The First Domino

When a wave is set in motion there is not much that can stop it. That’s why it’s good vibrational hygiene to keep a sensor tuned to the waves that emanate from you. Once those waves are out there, there’s no pulling them back.

Speak a word out loud. You have just set a sound wave in motion. Can you change your mind and stop it from sounding after it has left the cavern of your creative throat chakra? No. It becomes a force of nature once it leaves your mouth. From there it generates a wave that will eventually find its way back to you. Like little oceans, we are always producing waves, with our thoughts, our words and every movement of our muscles. Not only do we influence each other with our vibration, we ultimately receive a magnified version of whatever we consciously or unconsciously send out. It lands right back in the heart of our own lives.

I suppose we can’t always be totally pure in the quality of the waves we produce and nothing terrible will happen to you if you emanate haphazardly. But much can be gained from bringing the source of your waves into alignment with your inner truth.


When you were a kid did you like to set up a long line of standing dominos so you could watch the chain reaction caused by knocking over the first one? Life is not so different from that game.

If you could look through a pair of magic-domino-goggles, you’d see another plane of reality where you stand at the center of a starburst of dominos. Every thought you think, every move you make, every word you speak starts a cascade of dominos. Of course, if you take off your magic goggles, the results of those domino cascades translate back into conditions in your life. If you wore these goggles long enough, it would soon become apparent that the specific dominos you tap make all difference in your life experience.

Since I can’t really offer you such a set of goggles to experiment with (sorry), we need another way to monitor which dominos we are tipping over and what the results are in our lives. Abraham tells us that our emotions are our guidance system. That means every one of your thoughts, words and deeds sets up a matching feeling within you. By simply turning up the volume on that sensor, you will know how you feel as you move through your life, setting off dominos in every direction. You will develop a clear, crisp sense of which of your vibrational activities are in harmony with your core and which ones are creating static, crosscurrents and will ultimately manifest in less than joyful life conditions.

Setting an Impulse in Motion

Since it’s New Year’s resolutions time, my suggestion for this year is that we choose a divine quality to tune our dominos to. What if we pick one big navigational vibration to use as our compass to move us through the year? Pick a good one. One that feels like candy when you think of it. Love, peace, joy, kindness, service, creativity, wisdom, you pick. Just make sure it sets a tone that goes well with all your activities. Let’s say it’s love, one of my personal favorites. This becomes your sole New Year’s resolution. Well, it is less of a resolution and more of a guiding star. As you interact with your co-workers, as you walk your dog, read the newspaper, kiss your loved ones, look for a parking space, as you do all the things you do, you check in periodically.

Am I on course? Where am I in relation to love (or peace or wisdom, etc. ) right now? This year, tuned to love, joy or kindness, you will cultivate your chosen quality so profoundly that you will hardly recognize your life. You will soon be able to depend on yourself to knock over many more harmonious dominos than not. Your life will become more extraordinary than ever.

Letting Go

The wave takes on a life of its own once we set it in motion. We don’t attempt to control each domino in the line up. This new type of resolution does not focus on specific results. Instead, it points our attention to the initial moment when the waves are generated. It concentrates all our loving care on the first domino. Tipped with love, wisdom, kindness, generosity, compassion or whatever quality you choose as your magnetic north pole for the year, that domino will manifest so magnificently in your life, it will knock your goggles off.

Happy New Year.
