My latest article, which was published in the Expert Speakers’ monthly newsletter. Something that I feel very strongly about…
Using Ferguson, New York, Boston and Baltimore Events to Create a New Reality
By Karin Cross
Every experience in life is an opportunity to better define what is wanted for the future. From the perspective of right now, do you want more of the same or do you want something different? If you want more of the same, do nothing and continue to focus on what is. If you want something different, however, then your thoughts and actions must shift to reflect the change that is wanted. Creating a different experience is simply a matter of making a choice and lining up your thoughts and actions with this choice. This is the Law of Attraction at work – what you focus upon expands.

I want to teach the world to “breathe LOVE.”
Take a deep breath. Let it out slowly…and again…and again. As you breathe in, think of whomever or whatever you are wanting to uplift or support or connect to with your love, and FEEL the essence of that love deeply and unconditionally. Just FEEL the love. As you exhale, release each breath slowly and attach to its flow the love you are feeling in this moment. Do this for 68 seconds, approximately 6 to 8 deep breaths in and out, at least once each day. I recommend this as an afternoon rejuvenating exercise. In fact, I propose we start a new workplace practice called, “the LOVE break.” J
Why feel love and why 68 seconds? Read More
