Day 3: Seeing the Good

My first introduction to the self-growth and personal development field was nearly twenty-five years ago while working a temporary job at a major book publishing company. Boxes of new titles arrived at the office weekly, and among them were newly released offerings by Louise Hay and Susan Jeffers.  I learned about the importance of positive thought and mindset and intention as I was in the midst of making – let’s just call them “questionable”  – major life choices.

Fast forward a good number of personal growth books, courses, and affirmations later, and I became a mom for the first time at the ripe old age of 29.  My own mother had given birth to me (her only child) at 41, a fact which I was to regard with some awe and much greater respect later in life.  I remember thinking at 45, “I can’t imagine having a 4 year-old at this point.”

Motherhood dramatically changed the way I looked at life and the possibilities ahead. After my daughter was born (four years after her older brother), I left their biological father and began a new chapter.  I remember journalling every day until there were no more tears left to cry, releasing all of the anger and grief I felt at losing the dream of our happy family.  It never really was, though…I recall the peace I felt when he finally moved away to another province and left us to rebuild our lives.

I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty upbeat person and I continued to work on positive affirmations and goal-setting.  But I didn’t experience as much success as I’d hoped for – I allowed a lack of support from my then-partner to tank my network marketing business, I gained a LOT of weight, and I came to a point where I needed to rethink my whole outlook and lifestyle.  I left my job and started a virtual assistant business for coaches (after being introduced to coaching through bartering my services for free coaching sessions.)  I learned a great deal about the law of attraction, the business of coaching and the steps for success. Around that time I also discovered Abraham-Hicks, whose uplifting message absolutely resonated for me then – and still does today!

But even though I “knew” intellectually what was required for success in health, relationships and wealth, and I had done a personal excavation and was (at least somewhat) aware of what was holding me back, I didn’t experience the success I was seeking.  After long years of study and application I was still doing battle with debilitating fears that kept me playing small.  “Not smart enough, not good enough, just NOT ENOUGH” was the mantra I would hear every time I attempted to step outside of my comfort zone.  I isolated myself and wondered why, no matter how great my desire, I couldn’t translate theory to reality.

Truthfully, it wasn’t until I allowed myself to seek soulful support – which specifically helped me transform my long-held fears and blockages – that things really began to shift.  I began to understand how to actually put into practice the concepts I’d learned, and how to finally release the limitations that I’d permitted to hold me captive for so long.  The incredible changes that have taken place in my life in the last couple of years  (and the last few months in particular) have left me feeling as though I’m living in an entirely different Universe.

And despite the sometimes rocky journey it took to get here, I’m seeing the good in all things.

And so, I believe,  can you.

How To Manifest Your Desires in Ease and Joy

“You are a visionary. And of course it is lovely to be an actionary too. But if you will let your vision be real and full and you find full alignment with it before you take action — then the effort that you offer is always joyful, fulfilling, satisfying effort.  

And so, keep telling the “manager” what you want. Not because the manager (called Law of Attraction) needs to hear it, but because every time you talk about it, and every time you come into vibrational harmony with your own desire — you open your vortex of allowing so that the Universe can yield to you a little bit more of what it already knows you want.

You are all working much too hard at all of this. It goes like this: You are wonderful beings. You are blessed beings. You are deserving of Well-being. Well-being is on its way to you. Chill out and let it in. Play more. Do the Hokey Pokey. Someone gave Jerry and Esther a little note: “Wouldn’t it be funny if it turned out that the Hokey Pokey is what it’s all about?” It turns out, it is. It is!”

~ Abraham-Hicks

Do you (like me) ever have the annoying feeling that you really don’t know WHAT you’re supposed to be DOING to create the life of your dreams?  You may have have an initial (or even fully developed) vision of your desired manifestation – whether it’s improved relationships, health and wellness, finances, or creating your perfect business.

I used to spend a lot of time trying to figure out why it was important for me to do the things my ego was telling me I “needed” to do, and what actions I needed to take to get there, so I could be “successful” and “abundant.”   And yet, I was so resistant to those things that I felt I “had” to do that I was essentially stuck and going nowhere.

About a year ago, I was introduced to a powerful, soulful process that allowed me to transform each and every aspect of my life.

Prior to that time I had a clear understanding of the law of attraction, but no way to apply it consistently – and to be mindful of exactly how it was operating in my life.  I began my journey of personal growth around the time my son was born (he’s 20 now) with reading Susan Jeffers’ “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway”, which led to reading a number of books about the law of attraction, and ultimately to Abraham-Hicks amazing teachings.

I was able to manifest some fantastic trips and close friendships, but although I embraced the law of attraction and used affirmations quite successfully in some areas of my life, it seemed that I was unable to establish a healthy financial flow or create harmonious relationships with my children.  I was supporting myself doing work  that was not as satisfying and fulfilling to me as I desired, and I felt I was playing small and not living up to my potential.  I often felt anxious and worried about my children, my finances, and my future.

Since that time, using this process has allowed me to manifest:

  • The  outpouring of support that I received (including an unexpected $700 to  pay for the flight) to be with my son — who survived getting hit by a vehicle traveling 50mph last March;
  • The  opportunity to demonstrate the power of focused intention to my son –   as we went through the day dealing with paperwork & bureaucracy to get him the support he needed…it all went smoothly and easily and even though it didn’t look like it in the morning, he ended up with a check at the end of the day and thanked me for all my efforts on his behalf  and told me how much he enjoyed spending time with me, AND he acknowledged how easily everything flowed, and we talked about  consciously creating that in our lives;
  • Feeling calm and centered and clear about my next steps; prior to using this process I always seemed to be in confusion and overwhelm; this process helped me to focus on the moment, and I began to be more receptive to hearing my inner guidance;
  • Moving to a much brighter and more spacious apartment; I had been living in a very small 2 bedroom apartment and was feeling cramped and unhappy… through the process I became very clear about what it was that I wanted and I manifested a lovely new place with virtually ALL of the details I had visualized;
  • Greater energy and ease; prior to using this process I was frequently anxious and worried, and though I tried very hard to be positive, I always felt as though something was missing (or wrong with me) that I couldn’t seem to manifest what I so desperately wanted.  This process opened my eyes to the ease of manifesting in peace and joy;
  • Vastly improved relationships with my children; prior to using this process I was truly undergoing what felt like parenthood from hell – my 14 year old daughter was staying out all night for days at a time, the police were involved, she was in a youth detention center twice, and our communication was nil.  My son was essentially homeless and feeling desperate in a city 2400 miles away, and I did not have the resources to assist him.  Using this process allowed me to create much better relationships with my children and see them as whole, healthy and happy…trusting that they are on their Divine path and that All is Well.  I am overcome with joy when I reflect on how I have manifested exactly what I envisioned – joyful, uplifting, harmonious relationships with my children (who are now both living in the same city as me);
  • More than anything, increased TRUST and COURAGE to follow my inner guidance/intuition.  Before using this process I was frequently worried, anxious and frustrated, wondering why everyone else was able to manifest their desires – but not me.   The process  has shown me how to access higher guidance and know that no matter what, I am loved, protected and safe.  This process has been the difference in my life that has allowed me to forgive myself for my ‘mistakes’ and appreciate the gifts in every situation, while feeling that I am continually refining my vibrational stance to be in alignment with Source.

I’m going to be honest…it  was challenging to commit to doing the process daily, and sometimes it was challenging to remember to do the process when things seemed to be going really well.

But the process provided me with SO many insights about myself…my  “stories” about my self-worth, talents and abilities surfaced as I used the process daily…that I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t smart enough, wasn’t talented enough, just wasn’t ‘enough’ period – and I believed that was why I was broke, frustrated, and unable to manifest my heart’s desires.   The process blessed me with awareness of how these beliefs affected my life on a day-to-day basis and through this process I was able to release  stories that no longer served me, as I moved into greater alignment with  my true desires.

The outstanding value of of this process is that it is SIMPLE, it creates crystal clarity around your desires, and creates the space to
allow you to recognize exactly how easy it is to create your ideal reality.  This process teaches clarity, commitment, persistence, how to deal with “vagrants” (contrast), and how to effectively tune  into your intuition/Divine guidance.

It’s my honor and pleasure to coach others in the use of this method, because I know that anyone who is willing to commit to the process can create miracles in their life, and we all deserve to have the tools to move closer to our true, Divinely-inspired desires and live the life of our dreams here and now.

My mission is to assist people to re-connect with Source by helping them tune into what  feels GOOD to them, and this process is  is the perfect vehicle for that!

If you are:

  • Feeling frustrated and unfulfilled and stuck  – even though others may consider you ‘successful’?
  • Experiencing grief or loss?
  • Tired of trying and failing with other manifestation methods?
  • Ready for passion & purpose & JOY in your life?
  • Willing to commit yourself to the process of expansion and growth?
  • Wanting to make a positive difference in this world?
  • Feeling your soul’s calling to brilliance and greatness?

If you are ready to learn exactly how to open the vortex of your magnificent manifestations, I’d be delighted to coach you through this truly transformational process that I have personally used to revolutionize every aspect of my life.

In a single month of personal coaching in the use of this process you will experience:

  • Soulful, transformational coaching along the path to manifesting your heart’s desires;
  • Daily support (weekdays)
  • Connection with your inner guidance
  • How to allow yourself to manifest your heart’s desires (improved health, relationships, finances, everything!)

*NOTE: As of May 3rd, 2011, I am currently offering one month of coaching sessions at significantly reduced rates in the initial stages of my coaching practice…I am looking for enthusiastic and committed clients, and I currently have just four spots available at 75% OFF the regular rate!

If you are eager to connect with your JOY, PURPOSE, and PASSION, I’d be happy to schedule a free 20-minute session to answer any questions you may have about the process, me, and whether this is an aligned energetic investment for you…please contact me here:

An Affirmation Formula for Intentionally Raising Your Vibration

Less than a week until All Hallow’s Eve…I bet there are a few ghosts and goblins haunting your neck of the woods, waiting for the big day.

Great news! A special event you don’t want to miss…
You have probably heard that researchers say we only use about 10% of our brain, a very low number!  Imagine the amazing things we could accomplish if we tapped into the other 90% of our brain?  Or even if were able to utilize even 20% of our brains?  Powerful thought, isn’t it?
So, the other day my friend and colleague Anisa Aven emailed to let me know that she (along with 11 others!) is taking part in this fantastic Law of Attraction eventClick Here

They are hosting a twelve week teleseminar series on the Law of Attraction.  They’ve lined up twelve of the leading law of attraction experts to teach us how to attract serious wealth and prosperity into our lives.Now here is the best part about the series, it doesn’t cost a thing to listen to the calls!  So of course I’ve signed up for the 12 week series, and I’d love to ‘see’ you there as well.  Click on the link below to check it out:Click Here

On another note, I’m excited to be doing some advertising on Spotabusiness.com (if you decide to apply – it’s F*RE*E – please let them know I referred you!) and also with StarDoves.com.  As always, my appreciation to YOU for sharing this journey with me!

See below for an article from Anisa Aven on ‘An Affirmation Formula for Intentionally Raising Your Vibration’… Enjoy!  Wishing you a peaceful, productive, and joyous week!

An Affirmation Formula for Intentionally Raising Your Vibration by Anisa Aven

 

Here’s an affirmation formula that I’ve developed for my clients that literally walks you up the vibrational map, from negativity to peace.My formula was inspired by Dr. David Hawkin’s monumental work (Levels of Human Consciousness) in his book, Power VS. Force. I’ve indicated the level of consciousness (LoC) of each step to the right below. Without getting into too much detail here, let me just state that 200, the level of courage, is the first positive level of consciousness.Anything less than a consciousness level of 200, and what you really want CANNOT manifest. Therefore, use this formula to walk yourself up from a consciousness that is unproductive and limiting to a consciousness (and vibration) that actually has the energetic potential to create what you really want in your life.

1. IDENTIFY WHAT YOU WANT. (LOC 125)
2. HAVE A SPIRITUAL TEMPER-TANTRUM! ( LOC 150)
3. PULL UP YOUR BOOTSTRAPS. (LOC 175-200)
4. BE WILLING & SURRENDER. ( LOC 250-310)
5. ACCEPT THE ESSENCE OF YOUR DESIRE NOW. (LOC 350-400)
6. EXPRESS & SHARE GRATITUDE, JOYFUL DELIGHT AND LOVE (LOC > 400)

I’ve applied the formula to the “negative environment” situation below. As you’re reading the following, notice how the affirmations literally alter your energy from a weaker attractor field (frustration) to a stronger attractor field (joy and peace) with each step.

1 – IDENTIFY WHAT YOU WANT. (LOC 125)

“What do I want?” What do I believe this “desire” will give to me that I don’t now have, or that I want more of?

EXAMPLE: “I want to feel better. I want to experience Peace in my home. I want LOVE, COMPASSION, and OPTIMISM. I want harmony now!”

2 – HAVE A SPIRITUAL TEMPER-TANTRUM! (LOC 150)

Put your foot down! Refuse to put any further attention upon negative, limited, or self-righteous thoughts that only add to the problem.

EXAMPLE: “That’s it!!!! I’ve had enough! I put my foot down on my part in this problem. I put my foot down on negative thoughts. I refuse to engage in the negativity from this point forward.”

3 – PULL UP YOUR BOOTSTRAPS. (LOC 175-200)

Muster your courage and be proud of yourself.

EXAMPLE: “I am proud of myself. I am capable of doing anything I put my mind to. If there has ever been anyone on this planet that has done this before, then I can do it too. I AM Courageous. I AM Bold. I courageously do what needs to be done with zest and enthusiasm. I courageously and openly choose to face whatever may be necessary to create health, vitality, peace and harmony NOW! I choose to be courageously intentional with my thoughts.”

4 – BE WILLING & SURRENDER. (LOC 250-310)

Breathe in a willingness to be open, make mistakes, and be accepting and SurRender to the Divine Order of life.

EXAMPLE: “I AM willing to get it wrong. I AM willing to make mistakes; take risks; screw things up. I AM willing to have this be easy. I AM Willing to do what needs to be done. I AM willing to focus on the positive. I AM willing to be responsible for all of my experiences from this point forward. I AM neutral. I confidently surrender to the Divine Order of life, and whatever happens, happens for a reason. I choose to be at Peace with it, now and from this point forward. I SurRender to the worst case scenario – if that happens, so be it – I’ll survive. I SurRender to the best case scenario – if that happens, so be it – I’ll survive. I AM Willing. I AM Neutral. I completely and totally trust in the Divine Plan and let it go now!”

5 -ACCEPT THE ESSENCE OF YOUR DESIRE NOW. (LOC 350-400)

What you want is already yours – accept it, now.

EXAMPLE: “I choose to put my attention on the experience of PEACE in my home. I intend to feel at peace no matter what my external circumstances. I choose Love. I intend to be LOVING even when those around me cannot choose it. I choose JOY. I intend to be joyous even in the face of negativity. I choose compassion. I intend to be compassionate at all cost. I accept Peace now. I live the essence of peace in all that I do. I accept Peace as my experience now. I anticipate it. I embrace it. I now SEE joy in my home. I now SEE LOVE all around me. I now SEE PEACE. I expect this to be my experience from this point forward. I trust that it is a SURE THING. I trust the Universe to deliver PEACE to me now and I anticipate it fully. Reason tells me that the Universal Law of Attraction works in ALL cases, therefore if I want it, and allow it – it is. I embrace this truth now and let it go. Reason also tells me that the Universe is impartial; therefore, if it has ever been created by anyone else on this planet then it is now manifesting for me as well. I embrace this and stand strong on the scientifically proven truth that like energy seeks like energy. I therefore accept Peace in my home and I embrace PEACE as my primary mode of operation. I AM Peace, therefore I experience Peace. ”

6 – EXPRESS & SHARE GRATITUDE, JOYFUL DELIGHT AND LOVE (LOC >400)

Supercharge your vibration and desire with gratitude and the ultimate vibration of love.

EXAMPLE: “I am grateful to now completely and totally experience peace in my home and with my family. Joy fills my heart and I revel in the overflow of love that permeates my every experience. I am sublime. I see where I can express and share love and I do so easily now. I am loving. I am joyous. I am grateful.”

This 6-tiered formula can be applied in any situation and especially when you KNOW you’re really ready to transcend lower level negativity. It was designed to take our energy (the vibrational attractor field that we are presently engaged in) and intentionally walk us up to a stronger, more powerful and intentional attractor field; one more in alignment with what we really want.

Most instructions for “affirmations” suggest simply saying, “I already have this.” This instruction still applies IF you can sincerely believe what you’re affirming. However, the reason most people have little to no success with affirmations is because they simply by-pass their true beliefs and feelings about a subject and their vibration simply can’t jump the canyon!

Affirmations are powerful tools for manifesting your dreams. When used to change a belief like in the above example, they become one of the most powerful provisions we have for rapid growth and personal fulfillment.

Peace reigns supreme, now!

“The stream will carry you. All you’ve got to do, is let go of the oars. All you’ve got to do is stop the resistance, which means stop the justifying, stop the defending, stop the haranguing, stop the incessant complaining, stop beating the drum of what you don’t want. But most important, make a decision that you care how you feel. And don’t be willing to put up with feelings that don’t feel good.It’s amazing how willing you are to feel so much worse than you really should feel. The movies you choose. The things you watch on television. The things you say about each other! The disrespect that you have for yourself! … You use so many excuses to separate yourself from Who You Are.We want to enliven you to the conscious awareness that you’re supposed to feel good. And that Who You Really Are DOES feel really good. We want you to feel the thrill bumps and the goose bumps that are always present when you come into alignment. We want you to feel the clarity and stamina and vigorous nature of your being.”
