Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week, I want to talk to you about rituals. What are they? A ritual "is a sequence of activities involving gestures, words, and objects, performed in a sequestered place, and performed according to set sequence. Why am I spending this week’s blog post on this subject? Because as part of the mission to teach you to use of The Law of Attraction (LOA) more effectively, it is important to use rituals.
You see you can write your affirmations, and lists, and even read them over and over quickly every day, but even though that is better than doing nothing, there is something missing. When you do the same thing, bring up the “reverence” of the action, take time to feel the feelings of what you want, and do this over and over in the same place, you are amplifying the vibration you send out to the Universe.
Think about it, is it better for me to take my time every morning, and go into a set place, calming myself, bringing the joy, and feeling of gratitude, and then sit and visualize what I want, taking the time to imagine how I feel when I have it, hearing the sounds, and feeling the feelings? Or jump out of bed and haphazardly write 10 things I am thankful for, and then run off to read my e-mails for the day?
I am deliberately making a drastic contrast here to make a point. Many times when I am asked about why The LOA has not worked for people, I have to ask deep question about how the person is using and practicing The LOA. Often times, when people first stumble or deliberately study The Law of Attraction, they are gun ho about doing the visualization and feeling the feelings, and doing it in a setting of being calm, and at peace. If you have been introduced to LOA at a seminar or event, you are surrounded by like-minded people, who have now added their energy to yours. The environment is conducive to well-being. Then you go home and for a few days, maybe few weeks, do the process with the residual energy from the event still motivating you, and when you don’t see anything happening you either give up or do not put any effort into their process. Then people may just do things like machines. Machines, and animals do not utilize the Law of Attraction because they do not have the control over their emotions. You can tweet that one if you want. As humans we have the ability to DIRECT our thoughts, and by extrapolation we can DIRECT and control, with practice, the EMOTIONS that those thoughts elicit. The process of rituals is seen as sacred but it does not have to have a religious connotation. It just has to have an emotional component to it.As long as you give it the attention you would give any kind of ritual, then you will gain a better result from your manifestations. The keeping of a set place is discussed in previous (see Sanctuary)
posts and will give you a boost as you and your subconscious will associate the place with the feeling of getting into manifesting “ritual” so as you practice it more and more your body and subconscious will get more and more used to it and you can reach your vibration and be in “the zone” quicker and quicker.
I hope this post was helpful and provided you with an additional step to make your manifestation practices highly productive. As always please feel free to share this and comment on my Facebook page and send me Tweets on my Twitter page. Till next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great start to the week. This week I am going to explore the reason behind the fact that it usually takes many people to hit rock bottom before they manage to succeed. This is just my opinion and based on extrapolation of the Universal Facts of The Law of Attraction (LOA). I think at the very least it will make you think about success in different terms.
We know that the LOA works weather we happen to know about it or not or weather we believe it or not. It is a Universal Law. Like gravity and electricity it is just there to be used or abused. If you have been a student of the LOA you also know that Thoughts will lead you to express Emotions that will attract to them opportunities for more of that emotion to manifest. Another words FEELINGS tell the Universe what we WANT and what we attract. How does this jive with the fact that many of the greatest and most successful people in the world have come from humble beginnings, and rock bottom circumstances? Why do we keep on reading and hearing about rags to riches stories? Stick with me and let’s dive into the simple way that LOA works.
Abraham-Hicks teachings make it really simple by explaining that the key to our success and getting what we want is not to try to go from misery to joy, but rather the trick is taking small steps and reaching for what feels a little better. Humans can take an immense amount of abuse, and torture. Yet there is a certain point where we just cannot tolerate anymore. There is an absolute bottom for each person, where we say enough. At that point there are only few options. To fight back or to give up. It is rare for people to reach that level under normal conditions in Western society. Even with nothing, there are infrastructures in place to help. That is why rags to riches is rare. There are plenty of opportunities which allow people to just tolerate their circumstance.
Once the bottom is reached however, something clicks. When you cannot tolerate anymore, you change your vibration. Change directions from the feelings that are negative to ones that feel a bit better. Of course when you are at the bottom everything SEEMS negative, but from the Universe’s perspective, anger is better or higher vibration than depression. So as you hang on to those feelings that make your feel more empowered, or a little better and keep on changing them for better and better, you ride the manifestation of more and more opportunities to get better and better. Many people do this unknowingly. They get pissed, then they find blame, and hope, then they have positive expectation, then they have optimism, etc. until they succeed.
More often though we get stuck in a one-step forwards and two step back situation. A depressed person gets pissed. They start to feel a little better, but how does society react to anger? The feedback from their “real WORLD” is “don’t be angry, or anger is bad”. So they go back to being depressed, and now hopeless. At some point though most people will have enough and will start to reach again for something that feels a little better. Depending on how they work with this gradual shift in their feelings, they can either get out of the slump and even succeed or go back and forth with frustration. If the person can continue to reach for better and better feelings, they will accidentally touch upon the GREAT SECRET OF THE LAW OF ATTRACTION. At some point they start to give gratitude, and start to think about other things i.e. visualize, and that will bring feelings of excitement. If they have support, or if they are strong enough or even if they are just fed up enough they will break the chain of negativity and continue to ride the feeling up to better and better manifestations.
The awesome thing is that good feelings do NOT HAVE A CEILING. How cool is that? Just like gravity. If you had told me 30 years ago that people would be literally walking up walls, I would tell you, you were smoking something. But Google parkour or Free-running and you will see what the human body is capable of doing. The only ceiling on the success you can achieve is placed there by you, as you grow and react to new challenges. So how are you going to react? More importantly are you going to wait until you can’t take it anymore to start to change your feeling for ones that feel just a little bit better?

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. Recently I saw on my Linked In news feed a video of a young lady with the heading “millennial rant goes viral”. While I thought the message was well articulated, it got me thinking about what we are concentrating and sharing. This is the topic that I want to call your attention to this week. Do we have the right to criticize? Should we, even if we do? And What are the Law of Attraction (LOA) implication of criticism?
Let’s start with the bottom line premise of LOA. 100% personal responsibility. Remember that the concepts, teachings, and the tools we use in the Law of Attraction are based on the energy we send out for our own personal manifestation and desires. We cannot want or apply the LOA for others, or to others. We can only guide people to seek and use it for themselves. I have noticed it has always been easy to criticize people. It is not a Millennial, GenX, GenY, Baby boomer, or any other generational tendency. Sometimes it is meant well. At other times it is a defense mechanism to mask shortcomings. I also want to be clear, when I am talking about criticism, I am talking about the unsolicited feedback. I am not talking about the time when you reach out to a mentor or trusted advisor and ask for help. I am talking about sharing our unfounded, often poorly researched or thought-out comments about people in an attempt to be humorous, or for a topic of debate. I personally have to work on stopping this type of action. It is sending out the vibration I do not want around me.
It does not matter what I may be criticizing. If I have not accomplished, or dealt with the issue I attempt to criticize, I most definitely am not qualified to criticize it. Let’s use the Presidential elections. Regardless of what I think about the candidates, I have not been in their shoes running for the highest office of the nation, therefore even though it is my right to vote for my candidate based on my values, and thoughts about the future of my country, I do not have the right to criticize them. I would go and say even voicing comments on the negative is something I want to get away from. Why? Let’s break it down.
I attract whatever I give attention to. Unsolicited criticism is coming from a place of insecurity and lack. It is saying I am better than you, or I know more than you, or I am afraid of what you will do. Even if this is true, the vibration of the message is negative. It is far from gratitude. In essence it will attract opportunities where I can feel better than someone else, or fearful, which is manifestation of something that does not feel good and is not what I want. If all was well and I had my desires I would not have the NEED to feel like I am better than someone else. The whole point of “I have to be better than someone else” is the competitive scarcity mentality.
It does not matter if I think someone is lazy, or feels wrongfully entitled, or is rude, or crass, or will be ruining my country. All of these will attract to me situations where I will see lazy, entitled, rude, crass, and ruin for my country. By giving the situation the attention of criticism I am attracting more opportunity to criticize which is usually something I DO NOT WANT, otherwise why would I criticize. Why in the world would I want to attract the crap into my life just for the opportunity to criticize????
Do you now see when I titled this Bad JU JU, what I meant? You may mean well, but you are only setting yourself up for more disharmony by criticizing. Envision the world and your day as you want, and not the way you don’t want it. Go about visualizing and concentrating on the things that make your heart sing. Pay gratitude for the wonderful things in your life, your community, your country and the world. It really makes no difference who becomes the President, unless you want to give that your attention. If you are running for President, then yes that is a big deal for you. Otherwise, for most of us it really is a matter of wanting the best for our country, and visualizing and concentrating on the good and not trying to FIGHT THE BAD, because fighting the bad will only attract more stuff to fight. Do you see the negative feedback loop? I hope so.
I hope this made sense to you. Use your social media platform for giving attention and strength to what you want, and not what you don’t want. You have a tremendous amount of power to elicit emotions with social media. Use that power responsibly. Comment and share your ideas on my Facebook page and Twitter feed. With love, and gratitude, I wish you success till next week.

Good day and I intend for you to have a great week. This week, I want to clarify the meaning of action in manifestation of our desires when we meet with obstacles and challenges. I am sure you have heard it said, emotion is energy in motion. I am also confident you have seen cartoon drawings of different moods. What is the common animation of a person who is depressed, or sad? Usually hunched over, droopy, slow moving right? What is the opposite of that? Excitement is usually synonymous with being animated, and vibrant, jovial and energetic.
I am going to ask you to try something with me. This has happened to me many times when I am encountering a challenge that catches me off guard or when I think I am being taken advantage of. The times when I feed into the feeling of anger, and negativity, it is much harder for me to regain my balance. But sometimes, and I have done this out of sarcasm and not with much foresight, I smile, or go out of my way to “nice them to death”. Even that sarcastic smile, very quickly dissolves the feelings of anger and negativity, if and only if I go with it, and not try to relive the situation by talking about it, or relaying the situation to others for the benefit of getting agreement or sympathy.
You see, taking inspired action is very easy when you have been going after your dreams, and desires. The same effort will minimize your problem when you are caught in the negativity vortex. I have spoken to you about the term called Amygdala hijack taught in Men Skills classes. When a trigger bypasses your rational thought process and makes you react, and blow off your lid, it takes a minimum of 20 minutes for you to calm down and regain your balance. Coming from a Law of Attraction (LOA) perspective, that is 20 minutes of high energy negative vibrations you are sending into the Universe that is attracting more of like opportunities for you get pissed off. Now who wants that right? Yet we do it over and over, almost every day and wonder how we got so messed up?
Being aware that this happens is a first step. Taking action to not get caught into the vortex as early as possible is the next step. So when things are starting to push you towards negativity, like for example when my kids start arguing and doing the exact opposite of what I asked them to do, I have to realize that I am about to get sucked into the negativity vortex. Then I have to do something. It does not have to be a huge thing. I mentioned before faking a wide grinning smile for a start. The more you move your body though, the easier it is to get back to balance. Do jumping jacks, walk and quack like a duck, whatever weird and ridiculous ACTION, you can think of and are comfortable doing, do it. The more ridiculous the better because it will interrupt the process. It is like when you watch the surfing championships in Hawaii, and a surfer is about to get wiped out in those huge waves, and a jet ski comes and pulls him out of harm’s way. The ridiculous, and crazy action is that jet ski. The more funny and crazy, and yes stupid you make the physical action, the more power the jet ski has to pull you away from the vortex of negativity back to calm waters.
Try it. The next time you are about to get pissed at a situation or someone. Grin from ear to ear, and take action. If you feel embarrassed or are in a situation where you can’t jump up and down, and make clucking noises, go out of your way to do something nice for someone. Hold the door open for 5 or six people in a row. Act like you are a servant. Go with the sarcasm because sarcasm is a higher vibration than anger, depression and rage. It is pulling you in the right direction, and that is what you want. You are reaching for something that feels a little better than where you are now, as fast as you can.
When you are pissed, it is hard to THINK YOURSELF OUT OF IT. Truly energy in motion will change your emotion. YOU MUST REMEMBER THOUGH NOT TO RELIVE THE SITUATION WHILE YOU ARE MOVING PHYSICALLY. Don’t walk like a chicken and say, “%$%$^& I did not get what I wanted”. Just move and breath, and concentrate on whatever is the most ridiculous thing you can think of doing right there and then. It works. It works really well, and as you do this, you are training your body and mind and pretty soon that grin will do the job in most situation because it is anchored with the crazy actions you do, and will be sufficient to interrupt the negative pattern.
