NEW BOOK Risin’

Click here for:  FULL SYNOPSIS

Folks ask me all the time, so, like, whats the book about?

So, here’s my elevator pitch

It’s a laugh-out-loud commentary on how the world & its people are bat shit, deep fried crazy & we are all sandwiched in the middle trying to skip over the mustard & mayo puddles without slipping on pickles, crying a river from the onions, getting caught in the goo of melty cheese, or stung by a hot ghost pepper.

It’s a survival guide, a manual on Manifestation. A non-fiction journey of bits & pieces of my life & why I think I’m qualified to write such a manifesto. It’s a big fat wonderful resource guide like phone books were in 1980. It’s an indispensable aide for all those looking to enrich, enlighten, evolve, emancipate & straight enumerate… more of that good stuff we all innately seek.

It’s a book on how mastering the Arts of meditation, mindfulness, & manifestation can & will give us all we need to prevail in a world gone mad… so that we can reel our sanity back in from the rough seas off the coast of Crazy-town.

Finally,  a book with a sass mouth  that tells the unabridged truth, breaks rules, & pummels right through Author etiquette with a great big sass plow.

It’s refreshing.

Curious? Good.

Believing in your Dreamz: A commentary

FB_IMG_15018419668052a1a611dbf5b0b177912d529aa8fb1d1

Anyone can write a book.

Whatever that book may be… it has to be believed in. If the Author doesn’t believe in the book, it will get lost in the sauce, get the shaft, & most likely be archived on a dusty shelf some place. That said, authoring a book & then standing behind it, takes a bit of brawn, a bit of courage, a bit of belief, & a bit of serious faith, especially when the content of the book was built from your own core convictions. In this case, the required level of faith is much more significant.

I can’t hide behind an imaginative fictional story I made up. Instead, it’s raw, real, authentic & uncensored, like when a person wear’s their heart on their sleeve sorta thing. I’m putting myself out there so to speak. It takes a bit more bravery & just a dash more dignity. It’s like when a comic jumps on stage for her debut & thinks: “But what if no one laughs?!” And then against all odds, she’s puts ’em all in stitches & makes ’em pee their pants. I won’t make ya pee your pants. But I will shmooze ya with good humor & wild oats. But hey, if ya wanna pee your pants, it’s all you, bra…

I am a one man band that uses all readily available tools to publish my work independently. Self publishing is widely accessible & user-friendly in our current culture. It looks like a bunch of people do it all the time, & somehow it looks easy & effortless. Well, it’s certainly not. It’s a thorough undertaking that must be meticulously crafted & flawlessly executed, & that takes a conscious awareness & core commitment that is unprecedented. Just sayin’…

I’m not trying to boast. I’m not here to conquer, compare or compete. I’m sure there is something for everyone out there in the great mega-verse melting pot of vast sprawling publications. As an Author with a mission, & a message, I’d like to acknowledge how  we are now spotting the map quite generously these days. There’s also quite an emergence of those of us rockin’ enterprises such as seminars, retreats, programs, plans, workshops, cruises, classes, speaker forums, & live symposiums that are extensions of our books.

Everybody claims to have the answer. Everybody’s got the secret formula. Everybody’s got the trendy assessment or clever fix. Everybody’s got the perfect route to freedom & fortune. Everybody’s a coach, mentor & motivational leader. Everybody’s got that thing that everybody else wants. And believe me, I think that this wildly exuberant display of global self expression is glorious. Furthermore, freedom of the press, speech, & religion via the First Amendment is also glorious.

I’m all for these inspiring schools of thought & brands of armchair philosophy, hard core study or just plain depth of life experience. But, there is so many of these self proclaimed gurus now-a-days. We are popping up everywhere it seems, with a website & a buy now button. I’m guilty. We all seem to want to give sage advice, teach tight programs & strategic success plans. It can indeed be over whelming. Instead of seeing that one shiny gem, it blends all together instead like a big fat blinding blob.

Reaching people is an Author’s forte, & making a positive difference with every page turned, is the dream realized. We write because it is our passion. We write because we feel there is a need in our community for what we have to say. Folks are always striving to be better people in some way. People are always looking for improvements & ways to make their lives easier, brighter, balanced, healthy, wealthy, enjoyable, organized, & efficient with more time & less stress & worry.

I’ve stood in long lines to catch sum of those good rays, from all the greats. My bookshelves are buckling & my folders, favorites, & emails are madly multiplicitous with said self-proclaimed gurus. I’m a fan. I’m super supportive of all these self liberating trains to paradise, for sure. Choo! Choo! All aboard! And as much as I do indeed support everybody else’s dreams, I am here today to specifically endorse mine.

So then, before you hop any other train, wait right here first & let me show you something that may be a better deal. Allow me to buff out the blurr & hone in on my little shiny book gem. Not to toot my own horn, but, the new book I’m about to launch just may well be all you need to move forward on any path of personal of development. Brace yourself… here comes that special author belief thing I mentioned earlier… 🙂

>>>>>The principles in the book ooze enthusiasm for life lived in thee most advantageous way. With unhindered advancement, uninhibited character, & unbridled energy, said Author (me)… will bedazzle you with her flow. And, I am not just saying that cause I’m her. 🙂 The reader will benefit thereof, instantly… without having to make a commitment to a project, program, schedule, timetable, or special engagement, & without having to purchase a ticket for a show, take off, attend some pricey weekend retreat or sign up for a webinar yay long & with yay one-time-fee. Not to mention, said reader will be entertained the whole way through with comic relief that is woven right in so silky smooth… like Fluff-a Nutt-a Butt-a & a brotha from anotha motha…

I’m not gonna give my book away for free. My TM teacher back in the 90s, told us that he was charging each of us a fee for the program, because he believed that if ya invest in something, you will be more likely to pay attention, take it seriously, & thus take advantage of it. Turned out to be true. As a result, I diligently learned the skill of Transcendental Meditation effectively at that time. I practice it to this day. I’d say that it was worth every penny. That said, the cost of my book will be reasonable & better yet, like you scored it on the buried discount rack in the far corner of Books-a-million on a rainy day with a scone & cinnamon latte in hand.

I’m writing this little briefing to invite people in. If you are pretty much alone in the world like me, weird things go through your mind like, what if no one shows up? What if no one cares? Not having a significant other, parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, kids or a close circuit of local friends & family that you know for sure will be there indefinitely to support you… kinda feels a little risky to say the least. And no… I don’t belong to a Church. And no.. that’s not what I need or something. Love when people say that. Anyway, basically… I have nothing to lose, everything to gain, & I would be a damn hypocrite, if I didn’t move forward on my path fearlessly despite the whistling tumble weed.

My #1 fan has paws & a tail & if Miss Moose the cat could talk & type, she would be my advocate & agent, I’m quite sure. Special thanks to all my wonderful colleagues & sweetheart clientele at the restaurant, for being so interested & supportive of the fierce creative endeavor I’ve embarked upon with untamed spirit. And to all my friends, fam & loyal fans spread out across the miles, who continue to read, give feedback & show love… your presence is Golden

This new much anticipated book I’m about to launch, is about living your dreams & manifesting prosperous winnings every moment of every day from here on out… from the inside out. So if that is what I set out to do, than by God, Sally… I’m gonna do it! No matter what the little cretin nitpicking voices yip yap inside my head… the thick brawn of this Author… will believe & achieve with sure SUCCESS. I won’t accept anything less at this point. You are either in it to win it, or not in it at all, in my view.

That said, you are invited to join me on the crusade to vibrate at a higher frequency, be best versions, & live life to the fullest. All ya have ta do, is grab your copy as soon as it pops on the scene.

And, to all those who are ready to win it!
Affirmation:
<<<< “I am wildly SUCCESSFUL!!” <<<<

Gratitude: The Real Focus Factor

046cb08c4ba34d58145010b402cc821aThis is not an anomaly. It’s common knowledge that the practice & skill of the art of gratitude builds a certain positive momentum in one’s life. That momentum picks up speed & girth much like a snowball tumbling down a hill. The key to fortune & peace & happiness in all areas of life…is as simple as the pixie dust in a snowball, really. Turn on the gratitude… turn on the steady stream of focus on appreciating what’s good. By doing this, we become powerful beings that amplify light & love. We become unfettered by any & all predetermined limitations, barriers, blocks, or densities. We become free.

0f70987856711b5c5cea932ca740220a

The objective is to build the gratitude momentum into a driving force. Like the electromagnetic current running through the wire streaming to the light switch in the house 24/7. Like the blood coursing through our veins to the heart pump & back again in an endless flow of circulation 24/7. Like the County water supply rushing to the kitchen faucet 24/7. We must develop a continuum of momentum…of GRATITUDE…coursing through the veins of our life experiences, relationships, communications, connections, perceptions & expressions, in order for this virtue to be most effective. This momentum is composed of a state of gratitude via the vehicle of: the observation/(focus) on the good. Our own individual personal power lies….solely within our ability to do this. That’s a true statement…pay close attention: the more we are grateful, the more personal power we harness…to create a life of total fulfillment & joy.

I am fully aware that not everyone is on the same level of learning, same spiritual path, on the same page or even on the same wavelength. But we all can agree on one thing…a smile is a smile. And why are you smiling? Because you are experiencing a happy feeling. Guaranteed, we can all agree, if it is making you smile, you are in the state of appreciating it….whatever it is. So, whatever it is that makes you smile, feel good, secure, at peace, happy, content, warm, fuzzy, empowered, lifted, confident, strong, nourished, beautiful, blessed, included & loved…..observe that. You’re so much prettier or more handsome when you smile!  20161124_195648 (me… grateful for you taking the time to read this!) 🙂

Choose today, to develop a level of continuous observation, of all things that exist within your realm of experience, that are “good” & essentially… what you desire or ultimately want in life. Small manifestations & evidences of your fondest wishes, dreams & desires materialized…count. You may essentially want to win a million dollars, but only win 5$ on a scratch off…be grateful for that five dollar winning & it will multiply…what it is, is evidence of the momentum of manifestation….the more we focus on it the more girth & speed it will gain…the faster the momentum becomes….& voila! We have a winner! Ding! Ding! Ding! Publisher’s Clearing House shows up at your door :)! Point is, don’t ever get dismayed or discouraged…choose gratitude instead. Why? Because what you seek is always on it’s way to you even if it may not appear that way to the naked eye. No need to worry. Practice faith based on this premise. The genuine appreciation of the now, & all the goodies within it….is the most efficient manifestation accelerator & most practical way to fan the flames of your dreams & desires. The more you engage in gratefulness, the more miracles you will see pop up like daisies across the fields of your experience right before your very eyes. This state of mind is affectionately called: “the attitude of gratitude.” Therein lies the birthplace of faith. Like I said…there’s no room for worry….when ya have an “attitude of gratitude.” 9581a74c22c7fed8d22b42501e398709

What is worry?  Worry is the lack of faith. Moreover, Worry is a symptom. It is a symptom of the steadfast observation of lack, limitation, injustice, guilt, fear, sorrow, or the disdain for circumstances or people. The exact opposite of the observation of all things good that we’ve been talking about. Worry is a symptom of the pure observation of the not so good, if you will. The “downward spiral of good” versus the “upward increase of good.” When we are brave enough to behave in a manner that shifts that observation point to the “upward increase of good” position, we become grateful. A state of gratefulness elicits a state of carefree confidence that proliferates the emotions that compose faith.  Faith, is a symptom of a steadfast observation of the upward increase of good. This good is found in any & all evidence of the following things listed below: (and then some)

Abundance; wealth; health; luxury; riches; happiness; laughter; fun; joy; beauty; grace; friendship; love; goodies; snax; bonuses; rewards; plenty; excitement; stability; security; wonder; inspiration; respect; honor; caring; adoration; pets; nature; flow; affection; unity; community; harmony; success; celebration; exhilaration; elevation; satisfaction; playfulness; charm; ease; peace; tranquility; comfort; freedom; demonstrations of faith; demos of dreams realized; demos of Divine design; demos of small miracles, coincidences, gifts, rewards, blessings. 82678-grateful-quotes-about-gratitude

I’m sure we have all had someone tell us to “count our blessings,” as a child, on some occasion. I noticed recently, that now that we are all grown up, if we are “told” that… often times our ego mind hears a condemning command: “Count your blessings, son!” as we cower to the feelings of guilt over feeling like we have not been a good boy or girl & been thankful enough. With all due respect, the ego mind tells me that statement feels like a penance we are told to say after we confess our sins to the priest behind some creepy red curtain. And, if you do not obey, you will then be subject to the likes of Hell.

images-5Reminiscent of the former days of Catechism Sunday School class with wooden desks that smell like dust & pencils. The dense stuffy classroom air not even fit for a hamster tank. Not to mention the crux of it all, the crucifix, the ultimate sacrificial human lamb hung hauntingly on the wall not too far from the rather large numbered loud ticking clock. Both seem as if they will pounce off the wall & get you, if you stare at them for too long… as they work in conjunction to exude that perfect synergetic blend of guilt, fear, & deadlines. Oh that infamous clock & crucifix of every Catholic classroom. “Count your blessings children!” Said the scary dictator/nun/intimidating teacher with a yard stick. No wonder why my Dad’s generation had authority issues…lol. The heavy regime of organized religion was just another organized crime family…if ya ask me. Fear & control…not friendly teachers. images-4

Moving on…another trendy recommendation in the current pop culture Gratitude Movement is: “make a list of all the things you are grateful for.” While the list could be an excellent way to remember & review your blessings, unearth them & acknowledge them…more times than not, does this list wind up in some drawer somewhere, or if tacked to the fridge…it just becomes a part of the scenery & alphabet magnets. gratitude_list

With that said, my belief is that to explain the gratitude technique is much more practical than to tell someone to count their blessings or make a list & repeat it 3-5x daily, likened to a homework assignment. I would like to redefine the way we teach & learn gratitude. A new approach that mitigates the process, since the ego mind tends to be quite traumatized by certain historic or religious ordinances. We do not want the idea of practicing gratitude to feel like a chore, a scolding or an implication of bad behavior… where guilt then ensues, defeating the whole purpose of amplifying good vibes. Crossing the bridge over to Gratitude City should be fun & exhilarating! Let’s reinvent the way we travel there, shall we?

A damaged ego is the toughest customer whom we could attempt to sell a dream to. When dealing with a bruised ego, the art of coercion must be the mode of operation. In this way, we explain to the ego mind, how living in gratitude makes perfect sense. As a result, gratitude is then seen as harmless, an obvious benefit, & a gratifying experience. The idea of practicing gratitude becomes enticing to it & eventually it follows suit. It’s not what you say…it’s how you say it. This cannot be more true & applicable to all of life’s circumstances, from the transference of knowledge from professor to student, to the simplicity of teaching a kid to behave properly, or curbing your pet…even. Animals do indeed recognize the neg or pos vibration of your tone.

We all know that we are grateful at heart, while some of us focus on what we are thankful for more than others…most of us know better than to take things for granted in life. I really truly believe that most of us don’t even realize how self-sabotaging the mind can be. Thus, we often times will find our thoughts engaged  with disdain or complaints on how we just wish for things to improve or be better…as equally & frequently as with gratefulness. It is not our fault that we slip into this mind set. We were often times programmed this way since childhood, & in order for that attitude of gratitude or gratitude mindset to dominate our thoughts 100%, we’ll have to train it that way & practice accordingly. The good news is>>>>>>> the-gratitude-muscle

We all know that to be grateful is the key to a happy heart. The pop culture iconic Oprah Winfrey coined the word “grateful” for many of us in our day. We are thankful on Holidays. We are thankful for a meal. We are thankful when we dodge a bullet. We are thankful for mom & dad or a lover, neighbor or friend. We are thankful for the job that provides us with the means for monetary pleasures & survival or self-fulfillment & purpose. We are thankful for our energy, vitality, resilience…our gifts, talents, skills & abilities. We are thankful we can see a sunrise & breath fresh clean air. We are thankful to have an unlimited supply of clear clean running water & two legs to walk & run & exercise freely. We are thankful for our pets & plants for providing company, joy & oxygen. We are grateful for the health & hygiene of our teeth, our immune system, our digestive system, our nervous system, our heart health, bone heath, muscle memory. We are grateful to have a cell phone, high-speed internet, a fridge, a microwave & a mode of transportation. We have cable,  google at our disposal,  google maps to navigate us to the moon if we wanted! Whew! we have a whole lotta stuffy stuff to be grateful for, folks, I do declare 🙂12088405_10153745730563628_6844669273345758556_n

What if I told you, that what you focus on you expand. I’m sure you already know that. So let’s apply it shall we? This is much more than “counting blessings” or drawing up lists. This is a way of living…that will indeed effortlessly get you to exactly where you want to be in life promptly, with all the benefits & blessings you’ve ever dreamed of & more.

The ego mind loves that idea, I’m quite sure! So let’s begin…

We are now about to be mystified by the pure magic formula for wealth, health, success, freedom, & love. Dunt da da da! “Living in Gratitude!”

live-gratitudeWhat does living in gratitude mean?

It means…to be living every single moment in a state of honed in observation of goodness. We choose to observe the elephant in the room instead of the rats beneath his feet.images-6 Let the elephant in the room be: the obvious truth of the ever existence of good. If we are not talking about it…let’s start! Let this obvious truth be noted by our observations at all times.The obvious truths of the ever existence of good are: all things positive…how did I phrase it earlier? The upward increase of good. This is the obvious truth I speak of.  Anything representative or demonstrative or symbolic or reflective of bounty, beauty, success, satisfaction, brilliance, harmony, & the sweetness of life & nature. From the most minuscule example to the most grandiose display. If the only thing in that room (or your life) that you can find to be positive or fits the upward increase of good category, are the pretty flowers in the vase on the table in the corner….while everything else seems to be drab, dark, desolate, or dreary….focus on that! If the fact that your breathing is the only thing you can find to be grateful for….focus on that then. Seriously. lolgrateful2

In other words…through the eyes of an artist…if the only thing in the ghetto that we can put in that category….is the tiny bright yellow shiny butter cup sprouting out from the crack in the dingy sidewalk….then by all means, lets focus on that. You may then find that with this simple exercise, as you hold your focus on the buttercup, that a butterfly will appear, to add to the goodness & expansion of the “painting.” Catch my drift?

FunFact: (A=432 Hz, known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature.The Universal music of sacred geometry)

The constant 432 hertz live stream of consciousness that should be running through our minds at all times is: the formula for grateful observation. Observing only good. Making the wallpaper in the back drop of your mind’s room a live wallpaper of everchanging observations of upward increasing goodness. The elephant in every single room we walk into is what must be observed in order to be in a steady state of gratitude…hence “living in gratitude.” Ya know when something unfavorable happens, & someone says to you…”Look on the bright side…”? Well…”living in gratitude” is a just another way of saying… “My mode of operation is… looking at the bright side.

Notice & observe. Notice & observe. Notice & observe. EQUALS>>>>>

Focus & expand. Focus & expand. Focus & expand. EQUALS>>>>>

MANIFESTATION.

Being in a state of “living in gratitude,” makes our life’s main focus on: the upward increasing good. As a result, we essentially begin to expand all that is good in all the ways that good things grow, stretch, blossom, produce, bear fruit, grow gifts, express, extend, & accelerate further. We don’t have to know what is going to expand exactly, or how or in what way. The details follow suit to the focused intention on good. That’s the part where we can let go & let God, if you will.

Our job: We focus on all that we are grateful for.

Universe’s job: Deliver more.

Our job: Focus again. 

Universe’s job: Deliver even more.

gratitude-and-abundance

I’m gonna be honest….up until this very moment…I did not realize the importance of this old adage: “glass half empty; glass half full”

It’s code for: “Live in ignorance >or< Live in bliss.”

Very simple: either we train our brains to “live in gratitude”  by observing all things “half full” which leads rather swiftly to a focus on all things good resulting unequivocally with the expansion all things good.

OR…..allow the lazy untrained  brain to dominate, deceive, & sabotage us with shoddy glimpses of half glass empty observations. This will essentially end up making our lives miserable, dissatisfied, unfulfilled, & wired with all kinds of misfortunate circumstances.

Misfortunate circumstances are a direct result of living beneath the flow of gratitude, flopping around like a fish out of water in the underbelly of servitude. Serving negative vibratory frequency…by participating in the foolish practices of glass half empty observation. This servitude turns to slavery fast & we are then victims of our own self-sabotage, doubt & loathing.

We notice the less fortunate. We observe the less fortunate. We focus, we expand, the less fortunate. Period. Small way, big way, whatever amount of time we spend in an hour, a day, a week….playing for the glass half empty or glass half full team…will determine our fate, destiny, & essentially our life experience. That is how we take responsibility for the creations of our personal realities…here on Earth in our daily lives.

Allow me to make this distinction then: Being grateful is a temporary state that is fleeting. Living in gratitude, on the other hand, is a lifestyle that remains as long as you live it, & will undoubtedly furnish your life with unlimited miracles, magic & plenty.images-3

We Choose.

How much time do  you spend playing for the half empty team? How much time do you spend playing for the glass half full team?

“Check yourself before you wreck yourself”404604747-funnypicture-funnyquote-hahaha-reminds-me-of-due-date-you-better-check-yourself-before-you-wreck-you

Just how does one check oneself?

By asking yourself this: What team am I playing for? Observe your observations & you will know the answer. The answer then depicts your state & resulting condition. If your condition needs improvement in any way on any scale, then the best & only way to achieve that improvement is…to play more fully present for the glass half full team.

Check yourself defined: Catch yourself backsliding to the half empty team.

Prevent wreck yourself defined: Realign immediately with the glass half full team &….proceed happily & accordingly.

Gratitude…the ultimate alchemist! quotation-melody-beattie-gratitude-unlocks-the-fullness-of-life-it-turns-what-we-2-13-81
