Question: How do you truly receive abundance? Is there a ‘magical’ formula? What about the ‘paradigm’ of constantly thinking about abundance which can push it away? Confused!

Answer: Become clear about what you truly want, let go, and allow abundance (in all forms) to come into your life.

Many people have discovered the law of attraction. They’ve watched The Secret and believe what they ‘think’ about will come true. That’s part of the formula. You must ‘feel’ and believe you’ll receive your desires. However, your soul may have a totally different path to follow from what you desire. It’s a conundrum and paradigm!

7 Steps to Abundance

1. You’re already producing results. However, they may not be the results you want. Take a moment to look at what is in your life. Where are you? Past? Present? Future? Write everything down that’s happening in your life. For example, write down how much money you earn per month, how much you spend on bills each month, how much you spend on food, etc. Remember, you can’t change what you don’t acknowledge.

2. How do you speak? Do you speak words of favor or defeat? Do you generalize? For example, do you say, “I have to work hard for money.” Who said this to you? How old were you? Ask yourself, “How true is this now?” Generalizations won’t attract abundance to you — they’ll keep it from you.  Write down all of your generalizations and ask, “Are these true?” The answer will surprise you.

Tip: Say an affirmation such as “Prosperity flows easily to me.” You must believe it!

3. Define your outcome. What exactly do you want? Do you even know? Remember, where attention goes, energy flows. Ask the following the questions:

  • What do I want?
  • Why do I want this and that?
  • How will this change my life?
  • How will this affect others in my life?
  • Are you really ready for this to occur?

Sometimes you want to want things; you may not be ready for your desires. You’re not aware of the reality of it. For example, most lottery winners weren’t prepared emotionally and mentally for their fortune. They couldn’t handle the attention or relatives and friends who knocked on their door for assistance. The money is usually gone within one year.

4. Be precise in your thoughts — align your thoughts and language.

5. Ask for support from people who are successful in an area you’d like to be successful in. For example, if you’d like a relationship, speak to someone who has a successful relationship. Don’t ask someone who’s been divorced five times; although, you could probably learn what ‘not to do’ in a relationship. You can learn about self-sabotaging behaviors and patterns.

Tip: Whatever it is you desire, seek out those who are successful. Also, when someone helps you, give something in return as a way to say “thank you.”

6. Do not give up if you truly feel deeply (you have an inner knowing) you’re on the right path with your desires. You probably haven’t tried everything to reach your desires. Be clear about you want; however, make sure it’s in alignment with your soul. Your desire could be at odds with your ‘soul’s’ desires. Become quiet and still to find out.

7. After you’ve become clear about your desires, let it go. Give it over to God, Source Energy, Universal Intelligence, etc. Always say, “This or something better.” Please don’t obsess about it. That which is yours can’t and won’t be taken away from you.

Woman Miraculously Drops 100 lbs. in Five Days … Feels and Looks Lighter

8. Jumping for Joy

Fellow Students of Life,

How can you drop 100 lbs. in five days? You can look at the people in your life and examine if it’s time to say ‘goodbye’ to them. This may be difficult if the people are family members or friends you’ve known for 10 or more years; they could be weighing you and your life down. Or, they could have been teachers for you. If you learned your life lessons, it’s time to move on.

Think about the following scenarios for a moment. Do the people in your life always ask you for help but don’t reciprocate when you ask for help? Do they expect you to automatically do something for them as if you ‘owe’ them? How are you treated when you say “No, I can’t help today?” Do you get the cold shoulder? What about when you express your thoughts and feelings? How do others react when you voice your opinions? I think you get the idea. Saying goodbye to people you’ve known for a very long time can be scary and liberating at the same time. Think about it this way; when you release people, situations, and material possessions from your life, you make room for new people, situations, and material items to come into your life. Remember, everything in life has a natural cycle for birth and completion.

There are many people right now who could stand to lose 100 lbs. or more in their life. For example, it may be time to say goodbye to a ‘rocky’ marriage. You can try counseling, may be you did; but if you intuitively know it’s time to end it, have the courage to do so. Don’t worry about what family and friends will say. They won’t and can’t understand if they’re not willing to see the situation through your eyes. And, most of the time the ones closest to us are filled with fear and can’t see anyway.

Tip: If you’re surrounded by energy vampires, it’s time to take your power back. Don’t get caught up in unnecessary drama because it could adversely affect your mind, body, and soul. Have compassion and empathy, but don’t get sucked in by work or family drama.

Let’s face it; most adults would benefit from taking more responsibility for their lives. Blaming the economy, mom and dad, a horrible childhood, bosses, co-workers, in-laws, spouse, life partner, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc. doesn’t cut it anymore. All of us have FREE WILL to make choices. We have FREE WILL to live our lives according to the way we see fit, not according to how others think we should live.

You can feel lighter and calmer by releasing those in your life who no longer resonate with you. Dr. Wayne Dyer (listen to his radio show on HayHouse Radio) has said many times, “People come in and out of our lives. Some will enter our lives in Act III and leave in Act V; maybe they’ll leave in Act VII, scene three. Others will have permanent roles in our lives. Lovingly let people go; forgive them.” It’s something to think about.


Who do you need to say ‘goodbye’ to either permanently or for a while? Share.

How to Overcome Low Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt

Question: I had a horrible dream, more like a nightmare, where I saw billowing smoke in the air. I ran up a hill along with other people and saw an airplane in the air. It was cracked in half and people were falling out; I could hear their blood curdling screams along with the screams of those still in their seats. I could even see what the people looked like and what they were wearing. It was frightening to say the least. What does this mean? Why would I dream something horrible like this? Is this a premonition?

Answer: Breath and relax. According to Dream Moods Dictionary.com your dream symbolizes the possibility of setting too high or unrealistic goals for yourself and seeing them crash down. Another interpretation is your self-confidence is low and you have self-doubt about reaching your goals. Your self-defeating mindset is causing your dreams or goals to crash; you experience loss of power. You don’t believe in your abilities to reach your goals.

How to Overcome Low Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt

1. Trust that you have the answers inside of you. Nine times out of ten, you know what to do. However, you may not take action because you fear you’ll make a mistake. The good news is if you make a decision and it doesn’t work out, you can make another decision. It’s not a waste of time and effort because you probably learned valuable lessons. Accept those lessons and move forward.

Remember … No one is perfect!

2. Approve of you. The only approval you need is from you. If you constantly seek approval from others, you’re not self-confident. You are free to be who you are. What matters the most is YOU love and approve of you. Remember, “What others think of you is none of your business.” Some people may or may not be in your tribe or ‘get’ you — it’s alright.

3. Affirm you are talented. If you don’t believe in your abilities, who will? Know and affirm you have what it takes to succeed in whatever it is you do. Recall times when you did well and give yourself a ‘pat’ on the back. Also, make a list of activities you enjoy and do more of them.

4. Stop believing and thinking self-defeating ideas and thoughts. Parents, grandparents, teachers, etc. probably contributed to your belief system. They meant well but could have passed on self-defeating and limiting thoughts. The good news is you’re an adult and can shift your beliefs. You don’t have to be bound to thoughts such as, I must work hard to earn a living; You don’t get ahead without hard work; No one in our family ever got ahead with talent alone; and other limiting beliefs. Ask yourself, “Are these true? Is it true I have no talent?” You’ll be surprised by your answers.

Cultivate new beliefs. After all, your parents aren’t responsible for you anymore. You are responsible for you. Saying affirmations could work; however, they only work if you believe in them. Don’t say affirmations if you don’t feel positive about them.

5. Take ‘inspired’ action. Taking action for actions sake won’t work. Inspired action means you’re really enthusiastic about something. Whether you’re applying for a job or filling out a volunteer application, make sure you’re inspired to do so.

There isn’t a ‘perfect’ time to do something — this is an illusion. You may encounter obstacles and roadblocks as you begin to take ‘inspired’ action. Go around them and move forward; you’ll gain more skills and become more confident.

6. Get educated. Maybe your current skills need updating. Perhaps, it’s time to learn new skills which you can apply to a new career. It’s never too late for education. Remember: if you stop learning, you stop living, and you eventually die.

7. Laugh at yourself. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Laugh at your mistakes and correct them. What’s the worst that could happen? Making mistakes happens to the best of us. Even Einstein didn’t get it right the first time. You learn by ‘trial and error’ and correcting what doesn’t work.

Shake off low self-confidence and self-doubt by recognizing your abilities. Please remember, most people fail at one time or another in their lives. The word ‘fail’ isn’t a bad 4-letter word. In fact, many famous authors had their manuscripts rejected countless times. Some of them self-published before any major editor noticed them. Give yourself credit for trying and don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re doing the best you can and that’s all that matters.

Would You Date Yourself?

I was listening to Robert Ohotto‘s latest Soul Connexions podcast about creating a vision board. He spoke about how people use vision boards to create a love relationship. They put pictures of men or women they’re attracted to on the vision board and wait for the universe to deliver them to the doorstep. Some put affirmations on the vision board and feel this all that’s needed to attract a partner. Unfortunately, there’s more to it than affirming and wishing. If you’re not in a place to ‘accept’ an intimate relationship, you won’t attract one.

Robert suggests writing down what you want in a lover such as eye and hair color, build, morals and values, career path, spiritual or not, same religious background, millionaire, etc. Write everything down you’re looking for in a partner. Review what you wrote and ask the following questions:

  • Is this what I want in a partner?
  • Is this what I was taught to want in a partner?
  • Is this what my parents or religion dictate?
  • What does my heart want?
  • What am I really looking for?
  • How can I have a soul connection with myself?
  • How can I have a soul connection with another person if I don’t love me?
  • How much of what I want in an intimate relationship has been influenced by others?

You may be surprised that you don’t want what you thought you want. You may find that you’ve been influenced to want a certain type partner. This may catch you off guard. Now, you need figure out what you really do want. Look at your parent’s relationship? How would you rate it? What did you learn from it? What about your grandparent’s relationships? What about celebrity relationships? Get down and dirty and really think about what you want in a life partner.

“You cannot give someone else an intimacy that you first do not have yourself, nor can they offer you an intimacy they don’t have with themselves.” Robert Ohotto

You may not really want to date and are being swayed by parents or society that tells you that you must date, get married, and have kids. If you’re still wounded from your childhood, you may not attract a ‘healthy’ soul connection. In fact, you may not want to date you! Peeling back the layers will help you get to the ‘core’ of you who are so you’ll be able to attract the ‘right’ partner for you.

Would you date you? Think about it. Would you want to be in an intimate relationship with you? Do you enjoy your own company? Do you like to be around you? The answer may surprise you. Don’t fret about it. You can shift your mind, body, and soul by getting real. Begin to peel back the layers of who you are and heal the parts of you that require healing. Forgive yourself and others and you’ll be set free. That loving relationship you desire will now be able to come into your life.

How to Stand in Your Power with Family

Cover of "Angels and Spirit Guides"

Cover of Angels and Spirit Guides

I’m the type of person that likes to live by the motto “Live and let live.” I don’t bother anyone and respect that people have their lives to live. What they do has absolutely nothing to with me or my happiness. For example, if my sister said to me, “I’m moving to Charleston, SC. Bye!” My response would be, “Fantastic! Good luck to you! Let me know when you’re settled, I’d love to visit.” I wouldn’t go on and on how she was leaving me, her kids (actually it would be my 17-year-old niece who’s heading to college in the fall), or our mother. My sister turns 45 on September 30 and can do what she wants. My happiness doesn’t depend on her living 15 minutes away for me. I also couldn’t force her to live in the Southwest which is where I want to move back to. Why is it that certain family members, who aren’t healthy for you, insist on pushing their way back into your life? How do you stand in your power and gently say, “No, thank you?”

How to stand in your power with family

1. Be honest. Sometimes you need to tell people what you think of them. Stay calm and don’t raise your voice.

2. Say “No” and mean it. If you disappoint or ‘tick-off’ people, oh well! If you say “Yes,” when you want to say “No,” you’ll be miserable and won’t come from a place of authenticity or love.

3. Learn to be disliked. This is a tough one for most people, especially women. I realized this is an issue for me. I’d rather be happy than hang out with people whom I don’t want to hang out with. I’d rather be happy and do my own thing than be sucked into drama.

4. Call upon your angels, spirit guides, and ascended masters. I’ve been doing this, but I do question if it works. I still call upon Archangel Michael, God, Quan Yin, and others to help guide me and release people and situations from my life that are toxic to me.

5. Step out in nature. Being in nature can refresh you. Go to the park or sit outside. Allow your mind to wander, listen to the birds sing, or watch the clouds in the sky. Walk in the grass or hug a tree. Give all your stress to Mother Earth and allow it to be transmuted into love.

6. Love you! No matter what, love and accept yourself. Remember, you are responsible for you and no one else.

I have great respect for people who own who they are. They don’t give a flying leap about what others think. They live their lives the way they want to without a care in the world. They’re very powerful and have no guilt about telling people what they think of them. I strive to be like this. I feel as if certain people are siphoning my light and energy from me; it’s really starting to irritate me.

I’ve studied metaphysical and spiritual topics now for four years and according to all of the authors I’ve read, all of us have angels and spirit guides who supposed to help us. I’m constantly giving people and situations to God and the angels so they can deal with it. Why isn’t it working? I have no desire to be around people who drain me. To quote Abraham-Hicks, “One minute you’re in the vortex and the next minute you’re out. What happened?”

I’ve learned that I must stand in my power and be who I am. If I don’t accept who I am, I won’t be happy. And when I’m not happy, no one will be happy. It’s like that saying, “Happy wife, happy life!” Seriously though, no one has the right to infringe upon your space and serenity. I like what Oprah said on her farewell show, “Don’t wait for someone to save you, save yourself. Take responsibility for your own life.” I wish certain family members of mine would hear this.
