“Look back in your life and see how you have attracted either happiness or disaster through your words. The subconscious has no sense of humor. People joke destructively about themselves and the subconscious takes it seriously. It is because the mental picture you make while speaking impresses the subconscious and works out on the external. A person who knows the power of the word becomes very careful of his conversation. He has only to watch the reaction of his words to know they do not return void. People make their worst mistakes by speaking while they are angry or resentful, because there is so much ill-feeling back of their words. Owing to the vibratory power of words, what you voice, you begin to attract. Invisible forces are every working for man, who is always pulling the strings for himself, though he does not know it.”

As you celebrate these holidays of freedom and resurrection, see how its messages guide you.
The Golden Rule – Be Kind To Others. Be kind to every living creature. Be kind to you.
A wise woman said, “There is always a nice way to say everything.”
A wise man said, “Everything you say should be true, but not everything true should be said.”
Life is precious. People may not remember what you said, but they always remember how you made them feel. People are very sensitive.
Be kind and watch the magic happen.
“In life we cannot always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
“Kindness is a language that we all can understand. Even the blind can see it and the deaf can hear it.”

One day in 1983 in a flower shop off Broadway in the east village of NYC, I was having fun picking out flowers like I do every week. Someone next to me in the store was also enjoying the beauty of the moment and we started talking. She was an elegant woman named Francesca and I noticed a twinkle in her eye. As our conversation continued I could sense that Francesca was a spiritual person and a lot of fun. I shared some information about a transformational seminar I was very excited about and invited her to join me next week at the event.
The seminar, “The Power of Acknowledgement,” was developed and taught by a wonderful and enlightening man named Michael Wyman. Sure enough, Francesca showed up and we had a great time. We became good friends and worked closely with Michael for many years expanding our consciousness and helping others. We made a difference. We remain dear friends even since I moved out to California in 1995.
Francesca, or “Fabulous Francesca” as I call her, is one of my inspirations and teachers. We met over thirty years ago in a flower shop and life presented us with the gift of friendship that lasts forever. What a blessing!
Over the years, Fran has truly been fabulous to me and for me. I am a better person and being because of our friendship and I continue to learn from her example. It turned out that Francesca was very interested in metaphysics, spirituality and natural medicine and she opened up a world of new information to me along with Michael back in the early 1980′s. Fran is still one of my closest advisors and mentors. It was a very special time and I was a sponge soaking up all of the good energy and information.
There are people in your life that deserve to be acknowledged, recognized and appreciated for who they are and their contribution to you and others. Share the gift of friendship and flowers to those you care about and to yourself.
Do you take time to “smell the flowers” and do things in nature and in life that fulfill your soul? You never know when the universe will send blessings and abundance or how it will show up. In this case, the universe sent me one of the most wonderful angels named Fabulous Francesca and I am so thankful!

Common story – a friend called as he was in a tough situation with his girlfriend. Although he is a good and caring person, he couldn’t create and enjoy harmony, intimacy, fulfillment and true communication with his partner – even though he really wanted to.
Men and women have different ways to communicate. Even with good intentions, the end results can be painful.
In this case, my friend did not know his partners love languages and most importantly their ranking. A persons love language and their ranking determines their fulfillment, satisfaction and feeling loved. By the way, he also did not know his own love language. It can be pretty interesting when someone thinks they know either their own love languages and ranking. Your thoughts and life can be quite different experiences at times.
People have different styles of communicating and letting each other know that we care. “The 5 Love Languages” is a wonderful book by Gary Chapman.
During the early days of our relationship, this book and information helped my wife and I develop a successful and loving way to communicate. We could transcend life’s challenges. We were able to listen to each other in a caring way and share our feelings without hurting or attacking the other person. We developed new strategies to communicate the difficult feelings and share them in a way that works. We continue to do this on a regular basis.
Have you noticed that during the first two years of relationship you and your partner create the basic patterns that determine how you communicate and ultimately the success or failure of your relationship? How you navigate “the bumps” or the challenges determines if you remain together long term and your ability to create intimacy, trust, unconditional love and true communication?
We each have a predominant love language. Which is yours? Which is your partners? What about your parents and children? You may respond to each of the 5 languages, but every person has a definite ranking. You need to know both yours and your partners to feel truly and deeply loved and cared for. You may not effectively be reaching the person you care about because you are not using their top strategy that makes them feel loved. Even if you touch them, if their top love language and strategy is not satisfied, they will not feel totally loved.
Tune in tomorrow for the magical 5 Love Languages.
