This saying became my mantra for a year. I copied it out, decorated it with a drawing and put it on my wall. (I also insisted it went into the communal kitchen for everyone else to see!)  Every time I read it, something deep inside me shifted. 


Don’t waste your life for that which is going to be taken away. Trust Life.

If you trust only then can you drop your knowledge

only then can you put your mind aside.

And with trust something immense opens up.

Then this life becomes full of God, overflowing.

When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared you are bridged with infinity.

And you are not deceived; there is nothing that can be taken away from you.

That which can be taken away is not worth keep and that which cannot be taken away form you, why should one be afraid of it being taken away?

It cannot be taken away, there is no possibility. You cannot lose your real treasure.

From Osho Zen Tarot Cards






Forgiveness Prayer

 I forgive everyone who has ever hurt or harmed me, consciously or unconsciously, in this lifetime or any other in this Universe, dimension, plane or level of existence, or any other.


I ask forgiveness for everything I have ever done to hurt or harm another consciously or unconsciously, in this lifetime or any other in this Universe, dimension, plane or level of existence, or any other.


 I forgive myself for everything I have ever done to hurt or harm another consciously or unconsciously, in this lifetime or any other in this Universe, dimension, plane or level of existence, or any other.



Thanks to Laa’iqah Ebrahim for sending this to me!


It’s easy to get over serious about spiritual matters but nothing could be farther from the truth. Having fun replenishes your energies and keeps them moving. And what are those energies but very Soul itself. If you want to keep aligned to your Soul, it’s absolutely essential to have fun.

I recently worked on a challenging project and towards the end, the delivery date, I noticed how locked on to the task I was, and how little enjoyment I was getting from doing it. Right then and there I decided ‘if I’m going to do this (which I definitely was) I going to enjoy it!’. That choice didn’t change what I was doing. It changed something a lot more important – my approach and my energies. And although I was still concerned about how it was going to pull together, I was more resolute I would enjoy it. What a difference that made!
So this week I urge you whether you are reconciling your bank statements from way back when, studying for an exam, doing cold calls or washing the dishes, decide, really really decide that if you’re doing it, you’re going to have fun while you are. Fun is a simple choice away! One that your Soul is longing you to take.


Tuning into your Soul, the overlighting intelligence and energy of your life is as simple as four easy steps, taking no longer than 3 minutes a day.

These steps are:

1. find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed
2. set the alarm clock for three minutes
3. close your eyes and bring your attention on your breathing.
4. breathe in for the count of 4, pulling air into the tummy so that it expands, hold it for a second, and then softly exhale for the count of 6, hold it for a second. Repeat this breathing until your alarm clock goes.
At first you might find your mind chips in, chattering away about what you need to do or other such stuff. When that happens, gently bring your attention back to the process of counting your breaths in and out. Just become breathing and counting, counting and breathing. With practice easier and a feeling of deep peace enters in.
The beauty of this is that starting off each day with this exercise gives you a sense of control of your life. Even more exciting is the scientific fact that this type of breathing releases feel- good chemicals in the brain (serotonin).
‘Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of it – right in the hub of the wheel – not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place, where you can get frayed and crazy. The hug of calmness, that your heart, that where God lives within you, where you will always find peace. ‘  Anon

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 9: Practical tips

Money does grow on trees!
All too often we spend our time thinking about money. That creates problems. Your relationship with money goes beyond thought patterns and beliefs, it’s a cellular affair too. Including simple daily activities is incredibly helpful to shifting stuck and unhelpful cellular memories and feelings about money for the better.
For those of you participating in the on-line manifesting course, do an audit on what new practices you have learned during the course – and how you are, or are not, implementing them. An essential part of the course is to assess how you are doing relative to your goals. This will help pinpoint areas that still need more energy from you, but equally importantly give you a chance to appreciate your progress.  Such appreciation is the fuel of motivation and enthusiasm.

So, for instance, list all the tools you have learned from my lessons and how you are applying them (or not), what personal insights you’ve had about your relationship to money and what you’ve done with that information (or not), how well you are interacting and sharing with others on the course, using the blog as the communication platform (or not), rate your degree of commitment to the goal from 1 to 10 – and so on.  So please go through this exercise and post up your findings here.


        Start an abundance box or jar. This is a wonderful amazing way to put abundance consciousness into your being. It’s inspired by the Ananda Assisi, a centre near Assisi for the teaching of Paramahansa Yogananda.

Find a bottle, a plastic container or a lovely decorated bag or box. Every day put in an amount of money that you consider negligible, 5 cents for example. This ensures you do the exercise without fear. As you put the money in the box, close your eyes and say ‘Teach me to feel that Thou are the power behind all wealth and the value within all things. Finding thee first I will find all things in Thee. Help me to manifest material and spiritual abundance through the realisation of the Oneness of all things and the universal source of supply.

Also create a separate compartment in the abundance box. I call this my giving compartment into which I sometimes add a small amount to that saying ‘Teach me to give appropriately.’ I have an urge to give away money and this is helping me give from a sacred space not a conditioned  one.

        Symbolically uplift your handling of money. This provides a critical change point in your subliminal relationship with money.People with money issues have an entangled and ambivalent relationship with money.
  1. Tidy up your purse. Scrappy credit card slips stuffed randomly into your purse show disrespect, repelling money.
  2. Whenever you give or receive money, take a moment to mindfully put it in your wallet, blessing it irrespective of how much it is.
  3. When I receive cash I put it in the centre of a nice brass tray, and then lay a rose quartz crystal on top of it. Everytime I see that crisp R100 note adorned with a beautiful crystal something in me leaps in an uplifting and positive way. I rather fancy that this is healing many years of secretly believing that money is the root of all evil.
4.    EXERCISE 4
         Start doing an active blessing on your food. Since manifesting money is a heart affair, and your heart is more than likely closed to money, this practise will teach you to open your heart at will. Hold your hands over your food, close your eyes, get the picture of the plant or animal from where the food came and then bless it with all your being. Then bless the over lighting intelligence that guides that plant or animal form, giving deep thanks that this intelligence exists on the earth. Then think of the whole system of mother nature and fully appreciate the wisdom that created the earth. If I’m eating fish for example, I think about the oceans and the sun, and give thanks for them too. By this time my heart is wide open. I then gives thanks to all the people involved. If I have the luxury of eating organic, I thank that farmer for choosing to work with mother nature.  I then thank everyone involved in getting the food from the farm onto the supermarket shelves, trucks, trains, shelf packers – the lot! This process, repeated over and over unexpectedly taught me to open my heart at will, and that’s a useful skill when it comes to money!
        Later in the course you will use it to attract money, but for now, don’t entangle money stuff with heart stuff. Just learn to open your heart to magnificence of food, nourishment and eating.

You now have 4 very practical ways to build a fabulous relationship with money. Including these practises in your life helps you feel divinely favoured and in tune with all of life. When that happens, all of life will suddenly expand to include the money that comes from trees, the silver and gold that come from deep earth. And then you’ll be on your way to mega money. Yay!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 6: The ‘HOW’ of How Your Soul Guides You to Mega Money Goals

One of the most important personal discoveries I have made, one that has transformed my understanding and trust in how Spirit helps with the right decision, is the role of impulses.
So what exactly is this impulse and how does it work in helping you make the right decision?The defines impulse the following way: ‘An impelling force; an impetus. The motion produced by such a force. [In] Electronics. A surge of electrical power in one direction.’ This technical definition reveals an impulse as a force that produces movement in a certain direction, and that’s just what my divine impulse theory is all about.
Many people have an expectation that Spirit will speak to them in their head. Our Western thinking, so powerfully shaped by the Christian religion, is full of references to moments when God spoke to people and gave them direct instructions. It’s only natural therefore, that whether or not we practise or subscribe to a Christian viewpoint or not, the idea of spoken guidance from Spirit is an expectation.
Whilst Spirit can and does communicate in a speaking way, I believe it’s an exception, not the rule. Spirit does however, I believe, speak to us regularly – by an impulse – a surge of power which pushes us in a certain direction. Since most people expect divine words to be whispered into their ears, when these impulses happen most people don’t even notice them, let alone act on them.
Think of an impulse as an urge, add an ‘S’ for soul, and you have surge – a surge of desire! I think of this impulse/surge guidance system much like surfers on the sea. They sit on their surf boards and wait for that perfect wave. They can’t make the waves come, but when the right one starts to form, they, quick as lightening jump, on their boards ready to ride it. key to not is that they don’t make the power or direction of the wave. They simple use it to have the experience they want.
Guidance operates in the same way. It simply arises and we need to take it. In If we don’t ride it when it’s happening, the moment is lost, so sensitising ourselves to the action of these impulses is key.
When I moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town in 1994 an impulse helped me. I had selected an area where I wanted to live but couldn’t find a house in my price range.
After exhausting all the ‘normal’ ways to achieve this goal (like calling estate agents, looking in the newspapers) I decided to let go and let Spirit lead me. I started to affirm ‘I find the perfect house in the perfect place at the perfect price in the perfect way.’Resting peacefully in this self-talk I stopped my own efforts. Not long after this a sudden urge/surge/ idea, hit me: call the school in the area and ask if they know of anybody who had a house they wished to let. I immediately responded by picking up the phone (I rode the surge the minute it hit!). The secretary was a little cold when I explained the purpose of my call, and reminded me that they were a school not an estate agent. Nonetheless, she took my details.
A few weeks rolled by and in the course of my business activities I was asked to travel down to Cape Town. A day or two before I left, I received an unexpected telephone call. You’re guessing right, yes, it was the school secretary, saying that surprise, surprise the headmistress’s daughter had a house she wanted to let out The outcome?  I got a house at a rental lower than my budget via an all expenses paid trip. Elegant and easy. I had indeed I found the perfect house in the perfect place at the perfect price in the perfect way. It materialised because I was mad enough to act on an impulse.
Impulses are information packets of force which explode into our energy body, also known as our subtle body, sparking off a desire or an urge to do something. Impulses, waves of energy push us towards the goal that represents Spirit’s higher will – and those are the sort of decisions we want to take. This dynamic applies to your Soul and personal goals too. All of life is poised ready and able to help you ride the wave to mega money!

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 5: The first tool I used to Manifest R100 000

Conscious breath is the first contact with the Divine. This beautiful saying, taught to me by a healer, Colyn van Dyk, is a key tool to manifesting mega money. I used this technique to manifest the R100,000.00 in six weeks. I still do. I used this technique to make daily choices, big or small. I still do. I used this technique to tap into my Divine Purpose. I still do. I used this technique to become present with myself. I still do. Conscious breathing is the first contact with the Divine – within and without.
In the type of world that we live in it is easy; in fact it’s common to have every single moment of our time filled with an activity. However it has been my experience that authentic success depends upon spending time in quiet contemplation. Being able to discover your power is dependent on getting to know your inner self. You can only do this if you spend time going within.
When we take ourselves out of the noise of daily living, we are able to really find out where we are at and develop a strong and reliable relationship with our intuition. A lot of people are so busy that they don’t really don’t know where they are at. Most people agree, however few get around to making time to be on their own doing nothing. It’s easier to veg out watching TV than to sit quietly in contemplation.
The best way to get going is to commit to 3 minutes of inner contemplation per day. Three minutes, that’s not difficult is it? When I used this 3 minute approach I soon found that my resistance to doing quiet time fell away. I promised myself I’d not leave the house without having my quiet time, and it had miraculous results. That was 12 years ago and I still do this most days.
Making sure I didn’t leave the house before I had done my three minutes allowed my inner self, the part of me that holds my life blueprint, the part that is connected to infinite wisdom, to have a say in my world. This is how I got in touch with the knowledge of what I should be doing, and how, how big my money goals should be, and how I should go about achieving them.
Your Soul, the overlighting intelligence of your life, is fully involved with the nitty gritty of day to day stuff. For example, at the end of a busy day settling in after a business trip, I was sitting watching TV when, out of the blue, an image of my hand throwing some papers into the rubbish bin earlier in the day just popped up into my mind.
Having settled down to watch a soapy, the last thing I was trying to do was tap into some profound insight or think about paperwork, but as the image flashed through my mind, I realised that the papers in the image were in fact not only my flight voucher, but the cheque my client had given me at the end of the workshop.
No prizes for guessing that I immediately leapt up, looked in the bin, that there it was, the very cheque, that I hadn’t even known was missing! The investment of the three minutes of private connecting each day enabled me to be ahead of my own conscious thought process and activities. Now if that’s not a benefit nothing is. And how useful would that be in your process of changing your patterns, responses and attractor factor when it comes to money. 
1. find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed
2. set the alarm clock for 3 minutes
3. close your eyes and bring your attention on your breathing.
4. breathe in for the count of 4, pulling air into the tummy so that it expands, hold it for 2 second2, and then softly exhale for the count of 6, hold it for 2 second2. Repeat this breathing until your alarm clock goes.
At first you might find your mind chips in, chattering away about what you need to do or other such stuff. When that happens, gently bring your attention back to the process of counting your breaths in and out. Just become breathing and counting, counting and breathing. With practice easier and a feeling of deep peace enters in. This connection with your Soul is the very source of guidance you need on how to manifest that mega money you desire! As you do this practise more and more, the information will spontaneously arise in you without effort.
The beauty of this is that starting off each day with this exercise gives you a sense of control of your life. Even more exciting is the scientific fact that this type of breathing releases feel good chemicals in the brain (serotonin). So simply doing the breathing is a potent way to help yourself into a space of being fully who you are – a joyous being! (and now a rich joyous being).

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 4: How I Manifested R100 000 in 6 weeks

Years ago I set a 6 week goal to earn R100,000. The goal came from my YES space and I felt 100% that it was going to happen. I wrote up my goal and put it on my wall to keep me focused. What followed was fab.Whereas before I was battling for every cent, suddenly I got commissioned for talks which paid really really well. I got booked unexpectedly to do training for new clients. Until it suddenly all stopped. As d-day, 9th May 2002, drew near I was still R27 000.00 short. On the final day I was still R27,000.00 short. I felt a little foolish and dejected, that’s true. But what could I do, I resigned myself and moved on.

That weekend I went to clear my post box, something I’d been putting off. Surprise of all surprises, in the mail was a cheque from my Mom’s estate. Guess how much – R26 500 something!  I thought I’d been fully paid out my inheritance, but there was a letter saying that some shares had been sold and here was my portion!  It had been sitting in my post box on d-day! But I was still short of my goal total goal. Then I remembered some clients had purchased books for me in cash. So I took out my purse and by the time I had added that up, I had made my target.

To celebrate that amazing experience I framed the paper on which I wrote my goal. Here’s a picture of it, a picture of that moment when possibility met trust – and the great vortices of the Life Force moved on my behalf to bring about circumstances and situations to achieve my goal in miraculous ways.

So dear mega manifesters, trust life, if only because of this story! Trust life to meet you as you step out into a new way of relating to money. Trust is the way to get a YES in yourself – the way to attract the money you want and desire.
  • To get stressed watching and wanting your financial goal to be achieved.
  • To let go and just forget about it emotionally
 You know which choice is the ONE! So keep practising the techniques. And the next lesson will give you some of the tools and techniques that I used to achieve this. So watch this space and please keep chatting with each other. The energy of interaction is a healing force to help you step up and achieve that goal tucked into your envelope

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 3: Saying YES to your Mega Money Goal

The next step in manifesting your money goal is to turn your attractor switch ON. This involves getting your subconscious mind to line up to your conscious choices. Whilst your conscious mind has embraced your intention, your subconscious needs to be in that space too. Your subconscious beliefs and patterns are responsible for everything that is in your life today, so to change tomorrow, you need to work with the subconscious today. More significantly it is through the subconscious that our Soul speaks to us, so that makes this approach a must!

So today I’m going to give you some information about the conscious and subconscious – its quite a read, but really important to understanding manifesting. It’s an extract from my online Course in Feelings. Ready to turn your manifesting switch ON? Yes, let’s do it!

Conscious Mind
This is the part of the mind that you are aware of. You know it as the voice of the mind – forever commenting on your world. For instance when you are out shopping you might hear it say ‘now, do I want to make roast potatoes or mashed potatoes tonight? The children like mash, but these potatoes are too small’.

It not only sounds like a voice, but the conscious mind gives you mental images too. Along with the words roast potatoes it might show images of delicious potatoes, basting in a pan. And into the voices and image mix, come feelings, for instance if you have happy memories of family dinners where roast potatoes were served, cooking these for supper will be appealing without you even knowing why.

The Subconscious Mind
This part of the mind works below your awareness. It controls things from behind the scenes. For example the subconscious keeps your body functioning, after all you don’t instruct your heart to beat, or digestive juices to be secreted when you eat, or your muscles to contract as you walk. No, that’s all taken care of by the subconscious mind.

Moreover everything you do and have done your entire life, everything you see and have seen, everything about you and your world, has been and continues to be recorded in your subconscious mind. The subconscious is like a camera storing your entire experience of the world, including the zillions of bits you don’t even notice at the time. Although most of us cannot access most of this information it is nonetheless still in our minds, influencing how we think and respond. Most importantly it influences what we attract and what we repel.

The information stored is used by the subconscious as reference points to determine the best course of action in the present. If you have been bitten by a dog as a child, when you encounter one as an adult you will feel fear and avoid going too close. You don’t choose to feel fear. It happens automatically. In this way the past creates the present.

The fear is there to protect you from future pain, and in this way feelings act as your friend. In truth all of your feelings, produced by the subconscious, are there to help keep you safe and alive and it’s important to know and acknowledge this truth. Anger, frustration, sadness, guilt, defensiveness etc once, although helped you survive in the past – emotionally, physically or mentally. Some of your feelings might not help you now or even make sense, but they did at some point.

The subconscious mind not only keeps records but uses the information to run daily affairs in your life, in this case your money matters – how much you attract, how you feel when you receive it, how you feel when you spend it, when and how you save it or spend it etc etc.

When you wish to send a note to someone, you don’t have to say to yourself “now how do I write a ‘d’?” No, your hand simply knows this. Your mind knows this. You never have to remember the steps you were taught, you just go ahead and write. In the same way that it allows us to write without thinking about the task of writing; it guides your relationship to money without conscious thought about what is motivating your choice at the moment.

Your subconscious is responsible for over 90% of everything you think, say or do, every response or feeling. Wow! is that not amazing? And that’s the beauty of it – and the problem of it. It helps you recognise the numbers on your bank statement, but it also tightens your tummy when there is not enough money to pay the bills.

And alongside all the money events of our lives the subconscious has recorded all the feelings associated with them. Many and most of these we don’t remember, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t influencing you right now. Let’s say for example that every time you saved every cent of your pocket money as a little child your brother said that you were stingy. This would bring up negative feelings around saving money, and you might have turned out to be spendthrift. So, without knowing why, you never have any savings and you can’t stop buying stuff.

But what if you actually had a natural flair for knowing what shares to buy on the stock market? Wouldn’t the memories in your subconscious hold you back? Of course! So this week I am going to give you exercises to help you become even more aware of your feelings and behaviours around money. I’m particularly interested in the feelings tthat lie deeply hidden, waiting to steal away the money success you desire. We don’t have to discover all the memories and hey! we don’t have time to dig up every inch of the past either! What we want is simply for you to get in tune with your negative feelings about money so that you can use the information they provide to move on.

I like to think of feelings and intuition as falling into two categories – a YES feeling, and a NO feeling. And, both the person experiencing the feeling and any observant outsider can easily identify which feelings are active by simply looking at body language.

The man on the mountain picture is what a strong YES feeling does to the body. The entire body is open and reaching out into life in a joyful trusting way. A subtle version of this YES feeling would be somebody sitting with their arms and legs uncrossed, shoulders down and a friendly look on their face. No tension in the tummy, no pounding heart or short of breath. When you feel this way when dealing with your money, you know that your conscious and subconscious are lined up to achieve the goal.

A strong NO feeling would be the opposite. The body pulls itself inward, shrinking away from life. A subtle version of the NO feeling would be somebody sitting shoulders hunched, hands clenched, legs and arms pulled into the body by either crossing them or standing very erect and stiff. Spastic colon is also a version of this NO constriction. You probably experienced such bodily responses when stressing about money – or lack of it. I certainly have!

Now first thing to remember is that both YES And NO feelings and expressions are our friend. What! you might say! How can a spastic colon or heart palpitations be my friend? Simple! They give us important information about our money beliefs in the moments. To be clear, a YES is my friend, AND a NO is my friend. A YES tells you that your money attractor switch is ON. A NO feelings tells you that it is OFF.

The more you work with your NO feelings in the right way (which is what I’m going to teach you), the more wonderful YES feelings you will experience. The experience of a NO feeling is the sound of KNOW. When you have NO feeling, you KNOW that you’re repelling money.

Feeling are your friend! Feelings are information delivered straight from the subconscious. YES feelings are the signposts to natural success. YES feelings are like magnets, magnetising into your life everything you need to create abundance money, success and happiness. We all experience a range of YES or NO feelings every day, mostly in less pronounced versions than the YES man pictured above, but either way if we turn our attention to them it’s surprisingly easy to feel whether it’s a NO or YES.

And from now on we will be doing exactly as a regular practise. Over time and with repetition, you will become increasingly sensitised to the opening and closing feelings in your body, the YES and NO of the moment. When that happens you are in touch with essential information about your relationship to money, information that comes from a far greater and more potent source than that of your conscious mind. It comes from your unconscious, your Soul and the supra consciousness. And this is good news as you can use this YES/NO information to guide you to achieve your intention that you have lovingly placed in your envelop.

Practising the lessons

Start a record of what you feel when you think about or work with money in any form, noting whether you get a YESor NO feeling. Every time you take out your wallet to buy something, notice whether your feel open and expressed orclosed and shrunken. Everytime you see money in your bank account, notice whether you get YES/joy or NO/fear. In EVERY interaction with money you will take out your notebook, note the time, circumstance and whether you have a YES or NO sensation in your body. It’s not about mind, it’s about body, the voice of the subconscious.

After doing this for a week, you will have a much clearer idea of whether your subconscious is supporting your MEGA MONEY goal or countermanding it. This learning will put the power of choice in your hands. It’s key to note that the intention of this practise is NOT to change your NO feelings, just become aware of them. This is a very important point.

So my friends, a lot of information, but really important. Please post up at least one sentence a day on this face book page. Think of it as your diary. By doing that you will keep yourself doing the right legwork to get maximum mileage and transformation.

Good Luck! Good Money!


The experience we have in our bodies affects the world around us. Two assumptions that science has made in the past, assumptions that they are now revisiting, point to this. They are:

1. That the world is full of space. No! Per scientist Gregg Braden, it is full of a living pulsating essence.  Scientists name this essence the quantum hologram; nature’s mind;  and the mind of God. Max Planck father of quantum theory7 said that it is a ‘conscious and intelligent mind – and is the matrix of all matter.’
2. We influence the world around us through the conduit of this pulsating essence using through the human heart – our feelings. Thoughts are important, but feelings are what makes it all happen.
So today remember that it is vital that you set up your life to create a series of feelings in your body that support your goals and dreams. Dance, watch a great movie, do good for others, do what ever it is that brings joy flooding into your system. And then know exactly what it is you would like to achieve. By doing these two things you’re deliberately using science to succeed.
