Creative Visualization

Recently I was feeling a bit silly and rather serious at the same time. Practicing a little creative visualization, I sheepishly snuck an advance reader copy of my upcoming book, Walking the Heart Path, into my local Barnes & Noble, found a few favorite authors' books for companions, placed my own on the shelf, took out my camera, [...]

On Dreams & Miracles…

The moment we quit dreaming is the moment we quit manifesting miracles in our own life, for when we have no intentional aim, we most assuredly will get lost in the wilderness of life. I'm curious to know... Do you take time out to dream on a regular basis? Do you have an intentional aim [...]
