The Power of Thought

Opihi, the Menehune Fisher Boy

About 27 years ago, I was introduced to Shakti Gawain’s book “Creative Visualization”. Reading it drastically changed the way I live my life. Do we really have control over our destinies just by visualizing our dreams and thinking positive, affirming thoughts? Reflecting on my own life, my answer definitely is:” Yes, we do!” I have proven it to myself many times. In the past, I manifested my dream of the “Home of My Heart” just by using visualization for the pleasure of it, without believing in anything. 
After this magical manifestation, I have made it a habit to meditate, visualize, affirm my beliefs, and think the right thought. The results have been simply amazing, turning me into a true believer of the higher power and our oneness with the energies of the Universe. 
Listening to Mike Dooley’s audio program “Infinite Possibilities” has further strengthened my belief in “thoughts becoming the things and events of life” as well as inspired the creation of the Menehune boy Opihi. 
Opihi gives the perfect example of how simple it is to create reality by using visualization combined with affirmative thoughts. Opihi imagines the things he would like to happen in detail. 

Here is part of Opihi’s story:

Opihi loves to play. While he waits patiently for the right fish to come to his pole he visualizes what it will be like when his Menehune Kaukinis (cousins), Wiliwili, Mahimahi and Nalu, come down to the beach and they start playing together. Opihi imagines how they will swim in the ocean, build castles in the black sand, and play races with the black beach crabs. They will have a blast! Opihi knows that his thoughts are like seeds which grow into reality. 
Sure enough: there come his Kaukinis, Wiliwili, Mahimahi, and Nalu and the fun begins!

Look at Opihi and let your thoughts too become the seeds of what you wish to harvest!

Home of My Heart, A Story of Manifestation

Living in Hawaii has been my greatest inspiration and led me to many wonderful things including writing "Home of My Heart" and the creation of Magical Hawaiian Menehunes.
After 29 years in Hawaii my accent still gives me away. The first thing people always ask me is:” Where are you from? You have an accent.” I tell them, I was born and raised in Germany. The next question is:” What brought you to Hawaii?” My answer always is:” A coincidence.” Explaining this “coincidence” was one of the reasons I decided to write my story.
I thought about writing "Home of My Heart" for a long time. A couple of years ago I finally did it. Writing it, I wanted to remind myself of the power of thought and visualization, the miracles in life, the love of the Universe. But above all else, I wanted to inspire, empower and strengthen the beliefs of others by telling them about one of the miracles in my life. This brings me more joy than words can say.
May you be blessed with everything your heart desires.
