If God is omnipresent then doesn't it make sense that "every thought is a prayer"? I was always fascinated by the thought that God knows everything and is omniscient. I used to wonder why I need to pray or tell God anything - because shouldn't God already know?
I've pondered this for a very long time and figured out that God isn't listening only by appointment, when you choose to spend a few minutes periodically in conscious communication. God is listening every second of every day.
God is listening when you appreciate and give thanks for what you have and where you are and God is listening when you are complaining because you aren't where you want to be and don't have what you want.
So where do you spend most of your time? Do you spend most of your time being thankful or do you spend most of your time worrying? Worrying is the equivalent of complaining. The more we worry the more we complain.
I've always had a problem with the words "I forgive but I never forget". If you can't forget then you haven't really forgiven have you? Basically, what you're saying is "you did this thing that hurt me once, which means you are capable of doing it again, so I need to protect myself from you". But if you feel that way then by Law of Attraction you are attracting to yourself the very thing you do not want. Because the Law of Attraction is precise and it will always give you want you think about, and not what you intend - unless you think about what you intend. I learnt that lesson the hard way. It was so hard in fact, that I had to devise a way to forgive as well as to forget.
I met Carol many years ago at a dinner event. She sat next to me and we started talking. At that time I was into commissioned sales in the financial sector, and Carol was a real estate agent. Of course, I had to ask her about how the real estate market was doing and she wanted a tip on the hottest stocks. Lol! We got along really well.
I was really new in the commissioned sales business at the time, although I had been working in the financial industry for many years prior. Business wasn’t doing all that well. I found commissioned sales really hard. My income was all over the place, and I wasn’t too fond of waking up every morning wondering where the next morsel was going to come from. My parents would say I’m stubborn, I like to think I’m determined. My thought process always says “if it can be done, then I will find a way to do it”, so as far as I am concerned if there are other commissioned sales people who are absolutely “killin it” then I should be able to do so as well. Carol seemed like a very successful realtor, so I had to ask her how she prospected for business. I am so glad I did. Because she shared a little tip that opened a whole new way of thinking for me. She said “if you’re not hitting your goal, you need to rethink it”.
Hello dear friends! Today I wanted to talk to you about rituals and why they work for some people, but don’t work for other people. When we get to the end I’ll summarize the three factors that are really important in using a ritual and getting what you want.
“I am willing to change all those beliefs that no longer serve me”. And what I want to say to you about this today is really important. Because what I’ve noticed happens is that when we use the word belief we think about big things - like, I have this belief that people are good or I have this belief that you can’t trust people. We think of those things as our beliefs. One of my beliefs, and I’m sure it’s your belief as well, is that the sun will come up tomorrow morning. It’s a belief. It’s a thought that we've thought many, many times. That’s all a belief is. It’s a thought that we think over and over again. It can be about something important, but it can also be about something unimportant.
Vision boards are one of the most misunderstood Law of Attraction tools out there. And it doesn’t help that there are so many people presenting different ways of using this really important tool.
The first thing I want to tell you about vision boards is that if you’re using a vision board to “make something happen”, you’re actually shooting yourself in the foot. Because when you do anything, take any action at all, which is meant to “make something happen”, you’re actually focused on the absence of what you want. And when you focus on the absence of what you want you make absence bigger. And because you make absence bigger you push that thing further away.
When you listen or read, Law of Attraction material, it feels as if the gurus are telling us that success in life with the money that we want, the health, the relationship, the self-worth - all will come to us only if we can get to a place of joy and then stay there for ever.
Should we dare to fall off that lofty place of joy on the emotional scale, then we would put at risk everything that we have. That is not my personal truth. I don't think anyone can get to a place of everlasting joy. Here's why:
Yes, it’s true we all have those times in our lives when we have to put a lot of effort into focusing our minds and staying on course. The last couple of days have been like that at my end. One of my colleagues passed away at the ripe old age of 48 – he was as old as my brother. Just went for a walk on a beautiful spring day and never came back. A friend shared news that her husband has been diagnosed with cancer, while another friend is in emotional turmoil because her husband’s cancer is back.
