Living with a feeling of insecurity in your home can create a ripple effect and repell improvements you were hoping would come about. I recently broke both my wrists at the fitness centre because of feeling very insecure. I only had a square metre of space but what I was feeling caused a big problem. I could feel how insecure I felt as I started to work out and I could have acted but I didn't! While two broken wrists is easy to see, what I didn't see was all the other situations that were held back or riddled with insecurity that I didn't see which were not effecting everything in my life and my business.
Self Improvement in Home Improvement
In this story, Annemarie is actually me, the author. My life was changing in amazing ways, in fact I was attracting success in areas I wasn’t even aware I had thought possible.
I had found my dream man, was enjoying the luxury of working from home and doing what I am born to do. I was also moving into the fabulous new apartment I had fantasised about as I passed by it looking at its For Sale sign every day for nearly a year.
Faced with the thrill of planning the interior design of my new home, the next block in my unconscious which had been withholding my divine prosperity revealed itself when I began to look for furniture and fittings.
I reiterate as I do with everything I write that everything on the outside along with how we describe it, use it and feel about it is a mirrored reflection of the dynamics of our subconscious. Asking the key question why about everything we do and own provides answers that years of self development and improvement can leave wanting.
That said, the process of buying our furniture was the process of “finding things to create comfort and happiness within myself” as my home is a metaphor for how I perceive and live within myself. Furthermore my partner gave me free reign which demonstrates that my husband (expression of my male (power)) trusts me to ‘build’ a comfortable me.
Observe what happens. Watch how a powerful healing opportunity to life long self-sabotaging behaviour presents itself and how, once SEEN, can be eradicated so simply.
Self Improvement begins, but what do I buy?
I was staring at a blank canvas. Aside from the office (which I knew my partner would monopolise, fill with his boy’s toys and essentially fight for a colour scheme based on black and silver), I was excited about planning and designing another four beautiful high ceiling, classical and elegant rooms.
I was excited by the freedom to be creative especially as I was passionate about interior design and more importantly money was no option!
I had an idea of what I wanted already and set about looking for the essential items first; furniture, carpets and light fittings.
With a blank canvas, complete freedom to do what I wanted and plenty of money, this should be a breeze right?
I started with the LIGHT fittings (clearly light is a priority focus within me). I scoured the internet and found some gorgeous lamps in the U.S. I loved them because they were very UNIQUE and very ATTRACTIVE.
Having noted and listed them all in terms of what I wanted to order I then moved on to the FURNITURE. I wanted items that were both ELEGANT to match the chandaliers and high ceilings and were COMFORTABLE and perceived HARMONY.
I was also aware that I wanted to keep the rooms clear of clutter and when it came to the dining room (AREA OF NOURISHMENT) I opted to keep the room simple with a BIG BOLD dining table that was STRONG and the main focus.
As I couldn’t find anything big and bold enough off the shelf so to speak I opted to have the table MADE TO ORDER. We knew about a shop that is passionate about wood and sculpts all manner of furniture to order.
When the table finally came it was exactly what I wanted and it really made the room. My partner was also wild about it; it was a roaring success.
Then I decided on two carpets.
One carpet was for the sitting room (CORE/CENTRE) which was big and needed a carpet to CONNECT the furniture together otherwise people sitting on the sofas felt too far from each other and disconnected.
The second carpet was for the dining room (NOURISHMENT AREA) which was to be the centre piece under the dining table and chairs.
I felt attracted to Persian designs and surfed through hundreds of websites looking at carpets until my vision started to blur. That alone should have told me that some ‘discomfort’ was starting to creep in!
I was starting to observe that this process was starting to take A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME and even my partner asked me what was taking me so long to decide.
Once I had decided and wanted to order items I discovered that everything I had ordered was NOT AVAILABLE. I had chosen items IN OTHER COUNTRIES (outside myself) which meant that lamps were not compatible with the power outage where I lived in Denmark and the carpets were almost double the price to import!
I was so frustrated I burst into tears.
The key to releasing my success and more prosperity
As I had planned my home (new version of myself) what I needed to change came to light.
I realised that I was still ‘looking for things outside of myself to cement my unique, attractive, elegant, comfortable self’. More specifically, that by looking for LIGHT (true self as we are originally light intelligence), I was creating a conflict with my POWER OUTAGE.
Furthermore, in looking outside of myself for laying foundations in myself (carpets) it had been costing me double (the price of the import duty).
I also observed that whilst I like “strong, simple and bold” I was not actually living out that truth. The process of homing myself in reality was still “long and complicated which brought about exhaustion and frustration!”
I also had learned that in terms of my nourishment process (dining room) it was important for me to decide what I wanted and not ACCEPT WHAT’S ON OFFER. It was time to live out this truth within me.
Once I saw this I knew what to do.
I realised that this process of creating a home was mirroring the process of creating and cementing the person I really felt I was. The only way to solve it was to complete this process more quickly, smoothly and more importantly, heal the main issue; I had to shop in my own country (from inside myself not outside!).
I know that anything physical in my life is actually my ‘mind in action’ broken down into particles of energy and that by playing with the physical I would in fact, reprogramme my mind in the same way.
Instant Self Development and Healing
I told my partner that I was going shopping at a store (which in fact was only a bus ride away). I told him that I would head over there and asked if he could join me later with the car to bring back some accessories which I anticipated buying.
I hasten to add here that I had no idea what was in the store so this was a decision based on trust that I would find what I wanted. I was tempted to go online and surf the store but I knew there was a possibility I would linger again and allow myself to procrastinate.
Within an hour or so I had ordered about $20,000 worth of items. I was shocked at not only how much I liked and enjoyed what I ordered but how I actually chose items completely opposite to what I had been looking at before (what a surprise).
Everything in the sitting room (CORE/CENTRE) gelled wonderfully and a good test was to see how people behaved when they visited. They would often put their feet up and curl up on the sofa and I knew this was a sign that people felt comfortable; I knew that if people were comfortable then it was evidence that I was comfortable within herself.
This new home gave rise to many important changes in my life although it took the realisation about the carpet I had chosen for the sitting room to help me see a self-sabotaging belief that now needed to be dissolved which you can hear about in this video clip.
The opportunities we have to unleash our success and eradicate blocks and contradictions withholding our divine prosperity are right under our noses. The solutions are more simple and more easily cemented into our reality than we realise.

Personal Power is hiding in your sitting room
I’m guessing if you are reading this you are a person who is very interested in improving the quality of your life. I’m even hedging my bets that you’ve invested a lot of time, money and energy in all kinds of personal development books, courses, seminars in the pursuit of more success (great news… determination always pays off!).
In fact, perhaps this is the breakthrough point in your life, that moment when all your “When God When?” frustration bears fruit.
Before we begin can you imagine meeting me in your sitting room (or the place you call your living area of your home). Once you’ve got a picture in your mind we can begin.
So let’s get your success activated.
Take a look around the room and I want you to observe all the things you are not happy with. If you are just imagining this (as you’re in the office) then stop for a minute and focus on the things that come to mind first… you can continue the breakthrough looking at everything else in the room when you know what to do.
Focus on one or two things that you are drawn to and take a moment to ask how you feel about them or why they are there and then listen CAREFULLY to what you say about what you see.
“There’s my TV but I really want a flat screen, I’m tired of this one but I can’t afford a new one yet.”
We are not going to get too deep into what your ‘sitting room’ mirrors back to you about the perception of yourself at this time, we are simply going to focus on the most obvious things which can cause life changing transformation and bring on the success you are looking for. Let’s help you rid yourself of self-sabotaging mechanisms; the blocks that you need to dissolve.
If you are imagining the television, be aware that this was put there by you, with your acceptance. Furthermore, you have just affirmed that “I do not want it… I am tired of it”… and I want a new flats creen but “I can’t afford it”.
Whether you know this or it comes as a light bulb moment for you, the physical objects and people in your life are an exact and precise mirror of your dominating beliefs…
…So, while an object still exists in your reality, the thoughts and feelings behind its ’cause’ still exist.
So let’s get back to the television.
You have affirmed you have something in your living room that “I don’t want…. I am tired of… and I can’t afford to change it”.
Now, this is where life can transform and your self development investments can finally pay off.
I’m guessing what you might have had the propensity to do is observe “Oh yeah I can see that now”, then vow to change the beliefs, head into the kitchen to make another cup of tea and then get stuck into the dishes, head out to work or get involved in the hundreds of other activities in pursuit of the joy you want.
You may even sit for a while and figure out a plan that has nothing to do with the object which showed you the breakthrough (such as the television in this case).
The fact will always remain that whilst the objects ‘remain’, the mindset that caused them ‘remains’.
We overlook the things that are right in front of our noses because we are so busy pursuing the things that we assume will CAUSE the transformation that would bring on the extra time or money to raise the quality of our lives.
So back to the sitting room.
Continue to look around and assess your relationship with everything to discover what destructive thoughts STILL EXIST WITHIN YOU.
You created the room in your image, you are the CAUSE, the room is the EFFECT.
Those chairs, lamps, pile of old magazines, wine stains on the carpet will speak volumes if you talk to them and then listen. Ask “Why are you here?” or “Why are you still here? and decide how you feel about what you see.
How can you get the ball of success rolling your way?
Simply start with the things which are broken or need attention, move on to the things which you don’t use and are just collecting dust/taking up space and get rid of them.
We spend years investing over and over because in most cases change is not happening but change is not happening because we believe the changes required are too significant to invest in at the moment.
The truth is that the changes are actually simple, in fact so simple we can’t believe in them because we have learned that life is complicated and hard and we need to ‘earn’ the joy we want.
The science effecting self-development is based on the premise that life cannot change until we change and the things around you are the physical evidence of your thoughts and feelings so…
while they are still there… you are still there!
Let’s take that television (or an object you have focused on) and prove this.
What’s the solution?
Clean up your mind (the cause) by cleaning up the effects… the objects in your room… start with what you can do, success lies in the details not in big investments of money. The outside is an effect of the inside so if you change the outside it follows that the inside must change accordingly.
It was Albert Einstein who said–
“When the answer is simple, God is answering”..
and it is God that affirms that…
” you came to live life to the full, in abundance until it overflows”….
…not put up with misery, be tired, struggle to pay the bills, keep patching up the car!
If you want to uncover the matrix of your mind as it stands right now, get yourself a copy of Home Your Wealth and go through your home and personal spaces. The phenomenal personal power and abundance you’ve felt the loss of is lying in your home… use it!
For the last twenty five years, I’ve explored so many areas of metaphysics and spirituality. Bearing in mind what’s available today, you can imagine how many CDs, books, tapes etc. by the world’s highly regarded masters, I have stored away.
‘Stored away’ being the point!
As life’s becoming more and more successful, I’m digging them all out of the cupboard and doing the exercises. Now, if you knew how much I loathe ‘exercises’ you will wonder at what happened…and why am I doing them now, the time I’m on a roll so to speak, instead of the time I really needed them?
Point is, I didn’t get it. I’ve come across some amazing material. Every time I find something awesome, I put the kettle on and jump online to tell the world and her uncle. Did I put what I read into practice myself? Heck No!
Suddenly the word ‘dumb’ is coming to mind. I know I’m not stupid, so what’s the deal? How come, during those times when life really sucked, I told the world about my pile of lifechanging stuff and yet didn’t use it myself…just left it in a cupboard?
Many years back, in one of Jim Rohn’s seminars he expressed how puzzled he was that despite people paying $6,000 to attend the seminar, they didn’t go out and buy the one book he recommended in the seminar.
Similarly, years later, I invested in Paul McKenna’s hypnosis collection. I was experiencing a great deal of stress working for a bunch of Investment Bankers on the Trading Floor in London.
I was amazed by the results I experienced from the tapes, they worked! I was even excited about going in to work. My lungs were pumping up and down as if by magic, (go figure, it was fantastic!).
I was breathing as if I was totally relaxed although the job was very pressured and my head was saying I was stressed. Did I continue the tapes…No! (OK, that ‘dumb’ word is popping up again..)
Years later I invested in Sedona Method. Again, I had the most amazing experience in turning my emotions around. Did I continue doing the exercises…No!
Now, my educational background has proven that I am operating at above normal intelligence levels so why on Earth didn’t I continue with something that was working. God knows I needed the help, life sucked in the most miserable way.
I pondered on this for some time and have come to realise that on some level I was actually afraid of being successful. I gave myself an even harder time because I was very ‘aware’ in terms of consciousness. I already knew the resistance was only the energetic matrix of the physical body, doing its best to hang on to the thought pattern as protection…based on the premise that “if I let go of this, what will replace it“. I knew that, and yet I was resisting with all force.
I have no doubt that Jim Rohn already knows one of the reasons why people don’t buy the book. It’s too easy. Paying $6,000 keeps the “no pain, no gain” programme in place right?
If you buy the book, you might get rid of the programme that life can be easy. You might get rid of the fear of being successful and have it all. Well, let’s face it, you haven’t had any practice at having all your dreams realised, how do you know you will handle it?
This explains one of the reasons why, when I needed the hypnosis tapes, I was reluctant to continue to listen to them. Studies have concluded that 83% of our belief systems are controlled by our unconscious mind and it is those programmes which continue to maintain allegiance to the disbelief that we can have it all.
Now I am enjoying life and have so many enriching and successful projects going on, I have no problem devoting an hour a day to listen to the tapes, I actually get excited about it. I wonder what new opportunities are going to present themselves after each session. Success attracts success.
The bizarre thing is that once you actually use the material and actually get into the habit of seeing things through, you end up cutting thousands of corners that you envisaged as potential hurdles before you got started.
You don’t need to go look for your next step, the information will come knocking on your door. The irony about success is that it comes more easily and smoothly than you can imagine when you are in that darker, disillusioned place.
As well as the your misguided beliefs and attitudes about success conditioned by society, you genetically inherit a considerable bunch of programmes from your parents. Effectively you came into the world with a few concrete blocks around your neck before you even start walking.
You know what, success is the easy part. It’s living with lack and limitation which is the hard part – and you’ve already mastered that right, so you’ve got everything to gain!
Grab it with both hands. Your success is already there for you. Instead of doubting your success, simply ask “where” is it.
If you want life to improve, start following up some of those emails that are dropping into your email box from people who have achieved the results you are looking for…release that habit to press the “move to folder” button so quickly. Keep them current, explore them and take some action NOW.
Use the concept of NOW to release any fear and resistance
Speaking about the “NOW”, we humans tend to perceive time as linear . We imagine from where we are now, the future is some point visualised to the right, ahead of us, or extending behind us.
Everything happens in the NOW. Everything is happening simultaneously in the same location. Simply put, the day on which you read this, you term as “today” right? Imagine the same date ten years from now. When you reach that day, will you be in tomorrow or yesterday, or will it be still referred to as “today”. Yes, it will be “today”. You are always in the NOW. Even ten years on, you will still be in “today”.
How does this help?
Taking the premise that everything exists in the NOW, the future has already happened. You have already achieved everything you wanted. Therefore, you have already secured the information, the skills and the experiences you need to make it happen.
So what are you afraid of? You already have what you want within your consciousness! Whatever you are dreaming about, writing a book, living with your dream partner, securing a great marketing campaign, taking on new staff, branding a new product, setting up your own business…you’ve already done it, you’ve got a clear run. Doesn’t that put things in a better perspective.
Trust yourself, you will never let yourself down. After all, you were already born a winner. Do you know how many souls were vying for that body you are in now? And guess who won? How can you fail when you have already won? Seriously, take a moment and really GET this. You won against huge odds.
One last word before you do, make it as easy as possible. No matter how hard things seem from where you are at this moment, you can change it. Don’t dismiss it on the premise of its easy therefore it can’t work, or there’s a catch.
I have spent thousands and thousands of pounds over the past 25 years looking for very effective and easier ways to create success. It would not have been uncommon for me to take a two hour flight for a one hour healing session. That was before I discovered a more remarkably easy way to magnetise my success which I put into my book ‘Power Surge‘.
“When the solution is simple, God is answering” –Albert Einstein
Earth is, as many sources conclude, a Free Will zone. Simply a place to have an “experience”. I am guessing if you are reading this you have decided a rich experience would be more fun. Boy are you in for a surprise as to what’s possible – I’m embarrassed to admit how hard and how lacking I allowed my life to be before I started following my heart full-time.
Whatever’s in those pipe dreams…take some action today, you deserve to have it all
Your blocks to success are staring you in the face in the form of people, places or objects (from the country you live in to the pen on your desk)…your success is calling out to you. Unleash your wealth frequencies with ease, anyone can do it, get a closer look at your scripts… reveal the secrets now!
Your HOME, OFFICE & PERSONAL SPACES are full of HIDDEN SECRETS about why the life you want is still escaping you. Hidden blocks in the subconscious matrix of your mind can be revealed and dissolved using your home.
In order to transform yourself, your habits need to be consistent which means you must be doing something which can be done during your current day. If not, chances are it won’t happen regularly. What you discover in your home will amaze you about why things could and would not change once you know how and where to look…

I believe I will be successful, I think!
If I say your life will become what you believe you will probably say that you know that.
If I say you don’t believe what you think you believe you might ask how so?
For the last ten years I have worked closely with entrepreneurs. People who want to start their own business and want to improve the quality of their lives and have more control.
What I have discovered is that they constantly prove over and over that what they fundamentally say they believe is actually not the case and it comes as a shocking surprise to many.
Discovering this illusion about themselves proves very exciting because once they see this they can then make some adjustments to their 16 Hour power slot (from my book Power Surge).
How do you affirm what you truly believe?
Well the fact is that your mind contains billions of differing possibilities about what you believe based on all the pieces of information that have been fed to you through your eyes and ears. So it’s not a case of trying to go through your mind thought by thought, you would end up in an asylum.
Life as it is for you is presently your dominant beliefs.
Taking a very simplistic example, this means that if there are one billion thoughts suggesting you can get in shape and there are one billion and one thoughts suggesting you can’t then it means that everything will conspire to make sure you can’t.
The outside must prove the inside because it is the place from which it takes its instructions.
Successful breakthrough, using why
Whatever you do and whatever you put resources to whether it be time, money or energy, always ask a fundamental question:-
Why am I doing this?
You may find that you have to keep asking until you reach the core motivation behind your impulse to do it.
“I need to make some extra money so we can have a holiday.”
“Because we really need to get away.”
“Because me and my wife and have been arguing a lot lately and the break will do us good.”
WHY are you arguing?
“When we are busy we have less time to think about the other person and we end up snapping and communicating badly.”
Why will a holiday fix this?
“Because we will have time to be nice to each other.”
FACT: The holiday will heal the sores from the bad mouthing each other but unless the ‘busy ness’ is resolved everything will happen again when the holiday is over.
FACT: The solution ALWAYS LIES EXACTLY WHERE THE PROBLEM IS.
Once you have listened to your WHY? always check your facts as well so you can decide what is the best solution and whether the solution you see is actually based on fact or just an idea that you think can work!
Never assume because your life experience is too precious
Checking Your Facts – example
“It’s time to change the design of my business website.”
“Because my sales have gone done.”
WHY do you think the drop in sales is the website?
“Because maybe people are tired and want something new.”
WHY do you think they are tired and want something new?
“Because I’m tired of it so they must be! “***Aha the real motivation!***
FACT: Sales were UP with this website
FACT: No customers were asked their opinion to justify the change.
FACT: The words that come from your mouth. “Because I’m tired of it…”
Now, having established that you feel tired of your website this can be a valid reason for change. If you don’t believe this site will sell any more then it will EFFECT the outcome.
However, considering you have now discovered the true motivation for changing your site, you could find yourself able to change ‘your feelings… of being tired of it’ now you know the facts.
The reason for asking yourself questions is that you get the words directly from your database and you need to listen verbatim in every occasion. Your words are life and death to your experience.
Laws of nature; children always ask why!
Asking why has always been an essential part of our natural design. We start as children with a pure formula for prosperity. We are free to believe anything is possible. If you have children or remember being a child you will note that children start out by asking WHY? to everything…. everything! There is a crucial reason. To train ourselves to know why we are doing things so we can control ourselves (and our prosperity).
However, a child, though able to dream up a sports car that can go to outer space, cannot buy one. The child in you has exercised its right to be creative and dream but the practical part of actually owning the car has to come from the adult.
So, we grow up and can now independently open a bank account and can go to the car showroom without being accompanied by a guardian and can legitimately drive the car away (having passed our driving test).
However what tends to happen is that once we grow up, the WHY? training has been knocked out of us by adults who, when asked the question “Why is it green mum?” tend to dismiss us the more we ask. Or we got a simple “Because!”
It becomes apparent that asking why is not popular at an age when we are most sensitive to tone, vibrations and are most vulnerable in general. Children know when adults are not happy and as a child is trained to pursue happiness, it is easier to stop asking.
Then as we grow up, our world gets busier. The why is forgotten about and chaos ensues. The more unhappiness ensues the more we think life won’t get better, the more we invest in all kinds of vices and self-development material in a desperate plea to rid ourselves of our unhappy situations…
…but asking WHY? can rock your world, literally!
What will I discover by asking why?
- You are busy with things that will never bring a reward;
– You don’t want the things you think you want;
– Your actions are actually the opposite of what you say you want;
– You can cut out a great deal of activity and investment you don’t need to do.
The Bible states a clear path to prosperity…
“Except ye become as little children, ye will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
“If you stop the natural behaviour of the child within you, you will not prosper.”
The Universal Creator made us on purpose, stages of our lives were created ‘on purpose’… child, adolescent, adult, senior. Each stage holds keys to what we need to carry forward to the next stage to enlarge our joy and prosperity.
Today ask WHY? to everything no matter how obvious you THINK it is. You will be shocked and enlightened.
