Or how difficult is it going to be for me to manifest what I really want?

Could this be part of your dream?

Once I was in a seminar that was being given and were asked to write our selves a make-believe check for as much money as we could ever want. Having done that the next part of the exercise was to write down what our new life would be like: what we were going to be doing.

The idea was for us to compare what we were doing now with what we would be doing as a result of our new found wealth. Here is the catch… read more »

Why I wrote the guidebook, Creative Thinking For The 21rst Century, An Experiential Guidebook

Guidebook Front Cover

The book I wrote, How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking, A  Creative Thinking Blueprint For The 21st Century was the description of my research into the world of “manifestation” (how things come into being). It came about as a result of a health and emotional crisis. Years later I decided to report about my own journey of experimentation from this perspective as I felt it could be useful for life’s big decision making.  There are numerous self-help books but it is always refreshing to hear about how things have gone for the author first hand, rather than just their writing about other people’s experiences.   I had gleaned a great deal from the remarkable people whom I had met and the experiences I had consciously undertaken. Had I had the same kind of simple primer regarding what to think about, intuition and manifestation concepts as put forth in this guidebook perhaps I could have eliminated years of anxiety and embraced fewer bumps and scrapes along the way.

What Am I Going To Think About Now? The Most Important Question For Creative Decision Making Now.

Alice laughed, “There’s no use trying,” she said, “one can’t believe impossible things.”

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” From Alice In Wonderland By Lewis Carroll.

If you scan the news you will find a bewildering array of challenges that seem overwhelming and indeed almost impossible to change, For example there is the U.S. debt and the lack of political resolve to solve it. There is futility of nuclear war yet the maintenance of nuclear armaments. There is a desire for safety in the United States yet the willingness to allow anyone the right to carry an AK-47. You will now see that there are movements afoot to ask the really big questions. and not by  just the leaders involved but people at the grassroots. The political changes in the middle east are eye opening in this regard.

While these are  “Macro” items and I have been blogging about “Micro” items, (how to manifest at the personal level), the basic idea is the exact same:

The Bond book experiment is aimed in this direction.


Why Positive Imaging Sometimes Goes Awry

Posted in Uncategorized on March 23rd, 2011 by Sandy – Be the first to comment

I have been on a blog tour promoting my book, “How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking, A Creative Blueprint For The 21st Century.” One of my hosts had posed the question, “What is the biggest thing that people THINK they know about your subject/genre, that isn’t so?”

I am primarily writing about looking at our life’s journey from the perspective that we are creating it.

I feel that the popular view is that much of what happens is just luck, good or bad, and in many cases simply the breaks. While I certainly cannot prove it, the new quantum physics evidence, seems to suggest that our intents and beliefs put certain forces in play. The idea a lot of people have is that if they just have positive thoughts, then that ought to produce positive outcomes. However our doubts, fears, and other emotional inputs combined with those of everyone else can deliver just the opposite results. That leaves many people feeling that positive imaging is just so much wishful thinking, but not much more. But why is this? read more »

Another Ulifting Review for Sandy’s Latest Book

Posted in Uncategorized on March 20th, 2011 by Sandy – Be the first to comment

Wayne Hulbert of Blogbusinessworld has these kind words to say about Sandy’s intuitive decision making journey.

“Sandy Sims  offers a more profound, and personally challenging vision than one of architectural design and creative thinking. With a powerful spiritual curiosity, combined with a hands on desire for empirical and observational evidence, Sandy Sims enters into a world where the material world dissolves into dust.”

“For me, the power of the book is how Sandy Sims combines the seemingly separate practical worlds of building and business, with the world of the metaphysical and spirituality.”

“I highly recommend the inspirational and compelling book How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head, Under My Skin and Changed The Way I Think About Thinking: A Creative Thinking Blueprint for the 21st Century by Sandy Sims, to anyone seeking a guide into the spheres of human existence where few ever venture.”

How Frank Lloyd Wright got Into My Head…by Sandy Sims — A Review
Who decides your destiny?  Ultimately, the Universe works as a partner with us to manifest the things we want.  In How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head, Under My Skin and Changed the Way I Think About Thinking, author Sandy Sims takes readers on a journey of self-discovery–his own and theirs.  Having an idea inspired by the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, Sandy sets out to make that idea a reality.  Along the way, he meets many teachers and learns lessons we often don’t stop and listen for.  Determined to realize his dream, regardless of how impractical it may have appeared, Mr. Sims learned how the Universe strives to work with us to help us realize our full potential and our ability to create what we seek.

The companion workbook, Creative Thinking for the 21st Century:  An Experiential Guidebook, walks readers through the steps of discovering what they really want from life, clearing the blocks along the path and realizing that each of us has the power to create our own realities.

Why does the book get such high marks? read more »

The Journey of Truth

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. “  Arthur Schopenhauer

In today’s world you have to be very vigilant in discerning truth from hype.  I am currently living in Mexico. People back in the states asked me if I am not crazy saying matter of factly they would not go near Mexico with a ten foot pole.  Are they right? read more »
