ISSUE DATE: April 2006





I was on the phone with a client as she was driving. In the background I could hear a gentle, clear, and kind voice guiding her on her way. Even as she pulled over to write down something we were discussing, the soft voice was directing her every move. She giggled at the instructions and told me how terrific it was. She said joyfully, "This system is the greatest! It tells me exactly how to get where I'm going!"

The next day, I talked to my friend CJ who was ecstatic about the TomTom he had received as a gift. He just moved to a new area and felt scared because he doesn't have a well-developed sense of direction and was afraid he'd get lost. Bolstered with a new-found confidence, he said he was free from fear, that he didn't have to be afraid of getting lost ever again. The friendly English female voice he selected tells him exactly which turns to make, when to make them, and, if he makes a mistake, immediately tells him how to correct his course. He now feels safe, secure, guided, and protected as he navigates his world. He has an invaluable friend with him each mile of the way, liberated from what had held him back in the past.

Waiting in line at the airport, I stood behind 3 people who were comparing their handheld GPS devices. One man shared with the other two that he'd even purchased a special system for his Blackberry to guide him when he is walking down the streets of New York City. In any city in the world, in fact, he said he can know with certainty that he is headed in the right direction. He can feel assured that he will reach his destination with great ease, regardless of the conditions or circumstances.

Access to the Global Positioning System (GPS) has clear, definite, and immediate benefits: People are guided to navigate the roads to their destination with the least effort, avoiding the accidents and detours that cause others to be delayed. People feel safe, secure, and protected by the gentle reassuring voice that tells them what to do, when to do it, and immediately how to correct if they are off course or make a mistake. They can have confidence, knowing they are moving in the right direction to where they want to go. They are free from fear, and can enjoy the journey without worry or struggle.

Which brings us to the real question here: What are you using to navigate in your LIFE? Are you tapping into the GPS of the Universe that each and every one of us has access to absolutely free of charge?

Are you having a regular, daily conversation with the forces of higher wisdom that will be right there to support you with the guidance you need to feel calm, safe, confident, secure, protected, free from fear, and on the path to your destination with the least effort?

Would you like to???

Like any relationship, it doesn't develop over night. If you called a new friend once every five years or only when you were in trouble, it's unlikely you would have established a solid foundation for good communication. The same principle applies here.

As a conscious creator moving forward purposefully in the world, it is your right and your responsibility to open the channels for this endless supply of knowledge and wisdom from a higher perspective. The Universe is here to delight you and excite you, responding to your every desire and request.

A woman phoned me tonight to tell me about one of her successes. Last week she set her intention to be successful in her real estate profession. The next day, when she had to mail a package, she asked for guidance on where to go. She said she felt drawn to go to a UPS store that she'd never been to before and when she got there she started talking to the owner who in a short time told her he was interested in selling an apartment building and buying another one. With little effort, in the regular course of her day, she had been guided to a new client with the potential for a huge financial payoff!

Which brings us to an important point. It is essential that you set an intention and consciously choose what you desire. Create a vision for the life of your dreams as if it was a movie running in your mind so that you can feel it, see it, touch it, taste it, hear it, smell it, know it. This is effectively setting a roadmap for your subconscious mind to operate on, marking your destination for the journey of your life. If you don't know where you're going, you'll probably never get there or you won't recognize it when you arrive.

If you're new to this idea of tapping into the Universal GPS, here are some easy steps you can take to begin:

1. Have a regular practice of meditation. This single step alone will open the channels of communication in amazingly wonderful ways. While Transcendental Meditation, also known as TM, and Primordial Sound Meditation developed by Dr. Deepak Chopra are popular and set a solid foundation, any activity that quiets your mind is a form of meditation. Deep breathing, gardening, walking, sitting in nature, knitting, painting, and golf are great examples but the list is endless. The important thing is to set your intention to connect with Higher Wisdom, ask for guidance on any question you might have, and then open your mind to receive.

2. Dreams are a magnificent time to connect with the Superconscious. As you are drifting off to sleep, set your intention to connect with whatever you call your Higher Power, ask for whatever you desire help or clarity on, and then become aware of your thoughts as you awaken in the morning (or perhaps even during the night). I find it is most beneficial to ask that the guidance be clear, definite, and specific and that it come in a way that I will know that it is an answer to my request. You may also choose to write your request on a piece of paper, put it under your pillow, and literally "sleep on it" over the night.

3. Tap into the wisdom of your body. When you're faced with a decision, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and simply think about the choice in front of you. Notice how your body responds when you think about taking one action or another. Your body will always respond with reliable information. If you get a heavy, sick, or tense feeling in your stomach, it's likely the answer is No. If the feeling is light and easy, it's likely the answer is Yes. This is literally learning to trust your "gut feeling", and it's important to learn how your body communicates best with you. For me, I get a heavy pit feeling in my stomach with a No, and a light, fluttery feeling in my heart area (with no sensation in my stomach) for a Yes.

4. Kinesiology, also known as Muscle Testing, is also a reliable way of tapping into the wisdom that your body has to share with you. In my workshops I present 5 techniques (including 4 you can use on yourself), however, that's not a practical discussion in this article. If you're interested in finding out more about this, I encourage you to check out some resources. Dr. David Hawkins in Power versus Force. Dr. John Diamond in Your Body Doesn't Lie, Dr. Susan Levy in Your Body Can Talk , Dr. John Thie in Touch for Health, and Dr. Hyla Cass in 8 Weeks To Vibrant Health are highly recommended.

5. My CD Connecting With Intuition and Wisdom is designed to guide you in developing your natural abilities to tap into the infinite intelligence of the Universe, enhancing your intuitive abilities, and gaining clarity that will open the way to unlimited abundance and wealth. It's an excellent tool for developing your direct connection.

Set your intention, consciously choose what you desire for your life, focus your vision, and ASK for whatever guidance, clarity, and direction you are seeking. Ask that the guidance be delivered to you in a way you will understand and absolutely can't miss, and then get ready to receive. Expect to receive your answers in a wonderful way. When you get your guidance get excited and take action immediately.

Most of all, begin to take the steps today to tap into the Universal GPS so that you can live a life that is on course to your destination, feeling free, calm, safe, secure, confident, and full of fun, joy, and ease! Give yourself that gift!

Remember - YOU deserve it!

To your wealth and success,

Debbie Friedman, C.Ht.
