Soul Kiss:: Is it really a Secret?

Hey Friends,

Its hard to believe but we are already into month Number 2 of this year. Sadly, by now, most folks who made new years resolutions have given up and quit. If you are one of those people, let me tell you that its not too late to get back on track! If jumping in feet first was too much, ease into the new habit you want to create. Begin by reading a new book on goal setting or studying the works of a successful person you admire. Currently, I’m reading and listening to audio stuff from one of my favorite people, Earl Nightingale. Here is a snippet from one of his works, The Strangest Secret.

“Well, it’s pretty apparent, isn’t it? We become what we think about. A person who is
thinking about a concrete and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that’s what
he’s thinking about. Conversely, the person who has no goal, who doesn’t know
where he’s going, and whose thoughts must therefore be thoughts of confusion,
anxiety, fear, and worry will thereby create a life of frustration, fear, anxiety and
worry. And if he thinks about nothing … he becomes nothing.”


This book is a short read but a little treasure. I found this copy from and  downloaded it for free >>>>   The_Strangest_Secret <<<<< Feel free to download it, too.

You can change your life when you want to… it doesn’t take a new year and the Auld Lang Syne song to make adjustments! You got it!!

Comment and Let me know your thoughts on the book!

As always,

What is The Law Of Attraction?

Heeeey Friends!!

I was emailed a link to the movie “The Secret” right after my dad died in 2006. I was sad and in a terrible place mentally. I felt like my life would be over soon, too. I watched the movie and was drawn in. This seemed to be “the” answer to everything. Ask. Believe. Receive. It was an introduction to the Law Of Attraction. I was in shock to this new way of thinking. Why hadn’t I heard of this before and if life was so easy, why did mine suck???? These were questions I was asking myself.

I forwarded the link to as many people I could. I searched online for more information on the subject. I also joined a Youtube group of like minded folks who put this law into 90 day challenges. The basic premise was to see what small things we could manifest, (free lunches, front parking spots, spotting odd color cars like hot pink) and share our manifestations with each other via videos we posted. We became a close group of friends and I’m still connected to a handful of them across the world. That one link was life changing.

The Law of Attraction is not anti-religion nor anti-God, nor anti-Buddha, nor anti-anything; it is the exact opposite. It opens your mind to watch your tongue and stop using negative energy in your life. It makes you believe that you can manifest what you see in your mind. The Law of Attraction will always work whether you believe it or not.

There is so much to talk about on the subject of Law of Attraction so I’ll make this it’s own series, we’ll dabble in it frequently because this post will be waaay too long if I try to type all that I’ve learned in this one little post. ( vision boards, action, faith, relationships, money,etc.)

Here are celebs who’ve shared information publicly about their belief in The Law Of Attraction. (image and video)


Have you heard of “The Secret” (Law of Attraction)? If you have any questions or want me to post something specific on the subject, let me know.

Do you need a dose of #Inspiration? Here ya go!

The Little Guide to Inspiration

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London

We all have days when we’re just not very inspired, when we need passion and creativity breathed into us.

I know I do.


For anyone who needs a little shove, whose creativity has dried up, who needs to be moved … I humbly offer this simple guide.

While I never claim to have all the answers, nor that my way is the only way, I share here some things I’ve learned about inspiration, some tricks I’ve learned that work for me.

I’m often in need of inspiration, but in all cases I’ve found it. And it’s a wonderful thing.

What Is Inspiration?

Many people think of it as an elusive quality that can’t be forced, and yet it can be found if you look for it.


Others think it’s a way to find ideas, but it’s more than ideas … it’s being moved to put those ideas into action.

Inspiration is finding something else that is divinely inspired (people, nature, amazing ideas), having that inspiration breathed into you (“breath” is the root of “inspiration”), and then taking action on it. Creating, doing, inspiring others.

How to Find Inspiration

Inspiration is just about everywhere you can look, if you’re looking for it. That’s the key: to keep your eyes open. Too often we miss beautiful sources of inspiration, because we’re too busy thinking about other things.

Be observant. See everything around you as a possible source of inspiration.

Some possible sources of inspiration:

  • blogs
  • books
  • magazines
  • films
  • people around you
  • nature
  • children
  • art
  • music
  • history
  • exercise
  • religion
  • great projects
  • dreams
  • social media
  • photographs
  • forums
  • google
  • success stories
  • life, everywhere

Just keep your eyes open, at all times, staying present whenever possible, and allow yourself to breathe in that inspiration.

How to Stay Inspired

Inspiration isn’t just a one-time thing. You’ll need it on a regular basis.

When you practice the above method — keeping your eyes open, staying present, and breathing in inspiration — you get better at it. It becomes a skill you can use at any time, and you’ll use it often.

Some tips for keeping the inspiration coming:

  • Work with inspired people – one of the best ways to stay inspired is to work with creative, energetic, positive people.
  • Read daily – varied things, from blogs to magazines to books of all kinds.
  • Get outside – nature is one of the biggest inspirations, and you’ll miss it if you’re inside all day.
  • Talk with new people – they’ll always expose you to new and interesting things, if you’re open to it.
  • Break out of your routine – see things from a different perspective. Take a new route home. Go to a new restaurant. Visit someplace new in your area.
  • Find time for silence – it’s more inspiring than you might think. Unfortunately, not enough of us do it.
  • Exercise – or at least get moving. It helps the blood to circulate, and gets ideas moving around. My most inspired thoughts come during runs.

Now Take Action

Don’t just feel inspired. Take this inspiration and use it, be moved, and do something. Channel that inspiration into creating something amazing.

Put that something out into the world, and in turn, you will inspire others.

Having trouble taking action? Read, The Little Rules of Action post here on my blog.

Daily Kiss:: Formula for all of life


“What you hope, you will eventually believe. What you believe you will eventually know. What you know, you will eventually create. What you create, you will eventually experience. What you experience you will eventually express. What you express you will eventually become. This is the formula for all of life.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch

Daily Kiss:: Imagine. Is it really that simple?

Imagine how you want it to be. Not what is.

“Never mind what is. Imagine it the way you want it to be so that your vibration is a match to your desire. When your vibration is a match to your desire, all things in your experience will gravitate to meet that match every time” ~Abraham Hicks
