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. If you have questions on this post or any other please leave me a comment on the Facebook link of this post, and tweet me on my Twitterfeed. Till next week, to your continued success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week, I wanted to touch base on a term called GRACE and see how it applies from the stand point of The Law of Attraction (LOA). I want to continue the thought from last week and attempt to show that even in times when we don’t think we should be nice, it is to our best interest to do so.
Do you see then that as you go about your day, you can build the reservoir of your BANKED GRACE? When you give the person who does not deserve it the benefit of the doubt and choose to see the good in them, you are sending the vibration to the Universe that you want more situations to feel that great positive emotion, and yes when you happen to need it, there is plenty of that vibration available for you.
In our world of fast pace electronic information, it is easy to find fault with people all over the world. After all that is the only thing that will make the news. The next time you are about to judge someone, take a minute and without judging just display some grace. When you judge and get angry and emotional, you are only hurting yourself anyway. The person on the other side of the world, or even in front of you will not be changed by your antagonistic opinions. By default we all get defensive when people judge us. By giving unmerited assistance and understanding though, you can make a difference and an impression, both of which are just the icing on the cake because just like forgiveness, grace is for you and not for the person you are giving it to. You are creating a vibration to be positive and it feels allot better than being judgmental.
I hope this makes sense to you. I hope you benefit from it. Feel free to share this post with anyone who may need it. Comment on my Facebook page and Twitter feed, and until next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. As I am writing this post, there are allot of emotions all over the country over tragedies of Police officers being killed in Dallas, and many incidents of African American youths being killed by Police officers in different states. There is allot of hate going on right now. There is allot of anger and need for justice and even revenge on people's minds. When we as humans feel these type of feelings, it is coming from a part of us that is designed to protect us. The same instinctual region that protected us from the Dinosaurs. It is an ancient part of our DNA.
If these instincts are allowed to attract more and more opportunities, as it happens when we concentrate on these emotions more and more, then the manifestations are actions that are animalistic and revengeful. Even though in the short term these actions seem "FAIR" or "JUST" or "WHAT WE WANT", in the long run these actions only lead to a negative feedback loop that just brings more and more hate. The only people coming out, on top in these situations are the various media channels who love to latch on to stories of death, and malice, and the hate mongers.
You wont want to hear what I believe needs to be said. You won't want to hear what I believe the correct course of action should be. You are wrapped as I am in strong emotions. It is understandable. It is right. It is normal. But you HAVE TO RAISE THE VIBRATION. You have to do this the closer to the incidences you happen to be, because you are now sending major waves of vibrations. I cannot in any imaginable way feel what the families of all the victims feel, and will not pretend that I understand, but I implore you to listen not with intellect, but with your heart and allow it to expand and you will realize that there is only one answer. The answer is FORGIVENESS.
Forgive DOES NOT mean no consequences. Forgive DOES NOT mean forget. Forgive has nothing to do with justice. FORGIVENESS is for YOU to be able to move off the negativity and get back to manifesting what you want, instead of what don't want.
In this picture, I am standing next to the "SURVIVOR TREE" at the Ground Zero memorial in New York. This was the 8' stump of the only living thing left near the twin towers when they came down. The stump was taken and cared for and over a decade grew into what you see. The only energy that plants and animals can give is by instinct survival. Do you think if this tree was mad, and angry at the senseless acts that lead to the tragedy of 9/11 it could have had the energy to heal? The answer is a resounding "No". Only good energy heals. You cannot heal with anger and revenge. You cannot heal with pain and despair. The road BACK to healing and positive manifestation begins with Forgiveness.
Please pass on this message. Our nation is right now in the midst of too much negativity, and I am here to tell you that one person can make a difference. One person can change their own vibration and share it with another person who can then share it with another person and on and on...One by one send this post to others, share and pay it forwards. Practice forgiveness and use the hashtag #FORGIVENSSMATTERS to build a discussion and sharing and healing. Tweet #FORGIVENSSMATTERS, use it on your Facebook and link my Facebook page to it here. Tweet me on your posts. Blog about it. Talk it out. There is healing in the power of spoken word, when used productively. We need to get this out and change the negative vibration and we can do this one person, one share, one tweet, and one FB post at a time. The situation started slow and expanded into this hate. It can also be STOPPED by one person passing along the message, then another, then another. #forgivenssmatters.
I hope this makes you think and help you deal with the emotionally charged issues in our country. I hope you find some peace, or at least another way of dealing with the situations as apposed to relying on anger. Let me know what you think on my Facebook page and Twiter. Till next week, to your success and healing.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week, and had a wonderful 4th of July. This week I want to concentrate on something that we all should know, but most of the time do not give a second thought to. That is, the words we used on our routine conversations every day. I am going to start with one phrase which recently has gained popularity specially with the younger people, “it’s no problem”.
For example I do a transaction with someone and I say “thank you” and they reply “no problem”. Someone keeps the door open for me, and I say “thank you,” and they reply “no problem”. At first glance it may not seem like a big deal, and yet when you break it down to its core essence from the point of The Law of Attraction (LOA), we know the Universe does not recognize words of negation. So when you say “No problems” as opposed to “ you’re welcome” what are you concentrating on? That is right, Problems. It is the same thing as saying “I don’t want any bills” or “I don’t want to be sick”. These sentences concentrate on the “bills” and “illness”. You want to keep your attention on the things that matter, and how you respond with your words. Words have power. When you vocalize with your words, and hear yourself saying on a daily bases saying “no problem” over and over you are actually attracting the vibration of “problem” to you.
Similar things to concentrate on and be aware of is when you are asked “how are you doing?” or “how are you?”. When the response is “not too bad” or “hanging in there”, you see that the concentration is on “bad” and the mere “hanging in there”, a response that I argue comes from lack instead of prosperity, as opposed to saying “good” or “great”. We need to concentrate on how we respond to people every day in conversations and analyze what we are attracting by our words, and keep ourselves in line with the words we want to see in our reality and not those we want to avoid.
People turn to me and in response to this suggestion ask “so should I just lie about how I feel?” My answer to you is Yes. An absolute, resounding yes. Go ahead and fake it till you make it. Yes, go ahead and reaffirm that you want to feel great, and not feel like crap. If this means you are going to lie to yourself, then so be it. I however, don’t see it this way. I see it as actually taking ACTION to get myself on a higher and higher vibration to feeling better and having what I want.
