Breaking the Seal: Inspired Action

I figured if I didn't just go ahead and write a blog post, I might never do it again. Well, I suppose that is unlikely. However, I have been trying to use the Law of Attraction principle of aligning, getting inspired, and then taking action. I had not been feeling inspired to take action. I need to reconcile that with the desire to keep this blog updated on a regular basis.

Also, there has been a lot going on astrologically that has led me to feel very inward. So, I have gone with that. Following the energies. How about you? One of the more basic things seems to have just been the sun in Scorpio. Last night, the sun moved into Sagittarius, and I feel more inspired. I guess I felt inspired sometimes in the past month and a half. But I would get ideas, and then not have the time or inclination to push them this far out into the world.

I have also been considering some shifts in this site. (Some of them being, Manifest Laboratory: Now with more swearing and drinking!) I have been trying to figure out ways to make that happen. (Well, I can figure out the swearing and drinking. I am more thinking about my own domain and a redesign.) I have been ruminating on all of this. And stewing in Plutonic (Scorpio) juices. Perhaps I am pushing out again. Not to mention all the crazy, wonderful, but time-consuming stuff that has been going on with my husband Kevin's writing career. Lots of energy there. (Plan to write more on that later.) At any rate, I am here. That is a start. We'll see where it takes us.

You can also follow me on Facebook or Twitter. (My Facebook automatically feeds to my Twitter.) I tend to throw a lot of things up on Facebook b/c I'm a Facebook geek and I'm there most of the time anyway. That is a good place to check in if I ignore the blog for too long.

It's all a work in progress. Or, as Neale Donald Walsch might say, "We're making it all up." Good thing this is a laboratory! A friend today said that I am the intersection of motivation and relaxation. I rather liked that. Seems like inspired action.

Thanks for reading.

Dream Achievement


Sometimes it makes sense to just sit back and enjoy the wonderful things you've created. That's how I'm feeling in this moment. Big things have been happening in our lives. I have not been talking about them that much. I've been feeling a little more silent. (Keep meaning to write a post on silence, but it doesn't seem to come out! Ha!)

I just celebrated my seventh wedding anniversary. For some reason, seven seems like a big number. It seems much bigger than six. It seems like a relatively long time to be married. (I know, not long compared to some, but yes long compared to others. It's all relative.) Other than this one, the longest I've been in a relationship with one person was a year. So, seven years of marriage, plus two years of living in sin is pretty impressive.

We are living in the house of our dreams. (It is a work in progress, but still.) We have two wonderful children. We have a cute little dog. We have come pretty far in nine years. I feel, "Aaaaaahhhhhh."

One of our biggest accomplishments is that my husband, Kevin, is now a published writer. It's taken years of hard work. I suppose it didn't have to, if we'd just gotten our thoughts together sooner. But it's been a hill to climb, and we are climbing it together. Oddly, I feel pretty accomplished for his accomplishment. Is this what marriage is about? It feels good.

I guess this is all a reminder to stop and take time to look around you. I imagine you have created a life with wonderful dreams which came true as well. You may not have everything you think you've ever wanted, but the most you notice all the wonders you do have, the more wondrousness you will attract.

The biggest ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh of today is that Kevin's book came out on Amazon today (or yesterday? We're not sure!) This is it. This feels like the big time. This is where we's all happening. It's really just the beginning for him. I feel sometimes like he's been interviewing for this job for seven years and now he just got it. Now he's got it and we're starting from the ground up. But I have faith. We're working from the inside out. We're working on feeling good. We are rendezvousing with an amazing group of people. It's been a fabulous ride and I truly believe it is just going to get fabulouser and fabulouser. (Yes, I'm making up a lot of words this post. I guess that's what happens when I don't write for a while...I forget how!)

So, if you've made it this far in this post, thank you! If you'd like to read Kevin's post on Dream Achievement today, click here. (I lifted the title from him.) If you'd like to check out his book on Amazon (I still can't believe it!), click the photo of the cover below. (Or here.)

And remember to appreciate your ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh moments. (We've also been saying EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! a lot. That's fun too.)

The Optimist Creed by Christian Larson

This was inspiring to me today, so I thought I'd share it. I've read this before, but came upon it today in Joe Vitale's free ebook Attract Money Now.

The Optimist Creed was first published by Christian Larson in 1912. It was adopted (in a shortened version) by Optimist International in 1922.

The Optimist Creed

Promise Yourself…

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Celebration of Results: ROTTEN LITTLE ANIMALS

This post is only slight off topic, but like the good English major I was, I can make anything work.

Kevin Shamel's fabulous new book, ROTTEN LITTLE ANIMALS, is coming out in the end of October.

Click here to learn more about it and call dibs on your signed copy today!

Ok, so that was a bit of a commercial, but here's how it ties in to manifesting. That's my husband's book! And we've been working together for years on his writing career. It's all happening. Of course, he's been working at it a long time (and is incredibly talented if I do say so myself). But the real results began to come when we had some breakthroughs this spring around our thought processes. We really began to practice seeing, thinking, and feeling successful and happy. Now, it still required the work to be done, but it was then much more joyful, productive work. And now there's a book! So exciting.

If you like bizarre fiction at all, check it out!

Mercury Retrograde Re-Run

In honor of Mercury Retrograde (and the insane amount of things I have to do around my house currently), I'm rerunning a post I made about Mercury Retrograde last year. Enjoy!

From September 24, 2008:

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:

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.

Friday, September 4, 2009


I guess the title of this is a throwback to sometime in my youth (the 80s?) when we added "city" to things a lot. At any rate, has anyone else been noticing a lot of intensity lately? I know some of the astrological configurations that could be contributing to this feeling, but I won't bother going into that here. There are so many factors that can create intensity in our personal lives and society at large. I just tend to notice it because I see themes in the lives of the people I consult with on a daily basis. It's interesting to watch everyone coming in with the same issues in droves. Often mirroring my own issues, of course. (Law of Attraction, that one!)

So, what to do? It's simple, really. But not necessarily easy. The best thing I have found is: breathe, drink water, take walks, just be. If you can, try to find the positive in whatever situation you are in. If you're not feeling that, just be. It will help. The more you can be the calm center, the more you will attract calm.

I've found through trial and error that losing my calm doesn't generally help. Especially lately. I'm not sure if it's where I'm at or just the evolution of our planet, but I find lately especially, if I do what I call "throwing a tantrum", it all generally gets worse before it gets better. (For me, throwing a tantrum is going off on an angry rant, either to the object of my ire or someone else. Sometimes it involves crazy sobbing.)

There are a lot of schools of thought out there that will tell you how helpful it is to "get it all out". I guess that could be true. Thinking in terms of Abraham's emotional scale, if you are in depression (anger turned inward) and you move up to anger (anger turned outward), you are making progress! You will feel better. So, I guess for some folks, a good, old-fashioned tantrum IS progress. However, I'm usually hanging out a little more in the boredom - appreciation range (1-7 on the scale). So, going down to anger (17) or rage (19), doesn't make things better. I love the wisdom of the Abraham material. (See, there I go into appreciation! Yay!)

In addition to breathing, drinking water, and walking, I'd say to check where you are on the emotional scale and do whatever you can to find relief. Move up the scale in steps. Wherever you're at, it's ok. Wherever you're at is temporary. You always have a choice as to how you will react to things. Just stopping and letting everything swirl around you can help you realize that it's really all fine. You might even begin to enjoy the show. And then you will attract much better circumstances.

God is a Detective?

This really cracked me up this morning. It's from Creativity: Unleashing the Forces Within (Osho, Insights for a New Way of Living.) I'm trying not to mention that I was in the bathroom when I saw this...

"The idea of God is that of a Peeping Tom who does not even allow you privacy in your bathroom, who goes on looking through the keyhole, watching what you are doing. This is ugly! All the religions of the world say God continuously watches you -- this is ugly, what kind of God is this? Has he got no other business but to watch everybody, follow everybody? Seems to be the ultimate detective!

Humanity needs a new soil -- the soil of freedom....Of course, you have not to interfere with anybody -- but as far as your life is concerned you have to live it on your own terms."

I'll take some abundance thinking with my fish and chips, please

On Friday, I performed a rather mundane, usual task for me: picking up food for my family at a little burger dive. My mother, who lives with us, usually just gets a cheeseburger. This time, however, she decided she wanted the fish and chips. As I was waiting in my car in line, I looked at the big menu. $7.50? $7.50! $7.50! The cheeseburger is just $3.00. What is she thinking? (Well, she doesn't know.) We have 5 people to feed. And on and on and on. I really don't want to reactivate my first thoughts (I can feel it happening!), so I will stop there. I just wanted to give you an idea of what those thoughts were and how they felt.

Then I noticed how I felt as I was sitting there fuming about my mother's huge extravagance. Not good. Tight. Constricted. And, as I searched for new thoughts, a little relieved. What were the new thoughts? First, "She doesn't know this costs double." Second, "This is silly. We can certainly afford this." Third, "Why shouldn't she have what she wants?" And better and better.

I've been working on the abundance thing for a while. I sometimes get tripped up because I'm also the family bean counter. So, to a certain extent, I have to watch the dollars. (It got kinda bad when no one was watching 'em fly around.) But I don't have to watch 'em feelin' like that. And really, I imagine there is a future for us with feelings so abundant and in tune that the money can fly around and it will all work out beautifully. (See, just got myself to an even better feeling thought!) I think the watching of the dollars helped me feel abundant for a while. By this I mean, planning a budget and tracking every little thing in financial software. Because I had a plan, I KNEW it would work out. It made me feel better. And then I got to feeling constricted about the plan. So, I had to back off on it a little. It's a work in progress.

The point is, whatever your issue, it's an ongoing process. Being conscious of your feelings in the small moments can really helpful in identifying where you're at, and making a change for the better.

Fish and chips for everyone! (Hey, is this getting biblical?)

Following the clues from your inner being: grinding

So, as you may have noticed, I've been mostly setting up the services I want to offer here at Manifest Laboratory. I wanted to take a moment and create a post that was not about that in the midst of all this set-up, though!

Basically, I like to post things as they are happening to me, as they occur to me. I like to live in the now and share that. What is happening now is that the universe seems to be coaxing me into all of this. It's really quite lovely. And a little bit scary. I'm being coaxed away from my day job, which is part love and part grind. I'm being coaxed into creating my own way, which will hopefully be all love, no grind. (Well, that sounded wrong! Ha. Don't tell my husband.) I guess I do hope there is some grinding. But see, this is exactly why I want to have my own thing. If I want to discuss grinding, let's do it! Whoa. Ha, these verbal plays are just rolling right out of me. But, I digress.

The real point of this post (I think) is to watch for clues from the universe and act on them. I have been enjoying that immensely. When I discussed that with my husband this morning, he agreed that he is doing that as well. When we do that, life tends to flow for us. It is mysterious and lovely and fun. Things happen in the most interesting and beautiful ways. I just realized I titled this "clues from your inner being" and now all I've talked about is "clues from the universe". I guess to me they mean the same thing. Everything you see "out there" is really a reflection of what is on the inside.

Having said that, what clues have you followed? Where have they led you? How much grinding have you done? (That last one is rhetorical. ;) )

Open-ended Vibrational Tune Up

As I've been working with the 15-minute Vibrational Tune Up, it's come to my attention that sometimes more time is necessary! To that end, I'm also offering the Open-ended Vibrational Tune Up. The concept is the same as the 15-minute Vibrational Tune Up, but without the time limit.

Basically, our goal in the session is to raise your vibration and help you find a better-feeling thought on whatever subject you choose. (Or perhaps even more than one.) We can also explore ways to keep the new thought active in your consciousness. My guess is that these sessions will find their natural end time. We will know when we are done. I doubt many will go beyond the 45-60 minute range. However, I'm willing to play it by ear and give the process the time it needs. Either party can choose to end the session.

Partially because I'm leaving the time open-ended, I've decided to offer this service on a donation basis. (Suggested donation is $1/minute.) Give what you can or what you feel the service was worth after the session. This policy subject to change.

Wanna give it a go? Schedule your session

I look forward to working with you!

Still immersed in The Vortex

I'm greatly enjoying the newest offering from Abraham-Hicks: The Vortex: Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships. It's one of those books I can't help but read with a pen in my hand. And continually quote on Facebook. I think it's also taking me longer because I keep reading it before bed. When I get tired, I can't help but think, "What would really make me feel good right now?" And the answer is often "Sleep". It's nice have reinforcement in making good choices in the now, so I go with it.

The focus of this book is on relationships, which literally touches on almost everything in our lives. Like many of the Abraham-Hicks books, a regular Abe reader will have heard much of what they are saying before. However, it's generally put together in different ways, with some new tidbits and much humor thrown in. I've been reading it in small pieces, savoring the experience. I also find the repetition to be very helpful in integrating the information into my life. Great stuff.

THE VORTEX: the newest book from Abraham-Hicks

I am only 9 pages into this book, but I am already loving it and quoting it all over the place, so I figured I might as well share it here. If you are at all drawn to it, I suggest you get The Vortex: Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships.

Take a break

I had an intense weekend. A lot of things came to me that I posted on here. A lot of things happened (or didn't happen!) in my day-to-day life. It was intense. At the end of it all, I had to just ask myself, "What do I do now?"

Myself answered, "Take a break."

Awesome. Good advice, Self. So, I pretty much did that. I gave myself some time and space to do what I wanted. I try to do that as much as possible these days, mostly because it's what I'm trying to create. More time. More freedom. More leisure. More fun.

As I've been experimenting with that, I realized just how many of the things on my to-do list are truly negotiable. I think sometimes we get stressed out under all the "shoulds" in our lives. As my friend said today, "Don't should all over yourself."

Of course, there are some things we really have to do in our lives. But, as one of my high school teachers was fond of saying, "All you really have to do is occupy space and die."

With that in mind, when we want a break, I think it pays to stand back and create it for ourselves. How many of the things we "should" be doing are self-imposed? In what ways can we free ourselves? The answers you come up with might surprise you.

About Me

Coaching Info: About Me

I've been a coach in some way for most of my life.
  • When I was in college, I worked as a writing coach to fellow students.
  • For over five years, I worked as a presentation coach to volunteer docents.
  • For the past two years, I've been a personal coach in a corporate setting, seeing anywhere from 50-80 clients per week.
I have been a spiritual seeker (and finder) for most of my life. I believe we are ultimately responsible for everything in our own lives. I have been studying spirituality, manifesting, and astrology for over a decade. I practice using my intuition on a daily basis. I also practice staying grounded in reality and jumping into living my dreams from there. I believe we create our lives using the law of attraction. I work to use it more consciously and help my clients do so as well. Currently, the biggest influence on my law of attraction work comes from the work of Abraham, but I am open to multiple teachers and paths. I follow what feels right and makes sense to me.

Mostly, I believe that the life I live prepares me to work with others. I do my best to live a life of joy, peace, honesty, love, creativity, and fun. I work to create balance between my roles of self, coach, wife, mother, and friend. I have had challenges in life, as we all have, and have always come back to joy and love. I work to remain open and come from acceptance of all that is.

I believe in coaching as valuable support and guidance. I hope to make coaching more accessible to all through an affordable, easy, enjoyable online format.

If you are interested in learning more about me, read my blog. I believe the best coaching situations happen when there is a natural affinity between coach and client. I believe you will know whether or not you feel this affinity with me from perusing this site. If so, I look forward to working with you to create something wonderful!

Because of the current nature of this site, the info that I publish regarding my coaching practice will be coming through as blog posts. The first one is going to be a disclaimer. Don't be scared. I'm sure I don't need one of these for you. It's those other people out there. ;)

Regardless, for my own protection and peace of mind, I've decided to ask everyone who chooses to have a coaching session to agree to a disclaimer before we begin. It's a little legalese sounding, but the real gist of it for me is more than just my protection, but for the client to really take responsibility for his or her own choices and actions. Taking responsibility for your own life is key to understanding and using your own power, so we might as well start with that.

Feel Good: Remember the Physical

Check out my new best friend: Pogo. Yes, I just named my rebounder. I am fully anthropomorphizing it. Yep. I guess it's all the Bizarro fiction I've been reading lately.

As many of you know, right now I'm very influenced by the teachings of Abraham. One of the basic tenets is to feel good. Because you attract what you are vibrating. When you feel good, you attract good things. When working with the law of attraction, I think the tendency is to focus on the mental or the spiritual. And Abraham does focus on the emotional a lot as well. It is our emotional guidance system that tells us if we are on the right or wrong track as far as what we'd like to attract. But I rarely notice anyone in law of attraction circles talking about the physical. So, I just want to remind us all to remember the physical.

I thought of that this morning because I was really excited to get on Pogo. (You know, I'm not sure about that name. It was the nickname of a kid I knew in grade school. It was a shortening of his last name. I like the name because I got it from this song sent to me by Michael Sherlock. But "getting on Pogo" still sounds weird to me, since I think of him as a 4th grade boy. I might have to rethink that.)

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Rebounding. I noticed that it just makes me feel good. I had the urge to do it when I got home from work yesterday. It was during that "I'm tired and vaguely annoyed because I just got home from a somewhat stressful day and I'm not fully integrated into my home life yet" time. A few minutes of bouncing sounded really good. I'd like to say I did it right then, but I didn't. I did do it later. And it did make me feel good. It seemed to change my physical chemical composition. It shook me up and made me feel tingly. A fellow rebounder told me that even just a few minutes of bouncing has beneficial effects. I can see that.

Here are some of the benefits of rebounding. The site is a little ghetto, but I did a quick skim and it looks like good info. Here's another one.

My main point is, if you want to improve your point of attraction, remember that enjoyable physical activity is a great option. By improving your point of attraction, I basically mean improving your mood. You cannot attract something better until you feel better. I know, it seems backwards, but that's the way it works. Everything in your experience is under your control. That's the blessing of the universe. (And sometimes the curse!) When we understand and consciously use the law of attraction to bring good things to us by feeling good, it is the blessing.

So, get out there and bounce, dance, run, walk, kick box, or scuba dive your way to a better life. I'm sure you can think of others. Feel good!

Video: Bashar -- Winning the Lottery

I notice that people seem to be interested in how to manifest winning the lottery. (Of course.) I think it's somewhat fun. I would love to win the lottery. But I also love it as a law of attraction exercise. In my opinion, when used correctly, the law of attraction greatly increases your odds from the ones they list on the back of the ticket.

A friend of mine on Facebook posted this video a while ago. I've been thinking about it lately, so I thought I'd share it. I've not seen any of Bashar's other work, but I do like what he has to say about this.

More about the need for tenacity: universal gift?

Today, as I was daydreaming in the midst of my day job, I had what I found to be an interesting thought. Now that I'm re-examining this thought, it's not that groundbreaking, but I think it still bears repeating.

What if the need for tenacity is a huge gift of the Universe? What if that is the way the Universe knows we mean business?

Conversely, what if you instantly got every little thing you thought you wanted? I can think of a few examples right off the top of my head that I thought I wanted, but upon short order decided, "no thanks". It's probably pretty helpful that every little thing we think we want does not immediately fall into our laps.

However, manifestation time does seem to get faster the more conscious and focused we become about it. Perhaps consciousness and focus are necessary prerequisites to speedy manifesting. Sure would make sense in a benevolent universe.

I love it when things make sense.

Just so you know.... Coaching

I have had "write up coaching information" near the top of my to do list for the past week. I'm not sure what is holding me back. (Well, perhaps you just read about my day.) I guess it's all still percolating. I have not forgotten. I look forward to getting it all put together and starting this new episode.

Resistance, Lovely Resistance

I titled this post at 10:16 am. It is now 10:26 pm. My 4 year-old son is finishing up his ice cream in the other room. I just ate mine. It's funny that I planned on talking about resistance today and then had this day.

Most of us encounter resistance at some point or another. I was planning to talk about mine this morning. And then I created some more. That crazy law of attraction. I probably shouldn't even talk about it now, but I cannot resist finishing this post 12 hours later with the knowledge of how my day went.

The resistance I planned to talk about was regarding wanting to quit my job. Indeed, planning to quit my job. It's been a crazy ride, just thinking about it. I seemed to be getting a lot of support for the crazy "leap and the net will appear" scenario I was planning. Until I told my mom.

Insert horror music here.

Yes, I am 37 years old. But, yes, my mom does live with us. So, I feel somewhat obliged to take her feelings into account. Notice I did say "into account". I still haven't told her that when I said, "Ok" after her fear-soaked rant to me about "making ends meet" and "the state of the economy," that I meant, "Ok, I heard you," and not, "Ok, I'm going to do what you want."

My intuition had told me that Friday was to be the day that I should give my 2 weeks notice. After the fear-soaked rant, I've just stopped thinking about it. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. But I felt I needed to let it sit. I needed to do things that made me feel good. I needed to let the fear slide off me.

And I started to think about resistance. And I started noticing that I kept reading about the importance of the focus of the mind. And being tenacious. I was listening to an interview with writer Kevin L. Donihe, who discussed the importance of being tenacious as a writer. (Great word, so I have stolen it. He is an excellent wordsmith.) I've been reading Russell Brand's autobiography, (another excellent wordsmith), and he talks about the importance of tenaciousness in a number of places. And my own husband, Kevin Shamel (yet another amazing wordsmith), has had to be tenacious for years to get where he's gotten (about to have his first book published).

What do we do when we encounter resistance? Just keep at it. If you have to, alter your course, but don't give up. I might need to alter my course of action. But I will keep at it. I will create more freedom and more money and more love and more fun.

Just for fun (see how fast that was?), I will tell you that I ended up spending about six hours getting my husband's website started today. After that, I multi-tasked making brownies and scrambled eggs. I was so proud. (I haven't been very domestic lately.) Just as I was putting the eggs on my son's plate, I noticed that they smelled a little funny. I asked my mom if she thought so. Yes. I checked the expiration date on the package: over a week ago. The eggs AND the brownies (made with the same eggs) had to go right into the compost. Ack.

I persevered. We got fast food. My order was so wrong I could not even eat it. But we did go to the store and get brownies. Ahhh. And ice cream. I had the ice cream already. Maybe I'll go have a brownie. Oh wait, I'm getting sidetracked. But that was the kind of day it was. However, in the end, all has ended well. Because through it all, especially the six hour website fun, I persevered.

In fact, in a somewhat sweet turn of events, my son received a toy with his meal that he tried to manifest about 2 weeks ago: a stuffed bear. We had no intention of getting him another stuffed animal, and we have no fondness for stuffed bears. But there it was. When he said he wanted it a couple weeks ago, he even said that either we would get it for him or the universe would bring it. Funny, he didn't remember that he had wanted that, but we did. Good manifesting!

This day has been interesting. I'm not sure exactly where I'm going. I'm not sure exactly how I'll get there. I just know I will move forward, thinking of tenaciousness. I will let the resistance I encounter make me stronger and wiser and more appreciative.

But don't get me wrong, I'm willing to take things that come easy, too! (Maybe that will set me up for a more pleasant day tomorrow.)

Now, smooth sailing...

Thanks for your perseverance in reading this far.

Is anyone else's 4 year-old up at 11:00pm still?

What about "opposites attract"?

This morning I awoke thinking about the concept of opposites attracting.

As far as conscious creation goes, I've been mostly working with and talking about the law of attraction. Simply stated, the law of attraction is "like attracts like". But what about "opposites attract"? We've all heard that (and seen to a certain degree) our whole lives. How do we reconcile the two?

To begin with, the two ideas are not necessarily logically mutually exclusive. You can have opposites attract and likes attract, right? My thinking is yes. However, my studies in astrology have taught me a deeper truth that makes sense of this apparent paradox. Opposites are actually two sides of the same coin. Opposites by their very nature have something in common. Opposites are like a continuum of the same idea.

You may ask for an example. Well, lets say astrologically speaking we are talking about the opposite signs of Pisces and Virgo. (The moon is in Pisces today and I've been talking about Pisces a lot.) If we talk about the trait of details as related to these two opposite signs, we would say that Virgo is all about details and Pisces sometimes can only see the forest and not the trees. (And even then sometimes the forest is kinda hazy.) So, it's opposite. But the whole thing is still focusing to some extent on details. There's the like inherent in the opposites.

Like attracts like AND opposites attract. Nice.

I just manifested myself a phone

This is so freaky. But so cool. I've been wanting a new phone. But I use the one I have now about once a month. I know, I am a freak. I couldn't really justify the expense. So I get on Facebook and see that one of my friends is selling pretty much the exact phone I was considering. But I'm still having a hard time justifying it. I mean, I am quitting my job, right? I start thinking of making him an offer somewhat less than his "buy now" price. As I'm thinking this, he writes to me with the exact price I'm considering.

I'm thinking, "Well, maybe this is a sign." But, getting back to the whole "I don't really use my phone and I maybe shouldn't spend money on something I don't use right now," I am thinking I probably shouldn't buy it. When I still can't justify it, he tells me he will give me the phone for a little bit of PR work. I felt a little weird about it at first, but then I realized that's just the way of the universe. So, right on. I'm getting a new phone!

Thanks universe!
Thanks friend!

A little bit of background on this situation. It's been a few months since I even thought of that phone. I had given up on it. Sometimes that's how it works.

Be a Spiritual MacGyver

Anyone who knows me knows I'm thinking of quitting my day job. Anyone who's read here probably knows that. Well, it's getting closer. The ole intuitive vibes have been pushing me to do something SOON. So, I'm thinking of things I could do to be of use other than working a day job. This blog is part of it. The online coaching that I'm planning is part of it. I'm considering doing some astrological consulting. I know my intuition is key. I know I need to work with that. I still haven't fully decided whether or not I'm going to be an eco consultant. Wow. What a bunch of crap. My rational mind says, "Specialize! Focus!" Maybe that is what I'm meant to do. But this morning I felt like I needed to be a spiritual MacGyver. Just use what I have. (Sydney Bristow from Alias comes to mind as well. Love her.) So, I'm pondering that.

Good thing this is a laboratory. I'm just tryin' shit out and seeing how it goes. Sorta. (Also planning to practice focus.) Wow. There's that paradox thing again. Interesting.

Sometimes I don't want to talk about this stuff

Sometimes I think I understand why some spiritual traditions talk about God as G-d. It baffled me at first. But it just seems too big to talk about sometimes. It seems like I can feel it and understand it ("it" being something goddish in nature), but when I try to make words they come out, "garble garble flap waggle plab."

How could anyone possibly understand The Infinite in words? I know what I sense. I know what I experience. Is it overkill or underkill to try to discuss? What is the point? Who is it for?

Sometimes I think a cave-dwelling existence might suit me more. But I guess not. So, I plug along.

Sometimes I feel like all of this manifestational stuff has been talked to death. And sometimes I feel like NO ONE knows it or gets it. So how can it have been talked to death? Sometimes it feels like new age tripe and I will come off as a new age tripe purveyor. And that is when I retreat to my cave, hording my Self to myself. But I know it is not tripe. I know it.

And every once in a third eclipse, I talk about those feelings. Maybe I should not be so true about this. Maybe I should not be vulnerable. Maybe I should not hit "publish post". I know the reality of the Law is that I should be focusing on what I do want. Not on this weird feeling. But here it is. So, it's going out. For now. Maybe someone else feels this way and needs to feel not quite so alone.

Isn't this post the antithesis of everything I'm doing? Oh well, must continue on. Paradox happily survives our plane.

Good night all. Full moon (eclipse) fever seems to have struck. See you in dreamyland.

Space Chick is by Ed Mironiuk

Doy. I meant to give Space Chick artist Ed Mironiuk some major props for his faboo art, but I got all stuck in my head about what I was saying.

To see more of Ed's Fetish Tattoo Pinup Art, click here. (Clearly, he's amazing.) From that lead-in, you are forewarned some of his stuff is more for grown ups, if ya know what I mean.

(I posted this separately instead of just editing the original post, because I think if anyone is reading this on Facebook or from a different feed they only get the first version.)

It's not about following the rules. It's about following your heart.

Hold on to your hats, manifestational world, I've got a biggie comin' atcha...

I believe my vision board is coming down.

I want it to work. I don't want to give up on it. But quite frankly, I'm a little sick of it. It's been up in front of my desk for over 2 years now. I don't think I've really gotten any of the things on it yet. Hmmm. Not sure if I'm doing anything wrong. They are "supposed to" work, right? They are "supposed to" work even as a subconscious thing, I thought.

Well, I found a new piece of artwork that I would like to use to replace the defunct vision board.

For some reason, I feel she is going to inspire me more than my vision board. I love her. She's beautiful. She's unique. She's sexy. She's holding a freakin' gun! That's so funny. I'm not into guns! But it is an old-timey Buck Rogers gun. How can you not love it? And I feel like it reminds me to embrace the things that I don't think are me in order to be more. Or in order to just be the ALL.

It reminds me of that phrase, "If you see the Buddha, kill him." I've seen some interpretations of that phrase that don't please me for some reason. To me, it means that we cannot take anything for granted. Everything the Buddha is about is to not kill. But if we take it too seriously, if we get stuck in dogma or hero worship, we are lost.

So, I've got my Buck Rogers gun all trained and ready for if the Buddha comes a-knockin'. And I'm gonna use it to take down the ole vision board.

And I might just need some pink hair before all this is over.

So, how will this help me more than my vision board? I guess because I am just seeing past my vision board now. It's just a jumble of stuff. Space Chick has more meaning, more oomph, more soul. She makes me HAPPY. And that's the best thing.

Abraham on disciplined thought

So cool. As I was writing my last post, I was wanting to explain how it works that you control your point of attraction and that is what makes all the difference in your life. It seemed too complex for me to try to explain. I just happened to head over to see the Abraham quote of the day, and the quote did it for me. Ha! So here it is...

When you begin to understand Law of Attraction, and you understand that which is like unto itself is drawn, then it is easier and easier to understand that you are offering a signal, and the entire Universe responds. And when you finally get that, and you begin to exercise some deliberate control about the signal that you offer, then it really begins to be fun, because then you recognize that nothing happens outside of your creative control. There are no things that happen by chance or by circumstance. There is nothing that is happening because of something you vibrated a long time ago or in a past life. It is not about what you were born into. It is only about what you are, right now, in this red hot fresh moment emitting.
--- Abraham

Excerpted from the workshop in Seattle, WA on Saturday, June 20th, 1998

Everything Starts with (Disciplined) Thought

Everything starts with a thought. I woke up with that thought in my mind. I began to ruminate on it. I believe this is true. Thought is the first thing. It is akin to vibration. In my mind, they are close, yet not the same. And your vibration is your point of attraction. What does this mean on a practical level? To me, it means it is important to be disciplined in our thoughts. I have seen this make a big difference in everything that happens around me. It's the most awesome magic.

Yet "discipline" sometimes feels almost like a dirty word to me. I can't seem to decide. I sometimes want to be disciplined and I sometimes very much don't want to be disciplined. I know when I am, everything runs smoother. Perhaps the answer is in changing my thought about discipline. Or perhaps it is in following my intuition about what I need right then: discipline or not. But mostly, what I am thinking about in these situations when I rebel against discipline is discipline of ACTION. (Is the word discipline starting to look and sound weird to anyone else? You know how that is when you say or write a word too many times? All of a sudden, I was like, "What a WEIRD word!")

Anyway, back to what I was saying. I think I may have just figured it out. I can see how discipline of ACTION comes and goes in how it feels. Sometimes I want to and sometimes I don't. However, discipline of THOUGHT and VIBRATION always feels good to me. Why is that? Because it always yields results. It is consistent with the law of attraction. It does not matter what you are DOING so much as what you are BEING while you do the things you do. When disciplined action comes from an inspired place, it feels good. When it comes from a forced place, not so good. When we discipline our thoughts, everything around us falls into place. Life flows. We are inspired to take action and that action yields us the results we want. And sometimes it doesn't even matter because inspired action in and of itself feels good. (All this thought of my mine here and directly below is most likely inspired by Abraham.)

Because, really, it is all about feeling good. When we feel good, we attract good. It is sacred selfishness. And it spills love out to the whole world.

So let the dishes sit if you must, but focus on wonderful, happy thoughts of clean dishes. Before you know it, those dishes will get done. Either by you in a happy way or someone else. Or you'll just decide to be happy and not care about the dishes. I have seen this happen in myself a number of times. When I look at something in my home in distaste, it persists. I have no desire to deal with it. When I look at it and think, "Ok, what is it that I DO want?" When I think, "I want that surface clean and tidy," then it changes my feeling and I am now compelled to clean and tidy it. And feel good about it. Or someone else comes along and does it (which is fun, too.)

This post again inspired by Christine Kane by way of Amy. Thanks ladies. As Christine says in that article, I had no idea what I was going to write when I started this post. But, this is just what I do.

Have a synchronicitous day

Allrighty. So every little thing is telling me to leap and the net will appear. And I just received the book Fearless Living: Yoga and Faith.
Then I hear a song in the background that I'm liking. I can tell it is Pink Floyd, but I'm not familiar with it. I click over to my Pandora (from whence the song comes), only to find it is called Fearless.

Really cool lyrics, too. They are displayed in the info. Looks like the song was made in 1971. I was made in 1971 as well! (Came out in 1972, though.) Ha.

And then, as I was writing all this, the subject of skiing came up. And I had to tell my friend I've always feared skiing. Too funny.

Fun world. Enjoy the video. (I do not intend to start skiing, although I may do other things I've feared in the past.)

Manifestory: Window Magic

I wasn't planning on writing today. But Christine Kane has inspired a tad bit of discipline, so what the heck. (Thanks, Amy.)

Here's just a little manifestory.

Today, I went walking with a dear friend of mine. When I met her at our agreed-upon walking place, she was having troubles getting her car window to shut. I just watched her. Didn't say much. She wasn't sure she was going to be able to shut it. She was a tad concerned because she had some items for camping in the back that she didn't want prey to thievery. I just watched, thinking, "That window's just gonna shut for her." She was putting it down a little and up a little. Each time it would go up a little more. She seemed ready to give up on it. I just kept thinking, "That window's just gonna go right up." And sure as shit, it did.

Enjoy practicing some magic in your day. If you feel like it, tell us about it!

If you build it, they will come

Allrighty, so that's a cheesy line from the film Field of Dreams. I'm not even sure if I ever saw that film. But, I like idea. It keeps coming to me.

Lately, I've been getting back in touch with my intuition. That feels good. I'm all about feeling good. Following my intuition creates more fun, ease, and mystery in life. You can't necessarily see how things are going to turn out, but you know they will.

So, I've been really wanting to quit my day job. I've just been waiting until my husband gets a book or two published or whatever he needs to do to start supporting us. He is on his way with that, so I've kinda just been waiting. However, today I just started thinking, "What if..." I thought I didn't want a different job because what I really thought I wanted was no job. Well, I think that may be true. However, what's wrong with a BETTER job in the interim? The trouble was, I was having a hard time envisioning what might be better.

So, I got stuck.

And that was so silly.

Today, I began to envision what would be better. Here is what I envisioned:

* I work 10-15 hours/week.
* I work from home or wherever.
* I can look, act, or dress however I like.
* I make at least $60/hour. To start.
* I work when I feel like it.
* I play when I feel like it.
* Work feels like play.

Now that sounds like a job worth having. Maybe I'll even keep it when I achieve Trophy Wife status. Maybe.

If I truly believe in Law of Attraction (which I do--I've seen it work hundreds of times), why can't I create this? Of course I can! (Another thought was "Why didn't I just create the Trophy Wife job I am also after?" But oh well. The intuition is leading me here. Maybe I am more than a trophy wife. Ha.)

I've been feeling like I would move on from my regular job. I didn't see how. Once I was willing to move forward with the feeling of quitting my job for something better, better ideas of jobs began to come to me. My intuition was telling me to just quit. It actually gave me a specific date the other day, which really rather freaked me out. (It's soon!) But now it is giving me a more specific plan and the understanding that no matter how I do it, all is well. I can transition quickly or I can transition more gradually. All is well. I will get there either way.


So, what is it?
I'm not totally sure yet!
I'm planning the following:
* Law of Attraction coaching using Skype
* Astrological coaching separately or as an adjunct
* Possibly proofreading/editing services for things I'd like to read
* Possibly writing projects

Fee: $1/minute(to start)

I have to get on with figuring out all the details of how it will work, but first I wanted to declare it.

Universe, you are on notice: I'm creating new dharma that I love! I do what I want when I want. My husband and I are free to pursue our creative, abundant, fun destinies. We get paid well. I live a healthy, balanced, creative, fun life. It's getting better and better.

Back from Beyond

Hey all,

I just had some quasi-forced time off when my laptop screen up and died. Then it was held captive at the computer shop for about a month. Throughout this time I've been ruminating and ruminating.

More to come...

The day of flying

A friend recently shared a concept with me. She calls it "the flying state". The idea is that you stay in your happy, loving, blissful state regardless of your outer circumstances.

Flying state.
I can see how this would manifest great results.
However, beyond that, if you really get there, it kinda doesn't matter, don't it?

Flying state.
So, my outer results are really manifesting in cool ways.
But I need to be a little more patient, so this will be my focus today.
Flying state.

at Peace

This day.

Daily Focus 1/3/09

I have been inspired to take time off from intentions (perhaps indefinitely) in favor of rekindling a more direct, immediate, and useful connection to the divine. I have always had challenges with manifesting in knowing what is best for me. I often have direct preferences, but not always. Especially in these cases, it is best to surrender the decision to a higher power. Source energy will come up with something, generally far greater than I would or could imagine.

As such, I am sticking with:

I love you
I'm sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
I love you

This is the ho'oponopono path. I have been learning of this path from this book, written by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len:

In this path, one takes 100% responsibility for one's life. Everything that comes into my life, I created or attracted in some way. Therefore, I take responsibility. If I do not like something, I ask forgiveness of myself that the divine may transmute it into something more divine. Usually, love. The words above are spoken to self because everything in the outer world is a reflection of the self. They are spoken incessantly, internally, and externally. They bring peace. They bring flow.

As Dr. Hew Len says,
Peace of I

So, you may be reading those words from me a lot. That could be a good thing.
