In the past few months I’ve been getting hit hard with life lessons from the Universe. Sometimes it feels like a 2 x 4 over my head. Ever feel like that?
Something deep inside of me kept saying, ‘pay attention to your thoughts because your thoughts create your beliefs which in turn create your life!’
Essentially, this IS the Law of Attraction.
I’ve always believed in the Law of Attraction but wasn’t quite sure how it worked.
I mean sure, think positive thoughts and you feel better, right?
The question becomes…is it really that easy?
The answer is no!
It’s not that easy and it’s not how the Law of Attraction works.
You see, you can’t just put a thought out there that you don’t believe and think it’s going to manifest. Instead, you have to feel it to believe it to ultimately manifest it.
How do you do that you might say? How do you feel what you’d like to manifest before you actually manifest it?
Well, you start by raising your vibration.
Many people look at me and think, ‘she’s a life coach and she published an empowerment book with Hay House so her life must be perfect.’
Truth is, I too am still on a journey of life and just because I teach empowerment does NOT mean I’ve reached Nirvana.
I mean seriously? If I already got to where I was going, what more would I have to learn and therefore teach?
Last week the Universe lined up the stars and put an online class right in front of me…
Natalie Ledwell’s Ultimate Success Masterclass.
And wouldn’t you know, what she teaches is none other than-
The Law of Attraction!
I signed up immediately to give myself a tune up and the first module reminded me of the importance of a positive daily practice. You see, our minds are generally set up to focus on the negatives in life. We tend to zero in on what we don’t have instead of what we truly want, need and desire. We are coming from a place of lack and so we continue to create more lack.
Natalie suggested raising your vibration with a positive consistent daily practice. Some suggestions were; meditation, affirmations, volunteering, journaling etc.-all of which I have suggested to my clients in the past and that I do myself- but the one I’d like to share with you today is ‘random acts of kindness…’
A few months ago I moved into a new home with my son. I purchased a brand new bed in honor of a new start in my new life. The mattress was great the first few weeks and then hello chiropractor!
I finally went back to the mattress store and said we need to make an exchange. I worked with a very nice gentleman who was obviously overworked and under appreciated. Every time my son and I would go to this store, this poor guy was doing the work of three people.
I tried what felt like a million beds and then narrowed it down to two. We decided that I would return in a few days after going back to the chiropractor to get aligned.
I called the night I was to return and was told that Chris (my salesman) had a family emergency and wouldn’t be back until Saturday.
My son and I went back on Saturday to make the final choice and when I saw him the first thing I asked was, “How are you? I heard you had a family emergency. I hope all is well.”
After a few moments we began to talk and he shared that his wife has cancer and he had to take a few days off to care for her.
I no longer looked at him as a ‘salesman’ but instead as a human being who was going through life just like you and I.
As we sat to schedule the delivery my son and Chris got to talking about candy because Halloween is on the horizon. They both agreed that Kit Kats were by far the candy to dig for in the bag.
After we made the purchase and scheduled delivery my son and I ran some other errands. Together we decided to put together a Kit Kat Halloween pumpkin for Chris to thank him for his patience and diligence in this process of finding the princess her mattress with no pea!
My son ran in to deliver the plastic pumpkin filled with Kit Kats and a thank you card.
I was of course checking email in the car when Chris came out with tears in his eyes to say thank you.
At that very moment I felt my vibration soar.
We can walk around in a dark cloud our whole lives. We can focus on the negative in our life’s, worry about the future, feel like we’re not enough but that’s not going to bring us happiness.
If we truly want a ‘sweet life’ we need to change our thoughts and the only way to do that is to first begin to raise our vibration.
That means, do what makes your heart smile.
For some that’s communing with nature, playing or listening to music, praying, drawing, painting or writing. For others-like myself-it’s doing something kind for someone else.
Chris is a regular guy like you and I and I bet that there haven’t been too many times when someone noticed his effort and said thank you. That small, random act of kindness not only raised his vibration but also my own and my sons!
In this crazy world that we live in today with all of our crazy negative thoughts, perhaps we could take a few moments every day to just simply raise our vibrations.
If we all did that only a few times a day I wonder what we’d begin attracting to us.
I’m not a gambling kinda girl, but I’m willing to bet that life would get whole lot sweeter!
Go ahead, take a bite out of the sweet life and raise your vibration, I dare you!
Lots of Love & Tons of Light,
