What would have to happen for you to live the live you love?

I was listening to a speaker this past week talking about getting what we want most in life. There was a paradoxical nature to what he said. The topic was drawn from the book, “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles. What he said that made me sit up and pay attention was that often when we have a strong desire, we spend our time dreaming about that, rather than focusing on actions required for the present moment, making constructive use of our daily work “in a certain way.”

That’s right. Wattles said that even as we hold our vision, we should ACT with faith and purpose on the job we have right now. If we do that, we will get the job we want. The effort to put our passion to our daily job pays off.

Wallace had several Do’s on this topic —

Do focus on vision. Do what you can from where you are with what you have.

Do work to grow your self. As you grow, the power of purpose will radiate from you.

Do act when a compelling opportunity is presented. Ask if there is potential and if you are willing to take the risk. When you feel impelled, take the step.

Do today’s work today and trust the LAW is at work. If you look to advance, whatever obstacles present themselves will vanish as you find a way over, through or around them.

Keep moving forward and know that you will be resourced with that which you need. Go on in full faith. Do something small that moves you in the right direction.

Hold onto your belief that you can find success. If you feel you have failed, what did you learn or gain out of the situation? This or something better yet.

You have all that is required to achieve our dreams as long as we work “in a certain way.”

When you’re ready to learn more about the power of vision and the step by step, reliable process that gets us where we want to be, you are invited to attend one of my vision workshops. The next workshop is scheduled at 9:00am Saturday April 24, 2021 via Zoom. Watch for my upcoming posts or post a comment here that you would like more information about upcoming dates.

Have a beautiful day.

I believe in you,

Rebuilding Your Life Radio on the horizon

What have you been doing, learning or experiencing over the past few months?  I’ve been fortunate to be able to start a dream project while “staying at home” during the pandemic.  

Now, I’m pleased to announce that my podcast “Rebuilding Your Life: Moving from Disaster to Prosperity” is morphing into Rebuilding Your Life Radio.  We’ll still be providing information and inspirational stories to help people rebuild their lives while also giving authors a place to tell their stories and share their expertise with an ever growing audience. I hope you’ll enjoy visiting with them on a regular basis as much as I do.  

Information on two of the new episodes is posted below.  Both books are available on Amazon. – Jean Nielsen talks about the near death experience she memorialized in her book, Almost to Heaven.   I’m amazed by the clarity of detail one has in remembering this event, and the impact it has on your life from that time forward.
– Samyama Flowering Tree is a spiritual teacher with a profound background in the Himalayan Yogi-Christ tradition.  Here, she talks about her history, shares a meditation to allow you to experience the connection between your Higher Self and your more temporary, day-to-day self, as well as her insights into the current global health crisis.  Her book, Karttikeyan Yoga Nidra, progressively provides several meditations for your personal growth. 

If you missed the first season of “Rebuilding Your Life: Moving from Disaster to Prosperity”, it is available on iTunes and Stitcher.  Guests joining me during the first season include: Noah St John, Kym Douglas, Sandra Anne Daly, Uma Girish, Helen Sherry, Melissa Schulmann, Sara Hathaway, Jeanette Pavini and Pam Fitros.  

Let’s start rebuilding!  There’s no time like the present to begin.  I believe in you.  

To Your Success,

Drawing on Resilience during Difficult Times

Photo by Rakicevic Nenad on

We lost a dear friend this week.  He was in his 80s, a witty, energized and always ready for the next adventure type of person.  But he gave up this month after a chain of health crises. He had been on dialysis for a year, then suffered a minor stroke, but the straw that broke the camel’s back was a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.   I believe he wanted to pass on his own terms and stopped going to dialysis.  He had run out of resilience during this difficult time.

Twenty years ago, I lost another friend.  Again, she was an international trainer in psychosynthesis.  She had phenomenal resilience, but she had been in a traffic accident that left her with only 15% mobility.  After two years, when the people she loved most were not strong enough to support her, she too ran out of resilience.  I was angry with her at the time.  She had so much to give regardless of her disability, but she hated it.  It took me a long time to forgive her.  This week I finally see that I am more tolerant of the cumulative effect of crises that affect our decisions.

So far, I have been resilient through the most difficult challenge in my life – a landslide that destroyed our home.  We had the courage to stand back up and declare to the Universe that we are survivors.  We used the energy from our pain to reclaim our power and marshal through the experience, one tiny step at a time.  Where did that strength, courage and resilience come from?

First and foremost, I believe it is supported by faith in a Higher Power – Source energy, Quantum Consciousness, God, all that is.  When I came home the night of the landslide, I had a sense of a divine presence being with me, holding my hand.  That sustained me.

And then there was my father.  He has been gone for 40 years already, but my memories of the stories he told when I was a little girl provided a role model of how to be resilient and take corresponding actions.  One of my favorite stories was one he shared about Christmas toy lines for poor children.  My dad came from very humble origins.  He was dirt poor, raised in East Texas.  He described his home as a place you could see through the walls, not the windows, the walls.  And he ate clabber, a Southern delicacy, Not.  It is curdled milk, a yogurt like texture with a strong sour taste.

Each year at Christmas, the town held a toy giveaway.  All the poor children could come, line up and receive a gift for the holiday.  What stood out in my Dad’s story was that he analyzed how the line was managed.  He observed that the organizers gave out one extra large present every so many people, like clockwork.  He determined to work the system.  He began to let people pass him in line so that he would reach the giveaway location exactly when the big present was to be given – and that is what he was given.  Pretty ingenious for a young boy and an unforgettable example of creative thinking.

Whatever you are going through right now, you are stronger than you think.  You can find your connection to the greatest help imaginable.  You can dig down deep within yourself and find the resilience to keep moving forward.  You can stand up and start putting one foot in front of the other.  As the old Quaker saying goes, “Pray and move your feet.”

On Saturday, May 9th, 9:00am Pacific time, we are going to be looking at what we can do to adapt and thrive in what may be a “new” economy.  Dr. Randall Bell is our guest during the Train Your Brain, Claim Your Power call.  Dr. Bell is a sociologist and economist who specializes in helping governments, insurance companies and individuals mitigate the effects of disasters.

You are welcome to join the Zoom call or receive the replay.  Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.  I look forward to sharing Dr. Bell’s thoughts on this crisis with you.

Be safe.  Be well.  Stay upbeat.  We are all in this together and we will get through it.

I believe in you,

You Are Not Alone

Photo by Rakicevic Nenad on

What a strange month it has been.  One month ago, we left our office on a 2-week furlough without any idea of when we would return.  We still don’t know when we will be able to get back to work.  Most of us are sequestered in our homes. For many, it’s been a time to work from home or find a variety of other things to do: special projects, the things we never get to, and tackling the clutter we say we always want to eliminate, keep us busy, but it is a challenge to let go of the pace and busyness of our normal lives.  We miss the social interactions we have in the grocery store, the gas station, on the phone, at the office.  There is a loneliness to this.  To which I say, you are not alone.  We are all in this together.

For many, it is also a time to go deep within through prayer and meditation, asking for guidance for thoughts and actions.  We want to make sense of it all. How can we find meaning in any of this?  It is a time for reflection.  It is a time to ask, to inquire and to reach out to others.

It is written – ask and you shall receive.  Can you center in the asking?  Can you rest and trust in that space?  Can you feel the presence of Light and Love and Power?  Be still and know the presence.  Be still and know your source.  This is quantum consciousness, here before all things, all that is, has been, will be and all that remains, that in which we live and move and have our being.

Be still and listen.  Welcome the guidance for you are loved.  Together we will create something entirely new, proceeding in an orderly fashion out of that which has gone before.  Be willing to receive.  We read the word: “Be strong for I am with you.”  You are not alone.

As we open to receive, we take action to help one another.  United we stand, divided we fall.  Each day I look to the news to learn what new actions have been taken by ordinary Americans and our businesses to reduce the suffering and concerns of the people that make up our nation. I am inspired by the heroism of those in the front lines – the medical teams that save us, the services that stay open to keep us fed, the truckers and transports.   I am uplifted by the ingenuity and flexibility of so many people who have shifted their focus to serve the common need.

Face masks have been a struggle to obtain.  Among the first movers in industry who responded to the call were those who were able to think out of the box and shift what they currently manufactured.  MyPillow converted one of its buildings to face mask production.  Buck Mason pivoted from sportswear to face masks.  The Patriots chartered a plane to bring face masks from China.  Brooks Brothers began making 150,000 face masks daily. This morning, Etsy reports thousands of people selling face masks – designer face masks – as an example of Americans to help #standwithsmall.   You-Tube is filled with videos on how to make masks from bandanas and hair ties, and waxed paper.

There was great concern we would not have enough ventilators.  Florida International University turned its innovative labs into 3D printing facilities.  HP now uses it 3D printers to make ventilators and there are other large companies who stepped up to the plate as well.

Faulkner Plastics began making face shields.  Six hundred distilleries like Bicardi switched their production from liquor to hand sanitizers.  Other manufacturers began making hospital gowns.

Over the weekend, a NYC lawyer offered his services for free to help those who are suffering from the impact of the virus.

As empty as Easter services were, there was an effort to still celebrate with drive-in services.  A woman struggling with deep personal problems was drawn to a church filled with such cars.  As the minister called for them to turn on their hazard lights together, she was moved from a breakdown to a breakthrough.  Live streaming has filled the hearts of many from church to church and attendance is up.

Early on, restaurants who were able to do so switched from seating their guests to service take out.  Shake Shack created a new offering – Go Belly where you pick up the supplies you need to cook the meal at home.  They were among others searching for ways to ensure liquidity and keep people employed and available.  Other restaurants like Yoga-urt in Los Angeles opened a Go-Fund me page to keep her employees working while they provided their product to healthcare providers. KFC donated 1,000,000 pieces of chicken for the health care providers.  A pizza parlor donates meals to frontline workers.  Fire departments are celebrating the heroism of first responders with parades of fire trucks, lights flashing.

Eastern Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines helped fly stranded Americans home from around the world.

Tom Brady’s company TB12 started offering virtual workouts for health and mindset.

Comedians began to tip their toes into the waters wearing outrageous hazmat gear in public.  Arnold Schwarzenegger donated $1,000,000 for masks.  Dolly Parton gave $1,000,000 for research.

My point is this, there are numerous ways we can help or be helped during these times regardless of our pocketbooks or status.

Now that the first discussions have started about how we are going to come back to normal productivity, many of us are already committed to doing whatever it takes to get back to business.  This is not the time to sit back on our heels.  Instead, we can step out in courage as soon as we’re given permission to do so.  It’s up to us – it’s up to me to make things happen.

To do this, we’ll need to work at managing our mind and emotions.  Get centered.  Use a calming peace process to help you.  Stay open to inner guidance for how you can make a difference.

Keep holding your vision.  This is one time when you can clearly see what is stopping you.  Don’t let it.  Use the time to find ways around, over, under and through the circumstances and get more proactive.  We can plan how we will emerge.

Ask yourself how you serve others and what you can do right now to continue to serve.  Maybe you can’t get out of the house, but you have a phone and a computer.  Maybe you can help coordinate the work of other organizations who have stepped up to the plate.

Ask yourself if you can use your assets, skills and expertise to offer something new.  Consider helping others by giving it away.  Ask yourself what is on everyone’s mind, what they want and need, then create products, services or information that helps them to get it.

Get it done yesterday using a simple plan that can be executed today rather than a complicated plan that takes a year to roll out.  If you need help creating a plan, look for people who can help or teach you how to do it.

Remember you are not alone.  If you need help, reach out.  Reconnect with people you never have time to call or someone who comes to mind.  Reconnect with yourself.  Look at how you live your life and what you want.

If you want to feel better by helping someone else, check out #AmericaTogether, #Strong, #alonetogether.  Love one another.  If you want to help others by donating, find your favorite charity and find out what they need.  Give blood.  Give plasma.

We will come through this time.  And we will come back stronger for the lessons learned.  You go, America!

Be strong. Be well. Be safe.  Be inspired.

I believe in you,
