If you ask yourself the percentage of your day that is spent doing things things are feeling peace, you'll probably have a very low number. There was no way to attract all of these things and experiences that you believe will make you feel good and peaceful if you don't feel it in the present moment. By understanding that the more that you populate your life and daily existence with things that make you feel good the more you will attract things that make you feel good. This is an important foundational lesson if you are to live the life that you really dream.

There are a few days that bring much of the population of the earth focusing on a single thing. Of course it's impossible with the diversity of the world for everyone to focus on one thing at one time (especially with all the channels on cable TV!) But there are still a few events and days such as this. Christmas, of course comes to mind, New Year's Eve, certain sporting events and also, in the world of entertainment the night of the Academy Awards. You may not know this, but as a young person I did lots of acting and theatre. Theatre and acting was and still is a passion for me. Being a trained actor, I always watch the Academy Awards every year to see which actors and films have been honored for their work.
I believe the people who we honor as stars, have taken the idea of becoming someone who is starring in their own life very seriously. And it is precisely because they have taken that seriously that we in turn see them as stars. Because they see themselves as stars…
Now, of course we know of the stories of actors and actresses who have not led the healthiest of lives. That is not what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about how they see themselves and because of that, what has manifested in their lives. The point is they see the star in themselves. They have that belief about themselves. They sense the unique and beautiful qualities that only they possess. They see this first and then they allow their star to shine. Then we see it too…
How much are you embracing your inner Star?
How much are you starring in your own life?
Are you waiting for the curtain to go up, so you can finally step into the light?
Are you rehearsing for the time when you REALLY need to shine?
Is fear holding you back from being the star of your life?
Do you have a block against shining your light in the world?
Do you believe that the people who shine are self-centered or selfish?
Well, I am here to remind you that the movie of your life started the day you came here. The film crew is always filming. The most incredible thing is that you are not only the star of your own movie. But you are the director, the casting agent and most powerfully…you are the writer.
If you don't like the role that you've written for yourself so far in life, rewrite it and change your role.
If you don't like the cast of characters you have hired to be in your life, change the cast and audition new ones.
If you don't like that your life has become a drama and you thought that it would be more of a romantic comedy, rewrite your story…
There is no time to waste in living the life your heart yearns to live. The movie has already started, but you can always create the most incredible and exciting of plot twists you choose from here on out!
In my training as an actor I was taught that “There are no small parts, only small actors” which means that whatever role you are playing, you are meant to look at that role as being the star of the play. I was taught to look at it like all the elements of the story and the relationships revolve around the character that you are cast as. When an actor does that, they bring a depth and uniqueness to the character, a character which could have meant nothing at all in the scheme of the play as a whole, but suddenly is noticed and stands out to the audience. As opposed to the actor saying “Well this is just a five lines and it’s not the starring role” then the actor just walks through the part and no one even remembers them.
You have cast yourself in your life as a certain role. You can either cast yourself as an important and vital role of the whole film of your life, or you can cast yourself as a minor walk on character. Your choice…
The time is now to step out into the light and be the STAR you came here to be.
If you start now, by next year you may hear “...and the winner is…YOU!”
Say YES if you will begin STARRING in your life today! XXX

I went to Waikiki and had an amazing realization that all my dreams are coming true! Your can too...
When it comes to the law of attraction, many of us get
confused. Many of us believe that the law of attraction is about attracting things. While getting very clear and attracting the things that we want is important, what we really need to understand is that it's the feelings behind the things that is the most important.
You see inside of all of us we have a very specific & highly individualized guidance system. That guidance system is based on our feelings. Our feelings will always tell us what feels good for us. What feels good for us will be our own specific things, places or experiences. Those things, places, or experiences are not necessarily what someone else would feel good having.
For example, as many of you know I have a few things that make me feel joy or make me feel really good. Like, for some reason Marie Osmond brings me joy!
Now, I know I may be in a minority of people that feel joy from Marie Osmond. But I LOVE her! I have loved her since I was a little boy and I still am moved by her and her energy and spirit. Other people will not understand this connection I have with Marie, but that is none of my business. My business is to connect with my joy inwhatever form that takes. As soon as I identify what brings me joy, I take action on in the world. I watch Marie videos, I follow her Twitter, I listen to her music and whatever makes me feel good. Once I do that and follow this internal guidance system
that I have within me then more things that bring me joy come into my life.
This is what I teach my students: that knowing what brings you joy is the most
important thing on your path in life. Once you know what brings you joy, you
can then take small action steps towards experiencing more of that thing.
I want you to hear this very clearly: it is not always about the big things
that we want in life, it is about consistently going for those little or maybe
silly things that bring you joy that will change your life. Like me following
my internal guidance with Marie Osmond, has brought many many more joyous
things than just the experience of Marie Osmond.
When we do this over and over and over again in our lives in any area of our
lives, we begin to shift our point of attraction. And then our point of
attraction becomes all the things that bring us joy and make us feel good. When
we are doing this consistently the law of attraction brings as more of those
things and even things we didn't even know brought us joy, because that's what
it's responding to. Once that happens then you're living in the flow of life.
So, whenever you decide to attract something that you think that you want, make
sure that you connect with the feelings of that thing and the basis of that
And indulge yourself in the small and maybe silly things that bring you joy.
Who or what is your Marie Osmond?
Newsflash: all the things that are not working in your life, are the things that are going to bring you to the most peace and the most joy and the most love possibly the most success. Now, this seems contradictory to what you may believe or definitely what you want to do. But, I want you to start to think about all the things that are not working or that feel really bad in your life. Common wisdom may say not to look at those things and just keep looking towards what you want to create in your life, in any area of your life. Common wisdom will say if you keep your "Eye on the prize" you will achieve it. And in some ways that is true. Having a clear vision of what you want in any area of your life that will bring you the most joy the most peace or the most success is vitally important. But, what most of us don't realize is that looking at what's not working will get you more clear about where you are going.
It is very common in the self-help and new thought community, to stay positive and only look at what's working. This philosophy encourages walking through the world with a rose-colored glasses on. We know that walking through the world with rose-colored glasses on is not the best way to your goals or your success or your peace. It only encourages the things that you're not looking at come back at some point and slap you in the face. That is why only staying "positive" will only get you so far. The reason that It will only get you so far, is because life will always bring up challenges or things you don't want. That is the nature of living in this three dimensional world. If you ignore or push against those things that you don't like or make you feel bad, you are not really living life. The things that aren't working or that seem to be your problems actually are the things that will help you to get more clear about what you do want and if you stick with it eventually your success.
"How is that?" you say. "How can I look at what's not working, and still be positive?" And here is the answer: by looking at what you don't want or what makes you feel bad very briefly. If you can look at what's not working in your life briefly and constructively it will give you all the clues of what you do want and it will bring you into the vibration of what you do want so you can let go of the negative vibration of the problem. Once again, the keyword here is to look at those things "briefly".
. The most important thing is that you be honest with yourself and see that they're not working and to take those things as a guide post to help you to get more clear about what you do want. Those things you don't want are not problems. They are guideposts which are helping you in every way. If you can start to do this, you will end up being more positive. I guarantee it. Because when you face the things that aren't working and shift them being a block for you, they will become your point of freedom.
If you are new to this way of thinking and being, it will take practice. It will take some diligence on your part to remind yourself that the problem that you have ascribed as a problem, is only there to help you to get to where you really do want.
You might say that this is the basis of making lemonade out of lemons. Let's face it, if you don't even see that there are lemons there you can never make lemonade, right? Think about it, if there were a ton of lemons in front of your door blocking you to get out, and you knew that behind that door was everything that you needed for your life, you would look at those lemons and quickly figure out a way to cut them up, make them smaller and shift them so that you could get out the door, right? You wouldn't, on the other hand sit there and stare at the pile of lemons and fret and wonder and keep looking at them over and over and over again. Your survival instinct would kick in and realize you need to look at these lemons very briefly and shift them so you could get out the door!
This philosophy has been around for a very long time. It is nothing new. But, very few people are in the practice of being able to do this. I want you to be able to do this moment to moment and day today in your life... all the time.
I have all the faith in you, that you will be able to open up a very successful lemonade stand very soon! From then on life will be a bowl of cherries… Or lemons… Haha!
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! I have to admit that I am a little bit of a royal groupie. So, for me I followed the princes birth, but not as excessively as some people have. I know there are some people that would rather not hear anything at all about the royal family. I respect that and know that to many Buckingham palace amounts to the be British version of Hollywood and "why should we care so much ? " It's funny, I even got a couple of semi-nasty posts on Facebook for announcing that Prince George was born! Maybe since we left England in the first place some Americans will always have that feeling against Britain and the monarchy. Bless them!
I for one do not have that same sentiment. In fact I think that if we will have a healthy perspective we can look at this modern monarchy and see how it has adapted and changed to the times that we are living in. I believe that this modern monarchy gives us a beacon of Grace, hope and contribution to the world.
But, I might not think that if it weren't for one woman. Princess Diana changed everything. When I look at William and Kate and of course now Prince George all I can think of is Our beloved Princess Diana.
I have, and still have a great respect, admiration and love for Princess Diana. She walked through the world with grace, compassion and love. I know that she of course was not a perfect human being, Who of us is? And who of us could possibly be in the situation that she chose to be in and not be perfect all the time?
What stands out for me and for so many others like me is that she was a shining light who represents what we could be at our utmost. She was a woman who was guided by her compassion. She was a woman who was guided by her inner strength. She was a woman who was guided by being the best Diana that she could be. From the best kindergarten teacher to the best princess.
There are many lessons that Diana left us. Today I want to focus on her lesson of contribution to the world around her. From her being the very first Royal that would help, let alone be in contact with people with AIDS at the time to her work on land mines, Diana was the example of being there for the people. That is exactly why she ended up having the label "the People's Princess".
As we look at her, many of us might think, "well of course she can do that She's a princess and has tons of money and Nannys and a staff of people to help her to do all of these things that she could do" And yes that is true, but she could've taken all of the luxuries that she had and not done what she did for people. She could have been a different kind of Royal and not reached out nearly as much as she did. The fact is she chose to do this, because she felt the responsibility of being shining light for others.
As you look at her and her example, I'd like you to think how can you contribute to making others lives better today? At our source, beyond the body, beyond our thoughts, in fact beyond everything that we can imagine, we are all connected. Because of that, there really is only one of us here and we are all part of that great amazing force of life. We are not our bodies. We are the amazing energy that flows between the atoms, cells, molecules and particles. There is no place where I started and you end. Because of this fact, every time that we choose to contribute, reach out or help another, we are contributing to the whole. When we give to another we give to ourselves. When we contribute our energy, time or anything to those who may need something, we confirm and are reminded that there is no sacrifice in the world. What we give we get. What we contribute will always come around because of the fact that our brothers and sisters are actually us...
So today and this week, every time that you see or hear about Prince George, remember the contributions that his grandmother made to the world. The contributions that had a ripple effect that affected millions of people with love, respect and support. And remember that since there is only one of us here there is no difference between you and Princess Diana.
You can choose today to be a shining light for those in your life and community. Then, when you make your transition into the great beautiful light, others will look at you just as fondly and as beautifully as many of us now look at our beloved Princess Diana.
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?
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!!!
