The way you feel

The way you feel is your point of attraction. If there was ever a single principle to understand and really integrate into your psyche – then this is it.  The way you feel is your point of attraction. This has to be the most important mind-power principle.

You are a energy magnet. The energy of your feelings determines what you attract into your experience.  In the most simple terms, when you feel good, then you attract more good feeling people and events into your life.  And when you feel “bad” ( and the many variations of that) then you attract matching people and experiences into your life.

There is no more important thing you can do than learn to manage how you feel.  How you feel is the basis of everything that comes into your life.  When you finally “get it” that you can control how you feel and thus you can control the quality of your life, this is very empowering.  You have the ability to control who and what comes into your life.

I’m not talking about the “specifics” of that – rather the “generalities” of that.
When you feel good you will attract people and events into your life that will feel good to you.

Now isn’t that worth knowing? Isn’t that worth a fortune?  I think it is. How many people  do your know personally  – or see in the media – who feel totally at the mercy of life.  They talk in terms of “I was just lucky”.   They go through various superstitious routines in the hope that this will bring them luck. They hope the stars are in their favor. Anything – except the understanding that perhaps they have control over their life.

When you understand the power of your feelings and decide to learn to manage them –  then you change the course of your life for the better. This is truly empowering.

I will be teaching principles like this, and much more, in a forth coming teleseminar series that zeros in on the amazing power of the mind. Understanding how your mind works, is one of the most important keys to your longterm happiness. Stay tuned.


Attitude is everything

Abbie:  Sheesh Pam was in a cranky mood!

Jack: mmm. Her and a lot of other people like her.

Abbie: She’s needs an “attitude doctor”.

Jack:  Agreed. Attitude is everything – but most people don’t get it, do they?

Abbie: No.  When I see her, you know –  it’s a bit scary. I see a version of myself that might have been had I not discovered the power of the mind.  Thank goodness I now know that “attitude management” is a big part in how your life turns out.  Not that it’s always the first thing I want to do, of course. Some habits die hard.

Jack: It’s so simple on one level – and yet because of that, easy to overlook or downplay. Attitude, attitude. Attitude makes or breaks your day.

Abbie:  But she’s in my reality, right?  So what can I learn from that?

Jack:  Focus.  It’s telling you where your focus has been most recently. And probably the fact that you’ve heard Pam is uptight and the worrying-type.  You were expecting her, at some level, to be a bit difficult.  And bingo – she met your expectations.

Abbie:  Surprise, surprise, eh?  I got what I expected!

Jack: And if you continue thinking about her in that way, well of course … you know how it works….

Abbie: That’s the behavior I’m going to elicit from her.

Jack: Right.

Abbie: So what would you suggest?

Jack: Well, you know that law of attraction manages every interaction you have – every event that you experience.  When you take the time to manage your attitude – to make the best of whatever is happening – things begin to shift around you.

Abbie: I take control again.

Jack: Yes.  You take control of the only thing you actually have control over – your attitude – your state of mind.  You know that you can start imagining someone in your life behaving in the way you would prefer and thanks to our friend, Law of Attraction, that person will begin to morph to match your fantasy – the way you imagine them being when they are around you.

Abbie: Magic isn’t it?

Jack: It can certainly look that way.  But it starts with your attitude.  Attitude is everything.

Abbie: You’re such a good friend, Jack, Thanks!

Jack: Ditto

A day of surprises and a big reframe …

It was my birthday yesterday.  And it turned out to be a day of surprises – and a big reframe!

The first surprise came when I opened my email and saw several unexpected “happy birthday” messages. Another message was from a friend compiling a birthday list and wanting to add mine.  Talk about perfect timing!

The weather was perfect.  A morning social meeting became an extended lunch at my favourite Vietnamese restaurant. Then at around 3pm I set off for the Sunshine Coast (1.5 hour drive) where I am staying for two weeks.  As I was driving I was savouring the events of the day.

Then suddenly – within five seconds – the car I was driving came to an abrupt halt on a very busy motorway.  I only just managed to steer to the side of the motorway before the engine petered out.  You can imagine how I felt with two lanes of hectic holiday traffic speeding by as well as huge semi-trailers barrelling within half a metre (18 inches) of the car.  The car shuddered every time a semi-trailer screamed by. A few horns honked.

Feeling very rattled, to say the least, I called a roadside assistance service (thank God for mobile phones). Then I crawled across the passenger seat clutching my handbag and laptop – and escaped to relative safety some five metres away.

“Where did that come from?” I wondered. (There are no secrets here for anyone who understands how LOA works in your life) …..

Because of my work with energy alignment and law of attraction I knew that the only choice I had was to “make the best” of a seemingly bad situation. I couldn’t change the car problem – but I could choose my attitude or response to it.  So I did. I decided to make it “unimportant” – to downplay it – to reframe it – and see what happened.

It didn’t take long before a rather interesting – and certainly unexpected – reality began to unfold before my eyes.  Within ten minutes a road safety patrol officer stopped by.  The officer and I chatted away – he wished me “happy birthday” –  and before I realised, a tow truck had arrived.  The tow truck driver was friendly and chatty. He deposited the car and me at a safety point and also wished me ” happy birthday”.

Then I had to wait for a road assistance technician to arrive to assess the problem.  Again, the technician was very friendly and I received another “happy birthday”  wish.  Finally, the car had to be towed to a repair shop.  The tow truck driver (a different one) was very friendly and also added “happy birthday” wishes. Some three hours later and four unexpected conversations and birthday wishes, I was driven to my holiday destination and spent a pleasant evening socialising – more “birthday” wishes.

Today I phoned the car repair shop and was told the car wouldn’t be ready till next Monday due to their heavy work load.  (Damn) But … this afternoon I received a message that the car was done (nice surprise!). Finally I logged into Facebook and found a bunch of “happy birthday” wishes.

So what did I get for my birthday?

Well, I certainly received more birthday greetings from strangers than ever before.  I met a bunch of people – that I would not have otherwise met – who were friendly, chatty and helpful.

In other words, my birthday delivered some real surprises. I got to practise maintaining my alignment in the “face of seeming adversity” – and watched as that dynamic played out.

We may not be able to control circumstances, but we can certainly learn to control our response to any circumstance.  And ultimately that’s the only thing that matters! Attitude is everything.
