how you feel about others is how you feel about yourself

Movie Kind of Weekend

As I curl up to watch one of my all time favorite movies Bruce Almighty! It becomes clear it is a perfect analogy of you get what you ask for. Think about it there are only two rules 1. You can’t tell anyone you are God and trust me you don’t want that attention. 2. Can’t mess with Free Will And he responds with can I ask Why? God responds with, yes you can ask why, that’s the beauty of it!

The next few scenes are exact demonstrations of the law of attraction, everything he asked or anything anyone else asked for, they received. If they were not goal setting they could be aimlessly controlled. Jim Carrey in his character Bruce Almighty, shows us how simplistic life can be and joyous. But just like we can not truly control all the choices our children will make neither can God (was one of their messages). Therefore, our only choice is to set goals that make us happy and create the emotional attachment we desire. They even utilize funny, blaten symbolism to show how silly we are because we constantly have signs showing us the BEST path for us. Yet, we choose to say, “Oh no, I don’t need any help or I couldn’t deserve that good of a life or to be that happy.”

How many times can you remember making a choice you didn’t feel good about and it turned out to be a disaster? Or a decision that felt so right for you and even though some people questioned you, you knew like you knew. No matter what when you made that decision you knew it was right for you. Guess what? It turned out perfect or even better than you expected, didn’t it?

It’s because you made a decision on how you feel, it made you feel happy.

I have written it before and I will write it again and again and again….

Life is meant to live to feel good, be happy, enjoy, experience, fulfillment and much more. Set your goals and then enjoy the journey. The events along your road to success are fun and extraordinary.

‘Be Happy’

Judge and ye shall be judged? 

Okay not sure I should call the funny, yet frustrating incidents of the day, a form of judgement. I will let you decide and let me know.

One incident was when a good friend of mine stopped by to just talk. Hidden in our chit chat, it was obvious he was  trying to fill the empty space or void, while his son was away. I remember thinking he is entering high school you should probably let go of those reigns a bit. So if that is a judgemental thought, to you, then my title is on target. 

Then it happened! As I ran my son to his college orientation, I would glance over to look at my six foot three baby boy and think I just hope he won’t starve to death during college. I don’t know why we think, all throughout our children’s lives, they are capable of anything, only to set them free in college and think they are going to fail, because they dont have us to remind them to eat. 

It’s comical to me, how many times I will just question a little bit of what someone is saying and next I will experience a similar incident moments later. Almost as if Judge and ye shall be judged is extremely close to law of attraction! Hmmm or does this statement sound more like Newton’s Law Every Acton has and Equal and Opposite reaction. Wait!!!! I have one more Like begets Like?? I am sure you see the connection between the laws.

Two messages for today…be careful with judgements. I realize this wasn’t a disastrous situation, but remember, my only consequence was a thought or worry about something that is not real. Nicholas is more than capable of feeding himself and seveal others, so I hear. However, what if you pass judgement on someone and it damages them for life. Guess what? You will feel that same horrific judgement. I am sorry but it’s the Law!!! 

The second message is your kids are okay. If you worked with your kids, instilled good morals and values, nurtured them; they will remember to eat when they go to college!!! 

God Bless!!!

Fear? Worry? Anger and Resentment? 

I love you! Those three words can carry an emotional attachment that creates fear and worry depending on how you feel. Yes, I am continuing to discuss ways to feel your way to happiness.

What about finding the love of my life? I want to have love! I want to love and be loved! How can I have that? This may appear to be too simple. However, the few steps I am about to explain are simple and follow the same guidelines as the Universal Law Like Begets Like. 

Step one: stop wallowing with the pigs!!! Meaning we all know he or she hurt you and they are crazy and you are damaged and and and and!!! How many times have you told the story? Each time you tell the story it continues to create and recreate the negative emotion and feeling. All people have a toxic person float in and hopefully out of their lives. The difference is when you are living in the now and making decisions based on the emotional attachment of the outcome; you will choose the easiest, funnest, most peaceful route naturally. But, your so focused on what has been you continue to stay at that low frequency. Which is why I say stop wallowing with the pigs.

Step two: Take time to fall in love with you! I know most have heard you can only love someone as much as you love yourself. My daughter,Nancy, said, “It depends on how broken you are when entering the relationship. You must mend first before you can be in a healthy relationship!” 

Find what you love about you and focus on those items! The things you don’t like about yourself will begin to improve because you continue to focus on your strengths.

Step Three: Create the relationship you want in your mind. How does your partner treat you? See it, feel it visualize and believe it. I promise they will come into your life. If you will feel it. Also accept that you are worthy of love. You are loveable!!!! You deserve a kind, caring, loving partner because that is the KIND of partner you are.

Step Four: if you do not feel love for yourself re-evaluate take time to learn what you love about yourself and focus on that. Tell your concious mind to hush if it begins to throw negative what If’s at you. (Remember that is the job of the concious mind, it is to protect you by retrieving information from your paradigm. Therefore, understand you must continually tell it nooo this time is different because I am different. I am not that past lack of confidence sad disturbed hated life person anymore!! But I thank you for always trying to protect me) then proceed forward with your love for you and in a brief amount of time your partner will appear. They will compliment you and it will be exactly how you visualized it! 

Create your own reality!! Speak about the exciting events unfolding in your life. Choose to live and feel your way to happiness! 

God Bless You!!

You, he she– they all irritate me!!!

Do you find yourself disliking everyone? Is there something wrong with everyone? Do you continually look around and see how bad you are treated by others. Gosh, I know how you feel! It seems like everytime I turn around some one is doing something to me. The only difference in my life now is the people I am constantly attracted to love me for me. I see the beauty in me therefore, I see the beauty in others as well.

Don’t worry if you are agreeing with the first portion of the above paragraph, it’s okay I have felt the same way! There are days I still struggle with what I call, awkward moments. Where someone might rub me the wrong way or I find fault in others. However, to return to those conversations or feelings on a daily basis would be devastating. I can remember feeling competitive, compared, hurt, not good enough, irritable with others and continually finding fault. Again, Yuk even typing those words create a sick feeling in my stomach. 

Then how do I change it? It’s not difficult, but it does take effort on your part. The first few weeks of practicing this new way of thinking you may feel a colorful array of emotions. For example: when you recognize why someone is not being nice to you it may create an angry or sad emotion at first. However, keep working at it and you will be surprised at how amazing each individual, who is already in your life or comes into your life, truly is. I am in awe of my loved ones! I always use the words ‘loved ones’ because I love each individual in my life! I can not discriminate between family and friends I feel fortunate to have them all!!!

Have you ever heard of Universal Laws? Of course if you have read my past writings you have heard me speak of them. The most common laws we learn about in elementary school are Newton’s Laws. Universal Laws follow the same guidlines. The one I am speaking of today is Like Begets Like. You can easily put this into other wording yet it’s definition is the same. This one says whatever you like about other people is what you like about yourself. This law (like all laws) is nonbiased or not prejudice. In other words it doesn’t care if you like or hate-the law goes both ways. Therefore, everything you don’t like about another person you don’t like about yourself. My mother always told me if you are pointing one finger at your neighbor three are pointing back. If you are not sure about this law due to religious beliefs,; the World English Bible translates the passage as: You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.Mathew 7-5

Universal Laws are laws. They are universal. They do not discriminate against religion, ethnicity, shape, size, political party or anything else that separates us from each other. They are the same for everyone. 

How does this work? Let’s begin with a simple example. The song, I Like Big Butts and I cannot lie, is the first scenario that comes to mind. In the beginning of the song several women are talking about another girls butt! If I remember correctly they are bashing her for having such a nice, big butt. Then the song proceeds to defend and praise a big butt! Glorifying the one part the women were complaining about. I know this is a funny comparison or way to explain the law Like Begets Like, but it is fun to do and keeps it light hearted. If you were in the circle of ferocious haters of big butts, you need to step back and ask yourself why? Why does a big oh juicy booty bother you enough to complain about it? Or talk about it? In reality those women in the song didn’t like their behinds (big or small) or they lacked in that area and were just hating on the beautiful big butt. 

Okay, maybe I took that description of butts a little too far! But I guarantee I created a thought for you to begin recognizing the effects of Like Begets Like in your life. You probably know of someone that irritates you, now you can begin to identify why and how to change it.

I know I haven’t told you how to correct these awkward moments in your life. The reason is just like quitting smoking you have to want to quit. Same with changing your habitual view of yourself and the world around you only YOU CAN CHANGE IT! How? How? How?

Steps: 

  1. Learn the Universal Law
  2. Accept it! It’s true I promise as you see others is how you see yourself.
  3. If you catch yourself joining a conversation about someone else and it is not creating a great emotion, walk away or say, “I know but she has worked her love handles off to get that butt!” Anything to change the direction of the comments and converaation.
  4. If you are faced with a negative situation where you feel like the victim- take time to be alone, only to analyze why you felt sad and how you could have handled that differently.
  5. Change what you say to yourself and or about yourself. For example: I always gain weight when _________ . (Fill in the blank). Instead begin saying I love my body and I am happy to be healthy and wealthy. (I use the term Wealthy because some how America decided weight is a sign of poverty. Although carrying weight was a sign of wealth in the past!) I don’t care what you say to yourself just remember the law continues to be active no matter who you are talking about.
  6. Be cautious before you react. For many years I reacted to everything! Now I stop, think and may respond or may not. In other words it’s not about your opinion, rather your vibration. My two cents isn’t always necessary and neither is yours. Therefore, stay cautious before you react. (My grandma always said, “If you can’t say anything nice do not say it at all)
  7. Last trust yourself. Remember all good energy is flowing towards you. The more ‘likes’ you put out and the less “criticism’ the more great vibrations will migrate towards you. When you catch yourself being even silently judgemental, stop yourself, look within, and observe an area of your life you would like to improve. Then find something good to think or say about that person, redirecting the thought process.
  8. Like begets like: if you see good you will feel good more and more. (What you see in others is how you feel about yourself good or bad)

    Have fun!!!
