What I Learned About Goal Achieving from a Purple Candle

This week we’re doing Experiment #2 from E-Squared by Pam Grout. As a group, we set out to explore the theory that
we impact the field of potentiality (FP) and draw from it based on our beliefs and expectations. Continue reading

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to E2

The very first experiment in my new favorite book, E2 by Pam Grout, tells us to ask for a blessing or unexpected gift from the “Field of Potentiality” (the FP) or God or the Universe or Infinite Intelligence or whatever higher power you believe in. You set a 48 hour limit and you ask for “a thumbs up, a clear sign, something that cannot be written off as coincidence.” Continue reading

Imagination IS Everything!

einstein“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

That quote comes from Albert Einstein, arguably the most intelligent man who ever lived. So, if the smartest man who ever lived said that, wouldn’t we be wise to not only read it, but remember it, internalize it and BELIEVE IT?

My area of interest in coaching (and in life!) is the mind; this extraordinary power we all possess, yet few utilize fully. Part of using the mind fully involves developing and exercising our imagination. This is a mental muscle which gets a lot of use and becomes very strong when we are children, but tends to atrophy as we grow older and “wiser.”

One of the simplest ways to strengthen our imagination is to fantasize. Spending just a few minutes a day fantasizing about what we want, evokes a creative energy that cannot be duplicated by any other means. Some people call this visualizing or visioning and all three terms are synonymous.

The key to effective visualizing is creating an emotion to go with the picture. In other words, you don’t just want to be able to “see yourself” driving the new car or living in the new home or loving the new partner, you want to imagine it so clearly that you stimulate FEELINGS to go with it. The pictures are great, but the feelings are the secret sauce.

But what if, like me, you have a difficult time actually seeing the picture? Maybe you’ve given it your best shot, but you’re coming up with a blank screen or a vague, fuzzy image. The only FEELING you’re going to produce while looking at a blank screen is frustration, so try this instead.

Use your IMAGINATION to fantasize about telling your friend…

  • you just bought that new car!
  • you finally bought your dream house on (not “at”, ON) the beach!
  • you have fallen madly, deeply, crazy in love with the perfect guy/gal!
  • you just booked a trip to Hawaii for your entire family!
  • your business is thriving to the point of needing to hire another assistant!
  • how amazing your life is, now that you’ve strengthened your IMAGINATION!

What would those conversations sound like? More importantly, what would those conversations FEEL like? (The exclamation points are a clue!)

Doing this type of “fantasizing” is every bit as effective as the type where you can actually see the picture. Both create FEELINGS; both elicit that emotional component required for swift creation. And both are simple ways to strengthen and develop what Albert Einstein referred to as EVERYTHING.

What You Appreciate Appreciates

This was the beautiful scene I enjoyed on Friday

This was the beautiful scene I enjoyed on Friday

That’s a quote from the book E2 by Pam Grout. This week my master mind partners and I are doing the last experiment, which is called “The Fish & Loaves Principle.”  The hypothesis is that
if I change my outlook and make a concerted effort to look for goodness, beauty and abundance, it will show up in spades”. Continue reading

Ask (or… just write it down) and It Is Given

We all know the phrase “Ask and it is given,” but this is a case of “Write it down and it is given.” I LOVE this story and I hope you will too!

A few months ago, my youngest daughter moved into her first apartment. After gathering up what furniture she had and collecting assorted pieces from friends and relatives, the only thing they needed was a kitchen table and chairs. My “dining room set” was really more of a kitchen set and I told her she could have it.

She was THRILLED, but worried what I would do without it. I said “With Jack away at school, I really don’t use it and even when he’s home, we usually eat in the kitchen. As long as I get a dining room table by Thanksgiving, we’ll be fine.” In my mind, I thought I would keep my eyes open for an inexpensive table and chairs to put in the dining room, before Thanksgiving.

A couple of weeks ago, when I realized it was almost October, it occurred to me that Thanksgiving was getting closer and I needed to start looking for that table. I wrote on my $25K Sheet “Look for dining room table,” because once something goes on that list, I know it will get done.

It says "Looking to get rid of my parents' antique dining room set......"

It says “Looking to get rid of my parents’ antique dining room set……”

About an hour (yup, just one hour!) later, while on Facebook, I noticed this post from a friend whom I haven’t seen in too many years. I could hardly believe it! I messaged her immediately, telling her I might be interested and asking how much she wanted for it. Her reply was “Well I’m asking $5,000, but for you it’s free!”

WHAT?!?!
Cut to the chase, Joanne is EXTREMELY funny (and generous!) and she was truly just wanting to get it out of her garage and basement and was happy to give it to me.

It gets better!

She said I should come over and look at it, to make sure I liked it. I asked her if this was the table that she grew up with and she said it was. I told her I didn’t need to see it. I said “Joanne, you’re Italian (I’m guessing she already knew that) and I’ve been at Italian dining room tables. And I know how much love and laughter and food and wine has been around that table. I would be honored to bring it, and all that beautiful energy into my home! 

Dining Room

But it still gets better!

28 years ago, when I got married, my parents gave us a beautiful set of Lenox china. When I got divorced and moved here, that beautiful china went in the WAY back of my laundry room closet, where it has stayed for eight years. It wasn’t until I was dusting out the china cabinet that I even remembered I had china. O…M…G!!!

So in addition to the beautiful “Italian Table” energy, I also have the beautiful “Gift from my Parents” energy in this home now!

Isn’t that a GREAT story? And isn’t this a BEAUTIFUL dining room set? Heck, I just might throw a dinner party! Did I mention it comes with not one, not two, but three leaves! I could comfortably fit 20 people at this table! And the coolest part is, I didn’t even have to ask…and it was given. Seriously, does it get any better than that?

What’s in a Name?

Hard for me to believe, but it has been nearly seven years since I started Mind Over Matter Coaching.  Seven years since I took a GIANT leap of faith to leave behind a career that I loved in the medical field, to become a coach. Continue reading

The Law of Attraction is a Three-Step Process

There are three steps involved with the Law of Attraction; just three.
Despite what skeptics believe, it really is this simple.  It does take time~ not to learn it, but to manifest what we desire.  However, nothing is too big or too far or too difficult for the Universe to deliver, as long as we follow these three steps… and have faith in the process.

A Tale of Two Clients

We’ve all probably heard the saying “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”  How about “When the teacher is ready, the student appears”?  Or more accurately, “When the teacher is ready, the student teaches.”   Continue reading

Jeez Louise, Where Are Those Keys?!?!?!

I know, understand and actually help others understand the importance and the power of our thoughts.
I know, understand and actually help others understand we cannot attract what we do want when we are thinking, feeling and obsessing about what we don’t want or don’t have.
I know that, but last week I had a really hard time doing that.   Continue reading
