Manifesting Home RunsWritten by Debbie O'Meara
Continued from page 1
By way, for those of you who don’t speak baseball, bear with me just a moment…
Did Hafner dream about getting hit by a pitch? Not likely. He’s a designated hitter—his purpose on team is to step in and hit ball, not have ball hit him! But if you think about it, is his purpose really to hit ball? Or is it to win game? If you put it in that perspective, then he did exactly what he was supposed to do. He won game for his team. It may not have been his preferred means, but he accomplished his end. A win is a win in final tally.
When we’re working on manifesting a goal, what are we focusing on? Are we thinking about means, or end? It’s one thing to think, “I need money,” knowing you need it to buy a new car, and another to focus on “I need a new car.” Is it really money we want to manifest, or is it car? Maybe we win car in a lottery. Maybe we inherit it from a long-lost uncle. But we have new car, and it wasn’t money we were after anyway.
It’s not up to us to determine “how”; universe is smarter than we are, and will do that for us. We need to look clearly for “what,” and trust that universe, Divine, can handle “how.”

Overcoming Burn OutWritten by Valerie Garner

4.Talk to someone else, outside of situation, could be a friend, family, life coach, counseling, etc. They may be able to offer insights and suggestions you can’t see. Sometimes it’s tough to see trees through forest. 5.After a period of doing some of these suggestions, see if burnout is on way out. If not, it may be a time to really evaluate your life’s paths, career,etc. Perhaps it’s a bad match to who you are as a person and it would be best to make a change, but it’s better to do that from a position of strength, and not of desperation to make a change just for change’s sake.
Sometimes, burn out can be a reality check that our life is out of balance in some way and adjustments are good and very healthy and necessary to our lives. I believe there are very real seasons in each person’s lives’ as well and perhaps it can be a changing of one season to another new one. It is important however, to step back and see what our bodies are telling us when we experience burn out. Who knows, perhaps it may even be one of those “hidden blessings” that we look back on years later and think, “you know, that was beginning of a real, positive change in my life.”
