What do you want to do… Change the world?


Identity, Direction, Purpose…. These three powerful words, have found a new meaning for me in my life. In all honesty it seems that I have spent the last eight years in a state of self discovery. It takes a great deal of effort to know who you really are. Sifting through the layers of labels and expectations placed upon me in my lifetime was an enormous task.

Writing is tool that helps us in many ways on our journey it is one of many action steps we can take. It is used for empowerment and letting go and has a great effect on our personal well being and confidence. One of the most helpful empowerment tools I wish I had learned about earlier in my life actually helps with all three of these aspects empowering us providing a great base to work from.
-
The tool is a Personal Statement! I consider it a painting of sorts and add to mine regularly. The benefits of writing one are many as it covers all three of the bases. Identity, direction and purpose, as you write yours go deep and visualize big!

Have you ever written down your vision?
-
Have you ever sat down and thought about what you would like to contribute to the world?
-
I had the gift of observing the power of what a written Personal Statement can do for a person. I was in a class and one of the students was asked about his life and what his vision was. He was also asked what the contribution of his vision would contribute to the world. He smiled and looked bewildered as he said he had no clue what his vision was nor did he ever give any thought as to what his contribution would be to the world. “I am just a common guy and have no dream or desire to change the world. I work in an IT department and my wife made me take this class” was his response. We all laughed as his wife jabbed him in the ribs. The instructor then asked him if he was up for a challenge that would change his life in a very positive way. He said he was and then the true transformation began.

The instructor gave him a “Home work assignment” he was to come in the next day with a two page typed in an Arial font size 12 double spaced Personal Statement. The statement was to be a written essay of what he truly aspired to do for the rest of his life and what he would be contributing to the rest of the world.” Even if he was a dishwasher for a dream job he would be helping clean up the planet and providing clean sanitary dishes for the people that ate in the restaurant where he worked. His dishwashing skills and services would be a benefit to the community as he would do so in a way that conserved water while using natural bio degradable soap he would be contributing to the community he lived in and the world.” Was the example the instructor put out there for the student. He smiled and laughed at the example and said he “Got it”.

The next day it was amazing to see the student stand up as he was asked if he had done his homework. He responded “Yes I did my homework I stayed up until 3 am working on it I was surprised at how many times I changed my mind and re wrote it. I finally decided what to write when I knew I was running out of time” he said as he held up the two pages.

The Student was asked to come up to the stage and read his essay to the group, he knew he was going to be asked and he was ready. He had dressed in a nice suit and wore a tie that matched his eyes. He began by telling us all he only wore a suit to church on Sundays and rarely wore a tie. He said he was inspired by the essay he had written and felt so alive, “I have never felt as alive as I feel today” were the first words he spoke as he walked onto the stage.

He began to read his piece when the instructor stopped him and urged him to read it with the passion it deserved and the passion he was showing in his dress and with his smile. He read the statement with such conviction and it was amazing to see him and the energy he shared as he went through the speech. It was like watching an inaugural speech by a famous president. He was so inspired and proud of what he had written and discovered as he searched within his being for his identity and the direction he wanted to go as he fulfilled his purpose. The group stood up and gave him a standing ovation as he shouted his last words “I am awesome, I am inspiring, and I am making our world a more loving and beautiful place.”

I have found a new respect for the Personal Statement and as I re write mine I thought I would share the story with you all and ask if you have written a Personal Statement. I hope you might find the time to do so and take the time to really discover what it is you want to do with your life that changes our world in a positive way even if it is doing dishes or being a garbage man you contribute to the world in many ways. I hope that you go deep and discover your passion and what you truly desire to be and do with your life as you paint the picture of who you are and want to be. If you are a dishwasher now and you aspire to inspire perhaps you will choose to become a writer in your vision and inspire change through peace or a greener planet through natural detergents and conserving water. Write your new story with passion from the depths of who you are and what you want to do knowing whatever it is you choose you will contribute to our world many great things! What is your dream… ?

Thank you all for being you and for taking the time to read this post. I hope you are inspired to write your Personal Statement and know who you are, where you want to go, and the reason you want to get there…” Identity, Direction, Purpose…” To inspire us all and change our world in a positive way as you set the example from within and change from within you will change the world around you!

Namaste 

Websites.. 5 minutes really? Oh my lol


I wanted to share a couple of thoughts about website building and Platforms for website hosting. First they all have a gimmick it seems! Have you ever read those ads that say have a site up and running in five minutes? Well perhaps it is true yet you would have to be an amazing individual and have a lot of information ready to cut and paste.

I recently began doing some extensive research and investigating as to where to open one of my new websites for my Coaching Business after much searching I went with the Number one platform as listed on a reputable site. Well I do have to agree they did have my site up in five minutes… I was editing it for about two hours before I got a nice note telling me my site was live and online. They suggested nicely that I may want to take it offline and post an under construction sign? What? Why would they not have thought of that and had a ready to go online button like the other website hosting building platforms I have used? I do have to say however that I am impressed and quite proud to say I was indeed online with a working site in five minutes..  Lol three days and two weeks into it I have a site I am ready to do business on I think?

That said I would like to ask a favor of you.. My WordPress friends and family.
If you have the time and inclination to do so perhaps you may stop by my website and share a few thoughts or suggestions if you might as to if you like it and if you have any suggestions that may make it better. I am going to link my blog and several other blogs may be re blogged there from time to time yet the site is still in the development stage. I do however need to step into the picture I am painting as far as my life goes so I will be doing small adjustments as the days go by.

Here is the link; http://www.personal-renovations-and-transformation-systems.com/

A tool from the “Old toolbox” Empowerment tools

I thought I might share a tool from the old toolbox as it may help someone in a way that they need right now. The largest obstacle for most people I have been chatting with and my mentoring clients is one I also had issue with… Identity, “who am I” we at various points in time ask ourselves that question. The answer is not always what we want to hear. Why? Well we are conditioned and have built a definition based on that conditioning and how we are feeling about ourselves. In truth there are many factors that lead to our answers.
-
I would like to share a tool that will help you as you search for the answer to that question. It is an empowerment tool that over many years has been used and developed to assist us in learning to claim our personal power and begin the process of learning who we are and build a new base to start from as we move forward in our personal journeys. I would say that it is one of the most effective beginner tools and is easy to use. Using it as I am suggesting twice a day for a month while adjusting it as necessary will change your life in a very positive way. It will also begin the reprogramming of your subconscious mind eliminating limiting beliefs and negative patterns of thinking about yourself to positive beliefs and patterns that empower you to move forward with confidence and self love.
-
The tool is called “Declaration” and is a tool that you create and has two parts that you apply in a verbal and visual way that is so simple yet so powerful.

Part one
Step one; take a sheet of paper and fold it in half, on the right hand side at the top of the sheet write the word negative, on the left hand side write the word positive.
-
Step two; on the right hand side of the page write down the first five negative things that people have said or that negative voice says about you in your head. Do not use I am statements remember this is the voice not your inner being, don’t accept the label!
-
Step three; on the left hand side of the page write the five opposites to the negatives you wrote on the rights side of the page and with each opposite add a positive statement about your physical being. Use I am statements claim your power!
-
EXAMPLE;
Positive …………………………………………….. Negative
I am Fearless and I have an awesome smile!……………………. You are too scared
I am Intelligent and I am healthy ………………………….. You are stupid
I am worthy and I am sexy …………………………….You don’t deserve that car
I am capable of doing anything I set my mind to………………You are not good enough
And I am strong
I am intuitive and a chunk of man candy ….you are a dreamer and make stuff up
-
Part Two:
-
Step one; tear the sheet in half set the negative side aside…
-
Step two: Take the positive list and read it aloud three times, do this at least twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening. The more you read it the deeper and faster the process.
-
The first time you read it read it in your normal voice out loud, then read it in a loud voice a “Galactic or Epic” voice raise your arms while you read it this way declare it to the Universe the third time your say it say it in a soft gentle and reverent voice. Remember it is important to read the list out loud at least three times in three different levels of voice.. Read it silently rather than Galactic if that makes you uncomfortable yet mouth the words. The Galactic is preferred for its movement of energy and the chemical reaction it produces in your body… Everything is energy and moving energy is momentum, the tool is a too, that establishes momentum and personal empowerment.
-
Step three; take the negative side and… WAD IT UP AND STAMP ON IT, BURN IT, THROW IT AWAY, FLUSH IT, DOUBLE STAMP IT WITH BOTH FEET do whatever makes you happy as you let it be known that you are not that!
-
I hope you may have found this post useful, perhaps you don’t need this kind of tool you may however know someone that is in a rough place with a loss of confidence feeling beat up and labeled. You can share a few minutes and help them create a Declaration tool that will help them empower themselves and begin changing their lives in a positive way!
-
Thank you for sharing your time with me and taking the time to read this post. You are awesome and I am grateful for your presence. I woulds also like to say thank you for being the positive change our world so needs as you share your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with. 
Namaste!

The Art of Bieng You… You are a Masterpiece… A poem


… “The Art of Being You”
I appreciate the diverse ways that people express themselves with me every day
I truly appreciate the smiles they share and the words they say
Every frown and every tear is a gift as well
Colored with emotion in ways I see and hear
Like strokes of a brush on the canvas of my soul
Each one of them I cherish and hold dear
-
We all express ourselves in all that we choose to say and do
Self expression is the art of being you
-
As you choose your form of self expression
I hope that you choose to do so beautifully
As you share your masterpiece with me
As you create the master piece that is beautiful you!
Self-Expression is the Art of being you
-
To me you are a Master, Creating a Masterpiece
Quite a beautiful masterpiece indeed
You are the Beautiful Masterpiece I see

Thank you for being you and expressing yourself

I wanted to share this poem. I am using it as part of a reading for an upcoming Anthology pre reading. The essay and the poem will be in the Anthology when it is released this Spring. I will share them both later in the month via video after the reading :) Hope you all have an amazing day!

Thank you for being you and for being the positive change our world so needs as you share your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with!

Commit to creating from your higher state of being! a re post from another blog I write for :)


I would like to share a little bit from one of the other projects I am working on I hope you enjoy the post and find it helpful!

Welcome to the Quantum NLP Blog.

Your presence is greatly appreciated and it is our intent that you enjoy your visit and find something that brightens your day and inspires you. The last few posts we have been exploring Christaine’s new book “The Law of Attraction Formula” (C) 2014 by Christiane Turner. The book due out in late November early December is a must have for every one that would like to take their life and dreams to the next level. Quantum is the next level and the Quantum State of Being or mind set is the way to achieve and accomplish the dreams and goals that for many may perceive to be impossible.

In the last post we shared that thoughts become things and that we create from the inside out. When we create from our Quantum state we attract things that are extraordinary. Here is an excerpt from Christianes new book that expresses what happens when we choose to go Quantum.

key

Commit yourself to create Quantum Results

When you are truly ready for something it puts it into appearance. As long as you have a sense of purpose, and move along your path with persistency you will succeed, and the results you are able to attract will leave you in Awe.

Miracles are normal

You are the catalyst to pull energy into physical form, which is truly miraculous. It’s through your transmissions that ideas transform into tangible results. There is a limitless supply of possibilities how thoughts can manifest in reality. By making the choice you can quantum leap into a completely different world of possibility and create the life of your dreams.

The results you attract into your life are the direct reflection of the quality of your thoughts. Your words are your magic wand to create miracles. You enable energy to transform itself from one state to another through the use of your will.

At the same time you support your intent with your high vibration feeling state. Your happy attitude is reflected by a higher frequency as you vibrate at a more rapid rate, which attracts high vibration Quantum Results to you.

Everything in the physical universe is made of energy, which is pure consciousness, and you allow yourself to proactively interact with that consciousness. Your results are a direct reflection of the level of energy you project and transmit.

Namaste with love,

The power of forgiveness… Incredible things happen when we ask!


I am somewhat reluctant to share an experience that I had the gift of being a part of recently. It was so moving and so filled with love I have to express my thoughts. It was out of respect that I debated if I should or shouldn’t yet I would be remiss if I did not.
=
Sometimes it seems that we are given the greatest gifts in the most unexpected ways in the most unexpected of places. We are always where we are supposed to be when we are supposed to be there. Life is a journey and we are all on our own paths or so it is said. We also have heard the saying the teacher shows up when the student is ready. I believe that whole heartedly, even if you are on your last dime and can not afford the classes you are supposed to be in the means will show up. Sometimes you don’t even seek the class or the path it finds you.
-
The last three days I have been attending classes that have been from 9 to 11 hours a day and involved home work. Have you ever attended a seminar or work shop that costs a lot of money and expected to do home work? The classes were about the “Art of Mentoring” and were taught by a truly gifted and talented mentor and public speaker. I am going to leave it at that out of respect and in reverence for those that shared one of the most powerful experiences with me I have ever experienced.
-
Imagine if you will a room with over 200 people taking a class to become mentors. The people were from all walks of life and I would say the group was about half men and half women. There were men that could have been professional athletes and I know that there were at least two that are known even famous that were in attendance.
-
Now imagine those two hundred people crying! In almost puree silence with a very soft background music playing 200 people man and women were crying. It was one of the most profound and beautiful experiences in my life. The energy of love and healing in that room was felt in the heavens as it was on this earth. As the tears fell from my eyes I thanked my maker as I shared my love with all that were present.
-
What you ask could make 200 people cry? The gift of an apology and the asking of forgiveness. We were expecting to talk about making 10,000 $ in a month. When we were all told that the thing that stops us had to be dealt with first. 200 People had 200 different thoughts going through their minds as the white sheet of paper was handed out. When we were all asked to take that piece of paper and write “I ask for your Forgiveness” and asked to write a letter to someone we needed to be forgiven by the room went silent we were given five minutes to write with a soft musical background. When the five minutes was up the lights were dimmed and we were asked to read are apologies reverently and in almost silent voices so the one we were standing next to could not hear our words.
-
There was not a single person in that room that did not shed a tear! The energy I felt was the most powerful energy I have ever experienced in a group of people. It was so beautiful loving and healing I had to share a few words here. The power of love and forgiveness is a gift of the highest order and will change your life and the lives of those around you!
-
I was given the tickets to this seminar at the last minute and had never even heard of the program. I have to say that I was meant to be there and learn from a Master.
-
Thank you all for visiting and allowing me to share some thoughts… L hope you can find it in your heart to ask for forgiveness and learn to forgive yourself. Forgiveness is love! Thank you all for being you, you are all awesome and amazing human beings and it is a gift to share this time and space with you. Thank you for being the positive change our world so needs as you share your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with! 
Namaste!

Self-Expression… The art of being you!


I am working on an essay of sorts for an upcoming Anthology, I chose to write about self-expression and have been asked to read at the upcoming pre release reading in a couple of weeks. I have actually written five different versions and needed to take a break before editing and combining them into a two page piece for the book and the reading. There is so much I can say about self-expression and the many ways we express ourselves. My favorite after a smile is writing, there are many ways to express ourselves in writing as well..

new phone pics 343

In the end I feel that the art of self-expression is in being you! However you choose to express yourself it is art! We are all works of divine art and meant to be unique. I hope we can all appreciate that we are works of art and express ourselves in beautiful ways. Dye your hair purple paint your nails pink, write a beautiful poem, paint a master piece, or share a beautiful smile what ever you choose do it with the knowing that you are a work of art!

Express yourself and be you! Time to get out and share a few smiles before getting back to work. Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! :)

Thank you all for being you and the wonderful, amazing ways you show the world how awesome and beautiful you are. Self expression is the art of being you, I hope you choose to paint and awesome and beautiful painting today and everyday as you are a masterpiece. Thank you for being the masterpiece you are and making our world a more better more beautiful place for all we share it with!

Namaste! :)
