Mike Dooley



Do you dream about finding your purpose and living your dream in wealth and comfort, but don’t have a clue how to get there? I’ve got good news: You can start right now, this very minute, with your very next thought. And here’s the great news: It works!

That’s the message from Notes from the Universe, which are daily e-mails from Mike Dooley‘s TUT’s Adventurers Club. Dooley describes them as “short and often humorous reminders of life’s magic and your divinity.” They’re free and sent out five days a week.



Here is a taste of Dooley’s wisdom that speaks to shaping the future to suit your dreams.

Live your dreams now, to any degree that you can. With every purchase. Every (more…)

Are You Dying of Thirst?

October 18, 2011

Are you unhappy with what you have or with where you are  in life, and feel like you deserve better because you played by the rules and did everything right? Well, if you’re referring to the unwritten rules that required you to work hard, buy a home, raise a family and build your retirement account, it’s unfortunately time for a reality check. While those activities are undeniably worth striving for, the “rules” that supported them have been rendered irrelevant by societal and financial upheaval. What are the new rules? There are none.

Here’s the good news: It was never about social status, job security and financial security to begin with. It was never about your intended results, it was always about (more…)

You are Powerful Beyond Your Imagining

October 11, 2011

Here is an easy, surefire way to dramatically improve your odds of attaining and retaining a joyous attitude, paradise health and youthful vitality. I wrote about the power of affirmations in an earlier post. To recap: Affirmations in themselves are powerful, but when you add visualization, and even more importantly, the feeling that your desire has already been fulfilled, the results are multiplied a hundredfold.

Therefore, when affirming the following, visualize and feel that divine light and love are flooding your body, that life force is surging through your body, that every cell in your body is rejoicing, that you are (more…)

I Am Thankful That Thorns Have Roses

June 1, 2011

Opening your mind and your heart to accept life’s endless stream of gifts is a priceless gift in itself.

Some people are always grumbling that roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.
Alphonse Karr

Never again will you revert to a scarcity consciousness that whispers insidiously that you do not and will not ever have enough.

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no  (more…)

Rejoice In the Way Things Are

May 29, 2011





Everything that comes your way presents an opportunity to learn and evolve, which further expands your capacity to receive.



Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
Lao Tzu

When a desire surfaces, examine it objectively and learn what you can from it. If a desire leads to (more…)

There Are Only Two Tragedies

May 26, 2011

It sounds contradictory, but a prosperity consciousness and material abundance may be mutually exclusive. True prosperity is recognizing and appreciating that you already have everything you need to fulfill your calling in this life.

My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants.
J. Brotherton

If wealth will help you carry out your life’s work, then by all means build your bank account.

See where your own energy wants to go, not where you think it should go. Do something (more…)

A Package You May Not Recognize

May 24, 2011


Every prayer is answered. Heaven’s response, however, is often misinterpreted because the universe responds to the essence of your request rather than the specifics of it. Therefore, what you asked for may be delivered at a time you may not expect and in a package you may not recognize.

Be thankful that God’s answers are wiser than your answers.
William Culbertson





If you pray for a romantic relationship, for instance, perhaps what you truly desire (more…)

If You Need It, You Can’t Have It

May 19, 2011




A prosperity consciousness is the cause and financial abundance is the effect, not the other way around.

The best time to practice being rich is when you’re feeling poor.
Alan Cohen

Beseeching the Heavens

May 8, 2011

If you have trouble imagining a life of abundance, remember that every child of God is deserving of all the riches of the universe.

No matter how qualified and deserving we are, we will never reach a better life until we can imagine it for ourselves and allow ourselves to have it.
Richard Bach


If this were not so, your first instinct would not be lifting (more…)

Attracting Abundance for All the Right Reasons

November 22, 2010

Are you one of the many people who wished you had more money and a life of abundance, yet feel selfish or unworthy asking for such blessings? In an earlier post I wrote on accepting the gift of financial abundance, I pointed out that limiting yourself financially may be limiting the amount of good you can do in the world.

Therein lies the key to hurdling the obstacles that are blocking your success: a commitment to service. Whatever or whomever you choose to serve, using your good fortune to serve a higher good takes your ego out of the equation and clears the way for you to welcome true abundance into your life.

Here’s what I mean. Repeat the following affirmation three times:

I gladly accept all (more…)

Do Your Work, Then Step Back

November 11, 2010

It is said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. That is true, although generating income might take longer than you expect and be less lucrative than you anticipate. Proceed cautiously; crawl before you walk, and walk before you run.

The elevator to success is closed down. You’re going to have to take the stairs one step at a time.
Wayne Dyer

Rush blindly ahead and you may crash headlong into playwright Dane Stauffer’s tongue-in-cheek dictum: “Do (more…)

Your Own Permission

October 15, 2010

If you are not living an abundant life, chances are that you do not feel worthy of abundance. You probably think you have committed too many mistakes, experienced too many failures and made too many poor choices to deserve God’s blessings. I can relate. Then, while walking along a tree-lined country road this morning, I realized there were three reasons why I needed to work through my resistance:

Self-worth comes from one thing—thinking that you are worthy.
Wayne Dyer

The Muffin Man Strikes Again!

October 11, 2010

More than fifteen years ago, I was riding the bus home from a weekend work shift. Intrigued by the New Age concepts I had recently begun reading about, I decided to make productive use of my time on the bus by stating and manifesting an intention. Since I was a bit hungry and would be getting off the bus in the parking lot of Rainbow Foods, I conjured up the thought of manifesting a blueberry oat-bran muffin, a favorite treat at Rainbow.

I didn’t have a penny on me so I closed my eyes and visualized me finding forty-two cents. I did so with unshakable faith that my attempt at manifesting a tasty muffin would be successful. Trust is key because doubting the process essentially sabotages it. I opened my eyes and thought, Okay, let’s get started. The first thing I can do is look for money on the bus. I looked under the seat and (more…)

You’ve Gotta Give It to Get It!

January 7, 2010

Your every thought, word, and deed magnetically draws to you more of the same in even greater abundance. So, paradoxical as it may sound, the best way to get what you want is to give away what you’ve already got. The message you are sending to the universe when you give to others is, I have all of this I will ever need, for I have access to an endless supply of abundance. Like attracts like, so the universe responds by bringing you more of it.

To receive everything, one must open one’s hands and give.
Taisen Deshimaru


John Harricharan

I like the example that John Harricharan offers in this interview on his website, Here is an edited excerpt from that interview:

Just as you couldn’t receive without giving, you cannot give without receiving If you give, you certainly will get back, because here’s this strange little thing. You can’t out-give the universe. You plunk a ten-dollar bill down for the universe and say, “Hey, you beat that,” and before you blink, there’s a hundred-dollar bill someplace.

People think that this is really impractical stuff. When they think so, I want to remind them that I’m a scientist, I’m an MBA guy, I’ve been through business, I talk to people at all levels of corporations, and the last time I checked, I wasn’t totally nuts. This (more…)

Do Not Let Anyone Tell You Who You Are

June 15, 2009

The very life force within you is a divine spark, an extension of God. Though you cannot claim to be God, God’s divine essence is your birthright. Just as a drop of water is not the ocean itself, still it is of the ocean and has all the characteristics of the ocean.

Eckhart Tolle







I like how Eckhart Tolle addresses our divine nature on page 189 in his book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose:








Nobody can tell you who you are.  It would just be another concept, so it would not change you. Who you are  (more…)

Accepting the Gift of Financial Abundance

December 13, 2008

pile-of-cash-money-billsI started my adult life in debt and have been scrambling to recover ever since. Looking back, I don’t think my consciousness was oriented toward scarcity or prosperity; money was simply a tool that allowed me to get by for another month.

In my mid-thirties, after reading Creating Money, which laid out the spiritual dynamics of financial abundance, I decided to reprogram the way I looked at money. I’m a big believer in the transformative power of affirmations so I regularly affirmed the following:

I am financially independent and free.
I always have much more money coming in than going out.
Thank you, God, for bringing so much money into my life.
I gladly accept all the abundance the universe has to offer.
All the money I spend brings me joy.


creating-money-book-coverDid it work? Yes and no. The affirmations reduced my stress level about finances and heightened my appreciation of what did come into my life, but the floodgates of material wealth remained bolted shut. I sensed that I was holding back, but didn’t know why. (more…)
