Snakes and Ladders

Hello everyone,

I’ve been very quiet of late, I know, for that, I sincerely apologise.

I recently went back to work after five and half months off. I only started back part time but I immediately noticed the effect my job has on my life! Straight away I started to feel stressed and anxious. I could feel the panic slowly creeping up inside me. There was guilt at having been off for so long, resentment that in all that time nothing had changed. Still the same old faces not doing their jobs, still the same old management, seemingly either ignoring or oblivious to the fact that people were not doing what they should be. My closest friend at work still stressed to near heart attack point trying to run around doing a million and one things while someone else sits back and has a chilled afternoon because they’ve got “nothing to do”. Within the first two days I knew that I needed to make a change.

The reason I’d been off (as some of you may know) was because of a back injury, a back injury that had been made worse because of conditions at work. All those feelings of anxiety, fear, insecurity & resentment had disappeared while I’d been off and apart from my back I was really happy and content. I’d been working on my book, my blog was growing slowly and I was managing to post pretty regularly. All that went out of the window with said return to work!

One thing I’ve learnt on my law of attraction learning journey is that environment and the people you are surrounded with most definitely impacts on your thoughts and feelings, and, as we all know, it’s our thought s and feeling that determine our life.

Our environment, and the people in it, is the CAUSE, to the EFFECT, which is our life!

Boy, is my work environment causing some nasty effects! I had only been back about three weeks and I had already slipped back into old, negative, bad habits. I was tense, anxious, angry, I wasn’t eating properly, I stopped exercising, I was constantly moaning and talking about all the negative aspects of my job. I stopped writing on my blog because I was so tired and, if I’m totally honest, I was feeling very uninspired and just couldn’t be arsed!

Terrible, I know! I’m ashamed of myself. All the the things I talk about, all the things I’ve learned, all the things I’ve taught other people to do, and not to do, I just forgot all of it and slipped right down that slimy old snake, right back to the beginning of the game!

Now this is the point where I could have started to beat myself up and sink even deeper into negativesville but I chose to get straight back into the game and take my first step back towards the ladder to success. I decided that if I continued to let stuff at work bother me, stuff I couldn’t change, then I was just going to keep rolling unlucky die and sliding down those snakes, never reaching the winners square. So, I chose to look on the bright side. I’d had a little wobble, I’ve learnt that whether I get worked up about it or not, nothing is going to change, so I either need to accept things as they are and just worry about what I’m doing and not take on other peoples crap, or, I accept things as they are and do something about changing my situation. So I applied for some other jobs! I don’t know if I’ll be successful, I’ve applied for jobs that are totally different to what I’m used to, but, like I always tell my daughters;

“It’s better to be scared and try, then to not try and regret it.”

So that’s what I’m doing. I’m scared, but I’m trying. I’ve put myself out there, I’ve thrown the dice and I’ll either climb a ladder or encounter a snake, or, I might just move forward a few spaces closer to the winners square, who knows? At least I’m trying. I’m recognising what makes me unhappy and I’m doing something about it. If I’m not successful this time, then I’ll try again!

That seems to be the resounding theme at the moment. I don’t know if any of you are aware of the campaign here in the UK at the moment in conjunction with the Premier League (football/soccer) and primary school children? Well they have taken the old adage “Try, try, try again” as their campaign slogan. It’s a great campaign and it’s lovely to see so many famous faces getting behind it. Enhancing the lives of our young people by instilling good discipline and working practice in them. Reminding them that success is not always achieved first time around, but sometimes, and more often than not, after many, many attempts and perceived failures.

“There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.” – Tony Robbins

“There is no such thing as failure – just waiting for success.” – John Osborne

The moral of the story is this;

  • Do not beat yourself up for falling back into old habits.
  • Get back on the start square, throw the die and start the game over again.
  • Remember, there is no such thing as failure, only lessons to be learned.
  • Sometimes it takes sliding down the snake in the game of life to remind us where we were going.
  • Life is full of snakes and ladders. They are both blessings.

 

Love and happiness

The Three Keys To Success

Image result for three keys to success

WHAT MAKES ONE MAN SUCCESSFUL AND ANOTHER NOT?

How come some people manage to attain great success while others stay stuck where they are?

What is it that successful people do that unsuccessful people don’t?

Is there a magic formula that only successful people know about?

The answer to all these questions is very simple and can be achieved with three simple steps.

  • Continuous Learning
  • Self Belief
  • Hard Work

It’s that simple. The three keys to success behind every successful person you ever met, read about or saw on TV are the same. They may be put to you in other ways. They be broken down into smaller, bite size chunks or sold to you as a work shop or online programme; but the fact remains that all that is standing between you and great success are continuous learning, self belief and hard work!

CONTINUOUS LEARNING

I recently wrote about Jack Canfields ‘Hour of Power’ in A happier, healthier you in 3 simple steps! and one of the things he says to do in your ‘Hour of Power’ is to read for twenty minutes a day. The importance of this is that we should never stop trying to improve ourselves and our minds. Jack recommends reading motivational books, articles and news reports. Brian Tracy is another great believer in constant learning. He says:

….develop the habit of continuous lifelong learning….

We are never too old, or too young, to start learning something new. It is never too late to improve on the knowledge we already have. We can never know all there is to know about anything. Continuous learning makes us grow as human beings. It teaches us things we never imagined we would be able to do. Our success in everything from business, to relationships, to life in general starts with learning. We learn from our mistakes and our failures. We learn from our fellow man. Treat every experience as an opportunity to learn.

The key is to commit to your continued learning. Read every day. If it’s your relationships you want to make more successful, dedicate your reading to books about building great relationships and improving relationships. Learn how to look to yourself to improve on your relationships. What can you do to improve yourself and, therefore, your relationships.

If you want to make your business more successful, commit to learning more about your specific area of business or field of expertise. Learn more about your competitors and customers. Read books and magazines that relate to your business.

Seek out a mentor. Find someone who you aspire to become as successful as and ask them for support and advice. Approach them and ask if they would be prepared to mentor you. Don’t think in terms of how much something will cost you, that is not how you get what you want. You need to think in alignment with what you want, you need to match the vibration of what it is you desire.

SELF BELIEF

Successful people all have one major thing in common, they all have an abundance of self belief. They believe, without question, that they are successful. This does not mean that they don’t have doubt or worry or fear, of course they do, they wouldn’t be human if they didn’t. The difference between successful people and those who are not successful is that they don’t allow that doubt or worry or fear to stop them going after their goals. They use it to drive them forwards. They don’t make decisions based on these negative emotions. They don’t let doubt or fear or worry stand in their way. They face their fears head on and just push on through!

The key is they have a goal, a clear vision of what they want. They don’t limit themselves by thinking they can only go so far. To successful people, there are no limits. They think strategically not reactively. They match their thinking to their goal. Successful people believe that everything is possible.

Image result for you are the average of the five quote

Jim Roth’s famous quote. If you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with then it figures that you should surround yourself with successful, positive, motivational people who all have similar goals and visions as you. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and encourage you. If you look at successful people you will notice that the people they surround themselves with are all very similar in terms of success and vision.

Success is not just financial or business success. To be truly successful means to have balance and abundance in all areas of your life; work, relationships, financial freedom. The freedom to travel and enjoy life and spend time with the ones you love. Freedom to give. Freedom to help and support others less fortunate than yourself.

HARD WORK

You cannot and will not achieve anything without action! Successful people know this and work hard to achieve their goals. They know that in order to be the best version of themselves they must push themselves and take action every day. Nothing is ever achieved by sitting around dreaming. Your dreams can only become reality if you take action. Nobody can do it for you. Only you can make your dreams come true. Only you can make your vision a reality.

Image result for einstein match the frequency of the reality you want

Do what you can with what you have.

Successful people were not always successful. They started with what they had, they worked hard and they watched as their businesses grew. Lord Alan Sugar started by selling car aerials out of a van he bought for £50, in 2016 his estimated fortune was £1.15 billion!

Image result for alan sugar success quote

You may not have thousands of pounds in the bank, you may not know all the answers, but as long as you have a clear vision and you make the choice, to take the first step and not let doubt and fear and worry stop you in your tracks then you are already a success. Push yourself. Take action every day. Commit to work hard to achieve your goals. Follow the three keys to success and you cannot fail. It is the law of the universe. You are the creator of you world. Create something great!

We are the Masters of Our Universe!

Hello everyone, I hope I find you all well and rested from the weekend?

I have to tell you that I had a lovely weekend of rest and relaxation with my wonderful family. I did think this weekend was going to be a bit of a let down, as we had no plans, and after the busy weekend we had last week for my birthday, I thought it might fall a bit flat. As it was I spent Saturday morning catching up on chores (not so exiting, I know, but the end result always fills me with  a sense of achievement and pride), then I snuggled up on the sofa with my youngest daughter and ‘the hubby’ to watch a good film, followed by a scrummy dinner. Sunday was just as lazy. Tea with a friend in the morning while hubby was at the gym (I’m not allowed at the moment because of my ongoing back problem), pruning and weeding in the garden (I love spending time in my garden, even if I am working), we cooked a delicious Sunday roast, we all watched another film (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! I highly recommend it if you haven’t already watched it) and generally lazing about like a sloth!

Oh, I also had a couple of lovely walks with the beast that is Archie (see below).

IMG_20170619_195150_457
Are we going for a walk or not?

Aside from general slothing about for most of the weekend I did read two wonderful books. The first was As a Man Thinketh by James Allen, the second was The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale. Both books I have read before and shall definitely read again. The Strangest Secret was originally an audio recording that has since been transferred to eBook format but can still be listened to in it’s original format.

What I love about both of these books is their simplicity. There are no airs and graces, no pretence to be anything other than what they are. Straightforward, simple messages, that are as profound today as they were when they were first published (or, in the case of The Strangest Secret, recorded).

One of my other favourite books to read is The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles. This is another book I return to regularly. All three remind me that I have the power, WE have the power, to be, do or have, whatever our hearts desire. All we have to do is believe. Everything that is in our life now is there because of a thought we had in the past. Everything, good and bad, is here due to our own making. We have the power to create our lives and shape them any way we choose. It is us who control our destiny, not fate or our friends and family, not politicians or our employers, we are the masters of our universe and we have to take responsibility for that once and for all!

In James Allen’s book he talks about the affect thought has on our lives. How it affects our health, our jobs, our relationships and our surroundings. It is a great reminder that we must take more responsibility for our thoughts, for we are the only ones who can control them. It is us who decides if we have good thoughts or bad thoughts. It is us who decides our fate by choosing pure or impure thought processes. What we have created as our lives is solely down to us. If we do not like what we see we must change the way we think in order to change the results we get. No man can think for another. No man can impress his thoughts into anothers mind to change the way he thinks or acts. Only we can change who we are and how we think and ultimately what we create.

“Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplished anything, and never can. They always lead to failure. Purpose, energy, power to do, and all strong thoughts cease when doubt and fear creep in……….He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure.”

“As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.”

“A strong man cannot help a weaker unless that weaker is willing to be helped, and even the the weaker man must become strong of himself; he must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another. None but himself can alter his condition.”

James Allen

It is time we take stock of our lives and what we have created. Have we achieved all we wanted to achieve? Are we happy with our lot? Do we feel good about what we have and how we came by it? Now that is a question!

For if to achieve all that we can we have betrayed and hurt others, used our fellow man to meet our own gain, then we will never be happy. No matter how many riches we may gain or how much success we might have, if it is attained by devious means then it will haunt us for all our days. We will suffer in other ways, as the impurity of our thoughts and actions must come back to us. It is the law of the universe. What we think, we become. It cannot be that we have wicked thoughts and actions and not receive results pertaining to those thoughts and actions. Be sure, that in the search for greatness, you always hold your fellow man close to your heart. We are all born with a life purpose and that purpose should be for the greater good of all. We must all work together to help one another, work to improve not only our lives but the lives of others. To share in our knowledge and abundance for the good of all, there can be no greater blessing. I am not saying that you should give away all that you have worked so hard for or that you should feel guilt at your success. I am saying that what you do should in some way or another be for the good of others, as well as yourself.

We live in an age where we want everything and we want it now. Everything we have ever desired is at the tip of our fingers. There is no waiting, no anticipation. Everything is instant. Because of this we have lost the joy in what we have. Sure we have fleeting moments of excitement when something new arrives but it doesn’t last long and then we are looking for the next quick fix to feed our ego and stroke our materialistic desires.

One of the things I read over the weekend is something that touches me every time I read it. The words are so simple but so true. It is something we all forget, especially in the throw away society we have created for ourselves where even the most expensive trinket is but a disposable toy, easily replaced by the next big thing.

“Everything that’s really worthwhile in life came to us for free: our mind, our soul, our body, our hopes, our dreams, our ambitions, our intelligence, our love of family and children and friends. All these priceless possessions are free, but the things that cost us money are actually very cheap and can be replaced at any time.” – Earl Nightingale

These words never fail to touch my soul. How true they are. For we strive to achieve money, fame, success, material possessions beyond our wildest dreams; but these are but worthless idealism’s if we do not first appreciate what was given to us for free. For me the most priceless of them all is the love of my family. For without the giving and receiving of love we are but a shell, empty and worthless. Love is the starting point for all good thought. For when we start with love, our intention is love and our thoughts and actions reflect that, therefore what we get back, by universal law, can only be good.

Love and happiness

Five Day Feel Good Challenge! #5

Well here we are on our final day. How have you all found the challenge? I hope you have enjoyed it and are feeling good!

It’s surprising what we learn about ourselves when we start to really think about it and put pen to paper.

At the start of the week I asked you all to write down what you wanted to change about your lives. How these changes would make you feel and what your life would be like if these changes actually happened.

On day two I asked you to list what action you needed to take, how you were going to go about taking these actions and to set yourself a time limit for each action. I advised you to break your actions down into smaller, more achievable goals so as not to overwhelm yourself, but also because by taking smaller steps you reach your goals quicker and feel a sense of achievement which spurs you onto the next challenge in reaching your ultimate goal.

Day three was all about gratitude. Standing back and taking notice of the blessings already in your life. This makes you realise how blessed you already are and sends out a higher frequency to the universe, a frequency of gratitude and of having enough. The universe then responds by sending you more people and things to be grateful for! Gratitude is the No.1 factor in utilising the Law of attraction!

Day four was all about giving. My favourite part of the week so far! There is no nicer feeling than knowing you have helped make someone else’s day a little better in some small way or another. I was at the supermarket yesterday and there were no trolley’s. An older man saw me looking for a trolley and gave me his before getting himself another one. He didn’t have to do it, but he did. It was a small, random act of kindness that made my day just a little bit easier. What the man didn’t know was that I was really in a lot of pain and that small act of kindness meant I didn’t have to walk right to the other end of the car park to find a trolley. As it was I bumped into him again several times whilst doing my shopping and had some very pleasant conversation with him in the queue at the checkout. He was a lovely, cheery gentleman and he made my normally humdrum shopping experience all the more enjoyable. I left the supermarket with a renewed faith in humanity and continued my day doing as many random acts of kindness as I could!

Moral of the story……… random acts of kindness cost nothing but mean so much!

So, back to today. Today I want you to look back at all your worksheets from this week. The beginning of the week may have felt like a bit of a struggle, especially day two! But by today you should be filled with a renewed sense of joy having spent the last two days concentrating on your blessings and sharing with your fellow-man.

I want you to use that joy to raise your vibration and set your frequency to HIGH! Use the momentum to drive you forward with the plan you set out in day two. Start today to take those action steps towards your ultimate goal.

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today! – Benjamin Franklin

As those of you who read my blog regularly will know, one of my dreams is to write a book. So to make this dream a reality I broke down my action steps into smaller more achievable/believable goals. I took the advice of the ever inspiring Jack Canfield and decided to write a page a day. This is an achievable goal, it does not fill me with fear and dread that I am going to miss my deadline and fail at the first hurdle. I don’t feel overwhelmed by having to write a whole chapter in one sitting. It is something I know is possible and I can fit into my day no matter how busy I am. Nine times out of ten I write much more than one page and this just spurs me on because I feel that not only have I achieved what I set out to achieve that day but I also exceeded my target. Each day I can see my pages slowly developing into a book. My dream is slowly coming together one page at a time. All those feelings I wrote about on day one are starting to manifest. I have moments of inspiration every day. With each page I write I can feel myself moving closer and closer to where I want to be. My book is just one of the things on my ‘dream’ list but as I see this dream unfolding my faith in God and the universe increases and I feel that I can achieve anything.

Start your dream life today and see how much you can achieve. Dream big. Nothing is off-limits. We can all be, do and have anything we want in life but we must take responsibility, take action and have unconditional belief and faith, not only in the universe to deliver but in ourselves and our own abilities!

Good luck!

Love and happiness

I cannot believe he didn’t say thank you!Grrr….

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!

Image result for doing a good deed quote

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.

Image result for supermarket rage

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

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

Learning · The Law of Gender · The Law of Rhythm · The Twelve Laws of the Universe

The Twelve Laws of the Universe #6

download (1)

Welcome to the final part in this six part series on the Twelve Laws of the Universe. I hope it has been as enjoyable for you to read as it has been for me to write.

I have learnt a lot whilst working on this series and it has also made me realise where I have been falling short in my own journey with the Laws of the Universe.

There have been moments, along the way, where my faith has wavered, but, on the whole, I have overcome these hurdles and have learnt a great deal about myself, my journey, the Universal Laws and how we can all apply them to our own lives. Most importantly, for me, I have realised that this is truly what I want to do in life. I want to help others discover the power they have within them to become whatever they want to be. To have the life they have always dreamed of. I am not there yet, but I know I am on my way. I now fully understand the ebb and flow and how it is all a part of the journey.

Today we are looking at the Law of Rhythm and the Law of Gender.

The Law of Rhythm

Everything flows, out and in; everything has it’s tides;

all things rise and fall;

the pendulum swing manifests in everything;

the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left;

rhythm compensates – Kybalion

The Law of Rhythm teaches us that everything has a flow. If it goes up it must come down, it swings to the left, therefore, it must swing to the right. Ebb and flow, to and fro, in and out.

As we learnt with the Law of Polarity everything has an opposite. If it goes one way it must go the other way. We have high points in life and low points. We cannot have one without the other. The trick is to remember that when the chips are down things can only get better.

“When you are on a down swing, do not feel bad. Know the swing will change and things will get better. There are good times coming, think of them.” – Bob Proctor

There is an order to everything. Nothing is ever chaotic. The Law of Rhythm is always working. We see it in nature, in our seasons. One flows effortlessly into the other.

We see it in our economy. Before every low there is a high and after every high there is a low. It is the Law.

There is a rhythm to everything. We are born and we die. For every death there is a birth. The circle of life continues. Order prevails. The natural rhythm of life continues moving in an orderly fashion.

To apply this Law to our lives we must remember that for every low there must, by Law, follow a high. Do not look upon the low periods in your life as punishments or never ending holes of despair. See them for what they are, lessons preparing you for the high that is on it’s way. How can you truly appreciate the highs without the lows. Without one there cannot be the other. Everything happens for a reason, we must find the reason and learn from it in order to allow the pendulum to swing the other way. We must accept the low periods for what they are and move with the flow of the tide. If we chose not to accept them then we will forever be fighting against the tide and ultimately the tide always wins and we will be left defeated and exhausted.

The Law of Gender

The Law of Gender is as simply as it sounds. Every masculine has a feminine and visa versa. In the physical realm we are all manifest in either masculine or feminine form but ultimately we are all androgynous with both male and female qualities it is only our dominant quality that determines our gender on the physical plane.

Everything in nature has it’s masculine and feminine. This is how everything is created. We cannot have one without the other. Both parts are needed. We must accept this in order to progress and grow. No side is more important, stronger or dominant than the other. One cannot work without the other. To fully appreciate all there is in life one must accept this Law. We were all created equal. Opposite sides of the same coin.

“This is, in truth, the Creative Law. This Law decrees that everything in nature is both male and female. Both are required for life to exist.” – Bob Proctor

This Law tells us that all things need time to grow. Everything from a human child to a mighty oak takes time. We must nurture it and allow it the time to germinate, to sprout and to slowly transform into the wondrous creation it was meant to be. We cannot rush nature. To rush nature is to interrupt the process and in doing so we ultimately damage the end result.

Think of your dreams as tiny seeds that need to be planted, tended to, watered, loved and cared for. Each stage requires a different level of care. You cannot rush the process or the seedling will die before it has had chance to grow. Your dreams are the same. You must nurture them, love and care for them. Allowing them time to manifest. To reach your true potential you have to allow yourself time to grow.

I read a beautiful story on another blog (Sparklyjen.com) about a butterfly that I think fits this law perfectly.

 Thank you for joining me on this six week journey through the Laws of the Universe. I really hope they have helped inspire you in some way and that you have a better understanding of how the Universal Laws work. I think it is clear that they are all needed for us to manifest a life that fulfils our true potential.
