The Journey Part 3 – Designed to Transform

The Journey is a 4 part series,

fueled by the Creation of a “Dream” Project!

Although it’s my real life story of the application of the law of attraction in action, anyone can follow the 4-D, or multi-Dimensional approach to create his or her heart’s desire.  We are all wired for success!  EVERYONE creates his or her moment-to-moment life experience.  The question is, How do you create each moment . . . by design or default?” It’s your choice!  It’s never about what you’re doing and always about how you’re being!

Join the fun . . . ride the wave, catch the inspiration (part 1 of the Journey) . . . notice what transpires when it almost doesn’t happen (part 2).

We’re moving into the dynamic part of the journey and Design, the 3rd element of creation, has made an appearance. Call upon imagination to provide the project blueprint. Design what you want to see, feel, and experience in relation to the end result.  (You really want to read to the end of today’s post – there’s a big surprise.)

For years, I used self-discovery cards with coaching clients, in classes, workshops and with corporate colleagues to great success.  At a September mastermind meeting, I committed to design my own deck of inspirational cards and a write a companion guidebook, all within 3 months. Did I mention it was the last three months of the year? (Smile.)

Since I worked in the energy industry for over 3 decades (keep your lights and power on) and also knew a thing or two about healing energy and the unified field, (well actually, experience the unified field regularly) — it made perfect sense to title the cards – Just BE . . . Boundless Energy™The Art of Being.”

The 33 cards were designed for self-discovery and transformation. Each card features a photograph from my personal travels around the world paired with a specific word to help you discover a rich moment of inspiration.  I also imbued each card with a distinctive energy. (To some this may sound kind of woo woo, but it’s not.) As you hold a card in your hand, you will feel the energy that is being conveyed. You’ll quickly realize the energy begins to expand your awareness, vision and overall well-being. (The cards were tested and the feedback re-affirmed the design.) What an easy way to introduce clients, (coaches, trainers and service professionals) to subtle energy and the art of being.  I couldn’t wait to receive the final cards.

It looked like the cards would easily print by mid-December and the entire project (including guidebook) would meet the original schedule. This was music to my ears since

a close friend was hosting a large mid-December get-together and promised the guests that I would showcase the Just Be . . . Boundless Energy™ Cards at her event.

In early December, the printer told me they were having production issues (nothing major). A week later  . . . there was still a problem. One card kept holding up the production run.  My friend’s event was two days away and I needed a sample deck for the guests.   The printer sent the proof deck overnight and warned me that the “problem card” was in the deck.  He reassured me, “Don’t worry we fixed the card and everything is running smoothly.”

I couldn’t wait for the mail.  As I flipped through the deck, I immediately spotted the card that resembled the original but was different.  I laughed and cried as I looked at the Transform card – it literarily transformed itself in production.  In the Transform proof image the once beautiful orange and red leaves on the ground and on the lower branches of the tree, transformed themselves into green leaves.  What a powerful design validation – exactly what was needed.  The cards are truly transformational!

Be sure to join me for the 4th and final part of the journey.  Who knows what might happen next . . .
