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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb4SB2rCbGs&feature=youtu.be

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 ūüôā

 

Happy Song List 18/02/2016

It felt a bit ironic to post this, this morning but the Voice said I had to. Why is it ironic? Because despite saying to myself every morning “Today is going to be amazing. Today is going to be the best day of my life and miracles are going to happen today” it’s been a bit rubbish since the weekend with one bad bit of news after another and despite trying to fight it with affirmation after affirmation I still felt a bit sick in my stomach but here is the proof that music can change your mood.

No. 1 = Madonna – Holiday

You can turn this world around and bring back all of those happy days. Put your troubles down. It’s time to celebrate. I am a bit of a contradiction in terms and the moment because one part of me feels my thinking must be off whack somewhere or I wouldn’t be experiencing this and another part of me is saying ‘hold the faith, trust the process, let it go, it is all going to work out perfectly’ and listening to Madonna made me feel positive and I can turn this world around. Take a holiday from my thoughts and I find something to celebrate to get those Vibes high again.

No.2 = Katie Perry – Roar

Katie reminded me of a time that wasn’t so good before and I used this song to give me strength to go into an unpleasant situation and speak my truth and how empowering it was.

No. 3 = Fleetwood Mac – Don’t Stop

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmbQx5u5i7w

Don’t Stop thinking about tomorrow it will be here better than before. This song reminded me that if I keep focusing on the positive and trusting the process it can’t help being better than before because whatever negative thinking from the past I am reaping now can only be replaced with a brighter future if I hold a positive outlook so no looking back

Bonus Track – Katie Perry – Firework

Katie Perry didn’t automatically play today but after hearing Roar and Don’t Stop I thought a bit of Firework was just what I needed.

This song was released in 2010 very shortly after I first read the book ‘The Secret’ and while this book and all the subsequent books I have read since have changed my life negative situations were a way of life and a daily occurrence as I was reaping what I kept sowing. Not just a blip in the Matrix like this is and virtually every time I got in my car feeling overwhelmed this song was playing or came on shortly after and the line about maybe the reason all the doors are closed is so you could open one that leads to the perfect road got me through so many, many times until out of the blue one April day in 2011 literally a miracle of the Universe blew my mind and yes the perfect road did appear.

It also reminded me that after a Hurricane comes a rainbow so that is what I am focusing on now ……. Rainbows !!!!!!!

Practice Makes Perfect

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.

Unexpected Money Gratitude 

   

The other day I read in Pam Grouts blog about someone saying the affirmation “Unexpected money comes to me everyday ”

What have I got to lose I said to myself?

After a very luxurious Valentines weekend away being thoroughly spoilt I didn’t expect to be indulged any more but my partner had other plans and after starting to say the affirmation he lavished me with more gifts on an unplanned shopping trip.
It wasn’t physical money but I silently gave thanks for the unexpected money used to purchase these items.

I’ve read to receive more money be grateful even if it’s a penny and straight after I read about the affirmation I unexpectedly found a 2 pence lurking at the bottom of my bag.

I remembered to be grateful and have saved it as a reminder.

The other day I was having trouble contacting my broadband provider about a message I had received but remembered it said I needed to act before the end of February and as Feb draws to a close I was beginning to get slightly anxious.

Yesterday acknowledging the anxiety, I reminded myself there is a solution to every problem and that anxiety is harmful and to trust that everything will work out. I set a reminder in my calendar to alert me on my arrival home from work that this subject needed addressing.

The alert came and I set about sorting this issue. To cut a not very long story shorter I dealt with two extremely helpful assistants and even got money off my broadband package and free access to their sports TV channels for as long as I am receiving Broadband from them.

You might see that as ‘they do that anyway’ but to me this was unexpected money coming to me because I thought they we’re going to put the cost up.

I am very grateful and very happy and I am definitely going to keep saying the affirmation because I am certainly not losing anything and gaining a lot

 

When the going get’s tough

He maybe controversial, you may not even know who he is but when I listen to this clip it always brings me home – inside.

Conor McGregor is the new big thing in MMA UFC Fighting.

The following clip I accidentally clicked on when I was not in a very good place but clicked and accidentally feel inaccurate statements. First I believe there are no accidents and secondly I don’t even remember clicking on the YouTube app, it just started playing but it had such a good message for me at the very time I needed it, even more convincing that there are no accidents.

 

Conor McGregor is experiencing huge success at a hugely accelerated rate in the field of UFC and MMA.

Is it Conors belief and affiliation to the Law of Attraction?

Is it focusing on and visualisation the desired end result even when or more so when things aren’t going great?

If you read my blog you’ll know I have not been a stranger to expressing my love for the teachings of Abraham Hicks.

I listen to something nearly every morning as I travel to work. Abraham says that the good thing when things aren’t going great and we’re experience something unpleasant we can’t NOT put the exact opposite in to our Vortex and that was reassuring this morning when faced with a situation that made me think ‘I don’t want to be in a place that you can’t do ….. or be ……..’ and instantly as I had that thought I remembered I had put the contrast of what I do want into my Vortex and should focus on that.

It’s like Connor says when things are going bad you still have to visualise good things. It’s harder to do but that’s when we need to do it most or we remain in the struggle.

I have promoted the book ‘The Secret’ to so many people when they are in a bad place because that was the book that switched me onto The Law of Attraction and it can be a good introduction and I see them feel really good for a while and I advise them the trick is keep reading, read other like-minded material, it required daily practice but they see a change and I see them glow but then something bad happens and they can’t detract from it and they go back to their old negative thought patterns and they are then back in the downward spiral.

In the early days I didn’t practice what I preach and had negative days, times etc. I let fear rule but what this book taught me was where I had gone wrong in the past. I didn’t practice it daily, I didn’t practice enough in the hard times but gradually I have been able to change my habits (something at one time I did doubt ever being able to do) and I now switch to the right feeling thought almost and in some cases more often than not instantaneously and boy that’s a buzz in its self.

What do you do to get you back on track when something or someone rocks your boat? Have even you got a boat stabilising device?

Thankfully Abraham says it only takes 17 seconds to start feeling better and in 68 seconds you could be on a rampage of appreciation.

Let’s all start learning to float our boats gently down the stream even on the choppiest of days.

I’m just winding up Baby !!

567572_15865433_lz

 

I Am approaching 50, well in less than two years and several people I know have recently passed this milestone and what I have noticed is their conversation content.

One is constantly referring to limitations they believe they have and always contribute it to ‘Well you know I am 50 now’

Another is consciously looking on the internet for a bungalow as we call it in England which means the proverbially one storey house for ‘in your old age accommodation when you can’t manage the stairs’ and I have actually heard them say this is why they are looking and say ‘Well you got to start thinking about these things’.

I listen to their conversations. Their subconscious speak and It’s like they are all winding down or as the excellent sitcom we used to have in the UK was titled. They have one foot in the grave.

I have read self-help books etc since the late 90’s but it wasn’t until I read The Secret in 2010 that I realised I never put any of it into practice.

Since then I have digested every piece of material I can get my hands on and make daily rituals to enhance my life and change my ‘Biology’ (Bruce Lipton) styley.

I aim to focus on what I do what as much as possible instead of what I don’t want, to bring it ever closure to me and I am daily grateful for the smallest thing to the biggest thing.

I have a goal list but I don’t obsess about it because the how it comes to me is none of my business. I just keep the Faith and try following any guidance, gut feelings etc I get.

And talking of which, one thing I know I placed on a list and I visualise doing is to stay in 4 star plus accommodation and this weekend out of nowhere my partner suggested taking a city break. I researched some hotels and found a stunning 4 star Hotel cheaper than most of the lower end chains we usually use.

When we booked, it had the option to upgrade on check in if a better room was available. My partner said what the hell click on it. I wasn’t registering what I was doing or what was happening at the time. When we checked in they said they could see we have opted for the optional upgrade for a nominal fee. We agreed and happily took our key and looked for our room number.

We paced the floor a bit puzzled because we saw the number below and the number above and above and above. We decided to back track and retrace our steps when I spotted what looked faintly like our room number on a massive arched double door which obviously we hadn’t taken in to consideration. Yes this was our door, our door to our luxury suite !!!

It wasn’t until the following morning waking up that it struck me. I Am staying in the type of accommodation I looked longingly at pictures of on the internet and I had on my list and visualised over.

Boom !! Tick another manifestation off the list.

My life is getting better and better and I have only just started.

I’m not winding down. I Am winding up Baby !!

I AM Changing

I may not have manifested riches or written the book I dream of doing or a lot of my dreams for that matter but I have changed and I like the changes that have occurred.

I don’t watch soap operas any more because I don’t class personal tragedy and an unbearable amount of screaming entertainment.

I don’t watch TV show’s like “The Great British Bake Off” of “Master Chef”. Not that I am saying there is anything wrong with these TV shows but for me I don’t find show’s where people strive for the approval of ‘Experts’ enjoyable and watch them be crushed by their critique.

There always seem to a buzz word in my life at any one time and currently that word is “Perception”.

I mute out TV conversation or Polls that request a debate on someone’s life etc where one person says “Your wrong, I am right” and the other person says “No I am right, your wrong” or make judgements on situations that have nothing to do with them.

The other day I watched a program about submission into the Royal Academy Summer Show in London. One person had tried repeatedly over an unimaginable amount years to be accepted by a board. A board which consisted of a panel of people and their own personal perceptions of what is ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’. ‘Acceptable’ or ‘Not Acceptable’. Another person who I felt (my perception) had a seriously good talent would only believe that they were a good artist if the RA accepted their work.

Seeing people not loving their-selves or accepting their-selves unless someone else does makes me curl up a bit inside so I zone out of these types of viewing.

I tuned into another program that had Art in the title where I saw someone crush a young hopeful artist by telling them that one of the pieces was probably the worst things they have ever seen. Again another perception but thinking about the different types of Art I have seen in my time in the most famous art galleries in the world another person’s perception maybe that, this is the best piece of art they have ever seen but maybe too late. Because this young hopeful artist has been told it is the worst thing ever viewed their confidence may have been crushed and they may never produce another piece of art again and what could have been a promising career is no longer due to one persons perception.

I have let opportunities go because I lacked confidence in my ability and I held other people’s perceptions and opinion in my work higher than my own.

No longer !! And I credit my change in ‘Perception’ by finding and reading the book ‘The Secret’ and all the material I have read and listened to since.

I am literally a different person. A happy, grateful, calmer, relaxed, almost fearless person – bonus !!

Freaky Friday

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 Рfelt 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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKwo-D9UpWA

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.
