To have a different experience of the life you have you must have a different experience of who you are...
Think about this for just a minute: how many people including yourself, do you know in your life that is in a place where they are not happy? They're not happy with their relationships. They're not happy with their careers. They're not happy with their health. They are not happy with their wealth or lack of it. Any of the above circumstances. Many of these people, maybe even you, talk about how they want to change these areas of their lives. They talk about how where they are is not where they want to be. They talk about how if they could only get out of their current situation they then would be happy and be living the life they think they are meant to be living.
This is the perfect place to start in our lives to begin the incredible miraculous and even magical process of change and manifestation. This is the beginning of the beginning. This is when you look at what you don't want so you know what you do want.
If this need for change is great enough, then people will start to take certain actions and start to change their mind about their current circumstances so they can reach the circumstances that they dream of. They will read books. They will search out a coach or a trainer. They will begin the process of manifesting that new change in their life.
Of course I've seen this many times with many people over and over in my work. People that are ready for the change. People that want all of these things and yet what I have found is that many people are not willing to have a different experience of themselves.
What I mean by this is that in order for us to have a different experience of our life and our circumstances, we need to have a different experience of ourselves first. This is crucial in the manifestation process.
Think about this: there is a young mail clerk in a big corporation. He wants to be the head of the corporation. He wants to earn the money. He wants to have the life. He wants to have the influence. He knows this and keeps working as himself hoping and wishing that someday he will make it to the top. He keeps wishing day in and day out that this would happen, yet he still believes that he is the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still sees himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still feels himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. And eventually guess what happens? For many of the mailroom clerks of the world they might rise one or two levels, but they never get the top. They get to the end of their life and think "I wish I could have gotten there..."
The reason that the mailroom clerks of the world so rarely make it to the top, is because they are looking at everything from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are acting from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are thinking from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are doing from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. You get my point. What they haven't done is to have a different experience of themselves other then the mailroom clerk. They haven't activated their imagination. They haven't spent time energy and focus seeing , believing and knowing that there is a small part of them within themselves that has all the goals and desires that they dream of.
You see, in order to have a different experience, you have to experience your self differently. As soon as we experience ourselves differently everything in the universe is set up to start to bring those kinds of experiences, opportunities and goals into your vibration. I can guarantee you, if you are not spending time seeing yourself as that person who has the things and the experiences of life that you now only dream of, the likelihood of it manifesting in your life is slim to none. On the other hand, if you do spend time doing that, everything will move much faster for you.
I can hear your next question right now. How do we do that? Well, start with these 3 steps...
1. Know and take stock at the deepest level of who you are, that you are creating everything in your life. This comes back to basic universal principle. Everything you're experiencing in your life is because you are living it internally on a vibrational level. Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life.
Realize that what you are experiencing right now is what you you have created from the past. The you you are experiencing right now is your projection of your past ideas of who you thought you were. This can be tough if you are in a place that doesn't feel good in some area of your life. But, it is vital that you accept this truth. There is something within you vibrationally that has created who you are right now.
2. Change your concept of yourself. What I mean by that is start to look at what you believe about yourself that is not serving you. Look at what you are telling yourself about your life and about life in general that is not serving you to live a life of wonder, success and love. As you start to do this, you will begin to realize that the part of you that you're experiencing right now as your self, is very small. The possibilities of who you can become are far greater then the small ideas of what you are right now.
3. Be open and willing to change. Be open to the thought that your beliefs of who you are are the springboard to who you want to be. Take the magical leap off that springboard into who you want to be or what circumstance you want to create in your life. Literally feel it. Literally see it. Do this on a daily basis, and you will begin to change your concept of who you are.
When you do or accept these 3 things, your concept of who you are will start to match who you want to be and/or what you want to experience.
Know that your imagination is one of the most powerful tools that you could ever have in your life. Honor your imagination. Treasure your imagination. Use your imagination to serve yourself and serve the world in a much more effective, purposeful and creative way.
Remember everything starts with you. When you change your idea about yourself and consistently focus on who you want to be instead of your current circumstances, everything will fall in line. I know you can do it!
What you are experiencing in your life right now is a reflection of the thoughts that you had previously two now.
This is the basis of creation. This is the basis of making your life in line with the divine flow. As we really gets the fact that we are co-creating with the universe at all times, we understand and more importantly, activate this divine law.
If what you are experiencing in the moment is something that you do not want, it is just a reflection that you had a vibration that is manifesting itself in the present moment. If it is any area of our lives including financial, relationships, career or your overall experience of your life you had to have a matching vibration to get that result in the present moment. I realize that this can be a daunting and tough lesson to get, but when you do it is your ticket to freedom. In fact, it is not just your ticket to freedom but your ticket to peace, joy, love and creation.
It is through much trial and error that eventually we all get to understand and see the power of this concept. It is up to you to embrace this concept now and start to be a true cocreator with the divine flow so that you can escape your suffering forever. As the Buddha says, "suffering comes from life not being what you wanted to be." On the deepest metaphysical level we are suffering because we're sending out a vibration of what we think we wanted to be. Now, this is not to say that we want tragedy or financial struggle or anything that feels in conflict. What it is saying is that allow life to be what it is and then make a new decision to create something that you do want and that feels fantastic!
One of the first ways to do this is to take responsibility that everything in your life is somehow reflecting your vibration. It is then that you can respond in a different way. It is then that you can say "In this moment, I choose joy" This is a consistent practice. It is not a magical solution. But it contains with in it the most powerful tool that we have our ability to choose beyond the insanity of the ego.
The next thing to do, is to ask yourself what it is that I am thinking about and what it is I am focusing on? If there is something you are focusing on that is worrying you or upsetting you, then change your focus. Change what you were looking at. Change your mind and your results will change also. The more you do this on a consistent basis, the more the results will show more piece, more joy, more love and results that feel fantastic!
So, what are you thinking NOW?
As you may know I recently have Relocated to California. The reason that I re located was that my dad who is 75 years old needs a little help. I know that some people that are reading this may be able to relate to a parent that needs our help. Luckily as you know, I have a life and a business where I can relocate or be in other places and still run my business. I know all too well that many people would have a harder time doing what I'm doing logistically. I am in the process of creating a life where I can be based here and help my dad, while I am able to fly across the country or around the world for a few days at a time and do some work and come back and still be there to help my dad with whatever he might need.
Since I still have many connections in New York City, I planned to go back there every few weeks do some work and return back to California. This week was one of those weeks. I planned. I made appointments. I was asked to speak at a conference. I would make new contacts for my business and I would make money for my bank account. Everything was perfect! All of these fit perfectly into the schedule where I could be gone for four days and my dad would be fine.
Well… Last week, my dad started to feel sick. My dad started to lose energy. I got suspicious that something was up. Finally two days before I was meant to leave to go to New York City we went to the emergency room. As I suspected he had an internal bleed from an ulcer in his stomach.
As it turns out, this all came at the exact time when I was meant to leave. Even though I knew why I came here in the first place was to be there for my dad, my "plans" may need to change.
At first, I was hoping that this would be a very quick thing. If it wasn't, I could rearrange things, people and places to make sure that my dad was okay. From there I was just like Jacob from the Bible wrestling with the angel. My ego went crazy. My ego wanted to make everything right. My ego wanted to have its cake and eat it too. My ego kept focusing on the money I would lose. My ego was focusing on the business opportunities that I would not have. My ego kept saying "You can work it out". My ego was telling me about all the people I would let down if I didn't go. My ego was telling me how I would be an inconvenience for canceling all the appointments and meetings that I had set up...
But, as is always the case when life happens and change comes into our life, my spirit knew... My spirit was saying "you know what will make you feel good". My spirit was saying "do what makes you feel good." And then it hit me with the biggest affront to the ego:"Do the RIGHT thing..." Uggggh...
If we are to walk a true mystical path, it is times like these when we are asked to ask ourselves this question: "Would you rather be right or would you rather be peaceful?" This is called wrestling with the angels and this is the story of our lives in many ways. How many times in our lives, do we have everything so well arranged, so well-planned, everything is "right" on a very superficial level, and then life happens?
Wanting to be right most of the time comes from the ego. Wanting to be peaceful and connected to the divine source comes from our spirit. If we continue to always choose to be peaceful then our lives have a flow and a peace and joy that is beyond what our ego can ever imagine. On the other hand continually choosing to always be right will get you well…
So back to my story, I kept on wrestling until I projected myself on the plane and flying to NYC. I asked myself what would that be like, even if I arranged everything for my Dad before I left? As I did that I got the immediate answer. "The "right" choice is the peaceful choice" Aha! A great sense of peace and knowing that everything is in Divine order washed over me. The angel had won the wrestling match. I began making calls to cancel and was met with love and support all the way around. The gifts from that choice are far greater than a few dollars or business contacts. Ahhh PEACE...
One of the most amazing things about spirit and walking a mystical path is that no matter how hard making the choice for peace may be, it will always reveal to us, that it is the real "right" answer. What is so incredible is how the ego will convince us if we do the peaceful thing, it will not be the right thing. The ego will tell us that we have to forsake or sacrifice one for the other. This is not the case.
Happy to say, my Dad is doing much better and I sit here writing at the same time my flight is leaving for NYC. Instead I'm getting ready to go spend valuable and precious time with my Dad.
As you go through your personal angel wrestlings remember that if you allow the angel in yourself to win the match, you can have peace AND do the right thing.
The Universe or Source is always giving us clues to what will make us happy. One of those clues is people in the media who inspire us. When I say media, I mean writers, actors, philosophers, political figures and the like.
There is something very profound about the people who inspire us. First of all, they can remind us of our highest values. They also can give us incredible information as to which direction to move in in certain times in our life.
You see, the ego self will always tell us that those people are "special". Those people are in some way better than you are. Those people got where they got because they are different then you. Well, that is a lie. That is something that we set up in our own minds because we have deserve-ability or worthiness issues which come from our fearful ego. I am here to tell you that all of those people that you admire and who inspire you, have the same blood flowing through their veins as you do. Those people have the same capacity for creativity, intelligence, love, compassion and success that you do.
In my opinion, I believe it is extremely valuable for you to actually meet in person the people who inspire you. If there is any way possible, (and all things are possible) for you to meet one or all of the people who inspire you, I greatly encourage you to do it.
What this will do for your believability that you can be where they are is immeasurable. I know that I have since I was very young sought out and met many of the people who have inspired me. What this is done for me, is that it has shown me that no matter how high of a pedestal they seem to be on, they are actually no different than myself. They have made choices and worked in a different way, yes, but it proves to me that I can be just as successful and give to the world in the ways that they do.. and more. It makes me know that my dreams are possible. When you know that your dreams are possible, then the floodgate to your manifesting them is exponentially increased. I am all about getting the odds of our success, joy and peace in our favor in any way we can!
If you have been following me for any length of time, you know that I have a few people that inspire me for many different reasons. You also know that I do reach out and meet these people. Today I encourage you to think about the people who inspire you, and if they are still alive do whatever you can to meet them. I know it might seem like an impossible task with some of these people who inspire you, but you can meet them…
For example, this past week I got to meet a woman who I've admired, followed and been deeply inspired by for many years. She touched my heart with her writing and her life. There is no other way to put it, except that I felt like I "knew" her from the moment I attracted her into my life.
Her name is Carol Drinkwater. And being from England and living in France, you may think it would be impossible for me to meet her. Also, the fact that she is well-known, may have put barriers in my way of ever meeting her. But I've had her in my vibration for very long, and because I have been focusing on her for so long, the opportunity came up that she was in Los Angeles giving a talk and I got to meet her. Yayy!
Not only did I get to meet her, but I asked her if she would be on my radio show and she agreed. How does it get any better than that?
So, today my interview with the amazingly inspirational Carol Drinkwater will be aired on my show "The Magic of Life".
I know that what Carol has to teach about life and passion will ignite your soul and inspire you too!
The show will air LIVE

One of the things that is the most important on our journey in life, is to discover and follow what we are passionate about. I know that you probably have heard that many times in your life. But, it is one of the things that helps us immensely to create positive results in our lives.
Most of the time in life we put our passion or what makes our heart sing on the back burner. We put the things that we love to the side because we think we're supposed to live a "real" life and that our "real" life is in direct opposition to what our heart is telling us is our passion.
I believe each and every one of us comes here to this planet in this space and time to share their passions. Everyone has very different passions. Everyone has a different song that makes their heart sing. Everyone has things within them that brings them joy, peace and helps the world in some way.
I see it like this, there is a light with in you that is like a very tiny firework. This light that is with in you needs to be lit and it needs to be nurtured and cared for until it starts to get bigger and bigger and explodes like a beautiful firework spreading it's Joy and passion for all the world to see. When that happens the world can benefit from your tiny spark that became a firework. To deny that passion or firework within you and not let it come out for the world to see and benefit from is, is not living the life you came here to live. To deny it is a form of repression which on many levels can manifest in our lives as things like anger, depression or just producing negative results in your life over and overl. But on the other hand, to discover or know your passion and express it in the world brings great joy, great peace, great love and positive results in many areas of your life.
The more you feed your passion the brighter that light within you becomes. The more you give attention, energy and focus to that thing that is passionate within you, the firework starts to burst forth. It has to because you are giving it attention and when you give your passion attention it feels so good that you want to keep doing it more and more. Yay!!
Now, you may already be sharing your passions with the world, or you know what your passions are and not taking action on them or sharing them in the world. For others you're not exactly sure what your passions are. And for those people I would say you definitely know what your passions are. You know what they are because it comes from a place with in you that says "yes" that feels good!
To discover what your passions are I want to give you three questions that will give you hints towards what your passions are. Right now please get a pen and some paper to write down the answers to these three questions.
1. What really stirs your soul?
(This can be anything that makes you feel fantastic, moved, amazing or emotional. I want tell you it doesn't have to have anything to do with work. In fact as you go through these questions let go of the idea of work)
2. What is the thing that you can do all day long, feel amazing about, never get tired when you're doing it and it gives you a sense of amazing satisfaction?
3. When you go into a bookstore what is the section that you always go to over and over again?
Answering these three questions about yourself very honestly will give you the clues to what your passions are. You may have confirmation about what you felt already inside. Or you may have discoveries about yourself from doing these questions. Either way, what's important for you now that you have an idea or pinpointed your passions, is that you take some small actions towards them. Do some of the things that you may have been denying yourself that have to do with your passions. This will start to raise your vibration and when you're vibration raises you will get more positive results in your life.
As that happens more and more your tiny flame will be a huge firework that is a gift for all of the world. It's time to light your fire! Cause baby you're a FIREWORK!!!
