Is Reiki Legit?

 

Originally published May 11, 2011

It’s important to always be testing every healing modality for efficacy. When I started learning Reiki, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It is a practice, like yoga, meditation or work. The more you practice in your area, the more efficient you become. Now, as a Reiki Master, I am able to use my Reiki for all types of positive change in my life. So, is Reiki legit? Yes! Absolutely! To define Reiki… it’s healing through intention.

Reiki is being practiced in hospitals around the country and world, according to Reiki.org. With its global reach and the validation of countless individual testimonies, Reiki has become a reputable alternative healing treatment. If you’ve been practicing or receiving Reiki with blissful results, and you don’t feel pulled to learn something more or try something else – my feeling is that Reiki is right for you right now. If you are itching for something more, perhaps Reiki can help guide you to what you need. My Reiki Certification Courses are a great way to learn more about energy and help you tune in to your inner abilities.

Reiki is Like a Stem Cell

Reiki is a highly potent and beautiful form of energy healing where a practitioner, like me, transfers energy (vibration) to you through our hands, hearts, and intentions. I love it because it works every time. The transmission of these loving, healing vibrations affects each person on the level that they can accept. Sometimes people experience overall peace and relaxation, freedom from pain and illness, or a light of inner wisdom that helps them handle a pressing concern in their lives.

My own belief (and according to quantum physics, your belief shapes your reality) is that the passing down of the Reiki tradition amplifies its effect. While Reiki was re-introduced to us through Mikao Usui in the last century, the teachings and symbols we use are ancient and span all major religions. I believe we have the energetic backing of every single person who ever used hands-on healing before it was called Reiki. I believe we have the energetic backing of those who created and used the symbols. When a practice is done so many times with similar intent that practice begins to hold an energy of its own – Reiki energy contains this passed-down group energy.

When you receive a Reiki Attunement, that group energy and more is intentionally placed in your body so that you can use it for good. I love the fact that we never know exactly WHY… but Attunements ALWAYS seem to help even the most skeptic people transfer healing energy to themselves and others. I was one of these skeptics (and often still am), and so was my hubby Doug.

When I say that Reiki works every time, I mean that as long as it is done properly (by someone Attuned, with good intentions and an allowing recipient) — Reiki enters your system (energy body and physical body), and takes care of whatever you need most. Many of us are unaware of what we do need most though. It can be a nap, a poop – even the manifestation of a call from our moms.

Just like a stem cell, Reiki can become anything in your body or your life. It can become detoxification. It can become money. It can become complete healing. When you are open to healing and completely ready to allow healing to flow into your life – connecting with a Reiki practitioner that vibes with you may be all you need to get to the core of your issues and spring yourself into your Bliss.

We are all called to heal in our own ways. Healing with Reiki can have the same results as healing with acupuncture, herbs, diet, yoga, shamanic work (and others) – depending on who you are and where you are on your journey. All natural healing modalities work similarly to bring your body into wholeness and balance. They all have the capability of clearing away mental and physical blocks for healing. And, from what I’ve experienced, many of these practices compliment each other very well. I myself take the opportunity to experience the energy gifts of my friends and colleagues whenever I can. You don’t need any particular form of energy work or alternative healing unless you feel drawn to it.

Reiki is the Gateway Energy

I often refer to Reiki as the gateway drug into psychic healing work. Because it is pure positive energy that can become anything for you, it activates your truest self. If you need to make great changes in your life, Reiki can be a gentle but powerful quantum leap into that transition.

From my own experience, each Reiki Attunement and session with clients has brought me more into alignment with my purpose and abilities. I only feel that it is necessary to use my psychic and other healing abilities because I am called to do so. I feel that these skills help me help you.

Giving myself Reiki and sharing it with others has lead me to learn how to work with spirit guides, understand my intuitions and psychic prophesies, extend useful healing tips to my clients and friends, and continue to grow as a light worker. When I am working as an intuitive or Body Ecology coach, I am not directly performing Reiki – yet Reiki is at the core of everything I do.

I am often called to work with spirit guides, angels, food, oils, stones, animals, meditations, dance, sounds – and I do what I am drawn to. Not exactly Reiki, but a gift that began with Reiki.

Reiki is now accepted in many hospitals as a complimentary therapy to western medicine. It’s definitely proving to help mainstream energy healing. Even Dr. Oz mentioned Reiki lately. Most of my clients are GIFTED healers who are looking for a simple introductory step into the world of natural health, and they find that in Reiki.

As I grow, I’m able to offer my clients a lot more. I think this can vary depending on your practitioner. Some people experience instant gratification during a Reiki session, and this is definitely my intention. Other people find that they desire to learn more about why they have manifested their predicaments. In these cases, I even use Reiki to help facilitate deeper spiritual healing. Sure, other topics, like past lives and karma, may come up.

Reiki Is a Protected Energy

I did hands-on energy work before I learned Reiki and often felt it exhausting. I’d have good results, but then feel very depleted afterwards.  At times, I even got sick with illnesses that I was helping my clients  to heal. At first, I didn’t understand that absorbing negative energies was a possibility. But, it happened to me.

When I learned Reiki I learned that the energy I was using was not my own and this made all the difference. I was simply a channel for this healing work, and the results were out of my hands. I know some excellent energy workers who already understand this concept intuitively without needing to be attuned, and I know others who use their own energy effectively for helping others.

Reiki is an inherently protected practice that is ingrained with intention to keep the practitioner free from absorbing un-needed energies. Once I began practicing my energy work with my Reiki Attunement to support me, I noticed that I was no longer so strongly affected by dangerous energies.

I’ve Had My Doubts about Reiki

I’ve often felt like calling my work Reiki, limits me. After all, like many Reiki practitioners, I’m not just laying my hands on people. But, what if I was just doing that? I’ve finally come to a place where I feel a deep understanding of the simple beauty of Reiki. Jesus himself achieved instant healings by laying his hands on people in need. How did he know where to touch? How did he know what to say? Reiki comes from that. My visions and messages given to me from Jesus have let me know that he taught me what I do. Perhaps I lived in his time. Or, perhaps he is simply talking about a passing down of special energy.

Would Jesus or the Christ Consciousness approach a Reiki practitioner in a coffee shop and suggest that perhaps she was doing the wrong hands-on energy healing and that she should focus on Quantum Touch or Theta Healing? Not sure. But peeps have suggested that to me.

People tell me that they’ve had Reiki and didn’t like it, but that Theta Healing is the bomb. And, in my ideal world where labels don’t exist, I laugh and think that these are one in the same. That I am doing Theta healing (in my way).

So, I ask you again… is Reiki Legit? Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that Reiki was MY necessary step toward consciousness. And, it still is. I know I’m going to keep using it, but I also know it will keep growing. Calling myself a Reiki Master is also kind of silly to me, since I don’t believe that one can master energy. There is so much to learn.

Continuing Ed for Reiki Masters

I’m always taking classes and going to school to understand more about healing and connecting with energy. But, I have a great inner filter to help me determine what  to spend my time on. Thanks to my amazing teachers, I have learned how to choose classes that help me stay on my path.

I intend on completing my degree in Chinese Medicine, and pursuing my PhD as my life allows for that. I stray from teachings that attempt to negate any other teachings. I choose teachers who believe in the ultimate truth that we are all one. I choose subjects for the sake of self discovery and self healing.

I have learned that I am not doing “more than Reiki.” I am simply doing Reiki as I do Reiki and using the other gifts I am being called to use in addition.

Hands-on-Healing is a centuries-old gift that has been passed down by people like Jesus, Mikao Usui and mystics from all cultures. There is far too much information and high vibration there for me to fully understand in 4 years of practice. We are taught that Reiki is simply this transmission of energy, I believe it is so much more.

Is Reiki legit? That seems like such a silly question now.

Do you practice Reiki or enjoy Reiki healing sessions?

What do you think?

Dream: Shadow-Self Embracing with Jesus (Part 3: The Red-Power Tricycle)

Retro

Here is part 3 of last night’s dream. Catch up with part 1 and part 2

I ran  down the old Roman street so fast that my body began lifting off the road, and again I was flying. When I let go of the loss I felt for my life there and my husband I was sucked back into the light portal. I felt the colors cleansing me of pain left behind from Rome. I didn’t see the pain as details, but I felt it lifting. Pressure lifted from my head and limbs. I felt a sensation like being sucked through a vacuum.

Here is part 2 of last night’s dream. Follow up with part 1

I swallowed the violet light and felt it bringing me back to life. My spirit was again detached from my body, and the boys were still asleep — so I decided to see where the violet spirals would take me. At first, I began walking into the light. But, then my guide whispered — “ You can Fly.” And so I did.

Dreams are very important to me and my work. It is in our dreams that we let go of the human (3 dimensional world) limitations that keep us from knowing our true selves. As I travel my path and continue to help others on theirs, I thought it would be helpful to share some of my dreams with you. I’ve been so close to Jesus (in the most non-religious way imaginable) since I was a child. He has physically held me and guided me through the craziest and most confusing times. This post is not to offend anyone else’s interpretation of who Jesus is.

Ascension Symptoms: Is this Spiritual Awakening Happening to You?

The Whole Multiverse Has Gone Conscious

2014 Update: As Time and Space continue to squish together more rapidly and completely than ever before, I am seeing more evidence that we are succeeding in the uplifting of our planet/consciousness. During this time, many of us who wish to hit those higher realms of consciousness and thought often get sucked into (for whatever reason) leaving our bodies.. Perhaps we do this in dreams, energy work, meditation or astral travel. I’m noticing a trend amongst “LightWorkers” to deny their precious bodies and the importance of our avatars. If you receive any help from this article, please understand that it is very important to take exquisite care of your body as you move into higher spiritual knowing. Part of this ascension process is to fully respect, honor and understand our bodies. As Above So below, As Within So Without. We tend to want to ditch the body care when the going gets tough on the physical plane. Especially when we can see the other side of things. Many of my clients and friends are suffering from reoccurrences of old illnesses, serious body pain and challenges that demand attention. So, are you ascending? Yes, we all are. Which means we are being opened up to the deepest understanding of our own power, where we came from (the stars) and how to get back to ONENESS. We have always been ascending. We are just now closer than we’ve ever been and we’ve got more support than we’ve ever had.    Read more

Have We Met in Dreams? The Council of Dreamers

 2014 Update: I have nightly trips to the “council” and continue to receive guidance to implant the Christ Consciousness, the alchemical marriage energy into the planet, and into every physical place I go. Ive been woken out of my sleep with the booming message that right now, the only thing thats important is spreading this message of balance and harmony between divine masculine and divine feminine within all of us. Have you been to the council? Do you remember? It is time to wake into our dreams and REMEMBER our Truth. 

 

(from 2012)

 

 

I’ve attended the Council of Dreamers during many sleeps for the more than a year now. It seems that I only have the power to enter as a dreamer but that other beings from various planets and galaxies join us in their physical bodies. We come together to discuss solutions and predictions that will save the earth and our neighboring planets from destruction caused by human misconduct (so to speak). Last night’s meeting was quite significant, and it seemed I had to share.

I must admit that even as someone who works as a professional intuitive, I’m quite skeptical. I thought of these episodes as mere dreams influenced by some science fiction or something…Until I realized that I have never really been into science fiction. I also thought of them as symbolic tools that were referring to parts in my literal human life… Less profound parts. It’s good to be a skeptic sometimes. I think it keeps my mind working. But when the same occurrences keep happening louder and brighter and more often…. I listen. I listen carefully.

Last night while my body slept, I again entered the Council Hall where representatives from across the universe gathered. Every seat was taken. I looked around and witnessed so many colors, shapes and sizes of “people.” More than I usually encounter there. We welcomed the guest speaker, a human-like man with wavy brown hair and a beige robe, who literally had to cross over from another dimension (which apparently is not often done) to bring forth his message.

“It’s time to talk,” He said. “Now, is the time for those with information to share it.” He reiterated that all of us there have been waiting for centuries (or more) to reveal what we know. “It wasn’t time to talk before, we had many people against us.” I focussed on his mouth and the space between his teeth. He demonstrated how we can look into the mouth and lips of someone to determine if they are speaking truth. He encouraged us to form smaller focus groups with specific intentions. He said that within the next 12 years there was going to be a lot of destruction. In fact, he said that my hometown of Chicago was going to suffer quite a bit from a massive destructive force in 12 years. He seemed to be bringing this to our attention so that we would know where to be when this happened.

I joined a smaller focus group with a man who guaranteed our safety in New Mexico when this destructive event happened. The speaker was talking directly to me when he said to go to New Mexico from 2020-2024. I was shown how to escape such a tragedy. And I was told to share the information. The destruction was only going to be good for the planet in the end. We were encouraged to stay clear of areas being cleansed, and reminded that we could go back peacefully when the clearing was complete.

Now, as I write this my new moldavite stone is tingling in my pocket. It’s a stone that I only learned about in dreams of the Council. One I hadn’t been able to find for myself, but I received this week in trade for an amazing Reiki session. The stone is said to have formed as a result of a meteor hitting the earth over 14 million years ago. Not only does it influence our ability to connect with beings from other realms, but it also has a great power to heal the Earth Herself. It’s my feeling that moldavite was given to Earth as a great healing device, and that it’s rarity reflects its need to be in the hands of those who will use it properly. The person who shared it with me is also a great healer, but has more of her own moldavite. I’m grateful for mine, and can feel the magick of it deepening my connection to other worlds, and to the deeper parts of our world as well.

This healing moldavite and gift of ramped up connectedness comes at a very sacred time for me. I turned 33 last week on March 1, and have been living on a white fluffy cloud for some time even before that. 33 is a number that I’ve consistently seen throughout this lifetime and that has always represented the protective and enlightened feeling of Jesus. Not the Catholic or Christian Jesus who was created by propaganda. But the spirit Jesus. The Ascended Master. It might be because Jesus himself, when he lived as a man 2000 years ago was crucified at the age of 33. For me, The spirit who I see as Jesus always comes surrounded by 33s and brings me messages that catapult my growth. One of the most recent times I saw Jesus in full light and color was before 2012 began. I was lying on my couch resting and looked up to find him there. So, I asked him straight out what he thought of the year 2012. He said no words. Only showed me a zipper in the air that he slowly unzipped and walked through. I continue to see this vision more clearly every day and know that it refers to the melding of dimensions of reality, the melding of nations, cultures, galaxies, beings— and most importantly the squashing of time. Time seems to melt away when you realize that we have the capability of truly going anywhere we want whenever we want. That means not only being on your dream vacation in a flash, but visiting another reality in less than a flash.

This kind of growth is what many of us are working on now. The constant visits from the spirit Jesus and other guides who have lit my way continue to show me that this is possible by sharing so many glimpses of other realities that I have lost count. I am told by my guides that I am shedding the fear accumulated over past lives that prevented me from sharing my truth with the world. And, for those of us who turn 33 this year… Oh what a perfect time to shed the junk. There is also much significance for me in my personal upbringing as a Catholic Cristian, because in my adult life I have been able to connect with a spirit world as opposed to a religious dogmatic world. And as I unfold the false facts of my own childhood, my heart and mind open up to a delicious reality that is far more Bliss-Filled than I could’ve imagined.

The original simplified message of Jesus is that we are all one. It remains my favorite lesson of all time. Of course it was conceived far before the man we know as Jesus was born but, this energy is what the Christ Consciousness is all about. When we remove the barriers that separate people, places and times, we will enjoy enlightenment.The more I’ve forgotten that in my own life, the more I’ve caused struggle for myself. And although Jesus most-likely survived his crucifixion ( according to many reputable historic and religious sources not affiliated with the vatican), and was able to spread this message along with many others for quite some time, much of what he taught had to be encoded in stories and texts that would be able to pass through the hands of biblical editors. And it DID. Through the convoluted histories and lies, people like us can see the light. We can feel our connectedness and we know.

Now, here we are in March 2012. The month of the Pisces fish which is so influenced by the spirit of Jesus. The Year of compressed time and space. A gorgeous moment to be alive on our planet and finally see the fruits of our dreams of consciousness come to life. You are very supported right now in your endeavors to connect more deeply to your own psychic powers. Use every inch of what you have — body, mind and spirit to Bliss Out in being You! Let go into the magnified energy of manifestation.

At one time, I was one with ears to hear. I understood. I understood so that one day I could share. Today, we all must open our ears to hear. We must all share.

Jesus was a Pisces Too

I recently found Googled proof that I share a birthday with Jesus. I’d been looking for JC’s “real” birthday since well before Christmas –because the “holidays’ continue to lose meaning for me. I’m puzzling together a spiritual education for my son that includes teachings of all of the spiritual masters. But, I’m doing it on a shoestring time budget. So, admittedly – I “Google” many things first.

Although you can find ANYTHING on the internet, and so much of it is clouded in “scientific proof” or the admitted opinions of fantasy seekers – something about this made me ponder my connection with Jesus more deeply. And what came of it is pretty cool.

You see, I’m not a Christian. I was raised Catholic, and as an extremely sensitive and psychic child that really gave me a bad taste for church, church music, and images of Christ on the Cross. At a young age, I didn’t buy that suffering was what Jesus meant to teach us. And, I expressed that by throwing tantrums, giving the evil eye to people at church, and not singing or shaking hands at “peace be with you” when I was supposed to. Still, I found myself talking to Jesus, the “Real Jesus” (in my mind), in most of my internal conversation. I felt him holding me on many nights. Then, I grew up.

Until last January, when I had the most amazing and painful experience with the spirit world, I hadn’t seen Jesus in ages. But soon my visions, feelings and messages increased daily.

I hear that the times are changing, and soon messages like this will become more okay and accepted by all. And, in fact that messages like this are what we need to heal many of our pains. In a dream, Jesus told me to look at my hands. And, in them were endless crystal pools. He said “You know what you do with your hands?…. I taught you that.”

Since 2011 began, my visits from Jesus in dreams and waking life have inspired me to further study his connection to Reiki Healing… we all read in the Bible that Jesus healed with his hands – but I wanted to know how that connected to Reiki. When I asked that question in my mind, my brain filled with the Hare Krishna song, and I heard Jesus tell me that he has traveled to India. Then signs continued to pop up that he in fact DID travel there and shared knowledge with eastern spiritual leaders.

Everything brings me back to the idea that we are all connected and that was his true message. We are so connected that it makes my head spin sometimes. My husband feels my headaches, my son reads my thoughts, and I always wake up KNOWING some of what’s about to unfold for the day.

As a child, I had no idea how to marry my inner world with my outer, so I wrote a lot. I used to just let my pen float over the page and write “what God told it to write” then look up to my bedroom ceiling and say “Thank you God.” It was the best way I could connect with spirit. And, when God made my pen move I knew he/she was still there.

Today I know that I can connect with spirit more by connecting with you, and sharing the work that has been passed down to me.

As I write and teach I grow so much. But, I no longer fear exploding. I’m about to turn 32 on March 1. My birthday hasn’t meant that much to me since the days my dad used to take me out for lox and bagels, bowling and clothes-shopping. Don’t get me wrong…. there have been awesome birthdays.. really awesome ones. But, I’m a pisces and I always look for deep meaning.

This year, the deeper meaning is in the gifts I give. I already have some up my sleeve for the loves in my life. And, please keep watch for the ones I have for you.

Bliss You

365 Books to Bliss: Book 1 — “Psychic” By, Sylvia Browne

Don’t ask me why I picked up this book in the “first” place — other than the fact that it must’ve been divinely placed in my hands. It wasn’t the book I was looking for “Psychic Children,” and after reading 2 Sylvia Browne books in the previous week — I was a teeny bit bored of her.

I’m a writer. And, I can get cranky  and arrogant about all the zillion mediocre books that get published without  so much as a spell-checker. I so wrongfully assumed that this book was going to be one of those… yet I THANKFULLY picked it up anyway.

I’m obsessed with Mary Magdaline and Jesus. Have been ever since I was a kid. So, 2 weeks ago, when I was  bouncing down the library steps with my son, the hardcover copy of Sylvia Browne’s “2 Mary’s” fell into my  recycled grocery  bag.  I gobbled it down in 10 hours and found it a bit disappointing. She kept repeating the same concepts  and left me wanting to know more. So,  then I ate up “The Mystical Life of Jesus,” by Sylvia Browne, and began developing a soft spot for this famous psychic.

The JC book was much better in that there was more info to reveal. I felt the book about the two Mary’s didn’t contain enough info to call it a book.    If you wanted, I could summarize it in one sentence. But, I won’t. Because ,by now I am deeply in love with Sylvia Browne… almost more than I’ve ever been with any other psychic. And, “The Mystical Life of Jesus is so worth reading IF you are intrigued and new to the subject. It’s so easy to read, and so full of love and respect.  She shares new information about Christ that is likely to help anyone develop a stronger relationship with themselves and God. This is not a book  touting Christianity  or any other religion, and it takes Christianity far beyond the constraints of the Bible. In fact it totally shakes the Christian paradigm.

“Psychic”  By, Sylvia Browne

I’ m psychic. Have been for many lifetimes. Only now, finally — Ive figured out that it’s not a sin, or too weird. In fact.. I actually am fairly normal. But, when this book landed in my hand, it was because I first thought it was another of her book’s “Psychic Children.” I was hoping on some advice to help nourish my son’s abilities.

What I got instead was laugh after laugh as Sylvia describes her metamorphosis into a fully developed psychic. Everything happens so organically for her. Like how she has no idea that past lives exist, until she unintentionally regresses someone to ancient Egypt during a hypnosis.

Being psychic doesn’t mean that you know everything. We are just given messages sometimes, and it is for us to experience the life around the messages. I could so relate to her story. Sometimes I feel naive because terms like “astral travel” are fairly new to  me — but I’ve known how to do it my whole life.

The book wasn’t written as a “how to, ” but I found myself taking notes.

She teaches the difference between ghosts and spirits and what to do if you encounter either. She dispels myths about the Other Side, fairies, doppelgangers, angels and so much more.

Because this is a memoir, we come to understand that Sylvia is a person first devoted to logic and research.

I think that we all should be pretty skeptical of paranormal stuff if we have no proof. I am. There are lots of scams out there. Because I am psychic, I really benefited from the advice of the veteran — even though she didn’t write it as advice.

Read it if you are a young psychic. Read it if you would love to know more about exercising your psychic abilities. Read it for lots of laughs and a really great story about how one woman found BLISS by becoming her truest self.

Namaste,

Gina

Place Your Orders with the Universe

writing sample lamy vistaHow many times are you just gonna “wish” you had the money to take that trip, or the energy to go to that party, huh? What is it that you really want out of a job, a home, a lover…life?
Well, today I present you with a challenge. I say that whatever your heart desires shall be yours. That’s right! Provided you place that order consciously and that you actually want what you order.
A few months back my guru-spiritual teacher-psychic friend-knowledgeable elder- timeless spirit-person presented me with the same challenge. I was telling her that we needed to find a new place to live because my son is growing and really needs his own bedroom. And, my hubby and I would appreciate some personal space too. In my imagination, I kicked myself in the head because I recalled the promise I made to myself when we signed the lease on the one-bed where we currently live. I made an internal pact not to make another move unless it was to California.
13 years earlier I’d written the same promise in a pink plastic covered diary with a lock and key. It’s something I’ve always known was right for me.
BUT, the man in my life was tied to his career and I found myself giving in, and going on the hunt for places in Chi Town. I do love Chicago, so I wasn’t completely devastated.
My friend asked me what I wanted in a place. I told her “space, cleanliness, convenience.” Blah Blah Blah… All I was thinking was warm weather and the ocean. “Write it down,” she said. “Write down everything you want, and be specific. Then put it up on the fridge and keep looking at it. It will come true. Just understand that it will happen when it is supposed to happen. The Universe works on its own time. Not Yours” (or something like that).
Believe it or not I got the husband to sit down with me over tacos and carefully describe our dream residence on a restaurant napkin. It was fabulous. It said: “3 bedrooms (1 for office), close to water, safety, convenience… Blah Blah Blah…. We hung it on the fridge.
Three weeks passed.
We looked for apartments tirelessly. Our lease was about to expire.
Nothing.
I constantly wished my husband would find a career that made him happier. I constantly envisioned us in California.
After a month the napkin got gross and I threw it out.
Then, we got a strange call from my brother in-law who was super excited to take us out for steak and I was secretly yearning to go even though I don’t eat meat because I felt something amazing was going to happen. My husband is in business with my brother in-law. So, we arrived at the prissy steak house and the BIL and his woman were glowing. Something was up.
Turns out they had some sort of spiritual awakening, got Jesus tattoos and decided to sell the business. And, guess where they decided to move?
That’s right – California.
I almost kissed the guy. Not only could my husband unravel himself from a job that makes him complain, but we could move to our true dream home and even bring some family with us.
I placed my true order in my mind. As soon as Joan suggested I do it, I knew what I really wanted. So, I didn’t get any of that stuff I would’ve settled for. I’m still in my one bed apartment with an extended lease and a plan to be out by September.
Can this work for you? Consider a situation you wish you could change — a health issue, relationship problem or something even simpler. Now, envision yourself with that problem resolved. How do you look? Who is around you? What are you doing? Write down everything positive that you see. Do you want more money? Why? What will you do with it? If you are going to buy something, envision yourself with it, using it for good, and write that down.
If you are very specific it will help create a vivid picture in your mind.
Tack that order up on the fridge, wall or somewhere that’s open for you to look at daily.
Do It!
And, please let me know how it works.
