I wanted to share a positive message about how the universe can and does respond to intention and attention.
My daughter wanted to go to the St James Tearoom.
It’s a fancy luncheon place that serves old-fashioned tea sandwiches dressed in cream cheese, cucumbers and flowers, with biscuits and clotted cream.
It is one of her favorite things to do.
She wanted to go with her dad and he rescheduled his afternoon patients just to take her.
He knows how fast children grow up. he remembers the day his son preferred the company of his friends to him, and he just wasn’t ready for that yet with this one…not yet.
Granted we have been lucky, our son stayed close by through college to really eek out the last bits of play with my husband and me. But it is still hard to let go. To see them grow. To watch them do precisely what we are teaching them to do — become their best self and have full and happy adventures in far away places…
It was a beautiful afternoon, a slight breeze in the air. As they were getting out of the car my daughter noticed something in the drain by the curb…she ran over to it and with her most precious smile presented to her dad a hundred dollar bill.
She was delighted. He was dumbfounded.
She had been saving for something special. And now she had found a hundred dollar bill. She felt very lucky. She was. She had a lovely tea and enjoyed all the festivities. When their time was up she took home her uneaten desserts and her special find.
The power of this story is exemplified in her simple belief that the world will provide that which she needs, without question.
Esther Hicks/Abraham encourage each of us to simply ‘ask and it is given'(Hicks, 2004). The Law of Attraction as she calls the energetic law of the universe referencing that what you attend to, what you put your energy into is what you will receive. When you find yourself stuck it is a result of you simultaneously putting energy into releasing something that no longer has value while also holding to it. You allow fear to have a voice as loud as faith. When this happens the energy of both are sent your way and your resulting experience is a lack of movement, or no change.
I see this often when I work with couples. Each party is holding to resentments, or habits, or fears while also saying he or she desires to release it and move forward. They find themselves in the same argument. They reflect and trigger each other’s fear and reactivity. This is a waste of energy. Not simply a waste of energy in the argument but also a waste of the use of your attention and intention the pathway to focus energy toward the creation of your desire.
Each of you reading this can have the same experience of money simply showing up in your life (growing on trees, ready for you to pluck like fruit and receive).
Here are the simple steps to make it so:
- Take a breath, exhale and clear your mind.
- Visualize what you desire.
- Hold the visualization clear in your heart and mind for 30 seconds free of negativity or attachment to the process (reasons it cannot happen or ways it should happen or how you will feel hurt if it doesn’t happen).
- Take a deep breath and as you exhale release your desire as you would a butterfly.
- Write down what you saw and desire onto a piece of paper and put it in a box you keep near your bed while you sleep.
- You may do this as often as you like.
- When you gaze upon the box say a prayer that all that is good will come to you.
To strengthen the power of this process
- Live your life with an open heart and a mindful attitude. Keep negative beliefs out of your daily thought patterns.
- Consciously release thoughts and habit patterns that do not serve you.
- Be compassionate toward yourself and others.
- Be mindful: When you are struggling, look at the problem within the context of that which is good in our life.
In these difficult times I find myself and others forgetting the power in prayer. The power of faith and knowing. The power of clear intention and attention. I like to remind myself and those I love that the universe is working for me, I just have to get out of the way and let the good I have created flow to me. I wish the absolute best to you. in love and light, bg
