The POWER of WORRY to Attract What You DON’T Want

4.9.14 Your Worries are Powerful

Have you ever noticed how when you worry about something happening to you, that’s usually what happens? Doesn’t that stink!? And, unfortunately, that’s usually what we notice the most—the things we didn’t want happening, happening—even though we are constantly attracting good circumstances to us all the time too.

Take it from me, “the worry queen,” worry does no good! While I have been a worrier most of my life, I finally learned the hard way how powerful my worrying can affect me…physically.

Getting dressed up club style, platform heels and all, for my best friend’s bachelorette party in NYC, I kept stressing about falling and breaking an ankle or something while wearing my heels; I’m not one to wear heels more than a few times a year and this was one of those occasions. I even stuffed into the pockets of my coat my flip flops, my more usual style of footwear, in case my feet were killing me and I had to change my shoes.

One of the girls that was with us grabbed me by the shoulders as were getting ready to leave for the club and said, “Mar, you are not allowed to stress tonight! You are here to enjoy yourself and that is what you are going to do. Everything is going to be fine!” I thanked her for the reminder that snapped me out of my negative state and ended up having a great time dancing the night away till 5 am…without falling or tripping once.

It wasn’t until we got home that my worry magnet brought my worries to life, like there was a delay in the universe’s delivery system.

While stepping out onto the balcony when we got back to the apartment, with my flip flops on at that point, oddly enough, I fell on the side of my ankle and come to find out the next day, after being encouraged by my husband to go to the ER, that I fractured my ankle in 3 places; my first broken bone ever.

At first I didn’t make the connection between my thoughts only hours prior to my broken ankle and its actual “breaking point,” but once it dawned on me, I realized how powerful my worrying had been in attracting exactly what I was worrying about, exactly what I DIDN’T want to happen!

So, let my painful, drawn out experience be a lesson to you—whatever you focus on, whether it be a positive or negative thing, you will eventually manifest it in your life. It may not be as clear or severe as a broken bone, but the sooner you pay attention to the way you think and feel and act and the way things play out in your life, the sooner you will realize how powerful you truly are. Like any great king or queen, it is important to not abuse your power so don’t let negativity rule your mind, heart and soul because its power can make or “break” you! Haha

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!

 

 

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!

Attract a Long Life With Positivity

2.26.14 Attract a Long LifeDo you know someone who is just always happy; always has a smile on their face and a matching one in their heart?  Do you know someone whom you can’t remember ever seeing angry, and no one else can remember ever seeing angry either?

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a surprise birthday party for my great-aunt who was turning 90 years old.  Aunt Ella is the most genuine example of a kind, happy soul you could ever wish to meet.  Just being around her makes you smile and inspires you to be a better person.

The invitation to Aunt Ella’s party asked, in lieu of gifts, that everyone write Aunt Ella a letter reminiscing about fond memories with her.

I started my letter to her saying that it was no coincidence that she has lived such a long, blessed life; her light, jovial spirit has been keeping her young for many years.  If you met her, you would never guess her to actually be 90 years old; her smiling face, ability to still get around well, and remarkable memory fool all those around her into believing she is many years younger than she actually is.

I am telling you about Aunt Ella because she is an excellent example of how filling each cell of your body with positivity all of your life—singing happy songs, speaking kind words and giggling lots, along with exuding love and acceptance of everyone you meet—does a body good, so to say.

So, keep your Magnet smiling.  Radiate out from your soul a sense of peace and contentment…and really feel it!  Live in the now and really enjoy yourself while doing so! Give exaggerated hugs to those you love, and to those you newly meet.  Look into people’s eyes and really listen to what they are saying, don’t just appear as if you are paying attention.

Life can be short; plenty of wonderful people die too soon.  But, then there are those who live so long and it makes you wonder if they have a special purpose.  Strive to be like Aunt Ella—inspire those around you to be the best, and happiest, they can be by practicing what you preach!

Here’s to living long and prosper!

Repent from Negativity, Embrace Positivity

2.12.2014 RepentHave you ever thought you understood a word, and thought it carried with it a negative connotation that turned you off to it, only to have someone offer you a completely different perspective and thereby change your viewpoint all together?

Have you ever heard or used the word “repentance” before?  You may have heard it used like, “Repent for your sins.”  Whenever I heard this word, I felt it evoked such a heavy sense of dread and guilt; it was not a positive word for me.

Everyone makes mistakes or “sins”—we are human, we aren’t perfect—but I disagree with the way this phrase makes me feel, as if I am a terrible person, doing more wrong than good, almost as if all of the “good” things I do go unnoticed or simply brushed aside.  I felt that “repenting” was doing nothing but focusing on all of the negative stuff until I heard a great sermon by the reverend at our church.

Reverend Martin explained to us that repentance can also mean a change of mind, or to turn away from something and turn to something else.  This definition spoke to me.

He encouraged us to “turn from the shadows and move toward the light;” he urged everyone to actually physically “get up” when you are in the shadows, when you are feeling despair and hopeless, and move into the light toward happiness.

I love this image and this new idea of repentance.  Anytime you change your state of being, anytime you flip your Magicality Magnet, you are repenting.  You are in control.  You can decide to alter anything in your life, whether it be your thoughts, your words or your actions.  You are changing the coarse of your life by moving away from the darkness, away from negativity, and stepping in the direction of positivity and light.  So opt to leave negativity behind and be surrounded by positive warmth and sunshine.

Here’s to repenting from negativity and embracing positivity!

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.

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!

Positivity Looks Good on You!

I came across this quote recently and it really spoke to me.

Do you know someone, or have you ever noticed someone, that is just always negative and actually has a puss on his or her face to match?  You know, those people that seem to have a perma-frown engraved on their faces—even when they do smile, it doesn’t seem to fit them because it’s so out of the norm?

This is because the thoughts that are usually flowing through their cells—the worries, the criticisms, the negative expectations—not only affect them internally (usually these people succumb to many dis-eases and other maladies) but externally also (their skin, their hair, their posture and their expressions).

1.1.14 Positivity Looks GoodYour thoughts clearly display themselves on your face and therefore influence your appearance.  When you are feeling good—thinking positive thoughts, feeling positive emotions—you will exude a positive vibration for everyone, and everything, around you to see and feel.

When this happens, you will encounter positive circumstances which will include other positive people and experiences…and the cycle continues.  This is the cycle you WANT, the cycle to continually strive to keep!  Positivity looks good on you and you will continue to attract more of the same!

Do you think it’s a coincidence that many of the “evil” characters in books and movies, especially children’s books and movies, are painted to be ugly?  No one wants to look like Cruella De Vil!  She acts crazy, is mean and self-centered and has the looks to prove it!

Me, I’d rather have sunbeams shine out of my face because of the positive thoughts I hold within me, wouldn’t you?  So, take notice of your body when your magnet is frowning.  Are your muscles clenched in anger or frustration?  Are your eyes slightly squinted and the corners of your mouth forming a taut frown?  Catch yourself when your mind starts to runaway train to Negative-ville.  Don’t end up like Cruella!

Here’s to you always looking lovely and your sunbeams shining blightly!

The Power of Apology in Living the Law of Attraction

11.6.13 Power of Apology

Have you ever observed small children navigate the social waters and occasionally bump heads with one another such as fighting over a toy and then casually giving each other a retaliation punch?

If so, were you also able to observe how the parent handled the situation? Most parents seem to immediately jump in and instruct their child to, “Say your sorry,” which is usually followed by the child saying it somewhat under his or her breath, without feeling or remorse.

Like children, we can all lose control of our magnet at times, I certainly do here and there, it happens, we’re all human, but it is important to make right what you may have done wrong.

The trick is being aware of the fact that you had a momentary lapse in sticking to your higher-self-path. As soon as you realize this, flip your magnet back the way it should be, back to its manifestation smile.  Then, reexamine the situation that made you lose your cool, that made your magnet teeter, and see if there is a way to rectify the negativity that you may have had a hand in.

The best, and most assertive way to do this is by simply apologizing to anyone you may have affected (like when it is bed time, and your patience are running low, and you snap at your kids and send then off to bed in a house full of tension energy).

Ask yourself if whatever made you step outside of living the Law of Attraction and back into the “it’s everyone else’s fault” world was really worth it….and if you really dig deeper, most of the time it isn’t the outside source that you blame for causing your break from Magicality in the heat of the moment, it really is something that is going on inside yourself.

Therefore, I think you may agree with me, that an apology is in order. (That’s when you hug your kids, look them in the eyes in the morning and tell them you love them; tell them that you apologize for losing control over your magnet and you are sorry for yelling. They will appreciate it, even if they are little, and will look to emulate the example you are setting)

Apologies are powerful because they signal to the universe that you are aware of your thoughts, emotions and actions; that even though you may make a mistake occasionally, you are quick to fix it–and hopefully learn from it.

Be grateful for your momentary magnet misdirection because it is a lesson to learn from, but be even more grateful for your noticing it and correcting it. And, don’t worry, your apologies won’t go unnoticed; the universe will send you signs of thanks as well…and be sure to thank it right back!

So, don’t fret when you make a wrong turn (and your magnet follows), just be sure to offer a heart-felt, sincere apology to all involved…universe and magnet included.

May all your apologies bring you much positivity in return!
