“When the Student is Ready, the Teacher will Appear”

4.16.14 Teacher will AppearI may have mentioned my ” inspiring quotes board” to you in the past; it started out with the intention of being a vision board but soon was instead covered by positive, law of attraction quotes that brought me cheer and has been that way for 5 years now.

One of the quotes I still have pinned up on this 3′ x 4′ cork board of mine is, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”  This quote has special significance for me.  While laying in bed one night a few years ago, letting my eyes dart where ever they may on the board that hung on the wall next to my bed, reading the quotes by the light of my bedside lamp, I came to this particular quote, which I had read numerous times before, but found it to suddenly have a completely new meaning to me.

I’ll never forget it because reading this quote that time actually made me stop in my tracks and perked my head up, physically and mentally.

While I had always interpreted myself as the student waiting for guidance from someone who would have something to teach me along my life path, this time when I read the quote I realized I was both the student AND the teacher.

I have always loved school and I enjoy being a student learning from those who have information to share with me, but at that time in my life, I was trying to figure out what I was going to “do with myself,” what career I would pursue, and it was a big decision that was stressing me out.

Reading, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear” that night, I felt I was given a sign of Magicality that I should become a teacher, that I WAS a teacher.  I interpreted the quote to mean that when I was ready, the teacher in me would appear to me; I would recognize the teaching profession to be the profession I was meant to enter.

Just thinking about this now gives me chills–it was such an epiphany-type of moment that I will never forget the feelings and thoughts it evoked in me…and still does.

A couple days ago was the first time I have substituted in over a year and it was wonderful. Though there have been many times I have questioned the decision to become a teacher, and been resistant to pursuing a teaching job even with my teacher certification completed, whenever I am working in a school, all those feelings of love and energy fill me up and express to me that I am where I am supposed to be, I should accept it and have faith that it will be better than I hope it will be.

We’ll see where this all takes me–I am still open to the signs of Magicality as they enter my path and open to the information that the “teachers” I meet in my life have to share with me–but for now, I feel more confident and excited about pursuing a full time teaching position.

I am curious to hear what your interpretation was of this quote when you first read it.  Does it mean something different to you?

Here’s to being ready when the right teachers appear in our lives!

The Law of Attraction & Noticing Coincidental Coincidences

2.10.14 Coincidence

Did you ever think of a long lost friend and then their name comes up in conversation or they reach out to you?  Or maybe you had a thought about one of your favorite television shows and then all of a sudden that exact episode is airing on TV?

These are just some examples of coincidental coincidences.  Things that happen in your life that you may chalk up to be a coincidence but in reality it is presenting itself to you as a manifestation of your own thoughts.

Pay attention to this because it proves to you that you are always attracting your thoughts into your life.  This can happen for small or large coincidences, as the law of attraction is always working.

Something you may perceive as negative may happen and the moment it does, the thoughts that attracted it to you comes to your surface.  You realize that you got exactly what you were thinking about.  This should remind you to be careful of what you are thinking about as the law of attraction is always working.

Like if you are nervous about failing a test and worrying about it, you are actually attracting the act of failure into your life.  Then when you get your grade back and see the failing grade, you may say to yourself, “Man, I knew that was going to happen!!!”

Does this sound familiar in other areas of your life?  Saying, “I knew that was going to happen!”?  Well, you knew because unintentionally you drew that into your life with your very own thoughts.

I remember when I first started dating my husband.  I was only practicing the law of attraction for about a year at that time and because I am so passionate about it, I tell everyone I meet how to harness their power.

It’s not an easy subject to approach with some people because ultimately you have to be willing to hear about it when the time is right for you.

So I happened to be at a bar with my new guy and I remember it like it was yesterday.  Someone had walked in and he leaned in and told me how strange it was that this person just walked in.  He said that he had just thought about her the other day and hadn’t seen her in years.

I looked at him, with eyes wide open and a huge smile on my face and proclaimed, “That’s the law of attraction!”  We went outside for a more private conversation where I explained how his thoughts attracted this into his life.

I knew from that moment on, that he was now a believer.  You can ask him (and one day I promise I will have him write a guest post) how his life dramatically changed for the better from that point on.

Start noticing the coincidental coincidences in your life as proof that your thoughts attract things into your life.  As you notice this happen more and more, you will begin to think more positively about your power.

You will begin to attract more things into your life.  And as you think more positively, you will start seeing bigger and better things come into your life as your thoughts will be in true vibration with the law of attraction.

Until next time, Have a Magical Day!

With Love xoxo 🙂

 

Follow the Signs of Magicality to Attract the Life You Didn’t Know You Could Have

12.4.13 Sign of Magicality

Have you even been doing something totally mundane and have a very meaningful realization?  This happened to me recently.  I was brushing my teeth and was suddenly struck with an amazing Magicality epiphany!

Before my son was born, my husband and I were seriously considering moving to Montana.  We were just going to pick up and go and talked about building a little cabin in a random small town.  It was a cool thought but when we found out I was pregnant, that plan quickly changed.

When Bo, our son, was 9 months old, we moved from where we were living in Nevada to New York, to be closer to my family and for Jake to take the test to become a firefighter in the FDNY.  The timing of this move was pivotal because this would be the last test that Jake would be within the age requirements to take and it was a dream of Jake’s to become firefighter.  So that, coupled with the desire to be closer to my family, had us selling everything that couldn’t fit into our two cars and making a cross-country road trip from Nevada to New York City.

It was amazing to see Jake fulfill his dream and graduate Salutatorian from the FDNY Fire Academy after working so hard to achieve his goal.  I was, and still am, insanely proud of him and his accomplishments and know he is fulfilling his life’s purpose.

Although there are many incredible signs of Magicality throughout me and Jake’s ten year journey of being together, the universe really aligned in order to fulfill Jake’s dream and, in the process, provide our family with the most happiness and security.

But, it wasn’t until recently that I was able to see the major source of Magicality in Jake becoming a Firefighter…it was my son!  If we hadn’t have had Bo when we did, we probably wouldn’t have moved to NY in time for Jake to take the test, if we had moved there at all, and Jake would probably not be working his dream job today.

We moved at exactly the right time, exactly when was right for us, by following the signs of Magicality.  There were too many signs pointing us in the direction we needed to go to ignore them.  And, I’m grateful we were both open to experiencing the many changes that came along with following them.

So, you never know where you are going to end up in your life’s journey and who will play a vital role in fulfilling your dreams.  Be open to the possibilities that arise throughout your life because following their lead may just land you on your ultimate life path.

Here’s to much awareness of the signs of Magicality in your life; it’s never too late to notice and be grateful for them!

The First Thanksgiving…an Authentic Example of the Law of Attraction

11.27.13 Exude Gratitude

So tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a special day that has often times, unfortunately, been usurped by gluttony, followed by naps, and the dread of relatives you would rather not be stuck with all afternoon. Does this sound familiar? Is this what your Thanksgiving has become? I hope not because the true essence of the holiday has such positive, grateful roots, it is a shame to grow disconnected from them.

When is the last time you’ve thought about the story of the Pilgrims and their first meeting with the Native Americans?  Probably not since you were in elementary school building a diorama about it or creating an Indian headdress.

If you read about the Pilgrims, and the journey they endured and their mindsets throughout it, it is clear their unwavering faith in god (and/or the universe) is how they were able to turn a very distressing situation into a more bearable and eventually historically important experience.

After every “negative” circumstance they were presented with, a positive outcome revealed itself—after rough seas battered their ship to almost destruction, they were able to make repairs because they “happened” to have exactly what they needed; after losing much of their party to death throughout the winter, and the survivors on the verge of starvation, friendly Indians unexpectedly welcomed them and taught them how to cultivate the land.

These were no freak coincidences; it was many people being in the same energy alignment with each other and the universe at the same time.  There was no element of competition involved.  It was blind faith in the Laissez-Faire sense, that got them through, followed by all-encompassing gratitude.

The Pilgrims meeting Squanto, a friendly native who had earlier been captured by the English, thereby eventually learning to speak the English language and understanding the culture, is an amazing example of Magicality itself!  Had it not been for Squanto, and the love that he exuded by teaching the Pilgrims how to live off of the land, the Pilgrims may have been no more.

Abundant in food, abundant in love and appreciation, having the right people in your life at the right time, having faith and not giving up at the sight of negative tides, are the lessons that should be taken away from the First Thanksgiving.

Make Thanksgiving Day your NEW New Year’s Day—don’t wait till January 1st! Make a resolution to be thankful everyday, to not let negativity sink its dirty teeth into you and to share the great things you have to offer with those around you and the rest of the world!

And tomorrow, when you say grace, eyes closed, sitting before your friends and relatives and a table full of food, take a minute to be grateful for that inspiring First Thanksgiving.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving full of all kinds of abundance!

Coupons and the Law of Attraction

10.23.13 Manifesting Coupons

Have you ever gotten a coupon in the mail for a store you were planning on spending a lot of money in soon or for a restaurant that you had a date night reservation already set up for?  Don’t brush aside those coincidences—they are signs of Magicality and they are meant to be noticed, made use of, and appreciated!

When you set the intention, the universe will grant your wish, whether it be small or large.  Often, it is the small stuff that crosses our paths most frequently. Though those small signs of Magicality can be easily overlooked, refuse to write them off, refuse to talk them down into nothings because they are most definitely somethings!

As seen on the Home Depot

When my husband and I bought our first house, we knew we were going to be doing some renovations and would be spending a lot of money at the Home Depot.  Being that we’d had a Home Depot credit card for many years, and it was always in good standing, we would every so often receive promo coupons in the mail: 12 months no interest, 18 months no interest, and, once in a blue moon, 24 months no interest.

We, my husband and I both, set the intention of receiving a 24 months no interest coupon that we could make use of after we closed on the house. My husband, being contractor, set to making a meticulous list of materials so that we could buy everything at once on the promo we knew we would attract.

Low and behold, what should come in the mail a couple weeks before we close on our house, with an expiration date a couple weeks after our closing, but a Home Depot, 24 months, no interest promo coupon!  I was so elated and grateful and at times simply stunned, that I left the coupon out, stuck on a kitchen cabinet door, so that I could be constantly reminded, every time I looked at it, of the power of intention, the power of the law of attraction, and the power of Magicality!

So anytime you get a coupon in the mail for something you like to buy or for somewhere you like to shop, know that it has come into your life for a reason.  You probably called it into being, and the universe abides.

So now that you are aware of this power of yours, test it out, practice a bit at attracting just the right coupon to you.  But awareness is the key because you may get what you are asking for from an unexpected source; the coupon may not come in the mail, it just might be sent home in your child’s folder from the PTA at school…you never know…so keep sharp, act on the opportunities that arise, and stay grateful.

Happy manifesting!
