Step 9: Goals and Dreams

Sometimes we are tired and unmotivated because we don’t know what to do.  By changing what and how you think, you can have increased energy and vitality.

Think back to the last vacation you took.  Even though you had to get up at 4:00 a.m. to catch that plane, because you were excited about the trip you had a mysterious, almost unlimited amount of energy.

Goals give you direction.  Direction creates enthusiasm (enthusiasm comes from the Greek for “God within”).  Enthusiasm leads to action.  Action leads to success.  Goals, direction, enthusiasm, action and success all equate to increased energy!

Setting and attaining goals is a simple process.  The first and often hardest step is deciding what you want.  Create a dream list of all the things you want in life:  CAREER, FINANCIAL, MENTAL, HEALTH, HOME, SOCIAL, LOVE, FAMILY, SPIRITUAL.  Write down whatever you want however unattainable it might seem.  (If you knew you could have whatever you earnestly desired, what would it be?)

As an example, one dream of mine that appears "impossible" is to go into space. Although I don’t know how this dream will manifest, I continually read the goal and visualize it happening.  The result?  People send me information on the future of space travel because they know about my goal--someday someone will send me just the right information! 

After you've made your lists in all areas of your life, pick out the most important one or two from each group.  Convert your dreams into a goals by writing them down in clear, vivid detail:  not "I want to feel better” but “I have excellent health because I eat light, wholesome foods, exercise 30 minutes 5 times per week, and meditate daily”.

Then, you must DAILY:

1. VISUALIZE   Every day, for at least 5 to 10 minutes see and feel the experience of already having your goal (enjoying it, being it, having it, doing it).  See it now.

2. AFFIRM   Make up a sentence that describes you already in possession of your goal:

I AM NOW...(financially independent)
I AM NOW ENJOYING (my vacation)
I NOW HAVE...(radiant health with unlimited energy)

3. DISPLACE  Throughout the day when negative thoughts (I can't do it, I'm not worth it) enter your mind, displace them with the appropriate affirmation--I NOW HAVE...

4. ACTION   Take an action step on each goal--make a phone call to find out more information about your goal, read books pertaining to your goal, read the goal itself out loud to yourself 3 or 4 times each day, cut out pictures of your goal and make a paste-up book or bulletin board.

5. GRATITUDE   At the end of your daily goal setting, give thanks for already having reached your goal before you have it in hand--THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, FOR THE ABUNDANCE THAT IS NOW MINE!  Constantly and consistently live in an attitude of gratitude. 

This process is sure to create an unstoppable enthusiasm and will develop the burning desire that insures the attainment of your goal.


Bonus Tip

Tape It

Let your subconscious help you to succeed.

Create an audio tape with soothing, uplifting music in the background.  The tape should be you talking to yourself, reading your goals stated in the present.  For example “I NOW have complete, vibrant, health, full of energy to accomplish all I desire”.

Be sure to include statements about who you must become to accomplish your goals.  “I am an action person.  I am a self starter”.

Using an auto reverse tape player, turn the volume down to almost the lowest setting and play this tape all night long.  Watch how quickly you achieve your goals!

Herbs and Nutrition for Health


Our herb this month is cayenne.  Years ago I was privileged to study with Dr. John Christopher, one of this century’s truly great herbalists.  Dr. Christopher always said if he could only use one herb it would be cayenne.

Is it safe?  I have personally used an eye formula recommended by Dr. Christopher  directly in my eyes many times!

Traditional uses for cayenne include stomach problems (used raw) including gas and cramping.  Simply take 1/4 teaspoon (more as your tolerance increases) and mix it in some water and gulp it down.  Too hot?  Get cayenne in capsules in the health food store.

Cayenne is one of the best friends to your circulatory system.  It drives blood throughout the body, lowers high blood pressure, and can help lower cholesterol levels.

Dr. Christopher always recommended pouring cayenne directly onto severe cuts and wounds to stop the flow of bleeding (it does burn!).

With skin problems including shingles and psoriasis, apply a cream made with cayenne (available at your local health food store).  The active ingredient in cayenne (capsaicin) depletes the area’s Substance P which carries pain and itching messages from the nerve endings in the skin to the central nervous system.  Use the cream judiciously:  about 20% of people experience burning sensations at first which, with continued application, usually subside within 72 hours.

Cayenne cream is also useful in joint problems like bursitis, arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Cayenne is one of the highest sources of vitamin C and also contains vitamin E and carotenoids.  Carotenoids are a special group of anti-oxidants that give fruits and vegetables their red and yellow and orange colors.  Carotenoids have been linked with decreased cancer risks.

As with all herbs, use cayenne with common sense.  Too much is too much!  Start using cayenne (internally or externally)  a little at a time and slowly increase your dose based on your tolerance.

Bonus Herbal Tip

Do you get cold easily?  Try 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne.  In your socks!!!!  It will potentially stain the socks but it will warm your whole body.

Upcoming Classes

Kundalini Yoga Classes

Make space in your busy schedule for relaxation and self growth time.  Known as the Mother of all yogas, Kundalini yoga incorporates stretching, breathing, meditation and relaxation.  This yoga is more aerobic and at times more vigorous than Hatha Yoga, providing you not only with stress reduction, relaxation, inner growth and expansion, but also a good workout.
