When visualizing always focus on the end result of whatever
 it is you want. Don't let other unrelated images enter your mind 
about the hows, whys, and wheres of its attainment.
Know what you want and imagine it done.
A dream is just a dream until you can see yourself in the picture.
The function of the human mind is to dream.

The Moon

The Voyage

The Voyage

Your dreams are gifts
that set you in motion
on the tides of time
where life is an ocean.
And your sails are filled 
with the winds of desire
to surge through the waves
of murk and mire.
But when you awaken
with your goal at hand,
you'll see your true destination
was the voyage not the land.

-Mike Dooley

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, 
compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, 
and tolerant of the weak and strong, 
because some day you will have been all of these."

-George Washington Carver
The biggest risk of life isn't making mistakes; it's regret, 
missing out on things. Don't be afraid to take a chance.
When the outside world seems too difficult to take, and the stress 
 in your life becomes overwhelming, look inside for your strength.
The simple completion of each day is an achievement.
"Make each day your masterpiece."

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

Just as your thumb makes a print, unique and individual - that type of thumb has never existed before and never will again. It belongs to you; there will never be another like it. The same is the case with your being. You are a being who is unique and individual, incomparable, and only you have it.

"To see the world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower. 
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour."

Home Made Thank You Card

We've all gotten greeting cards before. But have you ever received a card 
that was hand made from the person who was giving it? I bet most people would realize that a hand made card is a lot more special than any store bought choice. Making a card yourself takes time and effort. And you actually have to write the words! Anyone can do it, but rarely does anyone take the time. In today's world it is easier to pick one up while at the grocery store, and pay a few bucks for convenience. Sure, store bought cards are still very nice and thoughtful, but I encourage, if you have the time, make one yourself. 
Its easy! And fun! And you will feel a sense of accomplishment when 
it's done. It is good for the soul to be creative and encouraging to others, so what better way than to say "Thank You, I Love You, or Happy Birthday"
 to someone you care about? Being creative is also a great way to rid stress  from our lives. Take some time out and tell others just how much
 you really appreciate and care about them.

Reuse/Recycle past greeting cards.
Use old magazines for clipping pictures and words.
Consciousness is like a flower with many petals.

Buffalo Bill's Lookout Mountain - Golden, Colorado

The way you feel is caused by the thoughts you are thinking.
Keep checking on how you are feeling throughout the day. 
Check the feeling in your body and make sure your body is relaxed.
 If you detect tension, then take a moment to focus on 
letting go and relax your entire body. 
A feeling of peace in your body and mind is your aim, 
because that frequency of harmony
 will put you in alignment with the Universe.
For in seeking joy, you not only find perfect alignment 
with your Inner Being and with who you really are, 
but you also find vibrational alignment with all the things you desire.
Your emotions are your physical indication
 of your relationship with your Inner Being.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light.

Happy is he who dares courageously to defend what he loves.
"Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not the muscles."

Do not underestimate your worth by comparing yourself to others.

"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere."

-Albert Einstein
Write down all your goals and desires on paper.
Write in the present tense. 
Imagine what it would be like to have it now, and be thankful.
Take the time to imagine life how you desire it. 
Visualize as clearly as possible the things you want.
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."

-Albert Einstein

Set aside ten minutes a day to focus specifically on your positive thoughts 
and see what kind of a difference it makes in your life.
The key with mindfulness is that it is about developing your inner awareness,
rather than allowing your thoughts to take over.
You really can make a difference, and make the world a better place
 in whatever way is right for you.
What is it that your life lacks that would give it greater meaning?

"I Cross My Heart" - George Strait

Our love is unconditional, we knew it from the start.
I see it in your eyes, you can feel it from my heart.
From here on after let's stay the way we are right now,
And share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will allow.

I cross my heart and promise to
Give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true.
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine.

You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete,
And as long as there's a breath in me, I'll make yours just as sweet.
As we look into the future, it's as far as we can see,
So let's make each tomorrow be the best that it can be.

And if along the way we find a day it starts to storm,
You've got the promise of my love to keep you warm.
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine,
A love as true as mine.

"Take the first step in faith. 
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
 just take the first step."

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Doubt is the number one killer of motivation.
Playing it safe is the one of the riskiest decisions we can make.
Turning away from the world and toward your own happiness 
is the path to authenticity.
"The only disability in life, is a bad attitude."

-Scott Hamilton
"The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion of their commitment of excellence, 
regardless of their chosen field of endeavor."

-Vince Lombardi
When it comes to being happy, the journey is the destination.

Zac Brown Band - No Hurry

Zac Brown Band 

"No Hurry"

You know my old car needs washing

And the front yard needs a trim

And the telephone keeps ringing

And the bossman knows I know its him

And the bills ain't gonna pay themselves

No matter anyway

Cause I ain't in no hurry today

There's nothing wrong with an old cane fishing pole

And the smell of early spring

Sit down in a fold-up easy chair

On a quiet shady river bank

Let the world go on without me

Wouldn't have it any other way

Cause I ain't in no hurry today

Ain't in no hurry

I'd Be a fool now to worry

About all those things I can't change

And the time that I borrow

Can wait till tomorrow

Cause I ain't in no hurry today

When I must return

To the cold cold ground

Have 'em take their time

When they lay this sinner down

Heaven knows that I ain't perfect

I've raised a little cain

And I plan to raise a whole lot more

Before I hear those angels sing

(Gonna get right with the lord)

But there'll be hell to pay

But I ain't in no hurry

Ain't in no hurry

Be a fool now to worry

About all those things I can't change

And the time that I borrow

Can wait till tomorrow

Cause I ain't in no hurry

Ain't in no hurry

Ain't in no hurry today

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the thing he has not, 
but rejoices for those he has."

True gratitude is a natural response to the miracle of life as we experience it moment to moment, a sense of abundance from the heart that is independent of our desires for the future.
Gratitude helps us track success, to notice what is right in our lives.
"Gratitude, like love needs to be active."

-Christopher Reeve
Life is all about appreciation.

Emotions are the perfect reflection of your current point of attraction.
When finding joy, 
you are finding vibrational alignment 
                                                   with the resources of the universe.
It is the absence of negative emotion that is freedom, which is true joy.
Don't allow yourself to be controlled by negative emotions.
Whenever you are feeling negative emotion, it is always telling you that whatever you are thinking about is very important, but more importantly that you are thinking about the opposite of what you desire.
Negative emotion means that you are going in the wrong direction.
Every emotion that you feel is about your alignment or misalignment 
with the Energy of your Source.
Feelings are a feedback mechanism to whether or not we are on track with our thoughts.
It is impossible for you to feel bad and attract good.
Your emotions are an immediate signal as to how you are feeling and thinking.

Stop Complaining

Change your thoughts, change your world.
Only the contradiction in your own thoughts and vibration
can keep you from the things you desire.
Everything you think about you want. Everything to talk about you want. The Law of Attraction does not differentiate. Its all about the energies, frequencies, and emotion that attracts similar circumstances in our lives.
Every subject is one of two subjects: wanted or not wanted.
But the Law of Attraction does not differentiate.
What you are thinking about you are attracting, good or bad.
Do not be limited by your current state of where you are.
The potential for opportunity is found in everything.

Elba Equestrian Trails, Michigan, United States

Action is action whether or not you perceive it, and probable events are events, as are wishes and desires. The human system responds as fully to these as it does physical events.
You have the ability to direct your own thoughts. You have the option to see things how they are, or imagining them as you want them to be - and whatever option you choose whether you are imagining or observing is equally powerful.
Whatever you are thinking about is like planning a future event. When you are appreciating you are planning. When you are worrying you are planning. Worrying is using your imagination to create something you do not want. Imagine only what you do want.

Failure in people is caused more by a lack of determination than lack of talent.
When you encounter doubt, disagreements, or impediments, don't let discouragement lead you astray. Focus on your purpose and head toward your goal.
Patience is necessary if you want to achieve anything.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

The Devil's Backbone, Loveland, Colorado

Gratitude is both an attitude and a practice.
Every time you appreciate something, every time you praise something, every time you feel good about something, you are telling the Universe, "More of this please."
If you are criticizing, you are not being grateful.
If you are blaming, you are not being grateful.
If you are complaining, you are not being grateful.
If you are feeling tension, rushing, or in a bad mood, you are not being grateful.
The achievement of any desire must be considered a success.
Look around and appreciate the details.
Always be grateful for what you do have. Things could always be worse.
Find a place to clear your mind and heart and appreciate life.

Sunday, March 23, 2014

If you have been there in the mind you will go there in the body.
If you have the ability to imagine it, this Universe has the ability and the resources to deliver it fully unto you, with everything imaginable at your disposal.
Your vision will become your life.

Atom of Love

"The chemist who can extract from his heart's elements,
 compassion, respect, longing, patience, regret, surprise, and forgiveness
and compound them into one can create that atom which is called love."
