I’ve been crying, I’ve had anxiety, worry, anger, frustration, sadness, you name the negative feelings and I’ve felt them this week. I’ve been called things I don’t even want to repeat because I believe in equality, and I’m a huge fan of Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy.
I’m criticized because I say things like, “violence doesn’t solve violence.”
Or, “We don’t live in a ‘this or that’ world, we live in a ‘this AND that’ world. But, we cannot accept all our unique features that make up this beautiful planet.”
It went from solely worrying about the effects of the pandemic, to now worrying about it AND the inclusion and safety for ourselves and the people we love. The United States is in turmoil and I really don’t know what I can say or do to fix it. I am hurting and I’m scared for everyone. And yet, I am SO THANKFUL other countries in our amazing world are coming together to support love and equality for people of color.
I just want you to know I’m thinking about all of you and I hope you stay safe and healthy during COVID-19 and these challenging times. Always believe in yourself and the power that is within you. Let’s come together and support each other, please.
I will never back down for trying to promote peace and love for everyone.
I’ve made a mistake. Actually, I’ve made many mistakes. I’ve made SO MANY mistakes where I literally have conversation in my head going something like this:
Why would you think it’s…? Why would you think this way? Oh my gosh, you are such a blonde! What were you thinking?? You’re such a dumbass! Why is everything so much easier for others and you keep screwing it all up!? God, you’re so stupid.
Yep. I’ve had these types of conversations with myself several times over the years. I still have them from time to time even now. And today was another one of those times.
I made a mistake in my work with the physicists. I felt stupid. I felt dumb. I felt incompetent. I felt alone in my dumbassery.
But you know what? It’s just a story I choose to tell myself. Just because I feel this way about myself right now…does it make it true? Sure, I’m not the smartest person in the world, but I’m not EVERYTHING I tell myself who I am.
Unless I choose to believe I’m that person.
Same goes with regards to others and who they tell you who you are. Do you think their story they tell themselves about you is real and true?
No…not unless you choose it to be.
Okay, so you make mistakes. Okay, so you slip up sometimes. Okay, so you fall down and roll down the hill sometimes.
But, that doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress with your dreams and desires in life. It doesn’t mean you aren’t ManiFASTing everything you crave to have and experience in every realm of your physical sphere. Everything you tell yourself is a story because it’s your own perception of your reality.
You get to choose.
I make mistakes several times per day, most of the time I just laugh and move on because I give myself permission to move on from it. I want you to do that for yourself, too, because you are a child of the Universe. You are a child of Mother Nature. You ARE amazing just the way you ARE.
I’m choosing this for you, so choose it for yourself, too!
If I gave up after the first 50 mistakes I made in year one of CHOSEN ManiFASTing, I wouldn’t be where I am today. If I threw in the towel all those days I seriously felt like throwing in the towel with regards to my business and all my hopes and dreams, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
If I done did every single time I said, “I’m DONE” to my boyfriend over the past 3 years, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Keep going. Keep taking daily steps. Keep putting reminder alarms in your phone to have a date with manifesting your desires because your daily steps (no matter how big or small they may seem to you) ARE communicating to the Universe what you’ve ordered to receive.
Trust the process, be gentle with yourself, and tell yourself:
(insert your name), you ROCK! You’re a total Badass at life!
You’re amazing, keep going. Remember, the Universe works behind the scenes 99% of the time before you “see” it with your eyes (because you don’t see with your eyes, you really see with your mind). You’ve got this!
Whew! Are you hanging on to this rollercoaster ride we call “life”? I want to remind you that ANY blessing is considered a manifestation because it literally comes down to how you choose your focus. And using the Law of Attraction doesn’t mean you are completely void of all negative energy. YOU are the creator of your perceptive reality because the Universe exists in ALL ways simultaneously (it’s your vantage point that creates what is “real”).
A Manifesting Exercise For You
To put what I mean into perspective for yourself, I have another manifesting exercise for you. Over these past 2 weeks I’m going to list out experiences of my own, not in any particular order, just whatever comes to mind over the past 2 weeks:
A natural gas explosion happened outside of my community (-)
I stayed in a hotel with my dog, Gilley, because I had to evacuate (-)
My hotel expenses are being reimbursed (+)
My Instagram profile is dead, Instagram won’t let me back into it, so I’ve quit Instagram (2 years of work and a couple thousands of dollars on my social profile…down the drain) (-)
My laptop broke and I’m still trying to figure out a way to fix it (-)
My laptop is broken and I cannot finish my book (currently using my work laptop for this message post today) (-)
I have a work laptop to use for my work with the physicists, I use it for backup at this moment (+)
I got into an argument with my sweet chemist (-)
I manifested my own choosing of a couch and matching ottoman for FREE (+)
Bruce Springsteen‘s guitarist and his wife follow me on Twitter (one of my most favorite guitarists) and his drummer (one of my most favorite drummers) retweeted one of my tweets (+)
Gilley has been sick for almost 2 weeks (-)
My doctor’s virtual visit was free (+)
I experienced both good things AND bad things over the past 2 weeks. I found myself tired and irritated by the negative experiences and began stating:
It’s always something, if it’s not one thing, it’s another.
Then I laughed at myself because THIS IS LIFE.
Now that I’ve listed out my experiences from these past 2 weeks, I’m going to circle the positive ones.
Then, I’m going to type out/write out these sentences again, but this time I’m going to state and plug in:
I’m so grateful…(insert sentence) because…thank you, Universe!
By performing this exercise, I’m choosing my focus and I’m choosing to conjure feelings and emotions ABOUT my focus so that I can CELEBRATE the phrase:
It’s always something, if it’s not one thing, it’s another.
Because, really, it’s true however way I choose to focus.
Now it’s your turn to do this short, 5-minute exercise and let me know how it goes for you! You can even take it a step further and write out all the negative sentences again and state WHY these experiences are actually a positive experience for you (meaning, what did you learn from it?).
Creating Your Own Affirmations
A couple of weeks ago I held a Q&A, here is another question from a beautiful soul:
(Context: I want to write out an affirmation for my business, but not the usual. I want it to be about what I give to others.) So, my question is, how do you create your own affirmations?
Answer: When creating your own affirmations, focus on cause and effect. So, if you are wanting to create affirmations around your business and within it giving to others, ask yourself and answer the following questions:
Who do I want to help in my business?
What kind of problems do they need help solving?
Why do I want to help them solve their problems?
What are their desired results having their problems solved?
What are MY desired results having helped solved their problems?
You can create affirmations around your answers by taking the information and creating sentences. Here are some examples:
I easily help both men and women who feel stuck in their life and their businesses and they receive their desired results quickly!
Because I help souls to approach thought from different angles they can easily manifest all their desires into their physical space quickly!
Each time I help a client they ManiFAST and I easily receive (insert own desire that is currently manifesting…my choice of a new couch and matching ottoman for free)!
Running my business is fun and rewarding because I help thousands of clients ManiFAST their own life and business desires, I’m an expert in my field of (insert more about your business)!
Whenever I listen to my soul I know I’m on my path of success because I want to help other souls…!
Each time I listen to my soul I receive more and more success in my business of…!
You can mix them up every few weeks or every month, basically whenever your soul is not feeling inspired any longer. You can even have more fun with it and use colored pencils, markers, or colored font onto your laptop when creating. Affirmations help propel you towards your manifestations with ease because your mind is more open and allowing this way. I totally believe in you, you’ve got this!
Until next time, have a great week and stay safe. Use your affirmations, feel free to use one of mine:
What I think can exist is what creates and persists.
I recently had an open Q&A session and I’ve received some GREAT questions about the Law of Attraction and manifestation. Over the next few weeks I’m going to answer your questions (and keep the souls who asked these questions anonymous) so that I can help everyone as much as possible at the same time.
Question:I frequently see the numbers 111 or 1111. Especially lately. I’ve read enough to know that those numbers mean I’m in alignment or on the right path, but with what? In alignment with the thought I am thinking at the time I see them? Or just on the right path with my life in general?
Answer: I love this question because perception is reality. The Universe doesn’t have an emotional tie to energy. In other words, energy is influenced upon itself because it’s just energy. It’s carbon, it’s hydrogen, it’s helium, etc. What makes the Law of Attraction so magical is because of energy vibration that happens 24/7 throughout the Universe.
So, how does this apply to you? Your brain is made up of the same elemental particles in the Universe, which means your brain (your thought) produces vibrational energy, the same energy that IS the Universe. Our society labels energy with certain terms because we collectively agree upon the labeled energy (thing).
A “chair” is labeled as such because we collectively agree to call it a “chair” in English, and use different languages around the world to identify the item (thing) through different sounds and shapes of writing.
Using the laws of the Universe, the “chair” is whatever we want it to be because it’s merely elemental particles of energy. The same energy that makes up this “chair” comes from the same source that makes up your “brain” and your “eyeballs”. But, you can call the “chair” a “fork” if you so choose to call it this.
The point is, you are in control of how you choose to perceive things around you, including mathematical figures such as “111” and “1111”.
Therefore, if you think and believe “111” or “1111” or even “2367” to symbolize affirmations of what is real, then you are choosing to believe that these symbols are in fact, real. You are choosing to perceive your own reality a certain way because you are giving it meaning of being “true” and “real”. By looking outside of yourself in order to deem something as “true” or “real”, you are giving away your own manifesting powers because you are choosing to believe “true” and “real” comes from outside of yourself through your sight. I say “sight” because you actually see with your mind (brain) rather than your eyeballs. Think of it this way:
Your brain is the projector (the machine) and your eyes are the projection screens (the white screens used to view what the projector gives out).
The Law of Attraction states, “like attracts like”. This means what you project outward is what is reflected TO you. The Universe operates in a boomerang effect because energy is influenced upon itself since the entire Universe IS energy. The energy from YOUR thoughts and beliefs are what plays out in front of you for you to perceive.
How to ManiFAST Using Your Own Perception: An Experiment
Now that you are approaching “thought” from a different angle because everything literally comes FROM your brain’s vibrational energy, perform an experiment on yourself:
Take something other than “111” or “1111” and give it the same meaning of affirming self-confidence and self-belief for what you desire to experience as “true” and “real” in your physical sphere. Example: the color pink or purple. See how it works out over the next week. Your subconscious and your conscious brain will “look” for the color.
But this does NOT mean you are not a powerful creator of your own reality!
Because everything is influenced upon itself because everything is energy…which means perception IS “reality” in how you choose to think and believe with your FOCUS.
And this is why so many spiritual teachers say to have a detached approach to manifesting your desires. Your vibrational energy is how the Universe responds to you. Again, it doesn’t have emotions. You have emotions, energy is unbiased.
So, pick something you are not emotionally tied to for your experiment for the next week and watch how your brain chooses to focus with your thoughts. Remember, YOU are a powerful creator of shaping energy into specific shapes that you give meaning to because of what you expect to “see” due to your focus and beliefs.
