Recently I haven’t been myself. I have not felt like reading (my passion) or writing (my other passion). Most unlike me and I haven’t taken part in any of my daily inspirational rituals.
Yesterday I had an unexpected bad day and not wanting to repeat the process decided to listen to some inspiring material on my commute which reminded me to send love out to even the most difficult encounter.
The day was definitely much more enjoyable than the previous affair and reading some articles later in the day one made a light bulb go Ping above my head.
Since learning of The Law of Attraction in 2010 I may not physically be living the life of my dreams (yet) but having bad days are extremely rare and feel so uncomfortable now they are not something I want to repeat in a hurry and so rare I can’t remember the last time I had one which Pre reading ‘The Secret’ / LOA was the exact opposite when nearly every day felt like a bad day and the good days were rare and life was so overwhelming many many times I felt ‘I Give Up’
But now …. Thanks to learning about the concepts of The Law of Attraction and Quantum Physics-
I might not be where I hope to be but I ain’t giving up on me.
I have to admit I haven’t ever finished reading Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz but what I have read I can totally relate to and one day I promise myself I will complete it and recommend it to everyone.
I was born with a serious bowl condition that was so serious that it only came to light when it killed me at 6 weeks old. Yes it actually made my heart stop. As with everyone The Law of Attraction was working in my life before I ever knew it existed. My mum is religious and tells me the tale how the doctor came to tell her that he had never known a female child ever survive of my condition and suggested to call the minister. I was Christened on the operating table. My heart stopped during the operation and as my Mum (bless her) sat in the corridor alone she prayed and says at that point she felt a calmness come over her and the energy in the corridor changed and she knew then with 100% Faith that I would be OK and with that she heard me cry.
I like the imagines that I have seen recently where people have been wearing things like their colostomy bags loud and proud for the world to see and it makes me want to shout “Hallelujah” because since that operation I have worn a large scar on my abdomen loud and proud because every time I see it reminds me how short my life could have been and am grateful for so many things I have been able to experience since that date.
However as a teen I was very, very close to taking my own life from the emotional pain of bullying. I felt physically sick at the thought of going to school and being constantly reminded how ugly I was but again thankfully LOA stepped in. I was already considering and planning how I could end the pain when a series of events went into action. Thinking back, again without knowing the power of the Universe I think I gave it a ultimatium something like “You need to do something quick to stop this pain or I’m outta here !”
Last night I learnt of the book “The Cosmic Ordering Service” by the late Barbel Mohr and I realise now I had put in a Cosmic Order and I wasn’t let down.
The outcome was, to try to make it short our new family dentist sent me to a specialist puzzled by my unusually high tooth decay after their tests hadn’t identified the reason. Further tests found facial defects internally and this specialist had just pioneered some facial corrective surgery and asked if I was willing to try? Before the actually surgery I underwent 2 years preparational orthodontic treatment and eventually at 16 had a 9 and half hour operation however my life changed the minute I knew I was going to have the operation and the bully’s never bothered me again. I don’t mean I necessarily stopped being bullied but I didn’t let it affect me any more.
Maxwell Maltz was a plastic surgeon and his book is about how he noticed the difference in some of his patients after surgery however for some of his patients it had no effect what so ever and this interested him. For me both of my Operations changed my out look on life and one changed my life two years before it even happened and that’s why I relate to Maxwell’s material.
This morning I came across this article accidentally about photo-shopping:
It is so sad that there are so many cases of eating disorders but even the article says that photo shopped images are not necessarily to blame because an individuals attitude towards the images contributes but this YouTube link contained in the article still shocked me what they actually do.
My current favourite car dancing tune is Meghan Trainer – All About The Base. But as well as loving the tune I love the message and it makes me love myself even more. I actually celebrate my curves as I bop along to the lyrics and I have downloaded it. Maybe it will be my new morning ‘Happy’ song but not just yet because Nina Simone “Feeling Good” is currently on the agenda for tomorrow.
I have already blogged that I recently came across the book “Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends” on It by Kamal Ravikant and say “I Love Myself” over and over again as many times as I can physically remember to do it so if YOU aren’t loving your self say “I Love Myself, I Love Myself” NOW or by the books I mentioned because today’s media’s beauty is all an illusion and your are already Beautiful
Over the last couple days I have heard/read two people who both state that there are never-ending possibilities despite us human beings thinking we miss opportunities, that our ship has sailed, we missed the boat but they both separately and systematically said there is ALWAYS another boat, and another and another. Every artificial minute of every artificial day …. being that time doesn’t exist and we invented it. So of course there is going to be limitless opportunities and unlimited possibilities as it is all happening right NOW.
They both said every single second, 24/7 we are being guided and actually both used the same terminology and said our job is to look for the bread crumbs laid out for us. Follow those little nudges from the Universe, listen to our intuition, acknowledge those synchronistic events that make you go “Woah, that’s spooky”. They are leading us where we want to be.
As I recalled this fact of 24/7 messages are coming our way, breadcrumbs are being laid down for us I looked around my working environment and thought ‘what breadcrumbs are here for me now?’ and with that I picked up a label that part of its ID code was LOA (Law of Attraction).
My working day was nearly done and a short time later I am kicking back on my sofa with evening meal on my lap and decide to watch a Catch-up program from the planner and one of the conversations on the TV was with Sir David Attenborough and as I looked up at the TV and said to my partner “What a wonderful life he has had” the TV presenter said “But you weren’t originally the person to present the program were you?” Sir David replied “No not at all, the person who was meant to present it got really ill about a week before the program and they said you’ll have to do it.” There’s synchronicity for you.
My current world view may not be exactly as I envisage .. Yet!! but knowing there are new boats sailing into my harbour every minute and bread crumbs with my name on them waiting to be picked up makes every morning a far more exciting prospect of potential miracles waiting to happen.
I wrote this post really quickly and meant to write something about synchronicity and Carl Yung and then forgot. Think the Universe was trying to tell me something when I saw this picture later
I am currently part-taking in Experiment #1 ‘The Boogie-Woogie Corollary’ in Pam Grout’s new book E:Cubed which briefly involves Game 1: start the day on a happy track, pump the sky in glee, pretend to be a Latin American soccer player scoring a goal and do the Harlem Shuffle and salute the sun. Game 2: Ask for your own personal cosmic joke and game 3: Be grateful for everything.
I always aim to be grateful for everything and since I have recently returned from a lovely holiday I am re-appreciating how lucky I am for the life partner I have and I told them that fact last night.
Unexpectedly I was woken by my partner with breakfast in bed and when they opened the blinds I could see what a beautiful morning it was. Celebrate the sun !!!
This reminded me to start the day with a happy track and the happiest track I could think of was ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams followed by ‘Jump in the Line’ by Harry Belafonte which made me do my Latin American Harlem Shuffle whilst still in bed !!
My busy Sunday involved finding my iPhone 5 box because I admit it, I am a geek freak and have upgraded to a 6, buy some PC speakers for work and get the car cleaned.
I looked on-line for PC speakers and then decided to route around in the attic before I had a shower. I was failing miserably to find the phone box and just as I was about to give up I saw a carrier bag catching my eye that said “Look inside me !!” …………………. no I didn’t find the phone box but I found some PC speakers that I never knew I even had ?!! Oh my goodness Universe you are good !! Cosmic Joke.
But the Universe as I call it or the FP (Field of Potentiality as Pam calls it) hadn’t stopped there, it was on a role.
Since we have returned from our holiday we have noticed the cloth roof of our car is looking greenish and slightly mildewy. Prior to going to the car wash I looked on-line at ways of removing it. Various products were recommended and intended to purchase on my return because following manufacturing guidelines I don’t let the car wash guys clean it.
At the car wash one of the employees was unusually friendly and commented at the end of the wash that I would need to do something about the roof soon. To try to cut a long story shortish I mentioned the manufacturer guidelines and my on-line search and he asked what I had found he then asked did I have some extra time and went inside and found some special product and gave my car roof his undivided attention for another half an hour and asked if I could return next week where he would check if it needed another and then put a special protector on it and when I went to pay he didn’t even charge me any extra .. obviously I was very grateful for this unexpected little miracle and tipped him accordingly as he has saved me money, time and effort. Boy FP your good but just to put the icing on the cake …………………
We decided to travel out to a local restaurant for our evening meal to end the weekend and previously I had been catching up on Pam Grouts blog where I read a guest post of someone who had done the Red Pill Corollary which involved hearing one of your favourite teenage songs. The guest poster had explained they loved Prince (who doesn’t) and how she heard “Raspberry Beret” her actual fave Prince song. As we got in the car the DJ came on the radio and said “Next up we have Raspberry Beret by Prince”.
Well now FP only one Cosmic Joke was required. I think you are just plain showing off now !!!!!
The other week I watched a Super Soul Sunday where the contributor spoke of how you can get anger out of your system in 60 seconds. Just breath gently and think of something else and you can get rid of anger. It’s our choice to feel angry and we can simply just decide not to be angry. I liked this thought and have been practising it.
Making a choice about a situation and labelling it good or bad echoes what I have learnt from one of my favourite authors Greg Kuhn and another bit of Greg I like to think about while I aim to do practices of learning to enhance my personal experience is that ‘I Am Growing a Greater me’ which happens aptly to be the name of his new book, well almost its “Grow a Greater You”.
Inspiringly Greg openly admits that he to practices the advise he is giving to others and that he is not perfect and has bad days. I felt good reading that but not in a disparaging way, just that it makes me feel OK to be human and not always being on top of my game too but my greatest shock was from another Super Soul Sunday when Oprah whilst interviewing a minister openly admitted to not being able to get a handle on not getting annoyed with people who do things that frustrate her and the peace-loving minister said “Me too”. I just thought if there are two people who would have this sussed one is Oprah and the other was a God-loving man.
I am far more sorted than I have ever been in my whole life in getting a handle on being frustrated or angry but feel I am not succeeding in other areas.
Sometimes it just helps to know that people who we may assume have it all worked out still have work to do on themselves as do everyone and you may be doing far better than you assume you are and it is OK to be Imperfectly Perfect
On a mission to help others create a life of freedom and joy using the Law of Attraction
