Issue Date: February 20, 2004


A special note to begin:
I am dedicating this issue to my dad, Morris Houlette. Not just because this is February, the month identified with love, but because I want him to know how grateful I am that he is on my team. He may not have always understood the driving forces behind my passions, he may not necessarily agree with the ideas I express, but he has always been delighted that I am following my dreams. You see, he believes. He believes in me. And he loves that I write this newsletter each month. There's few things better than to hear his chuckle on the phone telling me that he's amazed that I do this. To share a little story with you, one time he waited until we were alone, looked at me very seriously, sat me down at the kitchen table, and said he needed me to be honest with him. Then he said, "Now tell me the truth - do you really write all of that yourself?" (In case you're wondering, the answer is Yes!). So, Dad, thank you for your love and support. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for being who you are. Thank you for playing in my field of dreams. I love you, Dad. This one's for you…


I went to see the movie "Miracle" the first weekend it came out. Not once, but twice. I loved it. The Dream, the Vision, the Commitment, the Determination, the Spirit. Most of all, I loved the message: BELIEVE.

Believe in the possibilities of life. Believe in yourself. Believe that your dream, too, can come true.

Believe that you deserve to have the very best life has to offer. Believe in the wonderful giving nature of the Universe. Believe that the Universe wants you to have everything you desire. Believe in miracles.

The truth is that I loved the movie because it took me on a wonderful ride back to a time when everything seemed possible. It also took me back to the early morning (4 and 5 a.m.) ice hockey practices for my son, when we were willing to do whatever it took to let him live his dream and passion. Kurt Russell was there, too, at the Culver Ice Rink with his son.

It all begins with a dream, a vision of excellence. Then focusing your attention on that vision until it becomes so clear that you can see it, feel it, taste it, touch it, smell it, know it. Along with that vision, taking the consistent actions with commitment and determination to bring your dreams into reality. And, then, expecting the miracles to happen.

I don't want to spoil the movie for those of you who haven't seen it, but let me just say that each person prepared themselves mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. They didn't let disappointments or challenges stand in their way. They were willing to do whatever it took to reach their dreams.

And the miracles happened….

This last weekend I watched the movie "Field of Dreams". Not once, but twice. I was drawn to see it, even though I've seen it so many times before. I knew there was a message for me that I must have missed.

The tag line for the movie, in case you don't know, is "If you believe the impossible, the incredible can come true."

And incredible it was. Following the words he heard "If you build it, he will come" Kevin Costner's character, Ray Kinsella, plowed under his corn fields to build a magnificent baseball field. He knew that Shoeless Joe Jackson was going to come. He expected the miracle.

And he waited. Sometimes I think we forget that miracles don't always happen over night, that sometimes we have to wait for our dreams to come true. In spite of obstacles, financial difficulties, the doubts and disbelief that others expressed, Ray held on to his vision. He held on to his dream and was willing to take the actions he was guided to.

In the end, Ray's own father was the one who came to the field so that Ray could have a "catch" with his Dad one more time. That precious moment that had been Ray's true, underlying dream was finally fulfilled.

Ray asked his father "Is there a heaven?" His father answered, "Oh, yeah…it's where dreams come true."

This was the piece I'd missed before in the movie. And yet, I've often wondered what if this really is heaven on earth? What if anything and everything was possible if we just believed and were willing to follow our passions?

This IS the time to believe in your dreams, to believe in the limitless possibilities of life, to believe in yourself, to believe in miracles.

Stop paying attention to the "What If's" that always take you to the bottom of the elevator, the ones that have paralyzed you and killed your dreams in the past. Those are old beliefs grounded in lack and limitation thinking, what we call poverty consciousness. You don't want them and you don't need them.

Instead, choose to play a different game and consider this possibility: What if this IS heaven on earth and you have the ability to create your life based on what you choose to think and do. What if everything in the Universe was available to support you so that you can live the life of your dreams?

This month, get in touch with your dream and your vision. Spend time focusing on your vision so that it expands and you can see it, feel it, taste it, touch it, smell it, know it. Find your team that believes in you and will support you. Set your goals and take the appropriate actions. Expect the miracles to happen every day of your life. Know that you deserve them and that they're happening for you.


With prosperity and blessings,

"Just as the law of mathematics does not of itself add or subtract or multiply, but works through man's intelligence, or mind, so the law of supply does not of itself demonstrate abundance for you unless you cooperate with it by right thoughts and actions."
- Paramahansa Yogananda, The Law of Abundance


Oh, this must be movie month. In the movie "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" Professor Dumbledore tells Harry, "It is not our abilities that show who we truly are - it is our choices."

How profound. How important this is for us to remember. How easy it is for us to forget when we feel pressured or stressed.

I have been continually amazed and delighted with the Manifesting Made Easy workshop groups, and one of the women brought this idea home to us all last week. She admitted she was feeling sad and somewhat disappointed with no date on Valentine's Day, and then she chose to have a different experience.

She chose to make it a wonderful day and set out in her life showing kindness, consideration, and gratitude. She smiled at people, got them shopping carts at the market, and got into the spirit of joy. She also manifested a dozen red roses from a man she hadn't dated in almost a year!

The moral of this story is that we all choose in every moment of our life. We can choose to turn our day around at any time. We can choose to create a day of joy, fun, and celebration. Those days, chosen one at a time, turn into a life rich with love, happiness, and success.

Show who you truly are and make the choices that count.

"Form a mental picture of yourself as you want to be, and at the greatest height your imagination can picture. Dwell upon this for some time, holding the thought 'This is what I really am; it is a picture of my own soul. I am this now in soul, and I am becoming this in outward manifestation.'"
- Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Becoming Excellent
