The world is an amazing place! I am in awe of all the miracles every day. One of my favorite quotes is from Albert Einstein:
There are two ways to live:
you can live as if nothing is a miracle;
you can live as if everything is a miracle.

It’s interesting that a genius with such a scientific mind would be talking about miracles…but what is life really?

There is so much that can unfold in your life. You are exactly where you need to be right now and all the things that you’ve experienced have lead you to this place. But the future is a blank canvas, waiting for you to choose the outcome you desire.
Once you understand how you truly are a creator in your life, and take responsibility for all that you have experienced, you become liberated to dream your biggest dreams! You become empowered to know that the world is ever expanding and your dreams CAN come true!

Taking responsibility for your actions in your life means understanding that you have created a lot of your experiences by default. When your worst fears become your reality, it’s because you’ve spend so much time focusing with fear, worry, anger, hurt, shame or any other emotion that is rooted in fear. Most of us do create our lives by default…until we learn that it can be another way.

The emotions based in love include feeling content, optimistic, excited, passionate, joyful and, of course, love. When we are feeling those positive emotions, we are in a vibrational level or frequency to attract our dreams and goals.

I have a tool that I’ve developed called the Joyometer, which is a simple scale to check in on your emotions. It’s what I call a mood management system. When you fall into that downward spiral of negative emotions—those based in fear—you are taking a back seat and allowing your life to happen on a reactive basis. When you are in a positive frame of mind—in the emotions coming from love—you are the master of your universe. You make a conscious choice on how to react to situations. You are proactive and aware of your canvas and what you are putting there.

Just as a boat without a rudder will be tossed and turned in the ocean by the waves, living in fear has the same effect. But when you put that rudder down into the water, you can suddenly steer the boat and choose what direction you want to sail. Love is that rudder. One of the definitions of a rudder in the dictionary is “something that guides or directs”. When you choose to live your life coming from a place of love, “miracles” can become common in your life.

It’s time to understand just how powerful we are as individuals and harness that power to create our dream lives!
