“When we create something, we always create it first in a thought form. If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations, and events which conform to our positive expectations.” -Shakti Gawain

I have been studying my visioning board lately and realizing how much of my future I have already formed in my mind. I can see a path to an extraordinary life, and it is through a daily practice of opening my mind and my heart. My mind on meditation is clearer, fuller and listening. The more I practice, the more I can pull back the layers of frenzy and noise that has been filling a void that is only stillness. Nothing scary at all.

In fact, according to the images on the board, I am finally able to relax and feel the peace in me. A resting state actually lets me wake up to the joy and gratitude in my life. It is all very sensory. Air in my hair, sweet fruits dripping juice, a deep jar of golden thick honey streaming off a spoon into a steaming cup of rose tea. I want my life to be a surrender to the sensuous. I want to always know the feel of a kiss, not as a memory but as a conversation that brings me closer to the truth of my marriage.

I know that my life will increasingly be about a life-changing book which in the writing has helped me to get better at love every day. The abundant and heartfelt affirmations that have been flowing in today about my book, Love that Works make me confident that my guide will be life changing for many more than just me. Learning to practice the art of sustained love is the seed, the heart of what this life is all about.

I am divinely inspired to listen for the quiet wisdom that comes through but is not of me. I don’t want to waste a moment in anything less than what I am dreaming of, what can bring light and smiles.
