. I shuffled the deck well and picked again. MUSIC FOR MANIFESTATION. Wow, twice in a row!! I shuffled the deck REALLY GOOD for several minutes while I watched something on TV and picked again:


My friend told me that from a deck of 44 cards to pick the same card three times in a row after a good shuffle, the odds are in the millions or BILLIONS even. WOW. I love how the Universe goes out it's way to give us the messages we need to hear.

The card says: "To manifest rapidly, think of your desire while you chant, hum, sing, or play music."

I love to sing. When I am singing I feel so connected to Source, I have not a worry in the world, I feel free and it is absolutely a form of meditation for me.

I thought about it, and I had not been singing recently. It had been about four weeks since I put on my favorite songs and had a singing session. I also realized that I had been going through a bit of "low vibration period" for the past four weeks, actually in a place that is very out of the norm for me.

Well, after this one in a billion message from the Universe, I immediately put on my Ipod and started singing! And you know what? I FELT SOOOOO AWESOME!! I felt the old me coming back, but even better!

For me, music is one of the best ways to move myself up the emotional scale. No matter how down about something I might feel, I can put on my favorite songs and immediately feel better. Music is a great tool for raising my vibrations!

I know now that the feelings I feel when I am singing, JOY, BLISS and NO RESISTANCE is the perfect time to think about and picture my desires. We manifest what we think about, what we put emotion behind, what we put PASSION and DESIRE behind, and that is how I feel when I sing. Passion, desire, all that good stuff. So of course that is the best time for me to visualize and dream and CREATE MY REALITY!


Music for Manifestation. How cool is that?

The Law of Attraction is Always Working...Even When We Wish it Wasn't!

My bedroom in Costa Rica is up on the point, with a panoramic view of the ocean. When I still had the eco lodge we put up signs around the property that pointed and guided people to the public areas and away from my room. When I closed the lodge, I left the signs up as people still often came to the property and wandered around.

One of the reasons I closed the lodge was because of the lack of respect for privacy some of the guests had, walking right into my bedroom as if it was part of the "jungle show". Because I lived on site, people thought I was available 24/7 and even at night, while I was in my bedroom with the door closed. People would come to my door, and sometimes, like mentioned above, just walk right in, even though I have "private" signs on BOTH sides of my door. One guest even sat down and started watching TV!!! This was my private bedroom!!

One day a woman arrived who had been at the lodge several years ago to film a program called "Quiet Places". She is very nice and came with a friend of hers. She asked if they could stay. I said sure.

After about an hour, she comes walking right into my room to ask me something. I was very nice to her as I backed her out as I spoke to her. I hadn't cleaned my room yet (living with 3 macaws, 4 dogs and a cat, besides it being a totally open space with only half walls, it gets dirty REALLY FAST), and I was annoyed that she would walk right in without knocking.

A little later I was talking to my friend Jerry who was visiting and I went on and on about how people don't have respect for other's privacy, how I would NEVER EVER just walk into someone's bedroom like that, etc. etc. etc. bla bla bla....

So, guess what I attracted by putting my attention onto what I don't want?

About an hour later after my rampage about privacy, or rather the lack thereof, I had just gotten out of the shower, and I had the music blasting. My bedroom door is split, I can just close the top, or just close the bottom or both. I had closed the top half knowing that my friend might walk in again and that would slow her down and I had left the bottom open so the dogs could get in and out.

I am brushing out my hair and this lady I had never seen before in my life actually peeks her head under my door and starts to walk in, under the closed door with two privacy signs on either side! I must have looked horrified, well, because I was!! She said, "if this is not a good time..." I didn't even know what to say.. She goes on to explain that she is a friend of someone that I knew in the Bahamas when I was doing dolphin swims there that I haven't had contact with for years. She and her boyfriend were looking for a place to stay. I explained as nicely as I could, considering that I was in shock, that I do not have a hotel anymore and to please go to the tent camp next door and that if she wanted to talk to me, she could return the following day.

She and her boyfriend left and I just had to laugh because I knew that by my putting attention to what I didn't want, people not respecting my privacy, AND especially by going on and on about it, I had MADE IT EVEN BIGGER!!! Oh, bless the Law of Attraction! It always keeps us in check and this was a great and obvious reminder.

Don't focus on what you don't want. Don't complain about it, don't blog about it, don't join groups against it, don't hold yourself in the vibration of what you don't want by focusing on it! I focused on lack of privacy and that was EXACTLY what I got a lot more of.

I have learned to only focus on what I DO want. I have learned that the Law of Attraction is ALWAYS at work, and so it only makes sense to keep my wants and desires and how I want things to be in my range of focus. I love this because it means it is up to ME what I create in my reality. It's my choice. It's the law!
