I am updating the recipe for success after receiving great feedback from many friends. The original recipe was great but after experimenting, I found out that we can also take fewer steps. The end result is just as delicious if not more!
According to a rumor that appears to originate from one of the Le Cordon Bleu schools, the recipe for success has already been cooked to perfection by various renowned chefs. It seems that there can be different ingredients and ways of cooking for the same dish. Consequently, the results can be as varied and flavorful; producing unique palate experiences.
Don’t laugh but here is the secret that I found out from inside sources of award-winning culinary chefs: the ones that win rave reviews are those that strangely create in their consumers……the miraculous effect of balancing their chakras and sending them on an instantaneous flight to heaven, with just a single bite.
“Don’t miss the beautiful colours of the rainbow while searching for that pot of gold.” Anonymous
In the pursuit for our dreams, we can become so occupied with our tasks or to-do items that we miss out on the colors, sensations and experiences that the present moment brings. We forget to “smell the roses”. Over time, we wonder why life seems to be such a drag, robbed of joy and void of delight in the simplest of things.
Many of us chase after our dreams, hoping to find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The rainbow represents our hope for a bolder and more brilliant future. It forms a beautiful arch across the sky. Yet, it also appears to be beyond reach.
Well, going for our dreams is great! I support the idea very much. It’s important to have dreams, to eventually manifest our heart’s desires. However, the road to success may be paved with major difficulties….or even everyday challenges and times when life seems just like all work.
“The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.” Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars
I am not a Jedi Knight nor do I have midi-chlorians, as the Star Wars movies suggest, for accessing the Force.
However, as with all energy healing practitioners alike, I have been tapping into Universal Life Energy….which I guess pretty much means the same thing as the Force, but without all the laser movie effects.
Even then, as I found out, we do not need go through any attunement process with any healing modality to experience Universal Life Force energy. Say, if we master Qigong, we can begin to feel a vital source of energy flowing within and through us.
“Do you ever look at someone and wonder, what is going on inside their head?” Joy, Inside-Out movie.
Would you like to meet the voices inside your head that speak to you all day?
Well, find out the identity of these voices and how they drive your behavior by watching the Disney/Pixar movie Inside-Out.
On first glance, it would seem that Inside-Out – being an animated movie – is meant for kids. However, I found it to be great for adults too. I had watched it with my family over the weekend. The movie sheds clever and enlightening insights into the complexities of emotion; in a way that is also touching, fun and charming.
When you finally let go of your emotional attachment, you open the space for miracles to physically manifest!
Listen in as Kristin Astourian reviewed my Abundance Alchemy Program in the video below. She also shared her thoughts on the key to manifestation and how the Universe has responded by sending her a surprise money bonus 🙂
Kristin Astourian holds a professional job and is also a singer-cum-song writer based in Austin, Texas. Her dream is to creatively express her soul at the physical level. You can find her works at http://www.chumsmusic.com.
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to connect with talented and creative artistes such as her. She has been amazing to work with! I am extremely thrilled for Kristin and continue to root for her success!!!
To dreams coming true,

“Way down deep, you know what you like. You know what you’re drawn to. You know what will work for you. If you doubt this, or like a good majority of the people, feel totally lost when it comes to envisioning what you want, what is missing isn’t some superhuman insight; what’s missing is very simply trust in yourself.” Fran Sorin, Digging Deep
I was introduced to Fran Sorin’s Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots Through Gardening book after getting acquainted with her online, a few years back. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. Not just any gardening book, it is one that invites readers to awaken their creativity in a soulful process. I enjoyed her book tremendously. Well, Fran has just released her 10th anniversary edition. And so, I decided to jump at the chance of introducing it on my blog for compelling reasons.
As Digging Deep clearly illustrates, gardening is but a metaphor of life. It puts you in touch with the rhythms and cycles, the ups and downs and changes over the seasons. Through gardening, you undergo experiences that bring about emotional wholeness. Very importantly, you learn to let go of the outcome. Instead, you allow the results unfold whilst focusing on your own journey.
“All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination. Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.” Napoleon Hill
It can be hard to believe yourself as a powerful creative being, with the ability to change your current reality simply by directing your thoughts. I have had tremendous difficulty with this myself as well, especially in the beginning when I started trying to practice deliberate thinking. Most of us invariably find ourselves slipping back into a world of victimhood. Any notion about being powerful co-creators gets instantly thrown out of the window when we are faced with stress.
Yet, the Law of Deliberate Creation is a law. In addition, there is already scientific evidence to support how our reality is influenced by what we believe in. Quantum physics has shown that just by the act of observation, a person can alter reality.
“A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.” Denis Waitley
It is the time of the year whereby you may wish to review the vision board that you have made or set some new goals for the next 12 months. Perhaps, you have watched “The Secret” movie or even watched Oprah, who shared about the power of using vision boards to bring forward your dreams.
So are you on the way to manifesting your vision? Or are you still struggling with manifesting the life that you desire?
If you are still struggling, listen to my New Year message about doing things differently this year and starting off with proper visioning work.
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Albert Einstein
Are you bringing last year’s baggage of frustration, confusion and dissatisfaction into the new year?
Still feeling stuck as ever?
Lost in which way to go?
Chances are if you have ended 2012 still feeling lost, confused and stuck, you will be carrying the same baggage of emotions into the new year.
Let’s look back at what has happened since my last post in December.
So the world did not end in 2012. It is not like you think it would. You prefer to believe that a shift in energies has occurred on the all-important date of Dec 21, 2012, heralding the creation of a new beginning.
The energy signature of planet Earth will shift from one of anger and fear to one of love and acceptance. The old matrix is falling away. The rise of the Golden Age, with a brilliance that illuminates the entire galaxy, dawns. It has been planned for eons. Everything is in perfect timing. The countdown is almost complete.
Ascension date of December 21 falls two days away. We are given the opportunity to shift from the third dimensional reality that is based on fear and darkness to the fifth dimensional reality that is based on love and light. If you have not already made the intention, there is still time to make the decision to shift and therefore, take advantage of the strong energy influx that has already been occurring.
