I’m no Marianne Williamson (I think she’s amazing) and I still struggle with life’s curve balls, boulders in my path and daily challenges, but I have learned some powerful lessons in my time here on Earth. Most of them I did not learn the easy way. I grew up kicking and screaming until I finally learned that I was only sabotaging myself and everyone around me. There are universal truths that actually will change your world once you start applying them to everything you do. And the really crazy thing is that magical things will begin to change for you when you begin and commit.
It all begins with a thought! You’ve read it. You even sort of believe it and yet…it’s the absolute truth. It all begins with a thought. What you think about is what you will end up with. If you think negative thoughts or worry about lack – it’s exactly what you attract to yourself. Your thoughts are energy and energy attracts a like vibration. It’s funny because I know some really negative people and they have really negative activity in their lives, but they just think they’re unlucky. They aren’t. They’re attracting it. Even if you aren’t totally convinced – give changing your thoughts a whirl and let me know what happens.
If you can dream it – you can have it! Okay, maybe not exactly as you dream it, but the reality is that we were put here to live abundant lives in every possible way. Take time to visualize and dream about your life. Throw all the logic out the window when you’re daydreaming, have fun visualizing the life you want. I spent years dreaming about moving to a smaller town with a less hectic lifestyle and it took a long time for it to happen, but it did, because I never stopped dreaming. Dream friggin’ away!
You are meant to shine brightly! There is only one you in the entire Universe! Think about that for that a minute – YOU – only one you. There is no one else exactly like you! Do you find that scary or when you think about it does it invigorate you? I hope you feel more alive! You were born enough! Whatever your circumstances are you must find a way to move past them and sing the song you were born to sing and share your gifts with others. Stop playing it safe and go for it! Seriously – what have you got to lose? Go on and SHINE!
There is plenty to go around! Contrary to what the media tells us – the Universe is good, abundant and there is enough. The only time there isn’t enough is when greed gets in the way, but that’s humans, not the Universe. I realize that money is powerful, especially when are living in lack or you don’t believe that there will ever be enough. I battle this one too. I think we women all do if we’re being honest. It shows up at the strangest times. Begin your journey with money by learning to love money. Money is good because it can and does do good in the world. Money loves positive energy. If you struggle with money, I’m going to recommend a lovely little book by Meadow DeVor called Money Love. It’s a real eye-opener and Meadow writes from her personal experience of how she went from hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to total money freedom! It’s fascinating.

Listen to your intution! You know all those little messages you get that seem to come from nowhere? That’s your intuition talking and it’s almost always right. We don’t listen because it doesn’t always tells us what we want to hear. I like to think of my intuition as a God Wink. It’s God’s way of saying, “Hey Cindy- wake up and pay attention.” Miraculously when I began listening and following my instincts, things changed for me and for the better. Today, I stop and listen for my God Wink before I proceed.
You will always find a reason to stop or never get started. We can all come up with a million reasons why we shouldn’t try something new. Here’s where your inner critic and ego have a field day. They don’t want you to change – NOT NOW – NOT EVER! Don’t listen to them. In the case of you expanding your life and changing what isn’t working, they are not your friends. When the doubt enters, stop and ask yourself if this real or if this is fear speaking? The majority of the time – it’s fear. Don’t listen to it!
One step forward yields big payoffs. You don’t have to believe this but I promise you, the first time you actually take a step forward towards your dream or goal – you send a signal that you’re ready and you set new energy in motion. Just try it.
You don’t need to know all the details. If you’re anything like I am, I passionately want to know the details and the outcome. Guess what? It’s simply not possible because frankly, you aren’t meant to know. Your job is to listen to your God Winks – pay attention and keep moving forward even if it feels impossible at the time. One tiny step forward indicates your ready.
Have Faith! Simply put you can’t be afraid and have faith at the same because the two cancel each other out. It’s easy to be afraid. Most people are. But you’re a Lionhearted Woman and somehow, some way you have to have faith in this process – in this journey because it’s why you’re here.
You are not alone. You do not ever have to walk the path alone. You have friends and family and there are coaches and masterminds aplenty. If you are serious about changing your life and creating magic moments for you and others, then stop thinking that the only way is to do it alone. Open your heart – allow yourself to be vulnerable – reach out and JUMP!
Above all else – enjoy the journey! Laughter and playful moments are what we’re meant to experience. We’re not supposed to be so burdened in our day-to-day lives. Do silly things. Eat popcorn for dinner if you want. Step outside and visit a random place. Eat ice cream. Enjoy the ride because it’s not going to last forever.
