Many of my clients are under the misconception that practicing the Law of Attraction along with the other Universal Laws means not allowing for negative emotions. They fear that if they feel emotions that are uncomfortable or painful, then they will attract more things into their lives that they do not like, want or prefer to happen. What I call contrast.
Have you ever met someone who appeared very confident at first and then the more you got to know them you realized they lacked genuine self-confidence? Perhaps, initially they came off quite assertive, even a little aggressive. Yet, deep down they felt small.
Or, you have met someone who is quite capable, competent, intelligent but they doubt themselves all the time. They apologize too frequently and worry too much about upsetting or disappointing others. And, this doubt prevents them from taking on new challenges and growing.
I often say that we have a relationship with everything in our lives, including money. We can determine if we will have a “For better or Worse” relationship with money. This largely depends on the unconscious promises we have made to ourselves and the universe about our ability to create our abundance.
"When I look into the Future it is so bright it burns my eyes!"
Do you believe that we have thousands of potential future selves? In this given moment, you can determine whether you will have a horrible future, a good future or an amazing future and these future selves can manifest in so many ways.
Here we are nearing the end of the summer. It is getting darker earlier in the day again and there is a bit of a chill in the air. The sure sign of Fall is when the kids return to school. Soon, we will be putting our summer clothes away and bringing back our Fall/Winter attire. I find this both sad and exciting.
I am sad that we only have so many warm, outdoor days ahead and I will soon be putting away my summer dresses and sandals for jackets and boots. I am also excited to rediscover what I have stored away in my Winter bin. And, to add to my wardrobe with some new Fall items!
I recently returned from holidays. And, as some of you may know from one of my previous entries, I spoke of remaining mindful of this pleasant event and being unmindful of worry/planning thoughts about my business while I was off.
Well, things were going along swimmingly. Until, I returned from out of town to find that a social media platform where I have a business page had charged me near $ 900.00 for a game app that I had never downloaded or played. I did reach out the the social media platform twice to find out how this happened and have yet to receive an explanation.
I, like you and and many of my clients find that relaxing can be a challenge. A number of my clients tell me that even when they are not working, their minds are not shutting off from work. They are so preoccupied with their list of work “to dos” they are unmindful of their present moment.
Many of the solopreneurs I coach are pre-occupied with worry and catastrophe thoughts like:
“If I take that time off, I will miss out on that sale or that client and then I won’t be able to pay my bills, pay off my debt etc…”
“Today, I am committing to my physical well-being”
This mantra is my “go to” these days. Largely, because this last year has been challenging when it comes to my health. I am a huge advocate of life balance and harmony, so tending to my mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being is of utmost importance to me.
Unfortunately, the reason I am a huge advocate of life balance and harmony is because I tend to get out of balance. This last year, my body has been doing a lot of talking. It has been speaking to me with the recurrent colds/flus I had over the winter, and back, hip and knee pain.
Most likely, you have been invited to one or more weddings this summer. With the warmer weather, wedding ceremonies and receptions are often held outside. It can get a little confusing about what is appropriate to wear given the type of wedding. Keep these tips top of mind to help you make more confident choices:
1. Always pay attention to the dress code on the invitation; Is it cocktail, formal black tie, beach, casual?
I love music. I especially love Blues. I have gone to many live music shows. I attended the Blues Fest, every year, for a number of years, everyday, right here in Ottawa, Canada. I recently came across this video of Sister Rosetta Thorpe playing a mean guitar and belting out an amazing Blues tune called “ Didn’t it Rain ” at an outdoor concert in Manchester, England in 1964. I couldn’t help but bop around listening to it.
A TV producer by the name of Jonny Hamp was in attendance of this outdoor event and he reported that there was a downpour of rain that literally dampened the show, but then Sister Rosetta came out and sang this song “Didn’t it Rain”. He stated “the downpour would have led to the worst memory of the show had it not led to the best.” You’ve got to check her out here !
