Vending at The International New Age Trade Show last weekend was an amazing experience and as my husband and I embarked upon the long flight home, I was reminded how important it is to NEVER give up on your dreams.
Being a vendor at that show was a big dream come through for me and I couldn't help but wonder where I would be at this very moment, had I not stuck it out for so long...
It hasn't been an easy road for me to follow. At the height of my business success back in 2005, I was on top of the world - literally with increasing sales and helping others throughout the WORLD...I really thought I was well on my way towards creating & sharing new hypnosis products and services that would someday change the way we process our information and beliefs..making life more enjoyable...more bearable.
And then the internet market took a nose dive! (directly right alongside my life situation changing). Financial security was no more, I moved back home to MA., and no longer had the resources to create my beautiful healing products!
Did it get me down? HELL NO - Because I had this burning desire to get back there! To get my hypnosis products back in the spotlight and help facilitate healing and personal freedom for my clients.
It's hard to believe that I have been on the uphill climb back for almost 10 years..but I did it. All because I knew that no matter what went wrong (or right), what road blocks had been put in my path or what doubts about myself surfaced - That I should always follow my bliss!
Here are some great tips to help keep you on track towards your personal bliss in life - because following your bliss, will always lead to fulfillment and true happiness!
THREE TIPS YOU CAN'T MISS - THAT HELP YOU TO ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR BLISS!
I have a pretty good idea on what this dream means for me, but I thought it would be fun to share it with you and get your thoughts on it. So...here goes!
Last night, I had a dream that I lived on the top floor of an apartment complex. I guess you could say it was the penthouse apartment (duh, since it was on the top floor!). The building was as tall as a double Ferris Wheel. I know this because in my dream, there was a fair going on outside my apartment and the Ferris Wheel was set up right next to my balcony.
People who were riding on the Ferris Wheel, kept getting off of it, when it would stop at my balcony and they would come in to see my apartment, hang out on the balcony, etc.
It seemed like this dream went on forever - My husband and I were actually giving these people tours of the apartment! Towards the end of the night, I complained to my husband that the event outside my door was getting annoying. He suggested that he would go to the fair manager and have him move the Ferris Wheel away from the building. The last thing I remember before waking up, is saying to him...there is no way to move a Ferris Wheel, once it has been set up!
Ok, my friends - what do YOU think the dream meant? Please enter your comments below - I look forward to hearing your interpretations!
Have YOU had the opportunity to experience the astounding life changing effects of Hypnosis?
I'm so sure that Hypnosis is the secret to your personal success... And I feel that it is SO important for you to experience it now... That I plan to GIVE AWAY more than 50 hypnosis products that can guarantee will change your life forever!
Why am I giving away more than 50 hypnosis products?
I'm doing this for a couple of reasons
FIRST - I really care about you and your personal growth and I know all too well how things like FEAR, FAILURE, REJECTION, HUMILIATION, LONELINESS, STRESS AND GUILT can hold you back from being the YOU that you dream of being.
I got up this morning and went straight to my morning routine as I always do on weekdays. Rolled out of bed - hair standing up as if I performed some type of rock concert in my sleep the night before, said my good mornings to the toilet bowl, sleepwalked my way to the kitchen to make my husbands lunch for the day, fed the cat and then finally poured myself a cup of coffee... and began thinking about my day ahead.
How did I get to the point in my life, where I am so far behind on everything that I wake every morning thinking about all of the things that I need to get caught up on? I do not know the answer to that...It's been so long now - and I've even managed to invite my friends and family to the let's get Michelle caught up party!
In my weekly success driven group...I talk about what I am behind on and what I am going to do to get caught up...I ask my friends and family "What's wrong with me?" and they gladly tell me all of the thing that the think I can fix about myself. (then of course I get pissed at them for thinking they can tell me what to do...lol). I search online for advice and am directed to write a list of everything that I am behind on and "Chunk it down" to bite sized pieces so I can get caught up. Yeah, I'll do that. Now I can look at the long list of everything that I have fallen behind on! Great!
And yet, I am still behind. Behind on my projects... Behind on my housework... Behind on my callbacks... Behind on paying my bills....
What would happen if I began to focus on being ahead of things, instead of behind on them?
And what could I put in place to help me get to the point where every morning I am thinking about what I am going to do next? So, I am going to start small, because let's face it - if I decided today to begin telling myself that I am ahead of things... that would be a lie and my subconscious would reject it like the plague!
I'm sure that the chain of events that brought me to this point stated small as well. Perhaps with one little thing that I needed to get caught up with... by focusing mainly on that one thing, I could have easily tricked my brain into looking for everything that I was behind on to cause a snowball effect of constantly being behind.
I made myself this affirmation. In fact, I made several of them to hang around my home so that they are the first new thoughts to start my day. One is beside my bed. one is in the bathroom. One is on the refrigerator and one is hung above my coffee pot!
I think it's already working....because today I am ahead on my blog-post for the week!
Thanks for listening and be well!

I just finished creating a testimonial page for my website and decided to go through all of my old emails, looking for testimonials to add that have been sent to me throughout the years and I came across a folder full of Newsletter postings from 2009!
This one especially spoke to me today, and I thought it would be nice to tweak it a bit and share it with you!
The Body, Mind, Spirit Approach to Success
Whether you are Looking for success for a relationship, business or life, the Body, Mind, Spirit approach can help you manifest your desires!
The BODY language for success
I have spent many years vending at Holistic and New age Expo's. The people that vend at these events are both fun to be around and fun to watch. I love to people watch, and it is from people watching that I realized that success has a certain look. Those who project success always seem to be the ones who, at the end of the day, achieve success. They look the part: their displays are impeccable, they stand tall and confident, greeting everyone with a smile and a welcoming persona that seems to draw customers into their booth.
I have put together an exercise that will help you achieve that same successful outcome. First...ask yourself:
What does success look like to me?
Take a moment to think about this question. Think about what it is that you'd like to become successful with and write it down on a piece of paper.
Write down what you would look like once you have achieved this success.
Pay close attention to your body language: are you standing tall? leaning in to talk with others? What do your facial expressions look like?
Also make a mental note of the clothing you are wearing, your hairstyle and any other physical aspects of your successful self.
Walk, Talk and look the part of your successful self!
It can't be that easy can it? Yes it can! and you will be amazed by the changes that take place in your life.
Take a look at the notes that you just wrote down and compare them to yourself now. Are you able to notice the differences?
Now that you are aware of what this success looks like to you...make a conscious effort to step into that picture and VOILA!
Simply put, walk, talk, look and act just as your successful self does in your minds eye and soon you'll notice that Success is yours for the taking!
Create a successful MINDset
When we constantly repeat statements about ourselves that are less than what we know to be true - we are setting the perfect environment for failure! I'm sure you've found yourself saying thing like:
I'll never be able to achieve that goal because... OR, I always seem to fall into the same type of relationship...AND EVEN, I'm just not good at any of this!
If you want to change your life...Change your MIND!
Success can be yours when you "think" successful thoughts. OK, here's another exercise for you to try:
1. Write down on a piece of paper, what it is exactly that you'd like to be successful at. If you find yourself writing what you don't want or what you'd like to change...you'll need to re-think this question and make changes that reflect an "I want" statement. For example: instead of writing "I'd like to stop being broke" you'll want to write something like "I'd like to attract more money into my life". Write as many as you'd like.
2. Now you can use this list as your personalized positive affirmation list! Write these positive affirmations everywhere! So that you will see them every day - It takes about 21 days to change a mindset, so be patient with yourself and stick with it!
Some good places to hang your affirmations:
1. The refrigerator
2. Your front or back door(both sides - so that you will See it coming and going!)
2. Around the outside of your computer monitor
3. The bathroom mirror
4. on the ceiling above your bed (so that it's the first thing you see in the morning!)
5. Be creative and think of your own special place to leave the affirmations!
If are more of a visual person, you can cut out pictures of your affirmations and hang them in plain sight as well!
Believe it in SPIRIT and achieve it in life!
If you believe, like I do, that there is something out there...greater than ourselves, working towards our highest good, then prayer beads are for you! Call it what you will, God, Goddess, Ala, the universe, etc...for every belief, there is a form of prayer.
So here we are, looking successful and walking around with a new positive mindset. Now lets take it a step further ans summon that success directly from the universe! The bible even states "ask and ye shall receive"
Assuming that you are already comfortable with your own personal beliefs and have adapted prayer practices, I have included three of the most popular types of prayer beads and some uses for them to help draw success your way.
1. Rosary Beads- The Rosary (from Latin rosarium, meaning "rose garden" or "garland of roses" ) is a popular traditional Roman Catholic devotion. The term denotes both a set of prayer beads and the devotional prayer itself, which combines vocal (or silent) prayer and meditation. ... A special devotion to St. Joseph is said to help bring success to your business.
2. Mala Beads- Malas are made with 108, 27, 21 or 19 beads. They are used to count prayers or mantras. Buddhists use counters to keep track of how many times around a Mala they have counted - Repeating "OM NAMO GANESHAYA" is a great mantra for success.Ganesha is the God of beginnings and success. Therefore, this mantra is formed at the beginning of new undertakings and to bring about success by removing obstacles.
3. Pagan rosary - Pagan rosaries can be made from beads in a variety of shapes and sizes with charms representing various deities dangling from them. In Pagan traditions, the beads or stones themselves are believed to have an effect on the devotee as he or she prays. - Prayers for success can vary depending on the desired outcome and sometimes a pagan rosary will be made for that specific purpose in mind. My best advise is to meditate on the desired result while using the prayer beads.
