You Have The Power Over Your Mind

A wise man named Marcus Aurelius once said, “You have power over your own mind – not over events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

When I applied this quote to my life, I gained the ability not only to stay calm when my circumstances seemed overwhelming, but to use a simple shift in my thoughts to turn serious problems into unappreciated blessings.


How to Practice Mindfulness


Have you ever had a day when you felt irritated, stressed and strained, and every little thing that happened seemed to make it worse?

People around the world, especially Americans, often report feeling overwhelmed by busy-ness. We’re surrounded by electronics, opportunities, choices and information, all coming at us at high speed, and sometimes our brains struggle to sort through the deluge.

People today have to make more decisions in 24 hours than our ancestors did in a year. Even little things, like buying a pair of athletic shoes, are more complicated than they used to be, with tens of thousands of options vying for our attention in this one small area of life alone.

Our conscious mind may not fully pick this up, but our subconscious does, and this constant stimulation leaves us overwhelmed, tired and stressed.


Working With Intention

Sometimes the greatest lessons come from children … . 

I was out to dinner one evening with my granddaughter, Allie, and our host gave her a small place mat menu with a maze on it.  She smiled and said, I want to show you something.  She took her finger to the maze and put it right to the end at the finish and then traced backwards to the beginning.  She then took her pencil and found her way very easily to the end!

She said, When you start at the end first, then you know where you want to end up and it’s easier to find your way.  I said, You know what Allie, that’s just how it is in life.  If you know where you want to end up, it’s a whole lot easier to find your way.

With this lesson, ask yourself:  Where do I want to end up?  Where do I really want to be in relationship to the important people in my life –with the earth, myself and my creative capacity? Where do I want to end up when I put my head on the pillow for the very last time?

Because as Allie pointed out, when you know where you want to end up, it’s a whole lot easier to find your way.

Small Things Count

Mother Teresa once said, We can do no great things; we can do only small things with great love.

What this small woman practiced absolutely transformed the thinking of many, many millions of people on this planet, about what a difference one person can make.

So today, go into everything you’re doing, every conversation you have, and seek – not to do great things – but to do small things, with great love.

Listen To The Love

Have you ever paused to think that you are really a human being, and not a human “doing”?
Today is an invitation for you to pause in your normal activity, to set aside your “to do list” and enter deeply into the magnificent feeling of your “being-ness.”

Today is an opportunity to be available to life as it flows through you. Be available to the mystery today. Be available to the awe, rapture and wonder of your own aliveness. Experience the colors that are around you, the sounds, and notice how everything pulses with energy.

When you pause for a moment and let go of your busyness and your “to do list” you open space for appreciating the here and now. From this pause, that voice in you that always beckons you to more makes itself known.

Listen to the voice of love within you; it is the voice of your own beautiful becoming.

Listen to love.

Live in Wonderment,

Miracles are Natural!

In A Course in Miracles it says, that if you and I are not experiencing miracles on a daily basis, it is we who are out of alignment with the Universe.  Miracles are natural!

What are miracles but the parting of the waters of our problems? What are miracles but the healing of our blindness, so that we can awaken and see?  What are miracles but the healing of where we are paralyzed, so that we can take the steps that are ours to take?

Miracles are natural to you and me because of our nature.  Our nature is to be one with life. If we are not experiencing miracles, it is we who need to shift our attention.

There are miracles all around us!  Will you see them?

How to Overcome the Holiday Blues, and Create a Great 2016

Many of us spend the holiday season giving to others, sharing our love, and enjoying it… but we don’t always take the time to take care of ourselves and our own hopes and dreams!

As a result, some of us end up feeling let down, tired, and unprepared to manifest our dreams in the New Year. I felt that way for a long time… but then I discovered something that changed my life, and I want to share it with you! (more…)

Growing Great Dreams

Nature does not distinguish between what seed falls on the soil.  The earth nourishes whatever seed is planted.  This is the way life works for us as well.

Even though the Universe is for your good, and the Law of Life is for ever-upward expansion and freedom, when you and I get focused on what bothers us, the Universe can only grow for us, that which, we are attending with our attention.

Be mindful of the seeds you plant today, as they become the crop you harvest.  Take your attention away from what worries you, and focus on what you love!

To Growing Great Dreams,


Mary Morrissey
