ISSUE DATE: August 2006








I was driving a distance to a meeting and stopped along the way for a quick bite to eat. As I walked into the restroom, I looked in the mirror and my immediate response was "I'm beautiful!".

Now, the truth is that the mirror on the wall was not made of glass - it was made of a reflective plastic that allows only a blurry, unfocused kind of image.

I couldn't see the wrinkles, the blemishes, the imperfections. I could only see my reflection from a larger perspective and it was magnificent.

Which started me thinking: Is blurry vision a gift?

We can change our perspective and what we see by the lens or filter that we choose to look through. Like the mirrors of carnivals past, we get to choose what we stand for and what we stand in front of, and our vision may be distorted by the choices we make. We may see the truth or only a small aspect of it or something that doesn't even exist. It's all up to us.

The visual spectrum of light for the human eye is limited. We know we can see only a fraction of what really exists in the world, and we can see only a fragment of the vast, limitless, abundant potential that the Universe offers freely.

And as we may have trained ourselves over the years to look for what's lacking, what's wrong, the piece of the puzzle that's missing, we can simply choose to retrain ourselves to look for what is beautiful, right, balanced, loving, good, joy-filled, and wondrous.

We get to choose what we focus on - what our attention is drawn to. As we focus on the perfection, the beauty, the joy, the love, the laughter, the abundance in life we must experience more of that as the Universe responds to our natural attraction.

What we focus on expands and is created in our world.

Just like a mirror, every aspect of your life will reflect back to you what you have been giving your attention to, what you've been focusing on.

As we look beyond the wrinkles and blemishes and imperfections, and take our focus entirely off of what we "think" is wrong, what hasn't been done, what's missing, what's not quite right, what doesn't please us, we can begin to feel an immediate shift.

Remember your power and who you are. You are the captain of your own ship in this journey of life and you get to choose what you see, think, feel, and take action on. You have the ability every day to determine your destiny.


Choose powerfully and positively.

Focus on the truth, free from the limitations of your logical mind.

Look for what's right.

Seek exquisite visions of beauty and magnificence.

One of my friends has a cousin who uses a brilliant tool that I'd like to share with you. She chooses to have Amnesia for a day - forgetting all past judgments, hurts, angers, fears, disappointments, and interpretations. And, in this state of mind and being, the Universe untangles things for us.

I was crabby in the market last week. I'd taken a quick break from work to run to the store and found myself in a long express check out line with a 10 item limit behind a woman who had 15. There was a child in front of me in his mother's arms and my mind immediately went to the idea that he was overweight. Then he turned his face to me and smiled.

All judgment, anxiety, tension left my body as I was engaged by an angelic child in a moment of pure joy. His bright smile and calm, clear eyes shifted my day. I realized I had allowed my ego, my agenda, to laser focus in a direction I did not desire to travel and recognized that I had allowed myself to miss out on some precious, delight-filled experiences. In that moment, I made the decision to be present for the gifts of each and every minute of my day.

As we accept ourselves as being perfect - just the way we are - we allow ourselves to enter into a state of grace where everything else around us falls into alignment in a wonderful way. When we offer ourselves unconditional love, the mirror of our life will reflect that image back to us. When we can see, know, feel, sense and appreciate the perfection of our self, a profound transformation takes place almost immediately.

Just for today, give yourself the gift of blurry vision. Allow yourself to have amnesia. Open your mind, your heart, your eyes to a new vision of how magnificent you truly are and the perfection of every moment! Just for today, allow yourself to see only the truth - that life is full of beauty, love, joy, abundance and prosperity for all. And, most of all, allow yourself to receive.

Just for today, allow yourself to see only the truth - that life is full of beauty, love, joy, abundance and prosperity for all. And, most of all, allow yourself to receive.

YOU deserve it!

To your wealth and success,
