A Law of Attraction Reminder From A Runny Nose

October 14, 2013

Funny thing (or not so) happened in church on Sunday. I’ve battled a nasty cold all week, and felt significantly better that day. As a result, I was able to enjoy my renewed energy there that morning. However, as the pastor asked us to bow our heads and close our eyes, the remnants of my cold kicked in. It’s kind of gross, but I’ll share anyway. My nose starts to run. I mean, like it’s running away. And I don’t have a tissue.

The last thing I’m thinking about is the pastor’s prayer. I’m thinking…what am I going to do about this? OK, I admit it. The thought did cross my mind. Everyone’s eyes are closed and heads are bowed. No one would know if I used my sleeve. However, I knew God was watching. I didn’t want to gross Him out : )

What next? Well after a few semi-helpful and not so obvious sniffles to keep things at bay temporarily….Two things…one is I began praying. Maybe not what everyone else was, but I prayed for help, and that the pastor would hurry up and finish! Two, I kept thinking about tissues and how I could get one. My daughter was next to me so I would ask her. If not, I would just have to wait and make a mad dash to the restroom and hope that the runny nose wasn’t as obvious as it seemed.

Finally the pastor finished and we were able to lift our heads. I’m still focusing on tissues and asked my daughter immediately. She looked but had none. Now what?? She was smart enough to ask a friend. She had what seemed like a 10 pound bag. However, it had everything but tissues.

So now we are asked to stand. My daughter made me feel a bit better when she said it was not obvious that my nose was running. However, I still needed a tissue and just peacefully waited until the final blessing. As we were asked to stand, a big smile appears on my face. I am now reminded that, during many of these powerful services, people are moved to tears. There are tissue boxes all over the church! I look to the alter (only two rows away) and several full boxes are right there. The final blessing is given, and I make a mad dash to the alter, and….GOAL ACCOMPLISHED!!

This may seem like a crazy example, but it further proves the point of the Law of Attraction, and that when we focus our thoughts on something, it comes to pass. In this example, I first prayed for help. Then I visualized the end result. I did not visualize the messy potential. Of course it crossed my mind, but my primary thoughts were on what I wanted…the positive solution of finding the tissues to solve my problem and make me happy.

This is a small example, but it shows that for even something as insignificant as a runny nose things can work out for my best by maintaining the right thoughts. It can work for you in far greater situations too by following this same process. Pray for guidance. Then focus on what you want. Avoid focusing on the negative or the obstacles. Instead, focus on the solution and the realized goal. When you stay focused on that, you will automatically be led to take action. For example, as I focused on the solution of finding the tissues, I was reminded that many tissues are available throughout the church. It was just my job to go get it when the opportunity presented itself.

OK, have I shared enough personal details for one post? You can think of me if this ever happens to you. Seriously, I was reminded of the correspondence of this event to the Law of Attraction, and felt the need to share it with you. I certainly hope my nearly embarrassing situation can help you. Have an awesome day : )


Don’t Have The Time?…Find It!

October 12, 2013

I often share about the importance of finding the time to pray, meditate on your goals, and visualize life as you wish it to be. This is because you often receive what you focus your thoughts on. The problem is that, as easy it is to spend a few minutes praying and visualizing, many people don’t take this necessary opportunity. The reason is almost always the same…I don’t have the time.

I understand that time is precious, and all of us often fight the clock. My question then is this. Do you have time to watch your favorite TV show each week? Do you have time to read novels from that author you love? Do you have time to read all of the bad news in the paper?

I’m not saying there is anything wrong with watching your favorite program or reading your favorite book. My point is that, even though you don’t have time for so many things, you MAKE time to do those things. My point is that if you can make time to do those things, you can easily make time to pray, visualize, read the Bible, etc.

It’s all about deliberately MAKING the time to do these very important things. I was learning this the hard way. I wanted my life to change in a big way. I knew I had to pray, think positive thoughts, and visualize the successful life I was dreaming about to make it happen. However, I often went many days without doing any of it. My life wasn’t changing. In fact, I was getting more frustrated, and I was heading in the opposite direction. I then realized that the only way I was going to get that time was that if I deliberately took it myself. No excuses. I was going to do it no matter what, regardless of the situation. It even helped me double task, as I still watched the sports I wanted to watch, and just did some of the mental exercises during the breaks. I will say though, it’s best if you can fully focus on your thoughts, God’s word, etc.

This concept is true for anything in life. If you want to get in better shape and have been putting off exercise, you simply need to deliberately block off the time to do so. If you are looking to call that friend you’ve been meaning to speak with, it’s just a matter of purposely setting the time aside to do so. Sometimes this is easier said than done, but the more you deliberately put time aside for these important things, the more progress you will see. Even more amazing, is the more you do this, the more it will seem that you have more time available to you. It’s the same 24 hours a day, but it will seem like you have more if it.

I challenge you to think of something you’ve been meaning to get done, but put off because of lack of time. Use that excuse no more, and deliberately put aside a chunk of time to accomplish it today. Even if you don’t completely finish the task, you will be much closer than you would have been, and you will feel better about it. You will also be less likely to procrastinate and will quickly set up another time where you can complete it.

I have accomplished so much more in my life since I just decided to deliberately take time to do the most important things in life. Yes, I still have a lot less time than I would like, but if you deliberately seek the time to pray, visualize, or do whatever you are looking to do, you will find it. Enjoy the blessings : )


Avoid Circumstantial Evidence

October 5, 2013

Why is it many people don’t achieve their goals in life? There are several reasons. One big one is that they pay too much attention to circumstantial evidence. For example, the evidence shows that they still don’t have what they want, so they dwell on that fact.

What happens when you dwell on the fact that the achievement of your goal still hasn’t arrived? Unfortunately, it brings more of the same. You receive in life what you focus on. If you focus on lack and that you don’t have what you are looking for, you will continue not having it.

You may be saying, “how can I argue with the evidence”? The truth is you can’t. However, I will tell you there is more evidence to go by. I will provide the crash course version here. You are a spiritual being, surrounded by the spirit of God. This spirit makes up your being, and it is connected to everything else in this universe. In essence, you already have everything you can ever want. It lies in this spiritual realm that you and everyone else is a part of.

The key then, is to focus on THIS evidence. Even though you cannot see it in the physical, your desire exists in the spiritual realm. Once you grab hold of this and believe it, you will maintain your focus on the end result and soon see it occur in the physical world. Remember, whatever you consistently focus your thoughts on is what you eventually experience in your life.

Keep in mind that it may not happen right away. Sometimes there are reasons where God wants us to wait. Don’t become discouraged if this happens. If you maintain a faithful mindset, and know you will eventually see it, you will. Also, there are times when receiving what you want is not the right thing. Do not fret. You will only receive something better if this is the case.

I remind you again to avoid relying on circumstances to get you closer to your goal or make you happy. You can always be happy and confident if you focus on the spiritual evidence that tells you that what you want already exists and that it is already a part of you. It is simply up to you to believe it and keep your mind focused on these positive thoughts.

How do I know this is all true? I have seen overwhelming evidence in my own life. Enjoy the blessings : )


When And Where To Find The Answers

October 3, 2013

We all want the answers, don’t we? And we want them now! Whether it’s for the test in school, or the obstacles in life, we want the answers. And those that have them are incredibly powerful.

I will ask again. Do you want the answers to whatever questions you have in life at this time? Well I am not going to give them to you. Not because I want to be mean, but because I want you to discover the simple truth if you don’t yet know….YOU ALREADY HAVE THE ANSWERS!

The answers to any questions you have lie within you. It’s a simple solution, though some may say this is not true. I will say again that you already have the answers you are seeking….if you will look for them and be open to receiving them.

So how do I find them and when can I receive them? I will answer the second question first. The answer often varies depending on God’s timing. However, I will say that if you want to be lined up with His timing, you need to stay in the present moment. You cannot look to the past or the future. Those with the answers look solely at the present moment.

This leads me to the answer to the first question. If you focus on the present moment, you are much more likely to connect with your spiritual self and the God who created you. When you focus on the present, and the all-powerful spirit that is part of you, it is then that you open yourself up to the guidance you need…the guidance to provide the answers and direction you are seeking.

To sum this up, I found an amazing quote that says this perfectly. I will share the first part of it here…

“Once you have learned to focus your attention in the present moment, you can begin to refer to your intuitive faculties for direction. These intuitive sources are your direct link with the totality of your being.”

For the rest of it, I recommend you check out this link….

Here you will see further why your intuition will provide the answers and solutions you are seeking.

Remember, you have unlimited power within you. Use it and rely on it to find those answers that have eluded you for so long. It can potentially change your life. Enjoy the blessings : )


Why Should I Seek God And His Kingdom First?

October 2, 2013

Every once in a while I have what I call “light bulb” moments. I always enjoy these moments where the light of new understanding shines in my being.

One such moment occurred today. In one sense, the information is nothing new. I’ve known the Bible verse of Matthew 6:33 for years…seek first God, His kingdom, and His righteousness, and everything you seek shall be given to you. It’s a common sense verse that I have easily understood for a long time. I also understand the importance of following this advice, and I do my best to do so. I’ve shared about this verse in different ways on this blog in the past.

I have also known for a while that we receive in life what we focus on. If we focus on positive outcomes we generally receive them. The same is true if we keep our mind negatively focused.

The breakthrough came for me today as I put these concepts together. I had some meditation time, and it’s amazing how much of my “breakthrough information” usually happens during those times. Here’s the simple 1+1=2 fourmula….we receive in life what we focus on. So when we focus on God, we receive all of His attributes and blessings. That’s why seeking Him first brings us everything else in life. It’s mainly because He is everything else as well.

This revelation really simplified the concept for me, and I now share it with you. Instead of trying to focus on many different things (which only leads to confusion), keep your focus on God, His kingdom, and His righteousness. Remember, you receive in life what you focus on. Keep focused on Him, and the kingdom will be given to you. You will be led to do your part, and things will fall into place for you without you having to scatter your energies and become stressed. You will be focused in the right area at the right time, and you will receive peace, blessings, and success.

I remind you again…seek first God and His kingdom and righteousness. Keep your focus there and you will reap the positive results. Enjoy the blessings : )
