It was about 6 am and the home phone rang. Who would call at that hour? Was it family with timely news? No baby was in anyone’s belly so... Hello? I said from bed, and didn’t sound asleep or sleepy; that was good.

 

It was a male with a firm and fully awake speaking voice. Is this Rachel? Was this a solicitation call at this hour? Yes?…..  Rachel, and he went on to apologize if he woke me up (maybe I did not sound awake after all). As he continued, he explained that he was calling desiring an appointment for a Reading by skype for he and his wife.

 

I asked where he was calling from, so as to be ready to point out that if he was on the east coast, it was 2 hours earlier here. Six a.m., or even 8 a.m. is earlier than the proper etiquette I was raised to follow: no phone calls earlier than 9 am wherever the person lived, and no later than 8:30 pm unless otherwise agreed upon. He replied, and I realized he was calling from clear across the world. I mentioned what time it was and let the time talk go.

 

I got out of bed and walked to the computer and desk in another room to look at my appointment book. We discerned the time difference between us. It was late evening where he was, but asked if 2 hours from then was possible.  Still would only be 8 am by me, so oooh, noop; those who know me, know I choose to sleep through 8 am, with little exception. We set for a better time for me, he agreed, and I got their information for skype, emails and their dates of birth.

 

I use birth dates as an invaluable tool to know people well without knowing them, from their past life emotional influences, to how they think, what they desire, how and who they love, what they are passionate about and motivates them to action, as well as career and life lessons, etc., etc.  I can also know what is going on in their life, and what changes may be coming up. I prepare this before every Reading.

 

Back to bed for now, though. I would call my concierge later to let her know about my appointment, but even she wouldn’t be working for several more hours yet. Did I mention this was Sunday? The day people generally sleep even later than work week days?

 

Ah the bed, pillow and blankets. Yummy heaven, but wouldn’t the agreed time be too early for him? Phone rings again. I didn’t need to be intuitive to know who was calling. Could we reset the time for later than we’d agreed, he asked.  We worked it out.

 

Early evening came time to do my consultation with the young husband and wife from overseas. I turned on the computer and skype, adjusted the camera lens perched atop the screen, and was ready.

 

I saw this lovely youthful man and wife on screen; and talked with them one at a time for their personal questions and situations. I will change the names to protect the innocent. All Readings are confidential; no names divulged or any way of connecting situations with people.

 

I also say innocent because they were each individually very wide open people, with beautiful hearts that had been hurt. And innocent, I say again, because they have not retaliated from suffered injustices; simply were asking how to find joy and peace. So to protect the innocent, I will call them Adam and Eve.

 

You may find yourself or loved ones in similar emotional situations, beautiful hearted people who were hurt. Some retaliate and can harden the heart and close the gates, while others suffer emotionally without hurting others, simply desiring to find the path to inner peace and a healed heart.

 

What joy it brought me that I was gifted with being chosen to assist in lifting their hearts and show them the truth that set them free. Eve, a young, brilliant and talented person, suffered ongoing sadness without knowing why, experiencing low energy of body and spirit, not ruling out letting herself expire.

 

Divine Spirit (I know as God) guided me to see the cause for emotional feeling of emptiness that was weakening her over years. Looking deeper into it, we were able to see more clearly the very, very old patterns that could actually be identified as now balanced, and available to choose to end, so as not to keep ‘payback’ in motion when it didn’t have to go on.

 

If I ‘hit’ you without intention to do so, and it hurt, and you ‘hit’ me back so I could feel how that felt, we can stop there. We both felt it, got it, and can move away from it. Or we can keep hitting each other for no other reason than being unwilling to let the hurt go. Eve can use the insights into her past as a spring board, breathing freer with expanded love, including self love. She saw what was behind it all, and chose not to let those deeply cloaked thoughts and feelings zap her energy as they had. Karma complete.

 

After years of desiring to enter the field she was passionate about, even her extensive education hadn’t been able to break through to move it into actuality. Now, with the insightful tools God gave me to see, we had clarity that not only was it an occupation she held in former life, but by now allowing her energy to lift up and out of the pits, the door would re-open. 

 

Adam had been mistreated; slandered by many over and over, eventually even strangers. It affected much of his entire (young) life and he felt his self-respect had been nearly completely torn away.  Feeling poisoned with anger, revengeful thoughts became noticeable and he did not want to act on them.

 

We unveiled truth that no one can rip self-esteem from us, unless we choose to believe it. God always sees us as perfect, as we grow and evolve, always roots for us to love and lift ourselves higher, and loves us all unconditionally, so even loves those who have to learn lessons for things they do.

 

By seeing through God’s eyes, Adam, too, could forgive and know the others simply will learn at some point in the eternal future. The wisdom gained allows his heart to evolve now and the results can only be  wonderful.

 

He understands now that his choices not to stoop to similar or worse behaviors, are a huge reason to acknowledge how dignified he actually was and is. By knowing how it feels to be in the situation he experienced, he can have empathy and help others, showing by example how to step out of believing  in being victim, and take the reins to always know God is the win, and miraculous. He took back his personal spiritual power, no longer thinking others had control, knowing that God the good is in control. His long-held expectation of the same treatment would dissipate and so would not participate in drawing it to him, as a thought magnet, any longer.  Faith in God is a small seed but once planted, moves mountains.

 

By changing his thoughts and feelings, thereby allowing the stagnant energy to rise up, all things would begin to align with his higher knowing of his true essential God-given value. They were given an assignment to start their days telling each other what they are grateful for. Counting blessings allows us to see how much we have been given, thereby sets the expectation of blessings.

 

Protect the innocent you, and the innocence of others.

Do you spend your time complaining about whatever doesn’t seem right or fair, or what you would call downright despicable? Are you getting so tired of life being a mess, as you might call it, that you are wanting a long sleep? Is your perception of life weighing you down? How many times do we say or hear, That (person) is gonna be the death of me, it’s killing me to…., I’ve been breaking my back for…he/she broke my heart, or I could just die, and more?

 

Do you like living or not? Are you desiring to live long or declaring your way out? We’ve talked before in my columns about the power of words in general, but more importantly, there is a secret about what really is unconscious suicide; a secret that could help you live not only longer but happier and healthier.

 

Take a little quiz. First notice the energy in your body right now. Are you reading this while under deadlines at work or in any way feeling a little tense? To take the quiz I would like you to be in a normal relaxed state and really notice the calm state you are in. I don’t mean meditative state or sleep-ready state, just regular, not tense, state. Now, ask yourself two questions; one after the other.

 

What is one of your favorite foods? Your energy should have stayed the same. If your least favorite and foul smelling food was put in front of you as the only thing you can eat, do you recognize how your energy feels now?

 

If you want to ask yourself your own test questions, be able to notice which question keeps your energy calm and which question allows you to recognize a subtle or not so subtle change of energy in you. How often do you create or allow a sickening rise of toxic flare-up? Have you become a nuclear Waste plant? Do you Waste your gift of beautiful life force energy?

 

This, by the way, is a great way to gain your highest and best answers for what is in your best interests when faced with choices. If you ask questions about anger, listen to your spirit help you diffuse.

 

On a general, day-to-day basis, are you giving rise to much energy that is not calm?... A constant complainer on facebook, always bringing up subjects in conversation that annoy you or even anger you? 

 

You are not only choosing that energy for yourself, but sharing it with others. NOT a gift.  How about choosing to fall asleep in joyful, grateful, loving thoughts that God the good is in charge and miraculous?

 

There is a higher law than most of us pay attention to or give much importance. It is action and reaction. A higher morality serves us well in more ways than you may realize, and that embodies love. There is ALWAYS a reaction in our bodies, and it Includes calm inner peace, joy bliss, unconditional loving, but can also react to your anger, hatred, envy, egotism and intolerance.

 

These register a diagnosis in the cells of the body. Though they possess immeasurable reserves, they can’t endure year after year of maltreatment. Our systems either sparkle or inflame our cells. You are at the controls. Are you systematically enflamed about ‘stuff?’ Can you turn it down a notch or two please?

 

If you can make a difference in what irks you, do, yet it doesn’t mean you must have a particular mindset that has to be on high heat. Think about it. We’ve been warned not to sweat the small stuff. Is everything huge to you? God doesn’t know big or small.

 

You could choose thoughts that bring joy for being able to participate in repair and rebuilding whatever ‘it’ is. Yes that is a real, and tender, ripe, choice, choice for your precious system.

 

What is involved when you are ‘hot?’ Too hot and the system will blow up. How about bowels (can’t let that go), gall (that galls me) bladder, esophagus (find that hard to swallow), stomach (can’t stomach that), constipation (holding on to that), abdomen (poisonous thoughts), eating disorders (fed up), insomnia (don’t know how to give it a rest and surrender with faith). Do you get the idea?

 

When your medical provider hands you a diagnosis that you aren’t happy with, it could well be that the diagnosis is due to you not choosing to be happy. So, how to be happy? Start with how do you perceive what I call God? Punisher, to be feared, makes bad things happen, etc.?

 

How about gives us free will to take charge of our perceptions; thereby happiness or anger. Also, all which occurs has a higher reason so has value. Add in only loves unconditionally so wants us to behave in that way too. Wants the best for us, i.e. only good.

 

Maya Angelou says when we know better we do better. Oprah, as a long-time journalist concludes that when people ignore issues, something big will happen to get our attention. It’s not how to punish each other but wake up to root causes and treat each other better.

 

Always ask what can I learn from that? What were we blind to that is glaring at us to delve deeper into the root cause? Did that person have such mistreatment that only nonjudgmental love and forgiveness can give them a lift into potentially rising?

 

We learn that antidepressants, and benzodiazapenes like valium, xanax and klonopin mask emotional issues but don’t make them go away; in fact make things worse and are highly addictive. People go looking for guns in that state of empty spirit, inside.

 

People in the news and those with the reins of our policies and traditions are human too and may veer from the truth for ego. Life does eventually ‘out’ truth and bring issues to light as spiritual balance is always the real force and glue.

 

It may not be on your timetable, but knowing God is trustworthy and the divine timer, can allow you to keep from blowing up your own personal toxic balloon in your own face. Living in that faith allows you to take things lightly, from a higher viewpoint, and focus on more happiness in your personal world. We must save and heal our own spirit.

 

In your life’s time, live from love and faith that God has good intentions, good reasons, good solutions, and goodness meant for us all, in divine time. Or you can choose unconscious personal suicide.

 

I Know it’s heavenly on the other side, and we are eternal, but you may want to stay alive longer in this incarnation, and enjoy some more of what life has to offer. Seeing the good or not is your God-given free will. Grow and evolve in bliss now or later, also your free will. I hope you save yourself. Dance!

New Year’s Day brings an unusual Heavenly event, and the beginning of Big Change. We have a New Moon on the same morning! That hasn’t occurred in a Very Long time, as you might imagine. But there are some things that make it Much More Unusual.

 

As with all New Moons, as they grow in size (until they are Full Moons) so will new beginnings for each of us, grow larger like a seed that will sprout. New Moons bring in new opportunities for new beginnings once a month, every month of every year, and this Moon starts growing smack dab, first thing in the morning Jan. 1.  Not only does that assist us in sprouting our New Year’s resolutions beginning right away, no waiting ‘lines,’ but there’s more. The news just gets bigger.

 

To set the stage, I’ll remind you of a few things. The Moon circles the zodiac once a month; the Sun once a year. Mercury and Venus are similar to completing one cycle in one year.  Mars takes 2 years. Then there are the planets that take longer, like Jupiter which takes 12 years, all the way out to Pluto’s 248 years.  But the Moon and the Sun meet up in the sky ‘for coffee and conversation’ once each month; and we call it a New Moon event.

 

This New Moon occurs in the zodiac placement of Capricorn so we are beginning new traits and characteristics that resonate with Capricorn. That includes the structure and bones of who we are. It covers traditions and the way things have always been…so usually once a year we build new structures that we can depend upon. Capricorn works hard and this New Moon will be a whopper of new design if you work it.

 

Because the outer planets take So long to make one complete cycle around the zodiac, when they make a geometrical aspect to other heavenly bodies, their effect is heard round the world, let’s say. These are the big spenders with the big stakes. This New Moon brings us not just one powerful aspect, mind you, but a bowl-ful go along with this Lunation Jan. 1. Not your usual football game in the local park, this is Superbowl.

 

The geometrical aspects that occur with our heavenly planetary bodies that same morning, are spoon-bending, mind-bending, life bending. Things will be a popping in January and will show up again with more results in April!!  We have the four action-starter zodiac signs making a square aspect to each other like on the 3 bases and home plate of baseball. The bases are loaded, there are no ‘outs,’ a home run is happening and the score changes dramatically. You are part of that major event. Pluto has exposed to us for years what old traditions are outdated, broken down and need major overhaul. Now it begins building state-of-the-art.

 

Uranus in Aries is about shaking up the status quo and starting over, asking who am I, who do I want to be and giving us courage to build a new and better identity. Mars in Libra gives us the motivation and energy to get ‘er done with beauty, grace, building better relationships. Jupiter in Cancer brings a higher mind, expansion and blessings to family, home and countries, setting a new stage to nurture and protect our earth home. These planets in a square means there’s no way out of the box. It must be done (on earth as it is in heaven.) Resistance isn’t in our best interests, right?

 

You’ve likely been thinking a lot for some time about what you would like to happen in your life. Well the universe always listens and I hope it has been positive and empowering because you get what you believe.  Now is the time to focus strongly, speak it, write it, feel it passionately. Do it!

 

I know someone who feels this could be the time for healing from a long-term challenging health issue, another who has just made a decision to prepare her path ahead to eventually leave a relationship that has been loveless from the start, as well as demeaning; ready to leap, opening to her personal power to make way for potential joys. Another person is going to fulfill a lifetime dream that takes great endurance. These are not just changing a hairstyle or moving to a new apartment episodes.

 

Work it, work it, work it. Keep negative thoughts at bay always, but especially now. The cornerstones are shifting and you will have a new view. Don’t be sidetracked by any other change you hear about; it’s all about YOU.

Thank goodness our past has passed down some days that we look upon as sacred and holy. During this time of year we are given Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve and Day.

 

We can all look upon Hanukkah as spiritual proof of miracles. In taking back their temple, Jewish people wanted to re-sanctify it to God, with oil for 8 nights, to clear others’ use for worship of people and idols. There was only enough oil for one night, yet it miraculously lasted the eight nights. We can all notice the miracles that occur daily in our lives.

 

Thanksgiving gives us a date to feel grateful for what we have, including people who care, and whom we care about. We can also count our blessings all the time; no date needed.

 

Christmas reminds us of one (of many) spiritual icons who showed a way to live miraculously with nonjudgmental love. Though it’s not really Jesus’ (the Jewish man’s) birthday, but chosen as a date of remembrance, it reminds us of christ consciousness; not his last name, of course, but the word for the quality of higher, spiritually enlightened ways of seeing everything and everyone. 

 

Worship no idols before God; neither man nor statue. Even Jesus said we can do greater things than he. We’re all God sourced of that mysterious, unconditionally loving, all-knowing, all-forgiving miraculous divine energy that we are created from. Most of us have people show us beautiful ways of living through love and integrity, and often idolize them, maybe worship them, but let’s remember the one source from which we can all show the way.

 

Each of us has a personal connection. When you trust that, you will hear and see your own divine guidance, and your life’s moments become joyful and miraculous. Are you afraid of a personal connection because you aren’t perfect, therefore afraid of punishments? Watch how you can learn and evolve from imperfections, forgive yourself and others, and rise in the comfort of spiritual grace. But you won’t know unless you try.

 

Would Miraculous Divine Spirit lead wars against others’ ways to strive to know God? Lead you into hate and prejudice? No, that was human man’s choice. But we can grow from seeing the light and make different choices. The current Popes opened minds through asking for forgiveness in previous religious decisions, showing faith by riding without a bullet-proof popemobile, and announcing unconditional love and acceptance to those created with attraction to the same sex, etc., etc.!

 

Kwanzaa celebrates the sacredness of family, community and culture. Any culture’s fractured family or community has the hope of rebuilding through understanding, and realizing togetherness comes from acceptance and forgiveness; letting God live through us. There are many other spiritual paths and holidays, yet this time of year we light lights (en-lightenment), give gifts (gifts of love) and make a sincere commitment to amend our ways in the new year.

 

Karen Armstrong, one of the world's foremost religious scholars, author, prestigious TEDPrize winner, and former Catholic nun, tells us she only found a personal connection with God after leaving the nunnery disillusioned.

 

Continuing to research the world’s religions she found one common thread, and that is compassion. Not doing to others what you wouldn’t want done to you; i.e. the golden rule. That wisdom actually sprang from Confucius, who lived 500 years before Jesus.

 

She likes the Hebrew tradition of inviting us to always question, versus being instructed to accept what we are told as the only way, (this way or the highway/hell. She noted that man-made religions give people the false belief that only they are right, and others’ beliefs threaten their ego’s strong desire for that claim on rightness.

 

But ask yourself, would you rather think only your group is right and exclusive of God’s approval, or embrace truth that we are all innately beings of compassion, and get to enjoy the expanded love of inclusiveness, meant by God?

 

Won’t that create the world you want to see? Isn’t that your dream; abounding love everywhere? Is it not who wins or loses, but how you play the ‘game’ (of life)? Would you rather think you’re right or be happy?

 

Will it take a disaster to experience a ‘different’ person save you, with their inborn unconditional compassion, to feel love for them?  Is a ‘force’ of nature required to wake us up?

 

Even governments lay down laws that are unfair to the people living under its man-made rules. Mandela felt deeply every person has rights to choose. In God’s vast regime, every person has rights. All you need do is set yourself free from the prison your heart has been in; let it breathe deeply in God’s natural laws.

 

The small ‘wars’ between us become the massive wars of collective consciousness! Really, is that God personally speaking with you, or do you listen instead to your own voice, based on what you were told to believe by someone telling you what is right and wrong.

 

Religiously too many people follow man-made rules with the threat of supposed hell… laws given you by a human being who studied what another human being wrote was law, passed down, (just like the child’s game telephone), by other innocent people trying to remember what they were told? 

 

Have you questioned when religious laws were actually written, who actually wrote them, transcribed them, why some books were burned, etc.. You don’t have to ask; you can simply create your personal relationship and listen to your higher love love you in truth.

 

WWJD, WWMD, WWCD, WWBD? Go straight to the higher up, to the ‘top.’ How about truly WWGD. Access your personal connection without limited access or filters, or other human beings’ agendas, and you will be someone who hears and shows the inspired way, too.

 

Does it make heart and soul sense to keep believing it is spiritual to shun others or attempt to lower their status in living life, for not being a particular religion, or gender, or race, or culture, or persuasion, etc., when all religions basically point to treating the other how you would want to be treated? It can be that simple. What if you were emotionally abused and abandoned for being heterosexual? Could you change to make life easier to live? 

 

The devil doesn’t make us do ‘it.’ The devil isn’t ‘in’ people. We just refuse to think about things in a conscious, evolved way, and won’t take personal responsibility for examining and healing our own wounds that lead to ‘devilish’ actions in hurting others. Is it easier to believe in a Satan than walk/think in the others’ shoes?

 

Giving the finger or calling names is just common behavior, right? Does it make us feel right and in with the in crowd, who do those habitual things? Walking the path of basic spiritual compassion for all others can single us out, but would you rather have a friend or more walking beside you in enlightenment, than be held up on the shoulders of a crowd whose behavior is crude and barbaric to others?

 

Certainly if someone is toxic and cruel to you repeatedly and you’ve extended a nonjudgmental hand as you could, the wise reaction is to keep boundaries around your own spirit, while still seeing them as God’s child and wishing for the best always, knowing God is with them too, not counting perceived wrongs, just loving them, from afar, as one who is on a different path and time frame.

 

That is prayer. Hate is prayer too, so observe your thoughts.  Don’t take everything personally.

 

A life unexamined is not worth living. Let’s take responsibility for everything in our life. Everyone without exception thrives on love. When treated poorly over and over they can become depleted, miserable, ill, and lash out. When we are happy with a filled heart we can still even take things for granted. Count your presents even outside of holy days time.

 

If we all expect someone else to make the world better, who’s going to do it? The small effort by each one influences others, is many, and becomes the big effort, thereby, the big change.

 

It’s never too late to see the light and say I realize I’ve done or said some things that now I have more awareness of.  I’m still growing and working on myself. I apologize. 

 


Be careful of saying I AM sorry because the great I AM presence in us all, moves and shapes what we say I AM about. You are not a sorry person, you are perfect in your own path of growth. Remember not to hurt your own feelings!

 

I AM made of the only substance there is, the all, God source. I AM everything God is. I AM the child, son or daughter, of God (so is every soul). I AM loving (everyone is capable of actng so; it just takes action), I AM love (that is your inherent inheritance), I AM loved (God always loves you).

 

I AM healthy (define your natural state, which is at ease with all; it is the opposite of dis-ease). I AM abundant (do you even realize how much you really have, from the comb and brush to a good friend). I AM miraculous (you’ll notice it when you know it’s true). I AM joy and peace (the natural state of God which is within you).

 

Joy to the world. Peace on earth. Let’s joyfully, peacefully take personal responsibility being compassionate for the other, thereby, co-creating the global experience we all envision. Happy Miraculous Holy Days.

When you took your first breath, it was like musical chairs. There is a divine language that continually speaks in each moment. You are the creation of a moment. Where was every heavenly body when the music stopped and you were born! If you are a Virgo, the Sun was in the Virgo section. But the Sun sign hardly describes you. Your personal birth, natal astrology chart, is more complex than just the Sun.

Mercury tells us how you think and communicate, Venus how you love and the type of romantic partner you attract, as well as what your desires are; Mars pinpoints the type of energy level you will have, what motivates you, and the type of intimate partner who will show up. The rest of the planets tell more of your personal story, and the houses reveal the background scenes where action will take place, etc.

You were born with the Moon in a particular zodiac sign. And every two and a half years your Moon sign changes as it glides into the next sign beside it. Your birth Moon sign brings back, from past life, the unfinished emotional business you came here to work through.

The Moon sign also rules your emotional instincts, first responses to situations and depending on what sign it moves into, what you will be emotionally invested in for each two and a half years. If you know when it will change it’s easy to notice the ‘mood swing.’

It’s not a bad thing. Not at all. It’s simply a change of traits and characteristics that will take you on a different path. If Moon’s in Capricorn you could be career focused, perhaps enjoying putting in lots of work time, etc.

That’s not to say that your other birth planets don’t change like the Moon. They do too. Just not as often. This is called progressed astrology. When you go to an astrologer they will see who you created yourself to be, and who you are now! Your birth planets are like your skin and bones; the basic skeleton you created; the blueprint of your home.

But we make changes to the house; we buy new furniture, fix leaks, put on a new roof or coat of paint, make an addition...  Any change changes the basic blueprint. We may alternatively go in a destructive way for a while, bashing holes into the walls or not cleaning or organizing. Bugs may infest.

We may eventually realize we don’t like basking in dirt and hire someone or a crew to help clean and rebuild our home/self. No judgment. Just free will choices that ultimately, this life or next, feel so uncomfortable that we do rise like the phoenix out of the ashes, better. So eventually it all leads to evolving, on different time schedules.

This changeable home we call You (and me) can be looked at as destiny. The planets will move; we cannot change their path through the zodiac, nor can we alter the timing of those changes. You don’t have a choice but to surrender to them. Most of you may not even be aware of the changing structures in your life by way of your birth planets progressing into new zodiac signs and traits.

Your free will comes in when you have choices to make about how to use the playing fields you get; go to sleep (go unconscious) and surrender to any type of person that may or may not have your best interests at heart, strive too hard for money and fame, forgetting that a balance is required for the health of your structure, sacrifice enough sleep, whole food, integrity, not listening to God inspire and raise you through intuitive guidance; resisting being unconditionally loving to all, and you get the picture.

Free will is the choice to paint the room green, beige, blue or black. Did you choose lacy window coverings, top-down bottom-up shades, or black out curtains? The choices chosen will bring a certain type of effect to your life and actions.

If a planet’s move indicates, for instance, a potential change in career, do you take the job offer in a bank you know will be boring and too conservative for you, but is much more money, or choose to take the creative job that will utilize your imagination and bring more fun, but a much lower starting salary? If you follow your heart, the money will follow, as it did with me decades ago.

Recognizing my talents in the creative field I chose, the raises came quickly; one after another, to more than the bank job salary, and I was given my own office overlooking the Bay, in San Francisco. I made the same leap years ago, deciding to relocate to Sedona. Following my knowing, that… I left my heart, in sweet Sedona. High on a hill, it called to me.

Know that your wish/intense thought becomes your command, as you are co-creator with God. You have free will to leap, or cower with lead feet. It may be in the stars, but the stars and planets give you options from the traits and characteristics they rule, plus options from the traits ruled by the zodiac sign they are in. Your free will choices just follow the natural law of attraction, as in the famous book, Think and Grow Rich…or do the thoughts you think/believe over and over, keep you from being rich?

What have you been attracting? Surrender to your best life and take that leap of faith. I’m not talking about a fingers crossed hope, but intense faith. There is a distinct difference. What do you believe about God?

Come to believe God is only good, loving, abundant, healthy, with good reasons for everything, divine and miraculous. Practice allowing God’s traits to live through you, and…Practice surrendering to God in small steps. Notice nature’s responses, and as you see more and more that you can trust, then you’ve entered the land of sweet surrender and bliss.
