Happy New Year

I want to wish you a Happy New Year filled with lots of dreams, hopes and desires that you can manifest in 2012!

This has been an incredible year for me in co-creating the life that I have always dreamed of... It began with a desire to create a family, a home and a new car and ended with my marriage to a wonderful woman who is my lover, companion and "soul mate", a beautiful family, a nice house and a new car to boot! We had an amazing wedding at the Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, drove to our Honeymoon in my new Toyota Scion and celebrated our marriage in the magical setting of Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

Now, I told you all this not because I want to brag about what I was able to create, but because I know that you can do the same in your life and with very little effort. I was able to manifest these things without any dramatic changes in my life other than the shift I had in my awareness of the infinite Power and Presence that is readily available for my use to create what I desire. Through my awareness of spiritual laws and principles the universe supplied me with all that I needed to make my dreams come true.

The only thing that I did different than last year was to change my consciousness about what I could be, do and have in this life. The amazing thing is that I didn't even have to try to create anything, I just put into practice the laws and principles that I am going to be sharing with you in 2012 and left the rest to the universe to take care of. If I can create all that I have in the last year just by raising my consciousness, then you can too... there is no reason that you can't! There is nothing holding you back from all of your dreams, accept maybe YOU and now is the time to shift your consciousness to a new level and make 2012 the best year ever.

In my Spiritual Principles for Success Meet-up Group, I will be kicking off the new year with the reading of "Way of The Peaceful Warrior" by Dan Millman in our Book of The Month Club.  Throughout the month of January we will be discussing the book and seeing how we can utilize some of the lessons that the character, Dan Millman, learned from Socrates his spiritual guide so that we can take our life to a new level.

In February we will screen the movie that was based on the book "Way of The Peaceful Warrior". This movie will launch a monthly screening series of positive and uplifting films from "Spiritual Cinema Circle". I hope that you can find the time to participate in all of the activities that I have planned in 2012 and and really make an effort to shift your vibration in order to attract all of the things that you desire in your life! So join my blog now, before you forget, and let's make 2012 the remarkable year it was meant to be!

Miraculous Honeymoon

Before we left for our Honeymoon we paved the way by setting our intention to have a great time no matter what the Universe had in store for us.

We set out on our journey quoting Jennifer's favorite mantra, "Our life is lived in ecstatic union with the Divine"... and little did we know that we were about to discover many miracles along the way.

We had planned on leaving Los Angeles at 5:30 in the morning to beat the traffic and although we didn't get on the road until after 6:30, the roads were pretty clear and we made it to Lake Tahoe in record time. During the last leg of the trip we neglected to fill up on gas and found ourselves winding through the mountains on an empty tank with no gas station in sight. I had just ran out of gas the week before and the fear that we might not make it started to take over my mind. Jennifer on the other hand refused to go there and said that she will not entertain the idea that we will run out of gas on our honeymoon because it was not in alignment with our higher good. She quoted her mantra, "Our life is lived in ecstatic union with the Divine" and together we let go of that idea and just headed up the mountain taking in the beautiful scenery along the way. When we reached the summit, I just put the car in neutral and coasted all the way down the mountain to a gas station at the end of our destination.

Now I have to ask myself the question, "did our shift in consciousness, somehow add fuel to the empty gas tank in much the same way that the Christ, who's birthday we were celebrating that weekend, turn water into wine just by recognizing the bride and groom's higher "Good"? This I will never know for sure, but one thing is for certain, when Jen and I shifted our vibration from one of fear to one of faith we made it safely to our destination.

Our decision to focus on our "higher good" on our honeymoon paved the way for a miraculous weekend full of tiny little miracles that opened the door to a new way of life for the both of us.  I hope you can join me as I write about what I learned through these experiences and then use them for yourself as an example of how to create a miraculous life for yourself!
