Enhance Creative Expression with Garnet

Found in mineral deposits scattered across the globe, garnet ranges in color depending on the location in which it is mined. From colorless to rare blue, its most popular shade is a deep maroon. Closely resembling a seed of a pomegranate, garnet is referred to in Latin as “granatus” meaning seed or grain. Dating back to the Bronze Age, 3000 B.C., it is one of the oldest known stones in human history influencing Greek mythology, Egyptian, Biblical and Medieval history.

One of garnets most popular legends dates back to the story of Noah’s Ark. It was said that Noah used large pieces of garnet to illuminate the interior and path of the Ark. As a result, garnet has since been a popular stone carried amongst travelers to ensure safety and guidance throughout their journeys.

Garnet has a detailed history in use and lore. One of its most interesting uses was by the tribal Indians in Kashmir. They fashioned it into bullets and fired them at invading British armies. Today garnet is widely used in jewelry for its brilliance. For its durability, it is used as an alternative to sand in the abrasive industry. Its molecular composition and hardness allows it to be efficiently recycled while cutting down on the amount of dust and waste that is produced when smoothing and grinding other material items

On an energetic level, the glowing luminescence of garnet awakens one to their inherent creative forces. The process of becoming aware of one’s creative potential, sparks passion within the self. A symbol of the strengthening effects of light, truth and faith, garnet activates the vitality of life force energy at a root level. As creative expression ignites, the body is energized. This vital flow of energy motivates one to commit to the implementation of inspirational ideas through physical action.

When passion to create is aroused, garnet illumines the path to one’s purpose. Its inner glow is symbolic of our desire to create according to our deepest needs. One is drawn to garnet like a glowing warm fire. It nurtures and rejuvenates. Garnet’s loving devotion creates a magnetic force that causes a strong attraction to whatever one deliberately focuses their creative energy upon. As a result, instant healing and transformation occur.

A deep gratitude arises for the realization of one’s ability to deliberately create according to personal preference. Peace and calm enter the body, as one acquires the necessary patience that allows inspired action to manifest on all levels of BEING. As self-realization occurs, one grows and expands in their confidence to consciously direct creative expression into any area of their life. Miracles are created.

Wearing and consciously working with garnet activates powerful energies that will have one functioning at peak performance. One can always depend on garnet to light the way. Solutions and multiple pathways will always be revealed. Allow garnet to strengthen your relationship to yourself, your passion and purpose in life. One can always look to garnet for comfort and guidance as you create according to your deepest desires.

The Greatest Miracle

I created this Intentional Scrapbooking LO with the intent to strengthen the belief in the power of my mind. This month as we focus on creating miracles at Creating Intentions, it is time to turn our attention inward to strengthen and develop all that happens on the inside.

I recently came across this picture of my daughter taken a few days after her birth last December. As she just celebrated her first birthday, I was feeling grateful and appreciative that she was in my life. In cultivating these feelings, I realized that her presence on this earth is the greatest miracle! To be alive and to be able to experience physical sensations that life offers would not be possible without the presence of the subconscious mind.

Responsible for over 90 percent of our mental faculties, the subconscious processes over 400 billion bits of information in every second. It does this while directing and communicating all of our bodily functions such as breathing, the beating of the heart, circulating blood flow, cellular regeneration, and many other functions. Within our subconscious mind lies an infinite source of creative intelligence that also gives shape and form to this entire universe. Creative intelligence carries us from the time of conception until it is our time to leave the earth. It is accessible within the depths of our inner mind always lying in wait and ready to be harnessed and directed at any time.

Creating this LO, I focused thoughts of trust, faith and belief in my subconscious mind to clearly receive and implement all future direction that I impress upon it. It is sort of like priming the pump so that any and all future intentions will be launched with a turbo boost. When thoughts and emotions are backed by the energizing power of belief, a powerful magnetic force is created that will attract like thoughts, events, opportunities and people into one’s life.

As a direct result from creating this month’s Intentional Scrapbooking Kit™ “Miracles Happen” and this LO, incredible shift happened in my life. It is amazing how strong and firm my belief has amplified in my ability to create anything that I can imagine for myself. As a direct result, I feel a new found sense of peace and comfort that miracles are happening in my life NOW as a result of my focused positive thinking. Every day I receive signs from all over that confirm that I am attracting what I am voluntarily programming into my consciousness. I am so grateful to be equipped with this wonderful source of unlimited potential!

Easily Create Miracles in Your Life

Many people today are aware of the incredible power of the mind. It is comforting to know that we possess an inherent ability to create whatever we set our mind to. Every one of us has the capacity to tap into this inner resource at will, yet many still do not fully understand how to successfully harness it or where to begin when intending change. The question is how do we effectively co-create with this facet of our consciousness to achieve the results we desire?

The answer lies in the awareness of one’s thoughts and feelings. Consistently thinking the same thought over and over sends a strong message to the subconscious mind. Repetitious thinking eventually brings one to arrive at the conclusion that they are to receive whatever they have convinced themselves of. Belief is created and that belief is handed over to the subconscious mind. Each time a new belief is formed, it becomes the basis from which our subconscious mind executes all future action.

Belief is a powerful state of mind induced through repeated suggestion. Our beliefs energize our thoughts. When belief backs one’s thoughts, a strong magnetic force is created within the mind. This magnetic field attracts more thoughts that are similar in nature and equivalent physical experiences.

Many of our existing beliefs are formed unconsciously from the time of our birth. Our consciousness operates unbeknownst to us from these core beliefs. The great news is that we can rewrite our beliefs at any given point in time through intention setting and repeated suggestion.

Creating new beliefs through repetition of affirmative orders can make the Law of Attraction work for anyone. When intending to create change or transformation in any area of life, it is important to find the best feeling and most positively stated words to describe the desired outcome that one is seeking. Deliberately repeating desired thought patterns throughout the day allows one’s new way of thinking to dominate the mind. Time for some more good news... as your new thought patterns begin to dominate your mentality, it becomes habit. This means that your desired way of thinking automatically surfaces into your waking mentality, making it EASY for you to focus on what you truly want in life!

Implementing new beliefs through repeated suggestion does require a certain degree of disciplined effort, but it can be FUN and EASY and the reward is well worth it. Imagine experiencing sustainable thoughts and feelings of sheer happiness and well-being! It is an amazing experience to be filled with positive energy as a reward for time well spent.

Belief is the starting point from which all miracles are created. Without belief, one cannot create or attract the things they desire. Belief needs to be present when intending to create desired results, for it is the fuel that backs every thought. Since one creates successful outcomes according to their level of belief, focusing on raising belief in the power of mind will boost ones ability to create and attract desired results with greater accuracy. The following are some effective ways to strengthen belief:

  • Deliberately suggest to your subconscious mind through repeated affirmative orders, your belief in its ability to attract to you the physical equivalent of the directed thought you impress upon it. Time must be spent each day directly communicating to your inner mind of your belief in its abilities. Engage the imagination for effective communication of your heartfelt thoughts in the form of words, images and aroused emotion.
  • An English Proverb states “the eyes are the window to the soul”. Find a mirror, look directly into your eyes and speak out loud to the depths of your soul, where your deep inner mind resides. Speak of your admiration, love, respect, and appreciation of its worth. This is a very powerful technique. It will stir great emotion from the depths of your BEING.
  • Intentionally arouse positive supporting emotions when repeating affirmations. All thought is birthed into existed by an emotional state. Strive to hold positive emotions of well-being as much as possible. Emotions are our internal guidance system. We sense through emotional well-being how aligned we are to our higher selves or source energy.
  • Focus your desired intent of strengthening belief through the Intentional Scrapbooking Method™ to anchor your thoughts into physical shape and form. Taking the time to focus your intent in this way expresses commitment to your desired goal. This process aligns all four levels of BEING which strongly imprints the subconscious mind and activates the Law of Attraction. Your desires will only manifest as a result!

Strengthening belief in the power of mind will have you creating and attracting all the things you truly desire in life with ease and effortlessness. The journey of self-discovery is a process of becoming. It is on-going. Once a desired goal is fulfilled, one will always uncover more desires that serve to grow and expand the self to new heights. Believe in yourself, the creative potential of your thoughts and the power of your subconscious mind. Belief is the starting point from which all miracles happen. Believe in believing.

The Inherent Beauty of Carnelian

Bursting with warm earthly colors, carnelian is a gentle stone that inspires one to identify their unique personal strengths and courage to live life to the fullest. A variant of chalcedony, carnelian is mainly composed of silicon dioxide which is commonly known as quartz. Its color range varies from a pale milky orange to deep rust brown. A reminder of the rising sun, fiery sunsets, autumn leaves and the fertile soil of the earth, carnelian is a symbol of the strength and beauty of our planet.

Carnelian has held a strong presence in the history of the world. It has been found in some of the oldest known jewelry, inlaid into the robes of Pu-Abi, a Sumerian Queen from the third millennium, B.C, among Egyptian tombs, in the breastplate of High Priest Aaron and in many other ancient cultures. One of its most popular uses was by the Romans. They used the stone for cameos, intaglios and as seal rings for imprinting seals with wax on correspondence and documents.

Cool to the touch, carnelian is warming to the soul. Its presence and energetic vibration is calming yet invigorating. Reflective of the stability and nurturing qualities of the earth, it mainly assists one in strengthening their mental focus. Carnelian helps to keep one grounded in the awareness of their thoughts while simultaneously activating a fiery creative energy. The ignition of internal resources creates the inspiration, creativity and courage to discover new ways of viewing life experiences.

Carnelian is a powerful tool to assist one in recognizing resources already present in life. Shifting awareness to discover abundance that is already a part of one’s reality opens the mind to the unlimited possibility of thought. When one fully realizes the transformation that results from refocusing thought, it motivates one to aspire to their highest potential. Viewing life from a new perspective creates the realization that anything is possible. This potentiality inspires the courage and motivation to fully embrace inherent talents that make one unique in this world. Carnelian is effective in assisting one to recognize the inherent beauty of every situation, to view challenges as opportunities and as a catalyst for positive change.

As we learn to deliberately direct focused thought by choosing to see the positive aspects in every experience, we allow feelings of freedom to flow through our BEING. Keeping our awareness on the abundant resources of this planet and our freewill ability to shape our futures through intended thought cultivates feelings of deep love, respect, and appreciation for living. This synergy of thought and emotion are the necessary attractive forces that open the doors to living abundantly.

Carnelian assists us in implementing this message into the totality of our BEING. Each and every one of us has everything we need in order to survive. All we need to do is just open our eyes, broaden our minds and perspectives to see the inherent beauty in all things. We already possess an abundance of resources. The most abundance source is found within, in the form of thoughts, ideas and inspiration.

The earth is overflowing with resources as well. Look to the earth, it nurtures and takes care of us. Set intentions to stay grounded and remain calm, allow well BEING to flow. As carnelian assists us in grounding desired goals into physical manifestation, we can intentionally work with it to create a beautiful life in which we attract life experiences that are according to our deepest passions. From discovering and creating work that you love, to attracting healthy lifestyles and relationships, carnelian brings awareness. Allow it to awaken, nurture, and help you manifest the life you truly desire.

Activate an Abundant Mind Set First Thing in the Morning

I would like to share a simple morning ritual that instantly activates an abundant mind set that serves to attract many wonderful experiences throughout the day. This is just an example which can be replaced by your personal tastes and preferences. It can be tailored to any type of morning ritual as abundance is found in everything!

I love to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning! The anticipation of the smell and taste of it draws me out of bed. Upon waking, I first express my appreciation for life, how happy I am to live the life I am leading and how grateful I am for all that I am surrounded by. I then roll out of bed and move into the kitchen. I open a jar that is filled with coffee beans and deliberately recognize and affirm the abundance contained within that jar. As I grind the coffee beans, I realize that the abundance transforms and multiplies into more abundance. Offering my thanks, I then proceed to fill the coffee pot with water. I marvel as it fills up drop by drop and wonder just how many drops it takes to fill that pot! An abundant amount, that's for sure! I then move into the cabinets, in which there are abundance, to select from an abundant supply of mugs. As the pot brews, I think of all the other things in my life that are in abundance.

This is a wonderful meditation. It always starts my day off on just the right vibe. It feels good to start the morning feeling positive and abundant. Since I began activating abundant thinking into my morning routine, I am continuously amazed at all the wonderful experiences that unfold throughout my day. My days and my life keep getting better and better. I am so thankful for the abundance of resources that surround me in every moment!

Please leave a comment or send me a personal message as to how you can activate abundance into your morning ritual, I would love to hear your thoughts!

Find Abundance in Today's Economy

Feeling abundant in today’s economy may be challenging when a majority of the population, including the media, is filled with negative outlooks regarding the uncertain financial future of the United States. This negative attention and focus can trigger overwhelming feelings that can cause us to feel out of control. It is important to remind ourselves that periods of intense change always create the space for new beginnings and pathways to be formed. This is yet another opportunity for personal growth and self transformation. One unchanging and constant fact is the only thing a person can control is the way he or she personally responds and reacts to events and situations that occur outside of the self. Consciously focusing our thoughts on the positive aspects of every experience, long-term goals and the inner abundance of source will keep one feeling the inherent freedom that is our natural birthright.

To attract abundance, we must first find a way to think and feel abundant in the present moment. Although it does take a certain degree of disciplined effort, mastering this mind set can be EASY and FUN to do. All that is required is a shift of focus. Maintaining focus on the positive aspects in every experience and seeking the inherent beauty in all things will allow us to feel and recognize the abundance of resources already present in our lives. Sounds easy? It is. The following are a few simple tips to assist in shifting your focus to recognize the boundless abundance that you already possess.

  • First things first, reduce your amount of exposure to the media. Limiting the amount of time one listens and watches the news will help to keep focus on what really matters; your positive state of mind and over all feelings of well-being. Although it is important to stay tuned into current events, the more one listens to the programming, the easier it is to focus on it. The news mainly keeps a person tuned in and focused on the negative aspects. Reduce your exposure.

  • Clearly state your intentions. This is a time of change and reform that is creating an abundance of new opportunities. Make use of this time to seek out experiences in life that positively impact you and make you feel good. Deliberate setting of intentions instantly launches thought in a desired direction. Set intentions to prosper, to thrive, and to attract and discover work that inspires passion. Intention setting empowers a person to feel in control of the way they respond to circumstances and incites productive actions. Declaring positive statements lifts one to the belief that achieving fulfillment of their deepest dreams is achievable. This is the necessary fuel that transforms dreams into a reality. Move forward by setting positive intentions.

  • Actively seek out abundance in simple things. Look for and recognize abundance in and around your environment. Abundance is defined as anything in which there is more than enough of. Discovering abundance in the simple things cultivates a master mindset that will ultimately serve to attract more desired experiences of having more than enough. Think abundantly, confirm the abundance already present in your reality, and generate feelings of abundance from within. Remaining disciplined in these actions will allow one to capture the essence of abundance. Experiencing the essence of abundance is the ultimate key to allowing it to flow more freely into one’s life. This is the Law of Attraction in action.

  • Be thankful for all things and experiences that are already present in your reality. An attitude of gratitude expands your focus to embrace all the positive aspects already taking place in your life.

This planet is filled with an abundant amount of resources. The most abundant resource available to each and every one of us is the creative source of our minds from which all thought, idea and inspiration are created. The way we think, feel and choose to perceive the world can open the doors to abundance and attract everything we need in order to survive. The time is NOW! Seek the inherent beauty and positive aspect in every experience. As one maintains this discipline, abundance is already present!

To assist you in cultivating a master mind set of ABUNDANCE, we have created an Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM that is intended to open your eyes to the abundance already present in your life. This project which includes VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS will have you instantly thinking and feeling more abundant in the present moment. CLick HERE to view this kit!

A Resurgence of Hope in America

What a wonderful opportunity to be a part of the resurgence of hope that is sweeping across the planet as a result of Obama’s election! With emotions running high, it does not matter if one was for or against Obama in this presidential election, what matters most is WHAT each and every one of us chooses to place our focus on.

An event that will be recorded in history as a time that shaped our nation and ignited hope across the world, the results of the election is spreading awareness that all dreams are possible. As Obama takes the 2008 election by storm, he brings hope to individuals in every corner of the world.

It is amazing how hope can inspire people to lead better lives, to focus on all the positive aspects that each experience has to offer. Hope is a time of new beginnings, a time to create according to ones highest potential, a time to become more than we ever knew was possible. Hope is the fuel that revives a deep felt joy for living.

As individuals, we can tap into this time of new beginnings to commit to making positive changes through our choices and decisions. The energy that hope brings can lift us above and beyond previous self-limiting thoughts and self-defeating behaviors. Hope creates the belief that says “Yes, I can achieve this!”

Jump into the opportunity that this time brings and set your intentions….declare that you are going to live the life that you have been imagining for yourself right NOW. It is time for you to feel free, to succeed at your goals and obtain what you truly desire in life.

This is a time of unlimited potential and endless possibilities. Let’s intend to keep our focus on all the potential and good the results of this election will bring. Together we can positively unite in hope as a whole, and at the same time apply the hope that we are now feeling to personally renew our zest and joy for living. Discover your strengths and unique talents and incorporate them into your life. When we live and work according to what we love and are good at, we thrive and life becomes easy and free. The most important contribution anyone can give to this world is to work according to their passion.

The most important thing to remember is that one must find a way to keep hope alive in their self first, if others are to follow. Do what you love, seek the positive aspects in every experience, see the beautiful abundance of resources that surround us on this planet, and rise to your highest potential. Be a beacon of hope and light. Light the way so that all may see.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is my favorite holiday! I love to get dressed up with my kids and then take them trick-or-treating. It is absolutely halarious to watch them running from house to house to get treats.

Discover the Healing Properties of Lapis Lazuli

What an exciting week! We visited the pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins and now I am excited to trick-or-treat for Halloween. I am looking forward to being interviewed by Rebekkah this morning from You can visit her website which is filled with a ton of resources on how to heal the self. She will also have our interview available in MP3 format later today.

It is the end of the month and we are about to release next month's Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM which I know will be a hit! I am not going to reveal the master mind set just sure to check back saturday! I am sure that we can all use the mental boost that this month's project has an ample supply of!

I almost forgot to post the inspirational and informational article on the crystal that is featured in October's Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM, "Creative Vision". Lapis Lazuli is a very powerful stone! I have been actively working with it all month and it has kept me busy. It has revealed insight as to former ways of thinking that need to be released and how to refocus the nature of my thoughts. I would love to hear any stories on how lapis activated and enhanced your creative vision. Please send all stories to me at

A stone so ancient, it is said to have existed before time itself, lapis lazuli is a powerful stone for awakening awareness within the self. Abundantly found throughout the ruins of many ancient civilizations, it was highly prized by the Egyptians and Mesopotamians. Used as a tool for raising consciousness, lapis was highly revered for its ability to bring wisdom, truth and light to the user.

The oldest known source that produces this semi-precious material are the mines of Badakshan province in Afghanistan. Relics and talismans found among ancient civilizations are traced back to this known source for the past 6,500 years. Although it can be found in other locations across the world, these mines produce the highest quality specimens.

Lapis lazuli is comprised of a deep cobalt blue with scattered flecks of highly reflective golden pyrite. Its intense color is such a contrast to the dry and arid land of the desert in which it is mined that one can understand its prized popularity since the dawn of time. A known spiritual tool, lapis had many other purposes. Due to its saturated color it was frequently pulverized into powders to be used as paint, dyes, healing poultices, and eye shadow, as worn by the infamous Cleopatra.

Lapis Lazuli is one of two crystals in the mineral kingdom that is known to penetrate and surface rather than heal. It is most effective when placed on the middle of the forehead just between the eyebrows. This location is frequently referred to as the third eye. When placed here, it will assist the user in penetrating limited beliefs and illusions of the self that block access to the wisdom of the subconscious. Lapis quickly draws a person into the depths of the infinite intelligence of the inner mind.

It is here in the subconscious realm that the energetic vibration of lapis will align one with the power of creative source. This alignment ignites awareness and self empowerment. In return, this awakening serves to stimulate insight that surfaces in the form of ideas, inspiration and intuitive hunches.

Working together, lapis lazuli and one’s own creative vision inspire the user to powerfully and forcefully focus on desired visions with precise clarity. As dreams grow and expand in the eye of the beholder, insight is revealed as to the necessary steps that need to be performed in order to fulfill a desired goal.

Lapis not only aids in surfacing clear insight, it shows a person certain actions that one may need to take in order to ascend to higher levels of BEING. This means that it will reveal any information about what is blocking, preventing or standing in the way of achieving a desired goal. Lapis brings to light any and all thought patterns and emotional wounds that need to be released and healed. In other words, when someone is finished working with lapis, they will have a clear understanding as to what they really need to accomplish in order to turn their dreams into a reality.

Allow the deep blue ray of lapis to carry you to the depths of your subconscious mind where you can access the brightly shining truth and wisdom of your BEING. Lapis is a vehicle through which we can truly experience the light of the higher celestial realms and implement the wisdom received by grounding it into physical action.

Transmutation of Thoughts into Physical Matter

What a joy life is! How great it is to be free! BEING aligned with my purpose and aware of my highest potential carries a zest for life that is so grand words cannot begin to define it. To be aware that each thought I entertain attracts its equivalent physical counterpart inspires me to heights that I have never before known possible. I deliberately use every thought to create the most beautiful and inspiring life that I can intend for myself.

I am so thankful that I have discovered scrapbooking as an outlet to express my creative nature. Scrapbooking allows me to capture the intangible nature of thought and shape it into concrete form. As I scrapbook all my intentions, I find that I ascend to higher levels of BEING with an accelerated speed. Every morning I look forward to all that I can begin to create. I feel so creative and full of potential that I know from the depths of my soul that I can inspire the world!

Not only do I give color and shape to my thoughts through scrapbooking, I connect with the intelligence of nature through activating crystal energy. I am living the life I am meant to live.
Every day, I feel the overflow of divine inspiration. My thoughts crystalize into form as I courageously walk my path.
It is my burning desire, my intention, that the world know how effective scrapbooking can be as a tool for creating a life filled with any and all types of experiences that a person can imagine for themselves.
I intentionally used hematite on this LO to assist me in effectively grounding my inspired thoughts into physical action. Hematite encourages us to follow through with our ideas and commitments. I am committed to spreading awareness of the creative potential of thought. Each day is a new beginning full of possibilities.
Make a commitment to yourself to start each day affirming the positive. Look for the beauty in every experience. You will find that you will attract equivalent experiences all day long in return.

The Master Mind Set of Creative Vision

Read more about the master mindset of this month's Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM, Creative Vision. Be sure to receive informational and inspirational articles on the monthly mindset and crystal of the month, please sign up to receive my newsletters at

Creative Vision

By summoning creative vision, we can create the life we desire. So, what is creative vision and how do we harness it? Creative vision is information released from the wise and all-knowing source of the subconscious mind meant to inspire us to perform certain acts that are necessary to transform desired goals into realized physical experiences. When we harness our creative vision, we access clear insight from the deepest resource of our subconscious. In the depth of our deep inner mind, our creative vision awaits. To awaken and call forth this creative intelligence is to summon it using our powerful intent.

Intent is powerful. When we call forth creative vision with our intent, we are focused, determined, clear and purposeful. Our intent alone will surface the wisdom of creative vision. The question is how can one recognize it when it surfaces? The valuable insight is communicated to us through the imagination. It is through this vehicle that we successfully communicate to our subconscious and it communicates to us. Once we clearly understand this communication channel between our imagination and our subconscious mind, we can effectively, successfully, and deliberately use it to transform our dreams and goals into reality.

All we need to do is 1) Clearly state a desired intention, 2) arouse supportive emotions and, 3) deliberately focus our thought on the fulfilled outcome that we truly want to experience. These are the most powerful tools that we naturally possess. When we spend a prolonged amount of time each day holding a desired vision, we stimulate, deeply imprint, and give direction to the subconscious mind. In this way, we allow the subconscious mind to receive clear direction for what we truly desire.

In return, the subconscious mind, which knows everything needed to bring about a state of wholeness and well-being, immediately begins to attract all events and situations meant to fulfill the direction we’ve given to it. It literally guides you to be in the right place at the right time to receive all the necessary experiences that will transform your dreams into concrete physical realities.

New ideas and inspired hunches surfacing through your imagination are creative vision! If a new idea surfaces while you’re imagining a desired goal, pay attention! This valuable insight has been deliberately called forth from the depths of your all-knowing deep inner mind!

To recognize creative vision as it surfaces is to practice conscious awareness of every thought in each moment. Notice each thought as it occurs. Practicing this discipline will ensure that you will be able to identify new ideas and hits of inspiration as they arrive from the profound deep inner mind. It is through the creative vision that surfaces from your deep inner mind that all new ideas and inspiration are handed over to man.

Some of our imaginative abilities have become weak due to lack of use. The good news is that this powerful ability can be brought back to life through stimulation and exercise. Deliberate focused thought on images and sensations of a desired experience will serve to nurture your imagination. As you bring your imagination back to life, this fertile platform will help you grow and expand all your dreams.

As we strive to align with our highest potential, we can summon the master mindset of creative vision. Deliberate stating of this intent will allow creative wisdom to surface and expand our visions with a precise clarity. New ideas and inspiration will be released from the wise depths of the subconscious mind. Recognize the insight as it arises and take positive action on it. Small steps of inspired action are the necessary fuel to transform any desired dream into a reality.

I was so pleased to see my archer bro's tattoo this summer when he came to visit. At such as young age, he already realizes the force behind his thoughts!!! He has a strong intention to win a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics for archery. This tattoo is a powerful reminder of his inherent creative nature. I took pictures of him shooting so that I can use them to create a mini-book that will keep on encouraging him to imagine his dream!! Check out this awesome photo!

My Little Share Fairy

I love this photo of Samona saying, "HERE MOM!" She always shares whatever she has in her hand with me and her sisters. I love her giving and generous nature. I created this layout to complete a fun assignment for one of my favorite scrapbooking kit clubs, Bad Girls Kits....Now that I know how deeply scrapbooking can imprint the subconscious mind, I create all my projects while projecting strong intentions. My intention for this LO is for Samona to always remember to share her essence with others.

Highest Potential

I am amazed at how fast time truly does seem to pass! Tara starts kindergarten this Thursday!
As for me, it's time to get back to work! My intention to kick off the month of September is to live according to my Highest POTENTIAL!

I created this LO to inspire me to use everything I have to make a difference in this world. The tag contains a partial quote, that I love, by Jack London. His words describe sufficiently how I feel at this point in my life.

I will leave you with his words for pondering....

"I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."

Skull Consciousness

The following is an article that I recently wrote on skull consciousness!

Images of skulls seem to be everywhere we look these days. Printed on sneakers, kids clothes, teen jackets, and adult jeans, skulls are everywhere. Even the latest summer movie flick, Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Skull, is based on legend of the abilities of ancient crystal skulls. What is the current fascination with the symbol of skull?

While popular culture consciously associates skulls with Halloween and death, to the ancient civilizations of Mexico, Central and South America the image of skull symbolized a desire to move into a higher frequency of consciousness. In the shape of our head, the skull is the part of our physical body that holds the brain, the organ through which we express ourselves consciously in this reality. The brain is also the place where memory is located; and where information stored. Many ancient civilizations utilized and honored the image of a skull as a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. This article covers that inner knowing or sensation that resonates as truth deep within our being, and does not claim to be a literary or academic argument.

The reason behind the latest fashion trend of the skull symbol is that the skull is a sign that our modern day civilization as a whole is moving towards a higher state of consciousness. The spiritual wave sweeping across the planet has caused many people to question the purpose of life and their purpose in it. Little by little, more and more we are awakening to our greater purpose for being. The true meaning of the skull is encoded into the cells, into our DNA, and is embedded our collective unconscious. Our desire to know more, to awaken our consciousness, shows up as an attraction to the skull.

Specifically, crystal skulls can be a tool for awakening and expanding consciousness. Crystals formed into skulls take on a stronger energy field than if the crystal was left in its natural state. The reason is that as the crystal is being carved, the inherent ability of crystal consciousness merges with the unconscious collective meaning of skull, and the collective unconscious of mankind. Storehouses of information, crystal skulls link us to all the wisdom of the ages since the beginning of time, and put us in touch with infinite wisdom hidden within the depths of our beings. The more aware we become of our own consciousness, the more we start to align with our unlimited potential. And as we begin to live in alignment with our greater purpose in life, amazing wisdom of the reason behind creation will be revealed to us. We will find that we will become more aware of who we really are, where we are going and what we need to grow into our unlimited potential as a human being.

We can learn how to intentionally activate and program a crystal skull to awaken our consciousness. To learn more about activating and programming crystal skulls visit We have crystal skulls like the one you see above available for purchase. While we are patiently waiting for the publicatrion of my site, you can email me if you want to purchase one before hand at

Forever In Her Heart

On the last day of school, Tara's playschool teacher, Kristi, gave all the kids a red glass heart and told them that it was to remind them that they were forever in her heart. Her gentle way of teaching and being with her playschool kids has left its imprints on their little hearts and souls as well.

As I finished this LO, Tara immediately asked me if I could take a picture of it. When we went outside to take the picture, I realized that she wanted me to take a picture of her next to it. You can see happiness and love radiating from her as she admires the LO. Just another reason why I am so thankful for the art of scrapbooking. Even though Kristi's love is forever imprinted onto her soul, the memory of Kristi and Tara is forever preserved into a scrapbooking LO.

I Am Loved

When I first looked at this picture after it was taken, I saw from a different perspective how much my daughters love me. Although I already feel and know their love me, it was nice to have a picture that captured the essence of it.

Sometimes when creating intentions, it is important to recognize and acknowledge situations that are being experienced in the present moment. My intention for this scrapbook LO is to anchor the feeling of being well loved on a deeper and stronger level. By acknowledging the present experience and using my intention to sustain the feeling of being loved, I am creating the potential for many future outcomes of similar experiences. Feeling loved is something money cannot buy. It is my desire to always attract and create moments like this throughout my life. I am so happy that I can use scrapbooking as a tool to cultivate feelings and certain states of mind.

Awaken to Your Consciousness!

I saw this piece of paper by Sassafrass Lass and all I could think of was AWAKEN! Since this is my ultimate desire, to awaken to the unlimited possiblities of my consciousness in each and every moment, I had to create this layout on a piece of canvas. Where do you think I placed it?........By my bed of course!

My intention for this creation is that each and every morning this piece of art will serve to remind me of my ultimate desire. What better way then to anchor this affirmation into a beautiful piece of art that will serve as a focal point and reminder of that which you desire in life. Upon waking in the morning, I will reinforce to my subconscious mind that what I wish to achieve. Not only am I imprinting this affirmation into the creative energy that flows through all living things, but I am starting my day off in a positive way!

When you start your day off with positive thoughts and intentions, you can be sure that you will attract experiences of a like nature. This LO makes me so happy! It was fast and easy to make. this project will be featured in my new book, and will be expanded on in more detail. I would love to hear about any intentions that you are currently creating for yourself. You can contact me via email, You can sign up to receive more information about what I am doing by signing up on my website. It should be up and fully running by the end of the week!

Expect it with Confidence!

Expectancy is the final step that needs to be implemented when consciously creating intentions.

Confident expectation produces outcome! Everything we have or experience in life, situations, relationships, material items, are a part of our life’s experience by way of our expectation. Positive results in receiving the fulfillment of your intended thoughts depend on the belief that positive expectancy will result in the realization of fulfilled dreams.

If you expect it, your expectations will show up as a realized fact. Allow all your hard work to flow to you easily and effortlessly. Be open to receiving it. Feel the gratitude in your heart in this moment, for that which you have created in your imagination already exists on a mental level. The physical experiences are being drawn to you to in this moment. You will soon realize your fulfilled desire as a physical experience. Trust and have faith that your positive thoughts and the wisdom of your subconscious are guiding you towards unlimited possibilities and potentials.

Worry, doubt, or fear, only undo and weaken the focus of your intended thought. Do not entertain contrasting thoughts of that which you have intended for yourself.
I hope you enjoyed viewing the three sections of the dream book. I used a variety of scrapbooking supplies to put it together. Each section has hidden pockets in which I can tuck my written intentions. This book acts as a physical anchor for all the positive intentions that I create for myself on a mental level. This book will be featured as a project in my new book. You will be able to learn more about the details of this creation in the Project Idea Gallery section. Stay tuned to find out when and where my book will become available!

Fire Up Your Imagination!

Imagination is more important than knowledge. - Albert Einstein

The second step in moving towards living and experiencing the dreams that you intend to hold is to engage your imagination. All ideas, inventions, services, and material goods were all created by a mere thought in someones mind. Everyone has the inner ability to bring their thoughts into full realization to be experienced on a physical level. The first step, which was revealed yesterday, is to identify that which you desire to achieve in life. It may be an idea, a goal, or specific physical experience. You can begin to move towards it by clearly and consciously stating your intention.

The next step is to visualize,using mental images, the fulfilled end result of that which you intended to accomplish. Use your imagination to engage all of your senses and feel yourself living out the fulfilled goal. As you consciously hold these mental images, your subconscious mind will follow the directions that your conscious mind is focused on, and will do everything in its power to attract to you the experiences of your intended desire. All you have to do is maintain the positive focus on the end result. Trust, know, believe and have faith in your ability to effectively focus on creating the fulfilled outcome by maintaining positive thoughts. The creative energy that flows through your subconscious will subtly guide you by attracting to you all the events, conditions and experiences that will make your desire a realized fact.

The overall synergy of this process will be explained in detail in my new book. Currently you can sign up to receive information on my website, about when and where it will be available. Keep in mind that my website will be up and running shortly. Thanks for your patience and thanks for checking back to learn more about my thoughts!

What Do You Desire?

The first step in creating the life of your dreams is to clearly state what it is that you desire in life. You may have a plan, goal, or idea that you want to achieve and move towards. You may have certain attitudes or recurring emotional states that you would like to seek change in or heal. Whatever is happening at this moment in your life experience, you definitely have a dream that you hold for yourself or someone you love. The first step in moving towards fulfilling that goal is to hold the conscious awareness in your mind of that which you seek.

State it clearly and out loud.

I wish.....
I want.....
I desire....

Know that you are meant to receive all that you desire in life. Think about your dream in detail. Let it unfold in your mind. Focus on the positive outcome of your dream being fulfilled.

Check back tomorrow to learn about the second step in turning your thoughts into a realized outcome.

Book of Dreams

I created this "Book of Dreams" to inspire me to create intentions for all the goals and dreams that I hold in life. Inside are three different sections that serve as reminders of the different steps or mental processes that assist in generating and sustaining positive thought processes. Our experiences in the outside world are but reflections of our inner states of mind.

Over the next three days I will post pictures of the different sections that I created in this book. I will also provide a little bit of personal insight of the positive mental attitudes needed to experience the realization of your goals and dreams. The concepts that are portrayed on the pages within this book will be explained in depth in my new book, Creating Intentions. Currently, my website is still a work in progress. It is my intention to have it up and running by the end of May. For now, you can sign up to receive more information about the concepts and techniques of Creating Intentions, and you will be notified when and where you can find my book once it is available to the public.

Queen of Scream

This little girl loves to scream when she is having a great time. I always want to remember the sound of it. I can actually hear her screaming with joy as I look at this picture. I am so thankful that I was able to captured it.

This is a LO I submitted for this weeks Monday Challenge at Scrap for a Cure. The challenge was to make your own embellishments that did not come straight from a package. I made the acrylic accents with stamps, wax and Diamond Glaze, then I stained them with alcohol inks. Fun!

Time for Everything

Currently, I have so many interests and ideas that I want to work on or need to complete during the course of the day, that time seems to elude me. In my thoughts about lack of time and the pressing urge to get things done, I have been feeling a little frustrated. I have become aware of the fact that I tend to look at the clock often to see what time it is and then I calculate how much time I have left in the day to accomplish all my goals. This has ultimately led to a unfolding negative thought process that is creating the experience of not getting all the things done in the day that need to be completed.

There is so much information in thoughts of lack. By becoming consciously aware of my frustration with time, I can choose in the moment of NOW to change the way I view time or I can continue to feed the contrasting view of lack and feeling frustrated. As I became aware of my thoughts of lack and feelings of frustration, I knew there was a hidden desire that needed to be born.

My new found desire has now given way to a positive way of thinking about time. What better way than to scrapbook a clock with a positive affirmation on it, so that every time I look at it, it will serve as an anchor and reminder as to all that I am trying to create in my life. It will also relax me and reassure me that time is not really a factor in just BEING and experiencing the joys of living.

My affirmation to help me remember what it is that I am intending to create and positively focus on is that, “There is time for EVERYTHING.” Each and every time that I look at my new clock, I will shift my former way of thinking to focus on my new positive thought forms. Each and every time I look at this clock, I will say the affirmation, which reinforces and gives direction to my subconscious mind. Then I will hold mental images of myself happily and successfully accomplishing all that I need to throughout my day.

To take my new found desire further, I am intending to create a mini book that also states that, “there is time for everything”, in which I will refine with clarity, all that it is that I want to make time for. It would be such a joy to see if you have any ideas or input as to how to positively view time and how you accomplish all that you desire during the day. I implore you to send me an email or pictures of a project that you are working on regarding this topic.

This clock project and following mini book will be expanded on in more detail in my new book, Creating Intentions, in which you can be notified upon its release by signing up on my website,

Sitting with Nature

I was inspired by Shakespeare’s quote, “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin,” to create this layout of my daughter sitting with nature.

I was amazed at her immediate connection to nature. All she wanted to do was sit on this rock, and in her words, “listen to the peace and quiet”. She was so still and quiet. She did not want to leave. She was “being” present with the moment. It was wonderful to watch her and see how intuitively she picked up on nature’s presence.

I created this layout with the intention for her to always remain aware of her connection to nature’s presence and to always take the time to seek out moments such as this.

On the walk back to the car we picked up some foliage from the forest floor. I included some of the “findings” as embellishments on the layout. I wanted to anchor the connection that she experienced on a mental level with some tangible physical items from that particular spot and moment.
