Abraham--Setting Your Vibrational Tone

This is GREAT! A little long for my short attention span, but sooooooooo worth it.

Feel GOOD!

Another Abraham-Inspired Video: Go with the Flow!

I love this one.

Abraham-Hicks on Politics and Environment

Here is a clip about using the Law of Attraction with politics. Simply put, do not have a war against the candidate you dislike. Be FOR the candidate you CHOOSE!

Celebration of Results: I feel good.

Today my intention was simple. "Nothing is more important than that I feel good."

But it had profound effect.

I felt good.

And what came from that was:

I felt good.

But also, I found those cool videos I posted
I gained a lot more clients at work
My husband cleaned the heck outta the house
I have been inspired by yet another video
My house has been harmonious
and clean

I am grateful.
I am happy.
I feel good.

Oh, and I quite easily stuck to my eating plan
I'm very very close to 10,000 steps.

It's all been very good.
From a simple idea.

It's been a good day.
Perhaps I'll choose that focus again tomorrow.
At least it will be part of it.
Feel good.

Today, I would like to keep it simple.

Today, a thought from Abraham. A rather important and all-encompassing thought:

"Nothing is more important than that I feel good."

Daily Focus, 9/29/08

This is my daily focus. Feel free to add yours in the comments. Or put it anywhere!

Today will be harmonious and fun.

Zane will be self-sufficient and easy to be around. We will have fun together. We will get things done. Whatever needs to be done. And it will fun. Fun and done.

Kevin will have a good day. He will have what he needs. He is learning how to take care of himself instead of just everyone else. That is good. He is doing great with the being smoke-free. Wahhhooooo. He is successful. He has great energy. He attracts abundance from all over. He makes money all the time, even while he sleeps! That is so cool. I love that.

We are both abundant. We have multiple streams of income, easily managed. We make more money than we spend. We are building wealth. We are millionaires. Our vibrational escrow account is full of gazillions. I know it is. Egad, if I could just remember the pin to that account! LOL. It will show up someday. Most likely soon.

My house is well cared for. We have lots of help. Everywhere I go, the universe supports me. Help is everywhere.

My skills and talents are respected. My needs are taken care of. I can choose to work or not based on whether or not I feel like it. Because the universe takes care of me just because I say so. What was that Jesus said, something about the flowers in the field? Well, that's me. A flower in the field.

I am free. I can do as little or as much as I want. Mostly, I just take care of my vibration. I stay in the flow. Nothing is more important than that I feel good. I feel good every day. The law of attraction takes care of the rest. I don't have do much of anything. When I am inspired to act, I act. And great things happen.

My house is clean and organized. Easily. My life is simple to manage. It is filled with freedom, joy, fun, beauty, peace, harmony, art, relaxation, safe adventures, great travel, wonderful views, amazing people. I spend time with people who inspire me. I have great friends. They are happy and fun, smart and kind. The surprise me in fabulous ways. As does my husband. His potential is boundless. He is realizing it.

My bank account is FULL!

I am healthy. My back and neck feel great. My energy is strong. I am happy. I am at peace. I am amused. I enjoy every moment. I savor life. I am.

Daily Focus, 9/28/08

This is my daily focus. Feel free to add yours in the comments. Or put it anywhere!

Today is a good day!

Today I do what I want when I want. Wahooooo. Today I am having fun.

Whatever I need to do gets done today, easily and joyfully.

My home is harmonious and fun.

We are abundant. We are always making money. Even when we sleep! That is awesome.

I easily make choices that bring me to my best health. My back and neck and are strong and flexible. I can easily perform any household task I choose. Or I can easily get someone else to do it! Mwaaaa ha haaaa. (I'm into faux evil laughter today.)

Kevin is very successful. He is very good at attracting what he wants. He's smart and funny and handsome.

Wouldn't it be nice if we won the lottery this week? Ahhhhh. That would be nice. A bit of a shortcut. I could take that.

My kids are fun to be with. They are helpful. They are good listeners. They get along well. They love to learn. They do funny stuff all the time. Good funny stuff. They understand what real humor is.

My dog is cute.

Manifestory: Luke!

I thought I'd take a moment to tell a quick manifestory.

I very much remember the moment when I started to bring our dog, Luke, into our lives. We stopped at our neighbor's house on the way home from walking to the store. We were new to the neighborhood. We had just met her recently. She was an idyllic picture, in her front yard, doing some gardening.

Just to set the stage a little, she is a beautiful woman, who lives with her family in a house from around 1900. It's very well cared for. They have a gorgeous white picket fence in front, lined with beautiful rose bushes. As she took a break from working in the front yard to chat with us (I could go on and say she was wearing a flowing white dress, but I think it was really a green tanktop, crop jeans and a cowboy hat), her three little dogs are running around, chasing each other. One's a yorkie, another's a yorkie poo (1/2 poodle), and the smallest is the yorkie poo's pup. So cute! As we're admiring the dogs, she just picks one up and hands it to each of us. Yeah, we fell in love that day. With all of them.

Fast forward about 3 months. The yorkie (who had been our favorite) had pups the day after our wedding anniversary. We ended up getting one of them 2 days after Christmas (for a great deal because by now we were all good friends).



He must know I'm talking about him, because he just came and begged me for a treat.

Funny, I just realized, that this past summer, we ended up hosting all the dogs in our front yard quite a few times. So, I had the COMPLETE experience of having not just 2 or 3 little dogs running around in a cute little pack, but all FOUR of them. That was really fun. So, not only did I manifest the dog, but I manifested almost the EXACT scenario (minus the gardening, because really, I'm not into that right now). Interesting. And I wouldn't even have noticed that if I hadn't stopped to write this story. Very interesting.

The treat hound is back on my leg. Gosh. He's so darn CUTE! And smart. He tells us all the time what he wants. Just now, I had to let him upstairs, so he could look out his favorite window.









(I seem to tell longer stories than I plan.)

Now I know that having 4 little dogs in their yard going nuts might not be everyone's idea of fun, but it sure was mine. It was especially fun for my 3 year old, which I loved, too!

And it all goes back to that moment in the driveway of my friend's yard, when I said to myself, "I want that!" And so it is.

Results: Old Navy Save, More Mercury Retro, and Dogs in Sweaters

Ha ha. Gotta love Mercury Retrograde. The funniest things happen during Mercury Retrograde. I was going to call this post "Old Navy Sale" but "Old Navy Save" came out instead. That's fine. The phrase that came to me yesterday was "The Path of Least Resistance." And then, later, as I was reading the below, I actually READ it. Maybe I had been reading it before. Who knows.



So anyway. I am so abundant! I saved $78 at Old Navy yesterday. It was awesome. (The sale is still going on today if you want to check it out.) In stores only. I only bought stuff for Zane (Time was a factor). I should go back for me!

Also, this is another Mercury moment. On Friday, I was balancing my accounts, and it was going pretty well (with a lot of patience), but it wasn't making sense to me why there wasn't as much money in one account as I thought there should be. I'm thinking I have to take out of savings or whatever because we had sort of been splurging. It's fine. And all of a sudden I realize, "DOH! I've been carrying around a check in my wallet for over a week!" So, let it be my intention now that Cafepress starts sending out their money right to our bank. Direct deposit. I would love that. However, it's fun finding money in your wallet, too. So, it's all good. Found money. Love it. I find money all the time. Mwahhh ha haaaa!

And yesterday we got the dog groomed. I don't know why I felt the need to add that to the results except that we love our little dog. And results is really a celebration of all that is right with your manifestations. So, we want to celebrate that. When he gets groomed, it's like we get a new dog, but we still love him. It's so funny. The whole family fawns all over him. He struts around proudly. He's so soft. We resolved yesterday to get him groomed more often. It is better for him and it's so darn fun having such a cute, well-cared for pup.

Here he is, dressed in a sweater, on my favorite kitchen chair. (Love dogs in sweaters.)

Mind Movie du Jour

This is what I'm watching tonight.



The website at the end makes no sense to me. Marketing? I can't say I recommend that part of it. But I like the feel of the rest of the video. Enjoy!

Now I must go to bed. Big, abundant day ahead of me tomorrow.

Coming Soon: Law of Attraction Coaching!

It's true. I've decided to do it. I'm going to offer my services as a law of attraction coach, right here. Online. The complete details are yet to be hammered out, but I hope it to be easy, elegant, accessible, fun, and profitable (in one way or another) for all involved. Wahhhhhhhhhoooooooooooooo. I am going to be making money doing my true passion. I plan to offer the coaching via an IM program (not sure yet which one.) I am so excited. I could have it set up by tomorrow! (We'll see.) Blogging and IMing about manifesting and law of attraction. I think I am in heaven. Welcome!

68 Second Video

I'm diggin' the mind movies these days. But to be honest, I don't have a huge attention span for them. So, I'm liking the ones that are under 2 minutes the best, it seems. Check out this one from 68 Second Video.



Here's the information on why 68 seconds is the goal. I'm quoting from the website, which quotes Abraham-Hicks:



How does this work?

1. Read this quote from Abraham about why taking 68 seconds is important.

"Few humans are aware of their vibrational point of attraction, and few have any awareness of how they are flowing their Energy moment by moment. Instead, most are observing the results of how others have flowed Energy. As they look at the evidence of what they don’t want, they conclude “that is bad” and as they look at the evidence of what they do want they conclude “that is good”. The next logical step to concluding what is “not wanted” is to try to hold it away. To push against it. It is from this perspective that most physical human beings become almost completely dependent upon their action for creating. But action does not create. Your vibrational offering of thought Energy produces the results that you live.

"If you will take the time to line up your Energy, meaning create a vibrational match between your desire and your belief, the Universe will deliver to you amazing circumstances and events toward your physical conclusions. However, if you proceed with action before you have aligned your Energies of belief and desire, there is not enough action in the world to make any real difference.

"We see so many working so very hard, and giving so much time and physical effort without having aligned their own Energies. We encourage you to develop the skill of alignment and you will discover the power of this Universal Energy.

"17 seconds of pure (not contradicted) thought is equivalent to 2000 action hours. 34 seconds of pure thought is equivalent to 20,000 action hours. 51 seconds of pure thought is equivalent to 200,000 action hours. 68 seconds of pure thought is equivalent to over 2,000,000 action hours.

"Once you learn to align with the Energy of you Source you will discover that action is not a key ingredient to the fulfillment of your desires for abundance, success, joy or any other physical fulfillment. Line up your Energy and then follow the inspired action — and you will live happily ever after."

Abraham-Hicks 10/27/96

The Abraham quote above is copywritten by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

You can find out more about Abraham at http://www.abraham-hicks.com.
2. As you focus on a feeling for at least 17 seconds, you begin to create more of the feeling. The Law of Attraction kicks in and starts bringing you more and more of what you are focusing on.
3. When you combine that good feeling with a thought of a specific experience you are wanting to have, then the Law of Attraction kicks in and brings you more and more of both.
4. The better you feel, the less resistance you have to what is so in your experience. This allows you to move out of what is so and into what you want.
5. For a more detailed explanation from Abraham, read this quote.

"With only a few seconds of focusing your attention on a subject, you activate the vibration of that subject within you, and immediately the Law of Attraction begins to respond to that activation. The longer you keep your attention focused on something, the easier it becomes for you to continue to focus upon it because you were attracting, through the Law of Attraction, other thoughts or vibrations that are the essence of the thought you began with.

"Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibrational becomes activated. And now, as that focus become stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, power of the vibration will become further-reaching. And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.

"When you repeatedly return to a pure thought, maintaining it for at least 68 seconds, in a short period of time (hours in some cases or a few days in others), that thought becomes a dominant thought. And once you achieve a dominant thought, you will experience matching manifestations until you change it.

"Remember that:
* The thoughts you think equal your point of attraction.
* You get what you think about, whether you want it or not.
* Your thoughts equal vibration, and that vibration is then answered by the Law of Attraction.
* As your vibration expands and becomes more powerful, it eventually becomes powerful enough for manifestation to occur.
* In other words, what you think (and therefore feel), and what manifests in your experience, is always a vibrational match.

"From Ask and It Is Given, pp.109-10 by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Published by Hay House, Inc. © 2004.

Results

Allrighty. What have I manifested for myself recently?

Yesterday, I had a big day at work. That was good for abundance.

Zane got into preschool. It is free. That's huge. Childcare/school that is teaching him for roughly 9 hours/week. Free. AND he loved it.

Today, I thought I had to pay a bill for about $170 and found out I had already made the final payment. Cha-ching.

Kevin's store. Still rocking.

Ok, I better just quit while I'm ahead on this computer thing. I'm getting some funky results. Typical Mercury Retrograde stuff.

I am a magnet to money!

Mercury Retrgrade Affirmation

Mercury turned retrograde today.

I feel compelled to share this with people. If you're not familiar, check it out here.

Anything starting with re- is generally a good thing to do during Mercury Retro. Read, relax, revise, remember, restore... You get the idea. (I've already re-vised this entry like 3 times!)

Generally, weird things happen that you think could be really bad and take a lot of time and sometimes some money, but usually aren't too serious in the end. Mercury is the trickster.

For example, today already, I dropped my coffee twice in the car on the way to work. It was a bother, but didn't hurt anything and I still had plenty of coffee left (thank goodness for lids)! A co-worker called in with a mysterious illness. She wasn't sure if she could make it in or not. She was trying to get in to the doctor, but didn't know if she could. She got to the doctor and they said they've seen this weird thing (We've seen it on her, too, she's not faking), but they have no idea what it is. She wasn't able to come into work. We had to cover her clients. There was some hustle, but it all worked out. One lady ended up coming in 25 minutes early for her appointment, which was perfect because that was the only time I had available to help her. It all works out.

My favorite watch-words for Mercury retrograde:
Patience
Humor

I decided that humor sounded like more fun.

My affirmation today is:
"Lots of funny things happen during Mercury Retrograde"

I've seen it happen already today. It's been pretty funny. I choose funny! Right as I decided that my affirmation for the day is "Lots of funny things happen during Mercury Retrograde," one co-worker who DID make it in, did the funniest little dance in greeting me. Law of attraction, Baby.

Reminder to Myself

Nothing I want is upstream.

from Abraham

Daily Focus 9/23/08

Today is about going with the flow. And also relaxing into the flow.

From what I see around me today and what I know of astrology, things could be a little intense. That can be good. I can relax into it. I can enjoy the ride.

I'm so happy Zane is getting to go to school. He is very social and very smart and very socially smart. He will do well. He will have fun. He will enjoy it. He will definitely love to go back. It is good for all of us.

My day at work will flow. I will have plenty of help. Everyone will show up at exactly the right time. They will mostly be successful. I will find the words to tell them what they need to hear to get them where they want to go. They will help me be prosperous. All is good.

Kevin will continue to be successful today. He will continue being a nonsmoker! He will continue to find ways to make himself feel better while he is on chantix. He will continue to produce amazing art that supports us financially as well as pleasing himself and those who love his art.

Caspian will have a good day. He is very helpful. He will help Zane to feel at ease. His behavior has been better and better lately. The better it gets the better it gets.

There is harmony in my home. It is safe and secure and beautiful and orderly. It feels good to be here.

I am free. I am creating the life of my dreams. I am already in it. I am making it better and better every day. We are in the process of creating enough abundance so that we are free to do what we want whenever we want. We are free to have what we want whenever we want. We have multiple streams of passive income.

I can relax. I have lots of help. It is good. I am grateful.

Today I will take time to appreciate as much as possible. I will live in joy. I will have fun. It is a great day!

San Diego story in Abraham-Hicks: It's about seeing your results

Ok, I figure it's time to post this story, since I've been alluding to it all month. Honestly, the story came to me right in the beginning, but I thought it would be too long and complicated to post. I now think it will be fine. Interestingly, after posting about San Diego before, I was drawn to open up this book at "random":



I went right to page 230, where it tells the story. It's pretty interesting that I went right to it. (Law of Attraction) I have read at least 4 different Abraham-Hicks books in the past couple months, and watched one of their DVDs. If I had "tried" to find the story, I would have been at a loss as to where to locate it. However, by just relaxing into it, it came right to me.

So anyway, here it is:

"So it's like traveling from Phoenix to San Diego, and San Diego's where you want to be, but for most of the distance of 400 miles, you're not where you want to be. And if it frustrates you that you're not there, vibrationally speaking you would just turn around and go back to Phoenix. You would never get there. But in terms of this physical journey from place to place, you say, 'Well I understand that journey, so I can make that. I can see my progress. I can see that with every mile I stay focused in that direction, that I'm getting farther from where I don't want to be and closer to where I do want to be.'

And we say, so you keep the faith because you have this evidence that shows you you're getting close, you're getting closer, you're getting closer. So (unless you're walking) nobody gets discouraged about that journey. In other words, you hold the faith. You hold the belief. You don't say, 'San Diego is an impossible dream.' You don't say, 'San Diego's incurable --I've tried and tried and tried and tried, and I can't get there,' because you can get there, and you know you can.

When you make the connection that the way you feel is your indicator of the direction that you're moving, and you can honestly say to yourself, 'I do feel optimistic -- when I say, 'All is well," I mean it...I really feel it,' then we say, then you can't not get there. If you can maintain that expectation and that attitude and that vibrational frequency, it has to come -- and it will come fast."


It goes on to say some other really good stuff, but I don't want to overquote. I do suggest you check it out. It's great stuff.

More from Ford

Hmmmmm...Law of Attraction is at work in a way I don't quite understand today. First the cats, now Henry Ford. And the cats took me to Ford. This ad was on the cat page. Check out this trailer for a movie coming out about a man who fought Ford (and won? not sure).

Flash of Genius.

It also reminds me of another situation in my life. A friend who is fighting for her own justice. I guess it all ties in together right now. I guess we just have to keep moving towards San Diego and trust we are going to get there.

Synchronicity is so interesting. I guess it could be seen as mysterious at times (cats). I'm starting to make myself dizzy with this thinking! But it's kinda fun.

Later edit: I just noticed that the director of Flash of Genius is Marc Abraham. THAT'S why the ad appeared next to Abraham cats. Talk about the Law of Attraction. How funny!

At the risk of appearing like a crazy old lady...Abraham Cats

I will post this link to cats illustrating Abraham-Hicks quotes.

(shakes head: I am young. I am cool. Really.) :D

Ok, here are the cats.

(It's all about cats today for me for some reason. Hmmmm.)

Has everyone seen this book:



I love it. We consult it in our house whenever we are seeing a predominant animal theme in our lives. The keynote about cats is "mystery, magic, and independence." It says, among many other things, "anytime a cat becomes predominant, look for magic and mystery to come alive."

Nice.

Another Vid: I Am Grateful (Kinda trippy and cool)

Many teachers believe gratitude is the most important feeling to have, especially for manifesting abundance. Abraham-Hicks focuses more on appreciation, a subtle difference, but one nonetheless. I can feel the difference, can you? Masaru Emoto uses a combination of love and gratitude as one of the most profound energies to transmit/emit.

Gratitude is good, and I dig this video. Check it out.

Kids: Daily Law of Attraction Quote from Abraham Hicks

"Relative to our children or any children with whom we would interact, our one dominant intention would be to give them a conscious understanding of how powerful and important and valuable and perfect they are. Every word that would come out of our mouths would be a word that would be offered with the desire to help this individual know that they are powerful. It would be a word of empowerment. We would set the Tone for upliftment and understand that everything will gravitate to that Tone if we would maintain it consistently."
--- Abraham

Daily Focus 9/19/08 Freeeeeeeeeeeeee

Today I am freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

(Did you catch the feeling in that?)

Yes, I am free. I just realized. I have no plans. I have not thought of a to do list. I am at home. I am freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Ok, I so I guess this is also a result, so I'll label it as such, but it's just so. much. fun. (Is that annoying? Because I'm really into doing that thing with the periods right now.) Well, that's ok. I'm following my impulses and I am freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Heh heh.

Today I will have fun.

Nothing is more important than that I feel good.

I am very very very very abundant.

I enjoy life.

My home is harmonious.

My health is excellent.

My back is feeling better all the time. My body heals itself. I make the exact right choices to speed the healing process for my body.

I easily make the choices that will get me to my goal weight and stay there.

And did I mention...

I am freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I have lots of books right now. Perhaps I will do some reading. I love to read. It's a fabulous Pacific Northwest fall day. Grey, chilly, gloomy. Perfect for reading. Maybe a little XM Cafe or The Mountain. Maybe even some chill music.

I do what I want when I want.

Kevin is very successful. We have multiple streams of income, and they are getting more and more multiple every day. They are multiplying exponentially.

My path is getting clearer all the time.

Kevin just tagged me on his blog, apparently. I'll have to see what that is about.

I am ready for coffee. If I had been thinking, I would have manifested Kevin dropping it off on my desk as he walked by. Oh well, that happened last time. It was so cool. He even chose the kind of creamer I said I was going to have (we had 3 choices at the time.)

I'm sure that blogger will be getting their autosave issue cleared up any minute now. Autosave generally works like a charm.

I am in the flow.

I accomplish anything I need to accomplish with ease and fun.

My home is clean and happy. My home is organized. My home is in the flow. It is easy to flow through my home.

My kids are great. They are very self-sufficient, yet we have wonderful times together. We learn and share together.

My friends are fabulous. We support each other and have fun.

Now it is really time for coffee. And maybe some silly blogging on my other blog? I don't know. It's all whatever my impulses say. And you know why? Because I am freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Manifesting Tool: Mind Movies

Mind movies are a great tool to help aid you in achieving your goals using the Law of Attraction. Basically, anything that's easy, quick, and helps you keep your goals in mind with a positive thought is going to be powerful. If it evokes positive emotion, all the better. The trick is you want to watch it often. You are reprogramming your brain. You are accepting and allowing the things you want in your life. The most powerful kind of mind movie, I think, is the one you make yourself. That's why the people at mind movies are smart in helping others create their own customized version. I haven't taken the time yet to make my own, and I'm not sure I will. I am enjoying using the amazing creations other people have put together on youtube.

Part of the key is that you have to make or find mind movies that you will be willing to watch every day. Multiple times if you can. For me, that means it has to have music I like, attractive design, thoughts I am in line with for myself. And honestly, I tend to watch the short ones more. It must match the vibration of what I'm trying to achieve. This is why I think making your own is the most powerful way to do it. But, if you don't do that, finding other mind movies you like is powerful as well. It's all about focus. Tuning in to the vibration of what you want.

Here's one of my favorite money mind movies:



Here's another one that just gets stuck in my head. It was kind of kooky, so I didn't initially include it in my favorites, or my mind movie playlist. But, you know what? I sought it out today. And it cracks me up. Especially the part where they tell you to insert your name. I admit it. I did it. And it gave me a huge laugh. So, then you are attaching seriously funny, happy emotions to money while you watch it. That's a great way to speed up your manifestations. (Now, if you just sit there thinking, "This is dumb," then that particular movie is probably not a good choice for you.) Have fun with it!



I have some general ones that I really like. Now, here's the catch. These people made these movies for themselves. So, they are manifesting things using their pictures and their goals. For example, one or two of the ones I really like have a lot of pictures of same-sex relationships. Since I'm not trying to create that for myself, I just visualize that everyone has the opportunity to make their own choices. Another one specifically focuses on the creator's husband in one part. I just sorta insert my own images in my mind at that point. And heck, I might send the husband some good vibes, too. Why not? The point is, have fun with it.

Let me include some here that I like.



Same person made this next one.



This one focuses on diet, health, and fitness:


I thought this one was just cool:


So, when I need a little down time, instead of watching TV, I try to go to my youtube playlist and fill my head with the things I choose to create. I'm working on CHOOSING the images that go into my head for the best return. Try it!

Daily Focus 9/18/08

I have what I want when I want.

I do what I want when I want.

I am free.

I am abundant.

I easily make choices that support my weight loss and maintenance goal. My body is lean, strong, and flexible.

I have fun.

Nothing is more important than that I feel good right now.

Lots can happen.

My path is becoming clearer every day. I am currently creating a life where I do whatever I want whenever I want. I have more than enough money to live a life of ease. Money comes to me in many different ways at many different times, even while I sleep. I get unexpected checks in the mail all the time. I receive amazing, wonderful gifts of things I'd love to get from expected and unexpected sources. I have lots of help.

My home is harmonious and peaceful. My relationships are strong and fulfilling. I am teaching my children to use the law of attraction to bring about good in their lives.

My husband is very successful. He is a published author. His talents support us, with multiple streams of neverending passive income, as do mine. By our very nature we are abundant. We are relaxed. We enjoy life.

I always pull the perfect people to me to improve my life. I am the creator of my destiny. It's getting better and better. I am in the process of becoming completely and utterly free. I do what I want when I want. I am free. I am free. I am free. I enjoy every day. I enjoy every moment. I consciously include my abundance in my vibrational bubble all. the. time.

I am easily and comfortably and luxuriously supported by an abundant universe that gives me everything I ask for. I am remember exactly how to ask. I am focusing my immense desires on everything I want. It is coming to me. I am in the process of creating my ideal life. I receive expected and unexpected checks in the mail. I receive automatic deposits into my checking account. More and more all the time. I receive money via pay pal expectedly and unexpectedly. I am open to receiving all the goodness in the universe. I receive with joy and gratitude.

I have lots of help. I have great, creative, fun, smart friends. Everything I need magically appears for me right when I need it.

I believe people want to hear and read what I have to say. I believe I will be compensated for it. Richly. Who I am is of great value. I am given riches for being me.

I follow my impulses. I am in the flow.

And so it is!

Random Thought: Making Decisions and Following Impulses

I remember reading somewhere that successful people decide fast. (Kevin will love this. It drives him nuts how long I stew over decisions.) Successful people decide fast. They don't always make the BEST decision fast, but they just decide. Then they act. They sometimes make mistakes. It's not a big deal. They just move on. They just decide again.

I've been trying to follow that lately. One way I'm following it is by following my impulses. I am noticing that by doing this how often it is my first reaction to squelch my impulses. I am noticing that I actually have enough time to do the things I want to do by just doing them in the moment instead of hemming and hawing forever, wondering if I should or shouldn't. I guess it's the old nike thing. Just do it.

Here's a small example. It's silly really. I have a fragrance pen on my desk. You know, perfume, but it's just a little thing you brush on. I had the impulse this morning to brush some on. My first thought was, "Oh no. It's too early. I'm in my pjs." And then I realized, That's so silly! So I just brushed some on. And I'm enjoying the fragrance all morning.

Similarly yesterday, I wanted to use my most recent favorite mug for coffee. And then I thought, "Oh no, I shouldn't, I'll want to use that later." And then I thought again. How silly. I just used my mug and I was happy.

Just paying attention to those little thoughts and impulses can make a difference in the everyday joy we feel for little reasons. Nothing is more important than that I feel good. I do what I want when I want. I have what I want when I want. I noticed yesterday how I was depriving myself of things I already have and love for NO GOOD REASON! So, having said it before, I'll say it again. I do what I want when I want. I have what I want when I want.

And darn it, I smell good. And I'm about to have some fresh coffee in a big old green mug with a beautiful golden tree on it!

Currently Reading: More on Losier



Here are some things I like about the book so far:
Easy to read

Straightforward

Clear

To the point

Focuses specifically on the two areas that people care about most: Love and Money

Includes a section on teaching Law of Attraction to kids! (love it!)

Includes worksheets, copies of which can also be downloaded online.

Tool #2 in Tools for Including the Vibration of Abundance in Your Vibrational Bubble: "Always say yes to money" p.119 This is a great one. How often do you turn down offers from people who want to treat you to something? Just say "Thank you!" Love it.

Ok, I am about to be abundant in coffee with cinnamon bun creamer. Mmmmm. And must keep reading. Just had to share. I must be having a Mercury transit or something. I can't stop writing today. I have decided to try to write whenever I feel the urge and only when I feel the urge. And to try to get it out when I do.

Keep (deliberately) manifesting, Peeps!

Currently Reading/More Results: Celebrating My Abundance

Currently reading:



I'm reading the above book, trying to determine if taking Losier's Law of Attraction Certified Facilitators Program is the right move for me. I'm putting it out into the universe to make my path clear.

So far, I like the book. He comes from the Abraham Hicks school, so many (if not all) of the ideas presented are familiar to me. However, I love repetition in important things, so that's fine. Anyway, he has a great section on abundance towards the end. He encourages you to celebrate whatever abundance you do have and notice every aspect of abundance that comes into your life.

I have an amazingly abundant life!

We have a great house
We have two great cars
We have all the food we need and then some
We pay all our bills on time every month
We have some nice entertainment items
We have oodles of books

We have a number of sources of income. (I really like that.)

And then, there are some sources of abundance that Losier points out that people might not normally consider. I've received a number of these recently too!

I got a $600 airline ticket for $5 using my airline miles
For the same trip, I was offered free lodging and transportation!
I got the gift of flowers yesterday
I receive advice and coaching free most days at work
I get discounted food all the time
I just received a CD I wanted that cost me $4 including shipping
A spot opened up in a free preschool for which we were on the waitlist

Interestingly, I noticed myself saying to someone today, "No one ever really buys me gifts."

I'm turning that one around! Buy me gifts, universe!

Ok, there's some celebration of my abundance. And this is just financial abundance. Yikes, I am so abundant in love and surrounded by talent. I have oodles of energy, health, friends, and joy. I receive help in many different ways throughout every day.

I am abundant!

Ok, that's how we do a celebrate abundance rampage.

In what ways are you abundant?

Daily Focus 9/17/08

Must be quick today, since I wrote all those other posts!

I am prolific!

Today is a great day.

The beauty of nature surrounds me. I woke to a gorgeous sunrise.

There is harmony in my home. I know I can create this. I am on my way to more and more freedom of all kinds, but especially financial. This freedom comes in a really, happy, wonderful way. I am relaxed because I know it is close. The law of attraction brings it to me. The law of attraction always succeeds. The law of attraction manages it for me. I can relax and have fun. As I allow it is done. I consciously release any resistance to my larger goal of abundance and freedom. It is very exciting.

I am in the flow.

My relationships are great. Close. Fun. Happy. Fulfilling.

Money is all around me, including in my bank accounts!

I do what I want when I want. I have what I want when I want.

So be it.

Recent Results: Abundance and Freedom

Just to do a bit of reporting. Mostly, I'm working on freedom and abundance right now, together. That is the larger focus. The daily focus is a closer view on what I want right NOW.

Yesterday WAS a great day.

My energy was up.
I had fun with coworkers and clients.
Kevin got some great sales in his store.
A client brought me flowers! That was the first time for that, I think.

Another client told me about a possible new job. It sounded interesting and fun and like more money, but probably longer hours, so not in my plan. However, I might still check it out. Just to be asked and find more options and have someone think I'd be good at something is wonderful!

Kevin made one of my favorite dinners.

In general, our financial situation is MUCH better. So, it is all working.

Random Thought: Daily Focus

Feel free to add your daily focus to the comments of my daily focus!

As I'm finding my way on this blog, I think, "Is anyone going to want to read this?"

Of course, that is showing a doubt in the interestingness of my topic and myself. So, I will be working on that. I even considered not writing my daily focus here, but I decided it is too important for me. I am really liking it. It really helps me focus, even if I don't do it every. single. day.

So, for myself, I will keep doing it. I believe people will find it interesting in some way. That way CAN be, as a space to add your focus. So, feel free!

Random Thought

If you try an experiment, like the one I did with Kevin and the kids, you might want to start out doing it alone. I was trying to prove a point to Kevin, which upped the stakes on what kind of results I would get. If I had doubted my results, or failed to believe in the law of attraction, I might have gotten different results. The funny thing about that is, it would still be the law of attraction working. We just wouldn't know it! Happily, I had enough faith and belief that something cool would happen, and so it did.

Manifestory: Experimenting on the Kids

Quick story. (Mostly because I don't remember the exact details.)

One night last week, Kevin and I were sitting on the porch while our kids + 1 were running around our yard. Kevin is a bit stressed and sick these days from quitting smoking. He's getting better every day. But he also was a bit stressed by the way the kids were playing. He was having a really hard time relaxing, and he kept commenting (a nice way to put it) on how stressful it was and how he didn't like the way the kids were playing. It was pretty crazy and annoying for our little after-dinner coffee break on the porch.

So, I said, "Hey, let's do an experiment."

I said some words like, "These are all great kids. They are just having fun. They can do it in a harmonious way. We've seen it happen before. They certainly can play nicely now." I don't know exactly what I said, but it was something we could believe. It was MAGIC. Their energy shifted right before our eyes, they all started playing nicer, and then shortly thereafter, the kid who wasn't ours left. It was very cool.

The end. (for now)

I am free.

I enjoy beauty
freedom
security
fun
abundance
joy
ease
luxury

I am surrounded by all of these.

THANK YOU, Universe.

Today, I will do the Rampage of Appreciation. (Abraham)

Even when I just grab something to eat, because it is quick and easy, I make a healthy choice for myself. It gets me to my health goals AND my weight goal. My body is a temple. It is vibrantly alive. I easily make choices to keep me there and then some.

I am easy with myself. I am relaxed. All good things come to me.

Random Thought

We are all manifesting all the time. The law of attraction is always working. The question is, are we manifesting deliberately or by default? Are we being conscious? Are we being mindful? Are we creating what we would like to have happen? If not, just start now!

How to start?

Pay attention to your thoughts, words, and feelings. Move toward things that feel good to you.

Although I wrote this little thought myself, I feel the need to give credit to Abraham-Hicks here. I've been immersed in their materials these days. I know what I've written sounds like them. I've probably just regurgitated. That's a nice thought. Ha!

Research: Using the Law of Attraction to Win the Lottery

Just on a hunch, I googled "Using the Law of Attraction to Win the Lottery." Verrrry, verrrrry interesting.

I found a number of sites referencing this phrase. I have to be to work at 7:00am today, so I only read the first one right now. It's entitled So You Want to Win the Lottery. I love that there's no judgement on the desire. Just simple instructions on what to do. Perhaps what I love even more is that the author seems to be doing as a career, what I plan for my next career step: Law of Attraction coaching. Oh, I get so excited even just thinking about it. Question is, will I do that if I win the lottery? Who knows. They're both fun to think about.

The author of the above article is Michael Losier, and his website can be found here. Looks interesting. He even has a certified facilitators program. Very, very interesting. Now it's off to the shower for me. Here's another article about winning the lottery (or not, as the case may be, and WHY.) I actually feel like I just DID win the lottery! That's gotta be a good first step.

Go out and manifest (deliberately) my people!

ps--OOOOOH, his training seminar to become a certified law of attraction facilitator is in VANCOUVER!!! I've always wanted to go there. So does Kevin! I am so going there.

Lotto: Sorry Honey, Not Tonight

So, ok, we did not hit the big jackpot tonight. I had some hope. I confess, I did have some doubt about it. Tried not to. Will keep working on it. However, this was interesting. When I looked at the winner list, there was this quote from a $250,000 winner:

$250,000
SCOTT M SMITH
May 20, 2008
Federal Way Region
MEADOW FOOD MART
5320 66TH ST W

“I’ll probably win again,” he says. “If I believe it is going to happen, it will.”

WOW! I love that. He's got it. I'm with Scott. I'm sure I'll win.

Results: Money in the Mail

It's working! Today we got a check for $500 in the mail. It was money that was sorta owed us, but I had pretty much kissed that money goodbye and forgotten all about it. Then it just showed up today. Wooo hoooo. Ok, Mega Millions. I'm ready. Bring it.

Daily Focus 9/12/08

Today I am in the flow.

Today is easy and joyous and fun.

I accomplish what needs to be accomplished.

I feel rested and free. I am abundant. Today I am open to winning 7 million dollars. Would it be nice if I won 7 million dollars? What would I do with 7 million dollars?

I would be free. I do what I want when I want. I would be even more joyous than I am in this moment, which is fairly joyous. I would have more help, more beauty, more fun. I deserve it.

Today I listen to my inner guidance. It takes me to the right places to be abundant, free, and happy. I enjoy life. I am strong and fit. I easily achieve and maintain my goal weight.

My home is harmonious and peaceful. It is a place of relaxation and fun. My home is orderly and joyful. It is easy to find everything here. It feels good to be here. My home has great feng shui.

I can get whatever I want whenever I want. I am totally free. It feels great!

Daily Focus, 9/11/08

To learn more about the following quote as it pertains to me, from Abraham-Hicks' The Law of Attraction in Action, Volume I DVD, go here.

"My audience will summon from me what they want, and I will find the words to help them hear it. They're ready for me, and I'm ready for them. Source has always been ready for all of us. I'll be a conduit through which what they want will flow. I'll find a way of delivering it that they will receive easily."

Abraham goes on to give this advice to the speaker, which I find VERY helpful, about relaxing about whether or not your message is received and/or used:

"They will or they won't right now. If not me, someone else. Don't put pressure on yourself about it or your sense of progress is diminished...Do it for the fun of it."



Today is a great day.

Today I feel good.

My back is strong and healthy, better than yesterday.

All is smooth and easy. I am in the flow. All good things come to me.

Kevin is working through his current physical discomfort. He is smart. He will figure it out. He will get better and better. I see him as the best possible person he can be, healthy and strong, prosperous and happy. His talents and the success that comes from them gives him joy. But mostly, he finds joy in himself and shares it.

Work will go well for me today. I will be relaxed and in the flow. The right people will easily come to me. They will be successful. I will deliver what they want. It will be fun and prosperous. Time will go by quickly.

My family is peaceful, harmonious and fun. Last night was a great example. We all enjoyed each others' company. Caspian is very helpful! The more I see him as helpful, the more helpful he becomes. He loves it. Our relationship is getting better and better. Zane is becoming more helpful, too. Caspian is becoming a valuable teacher and role model for Zane's behavior. It is joyous to watch.

I am getting very close to the free life I am creating. I do what I want when I want. I follow my instincts. I have more than enough time and money to craft my life in whatever way suits me. It is a joyous ride because I know I can have whatever I want. I am almost to San Diego. (Note to readers: San Diego has a lot of meaning for me these days and I may have figured out why -- Abraham uses San Diego in a story about getting to a destination.) I am almost at my destination: a free, abundant, joyous life. I guess when I put it that way, I am there. I do as I choose every day, every minute. I am free to spend my time and money however I choose. I have fun. I spend time with friends and family that I love. We create great experiences. I sleep in whenever I want. I read whenever I want. I watch movies whenever I want. I take trips whenever I want. I decorate my house however I want. It all comes easily and in the flow. I work whenever I want. This may be often or never. Abundance flows to me from all angles. The universe supports me in this decision. I am totally and utterly free and joyous!

Ok, since I'm having fun with this, I will say some more things that I do whenever I want.

I buy gifts for people whenever I want. I donate tons of money to charities that I think are important. I help important causes. My house is orderly, beautiful, and convenient to live in. I get massages, manicures, pedicures and waxing whenever I want. I eat in restaurants whenever I want. I drive whatever I want. I get facials, haircuts, hair coloring whenever I want. I buy toys and clothing for me and my family whenever I want. I teach my children to be powerful, joyous, and free. Everything is getting better and better every day. I go to Milwaukee to spend time with friends and family whenever I want. I go to Seattle and Portland whenever I want. I travel to Canada. I travel to Tahiti. I travel to France and Italy. All Whenever. I. Want. I am totally and utterly free. I get my dog groomed whenever I want. I buy him sweaters whenever I want. I put little bows in his hair whenever I want. Luckily for him, I don't really want to put bows in his hair, but if I wanted, I could. Ha! My house is so clean. Someone joyously cleans it for me. There is a spot for everything in my home and everyone in my home knows those spots and puts things where they belong so that the place is orderly and everything we have is easy to find. Life is easy. Life is fun. Life is exploratory. We have great relationships. We are at peace. We are in joy. We are source energy personified enjoying the ride of our lives, knowing in every minute that whatever we truly desire, it is ours, and so it comes to us and we enjoy it!

I think that's all for now. :)
So be it!

What I'm Watching: Abraham Hicks, The Law of Attraction in Action, I



So this is what I just finished watching. If you are at all drawn to it, I highly recommend it. Someone at Netflix warned that it's just filmed in a hotel. Well, yes, it is. But the production quality is high enough that it didn't bother me.

Let me take just a minute to explain something about Abraham-Hicks, because I don't think I have yet. Abraham is a non-physical group entity which shares blocks of thought with Esther Hicks. Esther Hicks translates the blocks of thought into words and shares them with everyone else. This began a long time ago (over 20 years?), mostly as answers to questions that her very inquisitive husband, Jerry, had. Now, they travel all over the U.S., answering questions for interested parties in seminars. So, it is one of these seminars that is filmed for this DVD and 5 or 6 others in the series. If you specifically want to learn more about Abraham the information they share, go here.

So, this is what is sometimes called "channeled material". Abraham (speaking through Esther) addresses that in the DVD. I cannot remember right now for some reason exactly what they talk about. Mostly, I think, about sharing the information with others, who may have some resistance to the idea of information coming from the "non-physical", as they say. They reference how so many people doing so many different things are channeling every day, including when a sports hero makes a great move. Channeling non-physical energy into the physical. It is so natural, we all do it all the time. But for some reason, in this now-time, people are resistant to KNOWING that they do it. So, anyway, that's what Abraham is.

What else Abraham is, that I LOVE, is hilarious. I think anyone claiming to know anything in the arena of spirituality and LIFE who is not having fun, who is not enjoying the ride, does not really know too much. At least at any rate, it's not someone I want to learn from! So, in addition to being very informative, the Abraham-Hicks books and DVDs are fun.

They have at least 6 different DVDs available right now (and growing, I'm sure) that are similar in this format. This is the first one I've watched, but I definitely want to watch more. I have been looking at them a lot, and they were a series called The Law of Attraction in Attraction. It seems they are changing the titles, just in the past few days. I am really drawn to the former #4, which has been changed to be called "Chill Out!"



Just yesterday, Zane said to me, "Mom, you really need to take a chill pill." I guess I'll take it as a sign from the universe! (Of course, I also told him that I would appreciate him speaking to his dear sweet loving mother in a more respectful way.) Anyway, right after that happened, I saw that Volume IV has a big section on "chilling out", so I was drawn to it. Now, today, I see that they changed the TITLE to "Chill Out". So funny. This is how the universe works. Ya gotta pay attention!

So, anyway, I'm going to move on to my daily focus now, before I move on to my day in physical reality. I'm going to share during the daily focus a quote from the DVD last night. This quote was specifically formulated as an intention for a motivational speaker and is applicable to anyone in a speaking, writing, or teaching situation. (I know that right now my biggest population of readers are writers, so it's appropriate!)

Keep on Manifesting!

Today's Results

I easily accomplish all necessary tasks today.


Funny that I wrote this today. The universe seems to have focused on "necessary". My back got a little re-tweaked today and I ended up spending a good part of today on the couch. However, it is true that my dominant thought these past few days, weeks, etc. is that I need a break. So, I guess I got the "necessary" things done today. I made it to the library before I made it to the couch. I've been reading The I Chong by Tommy Chong today.



A step away from manifestation books, but of interest nonetheless. If I would get away from the computer and use my time to read right now, I'll probably finish the book tonight. Tommy has yet to accept me as his friend on myspace, though. Sniff sniff. I'm sure it's just a matter of time.

Also, Kevin installed our bathroom medicine cabinet today! That is huge. So, good house manifesting. It has been 2 years we've had the darn thing and a hole in the wall and no putting in of the darn thing. I thought maybe he was just responding to our conversation and the blog, but he said, no, he really wanted to do it. Manifesting is cool. The bathroom is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better.

Thanks Kevin! Thanks Universe! Thanks reading.

Now back to Tommy.

Happy Manifesting,

Questions Welcome

Hey all,

I just have been looking at who's visiting this blog and I had my first visit from someone looking for specific information on manifesting in Google! That got me all excited. And thinking, "Well, gee, I hope some of what I rambled will help them."

So, I wanted to let you know that if you have any questions about anything posted here (books, techniques, how it's working for me (or not), how you can better make it work for you, etc.) Feel free to post them in the comments. (And BTW, comments are moderated.)

I'll do my darndest to answer the comments and questions to the best of my ability, and we can open it up to other readers as well, since I don't claim to have all the answers. If it gets to a point where it's too numerous, I'll let you know. Again, I want to make sure it's FUN! I like the idea of this starting to form a community of people helping each other get where we all want to go.

Also, I'm not going to overly manage my reporting on my own results. If I think of it, and have time to post when I think of it, I will try. I can see, I'll be posting fairly often about what I'm creating, but I have a feeling that I might not remember to always come back and say, "Hey, this is what HAPPENED!" So, feel free to ask. That frees me up in having to remember to report back on everything! And I LOVE being free!!!

San Diego - Segment Intending.

I think I'm going to be going to San Diego. It keeps coming up for me in different ways. I don't know how or when or why (although there is a reasonable why right now, not a reasonable how or when). It's very interesting. I don't know what it is. There is something for me in San Diego. Just wanted to get that on record. It's about listening to the messages of the universe. It's been telling me for weeks, "SAN DIEGO!" Egad, it's too scary to think that the message is the reasonable why for going, because like I said, the how and when is NOT reasonable.

Here is a segment intention (Abraham-Hicks): Source, please show me what is up with this San Diego thing. Make it very clear. Make it easy to understand and follow through on. Thank you.

Ok, we'll see where that gets us. ha ha. This is fun.

Daily Focus 9/8/08

Allright. I think I am already going to throw the 5 pillars by the wayside. Ha. I am so powerful. Don't get me wrong. I'm still liking the heart of that idea, that I want to make sure I'm hitting all areas. I'm going to still try to do that, in a way. However, it felt a little too structured for me. Felt like I was trying to fit square pegs into round holes. I want it to be fun. So, I'm going to try a little less structure. Also, not digging my "let's feel good" sign out. Hmmm. Not sure. I'll ruminate on that one.

Ok, here's the focus for today:

I easily accomplish all necessary tasks today. Not only that, it is fun! Our home is beautiful and interesting. Every day it gets more organized and more convenient. Every day we are working towards making it more beautiful. We do this in a way that is comfortable and fun. We are relaxed about it. We enjoy the process. It is easy.

Our finances flow almost effortlessly. We have way more money coming in than we have going out. We are building wealth. Our talents help sustain us, but mostly we just receive as we allow it in. We are abundant by our very nature. As we feel abundant, so we are.

I easily make choices that are healthy for me. I make choices that will help me feel good in my body, have more energy, and look and feel young and sexy. My back is strong. It easily supports my body. I am strong, flexible, and enjoy life in this beautiful body.

I am in the flow. I listen for my inner guidance all day. I practice what I preach. Nothing is more important than that I feel good. I find the good in all situations. I find the good especially in my children and nourish it and help it to grow. My kids are awesome. They are kind and funny and very attractive individuals. They are helpful and fun to be around.

My relationships are very fulfilling. Kevin and I enjoy a loving relationship that is close, intimate, and supportive to each of us as individuals. We bring each other up. We help each other to raise our vibrations. I see him as talented and very helpful. His talents pay off exponentially for all the time we have put in. The money that comes to us will be enough to joyfully live on for the rest of our lives. We do what we want when we want. We have plenty of time together, doing fun things. We are free. We enjoy family time. We enjoy couple time. We enjoy alone time. We learn new things all the time. We love being together. We know best how to support each other and we do those things every day. We have good, close friendships with other people that also bring us up.

Our home radiates peace, beauty, joy, fun, relaxation, and love. All the right people come right to us to help us achieve our home goals in an easy and fun way. Kevin is very good at home-related tasks. He is a huge help to me. It all happens joyfully and effortlessly.

Ok, that's a long focus. So be it. I like it. I guess it's my story.

Mostly, everything I choose manifests for me easily and joyfully. I feel good and have fun in all moments.

This is a good quote from Abraham, "I intend to see, I want to see, I expect to see, no matter who I am working with, no matter where I am, no matter what I am doing. I intend to see that which I want to see."

Main focus: "Nothing is more important than that I feel good." (Abraham-Hicks)

Ok, I can't seem to stop with Abraham. They have an awesome website that includes a quote of the day. (You can subscribe to have them sent to your email daily.) I LOVE this one. It is very appropriate to a big conversation that Kevin and I had last night (about the house--go figure. lol.) So, I dedicate this quote to my sweet, wonderful, sexy husband:

"You cannot continue to beat the drum of things that don't feel good when you beat them—without filling your future experience full of things that don't feel good. At some point, there's going to be a tipping point that's going to become a manifestation.
--- Abraham

Excerpted from the workshop in Philadelphia, PA on Thursday, May 12th, 2005"

And so it is. Thank you!

Another intention

My home is harmonious, peaceful, well-ordered and beautiful!

Daily Focus 9/7/08

Nothing is more important than that I feel good. Today is all about ease for me.

Financial: Money is flowing to me easily and effortlessly. My finances are effortlessly maintained.

Relational: I have harmonious interactions with my family today. I connect with people I cherish in a meaningful way.

Mental: I have plenty of opportunities to read my book today.

Physical: I easily make healthful food choices. I manifest and maintain my ideal weight.

Spiritual: I clearly hear my inner guidance. I am in the flow.

Let's feel good!

Daily Focus Intro

I'm hatching an idea. I just got back from a great coaching session. If my coach had a website, I'd link it, but she doesn't yet. At any rate, I am inspired. I have considered using this space to, as Abraham says, prepave my intentions for the day. Abraham also has a process called Segment Intending, which I find very powerful. In a nutshell, all throughout your day, you go from segment to segment (i.e. getting up, having breakfast, getting ready for work, driving to work, etc. etc). Before each segment, you put forth your intention for that segment. You say, in your mind, or out loud, how you choose for it to go.

I also just finished reading Harmonic Wealth by James Ray.



He talks about the Five Pillars of Wealth, of which I found a nice summary here.

Financial
Relational
Mental
Physical
Spiritual

To be honest, Harmonic Wealth was not my favorite book. I sort of had a love/hate relationship going on with it. I wasn't that into a lot of it, and yet I felt I HAD to keep reading it, that there was something in it for me. Perhaps it is the five pillars.

So, putting together my coaching session from today, Abraham's intending, and the five pillars, I am going to do my best to form an intention for each pillar on a daily basis and call it my Daily Focus. We'll see how it goes. Right off the bat, I'm not going to lie to you. I could end up not doing it daily. I could end up deciding the structure of the 5 pillars is too, well structured. Basically, I want to make sure I am called to do whatever I am doing here. As Abraham says (pardon me, but I'm a little addicted to Abraham lately), "Nothing is more important than that I feel good." So, I'm going to try to stick to that first and foremost. Perhaps it will be my overall intention every day. I like the idea of using the 5 pillars, just so I don't forget an area. To create harmony (as opposed to balance, as Ray describes in his book, which I thought was an interesting distinction.)

So, that's the idea. I think I'll start a new post and do a daily focus. Now that the day is half over. What a rule-breaker I am.

(I feel like I need a sign off. I'm feeling a little bit of Abraham, with a touch of Masaru Emoto might work. Hmmmmmm. Perhaps for now, I'll try...

Let's feel good!

Current Lab: Money & Relationship. Together. A big one.

Ok, here's what I'm working on right now. Mainly, money manifestation. I've been working on this for a while now, and it's getting steadily better and better. Mostly, I'm working on the money manifesting to increase my freedom. I love freedom. Time with my family and friends. Time for myself. Planning and doing fun stuff. Or doing nothing. I love to read. I like cool stuff. These are all the reasons I'm working on my money manifestation. Freedom. Comfort. Beauty.

It's a work in progress.

What have I been doing? The most important thing is to change how you think and feel. You want to put out only thoughts and feelings of abundance. To do that, you must see yourself as abundant. You must feel abundant. You must be abundant to be abundant. Does that make sense? It's why the rich get richer. Here's what I'm doing, technically, to work on the feeling of abundance.

1. Vision board above my desk. If you've been around the law of attraction block, you've heard of these. Simple idea. Gather photos of things you want to draw to you, put them together where you will see them often, look at them. Feel emotion about them. I wonder if I have a pic of my vision board to post. I think I do.


Here's a closeup of the me and Kevin surrounded by money.



2. Mind movies. I'll probably talk more about these later, as a special manifestation tool. You can use other peoples' or make your own. Making your own is probably the most potent, but it can be time consuming. For now, I'm using other folks' mind movies. Here is one of my favorite money ones.



3. Money processes from Abraham-Hicks (more on this later)





4. Paying attention to my thoughts and working to feel abundant in all moments. This is the most important.

Now here's where it gets interesting with the relationship. I realize that I had a long-held belief that I don't need a man to get money. That's a pretty good belief, in general, but I think it's been impacting our earning potential in negative ways.

I was raised to be a self-sufficient woman. I was raised with a strong feeling of self worth because of the time and family that I was born into. I was also good at school. Well, somewhere along the line, I got this romantic notion that love was the most important thing there is. That may be true. But I remember very specifically making a choice that "I don't care if a man makes money or not. I will happily support my man. I need to marry for love. I can make my own money."

In a way, that makes sense. But what I'm realizing is, I've totally created a marriage in which I make all the money and support my man! That has been sorta ok, but not great. And the more he hasn't made any money, the more I've thought about him as a creative type who just doesn't make money. The more I see him that way, the more he sees himself that way. Then he makes less money and I support him more.

Now, we have to be very clear on something. I'm not saying my man is a deadbeat. Quite the opposite. He does many, many things to contribute to our family. His nondeadbeatishness is also one reason why it's been so perplexing as to why he hasn't been bringing in very much money. He made lots of money when I met him. He used to support a whole family. He's very generous. He's always supported people and helped people. He's incredibly talented. In many ways. Marketable ways. But then he got together with me and nada. nyet. zilch.

BECAUSE I HAD A DOMINANT THOUGHT THAT I WOULD MAKE ALL MY OWN MONEY AND DIDN'T NEED ANYTHING FROM A MAN!!!

Wow. It was big to realize this. So, now that we have lived that, and it's been ok, I've decided to create something different. I've decided that it's ok for me to be supported by a man. He can totally support me or we can share in bringing in money. I'm open. Mostly, that's the important thing. I'm open to more money coming to me in whatever way, especially and including through the talents of my talented husband. I'd really like to create a situation in which I take some time off of working for a while. Or perhaps forever even. And just do whatever I want to do whenever. In order to do that, it will really help to believe that he can carry us. I do believe it. That's the first step.

What about results?

Well, in the short time I've been playing with this new notion, Kevin's store has been a lot more successful. I love it.

Also, he just quit smoking a couple days ago. I was a little skeptical. But he's been doing great. (Using Chantix.) He started doing better when I changed my mind about it. Honestly. I was skeptical. Then I realized I was creating a negative thing. Someone knocked me out of it with a strong positive thought. I latched on to the strong positive thought, and now he's doing great. And saving us a lot of money.

Can't wait until the big 6-figure book deal manifests!

We will be going here. (We may not wait for the big deal on that one.)

This is getting fun!

Manifestory: Conversations with God

Hey, I just came up with a new word: manifestory! I had originally entitled this Manifesting Story, but I like my shortened version so much better. That's what I'll be calling them. Manifestories. That's fun. So, without further ado...

The book Conversations with God came to me exactly when I needed it, exactly when I was ready for it, as is the case with anything. It ended up being a huge eye-opener for me, bringing me a lot of joy and information to bring myself to more joy. Basically, it offered a whole new world view that really made sense to me. The author, Neale Donald Walsch, was raised Catholic, like I was. We had come from a similar spiritual tradition and had both decided it wasn't really for us in the long run. However, I don't want to get into too many specifics about the book here. I just loaned out my well-worn, dog-eared, written-in copy to a friend for the first time. That was big for me. I don't know if I've ever loaned it out before. I never wanted to have it that far away from me. That's how much I loved it. But one of the coolest things was how it came to me.

I worked for a somewhat large company at the time. This was sometime in the mid-1990s. I was somewhere in my early to mid-20s. The HR department was having these big contests. You could win all sorts of prizes. Now, I had been raised in the "I never win anything" kind of family. Consequently, I almost never won anything. I looked over the list of prizes for this contest, which I believe was basically a raffle, and I thought, "I don't even WANT any of these prizes." Mostly they were giving away sporting events tickets and things like that. I don't really attend sporting events.

However, at the end of the list there was prize I wanted: a free New York Times Bestseller every month for a year. This was very exciting to me. I love books and I wasn't making a whole lot of money at the time. I very specifically remember a moment that stands still for me. (I see a similar moment in many of my manifestation memories. I'll probably share more.) At that moment, I thought, "That prize is for ME. That prize is MINE. No one deserves or will appreciate that prize more than I will. It is MINE." I had a certainty. I felt a power. And then I didn't win it. Just kidding. (Although I do have some stories like that I can tell.) I DID win it. And then a month or two later, I used that prize to get Conversations with God, which then explained to me how I had manifested it. Cool.
