Over the years, people have come
to me and asked how I got into the special events industry
or how I started my special events location and production company and
became an “expert” so quickly. Then when I began teaching my Feel Free
to Prosper program, my students knew that I used the principles that I
teach in my corporate business, but they wanted to know if I applied
the Universal laws and prosperity principles to create the business two
decades earlier. After all, so many people are searching for their true
place in life or wanting to express themselves as entrepreneurs, but
don’t know how to begin.
I thought that one day I would put the story in writing for those who
are curious and in the summer of 2006, I decided to begin telling the
story on my Feel Free to Prosper Network on the social networking site
called Ryze.com. It seemed rather timely, as that summer I had also
made the decision to completely release my corporate business in order
to devote myself exclusively to teaching my Feel Free to Prosper
program and to business endeavors related to my teachings.
The sole corporate client I maintained those past few years was
Campbell Soup Company®.
spent over $450 million dollars to create promotions targeted at
children. Campbell came to me literally “out of the blue” just after I
began teaching my Feel Free to Prosper program in 2003. I had a key
role in their promotions, securing spectacular locations - Hollywood
mansions, the English castle and the private Caribbean island that
lucky children won for a week’s stay with their friends and family as
the Grand Prize for each promotion. That August was the fulfillment
month for three of the promotions booked earlier in the year. I became
aware during those summer events that it was time to “cut the cord”
after two decades of owning a business that serviced the world’s
So how did this career of two decades begin? What was my background and
experience? How did I get started? Did I have any material or financial
advantage? Were prosperity principles involved?
• How did this career begin? Out
of the blue
• What was my experience? None
• How did I get started? Pure
synchronicity and intuitive guidance
• Did I have any material or financial advantage? Absolutely not
• Were prosperity principles involved? Absolutely yes!
Be prepared for a long, detailed account of synchronicity and Universal
guidance borne out of my application of prosperity principles. This is
a free-flowing tale, spontaneously written as I remembered the details.
I am offering you the exciting story in full, but it was written online
in sections, so that it would not be overwhelming and so that readers
could absorb the full impact of the synchronicity and prosperity
lessons learned along the way. Those sections later became
the chapters of the manuscript and soon-to-be-published book.
discover how the beginning of this story flows into the subsequent
connected experiences and weaves itself into the creation of my company
and the business that lasted over twenty years, despite some very
intense “learning” periods.
My story begins in the early ‘80s and at a point in my life when I was
in limbo and in debt. I had made my first attempt at a freelance
business that gave me some experience but didn’t go very far. I was at
a crossroads and didn’t know what direction to take. I was also in
various stages of the study of metaphysics and learning about the mind
and mental and spiritual laws. I knew I had to do something about my
situation and do it quickly. I was always intrigued with the
metaphysical and psychic world and areas of parapsychology, but most
fascinating to me of all was the idea of being “guided” by our
intuition. So I made the decision that my immediate “job” would be to
seriously apply what I had been learning from the literature of the
world’s greatest prosperity teachers. And I did just that. I took what
I was learning and put my heart into applying it.
with me on my journey…
I: Brancusi Who?
was a very, very hot summer day in Los Angeles - a heat wave. The last
thing I would have thought to do was to go shopping for clothes or run
around town in the heat. Hey, I loved fashion but there were certainly
no funds for new wardrobe items. I had to find a way out of thousands
of dollars of debt I had somehow managed to incur while “freelancing”
Suddenly I had a spontaneous urge to go to the very exclusive
department store, Bonwit Teller, on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly
Hills. I didn’t know why. Well, I reasoned, at least it would be well
air-conditioned. I drove to the store and went to the designer
There I immediately ran into a saleswoman whom I had not seen since she
worked at Neiman Marcus and had sold me a few items maybe a year or two
before. Imagine my surprise when she said she had been thinking of me
just that morning and said to herself, “I’ll bet Marilyn would know
what to do with this situation.” She knew about a woman who lived in
Palm Springs who was trying to sell a sculpture by the sculptor
Brancusi. The woman was offering a finder’s fee to someone who could
find a buyer for her.
Brancusi? Never heard of him. I actually knew nothing about the art
business and certainly wouldn’t know how to find a buyer for any kind
of art or sculpture. But I was intrigued. Why, out of 14 million people
in this city, was I intuitively drawn to this opportunity? Why was
this saleswoman thinking of me for the task that morning even though
she hadn’t seen me in well over a year and didn’t know much about my
business ability? Why did I feel prompted to go to the store? My
intuition told me that this was a response from the prosperity work I
was applying and
that I should follow through even though I had no idea what to do at
I obtained photos of the sculpture from the owner and did some research
by calling galleries and such. I discovered that the owner had already
been shopping it around for a couple of years. Furthermore, Constantin
Brancusi is a famous sculptor whose modern abstract works sell for as
much as millions, but this was an extremely early piece of his - a
plaster head of a boy. It was not his abstract style at all, it wasn’t
even a bronze, and it apparently had no value in the art
sculpture had been a wedding present to this woman many decades earlier
in Romania. When the Nazis came in and confiscated valuables, she
smuggle the piece out through Italy and brought it to America with her
years later. Now as an older woman, she had no more attachment to the
work and preferred the income instead. Wherever I called or visited,
gallery owners and art professionals told me to forget it; no one would
want it. The piece is too early, it’s not Brancusi’s distinct style,
it’s only plaster, not even a completed sculpture. (I will say though,
from the photos I had, it was a sensitive and lovely version of this
young boy’s head.)
all I could feel inside was that this was MY prosperity
demonstration and it was given to me for a reason. I would not give up…
Around that time I was attending a Wednesday night healing class
conducted by Janet Levy, a metaphysical teacher who called her class
Expect a Miracle. In fact, she would give us all small affirmation
cards. On one side was printed “Expect a Miracle” and on the blank side
we were to write our own affirmation or what we wanted to demonstrate,
another metaphysical term for "manifest."
After several months of getting nowhere with calls regarding a source
to buy this Brancusi, I made a decision. I sat down quietly and very
simply said to Infinite Intelligence, the Universe... “Find me a buyer
for the Brancusi.” That was it. Simple. Clear. Effortless. There would
be no more outer action on my part. I had done whatever I could do
myself with no result.
I intuitively must have known it was time to let go and let the
Universe take over. As you will see, this was one of my greatest
lessons in spiritual law, as I learned from this experience that we do
not have to exhaust ourselves trying to force things to happen and THEN
decide to go to our Source. We can go to our Source at the very
beginning and save lots of time and hassle. As the saying goes, we can
go direct and cut out the middleman.
I continued to sit quietly and suddenly I heard an inaudible whisper
coming from somewhere in my consciousness. My inner voice whispered
“Guggenheim Museum.” That’s all. Guggenheim Museum. I had lived in
Manhattan a couple of times so I knew the Guggenheim Museum was there,
but I had never been there because I wasn’t a modern art fan. (I had
often visited the Metropolitan Museum.) But the voice said Guggenheim
Museum. It was clear.
I picked up the phone and called the Guggenheim in New York and spoke
with the curator. She said she knew the sculpture because the owner had
stored it with them years before when she first came to America and
while she was settling in Palm Springs in the West. But she said they
would have no interest in it. She could, however, give me the name of
an art dealer who might be able to direct me somewhere. I made the call
to the art dealer, Harold Diamond.
The art dealer did not refer me to anyone. Instead, he told me that if
I was willing to bring the plaster head to New York, he would buy it
himself! He offered $50,000.
imagine this scenario...
I had been living in Los Angeles for about eight years. I had come to
LA after spending a year in New York City. I was no longer accustomed
to the cold climate (except for an occasional trip to the snow here at
Lake Arrowhead). I gathered warm clothing while the owner of the
Brancusi, having accepted the dealer’s offer, paid for my plane ticket
and prepared me for my trip to make the sale. This was the first time I
actually saw the real plaster head, as it had been stored in a vault in
Palm Springs. It was now in a canvas bag with small wheels on the
bottom and it was exclusively my responsibility to get it safely to its
It was January 5th. There was a mass exodus in both airports - LAX and
JFK - with people returning after their holiday travels. And here I was
rolling this plaster head in a canvas bag among throngs of travelers,
taking utmost care not to let anyone or anything come in contact with
that bag (remember, the sculpture was only plaster). If anything had
happened to this piece of art on the way to its intended new home, I
would have had to leave the country and go into hiding.
On the plane, when all carry-ons had to be placed under the seat for
takeoff, I refused to let go of the Brancusi. I held it like a live
baby. I argued with the attendant until she realized how important this
was to me. I was not about to have a plaster head selling for $50,000
go rolling down an airplane aisle! I held it close to my heart for much
of the trip.

For you curious
modern art lovers...
When I sold that plaster head, I had no idea that the previous year,
this modern Brancusi sold at auction for $27.45 million. Certainly puts
plaster head in perspective, doesn’t it?
The prosperity laws I learned from my modest sale of that unwanted item was more valuable to me than any amount of money.
