Get Unstuck & Develop Your 2020 Vision

Move From Stagnation to a Vision Driven Life

Each day when you wake up, do you think about the day in front of you? Do you create your day in your first waking moments, or do you leave everything to chance? We create each day through the breath we take. We will breathe another 365 days and then we will have created another year. You’ll either create a life by design or by default. It’ll either be a vision-driven design or a condition-driven design. Every day, we have the opportunity to create the life we desire.Colorado Rocky Mountains

I want to tell you this wonderful story, which is told by my friend, Jean Houston. I want you to listen to what the messages are…

A man was walking in a botanical garden and glanced down at a cactus plant. With that, he heard a little voice, “Mister, Mister, I’m a princess trapped in a frog’s body. All you have to do is kiss me and I will turn into my princess self, and I will give you any pleasure you desire.” The man bent down and put his hand out and the frog jumped on his hand. He brought  the frog up to his face, and then he put it in his pocket. He heard this muffled voice, “Mr., you don’t understand. I’m a princess trapped in this frog’s body. All you have to do is kiss me, and I’ll turn into my princess self and give you any pleasure you desire.” With that, he held the frog up close to his mouth and said, “Thankfully at my age, I would rather have a talking frog.”

What I love about this story is that most people think they should want what others have. That just because society thinks we should be living in a certain way, that we need to do this also? You get to decide for your dream. You get to decide what matters to you.

I know, as a child, I was truly a follower. I was afraid to do something different for fear that people would question what I was doing, question who I was, and look at me as if to say, “You’re really an odd bird.” Today, I can see that was keeping me small. I was being a follower. I was trying to do everything that everybody else did so that I fit in…but I realized that fitting in isn’t the name of the game. Making a decision for my life regarding what my passion is… is the name of the game.

Now, I would say that I’m not much of a follower. As you probably have figured out, that I’m not very good about following rules either and I really don’t want to. For me, it’s really tuning into what’s unique about myself and choosing what’s important to me. The key is honoring myself. It’s not about following everything else. So much of our society is based on wanting what other people want…keeping up with the Joneses.

Be willing to just make a decision and go with it. There’s no magical money machine. You must decide for your dreams and follow the proven systems of success in the way others have experienced success. It’s really important to try to get as clear as you can about what you want, not just because someone else says they want it for you, but what you truly want for your life.

In 1929, at the height of the Depression, someone had a vision to build the Empire State Building. At the height of the depression, they did it in 18 months, and it didn’t depend on the time as to when it started. It depended on the will for them to do it. Someone drove the project. Someone had the vision that there weren’t conditions that were going to stop them. The Depression wasn’t going to stop them because they could see it. If you can see it in your life, you can be it, do it, have it.

When you create a vision for the life you want to live, you want to be sure you are planting it in soil that is clean. Fresh soil, the best soil available because it is the soil for your life. If you plant your vision in soil with weeds, it is not going to survive. If we don’t kill the weeds, our vision is going to be toxic.


To be sure you are planting your vision in clean soil, ask yourself the following five questions:

  1. Does this vision bring me life?
  2. Does it align with my core values?
  3. Is there good in this for others?
  4. Will it cause me to grow?
  5. Do I need help from a higher power?

If the answer to all five questions is yes, then you are planting an amazing vision in soil that is fresh and clean. If any of the answers to the questions above is a no, then this is not your dream. If it does not align, go back to the drawing board. If it does align, you can stand in your power and integrity about moving forward with this dream. Go ahead and plant your vision in the soil of your life.

Think about a thermometer. It reads the temperature. The thermostat sets that temperature. Your vision is your thermostat. So suspend disbelief, put it on hold. If you rely on unseen forces then be willing to fail. There is power in that and there are lessons waiting for you so you can grow into the best version of yourself.

Take some time today to ask yourself, “What would I love to create? What do I love?” Write it down on paper. Now look back throughout your day to see if you are creating the day you desire and deserve. Being vision focused impresses into the mind of the infinite and clearly identifies what you would love. In other words, every action you take sends a powerful and clear signal telling the Universe that this is what I would love.

Create a Vision for the Life You Would Love

7 Steps to Living the Life You Would Love

Why do we want to create a vision for our life? Do you know that everything is energy? What we put our focus on is what we get in life. Working with a vision is called the dream building process. What would you love?

You have 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts a day and 95% of them are unconscious. You don’t even know that the brain is hacking into your vision. These negative thoughts are embedded in the life you are creating. You can change that through shifting your thoughts with a powerful vision.

Putting your vision into writing empowers it. It makes it real. Start with a fantabulous vision board. Mostly people are sight learners so the teacher coming out in me says you can create a powerful visual to start then work this vision board. Putting it behind your dresser until next Jan 1st will fuel your dream half-way. Creating and working your vision with the following 7 steps will fuel it so you can create the life you would love.

Flipping through magazines, etc. to dream and get excited is Step 1.

Step 2: Cut pictures out and placing them on a board within the following categories. (Divide board in 4 quadrants.)

  1. Health
  2. Relationships
  3. Vocation &/or Hobbies
  4. Time and Money

Step 3: Sit with your vision board for 10 minutes imagining yourself being and doing the things you placed on your board.

Step 4: Write one, two or even three pages about your board. Make this writing in sentence form. No need to worry about spelling or punctuation. We are working with images….your vision….not an essay that is being graded.

Step 5: Add to the beginning…’I am the woman/man who is…’

Step 6: Add to the end…’This or something better still’ because you don’t know what doors will be presented by the Universe as you get clearer and clearer about what you want and you tell this Universal Energy what you would love.

Step 7: Work this vision.

  1. Stand in front of the mirror and read it out loud.
  2. Get excited when you read it. The Universe hears the vibration of emotion rather than just words without emotion.
  3. Read this 2X a day for one month then 1X a day for the next year. This takes 5-10 minutes. Your life is worth this expended energy.

If you know how this vision that you created will come to pass, then the vision is not big enough. No kidding. The Universe will conspire with you to bring about amazing things in your life. Go for the gusto of what you would love. It’s about staying focused on your vision and not having your unconscious thoughts hack what you would love.

We all came here to share our gifts. What are your gifts and what will you do to serve others?

Many of my clients continue to get coaching to help them stay focused on their vision. They are doing amazing things for humanity and you will also. Contact me if I can support you to create your vision &/or to work your vision.

You Get to Choose

We are going to live our life. We only have one decision to make, however. Will we live this life on a condition based vibration or vision based vibration? The good news is we get to choose what our life will look like.

Many people view life as negative. They perceive there are bad things happening. You are correct. There are bad things that happen if that is your perception.

What we do get to choose is how we respond to the occurrences in our life. When we label something bad, we give it power over how we feel. No kidding. We can take back our power and get curious about life…our life. And how do we do this? We can get curious about what good there can possibly be in this thing we are labeling “bad.”

An example might be seen an illness we are facing such as diabetes. We can get curious about eating foods that resinates with our body like a salad and beginning an exercise program. This is honoring the earth suit that is carrying us on our Hero’s Journey.

You might know someone who changed their diet to resinate with their frequency and healed themselves. They began to have more energy. Twenty years ago, I was “labeled” as having an auto immune disease that might have taken me down a different path if I chose that paradigm. However, I chose my own paradigm and today I am climbing 6-8 miles in the mountains of Colorado. I got curious about what new way I could live that would be more exciting.

What would you love for your health? You can create that and live at that frequency. No Kidding!



Cutting the Cord

Forgiving so I could feel better about myself is not why I forgave my parents. Forgiving them was to release the energetic string that I had tied around them like an umbilical cord. It connected all three of us so deeply I was not seeing ME in the picture.

It was a dark and cloudy day at a cemetery east of Cleveland, Ohio. After spending many years in therapy trying to make sense of the various memories that were hijacking my life, I began to see that these memories owned me. I could not embody the life I saw as mine because I held them as an excuse for not being me. Confusion always popped up as my word of the day.

As confusion set-in, I would ask myself, “What did I say that offended you?” “What am I going to do differently so I experience ‘fitting in’ at work?” “Why do I always feel, ‘There’s something wrong with me.’”

And then I knew…there was something wrong with me. In spite of the many hours of talk therapy, journaling, crying, walking in nature and banging on drums, I still felt like I didn’t belong. It became all consuming to figure out what was wrong with me and what I needed to do “to fit in.”

So on that dark and cloudy day at All Soul’s Cemetery east of Cleveland, I sat by my parents grave. Yes they were buried next to each other even though they had been divorced for 20 years. Coming to one gravesite made it easy to do forgiveness.

Sitting by the headstone, I pondered the violence my young self experienced. My father had said to me on his deathbed, “Here you are the child I left crying in the crib so I could go to the bottle. Here you are taking care of me at this time of my life.”

I thought about the times I would wake in the middle of the night and my mother would be in bed with me…not my sister. I remembered the fear I felt knowing what would be next when my father cornered me in the bathroom. I thought about the time as a teen, I bolted out of bed having heard a huge ruckus and ran down two flights of stairs. Etched in my mind are the frightful faces of my younger siblings sitting at the breakfast table attempting to eat their cereal. There was my mother lying on the floor across the kitchen. My father had planted his fist in her face so hard that she and her cereal were separated. PTSD for many years to come was my reality whenever similar sounds occurred while sleeping and I would jump awake.

It wasn’t until I attended workshops at the Academy for Coaching Excellence that my journey began to make sense. I was a compassionate, caring and kind woman. I was giving away my power to the excuses I was making. The stories I was telling myself were more powerful. Once I accepted that I am not my stories, I began to see the endless possibilities for my life.

Experiencing little emotion behind the thoughts was my indication that healing had occurred. I had cleared at a cellular level and was ready to move on when the string binding the victim to the story was severed. I was ready to infiltrate my life with friends who loved me and experiences that shifted the rumination of all that had occurred in my formative years.

More than anything, I was ready to cut the umbilical cord and free my parents to rest in peace. Saying  without anger that my parents did the best they could with what they had at that time of their life was more powerful. Releasing them from the cable that had held them to me was freeing. I knew that I loved them for who they were…my life bearers.

Throughout my mother’s last days, black birds became a sign for me. They would sit in the trees in my backyard, appear when I was in nature and show up while I was driving to visit her. Wouldn’t you just know it? There they were at my parent’s gravesite to confirm that I was on the right path. The dark and cloudy day turned to a sunny day…really…the sun came out and I could feel the warmth.

Everything is energy. I was determined to use the energy of my caring, compassionate self to make a difference rather than continue using the energy of my victim stories. I was going to rock and roll with the difference I was here to make. No kidding!

5 Unexamined Assumptions: Can You Relate?

Do you have Unexamined Assumptions taking you out of the “game of life?”

What is the one gift that you came here to share and you know your life makes a difference?

Suppose, just suppose that you knew you were more powerful than your experience at this moment. Would it be alright with you to see this power expressed? Would it be alright with you to know that if you can see it for yourself, you can be it, do it, have it?

It has taken me a long time to be alright with my personal power. After all, I have this inner critic hijacking my power every moment of the day. Guess what?  So do you. We all do. It’s in our DNA to have our brain telling us what to do or not to do to keep us safe?

So what is in our DNA? The conversations that we have been listening to for the better part of our life. The conversations that we hear over and over. We hear them so often that we think they are true.

For example: “I don’t have what it takes to do this.” “I don’t have enough money.” “I shouldn’t bother because it has been done many times before.” ” No one’s going to care anyway.” “There isn’t enough time.”  If one or more of these phrases is part of your stream of thought, welcome to the human race. Every single human being has one or more of these phrases running their lives unless they have learned to shift their focus to what is more important to them. What are your Unexamined Assumptions to shift your focus from?

So the question to ask yourself is, “What do I choose to focus on?” This:  “No one is going to care.” or this  “I am going to start the business I’ve always dreamed of?”

Marianne Williamson once said,” Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world.”

came me to do in this lifetime.

Translate Stinking Thinking into Translatable Gratitude

Translate Stinking Thinking by shifting fear to gratitude for Mother Earth.

There is nothing wrong in life except the way we translate our thinking. We can use our thinking in an empowering or disempowering way. Empowered thinking is expansive with possibilities. Disempowered thinking is contractive, has few possibilities and is a lower frequency. So often, I think everything is ‘tanking’ and then BOOM…such amazing things come out of what appeared to be awful. Thinking more empowering thoughts is like buying an outcome you want.

Facts are just facts. I remember once having a conversation with the CEO of a company that teaches the principles of success. I was lamenting facts in my life and how I just couldn’t see a way out of them and couldn’t shift to what I wanted. To quote him he said, “Listen to what you are saying. Now I’d like to invite you to translate  everything you just said by writing the sentences on a piece of paper one sentence per line. Then go back to each sentence and indicate if it was of high frequency or low frequency.” By then I knew about frequency in relation to my life but this was new to relate frequency to my language.

The good student that I am, I did exactly as he told me to do. Next, he asked me to circle each sentence that was of high frequency. Out of my 20 sentences, I had 4 high frequency sentences. The rest were condition based with no opportunity for what I would love to happen. I was just whining and complaining thus sending a signal to the Universe that I wanted more constriction, anxiety and worry. Up until that exercise, I wasn’t even aware that I was mirroring constriction to the Universe. You see the Universe mirrors back to us exactly what we are putting out.

So I could see that I was spinning my wheels and didn’t even realize it. The Universe would support me in creating the dream that I saw and I was just learning how to utilize this support. The more I speak and think from a high frequency, the more I will receive a high frequency life in return. If I am experiencing happiness, it is because I am thinking happy. This translates into a true flight tracker for my life. I invite you to test it out.

I love living with the Invisible Laws of Success and improving my experience of life. How about you? If you would like to know more about how to bring success and happiness into your life so you Step Up and Step Out, just contact me. You’ll be glad you did.

Blueprint Your Life, Creating a Vision

“Only with awareness can I make use of the opportunities that are there for me.”
Mary Morrissey

Thoughts become things. That is a law of the Universe. All of us have a burning desire for something bigger and many times we create stories around this desire. They often sound like, “I’ll do it after the holidays,” or “I don’t have enough time,” or “I don’t have enough money.” What if time and money were not part of the equation on your journey to enhancing your vibration? Would you go for your dream?

We can climb mount everest one step at a time. Our burning desire will step us into action if we decide for our dream. Now is the time! Our dream is more than just possible. It is necessary.

When I stepped into my dream, it took courage. Traveling for 4 years was a shift in my wobbliness. I had to stay solid state and at the same time, I allowed my eyes to leak so my heart could open. I chose to install new paradigms and it changed the trajectory of my life. You can do that too.

What if you could revive your dream and identify the one thing you came here to do? It’s about No Regrets. Today I was interviewed on Dr. Gayle Carson’s radio show, “Living Regret Free” with 20,000 – 30,000 listeners. If you had told me 5 years ago that I would be on a radio show of that magnitude with such an incredible woman, I would have told you “It will never happen. No-one is going to care about what I have to say. That’s a stupid idea.”

You see, I call these conversations ‘Dream Crushers.’ I had a dream to make a difference and at the same time I had paradigms that were hijacking my dream. Don’t we just all have those conversations? Don’t we all just see a bigger story for our lives and then take ourselves out of the game by what we say to ourselves? Perhaps we share our dream with a naysayer that feeds our paradigm and then we listen and believe the paradigm more than ever. That is why I had to get support from someone who believed in me and saw my greatness. There is greatness in you.

Bring forth your passion. Can you see what it is for you? Are you ready to take the leap regardless of what your paradigm may be saying. You can do this. You have the wherewithal to Step Up and Step Out. Now is your time.

To your greatness,

Carolyn Rose Hart

It doesn’t seem possible that Step Up Step Out – Share Your Gifts and Be an Agent for Change launched just one year ago. So many exciting things have occurred since then. We all continue to grow and evolve as a human species by stepping up to make a difference for all life on this planet. Step Up Step Out has brought together numerous individuals for discussion and collaboration. What is yours to do?

Now is the time for all of us to experience the freedom of sharing our gifts and being agents for change. Lynne Twist in her book, The Soul of Money shows us how we can replace feelings of scarcity and guilt with experiences of sufficiency and freedom. The world needs us to use our gifts and make a difference.

What is my purpose in life? Why am I here? These words are being repeated all over the globe. Viktor Frankl once said, “Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.” We only know a small fraction of what is true for us individually and for each other. The possibilities are endless.

What if we were aligned with our greatness and just did what is ours to do rather than waiting until we think it is the perfect time. Now is the time to Step up and out and we already are. People are getting off the couch and becoming active in their communities cleaning parks, teaching children to read, taking elderly neighbors to the store, and creating non-profits that stop human trafficking. There are over 1 million non-profits benefitting the public sector in the United States. Take a breath…’We are showing up’ in huge numbers.

My passion lies with social justice for women and the rights of indigenous people around the world. Feminine energy is in all of us, males and females. For centuries, the masculine prevailed and cities were built from brain and braun. As the energy shifts to the feminine, we are beginning to see that cities can be built through the heart. We are dropping deeper into the core of who we really are as a species. The brain and the braun of our society are preserving the flora and fauna in our world as we realize extracting oil from the earth is not only not necessary, but there are other ways to create energy. We are exponentially mobilizing to stop the abuse against women and children and men see themselves for their greatness rather than their power. Now is the time. What is yours to do? Step Up and Step Out!

If you haven’t heard, Step Up Step Out – Share Your Gifts and Be an Agent for Change is now an award winning book through the Colorado Independent Publisher’s Association.

So in celebration, I am offering this ebook as a free digital download from The new ebook has colored pictures and a study guide for book groups. It is available for 5 days only as a free download.

Help me share this message, “We can step up and out without past abuse defining what we do. As the world transforms, our individual gifts are needed to make a difference in turning things around.”  Step Up Step Out is one woman’s journey to wholeness and a transition to sharing her gifts.

How to Be an Authentic Leader

By Christine Kloser

Leadership. It means different things to different people. The word often gets tossed around loosely in reference to people who are “out in front.” But, are they actually leading? From the heights of Corporate America and the leadership of nations, to the pioneers of social movements and the leaders of small business… at this critical time in history, everyone needs to take a look at what true, authentic leadership really is.

Let me share a little about my experience as a leader and the transformation I made last week in this area. It’ll help you learn more about what I’m referring to as Authentic Leadership, and hopefully offer some insight into your own next steps as a leader in your life.

I’ve always been a leader, at least since I was 16 when I was voted the co-captain of the Majorette squad in high school. I stepped into more leadership when I was 18 and began teaching aerobics at the local fitness center. Eventually my natural ability to lead brought me to being a yoga teacher, retreat facilitator, founder of a 500+ member women’s networking group, seminar leader, author, coach, speaker, and much more.

In the past, I had a belief that in order to lead I had to be “perfect.” That nobody could know the truth about me… especially if I was struggling. That I needed to show up and shine and make sure it all looked good on the outside. In other words, my old understanding of leadership meant that I couldn’t be human, couldn’t be flawed, and couldn’t be seen as anything less than perfect. For me, that kind of leadership couldn’t last… so it didn’t.

And, last week, I was blessed to have the experience of an upleveling in my own understanding of Authentic Leadership.

Here’s what was different. I allowed myself to be HUMAN. I let my clients see that while yes, I was their Spiritual Guide and Transformational Book Coach, that I (by no stretch of the imagination) am perfect. I shared how I, too, sometimes… get mad at my husband, have a short temper with my daughter, eat too much chocolate, make poor decisions, push myself too hard, drive too fast, slack off on my exercise routine, etc.

I felt so freed up and powerful in speaking my truth in this way. Yes, I am a Spiritual Guide and Leader… and I am human. I swear the heavens opened when I truly “got” that this is the next level of leadership needed in our world.

What helped me see this was what happened after I shared. My clients (many of them in tears) shared how they were impacted by what I said. And, they began to see how THEY could step into a bigger role as a leader while bringing ALL of themselves along… their greatness, Divinity, and gifts… as well as their humanity. They received “permission” to step up and lead no matter what… because they, too, are human. It was a transformational shift for everyone.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen one too many “leaders” who refuse to let their humanity show. Who insist on being “perfect” and believe their students won’t ever know as much as they do. I’ve seen one too many leaders who won’t allow for feedback or suggestions on how to improve their leadership ability, or hide their struggling marriage, bad habits or failures in hopes of maintaining their “position.”

Well, in my experience, this old paradigm leadership simply isn’t sustainable. Eventually the truth catches up.

So, I invite you to ask yourself how you can be a more authentic, and therefore POWERFUL leader in your life? Whether you are writing a book, running a business, or leading the Brownie Troop! Authentic Leadership will help you, and those you touch, co-create a better world for everyone.
