The forgiving state of mind is a magnetic power for attracting good. – Catherine Ponder
Forgiveness is one of the most powerful and important self-help tools in your toolbox. In order to improve conditions in your life, you must begin by forgiving everyone, everything, every experience and every memory in your life that needs forgiveness.
Why? There are two main reasons why you must forgive: first if you want to be forgiven you have to forgive and second, if you harbor any ill will, anger, regret or hate towards anybody you are preventing anything good and lasting from entering your life. (more…)
The Law of Abundance states that there are enough resources in the world for everyone to have enough money, love, joy, great health and more. You simply have to believe that there is enough of what you desire, and you will have activated the law.
The law of abundance is one of the Universal Laws based on the Law of Cause and Effect and the Law of Attraction. Your thoughts of abundance (cause) create a feeling of abundance, (emotions) and your thoughts and attitude towards abundance combine to attract abundance (effect) into your life.
How to Create a Prosperity Consciousness using The Law of Abundance
To create an abundance mentality, start by activating the Law of Abundance in your life. You have to rise above your current situation mentally, and start to believe that there is more than enough of what you desire for everyone. No one is taking what is rightfully yours. (more…)
Affirmations are a mental programming technique that uses a positive word or sentence to help you reprogram your dominant thoughts, take control of your thoughts, plan your life, and manifest your desires. Affirmations can also serve as substitute dialog to help you transform your current self-limiting beliefs into productive self-empowering beliefs.
An affirmation is a positive statement crafted in present tense, stating a personal desire or prayer that evokes a positive emotional reaction in you. This statement is a command from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind programing the mind with new data and informing it of the changes you desire. Those changes can range from your goals and aspirations to thoughts that calm you down or give you courage in your time of need.
Affirmations work by you consciously filling your mind with thoughts that support your goals.
“I am a New York Time Bestselling Author.”
“Be still and know that I am God.”
“I am healthy, happy, loved and grateful.”
Effective affirmations are one of most powerful self-help tools using them will open up a world of opportunities for you and help you take control of your life.
When you think of affirmations remember: Your thoughts create your life.” This is a Universal Law. You just have to keep in mind that if your thoughts create your life, then the person that controls your thoughts controls you.

What kind of life have you created for yourself? (more…)
Is “Worry Weight” Really What is Making you Fat? You are like, eh! What is worry weight?
Have you ever had that weekend where you thought you had just about eaten everything under the sun, and you were going to suffer the wrath of the Weight Guru (actual name of my scale) come Monday morning? Would that mindless munching and drinking that you did as you binge watched anything on Netflix eventually come home to roost on your thighs… and so on and so forth.
As you have now spent the entire weekend worrying about your weight, you step on the scale on Monday and voila! You’ve gained weight.
After you are done beating yourself up for a weekend eating cauliflower rice, shrimp, lentil chips, kale chips and several 20 ounce cups of water (not wine, juice or soda), you take another look at exactly what you ate. You realized you were barely clocking 1,400 calories a day, (with exercise) and then it dawns on you that you gained weight simply because you were worrying about gaining weight.
The fear and guilt you were feeling had gone ahead and created an extra pound or two where you should, according to the reality of what you ate, and the exercise that you did, have lost at least a half a pound.
Do you know some people go for years worrying their way into a size 18 and staying there? Most times it is not a result of what they actually ate, that is the power of the mind. (more…)

Do you sometimes get overwhelmed and immediately go into the “my life is a mess” dance because one area of your life is not working out as well as you planned?
We often see our lives as a house of cards, when one thing is out of place you think everything is going to crash down around you. The moment you start to think like that that the discord starts to spread, and before you know it you have infected other areas of your life that were doing great.
Once you realize that you have initiated an emotional snowball effect, you have to make the conscious decision to take a step back and look at the details around you.
Gaining clarity about your life using the Law of Correspondence and a Feng Shui Bagua is a simple system you can use as a reality check for your emotions and really figure out what is going on in your life.
What is the Universal Law of Correspondence?
The Universal Law of Correspondence, “As within as without.” The law states that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. Your surroundings are showing you a mirror image of how you feel and what you are thinking. You can easily test this law by looking around you, if you feel disorganized and stressed out, your environment is usually cluttered, and disorganized too.
