The Importance of Addressing Limiting Beliefs in Order to Attract Your Desires

4.2.14 Limiting BeliefsHave you ever wanted something so badly—to hit a home run, to win that certain prize at a raffle, to attract more clients at work—but 9 times of out 10 you don’t get what you hope for? Even when you used visualization to FEEL what it is like to have those things already, and you imagine and SPEAK as if they are already true facts, why are your wishes still not fulfilled most of the time?

The reason is because you don’t truly BELIEVE you can have, or deserve, or can be what you are aiming for. It is your belief system that gets in the way of your goals.  Essentially, you are TELLING the Universe what you want while exuding an energy that is contradictory.

Feeling is the language of the soul, so if you have any doubts about accomplishing your ultimate goals, those doubts will be expressed in your feelings, or subconscious beliefs. Those limiting beliefs you have will affect your end result, which will probably be you not getting what you want.

Your subconscious limiting beliefs will affect your feelings, which will then affect your actions. While dreaming about your ideal end result is great, if you don’t take proactive steps toward attaining your goals and fulfilling your desires, you are preventing positive outcomes for yourself.  But, if your heart really doesn’t believe you can attain what you want, your actions will be full of trepidation, fear, negativity, and dubiousness.

To address your negative, limiting beliefs such as, “I never win anything,” or “I can never get ahead,” or “There’s no way I can do this,” do some tapping to help clear those negative beliefs and fears and replace them with a new, positive perspective or try using a negativity analysis to address your lack of belief in yourself.

In the meantime, keep working on honing your awareness skills and acting on the signs of Magicality that present themselves to you in the form of sudden opportunities, “coincidental” meetings or new introductions, or internal guidance from within yourself.

We believe in you…it’s time you start really believing in yourself!

Here’s to creating UNlimited, positive beliefs!

 

 

Instead of Fear Leading You, Follow a Life of Faith

3.31.14 Field with beautful purple sky

Fear gives us what we don’t want and faith gives us what we do want in life. But often, we are driven by fear. That is a huge component of why we don’t get what we think we are asking for in our thoughts.

Maybe you have a business venture you want to go after but you’re afraid of leaving your current job. Maybe you want to take a class but are afraid of failure. Maybe you want to skydive but are afraid of your parachute not opening. Whatever the case may be for you…fear is holding you back.

So how do you push fear aside??

Great question! The only true way to do so is with Faith. Faith opens up doors for you where there was once only walls. Faith will move mountains to make things happen. Faith is your answer!

I just watched the movie Jobs about the life of Steve Jobs. He always had undeniable faith. Faith in himself and faith in the products he created. He knew that Apple would be a success. He didn’t love a fear-led life. He led a faith-led life.

Start believing in the universe fully and whole-heatedly. Know that when you ask for something that you will receive it. Know that fear is ego-driven and made up completely. For the most part, it is irrational thoughts.

If fear weren’t irrational, why would the #1 fear be public speaking?

Embrace your faith today and watch as your world begins to change. You’ll begin to do things that fear once held you back from doing. And it will be Amazing!! Trust that.

Trust the universe and most importantly trust in yourself.

Until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo

Although Sometimes Not Easy, You Can & Will Get Through

3.17.14 Bird coming through clouds

Last week I discussed some struggles that recently happened for me in my life. Today I wanted to share a more specific story with you. Before I gave birth I had planned on breastfeeding my little one until he was a year old. I had it all planned.

In my head, it wouldn’t hurt as badly as people said it would. In my head, I would be a natural at it. In my head, it would come so easily. Notice…these were all things in my head.

I guess deep down subconsciously I didn’t believe these surface thoughts I had floating in my head, because from the moment he was born none of those things were true.

It was a bit painful, unnatural and not at all easy.

But I decided to ignore these feelings and persevere. The lactation consultant at the hospital was super nice and showed me a football position that I would continue on doing for the next several weeks by myself.

Then at my 2 week checkup with my pediatrician, he told us although our son was perfectly healthy (thank God!), he hadn’t reached his original birth weight (apparently babies lose a bunch of weight within days after being born). So the Dr basically said we had to go to a lactation support group to test out my milk supply.

This happened to be the week of Thanksgiving and really felt so devastating. So to get our baby ready and go to the support group, it ended up taking several hours. While there, I was taught better latching and holding techniques, which I was truly grateful for. But to my dismay, I was put on a very demanding feeding and pumping schedule.

In addition I was told to take fenugreek and blessed thistle to help increase my supply.  Then I had to attend a few more of these packed filled sessions that took hours from our day for those several weeks.

At so many points I wanted to give up.  Especially when my pump broke (yes that happened twice) and when the blessed thistle made me violently ill amongst a million other reasons. But I knew deep down that I had the universe–God on my side. I kept telling myself that I would get through this and that my baby would gain weight.

So sure enough at his 1 month checkup the Dr was very pleased with his weight gain and told us to keep doing what we were doing.

So I went home and decided to listen to inspiration–and I stopped pumping and started feeding my boy when he “asked” for it. He ate–a lot! This became very demanding as well but I held on for the ride.

I swore at 2 months that I would switch to formula but I wanted to prove I could sustain my son and help him increase his weight. Sure enough at his 2 month checkup he was thriving!  And something told me to keep at it.  So I listened to inspiration and kept nursing my son.

So now 2 months later I am still exclusively nursing and some days I toy with idea of switching to formula.

I’m not sure how long I will be able to last but I take it day by day. I removed the set time frames of “1 year” from myself and just go with the flow, as wavy as the flow may be at times.

Life will throw you curve balls and the unexpected. You may think you have it all figured out, but something in your subconscious comes to life and sends you for a loop.

Know that the universe will send you inspiration.  You just have to be open to receiving it.  Remember to listen.

Until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo

 

P.S.  For those of you celebrating, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! May you experience the luck of the Irish! 😉

How Becoming More Aware of Your Body Will Help You Attract What You Want

3.12.14 Body AwarenessHave you ever noticed how your body feels when you are watching a suspenseful or scary movie?  When I stop and tune into my body when I am watching a scary movie or a fight scene that I have to look away from, the muscles in my whole body are often clenched and tense; I am not in a relaxed, comfortable state.

What about when you are replaying in your mind a confrontation you may have had with a someone that you don’t see eye to eye with, have you ever taken notice of the way your body feels when you are saying all those negative, angry things in your head over and over?  If you haven’t, I suggest you try it.  It’s amazing what you will learn about the connection between your mind and body.

I first learned the importance of tuning into my body and being in the moment while reading The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle.  I was living in my old house at the time and, I kid you not, literally ever time, while laying in bed at night, when I would remember to tune into my body so that I could make sure it was relaxed, I would always hear the train that ran past our neighborhood about half a mile away, no matter what time of night it was.

Once it past the, “That’s a weird coincidence” state after this happened a hand full of times, I actually got to the point of expecting to hear the train as soon as I released all the tension I may have been holding in my body, tension I often had no idea was even there till I really took the time to check in with myself and see.  The train became a cool Sign of Magicality for me that I was really present, in the moment at that time, and I was grateful for and enjoyed its reminder.

Part of being able to attract what you want is being in the moment; when you are living in the past or wishing for the future, you are pushing things away from you.  Not being in the moment means you are ungrateful for the place you are in right now and that you have lost touch with yourself and your greater source.  You will not be able to attract your desires if you are not appreciative of the now and if you are disconnected from your body, your soul.

By taking a moment to really BE in your BODY, to let it speak to you by showing you what is going on with it—the pains, the tense muscles, your posture, whatever it is it has to share with you, you are making a conscious effort to reconnect with the Universe and it is when that connection is strong that the magic happens.

Start practicing taking a moment to stop, every so often, and see what is going on with your body.  Your body will instantly react to your thoughts and emotions, and vice versa…and, the Universe will instantly react to all of it!  So, take a deep breath, relax your body, flip your magnet so it is smiling and you will attract your desires!

Here’s to raising our awareness and reaping the benefits!

Getting Off the Law of Attraction Path Can Lead You Right Back Onto It

3.10.14 Roads merging together

Happy Monday readers!! Have you ever had a moment in life that put you off track? Did it seem like you wouldn’t be able to pick yourself up, but yet you found yourself back on your journey and path to enlightenment?

Well I for sure have…plenty of times in my journey so far and today I wanted to share one of these monumental times with you.

As you may or may not know, I had my first child in November (it’s a BOY!) and am truly blessed with this little miracle.

As I write this post I am looking down on him sleeping on me and he has the most precious face (sorry for the cheesy moment). What I want to share with you today is that having a child completely side-tracked me in my law of attraction and Magicality skills.

From the days leading up to his birth I had gotten hardly any sleep. Then from the moment I was in labor, he was born and now 4 months later, I still am a sleep deprived “mombie”.

3.10.14 mombie

I am not sure if it is the sleep deprivation, the shock of being a new parent, the struggles with a newborn or perhaps a combination of all of these things that pushed me off my path, but I can recognize that I had been off for quite some while.

My Magicality Magnet for sure was flipped down more times than I would like to admit. There were plenty of times that I reached out to my Magicality Buddy, my friends, family…anyone that could help make sense of things for me.

In my head, logically I knew that my thoughts were contradicting what I want to really attract in life. But for some reason, it wasn’t an easy task to switch my thoughts back to positive.

So after several months of tapping and doing negativity analyses, I can finally say I feel back in tune with the law or attraction.

I can say that although back in tune, I still feel I need a tune-up and that it will take my mental strength and perseverance to be where I was before I gave birth.

But every day is a new opportunity to flip your magnet….in fact every moment is. If you find yourself out of sorts like I was, please know that this is normal. Know that you will get back on track and that this is just a test of your faith. A magicality hiccup for you. All hiccups come to an end….it just may take some ‘salt on your tongue, loads of water or even a good scare’ to get it to stop.

I guess you need to go through rough patches to truly appreciate the greatness that life really has to offer. The world is filled with opposites and this is just one of those instances you have to live through.

And believe me…you will always come out stronger on the other side.

So until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo

Law of Attraction Challenge #10: Perform a Negativity Analysis This Week

3.6.14 Challenge 10

This week, and last, Rayna wrote posts explaining how to do a Negativity Analysis.  Now we want you to try it!

Take some time this week, when you find yourself stressed about something or your mood turning sour–your Magnet essentially flipping–to ask yourself what it is that is truly bothering you, give a detailed description of the negative emotion involved and confront it, recognizing that it is there, accepting it and allowing it to dissolve.

For more information as to how to do this, check out Rayna’s detailed posts about performing a Negativity Analysis:

Confronting Your Negative Emotions to Attract Better Things Into Your Life: Part 1

Confronting Your Negative Emotions to Attract Better Things Into Your Life: Part 2

Let us know how it goes!  Good Luck!

Attract Inspiration and Allow Yourself to BE Inspired!

3.5.14 Attract InspirationHave you ever been reading and had such powerfully inspiring thought pop in your head that you had to write it down because you knew you wouldn’t remember the wording the same exact way, or the feeling it evoked at the time, if you remember it at all days from then?

While reading Noah St. John’s book, The Book of Afformations: Discovering the Missing Piece to Abundant Health, Wealth, Love and Happiness, I was suddenly hit with this realization, this exact phrase that quickly scribbled down, “I just want to be inspired.  That’s what I want in life.  That is what makes me feel good, excites and thrills me, and fills me with hope and energy.”

As seen on Wolfepereire...

Realizing this literally opened my eyes and mind, in that exact moment, in a totally different way.  It was like I just finally understood what I need to do.  I need to follow my inspirations, do what makes me feel inspired, and the rest will just fall into place.  I felt it was the truth; a truth I didn’t know existed in me before.  And I believe it is the truth for ALL of us!!

Inspiration drives your inner spirit; it puts you on the path towards your life’s purpose; it keeps your energy up and entices your feet to keep moving toward the goal of your soul—whether you know what that is or not.  The more you allow yourself to be inspired, the clearer your life’s purpose will become.

Laissez Faire; set the intention to be constantly flooded with inspiration, let go of worrying about the “how’s,” “what’s,” “when’s,” and “why’s” and open your inspiration flood gates!

Allow yourself to be inspired!  Love this feeling and you will attract more inspiration to you—an inspiring person or conversation, and inspiring book or seminar, an inspiring thought or image.  Just be inspired!

Here’s to being flooded by inspiration!

Law of Attraction Challenge #9: Give Back in Some Form This Week

2.27.2014 Challenge 9When you read the title of this week’s Law of Attraction Challenge, what comes to mind?  What pops into your head as a way of “giving back?”

Is it a monetary donation?  Is it volunteering your time?  Is it doing something nice for someone that will be surprised?  Is it just being in the moment and spending time with the ones you love, maybe the ones who have been missing you and will appreciate their special time with you?

Well, all of these are possibilities!  Giving back could mean anything!

The purpose of this LOA Challenge is the guide you to be consciously aware of making a decision to do something that will benefit someone else AND make you feel good in turn.  The attraction cycle will keep spinning, surrounding all of those involved with a positive aura and attracting more of the same–choose to be a part of that feel-good cycle!

Run with this idea!  Be creative!  “Challenge” yourself and share with us how you end up giving back!

Good luck and enjoy!

When Rancid Lemons Produce Delicious Lemonade…

2.5.14 Sweet EndingsHave you ever had what you thought was a “bad” circumstance turn out to lead you to something incredibly positive and opportunistic?

It is easy to get caught up in the negative when you feel it is being piled on you and that you are starting to sink but when you refuse to be weighed down by situations that are testing your strength of positivity, often the greatest clarity and solutions to unanswered questions arise.

This happened in my life a few months ago.  My son was having terrible anxiety about getting on the bus in the morning—it was a new routine for him since we used to walk to school in our old house.  I have been using EFT tapping for about 5 years; it is a stress-relief tool that is a cousin of acupuncture, you tap on the end-points of the energy meridians on your body which helps to balance your energy system and bring you peace.  I was tapping with my son, which brought him some relief but I was apparently having trouble getting to the core issue that was causing him to still be upset at times.

As seen on Help Me Grow...

I decided to look into finding an EFT Practitioner that perhaps specialized in working with children; I thought it might be worth paying a professional to help him clear this problem once and for all.  I hated seeing him so distressed and upset.

While looking on the Internet, I found only two practitioners that fulfilled this request.  To my surprise, one was located in NY, close to where we live (it is not necessary to tap with someone in person—it can be done over the phone, or Skype as well).  While checking out her website, I came to a page that said she was holding a 3-Day EFT Workshop for FREE and I hadn’t missed it!  I was so incredibly excited!  I had never been to a workshop and been surrounded by other people who love tapping as much as I do!

It also said that attending this workshop would count toward some of the requirements for becoming an EFT practitioner, if you chose to do that.  While I have truly loved EFT since the first time I used it years ago, and it has made a remarkable difference in my life that I am incredibly grateful for, I had never really allowed myself to seriously consider being a practitioner…until now.

In the end, while my son’s anxiety wasn’t a good thing, I am grateful for it because it has enabled me to pursue this passion of mine and it is turning out to be something that I am naturally good at.  I am almost done with all of the requirements to be a Certified EFT Practitioner! Plus, Bo’s anxiety seemed to melt away as well…icing on the Magicality cake!

Hitting a Home Run

As seen on EMSI…

So, when life throws you a curve ball, or hands you some rancid lemons, don’t assume it will be your third strike or that the lemons are “bad” and deserve to be thrown away, follow that swing through to the end cause it may turn out to be a home run that you hit, or the lemonade that quenches your thirsty soul like nothing else ever!

Here’s to bad pitches sent over the fence and surprisingly delicious lemonade made from rotten lemons!

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.

As seen on Marghanita...

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!
