Three things I learned from Sean Penn

“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”–Henri BergsonThree things I learned from Sean Penn

1. Always wear sun screen.

2. Marrying Madonna is not the fast track to wedded bliss.

3. It’s impossible to judge by appearances.

Sean Penn, a brilliant actor, has played a wide range of roles over the years: he played a surfer stoner in Fast Times at Ridgmont High, almost single-handedly introducing the term “dude” into the American lexicon, he played a racist murderer in Dead Man Walking, a mentally handicapped father in I am Sam and gay-rights icon Harvey Milk who was gunned down in the prime of his life in Milk. In real life, none of us would choose any of these roles. They’re unappealing and, on the surface anyway, difficult to live through.

Penn, of course, chose these roles because they helped him expand as an actor. They helped him grow. They helped him become hugely successful, winning an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his Harvey Milk portrayal.

As I point out in E-Cubed (yes, I’m now resorting to shameless self-promotion), our job is to create, not critique.

How do we really know that this “bad” thing isn’t really the best thing in disguise?

Judging anything as good or bad, right or wrong, black or white automatically slashes our possibilities by 50 percent.

I believe we often create holograms of “unfortunate” things—for the expansion it will create, for the “Academy award” it will eventually reap.

Our judging minds are so quick to leap to “OMG. That’s a catastrophe.” We shut down. Become holier than though.

Take sexual abuse, for example. Who in Worldview 1.0 could withhold judgment in such a situation, particularly when the abuse is perpetrated on a child?

Yet, Louise Hay, whose life has literally blessed millions of people probably wouldn’t be the person she is today had she not gone through that particular “catastrophe.”

Through this seeming “trauma,” she was able to find her own inner wisdom and realize the monstrous love machine she really is. Many things that at face value look like difficulties end up being miracles in the end. The cancer that we might believe isn’t fair can be a pathway to Truth. It can be a door to potent opportunities. We get to decide.

So instead of asking the question “Why do bad things happen to good people?” we should ask, “Why do good people think bad things can even happen?”

Bad is nothing but a judgment call, a judgment call we’re not qualified to make. Just like American Idol hasn’t requested your services next to JLO and Keith Urban, you really aren’t qualified to judge what is good and bad.

Once we wake up every morning and say, “this is the best thing that ever happened to me” we will move into alignment where beauty and joy are free to rise.

I look forward to the day when we’ll be able to recognize and call forth the love without creating the disaster. But until then, I, like Randy Jackson, am resigning from being a judge.

You are scary powerful


“Perception is but a mirror, not a fact. What I look on is my state of mind reflected outward.” — A Course In Miracles

Hay House just sent me an advance copy of E-Cubed. I absolutely love it and am so excited to share it with the world.

I must admit I’ve been a little nervous. I’ve only been reading it on my computer, in my editor’s notes and well, E-Squared was such a big smash that I wondered–—What if people don’t like it as much?

After ripping open the package yesterday and seeing it in the flesh, as an actual book, I fell in love with it and, quite frankly, was even more besotted than I am with E-Squared. This is a frickin’ amazing book!!

E-Cubed is deeper, takes us further into the Infinite Field of Potentiality and, quite frankly, will likely push a few buttons.

But as I say in E-Cubed, “It matters not what anybody else thinks. Believing it does is part of the old-school conditioning that should be drop-kicked to the nearest curb. The only thing that matters is what I think. Because what I think is what I get.

So I’m happy to announce. I. LOVE. E-CUBED. If any five-year-olds were around, they’d undoubtedly say, “Then why don’t you marry it?”

One of the strategies I discuss in the new book (and you’ve read it here, too) is “get a group together to talk about these all-important spiritual principles.”

Today, I met with one of my groups, that I call my power posses, and Jay Pryor, who is a fabulous, amazing life coach, told this story.

His cousin or uncle or somebody in his family has knee problems. He wants a knee replacement and told Jay that he was getting one in 2016.

Jay looked at him hobbling around and said, “Buddy, you need to get that knee replacement now.”

“But, but….” the cousin or uncle said. “I don’t have the money. I need to save up.”

Jay, who is a formidable manifester and knows the importance of speaking intentions over a situation, said “Nope, you’re going to get it now, before your 50th birthday.”

His cousin or uncle called him last night and said, “Jay, you’re scary powerful.”

An old client called him right after Jay’s intention and sent him $10,000, just enough to do the surgery….now.

We are all scary powerful, guys, and the sooner we can consciously use this scary power, the quicker we can turn this world around.

Why I’m the luckiest person on the planet, Part 11

“You can’t buy happiness with the currency of unhappiness.”—James Altucher

I adore books. Makes sense, right? I’m an author.

Every now and then, I fall so madly in love with a book that I simply have no choice but to insist that everyone I know read it.

I just found such a book. It’s called Choose Yourself: Be Happy, Make Millions, Live the Dream. The author is James Altucher. I’ve already moved it to my all-time favorites list and I’ve only read two chapters.

I went to the author’s website and noticed his post: “How to be the Luckiest Guy on the Planet in Four Easy Steps.”

Talk about synchronicity. As ya’ll know, I’ve been writing about BEING the luckiest person on the planet for the past 18 months.

Altucher says he has three goals: 1) To be happy, 2) to eradicate unhappiness and 3) to make every day as smooth as possible.

Does this sound familiar or what?

The universe, which constantly sends signs and blessings, had to work double-time to get my attention on this particular book.

Here’s how it went down. Silver Lining Cruises recently invited me to do a workshop. On the call to set it up, the organizers mentioned a post they’d read by Reid Tracy (president of Hay House) talking about my book.

I’d already deleted that particular mass email without reading it (sorry, Reid, I get tons of email), but you better believe I went back to my trash folder to retrieve it. In it, he not only mentioned me and E-Squared, but he mentioned Altucher’s book, The Power of No, that Hay House just released.

While I haven’t read that one…YET, I did get my hands on Choose Yourself. I started it this morning and, as I said, I’m already completely pumped. Good thing I’m about to go play pickle ball.

Altucher says everything I’ve been saying. And he says it in a way that entrepreneurs and non-spiritual types can get. This is a guy who turned the stock market around (funny story, read the book) by giving away Hershey’s kisses on Wall Street.

After starting the book (and discovering Altucher is a literary soul mate), I tried to find Reid’s email again. Being on anything (even an email) with James Altucher is like being on a list with Albert Einstein and Abraham Lincoln. So I wanted to save it.

Alas, it was permanently deleted. But I did take a screenshot from Amazon (that I tried to post here and couldn’t) of another list of bestselling authors with me right between James Altucher and Tony Robbins.

Pretty heady company, I’d say.

Enough babbling. Just do me a favor. Read this book.

Why you should never talk smack about your body

“The body is the best mind reader on the planet.”—Dr. Joe Dispenza

People have started to ask.

What happened on your Top Chef cruise to Bermuda?

Did your intention to lose weight work?

I’m happy to report that even though I enjoyed some of the best food on the planet, my body continued to run the programming I installed from an early age.

My programming of choice says, “I can eat whatever I want and maintain a healthy, lithe and beautiful body.”

Even though the dominant paradigm tells me that food can be dangerous and that I should watch what I eat, I prefer to run my own programming.

My thoughts (and yours, too) carry an amplitude of energy that can easily override the dominant paradigm…as long as I make that conscious decision.

We all have an invisible field of information that orchestrates our cells, our tissues, the chemicals in our bodies and other physical things that play out in the material world.

Nothing is set in stone (the field is infinite and ever-changing). It is only our repetitive habits (reading diet books and articles about losing weight in women’s magazines, for example) that show us the same results. We can change all that seems like “fact” by withdrawing our attention from it and imagining a more pleasing reality.

And speaking of pleasing realities, I’d like to announce the following opportunities:

If you’re looking for something to do this afternoon at 4 p.m. California time, I’ll be answering questions on Healing with the Masters. Here’s a link:

Also, on September 13 and 14th, I’m giving a writer’s workshop in Sydney, Australia with Reid Tracy, president of Hay House, and Leon Nacson, director of Hay House Australia.

And if you’re in Europe, stop by and say hi! at either of the following I Can Do It’s! I’ll be presenting a talk on September 28 in Rotterdam and on October 4 in London.

Come by and help me override the tiresome dominant paradigm that, I’m thinking, has way over-stayed its welcome.

“If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, he has not understood it.” Niels Bohr

I know it’s only Tuesday, but there’s reason to celebrate. One of the many things I’m celebrating today is Greg Kuhn’s new book which is out now. In honor of its riveting debut, here’s a guest post from THE MAN himself.

Do You Truly Know the Answer to: “Why Are You Here”? By Greg Kuhn

We now know what our universe really is: unbound energy. And I don’t mean to insult you with the title of this post because I’m quite sure you’re familiar with why you are here: to play the amazing fulfilling role of a contextual creator of your life experiences.

Continued acknowledgment is appropriate here of the fact that our role of creator can sound like a new age, feel-good, wouldn’t-it-be-nice-if-it-were true philosophy when weighed against a Neanderthal’s paradigms. It can sound, to the skeptic still trapped in the paradigms of her senses, something that all of us “new age, airy-fairy” types naively wish were true.

People who aren’t ready to take the next steps of human evolution can’t help themselves for reacting like this because this information runs counter to what their senses tell them. There is precious little indication from our senses indicating that we are contextually creating our material experiences; who can be blamed for thinking that the material world is “out there”, outside of us, existing independently of us, and merely awaiting out discovery?

But because we now know how our universe really “works”, and because we now know that the creation of the material world is not a bottom-up process, those Neanderthal perspectives have a limited shelf-life. Which is fortunate for Neanderthals, of course, because a bottom-up paradigm is pretty scary, as we all know. In fact, some of us could say that we are deliberate creators not because we want to get to paradise, but because we’ve been imprisoned by our misery and we don’t ever want to go back.

Although you have a pretty good idea of why you are here, it’s important to point out some important conceptual semantics in that question itself. These semantics are invaluable for a leading-edge creator like you. You need to always remember who “you” are. And the answer to who “you” are reveals why “you” are here.

But there is one more contextual semantic to iron out, because the term “here” must also be correctly defined in answering the question of why “you” are “here”.

“You” are not your body. Your body is finite, as far as we know; your body is a collapsed portion of the quantum field and, as such, is a time-space event. “You” are not your body; “you” are your consciousness. “Here”, however, is your physical body, a vehicle for “you” to experience human life.

In other words, “you” are “here”; your consciousness is inhabiting your physical body, which is the vessel allowing you this experience. Do you, like me, think this is probably the noetic wisdom inspiring the age-old concept of your body being your temple?

So the most complete answer to the question of why you are here involves remembering that “you” (your consciousness) are “here” (inhabiting your physical body to facilitate the experience of a human being alive on Earth). Every person on this planet is contextually creating, at all times, in every second, whether or not she knows it or believes it. Every person on this planet is collapsing the potential of the quantum field, in every single instant of her life, because that is what people do. You can’t stop collapsing the quantum field and contextually forming the material world if you try.

All “you” are doing “here”, in fact, is becoming more influential at something you’ve always done. So relax, you’re already an old hat at contextual creation; all “you” are doing “here”, right now, is becoming an All-Star in the game of “Grow a Greater You”.

His newest book, Why Quantum Physicists Play “Grow a Greater You”, a veritable blueprint for deliberate creators, is now available on Amazon and ready to guide your explosive growth.

“What are we believing that costs us our freedom, our happiness and the awareness of our own true nature, which is love?”—Byron Katie

My ship landed in Bermuda this morning. Even though the captain made lots of jokes about finding this little speck of an island in the middle of the huge Atlantic, his navigation equipment took us right to King’s Wharf, right on schedule.

Even though Captain Dimitrios wasn’t constantly manning the wheel (I know, because I sat next to him at dinner one night), we made it safe and sound.

All of us have navigation equipment. It works by setting a destination (a goal, an intention) and starting to move. It doesn’t even matter which direction you begin moving. Once you set sail (in any direction), the GPS will quickly tell you which way to go.

The problem with most of us is we set a goal and then immediately try to override the navigation equipment. We come up with our own ways to make things happen. We try to supervise every step of the process. We want to know NOW exactly how it’s going to work.

But here’s the deal. We CAN’T know. Our job is simple: make a goal, start moving and let the universe do the navigating.

How I lost weight on a Top Chef cruise to Bermuda

“Let us be glad that we will see what we believe and that it has been given us to change what we believe.” –A Course in Miracles

I’m on a cruise between New York and Bermuda with Spike Mendelsohn, Angelo Sosa and Ash Fulk. If those names don’t ring a bell, let me ding it for you. They’re former hot shots on Bravo’s popular cooking show, Top Chef. All three are drop-dead gorgeous.

As you can imagine, there’s going to be lots of amazing eating opportunities. I don’t want to miss a one of them.

So I’ve got this really cool opportunity to put my principles to the test.

The dominant paradigm would suggest that a) cruises and weight gain are synonymous and b) I have little choice but to add some poundage.

It’s an extremely popular belief. Very few would argue.

But what if I put my greatest power to work?

What if I submit to being a guinea pig for the greater good of humanity?

My greatest power, which also happens to be your greatest power, is love. Every moment we get the opportunity to love what’s in front of us: every person, every event, every seeming mishap.

Employing this superpower is the best use of a life—no matter what situation we find ourselves in.

My hypothesis is that if I love everything about this cruise (so far that’s a no-brainer), love myself more and more every moment (not always the easiest task) and love every morsel I put in my mouth, I will maintain my current weight. Heck, I’m declaring right here and now that I’m even going to drop a pound.

The challenge, of course, is letting go of guilt, letting go of everything my culture tells me—-that I should diet, that women my age have no choice but to gain weight, that going on a cruise is a recipe for looking as big as the whales on Spike Mendelsohn’s swimsuit. Long story! Don’t ask.

But I’m all about changing the dominant paradigm. So today is the first full day of the cruise. I’ve weighed myself at the Canyon Ranch Spa aboard the Celebrity Summit. I’m throwing guilt overboard, it’s about an hour until Angelo’s private cooking class and I’m loving every single moment.

I’ll be back in touch with my results.

Have a great week, my lovelies, and don’t forget to use your greatest superpower.

Align with Your Desires: a guest post by Cloris Kylie


“Seeing God in everything is the direct route. What does it take? This now!” ~ Byron Katie
taz art

Woo-hoo! After a fabulous near-month at home, I’m ready to embark on some new traveling adventures. I leave in a couple hours for Wilmington, North Carolina. If you’re anywhere near, come say “hi!” tomorrow at the Unity Church where I’ll be speaking from 7 to 9. On Sunday, I sail from New York to Bermuda with America’s Top Chefs. Can someone say delicious?

In the meantime, I’ve got lots of friends here in cyberspace who can fill in for me on the blog. Enjoy this post from Cloris Kylie. She even mentions the nocebo effect, the evil twin of the placebo effect which happens to be one of the experiments in the new book.

Take it away, Cloris!

As an avid cyclist, I’ve met most of the riders in town. Some of these athletes ride state-of-the-art bicycles three times lighter than mine. Early on a Sunday morning, I was riding downhill when one of the cyclists with a fancy bike passed me by.

“No coasting!” he yelled.

I scrunched up my face. Coasting? I’m not coasting!

I switched my attention to my motionless legs during this part of the ride. The guy is right. I am coasting, I thought.

I pedaled, and started to gain speed. Now I looked like a real athlete. My ego was satisfied.
But I had stopped enjoying the scenery.

During the rest of the ride, I couldn’t take my attention away from whether I was pedaling or not. The harder I tried not to notice my legs, the more attention I paid to them.

I thought of the countless times somebody mentions a supposed flaw in ourselves that previously wasn’t an issue but becomes an issue once we are aware of it.

I also thought of the “nocebo effect,” a term used to describe what often happens when we’re prescribed a medical drug and read its supposed side effects. We read, “Headache and abdominal pain may occur,” and moments after, our head hurts and our stomach cramps.

It all comes down to our chosen subject of attention.

The power of this knowledge is that we have the choice to align with stimuli that instead of hurting us, helps us manifest the kind of life we desire. Here are some strategies that have worked for me and might work for you, too.

Avoid starting and ending your day by watching the news. You can remain informed about what’s happening in the world, but choose to gather the information at times when it will have less power over your overall outlook on life.

Wake-up time is your opportunity to gather positive momentum to create a joyful day, and bedtime is your chance to feed good-feeling stories to your subconscious mind.

Also, avoid watching news and stories that won’t serve you. Do you really need to know the gory details of the latest murder or car accident?

Raise the energy vibration of those around you. When people bring up what is wrong about the world or about you, either change the topic or ask them what they would feel if the circumstances were the complete opposite. When people visualize a favorable outcome, they are uplifted and less likely to continue focusing on the negative.

If you don’t want to hear bad news, don’t seek them. This means no asking for details when people complain, and avoiding websites that make you conclude your tension headache is sign of a terminal disease.

Use your negative emotions as a gauge. Your feelings will tell you whether you need to switch your attention to something different. When you experience a hint of fear, anger, or sadness, switch to a thought that makes you feel better about yourself or about the situation (even if this good-feeling thought is related to something different.)

Act promptly when you realize you need to switch your point of attention. A negative thought will attract another negative thought, which will attract another negative thought and so on. It’ll be a lot easier to switch thoughts when they haven’t gained momentum.

In my case, feeling anxious about “no coasting” should have alerted me that I needed to remove my attention from how fast I was pedaling. By the time I realized I needed to think of something different, the momentum of the anxiety-producing thought had become too strong to stop it.

Create a habit to focus on what is right about your life. If placing your attention on a flaw magnifies it, focusing on the gifts in your life will make these gifts grow and multiply. As Pam Grout says in the New York Times bestseller E-Squared, “…by changing what you look for, you can radically change what shows up in your world.”

What can you appreciate at this moment? Focus on that. When I wake up, the first words that come out of my mouth are, “Thank you!”

If you choose to make goodness the focus of your attention, the negativity and drama in your life will progressively and surely fade away.

Our thoughts have the power to instantly release positive energy, or to entangle energy.”—Michele Longo-O’Donnell

I’m reading Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book, You are the Placebo. Here’s the fifth sentence: “On a beautiful Southern California day in April, I had the privilege of being run over by an SUV in a Palm Springs triathlon.”

Say what? The privilege of being run over? That day, when he broke six vertebrae, changed his life forever. The work he’s doing now as a speaker, author and researcher would never have happened without the experiment he conducted after doctors told him his one chance of ever walking again was to have a very complicated Harrington rod surgery.

He was 23, just cocky enough to think, “I am going to heal myself. I am going to put all my conscious attention on this intelligence within me. I am going to surrender to this greater, unlimited power and allow it to heal me.”

Doctors, of course, thought he was plum nuts. But nine and a half weeks after the accident, he walked back into his life—without a body cast or surgery. Within ten weeks he was again seeing patients at his chiropractic clinic and training with weights.

No matter what happens in our lives, we have the choice of how we will interpret it. For me, it only makes sense to proclaim “This is the best thing that ever happened to me.” No matter what it is.

Yesterday, a treasured member of one of my power posses told two stories that perfectly illustrate this principle.

She lives on a farm, by herself, and noticed last week there were hundreds of wasps swarming her grill. Sure enough, she opened the grill and found a wasps’ nest as big as a Frisbee. At first, like any sensible person, she panicked and began pacing. But only for a short time. Only long enough to remember this important truth: “I have control over the energy I put forth into the universe and this is not what I want to emit.”

She calmly let go of her wasp dilemma and said to the universe, “Okay, this is your deal. I’m going to trust this will all work out.”

On Friday, she noticed the wasps were no longer circling. Very gingerly, she opened the grill and the Frisbee-sized wasp nest was gone. Disappeared. No longer.

That same week, her car broke down on the side of the highway. Her phone, she noticed, had two percent power left. Once again, she started to panic. But again realized, “I only want to put out clear, trusting energy.”

On a hunch, she pulled down her visor and a card fell out. She’d completely forgotten she had AAA roadside assistance. And with her 2 percent phone power, she called and patiently waited while a very slow-talking operator finally took down her details. Within 10 minutes, a tow truck showed up, delivered her car to a repair shop and took her safely to where she needed to be.

The next day her car was ready and, when she pulled out a card to pay, was told: “No charge. Your car’s still under warranty.”

“Under warranty?” she said. “My car is more than 10 years old.”

Not only that, but the tow truck driver asked her out on a date.

So I ask you? What energy do you put out when things do not appear to be working in your favor? It’s always your choice.

Today’s weather forecast: good times ahead for all.


“If we believe that the sun and moon hang in the sky for our delight, there will be joy upon the hills and gladness in the fields.”—Helen Keller

My friend, Jay, a fabulous life coach, dad and all-around great guy, calls unexplainable mysteries “sneaky Jesus.”

Here are a couple sneaky Jesus moves from the past couple days.

A daughter of a friend of mine is down in Louisiana or Mississippi or one of those southern states making bamboo bicycles. She’s an architect student and well, why not? Anyway, she left her beloved kitten with my friend who, for about three days, couldn’t find the derned thing. She called the kitten, she tried to lure it out with milk, did all the things any totally desperate person would do to find a prized missing pet. One day, while trying to get her mind off the explanation she was going to give to her daughter when she returns home, my friend was sitting on her bed, fiddling with her I-pad, and out of nowhere, the kitten jumps in her lap. The doors and windows were all closed. She has no idea where the missing cat came from.

Another friend misplaced her favorite bracelet on a cruise. She had taken it off while showering and it disappeared. She and her cabin mate both spent considerable time trying to find it. It was nowhere to be found. A couple days later, while on a shore excursion, my friend looks down and voila!, there were three bracelets (she started the day with one) on her arm, one of which was the missing bracelet.

And this last Sneaky Jesus dropped into my inbox this morning from a reader of E-Squared. Here’s what she says:

“After an earlier attempt at applying the exercises in E-squared, I returned to the book to give it a second shot. I’m one of those “totally gets LOA in theory, but is way too analytical and therefore sucks at application” types. But yesterday, I got my miracle.

I was on my second day of the VW Jetta principle. Was looking for Fiats because I really want a cute little Fiat to drive around the city. Saw one on the first day, in a really weird way. But just one. Set my intention to look out for Fiats on my road trip the next day.

Yesterday, I show up at the car rental to pick up a car. The lady at the desk casually asks, “How about a Fiat?” My jaw dropped. Time to stop playing small. I didn’t want to see a Fiat, I wanted to drive a Fiat!!

So, thanks for a great book and sharing your perspective with the world. Good times ahead for us all.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.
