Visualize to Ignite Your Passions

Ready for some fun?

I’m getting exciting feedback on the passion blogs.  I’ve been told, though, to keep the blogs short and sweet.   I encourage you to remain open to some of the suggestions in these next blogs.

The past two weeks you have identified and ranked your seven passions.   Now it is time to ignite your passions into existence by visualizing.  When you visualize, your brain starts to make new pathways of thinking.   All the good athletes visualize their success daily, and the accomplished visualizers make it to the top.   Jim Carrey, the actor, credits his success to his constant visualization.  You can google “famous people that visualize.”  It is amazing.


The steps below will help you get a clear picture of your passions.  Then, BOOM, watch what happens.

Sticky Note Journal Week 1

OK, it is week 1 of the Sticky Note Journaling Series.   This week your goal is to write everyday on one sticky note 5 things you are grateful for.   It can be simple such as a great cup of coffee for breakfast or something bigger.   Don’t think too much about it.  Just let it flow.   So, at the end of the week, you could potentially have 35 things you are grateful for.   And, oh, you can repeat things from previous days.
You can choose to keep the sticky note or tear it into shreds.
Here is a wonderful article on scientifically proven benefits of expressing gratitude.  From Psychology Today
And, if you are on Pinterest, check out my board of fun sticky notes.  Pinterest Board
Have a great week.

Making Your Mind Matter

Let’s Go Back 20 Years in Mind and Body.

You CAN do this, you know. The mind is very powerful.  I can’t say I am living proof, but there have been experiments done where groups of individuals have retreated for several weeks from society.  They lived and breathed as if they were 20 years younger.   After a short period of time, they were playing football, tennis, etc. like they did when they were much younger.  Their fingers even grew.   Dr. Joe Dispenza talks about this experiment in his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.  In his book he emphasizes you are not doomed by your genes and hardwired to be a certain way for the rest of your life. A new science is emerging that empowers all human beings to create the reality they choose.  About Dr. Joe Dispenza
