Practice Makes Perfect

IMG_7058

I became aware of my first ‘self-help’ book in the 90’s when a mother I used to walk with to take our kids to school gave me a copy of “Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway” by Susan Jeffers.

We’d been talking about how our Ex’s were jerks and never wanted to see their kids or support them but actually I was relieved that mine lived a long, long, long way away now as our relationship was a lot more complicated than just that.

Not knowing at that point that our thoughts attract things I was blown away that, that evening I received a call from him and not in a good way. That’s why the friend offered me the book as she thought it may help me with my situation.

This book really did help me in so many ways and I recently bought an E version just to revisit why it had such a profound effect on me. From that book I read another and another because which ever book I was reading introduced me to another author and I was addicted.

However things didn’t change all that much in some areas and if they did, not for long until something clicked in me in 2010.

Now, I had been reading about the Law of Attraction in some gauze or another for over a decade but it wasn’t until I read a book in 2010 that the light bulb went on.

Recently I started to write a book and in it I mentioned that I heard that the teacher arrives when the student is ready and the very next day I heard Wayne Dyer say exactly the same thing in a YouTube interview I was listening to between Wayne and Tony Robbins.

That was certainly the case with Feel the Fear and shortly after reading that book I became aware of Louise Hay (A Goddess in my eyes). At the time I didn’t drive, there was no Amazon or eBooks and I used to either have to go to my local book store and order books or hop on a bus and travel the 11 miles (to the town I now work in and drive to every day) to find and purchase my next big fix.

I owe it all to Louise that I can now actually drive as it was visualising using the techniques in one of Louise’s books (with a seriously pulled quad muscle the night before my driving test) that I laid on the bed, closed my eyes and saw myself perform all the moves perfectly and indeed passed first time despite my muscle going in to a massive spasm as I tried to reverse around a corner.

The bingo moment in 2010 was when I read ‘The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne and what I realised was that the majority of the time I would read a book, think I had it all sussed and then go back to my normal day and get back in to my normal thought processes that I had manufactured inadvertently over many years and then nothing changed and it all looked bad again and I’d read another book and so the Merry Go Round continued.

What ‘The Secret’ had taught me that I hadn’t managed to gather from all the other amazing authors I had read previously were saying but I wasn’t ready to hear was “Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition ….” I think you are getting what  I got.

I would read a book and move on. Move on to another or move on with normal life but I wouldn’t put any effort or ‘put any skin in’ to actually putting what I had learn’t in to practice.

I love the old adage “Nothing Changes if nothing Changes” and I was certainly that person. Now I am not perfect but I put a lot more skin in these days than I did before and so much in my life has changed. Most importantly I am nearly always happy and optimistic these days and if I am not I find and use a ‘tool’ to remind me that ‘I’ and the Universe are unlimited, all giving and abundant.

Last night I sat in my favourite restaurant with some of my favourite people, eating astounding food and feeling extortionately grateful when somehow a conversation cropped up between the other three about what a mess the world is in. I sat silent, 1) knowing that at the moment they are not in a place to hear me if I said how I feel and 2) I know otherwise. The world is what we focus on and we need to focus on what we ‘Do’ want and not what we don’t want and we have to repeat, repeat, repeat focusing on it.

That is why I have posted Louise video below _

Have an awesome weekend.

Divine Storm

I have been feeling a bit AHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !! Lately. Like stop the world I want to get off for a bit. Sit the next few plays out.

Life has been so busy there is not enough ME time. Don’t get me wrong some of the busy is good busy. Going to local city to see one of my favourite comedian and laugh so much I actually pulled a muscle. An impromptu weekend away which was most enjoyable and a last minute text that meant I spent all day with my two amazing daughters and don’t get me wrong I know how truly blessed I am compared to what the terrible situation the people in the Philippines are going through but writing is who I Am, it is my bliss and there just doesn’t seem hardly any time to feel my bliss and write/blog.

I have had time to come across Neville Goddard and done the usual obsessive thing of creating a tick list of his books I desire and ticking the ones I have downloaded.

I have set myself a little project to Imagine certain things REAL.

I even listened to recordings on Youtube from my phone instead of music whilst updating filing/ Matrix system in work.

And today my long-awaited new Rhonda Byrne book ‘HERO’ was downloaded from Pre-Order and I nabbed a break and read a couple of pages and in the first few pages the analogy “Divine Storm” describing a very uncomfortable period in someone’s life. It struck a Chord with me. Knowing in hindsight every difficult period always makes us stronger people, enhances our knowledge and usually can be a pinnacle that we can’t go back from in some shape or form and molds a better future made me think, maybe I Am not in the circumstances I wish to be in and feel I Am not getting sufficient time to do the mental work to change this, a more beneficial way to regard this period is as a ‘Divine Storm’ whilst in it – because like most storms they only last a short period and then there is usually an amazing rainbow and brilliant sunshine once it’s passed.

Not much time to observe or be aware of LOA at work but I have seen subtle nuances that have made me think ‘Ahh Cheers Universe, I know that was you !!” but the best one was when I thought as soon as I get a chance I will go on-line and find how I could donate money to the Philippines. Just as I sat down something flashed up on my phone and it was a new email from Pay-pal that you could use to donate money to the Disaster Emergency Committee. Effortless and Painless, big mega Cheers Universe, you are so clever !!!!!!!!!!!
