Would you like to improve your life instantly?

Would you like to change your life, make millions of dollars, meet the right person or start experiencing happiness right away?

Now imagine that you have the ability to turn things around right away by working with special powers.

But What would happen if you actually had those powers and didn't know how to use them?

Think about it.

You do have special powers - the only reason why you're not living the life you want is because you don't know how to use those special powers.

I call it the Power Within - and if you know how to apply the awesome power that you have within - you will be able to dramatically change or improve your life faster than you thought possible.

And now that you know you are a Super Hero with magical inner power. Let's get started.

To access your awesome Power Within, you first have to learn how to direct your subconscious mind to attract the people, situations and circumstances that will help you create the changes or improvements you want.

Then you have to begin changing how you see things and how you see yourself.

What do I mean by that?

Well, if you want to be successful then you have to see yourself as someone who is capable of being successful.

If you want to be in a healthy, loving and caring relationship - then you have to see yourself as someone who is capable of being in a loving, caring relationship.

It also means that you can no longer accept any limiting or negative thoughts and beliefs that prevent you from accomplishing your goals.

For example: If you want to be successful you can no longer say, think or believe that "it's too difficult to be successful, I don't know what to do. I never get any great opportunities. My parents never encouraged me. My friends don't support me. Everybody around me is too negative. I don't get any positive feedback."

These are all negative statements, thoughts and beliefs that prevent you from achieving your goals. Now it's time to eliminate them and change them into statements that do help you achieve your goals.

If you keep the negative statements you have your Power Within working against you.

Now that you know your a Super Hero is't time to start using your Power Within for good not evil!

'Cause when it comes right down to it - only you can determine your own success. It doesn't matter if people around you are negative. You don't need encouragement and support from friends or family. You only need to believe and see yourself as someone who is capable of being successful.

Once you do that - once you raise the bar a little higher - once you see yourself as fully capable of achieving your goals you can then begin to direct your subconscious mind so that it begins attracting opportunities for you to be successful.

So don't believe the excuses or reasons that your mind gives you.

Take a look at where you are today and decide what kind of life you want to live. Start seeing yourself as successful in every aspect of your life. Once you see yourself as successful you will be able to direct your mind and subconscious mind and start using your power within to help you achieve your goals.

Once you've decided to raise the bar and you've decided you're no longer going to put up with the excuses that have limited your success - your next step is to develop a higher level of self-awareness.

Let's face it most people are not aware of the incredible Power Within that they posses. Most people aren't aware of why they do the things they do - they just do them.

Most people don't know why things happen the way they do - they simply accept that they happened and that's the end of it. They miss out on the opportunity to work with their Power Within.

I'm not suggesting that you analyze every little detail in your life - I just want you to become more self-aware so that you realize what you want, where you are heading and how you plan to get there. It's like giving your Power Within a set of instructions to follow.

This is something that few people do - and those who do it become tremendously successful like Russell Simmons, Oprah Winfrey and Bob Johnson just to name a few. All three had a HUGE dream that was only realized by harnessing their Power Within.

I suggest you take a look at someone you consider successful - see if they followed the above formula on some level and you'll find that a lot of them did - often without knowing that they did.

At the end of the day - you have to live with your life and you have to live with the excuses - not me. But if you want to get results - if you want to properly work with your Power Within then you have to change the way you do things.

This means no more complaining or whining. Man up! Because you only attract what you focus on. If you constantly complain you are focusing on what is wrong and guess what? You'll only attract more what you complain about. You'll also attract people who complain and together you'll all get exactly what you complain about. This creates the negative cycle and you actually end up using your Power Within to get more of what you don't want. So stop complaining and stop focusing on all that is wrong in your life.

When you do this you get your mind moving in a new direction - you start to utilize the power of your mind because now you're giving it something new to do - issuing a new challenge one that it is more than capable of meeting.

You also start utilizing the power of your subconscious mind in a positive way. Instead of attracting more of what you don't want - you begin concentrating the energy and power of your subconscious to create the situations that will help you achieve your goals. This is how the power within begins to work for you and gets you results.

The best part is that you'll begin attracting the people that will help you achieve those goals and the people that believe in you - and more importantly you'll repel those people who used to enjoy complaining and whining about the same things over and over. Why? Because now you're taking action and you intend to achieve your goals - so you will naturally attract the people and situations that will help you, while those that can no longer help you will have less of an impact on your life and ambitions.

Now there is a lot more that can be done - but I've outlined the basic starting points for you to begin working with your Power Within. Now it's up to you start doing what I've outlined. You may say: "Oh yeah, I know this stuff - I've heard it before." But do you practice it - I mean really practice it every day!

If you don't practice the above exercises everyday so that you instill a discipline that leads to greater success - nothing will change. It's really that simple. The life you live tomorrow is based on the thoughts, actions and beliefs you hold today. Change those - and you change your life.

So Super Hero (yeah - I'm talking to you) grab your cape! It's your turn to launch your Power Within!

Get Excited About 2008!

..... 'cause I know I am. I have my red party dress laid out on the bed even as I type. No matter what did or didn't happen in 2007, I am so excited just thinking about the possibilities that 2008 has to offer.

Because you know what? The quickest way to turn a bad situation into a blessing is to get excited! Things may not look so good right now. You may be facing more trials and tribulations than you ever thought possible. Your job may suck and your love life non-existent. You may even doubt your ability to hold up under the pressure or the scrutiny of trying to make things different. You may think you’ve done something to deserve the storm that circles around you.

It's all okay! You can still choose to be excited.

Excitement is the opposite of anxiety. It brings a new energy into any situation. Excitement gives you power and puts you in charge of what you do and how you react to what’s going on in your life.

Just imagine how you will feel when the situation is over. Think about what you will do with the knowledge and experience you are gaining. Think about the stories you can tell, the people you can assist, the fact that you will know what to do if you are ever in this situation again. Isn’t that exciting?

In any situation, you have the right, power and ability to choose your experience. Old habits and negative thought patterns will be the first to show up, but we can choose a new way in which you affect the outcome. Rather than slipping into fear, resentment, or anger; you can get excited! Be excited that this has come to an end. Be excited that you are equipped to handle it! Be excited that life is trusting you to do the right thing! Be excited that you will do your best, no matter what happens. Be excited that your best is more than good enough.

And be excited that in any given moment, you can change your life.

Wishing you the best of everything in 2008!

As We Go Into A New Year ...

... maybe you should ask yourself a new question.

The question is, what are you willing to do to get what you say you want? Are you willing to discipline your mind and your mouth? Are you willing to get up early, stay up late and work hard all the hours between? Are you willing to work for free? Are you willing to do it with excellence? Are you willing to do it even when your best friend shakes her head, laughs at you and tells you that you're crazy?

The question is, what are you willing to give up to get what you say that you want? Are you willing to give up bad habits, negative thinking, and negative people? Are you willing to take a risk and put your butt on the line when all the signals indicate that you are totally insane? Are you willing to stand up for yourself? To speak for yourself? Are you willing to walk away from the people who will be very upset when you stand up and speak up? Are you willing to walk away from everything you now know to get to something and someplace you can only hope will be what you want it to be?

The question is, who are you willing to be? Are you willing to be a free and independent thinker? Are you willing to be the one who calls the shots? Are you willing to have fun? Are you willing to live in total peace and joy? Are you willing to have fun and joy in total peace all by yourself, if necessary? As long as you can find one excuse not to answer these questions affirmatively. You will never have what you say you want.

Yesterday I Cried

I had to post this poem TODAY because YESTERDAY I was too busy crying. I think sometimes people are ashamed to admit that they cry - especially men. That crying is a useless and embarrassing thing to do.

But even crying can have a purpose.

Shedding tears can be a healing experience. If you know why you are crying. Yep, it's called CRYING WITH A PURPOSE.

We've heard it all before. Situations show up in your life to make you stronger. I get that. But haven't there been certain times in your life when the situations just keep on coming and it begs for the question to be asked ... just how strong can one person be? I mean really - when is enough ... ENOUGH?

Yesterday was that day for me.

So yesterday - I cried tears of frustration and tears of confusion because there are times when I just don't get it. Days when the devil has so completely knocked my off my square that I don't see the path that shone so clearly just the week before. Thank goodness those days are few and far between.

But I had one yesterday - and I cried tears of pain - not only for myself but for everyone that has ever felt the same way. I cried until my eyes stung too much to open and my nose was too sore to blow. I cried so hard - I exhausted myself. Cried until there was nothing left to do but go to sleep. Funny how what was so distorted while you are awake becomes crystal clear when you are still enough to allow the divine light in you to shine. Even if that opportunity comes only when you are quietness of sleep.

When I woke up this morning - tears were a thing of the past. Today - I know I can still be stronger - so yes, the situations will continue to appear ensuring that I continue to grow into my purpose.

And I'm sure tomorrow I will cry again - but this time - they will be tears of victory.

I share this poem with you by Iyanla Vanzant. She says it much more eloquently than I ever could.

Yesterday, I cried.
I came home, went straight to my room,
sat on the edge of my bed,
kicked off my shoes, unhooked my bra,
and I had myself a good cry.
I cried until my nose was running all over the silk blouse I got on sale.
I cried until my ears were hot.
I cried until my head was hurting so bad
that I could hardly see the pile of soiled tissues lying on the floor at my feet.
I want you to understand,
I had myself a really good cry yesterday.

Yesterday, I cried,
for all the days that I was too busy,
or too tired, or too mad to cry.
I cried for all the days, and all the ways,
and all the times I had dishonored, disrespected,
and disconnected my Self from myself,
only to have it reflected back to me in the ways others
did to me the same things I had already done to myself.
I cried for all the things I had given, only to have them stolen;
for all the things I had asked for that had yet to show up;
for all the things I had accomplished, only to give them away,
to people in circumstances, which left me feeling empty,
and battered and plain old used.
I cried because there really does come a time when
the only thing left for you to do is cry.

Yesterday, I cried.
I cried because little boys get left by their daddies;
and little girls get forgotten by their mommies;
and daddies don't know what to do, so they leave;
and mommies get left, so they get mad.
I cried because I had a little boy,
and because I was a little girl,
and because I was a mommy who didn't know what to do,
and because I wanted my daddy to be there so badly until I ached.

Yesterday, I cried.
I cried because I hurt. I cried because I was hurt.
I cried because hurt has no place to go
except deeper into the pain that caused it in the first place,
and when it gets there, the hurt wakes you up.
I cried because it was too late.
I cried because it was time.
I cried because my soul knew that I didn't know
that my soul knew everything that I needed to know.
I cried a soulful cry yesterday, and it felt so good.
It felt so very, very bad.
In the midst of my crying,
I felt my freedom coming,

Yesterday, I cried
with an agenda.

Women are SiNginG, DaNCinG, BreAthing and LiVing

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Something quite phenomenal is going on.
I’m not so sure what it is,
but quite frankly,
I don't care!
I simply know that, whatever it is,
it will be great!
It has to do with change, healing, growth, and evolution. And it has to do with women.
If I were pressed,
I would put it in words like these:
There are changes taking place in the hearts and minds of women
that are going to rock the world!
Women are changing their minds about who they are and what their role will be in the world order.
Women are learning to be responsible for the healing of their mental, emotional, and spiritual selves.
Women are learning to love themselves and each other.
Most of all, women are evolving to the point
where they are no longer willing to accept crap
from themselves or anyone else.
I love it!
How you ask are they doing it?
Well, I can only tell you what I know.

Women are learning how to breathe.
They had forgotten how to breathe.
Now, they are breathing consciously. They are breathing deeply.
Breath awakens the divinity resting at the core of our beings. It brings light into the soul.
It lightens the mind, body, and spirit of women. It brings light unto the world.
Women are learning how to lighten up.
Women are praying.
They know that prayer is the inner communication between themselves and their Maker
which turns on the force-the power of the creative nature of life.
They are realizing that prayer can get into places they cannot.
Prayer can reveal what cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Women are learning that prayer is the best weapon one can use when one is engaged in spiritual warfare.

Women are singing.
Somehow, they know that singing stimulates the forces of the Divine
and they are realizing that it is their responsibility to sing to the glory of God.
Women are singing:
"Ain't Conna Let Nobody Turn Me 'Round" because
"Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This."
Sometimes, they sing, "My Soul Looks Back and Wonders How I Got Over,"
but they know "There's Something Inside So Strong"
and they sing, "1 Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!" and
''I'm Every Woman!" and
"Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now!" and
"Everything Must Change!"
They know "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" and
''I'm Gonna Pray Your Kingdom Down!"
'cause they know "You Got the Right One, Baby!"
Women are singing loud.
Women are singing joyfully.

Women are dancing.
Women are dancing playfully. Women are dancing seriously.
When the pelvis of a woman swings in the movement of dance, the energy she emits heals the world in which she lives.
Women are coming to understand that one of the major problems in this country
and the world
is that it is being run by people who cannot dance, who have no rhythm,
who are out of step.
These people are stepping on other people's toes.
Dancing women are women in rhythm,
women in time with the beat of life.
Women are beginning to boogie their way to peace and prosperity.
They are doing the Hustle,
Electric Sliding themselves out of darkness, and waltzing into the light.
They are creating new steps and dancing to their own music. Women are beginning to realize that their ultimate dancing partner is the One Mind, One Spirit, One Power of Life called God.
It is a beautiful sight to behold:
Women - breathing, praying, singing, dancing, and living from that place of divinity that can change the world.
