“Creating a life you love doesn’t take place all at once…it’s a series of baby steps.

Ellerbrock, psychiatrist

“You are meant to succeed, and failure should feel bad to you. Life is supposed to go well for you—and when it does not— there is something wrong. But what is wrong is not something that is outside of you over which you have no control. What is wrong is within you, and you do have control.

Most people are saying, “Okay, I want that, and I am not fulfilled until I get that manifestation.” The reason for that promise of manifestation out there, to begin with, is that it gives you the reason to play the game in the inner reality.

“Is that fabrication? It may appear contrived, but it is a beginning. If you were to e address by the Angel who walks with you, what would you want it to say? How would you want it to begin contact with you?

“From time to time it’s fun to close your eyes, and in that dark say to yourself, “I am the sorcerer, and when I open my eyes I shall see a world that I have created, and for which I and only I am completely responsible.” Slowly then, eyelids open like curtains lifting stage-center.

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”~ Arthur C. Clarke, English science fiction writer

“Most people believe if they “have” a thing (more time, money, love – whatever), then they can finally “do” a thing (write a book, start a hobby, a relationship…), which will allow them to “be” a thing (happy, peaceful, content, in love…). In actuality, they are reversing the Be-Do-Have paradigm. In the universe as it really is, “havingness” does not produce “beingness”, but the other way around. First you “be” the thing called “happy” (or “knowing”, “wise”, “compassionate”…), then you start “doing” things from this place of beingness – and soon you discover that what you are doing winds up bringing you the things you’ve always wanted to “have”. The way to set this creative process (and that’s what this is…the process of creation) into motion is to look at what it is you want to “have”, ask yourself what you think you would “be” if you “had” that, then go right straight to being.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch

“The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet, getting more and more of the way you feel.” ~ Abraham, channeled by Esther Hicks

“(1) Slip into the gap. This means to center yourself in that silent space between thoughts… (2) There, release your intentions and desires… Releasing your intentions and desires in the gap means planting them in the fertile ground of pure potentiality,
and expecting them to bloom when the season is right. (3) Remain in the state of self-referral. This means remain established in the awareness of your true Self – your spirit, your connection to the field of pure potentiality. It also means not to look at yourself through the eyes of the world, or allow yourself to be influenced by the opinions and criticisms of others. (4) Relinquish your attachment to the outcome. This means giving up your rigid attachment to a specific result and living in the wisdom of uncertainty. It means enjoying every moment in the journey of your life, even if you don’t know the outcome. (5) Let the universe handle the details. Your intentions and desires, when released in the gap, have infinite organizing power. Trust that infinite organizing power
of intention to orchestrate all the details for you. Remember that your true nature is one of pure spirit. Carry the consciousness of your spirit wherever you go, gently release your desires, and the universe will handle the details for you.” ~ Deepak Chopra

“When you dream, all the scenery, characters, events, perils, and outcomes are built from your own consciousness, the darks and oppressions as well as the delights. Same with the world awake, though it takes you longer to build it.” ~ Richard Bach

“Uncertainty is the fertile ground of pure creativity and freedom. Uncertainty means stepping into the unknown in every moment of our existence. The unknown is the field of all possibilities, ever fresh, ever new, always open to the creation of new manifestations. Without uncertainty and the unknown, life is just the stale repetition of outworn memories. You become the victim of the past, and your tormentor today is your self left over from yesterday. Relinquish your attachment to the known, step into the unknown, and you will step into the field of all possibilities. In your willingness to step into the unknown, you will have the wisdom of uncertainty factored in. This means that in every moment of your life, you will have excitement, adventure, mystery. You will experience the fun of life – the magic, the celebration, the exhilaration, and the exultation of your own spirit.” ~ Deepak Chopra

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” ~ Walt Disney

“Enlightenment means literally aligning to the Energy of my Source. And genius is only about focusing. Law of Attraction takes care of everything else. Physical humans often want to make enlightenment about finding some process and moving through the process that has been pre-described. But true enlightenment is moving to the rhythm of the internal inspiration that is coming in response to the individual desire. Enlightenment is about allowing my connection to the Source that is me for the fulfillment of the things that I have individually defined here in my time/space reality. That’s as good as it gets!” ~ Abraham, channeled by Esther Hicks

“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence, nor imagination, nor both together, go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” ~ Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“Passion acts like a magnet that attracts us to its source. We are drawn to people who radiate with passion, who live with passion, who breathe with passion. Your passion is your true power. The more you discover and express your passion for life, the more irresistible you will become to others.” ~ Barbara De Angelis

“Be a lamp to yourself. Be your own confidence. Hold to the truth within yourself, as to the only truth.” ~ Buddha

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.” ~ Hermann Hesse, German writer, philosopher

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us “universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein,

“Whether the matter is large or small, whether the choice is major or minor, there is only one question to consider: Is this Who I Really Am? Is this who I now choose to be? Every act is an act of self-definition. Everything you think, say, and do declares, “This is Who I Am.”” ~ Neale Donald Walsch, American writer, from “Conversations With God”

“Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.” ~ Buddha
