When the Universe is aligned, all things are possible. Kismet, Karma, Synchronicity and Serendipity work together in unison to provide for us when we sometimes least expect it. Often it is there, but we are too blind to see. Blinded by stress, our jobs, our finances or our illnesses, we often miss what is right there in front of us.
If you are searching for something, wishing or dreaming for a certain reality, the Universe will open to you―if you are open to it. Patience and faith are an integral part to getting where you want to be. You may believe it is the right time, right place, but the Universe knows best.
There once was a young girl who dreamed to be a published writer. Every day she wrote, every week she sent out query letters and samples of her work, only to be rejected repeatedly. Eventually she gave up on her dream?her faith had died and her patience had dwindled into nothingness. Many years later, she realized that she was still a writer―nothing more, nothing less. Every job she had acquired had developed her writing abilities and skills. And her soul yearned once more to be what she most desired―a published author. This time, she sent out inquiries, investigated the field using skills she had learned in the last twenty years. She utilized the Internet and researched the markets, publishing companies and numerous sites.
Then she began to write the novel that had been 'haunting' her for two years. Within six weeks, she had a publisher, and within just over three months, her novel was complete. It was published shortly afterward. Success!
Some people have asked her: "Why now? Why were you published now?"
When I was younger, the Universe knew that I had talent but that it needed to be developed by experience. Reading my past works, I agree with the Universe.
How could I write about death when I had not experienced death? How could I write about loss when I had never lost anyone dear to me? How could I write about love when I had only experienced teenage infatuation, not the kind of love that would make you sacrifice everything―even your life?
The Universe knew the exact moment that I was meant to return to my passion of writing. The plan was there all along―I just simply couldn't see it. But I was led to a friend who did see it, who encouraged me and inspired me to write a story that needed to be told. It would not have been the same story if told years ago before I was ready, and before the Universe was ready for me.
Now I am ready! My time has come!
The Universe aligns itself in such a way that impossible is made possible. Just as a baker requires proper ingredients, carefully measured, and the correct temperature, we must sometimes wait for everything to be 'measured and correct' before we see the ultimate plan. Patience and faith! If we have both, great things can be achieved. The alignment of the Universe may take months...or years. But guard yourself against allowing the opportunity to slip through your fingers. Keep yourself focussed, be persistent and above all, have faith. When the Universe is aligned for you, you do not want to miss it.
When there is Universal alignment, ANYTHING is possible!

Personal Motivation: Without Struggle There Is No Progress
As each day ends and another begins, the words of Frederick Douglas ask us as individuals to recognize the relationships between life's daily struggles.
Thinking for Success - The Same Method Does Not Work For Everyone
I am always concerned that there are so many books available on the subject of being successful, but unfortunately many of these books are read and then discarded.
Creativity and Innovation Management - Motivation
Motivation in creativity and innovation is more important than personality traits. This is like possessing high intelligence ? one must be motivated to improve and apply it.
Grit or Grace?
The grit of life is hard to swallow. You make a presentation at the office and someone points out a small mistake. The traffic was terrible that morning and you were late to an important appointment. You rehearsed exactly what you wanted to say to your boss, but when the time came the mind went blank.
10 Ways to Kick the Procrastination Habit
I recently read about a survey (by the University of Chicago) which suggested that those who relish challenge are more likely to live up to 10 years longer than those who spend their lives inhibited by timidity.

The Secret to this Famous Singers Success
It seems the longer think we have, the longer we put off living the life we see in our heads.
Getting Out of the Zone!
We've probably all heard the famous movie quip, "why don't you wait here while I slip into something a little more comfortable". It's a comment to make most of our ears (particularly male ones!) stand up on end with the anticipation that the film has actually taken a turn for the better. In real life however, slipping 'into' something more comfortable can often lead to outcomes that are anything other than desirable.
Visualisation plays a very important role with the mind and body relationship. Visualisation and Imagination are quite similiar. Visualisation is the picturing power of your mind. Your mind is like a camera constantly taking pictures of things around you. You are the star of your show. There is no one to give orders to your mind. The images you hold in your mind will determine the kind of life you will lead. When you first start to work with visualisation it is normally the imagination that comes to play. Visualisation takes time and practise to acquire. When working with visualisation it is important that one practises regularly. Try to practise at the same time each day, by doing that it becomes a habit.
Live On Fire
Words seem inadequate to describe the beauty and abundance that surrounds us during the month of October in New England. It's as if Mother Nature has taken her paintbrush and with broad strokes has set the landscape ablaze in color.
Need Help? Look Within First
After eating a turkey and dressing sandwich for breakfast, I am raring to go! For those of you who wrote and asked where the article was last week, I appreciate the fact that you look for it! I apologize for missing it, and to make up for it I have posted on my website a web log and pictures of the barn raising party we had last week.

Journaling - A Tool for Healing and Growth
The word "journal" comes from the French. It dates back to the 14th century and means daily. As recently as April 26, 1999, "Newsweek" magazine ran an article entitled "Pen, Paper, & Power. Confessional Writing can be Good for You."

We Are Trying To
How many times have you heard this in your life? Perhaps you have said it yourself. We are trying to accomplish something here. We are trying to complete this programme. We are trying to change the attitudes of our employees. We are trying to finish so we can go on holiday. We are trying to get fit. We are trying to diet. We are trying to give up smoking/drinking/eating donuts or whatever.
Why Do 9 Out of 10 People Never Live Their Dreams?
When we were kids we all had dreams. There were no boundaries to our imagination and anything was possible. Do you remember your dreams? What happened to your dreams? Did life get into its way? Are we all to busy to use our imagination?

These Are The Good Ole Days
I am sitting here at a public access wireless location and can't help but listen to some of the conversations going on around me. One group of senior citizens is talking about "the good ole days" with a touch of whimsy in their voices. Makes you long for days gone by, right? Not exactly.
It can be challenging to think about going to the next level. Especially when you're completely overwhelmed by the thought of taking the next step. Are you catatonic? "Stuck on still"? Moving nowhere, fast?
