Your Inner Voice is Talking…

Live Your Purpose

Many years ago following the release of the book and movie “The Secret”, I learned all about the Power of Attraction, I believed what it talked about, I understood the concept, but I really had not connected it to what I do with money relationships.  I was very wrong!  It is all about this.  But more than that, I am at a different trail marker on my life path.  I am now ready to embrace the Power of Attraction, but there is so much more to it than what The Secret shared.  I understand spirituality, Source, manifestation, and so much more at a deeper level than a number of years ago.

And the beauty of it all is that I have traveled with many teachers and students along this path who have taught me so much formally and informally.  One of those teachers has been in my life since 2008.  He really does not like notoriety, but he would recognize that it is he if he read this.  He is a spiritual intuitive who is also a medical intuitive.  I have learned so much form him, and several years ago he wrote a book called “The Practice” and began informal group sessions in various forms since then.  I have been a fairly active participant, and, when I am in Oberlin, a group following “The Practice” will begin there.  It is spirituality without a religious component.  Religion may play a part in many lives; but, in this situation, religion is there but it is not a part of “The Practice” groups.  “The Practice” is about spirituality.  

Combining my spirituality with my knowledge of manifestation and more, my life has become a wondrous flow, and I am so happy with it.  In recent months, my curiosity brought me back to “Abraham” and Esther and Jerry Hicks, the authors of many books channeled through Esther from Abraham.  It took a while for me to wrap my arms around the channeling part, but now “Abraham”/Hicks u-tube sessions are a major part of my life.  They are inspiring, they are spiritual without preaching spirituality.  Bringing Abraham and Esther into my personal mix has been quite powerful.

In the last 24 hours, the reality on all counts of my moving from the typical Northeastern Ohio suburb of Westlake to a very nontraditional college town named Oberlin, a longtime dream and intention, really hit hard:  emotionally, spiritually, socially, financially, and more.  Any major move, and this one comes after 12 year s in Westlake, is an emotional marker.  I am fine with it.  Sleep always helps, and after 5 hours of sleep, I awoke to my routine in the early morning hours.  That routine includes Abraham, and this morning was provided by Source inasmuch as there were 3 sessions I listened to, and they all applied to exactly where I am and where I am going.  So much so that I shared them on my Facebook pages.  They made a major impact as I continue moving forward.  

All I have learned before this move, and that includes decades of living, has prepared me for this move.  I am a spiritual, social entrepreneur who is involved with the community, with the political scene (after 16 years in government and politics)in a very distant way, and I have a great core family.  But this move is for me…to continue to grow Empower Excellence, my company, into The Empower Excellence Experience, a comprehensive, loosely woven approach to being well in all respects including wellness with the money relationship, wellness in spirituality, wellness with nutrition and local food, and aging wellness naturally.  All blend with my core concepts of personal sustainability.  It is the rebirth of Janice Marie, and my Inner Voice is alive and well and talking….


Time to Go Back Into the World, I Guess!

i live in my own little world...

The month of December has been a self-imposed retreat as I lost my voice for several weeks, and I took the time to clear my head physically and mentally and emotionally, but now it is time to ease back into the world.  I am not sure that I am ready, but in the words of Esther Hicks speaking on behalf of Abraham my vortex is full to the top, and it is now time to begin living again.  Even going back into the world, it is my own little world and most know me here.  But this re-entry is different.

Oberlin is on the horizon.  My current strategic plan is in place until I settle in with Oberlin, and then, there are at least three new components toEmpower Excellence as it becomes The Empower Excellence Experience:  two of them are Pampered Chef “healthy” and The Practice.  The third is still unwritten…

Each new component will be written into the strategic plan when appropriate.  And I know it will be a slow, deliberate process.

There is no more hurrying and becoming crazed for me…

I hope these are more than famous last words!

The Happiness Vibration…


Yes, vibrations do have colors.  And today’s vibration is golden.  Peaceful, meditative, and rain to nourish the Earth and my soul.  Sleep, beautiful sleep, without interruption for a full 8+ hours.  Awaking feeling calm, wonderful, happy.  There is nothing better.  Meditation with Esther Hicks and Abraham to start the juices flowing followed by a meditative state that was pure bliss–no interrupting thoughts, just peace and receptiveness.

And peace and receptiveness are the portals to happiness.  

Knowing that my day is super full taking me to Lake and Summit Counties before I return home, knowing that the rain could be a bummer, knowing that I will sleep well tonight after a day with three different client relationships to nurture, I am at peace as I begin.  I am open to what my clients need today.  And that makes me happy.  

My whole practice has a golden vibration, and it is my mission to keep it golden for all involved.  Be at peace, be receptive, and be on the path to happy today.

Somewhere Into the Vortex…


In recent weeks, I have been attracted during my meditation period both morning and evening to Esther and Jerry Hicks.  During all of my years of work with energy , I have not been attracted to their Abraham and the Law of Attraction partially because I felt I was already incorporating the principles into my life and practice.  And I still believe I was “there” on the surface.  

During the last year especially I have continued changing on my journey, and I know that will continue forever.  I am very blessed.  But somehow, and I do not know when and where this happened, I became very curious about Esther and Jerry and Abraham.  And I am very blessed that I did.

As a big believer in vibratory power, and a big believer in The Powers of the Universe work, which details how The Powers of the Universe–the development of the Universe over billions of years as shared by Brian Swimme and others, I am already in the vortex, in my definition the flowing of the Universe over time where I can be a part of the flow and not just an observer.  In my words, it is when I am “in the flow”.  I am more “in the flow” than not “in the flow” these days, and I am delighted by that.  I know when I am in the vortex!  

So Esther and Jerry have become my vehicles of meditation in the morning, and it is a wondrous journey, which I am now beginning to share on a daily basis.  Esther’s “rampages” are delightful, and, maybe, that is because I totally understand and relate to their beliefs.  It is a practice of joy and happiness and energy and everlasting life!

So, if you know about the Vortex and Esther and Jerry Hicks and appreciate their rampages and other offerings, please appreciate their gifts, and periodically, you may be viewing my thoughts on vibrations and energy and the Vortex.
