It’s Never Too Late… To Become Who You Might Have Been

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

Most people want to accomplish something. They want a better job, more money, a soul mate, a fit body or write a book.

That’s especially true now that we’re upon a new year… and a new decade!

But contrary to popular belief…

Focusing on what you want to do is not sustainable.

Instead focus on who you want to BE.

BE…come the person you have always wanted to become.

From that place, what you want happens naturally, organically and more easily.

Think about it for a moment:

Do you want shallow and temporary change that leaves you feeling empty?

Or do you want permanent, lasting and meaningful change that brings you joy and happiness… plus you achieving all your goals?

My friend Croix Sather says “For your life to change, that you must change.For life to get better, you must get better.”

Croix also teaches that change does not have to be hard. In fact, it can be, and should be, EASY.

This happens by tapping into the 3 levels of our mind.

The conscious mind, subconscious mind, and the VIBRATIONAL MIND.

Whats the Vibrational Mind?

That’s how you easily become the person you want to be, and let everything fall into place.

Croix created a brilliant video that explains how to tap into the power of your mind…

For easy and effortless change, so that you can become the person you’ve always wanted to be.

You Are NOT Your Story!

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

For thousands of years, human beings have been wonderful storytellers.

There’s a built-in yearning to get sucked into a story, to get lost in the drama of the moment, to orate and share your own tales with the world.

Modern story tellers include movie producers and politicians, actors and artists, mothers and fathers. As a society, we respect and admire great story tellers. It’s the reason films and television shows have become so immensely popular. They tell stories.

We each love our own stories, too.

I have a wonderful ghost story about a house I once lived in, which gets spookier and more intricate every time I tell it. It’s guaranteed to make your hairs stand on end, and I revel in telling it.

But by far and away our most common types of story are the stories about ourselves.

We’re great at sport. We’re pretty good at karaoke, but get nervous if singing in front of family. We love tomatoes, but they really need to be cored – or they make us feel a bit sick. We keep falling back into abusive relationships, no matter how hard we try not to.

These are our own “mini-stories.” And often, they’re harmless enough.

It’s when our stories start to hold us back that they become an issue…

“My name is Michael – and I’m an alcoholic.”

“I’m Jason – and I’m a failed father, and drug addict.”

“Yes, I’m Kyle – and I’m a homosexual with intimacy problems.”

Sometimes, our stories restrict us.

They define us as a very particular type of person, and ensure that we’re kept locked in our own self-created prison. Our stories pigeon-hole us.

Not only that, we also build on them – much like I do with my ghost story. We make them bigger and badder with each telling. We give the stories more power. Soon, our original stories become irrelevant – and our new stories take on a life of their own.

They eventually start to lead us, cripple us.

We carry the weight of our stories around with us each day. They stop us from achieving true freedom, they limit us to working a particular way – and yet we continue with the stories.

To use an Eastern term, our stories are our attachments.

However, not everyone lives like this.

Those that enjoy true freedom, individuals that are genuinely self-developed, know this simple fact:

You are not your story.

You’re not!

Whatever amazing story you can tell about your terrible past, how you’ve always failed time and time again, how life has dealt you an unfair hand, how things were just plain wrong, how you can’t break the addiction – you are still NOT your story.

Past results are not indicative of future performance.

What you were is not what you are.

It’s just what happened to you. It’s not YOU.

You are not your story. You are not your emotions. You are not your past.

And if you could just learn to let go of your story – you’d instantly release all of your baggage, and you could start today the way that you would like. Without limitation. Without issues. Without attachments. Without unwanted stories.

To some degree, our stories provide us with comfort. It’s the devil you know. The sick safety blanket. They enable us to indulge in self-pity, and enjoy a little sympathetic attention. But it’s pointless holding on to the story, because it’s limiting you today.

So, make a decision right now to be the change you wish to see in your life.

Let me repeat that, because it’s exceptionally important:

Right now…

Make the decision to be the change you wish to see in your life.

Sit back and think of the stories you have formed about your life. All those great stories you have about how your marriage started falling apart in the early days, and how you’ve been rescuing it ever since. Great stories about the time you were bullied, and how it made you feel suicidal. Fantastic stories about how life sometimes stinks. Especially yours.

Think about one of your stories.

Then ask yourself: “Can I let this story go?”

Can I drop this story? (Even if it’s a good one?) Can I release this story? Can I unclench the tight fist I have around this story? Can I let go of desperately holding on to it, and making it part of “me”?

And, if you can, just do it. Let go. Breathe out – and release. Feel it drop away.

Don’t go into it. Don’t try to analyze the details. Don’t dig around to figure out the “hidden lesson.” Just ask yourself if you can drop the story. And if you can, do it.

Because your story, really, is ultimately just that. A story.

People cling to stories because they think they give their life meaning.


Life doesn’t have meaning.

The meaning of life is the meaning you bring to life.

What meaning would you like your life to have?

Make a decision to shape your own story, starting today – and you’ll discover a true freedom and happiness uncovering itself in your own wonderful life.

How To Make Karma Work For You

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

You’ve heard karma as something like – what goes around comes around, right?

Buddhism describes it as, the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

That doesn’t quite hit home for me.

So what does it really mean and how can we make it work for us?

My simple explanation of Karma is…

“What we do or feel, we get back.”

The Divine sends LIKE things to LIKE things.

When we are happy and positive, more happy and positive things naturally come into our lives.

When we are cynical and negative, we create a downward spiral in our lives that invites Karma to kick us in the rear repeatedly.

So when we encounter a nasty person… remember that the Universe will handle it, and we don’t need to get upset over it. We don’t have to take it upon ourselves to bring that person the negative karma we feel that they deserve.

The Universe has it covered!

Smile, breathe and move forward. The Universe has got our backs!

Instead, let’s focus on what we want.

Instead, let’s make Karma work for is to bring us the opportunities our hearts desire – whether it’s a new job or promotion promotion, more money or less expenses, or great friends or even a fantastic romantic partner.

My friend Croix has created an amazing video about manifesting all the great things into your life.

In other words, how to make Karma work for you. 🙂

“I’ve Never Had Even One Truly Loving Thought”

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

Recently, Linda (one of our “Co-Creator” tier supporters) wrote the following question to me:

Thank you for al that you do…

I could really use some advice about sickness and sinless and how to deal with those illusions…the funny thing is that in so many ways I do not believe in sin but my “life” would probably say something contrary to that…

How can I undo the belief about it?

I know so many things but when it comes right down to it, I still see “people, bodies, sickness” and a whole lot of other things that I know are not real or true.

It’s obvious that in all these 40 years, I still have not had even one truly loving thought about anything…how is that possible?

I am open to everything that will help me understand the issues of sickness and sin and how to see everyone as healthy and sinless.

Here’s my reply…

First, I’d like to be clear that when it comes to the technical words & nuances of A Course In Miracles, I do not consider myself a “teacher.” I see myself as an advocate, a student, and a sharer of its wisdom.

Therefore, what I say might not be “true” ACIM teachings. What I will do is share my own perspectives, insights, and experience in hopes that it supports you and others.

Now about your questions…

These are some important questions, and in many ways, come about because of misunderstandings about A Course In Miracles.

The Course works in two levels. On one level, it speaks to our belief in the illusion. At this level, it talks about how we mis-perceive and mis-believe things and think them as real. It speaks to our pain, our relationships, our challenges, and our humanity.

At the next level, it speaks to our Divine mind, or as I call it, our True Nature. At this level, it speaks to our essence, our soul or spirit, a mind free of judgment and prejudice.

The challenge we have is that we see “sickness” and “sin” as real because we view them from that first level. However, ACIM in this context is speaking to our True Nature.

We hear the word “sickness” and immediately wish our body were healed. We read words from ACIM that say we can be healed of sickness if we stop seeing ourselves as bodies. (note: “Sickness” actually refers to a state of mind, not body)

All of these words are just ideas. They’re ideas that we collect in our minds. Over time, our minds believes these ideas to be true representations of reality.

Our mind even goes to far as to suggest, as your question asks, that we don’t even know what a “truly loving thought” is.

These are the trappings of the mind which tries to keep collecting ideas. These questions just feed the mind’s hope that if it collects enough ideas, eventually, the ideas will make it happy and peaceful.

This couldn’t be further from the truth.

There is only one way to stop collecting these ideas…

There is only one way to see ourselves as sinless…

There is only one way to see ourselves free of sickness…

And there is only one way to have truly loving thoughts…

And that way is to return to the present moment.

Any and every practice that helps you return to the present moment is something that will support you in answering your questions with truth and reality, instead of just collecting more ideas.

In the present moment is the only place where the mind stops collecting, it calms down, and our True Nature can then be the means by which we directly perceive the world and our experience of life.

ACIM is just one of many teachings whose primary goal is to return us to the present moment. Eckhart Tolle’s “Power of Now” or the Diamond Approach are other ones. Ram Dass “Be Here Now” speaks to this.

The mind would even have us believe that if we read all those books and teachings, then eventually we will “learn how to be present.” Again, that’s just the mind wanting to collect more ideas from more sources. All of those sources are still just many different ways of saying the same thing: return to the present moment.

To truly be present only requires a sincere effort to return to the present moment, and some practices / habits / tools to help support that.

In that spirit, below is a link to several of my “morning walk” videos and other resources I’ve created about returning to the present moment. The more you actually apply any of it to your life, the more you’ll start to answer your own questions – in ways that work specifically for you.

(Video) What Does Finding Pennies Mean?

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

(Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes, 10 seconds)

Do you ever find pennies?

I love that my friend and manifestation expert Croix Sather and I both agree on the meaning behind finding pennies.

Anytime that we find money, we are attracting wealth.


If we do what most people do and step over the money thinking, “It’s just a penny” then we are actually repelling money. Most people are sub-consciously repelling money and wondering why they are struggling.

If we are wishing for more money but walk past a penny on the ground then what signal are we sending out to the universe? At a sub-conscious level we are vibrating, “Money stay away from me.”

The universe is saying, “Hey, if you won’t pick up a penny, then why should I send you thousands?”

Most experts will say we are sending out mixed signals to the universe. You and I both know that is actually sending a very clear signal out to the universe:

“Don’t send me money.”

What if the universe is testing us to see if we are grateful for even a little penny?

What if by picking up that penny, we are struck with a great idea? New business opportunity, a new job, or even a million dollar idea?

What if we stop to pick up that penny, and when you stand up we meet the loves of our lives?

It is not about the penny.

It’s about what the penny represents (gratitude and abundance) and the potentiality of the penny (the million dollar idea or meeting someone).

What if you saw five $20 bills on the ground, would you pick that up?

I bet pretty damn fast. That’s what I did when I found just one of them in the cross walk. Or the time I made $35,000 in two weeks for a few hours of work because I said yes to an inspired opportunity that was outside my comfort zone. The metaphorical penny was on the ground and I decided to pick it up.

The thing is, I am just as excited to pick up a penny, because I know it is not “just a penny” to the universe. It’s about the vibration of money.

Even my son notices the pennies, and though he doesn’t yet get excited about them, he gets excited about me getting excited about them! It’s really cute. 🙂 Then he either picks them up and hands them to me, or shows me where they are so I can pick them up.

It doesn’t matter if it is a penny or hundreds or thousands of dollars. The universe is putting money in front of you and I all the time.


Always say yes to any amount of money with gratitude.

In fact, I’ve made it a practice to say YES to the gifts of others. Anytime we reject a gift, we unconsciously tell the Universe “I’m not worthy of more.”

It doesn’t matter what the gift is. I pause, feel the gratitude that somebody or something thought of me, and I say THANK YOU.

If you’re wanting to amplify this energetic truth about pennies & manifesting:

Watch This Video With My Friend Croix

Here’s the secret about pennies…

Pick up the penny (or any other money you find), connect with your heart, rub it between your fingers and say “thank you” to the universe. And then the important part is to pay it forward in gratitude. It’s essential that we circulate the money to increase its flow.

Buy a homeless person a coffee. Donate money to a cause that inspires you. Smile and compliment a stranger who is stressed or sad.

Our actions after finding a penny are signals to the universe that we are in a vibration of abundance. The more we do this, the more abundance will flow towards us.

The fact you are seeing pennies on the ground is a sign that you may be about to manifest a lot more money in your life…

Only if you are grateful for that insignificant penny. That’s because that penny is not insignificant to the law of abundance. It might just be worth thousands or possibly millions of dollars… or one step closer towards finding an incredible life partner.

Most people don’t know this secret, but when we align the vibrational mind with what we truly want, the manifestation process happens soooo much faster.

“My Spouse, Friends and Family Think My Ideas Are Stupid.” 😢

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

You may have a dream about starting a business but you have never had a business before. You may have a dream about loosing weight but have tried many diets and none have worked for you. Or maybe your family gives you a hard time about learning energy healing and they say “That woo-woo stuff doesn’t work.”

Here is what you do…


Understand that they cannot see your vision and dream. The universe gave it to you and not them. So first stop trying to make them see it.


Follow what calls to you. I believe that if you are given the gift of an idea and you are inspired by it, then you have the ability to accomplish it and live it.

So if something is calling to you, then that is your journey to follow. But here is the important part, this is your journey. You have to lead by example. Start getting results and those who doubt you will eventually become your fans.


Totally align with your ideas and dreams if you want them to become a reality. You cannot be half-in and half-out. That’s like having a foot on the dock and a foot on the boat as it is floating away. What happens? You end up in the water and you are neither on the dock or on the boat, but you are soaking wet and your cell phone fell to the bottom of the ocean.

To attract, manifest, create, and live your ideas and dreams you must be aligned with your conscious, sub-conscious, and vibrational mind.

You’ve been given the gift of an idea and the ability to accomplish, now it’s time to it a reality. That is a process of letting go of what’s been holding you back, own your greatness, and step into your future before it has arrived.

There are several ways to do this.

You can struggle and hope.

You can hustle and grind.


You can align and flow.

Which sounds easier to you?

The best way I know to align and flow is with Neuro-3 programming that aligns the 3 levels of the mind. You will be amazed how you life starts to flow and you manifest the things that have always seemed to be out of reach.

This advice is from my friend Croix Sather (who I’ve introduced you to before). He’s an amazing person, with a huge heart.

In his video below, he explains how Neuro-3 programming works so that we can align more easily with our ideas, goals, and dreams.

What To Do When We Feel Alone And Want To Give Up?

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

“I get asked, ‘Did you ever want to give up when you were running across America?’ When I was running, my body ached intensely, my mind was tired, and my will-power was exhausted. Every day I wanted to quit. But I never quit and I never considered quitting.

A better question to ask is, “How did you know to keep going?” Part of the answer is to know that you are on the right path and see the signs confirming that you are suppose to be right here and right now.

Every day I would run a marathon distance a day. Plus each day I would speak to audiences in need. These were people in difficult life circumstances. I spoke to wounded warriors, homeless shelters, addiction centers, juvenile detention centers, and rural high schools.

Every time that I felt the weakest and the desire to give up was the strongest, something would happen that would give me strength and power to keep going. These were signs and gifts from the universe saying, “Have faith, stay strong, and keep going. I’ve got your back.”

It was day 21, I was in Las Cruces, New Mexico and I still had 5 miles to go when my body shut down and I collapsed to the ground. It was late at night and I was alone. Or so I thought. As I sat on the sidewalk and my body was screaming in pain, I saw something shinny on the ground. It was a red coin about the size of a half dollar. On it, it said, “One Month Sobriety.”

My dad was an alcoholic for many years until one day he had a day dream that he was talking to his father when he said, “Son, it’s time to take your life back. I love you and know you can do it. You are stronger than this challenge. It’s time to stop drinking forever.” My dad put down the bottle in his hand. Threw out all the alcohol in the house and he never drank again.”

That one month sobriety coin I found reminded me that my dad had the strength to overcome his greatest challenge. So I stood up, I put the coin in my pocket and I started walking. My last five miles should have only taken an hour to finish. It took me 4 hours to finish.

The universe is saying to you…

“Have faith, stay strong, and keep going. I’ve got your back.” The signs are there when you are at your darkest moments, you just have to believe.

That red coin that I found, I carried it with me for the remaining 79 days. I would hold it and rub it as if a genie was going to appear and it always helped me move forward. When I arrived in NYC at the finish line, I gave the coin to my dad. I told him the story of the moment I found the coin and he still carries the coin to this day.

Sometimes he tells the story about me running across America to his friends and they don’t believe that it is possible. “Nobody can run a marathon a day.” He pulls out the coin and tells them the story. My dad has helped dozens of men stop drinking in his AA meetings and he has been sober for over 15 years.

We are all connected. Physically, energetically, vibrationally and spiritually. We are never alone. Always keep the faith that you are amazing and you are here to do something special.”

This story is from my friend Croix Sather (who I’ve introduced you to before). He’s an amazing person, with a huge heart.

This Silent Image Makes A Sound INSIDE Your Head (So Cool!)

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

They say an image is worth a thousand words, yet this image is probably worth a LOT more…

That’s because in just a half a second it literally captures the essential challenge in almost all of the probablems we face in our lives.

Today’s guest message is from Karl Moore – a brilliant, kind, funny, and all around outstanding human being. I am grateful to call him a dear friend, and delighted to share his message with you.

Enjoy! 🙂

With Love,


Look at this animated image:

Does anything odd happen while you watch it?

Do you hear anything?

Some hear a strange thumping, or beating, inside their head. Others describe it as syncing with their heartbeat. And a few people just don’t hear anything.

It’s a fascinating phenomenon 🙂

Here’s what’s happening.

Since you were born, the experiences you’ve had help mould your brain’s thinking patterns.

Over years, your responses to these thinking patterns gets deeper and deeper.

Think of it like walking over the same bit of grass through a forest: gradually, it’ll turn into a pathway.

That’s what’s happening here.

Your brain associates the picture and “judder” as something that typicallys produces a noise.

So it starts the process of actually making the noise — even though one never actually materializes.

Isn’t it incredible how the brain can send you in the wrong direction, without you even realizing it?

The brain does this a lot.

We each have thousands of “faulty pathways” in our brain, built up from years of external influences.

These pathways are continuously redirecting you, streering you away from greater brain power, confidence, health and abundance.

And there’s only one quick way to fix it:


You see, hypnosis can “rewire” your brain’s neuro-circuitry, restoring it to a near-perfect thinking state.

That means you can begin enjoying more mental pathways that lead to true success — and erase the limitations you’ve had holding you back for years.

Painful Comparisons

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

Today, I’m going to touch upon an important topic that comes up in our daily lives and especially in our personal growth:

How we compare our experiences to other peoples’ experiences.

See, after I shared how scared and helpless I felt when my websites went down, I received a TON of emails. Every person who wrote me was positive and supportive. Some shared their own challenging stories. A few people pointed out that I didn’t “have it as bad” as other people (including themselves).

This is interesting because it points to a part of our psyches that is always comparing. The thing is, this kind of thinking can be very detrimental to our happiness.

The reason is that when we compare our experience, we are actually not fully being Present. We’re using somebody elses’ experience to make ourselves feel better about our own situation.

Perhaps you’ve had a relative who is always “one-upping” you?

You share about a tough day, and then their response is “You think that’s bad? Wait until you hear this…”

Or perhaps on the positive side you share about a great day, and the first response from somebody is “That’s not nearly as cool as the time I went to Hollywood and…”

I think you get the picture. Most of us feel rubbed the wrong way when that happens, and for good reason:

Because that person isn’t seeing US as the Divine person that we are. That person isn’t acknowledging us. As a result, we can feel unseen when that happens.

Unfortunately, that external example is not the real concern. It’s just that: an example.

The real concern is when we do that to ourselves silently.

For example when we see another person have a wonderful experience, and we think to ourselves:

“I’ll never have that” or “I wish I could have that.”

Immediately that pulls us out of the present moment.

I’m not just talking about objects, relationships, or people either.

What about spiritual experiences?

For those of us who go to meditation groups or workshops, it’s easy to compare ourselves to others.

Maybe we feel like OTHER people had the deeper meditation.

Maybe we can feel like OTHER people get to feel the “Universal Oneness.”

Maybe at a telekineses workshop we get frustrated that somebody else could bend the spoon and we feel like we never will.

Or maybe we see how “loving” somebody else is and feel bad about ourselves… like we could “never be that loving.”

Those experiences are ways that we punish ourselves and simultaneously pull us out of the present moment.

And they hurt us. We feel pain every time we do that to ourselves.

What’s the answer?

Compassion for ourselves and others.

To not minimize somebody elses’ experience. Just to acknoweldge it. To say “I hear and see you. Yes, I see how that can be painful. And I’m here for you.”

When we compare, we separate.

With separation comes pain. We all hurt when we compare, even if we’re not conscious of it.

Next time you find yourself silently comparing to other peoples objects or experiences, try shifting your attention towards appreciation.

See the gifts in the other person. See the gifts in their experience.

Then as Byron Katie says: turn it around.

See the gifts in you and your experience.

When we shift from comparing to compassion…

When we shift from objectifying to unifying…

That’s when miracles happen in our lives.
