Getting More by “Doing” Less

Posted by on August 5, 2013 at 11:19 am

The creative process fascinates me. I enjoy the almost indescribable feeling I get when Source flows through me to deliver an inspired idea. Sometimes an idea is delivered complete and I can barely move my fingers across the keyboard or my pencil across my drawing pad fast enough to capture the download of it. Other [...]

Do You Like the Contrast?

Posted by on July 31, 2013 at 9:59 am

I am a big fan of Abraham-Hicks. I am also a firm believer in the power we all have to create our realities. Part of reality creation, and sometimes it seems a big part of creation, is contrast. You know contrast – those situations that are not what you want. It might be about how [...]
