How many times have you let another driver ruin your day?

How many times have you been on the commute to work or the school run and allowed the actions of another person to put you in a bad mood?

Do you feel ‘slighted’ when you let someone out of a turning and they don’t say thank you?

Does your ‘good deed’ then turn into a feeling of resentment that you let such an inconsiderate, bad mannered person out instead of just going by and leaving them stuck?

What right do we have to feel affronted that they didn’t say thank you?

It is not our God given right that when we do a good deed the other person should show their gratitude?

Who are we to judge?

Gratitude, who rather the showing of gratitude is a man made courtesy. We, as humans, have programmed ourselves to think that if we do something for another then they should show gratitude by saying “thank you”. Yes, I agree, it is something that I feel not enough people do, and as a society we should strive to ‘bring back’ good manners. However, it is not our right! We have no right to expect a show of gratitude from another person. Just because they did not put their hand up as they drove off to say thank you, does not mean that they weren’t grateful.

Also, do we do good deeds to receive thanks and praise? If so then the deed is not so good after all. It is merely a means to us making ourselves feel better, hence we feel slighted when we do not receive the gratification we feel we deserve. Good deeds are for the benefit of the other person, making their lives a little easier or better, not for us to receive an ego boost for being such a ‘good’ person!

If you give with an open heart and expect nothing in return then the universe will reward you. That is reward enough. Do not allow another’s actions to ruin your good intentions. Getting angry by a persons lack of ‘manners’ only results in you having a bad day. Once you allow the resentment of your good actions to seep into your thoughts then you stop noticing the good in everything else around you and instead focus on the perceived mindless, inconsiderate actions of your fellow man.

The supermarket is a classic example of what I’m talking about. How often do we step aside to let someone by with their trolley only for them to walk past without even looking in our direction, let alone being polite enough to say ‘thank you’ or even send a smile our way! We then spend the rest of the visit grumbling to ourselves about the ‘lack of good manners now days’. I bet some of you have even then gone out of your way to obstruct the other persons path when you’ve met them in the next isle, making them wait until you are good and ready to get out of the way??? Come on, we’ve all done it lol.

Here in the UK we are especially fond of manners. Some may say we are even a bit OTT when it comes to having good manners. We get frustrated when we are on holiday at others apparent lack of manners, when in fact they just come from a different country and culture with different traditions and etiquette. They are not being bad mannered, we just perceive them to be because they don’t fit into our ideal behaviour.

I have to admit that in recent times there is definitely a rapid decline in social etiquette and politeness. Everyone seems to be in far too much of a hurry too have time for the simple things in life like please and thank you. Now there is an expectation that it is our right to be let out of turnings or into a lane on the motorway. We think people should get out of our way in the supermarket isle. What right do they have to block our path? What happened to common courtesy and living harmoniously with one another?

I guess that the only way to change things is to lead by example. Carry on with your good deeds, give generously, but give without expectation. Give for the sake of giving and making another person happy. This act in itself is thanks enough.

Image result for doing a good deed quote

So the next time you let someone out while driving along or move aside in the supermarket isle, don’t feel despondent or resentful if the other person doesn’t show appreciation, just go about your business knowing that your small act of gratitude will come back to you when you need it most. The universe is always listening and responding to our actions.

25b6f4ea2434e4dba408ba82a68cbdf4

One final thought. We never know the lives or circumstances of another, therefore we cannot judge their actions. We also don’t know how much our small act of kindness may have changed their whole day. Think instead of giving as a small act of love and your heart will be filled with joy and you will be eternally rich.

Love and happiness

Law of attraction · Law of Compensation · Manifesting · Spirituality

Are you pushing money away?

Have you ever wondered why the Law of Attraction doesn’t seem to be working for you? Why you are still struggling with your bills and never seem to have enough money?

If you answered yes, then let me ask you some more questions.

How do you think, talk and act when it comes to money?

Are you constantly thinking about how much things cost and telling yourself you can’t afford them?

Do you avoid certain shops because you think you can’t afford what’s for sale inside?

Are you watching the letterbox waiting for the ‘dreaded’ post to come and bring you more bills?

Yes?

Then you need to stop that right now!

By thinking, and acting, this way all you are doing is inviting more lack into your life! That’s right. You’re sitting at home sending out lovely little invites to the universe for all the horrible things you don’t really want in your life!

It’s like inviting your worst enemy to your birthday party, complaining that you had a horrible time because they were so mean to you all night and then inviting then to your next party!

Consider this, if you change your mindset and start to look at money differently what’s the worst that can happen? Your life stays the same and nothing changes? But seriously, that’s not going to happen! Things will change. you will change. Your life will change. Maybe not in a…..’OMG I won a gazillion, trillion pound on the lottery’ type way, but it will definitely change for the better.

The law of attraction sends back to you what you think about, what you talk about and what you feel. The law of attraction doesn’t know you don’t want more debt or more bills, all it knows is that you keep sending out signals of lack and it just sends you more of the same back. The Universe is thinking…….

“Hey this girl/guy must be really happy with the way things are for them. They can’t stop putting in requests for struggle. Well, let’s send her/him more of what they want!”

You can see where I’m going with this.

To get more money flowing into your life you have to think more abundantly!

Below are some pointers to help you on your way:

  1. STOP THINKING ABOUT LACK! Thinking this way only serves to attract more things into your life that cause feelings of lack or not having enough. Instead focus on feelings of abundance and having more than enough.
  2. STOP TALKING ABOUT NOT HAVING ENOUGH! Everything we talk about increases the vibration we send out to the universe. When we talk about lack we are literally putting in a verbal order for more of the same. It’s like going up to the drive-through and asking for “more debt please!” ER, NO!
  3. START THINKING ABOUT MONEY IN A POSITIVE WAY. When you think about money, think about it in terms of having more than enough to go round. Think about it as if you can buy whatever you want, whenever you want. Think of money as something that you don’t need to worry about and something that is ever flowing effortlessly into your life.
  4. SAY “I CAN AFFORD TO BUY WHATEVER I WANT”. When you see something you like, say to yourself “I can afford that.” Don’t question it, just know that you can have anything you desire.
  5. YOU DESERVE IT! Get it into your head that you deserve to live a prosperous and abundant life. It’s nothing to be ashamed of and it’s nothing more than you deserve.
  6. IT’S MINE ALREADY. You must believe that you can have anything you want. You must believe you have it already. Having thoughts and feelings that it is not here yet will only attract more not having it yet. You must think, and feel, like it’s already here and the universe will conspire to ensure it comes.
  7. HAVE GRATITUDE FOR WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE. This is so important! To attract more into your life you must show gratitude for what you already have. If you look at what you have with feelings of it not being enough then you will never have enough. I saw this on one of my apps today and thought you might like it.

“Observe a person’s car and you will learn something about it’s owner. The cars that are sparkling clean are evidence that their owners appreciate them. The cars that are very dirty and messy are not being appreciated. One person is attracting even better cars, the other is attracting lesser cars. Appreciation for the things you have is using the law of attraction intelligently.”

  1. GIVE GENEROUSLY. Give what you can. Be it your time, your services, give love & appreciation, give your unwanted items to charity, even if you just put £1 in a charity collection or give it to a homeless person or busker it starts the flow of money.
  2. ALWAYS GIVE MORE IN TERMS OF VALUE than another can give you and you will always be rewarded. For example; I sold my daughters old bike today. It was in very good condition and a very good bike. I sold it for a very small price, much less than it was worth, but it was enough for me and what I wanted the money for. The lady who bought the bike, however, bought it for her daughter. The bike will last her many years and means that she can join with her family in regular bike rides and outings that she has struggled with up until now as her old bike was not suitable. Therefore I gave more in terms of value than I received in money. I know the universe will reward me.

The sooner you change your mindset, the sooner your financial situation will change. I know it’s hard to change the way you have been programmed to think but it is possible and the power is in your hands. You can start today to change your life for the better. The more you think of money in terms of abundance, the more money will flow effortlessly into your life and the more you will have to continue to think this way.

Say affirmations:

“I have more than enough money.”

“I love money and money loves me.”

“Everything I need comes to me easily and effortlessly.”

“Every day I am more and more abundant.”

“I attract more money every day.”

“I have more than enough to go around.”

Try it for yourself. Not only will you feel better about your current situation because you will be focusing on the things you have in your life already that you are grateful for but you will notice the universal shift as your circumstances begin to change.

Try making notes every time money comes into your life. You will be surprised at how quickly it all mounts up when you really start to take notice. If you get a money off voucher at the supermarket or find some loose change down the side of the sofa, maybe a friend will treat you to a coffee or you get something ‘buy one get one free’. All these manifestations of money being gifted to you by the universe add up and it’s surprising by how much when you really start to take notice. The more you notice and show gratitude, the more will flow into your life and before you know it money will no longer be something to worry and stress about, it will be something the flows effortlessly into your life in greater and greater quantities each day.

Let me know how you get on.

Love and happiness

Law of attraction · Life Purpose · Spirituality

Time to stop procrastinating and take action!

Whether you believe it or not the universe is always sending us messages and guidance. Whether we choose to follow that guidance is up to us. It is so important that we are aware of the messages being sent to us, they are guiding us on the path to our life purpose.

I am a strong believer in synchronicity and intuition and think it is so important to pay attention to everything that is going on around us. Everything, and I mean everything, happens for a reason. We are either meant to learn something from a situation or person or teach another person a lesson to help them on their own path.

We are being guided constantly to make decisions and take actions that lead to our life purpose. When we fail to see the signs or hear the messages we will continue to be sent more signs and messages until we finally get the hint!

I have been procrastinating a lot recently (a shameful trait of mine I’m afraid to say) and I have been sent many signs to push me in the right direction but I keep ignoring them and making excuses as to why I can’t follow the path I am being guided towards. Mostly through fear. Oh the dreaded fear. The stumbling block of so many of us. I often teach people to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’, a great book by the wonderful Susan Jeffers, but how often do I ignore my own advice?

Well today I have had another ‘gentle shove’ but this time from myself!

This morning I decided to read my cards. I haven’t done them in a while and just felt the need. I chose my guardian angel cards as they are so beautiful and always fill me with a sense of comfort, even when the messages are not what I was expecting, or wanting, to hear. Below are the three cards I pulled this morning:

I really don’t think the message could be much clearer, do you lol?

This is not the first message I have received, I have been trying to ‘ignore’ the others. Why? Because I am a big scaredy cat! I have very little faith in my own abilities and if I’m honest I am terrified of rejection and ridicule!

There I said it! I’m scared. I’m frightened that the world will take one look at my writing and laugh in my face! “Who does she think she is, trying to be an author?”, “Who would want to read that trash?”. You get the picture. This definitely stems back to childhood and a demon I have not yet slayed. I’m working on it though. Every day I face another fear and walk right up to it, look it in the eye and walk right on by, sticking two fingers up as I go! This is just another hurdle I have to jump.

So because of the cards I have pulled I have decided it is time to stop procrastinating and get my arse in gear!

I have already started my book (some time ago if I’m honest) and have now decided to set aside some time each day to work on it. I have begun to put together some of the ideas I have jotted in various notebooks around my house and have made the choice to commit to my life purpose instead of just showing an interest in it.

I will let you know how the progress is coming along and will continue to keep you updated with my Law of Attraction journey.

I wholeheartedly believe in having a life purpose and in the Law of Attraction. I believe in intuition, synchronicity and divine guidance.

Watch this space……………….

Inspiration · Law of attraction · Learning

My learning journey. The story so far….

I started this blog to journal my Law of Attraction learning journey. I have learnt so much over the last few months, both about the Laws of the Universe and myself. I believe I still have a long way to go in ‘cracking’ this Law of Attraction malarkey but I am certainly well on my way.

I have learnt that happiness most definitely comes from within. Money, success, adoration, material possessions, none of that can make you truly happy. Sure all these things can help and they do make life a lot more comfortable but they do not make you happy in the literal sense.

“True happiness does not mean that everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.” – Unknown

To find happiness in life we must first look within ourselves and find happiness there. We must learn to love ourselves for who we are, warts and all! Only when we can love ourselves and be happy in our own skin and in our own company can we be truly happy in our lives.

Image result for to be friends with yourself

Never has a truer word been said. We should never look to others to make us happy or feel good about ourselves. In doing so all we are doing is setting ourselves up for disappointment because sooner or later, whether intentionally or unintentionally we will be let down or hurt by the other person and the feelings of neglect, rejection, disappointment, hurt, anger, loneliness and resentment will rear their ugly head. Relying on someone else to increase our energy is no good for us or them. We must learn to build our own energy through inner peace and true connection with God and the Universe.

Finding happiness within sometimes means facing the demons buried in the far reaches of our subconscious minds. The reason we seek material pleasures to make us happy is often due to a feeling of lack somewhere else in our lives. We tend to collect trophies and use them like comfort blankets to protect us from what is the real problem. This has been the hardest part of my learning journey and something I am still working through. I have come such a long way in such a short space of time. I have unearthed demons I did not even know existed anymore they were so far buried. I have begun to find inner peace. I have learnt to connect to God and the universal energy that is all around us. My trouble is staying connected. Not letting negative vibrations enter my energy field. Not letting other people zap my energy and influence my state of mind. It is so easy to slip back into old habits and revert back to old paradigms. It’s a behaviour we have to unlearn. It takes practice and perseverance. It takes courage and strength.  Most importantly it takes belief and faith!

Since I started this journey I have manifested better relationships with my friends and family. I have seen people leave my life who I thought would be in it forever and I have seen the true colours of their soul. I have learnt valuable lessons, which is why those people were sent to me in the first place, I just didn’t see the lesson straight away!

Image result for stop punishing yourself about things in the past

I have learnt that it is OK to love myself. It is also OK not to love myself sometimes as long as I accept that it’s OK, learn from it and move on.

Image result for stop punishing yourself about things in the past

I have learnt that the past is in the past, it is no longer reality, it is merely a memory, a memory that cannot be changed or undone and so it is not worth worrying about. What’s done is done, it’s been and gone, I survived, no-one died, the world did not end, forget about it!

It serves no man to punish himself over things that have passed. 

I have managed to manifest a healthy bank account. I have gone from living in my overdraft to having plenty of money and not having to worry about how I’m going to pay my bills. I’m not saying I’m rolling in money (far from it) but life is certainly a lot more comfortable now then it was six months ago. I don’t worry about money anymore. I have learnt that the more you give the more comes back to you. This goes for everything in life. Money, happiness, love, joy, kindness.

The most important thing I have learnt on my Law of Attraction learning journey is that we are all here to serve God and one another. To fulfil our life purpose and find true happiness we must look within. We must follow the inner guidance of God and the Universe. We must commit our lives to the service of others. Spreading love and joy, happiness and abundance to all who we meet.

Take notice of all the people and circumstances in your life. Watch for the lessons and synchronicities Listen to your intuition.

Find your inner happiness and you will find the source of everything you desire. Your life will overflow with joy and you will be abundant in every way imaginable!

Love and happiness

Catherine xx

Manifesting tips & tricks to boost your progress.

For some reason there is an error on this post. It is not displaying properly in the reader. You may have to go directly to my site to view the complete post. Sorry for any inconvenience 😊

I have been dreaming a lot recently about writing this post but, as is the nature of a Virgo, I’ve been procrastinating about it! Mostly because I often lack self confidence, a trait I really need to work on. Anyway, today a fellow blogger ask for some pointers as they were stuck with something they’ve been trying to manifest. I realised that this was another gentle ‘shove’ from the universe not to ignore my dreams and intuition and crack on with writing the post! So here goes………..

Back to basics:

Image result for visualisation

Rule no one when trying to manifest anything is to first visualise what you want. Now visualisation is different for everyone. Some people find it really easy to summon up vivid, clear pictures of exactly what they want as if it’s on a TV screen in their head. Others, myself included, can’t always do this. That doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong! It simple means you have a different way of visualising. I like to sit quietly, where I won’t be disturbed, close my eyes a try to ‘picture’ what it is I’m trying to manifest. Like I said I don’t get clear pictures in my head, it’s more of a faded water colour floating in the background, but I know it’s there and what it is.

Image result for visualisation

The next step is to connect with your  vision, whether it’s a vivid image or just a blur, now feel it. Feel how you would if you already had it in your life. Feel the excitement, the joy, the love and gratitude. Hold that feeling, let it build inside you. Feel your vibration getting higher and your energy growing. Believe it is yours. You have already manifested it. Feel it. Now, let it go. Release it to the Universe and trust it’s on its way, like an online order if you like. All you have to do now is hold that feeling of gratitude you have and know it’s coming.

If you start to doubt, just sit again with your vision until you get the feeling back again. It is this feeling of gratitude that keeps you on the same vibrational frequency as the thing you are trying to manifest.  By staying on the same frequency you can do nothing else but attract it towards you. It is not only the law of the universe but also the law of physics!

Vision boards: 

Image result for vision boards

Vision boards are so much fun and a great manifesting tool. I like to do a new one every spring to symbolise new beginnings but you can create a vision board any time. You can also add to them or remove things as you go. All you need to create your own vision board is –

  • Craft card or a flattened cardboard box, you could also use an old cork board if you prefer
  • Some magazines and/or pictures you’ve printed off of the internet
  • Glue, tape or pins
  • Coloured pens/pencils
  • Stickers, glitter & anything else you fancy to pretty up your board

All you need to do now is get creative! Find images and quotes that inspire you and represent what it is you want to achieve. Have fun with it. Don’t limit yourself. Look for things you think are impossible, remember this is about manifesting whatever your heart desires not just putting a few pictures down of things you are already likely to achieve. That does not mean however that you can’t add those things to your board it just means you need to think outside the box.

Image result for vision boards

Nothing was ever achieved without someone first thinking it was impossible.

Focus boards:

A focus board is the same as a vision board but instead of being a collection of all different things you want to manifest it focuses on just one thing. Be it a new home or a new job or a new car. Your focus board will be all about this one particular thing. If it’s a new car put the exact colour, the alloys, the interior, words to describe how it feels when you drive it, what it smells like, the engine size………you get the picture.

Remember your vision board should be somewhere you can see it every day. When you look at it it should evoke feelings of excitement at its impending arrival!

Gratitude book:

Image result for gratitude book

My gratitude book is one of my favourite manifesting tools. I write in it every day, normally before bed so I go to bed full of gratitude for the blessings I have received throughout the day. The trick with this is to write in all the things you are grateful for that day, even the tiny things, you’ll be surprised at how much you have to be thankful for. I also write my gratitude intentions, all the things I want to manifest as if I have already received them. See my previous post ‘Get your gratitude on’ for more on this tool.

Image result for gratitude book

Remember that gratitude is the key to the Law of Attraction.

Reiki box:

Image result for reiki box

This one is new to me. You can now get a Reiki box app for you smart phone. You can add and remove intentions as you like then open it daily to send Reiki to your intentions. Intentions are written in the present tense as if they are already here, giving thanks and gratitude. It’s a great little app to keep you focused when on the move. You can also have a Reiki box in your home and write your intentions on a piece of paper. Like I said this one is still new to me and I’m still learning.

I hope you find these tools helpful. Feel free to share some of your own manifesting techniques as we can all do with a helping hand sometimes.
