7 Steps to Create Your "Happily Ever After"

Today there is an epidemic of unhappiness. Studies show that at least 1 in 5 women are on anti-depressants. Reflecting back to memories of childhood, almost every little girl held the dream of living “happily ever after”. Usually the “happily ever after” contained visions of marrying a prince and then moving off to a far away land to live in a magical castle filled with lots of children and an ample supply of help from the likes of maids, servants, cooks, etc. A BIG dream often told to us by parents, grandparents, or other close family members and friends. A tale that was entertaining to say the least although many of the loved ones who enjoyed telling this type of story were unaware of its conditioning effects on a young child’s consciousness.

As a child many of us held grand visions of living “happily ever after”. Somewhere along the road as a teenager our joy for dreaming big and thinking happy thoughts was forgotten or lost amidst all the pressures and expectations one felt when conforming to societal structures. Reaching adulthood, personal levels of happiness were greatly diminished in comparison to the natural elation one felt as a child. Why is it that as we move through the journey of life, we develop a tendency to ponder negative aspects more often than the positive aspects of events, circumstances and people in our lives ultimately resulting in feelings of emptiness and unhappiness?

We are born naturally wanting to live a life filled with meaning and value, to live with joy and lasting happiness. Unless one is born into an environment that nurtures a connection to their true divine self, they become conditioned over the course of childhood with thoughts and beliefs surrounding ideas of how others expect them to be. A false sense of self develops that is egocentric in nature. An individual mark of identification begins to evolve that ultimately shapes one’s perception of the world and their role in it. Many of us are conditioned from an early age to believe that who we are, what we have, and what we do define our value and worth in the world. This point of view keeps one focused on remaining separate from others. Therefore, a person feels that they have to continuously strive to prove to themselves and others of their extreme value and self worth.

Searching for happiness or happy endings in the accumulation of material things or circumstances that occur outside of the self may provide a temporary state of joy but it is not lasting. To live a life that is “happily ever after” is to experience a solid foundation of joy in every moment. Fulfillment of this level is only achieved when one turns inward to fully participate in the abundance of good feeling thoughts that align them with the larger source of who they really are. It is the journey of connecting to the true divine self that brings about the essence of pure joy and bliss that one is seeking.

As human beings we create our existence in the world through our perceptions, thoughts and feelings. What we create on the inside is reflected on the outside. Finding happiness through physical action does not work not because joy begins with one’s state of mind. It is up to each one of us as individuals to utilize our profound freedom found in the ability to choose the nature of every thought in all moments.

Feeling happy in the all powerful moment of NOW is the key to success. Choosing positive thoughts that make one feel happy is to open the door to profound levels of joy. When a person is angry, sad, frustrated, or struggling, joy cannot exist. Focusing on problems and unwanted things prevent happiness from flowing into one’s life experience. A person cannot feel joy when negative emotions are present. This is a proven universal law of physics! The life one lives is the exact replication of what they are thinking. To allow joy and to create a sustainable flow of happiness, one must go within and deliberately choose the nature of their thoughts.

It is the natural tendency of the ego to justify what is negative or wrong in a current situation in an attempt to improve an environment. Because the laws of physics are always responding to each and every thought, attention given to undesirable things keeps attracting more of the same. When experiencing unwanted events and situations in life, it is crucial for one to shift their thoughts to the things that arouse joy and happiness if they want to observe improved results.

Each and every person is in complete control of their thoughts. When you become aware of this fact, you take control of your life. Remaining disciplined and persistent in what you give your focused attention to will manifest the results that you are seeking. Achieving sustainable levels of joy and happiness is completely possible! To allow more joy to flow into your life experience and live a life that is “happily ever after”, follow these seven proven steps:

• Make the decision to allow joy to flow into your life. Choose it NOW!
• Make it your dominant intent each and every day to feel joy in whatever you are doing. Joy is your quest. By focusing on the things in your life that make you feel good, you literally train your thoughts at a physical level. As one persistently inclines the mind to joy, happiness becomes a chronic habit in your life. This means that as good feeling thoughts dominate your consciousness, happiness effortlessly flows into all areas of your life.
• Write down all the things that make you feel good and produce happiness in your life. Make room each day to remind yourself of those things and create the time to do them. Writing down what you desire strongly emphasizes your belief that what you are seeking is achievable.
• To further emphasize what you REALLY want, think and speak only of those things. Place all your attention and focus on your desires. If you find yourself thinking and speaking about unwanted things, stop and refocus on the things that you really want.
• Find the positive aspects in every situation and persons around you. Even if you do not feel good in or around them, when you look for something to appreciate, such as lessons learned, experience gained, one discovers relief from the negative feeling thoughts. This allows the energy to shift into a more positive experience which consequently improves the situation.
• Keep a positive expectation on all the wonderful changes that are going to occur in your life as a result of feeling good. When you nurture a desire by strongly believing that what you are seeking is going to show up, your mind becomes a powerful magnet that attracts the things you are thinking about. Observe the positive changes as they take place in your environment.
• Celebrate ALL successes no matter how large or small.

When you make it your life long quest to experience joy, you open the door to a sustainable happiness. Everything that you have ever desired or imagined for yourself will easily and effortlessly flow into your life. This is the ultimate experience of living “happily ever after”. Keep yourself happy by doing what you love and enjoying everything you do. Be happy NOW!

Wealth Consciousness Bootcamp is HERE!

My friends Cindy Ashton and Elizabeth Grant
have made it their mission to help as many people
as possible create a healthy, generous, abundant
relationship with money in the next four weeks.

I just learned about an incredible opportunity
and wanted to share it with you right away. Here's
a letter from Cindy and Elizabeth:

Wealth Consciousness Boot Camp

Develop a new relationship with money … for good!

Are you sick and tired of always trying new ways
to generate more income, but you never seem to
reach your goals, leaving you discouraged and frustrated?

Do you seem to attract circumstances that always
keep prosperity just out of reach? It’s time
for you to create a positive relationship with money … for good!

“Here’s how you can shift your wealth consciousness in
21 days and start living your passion using ‘insider strategies’
used by some of the world’s greatest minds!”

Cindy was recently featured next to Donald Trump
in Performance Magazine, where she shared her
insider secrets to conquering those money obstacles.

Elizabeth has risen up triumphantly after near bankruptcy
and eviction. She now empowers you with the key strategies
to change your wealth consciousness.

If you’re sick and tired of always struggling with
money, then we have an affordable and irresistible
solution for you.

Even if you’re debt-free and
making ends meet, you’re about to see how you
can begin to shift your wealth consciousness in 21 days
to create more prosperity … and preserve your wealth
for the long-term.


We’re going to show you why looking for a “quick fix”
with your finances almost NEVER works and how you
can finally make real and permanent changes to your
financial situation and overall happiness. The trap that
so many of us fall into is to panic about our financial
situation and then seek out ways of making fast money.

What ends up happening instead is that because we feel
backed into a corner, we end up making rash decisions
we regret later. Some of us get roped into ‘get rich quick’
schemes; others just jump into new ventures without thinking,
and so on.

For money to flow freely in your life, your mind, body,
and spirit must all be in alignment about money.
This means your thoughts, actions and your “being” –
including your beliefs about money.

Your outer life is simply a reflection of the inner you.

Some people can’t attract money. Some attract it
but can’t keep it. And many people stay in a perpetual
state of debt. It doesn’t have to be this way.


The Wealth Consciousness Boot Camp is all about
creating PERMANENT, REAL changes. We're going
to teach you about financial set points and how you
can change yours.

We are not going to promise you a quick fix.
If you’ve been brainwashed for the majority of your life,
you need to re-brainwash yourself. To make a long-lasting
shift, you need to be consistent. Study with it every
day and have a support team.

Now, what would happen if you could conquer your
negative money patterns, shifting your consciousness
so you can maintain your integrity and values while
energizing you into action to create financial wealth in
a positive way?

We don’t want you to spend 10 years figuring all this out like
Elizabeth did.

That’s why we created this program … to give you the
tools you need and the support you need to make a shift
much more quickly.

We will guarantee you that by the end of the program,
if you are willing to do the work, you will have broken
through some of your money blocks, shifted your thinking
and be well on your way to creating greater wealth
and happiness for yourself in the long term.

You will have begun to shift your wealth consciousness …
the key to creating lasting prosperity.

YES Cindy & Elizabeth, I am ready to change
my wealth Consciousness! Show me your affordable,
irresistible offer:


Give it a look...and if you don’t start feeling a
shift in your wealth consciousness we have a
money back guarantee!

A Beautiful Weekend!

Just wanted to share these beautiful photos that I took of Niagara Falls this past Memorial Day weekend. One of the Seven Wonders of the World and referred to as one of the most "spiritual places on this earth" by Paramahansa Yogananda, this vortex truly replenishes the soul! It is amazing how refreshed and rejuevenated you feel after visiting this spot. I took many more photos especially of my daughters. Now I am looking forward to scrapbooking them!

Also had the opportunity to be a guest on the Good Vibrations Radio: Tools for Transformation with Solarzar and Kyralani on Saturday, May 23, on AM 540 KRXA broadcast from Monterey, California. You can listen to the podcast at the Guest Page of or download a copy at

"Giggle with Joy"

This is an intentional scrapbooking LO that I created for my youngest daughter. For those of you who subscribe to my newsletter know that our family recently moved across the country three months ago. The transition created a lot of change and really placed us out of our comfort zone. Knowing what I know, I understand the huge amount of potential that can amass from such change. The baby, however happy to be with her momma, has had a complete change in routine and environment. Not understanding why her entire world has completely changed, I find that she is still searching to define new boundaries for herself.

So I created this LO with the intention that joy and laughter find her once again, to be happy in our new environment. While I envisioned her realignment with the abundance of joy that is her true nature, I received an intuitive hit that she had been reacting to my response in the change of environment. This LO was very healing for me in that it allowed me to discover new thoughts and ideas of how to allow more joy into both of our lives as a whole.

The result had been amazing! Created only one week ago, I found that she would courageously and confidently leave my side to discover activities that made her happy. Not only would these activities keep her entertained for a prolonged period of time, she now keeps herself entertained through song. This is the first time I have ever heard her sing like this. Too precious for words! That I have to capture on video. I am so happy to physically recognize the shift in her persona. This is a wonderful example of the power of intention and how a person can use it to uplift others. Just by changing the way we think and finding new thoughts and feeling centered around specific experience, a person can impact the world and the lives of others in such positive ways.

"Wish" Altered Wood Block

The other day I was wishing for something specific and I decided to focus on what I was wishing for into a piece of art. So I grabbed this wood block that I had for some time, painted it with acrylic paint, added some remaining supplies that I had left over from this month's Creating Intentions Kit "Happily Ever After" and set the intention to attract the fulfilled outcome of my wish.

The process of conceptualizing an inspired idea or wish and focusing it into a created piece of art is so powerful on so many levels. The entire process is spent thinking about, feeling about and visualizing about the intended desired outcome. The focus outlet of creating at a physical level allows for new neural connections to be made in the brain and deeply reinforced and strengthened depending on the prolonged amount of time and energy placed into the project.

Now I have this fantastic piece of art to remind me to hold the vision of my wish. To keep my eye on the prize so to speak. It is more than a piece of art, it is a symbol of a desired outcome that I deliberately intend to create in my life. This anchor helps me to hold the focus. It gently reminds me of what I know on a deep inner level....that whatever I place my consistent focus and attention on is what I attract as my life experience. Life is all about creating yourself. It truly is a magical life. Have a wonderful day!
