Thoughts Literally Create Our Lives and Our Headlines

The message of affirmations, raising your vibration, and shifting the world is not really complex. It’s ubiquitous as the baseline of spiritual teachings from around the world. That premise is now backed by decades of scientific confirmation. As Mike Dooley says, “Thoughts become things.”

1) Our feelings become our thoughts.
2) Our thoughts become our actions.
3) Our actions become our individual lives.
4) The same is true for everyone else around us.
5) Our collective feelings, thoughts, and actions become our daily headlines.

There’s a simple valve at the beginning of that process. Most humans, for whatever reason – nature, nurture, or both – have a rather negative default setting that forms the basis of their feelings. Unguarded, that negativity passes into their thoughts and actions and becomes the world we see around us.

Meditation, prayer, affirmations are all methods for learning to guard the the thoughts by raising their vibration to something productive rather than destructive.

We are constantly telling ourselves a story about our world and ourselves. That story generally creates a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Those thoughts:

I am/I am not
I can/I can’t
I’m amazing/I’m f’d up

are constantly flowing through our minds, into our actions, and out into the world. Because it’s unconscious and mainly reactionary, unless we consciously choose to change it, our world winds up being a summation of that thinking and those actions.

People are angry and empty and they don’t even know why.

All I’m saying is two simple things:

1) You’re in control of your thoughts and they go a long way toward creating your life.
2) The more people get that and apply it, the better world we’ll collectively create.

It’s not vapid, vague, or incomprehensible. It’s backed by tons of modern science and 5000 thousand years of spiritual teaching. Anyone can apply these principles by controlling that valve between raw emotion and productive thoughts and actions that move us forward.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, TOU are awesome!

The Answers: They’re Here and Now Not There and Then

Just like a person, a nation and a species cannot look anywhere and not see its conscious or unconscious choices manifested.

Indifference to injustice burns things down as surely as a match. Intolerance for different opinions ends a civil society. Playing into the game of “Us” and “Them” only allows the gatekeepers of an unhappy status quo to extend their games of control.

Mindset makes us and mindsets break us. If we live by our aspirations rather than our grievances, we’ll climb every mountain that stands between us and better future.

If we choose to persist in paradigms that keep us weak, divided, and conquered; there’s probably no way to prevent our eventual self-destruction.
That choice does not begin with anyone else. It does not depend on the outcome of any election. It starts with you and me and it starts right now!

Don’t worry. That’s great news. You don’t have to count on anyone to begin the change but you.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are AWESOME!

The Life of a Nation in Chaos

The life of a nation is like the life of a person. We’re given challenges so we can get better. I’d say the past few months and the current sad situation around the country are both such opportunities.


Like a person, a nation can continue to ignore its issues and its need to be better or it can seize the opportunity and the responsibility for making itself better.

For better or for worse, our country, our world, and our species is undergoing profound changes. They will be coming more and more rapidly. Minds stuck in old thinking will find themselves in great distress. Even the most enlightened minds among us will be greatly challenged.


Positive people seeking to steer these changes in high vibration directions can no longer afford to be bystanders. Either positive energy or nefarious energy is going to set the tone going forward. Our moment of decision on which it will prevail has arrived.

I leave you with some “We” affirmations.


Through our struggles, we are becoming a better nation.
Through our struggles, we are becoming better people.
Through our struggles, we are learning to see injustice and to stop it.
Through our struggles, we are learning to see the greater good and to act upon it.
Through our struggles, We are becoming the men/women we came to the planet to be.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!


Peace, prosperity, and health to you and yours.

Our Thinking Will Decide the “New Normal”

We’re hearing a lot these days about the “New Normal.” We must not simply sit back and let others define that for us. We must be active participants in deciding what that new normal is and in taking responsibility for the thinking and paradigms that create it. This is a moment of opportunity. Let us seize it to move the world forward.

I captured my thoughts about this in a quick video today. I’d love to hear your thoughts and the hope and the challenges the “New Normal” presents.

Evening Reflections – War, Peace, and Mindsets

We saw again this weekend, with the attack on Saudi Arabia and the reaction, the results that we get in the world with the mindsets that currently prevail in our collective consciousness.

Beware of those always selling war. Suspect world events that steer nations away from peace in the nick of time to preserve perpetual war. Being a force for light, postivity, and empowerment means seeing the with world clear eyes and discernment.

Positive thinking and changing mindsets must not be solely an exercise in self-realization and self-actualization. The same principles, techniques, and mindsets that can transform your life can transform the world.

Our world has many of the characteristics of an individual with low self-esteem, anger and ego issues, and a fear-based mindset.

Just as with an individual, these mindsets result in failure and destruction in the body of the species and the planet.

Beyond finding a raft to cross the stream of consciousness for ourselves, let us be beacons and advocates for the very different mindsets, power structures, and ideologies it will take to move humanity and each of us to the next level.

Keep on believing in better!
