The Power of Appreciation Meets the Law of Attraction

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert EinsteinPractice Appreciation. You’ve heard it all your life – Count your Blessings. Appreciate what you already have and watch it multiply before your eyes. What is this phenomenon? Why does this happen? Well, it has to do with the fact that you’re a broadcasting station sending out a signal that is answered in kind. As you practice directing the high frequency Energy of Appreciation, by the Law of Attraction, even more fantastic people and things will appear in your life. As appreciation becomes your dominant vibration, you’ll spend less time in the lower states, feeling bad, feeling sad, and settling for less than you desire.

Attitude of Gratitude. A good way to become more appreciative is to keep a gratitude journal in which you write down things that you’re grateful for each day. Here’s the magic: Keeping a gratitude journal orients you to naturally look for things to appreciate. And this gratitude orientation will attract into your life more things to appreciate, which will set up a chain of events to keep the good times rolling.

Cultivate an attitude of gratitude and the Universe will present you with a dazzling array of fascinating people and delightful circumstances. If you forgo appreciation and give in to blaming and complaining, the Cosmic Café will understand your order to be – I’d like more things to complain about, please. Then you’ll be amazed at how clever the Cosmic chefs can be in cooking up more things for you to complain about. In the Cosmic Café, you get what you vibrate.

Become a World-Class Appreciator. Make a list of the people and things you appreciate and pull out the list when you need a lift. What do you love about your life? Give your full attention to all the things you cherish about your life. Think about the people you love and make a list of what you love about them. The result will be a feeling of overflowing good fortune, joy and appreciation.

Notice how your vibration improves as you bring into your awareness things that you enjoy. Little things – a green light…a puffy cloud…a butterfly…a flower…a song…a delicious meal… There are endless things to be grateful for. Set your radar for anything that summons up the high vibration of appreciation. Choosing the joy of appreciation is a most powerful tool in raising your vibration, in coming into alignment with your desires, in connecting with Source Energy for a fabulous dose of Well-Being and clarity.

“I celebrate myself, and sing myself.” – Walt Whitman.

Appreciate Yourself! Whatever you believe about yourself is expressed to the ends of the Universe. You are wonderful, brilliant, and worthy of all good things – just as you are. So relax, be playful, have fun, laugh, be good to YOU. Focus on all the wonderful things there are to appreciate about YOU. In the entire Universe, there has never been anyone exactly like you. Celebrate, appreciate, love, and feel good about YOU.

As you apply the power of appreciation in your life today and every day, you will quickly and easily magnetize into your life everything you could ever desire! How’s that for something to appreciate?

Why Most Cafe Coffee is Awful

Just before Xmas, my sister in law shelled out several thousand dollars for a very nice coffee machine for entertaining visitors at her house.

Now I love coffee, so I was interested to see if it would taste as good as the coffee they served up at my local cafes.

So did it live up to the test?

You bet it did.


Hard to believe, isn’t it?

Especially since all she received was a quick bit of training from her cousins who used to run a fish & chip shop.

Now I don’t know about you, but there are a few reasons I choose one cafe over another…

And probably most importantly… COFFEE!

And here’s the funny thing – creating a good coffee doesn’t cost much – in fact, from my understanding it’s well under 50c for the ingredients.

So why on earth wouldn’t you get the best possible coffee on earth… and learn to brew a decent cup? I don’t have an answer to that. But I can only assume that most cafe owners simply aren’t willing to go the extra mile.

Of course, some people will disagree with me. For instance, one woman I had dinner with last year believed everyone has different taste in coffee.

But I disagree.

That’s like saying most people would prefer to own a beat up old 1963 Holden over a brand new Mercedes.

People appreciate quality.

So ask yourself the question – how does this ‘coffee shop metaphor’ apply to your business?

What product or service is everyone else doing a “sub standard” job of offering which if you just improved your quality, would instantly boost your business?

It could be customer service. It could be including music in your waiting room (and perhaps offering refreshments and a decent cup of coffee) if you’re a dentist.

It could be cleaning and detailing your customer’s car with your compliments if you’re a mechanic.

Take the time to think about how you can wow your customers.

Because there really are only two factors to success in business.

1. Knowing how to create profit-pulling advertising which makes the phone ring.
2. ‘Wowing’ your customers once they call your office.

So think about how you can make it happen today.

If the Law of Attraction Really Works, Why Didn’t I Get What I Want?

“Never think of failure for what we think will come about.” – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

The Fine Print. According to the Law of Attraction, I can be and do and have whatever I desire. Why, then, do I have an unhappy marriage / a painful physical condition / an overdrawn bank account? Well, I guess it’s time to read the fine print. The Law of Attraction contract states that you attract into your Life whatever you focus on – whether you want it or not. Every time you think about something with strong emotion, you are saying to the Universe – “More of this, please!”

The Dreaded I CAN’T Monster. Have you ever passionately wanted something that just didn’t happen? You wanted it deeply, you concentrated on it, you prayed, you visualized, you took action, but alas it would not budge. What’s the mystery? It simply means that, although you truly wanted it, you stayed in the feeling place of not having it. You kept focusing on the lack, on how unhappy you were about NOT having it. Somewhere in your vibration lurked the dreaded I CAN’T monster. So your message to the Universe was actually – “I want this thing with all my heart, but I know I can’t have it.”

Eliminate Your Big But. Another reason we don’t get what we want is because of the Big But Syndrome – I want this, but… This syndrome consists of contradictory thoughts – such as doubt, worry, impatience, unworthiness, indecision, and fear – that prevent or stall the manifestation of our desires. By the way, these big buts are always lies, damn lies, and stinking thinking. They are never true. Here are some examples of the Big But Syndrome:

I want it, but:
· I’m a bad person
· I don’t deserve it
· I never get what I want
· I always have to settle for less than I truly desire
· I have really heavy karma
· I can’t afford it
· My feng shui is all wrong
· I’m too young / old / heavy / thin / tall / short / rich / poor
· I eat too many carbs

What does your list of big buts look like? What reasons are you using to explain why you don’t have what you want?

“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up!” – Jim Valvano

Hang in There – It’s Not Over. Who has not experienced the pain of failing to get what they want? It hurts to be disappointed, but the answer is not to give up on our desires. Desires are only painful when we don’t know how to fulfill them. Not knowing how to fulfill our desires might even be considered the human dilemma. If you hang in there and cling to the knowledge that there is something better waiting for you around the corner, then you call forth something better.

Meg experienced not being selected for a job she had applied for. Impressively, she absolutely refused to get discouraged. She insisted on keeping her thoughts on knowing that something better was out there for her. It wasn’t over. Two weeks later she was offered an even better job in the same department – a brand new position that hadn’t even been created when she applied for the previous position. I believe they created it just for her, but, clearly, she had attracted this great job by maintaining a hopeful, confident vibration. By continuing to expect it, she invited it in.

I had a similar experience in a furniture store as I was looking for a dresser and mirror to match my country French bedroom set. I found the perfect dresser and mirror in a consignment shop, however, the owner insisted that they would only sell it as a set with the bed and bedside tables which I already had. It wasn’t over when I was told that they never break up sets because two days later another customer came in wanting everything except the dresser and mirror. It was fun to hear the owner call and say – “You’ll never believe what happened.”

Of course, I believed what happened and fully understood that the Law of Attraction had arranged the perfect solution for everyone. So, no matter what, stay open. Expect what you want and allow the Universe to present you with the perfect circumstances in the perfect way at the perfect time. And, remember, EWOP – Everything Works Out Perfectly!

How to Amp Up the Power of Law of Attraction

“Think of the power that’s in the universe – moving the earth, growing the trees. That’s the same power within you, if you’ll only have the courage and the will to use it.” – from Charlie Chaplin’s movie, Limelight

How can we make the Law of Attraction work even more powerfully in our lives? How can we amp up our manifesting power? What is the magic ingredient that adds the driving force, the Big Mo, the alchemy to the attraction process? It is emotion. And the intensity of our emotion determines our power of attraction.

We activate our thoughts and give them life by adding emotion. The classic example of the power of intense emotion is the 100-pound woman who lifts a 4,000-pound car to free her child who is trapped beneath it. When we want something as unequivocally as this mother wants to save her child, our strength and ability increase exponentially and we become invincible.

Do you have any idea what a powerful being you are? Do you realize that the entire Universe is at your service? You are a Master of the Universe, fully empowered to create your life in exact accord with your thoughts and feelings. And what activates and increases your power to create? Strong desire.

You can align with the object of your desire by adding emotional power, by getting excited about it, by wanting it with passion, by getting clarity about it and offering a signal as focused as a laser beam. We attract in accordance with our vibrational alignment. To harmonize vibrationally with your desire, find the feeling place of your desire by imagining as vividly as possible that you are living your dream NOW.

As you begin to EXPECT good things, that expectation acts as a powerful attractor to bring even more good things into your life. Energize your desires by refocusing with passion, clarity and determination, by stating confidently: I am healthy! I am wealthy! Everybody loves me! I’m always so lucky! Everything comes easily to me! But most of all, declare with all your heart – I am absolutely and eternally wonderful and worthy of everything I desire.

By focusing with strong emotion, your power of attraction is amplified. Here are some great ways to energize your desires and amp up your power:

  • direct your thoughts with focus and clarity
  • decide to feel good and maintain a sky high vibration
  • feel appreciation
  • make up your mind
  • set your intention
  • dream, imagine and visualize
  • believe and expect
  • infuse your desire with passion and enthusiasm

Emotion is the magic ingredient that will make the Law of Attraction work even more powerfully in your life. Emotion in the form of strong desire gives you the power to design and create your destiny. With emotion, clarity and focus, you are a powerful magnet for attracting into your life anything and everything you desire!
