Creating Dreams from the Heart

by Molly McCord –

Some things in life are absolute and true. 

A few of them are:
  • You are powerful.
  • You have unlimited gifts and talents.
  • You are loved beyond measure.
  • You are here to SHINE.
  • You are here to bring all of your dreams into fruition.
Regardless of what you are experiencing in “human terms” at any time, your spiritual essence is always ready to take you somewhere higher, deeper and more loving. Your spiritual Self is always willing to expand and connect you with your heart’s desire.
Everything begins in spiritual form before it comes into physical form.
It is essential to keep your thoughts and intentions focused on what you want to create.You don’t have to know the “how” or the details. You just need to know the end result, first.
The process of creating your dreams begins with the energy of the end result. Visual the energy coming together above your head. See it moving down through your body. Imagine it sitting in your heart space, glowing, beating, strong.
Your heart energy is the fastest way to connect to your highest intentions because it holds Love. 

Create from a place of Love and your dreams will benefit as many people as possible.

Interconnected Creativity

by Molly McCord –
What You Create Within Yourself:

Whatever you create within yourself, you create more of in the world. It’s all interconnected and intertwined, a continual dialogue of energy of YOU with US and EVERYONE ELSE. So when you look at how you can be more courageous and loving and peaceful and happy within yourself, you’ve just created that same energy for everyone else to tap into, too. 
It’s never only about you; that’s not even possible. It always branches out to US.
So what do you want to create today?
What can YOU offer US that is uniquely, brilliantly you and it will connect with EVERYONE ELSE as part of our global story?
It always begins with energetic intention. 
Check in with your intention first and get that straight. Get it solid and clear. Then go from there.
I’ve watched MANY people with wobbly intentions experience wobbly results and get sidetracked by their Ego-Minds intentions. Doesn’t work. Things don’t line up. It all falls apart because the ground was shift-y. Back to the starting point you go.
The simplest place to start is with respect for everyone you connect with or simple kindness or joy – let’s pass around the joy! Maybe it’s creativity or positive energy. Whatever feels right for you, go with that for today and create more of it.
It absolutely matters more than you know. People are looking for the good vibes from well-intentioned energies.

Setting Clear Intentions

Daily Affirmative Prayer:

by Gayle Dillon – 

What a glorious morning to realize that the Infinite Spirit is as close as my breath; for I know that God is always breathing me, breathing each and every one of us. The wondrous Source of all there is manifests itself in and through and around all creation. There truly is not a place where the true essence of the Divine does not exist. I claim this as my Truth. 

I know that we are all have choice to make any decision we choose, negative or positive, for I know that God does not judge; God just IS. The natural world responds to the Law of Cause and Effect, so we are allowed to make any choice we desire knowing this Truth. 

So knowing this Truth of free will, this Truth of the Law of Cause and Effect, this Truth that we are all manifestations; individualized and unique, of this One Source I declare right here and right now that I will choose not to assume anything. 

I take responsibility for clearly stating what I want, when I want and how I want my life to unfold; not only in my earthly relationships but in my relationship with the Divine. I know that when I clearly communicate in my relationships then no one has to read my mind or guess at my meanings. 

I also know that when I clearly communicate my intentions with feelings knowing only the highest and best for myself and all concerned that the Universe provides. For I know that just as in relationships, I will receive and if I am not clear with my desires I may receive something that I really do not intend. 

I give thanks for this wondrous day. I give thanks for choosing not to assume anything. I give thanks for all that I have, all that I receive and all that I give – for I am so grateful to be living in God’s abundant Universe and for knowing I am living an abundant life. I release, I let go, I let God and so it is.

The Power of Vision

by Evita Ochel –
Living Out Dreams Through 
Conscious and Focused Intention

Sometimes when we are in the midst of change, we cannot quite grasp the potential, the impact or the grandness of it all. Sometimes, it isn’t until something is “completed” that we look back and marvel at our creation and our creative abilities.
This is a special week for me, as our new home is complete. Those of you who have been readers here on for a while, know that back in the spring, my husband and I made some drastic changes in our life, and embarked on a new journey.

This included building a home, living closer to nature (more in the wild), in a simpler and more natural way, and taking on an even more peace-filled way of life on all levels.

The last 2 years especially, have seen the most rapid flow of creation for us! Did I always grasp the potential of our creative power? I don’t think so. But fast forward to today and I am in awe of what we have created.

Today, I am free of any official workplace, I am my own boss, I am working my version of the 4-hour work week, I am married to the love of all my lifetimes, we work together from home, living in the middle of nature, in a newly built and custom designed home by us. And last but not least, I am happy, satisfied and filled with inner peace.
So how did all this happen? Was I born under a lucky star? Did I fall into favor with the “Gods”? Do I have some wealthy relative funding my endeavors? Did I win the lottery?
No, to all of the above. What has transpired in my life in the past two years, has little to do with external forces, and everything to do with conscious and focused creation. In inspiring more of you, to move towards and live out your own dreams, allow me to share more about my personal “ how”.
A Vision Was Born
I won’t go back too far, but I want to take you on a small journey of how dreams can and do come true. So without sharing the story of how I attracted my first dream job, found my husband and landed in our first dream home together, I will focus on the transformational power of the last 2 years.
When I first started working as a teacher (the job no one generally leaves until retirement), I never considered doing anything else with my life, but teaching. The furthest I got, was perhaps thinking of one day switching from high school to college teaching. But I thought I was set, secure and that was it, in a perfectly carved out, typical pattern.
So somewhere in the last 3 years, my husband and I allowed various fantasies to pop into our heads.

Key word here is “allowed”. We would think about being free of any workplaces and living life on our own schedules, anywhere we wanted to in the world. This was radical thinking but we did not dismiss it. We entertained it, welcomed it and enjoyed it.

Fall, based on many signs to proceed this way, we put forth the idea that I was going to leave my teaching job, to pursue my passions and creations of being of service to others, on my own terms.
Even though it still seemed like a far reach, I began to talk about it with others as if it was real and I was going through with it. June, the dream manifested.
Late Fall , upon my husband freeing himself up from his employer as well, we began to play with the idea that since we were both ‘free’ from a fixed workplace, we could live wherever we wanted. After some dreaming and envisioning we were called to nature, and thought we would sell most of our ‘big’ stuff, renovate/put a second floor addition on the cottage we had “up north” and live there.
Winter 2009/2010 we draw a picture on a little notepad of how our new upstairs space would look like. We clip the picture on our fridge and appreciate it with joy and excitement, every time we pass by the fridge. We envision ourselves living there and feeling what it would be like.
February 2010, we meet with contractors to find out that we are not renovating or adding anything. Our option is to build a brand new house from the ground up. On that same notepad, we draw what we want the downstairs and outside of it to look like. We clip in on the fridge. With joy and excitement, we appreciate our creation as if it was already real. We envision ourselves living there and feeling what it would be like.
March 23, 2010, we sell our old house in less than 24 hours. April 22, 2010, construction begins on our new house. August 13th, we move into our new house. This week – September 15, 2010 – our house is officially finished, and looks identical to the little pictures we drew that hung on our fridge.
Living Out Dreams Fully

Sometimes we get everything we want, and then some. And what do we do? While most of the time we do celebrate and enjoy it, sometimes we feel it is so good, too good almost, that we sabotage our happiness. We do one thing to lose the beauty of the experience – we don’t take the time to enjoy it. Either we deny its fullness, or move right into another creation.

My greatest challenge right now is really becoming one and fully enjoying my creations. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated and enjoyed my husband from the first day I met him, to this very second. We are both enjoying and celebrating the creation of our new home and life in nature. But the area I am falling short in, is the “work” area.
In the back of my mind, I hear society’s or perhaps my Ego’s voices: “what are you doing with your life?” – “why haven’t you written a book yet?” – “why aren’t you doing more speaking engagements?” – “why aren’t you working towards higher traffic on the site?” – “you are letting your education/talents/gifts go to waste” – and a few other things…
I sometimes forget that I have the freedom to ‘be‘ and ‘do‘ whatever I want. 

My husband and I have not attained financial freedom according to society’s standards but the way we structured our life is to tread lightly on monetary and material objects – needing nothing – and having everything we need – and enjoy – in the moment of now.

We all want various forms of freedom but should it come, we almost feel guilty about it. This is something I have finally decided to face and truly merge with, to be one with my dream of freedom. To focus on “being” and my “personal creative expression” when and how my being chooses, on my own terms, not society’s often confining and unnatural ways.
We Are Not Done Dreaming…or Creating
Having gotten to this point by no means indicates that this is it – that we are done dreaming or creating. Our life is a constant and never-ending creation. It is never done, whether we are in the physical or the spiritual, for we are forever ‘evolving beings‘. So what is next for us? For now simply to take some time, to just sit back, enjoy and take in our creations thus far.
Markus will continue moving more towards working on his own projects, while I will continue building my confidence in that I do not need to be “doing” something, that is defined by society as having enough value, status or worth. Learning “how to be” is perhaps one of the greatest “jobs” we can ever have, and one at which, most of us are failing. I want to learn how to integrate myself more with nature and the oneness that connects us all.
Another big dream of ours is to find ways and means to empower others to make their own dreams come true – to find their own abundance of love and inner peace, that we each so much deserve. We love traveling to nature-filled, warm and exotic places, so we will continue little spurts of creation by putting together new trip ideas.
Will I write a book? Will I go on my own tour of speaking to audiences across the world? I don’t know. I haven’t decided with enough focus or intention how I want that to play out yet. I know I love writing and sharing with all of you here and growing this space into an authentic, spiritually expanding space for all – to continue to reach those who would benefit from hearing what is shared here.
For those of you wondering if we are planning on any other “additions” to our life (hint, hint), we don’t know that yet either. But if we choose to, we will definitely approach it with some serious focus and intention.
So in the end, this sharing of my personal life is in no way meant to elicit any kind of envy or further yet jealousy or meant as any form of bragging. It is simply meant to serve as an example and perhaps inspiration, that everyday, dreams can and do come true.

That we are the creators of our lives. That life need not be “hard” or full of “suffering” to get something “good” or just because. That I am no different, no more or less special than you and that whatever one can manifest or create, so can any other.

We all have our personal dreams and goals. Find yours, and live them out.
All it truly takes is to have a vision of knowing what you want, sticking to it through conscious focus and intention and being flexible with the creative process along the way. Additionally, to also be open to the Universe’s delightful surprises for you, to continue to further your personal growth and soul evolution.

The Intentional Evolutionary


by Dr. Charlie Grantham –

Motivation – Why
This essay is part manifesto and part a call for action. The futurist part of me says that 2015-16 is a critical juncture for this planet. Myself, along with others, are of the belief that humanity has reached an inflection point. It can make some conscious choices to further our evolution or fall backwards in terms of quality of life, planet health and spiritual development.
Part of my motivation to write this is to intentionally seek out, evangelize, recruit and offer support to others of a like mind. In itself this is a demonstration of one of my suggested actions that is to deliberately, with focused intent reform your immediate social network.
What follows is an exposition of the five most general trajectories of change. We can, through retrograde actions and behaviors attempt to slow them down or stop them. That effort would be in vain as the momentum for their unfolding has been moving forward for about 4.5 billion years.
After looking at these forces, I will explore five strategic action initiates that must be taken into consideration to realize our potential at all levels of human organization—beginning with the person and culminating with a planetary self-organizing system.
The last part of this article is an explanation of  four concrete, conscious things you can do to become an intentional evolutionary. And give birth to a more highly evolved order of existence.

The Arc of Evolution – More of These
five most general trajectories of change
Michael Dowd has done a marvelous job of distilling a vast literature on forces of change and boiled it down to five factors. Some would argue some nuances to these five but I believe they serve as a good anchor for this manifesto. For example, one could argue that technology is a separate driving for change and evolution. I would argue that it (technology) is a cultural artifact that enables the awakening of these more general trends of evolution.
This is larger than social diversity – although that is included. Diversity of species, diversity of climates, and diversity in beliefs of the nature of being, how we acquire knowledge and metaphysics itself. A constant expansion in the number of elements surrounding our existence.
As systems evolve into a greater number of parts they also grow in the number of connections among and between those parts. The more connections, the greater the complexity. This implies that a more valid understanding of the dynamics of the system requires a deeper understanding of the very nature of systems – biological, environmental and human.
The scope of our ability to perceive, process and make sense of an ever-expanding universe. Biologically brains get bigger and senses become more finely tuned. For example, at this time human awareness is now creeping into the cosmos. Telescopes expand our visible universe and physical probes extend our sensory ability to planets and even comets. Not to mention the technology phenomenon of the Internet, which now places each individual theoretically in direct contact with every other human being.
Speed of Change
Is increasing no doubt as a byproduct of the first three evolutionary arcs. An expanded base of knowledge and more interconnections between innovators drives this. Speed of diffusion of new ideas, technologies and understanding of systemic processes as we move up the curve of innovation diffusion. At some point this speed will jump exponentially when a critical mass of connectivity is reached.
Intimacy with Self
This is the most difficult of all evolutionary processes to comprehend. The first critical juncture was the development of self-awareness of humans. Sentience. Self-reflection, self-remembering are hallmarks of this evolutionary vector. Perhaps psychology (in the Western vernacular) is the best example. However, Eastern traditions such as Buddhism are having a major influence. We know ourselves, motivations, emotions and cultural influences in an ever-increasing fashion.

Elements Required to Realize Potential – Your Process
five strategic action initiates
The forces that restrain development towards an advanced state of evolution are a lack of understanding what is needed to reach full potential. There are five areas that need to be developed to move forward See figure below.
The first of these is “Direction”. The base question for you to ask is ‘what are we talking about?” What is your focus of attention? There is an old saying “if you don’t know where you are going, you’ll never get there.” Put another way, you need to truly and deeply understand what your personal purpose is. What direction do you want your compass to point?
Capacity is about “what can you do now?” What resources do you have under your control? What is your proven knowledge base and demonstrated competencies? This is your base foundation of your knowledge, skills and abilities. An honest assessment is necessary, not a “well I think I can” attitude. External assessments are a great tool in developing this.
What is truly possible for us? Given direction and capacity, what is it that we need to develop? This is the thing we don’t know, and what we don’t know we don’t know. Answering these questions helps develop a personal, internal development plan. In order to reach your full potential what do you need to obtain, develop and nurture. The typical stumbling block here is fear, uncertainty and doubt. These can be overcome.
Environmental Context
Now our attention shifts to the external environment – everything that surrounds and encapsulates our being. “What will oppose and also help us reach our potential?” Enumerating these begins the process of an action plan to overcome obstacles and leverage helpful resources. Out another way, ‘who can we count on to assist us’ and who or what can get in our way?’
Agility is really about looking into the future. We began with looking at evolutionary forces. Well if those are true what can we expect to unfold before us in our development journey?  What if our personal prophecies come true? What tis the timing? Can we be ready in time and recognize when action is necessary? Further, to begin the cycle all over again, if that manifests and becomes reality, what new opportunities may portent themselves?

Pathway to Your Mastery – Your Plan
four concrete, conscious things you can do to become an intentional evolutionary
The Activating force of evolutionary trends and the Restraining forces of lack knowledge and abilities are reconciled by having a grounded plan of action. That plan has four components.
Self Development
The ultimate goal of becoming an intentional evolutionary to help this realization for humanity manifest quickly and without fits and starts or being sidetracked by delusion. The ideal pattern which can unite all components of your self-development plan into a structured whole. If you now know what capabilities you need, what is the step-by-step program to do that?
Practice Creation
At the other end of the motivational axis is the living out of a ‘practice’ to put things in motion. What are the specific activities you will engage in to go through this transformation? What will be your personal practices such as mediation? What actions, attitudes and beliefs will you act out in your community to reach your goals?
Social Network
What instruments will you need? In this developmental context I believe the most powerful tools is your extended social network. This is your leverage point. Re-engineer your network to provide you with multi-faceted governance; bring you the resources you need; and connect you with pathways to realize your vision. Conversely, this is where you detach from those who would distract you or hinder progress. Don’t suffer fools.
This is the tip of your evolutionary arrow. Action of getting the message out, evangelizing the message and recruiting others to join with you in the journey. When you broadcast your direction, using your capabilities this is how people will look back down the tunnel and see you. You need to be conscious of your presence. How do you look to the outside world? How do others perceive you? Do you need to adjust the perceptions?
Thus Endeth the Trick
Good luck on your journey. It is a never-ending path of personal evolution. Pay it forward.

Keys to Practical Conscious Creation

 The Key to Becoming a Better, Faster Manifestor:

by Jackie Lapin – 

By now you are no doubt familiar with the principles of Law of Attraction and Conscious Creation, and have seen or read The Secret—and you are aware of using the power of positively directed thought to improve your life.
But let’s be honest…How often do you remember to apply these? Maybe once or twice a month? Or when you come across something you really want to manifest—so you get busy visualizing? Have you really made it a way of life? Are you impatient to see things become reality, but the slowness of the process is making you crazy?
Well I have news for you. Transforming your life through Conscious Creation is not a sometime thing… it requires rewiring your thinking and your lifestyle–and it requires consistency.
It mandates becoming proficient at Practical Conscious Creation, applying the principles of Conscious Creation to everything you do—in decision making, energy management, relationships, attitude, mindset, rituals, activities, habits, communication, self-care and daily chores. When you do, the reward is in becoming a better, faster manifestor, day-by-day and ultimately, enabling you to live a life of YOUR choosing.
In writing my first book, The Art of Conscious Creation, I began to apply “frequency management” to my life—managing the frequency level of my thoughts and emotions so that I would increase my success at manifesting—and indeed I could directly see the correlation between that and the realization of positive, successful developments in my life. But, I often got caught up in daily activities and let my vigilance slip. Lo and behold, so did my consistency of manifesting what I wanted.
So I realized that there had to be a way to inculcate the key principles in daily life, so much so that it would become a WAY OF LIFE…not an occasional thing, when you just happen to have time for a little meditation. And so Practical Conscious Creation was born!
Practical Conscious Creation isn’t a system. It’s simply applying the wisdom of the process to your daily activities.
Key elements in Practical Conscious Creation

  • Setting Intentions/Visions – In starting any project you want to clear a smooth pathway. Setting an intention is like laying your Yellow Brick Road. It gives you and the Universe a shared direction and destination.
  • Being Clear on Where You are Heading or What Outcome You’d Like to See – You can’t get there from here if you don’t know where you’re going. Be very clear about what you want — and that your heart and head are in alignment. (i.e. your subconscious beliefs aren’t undermining your forward motion.)  True clarity allows the molecules to form into a specific reality related to your intention.
  • Checking Your Mindset for Negative Thinking – You’ve got to root out any vibrations (thoughts, emotions) that are sabotaging your pathway. Negative thinking comes in a whole rainbow of colors–fear, anticipating all the reasons things won’t happen, limitations, distrust, lack of self confidence, feelings of unworthiness, blame, remembering the past experiences, needing to control, anger, etc.)
  • Selecting Your Energy and Applying It – Once you’ve recognized your negative thoughts, you have the ability to choose an alternative vibration. What’s it going to be? Optimism, Trust, Assuming the Best, Faith in Self, Faith in the Universe, Cheerfulness, Love, Compassion, Willingness, Acceptance—or a combination of these?
  • Being Cognizant of Your Words – You must be vigilant about the words you use both in your mind and in the world because these have a tendency to become your reality. As you go about your project, what are you saying to yourself, to your colleagues, to your partner, to your friends, to your family and to others you’d like to influence?
  • Opening Yourself to Assistance – Too often we think of ourselves as loan wolves, everything falling on our shoulders, but if we only open ourselves to assistance, or call it forth, it can be ours. This can be in the form of tangible aid from others–people pitching in–or the Universe putting exactly what we need in our path to help us.
  • Being True to Yourself – We must be honest with ourselves and others, and be true to our desires and our values in order to fulfill our goals and our destinies. We can’t live a life of compromise for others, because that diminishes our true passion. It is the energy of passion that manifests and moves us in the direction we seek.
  • Allowing What Happens to Be OK and Being Flexible – Where many aspiring Conscious Creators fall down is in their rigidity of holding to a chosen outcome or expectation. While setting intentions and visions is important, being flexible with what manifests is even more important. Learn to adjust, accept and flow. Without resistance you can maintain a positive, gracious and happy outlook.
  • Accepting the Wisdom of the Experience – Find the gift in the experience, no matter how it turns out…what lesson, benefit, positive spin can you derive from the experience?
These are just some of the key elements, but there are so many ways to apply them. You can apply Practical Conscious Creation to money, to relationships, to love and romance, to work, to family life, to health and healing, to all of the things that hold you back, to living life more deliciously—to anything.
And here’s the fun part… You can feel the difference in the FLOW of everything. If you are like me, you’ll soon start seeing things manifest far more quickly for you in all phases of your life—small daily things, large achievements, wishes, hopes, dreams.
There is something so delightful in thinking you’d like to see someone you’ve been missing and the next minute they are calling you to say they are coming for a visit. Or pondering where your next client might come from to fill the gap in your cash flow and you meet someone at a party who has the perfect project for you. Or, as in my case I asked the Universe for a FREE vacation—and a month later a girlfriend invites me to stay at her new house in the Bahamas for a week!

Practical Conscious Creation is the key to fast-tracking your manifesting. Make it a lifestyle and you’ll be astonished at the change in your fortunes!

How to Keep a Positive Attitude

Almost everyone gets days that they feel life is dragging them down. There can be many causes for these negative feelings, but there are ways to overcome negativity and stay positive. There has been a time in my life when I had to work actively on staying positive. I had to find ways to get rid of my negativity at home and sometimes at work as well. This is why I want to share some tips and quotes with you all today on how to stay positive.
Tips on how to stay positive
1. Ground yourself and find your own path: One of the main reasons people don’t know how to stay positive is because they live their lives to please others. Stop. Get to know yourself; who you are and what you want and need in life. Boost yourself by focusing on what is important to you personally. Set achievable goals for yourself and strive to reach them. Remember that exceptional people do exceptional things try to push the boundaries of your potential. Some things in life are just random and what you do with it is what matters. Your life is your own. You can choose the direction you want to take and pursue it one small step at a time.
2. Appreciate yourself: Look on the inside and find things that you like about yourself, even if it is something small. Are you funny? What do you have pride in? Are you good with people? Do you have a lot of patience? When you focus on the positive things about yourself, you might have a positive influence on others without even knowing it. Appreciate your physical attributes. Do you have nice strong nails or beautiful feet? Does your haircut make you look great? Find things that appeal to you.
3. Change the way you look at things: If you cannot change something, change your attitude towards it. It all depends on how you choose to look at things. Let yourself dream and get excited about possibilities. If you cannot change something, do not waste your time worrying over it. If you can’t control it let it go.
“If you change the way you look at things, 
the things you look at change.” 
– Dr Wayne Dyer
4. Block out negative thoughts: If you find yourself in a bad mood decide to change your mind. Do not focus on the negatives. Ask yourself the right kind of questions like what can I learn from this rather than why did this happen to me?. Make your self-talk positive. Get feedback and support from positive people in your life that make you feel good about yourself and know how to stay positive themselves. Do not automatically assume that nobody cares. Realize that most people have ups and down in their life as well as moments of low self-esteem. Remember that there will always be a tomorrow, next week, next month. Some things pass with time and most things tend to get better.
5. Do not stop yourself from feeling joy: Let yourself enjoy life. Take the time, step back and just enjoy the moment. It is important to smile and laugh even if your situation is not the best. Have fun for fun’s sake, even it is not important.
“There are always flowers 
for those who want to see them.” 
–Henry Matisse
6. Reminisce and take time for yourself: This is an important how to stay positive tip. Think about happy memories. Think back about all the good things you have experienced, felt, achieve it doesnt matter how small. Remember that in the future there will be many more good things and do not allow a few obstacles to get in your way. Another how to stay positive tip is to spend some quiet time alone, without any distractions like a cell phone or television and listen to your inner self.
7. Be consciously grateful: Find things, people or experiences to be grateful for EVERYDAY! Take stock of your life and consciously appreciate the people and the things in it. It does not have to be big things but I am sure if you have access to this blog post on a computer any computer you must have something to be grateful for. There will always be people out there that are much worse off than yourself but are still able to stay positive.
A final way I learned how to stay positive is to keep healthy, stimulated and challenged by doing loads of activities.
