Take Action!

We're already to #3 of "my" Law of Attraction steps:
1. Decide what you want
2. Carry the feeling that you already have what you want
3. Take the actions you feel inspired to take towards getting what you want
4. Let the Universe worry about getting the rest of the pieces to fall into place

Take the actions you feel inspired to take towards getting what you want.
I'll give you a personal story for this one. 
 For several years I was in bands that played just about every weekend in various bars.  I absolutely LOVED making the music (I sang and was a part-time bass player), but not many of the other things that come with being a "bar band".  This is not the place to go into those details, however.  Eventually, I had enough. I said I was done, it wasn't fun anymore, maybe I'll just go watch some bands once in a while.  Well, my inner self knew, and finally convinced me that I HAVE TO make music-I just enjoy it too much not to do it.  I knew I didn't want to go back to what I was doing before, but wasn't sure how to proceed.  I remember telling a gal from another band about how I wanted to do the music thing but didn't want to play in bars, didn't want to be a lead singer anymore, didn't want to play bass anymore.  She basically told me that then there is no way for me to perform.  I was out to prove her wrong from that point!  I had bought an acoustic guitar many years ago, but only knew a couple chords, so never really played it.  I bought it, honestly, because it looked pretty!  I felt inspired to start playing it, to start learning more chords.  Before I knew it, I felt inspired to play every day when I got home from work. I was getting together with friends just to jam a little, but then felt inspired to take it to the public again.  Just by mentioning in conversation about playing music (feeling inspired to bring it up) I've ended up playing at some fun places.  I've played at nusring homes, benefits, community gatherings, outdoor concerts, and other special occasions.  It feels so good!

By picking up my guitar because I felt inspired to, talking to people about my music when I felt inspired to, etc., I am now giving my soul what it needs!  There's nothing else like the feeling I get when I play my guitar and sing.  We talked about keeping your vibration up in the last post-making music keeps my vibration very high!  I went from feeling depressed that I'd never make music again to elated that I'm making music and loving it!  

Who got me to pick up the guitar?  Who got me to start playing for people again?  Who found those places for me to play?  My higher self, my soul, inspired me to take the actions I took-it knew what would raise my vibration.  No matter how slow I felt my progress was on the guitar, I always felt inspired to keep picking it up.  My playing now is so much more hands on with people instead of being background noise to bar patrons.

So after getting a bit lengthy........what I want to say is-those little "nudges" you get from inside that want to push you in the direction of your dreams-pay attention!!  Take the actions, have the conversations you feel inspired to have.  You just don't know who you'll run into or who may overhear something you're saying that may be just the launching pad you need to get you on the road to where you want to be.  It might feel scary or odd at first, but it will all start snowballing for you once you set things in motion!

Let me not forget to mention being grateful.  It could easily (and probably will be) another whole blog post, but remember that you already have things in your life to be grateful for, they're not just all "out there somewhere" to someday come and make you happy.  I personally have a Gratitude Journal that I write in about things I'm thankful/grateful for.  You woke up today.  You have a roof over your head. The sun is shining.   Be grateful for so many things you take for granted.  The more you appreciate what you already have, the more you vibrate at that level, and the more your desires will be attracted to you! 

What's going on with me this week:
Preparing for my first public talk on the Law of Attraction this Saturday!  I feel like it's still far off, but it's actually just a few days away.  I'm very excited about it and hope I'll be able to give some good information.  

By the way, the Psychic Development Workshop was awesome!  Very interesting, fun, and met lots of cool people.  Sounds like there will be some future classes as well.

Good Vibrations

To continue from last time with my Law of Attraction explanation, we'll talk about #2 of the 4 steps.
1. Decide what you want
2. Carry the feeling that you already have what you want
3. Take the actions you feel inspired to take towards getting what you want
4. Let the Universe worry about getting the rest of the pieces to fall into place

Carry the feeling that you already have what you want.
When you state your desires in the present tense, as if you already have received them, what kind of feeling do you get inside?  For example-if I say "I want a new car", the things that start going through my mind are it costs too much, car shopping is a hassle, only rich people can afford new cars, things like that.  However, if I put myself inside that car in my mind, it turns into "I love my new car!" as I picture being in the driver's seat looking around at the interior, smelling that new car smell, feeling my hands on the steering wheel, taking the car for a can I not be excited about it? So now, when I think about that car, my mind will go right to that feeling I had when I put myself in the place of actually having it.  When you put yourself in the place of having what you want, use your senses to make it all as real as possible.  What do you see, hear, smell? When you touch it, how does it feel?
Do you notice when you get "in" the place of having what you want, you feel all happy, tingly, giddy?  This is your vibration (your energy) going to a higher level.  The higher your vibration, and the more you can keep it that way, the faster you can attract what you want.  When your vibration is up, the Universe will send the things, people, circumstances, etc. in your direction that will help you achieve what you're after.  On the other side of the coin, if your vibration is down in the dumps, that low vibration stuff is what you'll attract.  
Don't worry if you can't immediately flip the switch and feel good.  It does take practice, and before you know it you'll notice your overall vibration is higher than it used to be.
Next time we'll talk about taking inspired action!
What's up with me this week.....

Last Saturday I went to a Holistic Healing and Psychic Fair.  A lady doing angel card readings
had several decks of angel cards for sale, and my friend and I were looking at the cards, talking about them with the lady.  My friend purchased a deck of the cards, and when the woman handed them to her, she started "reading" both of us at once!  She said my friend's spirit guides told her guides to give us this information.  It was truly amazing, as she didn't know either one of us and was bringing up things there's no way she could have known.  We were both completely blown away by the experience!  All 3 of us kept getting all tingly as she would tell us thing after thing.  It's all we could talk about on the drive home.
This weekend coming up, I'm going to a Psychic Development Workshop.  I was told in my numerology reading that I'd gotten back in February that I am psychic, (I have always felt it as my intuition at work) so am going to see what it's all about and see if I can develop it.  I'll let you know how it went!
