Leveraging the Universe- Book review

Yesterday a RL friend posted to my FB account an announcement that Mike Dooley’s latest book, “Leveraging the Universe: 7 steps to Engaging Life’s Magic” had just been released and that HE himself would be in Denver, signing copies today, at the LoDo Tattered Cover Bookstore!
All I had to do was say YES, get myself down there by 6:30pm with plastic.
Mission Accomplished!

Not being one to let a golden opportunity slip by, I jumped at the chance to meet one of my inspirational heroes! I follow Mike on Twitter and receive his daily “Notes from the Universe” in my email account. He’s someone I look forward to ‘hearing from’ every day!!

The upbeat, irreverent and heart-felt messages Mike sends out has really changed my perspective to finally *embrace* his positive daily affirmations. Doing so has given me a new appreciation for a ‘personal relationship’ to the Universe…something churches/temples and synagogues espouse to regarding aspects of their Supreme Being/s but never really became a reality for me. [skeptic that I am]

The messages that “The Universe” sends out daily are so full of warmth and love that one can’t help feeling being touched and hugged in a personal, squishy way! AND I am able through this blog to inspire other people in my network to do All Great and Good things in their lives as well! So I serve as a link in the chain as a carrier of light and positive energy 🙂

I just got my copy of the book purchased and signed- so I haven’t had a chance to read through it yet- but count on it! All of Mikes other books have been FANTASTIC and come highly recommended by this blogger.

The BEST parts of the night, tho, were all of the synchronicities I met up with: I drove straight down to the building, not worrying if Id make it there in time or not, stopping only once- found a parking spot right across the street, got to pay with my debit card, waltzed into the bookstore, bought a copy of the book, got in a quickly moving line and found an empty seat…all within 30 minutes!

Then, after the presentation, a woman seated behind me swapped her numbered ticket with me, bumping me up 75 spaces! I passed my ticket to a woman seated near me, bumping her up 100 spaces from her spot and got to meet and speak with Mike! As I expected, he was just as warm and personable as he is in his videotapes online- only a bit less goofy. He had 300 people to sign books for after all, which makes for a long day. I had my business card stuck in my book, so he could read the spelling of my name and at the last minute decided to let him keep the card – what the heck!? if he actually takes the time to read this blog, and likes it, who knows where that connection might lead? I know I’ve still gotta DO the basic footwork in order to MANIFEST my BEST REALITY!
An THEN, on the way home, Universe allowed me to breeze thru all of the stop lights, and upon turning on one of the last major streets near my home, my favorite instrumental song *of all time* CLASSICAL GAS played on the radio! <3 (Thank you Mason Williams) <3 I cranked it up and sang along to it at the top of my lungs as my left hand flew thru the breeze testifying to the world that the Universe is So Good! *BIG smiles and a heart full of love*

and THANK YOU UNIVERSE for always being there, supporting my dreams and keeping it real!
Over and out.
