Bluebirds and the Law of Attraction?

What does a Bluebird have to do with Law of Attraction?

So I am currently reading a book entitled: “How The Secret Helped Change My Life” by Rhonda Byrnes.  This book is a sequel to Rhonda’s bestselling book “The Secret” published in 2003.  This book helped introduced a lot of people to the universal or natural law of attraction which basically says like attracts like. 

I saw the The Secret movie years ago, purchased it and now use it for my students and people I mentor about all this stuff spiritual.  I was reading the sequel because one of my students showed it to me while we were in a library together prior to one of our workshops.  She had too many books and was going to put it back; I told her I’d take it.  Otherwise I probably won’t have even picked it up.  But the universe does arrange for things like this to happen – all very subtle and usually one thing leads to another.

I have recently been practicing a variety of manifestation techniques; but as with human nature until we make things a true habit, some actions and intentions slide off us and we forget to use what may be handy.  (This is why you need to read lots of books about the same subject or you go to church every Sunday.  Our memories are short and sometimes we need reminding.)

In the Change My Life book, people wrote letters telling her how The Secret worked for them.  One person wrote about manifesting something small like a red thimble.  If this stuff is new to you, the suggestion is to start with something small.

Well, some my manifestations felt rusty to me and weren’t really working the way I needed them to work.  I felt a minor tune up was in order. 

So I read this letter about the red thimble and said yes, I need to renew myself and start with something small.  But I didn’t want a red thimble, so I choose a blue feather.  Not only a blue feather—but a specific blue feather…for my mind immediately went to a local park where these unusually bright blue birds were.  These blue birds are particular to this area I guess – I never saw them up north.  Nor have I seen them in my backyard actually.  I’ve only seen them in this park about forty-five minutes away.

So I sent my request into the universe that I wanted to see a blue feather manifest in my life. 

Then I waited.  Then I forgot about my request.  (This is the key folks – let it go and let the Universe do its thing! Don’t worry about the How.)

Two days later, I happened to remember my request as a friend had sent me some new angel cards.  (I seemed to be collecting them!)  Within the deck was a picture of a blue feather!!!

(Pictures count!!!)

I smiled and nodded although it wasn’t quite what I asked for.  Something (or someone!) told me it was time to change the picture on my smart phone.  So my attention was drawn to that activity and as I scrolled on the available pictures that are offered – and there it was: my bluebird!!!  It was the same kind of bright almost metallic feathered  blue bird that I saw in the park and that was part of my request!!!  Yes—the universe had delivered exactly what I asked for.  Hey, birds have feathers! It counts!!

So my faith was restored and my belief that the law of attraction does deliver to me what I am thinking about was validated.   Ask, believe and receive!  Yep, it really does work!

And that is what blue birds have to do with the law of attraction!!!  Don’t you love the way the Universe works!!!

Blake loves the Cove Springs Park where she saw the first blue bird.  Nature has a way of waking us up and renewing our spirits!

What will our Tomorrow Look Like?

What will our tomorrow be?
What will our tomorrow be?

Yesterday, I went to see “Tomorrowland” which stars George Clooney.  This movie is produced by Disney.  I can highly recommend this movie all of my spiritual friends.  In fact, the movie is very spiritual in nature and provided me with renewed optimism and motivation for our future.

This blog isn’t a movie review beyond this blurb…but does touch on the subject of our future – i.e tomorrow.

What are you doing about tomorrow?  Not only on a personal, but professional and planetary level?  Too much of our news and media is wrapped in the gloom and doom of tomorrow.  As a student of film and TV production (yes, this is where my college degree is); we were taught as broadcast journalism students: “If it bleeds, it leads.”

Unfortunately this idiom is still in effect.  Why?  Why do people continue to flock to blood and gut type of events, when every Christmas everybody is asking for peace on earth?

Folks, we can’t have it both ways!   Law of attraction says like attracts like.  So the more violence we have, the more greed we have, the more ego and ego-laden events we have, the less peace we will have.

You can’t ask for peace and expect peace if you’re tuned into nightly news, playing violent video games and cheering your latest boxing match.  The frequencies of these events aren’t in alignment.

Many feel if they ask for peace, then life will be boring.  I’ve written about this before.  But peace can be very fulfilling – as the song says: give it chance!

The Law of Attraction is here to stay.  But we won’t be until we decide to truly be a human race of peace and not violence, ego and guts and glory.

Turn off the news, practice meditation and forgiveness, recycle, volunteer.  These are just a start.

It’s true – we create our own reality—start today and receive a better tomorrow.  We can do this – we’ve been doing it.  Just keep expanding and keep aiming for a more peaceful and productive tomorrow.

And if you need some help along the way towards a better life,
we may have some Divine knowledge of how to get there
that can be useful to you.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you!

Discovering how Law of Attraction Works

“Oh no! Not another class on Law of Attraction – that is so Pre-2008!”
“LOA?  Tried it, doesn’t work for me.”
“Isn’t that what that movie ‘The Secret’ was all about?  I don’t get it.”

You can see Lake Michigan from my back yard! Sweet!

These and more are just some of the comments I’ve heard from others about that almost clichéd term: Law of Attraction.  So why am I know teaching an online and local workshops on this universal law?

Simple: I get it and others don’t and I want to see if I can get you to get it too.  Got it?  Good!

I get the law of attraction and I understand how it works.  I am able to make it work for me – not against me.  How do I know?  Because I’m living the life I want to live as a result of following this universal law.   I have want I want in life as a result of understanding how this law works—as it works for all of us.

I see what this law can do for me and what it does or doesn’t do for others – as they allow or don’t allow it to work in their lives.

The movie “The Secret” was only half the story.  We all know that.  For most of us, we watched it once and then tried it once or twice; it got too hard and then we walked away from all of this ‘nonsense’ and went back to our daily grind.

Yet life went on, didn’t it?  Did anything change for you?  Probably not.  You really didn’t ‘get’ how and why this law works then, did you?  And if you did for a time and it worked – great!!!  Welcome to the club!  However, my observation is: most people aren’t living the real life they want – they are living the life that is.

Now you can start over again – with a clean slate.  You know and we know –you want something better.

I’ve been blogging about universal laws for a while now –because I know they work.  See the picture I have with this blog.  That’s my back yard.  And yes that is Lake Michigan.  I live in a very nice neighborhood now and I have fantastic work that I’m doing.   I finally feel like I’m enjoying my life and living my life’s purpose.

Did it happen because I wished it would?  Yep, partially.  Did I do a lot of action items to make it work? Yep, some.  But how did I really get here?  And how can you get here too?  With your own slice of paradise in your backyard and doing your life’s true work?

That is what I am now teaching in my online workshop about Discovering the Truth about Law of Attraction.  We have our first workshop starting on September 11th and concluding on September 18th in the evening.  You can go over to our web page and learn all the details.  Needless to say, I’d love for you to be part of this workshop.

I know this stuff works – I’m living proof.  Now I want to teach you how to get here too.  Join us, won’t you?

Love and Light Always,

Blake loves her new home and used the law of attraction to bring it to her.  She’s her own genie!


We got lost after 2008 – but we can get found again.  Don’t let others drag you into to the swamp with them.  Join us for this workshop and learn how to drain your swamp!   

Law of Attraction – Escaping the Swamp – Pt 2

In our last blog entry, we looked at Fred, who is always complaining about his lousy job and the effects of law of attraction on his actions, words and deeds.  If you miss our first half our story, click here to read it or re-read it again to refresh your memory. As we said in our earlier blog, Fred is looking at the alligators, not how to drain the swamp.   And the more he complains, the worse works seems to get!  He’s attracting more discourse because that is what he is focused on.

Are you surrounding yourself with alligators?

How can Fred help himself get out of the swamp full of alligators? If Fred would look around him, even while fending off the alligators, he could start thinking about how to drain the swamp—picturing in his head how he would do it and what the end result would be.  If he did this, he would find that the alligators would get bored of him and start to wander away.  Because now he’s not just thinking about the alligators—or his lousy job—but about the draining of the swamp—or what his next job could be, once he stops thinking how lousy his current position is.

Thinking about what we want is what we need to focus on for manifestation to occur.  Thinking about a better place may cause us to start taking action towards new opportunities and circumstances.

Fred stops complaining about his job and starts to daydream about what he really wants to do.  Slowly he is changing his perception of his circumstances and thus his mood.  He actually finds a few things to like about his current circumstances and things in life seem less painful and easier to him. He even cleans up his resume, makes it current and boldly sends it out into the world with the focused intent of a positive result of a new job he can find satisfaction in.

This process doesn’t happen overnight—first Fred had to come to the conclusion that complaining about his job didn’t seem to be working.  He became self-aware of his behavior and thus was able to get himself past all those alligators and start looking at the swamp in a whole new light.  And once he figured this out, those pesky alligators didn’t look so mean and simply started disappearing.

Remember nothing changes, if nothing changes.  Law of attraction only confirms this statement as it brings to you what you are focused on –good, bad or even indifferent.

So what are you focusing on these days?  Can you re-orient yourself to a different point of view?  Can you begin to speak in positive terms about what your future will hold as you continue to mold it – or will you continue to moan and groan about your life’s current situation?

You are creating your own future…whether you accept it or not.  The law of attraction will prevail regardless, just as the law of gravity exists.  So how are you going to shape your world? Let us know by providing your comments below.

Love and Light Always,

Blake

Blake has had numerous issues in her life that she’s learned to overcome—many times struggling to find the answers.  Then she learned about the law of attraction, focused on a new perspective of life and doors of great opportunity “magically” opened for her.  She’s learned firsthand of how this powerful natural law could help her and now seeks to help others learn how to have a better life too.

Law of Attraction – Escaping Your Swamp-Part 1

It’s hard to focus on what you do want when you’re dealing with what is happening right in front of you—and it’s something you don’t want.  Law of attraction says like attracts like—meaning you’re going to attract what you are thinking about and focused on.  (Learn more about law of attraction here!) This means if you are just focusing on what is negative in our life or current life circumstances, you will continue to receive the same set of circumstances.  Conversely, if you are thinking is more uplifting and positive, chances are this is the realm of people and events you will attract.  So why does it seems that sometimes the opposite is true?  You surround yourself with happy people thinking that some of their happiness will rub off on you, until you are about to burst from all the Polly Anna’s, yet your life still sucks? Well that is because you can’t move from one state of emotions to another in a blink of an eye.  We don’t work that way.  And never does the law of attraction.

Are you surrounding yourself with alligators?

There is a saying that it’s hard to drain the swamp when you’re knee deep in alligators.  Your intention is to drain the swamp, but you are focusing on the alligators—and probably rightly so.  But you’ve got to deal with the alligators first, before you can drain the swamp (and thus get rid of future alligators). Think about your job situation.  Do you like your job?  Maybe parts of it…maybe none of it.  Maybe you love your job, so for our example this wouldn’t apply to you.  But substitute the disliked job scenario for a scenario that you can better relate to – perhaps you have a relationship problem, a money problem or even something unique to you. Let’s look at Fred.  Poor Fred.  He doesn’t like his job.  Once upon a time he did, but the job no longer offers him the satisfaction that it once held. Perhaps he simply knows too much and he’s bored, or the company culture changed and he was forced into a situation that wasn’t of his own making.  Or so it would appear.   Fred starts complaining about his job.  How he doesn’t get support from his fellow workers, much less his boss.  That the job doesn’t hold the same interest it once did.  For many reasons, he feels stuck and just doesn’t see a way out. Fred is looking at the alligators, not how to drain the swamp.   And the more he complains, the worse works seems to get!  He’s attracting more discourse because that is what he is focused on.  He’s getting more alligators. How can Fred help himself get out of the swamp full of alligators?  In our next blog entry we’ll at some solutions. In meantime, are you focused on alligators or on the swamp?
