Manifesting Attraction

What Are You Desiring

Do you believe in manifesting attraction you get what you wish for?

Think about . . .

#1 – Creating reality.

Can you create your reality?

You have the power to control and drive. Of course to a degree since some things are out of our control. Through that power you make decisions and choices for yourself. Through that control you have the ability to respond or react as well as take action or not.

As surely as mountains are to be climbed and oceans sailed, your dreams are meant to come true.
This is why you’re here, to live the life of your dreams.
Not to be tested, challenged, and tried, but to conquer, champion, and rule.
Keep going, forge ahead, press on, 
and the day must dawn when your thirsts shall be quenched, and you, exalted.
Never settle for less, don’t ever think it’s too late, and never, ever, ever compromise a dream. ~Mike Dooley

#2 – Cultivating attraction.

How do you cultivate attraction for yourself? 

Ask yourself those “whys”. To understand and define what you need.

  • Why do you need what you desire?
  • Why is it a need vs. a want?

Ask yourself those “whats”. To create, attract and/or manifest to make it happen (aka become reality).

  • What intentions are you setting?
  • What steps/goals will you take to reach your desired outcome?
  • What action(s) do you take to bring it to fruition?

Life can only give you what you are prepared to receive.

How To Attract . . .

Where does that attraction come from to get what you need and want as well as crave and desire?

  • Building self confidence and independence.
  • Taking risks.
  • Learning to develop and experience growth.
  • Gaining experiences.

Confidence is not about being fearless and reckless. It is your ability to be aware of your fears. Do you know your strengths as well as your weaknesses? Do you own your power and strength and use that to your best advantage! 

It is about believing in yourself and being true to who you are. Do you like “you”? Do you know what you do well at? That is a powerful attractor asset to have! 

Do you make time for you? To take care of you and your needs! Do you spend time working on you, especially in knowing your abilities and skills? This helps you be confident, independent and self sufficient!

Golden Glitter

Wandering . . .

Ms. Healthy Diva Life recently wrote a blog post called Feeling Good & A Little Lost. It does feel good to feel good. It is okay to feel lost. Just ease into the wandering, right!

Talking about feeling lost made me think of J.R.R. Tolkien. “All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter” is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien for his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.

“All that gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien


Glittery . . . Shiny . . .

We all experience that feeling of being lost and at times we may find we lost ourselves too in the process! How do you continue moving forward? How do you get back on track in living your life? This is when you need to take a time out and make time for yourself to do a self check!

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Do you know your “whys” when it comes to what you want?
  • Do you know what you want to do?
  • Do you know what makes you happy?
  • Do you know how to release and let go of what is no longer working best for you?

You wonder and wander! It is perfectly normal and okay to not know where you are going at times in living your life. Tune into your emotions and tap into your feelings to connect to your inner being. Really ask yourself the questions above to determine what truly excites you to move your whole being again! 


Wandering . . .

Focusing inward helps you in being aware of your mind and various energies as well as your heart and physical being too! It is perfectly normal and okay to be all over the place. Take the time to stretch your comfort zone in trying new things. Make mistakes to learn and develop. Gain new experiences to experience growth. Really wander!

Look at what you do have in your life! Appreciate and celebrate it. Be grateful and thankful. Each and everything received and given is a true blessing!

My grandmother talked about patience (which I have very little of – ha!). She talked about . . . In having patience you will find your purpose. Challenges, stresses and struggles will test your patience fully and completely. Throughout that test and the test of your patience will come your plan; your game plan, your next plan, etc. You will get through it and become a stronger person for it!


Making Time to Be!

We all grow by experiencing change! Practice to learn, develop and experience. We all change to transform! Practice to progress. We all go through life transitions! 

Practice . . . maintaining your center of balance, your health and happiness, and feeling good about yourself and where you are at. Be the Captain in steering your life, especially your healthiness and happiness!

Practice . . . self love and self care and compassion, owning and embracing your messy self, and counting your many blessings. The love you have for yourself matters in being there for yourself and your greatest someones! 

Practice . . . sharing, receiving and giving, coming from a place of love, and following your heart and your loves and passions and desires. Really lead with your heart and the rest of you will fall into place and be along for the ride!

Practice . . . that life is not a sprint to the finish line and to take the time to wander, get lost, find your way, and just journey along!

Life is Messy Beautiful . . . Wonder . . . Wander . . . Get Lost . . . The Best Is To Come When You Find Your Way Again! Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Adventuring

Outside

How about another way to be “connected”! A good majority of us spend time commuting to work, desk jockeying and “connecting” with technology. A good majority of us lead a healthy and happy lifestyle too!

Are you aware or not if you get enough of the natural though? Stopping work to gaze out the window is a great break idea. You relax and refocus – just let the mind and body wander and release. It can be refreshing and re-energizing too. Then you are ready to get back to it and tackle it!

Switch Up that screen time to scenic time! 

Where does your mind go when you think about the most beautiful place you have seen? 

I know what some of your are thinking . . .

Great! I love and live for the outside world.

No Thank You! I am good inside.

That is okay though! You can either go to nature or bring it indoors!

Getting outside or bringing the outdoors in does a whole being GOOD!

GO on an Adventure! Take a little risk and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Learn new skills and abilities and gain experiences. Storytelling, capturing (i.e. through the creative – photography, painting, etc.) and making memories.

A FREE form of movement, activity and exercise! Switch up the routine. Develop inner and outer strength. Spend quality time with yourself and your whole being.

  • Improve function in general (i.e. mental, emotional, physical, etc.).
  • Energizing and invigorating.
  • Stress reducing.

Play, laugh and have FUN! Take a walk, search for the natural (i.e. shells, fauna and flora, wildlife, etc.), garden, meditate, etc. Join in on a group activity. The possibilities are limitless! 

  • Pure enjoyment.
  • Escaping to the natural – refresh, renew and get back on track.
  • R&R

BE in the present moment and mindful! Pause and reflect. Take in the air around you (i.e. pine forests, salt water, etc.). Stop to take in the scenic views. Savor and soak in the experience!

  • Mindfulness and calmness.
  • Focus vs. distraction(s).
  • Creativity

ADD in the natural and greenery to your home and working environment! Plants and florals. Find a room with a view or just a view in general (i.e. window, photos, etc.). Find your green space to escape to for the natural (i.e. grass, parks, gardens, etc.).

  • Receiving a dose of the natural (i.e. air, green, sunlight, etc.).
  • Engaging your senses.
  • Add in the food element (i.e. farmers market, you pick fruits and veggies, gardening, etc.).

Intuitive Self Care

For Your Whole Well Being

Do you take 5 minutes or even 30 minutes to tune into your intuitive self?

  • To unleash your imagination.
  • To get curious.
  • To do absolutely nothing.

To tune into yourself and tune everything else out!

Being able to listen and act on your intuition is possible and with a little practice soon enough becomes second nature! You learn to believe and trust in yourself, especially in making decisions and choices. You learn to think more clearly and that gives you clarity in tuning into your intuition and coming from a place of love by following your heart. You learn to be one with yourself and tap into what you need, want, desire, and crave!

Does your intuitive self crave creativity and/or exploration? To play, laugh and have fun. Do you integrate creativity throughout your day? To find that inspiration and motivation. Creativity is good for the whole well being; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Getting creative is like breathing and moving. It promotes self love and self confidence. It cultivates healthiness and happiness. It creates innovation and thinking outside the box. It gives you a mood booster as well as an energy booster!

Some Creative Ideas to Consider Doing

  • Drawing or coloring.
  • Journaling or writing.
  • Singing or playing a musical instrument.
  • Listening to music or dancing.
  • Tuning into the “green spaces” either indoors or outdoors.
  • Gathering inspiration and motivation through various mediums.
  • Tapping into your senses.
  • Wondering and wandering.

DO What MOVES You!!! Spark your curiosity. Make the world come alive around you. Discover the magic that lets your creative being come out to play!

Just imagine how much more aware and awake you can be by tuning into your intuition! How much more you will open yourself up to experience. How much more you will want to slow down the pace to soak it in and savor it. How much more you will be in the present moment and just want to be!

Manifesting Love

Love Sweet Love

We all search and seek out love! How do you manifest love for yourself? How about others, especially your greatest someones?

  • To love and be loved.
  • To give and to receive.
  • To belong and be a part of something.

DSC_0453

How do you open your heart as well as your mind to receive the love you are searching and seeking?

  • Knowing what you want and why.
  • Learning to forgive, especially yourself.
  • Learning how to be open to receive what you want.
  • Learning to release and let go of what is no longer serving you.
  • Stretching . . . experiencing . . . growing . . .

Really think about shifting gears! Coming from a place of love versus fear. Getting the mind and the heart together as one team. Believing, valuing and trusting yourself by being who you are!

Knowing

Do you know what you want and why! What do you want to receive? What do you want to give? A key piece in manifesting is getting clear on exactly what it is you want and the reasoning behind it (aka the why?)!

  • What is your practice? Coming from a place of love in following your heart.
  • What is your focus? Being clear on why you want what you want.
  • What is your passion? Doing more of what you love.
  • What is your purpose? Tuning and tapping into your hopes and wishes as well as your dreams and desires.

DSC_0434

Learning

Learning to forgive and letting go of the guilt in being and doing for YOU! You will start to open up more. You will start to attract more of what you want. In being more open and in attracting more of what you want you will open yourself to the possibilities and opportunities!

What are you opening to? Involve your mind and heart and whole being. Engage your senses and feelings. Imagine and envision. In knowing what it is you want you bring that into your life by manifesting, attracting, going for it, and doing it! 

Practicing and learning to release and let go! Especially of what is no longer working for you or serving your best interest. This is not so easy when you want to be the one in control! Think about how you can be more open to receiving what you want.

  • Being curious and exploring.
  • Adventuring and trying new things.
  • Being flexible in order to shift, transition and just adapt.
  • Learning, developing and experiencing growth.
  • Stretching yourself and your whole being from the inside out.
  • Gaining those life experiences and lifetime memories.
  • Expressing what you want and why!

Experiences Are Part of Your Story

Creating Your Story One Experience, One Moment, One Chapter At A Time

You find your path and define it as you go along. Your path sets you on the course to journey along. Those experiences and those moments become a part of the story you create.


Journeying Along . . .

  • There are times you have to ask for help along the way. This helps you communicate, interact, connect, and engage.
  • There are times you have to ask for directions. This helps you in stopping to process. This helps you in pausing to breathe. This helps you redirect.
  • There are times you have to unpack and regroup; mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This helps you create space and set boundaries. This also helps you learn how to release and let go of what is no longer working or serving your best interests.


Opening Up . . . Being . . . Letting Go . . .

It can be uncomfortable to open yourself up, however; vulnerability helps you grow and evolve! Being vulnerable is okay and not a weakness or flaw. It can become an essential part of who you are and how you express yourself by living from within your being! Humility goes a long way too.

We all experience the good, the bad, at times the ugly, and everything in between! You can be in control of how you make decisions and choices. You can be in control of how you respond and react. It can serve you or sabotage you and you choose which one it will be! 

Make the time to slow down and be more! All that rushing about. All those excuses about not having the time. Stop the “busyness” – your 20’s turn into your 40’s and your 40’s into your 80’s before your own eyes in hurrying and rushing about to the next and the next and the next!


Sink Your Toes Into the Sand!

Remember . . .

  • MAKE Time For Yourself. Make the space you need for you and your whole well being.
  • DO What You Love. Find the fun and play as well as the joy and happiness.
  • TAKE Note of the Beauty Around You. Practice to progress . . . Be grateful, appreciative and thankful . . . Celebrate more . . .
  • EMBRACE Your Journey. Explore, adventure, travel . . . Communicate and interact as well as engage and connect . . . Learn, experience growth and gain life experiences . . .

Manifesting

Putting My Word for 2017 Into Action

What does manifesting mean to you? Love to Hear, Please Share!

20150413_145606
Getting to the Heart . . .

For me it is a multitude of things.

  • Putting the “over” on the down low and remembering to keep it simple.
  • Being more . . . mindful, present, aware, grateful, focused, thankful, etc.
  • Becoming a better person and putting my best self out there each and every day.
  • Doing more of what I love because it inspires, motivates and drives me to get out there to experience life.
  • Coming from a place of love and following my heart’s needs and wants as well as dreams and desires.

Here is how I am putting my word, manifesting, into action for 2017!

My Top 5

  • Capturing
  • Creating
  • Focusing
  • Stretching
  • Wandering

Capturing

Do you make time to dream, imagine, visualize? What do you do with those thoughts (i.e. vision board, picture book, inspiration cloud, etc.)?

Focus on the now! What do you need and want as well as crave and desire? Think about manifesting! Imagine and picture yourself going after it. Nurture, nourish, drive, and fuel IT!

232323232-fp83232-ydnpcuvbwsnrcgu-7;4-nu=3235-563--;3-WSNRCG=37-5-5624-325nu0mrj
Focusing In & On . . .

Creating

Do you have a hobby? Do you give yourself the time and the space to enjoy that hobby?

Unleash your creative being! It can boost your mood, energy and spirit. It can give you inspiration and motivation as well as reflection and relaxation. It can get your whole being flowing and moving again. Remember to tap into your creative side!

DSC_0034
Creating . . .

Focusing

Do you ever feel like you do not multitask well? I do, so you are not alone. At times multitasking is overload for the mind and body coordination and may create errors, burn out, disruption, distraction, etc. Think about how your whole being feels doing one thing at a time! 

Yes you can do anything you put your mind, body and soul into, however; you cannot do everything! Remember that! 

Practice being present and focusing in on the now and what deserves your attention! Build a healthier and happier relationship with yourself in setting boundaries, creating space and giving yourself a little slack too. Your whole being will thank you for unplugging and giving it some much needed R&R!

Big Picture to the Details and Everything In Between!!!

Stretching

Do you stretch your comfort zone to try new things?

  • To travel and adventure.
  • To explore and experiment.
  • To connect and engage.
  • To communicate to interact.
  • To learn to develop.
  • To experience growth to gain experiences.

dsc_0137
Filling Your Bucket . . .

It may be a little uncomfortable at times to stretch, but with practice you will figure out what you like and do not like to feel more at ease! You may become more flexible and adaptable. You may want to take a little risk in exploring and experimenting in trying new things. You learn to not be so fearful or afraid in making mistakes and learn a little humility when it comes to failures. Get out there, go for it and embrace the challenges and the successes! 

Wandering

My favorite form of reflection, relaxation and/or meditation is wandering! aka Escaping to the Great Outdoors. I refresh and recharge my whole being. I feel like a better person too!

What Are You Up To? Love to Hear, Please Share.


Your Heart’s Desire

Coming From A Place of Love

In Following Your Heart

To make each day a new day to start anew! Is a true blessing to appreciate and to be grateful and thankful for. To find the inspiration and motivation to be, to do and to just get out there! To treat each and every day as a gift to treasure. To be present, mindful and make every moment count! 

The magical: By dreaming and desiring you develop, experience growth and gain experiences. 

The reality: With determination, drive and hard work that your dreams can come true in focusing on what you need, want, crave, and most of all desire.

dsc_0338
One BIG World Out There!

There is nothing more inspiring and motivating than visualizing your dreams and focusing on your desires!  To find your strength within the challenges and the courage to continue on. To discover your heart’s desire by finding your loves and passions. To do what is true and best for you and your whole well being!

  • To communicate, interact, connect, and engage your whole being.
  • To nurture and nourish your whole well being.
  • To be true and honest with yourself
  • To believe, value and trust in who you are.
  • To learn, experience growth and gain life experiences.

dsc_0300
Being Your Own Captain . . .

Do you ask yourself what you want to focus your energy on? It is important to focus your energies on inspiration and determination as well as what motivates and drives you. Do you give it enough time and attention? It is important to create the time and space you need, especially to do more of what you love to do.

Think about how you dream and if you dream big enough or not! Think about your desires and if they challenge you enough to be you, do well and make you feel good. Think about how your dreams and desires make you curious to explore and discover your loves and passions as well as your potential and power. Think about how your dreams and desires make you feel, especially in making your heart joyful and your being happy!

Then get out there and pursue more of it! It does you good to hope, wish and dream. It does you good to go after what you need and want as well as crave and desire. Your desires are worthy of your time and energy to pursue if they are true to you and who you are!

Focusing Inward

Reflecting & Redirecting

Do you know the percentage of time you spend focused on technology every day? Especially when technology assists you in your 8 to 5 job. Especially when you are waiting or bored. We spend a good majority of our time reacting to technology!

Technology has broaden our worlds. However, we react more than reflect and at times that gives us no sense of direction. Our attention and focus is so directed outwards with technology, especially cell phones, computers and technology devices and even televisions. Are we truly thinking for ourselves at times?

You lose your sense of direction throughout the day in responding to technology because it is distracting and disrupting! You need to remember to take the time to just be and shut if off for a few minutes throughout the day. When you take the time to step back it gives you clarity and a chance to regroup your thinking processes. You may even feel like a more productive, efficient being too!

How about directing that focus inward for a change of pace?

dsc_0258
Focusing Inward . . .

Do you want to be a part of the world you are living in? Life does not have to happen to us if we learn how to take back the controls. To be in control of our lives, especially the choices and decisions we make on a daily basis. To be more present and mindful instead of looking to the future for the next latest and greatest! You can be in the present and prepare for your desired future. That is inspiration to find your passion to be purposeful. That is motivation to find what you love to do to be successful. 

  • Do you reflect at the end of the day, week or month? How?
  • Do you practice releasing and letting go, especially of what is not working for you or serving your best interests?

dsc_0159
Journeying . . . Experiencing . . . Growing . . .

We all need to make the time for ourselves, especially in listening to our needs! You need to tune into your inner voice and tap into your inner knowledge, guidance and wisdom. That is where you find your passions and learn what you love to do. That is where you find your emotions, feelings and thoughts. That is where you find your connection to communicate, interact and engage.

  • Do you address your actions, behaviors, emotions, and/or feelings? What about your habits and routines? Anything need an adjustment, change and/or just do away with?
  • Do you know what makes you confident and empowered? Do you know what is holding you back or in place?

dsc_0250
Being . . . Reflecting . . . Redirecting . . .

There are times where we need to zoom in and other times where we need to zoom out! Sometimes the details bog us down and we need to focus on a bigger scope. Sometimes the big picture is getting in the way of the details. A little reflection and redirection helps make things clearer! 

  • Do you look at the details as well as the big picture? Do you see the shades of gray among the black and white?

dsc_0249
Details . . . Big Picture . . . & Everything In Between . . .

Remember to ask yourself each and every day!

  • Am I learning as well as making mistakes?
  • Am I creating?
  • Am I experiencing growth?
  • Am I gaining the life experiences I need and want as well as dream and desire?

By getting to know who you are and how you tick you get to know your whole self for the better! It can be loving and caring. It can be freeing and transforming. It can be rewarding in so many ways (i.e. health, happiness, abundance, etc.)!

How Do You Make Time For Yourself and Your Whole Being? Love to Hear, Please Share.


Great Expectations

Discovering Your Path

Why do we allow certain things that show up on our welcome mat and knock on the door into our lives? Then you wonder and ask yourself “Why is this showing up in my life?” Well you did let it in!

You lose control of creating that space for yourself. Those mental and physical blocks start popping up along with the insecurities and fears. The boundaries you have set are cracking and even at times coming down around you. Those great expectations form and become high and mighty!

DSC_0403
It can be a JUNGLE Out There!

Remember to call a time out! Do a self check of what you need right here right now and do it for your whole well being. Stop beating yourself up! Lighten up and go easy on yourself. Most of all just let go of the struggle to realize where you are is where you need to be right now!

You are the one in charge of the controls! You have the choice to do or not to do. Think about the reasoning to do or not to do. Then make the decision that works best for you!

“I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me.”~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

You have some things that come easy to you and other things that challenge you! Believe in yourself to give it a try instead of giving up right at the start. Believe that you deserve it and get after it. You can and you will!

DSC_0359

The two things I practice each and every day is my patience and my strength. No one wants to do those things that are uncomfortable let alone hard. I really look for the lesson in those teachable moments to experience growth. There is no bigger reward then gaining life experiences and making those lifetime memories!

“I have been bent and broken, but – I hope – into a better shape.”~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Every day is a NEW! day to start anew! Believe, value and trust in yourself and be true to who you are by living your life from within. Communicate, interact and connect to your whole being from within. Be open to the possibilities and opportunities to learn, experience growth and gain life experiences!

There will be good days and not so good days. You choose what kind of day you are going to have. You choose to adapt or react. You choose the positive or the negative. Every day will be different with opportunities, choices and experiences.

Beginning . . . Choosing . . . Finding . . . (Photos by RSheridan)

Some days strength, flexibility, balance, and patience eludes us! It is okay to admit a weakness or that you are struggling with something. It is okay to ask for help. Be honest with yourself and ask for what you need! 

We all are on our own journey! Listen to your inner guidance system. Pay attention to the signs. Ask for directions as well as help if needed. Adventure On!
