Abundance Design R&D

stained glass.jpg

I've been working with the concept of Freedom Experiments(TM) this year. In our first r&d call on this subject, I explored the differences between setting goals and approaching life through experimentation.

If you missed the first call, you can catch the recording here.

Last night, we had another conversation around Freedom Experiments. I have decided to call this new thread of r&d "Abundance Design(TM)". When you think about it, approaching your life as a series of experiments to be explored, to have fun with and to embrace all possibilities is a clear way of designing abundance. In the coming weeks, the r&d team will explore this further.

Listen to the recording to discover:

* the ways our conditioning around obligation and responsibility limit our abundance

* the major difference between responsibility and "response-ability"

* how "the universe is an unlimited field of freedom"

* the difference between living into your conditioning and living into your freedom

* the 4 steps you need to know to design your very own Freedom Experiment

* how utilizing willpower is a more of a sprint than a marathon

All of that and more here:

Today Is My World Made New


“Every morning is a fresh beginning.

Every day is the world made new.

Today is a new day. Today is my world made new.

I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day.

This moment...this as good as any moment in all eternity.

I shall make of this day...each moment of this day...a heaven on earth.

This is my day of opportunity.”

Dan Custer

What opportunity will you seize today?

Exploring Freedom Experiments

experiments - kid.jpg

What a great start to 2011!

A BIG thank you to everyone who joined me to explore my new concept called The Freedom Experiment.

On the call I got very personal about the recent loss of my father, the lull in my creativity and my new found resurgence of the Creative Tsunami!

I talk candidly about the inspiration behind The Freedom Experiment, sharing my own fears and hang ups about what's new for me this year and what I'm dedicating myself to in 2011.

Listen to the call to also learn:

* how Abundance Intelligence views Freedom

* what it means to create the space where experimentation can thrive

* how experiments are so very different than goal setting

* the audacious nature of designing experiments

Stay tuned for announcements on our next Freedom Experiments call!

New R&D Team - Feed Your Freedoms!

sunflower petals.jpg

Have you struggled with weight gain, dieting, exercising and overall health?

Do you avoid looking in a full length mirror, afraid of what you might see?

Do you judge yourself relentlessly about how much you weigh and how you look?

If so, all of these habits are tied to resistance.

Lately, I’ve been getting tons of requests for an Abundance Intelligence® program focused on health and wellness. I myself have struggled with weight and body image. In 2009, I lost 60 pounds through sound nutrition and exercise. I’ve seen how in my own life, the Illusions were related to my weight issues and resisting who I am.

The Feed Your Freedoms™ r&d team will be a very special environment of people connected by a shared passion – to explore how the Illusions are sources of emotional eating and resisting wellness.

This r&d team will meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at 7pm eastern, beginning January 18th.

If you meet the following qualifications, please email me directly to find out more:

• You struggle with weight and body image

• You never seem to be satisfied with how you look

• You are ready to face your Wellness Resistance and Conditioned Eating to make a lasting change in your life

• You are familiar with the Abundance Intelligence® system:

* You’ve read Coaching Into Greatness
* You’ve taken Abundance Intelligence® group coaching (now known as Abundance Catalyst) or some
other AI course

• You are excited about pioneering and exploring a new facet of Abundance Intelligence®

• You are willing to meet at least 3 hours a month by phone to discuss these concepts

If you meet the above qualifications and are seeking an evolving community of like-minded people to discern and learn with, email me by Friday, January 14th.

2011 - The Year of Freedom


What does it mean to be free?

I’ve been asking myself this question a lot in the last six months.

To me, freedom is a given.

We each have the capacity to be free, and yet, how many of us really feel free to do what we want? When I say that you are already free, do you roll your eyes and laugh?

Think about this: true freedom is the ability to embrace and live into the Authentic Truth of who you are, regardless of circumstance or environment.

Freedom is a way of life, just like Abundance Intelligence®. When you live your life according to this mantra, anything less than authenticity becomes more and more uncomfortable, in fact, it becomes downright impossible.

The biggest barrier to living into your freedom is RESISTANCE.

The ultimate scarcity is resisting who you are, therefore when people don’t know or trust who they are, they block their freedom. This results in chronic cycles of disappointment, frustration, over achieving, and struggle.

This year, I am dedicating my personal and professional life to living into my freedom. This focus is a natural component of my work with Abundance Intelligence.

As a result, over the coming months, you will have lots of cool opportunities to explore what freedom means for you. Stay tuned for several important announcements!

Are you doing what you can do today?


"I always wondered why somebody didn’t do something about that, then I realized I was somebody."

-Lily Tomlin

True abundance is about a return to responsibility.

What part of yourself do you want to return to and honor today?

Listen to the recording to discover:

* what Conditioning is

* how to determine the impact of Conditioning in your life

* what the ultimate identity theft is

* what a man in a gorilla suit has to do with Conditioned Eyes

Conditioned Eyes - Mark Your Calendars!

conditioned eyes.jpg

I never know when I’m on a call – in a coaching session or teaching a class – what will come out of my mouth. Students often ask me to repeat what I just said and I laugh and tell them I can’t.

That’s why I record just about everything I do. I never know when something memorable is going to happen. When the environment is right, the Creative Tsunami can strike in big, and subtle, ways.

I was teaching a course recently when the phrase “Conditioned Eyes” popped out of my mouth. I’ve been fascinated with it ever since.

What does it mean to see life with Conditioned Eyes?

It means seeing life through your Conditioned Truth – who you think you are, not who you really are.

Conditioning is the layer upon layer of should’s, have to’s, gotta’s, and need to’s that create the noise in our minds.

Ultimately, Conditioning is living someone else’s answers about your life. It’s like pulling into your garage at home and realizing you don’t remember driving the last 3 miles to get there. Auto pilot.

Every moment, every day we are not questioning our answers, we are asleep at the wheel. Let me give you an example. Have you ever been stopped at a light and looked at the car next to you, amazed at the dirty windows? How could somebody possibly see through that?

Well, living your life with Conditioned Eyes is like driving a car with dirty windows – after a while, you don’t even notice the windows are dirty. You don’t even notice what’s right in front of you because your vision is impaired and your mind accepts it as normal, routine.

What does it mean to see the world with Abundant Eyes? And which one is your chosen lens?

We’re going to explore that question, and many others, in this month’s special r&d call. This call will be my version of Lasik for your Conditioning!
