You're going to do great! The key is to feel good, and it sounds like that is your natural state.

*blushes*
I didn't know we'd started a new thread. I've been wondering why the other thread is so slow.

Oh, well, if you don't mind, I'll copy a post I just made on the old Secret thread:

I have a tricky situation that's off-topic but I'm posting it for two reasons: 1) I'm trying to apply the LOA in every area of my life and 2) You guys just give such great advice.

So...I've fallen for a friend, which is a tricky enough situation in itself, but- the main problem is, he's kind of involved with somebody. It's not too serious, and I don't really see it going anywhere, but it's still a hard situation for the moment.

Any advice on what I should do? I would never tell him how I feel while he was involved with somebody-I don't want to get between them. But how do I make myself feel better right now? It's hard on me, hearing him talk about her, knowing he's talking to her. I've always been jealous, and I'm trying to keep that in check, but it's tough.

TIA.

But you know what, money anxiety is scary, too. And it makes me not able to breathe. And it doesn't help me be a better lawyer or serve more people or be a better person.
Remember part of my favorite quote by Marianne Williamson....

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light, not our darkeness that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brillian, gorgeous, talented and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. You were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

It's great that you're getting everything you're manifesting. Perhaps you could manifest some guidance, some strength, wisdom and courage to handle the new tasks!!!

BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE!!!

Fek&Fuzz, you might also remember the part in the Secret about driving at night, and how you only need to see what's in your headlights, and you can go all the way across the country. You may not know now how you will do all that you will be asked to do as an amazingly successful lawyer, but you don't have to know now. You just have to do the next thing. And the next. Like breathing. In one of the Abraham/Hicks things they say abundance flows to us like the air; it's always there unless we resist it. You don't worry about what you'll breathe tomorrow... you just breathe right now. Let go of whatever resistance you find, and it will all flow to you. Congratulations, and enjoy!

Jealousy is a product of insecurity.

Every one of us has a "core value" that we place upon ourselves. Let's say that a newborn's "core value" is 1,000. Now, the newborn grows and becomes a toddler. The toddler is told that pulling the puppy's tail is wrong.

A little while later, she pulls the puppy's tail, knowing that it's wrong to do so. Deep down, she feels bad because she knows she hurt the puppy on purpose. So, that's -100 from her core value.

A few days later, she gives her toy to a little girl that is crying because her house just burned down. She knows this was a good act, and she feels really great about it. That's +200 to her core value.

What's my point?

My point is that you need to work on your core value. Actively focus on doing things like volunteering, cleaning up your house, spending time with your children... things that raise your value TO YOURSELF. Focus on feeling good about what you're doing.

This will take your focus off of your friend, AND it will help you stop feeling jealous (because jealousy comes from insecurity, so the less insecurity you have, the less jealousy you will feel).

My cards for today:

Voyager: The hanged man (reversed): I notice today the bright star the man is holding in his hand, and the swirl of the water vortex. The broken scissors (which is actualy a stork), and the broken goblet. For me, a reflection of the chaos that I felt yesterday. The star is a reminder that light can be found in any darkness, if you choose to see it.

EMF card: Integration: definition: 1. a process of becoming whole; 2. the intermixing of people, groups, or apsects of self, previously segregated

I needed to read that today. Thank you for posting it (and do you mind letting me know which book it's from?).

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.

Vikki
Puddleduck,

I love your name by the way.

your Post made me giggle.. I could see your energy shift as you typed it.. cracked me up...

keep posting.
I also am so glad to see you are in the UK....

how many people here are from places outside of USA/Canada?

I really like the thought of Secret/LOA MDCers' turning lights on all over the globe, kwim?

post #90 of 2309
by the way.. I have been emailing all my friends the link that coreybreeze put up in personal growth...

coreybreeze put up a link where anyone who is still looking for The Secret but can't buy it right now and or wants to have other friends watch it...put it up ... this link has the movie.. but better go quick, you know how these things get shut down kind of quickly.

Just a few things:

1) I am loving The Secret audio book. It's a great tool for me, just to be able to listen to it as I go about my day. I've been listening to it at night before I go to bed rather than reading, and anytime I get a few minutes during the day, I sit down and listen and really focus for a few minutes. It's a lot easier for me to absorb the message just by listening than having to sit down and watch the film.

It seems like every time I start it up, it's at the perfect spot for me. It has 4 discs with a total running time of 4 hours, so I haven't got all the way through it yet.

It has the basic ideas of The Secret, but then goes even further. It's answered so many questions I have.

2) Funny videos are a huge mood-lifter, I've found. You can find a bunch on YouTube. It's a great way to lift your spirits, and they're usually pretty short so you don't need much time to watch a few.

3) I've been preparing to write an article for Mothering for a few months now, and I have just not been able to get started. I haven't been able to find the creativity and motivation. I was inspired yesterday to start a parenting blog that is deeply connected with the Law of Attraction, and as soon as I had it set up, I started writing the first blog post, and soon realized that I wasn't actually writing a blog post- I was writing the article! It's now coming along quite nicely. Just goes to show that you need to not focus on the "how".

Has anyone else experienced this:?

I find myself soooo excited or anxious about really wanting something and working hard on manifesting it and then once I've actually got it - once it has come to pass it seems so . . . normal. Like, what was the big deal?

I've since manifested writing gig after writing gig. Exactly what I wanted. I remember a few months back sooooo wanting and wishing for it and now it's part of my every day life - like it's always been this way.

I'm working on manifesting a big contract. A big one, and one that I want very much because it will allow me to manifest other things as well. I, too, am anxious and nervous, but I just keep trying to feeeeel myself working on this project and reaping the benefits it's going to provide.

Thanks guys. You are so right. I do only need to see as far as the headlights reach and I am going to manifest the glory of God that is with in me. I am going to let me light shine and not hide it under a bushel.
I was talking about it with my boyfriend, and it got more real and I could picture it more and more and could breathe as I pictured it.

There is nothing stopping me.

Linda - have you checked out the "Manifesting a body I love" thread in Personal Growth. LOTS of great stuff there. I've been working through the same issues (boy, I'm just full o' resistance!) and that thread was instrumental for me in making peace with my body and allowing it to be healthy and strong.
post #96 of 2309
First of all, I want to say thank you all so much for welcoming me into your group! I can just feel the love and empowerment flowing through all these posts.

You are all so insightful and wonderful!!!

I was going to post to individuals, but there's just so much to say ... I will say congrats and good luck to everyone for now. Oh, here's what I wanted to remember especially:

MsChatsaLot - thanks so much for that quote!! It is so enlightening, and it gave me the courage to do something I was doubtful about a few posts before, which is to comment on this:

Linda On the Move - You are SO RIGHT about the body image thing.
Quote:
Then I realized that I do the same kind of thing, but with body image. Most of the women I know who are slender and attractive do really unhealthy things such as extreme dieting (like living on diet coke and slim fast), having botox or plastic surgery, etc. It all really icky stuff that I don't want to be a part of. Yet, I really want to manifest a healthy weight and to feel pretty. I realized that if I keep associating being thin and pretty with what I consider undesireable behavoir, it is going to be really hard for me to attract a healthy weight. So I decided that I need to manifest some friends who are healthy weight and look great because they eat right, exercise, and really love themselves!!! These women MUST exist, and gosh darn it, I want them for friends!
And I am going to say... I AM ONE OF THESE WOMEN! I struggled with my self image for a long time, and now today, I am happy as can be at a weight of 152 for my 5'8" frame. Am I thin? Yes, I'd say so. Am I a skeleton? No. Am I hot as hell? Sure am! And I DON'T do any of those unhealthy things. I eat healthy (but I am not one of those saintly veggies only types... I eat real food when I want it!), exercise often-ish but not crazy (my job as a preschool teacher keeps me on my toes), and I LOVE MY BODY. I get compliments all the time on my round butt and sexy legs. (Right now, I am trying so hard not to feel like I am being conceited but I am powering through. I'm hot and that's nothing to be ashamed of! ). I think it's possible for anyone to feel this way! It wasn't always this easy - after years of being unhappy about my weight and my body but never being able to do anything about it, my mindset just... changed... a year ago and it was incredibly easy to lose 15 lbs and get in shape! I wish I could tell you how I did it. But it was definitely a manifestation... a cute guy to check out at the gym helped too

And I would be pleased as punch to be your friend

Just to butt in --- this comment reminded me of how women sometimes (in this society) are damned if they do damned if they don't ya know? It is like, if you are insecure -- people are like geeeeeeeeesh, she needs to get a self esteem, she needs to feel good about herself, she needs, she needs... then if you are secure and feel good in your skin, people are like.. what a conceited bitch...she needs to get off her high horse type thing (I DO NOT feel this way about you for the record )

We need to support and celebrate eachother and I LOVE that you think that about yourself. I love that you are proudly affirming to yourself and to us how fabulous you are!

I think I am pretty damn fabulous too, even with the funk in da trunk I am manifesting a body I love too -- that, and cashflow are the last two frontiers as I am really peaceful, happy, secure, fufilled in myself and my relationships, grateful etc...

Anyway, keep on keepin' on woman ....

post #98 of 2309
Capt. C - First off, I completely agree with you -- YOU ARE FABULOUS! I love reading your posts and I know you are beautiful inside and out.

regarding your comment to me: I know! When I get compliments (from anyone), I used to brush them off or act embarrassed because I felt that by accepting them, I was coming off as a bitch. Now, I just smile my (gorgeous) smile and say thank you. I also make it a point to find something wonderful about others and comment on it as often as possible. At least one compliment for every person I talk to each day... it's amazing how easily it comes.

Also, whenever I catch my reflection in a mirror (and no one is around) I give myself a wink and say, "Hey, pretty girl". It always puts a little skip in my step. I think everyone should do this too!
post #99 of 2309
Devon, you rock! So glad to get your (gorgeous) input here too!

You know what I love about these threads? Knowing I can come here for advice and no one's going to say "yeah, life sucks" or "poor you" or "that jerk!" Everyone here would tell me just what my role in it all is, and suggest how I might change my response to things so that I can feel my best. Knowing this absolutely thrills me!

Now, where's Kate? I haven't read a post from her in days it seems...
