Manifesting challenge!

Hi everyone. I hope I find you all well. I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while but like the Virgo I am I have been procrastinating due to lack of self belief. I don’t know why I do it to myself as it goes against everything I teach others. I guess that’s another of my limiting traits, I can easily see the best in others and help them work on their weaknesses to turn them into strengths but when it comes to myself I throw all that I have learnt out of the window and revert back to limiting beliefs! 

So because of my inability to take my own advice I thought we could do a little manifesting challenge together. I’ve done this before with people I work with and it has always given them the lift they needed to move forward and try to manifest bigger and better changes in their lives. Sometimes we just need a little ‘proof’ to reignite our faith.

So, let’s go!

STEP 1: Think of something that you want to manifest. Something small like a lucky penny or a four leaf clover, maybe a white feather or a Robin, something that resembles luck or spiritual guidance. Close your eyes and visualise your item. Imagine what it looks like, what it feels like or sounds like. Imagine how you will feel when you see it. Just spend a few minutes focusing on whatever it is you have chosen.

STEP 2: Let it go. Send it out into the Universe and trust that it will come back to you. Know that it is already manifested and just waiting for you to cross its path. Release any thoughts of doubt, just let go………..

STEP 3: Go about your business as usual. Forget all about the challenge. Let the Universe do it’s work.

STEP 4: Use the comments section below or the email address in my contact section to let me know when you cross paths with what it is you visualised. Let me know how it made you feel knowing that you manifested that into your life. What’s next for you? Has this little challenge restored your faith in the Law of Attraction?

Happy manifesting everyone. Have faith, believe, receive, achieve!

PS. Just for the record, I have chosen a Robin. We don’t see many this time of year and to me they represent our loved ones that have crossed over. They represent a message of hope and love, and sometimes, that’s all you need to restore your faith.

Hello again everyone. I hope I find you all well?

I hope you have all had a chance to read the other four posts in this series, if not you can catch up on them using the links at the end of this post. I have had some really positive emails and comments about this series so far and look forward to hearing more from you all.

In today’s post I will be looking at the Law of Relativity and the Law of Polarity. Some of you may already be familiar with these Laws but for those of you who are not let us explore further.

The Law of Relativity

Image result for the law of relativity

The Law of Relativity teaches us to compare our problems to the problems of others. What may appear like a catastrophic event to us, when compared to the problem of another, suddenly pails into insignificance. Things begin to be put into perspective. As my mum always said:

“There is always someone worse off.”

Now I know that sounds harsh, looking for someone who is worse off than you to make yourself feel better, but that is not the meaning of this Law. The point is that no matter how bad a situation seems to you, there will always be someone in a worse situation, thus making your problem seem not so bad after all.

For example; we look at our busy lives and complain that we have little time to socialise or relax, yet when compared to someone in one of the third world countries, for example, you begin to realise how lucky we are in our western society. Everything is relative. In our modern world we have become so obsessed with technology and material possessions, we have lost site of the simple things in life and forgotten how blessed we are to have running water, food in our bellies and a roof over our head. We are not in war torn cities, fearing for our lives, not knowing where our next meal is coming from. Our main concern is that we might lose internet connection for a few minutes!!!

Everything only exists because it is made real by it’s comparison to something else:

  • Light vs dark
  • Hot vs cold
  • Good vs evil
  • Big vs small

It is all relative. It is all about how we relate it to something else.

You may think you don’t have enough money until you compare yourself to someone else. To them you may appear rich as they have far less than you. The Law of Relativity says we should stop comparing ourselves to those who have far more than us because this only serves to make us have feelings of lack. These feelings of lack are sent out into the Universe as vibrations of what we want more of so we will be sent more things to make us feel we don’t have enough (bills, debt etc.)

By comparing ourselves to those less fortunate than us we begin to appreciate how lucky we really are and how blessed our lives are. We begin to be grateful for what we do have, therefore sending out feelings of abundance and gratitude. Our vibrations become positive and the Universe will send us more things to be grateful for, more abundance!

This Law reminds us that what we believe we have is all relative in comparison to someone or something else. We can use it to our advantage or to our disadvantage, depending on our outlook.

There will always be someone who has more than you, someone who can run faster than you, is smarter than you. But in comparison there will always be someone who has less than you, runs slower than you or is not as smart as you. Look at what you have and be thankful. Be positive about your situation. Look for the good in everything.

It’s all about how you look at the world around you!

If you are grateful for what you have now you will always have enough because the Universe will ensure you always have things to be grateful for.

Check out my Friday Share from 05/05/2017 for a little reminder.

The Law of Polarity

Nothing is one sided. There are two sides, or poles, to everything. Everything has an opposite. The difference in between the two extremes is called polarity.

Everything has an opposite.

The Law of Polarity states that opposites are just different manifestations of the same thing.

Sir Isaac Newton said that:

“every action has and equal, and opposite, reaction”

The purpose of the Universe is equilibrium and synchronicity. It is said that love and hate are actually the same emotion. For how can you hate someone you have never truly loved. Only someone you love can stir such emotion in you to cause you to hate them because only the actions of someone you love could hurt you so deeply that the love could turn to hate.

The Law of Polarity enables us to experience life at it’s fullest. Without experiencing one thing how can we appreciate another?

How can you appreciate heat if you have never experienced cold?

How can you appreciate abundance if you have never experienced struggle?

  • Love vs hate
  • Hot vs cold
  • Good vs bad
  • Big vs small
  • Failure vs success

All things work together. Without one you cannot have the other. Therefore, all things, good and bad, success and failure, abundance and austerity must work for the higher good.

All is Love

Sometimes you have to experience adversity to appreciate prosperity, sadness to appreciate joy. The Law is there to teach us. To help us learn and discover.

In every failure we find success

Image result for inventor of lightbulb 10000 fail quote

If Thomas Edison had not failed he would never have invented the light bulb and we’d all be sitting in the dark! If it had not been dark he would never have tried in the first place!

Every situation is only ‘good’or ‘bad’ by how we perceive it. Something you consider to be bad another may think is good. Take a step back, look again, is it as bad as you first thought? Is there a lesson to be learnt?

Every one of us is sent a series of lessons. We must learn from these lessons before we can move forward. If we do not learn then the lesson will keep manifesting in different ways until we learn what is has been sent to teach us.

Look for the positive in EVERY situation!

By looking for the good in all situations we will learn our lessons quicker and progress faster.

The same is true for people. Always look for the good in everyone. Positive thoughts create positive energy and send out good vibrations to the Universe and as we know the Universe then sends back more things to be positive about!

You can see that, as with the other Laws we have looked at, there are strong similarities in these two Laws. The general thread through all the Laws is the same. It is about working with all the Laws to achieve our dreams. At first this sounds daunting but as you learn more about each Law you realise that they are all interconnected and work seamlessly together.Please check out the other posts in this series below:

I hope you have all the enjoyed the series so far? If you haven’t had a chance to read the previous three posts yet you can use the links below to catch up. Please feel free to comment as your feedback is always welcomed and much appreciated. My intention with this series is to introduce you to all twelve laws of the universe (if you are not already familiar with them) and show you how they are all as equally important as the Law of Attraction when manifesting our dreams.

In this weeks post I am going to look at the Law of Compensation and the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy (I know, it’s a bit of a mouthful but really not as scary as it sounds!)

The Law of Compensation

77emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson said:

“Each person is compensated in a like manner for that which they have contributed.”

The Law of compensation is also known as the Law of Reaping and Sowing. Simply put, you get back what you put in.

If you are a happy person who always smiles and tries to do good for others around you, you will ultimately attract other people who are happy and good natured. The more you are happy and do good for others the more of the same you will attract. You will attract things into your life that are positive. On the flip side, if you are someone who is grumpy and constantly moaning you attract people who are also grumpy and moaning or you will ‘inflict’ you grumpiness onto others until they become grumpy and moany. Soon you will be surrounded by lots of grumpy, moany people who generate things to moan about!

The way you behave impacts on what you attract, or are compensated with. Therefore, say, think, act, how you want others to speak to you, think about you, act towards you. Give out what you want back. Approach everything from a place of positivity and love so that what you are sending out can only come back to you in such a manner.

Below are some ways you can to use the Law of Compensation:

  • Give what you have: Now I don’t mean leave yourself with nothing to give to another. I also don’t mean this merely in monetary terms. But always try to give to others and not squander everything for yourself. Be generous within your means.
  • Be what you want to see come back to you: If you want people to treat you with kindness and respect them make sure that is how you treat others.
  • Be charitable/volunteer: This is a great way of giving of yourself to help others.
  • Be productive: Don’t sit around waiting for someone else to do it for you, get up off your butt and get it done! You will never get anything back if you are not prepared to put something in!

“Give to every man more than you can take from him” 

Wallace D Wattles – The Science of Getting Rich

This quote from one of my favourite books, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles, is a clear indications of the Law of Compensation. Wallace D Wattles is not saying that you must always give in terms of money but ensure that whatever you take from someone you give more in return in terms of use value.

A great example of this is given in chapter six of his book when he describes selling a piece of artwork to an Eskimo in exchange for furs. He states that he has wronged him for the Eskimo has no use for fine art, but, he says, if he instead gives him a gun in exchange for the furs then the Eskimo has use for that and so he has given more in terms of ‘use value’. Think about it.

The Law of Compensation is not just about monetary rewards, it is about any blessing we receive in return for out actions, words, thoughts or feelings. Look out for the blessings that are bestowed upon you and be grateful for them. Look at what is around you. Your family, friends, loved ones, your relationships, your home, material possessions and so forth. See how abundant you truly are. It’s amazing how blessed we all are when we really look around us. If you don’t like what you see then you need to look inside yourself and see what you have put out, what have you sown?

You don’t get something for nothing!

If you want to increase what you get back try these tips below:

  • Think abundantly
  • Be grateful, show gratitude
  • Give your all. Always do the best you can in whatever you do.
  • Take action with a good heart. Do not give just to receive for that sends out low vibrations and negative energy and you will receive the same back. If you cannot give with a good heart then don’t bother!
  • Pay you bills without fear. Do not fear spending money as this sends the Universe messages of lack and that is what will come back to you.

Understand that every gain has a loss and every loss has a gain. We must be contented and grateful and not live in envy. The rich man may appear to have everything but what has he given up to achieve what he has? How many super, successful pop stars do we see that ‘appear’ to have it all then we see them sat on some chat show sofa talking about their lack of privacy and how their whole life is laid bare for criticism or their inability to have a meaningful relationships because they do not know who they can trust. I am not saying that we must not strive to achieve or manifest our dreams. It is good to want more than we have. We must, however, be grateful for what we have and understand that in receiving we must also give something up.

Your whole life is centred around the spirit of giving.

In short, what you put out into the Universe you get back.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

Image result for the law of perpetual transmutation of energy

All of us has the ability to change our lives by changing our energy or vibration. In my previous post 9 Ways to raise your vibration I give you some tips on how to do this. Thankfully positive energy is far stronger than negative energy and has the power to transform any negative vibes you have been sending out. Therefore, transmuting the negative energy.

Energy is constantly moving. Wallace D Wattles says that it moves in and out of form. He also says that as we exhaust one form it makes room for another.

“Nature is an inexhaustible storehouse of riches; the supply will never run short.” Wallace D Wattles – The Science of Getting Rich

We already know that our thoughts are energy. Therefore our thoughts will eventually appear as physical things.

thoughts-become-things-if-you-see-it-in-your-mind-you-will-hold-it-in-your-hand

This is why it is so important to keep your thoughts positive. Focus on the things you want to manifest for they can only, by Universal Law, become real in the physical world.

Image result for thought become things

The Universe does not judge your thoughts. If you are constantly having negative thoughts and thinking about the things you don’t want the Universe does not know that you don’t want these things and will begin to manifest what you are thinking about and feeling. You will receive more of what you don’t want!

But, like I said earlier, positive thoughts and feelings, positive energy, are far stronger than negative so if you start to notice negative situations, circumstances and things manifesting in your live change the way you think and feel. Change your energy from negative to positive. Lift your vibration.

Here are some tips to help you with this Law:

  • Make what you want your most dominant thought. This is what this Law responds to most
  • Keep your energy positive and your vibration high
  • Use positive affirmations
  • Visualise what you want to manifest
  • Create a vision board (I will be doing a post on this soon so)
  • Practice gratitude
  • Be mindful of your thoughts and feelings

IMG_20170428_233617_193

This Law tells us that energy is constantly moving into physical form and that physical form is the manifestation of the non-physical (thought).

Our thoughts create feelings that build ideas, these ideas lead us into action, actions manifest our ideas into physical being.

Can you see how all the Laws intertwine and must be used together for us to manifest our dreams. If you don’t like the life you have you must change it. Only you can do that. To do that you must first start with MIND.

Gratitude · Law of attraction · Manifesting · Positive

Get your gratitude on!

Image result for thank you

One of the main threads throughout the Laws of the Universe is GRATITUDE. It cannot be stressed enough that the more grateful you are the more things the Universe will send you to be grateful for.

One way to do this is by starting a gratitude book. A gratitude book is something you write in every day to log all the things you are grateful for that day, a bit like a journal. Now, you can go online and buy gratitude books, Rhonda Byrne has a lovely “Secret Gratitude Book” which is the official, authorised companion to the original book (this is not an affiliate link). It is filled with inspiring quotes and affirmations to help you on your journey. There are also some other great gratitude books available online with similar themes and they are all very lovely. However, a gratitude book is for you to write in each day the things you are grateful for and any notebook will do just as good a job. It’s not about spending lots of money on a fancy journal, but, if that is what makes you happy, go for it! There are some lovely notebooks out there, I personally like the selection in The Works. They have some beautiful notebooks, my favourite at the moment is the Alice in Wonderland one and it’s only £2! Mind you, if you’re anything like me, you will already have at least one unused notebook lying around indoors (I do tend to collect these a bit!)

Daily Gratitude’s

Image result for thank you

Once you’ve got your book all you have to do is dedicate five to ten minutes each evening, preferable before going to bed, to write down all the things in your day that you are grateful for. I always start with the date at the top. I head it ‘daily gratitude’s’, then I list everything I am grateful for that day. It can be something as small as your morning coffee or a display of spring flowers on your commute to work, you may have received a ‘random act of kindness’ from a stranger, write down anything and everything. As you start to think about your day and write down all the good that has happened to you, you start to realise how blessed you really are. Your mood will shift and you will be sending out all that positive energy into the Universe with the clear message that you want more things to be grateful for!

There is always SOMETHING to be grateful for!

There is always, and I mean always, something to be grateful for. Even on our worse days when we get up late, we miss our train or bus, our bosses are horrible to us, our children turn into monsters from another planet and it pours down with rain on our lunch break when it’s been brilliant sunshine the rest of the day while we’ve been locked away in the office, even on those days there is something to be grateful for. You might just have to look a bit harder for it.

Start simple:

  • Thank you for the gift of life
  • Thank you for the rain that waters the flowers in my garden
  • Thank you for my job that enables me to pay my bills
  • Thank you for my healthy body
  • Thank you for my beautiful children
  • Thank you for my dog who wants nothing from me, he just wants to love me and be loved.

You get the idea. Even on the worse day there is something to be grateful for. Remember there is always someone worse off than you who would look upon your day as the best day ever. Become that person ans see the blessings that are all around you. You’ll be surprised how much there is to be grateful for.

Gratitude Intentions

Image result for i am grateful for what is on its way

When I set out to write my daily gratitude’s I also, on the opposite page, write a list of gratitude intentions. Gratitude intentions are things you want to happen, things you want in your life, but you write about them as if they are already there. The Law of Attraction teaches us that in order to manifest our dreams we must first think and act as though we have already received what it is we desire. We must act and feel grateful. Writing you gratitude intentions down next to your daily gratitude’s is a great way of doing this. It reminds you of the things you desire and helps keep them at the forefront of your mind at all times. This enables you to keep sending those signals out to the Universe about what you want to come back to you. Sending out your vibrations from a place of love and gratitude only increases the power of your vibration.

I also like to mark off when I have achieved something that is on my gratitude intention list. When I have reached my goal or received my ‘wish’ I mark it off with the date I received it.

It’s great to look back through your gratitude book and see what you have managed to manifest. Each time you mark something off your belief and faith becomes stronger and so your ability to manifest gets stronger because you are sending out more and more gratitude and positive energy.

My first ever gratitude book was given to me by a dear friend. It’s just a notebook but on the front are pictures of my daughters and the caption:

Daughter are the Wonder Women of our future!

For those of you who don’t know me, I am a closet Wonder Woman fan. Well, maybe not so closet to be fair lol. I have always wanted to be Wonder Woman since I was a little girl and my friend knows this sad fact about me. The notebook was the most heartwarming gift I have ever received and for a long time I didn’t want to write in it. There is also a beautiful verse on the inside cover. I realised that this was the perfect book for my daily gratitude’s and gratitude intentions. I also know that I will never throw it away as it is a reminder, not only of my gratitude lists, but also of my lovely friend, for whom I shall be forever grateful.

9 Ways to raise your vibration

I said in one of my previous posts, The Twelve Laws of the Universe #2 , that I would write a post about raising your vibration or energy. I’ve looked into this a lot during my journey and these are some of the best ones I’ve found that work for me.

GET INTO NATURE 

Image result for nature plants and flowers

There’s nothing like a bit of fresh air to blow off the cobwebs of negative energy and raise your vibration. Also scientists have proved that getting outdoors and being at one with nature can seriously improve you mood and general well being. 

So with the 3 day weekend ahead of you it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and experience the best that Mother Nature has to offer. Feel the energy from the trees and plants around you, connect with it. Feel the sun on you face. Even if it’s a bit chilly, wrap up warm and let the energy flow into you and raise you vibration.

Now, I’m not telling you you have to go hug a tree or anything but if that’s what floats your boat and it gets those vibrations rising and your energy back on track then so be it!

PUT ON SOME MUSIC

Image result for MUSIC

Music is the spice of life! It doesn’t matter what genre of music you’re into it is guaranteed to give you a boost. Whether you choose something chilled, soothing and relaxing that you can lay back to and let the soft tones envelope you, slowly lifting your vibration or you chose something upbeat and funky that you can dance around the room to giving you an instant boost, either choice is definitely going to lift you energy and vibration! You could also grab a hairbrush and get your inner Beyonce on in the shower!

HAVE A LAUGH!

Image result for LAUGHTER

Laughter is a great way to raise your vibration. I like to get together with friends and catch up on all the weird and wonderful things that have happened to them throughout their week. It’s amazing the stories people tell you about what goes on in their work places or home lives. Sometimes, things that seemed so serious at the time when talked about among friends suddenly become hysterically funny. Looking back on something in retrospect can really highlight if you have over reacted to something. Me and my friends often laugh at ourselves and our ‘Mum rages’. You know the ones when the kids are driving you nuts and suddenly the red mist descends and the wild woman of Borneo is unleashed! Usually it’s during the morning rush when time is short and the kids decided they are going in slow motion. You see the clock ticking and old father time running away from you, you slip into ‘what if’ mode…..’what if I miss my train’, ‘what if the kids are late for school’, ‘what if I’m late for work’. Once you’ve drop the kids off on time, caught your train and made it to work on time (as always) and you look back at the mornings events you slowly start to see the funny side. The funny side that your kids saw all along which is why they were sniggering in the back of the car when they thought you weren’t looking!

Another way to get your chuckle on is to watch a funny movie. Not only does the easy comedy lift your spirits but the sheer action of just kicking back on the sofa with a movie starts to lift your energy and raise your vibration.

Some other benefits of laughter:

SHOW SOME GRATITUDE

Look around you and find something to be grateful for. No matter what your circumstances there is ALWAYS, ALWAYS something to be grateful for! 

As you start to look around and ‘count your blessings’ you will automatically start to raise your vibration. Gratitude is one of the fastest ways to let the universe know you are sending out ‘good vibes’. The more you are grateful the more things you will find to be grateful for. and the more your vibration will skyrocket!

SMILE

My mum always told me that it takes less muscles to smile than it does to from. This means smiling = less wrinkles!

ENERGY RAISED RIGHT THERE!!!

Also it has a positive effect on your mood and lowers stress levels resulting in higher energy and vibration.

Image result for smile

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

Showing a complete stranger is a great way to raise your vibration. Not only does it make them feel good, it makes you feel good and sends out a positive message to the Universe.

I try to do as many acts of random kindness a day as I can. It doesn’t have to be a big, elaborate gesture, it can be a simple smile as you pass someone by or letting someone go at a junction. You never know what this will do to their day (you never know they might just be a mum in banshee mode on the school run LOL!)

Today for example I help a lady in the supermarket who was struggling on her own with her shopping. He items were dropping on the floor and she clearly did not have enough hands. I couldn’t do much as I currently have a slipped disc in my back but I did what I could and helped her on her way. As I got in my car I felt my energy rise.

AND BREATHE

Focusing on your breath instantly relaxes you. It also re-energises the body, raises your energy and helps reconnect you to the Universe.

SPACE CLEARING

As I said in one of my earlier posts  space clearing is a great way to not only raise the energy and vibration of your home but also to raise your personal vibration. For more tips on how to cleanse the space around you and raise your vibration check out my post Cleanse you space, raise your vibration

MEDITATE

Meditation is a great way to relax you body and mind and recharge your energy. My friend and I used to practice meditation at work when we were feeling the strain.  Try the link below for a great mini meditation that relaxes you and gives your energy a much needed boost.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNvHxNUM7rk

Meditation is proven to lower stress, help with depression, increase productivity, improve memory, boost creativity, improve sleep, lower blood pressure, boost your immune system, the list goes on and on.

I hope this has given you some ideas to raise your own vibration and energy.

Love and happiness
