Gratitude Attitude

I know a lot has been written about the power of gratitude to change one’s life. Even so, I don’t think anyone can ever say too much about it. Practicing gratitude for everything in your life is at the foundation of a spiritual existence.

We come from Source. Source is our source. And the source of everything in our lives, including what we have, what we think, how we live, and what we allow into our consciousness. Everything that flows into our lives comes as a result of the law of attraction.

This law of attraction could just as easily be called “Resonance.”  If you put two pianos in a room that are properly tuned, and you play the middle C note on one piano, you will see that the string for middle C is also vibrating on the other piano.  That is because the two strings resonate to each other.  The activation of one automatically activates the other.

Just as the strings on the piano vibrate, and therefore resonate to each other, our thoughts vibrate and resonate to the corresponding situations. Thoughts of gratitude bring more things to be grateful for. Thoughts of lack attract more thoughts which are conscious of how much we lack, and therefore create or attract more situations of lack.

Gratitude is probably the most important thing you can start with if you want to improve the circumstances of your life. Be grateful that you have air to breathe, that you can read, that there are so many wonderful things in this life to explore.

I am in the process of finishing my new book about gratitude  ( I call it Gratitude Attitude), which I hope will be published within a few months.  The wonderful thing about working on this book, is that it keeps me in a state of awareness of the importance of gratitude and of how much I have to be grateful for.

I have visited some of the poorest areas in the world, and I guarantee that if you are in a first world country, you have much to be grateful for. There are so many people in the world who do not even have the most basic needs met. And those of us in the modern countries who have our basic needs met have much to be grateful for. Expressing gratitude for even the smallest thing such as enough food to eat, will help bring more things into your life for which you can express gratitude.

Think of five things every day that you are grateful for. Write them down. And express thanks that these are in your life.

New Moon in Taurus — Prosperity Ritual

I have encouraged you to do a prosperity ritual at the New Moon for several years now. Today’s New Moon is in Taurus, the second house of the zodiac, traditionally the house of money, wealth, income, etc. It is a particularly powerful time to do a prosperity ritual and practice feeling prosperous.

As part of my process, I made some Blank Prosperity Checks to use to write checks from the Universe to myself. I made them look like the bank checks we are accustomed to seeing. There are three checks on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Here is what they look like: Continue reading

Energy Follows Attention

This video — a little over 7 minutes long — gives a very good explanation about what we give our attention to and how it affects our lives. Have you ever noticed that when things get “bad” they seem to compound and get worse? Or that when things start going well, lots of things start to line up how you want them?

It has audio with a static image, so you don’t have to actually WATCH it — you can just listen to it and get great info.

Act As If or Fake it 'Til you Make It

For many years I’ve heard that in order to get from where we are to where we want to be, we are supposed to “Act As If” we were already there. A companion phrase that I heard oft-repeated was “Fake it ’til you make it.” Back then, I understood the theory (sort of), but I could not understand how a person who is 100 pounds overweight could look in the mirror and act as if (s)he was thin.

I could not see how one could act as if (s)he was wealthy when a glance at the bank account showed less than $100 to last the next two weeks. How could one act as if (s)he was in a great job when it was the same thing (s)he wanted to get out of? If they pretended things were different, were they in denial?

On the HoloDeck

You are the master and creator of your HoloDeck and all of the virtual experiences, running as programs on your HoloDeck. They seem so real to you that you call them your life experience.

A common question from people who come for readings is, “How can I learn to create my reality?” Guidance always says you cannot learn it. You cannot learn what you already know. You cannot learn it because you are already doing it — every second, every minute, every day, every situation.

What you can learn is to pay attention to how you do it. Pay attention to the repeating patterns in your life. Especially the ones you are trying to prevent or the things you are trying to avoid. The repeating patterns in your life are the programs you are running on your HoloDeck. Everything in your life is running on your HoloDeck, every experience, situation, observation is on your HoloDeck and the repeating patterns are the obvious evidence of it.

I knew a guy many years ago who kept having problems with burglaries and vandalism. Austin (not his real name) moved to a better neighborhood. Another burglary. Continue reading

Create Your Fortune by Letting Go of “What Is”

Almost everyone has a long list of things they want in their life that have not yet manifested. High on those lists are lots of money, a new house, a new car, a great job, meeting one’s soulmate, perfect health, long life and more.

The Law of Attraction says that whatever you desire is coming toward you, by virtue of the fact that you desire it and put your attention on it. Your energy, resonating at a frequency of desire for something sets up a corresponding resonant frequency in the something you want so it is attracted to you. So why do so many people NOT have what they desire?

I believe it’s because they pay far too much attention to the ABSENCE of their desires in their lives. Continue reading

The Law of Attraction From Many Years Ago

There has been much attention paid to “The Secret” book and movie in the past couple of years. It has wonderful, inspiring information. But the information is not new. As they state in the movie, this “secret” has been known by successful people throughout history.

Napoleon Hill, the author of “Think and Grow Rich” talks about the importance of what you think and how it it creates your reality. He doesn’t call it the Law of Attraction, but it is the same thing. He says our greatest riches are given to us at birth in the form of the power to control our mind in order to manifest what we want.

W. Clement Stone’s “The Success System that Never Fails” is available in 12 parts. Jack Canfield credits Stone with teaching him the Law of Attraction and starting him on the path to success. Stone lived to be 100. He passed away in 2002. When he talks about selling papers a age 6, he is talking about 1908 in Chicago. He started out in poverty. His father gambled away the family money before he died when little Clement was only 3 years old. Stone became a very successful man.

Here are Parts 1, 2 and 3 so you can follow on from there.

New Moon Eclipse — Gratitude Ritual

Today is the New Moon, the time for new beginnings. There is also an Annular Solar Eclipse today. Eclipses bring change. New beginnings are a form of change. The eclipse should add more power and energy to changes and rituals.

It is the perfect time to plant the seeds of your future. I suggest you perform a New Moon Prosperity ritual every New Moon if possible. It is the most powerful if you do it within 24 hours after the New Moon.

One of the best things you can do if you are wanting to manifest more is to be grateful for what you have. The act of sincere gratitude, appreciation and thanks focuses your attention on your blessings and bounty. As you know by now, you get more of what you focus upon.

As part of my process, I made some Blank Prosperity Checks to use to write checks from the Universe to myself. I made them look like the bank checks we are accustomed to seeing. There are three checks on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Here is what they look like: Continue reading

Living the "How To" Secret Law of Attraction

This collection of three videos is absolutely right on. If you like the Abraham-Hicks Material, you’ll love this.

Zen DeBrucke gives a very simple, practical set of info and steps to allow you to get in touch with your internal guidance system so that you can more accurately manifest what you want in life.

She teaches you to pay attention to the visceral sensations in your body, what they mean and how to use them as your guidance system, rather than letting your mind get in the way.

What Do You Expect?

Are you getting what you expect? Or are you surprised by your life and the turns it takes? Do you feel that sudden changes in your life come out of nowhere? I talked to someone recently who was in a bad car accident. I’ll call her “Henrietta” for these purposes. She was broad-sided at an intersection by someone speeding through a red light. Her car rolled over many times. As she told me the grim details, I was grimacing as I was imagining her being cut from the car. It was a very dramatic and sad story.

As Henrietta ended her story, she said to me, “I know you believe we create our own reality, but I didn’t create this. I would never create something like this.”
