Hi, thanks for coming here.
I have finally created my own blogsite and would love to have you visit.

Thanks so much for being in my life.
It’s one thing to know what you want. It’s another to stop there because of your “but…” conversation. You may not even realise that’s what’s delaying your manifestation. I just recently answered a comment on the 7 Days Video course and here is my response to someone waiting for over a year while visualising his dream lifestyle and clearly knowing what he wants:
Hi Andrew, thanks for the background details, they help me in understanding your question fully. YES! Let go now. To your mind it may feel like giving up or moving on, but you are 100% right that the Universe is being ‘interrupted’ from moving things toward you as you continually keep visualising. It’s a fine line though: It’s a combination of visualising WITH the emotion of what it feels like to live in that life, everyday. I think maybe you haven’t yet fully aligned inside to allowing yourself to receive it. That’s not a critism, though. It takes a couple of quick conversations or ‘communes within’ to ask yourself some questions about what it would feel like to live on a beautiful beach every day of your life and be happy there. “Am I willing to have that life every day?” “What is the flavour (feeling) of my life in that dream?” THEN notice what negatives are still floating around about the possibilities of YOU being in that life. Sometimes we don’t realise that we aren’t ready to receive because there are other relationships, family obligations or opinions, perceived complications still lingering within our ideal life image. Be brave enough to look at what you’ve made it mean to live that life.
I am telling you this because recently when I asked for Ease & Grace, Peace & Prosperity – two things came up – fear of boredom, and needing to work diligently to deserve it before it comes. So I tried on boredom, and saw – for the first time – this constant, nagging restlessness within me. Since restlessness doesn’t equal peace, and fear of boredom kept me from what I wanted, I CHOSE. I chose powerfully, emotionally, and dropped the old chains that had been driving my personality. Then it allowed me to ALIGN within to what I truly wanted: Ease & Grace, Peace & Prosperity. Harmony. I could FEEL the difference as a YES inside.
Then each night I wrote 3 things to appreciate 1.Past 2.Present 3.Future. My Future thanks was in the past tense, and I repeated the same one each night: “Thank you for my ease and grace, peace and prosperity, health and vitality, fun and laughter. It took about 2-3 weeks, during which time my life fell apart, in order to fall together into exactly that.
Hope that helps you allow your wildest dreams into your daily life.
Remember to go beyond imagining with emotion and look at the “but…” voice that may be waiting for encouragement to let go.
Abundant blessings of riches to you, Lori
Getting what we want in life seems to be a secret desire of 45 million people a month. Google confirms this on the popular searches and I can totally understand that people want to know how to get what they desire. Even though we try to appear selfless, our true desire is self-serving. It is only in a world of misdirected teachings that we think this is bad.
If you even try to give others what they want, it is only your perception and interpretation of what they want. Pleasing others and trying to understand them by thinking of them before you, will only cause more misunderstandings and at the end your cup is empty.
So go for it! Go after what you want in life. Spend your entire life dedicated to getting what you want. Just notice that when others around you are doing the same thing, and they are clear on that, you will come to an interface in the relationship of either matching or mismatching. Know why this occurs. Look at your values and make sure that your desires are from your values, not your addictions, ego and fears. Then stay true to your values, and understand other people have different values. Say goodbye if the mismatch is too great, or surrender to your own values of harmony and community, for as long as it serves you.
When my relationships are challenged by this dilemma, I always have a choice. I can either bully and manipulate others with an attitude of “my way or the highway” or I can go to one of my other values to find cooperation and compromise to get what I want in some way. There is a cause and effect to every action.
I may not have gotten the exact holiday location I wanted, but the result is my family is happier when I had to stretch further than just getting what I wanted, and expand to include the needs of these other VIPs in my life. It doesn’t mean that I sacrificed my wants and needs; I just explored them with a wider, more inclusive viewpoint after input from others. Then I included the needs of others and re-prioritized some other important personal values of family harmony, respect and contribution.
Never sacrifice your desires to others when they are based on your personal values and choose another personal value that serves you and everyone else when it is time. You’ll know the difference as you explore more about what it means to be a human being today.
When I was 12 years old my family moved four hours’ drive East, from Detroit to Toronto, Canada. So much in my world changed and something strange had happened; I crossed an invisible line called an international border and I felt like I was on another planet. The fear, hopelessness and distrust of the 1970’s in Detroit opened up to the optimism of immigrants in a fast growing and accepting environment with the warm attitudes and friendliness of Canadians. I was only a short drive away, but the place was clean, strangers said hello to you, and that was suddenly safe and acceptable.
Eventually I learned about the Universal Laws and how life really works – and it occurred to me that the way people think comes from what they believe, but beliefs still had nothing to do with the real Laws of Life, which do not change with circumstances or attitudes.
Beliefs create all the limitations in your life.
Once you have a set idea about something, possibilities for new options are restricted or cut off. Conscious awareness of your beliefs can allow you to sift through them and open up to new frontiers in life.
Where do we form beliefs? The source comes from three influences or degrees:
1st Degree: Experience.
We make conclusions about life from repeated painful or fulfilling experiences; right or wrong, we begin to see life through a filter of these decisions and they gain power and momentum. “I always…” “I never…” become truth, for us.
2nd Degree: Experience of others.
Our parents, teachers, friends and mentors influence us by their harsh or gentle guidance, by witnessing their repetitive behaviours and mistakes and by their stories. We hear their rules about how they think life works and we shorten our learning curve to save time and pain. But their experiences are sometimes not up to date with our world nor in sync with our values. Yet their words are often recorded in our thoughts and replay on auto pilot without us recognizing the source or checking the relevance.
3rd Degree: Dogma.
Teachings, sayings and perspectives from another time long ago can be irrelevant. Religious indoctrination, some ancient teachings handed down, old clichés, sayings that are repeated but not understood and even some laws of the land do not apply to our urgent need to do things differently, right now.
The opposite of belief is possibility.
What is possible when you consider new ideas and new beliefs? It’s time to learn a healthy disrespect for beliefs, so you can choose which are useful, and expand or release any outdated. Knowing the difference can help you to clear out the old and learn that life is a creative process and old limits do not work well for you in a world as fast moving as ours. Challenge your beliefs, and then find the ones that you want to be true, because your beliefs become your life.
“Affirmations” are usually focused on what you don’t have, or how you are not yet behaving. With that insight, can you understand why affirmations are an uphill battle for many people who are disciplined enough to repeat them daily?
The trick to being free with affirmations and having them work for you, not confirm against you, is your perspective. Before you set an affirmation, think about what you want, and consider if you think it’s possible for you to actually receive it someday. If that’s a big yes, then go ahead and get excited about the day you experience the satisfaction of achieving whatever you are affirming.
However, if your reaction to an affirmation sounds like “that’s a lie” then you have your answer about why the affirmation is slowing you down, not speeding up your manifesting. You are not being reasonable with your mind power – your subconscious – and so it throws it out as irrelevant. Go through an exercise to see whether you can make it reasonable.
First, check if you really want it; sometimes we think we want something, but it is to please other people. Sometimes it was someone else’s dream and we thought that would make us happy. If you know you truly want it then use it in a way that allows you to have it or become it gradually. So instead of saying “I am a millionaire” you can say “I am beginning to live a millionaire lifestyle” or “I am a millionaire in thoughts and words.” Or if being a millionaire really shows up as too much of a stretch for your mind right now, try “I am manifesting more and more money into my life every day.”
This viewpoint changes your energy of intention and you begin to get excited about the outcome, not the process. You can then get busy in life and let the affirmation simmer and percolate through your sending and receiving faculties, ready and open to grab new opportunities and inspirations.
Once you begin to see changes in your circumstances in wonderful new directions, take that as a green light to ramp up your affirmations to a new level. Now you are working with a “Yes” and affirmations can free you to do what they were intended, which is to say “Yes” to a clear and focused desire leading you to your dreams…not focused on what you don’t have or how you are not yet behaving.
This way your subconscious is getting reasonable orders in the direction aligned with your dreams, step by step. Can you now accept it affirmatively? See, that is the basis of the word affirmation – affirmative.
“This should be easy!” we say. “Why is this not working for me?” Change comes through three stages of transformation, and it’s useful to understand how change works and why we resist change so that you can swing with the pendulum of change until your transformation is complete. The first stage is becoming aware of a behaviour and its costs. The second stage is, with this awareness, making a new choice in any moment. The third stage is to follow through with that choice until it becomes a habit.
Do you find it hard to change yourself and your habits? There is a reason for that. We are designed to be open, curious and in awe of the world. We are conditioned, however, to become repeatable, consistent workers. Our schooling was designed in the previous Age, the Industrial Revolution. It was a time of high demand for mass manufacturing. Workers were needed who could be consistent and repeat tasks during gruelling 14 hour days. Skills as factory workers allow masses to enter a new era of working away from sustenance family farms, providing more for families. It wasn’t a perfect human rights world; far from it. But our world as we know it was built upon those foundations.
We live in a time of immense change. The emerging world is the Age of the Mind. We are now exploring what it means to be a human being and we have begun this Age through technology. We want to explore new frontiers everywhere. Our human social lag is catching up. We are ready to let go of repeating history. We are ready to accept that there’s more to life than our five senses. We are open to expanding our thinking and creating from our minds out of new possibilities, as we choose them; not just geniuses or inventors, but all of us.
So, we start on a bold new path, and things in our life begin to change; new options begin to show and we get excited. Then… the dreaded block or barriers come up. We procrastinate. We self-sabotage. We receive ridicule, discouragement and downright condemnation about our new efforts. We fall back. We make mistakes. We do the same old, same old, and we even give up the possibilities of a new life, because the effort is just too much.
If you truly wish to live in awareness and enter new frontiers of living, know that the pendulum of change swings back and forth. Learn that these three stages are normal. Although you may not have been conditioned for this Age, it will become easier over time, with your choices coming from the moment of NOW, again and again, until you and your life become a reflection of your new choices. Then the pendulum slows, settles and finally stops and you have that ease and flow again, at a new level of experience. Stay the course. It is the way back to living fully.

This year has been a long year for me, and now that we are at the end I can say that my results are so personally satisfying that I find myself in a wonderful state of contentment. I understand that ever more is unfolding so that I can continue to reach, stretch and expand. But as I look back at the year I can see 4 Key Beliefs that I honestly faced and finally released, producing very fast manifestations beyond anything before.
Old Belief #1: My new 4 bedroom luxury home is not here yet! It should be here already.
I had spent the last two years visualizing the perfect home and writing it down. I had photos of my ‘dream home’ on a daily manifesting movie. I had been looking at the outcome as that particular house with detailed features. In November it came to such urgency that I had to dig deeper. By then we had outgrown our 3 bedroom standalone townhouse; my oldest son was finishing high school and my youngest was starting a new school in January. I had worked energetically on releasing many, many (many) issues brought up by my strong desire to move including my feelings of frustration, residual fears from childhood around loss of home, grief and risk. In addition I had created huge emotional challenges at our home Resort with disagreements and security issues. But I continually worked on my emotions as they came up. I saw them as the gateway blocking me from what I truly wanted. When I finally stopped trying to work on doing it my way (figuring out how to sell our home first) I got down to what I really wanted NOW, and that was simply to MOVE! I then walked around saying “we are moving, we are moving, we are moving”. I put pictures of people moving boxes on our fridge and imagined being happy with moving. Within 2 weeks I found myself amongst boxes packing up a friend’s kitchen. I realized the connection and laughed. At first I was going to say “no, it’s supposed to be me!” but then I accepted that this was a wonderful movement toward exactly what I wanted. I trimmed the strangers’ faces out of the photos and affirmed ‘yes’ to this movement. Not more than 2 weeks later my husband was talking to a friend who wanted to lease out his luxury house and it all fell together incredibly quickly after that. We effortlessly moved the week before Christmas, even getting tenants into our townhouse very quickly. We did not have to wait for the market to change or a singular perfect buyer. We now have our own pool, our own beach, a gorgeous outdoor Bali hut, 4 large bedrooms plus a study for my office. We live on “The Island” and I am feeling so grateful to the Universe for hearing all the details of my desires and answering them in so many ways. My boys are so happy here. My husband and I wake up looking at the dawn sky over the pool and lake. My old belief was transformed into “Oh, yes, of course it’s coming NOW” before it happened.
Old Belief #2: I am afraid I might become arrogant about being rich beyond my wildest dreams.
I didn’t even know I had this belief hanging around until I had a workshop participant bring it up as her fear of getting rich. Since the people around me reflect my thoughts, I did some energy work in this area and was surprised that I was afraid of my own power. Now that I have received a huge part of my luxury dream, I can say that I feel more humbled than anything. I am so content as I watch my family together exploring this new way of living. I am inviting my friends to come and play and it feels like an extension of my life; like a new exciting chapter.
Old Belief #3: It’s ok to be in debt. Lots of people use debt to get ahead.
Over this last year, this has been a significant part of my journey, because two years before, in 2008 I had challenged an old belief that “debt is bad”. I chose to get back into personal debt, even after we had become mortgage free. We bought a beautiful Toyota Prius Hybrid and it felt great. We still love this car and the freedom it gives in contributing to a new breed of auto technology. I also invested in my business and took some wonderful personal development courses, plus became a certified Success Coach by flying over to the States and being trained by a highly regarded Master Coach who was Tony Robbins’ producer for eight years. She also developed coaching programs for John Gray, Stephen Covey and Bob Proctor among others. It was well worth it to gain so much from her expertise on not only coaching, but how to market high level leadership coaching powerfully. Then, two years down the track, the interest rates in Australia began to climb. There were six (6!) consecutive interest rate hikes over 8 months, and suddenly the amount I paid for my debt became significantly more. It really caught me off guard, because it suddenly felt like a real lack of freedom. Even though the debt and interest amounts were insignificant compared to others with large mortgage debts, I had to face my feelings about debt. I then released so much energy around being in debt and being out of control of finances. It was all old stuff and I was so ready to release it. I did my worldly research on the credit system of the world as the stock market crash played out. I got the information I needed to make much more powerful decisions in my life, and finally, I made a commitment to switch to cash. What a learning, both within and without! The home had to manifest without a mortgage or any debt, and it did exactly that, perfectly!
Old Belief #4: Abundance looks like spending without thinking about it.
I was not switching to debit cards and cash because I could not get credit. Instead, I learned especially that the wealthiest people on this planet are good stewards of wealth and to them, abundance is not just throwing money around or spending without thinking; quite the opposite (thanks to Eben Pagan among others for this wonderful lesson on how to FLOW my wealth as it comes in and goes out). My Step 7 speaks of Circulation and how it works. I have always had a healthy respect for getting value for my money. Now I spend, save or share with freedom, because I am clear on my needs being met by the FLOW of cash. I do not spend until the money is manifested there. This is so important because in hindsight the Circulation principle only works powerfully when money moves in the NOW. When we spend from the Future energy we are going against Universal principles of Flow and there is ALWAYS, ALWAYS (ALWAYS) a reckoning day. I must manifest in the NOW when I have a desire. Now that I have aligned myself with this wonderful way the Universe works, I have clarity about when the time is NOW to spend, and when I need to do my internal work to increase the inflow and manifest powerfully. This way I have been graced to experience what a great co-creator I am when I am aligned. It is awesome and I invite you to consider some of these learnings.
During 2010 with each old belief that I truthfully explored, many challenging circumstances and feelings came up. What I did to release those feelings was to allow them to be there, and then used energy releasing techniques to experience them and let them go.
There are three parts to creating the life of your dreams:
1. Know the steps to Creating (SPEED Manifesting™ inclusively covers all seven steps).
2. Know what slows you.
3. Know what to do when you are slowed.
I know how to create. I have that process down pat, and SPEED Manifesting™ was developed from my success at repetitively getting consistent results. However when we have beliefs in the way, we need to go within and deal with those so that the natural Creative Process can work its magic. It really is simple and you can move step by step toward even your biggest dreams.
If anyone tries to complicate it, then they have not yet come to the Truth of How Life Works and How Human Beings are Designed. Once you learn and practice the 7 Steps of SPEED Manifesting™, work on your internal energy-thinking-feelings. This is the necessary “work”. Everything else then flows and unfolds without effort, very quickly.
2011 is already looking great!
The Master was walking through the fields one day when a young man, a troubled look upon his face, approached him.
“On such a beautiful day, it must be difficult to stay so serious,” the Master said.
“Is it? I hadn’t noticed,” the young man said, turning to look around and notice his surroundings. His eyes scanned the landscape, but nothing seemed to register; his mind elsewhere. Watching intently, the Master continued to walk.
“Join me if you like.”
The Master walked to the edge of a still pond, framed by sycamore trees, their leaves golden orange and about to fall.
“Please sit down,” the Master invited, patting the ground next to him. Looking carefully before sitting, the young man brushed the ground to clear a space for himself.
“Now, find a small stone, please,” the Master instructed.
” A stone. Please find a small stone and throw it in the pond.” Searching around him, the young man grabbed a pebble and threw it as far as he could.
“Tell me what you see,” the Master instructed.
Straining his eyes to not miss a single detail, the man looked at the water’s surface.
“I see ripples.”
“Where did the ripples come from?”
“From the pebble I threw in the pond, Master.”
“Please reach your hand into the water and stop the ripples,” the Master asked. Not understanding, the young man stuck his hand in the water as a ripple neared, only to cause more ripples. The young man was now completely baffled. Where was this going? Had he made a mistake in seeking out the Master? After all he was not a student, perhaps he could not be helped? Puzzled, the young man waited.
“Were you able to stop the ripples with your hands?” the Master asked.
“No, of course not.”
“Could you have stopped the ripples, then?”
“No, Master. I told you I only caused more ripples.”
“What if you had stopped the pebble from entering the water to begin with?” The Master smiled such a beautiful smile; the young man could not be upset.
“Next time you are unhappy with your life, catch the stone before it hits the water. Do not spend time trying to undo what you have done. Rather, change what you are going to do before you do it.” The Master looked kindly upon the young man.
“But Master, how will I know what I am going to do before I do it?”
“Take the responsibility for living your own life. If you’re working with a doctor to treat an illness, then ask the doctor to help you understand what caused the illness. Do not just treat the ripples. Keep asking questions.” The young man stopped, his mind reeling.
“But I came to you to ask you for answers. Are you saying that I know the answers?”
“You may not know the answers right now, but if you ask the right questions, then you shall discover the answers.”
“But what are the right questions, Master?”
“There are no wrong questions, only unasked ones. We must ask, for without asking, we cannot receive answers. But it is your responsibility to ask. No one else can do that for you.”
Is it true that we swing wildly back and forth between two polar opposites when we are about to grow in that area? I hope so. I thought I was living in bliss and love, and released from fear. Yet it kept showing up as anger at times. These are my affirmations around fear and love:
When I lived in FEAR, I had a poverty mentality, never sure that the money would come
When I lived in FEAR, I trusted no one but myself and was afraid of other’s intentions
When I lived in FEAR, I competed with everyone to get the best place
When I lived in FEAR, I was not sure of the outcome being the right one
When I lived in FEAR, I lived in reaction
When I lived in FEAR, my opinions were me, and they needed defending
When I lived in FEAR, I wanted everyone’s approval, attention and acknowledgement
When I lived in FEAR, I wanted to control everyone, and everything around me
When I lived in FEAR, I had to make the RIGHT decision, so I hesitated
When I lived in FEAR, I did not trust my inner voice
When I lived in FEAR, I wasn’t sure that it would all turn out alright
When I lived in FEAR, I thought there was something wrong with me that needed fixing
And now that I live in LOVE, I accept the help being given to me everywhere
Now that I live in LOVE, I understand that I am not alone
Now that I live in LOVE, I know that I cannot get it wrong
Now that I live in LOVE, I see the lesson in everything
Now that I live in LOVE, I know that every step I take is the right step
Now that I live in LOVE, I accept my opinions as my ego and I can let them go and just be a listening
Now that I live in LOVE, I see, feel and know that God in spirit is within me
Now that I live in LOVE, all good things come to me
