Wow we all have been tested a bit with either family staying with us or us staying with family. Learning to see the good and let the bad roll off our backs is certainly a challenge for us all.

It is amazing what great things come from a great attitude with all of this. I strongly suggest reading A New Earth By Ecart Tolley (Sp) and learn how to let things go and come from your soul instead of your ego.

In all the chaos sometimes it is easy to forget that we need to accept our family for all that they are and nothing we say or do is going to dramatically change the way they are. We are all responsible for our actions and reactions so make the choice to let it roll off your back and enjoy the time with your family.

Write Thank you notes to all who touched you this Season and enjoy the gratitude that comes back to you 100 fold.

Staying focused again...

Wow, I am really learning alot about myself. I have to stay focused on the LOA to keep me grounded and in an attitude of gratitude. In other words if I am not reading or doing affirmations and visualizations daily I tend to slip back to my old ways. And imagine that it usually happens around the same time of the month. Damn Hormones LOL. Anyway I have been getting better and better at pulling myself out of this funk and staying on track. That my fellow LOAers is why it is so important to make your affirmations a real priority in your daily routine.

I love to meditate and have found to help me I get on youtube and search LOA meditation and find a great one to just sit back and listen to. It makes me feel so refreshed.

You vision board can be super helpful too. Take a moment in your day and reflect on your dreams and do something everyday to bring you closer to that. Actions are louder than words and just like god, the universe helps those who help themselves. Don't just sit there, do something!

Keep on keepin on and do something inspirational and make your dreams come true one day at a time.

The Universe says YES!

So I went to my weekly meeting last night and continued a conversation that I had 2 weeks ago with one of my friends about doing seminars and workshops on the LOA. We both are passionate about sharing our knowledge and she is a marketer! That is the one thing that I was scared about is marketing something like that and where? She already has it all figured out. The other thing that was stressing me a little was that I am not sure how to handle the person that sucks the air out of the room in a class type situation and she had that figured out to.

Keep in mind that each time I felt myself going to that stressed place in my mind I would remind myself that the Universe says yes to what ever I am putting my energy towards so I would shift gears and realize that it will all be fine. the Universe said yes and it is all fine. We are going to do these workshops/seminars together and she will be in my upcoming class and be able to help me with any difficult situations. Thank you Universe for making it so effortless.

So remember that the Universe always and I mean always says YES! Next time you are getting excited about something and then you let your ego take over and tell you that it won't work remember that the Universe will say yes to what ever you are putting your energy into so keep it positive and have faith because it works every single time and it is so much better when it is good stuff!

Your surroundings, your home.

Being that we are all spirits having a physical experience our surroundings are very important. If we live in a home that is decorated nicely and clean we tend to do better all the way around. So it is time to get your surroundings in order and make them a happy place to be.

Start small and go from there. When you see something that needs cleaning or organizing go for it, get it done now. I personally do what like the least first and get it out of the way.

Piles can be huge in your home and now is the time to take care of them. Pick a pile and put it all away, go do it right now I will wait... tap tap tap goes my foot. LOL

Are you back so soon, see that didn't take any time at all, just keep doing that and soon you will be clutter free.

The nice thing about stuff is it flows in and out of your life so if you are looking at a new piece of furniture make room for it now and it will come faster than you think. Don't be afraid to get things out of your home that are driving you crazy. We don't take any of it with us so don't worry be happy with your things.

Make your bed in the morning, load the dishwasher, vacuum and sweep. Simple things can make all the difference about how you feel about your surroundings and that will help change you into who you really are.

I recently redecorated my living room just by moving things around and adding and deleting some things and it gave me a boost to see how cute it can be when I put some effort into it. You don't have to spend a dime to get things in order and change it up. Have fun. Take everything down off the shelves and walls and do it all over again from scratch.

Making your surroundings a part of your overall transformation. Get inspired by homes that make you swoon and create a great space for you.

Wow this one is huge for me, being the control freak that I can be. What do you mean I can't force others to see it my way and start using the LOA right away to make things happen? Fine, OK I will allow them to be where they are at and mind my own business. Yep that is so hard for me because I am so excited and passionate about the LOA and I want to tell everyone and I did in the beginning and got alot of rejection.

So to be able to do what I want, tell one and all about it and to still allow others to be where they are this is what I did. I signed up with the local community college to teach a class on the LOA and now I get to tell people all about it and they signed up and even paid for it. I just want to point out that this solution only came to me when I relaxed about it and allowed the process to happen as it needed for others and especially myself.

You see what I really want to do is do workshops and seminars on the LOA which just like teaching this class will have others signing up and paying for me to do what I love, teaching and sharing the LOA. And this teaching thing is just a stepping stone to the action that I need to take to make this happen.

Now back to allowing, it is Huge!!! Allowing the universe to manifest your affirmations and visualizations and not getting stuck in the how is huge for everyone. It is so important that you allow the Universe to do its job, allow others to do what they need to do and allow yourself to be where you are. This allowing relieves worry and fear and allows you to be happy and expect great things.

I hope this helps you in your journey to happiness.

Getting Stuck, What to do.

Ok so you are in a rut and figure that you are taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back. Think again. Because a positive thought, action, or emotion is hundreds of times more powerful than a negative one as long as you pull yourself out of it you are on the right path to your authentic self.

So don't fret about, focus on the now and the positive and move on. Some venting may occur so get it out and leave it where it lies and walk away from it.

Of all days I had this happen today, Thanksgiving. Oh well, it is done and left behind and I have moved forward with gratitude and love and am ready to create joy and happiness again.

We all get swept up with a little negativity once in a while, just pull yourself up and go forward. If you slip into the rut put it in four wheel drive and get back on track.

Your Body and The Law of Attraction

Are you happy with your body? You should be because honestly that is the only way to be with your body and the only way that you will transform it to a better, healthier body to be in. Let me explain. Your Body and the Law os attraction are connected.

So you are not happy about some part of your body, maybe the whole thing? You bitch about it, think bad thoughts about it, put alot of energy, emotion and feeling into all of this and guess what you are going to get.
Like I said your body and the law of attraction are connected so you get more of a problem with whatever it was that you were complaining and putting energy towards. Energy flow where attention goes.

Now think about how great your body is, did you know that our bodies are worth 45 million dollars if pieced out and sold, I am pretty sure that is against the law but never the less true. So now it sounds pretty good! If you had a 45 million dollar race horse would you feed him cheeseburgers and fries, sugar coated crap, junk food? I don't think so so you should be treating your body with much more respect and gratitude and feed to fuel. Exercise to strengthen and build endurance for a long life.

So next time you are looking in the mirror and start to bitch think again and be thankful for all of it and and start visualizing the perfect body for you. When you are eating repeat the words or thoughts that "this food makes me skinny and healthy". It only takes 21 days to reprogram and start a new habit so go for it and be happy with your new skinny, healthy body. And remember, thing skinny and healthy only.

You have to chenge and this is why!

So you are walking through a park and a big dog comes bounding up to you... If you are afraid of dogs you panic looking for somewhere to go, a way to get away from him... If you are a dog lover you are excited to see him and start talking to him and petting him.

So what is the difference here? It was not the dog, it was the person. So the moral to this story is that it takes your perception of the situation to change it. You have to change to make your life/world change.

So you don't like someone that you work with? It is time for you to change and the situation will then change to your specifications. Start doing things differently. take baby steps if needed. Bring them a coffee out of the blue. Start to picture what the perfect co worker would be like when you catch yourself fantasizing about cement blocks and duct tape. Seriously though you have to change because it is eating you alive. They are not changing, they are just doing what they do so start today to make that person, situation what you want it to be by seeing things in a new light. You will be amazed how the Universe will start to shift to make your perfect picture come to light.

This works with every situation that you are in that you are not happy with. The sooner that you realize this the sooner that things will change and make your life what you want it.

Have fun changing and create a great life!!

My new LOA group, we meet every Thursday evening :o)

So I had my second LOA meet up with my Mom and 3 others and it went so well! We meet here in Klamath Falls at Elmers Restaurant at 6:30 PM, casual, no host, girls night out sort of thing.

The first one last week transpired because I was all signed up to teach a class on the LOA and due to lack of participation the Community College canceled it so I am on for Winter term and shortened my class. Sooo anyhow it all worked out because due to some negativity and lessons that needed to be learned on my part I dislocated my knee the day that my actual class would have started. So I get a call from an old friend who I had reconnected with a little bit due to her daughter and my stepdaughter being friends, she asks if I was the one doing the class? I tell her yes and she informs me that she signed up for it and was super bummed that it was not going to happen and could we get together anyway. YES I say and so we agreed to start it in a few weeks due to My knee and her up coming trip to see her sick Dad.

The first meeting was great, there were 4 of us. I advertised a bit on a few free sites in the community about our little group get together and got one taker. We just talked about how we all got to the LOA and what we all knew about it. We wrapped it up with an assignment to write our perfect day.

Last night was our second meeting and we gained a person so there were 5 of us. We all ordered a little something yummy, OK I did, cinnamon swirl french toast made from a sticky bun YUM!!!! We talked and talked about our perfect day, about how once you discover the LOA and how to use it there is no turning back. We discussed how when you find yourself bringing negative things into your life it is so easy to turn it around, see the positive and move forward to what you really want.

I am looking so forward to next week and our growing group of like minded souls getting together and keeping each other on track.

Stay tuned for more updates on our LOA group.

What are your beliefs and how do you change them?

Do you try to change but keep ending up right back where you started so you give up for a while till you get desperate again? I think we have all been there, so the question is why?? It is because your ingrained beleifs that are in your subconscious mind keep you in one place until you change those core beleifs. Here is how you do just that.

Take out a piece of paper and write down 20 of your beliefs, don't think about it, just write, good or bad dosen't matter.

Now go through that list and write down what your belief should be and and what makes that true. Here is an example...

1. I am not confident, replaced with I am confident because I can talk to anyone and get my information to them with out feeling anxsious about it.
2. I am not good with money, replaced with I am great with money and it comes freely to me because I allow it to and am financially free.
3. I am a great mom because my kids are well rounded and doing well in school.

That is 3 examples of how to do this exercise. The first is an example of a beleif that you have that is not true to your conscious mind but is somehow in your subconscious and needs to be reprogramed to the truth. You are confident and here is the proof. The second is something that you believe and need to affirm something different in order to reprogram. You know that the truth is that you are not good with money so start affirming that you are good with money and see yourself as financially free and that will reprogram your subconscious mind. The third is a positive beleif that you know is the truth and you are jsut reaffirming that truth to keep it strong.

So now write a new list of beliefs about yoru self with the new positive ones and the whys to back up those new beliefs and read them and say them and visualize them daily. The Universe will start to reprogram to bring these new beliefs into action for you.

Go create your new beliefs NOW!!!

Who are you spending your time with?

Do you surround yourself with people that are like minded or energy drainers? This is a big part of the person you are in all aspects of your life. Really take a look at your friends, family, co workers... are there people that support your ideas, dreams and ways of thinking? If yes then great you are on the right track, keep it up.

If the answer is no it is time to reevaluate your social circle. this may be one of the hardest things to do but you cant spend your time and energy with people who are constantly trying to bring you down. Their are huge emotions tied to most of these people so if they are constantly telling you how bad everything is and cutting up your ideas it is next to impossible to let these thigns roll off your back.

How to make this chenge? Join some groups, classes, even message boards or blogs of people that you would like to befriend/become. Choose others that will be like mentors. Sometimes it is not even important to for yo to know them, just read their book and take what you can from them. As you get deeper into your goals and intensions you will attract like minded people.

Does this mean that you have to tell some of your not so supportive family members and friends to step off? Not at all, you can be honest with them and ask them to no longer bring you all the bad news, you can be passive about it and ask them what gret things are going on with them or you can jsut stop hanging out with them. As you become who you want to be they will either recognize yor new outlook and disappear or get on board.

Just remember it is not your job to change others, lead by exampl and allow them to be where they are in their own journey.

I hope this helps you on your Journey to a better life.

What kind of person are you?

Are you a Human Being that has Spiritual experiences or a Spiritual Being that is having a Human experience?

There are alot of people that don't realize that we are all connected with everything. If this is you it is time to work on your spiritual side. In order to fully understand the LOA you need to be a spiritual being and realize that we are having a human experience. This realization will open huge doors for you here on earth. It will wipe fear from your life and show you that you are capable of whatever you want.

Some of the ways to get in touch with your spiritual side is to meditate, just being with yourself and the Universe/God (insert your higher self here) helps you understand how deeply we are all connected through our subconscious or higher self. Believe me I know this is hard to do. I am a bit on the hyper side myself and need assistance with this. I go on youtube and search meditation and there are several great videos that will walk you thought the process and you can just sit right where you are and meditate. There are also book, audios and videos that you can purchase to help. So go to a quiet place, turn off the phone, lock the door and spend some time with your and your higher self.

Another way is to have one of these spiritual experiences that you hear about. Sometimes this happens to you, you have a near death experience, not recommended :o), you have a great soulful experience at church, you have a LOA moment that opens you up to the possibilities of the Universe. The best way to experience this is to get serious about The LOA or your ability to be one with the Universe/God through a prayer, affirmation etc...

So work on you and your spiritual side and get things moving in the right direction to be a bigger person right now!

What to do when there is a set back in your plans

Ahhh, Thinks are not working out the way I wanted them to. What do I do??

So you are working towards your dreams and something comes along that throws you completely off track. What now?

First are you having doubts? Maybe you are doing affirmations and visualizing but in your day to day life you are still expressing your debt, self esteem issues, lack of ? in your life.

If this is the case then it is time to rethink your dialogue in your head. When you see something in a store and you start to think I can't afford that, stop and say outloud or at least in your head I can afford that. visualize it in your home and where you woudl put it, if it is clothing see yourself wearing it or your child wearing it. Start making a habit of this process and things will change for the better.

So if you are already doing this and staying in that state of abundance and happiness and you still get blind sided by something just find the best in it and move on. The Universe works in mysterious yet meaningful ways and it is bringing you to an opportunity that you need to shift to see. So see all the greatness in this new situation and press forward.

Write down your intensions everyday and follow it with key things that you can do to make that happen. I try to blog everyday on several sites because it moves me forward towards getting more clients in my life coaching business. Stay the course, take action and believe and you will recieve.

Be in an Attitude of Gratitude!

Did you know that you can bring more greatness into your life just by being grateful for what is here that you already have? It is so true and it is so important to consistantly be in this attitude of gratitude.

Think about this, You enter a restaurant and imidietly get upset with how the hostess treated you so you take it out on a very efficient waitress and the whole experience turns bad. Been there done that, right? Well think about if you go a different route and be a little sympathetic towards the hostess, maybe suggest that the nest customers get seated faster because not everyone will be as understanding as you are. Then your waitress comes over and you are very nice to her and thank her for her effecincey on the job. 2 totally different experience just by being in a different attitude, your attitude of gratitude.

You can get in the habit of this in many different ways, here are a few that work great for me.

Gratitude Rock, this works really good for men because they keep their stuff in their pockets everyday, so pick a smaller stone that will fit well with your change, keys and all that other stuff you keey in your pocket, it could even be a special trinket or coin. Everytime you put your handin your pocket and feel it in there be grateful for something, when you pull it out in the evening and put it back in the morning be grateful for more things. This is a great way to be consistant.

Writing thank you notes, I do this weekly. Every Monday I write 3 to 5 tahnk you notes to people in my life or to the Manager of the Store where I got great service by so and so at the service counter, I remember names or write them down so I can give credit where credit is due. I write to family memebers that helped talk me thru something, friends, coworkers, mentors etc... This is a great way because you are on the look out for who to write these notes to all week long so you are always being grateful.

You can come up with your own way or use mine. Give it a go and see the little things that start to shift and get bigger and better in your life!!!

Getting your intensions clear!

So you figured out what you want. Are you ready to get into the details and figure out what it is you really want? I have clients who say I just want to witn the lottery and everythign would be great. Really?! So you would pay off your bills, buy some really nice stuff, spoil a few loved ones and invest s little and then what?.... History shows that if somebody is not ready for the financial windfall they will end right back where they started. The moral of the story... You need to change for your situation to change so here we go. Hang on.

Your goals need to be your intension every single day. You need to work towards them and step farther out of your comfort zone every day to grow into the bigger person that you are striving to be.

Homework, Take a 3x5 card, cut it in half and on one side write down your intensions/goals int he present tense. Example, I am..... and then on teh other side write down 6 things that you need to do that day to bring you steps closer to your goal in order of priority. If something gets bumped move it tot he next day. This will help you get closer everyday and boost your confidence in yourself by accomplishing soem realy actions daily. Keep challenging yourself and visualizing and you will wake up and be ther before you know it.

Creat you life Now!

What daily challenges really mean

So the Law of Attraction states that we should enjoy what we are doing so every time I would hit a wall I would give up because it was hard and life is supposed to be easy, Right? Well this is what I have learned recently.

When you are changing and becoming your intended self and setting and meeting goals you are stepping outside of your own box. This means that youa re goign to run into things that you have never done before and they will seem hard and frustrating. What does this wall mean? It means that you are moving forward, get excited because you are reaching new heights in your life and this little bump should be looked at as opportunity to learn a new skill or way of doing things.

So don't give up when it gets a little hard, find a new way to get to the other side of these challenges and move forward happily toward your intensions.

It is time for you to live your life now!

Are you still waiting for things to turn around and go your way for once? Haven't you caught that break that would make it all ok? Still wondering why others are getting the things that you want? Yeah.... I have a little secret for you....

There are no breaks, turnarounds, getting what others have until you pull you head out. Sound a little harsh? Good I have you attention.

I used to think that same way until I saw the Secret and now I live everyday by the LAW. By now you have probably heard about the Law of Attraction, it has been in the news, written about, talked about, etc... So What is IT?!

Very simply it is your thoughts and feelings that create your life. Everything that is in your life right now has been created by what you think and feel about.
Example, You are affraid you are going to be late so you are putting alot of energy and feeling into not being late and then you are late. What why would that be? you ask. Well it is because your putting alot of energy into being late. Next time put that energy into being early and things will change, I promise.

Your first lesson on the Law.

It is time for you test this theory, so here is a great way to see just how powerful it is.

Close your eyes and think of an object, really see it, color, texture, shape, take it all in, all the details. Got it? Ok now let it go and see how long it takes you to see that object.

See you in the next lesson.
