Hope is Hopeless
That’s a strange statement coming from a healer, don’t you think? I thought so too when my dear friend, Thom, said it to me nearly 20 years ago.
Hope is hopeless.
Manifestation practices teach us that in order to manifest we must be very clear and succinct in the way we mindfully “ask” for our dreams to be fulfilled. Think carefully about what you want, define it, make a statement, write it down, and leave wiggle room for the universe, because we can’t know the direction the dominoes will fall. Let go of control over it, giving it to God, and wait it out. Watch for signs indicating the universe is on the case, and lean into the process taking right action.
Remember the old story of the man treading water at sea who prayed for God to come save him? He was filled with faith, and knew it would be so. God would come save him. There was no doubt in his mind. The man was so convinced God would save him, he waved off three boats that pulled up beside him trying to give him a lift, saying, “oh, no thank you, I am waiting for God to come save me.” The man died treading water.
God sent those boats.
The drowning man had a picture in his mind… a hope if you will, that God would appear out of the sky and rescue him, delivering him safely to the shore. The rescue boats were signs from God; faith fulfilled. The man’s responsibility was to take right action and get on board the rescue boat. He did not do that, but kept hoping his perception of God’s helping hand would manifest in the way he chose it to. He didn’t follow the domino trail.
We must be in motion in order to manifest our own life-course while interpreting the signs from the universe indicating the changes of direction, or patterns that will allow us access to the realization of our dreams. Action is the final stage of manifestation. Sitting and hoping for it to be so will not necessarily reap us the reward we dream of.
Hope is hopeless. Don’t give your power away. Take action now.
Many thanks, Thom, for this lesson that has led me through long passages into an exciting and fulfilling life.
One of my favorite sayings is, "In order for anything to stay the same, everything has to change." When my clients hear me say that, they will often look off into the distance as they grasp the depth and truth of those words. We are in constant motion, energetically, spiritually, physically, and mentally. The person you were last [...]
Did you know that reading Tarot Cards is a direct path to inner wisdom known as your intuition? Many people tell me that they have a really good sense of intuition. And most people really do...but...they have been conditioned to use only their five senses; sight; sound; smell; taste; and touch. Intuition is a sixth sense [...]
Think of your environment, and all that is in it. It’s all energy. You yourself are result of energetic ingredients, and radiate all that is within you. Think of crystals radiating their energy around them the same way you do. If you hold a crystal, or in many cases, just be near one, the energetic vibration of that [...]

I had been practicing hands-on healing for more than a year before I began to accept that crystals were energetic tools. Many of my clients spoke of the wondrous healing nature [...]
Love Is Enoughremember your essenceBy Dawn HallAfter nearly twenty years of listening to folks reveal their innermost emotional truths, I am still moved by the innocent and vulnerable need many people have to hear that they are divine, beautiful, whole, and they are everything they need. "YOU are enough!" There is a child-like joy that emerges when I speak those words [...]

It is presumed that these cards were brought to Western Europe from areas around the Middle East. From there, the use of tarot cards flourished throughout Western [...]
When Jean explained to me how to do automatic writing, I froze. My sheltered background and strict religious influence told me that what Jean was describing must certainly be something I should not be playing around with. I said as much. Jean just laughed, canted her head, got that far-away-look readers sometimes get when they channel, and said, “Don’t be silly. [...]
