You Used To Be…

Recently I enjoyed reconnecting by chance with a former acquaintance.  We smiled.  We talked.  We shared.  We laughed.   As we were parting with the customary good wishes, she said to me, “You used to be so motivational; you’re much calmer now, but then, you’re older.”  With that, we walked our separate ways.  Mine was complemented with mutterings of indignation.  “Used to be?”  “Older?” “Doesn’t she see the real me?”  “My energy is…is…”  An “Ahha” moment—alternatively “uh-oh”–cooled my disorderly fire.  In truth, I couldn’t complete the sentence.  I didn’t know where my energy or true Spirit was, much less its description.

For the past several days, my brain was at the helm, consumed with unfair challenges occurring in my physical experience.  You know the kind:  money, health, family, etc.  Every day I picked up on my self-assigned chores designed to arrive at fixed solutions. Results could not be forced, and I had not really felt any positive excitement.  To this I added feelings of failure, followed by sadness, with despair–like a UPS package–waiting at my door.  Now that I think of it, in the midst of that everyday mental web, I had even bemoaned, “I’ve lost my Spirit!”

“You used to be.”  I realized that the little phrase is but an engaging stimulus to a person’s Spirit and not at all the affront the ego perceives.  It’s a phrase that forces a person into the Present Moment, where options exist and all choices are made.  Do I want to be where/what I was?  Or, should I compliment myself on having moved beyond that appearance?  For me, the choice was simple and without labor.  With that one phrased invitation, I became aware that my constant laments had inadvertently sent my true Spirit “out-to-lunch.”  Now all I need do is to bring it back, and “Bring It!

Perhaps one day someone will say to you, “you used to be.”  If you want the energy type referred to, claim it.  If you feel dis-ease with hearing it referenced, be joyful in your forward move.  Unknowingly, the speaker offered it in its own perfect time.  Don’t let the Ego interfere with your Journey.   Angel Blessings In Your DayN


Don’t Spill On Your Shirt

I was picking up my clothes at the dry cleaners when I overheard the conversation.  “I asked him  not to spill on this shirt—it’s the one I gave him—but naturally, he spilled on it.”  She rattled on, “I wanted to go out for steak, but naturally he chose an Italian place and of course he got tomato sauce all over it.”

An engaging story, it made me think that likely at one time or another we’ve each worried about spilling on the clothes we wear, probably because it’s one of our favorite pieces.  And there are a few of us who are also guilty of saying to a spouse, “please, don’t spill on your shirt.”  With all the worry and concern, ultimately we usually find a spill on that favorite shirt.  Why is that?

The Law of Attraction

Tip #1:  What you focus on you receive.  That is to also say, what you say you want, is what you get.   Okay, yes, the sentence is: “don’t spill on your shirt.”  Glad you asked.  Here’s the answer.

Tip #2:  The Universe responds to the action verb—not to linking verbs, contractions or negative adverbs (such as the word “don’t.”)  In our shirt example “spill on my shirt” is the action you actually place energy on.  And, that’s the energy to which the good-hearted Universe responds.

Sound complicated?  It’s simple really.  And those two little tips will greatly advance your success in attracting what you really want.  Here are some starter steps:

  •  Practice actively listening to the words you think  and speak.
  • Capture a few sentences in your daily routine and mentally diagram them out to the core subject, verb, and object, deleting  any linking verbs, contractions and negative adverbs you hear.
  • Say the remaining words aloud.  Remember: what  you say you want is what you get. 
  • Make wording corrections as needed for your positive expression and gain.  For instance,  in our example, try saying instead, “I keep my shirt clean.”
  • Repeat new sentence 3-5x with positive energy.
  • Follow with “and so it is.”

Practice active listening, and positive thinking and speaking in all areas of your life.  As you step  away from the old slang, you will be delighted in attracting more and more of your heart’s true desires.  Just relax, and keep your shirt clean.      Angel Blessings~ N


No You Didn’t Deserve This

I’ve been expriencing a cold and sore throat to be an irritating (literally) interruption in my otherwise energetic schedule. So, I complained aloud: “I didn’t deserve this.” Without hesitation the little cherubs to my right chimed in: “No you didn’t, you acquired it!” The message was offered sweetly and gently, although I clearly heard some giggling. “Okay,” I said, “I get it.” We each create these little speed bumps now and then. No one or anything outside of us is “placing it upon us.” A cold and sore throat? not my idea of a fine acquisition! What was I thinking? And that’s just it; I probably paid no regard.  But aha! The great thing is, seeing as I acquired it (created, attracted), I’m feeling empowered to plan its early disposition! And I happily look forward to acquiring (attracting; creating) something much more comfortable and enjoyable! Move along with me, Peeps, and pay attention to your acquisition time today. Bring your thoughts, words, and senses into focus for what you want; not what you fear you might “get.”  In your beautiful mind’s eye, “what You see, is what you get.”   Angel Blessings In Your Day!  N
