I was in Walgreens the other day, and I saw the Hollywood Cookie Diet. Imagine eating several cookies a day and losing all the weight you want. No need to look at what is causing your weight imbalance, or connecting with a deeper Truth about your weight, you can just choose some chocolate chips and “poof” -- you too can shed those unwanted pounds.

Not magic, just the basics of caloric intake and how metabolism and weight loss works...
There may not be a magic recipe for cookies or your financial growth; however, there are three ingredients that will help you move forward when manifesting more money:
We work so hard to find the mojo in our lives, and sometimes it feels difficult to find our mojo with money! Here are a few tips that have helped me along the way:
I’m curious -- what's your relationship to money and manifestation? Where have you felt stuck with (or broken free from) financial obstacles? How do you find your money mojo? Share your story!
