Visioning is a new word for me and since I have tripped over it several times in one week,  I will honour it's gentle reminder that perhaps I should be leaning in.

When I picked up the January issue of Science of Mind,  a guide for spiritual living, naturally I opened to the page on Visioning and Vision Boards. The latter I have only done as a collage exercise, and without the devoted intention  and attention to consciousness. While the applications for this sort of exercise are vast, what's resonating with me is the chance to envision the highest potential or ideal outcome on a given day or for an anticipated event. It's as if there could be some magical access to a field of limitless possibilities, and with the help of our focussed energy and imagination, we can become a conduit - vibrationally speaking - for these events to be made manifest in exactly the way we have envisioned.

Many of us have been doing our own version of this for years, but now neuro - scientists are on board. Dr. Joe Dispenza, for example is teaching us that by using these techniques of mental rehearsal, we can clearly shift our mood, mind and thoughts out of the past, and into a future that is free of all the burdens and density we have been tormenting ourselves with. Dr. Joe frequently asks the question, "What or who must we become to allow the unfolding of our vision?" Dr. Michael Beckwith of "The Secret" fame, is another pioneer of these techniques as they pertain to a spiritual practice. It's no secret at all, that those who have become wildly successful in their respective fields, began the journey with a singular vision and a powerful focus and commitment to manifesting their dreams. Witness Elon Musk and Richard Branson!

Thanks also to a beautiful creator who just happens to be my daughter, Danielle. This is one of her dynamic collages that just spoke to me with its energy and joy for experiences in life that are filled with love and connection and exhilaration!

Think Responsibly This Year!

Greetings from Southwest Florida my lovelies. If you are checking into the Zendoll Workshop for the first time in ages, that's makes two of us! If thoughts of finding more clarity, meaning and purpose have crossed your mind - whether commensurate with the beginning of a new year, or just as a general theme in your life, then you are not alone. There are thousands of us seekers out there, and while you may wonder how to access guidance that may be relevant to you at this time, fear not, there is plenty to be found! Ironically, there are more answers to be found within than you could ever know...... forgive me if it sounds like I have found any more answers than the next person. I have only just begun to know where to look, and that alone is something of a triumph. Because it's still early in January, it's probably relevant to ponder our intentions. The word resolution does for me what the studies say diets do for the masses. Eventually, absolutely nothing! The word "Intention" resonates so much more, because with little effort and just a mindful nudge now and then, I can stick to it. If our intentions are in line with who we are, or want to be at our core, then the rest is easy. It gets even easier when we let go of all the random thoughts that hijack our joy. It seems to me that humans are wired to obsess about the very things (thoughts in this case) that not only don't serve us well, but are in fact, simply false. Those thoughts are thought about so often that they become burdensome beliefs. If you find yourself getting caught up in negative thought loops, or if your own mind has turned into a tyrannical superpower, do not despair. Becoming the observer is the first step towards reclaiming your power!
