Yes, Dream Big and don’t let anyone shatter them! Protect your Dreams, stay focused and stay consistent! You truly deserve to attain all of your dreams. Many like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., have worked super hard and even gave their lives so that we can Dream Big and attain the type of life that we are willing to dream and work for.
A Dream is merely a goal, a vision, a deep desire that one wants to attain, accomplish, or acquire! The Universe does not care how big your Dreams are- all that matters is that once you plant the dream seeds, the universe goes to work to help you fertilize those seeds. When you find yourself diverting from your dreams - the Universe will nudge you to stay on course cause it wants you to attain all the goodness you deserve. It will create the avenues that you need in order to remain attentive to your dreams.
How? Well, I’m glad you asked. The mind gurus state that “Where focus goes, energy flows”. Remember when you were a teen and you really wanted to go to prom and wear a certain dress or go with a certain person, all you did was focus on that dress and person- your energy was all devoted to that one mission! No one and nothing could stop you from making sure you got what you wanted! Same thing with anything else, you are always creating those things around you with the focus that you give and share. If there are negative things around you, check your focus- check your dream- where are you sending your energy.
Yes, you are that powerful and you use your MaxPower when you are aware where you are putting your energy at every moment of your life. This way, you cannot be a victim because you know that you are responsible for everything that you are creating because of the Dream Seeds that you planted. Please continue to Dream Big!
With Love and Big Dreams for you,

DO YOUR HABITS HAVE YOU BY THE END OF YOUR LAST NERVE MAKING YOU WANT TO EAT FIRE OR ANYTHING THAT LOADS YOU UP UNTIL YOU EXPLODE? Not Again you say to Yourself and then you feel worse about it all that negative crap gets stuck to every nerve in your body and soul. Yes- stuck and it becomes the HABIT that you don't want... or maybe you do!
OR ARE YOUR HABITS SERVING YOU IN SUCH A WAY TO KEEP YOU BALANCED, PEACEFUL, AND JOYFUL? Blessings to you - maybe just maybe you broke the code... and I believe that it can be broken! I believe that we are magnificent in our God like existence!
I've felt like this over several years and I've been searching for a method that sticks, a method that can help me understand the madness and magnificence of the mind stuff we call Habits or fancy word Paradigms. It really pisses me off when I get in a groove with a certain mind frame and then I allow a distracting force come in and distort my mental environment and then Boom, I feel that everything that I've worked for is long gone. For a specific example, the experts state that affirmations are the key to the start of working to change a thought, a thought that usually gives you an emotional feeling about something, which then becomes a memory (habit) and gets stuck to make you believe that you are functioning in the way that you asked to function!
What the heck did I just say? Lol... Actually, it makes perfect sense to me because I've been studying the mind for many years now and it is where I ran into this awesome information that closely matched what I use in order to get my HABITS under control. Nothing is perfect, but working toward a positive outcome is usually where are happiness lies. You deserve to take control and to feel like you can be in control of your life each and every day. It's about loving and caring for yourself in a way that is life changing for you and for those you come in contact with. If you don't do it, who will?
Here's a segment of the information that I discovered and believe in.
"Why Isn’t Anybody Talking About How To Fight This?If you look around…
It seems like the media, institutions, and even our own families are making things worse.
Feeding us with myths, false beliefs, and misinformation that perpetuate the Shadow Complex.
Why isn’t anybody taking a stand? And why isn’t anybody exposing this subconscious self-sabotage happening to us?
Well, you probably already know the reason.
Corporations, governments and top-brass businessmen all benefit from everybody else living simple, mediocre lives of quiet desperation.
If we were all living our dream lives, we would no longer desire to buy things we don’t need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t even like.
Our world has turned us into by-products of lifestyle obsession.
Instead of passionate, driven, and confident individuals creating our most ideal, most authentic life…
We’ve become modern day slaves to debt and mediocrity."61080bquw9-50-9ckc0vbr3wdj.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=PARADIGM_1
Check it out here, https://61080bquw9-50-9ckc0vbr3wdj.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=PARADIGM_1 - lots to read, but I promise that if you invest in yourself and teaching yourself how to empower your mind, you will have a deeper sense of peace and love!
With Love and Strong Lasting Positive Habits,
Love love love! So many forms, experiences, examples, behaviors, demonstrations, and emotions that involve Love and its purpose. How do we know what Love is and when we are truly in Love? Do we act, feel, and think differently about someone or something when we truly Love them or it? Can we Love a dog/pet, with all our hearts, mind and soul? Why does Love involve each and every part of us in order to show or know that it is the Force of Love that we are generating and giving out?
Is Love complicated? There’s a ton of movies, songs, and common day people that tell you that is. Can it be complicated because what Love means to one person, may mean a totally different thing to another person? Interesting! Yes, we are capable of giving Love different meaning. And what usually happens when those different meanings collide with each other? Usually, one person may become super stubborn that Love their way is right and the other person’s way of defining Love must be wrong- time for a break up! Or is it?
Why choose to break up instead of putting in the work to understand that the other person has accepted that Love must be when he or she is told that they are Loved instead of being shown through extravagant gift giving? The simple act of being told that they are Loved, may be the most important way that they must know Love and not even a 3 karat diamond ring can ever replace that method. But why divorce? Why not investigate how to Love that person in a way that is most important to them? Well, think about it, if most people aren’t willing to even think or find out why they function the way that they do, what makes you think that they are going to that of another person. Especially the person that they’ve made a life commitment to.
Unlike a person, if we Love our jobs, hobbies, or collections- these things don’t have feelings to give you. They are not going to psycho analyze you, they’re just going to be ready for your excitement and energy. Our jobs may have a little feedback, but if your in a management position, you’re the boss, then you don’t have to listen to anyone so to speak. So Love takes on a new dimension- if Love was the most powerful force in the world that attracted you to the Love of your life, wouldn’t you want to explore the inner definitions of why you Love a certain way, or believe Love is supposed to happen a certain way for us? We are worth self Love! Give it to yourself first so that you can share it with others!
Love is Super Strong! Love is the Life Force! It is the reason we exist- and thus, worth exploring it inside and out...
With Love and its Force,
Who do you have a tight bond with? Is it true that we as humans can have tight bonds with just about anyone and anything? The other day, I watched a video in where people had tight bonds with the most unusual creatures. A man with a Crocodile, another with a Polar Bear, a Tiger, a Lion, a Hyena, and a Lion. We know that the majority of people have natural tight bonds with family and great friends that mean a ton to them, who have 100 percent trust in them, and believe that they would die for them. Would it be the same criteria of the animals that humans have built these incredible bonds with?
I believe Trust plays a major role in building a Tight Bond regardless of who you decide to build that sustained friendship with. But where does Trust come from? How is it formed? Trust cannot be seen initially, but over time, when a man or woman gets into a cage with a man eating Beast, you can clearly see that a sense of Trust exists between these two living creatures. We marvel at the site of them being able to co-exist in that space together without any incident. We wonder why, how, and what the heck is going on? Naturally, we ask about a special power that the human might have over the Beast. But that super power is Trust! Trust that has been established over a long period of time and under special conditions.
Imagine if you had this special power! Wait- you actually do have this amazing power! You were born with it and it is absolutely Free!!! You can develop trust over a period of time with whomever you give your time and attention to... I’m not saying go find a Tiger or Lion to be friends with- lol - but you never know where you path of life leads you and who you will befriend for the rest of your life!
With Love and Trust,
Does a High School Diploma, GED, College Degree, Certificate of Achievement, or Member of Mensa make you Better than another human being? If you were brought up like me in where I was taught to give those who were educated more respect than one that wasn’t, you would totally feel and believe that they were better than others due to their educational achievements. Everywhere I went, school, community events, or even church, taught me that people who held some level of college were to be held to a higher standard. If someone was good at mechanics, plumbing, home building, driving a truck, they were treated as normal average human beings. I always wondered why this was the case!
I unfortunately and fortunately was made aware around the age of 13, that someone who was highly educated didn’t mean that they were morally correct or better than those who weren’t. To be more specific, a priest from the church that I attended and where I served as an alter boy, acted in a way in which made me highly uncomfortable and shamed me for a very long time for the things that he did to me. I understood that this person had committed themselves to a long study of the Catholic religion and I felt that he was extraordinarily intelligent, thus giving him much more respect and held him to higher standard because of that and because he was closely tied to God. Talk about shattering my expectations and beliefs about educated people! Today, of course, I judge each person individually by the content of their character, but not on the type of education that they have acquired because of this extremely painful experience that I had to navigate and make sense out of. This taught me that no one person is better than anyone even if they have pledged their life to God.
Needless to say, I did acquire a Masters level degree in Education Management and Leadership on my journey to become a more educated person. It was interesting to also see that the roles had changed and now people acted and spoke to me in a certain way because I had attained a degree. I do understand that there must be some level of respect for a person’s role while utilizing that degree to accomplish a service for someone, but that does not mean that I was better nor I acted better than those who didn’t have a degree. I was taught by my aunt Victoria, who was never afforded the opportunity to attend school even though she was born in the USA, that I must respect all people regardless of their education level, socio economic status, and titles. She taught me to respect everyone because everyone was made the same in the eyes of God. As a child, of course you are going to have questions like, “Why didn’t they go to school, why is he always drinking and getting in trouble, why are they always fighting, and etc?” The answer was never that simple, but she just said, “As you get older, you will realize the power of choice and discipline, but this doesn’t make you better than anyone still, it is just a choice!” Again, these are lessons from a person who taught herself how to read enough so that she could read the Bible. Then it dawned on me as I searched for more meaning that people like the great Abraham Lincoln also did not go to school, but made a huge impact on the lives of many people as President.
My message here is that if you are a sincere, loving, and caring person, you have all the special qualities that make you - YOU! You already count in this world regardless of what level of education you may have. You may not aspire to become a doctor, lawyer, or corporate executive, but that doesn’t mean that they have more value than you just because of their career choices. Keep in mind, that there many doctors, lawyers, and corporate executives who are thrown in prison for the wrong that they do to people thinking that they can prey on for example, the weak, the mis-informed, and uneducated. And on the flip side, there are many professionals who do amazing positive things, but because they choose to.
Remember, education is not just book related, it is everywhere and we can learn from every experience and every situation we find ourselves in. I am sure that both Microsoft and Apple founders don’t care if you judge them by them not attaining their degrees- yup, they both dropped out of college to pursue their dreams. And there are many more cases of self made successful people who have done the same. Everyone deserves to be treated with value, but unfortunately, the mis-conception of those that are educated deserve more value continues to be perpetuated.
I value you because you are you and if I come across a bit educated, its just because I’ve chosen to read and inform myself with things that can possibly be more beneficial to serve you. It’s an act of Love and I am no better than you or anyone nor will I ever claim to be.
With lots of Love and Value,
P.S. Thank you to my homie and sweet friend Zuly for inspiring this Blog.
Have you had a moment of Clarity where everything that you’ve wondered about all of a sudden made sense? Did this moment happen at a certain age for you? Or as humans, are we having moments of Clarity on a regular basis depending if we constantly searching for answers? Why do we even look for answers?
Yes- I believe that its a natural process of life in where even though everything in your life seems to be lined up and set up where stress is eliminated, we as human beings will go on our quest to wonder why it was decided for to be this way. Life is not so transparent just because its not stressful, life happens when a human being decides that life is what he or she makes it and not what others have made it for them,. It’s when a human has a moment of Clarity that he or she regardless of status, decides that they will be in pursuit of whatever they feel they were meant to pursue, be who they want to be, and suffer as much as they want to suffer. The question still remains, when does this Clarity happen for humans or does it even happen for every human?
To know what you want and who you want to be is an incredible feeling for sure- but then you have to navigate all of the things about being a human. If we are born to parents who are highly traditional and structured, you have to figure out a way in which they will accept you as you go on your journey of self discovery. Your conservative parents may freak out that you want to be a star on Broadway or maybe a GoGo dancer. It goes against everything that they believe in and what they live for, but here you are, having the Clarity to feel free to pursue your love of what you feel brings you fulfillment and extreme satisfaction. The same can be said about friends and community. When you get serious about life, it is said that the same friends that you had before, will probably not follow you on your quest because they are not aligned with the same vision that you have for yourself, Maybe their moment of Clarity will come later in life for them, but for now, they enjoy living as if they have no control over life and little to no choices.
Is that it? Is Clarity then-understanding that you have control over your life and what you choose to focus on is created by you? But how long does it take for a human being to realize this type of Clarity? Do some people never realize this type of Clarity or do they and they just can never pursue their dreams because of self limiting beliefs?
If we all are given a conscious and a sub-conscious, I believe that the beauty of this world is that fine balance made up of people who have had Clarity and have done something with it and people who will have their day of Clarity and express that side of themselves accordingly. What a beautiful reality!
With Love and Clarity,
Have you read it? It’s a decent read so far “The subtle art of not giving a f*ck” by Mark Manson. Go figure- a catchy title by a Manson- lol. I like what its saying because it reminds us about how Society has blasted us with why its important to always give a fuck about this and that. Go to school, get good grades, get a decent job, get good pay, and maybe some day you can own a house, a car, a boat, a motorcycle, and all the fancy things that can impress your neighbors. The author emphasizes how after so many years of hearing all of this, we tend to believe it and get caught up in this crazy loop of believing this crap and then crashing because we become so freakin anxious if we don’t attain it. Dang, that was tough to even write it cause in a way its true.
I have worked with couples who’s partner has completely gone off the rails to give too much attention to the “goodies” of life but has forgotten that the true goodies of life are free! The attainment of stuff has become the end goal for many and if one of the partners in a relationship suddenly realizes that there are more important things than to have the mansion with 10 rooms and 4 garages, the order or cycle of giving a f*ck has been broken which can cause a bit of tension. “What, you don’t want the mansion, the yacht, the vacations, and fancy art work?”, but I did all this for you and now you’ve changed! “I never asked for any of these things!” “But I thought it would make you happy?!” F*ck, f*ck, f*cking sh*t! You don’t love me anymore... Lol. But I’m sure that you get the picture of how opposite they could be thinking.
But wait, the author is not saying not to go after the mansions, the golden car, the fancy clothes, and etc. He is simply sharing that if you are not feeling authentic about the person you are becoming and its giving you way more trouble in terms of messing with your brain and physical self, there is another way! He is saying, “Don’t give a F*ck!” If the job you have is paying six figures or a nice to live on income, appreciate it and don’t give a F*ck if you don’t becoming an instant millionaire- but do focus on the things that matter and are free like love, respect, kindness, caring, friendships, and oxygen. The not giving a F*ck strategy doesn’t mean no to care at all, it means that you get to choose what is truly truly important to you. It is a philosophy or a way of thinking that can free you from the brain chains that we have worn for a long time due to the capitalist consumer thinking that we have been brought up on. It can free you in a way in where it will allow you the time to stop and smell the fresh fish at a local market or the fresh flowers at a garden. It’s also not saying that you can’t strive for financial freedom, but you can do it in a way in which it fits your way of being.
With Lots of F*cking Love,
Warnings about the dangers of vaping and or smoking marijuana continue to grow as the country continues to legalize it from state to state. The book above, is one of several youth empowerment books that was written by myself and my co-author, Omar Reza. The angle of this book is from a school counseling perspective due to how this drug had or continues to impact the lives of so many people in a negative way. Don’t get me wrong, I am not against people using marijuana in a controlled responsible manner. I am advocating for the youth or mis-informed people of the dangers that it can create when they are not fully aware of all the risks involved.
Blazing eyes is an exciting story about a little brother’s love expressed in a way that highlights how a middle school student can find help for what can seem like a helpless cause. It all starts with relationship building. Mr. Reza, the school counselor at this particular middle school, had established trust with a student who then shared that information with his best friend Josh who worked up the courage to go and ask for help for his brother Jimmy. Jimmy was starting to show the exact signs that the counseling team had talked about during an assembly about the Dangers of Drugs. It baffles me to this day that we have a tough stance on drugs, a war on drugs, and we continue to hear about the horrors of addiction. Life is gift and our goal is to empower people/the youth especially, to make empowerment choices for themselves.
Here’s a little passage from Chapter 3- Chapter 3
SHOULD I ASK MY COUNSELOR?
The next day at school Josh was feeling anxious. The only thing on his mind was the concern for his brother.
“Josh!” a voice yelled startling Josh out from his daydream.
“What’s the answer?” asked the teacher.
Josh was stumped. He had been thinking so much about his brother that he was caught off guard and didn’t know the answer to the teacher’s question.
Josh had always been quick on his feet so he answered, “16!”
“Good guess,” said the teacher. “The answer is actually 17.”
Josh felt relieved. The last thing he needed that day was to get sent to the office and have to worry his mom with another problem from school.
After class was over, Gilbert searched Josh out and walked over to him. They both gave each other a hand slap and fist pump like they normally did and started walking together to their next class.
“What up bro, how you feeling today?” asked Gilbert with concern. “Have you talked to the counselor yet?”
“No,” Josh responded. “I haven’t yet. I thought that maybe I would just forget all about it. I’ll just fix this by myself.”
“What?!” said Gilbert loudly. “Mr. Reza’s a cool counselor. He can help you with anything. You remember that time when my cousin Bobby died?”
“Ya, I remember,” responded Josh.
“Well, I was real sad because I had grown up with him and I missed him a lot,” Gilbert continued. “I didn’t really know who to talk to about it, and since you were sick that day I thought I’d go talk to Mr. Reza. We talked about all the things that were bothering me, and we even talked about sports. At the end of our talk, I felt a lot better because he helped me focus on other things and not just Bobby.”
Blazing Eyes became a very passionate project for us because we knew that if we could reach one person, it may make a significant difference in their lives. Keep in mind that most of the stories that we write about are told from the real life experiences that we encountered and were privileged to help with. In this case, Jimmy does get the help that he needs, but you have got to read the story at https://www.amazon.com/Blazing-Eyes-Empowerment-Youth-Book-ebook/dp/B00CJD1000/ref=sr_1_2_nodl?ie=UTF8&qid=1432048252&sr=8-2&keywords=blazing+eyes+ebook . We promise that its a fun and quick read, especially for youth that are looking for books that they can relate to and it may even empower them to change their lives in a positive manner.
Ten percent of the proceeds that we raise, are going to rehabilitation programs that are in the trenches helping our youth to overcome the disease of addiction. Please join us in this life changing cause by downloading this book for only $3.99 on Amazon. You too will be helping youth to become their own Super Heroes.
Why make a decision? If you’ve decided to eat healthier, is it more than likely that you will? Or will it just push you to eat whatever and whenever you want- or is that a decision also? Can you contradict yourself? Or does it mean that we are always faced with making many decisions?
Isn’t it no wonder that most people do not like making decisions?! “F*CK... Can’t he just decide where to take me to dinner without having to ask me for an opinion, I will eat whatever, just freaking decide!”, thought everyone at one point in their life. Well maybe almost everybody. But many of us enjoy a non-confrontational life, a life that can be peaceful without the pressures of having to decide what to say, what to wear, what perfume to wear, or how you should act. This is a very natural way of being! Or is it? Let’s imagine the people of the High Tech generation having most of their things done for them by a smart phone and or an iPad or a computer- how do they deal with decision making?
Making a decision is giving yourself permission to make a choice, to have a voice, to matter, to be counted, to have value, to be present, and to have energy! Even the most hardened gang members show these traits to a loyal group of thugs who have claim to have your back no matter what. So a decision can have negative consequences and can also have positive consequences. If you decide to do things from empowering people in a positive way, it is more than likely that the consequences will be positive. If you decide to have a negative impact on people, which makes me wonder if people deliberately know or are fully aware of the damage that they are causing by the decisions that they make.
For example, as a school administrator and school counselor, I reported many incidents to CPS especially the ones in where I knew that students lives were being compromised in a negative way. What was interesting to know that no matter how harsh the situation was, the goal of CPS was to reunite children with their parents and or guardians. Their goal was to educate in order for them to make better decisions about how to raise their children. So everyone is always learning about life and becoming aware of how they can improve their decision making based on the people, situations, and their state of mind at the time of making that decision.
So if you have decided to eat healthier and you do it for one or two days then you find yourself at the last bite of a double double- don’t bash yourself too much cause you can always decide to make a change. That decision will soon hold and you will do it because you believe in your own power and you are doing it for you in order to impact others in a positive way. That’s it- we are here to serve others, and if we continuously learn about our own inner MaxPower, we can better serve those we love, people we come in contact with and ourselves!
Here’s to making amazing Decisions with Love,
Can you feel drunk if you’ve never taken a drink or can you imagine yourself to be drunk? Or do you have to go through the process of drinking an immense amount of liquor in order to feel the physical process? Can you trick your brain to think that it is intoxicated in other words? Some people would have you believe that you can create a similar feeling if you have seen and witness many people drinking many many drinks where it is obvious that they are intoxicated. But the question remains, can you really feel what a drunk person is feeling like if you haven’t gotten drunk.
Here’s my point- there are spiritual mentors who would have you believe that you can create the feeling of wealth even though you haven’t had the opportunity to be considered financially free. Their strategy is to go out and research what the rich do and how they act and try and copy their state of mind and or behaviors in order to create the same feelings. Is it lying to yourself? Is it a false sense of hope? Or does the mind not care about the thoughts that you place upon it and it starts immediately to create an environment equal to the one that you are thinking of. In simpler terms, does the mind go to work on giving anyone what they wish for just because he or she feel a certain way about things? Wouldn’t it be fun to know! Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could create the powerful feelings of owning your dream home, car, yacht, bike, iPad Pro, or anything you want by hacking into your mind and creating the fun feelings associated with having those things.
I bet it would be an awesome feeling watching those things that you most want and need manifest right before your eyes through different opportunities and different people. I know I have worked this magic myself once or twice not knowing exactly the spirituality behind it. I know like many of us, there have been times that I did not know how l was going to resolve a financial situation but my mind went to work on it quickly and it brought about clear solutions and or I envisioned the amount of money that I needed and all of a sudden, it would show up. With this magic, I have attained a lot of the goals that I have set and the final or one of the last goals that I have is to financially wealthy, to be a multi-millionaire so to that I can impact the lives of many people in a positive way. I believe that I will attain this goal the same way that I have attained all of my other goals.
How about you? What dreams, desires, or goals have you had that you have attained by using the secret of feeling your way into them? You know what I mean. When you get that feeling that nothing is going to stop you from achieving or acquiring something, a feeling of pure bliss and confidence overtakes your soul, your conscious and you act and behave accordingly. People even get out of your way or go out of their way to help you achieve your dream because they can feel the intensity in your person. It is vibrating in such a high rate that it is impossible for anyone to not notice.
So again, can you create the feeling of being drunk by not having any alcohol in your system? Can you create the feeling of being a great partner, husband, coach, investor, dad, mom, even if you haven’t become one yet? The answer lies within you. No one can ever tell you what to feel or what to create in order to feel a certain way. FEEL IT GOOD and Feel yourself all the way to success!
With Loving and Wealthy Feelings,
HAPPY NEW YEAR MAXPOWERISTS! WE LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOU... WE BELIEVE IN YOU AND IN THE IMMENSE POWER THAT YOU CONTAIN WITHIN YOU AT EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY... YES, WITH EVERY BREATH THAT WE TAKE, WE CREATE A NEW BEGINNING A NEW MIRACLE! TRY NOT TAKING A BREATH FOR 10 SECONDS AND THEN GO ON FOR ANOTHER MINUTE OR TWO. WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN? FOR MOST, LIFE WILL STOP IN THIS PHYSICAL FORM, BUT FOR MANY LIFE CONTINUES IN THE FORM OF ENERGY. BUT ULTIMATELY, LIFE WILL DIE IF YOU CAN’T BREATHE ANOTHER BREATH.
I didn’t mean to write this with Death in Mind, I actually wrote this wife the beauty and power of life in mind! Yes, a deep appreciation for the gift that you are to this life must always be recognized in order to set the energetic mind set when the challenges of life set in. Think about it, every time you fall asleep, our own bodies have a way to automatically breathe and circulate for us while we are not conscious. Our minds have a way to bring us magical ideas, creative ideas, and or horrors depending on what energy you are bringing to bed with you. I am trying to help you and reinforce in myself that we are incredibly powerful spiritual beings. It is in our nature to forget and take for granted this immense power especially these days with so many many distractions. But if we keep it simple, turn inward and realize that we are creating every second of the day with our breath and our mind- cause our mind needs oxygen to think, therefor - WOW! And oxygen is free! What we choose to do with the rest is on us... thus the saying, be careful what you wish for!
A new beginning is refreshing- seeing our kids continue to thrive, our families enjoying themselves, and ultimately, growing from our most tragic challenges. But what is our most tragic challenges? We even decide how to put a definition to any event we experience! We can choose to connect to our spiritual essence and enjoy the amazing gifts life has granted us and or we can just sit around and become a casualty of life by thinking that life happens to you. You are that powerful!
To an Amazing MaxPower Journey this 2020- With Love,
Our deepest fear- what is it? That if we let our light shine, we might be more powerful than we can ever fathom. Of course I am paraphrasing from Mary Louise’s famous poem, “Our Deepest Fear”. In essence we must discover, understand, and then accept the light we have been granted in order to help someone else discover their own light and continue the cycle.
I believe that the amount of effort it will take to help others discover their own light depends on what their journey will allow and its all in God’s time! No, its not even religious, but if it helps, its what it is. Light is the energy you share whether negative or positive. Where does it come from? Doesn’t it come from our beliefs? And where do our beliefs come from. They come from those we come in contact with and their energy- and most of the time, we don’t even question where their beliefs came from either. Or do you? Stop and think about that a bit. Ask yourself why you belief the way you do and why you believe those who were important in your life without asking where their beliefs came from. Then ask yourself, have you ever caught anyone lying to you for a reason that benefitted them or their friends, group, or community club. Did our own parents lie to us and we knew it, but we let it slide because it was our parents and we thought that they had all the reason in the world to bend our reality a bit. But why would they let us believe this way? Was it to hurt us?
Who ultimately is in charge of our thoughts and our beliefs? Are you, the government, the pope, the neighbor, the education system? Well, if you don’t realize soon enough that you are in total charge of your thoughts, everyone else will be able to manipulate you into thinking how they want you to think. Can you change a belief is probably what your thinking? Think about it, I am sure that you have changed your mind about a thing or two because you did not agree with how people were thinking about a certain situation and it didn’t flow with your own thoughts. So you see, you do have the amazing power of changing your thoughts and your beliefs. Some will take more work than others because we have certain forces working to keep those beliefs in tact. The more you believe this with all your heart, the more you will be able to allow you light to shine brightly and thus, allowing yourself to be the light for someone else.
Xmas signifies the good in people- the best in people and the love in people! It is the miracle of our humanity and most people love to be reminded of that magic in all of us which lives in us each and every day. But why does it come out in Xmas more so than in other Holidays? Or is that just an assumption? I think miracles will manifest anywhere any time we need them, but it takes the key ingredient- the key ingredient of Love.
Why do people feel that they have been given permission to express more love during Xmas? Is it because one resigns to the fact that they will have to spend forced time with loved ones so why not give in and maybe if they think that you care about them, the gift might be a bit better? Lol, I’m not saying that this is the one and only outlook on Xmas, but I have heard many people feel as if they are obligated to spend that time with family even if they wouldn’t if they could choose.
I am very sure that there are extremes, that there are many people who hold this Holiday sacred for the strong beliefs that have shaped their connection with what Xmas is all about. Do you know anyone who goes all out for Xmas and literally transforms into a new person for the month of December or even January only to return to the grumpy person they were after the Holidays?
How long has this gone on? Xmas has gone on forever and ever since the early days and I bet that people looked forward to Xmas miracles in the days before cars and or the internet. I bet communities thrived on the love of Xmas and the love of giving.
Xmas miracles can happen to everyone and many have happened for me personally, even when it wasn’t Xmas. But Xmas did make it that much more special. Have you ever thought about the miracles that happened for you around Xmas? Would you be willing to share them? Love to hear those stories...

Have you ever not done something because FEAR sets in every time you try to convince yourself that you are ready to finally tackle that thing that you want to accomplish? Where does this so called FEAR come from? And why the heck is it so strong over us? Aren’t we in charge of how we are supposed to feel anyway? So then why do most people give into the demon of FEAR?
Each and every one of us has abilities and some are stronger than others! If you are a strong reader, strong speaker, strong hands on person, strong parent, strong bodybuilder, strong runner, strong brother, strong friend, strong accountant, strong lawyer, strong doctor, strong teacher, strong counselor, and etc, and etc., embrace whatever it is you have noticed you have a strong knack for and go with it! Continue to improve that ability, that skill and be the best at it that you can be.
In doing so, please remember that there is no real competition with others and that the only competition that exists, exists within you and against yourself. Yes, the best athletes in the world understand this very clearly. Of course you play against someone else, but before you play that game against anyone, each and every team player has to look within themselves and check themselves in order to bring their best to that competitive field. You can see it as a competition or you can see it as an opportunity to understand that you can excel or improve in an area that will get you better prepared in case your teammates or opponents are not.
If you haven’t figured out what you’re strong at quite yet, you will - sooner than later. If you find that you like to take the lead in certain situations at home or at work, you could be a strong leader! If you find yourself being obsessed with wanting to have everyone follow the rules then you might want to focus your energy into a law enforcement field. If you like reading code and figuring out how to design websites, apps, and or creating easier ways to play with your smart phone, then you probably guessed you should pursue something in that field.
Everyone has a strength and we must embrace it because that’s where our passions lie! And if you listen to the experts about following your passions, you just might find yourself living a super fulfilled life filled with exciting rewards which will be mostly spiritual in nature. Making a positive difference in the lives of people is truly the number one thing that everyone either agrees to or comes to realize. EMBRACE YOUR STRENGTHS!!!
Everything has Greatness within! Do you believe this? Like the oranges in the picture, their greatness lies in the ability to serve as a form of food, vitamin, drink, decor, and etc. The oranges don’t even have to think in order to be have greatness.
There are many other fruit plants, flowering plants, vegetable plants, and etc. that have their own greatness!
Now imagine your greatness as a human being! Just sit back and think about it. Yes, deeply think about it. What are the great things that you can do? Even if you can’t think of any for yourself, think of the great things that other human beings have done. How have they served humanity, how have they discovered and invented things that have served humanity, and how they have led to inspire and change humanity for the better.
There are much simpler yet miraculous things you can do which are considered great! You can determine your morning, your afternoon, and your entire existence if and when you get in touch with the magic of your massive greatness! When you discover that you truly do have this opportunity, you will see the world in a unique and highly powerful way. If you once saw the world as having full control over you, you will soon understand that you have always had control over your world.
Explore your magic- sit back and think about why things in your reality are the way they are. Then understand that your mind is where all of it is happening! YES - all of your reality is determined by what you choose to think about all day. If we know this is true, then why aren’t most people in tune with their magic? Well, the mind is an interesting organ- it functions by what has been planted there by those it came in contact with. Your parents/guardians and etc. are the biggest influencers. Most of your thoughts are not originally yours. It will be your job, your task, your magic to figure which thoughts are serving you and which are not. Then you can change the ones that hurt you and keep you from taking action to becoming a confident person who pursues their magic!
With Magic Love,
Do you think that a hummingbird is aware that he or she is a tiny little bird that flies with amazing speed and gives joy to a lot of people? Do you think it knows that they play an important role in pollinating flowers and adding to the eco system of this great Earth? Maybe they are fully aware and they actually become and do everything that a hummingbird is here to do.
Have you ever thought about what it truly means to be human, what your role here on Earth is, and what potential you were granted? I want to encourage you to start a journey of self discovery if you haven’t already done so. You will not regret taking on this journey because what you will find is that the most important treasures have always been inside of you. But where?
All your treasures lie within your mind! Yes, even though you think that you don’t think you have abilities in your mind, think about it- just the fact that you think that you don’t have abilities is an ability. Without you being able to think that you don’t have it really means that you do have it. If and when you understand this, you will be amazed at the awareness that you will be giving yourself. And once you give yourself this awareness, no one can ever take it from you and you will feel like sky is the limit. You will not feel like a puppet anymore, you will feel like your in full control of what you can create by using the amazing forces of your mind!
I want to wish you a great journey of discovery and a journey of self love! It will be the grandest gift that you give yourself!
A mind that is made up is a mind that takes a path of making something come to be regardless of the challenges that get in the way. A mind made up is a mind that will not take no for an answer despite the difficulties that present themselves. A mind made up is a mind that is going to create opportunities and circumstances which will produce a win type environment.
Can you think of a time that you made up your mind that you were going to do something no matter what? Can you think of how it made you feel before, during and after you got the results that you wanted? Is anyone capable of this? Yes or no, why or why not?
Our minds are like a garden because we can choose to plant or intake any information we want to make a part of our soul. The more positive energy type of mind seeds that we intake and plant, the better we will be at sowing and reaping the rewards of our made up mind. Everything about our lives is tied together to what are minds are exposed to and to what we produce with our thoughts based on the seeds we choose to plant.
The power of the mind is immense! The power of our mind is limitless! The power of the mind is love!
Why use affirmations? I think that before a person truly buys in to using affirmations, they must understand why they would even use them or how they’re true magic works. A person has to make sense of their mental abilities and how their mind actually works so that they can create the best possible strategies and environments for the work that it takes.
Yes, the mind has a reason and a purpose to work and many people unfortunately do not look into the inner magical powers that they possess within their mind. Some people amass a great fortune and unbeknownst to them, they don’t really know how they acquired such wealth and or position of opulence. On the contrary, some people acquire many degrees and or opportunities, but wealth and opulence seems to escape them or they barely make it by.
But why? Why wouldn’t we all be programmed to have a massive bank account, a huge mansion, no bills, incredible vacations, the car of our dreams, the most awesome experiences, and etc?
Why do we all have free will or the ability to create our own thoughts about wealth, opulence, health, and success? And why are most people comfortable with just getting by or being comfortable when they can have as much as they program themselves to have? Why?
Should we go back to affirmations? But wait, what is this business about free will. Why would we consider affirmations if we have the free will to just think and be as who we are? Exactly! If you feel and think that you don’t need to create a strategy to possibly move into the arena of wealth, prosperity, great health, and opulence, then why would you? Don’t, it’s your mind, it’s your prerogative to use the greatest gift to this planet any which way you like. Many people, but not too many, have taken the plunge to get to know the inner workings of their minds and that’s okay, but is it?
I have heard that our minds have the power, the ability to heal harsh diseases, fears, distress, bad relationships, and can ultimately create amazing results in one’s reality. But how? How do we get rid of the negative/bad realities that we feel are on our shoulders? How do we let these negative things go or have them disappear from our lives? The easy answer is affirmations... the mind will receive what it is fed and what it believes. The way that you start making the mind receive new information and purge the old is to repeat repeat and then repeat more until your mind accepts the new information you believe to be true. That’s it... that’s the magic!
Get to work, and if you need further information on your mind, get out there and do the research or wait until... Until what? Remember that it is your mind and yours alone.. figure it out...
If I asked you to think of a green praying mantis, would you be able to think of such a beautiful insect as in the picture above? What if you saw the picture several times? What if you actually got up close and personal to see one in person? Of course our vision of the green praying mantis would expand. It would expand to the point of us being able to see the complimentary colors that give it the ability to camouflage itself amidst the lovely plants of this earth. What do we use to camouflage ourselves from others on this beautiful human journey?
How do we use our minds to help expand our vision of who we are or of who we are becoming?
Or do some people give up on the process of expanding themselves? Is it their fault or do they not have any control over how their thoughts can expand? Dr. Wayne Dyer stated that “Wherever your thoughts go, energy flows”. If life is energy and thoughts can make energy flow, wouldn’t we want to keep a massive focus on something that can be of positive consequence and not something that would be negative. Our minds never stop thinking so we are always always creating energy! But what kind of energy are we creating? We have the special power of creation- we have the ability to create almost any situation within our realistic capacity. We can expand our thoughts to live like painters of our own lives. But as simple as it sounds, it really can be, but there is some work to it. It all depends on how many mind/thoughts blocks which will make it easier or tougher to break through the things that camouflage our thoughts. The key is in expanding your want and need to learn about how the mind works and then putting in the work. After all, it is our own mind and we can choose to expand in it what we want to focus on, even if its a green praying mantis.
Without consistency, can anything get accomplished? Quick question- Can you get fit by going to the gym once, twice, or do you have to be consistent and go maybe 4 to 5 times a week to see a difference in your workouts? How about when you’re trying to lose weight? Can you have a salad at lunch and continue to eat chips and donuts the rest of the day in order to lose weight? No freaking way! You have to consistently be mindful of what type of body building foods you’re putting in your body.
Does this apply with everything in life? Is this a law that must be recognized and respected? Absolutely! In order to become an Olympian, an athlete has to consistently work on their craft. The same with an artist, a singer, a CEO, a Speaker, a teacher, a counselor, a doctor, a lawyer! Whatever the occupation or passion is, one must work at what they do consistently in order to be highly effectively each and every time they go out to perform.
Yes, you can have the know how, listen to motivational speakers, attend seminars, but its consistency that is going to take you to the level of high performance. You have to perform and adjust that performance to meet the next goal and then the next goal etc. A habit is only formed through the practice of consistency! You can change a paradigm through the law of consistency and follow through!

What if you could become a world famous artist? What if you could become the MVP of the NBA? What if you could become a brain surgeon? What if you could earn enough money to pay the mortgage for this month? What if you could walk after being told that you would never walk? What if you could make someone’s day brighter? What if you could own the world’s fastest horse? What if you could... And the answer to this is? You guessed it- it all depends on what one is willing to believe, to accept, and to be real about what they are capable of. Of course not everyone can do the same thing as great because we all have very unique forces working within us, around us, and for us depending on how we were taught to harness such powers. Some people were never taught and may or may never realize their greatest power in this lifetime but maybe the next.
What if we could see into our next lifetime? What if we could invent the internet? What if we could teleport? What if we could visit China from the comfort of our own homes? What if we could enjoy the riches of our mind and soul? What if we could love and be loved for who we are with out conditions? What if we could become prosperous from the thing we love to do? What if we were able to make a difference in someone else’s life just because we decided to show up? What if ... What if ...
You and I know that all of the what if’s turn into beautiful realities after we put some work and some thought into it. Yes, we are governed by our thoughts and until people realize how the magic of thinking works, they will continue to ask- What if?
A trillion cells is the beauty of your being! And each of those cells rely on a connection with nature- How? Well, we need water, oxygen, and nutrients to sustain our physical being and where do these elements come from? You’re absolutely right- from nature! They are actually things that are given to us naturally from this planet, this vast Universe. So who are we connected to? We rely on this beautiful and natural connection in order to exist in a physical form so we are one with the other infinite cells that make up this great life! Knowing this, you can never be alone, or can we?
If we rely on physical connections, we must also rely on spiritual connections. Where do these spirituality connections come from? They can only exist if we are able to construct a thought! Therefore if we think, we can perceive certain things in a certain way. There must be great mentors who teach us how to think and who guide us on a path of deeper thinking, but why? Because we rely on spiritual/human to human connections from the very beginning. If our human host is closely connected to the universal powers, we will then start our journey of physical life on an empowerment jolt! If our human host is not aware of their immense power, it is going to take us a lifetime to possibly become aware of this power.
It is my goal to create an awareness in all humans of their powers so that they become empowered hosts in order to create a much more harmonious human existence that will create wonderful connections between the universal energy that we are all connected to.
The reason that you live is due to the fact that you can think! The fact that you can think, gives you control over your mind. The difference between those who see the world with gratitude and those who see themselves as victims.
The only way we can see ourselves in any capacity, is that we have the capacity to form a thought. Before anything happens, before you decide to either do something or not do something, a thought has to cross your mind. The thoughts are your choice, but the people who have a victim mentality, don't think that they have choices. They think that the world is doing things against them and making things difficult for them.
People who a grateful attitude always seem to think of what they can contribute and create for the goodness of all. Again, they know that they have a choice as to how they choose to see their world. This empowers them to think and to believe that everything is in alignment with their power of thought.
It sounds more complicated than it really is, but someone said that the hardest job in the world to do is to "think". Those who realize this and dedicate some time to this powerful gift of creative thinking will be empowered and smiling for many days to come.
Be an empowered thinker!
