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


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.


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

(Image courtesy of

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


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.

The Twelve Laws of the Universe #3

download (1)

In this weeks post I am going to cover the Law of Correspondence and the Law of Cause and Effect. As with all the other laws you will see the repetition and similarities to the other laws I have already covered. There is a fine thread that runs through all twelve laws, linking them together intrinsically reinforcing the fact that to manifest your desires and master the Laws of the Universe you need to incorporate all twelve laws.

The fact they are all so similar makes it easy to blend them all together to fulfil a life of harmony, love, peace and unlimited abundance in every way.


The Law of Correspondence

“As above, so below”

“As within, so without”

“On Earth as it is in Heaven”.


This law states that whatever is happening in your life is a reflection or what is going on in your mind.

Your outer self is a direct reflection of your inner self. The conversations we have with ourselves create the realities we see on the outside. The same goes for the conversations we have with the universe or God. What we send out we receive back.

This should remind us again to be mindful of our thoughts for they create our reality. If you want to know what you are thinking just take a look at what’s around you. If you don’t like what you see change the way you correspond with yourself!

All our thoughts, feelings and beliefs manifest in our outer self.

All that we see in our universe is an outer expression and manifestation of the inner will of the infinite Mind.

This law highlights the fact that absolutely everything you have or experience within the physical world, i.e. relationships, friendships, material possessions, career success, finances etc, were all first created on the inside, in the MIND, and later manifested on the outside. Therefore, everything you experience in life is of your own making. This means that if you want a different reality in the physical plane first you must create it in the spiritual/mental plane.

Michael Jackson knew the answer…

The Law of Cause and Effect

Ralph Waldo Emerson said the Law of Cause and Effect is the “law of laws”.

“What goes around, comes around.”

“What you reap, you sow.”

download (2)

Some call it Karma. Some call it Fate. The point is that how you behave, how you speak to others, how you treat others will eventually come back and bite you on the arse!

If you are kind to people. If you treat people with love and respect then ultimately that is what you get back.

I hear you……

“Hang on, I’m kind to everyone but some people are just so rude!”

Let go…… that’s their issue. Just as you will be treated kindly by someone else, when you least expect it in return for your own kindness, they will be treated badly when they least expect it.

My mum always told me that “every action has a reaction”. Every cause has its own effect. Therefore, everything in our lives at this moment is a direct effect of a certain cause. Remember the equation from my post E+R=O Event+Response=Outcome. It’s the same principle. The Cause is the Event+Response, the Effect is the Outcome.

Can you see how these Laws are all linking together? The common thread is this:

  • Your thoughts create your reality
  • What you put out into the Universe is ultimately what you will get back
  • If you don’t like what’s going on on the outside world change what’s going on inside
  • Thoughts are powerful things
  • We can tell what we are thinking but what we are feeling and what we have created
  • We can change our reality at any time by changing the way we think and feel
  • Positive Mind creates positive life
  • Negative Mind creates negative life

So next time you say something, think something or do something think about the effect it will cause. Are you speaking from a place of love and respect? If not are you prepared to accept the consequences of your actions? How do you want to be treat/spoken to?

The Twelve Laws of the Universe #1

By now many of you are familiar with the law of attraction thanks to the film and book The Secret. Rhonda Byrne opened up a whole new world to all of us, and for that I all forever grateful.

How many of you, I wonder, are familiar with the other eleven laws of the universe and how they each play a part in manifesting the life you truly desire?

Over the next six weeks I will be exploring all twelve universal laws and explaining to you what they are and how to use them in your own lives.

As most of you already know this little blog is my account of my own journey of connecting with the universe and using its laws to achieve my dreams. I have, up until now, only really focused on the law of attraction. I haven’t been able to quite “crack it”, if you like, but then I realised I wasn’t using all the other laws in conjunction with the law of attraction. Although I was getting results I was frustrated because I wasn’t getting results all the time or the results I wanted. It’s like trying to wash up with only hot water and no soap or cleaning tools. It works but not as well as when you use all the tools available together.

For those of you who are new to my blog please check out some of my other posts. You will see that although I started this blog to diary my journey with the law of attraction I also talk about other stuff in my life. I feel it all contributes to what I have learnt along to way. This is my way of showing that’s it’s OK to not always get it right or be perfect. That even though you learn something new, applying it isn’t always easy, especially when you are still subconsciously clinging on to old habits, beliefs and paradigms. I also want to prove that the law of attraction does work. We can all have, be, achieve anything we want. All it takes is a little understanding and practice. Once the penny drops though and you see for yourself for the first time…..everything just falls into place and you will wonder why you didn’t start years ago.

As per usual, I digress. I do that a lot.

The Twelve Laws of the Universe

Today I am going to start with the one we’re all familiar with. The Law of Attraction. I’m also going to talk about the Law of Action because I feel these two, more than all the others, go hand in hand. So let’s go……

The Law of Attraction


The law of attraction simply put states ‘like attracts like’. ‘Thoughts become things’. Positive thoughts create positive energy, creating positive things and outcomes. Whereby, negative thoughts create negative energy leading to negative things and outcomes. Everything that is in your life today is there because you created it. You brought it into being by your thoughts and actions. So if you don’t like your current situation, change your thinking. It’s that simple.

If you want good things to happen to you then you have to send out ‘good vibes’. Raise your energy so the frequency you send out is positive and full of love. Treat others how you would like to be treated. Speak from the heart with love and respect. Give freely of yourself. The more you give the more you receive.


I don’t mean that you have to give away all you have so you are left with nothing and have no free time for yourself, but to give freely and with a good heart sends out the vibration that you have plenty and therefore more will be sent to you.


 Be mindful of your thoughts for they create your future.

The human mind has 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts per day. There is no way we can keep track of all those thoughts! The best way to do this is to focus on how you are feeling. Your feelings tell you what you are thinking. If you are feeling good then you know your thoughts are positive and the energy you are sending out is good. If, however, you are feeling low, depressed, angry or sad then you know the energy you are sending out is negative and bad. Therefore, you are creating a bad frequency and you need to change it so you don’t attract more ‘bad’ into your life. The good news is that positive energy/vibrations far outweigh negative ones so a quick change of thinking can wipe out any negative vibes you’ve sent out. A good way to do this is to take a step back from whatever you are doing and think about something that makes you happy. Your children, the smell of flowers in the springtime, your favourite song, anything that brings a smile to your face. I always have a list of a few in case one doesn’t quite cut the mustard then I can try another, or another, until I start to feel my energy lift and my mood change. I also like to play some music. Usually something cheesy and upbeat. I go and sit outside and connect with nature or I look at some photos of me and my family on a day out or on holiday. It doesn’t matter what it is that lifts your spirit as long as you can change that feeling from negative to positive you can change the energy you submit into the universe and change the outcome of what you get back.

It’s never too late to change the way you feel and think, thus changing your future from negative to positive.

The Law of Action


The Law of Action is as simple as it sounds. To manifest what you desire you must take inspired ACTION!

I feel this is of the most overlooked law out of the twelve. I also feel that this is the one that is most closely linked to the law of attraction for it doesn’t matter how much you think positively and focus on your desires they cannot manifest without action.


You must engage in actions that support your thoughts and dreams. Visualisation alone is simply not enough. This is where a lot of us, myself included, fall short when it comes to the law of attraction. We are taught that visualisation, affirmations, vision boards and positive thoughts and feelings manifest whatever we want. However, we are not told (well not as openly) that to manifest these dreams and desires we must first take action. This does not mean that the whole concept behind the law of attraction is a waste of time, because it’s not. It simply means that we must take some responsibility for manifesting what we dream about into reality. It’s a bit like going through the car wash. The car wash does all the hard work for you but you still have to drive up to the car wash before you get what you want. It’s the same with the law of attraction. Our thoughts, feelings, affirmations, visualizations etc all send out our ‘wants’ to the universe but we have to take the action steps required to get us on the right path. The universe will do its part by ensuring that it moves people and circumstances into alignment with what you desire to create opportunities for us to achieve our dreams.

“Anyone that has ever accomplished anything, did not know how they were going to do it. They only knew they were going to do it.” – Bob Proctor

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what actions to take to get whatever it is you want, just visualise yourself having it, keep your thoughts positive and the universe will send you signs and guidance to help you take action. Listen to your intuition. Watch out for signs. Often things will appear to be getting worse before you get what you want. This is just the universe giving you a little shove in the right direction, encouraging you to take that inspired action.

This blog is me taking my inspired action and following my intuition. I hope it helps you on your journey to wherever you may be headed.

Snot & Mascara!

Everything I seemed to have read recently has been about the proceeding struggle before something great happens to us. It is not that I have actively sort out these types of posts or images, they have just arrived at my feet like little soldiers, offering support when I felt like I was losing the battle. All neatly filed in line, one after the other. A constant reminder that the struggle is leading to something great. The lessons I am learning now are preparing me for what is to come. Each little soldier bringing with him his own first aid kit in the shape of a blog post or instagram feed. Gently pushing me forward, even though my heels are firmly planted in the dirt and my fingernails are clinging on for dear life to the tattered remains of what I am leaving behind. Too scared to tip toe forward, as I urged others to do in my post (One small step) not so long ago that I can have the luxury of claiming to have forgotten it.

The trouble with difficulty is that when we are faced with it and when we are going through tough periods in our lives we are often blinded by the circumstances with which we are faced and therefore cannot see where we are going. Sometimes the struggle is too hard and we cannot see a way out. We lose faith in the almighty that this is not forever. This is just preparing us for something better. These are the times when we need to stop and use our senses to envelope the struggle. Hold our faith. Accept that this will pass and from it we will learn a valuable lesson.

I have been finding life hard of late, both at work and personally. Up until today I was coping. I was taking it all in my stride. I was allowing the Universe to do it’s thing and trusting that whatever was going on was not going to last and that I was going to learn something profound from this whole experience. What that would be was not my concern, I just had to accept it and wait for it to pass. Like I said, that was up until today, when for no particular reason, it all became way too much! Oh God, my poor friend at work! I spoke to her on the phone about something very small when the floodgates opened and within minutes my nicely made up face became a picasso of snot and mascara! Not a good look for any woman. This is when all my senses and super powers (see my previous post on our six super powers) kicked in all at once and I was totally overwhelmed with emotion. The trouble was that I was using all these senses and superpowers in a negative way. Let me explain:


Sight – everything I looked at seemed an impossible task. The pile of papers on my desk appeared a mountain of unfinished work. My inbox glared at me like a challenging gladiator, daring me to open up another email demanding more work.

Sound – all the noise around me seemed magnified. The laughter I could hear felt like garish, horror movie clowns surrounding me and mocking my failure

Touch – everything I touched seemed to go wrong. The PC kept crashing, my favourite pen ran out. I caught my finger in the filing cabinet.

Taste – my tea suddenly tasted like the milk had gone off!

Smell – I even convinced myself that because I’d become such an emotional, blubbering wreck that somehow I developed a personal hygiene problem and now smelt like a sweaty camel! (don’t ask, coz I don’t know where that came from!)

Super Powers

Imagination – Oh boy! What fun games we like to play with ourselves when we are having a moment. Like all things imagination, we can get a bit carried away with it, especially when we are imagining the worst. I had convinced myself that due to my total inability to function like a normal employee and cope with the pressure I was the worst employee ever in all of crap employeeville!

Intuition – my intuition was telling me that something far worse that the snot and mascara monster was still to come and the gut feeling I was having was nothing to do with my own overactive imagination and totally out of control mind but because I was picking up on more bad stuff to come.

Memory – well that went out the window with Reason followed closely behind by Will!

Perception – the only superpower left and I think it’s clear what I done with that because it was my, quite clearly, hormonal, twisted, perception that started the whole snot and mascara episode off in the first place!

By the time my friend got to me I was makeup free (all but a few sogging eyelashes being glued together by remnants of mascara), sweaty (but not camel smelly) and exhausted.

I had followed none of my own advice. I had taken no heed from all the books I have read about self care. I did not step back from the situation, take deeps breaths, go and get some fresh air to clear my mind. I did not look at my surroundings and take in the positive. I did not harness my senses and super powers to lift my above the struggle and allow myself to view it from a higher plane of clarity. No. I just imploded into a hysterical, middle aged, very likely menopausal, hormonal mess.


Lucky for me all my harping on about positivity and the Law of Attraction has obviously rubbed ofi on my friend at work. She dragged me away from my office and tramped my round one of our other sheltered housing schemes to visit some tenants. At the time I thought she was bonkers and I protested like a petulant child being dragged to the shops with their mother.


But you know what? It was the best thing ever. I got to catch up with one of my tenants that I’d been trying to reach earlier in the day. I also met up with another tenant that I needed to see to collect some paperwork and had scheduled a visit for later in the week, thus freeing up my time later this week. I also got to meet the resident woodpecker who was proudly tapping away in the tree in the garden and whilst waiting for my lovely friend to finish what she had to do I got to sit on the bench in the communal garden, with the sun on my face and watch as the blue tits and robins flitted about the bushes and trees.


And so inner peace was restored

It wasn’t until I got home that I realised. All the troubles of late are leading me to something better. Although I cannot see it at this time that is what is happening. I must remember to embrace the struggle, find joy in the hardship and seek out the lesson even if it means entering the darkness and facing the monsters.

Maybe that is the lesson I am being shown. Maybe there is another. Maybe the soldiers were there to encourage me to take the first step forward into the darkness. Maybe I was being shown the power of the senses and super powers and how they can be good and bad when not kept in check.

I don’t know. Clearly my lesson is not over. Whatever, my journey is moving forward and I must follow the yellow brick road, like Dorothy, facing whatever challenges come my way. Greeting new friends, foes, fears and triumphs before I get to the Emerald City and all the marvelous wonders this infinite Universe has to offer.

Six Super Powers of the Mind

So it seems that if I am to become a successful writer first I must become famous, rich, hugely successful, a public speaker and a social media piranha! According to an article I read recently my chances of ever getting my book published, let alone making any money out of it, are slim to none!

Well that made for motivational reading (not!)

Suffice to say, I am not taking any notice of what I have read. As my mother always says “You shouldn’t believe everything you read” and for once I am taking her advice.

The whole principle of this blog is to prove that anyone can achieve whatever they desire. Be is success, a happy fulfilling relationship, a healthy body, ideal weight, wealth, whatever you can imagine in you mind you can hold in your hand.

Our six untapped super powers are:







Mary Morissey is an expert in this field. She explains how we can unlock these super powers to create everything we dream of.

You will all recognise these six little words. You probably think you are using them already. But are you? Are you really using them as they are meant to be used?

I have said it before and I will say it again:


Everything ever create was first IMAGINED!

INTUITION: Do you listen to your intuition? Those gut feeling you get. Do you act upon your intuition? I bet the answer is no more often than not? How often do your ignore those ‘gut feelings’? STOP! Start to take notice of your intuition. Listen to what the Universe is trying to tell you. Trust your gut!

WILL: Will it to happen. Have total belief that it will happen. This is not the same as will power. Will power is inconsistent and forceful, will is calm and confident. When you use your will, you create such a frequency of belief that whatever it is you want has no choice but to manifest.

MEMORYImage result for alice in wonderland 6 impossible things before breakfast quote

Memory is not just about what has happened in our past. We can create our future memories. Whatever it is you want, create it as a memory in your mind. Visualise it so much that it is cemented into your subconscious as an actual memory. Focus on past memories but only the good to raise your vibration. Don’t dwell on negative memories as they only serve to lower your vibration and reduce your creative power.

If you believe 6 impossible things before breakfast like Alice imagine how extraordinary your life would become.!

REASON: Most people seek to use logic to navigate situations, make decisions and “get ahead” in life… but logic is based on evaluating current circumstances and can only produce more of the same results. Reason, on the other hand, is based on your infinite potential – Mary Morissey

PERCEPTION: Whether you realise it or not, you are actively using your faculty of Perception in every moment of every day.

Most people perceive without awareness, and therefore experience life as a series of uphill battles. But by shifting your Perception, you will have the power to turn even the most overwhelming challenges into insignificant road bumps on the path toward living a life you love.

Once you master your Perception, you become unstoppable in life! – Mary Morissey

Law of attraction · Manifesting · The power of thought · Vision board

Using my blog as a mini vision board!


Right, so I’m cheating a bit, sort of! I love this house! Sure there are things I would change about it. I don’t know what it’s like inside but I know what I want it to be like inside. What it will be like when I live there!

I read a post recently by Wendy at Brilliance Within about vision boards and how important they are in aiding your manifesting. I created a vision board a few years ago and I have to admit at first I referred to it all the time and I did manifest some if the things on there, including a trip to Rome for my 40th birthday. However, after a while I forgot about it. I put it away in a draw and to this day that is where it stayed.

So Wendy inspired me to create a vision board again and to do it properly. I’ve started to collect a few pictures already and plan to spend my evening tomorrow making my beautiful vision board. After watching one of Jack Canfield’s videos on Wendy’s blog I’ve also decided to  create a focus vision board for my work and blog.

This is why I decided to put MY house out there for you all to see. I’m hoping it will add speed to the manifestation process and increase my vibration. Belief is the key to manifesting what we want and I really do believe this house is mine!


As you can see the back of the house, i.e. garden, needs some work but that’s all part of the fun. There’s also a an annex further down the garden (which my oldest daughter has already mentally moved in to) and the house backs onto protected woodland. My dog, Archie is going to love going for long walks amongst the bluebells! I have plans for a pool house with sauna, hot tub and mini gym!


As you go in the front door you are greeted by the beautiful, light, airy entrance hall. In the centre the stairs lead up to the four bedrooms and two bathrooms. To my left is the kitchen with utility room which leads out into the garden. I’ve had doggy shower fitted in the utility for when we get back from those longs walks, Archie loves a puddle! The kitchen links effortlessly into a cosy seating area with comfy sofa’s and a TV so the kids can sit and watch their favourite programs while I cook dinner. This area also has double doors that open out onto the garden. Back into the hall and to my left is the sitting room with big, bright windows, double doors leading out to the garden, an open fire and comfy sofas for relaxing and snuggling. My of office is further down the hall and is one of my favourite rooms. I have a window seat that looks out into the garden and surrounding woodland. I’m surrounded by . The office is light and bright, ideal for writing and working.

If I close my eyes I can smell the cottage flowers in the front garden. I can hear the sound of the gravel as my car pulls up on the drive. I feel happy, contented, at home!

Hopefully by sharing this with you I am a step closer to my dream home. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s mine and I can’t wait to move in!!

Love and happiness

Behind the mask

How often do we show who we really are to the world?

Why is this?

Often I hide behind the person I have created for the world to see. Only a few know who I really am. It’s not that I am trying to deceive or trick people. I am not trying to be something I’m not to gain friends or increase my social status. I am not trying to con the world around me for personal gain. I hide because I am afraid. I am afraid that I will not be accepted for who I am. That I am not good enough. Not pretty enough. Not thin enough. Not rich enough. Not clever enough. The list goes on and on.

I am not one to look at myself in the mirror and think “Yeah, I look good today.” I don’t see what is good about me. I don’t see the good in my personality. I don’t find me funny or interesting. Very few of my friends know about my blog because I am too embarrassed to let them read my musings. What if they laugh? What if they think I am talking total crap? When I look in the mirror I see first the things that I don’t like. The faults. The imperfections. I avoid social situations through fear of not being good enough. I don’t talk often about the things I find interesting in case the people around me think I’m boring or strange.

I have, in recent years, tried only to surround myself with those I love and trust. Those who know me. My Law of Attraction learning journey has taught me to love the imperfections of me. Still I struggle. This is what holds me back in my manifesting. The FEAR!

Oh to let go and have total faith in the Universe and it’s plan for me.

Oh to love myself as I love others. To feel confident to show everyone who I am. To feel confident that what I say matters. It has an impact.

At work I am considered confident, assertive, knowledgeable. Others come to me for advice and guidance. I am considered good at my job. Colleagues, managers, clients, they all have nothing but positive feedback for me. Why then, can’t I see what they see? Why do I feel inadequate. What demon festers in my sub-conscious mind that will not allow me to love myself?

I am told I am pretty. I am told I have a nice figure. I get compliments. To me they sound like lies and I question their intention. I wonder what sick joke is being played that someone would say something like that to me. Are they waiting for me to fall for their flattery so they can laugh at my stupidity for believing I might be worthy of such compliments.

Fucked up? Yes! Most definitely. How twisted does a mind need to be to have so little faith in one’s self.

This is my block. This is what holds back my dreams. I send out my desires to the Universe. I have faith they will come. I believe with all my heart I can have anything I want. Be anything I want. I do, however, know that until I release my negative thoughts and learn to love myself and accept that ‘body’ is just our physical presence in this Universe and ‘spirit’ is all consuming, all encompassing, I will not move forward on my journey. This is my current lesson.

Lessons do not end until we learn what they have been sent to teach us. This has been the hardest part of my journey so far. It is easy to manifest the small things. The parking spaces, the empty checkout at the supermarket, but to really create the life we desire, become who we were born to be we must first love ourselves. I have said it before and I will continue to say it. How can we give unconditional love to all who we meet if, at first, we cannot love ourselves?
