The nature of the universe is growth and expansion. Translation: Change —the one thing you can count on in your life. Going into an unknown in your life because of change, regardless of the arena, can be stressful and scary.*
Since my last blog post in April, I've been working to bring you the benefits of all the work of the Divine Riches Project in a simple, step-by-step self-discovery process you can use to empower yourself to transform your life!
This is the knowledge I spent a lifetime researching and learning through personal experience that I used to pull myself up when I was certain I couldn't bear to go another step after defeat after defeat, and loss after loss in my life. Over decades, I eventually learned the "behind-the-scenes" secrets of how to transform my life.
This is for you if you're tired of feeing frustrated, stressed, stuck, and powerless in your life. If you're tired of feeling at the effect of other people and things like the economy, your boss, your relationships, and most importantly, maybe even yourself, because you have a sense that somewhere in all of this, there's something out there that's better for you. And you know what, you'd be right!
Life Empowerment Fast Tracks For Life Change: From Fear to Freedom™ 5-Step Accelerated Self-Discovery Process is a self-discovery journey where you'll learn more about your favorite subject, you, as you learn to empower yourself to experience a new level of personal freedom, whether in your personal or work life.
This knowledge will lead you, step-by-step, from fear to self love to freedom so you can discover how amazing you are while revealing the universal secrets of creating the changes you want in your life!
*Step 1, 3 Ways to Rise Through Change in Your Life: The Path of the Phoenix, will increase your self-awareness and give you a valuable 3-step formula to help you navigate change in your life, whether it's change that's "just happening" to you now (you have to start where you are) or the kind of change you'll learn in the full 5-Step process: how to create deliberate change.
Best of all, Step 1, coming in Autumn 2016, is a free teleseminar. This means you can have this valuable knowledge in the comfort of your own home, or on the go, through your phone line. You'll gain self-awareness and a simple formula you can use now (and throughout your life) to help you navigate the changes you're experiencing. You'll also receive information about how to continue your momentum in learning how to transform your life with the next step in your Life Empowerment Fast Tracks For Life Change: From Fear to Freedom™ 5-Step Accelerated Self-Discovery Process.
While we're getting everything set up for this free event, you can make sure you get your invitation to attend by leaving your contact information. We respect and guard your privacy and will keep that information between us. Because this is an early-bird request, please leave a note "free teleseminar" so we know to put you on the invitation list.
I'm so excited to be bringing you this knowledge and teleseminar in the autumn because it can start you on your journey in empowering yourself!
In the meantime, enjoy your summer and don't forget to leave your contact information so you can receive the information to attend this free event when it becomes available. Look forward to having you on the call coming up in a few short months!
Warmly and with great anticipation,
Anything worthwhile to you requires your time, attention, and focus. While most days you may be humming along just fine, on others you may be in the throes of frustration, fear, or despair that others may not see on your journey to realizing your dreams.
I originally post this photo of the sculpture Rigel Angel a few years ago after unexpectedly meeting the artist, Eddie Rodriguez, and his wife Zorayda.
Eddie's sculpture represents (my personal perspective) heroically lifting oneself from the chains of any one of a million reasons we can get stuck. Because we all experience ups and downs to varying degrees that can tether us, it's a powerful visual.
If you find yourself in a temporary downturn, simple things can help you push the reset button. Taking a walk, getting some sleep, planting a flower, petting your cat or dog (fur angel), or focusing on something you enjoy can do wonders for moving yourself into your feel-better place.
This empowers you to then move forward rather than counterproductively attempting to do so when what you really, really need in the moment is the time-out chair!
To Your Realized Dreams!

Living a few insulated miles inland, it's easy to forget the power of Lake Michigan.
I’ve recently been making the drive up the coast to the charming tourist town of St. Joseph. The road that hugs the coast to one degree or another periodically exposes a view of the wonder of this Great Lake.
While a pleasure most times of the year, experiencing the fury of sideways snow from gusts that rip off the lake with the force of a high-speed rail train is a new experience that evokes awe. Visibility permitting, seeing white cap rollers to the horizon, a byproduct of the fierce winds that make it nearly impossible to open a car door, evoke a description — ‘Edmund Fitzgeraldy.’
For those who may not know, the words refer to a rogue Great Lake storm that overtook the Edmund Fitzgerald ship and its crew, including a young man from St. Joe, while transporting iron ore. It's immortalized in a song by Gordon Lightfoot illustrated by this video from Joseph Fulton.
This raw living energy is an extension of the same power that animates you, beating your heart and breathing your body. Insulated by the details of everyday living, it’s easy to forget. When you can ‘get on top of the wave’ and begin to understand and align with this, a sense of personal worthlessness and the ego's shallow attempts at compensation begin to loosen their grip.
On a lighter note, when describing the winter weather to a fellow traveler, he quipped, 'It's a good thing you drove instead of taking the ore boat in.'

Over the first few weeks in January, I asked people about their New Year's resolutions. With the Divine Riches Project branding recently incorporating the question, 'What Do You Really Want?' (and considering the time of year), it was a natural progression.
Those who responded were genuine and candid; there was no preliminary notice. Just a simple question, 'Would you like to say what you'd like to experience for yourself in the coming year and possibly be in a YouTube video?'
Most were willing. The few that chose not to were across the board in age groups, so experience with social media (or not) didn't appear to be a factor. Most took just a brief pause, and then talked.
Working with various film clips, no matter what was said (obviously, we were having fun), I was increasingly taken by the people behind the comments that were replayed again and again during editing.
What impacted me as I felt more deeply into each response was — for lack of what's beyond words — the innate goodness of the essence of each individual.
We're all cities within ourselves with many facets and aspects that come forward at different times. What I saw is a microcosm of the beauty that's in everyone, regardless of what has or hasn't been done, perceived flaws, or a million other reasons to look upon oneself harshly.
What I truly want to say to anyone and everyone is, 'Please choose to focus on the good in yourself. There's so much there!’ And the cool thing bonus is that when you do that for yourself, it not only makes it easier to see in others — it actually makes it easier for you to have what you want.
With heartfelt appreciation to everyone who participated in the 'What Do You Really Want' YouTube video — (you know who you are) ;-) !

If you’ve experienced heartbreak in your life (who hasn’t?), with the perspective of time, you may look back and see that although it darn near shredded you to bits, all kinds of good sprang from a hot mess.
For years I’ve had a fantasy of being a master somm (wine expert). These are the folks who have such trained palates that they can take a sip of wine and tell you where on the planet it came from. I live in a special pocket of the world by Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes (the sixth largest freshwater lake in the world for those who like fun facts). The water proximity provides extraordinary growing conditions for produce, including grapes.
In the spirit of that interest, I’ve dedicated a small portion of time to a premier Michigan winery helping guests learn about wine. Through this experience, I’ve developed a greater appreciation for the land, lake, and weather patterns that affect it all. Glossy wine magazines and fancy glasses aside, an industry insider described the essence of the trade as ‘farming.’
Knowing the importance of land in the growing equation, I've learned that less than optimum natural growing conditions stress vines. Counterintuitively, this leads to grapes that can produce the best wines. Roots need to reach deeply into the earth to gain the nutrients and water necessary to produce superior grapes, not possible lollygagging near the surface.
I knew an inspirational quote was in that analogy. A photo to illustrate the idea was another matter. Finding a close-up of a beautiful bunch of grapes in the right light, at the right stage of development and color within untold acres of vineyards is an exercise in patience and perseverance. Grapes and their vines don’t grow in a visually ordered way as suggested by the lush packaged bunches seen in a grocery store. They can be a compositional mess!
When I serendipitously found a cluster of grapes growing from a strong weathered vine that I could work with, pre-dawn, post-dawn, mid-day, and post-sunset excursions were made to a roadside vineyard that hosted the rare find. Often accompanied by a crowing rooster in the distance, a travel mug of lukewarm decaf coffee and wet sneakers from the morning dew, hours were spent in the vineyard experimenting with visual angles that would illustrate the quote that came to me:
‘Like remarkable wine, challenging situations that force your roots deeper create a more exceptional you.’
When life presents you with a ‘hot mess,’ the status quo is disrupted. Those circumstances provide the opportunity for a time out that allows introspection — going deeper within yourself. It’s during those times that a greater aspect of yourself is allowed to come forward, building strength while bringing the essential nutrients needed to expand and eventually mellow into a fuller, deeper, richer expression of you.
Cheers to a Gold Medal You!
