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 🙂

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!
