Words of Wisdom: Ready for an Adventure? ;-)

october sunset 1

New people, new lands, new ways and new experiences open the possibility of expanding our spirits and flushing out the stagnant particles in our blood.”


What do you think?

Does a change of scene and pace always result in a renewed and/or awakened spirit?

I think it definitely can help.

And I’m SOOOO ready/long-overdue for a new adventure!! 😉


Book Review: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy

The Best $1 You Will Ever Spend! 😉

subconscious mind book

After reading about Cynthia Stafford’s amazing lottery win ($112 MILLION) and how she credited much of her success to Joseph Murphy’s work, I decided to give this kindle book a try.

The Power of the Subconscious Mind,

exceeded my expectations, and in many ways.

I’ve read a lot of LOA books, especially in the past couple of years…some good, some so-so, some just “get rich quick” schemes for the authors, or so it often seems. And when it comes to the older books on this topic, they often seem dated and not relevant for people living in today’s world.

The Power of the Subconscious Mind is a winner, in all respects.

It IS extremely relevant, for anyone who is looking to add more abundance and success to their life.

It is NOT preachy, although it’s obvious that the author did have strong religious beliefs, he doesn’t “preach” or push a particular creed or religion at any time in this book.

His message is a universal one, for everyone seeking a happier, healthier and more prosperous life. And who isn’t?? 😉

The practical advice in this book is easy to follow and powerful. Enjoyable and not a chore to follow through with and continue to do so!! A nice change from some other books on the topic I’ve read and gave up on.

I make it a point to re-read a couple of chapters, a few of times during the week, as a good reminder and pick me up. I’ve had some excellent results already, following many of the suggestions in this book.

No, I haven’t won 112 MILLION as Cynthia Stafford did, but I’ve had a lot of smaller wins so far, and not just when it comes to financial gains.

And as Murphy so wisely states in this book, money and prosperity ARE very important, but they are not the whole story when it comes to living a successful and happy life.

If you are debating about what Law of Attraction book to buy, you won’t be sorry if you choose this one!


An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend :-)

wellness thoughts

The mind-body connection is so powerful. 🙂

And sadly, that power is often forgotten when it is needed most.

I always try to dwell on good thoughts these days; focusing on what’s positive, throughout each day.

I also strive to let go of the petty annoyances that come up; in the big picture, they really mean little or nothing at all. 

That kind of positive energy and thought pattern can also have a profound effect on how we are feeling and on our overall health. I know personally just how well this works.

I’ve “been there” when it comes to talking about and dwelling on every little ache and pain and my larger health concerns too, over the years. I know now without any doubt, that dwelling on health and wellness at all times DOES impact reality in significant ways, if we stick with it. 

If you haven’t already, try it! You will be amazed by the power of your subconscious mind if you let it work its wonders.

The body/mind connection. It works for or against us, every day. The choice is ours.

Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend! 🙂


Spring Lilacs and an Inspiring Quote :-)

lilacs and quote

The lilacs are in full bloom here in BC; one of my all-time favorite flowers.

Don’t you just love that amazing scent? 🙂

I’ve added a quote to this photo that I hope you find inspiring too.

When we “step up to the plate” and make an important decision in life, we should be glad that we could and that we did.

It isn’t always the easy route to make changes, decisions… but it IS always something to celebrate. 

Have a wonderful (and here in Canada, long) 😉 weekend! 


An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend…

seize the day

I wrote this quote in a journal I have, many years ago and happened to read it again this morning.

It was a timely reminder for me, I hope you enjoy it too.

We really DO need to take time not only to “seize” each day, but also to celebrate the high points, victories, wins..each and every night. It can put a whole new perspective on the days to come too. 

Have a wonderful and creative weekend, G 🙂


A Quote I “Needed” Recently ;-)

the best way to begin

After a very productive year in 2013, it seemed that I had “lost my steam” when it came to creative projects, since the new year began. In addition to a number of offline projects I’m (trying) to work on, I also have 3 new books/ebooks pending. 

This past week, I knew I had to get myself in gear and really start moving on all my projects.The quote above, once again came to mind. It’s one of my own and I hope you find it helpful too.

And that’s exactly what I needed to do. JUST BEGIN and let the muse follow. 

And you know, it worked! Simple but powerful words.

In the past couple of days alone, I’ve gotten 20 pages of one of my books typed and formatted and I hope make that will have it finished by the first week in April, before my birthday! 

What do you do when you feel less than motivated? When you have lost your muse?

Suggestions like these are always welcome. We all need them, at least some of the time. 😉

Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
