February Law of Attraction - Page 9

post #161 of 2309
I give when I am led to -- and I feel like it is a spiritual thing.... there will ALWAYS be people who have more or less than me and if I keep the mind set that there is always someone who has less -- it seems I will always be in the mindset that I can keep or have nothing --- and if I keep myself in the *everyone has more*, than I keep myself in an ungrateful mindset. That is why I love the "there is enough to go around for everyone" mindset.

To me, it is not an admittence that no one has needs that I can help meet, it is more the affirmation that if I am not able (or willing) to help someone in a certain situation, that I am holding faith that their needs will be met by someone else -- or ideally, by themself.

I do give, but only when our needs are met and when I feel led to. I want my giving to be joyous, and unconditional, and done with the purest of intentions --- not one where I feel "well, they do have less than me, so I SHOULD really give..." or "damn, I gave to _____ so now I can't get ___ for my family" ....

Also, it brings me great joy to give in ways that aren't financial per se -- so that is partially where I find my balance, as right now we are not in our ideal financial position (but we will be!!! I am manifesting it!!!)


On another note, we are really feeling led to travel --- to go on the road, to store the stuff we want to keep (bigger items we don't want to get rid of), get rid of the rest, and get an airstream or something similar, and just spend the next *however long we feel good* on the road.

I dunno, every time my husband and I talk about it we get all kinds of giddy and excited and talk about it and make plans and think of things we would do, places we would see, what we would bring, how it would enhance our lives and our daughter's life etc...

We are still manifesting our children's CD, and a few other things, but it seems this idea of going on the road is what is making us the most giddy and happy and excited....

....it puts me in mind of in The Secret about wrapping your hands around the steering wheel of your new car where they say you almost don't need the car because you feel it so intensely even in visualization...

... I am realizing more and more that it is not so much the aquiring of the dream that matters (though that is icing on the cake isn't it!!) but the permission we give ourselves to even HAVE the dream in the first place, to see it, to feel it, to think about it, feel about it, talk about it -- to me the freedom of giving wings to my dreams feels just as good, if not better than when my dreams fly.

Thinking of you all and feeling the love,

Tara

Yes yes yes! I'm playing with some things that I'm fairly certain I wouldn't want to live with if it came down to it, but I'm adoring the dreaming of it all! It's like when I manifested a house and then turned it down. : It was really cool knowing that I could do it, and even better knowing that I could change my mind!

Koala , I am enjoying your wisdom. I believe that there is plenty to share and that sharing and receiving both feel wonderful. (Of course, I had to unlearn the "strings attached" to receiving "gifts" as a child. And I choose to ignore the "independence agenda" of our Western culture. I recognize an interdependence of people and the Universe instead.). I can't think of much that feels better than helping someone who desires it. And I am grateful when someone desires to help me and I desire it. Win-win.

But, I have plenty already. My desires are fulfilled.

I really like that too! It makes me think about feelings like contagion, how we spread them around (does this have anything to do with my 2nd flu in as many months? ) and how we need to work on our *own* joy so we can spread that around too!

Let me distill the awesome post by Captain Cruncy above:
Give if it raises your vibration, whatever your situation.

Annikate - yes, yes, and yes. The finger-tapping is a big problem for me. I get all frustrated and start thinking "well, manifest already!" Recently I found the *perfect* apartment for us - only to have it be rented before we even got a chance to fill out an application. It's frustrating. But then I realize that it's the finger-tapping itself that's inhibiting my ability to manifest these things. I keep repeating "in just the PERFECT time, in ways that delight and amaze me". That way I can not worry about the timing and just let things present themselves. I always realize that if I am actively searching for the solution - trolling craigslist for hours, for instance - then it is probably not going to manifest. If I let go of the expectations of 'how' and just think how awesome it is that it's somewhere in my future, then it comes to me MUCH faster. It's hard, because the more you want something, the easier it is to get impatient and feel a lack! Bit of a catch-22 but a good way to practice our gratitude skills!

Steve Palina has a great explanation for those almost-manifestations that drive us all crazy. I really like this way of thinking about things - it allows you to take all those near-manifestations in stride and know that better things are on their way:

Captain Crunchy, you could just manifest yourself to Charlotte. Aira is considering it also...

I had to double check, I don't do praise. I just try to express my feelings, without judgment. So, the "wisdom" is my sense of delight in your sharing and my receiving your thoughts.

Wow, this really hit home for me. I just signed up for and am reading up on The Prosperity Game, and it is so dang hard to receive. It sounds so simple, but when I think about it, I love giving. And it's not that I want to stop loving giving, but I need to realize I am *worthy* to receive also. I get caught up in limiting the Universe, often subconciously, and don't even realize it until I read something like what you wrote. Thank you for bringing it to my concious mind.

Ok, bad choice of words. I do get what you meant! And that was my ditto back at you, actually.

Sometimes, you just have to laugh!

So, I followed the link to the "switchwords" thing that Tracy linked- I've already forgotten which thread it was in. But anyway, I decided to use the "Do" switchword.

So, suddenly, I realized I was walking around muttering, "Doo doo."

Well, I had read the testimonials, so I figured I'd add another word to it, so that I wasn't saying 'doo doo' all day. So I started saying (then shortly later singing), "Doo be doo be doo..."

: :

I hope it still works! :

Pat! Thanks what an awesome thing to say --- let me tell you, meeting you and some other of the wonderful mamas on this board and thread is one of my manifestations ...and it will happen!

When we manifest our way to travel the country in our airstream (or similar, I am not placing restrictions on the universe ), stopping by your way for some time is HIGH on the list!!!

That is another reason why we get so excited about traveling the country and living on the road for a time -- the chance to be unhurried, to go wherever we feel the whim, to check out various towns and cities and places and see how they feel to us and fit with us and to find that place that speaks to us to plant some more roots

So much to reply to! (as usual!)

darwinphish, thanks for that link about patience. I'm off to read it.

chasmyn, I've been wanting to respond to you re: the poopy thing.
Funny, but this seems to me my easiest thing to manifest lately. (Maybe it's 'cause I practice it every day.)

I just get into a good vibration and think like a mantra over and over again that dd is going to be able to go w/out pain, unassisted, w/out discomfort, blah blah, and do it over and over and over. I try to do like Hicks says for at least what is it? 73 seconds?

It works every time.

BTW, here's a switchword for constipation:
SWIVEL

Haven't tried it yet but I"m sure it'll work!

PS - very cool about your haircut!

Hi Mamas! I'm back in the land of the living! I managed to manifest the stomach flu for my whole family -- I guess it was a forced vacation.

Anyway, Koalamama, thanks for missing me a few pages back!

So much I want to respond to, but first I have to say -- Capt Crunchy, I SO see you and your family touring the country sharing your LOA children's songs with others! I can see you starting impromptu (sp?) concerts in parks and playgrounds. And of course your CD's would be available for purchase!
Let me know when you're in New England, okay?

Okay, off to refresh my memory for additional responses!

I've been saying "swivel" to him at random intervals today

I'm going to do it - the visualization. I'll let you know the result!
post #178 of 2309
Goodness gracious! Two hours go by and there's so much to respond to!

I am trying to frame my thoughts on the whole "Giving it away" issue... I think there is a difference between perceiving someone as imperfect and recognizing that they have a material need. I feel that I become the vessel for the Universe to manifest what THEY need.
There's always SOMETHING else I could use, if nothing else I could it put it in my 401k :, so does that mean I should never give? I hope not.

Koalamama, I think I may have echoed your thoughts completely

I have been following along with this thread, though I haven't posted since just after I watched The Secret. I was buzzing for three days!!! It was so amazing!!! The most incredible experience ever, and I want to continue. I want more than anything to be happy! But now I've crashed

I'm having some issues, things I can't seem to turn around into positive feelings. And I'm really feeling guilty about this first one, which I know is not helping. I'm ashamed to even admit it here, on MDC, where we are celebrating motherhood ... but for me, with DS2, motherhood stinks. We have spent the last three years locked into a negative, miserable downward spiralling pattern together. I have spent so much time attempting to work on his diet, taking him to therapists, taking him to a neuropshychologist, reading book after book on the "explosive" child and the "difficult child" and the "sensitive child". And we are no nearer to having a harmonious relationship, and I know, now, why. But what I can't seem to figure out is how to focus on the positive. Because, honestly, it's like I can't find anything positive to focus on. About my own child, a child I love. But a child I can't seem to like.

We had another huge explosive episode this morning. And I started losing it -- I was so angry, I locked myself in the bathroom. After I emerged, and took him to school, and came home, I sat down to write out a list of all the things I am grateful for, the things I enjoy, about him. I ended up just staring at the blank page and crying, because I couldn't come up with one single thing without a qualifier. Like, "He's helpful ... when he feels like it" and "He's caring ... to everyone but me".

What do I do to turn this relationship around? I feel so much anger and resentment and guilt and disgust wrapped up in this. How do I start to feel good about our relationship again, about DS2 again?
