"The practice is getting back to our naturalness. Be relaxed enough to be in that state. So things flow perfectly, which they will. It's not outside yourself, it's inside yourself. It's not manifestation manifesting, which is outside. It's about you tapping into your greater self and the availability of what already is for you. So you get out of your conscious thinking and into the possibility of all that is."

 

"Whenever you wonder what your message is...we have to start way back to: Who you are, what do you stand for? What are your values? What do you want to accomplish and why? What's your big vision? And what is it that you want to do with the skills and talents and abilities and personality that you were given?"

 

"Your mission through it's through people or through your events or through whatever it is that you're doing. It's not about you."
