I have received a surprise just now when Emma Turner of http://www.7thspace.co.uk has let me know she has created a video of my “Love is you Being You” article!
If you are reading this in an email, CLICK HERE to go to this post on the blog and view the video.
There is never within any of us such a thing as flaws or distortions other than the masks we have given ourselves. Deep down from an energetic perspective you are actually ‘perfect’ other than the patterns you have practiced to see yourself with over the years. You are essentially pure positive energy in a physical form, you are the manifestation of that energy, and moment by moment you are deciding (whether consciously or unconsciously) what the manifestation of that energy is in you being who you are
Your attention can be on the present, the past, the future, or wherever else. Regardless of where your attention is your point of attraction is in your now moment. That is what you are attracting more of, whatever your vibration – via your thoughts and emotions – is in your now moment
If your attention is on the lover that scorned you or if it is on the business partner that wasn’t so wonderful, what are you attracting more of? Or if you haven’t experienced a ‘perfect lover’ but you are envisioning how it might feel, and how it might feel to have your millions and what you will do with them and how your body will feel being how you want it to be – although you may not have yet experienced these but in your now moment you are envisioning them very clearly and deeply and feeling from them, what is your vibration and what are you attracting more of?
Don’t spend time justifying why you are where you are at now, don’t blame the lover or the (ex) husband or the (ex) wife or parent or the business partner or friend or whomever. Take your attention away from that, sooth any hurt around that, and put it towards WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
When your attention (and hence vibration and intention) is on where you want to be you are attracting experiences that match that. Initially it might be something small that manifests that catches your attention and that makes you think, and then something else happens, and something else. Your attention – your conscious attention – starts shifting towards it more and more, and your expectation builds; you expect it more and ‘allow’ it into your life by being more and more from that place
And of course, if your attention is on those good things that are trickling in, what is your attention NOT on? Where you came from! ‘The past’! You wouldn’t have time to think of where you came from because you’d be TOO BUSY ENJOYING THE NOW!!!! Love and enjoy your NOW so much that you don’t think about anywhere else and don’t care about anywhere else, and everything will take care of itself. Create and mould and shape your now. Take your attention away from what you are coming from and what you don’t want (that in itself will create a huge shift) and naturally your attention will be drawn to those things in your now moment that you can love and appreciate and enjoy
In doing this you will be adopting all those spiritual principles that you’d been reading about for all that time and were figuring out how to implement: detaching, letting go, allowing, creating, attracting and everything else. You will be applying ALL OF THOSE just by making the most of your now moments. In you enJOYing each moment you are not being attached to what you want because your attention is on the now (detachment, letting go), and because you are feeling good you are allowing, creating and attracting
Remember not to beat yourself up. It is ok if things happen (or happened) that aren’t how you like them or want them to be. Sooth yourself around that, sooth your vibration around that. If you give yourself a hard time for too long you are building THAT vibration (and then don’t be surprised if you attract matches to that via recrimination!)
So make peace with the way things are, that will soften your perspective to what you don’t enjoy, it will create the space for what you DO enjoy and your attention will naturally go there. As it goes there that will build – Law of Attraction – it will attract more thoughts that match that and it will grow and grow and grow and you will see physical manifestations. If you do not contradict or doubt yourself along this process you will see more physical manifestations and it will grow and build and build and build. It is loving your now moment but wanting to expand and grow more and have more.
Your now moment is as rich and abundant as you see it to be, and seeing that will show you more abundance. There is no corner or spot in the Universe that is not abundant – the Universe is abundant EVERYWHERE – period! The Universe is not playing a game and has said that just for you – just for you – it will withhold some of its abundance! It has not decided that just for kicks it will withhold it from you! The Universe adores you as you are a part of it and it expands THROUGH you – if you win, it wins!
So be kind to yourself, know that there is abundance around you, today, and every day, where you are, and everywhere
In your kindness to yourself the Universe will match that, and you will see things around you, and it will get easier, you will see reflections of your love for yourself and it will expand and grow
Remember to appreciate who you are, there is no coincidence you are here, you came here to do things and experience things. Appreciate you are here to be you, and you are perfect the way you are
THE KEY IS HOW YOU FEEL
What you will find is one's purpose is joy, love, enjoyment, appreciation, fun etc – whatever words one wants to use here, the key is the essence, the feeling, the vibration etc – and the FORM (the 'how') of it can be whatever, it can be being great at a sport, business, the arts, internet marketing or whatever it may be. The form can be a range of things and it can vary throughout your life and as you choose, the common denominator is HOW IT FEELS. That is when you know you are connected to your true purpose.
When you are in a relationship and it 'feels right' or a job or work that 'feels right' or something else that 'feels right' then you are on the path of your purpose, and that can be whatever you want it to be, so long as you have a clear vibration about it – i.e. you do not contradict it, your indication is through your feelings.
The terms 'Purpose' and 'Mission' etc have been banded around for many years, what you will find is that when someone feels something is their purpose…it FEELS a certain way, that is the key. The form – the details, the 'how' – of the purpose can change, just as you are ever growing and ever changing, and as the Universe is abundant and has choice and freewill, you can make anything your purpose, it feeling good is the indication of your alignment to it. The better it feels the more in song you are with it.
When you are in alignment – and you can call it being on the path of your purpose, or whatever terminology you'd like to use – the Universe orchestrates itself and will provide the resources you need to have and be what you need to do. The Universe does not mind what you do, but when you are in alignment with yourself you will expand powerfully and see physical manifestations and the Universe will be your best friend in making sure the road ahead is fine to take you to where you want to go, and if not the Universe will give you signs to take detours that can get you there faster.
IT'S ABOUT THE JOY AND THE PROCESS
The implication of the word 'purpose' suggests it has to be an end result, that's not necessarily the case in how we are talking about it although it is part of the process, part of the mix. When someone paints a beautiful painting the fun is in the painting of it, when someone is with the love of their life the magic is in the moment. When someone has a child the joy is in the process of it than intending the child to live to a 100 (end result), your joy is in the process of being with your child.
When you have goals, whilst the goal is an end result, your real purpose is your joy and process in creating it, including the contrast and the challenges you experience and how you expand and grow – including vibrationally – as a result. So it's not just about the end result and how quick you get there and in what style.
Everything you go through, whatever detours or dead-ends you take and however challenging it may be, or even easy as it may be, is 'perfect' and part of the journey, it is all adding to your development and there is nothing that you do that is 'wasted', it is all adding to your vibration in attracting what you want. Even when you are frustrated and disappointed in the short term, in those moments your desire for what you want is amongst its strongest, you are hungriest in that moment and your vibration has expanded, and when you get back on the road in terms of your alignment and feeling better and better you improve your alignment and harmony with the Universe and from a more powerful place vibrationally.
YOU WILL LITERALLY SEE MIRACLES AROUND YOU
So know that whatever you do is fine, it's part of the journey, and as you head towards better and better feeling thoughts, experiences and moments, you are lining up to the magic within yourself and the Universe around you. As you align to that harmony, to that magic, you will literally see miracles happen around you. All the miracles you have ever heard of have all been in this category, there is no difference. And you have access to it a step at a time from wherever you are, right now.
Just start with something that feels a bit inspired, and then do something else from there, and something else from there, and so on. And within a few steps – whilst it may seem 'only' a few steps – vibrationally you are already exponentially so far away from where you started, and the momentum is powerfully towards where you want to go. Each progressive step is bigger and more powerful as each one builds on the vibrational platforms created by the previous steps.
Realise that you may think there are logical steps to what you want and 'logically' it may seem far away, but when you take the vibrational steps as mentioned here you are taking EXPONENTIALLY LARGE STEPS. You may have thought 'How will I achieve this?' but when you line up to what feels good and to 'You' – the spiritual part of you by what feels good – you are in synch with the Universe and you see the synchronicities and 'coincidences'.
You could for example be in a lift with someone who is looking for something that you are offering and it just 'happens' to be a perfect fit for both of you. You see the coincidences and the synchronicities happen, and in your excitement and 'allowing' you are letting in more and more of them and you are letting in more of your flow.
When you are in tune with your 'purpose' all sorts of things will open up for you. The Universe is always your friend, though now you are in tune with it and working side by side and all sorts of synchronicities and apparent 'chance happenings' and ideas and inspirations will naturally come through, AND THIS IS THE NATURAL FLOW. Also it won't feel like 'work' because it's 'fun'.
Sometimes people can have a belief of "Can I really do that, as it 'feels like too much fun'", allow yourself to follow what feels good, that is the sign from the Universe, even if it doesn't immediately make rational sense, but it IS getting you in tune with You and everything else.
When you tune into your love and fun and enjoyment and so on you are in tune with what you came here to do
I want to discuss an experience I just had that made me realize a few
things about fear. What I essentially realized was that fear is a
choice, and something very interesting about fear is why we chose to be
afraid. I guess lots of people chose fear for different reasons, and
maybe for some it is not a choice but I think often we do chose to be
On Monday June 2nd I had open heart surgery. I had a
hole in my heart called an ASD and I got it closed up. In September
2007, I learned that I was going to have open heart surgery so I had a
long time to think about it and deal with the idea. Actually it was
soon after I found this out that I was introduced to movies like The
Secret and Abraham The Secret Behind the Secret. I feel like I did
attract these things into my life because I needed them to help me deal
with what I was facing.
At first I was scared to get this
surgery. The thought of being cut open was quite disturbing. But when I
saw Abraham the Secret Behind the Secret I realized that I am not
defined by my body. I am something bigger than my body and I can have
control over my body. With this realization my fear lessened. Thinking
of myself as an eternal being also helped my fear decrease because I
thought, no matter what happens, everything will be OK.
week before my surgery I did many meditations and tried to feel as much
love and peace as I could. It was during this week that I realized that
I was not really scared anymore. I wondered why I had been scared
before. It was probably the night before surgery that I realized why I
had been scared. I was reading Louise Hay's Heal Your Body and the part
about how all physical ailments are a result of either fear or anger
popped off the page at me. I realized that our bodies give us
indications of how we're out of alignment with our true selves, and
having fear is one of the ways we get out of alignment.
then why was I scared? I think that we chose fear because we think it
serves us in some way. For me it was almost like a programmed fear. I
just thought it is normal to be scared about surgery, so that is what I
felt. In certain situations fear is a good thing to have because it
makes us avoid dangerous situations or it helps us get out of dangerous
situations. For example, if we're in a situation where we need to run
to save our lives, fear releases adrenaline and enables us to have a
physical reaction which helps us escape more easily.
often have fear when it does not serve us in this way. I think that we
think having fear will protect us because in other situations it does.
And then when we are scared we attract that which we fear and we think
this confirms that we were correct to be scared in the first place. But
if we weren't scared we wouldn't have attracted that which we fear so
fear is really not the protective emotion that we think it is in many
The night before my surgery I watched Abraham the
Secret Behind the Secret again and I slept so well that night. I felt
peace and love and I knew I could handle whatever happened. I also knew
that if I chose to be scared it would be more difficult for me to
handle what was to happen. I felt that if I was peaceful and happy my
vibrations of peace would be absorbed by the staff performing the
surgery and everything would go smoothly. Conversely I thought that if
I was scared they would feel my stress. I told myself that I didn't
have to worry about what was to happen when I was under the anesthetic
because I wouldn't really be there. It was not my job to control that
situation in detail it was just my job to be happy.
that as a result of my peace, and joy going into surgery it went very
well. I used to be very scared of needles but instead of being scared I
said things to myself like, "They are giving me medicine of joy". When
they took the drainage tubes out of my chest while I was awake, I said
"I am releasing the tubes of Joy", and it was actually a pretty cool
experience, instead of one that would have made me faint.
might have been one of the best things that has ever happened to me,
because it has shown me how much I can handle, and it has given me a
greater appreciation for everything in life.
Thanks for this post, Jodi
It's an excellent one about the mind
and spirit and seeing beyond what we have believed our bodies to be,
beyond the physical that we see and calling through to what more there
Dealing with fear, oftentimes for people when they experience
something physical or health related there is a panic, perhaps also
from the (mis)conception that the physical is 'fixed', it cannot be
changed, 'what could go wrong', etc. And the title of your post changes
that perception which once was an instinctive reaction by people, to
considering and realising their instinctive reactions.
'reality' is that your body is constantly replenishing itself and it is
doing it by the blueprint from your thoughts and emotions.
approach of tapping into that larger part of you through your thoughts
and emotions, perhaps maybe initially grabbing onto something for hope,
and working it, and improving the vibration, and improving the
vibration, and improving the vibration and so on, is a wonderful
example and credit to you for your handling of it, and also your
ability to share and communicate it with others.
You also used a word that people don't often use in the same sentence as surgery, 'joy' lol.
This was a reply I wrote in a group in Facebook to a budding author who was finding frustration in writing her book. She was a full time teacher and frustrated that her first novel hadn’t been taken on to be published yet and in despair that her agent had suggested her writing another novel instead:
Get into your novel writing such that you enJOY it so
much that time flies by and you’re not wondering about publishers and
agents and books but loving what you’re doing so much, practice your
mindset/vibration towards it such that it’s the joy that thrills you,
that is your reward.
The other thing I’d add is realise the
universal stream is infinite. That’s why you don’t need to ‘push
harder’ to make it ‘go faster’, you just need to line up with it (in terms of thoughts and feelings being in line with it) and
the momentum (including Law of Attraction) will speed it up, and it
will get easier and easier and more and more fun. The results will find
you and you won’t be looking for them, but of course your reward would
be the thrill of it anyway… 😉
Thanks so much for your words. They are so encouraging and
you are right – enjoyment is the key. Feel free to post what you wrote
in response to my thread – the more people who can benefit from what
you said the better!
