Notes from Jackie

It’s always amazing to me that when the Universe wants to get the message to you, it’ll keep trying till the message gets through. I had a perfect example of that this past month. In attending  several personal development seminars on manifesting (yes, the teacher is always learning!), I had my feet put to the fire on a personal challenge/opportunity by not one, but two different wisdom leaders. Both told me the very same message in the space of 10 days and the message was: Make a Decision, Commit Yourself, Write Down the Steps You Will Do and Take Action. Stop dithering around and going halfway. Ouch! Pretty clear isn’t it!? Those teachers were just the messengers, but the Universe was the Source.


I know I am not alone in being a “waffle.” What is it you are equivocating on? What decision are you avoiding, what commitment are you not making to yourself and what action aren’t you taking.


Mine is about taking better care of myself. But you might not want to wait till you get tapped on the shoulder a half dozen times—in kind ways and maybe not so kind ways– to Make a Decision, Commit Yourself, Write Down the Steps You Will Do and Take Action. Otherwise, you’ll be hearing from the Universe!



Notes from Jackie


Here’s a new story I love! The Associated Press reported that maybe everything isn’t quite as depressing as everyone thinks! In this “winter of discontent,” Brian Williams got tired of reporting downbeat stories on the NBC Nightly News. So he asked viewers to send in some good news from their community that the network could report. Guess what? In just two days, the network received tens of thousands of submissions. Said Williams: “I’m looking at a stack of printed emails. We have more stories that we could humanly cover if we combined all three network newscasts. It’s hit an unbelievable nerve!”


Now what good news could you be overlooking in your life? And to whom can you spread the good news? Share you good news and let’s start a good news snowball!  


Manifest Message

A release…“Christ in me now frees me from all resentment or attachment toward or from people, places or things of the past or present.  I manifest my true place with the true people and with the true prosperity now.”

from "Open Your Mind to Receive" by Catherine Ponder

Book Review

The Secret of Letting Go by Guy Finley

How often have you obsessed over something, or felt that you were in the grip of emotions that had you in a vice? Guy Finley’s best selling book, The Secret of Letting Go is masterpiece of instruction for those who are ready and willing to let go. The book offers remedies for conquering stress, securing your emotional freedom, clearing away obstacles, living live on your own terms, releasing your inner strength, banishing fears and negativity and dropping self-defeating behaviors. I love the titles of his three major sections: Let Go and Grow Happy, Your True Nature is High and How to Defeat What’s Defeating You. This is a great handbook for anyone wanting to achieve emotional release and freedom.

10 Steps for Attracting Love

Cupid’s Wave: 10 Steps for Attracting Love



Cupids’ Bow. Valentine’s Day is coming soon and we will see hundreds of cards in the store with cherubic Cupid pointing his bow and arrows at his soon-to-be victims, smiting them with love.


But as much as this sweet image has been part of our cultural legacy of a day devoted to finding and celebrating love, it needs an update! Cupid needs to add particle and wave physics to his arsenal! The little guy needs to attract instead of attack!


All that said, you’re probably not waiting around for Cupid to do you any favors. If you are a single person today, you are more likely to be searching for love online ( or, in your social networking organization (Facebook, My Space), at work (where statistics show a high percentage of relationships begin), in school, at your workout gym/yoga studio, or within your special interest group (church/spiritual center, pet rescue, cycling club, cause-related organization, etc). Or maybe you’ve just given up looking, but not given up hope.


Anytime of the year is a good time to be open to finding for a lover/partner/spouse, but with Valentine’s Day upon us, we are reminded that love is possible for any and all of us. However, we need to begin to view the search for love in terms of Conscious Creation and energy…a far more effective and compelling way now that the Law of Attraction and energy management have come to light.


So, how would you go about attracting a soul mate, a true love? Let’s look at ways to apply your skills at Conscious Creation. Here are 10 steps.


  1. Raise Your Personal Frequency

In order to be attractive to a prospective partner you must be vibrating positive, compassionate, appreciative, loving frequencies. If you are vibrating negative waves of energy (desperation, resentment at past lovers, judgment, criticism, self-centeredness, etc) you will drive people away even if your words are sweet. People will sense what is underlying because your body will be radiating that energy. Furthermore, if you raise your frequency, you will become a faster and more effective manifestor, attracting your partner more quickly. 


  1. Become Love to Attract Love

Like energy attracts. If you want to attract love, you must vibrate love—unconditional love. You must be loving in intent, in your heart, in deed, in action, in appearance. Loving energy should permeate your entire being. Get quiet and allow love to become your default energy. 


  1. Love Yourself

If you are constantly self critical (I’m not thin enough, I’m too bald, I wish I was smarter or more glib with the opposite sex, etc.), you are vibrating energies that will repel your prospective lover. Because if you are critical of yourself, you will be critical of him/her. If you accept and love yourself, you have begun the process of accepting your partner for who he or she is. Furthermore, if you dislike yourself or find fault, you are not operating in a state of unconditional love, the love that will draw forth your partner.   


  1. Start Consciously Creating Love

Create a vision of the person you want to bring into your life. Not just what he or she might look like, but what qualities that person has, what interests might you share, what values, how the relationship will feel to you. When you start Consciously Creating, remember that the emotional component is most critical for this is the “express mail to the cosmic post office.” You must feel the emotions of living this beautiful relationship.


  1. Be Specific

It is essential that you be specific in your Conscious Creation about what you desire in your soulmate. My friend Lee is a very handsome, charming, intelligent and successful entertainment entrepreneur, but he had difficulty finding the right woman for him. So he sat down and started writing, getting very specific about what he wanted in a wife. Very soon after that, she walked into his life and they have now been blissfully married more than a dozen years. The Universe can’t bring it forth if you are unspecific or conflicted. It has to have clarity to match the vibrational request.


  1. Make Space in Your Life for Your Lover

Is there room in your life for this lover? Is there enough time in your life? Is there enough “attention bandwith” to make someone feel valued? Is there space in your closets? Create spiritual and energetic space so that the Universe can fill the vacuum with the partner you are seeking. This also applies to releasing old energies relating to past partners. If you hold onto bad memories, anger, resentment, etc, this energy will not allow positive new loving energy to come forth. Dump the garbage and let the Universe fill up your psychic space with the vibrant, loving energy inspired by your relationship with a wonderful new partner. 


  1. Trust the Universe

Have faith that once you start this process, and you have done all the aforementioned steps, that the Universe is at work creating a new reality for you, presenting you with opportunities to connect with possible partners, maneuvering you into situations where the right person may present him or herself. Believe that you will meet your partner and you will…but note that this will be in Divine timing. It may not be on your timetable. So be patient.


  1. Affirmations

Create and restate affirmations that reinforce your belief and readiness for this person’s arrival. Words like this: “I willingly embrace the loving partner who is coming into my life and am creating a safe haven in my life for him/her” or “I am filling myself with abundant and unconditional love so that I may share it with my lover who is now in my life.” It is especially effective to act as if that person has already arrived on your doorstep when creating affirmations. 


  1. Preparing for Love

Take the steps to prepare yourself for love. Be groomed beautifully, even when running errands. Take pride in your appearance. Pamper your body. Work on your fitness. Make your home welcoming. Take classes to enhance your knowledge and wisdom. Practice your charm, kindness and focused attention on others so that you will be accustomed to doing so when your partner arrives.


  1. Raise Your Antenna for Love

Be out in the world. Don’t isolate yourself. Raise your antenna and use your wavelengths of energy to start connecting with people. Put yourself in places where you might meet someone—or meet someone who can introduce you to someone else.  Let your waves go out and bring back your new love…just like a modern wave-wielding Cupid.   

Book Review

The Feminine Heart  by Jenica Ashlie

This is truly one of my favorite books and I have since become a very good friend of the author. Jenica Ashley is an amazing sage who is on a crusade to teach women to retrieve their Feminine Hearts. Women have relinquished their Feminine Heart in the striving to become successful income earners. Reawakening one’s Divine Feminine Heart allows a woman to be truly who she is and the powerful engine for love in her world and THE world. It is through the reawakening of the Feminine Heart that we can create true peace and love globally. One key goal of Jenica’s book is to inspire “A peaceful world where children witness deep love and respect between the sexes.”  This book is chalked full of incredible wisdom. It’s divided into three sections Deep Intimacy: Satisfying our Yearning for Infinite Love, Deep Purpose, Sharing the Gifts fro Our Feminine Hearts and Deep Passion, Offering the Gift of Endless Love. Each section opens with a  beautiful peace of Jenica’s poetry addressed to “My Darling Feminine Heart” and then goes on the illuminate the subject in that chapter. The chapters conclude with Musings and Blessings, offering specific recommendations on ways to allow our authentic love to resurface. This is an inspiring and powerful book for any woman who has felt the need to sacrifice her sacred feminine side. I highly recommend it.

Notes from Jackie:


OK…so the weather may be dismal, you’re struggling a bit financially and you’re buying into the lack mystique that’s permeating the nation, you feel stagnated and you’re giving in to depression. So take a break from the doom and gloom!  It’s not any fun anyway. Here’s what I did over the holidays, I did a re-boot! I took a week (you can do this in a weekend) and reset my mental attitude. I read 13 powerful spiritual books (some were small), and then sat down to meditate and connect to the Universe. Filled with that inspiration, I just decided everything was going to be fun and abundant–and got into that vibration. And most importantly got into the vibration of feeling love coming into me and through me so I could help others. Just sat in those feelings for a couple of hours each day, feeling them welling up inside me and spraying out the top of my head. And guess what? As soon as the New Year arrived, I had a flood of new business calls, lots of new opportunities and a good bit more fun and joy. And I even had standing room only at my speaking session at the Conscious Life Expo here in Los Angeles. (Thanks to those of you who came!)


So if you’re feeling down, time for a re-boot! Don’t wait for spring when everything blossoms anew, you can do it now! 



Manifest Message

People who succeed reach decisions promptly, and change them – if at all – very slowly.  People who fail reach decisions – if at all – very slowly, and change them frequently and quickly,  Indecision and procrastination are twins.  Where one is found, the other may usually be found also.  Kill off this pair before they completely tie you to the treadmill of failure.

from "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill

Manifest Message

Discipline comes through self-control.  This means that you must control all negative qualities.  Before you can control conditions, you must first control yourself.  Self-mastery is the hardest job you will ever tacke.  If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.  You may see at one and the same time both your best friend and your greatest enemy, by stepping in front of the mirror.

Notes from Jackie

I have a newsflash! If you feel kinda stuck in life, start something new! I recently felt myself stagnating professionally. Things weren’t moving. The energy was stuck. So I decided to start a new endeavor, one that seemed promising and fun, something that directed me toward work that was easy and that I know I’m good at. Immediately, I could feel the energy moving, and elements aligning to help make this a success. Everything started to coalesce without a lot of effort. Now, I’m excited and feel enthused when I get to my desk in the morning. I can’t wait to see what else presents itself that will contribute to its success. I know that good things will come of this very shortly.


It wasn’t that I left the old part of my life with things undone. I just felt it was time to shut the door. By shutting the door and starting anew–not wallowing in all the reasons the old part wasn’t working–I created new fresh energy that was free of obstacles. So if you feel stuck, don’t just stay there and wonder why. Start something new for which you have hope, faith and joy!
