QSC Tips for Greater Success: Managing Interference

In the past month I’ve become aware of some additional interference that many people are experiencing in different ways. Some of the symptoms are: increased irritability; headaches; more joint and muscle pain – feeling like you’ve been hit by the proverbial “Mack truck;” a feeling of being squeezed or pressure building, increased anxiety and fears; wanting to hideout or withdraw; extreme fatigue; restlessness; anger or rage; and feeling out of control.

No one likes to experience energy and emotions that feel unpleasant or that we judge as negative. Here are some things to help you shift the energy and feel better immediately:

  • Quit judging yourself for having “negativity” in your life. Feelings are simply a signal to tell you whether are aligned with your true Self or not.  If you feel unhappy, you are out of alignment.  Take a moment to re-connect.
  • Get as centered as possible and ask if what you are feeling is even your emotions! (Hint: It probably isn’t.)
  • Take a few deep, calming breaths.
  • Use the Quantum Soul Clearing Preparation to Work statement and/or audio track from any of the audio programs you may already own. Make sure you are centered and connected with your Divine Core Center first.
  • Please note that there have been some new additions to the Prep to Work statements that may not be in your audio tracks. Please make sure you add them either out loud or silently to yourself.
  • If you are in the membership program, there is a new Prep to Work audio track that will be available this month as part of your member benefits!

The Joys and Angsts of Motherhood

Happy Mother's DayI’ve been a mother for 34 years this year.  I can honestly say that it has been the toughest job I’ve ever had – and the most rewarding.  Motherhood, for the most part, is a 24/7 complicated job – made more difficult by the feelings that most mothers experience of not doing it right or “perfectly.”

After beating up on myself for so many years for not being a perfect mother, I’ve come to realize that there is no such things as the “Perfect Mother.”  In fact, there is no written rule book, no special instructions when you become a mother.  Yes, there are magazine articles, blog posts, and even some books that can give you parenting tips.  However, because each child and each mother is uniquely different, there is no one recipe that fits all relationships.

What I experienced as a mother was the  sheer terror of wondering if I was completely ruining my children’s lives every time I made a parenting decision.  I had a deep fear that I just wasn’t up to the tasks that come with motherhood.  That was compounded by the fact that I also struggled with a disabling disease that made me wonder at times if I’d live to see them grown.  I worried that I wasn’t able to give them everything they needed – the right schools, the right clothes, the right home in the right neighborhood, blah, blah, blah, blah…. You get the picture.

I also experienced the sheer joy of knowing and loving the amazing, unique Beings that my children are.  I watched in awe as they developed their unique gifts and talents.  I took great pride and delight in watching my daughters take their first steps, learn to read, learn to ride a bike, experience their first day of school, excel at music, at school, at skiing and snowboarding, fall in love, fall out of love, graduate from school, get that first job, fall back in love again, get married, and then have children of their own – along with every milestone in between.

I’ve watched in wonder and pride as they grew into incredible young women in their own rights.  It has been one of the most incredible gifts and experiences I’ve ever had.

Motherhood isn’t easy.  Often, you yearn for the difficult times to be over (whether that’s a moment, a day or years) – and then you yearn to have all that time back, once they’ve grown and left your home.

Your roles change throughout the years: sole care-giver, cheer-leader, teacher, cook, confidant, antagonist, chauffer, seamstress, disciplinarian, banker, jailer, doctor, nurse, guardian, protector, and hundreds of other titles and roles.  Great mothers are always willing to do the hard work.  While they would like to be their children’s best friend, they also know that sometimes, they have to be the heavy in order to provide appropriate boundaries and keep their children safe.

Motherhood will bring up your deepest fears and feelings of personal inadequacy.  I have yet to meet a mother who hasn’t wondered if somehow she’s a failure.  The role of motherhood is definitely not for the faint of heart.  But it is for the courageous and for those seeking great adventure.

If you find yourself feeling inadequate, fearful, out of your comfort zone – all those deep dark feelings that only motherhood can generate – I would like to suggest you take a few minutes for yourself.  Get centered and take some deep breaths.  Go within and give yourself a big hug of compassion and understanding.  If you need to, do a Quantum Soul Clearing Process to release the negative feelings and judgments that you’re experiencing.  Make sure to practice radical self-forgiveness and self-compassion.  Know that you are not alone.  Know that the Divine loves you no matter what.

I’m am so grateful for my own mother and the amazing women I’ve called grandmother.  I am fortunate to have had such beautiful, intelligent, compassionate, loving women teach me how to become a good human being, and a good mother.  Without their guidance and role modeling, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I want to take the opportunity to honor all the Mothers of the world.  I want to honor you for all you do.  I know the challenges you face and want you to know I value your contribution to the world.  The children you are raising will be the next generation of scientists, doctors, healers, teachers, innovators, leaders, farmers, etc.  You are helping to mold the future of our world.  My hat is off to you!  Keep up the great work.

Financial Alchemy Is Here!

 

AUTHOR MORGANA RAE is no ordinary life coach. Fun, sexy, sassy and often quirky, she calls herself the “Charmed Life Coach” because she teaches people how to lead truly “charmed” lives, where 

prosperity seems to come to them as if by magic. Because of this, she’s become internationally recognized as the world’s top Relationship with Money Coach. This distinction has led her to be featured on ABC-TV, PBS, NPR, FOX News Radio, United Press International and even The Wall Street Journal online. She’s share the bill on programs alongside Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, John Gray, John Assaraf and T Harv Eker, to name a few. Named one of 2012’s “Top Women in E-commerce” by WE Magazine, Morgana has guided thousands of entrepreneurs, artists, healers and humanitarians to thrive in their purpose, attract more than they chase, and make things happen with ease, flow and synchronicity.

And now, Morgana has shared her unique coaching system in a book called Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation. The book is a year-long workbook that takes you through the same process she has used with her coaching clients for the past 10 years. What makes her system different from all others on the subject is that you learn how to see “money” as a person. Morgana teaches that when we are stuck in money problems, it is because we see “money” as a “Money Monster”. And because we see money as a monster, we unconsciously push it away and experience scarcity and financial struggle, even though we may say we need or want money. But the self-coaching system Morgana shares in her book Financial Alchemy shows you how to turn your “Money Monster” into what she calls your “Money Honey”—where money becomes a loving, supportive partner who brings abundance, manifestation and sheer magic into your life. Here are a few words from some of her clients who have used the Financial Alchemy system: 

“I’m seeing success beyond my wildest dreams… I’m constantly blown away at the business and new clients that I’m attracting… The thought goes through my head many times a day now “I do live a charmed life.” 

~ Lavon Lacey, owner of Quantum Entertainment, Inc.,Atlanta,Georgia

“I created a new relationship with money and just a few days later I received almost $4,000. Some of this money I had given up on collecting. It came from multiple sources all on the same day…Your financial alchemy program is so very powerful yet simple and fun.”

 

~ Jason Hignite, Liberty League International

 “It seems that ever since I started working with you, I’ve doubled (or more than doubled) my income every 6 months…by November of last year I made over $100,000…” 

~ R.K., Entertainer and Multilevel Marketer,Los Angeles,CA

How Was the December 21, 2012 Shift for You?

I have a question for you:  Did the Shift that occurred on December 21, 2012 change your life the way you thought it would?  Have things been different for you in a good way?  Or have things appeared to become more challenging?  Or does it appear that nothing at all is any different?  Have you wondered if you’ve been “left behind?”

 

Whether you know it or not, things have changed in a big way!

While we have moved into the new paradigm, for many people, there appears to be a lag time in experiencing the peace and empowerment that we all expected.

I have personally experienced some interesting challenges myself!  I even found myself judging myself for not “having it all together!”  What I finally realized is that there was still some inner “stuff” that needs to be released.  And it’s coming up quickly in order to be healed.

 

What I am seeing, energetically, is a massive swell of energy – much like a tsunami.  And like a tsunami, as the waters rush in, everything in its path is being shifted, and moved, dislodging tenuous foundations that aren’t rooted in the frequency of this paradigm and  pushing to the surface everything that no longer serves us.  In some ways, we are being forced to look at everything that is not a match to our true, aligned selves.

Because the multi-dimensional part of us has already made this shift, and has done so easily and fully (because for the most part it is out of body), as this tsunami moves in and brings everything  to the surface,  it feels even worse that it did prior to the shift!  What has made things feel even more painful is our expectations that after the shift everything would gently and easily fall into place and we’d be living our lives happily ever after!

However, what I have found is that since it is all up and “in our faces,” we can now simply and easily remove it – much like skimming off pond-scum to reveal the cool, fresh, clean, deep water below.

In actuality, the pain and challenges we have experienced are a gift.  (I know they don’t feel like gifts!!)  They are showing very clearly the next unconscious beliefs that need to be released and healed in order for us to create heaven on earth.  

 

There is still much to be done.  However, if you are like so many people with whom I have spoken over the last few weeks, you probably feel like just crawling into bed and giving up.  Or perhaps you may feel too exhausted to even think about doing any more work.  And you wonder and fear how much longer this will continue and how you will be able to pull out of this painful energy.  For many, it feels like an overwhelming task to even get out of bed some days!  How on earth can you possibly even think about adding one more thing and work through one more emotion on your own?

Or perhaps you feel like you’ve moved through the chaos and confusion, and are feeling a better, and you are now ready to truly create the life you’ve always desired!  

 

No matter where you are on the spectrum of transformation, I have decided to do something to powerfully uplift and transform the energy!  I’m starting  an eight-week group program to help you  – to help each of us – move through this energy, and create the joyous, centered, empowered life you want to create for yourself and your family.  I’ll lead and facilitate the work as we meet each week.  Together we will heal and transform.  You no longer have to do it alone!

This Quantum Soul Clearing 8-week transformational course begins Tuesday, January 29th, at 3:00 p.m. PT/ 4:00 p.m. MT/  5:00 p.m. CT/ 6:00 p.m. ET, and will run until March 19th.  Each call will run approximately 90-120 minutes.  And, of course, each call will be recorded for replay and download immediately if for some reason you cannot make the call in person.

The cost of this 8-week group coaching program is $399.  However, if you act quickly, between now and January 23rd, and use the coupon code of ICHOOSEME you’ll receive $100 off this powerful eight-week program.

Imagine spending 90 minutes every week for eight full weeks as we meet as a group to weed-out the most pressing, painful emotions and beliefs so that we can increase our personal energy, create greater personal empowerment, and deep fulfillment in our lives!  Imagine spending time every week finding your joy, your purpose and passion for life again – or perhaps for the first time ever!  How valuable would that be?

Because I want to be able to make this a powerful experience for everyone in the group, I am limiting the number that can participate, to only 30 people.  That way everyone will have a chance to work with me personally for laser-focused coaching that profoundly and powerfully impacts the whole group!  Seats are extremely limited, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a big shift that will impact the rest of 2013 and beyond.

And don’t forget to add the early-bird coupon code ICHOOSEME to save $100!

Here’s to a transformed 2013 and powerful new beginning.

Many Blessings,

Unconditional Receiving

‘Tis the season of giving but when it comes to gifting, are we giving from our hearts without expectation of receiving, or is there something in obligation about having to buy something for everybody at this time? The more commercialized our society has become around the holiday season, the more we’re really manipulated into giving, giving, giving, without a thought. Let’s take a brief departure from the unconditional giving we all take part in and focus on its polar opposite: unconditional receiving.  We spend most of our lives being better givers than receivers but the time has come to embrace the willingness to receive.

But what does it mean to receive unconditionally? What are the boundaries in unconditional receiving? Many of us tend not to be open to this idea; while we find no issue with unconditional giving, the idea of receiving tends to make us uncomfortable. Imagine that your car has run out of gas and a friend offers to give you a ride home. You’ll probably start to fret in your mind about how much of an inconvenience this is to your friend, especially because your house is in the opposite direction from his. Did you, however, ever stop to think that your friend is giving you a gift with no strings attached…unconditionally giving? It’s in these moments that you need to stop, accept the gift for what it is, and be willing to receive it. The reality of the situation is that in order for you to get home, you simply must be willing to receive from the ride. Many of us don’t even realize the sort of price tag our minds attach to the receipt of a gift. We unconsciously take responsibility for someone else’s feelings or potential expectations, failing to realize that these assumptions may not even be real in that person’s mind; they may only be in your own mind. And even if that person actually has an expectation, you have to break free of that burden.  In doing so, you lead them to be responsible for whatever expectations they may have, leaving you to only be responsible for your own stuff. This awareness and willingness to receive, without concern of expectation on their part or your feelings of obligation to somehow reciprocate, will alleviate a great deal of undue stress.

Release the unnecessary stress from your life, and allow yourself to receive…without the burden of conditions. Simply stop and accept the gift without imposing your own perceptions of what might be expected back. Keep in mind that there’s something to be said about the law of attraction, and thus, the ability to be a good receiver is crucial to your ability to manifest in the world.

What’s Next?

When you’re done clearing and cleaning, you may find yourself asking the question: “What comes next?” This may lead you into crisis mode as you search for answers and start to question more: where are we really going with any of this? What’s the point of the entire game?

A figurative response to these questions is that you get to pass go and collect $200. But what does that really look like? Some of us think we understand and know where we’re going but do we really know? In my mind, the purpose is for the body and the soul is to fuse as one complete immortal unit, and in that process, learn how to be our own God or Goddesses so to speak. We’re here to create new worlds, paradigms, and universes…to be our own creators. In essence, our bodies are designed to be immortal. You may, however, ask, “What do you mean?” We come equipped with stem cells, which in my belief or in my understanding, are just there waiting to be directed where to go. The amazing thing is that every organism on the planet has a set of proteins that are produced in response to stress period. So the whole idea is if we change the stressor, we change the genetics; if we change the thought, we change the genetic expression and who’s to say we can’t change whether our body is capable of regeneration.

To some, there’s no question about the fact that we regenerate. If you get a cut, it heals. If you get burnt, it heals. Our bodies already have the innate knowledge of how to heal. The higher the frequencies of who we are in that sole expression, the more we can accept and express it. The more we embody or allow it to embody itself within our physical bodies, the easier it is to regenerate and to keep those genes happy and healthy with the cells reproducing the way they need to. Thus, it creates this paradigm, this awareness, this feeling or being of health, vitality and youthfulness.

It’s amazing how the mind itself actually can get in the way of what we instinctively know and feel. Our feelings really are the language of spirit, the language of source. Our mind is so powerful, and we’ve trained it away from our feelings in so many cases. The truth is that our feelings are really the power of creation. It’s the interface between thought and form or energy and matter. It’s the feeling; if you can bring the feeling into the body, then you’ve already manifested something.

So what is next? To start, we each get to connect with our conscious awareness, understanding and ability to interact as a multidimensional being. While we can be immortal in our physical bodies, we can choose to be aware of many different avenues or dimensions of expressions simultaneously. It seems that more people are really opening up to that reality and that paradigm. The veils between the worlds are getting thinner and thinner with greater or easier access and less interference between these multi-dimensions. Metaphorically speaking, the elevators always go to the infinite stories of that building; we just didn’t know that we had the pass key for all those floors. Once you become consciously aware of the “Oh, I’d like to go there” and see what’s happening feeling, you start to notice how what’s happening over here simultaneously affecting what’s going on over there.

As this new transformation becomes real, a new honoring will also take place. There will be a new level of honoring that we’ll each have for ourselves where we’ll free ourselves to be, explore, experience, and create. We’ll be able to do so in a space where others are also allowing themselves to honor themselves and thus, resulting in easily honoring others as well. The concept of competition is dissolving away as we come into a world where everybody recognizes and embraces that they have their own uniqueness. We’ll also all realize that it’s ok to be different because we’re all playing in that same sand box of honoring ourselves and honoring others.

The Choices We Make

Our choices determine a great deal for us; both the conscious choices and the unconscious ones can have a powerful impact on our lives. We all know that we have the ability to make choices (both good and bad) but we need to be aware that each choice actually moves us into a different dimension. There’s a dimensional scale, and each one of us is actually living in diverse dimensions that collide and intersect. Not one of us, however, lives in a set dimension. Therefore, as each choice is made, it moves us on this vibrational scale from one dimensional reality to another to another to another and so forth.

Each choice we make, whether we’re making it from a conscious or unconscious standpoint, affects our ability for health, wealth, and relationships. We need to make an effort to “muscle test” every conscious decision we make. We all make unconscious, split second decisions about what we’re eating, how we walk, and many other things but the more conscious we are, the more we can bring our feelings and our awareness into the present moment. The result will allow us to be aware of as many decisions as possible and making those decisions consciously and weightily, asking important questions such as:  is this in my best interest? Is this in alignment with my feelings? Is this in alignment with my purpose and my passion and who I want to become? We should make our decisions by becoming aware and fully conscious of the choices we’re making from moment to moment that either helps or hinders us.  If you make conscious choices and take responsibility for them, the kingdom is available. When you’re choosing from that conscious place, you’re choosing a kingdom of God and to create that heaven on earth with your conscious choices.

Everything is determined by our choices. We have to change our unconscious programming and take notice of the change that the universe is bringing upon us and what it is we want to create in this change. If we’re making our choices based on fears, we’re not making the choices in accordance with our highest being (because fear doesn’t exist there). One way to banish fear is to step out of judgment. Now, many of us tend to be able to step out of judgment when it comes to others but it’s not so easy when it comes to ourselves. If you have two chocolate bars, a bag of chips, and two bottles of wine one day, that’s ok. You’re not supposed to judge yourself. Just beware: it’s a choice. You can’t allow your fear to consume you and affect your physiological response. Don’t permit the “Oh, my gosh! I’ve had the chocolate and I’m going to get fat and my blood sugar’s going up and you know all of that” fear to take residence in your mind. Give your mind a complete system rewrite by deleting fear and self-judgment. Welcome a new awareness and knowingness in your body. It’s all about where you choose to put your energy and what your true power really is when it comes to creating the reality.

Change

So much of the creativity and the expression that we have to bring forth may be resisted along the way. The energies that are building seem to be achieving some sort of critical threshold where resistance still lies. The cosmic energies, however, are building to a point where resistance is futile. It’s time to think gracefully into that next phase of expression and creativity that we’ve come here to burst forward. Imagine that the planet is supporting this process, like someone is holding your hand through it all. Let the shadow pieces come out, and allow them to return to you as you come into who you are. Be open to the opportunity to be who you are and take this journey of self knowledge and self actualization.

When on this journey, it’s vital to acknowledge where we’re at, even acknowledging that we have negative thoughts and feelings at times. The key is to stay with those negative thoughts and consciously choose a different thought and paradigm in the midst of it. Allow yourself to feel without fear or judgment. It’s easy to say, “Oh, geez! Here I am on my back. How am I going to handle this?” But try seeing it as an observation rather than a judgment, looking at things from a more rational perspective. That vantage point will permit you to say, “It is what it is. This is what I’m feeling so what do I want to create?” and get out of that place of blame, shame, and guilt. Try to determine what the gift is in that feeling and what you want to create from it. Choosing consciously what you want is where change begins.

With all the planetary support that we receive, one of the most practical ways of stepping in to making this change clear is to step back and be honest with yourself about what your heart is longing for. Look at all the triggers that are showing up in your life, all the buttons that are being pushed, to determine exactly what that is. Imagine a spider web where your heart’s desire is sitting at the middle of the web with all the strands radiating outward. At times, something comes along and tweaks that strand, serving as a trigger because there’s a piece in that strand that’s going directly into your heart. Somewhere on the strand there’s a wound that you haven’t nurtured fully, gained its wisdom, and incorporated it into the fullness of who you are. As you look at each strand, you get closer and closer to truly knowing what it is that your hearts long for.  As you get the courage to step onto each of those strands, you can look directly at the wound that’s been triggered and fully own every aspect of your reaction. You can ask yourself, “Why am I reacting here?”  The clarity and the power of cosmic alignment is if we have the courage to ask this very question. The universe, in turn, will reply “Oh! You’ve finally asked that question?” and if we do that, we’re going to get the answers placed right in front of us: the acceptance piece (where you get the clarity of what that wound is and don’t run away from it).

Acceptance

The idea of acceptance can be challenging to us all at times. True acceptance dictates that we’re able to receive the present moment and the feelings (including discomfort) that come with doing so. Compare your moments of acceptance to how you feel when you’re in a place of non-acceptance or resistance to what’s going on. Think about how those two places differ and consider how you can make the shift from resistance to acceptance.

All too often we become consumed by changing our circumstances when we should simply make an effort to become conscious of being present and not get caught up in trying to make everything different. We talk about manifesting, and we’d all like to manifest abundance, health, and a great new world.  At some point, however, we have to stop and accept where we are, being able to be comfortable and grateful for that place and in that energy. We need to feel and accept that energy, being able to burst forward from that place of acceptance with “I’m ok where I am”. Are you able to accept in this way?

As a society, it seems as if we’re bred to accept resistance in our everyday lives. Every commercial you see on TV is about a new wonderful way to not accept who you are (i.e. makeup and hair dye). Even the act of taking a painkiller to get rid of a headache is a sign of resistance; that headache represents of a non-acceptance of something at some level, whether you know something’s going on emotionally and mentally. There’s so much non -acceptance that it appears that we’re constantly pushing against ourselves. Somewhere in there, though, it feels like we’re pretty close to being ready as a society to open the gate and stop pushing.

Humanity has suffered from multiple personality syndromes for many, many thousands of years. We have the flesh which is carnal and sinful, the mind where the ego resides, and then we have a spirit which is just kind of here waiting to live out its full potential. We’ve been taught for thousands of years to embrace this split personality but now, it seems enough of us have begun to realize that we are this energy, this life, this creative force and that we are not fractured. It’s an experience, an illusion of being fractured that we’ve been creating for ourselves but in actuality, our intellect and bodies exist because we are eternal, spiritual, energy creative beings. We are fusing the three (flesh, ego, and spirit) back together and in essence, doing what a good shrink would do, pulling all the parts back together and fulfilling our potential.

Consider this scenario: what if I was the creator, creating this experience of life as me, playing as me and the perspective I play? Think about the moments that you really struggle the most with accepting, and ask yourself what if I’m creator. Your focus will completely change because you’ll no longer be stuck on the infinitesimal details, the “everything that’s wrong that I’d love to fix” minutiae. It all comes back to considering things from a much bigger and broader perspective.

Acceptance is like the WD40 of life, and in your moments of acceptance, there’s no resistance once you decide that you don’t need to do this. Even when things aren’t quite going as planned or as you hoped, allow yourself a moment of surrender and say out loud, “I’m ok!” Feel the flow of energy move through your body, through each cell. Allow yourself to be in a different space than you were in just two minutes before, live in that ok-ness and place of acceptance, and start your day anew.

Looking at Fear from a Larger Perspective

Our own perspective may limit us in our paths to a limitless reality. One way to rise above this issue is to look at the fear from a larger perspective. Think about the big places in your life that were obstacles. Instead of letting them overwhelm you, transform them into simple challenges that you can deal with more easily. This stands true when we’re involved in drama, when there’s no money in the bank, our marriages are falling apart, we’re fighting with our co-workers, or whatever it happens to be. We can easily get sucked into believing that third dimensional perspective is all there is; you can, however, just take a step back and zoom the camera out. For example, if being in the thick of the drama equals one foot, take your camera (or your perspective) out to a 1,000 feet and look at things from this larger place. This may challenge your imagination but you can learn how to go there.

Once you’ve expanded your perspective to a 1,000 feet, challenge yourself to take it to 10,000 feet and then 50,000 feet.  God or the universe (whatever you choose to refer to that over lighting intelligence that rules this place of which we are all a part of and we are connected to) is not limited to that third dimensional, “stuck in your face” stuff that we’re faced with. And ultimately, there’s always a bigger perspective; it allows us to see that thing that’s challenging us at that very moment is exactly the exercise that we get to evolve as a soul, to expand our conscious awareness, and to move into a place where we can actually start to see ourselves as part of the oneness.

Picture yourself looking at a leaf, and then imagine yourself moving into space, looking back at Earth. What was once so predominant and consumed your vision when you were looking at the leaf (or the troubled child that you don’t know how to deal with), when you’re looking at the whole planet, is much easier to sit back, take a breath, and let it go. You can simply say to yourself “I don’t have all the answers right now. I don’t have the full perspective, and I know there’s more to this. Whatever happens, happens for a reason, and that reason is always 100% of the time to serve my highest good because I am part of the creation.” When you’re sitting here on the planet in your little office or in your house, it’s really easy to feel that you’re alone. But when you zoom yourself out to look at the whole planet, you know there are six, seven billion of us on that planet. It gives you a whole different perspective of where things are. Just step out of the drama, and once you do, it’s much easier to ask yourself those questions that can bring you back into that space of what’s really important to you (i.e. what are you values? what are you endeavoring to create in this world?) and find that peace within yourself. When we find that peace within, we can begin to create it in the world. There will not be peace in this world until there’s peace in every heart, and it begins with each one of us.
