Well, I did a multi-quote, but I know I still missed A LOT of what I wanted to respond to.

Poor Oscar peed all over the table and holy crap, there was so much blood! Poor guy. He is SUCH a sweet tempered thing, he hasn't been crabby at all. Who'd have known he was in pain? When we got him his teeth were rotting out of his head to the point where he stank. We thought it was just stink from the pound for a few weeks (and the pound people didn't notice - including the pound's "vet" who examined him - hmph). And despite having to get half his teeth pulled because they were rotten, he was a sweet, lovable, upbeat cat the entire time. He's just awesome So now to manifest (or, um, help him manifest?) a quick and easy recovery


Linda, I enjoy fiction and that's been bugging me lately. I picked up some "young adult" books that looked interesting from the library (I don't worry about "grade level" I read what I like, snort! ). Why is it that "young adult" seems to mean "really depressing, life changing, horrible events"?
Sorry I missed the original post about your kitty. I lost my own precious big black kitty last September to cancer (he was only 3 yo ). When I took him in, the vet said it was amazing that he was still able to walk around. I knew he wasn't feeling very well, but had no idea to what extent - so he was hiding his pain well, too. I'm glad that Oscar's illness is treatable. and quick recovery to Oscar.

I like to read young adult books too - they're usually easy, quick reads, and I don't have time for long novels these days. You're right though, they're usually pretty depressing. There's one I liked called "Stargirl" I think - I can't remember the author right now. It was a while ago that I read it, but I don't think it was depressing (or I'm just remembering the happy parts).

I gotta be honest here....I wasn't even a perfect parent BEFORE I became a parent!! I knew I would be a WOHM, so I think I tried not to set myself up for too much mommy guilt by saying, "This will be this way, this will be that way" And you know what?? I was able to let go of mommy guilt before ds turned 1! Wahoo!!

Oh yeah! I remember devouring nasty horror books as a teen, and now I don't know how I ever managed it! I can't read or watch anything that's a 'downer' anymore. I need feel good, happy endings! (But I still like to shove sugar in my face either way. )

Much love and healing vibes to the wonderful Oscar. He sounds like a beautiful being.

I really love the idea of adding things instead of taking them away. It's a very positive approach! A friend of mine does this with her diet... adding in a salad each day, rather than saying she's eliminating bread, for example.

I love young adult fiction, and have found some wonderful books that way. I find the fantasy books seem to be what calls to me most. Have you read His Dark Materials by Philip Pulman? (I may have to come back and edit that author's name...)

If anyone is still looking for LOA fiction, I read Charles de Lint's Widdershins over the last week and there is a ton of LOA in it. Not his greatest book ever, but still very good.

I once heard that your mind does NOT hear negatives. So, if you tell yourself, "I will not eat chocolate" your mind doesn't hear the NOT. I think this is pretty true, I also think that most of the things we say we won't do are things we have a hard time not doing.

Is this also true with LoA. Like, if you are trying to do an affirmation (which yes, be definition is positive right? : ) you would not want to have a negative?

So, here's my situation: we still have some Easter candy at home and I don't WANT TO EAT IT. I'm having a hard time thinking of a good affirmation. Right now I have: I make healthy eating choices each day. I choose to fill my body with nourishing foods.

Unfortunately, that still leaves room for chocolate in my devious little brain...chocolate makes you happy. Being happy is nourishing, etc!!

Ack! I want to eat chocolate only on special occasions! Not just because it is Monday and I finally got ds to sleep!

Help!

I read the Pippi Longstocking books again last year. They were my favorites when I was little and I still love them. The name of Pippi's friend must've stuck in my unconscious mind all these years b/c I named my daughter after her and didn't even realize it.

Can I join you guys? I was trying to read all of that main secret thread but It is too daunting.

I am manifesting this week:

I am so grateful that I will hear I got my dream job (which I interviewed for a week or so ago) before Saturday when I leave for vacation.

Ooh, thank you! Don't worry though....I'm so far from Mom of the Year that I can't even see her from where I stand!! Actually, that's not true. I'll bet ds would say I do a pretty good job, even if I'm cranky when he wakes me in the middle of the night!

Re: happy endings. I think it kind of depends on what you want right then. I mean, sometimes I don't want a happy ending because I WANT to be absorbed in my misery before I get through it, so I'm not ready to hear how other people persevered, KWIM? I *want* to hear that this or that ended badly, because I want to feel I'm not alone. I think it is healthy to "wallow" for a bit, *sometimes* (key word!! Not every time something happens!)

How about "I love chocolate and chocolate loves me".

I love this, cracks me up:

Quote:
11 — Yes is a really cool word

Lenedra Carroll wrote “The Universe Always Says Yes.” When you say, “I’m broke,” the Universe says, “Yes.” When you say, “I’m rich,” the Universe says yes. It’s impersonal. It’s just all yes.

I love the word yes. It sings. It allows. Start hearing yes more often. Start saying Yes to your life, even if you think you are the most messed up human on the planet. Laugh a little at all that drama. Start accepting and allowing your life���s flow. Say yes more often. Smile when you do it.

Because really, how can wealth and energy and flow find its way to you if you are constantly saying “no” and closing the doors to what is your life now?

Anybody game?

Ok, this keeps coming up in my life again and again. I'm really intrigued, but I'm wondering about doing something this drastic while nursing. I understand that the detox can be a bit heavy, and that it can have an impact on nurslings as well. Anyone have more info on this? Or links/information regarding modified diets that go slow to limit any negative effects?

Liz, I checked out that second site and her story had so many yummy sounding recipes in it!!

You got it! There's no such thing as 'NO'. The universe just hears you putting your attention on it regardless of whether you're hoping to draw it in or push it away.

I think your affirmations are great! Now here's what I do... I let go of thinking chocolate is bad for me. I can eat anything I want. My body knows how to enjoy all foods. I am open to the good in anything and everything I eat. That makes me feel much better than trying to avoid something I want. And the more I allow myself to have whatever I want, the less of an issue I have with wanting 'too much' of something.

Oh! True story of a choco-holic! There was a time I would eat any kind of chocolate at all, even the crappiest stuff available. Since I started buying myself good chocolate, and eating it whenever I feel like having it - without guilt! - I no longer feel the need to wolf down the stuff I don't even like. I actually threw away two big bunnies that were brought into the house, because they just weren't good enough to eat. (This is huge for me!)

I missed your post too Andrea. You know I posted 2 or 3 times here and had a hard time getting involved until I THREW myself in! It was funny the first time I posted and no one responded I remember thinking that "no-one liked me". I have since realized this is a common theme in my life and as soon as
I am in a good place and not worrying about everyone else things click a little better. (I am not thinking any of this relates to you except that I had my own funny way of getting myself in the door and most of it had to do with ME! )

I am in a silly place with this too. We used to be super strict about what we would eat (b/c of all the "bad" things in everything....sugar, preservatives, hormones etc.) Well, since LoA I have been letting myself have what I want and feel good about it. This has been an interesting experiment! I have eaten SO much candy in the last few weeks (I haven't eaten candy in YEARS!. besides a little dark choc.). So anyways after completely binging yesterday I decided I didn't want anymore. BUT....today a few pieces looked desirable, SO I ATE THEM! I just figure the less I "beat myself up about it" the more likely a healthy balance will ensue. I will keep you updated...and my vote is eat a few pieces and enjoy it!!!!!

First off, I used to do the "No one likes me" thing too....then I stopped, mainly because I realized that I didn't care. I am a cool person, and I can't control whether or not someone likes me, so if they don't like me, too bad! :P

eat a few pieces and enjoy it!!!!!

That's the problem!!! I can do the second part (enjoy it), but the first part (a few pieces....hmmm. Not so much!

I'm liking "I fill my body with nourishing food" I think it will help me realize that *sometimes* chocolate IS nourishment, but not always.
