Happily, Charlene, the distance between having it all, and not, is usually only as great as you think... And the difference between, "Doesn't that look like my Ferrari, James?" and "Which Ferrari will you be driving today, Charlene?" is only as great as you think.
There are no accidents, Charlene.
If it's appeared on your life radar, this is why: to teach you that dreams come true; to reveal that you have the power to fix what's broken and heal what hurts; to catapult you beyond seeing with just your physical senses; and to lift the veils that have kept you from seeing that you're already the person you dreamed you'd become.
And believe me, that was one heck of a dream.
But my all-time favorite message (so far) is the one I first read when I discovered Mike Dooley's book, Notes from the Universe at the library. It went something like this:
A question from the Universe:
Just how much time do you spend...thinking really, really big? Good. That's exactly how much you're going to get.
Right around the same time that I read that message about thinking big, Shawn, the owner of Country French Antiques in Louisville, Kentucky published a blog post about Suzanne Somers' Palm Springs estate, which is for sale. She and her husband, Alan Hamel, have reduced the price on Les Baux De Palm Springs (the name of their property) to a mere $27.5 million. The property sits on 65+acres, has seven different suites and guest houses, 10 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, indoor and outdoor living and dining areas, 6 fireplaces and parking for 20 cars behind gates.
But it's the romantic décor, the light-filled rooms, and the French-flavored ambiance that really captured my fancy. I especially love the wine cellar, the kitchen, the white linens and duvets in the bedroom, the dressing room, the bathrooms, the caretaker's house, the ceilings, the floors, and the flowers. Yes, Universe, you're right! I could be thinking even bigger - much, much bigger! I'll have what Suzanne's having... You must check out the slideshow and website for yourself - it is a feast for the eyes, a 5-minute spa treatment, a dream-enlarging experience.
