Ryan's unforgettable Mother's Day delivery to Mom

This Is What Happens When A Son “Pays Back” His Mother… (Try Not To Cry!)

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Conscious Parenting

From the original video post…

This real mom living in Moreno Valley, CA can’t hold back her tears when she’s surprised with the Mother’s Day gift of a lifetime from her son Ryan, hand-delivered by Teleflora.

I also had tears in my eyes while watching this. It’s powerful, touching, and honestly what all commercials should be…


Enjoy :)

Follow Your Dreams

I Was Scared… And I Didn’t Even Know It!

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

Today I watched a very touching video about a mother who gave up her dreams of becoming a pro athlete so that she could raise her son.

And it got me wondering…

How often do we give up on our dreams (big or small)?

When I'm really honest with myself, every day I'm letting some of my dreams slide by.

Part of me is unconsciously aware of this. And occasionally it rises to my conscious surface like it did this last weekend.

I was networking with several of my friends (including Mary Morrissey's son Mat) & colleagues about how to serve you more effectively. During a lull, I wrote myself a simple question on a piece of paper:

"What is the reason why I am not accomplishing as much as I know I'm capable of?"

The answer surprised me…


So I asked myself…

"What am I scared of?"

First was a temporary lack of income. A part of me is scared that if I truly follow ALL of what I know my heart wants to create, that it means sacrificing some short-term income for long-term goals (that my mind believes are "less predictable" than the short-term income).

I asked myself again…

"What am I scared of?"

Then the REAL answer hit me.

See, I'm a single full-time father. I work when my son is at school and then I stop working. And while that is an amazing opportunity to be a great father, like all choices, it has an opportunity cost.

The voice inside me simply said:

"I'm scared that my son would feel abandoned."

(because the belief is that I'd have to work more and therefore have less time for my son)

That hit me like a ton of bricks. I had already known that part of the reason I didn't work as much as I could was to be there for my son.

My fear though, specifically, is that he'd feel abandoned. He'd feel like I wasn't a "good enough" father. That someday instead of thanking me for how I was always there for him, he'd resent me for not being there enough.

Anybody who knows me intimately would be surprised by that answer since I truly am a great father.

But the simple fact is that my mind was TRAPPED. And I didn't even see the trap until yesterday when I started looking deeper for the truth.

Maybe you're like me and wish to create more in your life?

Perhaps your dream is reaching a new level of financial abundance, elevating your health and fitness, pursuing your dream job or dream business, moving to a new city, traveling the world, finding your soulmate, or up-leveling and deepening your relationships?

But no matter how much of your precious time, money or emotional energy you put into trying to make your dream come true, you just stayed stuck right where you were?

Yeah. I hear you. Been there. Am there. Been that. Was doing that.

And I'm changing it because that I *KNOW* what's up.

You can too.

Watch this video on the 3 dream "traps" and how you can avoid them.

When you put so much effort towards making one of your dreams come true, but you're unable to create the results you want… this can leave you feeling frustrated, disappointed… and sometimes even embarrassed.

I know I've felt this way before. And as you can see, occasionally I still do.

The above video is the 2nd one from Mary Morrissey in her DreamBuilder video training series. After you watch Mary's video above you'll finally understand what was REALLY blocking your dream from becoming your reality (it's usually 1 of 3 things)…

And you'll know exactly how to avoid these "dream traps" when pursuing your dreams in the future. :)

Join me in the pursuit of being UNSTOPPABLE.

Unstoppable in achieving our dreams…

Unstoppable in living up to our greatest potential…

And unstoppably happy. :)

I'm sure you've heard the saying "you can't have your cake and eat it too."

I think it's bullshit.

But until we train our minds, bodies, and spirits to go for our dreams then we'll never see past the illusion. We'll just stay stuck in limitation, lack, and frustration.

I refuse to stay trapped and stuck. It's just not worth the stress. Maybe you agree?

Your Quality of Life Is Determined By

Your Quality Of Life Is Determined By _______

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Product Recommendations

According to one of my favorite spiritual teachers, Guy Finley, our quality of life is determined by exactly one thing:

The level of our consciousness.

Which also means that when we learn to raise our consciousness, we improve the quality of all aspects of our lives.

While this may seem to simple to be true, I've witnessed it to be true in my own life. It's the most precious gift I have, in fact… because it is infused with everything I do.

(Including writing to you).

A few years ago I went to Guy Finley's non-profit "Life of Learning Foundation" in Merlin Oregon and spent a few days there. This was after having already read a few of his books and listened to several of his audios (which I truly LOVE).

During that time, I really enjoyed getting to know the people who support bringing Guy's work to the world – especially Eric and Tim. We spent time chatting over meals and in the hallways.

Getting to know them was a gift – digging into spiritual Truths, and also listening in person to Guy's teachings. I spent some time out in nature while there, and I thoroughly enjoyed communing with all the spiritual seekers who come together to study with him.

It's been a while since I've visited, and I plan to head up there sometime in the next few months.

A while back, Eric sent me a message saying that he, Tim, and Guy had come up with something I might want to share with you. Given that everything Guy produces is truly excellent, I had no hesitations.

Granted, I get approached all the time to share peoples' books, programs, and videos. Almost every time, I say "no." Most people and their programs just aren't up to the quality I require for me to even *consider* sharing something with you.

And if I do decide to *consider* sharing it with you, then the potential partner usually goes through weeks or -months- of me evaluting their programs, the emails they send to their readers, test their systems and websites, getting to know the partner, and YES… I even do reference checks on them to make sure that other people, who I know and trust, also endorse the person whose work I am *considering* sharing with you.

As I'm sure you can imagine, most people –even well intentioned people with good hearts– never get past "Hi my name is…"

Of course, Guy and his team are WELL past those hurdles. His work is awesome, and I listen to his audios when I go on road trips.

Well, Guy's team has written a letter sharing more about how our level of consciousness affects the quality of our lives.

They also share what kind of insights, benefits, and new understandings you can reasonably expect to experience in your life after listening to Guy's newest program "To Touch The Timeless Mind: Make the Million-Year Leap in Human Consciousness" and putting it into practice.

Click Here And Read The Letter

What makes this offer unique – aside from the very empowering content – is that Guy Finley has priced it ridiculously low.

(You won't believe your eyes. Seriously.)

And between my personal experiences with just *loving* Guy's programs and books for several years…

And getting to know Guy and his team personally…

I am truly grateful for this opportunity to share this opportunity with you.

Breaking Dependency

92 out of 100 people fail at this… and they don’t know why :(

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Product Recommendations

It's a startling fact… and at first glance it seems to leave us with little hope:

According to statistics, 92 out of every 100 people who attempt to break a bad habit are destined to fail.

Only a mere 8% ever find a way to break free of their self-imposed prison.

According to one of my spiritual teachers, Guy Finley, there's a surefire way to shatter any addiction, break any bad habit…

Using a little-known but extremely powerful understanding. And he says that it makes no difference at all what habit you're trying to break.

Whether it's alcohol, smoking, drugs, gambling, overeating, harmful relationship patterns, overindulgence in sex, incessant anxiety, impulsive spending, insatiable ambition, fear of failure, chronic clutter, procrastination, literally anything at all.

Because no matter what condition you're facing, Guy says that there is one unthinkable solution that cannot fail if it is properly understood and diligently applied.

(of course as we all know, there is a difference between knowing an insight and applying it… therein lies the truth in all secrets of personal change)

Guy shares these insights in his very (VERY) low-priced program "Breaking Dependency: Learning to Let Go and Be Free From the Inside Out." Within it are some of the most revolutionary insights into addictions and bad habits you will ever discover.

Click the link below to learn more about his program:

CONTINUED: How to Shatter Any Addiction, Break Any Bad Habit >>

I'm going to give this program another listen. I already have it, and as with all of Guy's programs that I have (which is about half a dozen), I listen to them over and over… usually every few months. And especially on road trips — including when I visit his Life of Learning Foundation and spend time with him and his team in person.

AND, be sure to read the comic on that page…

I certainly recognized myself in it…

As well as my friend Tim who posed for all those photos. :)

Liberate Your Life TV: Episode 3 With Derek Rydall

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Liberate Your Life TV

Recently, I had the gift of interviewing a drug / alcohol addict who was suicidal…

And fortunately is not anymore. :)

(as you can see from his bright shining smiling face below!)

In fact, it was the darkest time of his life that created the conditions for his best and highest self to emerge.

His name is Derek Rydall, and his story is quite remarkable… as are some of the key insights and paradigms he shares.

Our interview went for just under an hour, and in it here's just a little bit of what we covered:

  • Key "mis-takes" about the Law of Attraction, and which Law will benefit you even MORE
  • What the "end of self improvement" is, and why you must understand this to get what you want out of life
  • The importance of embracing your shadow side and how this is absolutely fundamental to understanding your greatest strengths
  • How to use what you're MISSING in life as the key catalyst to get what you want
  • Why your past doesn't actually matter when it comes to having an amazing future… and what to do INSTEAD of "healing" your pain and issues

I hope you enjoy this new episode of Liberate Your Life TV – I sure did. :)

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free White Cake

Amazing Gluten / Dairy / Sugar Free White Cake (Not Vegan)

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Healthy Living

A while back I was on a super crazy elimination / rotation diet. I pretty much had to throw out everything I normally ate, and replace it with… well… stuff I never ate.

My birthday was coming around, and every year my mother bakes me a cake. So this last year she knew of my diet challenges and said as long as I buy it, she’ll bake it.

So I went to several stores, and couldn’t find any that would work. Why?

Because my diet at that time was to eliminate wheat, corn, tapioca, dairy, chocolate, and more.

As if the dairy / wheat / chocolate wasn’t enough of a triple-whammy, tapioca is the most common gluten free ingredient. So common, it was in every single pre-made gluten-free cake mix at every store I visited.

Stumped, I decided to do a little research and create my own recipe. I grabbed a few ideas, then modified them even further, and came out with something that was really damn tasty… which was a miracle given I don’t normally bake, and I had never baked gluten free before.

Since this recipe is for a white cake, and dairy free, I substituted coconut oil in for all the butter. Turns out it tasted really good, even for people who are not fans of coconut!

Without further ado, here’s the recipe. It calls for all-purpose flour, so below is the special mixture I use:

2 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup sorghum flour
1 1/4 cup millet flour
1/2 cup arrowroot flour
1 cup sweet rice flour
2 scant tsp. xanthan gum

The actual final ingredients are:

White Cake Recipe
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 3/4 all-purpose flour (see above)
1 2/3 xylitol (non GMO – substitute for sugar)
1 TBSP baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup coconut oil (substitute for salted butter)
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used sunflower)
8 egg whites (substitute more oil to make it vegan)
1 1/4 cup vanilla unsweetened hemp milk (I used Living Harvest)
2 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Grease & flour two 8-inch cake pans (or a 9×13 like I used)
  3. Mix flours, xylitol, baking powder, and salt on low for 1 minute
  4. Add butter and oil. Mix for another minute until mixed.
  5. Add egg whites one at a time, beating well after each one.
  6. Add hemp milk and vanilla a little at a time.
  7. To give it the right texture, throw it against the wall. (just kidding – wanted to make sure you’re actually following directions!)
  8. Beat on high for 2 minutes – the batter should become thick and fluffy
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake for about 25 minutes.
  10. Check every 5 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Once it does that, you’re done.
  11. Cool completely before frosting.

That’s it! Everybody who tasted it enjoyed it, and one friend who is an avid gluten free baker / eater demanded I give her this recipe. Well, even though it’s about half a year late… she fished her wish in time for the holidays. :)

Also, the all-purpose flour above is great for other baking needs… cookies, brownies, whatever!

Let It Flow... And Let It Go...

Let It Go… And Let It Flow

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

It's been said by many that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but rather, we are spiritual beings having a human experience. If we take this to heart, it also reminds us that our bodies are the vehicles by which we interact with the world.

Seems obvious, but it's easy to forget. We don't make anything happen in our lives without doing something. Even the most prominent Law of Attraction teachers tell us that no matter how strongly we believe and affirm our intenions, we must take some form of action in the world to manifest them.

This also means our emotions have a much more important role in our lives than most of us give credit to…

(even those of us who already feel we know a LOT about the importance of emotions)

I'll explain more in a moment.

First, as a side-note related to manifesting…

Now about those emotions, let's break it down…

Our bodies are made of electricity and chemcials. These are very real physical energies that need to be moving. When they are blocked, it creates cesspools within our bodies where the energy becomes stagnant and ineffective.

This is true whether the emotions are joy and happiness or sadness and anger. No matter what the emotion, it must be fully experienced in order for its energy to be released from the body.

At first glance, it may seem to be a good thing if "joy" or "happiness" were stuck in your body. However, the thing to remember is that if emotions are not experienced and allowed, then they will become repressed or suppressed. Yes, even your happiness and joy can become repressed or suppressed.

Take for example a child who is experiencing wonderful joy and delight, but his mother is depressed. Instead of allowing and appreciating his happiness, the boy learns that it's "not okay to be happy."

Over time he experiences happiness less frequently and with less intensity. The overall result is that his happiness and joy become repressed. As an adult, this child will most likely not be in touch with his happiness, and therefore, his passions in life. He may even develop physical illnesses to cope with all the blocked energy that remains unexperienced.

I like to use the example of a child who is happy because it's extreme. The extreme example helps us bring it back into our daily lives which usually aren't so extreme.

Though we may forget about the daily frustrations of our lives, they can build up over time. They can translate into anger or sadness, which then as those emotions are stuck in our bodies can be the catalysts for disease (dis-ease).

It's also important to note the difference between experiencing and expressing.

There have actually been studies that showed people who express their anger physically (such as hitting pillows) are more likely to have more severe anger issues.

Therefore, the answer isn't necessarily expressing emotions. Though since emotions expressed are amplified, in the case of positive emotions like happiness and joy, expressing them can be a significant benefit.

Regardless of whether the emotion is expressed however, the key is to simply experience those emotions. This is a skill that few people have mastered. It simply means that we are totally present, in our bodies, and accepting of whatever emotion is flowing through us. We don't deny or reject our experience.

For example, if we were feeling anger it isn't necessary that we yell, scream, or hit pillows. What is necessary is that we fully feel the anger flowing through our bodies. That we are fully in touch with our experience. This can apply to fear, jealousy, and other 'negative' emotions.

The same is true with happiness and joy. :)

As an extreme example, suppose you were at a funeral and you had spent some time completely remembering how much joy that person brought to your life. In fact, it's so much happiness that you feel overflowed and almost compelled to laugh or jump up and down. Still, this might not be the most appropriate time to express happiness in that way when people all around you are sobbing with tears. It might be disruptive.

Many of us would tell ourselves we "shouldn't" feel happy in that moment. But that's not true.

Happiness would be what's happening. It would be real and very true to us. Therefore, the best thing we could do is totally own and accept our happiness. Appreciate it.

In other words, don't suppress or reject your inner emotional experience simply because the outer-world context might not be able to appropriately hold and value your inner experience.

Ultimately, what we strive for is a balance in fully experiencing our emotions and expressing them appropriately. When we allow these emotions to run through us, even without "expressing" them, our bodies have a natural release of the energy. The electrical charge and chemicals can flow naturally.

By doing this, we can not only release old stuck emotions, we can also prevent new ones from becoming stuck.

(FREE) 5 -Five- Audio Programs For Brain Reprogramming

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Free Spiritual Gifts

I'm going to keep today's message unusually short and sweet… :)

My friend Karl has just released a brand new software program that reprograms our brains automatically (it's pretty darn amazing), and to celebrate it's release he's giving away 5 free audios to help reprogram your brain easily and effectively. :)

==> Get Your 5 Free Audio Programs Here <==

When you click the link above, you'll be able to get access to all 5 of his new 'Brainhacker' audio programs – and also a video tour of his new "Subliminal360" software.

I've actually used version 1.0 of the Subliminal360 software for over half a decade (about 6 years now), and I'm delighted to now have version 2.0 up and running on my computer now that it's available (only for PC).

In fact, it's the ONLY personal development product that I use every single day.

With that in mind…

Be sure to grab your 5 free 'brain changing' audios here…
And watch the video tour of Subliminal360.

It's a very impressive software program and does WAY more than the version 1.0 that I've used for so many years. And that's saying a lot given that I used to work in the software industry for almost 10 years. :)

And here's a very recent pic of Karl and I when we hung out in San Diego a couple of weeks ago…
