Hi Dear Friends!
To read my latest post, please go to http://www.fishingforsoul.com
Yes, I’ve moved the blog and it will now be linked to my Earth Spirit Works web site. There are still kinks to be worked out, but that’s where I’ll be from now on.
Thanks for reading and for your patience as I’ve dealt with some technical issues the past few weeks.
Oh, yeah, the t-shirts in the photo above are for sale – designed by me and my friend Leslie Howitt. The Be Open Designs web site – where you can order them on line – will be up and running soon. Until then, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll ship one to you ASAP. We’ve got men’s and women’s sizes and styles. They’re $25 and they make a great gift.
Love and peace –
Those Diesel ads have gotten to me again. Now they have me thinking about my Action/Attraction Plan and my tendency to procrastinate (as duly noted by my ex the other night).
Who’s going to help you reach your goals? How will you be accountable?
“Whenever you set your mind to something there is a chain reaction in the Universe. All systems are set to go, and the ultimate player in the game is you.
You determine how fast or slow the results come. You determine the outcome. You resist or persist.
Ask your self: What do I really want? How do I want that to come to me? What can I do to make it easier for all of my allies to assist me?
Remove any and all obstacles by allowing your self to do what you do best: Create.
Build your Trust Fund by taking positive and powerful steps EVERY DAY until you feel certain that you are where you want to be and can fully support your dream with your positive thoughts, feelings and actions.
Commit to asking for help – all ways and every way.
Let it flow, let it flow and let it go.”
Here are some affirmations that may help you:
1) ‘I am all ways open to receiving what is best for me.’
2) ‘Everything I desire is mine.’
3) ‘There is help for me everywhere I turn.’
And so it is.
Today I am grateful for the ability to stay on track without looking back, Dona Leova’s protection bath, a clear vision and voice, prosperous new business deals, love without conditions, dating, abundant resources that support my dreams, my book agent, editor and publisher, deep sleep.
Paz y luz!
The new Diesel ads in the New York City subways have got me thinking: How ‘stupid’ can I be? In other words, what are the wild and crazy ideas that I have in my head for my business and personal life that I am or am not putting into the world? And if I am not putting the ‘stupid’, out-of-the-box stuff out there, then why not? Wouldn’t that go against my new year commitment of following impulses? What is stopping me? What am I afraid of?
In a blog post from Jan. 18th titled Unrealized Projects, Seth Godin noted that, “When I was at MOMA last week, I saw a list of director and artist Tim Burton’s projects. Here’s the guy who’s responsible for some of the most breathtaking movies of his generation, and the real surprise is this: almost every year over the last thirty, he worked on one or more exciting projects that were never green lighted and produced. Every year, he spent an enormous amount of time on failed projects.
One key element of a successful artist: ship. Get it out the door. Make things happen.
The other: fail. Fail often. Dream big and don’t make it. Not every time, anyway.
Tim got his ideas out the door, to the people who decided what to do with them. And more often than not, they shot down his ideas. That’s okay. He shipped.”
That reminds me of something my friend Robin and I sometimes say to each other when we find ourselves hesitating about sending out a work proposal: “Just press send.”
Or in the words of Nike, “Just do it!”
What big, wild, ‘stupid, thing would you like to launch this year?
Today I am grateful for the NYC subway system that gets me all over the city, subway ‘art’, my willingness to change, CM, prosperous business opportunities, my book agent, editor and publisher, travel to new places, introspection, friends who ask the right questions at the right time, money, and meditation.
Thanks and peace to all!

I can’t help myself. I’m thinking big and I’m excited about it. It’s a new year and a new decade and I’m ready for it to be HUGE. How about you?
“Be imaginative, bold and brave! The results may surprise you.” – Jim Allen
On New Year’s Eve I began a three-day Visioning Retreat (brought on by my desire to ring in the new year in quiet contemplation and the worst case of sneezing and sniffling I’ve had in a long time). It was a continuation of a process that had begun just before Christmas. I took time to reflect on the past year and ask myself where I want to be in 1, 5 and 10 years and how I might get there. It was a rewarding experience and now, on Jan. 4, 2010, as I embrace more fully my brilliance as a speaker, writer, instructor and guide, and prepare to ‘take the show on the road’, I ask myself to do exactly what I ask my clients to do:
1) Tell the Universe what you want (in a positive, ‘I AM POSSIBLE and DESERVING’ voice.)
2) Make a commitment to yourself and the manifestation of your goal.
3) Stay focused on your rich vision.
4) Take empowering action toward your goal everyday, and in every possible way.
5) Allow yourself to receive all that you ask for.
6) Be grateful for everything.
7) Acknowledge yourself.
8) Celebrate each and every achievement.
With those Law of Attraction principles set in motion I fully realize and accept that the Universe has many forms of showing me the way, and that each moment on the path is beautiful and perfect if I choose to see it like that. As Pema Chodron says, “To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh.”
What BIG, BOLD idea, dream, goal is inspiring you? What actions will you take to see it manifest?
And so it is.
Today I am grateful for big dreams, big actions and big results, unexpected colds that keep me at home, a clean and clutter-free office,
my support team (visible and invisible), hours and hours of music, candlelight, Yogi Tea, my book agent, editor and publisher, my motivational speaking gigs, an abundance of weekly clients, and smiles from strangers.
Thank YOU. Breathe peace!
