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.
Hands Up !! Maybe it’s not PC but I am a fan of the reality TV show “I’m a Celebrity? Get me out of Here”.
So at 9pm my Partner and I settled down for our daily dose.
I’m not really a fan of other reality TV shows but until recently there was another reality star who left the jungle saying it was hell and the hardest thing they had to do and I know in my pursuit of personal growth for my best interests I shouldn’t judge or get frustrated but another ‘Hands Up’. I found myself getting annoyed with this person wondering where had they been because the show has been transmitted for over a decade and it is common practice that the contestants get transported to the Jungle by helicopter that they also normally have to jump out of said helicopter yet this person couldn’t even take off in the helicopter without a panic attack.
Because of their inability to take the helicopter trip they didn’t have to partake in the challenges their fellow camp mates had too, such as jumping out of said helicopter or Zip Wire in pitch blackness across a deep dark ravine however they incessantly complained how difficult the whole scenario was and after 3 days with no ‘Trails’ stated the infamous “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here”.
Their negative energy was having an effect on their fellow camp mates and effecting their own energy. A case in point for one of the books I am reading at the moments ‘Penney Peirce’s’ “Intuitive Way” and was probably for the best even though the outcome was probably not the best desired outcome with the TV Programmes producers.
Tonight’s viewing opened with the warning about another camp mates singing prowess. This camper had woken up and immediately started “Singing” then pulled their underpants up to probably what could be an excruciating high level and started dancing about the camp.
Other people commented on this persons incredible energy level and they were obviously having a positive effect on the rest of the group and elevating their energy levels by the expressions on their faces.
At times as more and more people come into the camp there has been slightly heated conversations over the bed situations as some have proper camp beds and other hammocks.
A bit later in the show another camp mate commented on how the high under pants wearing contestant seemed to be having so much fun in their hammock. They replied “Mate its great, you should see how I get to sleep” and promptly went on to demonstrate how they use the floor for purchase and then proceed to create a rocking motion that can send them off to sleep.
That’s when it hit me (once again, hence the part 2). Here are two people in the same reality show. One has jumped out of an aeroplane, partook in ‘Bush Tucker Trials’ and one, none of the latter and one is embracing it and singing and dancing and the other thinks is a living hell and couldn’t take any more proving in point that life etc is – All a Matter of Perception.
We maybe in Hell but we can literally get out of that Hell in 68 seconds (check out Abraham-Hicks) if we concentrate our thoughts on things we are grateful for and if we aren’t careful and don’t monitor our thoughts and our perception of our reality we can place ourselves in Hell.
(Note: Maybe another helpful reference point. The other book I am currently reading = Dr Joe Dispenza “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself”)
Years ago in Britain there was an advert for some sweets that challenged you not to chew them claiming it was impossible to eat one of the juicy, fruity treats without chewy it.
In Pam Grouts new book E:Cubed part of the first experiment suggests putting on some happy music first thing in the morning. I have done this but not wanting to wake my partner I sneak into the bathroom with my iPhone and some headphones I keep next the bed and dance like a loon to Pharrell Williams “Happy”.
The other day as I drove to work I heard a song on the radio that I hadn’t heard for a long time as the only time I have ever heard it was in the film “Beatlejuice” so I downloaded it to listen to any time I want.
This morning (Saturday) and my partner already gone to work. Instinct made me leap out of bed and play this song as I made the bed.
Like the sweety challenge I defy you to listen to this song and not at least tap your toe.
The other night I watched a program about Happiness in Britain. The prequel to this was they were discussing it on the local evening news and asking people to Tweet etc in their thoughts.
One person tweeted how they find it ridiculous and impossible to be happy and relaid a catalogue of negative issues they had been dealing with while another listed all the things they were grateful for like, family, home etc.
Abraham Hicks says if we give our attention to something for as little as 17 seconds its is already offering a vibration and Law of Attraction kicks in. If you give something your attention for 17 seconds and another within as little as 68 seconds it can show up in your experience.
So for the person who was obviously focused on negative issues predominately of course they were going to think happiness is ridiculous but they could turn their whole life around in 68 seconds and a happy song is a lot longer than that so we ALL have the opportunity to turn our whole lives around in the time it takes to play one track.
The other day I read something the Dalai Lama said that Happiness is an inside job. I couldn’t agree more but so many of us rely on outside situations to make us happy but when in reality we can create happiness regardless of outside appearances.
So I dare you “Jump in the Line” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday prior to the start of the Tour De France I watched on TV how they literally catalogued all the Sporting downfalls suffered by the Brits this year.
Cricket to World Cup and Wimbledon.
I also read (what I have read several times before in different books) there is a possibility the Great Depression could have been avoided if it wasn’t for the collective negative consciousness at the time.
Could people focusing on fear and doubt and speculated and calculated accounts in the press only escalated the negative down turn?
As I mentioned earlier I read this a long time ago and it has always played on my mind, could our recent economic downturn been avoided if there wasn’t so much focus from the media etc ‘how we were all going to hell in a hand cart’?
The two presenters jokingly quirked how the Prime Minister David Cameron was to believed to be rocking up to the Grande Depart as all hopes were out for other events. They joked he went to the World Cup but obviously were out of that but then he went to Wimbledon but now Andy Murray is out of that so I believe he’s coming to the Tour de France.
I jeered at my TV (you know I’m not the only one …. I’m not the only one am I? Oh who cares !! any way) “Hey guys cut it out, jinx it why don’t you !!!
Well now, unfortunately it is all history and Mark Cavendish is out of the Tour De France.
I won’t deny I am gutted but as Mark humbly refers to in his Guardian interview he has friends returning from Afghanistan or who have lost limbs so compared to that not having excruciatingly exciting sprint finishes to watch is small fry.
And there’s always next year !!
But just a warning guys because as I have read in “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen this morning “A person is limited only by the thoughts he chooses” or as T D Jakes said on Super Soul Sunday “I Am no greater than the thoughts I think”.
So lets have a ‘Collective Consciousness of unlimited potentiality’ and believe that Everything is Possible, especially greatness in everything we put our attention on. After all it all a case of perception. Something is only good or bad because we label it that way.
I make it a habit now when ever I Am commuting or walking around the supermarket, running errands etc to plug-in and hook up with motivational material using my iPhone and Youtube app.
It’s all a bit random trusting that the Universe is guiding me to what I need to listen to. Yesterday it was the link below. I decided to listen to it again today when I had an opportunity to take notes but the last bit of material struck a chord at the time and struck me again when I heard Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar Speech that personally, blew me away.
The contributor to the podcast quoted T D Jakes “If you are the smartest person in the group you need to get a higher group.” Always have people higher than you, or smarter than you. Look up to people who have been there, worn the T-shirt to encourage your continual growth.
As I said previously I personally was struck by the content of the speech but I Am also aware that it has attracted a lot of media attention, both positive and negative. If you haven’t caught it I have attached the best version I could find despite poor quality and lip-sinking issues all the content it there.
I liked the fact that he thanked God for gracing his life with opportunities that he knew were not of his or any other human hand and proudly stating that it is a scientific fact that Gratitude reciprocates. The acknowledgement to his mothers amazing gift of self-respect and that his hero is himself in 10 years time which echoes the T D Jakes quote above.
This statement may go over the cynics heads and may have gone over mine 10 years ago but I so get this now and I AM definitely a calmer, happier, stronger, far less fearful person than I was 4 years ago let alone 10 thanks to reading “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne and numerous books on “The Law of Attraction” and “Quantum Physics”.
In 2014 I have made it a continual habit to say what I AM grateful for before I open my eyes, as I close my eyes and as often as I remember throughout the day and I thank the Universe for the opportunities that will arrive despite whatever my life looks like now as I practice the habit of ‘Faith’ not ‘Fear’ and I continually find things to grow the better version of me and eradicate negative thought patterns that I have created subconsciously that hinder my ability to manifest the life as I desire it and affect the ability to respect myself so whatever the opinion I raise my glass to you Mr McConaughey and everyone else who chooses to aspire to a Higher and Higher version of themselves or serve others to do the same.
I love spookies as I call them but they are really just evidence of the Law of Attraction in action. Some give me a knowing smile others make me go whoa !!
The other day I needed new red biros but only saw multi packs of various colours and didn’t want to buy a 10 pack of pens for the sake of two and the following day I am in a store with my partner and turn round to be faced by individual colour packs of biro’s. The Universe gave me my request less than 24 hours later.
Bear with me, it gets better.
This morning as I went to go to work I saw a book on the floor by the front door which was odd and usually I only read eBooks now but I picked the book up and seen it was a previously much-loved book by James Allen “As a Man Thinketh” and decided to pop it in my bag to take to work to have a read later. When I actually opened the book, there inside was a lottery ticket from 2005. I’ve just bought a book called ‘Blink – The Power of Thinking without Thinking’ so thinking without thinking I followed my instincts and went on-line and bought a lottery ticket using the numbers on the old ticket. There has to be some significance?
Telling a colleague I was definitely having some spooky incidents happening they relayed a situation that had happened only that day where they were talking with another colleague that what they needed with their coffee was a nice cake and shortly after this comment another member of staff arrived and gave them a box. Inside were two muffins as a customer had brought some in for the staff. Not a usual occurrence. This is a knowing smile, that’s the Law of Attraction in action love moment !!
Last year I came across a dream house and took a mental note of the estate agent, even requested the catalogue and joined email alerts. unfortunately the house was bought by someone else. The other day as I was deleting some junk emails I caught the first word of an email that struck me but to late it was gone. Later out and about I saw two estate agent signs of properties and then it hit me, that’s what that email was, it was from the estate agent that I had previously seen my dream house on. That day every turn I made there appeared to a property with this companies logo on it and then last night we went out to eat and headed to where we know the nearest car park was. Was being the operative word as it had been landscaped over and no longer existed. Plan B. I pointed out a side street to my partner that may have parking and it did indeed and our ideal parking spot was adjacent to ……………….. the estate agent that had been catching my awareness. Hmmmm what is the significance? Is my dream home ready to be made manifest?
The big whoa one made me cry, not good as I was driving at the time.
Last night my partner handed me his phone and said “do you think this is true, if so it’s amazing!” I read the Facebook post that he was forcing under my nose and read a story about twins separated at birth and one was thriving and one was struggling. Feeling desperate a nurse decided to break protocol and put the twins in the same crib and when they returned they saw the site above and the poorly twin started to thrive. I mentioned that it made sense as they had spent all that time growing together in the womb, it must have been dramatic being separated.
This morning I was picking a Youtube clip to listen to on the way to work and spotted one that caught my eye but then noticed it was three hours long and almost gave it a miss but something told me to listen anyway. As I got in to my commute the contributor started to tell a true story of twin girls separated at birth. I thought my heart would stop and tears welled up in my eyes. Whoa Universe you are so amazing !!
I wondered what the coincidence is of all these occurrences and reminded myself ‘There are no accidents’
I’d written the above and thought that was that and then as I was easy watching an evening TV magazine programme it contained a story of how a Nun who had no intention of being interviewed when the programme came to report an article was asked to be in the interview by a TV employee. She agreed and whilst being televised a very busy surgeon was watching the show and believed the Nun was suffering from a medical condition caused by a tumour. He felt compelled to email of his observation and the very Nun he was addressing picked up the email and emailed back. Long story shorter the Nun has had a life saving operation and is very grateful to the sequence of events that led to this and when the reporter relaying the story asked what did the Nun think about this series coincidences the Nun replied “The are no coincidences”.
Marvellous Monday, Tremendous Tuesday, Wonderful Wednesday, Phenomenal Thursday (OK I know it doesn’t start with a T but it rhymes) Freaky Friday and so it continues Sensational Saturday
The other day sat at a Red stop light (where Wayne Dyer says you can meditate and I’ve been trying) I gave myself a mental pat on the back for the fact that changing my thoughts and therefore my beliefs is becoming a daily practice something I realized when I first read The Secret was where I was going wrong. The type of mental work I am doing it not consistent as in, it’s not a religious daily practice of certain behaviours but there is daily practice of something. Usually last thing at night and first thing in the morning before rising, spattered with what ever randomness that is going on in my head during the day.
Over recent weeks seeing ourselves as physical tuning forks vibrating at a certain frequency depending on our thoughts and therefore hitting likewise vibrating circumstances that we draw to ourselves via those thoughts has been resonating with me (boom boom !!) I even made a picture of tuning forks as my laptop wallpaper to remind me to keep my thoughts good.
“As a man thinketh, in his heart so is he”
by James Allen
Last week I blogged that I had allowed myself to fall into an overwhelming negative situation at work and how brilliant it felt to say “stop” and take action. Now it has come into my awareness I have taken responsibility for it. I have taken responsibility that I needed to change my thoughts for a more desirable set of circumstances and respect myself so I have been affirming in my head that “I Am a worthy person and deserve respect”. I have also been drawn to revisit old material I had read in the early days of discovery The Law of Attraction/Quantum Field. This week it was “Ask and it is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks. I Am only a few days in but something else that resonated with me was that we were/are meant to live joyous lives so I have also affirming “I Am living Joy” as frequently as I can remember and when faced with a situation or person that makes my belly role (Fear, Anxiety and Doubt your fired remember) I reaffirm it.
Well !!! ………………………………………………………………………….
A member of staff who thought last week could use me as his bitching board sent me a very nice unexpected email offering support to arrange some training I Am putting into place. (Good feeling inside).
For some random reason thought about a boy I recently Inducted who I had to let go because the job was not for him and I hoped he was alright and the next day he was in the bank and he went out of his way to say hello and gave me a beautiful smile so I Am guessing he’s OK and doing well. (Good Feeling).
Stunning morning driving to work but windscreen/shield unexpectedly misted up and I drove badly as I manically tried to see and find the demister button at the same time to be faced with my neighbour who I nearly drove into. Feeling bad I hoped I’d have the opportunity to apologize for poor driving skills and later coming home popped in local shop to pick up some milk and the neighbours were going in also. apology made (Felt better).
Unexpectedly a colleague I normally get on with came into the office and spoke to me in a disrespectful way and instantly and effortlessly words fell out of my mouth that weren’t in an aggressive manner but letting them know in any uncertain terms .. you don’t speak to me like that. The situation could have been one of those that turn me into the subdividing cell again but I knew I’d had done everything correctly and I will not be pulled away from my task in hand because of a failure of communication on other peoples parts. My instincts told me to approach the over seeing manager for advise instead of acting irrationally. Now this person, shall I say has not a favourable reputation with other members of staff but labels aside my gut said discuss it with them and I did. This person said leave it with them and a short time later the disrespectful colleague came back and said “apparently I have upset you, I haven’t upset you have I?” and I replied honestly “Yes actually you did” They explained the stress they were under and the lack of communication they had experienced but I pointed out that none of that was my fault and that I appreciated the situation they were in but that didn’t give them the right to take it out on me. I emailed the Manager and thanked them for their help in this matter (It felt good).
In my personal relationship my opinion has felt undervalued by comments my partner has been making and last night a conversation ensued whereby I was able to point out in a non hostile situation these recent comments, that when harboured had made me feel bad and resentful and when expressed as not acceptable – felt good.
The strange thing is the way I conducted myself in these above situations when the circumstances came about happened in a subconscious way that appeared to fall out of me as if directed by the non-physical part of me, that I know inherently was simply by making the decision to change my thoughts, setting some personal boundaries and saying a few affirmations in my head. It indicates to me the immense personal power we truly do have at our fingertips and to Freakishly confirm this another set of circumstances literally made me go “Whoa !! wait a minute”:
I Am a complete book whore, I admit it and have admitted it before. I jump from one text to another all week long and another thing that has resonated with me along with ‘Ask and it is Given/ Ask, believe, Receive’ and tuning forks is the quote from the bible “I Am that I Am“ and that some conformist religions of which I Am not a fan as I have previously blogged I cannot feel comfortable with a belief in a God that judges and segregates and yesterday (Friday) I had a meeting with a colleague over a couple issues that had come up during the week to discuss there completion. When I first went to work at this company seeing this persons name on the Company Structure did make my stomach role slightly as they were the only name I recognized and they did have a bit of a hard man reputation but as it turns out, perfect example of not putting ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ labels on things we probably have the closest working relationship, has been the most supportive and have has some freaky conversations over my period with the company (one that instigated me to buy them a copy of Anita Moorjani’s book – ‘Dying to be Me’). The meeting went off on a bit of a tangent about different cultural and belief systems within the various nationalities within our company and his own wife’s religious beliefs and again misinterpretation of scriptures. So I said funny you should say that, I’ve been reading about that recently and the phase “I Am that I Am “ and that it is actually saying that we are equally capable of anything Jesus is said to have done but religious misinterpretation has lead us to, in some cases to create and follow a judgemental man like image of God then later when I got home I was finding it difficult to concentrate so decided to go on-line to find something to listen to, to relax. First I see a post by Ricky Gervais (‘Derek’ – best bit of TV writing, in my eyes ever)
then I just randomly click on a post in the recommended for you list on You-tube and watch this.
Well after that, there is no mistaking that I Am one big mass of vibrational energy because every molecule of my physical being was vibrating.
On a mission to help others create a life of freedom and joy using the Law of Attraction
