Attracting Positive People

Love Affirmations1c

 

We often follow the idea that we attract what we are feeling and that which we are.  The same goes with the people that come into your life.  It’s not a forced action as much as it is a way you feel about yourself.  Others will gravitate towards your positivity and be aligned with your true self.  Allow the idea of those people into your life and they will show up for you.

Where am I to Where I want to be Exercise

Where am I to Where I want to be Exercise

goal_setting

This exercise is from my upcoming book “Falling in Love with Your True Self – Using self love to have healthier relationships, attract more abundance and finding your divine purpose”.  This exercise can be used when you have set a goal but are unsure where you stand in relation to that goal.  This gives you a starting or continuing point to achieve your desire.

Where am I to Where I want to be Exercise

On a blank sheet of paper make two columns.  The first one will be what you do want and the second column will be why this step is necessary for your goals completion.  This is sort of a pro and cons look at a thought to deconstruct it’s purpose.  Lets make this desire/thought something smaller so that you can see a solution without too much effort.

As an example I will use the desire of wanting to be able to cook a soufflé perfectly.  A soufflé is a good example as it is possible by anybody, it’s something that I think most people like to eat and its a nice accomplishment when done properly.  I say perfectly because if any of you have attempted a soufflé you know its either done perfectly or it is not enjoyable.

To start make side by side columns the first being your desire and the second being what feeling that desire brings you.

I want to cook a soufflé perfectly Cooking a soufflé brings me happiness

Next under your desire column let’s list some thoughts of how you think you would achieve this desire.

I need to get a cookbook on making soufflés 
I need to get ingredients to make a soufflé 
I need to practice making a soufflé 
If my soufflé didn’t work out try a different receipe
Keep making soufflés till they are perfect

After that let’s add some thoughts next to each to map out a plan of why you need to do any of those things.

I want to cook a soufflé perfectly  Cooking a soufflé brings me happiness
I need to get a cookbook on making soufflés  The cookbook will show me a step by step seeing I have never made a soufflé 
I need to get ingredients to make a soufflé  Without the ingredients I would not have anything to make the soufflé 
I need to practice making a soufflé  Practicing making them will help me get better at perfecting them
If my soufflé didn’t work out try a different receipe A different approach might be easier for me
Keep making soufflés till they are perfect If I keep making them eventually I will perfect them

Keep this chart and if you have achieved any of these things you can cross them out.  You can use this exercise as a vision board for a specific desire.  The point of the exercise is to show you a plan of how to achieve a desire.  If you waited all day for the soufflé to be done but didn’t even look up the recipe how could you be depressed you can’t make a perfect soufflé?  Listing out why you need to do each of the steps allows you to see a clearer path for how you will get to your goal.  You can use this exercise with anything in your life be it love, career or money.

I want to cook a soufflé perfectly  Cooking a soufflé brings me happiness
I need to get a cookbook on making soufflés  The cookbook will show me a step by step seeing I have never made a soufflé 
I need to get ingredients to make a soufflé  Without the ingredients I would not have anything to make the soufflé 
I need to practice making a soufflé  Practicing making them will help me get better at perfecting them
If my soufflé didn’t work out try a different receipe A different approach might be easier for me
Keep making soufflés till they are perfect If I keep making them eventually I will perfect them

If you cross out things you have done to get there or even just writing it all out will show you where you are to where you want to be in your life.  Knowing where you stand allows you the ability to gain momentum towards a desired outcome.  Once you have the feelings behind a desire written down you can more easily experience the feeling of that desire to complete its manifestation.  Feeling how it is to experience a desire is a much stronger feeling than feeling you don’t have that desire or can’t achieve it.

Try this exercise with a few of the things in your life you feel you don’t have and see how you feel if you hold the idea of it happening vs the idea of it not being possible.

Mudras

Mudras

Mudra_000

Mudras are positions of the body that seal in energy.  While they can be done in different poses the most common are done with the fingers and hands while meditating.

You often see the index (Jupiter) finger and the thumb touching in a lot of meditative postures, as the photo above shows.  This is because your Jupiter finger touching your thumb initiates knowledge which is usually desired during meditation.

As energetic beings we always have energy flowing in and from us.  Your fingers are a source of this energy.  Your fingers correspond to certain planets and constellations:

Index Finger – Jupiter – Guidance and Knowledge
Middle Finger – Saturn – Purpose, Patience and Mood
Ring Finger – Apollo or Sun – Passion, Health and Creativity
Pinky Finger – Mercury – Communication
Thumb – Connects back to you and represents your ego (We want to channel these other traits back to our ego)

This becomes important when certain planets are in alignment and you can benefit or work though astrological issues while meditation in a certain finger position.  If you’ve ever done a full natal chart often there are squares and triangles that form with the planets alignment when you were born.  Some people struggle with issues throughout their life that can be worked on by channeling that planets energy back into yourself during meditation using Mudras.  Mudras allow us to bring prana back into ourselves and re-feeding that energy that is leaving our bodies.

If your example you are feeling a lack of communication with your loved one or your boss you can connect your pinky finger and your thumb while holding the other 3 fingers together and meditate on the feeling of communciation to bring that energy back into your awareness.

While there are hundreds of Mudra positions I find the 5 finger ones easy to do at any time during the day.  Touching the fingertips to the thumb brings that energy back.  Touching the palms together brings together yin & yang, masculine and feminine, the two sides of your being together. This is why it is used a lot in yoga as a way of being aware of both of those qualities in you and to balance you out.

You don’t need to do a full yoga class or a 20 minute meditation to quickly align yourself.  Try a few Mudras a day and see how you feel after each one.

I am Introduction

I am Introduction

i-am

One of the biggest changes I’ve done in the past year is the concept of how to use the two words “I am”.  I was introduced to it by Wayne Dyer in his book Wishes Fulfilled.  I then started reading the I am Discourses which I will do a full post on soon.

This video has some of the best spiritual authors and how I am has worked for them as well.
