Life's a Beach

On Yom Kippur, though I'm not Jewish, I decided to take the day and meditate. Since Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement, I decided to meditate on the areas in my life that needed changing. The kids were off from school, so we got up early, put on our swimming gear and were out the door...........Ten hours later, after hanging out with my family, I was determined to still make it to the beach. The sun had gone down and the heat had abated some but I was looking forward to some more relaxation. The beach for me is my sanctuary. The crystal clear, aqua-tinged water, the blue sky and white puffy clouds put me in heaven. The sound of the wind and crashing waves just soothes me to the core. I just couldn't wait. We parked and walked to the sand, spread out the blanket and just sat. The scenery was just majestic. I saw three different thunderstorms in the distance, on the horizon, creating the most beautiful light show. My very own fireworks display. I relished the beauty that surrounded me while the boys buried each other in the sand. Listening to their giggles, while my feet cuddled up to the warm, soft sand I got really quiet inside. Then it was almost like God was showing me that the beauty in front of me is just a reflection of what is inside my heart- it is the Secret to Life! Like I had produced it by just thinking it. My eager anticipation for it the whole day had created the perfect scenery beforehand, equipped with all the perfect elements to provide us a most magical experience. It was such a profound experience that it seemed like His words were in pictures. And I could see all the beauty but from a mirror. I got it! He was telling me that in the same way that I have the power to create a majestic experience I can create one not so majestic. That if I look around, everything in my life once existed in my heart before I could see it with my eyes. Armed with the Secret to Life, I could undo those things in my life that didn't belong there. I could change my whole life! I could change the mirror at will. It was crystal clear to me that day that each one of my thoughts were the strokes on the canvas of my life. And all I'd have to do is intentionally CHOOSE...... one... a Masterpiece. That is where the Adventure begins.....When will your adventure begin?

Thank You Father for always taking the time to talk to my heart and enlighten me with your Love. The greatest adventure of my life is being just like You. I AM LOVE

I Love You

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Maya Angelou

What else can be said? Maya captured the magical essence that The Master Engineer designed in a Woman. Whenever You look at yourself in the mirror, say, "I AM A PHENOMENAL WOMAN!" and with this affirmation, God and his hosts will lay down every pathway to assure this proclamation becomes the Truth in your life. Your husband will worship the ground You walk on and thank You for the priviledge of loving him. Your children will sing your praises and everyone around You will marvel at the lingering residue of You long after you are not in their presence. You are a masterpiece worthy to be praised and honored. Feel it and Live it today with every breath and be thankful to to God for the Christ within!

The Law of Attraction Defined

The Law of Attraction Defined
I always get asked," Why doesn't the Law of Attraction work for me?” Well, first let's get a good understanding of the Law of Attraction. This is the way I've come to understand it: The Law of Attraction is an indiscriminate law- just like gravity- that produces or brings to life that which we hold in our subconscious. It is a Universal Law that is always working; whether you are sleeping, eating, showering, fighting, loving, working, planting a garden or stuck in traffic. It doesn't matter. IT ALWAYS WORKS.

The Human Problem #1
The problem is that after seeing The Secret, most people disregarded the message thinking it doesn't work for them. What they don't understand is that the Law is working perfectly and is giving them exactly what they are focusing on. They look around at their life and see the same conditions and they get frustrated with the Law of Attraction. But you have to remember, the Law only gives you what you focus on. It doesn't care whether you like it or don’t want it. For example, if you dread going to work everyday and then you probably hate getting up in the morning. You don't look forward to the drive there and you certainly don't look forward to getting paid. I bet you even feel underpaid, overworked and bored with your job. What you probably don't know is that you actually created those circumstances. You are at fault. Why? Because the more you focus on disliking your job, the more the Universe will line up experiences that will justify your feelings of dislike. The more you hate going to work, the more experiences YOU will create with your subconscious mind that will cause you to hate your work even more. It's a never-ending cycle and you are the culprit. Now if you don't agree with me, it's fine. The Law is still working either for you or against you, so why don't we turn this thing around so we can benefit from it, right?

Deniability vs. Accountability
First things first. The first step to working with the Law of Attraction and changing your life is to take responsibility for where you are right now. After reading this article you can't blame anyone else but YOU for any conditions in your life you feel are out of control. You see by our very nature, we were created to be fruitful and multiply, to have dominion over this precious gift called Earth. We were created in the image of God with all of His creative characteristics. Every time we speak, we are creating our world and our experiences because our words are spoken thoughts which cause us to act. Those acts become habits or what I like to call our mental defaults and they in turn lead us to our destiny. So once we become aware that we are creative beings with the power to create our future, everything begins to change. Our thoughts, our words and therefore our actions begin to change.

The Human Problem #2
Most people, even after understanding that they have complete control over their lives still feel stuck in their current problems and have trouble changing. You may understand The Secret and the Law of Attraction but somehow you still have your nose pressed hard against the glass on the outside looking in at what could be your best life-someday. The visualizations are great, and the affirmations make you feel good but you want results-now. How do I make the jump from where I am now to where I want to be? I've found that a person's self-worth is the Master Key to the Law of Attraction. How do you see yourself? Do you think you are capable of finding happiness in a relationship? Do you think you are worthy of being loved? Do you feel you deserve to live a wealthy life full of luxury and opulence? Well, the answer is YES! We were created to live an adventurous, fun-filled life, overflowing with love and joy. We were designed to live a fulfilling life and then help to create it for others. Not appreciating yourself is the number one reason most people won't fulfill their heart's desires. They just can't see themselves attaining it. They think it’s for someone else.

Take the Self-Worth Test
How can you tell your low self-esteem is what's keeping you from mastering the Law of Attraction? Truthfully answer the questions below:
If you are single, does your heart sink when you see a couple holding hands? Yes or No
If you are struggling with your bills, do you get a knot in your stomach when you think about payday? Yes or No
Do you feel bad when you look in the mirror or avoid looking in the mirror? Yes or No
Do you dread going home after a long day at work, to cook for the family and interact with your spouse? Yes or No
Do you worry about your bills when the offering plate comes around at church? Yes or No

If you said Yes to any of these questions, you my friend must work to change your understanding of who you really are. The reason you feel bad is because you are not expecting any of these circumstances to change so you don't look forward to them. You don't expect them to change because you don't believe you deserve the best that life has to offer. You are so precious in God's eyes! Did you know you were created to live Heaven on Earth? Every area of your life is supposed to be under your control: Spiritual, Financial, Relationships & Health. Once you recognize that this is the root of the problem you can begin to take the steps to restoring your self-worth and really see a change in your life. For more tools on changing your life, go to

How to Work with the Law of Attraction to Find a Job- Regardless of any Condition

Getting a job in this economy is as simple as following the steps to completing any task.
Regardless of the reason you are seeking work, rest-assured that obtaining a job, fast, is simple to achieve regardless of ANY condition-including economic. These steps are tried and true for I used them to become gainfully employed by working with the Law of Attraction. You would be surprised to find out that obtaining a job doesn’t have anything to do with your resume, experience or field but everything to do with your ability to believe in yourself. The greater your ability to see yourself employed, secure and full of joy the quicker your inner image will frame your world and its reality. I recommend you print out two copies of this article. Keep one beside your bed and the other travels with you, in your purse or wallet. Read the article in the morning, then at lunch and again at bedtime. Then get ready to see good things happen!

Manage Your Thoughts & Emotions
Make a decision to focus ALL of your thought and emotional energy on ALREADY being employed NOT finding a job. Do NOT focus on anything negative or contrary to what you want. This is very important. The faster you convince your subconscious mind that you are already employed, the faster the Universe will move everything and everyone to accommodate your request. So how do you do this? Feel good! Feel good as you see yourself getting up for work everyday and are convinced you are employed. Picture yourself receiving a handsome weekly paycheck. See yourself paying your bills on time and looking forward to your payday. Feel the feelings of job security and job satisfaction as you picture yourself busily going about your day productively completing tasks. Get excited! You have a job! Did you hear what I said?! You have a job! Feel it in every fiber of your being and your emotions will follow and soon manifest it.

Manage Your Mouth
Resist the urge to verbalize worry about where your next dollar is coming from but instead be thankful! Feel grateful for getting a job and say "I am so thankful that I am working and I love my job! I am so happy every morning as I get up and look forward to going to work. Thank God I found a job so quickly! I look forward to paying my bills on time and providing generously for my family. I am so thankful that I get along well with my team and management. I am so thankful that I am a huge asset to my team and I feel appreciated and valued. I love my job!”

Lights! Camera! ACTION!
Make something happen! If you want to find a job quickly your day must be filled with productivity. Before you go to bed each night picture your daily routine for the next day. Picture yourself preparing your clothes the night before, getting up the following morning and getting ready for work. Resist the urge to change your routine. If the kids took the bus to school before, don't start taking them now that you have more free time. Don't start spring cleaning or waste your time catching up on TV. Resist the urge to sleep-in. You must get up everyday, fully-dressed and ready to work. During the normal 8 hours of a work day you should polish up your resume, call business contacts for networking opportunities, do on-line training to increase your job skills and of course, remember to keep a guard over your thoughts and mouth. Keep feeling the joyous feelings of being employed!

Expect it!
Expect to be called for an interview and offered a job. Expect to be fully prepared to wow your employer. You are valued beyond explanation. You are a valued resource that a company is looking for right now. You deserve financial security and job soundness. It is your heritage and birthright as child of God. Did you know that your job is actually looking for you with the same intensity that you are looking for it. You'll know that you are on the right track because everything you do feels good and is fun. You are enjoying yourself and already beginning to feel peace in knowing you are employed. Believe it! Doesn't that just make you want to jump up and give somebody a High-Five!

To sum it up, your thoughts have to actually transition from worrying to rejoicing and from wondering to knowing. As you continue to focus all of your energy on BEING employed (NOT getting a job) you will feel good, secure and expectantly joyful. The Universe is the exceptional personal assistant. She will coordinate all of the people, places, timing and things to deliver you a job. Have faith and just focus on the end result only. Congratulations! Welcome to the World of the Employed! I knew you could do it!
