During a manifestation ceremony, on top of a mountain, I made this bold statement, "I feel thrilled that I am now a Hay House published author." It was a bold statement, because I had not even written the first page of the book that had been living inside my head.
The only things holding us back are our repetitive thoughts of doubt and negativity which, with some determination, can completely turn around into repetitive thoughts of possibility, in which we have sole creative control.

As I stood at the water's breaking edge, I gazed at the continuous ebb and flow of the tide as it crashed against the rocks. It reminded me of the constant giving and receiving flow of energy found in our universe.
