Eliminate the Root Cause of What’s Blocking You with Intuitive Danielle MacKinnon
by Bob Olson

I’m so thrilled to share my latest reading with you. It happens to be a rather personal experience, but I’m willing to share it because I believe this type of reading has the potential to change lives. In fact, I genuinely trust that a session like this holds the power to awaken us to our soul’s plan.  

In my case, this reading helped me to eliminate the root cause of a hidden obstacle in my life. This obstacle had been subconsciously blocking me from fulfilling a long-awaited goal, yet I wasn’t even aware of its presence. Of course this is why subconscious blocks can be so destructive, because they can hold us back for years without us having any clue that they exist. Yet it took only one reading with intuitive Danielle MacKinnon to bring what was blocking me to my awareness. I was then quickly on my way to fulfilling my passion—now unencumbered by what had been holding me back.

Make New Determinations: Be What You Want to Be! 
by Paramahansa Yogananda

The following excerpts are from a talk given by Paramahansa Yogananda at the International Headquarters of the society he founded, Self-Realization Fellowship, on New Year’s Eve, 1934. The entire talk is published in Journey to Self-realization, Volume III of Paramahansa Yogananda’s Collected Talks and Essays.  (Self-Realization Fellowship, copyright © 1997, Los Angeles; reprinted with permission.)

Make new determinations as to what you are going to do and what you are going to be in this next year. Set a program for yourself; carry it through, and you will find how much happier you will be. Failure to keep to your schedule of improvement means you have paralyzed your will. You have no greater friend and no greater enemy than yourself. If you befriend yourself, you will find accomplishment. There is no law of God preventing you from being what you want to be and accomplishing what you want to accomplish. Nothing detrimental that happens can affect you unless you sanction it.

What Matters to You?
by Heather Marie Wilson

Planting the seed of focus in your life involves becoming clear about what your values are. What matters to you? What do you hold in high regard? What do you respect and require in your life? What can’t you live without (or with)?

Your core values are the things you rate most crucial in your life. They’re what influence the choices you make, the way you behave, the kinds of people you choose to interact with, and the way you spend your time. So would you say that beauty, freedom, love, abundance, or productivity are most important to you? Or do you prefer to have fun or pay attention to detail? However you respond, note that your Life Garden should always reflect the essence of your core values, so cultivating relationships with whatever you hold dear is at the bedrock of a healthy Garden. Exploring your values is also a good way to tap into the essence of who you are right now.

The Speed of Life and What it Means to YOU!  
by Tony Jeary

The speed of life is a global condition that presents a strategic challenge for everyone. The speed of life combines excessive amounts of unrefined information with a glut of choices and opportunities and presents itself in the form of confusion and distraction! How well we function within this constant condition determines value, competitive advantage and the ability to create results that will convert a vision or a dream into reality. These issues are always important but in tough economic times they are absolutely critical to success.

The speed of life can't be stopped but it can be understood and leveraged in a positive way. It is a fact that knowledge and information have always been a cornerstone of power, influence and achievement! However, the speed of life generates so much information it creates distractions that unwittingly lead people into well-intentioned busyness. It is a form of busyness that marginalizes results. The solution is to identify and deploy high leverage activities that harness the right information at the right time and focus on action that will move the results needle!

Mind Weeds Will Strip You of Your Dreams
by Lisa Whatley  

Many years ago when I first began my search for truth - before I knew that we are the creator of our lives - I sought advice from psychics; seeking what my future would hold, hoping they would give me a glimpse at some sort of fantasy life, perhaps wave a magic wand and create a deliciously new life for me; a life that I myself hadn’t even had time to envision!

Divine Do-Gooding
by Kimberly Wilson

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. — Margaret Mead

Doing good is no longer just for the bleeding hearts, but rather is a way of living. I love the notion of do-gooding and find it akin to breathing, bathing, and being. You cannot escape the continuous reminders to go green, be socially responsible, or save the planet. Our culture is infused with a sense of urgency to make a difference through our daily actions, decisions, and dollars. This section is full of ideas on how you can leave a lovely legacy not only by being you but also by reaching beyond yourself.

Addressing Our Economy With Spirit 
by Dr. Trish Whynot

The worst thing that could happen to our economy–and to ourselves—is to allow economics to rule our souls. Joy feeds our souls and when times are tough or scary, the first menu items to go are often those that bring us the most joy. Even when these items don’t cost anything, our tendency is to go into self-deprivation mode. We tell ourselves that we don’t have time for the things that bring us joy because we are too busy trying to survive. Our fear says we must choose between survival and joy. While that may seem the “logical” solution, starving our souls won’t heal our economy.

Visualize Prosperity 
by Shakti Gawain

A very important part of the whole creative visualization process is developing a sense of prosperity. This means having the understanding, or consciously taking the point of view, that the universe is abundant, that life is actually trying to bring us what our hearts and souls truly desire — spiritually, mentally, emotionally, as well as physically. Almost everything you truly need or want is here for the asking; you only need to believe that it is so, truly desire it, and be willing to accept it.

The Sky Is Falling: Or Is It?: A Metaphysical Perspective As The Stock Market Plunges And Unemployment Rises
by Psychic Medium Carole Lynne

It is October 2008 and when we turn on our televisions sets, our radios and our computers, we hear all about the failing financial markets around the world. We ask ourselves, “How is it possible that some bad mortgage deals in the United States are causing financial markets to plunge around the world? Why is gasoline so expensive and jobs so few?” In the next months and years, many books will be written by experts who will give their views on how and why the stock market fell in October of 2008 and how unemployment increased all during the year. And while these experts will give us many facts and figures to ponder, many of us are interested in looking at what is happening from a metaphysical and spiritual perspective.

Celebrate Freedom
by Marlene Buffa

Recorded history focuses on government and spans time by ticking the meter of war. From as early as the Bronze Age, one of the first recorded conflicts arose in Greece, popularly known as the Trojan War. As we study world history, we notice that most wars arose from either greed or confinement. Man rebels when he seeks to conquer more of what lies outside of himself, and also when what abides within him seeks liberation. Similarly, our spiritual selves rebel when we perceive limitation imposed on us by others, or deliberate harm inflicted through violation of boundaries. Our nature, as inhabitants of the earth and spiritual beings, treasures freedom from outside intruders and also from our self-imposed limitations.

Having Money
by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer
 
Money is neither good nor bad; it is energy. It is the way money is used that determines whether or not it is a positive energy that will benefit you and others. If you come from the highest level of integrity with your money, if you make it in ways that benefit people, through shifting their consciousness, or through serving and making a contribution, by giving your best, honoring others, and putting attention and consciousness into what you do, you are making a contribution to humanity and to yourself. When you use money in ways that serve your higher purpose and bring you and others joy, you are creating money of light. The more money is made and spent with integrity and light, the more it becomes a force of light for everyone.

Opening To Abundance: Opening Your Heart
by Dr. Trish Whynot

When you really let yourself feel Love, you feel a presence in your heart. From there you have a choice to brush it off or breathe it in. When you choose to breathe it in, it just glows like an ember glows when you blow on it. It fills you and takes you to heavenly heights.

Sense of Gratitude: One Woman's Prayer of Appreciation
by Marlene Buffa

Every morning, I take a walk for a half hour. I usually follow the same route through my neighborhood and greet the same neighbors and dogs on their daily ritual, as well. I use my walk as a time of reflection and preparation for my day. I honor myself with time for prayer and gratitude so that my day begins with a focus and perspective which serves to buoy my spirit in the sea of rough water and tides of daily life. Rarely do I make frivolous requests of spirit, or even ask for guidance. Rather, I begin my day with gratitude by recounting all my blessings and inviting more good into my life.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
by Deepak Chopra

When ancient peoples considered the vastness of the universe, they felt something very surprising, they felt connected, a spiritual connection cannot be seen or touched, yet we have a way to verify invisible things by using a faculty more powerful and reliable than the five senses—consciousness.

Love it or Lose -- Passions and the Quest for Meaning
by Jerry Porras, Stewart Emery and Mark Thompson

Much is said today about the importance of loving what you do, but most people simply don't buy it. Sure, it would be nice to do what you love, but as a practical matter, most people don't feel they can afford such a luxury. For many, doing something that really matters to them would be a sentimental fantasy based on wishful thinking.

Life Organizing: A Completely New Way to Flow with Time

If so, the more traditional approaches to managing your life and structuring your days can hog-tie you, forcing you to relinquish the skills most needed in today’s world – like intuition, emotional intelligence, creativity, and big-picture thinking.

Dare To (Not) Compare: One Secret To Aligning With Your Highest Potential
by Jeffrey Brownstein

I was talking with a friend today. We were having this nice, empowering conversation, sharing ideas - and then we started analyzing another mutual acquaintance (already sound familiar?). Nothing terrible, but my friend astutely pointed out when our focus started slipping more toward the other person's shortcomings, and suggested we shift the discussion back to our own affairs. I, of course, being a (sometimes defensive!) Law of Attraction coach tried to validate the merits of our digression, saying there was no malice in our words - that we were just using the other person's behavior as a vehicle for learning. Thankfully, my friend wasn't completely buying in.

Glorious Living! Guidelines For Mastering The Art Of Contentment
by Steve Morris

"Poor is not the person who has too little, but the person who craves more." ~ Lucious Annaeus Seneca

We live in a consumer driven society. Studies show consumerism is up and it is not likely it will slow. Bigger, better, faster. We aim to buy the latest model plasma TV, the fastest designer car, the biggest house, latest phone, computer or MP3 player and almost instantly the model we have strived so hard to possess gets superceded and the process repeats itself.

“Financial” Matters
by Dr. Trish Whynot

Money issues are encountered by many on their journey toward self-discovery. Be it financial lack or difficulty enjoying the money you have, money struggles are most often not the “real” issue. Money is an energy and a financial issue is a messenger … it is an indicator … it is a symptom. Financial lack can indicate a depleted state—an imbalance with your giving and receiving. It manifests as more money going out than is coming in. Financial lack can also be indicating issues with value, self-worth or image. Financial struggles can be presenting a message that you have placed too much weight on money. If you place your safety and security on how much money you have in the bank, you have given it too much weight and spending money could be frightening, even if you have an abundance of it. These are but a few messages that your financial matters could be attempting to bring you.

The 5 Hindrances Of The Mind: Are They Blocking Your Self-Esteem?
by Deborah Shipley

The issue of self-esteem is perhaps one of the greatest determinates in creating a life of freedom and abundance, or feeling inhibited and “just getting by“. Self-esteem is defined as “a feeling of pride in oneself“. It is how you feel in relation to yourself rather than how others see you. It’s between you and, well… you. Therefore, it’s not necessary to be so concerned about what others think to determine your level of self -esteem, as the definition does not include any “others“, just you. So where can you help yourself to better understand you? There are so many aspects of you but one that is of great importance is that of your mind.

The Art Of Receiving
by Sharon Warren


Receiving: verb (r-sving)
To admit; to take in; to hold; to contain; to have capacity for; to be able to take in. To allow or to accept.

 
Recently, four of us were celebrating the January birthdays of two girlfriends at a Scottsdale restaurant. We had a wonderful lunch, followed by going to see Calendar Girls. I arrived at the theater first and purchased my ticket. I had no idea that Birthday Girl #1 wanted to gift each of us movie tickets. Friend #3 was having “receiving” issues, sputtering in protest, “It’s your birthday and you shouldn’t be buying tickets for us!”  I responded, “It is her joy to give and you are taking away her happiness if you don’t receive this.”  She got it instantly—and accepted the gift graciously.

The result is that we don’t see the keys where we don’t expect them to be.

Making Peace With Money
by Linda Marks, Steve Fahrer and Barry Goldwater

Do you know anyone that is totally comfortable with their relationship with money? Talking about money is a social taboo. And we often avoid looking at our financial issues when we are by ourselves. Money is our culture's most loaded concept. Many people are more comfortable talking about their sex lives than their financial issues. Wealthy, poor or making ends meet, rarely is anyone satisfied with their financial position.

Six Thinking Hats: An Essential Approach to Business Management  
by Edward de Bono

An antelope grazing in Africa hears a sound in the grass. Immediately all the neuronal clusters concerned with danger are preactivated so the lion is recognized as soon as it emerges from the grass, and the antelope is able to escape. Such presensitization is a key part of how the brain works and why it is so efficient.

The Art of SpeedReading People: Harness the Power of Personality Type and Create What You Want in Business  
by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger

People come in all shapes and sizes, and, certainly, every person is unique. But you'll probably agree that some people are much more alike than others. And behavior that may seem random is, in fact, quite understandable and often even predictable, once you understand that person's inborn, natural personality, or genetic blueprint, if you will, which describes basic psychological characteristics. And one's personality is by far the best and most reliable predictor of behavior.

Making a Life, Making a Living™: 
Reclaiming Your Purpose and Passion in Business and in Life 
Make Happiness A Habit
by Mark Albion

A Personal Odyssey.

The rainy morning of June 5, 1986, was the high point of my thirty-five-year-old life—or so it seemed at the time. I was full of anticipation, and no downpour could dampen my spirits. That afternoon I was scheduled to pick up a gleaming new black Jaguar, my first drop-dead trophy purchase. It said, "Okay, world, look at me. On top! In heaven!"

Show Me The Money: Abundance, Holism and the New Economy
by Cris McCullough, M.A., C.P.H.C.

What is the natural flow of abundance in your life? You might begin to answer that question by noting what kind of car you drive, how much money you have in your pocket or in the bank, or how you rate on "the ladder of success." Or you might count the number of friends you have, the sense of contentment you feel after a hard days work or the amount of time you spend with your kids.  Obviously the idea of "abundance" can mean different things to different people, yet, initially we think of it in terms of money.

The Thinker's Way: Create the Life You Want
Transform Yourself Through Thinking
by John Chaffee

You are an artist, creating your life portrait, and your paints and brushstrokes are the choices you make each day. How do you feel about the portrait you have created so far? Have you defined yourself as the person you always wanted to be, or are you a "work in progress"? Are you achieving your full potential as a human being, "actively exercising your soul's powers"—the ancient Greek definition of happiness (eudaemonia)? Or do you feel frustrated, incomplete, unfulfilled, and uncertain how to capture the meaning that you most desire in your life?

From Darkness Into Light
by John Alexandrov


Have you ever heard the expression, "the Truth will set you free?" It seems so simple doesn't it? Live an honest lifestyle with integrity, help other people, be kind and loving and our lives will be wonderful in every way. Although this sounds like Heaven, many Lightworkers keep running into the same obstacle. I continually hear, "I would love to be a full time_____________________ (you fill in the blank, Soul Coach, Reiki Master, Hypnotherapist, etc.), but I just don't have the money," or "I would love to lead a more contemplative simple life, but where would the money come from?"

Based on the heartwarming book written by Enid Bangoid, the film starred a teenage Elizabeth Taylor in her first leading role as Velvet Brown, a young English girl determined to transform an ordinary horse she'd won in a raffle into a racehorse.

Working In The Subtle Realm Of Thought
by Asoka Selvarajah, Ph.D

The spiritual realm is the world of Causes. The manifest material world, that is so familiar to us through our senses, is the world of Effects. Thought always precedes manifestation in the material world. All that is manifest in the material world, whether in nature or man-made, was first a thought; a grand design.

Manifesting: Create Your Own Reality
by Nisandeh Neta (based on text by Richard Mark-Coates)

I've experimented with conscious manifesting techniques for 13 years now.
For 5 years I have taught others the tools that I myself have learned in a course called 'Manifesting Results'. Some people come to the course with a preconception that I'm going to teach them how to manifest. The bad news is that I'm not going to do that. The good news is that you already DO manifest everything in your life. You always have.

When Money Isn't Enough: How Women are Finding the Soul of Success
by Connie Glaser and Barbara Steinberg Smalley

"My entire life is work," she admits. "In my quest for success, I have neglected family and friends, and when I look at who I've become, I don't particularly like what I see. All of my hard work and the tangible rewards it's brought me have not given me the joy and peace of mind I thought they would. Sure, on the outside, I appear successful. But I keep wondering, "Is this all there is?'"

Doing The Work That You Love
by Vered (Tanmayo) Neta

As a child, I remember my father, sitting in his room, surrounded by his books, writing. His work was his love. Later in his life, when most people have retired, he was up early in the morning, busy with his work. It gave him a meaning to life and kept him young.

Between The Lines: Nine  Principles To

Cars and trucks zoomed past me as I stood on the shoulder of the I–75 entrance ramp, less than a mile from the entrance to BG (Bowling Green State University). The wind whipped through my hair and tugged at my jacket. I squinted from the dust that kicked up in my face. Standing there with my thumb in the air, hoping for a ride, I had never felt this hopeless. Never.

My yard is on a busy through street in the town where I live. All of a sudden a red truck pulled into the driveway and a handsome young man got out of the car and walked toward me.

Do What You Are: Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type
by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger

It's important to find the right job. Despite the universal fantasies of winning the lottery, buying expensive cars and homes, and doing fascinating work with interesting people in exotic places, the sober reality is that most of us have to work, hard, for a long time. If you spend forty to fifty years—not an unlikely scenario—working at jobs you'd rather not be doing, you are in truth throwing away a large part of your life. This is unnecessary and sad, especially since a career you can love is within your reach.

7 Lies That Prevent Powerful Results
by Kathy Gates

Everyone has something in their life that they would like to change. Nobody's life circumstances and environment are perfect. But what do you tend to tell yourself about these circumstances? Often it's easy to fix blame on others. Consider, however, that your feelings are not caused by your cranky boss, or the construction on the street, or your inconsiderate friend;  but rather your feelings are caused by what you tell yourself about your circumstances.

Rich Dad's Rich Kid, Smart Kid: Giving Your Children a Financial Headstart
by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon L. Lechter C.P.A.

Both my dads were great teachers. Both men were smart men. But they were not smart in the same subjects, and they did not teach the same things. Yet as different as they were, both dads believed the same things about all kids. Both dads believed that all kids are born smart and all kids are born rich. Both believed a child learns to be poor and learns to believe that he or she is less smart than other kids. Both dads were great teachers because they believed in bringing out the genius that each child is born with. In other words, they did not believe in putting knowledge in, they believed in bringing the child's genius out.

In the second half of the twentieth century, the key to understanding America's social and economic life was the Organization Man. In the first half of the twenty-first century, the new emblematic figure is the free agent—the independent worker who operates on his or her own terms, untethered to a large organization, serving multiple clients and customers instead of a single boss.

Each of us has played out the beliefs from childhood about deservability and money to create whatever we have in our lives right at this moment.

Simply put, energy from the formless realm is constantly flowing into the material world and taking form. This energy is limitless and inexhaustible.

How The Light Wins Every Battle For You 
by Guy Finley

 
The true spiritual battle occurs in the "dark" of us, a contest between the light of our wish to be better than the bitterness in us, or higher than some heartache or hatred dragging us down. Whatever its nature, this struggle is between forces that are dark and denying and those light and affirming. The ground fought upon is for possession of our interior; to the victor go the spoils.
