Ima Sumac Watkins Offering a Meditation and Intuition Tele-class

Ima Sumac Watkins Offering a Meditation and Intuition Tele-class

Having experienced Ima’s insights, talents, and counseling one-on-one, I’m looking forward to participating in this course. If you missed my interview with Ima Sumac Watkins on The Writestream, click below to listen and learn more about this fabulous woman and her life-changing services.

As noted in the interview, lately I’ve been studying the works of Florence Scovel Shinn. I’d heard of her years ago through my attendance at Unity Church in Delray Beach, where Reverend Nancy Norman often referenced her in sermons. Last year, I found her books on audio on You Tube and started listening repeatedly. Recently, I ordered her complete works in paperback and have been actively reading and taking notes every day.

Due to Shinn’s conversational writing style and ability to explain these concepts in a down-to-earth, humorous way, her books and affirmations resonate with me unlike any previously. There have been many worthy teachers (in the form of real people and books) along the way, so I’m not diminishing anyone else. I’ve learned and continue to gain lessons from all of them. It’s just that at this time, Florence Scovel Shinn seems to speak to me like no other. I highly recommend reading and studying her complete works.

And, if you, like me, also wish to talk with a contemporary practitioner, give Ima a call to register for her tele-class. Learn more about Ima Sumac Watkins at www.About.Me/iwatkins.



Sunday Inspiration: Living the 4T Prosperity Program

4TProsperityYears ago, I took the 4T Prosperity Program twice at Unity Church of Delray Beach – in 2006 and 2007. One of my dear friends who lived in South Florida at the time took the course with me the first time around and even though she has since lived in North Carolina for nearly seven years, we continue to hold a weekly (and when time permits, bi-weekly) prosperity prayer session by phone. On the other days, both of us do the prayers on our own in addition to other individually preferred forms of meditation and reflection.

Whenever I’m in the car, I continue to listen to the CDs that came with the class, alternating lessons in an ongoing effort to fully absorb them into consciousness and apply them to my daily life. I’m by no means perfect at it and I’ll admit it demands a tremendous amount of concentration, discipline and commitment. But if the way I’ve been feeling is any indication, my work is beginning to pay off. One of my close friends remarked that I looked “positively radiant” the other night more than once. While I did dress up and apply extra care to my make-up and wardrobe choices I fully believe that the radiance she was referring to came from within.

It’s not easy to release old, negative programming; ingest new, positive programming and continue to see things with a spiritual eye. One of the many lessons of the 4T class is to “see your circumstances right” — not accepting them as they are but holding them in mind as they CAN be. Visualizing, feeling and giving thanks in advance for all of the things you want to be, do and have. I mentioned last week on Love, Liberty and Lip Gloss that one of the tools that has really assisted me in this effort (not being a visually-oriented person) is my secret board on Pinterest. In the era of new media, Vision Boards and Treasure Maps are so much more efficient because you can add to them constantly – without the mess of cutting up magazines, gluing images and finding places to hide them.

On my Treasure Mapping Board, under each photo or link, I type in a corresponding affirmation. And when I do my prayer work, I always have it open to remind me of the kind of person I want to be (healthy, vibrant, accomplished, loving, joyful, etc) and the things I want to have (good relationships, a new car, a thriving business, etc). When I find good articles on spirituality, health, holistic healing and anything else that appeals to me, I add them to the board.

GodsLoveThere are also plenty of photos of places I’ve been and would like to return to (e.g. Saint Augustine) and places I want to visit (e.g. Maui).

My secret Pinterest Board is almost 9 months old and already some of the things on it have manifested in one form or another. For example, the new i-phone I posted and affirmed that I was completely enjoying? Received “unexpectedly” as a gift from my book client in November of 2013 — a few months after I’d posted the photo and affirmation. Of course, other things may take longer to manifest but that’s exactly the point.

Spiritual growth and development hasn’t been an “overnight success” but rather a long and wondrous journey with plenty of “setbacks” and “obstacles.” I’ve learned it’s not a straight line to a higher consciousness and deeper relationship with God but an ongoing effort that is well worth every second of time you can devote to it. Other things have also unfolded amazingly but in the interest of my privacy I am not disclosing them here. I’ll be taking a class next month that will hopefully assist me in reaching the next level. I’m really looking forward to that!

Anyway, if you’ve never heard of Stretton Smith’s 4T Prosperity Program, I highly recommend it. Not sure if you can purchase the CDs and workbook to use on your own or if they must be used as part of a course but visit their website for more information.

Have a blessed week!

Midweek Meditation: Right or Happy?


Author Alan Cohen.

Author Alan Cohen.

Alan Cohen has been one of my very favorite inspirational authors and speakers since I discovered his work back in the 90s. Filled with practical advice and real-world examples, his books also take a humorous approach to the task of becoming a more fulfilled, prosperous, spiritual and satisfied human being. I hope to interest him in being a guest someday on either Just Believe with Lisa Tarves or Writestream Tuesday.

This morning I was psyched to discover that Alan also hosts a radio program on HAYHOUSE Radio, every Thursday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Pacific Time:

Join author, lecturer, and teacher Alan Cohen for his weekly radio show, Get Real. Each week Alan gives you insight and practical tools that will help you to live a more authentic life. Using his background in the fields of personal growth, holistic health, human relations, and achievement of work/life balance, Alan promises to enlighten and inspire you. Call in and join the show for a weekly dose of inspiration!


Last week the topic was right or happy — as in “Would you rather be right or would you rather be happy?” Alan has some great advice for both his callers and listeners. You can check out the archive by clicking here.
