“The way to maintain one’s connection to the wild is to ask yourself what it is that you want. This is the sorting of the seed from the dirt. One of the most important discriminations we can make in this matter is the difference between things that beckon to us and things that call from our souls.” ―Clarissa Pinkola Estés,


April 5, 2018


Several years ago JoEllen Fulton and I were talking, and we decided we needed to add a word to the English language. That word is “manifester,” a verb. To manifester. It’s what we do when we hang on to icky stuff so long it starts to show up in how we live. I like it because it’s a fun and descriptive way of describing the power of negative thinking.



“Manifestering” happens when our thinking becomes distorted, and we get caught in a web of resentment and self-pity. Just like a physical wound that becomes infected begins to ooze toxic stuff, so it is with our internal wounds. If we don’t take care of them, keep them clean, acknowledge their need for healing, they begin to fester and to infect our whole lives with poison.



We are focusing specifically on the 3rd Unity Principle in the next two weeks. Our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs have the power to create our reality.




William James said it this way, “Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”



Blessings and a beautiful week-end to you!
