LoA March 11-17 - Page 2

post #21 of 787
Dang it, I missed starting the new thread again... and probably will next week too, since I am going to NYC for St. Patrick's Day (green beer, here I come! ) but I'm over it anyway... Having the other thread NAMED AFTER ME was all I needed.

I love the idea of starting with intentions.... although I will, of course, start with multi-quoting.

This is so cheesy and self-absorbed of me to re-post this, but I really wanted it to be part of the new thread too, as a reminder to myself and all of us!!

Ok, I know this is going to be *old news* for most of you, but I just can't help it! I finally REALIZED, well, I guess crystallized and put into words my growing awareness over the past month or so. It's amazing... I just feel so FREE. So here it is: (I know I'm preaching to the choir but it is unbelievable how good this feels)

Life is too damn short not to be happy RIGHT NOW. The whole PURPOSE of life is to BE HAPPY. Everything you aspire toward, all your goals, are leading to one thing -- HAPPINESS. So there is NO REASON TO WAIT. No reason to think, "I will be happy when..." or "I would be so happy if..."

There is also no reason to:
a) Be afraid. Ever.

2) Give a flying hoot what anyone ELSE thinks, especially people you couldn't care less about

c) Do things that you don't care about or that don't make you happy and never will.

I have been noticing more and more the sheer amount of people in the world who just plod through their days, trying to get to... what, exactly? Go ahead, start asking people how they are and count how many people say "Ok" or "I'm alright" or "Eh" or "Same shit, different day". And I used to be one of them! At the risk of sounding super-cheesy, I have to say this:

Every day is a gift. I know, call Hallmark, we've got a fabulous new insight here!

But seriously. What makes that elusive day in the future when you're going to be so happy any different from today?? So why not just BE HAPPY TODAY? As my friend Jenny stated so eloquently, "Life is not going to happen. Life is NOW. THIS is LIFE."

I have just started excusing myself from conversations about how miserable anyone is, or how they're just trying to make it to Friday, or anything like that. My co-worker Rose said yesterday, "If you can't go home, lunch is the next best thing." And I thought, "Yeah. I love going home! I love lunch! But I ALSO love every minute that the kids are here. And I love driving to and from work!" People seem to enjoy being miserable. It's becoming an art form in our society. And I'm done with it. I'm done with not feeling absolutely wonderful all the time. There is always something to be happy about. Always something to think of that will put a smile on your face.

When something shitty happens, it's not easy to get over it, BUT YOU DO. Especially if it's something that you can do nothing about. I think it was one of the Abe/Hicks things that said, "If you know you're going to feel better about this in the future, why not just feel better about it now?"

My Endless Crush got MARRIED. He ran away with his adorable girlfriend (who, by the way, looks just like me) and eloped. My cousin (one of the very few who is not already married) just got engaged. Six months ago, these two pieces of information, combined with the job loss situation, would have thrown me into such a tailspin of self-pity and hysterics that I may never have recovered. Now, I just feel GREAT. I am so happy that they are happy. I am THRILLED that I am free of crushing on him and wondering if we'd ever have a future together (he's so not my soul mate, by the way, it's no big loss) and caring about what he thinks. Their happiness does not in any way take away from mine, and in fact it makes mine grow.

I also no longer care to waste time on people who are not nice to me. I am tired of sucking up to people and practically begging them to be my friends when I don't even LIKE them. WHY did I ever do this? I know I'm awesome, and if you don't agree then it's YOUR LOSS. The people who do agree are ALL I NEED.

I am FREE. I am free of stressing. I am free of waiting. I am free of wanting.

LIFE IS GOOD.

Back by popular demand:

Daily cards:

How interesting.

Voyager: Three of Cups; Love: This card shows male beta fish schooled together, which is unheard of, they're very aggressive fish. It shows, as well, a vase that is literally pouring out flowers into a goblet. Behind that is a fantastic bunch of roses in various shades ranging from yellow, to orange, to pink, and an ocean wave backlit in golden hues.

EMF card: The Unconditional Love card was lying on top, and I felt compelled to go with it as today's choice: definition: 1. the ability to love without judgement; 2. an intense feeling of deep affection

Together, these cards remind us to love in ways that are beautiful, golden, and without judgement. That simply by virtue of being human, and being connected to us, those in our lives deserve to be loved. If we will work to give love, our goblets will overflow with beauty and bounty.

It seems to me this is an indicator light on your personal dashboard telling you that you aren't getting the proper nourishment for your body and you need to give it some attention. If your aren't nourished, your little one won't be either.

I believe there is a way to balance both your little one's allergy needs and your body's nourishment needs. I'm thinking that some homeopathics, NAET, or some other natural method of allergy elimination (body talk, cranio-sacral therapy), etc. would be good for the both of you and help both of you be a bit more balanced.

Affirmations:
"I am guided to the practitioners that can help us the most."
"My body is in balance."
"My body is healthy and strong."
"I receive adequate nourishment from the foods I eat."
"The foods I eat are sustaining me and my child."

I'd also talk to your little one's spirit and get her involved in the healing process. When my oldest ds was very sick as a baby...I talked to his spirit and it helped guide me to our healing. They know.
I currently have someone doing Reiki on Kira and myself. So far, she did a fairly long treatment on Kira last night. Hopefully, she'll get to me today or tomorrow.

I will simply say that I have manifested funds for some NAET treatments, and am waiting for the gestation period to come to fruition. So for the time being... yeah.

First of, Amris ... I know you are eating all raw. Are you open to adding raw dairy/raw egg yolks, and some coconut oil (or other high quality fat liike what is found in whole, raw dairy)? If you are open to it (and have a source for good raw dairy), you could make a raw smoothie with the milk, egg yolk, fruit, raw honey, and coconut oil which should help satiate you and help you get some weight back. Just a thought I had while reading your posts ... take it for what it's worth.

My intentions:
-Enjoy life!
-Jump back into hs'ing (we are only doing K so it's nothing huge but more of rhythm, circle time/sensory integration activities, focus for the week)
-Finalize clearing out our house and organizing.
-Purchase freezer chest for our side of beef we are picking up in a couple weeks.
-Enjoy our 85-90 degree weather by spending time outside every day with my boys.
-Journal/write/read/meditate.
-Start walking in the evenings when dh gets home from work - YAY for daylight savings time as I can go out alone and it will still be sunny!
I am open to it, the problem is that there isn't anywhere near here to get it. The nearest is in Maine.

I am, however, taking multivitamins and also taking krill oil capsules that are cold pressed on ventilated machines (so they don't heat up to cook it despite the "cold" part of the claim like most do).

And raw honey around here is... OMG. :

I use it for my dressing, but ... jeez.

I feel especially thankful for the cardinal that was singing so loud and clear outside my window as I was waking up this morning! Spring is coming!

Also, I want to appreciate dh who fixed our bed while I was out with ds this morning. The slats were all loose and sliding about leaving parts of our futon sagging. I'd been asking him to do this for, well, never mind ... it's DONE! hooray! We will all feel better, now and our backs will be better and... I'm just so psyched. Plus, he vaccumed the entire room while he was at it! And did the dishes I'd been procrastinating... Have I mentioned I this man?

My intentions for this week:

What I am giving to Spirit so I can watch it happen:

LoA/ Feng Shui

I am reading "Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui" by Karen Kingston which I . For the first time in my life, my clutter is starting to drive me nuts instead of making me feel prepared like it always has (could I have a huge-er indicator of the transformation I am undergoing? ). A very interesting point she makes is that clutterbugs like me are shielding themselves with STUFF the way some overweight people protect themselves with fat.

And the more I think about it, the more I think it must be true (unless of course, thoughts are just becoming things ). I don't shield myself any other way. I am not heavy, I am not shy or quiet, I am not anxious. But I am also not as self-assured or self-confident as I could be (up til now!). So I will get rid of my clutter and replace it with self-esteem!!! : And be all ready for Treasure Mapping.

So here's my question:
In the book she talks about a single woman whose house was filled with ducks, but they were all solitary ducks; just like in The Secret when the man had all the pictures of women turning away from him ("I do not look at you!" Talk about your great accents -- I love her). Both of these people got rid of their single Feng Shui and found love.

I don't HAVE any of this stuff! I really don't. Could I be missing something? OR is there any way I could create Feng Shui to ATTRACT a husband, rather than removing something that's blocking it?

(Meanwhile, I've been making a conscious effort to keep the front seat of my car clean and I have had more dates in the past few weeks than in the past year!)

which you do!
Thank you Tracy!
I should have been here months ago! I wish I'd found it months ago (well, years ago!), but obviously I was meant to find in thru Oprah, just last month

And yes, on the job thing. I will say that I am so grateful that before he got canned he had conquered his own block that was keeping him from succeeding there. He knows it and I know it and that made the whole thing sooooo much easier than it would have been if he hadn't.

My DH lost his job this week ( annalily...we've been through this a few times too). But the BEST thing is how positive he is about it. He keeps making little side comments about how he's being positive "like I tell him to" (as if it's not his idea or natural to him) but he's doing it!

Today at church he lit a candle of joy and concern...joy that he will be starting a new job...and slight concern as he doesn't yet know what that job is or when it will be starting.

I was beaming in the back of the church. SO cool to see him putting out positive energy!

The night he told me he lost his job we had a special dinner, bottle of wine and toasted to new beginings. It all feels VERY different -- and so much nicer -- than other times we've been through unemployment and got caught up in : thinking.

I'll be back with intentions in a bit. Time to go take a walk with the family...it's SO beautiful out today!
dharmama, that is awesome! I remember on the second Oprah/Secret show she said, "Anytime somebody fires you, you should say thank you anyway," and the members of her panel laughed in agreement.

It was honestly a relief to me when I realized I could be grateful for his new, less financially rewarding job that he has right now. Instead of always reminding myself how inadequate it seemed to be, and insisting on worrying about a *lack* of money. I am focusing on how much he'll love it there, and how much money we'll have, from there or elsewhere, very soon.
After all, he loves the new workplace and is working on getting promoted as quickly as he can. It's work he'd done for years before (before his past couple jobs in the last couple years), so he is very confident. And he is good at it.

And, Devon, thank you! for posting that. I hadn't seen it before, so I am so glad you posted it again!

ETA: Check it out! My 1000th post!!

Well, the car seat is definitely symbolic.

I just listened to a show on Hay House a few days ago where people were affirming and doing all the LOA stuff and still not getting what they wanted and it was because of underlying beliefs. Since learning about LOA, have you taken stock of what you believe about relationships? Do you feel worthy and deserving of a relationship? Are you content with where you are and in the place of receiving? If you don't have anything underlying it...then just trust the universe, be patient and listen for cues to take action to connect with that special person. And in the meantime, everyone you date will have some qualities you like and some you don't. Remember, when you know what you DON'T want, then it's easy to manifest what you DO want.

The thing about using LoA to attract a relationship is that the other person has to be ready too. But, when you are both ready....it will happen! And, it will be worth the wait!

Oh, and if you find him before my Mr.Right comes along...could you ask if he has a single brother for me?!?!?!

Congrats!! and you're welcome. I am so happy to share and raise everyone's vibe a little bit.

re: the job thing -- I just found out I am not being re-hired for my teaching job next year and I am THRILLED! I am so grateful for the new world of opportunities I have. When I posted the news on the old LoA thread, Linda gave me and Congrats!! It's such a new and wonderful way of looking at things and I am so happy you get the chance to experience it!

post #40 of 787
Hey guys! I'm having an odd day. Last night my right upper arm started hurting quite a lot. Today my right arm feels fine, but I have the exact same pain in my left arm now! It feels like a sprain, but that doesn't make any sense. Anyway I'm sure it'll just go away at some point too. This cancels our plan for further spring cleaning, which might be a good thing, maybe DH needs to concentrant on preparing for work.

Last night I was wondering about my weekly CD from Abe-Hicks and poked around on their site. I discovered that intl shipping adds $8 to the cost. So obviously I'd better cancel that subscription and order in bulk instead! Which is probably better for me anyway, because I feel like I'm going to want a lot of material for awhile and then not much.

The only thing is, I don't know whether to get the "Group Series" or "Workshop Highlights." Anyone have any clue? I guess I'll start from most recent and go backwards. I suppose if you guys don't know either I'll try getting one of each.
