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!

No Deposit No Return

Speaking of goals and dreams, have you ever noticed there is no such thing as coasting or middle ground? It is a fact of life that you can’t coast or stay in the middle ground without you noticing you’re slipping behind and everyone else is moving ahead.

Abraham Hicks usually ends her seminars with the idea that we are perfectly incomplete.  It’s true.  Therefore there is no coasting.  There is no middle ground- only sewing seed in the good ground of being perfectly incomplete.

So let’s take a quick look at the pillars in your life:  spiritual, health, finance, career, service, and friends and family.  Is there an area that after taking an honest look at you would say that you’ve been coasting?  That you’ve stopped funding its spiritual bank account?  Well, today make a deposit and move back into growth cycle instead of living off the interested that you funded to date.

Motivate then Dominate

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

Just wondering.   When you have some pretty big goals that aren’t going to happen over night, what keeps you motivated?  What keeps you motivated when the obstacles hit or progress is going slower than you anticipated?

Let’s assume you burned the boats.  What I mean by that is you made a quality decision.  You’re not going back or giving up.  So how do you traverse those down times?  What do you do when momentum stalls and motivation wanes?

Here’s three suggestions.  Remember, that you are coming from a place of victory.  That means all you have to do is walk through the plan.  Knowing you are coming from a place of victory means your attitude can be one of achievement and success not disappointment and discouragement (which are always dream killers).

Also, be comfortable with the small failures along the way.  Author Seth Godin said that he probably has more successes than the average guy but probably twice as many failures as well.  So get use to failing.  And remember that fail stands for Forge Ahead In Leverage:)

And, fast forward your life 2 years from now.  What would it look like if you just kept moving toward your dream?  What does it look like five years from if you never stopped regardless of what happens?  Now see your life 5 years from now if you decide to quite.

There is really no choice but to NOT QUITE.  Remember it is not a nine inning game.  You don’t quit until you win.  This is when you dominate.

Seeds of Greatness

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

Hello Snowflakes,

Yes, I’m talking to you.  I’m here to say that in the midst of your crazy busy lives, bills to pay, oil to get changed, groceries to be shopped, teeth to be cleaned….there is no other like you.  You may feel like your just another rat in the rat race.  Or you may feel like your just another hamster on the wheel that goes round and round.  But may I remind you, Snowflake, that you are unique.

From the very first day you came on this planet, deep within you, were planted seeds of greatness.   What I mean by that is you have a purpose and a destiny much bigger than the hamster wheel or the rat race.  What if I told you that you were meant for times like this?  What if I told you it is time for you to wake up and realize every day counts and every day matters?

There’s a problem only you can solve.  There’s a book that only you can write.  There’s a song that only you can sing.  There’s a prayer that only you can pray.  I challenge you to find what that is.  This will show up for you in the tiny seeds of your desires.  Start listening to that quiet still voice deep inside of you.  It may be saying it is time.  Yes, do it for you.  Do it for humanity.  But, most of all, do it for the honor and glory of the one that created you.

And yes Snowflakes are beautiful.  So Snowflakes, don’t let your dreams melt away.

Here’s a little song for us Day Dreamers.

Dare to Dream!

Leave The Past Behind

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

Greetings dreamers! Last week we spoke about the power of our thoughts and the resultant actions on  our feelings.  And remembering how important feelings are in the equation of the production of our dreams.  So you can see that nothing matters more than that you feel good.  Stay tuned for our Feel Better Now community coming soon.  Because nothing matters more than that you feel good.

So I can hear you saying to me now, “How can I dare to dream a dream when I have so many past failures. I’ve tried a million times and it never works out.”  Here’s my answer to this.  My answer is a question.  What if you believed you were starting from a place of victory?  Can you believe this?

When you believe you are starting from a place of victory, you already know you’ve achieved your goal. You’re just reverse engineering the process.  When you start from a place of victory, all obstacles have already been overcome.  Then, obstacles merely become knowledge.  And for us dreamers out there, the knowledge becomes wisdom.

So if you’ve been contemplating writing that book, sharing your story, or starting your own business – it’s time to remember that you are starting from a place of victory. And it is time to forget those past disappoints and defeats.

Paul , writing to the Philippians has the perfect quote. “… but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, ”

It’s a powerful choice to not look back. Many a race has been lost by looking back.  The famous horse Seabisquit, lost by a fraction of a second because his jockey looked back at the very last moment. So let’s press forward and live in victory.

Here’s a little music to run your race:)

Check out our last Life With The Girlfriends podcast on BBSradio. Julie was joined by Greg, her brother for this podcast done in San Diego.  Also, Julie interviewed author David Ross about his life story.  The book is titled, “I Just Quit- And So Can You.”

Dreams and Beliefs

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

Hello Lovelies,

I know I’m like a dog with a bone here, but I still want to talk about your dreams.  You see, I care for you.  And I want you to be and I want you to feel passionate and excited about your life.  Now I’m not talking about sell everything and move to Belize, even though I heard the scuba diving is pretty awesome.  But what I am saying is even though you have full busy lives: kids, grandkids, family, and businesses- I still believe there can be some small patch in your soul that you can resurrect for your unique dream.

So, what have you been planting lately?  Here in Illinois it’s almost time to plant the corn and soybeans.  And in the fall we will be harvesting a lot of corn and soybeans.

So I’m asking you today to simply reflect on the type of thought seeds you’ve been planting lately.  Are they seeds of discontent?  Are they seeds of non-belief?  Are they seeds of lack?  Perhaps even seeds of desperation?

I’d like to share a quick story.   My mother, God rest her soul,  whenever anyone asked her, “How ya doing?” she would always say, “I’m depressed.” Liked a well trained parrot, I picked up those same words-I’m depressed.  Even as a young girl, I used to proclaim that I was depressed whenever anyone asked me how I was doing.  Honestly, I didn’t even know what it meant.  It wasn’t until I was in college when some close friends were making fun of me because I  always said I was depressed, that I became consciously aware of what I was saying.  I was unconsciously planting the seeds of depression.  You bet I deliberately started planting different seeds from that point on.  And we wonder why depression can be multi-generational.

I’m saying all this because I want you to be aware of the thought seeds you are planting.  The thoughts you think relate to how you feel.  Our feelings are the results of our thoughts.  And you attract the good results you want with your feelings.  So where ever you’re at in your life let’s imagine it’s springtime.  And start planting seeds of expectation, joy, rebirth, and hope.  And let’s expect a bumper crop of good things this year.

So start believing.

Many Blessings this year,

-Christine Marie M.A

Your Dreams and The Power of Your Emotions

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

Hello Lovelies,

What do your emotions have to do with your dreams?

Let’s say you’ve dusted off a long held dream from the back of the shelf.  And, let’s say you’ve made that dream relevant to your life today.  And it looks pretty good.  You got some brand new hope.  There’s some fresh air that’s entered into your life.

So what happens when some old crappy feelings rear their ugly heads?  I’m going to say again that nothing matters more than that you feel good.  Does this mean you stuff all your feelings down in exchange for a faux happy feeling?  Of course not!  But it is important to have a plan or blueprint in place to move your low level feelings legitimately up the better feeling scale.

And why is this important?  We attract from our true legitimate feelings.  If you find yourself in  a wishy-washy state, then it’s no wonder that you are having mixed results.  If this sounds like a little bit of voodoo, it’s not.  It’s based on a Universal Law of Like attracting Like.  And this law is just as powerful as the Law of Gravity and the Law of Lift and Thrust for an airplane.

So remember, if you are totally down in the dumps and got up on the wrong side of the bed, you can gently sweetly coax yourself to a better feeling place.  Think about grabbing a cup of tea and taking a few deep breaths.  Give thanks for the brand new day.  And experience a better feeling.

Check out this song this week. ” Feelings” by the great Ella Fitzgerald.  That’s one silky smooth  voice.

Next week we’ll talk about how our feelings are the result of our deep seated thoughts in our heart.

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.

Why Can’t I Finish Anything?

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

Julie here.  I want to let you in on a little secret and problem I have been having lately.

I just can’t finish anything.  And finally I had enough when Christine Marie A.K.A Mom said, “Julie, what is going on with you.  You can’t finish anything.  And that’s not like you.  You need to figure out what’s going on”

She’s absolutely right.  I have several things I’m working on from selling a motorcycle on ebay that I can’t get up to creating an app.  And with every new and exciting idea that I have, my list of things I want to complete just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Jack Canfield talks about connecting with Completion Consciousness.  There are so many times we get to the place where we almost finish something but then we stop.  We never do the last 10% to actually complete the project or get our idea to a place that can really benefit us.

Why?  Here’s what I’ve come up with.  Starting a project feels incredibly fun and exciting…bursting with anticipation and possibilities.  And once the real work begins, energy fades.  Things don’t go as planned, problems come up, and at some point,  negative thoughts pop in my head.  Do any of these ring a bell for you?

1)  This is taking way too much time…. for the pay off.

2)  There are so many little obstacles popping up……maybe I’m not supposed to do it now.

3)  This is costing me more money……when will it stop ?

4)  Maybe this new project is a better way to spend my time, money, energy.  Maybe I’m in alignment with that.  (And then the project never gets done.)

We can get in a cycle where it is just hard to complete things.  It starts weighing on us and it takes precious energy from us.  And that’s where I’m at today…feeling weighed down and not feeling very successful.  Which is not a place where I want to stay.

So if you are like me and find yourself in this cycle of not completing and finishing things….

I INVITE YOU TO JOIN ME!  Let’s make some space by clearing the clutter from our lives and breathe some fresh new energy.  That old energy of not finishing things is taking up valuable real estate.

Here’s the plan:

1)  List all the things you haven’t finished but have not let go of.

2)  Pick the top 5 that you are going to complete.

3)  Activate the 3 D’s (not double d’s -that’s my bra size:)  Decide, Delegate, or Delete.

4)  Decide right now which tasks you can do yourself and pick one to do first.

5)  Delegate the ones you can get help on.  It’s amazing how much people want to help.

6)  Delete once and for all the ones that no longer support who you are or that are not that important.

7)  Put an end date on it.  I don’t know your list, but I’ve cleared my dance card and I’m giving myself 1 week to get the top 5 things done.  I’ll check back with you on Monday to let you know how I did.

My list may not get competed as planned, but it will get completed!  And I am going to celebrate next Monday!

Join me!  You can do it!   Let’s change the trajectory of our lives right now and get  on that completion consciousness train.

Here’s to you and your success,

Julie

I Confess…I have beliefs that no longer serve me

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

I confess…confession is good for the soul..so, I confess.  Now I am having second thoughts.  Let me reconsider.  I may just be able to write today’s stuff and just not confess what I was going to confess.  Instead, I want to revisit those old belief systems that are well worn and oh so very comfortable.  A belief  so mightily ingrained that it can’t even be seen or spotted anymore.

It is truly part of the landscape.   Like a comfortable old night shirt~thread bare~barely hanging on~and a material diary of the last 15 years, an outmoded belief that really no longer serves you ~ yet, you continue to entertain it.  Yes, it knocks on your door and you let it in.  Not only do you let it in but you have the room lit with candles and mood lighting, there is some Barry White in the background, and you pour wine for the two of you from a box.  You entertain that belief..you serve it wine..and you may even have a roll in the hay with it.. In the morning you wake up,,your mascara streaked, schmeared, and schmudged and you smell of cheap wine and pity.

Next time, when the door bell rings you can answer it..but..instead of inviting that old belief of lack, poverty, victimhood, constriction,or whatever you name it in to your head just say “Hi” and give it one of those Mickey D coupons for a free cone and say adieu or adios or sayonara, or even bon voyage.  Oh and forget I ever mentioned about the 15 year old thread bare nite sirt..and no, there is no stocking cap that goes with that.  It’s the truth I tell ya..the sacred truth.
