Mind Movies

Mind movies are an amazing personal development tool!  Do you have changes you want to make in life?  Are there old habits you want to break and new ones you want to form?  Mind movies are the thing for you! 

This is a simple tool that helps to reprogram the subconscious mind.  Creating your own Mind Movie is a power-packed way to help you overcome false or limiting beliefs, so that you can replace them with positive, faith-filled thoughts.  You can choose our own statements and pictures that lead you in the direction of taking full repsonsibility and accountability for your own actions.

New Year. New Goals. How About You?

It’s so much fun when things are anticipated and NEW.  With the NEW year approaching, its time for me to decide my own family history goals for 2010.

Here are some of the things I’d like to accomplish:

 1)  I’m excited to continue working on my personal history this coming year, and I will make sure some of my records are in my own handwriting.

 2)  I will continue to assemble, a bit at a time, some old photos and newspaper articles and make 8 ½ x 11” copies for each of our children.

 3)  I will continue our fairly new tradition of making a slideshow DVD of selected family pictures throughout the year for Christmas gifts for our children.  (Our DVD’s cover the period of time from October to October, otherwise I find myself under too much stress before Christmas.)

 4)  I’ve decided to do something really fun.  I’ve written a poem for each family member.  I’m determined to find those poems, gather them together, and put them with our family records.  In time, I will attempt to pen them all in Calligraphy.

 As a wife, mother, and business woman, I have learned to keep things simple.  I will do my best with these aspirations and accept my own best efforts as being enough.  I will continue to carry forth the goals of the www.familytreequest.com website, which are to glean wisdom from the past, live mindfully in the present, and prepare confidently for the future.  In addition, I hope to share some good times and make some great online memories with all of YOU.  Happy New Year!

Preparing Confidently for the Future

Preparing for the future has many facets.  We prepare physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.  As we prepare, we have more confidence and less fear.  We come to recognize that the weight of old grievances and regret can stifle our efforts to progress and be happy.  Distractions created from “worry” and “fear” can also cause us to turn our head away from our goals.  Part of every man or woman’s quest includes pursuing worthy goals in spite of obstacles.  Clear vision and commitment are needed in attaining the goal of preparing for the future.

Please post a comment and let us what helps you prepare confidently for the future in these troubled times?
