Long time, no post . . . .

OK, so its been awhile. I have been, well, busy, and yet not busy. I have done a lot of nothing for the last month. Now I am getting back on track and working toward a new goal.

There is a course in May for travel writing in Tuscany and I'm gonna be there! it fits perfectly with my two loves - writing and travel.

I am working on Bob Proctor's 11 Forgottn Law series ~ there is a lot of really great info, plus i received the Silva Life System for free, so Woo Hoo!

Will write more later!~

Ah, the plateau

Sitting this morning, looking out the window as the rain drizzled through our walnut tree, I realized something.

I have now been working on myself consistently for almost 5 months. 5-6 months is usually a plateau point for me where things level off, I get bored, and go off in search of something to keep my mind occupied. This has happened in every job I have ever had. 2 years ago when I really started working on the law of attraction (though I didn't understand the resistance thing then), it was at 5 months that I got a new job, and was so busy with that, that I dropped my work on myself and my future.

I can definitely see the pattern. I have always known that I had a 6 month threshold, but now I think I understand a little more about it - that it affects everything, ~ its not just a job thing~. So, I am going to work on this to get through it. I know I am on the right path and am not about to let a lifetime worth of zig-zags throw me off.

I will work, using the tools I have learned …

Clean Your Home is online!

Its been a few days since i posted, but I have been so busy!

Vastly excited!

My booklets were completed by the printer on Friday and I finished the website - so now I can officially start selling my booklet! YAY!

I kept the price very low, due to the fact that I think this is very important information for people to have. Even I, when I started out into green cleaning, had no idea what actually was in all those store-bought household cleaners - ick! I knew I hated the stench and didn't want to touch them with my bare hands, but I had no idea how toxic they truly are..

I hope this booklet will help others to clean their homes cleaner. I tend to think big - and I just can't help but think that if everyone would use these cleaners, rather than the ones they can buy right off the shelf, that there would be such an upsurge in good health.

Anyway, I don't want to make this a sales pitch (as I don't think that is what this space is for), but if you want to take a look, you can buy…

Something Silly for those who are as tired of this election as I am!

Just a quick blog . . .

Just a quick blog this morning . . .

I am busy, busy, busy today. I had written all the recipes for my cleaning pamphlet and gotten the information together. I am putting it together in readable form today. I've been working at it for over an hour and needed a break.

On Oct 18th there is a wellness / new age fair where I live and I am going to talk to the coordinator today about how much it will cost for a table to have my pamphlet at. Or, (as I know him), if he would be willing to carry it at his booth.

Ya know, the more I have researched for my pamphlet, the more I am appalled at what the cleaning industry has done to us. We ingest a huge amounts of chemicals daily, either through our skin or our nose. As I was researching the chemicals they use in laundry detergents I was sickened to find that Sodium Tripolyphosphate is a prominent chemical they use and it is absorbed through the skin from our clothes! YUCH! Many chemicals they use affect us hormonally - no wonder there are so man…

Back on the Blog again / / / / /

Well, I'm back from WOTS. I'm tired from all the walking I did and all the information that I tried to cram into my head.

With WOTS behind me, I get to concentrate on 2 things: My book getting into print form and moving to Portland.

Today, I got my copyright app done and the ISBN created for the print copy. So, as the book is ready, the only thing I have to wait for is the Library of Congress # which should be here in a week or so. Until that time, I will be focusing on money and Portland.

I am almost complete with the cleaning pamphlet. Its a small pamphlet that will list several "recipes" for simple, clean cleaning supplies. When I complete it, I will have one printed up to figure out price. I am hoping to sell if for the price of everything involved (including shipping for those in the US). Probably $2-$3.

Oct 2 - busy day

Hello, all:)

It's been a busy day. I found a company who could print up my biz cards quickly (and they were also the cheapest in town for a 2-sided card) and I picked them up today. WOW _ they look so good! I mean, I loved the design that I created, but when I had printed them out on my inkjet = all I could think was ewww. But these - They look AMAZING!

Being a trekkie, I jumped on a listing this morning that I found locally on a Mr. Spock plate. It was in perfect, never used condition, still in the original box - how could I resist for $20? So, I have added it to my Star Trek Stuff (can you say star trek geek>) and hope to auction them next Spring when the new movie comes out:)

I have been cleaning my house with natural products I make myself and am thinking about producing one of them as it works so well, and is so safe for humans, their houses, their pets and the environment. Not quite sure how to get there and welcome any ideas anyone has:)

I am mostly ready for the trip tomor…

Happy Oct 1!

Ah, first day of the challenge! Well, my challenge is to move to Portland (as written on My Page), but I am also working on getting my book printed and going to WOTS this weekend.

yesterday I spent most of the day refining my biz/ad card. Now I just need to get it printed. I also got my car stuff done; lube oil/new washers, etc.

Today I will get the card printed (I will find a printer who has time!).

I also need to get a mailbox in Portland and register my Print Name. I need to find out if there are any publishers with this name, but Books In Print won't allow me in without a membership, but I can't register as a publisher till I have my name. Quite the unending circle:)

Tomorrow is probably going to be filled with a lot of "What do I need to take with me?" questions.

Busy!
Busy!
Busy!

Ah I love this!

New Challenge!

As some of you know, I had started a new challenge right after the old one ended. Some odd things were happening in the weeks that followed and I finally asked for some help and through that help came to realize that I was on the wrong path.

So, I have decided to scrap that one - I still love the idea and plan to make it a reality later, but not right now. Many reasons, but one is that most of my speakers were too busy for Fall, plus I think that Jan/Feb would be a better time for this kind of teleconference. I am just not sure if I am going to attack this myself, or work at getting partners to do it.

I was going to wait until Oct 1 to announce my new goal, but no time like the present!

I have wanted to move to Portland, OR for awhile now, and it kept being this "dream" that I was no closer to getting to. Its been on my attraction list since I started writing my 10-10 lists in early August.

So, my goal for the Oct 1 Challenge is to move to Portland! I am very excited. There are …

Change is Coming! - Being Self-Full

`Hello fellow - BLC'ers

Changes are a'comin. On Oct 1 my new image will be up - yeah, I love the smiley too, but new challenge, new image:)

I may go back to the smiley at some point, but I feel the need for a new one:)

I'm already starting some things for my new challenge. Its a big one for 45 days. But - I know I need this community to get me where I want to be by mid-Nov.

Have you ever sat and looked at yourself in the mirror (metaphorically)? I like what I see, but I need to get beyond this need to control how everything happens in my life. I'm such a control freak! LOL I'm getting better at it, but I am looking forward to the time when I can allow the Universe to help me right off, rather than deciding how things should be done and hitting my head against the wall a few times.

For my new challenge, I automatically started making lists and charts. LOL While some of that is relevant, I need to take a step back, and take a deep breath. While some of the stuff I thought…

What a wonderful morning!

Its been several days, but I have been so busy. I have been adding some things to my vision board and removing others.

Plus - yesterday was my mom's birthday and so we had a full day there:) I made her a cake that morning and then we went to a local fair, and it was quite fun. Last year it was boring, but not this year - and I truly think that had to do with where I am mentally. I had a fantastic time!

Yesterday, a workman came to replace the air cleaner that sits next to the central heater. I didn't think of it at the time, but considering where it sits, it must have displaced a whole bunch of spiders. So, they decided to crawl on me last night. Not a fun way to wake up at 1am. But, hopefully the rest will find their way back under the stairs. If not, they will have extremely short lifespans:)

I am so excited to be attending WOTS next week. There are so many amazing classes plus I am sure I will meet some amazing people. An added bonus is that it is a 4-day vacation. WOO HOO! I …

Day 18

Today is the first chance I have had to sit and think today. I spent 3 hours at my hair dresser this morning - long time, but I love the result - so yay!

Then came shopping and mail. So, now I am going to go and meditate on the wonderful reading Lynn did for me yesterday. I wrote down tons of notes last night about the first thoughts that came to me after reading it all. Now, I need to truly look inside and figure things out.

I have a lot of things to think about, including my current goal. I think there is going to be a major shake-up in my life that is so much for the better.

I'll keep ya posted!

Onward and Upward!~

Day 17 lots to think about

(originally posted Sept 21, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)

I've been struggling with stuff lately and today I got two huge inspirations - one was from commenting back and forth with Spiro. The other has slightly blown me away in its clarity.

Lynn did a reading for me today that has me reeling with its clarity. I need to meditate and think much on it.

Thanks Lynn - that was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't have much to say, but much to think about - so I am off to try and quiet my mind.

Have a wonderful evening everyone!

Onward and Upward!~

Day 16 - Fantastic Day

I feel fantastic today. Full of joy and empowerment.

Yesterday I looked at the negativity I was feeling, where it came from, and why it was hanging around. I faced a few things I was dealing with and faced the realization that I may need to change my goal somewhat. I have two different ideas and this week will decide between the two. Either way, I am happy that I realized it was where I was going in my goal that was sending me into a bad mood.

I am continuing to write and work on getting In Search of the Drasta in print, rather than just the e-copy. I am torn between two ideas there. I would prefer the one, but it is more expensive. The other would be good, but not great when it comes to book-signings.

But, I feel good and that is the main thing. The weather has broke and it is a nice drizzly day here in the NorthWest.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!~

Onward and Upward!~

Day 15. More on track

I feel more on track today. Been too muddled for the last week to concentrate.

Today I have tons of things to do.

1. Settle on a teleconference company

2. Start contacting the speakers I sent letters to

3. Finish Designing the website so that I can start building it

4. Write, write, write.....

That should keep me busy.:)

Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Onward and Upward!~

Yesterday was a procrastination day

I didn't particularly notice it yesterday but I completely recognize yesterday as a day of Procrastination! LOL I can feel resistance, and plan to do a major EFT session today.

I found tons of unique ways to do absolutely nothing:) Well, I didn't do nothing, I did work a bit on my novel last night, but I didn't work on my main goal at all. So, today I have several phone calls to make and some website development to do (not my favorite - but I can do it relatively easy). I need to have the site up and running Oct 1 to start registrations.

I woke up at 6am this morning and was surprised at how dark it was. I mean, sure, the light was starting to show, but jeez, its only September. The weather here is about to get extremely nice. Today its 90 (yuck), tomorrow it is 85 (ewww), but by Saturday its supposed to be in the low 70s (better) and by Monday 60s (WOO HOO!) 60s is perfect weather for me. I hope it stays that temp at least through the Central Washington State Fair which sta…

Day 12 - Definitely a nice day

Today was a nice day. I took inventory on my pantry and went and did a Costco run - Always fun - always expensive:)

Summer is battling Fall right now, so we get 48 degrees at night and 95 degree days. Love the nights, looking forward to when the days are in the 60s.

I have been working on my novel today. Tomorrow I will be spending a bit of time on the phone, talking with the companies that I am interested in for hosting the Teleconference series.

The best thing about today? the BBQ! I am a BBQ nut. I have been working at the grill for almost 3 years. I have both a charcoal and gas grill; which I use depending on what I am cooking. The one thing I don't have is a dedicated smoker - will get that after my move to Portland:) I grill everything from ribs to steaks, Smoke tons of meats, and BBQ amazing pork shoulder, pork loin, and beef. My favorite thing to grill is Pineapple! It does something to the chemical makeup of the fruit and it practically melts in your mouth! yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

Day 11 - 25% of the 2nd challenge down - WOW

Time moves so fast:)

I didn't realize that 11 days had already come and gone - I have gotten so much done, and yet still have so much to do.

I have my first speaker. I have finished sending off all the letters to potential speakers.

I have the cover design finished for In Search of the Drasta. I am just waiting to hear back from Create Space before I send it in. I am also waiting for my ISBN. I chose to purchase my own rather than take the free one they offered. That way, when I choose to either go with a different publisher or self-publish, I can keep the same ISBN.

I wrote a little in my new novel yesterday. Hope to write more today, but am feeling writer's block at the moment, so . . . . . . .

Onward and Upward!~

Day 10

This has been a nice day.

I purposefully took time away from my challenge today - for some rest & relaxation. I exercised and tried to just day dream, but instead my mind went over my new novel. LOL I really do need to get a recording device so when these things hit me I can record them right away. It would be faster than trying to write with my hen scratches.

Tomorrow, I send out the rest of the speaker invites. I've narrowed down the companies I will be using for the teleconference to 3. There is a company out there that allows it for free, but only up to 96 people. Way too few for what I am planning:)

Besides novel "thinking" I also set about shortening several pairs of pants. At 5'0", it is rare that I can find clothes I don't have to shorten. So, I usually buy the pants and let them sit, but this time I couldn't do that. WOTS (Writers of the Sound) conference is coming up soon and I plan on taking my new clothes - the ones that aren't baggy - w…

Day 9

(originally posted Sept 13, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well,. I spoke today with one of the speakers I want for my Teleconference series. I think he has great information to help people who are working to make their lives better.

It was the first time I was speaking about the conference out loud to a potential speaker, He did fine, I think I sounded ok - I coulda' sounded better, I will work on that:)

Came across some resistance today as I can see my goal going forward. So, I am tap, tap, tapping away at it.

I also completed the cover for the print version of In Search of the Drasta. Now I just have to wait until I can talk to one of the publication service people to make sure I have everything in the correct format before i send it all in.

Short blog today. But that works:)

Onward and Upward !~

Day 8 - Resistance came and was conquered!

Hello everyone:)

Well for the first time in weeks, resistance came up like crazy today! It all started out this morning when something happened that made me feel betrayed by someone I knew. Well, "knew" isn't the correct term, more like acquainted with.

Anyway, I am so happy with how I handled it. In the past, it would have sent me into a depression and probably would have killed my goals. (no probably about it - it would have) But this time, I looked at it and thought "No, I am not going to let old patterns ruin my happiness." So, I did my 10-10 list and felt much better, though there was still some residual annoyance. So, I set about doing a full round of EFT. It took about 3 minutes to rid myself of the negative feelings, and another one to truly feel positive and happy again.

I can't tell you how wonderful that is! From someone who used to let this kind of stuff eat at me and eat at me until I was down in the dumps, I now have ways to overcome them! WOO HO…

Day 7 - Had an immediate LOA attraction today!

OK - this has never happened before - or I just never noticed it.

I have been wanting to move away from plastic bottles, get a water purifying system and go that route. Only thing was, I didn't know what kind of bottle I was going to replace the plastic ones with.

This morning I made a conscious thought that I wanted a water bottle that would be clean, would be easy to clean, and be good for the environment. WHAM! Mail came - and in it were two, and only two items. Both were catalogs - one from IsabellaCatalog.com and the other from LL Bean, Both included a new stainless steel, food grade water bottle! I am thrilled! I have now ordered two of the bottles from Isabella and am very excited for them to get here.

Day 6 - 2nd challenge

Got quite a bit done this morning!

I wrote my overview for the 6-part series, This morning I realized that what I was going for wasn't a "teleseminar" in the way they are advertised online. Thus I have decided to call it a Teleconference. It will be just like going to a conference to hear amazing people speak about their experiences with making a better life, except

1. you don't have to leave your home
and
2. It costs a LOT less.

And yet, you will still be able to hear their experiences and pick up wonderful ideas you can put into your own lives.

I also created a draft of the letters I will be sending out to the speakers I would really like to have as part of my series. And I have set aside dates for each conference.

I have a full list of speakers I will be contacting, but I also would like to have several people from the BLC who would like to speak about their experiences for one of the Conference sessions.

I would type more, but I suddenly have a puppy asleep on my chest. …

6146

At this moment, there are 6,146 members of this challenge - that is SO amazing! Last week I noticed there were around 5900 and I think its great we already have 200 more! Welcome Welcome!!!!

I think the BLC has taken on a life of its own in a way. Bob Doyle opened the door, And we have truly explored ourselves in an amazing light.

(ewww, did I just write that? Sounds way too sappy for me;))

Anyway, This new 45 days is so exciting and I am surprised at the leaps and bounds I have made already!

To paraphrase my favorite Borg:

"May each of you reach all of your goals, except for one. So that you always have something to shoot for"

I love Vermont!

(Originally posted Sept 9, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
I have to say - I love the state of Vermont. I have never been there, nor have i ever met anyone from there, but I think Vermont is one amazing state.

For several years now there has been a movement to Free Vermont. They want to secede from the Union. I say any state that has such amazing chutzpah, has my vote. I love it - If it weren't for the fact they get dang cold and the fact they are on the other side of the US - I would want to move there!

I love people that have their own voice - probably the same reason I love Portland, OR, the greenest city in the US, and 3rd greenest in the world!

Day 5 - Slow but steady

(originally posted Sept 9, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)

Well, its Tuesday, day 5, and I don't feel as though I have done much yet today. I know its only 1pm, but usually I have a tremendous amount done by now.

I did my exercise and 10-10- list. I also found all sorts of MP3 cds I have of different LOA talks.

I got to the point yesterday in my new novel where I had to start transcribing it into the computer. I was looking back over what I had wrote and realized that some of my writing was so hideous that I could barely tell what it said - LOL. The faster I write to keep up with my thoughts, the worse it gets. Plus, when it is completely into my external drive, I will start writing there, rather than on paper. It will go quicker as I won't be doing double duty, but I do miss pen to paper:)

I made a list yesterday of 30+ individuals I will be contacting for my 6-week "Have Your Best Life" series. I am hoping to get 8-10 positive responses. That way, I have a few backups…

Day 4 - What a wonderful day!

OK, Day 4 of Challenge #2.

I am so on fire. Yesterday I wrote for 3 hours. The time went so fast. The only reason I ended up stopping was that my wrists were hurting:) I got my calendar (and suitably enough, its a Dragon calendar!). I started writing down importand dates and when I need ot have things completed. It helped me to realize that Oct 16th, which was going to be the first day of my 6-part series, is only 2 days after the full moon. Considering how the Full Moon affects me, I don't think that is a good idea. SO, I need to either pre-record the 1st one and play it that night, OR move the date. I will have to think on that.

Today has been wonderful so far! I got up and immediately wrote and sent my 10-10 list to Betsy, my 10-10 list bud:) I went to the gym for the first time in a week. It felt good to get back on the treadmill. I was only able to go 8 minutes before my back started to twinge, but its getting better - that is the point:)

After lunch, I am going to do my researc…

Day 3 of my 2nd Challenge

Well, I feel so good today. I completed my 10-10 list this morning but still need to do my couple rounds of EFT (definitely a part of my daily routine).

I am going to be hunting for a calendar today so that I can write down all of my important dates and "What's due" so that I can stay on track. So much to so - so excited for the next 6 weeks!

I have been thinking allot about the 6-week series that is my main goal for this challenge and have come up with some amazing ideas. Tomorrow I will probably be spending 4-5 hours on total research and planning. Today, I will be putting the things in place so I can just GO FORWARD!

Yesterday I didn't get any writing done. I thought about the story line and it played itself over and over again in my brain. I need to get an audio recorder and have it with me so that when these things hit me, I can just record them right then!

This afternoon, I have set aside time to write. (Which I need to do on purpose every day).

I have had so much f…

My new Vision Board

Hello fellow-Challengers:)

I made a vision board for the first challenge that I have laying next to my bed so I can look at it a lot. For this challenge, I decided it was time for me to actually post a video - GASP*!

So, I created this online vision board - I plan on viewing it twice a day to keep the visuals strong in my brain.

Lets goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

(The vision board was too large to post here. I have uploaded it at the Boundless Living Challenge.

New day, new challenge, new goals

Sept 5th - wow, so much has happened and I am so pumped up for the next 45 days.

This is the first day of my 2nd 45-day Revolving Boundless Living Challenge (Sept 5- Oct 20)

I am carrying over the goal from my 1st challenge (to bring in over $1,000/day. But it is a sub-goal that will go well with some of my other items.

I have two large goals for the next 45 days. I will be posting both here and on the Boundless Living Challenge website. Probably more here at first due to the fact that the BLC is going through a hectic "end-of-challenge" thing at the moment.

My Goals for the next 45 days:

A new day, a new challenge . . .

Well, today is Sept 5th - and I feel fantastic!

Today is the first day of my new 45-day challenge. For those who are reading this for the first time, I was part of a 45-day Boundless Living Challenge that went from July 21-Sept 4. The amount of change that happened to me is AMAZING! Look at my post Day 45 - Final post for 1st 45-day challenge .

I end up copying the posts from the BLC to here, as I haven't gotten around to posting to two blogs yet - but I hope to change that this time!

I have 2 goals for this challenge. I will be posting my official goals this evening.

I am so excited that I was able to get my novel completed and up online before the end of the first challenge. You can read the first chapter by going to My WebSite.

If you have ever wanted to reach a goal, that you thought was unatainable. Or to change your life in an amazing way - the 45 day challenge is for you!

Day 45 - Final post for 1st 45-day challenge

(Originally posted Sept 3, 3008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well, its Day 45.

45 days ago, I would have thought this would take awhile, but suddenly here it is. This time has sped by so fast - and so much has happened!

It took me a few days to figure out a goal, and without a concrete one to pick, I chose making $1,000/day.

I would have to say that this challenge was split into 3 - 2 week sections for me. I have tried my whole life to have a better one, but it kept avoiding me. When I learned about the Law of Attraction, it made total sense to me. I could see how I had attracted all those bad experiences and all the negativity. How many times had I said "Well, I don't know what I want, but I do know what I don't want." Well, DUH!

Sept 1

(Originally posted Sept 1, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Its been a nice day today. I slow-cooked a pork shoulder (mmmmmmm Pulled Pork Sandwiches), and have worked on my 10-10 list.

I notice I am having to keep my eye on the end of this challenge, as my mind is already straying onto my next challenge, starting Sept 5. While I have not got to my "making $1000/day" yet, though it is coming, I feel that in many ways I have received even greater gifts.

Ahh, the wonder of life!

. . . and wonderful it is!

August 31

Wow, its already the 31st of August - Time does fly.
8 months of the year have gone bye-bye
42 days of the 45 day challenge has as well.

And yet, so much has happened! This has been an amazing time in my life, as I am sure it has in many others as well.

Who could have guessed that so much could happen in such a short amount of time?

People meeting their goals
People making MAJOR changes in their lives
People ridding themselves of resitance

This is amazing!

As I sit here on a lazy Sunday morning, it all seems to wonderful. Fall weather has arrived with 70-degree days and 40-degree nights. (not that my dog is too happy about it - LOL the poor lil guy is freezing! So I wrap him up in blankets all the time)

I am so excited about what the next 45 days will bring. I am going to keep up what I am doing. On Thursday (Sept 4) I am going to create a new MAJOR goal to work toward. Looking at how my life has changed in the last 42 days, if I could …

Day 39 - WOW this is going so fast!

I can't believe its day 39! wow - that is so amazing! I definitely see this challenge in waves (I will post more of that on my final blog post on the 4th:).

It has been so amazing and so eye-opening. And I am SO excited that I have my book ready! I am offering the first chapter for free for anyone - so you can get a taste of my writing style. Feel free to sign up for it! (you can read more on My Page.

My Book!

(Originally posted Aug 29, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
OK -I am so excited. With the umph I received from this challenge, I finished my first Sci-Fi / Fantasy novel titled In Search of the Drasta. I am so excited to have it finished. Over the last couple weeks I have been researching vanity and self-publishing options. After much back-and-forth motion, I have decided to offer my book in e-format only at this time. Maybe after my second or third book comes out, I will put this one in paper form, but for now, I am very excited to offer it for sale in PDF format!

I don't know about all of you, but I hate to buy a book from an author I have never heard of without either hearing reviews or knowing their writing style. So, I have decided to give everyone a chance to read a chapter free! Then, if they like what they read, they can purchase it.

Before I go mainstream with this, I would like to offer it to members of The Boundless Living Challenge first. You can sign up for the first cha…

Day - 35; releasing the first chapter soon!

Wow - Day 35. Can't believe there is only 10 days left in the challenge:)

I have been super busy lately working on a plan. I have decided to give away the first chapter of my book. Then, if people like it, they can buy the E-book via a link at the end of the chapter. Also, it will allow me to gain a list of people who want to read my stuff. I plan to update them with information on new releases, book signings (when I have them), as well as send them more of my writings.

I am feeling like I am on the right track with this one. (OK, I almost wrote "write track", but didn't know if that would get laughs, boos, or messages about typos! LOL:)

I hope to have all the pieces in place by either the end of today or by tomorrow. I will be posting a link to get the first chapter for anyone who is interested here:) I would love to hear some feedback on it:)

Anyway, quick post. I am worn out. The last few days have been good, but I am kind of at the end of my rope. I am puppy sitting. He is a 10-month old and even though he only weighs 6 pounds, he is a lot to take care of. Combined with him are the other two dogs and all three of them are now testing my patience!

The pup loves to bark - and his bark is so loud and shrill - could kill your eardrums. He won't shut up! Nor will he calm down. And he refuses to learn the word No. I feel bad about putting him in his crate too much, but the lil brat is driving me nuts! I haven't gotten ANYTHING done that I was planning to do this week. I haven't been able to write, I haven't been able to work on my business. I keep exploding at him and the others when they won't listen. Now, I am so close to tears I am about to lose it.

I don't want to be putting this kind of emotio…

Day - I've stopped counting!

I haven't been here for the last few days - I have been taking it a little easier. I am still focused on my goal, but am going about things with a less-harried attitude.

All-in-all the last couple of days have been quite nice. I have some nice tools to help me go forward and I am really liking the way I feel.

I hope everyone else is doing well in their life!

Day 28 -ugh its early

(Originally posted Aug 16, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well, its day 28 - I haven't blogged in 3 days, but then again, there hasn't been anything to report. Right now its 7:02 am on a Saturday morning and I have been up most of the night with nightmares. I read Twilight yesterday by Shannon Meyers and I kept being attacked by Vampires all night! LOL Good book, but EEK! (I have a very low tolerance for Horror)

I'm keeping up my 10-10 list and doing a couple EFT sessions a day. Right now I am just trying to get through the Full Moon cycle. I am one of those that is severely affected by the cycles of the moon, and the Full Moon is the worst!

If I remember correctly, there was a partial moon eclipse today and someone had pointed out that the eclipse tends to bring about change. I am very open to whatever change is coming. Change is good.

Day 25 - A Writing We Will Go

(Originally posted Aug 13, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well, yesterday's de-cluttering brought to me a magazine I wanted to find. I knew I had it, I just wasn't sure where it was,

It listed a whole bunch of Agent's who will accept new authors and so I have been going through their websites today.

Long story short - I have signed up for a writer's workshop here in Washington that is in about 6 weeks. It has a tremendous amount of great information and I am excited to go. Anything I can use to make me a better author and to put me in contact with the industry - I can work with:)

Put one foot in front of the other, and soon you'll be walking across the flo-o-or!

Day 24 - Good day

(Originally posted Aug 12, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well, today has been a good day. I realized I needed to be a little more balanced in what I was doing. I was giving all of my attention to my goal and to getting rid of resistance, and I think it was making me off center.

So, I exercised, read, finished de-cluttering my room (as well as cleaned it), and this evening I am watching You Can Heal Your Life again. Watching the movie reminds me of why I purchased Louise Hay's book in June and how far I have come. This is remarkable ~ that I have made so many changes and made so many leaps in just 2 months.

I am going to pick up my affirmations that I did from June through July again. They were what started me off and really got me going. I am going to keep up my EFT and 10-10 list. Besides that, I am going to just work on my goals and see where they take me, hopefully with a little more balance.

I look forward to a time when I can feel this calm on a more constant basis. Yes, being…

Day 23 - Emotionless

(Originally posted Aug 11, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well, this morning I realized what was happening to me. It is a behavior I created as a child so that outside sources wouldn't hurt me (which of course, didn't really work, I just didn't feel the emotion at the time). Problem is - they came back.

I was trying to do my 10-10 list and it took almost 15 minutes to come up with 3 things I was grateful for. While I was writing the 3rd one, I realized I was not feeling any emotion to what I was writing. That was when it hit me; that I was being emotionless, and this was not the state I wanted to be in. To tap out negative emotions, you are supposed to feel them. If you can't feel, hows that gonna work?, I thought.

So, I decided to tap on having no emotion, which led to tapping on why I had no emotion, which led to what having no emotion was doing to me, which led to the fact that it was taking me down a path I no longer needed to go, which led me to the thought that if…

Resistance to EFT?

(Originally posted Aug 10, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Well, There is still some deep resistance I am not getting rid of. It is causing major resistance to doing my EFT and my 10-10 list. Once I do it, I feel so much better. I tap on whatever thoughts come up, and it seems to nullify whatever is causing the problem at the moment.

But all day today, whenever I would think "I need to tap now" I would get side-tracked or just think "Oh in a few minutes" then forget about it.

Tonight I tapped on heading backward, on losing the lead I was getting, on hitting one bump in the road and receding, and it has helped, but I need to find out what big thing is feeding this resistance.

Maybe I will try tapping on getting side-tracked, it seems to be happening allot today and see what comes up..

Day 22 - Listless

(Originally posted Aug 10, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
Today I am feeling pretty listless. While there are some physical factors going on, I think my brain is tired :)

I spent yesterday morning doing avid research on the publisher who wants to publish my book, and I don't like what I have found. They sound like a bad company to be dealing with. Lots of postings of "doesn't pay royalties" and "prices retail too high, with only a 5% difference between wholesale/retail". Plus, I went up to Amazon.com - they don't carry PA's books. Borders doesn't carry PA's books. So, I don't think I am going to be signing that contract.

I am thankful this all came as I am going to get my book published, but I am going to really work on how. I don't like the idea of a vanity publisher as it is really hard to get your book into bookstores that way (no returns policy). I am considering self-publishing, but will need the $10,000 to get 5000 copies printe…

Its been a few days - but much has happened!

The last couple days have been crazy!

On Tuesday, PA asked me to see my full manuscript. They let me know it would take a couple weeks to review it.

On Thursday, 2 days after I submitted my manuscript, I got my acceptance letter. WOO HOO! I can hardly believe it. Well, actually I can believe it - LOL. I am taking this weekend to go over the contract and make notes. On Monday I hope to have a paralegal go over it for me and explain the legalese.

Once the contract is signed, the book goes into publication! I am so excited. Once that starts, I am going to start my marketing plan. There are a lot of resources on marketing your book, and I want to work hand-in-hand with my publisher to make this a best seller.

The Universe truly has no time constraints - it can make things happen quickly when you are on the right frequency - and I am working on staying on that frequency, though it doesn't feel like work. In fact the 'work' makes me feel fantastic!

Coming to a bookstore near you . . …

Huge step for me

Well, I took a huge step. With all this work I have been doing on getting rid of my resistance and working toward a much larger goal, I have also been inspired to do several things - one of those was to finish a book I have been writing for 5 years.

Its a Sci-Fi novel that I pick up every few months, write some, and then hit a block and put it back on the shelf. Well, I have finished it!

Not only have I finished it, I edited it and put everything in chapters. Whew! Not only that - but I have submitted it for publication through Publish America.

WOW! I feel like I have done months worth of stuff - but only in a few days! Its amazing what can happen when you get in the correct vibration with the Universe.

I will keep this updated with my progress to publication.

Onward and Upward!

Optimism vs Pessimism

I heard a commercial on the radio a couple days ago that has stuck with me.

It is a conversation between Two people

Person 1: "Hey, let's go full time with the business!"

Person 2: "We don't have any clients"

Person 1: "PacificCorp said they want to sign with us"

Person 2: "We don't have an office."

Person 1: "We can work from home and take it off our taxes"

Person 2: "We don't have any employees"

Person 1: "We have our spouses" . .

Question we all need to ask ourselves - Are we Person #1 or Person #2?

Ever since I heard the ad, I have not been able to get it off my mind. I'm not Person #2 anymore - I definitely used to be that years ago. But, I am not sure I am Person #1 yet. I think I am somewhere in between.

What I like about Person #1 is that not only are they positive, but quick witted as well - I would like to be able to do that - Have an idea and be able to spot the positive idea in every challenge. …

EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques

What is EFT?
The official EFT website says that EFT is "an emotional version of acupuncture, except needles are not necessary. Instead, you stimulate well-established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips."
I had never heard of EFT before I started the Boundless Living Challenge. And yet, I will never be the same because of it. It allows for the releasing of negative energy. It is, in effect, another form of energy healing, like your Chakras or Theta Healing. They say, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” This is the way to clean out those disruptions.
The actual process of EFT is simple – you tap on certain energy centers of the body while repeating certain negative emotions or memories you have, thus getting rid of the disruptions.
Does it work? Yes.
Is it a bit weird? Yes. LOL At least if done in public. You might feel strange the first couple time you do it, but it becomes second nature after a…

Lucky Day 13:)

Wow - 13th day of the challenge. Must be lucky day 13? Years ago, I got tired of everybody making the number 13 out to be unlucky, so I purposefully focused on it being lucky:)
I got about 2 hours of sleep last night. Not due to anything bad, but due to excitement. I could not shut my brain off. LOL

I got a great idea about 10 pm last night and when I found myself awake at 1am still from thinking about it, I decided I might as well get up. I am going to be looking at it today and making a list of things I need to do on my side to make it a reality. Then leave the rest of it in the Universe's hands.

Whereas 2 days ago I felt spent and worried, today I feel the exact opposite! I am so on fire!

Even my horoscope knew it -

You need to think about the future today -- you're doing a great job of leaving the past behind and your mind is more concerned with planning and ambition than it is with anything else

Spot on, huh?

Well, that is all for now - Onward and upward everyone:)

Day 12 - At peace

( Originally posted July 31, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
First let me thank everyone who has offered encouragement and help in my little perfection issue. I was such at an impervious wall, and now I have so many "helps". I feel at peace.

I took Amy Jo's advice and filled out the Radical Worksheet and it was interesting as I went through what I was feeling about those events years ago, and then, for the first time I actually thought of what I knew about her (my grandmother's ) life. I was able to truly look at what her life was like and how she was a product of her own upbringing. I had "forgiven" her years ago, but I don"t think fully. It wasn"t until this time while I was writing about her life that I truly felt sorry for her. She was the product of her time and of her family. She didn"t have the chance like I do to overcome all of it.

The fact that I just called her my grandmother - I haven't called her that for years. She had always…

Day 12 - Found major resistance

( Originally posted July 31, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Well, yesterday (Day 11) I came across some major resistance. It is an issue I have had all my life, and yesterday it hit really hard. I was really tired, and it came up while I was doing EFT.
I have this intense need to be perfect. If I'm not perfect it truly throws me off - actually it destroys me. When I started the tapping, I immediately lost it. You could say that on a scale of 0-10, my reaction was a 20. I tapped 3 times and got it down to a 15. I changed the wording a little bit, but that is where it stayed. I need to get this resistance down, I'm just not sure what words I need to use. After getting the feeling down a tiny bit, I tried some positive tapping to see if that could help, but when I tried to tap "It is ok if I'm not perfect", all I heard was "Oh NO IT'S NOT!"

Now, I know where this issue comes from. I know who started it and why its there. I had this issue crammed into m…

Day 11 - Panic Attack

( Originally posted July 30, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
OK day 11 - 1/4 of the way through.

Time to take stock in where I am at. I am keeping up my EFT. I notice I am struggling with forgetting my 10-10 list, but i remember at some point during the day.

Last night I had a setback. I was trying to get to sleep, when suddenly some thoughts entered my head that I didn't want.

There is a job that I sent in a resume for quite awhile ago, that is interested in me. Problem is - I am no longer interested in them. Through EFT I have been able to recognize some of my barrier techniques and one came up like a shot last night. Usually, just when I am about to go after a goal that I truly want, I will kind of freak out and take a job in the web/software development field. It always turns out the same way. Yeah - I make good money, but I end up unhappy and hating the job. I have been in the web/software development field for over 10 years, not because I like it - but because I am good at it …

Revelation

( Originally posted July 29, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Hopefully this will make sense to someone else reading this, but I had such a revelation last night. I was listening to the MP3 Attracting Abundance through EFT book and it got to one section (don't remember which one at the moment) and suddenly a thought came into my brain that kind of blew me away.

Brief history:

I have tried to go to college several times in my life. I didn't want to go. I find college boring for the most part, and annoying because of the classes you have to take that I can't stand. A straight-A student in high school, my path has always been toward alternative ways of learning. I received a blessing when I was younger saying I would always learn through alternative paths. My horoscope is always saying I will find different ways to learn all my life.

I think I have tried to go to school about 6 times. The first two, I made it through one semester before I pulled out. The others ~ well I made it …

Day 9 - Evening

( Originally posted July 28, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Well, I was right. Today was incredibly busy. LOL
I did so much, and have to remind myself of that, because it doesn't feel as though I have gotten very far. I know that most of what I was learning today was where not to go for what I was looking for. And that is a lesson in and of itself.

Today did rush by though. With everything I was doing combined with a sick lilttle puppy (he was sneezing and couldn't stop - turned out he was allergic to the dust in the backyard - oh goodie), today truly rushed by. I forgot a call I was supposed to make at 6pm tonight due to the pup issue. But then again - was it forgetting - or purposeful blocking out something I don't think is truly worthwhile?

I am looking forward to tomorrow - I have a list of things I want to do and can't wait to get to it:)

Day 9 - Morning

( Originally posted July 28, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Wow - I have so much to do today. Its gonna be full!
Besides working on my challenge and writing, which I feel very inspired to do suddenly, I have been thinking over the past few days about how this kind of thinking could affect teenagers.

I live in an area full of tiny communities: some are wealthy, most are farming. So many of the teenagers don't seem to have goals.

Anyway, for some reason I decided to visit Bob Proctor's website. (Bob Proctor from the secret) He has a site called Goal33 that is specifically aimed at teenagers. I'm going to look through it. I would like to develop some sort of program for the youth in my area to help them to see a positive future.

Well, off to start my day . . . .

Day 8

( Originally posted July 27, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Hello World:)

Today I took things a little easier - gave myself a break before the big push this week. Its been nice, but I am so ready to go to the next step.

I did my 10-10 list this morning and instead of the second list being a "Things I want to attract" list, I titled it the "Things I have attracted list" due to the fact that I am working to assure my vibration says I already have these things rather than that I want them sometime in the future.

I purchased Carol Look's Attracting Abundance using EFTe-Book and MP3s a day or so ago and am listening to them. Its a wonderful way to work through all this, plus it gives some good "games" to help keep me on track. I plan on putting my earphones on in a few minutes and working through a few issues:)

I feel so comfortable with who I am at the moment: this happy, comfortable woman. I'm surprised I am so comfortable. Considering all the work I h…

Day 7

( Originally posted July 26, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Wow - am I sure it has only been one week? I am so different today than I was 7 days ago.
EFT has been an amazing gift and through it I am conquering so many barriers. I am glowingly happy and loving it:) I find myself craving going to the gym again and have gone for 3 days in a row. I am loving it and have gotten up to 45 minutes between the elliptical and the treadmill.

Today I let my mind focus on my vision board. I added a few things to it and feel them coming true. I feel like I already have two of the items on my vision board. Its amazing.

I let myself look at tours online today. I have always wanted to travel to Greece, and it is one of the things on my vision board. I have contacted a couple tour groups asking for more information.

Well, that is about it for today:)

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel so GOOD

( Originally posted July 26, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
OK - I have now been tapping for 6 days. Some days I struggled as different emotions came up - but one great thing that has come out of this is I actually sleep at night - what a concept! My insomnia seems to be deteriorating.
As I have been going through, I kept thinking of one thing the person who created EFT said, that the emotions we are going through and nullifying can be like a forest. As you get rid of each one, you don't really feel much until suddenly WHAM! the forest collapses and you can really feel the difference.

Tonight I tapped on the subject of sabotage. By the end of the tapping, I had the biggest grin on my face. That was an hour ago, and its still there! LOL I feel so good and so alive.

Life is wonderful!

Day 6

( Originally posted July 25, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Today has been a laid-back day. I did some research (including looking into the domain name(s) I am interested in and finding out that some of them are now considered "premium domain names" and they want to charge an arm and a leg for them - sometimes domain registrars really annoy me).
I did more research into the idea that hit me a couple days ago, trying to figure out what I can do with it. It has promise, I am just trying to figure out where to go from here.

This is much shorter than my other posts, but quite honestly I don't have much to state today:)

Have a great Friday evening:)

When stuff hits you . . .

( Originally posted July 24, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Sometimes what you need is sitting in front of you, but you don't know it because you can't see it. What I am referring to is an answer to a couple questions that have been known to go through my head from time to time about the Law of Attraction. I love "What the Bleep Do We Know?" and "The Secret" because I count those two moves as making a very decisive change in my life. But certain understanding stood just out of reach for me as I have learned more about it - that is until tonight.
I was on a call that Bob Doyle, Rich German, and Marie Diamond did to launch Rich's new book about the Law of Attraction. On it, there were several people who's stories contribute to the book. As they discussed them, some of my answers were answered.

*. I could never figure out how we were supposed to act as though whatever we wanted was here even though it hadn't manifested itself yet. I can see for a s…

Day 5 - Decluttering

Well, I woke up this morning feeling great - at 5 am. Then, by 7am, I was exhausted and went back to sleep until 10:45. But, when I got up I went and exercised for the first time in months. MAN it felt good. I have been steadily losing weight for the last few of weeks, but until now the desire to go to the gym hadn't surfaced. Instead, I just lost interest in snacking (whoa to the Lay's Stax BBQ chips - they used to be my favorite snack food) and instead eat smaller meals.

Last night, before I went to bed, I had an amazing moment of clarity and between 5-7 this morning, I researched my idea. It has some interesting factors I am going to keep looking at. But, I keep saying my goal "I will make more than $1000/day by Sept 4." I don't know quite what opportunity I need to do to reach that goal, but I am acting on ideas that come to me and am very excited to see where they go. I used to want to take on the job of the Universe and do it all, but feel content at the mom…

Day 4

( Originally posted July 23, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
I'm tired.
Last night I did not get much sleep due to a sick dog. My mind won't quiet down long enough to get any rest.

I got so frustrated that I stopped doing anything today. I have worked on resistance this afternoon, but it seems that every time I get through one barrier, tons of others enforce themselves. I didn't expect it to be super quick, but I can see why I have never succeeded before. Jeez I have tons of stuff in my sub-conscious.

I am sure that the resistance will be short lived and within a few days I will be back to my vibrant self, but at the moment, it seems interminable.

I started to work on one of my websites this morning and all I felt was frustration and anger.

Sorry for the down post, but I just can't seem to feel "up" at all.

Well, Here I go. . . .

( Originally posted July 22, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
OK, I feel as though my body is shaking as I write this. I have my goal. (Can you hear my teeth chatter? LOL)

I have been trying to figure out which goal I wanted to concentrate on, and it was between a few things. This morning, I went to check out a school nearby, with the thought of finally heading toward my degree. But, while I drove there, while talking with the recruiter, and while walking around the campus, I felt nothing, absolutely nothing. I realize it is just not my passion right now. It may be at some point, but not now.

So, I have decided to work on a very specific goal for the next 45 days.

By Sept 4th, I will be making at least $1,000 a day.

I'm a web developer/interactive marketing specialist and have been for over 10 years, but up till now shot myself in the foot every time I tried to gain a foothold online. I've contracted with some major international corporations, but never seemed to get beyond making…

Day 2

( Originally posted July 21, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge )
Well,. its the end of day 2 and much has happened in two days - LOL. I am finding out some amazing things that have blocked me in the past that EFT is slowly getting rid of.

I am still listening to the EFT MP3s and getting through some stuff. I am definitely focusing more on one passion than any other. Tomorrow morning I have an appointment to look more into this "dream","goal", or whatever it might be. If I feel it as strongly tomorrow as I do now, I believe that will become my 45-day challenge.

Well, that is about all for today. Its been a very long one - but productive as well.

What a ride so far!

(originally posted July 20, 2008 Boundless Living Challenge)
So far this has been quite the wild ride - ok so I know the official challenge just started today, but the whole last month has been amazing for me.

I have been doing affirmations for 12 years. I went from being an extremely negative individual who was 99% negative, 1% neutral - to a person who was positive 80% of the time. I learned about the Law of Attraction 1.5 years ago and it was a mind-blowing experience as I realized why I was getting what I did not want. By May of this year, I knew I was ready to take the next step in my evolution, but didn't know where. Eckhart Tolle's book was too droll for me. I tried reading it three times and it kept putting me to sleep.

Then, by accident, I came across Louise Hay's "You Can Heal Your Life". Since then, so much has gone on. While I have been mostly positive, not with the extent to which I have been since I started reading her book. On July 8th, I went into my…

Blog, Blog, Blog

OK, I will admit it - until 2 weeks ago, I had never really blogged. But, I have so much information out there to blog about, and as I am in a 45-day challenge to reach a very large goal, I have found I like blogging:)

Several of the posts here will look like they were all done on the same day. Actually, I have been blogging on a social network and am pasting those into this blog. From now on, I will continue to post here as well as there.

The Law of Attraction truly works. Through my blogs, I am going to show you my experiences, both the good and the bad - from the resistance that comes up when I try for new heights to the interesting helps that abound online to help all of us.  I hope you will enjoy this ride with me.
