Turn Up the Music and Turn Up Your Manifesting!

Music is a gift from the Universe, with it’s own magical power of making us feel happy, excited, or sad, in a matter of a couple of notes.  If I asked you the first song that comes to mind when you think of your first heart break, I am sure you have one, without putting too much thought into it.  And if I ask you what song pumps you up, I’m sure you have one of those as well.

Whether you’re all up to date on the Law of Attraction, the power of positive thinking and the Law of Abundance or not, music is an easy way for you to start creating more of what you do want in your life.

Simply put, just put on your favorite pump up song, start dancing and visualize what it is  you are wanting to achieve in your life.   It really is that simple!

Two years ago, I heard of this concept, and so I decided to give it a try.   Every day, I would listen to ‘Lose Control’ by Hedley~~ rather than singing ‘When I hear that rock and roll, oh my God, I lose control’ I would sing, ‘When I hear that manifesto, oh my God I lose control’ and it became my own personal anthem from the Universe, pumping me up to live the life I was dreaming of.

The reason this works is that manifesting requires you to be excited about what it is you are trying to attract in your life.  So if you’re just sitting there being all ‘meh’ about what you are wanting to have in your life, the Universe responds with the same feeling….they give you more to be ‘meh’ about.   But if you’re dancing around, jumping for joy, feeling full on ecstatic and visualizing what you are wanting at the same time, the Universe has no choice but to grab hold of that energy and return it back to you with the same gusto.

Back to my dancing in the living room~~ I would listen to this song, and I would see myself, on stage, speaking my truth…about my latest book, the newest concepts in energy healing and people loved it.   There was gold falling from the sky and surrounding me.   At one point, I stood with  Jacob Hoggard, the lead singer of Hedley and he and I bounced around the stage together to the song.   I thought, Man I would love to see them perform this in concert! 

Less than a month later, I had a client message me.  She had two tickets for the Hedley concert that she wasn’t going to be able to use.   She asked if I wanted them.  Of course I did!  And so, within 4 months of me visualizing, and having that one thought, I was watching them perform the song.

Anytime I am needing that extra boost to get myself pumped up for my next move in business, taking a chance on myself, I throw on the good music and state my intentions.

Give it a try!

Expect The Best Life by Expecting Nothing at All!

Imagine this:  You wake up one morning, and decide, ‘I’m going to have a good day.  I will have a positive attitude, and I will be happy until I go to bed.”  Half an hour later, a fight with a teenager has put you in a tailspin, and you’re not feeling very positive at all.  But how did that happen?  You woke up with the intention to be positive…. so why didn’t it work?

Expectation.

We all have it.  We expect to get the job we want.  We expect for our spouse to act or react a certain way.  We expect that certain behaviors will get us the rewards that we desire.  And isn’t that what ‘The Secret’, The Law of Abundance, and the Law of Attraction are all about?  Expecting great results, and then seeing them?

I had this happen just three days ago.  I woke up in a great mood, I had a plan of serenity set out for the day.  I was going to be calm, peaceful and ‘zen’; it was where my mind was at.  And then only half an hour later, I was a screaming monster, as my teenage son got under my skin (the way that he knows how) and I asked myself, ‘What is the lesson in all of this?’

It took me a few days of stewing, complaining, rewinding and replaying our fight.  It was a dumb one (as they usually are) and he pushed all the right buttons (as he usually does) to get me to react (as I usually do).  What pissed me off about it this time around that hadn’t happened before, was that it took me right off my idea of what my day was going to look like.

Arguing with a self-absorbed teen is not a positive day.  Or was it?

You see, so often, we get caught up in this idea of what is good, and what is bad.  We don’t see things as just being..  We label them.  We categorize them.  We judge them.  And we expect them to bring along certain results.

I have a sign in my house that says ‘It is what it is’.  My mom has made fun of how often I say this.  The car breaks down.  It is what it is.  The kids are sick.  It is what it is.  I would not let these things bother me, because there was nothing I could do to change them, but I had realized over the years that by just accepting them, and dealing with them (and knowing that they couldn’t ruin my day) I was able to work through them, and always found a positive spin on them.

But this moment with my teenager, my first thought was not, ‘It is what it is’.  My first thought was ‘How dare he take my day away from me!?’.  I called my sister, I posted on facebook.  I didn’t allow the moment that happened an hour ago to stay where it was… I continued to carry it with me.  He, I blamed, had ruined my day.

But…

Actually, It was me.  I ruined my day.  The moment I decided to attach that moment… that argument to the rest of my day; the moment I decided to say this is ruining xyz, rather than stating this is what it is; the moment I lost control of my own boundaries, and my own ideas of what was good and what was bad…. that’s how I ruined my day.

We all have our own power.  We all get to choose what is going to affect us and what is not going to affect us.  We get to choose how we will end each moment… whether we will let it go, or continue to carry it with us.  We get to choose how we will label each situation… is it good, or is it bad, or is it simply what it is?  A situation, in a small moment in time, that we can’t erase, that we can’t take back.

When we allow ourselves to let go of the expectation, we leave no room for disappointment.  We may go in with an awareness to any situation (I am aware that my resume is kick ass, so I have a great chance at getting the job) but we don’t need to have the expectation (I expect that I will get this job, because of my resume, and if I don’t, everything in my life is a failure).  We may have an awareness that someone is a liar, so then we are not disappointed when they do lie to us.

The next time you find yourself in a situation that has you feeling anything other than neutral, tell yourself to let go of your expectations of the results, and simply just see it as it is.  You will notice that your attachment becomes lessened as you bring your awareness to the neutrality of each situation that we encounter.  Not good, not bad, just as it is.

 

Until next time,
