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,

A Simple Tool to Make 2016 Your Best Year Yet

Happy New Year! To celebrate the start of 2016, I have a special gift for you: a simple practice that completely changed my life, and enabled me to stay happy, focused, positive, and on track toward my dreams.

You see, I used to find it easy to get sidetracked from my dreams. One moment, I’d be creating a life I loved… and the next, I’d slip into negativity and self-sabotaging thoughts, or get distracted and lose an hour that I’d planned to spend working toward my goals.

When I mastered this simple tool, not only did every single day become happier and more fulfilling, but I made much faster progress toward my dreams!

If you want to be happier every day, and make 2016 the best year you’ve ever had, please take three minutes to watch my special New Year’s video:

Did you know that there is a proven 5-step formula for creating a vision for a life you’d love living in 2016? I recently shared this formula on my ‘How to Create a 2016 You LOVE’ online visioning workshop, which attracted thousands of people from all over the world!

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?

Miracles,

Mary

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…)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve created a special Thanksgiving video message for you. I’ve included a fun, 7-day experiment as well to make this season even brighter.

Enjoy the video.

Today is a day to celebrate family, friendship and life. Today is a wonderful day to be alive. It’s THE best day and can never be repeated again.

Let’s amp up the gratitude today, so we are creating a greater, grander, fuller expression of our Self.

I wish the best for you and your loved ones on this special day.

Share the Gift Inside Your Story

I was talking with a friend a little while ago who shared with me his story about a particularly tragic event in his life.  The story about this event – the version he was choosing to tell – was very sad.

 Over time he decided one day, I’m going to stop telling that version of the story.  I’m going to tell a new story.  It wasn’t that the tragedy hadn’t happened, it was just that he realized the gift inside it, and wanted to share a story from higher ground.

So today, I invite you to identify any story you’ve been telling about your life of limitation, lack, holding back – of a recurring theme of how things don’t work out for you, that keeps you limited or struggling.  I think every one of us has something like that.

What if you just decided that’s no longer your current story?  That’s the story of your past. I invite you to re-frame that old story as a new story about how you received a gift from life.

So what was the gift inside that particular struggle?  What new story will you tell to share that gift?

To Sharing your Gifts,

Mary

Your Wisdom Self

Let’s spend a moment really deeply contacting the real Self. The Self that is the I am that is breathing you. It is the I am that you are before you took on this human birth, and after you lay this human body down for the last time.

For a moment, take a deep breath with me. Inhale … exhale … as you breathe just notice your body. Feel the weight of your clothing and the air touching your exposed skin. Now for a moment, notice your thinking. What you were thinking before you opened your email? What are you thinking about now? Notice your thinking.

Now for a moment, notice your feelings … whether you’ve been feeling happy or sad, concerned or content, or something else. What is the feeling that has been the predominant feeling state you’ve been in today?

Now ask yourself this question, who is it in me that can notice my body, but is not my body? Who is it that can notice my thinking but is more than the thought itself? Who is it that can notice my feeling, but is not the emotion? That One is your real self, your wisdom self.

That One, is completely at peace right now. That One, knows your purpose, and the solutions to any challenge before you. You can make moments like these whenever you choose, by simply pausing for a moment, making contact with your real Self, and accessing that place of deep peace and wisdom.

Trust your Deep Wisdom Self,

Mary

Become The Change

In 1998, I had the privilege of standing on the stage of the United Nations with Mahatma Gandhi’s and Martin Luther King’s children and grandchildren. We were launching a season for nonviolence, which was a 64 day period between the 50th anniversary of Gandhi’s death and the 30th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death, both of which were by assassination.

The quote that is most attributed to Mahatma Gandhi’s is: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Gandhi’s grandchildren said this was misquoted. Their grandfather was very specific in choosing his words. He understood how words can become reality. According to them, his quote was actually, “Become the change you wish to see in the world.”

A Story From the Buddha

Today I want to share with you a story from the Buddha … .

It is said that his most powerful teaching moment ever, was when he silently held up a rose before his students. The way he regarded that flower, and then his students, was a message to everyone there that the power and wonder of the aliveness, and his appreciation for it, his way of seeing and feeling it, was the deepest truth of life. It was an instruction in enlightened living.

Today, may Life itself be your greatest message, and everywhere you turn may you find your appreciation of life expanding in everything that you see.

Believing in You,

Mary

Goal Setting

Goal-setting is a drag for most people. It’s very easy to daydream about something we would like; finding the love of our life, having the money that can afford us the freedom we desire, having the career that matters to us, enjoying better, vibrant health, but it’s hard to actually set a goal and then even more challenging to achieve it.

The reasons most people don’t achieve their goals is fear, limitation-based thinking and procrastination.

In other words, we imagine having the life we really want and before long, doubt and worry sneak in. We think, “Who am I to think I can do this?” We get dissuaded and distracted. “This isn’t a good time,” we tell ourselves. Or we make excuses and think, “I can think better when I respond to these emails… finish the laundry… clear out this mess in the living room first.”
