law of attraction
The time has come.
The life I was living and the life I’ve dreamed of living are colliding
now more and more. I have been my
very best client. The creator in
me is constantly hungry and the visualizations I have been feeding it are
actually being created. But it’s
not like just creating the picture- it’s more like you step INTO the
picture. You imagine what it LOOKS
like. Then you imagine what it FEELS
like. And then you practice. THAT’S IT.
That’s it because all of a sudden you find yourself in a place
that the two get glued together so well that you find yourself in that
vibration even longer. And then
even longer until it gets flipped and you experience THAT more positive
vibration and existence more than the you that just imagined it.
Want to try it out? Want to see if it works? Doing this allows you to imagine even BIGGER. To see past whatever limitation you
find as you proceed through your journey.
And you will find them- your limitations. A very good friend of mine recently asked the question, “If
there was no fear how would it be” and it hit something in me. It helped me to identify that all of my
limitations are anchored by fear.
How about you? Think about
what you tell yourself that keeps you held back from progressing in some way…
what is your excuse? Once you get
that it should be easier to find what fear it is connected to.
Once you find the fear anchor, make peace with it. Contemplate whether it is a truth you
need to still believe and hold on to.
If it is not, accept that it may have been necessary to get you through
a period in your life but it is no longer needed.
And then do something different. Change YOUR role in that interaction. Say something different. Do something different. We are responsible for our output. If that is true, readjust your position
if needed and watch the outcome.
You will notice something positive if you provide and connect with
I have been blessed with the people- every person that has entered my life, at every stage. The people who have helped make things better, the supporters and the people who have contributed to the pain I have experienced. I am grateful. It is a wonderful gift how people enter our lives through circumstances we sometimes are unaware of... new jobs, friends of friends, extended family, the food store, the gym... we meet people everyday, we interact and we respond. Sometimes we judge. Occasionally we open up to a connection. I have been blessed with wonderful connections. I remember first learning about the Law of Attraction and beginning to understand that what you put out you receive. How energy attracts like energy. I practiced and practiced. I became very conscious of what I omit, understanding that it will return. I now radiate love. That love that comes from deep inside. The gratitude, appreciative, respectful, spiritual kind of love. Today, I am connected to people from all over the world who support and add like value to my life.
One of these people has been very connected with me along her journey of awakening. I am honored to share some of the automatic writing she has created. I would like to note that she is still equally shocked and proud of what comes from within her, but she is now connected to source, to that love I speak about.
Her name is Jessalyn Szczepanik and I suggest you friend her on Facebook. She is inspirational, supportive and full of experience and love. I will be posting some of her automatic writing here because, quite frankly, I think people should see it. So without further ado, here is Jessalyn's 1st automatic writing creation. Much Love.
oh btw... the subject of her email was Holy Sh*#!!
"I have no idea what is going on with me today. I have no idea where this came from but I couldn't NOT write it. I had too, I was being pulled to write all day. Supernaturally pulled. I know this sounds weird but I swear I was pushed into the chair in front of my computer as I was walking by it today to get a glass of water. I am amazed and freaked all at the same time. I can feel myself changing Amy....I can feel it.
Love Advice? Advice on Love? How about we use the LOA....
This morning I was given the opportunity to provide advice on relationships; men and love in general. It was as much a profound experience for myself, as I hope it was for the other person. I would by no means say I am an expert on this topic, nor do I have the greatest track record to go on. I have however embraced all of my experiences as lessons. Lessons I would never trade, experiences I am so grateful to have had. Regret is never a word I use, I am a firm believer that all of your moments count in a beautiful way. All of your experiences are lessons that helped to create who you are today, to create your journey. The more exciting the lessons, the more interesting your story is to tell right?
Now I would like to preface this by stating a fact I have come to recently realize about myself.....I have never actually been in love. I have had times that I thought I may have been, but after reflecting on those relationships I know I definitely was not. I have loved many people and I love many people. I love my friends, my family, my children. I am in love with myself. I always make an effort to treat everyone I meet with love and kindness. Needless to say I spread a lot of love on a daily basis.
There are questions we need help answering at times. We have people in our lives we turn to for help or to encourage us see our questions in a different light. I believe I am asked for advice because I am honest, I am true. I will not lie to you and will always encourage every person I meet to be the best they can be. I certainly do not think it is because I have all the answers. I myself have friends I turn to for the same reasons. These friends provide me with sound advice, honesty and the encouragement to grow. I turn to these friends, as people turn to me. I do not give you answers, I encourage you to see the paths available to you. I encourage you to see the many sides of a situation and ask you to weigh the benefits of each path you could take. Suggestions are made to promote thoughts or ideas that help you create solutions or new avenues of thought. I focus on your needs and the outcome of your personal desires without any of my own ideals influencing your situation. Your situation is unique to you after all, it is not mine to shape. It is not my outcome. I help a person use all of this to create the personal best in their own life. I enjoy helping people, I find excitement in the experience of seeing another find an answer that was unclear to them before a good discussion.
It is a beautiful experience to see minds opening to possibilities, or ideas, that are so new that it allows for the expansion of a new way of thinking they didn't know existed. Everyone has a journey, a path that is being lain stone by stone with every new step.
I am 100% certain I am in love with my children but with children, it is a different kind of love. It is a love of growth. Of protection. Of seeing and encouraging the body-mind-spirit of a soul that was gifted to you. I wonder, however, if this form of love could be looked at in an attempt to make sense of the non parental loves? You do not pick your children. They are, as I stated before, gifted to you. You are given their bodies, their minds, their souls. Your children arrive in this world, full of wonder with a soul already formed. Their fibers of personality, their brain, their core intact. As we nurture these little bodies, outside sources will play a role in their learned behaviors, but they were born as individual beings full of their own unique predetermined intuitiveness and nature.
So in seeing the all encompassing love for your child, why is it that we have so many questions on what love is in other relationships? Male and female, friendships, family? Why do so many individuals not hold a knowledge of this feeling of love?
I have been told by some that true love, or divine love as I like to call it, comes to you when you least expect it. When you are in a state of existence purely focused on your own sense of self, during your time of personal growth. When love could even be viewed as inconvenient or not ideal for you at the time. Love may make it's presence known in a person whom you would not think to choose for yourself necessarily. Who arrives in an unexpected moment. This person could show up as a stranger in your life, as an acquaintance or in a friend.
It is my experience, and I have done this as well, too many men and women actively seek or chase the idea of love. We do this in hopes that the perfect person will come along to sweep us off our feet in a moment of passion. We do this as an act of societal expectation, because as we all know, for so many of us marriage becomes an expectation once you reach a certain age. Intimacy becomes acceptable where it may not have been otherwise. In this day and age, marriage is still looked at as a form of stability, of normalcy. Free love, sexual expression and casual relationships continue to be viewed as taboo in many a household. So does the single woman, you spend the first 18 years trying to keep your daughter away from boys and then the next 20 wondering why she isn't married.
Unfortunately, from these expectations come behaviors which result in our thoughts generally heading into a state of relationships every time our primal urges kick in; finding one, being in one, keeping one. We do this in a state of insecurity, in an unhealthy state of need. When these actions are taken, more often than not we find ourselves with a person who is not a good match therefore falling 'out of love' or speeding into a rut of unhappiness, anger, disappointment. You should never be in any relationship out of need. Love was never present. Lust was there rearing it's head in a moment of admiration. Momentary acts of passion and excitement, yes. Love? No.
Love in any degree, whether it is a friendship or romantic, should promote personal growth. Love should always bring with it happiness and encouragement. It will add positive factors into your life making it even more fabulous than you had already created it to be. Love should never take away or decrease. It will never ask you to change or cause you discomfort. Love should never be forced, it is a pure and healthy emotion when occurring in it's natural form.
After many years practicing the law of attraction in all aspects of my life; practicing meditation, opening my mind to the universe, embracing the experience of awakening, I have developed a description of what love means to me. I believe love, as with everything, is individual to each person. What love means to you will be different than what it is to me. The characteristics in a partner which will make me happy, will be different than yours. What I value in a partner may be at the bottom of your list and vice versa. For example, a lot of woman view a man's ability to provide as a top priority where I have a man's gift of making me laugh in that same spot. There is nothing right or wrong with this; your personal experiences, individual characteristics and your being as a whole have a hand in molding your perception of everything.
My experience with love thus far has opened my eyes to the many types of unique bonds you can be blessed with when you are open to receiving. As I said above, love for your children is a special kind. Love however, can show it's face in many a form I have come to realize. Over the years I have connected to people I consider my inner circle, or more adequately described, my circle of love. My circle of love is built of individuals who have proven themselves to me time and time again in a variety of ways, and I to them. With their love and friendship I been given strength, trust, compassion, encouragement, wisdom. I have been blessed with the ability to surrender to the knowledge that I am completely, and uniquely, accepted in their eyes, minds and hearts. I enjoy the gift of laughter, love, safety, protection, intimacy, music and happiness. Each person in my circle brings joy and peace to my already wonderful life. These individuals are ever present in my mind every moment of my day. In return, I provide the same qualities to each of these beautiful individuals as they do to me. We are grateful for each other and show appreciation in many forms; quality moments, thoughtful gestures, listening and contributing to each others lives. We continue to always live in a circle of love, our circle never breaking the golden thread of such a beautifully unique and special bond.
From my experiences of pure love with the members of my circle, I have concluded what divine love will be for me. I will attempt to put in words, what I know for myself, will be deeply felt as indescribable.......
What I believe, or envision divine love to be in it's original form is friendship. When a friendship evolves into love, it adds a quality I would describe as an inner fire. Friendship on fire is divine love. This fire brings with it a feeling of deep companionship ignited by an inner passion for that one person in your minds eye, that one person who matches your core in the deepest state imaginable. That person who is always in your focus, in your mind, ever present. Whose face brings with it a sense of calm, whose smell ignites a passion within your soul. Whose presence and touch create a sense of security, of protection, of familiarity. Whose eyes see yours and twinkle with the words you love to hear. Whose voice provides the same feeling of serene comfort the sound of the waves and feel of beach sand have always given you. The importance of their happiness and seeing their smile becomes parellel to your own. Always striving to promote even more love, enrichment and joy into each other daily lives. Always giving. Love is laughter everyday, love is acceptance, the ability and comfort of being 100% yourself with this person. A pure connection so natural, so easy, so effortless that it is described as "just being". It is a unique acceptance of each others characteristics, of understanding the fibers and experiences that this person is built upon. You are two people intertwined by your similarities, kept interested by your differences and connected by your inner spirit. The inner spirit that was present and recognizable from your day of introduction. This divine love brings with it the desire to grow together, to encourage each other to be the best form of ourselves, for ourselves, and also for each other.
In conclusion to this dialogue, I guess we could ask ourselves to do a few things. If we want to create and have love in our lives this is some advice I believe we must follow.
Be completely open to receiving love in all forms. Live every moment in a state of pure love. Give love to everything you do, send love into the universe with every breath. Wake each day, and fall asleep each night, with the pure intention of becoming an even better you than you were the day before. Be it, see it and put your love into it. Continue to grow, continue to evolve.
Be ever present in the moment.
I want to discuss energy. A while back I use to play with the idea of it- I imagined it radiating from me like a tutu. If I was in a good vibe it would be flowy or fluffy, maybe soft pink or white...sometimes if I was angered or upset it would look like sharp black spikes shooting out from all around me.
I would go to the grocery store and play with energy. I would stand at the end of an aisle and look at the people shopping on that aisle as I'd make mine very strong. I would feel and imagine positive rays shooting out from me and then I would walk down the aisle pretty slowly.
The experience was so amazing. I could "see" my energy mixing with theirs... I would consciously radiate mine into theirs. Then they would smile at me and I would smile and walk by.
I know this sounds crazy but it is not much different than when you walk into a room where the air feel tense, or you feel a connection with someone across the room. Energy is all around us; we send it, we receive it, we mix it and we attract it. It is everywhere. It is what keeps us connected and pushes us away.
I began to pick out my tutu as I picked out my clothes in the morning. I learned that choosing your energy is best done first thing in the morning, before any negative can mix into yours easily.
Since that time my experience with energy has expanded. The tutu isn't there anymore ; ). It is now something I see on everyone, covering them like ivy on a beautiful building or a like an extra layer of us that surrounds our whole being.
I don't usually have to know what's going on in your day to know how you are feeling based on your energy. You can do the same. Have you ever felt someone's energy?
This is WHY it matters... if you have felt someone's energy, odds are YOUR energy can be felt too. That is what I refer to when I speak of sending love. I am sending MUCH love most of the time. That love is the energy I hope you feel. It radiates from me. It is how I would like to connect with every person and experience that I am grateful to have- with my love, my positive energy.
What energy are you sending? What energy do you want others to feel? What energy feels best on you? If you aren't sure, ask yourself how people respond to you. How do others act around you? How do YOU feel?
Pick it out tomorrow morning, when you pick out your clothes. Put on the energy that feels the best and allows others to be affected by it. Allow YOURSELF to be affected by it.
From my tutu to yours... sending Much Love.
Today I wanted to share that the thought of tomorrow excites me. What excites me the most about tomorrow is that I am now certain- free of doubt- that my tomorrow is a product of today. This may seem like something you've heard before but I'm talking a bit more consciously ; )
You see, every day we wake with more time. Each day provides for us the opportunity to think, to act and to do- to create our life. What we do with that time directly and indirectly creates our world.
More and more people all over the globe are understanding and using this information to more consciously steer their lives in any way they can imagine it. You just have to be open enough to try.
Just try try and improve whats been bothering you. Just try to see past your current circumstances and begin to dream again. To dig inside and uncover the magic that has been inside of you the whole time.
I tried. I opened myself up to this idea... and then I began to FEEL
better. So then of course I did it more... I began using the affirmation, "I attract and am surrounded by like-minded people", even though 98% of the people in my life thought I was just nuts ; )
Looking back I can see how they thought I was nuts. For me though, it was the chance of something better that made it worth the risk of finding out if I was right or indeed, just nuts.
Let me tell you that magical things are happening. They've been happening all along but I was programmed to believe that magic and greatness were for someone else... someone maybe famous or ridiculously smart. The secret I have really learned is that it IS in you. It IS in me.
We each have the option to just try and believe or not to. If you don't its ok... you will not have to risk improving anything in your life or risk experiencing fabulous new opportunities... it can just keep going and going, headed in the direction it already has been steered in...but remember that today, right this minute, you are creating your tomorrow too, whether you try it or not. Much Love.
I have some exciting news to share. I feel it’s important to preface this
news with a somewhat abbreviated version of how it all happened… You see, this year has been an amazing
year and I wanted to pause and acknowledge how I got here because it is so directly
related to what I want to share.
Most of my adult life has been spent in the beauty
industry. I started as a
hairdresser and then high school teacher, adult school teacher, sales and
education coordinator for a beauty industry leader. I also have had experiences owning a title agency, working
in retail, being a closing agent and working in a school for children who are
deaf and hard of hearing.
My career experiences are as vast as my educational
ones. I started college in 1991
and feel as though I have been going ever since. I have been an elementary education major, English major,
English writing major, math major, and psychology major. I have proven “smart enough” to do
everything I have tried but I have lacked the passion that was needed for any
of it to be truly successful.
And then I had my daughter and my life changed. Everything I ever thought and
everything I ever knew changed. My
perspective on life and my role in it changed. It seems that at this point in my journey there was a massive
shift of energy. I had reached the
threshold of life as I knew it but was unaware of anything except trying to
adjust to that new role.
Before I was 2 years into motherhood, my daughter and I
found ourselves suddenly on our own, as the life we were comfortable living
came crashing down. I am one of
the very many people who found themselves without most of the comforts and
pleasures I had once enjoyed. I
lost my homes, my relationships, my work , my money, most of our things…
And it got worse.
Each and everyday for the following two years presented a challenge of
getting out of bed and making the best of it for my daughter. My goal was to protect her from seeing
my pain or noticing any of the seemingly devastating losses we had
suffered. I was aware that I was
creating her future, how she thought and felt and I wanted it to be fabulous
regardless of our new seemingly unfortunate circumstances. It was difficult to say the least, but
I made a conscious effort, everyday.
During that two -year period, I saw an episode of Oprah about The Secret. After
watching for 60 minutes, I still had no idea what it was. I didn’t think about it anymore until
months later at a friend’s house. The Secret DVD was in the pile of
potential movies for the evening. As
the movie played I felt as if I was the only one in the room. It was speaking directly to me; A
new prospective which brought an instantaneous shift in energy again.
My viewing of that movie triggered a chain of events. I bought the movie and played it every
time I was home (going to sleep, cleaning, cooking). It didn’t matter what I was doing, the movie made me feel
better. It gave me hope. It helped me to be open to my changed
world. It inspired me to find
something good in EVERY experience I had.
It was difficult to do, but I really didn’t have much choice. Things were bad. They were worse than I could ever have
imagined. But, I had nothing left
to lose and there was still a bit of hope in all of my despair, so I chose to
I began starting every single day telling my daughter how
beautiful the day was. We would
stand outside our rent-controlled apartment looking up to the clouds and say,
“Thank you for today. It’s a
beautiful day and I am grateful.”
I didn’t believe it at first but it became a habit. And I started to feel good. Things were still very bad but I was
I bought the audio CD’s for The Secret. I listened
ever time I was in the car. I made
a vision board, as did my daughter.
I told anyone about it that would listen. Most people thought I was nuts, some didn’t.
Upon feeling better I began to research why I was feeling better.
What was it in my brain that would allow me to feel better under such
bad circumstances? This question
led me to investigate the teachers in the movie that had impacted me so
drastically. That is when I
discovered Bill Harris and his program Holosync. I ordered and began listening to
his program. He can certainly
describe what it does much better than myself but I can tell you that it made
me aware of my brain. His program
introduced me to the relation between what we expose our brain to and the
direct affect it has on us. It was
fabulous! I immediately began
feeling really good. Nothing had
changed around me but I was feeling really good.
My experience with Holosync and my new understanding of how
the brain works led me again on a search of the power of our minds, which is
where I first saw some information on hypnosis. I was intrigued.
Not knowing much about it, I learned as much as I could including what
it takes, academically, to do hypnosis.
The first website I found regarding certification listed their class
schedule and I called. That
happened on a Wednesday. The first
class began that Saturday. I
didn’t know how I would pay or how I could make it work but I felt pulled in
that direction. It all happened so
quickly and easily that I felt I should see where it took me.
That Saturday I arrived early for the class and sat in my
car for 30minutes. I thought, “How
did I end up here and what am I thinking?” After quite a few deep breaths, I decided to go inside and
within 5 minutes knew it was exactly where I belonged. My life had shifted again. There was no way I could have ever seen
it coming, but it did and it was one of the most beautiful blessings I could
have ever received.
So with some additional certifications, and continuous study
of some of our most wonderful spiritual teachers, I continue my journey, now
filled with passion and purpose.
My intention is to share with whoever is ready, a new perspective. One
that helps guide them in the direction they wish to travel, doing it with
passion and purpose as well.
This past year I have worked with a public middle school
using guided relaxation and visualization to help increase student test
scores. I have performed hypnosis
on patients undergoing surgery in the operating room, I have traveled to speak
at a college, inspiring the students to pay attention to the most beautiful
tool we have- our brain. I have
worked with clients with physical pain, mental anguish and many trying to
overcome self-limiting beliefs.
Today I can say that all of this, every part has been a
gift. Very soon this website will
be changing as I will be announcing the birth of my most beautiful creation
(Izabella aside, of course). It is
a project that will inspire and change the lives of many people. My partners and I have combined our passion
and shared purpose of helping you find and believe the greatness inside of
you. You will find it. You will share it and we will all live
in Much Love.
Thank you for all that you have added to my moments. Whatever your input has been- big or
small, local or distant, good or bad- you have added to my life and I thank
I will be seeing you soon… Much Love.
o your brain… The brain is a beautiful machine, responsible
for so many parts of our existence.
I have studied two of those parts for the past few years: the conscious and unconscious. What I have learned about our brains has helped me to transform my entire life. Learning about my brain has allowed me the opportunity to navigate through my life differently- better. It has been so life transforming that it has become my intent to help people of all ages- learn how their thoughts impact their life experience and that each individual has the tool to experience a better version of the life you are living.
YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND
Your conscious mind is very diligent. It awakes and sleeps when we do. Its job, while we are awake, is to
collect information for us. It has
been doing that since the moment we were first born (some would argue even
before that). How does it collect
information? Through our five senses. TASTE TOUCH SMELL SIGHT and SOUND. Remember learning those in grammar
school? Well, they started working
long before you knew about them.
You are gathering information every second. If the milk has expired and you didn’t see
the date, how do you know it’s spoiled? You taste
it. Very valuable, don’t you
agree? How often do you touch
the hot stove? The sense of touch will warn you that
perhaps it’s not a good idea. Have
you ever smelled
something burning or
maybe a gas leak? How about a baby’s
soiled diaper? Again, this is
pretty valuable information in my opinion. What do you see
that provides valuable information
for you? How about the red traffic
light? A rash on your skin? Important? What about the sound
of someone calling your name? Or
of a child calling for help,
or a person calling you stupid?
Your senses are working for you every second you are awake. We use them to navigate through the
So the conscious mind collects, interprets and then stores
information for us. It stores the
information based on what has been already stored. Let me explain.
Starting with the moment we are born, our journey is led by what feels
good and what doesn’t. We
determine that with our senses and then that information is gathered and
If a food makes you ill, you probably avoid that food
throughout your journey. If a
person makes you feel good, you probably plan being with them. Maybe certain material feels good on your skin so you prefer
wearing it. The perfume or cologne
you wear may reinforce how people respond to you which makes you want to wear
it more often. The smell of apple
juice is connected to the smell of diapers for me. It is not a favorite.
My sense of smell collected that input during a time in my life when I
was changing a lot of diapers and pouring a lot of apple juice. Not the greatest connection, but
nonetheless it was collected, interpreted, stored and has affected how I think
and feel about apple juice.
Many years ago I worked in an Aveda concept salon. There were many oils that could be used
for many different purposes. We
were taught that before you use oil on a client, a test needed to be done. We had to determine what smell was
appealing to the client and which was not so that their service would be
completely enjoyable. So I would
ask them to pick about five oils and then I would pick a few more. The interesting thing is that they would
report the ones they picked as smelling like a “time” or “memory”. Pine for example, would smell like
“Christmas” and cinnamon would smell like “fall”. I would even get responses to some of the oils like “grandma’s
house” and “the beach”.
the oils they would smell that they had no connection to would get a different
response. Thinking back it is so
fabulous to think of them starting a new connection. They would smell and smell again and think and smell again. They would try to associate it with one
that was familiar and finally that would dictate whether they liked it or not.
Your senses are always working for you. Pause autopilot for a moment and see
what they are telling you. How do
you feel right now? Do a check of
your senses if you haven’t already.
How does each of those things make you feel? Are you thirsty? Are you hungry? Are you comfortable? If the answer is yes, you will probably
continue reading, but if not, you may have to stop and take action in some
way. You may have to respond to
the information your senses have provided for you at this moment.
What adjustments can you make right now with this
awareness? (Get something to eat,
adjust the music, lower the sound on the TV, adjust the lighting, grab a
Our conscious mind works very hard for us. It is constantly giving us information
about our surroundings.
Congratulations on paying attention to it. I suggest you do it more often, but we will get more into
that a bit later. Much love.
Ah yes, patience. When patience are combined with passion and purpose anything can happen. Your circumstances do not have ANY hold on what your tomorrow can be... Think of all the "reasons" you allow yourself not to succeed... all of the blame or jealousy or fear and then ask yourself what you need to do or keep doing or do a little differently to become successful.
How do people succeed? They don't give up. Unfortunately if you are like I was, you may have created all kinds of beliefs about why people succeed. Perhaps they were born into a successful family or they had more money or they ... whatever- fill in the blank. My truth now is that people who succeed refuse to rest at failure. That is not to say that they don't fail, but that they just don't stop because of it. They stay focused on their vision and the belief that they can achieve what they want. The believe in their purpose and are ignited by the passion to become whatever it is they know they can be. Take a look at some pretty successful people in my opinion and ask yourself if they would have succeeded if they stopped along the way because of failures...
Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and started a business called Traf-O-Data which failed. He them went on to create what we all know as Microsoft... a little thanks for him not giving up?
Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper editing position before starting a number of businesses that left him bankrupt... He didn't rest at failure and I know that my daughter and I (along with the millions who flock to his empire and watch his movies and buy his toys) are very happy that he didn't rest at failure. Thank you Mr. Disney.
Albert Einstein didn't speak until he was 4 and couldn't read until he was 7... they thought he was mentally handicapped and was expelled from school. Regardless of what he was told or what obstacles entered his path, he went on to win a Nobel Prize and has become the face of genius and modern physics... thank you for not giving up Mr. Einstein.
Thomas Edison was called stupid and fired from his first two jobs. It wasn't until after failing at over 1000 attempts with the light bulb that it finally worked... thank you SO much for not giving up Mr. Edison.
Oprah Winfrey was raised in an abusive home and even fired from a reporting job early in her career. The passion and purpose she must have felt deep within prevented her from giving up and now is one of the most successful people in the world... in the world! Ms. Winfrey, you are an inspiration and I thank you for not giving up.
Steven Spielberg attempted 3 times to be accepted into the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television and was rejected all 3 times! He ended up at another school but dropped out shortly to just become a the director he knew he so passionately wanted to be... I thank very much for not giving up Mr. Spielberg.
You see, if attaining your goals and becoming successful is done by not giving up then indeed, patience are a virtue. Patience are the tool that will get you through seemingly unfortunate events, failed attempts and "rough patches" along your journey. So my question to you is this: In the pit of your being, what do you feel you are you meant to be successful at and why have you not put your passion and purpose into that equation? There is no limit to what you can have, do or be... So like Micheal Jackson said... "don't stop till you get enough"!!!!!!
So a new year is around the corner and as we look back at this past year it is a perfect time to decide if you are moving closer to your goals or not. It may be the perfect time for you to decide what goals you would like to make if you haven't already. This could be the opportunity you have been waiting for to make something happen.
There are a few things that may be helpful as you decide to make change in the upcoming weeks. They are not the traditional resolution ideas. My intent is to provide more than a list of fleeting resolutions...
Firstly, be aware that regardless of what you decide, your future is being created by you right now. Whether you do something differently or continue with the way you have been doing things, you are creating situations, opportunities and results that will reflect exactly what it is that you ARE doing. Every single moment, with every single thought and action on your part, you are moving into your next phase... your life, our lives, are constantly progressing, so be aware of this as you think about how
you would like to be living.
Secondly, I would love for you to entertain the idea of big thinking. Perhaps losing a few pounds or quitting a bad habit or making more money sounds great but what does that mean to you? Look past the thing you think you'd like to achieve or aquire and dig a little deeper. What do you want your life to be like? How do you want to spend your everyday? How would you like to feel as you navigate through your days? If, in your mind, losing weight will make you happier ask yourself why. Will it make you feel more confident? Will it make you more ready for a new job or relationship? If, in your mind, quitting a bad habit will make you more responsible or more dependable how would that feel? And money... how would it feel to have more than you need?
you want to make the change and being able to identify the feeling that you really desire makes making the change that much easier. Why? Because it is the feeling that we crave... and why do we crave that feeling? Because we believe what we feel. When you allow yourself to feel something it makes it real for us- even if just for that moment. Ever cried during a movie? A movie with actors speaking someone else's words? You cried over an actor reciting someone's script? No, you cried because you felt the feeling... you believed it and you felt it. For that moment it felt real. Have you ever seen a thin person get upset because they believe they are fat? Or a smart person complain that they feel stupid? Even though it may not seem real to you, they feel and react to that feeling.
So before you make that list of things you'd like to achieve this year (please make that list), ask yourself how you feel
about your life and decide how you would prefer to feel
in this new year. Then what? Like Nike says, just do it. Feel that feeling
. Pretend if you have to at first, and remember that every single second is creating your tomorrow. Your brain won't know you are pretending, just like when you cry at a movie... the feeling is what counts. Find ways to generate that feeling of confidence, security, joy, love... because the more you allow yourself to feel
that feeling the more you WILL be feeling that feeling and I promise your goals will be attained.
Happy New Year. Much love.
I have been working for more than a couple of years on how the brain works in relation to processing, effect and readjustment of input. Simply put my findings have been this: The distance between where you are and where you would like to be depends greatly on how you begin thinking about it. You see, how
you think about things is very important. It relates to every single thing in your world. You can't think something without thinking about it... and your thoughts provide a feeling. When you think about something you generate a feeling about it.
We can control our thoughts. It is not difficult or scary or anything else negative. It is liberating and fabulously freeing to not accept any negative attachment to what you think about. It is a possibillity for every single person to think more positively and reap the rewards of doing so.
We can direct our thoughts all day long. We do even though most of us are unaware of it. We say we want certain things to happen but we think it will be too difficult or we think someone deserves it more or hold blame on another... We say we want to make changes to improve our lives but then we think its just too hard or that maybe things aren't so bad as they are. We say we want to finish a project or start a new routine but we think why do I always procrastinate? Why is everything always so difficult?
The distance between where you are and where you would like to be depends greatly on how you begin thinking about it. Be aware of how you think about what you think about. You may have to read that sentence again so here it is... Be aware of how you think about what you think about.
If you have any experience or exposure to the law of attraction, this may come down to what you put out comes back... what you give you attract. The law is the same regardless of how
you think of it. I promise that if you begin to change how
you think about what you want or what you want to achieve or do or be, that you will get or achieve or do or be something other than you are right now. It is that simple.
My intention is to help as many people out of negative thinking and circumstances as possible. I once lived in a very dark place and now am filled with gratitude and love every single second of the day. Much love to you and yours at the conclusion of this year. Be aware. Be joyful. Be grateful. Much love.
It concerns me that many people (much like myself, once upon a time) believe that they have no control in their lives. I know that when you look around it might seem as though some people have such fabulous lives and others, well, not so much. It might seem as if bad things always happen to you, or that everything is always so difficult. You may even feel like there is no hope because things in your life have become so bad.
The good news is that you are right. What I mean by "good news" is this: WHAT you think about, and more importantly - HOW you think about it - will be what you make TRUE. It is already happening right now. Take a look at your life. Notice the aspects that you may not be in harmony with. What do you think about those areas? Hmmmm… my guess is that everything you think, feel and talk about in relation to those non-harmonious parts of your life - is negative.
On the flip side, think of the things that bring you joy. What aspects do you like about your life? How do you think about them? How do you feel about them? How do you talk about and react to them? My guess is - pretty well. Is it a coincidence that what you think of in a good way is good and what you think of in a negative way is negative?
I have lived and experienced most of my life being led blindly by my feelings. Well, at least that is what I thought, anyway. The truth that so many of us don’t know or don't realize is that our thoughts create our feelings. We can’t feel anything that we don’t think about first. We, in fact, feel what we feel because of what and how we think about it first.
There was a time that I believed, with all of my being, that life was dark and people were bad. I was letting negative thinking hold me captive in negativity. I believed I was a victim. Today, I know without a single doubt, that life is beautiful and people are filled with love. I am grateful that everyday I have the unbelievable opportunity to teach people how to think positively; to help them transform from victims of negative thought into people consciously in control of their lives, attracting good things with good thoughts. Doing so allows their entire lives - like mine - to become positive.
I challenge you to try it today. You have nothing to lose but negativity.
