There is an amazing example of someone who has really mastered the Art of Allowing, a person who truly seems to be in complete alignment with Source energy and often speaks about manifestation to the people he's trying to help. I'm talking about Ceasar Milan, "The Dog Whisperer." If you follow the teachings of Abraham, I highly recommend watching this show which is on every Friday on the National Geographic Channel.
If you've never seen the show, this man, Ceasar Milan, travels around the country helping dog owners with their pet's behavior problems. He has an amazing connection with dogs because he completely understands dog psychology and how these animals sense and use energy to communicate and how different energy results in different behaviors. In pretty much all of the cases, its the humans that are screwing up the dogs. So Ceasar comes in to rehabilitate the dogs and to train the humans to use the correct energy to communicate and interact with their pets. The key to everything he does is energy.
Ceasar teaches people to live in the now. Don't dwell on the past, don't worry about incidents that happened in the past, stay focused on the present and what is happening right now. He often tells people to manifest how they want their home lives with their pets to be, to manifest the kind of behavior they want from their animals. In any situation, Ceasar remains calm and relaxed. He stresses to use calm, assertive energy at all times. In other words, he is always ok with where he's at. That is key to successful manifestation.
I saw an episode today where he was helping a woman who had many health problems that were causing her pain and alot of anxiety. Her nervous energy was causing aggressive behavior in her dog. Not only was he able to completely transform the dog, he helped the woman by introducing her to acupuncture and meditation. How awesome is that! And he greeted her with Namaste, confirming my suspicions that Ceasar is a very spiritual man.
It is so awesome to see someone who is in such complete alignment with Source energy and to see him use that energy to connect with another living creature. Dog lovers love to watch Ceasar work his magic and people are simply amazed at how instantly these dogs react to him. To me, he is a great example of what being in alignment with your Inner Being really is. I think its absolutely wonderful that he's helping more humans find that alignment and using their beloved pets, who are by nature more in alignment with Source energy, to help them get there.

Wow, this last week was a rough one for me. I don't know about anyone else but for some reason, reaching for those good feeling thoughts became harder and harder. Most of it is just too personal to go into detail on the internet. Its just so difficult sometimes to stay happy and be OK with everything that's happening in your life when the people around you, the ones that you care about and want a good relationship with, are showing little regard for your feelings. The conflict becomes more complicated when these are people whom you must be interacting with because of the circumstances. When you don't have the freedom to escape an uncomfortable situation, those negative feelings of powerlessness, depression and desperation seem to just swallow you. Like getting caught in a whirlpool and being sucked in a downward spiral.
I've been trying lately to use meditation as a way to realign and connect with Source and those Non-Physical teachers and guides that are always there to help. But I just don't have it right yet. I know meditation is a powerful tool if you know how to use it. People can actually control things like their heart rate through meditation as well as healing themselves and this is an energy I really want to tap into.
My biggest problem with trying to meditate right now is that I guess I go too deep and fall asleep. I'll have to remember that the next time I get insomnia. But I'm trying to tune into something, not fall asleep!
So I guess this will require some more research on the subject besides just relaxing and breathing deeply. I really feel that meditation will greatly improve my Well-Being if I can learn to do it correctly. I would love and appreciate any help or suggestions on meditating.

As I study and learn more about the Law of Attraction and that we live in a vibrationally based Universe, it excites me when I watch shows on The Science Channel or National Geographic that deal with things like quantum physics and energy. Because the closer we get to understanding the truth, the more it seems to make sense that sometimes we must unlearn what we know in order to advance.
Throughout history, science and religion have butted heads in the ultimate struggle to understand and explain our world and the meaning of life. How did we get here? Why are we here, what is the meaning or purpose to all of this? And perhaps the biggest question of all, what happens to us after we die?
In the past and unfortunately, even now mainstream science and mainstream religion share the same distinct flaw. Their rigid, tunnel vision of stubbornly sticking to long held beliefs that everything is black or white. They both denounce the other as being a distraction from the truth. A serious minded scientist must dismiss the concept of God, of a higher power, an intelligent, conscious, loving energy source that deliberately creates in an eternal expansion. Religion has no room for science which continues to contradict the unquestioning faith that devout followers must uphold. Both have held their own resistance to new theories and ideas that actually delve into the gray area where the evolution of science and the concept of a higher power meet. The best scientists, in my opinion, are the ones that keep their minds open to all possibilities, including the ones that deal with the supernatural. Just within the last 100 years, there was much controversy over things like the existence of atoms, which today is simply a common fact that any middle school student would know. So what was once pseudo science, eventually becomes common, accepted knowledge. Often when major scientific discoveries are made, it changes and redefines everything we thought we knew about our world, about life, about reality. So therefore, reality is constantly changing as we know it. (Or as we think we know it.)
So, concepts like multiple universes, multiple dimensions, bending or folding the fabric of space and the concept that all matter is mostly empty space, help open our minds to allow more creative expressions of truth. To allow the concept of the improbable becoming probable. To allow the simplest theory, the credit it deserves, as Occam's razor suggests, even when that theory deals with the supernatural.

Its so nice to go someplace and get a dose of good, positive energy, to not only recharge yourself but to also bring your vibration back into alignment. Wherever you go to do this, the mountains, taking your dog to the park, going to church, a trip to the lake, walking along the beach, dinner with friends or just a quiet spot to watch the sunset, the location is irrelevant. What matters is how you feel while you're there. Do you come back feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, inspired? Do you come away with an intense appreciation for life? If the answer is yes, then this was time well spent.
Abraham uses the analogy of a river representing our fast paced lives. The current of life is always flowing, very fast, very strong. Its so easy to become overwhelmed by it, to panic at the velocity at which it sweeps you along. I find myself struggling to keep my head up, fearing that I'll be capsized, pulled under. The more overwhelmed I feel, the harder I start flailing, pushing against the current. As Abraham teaches, all too often, I find myself pointed upstream, fighting the current as I struggle through life with my disability. Now, with all that's going on with my personal life, I feel the fear and anxiety of not having enough money to survive and support my daughter and of having to rely so heavily on others just to get through my daily activities. As hard as it is, I know I have to let go of the negative emotions that I feel. Let go, be ok with where I am and slowly but surely turn downstream. So how do I do that?
I must stay focused on what I really want (freedom, independence, Well-Being, joy) and stop dwelling on what I don't want (poverty, paralysis, dependency). I need to stay connected to my Source (God). I need to see and appreciate Source in everything.
So here is a big thank you to the beautiful and inspirational people of last night's Tea Time with Mary. Thank you Rains and Desire for your words of inspiration and enthusiasm. And thank you Mary for sharing your beautiful inner light that we all find so infectious. You all helped me to boost my energy and raise my vibration. This inspired me to write this post, to hopefully pay it forward, to inspire.

One of my all-time favorite things to do is go outside at night and just look up. It never ceases to amaze me, just looking at the infinite beauty of our universe. There's not much to see in the night sky if you live in Vegas, where the neon drowns out all but the moon and about 5 stars. We usually trek out to Tecopa, CA if we want to stargaze. Not that you actually have to go that far away from Vegas to enjoy the night sky. But there are a group of eclectic folks out there that like to have "Star Parties" with expensive telescopes and some choice spirits. It usually starts with a snack at Pastels Bistro, the best (and only) gourmet cafe in this very small and unique town of massage therapy and natural hot springs. Our good friend John Muccio, an award winning five star chef, always welcomes us with some mouth watering treat. (John is in the red shirt, working in the kitchen with his son, Ryan) Each visit out there is a unique experience and has been known to end with some spiritual prayer in the Labyrinth and howling with the coyotes.
I grew up camping in the mountains of Wyoming. We used to sit around the campfire and watch for satellites, which look like a star that's steadily moving across the sky. I would sleep outside in the back of the truck, with just my face poking out of the down sleeping bag, gazing at the indescribable beauty above. The mountains are probably the best place to view the stars on a dark, moonless night when the sky seems like its bursting with millions of glittering jewels. Here, the Milky Way is so clearly obvious. The longer you sit there gazing upward, the more it dawns on you how immense, how incredibly endless the universe is. You also get a sense of how very small and insignificant this little planet is. Not to mention the concept of time. What does time matter when you're staring at eternity?
I only knew and could find a few constellations like the Big Dipper, the Little Dipper and Orion. My favorite spot in the sky was a small cluster of stars that to me, looked like a keyhole. I'm not sure why I was so drawn to this small cluster of stars, but when I looked at them, I would get this incredible feeling of awe. Many times I would imagine flying around between them in a spaceship. I didn't know what this group of stars were called, if they even had a name. I just considered them my special little group. Years later, I took astronomy 101 at ythe Community College in Las Vegas. I was looking through my new text book for class when I saw a picture that excited me so much I almost dropped the book. There was my group of stars! I couldn't believe it, out of the millions of stars in the sky, they had a picture of my group! I learned that these stars are called the Pleiades (the seven sisters) and they are located in the constellation of Taurus. My sign happens to be Taurus and I never had a clue that these stars were part of my Zodiac sign constellation. They are even more beautiful up close.
Whenever I get the chance to get away from the city lights, I look for the Pleiades. When I find it, I often wonder if there's anyone out there looking back at me.

You won't ever hear me complain about the heat hear in Las Vegas. Even though it gets quite unbearable during the daytime summer hours, I love the warm summer nights. After spending 17 years growing up in the frigid Wyoming winters, it was a bit like moving to paradise when I came here 22 years ago.
So what brought me to this most famous of cities in the desert? That will be explained in detail in my book. The autobiography of my most unusual life. I will mention it often here, because these thoughts that I write into words are helping me to manifest my desires into creation. Creating your life experiences through deliberate intent is a process that I'm still learning by reading a series of books by Abraham-Hicks. Powerful stuff. I found the first book in their series that I read, "Ask And It Is Given" at the library. I'm always drawn to the same section there, books on spirituality, psychics, mediums, ghosts, near death experiences, the afterlife, the paranormal. I was captivated by this book the moment I first started reading it. Mostly because it made so much sense while giving me chills and blowing my mind all at the same time. You just sense it when you have a book in your hands that will change your life. I was going to re-check it out because I wasn't quite finished by the due date but someone else had placed a hold on the book. The librarian was going to let me keep it so that I could finish reading it. But I wanted whoever was seeking this book to have the knowledge they were looking for. Besides that, its a book worth owning and reading many times. I now own 5 Abraham-Hicks books and am currently reading "The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent"
So back to fall in the desert. Its a wonderful time of year here. The weather is beautiful, perfect for a yard sale. My daughter and I will be leaving Las Vegas in a few months to head for Arizona. Another big change in my life that's both exciting and terrifying. What I need to do is release my resistance and let go of the fear. Right now, I will appreciate the weather and the beautiful sunset happening outside my window.

I've been thinking about creating this blog for several months now. All of our creations start out as thoughts, so its always exciting to see something manifest from thought. This blog will serve as an outlet for me to share and express my thoughts and hopefully inspire.
I first started blogging a year and a half ago, as a way to promote my online business. I sell home decor and furniture so I started a home decorating blog and launched my article marketing campaign by writing articles on decorating and designer home decor.
As I become more familiar with the world of blogging, I am truly amazed at the talent in writing that I find. These women take ordinary, everyday experiences they have with their husbands and kids and turn them into witty, often hilarious short stories. There are some great writers out there. These devoted family bloggers are also leaving a priceless treasure of written family history for future generations. How interesting it would be if blogging had been around during the 1800's. Can you imagine how fun reading blogs from "soiled doves" in Tombstone or " life on the wagon train" would have been?
I have a lot of respect and admiration for the talented women bloggers I have met and continue to discover every week. What excites me about creating this blog is I can finally be creative and express who I really am.
Life is an incredible journey and always changing. I felt a shift starting in my Inner Being (my spirit) a couple of years ago, as I was approaching what they call "middle age". I was raised with a Christian background. My family would occasionally attend the local Baptist church in the handful of small towns we lived in in Wyoming. However, I've never considered myself a religious person, more of a spiritual person with a strong belief in a higher power and a fascination with the many mysteries and wonders of the universe. A few years ago, I suddenly became extremely interested in life after death and all things paranormal. There were a few personal experiences that helped contribute to my growing desire to learn more about this subject, but it was also more than that. I had a life-altering experience at the age of 15. I broke my neck in an alcohol related car accident and became paralyzed from the chest down. My entire adult life has been filled with the challenges of living with a disability. So part of my interest in the spirit world came from a desire to know what my future (and all humans' futures) is going to be like when I'm free of the physical limitations plaguing me in this life. Not that I had become suicidal, I have an 11 year old beautiful daughter that I would never dream of leaving behind. I also have never lost my love of life. However, the disability, I could leave that behind in a heartbeat. I'm soooo over being paralyzed. Been there, done that, lets move on. I have gone on and lived life in the last 24 years since my accident. Did I finally accept life in a wheelchair as part of me? No way. Never have, never will. You can go on with your life and live it the best you can from a chair, but you never have to accept it as part of you if you don't want to. No offense to anyone else sitting in a chair that feels it is now part of them. Some people embrace disability as a part of what makes them who they are. This blog is not about trying to change anyone's mind or belief system. This is simply a place to share my own thoughts and experiences as I learn, expand and grow through my journey in this time and space. I turned 40 this year and I'm experiencing one of the most difficult transitions in my life. I'm about to become a single mom, actually, a single, disabled mom, as my 15 year relationship with my daughter's father is ending. My challenging life is suddenly about to become even more challenging, as I lose my partner, my best friend and most of my household income in one of the worst economies since the Great Depression.
The bright spot in my life right now is remembering who I really am. Feeling the shift in my Inner Being, bringing me closer to my spiritual, eternal self, balancing my energy, bringing me into alignment with my Source (God). The desires for more knowledge of a spiritual nature and a higher power have brought some amazing people and books into my life this year as well. Just in time, because this separation I'm going through would have been so much worse if I had not attracted this new knowledge into my life. As I begin to understand how this universal Law of Attraction works, I feel a new sense of hope knowing I can take an active role in the deliberate creation of the rest of my life's journey. One thing I have always held onto and always believed in is hope. Such a beautiful word.
I've also decided to write my story. I guess an autobiography. People have suggested this to me through the years, but it never really appealed to me because I'm an intensely private person. But perhaps sharing my experiences could serve a purpose. Maybe I could help someone struggling through hardships in their own life. I'm hoping to have my story published someday. I know at least one person on this Earth who would cherish it. My mother.
