Advice from Clair

Focusing on appreciation of yourself is the quickest way to appreciating other things. Whenever you're at a loss for how to appreciate your life or surroundings, think about what appreciate about yourself. When you focus on the good things about yourself, the so-called negative aspects disappear. When you focus on your positive aspects, you begin to see those positive aspects reflected in your reality. Appreciate your flexibility and see the world around you bend. Appreciate your eyes and see the world burst into color. Appreciate your ability to love and see others suddenly able to love harder than ever.

Telling my future

Today I make my own singularity. Today is the best day of my life.

Interview with myself

How are you going to allow the singularity into your life today?
I'm focusing my energy into a pinpoint of clarity. I'm deciding exactly what I want. I want: creative inspiration, endless energy, knowing of the next logical step, guidance from Clair, abundance, fun and love.

I am working myself up into a frenzy of feeling good. I am falling deeply in love with myself. I am the coolest girl I've ever known. My intense love for myself is reflected all around me. I know the more I love myself, the more you love yourself. I know that we are all one. I know that this love I feel is for me and for everyone. I know that the more I allow myself to love myself, the more you are able to allow yourself to love yourself. I am here to tell you that it is not wrong to love yourself. It is not selfish. It is not something to hide or keep secret. I am the most perfect person in the world. And so are you. This moment is the most perfect moment that could ever exist. And at the core this moment is nothing but love.

Advice from Clair

SEE?! When you let go and go with the flow, amazing things happen! When you don't feel inspired, know that incredible things are building up! Any time you have a problem, it just means an incredible solution! Any time it takes a really long time to do something that shouldn't take that long (like buying a car), it just means the universe is concocting something super special for you!

Telling my future

Today I fall harder in love with life than ever before.

Interview with myself

How can you not feel guilty for accepting such an incredible gift? Do you even deserve it?
GUILT IS THE DUMBEST EMOTION YOU CAN EVER FEEL because it only makes you feel bad! It doesn't help anything or anyone, least of all yourself! And there is no right or wrong in the universe, only GOOD! Guilt means you care about what other people think!

And of course I deserve it! I practice feelings of abundance every day! ABUNDANCE IS MY BIRTHRIGHT, AND IT IS YOURS TOO!

Today's affirmations

  • I am FLOWING!
  • The world is my toy box!

done!
I'm so grateful I am done with these goals! I have vibrationally met them! I'm so grateful to have new goals!

goals
I'm so grateful I know what I know. I know I'm a vibrational being. I know nothing really matters. I know that all of life is good, no matter what humans judge it to be. I know that all expansion is good. I know that there is only a flow of well being and that anything that doesn't feel good is just negative thought blocking the flow of well being. I know that negative thoughts are the only thing that hold anyone back from achieving anything. I know that the more I practice positive thoughts, the more joyful my life becomes and the more I become one with the stream of well being. I know that I can choose to jump in the flow at any time. I know that it is a choice. I know that part of what is so amazing about physical reality is that we have the choice to have negative thought if we want it. I know that I am a conscious creator and that I create my reality with my thoughts. I know that there is no separate thinker - only my thoughts. My thoughts are all that make me. Even my memories are just thoughts.

I'm so grateful that I know the meaning of life. I'm so grateful that I asked the questions and found the answers. I'm so grateful that when people ask for advice, all it takes to find the answer is to think and feel, think and feel. Eventually the answer will be there. The answers are in the air. Every problem has an equal solution. The bigger the problem, the bigger the solution. Everything always works out. I'm so grateful that I can help people with advice. I'm so grateful that I know that the answer to problems is to let them go. I'm so grateful that the universe works things out if you can let them go. I'm so grateful that I have an emotional guidance system. I'm so grateful I listen to my emotions and what feels best. I'm so grateful for DUBSTEP.

Wouldn't it be nice to get my haircut? Wouldn't it be nice to get our groceries? Wouldn't it be nice to walk to Auditorium Shores and play AJ? Wouldn't it be nice to come up with 7 new ideas for the forum? Wouldn't it be nice to write another article or two this weekend?

Wouldn't it be nice to watch Avatar and that other movie with S tonight? Wouldn't it be nice to make tacos & muffs for ourselves? Wouldn't it be nice to take Pwny for a walk on her leash? Wouldn't it be nice to take Pwn and Lint for a walk at the same time, on the beach? Wouldn't it be nice to work on the Joystorm site? Wouldn't it be nice to feel that same crazy inspiration to work again? Wouldn't it be nice to go with the flow and catch up with the expansion? Wouldn't it be nice to let go and let the universe guide me towards my next action? Wouldn't it be nice to direct my thoughts today? Wouldn't it be nice to be in a really great mood and positively influence everyone around me to smile and laugh and have fun? Wouldn't it be nice to have limitless energy? Wouldn't it be nice to have the best day of my life?

  6. I also fixed my RSS feed which got a little effed from the plugin debacle, if you subscribe to my articles with rss and got a bunch of gathering momentum posts in the feed, sorry about that! Should be all fixed now :] You can subscribe to the gathering momentum/lifestream posts here.

Advice from Clair

If you don't feel the flow of inspiration today, just go with the flow and you'll already be in it. Let source guide you towards your higher self.

Telling my future

Today is SUMMER and BBQs and FUN!

Interview with myself

Why should people join The School of Life Design Forum?
It's a place for me to teach (and learn) web design combined with positive psychology.

I have a masters in Design and a BFA in Graphic Design. My thesis is called "lifestreaming as a life design methodology". I've taught web design courses at University of Illinois and University of Texas. I definitely know what I'm doing in terms of teaching design!

The forum is a place to ask questions and get support. It feels like a big risk to strike off on your own and start a site, hoping to make money from it. But if you combine a good mentor with a good community to support you, and do the work to direct your thoughts yourself, you have no choice but mad success! Then you get to be self employed, only do the work you want to do, and follow your passions in life! All while sharing with other people to help them on their own journeys to enlightenment and love.

I like this question, I'll get more into detail later!

my to do lists

Get things done by taking them off your to-do…

my to do lists
If you're an obsessive to-do list maker like I am, I have a RAD tip to share with you! Whenever I take something I haven't done yet off my to-do list, I often end up completing the task the very next day! Here's why it happens.

You build up desire

Keeping a to-do list of items you really want to accomplish reminds you of your desire and keeps it burning. The universe won't bring you many things you feel wishy-washy about. Items that get transferred to a fresh list each day (i.e., the things you never seem to get around to) really add to the fire!

Then you let go!

When you're able to forget about something you had a strong desire for, the universe serves it up immediately. This is because you are no longer vibrating a feeling of "undone-ness". When you look at your to-do list and think about all the things you have to do, the universe keeps feeding you the same feeling. But when an item is removed, you can forget about it, stop vibrating "that task isn't done" and the universe complies by arranging the circumstances you need to do it!

All you have to do is jump | gathering…

There is no point to doing ANYTHING when I feel bad! WHAT A REVELATION! I'm so grateful for all the amazing vibrational progress I've been making the past few weeks!

Advice from Clair

Your vibration is now permanently altered. The changes you have been working to make have stuck. Your dominant proclivity is positivity and nothing but success will flow from that. Life really is this simple and easy. You are mastering new levels each and every moment. Remember the things you have learned:

  • Never do ANYTHING when your vibration is low
  • Physical symptoms such as sickness are indicators of a vibration of lack
  • Remembering what you know is the fastest way to improve your mood. It's a quantuum leap.
  • The better it gets, the better it gets.

Telling my future

Today is the first day of my new life. In my new life I am abundant, healthy and doing exactly what I want to be doing each and every moment. My vibration is always my first priority. I do things only if they make me feel good. I do not care what anyone else thinks about my thoughts or actions. I am a teacher and guide and I have explored uncharted territory. I have jumped in the stream of well being full force and lived to tell about it! It is beautiful! It is abundant! It is like a waterslide into a lake rich with fish! It is like living in Avatar! The stream of well being IS REAL! IT IS REAL!

Interview with myself

How has so much changed in day?
All it takes to totally change your life around is a single thought. And that single life changing thought comes from source. Yesterday I took the time to connect with my higher self before beginning my day and it completely changed my entire life. It healed me. Cured me. Made me well. Made me abundant. Made me see that I already was healthy and abundant. I truly was. It was there all along. It was only my thoughts holding me back. Taking the time to focus and talk to Clair for 15 minutes was all I needed to change my outlook on life 100%. If you ever need guidance, take as much time as it takes to connect to your higher self. Visualize it. Then ask for advice. You'll receive the guidance you need, I PROMISE.

If you're reading this, you've probably already decided that a conventional path through life is not for you. You want to do the things you love and make money doing them. You don't want to work for the man, or anyone else. You know you have something important to share with the world. A day job, fancy car and flatscreen TV aren't going to help you do that.

I felt the same way. So I quit working for other people and started taking my website seriously. Within 6 months, I was making an income from jessicamullen.com.

My goal is to help you do the same. This morning I finished writing my first book, Get a Website, Get Happy, Get Paid. It outlines exactly what you have to do to start getting paid for your own creative efforts.

The book is extremely short: 3.5 pages. There is zero fluff, only the specific instructions you need to start living the life you know you deserve.

The School of Life Design Forum

I realize that a 3.5 page book might leave you with a lot of questions about your specific situation. So I created a brand new, private forum for us to share ideas, get help and encourage each other to succeed. In the forum you can:

  • get access to advertising and promotional opportunities for your site
  • ask technical questions about your website
  • promote your own site
  • get advice on how to best monetize your creative talents
  • share tips on ways to feel good and stay inspired
  • learn about different ways to sell your ideas
  • find the best companies to work with
  • ask me as many questions as you want and get prompt replies
  • hang out with other people who are just as driven, motivated and creative as you are

forum
You can purchase Get a Website, Get Happy, Get Paid by itself for $12, or you can sign up for The School of Life Design Forum access at $11/month and get the book for free.

Think of subscribing to forum access as paying tuition for a very elite education. You are at the forefront of a huge paradigm shift. The old paradigm was to go to school, get a job working for someone else, and if you're very brave, start a company and bust your ass trying to sell stuff to other people. The new paradigm is to do what you love first, then share that love, then receive nothing but love in return. It's the law of attraction. The Internet is making the new paradigm possible.

advice from clair
I am so grateful I know what I know. I know I am vibrational. I know I am not a physical body of flesh and bones. I know that my body is an interpretation of vibration created by my emotions. I know that my emotions are a guidance system. I know that my emotions come in result to thoughts I think. I know that my thoughts create my reality and that my emotions indicate how I feel about my reality. I know that I can change my reality by feeling different emotions, which lead to different thoughts, which lead to a different physical reality. I know that I came to this world to have fun. I know that I am a powerful creator. I know that I am source energy. I know that I am god in physical form. I know that as god I have the power to do, be or have anything I desire. I know that anything I desire is possible in this realm. I know that when I die, I am really withdrawing consciousness from this body and I will still remain consciousness. I know that everyone and everything in my reality is consciousness. I know that I am connected to everything and everyone around me, because we are all one. Everyone and everything and every event and circumstance is a direct reflection of my vibration. I know that reality is a mirror that reflects my vibration. I know that I chose to come here because it's fun to create with thought and that my thoughts expand the universe. I know that my thoughts are on the leading edge of universe expansion. I know that universe expansion occurs through thought, not physicality. I know that I am powerful. I know that I am beautiful. I know that there is only one flow in the universe and it is the flow of well being. I know that the flow of well being is the flow of life and that it has a pulse, or beat, or rhythm. I know when I focus, I can hear and feel and see the rhythm of all life. I know that I am in control of my reality. I know that all it takes is a little bit of focus for me to change my mood into something better. And I know that when I improve my mood, I improve my thoughts. And when I improve my thoughts, I improve my physical reality.

I am grateful for the technology of writing, without which it would be much more difficult for me to focus my energy. I am grateful for the knowing that I have. I am grateful that I can type out the above paragraph and know without any doubt that it is true and it is real. I know that nothing really matters. I am grateful nothing really matters. I am grateful I don't have to take anything seriously. I am grateful for this opportunity to exist in physical reality. I am grateful for the incremental changes I make in my life every single day. I am grateful to always be bettering myself. I am grateful to know I am god while still in physical form. I am grateful I asked the questions that lead me to where I am right now. I am grateful for my power. I am grateful life makes sense and for the understanding I have. I am grateful that throughout the years I have taken great risks with my mental health and sanity and they have all paid off because I now know the true nature of reality.

I am grateful I can say that I know the meaning of life. I am grateful that I can sit down and remind myself that I know the meaning of life. And when I remember that I know the meaning of life, all of my physical reality problems fade into the background because they aren't real nor important. I am grateful that Kelly taught me to improve my mood by telling what I know. I am grateful I know what I know. I am grateful I am vibration. I am grateful that physical reality is such a mystery to be unravelled. I am grateful for the indicators of my vibration which are all around me. I am grateful that when I find myself forcing something in physical reality (for example, trying to change some profile information on a website) and it doesn't work, I know that I should just walk away and the problem will resolve itself when I forget about it.

I am grateful to know that whatever desire I can forget about will manifest. I am grateful I know how to direct my focus. I am grateful that I can choose to direct my thoughts like this. I am grateful that every time I choose to focus and direct my thoughts it pays off. I'm grateful that coming to the point at which I decide to change my thoughts is becoming easier and easier. I am grateful for the great understanding I have of my reality. I am grateful I know how to focus. I am grateful for Abraham because without good ole Abe I wouldn't know any of this. I am grateful for teachers and guides and manifestations of love. I am grateful for the flow of well being. I am grateful that I can choose to remember the moment when I got it. I am grateful that I can say I do get it. I am grateful for every experience I've had. I'm grateful that the person I am is a result of the thoughts I've chosen to think throughout my life. I am grateful that my body and my personality are just shells, and that within those shells is pure light and love. I am grateful that all people are truly one entity, and that all animals, plants and things are included in that group as well. I am grateful that every single thing in my reality is a direct result of my thoughts.

I am grateful to be writing this post and directing my thoughts because I want to enjoy this day and have fun. I want to expand the universe and love every moment of it. I want to let source guide me and not force things. I want to be at optimal physical health. I want to feel love for myself. I want to emanate that which I know. I want to always remember what I know. I am so grateful to know what I know.

Wouldn't it be nice to always remember to take the time I need to line up my energy? Wouldn't it be nice if I started writing my posts right when I woke up instead of waiting and procrastinating? Wouldn't it be nice to macro-ify more areas of my life? Wouldn't it be nice to have the following: optimal physical health and appearance, abundant financial resources, endless creative inspiration, meaningful interactions with everyone around me, and a continuously spiritual mindset?

Wouldn't it be nice to remember to "be spiritual"? Wouldn't it be nice to remember what I know whenever I get distracted by the physical world? Wouldn't it be nice to go with the flow of well being? Wouldn't it be nice to let source guide me? Wouldn't it be nice to remember my power as god? Wouldn't it be nice to empower those around me with their own knowing of god? Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy this beautiful day and have it flow easily and effortlessly? Wouldn't it be nice to have fun? Wouldn't it be nice to not care about what anyone else thinks or does? Wouldn't it be nice to feel rejuvenated, loved, refreshed, energized and excited? Wouldn't it be nice to let go?

Wouldn't it be nice to go running today? Wouldn't it be nice to return to body pump and kickboxing tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to play Astrojax today? Wouldn't it be nice to follow my creative inspiration? Wouldn't it be nice to not care about what anyone thinks? Wouldn't it be nice to practice what I preach? Wouldn't it be nice to remember that everything is an indicator? Wouldn't it be nice to live in a house I designed? Wouldn't it be nice to have an RV? Wouldn't it be nice if Pwny and Linty both liked walking on leashes? Wouldn't it be nice to complete some projects? Wouldn't it be nice to focus on what I want and not worry about what anyone else wants? Wouldn't it be nice to think myself into the places I want to be? Wouldn't it be nice to list out all the things I want?

I want:

  • to be well. Healthy. Energetic. Rejuvenated. Immune to allergens, bacteria and virii.
  • to return to my fitness routine. To be built and cut and muscular and strong.
  • to have financial abundance. To pay my rent. To pay my bills. To feel fun and eagerness about money.
  • to love my body. To respect it's abilities. To know it as my terminal to the universe.
  • to publish my ebook. To have people benefit from it. To benefit from it myself.
  • to have my domestic obligations taken care of. Cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping.
  • to meditate and feel peace and calm and knowing.
  • to remember what I know all day. To remember that I am vibration and that everything is an indicator.
  • to be spiritual and not physical. To remember that my physical reality is only an indicator of my vibration.
  • to experience new levels in flow with my physical body through acroyoga, gymnastics and Astrojax.
  • to swim in the ocean and become one with the world.
  • to cry and release all of my stress.
  • to be centered and balanced and not influenced by anyone or anything around me. To live from happiness, not for it.

What I want to feel today

  • health
  • abundance

Today I intend to remember that I already am healthy and abundant. Today I intend to remember that physical symptoms are a direct result of my vibration. Today I intend to remember that my vibration is an emotional response to my thoughts. Today I intend to direct my thoughts. Today I intend to think the thoughts I want to think.

I love that I knew I had to write this post or I would explode. I love that I just spent 20 minutes talking to my higher self, asking for advice. It was hard to focus at first, but then it became easier and easier. Clair told me that my physical symptoms of sickness and feeling of lack of abundance were one in the same. She was all, "you know those are the same thing. You know that it's just your thoughts making you feel that way. You know your reality is a manifestation of your thoughts. What's the path of least resistance?" And the path of least resistance is letting the universe take care of my problems. And then I don't have any problems. The path of least resistance is to trust that everything is ok and I already have everything I need. The path of least resistance is to let go and believe that the universe will take care of me.

I love talking to Clair. I love that I haven't done it in a while and I now know for certain how valuable it is. I love that asking myself for advice is the best thing to do. I love that I don't need to ask anyone else for advice. I love that all I need to do to improve my mood and life experience is ask my higher self for guidance and she knows exactly what to do every single time. I love that I have such a beautiful visual of her. I love that I am her. I love that all I have to do is remember that and I feel so much better. I love that I can behave as her. I love that I can take the path of least resistance. I love how much writing this post is helping me. I love that I am Clair. I love myself and I love my life. I love learning. I love choosing to feel good. I love choosing the path of least resistance. I love deciding that I am healthy and abundant, not waiting for those feelings to magickally appear in my reality. I love that I have a choice. I love that I am choosing right now. I love that I am already healthy and abundant.

Today I finally recognized my already existing health and abundance. Today I level up. Today I release all that tension and resistance I've built up in the past couple weeks. Today I remember what I know. Today my thoughts are of health and abundance. Today I do not resist. Today I let go. Today I trust Clair. Today I realize my power as god.

Interview with myself

If you know that the best thing you can do is write this post immediately after waking, why don't you do it?
Because in the past, I've let physical reality distract me. I've allowed my hunger or discomfort to guide me instead of my inner being. Every day I am learning to connect with my higher self sooner and sooner upon waking.

I want to cover my walls with paper and pens so everywhere I look I can write what I'm grateful for and what I love. I want to wake up into the knowing that I have right now. I want to remain in this state of knowing at all times. I'm getting better every day.

Today's affirmations

  • I already am healthy and abundant.

Happy birthday Jenny! | gathering momentum for February 21,…

jenny!
Today is my friend, mentor, and former graphic design professor Jennifer's birthday! Jennifer taught me everything I know about graphic design and was a beacon of light in undergrad. I'm going to focus this post on all the wonderful memories I have with her!

I am so grateful that Jennifer was the reason why I was accepted into the graphic design program. I am so grateful that she saw past my goth kitsch into my potential as a designer. I am so grateful that over the many years I've known her, we've become great friends. I'm so grateful Jennifer taught me how to be a deliberate creator. I'm so grateful she taught me all about Japanese culture and tea ceremony. I'm so grateful she was so kind and understanding towards me when I was going through rough patches in my personal life. I'm so grateful I got to spend so much time living in the same town as her.

I'm so grateful Jennifer invited her students to her home. I'm so grateful she treated us as equals. I'm so grateful she didn't take any BS from her students and inspired us to do our best work. I'm so grateful she taught me how to do my best work. I'm so grateful for all the things she taught me outside of graphic design, like how to interact with administrators. I'm so grateful for all our long talks over beers. I'm so grateful she introduced me to Kelly!!! I'm so grateful she is such a brilliant professor.

I'm so grateful for Jennifer's patience. I'm so grateful for her deep commitment to teaching. She was by far the BEST professor I've ever had!

I'm so grateful I took her visual organization class. I'm so grateful she gave me so many chances to do well in class. I'm so grateful she's so FUN!

I'm so grateful I took typography 2 with Jennifer. In that class we each wrote, designed and printed an entire book. That class completely changed my life! It was a totally transformational semester for me as a designer and as a person. I'm so grateful I was able to process so much psychologically trough graphic design.

I'm so grateful I got to work on the arts and literary project Ninth Letter with Jennifer. I'm so grateful she taught us all so much about publication design. I'm so grateful she gave me responsibility. I'm so grateful she had us go on press checks. I'm so grateful she taught me how to interact with clients! I'm so grateful she taught us how to speak about our work.

I'm so grateful that after graduation, Jennifer invited me to teach web design at UIUC. I'm so grateful for such an amazing opportunity! I'm so grateful she helped me become a teacher myself. I'm so grateful she gave me advice and guidance every step of the way. I'm so grateful she always knew what to do. I'm so grateful I got to return to Champaign for another year!

I'm so grateful Jennifer invited Kelly and me to work on Ninth Letter after graduation. I'm so grateful I worked for Ninth Letter when I was in school. I'm so grateful Jennifer took Kelly and me to this high school in the suburbs to talk about graphic design. I'm so grateful we sung "What's Up" by Four Non Blondes on the way home! It was magical!

I'm so grateful Jennifer taught me how to be responsible and have fun at the same time. I'm so grateful she taught me what good design is. I'm so grateful for her beautiful handwriting and design aesthetic. I'm so grateful I've gotten to know her family so well too.

I'm so grateful Jennifer wrote recommendation letters for me to get into grad school and to apply for jobs. I'm so grateful for the gifts she sends us in the mail! I'm so grateful we are still such good friends even though we live so far apart. I'm so grateful that we get to see her whenever we visit Illinois! I'm so grateful to know such an incredible individual.

I'm so grateful for the time Jennifer, her husband Bob and Nan came to visit Austin!! I'm so grateful we got to have such a fun time with them!

I could never express how deep my gratitude is for this profoundly talented, generous and thoughtful woman. But I am so grateful for the opportunity to flip through my photo archives and remember the years of fun and challenging experiences we had together. I am so grateful to have been shaped into the designer I am now by Jennifer. It makes my heart ache to recall so many beautiful memories! I am eternally grateful for the time I've been blessed to spend with her. I am so grateful we still keep in touch!

me & jenny

Wouldn't it be nice to see Jenny again soon? Wouldn't it be nice to visit NYC or Japan together? Wouldn't it be nice if I could have even half as much impact as a teacher? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to remember all the good times without missing her too much? Wouldn't it be nice to visit Illinois this spring? Wouldn't it be nice to teleport there?


Wouldn't it be nice to sleep soundly and wake refreshed and healthy? Wouldn't it be nice to get back into our fitness schedule tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to get all the cooking done tonight? Wouldn't it be nice to post our 5 backlogged TPP episodes? Wouldn't it be nice to feel creative inspiration all day? Wouldn't it be nice to meditate?

What I want to feel today

  • Relief
  • Abundance

Today I intend to rest and recover. Today I intend to let go. Today I intend to focus on what I want. Today I intend to practice the feelings I desire.

I love writing posts on people's birthdays! I love having the window open and the fan on. I love KELLY! I love abundance! I love that it's FLOWING. I love how many people are doing gathering momentum & self love worksheets! I love feeling like I'm helping. I love catching myself in a negative thought pattern and then thinking "hey, you write about this stuff all day long, don't you think you should take your own advice and change your thoughts?" I love having the power to choose my thoughts. I love being the creator of my reality.

Advice from Clair

Sometimes you find yourself with negative thoughts about a new subject that you aren't used to dealing with. The advice is still the same: LET GO OF THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. Let them go. You don't need them. They won't help you.

Telling my future

Today is rejuvenating. Today is warm baths and soup. Today is listening to headphones while walking through snow all bundled up. Today is feeling inspired to do my best work. Today is sparklers and Diggers and karaoke and sushi. Today is cleansing.
