About loalover

I Am just blogging about my observations of the Law of Attraction at work in my life and how an attitude of gratitude and a constant commitment to personal growth actually impacts on the way I experience my physical existence.

Be your authentic personal brand

I have been reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s book “Crush It”. I first downloaded his new book “Crushing It”, which I am loving by the way but something made me read the sample of Crush it on Sunday and I wanted to continue so bought the whole book.

Honestly, I was telling myself “No more books !!” And honestly I was a little anxious about finances and fulfilling my obligations in this short month and then honestly I have been working on my mindset regarding my lack mentality so reminded myself, telling myself not to buy the book wasn’t sending the right messages to the Universe about abundance beliefs so a downloading I go.

But the above is just an authentic blurting of the prequel to this post and the source of its inspiration.

So I am sat in my shop. I have set myself up for my day. I have gotten my little craft boxes out that I required for my tasks and I have chosen a podcast to listen to from the “The Science of Happiness” podcast and I start creating a veil for a Bride Duck and then the bliss hit me.

I love anything to do with small, fine detail. I go into my zone working on anything intricate and this combined with the podcast I felt overwhelmed with Gratitude.

How lucky am I to get to do what I love and love what I do … or is it luck?


If you have read any of my posts before you may know my favourite quite is –

“Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen”

Ralph Waldo Emerson .            

And that I made a goal card inspired by Bob Proctor nearly 2 years ago

(My actual Goal Card which I still read daily)

And now I have a shop where I make bespoke and readymade hand painted wooden ducks to sell either through the shop, online or Facebook (@shabbychicducks) that came about through a Universal effortless alignment of events.

I was reading “Crush It” and Gary discussed your personal brand and your passion and authenticity and are you in a job that doesn’t allow you your personal voice and long before I knew about Gary Vee I had a daily affirmation about being able to in a position where I could be 100% authentic to myself as I found it hard to be employed in roles or personal positions where I couldn’t be authentic and boom here I am sitting being able to be 100% authentic, living my goal card and then it struck me … blog it.

You see my ultimate passion is writing and helping people believe that anything is possible with the ‘Right Thinking’.

Last night I had a thought while reading Gary’s incredible book and then I have this experience and this incredible urge to write about it and that ain’t no accident Baby …. that’s the Universe in action and another goal card coming into physical manifestation.

Remember – Law of Attraction practitioners say “Focus on what you do want, not what you don’t want”

Happy Manifesting Beautiful People x

Make Goals not Resolutions

On the 10th of April 2016 inspired by Bob Proctor I made 2 Goal Cards from simple badge laminates I bought from Ebay and some pictures I made by using a simple phone app and put them in my purse to read them often.

April 11th 2016 around 07:30am I slipped carrying out a simple household chore and broke my leg in 3 places meaning I was laid up and had to miss my daughters Wedding and Dream Holiday all rolled into one as I needed an operation and couldn’t fly.

I refused to be beaten but didn’t read my goal cards frequently as I wasn’t accessing my purse very often but fast forward to 2017.

Despite my haphazard approach to reading my goal cards or carrying out anything with detailed consistency the Universe Conspired and much of what was on those goal cards manifested and what hasn’t completely manifested is already in the pipeline for 2018 amongst many things that weren’t written on goal cards but in my daily affirmations and my “My definiteness of persistent purpose” statement that I also didn’t do/read on a consistent basis but has given me the best year of my life to date and more vigour and excitement for the year ahead than I have ever had previously.

My point being. If I could create all this without consistent effort. Imagine what I could achieve if I really truly focused so that is why I gifted myself a Christmas present of a goal setting session with a brilliant Mindset Coach and friend Rebecca Adams from which in itself set up potential fulfilment of more goals by default.

So lets not pussy foot around with 2018. Lets not set namby pamby resolutions. Let’s take ownership of 2018 and claim it as ours and set definite goals we WILL achieve.

Hears to a fantastic future and an Awesome New Year.

Much Love and over an out for 2017 and see you in the most exceptional year of your life 😉

The only New Year’s resolution that really matters

Before you embark on any New Years Resolution read this. Particularly story 3. Living proof that it is Mindset over Matter !!

Pam Grout

“We physicians and scientists have nothing to lose by a reexamination of fundamental assumptions of our models of health: on the contrary, we face the extraordinary possibility of fashioning a system that emphasizes life instead of death, and unity and oneness instead of fragmentation, darkness and isolation. –Larry Dossey, M.D.

According to the Wall Street Journal, 132 million Americans (that’s 41 percent) will make a New Year’s resolution. A good quarter of those potentially life-changing commitments will have something to do with diet and health.

But here’s the rub—most of what we know about diet and health is incorrect. It’s a series of beliefs that we’ve all agreed upon and therefore reproduce in physical reality. These beliefs about our physicality are placeholders until we can, as Dr. Dossey suggests, fashion a new system.

Which is why I’m going to tell you three stories that not only defy our beliefs…

It’s Exponential Baby !!!


The other day the Universe threw a book at me. Well a book fell out of the cupboard on to my head.

You choose its origins.

The book was Tony Robbins “Notes from a Friend” and it was in physical form (which is rare for me these days) because I couldn’t buy it in ‘E’ form.

I can’t remember where I heard about it and when I bought it but I knew I had only read the first few pages when my life changed exponentially and it went on the back burner, slash top cupboard.

Instinct said take it with you and read a lesson a day. Something that stuck with me in one of those pages was “Gods delays are not Gods denials. I read this previously and may have blogged on it but it has more resonance today than it did before.

Then it was ‘I hope so’, today it is a ‘I know so !!”

I have been reading self help for 2 decades and studying The Law of Attraction since 2011 and I must admit, hands up there have been many an hour I felt “I can’t get this”, “What am I doing wrong” “Why does it work for others and not for me?” on a big scale I mean because I can manifest the small stuff like a boss.

But then I had one of those pow, pow, pow moments (I know I have blogged about them).

It’s true. Gods delays or the Universe’s delays are not its denials.

My life has changed so much in 2017 that sometimes my head is in a whirlwind of how fantastic it all is and 2018 is shaping up to go stratospheric. Because of opportunities I took I am now connected with so many incredible people that has led to more opportunities and I am “Hey this is amazing. These people are my people. They do the things I have been doing on my own for years. I am doing things I have dreamed about, meditated on and written affirmations on.

“Ahhh Hello Sister, this is them coming to fruition proving Gods delays are not Gods denials.

I just wanted to write this post to say that I am living proof that no affirmation is ever wasted and every day dream is definitely the seedling of reality even if it doesn’t feel like it at this present moment so aff, aff, aff how you would like your life to be and be grateful and say thank you today because its on its way.

Whoa it’s been so long !!!!


April 2016 while listening to Bob Proctor “Born Rich” video’s on YouTube nearly everyday I decided to make some goal cards.

Which I did and promptly broke my leg and forgot about my goal cards that I had placed in my purse.

Whilst laid up I started writing a book that was really a living breathing documentation of was I able to achieve my goals by following the path of least resistance, applying the Law of Attraction, visualising etc.

Well fast forward to nearly the end of November 2017 my life has changed so exponentially I have neither had time to write that book or hardly ever blog.

I have kept meaning to blog what has happened but it would just take to long and I haven’t got the time. I am working longer hours than I have ever worked and more days than I have ever worked but it feels wrong to write the word “WORK” as it doesn’t feel like work.

One of my goal cards said:


My favourite quote is in the picture above and the Universe certainly did conspire because I have a successful online craft business that also ventured into a shop in September and the response is phenomenal and how it all came about was a magnificent series of events that the Universe stitched together seamlessly and effortlessly just like I was on the path of least resistance.

Thats not mentioning all the other miraculous things that have happened to me in 2017 like being involved in an International Interview Series with amazing entrepreneurs but that is a story for another day 😉

Thank you Louise Hay for all that you have given me x

I did try to find a blog post I did that included this video to re-share as a tribute to Louise Hay but it doesn’t want to be found so this is a new post and an opportunity to say Good Bye from this earthly plane to a woman that inspired me so much and changed my life for the better.

Louise was my go to lady for so many situations, positive negative (definitely negative), health wise and inspirationally.

I used Louise’s book to help visualising me passing my driving test. I referred to her books when I had pain to establish what it was telling me and the youtube video  belowI listened to over and over again via the youtube app on my phone while I drove to a job I hated to inspire to attract the life I desired but what inspired me the most and kept me going when times were hard was the age Louise was when she started her publishing house because I haven’t reached that age yet so anything is possible for me.

I am grateful that while you are physically gone Dear Louise we have the technology today to access your wisdom anywhere at any time.

Sometimes I need it like a hammer on my head !!

I didn’t get it until I got this.

I’d read self-help books since the late 90’s but it wasn’t until I watched this film and read the book of the same name in 2010 I got it.

So if I got it why do I some times need a huge reminder to get it?

A long time ago I acknowledged if I saw something 3 times it was the Universe trying to get me to sit up and take notice so why oh why wasn’t I getting this message?

Plain and simple = Arrogance !!

Last week a like minded friend came round and we discussed books etc and the book “The Secret” came up. I’d recommended this book to so many people in and after 2010 when it came into my awareness but hadn’t thought or spoke of it in a long time.

I have habit of watching motivational material on YouTube and yesterday on ‘recommended’ the first thing that came up was the full length movie “The Secret”.

And today there is was again and I’d like to say it was the third time round trick that got my awareness ……. nah, in my head I was saying “I don’t need to watch that, I know all that. I’ve watched it read it years ago. I’ve moved on” but the Universe had other plans.

I swear I clicked off it to move on to another ‘Recommended’ that caught my eye however the film started playing any how and I am so glad it did.

Sometimes it seems we have to just get over our arrogance and say “Hey, why not. Let’s give this a rerun and see what it can teach us or remind us a second, third or even fourth time around”

What it the Universe trying to knock you over the head with that you are ignoring ? xx 🙂
