little Ellie Challis tore the hearts of many in the world when they watched her take her first steps on prosthetic legs. At 16 months old the "little hero" defied the odds of survival after she she contracted bacterial meningitis. To survive she suffered the loss of all four of her limbs.
Remarkably a month ago the adorable 7 year old champion won a position on her school soccer team. Ellie is "football made" according to her dad. Her favorite team is Arsenal and she watches all the games.
Two days ago her mother Lisa said: "She is just the most gutsy and remarkable child."... Read More
When you think about your personal heroes, what names come to mind: a parent, sibling, action figure, military veteran, or stranger you witness saving a life? Maybe it’s the elderly lady selflessly serving free Thanksgiving meals inside the homeless shelter, an ER Doctor working exhaustively for three days straight, or just someone that reaches out their car window at an intersection handing over a dollar bill to a stranger in need. No matter who they are, we all want, and wish for someone who’s larger than life.
Heroes come in many shapes, forms and patterns, and they don’t always... Read More
Most of us start life with a self, an authentic yet undeveloped self, from which we build an identity designed to interface with the world we gradually discover is around us. There are as many kinds of souls as pebbles on a beach, and yet the majority of us end up looking and behaving so much alike.
This conformity allows us to adopt a social role and function in a society of others; the more diverse our habits and behaviours the less cohesive will be the group. And yet no matter how conventional we appear be, all of us are in a constant dialogue between our inner selves and the world... Read More
We live and breathe and have our existence in a sea of energy that is shaped, molded and manifest through conscious thought. All that exists is thought made manifest. To the ancient mystics, this was called the tapestry of life. In modern times it is the string theory of quantum physics. Remember, there is no lack of energy in the Universe.
DO NOT give any attention to things that you do not want in your life. All that does is to feed energy into that which you do not desire. Do not adopt the attitude that there is no way that you can have what you desire simply because you do... Read More
The Universe operates according to set laws and the co-creators need to be aware of those laws if they are to be successful in their efforts to consciously create their own reality. Keep you in mind; you are constantly creating your reality now albeit on an unconscious level. If you want to know what you think about the most, what you are emotional about and what you believe in strongly all you need to do is look at your life. Your currently reality is merely a reflection of what is occurring in your mind.
Visualization is a key in creating your own reality. If you think that you... Read More
In my book, "Jesus Taught It, Too: The Early Roots of the Law of Attraction," the importance of 'gratitude' as a key in the successful conscious use of the Law of Attraction is made clear.
In a polite society we say "thank you" after we receive a gift. While that is nice, it not exactly the way the Universe works. Many falter in the manifestation process because they believe that they do not already have what they want. After all, if you cannot see it or touch it, it is not there right? Wrong! Anything and everything that you could possibly want or desire is all around you. It is in... Read More
Although “the final surrender” is frequently used as a reference to the moment when life ends, it is not necessarily about death; change, when it finally occurs, is a process of surrendering that evolves from a physical, mental and spiritual convergence so compelling that it defies description.
The best that can be achieved is learning how to articulate what is experienced on as many levels as possible so that what is being expressed can be identified by others with familiarity that rings true in their own lives.
Putting one’s self in someone’s shoes, a difficult achievement,... Read More
