    And I got so carried away I forgot to post the link:

    (I forget to attach things to emails all the time too. Especially the ones that begin, “Please find attached…”.)

    Thank you so much for the advice! I’m excited to enact some of it!

    Hi Jessica,

    I was waiting until I had a computer of my own to start my lifestream, but I just can’t hold it off any longer! Please take a look at my first About Me page and let me know what you think :)

  • jessica mullen

    Louise your About Me is beautiful! It really makes me appreciate what you’ve got going on! I love “we spend our time at gigs and workshops” I totally want to do that too… And I love “My income is generated from my blog – a big beautiful delicious cycle of fun” – that’s PERFECT! Thanks for sharing, you’re really inspiring me today!

    Hi,

    I just found this course after browsing through Gala Darling’s “I Want To Be” series. I’d never heard of lifestreaming before, but it sounds right up my alley, and I’m determined to actually do the exercises, because normally I just read stuff and expect it to happen without me taking any action.

    My treat after completing the assignments is to read the next lesson. :) Love what I’ve read of your blog so far, and I just updated my About page per your recommendation. It’s a lot tougher than I thought it would be, and I don’t know that I really let myself explore, but it is a start!

    ~Jess

    Jess, I am so pleased to meet you. I just read some of your posts and your about page, and they were both so inspiring. My only suggestion for your about page is to say that your dream is not your dream at all – but what you DO. If you say that’s how it is, and practice how that feels, you’re going to find the inspiration (the HOW) of how to get there.

    Congratulations on knowing what you want. Congratulations on your hooping. Congratulations on being a beautiful conscious creator! Thank you for connecting with me! <3 <3 <3

  • Jessica Wagstrom

    I was thinking that as I was writing it, about making the dream a now statement. I have a big question about that: While I understand the concept of “lying” about what is present, it scares me quite a bit to make such a bold statement that is, technically, untrue. Why is that? Why is that such a scary thing, and do you have any suggestions for breaking through that fear?

    Also thank you for reading and commenting on my hooping post. :) That means a lot to me! Also the second, you live in Austin so there is no reason we shouldn’t get together and play with our toys at some point. (I’m in Arlington, but I visit Austin a few times a year.) :)

  • jessica mullen

    Jess, all that matters is telling a new story. It’s the only way you’ll start believing it. What you believe determines what you expect to happen, and what you expect to happen is what happens.

    What is has very little to do with what is becoming. What “is” is the result of an old vibration. What’s coming is the result of your current vibration. Keep telling the same story, keep getting the same results.

    You create yourself with each new thought. Each thought is genuinely true until you think a thought to negate it.

    If it feels uncomfortable to make the leap and say you’re doing something you’re totally not, take smaller steps. Stretch the truth in a way that feels good – like saying that you are training to become a yoga instructor, are putting the first payment on a bus, and you hang out with awesome people every day.

    That sounds pretty true, doesn’t it?

  • jessica mullen

    AND YES LET’S PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jessica Wagstrom

    I took your suggestions and revamped my about page (after ten days of lifestreaming I’m feeling way more confident about things), here’s what it looks like now: http://jessherself.wordpress.com/about/

  • jessica mullen

    AWESOME! Now it totally feels like “this is happening, I already have most of what I want, and the rest is on the way!”

    […] I am so grateful for the deeper understanding of reality that I’ve recently experienced. I am grateful that this discovery process goes deeper and deeper all the time. I don’t know whether or not I would have dug as deeply for meaning in my life if I hadn’t had such a rough two months. I experienced contrast after contrast, seeing more of what I didn’t want, and sinking into old thoughts and processes that clearly don’t work for me. In my search to re-discover the happiness and the flow, the Universe gave me several shoves in the right direction.

    I’m so happy to have found your page.. I can see that I will be able to actually begin reinventing myself and figuring out what will actually make me happy. I plan on continuing this until the end.
    Thank you so much.
    I’ve been struggling so much with my life and getting it in control, and resorting to things that actually just make me lose control. This is exactly what I need to become everything I want to be.

    […] The idea of living in the Now, I got trough this and this. There are probably a lot of self help books that promote it too (I should probably read those and find out some more about the subject) But to me living in the now means just enjoying the moment. Sometimes you can be so busy with all the things you need to do, want to do. That you forget to appreciate the small things, like said butterfly. When I feel sad or just stressed out, I can always say “I’m a girl living in the now and I’m doing this or that.” It makes me put things in perspective every time. Also by living now and appreciating things now, you tend to realize how happy you actually are.  (All credit goes to Jessica Mullen for me doing this and she does a better job at explaing it here).

    Love it so much Katherine! Thank you for inspiring me tonight :D Take the “hope” out of “I’m finding happiness and hope I inspire someone else on the way” and just say “I’m finding happiness and inspiring others on the way.” <3

    Jessica, your School of Life Design has thrown me for the best loop ever! I re-wrote my about page…but now I have to revamp the rest of the site :o). This changes everything, but in a great way. I thank you so much. I can’t wait for you to read it. And when you do, I haven’t even met Joe yet, but I’m really looking forward to it :o).
    Love, Libby

  • jessica mullen

    Libby,
    Your website is completely blowing my mind! I am so struck by your professionalism, perfectly combined with positivity and enthusiasm! Thank you so much for sharing with us, and I can’t wait to read more from you! I am so excited about where you’re going :D

    “Hola. I live in San Francisco and work hard, go on adventures, read widely, make things, and sleep like a rock every night. Some great things happening in my life now:

    – Designing and preparing for a future houseboat
    – Constantly realizing how vital it is to enjoy things while doing them (goes for eating, exercise, and working)
    – Learning how to do squats properly
    – Finally perfecting a Japanese eggplant recipe
    – Learning about lifestreaming
    – Creating extremely functional cosmetic products from scratch
    – Finally learning web design
    – Meditating, then eating gluten-free waffles with espresso for breakfast every morning before work

    My current and past personas include art school girl, health nut, Navy brat, born-again Christian, atheist, flight attendant, Vipassana student, cubicle drone, palm reader, pianist, nanny, and ballerina. This year I’m adding designer and blogger to that list.

    As a kid I wanted to be a witch, concert pianist, and president of the USA. What about you?”

    Jessica, I’m trying to include a link to your Life Design course (amazing, brilliant) but Gravatar doesn’t seem to offer HTML capability. I’ll figure that out when I’m doing my own hosting. But anyways, yes, many thanks for all of the above.

  • jessica mullen

    Wooo Kiriko! I love it! You are inspiring to rewrite mine tonight! I really like “Constantly realizing how vital it is to enjoy things while doing them” and the HOUSEBOAT!!
