Meditate and Grow Rich For Life!

If you’re searching for one factor that can alter your life right away, and even Favorably and generously then Meditation is what you want. The extensive collection of meditation rewards can be witnessed from both near and far. You most likely feel tranquil at the moment merely from the idea of meditation, now don’t you? I’m not going to tell you that you don’t have a very good reason to feel peaceful about meditation. It’s been clinically proven that when you take time to reflect during your day, your health has the potential to get better overnight. Let’s talk about the benefits of taking a break during the day to you, in short the gains to your body, mind and spirit are going to be huge. I know you can use a break to catch your breath each day. If you want to get back your day, you can do it! Meditation is for more than simply sitting down and taking a couple deep breaths of air. Meditation is a dynamic bonus, of yoga breathing, focus, rhythmic motion, programming new behavior responses, erasing unwanted emotional patterns, visualization and  the list goes on from there. Meditation can afford you with the time to get your life just the way you want it by at least visualizing what you want while you’re deep in a trance state. Whatever you want to change or improve about your life can be done while you’re deep in a meditation. The speed  you can change your life depends on your efforts to success. The best thing about introspection is that it’s a personal accountability thing. Whatever happens is solely on you and your intention. You get out of meditation whatever you put in.

2012 Food for Thought: On Rising Up~

 

Can you be real if you can’t keep it real with yourself? Can you truly love another until you understand what love is? How many times have you experienced or been the victim of someone telling you lies? How did you feel afterwards? No matter what you can heal from anything if you choose to.

In this world someone has to stand up and be an example of just what love is. If its not you then who will do it. Why should you do it? Because we need you so the rest of the planet will heal. As you and i look around there is danger, hate, ignorance, disrespect, toxins everywhere. But amiss all that, we still live. Its amazing that we still grow and love one another even more by the day. There is nothing to be afraid of in the world. What you attract are your own fears. You can be the best yet this very year if you want to you most certainly can and will do it this very lifetime too. I know someone has hurt you before, by telling you lies, ignoring you and feeding you bullish..but there’s always a bright side to life. Feel the natural magic inside you. You are that indescribable beauty that you see in all the great people that have ever walked the earth. Go forth today and shine brighter than  you ever thought you could. Life is here for you to be an example for someone out there. Make it good! Don’t fall back to the past. You can make this a great life no matter what. If our world is to get better over all. Someone has to make a change. If not you then who will? Bliss to you this glorious 2012.

Shou Wu Chih Chia Pudding and The Breakfast Factor!

Sunlight through trees at dawn
Sunlight through trees at dawn (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I was hungry this morning when i woke up but since I ate most of the food in the house over the course of the past few days… I had to make a quick decision on what I would have for breakfast in spite of having just a few items in around. I just went to the store so I don’t know where the food went. Maybe it was these two cats lol, maybe they went through my food stash while I was working on the computer. Anyway, since I got up feeling all lively since the sun is extra bright today. Oh and the sky is blue too! It’s quite beautiful looking out of the window from where I am in the city. Before meditation I did a quick visual scan of what in the house to eat. At first I didn’t come up with anything, well at least not anything that I actually wanted to eat. Just then, I saw it. As I stood in the middle of the kitchen thinking and looking at my soon to be breakfast I was like ahh yeah I wonder what these flavors would be like together.

There are a lot of people on this planet. There are so many people on the planet that i don’t have an estimate for how many at this time. I know one thing though, most people aren’t eating their breakfast! I know you’re probably laughing but you know its true. You might be one of the many that need to take a step back in the kitchen and eat your breakfast. We all have our preferences when it comes what we feel necessary to include into our day. It doesn’t matter what most people are doing with will either eat breakfast or skip it and wait for their favorite time of the day to eat to come along.

I’m proud to say that I’ve alway enjoyed eating breakfast in the morning and i find that i have the great benefits that we have all heard of in grade school too. You remember the benefits of eating breakfast don’t you? Better thinking power, fast thought processing, more energy etc. From all the years that i have talked to other ‘AM breakfast eaters’ Yea i what we were taught in school to be an absolute truth. Before i give you this mind- blowing recipe! I gotta stress that eating breakfast will only give you as much life, benefit and love as there is already in the food that you are currently eating. As far as love..I’m talking about quality, how your food is  prepared and the portion size too. I wonder what your experience is with this? What’s your take on breakfast? Do you love it or do you leave it alone and how does your body feel over all? Please share your thoughts thanks!

Alright here it is! click here for the recipe!

The Ladies Guide To Dating And Male Interaction: 10 Rules

Relax love ain’t going nowhere.

1. You will lessen your chances to attract and keep a man if you run after men all the time. Ok ladies, yea i know he’s fine..probably super fine. I get that. But give that man some space. Always remember the line from back in the day: If it’s for you it isn’t going anywhere. I’m here to reiterate that to you. There’s a better way than wishing things will blossom with a man by telling him how much you are thinking about him repeatedly, or telling him all your business thinking that you two will form a bond that way. NO NO NO. As a woman who has been on some dates in my lifetime and spoken with hundreds of woman and studied relationships over all. I’m here to tell you personally from a man’s perspective MEN WANT TO BE THE MAN. You gotta allow a man to pursue you. Most men are that way, at least that’s what they tell me. So ladies, put your energy into being receptive to a man getting to know you. Relax and enjoy the process of slow movement. Yes, you can still call the shots overall..Because i’m not talking about having sex with a man to be receptive to him, while you’re getting to know him. Honestly..we will speak more on that one in a few minutes.

You are where it’s at!

2. Your chances of landing a solid, healthy relationship will drop to almost 1% if you are needy and don’t want to be alone. I’ll say it again. Yes the man is shole nuff fine. However it is you I’m concerned about here. Think about your life this way, you were born alone. You should learn the magic art of being happy and content right now. Sure it is easy to do when you have a healthy support system in place. The important thing to know is that, NO man comes along to be your support system. You alone have to learn the art of making that a reality for yourself. Everyone isn’t cut out to be a counselor, coach or consultant. So why would you expect a stranger to provide such services to you, out of the clear blue sky and on top of that…FREE. No honey. I feel you but you have to enjoy the skin you’re in. Think about some of the things you enjoy doing and visualize the joy of doing them with yourself. The world will be much brighter once you take your time and smile about what you have access to. YOU HAVE IT ALL. Look at you:-). Think of it this way, how will a man want to spend time with you, if you don’t want to do the same. There is something magical that happens..i’m here to tell you personally! When you get into what you enjoy, even if it involves helping others in someway..thats even better! The universe shifts to bring you the people who match your frequency energetically. i’m not playing. Work it out and give it a shot. You owe it to you to enjoy life even more. And don’t think about a relationship like that, because your date is waiting for your vibration to raise up and then like a magician, he will certainly show his face.

Slow down, Enjoy.

3. Trust me when i say: Men enjoy a challenge. If you give everything on the first date: is there really an incentive for a man to stay around and get to know more about you? Probably not. Right. So here’s the deal. There are so many other things you and your fine date can get into to with your clothes on. Also it is better to keep all your deep childhood history and past relationship details to yourself. Studies show that a conversation about past relationships and sex both have damaging effects on a future potential relationship between two people. Why is that? Hmm i would say it’s because man want women who are light and joyful. If you share a story where you experience the entire misfortune in your head and you allow him to experience your thoughts and feelings about too much of your life too soon. He may not call back. You want to keep life simple and move on from the past before you decide to move into the hot land of relationships. I’m here to tell you. This will save you so much time and frustration in the future. Take your time. Rock his world with mystery not the heavy baggage.

Real recognizes real.

4. Learn to be yourself, don’t fake it. The truth will always come out. Whoever you are..trust there is someone out there just for you. Sure it might be cute to act like you are someone you are not. The question is, how long will you be able to keep that up. Over time everyone lets their masks fall and people will always know more of what is there. Karma is something. Just be you. If you don’t like who you are. Change it up. Elevate, Get creative and mix it up. We all have work to do. Keep it real and everything will be right!

There are other men out there.

5. Never compromise your standards just to have an attractive man on your tip. You know what I’m talking about. He looks good, smells like paradise but he has no values, no game plan and he wears his draws down to his knees . He told you he was not ever getting married. He said he wants to be single for life. HA! OK. So that’s not your ideal man. You knew it when he started breaking it down to you at lunch or on the corner. You aren’t that damn lonely. This is why its important to learn to love yourself. If you aren’t joyful about your life and who you are. You may fall for anything. You are way too smart to waste your life on people undeserving of your time. The next time you see something or someone who doesn’t fall in line with your Values (if you don’t have some, get some) my advice: KEEP IT MOVING BLISSFULLY…HONEY you don’t have time for that!

Be honest.

6. Listen to your heart..the inner wisdom..if something doesn’t feel right its a good idea to talk about it or move on from it. Here is a good example: You are on a date with a sexy man. He’s charming, sweet and opening up to you. everything goes well until (OH NO HE DIDN’T)… OH YES HE DID: He reaches down and grabs your behind. It’s the first date. You are looking like? ‘Uh i’m not feeling that.’ At that point you have a couple of choices on how to deal with it. First of all, stay calm. There’s no need to act up. Let’s not put too much energy into this. Instead, feel your inner wisdom and if you know whatever this man did is outside of your (VALUES) then you can say peace..thank you for the nice time and say i have to go now, and talk to him later about it or never again. Its best not to get into it while on the date as it will leave a staleness in the air. When the date is over you can politely tell him If you are planning on going out with him..let him know who you are and what your values are. Keep it brief. If he wants to really get to know you. He will totally understand. And if he doesn’t its just the opposite and that’s quite alright too. You have absolutely nothing to lose but foolishness. So smile and be proud of yourself for whatever decision you make. You will be glad you did. You know it too.

Is he into you?

7. If men don’t call you, they are just not interested! I’ve been there, you’ve been there. Waiting by the phone for a phone call. Excuse me, i know some of you haven’t had that experience since home phones were hot. There are so many reasons to call you right? RIGHT! so if you hear a man telling you all this sweet stuff. But, he never gets around to calling you, EVER. He’s not that into you. Period. There is no other way to interpret this thing. We all know it takes communication of some sort to get to know someone on any level. We all can agree that relationships don’t just happen by accident. They certainly don’t. So if he is across the world, there is a way to contact you, If he is working late, he can call you, if its been a month and he hasn’t called… fill in the blank again with the same words (he’s not that into you) If you think you should chase a man down to get his attention. Uhh please re-read the rules from the top down. If you don’t trust this. Just try it and find out. Better yet. Just take my word for it and call it a day. Go do your toes or watch a movie. But don’t sit around waiting in vain. If you are just friends that all it is.

You set the pace

8. Men like to take their time too, even though it may not seem like it to you. Some women move too fast for even men. I’m talking about men that want to be in a relationship or married with a family one day. Back to the loose women, Yeah i know we’re not talking about you here. However some women have this idea of covering up the pain they have inside by repeating their mistakes over and over with men who either don’t want them in any other way but sexually or they throw themselves at men that are already spoken for. You deserve better and they deserve better. If only you knew how Karma works is all I’ll say. Sistahs it’s not worth it. He damn sure ain’t worth it. And the entire situation is a waste of energy to top it all. Nothing good can ever come of it. There are men who say they want to take their time. Some men have told me that women never make them wait for even 6 months before they sleep with them. They even said they would love to have a woman who would make them wait. Of course that’s some men. But trust me ladies its more men that want us to make them wait than the other way around. And women don’t know the power they have. If you have read all the rules until this point you know the ball is in your court. All I’ll say here is get some values my sistahs. Enjoy the little things. It’s not too late to make a change either.

Law of Attraction and you.

9. You attract men on the same vibration that you are on. Don’t be mad at this one simply change you and you will see a whole new model in your life of friends and of course in the men you attract. This one is a no-brainer..its all about the Law of Attraction. It’s not personal. When you learn to love you, the world will too.

Allow room for growth to take place.

10. Don’t Expect a man to change unless you want him to resent you. Bossing a man around is not the way into his heart. That’s right. Last time i checked, resentment was not one of the elements of a happy healthy relationship. If you want to build a solid relationship with your potential lover, you have to allow him to make mistakes and allow him to learn from them. We as woman are allowed that luxury so we owe it to the men to give them the same love and respect. We are all on earth to learn the lessons of life. Most people had a personality and a life before they ever met us. We have to remember that and celebrate who they are. Of course foolishness and unhealthy behavior should be talked about but choose your talks wisely. You don’t want to create a problem where there is none. And some comments/ perceptions/ observations should be reflected (within us) before they should be considered conversation worthy. Sometimes we as women feel we should protect our interests in every possible way so no one can take advantage of us. This is why sometimes some women make a fuss when there is none. In-fact the only issue sometimes is the thoughts. Learn to visualize peaceful things and love. See your mate healed and being all that you know they are holistically. Your visualizations will help to bring out the good in them. Use your powerful imagination ladies to bring about change in you and in your families. Indeed our greatest strength is within.

Consulting/ Coaching 101: Succeed With Planning & Structure

Consulting/ Coaching work is a very important  job for those who choose to do it.

Anytime you enjoy what you do a job can be equally rewarding in several ways. Connecting with a new client is always a treat. However, it’s important to communicate exactly what your parameters are before taking on a new client. Oh you could create a losing situation for your business and the client.

There are a few key points to include in your terms of service document before you take a new client in. Sure you want a new client but you can save time on the front end by laying your rules and expectations on the table.

I completely understand.. You think if you can just get a new client everything will work out perfectly right. Sure it will. Think about the last time you had a client right. Now, You get a new client, at first meeting every interaction is flowing and well, right! So then after about a week or less, your new client becomes unresponsive to you and stops keeping their appointments with you. You have no idea as to why. But that’s all you have to off of is their behavior. Well there are preventive measures you can put in place to keep situations like this to a minimum.

This is an example of why, PRE-QUALIFICATION is Very necessary. Some folks may not follow through with much of anything in life. Of course we are visualizing all clients doing everything it takes to stay focused and following through as well. Great let’s keep a positive outlook! Now..

It’s important to find out who your prime time clients are. Who can you best assist? Your ideal client may think like you, or they may be just the opposite of you.  Here are some ideas to get you going. Before we get to number 1 on the list let’s start with the pre-qualification process. Yes, there is a match for all clients and a match for all coaches/consultants. First of all, Type up a document detailing what your ideal client is, here is an example:

You’re my ideal kind of client if you:

Take personal responsibility for your life experience

Want to live mind fully with greater meaning and purpose

Desire to serve and be as productive as possible at any age

Are open to letting go of unneeded baggage

Feel inspired by co-creative ventures with like-minded people

Have the ability (even if it’s not showing now) to be focused on tasks

Are ready to improve your present and future

Are not afraid of money

Hold high ethical values

Are not afraid of people

Enjoy brain storming

Seek open feed back and are open-minded

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. Make a list you and potential clients will discuss (assessment, requirements) before you will work with them. Save the list. This list will be part of your consulting program.

2. Write down what you expect from your ideal client during each session.

3. Make a record of how important is your time is? Put a dollar number on that, make it a 30 day paycheck in fact. Make a note of it for you. How much would you get paid if you worked with a client for 30 days. What’s your time worth? This is an important step so if you the (consultant/coach) will know just how important your time is. Remember structure is the key to enjoying a successful consulting practice. If you don’t organize, you might lose clients, time and money.

4. Begin a document with a list of what a client should expect from you. What can you offer them in the form of services for their hard-earned money? For example:

As Your Consultant My Job Is To:

  • Model mindfulness, learning and growth
  • Listen with focus and presence
  • Maintain self-awareness
  • Nurture the partnership with respect and compassion
  • Establish and honor an explicit structure for the
coaching relationship
  • Make choices with you about the coaching
process
  • Ask questions that deepen your understanding
of your situation
  • Help you articulate desired outcomes
  • Ask you to generate a course of action
  • Provide direct and honest feedback
  • Direct your attention toward your capabilities and potential
  • Provide important information, tools, and language
  • Energize and stimulate your thinking process
  • Remind you of your potential and vision
  • Encourage you to take action
  • Offer opinions and/or recommend a course of action
  • Provide an open space for communication

5. Write an affirmation that goes something like this..(by the way) this is specifically for you (the consultant) ! OK here it is:

I am an amazing consultant, i do my best each and every time with every client. I am here to listen and offer solutions! I strive to direct the client into the direction that will give them the results they spoke of during our first meeting.  Together we can make a change. I am thankful for the opportunity to help someone again with building an awesome business, relationship and overall life! Repeat this affirmation before and after working with your clients.

6. Clients will take you seriously when you take your business and time seriously. Create solutions and plan options to compliment your time and your potential clients time as well and feel good about your choices, you can edit your program at anytime.

7. Detail your program process, include the abc’s of your consulting game plan and type it up in a document. For example:

What to Expect from  Coaching/ Consulting-

Consulting is fully customized to your needs and goals. However, here is an example of what you can expect:

~ Explore and discover what you want in your life, while also acknowledging that what you ultimately want is Bliss.

~ Learn to manage your body & mind, responses to others and life, health and well-being.

~ Brainstorm, rejuvenate, create, meet your goals, build, explore, enjoy adventure, play and then..

~ Transform, relax and experience Bliss Returned.

Another example:

The overall benefit of a consultant is to help you explore who you are, what you truly want and how to attain it. This is achieved as you and the consultant communicate through skillful questioning, listening, reflecting, clarification and suggestions.

8. Don’t beat yourself or your staff up if a client doesn’t follow through. Consulting takes at least two people. Often people will say they want to change, however they may decide during your program, to not elevate for a while. Client fall backs are not your fault. Smile and know one thing:  If the structure of your coaching/consulting program is tight, you have done your job there. The other part is keeping appointments and holding people accountable or what they say they want to do. I know you can do that. You have it going on there. I know that! This process will be  ( or is)  a breeze for you.  This is YOU we are talking about here. RiGHT!

So, go forth and Make it happen. There is no room to doubt your process or your skills. If you have questions or concerns please reach out to me. I can help. I love what I do and I do it well! Enjoy the planning process of your consulting practice. You have exactly what it takes to win. WORK IT!

Rules for Illness – What You Need to Know If You are Ill

by Ellen A Mogensen, Past & Now Forward Holistic Counseling

For Those in Illness

Just in case you wondered if there are rules for illness there are…

The truth is the illness rules listed below operate very impersonally just like any other physical phenomena.

Follow these rules and you will heal. For these rules will put you on the road to recovery. Ignore them and you will continue to be ill.

No one is free from them ever. So either you decide to work with these illness rules or you will constantly bang into them.

The choice is yours.

1> ILLNESS ALWAYS HAS A PURPOSE – IT IS ALWAYS PERSONAL

The first thing anyone asks once they have contracted a serious illness is “Why me?” The question gets asked without the person expecting the answer. Yet there is an answer and it is “you agreed to it in advance for your own growth”. This is directly contrary to the strongly held societal belief that illness is something that “happens to us”, that somehow it is outside ourselves.

The truth is that your illness has everything to do with you. Your illness has been directed at you by spirit. Usually you agreed to it before you incarnated here. Or more often you contracted it while you were “down here” because you strayed from your path. Your illness is meant to propel you on a journey of self-discovery. If you cannot accept this, then your illness will be harder than it has to be.

2> ILLNESS REFLECTS A STATE OF DIS-EASE WITH YOUR LIFE

If you have ever noticed that most people seem to be in a perpetual state of complaining about their lives, it is because they have “forgotten” why they are here. People are here on Earth to learn lessons and, in general, have chosen to accept experiences that are harder than they can handle – hence the complaints.

This usually manifests as a profound state of dis-ease with their life. This feeling of dis-ease, if deep and long standing, manifests as illness. Thoroughly joyful, ecstatic people are usually in great health. If they do have serious illness, it is because they have chosen it at the level of spirit to advance their learning (and they know it!).

3> ILLNESS=IMBALANCES IN GIVING/RECEIVING LOVE

When we are babies, most of us are bathed in love. Babies are totally focused on getting and giving love every moment of every day. Often, they get touched, hugged, and kissed more as babies than they will for the rest of their lives. In return, babies are absolutely not afraid to give love or to get it.

As we grow older, we are taught to fear getting or giving love. Love becomes associated with pain and we narrow the circle of those we allow to come close enough to us to exchange love. Yet love is as important to our health as the air we breathe or the food we eat. When we are chronically unable to give or receive love, the lack of this vital nutrient always manifests as illness in our bodies or minds.

4> ILLNESS=LACK OF/DERAILING LIFE’S PURPOSE & MEANING

Even when we are receiving and giving our minimum daily requirement of love, we still can be starved for another vital nutrient. This is the inherent need in each one of us to find purpose and meaning in our lives.

At some point as we grow older, we must ask ourselves: “Am I leading the life I want to lead?” and “Am I the person that I want to be?” If the answers to these two questions are “No”, this never fails to induce a profound state of dis-ease in our lives. Either we take the action that is needed to turn those “No-s” into “Yes-es” or illness will manifest in our bodies-minds.

5> ILLNESS=RESULT OF HOW YOU HAVE LIVED YOUR LIFE

It is amazing how readily when can accept that this is true for other people and not for ourselves. It makes sense to us that women we know, who cannot accept their femininity, contract breast and/or ovarian cancer or that men who, struggle with their masculinity, contract prostate cancer. Or that those who have been inflexible all their lives manifest the rigidity in their bodies as arthritis. Or that those who have difficulty speaking up for themselves end up with throat cancer.

Yet, we all have a blind spot when it comes to ourselves that keeps us from seeing how our conduct is helping or harming our overall health. The truth is “the fault lies not in our stars, but in ourselves…”

6> ILLNESS=CHRONIC PATTERNS OF SPEAKING & THINKING

Everything you think and speak, in essence, is a command to the universe. So if you are always thinking and saying “I’m tired”, then you should not be surprised when you always are. Of if you are always thinking and saying “I’m going to die before my time”, then you will. So watch your thoughts and your words for these are your spiritual commands that will manifest in your body-mind.

7> ILLNESSES ORIGINATE AND HEAL IN YOUR ENERGY FIELD

Unless you are on the brink of death, before you seek a cure by chopping (major surgery), burning (laser/radiation), or poisoning (hard “drugs”) your body or mind, first give peace a chance. You owe it to yourself to seek cures that work with your body and mind instead of against them.

Do energy work, meditation, visualization – anything you can – to avoid the drastic measures that chopping, burning, and poisoning present. Since you are all energy, the problem and the solution healing to your illness begin and end in your energy field. For more, see the “Rules for Healing“!

8> ILLNESS CURED BY ACCEPTING & MASTERING IT’S LESSONS

If you are looking for a miracle cure, here it is: “Choose to love at every moment: forgive everyone, everything.” This magic cure will speed you through whatever lessons you have to learn. When you have learned your lessons, the clouds of illness hanging over you will magically part – with one important exception. That is where death has been deemed as the ONLY way for you to learn. Yet we are all creators here so anything is possible. See the “Rules #1 for Being Human”…

9> MORE SERIOUS THE ILLNESS=GREATER NEED FOR CHANGE

In the spirit worlds, those on the Earth plane with serious illnesses are called butterflies. This is because illness has put them into a cocoon of survival. To keep on living, the “butterfly” must struggle and force it’s way out of the cocoon by learning the lessons that life has to teach. The more serious the illness, the greater the need to change ways of life that no longer serve the individual.

10> ILLNESS STAYS WITH YOU IF YOU IGNORE IT’S LESSONS

Illness used to be the greatest excuse in my arsenal for not living. As long as I ignored it, illness clung to me. Once I “listened” to it, my illness fell away. So no excuses: just choose to live!!! For more, see the “Rules for Recovery”!

11> IGNORANCE OF ILLNESS FEEDS IT’S POWER OVER YOU

The saying the “ignorance of the law is no excuse” is never more true than when it comes to illness. Illnesses run like trains on a predefined track with predetermined timetables. While you choose to ignore the illness, it keeps going, chugging on schedule down the track. Ignoring it never stops the illness train. What stops it is a conscious desire on your part to switch to a safer length of track.

12> ONLY YOU CAN REALLY KNOW YOUR ILLNESS

You are the only one who lives inside your skin: 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. When it comes to diagnosing and treating your condition, the difference between you and your doctor/healer is that they have read more books than you have and they have more practical experience with healing dis-eases than you have.

When it comes to caring about and understanding your condition, never forget that only you really care and only you really understand because only you are living with it. You can always learn more about your condition but your doctor can never live inside your skin. So until they do, you will always know best. So listen to the doctor but be sure to follow your heart and your gut.

Are You Attracting? Ask The Million Dollar Question!!

Are Your Money, Resources and Opportunities Vanishing?

What are you thinking and saying daily that has shaped  your life into its current state? Are you living in a situation  you do not want to be in? If yes, you can make a change now!  Since words and thoughts have as much  power as we give them.  Thoughts and words are energy  just as everything else is. Make a point to honestly observe  the words you say. Are you saying words like: you hope so and so does not happen like this or that or  I do not like this and I will not stand for that? Whatever you pour into the universe is what you get. Look no further than your thoughts.

Oftentimes, when you get on the phone or meet with a friend or family member. You may also have a tendency to talk about the elements of your most unwanted situation multiple times, and with great passion. If that’s not enough to un-manifest,  you speak about stuff you don’t want. To top it off you describe every detail too. If you think back you may notice how you  even repeat the words too. And passionately as well!  This is a simple example of how you attract what you  do not want.

If your conversations were focused on the details of what you Want, you would send positive  energy into to the universe as you chat about anything. If you look at your life now and ask yourself, what do you see the most of in your life? Is it what you want or the opposite? Just to be sure of what you are manifesting, ask yourself a couple of questions for clarity.

One question to ask is: what do I talk about the most? No matter what your answer is, It was those thoughts and feelings that attracted your current situation to you. Are you now ready to do something different? If so, you came to the Right place. In this space we only energize the things we want.

You must understand that its OK to feel a little funny when you notice the patterns in your life. if you are attracting what you do not want especially. Who knew thoughts and words were so deep? Now you do! Now you can do something about it.You are not alone in this. However it is important to make a change once you see the patterns in your life for what they are. Do better each and every time. You have the power to choose to do that. Consider this your wake up call to empowerment. Challenges are simply lessons to measure your personal growth, success and overall well-being.

A client called me with a story about how they were seeing all the things in their life that they did not want to see? They said it was as if the universe had targeted them personally and wanted to punish them for something by adding all kinds of disharmony to their life, I assured them that they were not alone with this level of concern. But the question and the answer to that question came so easy.  Next, the client answered the million dollar question which was: What do you talk about the most?

The client said “I say I don’t want a married man trying to date me!”,  Then she said, “Alright what is it that I am doing”. I replied, How often do you say those words?” The client did not wait to answer. She said “yes I say that all the time. Because I just do not want it.” Then, she got silent. Immediately she saw the pattern of like attracts like in her life (code name) for #Law Of Attraction.  Now,  she knew once and for all that it was her words and thoughts and she had  personal control over the process.

Ask yourself the million dollar question. And take a good look at your actions. Write down what you see. Then if you do not like what you have attracted. Throw it back and Re-write it baby!

Law Of Attraction Testimonials

Comment: Don’t sleep on vision boards…they work! 

Response: SO TRUE!!! I made a vision board last year and half of the things I put my mind to or on the board happened for me!!! In a matter of months! Whatever you put into the universe will definitely come back to you! :-) Making a new one for 2012!

This is something that I used to do..when I first found out about law of attraction. On one side of the paper I would say I wanted something… An example of something that I said that worked. I said Universe I want a part time job that doesn’t have me working on the weekends that is in my field( early childhood education), and is near all the bus lines or something better now. On the other sideof it I wrote I work part time with no weekends in my field and all the bus lines go past my job or something better now. So I wrote it in present tense like yes I have it but allowing the universe to give me extra by putting “or something better now” I ended up getting a job that was downtown working with abused children…worked part time no weekends..not even on Fridays and all the bus lines went into that area ♥

Kind of a testimonial.. one day I was walking home from school (in college) and I said money is really needed money is rightfully mine, money come at the present time, money must come for my problems and troubles to cease money must come for my mind to be at peace. No faster than I finished saying that..this guy comes out of nowhere and damn near runs me over with his bike.. and as I look down..20 dollars appeared!

wow…it’s a long story but here goes…I have had “stinkin thinkin” in regards to my relationship, my children, my career, money, my appearance etc….I got depressed and discouraged….THEN…I really made a point to intentionally think on good things, what I wanted and NOT what I thought I had…this group has been a BLESSING!!!! So I “focused” and began to read the various posts and affirmations, I would write down what I want on index cards a carry them even to bed and the shower. I also said how grateful I am for having these things…I started to youtube some of Abraham Hicks videos etc etc. because I hit a major inspirational roadblock in my relationship. My significant other and I had been very disconnected and I felt like because this is an area that has always derailed me in the past I would “focus” on it. Nothing changed…it got worse. Then I asked for the air to just be cleared and I was even willing to move out. Yesterday I guess a friend of mine sensed something was wrong and asked if she should come over for a “pow-wow”…she did…we came to the conclusion that I need to be loving ME how I desire to be loved. I need to focus on what I want and even make a short/longterm goal list. As we were talking, my BF interjected (which is NOT like him) and for the next four hours she mediated a “relationsip cleansing session”…now what does that have to do with my career? Well his biggest issue with me was a financial one…he wants to see me doing well and being prosperous and making ME happy because he feels that I have lost my FOCUS etc. etc….(among other things) So I made my list and exactly what i want and I have gotten calls all day for business (I am a licensed Nail Technician with a mobile nailcare service)…I feel like my emotional cleansing…re-focusing…support

of you all (whether you knew it or not)… the law of attraction – my purposeful thinking and visualization and everything else has unblocked my ability to manifest the goodness I was desiring…and the funny thing is that this is all very new to me and I don’t know if I understand it completely…but it’s changing my life… – blessings and thank you for listening! ♥

So today I’m on the bus wet angry and smushed (the early bus never came the I was on was way beyond capacity..) I’m thinking of all the reasons Im mad and feeling self righteous in my anger..then I thought why not think of things that are positive and what you want.. So I get to work and the line to get in.the building is almost out the door…so now I’m late..LOL…I’m not a patient person..so now I’m..surprisingly calm…I figure this must be an exercise in teaching me peace and patience. When I thought about what I could focus on to be positive I thought of this group..thank you, you.guys are rubbing off on me.

I was meaning to share this sooner. Many more great things have happened since, but here’s an except that’s ready to go.

I was getting ready to head out and start my day. After careful deliberation of what to eat, and going with the better choice of fruit, nuts, water and green tea as opposed to a pattie from the caribbean store I walked to the light rail. I left my home feeling and looking my best, asking God to fill me where I feel empty and show me the way.

There was a lady who had a pleasant spirit and we struck up a conversation about her stray cats that she feeds. When I asked her if she was as kind to people as she was to her cats, she said yes and I believed her. She was such a giver, she even gave her drugs away when she was an addict…15yrs in recovery now.

She said I looked like I did really good, kind unique things and asked what I did and I didn’t really know what to say because my life is in a transitional space. I now where I’m going, but the intermediate path has been very blurry.

On the train, out of no where..she told me she saw me making genius sculptures, and I had on the beautiful funky african clothes with long locks doing good things in the world.

This is exactly how I see myself in the future, and a year ago a friend gave me a intuitive reading saying the same thing.

So this must be Gods way of telling me I’m on track.

The LOA works. I made a decision, before I started focusing on some particular thing that I wanted to manifest in my life, that I was gonna just become acclimated to the idea of universal abundance. I began by repeating certain affirmations (some from a LOA group) that helped to attune me to a higher frequency. I practiced (and still practice) being aware of my thoughts and emotions because I feel that needed to be mastered to some degree so I will be prepared for my desires manifesting. It has been a few months of concerted effort, but it’s beginning to pay off. My son’s father, who owes about $20,000 in child support arrears, began paying again. I’m in the process of writing my next book. Yes, I said next. I’m a published author, but that book was written by a woman who lacked the confidence to even promote her own book. To make a really long story really short, I am thankful that my journey brought me to this place. From here, the Universe is the limit… which is limitless… so… yeah… :)
