Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 233-August 21 “It all comes from the mind. I’ve seen the most incredible success stories…because a person had a dream and it was so powerful no one could touch it. He’d feel it, believe it, think about it all day and night.

He filled himself up to overflowing, let the dam burst and filled the room with starburst laughing delight.

Hot Fudge Sundaes

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 228-August 16 “There can be no rainbow without a storm and a cloud.”—F.H. Vincent Yum. I can taste it now, that glorious vanilla ice cream, covered with the creamiest hot fudge, foamy whipped cream, crunchy walnuts, and the maraschino cherry precariously perched at the top of the heap, about to make its slippery pink slide down the ice cream mountain. The hot fudge came in its own little silver pitcher, so we could pour it ourselves, mixing fire and ice in our own private chemistry class in a goblet.
