We'd just finished swimming and were all dried up ready to go. My granddaughter, Peyton, can't swim by herself yet so we'd taken off her "floaties" (the blow up arm band variety) and she was putting the toys back into the pool. In the blink of an eye, without any warning, she jumped into the pool and quickly went under! As I pulled her out of the water and looked into her eyes of quiet desperation, my world was shaken. I had come close to losing someone I love very much.

The next day Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and my heart went out to those people who had not been so lucky. In the following days and weeks, we have seen pictures and heard stories of devastation and loss in a way we may never have experienced it before. The tragedy is deep and, on one level or another, everyone has felt the effects.

Our world is forever changed. As the tremendous outpouring of relief efforts continue, families are reunited, and talks of rebuilding begin, there has been a fundamental shift in the way people are thinking. We are awakening to this dynamic time of life.

Since Katrina, I have received emails, phone calls, and visits from people asking if they can continue manifesting in their lives while people in the Gulf Coast are dealing with the aftermath of destruction.

My answer is YES! It is not only okay, now more than ever it is absolutely essential that each and every one of us practice conscious creation. As we raise our own visions, focus on peace, prosperity, love, and joy in our world, and demonstrate that we have the personal power to create our life experience, we are setting a solid foundation for others to do the same. You have the opportunity now to BE the example that people need to see, to BE the inspiration for countless others.

It is important to remember that when you have great wealth, you have the ability to make an even greater difference in the world through your generosity. As Dr. Mansukh Patel says in A Call To Action, "When it is used well, wealth gives you greater value for yourself and, even more importantly, it gives you total freedom to excel in bringing the joys of celebration into the hearts and minds of millions."

This is not the time to be stingy, small, or limited. This is the time to dream BIG and to step powerfully into the world of limitless abundance, knowing that it is your right and your responsibility to live a life that is rich, full, and fulfilled in every way! This is your time!

More than that, as you shift your consciousness you are lifting up the collective consciousness of the planet as a whole. Now more than ever, the world needs to see and to believe in the miracles that each and every one of us can create through the right use of our thoughts every day.

Knowing you are enough. Knowing there is more than enough for every single person on the face of the planet. Knowing that what you focus on expands. Knowing that what you expect is what you get. Knowing that what you believe is what you see reflected in the world around you. Knowing that what you think, say and do with a powerful, positive focus actually vibrates at a higher level that attracts only rich, wonderful experiences to you.

Our planet is going through a period of dynamic change and as a people we are transforming, too. It is essential that we release and let go of old beliefs that no longer support us so that we can truly BE the co-creators that we already are as a powerful force for good.

And as a global community, we are participating in a time where old beliefs are being blown away, as we are cleaning out the closet of our collective conscious mind.

We have seen people awakening to the idea of their personal responsibility and power in light of a system that failed. We have seen the resilience of individuals moving beyond perceived limitations to make a difference in spite of the odds. Our global community has come together in a way that affirms what Quantum Physics and the Super String Theory have been telling us all along - that we are One. Like cells in a body, each of us are connected and what impacts one is certain to effect the whole.

The Maharishi Effect has demonstrated through scientific studies that with just 1% of the population meditating, the overall quality of life improves with a significant reduction of crime and accidents, increased health, increase in stock prices, decreased pollution, decreased unemployment, and decreased hostilities between nations. It takes such a small number of us to make an amazing difference.

As we change our thought habits to new visions in alignment with prosperity consciousness, knowing the Universe is full of limitless abundance, and have the courage to look beyond the illusion of what we see in the world around us in the moment to the TRUTH of what we know will be, we are contributing to the collective consciousness that WILL make a profound difference in our world.

So, let the change begin with you and let it begin today.

Change your consciousness, change your life. Change your life and you change the world. We ALL deserve it!!!

To your wealth and success,

Debbie Friedman, C.Ht.

"This then is the real key to life: if you change your mind your conditions must change too - your body must change, your daily work or other activities must change; your home must change; the color-tone of your whole life must change - for whether you be habitually happy or cheerful, or low-spirited and fearful, depends entirely on the quality of the mental food upon which you diet yourself."

- Emmet Fox in Power Through Constructive Thinking



We probably all know about Global Warming, and yet there is more. Our world is in a dynamic time of change and it is essential that we remember that we have the capacity and the responsibility to change with it. We ARE evolving.

The sea surface temperature is rising which is increasing the number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes, up from 50 every 5 years in the 1970's to 90 every 5 years in the last decade (Science, September 16, 2005).

Deaths from earthquakes have steadily increased from 231 in 2000 to 284,010 in 2004. In the first 12 days of September, there were 431 earthquakes worldwide (USGS National Earthquake Information Center).

There is significant scientific evidence that suggests Earth is undergoing a magnetic pole reversal, something that hasn't happened for more than 700,000 years.

Solar flares continue to increase and one of the largest ever recorded occurred on September 7th causing disruptions in electrical systems throughout North America (NOAA Space Environment Center).

Since 1979, the size of the summer polar ice cap has shrunk more than 20%, causing a global rise in the sea level (NASA).

Now, I'm not sharing this information to spread fear (there is enough of that out there!) but to awaken the awareness that we are indeed in a time of change and a time of choice!

Here are some things you can do to change your life:

Go on a negativity diet and expand to open more to the feelings of joy and love. Turn off the tv, the news or anything scary. Let go of the need to gossip, criticize, or complain. Every day read and listen to powerful, positive inspiring works that will lift your spirits. Actively look for what's good in yourself, others, and your life. Express gratitude for it.

Consciously choose what you desire for yourself and for the world. Choose powerfully, positively, and consciously. Remember, if you don't choose you are accepting a default pattern and choosing for everything to remain the same. Whereas in the past you may have focused on what you don't choose to experience, begin to shift your focus to what you DO choose. What you focus on expands.

Visualize what you choose with all of your senses as if you are playing your mental movie at least 5 minutes every day. Love your visions, knowing that you have the power to create the life you love to live.

Meditate by relaxing your body and relaxing your mind to open a channel to Higher wisdom and understanding for at least 5 minutes every day.

Ground yourself every morning. We are energetic beings and to manifest in this world we need to be connected with the dynamic energies of the Earth. If you are new to this practice, click here for a grounding exercise that I've recorded.

Pray with heartfelt emotion and with gratitude as if you have already received, knowing that your prayers will always be given one of 3 answers: yes, not now, or I've got something better for you. Pray Love, Peace, Joy, Compassion, and Truth.

Be a living prayer as you move out into the world as a force for good in the world. Remember, your smallest action can make a huge difference. While efforts to send money, diapers, medicines, food, clothing, and water to the Gulf region are ongoing, consider the needs of your own community as well.

You are here for a reason with a purpose. LIVE it NOW!!!

YOU deserve it!
