Monday Miracle: Love

What your world needs now is “love.” As you go through life and experience events that become teachable moments, always insert love. You don’t need another mountain to climb or vast rivers to cross, you need love. If you really want to live, prosper and ground yourself each and every day-embrace love.

Envelop yourself with love.

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.
You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” ~Lucille Ball

Repeat after me: I love ME! Say it again-I LOVE me. Louder now: I LOVE ME!

Once you have that inner knowing-I LOVE ME-regardless of vicissitudes, in spite of doubt, that transcends momentary anguish, you are personalizing miracles.  When you are entrenched in the space of love, life happens. Happiness happens. Unspeakable joy happens. Your world of manifesting everything you want happens. Gratitude happens. Life happens. You, in authenticity, happen.

The strongest teacher you can be is to radiate love. Love that is unconditional, blameless, guiltless is miraculous. Love in your world and love in you is the beacon of light that you can beam out to everyone, not for just some one special but especially for everyone. Live love, give love, teach love.

Monday Miracle: Passion

What is it that makes you sing? What is it that takes your breath away? What is it that stimulates you so much that you live, breathe, and think about it all of the time?

The answer to either one or all of these questions inform your passion.  Think about your answers, because therein lies your passion-a passion that fuels everything that you manifest.  It is a true axiom that you you think about happens and to take it further, what you are joyous enough about to sing about it, what takes your breathe away or what occupies your heart and thoughts all of the time-will happen.

You will see it come to be. You will realize your wants. You will create your passion IF…. The big IF is when you are practicing your passion with active energy. This passion we are talking about here is beyond physical passion – far beyond. The passion which allows you to manifest what you want or something better is a deep inner spark or fire that drives your every move and thought.

Henry Miller says, “what one wants is unrestrained passion, fire for fire.”

Fire for fire. Ignite the fire flame by:

  • Taking action. First make it real in your mind. Know what you know-inculcate that belief in your passion deep within. But, then take action. Do something every day that moves you closer to creating the tangible manifestation of  your passionate fire.
  • Being unrestrained. Be as unrestrained as the wind. Flow with it, create it. Breathe it, feel it, know it without any closure conditions or boxed-in thinking. Abandon conditioned thinking and embrace open solicitation and expectation.
  • Seeking. Don’t settle for selfish grandiosity.  Instead, seek resources that will strengthen your passion. Consult with others who have achieved to a level that you want to, but be very careful to make sure you are moving forward and not stalling by seeking too many opinions and remaining in the realm of safety while doing too little to flame your passion.
  • Asking. Be clear enough about your passion and ask from that space of truth and clarity for exactly for that. Nothing else, no more than that.

Have a strong passion. Live expectantly from that passion. Act deliberately in pursuit of your passion. Find an unshakable inner joy from passion. These are some of the steps advanced by Chris and Janet Attwood in the Passion Test.

Be passionate.

Miracle Monday

America the resilient. This is what I felt after watching many of the tributes to those who lost their lives and those who responded with heroic courage on 9/11/2001. We are resilient people and this nation is resilient –  God bless us all.

We are blessed – salute that within your heart. I am so grateful for my girlfriend Monica who stopped by to share her love with me. She came bearing gifts – a lovely candle (which I needed) and a packet of sachet pillows for my drawers (stop laughing I mean the furniture kind) this past weekend. It felt so good to just sit and talk for a while which as a residual from our friendship time together set up beautiful flowing happiness for me all weekend long. Love you Monica!

That act of spontaneous love sparked other miracles. Being this is miracle Monday think about what acts you have done that may have made somebody else happy and probably precipitated residual joy for them. What kind act from your heart have you done for someone else lately? Share it with us, please. The reason is that giving to others without expectation of reciprocation is a miracle magnet.

So let me ask again: What kind act from your heart have you done lately?

Do one or more random act of kindness for someone else today. Just do it and make this your Monday Miracle.


“I have found in life that if you want a miracle you first need to do whatever it is you can do – if that’s to plant, then plant; if it is to read, then read; if it is to change, then change; if it is to study, then study; if it is to work, then work; whatever you have to do. And then you will be well on your way of doing the labor that works miracles. ” ~Jim Rohn

It’s Time to Check In

The days in the 2011 calendar year are moving rapidly; it’s September already!

At the quarter year point, it is time to check in with yourself.  As you know, I have been working with Roy van der Mull,  facilitator for The Passion Test (Janet and Chris Attwood).  Roy is a natural for this process, he is an expert guide who patiently but deliberately moves you to your inner discovery of your valued passions. During our first two sessions, I discovered that my top passions were not what I expected.  Surprise, in these check in sessions with Roy I found out that I had shifted, I had changed.

My endorsement of Roy is clear. He helped crystallize in my heart, mind and soul what new direction I must now take and what decisions I can now make based on the knowledge of my new, shifted passions.  His advice from The Passion Test was “Whenever you are faced with a decision, a choice or an opportunity choose in favor of your passions.” Fuel your passions with the energy of choice, by checking in with what you want and how you feel, and confidently reach your goals.

It is time for you to check in.  ASK:

  • Have my passions shifted?
  • Have my goals changed?
  • What do I base my decisions upon?
  • Are my achievement markers relevant?

Pause for a while today and answer the above four questions. It is time to validate or remove some things in your life as I did.  Seek, do an independent investigation into what is of value to you. Pause to extract your passion(s).  Find a quiet space and set aside the time to discover and deepen your passion. Then, use the remaining quarter of this year to make conscious, practical decisions which support the practice  of your passions.  Be willing to change.

“I am willing to put myself through anything: temporary pain or discomfort means nothing to me as long as I can see that the experience will take me to a new level.” ~Diana Nyad

What pain and ecstasy are you willing to put yourself through? What will you arm yourself with? What power is yours?

Remember nothing can ever hurt you – and with passion in your heart, mind and soul – all the world’s afflictions cannot alarm or deter you.

Live your passion confidently, one decision at a time.

Miracle Monday

My the days flow faster and faster as we approach the calendar close of Year 2011.  Here is a thought that uplifted me when I read it:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

~Frank A. Clark

The message from that quote for this Miracle Monday is to check your path. If there are no obstacles, which is an absolute probability, then are you going anywhere purposeful.  Manifesting Monday Miracles is a pathway. Beware and be ready for the challenge of obstacles.  Let us extend this discussion to solutions when challenges arise. There are specific questions and actions to take when confronted with the potential detour of an obstacle:

  1. What Do I Love to Practice? Martha Beck suggests this question as one pivot for manifesting miraculous, sustainable change. Miracles manifest when you practice what you love. According to Beck, “Studies have shown that masters are simply people who’ve practiced a skill intensely for 10,000 hours or more. That requires loving—not liking, loving—what you do. If you really want to excel, go where you’re passionate enough to practice.” Even after the love is gone, re-kindle the passion or move on to another love.
  2. What did I Learn? There is something to learn from each challenge we face.  Ask yourself, what learning lessons are embedded here? Then, apply those lessons and create a manifesting future.  Take different actions, acquire different habits, create distinct opportunities along your learning path.

These are only two questions that will start a review of what you love and what you have learned.  It is my belief that loving and learning are the masterpieces of which miracles are made.  spend some quiet time reflecting on these questions, answer them with quiet resolve and then make a conviction to Manifest what you love and learned this Monday.

You are the creator of the masterpiece.

Monday Miracle

I lay claim to this day of miracles!

Making a declaration with feeling and focus is the most powerful way to manifest miracles this Monday.  What you focus upon, with gladdened expectancy and gratitude, the universe delivers.  Oftentimes miracles occur in unexpected ways and then sometimes they manifest in direct appearance of exactly what you wished.  The difference maybe in the intensity of the longing or it may be in the patient focus upon what you truly and deeply want and intend to happen.

Be patient. Robert Scheinfield, in The Eleventh Element, tells a profound story of how his grandfather taught him to make request and how to manifest exactly what he wanted.  One element of making your focus desire come true was patience, to have a knowing that the universe is working it out for you at the right time and in the right place. Don’t give up. “Never, never give up,” says Winston Churchill.  Instead, know that what you want is coming when you have active belief.

I know that I want to lose forty pounds, trust me I know I won’t lose it all today in spite of how badly I want to or recognize that I need to.  But, as Miss South Carolina, Bree Boyce, confirms, it takes desire, exercise, patience and discipline and time. For my metabolism  to fire up and burn more calories than I consume, I have to do heart-pumping exercise every day or I will never actively manifest my miracle.  Otherwise, I am fantasizing and setting unrealistic expectations.  This then breeds cynical “this is hooee” responses and ultimately unwarranted failure.  But, look out because my slim down method is to keep an active calendar of exercise and food intake as I structure my pending miracle.  I’ll update you with a new picture of my new trim.feel good, sexy self real soon-on a Monday.

Today, in your manifest time, be active, watchful, and patient. Know that you will see, feel and touch what you want today, maybe at the eleventh hour, and maybe in a form different from what you specifically want, but you will manifest a miracle. Today!

Spend a minute more working in your world of wonder.  Have active faith and expectancy…get your Monday miracle.  Feel good about what change is given and expect more goodness when other wants are aligned with your inner and outer wanting.  When there is divine synchronicity, you will magnetize unto you your miracle.

Manifest miracles.

Miracle Monday

When we take time to reflect upon the countless miracles that happen, visible or veiled, you have an increased sense of expectancy and hope.  Then these daily miracles become teachable lessons since miracles imprint a higher level of awareness which can easily change the quality of our life.

Every day contains opportunities, some call them miracles.  I have decided to concentrate on Monday miracles since it is an active means of attracting new bounties.  This focused awareness on Mondays, or any other day, canonizes a refreshing river of joyfulness and spirit mind.

Join me in creating intentional Monday miracles.

Here is the suggested process:

1. Wake up (regardless of the time of the day) and meditate. Wake up and feel alive. Take 10 minutes. Really get down deep into your internal awareness and meditate on what you want.

2. Come clean. Really clean up any lingering mess. Ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself and disallow negativity.  Then take the time to refresh your inner happiness; tap into your passion and enjoy the moments where you were funny, joyful, spiritually uplifted, attuned, in your natural zone of expression.
3. Quiet down. Take a few minutes on Mondays to quiet external noise and allow yourself to experience quiet peace.
4. Clear Your Focus. Clearly, vividly, expressly focus on ONE thing and only ONE thing every Monday. The next Monday you may choose to shift your focus to another thing or remain focused on what miracle you want to manifest.
5. See the end. Magnify your miracle.  See your finish point. Be in the scenery and experience all of the expressions that accompany embracing your Monday Miracle.

This process may require some practice for those who are beginning to manifest on Mondays, but in a short time, with direct commitment, you will accelerate through these steps with ease and purpose.

Begin today…right now.
Manifest your Monday (or any day) miracle right now and let us know the result….Be well, be clear, and expect miracles.
