Open Your Mind to Receive by Catherine Ponder
This little book is well worth the couple of hours it’ll take you to read it. Ponder, who is a beloved author and teacher of manifesting skills, always uses plain language and simple stories to illustrate exactly how to create success and abundance for yourself. What I love about her books is she gives you the exact phrases to invoke—in capital letters!—to align yourself with Universal law and Source power to achieve what you desire. Open Your Mind to Receive is a recipe for making yourself a perfect vessel to receive all best that you desire and that the Universe wants to give you. My favorite section spoke of creating an Elimination List, to release that which no longer serves you and leaves room for new to come forward that is in your higher good. Lots of practical stuff here—and you know much I love PRACTICAL Conscious Creation advice!
One of the great joys of my life is to participate in a twice-a-month conversation with six like-minded women who are heart-centered wisdom teachers. We share our experiences, support each other, provide business expertise, participate in each other’s offerings and marketing support, share newly found opportunities, help our partners through difficult challenges and celebrate each others achievements. You can develop one of these mastermind groups yourself for business, spiritual and emotional support. Find at least four other people who are willing and who share some aspect of interest, and then just get started. Create a format that works for you and establish same-time meetings weekly, semi-monthly or monthly. Happy Masterminding!
Believing that the world is big enough for everyone’s success opens up the opportunities for our own success. Like attracts like, so when we act in a loving, giving manner – without thoughts of competition or expectations for what we will get – we naturally become a magnet for other people’s generosity and good things to flow to us.

According to Shiv Khera, author of You Can Win, failures most often occur for one of the following seven reasons:
Lack of persistence. More people fail not because they lack knowledge or talent, but just because they quit. It is important to remember two words: persistence and resistance. Persist in what must be done and resist what ought not to be done. We all have had setbacks in life. Failing does not mean we are failures!
Lack of conviction. People who lack conviction take the middle of the road. But what happens in the middle of the road? You get run over. People without conviction go along to get along because they lack confidence and courage. They conform in order to get accepted even when they know that what they are doing is wrong.
Rationalizing. Winners may analyze but never rationalize. Losers rationalize and have a book full of excuses to tell you why they could not succeed.
Not learning from past mistakes. Some people live and learn, and some only live. Wise people learn from their mistakes. Failure is a teacher if we have the right attitude. I’ve always said experience is the name we give to our mistakes.
Lack of discipline. Anyone who has accomplished anything worthwhile has never done it without discipline. Discipline takes self-control, sacrifice and avoiding distractions and temptations. It means staying focused.
Poor self-esteem. Poor self-esteem is a lack of self-respect and self-worth. People with low self-esteem are constantly trying to find themselves, rather than creating the person they want to be.
Fatalistic attitude. A fatalistic attitude prevents people from accepting responsibility for their position in life. They attribute success and failure to luck. They resign themselves to their fate, regardless of their efforts, that whatever has to happen will happen anyway.
If you see yourself in any of these, you have the power to change your “failures” into future successes. This is a corrective roadmap for your success and achievement…Take it and drive forward!
Morning is rebirth, renewal and re-ignition! It is a beautiful time to engage your connection with the divine, set your intentions for the day and step fully into your empowerment as a heart-centered light-being on the planet.
Each morning you can leave behind what was, what you did before, who did what to you in the past and how you did things previously. It’s a new day! But we often tend to slip backward if we don’t deliberately and consciously create separation from the past. Morning Rituals are a wonderful way to create that divide, and remind us of our brilliant power for reinvention of ourselves…a power that is indeed supported by our supreme Source.
I use my Morning Ritual to make a deliberate connection to God each day, to establish my gratitude, to ground myself, to consciously choose to come from a place of love, to set my intentions for the day and to infuse myself with the essence of spiritual light for that which I wish to manifest in myself.
You can create or build your Morning Rituals around whatever purposes you deem most empowering in your life. So here are some that you can mix and match to create the ideal Morning Ritual for you.
I’ll let Rita Roberts, my dear friend and colleague, share with you what she does for her Morning Ritual intentions: “When I wake up in the morning, before my feet touch the floor I set my intentions and align myself with them (important to do both). I say: ‘Today is a great day and EVERYTHING I need is in my path.’ I make a commitment to stay true to what’s in my heart and follow those desires because this is the path that’s lined with answers and provision. I pray that God opens my eyes to see the answers that He’s already provided. I remind myself that I too will be an answer for someone today. I also remind myself that I am well loved and provided for. I set an intention to give my best, appreciate myself and see the best in others and to be of assistance to others. I am then poised for love, progress and adventure at every turn. With all of this in mind, I set my feet on the floor beside my bed and take my first step of the day into purpose and provision. ”
Journaling or Writing Lists—Grab that pen and starting writing. You can put your intentions in writing, pour out whatever is in your mind and heart or write lists of affirmations. Writing is a way to deepen your connection with God and create alignment.
So go forth and create or refine your Morning Ritual so that it serves to manifest your highest soul purpose and greatest joy!
