Magic Keys to Manifestation

ask.-believe.-receive

By now most of you have seen the movie The Secret.  I think this movie was a great introduction to the Law of Attraction but only the beginning.  First of all it is only one of the Natural Laws that impacts the universe and second, it isn’t as easy as it is portrayed in the movie when you first start working with it.

Becoming efficient at the Law of Attraction, which by the way is working at all times whether we know it or not, takes practice.  The beginning work includes a lot of self discovery and change in order to make it possible to align with those things you want to manifest.

Here are some keys to consider as you go:

Key 1: Eliminate poverty consciousness.  That is the point of view where some people have everything and you have nothing.  The belief that you don’t deserve to have money.  I remember saying “I want to be a millionaire, does anyone else want to join me?” to a room for of women.  It got so quiet you could hear a pin drop.  I could only imagine what was going through their minds.  I am sure there was some sort of poverty or deserving program running.

Key 2: Comparison.  Comparison is the quickest way to kill the flow of energy flowing toward what you want to create.  Recognize jealousy and envy toward people who have more.  When you feel yourself comparing yourself to someone else remember your journey is your journey and it won’t look like anyone else’s.

Key 3: Dream Big.  Don’t shrink your dreams to fit your budget. Using finite thinking will just keep you constricted in your thinking and action.  Instead expand how much you want to make so that you can start having more of what your want.  The more you can expand your dreaming the more you allow more to come in.

Key 4: Birds of a Feather flock together.  It is said that if you look at your 10 closest friends you will have an indication of your success or lack of success.  Start looking for people who inspire you and spend time with them.  This will increase your ability to think positive and attract more of what you want.

Key 5: Make a mental note or keep a journal of things that are happening to support movement toward manifesting your desires.  Even the smallest steps count and make it more possible for you to believe you can have what you want.

Key 6:Make a commitment to personal development.  I think network marketing and having your own business is the greatest vehicle for personal develop on the planet.  If things are not going in the direction you want them to go you are the only one to blame.  Yes you can try to blame other people or things but ultimately it comes down to you.

Key 7: Have an attitude of gratitude.   Being grateful for what you have is magnetic.  Make a gratitude journal and write at least one thing that happened each day that brought you closer to your dreams.

Finally, don’t be hard on yourself when things seem to be going in the wrong direction.  You can start fresh anytime.  If you find yourself where you don’t want to be, pick one of these keys and focus on it for a few days and watch the magic!

A Blessing in Disguise!

182983_20140228_122541_never_never_give_up_copyLast week I wrote a blog about Facebook after the band me for life from advertising on my business page.  They never gave me a reason for this lifetime sentence.  You can read about it here to catch up: Does Facebook Control Your Business?

First of all I must say, I was doing very well advertising my business on Facebook including booking lots of parties, getting a lot of one on one appointments, which lead to lots of Loyal Customers and was signing up new distributors on a regular basis.  It was easy and I could do it right from my computer, which was why I put so much time, money and effort into building readership of my page.  I wanted it to work and be easy and I accomplished that goal.

After being band from advertising I decided to look into Google Adwords Express.  I created a ad, picked a budget and submitted it to Google and it was approved.  A few days later in the middle of the night, emails started coming in from Google saying that my ad was on hold because they felt our replicated website was making false claims, which it isn’t.  I got a series of emails over about 5 minutes and the final one said my website was banded and I could never advertise the address ever again.  I was trying to sleep and couldn’t even respond to what they were saying.  All I could think was “This is unbelievable!”

Wow! What was going on?  I knew I wasn’t doing anything wrong so maybe someone was targeting our company, It Works! Global.  It was happening on Facebook.  No one in my company can post our websites because Facebook believes they are “Spam”.  This started last year some time.  This kind of thing starts to happen when a company has explosive growth and has a product that is over the top popular like ours does.

For two weeks I didn’t have any business…zero…nadda…nothing!  In a month that I was hoping to promote and get a huge bonus, my business had flat lined!

I had gotten comfortable with all the business I was getting from Facebook and that was where my focus was.  Not a smart idea, in retrospect.  When I got blocked from Google Ads I started to think that maybe the Universe was trying to tell me this wasn’t for me and I should quit the business.  When you get that many road blocks so quickly it could be a sign.  I wasn’t getting any business and I was being stopped ever direction I turned.  Maybe quitting was what I should do.

Ah, but I am not a quitter!  I am also very stubborn.  Don’t tell me no, don’t tell me I can’t so something because my mode of operation is to rebel.  I believe there are multiple solutions to every problem and no one is going to stop me when I am on a mission.  I become even more unstoppable when someone or something is saying “no”.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do but I knew I had to refocus and not look at what wasn’t working.  When you look at what isn’t working you just create more of what isn’t working. If I did that, I might as well just quit.

So I changed my mindset away from the not working, away from lack consciousness and toward what I knew was possible and I asked the universe to show me the way. I am in a business that is exploding, people want what I have and I just need to find those people.  Sounds easy enough.

As soon as I shifted my thinking to seeing the possibilities, my phone started ringing.  People were calling me from no where, to sign up to be customers, to have parties and to buy Body Wraps.  In the first several days I sold 15 wraps when in the two weeks before that I had sold zero.  People were calling me to become business partners in my business and they were finding me on Google and I wasn’t paying anything! People I had talked to in the past were following up with me. I was getting messages from my Facebook business page without advertising at all.   Google and Facebook were saving me money and my business was alive.

The other thing I started doing was jumping for joy and saying “Thank You” every time I got a new customer, sold a wrap, had a phone call about the business.  Gratitude is magnetic and when you are grateful the universe sends you more of what you are grateful for.  Now I was thanking Facebook and Google for blocking my way because I was seeing other ways to go.

Since I changed my mind doors have opened for me with new ways to grow my business that I hadn’t thought about before.

What I learned from the experience is when challenges show up look at them as opportunities for expansion.  When you open up to possibilities magic happens.  I think I had gotten so focused on working Facebook that I had shut down the possibilities that were out there waiting for me.  It is one thing to focus and another to be so focused you miss seeing what might be available around you.

When you are open you will find that something better is always right around the next corner.  Keep your eyes open for the magic!

Maybe All Thoughts Don’t Become Things!

robber

“The law of attraction is no “secret” and it is profoundly misinterpreted. Sometimes we attract exactly what we need to grow, and sometimes a sociopath walks through the door, one who can fool anyone. Too many people stay in bad situations because they believe they have ‘attracted’ a necessary reflection. Sometimes this is true, but sometimes it is not. There is such thing as needless suffering, and misguided manifestation. We want to go where we grow, and not everything that comes into our life is of value.” Jeff Brown

This was on Jeff Brown’s Facebook wall today and it was exactly what I have been thinking since I got robbed yesterday.  Yes, I left the house for an hour and a half and when I got home the window in my front door was smashed and the door was unlocked.  After 4 police officers search my house to make sure there wasn’t anyone still in it, I came in and looked around and thought nothing was taken because all of my electronic gadgets were still in their places.  After they left I remembered the money that I had hidden in my room.  Yes indeed, when I went to find it the place where it was kept was empty.  $400 now belonged to someone else.  It was suspicious to me that who ever it was that broke into my home bypassed everything and went write to the hiding place and took my money.  I suspect, but can prove that it was my cleaning service.

      In the not so distant past I would have launched into a period of self-reflection to determine what it was in me that attracted this into my life.  That is what a good student of the Law of Attraction does.   For some reason this time was different.  I didn’t even venture down that path of micro-analysis.  Trust me I am a master at self-reflection.  It felt ridiculous that I would attract something like this into my life, and maybe I am just avoiding something, but I think it is important that I was able to stop the analysis long enough to decide that not everything is a result of our thinking!

      I think sometimes those of us who are into self-reflection and growing consciously over analyze things, trying to understand why we would manifest certain things that don’t feel right. Nothing in my thinking was inviting someone to come into my home, violate my space and steal from me.

I decided I would not give up power to a dishonest person and be afraid to be in my own home or afraid to leave it because some unwanted person might come in. I am going to continue to trust that most people are honest and trust worthy, that the world is a good place and I am safe in it. I am also keenly aware that there are a lot of people, my kids, my neighbors, my family and friends who have my back!

     Then came the turn-around.  Someone in a thread on my Facebook page pointed out that I didn’t manifest anything negative but in fact had manifested safety by not being home when they broke in.  I manifested protection for my cat who was home alone and unharmed during the break in.  Often when something so strongly negative happens it is hard to see the other side of the issue.

     I think it is important not to micro-analyze because it can lead down a path that we don’t want to go and shift our energy toward creating something we don’t want.  Micro-analyzing take precious energy away from our focus and interrupts manifestation.  I believe if something manifests that isn’t something we wanted to create and a pattern is not immediately apparent we should use our energy to shift our focus back to those things we want to manifest.

Some situations are just situations that have little value unless we put value on to it. Maybe all thoughts don’t become things and all things that manifest are not the result of our thinking.   Our mastery is to determine which is which.

One Magic Word!

AliBaba1964MoheebAnimation

It is January 3rd and my business is all a buzz! I have had an amazing amount of interest in my It Works Global business opportunity with 12 people asking for more information in the first two days.  I have two strong prospects that will join who have large networks, one of the things I have been looking for in business partners.  Two people booked parties.  This is not the normal activity for me!!!

What happened?

Here is what happened.  On New Years Eve I sat down to write my list of intentions for 2014.  I do intentions rather than resolutions.  As I was about to write “My List of Intentions for 2014” my inner guidance said “Accomplishments”.  I immediately changed it to “My List of Accomplishments for 2014” and I felt a shift inside of me.  Not a small shift, a BIG energetic shift! It was as though the word “Accomplishments” was a magic word for me, like “Open Sesame”, that magical phrase in the story of  Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves where the phrase opens the mouth of a cave in which forty thieves have hidden a treasure.  I felt like I had found my “Open Sesame”!! and like magic something opened up in me.

I have consciously used the Law of Attraction successfully in my life for many, many years and it has also turned out to be a great tool for self discovery because of what happens when you start working with it. I say I have consciously used the Law of Attraction but we are always using it whether we are aware of it or not.   The simplified version of the Law of Attraction is

thoughts+become+things

What you think about and focus on is what comes into your reality.  Using the Law of Attraction I would sit down each New Years Eve and set my intentions, which were statements about what I wanted to achieve.  It is like planting seeds for the future.  It becomes a great tool for transformation when you start digging up the seeds to see how things are going.  I have three specific ways that I dig up the seeds and it is by asking questions.

The first question is When?

The moment you ask the question when, you have brought doubt into your visualization.  When places a timeline on what you want to create and has the reverse effect.  It lengthens the time it will take to manifest.  It is like pulling the seed out of the grown to see if it has sprouted roots yet and popping it back into the ground when you see that it doesn’t.  This seed now has to re-establish itself and get back into growing.  I am so guilty of asking “When?

The second question “How?” is my nemesis!

In the Law of Attraction ” The how is the domain of the universe” and none of our business!  Being the good business people that we are we want to know HOW!  Now we are grabbing that seed by its baby leaves and yanking it out of the ground!   How gets me in trouble every time.  I start to look around at everyone else who is climbing the ladder of success in my company at rapid speeds and say How is this ever going to happen for me, I don’t know what they are doing to move so fast.  Now my gears are spinning and I am focusing on the wrong thing and guess what?  It is going to take longer for my desire to manifest!  How always throws me back into “When?”  The truth is once the seed is planted just let it grow!

And the KILLER of all questions we can ask is ” What am I Doing Wrong!”

Once you ask the question “What am I Doing Wrong” you have entered the slippery slope.  You might as well just put your foot on the seedling and just squash it, because it isn’t going to grow where you are going!  Now its about comparing what someone else is doing with what you are doing.  Thinking about all the times in the past that you did something and it turned out “wrong”.  When you ask the question what am I doing wrong, your mind makes the picture of what you are doing wrong and now you are visualizing the very thing you don’t want to happen.  That is a business stopper for sure and I am guilty of it!

I have learned a lot about myself asking those three questions about my business and I am a better person for it, but does it help my business grow and succeed?  No!

We are here to follow our own unique path, whether it be in business or in personal life. There is peace in knowing that each one of us is on our own unique journey that is unfolding perfectly. Mine will never be like anyone else’s and we can’t do it wrong! We fall out of peace when we judge and compare our journey with someone else’s. There is no right or wrong way to walk our path. Our journey is perfectly designed to learn specific things in our evolution. If there was a better way for us to evolve, personally and collectively we would be doing it. Embrace the journey and be you.

So back to my magic word and why I think it is so powerful.

Look at the four words we use when making a list of things we desire and tell me which one resonates with you.

  1. Resolutions: the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc. : the act of resolving something (always focused on a problem to be solved)
  2. Goal: Something you are trying to do or achieve toward which you direct your effort
  3. Intention: an idea that you plan to carry out, something you mean to do whether you pull it off or not
  4. Accomplishment: from the French word acomplir which means to fulfill, fill up, complete. Something you have completed successfully.

What happened to me when I used the word “accomplishment”  it put me on the other side of what I desired to create as though it was already complete.  It had already happened!  In the Law of Attraction experts always say start at the end and build from there.  From the end you can see the complete picture of what you want to create.  What this word caused in me is a KNOWING that my list was already completed and all I have to do is GET OUT OF THE WAY and watch it unfold!!

I coupled my List of Accomplishments with another powerful word “Shall” and created a list of things that would support these accomplishments.  Shall is a word that is not commonly used in the United States.  Listen to  the definition and you will know why it is more powerful than the word will.  Shall: something that will take place or exist in the future.   Shall is future tense, expresses determination. In the field of law the term “shall” means “mandatory”.   Believe you are creative and you shall become creative.

Using the word Shall creates a field of dynamic magnetism around you and it is mandatory that it happens.  For example on my List of Accomplishments for 2014 I wrote “I shall achieve the rank of Ambassador Diamond” and by saying it that way it becomes mandatory that it happens.  Now the universe steps in to match the energy of the proclamation bringing fresh inspiration, action and serendipitous events.  What I have noticed is I am inspired to do certain things and new inspiration is dropping in to lead me where I need to go.

Words are very powerful and it is important to pay attention to them!

You know how you feel when you have accomplished something? How it feels to get that pat on the back for a job well done?  When I wrote my List of Accomplishments for 2014 I could almost hear that imaginary crowd cheering and feel that pat on the back.  I really feel like I HAVE accomplished them!

This is my Finished Accomplishments for 2014.  I wrote them by hand in calligraphy.  If felt important to me to write them by hand because that taps into that part of your brain that is imaginative, trusting and creative. I wanted it to look like an award so I put stars on it and framed it.  I included a photo of myself because that way I am included in the energy.  As you can also see I am dreaming BIG.  Why not?  If this is already a done deal I might as well go for the best.
