Be Grateful for “Money In” No Matter What Its Form

3.26.14 Money InI adhere to a gluten free diet.  Aside from doing it for health reasons, I’ve come to discover that the elimination of gluten from my diet has improved my mood; I feel less depressed and experience less severe and frequent mood swings—essentially, I am able to control my magnet better and keep it smiling for much long periods of time.

Anyway, my dear friend, and original Magicality Buddy, Rayna, was gluten free for a while but she recently decided it was not the best lifestyle for her to live any longer.

One morning, I woke up to find three large boxes at my doorstep.  Knowing I hadn’t ordered anything, I was confused as to what they were about until my eyes met the letters of Magicality in each one, telling me to enjoy some “Money In,” and saw the gluten free goodies that were being passed on to me by my MB (Magicality Buddy).  It was like gluten free heaven and Christmas all rolled into one; I was so grateful and excited!

I am sharing this personal story with you because it is an excellent example of “Money In,” as Joe Vitale calls it.  Though it was not in “money” form, this gift had VALUE; not only were all the items expensive to buy, but the gift itself had special meaning—value—for me.

It is an amazing way to recognize things in your life for their value.  Everything has value—the savings coupon or discount, a gift received, the free tickets you win, spending time with loved ones, or even the unexpected help you receive—these all have value and deserve attention and gratitude.

An excellent way to show your gratitude is to reciprocate in some way—“Money Out” for you is “Money In” for someone else.  We are all connected.  There is no vacuum in the system; when you let go of something, maybe money in this case, it will soon be replaced by something else—“Money back in”—in some form.

“Value In” and “Value Out” is always happening and it happens for everyone.  It’s a matter of being aware, noticing, accepting it, showing gratitude and reciprocating.  The moment you let fear enter the equation—fear of letting go of something because of the sense of lack, you immediate prevent the flow of attracting more “value” to you! Believe in abundance!

I am looking forward to surprising Rayna with a gratitude gift in return; I know whatever I send, and whenever it happens, it will be the right time for both of us and it will make both of our Magnets smile!

Here’s to much “Value In” for all of us!

Law of Attraction Challenge #5: Journal 5 Things That You Are Grateful For Every Day This Week

1.31.14 Gratitude

Gratitude is a HUGE part of Magicality and attracting things into your life.  Without gratitude, the whole process doesn’t work.  With gratitude, however, you are able to attract more and more things in your life to be grateful for.

One of the habits that I have developed over the years is journaling what I am grateful for.  I do this every day and at least 5 things a day.

As I journal, I think of what makes me truly grateful and I allow the feeling of gratitude to overcome me.  Even if it’s just for the air I breathe or the food on my table, I journal it.

You will always be able to find something every day to be thankful for.  This is why this week’s challenge is to Journal 5 Things That You Are Grateful for Every Day This Week.

It literally only takes a few moments every day to complete this exercise.  You can write it down using the traditional paper and pen method or perhaps use a computer or your phone.  If you have a smart phone there are so many apps for this.

I actually use an app called Gratitude Diary, which you can download for free as well to journal your gratitude.

Whatever way you choose, make it comfortable and work for you.  This should be something you enjoy doing.  Look at it as an opportunity to attract more into your life and remember to do it every day.

Please share your journey on how this challenge went in the below comments.

Until next time, Have a Magical Day!

With Love xoxo 🙂

Attracting Signs of Gratitude

1.29.14 Signs of GratitudeSo, how’s it been going lately?  Have you been honing your awareness skills?  Have you been able to notice Signs of Magicality in your life since Rayna and I have been guiding you on your Magicality journey the past few months?

Today I had a Sign of Magicality hit me so blindly in the face that I had to sit and immediately write about it so I could share it with you.

We recently invited our neighbors over for dinner; the kids all played together nicely while we hung out, waiting for our prime rib roast to finish cooking.  It was a snow day from school and I figured it would be a great time to make use of the roast I had in the freezer…it would warm my house up having the oven on for hours on this single digit temperature day.

The evening was great: good food, many laughs, but most of all, good company.  The next day, I texted my neighbor thanking her a nice night and for the desert she brought over.  She thanked me back, saying it was a great meal and an overall awesome night.  My reply was, “We are grateful for awesome neighbors!” In this case, feeling grateful feels like an understatement, we love our neighbors so much.

I have Rhonda Byrne’s “The Secret Daily Teachings,” a gift from Rayna, on my nightstand.  Though it is a 365 Day calendar with inspirational pages you can peal off for each day, I have chosen not to tear them out, nor read them in order either.

Almost every day, I pick it up and open it to a random page…the place that my fingers poke into first is the page I feel I am supposed to read at that moment.

It just so happened that I was passing by this Daily Teachings calendar after I sent that text to my neighbor and decided to see what Rhonda had in store for me that day.

I opened to Day 64, which read, “We can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have.  In fact, if somebody was completely and utterly grateful for everything, they would never have to ask for anything, because it would be given to them before they even asked.  That is the power of Gratitude.”

Now, I don’t know about you, but I thought that was an amazing example of a Sign of Magicality, a sign of true gratitude!  I had, only moments before, expressed in words, and truly felt in my soul, the gratitude I feel for my wonderful neighbors and then opened to a Daily Teaching that talked about the Power of Gratitude! Amazing!

I hope you enjoy reading about these personal examples of Magicality that I like to share with you.  I hope you are able to use them to make connections to the signs in your life as well so that you can appreciate them and therefore attract more special instances of Magicality into your life!

Here’s to gratitude and attracting more things to be grateful for!

Stay Connected With Your Higher Source & You Will Attract Abundance

1.15.14 Stay ConnectedHave you ever felt that tinge of fear that you don’t have enough?  Not enough money? Not enough free time? Not enough appreciation for all that you do? Just plain out not enough?

As you may well know, abundance is a major aspect of the Law of Attraction—we are all one and therefore it makes no sense to be competitive because essentially we would be competing against ourselves.  There is no need to compete in the first place because there is already enough of everything to go around for us all.  We just have to acknowledge and live by this fact.

Sometimes however, even with our best efforts, for as much as we envision there being enough of whatever it is we desire, that interloper of lack slips into our consciousness.

Recently, I was watching the Disney movie Pocahontas with my daughter and it dawned on me how the Native Americans lived lives very in tune with the Law of Attraction.  They truly understood abundance and gratitude.  (Check out my blog post, The First Thanksgiving…An Authentic Example of the Law of Attraction, for more about this.)

They shared the land with their fellow man and animals; they didn’t claim the land to be their own, like the settlers did; they weren’t in competition with anyone, they just took what they needed and were grateful for what they were able to receive.

The Native Americans of years ago were also more connected with their higher source—to them, it was Mother Nature, to LOA people, it is the Universe…or whatever feels right for you.  This awareness and reverence of their higher source helped them to live spiritual lives, which in turn were filled with more meaning, passion and gratitude.

We have unfortunately lost this connection with our higher source in today’s society, for the most part, but it can stop with you.

It is up to you to tap into your intuition and be aware of all the signs of Magicality in your life.  It is up to you to choose whether you take advantage of the opportunities that arise in your life.  It is up to you to exude gratitude for the things that make your magnet smile.  And it is up to you to share what you have to offer with your fellow man, whether it be a smile, a dollar, or a helping hand, and erase competition from the equation.

We are all one from the same source.  Live as if you KNOW it is so and abundance will flow to you.

May all that you do bring abundance to us all!

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!
