the priceless journey home to the heart… (part 23)

Sunday, August 15th, 2010


I brought this powerful love with me

It started pure and fair,

I felt in the world each day

It was beyond compare!

And as I grew, I closed it in

To keep it from all harm,

My mind would judge how much to share

My love became disarmed.

I gave it out so sparingly

Intended to protect,

The memory of its power

Receded with neglect

And when I was much older

My heart I gave away,

I placed it in the loving care

Of one who could not stay.

It took me years to understand

My love is mine alone.

It starts with me and sets me free

It’s my eternal home.

We make the search for love here

An epic soulful quest

But as we grow, we each soon know

The secret’s in our chest.

Our heart was never seeking

Our mind took us outside

The heart just waits for us to hear

It’s whispers to confide.

“Where have you been, my long lost friend?

You’ve been away so long!”

“The love you seek is for yourself

For years you had it wrong!”

“Why do you search outside yourself?

This passion and this thirst.

You cannot give what you don’t have

You must know YOUR LOVE first!”

“Your love must fail…. to show you

The work that you must do.

The ones you love are teachers

You called them each to you!”

“They promised they would teach you

The love you must not hide,

True love will last, the grade to pass

Is buried deep inside!”

“The chemistry of which you seek

You cannot engineer.

It is commitment to yourSELF

To hold yourSELF so dear!”

“Your search will end my sweet dear friend

When you know you ARE LOVE.

Please hold me gently every day.

Its you I’m thinking of!”

Your journey was a short one

The lessons with it grand,

From Head to Heart, no more apart

You’re unified young man!”

And then I said a blessing

My hands both pressed to heart

I’m home again, I AM my friend

We never more shall part!

Miracles by Design: Removing Limiting Thoughts

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

In June of 1958 at the age of 3, I went “fishing” with my parents. They never had time together as they both worked two jobs to make ends meet.

It was one of the best days of my life! Time alone on a private pond with my parents who I rarely saw.

While fishing that morning, apparently my throwing rocks in the water somehow disturbed the fishes appetite, so my Dad decided to move “up stream” of me!

He left my Mom and me on the steep dam portion of the pond while he went to the other side for his vacation away from me!

While Mom continued to fish and talk to me, I played around her….and then in one instant, my whole life changed.

I tripped while playing and fell into 20 feet of water fully clothed. My Mom panicked because she could not swim and my Dad was just in earshot.

My Dad told Mom to jump in knowing that he would get to her.

In what seemed like a lifetime, I remained under water while I fearfully awaited my fate.
Mom did get me and Dad did get Mom that day, but they had to pump water from my lungs to revive me.

My reason for telling this story is that in what my have been less than 2 minutes of time, I formed 10 limiting thoughts in those brief minutes that I have been untangling for most of my adult life. Here they are:

1. If the woman who gave me life will not save me in my time of need, how will I ever trust any woman in my life?

2. When I play, I die…so it is only safe for me to avoid playing and work hard every day to stay alive.

3. I MUST CONTROL everything in my life, or I die!

4. Women are weak and must rely on men to do take care of things

5. I was unworthy of SAVING!

6. My FATHER does not hear my prayers or calls for help when I need him most

7. My FATHER has deserted me and does not care about me (Heavenly Father- Faith Issue)

8. When I breathe in too deeply, I die. (Breathe shallow and don’t take in Holy Breath)

9. I get in the way of my parents happiness

10. I cause bad things to happen when my Mom and Dad are together (I am better off alone)

Can you see how these thoughts of an innocent 3-year-old could child could create subconscious challenges to relationships with women, enjoying life, developing faith, letting go and relaxing (versus controlling), confusion about gender strength, work-a-holism, being anxious when I spend time alone with my parents, etc?

It took me 45 years to identify the core of these issues for myself. These subliminal and terrifying thoughts got all “clustered up” and neurologically wired inside me that day.

Although I continued to search for loving, trusting relationships in my life, these thoughts told me I could not TRUST MYSELF or my partner to ever love me enough to count on when things got bad.


In 2007, I had the honor of doing some deep and powerful work with a loving and brilliant Master Teacher named Jan Adams of Sylva, NC.

Jan worked diligently with me over a period of time to help me identify each of these faulty thoughts. She was able to isolate them, and then showed me how to forgive, replace and heal them.

Through 20 years of study, practice and working to heal her own emotional wounds, Jan created a simple technology designed to allow individuals to look inside themselves to find their own answers to their blocks.

The dynamic system created by Jan is called, “The Philosopher’s Stone

Jan has graciously agreed to be my very first guest on my BlogTalkRadio show this coming Wednesday, August 11 from 7 pm until 8:30 pm (EST).

It will be a show that allows us to journey deep inside our subconscious mind to learn how specific moments of extreme discomfort get wired into simple events and memories to create issues for us in our lives.

Please invite your friends to listen to this fascinating discussion with one of the great healers of the heart and mind, Jan Adams!


the priceless journey home to the heart (part #21 – miracles)

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010


We are living in dynamic times of change. We are seeing our thoughts made manifest more rapidly now than ever in the history of man. The question is, what old thoughts are continuing to hold us in “lack, unworthiness and distrust”?

How do we make this SHIFT in thinking to discover our True Purpose here and claim the abundant life we know to be ours? How do we connect to Joy for more than fleeting moments? How did we get so far away from our center? How do we reclaim our balance? How do Miracles Occur? These are just a few of the questions we will explore and share insights into to help you “cross the desert, part the waters and find your promised land.”

What is a miracle and how can we allow it back into our life?

A Miracle is merely a shift in perception from fear to love. And that shift will change your entire life. It is the letting go of your known perceptions and beliefs. It is opening yourself up to a reality that you were not ready to see before.

It is a change in thought and beliefs that hold you in SAMENESS.

I am inspired by the courage of anyone who allows the shattering of their old belief system to enable themselves to walk into new paradigms which appear to be miracles.

What they experience is not miracles but just all of the previously ignored concepts, visions and ideas that were not invited into their awareness at the time. It was always sitting there waiting for you to open up to a new perception and create a new reality.

Spiritual transformation begins with shifting your physical perceptions of what’s real. If you think what you see and hear is all that’s real, you’ll be dictated by the limits of your senses.

Extend your perception beyond what your senses register…to what your heart knows to be true. Be willing to have your eyes opened to the love in any situation, even when with your physical eyes you cannot see it.

That is the miracle beginning. Is there a recipe for a Miracle? It will be executed differently by everyone, but at its core it has to do with several factors. Identifying stuck beliefs that can be released that no longer serve you. Identify your heart’s desire and holding it there lovingly with an all-knowing that it is not only possible, but now probable. It is giving gratitude for your many gifts. It is total surrender to the Universe with a patient application of faith and a belief bigger than any problem your mind can prevent you from realizing…Don’t ask HOW or WHEN. Stay in a state of constant appreciation. Request helpful and consistent doses of GRACE…


The Who – Is you and your Divine Creator working in co-creative partnership
The What – Is the idea carried in your state of constant gratitude, joy and appreciation.
The When, Where and How – Is the domain of the Universe to deliver your desires at its own perfect timing!
The Why – Is the beacon of your Heart and your Soul’s requested journey to “offer you life and to have life abundantly.”

The Miracle appears when you least expect it and need it most to confirm your FAITH. It all comes together in perfect timing!



Law of Supply – “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”

Desire without expectation is idle wishing or dreaming. You simply waste much valuable mental energy in doing this. Desire will put you in touch with the inner world of causes and connect you by invisible means with the substance of the thing desired; then, continuous expectation is necessary to bring it into a reality in your life. Much like the pull of gravitation in the physical realm, “expectation” is a drawing force of the mind which acts in the invisible realm.


“To desire is to expect, to expect is to achieve.”

Now is the time to look at your life one year from now seeing each of your highest choices. Use your Divine Imagination to see yourself already in the position of having, doing and being exactly what you knew you came here to enjoy knowing that failure and struggle do not exist. It is no use to desire a thing unless you expect to get it, either in part or in full.


Look at all of the areas of your life where you are not living up to your highest expectation and desires. Remember, anything less than your highest choice will contain elements of self sabotage.

Begin by looking back over your lifetime.
What are the things you will have wanted to accomplish or experience?
What is YOUR definition of a GREAT life?
What is it you want to be? do? have?
What kind of life do you dream about having?
What kind of life would give you ‘goose bumps’ whenever you think about it?

Write down with great clarity and specificity what you intend and expect to see made tangible in your life. THINK IT, SPEAK IT, COMMIT TO IT, ENVISION IT, BE IT, HAVE IT, ENJOY IT!

Write and create your new vision for yourself based on where you’ll be in one year.


What if you could picture yourself in a new future not based on your old beliefs that would continue to have you create a life that repeats your old patterns of unworthiness, lack, doubt and no trust.

What if you could step out into a future that fulfills your highest calling and allows you to uncover your soul-inspired map which will open the door to new thoughts, actions and choices? You will see what is important and what lights up your heart. You will find the key to that which will compel you to make choices based on who you can be… rather than who you know yourself to be currently, because today you are merely the by-product of all of your accumulated thoughts to date!


Focus sharpens the intent and directs the magnetizing effect on your desires. The mind is a magnet and attracts whatever corresponds to its ruling state. Whatever we image in mind, whatever we expect and think about, will tend to bring into our lives the things and conditions that are in harmony

The most important thing for you to do is to put your vision in front of you each day to keep it in both your conscious and unconscious awareness.
The secret to Manifesting are these keys:
1. Speak it from your heart knowing that it is not only possible, but already here! (I AM thankful for my…)
2. Speak it Consciously and Creatively (I appreciate having my …)
3. Speak it in the First Person, Present Tense, Personally (I AM now enjoying…)
4. Speak it with Specificity. Invoke all of your SENSES
– Feel it and touch it
– See it and be joyful
– Taste it and hear it
– Smell it

EXAMPLE: (I AM smiling as I now enjoy riding in my bright new metallic blue car with chrome wheels, I hear the windshield wipers beating to the rhythm of my ITunes music in my surround sound speaker system and smell the plush leather interior as I ride comfortably to my new job where my talents are appreciated and respected, etc)

5. Speak it with Aligned Feeling (I AM joyous that I now enthusiastically hold my…)

Use your senses to see yourself in the not to distant NOW moment being, having, and enjoying your new life.


“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.”

Every thought that we have is actually a prayer being called either consciously or subconsciously into matter. Placing ourselves in a state of constant appreciation, joy and anticipation based on our faith allows us to elevate our vibrational frequency to make our thoughts “more attractive and magnetic”.

Because today will be the first day of the rest of your life, why not begin designing the life of joy that you REALLY want – right here, right now!

All Manifestation begins with IMAGINATION, VISUALIZATION and THOUGHT

Invoking the Higher Chakras (vision, will and grace) will allow you to activate your Dreams and initiate your Imagination.

Invoking the Lower Chakras (need, power, and creativity) allows you to activate your strongest Desires and initiate your Truthful Passion in this lifetime.

Understand that the union point of our DREAMS and DESIRES is the fourth (or Middle Chakra) where our Heart invites our EMOTIONS and our THOUGHTS to unite.

The union of these powerful visions create FEELINGS.

The Heart gives wings to your PASSIONS and DESIRES and DREAMS through FEELING and sends an invisible signal out into the UNIVERSE asking that the PASSIONATE, HEART-FELT DESIRE be matched….hence, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” This is where the Law of Attraction takes over!


THOUGHT (dreams) + EMOTION (desires) + ENVISIONING and SPEAKING creates PASSION (heartfelt feeling)

Repetition and Emoting the feeling of already having your dream realized + Surrender to the Universe = MANIFESTATION


I’m encouraging you to lay the foundation for your new life. As you move through these exercises, let your passions be your guide! Look at what would be fulfilling to you; what would give you pleasure in life.

In a binder of ruled paper, write each goal, desire, or accomplishment you wish to see (what you choose to be, do or have) in your lifetime.  Write each intent on a separate page. Write as quickly as the ideas come to you without analyzing, judging or censoring what’s coming to you. Fill up as many pages as possible. Include desires that may seem unattainable, silly, outrageous or impossible. The key here is NO CENSORING! You want to get outside your ‘box’ and expand your thinking.

Begin a journal of your daily accomplishments and each night before going to sleep, give thanks for the miracles that appeared in your life that day by writing down 5 things you are thankful for (mix this up each night with new things for which your are grateful).

Then shift your focus on those that are still arriving based on your intended vision!


The Law of Receiving says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

It is important that we remember that there is a cause and effect relationship between giving and receiving! After we give, that is not all we must do. Our next step is to prepare to receive the response or results of our giving and to receive, as the Law states, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. This is the most interesting part, because our preparation shows our active faith. Instead of rocking and waiting, we are preparing and working. This, in turn, enlarges our view. It stimulates our interest; it disperses our doubt and fear, and energizes our power of reception.


My unshakable belief that I can HAVE, DO AND BE anything my heart desires is the kind of faith that summons amazing miracles. Hope and faith are important, but the essential key to achieving my dreams is this:

BELIEVING it is possible,
BELIEVING it is possible for me,
BELIEVING I deserve it, and
BELIEVING it will happen!


Heavenly Father, Divine Mother, Great and Giving Universal Creator,

All that I ask, and all I claim, is all in Your Honor, and all in Your Name.
Thank You for Your perfect guidance, your unconditional love, and your ongoing, instant support.

It is with profound gratitude for my many blessings that I mistakenly take for granted that I now humbly ask to experience Your Divine Grace.

I greatly anticipate your miraculous intervention and healing in ALL aspects of my being now and I focus my attention on the areas that I name before you now.

I envision myself as ALREADY whole, perfect, complete and satisfied, and I see every cell in my body as filled with your Divine Light, your Radiance and Dynamic Vitality.

Starting today, I choose to find magical and miraculous ways to consciously attract and create the reality I prefer. By rewording my script and rewriting “The Story of My Life,” I can creatively redesign my destiny.

Because I am a Divine Expression of You, I firmly believe that, with Your wise guidance, I can resolve any problem, rectify any situation, and remedy any undesirable state of being that has previously held me in a stuck position.….        and so it is!
