I hope you are having a great day. This week I wanted to talk about a concept that can be really
Baffling. The concepts of Time. The reason for this topic is that I am usually asked when will I manifest this or that? Or how long will it take to manifest such and such?
Time does not exist. From the Source's point of view time as we know it does not exist. Perhaps you have heard the famous quote by Albert Einstein that "time is an illusion, albeit a persistent one" . This has never made more sends to me than this week when I am in Iran and was talking to my little ones back in the USA. Before I left I told my girls that when you miss me just look at the moon and know that I am also looking up at the exact same moon. Being 11 1/2 hours ahead when I call them, it is their "tomorrow". Yet it is just "NOW" for both of us. I am not seeing the future nor am I in my daughters' future. There is no such a thing as future from the grand scheme of things. There is only now.
So the long and the short answer is "you will, not can, have it now". If you believe something is difficult and takes a long "time" then it will, but that is your limiting the possibility. It sounds simple and yet it's anything but. I find that if I try to make a logical sense out of it, I confuse myself because I just don't understand the Universe that well. The great thing is that I really don't have to. I just have to let it be.
Just like the "how" is not my work, I personally have more success when I let it happen when it needs to. I wish I could do this more often but I am learning. This seems to go against the principles of goal setting and it is. Your manifestations are the culmination of your goal not the goal. They are what happens when you achieve your goals. When you have the vision clearly in your mind. Go about setting the goals but as you concentrate on the outcome of the vision be ok with not knowing when. Your goals will then be inspired by what you will attract and the doors that will open will lead you to create time specific and you maned goals.

Good day and I hope you are doing well. I will keep this short as we are approaching the holidays here in the U.S. I think this concept of Never giving up, is very important. I like the Buddhist stance that “you either win, or you lose” when it comes to life. The goal of life is to be happy. There is no middle grey area.
Every day you are battling for victory. It is the journey that will make you successful because unless you stop and give up and quit, you cannot lose. No matter how bad the situation may “seem”, you have the choice to continue to fight. In martial arts when two combatants are relatively evenly matched, it is the one who can impose his will to keep going no matter what that emerges victorious. Many times less skilled fighters in MMA have overcome odds by just having what we refer to as “heart”. The will to keep on going no matter how bad it looked to the outsider. It is not over in life, until you say it is.
A new year is approaching the Western world. Don’t wait for the new year to decide. Decide now that you will always keep going just one more step every day towards your goals. I promise you that this time next year you will be happier and more abundant in every way by just making this one decision.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. I did not experience The Law of Attraction (LOA) until I was in my mid 30’s. I am still learning new things, and have much more to grasp. Finances have gradually improved as I become someone who can handle and is ready for the expansion. My relationships with my kids and family is at the moment the focus of my epiphany and will require concentration and work. Why do I share all this with you?
I want to emphasize that this is a journey and not a destination. You or I cannot force it no matter how hard we try. We can focus our minds and plan goals to take us towards the results we want to see, but it takes as long as it takes for us to be ready for it. I know that everything I have envisioned for myself is here, and I just have to be ready to receive it. Open the door and let it flow to me and let life be joy. I have 100% faith in the ability to become completely happy in every aspect of my life and be totally fulfilled. Some, I have right now, and others I have now in my mind’s eye and I am just waiting for their manifestation which will come to me at the right time and in perfect way.
The process is the key, I sometimes get lazy and will forgo the visualization, or the affirmations or just do it halfheartedly, but the little things on the way to the goal are the key. Jim Rohn said “success is doing small, right things, every day…” Small, right things, every day. 3 key points. Keep it small and simple so you don't overwhelm yourself and bring up resistance. Do the right things, meaning keep focus on what you want and what bring you joy. Lastly do them every day. Like a snow ball, small right things can only become boulders and gain momentum if done consistently every day.
Don’t get lazy and loose the momentum, but also don’t punish yourself if you miss a day or two. That is not doing the right thing. Punishing yourself is doing the wrong thing, so don’t add insult to injury. Get back on focus as soon as you realize you messed up and you will be surprised how quickly you will get the momentum back. The best way of course is not to lose the momentum in the first place by doing the right things every day. Take action now and do it and know it is yours.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week’s blog post will be very short but do not mistake it for having any less of a significance. Many times the simplest information are the best and most useful one, and I hope this will be one of those that will make your pursuit of and the use of The Law of Attraction (LOA) that much more successful.
I remember when one of the first Batman movies was coming out, the build up to the premier was of such magnificent proportion that really nothing could have ever lived up to the expectation. Sure enough the film did not really live up to the hype even though years later it still stands as a great movie depending on who you ask. The same is true with LOA.
Sometimes the hype and yes, the marketing of different venues leave one over whelmed with the “power” of this magnificent law. I am not trying to take anything away from the actual law which is, exact in every way and available to any person. What I am getting at here is the fact that one can build undue resistance if one is caught up in the so called “propaganda”. Can LOA give you everything you can desire? Yes it can. Is it the most amazing law in the entire Universe? It depends on your knowledge of all the different law, but it is a pretty cool law. Can you over estimate what it can do? No, but you can get yourself caught up in the misinformation and also get too close to the scarcity mindset whilst trying to achieve the desires you want to accomplish.
From the stand point of The LOA, your feelings are one of the most important part of the whole equation. When we give something the mystical power or “magic” we unintentionally bring about the feeling of “impossibility”. That is just the way most people have been conditioned. If it is too good to be true then it is as the saying goes. If it is magical then I have to have some kind of “special” power. Nothing can be further from the truth though. When you put The Law on a pedestal, you can in turn remove yourself from the ability of “RECEIVING” which is also a big part of the whole equation. You have to believe that you will receive, in order to receive. It is just that. It is a law. You follow the formula, and you get the results every time, all the time.
So my advice is keep things grounded. There is no mystical power here from the stand point of magic. It is mystical as our Universe is mystical. It is also as precise as our Universe is precise, and you can benefit from learning about it. I hope this makes sense. As always please feel free to share this with anyone who may benefit and leave me comments on my Facebook page and Twitter feed. Until next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. This week’s blog post is going to tag on to last week’s blog on happiness. Inner peace goes hand in hand with the attainment of happiness. When I read this Zen Card, I was reminded of the lesson Dr. Joe Vitale taught in the “Attractor Factor”. There is a part of the deliberate manifesting that is very hard to do, and yet it is critical. It is letting it go.
Let me get into this from the stand point of The Law of Attraction (LOA) to make it clear. When we desire something, especially if it is something out of our comfort zone, or something we really, really want, massive amount of resistance happens to tag along. Let me ask you a question. Where do you think wanting something really, really bad comes from? OK I will make it a multiple choice question for you. Do you think it comes from (a) Scarcity, or (b) abundance? You got it. You can feel it don’t you? When we really want, or need something that is coming from scarcity and scarcity will only bring about more opportunities to have scarcity. It will not bring inner peace which is what you need to be a deliberate creator.
But letting go is not an easy thing to do when you really want something. Also what about keeping your vision in mind and all that? Is this a contradiction in terms? Not really. Remember the first rule of manifesting is to be specific and know exactly what you want. That is the reason you keep your vision in mind and go over it over and over. To make sure that you are completely clear on what you want. That has nothing to do with the “wanting it so bad and that you pass into the desperation”. Letting go does not mean that you have to force yourself to forget about it. On the contrary it means to enjoy the vision, enjoy the certainty that it is coming and “TRUSTING” the Universe that it will come at the perfect time in the perfect way.
Trusting the Universe has been called faith, belief, hope, but no matter what you call it, the bottom line is to know that what you want is coming to you at the perfect time in the perfect way. That is the reason the 2nd law of manifesting is that the “HOW” is not your responsibility. That does not mean you don’t plan. You plan for your actions as you get the inspirations to take steps. However do not force the issue the way you want it, and be fluid enough to adjust your plan as you get feedback from the Universe in the form of your feelings. When things feel like they are just too far away, or that they are too needy, then you are NOT on the right track. It has to feel good to you. Keep that in mind. Your emotions are what powers your visions. It is not always easy to go with what feels good, especially when you want something bad. After all when we don’t have what we want we don’t feel good. That is your indication to let it go for “now”.
Remember, when you ask it is always given. So when you let it go, it does not mean that your desire is not going to come to you anymore. You are just taking a breather to make yourself calm and get yourself on the right vibration. It does get easier with practice, I promise you.

Hi. No matter what we say and how much we actually understand The Law of Attraction (LOA), there are people, and circumstances that make us turn negative. For me it is my kids. When they are unhappy, I am unhappy. Perhaps if you are a parent you can relate. So what does it take to keep the balance? How do you keep on reaching for something that feels good in the face of your loved ones or other similar circumstances not being happy?
It comes to something so simple that it is fundamental. You need to keep your life condition elevated if you want to be any good to anyone, or anything you love. If there is no one you love, perhaps it is something that is important to you. I have met people who had no real relational connection but they had companies or projects that meant the same to them as my kids mean to me. There is no judgement here, just answers.
Happiness is a choice. Not one that we always think we have control but it is a choice. The better you are at making that choice when things are not hectic, the better you will be at making that choice when the crap hits the fan. The Buddhists believe that at whatever condition they pass from this life, they return to it in the next, so their primary goal in life is to keep their life condition at a high level at all time because you never know when you pass. This did not really make sense to me until I thought about it from the stand point of LOA.
It comes down to the basic definition of what The Law of Attraction does. You attract to yourself the energy of what you feel. If we are all energy that comes from the source and returns to the source, then your feelings that have attracted that energy to you will continue to attract that energy to you when you wake from a sleep or if you happen to prescribe to the idea that we go non-physical at our “death” and since we are all part of the same energy, a different physical manifestation, but a part of our energy then can also be again manifested, it will attracting to it, what energy it had attracted prior to going non-physical. Deep isn’t it?
It does not matter if you believe in reincarnation, God, Source, or anything at all. The key here is that your goal in life should be to keep your life condition at the highest level you can, because you are a part of the energy that created, and keeps this Universe going, and the more of us who can keep our life condition high, the more positive the Universe can be. It starts with one person, and who knows, in a decade or sooner, maybe there will be a positive world where we concentrate on the good instead of the bad by default.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week we are going to go deep in to The Law of Attraction (LOA) from the ground up. So tighten up your seat belt and hang in there with me.
Basics. We are the highest form of being in this Universe. That is not an egotistical statement, rather it is a grateful fact. We come from a part of the energy that creates cosmos. By the fact that we can control what we think we have the power to tap into that power at will, if we know how to use it. You do it every day. When things are good, you are good, and you send out for more good vibrations. Then the Universe gives you what you want. If you are a student of this blog, and this concept, you even do this when things are not so good.
As I am typing this, I am sitting on a plane, delayed for 45 minutes for technical issues. This is my second delay today. Out of San Diego my plane had issues, and I would have missed my connection in Chicago, so they put me on this plane that got me to Houston so I could get to New York tonight. I am sitting here wondering how I attracted this.
The day started great. I chanted, had a great breakfast, kissed my wife and kids goodbye and headed to the airport. The reality is that, I really did not set any intention for my flight. I can get pissed off, and then I may attract my luggage getting lost, which by the way is already on its way to NY. Or I can make the best of it, and attempt to write a blog post. It is all in how you view your situation. I love the way Eckhart Tolle puts it. “In any situation you have 3 options: You can do something about it, you can remove yourself from the situation, or you can accept it. There is no need for getting pissed”.
Now to the point of this blog. It is good to want more. In fact if you are honest with yourself, that is your default setting. It really does not matter what or how much you have. As human beings we are conditioned to want more. This is because we are the creators of the leading edge that forms this Universe. If you suddenly go from driving a Dodge Caravan to driving a Porsche 911 Turbo, you will be amazed and happy for a while, but soon that becomes your normal comfort zone, and you will start to “want” something better, faster, newer. Something that is “more” than what you have. Historically you may have been told that is not a good feeling. Maybe you even were told that it is greedy.
I am here to tell you that you were lied to. It may not have been intentional. In fact, even right now in 2016, there are many people that feel that way. That is coming from a place of scarcity that sais if I have my more than “fair” share then someone else will have to do without. That is a bunch of $#@@ $#%&. There is no scarcity in this Universe besides the one that you impose on yourself. Dude, have you seen green vegetation growing in the middle of the desert? There are things in the depth of the ocean that would make us rethink the last sci fi movie we saw. There is no scarcity in the Universe, in any living thing except MAN.
The same gift that gives us control of our lives, can hold us back from the abundance that we are entitled to. We are creators of our destiny. The sad thing is that we can create it as large or as small as we wish, or “we think we should”. Do not contain your desires. Do not limit your goals. Do not short change your life. Because you are destined, to be the rulers of your life. Do not go by default thinking, you are taking what is someone else’s. EVERYONE can only control their own destiny. It seems like many control the few, but that is because the few allow that to happen. I am not talking about revolt, you understand. I am talking about thinking for yourself and taking charge of your mind. If the few controlled the masses, there would never be any opportunity to build wealth when the times are bad. That is not the case however. In fact many of the wealthiest incidences in our financial history happed during the times of economic down turns.
So take heart. You control your destiny by the use of The LOA. You can do whatever you dream, so you might as well dream big. Visualize your dreams as though you have them. Listen for inspiration and then TAKE ACTION ON THOSE INSPIRATIONS, because just as you can control your destiny, sitting on your butt indicates that you want more opportunity to sit on your butt.

Good day, and I hope you are having a great week. This week I wanted to explore the actions that you want to take when faced with disappointments, or are let down by people or organizations. In our Western world, it seems that the right action to facing disappointment is to return the favor, or complain. Many people will jump on their favorite social media outlet and either complain to their “friends” or disparage the party who disappointed them. I want to approach this situation from the perspective of The Law of Attraction (LOA).
As I deepen my study of Nichririn Buddhism, I also gain a deeper understanding of the LOA. If for example you happened to be disappointed at your work. Your boss is constantly mean to you. You have been overlooked for deserved promotions. Your colleagues do not appreciate you. It would be easy for you to retaliate by just cruising along, or jumping ship and going to a different institution. However, let’s explore the energy and vibration of such actions. If you retaliate, you are essentially asking for more opportunities to be disappointed because you are sending out a negative vibration. You cannot take retaliatory action without bringing the same type of attributes into your life. It is a Universal Law. Not knowing the law does not make you immune to it.
If you jump ship, it may or may not be a right choice for you. It all depends on the vibration and the feeling that is behind the action. Perhaps the Universe has other opportunities in store for you. Perhaps you needed a jump start, or a kick in the butt to expand yourself. Realize the reality that if you happened to do this because you are feeling like you are not being appreciated, this vibration will follow you wherever you go. This feeling of not being appreciated, is what you are putting out and your destination is irrelevant. The vibration and the feelings will follow you. You can end up working at Google, or Microsoft, or your favorite institution, and yet you will continue to have the opportunities to experience these feelings of disappointments. So what is the answer? What should you do?
Coincidently the Buddhist way of approaching these situations, are extremely similar to how you should handle them through the use of The Law of Attraction (LOA). The answer is simple in concept, yet difficult to do. You do the best you can where you are. You be the best person you are. You try to help even the people who have “let you down” because it is not about them. It is about you and the vibration that you send out. By being the best you can be, you are attracting the opportunities to shine the best within you and sooner or later someone will notice. This is not an easy practice to put into action, but it is the right thing to do. As you know the LOA states whatever vibration you put out, you attract the opportunities to experience those same situations. You do the work you do because of who you are. You put the effort that you put into your work because of who you are. If who you are is someone who just gives half @$$ed effort, then you will attracted the results of being mediocre. You will attract more situations and opportunities to be just ok, and you will even find evidence that it is the right thing to do. We will see what we want to see. Friends may suddenly empathize with you. You will see people in your same situation retaliating. You may think you have been passed over for promotions, yet the reality is that the Universe knows exactly the right time and the right situation for your best interest. You just never give up and continue to do what you are doing to the best of your abilities.
If you did not receive the rewards that you believe you deserved, rest assured that something better is on its way to you. This is not an easy pill to swallow when you are faced with the situation in your present moment. It is the TRUTH, and it will take time for this truth to sink in. It will take time for understanding to come, and if the disappointment is something that is happening to you right now, I advise you to take some time before you make any decisions on the future of your actions. Do not make rash decisions in the heat of being absorbed with emotions. Weigh your options carefully, and do your due diligence. Make the choice when you are calm and in the right frame of mind. You don’t want to make a choice which on the surface looks great but will end up costing you more disappointments.
I hope this makes sense. Please feel free to share this with anyone who may benefit from it, and as always comment on my Facebook page, and Twitter feed. Till next week, I wish you continued success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week I have some practical strategies for you that may help you save anywhere from few hundreds to thousands of dollars. What does this advice have to do with The Law of Attraction? Well how you do anything is how you do everything, I heard it said. If you pay attention, learn, and practice skills in one discipline you most likely will do the same in any discipline.
When it comes to money, there are probably as many emotions as there are people. No matter what your relationship with money, it cannot be argued that it is a tool that can make things easier or make things harder depending on how you employ it. The thing about wealthy people is that they are always learning and staying on top of strategies to make money work for them. The thing with people who struggle financially, is that they allow money to take over their life and make them work for it. I do not really care what you think about money, I just want to give you a single tool to help you have more of it. Just like any skill or tool, it is at the discretion of the student how and if they are going to make use of it.
If you happen to live in the United States, you have to pay property taxes twice per year on real-estate you own. These taxes help pay for our schools, emergency services, roads, transportation etc. I am not familiar with other countries, so I will limit my discussion to the United States and will leave my international audience to do their due diligence about the regulations in their country as I am sure something similar will exist in many countries.
When it comes to property taxes, we usually pay anywhere from 1 to 2 percent of the value of the home twice annually in taxes. If you happen to be in California that could be thousands to tens of thousands of dollars every year. Although paying taxes are not optional, knowing more about the laws can help you pay your “fair” share and not more than you need to. The savings can then be applied to thing that matter to you, or better yet be invested for delayed gratification than can mean exponentially more to you and your family.
There is a form (Pictured here) that is available through the City Hall office of every city, that literally challenges the value of your home as estimated by the government for the purpose of calculation of your property taxes. Let’s be honest the government is not exactly anxious to bring information to your attention that decreases the amount of taxes you are going to pay to them, and if you do not challenge the status quo you may be paying allot more than your share. In fact you may have received junk mail about the services that will do this for you for a fee. But it is so simple that you really do not need any of these services. For a couple of hours in a week, you can accomplish the same thing. For example when in 2008 the real-estate market in California tanked and my property was devalued by about 60% the value indicated on my property taxes was the same as the previous year. Hence I make it a habit to challenge that value every 2 years or so and see what happens. There is no cost to the process. It just takes a bit of action to go to the city hall of your city and ask for the form that challenges the stated value of your home as it applies to property taxes. Just as an example the savings in 2008 for me was over $3,000. That was a nice start to my kid’s educational investment fund.
The information needed on the forms are very basic. You obviously need to know the parcel id of the property and depending on the state you may or may not need to contact a realtor and ask them to provide you with the MLS number of some comps or comparable in your neighborhood. Again here taking the time to talk to the realtor and explaining the reason you are doing this is important as most realtors will want to inflate the value of the home where your purpose for this is to find the lowest comparable you can get your hands on. This process can take at most a couple of hours during your week, and in the end may save you some nice chunk of change.
I am curious to see if any of my readers were aware of this option, and if you were, did you ever actually take the time to fill out this form? What was the results? Are you going to try this this coming year? Please make a comment on the questions about this post I will post on my Facebook page.
I hope you enjoyed and benefited from this post. As always please feel free to share this with anyone who may benefit from this, and please comment on my Facebook page and Twitter feed about this post. As always I wishyou much success till next week.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. I want you to concentrate on this quote: “We ordinary people can see neither our own eyelashes, which are so close, nor the heavens in the distance…” This quote by Nichirin Daishonin a Buddhist monk is trying to reassure a friend’s wife in a letter explaining that the causes of happiness and suffering does not lie outside of us but within us. This blog is far from being a religious forum, I do however find supporting material for each weeks post in many different places and this week it happened to be present in a Buddhist Monk’s writings. Nichirin is believed by one of the Buddhist sects in Japan to be the “Buddha of latter day of the law”. He is credited with emphasizing and teaching The Buddha’s latter message written in the Lotus Sutra that all people are able to achieve enlightenment in their lifetime. This was a major bifurcation from the traditional religions of feudal Japan and even within Buddhism prior to the Lotus Sutra, the belief was that enlightenment took many lifetimes to attain.
What I find fascinating in this quote is the fact that many practitioners of The Law of Attraction (LOA), seem to fall prey to the same error. I know I have personally. The Law of Attraction (LOA) teaches us that we control our reality. ALL OF IT. We are, and have the same quality as the SOURCE of this Universe. This is said in different ways in many religious beliefs, but as LOA practitioners having faith is an advantage, yet it does not change the fact if you happen to rely on Science, or logic. LOA is proven with Quantum Physics. There is no doubt to its accuracy, and yet we keep on selling ourselves short.
The reason for being able to secure a parking space or a cup of coffee is that we think we can. From the stand point of LOA, there is no difference between a parking space and a Porsche 911 or a million dollars. None. We set those limitations. We cannot see that we are, connected and a part of the source of this entire Universe. Why can we do this and no other specie on this world can? Because we have free reign over our thoughts, and yet because it is so close, We cannot see our own eyelashes. The second part of the quote is also equally frustrating. We tend not to be able to see that which we want. We get so worked up and stuck in the details of how, that we just keep on attracting more and more opportunities to get worked up and wrapped up in the how when we should be concentrating on the absolute, and specific END RESULTS that we want to manifest. We cannot see the “heavens in the distance”.
Is it any wonder that the majority of people have struggled with using The LOA, all these years? Most people cannot get over the fact that first they have ALL THE POWER, and then they cannot even use the simple steps required to work the power. The system is perfect. The Universe has been revolving on the same system for billions of years. We want to fix the system instead of just use the system. It is our nature and perhaps a riddle or a cosmic joke. Most of us do not know what we don’t know, and when someone tries to tell us, we cannot possibly believe them because all our lives we have been told something contrary. We think we have to rely on something else. It is always the “others” that can. We have been told that it is “hard” or “out of our league”. Who are we to dream so big? How dare we imagine?
WELL IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP. Dude, this writing was written 3000 years ago!! You see the same theme in many of the world’s “accepted” religions. Why would all these smart scholars preach a lie? Why would our science point us to a lie? How could our cosmos be running on a lie? The answer is IT CAN NOT. It is a Universal LAW. It is precise. It is true, and whether you like it, believe it, or not matters not. You are bound by the same law. Yet because of this law you will find evidence to convince yourself that it is not true if you so desire. Crazy isn’t it? You get what you concentrate on. It is like the Universe is saying to you, I have given you all this power but if you don’t want it I will not force you to use it. It matters not weather you choose a life of abundance or scarcity. The Universe is not going to come and hold your hand or beg you to have abundance. It is your will to take or not to take action. So you might as well enjoy the ride because you are part of the whole thing, and just did not know it. How cool is that?
I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope you will share it with as many people as you can. This message needs to be understood, if we are to have a world filled with joy and abundance. Comment on my Facebook page and tweet me your thoughts on my twitter feed. Until next week, to your continued success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. My daughter is taking her first introductory lesson in guitar. My wife and I are not musical, so I am learning as she is. We had a guitar that I had bought many years ago and since this was her first attempt at music I thought before spending any money on a new guitar let’s see if she actually liked it. Having said that, since the guitar has been sitting in the garage for longer than my daughter has been alive, it desperately needed tuning. Being the practical father that I am, I asked my daughter to ask her teacher to tune it for her. To my surprise the teacher introduced us to an app that did that. I should have guessed right? In this age, there is an app for everything. Thank God for that because I could not tell a musical note from a howl of an owl to save my life. The app is called “Guitar Tuna” (pictured here), and you turn it on, put it close to the guitar and strum each string one by one. The measurement on the app will tell you if you need to tighten or loosen the strings by giving you a visual of how far off to the left or to the right of the cord you are. It was so easy and it worked every time.
We also need to tune our vibration, mind, and body from time to time, just like a musical instrument. Over time as you play an instrument it will get out of tune. Well as you go through your day to day life, being surrounded by all the negativity of mainstream media you need to tune yourself as well. That is where a set of affirmations, a little time to meditate, or situation reversers (pictures, music, notes that will remind you of good times) , will come handy.
For a quick tune up through, one of the easiest tools is a few well-chosen and well written affirmation statement that really resonates with you. You can choose to make up your own or use any saying that you like, and I will share with you two of my favorites. One is from the book The Master Key System which many think is the bases of the movie and the book The Secret. It goes this way “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy”. The other is one I came up with and it goes “I am healthy, wealthy, happy, and at peace”. Saying this over and over for about 5, 10, or 15 minutes will have the same effect as tuning a guitar. Try it when you are traveling in a car, or walking around. Say it out loud for the best effect. You have heard me say this over and over in this blog, there is a magic in saying an affirmation out loud. There is just something that triggers in your brain when you hear yourself speak. It is healing and it is powerful.
When you say the affirmation of your choosing, think of what you want to feel like. Maybe visualize a goal. Say it with conviction and with emphasis. What you don’t want this exercise to be like is just mumbling your affirmation over and over with no feeling. The Law of Attraction (LOA) works on your feeling and not the words. If you are saying you are wealthy but are feeling “oh man this is so bull $%#&^, this does not really work” then that is what you are attracting”. The words are a trigger, and the feeling you are feeling is the fuel for what you will manifest and how you will re-tune yourself. You can be feeling like you have a problem at work, and will start to visualize the end outcome you want. To have it perfectly resolved to your best interest at the perfect time, and then go about chanting your affirmation for 5 minutes. Get into it. Get louder if it will pump you up. Get calmer and rhythmic if you are pissed and need to calm down. Use the information I gave you in the past blog to adjust your volume to what you want to accomplish. Try this for a few weeks, and see how awesome you will feel. How refreshed you can become.
At least one day a week, I will go and chant for 1 hour with like-minded friends. I feel so energized and whole after such session. I hope this is helpful and as always please feel free to share it with anyone who can benefit from it. Leave me feedback on my Facebook page and / or tweet me on my twitter feed to let me know how this works. As always I hope this was helpful and I wish you success till next week.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This is going to be a very important blog post, because as you may know I have struggled with my temper all my life. Recently in my study of Buddhism, I have come to a conclusion that should have been obvious, and yet beyond my perception at the time. Let me set this up by referring to what Anthony Robbins teaches in his seminars. He said “that your state, your body’s state, dictates your emotion”. We also see this decades ago in the works of W. Clement stone where we read that in his classes for his sales people when he wanted them to be excited he would bring them in front of the class and have them repeat the mantra “if you want to be excited, act excited”. We know that we can send out emotions with our bodies, our voices and our emotions. In this particular post I will use anger as an example, but you can use it for any negative habit. I have noticed that right before I get upset, my voice starts to get louder and as I start to get more and more worked up, or face more resistance, I start to yell. In fact I actually sometimes work myself up by increasing the volume of my voice or tensing my muscles and this is usually a precursor to getting angry. All of these, I want you to realize however, are tools that we can use if we know how to control them.
I have been doing a little experiment. Whenever I start to get angry or upset with someone, I actually decrease the volume of my voice. If I have the presence of mind I will try to relax my body, but that is a rarity. I can however, decrease the volume and cadence of my speech more easily. At first it may not stop me from getting angry but it shortens the duration of my temper significantly. It helps me get back from that amygdala hijack, where my animal brain has taken over and completely bypassed my thinking brain, to the cerebral way of thinking and actually realizing that what I am doing is not productive. This way I can bring myself back to the present and start to do some productive techniques like segment intending, and visualizing to remedy the situation.
Being a public speaker I naturally relay on the power of my voice to get my message across. I change the tone and inflection of my voice when I try to get attention or make a point. Unfortunately that has back fired for me when I get angry, since I am usually projecting my voice. That is more in line with getting excited, and in my case getting upset and angry when the stimuli presents itself, prolonging the negative emotion. I have to work harder in keeping my volume down. You should try it. When you start talking in a lower volume of voice, the excitement goes away and you start to calm down. You don’t see anybody meditating by screaming out loud. Even when there are chanting a mantra, it is usually a calm and soft chant like “ohm”. So all these physical vibrations that you send out can affect your emotions, and being the deliberate manifestors that we are, we can control our emotions with the control over our physical tools like our voices, and our muscles.
I want you to try to this experiment for the next 20 days. Whenever you are getting upset or angry try to decrease the volume of your voice. If you notice that you are tensing your facial muscles, specially your jaw, consciously relax it. We have allot of muscles in our face and during stress those muscles tense up and contribute to the loss of control. But the most important and easiest thing to do is to decrease your volume. Try to whisper while angry. It is funny when you think about it. It will significantly aid you in coming back and gaining the control of your thoughts and eventually subdue the anger. Eventually you will be making this a habit and you will be more in tune with your emotions and can divert it even before it starts.
If you are dealing with depression or some other sadness by contrast, you want to increase the volume of your voice and the pace of your talking. Getting yourself excited to come out of the negative emotions. Essentially what you want to do is to use your tools to go the opposite way of what the emotion is causing your body to do. In anger we are excited and are charged so we want to bring ourselves down a level. When we are sad, we are in the low vibration and we want to get ourselves high on the vibrational level. The voice is a really easy and simple tool we can control to achieve control over the less obvious tools like our emotions and feelings. Try it one step at a time and leave messages on my Facebook page and my twitter on how you used this technique and how it turned out. As always feel free to share this blog with anyone who may need it and I wish you success until next week.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. Recently I went for an annual eye exam for my glasses, and since this was a new doctor he asked if I wanted to have my pupils dilated to check out the eye in more detail. I said sure. He said it is a good thing to do every 2 years or so to make sure there are no tumors or issues, and it is a way to give the doctor an opportunity to do a more detailed examination of the eye, but the dilation will last 5 hours so I cannot read or be exposed to too much light. The pupils are so large and they let in so much light for the doctor to see the background of the eye, that it causes your vision to be blurry specially with small words or signs. You cannot read, or distinguish fine patterns.
What does this mean from The Law of Attraction (LOA) stand point and what does it have to do with LOA? Well very much like one of the past blog post, “Don’t Put your High Beams on”, this week’s post deals with balance, and comes in response to questions I get all the time. I am routinely asked “why don’t ideas come to us in their totality?” “Why can’t I see the end?” Well I am glad you asked because it is much like having your eyes dilated. Too much light will only blur your vision, and confuse you. The LOA works with mathematical precision when you follow the rules. What are those rules? Let’s check them out, because they are simple, but not easy.
The basic rule is that you take action on the opportunities as they present themselves, as the result of your desires and visualizations. As you take a step, another door opens, and opportunities will present themselves for you to take action. As you go through this door, then another, and yet another door begin to open in a step-wise fashion leading you step by step towards the culmination of your desires. Soon you end up manifesting your desire or something better comes along. This step by step way of leading you through the process is designed to allow you to move along in the perfect speed, and perfect fashion. It is specially this way with those of us who are new to using the LOA. By new I mean if you have not been using this process for longer than a decade. This way you will not take a bigger bite than you can chew. It is also designed for you to not get tempted on concentrating on the “how” of the big picture. It is perfect the way it works. Follow it the way it is flowing. When you try to force the issue things usually do not turn out for the best.
As humans we naturally want what we can’t see. We want to know what we don’t know and many times we want it yesterday. Well that is not necessarily the way the Universe works. The Universe more orderly that we may imagine. At least when it comes to being a deliberate manifestor, this is the way to go about things. Take heart though, as you get better with the use of LOA, your vision also expands. The Universe is a fantastic mentor, and knows how much to show, at exactly the right time for your best interest.
Visualize, desire, see your manifestations in their fruition and see yourself with them, and then when opportunities come through, take action even though you may not see the end in sight. This is the law. I hope this makes sense to you and as always please feel free to share this blog with anyone who may benefit from it. As always please feel free to comment on my Facebook page or Twitter feed. Till next week, to your continued success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Today I want to talk to you frankly about your goals, aspirations, and visualizations, and where you stand with those currently. If you have been a reader of this blog, I am going to go on the premise that you know how to set goals, all 6 steps of it. You know how to visualize and you know how to use The Law of Attraction (LOA). If this premise is not correct I have various resources for you. Obviously this blog is one. Start with the introductory posts which I have a link for on the lower right side of this page. If you have problems with goal setting, my first original paper back Road Map To Life has detailed explanation of how to set and achieve goals. All of these resources are available here on this page or the product tab of this blog.
The purpose of this particular post is to talk to those of you who know exactly how to set and achieve goals, know how to visualize, and are essentially deliberate manifesters. To you I want to say wherever you are in your progress towards those goals, be AT JOY with it. You know what you have to do, and sometimes everyone will go through a rut. There will be times when I don’t feel like writing, posting, exercising. The fact that these times do happen to highly focused people creates a sense of guilt for them. You have heard me post on this blog before that the sense of guilt does nothing to help you achieve your goals. It actually attract more opportunities for you to feel guilty. In fact when you are feeling guilty about the fact that you did not go and exercise, or did not write a certain number of pages, the feelings are actually going to attract more opportunities to procrastinate and not do what you are supposed to do.
I am not telling you not be accountable to yourself. What I am telling you is to be at ease with the decision that you have made at that particular time. If you don’t feel like exercising, that is a decision you are making. Now this follows the premise that you are disciplined enough and normally you will do what needs to be done to achieve your goals. It is a completely different discussion if you have never achieved any goals, you are a constant procrastinator, and you are not focused at all. The discussion today is with those of you who at times just don’t have a good day. What I want you to realize is that it is OK. We are all humans. At the time perhaps not going to work out brought more joy to you than going to work out. Embrace that JOY, and it will bring you more opportunities to feel joyous, which will actually come from achieving your goals, so you will be more likely to attend your next exercise session or pump out 20 more pages in the next hour.
We all know how LOA works. The ultimate goal is to reach for the feeling of joy. You want to reach for good feelings, that way you will attract more opportunities to feel good. Achieving your goals and dreams will bring you joy, so by extrapolation you will manifest opportunities to reach and succeed in your goals. I hope this makes sense. This is not an excuse not to do the things you need to do. It is a fact about being 100 percent responsible and OK with the decisions you make at the time.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week, I am tackling communication and linking it to The Law of Attraction (LOA), providing an opportunity to learn and use this lesson for success. I am sure you have heard of the phrase “read between the lines”. If you have not, it basically means that you need to make your own conclusion about the meanings of conversations not just by what is said directly but what you think is meant which can be completely different depending on who you are talking to and the situation in which you find yourself. It is an art. It is tricky. I try to avoid it at all costs. I think you should too, which is why I am dedicating this week’s blog posting to the subject.
Let me give you an example that happened to me recently. I occasionally share my own life experiences here, to the dismay of my wife, not because I want to show off, but because the transparency will give my readers a sense of reality, and concreteness of the fact that this stuff actually does work. Here is the situation. I am preparing to take a shower, and as I step into the shower, I see a dead moth at the corner of the shower. I don’t know how that thing got there. I have little children, so maybe the screen door was left open etc. It is not relevant to the situation. I go to grab a tissue paper to pick up the thing before I start my shower, and my wife walks in and asks what am I doing? I say “there is a moth in the shower, and I think it has been there for a while, so I am throwing it out”. She turns to me and says “so your saying I don’t clean?” Holly crap, where did that come from? So now I am back pedaling and becoming defensive and saying crap like “no, I did not say anything like that” blah, blah, blah.
Now my wife is usually very intuitive, but she has been under allot stress this particular week and I guess I can now, in hind side, see the way things progressed. Her vibration was of stress and conflict, and she attracted to her more opportunity to have conflict. If both of us were not in tune with how things work, you can see how that whole situation could erupt into a full blown argument over really nothing significant. All because we read between the lines. Gladly because we are deliberate creators, usually one or both of us figures out the situation. We looked at each other and laughed. We both realized that something was pushing us off of our balance point.
There is a lot of room when we try to interpret what people are telling us. If we cannot take people at their word, then all of our emotions will play a part in deciding what is the meaning of the conversation. If we are a deliberate creator and we “always” think about things occurring for our best interest then all is well, but even those of us who are in tune with the LOA, sometimes are off our game. In those instances we cannot help but bring our lower vibration into the meaning and inadvertently may see thing that are not there. Because we are in tune, things manifest quicker for us. That is good and not so good. Remember what we concentrate on we create opportunities to experience more and more in our reality. You have to be clear in your conversation and you need to take people at their word. You may think that is a naïve way of thinking. So be it. If your view of the word is that “people will not say what they mean” then you will attract opportunities to prove yourself correct. If you choose to believe people at their word then, more often than not, you will also prove yourself correct. It is law.
I just find it more simple to speak clearly about what I mean, and have the same expectation of people. Just like goals, if your communication is not clear then your meaning is not clear, and your conclusions will not be the way you want them to be. Clarity is the key in goals, communication, moral values, and pretty much everything that matters. Be clear. Don’t guess at what people mean. If you are confused, ask open ended questions until you are clear about what they mean. By the same token do not be vague and assume people know what you mean (LADIES THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SPECIALLY) . People are not mind readers. This is especially true in relationships. Do not get lazy no matter how long you have had the relationship. In business or personal relationship, laziness, and taking the other for granted spells disaster (GUYS, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SPECIALLY).

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Recently I was talking with one of my long time students and a topic came up that prompted this post. This is a person who is as versed in the use of and the principals of The Law of Attraction (LOA) as I am. Someone in fact, with whom I bounce ideas off when I am confused. It seemed that something had made her upset. When I asked what was the matter she explained it to me this way. A longtime friend of hers who used to confide in her with her problems and used to use her as a shoulder to cry on had become distant and was instead confiding in a mutual friend of theirs. Would you believe my friends felt left out and sad because she cared very much for her friend and their friendship?
Being an outside observer, I was instantly able to see the truth and tried to gently point it out, but even then the ingrained habits were getting in the way of my friend seeing the truth for what it was even though intellectually she understood the logic. Let me explain it here so anyone with similar feeling can benefit from this. I am willing to bet that if this type of feeling is happening to someone as intuitive as my friend, then there may be others that feel the same way.
When we get good at using LOA and get into the vortex of high vibration, we naturally will attract situations that match our vibration. It is a Universal Law. My friend was deliberately manifesting what she wanted in her life and NOT what she did not want. Therefore the pain, sorrow, and wallowing in self-pity was no longer being attracted to her like with most people who go about by default. So The Universe, or Source found a way to take those discussions away from her reality and hence the opportunity of being a “shoulder to cry on” for her friends went away. And at the same time her friend found a new confidant that was more on her level. It is not a mean or cruel thing. It is a law as precise as laws of mathematics. You do X and Y will happen. You concentrate on crap and crap will come into your life. You concentrate on joy and joy will come into your life. Simple to someone who is not in the middle of it. Much more difficult when you are dealing with it and especially when you are dealing with loved ones.
To her resistant mind that reaches for negativity for protection, the lie was that “if I don’t listen to my friend’s pain then I am not a good friend”. This belief is reinforced by our upbringing and is very strong. She felt bad for a few days. Instead of being happy that it all worked out for everyone, she felt “left out”. She wanted to bring herself DOWN vibrationally just to be included. Crazy isn’t it? Well no actually. It is a natural human nature to be caring. If she is not careful, she will start to change her manifestations. But as I mentioned in my last post (Highbeams), it was not the time for me to blind her with my high beams. She was not at the correct vibration. She needs time and I need to approach her slowly. Starting with gratitude that her friend has a person to talk to. That her own life is full of joy. That her vibration is protecting her from negativity. Slowly bringing her to the current state of joy and bliss. As Abraham-Hicks teach, reaching for a small step that feels a little better.
The message here is this, be careful. Be careful of your wishes. Analyze things you think are sad and make sure you are not just falling into the trap of beliefs that keep you stuck. You are not being a bad friend by being happy. You are not cold hearted if you cannot relate anymore to the sad things of your previous “life”. Be a friend and if the Universe protects you then that is a win-win for everyone. Then accept the gift.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. As I was driving in the desert this week, occasionally I was in front of a car who had forgotten to lower their high beams. It was very distracting, and irritating at first and as time went on, it became intolerable and I either had to change lanes or pass other cars just to get out of their presence.
This made me think about what I teach, what I study, and how I relate to people. Even light in the darkness can cause people to withdraw, and not want to associate with us. This is so true when I was a new teacher of The Law of Attraction (LOA). I was so excited to “shine” the proverbial “light” on everyone I met. Just like the high beams though, there usually were two different reactions. If they were at the same vibration, i.e. ready for the knowledge, my “high beams” would light the darkness in our path since we were side by side. We both benefited. However, when the person was not ready, I can see how I was like a car with their high beams in the rear-view mirror annoying the crap out of them. That never accomplished anything and I may have even pushed them away from the LOA.
When I was younger in U.C.L.A. I used to feel this way with people who wanted to share their religious beliefs with me on campus. From their point of view, they wanted to share the “light”, and I was closed minded, or comfortable with my own beliefs and just felt irritated so the message was not received. I am happy to say I am more open minded and exhibit more grace now to all beliefs.
The point I am stressing here is the need for care and caution. We deliberate creators are very excited about what we know is possible for all human beings. Not everyone thought is ready for it on our schedule. It is very much like mentorship. Care needs to be applied in sharing the knowledge because, being human, I felt bad when after spending an hour explaining LOA in detail, the other person looked like a deer in the headlights or would rather talk about rearranging their socks drawer. I would take it personally and that would bring me down. It would take me days to get over it. I would wonder what “I was doing wrong?”, “why could I not convey this magical ability to people and get them as excited as I was?”. I have realized that mentors are approached by students in most cases and not the other way around. It was not personal. They were just not ready for the information.
It is a UNIVERSAL LAW and that is why the same applied to spirituality and LOA. I find sharing the 40,000 foot view with people I think are ready is the good start. This way I would not overwhelm them and turn them off from the beginning. I would let the basics sink in and when they are ready, they would approach me for more. This is the reason why this blog is so passive. I only market it on my Twitter about 5 times per week and on my LOA Facebook page once per week. Whomever is on the right receiving vibration will get attracted to the right posts, at the right time. Whomever needs the books and coaching will contact me at the right time. It is really a very cool way to work. And it is THE LAW.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. This week, I have a video blog for you and I will go into one of the things that usually throws us into the negativity vibration, and that is “disappointments”. I am going to cover the concepts, give you ways to handle it, and share a few personal examples to make the whole thing nice an clear. Yes, I have had and will have disappointments as well, lol. I hope you enjoy it. As always please feel free to share this and don’t forget to go to the Facebook page to twitter, and comment and post any questions you may have and I will answer them. Enjoy and till next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Recently I was in a leadership course that focused on many aspects of influencing people not necessarily from a position of authority, but within groups of similar position colleagues. As we discussed the techniques and principles of leadership I was pleasantly surprised to see how much of the modern leadership principals utilize the principles of The Law of Attraction (LOA), which inspired this week’s post.
Perhaps the most important thing I learned in this course, was the fact that leadership is different depending on the “readiness level” of the people you are trying to influence. You lead people who have never done a task differently than people who are advanced in their skill levels. From the LOA standpoint it is similar to vibrational levels of where you are in comparison to those you are trying to influence. Let me give you the example of my mother that I have used before. My mother suffered from blindness 2 months before I got married. It was a bizarre and rare situation that had her own immune system attack the optic nerve but there was nothing wrong with the eye itself. This was very early on in my journey with the Law of Attraction. Being very excited and enthusiastic I kept on trying to “make” my mother believe that she could heal herself using visualization and principles of LOA, but I had little effect on her. She was a nurse for 30 years, and very much set in her own ways. When I discuss this with people who are trying to help loved ones understand and use the principles of LOA, I equate this to being on the balcony of the 50th floor of a building and trying to scream down to the person who is on the 1st floor. It jus will not happen. We are vibrationally on different levels. Only 2 things can happen. Either they have to come up or we have to go down. Using the wrong leadership style without considering the level of the people we want to influence is frustrating and rarely successful. From The LOA perspective, I as the practitioner have to decide if I want to come to the lower vibration (more negative) in order to bring the person up to the level where we can discuss it? There is no easy answer to this. It is a personal choice, taking into consideration that whatever we concentrate on is what we attract to ourselves.
Concentration on negativity will only bring more opportunities for negativity to come to us. If this concept is difficult for you to grasp, you need to read some of the basic posts that I have highlighted on the lower right side of this blog’s main page where the dates are: entitled “some basic posts for new readers”. In leadership you can change your style to meet the readiness level of those you are trying to influence but, be aware of the LOA aspect as well and make sure that in your style you are not moving yourself to the negative vibration.
Another concept that was stressed by experienced leaders was the concept of “celebrating your wins”. This is really near and dear to the foundation of LOA. As I mentioned before we will manifest what we concentrate on. This is law. It is not what I think, or you think. It is a Universal Law as accurate as mathematics or physics. Our leadership panel mentioned that even in times of challenges you need to make sure you and your team keep things in perspective and celebrate your wins. This is a no brainer, but by all means not an easy task to do. Let’s look at it from the LOA perspective. When you are concentrating on the wins, you are sending the message to the Universe that you want more opportunities to celebrate wins. By law you will attract more opportunities to win, and sooner rather than later you will be overcoming the challenges.
Another concept that we discussed was setting the vision, letting your team know it clearly, and then getting out of their way and supporting them. This is so key to anything you are working on. Having a focused and shared vision where everyone is clear on where we are and where we are going is a must. As many teachers of LOA mention, you cannot reach your destination if you have no idea where you are and where you are going. Supporting your team and getting out of their way is also key, as in The LOA the “how” is not your job. When I say the how is not your job, I do not mean you do not make plans and take action. Remember that as opportunities will come to you, you do need to take actions. Just don’t be so stuck on the plan that you cannot take feedback and adjust course. Set the focus with your visualization, feel the way you would feel when the goal is achieved, and with all your senses know that it is done. Clarity is the another foundation of success in leadership as well as in using The LOA. Make sure not to mistake, allowing for lack of action. Action is very important and if you are confused by this, again take a look at many of the earlier posts on this site.
Lastly I wanted to make sure to point out that leaders know that there will be challenges and obstacles. Challenges are how leaders are made. People who overcome adversity in a productive manner are the ones who stand out and become leaders. From LOA point of view you have heard me say there is no failure. When something you have been visualizing and concentrating towards, cleared your resistances on, and have total belief that will happen, does not go your way there are 2 reasons. One, is that something much better is coming your way and the Universe is covering you, as you concentrate on the end results only and not the how. The second reason is that what you are concentrating on is NOT in your best interest, and again the Source is protecting you. You have to have faith and belief that this law works with exact precision without exception. It is always looking out for your best interest and when you try to force the issue you will usually do yourself more harm than good in the long run.
I found this course really productive and practical and I am very happy that I could relate it for you in this blog post to cover the concepts and the background from The LOA perspective. Please feel free to share this with anyone who can benefit and as always I look forwards to hearing from you on my Facebook page and Twitter feed. Till next week, to your continued success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Recently I have been studying meditation and chanting, specifically in relations to Buddhism. Even though I have meditated off and on all my life through my martial arts training and being a medical professional am aware of the benefits of the practice, I have to admit my recent findings made many things fit into place perfectly in regards to The Law of Attraction (LOA).
A few months ago a new SGI Buddhism center opened in my local town. They had some Buddhism 101 introductory classes and being a lifelong learner I attended a few of them. The class opened by a description of Nichirin, a monk who originated this particular type of study. I was surprised to learn that the last teaching of the Buddha written in the Lotus Sutra concentrated on the concept that all human being are capable of infinite potential. Specifically that all humans are equally capable of this achievement. This was something that was very rare in those ancient times when casts systems and societal ranks were the norm. The concept that by our thoughts we shape our destiny. Does this sound familiar? This was about 3000 years ago. Nichirin concentrated on these writings about 750 years ago and he believed that by chanting the title of the Lotus Sutra regularly a person would actually clean their Karmic self. Clean from what you might ask? During our life we humans are constantly putting ourselves down. We are constantly criticizing ourselves, and are criticized by people who are important in our lives. Many of these criticisms come from people who have our “best interest” at heart. Yet all that builds on itself and if you wil,l muddies our Karma and that prevents us from achieving our potential. It is like the dirt weighs us down from achieving any success. It is like trying to run with excess weights attached to our waists. As I listened to the explanation, it seemed like what we in the study of LOA call resistance. Nichirin taught that through sound vibration, specifically in front of a Gohunzun, a person literally peels away the vibrational dirt like layers of onion, cleansing their Karma, and clearing their resistance so they can attract all they want into their lives.
On the plane ride from my vacation, I was reading David G’s book on meditation. He also explained that meditation was like cleaning our subconscious. He used the example of a cell phone that was constantly ringing on loud. Meditation was like lowering the volume or, with regular practice even allowing us to put it on vibrate so we can move on and concentrate on life without being tuned out or interrupted. This would allow a clearing the interruptions and resistance that hinders us.
Interestingly the Nichirin Buddhism lectures used the same examples I use when I talk about The Law of Attraction (LOA). Examples like energy flow, electricity, and Universal laws. I felt like I was in a discussion group on LOA, instead of a Buddhism class. It was a great experience.
Whatever our beliefs, the tool that is meditation focuses the mind, allows access to clearing resistance, and helps control and clarify our visions. All are critical if we are to use LOA to create the reality we want. All are needed to control our outbursts of emotion that can send us deep down the negative vibrational tunnel. It, like any tool, can be used or ignored. I am sharing with you the information and will leave it to you to decide if you want to use it or not.
After this realization, I personally am making meditation a priority in my life. It is an exercise that will make my mind stronger and that will make my use of LOA principals more effective. I hope this makes sense, and is useful for you. I hope this made you think about adding meditation to your arsenal if you have not thus far, and if you have, to become more disciplined in its regular use. As always please feel free to share this with anyone who may benefit from it. Leave me comments or questions on my Facebook page or on my Twitter feed. Till next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week I am sharing a really bad day where I lost it. My scarcity trigger is activated whenever I feel like I am being cheated and specifically when I can't fight it or do anything about it. Such incident happened in Cancun on my vacation at the Dolphin Discovery. They charged my family double the cost of the entire activity just to get our photos. I was helpless because I wanted the pictures since they do not allow you to bring your own camera, and at the same time I did not want to give this place any more of my business. What ensued was a series of mistakes on my part vibrationally that just sent the whole day into a negative tale spin.
I am sharing this with you for 2 reasons. One is of course for the obvious fact that loosing your cool is not really productive. The 2nd one, is so you can realize that even though I have been teaching The Law of Attraction (LOA) for over 6 years, I am not infallible. Everyone makes mistakes. Tomorrow is a new day and we can start all over. Give yourself a break if you happen to make a mistake like I did. Enjoy the video. Make sure to post comments on my Facebook Page and Twitter Feed.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. Last week I was in Nashville, TN and while downtown enjoying the variety of live music, I notices something that relates to the topics we discuss here with regards to success and The Law of Attraction (LOA). The artists that perform at the various bars, rely largely on tips. There were many ways that they approached this. Some had a Tip Jar in front of the stage. Many repeatedly mentioned that they “only are compensated by tips” and asked for donations after every few songs. Many took requests for donations. One band in particular though did all that but also something a little more which demonstrated the power of expectation.
The lead singer, a young lady about 4’ 2”, would come down the stage and walk from table to table with the tip jar in her hand and converse with the patrons after every 30 or so minutes of playing. She would ask “where are you guys from? How are you enjoying Nashville? What are you doing in town?” and all the time she would push out her tip jar, not in a rude, or pushy way, but in an honest EXPECTATION of what she deserved. She would not move, until she received what she wanted, and again not in an obnogtious way, but something in her intent just came across as different and I rarely saw people not tipping her. I also found myself readily tipping her and so did all my colleagues at the table.
Later that night, I wanted to see what it was that compelled me to tip readily when at the other bars, I did not feel the same inclination? I really could not put my finger on it. The only thing that I could come up with was the fact that she genuinely expected to be tipped for the service she had performed. There did not seem to be any hesitancy or lack of faith in her intend. She was confident, and poised. She was talented sure, but so where the hundreds of bands that were playing in the various bars lining Broadway. It was not just talent. It was not the alcohol. It was something in the vibration that she exuded. IT WAS EXPECTATION.
This is very important for us when we set out to achieving desired result. Had she came from a place of uncertainty, or lack, I doubt the results would have been as prosperous, no pun intended. When we send out the vibration of desire, especially when it is something we consider “large” the doubt is, the one great resistance that will delay the manifestation of what we want. I put the word LARGE in quotes because it is only our beliefs about a desire that will make it big or small. To the universe manifesting a million dollars is the same as manifesting a parking space, is the same as manifesting a cup of coffee. It is only us, that give it the degree of difficulty. It is a very hard thing to grasp and I also struggle with it at times. I just have to keep on reminding myself that the Source does not have or set limitation for us. The Source always protects us sure, but there is no limitation in what we can or cannot manifest. It is only our upbringing that has taught, and ingrained in us the degrees of what is and what is not possible, and by extrapolation what is hard and takes a long time and what is simple and does not.
To A multi-millionaire who has issues with his family life, manifesting a half a million dollar deal may be a piece of cake but relating to his children may seem an arduous task. To you and I, relating to our kids is instantaneous. It is all a matter of perspective, and yes, in some ways practice and comfort. Please remember it is not the difficulty level, but how comfortable we feel and what expectation we have.
Expect what you desire. Expect it as yours and coming to you. Be ready to let it go, if it is not for your best interest. Know that the Universe will take care of that part. You just follow the opportunities and take action as they are presented to you and know that the best thing for you at the right time will happen. I hope this makes sense.
