Manifest Message

The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is.  When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want.

The Source of Your Prosperity


I’ll bet you think that you’re money comes from the company that pays you a salary or the clients that pay your consulting fees?


But you would be wrong about that. Your money and abundance of all kinds comes from The Universe—the unlimited Source of all things. This is a very important fact to remember. Because just as assuredly as The Source can create what you now have, it can create more!


It can also create less if you are greedy, sloppy with your money, unhappy about your life in general, mistrustful of the Universe, ungrateful, or filled with fear.


So let’s look at this unlimited source of income. How does it create prosperity? It transforms positive intentional energy into the form of currency that we use as exchange in our world today—money! Energy is limitless, so the prospect of more wealth is limitless.


Even if you are living on a fixed income today, this doesn’t mean that that is all there is. Using your inspiration and your creativity, you can find other ways to bring in more, stretch what you have, change what you are currently doing and open the door for something else.


And then there is the occasional surprise! An unexpected tax return or gift from a friend. A mistake in your favor by the bank. A medical reimbursement check. A leap in your mutual funds. An investment that’s matured. A back child support payment. Someone wants to buy something you created and just hung on your wall. A girlfriend buys you a plane ticket to visit her in another city. Someone hands you a coupon in the store that they cannot use. 


So if you would like to optimize your possibilities of attracting more abundance, here are certain keys to keeping the wellspring flowing


  1. Radiate Love and Gratitude—First and foremost be in a state of love and gratitude. When you are emitting these vibrations, it creates a positive “receptor” for wealth and abundance. Most of all, be grateful for the money you have and any new money that comes to you. However, the more grateful you are for EVERYTHING in your life, the more abundance you experience.  


  1. Be in the Flow—Money is like water; it is always flowing. You just need to be in the right place and mindset to receive it. So spend every day creating the perfect garden to be watered by this flow. Be at peace. Start your day with a ritual that consciously puts you in the Universe’s flow of positive energy — a beam or cone of golden light shining down upon you and surrounding you. Daily ask for this flow of light and love to shower you with grace. Do actions during the day that honors this flow; stay in integrity and speak with your heart open with compassion spilling forth.


  1. Stay Open—Be open to being directed to new and other sources of income. Don’t turn something down because it’s different from what you now know comfortably, or it requires time and effort. The Universe may be presenting you with an opportunity. This is not to say you MUST do everything put in front of you, but at least give it careful consideration. New ideas and new opportunities can lead to new wealth.


  1. Remember That Financial Limitation is a Temporary Condition—If you are moping about, feeling the economic crunch is a downward spiral that will create long term deprivation in your life, cut it out NOW! Because if you feel that way, that’s what you’ll get. If on the other hand, you consistently remember that financial limitation is a TEMPORARY condition and that it can be reversed at any time, you’re already on your road to recovery.


  1. Be Confident in Your Ability To Manifest—The more confident you are that you are a fast and rapid manifestor, the more you will likely manifest money quickly and easily. Know that you have this ability and this power, and that wealth is headed your way! That confidence and wisdom primes the pump.


  1. Ask For Guidance; Seek Inspiration—If you don’t have any good ideas about increasing your abundance, then ask for guidance and inspiration. You’ll be surprised at what ideas might come to your mind, or opportunities placed in your path. Take inventory of your skills, passions and unique talents to see how you might make additional money in fun ways that satisfy your heart and soul.


  1. Create Visualizations–I always think of myself standing under a waterfall, with the Universe pouring down abundance on my head. Money is just flowing everywhere. What visions can you create that place you in a situation to be saturated, blessed or in receipt of money?


  1. Install a Fountain in Your Home – In the Chinese Feng Shui tradition, flowing water in or around the home is a means to increase the energy (Chi) that attracts wealth. Find and buy an inexpensive floor or table-top fountain that keeps money flowing to you. (And make sure to close all the toilet seats in your house regularly since money will flow down the drain and out of your home if you don’t!)


  1. Trust the Universe – Once you express your desire for increased money, have faith that the Universe is working on it. (But just do your own housekeeping to make sure you are not doing anything else that can keep that wealth at bay—including being in a state of fear or emitting other negative vibrations.) Go about your business and remember to trust.


Remember and Revere the True Source of Your Wealth—When you are pitching an account, or having a conflict with the executives in your company, remember that it is not they who are the source of your income. Always remember and revere the TRUE Source of your money and this will serve you well. It releases your beholden-ness to anyone but the Universe. This allows you to make wise decisions and not decisions based on fear. And it keeps you in a proper state of gratitude and awe at the amazing Source that grants you the means to enjoy your life more fully!

Notes from Jackie

Did you know that being an optimist is not only good for your ability to manifest positive experiences, but it’s actually good for your health?  A recent article in Parade Magazine pointed out that researchers tracking 100,000 women over eight years concluded that optimists had a 16% lower risk of heart attacks. A study by the Mayo Clinic looked at 800 patients over 30 years and observed that pessimists had a 19% higher risk of early death!

Wow! Are those statistics validation that our positive thoughts are powerful elixirs for a longer and happier life—and our negative thoughts are toxic to health. So as we get close to winding up 2009 and we enter into 2010, I urge you to make a concerted effort in the new year to see the best in all things and to optimistically look forward to and anticipate wonder, joy and abundance—so that you can indeed enjoy these over a long, happy and healthy life!  Make this your resolution for 2010 and may it be the best year of your life—So far!   


Conscious Creation Tip

Minding Your Masterminding


If you feel alone in your personal or business life and you really would like to have a support group of like-minded people, trying putting together a Mastermind group. Even better if they are Conscious Creators, individuals who understand the power of personal empowerment, self-determination and self-responsibility. Look around your social and professional circles for people whom you trust and for whom you have regard. Don’t be intimated if your prospective mastermind partners are folks with more experience than you, or you perceive as more successful. Those are just the kind of people with whom you want to join, people who can provide guidance and help you advance. You’re looking for compassionate individuals who are willing to share what they’ve learned and are team players, they like to support others. The goal of the group is to provide support, guidance and information for each other. If everyone is on the same page, it should be a synergistic process—every person grows and benefits from the process and the group evolves as well. You can discuss your personal struggles, your business challenges or your spiritual evolution—whichever format the group decides upon. Start your group off with a positive visualization of what you want it to be!

FEAR, The Siren Call to Change


A Dozen Ways to Give Insidious FEAR the Boot


When most people think of FEAR, they conjure pictures of screaming women in slasher movies, horrible mindless villains, or heroes chased by zombies. But as we approach Halloween, it is a particularly opportune time to remember that FEAR is much more real for most of us as an insidious virus that our minds and emotions create to stop us from moving forward.


FEAR is the mind/ego’s way of saying “I’m not going there! I like being right where I am. I’m familiar with my current state. If I plunk myself right down here, nothing can hurt me because I already know this territory. I’m not worthy and if I stretch myself, I might get rejected.” 


FEAR is not willing to venture into the unknown, not willing to take risk, not willing to accept and adjust to change. FEAR is about ignoring imperatives to change, putting one’s head in the sand and expecting the problem to go away, allowing others to control your life because you may not have the courage or confidence to control your own. And FEAR always leaves your life messy, miserable and myopic (limited in scope.)


You may not even be aware of the grip FEAR has over you. And even if you are, you sometimes feel powerless to change because of past tightly-held beliefs.


But FEAR can be your ally. If you feel it, it is a siren call to change!


When you bump up against FEAR, you know you are called to move forward, be bolder, take a well calculated risk, flow with the change imposed on you, make the course correction you’ve been resisting, cross the seemingly impenetrable barrier, strike out on your own, act in your own self-interest, or reach for freedom! 


So what can you do when FEAR is at your door to move beyond it to something better?


  1. The Flipside of FEAR is FAITH. If you are experiencing FEAR, than something is pressing you to change. Where does that urgency for change originate—in your heart, in your spirit, in the Universe? If the Universe, your heart and your spirit are indeed pushing you forward, let go and trust…allow your faith to spring forward. Ask if this change is in your highest good—and if the answer is “yes,” than trust the Universe to allow the benefits to unfold once you give up resisting and start moving forward. If the pressure is mounting from outside—job loss, relationship breakup, etc.–again ask if this is in your highest good? This is the Universe speaking to you in the dialect of “loving change and re-direction.” Trust and go with the flow.


  1. Affirming, “I am FEAR-LESS!” Whenever I get overwhelmed by FEAR, I repeat this affirmation again and again. I repeat it with power as if I was brandishing a stake toward a vampire! My confidence grows and the fear lessens as I remind myself that I have no reason to FEAR because I am a FEAR-LESS being with the Ultimate Support System!


  1. Get Clear. If part of your FEAR is confusion about what steps to take or where to head, spend time in silence asking questions, reach out to someone else who can coach you through the process of getting clear or put your options in writing. These are just some of the ways you can get focused so that with clear intention, you can begin loosening the grip of FEAR.  


  1. Look at the Worst Thing that Could Happen if You DO Move Forward—Usually you will have built this FEAR up into something much more than what reality could possibly be. When you really look at the worst thing that could happen, it’s usually not all that terrible. Then it’s simple realization that moving forward easily out-ways your realistic worst case scenario. Voila, paralysis unblocked!  


  1. Bring It Out Into the Light—The more you look at FEAR from an objective standpoint, as if you were not in your body—bring it out, hold it to the light, examine why it’s making you crazy—the more power you have over it to eradicate it. Think of yourself as the sleuth bringing the clues out into the open so you can solve the case.


  1. Recalibrate Your Beliefs and Go for Expansion. Look at the beliefs that are causing you to hold onto your fear. What’s real, what’s not? Make a list of these limiting concepts. Then list the opposite possibility—the expansionist and unlimited belief that you could be holding, that would enable you to move forward with confidence and courage. 


  1. Stop Thinking About What You’re Giving Up and Start Looking at What You are Potentially Gaining—What’s the Upside? This is an easy one! Ultimately change toward your highest good will ALWAYS have a greater potential upside than staying where you are, or giving up what you currently have.


  1. Talk It Out–Find a forward-thinking and positive friend, someone who is used to stepping through FEAR—or perhaps a counselor or coach. Talk about what you are feeling. Ask that person to tell you stories of how he or she gained success by moving beyond. Be inspired by other people’s courageous acts. 


  1. FEAR is Just Thoughts and Emotions. Those Can be Changed!—FEAR is just something you created in your mind. It is not real. It is simply a virtual prison that you can choose to eliminate when you hit the delete button!


  1. Stop Clinging and Start Living…Embrace the Unknown!—Life is an exciting e-ticket ride with everything you want if you will simply embrace the unknown. But if you persist on clinging to the known, you’ll never experience it. Greet the unknown future with a warm welcome and magical things start to happen.


  1. Consciously Create/Visualize the Outcome—Once you release FEAR and unwaveringly commit to change, you can help secure a positive future by Consciously Creating it. Make sure you are operating in a high frequency, create your visualization, post mark it to the Universe and then let it go with a blessing of gratitude! FEAR has a way of fading in the wake of action and purpose.


  1. Remember Who You Are!—You are an unlimited being with a mandate to come here to live in joy. FEAR has no place in your abundant, richly rewarded life of service to the planet.

Manifest Message

Happiness is a clear mind.  A clear and sane mind knows how to live, how to work, what emails to send, what phone calls to make, and what to do to create what it wants without fear.

Manifest Message

Anticipation can be overrated.  Living in the present we're able to do anything we plan to do.  We're ready for today, and we're able to take on whatever is presented to us in the moment.  We may anticipate or dread the future.  But, we can never know what it will feel like and be like.  Just taking one step at a time we can do just about anything,  Just keep dreaming and stepping and soon you will be there,  You'll be wiser and stronger and in a new place.
