Bombarded with miracles

“Your smarts, your talents, your good looks – take off these impediments and let us dance!” — Chelan Harkin Tomorrow, in my playshop with Mike Dooley, I’m going to share “techniques” for widening one’s miracle bandwidth. The term “technique” sounds rather didactic and I’ve never really felt like a “teacher” in any real definition of […]

Going up?

“My anthem is the feisty joy parade that goes from my heart to yours.”—Chelan Harkin So in this video (that I’m going to try to add to the bottom of this post), Mike Dooley asked for my elevator speech. I said something like, Gosh, “I guess I should write one” even though I know full […]

Appearances, be damned!

“Walk so lightly, my darling. On tiptoes with no luggage, completely unencumbered.”– Aldous Huxley If you’ve been here for awhile, at this celebration known colloquially as a blog, you know I live to share miracle stories. To me, they’re the equivalent of the 4-minute mile. They demonstrate that “hey, maybe there IS another possibility.” Maybe all […]

Law of Attraction Strikes Again

“Grace is always right there holding your hand.”—Jim Carrey When I first wrote E-Squared, when it was still called God Doesn’t Have Bad Hair Days, I had never heard the term Law of Attraction. This was in the early 2000’s before The Secret had become a household word. I was certainly practicing the Law of […]

Rewriting the “laws” that run my life

“It’s the inner world that needs adjusting, tweaking and plucking when the outer world fails to please.”—Mike Dooley As a travel writer, I often end up confronting customs and laws different than my own. In Singapore, for example, it’s illegal to hug in public. In Cannes, you can be arrested for wearing a Jerry Lewis […]

More miracles from the annals of magic and enchantment

“One of the greatest paradoxes of your physical senses is that your eyes actually show you what you believe, not what you see.”—Mike Dooley So I’m sitting in a French café in Mexico, having just finished a travel article on a Brazilian steakhouse I visited in the United States. What a small world! ACIM Lesson […]

Why I’m the luckiest person on the planet, Episode Can’t Keep Track

“I cannot quite embrace the gods of antiquity. Gods so petty as to feel threatened by human hubris, destroy Babel, chain Prometheus to a rock, etc. Nah. Look around: there are French cheese and wine, Mozart and Bossa Nova, love and sunsets…all ours for the taking. Surely, He/She/It loves us some.”—Vivian Allvin  Life’s many blessings, […]

Why I’m a whole lot richer than Donald Trump

“Molecules obey your thoughts, you know.”–Carlos Santana I didn’t make Forbes’ list of billionaires this year. Doubtful, I’ll make it next year either. But I do know a secret that makes me deserving of the list. I know with complete certainty that the world is limitless, abundant and strangely-accommodating. I also know that anything I […]

Use your “I Am” wisely: a guest post from Coach Linda Ryan

“Well, in Whoville they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day.”–Dr. Seuss Regulars to this blog know all about my series: “Why I’m the Luckiest Person on the Planet.” There’s Episode One, Two, Three, etc….. Today, one of the gazillion things I’m celebrating about my life is that Coach Linda […]
