When I visited Scottsdale, Arizona, I was blessed to meet, Phillip Payne, an artist and owner of the Anticus gallery. Here is what he said about passion, challenges and art. Enjoy!
Phillip started sculpting when he was 14 and opened his first gallery when he was 19. He is a big believer in art because it makes us stronger and more impactful as human beings.
He says, “To create art is to bare your soul in the hopes you will find a kindred spirit in the hearts of someone else.”
You can create anything whether it is a business or art or a connection. We do this by being vulnerable, honest and looking for what your gifts are so you can give them to the public.
Use your gifts not to become rich and famous, but how it can serve a need in the community.
He has manifested many of his dreams on his bucket list because as he states, “I say it out loud, live it proud and really give it everything I have every day.”
He has experienced challenges in his...
Ask and ye shall receive is such a popular phrase. That is what we are going to do this week. Our next manifesting experiment is going to be asking for a specific concrete answer.
Watch the video to learn how to ask concrete questions so the Universe can bring us what we desire.
We have to be very careful for what we ask for.
I had a client that said she REALLY wanted to start her own business. Within four hours, she got laid off.
This was a great opportunity to start living her dream immediately.
This is also why we need to be exact when asking the Universe for what we would love.
For the next 48 hour experiment, you will think of a concrete, exact answer you would love to have an answer to.
When I did this experiment, I was struggling financially and was worried about how to pay off my debt. I needed to know if I should consolidate my credit cards or get a loan from the bank.
I asked the Universe which option I should choose.
When driving home from church, I passed a...
What we focus on expands especially when we give it lots of energy and know in our hearts it has already manifested we just haven’t seen it in form.
Our biggest block to manifesting quickly is negative thoughts.
Watch the video to remove that block and how to do our next fun experiment.
When we begin to focus on what we would love, we have full motivation and energy, but when it doesn’t happen fast enough we start telling ourselves, “This is never going to work. This will not come into my life.”
This blocks the energy of manifesting.
Give yourself the opportunity to stay away from negativity and doubt and have faith that the Universe will provide.
For our next experiment, you will place your intent on getting an answer to a question or manifesting a material item.
Keep it small so it can seem more obtainable to your subconscious.
I asked the question of when I should leave for Hawaii and was told in four different ways the exact dates.
My friend asked if for...
Today we are going to prove that our energetic vibration will get us what we would love to have in our life.
The next experiment is called the Volkswagen Jetta Principle which shows us that the answers are always there, but often we don’t see them.
We overlook countless amounts of information every day.
When you go into a store there are thousands of items, but we focus on what we need to get and overlook everything else in the store.
When my daughter had a canker sore, I went to the toothbrush isle that I had visited many times to look for something to relieve her pain. On the top shelf was a mouthwash that worked wonders in healing the canker sore.
It was ALWAYS THERE. I just had not NOTICED it because I had never looked for it before.
For our next experiment of 48 hours, we will set our intent on noticing what is in our environment.
On day one, pick a specific color car that is unusual. Keep your eye out for how many you see.
I picked the color light blue that I...
The next few weeks are going to be SO MUCH FUN. We will be doing experiments to help us realize our energetic force and the power we truly have within us to create.
Watch this video to learn about your Field of Potentiality when it comes to manifesting what you would love to come into your life.
Pam Grout states, “The Field of Potential (God, Universe, our Higher Power) is not a person, therefore you cannot bug him. The Field of Potential is a power, an unseen energetic force. It isn’t finite or limited. You can certainly ask as much of it as you would like.
We need to think of God more like we think of electricity. Electricity doesn’t care who plugs in a curling iron and doesn’t need proof we are good enough to make it work.”
This week’s experiment will take 48 hours because we want to give the Universe a specific time to give us what we would love to know or manifest.
The experiment will be to ask for a UNIQUE UNEXPECTED BLESSING.
Transformation happens within us.
This meditation is a beautiful reminder of our limitless possibilities.
Find a comfortable, quiet place to sit to listen to one of my favorite guided meditations by Michael Gott.
Our life is continually changing like the seasons throughout the year, but the center of who we are remains the same.
This is our connection to the Universe who is all loving and delivers us unlimited possibilities to become and manifest anything we give our time, attention and faith.
When feeling disconnected from your Higher Power, I would encourage you to take some time to surround yourself with nature.
If you are not able to see the wholeness and beauty in yourself, nature is a reminder of the purity and that all of life is in Divine order.
Alternate nostril breathing is a popular yogic meditation practice. In sanskrit it is called nadi shodhana pranayama which translates to "subtle energy clearing breathing technique."

When you are feeling stressed, give yourself the opportunity to do this simple breathing exercise to get you back to a peaceful state of mind.
Meditation is an integral part of Spiritual growth.
Below is a rain meditation I recorded during a vacation.
Please read the instructions before you begin
John Kabat-Zinn wrote Wherever You Go There You Are. He made an amazing point about staying in the moment no matter what situation you are involved. Watch this video for some insight on being happy no matter what your circumstances.
We tend to think if we were in a different job or a different relationship or on a vacation, life will be better.
This falls under “The grass is always greener on the other side.”
The problem is no matter what vacation you go on or what job you are working, you are still there.
You still have the same attitude and the same goals.
So instead of wanting to be somewhere else thinking that will make you happy, be peaceful in the moment.
Love WHERE YOU ARE.
Do not give up on your goals and dreams, but find happiness in your current situation.
I heard a story from Wayne Dyer in which he talked about meeting 2 people on his walk along the beach in Hawaii.
A man was considering moving there and asked what the people were like. Wayne asked...
