    Hi everyone,

    Not sure where to start so hope I can express myself clearly and maybe with others' input we can expand on this. I'm interested in people's thoughts/ experience with meditation, manifesting, gratitude & the law of attraction. I've recently started using the Smiling Mind app to meditate when going to sleep and sometimes when feeling a little anxious, like tonight. It is something i thought i could never do as my mind rarely stops, however, with persistence, I find I enjoy it. I guess i tend to have a negative mindset which I am determined to change.I always felt uneasy about thinking positive things as i thought i would jinx myself, and that whenever I made a positive comment or felt happy it would go wrong or something negative would happen. So i refrained from allowing myself to be too happy, I guess to 'protect' myself. Recently i have been feeling happier, stronger, expressing gratitude and taking note of when things have come to me when i needed them. Coincidence, or answers to what i put out to the Universe? I like to think the latter. A work colleague one day told me to manifest something i wanted, put it out to the universe , so I'm trying. Example, recently we needed to measure the floor space at reception so we could calculate how many people we could have in at one time. I needed a tape measure, which i did not have. At that moment our handyman walked into the office. Guess what he had? I am getting into the habit of practising positive thinking instead of thinking/expecting negatives. If something 'negative' does crop up, it can be dealt with, it's not the end of the world. I look for the positive in every negative situation. I am becoming more aware of being grateful for little things, things like getting a good car park at work, a warn cosy bed, a tidy house. I feel when i am expressing gratitude I am putting positive thoughts out into the universe and I notice more positives instead of focusing on negatives. Late last week we had internet issues at work and a colleague i found a little annoying. I've been feeling very drained, agitated, negative for a few days. This morning things were not running smoothly for me. A result of my negative mind perhaps? Little things became a big deal, my morning was crap. If i look back, it wasn't really an issue, i just did things in a different order which gave me more relax time this evening. The Law of Attraction, positive thoughts, positive experiences.

    What are your thoughts?

    Dear CMF

    I LOVE this stuff. Thank you for starting this thread!!!!

    Your story is great so far - do go on!

    I have experiences with the Law of Attraction. I ALWAYS drive into full carparks & chant out loud "There's always a park for the ________ family" & there it is. lol.

    I put together a Dream Folder about 10y ago, It's a set miracles to behold. We were dirt poor with a horrible criminal here pretending to be my H. I put in pictures of all the wonderful places on earth that I wanted to visit. I drew a BIG MAN full of love & laughter (I was hoping H would become this 'man' but God / The Universe had better plans for us). Horrible H scoffed at me publicly every chance he could about this Dream Folder & all else - I just kept on. I added pictures of lovely new kitchen appliances & furniture.
    On the title page I drew a Genie with a speech bubble that said "Your wish is my command".
    On the last page I wrote "And God has imagined it better than I ever could" - because hey why limit ourselves?

    All my children made their own Dream Folders with all sorts of wonderful electronic gadgets etc lol. I just realised that THIS WEEK I will be getting all the beautiful brand new whitegood appliances that were represented in that folder. Um wow. But I HAVE met the big man lol & it was NOT H - the opposite in EVERY way fact. I DID get & RECEIVE new furniture, in miraculous ways.

    Now I HAVE been to those beautiful places on earth that I put in my folder. Far more...

    I had to go through a period of destruction to get to here. I had NO ONE on my side but I had God.

    Even during one Court case as I was Praying hard "God you're over this situation..." and more, then in the huge big skylight of the Court room just as the Children's Barrister began to speak - IT LIT UP, the grey clouds passed & the sun shone brightly right on HIM. His voice was booming & the people behind us gasped at the sun & his voice & WORDS. He looked like Hagrid so was big & scary, but he spoke 100% for my side and even got told off by the Judge for speaking with such authority.
    I pushed through with strong Faith. I won. FAR BETTER than I could have ever imagined myself.

    About 30y ago I bought "Illusions" by Richard Bach and have gone through so many copies of this lol.

    Dr Joe Dispenza shows us so much more.. I just got 2 more of his books last week and I CANNOT believe that Joe Dispenza runs his practice 25 miles from "our" apartment in Seattle. Omg astounding.

    It works.
    Love EM

    I love hearing about other people's stories of law of attraction but the only advice I'd give is be very specific about what you'd like into your life- a few years ago I asked the universe for a husband. . And all I got was married men hitting on me. Which I definitely didn't want!😂

    I wanted a husband for myself; I'm not about to wreck someone else's marriage!

    Hi lovely ladies ,

    Thx for sharing your stories. I have had things happen but didn't realise until now that I had most likely manifested them as I know undetstand it better. I definitely realise now when the Universe is helping me. I will share more stories soon.

    thank-you so much for explaining your perception of positive thinking, gratitude and the law of attraction, it was greatly articulated!

    I'm so happy for you that you have been able to enjoy meditate. I was the same I would also say I hated it because it was boring. Little did we know.... Its hard work changing mindset and requires alot of work, EVERYDAY! I find that some days it comes natually, I have a spring in my step, feeling grateful for the little things like the sun and my local park, whereas other days I am irritable, annoyed by everything my partner does and definitely not feeling "grateful".

    Over time I have come to learn that I am a human, and its irrational for me to be happy and grateful all the time, to like everyone and be happy 24-7. Especially when around others that give off negative ungrateful vibes, it's so uncomfortable to be around, almost contagious. Do you believe you can be influenced by others moods?

    Life is an up and down rollercoaster and something being positive can mean acknowledging the "negative" but knowing it won't be forever. Maybe this is something you could try when you find yourself drained, irritable or just being a negative Nancy. Be kind to yourself, not all days are easy, you not suppose to be full of energy every day all day, you are human.

    It's nice to hear ecomama also drive into carparks wishing for spaces, as I do the same!

    Hi Leesy lou and welcome.

    I have been thinking about manifesting and thought of a few things. About years ago we bought our house and the auctioneer was dynamic. In fact, he was so entertaining that we continued to go to auctions just to watch him, it was great entertainment. I've always had an interest in real estate and said 'one day, i'm going to work for that man'. Years passed and i found myself having kids and going back to jobs that i kne how to do. I really wanted to work as a receptionist, in real estate, but didn't feel i could do something different. After my 3rd child I once again stayed home to raise her (on my own). I thought about what i wanted to do when i went back to work and decided that it was time to do something i really wanted to do, not just something i knew how to do. I applied for many receptionist/admin jobs with no luck. I decided top just send my resume to real estate companies and express my interest in part time work. I had a few knock backs and many non responses. One Saturday night i sent my resume to the one of the companies that i had always wanted to work for. I received a call from one of the offices and was invited to have a chat. Two months later i was offered a job as a receptionist, part time. 1 day became 2 days and i am now there 3 days a week and sometimes 4. I am doing what i always dreamed of doing , for a company i always wanted to work for and guess who the CEO is? Yep, the auctioneer we bought our house from 20 years ago!

    LOLOLOL! OH NO!

    Oh dear Bbydoll that's horrible but so funny too.

    Yes be articulate about what you want.

    Amanda Frances has the most enjoyable podcast about all this kinda stuff.... she's so funny. Well she makes me laugh anyway.

    After my post here about the car parks I decided to take some data this week. 35 out of 35 (yeah I drive around lots). EVEN in seemingly full car parks in a major shopping centre a few times. THERE is my car space right out the front - it's so funny.

    So why not put it 'out there' about EVERYTHING else?

    BELIEVING we deserve it is very important. Of course we do and for no other reason than we all deserve abundance.
    Knowing is necessary. I imagine it all already here.... as in the secret.

    When everyone on earth told me to give up on a specific set of Court battles finished recently, I couldn't.
    I Prayed to God and said "show me the way.... if I'm on the wrong track then push me off and if I'm on the RIGHT track then put the next helper in my path" and THE MOST perfect person to help me was literally put right in front of me - this happened so many times that my atheist neighbour became a "believer" lol. For 5y this happened.

    I got the house, the kids, the dog, cat and chickens lol. And kept my great job, it's awesome.

    Another critical part is to set our expectations of "it" and then get to work! The Universe or God doesn't expect us to sit on the lounge and eat hamburgers all day still 'expecting' - that looks more like overblown entitlement lol.

    The Universe does respond to our upbeat mood in kind. When I'm feeling crappy I watch Comedies on ABC 2, ABC iView, Netflix or YouTube, do Self-Compassion things (because we ALL need compassion) and put on my GROOVIEST music to dance and sing loudly to. I'm positive my neighbours LOVE my playlist! lol. I own a great loudspeaker for the garden ;-)

    So now that you ask, sure I'll share the song I'm listening to now lol Groove is in the Heart by Deee Lite.

    What are your upbeat tunes?

    Love and abundance!

    Hi CMF and everyone else

    I truly love this thread. Very soulful.

    I have people occasionally say to me 'You're obsessed with finding meaning in everything!' Guilty as charged. I find it's a great way of paying attention to detail and noticing all the amazing details that come our way. Whether it's a parking space, a handyman with a tape measure or the way the light magnificently enters into a room, these are the simple gifts many tend to miss. The ones that notice them look for the magic in life.

    A couple of my favourite magical experiences:

    • Some time ago went to see a life coach who's a natural at tuning into life. Bit of a spiritual dude. Some of his advice, 'With all the mud and s*** people have thrown at you over time, you need to start washing off the mud so you can be the person you want to be. Forgive yourself for not being true to yourself, so as to please others'. On the way home, I pulled up to a red light. I laughed as I looked over to a large billboard with a washing powder add on it. It read 'Wash off the mud'. I swear the universe has a sense of humour
    • Again, sitting in traffic watching the cars and trucks go past, I can recall thinking in the moment 'How do I make this transition in my life, of major change?' Was going through a bit of a phoenix phase. As soon as I'd had the thought, 2 long trucks went past, one behind the other. First one had written on it in large letters 'Phoenix' and the 2nd had the word (company name) 'Grace'. The following day, was reading something which advised that the best way to go through any phoenix like stage of transformation is with grace

    Needless to say, my favourite form of meditation involves meditating on inspiration. Also love meditating on the physical emotion of the body. So much attention given to mental emotion that the amazing forms of physical emotion are overlooked. The body is an incredible thing. Favourite physical emotion is 'chills', you know when something someone says 'rings true'.

    EM, I love Joe Dispenza. I have all his books and can't wait for him to produce the next. My all time favourite is 'Becoming Supernatural'. Pretty mind blowing stuff. He's such an empowering man.

    :)

    I love this thread, what a find!

    My experiences with the Law of Attraction include trying to attract coffee, fruit, or a hug every day. Small pieces of (often communal) joy that I can share with another person. Perhaps it's time to set the bar higher and attract acceptance into a Masters course?? Hmmm...

    Keep it up guys, sending kindness!

    Yes! Hi every body!

    I got chills reading your story of the Phoenix & with Grace most especially.

    My grandfather owned a boat when I was very young, it was named The Phoenix. He often told me the story & it became ingrained in me.

    Decades later when my children were completely devastated by the initial news of our family exploding & all that that meant to them. Don't worry that was THE BEST THING that could have ever happened for all of us in the end! I held them all sobbing their hearts out & didn't know what to say... then it came (yes the Universe has a sense of humour!) I said "Don't you worry, we are all devastated now but WE WILL RISE up out of the ashes like Phoenixes and SOAR so high then look down and say good riddance to bad rubbish" lol... I came undone a little at the end lol. But it was true.

    HOLD ON when "the worst" things happen to us..... It's usually VERY clear later on that that was the BEST thing to happen. Some times our lives need a huge explosion to blow everything up to get the truth out, to lay paths out of the rubble for our BEST LIFE.

    After NO ONE, on earth at least, would represent us with what we wanted... I kept seeking and I found the Angels that did, against all of their own understandings also.

    Being in line with the Highest Good is also important - for me anyway. My intentions are never to manipulate for my own benefit or take from others. They are to love & protect precious others & gain what is rightfully ours.

    ATM Mental HEALTH is my goal & it's a biggie! So many say you cannot recover from PTSD & the Anxiety I manifested as GAD.

    But I was also told by every Medical Professional I saw that a wheelchair was my only option, in place of this I held on to visions of my own mobility & God had bigger plans. I do indeed climb trees, cut branches down, move heavy wheelbarrows etc lol! Before I knew of 'my own observer' & it's capacity to heal me, I was activating this power.

    We ALL have this beautiful healing power. We can ALL be abundant in all spheres of our lives.

    There IS ENOUGH for everybody, including YOU & EVERYBODY YOU LOVE.
    It's not a competition. People don't have to go without for others to have more.

    Love EM

    wow, i am so glad to see others enjoying this thread. I am really into practising gratitude. It really came about when i realised how selfish one of my colleagues is. Everything is about what she get out of something. I am also learning about the law of attraction. I used to always have the mind set that i could not afford things. I did have years of living to the last cent, single mum, not working, raising kids etc. All my choice of course. I don't have expensive taste and am very happy with the simple things in life. Recently i celebrated my 50th birthday and decided i would treat myself. I had been doing extra hours at work and decoded i would buy myself a new winter coat (mine is about 25 years old) and some nice leather boots. Something I had wanted for years but always thought i couldn't afford. I found them on sale, a great buy so I spoiled myself and i feel amazing when i wear them. This has changed my mindset somewhat and i realise that i can buy good quality item when i need to. they will always last longer and of course i feel great so therefore i attract nice things. i'm not saying i now splurge on expensive things cos believe me i don but i realise that i can have good quality if i need. I work, I do extra hours whenever it is offered and i deserve it. I also do not cringe as much when my kids need something. I am using the law of attraction to attract things to me that i would normally become anxious over. i am more positive and trust in the universe.

    Over the last few years i have expressed my interest in taking on an extra day at work if it became available. i always cover for others if they are away and have even covered t other offices when needed. An extra day may be challenging with 3 kids but i know i can do it. Anyway a few months ago i received a text message on a Saturday morning asking if could work at one of our offices as my colleague had an emergency to tend to. I said yes but i would need to take my little miss with me. this was fine as it is a quite office and so i did it. It is 4 hours work but paid for 7 as there are penalty rates. i then offered to do this on a regular basis whenever needed. My manger agreed. It saves her trying to find a cover and it gives me my extra 'day'. myself and my colleague work it out amongst ourselves and it usually get 2 or 3 Saturdays a month. It is a blessing and being a Saturday does not impact on the family too much.

    i am really blessed.

    Dear CMF

    That's so beautiful that you were able to get yourself nice boots and a nice coat! How lovely. xxxx

    Great about the extra work too, wow!

    It was lovely to read "i am blessed" at the end of your post.

    I'm having a rough night and started a thread on it.

    It's challenging being a parent, being a single parent is, yeah, BIG! Congratulations on your parenting also. xxxx

    I might try to get an "early" night after I pick one children up from work at almost midnight and have an EARLY early Sunday start with another starting work early.

    "This too shall pass" and the sun will break through again tomorrow.

    I think I need some Dr Joe Dispenza to go to sleep to lol.

    Love EM

    Hi Em,

    Sorry to hear you had a rough night. Hope you are feeling better.

    I had a major manifesting situation today. I have been thinking of downsizing my car and have something in mind. I have visualising it alot - the colour, how it feels to drive it, how many klms it has, he price. This morning my sis in law called to tell me she is selling her car and would i like to buy it for my daughter. Well, it is the same car I am thinking of, the right price and good klms. I got excited, if my duaghter doesnt want it maybe i could buy for me and then sell mine. It was a whirlwind morning as they needed a decision today as they are buying a new one today. My daughter wasn't interested as it is not what she had in mind and still a year till she is 18. I was excited but unsure as it is not a colour i want. Also i would want to drive it and could not do that today. After mixed and confused emotions i told her we would let it go as it felt a bit rushed. I took a moment to think about it and believe that the stars did not align on this one. I feel that the opportunity came to me however it wasn't quite right at the moment, too rushed, but i cant believe that after the manifesting i have been doing she rang with the offer. WOW!

    Hello beautiful Moon,

    May I ask which books you have?

    I've only understood it recently and therefore am using it. I started using meditation when i go to bed, i am feeling calm of late and 'in control', or rather, understanding that i cannot control everything. when i work with my colleague i had the fall out with i place a 'bubble' around myself to protect myself from negative energy. When i notice I feel agitated or having negative thoughts i try to turn it around. i keep a gratitude diary and write 3 things every day. My sis in law has not sold the car and is advertising on line tonight. Asked again if i wanted it but i told her to advertise and and see how it goes. i'll keep checking in, the Universe will decide, i know it will.

    Thanks for joining this thread. I love your input.

    Hi everybody

    Wow I missed some posts - so I went back and read them all, wow and yay! We must have been writing at the same time lol. How wonderful to read all the massive achievements. I think it's a massive achievement to turn our thoughts around, probably the biggest for me now and over the years.

    In 'The Secret' and 'Further down the rabbit hole' there was an awesome man speaking alot. Dr Joe Dispenza.

    I bought "Becoming Supernatural" by Dr Joe on the weekend - thankyou for the referral.

    But for now I know I need to read "You are the Placebo" by him also.

    I've had some pretty damning news from the GP today, I kind of knew it was coming tbh.
    BUT I REALLY WANT TO OVERCOME THIS and be completely healed.
    I'm using Dr Joe's meditation CDs and replaying them when I sleep. Also reading the Placebo book.

    Do you know the WEIRDEST things are that:
    * last week I had assault dream (exH was punching me alot) and my stomach pain exponentially increased after that, then..
    * my eldest D was extremely abusive to me (looked evil like exH) and left in a whirlwind, then..
    * GP confirmed not good news today, then...
    * TONIGHT I received the weirdest text from the Electrical Store (I bought stacks last week from them) BUT IT HAD exH'S NAME ON IT.... not mine.

    What the bleep? These events connected to make a complete circle. Like they're all bound up into a ball in my stomach. I read "The Four Agreements" on Sunday and I can deflect the poison others shoot at me in words. Thank God it's only words now but they are powerful and so are our reactive thoughts to those words.

    I'll be straightening the stupid text out in the morning asap lol - but it all ties into what I need to RELEASE.

    The CDs take you into the 'quantum field' where it's 99.9% possibility!
    I'm feeling rugged atm. Dr Joe says not to live in denial over any issues so I'm glad I finally went to the Dr lol!

    I'm hoping to be able to form my vision of complete health, active-ness, joy and abundance.
    But in saying that I already know I need to word this in the PRESENT TENSE.

    So see you in the quantum field!

    Love EM

    Hi CMF and everyone

    Very exciting news all 'round. Life is truly magical at times.

    I like to think the exciting miraculous times tend to be when the Universe says 'Yeah, sure, here you go'. The challenging times are when it says 'No, sorry 'bout that. Can't do. There are other plans in store for you. Don't worry, they're good'. Admit, sometimes I'm a bit like a kid; wonder about the gifts it has in store, heading my way. They're rewards for the hard work put into managing the challenges in between.

    When it comes to upbeat tunes and songs (mentioned earlier on), I rediscovered an amazing song I'd never before put a lot of thought into until some months back. Might sound a bit nuts but if you imagine this song being sung to you by the powers that be (The Source, God, The Universe or whichever is preferred), it's a magical thing to listen to through such a perspective. Ready for it? 'Pure Imagination' from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As I say, I know, a little nuts but nonetheless have a listen from this perspective. You gotta admit, when what we imagine shows up (through the law of attraction/manifesting), sometimes it defies explanation :)

    Hi CMF....the one that introduced me to the concept was Ask and It Is Given...by Esther and Jerry Hicks. I also have their The Astonishing Power Of Your Emotions (which comes with a CD) . I have Esther's DVD s , " Ask and It Is Given" in which she and Jerry are interviewed as they explain how it all began. Another of Esther's DVDs are presentations on a cruise in front of an audience called Press The Launch Button.....and I have a CD that helps me sleep...Getting Into The Vortex..guided meditations. And of course the dvd of The Secret...

    some folk think it's all rubbish...but I reckon, hey if it works for you.......it certainly resonated with me from about the first paragraph I ever read!

    The Law of Vibration is extremely interesting. A lovely part of The Secret is where a lady who has cancer watched comedies ALL the time and with every task all day she said "Thankyou for my healing" or some such mantra.

    So in my understanding, and please I'd like complete understanding lol, so anyone else's feedback is welcome... :-))... those 2 points above in collaboration with being present in the quantum field of almost endless possibilities...

    In summary:
    1. It's about getting excited about beautiful things manifesting ie raising our vibrations in whatever way 'flicks our switches' to bring JOY and it may be different for each person... e.g. I watch comedies, love gardening and hugging my pets.
    2. Using present time as though I'm already enjoying those beautiful things my life ie visualisations, mantras, meditations are in the present tense...
    3. KNOWING these beautiful things are manifesting in a far bigger and better way than even my own imagination could ever imagine them... ie I visualise being in the quantum field and using my thoughts of e.g. healing, easy flow of positive energies including finances, abundance of love.... and put them out there with the end to my mantra / Prayers being something like "and I know YOU God have imagined it all far better than I, thankyou for the blessings I'm receiving now".

    I LOVE the Genie analogy which helped me at first.... Imagining a beautiful big Genie kindly saying "Your wish is my command".

    Being raised by extremely orthodox religious people I struggled for a long time (and still do a bit lol) with a perception of "greed", ONLY being of "service to others" and never being "selfish" etc... so in my transition period, I also put in my Prayers things like "if it be Your Will" and "as long as You think I am deserving" etc.

    I was afraid the Universe or God would not respond because of these preconceptions of MINE. And it was bumpy then in reflection of my own obstacles of thinking.

    Now I know God knows the pure intentions of my heart and it's important to me that whatever I have is for the Good of all. That's just me and fits well. I don't think it's necessary to practice the Laws.

    So now I skip that transition part lol.

    Love EM

    It was great to read everyone's stories in this thread, and so much positivity! It definitely put a smile on my face.

    I find mindfulness to be super helpful in helping me calm my anxiety. Especially the app 'Calm'. It has loads of great mediatations.

    I'm interested in you dream folder Em, it sounds like a great way to focus on what you want out of life. I might do something similar. Did you get the pictures out of a magazine or off the internet?

    Hi InhaleExhale

    OMG the Dream Folder works omg lol. I'm about to start a NEW Dream Folder or you can do a Visualisation Board or both lol - why not?

    I cut pictures out of Junk Mail. And drew pictures like the Genie. Then also printed out beautiful reminders from the internet from the Secret. My favourite reminder was the pic of the positive / negative emotions in twirly writing. I wrote and decorated favourite Attraction sayings...

    My Prayer at the end was an important part of the folder reading "And God has imagined it better than I ever could..."

    Going through it and touching it up from time to time was what held those thoughts in my head. Closer to say "kept me thinking the thoughts of receiving each and every thing".

    WITHOUT The folder it still all works. Years ago when I was beginning what was to become multiple endurance races for so many years thru Courts, my lawn mower, whipper snipper & washing machine were "vandalised". Plus something else lol I can't remember now.... but my faithful friend kept on at me to PRAY for those things. I had zero money for food even, Churches were providing food for us. EVERY cent was going to lawyers and barristers etc. I applied for every hardship application with the intent of Victory over evil.

    In less than 1 month (oh yeah my hot water system was also vandalised and broke).... ALL of those extremely expensive things CAME TO ME. Every item was near new. I took my damaged things to metal recyclers lol, they were used to seeing me there 😂🤣

    And this year I realised that I didn't say "ok you can stop now lol". I got another washing machine less than a year old. It's "surplus to our needs" atm because the other one IS A GEM. It will be housed with the right people.

    My new Dream Folder will be about abundance of love, health, mental wellbeing (that'll be a funny drawing lol), free flowing energy including finances in ALL sectors of my life.

    Would you be comfortable sharing what's going into your Dream Folder?

    Love EM

    Hi peeps

    I've had some quite shocking developments happen since I started my Dream Folder 2 (DF2), and some incredible ones too.

    I focused lots on DF2 on Sunday night.

    Then what happened this week: It appears my bf and I are no longer in a 'committed' long distance relationship.
    There goes the "future" I've been dreaming of for 5 years. I have to trust The Universe knows what it's doing lol, I had "surrounded by love" in DF2. I am already. I meant bf being here with me. But don't want to push the Universe if he's the wrong partner. So that's weird.

    My gardener offered to remove lantana for free!? So weird. I haven't even responded yet but I asked for a beautiful garden in DF2 so okay!

    Another focus was "wealth, prosperity and abundance" one of my adult children decided last week to do this with me. She put out that she wanted to get $3000 this week lol! She only works 3 days. BUT SHE DID GET $3000 this week. In fact she has another $8000+ coming. That's crazy lol.

    She needs a new car (2nd hand new lol) for her clients, so she's giving her car to my teenagers! They're rapt lol.

    I had unexpected income come in too. Nice!
    ALL of my children living here have too. One teen got $3000 unexpected tax return (he's still at school).

    Then my brother who has disabilities, decided to apply for NDIS funding a few weeks ago and I helped him do the app. He asked for $6000 for technology and got $19 000 granted this week!
    He asked one of my children and I to be paid advocates for him a few weeks ago, so this increases OUR INCOME even more.

    Then another adult child decided to ask my younger teens to help them with work and is paying the kids a great hourly rate.

    Wed: my new appliances were supposed to arrive. I was feeling quite low about bf.
    Then they were delayed a day lol. The fridge is even on backorder lol! = my low feelings.

    When the call came that they were arriving Thurs, I was just pleasant to the caller. Why not. I needed to raise my vibrations and it was hardly their fault - maybe lol.

    They're installed now and look lovely.
    I've cleaned out cupboards and had to rearrange stuff to allow it to work properly etc. It's been a busy week.

    I realized how much my bf lowered my mood and vibrations. I found out this week that my bp is high for the 1st time.

    I really need to add pages to DF2 more about a beautiful, healthy, abundant life.

    EM

    Hi ecomama

    Sounds like you are seriously tuned in. So much happening and coming your way. Amazing how being tuned in can connect us with the most natural aspects of who we are - the child that wonders, the child that wishes and the child that gets naturally excited about so much. Hoping your super natural abilities continue to bring about more magic for you.

    :)

    Hi therising

    You have such a soothing way of writing. Thankyou for saying that about me being seriously tuned in, everything "busy" around me with all the kids flying here and there etc, all sorts of demands like everyone else has.

    I just felt "what am I doing"? Everything seemed so out of my control esp with MH issues. I felt completely overwhelmed a couple of months ago, probably will many times in my future IDK lol, like everyone else.

    I HAD to change it up.

    There was little else I could do but CHANGE something, DO something, at least ONE thing differently. I've had to do many things differently with therapy. But things BEYOND the mainstream type therapy I'm getting.

    This was it. If the ONLY thing I do for myself to change things up, is to HOPE beyond my wildest imagination that things CAN and WILL improve, then that's it.

    Having the guided Meditations have been a savior lol. I began PART II of Dr Joe's Placebo book last night and the Meditation training is SO explicit. SO precise. So comprehensive beginning in detail about the TIMES to Meditate and the type of ROOM etc.

    My mental and physical health NEEDS the changes outlined in his book. I want to suppress certain aspects of my DNA and increase others.

    It will take discipline. Like it does for everybody else lol. I'll do the best I can.

    Hi all,

    Loving everyone's input here. I'm a little flat and trying to raise my vibration but struggling. I'm grateful, write in my gratitude diary but feel I'm just writing t h e same things.

    Any ideas on how I expand my gratitude and will doing so improve my law of attraction?

    Hi CMF!

    Remember 'The Law of Attraction' is working ALL the time, every time.
    Just knowing THIS helps me CHANGE IT UP.

    It's exactly the same as the 'The Law of Gravity'.
    It doesn't matter if a person is good or bad, they still fall off a building according to this Law.

    SO if we catch ourselves thinking or feeling a certain way - of low vibration, then we can do all sorts. I do this but you can do whatever you want lol; sit with those feelings, work out WHY I'm feeling that way (my breakup this week is a fine example - I've felt sad, alot, cried, felt depressed even), it's okay to have any feelings.

    I don't want to deny that I'm human lol. I try to talk to myself like my best friend would, and care for myself the same way. Herbal teas, hot baths.

    But I also DON'T want to wallow. Dwell too long. Bring myself further down with all that.

    I need EXTRA care in those times, so I take it and GIVE it to myself.

    I WANT to bring myself BACK to a higher plane. So I change my focus and change my activities.

    Last night I felt 'that' way. So I went inside and chopped up all these beautiful fruits for a huge fruit salad for myself. I watched 'The Secret' again on my phone as I imagined my life being totally abundant.

    - I imagined friends calling and planning FUN things with me,
    - I imagined gardening with my gardener and the JOY I feel making my garden beautiful,
    - I imagined wearing beautiful clothes & how GOOD I feel wearing them, right down to the shoes, jewelry etc.

    I set my sights on living in a BEAUTIFUL HOME with wonderful things around me.
    I became happier. I got excited.

    My life is not like that NOW, my life now is the residual effects of how I thought in the past.

    You don't have to think of the 'how' these things will come about, JUST INTEND IT ALL.
    Visualise.
    Be grateful for what you ALREADY HAVE.
    Expect.
    Receive.

    Things ARE changing here! Rapidly sometimes! The past week was SO CRAZY. We INTENDED It and it happened! Around $40 000 unexpected income to my family (brother and adult children included).

    Today I was busy early and bought a wonderful single garden chair lol! It's happening.

    The Universe is just waiting for you. It's ready to give.

    I'm grateful for YOU today CMF, beginning this thread of endless possibilities and BEAUTIFUL lives in the making.

    Love EM

    Hi positive energy peeps lol

    The saying... 'we teach best what we most need to learn' has been a deep thinking lessons for me the past 2 weeks. What a slamming 2 weeks. The most horrible things happened.

    SO I had to take more leave to deal. I am so grateful for my bosses!

    I'm still in the midst of dealing with those but the crises parts have passed I Pray.
    Now for the recovery time.
    Lots to organise and ughh lol... trying to be HAPPY to phone Victim's Services is quite a challenge! Plus other ughs to do. I've scheduled the ahem things in to my diary BEFORE a nice thing in the day. If I don't do this, then I procrastinate (I know thyself lol).

    I put out there about "friends" and wow none of my friends can cope atm.
    Then others came out of the woodwork, so the universe is responding beautifully.

    I want to put ACTUAL things in my Dream Folder No. 2. I couldn't think of any I was feeling too low... the emotion things are woven throughout but the THINGS that will help my life be happier I am now pulling in to form.

    I had held a picture of the exact kitchen cupboard I loved but was far too expensive (like $1000 too expensive lol) I found for $200 on special by accident lol while I was doing a favour for another person. I bought it. Now to put it together lol.

    Happy positive thoughts!

    Love EM
