Momentum Monday

momentum-monday1“As you look for a better-feeling way to approach whatever you are giving your attention to; as you continue to ask yourself from your ever-changing vantage point, “What is it that I do want?”… Eventually you will be standing in a very pleasing place—for you cannot continually ask yourself what it is that you do want without your point of attraction beginning to pivot in that direction. The process will be gradual, but your continued application of the process will yield wonderful results in only a few days.”  ~Abraham   Excerpted from: Money and the Law of Attraction on August 31, 2008

This quote from Abraham is a good one for you to remember to focus on what you do want. It’s the contrast vs clarity concept. If you’re not feeling well, ask yourself what you DO want. Believe it or not, some people do not necessarily want to get better. There are advantages for them to say unwell. But the majority of people do want to be better.

  1. Take a piece of paper and draw a line down the middle.  On the left hand column put the word “contrast” and on the other column label it “clarity”.
  2. Write down the things you’re not happy with on the left hand side (contrast). Just list them for now.
  3. Once you’re finished with listing the items under the Contrast side, you can dig deeper and list why you aren’t happy with them. What are they keeping you from doing or feeling.
  4. Now that you’ve dug a bit deeper, move over to the “Clarity” side. Here’s where you will have to take some time.
  5. Ask yourself what you want instead of the item on the left hand side
    • Why do you want that (“so that I can……”)
    • What will be different in your life if you have what you do want.

                    ***This may not be as easy as it appears. There are feelings and desires in this process. You really are going to examine why         you want what you say you want. You may surprise yourself.

After you have listed the things you want on the right hand side you’ll be able to make your affirmations and know what it is you want to concentrate on. This fits quite well with your script for the new year. If there is something in your script that you’ve now realized you need to change, go change your script. This is a valuable part of the creation of your new year, new life.

Try these steps. When you focus on what you do want, your vibration increases and you’ll be able to tell the Universe what to work on for you.

Remember, the “better feeling way” too.. This means try to move up on the emotional scale. For example, anger is higher on the emotional scale than depression.  It’s not what one would think of when you say “better” feeling but it really is. Anger involves movement of energy inside you whereas depression doesn’t. So, when you’re angry, you can then work on moving up to another level even if you do so slowly. Always try to do something that feels better, no matter how slight.

dont find fault

Use this short quote to guide your week this week. Whenever you start to complain or think that something wouldn’t have happened had Joe Blow done this or not done that or if this circumstance hadn’t happened, etc, immediately think of this quote. Switch your thinking around. Either stop the chain of thinking totally and recognize that “things happen” and no one is necessarily at fault or you can use the “I declare it good” affirmation and even add to it “I declare it good and see the remedy” right now!

momentum-monday1“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”  ~ Maya Angelou

This is a great quote to begin the Christmas season (this is the beginning of Advent after all).

We are all so wrapped up in what’s going on around ourselves that we really ought to take time and step back to see what’s going on in other people’s lives. You might be surprised. You might also be able to make a significant difference in their lives.

People frequently don’t want others to know that they are going through difficulty or that hard times have befallen them. But, if you pay attention and if you know the person at all, you will be able to tell. It’s obvious in their demeanor and behavior. They don’t smile as often. They don’t stand as straight and tall as usual.  If it’s  coworker, maybe there’s a change in their reliability or promptness.

Take a good look around you. Being nice to someone is really very easy. And you don’t need to worry that maybe you’ve read them wrong – being nice is not predicated upon someone being bad off. It’s good to be nice to people no matter what!

The whole idea is to open your eyes and search your peripheral vision. Take off the blinders and look all around you as the Holidays approach. Give someone a dollar if they’re asking for it. Reach out. Pick a charity you want to support this holiday so that others may do some good. What can you give up (a cup of coffee or two perhaps) so that someone could have a meal. Don’t laugh. Often it doesn’t take much more to feed someone. Every penny, every dollar makes a difference.

When I was in New York in October (and then again in DC later that month) I became really interested in the homeless population. I could never fathom sleeping on the streets in the cold and wet, not knowing where my next meal was coming from, not knowing where to attend to private issues. It’s something we should NEVER allow to happen in our country. We give so much money and aid to other countries while we have desperate people lying right outside our city buildings in great need. Why does this happen? Why can’t we be a rainbow in their clouds.  I feel very drawn to this cause but am not sure how to make a significant difference. But, I digress sort of. Sorry.

Take this time to change your sight. Expand it and open up your life and the life of many others.


Are You a Slow Learner? What’s LIfe Trying To Tell You?

slow learner Generally when things keep “going wrong” there is a message that you’re supposed to be getting. What usually happens, though, is that we don’t pay attention. We don’t slow down enough to actually “hear” what that message is.

So, then we go along and repeat the exact same action – as they say – we just “rinse and repeat”. Guess what? The Universe will deliver whatever it is we’re paying attention to and focusing on. More of the same comes our way.

Instead of just walking along blindly, falling into the same hole over and over again, slow down or even stop and take a look at what life is trying to tell you. What are you supposed to be hearing? Could it be that you should be more patient? How about less judgmental and more accepting? Maybe you need to learn how to say “no”. Maybe you have to develop outside interests. Maybe you need to pay more attention to your health. Any of these and more are possibilities.

Eventually the Universe will get your attention. But you really don’t want it to get this far, do you? Why experience so much more misery? If you could slow down, listen and make on the spot corrections, then your life could be so much more simple and happy. It’s “ok” to have one bad experience but why go through it so many times?

When you do stop and take some inventory, you will most likely uncover many of your limiting beliefs. Frequently people who experience abuse repeatedly are either a product of abusive childhoods or believe that they deserve to be punished – for just about anything and everything. This is a significant limiting belief and unless you uncover it and work to get rid of it, you really will just repeat history.

  • Figure out what’s happened to make you unhappy at this particular moment.
  • Swallow your pride and listen to what others have to tell you about the cause – even if you have to hear that you’re not the greatest at something or that you have a fault that warrants correction. Although it’s not easy to hear that now, it’s much better than to experience the same tragedy over and over again.
  • Evaluate what others have told you. Put it up against what you think might be going wrong. Was it you? Was it someone or something else? But always remember that we attract EVERYTHING into our lives and it’s our job to figure out what that was and why we keep attracting it. That’s where a large majority of your time should be spent.
  • When you’ve made that evaluation list, examine it and see if you can uncover some of your limiting beliefs? What are they? Go as deep as you can. Do you feel unworthy of love or money? If so, why?
  • Once you’ve discovered these limiting beliefs see if you can identify other events in your life that were based on the same limitations.
  • Write down the limiting beliefs (or other reasons you think this has happened).
  • What are you going to do about it? What actions are you going to take? Maybe you admit that you have to take responsibility for what’s happened and you make an attempt to change the actions or thoughts that have caused the problem.
  • Start a book of positive aspects if it involves other people. Remember to write at least 3 things a day about the other person. I think you can also try this for a situation too even though it was developed for problems with people.
  • The important thing is to journal (even if it’s just jotting short notes) of what happens, what you think, how you’re changing (or not), what you want to keep doing, and what the results are. Write it all down so you can learn from it later.

Try this and stop being a slow learner. Move up the ladder in life by making the changes.

If you’re going through a bad time right now, this saying is for you.

Can you look back on your life and examine any time where it seemed as if everything was falling apart but things ended up being better than they ever were before. During the crisis you thought that your world was ending and you’d never be happy or have anything again. But, often, after months or even years, you’re happy again. What’s up? How did that happen? Somehow you made it through the rough times and were able to make the most of the situation. As you were experiencing it, you were able to express to the Universe what you really wanted, put emotion into it and the Universe delivered.

Often when you are faced with dire circumstances, your brain waves get you going in the direction of yelling out (figuratively and often literally) what you really want. This is in contrast to the moping and concentrating on the lack in your life. You turn the corner, even if it’s for just a few seconds and shout it out that you want abundance – abundance of whatever you’re missing (love, friendship, peace of mind, money, work, etc). In that moment, you are concentrating on the good and stating what you want. Believe me when I say that the Universe listens when you put all that emotion into it. It perks up because it’s hearing something different from you and it immediately begins to “fill your order”. It begins working to bring you what you really want. Often, that moment in time is a turning point for you and you may not even realize it. You’re able to make it through all the bad times because you’ve realized (even it only subconsciously) that you don’t want the bad stuff, but you want the good stuff. Now that is what you’re going for – and you vow to not quit until you get that. If you can hold that focus, then you’re all set. The Universe will bring it to you pretty quickly (remember the Law of Gestation, though. Everything has it’s own time to come to you).

Try to remember this when you are considering going back into the slump you were in before. Remember to reach for a better feeling thought. That doesn’t mean you have to be PollyAnna but you can just try to think something a bit better. This is where diversion is often helpful for getting to that better feeling thought. You can also remember that the Universe will bring you what you’re asking for and if you continually vacillate from wanting the positive to lamenting your lack, then the Universe is like a warehouse attendant that takes something off the shelf to fulfill an order and then has to put it back up there when the order is changed. And on and on.

Keep the “ordering” process in mind no matter how bad things get and adamantly state what you want – and what you really do deserve!
