The Abundant Mind

by limitlesslaura

I have been on FIRE this week with a brilliance and light inside! The words came to me in meditation “abundant mind”

which led me to meditate on of the keys you hold to effortless creation in your life!

It’s an inner knowing that we are LIMITLESS Spiritual Beings having an adventure here on Earth for a very short time…

It’s a BLINK really, a mere blip on the Universal radar screen.

Have you thought about how HUGE your personal BOUNTY is?

We have so much available to us that is already made, already a done deal, moving across the universal plane..

All you have to do is TUNE IN TO IT!

You are pure Energy, and it’s simply a matter or lining up with Source Energy…

Appreciating Beauty,

Vibrating at the highest level that is good for you.

DECIDE what you want, DECIDE what you do not want.

Make a SPECIFIC list.

Create beautiful LISTS, Creation Lists, of exactly what you want to paint your world to look like.

It really can BE that EASY.

Watch this beautiful video from our friends known as Abraham

 

I would love your comments on the “abundant mind” and what those words mean to you!

Does it make you feel powerful?

Intimidated? Confident? Hopeful? All of that?

It is said that we only tap into a tiny fraction of our minds, and what is truly possible. What do you think stands in our way?

21 Day Meditation Challenge

Starting on November 5th Deepak Chopra began a wonderful

“21 Day Abundance Meditation Challenge”

I invite you to join me and my husband Larry as well as many like minded friends who are lifting the mass consciousness in positive thought and vibration.

Here are some of the centering thoughts of the past few days:

Day One:

” Today, behold all the abundance that surrounds me.”

Day Two

“I create my personal abundance from an infinite source.”

Day Three

Today, I focus on what I want to attract into my life.”

Day Four

“From this moment forward, I invite unlimited abundance into my life.”

Day Five

“Today, I embrace my potential to be, do, and have whatever I can dream.”

Day Six

“Everything I desire is within me.”

Day Seven

“I use my conscious intention to manifest my dreams.”

There is nothing more powerful than imagination, visualization and progressively growing your thoughts, and vibrations. Using this amazing power of imagination, you can play the powerful Prosperity Game to attract limitless abundance into your life.

When you can consistently meditate on one purpose, one vision, and one goal, in a way that is AS IF IT IS ALREADY HAPPENING, and send out those vibrations, eventually your subconscious mind believes these things to be the truth. The Universe sets in motion whatever it has to in order to make that picture a reality in your world.

It really does not matter what it is. For instance, if I am an Olympic gymnast, and I practice 18 hours a day and night with my coach, and get into bed at night and visualize myself perfectly completing my routines, systematically over, and over  with precision.

I imagine the scoreboard reading 16.00…and the crowd cheering for me. The look on my parent’s faces, and the feelings in my heart of joy (actually FEELING IT). Myself and my teammates are standing on the podium with the Olympic Gold Medals  being put over our heads.

What is the likelihood that this Imagined Vision and Vibration will happen? VERY likely…

I can bet you money that Gabby Douglas did this very thing, every day, several times a day in her mind! She probably did it hundreds of times in her mind, and The Universe began to align itself with this reality.

Her body was performing the activity, the practice, the excellence….her mind was seeing the end result.

Prosperity is very much the same. Most of us have seen the movie “The Secret”, in which the gentleman speaks of his focus on “bills in the mail” and attracting more of the same because he constantly worried about not having ENOUGH money to pay his bills that kept coming in the mail!

This man changed one small thing in his mindset, one word really, to CHECKS instead of bills, and started to visualize “checks in the mail” every time he went to his mailbox.

By making the change of focus, he was flooded with checks and prosperity, and now received more checks in the mail than he could ever imagine!!

Here is a POWERFUL Game you can play, that will forever change your attraction of money, if you commit to it, and faithfully do it daily.

The Prosperity Game:

It will help you expand your imagination and enhance the flow of money and abundance into your life, and you will be blown away by the magic and occurrences that happen while you are playing this game.  This game is all about getting you to EXPAND your vibrations, because that what the Law of Attraction responds to.

Expect A Miracle

by limitlesslaura

A very curious thing happened this week. You know what it’s like when you feel pulled toward a book, a song, a place or something that your spirit needs?  Since my mother passed away in December, I would not put it past her to be hanging around me and pointing the way to the lesson of the week!

Let me back up. When I think of the personal development foundation and legacy I was born into, I get goosebumps!! I feel a true responsibility to carry on the new thought my parents held so dear. In 1958, they were married by Dr Ernest Holmes, the founder of The Church of Religious Science or as it is now referred to Science of Mind.  I was very blessed to be part of a progressive home of thinkers and dreamers, who studied everything from Transcendental Meditation and astrology to The Course in Miracles. Certain concepts stuck with me more than others, and one in particular, the thought that you can change your life by changing your thoughts. More specifically, I was absolutely touched at an early age by something that felt like MAGIC to me. Once I knew I could change my life by changing my thoughts, I started to feel a knowing deep inside me, that we all had more power inside us than we could ever imagine, and it was all about thoughts, feelings, and seeing miracles manifest our lives.

I remember bumping into a strange little book of my mom’s entitled: I Desire and Image-The Expect A Miracle Book by Janet Levy and starting to read it. The book has a connection to a miracle I witnessed just prior to reading it.  I was about 16 at the time, and had just returned from a visit to Santa Fe New Mexico to my sister’s. We had gone to a famous little church (pictured above) where the legend was that the a miracle was performed there centuries before, and people came from all around to visit this little church. In the back of the church is a little room with a dirt hole in the ground, about a foot deep. As the miracle legend goes, a miracle occured at this hole in the ground. People would put some of dirt on their sick and injured family members, and they would be healed. It’s curious to everyone that the hole has NEVER grown in size, though THOUSANDS, perhaps, millions have gone through this church and taken some of the sacred miraculous earth.Why do I mention this peculiar hole in the ground? I mention it in the context of miracles. [click to continue…]

One of my very favorite spiritual teachers, Dr Wayne Dyer says:  “Doing what you love is the cornerstone of abundance”.  If you look into many spiritual masters and teachings over time, this is always a common thread.

Following our star, our bliss, true north, and listening to the intuition inside, or your inner guide that speaks to us to find the thing we are meant to do with our lives. The immediate thought that comes to mind is, how many people out there are actually doing it?

If you are fortunate enough, you get to live out your dreams and do what you love for a living and get paid for it. That’s the ultimate in self realization. Some people go their whole lives not knowing what their true life’s love is, and simply search because they feel an emptiness or yearning. Others know exactly what their passion is, but may be stuck in a job, when what they really are meant to be doing for a living is singing or being an artist, or having their own business. Which do you think is worse, never knowing your passion, or never realizing it? It’s an interesting question, isn’t it?

The times in my life that I have listened carefully and answered that yearning voice inside to move toward what I love have brought great success and joy for me. The consequences to ignoring that powerful gift of intuition almost always deeply affects me in some way. Most recently in the last year, I went against this gnawing inner voice and worked where I was being warned not to, and the outcome for me was very painful.  Later many other colleagues confirmed this same experience. I learned a great lesson. The lesson may not show up immediately, but there’s always a lesson, or some way that God shows me that it’s NOT where I am supposed to be, and it’s not what I am supposed to be doing with my life. I can bet you that if you look at your own life, you’ll find this as well. This deep intuition or knowing is something we can cultivate if we learn to tap into it. What is it? It’s a direct line to your subconscious mind, which is connected to God and The Universe. You can also call it The Holy Ghost, Angels or your spiritual guides depending on your religious affiliations. It’s all the same thing. It can be your greatest life management tool, and can lead you to a life of satisfying, peaceful abundance. [click to continue…]

Did you know that’s there’s actually a very simple formula you can follow to manifest ANYTHING you want? It’s true! A dear friend and mentor of mine taught me this at least 13 years ago and it has worked to manifest health, happiness, money, better relationships, houses, cars, and all kinds of great things…even an all expense paid Cruise to Belize with and upgrade to the balcony suite !

Here’s how it works

1. DECIDE – Make a concrete decision that this thing is 100% what you WANT. Declare it to The Universe! Get out a piece of paper and write “I now decide to manifest our dream home on the ocean in California by December 2013″  (as an example) Sign it, and date it. Make copies of it. Shrink a couple down and have them laminated, so you can carry them in your purse or pocket to read 3 times a day. Once you make a decision, it is set in motion, and the die is cast. Decisions drive some of the most pivotal events in our lives, and when you think about it, nothing you have ever done, had or received in your life happened without a decision being made.

2. BELIEVE –See yourself with your manifestation in your minds eye, and believe it with all your emotional strength. Attaching STRONG EMOTION to the decision and the picture in your mind’s eye makes it 10 times more likely for you to manifest it. The reason for this is that the attraction vibration is being sent out as if it is already happening! Your belief is so strong that it’s as if your decision is already REAL. FEEL it down to your toes, like a real experience. Paint a picture, and make it as vivid as possible. Get detailed, and add more details every time you sit down to visualize it. Athletes do this. Olympic swimmers like Michael Phelps swim the meets in their minds over and over before they ever get to the events. Apollo Anton Ono, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan and others practiced in their minds as much as on the court or fields.

3. CLEAR NEGATIVES! Negatives are fear and doubt based. Negative thoughts, words and feelings push away your miracle . Whatever you think, you are right. If you need to sit down and pour them out, get it over with. Write down all the reasons why you don’t think you deserve it, why you think it won’t happen etc. All of these things stand in your way. Get it ALL out. Then get a metal trash can or go to your fireplace and set a match to this paper and burn it!! Watch it burn away!! Those are the insignificant fears and doubts than stood in your way..that are now gone. They were only words in the first place. Just thoughts.

4. CANCEL “The HOW”

You may have no idea how any of this is going to happen! All you know is that you DECIDED and declared that you wanted this miracle, and you wanted it more than anything else. Get out another sheet of paper and draw a circle with the word “HOW” in the middle. Now draw a big, fat line through the middle on the diagonal. You are cancelling the HOW. Don’t worry about how you’re going to manifest it!! Just GET BUSY and do your part! Work, help others, BE MAGNIFICENT YOU!! The rest takes care of itself. The minute you go into fear and doubt…this manifestation stops. Just stay in the FLOW of not knowing how it will happen and trust that it will. BELIEVE and keep SEEING it with emotion. Your miracle will manifest on its time, not yours. This is simply how The Law of Attraction works.

Always STAY IN GRATITUDE and LOVE. Constantly feel and focus on the blessings you HAVE received because its that loving feeling, that happiness that attracts more of the same goodness to you!  Keep love and gratitude in your heart – praise God and the universe for your successes and allow Him to guide you to more. Listen to the quiet voice within and be at peace. The laws of The Universe are mysterious and wonderous, and they work!

When was the last time you felt that SPARK, like your life was on fire and your personal “mojo” was so “on” you could create magic, and awesomeness with everything you touched? When was the last time you spent the day doing absolutely everything you wanted, and everything went like someone was following you around with magic fairy dust preparing your day to go exactly the way you dreamed or even better? This is called being in the zone, flow, being in the vortex, connected to source, or in the field of intention. I like to say I’m in flow.

All of us have times when we can slip into mediocrity..but to live our dreams we must never settle for it!!

Being in flow is the opposite of mediocrity, it’s the place where your point of attraction lies, where the subconscious mind meets your Higher Power, Source Energy, or God.  It is in this place where the decisions you make to become all of who you are, become realized. There is no small thought here, or even a whiff of mediocrity.

We all get those slumpy, slightly stuck times. Sometimes it’s the result of a simple lack of creativity, and other times it can be something much greater, like a full on life slump, with depression, fatigue, and “the blahs”.  What can you do to snap out of it and move into fabulousness? How do you get that magic fairy dust back in your life? It’s much easier than you think.

6 Ways to Go from Mediocrity to Magic

1. RISK What have you been DREADING? What’s that one thing you’ve been procrastinating, and in your heart you know the accomplishment will advance you personally and thereby professionally? There’s nothing like jumping in the pool when you can barely swim, are afraid, or in this case might be a little rusty at it. I don’t know WHAT my mother was thinking, but when I was 4 years old she enrolled me in one of those swim schools! I vaguely remember being thrown in the pool, but I remember more vividly being out on the ocean on our sailboat at a very young age and feeling safe, because I knew how to swim. You KNOW what it is..JUST DO IT.

2. STOP SETTLING Do you stand up for what’s right? Do you stand up for yourself? If you feel you have not gotten the proper service in a store or restaurant, are you vocal, and do you go to the manager? When you settle on the little things in life, you tend to settle on the big ones too.  If this sounds like you, you might not even know you’ve been doing it. It’s about your self-worth. You must, must, must, view yourself as the MAGNIFICENT person that you are!

3. EXCHANGE MEDIOCRE for MAGICAL- So many people are out there living plain, drab lives that they hate. They are just getting up every morning and “going through the motions”, going to work and “getting through the day” and coming home to “zone out” in front of the cable tv, 24/7, 365, year after year. These are the complacent people who deserve A SHOCK to their system. Watch this short video. Many of them didn’t start out this way. At one time they had big dreams, an open mind, and a twinkle in their eye. By making a decision to redesign your life, become all that you are, and fulfill your dreams, you are saying NO to mediocrity forever. To take it one step further, reach out to these people and SHOW THEM the WAY! Your life will IGNITE with inspiration and magic, simply by the Law of Attraction.

4.DECIDE & DECLARE! to live the life of your dreams, even if you’re not there yet! The latin root of the word decide means “to cut off”. You are cutting off any other possibility of how you want your life to look. If you are TRULY SERIOUS (down to your toes) about the decision, what starts to happen is uncanny. Not only will you begin to be pulled away from mediocrity, but everything that’s part of your positive decision begins to be drawn toward you as if by MAGIC. Sometimes it really seems magical, and the more you believe, the more magical it gets! A true declaration to The Universe says “I mean business”, and I believe. The Universe conspires to rearrange itself to fit the pictures in your mind.

5.GET ON PURPOSE Do you know what your purpose is? It’s a pretty important thing to know, and if you don’t know it, you can get buried in a pile of distractions, going in circles, because you have no clear direction or reason for doing what you love most. If you are not at the point of getting to do what you love for a living, at the minimum, know what’s most important to you, where you are going and the reasons you’re going there. There is no greater SPARK than a big purpose that’s driving you!

6. STEP INTO YOUR POWER Everyone has an unlimited supply of personal power. If you’re in a slump, the switch is off! Many people are giving their power away.. to their kids, to the media, to their co-workers, and their business associates. I know it does not make any sense, but why would you do that? I promise you that there is no greater demonstration of this life “magic” than for you to take a leap of faith and flip the switch! TAKE OWNERSHIP of YOUR GREATNESS Just do it and step into your power. Stop allowing what you don’t want, and create what you DO WANT!

Mediocrity is a decision, so make the new decision to abolish it! If you are not dealing with mediocrity, assist someone you know that is struggling with it. Inspire people to know what you know!! Life is a wonder and a sheer miracle. You have the power!

I got to thinking about BIG Thinkers that are all around us, and what they accomplish in every day life.  These seemingly extraordinary heroes are doing amazing things, and some of them are regular people, not flashy guru types, or leaders, type A personalities etc.

They are mothers with children who run businesses out of their homes that make crazy money supporting their husbands who got laid off, or fathers who lead scout troops for their church and create amazing fundraisers that pull off miracles to fund.

They are grandmothers who are ageless go-getters who inspire everyone around them with the energizer bunny style they serve their community, help people and take care of their family. [click to continue…]

Little Girls Grow Up

by limitlesslaura

We celebrated Mother’s Day on Sunday, and  it was a beautiful day. All three of my amazing children participated,  and it turned out that it was my youngest who touched my heart in the most special way.

This young girl, all of 17 as of last Friday, is discovering the world of work, responsibility, and “stepping up” as a person out in the world.

If you are a parent you can relate to birthdays rolling around and taking your children out to pay for their purchases of a card and a gift for a family member, and the same on Father’s Day. Dad would have to do this on Mother’s Day with our kids as well. [click to continue…]
