We cannot expect anyone to love us more than we are willing to love ourselves. We cannot expect anyone to respect us more than we are willing to respect ourselves. We cannot expect anyone to have more confidence in us than we have in ourselves!


Today, repeat, “I love, respect, and believe in Me.”

Guilt is a useless sentiment unless we use it to not do something we might regret. After the fact, it can’t bring any goodness to anyone—not ourselves, and not the people or circumstances we feel guilty about. Instead, we can choose to manipulate that guilt energy into useful service and atonement. From this moment forward,


“I am influencing lives in a profound and beautiful way!”

We don’t have to look very far for the reasons we feel imbalanced, uneasy, and not in alignment with our desires. The answers are found here—in our current state of mind and being and in what we are experiencing at this moment. We need to ask ourselves, “Am I imagining what I want or what I don’t want? Am I envisioning where I want to go or where I don’t want to go?” Our ‘now’ moment is all we need to change every moment thereafter.


“I am balanced, at peace, and in

alignment with my goals.”

Looking Out of a Skyscaper

We don’t have to run away from negative emotions; we can heal from them. We don’t have to sit with negative thoughts; we can manipulate out of them. We don’t have to wait for life to happen to us; we can make it happen for us! When it comes to our feelings, whether we decide to heal, manipulate, or let them go, we are “Always able to take control!”

To have a positive impact on others, we would need to maintain a positive state of being. Instead of allowing negative thoughts and emotions to persist, we can use powerful affirmations  to manipulate out of whatever keeps us imbalanced and restless. This makes the influence we have on everyone as positive as it can be.

Enjoying the Nature

Building walls around our hearts will work well to keep the hurt out, but that also keeps the love from coming in.

It helps to remember that being afraid and closed off makes us weak, while love and vulnerability create great strength. So loving more, not less, will keep us protected. 

“Love flowing in; Love flowing out.”

Dramatic Dew Drops

An intense feeling we are experiencing may not be caused by our present circumstances. We can get to the root of our emotions and thoughts by asking ourselves, “Is this feeling stemming from this current situation, or is it coming from some time ago?” Doing this exercise will help us move forward with clarity.

Agonizing or complaining about where we are in our lives will keep us stuck exactly where we don’t want to be in our lives! Acceptance of and appreciation for where we are now and

for how far we have already come—now that will prompt

forward movement!  Aspire to go further;

have the willingness to do what it takes.

Each morning, repeat:  “I’m stepping

into my life on purpose today, 

willing to be the best

I can be!”

Peace does have a price, and it’s called “Surrender.” When we are existing in a state of turmoil and everything we do is still not enough, we need to put our troubles “up”. Whether it is a Higher Power we send them to or our own Higher Knowing, we never have to work hard at bringing Love and Grace into a situation.


“Surrendering to All Things Good.”








Hip Hop Dancer

If we want to show and tell the world how powerful we really are, we need to approach life with our most positive and powerful attitude. Then, we have to walk that internal talk, or

no one will listen.

beliefs and passions.”

Arrogance is a state of mind, while confidence is a state of being. Arrogance is a learned trait, but confidence is an earned trait. One creates boundaries and blocks, while the other helps us push through them. Let’s be confident knowing that no amount of arrogance will ever take us where we want to go. Let’s remain open and willing to be


“Gifted by each other’s Grace.”

We don’t have to regret our past in order to learn from it. We don't have to categorize the road we are on as right or wrong or good or bad. Instead, we can just declare that the direction we are heading in will take us exactly where we need and want to go. 

“All the roads I choose lead to 

success and happiness.”

Be amazed by nature because the more beauty we find in our surroundings, the more beauty we see in our lives.


“Seeing the beauty; feeling the joy!”







Meditation by the Sea

Science says that we are always more clear-headed and energetically powerful when we are connected to nature.

So, today, find a garden to sit in, a tree to stand under, an ocean to wade in; even a grass patch will do. Then, while bare-footed, connect with the ground and repeat,

“Earth, energize me!”

My Mini Book of Mighty Mantras ©2019


Life doesn’t just happen; we walk down the paths our minds (thoughts) and hearts (emotions) bring into existence. Our feelings will create our best future or prevent us from realizing it. So, it’s important to remain mentally and emotionally clear about what we want. 


“Walking into the future I have been preparing for.”

The most powerful insult any one of us usually has to handle in a day is from our own mind, not from another's mouth!

Man Doing Pushup

Each of us possesses the mental and emotional tools needed to successfully handle and produce everything we need and want. Sometimes, though, we need to be reminded of that. In order to succeed at any endeavor, we would have to take ourselves out of survival mode and into thrival mode.

Positive Manipulation® is a process we can use to convert any perceived negative into a positive.

It is how we can reach our highest physical, mental, and emotional potential.

It is the way we say "No!" to our ego and "Yes!" to our Soul.

How do we start this process?

By making the decision to be the best we can be.

How do we keep it going?

The same exact way.

"Staying present in the present."


Fishing in Nature

Let Love pour from your heart like a stream. 

Let it have a direction all its own. 

Let it find its way to where it needs to go. 

Trust that what it cannot go through, it will go around. 

Just keep love flowing; let it abound.


When you are ready, pray for help with its course.

Ask for strength and brawn, then ready yourself for more,

Because this effort will reap an even greater reward! 

With Divine power, love swells into a river that meanders, 

Able to break its way through all the hate and all the anger.


Know that there is nothing more ideal than a combined stream,

Since there is nothing Divine Love cannot heal or redeem.

Without you, though, to funnel through,

This Love cannot become what it needs to.

The truth is when you will the stream, you take the lead.

It becomes YOU by which this river needs to feed.

Bucket Hot Tub

I had to learn the hard way that I cannot 

help someone who isn't asking for it or

isn't willing to help themselves. And that is 

no matter how much I think they may need it.

"It's like filling up buckets with holes in them," 

my coach once told me, "and leaky

buckets," he said, "never get full!"


That was over two decades ago, and ever 

since then, I ask for soulful guidance before offering my help or my time to anyone.

When my answer is no, I pray for them instead.


This is not a selfish thing; it is common sense.

The truth is when we pour our love and energy onto someone who will not

accept it, we forcefully drain them,

and needlessly drain ourselves.

Donna Martini

Couple of Kangaroos

Instead of protecting one another, most people go into

self-protection mode when they argue with a loved one.

They don't pull together to divide and conquer the issue; 

they pull apart and divide and conquer each other.

Next time you are fighting 

with your loved one, take yourself out of the situation

for a second. Imagine he/she

is having this argument with someone else. Would you quickly come to their defense, or would you quickly defend

their opponent?

It doesn't matter how different our viewpoints

and opinions are.

If we make a heartfelt

commitment to honor 

and respect each other's differences, we can still

live peacefully and harmoniously,

side by side.










Compromise is not about losing.

It's about symbiotic outcomes and understanding that who you are negotiating with has just as much right to be happy with an

outcome as you do.





Reflection Through Broken Glass
It can be said that every time we speak, we validate who we are, or we lie about who we are.
And depending on how discerning our listener is,
we do both.

Meditating in Mountains

The Law of Distraction 

We will not realize what we cannot visualize;

we will not receive what we cannot perceive;

we will not obtain a dream we cannot mentally sustain. 


To get what we want and need, we have to concentrate

on THAT, and not on what we don't want.


Then we have to feel what it is like to already have it,

be living it, and or doing it. We keep this up until it becomes our reality. Our mantra...

“I see it; I feel it; I’m living it!”

Beautiful Sunset

When we listen with only our head,

what we hear forms our opinion.

When just our heart is engaged,

what is said conjures our emotion.

If only our gut were allowed to tune in,

that would produce our reaction. But

when we purposefully and lovingly

bring all three of these human

gifts together to hear, we create

our soulful understanding.

"The Earth is flat...?"

Imagine looking into a sky full of round stars, moons, and planets every night of your life and still believing the one you were on was linear...


Some of us will argue against what is true and real because, at that moment, we cannot understand anything beyond our own belief system.

Such a shame, too, because what is astonishing and profound about our existence is so far beyond our comprehension anyway, we might as well give the universe the benefit of our doubt.


We might as well believe in miracles, in our spiritual prowess, and in everything we  cannot see, because even what we can see,

still cannot be fully explained.

Purple Stars
In 1944, Max Planck, known as the father of quantum theory, called this network of energy we all share “The Matrix.” Others call it "The Field" or “The Mind of Nature,” but I refer to it as Our System or God’s System. Using the word system implies that something came into existence for our use and benefit, freedom of will, and most especially, potential. 
 It would seem, fellow journeyer, that this universe and its vast complexities are here for us to work with, not just for us to dwell in.
