When I was taught to meditate, I was also taught to observe. To observe my thoughts. When you observe your thoughts, all of them, you can start seeing how things are related and how your thoughts contribute to and impact your reality. Period.
What a super cool reality we live in! How does it get any better than that? They’re going to call you crazy, but once you take the time to truly observe, you will see that your thoughts affect reality. All of the time.
Some day I may tell you more about my water and fire superpowers, about my mistakes with them, and my tests/play. But for now, I’ll stick to this one focus.
Today, it rained again. That makes at least 15-16 days in a row, now, ever since I connected with the element of water and asked for a daily afternoon or evening rain.
I have a special talent or ability with the elements. I also think other people can develop this, too. Anyway, I asked for rain. I asked for rain daily. I asked for gentle rain, consistent, that would keep fires at bay, that would contribute to our land here in Colorado.
and it has come every day, without a miss, ever since.
How super coolio is this magical world of ours?
Play with it. Play with asking, with your thoughts.
Prayer is a form of thought, so if you want to do it as prayer, go right ahead.
Invite the rain in your life to wash out your doubts of empowerment.
We are super potent beings.
Step into your potency, your magic, your inner wizard NOW.
There was a time, not too long ago, that I woke up in the morning and I was worried, concerned about money, what I was going to do today.
Remember, what you focus on expands. So if you focus on your “problems” they will become larger.
If you focus on what other possibilities there are or can be created, these start expanding. More ideas come to mind. What else is possible is a gem of a question to use for this.
I found myself needing to turn my financial situation around once and for all.
I went to gratitude. Gratitude for what I already had, gratitude for my mind, my body, my awareness, my path. No judgment can exist when you are in gratitude. When you judge how stupid or bad or wrong or whatever other ugliness you harshly criticize yourself with, your energy shrinks, and you are buying a lie.
I found that when starting with GRATITUDE, my energy automatically expanded, got lighter, the judgments couldn’t exist.
I felt better. I loved my life. I remembered that I loved me, my family, my friends, this amazing, amazing universe!
I also found that when I practiced starting my day with gratitude, more business came in. I received more calls, out of the blue, for new projects. I didn’t get all of the work, and when I focused on wanting it for the money, it would slip out of my hands. I would create funkiness there.
So when I stepped back into gratitude, the projects would come in again.
I have a friend, George, that tells his story of his business. He was struggling. How he just was fighting with the universe, God, why is it so hard? He came home to find his house infested with bedbugs, he wasn’t making the money he needed, he was wanting to serve and inspire people and he thought he was on his path, why wasn’t it working?
He cried, laid down on his bed and cried. Then, he describes, the idea of RADICAL GRATITUDE came to him. That was the message from the Universe, be grateful for what you’ve got, and more will come…..
and, of course, it did.
I took it to heart as well. When I started my day with gratitude, things shifted. Yes, that is the MOST POWERFUL TOOL….BEING GRATITUDE. No judgment can exist there.
All your junky, gunky energy from the previous day will clear with the beautiful, true energy of gratitude. Peace will come.
So, try starting your day with gratitude, it will not only feel great, it will help your business prosper, your relationships, your health, all things!

KEY #3: What if you are 95% MORE PSYCHIC and AWARE than you ever recognized?
So with the first KEY, you have expressed your gratitude for the amazing and magical (and possibly not so amazing) things in your life, and whatever your are grateful for, you have expanded your energy.
The second Key is the amazing tool to keep you truthful with yourself and the energy of any situation: The Truth will make you feel LIGHTER, and a LIE will MAKE you feel HEAVIER. Use it daily, hourly, whenever you are are choosing, communicating, and creating! Use it when choosing something in alignment with your mission, vision, and values.
Today’s topic: KEY #3 What if you are 95% MORE PSYCHIC and AWARE than you ever recognized? What if those thoughts, feeling, and emotions are not even yours?
What if what you think are your thoughts, your feelings, your emotions, are not always yours?What if you are so psychic and aware, you are taking on other peoples’ thoughts, feelings, and emotions as if they are yours? and Then you try to fix them. But if it that depression isn’t even yours, how can you fix it?
I have a wonderful TOOL I learned with Access Consciousness for this – ask, “Who does this belong to? Is this mine or someone else’s?” If it’s not yours, it should lighten up and go away.
Remember, this can be for thoughts, beliefs, “I’m not good enough to make this sale!” Ask yourself (can be silently), Whoa, Nelly, am I being super psychic?Who does that even belong to? Is that even yours? Do you go into other peoples’ universes, pick up their thoughts, and then worry about them having enough money to buy what you are selling? Let that stuff go, man! Does that serve you at all?
This can be for emotions, feeling depressed is a big one we take on from others. Again, ask, “Is this mine or someone else’s?” Just by being aware it might not be yours, you allow the energy to shift. If it’s not yours, it will lighten up and go away. What if you are just super psychic? More so than we ever discuss in this society.
This can also be for feelings, pain and other sensations you might sense in your body, for example, pain. I often will take on other peoples’ pain, especially if they tell me about their injury, or I see the bandages. My body will automatically reproduce it, or try to heal them, take it out of another person’s body.
It’s actually a very cool, useful tool, especially as a healer, knowing where the person you might be working on has pain. However, use it for awareness, do NOT take it on to heal them, for it will be difficult to leave your body. I did this with a couple of friends a few years back. One, when I would focus on her, I would get black energy in my belly. It felt like tar, it was disgusting. She was grossly overweight and had a tendency to lie, and I think she had something seriously wrong inside her internal organs. I would focus on her and feel nasty, get this black gunk energy in my abdominal area. It was nasty and I didn’t know how to get rid of it. I would surround myself with white light, I would try to pull it out of my body and energetically send it away, but it would be right back. I liked the idea of healing them, of taking the illness out of their body, but how I did it was to take it into mine. I was being super psychic with my body, embodying their junk, and I didn’t have that “Who does this belong to?” tool.
I was also doing this at the same time with another girlfriend that had cancer. I would send her healing energy, play with pulling the disease out of her and end up taking on her energy inside my body, and then I got scared. I couldn’t release it.
In fact, one of our cats died of cancer very quickly right near that time. I think he took it out of me and didn’t know how to release it either.
Anyway, my friend died, she just kept recreating the cancer, and I got to stop taking on her energy.
But I never really learned how to release it completely until this tool from Access Consciousness. KEY #3, What if you are 95% MORE PSYCHIC and AWARE than you realize? Use the question,”Who does this belong to? Is this mine or someone else’s?” and 99% of the time it lightens up and goes away. this will bring you clarity on what is actually your energy and what it is you are sensing from others: their nervousness, anxiety, depression, feeling of unworthiness, all the judgments, what if it isn’t even yours?! Return it to sender….consciousness attached. and ask “Who does this belong to?” for every thought, feeling, and emotion. Daily.
Now, when it’s sticky, it’s a truth with a lie attached, and that you need another tool that I will talk about tomorrow.
“Ask and you shall Receive, Seek and You shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you.”
What if the Universe is there to support you? God, source, the molecules, the Law of Attraction, however you want to name it, what if you actually did ask for things, ask for support, and set the energy into motion, and it will take shape, it will be done?
What if you could command mountains? Or at least molecules? That’s command, not demand. Ask and you shall receive!
Play with this next tool, Key #5, Asking Questions as the Magic Wand for your inner wizard!
Do you know what your goals or targets are? For this month? If you have your own business, do you know what you are working toward? Do you have something else you are working toward creating? A book? A song composition? Training an animal? Maybe it’s quality time with loved ones.
Be clear on these, and then ask for support. Use your role as director of the energy, ASK open ended questions!
One of the ways I discovered my inner wizard was by having my own business. I would get work when I was in the question and asking for it. When I was too busy, or I didn’t want any calls, none would come. It was quite magical!
It works all of the time! If you do not have things you are focusing on to create, are you wishing you did? If you’d like to change that, make a list. Start with 5 top things you’d like to create in your life.
Ask some questions around the goals or targets. Be as open-ended with them as you can.
Any energy you put out toward something will come back to you. If you are focusing on more clients, say for a business you are starting, ask some questions around it.
You could ask things like, “What can I be, do, create, or generate today for this business to expand? Who can I call, run in to, or connect with to generate 2 more clients this week? Is there some advertising that would be expansive for it?
Is there some networking events that would be good? What can I do today that willl be a contribution for it or whoever my business would like to serve? Who is crazy enough to pay me good money for the services I can provide for them now or in the future?
Generative questions create more possibilities.
Be clear on your targets, what is it you are creating? What is it you would like to have more of in your life?
and Play! Have fun with the questions. Notice how they may be creating exactly what you are asking for (be careful with your word choice – OK that’s another KEY) and it may look WAY different than you think. Be open to receive. Follow the energy, if it feels light, expansive, that’s the way to go.
Key #7: What motivates you? What do you desire to create in your life? Do you have a Mission? A Vision? What do your values tell you about your path? Do you have a Why? What is your motivation for what you desire to create?
Maybe it has to do with a business you’re creating or have already created. Why did you start it? Is there a motivational factor? What were you”born to do?” Do you have a calling? What is it at your heart’s desire? What do you desire to contribute to others and to the world?
This Key #7 to Creating your Magical Life has to do with looking at what motivates you. Do you have an overall mission? An overall vision? Or perhaps a compelling story? What is your Why? Why are you focusing on what you’re focusing on? What excites you? INspires you? and what do you want to bring to the world?
Some people are inspired by different things. Some people are competitive with the people around them, they see someone else doing or being what they, themselves, would like, so that is a motivational factor. It is one from outside the self, but it still can provide motivation.
Do you have something that makes your heart sing? Something you LOVE to do, that may be easy for you? Do you love telling stories or singing songs or composing music?
What gives you energy? What brings you joy? What would you die for? What would you regret if you had never tried?
These are questions you can ask if you are NOT sure of your why….not sure of your own Mission and Vision…..to help you clarify. To help jog your memory, was there something you LOVED as a child that you feel compelled to do?
I recently joined a mastermind group for my empowerment coaching business. The first thing we talked about was clarifying our mission, vision, and values. If those are clear, then your business has a rudder, a direction. Targets and goals can be created, not just based on numbers and how many people you want to serve, BUT WHY. What is your motivating force? What value will you be providing your clients as well?
I had created a mission and vision for my architectural business years ago, but I realized, though I’d been in business as an energy healer, facilitator and coach for more than a year, I had never written down a formal Mission Statemen, Vision, and the values I hold dear. I had done it for non-profit organization, with a board, where we agonized over every minute detail.
Your Mission should be BIG! The definition of Mission is a strongly-felt aim, ambition, or calling. Your mission is your guiding light and will encompass a deep emotional and energetic tug.
Vision is how you envision you will impact your tribe, your life, the world.
So it was time for me to write out my Mission and Vision for Light of Dawn EnergyWorks…..wanna hear?
My Mission is, “To empower people to discover and unleash their Inner Wizard!”
The world and this Universe is Magical, and we ARE all WIZARDS, most of us with potency we have yet to discover and cultivate. I know that the wisdom of the ages is inside us, each one of us, and that, if we allow ourselves to be ourselves totally, have the innate knowing within. My mission is to get people to see this magic and to give them tools to establish a deeper trust and knowing with this wisdom.
My Vision is as follows: “I am an international empowerment facilitator. I generate hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, empowering people to tap into their inner wizard and live more potently, authentically, creatively, and holistically connected. I am a change agent that inspires greater awareness and genius in everyone I touch.”
The vision should be written in first person present tense. Use your mission to help you expand your vision. Your Mission is what you stand for, and your vision is how you envision fulfilling your mission.
Keep in mind, your missions and vision can be flexible as well, they will morph over time, most likely. Review and renew them each year. But Do IT: Get CLEAR ON YOUR MISSION!!!
Welcome to Key #8 of the 22 keys to creating your Magical Life:Crystal Clear Goals – what do you truly desire to create?
So if you have gotten crystal clearon your mission and vision (Key #7), you will have some good clues on how you truly desire to direct your energy. Now is the time to set some clear goals or targets. Attainable, measurable, clear goals.
Do you have targets, goals, that you have clearly identified? What is it you are putting your energy toward? What is it that your Mission, Vision, and values are motivating you to create? Are you using your driving motivation to get clear goals or targets – what you’d like to create, to contribute to the world?
Is what you are doing in your job, career, business, fulfilling you? Do you have some things you’d like to change, shift, add to your life? What energy, space, and consciousness can you be to add more of what you’d like into your life?
Do you have your own business? Do you want to start one? If so, what is it? Is there a timeframe? What are your targets with it? What are your targets with your career? With your other creations?
What are some fun things you’d like to add to your life? Do you like to travel? Do you like to ski? Do you have a bucket list of items, adventures you’d like to add to your life?
Or do you want to learn a new language, take an international trip to someplace you’ve never been? Maybe it’s a trip to Macchu Picchu or the Egyptian pyramids or Paris or London…..where have you always wanted to visit?
Maybe it’s some things you desire to create, a book, a cd, a holistic healing center. Let your motivator help you – if you want to add more value to your website, what things can you give away for free to inspire people? What would it take to create that?
Write down your clear goals, your targets. You might have 10 things on a list, it may help you to look at it every day. Some people use vision boards, finding images of things that motivate them. Some people write every morning. Some people do a visualization, a meditation and send it out to the universe for supplemental support energy that way.
Use whatever works for you, but get clear on the energy of what you desire to create, so that you know what you are working toward.
Allow your specifics to change. Maybe it’s for the better, don’t fight with the flow of energy. For example, one of my targets is to facilitate Access Consciousness core classes, and to have six or more people in them. I had one person that had requested Foundation class on specific days, it felt light to do it, so I said yes.
However, because of the weird days I didn’t publicize it much, just asked a few people, and really didn’t get anyone else to commit. Now we’ve been shifting. We asked some questions around it, and chose to push it back a couple of weeks and changed the days some.
So now I have more time to tell others about it and what else is possible? Perhaps this will allow more people to show up for the class, creating more energy. Or maybe it’ll be just one or two people, that’s ok. The target is what your shooting for. It doesn’t mean you’re a failure if it doesn’t occur right away. What else is possible here?
Don’t insist your goal needs to happen on your original terms, be flexible and see what magic can be created by asking the Universe to assist.
Be yourself, call on your motivation, your why, and know why you want that goal. Is it still a priority? Is it yours or someone else’s? Make sure you’re doing things for YOUR MOTIVATION, YOUR WHY, not your parents’, your partner’s or your friends’.
Ask the universe for support. How can this turn out more magical than I ever dreamed possible? Invite the co-creation from the ‘Verse.
Do you have some short-term goals? What are your 1-3 month short term goals? What are some 6-12 month longer term goals? Eighteen months from now? What about 2 year goals? 5 year?
Do you have a strategy in place, a system to get there? What if you asked open-ended questions that welcome more possibilities? If you have the energy of what you desire to create, you will recognize a match. Maybe you just hit it off with someone, the energy is expansive, cool, ask some questions, are they someone you can create x,y,z with?
Use that tool, light, expansive vs. heavy, contractive. Have crystal clear goals or targets, get the energy of what you desire to create, and ask the universe to add to it in magical ways you’ve never imagined possible. Oh, and, um, HAVE FUN!!!
If you have a goal to get more out in the world with your mission and vision, consider the possibility of using the Empower Network as one means of getting the word out, and to add wealth at the same time. It’s a pretty cool system, great to have the support of others along your way of being more of you. Click here to find out about the $25 blogging system.
Have you ever on a whim while driving home stopped at the local 7-11 for a drink and run into an old friend you’ve been thinking about but haven’t seen in a long time? Isn’t that fun?! When you follow the energy, it felt light to stop and get something to drink, and you walk right into a synchronicity the universe had possibly arranged…..
That’s what I’m talking about when I say Be Present! Be Here Now! Live with awareness of your intuition. It makes life MoRE MAGicaL!
Some people call it choosing in 10 second increments, that works too. In other words, you plan to drive home a certain way, you get an idea, a feeling, maybe an image of stopping somewhere. So you do. And you get MaGiC!
I love it when that gets created and I follow the energy.
I remember when I was in college on a semester study abroad, before the whole semester started I went a couple weeks early with some friends and went to Scandinavia, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. We were staying at hostels, went from London to Copenhagen and then up to Norway, the four of us. We met some cute guy about our age from Philadelphia at one of the youth hostels that wanted to go on the fjord ride not far away the next day. My friends were planning to go further west to the coast and I didn’t know if I wanted to rush through all that as I was going to split off from my friends in a few days to go visit a high school boyfriend of mine in Stockholm. So I chose to go with this new guy from Philly on the fjord ride.
While I was on the fjord ride, I recognized a couple, but I couldn’t place them. Several times I was going to approach them, but didn’t, couldn’t catch their eye, they were pretty into each other.
So I just kept turning it over in my mind, and when I saw the woman leaving the coach with a viola case in hand, all of a sudden it dawned on me who they were! Music (piano and viola) professors at Luther College in Iowa, where I was had spent a couple of weeks studying piano with him four years prior!
So cool! I LOVE SERENDIPITIES!
So I found them in the village after we got off the coaches and I HAD to talk with them now that I’d figured out who they were. So fun! They remembered me and what a coincidence to meet some fellow Iowans four years later in Iowa. I almost studied piano, and he was one I was considering studying with.
So if I had NOT been IN THE MOMENT, if I had not followed the energy, doing the Be Here Now thing, I would NOT have had that MaGicAL experience! It truly was great fun to talk with them and share our interest in the coincidence.
So choosing on intuition, on how you sense the energy…on how does it seem to you, you planned to do this drive, say, is it still a good direction? What about now? What about now?
Living in the moment, being present, Be Here NOW! I invite you to use this, and to welcome it and play with it in your life. I wonder how much MORE magic you will create!
Be Here Now. Don’t stick with decisions and conclusions you made years ago where the winds of change have blown. Would you stay a shorthand teacher, or teach typing on typewriters even though everyone else in the world uses computers, would your school even offer it if it’s not used? Why would you make a decision or conclusion in your life and then stick it out if it’s not aligned with you now? When it doesn’t work for you anymore? If it makes you miserable – we seem to think there’s no choice. There is! There is always another possibility!
Honor the present…..the moment…Be Here Now.

Welcome to Key #12 to creating Your More Magical Life: Allowance!
Everyone has their own experiences, their own background, their own interesting point of view. There are so many different perspectives on things, why would we want someone else to align and agree with us?
Have you ever resisted and reacted to someone else’s point of view?
Congress does it daily! Ha! See the video on what the story of the six blind men and the elephant have to do with this post.
What if you didn’t have to prove that you were right? Or that someone else was wrong? Or that you were wrong and someone else is right? What if you could be in allowance of their opinion?
Interesting Point of View I have that point of view, Interesting point of view they have that point of view.
You can change your point of view tomorrow.
If you are in allowance, you can be open to more possibilities in your life. You don’t get stuck quite so much. You allow others their opinion and honor it, respect it.
Defending your point of view as right is one of the things that gets us stuck in our lives. We also will not see other options and possibilities, so it’s a great limitation we impose on ourselves.
Allowance lets you be free of that limitation.
Resisting and reacting to someone else’s point of view is also a sticking point. If you try to convince someone else that we don’t have to get fatter as we age, or that it doesn’t have anything to do with heredity, you are also planting that resistance energy in your body.
Allowance is the key to not keeping that energy stuck in your body as well. Interesting point of view. Ah!
Have you ever found by talking or sharing what you know while teaching, that you have a lot of inner wisdom and knowledge inside?
Have you ever been teaching a class and have words just flow out of you?
Have they ever sent chills up your spine?
Have you ever meditated?
I think I was lucky in my chosen path. I was intrigued at a young age with the the idea of past lives and the possibility of reincarnation because of some of my angelic experiences and also from books I had read describing people remembering and going back to past lives and between lives during hypnosis.
When I was attending Iowa State University in Ames, I discovered a school in Des Moines, Iowa that offered past life readings and taught classes in self-development. I really wanted a past life reading, and saw that you got one with the classes at lesson 8 as a teaching tool / bonus. The classes sounded very intriguing to me, so I figured I might as well do the classes and get the free past life reading after a couple of months.
So I went. I tried to get a couple of friends to join me, but they were not as interested. I drove down weekly to the evening 3 hour class. I was exposed to very strict discipline of the mind. Ideas were presented to me that I’d never really thought about. It was fascinating, the eastern philosophy and application of the yogic mind.
So I worked with mental exercises to discipline my mind. To stop the monkey mind, the distractions, the chatter. I used candles to focus on as well as a mirror and myself. It was all extremely challenging in a way I’d not explored before.
Then they presented meditation.
Wow. What was I listening for? The way they taught meditation in my class in 1984 was called “expectant listening.” They had you do some mental clearing techniques and ask a question or set an intention, and then just expectantly listen, wait quietly for an insight, an answer, maybe a flash of inner wisdom.
I was never quite sure, especially at the beginning, what I was listening for. Was God going to speak to me? What about my angels? What was going to happen? I would go off on tangents in my mind when I would forget to stay focused. Sometimes the tangents would bring insights.
I figured I was listening for My inner wisdom, but how would I know when I got it?
I invite you to play with this. What is your inner wisdom? Is that when you feel light? Expansive? Connected to source, and things flow with ease?
How will you know what your inner wisdom is without playing with it? Asking for it? Noticing? Observing?
Use that previous tool, a truth will make you feel lighter, expansive, happier and a lie will make you feel heavier, contracted, small.
Have you ever spent time out in nature? Do you expand out into the hills, the woods, the mountains, the sky, the forests? Connect to the oceans, the rivers, the stars above, the earth below. Expand out into the universe as far as you’d like. Stay connected with your body. Your body is connected to this expansive nature as well, it can sense so much.
So play, play with your inner wisdom, play with your expansive nature. Play with what feels light, what feels heavy, and notice the difference. Be in your awareness.
You will discover and create MORE MAGIC in your life!!!!
Choose to think differently. Choose to be open. Open to possibilities.
Years ago I was taught that this is a free will planet. We each have the free will to make our personal choices. Your choices create your responses, they also create possibilities. What you are open to, you can receive.
If you do not see the handsome, brunette man next to you in the checkout line because you are only looking for a tall, blonde man that looks like Sting, rather than someone who would nurture you and with whom you could have fun, you will miss that. You will be closed, you will not be aware that he could be a possibility of a friend, a connection, perhaps even the lover you are searching for.
If you perpetuate this thinking, you will retell your story to yourself to prove you are right, that there “aren’t any guys out there for me…”
How many areas of our lives do we do this?
Our choices create our reality. Our choices create the possibilities.
Our choices create the way we not only experience the world, but our awareness of it as well.
Everyday can be sacred. Everyday can be a mystical experience.
What will you choose?
The capital t Truth – real knowledge has everything to do with awareness.
This is Water. Your choices create your experience.
