I keep my focus in the direction of my desires.
If we desire abundance but keep seeing lack everywhere we look, we need to turn and look in a different direction. If we desire health but our attention is only on ailing, we must change our point of view. We cannot experience, achieve, or manifest a desire if we’re looking in the direction of what we do not want. And since we can only see in the direction we face, we must be facing that which we desire. If we desire harmony, we must look in the direction of harmony rather than staring at discord. If we wish to have a life we are grateful for, we must be seeing that which we are grateful for. If we do not like what we’re seeing, we must change our position.

I believe in my dreams.
I expect my dreams to become my reality.
Every day I move confidently toward the realization of my dreams.
Every day I do something that supports the fulfillment of my dreams.
Consider the dreams you have for yourself. Now ask yourself if you honestly believe in their coming true. Do you expect them to become reality, or not-so-much? Do you take action that supports the fulfillment of your dreams or are your actions counter-productive? Too often our dreams sit idle – placed high upon the shelves of our imaginations only to be looked at and sighed over wistfully from time to time but never touched. Dreams don’t just manifest themselves into reality without those two magic ingredients – belief and action. Our beliefs create an opening that allows our dreams to come to us. Our actions create the energy vortex that draws them into our experience. Dreams need our help to come true and today is a good time to start moving confidently toward their realization.

I see miracles everywhere.
I see all miracles as created equal.
I am humbled and awed by the miracles of life and existence that are all around me.
I welcome all miracles into my experience.
I am grateful for the miracles in my life.
There are no small miracles. There are no big miracles. To the universal font of creation a life-saving healing is no bigger or greater an occurrence than a fortuitous encounter on the street. Creation does not know the limits of more and less because creation It-self is limitless. All creation is equally meaningful to its Creator. Humans assign degrees of importance, worth, and value to acts of creation because we think in terms of judgment, limitation and duality. The Universe does not. From a non-physical perspective, every encounter, every birth, every happenstance, every synchronicity, every bit of support made manifest is just as grand and meaningful as every other.
We don’t have to limit ourselves and our thinking either. We can learn to think like the Universe. The job, the relationship, the healing, the purpose, the resources, the human being, the ant, the quiet moment, the parking space up front, the coupon for free gas, the feather, and the cloud can all be embraced equally without measuring one against the other. When we view our experiences and the world as independent of all else – without comparing or thinking of bigger or smaller, lesser or greater- we see each as meaningful and miraculous- period.

I will never again let life tell me, “no.”
It’s so easy to quit when met by obstacles. Or to give up when it seems like trying is all you’re doing, never succeeding. Or to feel like a victim to life. Who hasn’t been there? Today I’m reminded of the woman who taught me the meaning of empowerment. Vilma survived both World Wars while living in eastern Europe, dangerous escape to Austria with two young daughters, the loss of her baby boy, and a marriage that involved many horrors, including rape. “Many times,” she told me, “I want to die, but inside me something could not quit.” Eventually she left Europe and her husband, started her own business and a new life. She thrived, became very successful and lived a full 97 years. I asked her once what got her through all the hard times. “You listen and I tell you,” she said. “No matter what I go through I know I am here for a reason or else I would be dead, so it is my job to find a reason.” Then she took my face in her hands and that little woman, just barely four and a half feet tall, in her thick Hungarian accent said, “I make choice to never let life tell me no. I made life say yes to me!” When we’re crumbling under the weight of experience, or life wants to know what we’re made of, instead of backing down, stand tall and courageous, with the wisdom of a true heroine to encourage.

Every step I take toward my goal, however slight or imperceptible, is itself the fulfillment of a goal.
I rejoice daily in the progress I make toward the fulfillment of my dreams.
I affirm achieving my goals, while acknowledging and applauding the process of getting there.
Humans tend toward goal orientation. We ‘keep our eye on the ball’ and ‘never lose sight of the goal’. Having a goal and working toward it are fundamentally important aspects of creation, but they are only part of the puzzle. The fulfillment of any goal is achieved only by the cumulative effects of effort, time and events. Realizing the progress being made, relishing the small steps that make up a big journey, and applauding the daily movement forward, are every bit as important to achieving a desired outcome. It can be hard to see progress when fixated on an end result, but progress happens daily, moment by moment, sometimes in ways hardly recognizable. A chance meeting, an unexpected contact, a slight change of direction… all steps in the direction of fulfillment. Make a daily habit of affirming your goal. Doing so is an unquestionably powerful tool in the creative process. Then add the daily habit of acknowledging the progress made along the way. Feel empowered and encouraged by your own recognition of forward movement. Even on those days when you can’t quite see how progress was made, believe with all your heart that it was and that you just don’t know how… yet.
Applaud the small achievements as much as the big result.

I keep my thoughts positive and on what is right, working, and abundant in my life.
If a negative thought enters my mind, I do not give it any merit or attention, I replace it with a positive thought.
I put my mental and emotional attention on the thoughts that promote joy, happiness, feeling good, peace, harmony, gratitude, well-being, empowerment, and love.
Every time you have a thought you plant a seed in your mind that has the potential to grow and become part of your physical experience. This is how you create your world, your tomorrows and your next moments, with your thoughts, planting one seed at a time. The attention we give to those thought-seeds is the fertilizer they need to grow. If a thought merely passes through one’s consciousness, it is unlikely to ever become a manifested experience. But if a thought-seed is fed one’s attention, it is being nurtured and it will begin to grow roots. When the attention we place on our thought-seed is imbued with emotion, we are feeding it with the most powerful fertilizer and is likely to sprout into physical reality. If I have a thought such as, “I am without love.” I have planted a “without love” seed. If I give that thought-seed my continued attention and focus, and if I have strong emotions accompanying my attention, that seed will likely become a manifested experience of being or feeling “without love” in my physical world. This is why it can be so hard to lift ourselves out of a negative state of mind. Every negative thought plants a seed that produces more of the same, leaving us spiraling in a difficult direction. This is also why it is so important to think thoughts of what we want, what we love, what we hope for more of, what we dream of having, and of what is right, functioning, and abundant in our lives. By planting positive thought-seeds, we are growing more of what we love, want, and are grateful for in our lives and experiences. No one grows corn by planting onions.

It’s so easy to quit fighting when met by obstacles. Or to give up when it seems like trying is all you’re doing, never succeeding. Or to feel like a victim to life. Who hasn’t been there?
