Magnetism is the Key to the Law of Attraction

With magnetism you can gain rapid success with the law of attraction. Attract money faster, attract your soulmate, attract the house of your dreams, travel the world and live a successful life with the right to use of magnetism.

One of the main reasons people fail to gain success with the law of attraction is that they have not learned the techniques of dynamic thought frequencies. You already understand that your thoughts create your reality but are you aware of how many thoughts you have in a single minutes? All these thoughts add up to strong frequency. The law of attraction responds to your overall thought frequency.

Let us just imagine that you wanted to attract a new car. While you may be hopeful most of your thoughts are probably going in the direction of you not having a car. If 90% of your thoughts are on the fact that you do not have a car you will continue to not have the car.

As you can see one of the secrets of magnetism is the ratio of thought in favor of your desires as opposed to those thoughts not in favor of your desires. Although it may seem simple to simply pretend, this is quite hard to do. Changing your thought patterns in favor of what you prefer can be very hard to do. And that is one reason so many will be unsuccessful with the law of attraction.

Magnetism uses this powerful dynamic thought processes to alter, expand and broadcast your thought frequencies. It is done in such a way that you trigger a strong momentum shifting your vibration so that what you want moves into alignment with you and the law of attraction to get you super fast results.

In this Secret Place Manifesting Ecourse you could learn the powerful techniques that trigger a strong vibration which influences the laws of attraction in your favor.

Used Cubicle Woes – 5 Organizing Tips For Your Tiny Workspace

Used Cubicle Woes - 5 Organizing Tips For  Your Tiny Workspace

Your desk, or cubicle, and what surrounds you is the vehicle for your work mojo. It’s the spot where genius is born, where you spend much of your everyday life. That’s why it’s important to organize it in the best way to, as they say, get those creative juices flowing. If you’re struggling to get the right ambiance inside your used cubicle, here are a few tips to organize your tiny workspace:

1. First thing’s first. Clean it. Those old, used cubicles can be bad enough as it is – cramped, stale, stuffy, boring, elbow-to-elbow to annoying coworkers – but when you start drowning in files and paperwork, your cubicle can seem like a whirlpool of burden that’s just too much to handle.

If you don’t remember what the desk looks like anymore, it might be time to start thinking of some cubicle detailing. You don’t want to hear it, but your used cubicles mess is embarrassing. Your boss wants you to clean it. Your coworkers (as annoying as they may be) want you to clean it. Deep down inside you want to clean it, too. It will help with your work and your sanity. But, as is the case with most cleaning jobs, where do you start? That much filth can be daunting.

Start with your desk. Throw old papers, stick-it notes, and stuff you don’t use anymore, away. Then wipe it down with some Windex. Once the desk is clean you’ll feel like you’ve actually done something. A clean desk will make you feel better immediately. After you get that out of the way, it will be easier to polish everything else off.

2. Decorate. This is not rocket science. It’s not like decorating your house. You don’t need an interior decorator, but it’s always better to make a nice environment that’s pleasant to work in. A nice photograph, calendar and a strategic plant can make a used office cubicle come alive. If you don’t have a window to peer out of, make sure have a soothing landscape shot. It will give you a momentary escape and will help relax your eyes, which comes in handy in those boring old used cubicles.

3. Personalize. Hang photographs of family, friends, or pets on the walls. Don’t overdo it, though. Nobody at work likes to see a family album spattered throughout your workspace. Too many pictures will just start to look like clutter anyway.

4. Make it funny. Humor is healthy on so many levels. Bring something into your workspace that you can laugh at. Hang up a funny picture, place funny quotes on the wall, or anything else. Your work space is much more enjoyable if there’s a sense of humor. Plus, people will think you’re cooler if you have funny stuff.

5. Motivation. We all need that extra push now and then. Post a goal, a picture of that place you’ll travel to once you get your bonus, or a motivational poster. Anything that will help you want to work harder will help the day-to-day grind. It will also make you look ambitious to your managers.

Reinvention is a Process, Not a Destination

Reinvention is a Process, Not a Destination

I had the privilege of speaking to a large group of unemployed professionals recently and the talk was centered around reinvention. The message I delivered to my audience resonated with them because I immediately opened up and shared my personal story – a story that closely mirrored their current situation. I talked about being laid off twice within one year (to no fault of my own) and the uncertainty I felt when I didn’t have a job. But despite those things, I looked at that time in my life as an opportunity to follow my dreams. From that point on I realized that we must adapt a mindset of renewal.

renew (v): to repeat so as to reaffirm; revive; to replenish; to bring into being again, reestablish; to start over.

I have gifts and talents that are meant to be shared with all who desire to reach their greatness and live out their missions. It is my resilience that has kept me going. You see, it’s not the obstacles or challenges we face that keep us from succeeding. It’s our inability or unwillingness to learn from those things that allow us to be defeated.

resilience (adj): the ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune.

You have to decide what it is that you want – clearly and vividly. Once you know what that looks like, you then have to get up and take the necessary actions to get you there. Focus on the actions that get you the results you want and follow those steps every single time you find yourself stuck or immobile. Start your journey knowing that you may not have all the answers and you may have to change direction along the way, but commit to not giving up. Let each experience, both good and bad, serve as a lesson to prepare you for what’s to come.

Reinvention is a never ending process. It’s the daily, on-going pursuit of personal growth and fulfillment – a path that ultimately leads to more rewards and greater responsibilities.

Trust God to Take the Giants Down

Trust God to Take the Giants Down

The other day I was reading the story of David and Goliath. Now if you are like me, then you have heard that story countless times. But in my reading the other day, the Lord revealed some truths, and gave me some insight that I had never gotten from the story before.

The Israelite army had been fighting against their enemies, the Philistines, and were camped opposite them with a valley in between. All of a sudden, out of the clear blue, this giant dude shows up. He was over nine feet tall, majorly buff and had an attitude that matched. He at once began to bully Israel, challenging them and defying their God.

Goliath challenged one of Israels soldiers to come and fight him. If they won, then the Philistines would be Israel’s slaves, but if they lost, if this giant troublemaker won, then Israel would be enslaved to the enemy.

For forty days, morning and night, the giant came out and challenged God’s people. And for forty days, no progress was made. Gloom and despair loomed overhead. Depression and fear engulfed the camp. No one dared to take the giant up on his challenge. That is, until one day a young shepherd boy, on a mission from his dad to check on the well fair his brothers, showed up.

David had just arrived at the camp when the Israelites lined up as usual to face the Philistines. And, as usual, out came Goliath. Once again, he mocked and jeered, bullied and sneered, and once again, the Israelite soldiers cowered and feared and ran away. David, was appalled. He could not understand why or how Israel could allow one man to stand in the way of their victory over the enemy.

David’s brothers quickly informed the young, innocent, and what they considered to be ignorant, boy to mind his business. Didn’t he note the size of the guy? Didn’t he see his huge sword? Didn’t he see the massive armor and hear the daunting message from the booming voice of this massive enemy? Just what part of the whole situation was David not getting?

But, in reality, David did get it. He looked beyond the giant and saw God. He knew Who he believed in and no matter how big, how scary, how mean, how massive, the enemy was, God was bigger. David focused on what we oftentimes, fail to see. He focused on the solution to the problem, rather than on the problem itself. He trusted God. Pure and simple. He didn’t doubt. He didn’t second guess. He just flat out trusted and believed God’s word over the word of the enemy.

So, David without any hesitation announced loud and long that he would face the enemy and would defeat him. Upon hearing David’s proclamation, King Saul, tried to dissuade the eager and what he thought to be overzealous young man. But once he realized that David was determined, Saul then tried to help him out. He urged David to take his armor, his weaponry. He tried to get David to do things his way.

But, David wasn’t comfortable with King Saul’s methods. He listened to the advice and then rather than trusting the words and ways of man, surrendered to the higher ways of God. He knew God’s way for His life. He knew God wouldn’t leave Him. He trusted the One Who had never let him down against obstacles and giants in the past and that is exactly what he chose to do in facing this giant.

So, David went out. He faced Goliath head own. No reservations. No turning back. No doubts. No worries. He had God. He declared to the enemy that he was not afraid. He lifted up the name of God above the giant blocking his victory. And though the giant roared. Though he showed his ugliness. Though he puffed himself up bigger and bigger. David didn’t waver. He took what God had given him, his talents, and his abilities, and stepped out in faith. Then with the twirling of a leather strap, and the hurling of a little stone, the giant went tumbling down. And when that bully went down, the rest of the enemies scattered.

You see, it was God’s will that Israel defeated the Philistines. David knew that, and Goliath was standing in the way of God’s will. Goliath represents anything that is standing in God’s will for your life. What kind of Goliaths are you facing right now? Are you fearful? Are you depressed? Is there a giant problem standing right smack in the way and keeping you from what you know God wants for your life?

Then you need to know a few things. First of all, God is bigger than anything you face. Quit worrying and listening to the voice of the enemy. “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (John 4:4 NKJV). So realize that! Take hold of it and let the Spirit of the living God come alive inside of you. Let God arise in you and your enemies will scatter.(Psalm 68:1)

Secondly, you need to realize something else. You need to realize that God has given you everything you need to face any challenge, any obstacle, any giant that comes against you. He has equipped you with certain talents and abilities that He fully intends and expects you to use. Perhaps you are struggling right now with some areas in your life, because you are using methods and ways other than the ones God has purposed for you to use. You need to use what God gave you, no matter what others may tell you. David could not use the things that were unfamiliar to him. He had to trust God with what God had given him. The same applies to you.

The last thing I want to point out is that you need to put your trust in the God of David. He is the giant slayer. He is the One who will before you and bring down every opposing force that stands between you and His purpose for your life, that is, IF you declare Him Lord over your life. When David saw the enemy. When he heard his bullying remarks, when he heard Goliath mock his God and challenge his faith, he reacted. He stood his ground. He let the Spirit of the God that he had loved and trusted, the One who had carried him through his darkest nights, the One who had never once failed Him, rise up inside him. Then he proclaimed to those around him and to the enemy facing him that God was bigger. David declared the victory before he ever stepped foot on the battlefield. He had made up his mind that God was bigger and that the giant was going down. He didn’t doubt. He wasn’t ashamed. He didn’t care if his friends and family thought he was insane. He put his faith above all else and because of that, Goliath fell.

It’s time you do the same. It’s time to step out in faith. Trust in the God who loves you, who knows what is best for you, and declare His victory over the giants you are facing. And know this, once you declare Him Lord over that situation, that problem, that circumstance, then God will bring your giants down!

How to Use the Power of The Mind to Attract What You Want

How to Use the Power of The Mind to Attract What You Want

It is a known fact, that more than 90% of the human mind is not been used. The human mind is the operating system for all of our functions, including the use of the universal laws of attraction. If you simply understand the power of the human mind, and how to get it to work for you miracles can happen.

You have several ways of using the power of the mind to attract the things you want. First let’s tackle the use of the conscious mind. The conscious mind relies deeply on external stimulus. The things you see in your environment, thing she speak about, the movies you watch, all these things stimulate the conscious mind. More importantly the conscious mind informs the subconscious mind.

So whatever you are talking about, watching on television, observe and in your environment, all being transferred back into the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind matches those images and re-create them again and again in your reality.

Often when someone complains about the law of attraction not working in their life they do not realize that their present environment continues to feed their subconscious mind the same old junk that they want to get away from in the first place. They are bombarded by the same sort of friends, the same environment, the same old community of people that they dislike. The law of attraction is always working, and it is working in conjunction with your conscious and subconscious mind.

There are several techniques to alter the effects of the conscious and subconscious mind. Meditation is one of them. Specific use of visualization, affirmations, and self hypnosis are all tools to manipulate the conscious and subconscious mind.

It’s not always easy to get into the subconscious mind without the use of the right techniques. This is why so often people who embark on using the law of attraction often fail. It is essential to learn the right techniques for faster and easier results.

Do You Want to Stop Worrying and Start Living and Feeling Alive?

Do You Want to Stop Worrying and Start Living and Feeling Alive?

Are you worrying about something right now? Are you? If you want to learn how to stop worrying please read on.

I write about what I know and what I have experienced. I do this because if I can turn my situation around, just about anyone can.

I am a recovering alcoholic, sober for 25 years. I had multiple problems to overcome to gain my sobriety. Worrying was one of those problems. My mother was a big worrier. She worried about everything and raised her children to be worriers, too. I worried so much that it crippled me mentally and emotionally. I manufactured things in my mind to worry about, problems that had nothing to do with my reality. I discovered that this triggered my drinking. I later learned that worrying is negative goal setting and by concentration on negative goals, I was bringing those bad events into my reality. Once I understood this, I really wanted to change.

I knew that I had to stop worrying, but I did not know how to start. Does this sound like you? Let me share with you how I did it. Do you ever worry about things that have happened to you in the past? When we think about a past event we are concerned how this will play out in our future. The past is dead. The only thing you can bring with you from the past are lessons, but only if you are willing and open to learn and change. If you stay stuck in the past, you miss your present life completely. You simply go through the motions of life, but you are not living. Let’s decide right now that since we can’t change the past you will not concentrate on it.

If you don’t worry about the past, do you worry about the present? Probably not. If we have a problem in the present moment we are usually actively dealing with it. If you are concerned about your present, ask yourself a few questions. Am I hungry, am I warm, do I have shelter, and am I in pain? If your answer to any of those questions is yes, your first actions should be to pursue a course to improve your situation. You must take care of yourself first. If your answers are appropriate, then all is well with you and you are free to deal with any outside issues.

If we don’t worry about the past and we are presently doing fine, then what do we worry about? The future. It is a time and space that is not promised to us. I found that the only way to stop worry about my future was to actively prepare for it in the present time and space. Spend your time working on the solution to the situation that could occur in your future. An example: You have lost your job and not made a mortgage payment in two months. Any cash you have goes toward food. You are worried that you and your family will end up on the street. What happens three months from now if you worry and do absolutely nothing about your situation? Yes, you and your family could end up on the street. Instead of worrying, spend your time working on a solution to your problem and this will not happen to you and your family. If you believe in god, there is a saying. GOD does not move parked cars. Get moving, believe, if blindly and magic will begin to happen.

To stop worrying, spend your time working on a solution to the problem and even more importantly, think about how wonderful the solution will be. When you think about the solution, by all means feel really good about it. Get your emotions involved in the solution? Take baby steps if you must. This is how you do that. The moment you catch yourself worrying-stop and concentrate on the solution you want to occur for you. Think, visualize, picture the best outcome in your mind and feel great about it. Hold that thought for as long as you can. Make it a picture show in your mind. You will enjoy your movie. After all you have a negative movie running when you worry.

We do not worry about the past or present; we only worry about the future. Only you can change your future. You cannot have two emotions going at the same time. Worry and fear or joy and peace. You can worry or you can think positively about the best solution and feel good about it. You decide.

Life Transitions – Turning Challenges Into Opportunities

Life Transitions - Turning Challenges Into Opportunities

For many of us, changes, particularly those we can’t control, are very stressful and challenging, whether they be the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a pet. Yet, all of these major life changes are challenges that may be turned into opportunities.

What’s the difference between “change” and “transition?” William Bridges in his book, “Transitions Making Sense of Life’s Changes” (2004), views “change” as situational and external; such as moving to a new city or becoming a parent. In contrast, he views “transition” as psychological or internal. Transitions, he emphasizes, are the internal work that helps us to reorient and redefine ourselves and incorporate external changes into our lives.

Research and life experience shows that if we don’t do the internal “transition” work, then we often recreate the same patterns. An example is someone who after 3 marriages, on reflection, realizes that she has married 3 different men who are similar (they may even resemble one another) and has dealt with the same issues in each marriage, never resolving them but rather recreating them and remaining unhappy. So in order to move forward and be happy and fulfilled, we need to take time in each transition to do the work that will enable us to grow and change past patterns that no longer serve us.

How can you turn a challenging major life change into an opportunity?

1. Slow down; for example – rather than getting back on the internet and going out dating right away at the end of a relationship, why not take some time for yourself.

2. Reconnect with yourself and what you enjoy – Take some time alone to think about times in your life when you felt really happy and alive. Think about things you used to do and haven’t for some time or things you’ve dreamed of doing and have never taken the time for. Begin doing them – start with one activity and note how it makes you feel.

3. Get in touch with and acknowledge your feelings rather than pushing them down and not experiencing them; this is important to begin the process of healing from the inside out.

4. Express those feelings through journaling , painting, drawing, dancing, etc.

5. Nurture/pamper yourself – go for a massage; buy a new outfit; have a bubble bath., do something special for yourself and remember you are special and deserve the best.

6. Spend time in nature – go for a walk by yourself in a nearby park or plan a hike with a friend; being in nature is grounding, helps clear us of negative energy, relaxes us and helps our minds get clearer.

7. Exercise – do something physical be it a good walk, yoga or a swim; these help the energy flow and also assist in getting rid of tension, anger and stress.

8. Reach out for support – to a friend, counsellor or life coach.

If you change your perspective around a major transition and see it as an opportunity for growth, fun and self-learning, wonderful things will begin to happen in your life.

Here’s to connecting, creating and transforming your life to one of joy, fulfillment and balance!

Are You Wasting Time, Feeling Overwhelmed and Dont Know Why – Making Completions Will Set You Free

Are You Wasting Time, Feeling Overwhelmed and Don't Know Why - Making Completions Will Set You Free

If you are feeling overwhelmed on a daily basis or find yourself wanting to be more productive or creative in your life but simply keep running in circles, unable to get started and, often as not, end up feeling frustrated, confused and weighed down, you are not alone. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that’s going on in your life requires some sort of resolution, a decision to bring it to conclusion. This includes but is not limited to the magazines and newspapers you think you “should” read because you subscribed to them, the broken vacuum cleaner you “ought to” get fixed because you paid good money for it, the notes you took in that workshop last month that “need to” get transcribed and so you can share the information with friends, the exercise program you “have to” start because you’re tired of being a couch potato. When something is incomplete, it is a hole in your boat. That’s why you often feel like you are sinking.

Incompletion is a major form of energy drain, and can leave you feeling dispirited. Incompletes consist of those “should,” “ought to,” “need to,” or have to” statements as well as the decisions you haven’t made about what you are going to do about even the smallest things, such as when you’ll going to call Aunt Mary because she’s been on your mind and you really “should” call her. David Allen, in his book, Getting Things Done puts it like this, “This (incompletes) includes all your, ‘I’m going to’s, where you’ve decided to do something but haven’t started moving on it yet. And it certainly includes all pending and in-progress items, as well as those things on which you’ve done everything you’re ever going to do except acknowledge that you’re finished with them.”

So, what can you do about all those holes in the bottom of your boat? How can you restore your energy, reclaim your life? Here are some techniques to help you get started.

1. Make a list. You can use a notebook, a file in your computer, a chalkboard, tape recorder or anything else that might be helpful. List everything. Get it out of your head and on to your list. You can categorize your incompletes to make things more manageable, such as “work,” “home,” “calls,” “projects,” “to be repaired,” “organize,” and so on. The important thing is to get everything listed so it’s not rattling around in your head taking up your energy, time and focus.

2. Choose the top priorities to start. Since your list is not already prioritized, simply review the list and highlight the things that are most important. Pick only 3 to 6 to start. Don’t try to get too many or you’ll just feel overwhelmed. You may chose to take action on items that will not require more than one or two steps. Mix these in with your high priority items if you like. For some, it helps to be completing some things while others take longer.

3. Determine your next action. Now make a category called “NEXT ACTION.” What is the very next step that is required by you toward completion? Is it a phone call, will you need to pick up supplies at the hardware store, do you put something in your car in order to deliver it on your way to pick up the kids, go on line to pay a bill or is it simply scouring the kitchen sink? The next action is only one action. It will not necessarily complete your project. What it will do is help you take the necessary steps toward completion. You will continue to put down next actions steps for all those things you cannot do in a single time frame.

4. Now determine WHEN. For the projects that have a lot of steps you won’t be getting to all at once, write down the day or time you will take the next action. Look at your calendar; make a decision about how to fit this action step into your daily routine. Once you have committed to it, follow through. What you’ll find by doing this is that managing tasks through a process is often easier than trying to complete them all at once. The main thing you’ll recognize in doing this process is that you’re back in control again. As you build this skill, the overwhelm feeling will diminish and then fade completely.

5. When you’ve completed your action step, draw a line through your project or make a check mark to indicate you are finished with it and you have kept your commitment. You’ll feel instantly gratified because you’ll actually experience a release of endorphins, the “feel good,” peptide that gives you a natural high. You’ll also build your self-confidence by honoring your commitment to yourself to complete the project. This will go a long way in helping building muscle toward managing your life. It will also let you know you are complete, finished, done!

With practice, these steps become a quick and easy way to bring things to completion. There will always be items on our list that are incomplete. That is the nature of things. But learning to manage incompletes will reduce stress, help you to be significantly more productive and creative because we will not be losing energy through all the holes in the bottom of our boat. These steps will help keep our boat afloat, our head clear and our progress moving forward.
