If I tell you NOT to think about think about a  purple tree–what do you think about??

YUP–a purple tree!

We cannot not think about what we do not want to think about without thinking about it! 


We have tended to be a society that focuses on what we do not want—I mean after all we think it is good to process it all and talk about where we at –and so so and so on etc…ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……

Oh and by the way—-we also like to share it with people, and there is never a shortage of people to commiserate with and support us in this place.

All of that only enhances the focus on what we do not want.

None of it —gets you closer to what you want EVER.

In life –you absolutely get what you focus on.

You get what you expect—period. It  is really that simple.

Use the quick fix that creates magic—

Simply say: Won’t it be nice when I am thinking about what I want….and then also insert how you want to feel…Won’t it be nice when I am feeling…. remembering that behind the words–the feelings are the most powerful magnetic attractor. Trust  me on that one!

The “won’t it be nice” phrase IS an instant game changer. It gently but powerfully shifts your thoughts AND your feelings —in a sweet way that gets complete buy in from the Captain of your ship—YOUR unconscious mind—!

Won’t it be nice when —-you go on out there now and FOCUS on that which you want and have some fun!






Love this one….


I always love the short but sweet statements that can rivet your world.

I came across this one recently–


How about that for a thought for your day??!



The utter magic of these words will….


When you speak or think these words, magic happens..INSTANTANEOUSLY.

“I always know what to do, when to do it and how.” 

As I have said before, your unconscious mind runs the show–the WHOLE show. Whatever you tell it to do it honors and delivers. It does not care what your logical conscious mind may prefer, it simply does what you tell it to do. PERIOD.

Let’s face it, we all have those moments when we find ourselves confused, conflicted and unsure of what to do next. Let’s say you have a situation that could have some long term challenges and you cannot see how it could work out. We naturally say things like, I just don’t know what to do, or –gee I am so confused, or I just don’t see how this could be solved and be worked out. Keeping in mind what I just said –guess what kind of message that sends to your unconscious mind! Yup–a powerfully clear one that says, I am confused, keep me there, give me more of that confusion or even– there is no solution! Is that what you reallllllly want??? I think not! YIKES!!

These words above can shift your thinking AND feeling instantaneously.

Try it in those moments of uncertainty–with everything. Even the silly things that may not seem a big deal to you. Imagine that you are shopping and having a hard time finding just the right outfit. What if you are trying to decide which course to take or even what to do with your day off. It will work for the little things in your life and those big decisions like choosing between jobs or relationship challenges . It works. Trust me.

Have some fun with it. Say these magic words and notice the big internal shift. The moment you say them, either silently or out loud you will FEEL the change. Now your unconscious mind knows just what to do! HOORAY for you!

Go ahead and make some magic out there today!  🙂








Why “how vs why” ?

Hello everyone!

Here I am! Where has the time gone!? What a wild and stupendous ride I have been on! I have been working on an incredibly fulfilling and very productive project that I just closed the chapter on. The gifts that I received from this project were so unexpected and rich beyond my dreams. I  stepped into a place where I was able to truly live in the heart of what I am passionate about!

How did this happen? I said YES—without trying to figure it all out!  Hooray for me!

This brings me to what I want to write about today……I’d like to start with this piece.

I would like to beg you, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language.

Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them.

And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
From: Letters to a Young Poet

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….how great is that????

Sometimes we can dwell on questions about the lack of something in our lives. i.e. “Why haven’t I attained my goal yet? Why can’t I ever do it right? Why didn’t he/she call me? Why are they doing that to me? Why… why, why? Or my favorite which is ……as soon as I figure this out…….

‘Why’ questions can cause harm to our psyche because the thinking mind can so easily pipes up with a negative answer…like…..

—-Why? —Because you waited too long . Because you had a bad childhood. Because you are not lovable.  BLAHHHH—Because you don’t deserve it. Because you are not capable enough… not smart enough, BLAHHHHH—-not good looking enough.Because they don’t love you, respect you, understand

Like Rilke says, we can learn to love the questions and not force an answer that we cannot know at the time.

We can also learn to replace ‘why’ questions with ‘how’ questions that feel better and do not make us feel pretty darn yucky i.e. How can I be more gentle with myself? How can I relax and enjoy the day to day journey more? How can I be the grand and glorious person I know I am supposed to be? How can I be more loving? How can I be open to more love in my life? How can I have more fun?

‘How’ is a much more empowering question. Asking how instead of why, stifles that inner critic, our ‘damning’ voice, and allows the inner guide and our creativity to come up instead! WOOHOO!

YUP!  That’s is what I did–when this unexpected , seemingly overwhelming opportunity came up—- many miles away—I just said YES—-and then lived in the “how” every day. It was an exhilarating experience that opened the door for me to live in the gifts, talents and abilities I have—and grow and evolve even more! How cool is that??? IT WAS FUN!!

What can you say YES to today and then live in the HOW?

 Trust me, you will be so amazed at HOW it happens!

I am thrilled to be writing to you again—SO enriched by my unexpected gift!
