Don’t buy your diagnosis

“Reality is so vast that there is no way from our small place in the universe to see it all. We create cultural constructs of our knowledge and try and make the whole vast infinite universe fit in our tiny little boxes.”
― Lyssa Danehy deHart

Whatever affliction you believe about yourself is a hoax. It’s a tiny box that you continue to animate by your belief in it.

I know it seems like stone-cold fact that you are depressed or financially challenged or still suffering the aftermath of something your parent did or didn’t do.

But it’s just not true.

It seems true because you’ve collapsed the wave of that reality. In the quantum world, the observer (that’s you expecting and believing things are a certain way) interacts with all the possible superpositions (the world’s unlimited possibilities). Once you collapse the wave (the particular state or affliction you’ve been colluding with), all other possibilities vanish. As you feed those thoughts, that one reality grows more and more solid.

So if you really insist on believing in your affliction, just make sure to couch it like this:

I am temporarily having thoughts about being depressed. Or being poor. Or_________________.

And know those thoughts are one tiny possibility and that there are even more superpositions (possibilities) where you are ecstatically happy and financially secure and completely free from anything at all that occurred in your past.

The superposition you feed with your attention is the one you will animate into your life.

So which wave do you choose to collapse today: That you’re a hot mess? Or that you’re hot shit?

Do you live in problem state or possibility state?

“The fact that the field exists changes everything we’ve believed about our role in creation.”—Gregg Braden
Thanks to flat-screen technology, our television sets are no longer shaped like boxes. But they still show us a “box of life” that is limited and constrictive.

For every piece of “news” you watch on TV, there are millions of other possibilities. The conscious mind can only pay attention to one observational frame at a time. So instead of investing in the teensy reality shown on TV, I prefer to ask “What if?”

“What might happen in the next moment?”
“What is possible if I let go of everything I know?”
“How would life be if I surrendered all my beliefs?”
“What if everything is absolutely perfect?”

The only reason your life looks the same today as it did yesterday is because that’s what you’re looking for.

The only reason the news seems so negative is because that’s where we invest our energy.

Playing make-believe, as we did as children, is a much holier tact. In fact, what we see and believe as “reality” now is simply what we’re currently “making believe” is true.

Once you loosen the rules and let go of all those “facts” you learned in school, all the patterns you picked up from your family and culture, you will begin to see a whole different reality.

Right now, you’re stuck in habitual patterns of perception. You miss all kinds of miracles because you focus on what is “known.” You believe in the stringent “rules for life” that have been given you. Those arbitrary rules encase you in a little box that’s not much bigger than that flat-screen TV.

My new intention is to notice what is different and new. To think about extraordinary things and to continually ask questions about what is possible.

When we change our consciousness around what is possible, rather than being limited by a reality construct dominated by what isn’t possible, we discover that we are actually able to employ quantum energies and principles in our day-to-day lives in unexpected, and fun–and miraculous–ways.

Cultivate the habit of asking powerful, mind-altering questions.

By asking open-ended questions, you train your right brain to respond to signals from your subconscious.

If you ask questions such as “Why can’t I do this?,” you cultivate the skill of obtaining useless data. It’s important to quit focusing on what’s the same, what’s familiar. Any situation in your life is nothing but a pattern of light and information.”

To change anything in your life, change the frequency, density, and or quality of the light patterns that make up that reality.

Here are some “what if” questions to help change the light patterns:

“What if cancer could be healed instantly?”
“What if I wake up tomorrow and look younger?”
“What if my future is only going to get better and better every year?”
“What if I start each day with a completely clear slate?”

When you ask different questions, apply a different reference frame, you get different—and I would suggest better—information.

It’s like a deck of cards. Pick a reality, any reality.

Are you willing to allow the possibility of an unrecognizable new world?

“I signed up for the Olympics of internal freedom and happiness.”—Grace Bell

Will Smith once said that all successful people have the delusional quality of believing something different can happen.

Most of us, instead, get stuck in expectation loops. We continue looking for and expecting the same things as yesterday.

But here’s the thing. Today is a brand-new day with an infinite number of new possibilities.

Whoever took over for Ed McMahon could knock on your door with the winning check in the magazine sweepstakes. You could make a new friend or meet a potential S.O. You could get an idea for a book or a song or a nonprofit that might change the lives of millions.

The thing is, you never know. But because we get up every morning expecting the exact same thing, we get reruns of yesterday.

But what if you woke up to a world where everything was completely unrecognizable? Are you willing to allow that possibility? The possibility that the world’s largesse could flow into your life? The possibility that we could have peace on Earth? And that all children could go to bed with a full stomach knowing they were deeply loved and cherished?

In the interest of unrecognizable new possibilities, thought I’d share some cool stories that have recently proven to me that whatever happened in the past has no bearing on today.

1. Rihanna’s people called.. “Last month, a friend shared your book Thank & Grow Rich on Instagram. I’m not much for reading books that don’t involve beauty or makeup (I have a comprehension problem and it takes me a long time to read a book versus others). But without much thought, I immediately subscribed to Audible and decided to “listen” your book.

“Your book has been such an eye opener for me, you have no idea! I can’t thank you enough!! I got a call back for a second round of interviews for Global Makeup Artist position for Rihanna’s new makeup line! I made it to the top 50 and beat out over 1500 other artists that applied for the job.”

2. Fresh coconuts in Belgium in the middle of winter. “Reading E-Squared, I thought of challenging the Universe by ordering a coconut in the middle of winter. Before this, I’d never seen coconuts at our local grocery store. Hannah, my nanny, and I went for our weekly grocery shopping tour while the kids were in school. And I couldn’t believe it! There, in between the fresh fruits was an entire BOX full of coconuts!!! In the middle of winter in Belgium. Hannah had to slap me as I was speechless and couldn’t move. That’s how surreal it felt to me! And after that I just keep on ordering and without fault, each order has come in the most hilarious ways.”

3. A lottery win. “I just wanted to say that reading your book has provided me with much appreciated positive reciprocation, and universal confirmation. I read your book recently and after asking for the “sign” or for divine communion(FP), I won the lottery. It was in the thousands, nothing to retire on but certainly a sign. Also a way to tie up any or all looming debts. I had lucid dreaming and other profound experiences since this and just wanted to say… You were meant to write this book. You wrote it, in such a way that it was perfectly, timed, simple and encapsuled our fundamental rights as beings on this planet.”

4. Universe giving clear signs. “This is the best 222 story you will ever hear!!

“So ….. I asked the universe to provide me with some 222’s along with the other things requested for that experiment – I had manifested the other things so the next morning I was a little bit impolite really and demanded some 222’s. Well needless to say I was swamped – I found them everywhere.

“That night after work I received a package addressed to my husband and on enquiring with him they were apparently some number plates he had had on hold for 35 years. So I opened them and you guessed it – BMW 222. How did my husband know that 35 years ago his wife (which he hadn’t even meet) would be looking for proof of her manifestion skills in the form of three numbers??? I don’t really know or even care how it works Those numbers have become a way that I can ‘talk’ to the universe. Thanks for your books – I just love them and you for writing them. Love, Sally.”

Thank you, Sally, and everyone else who has written to share their miracle story.

Life-changing reminder to tattoo upon your body

“I don’t have issues. I have subscriptions.”—Greg Tamblyn 


I’ve noticed an odd tendency among readers of my books. Some of them make the disturbing assumption that I have my s*%t 100 percent together.

While that’s certainly a beautiful notion and, in Truth, we are all perfect, beautiful, loving agents for God, I sometimes forget.

So here’s the tattoo-worthy reminder:

Successful people feel fear and doubt and have bad ideas.

It’s vital to remember this. Because when we feel fear or doubt or have a bad idea, we too often decide there’s something wrong with us and that we’ll never write that book or find that relationship or do the thing that our heart is bugling out for us to do.

I gain the strength to follow my heart’s bidding by hanging out regularly with what I now call my possibility posses (nee: power posses). As songwriter Greg Tamblyn reminded us yesterday, everybody needs to find a group of abnormal people to commune with.

We’re abnormal in that we tell stories that defy what society tells us in normal. We tell stories about miracles and possibilities. We witness to the fact that when we get on the right frequency, the bigger thing has plenty of room to work with us, to guide us, to bless us. And when one of us is having an “issue” or even a “subscription,” the others of us can gently point out that: “yep, that’s one story. But there are a gazillion others.”

All of us are all full of stories. Why not be abnormal and choose the ones that instill peace and joy and light?
