I highly recommend the book "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" by T Harv Eker.

Woo-Woo Wands

In the Appendix of "Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting," author Lynn Grabhorn describes how to make what she calls Woo-Woo Wands out of wire hangers. It's a way to play with energy - and it really works!

You cut them in an L shape, and put straws around the shorter part. Hold them in front of you (as she describes, like you're holding a gun - I've never held a gun, so maybe that's why I did it wrong at first ) and think about pleasant and unpleasant things. If you're thinking about something unpleasant the tips move toward eachother and touch. When you think about something pleasant, they move away from each other. It really works!

I'm going to show it to my 7-year-old son tomorrow, now that I got them working correctly. (I had them too long, so they were probably too heavy to move freely.)

Nikki - That's so fantastic about your house!! Keeping fingers crossed... I also didn't know you could put time limits on things. That's good to know! I am not a patient person and I feel like I would give up too quickly, or at least start experiencing doubt.

MsChatsaLot - Thanks. I needed that : I am new at this, it's going to take me a while to get into my Inner Fabulous! You and Amris and everyone here really helped.

I have been reading some of the LOA books, and following most of the threads here for some time, but I only watched The Secret for the first time tonight ... and I have been buzzing for hours!! It was like being hit in the head with a big "DUH!!!!" moment.

That part of the movie where one of the teachers tells you to really look at the backs of your hands, study them, and then close your eyes and imagine yourself driving your dream car ... WHOA! That was so powerful for me!!!! I was RIGHT. THERE. And I didn't see my dream car, I didn't even really see a specific car, but I was driving. I was feeling all the power and freedom and absolute JOY of driving that car. The rush of the wind, and the speed and the amazing sense of freedom just swamped me. I was there. And that car was me! My life! I had power and freedom and joy driving my own life! I can still close my eyes and FEEL it!!!!

Okay, sorry for the caps and the exclamation points, but it's like something opened up inside me. Something that makes so much sense and just poured into me.

I've often felt like there were times in my life during which I was in a state of limbo. Tough times, times where I didn't have any direction but I felt all this change and upheaval. They came in cycles, almost exactly every five years. And I knew they were times of learning for me, but it was like I'd get stuck in that limbo land and be so bogged down by those feelings of uncertainty, by fear, by despair and hopelessness, and it would take me SOOOOO LONG to figure out just enough of what I was supposed to be learning to climb out of the limbo and go on until the next limbo.

Well, I've been in that limbo land again for the past year or so. BUT, I feel so open now. So open to learning what it is that I finally need to learn! To taking power and knowledge from that and building the life I want! I see possibilities and opportunities before me. I feel joy. JOY!!! I feel so light. So absolutely on my way. Like I'm finally ready to stop waiting to live the life I want, to have the life I want, and to do it already.

Does any of that rambling make sense to anyone else? I am in the most amazing mental and emtional state right now, somewhere I've never been. And I KNOW I can continue to be there. I know that I am amazing, that I have the power to create my perfect life, that I have the power to create all of the freedom I want. Isn't that incredible!?!

No, I guess I'm not ready for Oprah yet.

2 great things tonight, though -

1. our community meeting - there was a huge outpouring of support for starting our educational farm. It was really great. Now the School Board meets on the 8th to deliberate. I feel so energized by this process, despite all the waiting and nail-biting!

2. I FOUND A RENTAL FOR US! Just found it on craigslist tonight - EVERYTHING we've been looking for: $300 less rent, free W/D on the premises (goodbye, laudromat!), close to where we're building our house, cats OK, 1.5 baths (goodbye, peepee dance! ), and a BACKYARD (hell-ooo Spring veggies!).

I'm going to call first thing tomorrow and try and get us in!

I like what Abe-Hicks has to say about $ but at the same time I'm put off by it as well. Having traveled to parts of the world in abject poverty I have trouble with that as a 'choice'. I feel more like other people chose that for them in a game to get more wealth for themselves. I know that's very un-LOA but it's my honest feeling on it. I know my being poor won't help that any, but I also shudder at the thought of the excesses we seem to worship here.

I am very much into voluntary simplicity. I've always viewed it as something empowering and uplifiting... and now I'm starting to question that. Like maybe my fascination with VS was a way of denying myself abundance. I don't know. I'm still pretty torn about it. I will get Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and see what it does for me.

Man, isn't it crazy how much LOA can shake your worldview to the very core. There are so many ways of looking at the world that I'm questioning now. It really throws me for a loop sometimes.

I don't 'believe' that manifesting lots of 'stuff' would make me happy - some stuff - yes maybe but i'd have the same 'me issues' if i had lots of money - for me i work on manifesting soul nourishing things - sunny days, friends, good relationships with family, health. That being said i am currently trying to manifest a new house

I'm finding it a bit hard to 'buzz' at the moment - quite frankly its hard finding the time with a 2 year old and a 6 month old who are full of snotty cold. But at the same time there is nothing that takes you to that happy place as well as being with your children.
I'm also trying to move away from doing things / or not doing things motivated by fear. I think that is where wanting a lot of money comes from the fear of having none.

And i'm trying to avoid all media - i turned on the radio today to hear about the estimated temperature for the planet rising by 3c over the next 50 years - it really scares me what my children will inherit - so putting a positive spin and seeing / feeling my children grow up in a healthy / happy world is my no:1 manifestation at the moment.

I'm also trying to give things away rather than sell them - going to go through my loft and clear everything out and find it all a good home & start packing up as the universe shoudl be sending me my new house soon (with a big garden to grow veggies and keep chickens).

I've just fininshed reading Excuse me..., i'm half way though Ask..., and i've finished Divine magic. Divine magic is about the Seven Sacred Secrets of Manifestation - a new interpretation of the Hermetic Manual 'The Kybalion'. Its a nice short book, quite easy to read and fills in some of the missing bits from the other books.

Has anyone read any of the Jane Roberts / Seth books? I know that Ester Hicks was a fan. I started reading one when i was pregnant with ds2 and planning my unassisted birth as Laura Shanley also talked about the seth books and creating your own reality. I reaslise now where i went wrong when planning my pain free labour - focusing on the pain free aspect just brought be lots of pain and a really long labour! Should have focused on orgasmic childbirth Anyway back to the point - i read some of the seth book but found it hard going so i stopped with a feeling that i needed to go away and read other books and come back to it later when i was ready - i think that might be the time now.

You know - just typing this has really picked my vibrations up - must make a contribution to threads more often rather than just lurking!

Visualising you all having a fantastic day.

Cards for the day:

Voyager: Child of wands, Seeker: The first thing I notice in this card is the woman with her face turned towards the sky. The second thing I notice is the very large mouse. It reminds me that when we seek the truth, and do not turn from it, we become something larger than we seem to be. That the smallest amongst us is actually gargantuan in Spirit.

EMF card: 2 cards presented themselves today: 1. Self-Acceptance: definition: recognition of one's own worth and abilities regardless of past or current circumstances. 2. Persistence: definition: firm continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

I'd say those two are pretty self-explainatory.

I am trying to be completely geared up about all the great things I am going to manifest, but I am also feeling kind of bogged down in "wordly" thoughts. I can't focus on what I want because I keep focusing on what I don't have... does that make sense?

How do you de-clutter all that and start attracting great things?

Meanwhile, I had my tarot cards read a few weeks ago, and she told me the same thing she told me last year - that I am surrounded by a wall of jealousy that is keeping great things away from me, that a lot of great stuff (including my true love : ) is supposed to be coming to me but it's being blocked by this wall, and she didn't have any real suggestions for what I could do about it... any thoughts?

That absolutely makes sense. In fact, I think it's one of the main points to really "get" - unfortunately I just got up and am not in the frame of mind to try to explain (and I did try and had to delete : ). Maybe someone else will, or I'll try to come back later.

Then for awhile, why don't you try to just focus on all the things you do have. Start to keep a gratitude journal and start to see how wonderful your life is already. As Hicks/Abraham say...we can't help but to launch our desires, but we need to get into the place of allowing for them to come to us. So...get yourself in a place where you are happy and grateful and things will start to change.

But then you judge the experiences of others. Who is to say that the people in poverty are not happier than those in extreme wealth? Who is to say that extreme wealth is a bad thing? Everyone chooses their life's journey to experience. It is the contrast and having contrast is important.

The thing about those living in extreme poverty is that they may not have 'chosen' that life consciously....but before they came to the earth, their vibrational energy did want to experience that. Perhaps in their offering that contrast, more of us will get to choose experiences to help.

I think when you CHOOSE voluntary simplicity because you KNOW you have the CHOICE of either simplicity or decadence, it is a wonderful thing. But when you CHOOSE voluntary simplicity because you fear decadence or hate it...you are no longer a vibrational match with your true self.

I just noticed this on the main board. Dh and I just watched this a few days ago. I loved it! Yesterday we decided to write down our goals on paper and for 21 days before we go to bed we're gonna say each thing out loud, imagining each one and then tieing something emotional to each thought. We're doing the same thing before we wake up as well. And we're always trying to BE POSITIVE. Sending out good vibes ~~~~ DH really has helped me with this. If I feel myself getting frustrated, I try and stop myself and just think of how GOOD my life is. How blessed we are. Always trying to focus on the positive and not the negative!

I've been recommending The Secret to everyone I know. I think everybody should definitely watch this!

Now off to read the rest of the thread.

This is a variant on the old, "all rich people are bad people" concept. It's prejudice.

Something you have to remember. If no one were rich, everyone would be poor. Would this somehow make it better to be poor?

Rather than wishing wealth upon everyone, you prefer to wish poverty upon everyone?

One wealthy person can do 100x more (with only 1/100th of their wealth) for the poor than can any 100 poor people.

By keeping yourself poor, you keep yourself from taking responsibility for your beliefs. If you believe that the poor need help, then by keeping yourself among them, you keep yourself from being able to help them.

post #56 of 2309
It's been a rough week... but a good week also

My mom is back in the hospital for her kidneys but this time I'm able to stay calm about this and accept that it's what she *choose* for herself... I feel better about her sickness than I ever felt before because I realize that I'm not the one in charge of her wellness... I'm ready to let go of this role I had in our twisted family dynamic and let them be as they wish without wasting my energy taking everything on me.

DH's truck broke down wednesday night and I had to get him in the middle of nowhere in freezing cold... then the towing took forever to arrive the next day and DH was getting angrier by the minute... but I remained calm almost all the time, knowing deep down that we would be OK, that it would be a small repair, that we would be able to pay for it without trouble... I only lost my temper once and it made DH realise how silly and counterproductive his growing anger and retaliation talk were :

Now, I want to surprise him when he'll come home from his vacation week-end... I want him to come to a nice clean home and a happy loving wife - so I better get off my butt and start tackling some hot spots

What about really exploring how you would feel if did make admit everything that you would like him to admit? Obivously, you believe that it would make you happy. Exactly how would it make you happy? How would you feel about yourself? May be you could try finishing the sentence "I want him to admit he misses me and he was stupid BECAUSE...." as many different ways as you can. Then I think that you should manifest those good feelings -- but let go of the manner in which the universe brings them to you. You can get all the good feelings that you so want without any help from your ex!

In something I read, it said that once we begin to understand how good we can really feel that we no longer have the need to ask another to be different for our sakes.

totally makes sense!

Chaning what we focus on is changing a habit and it takes time. I find I easier when I listen to nice music during the day, and make a point to direct my thoughts back to something positive when I discover they have driffed to something negative. Be gentle with yourself though -- beating yourself up for negative thoughts is a really negative thing to do! Sometimes I imagine a little bubble around the negative thought and then the bubble just floating away.

Focus on what you are gratituful for. I keep a gratitude journal and before I go to bed I write down at least 5 things that I am grateful for. I recently started a Book of Positive Aspects as well. It has a page for different people/things/places in my life and I write down the things that I like about them on the page. I have a page for my DH, one of each of our kids, each of our pets, our home, my favorite indian resturant, my car, etc. Some of the pages are silly -- like the page on my vacuum (I REALLY like my vacuum!)

My DH thinks it is funny that I have 3 journals going -- but one is sequential (the gratitude journal) one is topical (The book of positive aspects) and one is random (I have a spiral notebook that I do different LoA exercises in).

Money is not an area when either my DH or I have a lot of resistance. He makes a nice living and we have a comfortable life. We actually live beneath our means. We could afford a larger house, but we used to have one and we didn't like it. We are just happier in a house where we can hear each other and things are a little chaotic and we really use all the rooms!

It seems to me that you are equating having enough money for the things you need and want with a life style that you find distastful. That is a totally bogus idea. In reality, having the enough money means being able to make real choices about what you prefer for your family.

Quote:
If I had millions of dollars, I wouldn't want any of those things and I'd want to be rid of it ASAP.
Sometimes people with the most money are in the best position for doing good. Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffet, and Richard Branson come to mind. The are wealthy beyond all reason, but are now using that extreme wealth to make real changes in the world. Rather than just giving token amounts of money to slightly improve the status quo, the Gates have been researching what really works and finding ways to really change things.

The sums of money given by Branson and Buffet are staggering.

Quote:
I know, it sounds so judgemental even as I write it... but that's the feelings I keep having.
We are all here to discover our preferences and then to manifest them. We are not all going to prefer the same things. There is no reason for you to manifest a boat if you don't want a boat! At the same time, I think that judging other people for the choices they make only puts negetivity in your life. It really is no different than judging the kind of food they eat, their sexual life, etc. It really isn't your concern. Your concern is to figure what you prefer and manifest it.

Quote:
So the visualizations that involve those symbols just are completely counter productive. I'm trying the prosperity game but can't think of much to buy.
May be it would help to research some rich people who give alot to charity and think about how you would love to be able to do the same. Here are some links to get you started:

http://www.gatesfoundation.org/default.htm

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16057153/

http://money.cnn.com/2006/06/25/maga...ex.htm?cnn=yes

The LoA says that we see what we want to see. You can choose to see people using their money in wonderful ways.
post #60 of 2309
Hi I am new to all this, sort of. I manifested some things in my life, like dh but didn't know I was doing it. The last couple of years I have been in a slumpBUT I found this stuff again. I must tell you there is alot good vibes coming out of these threads...

I am waiting for my copy of the book Secret and trying to get the gist from all these post. Is there a book "Law Of Attraction" are just different authors about the subjects?

I wanted to comment on the wealth and abundance and the poor messages. I was feeling the same thing about all that wealth being just too much and disgusting (no wonder we are having money issues ) until I thought, I mean, reallly thought about wining a like 60 million dollars. I mediated on winning and how I would feel and what I wanted to do with the money. When I thought about what to do with the money there were thoughts of taking extended family trips to buying tents for the homeless people to starting a non-for profit organization to helping clean the environment. I wanted to include giving money for poor AND middle -income people for college scholarships. What I realized was I wanted all the money to HELP people not buy flashy cars or homes.

It changed my thoughts about having the excess wealth and abundance. I hope that made sense.
