16 Keys to Happiness

Happy people tend to be healthier, enjoy work more, live longer, be more successful...the list goes on and on.

Happiness is a choice.  It is not a matter of your circumstances. Here are some choices that happy people make to lead happy, love-filled, healthy, successful lives!

1. Release resentments. Hey, I believe resentment ruins more great resentments.  Learn to communicate and let go. You will find that misery does not love company. Instead, be one to forgive easily.

2. Practice random acts of kindness. Every time you reach out to do something kind, your brain produces serotonin, a hormone that eases tension and lifts your spirits. Start practicing random acts of kindness and you will find your entire day brightens.  Offer to return a grocery cart for someone, grab a second cup of coffee to give to someone.

3. Express gratitude for what you already have! If you are reading this, you are already in the 1% club of people in the world.  As you write or say out...

The #1 Manifesting Mistake You Can Easily Avoid

Uncategorized Apr 06, 2017

Stop telling your friends and family what it is that you want to manifest.

SHHHHHHH.....don't tell!

If you've read my bestselling book, The Power of Manifesting you will know that one of the secrets to manifesting is, "Don't tell anyone what you want to manifest!"  I learned that secret from Dr. Wayne Dyer over 15 years ago.  

I didn't know why, but then I realized that when you tell someone what you want to manifest, you slow down manifesting in two ways.

1. You are wanting others to help you/join you.  

When you are wanting others to help, you instantly put what you want to manifest in someone else's hands. It's sending a private message to the Universe that you don't believe you have everything within you to connect to the all powerful source and create it.  

If you feel like someone SHOULD help you, that stops manifesting completely.  It's called entitlement.  Entitlement and manifesting don't mix. Watch out for that.

Manifesting is an Art and Science

art manifesting science Apr 06, 2017

Recently I shared The Power of Manifesting with Gary Barnes and his coaching clients.

Manifesting is an art and a science.  I could talk for hours and hours on the subject.  It fascinates me. I remember as a little girl walking in the woods with my father.  With us was a water-witcher.  This man was long and lanky, older  gentleman.  He brought out a wishbone type of tree branch. As we walked through the tree line just west of our home in rural South Dakota, he was dowsing for a water vein many feet below the soil we were standing on. His ability to find the vein would be the difference of my family spending $15,000 to drill a well that hit water, or $15,000 to drill a well that produced little to nothing.   Click here to download the audio

Declare and Celebrate Manifesting

Last night, I had a client call me and wonder if he had indeed manifested. He then went on to relate a story of how he happened to purchase raffle tickets on two separate occasions, and both times he had won the prize that he said that he really wanted! These events were only a couple of weeks apart!

So what do you think? Did he manifest?

As we begin to open up and become aware of how we attract things to us, we will witness events of synchronicity. Then, we will begin to wonder, "Did I really just manifest that, or was it going to happen no matter what?" As the Law of Attraction states, "Like attracts like." So, I suggested to him (and, I'm suggesting to you) that it would be VERY beneficial if he just outright declared and accepted that this is truly manifesting! Why? Because if he declares and celebrates manifesting, he will attract more of the same! I suspect that after reading my bestselling book, The Power of Manifesting, that he began to experiment and intend to manifest...

Stressed Frustrated and Stuck

We've All Been There Haven't We?  Stuck. Frustrated. Stressed. We've all been in that place where we have been beating our head against the wall and getting nowhere.  It seems the harder we try, the more useless our efforts become.  This place of frustration and "stuckness" shows us very specifically the power of the unseen in the Universe.  It shows us the power that our feelings and mindset have over our physical action.  How? When we are frustrated, upset, or fearful that things are not going to work out, we send a message to the Universe in a frequency that sends circumstances and situations that match that vibration of feeling.  When we are caught in this vibration, nothing goes right.  No matter how hard we try, we will stay right where we are like we are held in that place by some kind of invisible force field.  We blame this on bad luck.  If we see someone in this cycle, we think to ourselves, "Wow, she just can't get a...

Take Advantage of This #1 Manifesting Resource Few People Use

Uncategorized Mar 06, 2017

One of our most squandered resources is asking our Divine Guidance Team for exactly what we want.

So, what is a "Divine Guidance Team"?

Your Divine Guidance Team is that Higher Source that is available to you.  It is different for every person on the planet.  It may be made up of angels, Ascended Masters, personal guides, deceased relatives, Jesus, God, Allah. You may hear it as a voice or as your intuition or your gut instincts.

I experience my Divine Guidance Team ready as ready and waiting to help me with all kinds of things.  I can't see them, but they are as real as a person sitting across the table from me.  

Because we have a tendency to ignore them, they are bored and don't pay much attention to us until we are ready to pay attention to them.

Imagine if you had 200 employees (or 100 children) and you never asked them for anything, you never talked to them and you completely ignored them, they would give up paying attention to you and would probably go to...

Do You Love Your Space?

Years ago when I first studied feng shui, I learned Four Guiding Principles which really have become a foundation for my life.

1. Everything is energy.

2.  Intention is most important.

3.  Your space reflects your life.

4.  Use nature as your model.

These principles were developed by Grandmaster Professor Thomas Lin Yun who developed Black Sect Feng Shui:  feng shui that is westernized from its eastern heritage.  I taught many classes in Minneapolis years ago, and since my recent move to Dallas, TX have rediscovered a passion for helping others through feng shui.

Your space reflects your life simply means that what is going on your life can be observed by what is happening in the environments you spend the most time in.

In feng shui, we use a map of the nine life areas (a Bagua) and apply it to desktops, rooms, homes and offices.  We then use this map for clues to what is happening in our career, relationships, prosperity, etc.  Not only can we...

HELLO!! Just say yes!

As my friend Hugh Gilbert, author of Free the Unicorn, explained to me only a few days ago, not receiving sets the Universe out of alignment.  "By not receiving what you project [giving out] you are disrupting universal flow ..." so with that said, it is a myth that it is better to give than to receive. Everything we ask for is given.  It is always right there.  Sometimes, it is hidden behind the veil of what we cannot see because we are not open to seeing it because we are not open to receiving it.  It only SEEMS that what we asked for hasn't arrived. A few years back, I was coaching someone who had tried several logical ways to get money (about $400,000) from a bank. That is how he wanted to receive.  Makes sense, right?  Well, he was turned down 30-some times.  I, also, couldn't figure out why the banks wouldn't loan him the money because his deal looked rock-solid on paper.  We used some manifesting tricks to open up his...

The Power Of Intention

Did you watch The Secret? I know that many people became familiar with the Law of Attraction when they watched the 2006 cult film, The Secret. Or, they were likely introduced through the teachings of Abraham Hicks.  Well, my introduction to manifesting and the Law of Attraction really began when I studied with Carole Hyder at the Wind and Water School of Feng Shui for two years starting in 1999.  It was through her teaching and affiliation with His Holiness, the late Grandmaster Professor Thomas Lin Yun founded the Fourth Stage of Black Sect Tantric Buddhism (BSTB), that I began to live by the Four Guiding Principles:

  • Everything is Energy
  • Intention is Most Important
  • Your Space Reflects Your Life
  • Use Nature as Your Model

His Holiness introduced BSTB to the West in the early 1970’s. He transformed ancient Buddhism and Chinese philosophies to adapt to the modern life  and challenges of the western world.  Traditional compass school (eastern...
