Sometimes I forget that people actually have kids that are older than mine.

Yesterday I visualized winning on Blingo. Today I won a movie ticket

A few small-but-cool things:
  • I manifested a copy of the Secret audio book from my sister
  • Since watching The Secret, plans I make are always kept. Usually, plans I make with other people end up falling apart because they get busy or can't make it. I've started visualizing myself meeting them, laughing with them, talking to them, and every time, I end up meeting them. I've only had friends back out once since watching The Secret, and that's because I was in a bad vibration (and I knew it, but didn't do anything to change it, so my plans got ruined)
  • I've stopped worrying about the "how" as much as possible, and it's amazing how well things have worked out
  • The CD-changer in my car is broken, and my dad mentioned yesterday that it should be covered with the warranty, something I hadn't thought of at all, so that's exciting

Wow, I was going through youtube and found this video of Jewel. I was so shocked by what she said! It seems to me now that it seems everyone is manifesting, but I just never paid enough attention???

Question......I am considering using acupuncture to get preg. Is that too much worrying about the how? I've been researching accupuncture since before watching the secret and I feel drawn to it and the movie did say to go with what you are drawn too but I also feel like I might be worried too much about the how.

Any insight?

Thanks!

I was thinking this exact thing while watching N.E. play last night. They always win (or so it seems) and I wondered if their coach knows the Secret and wouldn't it be cool if he was teaching it to all the players?

Boy, this makes my imagination wander . . . what if:?
We had a school just for the Secret? Imagine that?

Well, I guess this kinda is one already isn't it?

No, it's not "worrying about how", it's going with the flow! If you're drawn to it, I say listen to the message you're getting! The universe is providing what you need. Think of it as you're preparing your body to nurture the baby you're going to have!

Hey, it helped me get pregnant!

I agree- you're not "worrying about the how", the Universe is providing you with the "how"!

It depends. Are you believing that's the only way it can happen, or just viewing that as a way?

I think that whether or not you do acupuncture isn't as important as WHY you do whatever you decide to do. I think that we should seek joy in our processes as well as our outcomes. So in your question, I think if you do acupuncture because you are desperate and worried then it isn't a great idea, but if you do acupuncture because you think it is cool and fun and interesting then it is wonderful thing for you to do.

In one of the things I was reading about LofA (can't remember which) they talked about the expression "pray and then move your feet." The first step is to ask, then be in a receiving state (finding joy), and then take inspired action. I don't see why acupuncture couldn't be inspired action.

So if you are going to do acupunture to get pregnant, do it because you are excited about it. Do it because you are following your bliss.

In other news, my 8 year old manifested baby guppies. She has a fish tank and a couple of weeks ago she read in a library book that guppies are the easiet fish to breed, and decided it would be really cool to have baby fish. A few days later, she was out with my DH and they stopped by the pet store (which they hadn't even been planning on stopping at) and while they were there they saw a pregnant guppy, so they bought her and a special little breeding tank. This morning the guppy gave birth, and my DD is totally over the moon.

(I really like it that my kids can manifest things they want without the universe requiring anything from me )

Thanks guys. I feel very drawn to acup and it is partly because I believe it will help me to get healthier and pregnant. I also really am interested in it. I am even considering becoming an AP myself so I kind of consider it research. The human body is amazing and I love the idea of getting healthier through natural methods.

Thanks for the insight.

Funny story:
I am getting so used to finding the *perfect* parking space now everywhere I go that today when I pulled into the grocery store, I saw a spot up front. Great! I thought, just as a car pulled into the spot from the other direction.

Oh well, I said to myself, because I have to park kind of far away, this will just give me more time to look for that 20 dollar bill I KNOW I'm going to find today.

So, as I walked toward the store, right there was a parking spot in the very first space on the other side. It was hidden behind a van, but it was there just waiting for me.

It made me laugh. It was like the universe was saying, "And you doubt me!?"

LOL, my 3.5yo manifested something yesterday too. We were going on a playdate and he was wanting to play with a special toy that his friend has that uses batteries but whenever we go there there are usually no batteries in the toy or it's just run out. So yesterday out of the blue he said he would like to play with that toy - so I said to him to keep that thought in his head and I'm sure it will happen. Well we arrived, he asked my friend about the toy and she said "you know, I have just put some batteries in that toy wondering if you'd like to play with it!".

Anyone else feel 'high' from all this positive energy?! I love it! Today "the sun is shining and the grass is green".

yes!

I'm doing the "How to Change Your Life Around in 30 Days) workbook and today my meditation was "The sun is shining and the grass is green," which made me LOL because we are in the middle of an ice storm.

I changed it to "The sun is shining and the ice is glittering."

This morning my dh went and got some new paint for the room we painted this weekend. He had run out and just needed some more for the second coat. After he put it on half a wall he found it was the wrong color. The person at the paint desk had screwed up the tint. So he was all annoyed and negative and I told him to return it and he said they wouldn't take it back but I told him they would so he tried. He came home and said they told him there are no returns on custom paint.

I got pissed. I said no way, this is their fault and he's telling me he told the c/s woman that and she still said sorry, no returns. I asked if he talked to a manager and he said no. So I decided I would go. So I'm getting myself worked up and ready to rip someone a new one and then I think wait, this isn't a good LOA attitude now is it?

So I stopped myself. I visualized someone giving me my money back on my debit card (that he used to pay for it). Then I took my "positive music" cd and listened to one song I really like the whole way there (it's a short drive but I got to hear it about twice through). At Lowe's I sat in the parking lot and again visualized a manager giving me a refund before I finally went in.

I went in and politely asked for a manager (got a "team leader" instead). I explained that my dh had been told he couldn't return custom paint but that there had been a mistake and it was not the right color. I showed her the can of empty paint that was the right color and you could see it wasn't the same shade (dh had done that too when they told him "no").

Long story short, she was really nice and apologetic and gave me a refund with no problems whatsoever

I was so jazzed, I got in the car and started laughing while I was driving home, listening to my song Yeah, feeling "high" fits the description I felt great the rest of the day

Here you go, here's some free money for all of us! I jsut got this email from friend.

Subject: Here is the information.........from the IRS site


Hiall, I'm sure you've heard about this but here is the IRS link to read how it works out, You don't need to have a phone now, just have had one in this time period. It can't hurt to ask your tax preparer about it, so print it out.

This is true! Here is the information on it from the IRS:

http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/...161506,00.html

Print this out and put in 2006 tax return folder. It is an easy $30 to $60.

A SPECIAL ONE TIME TAX CREDIT ON YOUR 2006 TAX RETURN When it comes time to prepare and file your 2006 tax return, make sure you
don't overlook the federal excise tax refund credit. You claim the credit
on line 71 of your form 1040. A similar line will be available if you file
the short form 1040A. If you have family or friends who no longer file a
tax return AND they have their own land phone in their home and have been
paying a phone bill for years, make sure they know about this form
1040EZT. What is this all about? Well, the federal excise tax has been charged to
you on your phone bill for years. It is an old tax that was assessed on your
toll calls based on how far the call was being made and how much time you
talked on that call. When phone companies began to offer flat fee phone
service, challenges to the excise tax ended up in federal courts in several
districts of the country. The challenges pointed out that flat fee/rate phone service had nothing to
do with the distance and the length of the phone call. Therefore, the
excise tax should/could not be assessed. The IRS has now conceded this argument. Phone companies have been given
notice to stop assessing the federal excise tax as of Aug 30, 2006. You
will most likely see the tax on your September cutoff statement, but it
should NOT be on your October bill. But the challengers of the old law also demanded restitution. So the IRS
has announced that a one time credit will be available when you and I file
our 2006 tax return as I explained above. However, the IRS also
established limits on how BIG a credit you can get. Here's how it works.

If you file your return as a single person with just you as a dependent,
you get to claim a $30 credit on line 71 of your 1040.

If you file with a child or a parent as your dependent, you claim $40.

If you file your return as a married couple with no children, you claim $40.

If you file as married with children, you claim $50 if one child, $60 if
two children.

In all cases, the most you get to claim is $60 - UNLESS you have all your
phone bills starting AFTER Feb 28, 2003 through July 31, 2006 (do not use
any bills starting Aug 1, 2006), then you can add up the ACTUAL TAX AS IT
APPEARS ON YOUR BILLS AND CLAIM THAT FOR A CREDIT.

Now if you have your actual phone bills and come up with an ACTUAL TAX
AMOUNT, you cannot use line 71 on your tax return. You have to complete a
special form number 8913 and attach it to your tax return.

Individuals using the special from 1040EZ-T will have to attach this form
8913 also.

One final point - this credit is a refundable credit. That means you get
this money, no matter how your tax return works out. If you would end up
owing the IRS a balance, the refund will reduce that balance you owe.

If you end up getting a refund, the credit will be added and you get a
bigger refund by that $30 to $60, depending on how many dependents are on
your return.

Feel free to pass this on or make copies for family and friends who don't
have computers.

wow, how cool about the tax thing! and the guppies! and the refund! and the batteries! and the $20! and acupuncture!

i've been saying "money comes easily and often" and yesterday looked at my 2007 benefits summary to find out that i have about 40 more hours of vacation time than i thought! PLUS 35 hours carried over from 2006! the universe knows i'd rather have a paid day off than the same money in my bank account - it's like a double manifestation!

it really is pretty fun, huh? i find myself laughing when something like this happens, i'm just so tickled.
