Today is my anniversary

CPILTToday is my anniversary – two years on the Big Island. Two years away from the crazy life I led in the corporate world. That world seems so far away though fleeting thoughts and small phrases can bring it alive in a heartbeat. The other day my husband said, “The boat’s on fire!” My heart dropped and I started hyperventilating – that was the phrase my management team used whenever something so big came up that we needed to drop everything and huddle in my office to lay out the issue and determine next steps. It happened way more often than I wanted. But I was amused at my body’s reaction to the phrase two whole years later.

I knew what I wanted for this next chapter of my life, and I manifested it: reconnection with my daughters and husband, loving new friends, good health, a deep connection to my new community, a new career, I’ve found all of it. There’s no magic in how I achieved it. Just a simple process: Trust, Ask, and Accept with Gratitude. Trust that you can have what you want. All you have to do is be clear about your desires. Ask your God, Higher Power, whatever you call Her, for the outcome you desire. Then Accept it with gratitude. That’s it. That’s how you Manifest YOUR Paradise. There are other tools that can help. But this is the most important.

Part of gratitude is sharing your good fortune. So I’m working on ways to share what I’ve learned and pass it on to others. I finally sent my book of transformation and manifestation tools to a publisher, and I’m excited about a new opportunity to develop a workshop or retreat.

As for what’s next in my personal life, the only thing I don’t have is a clutter-free house. I need to manifest a home organizer.
