Attention and Intention

What do you want? Have you stated the intention of your desire? Did you know that is just the first step? Once you know what you want, you need t bring that front and center. The only way to do that is to think about it and focus your energy on it. When you think about, do you say, “I can have this!” or “I don’t deserve this!”? In other words, what do you do […]


Being “On Fire!”

Give a man a match and he’ll be warm for a night, set a man on fire and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.   ~Jed McKenna, The Theory of Everything Have you ever been “On Fire?” I don’t mean it in the literal way as in, as in being engulfed in a blaze.

This is often a very touchy topic, but I wouldn’t be me, if I wasn’t willing to put my foot in my mouth. Have you ever thought about how your friends or those around you affect your life, as in your thoughts, feelings and attitudes? If you’ve been trying to change your life and how it’s working for you, one of the things you must change is all the negativity that goes on around you. […]


Where is your Attention?

“With intention and attention aligned, we have a lens so finely tuned that it can freeze-frame a nanosecond and zoom into Now. – Kathleen Dowling Singh, The Grace in Aging Are you focused on what you want or is you mind wandering across a spectrum of wants and not-wants, shoulds and shouldn’ts, successes and failures? The sooner you bring your attention into alignment with intention, the sooner you will begin to come back into balance […]
