What readers say
“I just finished Moondance and I felt I had to write to tell you how much I loved it. I haven't been able to put it down and felt it totally resonate for me...”– Lynne Franks
“Karen, it's Dee, I had to call and tell you that I've just read the first 119 pages of your book and oh my God it's absolutely incredible... I don't want to put it down, it's your fault. Congratulations, I can't wait for the next page.”– Dee Miller

“When you say, ‘I want this thing to happen that hasn't happened yet,’ you are activating a vibration of the absence of your desire — so nothing changes for you.”– Ask and it is Given
Playfulness, curiosity, wonder. These are radiant states of being, which are gentle, magnetic and receptive. No argument there. The question is, when we slip into moments of self-doubt, how can we gently bring ourselves back into the flow?
Well, I have a few ideas for you and one specific suggestion you can do today: get your hands on Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Really! Bear with me a bit...
Have you read Esther and Jerry Hicks book Ask and it is Given? I like this book, because it shows actionable ways you can gradually increase your vibration. Doing this, of course, will bring people, experiences and situations to you, which match your higher vibration.
One of the games they suggest, is ‘Wouldn't it be nice if...’
“When you say, ‘Wouldn't it be nice if this desire would come to me?’ ... you are choosing something that you want, and you're being soft and easy about it.”– Ask and it is Given
Try this sometime, writing by hand and repeating it aloud. You'll immediately begin to feel a shift.
Of course, the problem with envisioning something you've never had is that if it's too far from your emotional state or experience, you won't believe it'll happen. Or, if you've never seen it modelled around you, it's really, really hard to sustain.
I have a solution for you: watch Gene Simmons Family Jewels. It'll be our little secret.
Here's why I suggest this. How would it feel to have a playful relationship with your partner, and sexual chemistry after two decades plus a similar, silly sense of humour?
If you're family-minded, what's the family dynamic? Respectful, filled with love and humour? Clear expectations for the kids, while honouring their uniqueness? Responsible kids, kind and engaged? A good balance of respect and fun?
In your imagined relationship, do you feel empowered to ask for what you need? Do you laugh a lot together? When you want something material, are you met with generosity and good humour? When you do disagree, are you able to negotiate, and maintain a harmonious connection?
Is he confident out in the world, but doesn't take himself too seriously? Does he make you laugh? Is he playfully affectionate? After two decades, does he still vie for your sensual attention (and will work for it?). Is he generous and communicative?
Is he sexy and funny? Does he laugh at your jokes? Have a twinkly smile around kids? Does he treat his mother kindly, and respect where she came from? Does he treat you and your family in a kind and nurturing way?
“What is happening is that there is a sort of collective alignment. Your cells are getting ready, you see. All kinds of things are beginning to come into alignment; things that you could not orchestrate even if you tried.”– Ask and it is Given
Yes, this is about getting your cells, your entire being ready to receive a new vibration. Are you willing?
The relationship I described isn't fantasy, and you can experience it as a voyeur, on reality TV. Gene Simmons Family Jewels ran for six years.
Yes, he's the front man for KISS, the guy with the tongue. His 25+ year partner is Canadian and former Playmate Shannon Tweed. Shannon and Gene have this really playful energy between them that is really fun to watch.
And, if you watch the whole series, there are some real-life surprises in store that'll keep you riveted.
In the world, he's a controversial rock god who doesn't believe in marriage, but at home (happily unmarried) Simmons is a well-spoken, goofy, gentle, devoted partner and dad who makes it very clear that the fruit of his loins will get good grades, stay off drugs and be lovingly be kicked out of the nest as soon as they can work.
He's also a smart, flirtatious, funny man who adores Shannon, and works for her affection after being together over 25 years. Shannon is quirkily funny, and an equal partner in the relationship. In fact, at home, she rules the roost.
Their two kids Sophie and Nicholas are surprisingly well-mannered and likeable. Their family dynamic is warm and they love to poke fun at ‘rock god dad’ (who is a softy) and you can tell that they enjoy each other. This is the kind of chemistry, you just can't fake for TV.
So then! When your heart needs help imagining the playful, yummy relationship of your dreams, give into this guilty pleasure. I won't tell.
Watch with curiosity. Open your heart. When you witness something that warms you, write ‘Wouldn't it be great if...’ and allow the shift inside.
