I’m not talking about being a billionaire (though some of you might want that, and there’s that aspect of this too!) but I am talking about how much different your life would look and feel if in some ways you were free from ideas that there just isn’t enough of certain things to go around.

Do you believe you have a limited number of opportunities? Limited amount of money that will ever come to you? Limited relationship prospects? Limited ideas?

Its something I have seen everyone I know struggle with in some way- even billionaires!- and so, today, its time some expansive design ideas about  overcoming scarcity.

Imagine how much more energy and time and resources you could have to both enjoy your life and help others less fortunate if, indeed, there really was enough good stuff to go around?!

First of all, etymology- the study of the history and origins of our modern language- is fascinating.  After all, if you believe in evolution, bits of that evolution reveal themselves in language.

When my friend Joe called yesterday from Colorado, he shared a facinating story of many words with me that shifted my perspective on how I speak and the things I say.  Look up the etymology of words like CULTURE and COMPASSION and you will see this multilayered history of cults and suffering mixed with the rarefied joy of merging lives and celebration.

The big word he shared with me was FOCUS.  Here is the actual etymology of the word focus:

focus (n.)
1640s, from Latin focus “hearth, fireplace” (also, figuratively, “home, family”), of unknown origin, used in post-classical times for “fire” itself, taken by Kepler (1604) in a mathematical sense for “point of convergence,” perhaps on analogy of the burning point of a lens (the purely optical sense of the word may have existed before Kepler, but it is not recorded). Introduced into English 1650s by Hobbes. Sense transfer to “center of activity or energy” is first recorded 1796.

FOCUS means HOME!!!!!  And so, in honor of the history of the word, here are a few ways to use your HOME to help you to FOCUS! Continue Reading…

Welcome to the streets of Los Angeles, ablaze in inspirational quotes.  How much fun it is to hear the poetry sing from street signs!

My friend Leslie sent this to me yesterday.  Perhaps it is not just an actual SIGN.  Maybe it is a omen-like SIGN from the universe?

Had I been waiting for a sign?!

Are you waiting for a sign that some great force in the universe is listening to you and looking out for you? Are you waiting for that divine guidance to swoop down and show you that you are on the right track?

While I’m all for signs and mesages and confirmations in a spirit sense, today’s science is all about how we create our world with out brain based on the supernatural signs we expect to see!  Understanding this brain function— the part of the brain that sees “signs” and omens and seredipitously finds information for us that we are seeking— can actually help you to create more of what you want in every day!

puppy love

Welcome to my fur children! If you are new here, these guys are so important to my life, it defies words to explain it.

Yesterday, momentary calamity struck.

My worst nightmare flashed before my eyes.

I had been going back and forth with the owner of my building on an issue with the front lock of my house.  She calimed it was the 100 degree weather that was making the lock of the front door stick.  I let it go, but with concern.  I mean, I am all feng shui and here I am with a lock to my front door that is haphazard at best.  It always seemed to finally lock and I didn’t think it was worth a huge battle to have it fixed… and I was told I couldnt have a locksmith come on my own.

I thought it was locked… but apparently, yesterday, it stuck… unlocked.  Continue Reading…

When you are organized, people can feel it radiate from you.  I am serious.  You can feel disorder.  People can feel your own disorder.

None of this is necessary.  Disorganization is self-sabotage.  And we are into building here, not destroying.

Chaos, confusion, energy blocks: they show up in your face, in your eyes and in your ability to  express yourself clearly.

I want you to glow.  And I bet you want you to glow, too!

Here’s a whole lot you need to know about organization from a super-pro, Melinda Massie.

Get organized… and you will glow!  Continue Reading…

happiness

It is pretty hard to be excited about a day when you feel miserable.  While you don’t have to be Level 10 bouncing-off-the-walls exuberant every minute of life, there are definitive values to happiness.

People who identify as “very happy people”  tend to have lower levels of degerative stress hormones, better immune systems and, therefore, less illness.  Happy people tend to be more fulfilled and more able to love.  Yeah, this is big stuff.  And, if you feel like suffering is a pre-requisite for success, that’s not quite so. Research has been revealing that  those who choose happiness tend to make more money.  

We all hear that “happiness is a choice” in the New Agey circles, but if you’ve ever sat down and just felt blank, bored or stuck in a space that you don’t want to be and try to “choose happiness”  you know it isn’t just quite that easy. It’s like telling someone to “get out of their own way.”  These words are so easy to say, but so abstract that they really mean nothing if they can’t be applied.

If you know me, you know I love science and philosophy as gets mixed into life.  Today, here is some science about how happiness works… and a few practical ways to “choose happiness” today! Continue Reading…
