So many of us give up on our dreams because we don't already know how to make them happen. We lack confidence in our past and faith in our future. We may be accused of "magical thinking" when we have no business plan to review or evidence that it will work out. We fear that the unknown will be filled with insurmountable obstacles. But, what if we are wrong? What if things can actually fall into place and result in tremendous joy and fulfillment?
I recommend this recent post by Author Dr. Joe Vitale entitled The How of Intention . I love that the how-to and to-do lists take a back seat. So does doubt and fear. Intention, faith and trust keep the door to possibility and manifestation open...and who knows what may be delivered? Its no longer called "magic" when we understand how it worked, and sometimes we only understand in hindsight.

If you hurry up...there is still time to sign up for the free 21 day meditation series by none other than my ongoing favorite Deepak Chopra! I was fortunate that a friend of mine turned me on to his last series.."Creating Love" which I found to be thought provoking, inspirational and soothing. Each guided meditation is no longer than 15 minutes, so its not so hard to find the time. A new one is e-mailed to you every day and is available for several days after in case you miss a day or two. I ended up buying the series so I could listen to it again, but the first time around is free!
The series that starts tomorrow is called "Creating Abundance" Here is the link to sign up:
Don't miss it!

They say when you die, you review your whole life passing before you. By definition then, anyone who has moved, changed jobs..changed at all, has experienced a death.. and rebirth of sorts. It is a major challenge to sort though all of the "stuff" (physical and emotional) and decide what is to be discarded and what is to be carried forward. Asking oneself if it is time to finally let go and give it up? or time to let go of the fear, and step up?

At least 70% of what we perceive as "taste" actually comes from our sense of smell. Our taste buds only can taste bitter, salty, sweet and sour flavors. It is actually the odor molecules from food that give us most of our flavor. That's why when we have a cold, food tastes pretty bland.
Pungent Christmas lilies with savory gravy? Vanilla candles with garlic mashed potatoes? I recommend either using unscented candles and flowers, or better yet, creating a centerpiece to compliment your meal.
HERE IS HOW TO MAKE A "SAVORY SCENTERPIECE" FOR YOUR HOLIDAY TABLE...
MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED:
Bunch of dense flowers with little or no scent. I used hydrangeas because they are full and easy to stick herbs in.
1-3 Fresh Herbs: some suggestions
It is best to make these at the last minute as some of these herbs may wilt.
STEP 1: Using your most flexible stemmed herb, place a generous bunch in a bowl or shallow vase and add water. Cilantro is used here.
If necessary, place a smaller bowl or glass of water in the center to weigh it down.
STEP 2 : Trim flowers and wrap stems with a rubber band forming a tight ball of blossoms
STEP 3: Place flowers in center of long stemmed herbs (directly into bowl or into smaller glass container)
STEP 4: Add sprigs of same or other herbs into the bouquet. It is not necessary for the herbs to reach the water if you do this part
shortly before the meal.
STEP 5: Just before seating your guests, rub some of the leaves in your "Scenterpieces"
to release the appetizing aromas!
