Back to basics.

IMG_1871

So, the Holidays are upon us. I’m assuming most of you would agree that with them (hopefully) comes joy and love and happiness and fun with family and friends. I’m assuming most of you would also agree that with them comes stress and over indulgence and hurt feelings and chaos.

So you all know that every day I get an Abraham-Hicks Law of Attraction quote (www.abraham-hicks.com). I’ve mentioned them a lot in these blogs. Last week I got one that I’ve kept in my inbox and have continued to read over and over again. It says it all. And sometimes, you just have to go back to the basics. (Even me and I study the crap out of this stuff). It reads:

 

“You create your own reality and you do so because the thoughts that you are thinking cause you to emanate a vibrational frequency that the Law of Attraction is constantly responding to. And so, in all waking moments, you are creating your own point of attraction and everything that you experience is coming to you because of your vibrational emanation and the response of Law of Attraction to that vibration. It is as if you are standing on a sort of spinning vibrational disc and only things of the same vibration can join you on your disc.”

-Abraham

 

I’m starting to like this disk analogy. So, remember when we were kids and we’d go to the playground and get on that spinning wheel thing? (Okay, maybe if you’re younger and reading this you have no idea what I’m talking about, but stick with me here.) You’d stand on it and someone not on it would start to spin it. And once it really got going, if you weren’t in the middle holding on, you’d get whipped right off that thing and face plant in to the sand. Same with the disk analogy. You’re standing in the middle of your disc emanating a vibration. And those things out in the Universe that match that vibration are hanging on to that spinning disk. And they can’t get whipped off because they are attached to your same vibration. Like attracts and holds on to like. Those things that AREN’T a match to your vibration are flying off and face planting in the sand. So it comes down to this….

What are you keeping on your disk?

This holiday season why not dictate who or what gets to spin with you…

Find Your Happy Place

 IMG_1703

So last week, the Hubby and I took off to our happy place. And although the vacation was planned a couple of month’s ago, turns out Universe was, as always, in divine order about the date we chose. You see we left a few days after the Presidential Election in the U.S. and at that point, we definitely needed to find our happy place. But my guess is not for the reasons you suspect when you read that line. You suspect it’s because of who won. It’s not.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t even watch the election coverage. The Hubby was out of town, so I opened a bottle of wine, caught up on my Modern Family episodes, then turned on the Hallmark Channel, and finally went to bed early. The hate and negativity from the last few months has just been too much so I’ve been avoiding it. My hope was that I would wake up to find the election was over, whomever won won, and all that negativity and hate was over, allowing us to get back to life as we know it. But I was wrong. Way wrong.

So, obviously there are a whole lot of people who support the President Elect. That was proven when he won the election. There are also a whole lot of people who literally hate the President Elect. When I logged on to FB that Wednesday morning, that was pretty apparent. And it’s absolutely your choice whether you support the man or hate the man. I totally get that. (Although, when you ‘hate’ someone, you’re really only hurting yourself…but that’s another blog.)

The problem for me came, when I saw that the hate for the man, was now being transferred to anyone who supported that man. Instead of waking up to a country now focused on healing and moving forward, I woke up to some of the most hateful, angry, fear-based, and nasty posts and comments, made to and about, anyone who voted for him. The hate displayed in mainstream and social media was shocking to me. My shock caused me to comment on a few posts asking for calm and compassion and love, and trying to explain how the Law of Attraction works. Note there, I did not say, “Get over it, you lost!” I was trying to help people by guiding them towards better feeling thoughts. But when I did, I was attacked. I was told I was evil because my comments obviously meant I liked the man. I was racist, I was hate personified, and I was a bigot. One comment did wish me luck living with what I had done to the country. So, there was that.

My point in telling you this is not to make anyone feel sorry for me because I was attacked. (Trust me, I’m a big girl and can take care of myself.) My point is that I learned something. No matter how much you want to help someone, no matter how much you want to teach them that their hate is hurting them…

Sometimes you can’t and you just have to walk away.

For me the hate was palpable and just awful (and unfortunately, it still is…) So I left. I left FB for awhile, I unfollowed or hid people’s posts. (Now I know a bunch of you have posted that graphic saying, “I won’t unfriend, or unfollow, or block anyone for their political posts. I respect your opinions and you’re my friend.” Yea, I get that, but that’s not why I unfollowed peeps. It wasn’t their political posts I was unfollowing, it was their hatred.) I didn’t answer my phone, and I got in the car and we drove to our happy place. And that’s okay. Sometimes you just have to go to your happy place….and leave everyone else to their own thoughts, beliefs, and yes, fears. And your happy place doesn’t have to be a warm beach in another state. It can be inside the pages of a book, between your earbuds, with your dog, whatever.

So instead of engaging anymore in the negativity, last week I took long walks every morning. I sat with the Hubby on the water and watched the pelicans diving and the dolphins jumping. I lied out in the sun. I swam in a nice, warm pool. I ate really good food. I drank really good wine. I met really nice, fun, happy people. I saw old friends I haven’t seen in awhile. I left the hatred and bigotry behind and….I found my happy place again.

What’s in your happy place?

Thank the Universe for Hallmark Channel.

So today is the day. Or I guess I should say tomorrow is. The day that, hopefully, we can let go of all the negativity and finally get back to a positive outlook on life. At least that’s what I wish for some of you. I’m talking about the election of course. I think most will admit that this has been the most negative and vicious election we’ve ever seen. I remember years ago when candidates would actually say, “I’m not going to go negative.” In this election, not only have the teams involved gone negative, so has the mainstream media, and social media, and friends, and family. They’ve all gone so negative that you can’t even figure out what the real facts are. They don’t even seem to exist. And, it’s not just the candidates that people are negative about. It’s anyone who likes the other candidate. I’ve heard stories of marriages breaking up and friendships ending over this election. And that’s just too sad to even think about for me.

So, I’ve talked about the ‘fighting against’ many times before, but I thought I’d throw it out there from a different angle. At this point there are 2 teams in the race. Let’s call them Team Her and Team Him. So the people of Team Her absolutely despise the people of Team Him AND anyone who supports Team Him. And likewise, the people of Team Him absolutely despise the people of Team Her AND anyone who supports Team Her. So Team Her is spending all of its time vilifying Him, his team, and his supporters. Thereby keeping all of them in their vibration. Team Him is doing the same. All of the above are spending all of their energy hating the other guy and thereby what?

Keeping them in their vibration.

And what do we know about the Law of Attraction? “That which is like unto itself is drawn.”

So, my wish for you today when you vote is to do it with positive thoughts and energy and dare I say love for the one you want to win. Otherwise, you may be pushing the button for one, but actually voting for the other….

Me, I’m going to turn on the Hallmark Channel. It’s the countdown to the countdown you know….

In Munay…

If you can’t say anything nice…

I’m loving today’s AH quote: “To hold someone as your object of attention while you’re connected to Source Energy, is the greatest gift that anyone could give.” As humans and decent people, we want to help those around us who are suffering from one thing or another or just complaining about one thing or another. Unfortunately, what we tend to do when someone comes to us with that suffering, is to kind of help them wallow in it. We offer suggestions, but for the most part we agree with them, “Yes, I know, it’s so hard. I’m so sorry this bad thing is happening to you. You must feel just awful. I’m so sorry you’re so sad,” etc. So instead what should we do?

Nothing. Don’t say a thing.

Sounds pretty harsh, right? Well think about it. Although we mean well, by saying those things we think are helping them, we’re really only helping them keep all that ‘suffering’ or ‘complaining’ energy around them. We shouldn’t add any energy what-so-ever to their suffering or complaining. If you can’t say anything positive when you’re around someone in that state, then you shouldn’t say anything at all.

The best thing you can do for a person who is choosing to suffer or complain is to find your own connection to Source/God/Universe/Spirit and THEN to think about your friend from that perspective. Holding them in love and appreciation. Thinking awesome thoughts about them. To hold someone as your object of attention while you’re in that space is way better than helping them stay in their space.

So, next time you find yourself sitting next to someone who is complaining or suffering…even rightfully so…offer to help them.

And then don’t say a word.

You’ll be amazed at what happens.
