942 Comments on the Mind Movies Blog!?!?

Leave a Comment

I just checked out the Mind Movies blog. They have 942 comments on the last post – the video with Frank Kern and Ryan Higgins.

I think the most comments I’ve ever had here at Evolving Times are the 65 comments on the Top 10 Life Lessons I’ve Learned From My Daughter Post!

They’ve got some serious “buzz” going on over there. And that’s a great thing! I mean, they’re going to expose a huge new audience to Law of Attraction terminology and tools. And that means a lot more Deliberate Creators to play with out here on the Leading Edge!

If you haven’t gotten your 6 free pre-made Mind Movies go grab them at the Mind Movies blog. And maybe you can add comment number 943 while you’re there!

Does It Pay to Be a Slacker?


I was out for a mountain bike ride with a friend on Saturday morning. He’s just “survived” a massive round of layoffs at his company. And as we were huffing and puffing our way up one of the longer, but not-so-steep climbs, we chatted about his situation.

He’s a great worker – friendly, positive, excellent work ethic – but since the company laid off over 30% of the workers in his office and asked those who remained to take on the added work-load with no additional benefits, he’s been having a difficult time getting motivated to do the great work he’s known for.

He’s been talking to some of his ex-colleagues who were laid off. They all got 6-months of severance pay and are enjoying an extended “paid vacation.”

That’s when I told him that sometimes it does pay to be a slacker!

We laughed, but ultimately agreed that we would not want to be a resident of slackerdom, even if we would get the occasional treat.

As a Deliberate Creator, have you ever been in a situation like that? Have you ever seen others receiving “gifts” while you seem to have been “passed over?”

If so, what lesson did you take from that experience? Does it pay to be a slacker? Or is there some other message for Deliberate Creators?

Law of Attraction Meets Internet Marketing

Leave a Comment

I’ve been promoting the concept of “Attraction-based-marketing” for years. I teach it in my Enlightened Entrepreneurs Course, and practice it in my own business.

So I’m thrilled to see that Frank Kern, one of my Internet Marketing role models, has interviewed Ryan Higgins, the creator of the Mind Movies video vision board software.

If you’ve never watched one of Frank Kern’s videos they’re a hoot. And in this one, you’ll get to hear about his personal experience with the Mind Movies system.

The Deliberate Creator’s Declaration of Independence


Declaration of Independence

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to dissolve the Mental, Emotional, Physical and Energetic bonds which have connected one person to another, and to assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and equal privileges to which the laws of the Universe entitle them, their own self-respect requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Deliberate Creators are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creative Source with certain unalienable rights and that among these are life, liberty, abundance, joy and the pursuit of happiness.

To secure these rights, certain thoughts, beliefs and ideologies have been instituted among men and women, deriving their just powers from the consent of the people. And whenever any of these thoughts, beliefs or ideologies becomes destructive to these unalienable rights, it is the responsibility of Deliberate Creators to alter or abolish them, and to institute new ones, laying their foundation on such principles and organizing their powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to empower their natural states of abundance, joy and love.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that beliefs long established should not be changed for light and transient causes. But experience has shown that individuals are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the beliefs to which they are accustomed. But when existing thoughts, beliefs and ideologies sabotage, subvert and ultimately destroy the will of Deliberate Creators, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such belief systems, and to create and embrace new beliefs that empower their strength, prosperity and evolution.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these Deliberate Creators; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of thought, belief and ideology. The history of the existing Prevailing Belief System is a history of ongoing injury and usurpation, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these Deliberate Creators.

To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

  • This belief system would have us base our actions on fear.
  • This belief system holds that we lack personal power.
  • This belief system affirms that we are unable to manifest our desires.
  • This belief system defines the world as a dangerous place.
  • This belief system alleges that scarcity and lack is our natural state.
  • This belief system asserts that we are meant to struggle and suffer.
  • This belief system avows that vulnerability, intimacy and trust are weaknesses.
  • This belief system affirms that we are unworthy, undeserving and not good enough.

We, therefore, the representatives of the Deliberate Creators of the World, appealing to the Creative Source for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of all Deliberate Creators, solemnly publish and declare, that we are, and of right ought to be free and independent from the Prevailing Belief System; that we are absolved from all allegiance to those beliefs and that all Mental, Emotional, Physical and Energetic connections between us and the Prevailing Belief System, are and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent Deliberate Creators, we have full power to attract our desires, seek ever greater joy, engage in inspired action, bask in the limitless abundance of this Universe, and do all other things which true Deliberate Creators may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Creative Source, we mutually pledge to each other our support, our encouragement and our sacred honor.

If you would like to join us in declaring your independence from the prevailing belief system, add your name to the comments below. Every signature added to this document weakens the prevailing belief system and strengthens the new beliefs that empower our ability to create the lives we desire and the world we want!

James Ray’s Harmonic Wealth Weekend Begins Today

Leave a Comment

Well I’m jazzed! Today is the first day of the Harmonic Wealth Weekend with James Ray. I’ve been waiting for this ever since signing up back in February. And since I’m just coming off of the Peak Potentials Millionaire Mind Intensive a few weeks ago, I am already primed and definitely ready to go!

It’s unlikely that I’ll have time to write anything during the event: I’ve been told that these weekends are packed and go very late. But I’m sure that I’ll have lots to say about after I get back.

The weekend will be doubly interesting because my birth-mother is here with me. She flew down from Boise to spend a couple of days with Ella and me and attend this event. I will be very interested to see how her presence here effects my experience.

No matter what happens, I’m sure I’ll have many insights and aha moments to share with you in the coming days and weeks. So stay tuned!

Coincidence Or A Burning Ring Of Fire?


Now I’m not a big believer in “coincidence.” I find that when I remain open to the signs and signals from the Universe my life tends to flow much more smoothly.

That said, there are certainly times when I’m better at picking up on those signs even when the “coincidences” are a bit subtle and require some stretching to turn them into signs.

And there are other times when I’m a bit slow on the uptake and I either miss the sign altogether or the Universe is forced to send me one of those unmistakable, “bang-bang Maxwell’s Silver Hammer on the head” type of signals that does not need a whole of stretching!

I think you know the kind I’m talking about!

Well last weekend I got one of those.

It began on Saturday morning at the monthly meeting of the Drop In Law of Attraction group. We were exploring the connection between the Comfort Zone and the Law of Attraction. A great topic by the way!

During our discussion, after I had led the group through a visualization where they got to explore the edges of their comfort zone, one of the participants shared that the edge of her comfort zone was a circle of fire surrounding her. I immediately began singing the Johnny Cash song, “Ring of Fire.” I’m not sure where it came from. I’m not a big Johnny Cash fan and have only heard that song a handful of times. But out it came.

So there’s #1!

Later that night at a housewarming party for a friend who had just returned to Sonoma County, I was playing my guitar and singing along with a few of the party guests. Although my song list is significantly shorter than before my daughter was born, I was doing my best at taking requests. Some of them I could muddle through, most of them I either didn’t know or had forgotten.

And then, out of the blue, someone asked if I could play… you guessed it, “Ring of Fire.”

Now in all my years of leading sing-alongs at parties I have NEVER had anyone request Ring of Fire! What’s up with that?

Someone there knew the basic chord progression and another person knew the lyrics, so we were able to put together a passable version (although Johnny was probably rolling over).

There’s #2.

The next day at our local Farmer’s Market, my daughter and I ran into one of her pre-school friends and her dad, Mike Emerson. Ella and Sequoia started playing a bit while Mike and I chatted.

I knew that Mike was a keyboard player and since I’ve been interested in taking some piano lessons, I checked in to see if he knew of any good teachers in the area. Turns out he teaches as well as performs. Cool.

So as we talked about schedules he said that he wouldn’t be available until late in the month because he’s doing a quick European tour with… are you ready for this? Carlene Carter.

Now if you’re not a Country Music fan and don’t know who Carlene Carter is – I didn’t – she’s the daughter of June Carter – who happens to have written Ring of Fire – and Stepdaughter of Johnny Cash – who as you now know made it famous! And Ring of Fire is one of the songs they play in their shows.

So there’s the magic #3 and Maxwell’s bang on my head!

Yes I got it!

The sign that is. Still working out the details of the meaning. Sometimes with these “coincidences” the meaning is obvious and sometimes not so much. With this one I’ve got some ideas, but I haven’t come to any conclusive opinion.

I do know that I’ve been having fun imitating Johnny’s deep, gravelly voice as I belt out “I fell into a burning ring of fire…”

What do you think? What message is the Universe sending me? I’d love to hear your take. And in case you haven’t heard Ring of Fire, here are the lyrics:

Love is a burning thing
and it makes a fiery ring
bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire…

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns, burns, burns
the ring of fire the ring of fire.

The taste of love is sweet
when hearts like our’s meet.
I fell for you like a child
oh, but the fire went wild..

I fell in to a burning ring of fire…..[etc]

Teleseminar Series: Energy Awareness Skills For Deliberate Creators

Leave a Comment

If you’re a SERIOUS Deliberate Creator you’ll want to check out my new teleseminar series:

Energy Awareness Skills for Deliberate Creators.

It’s a 6-week course that will teach you how to work directly with your personal energy to increase your intuition and significantly ramp up your ability to attract your desires!

As a Deliberate Creator, you know that Positive Thinking is great, Positive Emotions are even a bit better and Inspired Action is best! But you also understand that beneath all of it is Energy!

Why not work at the Energetic Source?

It’s not as difficult as you might think. And it’s certainly not impossible. In fact there have been systems of energy perception and manipulation for thousands of years.

I’ll be honest with you: I didn’t believe human energy systems when I was first exposed to them. I was definitely skeptical of the thought that I could (or someone else) “read” my energy systems and use that information to gather information and improve my life.

But I’ve experienced far too many “weird coincidences” to write off energy work to “chance.”

This 6-week course will give you the knowledge and tools to begin exploring your own energy systems so that you can align your energy with your desires.

Here’s some of what we’ll cover:

An Intuitive Meditation Technique that will improve your intuition and help you connect with your internal guidance system

The ability to consciously ground your energy and your intentions into the physical world – A critical component in your success as a Deliberate Creator!

Practical tools to strengthen your Intuition and Energy Awareness.

An intuitive technique for making difficult decisions.

An understanding of the Basic Human Energy Systems including:

  • The Grounding System
  • The Auric System
  • The Chakra System

Here’s the bottom line… If you’re a SERIOUS Deliberate Creator the material in this teleseminar series will take your Law of Attraction work to the next level – the energetic level!

You can read more about the course and register here.

And fyi, there are two Fast Action bonuses worth over $325 available to the first few people to register.

Free Teleclass – The Fulcrum Point

Leave a Comment

The Power of Positive Thinking is great… Until you get stuck on a deeply embedded, long-standing limiting belief. Then it can get a bit tricky.

Einstein pointed out that we can’t solve a problem at the same level of thinking or consciousness from which that problem was created. And yet, that’s what we usually try to do!

If we catch ourselves having a limiting thought, our first reaction is usually to try to change the thought. It can work, but it takes a lot of work, a lot of time, and a lot of diligence.

There’s a simpler way:

Shift to another level of perception.

Our thoughts are energy. So too are our emotions, physical sensations and intuitive perceptions. And every thought has a thread that ties it to every other perceptual level.

So if you move from the level of thought to the level of, say, emotion, and find the thread from that limiting thought, you can change the energy at the level of emotion which immediately creates a similar change in the energy of the thought.

Learning to move easily, gracefully and intentionally between your perceptual levels is an important skill to master if you want to be the Deliberate Creator of your life!

Later today (April 23rd) I’m offering a free teleclass on The Fulcrum Point a simple but extremely effective technique that can help you shift your perspective and find the perceptual level that will allow you to change those difficult thoughts and enhance your ability to attract your desires.

Earth Day, A New Earth, And Energetics


My daughter and I had a great day at our local Earth Day festival on Sunday. Compostable balloons from Whole Foods, Seed Balls from a local summer camp, some great music and our awesome Sunday farmer’s market combined for an awesome celebration. In the afternoon I planted some salad greens, sunflowers (volunteers from the compost pile) and more broccoli in our garden.

I love days like that and I embrace the belief that “every day is Earth day!” It’s not always easy to act in ways that feel nurturing to the Earth. But by staying conscious about our relationship to this planet, our home, we can begin to live and act as if today and every day is Earth Day.

There was a beautiful coincidence – if you believe in such things – in the timing of this week’s A New Earth webcast with Eckhart Tolle and Oprah. This week’s discussion focused on the discovery and exploration of Inner Space and the stillness you find there.

This is what Tolle writes about Stillness:

Stillness is really another word for space. … You are never more essentially, more deeply, yourself than when you are still. When you are still, you are who you were before you temporarily assumed this physical and mental form called a person. You are also who you will be when the form dissolves. When you are still, you are who you are beyond your temporal existence: consciousness—unconditioned, formless, eternal.

It is through stillness that we can truly connect with the Earth. It is from our Inner Space that we can see the Earth not as an object but as a Being. From within the Stillness we can connect and communicate with and learn from the Earth.

The Earth is an amazing teacher! She has taught me much about the Law of Attraction. The Earth is the ultimate Deliberate Creator.

One of the reasons that many people struggle to attract their desires is because they focus on sending their intentions “out” to the Universe. In order to attract things in the physical world it is equally important to send those intentions “down” into the physical Earth. The Earth provides the medium within which your desires will become “real.”

The ability to ground our desires into the Earth was one of the tools we explored in the free Energetics of Attraction teleclass last week. If you missed it you can access the recording on the Energetics of Attraction Resource Page.

You’ll also get access to the free report on the Harmonics of Human Awareness. I agree with what Eckhart says in the quote below. When you are detached, or I prefer to call it fully present on all levels of perception, not locked in at one level of awareness, you experience and enjoy life more fully!

Being detached does not mean that you cannot enjoy the good that the world has to offer. In fact, you enjoy it more. … When you are detached, you gain a higher vantage point from which to view the events in your life instead of being trapped inside them. You become like an astronaut who sees the planet Earth surrounded by the vastness of space and realizes a paradoxical truth: The earth is precious and at the same time insignificant.

What steps will you take today to explore your Inner Space, honor the Earth and fully enjoy all the good this world and this life has to offer?
