this moment called now~

morning light - Copy

Anticipation of the future creates tension in your body and mind.

It pulls us from being present and seeing what is happening and dilutes the quality and intensity of life.

Of course we can use our imagination to inform and create our reality and lives – it’s what we do any way, isn’t it?  But why not just let this moment be enough?

This moment in which you are in is enough.

It is sufficient.  You are sufficient.

There is no great need that needs filling immediately this very moment.

The future will take care of itself if you take care of yourself right now.

Trust in your ability and power to choose in the moment as events arise and unfold.

Trust in your ability to allow things to come into your life and practice acceptance.

Trust in your ability to go in any direction you choose.

Trust in your ability to respond to respond effectively rather than react to things in this world.

As there is no ‘greater’ source or power than what lies deep within you.

You were not created as a lesser being and there is no lesser being in all of existence.

A homeless person or a president of a country or a billionaire are no better or worse than each other.   They are each simply choosing and experiencing life in their own way.  Nothing is inherently greater or lesser than another.  Observe that.  Religion would say otherwise but that is another topic.

Recognize what is being said here and how it applies to your life.

Just because something is not manifested in this very moment before your eyes doesn’t mean a lick.  Stop playing games thinking the universe has to be a certain way.

moving beyond the influence of your perceptions~

“Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.”

-The Conductor in Polar Express


Life is a dream.

But your perceptions will give you ‘evidence’ otherwise.

How far will you choose to see?

How far will you choose to explore in your life?

How far will you open yourself up?

The thing about limitlessness is that it goes far beyond what is physical.

Perception is an interesting thing.

The exploration is the thing.

‘Azure.  All told a year of water.

Some places with no bottom.

I had hoped to understand it

But it wasn’t possible.  Fish.’

The value of having a mind (for those who haven’t lost theirs)…


sky rays

The value is that you can be conscious.

You can consciously direct your mind and use it as the tool that it is.

You can tell it to go in any direction… of your choosing.

And if that isn’t empowerment then what is?

One example of directing the mind is to give it this idea:

I choose to be more open and see what the universe brings to me.

(And then, of course, to observe what new opportunities that arise and what doors are opened.  And beyond that, to observe the abundance of the universe and your relationship with all things.)

Letting go (of the mind)~

Mantras can be helpful if it is something that is simple and resonates with you.  Something that gives the mind a direction and is a reflection of what your choice is.

I live from my beingness.


I am open to the possibilities of life.


I am love.

They are aids as a starting point for meditation and are also useful before sleep as a direction for the subconscious to explore.  Or they can be used throughout the day as a reminder to connect with where you want to be.  Remember that mantras or affirmations only work when they are a part of the direction you are already choosing.   For instance, using the affirmation

I am a billionaire.

will only create more conflict and disharmony if you still have not examined your (many and hidden) belief systems and psychologies surrounding money and self-worth and are choosing to realize yourself in a new way.   It will do that as at some point your mind will observe (and judge) the stark contrast between your current state and you desire and not see any real bridge between the two.

Feel what the words mean.  Feel how you are creating your life.  Moment by moment.  Brick by brick.   With every choice.  Mantras are a reflection of what you are creating your life to be.

advanced concepts in healing~


It is the mind that needs healing, not your body.

Recognize the body has an innate and inherent ability to be in balance and restore itself to balance if allowed.  It is the mind that interferes and creates imbalance in your life.  And that can easily manifest as illness, physical or otherwise.

Sure when people want to heal from cancer they should obviously eat organic, nutritious foods, go raw more, take larger doses of vitamin C  and drink lots of clean spring water.  Of course they should do things that help to heal like bring oxygen into the body and laugh more.  That goes without saying.  When people get sick it is an opportunity to connect deeper with themselves and explore new, more empowering ways of living.

But recognize it is not the body so much as the mind that needs addressing.

Use the mind to direct the essence of energy that you are to healing your physical, emotional and mental states.  To make shifts into health and ease and a “yes” acceptance of life.

Consciously apply your mind to bring the energy that you are into your life and create shifts.  Give it that direction and choose it.  Choose health and choose You and when your choices reflect that and you are that energy, your body will be in balance.

Allow the energy that you are to express itself in the world.  It just feels good.  

And doing this opens the door to living a very long and happy life, much longer than people are currently living.  It opens the door to new ways of living.

No one really does this but you can be among the first.  And it’s not simply about healing but about creating the life you truly want.
