The Basal Ganglia, Prefrontal Cortex, & Using Both In The Law Of Attraction


Neuroscientists have been able to identify that our mental behavioral patterns stem from a part of the brain called the “basal ganglia”. This region is vital in the development of our memories, our own emotions, and even recognizing patterns in general.

Neuroscientists also state that decisions we make stem from a different part of the brain called the “prefrontal cortex”.

So how can we use these two different regions in our FAVOR when it comes to the law of attraction and manifesting our soul’s NEW reality?

Listen to my new podcast in order to find out!

The Hardest Arithmetic to Master Is That Which Enables Us to Count Our Blessings – Eric Hoffer


Hey Sensational Soul!

In case you haven’t already, don’t forget to join the free Facebook community, Manifest it! Every Friday in the group I give FREE Mastering Your Mindset prompts to help you gain CLARITY around your mindset in order to conquer your life’s goals through the power of law of attraction AND taking inspired actions. Marrying the two really does help to speed up your manifestations into your physical realm!

Today we are exploring and meshing your own blessings and your own beliefs. When you examine what you are thankful for and WHY you are thankful for them, you can figure out HOW to incorporate your blessings into learning how to SHIFT your mindset beliefs. By doing so, the thought of propelling yourself even CLOSER to your manifestations doesn’t seem so abstract and hard to do. Seriously!

In today’s example I am asking you to think of someone you know who has or does impact you in a powerful way.

Is it a past teacher or family member? Or perhaps it’s a current family member and/or your spouse? Or maybe it was/is an acquaintance in your life?

It can be anyone, there isn’t a “right” or “wrong” person to choose for this.

Normally I do not give out the full Mastering Your Mindset prompts, but I want to really show you a sneak peak of what happens in the group every Friday. So here we go:


Pick someone who impacted (or impacts) your life in a good way and write a letter to them addressing the following:


1) What is it about them as a person that impacts you in such a positive way?

2) What did they say and/or do that impacted you so greatly? Or, what is it they say and/or do that impacts you so greatly?

3) Why are you still thankful for them to this day?

4) What do you carry with you from your memories of them (or if they are still in your life, what do you admire about them THE MOST)?

5) Now that you know what kind of characteristics and things from another that you admire and HOW it has helped you/helps you…what can you do to incorporate this into moving CLOSER to your manifestations coming into your physical realm? What about them can help you NOW in the present? What about HOW they helped you can help you NOW in the present?



With respect to #5, journal out the following:

6) Since you believe this person has impacted you/impacts you in such a positive way, describe reasons WHY this is in fact, TRUE. Finish this sentence stem at least 10 times: I fully believe (insert person) has such a positive impact on me and my life because…(you are going to play the lawyer and really state your case as to why your beliefs are TRUE and REAL).

7) Now take what you wrote and change the person’s name to YOUR name. Finish this sentence stem at least 10 times: I fully believe I have such a positive impact on ME and MY LIFE because…(really write it all out each time with TRUE conviction).

8) Finish this sentence 15 times: now that I am in full conviction of who I AM, I choose to take inspired actions to bring forth my manifestations and SHOW the Universe what my soul’s truest purpose is by…


As you perform this Mastering Your Mindset exercise, do NOT be afraid to dig real deep and get completely raw with yourself. The more honest you are with yourself, the MORE BREAKTHROUGHS and RELEASES you have…and this is very cleansing.

This opens the gateway to clarity and realizations for yourself and your life. Furthermore, it speeds up the manifestation process because you feel more in FLOW with yourself and your life.

And don’t forget: each time you have that spark of an inspirational idea, it is your SOUL nudging you along to take inspired actions!

You can do this! I totally believe in you! Keep going! I am SO excited because I recently launched my brand NEW manifesting program: Manifesting Your Soul’s New Reality: Gaining An Empowering Edge In The Law of Attraction! It’s an empowering 5-day audio and digital program over the course of 10 transformational days to help you:

Anchor in your newly powerful soul’s TRUEST abundant belief system

And you will learn how to follow your soul’s truest calling in both mindset AND in actions!

It’s time to BREAK UP with your fears and create YOUR OWN life in the ways your soul is truly calling to exist in its purpose. The Universe IS working behind the scenes FOR YOU! When you live by your soul’s purpose, everything is so much easier, much more fun, and MUCH more enjoyable.

Welcome To Your Freedom: A Spiritually Massive Rant


Hey Sensational Soul!

I want to talk about the concepts of attachment and detachment. We are all ONE with the Universe, so why do we allow ourselves to be so attached to the outcome of our own manifestations? It’s time to understand just how freeing it truly is to not give a fuck about the outcome of YOUR life. I feel like just typing this brings about anxiety for probably a lot of you. I have anxiety, too, just hear me out for a few minutes:

You Put In “The Work”

You have your hopes, you journal them out every single day. You perform Mastering Your Mindset journaling with the greatest intentions towards your new reality. Your soul is calling, aching to get out and be free in this world. You perform your mindset journaling with ALL of the details you can conjure up from inside of your imagination. And then you follow it by taking inspired actions to SHOW the Universe what you truly want for your soul’s manifestations.

This is a mixture of success. You do this DAILY for many weeks on end.

But then you start to get disappointed, sad, and perhaps even cynical because your new reality is not happening already. You start to doubt yourself, your abilities, even your purpose in life. You start to doubt Source, God, the angels, and/or anything else you use to describe your faith of all the particles that make up the Universe. The Divine.

Why is by performing this mixture of manifesting success on a daily basis NOT coming to fruition by now? You are being patient, you are being consistent, you are trying your best to stay in flow and trust the process.

So what gives?

The Reputation of Attachment vs. Detachment

Well, you know how many teachings of the law of attraction state in order to manifest it you must be detached to the outcome of it? I was listening to Dr. Wayne Dyer today and he said something to the effect of when you detach FROM your desire, it somehow attracts itself TO you. How does one do this exactly? I call it the freedom of not giving a fuck about the outcome.

You have to be truly okay with the outcome, whatever it is. Yes, you REALLY want your desire; but, if you cling to it so much it can become an unhealthy attachment. The Universe is ALWAYS wanting you to have either exactly what you want; or, something even BETTER is coming to you, FOR you and your soul’s highest happiness. You cannot be happy by seeking from the outside, being happy only comes from within yourself.

Being happy is a choice. And with choice comes empowerment. And with empowerment comes the freedom of setting intentions to call things in TO you. This powerful phenomenon that is CHOICE is what “free will” is all about- if that isn’t freedom I don’t know WHAT is. You have the free will to CHOOSE your soul’s new reality any way you CHOOSE it to be. BUT, choice and freedom cannot speed up your manifestations if you are obsessively clinging TO the outcome of your manifestations. Right?

Attachment Equals Doubt & Fear

Attaching yourself to your desire is actually living in fear that it WON’T happen for you. Furthermore, attaching yourself to your desire is actually living in doubt because you are SO FREAKING ATTACHED to it that you are doubtful it will voluntarily come flowing to you like magnets of energy attracting to each other. Living in fear and in doubt does NOT equal happiness. It will never happen for you this way. This entire “once I have it then I’ll be happy” mindset is complete and utter bullshit. My solution? Just don’t give a flying fuck about the outcome of your desires. I know, I know, it is so much easier said than done. I am human and I completely understand how you are feeling.

I teach so many souls all over the world to learn HOW to empower themselves. I want to point out, and maybe you already know this, but by attaching yourself to your desires you are actually doing the opposite because you are giving away your power TO the outcome of your desire. Therefore, you are essentially giving away your own power to CREATE your own reality. Living with attachments, meaning living in fears and in doubts, is not freeing at all. This is not freedom. Being free IS happiness. Living in freedom is happiness.

And let’s change the word “desire” because when one desires something, it’s inherently stating that one is without. So you are internally acknowledging to yourself that you are WITHOUT when you focus on your desires. Yes, I call them desires, and they ARE desires. But, my point is what you give meaning to expands- and through repetition your meanings become your beliefs. Ahhh…this is all so crazy sounding, right? So let’s simplify it…by not giving a fuck AT ALL about the outcome. Just throw it out of your focus. Stop obsessing over all of it.


Surrendering Does NOT Mean Quitting, It Means Detachment

This does NOT mean you are giving up altogether. This does NOT mean you are quitting Mastering Your Mindset through your daily mindset journaling. This does NOT mean you are quitting taking inspired actions. It just means you are SURRENDERING to the outcome of how and when it comes into your physical realm. You are DETACHING yourself from the NEED of the external. You are detaching yourself and you are, instead, putting forth your faith as your acceptance. Detachment is actually a very normal feeling when you understand just how much you ARE one with the Universe. It’s a choice you make: I AM one with the Universe. Therefore, I ALREADY have everything I need inside of me. My manifestation is ALREADY in existence, the Universe is responding in a favorable way. I am CHOOSING to go forth by taking inspired actions, daily, because I am calm, I am centered, and I trust and know it is done.

You are surrendering to the Universe, the Divine timing, and instead you are thinking, feeling, and DOING from your soul’s place of happiness. You are CHOOSING to think and focus on thoughts that bring you happiness FROM within. You are CHOOSING to feel and focus on thoughts and feelings that bring you happiness FROM within. You are CHOOSING to act, to be, and to DO through the focus of moving towards your life goals BECAUSE it is your soul’s purpose. This is detachment.

The Art of Freeing Yourself…Going Further

How freeing is this? How freeing is it to know that by existing FROM your soul’s purpose, you are not only freer, but you are happier, and AT THE SAME TIME you could care less of the outcome because what you are thinking, feeling, doing, and being RIGHT NOW is so fun! This is being and existing WITH the Universe. This is how your mindset, your soul, and the Universe work together SIMULTANEOUSLY to produce magical experiences of manifesting into your physical realm.

Every day is a choice. You get to choose however you want to think, whatever you want to set your intentions around, however you want to feel, and however you want to BE and DO in life. Why not live in freedom? Why not live in happiness? Why not stop obsessing over destination happiness- meaning the “when I have it, then I’ll be happy” mentality? Live in the NOW, perform your mindset journaling every day, yes, most definitely! Take those 5 minutes or even 55 minutes and write everything out exactly how your new reality IS. And then? Then, let it all go. Be thankful for ALL of your blessings you have right at this very moment. Free yourself from the burden of attaching yourself to the outcome.

Remember: the Universe gives you either exactly what you want; OR, something MUCH BETTER is coming FOR you. And it IS coming FOR YOU. It’s a done deal. It’s done, make this choice that it’s done. And just go on about your day living in flow, being free in not giving a fuck about the outcome. Relax, have fun, focus on thoughts, feelings, and actions that feel GOOD to your soul. Yes, take inspired actions DAILY, nothing magical happens inside of your comfort zone. You are ALLOWED to grow and evolve as a being. You ARE allowed to have whatever it is you truly want into your physical realm. It’s done. It’s manifesting right at this very moment. Trust the process, don’t obsess over the “how” or the “when”. Fuck the outcome. The Universe ALWAYS has your back. Always. To be attached to anything or anyone is literally admitting to yourself that you are not in control of your own being, your own happiness, your own freedom.

So FREE yourself. You CAN do this. I am one of the most stubborn souls I know and if I can do it, I KNOW you can, too. Besides, DETACHING yourself from trying to control your surroundings and the outcome is so much more fun! And when you have fun you are existing in flow. And being in flow is communicating to the Universe: I want more of things and events that feel like flow. Before you even realize it, your manifestations ARE in the physical realm. And it’s because you literally did not give a fuck about the “how” and the “when” of the outcome. You made the choice that it’s done and you didn’t dwell on it. You detached from it. It’s TRULY amazing how all of this works!

You Keep Saying “Mastering Your Mindset”…

I realize I have mentioned Mastering Your Mindset journaling a few times now, this is something I performed every single day and over the course of 10 months I literally manifested 99% of my desires. It’s TRULY amazing how everything stems from your mindset and your mindset beliefs. Performing mindset journaling is an empowering and transformational tool in order to SHIFT your mindset, thus your reality. In addition, it’s a wonderfully creative tool in order to speed up your manifestations because performing Mastering Your Mindset journaling actually opens up your abilities to expand your creativity within your mind, meaning this is POWERFUL form of visualization.

To learn more about Mastering Your Mindset and mindset journaling, hop on over to my website: Manifest It! . You can sign up for my FREE take-charge 3-Day program, learn more about my empowering Don’t Feel Stuck! journal workbook available on Amazon, as well as many other transformational programs that truly help you to SPEED UP your manifestations! I take ALL of my mastering manifestation methods and make them available to you, FOR your soul’s calling. If you’re anything like me who loves to live in freedom, your soul will truly thank you!

Thanks so much for reading (if your eyes haven’t gone cross-eyed by now). Go out there and make it a great one! Remember, YOU hold the keys to your own future. Have a GREAT day!

Carpe Diem!

Failure Is Success In Progress- Albert Einstein


Failure Is Success In Progress- Albert Einstein

Hey Sensational Soul,

Today has been a HARD day for me. I am currently sitting on the couch with a glass of pink moscato and trying to remind myself that tomorrow is a NEW day! I had a quick, but great vacation celebrating my sweet chemist’s birthday and going to the Eagles concert (as a birthday surprise for him). This past week has been so wonderful.

Now The Test

Today has been very testing for me. I have been working non-stop: I updated my website again, added new content, writing for my new book and for my VIP Facebook groups (and sometimes feeling writer’s block), not to mention writing for my new podcasts and blogs, working with the physicists, and I haven’t been able to sleep these past few days because of everything that is going on in my mind. I feel like a mixture of internal wheels constantly turning and physically I am a zombie. I feel like there is NOT ENOUGH TIME in the day to get everything that I want to get done!

Failure Is Success In Progress

I really love Einstein, and this quote speaks to me these past few days, “failure is success in progress.” Transparency alert: I am so worried about “failing” after producing SO MUCH content all over world-wide web that I am exhausting myself from worry. What if EVERYTHING I’m doing doesn’t pan out for me in my business? What if ALL of the money I am investing in order to help people through various media platforms falls flat? What if no one wants to pay me for my online programs? What if souls don’t like their results from my programs???????? This is the BIG one!

Taking The Leaps By Making Choices

I have taken some HUGE faith-based leaps these past few weeks: I started my own podcast AND YouTube channel, I launched my first online program with audio and digital formats, I launched my first free 3-Day Mastering Your Mindset online program (totally different from what I was doing before), and I have even appeared on videos in my Facebook community, Manifest It!, a couple of times. I am seriously leveling UP.

And you know why? It’s because deep down I have made a CHOICE. I have DECIDED. I am DONE with living from fear, I am DONE playing small, and I am DONE remaining in my comfort zone. I know there are only 24 hours in each day, but you know what? I am taking inspired actions each and every single day and I am moving towards my soul’s desire to help as many souls as I possibly can via the worldwide web. And the more souls I can help, the more I can give back through charity donations to various animal organizations and to science medical research.

Focusing On The Results: Giving Back

I AM keeping my end-goal in mind. I AM focusing on my end-results. I have this vision of spending my time coaching my soul-based, soulmate clients in my VIP Facebook groups each and every single day. I have this amazing image in my mind of donating a few thousand of dollars MONTHLY to various charities and to humanitarian research. I want to HELP GIVE BACK.

While I have spent the last few days worried about coming across as “silly” or not “perfect”, I am so drained that at this moment I don’t even care how I come across in this blog post: this IS me. Tired, zombie-like, still in flow, still propelling, still driving, still visualizing, still GOING, me. Every day. Every. Single. Day.

Keep Going! The Universe IS Super Abundant

Whatever it is you are manifesting- and believe me, you ARE manifesting it- KEEP GOING DAILY. The Universe is rearranging things on your path to help you along the way. And if it doesn’t feel like a HELL YES, then you shouldn’t be doing it. Follow your soul’s calling. I am following my soul and it feels so freaking good even though it’s super scary at times.

So what if I “fail” at something I am doing right now. As Einstein puts it, “failure is success in progress.” Therefore, I am NOT failing at all. I can be redirected, but I can NEVER fail. My mindset is continuously leveling up, and it’s super important to remind yourself that we ARE manifesting either exactly what we desire; OR, something MUCH BETTER is coming into our physical realm right at this moment. It’s on the way. It’s literally FOR us. The Universe is super abundant.

Strip It All Away & It Comes To This

If I impact 10 souls instead of 10,000 souls, well, at least I can take what is monetarily given to me and I can give back to humanity and to the Universe in the best way I can. And this, feels AMAZING. Keep going! Do your mindset journaling and take inspired actions each day! Big steps, small steps, it doesn’t matter. Just KEEP GOING, you’ve totally got this! I believe in you!

Carpe Diem!

A Friendly Spiritual Reminder: Rest Is Good For The Soul


Hey Sensational Soul!

Vacation is winding down for me and I want to take a quick few moments to pop into your inbox and remind you of this- in case you need some spiritual ass-kicking since I have been gone relishing in the Eagles concert and celebrating my soulmate’s birthday:

If You Are Tired, Get Some Rest!

There is NO REASON to constantly push yourself into doing things if you are tired at the moment. YES, it’s important to be consistent in taking inspired actions, DAILY; however, if you are tired one day, REST. Your soul needs to be well-rested in order to EFFECTIVELY communicate with your mindset and the Universe simultaneously. In addition, merely, you ARE allowed to take a break.

Take A Break, But Don’t Give Up Altogether

Each and every day you are moving closer and closer. Each and every day you ARE manifesting towards your soul’s new reality AS LONG AS what you are thinking, feeling, and doing are positive thoughts, feelings, and actions. So what if you have a hard day or a “bad” day. Who cares! We are all human, just rest and take care of yourself. Get back up tomorrow and KEEP GOING.

You Are Your Own Superhuman

Do you think I am just 100% on the ball 100% of the time? Hell no! I am human, and part of being a masterful manifestor as a human being is the ability to be able to give yourself the rest your soul and mindset need in order to speed up your manifestations working WITH the Universe. You have seen the quote before, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” Well, this is extremely accurate. How do you expect to attract more of the same when you are so freaking tired on some days?

In Conclusion

Take a break, take a rest, and TRUST that you are doing SO MUCH MORE than you realize in manifesting your soul’s NEW reality! And believe me, you ARE manifesting what you desire. Trust the process, trust your soul’s intuition, trust the Universe- and after you have rested, go seize the day by taking more inspired actions! Be consistent! You CAN do this- and it’s actually a LOT EASIER than you are thinking it is to manifest so many of your desires into your life- and quickly! Just don’t give a f*ck and KEEP GOING!

So relax, have fun, do not worry so much, just take it easy, and FOCUS on thoughts that feel empowering, FOCUS on feelings that feel GOOD, and FOCUS on following your soul’s nudges by taking those inspirations and turning them into inspired actions! The Universe is responding to you, you’ve totally got this!

Carpe Diem!
