thing. And you don’t have a prayer of doing that. There is no possibility of getting everyone to agree with you, you see..... It’s really a fine line who gets to decide who the bad guy is and who the good guy is. And always the good guy is you and the bad guy is them— and you all think that. So finally when you say, “I don’t have to figure it out for any of them. And I’m going to align with the energy of well-being and follow that path.” Then it gets easier for you to watch everyone else play out their games. ......The answer for her is: withdraw from the thought and live happily ever after. And it is our promise to her and generations that follow—YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY
ABOUT WHAT ANYONE ELSE IS DOING IF YOU ARE TAKING CARE OF YOUR OWN VIBRATION.
..... As an uplifter we hear the basis of these questions because you are a teacher to the very core of your being. And it’s not any easy thing to know what you know and to live a life that is stable and good-feeling and see others around you that have not figured it out or who cannot find their way. KNOWING YOUR WAY IS THE BEST POSSIBILITY OF THEM FINDING THEIR WAY.

anyway, it seemed relevant, so I thought I'd share.
THANK YOU for sharing. This is just the message I wanted to share with a friend who is troubled by this.

There are no "shoulds." The question is, would you prefer to buy it? Would it be fun to buy it? It doesn't really matter beyond how you feel about it. It may be a window for the universe to give you something nice, but the nice thing will come to you at a later time if you decide this isn't the window that you want right now. There are lots and lots and lots of windows.

It may be that the universe is about to give you something wonderful, but not through a lottery ticket. So, if it would be fun and feel good, then do. If not, then don't.

BTW, I'm buying one sometime this week. I've never bought one before and I'm really into doing new things right now. Doing new things makes me happy and makes me feel more alive.

Thanks for sharing!! :

I think my affirmation for today will be "I allow the stream of well being."

I can totally relate!!! Every single word!!! I want to create something too but I've no idea what. I think the baby idea comes to mind because it is something that I know that I'm good at and it raising kids is what I have done with the last 10 years. . I'm ready to try something new and different.

Happiness is the most important thing to me to manifest, and I think that creating something would be a very happy experience. It really is contributing -- by making something that wasn't there and adding it to the world. I'm open to the universe showing me what I can create as my contribution. I want to create something that will help raise other people's vibrations.

funny side note -- we were on a long car ride yesterday and we spent part of it listening to Jeff Foxworthy on CD (you might be a red neck). Dh and I were laughing so hard, and I got to thinking about how much our vibrations were being raised by just relaxing with comedy.

1. As you are reading through the thread and you come to a post you want to quote, click the middle icon on the lower right corner, the one with quotation makes on it. It will change color.

2. Just keep reading the thread, select this icon in each post that you want to quote.

3. Once they are ALL marked, hit the regular "quote" button (which you already know how to use). When the screen comes up, all of the posts that you marked will be in the response box.

4. Go through all the post, deleting as needed, and writing your response.

enjoy!

I totally was. I'm dreaming about this bookcase for my kiddos!! http://www.potterybarnkids.com/produ...key=rromplyany

Here's what I meant to post. The Artist's Way...
http://www.amazon.com/Artists-Way-Ju...e=UTF8&s=books

I'm starting a 12 week study group ("cluster") with a group of people next Monday. One of my friends organized it. Here's how she started the invitation...

I keep wanting to “do something for myself” in my scant free time – something that’s fun, helps me to grow, and puts me in touch with a side of myself other than “mom” or “wife.” And since I haven’t found it, I’m creating it – and I’m inviting you to join me…

Seems like a lot of us are feeling a similar restlessness and need to express creative energy!

remove your "self" huh. Very interesting since so much of what I've been reading lately is all about removing "self". I'm reading The Book of Secrets and Life After Death both by Deepak Chopra. I am loving both as I've been looking for more information about Vedanta written by someone I can understand

Linda, thanks so much for explaining the multi-quote thing! I had no idea that was here! I thought y'all had fancy Mothering subscriptions or something

Thanks for posting that! I keep trying to get a "mom's night out" going with a very, very good friend of mine and it just doesn't happen. She is my favorite friend to hang out with but maybe I need to look for other people to do the creative stuff with. She and I have had one mom's night out (months ago - the summer I think!) where we did very creative artsy stuff and I loved it but I can't *make* her do it again, yk? Free will and all What your friend is doing is very inspirational.

I was part of a fiber arts circle with other moms and kids and I loved it at first but slowly over time it turned into just a wild playdate with no "fiber arts" happening. When my daughter didn't want to go anymore it was almost a relief. I think what I'm craving is the "art" part. But all of my friends are homeschooling moms with young kids so it's hard to make it happen. AHEM. I need to focus on manifesting it, not worrying bout how "hard" it is, right?

Well, Devon and I are your friends, and we're artsy, AND she's in NJ and I'm in Philly....

I'm just sayin'... maybe we're all closer than we think!

I would interpret that as a need to remove your ego from the equation. Less thought; more feeling.

So instead of creating a new human being because I'm bored : I need to figure out what I want to create.

<snip>

So I'm still not really sure *what* I want to do but since I've been thinking of it for weeks, I just called the library and asked them to track down the drawing book again (it was inter-library loan). That's a start at least. I *did* something
Shannon, this is AWESOME!! (And I'm about the bored part.) Look how quickly you were able to answer your own question?!

I do feel that I've lost my buzz a bit, to be honest. The quantum physics side of it always fascinated me, but it turns out Fred Wolf was somewhat unhappy that they'd left out half of what he said, and it was pretty similar to what dh was saying last night (we actually were having a pretty good conversation about it). He graduated summa cum laude in physics and knows enough about quantum physics to say that in fact it tends towards randomness. I guess part of my issues with dh is an issue I have with myself! Hardly surprising, I suppose! But of course, that could be proof of manifesting! :
They were very superficial! And they made it sound like the movie told you to stop doing anything and just sit and visualize, which it didn't. Plus they made the typical BS assumptions: scarcity, the evil of human nature, and the either/or of science vs. spirituality.

Once upon a time, I had a lover who was getting his PhD in physics, studying chaos theory no less. Well, he's a true scientist because one of his favorite lines was "Let's conduct the experiment!" I love that so much. Too much of what passes for science these days is really dogmatism. True science, imho, includes a sense of wonder and lots of curiosity; a willingness to test one's ideas out and change them as needed to fit the evidence.

So what if you think of it as conducting an LoA experiment? Not strict scientific method, but experience and observation.

And I am not exagerating that is what they said.

I met the man who became my husband approximately five years later when I was 38. I got married at 41 and had my baby (without scientific help) at 43.

Newsweek gets stuff wrong all the time.


my friend never bought Newsweek ever again.

I'll put my money on LOA..as I did when I attracted my husband.

I met dh at 32, married at 38, had ds at 41.

You ARE a Leo, and you shine your wonderful enthusiasm, love and humor on all of us on a daily basis, and we benefit from it! That is exactly what a Leo is supposed to do! Really, you make me frequently and it raises my vibration a lot!

For example, one might feel guilty to receive a Christmas present from someone they did not buy a present for. But this diminishes the idea that there is great value in the giving of the gift! There is as much for the giver in that act as there is for the receiver! So why does the receiver need to reciprocate with the same person?
: An unwillingness to recieve is part of poverty consciousness. A former friend of mine (yeah, I know, I seem to have a lot of those! ) got into this "I don't have any money" trip, and I was like, "ok, you're between jobs, come out and play, I'll provide food and transport and we'll go swimming, etc etc." but he wouldn't accept it! I'd point out that I'd been totally broke before, but I "got by with a little help from my friends" and was happy to pass it along. But he stopped spending any time with me rather than get out of his "But I don't have ANYTHING" headspace. It's sad and I miss him, but it's also a really clear example of how to use LoA to get what one doesn't want!

I've come a way since then, but am looking forward to doing this again. It's been 12 years so I'm due.
12 years is a Jupiter cycle, so it's interesting that the same things would come up.

been there done that... like yesterday! Do what you can and love your tired self and let the rest go. You are a wonderful person and a great mama and good things are coming to you.

We've all got set definitions of what's loving. Perhaps it's time to let those definitions go.
wow. that's beautiful!

Shannon, I think that's a fabulous realization, and it's great you're getting the book.

I second that recommendation! I worked through that book a couple times, and it was soooo helpful! Great for helping with the "I don't know what I want" feelings, too.

Yes! regional meetings of Manifesting Mamas!
I'm in MA, but some time this spring, ds and I will be coming to NJ, near Philly, to see my sister and maybe we'll get to meet some of you, too! I'm manifesting it!

Was this post long enough? I bet there's been 10 posts while I wrote it (mostly )

But, but, but, how does one go about doing this? The only way I know to learn how to do something is to study, read, research - - *then* go out and do it yk? I'm totally stuck here.

Thank you all you wonderful mamas.

Regarding the reviews of the Secret movie. This is why I typically don't read reviews about something that is near and dear to me. I already have an opinon. Someone outside that is a skeptic isn't looking at it from the same place I am. I don't feel I will gain anything positive from asking for their opinion. Most of them are in that job specifically for the controvery of disagreeing anyway.

Well, All my life, I've wanted one thing. It was the only answer I could think of to "what do you want to do?"

I wanted, and I quote myself, "I want to love, and be loved." I thought I understood what that meant.

Until Messages of Love.

When I write the Messages of Love, I simply let it flow through me. i say WHATEVER comes to mind, no matter how uncomfortable it makes me.

Now, I've always had a decent talent for writing, and I always wanted to write a book. But I just couldn't figure it out... what book? I wasn't able to actually sit and write one!

So, I knew I had the ability to write great prose. But what does one DO with that??

Well... where's your "always had it, but what the hell do I do with it?" talent, Annikate?

Sit down, take out that talent, and do whatever comes to mind.

When you do that, you'll be letting and being, instead of doing.

hello, all

I've just been diagnosed with pretty serious adrenal fatigue (read: stressed out) (see this great site: www.adrenalfatigue.org) and this information is taking me alittle while to absorb. Maybe there's a reason why I can't raise my vibrational level more than once in a while, why I feel so ... inefficient ... I really felt there was something seriously wrong with me wow I'm sitting here crying which is really rare for me.

Anyway, what does this have to do with the LOA? Well, I've been reading this thread voraciously for one thing and trying to find out just what it is I *do* want. And so last night in my information junkie fashion I was researching the heck out of adrenal fatigue and found out that along with de-stressors, nutritional support, additional sleep (ha!) the main prescription was ... JOY and it hit me like a ton of bricks that that is the answer to my question.

and I have felt inadequate to participate in this thread and couldn't figure out why oh my

so thank you all once again for your marvelous inspirition, insight, kindness to one another and JOY.

hoping to feel better soon

I totally was. I'm dreaming about this bookcase for my kiddos!! http://www.potterybarnkids.com/produ...key=rromplyany


Yesterday DH told me that people are starting to ask what I want for my birthday. Without blinking I said "tell 'em to get me gift certificates to PBK, I want those shelves." We never buy stuff like that, nor do I normally ask for it, but I know realistically that dh won't be building them anytime soon, and I am ready to a solution to our kid book disaster!

The Artist's way group sounds awesome btw!

I am a writer and have been off and on for years. I have always been a writer and felt like a writer even when I was not writing & publishing (like when I was teaching). It's only now that I'm back to publishing on a regular basis.

I am really going to think about this. Thank you.

And I'm in awe, not only of your obvious gift, but also of the way you use words. And you do it so FAST! It's clearly what you're meant to be doing, no doubt.

Annikate, you are so not a hog!! I LOVE you!

Try these on for size:
I am open to inspired action.
I trust that perfect opportunities will present themselves to me with perfect timing.
I know love, and love knows me!

You've asked, now let it go and enjoy yourself for a while so the universe can line it all up for you.

Barbara... Much JOY to you!

Happy happy JOY JOY!!
