Let Your Higher Self Hire Yourself

§ Filed under Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle, The Spiritual Laws of Success § No Comments

Hello Lovelies,

What if your Higher Self was the CEO and CFO of you?

What if you reported directly to your higher self?

Would you be up for a promotion or raise?

You know, a lot of times we act and believe as if our past self is the CEO of our lives.  Or that we report directly to our past self.  And how does that make us feel?  Our past self may be disappointed, cynical, and frozen in fear.  Our past self may still be operating as a wounded child.  Our past self is a judge that judges harshly on what we did or failed to do and not on what we have the potential to do.  We may have had a few of those bosses already in our lives.

Our higher self sees our true potential and honors our deep desires.  Our higher self wants our unique individual light to shine.  It wants the music in us to be heard and experienced.  Our higher self is on our side.  Our higher self is our champion, our cheerleader, and our fiercest friend….you know, one of those friends that will bail you out of jail and then kick your ass for being in jail in the first place (because that’s what you needed-a kick in the ass).

So rather than seeing how little you can do for your boss, why not begin impressing your boss.  Go ahead and start impressing your higher self.  Go ahead, make your higher self proud and become irreplaceable.

Big Hugs,

CM

Do You Feel Like You Won the Lottery?

§ Filed under I feel like I won the Lottery, Law of Attraction, Prosperity § No Comments

Do ya?  Well, do ya?  feel lucky, that is.  Picture me doing my best Eastwood impression circa 1970.  I was watching the TLC channel on Saturday night…a show called How the Lottery Changed my Life.  Before you go thinking that I must have no life at all cause I am home on a Sat. night AND I am watching The Learning Channel hear me and hear me well:  “You don’t know me…uh-uh! don’t you go thinkin’ you know me cause you don’t know me.”

Anyway, I am getting somewhere with this…my point is this.  (long story short) ~from the show~husband and wife trying to have a baby for years…going to fertility clinic for years to no avail…finally the wife’s sister volunteers to act as a surrogate and have this couple’s baby.  The baby is born (darling girl) and everyday as the husband and wife look at this precious miracle they say aloud, “I feel like I won the lottery.”  Every day–several times a day. Soooo, one Christmas the husband buys the wife some scratch off tickets…and, yep…you guessed it.  They win the lottery!!

Now, as a Certified Law of Attraction Coach, this makes serious sense to me. We attract from our feelings.  And when we’re feeling great…appreciative…like we won the frickin’ lottery…the Law of Attraction or that Great Cosmic Mirror reflects right back to us what we are feeling. It is why it is so important that we begin to take responsibility for our feelings…when we feel better~life gets better.  My friend Max likes to say, “The better it gets-the better it gets.”  and I believe her because it is happening to me and many of the people in my circle.  You are worth choosing the better feeling thought.  It takes a little bit of time and commitment but it is sooo very worth it.  Feeling Example:  “I feel like my life sucks…there is a dark cloud over me.” or “I feel like I won the lottery.” Which thought is a better feeling thought?  I think it was Henry Ford that said, ” if you think you can or if you think you can’t-you’re right.”

Of course, I have seen manifesting ones desires happen very quickly…IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE…  But, in general, there is a time of gestation. Julie (my daughter and business partner) and I call this “Buffer Time“.  It is the time it takes to get from the non physical realm to the physical.  Next time, more on BUFFER TIME…

Blessings and Grit,

Einstein’s Theory on Imagination

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle § No Comments

Hello Lovelies,

Facebook reminded me of a post I did 6 years ago.  And it holds true even more today.

Einstein said, “Imagination is the preview of your life’s coming attractions.” What are you imagining?

So what are you imagining?  It reminds me that the work we do is always an inside out job.  And you have to see it clearly on the inside first before we can manifest it in the outside world.  Our heart (not our physical heart), is like a garden full of lush soil.  And whatever seeds we are sewing, you can be sure will start to grow.  So what’s going to grow in your garden?

If someone cuts you off in traffic, is your first reaction going to be to give them the finger or to curse them out?  Or have you heard yourself say, “I don’t get mad I get even.”  None of us are perfect here.

But to become conscious of the seeds we are sewing in our hearts is a worthy venture.  Let’s begin the weeding and culling process while the lovely fruits and vegetables begin to take root and grow.

You are worth it!

I Got To Be Me!!

§ Filed under Current Events, Prosperity, What's Up With Christine Marie and Julie § 1 Comment

Hello Lovelies,

I don’t know if this happens to you.  But sometimes I wake up in the morning with a song in my head and in my heart.  For the last several days I’ve been waking up to Mr. Sammy Davis Jr. or the Sammala as he was affectionately known.  The song?  “I’ve Gotta Be Me.”

We are just a week past Easter.  And I want to ask you a question.    What dream or dreams have you’ve been longing to resurrect?  Or what dreams have you put away for whatever reason?  Busy lives, financial reversals, other obligations…Whatever the reason, it is now time to dust those dreams off and made current-relevant to this day and time.

I invite you to join Julie and I as we dust off and resurrect a dream.  I’m going to quote Sammy here.  “I won’t give up on this dream of life.  Dream that makes me what I am.”  If you haven’t heard it ever or in a while give it a listen.  It’s worth it.  And remember, let the pain push you until the vision can pull you.

I Guarantee You’ll Like These Odds..

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Radio Show and Authors, Relationships § No Comments

This week on Life With The Girlfriends, Julie and I chatted about a chapter in our new book that’s being released this month. (finally)..The Clutterfly Effect.   This chapter is called the goal-den hour.  It’s a short-ish chapter but it is one of the most powerful.

The goal-den hour is based on the idea that one hour of interior or spiritual work is equal to ten hours of exterior work.  Deepak Chopra speaks to this idea.  Dr. Wayne Dyer talks about this.  Tony Robbins call this time his hour of power.  We call it our bookends to our day.  Whatever you may call it, know that it is important to your goals and overall well-being, as well.

I’m not a gambler but I love these odds.  One hour of interior or spiritual work is equal to ten hours of exterior work.  I heard Oprah talk about this in terms of alignment.  Getting into alignment with your goals and dreams and well-being is absolutely important.  So many of us spend time daily going in the opposite direction.  We have negative thoughts, we spend time fantasizing worse case scenarios, instead of spending that time getting into alignment.

So what’s in the goal-den hour?  Here are some ideas.  Inspirational and motivational reading.  Harlequin Romance novels don’t count ;o)..What about journaling?  Not a diary of your day’s activities, but a journal of what is going on spiritually and emotionally with you and the drection you are headed.  Affirmations are really great inside the goal-den hour.  Affirmations in the right direction.  How many times during the day do we affirm, “I’m such a loser-I can’t do anything right!”  Switch it to, “Every day in every way I’m gettng better and better.”  Or, whatever works for you.  Visualizations are awesome.  How about a visualization where you meet your awesome future self?  She lays it all out for you on how you gotto your dream and goals!

There’s plenty of fun and inspiring things that can go inside your goal-den hour.  Appreciation and gratitude work is important.  Remember, what we appreciate, appreciates.  How about some forgiveness work?  I know a couple who prays for an hour before bedtime.  Whatever works for you.

Get inside the goal-den hour and see how it can begin working for you.  One hour of interior work is equal to ten hours of exterior work.  I guarantee you will like those odds!!

Also, we had a wonderful interview with Sandy Alemian.  She is the author of the book “What was God Thinking?”  Sandy shares in her book, not only her challenges, but those of so many, around the themes of loss, relationships, finances, fear, truth and self-esteem.  She shares her life on these pages, and lets God lovingly bring her back to a place where fear doesn’t exist.

The Little Shop Said Closed for Remodeling

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle, Relationships § No Comments

My husband had to pick up some papers in Freeport this week.  I made the drive with him because I wanted to stop at one of my favorite candle stores.  As I approached the store, I saw a big red sign that said “closed.”  My heart sank.  Then I saw the rest of the sign.  It said, “Closed for Remodeling.”

I was instantly relieved.  Freeport has been hard hit by the economy and I thought my little hand made candle shop had been hit as well.  However, it was just closed for remodeling.  It’s not a no from the universe–it’s a not now.

It’s not a bad idea to consider being closed for remodeling in our own lives.  Taking some time off to rethink, re-imagine, refocus what’s going on in our lives, can be a really good thing.  In business, it’s good to take inventory.  You get to see what you have, what your missing, and what you’d like to have.

In your personal life, it may be time to be closed for remodeling for a while.  Maybe you want to change directions, revise your course or just do some major or minor interior or exterior decoration.  Everyone gets a chance to reinvent themselves.  Switch the decor up a wee bit.  Prepare for an upgrade.

With spring finally here, it may be an awesome idea for you and me to do a little remodeling.  It could be some physical remodeling.  It could be the remodeling of our business.  It could be the remodeling of our dreams.

Sometimes our dreams get stale.  It may be time to dust them off or shake them up or even grow them up.  Either way, this spring let’s consider being closed a bit for remodeling–or at the very least a really good spring cleaning.

xoxo

Is it a Hobby? Or is it a Committment?

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle § No Comments

There comes that point in each of our lives where we inevitably have to ask ourselves how serious am I about this.  “This” could be anything that you find is always on your wish, dream, or desire list.  Yes, it is always there.  Year after year after year..

Did you ever stop and wonder how sometimes these things that are always on our wish list ends up getting sabotaged?  Life tends to shakes things up for us if we are continually in the realm of Hobbyist and by shaking things up it keeps us in status quo.  It becomes two steps forward and three steps back.

  Are you meaing to write that book?  Perhaps you have some pages written or you have stacksof 3×5 notecards filled with tidbits.  It might be just a well-meaning hobby.

If there is no real forward movement or if it is still sitting on your to-do shelf you might consider this–you have a hobby on your hands.  No judgment here.  It’s just good to know.  The care and feeding of Hobbies are different than the care and feeding of Committments.

However, if you’re at that crossroad where you are just plain tired of having that “thing” that is always on your wish list and you are ready to bring that dream or desire from a hobby into a committment,  there is no time like the present.

  Make this week all about  the steps to take to live in the committfment of your dreams.  Be prepared to deal with all the emotions and feelings that come up when you are truly ready to take that dream from a hobby to a committment.  Look that resistance in the face and see what’s inside of it.  You’re ready.

Intuition~Are you getting your downloads?

Hello Lovelies..

There has been so much chatter on the web about intuition lately.  Intution.  Is it going to give the numbers for the big jackpot?  Is it going to tell you where you are going to meet your soul mate?

For me, there are times that I get direct “hits.”  However, it’s not that often.  But I am always open to those direct hits.  In the matters of intuition I feel that Heart Work is much more important.

Maybe they are one and the same thing-maybe not.  But I know for sure we all have access to our Hearts.  Sure, it is a matter of cultivating our connection to our hearts..and it is important to learn how to make the 12 inch journey from our head down to our heart.  And, that takes time..attention..intention.  It takes learning to listen with our “inner ear” and it takes a real basic element of trust.

The cool thing about making the twelve inch journey is that you can look back on your life and say with no regrets, “I always listened to my heart.”  Really..that is cool. The heart has its own path and that is hardly ever a straight line.  In fact, it probably looks like a kaliedescope of puzzle pieces that is only made clear by unconditional love and unwavering trust. (“I’ll have a glass of each, bartender.”)

It’s important to add a small sentence or two on fear.  Fear is usually ego based..so if you find yourself in fear that is a real good time to quiet the monkey mind and connect to the heart.  The heart will calm you.  The heart will give you peace.  The heart will give you clarity.  The heart will give you courage.  In fact, the Latin root word of  the word courage is “heart.’

Is the path of the heart quick?  Probably not.  Why?  My take is it knows if you are truly ready and prepared for what you want.  The heart loves you in a way that you probably don’t even love yourself.  So, the next time someone offers you a free intuition course~come prepared to check in with your heart…you can trust your gut on that ;o)

get your mind out of the gutter..I said Goal-den Hour!!!

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle § 108 Comments

Sign up here for our weekly Hot Topics..Jules and I aim to make the last six months of this year waaaay better than the first for all of us..so watch Hot Topics for what we have up our sleeves..

What to do with that goal-den hour?  It’s been said in many metaphysical circles that an hour of inner work is equal to 10 hours of external work.  Wow!!  So, we’re all about creating that extra goal-den hour a day of inner work so that we can leverage that extra 10 hours of external work.   10 minutes 6 times a day..taking time to consciously breathe…to meditate (there are many different ways)..take time to journal…your thoughts are the previews of your life’s coming attractions..how about creating a vision board or a mind map and then studying for ten minutes throughout the day…and the list goes on.  We know a very successful woman who creates 5 goal-den hours for herself each day.  She is proof positive of what can be created by doing the internal work first as leverage.  whoo hoo!

Join us Friday night May 21 @ 9:00 pm CST for Christine Marie and Julie Talk Authors!  Our guest will be Dr. Craig Martin author of Elemental Love Styles.  Love and Relationships..now that’s a Hot Topic!!  Come listen and ask your questions in the chatroom.

Cool Stuff Alert!!! Coming In June..”Do ya feel lucky?..well, do ya?  I hope you said yes..and then be on the lookout!

Peace..

and I hope you dance and keep dreamin’

Christine Marie

 

  So, may I ask you “Are you doing what you want?

This is a really good time to take stock and ask yourself are you on track for your dreams, desires, and goals?  Or, you may be saying to yourself “what dreams?  who has time for dreams when I barely have time to brush my teeth!”I hope you still are brushing your teeth and flossing as well~~at least those teeth you intend on keeping.

Consider the use of what Julie and I call “the Goal-den Hour.”  You start by giving yourself the gift of 10 minutes for yourself..six times a day.  First , use the first ten minutes just to breathe.  Consciously breathe.  Connect to the breath and big deep belly breaths for ten whole minutes.  You should begin to feel calmer and more open. 

During this time see yourself filling up with Love…all the love you will need for the day.  And if you run out~take some more time to fill up on this precious fuel.

If you haven’t signed up for our weekly ezine be sure you do..we love to stay connected to you!!

Spring has Sprung

§ Filed under Current Events, Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Radio Show and Authors § No Comments

 

 How’s it going for you?  It is finallay spring here and I’ve been pondering on the adage “Hope Springs Eternal.”  Hope is a good thing.  And, legitimate hope is an even better thing.  What gives us legitimate hope?  What gives us authentic, realistic hope?

Coming to the understanding that we live in an amazing universe that is on our side. ..that this universe has our back..that this universe loves us and adores us.  The universe is always working in our favor.

Now, how do we get to the belief that the above is true?  CUZ  I said so, that’s why.  Just kidding.  But Einstein did say at the end of his life~”there are only two ways to live your life-one is as though nothing is a miracle and the other is as if everything  is a miracle.

Ultimately it is a matter of faith and for many it is a leap of faith.  Good ol’ faith.  Perhaps it is better said that “Faith springs eternal.”  I love seeing life as a miracle always waiting to surprise and delight me.  The pelicans have arrived here.  They stop over on their way to  wherever.  But every year it is always a treasure to see them and it does signal spring is finally here.  Maybe it is good to say that, “Spring keeps hope eternal.”

Please join us this Friday evening at 9:00 pm CST as Julie and I interview authors Stewart and Janet Swerdlow.  We LOVE these guys and it is our hope that we don’t do too much gushing and fawning over them.  They are the authors of True Blood Blue Blood and1000 Affirmations and The True Reality of Sexuality and more…and lots of DVD’s on simultaneous existances and other phenomenom and they have awesome seminars you can attend and you can travel with them to exotic locations to understand the “real” history of things.  Listen, call in with your questions or comments and tell your friends on the “fringe.”  It’ll be a good time.

Here’s the link to the radio show.  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/christine-marie/2010/03/27/christine-marie-and-julie-talk-to-authors
