I mentioned before about the lottery...well, tonight I won $15 in the Powerball lottery!! I had the red ball (the power ball) number of 12 AND I had done power play! I originally thought I just won $3, but then later (about 20 minutes later!) saw the power play marked "yes"! The power play number was x5, so there's my $15! Want more proof?? Well, I have been researching the field of coaching and after deciding it was in harmony with my desires, I wanted to get the first three books on my list! I found them on ebay for $5 each. So I had set my intention to get that $15....see where I'm going....? :)

Also, my baby-to-toddler bibs: I wanted to get $40 today. It came to me that I could sell 8 bibs to a local shop in town. I quickly finished 8, and packed up the little ones and headed out on my mission. The woman who owned the store was very excited about them as well, and we agreed that she would buy them for $5 and sell them for $10. As I was heading out of the store another woman came in with a baby and they instantly started talking about how much they liked them! Now, my absolute deadline to get $40 is Monday night, so like Bob Proctor says, it's not a failure if it didn't manifest in your time frame, it's just that you didn't know how long yet that manifestation would take! But don't give up on it!

The Six Minutes To Success program is doing so many wonderful things for me! I was up this morning at 5:30am and was more productive than ever! The bonus audios you get with the membership are INCREDIBLE and LIFE ALTERING! I feel like a new person! I couldn't sit still and watch tv as I normally would have because my mind was tuned to receiving ideas! Everything I did today had a purpose and was in line with achieving my goals! I am so happy and excited by all of this! I'm off now to plan tomorrow tonight, and then read Think and Grow Rich! As soon as the kids have breakfast I am going to claim my lottery winnings! I'm on my way to that jackpot!!

Update so far

I have been really busy with reading and studying! Not to mention Zoey's birthday is Saturday (she's turning 1!) so we have been planning for that as well! I'm learning so much and I just feel like my optimism is 100% untouchable! I have this incredible feeling inside, like I'm just over flowing with excitement and joy! I feel something HUGE is about to happen! I know that the things that are about to happen in my life are going to be incredible! Right now I have finished chapter 4 of Think and Grow Rich, and I will be starting chapter 5 this evening. I've also begun to make my way carefully through the first lesson of The Laws of Success in 16 Lessons! In addition, I've come across a potential business opportunity that I feel drawn to at least look into. I will not let money keep me from a life changing opportunity, so that 'excuse' is already canceled ahead of time! :) I can do anything. I will be a millionaire. I will live in the house you see on the left side of my blog. I will have a new car by February 2010. Why put a timeline on it? Because I know it will come to me. It's mine. And your desires are yours, so go get them! :)

The Laws of Success and The Lottery

I have read some differing opinions about using the Laws of Success/Attraction to win the lottery. This is my take on it. If it is your burning desire, and you have not a trace of doubt in your mind, and you have an exact amount of money you intend to receive, and a date by which to do it....and know what you will give back in return, then it will work. See, even if other millionaires tell you it can not be done, well that is their opinion and in my own opinion contradictory to what they are saying to you in the first place: there is NO limit to what you can achieve and no matter how impossible it may seem you can still reach your goals. So in theory then, who are they to say that the LAW will not work in certain situations? Are they not just becoming an obstacle to overcome by saying such things? I think that they are. I have great respect for all people, but to put a limit on someone like that is incorrect. See, they do not KNOW that you can not win the lottery like that, and in FACT people DO win the lottery!! What is the difference then? I will tell you. The difference is making it a burning desire. To have NO doubt. To know that you MUST win or perish. To never quit. To not accept defeat as a reality. It is yours. Go get it. Believe you already have received it and FEEL as though you have! So to those "big names" out there that want to claim that attracting a winning lottery ticket is a lousy goal: you are wrong for placing YOUR opinion on someone else's desire!

My Life Today August 2, 2009

Today is August 2, 2009 and marks the first day of my 12 month commitment to studying the secret. This post is to mark where my life is today and all that is going on right now. On August 2, 2010 I will post another "My Life Today" and then the two can be compared! I am looking forward to seeing a huge difference--such that it would seem we are reading about two different people leading two very different lives! So here it is:

I am 26 years old, and have been married for 3 years and 7 months tomorrow. We have three wonderful children: Dominic, Drake and Zoey. We live in a two bedroom, one bath house that we rent for $500 per month. We drive a 1998 Chevy Malibu, and John works at Imation. Our income is about $1800 per month. I have just received 1,000 hits on my ArtFire studio, and have sold 14 baby-to-toddler bibs thus far. Dominic lives in California during the school year, and spends the summers (and Christmas when possible) with us! We are trying to conceive baby #4, and hoping to be due in May 2010! We play the Oklahoma lottery and look forward to that jackpot! I am working on getting my baby bibs sold in a store, and am expecting great results with that! I have new money making ideas that I am ready to see manifested as well! I don't have much in the way of a wardrobe right now. Really I only have one pair of shorts, one pair of jeans, and about 4 decent shirts that look okay on me! The rest are tank tops that just don't fit or work to wear out of the house so they are more like pajamas! LOL I have one pair of tennis shoes (like running shoes I guess), worn out Converse and a pair of pink flip flops that are in need of replacing! LOL My hair is a mess of color right now because I am trying to let it grow out and see the natural color! I plan on letting it grow out long enough so I can just cut off the remaining dyed part, but I don't want to be left with really short hair so it could be awhile!

So that is my life today, and I look forward to the transformation in the next 12 months! See you in the future! :)

Mental Clarity...Coming Into Focus

This morning I was up early, and I feel so much mental clarity, even if it's just starting! Ideas are coming to me that I didn't have as of last night! Money making ideas! Great ideas! I don't need to know how to make them happen, I just need to have the ideas! I have decided to give myself 12 months to seriously study these secrets of success. To begin with I am going to write out where my life is today, and then in one year, I will write down where I am at again and then compare the two! I am excited because I feel as though in one year when I look back it's going to be as if I am reading about two different people in two very different lives!

Last night I read Chapter 1 of Think and Grow Rich and so for the first part of today I will re-read that chapter. Tonight I will move on to Chapter 2. This way I will go to sleep with new information, but then spend the next day reading it a second time and thinking about it more! John is going to join me with this and I look forward to great things taking place in our lives!

This process is going to be long, but fun! And who wouldn't want to have a full year of fun?! In my next post I will write out where my life is right now! Be sure to follow me so you can check back in twelve months to see all the wonderful changes that have happened!

Think and Grow Rich Chapter 1

I have begun to study the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. The suggested reading plan is to read no more than one chapter per night and to truly meditate over it. So that is what I am going to be doing! Tonight is chapter 1 so that is what this post is about! Enjoy!

Chapter 1 is a great introduction to it all! Turning your thoughts into reality is a real and factual thing. But you can not just think it once and let it go--you have to desire it specifically. Believe in it. Know it to be yours. And to never stop short. If you quit before you get your desires, how do you know if it wasn't coming in the next hour? The next day? Next week? Become so obsessive with it that it consumes everything you do and is everything you work for. I know exactly what I want. I know the exact address to my dream house. I know the layout. I know how much the taxes are on it each year. I know what car I will have--I know the make, model, color and features. I know how much money I will make. I know it all--in great detail! I focus on it constantly. When the kids are pushing their limits with me, I instantly find myself focused on my desires. And my positive thinking. I watch my visualization videos every day and read/meditate on the Optimist's Creed as well. But I am also on a new challenge as I mentioned before--to think positive thoughts only! Today was the first day of that challenge and it's working! I have found a copy of Think and Grow Rich AND The Law of Success in 16 Lessons -- FOR FREE. I didn't have the funds in my account today, but I KNEW that I needed these books. As of about 9:30pm, I had them. I will study them. I will apply them.

Tomorrow is Chapter 2, Desire, and I am thrilled to wake up and read it! I am going to get some housework done tonight, and while I am I will be contemplating the first chapter in the book. I feel a fire burning within me and it's only getting larger and hotter---I will receive all that I desire!

Changes are coming, and they are coming fast! I know they are--I can feel it.

A Manifestation!

I mentioned before that as soon as I could I was going to get the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Well, I have no money to buy it right now, but I just knew that I NEEDED that book!! I looked on ebay and found some good deals, but again I don't have the money this second to get it! So I Googled it....and found a free pdf version of the book! I was amazed! I actually manifested a FREE copy of this book! I am still planning on getting a physical copy because I just prefer to be able to read wherever I am at and being at my computer isn't always fun! LOL But I do have it and I am going to start reading it this afternoon as soon as the kids are napping! I am so excited to see more manifestations!

You too can find it if you attract it! ;)

Challenges Update

I haven't been posting for a few days due to being busy with the kids and sewing! But I wanted to update everyone on my challenges!!

My thinking is improving and I am becoming more positive every day! There is so much less stress in my life and I have more confidence than ever! I also accepted a 30 day challenge from to think NOTHING but positive thoughts every day all day for 30 days! So this is day 1 on that challenge!

I took that challenge last night before going to bed and it is already working! I had a nightmare last night in my sleep and in my dream I told myself that I can choose my thoughts, and that the dream was just a bad thought! So I immediately started thinking "dream house dream house...." and kept saying it and then suddenly my dream went from a nightmare to being a good dream about living in that house!

There are more laws that go hand in hand with The Secret, and the blog I mentioned above is going to help me learn all of them! Just as soon as I get my hands on the book Think and Get Rich I will be even more on the right track to success!

Anything good happening lately? Why yes! I am working with a store owner who is interested in exclusivity of some of my baby-to-toddler bibs and am expecting great things to happen with that! John is finding new job opportunities, and Zoey's birthday party is coming together nicely for next Saturday! We have attracted more company to us--our family members and some friends came over on Thursday night after what was a spontaneous invite from John to just his friend and brother to come over! Turned out to be an all night event with everyone we enjoy having around, but we hardly ever see! It was a lot of fun! I am finding it easier and easier to be grateful for all those little things we often over look!

Like Michelle said on her challenge video (see the above blog!): "Are you breathing?" That is such a great inspiration! I know that sometimes we can get down in a slump and think there isn't anything to be grateful for but really, "are you breathing?"--yes? Well then be thankful for that! Just last night I was thinking about how grateful I was/am to be able to take a shower every day and any time I want, and to have the body wash I like, and to have shampoo and conditioner, and to have my razor, and .... you get the idea! Just think what it would be like to NOT have the things you do! Computer? TV? Books? Kids? Beds? Food? Job? Car? Even if it may not be the "best" or your "dream", at least you have it, right? I mean, if you want more kids but find that you are unable and yet you already have children, shouldn't you be thankful for the ones you do have? And you may not have your own computer at your disposal, but are you not having at least access to one right now to read this?? You may not have a lot of food, but are you at least eating every day? See what I mean! It's easy when you really step back and see what it could be like to NOT have these things! I mean really think about this!!! Are you grateful for indoor plumbing?? I know I am! LOL

What are you grateful for? Sight? Hearing? Sense of smell? Ability to walk/talk/read/write...? ???

Days 6 and 7 of 30/100

Sorry for not posting the last two days! The last two days I have done my visuals and optimism challenge, and I know things are changing! The vision board is a great thing to have because I see it throughout my day! I got an order for three Baby-to-Toddler bibs on Sunday so that was definitely a great thing! I find myself smiling for "no reason" throughout the day, although I know that the reason is The Secret. I look forward to my days, and intend for them to be incredible!!

Today is day 8, so I will post back tonight about today! But I intend for it to be great and for great things to manifest for me!

Intend to Have an Amazing Day!

Good morning!

I was thinking today that often when we kiss our significant others good-bye for the day, a lot of times someone will say "Have a good day!" and the response usually is either "You too" or "I will". But really, are you/they INTENDING to have a great day, or just saying the auto-pilot response? Don't forget to feel that feeling of already knowing and having a great day! Wake up and tell yourself "This is a fantastic day! I am so grateful and happy to experience so many great things!" Really feel it sinking in until it makes you FEEL like it has already happened! Hold that feeling with you--smile because you KNOW you are having -- CREATING -- a fantastic day for yourself and those around you! Understand that some people may not be feeling that way, but if you smile and allow that feeling to radiate from you it can change their mood as well! And isn't that wonderful?? To know that just by telling yourself you are creating an amazing day, and feeling it, you can transmit that feeling--that energy--to those around you and help to lift them up as well as yourself!

When thinking about your to-do lists for the day, make "Create an amazing day" top of the list! Hold that in your mind in everything you do today---this way you will be doing your every day tasks with the intent on it aiding you in creating that amazing day!

I am looking forward to today's experiences and would love to hear how your day turns out!

Smile, even if no one is around.....because you KNOW the Secret!

Day 5 30/100

Today was a wonderful day! I feel happy and optimistic and carefree! Here is what has happened today: in the mail we received a package of little toys/prizes from my mom to add to the kids' Prize Box (for good behavior), and the Pentalic notebook I bought for John to do his comic strips! Great surprises there! When I went to the Wal*Mart this afternoon I received front row parking, followed by ending up in the fastest and shortest checkout, then a gentleman held the door open on the way out for me and Zoey! On my way to the next store, I again received front parking! I played the lotto for tonight's Powerball and Pick 3 and although our numbers weren't called tonight, we are one drawing closer and we are very excited! We shared the secret with some family members as well! I am very excited to see the changes that they bring about in their lives, too! I also had forgot my ID when I went to the gas station to pick up some beer for the guys (we grilled for dinner and had everyone over!)--so instead of thinking "I hope they don't ask for my ID" I instead put out there "I will buy the beer with just my credit card". AND I DID! Also when I went back out to get some juice for me and the kids I noticed the rewards program at that gas station and finally inquired about it! Turns out I can attract money to myself that way as well! They give money back on gas and also random prizes, such as $50 gift cards to use there! How cool is that?! I also created a vision board this afternoon and it is hanging in our living room! We have a bare space on one wall that just never had anything there, but the vision board was just MADE to go there! It looks so right! On it I have the Real Estate flyer to our dream house, lotto tickets, a receipt from the ATM that I whited out that balance on and wrote in $500,000.00, a photo of a dog (although it isn't the exact breed we want, it's a place holder and above I wrote "German Shepard"!), a pregnant belly ;), and a Geico Money guy but it's just him with $500,000.00 written on top! I am so grateful for all the wonderful things in my life!

If you haven't started on a challenge of your own, you should start NOW! It can be anything! Even 10 days of just reading the Optimist's Creed! Remember: you don't need to know how it will work, just know and believe it will and does! I'm excited to tell you all of what tomorrow brings!

Day 4 30/100

Yesterday was day 4 of my challenges! We went to the bank to look into getting an auto loan, and although we didn't get it, we were shown things on our credit report that were in fact inaccurate! So, we are now able to look into getting those corrected--had we not gone to the bank, we would have never found this out! Our car is being attracted to us right now, we know it! I watched the dvd twice last night, and after falling asleep while holding my desires in my mind, I woke up suddenly and had this overwhelming need to get up and buy a lottery ticket! I had had the numbers in my head for a few days, the numbers relating to our dream home! So I went out and intended to just buy a Pick 3 ticket, but when I got there I was drawn to the big lottery! I was able to play all the numbers I had had in my head, and then when I went to buy both, the time was just a few minutes too late to play the Pick 3--but I am going back today! Anyways, it was a good thing that I didn't do the Pick 3 last night because those weren't the numbers I chose! But it will happen for us! The lottery is 88 Million and that is a great sign, because Zoey, my daughter, was born on 8/8/08 at 8:03am! I know these numbers I have will win and I just have to maintain my belief AND the feeling as if I've already won! I am so excited! I have been feeling happier and happier as the days go one!

As for expecting and receiving unexpected checks in the mail every day, I received a great discount pass to my favorite store the other day, and in the mail last night was a charitable donations summary that shows we donated $120.00 and it is tax deductible! So to me, that is like having a $120 check in the mail--even if it comes in my tax return! :)

My next step is to take a tour of our dream home!

I am feeling fabulous, and I am master of my thoughts!

Day 3 of 30/100

Today is/was day 3! I did my visualizations this morning and this evening. I felt great all day! Excellent mood! Very optimistic! I am awaiting a phone call from the bank in the morning that will tell me our auto loan has been approved! I found a great 2004 Dodge Durango SLT with the third row seats, in dark silver and with new tires! It's a bit of a drive, but worth it! I know I am attracting the perfect car for my family! I feel so many wonderful things happening already! Tomorrow is going to be another fantastic day! One way or another I will have my new vehicle and it will be wonderful to take the kids for a drive in it this weekend! I feel more passion now than ever before about my life and where it's going!

Looking forward to tomorrow!

*Still trying to get the dining set photos to link up...*

A New Car!

I have learned that you need a few things for your desires to manifest: absolute belief, living as though you already have them, and awareness of opportunities that present themselves! Later this morning I will be going to the bank for an auto loan! The car that I found, a 2004 Dodge Durango SLT, has the number of seats I want and it also combines what both myself and John are looking for! It is about $8,000 and it is actually in silver! That is the color I wanted when I considered the 2009 Grand Caravan! After reading reviews and everything, I decided to make a smart money move and go for the silver Durango! I think it's so cool that this all presented itself to me! I called the dealership and they still have the vehicle, although it is out on loan right now but they are going to call as soon as it gets back on the lot! After I get approved for the auto loan, I am going straight over to the dealer to tell them that I do have the money right away and will be interested in purchasing that vehicle! I am surprised to see how quickly my attitude is changing! I used to think it would be years before anything like this would start to happen and here I am going to the bank! I am very excited to come back in a couple of days to post photos of our new 2004 Dodge Durango!

In regards to my challenges, I have already done my morning visualizations and Creed! I am off now to play The Secret Memory Game on the website! I know that by the Law of Attraction the number of tries it takes me will match the message that is perfect for me right now!

Always know that your desires will manifest! Believe in your power!

Have an INCREDIBLE day! I will be back tonight to report on my challenges!

Day 2 of 30/100

Today was day 2. I felt over joyed about our new home, and new car and all the wonderful things I am to receive! I found out that a 2004 Dodge Durango is half the price of the Grand Caravan I'd originally wanted, not mention gets better gas mileage, AND in the paper there was an add at the bank we've tried to get a home loan through for auto loans! They had an excellent interest rate, and by going through them for a smaller auto loan we will build good credit, which puts us on the path to our home! I am going over to the bank in the morning to see about getting pre-approved! I just KNOW that we will be and we will get the perfect car for our family!

I looked at some dining room furniture and selected both a formal and casual dining set! I will add those photos to the slideshow tomorrow. I have also begun to work with The American Monk audio tracks. WOW! Talk about relaxing! Highly recommend those! I am excited and grateful for all the amazing things that are to come in the next 30/100 days and so on!

Stay positive! Know what it is you want! Watch the videos I've posted for visualization--a great way to get started!

The American Monk

I have started the seven free lessons from the American Monk website and I really enjoy them! It is teaching me how to properly meditate, stop bad thoughts, etc. I will post more about my journey with this later, but just wanted you all to know about it! If you want the link to the lessons let me know and I can email it to you! You download mp3 audio tracks so you can use them repeatedly! I know this is going to be phenomenal in my quest to apply The Secret in my life! Click on the link below to check out the website!

Day 1 of 30/100

It is now the end of day 1 of both of my challenges. I have watched the visualizations several times throughout the day, as well as read the Creed several times. I noticed that I can start to spin everything into a more positive light, and my outlook is a little less stressed! I feel calm and collected--at peace within myself. I look forward to all of the great things that are to come in the next 30 and 100 days! We drove out to look at our dream home, which we will be moving into July 2012, one way or another! That is the beauty of The Secret: you don't need to know how, or when, just that it will happen. The rest will unfold as you go. Jack Canfield said on the dvd that it's like headlights: you can see 100-200 feet at a time in the dark with headlights on, but you can drive from California to New York like that because ALL YOU NEED TO SEE IS THE NEXT 200 FEET. And it will continue to unfold as you go along! I am so excited to be doing this!

I have posted my wants/goals around the house, one spot being above the sink. I don't have a dishwasher, so it's been great to do dishes but be distracted from the chore because I am focusing on my list! I am very passionate about the things on my list, and I know that they will all become my reality!

I will be going to bed soon, but before I do I will be doing the visualization videos and the Creed once more. Also, I am going to focus on the things that I want and will have!

Best thoughts only!

100 Days of Optimism Challenge

In addition to my 30 Day Visualization Challenge, I have decided to also take part in my own 100 Days of Optimism Challenge! It will be very simple, but I am expecting HUGE results! For the next 100 days, I will read the Optimist's Creed every morning when I wake up, and every evening before going to bed. Also, I will read it when I start to feel any negativity rise within me. I know that this will help me to apply The Secret every day in my life. Even though my printer may be out of ink right now, which is preventing me from printing out the Creed, I have wrote it down and posted it onto yellow construction paper! Why yellow? Well, when looking at all the color options I had on hand, I was drawn to the yellow and saw it as 'fitting' for an optimist!

Join me in this 100 Days of Optimism Challenge, as well as the 30 Day Visualization Challenge! So many wonderful things are going to happen--you don't want to miss out!

The link to The Optimist's Creed:

30 Day Visualization Challenge

I have watched The Secret dvd twice now, and am making my way through the book for the second time as well! After exploring more on The Secret's website,, I found the Visualization Tools! They are wonderful! I have decided to begin a 30 Day Visualization Challenge, in which I will watch all four videos at least once a day, for the next 30 days! I will be posting daily about this, as well as other things relating to The Secret being applied in my life! I hope you will also decide to start your own 30 day challenge and watch as great things happen! I know that all of my dreams will come true, as I am master of my own thoughts!

**You'll notice 3 of the 4 videos below, the only one I couldn't get was The Optimists Creed, so you'll just have to click on The Secret website on the left to find it!**

Please feel free to comment back as you desire! I would love to hear from you, whether it's questions, thoughts, or even your own success stories!
