A MIX OF HEART FELT OBSERVATIONS AND SCIENCE!
Valentine’s Love To You

Valentine’s Love To You

☯ Valentine’s Love To You
So here we are, its Feb 14th 2017 and Inboxes are overflowing, postmen are being crippled under the weight of post sacks and florists are doing a roaring trade!
Its Valentine’s Day and we are being bombarded with, dare i say, over commercialised crap and overtly sickly images of chocolates and puppies. Don’t get me wrong I love chocolate and my dogs are a large part of my life- I love them madly and deeply.
BUT…
I love giving love. I love receiving love – but don’t feel the need to confine it to one day of massive commercialism!
As you know, I love to focus on what I do want and not waste energy on the negatives, so today I would love to share this with you.
If you are in a relationship – truly, madly and deeply love your partner. This isn’t about roses and fluffy slippers one one day of the year, this is about…
You giving to your loved ones what THEY need.
 
What makes them come totally alive?
What makes them roar with laughter?
What makes them feel needed and totally appreciated?
I would love you to just stop for a moment, put your hand on your heart and breathe. Breathe into your heart for one minute. Connect with the all knowing part of you. That part has your answers.
Do this exercise for just one minute. Focus on breathing and feeling the warmth of your hand on your heart. Imagine the breathe flowing through you and nurturing your heart and soul. Now coming from this place of connection, ask yourself what would your partner love you to do to delight them? 
Think outside the box.
Be Playful!
Take action and plan it, now, today and have huge fun with this.
Remember this is not about what you want to give them-
this is all about what they would love to receive.
For us singletons-
I love Valentines day, because it reminds me with gratitude that I am really rather amazing already and on my own and that I know absolutely, that my ideal partner is coming to me. So lets do the same beautiful breathing exercise above and ask ourselves-
What would make today really special?
What would make me laugh, feel total love for myself happy and contented?
An extra treat snuggle on the sofa with our beloved dog, a special supper and fine wine for one, call a friend we have been meaning to for ages, speak to relatives, call another person who might be feeling a little low?
The list is as endless and beautiful as your imagination!
Extra brownie points are always scored for making others feel a little better!
Why not challenge yourself to pay 5 compliments to day- make people smile. As always, make the world around you a better place.Leave everyone around you feeling better for knowing you.
If we all could do that what a wonderful world this would be.
Sending heart felt love to you all

Size Matters- Dream Big!

Size Matters- Dream Big!

 

Dreams are the beginning of everything we create own our life. I was brought up to believe that dreaming wasn’t a particularly productive pastime?

Were you?

Are you day dreaming again Marianne?
I probably was!

 

Sadly  it gets drummed out of us as we “grow up’!
It did with me, until recently with all the studying I am doing, I now know, that it is the starting point for all that we create.

 

What do you really want to experience in your life?

Let your imagination soar, breathe some lovely deep breaths, close your eyes, put  a smile on your face and just dream…
Dream so big that the excitement floods you with energy, with desire.
Dream in such precise detail that you can see it, feel it and feel the emotions attached to it.

 

A dream home by the beach maybe?  Hear the sea gently breaking on the shore, feel the sand scrunching between your toes, feel the warmth of the evening sun on your skin, you walk inside and there is your gorgeous partner pouring you a drink and cooking the supper, he is wearing that funny little apron you gave him at Christmas…that is what I mean by really feeling the emotion of the image.

 

The only limit on your imagination my friend is YOU!

 

Please don’t make your dreams based on your reality today, on what people around you think and expect and what is in your bank account. That isn’t a real dream. It is one that keeps you in your comfort zone and stops you moving forwards in a great way. It is the “dreaming” that 95% of the population does and it takes you nowhere really.  Don’t let fears drag you down- dream big. Don’t let the part of your life that has already been dictate your future. It is up to you to decide how your future will be.  The size of your dream is related to the passion of your desire in achieving it.

 

How would it make you feel?

 

So don’t dream from a place of lack, dream from a place where your higher soul is soaring. Where you are in alignment with Source/God.  A place of abundance and where everything is possible.
I get excited just thinking about this place.
Do you?

 

I want to inspire you to dream bigger and better goals.

 

Stop saying No to yourself and allow you soul to tell you which way you are meant to go.

Through dreaming and our imagination we can align with our higher self/ source.

 

There are several questions I ask myself before making decision on the viability of a really great dream:
Will it take me in the direction I want to be going in?
How will it feel when I achieve it?
Will this make me a happier and more fulfilled person?
Will I regret not doing this?
Will achieving this dream hurt anybody else?
Do I know how I am going to achieve this?
If you get 4 x yes and 2 x no (and in that order!)  then you are all set to go!

 

If you do know how you are going to achieve this, then it isn’t a big enough dream for expansion it is more like a side step! Valid but it isn’t going to set your soul on fire.

 

The next phase is to make the decision.

 

Make the dream feel real and soon your desire will be so great that there is no decision to be made any more. A decision isn’t a … well I kind of want that, it is a burning up the tarmac- Yes I want, I really want that with all my heart and soul. That is a decision!  That decision changes your level of vibration.

 

THIS IS WHERE THE ‘MAGIC’ STARTS

 

Your level of Awareness has jumped up a few notches.
You are now radiating a higher level of vibration and you start attracting new thoughts, new ideas and new people to you.  The Law of Attraction states that what you radiate out you attract back to yourself. You are in a new and expanded sate, you are creating a wonderful new pathway in your experience.
Once you understand the Law of Attraction and all the other Universal Laws you start to understand that Dreaming and setting goals is not a matter for chance and luck, it is a process.

 

You heard me right, success is a process, one that can be repeated time and time again.

 

It always starts in the imagination- we think in pictures.
Then through emotions we commit this dream, this glorious vision to our sub conscious mind. We keep the emotion alive and flowing through us and we keep our level of vibration high. The Universe then has to open up the ways for success.  Remember if you are tuned into a certain radio station of FM you aren’t going to receive a different one on AM. You will receive what you put out. You are a vibrational transmitter!
Your new awareness will open up opportunities for you, that previously you passed by.
Step by step you are on your way to the vision you created in your mind at the top of this note.
Take action and that make it happen.

 

There is no reason not to succeed.

When you understand your higher self and the Universe – there is a simple system- when we say Yes and Commit to something, new people and things turn up to help us.  As your confidence grows in this process, your desire, and the associated the movement of energy will dissolve your fears. Get up to speed vibrationally and stay in the ‘essence’ of this vibration- how would it feel?  Keep that feeling active and attract success to you.  Don’t ignore the nagging fears altogether, be thankful they have arisen. They are showing you that you are feeling out of alignment and that needs addressing.
Let fear be your friend, allow it to inform you and then let it go.  Fears are part of life.  There is always value in the message?  The energy of fear can be turned around to serve you – use the clarity it brings of what you don’t want to become ever more focused on what you do want.

 

Start the process today and begin building your dream. It is such fun and can be added to over several days/ weeks. Then write it down, you keep adding details but write them down. Writing it down creates a deep bond in our mind. I like the idea of having a special box and cutting out images of the dream life that ou want to create. Not  vision boar but a box for “WHAT IS” Make it in the present tense and as you drop in images feel the excitement of already having these parts of your dream.

 

The most important part of this process is to allow your imagination to go wild and have great fun with it.

 

ENJOY!
Shame Can Be Lethal

Shame Can Be Lethal

The emotion of shame can be lethal!

Ok, so a huge statement but negative emotion can be as destructive as acid and as poisonous to our wellbeing as arsenic.

 

Truth!

 

Shame, my dictionary defines as “a painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behaviour”

 

The roots of the word shame are thought to derive from an older word meaning “to cover”; as such, covering oneself, literally or figuratively, is a natural expression of shame (Wikipedia)
Shame can be something someone has done to us or it can be something that we have done to ourselves, which ever the case the emotions attached to Shame are potentially lethal.  The danger of Shame, is the damage that the associated emotions can do to us and probably not the act itself.

 

When we repeatedly churn over in our mind a shameful situation and the emotions of these thoughts, lodge deep down in our subconscious mind, that is when we are potentially putting ourselves in destructive situation. Our emotions are vibrations and if we consistently are giving out these very low level vibrations we will attract the same crap back to us.  I am not making light of the situation, I am merely giving it like it is!

The Law of Attraction decrees that like is attracted to like. 

The thoughts that we focus upon  and give enough emotion to, will manifest themselves in our lives.  The important part here is, that thoughts that we want and thoughts we do not want are equally capable of manifesting!

 

We want to feel good and attract great things back to us not allow ourselves to wallow in pain/Shame for any longer than we need to!

 

Shame is “the most human, primitive emotional experience “and some thing that we all sometimes feel.
Dr Brene Brown defines shame as

 

” the intensely painful  feeling that we are  unworthy of love and belonging”

 

So, why do we get it?

 

Well, it can be memories we recall that trigger it, or it can be a conscious awareness that we have done something we wish we hadn’t!

 

It can be something someone has done to us or it can be something that we have done to ourselves, which ever the case the emotions attached to shame are potentially lethal.  Shame becomes the damage that the associated emotions do to us and probably not the act itself.

The good news?

We can over come this and start a gorgeously fresh chapter our life.
We must  acknowledge that we have this insidious feeling and then take positive action to gently remove it.
There is no point beating up ourselves anymore, but as we are learning, any feelings which are deep routed in in subconscious mind can be changed, if we have the determination to do so.

 

As Dr Brown says, “shame thrives on secrecy, silence and judgement” once we acknowledge it and bring it out in the open it must die.  So we must stop any feelings of guilt (another completely useless emotion- by useless I mean one that serves absolutely no purpose at all- except for self-destruction) and shame and decide to remove them from our mind.

 

I love Maxwell Malt’s notion of casting off emotional scars, which are “far deeper than any physical scars and harder to remove. They bring on a vicious cycle of negative feelings which never ends- until you resolve to heal the woundBut when you are determined to do this, then you can set about removing the emotional scar.”

 

We have the choice not to let the emotion of Shame dominate our thoughts and hence our behaviour and results. We must forgive ourselves first -always – and then forgive those who have wronged us. I am not going all evangelical on you here, but as Buddha reputedly said

“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

So, to start overcoming emotions of shame

 

• 1.  Acknowledge your feeling of shame- it is ok and in all likelihood someone else created it. It is good to bring it out into the open and tackle it. Control your feelings rather than letting them control you!
• 2  Forgive yourself- always start by forgiving your self – then if you did wrong,  make amends with person you wronged.
• 3  Forgive the person who has wronged you – if someone else created the Shame
• 4. Make the conscious decision that you will not allow this emotional scar to any longer be part of your thought pattern.
• 5 Focus on what makes you feel better.  Let this “shame” go and part of your past- you don’t need it any longer, it is not serving you.

 

Dr Joseph Murphy, in his fabulous book, The Power of the Sub Conscious Mind says, that when we make the conscious choice to change and awaken our mental and spiritual powers,

 

“you know what you want, and you will definitely refuse to let the thieves (thoughts) of hatred, anger, hostility and ill will rob you of your peace, harmony, health and happiness. You cease to become upset by people, condition, news and events by identifying your thoughts immediately with your aim in life….”

 

So let us remove the power from that emotion of Shame, acknowledge it, but recognise shame as a mere scratch, one that will heal.  We must remember that we attract like for like, so once we acknowledge something we don’t want and decide to deal with it, then we must must let it go and stop dwelling on it.

 

We are spiritual beings and we have the ability to use out intellect to be in control of our thoughts.

Isn’t that magnificent?

We are free to focus on our purpose in life,  of living with joy and excitement for what lies ahead of us.
Here is wonderful 5 mixture video of  an enlightening conversation between Dr Brene Brown and Oprah.
Shame is Lethal
Enjoy

6 Tips for Excellent Decision Making-  Part 2  (# 4 – 6)

6 Tips for Excellent Decision Making- Part 2 (# 4 – 6)

Part Two…

4. Don’t make your decisions based on your present circumstances

 

When we study and start to understand the Laws of the Universe such as the Law of Supply and The Law of Attraction, and by understand I mean that we acknowledge that they are as real as the Law of Gravity, it gives us the confidence to make decisions based on these Universal Laws. It seems to me that much of life success is about awareness.

 

We learn to make our decisions based on our infinite power, potential and unlimited supply.
Everything comes from an unlimited supply. What we have is a result of our conscious awareness of these Laws and how they work. It is our choice whether we over ride a paradigm of limited supply. The one we are vociferously taught as children and includes, greed and guilt and there never being enough for everybody.

This is  a really big one to understand!

Our intellect tells us that we are not limited, so we have to understand and accept this and over ride the emotional concept of the paradigm telling us that  we are limited.

Our paradigm is trying to control us and in its own way protect us. It wants us to stay in the nice comfortable safe zone…..

We can spend ages waiting for a change of circumstance before we feel we should make a decision. This is out and out procrastination!  If we look back to the Law of Attraction, this is quite clearly wrong. The longer we focus on what we don’t have, the more of that lack, we will attract back to us. We must consciously raise our vibration and hence attract more of the new “stuff” back to us.

We must not allow external circumstance to dictate our lives- this when we become aware is quite clearly ridiculous!

All the great leaders, accept that we become what we think about, this has become a Universal Truth. So let us make our decisions on where we want to end up and not on where we are now.

“To believe in the things you can see and touch is no belief at all; but to believe in the unseen is a triumph and a blessing.” ~Abraham Lincoln

5  Think Big- Never be Overwhelmed by the size of your Decision

Don’t be overwhelmed when you make a decision, by thinking about how you will get to the eventual goal.

Don’t let the overwhelm cloud you decisions.

There is the famous story of the boats arriving on a battle torn beach and the leaders burning their boats so the soldiers had no way of turning back. They had to commit 100% to the task in hand.

When we commit to a decision and really get behind it our energy changes. The end goal is so worthy of us, that every little sacrifice we have to make on the way becomes insignificant.  It feels good!  Now this raises our level of vibration and so we start to attract new things back to us.

This is the Law of Attraction in play. It is one of the Universal Laws. It is as it is!  When we make a decision, we don’t need to know how we are going to get all the way to the top of the mountain, we only need to know how we are to start out to the brow of the first little hill. Each little summit we reach  on the way to our goal changes our level of awareness. There is no point in planning out the entire journey because you are only seeing it from where you are now.  You awareness will change as you progress: so don’t waste time planning your entire journey.

Make a decision, line up with and start. Now. Today!

 

6. The Mother of All Mistakes is to Make No decision At All!

The biggest mistake we can do, is to do nothing!

 

By practicing making decisions we gain confidence in our abilities. OK so we will make mistakes but learn to see these as part of the learning curve. Some people I know love making mistakes, it encourages them to keep trying and learning and expanding. If we make a mistake, we must be courageous. Admit it and if it is prudent to give up- give up. If we are still determined to get to our end goal, go about it another and better way. Our decisions are made in private, but they exactly influence our results and our results are how the world sees us and the legacy we leave.

 

 “We think in Secret and it comes to pass.
Environment is but our looking glass. “
James Allen

 

The more we practice this, the easier it becomes.

 

Why?

Because we gain confidence each time. Our awareness expands and our vibration rises. We align ourselves with a flow of wellbeing. You often hear people saying that time after time great things keep happening to them. Well they achieve a success and they keep attracting more of the same back to them. The Law of Attraction supplies like for like. It can take as little as one good decision to start the ball rolling  and change the direction of your life.

As our awareness expands and we understand that successful decision making isn’t luck, it is a formula and one we can repeatedly put into practice. Then, finally  we realise that we have always been capable of being a great decision maker…. the rub of it…no one ever told us so!!

So remember the formula for great decision making is:
Think, gather information and look at it from as many sides as possible.
Decide
Commit 100% and put all your energy into it
Be accountable to yourself and others.
Enjoy the outcome.
6 Tips for Excellent Decision Making-  Part 1 (#1-3)

6 Tips for Excellent Decision Making- Part 1 (#1-3)

What is a decision?

Well,  Dr Carole N Hilderbrand wrote

“The word decision comes front the Latin roots, ‘de’ meaning from and ‘caedere’, meaning to cut..therefore a decision means cutting from any other possibility. A TRUE DECISION then, means you are committed to achieving a result, and then cutting yourself off from any other possibility.”

A decision is answering a question. Every question has to have an answer. It might not be obvious to us, but it is there if we know how to tune in to it. Wise people ask great questions and the answers to these enable them to grow. When we tune into a question the answer will come to us. But we must remember that the answer can only come back to us on the level that we put out the question.

Einstein said

“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”

We must change our thinking up a notch, think outside of the box, see it from a different perspective and then we will find the answer.
We only attract back to us the level of energy that we are putting out.

That is why it is so important not to plan the entire route. Just plan the first step…more on this later…

1. Our ability to make effective decisions controls every single part of our life

Indecision can paralyse our life: it can stop us dead in our tracks!
How awful to get to the end of our lives and wish we had just made a few good decisions! Don’t they say the saddest words in the English language are –  If only…
The biggest mistake we can make in life is to do nothing; is to be afraid of making a decision.
We must learn to be courageous – the bigger the decision we must make, the more courage is needed.

 

Yet we are never taught how to make decisions! This seems absurd!

 
We want others to validate our decisions and build up our confidence, yet the friends and family members we ask have probably have the same inability as ourselves to make clear and concise decisions. There are hundreds of people all too ready to advise us, probably people who know less than us but love the sound of their own voices!
I adore this quote by Napoleon Hill- let us learn to listen and learn and be less free with our advice!

…let one of your first decisions be a closed mouth and open eyes and ears… Genuine wisdom is usually conspicuous through modesty and silence.”

 
 I have a wonderful friend who blames her indecisiveness on her mother’s indecisiveness!  This is quite clearly ridiculous- she manages to make the decision every time, that she is not ready to decide on something, or wait for a little bit longer or what ever else the excuse might be. Her subconscious mind is controlling her ability to decide. The wonderful part is that she is making a decision every time, (albeit one with no purpose) that she is bad at making a choice and so reinforcing this nonsensical pattern of behaviour!
Why don’t we teach our children to make decisions ? I don’t know? It should be a simple and gentle process, one that is fun and easy to comprehend. Rather than telling people what to do, why don’t we ask of them more often, “What do you think?” Allow them to choose for themselves. Allow them to strengthen the muscle of decision- like all our mental faculties it needs a work out!
When we become really great at decision making, we virtually eliminate chaos from our mind. We restore a wonderful and natural order. Great decision makers remove that awful mental conflict and churning of the mind. Doesn’t it feel great when we have made a decision and get fully behind it?  Notice how calm we feel and how much more energy we have. What is actually happening is that we are coming into alignment with our decision and our vibration is changing.  We are moving up  a level and new and exciting things will come to us. More of this later….

 2. The Conflict between Emotion and Reason

 

There is frequently a battle going on between our conscious or thinking mind and our subconscious or emotional mind.

Our conscious mind has the ability to filter through information and make decisions on what it believes to be right. The subconscious mind has no ability to reason. It must accept what is fed into it: it can not differentiate between truth and a lie. Up until the age of about 6 our little minds have no ability to choose what to believe, everything we hear, see, feel and are told, goes into our subconscious and forms our belief system (our paradigms) Some are great and others can be utterly ridiculous!

We can think anything we choose to think- that is a fact. But interestingly, our thoughts tend to be in harmony with our paradigms. Our mind wants any easy life and it likes harmony. Discord sets us into a possible fight or flight reaction, our mind panics and all hell can break loose!    Remember here that we attract like for like, so if our mind tells us to stay in the same place we will attract to us more of the same. This is why it is so very easy to become stuck in a perpetual rut of the same old thing.

Our belief patterns, or habits, or paradigms or what ever you wish to call them, make us comfortable to make decisions on what we can see and know in the present moment. Let us call them paradigms for sake of argument! Our paradigm will restrict our decision making based on past mistakes, fear of failure and a whole host of inherited and quite probably incorrect beliefs, for example we all have those little voices…

You can’t do that… Why did you ever even think you were capable of doing that?  You know the little scratchy and shrieking voices of doubt (OR MAYBE IT IS JUST ME….REALLY?!)  You know it will happen all over again… I don’t why you are even bothering to try again…. YES THOSE VOICES…. Money is the root of all evil… the list can be endless and has quite probably rooted into your subconscious that money is evil and that we are born to be a failure and miserable, enduring a mundane life!

Those paradigms put up  a real fight, they don’t want to be silenced!

Well Bah Humbug to that!

 

(By the way Money is not the root of all evil, the inappropriate use of money is a root of evil or inappropriate and shameful wastage……)

Well it is time to shut them up and regain control!

Thank Heavens for that!

 

With greater awareness of how our mind works we can recognise the dilemma and use our intellectual faculties to sort it out.
Once we are aware of the Universal Laws, we are able to replace our paradigms with a new set of beliefs. We never want to fight against a belief, as that in effect attracts more energy to it, but we deliberately want to replace it with new ones and align with these.

3.  Trust your intuition and stop being influenced by others

Don’t be swayed by other people’s decisions. There will always be bucket loads of negativity that you can find and use to head on back to the procrastination playground. There will always be a host of the “I can’t do x,y,z brigade”  but if you really start to tune into yourself and your dreams/ purpose, then people will appear who can help take you to the next level.

” If you are influenced by the Opinion of others, you will have no desire of your own”

Napoleon Hill.

When we lack self confidence we tend to want other people’s approval. This can be disastrous when applied to decision making, because unless we are asking people who have the same aims and similar goals, the answers are likely to stop us in our tracks. We are conditioned as humans to like a nice and comfortable safe zone. So many people can offer you so many opinions – do you know the ones I mean,  “why would he ever fancy you? … Heaven’s you could never be good enough to do that… Why on earth do you think you are capable of….” are you getting the picture? Do a few “friends” spring to mind (?)  I told you the paradigm would be back and back again and that you just have to watch out for its downright interference in your decision making!

 

I am not saying make ill informed decisions, I am suggesting that you gather all the facts available at this time, think of the bigger picture ( e.g. the gain of the end goal) and learn to listen to your intuition and reasoning faculties inside. Step back for a little moment, quieten yourself down and start listening to what is going on inside you,. The answer to nearly every decision will almost certainly already there inside.  Allow the answers to move into your consciousness

I love the advice Bob Proctor gives.

He lists four great questions to ask yourself before making a decision:
1. Do I really want to be, do or have this?
2. Will being, doing or having this, move me in the direction of my goal?
3. Is being, doing or having this IN Harmony with God’s Laws or the Laws of the Universe?
4. Will being, doing or having this Violate the  rights of others?

If the first three answers are YES and the forth answer a NO, then go for it!

“When I have gathered enough information to make a decision, I don’t take a vote, I make a decision”

Ronald Regan
 

To save this being too long winded part two (#4-6) is coming tomorrow!

THANK YOU

THANK YOU

The power of a simple Thank You is enormous.

 It makes you feel good and it makes the receiver appreciative of you.

Alana Morissette wrote a beautiful song called Thank You.

I had forgotten about this song and its epic lyrics, a lovely tribute to gratitude, self awakening and the Law of Attraction.
(Full lyrics at the Bottom of this post).

 

“How bout getting off of these antibiotics
How bout stopping eating when I’m full up
How bout them transparent dangling carrots
How bout that ever elusive “could have””

 

It is about taking responsibility for ourself and stopping blaming everyone else for what is wrong in our world.

We must learn that we are responsible for our thoughts and that these ultimately create our health and results.

We must stop reaching for cure all false promises and always try our best. We must learn to live our life to the full and with no regrets of things that might have been if we had just…..

 

“Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence”

Unless we can Thank and Forgive, we go no where.

Harbouring hatred and bad thoughts only creates more of the same and eventually creates dis ease within us.
 By looking at the things, that we think create the problems in our lives, from a different perspective, we often can see them as a blessing, as a reason we are expanding our conscious awareness. There are always two sides to every coin.
Alanis Morisette I think I am right in saying, wrote this after a trip to India where I assume she started a journey of self discovery and meditation.
Thank you thank you silence”
The double thank you for silence, is really demonstrating the singer’s emphasis on the power of silence.
There is such enormous importance in finding time to be quiet and to reflect and to ask for guidance.  Some people meditate in silence, some use guided meditation, some people use prayer- interestingly the results can be the same. An alignment with what you believe to be your Source.
When our awareness expands, we can start to see that the Universe is infinite and that the Laws of the Universe are just as they are. When we start to understand the Universal Laws and make the conscious decision to align with them, then good things inevitably must come to us.
We can choose to play nicely with these Laws and use them to our advantage or we can stay stuck where we are, or worse still start going downwards and backwards. Let us take a simple Law, that of Nature for example. If we want to grow a good crop we must sew it at the right time of year or it will fail.  If we plant a crop of corn we can’t expect a field of potatoes. These laws, like the Law of gravity- just are.  We don’t step off a building and expect not to fall.  We know gravity will take us downwards. When we understand this and we stop trying to fight against them, then we are on the path of understanding. Once we understand we can create an inevitable path, and one that can be repeated at will, to the destiny of our choice.
“How bout me not blaming you for everything
How bout me enjoying the moment for once
How bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
How bout grieving it all one at a time”
She sings of taking responsibility and of enjoying the Now.  It is too easy to spend time in a whirl of negative thoughts and miss what is happening in the Now. It passes too quickly, and seems to pass more quickly as we get older and maybe as we get wiser?!
Enjoy life while we can, for each moment of Now, as once we can think about it, it is in the past, already!
She goes on to say
“The moment I let go of it
Was the moment I got more than I could handle.”

When we stop pushing against everything and just allow things to be, our life changes.

When we stop fighting, our vibration becomes in harmony with Spirit
When we are in harmony with Spirit/Universe/God then it is possible to feel the floodgates of gratitude opening and it is like a tidal wave of wellbeing that floods over us.
The raised vibration must bring back to us a higher vibration – the Law of Attraction decrees that we attract like to like.

We do not attract what we would like and this is hugely important, we attract to us, more of what we are.

So when we feel good, we are aware of more that is good. We attract good to us. Conversely when we feel broke for example, we are likely to attract to us people who empathise with a state of lack and to actually prevent financial wealth coming our way. It sounds too simple to be true, but it is the Law!
Remember the first time you fell in love… they used to say , ah she has rose tinted glasses and everything looks peachy!
But our vibration is so high that we really do notice a different set of things going on around us. We become aware of a new level of vibration. We attract to us a new and expanded world. A glorious world of love and gratitude.
Now if that relationship fails, in an instant we stop seeing all the beauty around us and feel terrible, dejected and downcast.
We meet up with friends and all complain about all the awful things going on in the world. We wallow around in a low level of vibration.
As a little aside here, I love how Abraham (Ester Hicks) talks about this – that when you feel terrible the last thing you need is some sappy friend coming around and wallowing with you and making you feel worse. You want someone, who you know cares about you , but you want them to make you feel better, to raise your level of emotion up the scale, just a little bit.  I love meeting up with people who when the time has finished, you feel better that when you started. Those are true friends.
Morissette continues
“How bout no longer being masochistic
How bout remembering your divinity
How bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How bout not equating death with stopping”
I will join with her, lets stop beating ourselves up and let us remember that we are God’s highest creation. We have the ability to choose and we have the choice to align with Source.  It is OK to feel sad, it is OK to show your emotions. It is a good release valve and far better than bottling feelings up inside.
Her final line…”How bout not equating death with stopping”
I salute you Ms Morissette- we have been so conditioned to believe that this is it that there is no afterlife.
 I find it so very strange that when so many people believe this , that they don’t stop to enjoy the now. They work to make money, make themselves ill, spend their money on making themselves better and die unhappily and unfulfilled.
We must take the time to enjoy the now, to celebrate this amazing life that we have been given.
No, I am not saying take no notice of what is going on around us, that would be ridiculous, but get a balance.
Get a perspective on life.
Enjoy it now!
“Thank you, Thank You Silence.”
More importantly thank you Alana Morissette for this gorgeous and thought provoking song.
 
“Thank U”
