The power of the universe is permanently available to you, and when you understand that this power has never failed in anything it has undertaken, you can have UTTER faith that it will never fail you either.
It is your awareness and faith in this unfathomable power that connects you to it.
Today i was in a bit of an odd mood - one i didn't find to be very pleasent and one i sort of struggled to get myself out of. But with the help of my 4 year old son (who is a breath of fresh air) and the constant recital of some affirmations i was able to climb out of it. So the first one on my list today is:
I am so thankful for the fact that i understand that i have complete control over myself and how i allow other people to affect my inner peace.
For my beautiful son, loving partner and a wonderful family.
For the new opportunities that flooded me today.
For good health
For everything that i have received and everything that i am receiving.
Expressing Gratitude is another important factor when trying to allow peace of mind, and the first technique for thought control. Expressing gratitude allows you to feel positive and joyful about life, and in particular - YOUR life.
OK - so it may seem a little difficult to recognize the things that you have to be grateful for if your current circumstances are no where near how you desire for them to be. If your (Profile 1) sitting there reading this whilst interrupted by thoughts of the job you can't stand, the balance on your bank statement is not as high as you'd like it to be, you have a cheap car that doesn't always seem to want to start and you have a mountain of bills shoved away in the draw. Or (Profile 2) you've had no luck in finding a new job after being fired from the last, you currently have no money in the bank, you have no car nor can you afford to buy one, and you have a mountain of bills shoved away in the draw.
Both scenarios would seem pretty bleak if this resembles your current circumstances but although both profiles still have a lot to be grateful for, profile 1 has slightly more - in terms of materialistic things - to be grateful for than profile 2. Profile 2 desires to have the things that profile 1 has, yet for profile 1 these things are not enough.
I have had a lot of rough time's in my life, times when i was younger and we had to go without some of the most essential things at times. Without going into my life story i want to tell you that it made me and my younger sister so grateful for the things that we did have, and the times when we received just that little bit more. The way i look at it is that somewhere out there, there is always someone else that is a little worse off than you. We are all obviously blessed with life, and this is something that despite our current circumstances we should always remember to express gratitude for, but there are some people out there that literally have nothing. And for someone that has been half way down the other side of the scale, daily i take time to express gratitude for the things in my life. You may be profile 1 and sitting there right now thinking "Yeah yeah, you try living my life." But you try living profile 2's life. Or better yet the life of someone that has no income, no money in their pocket, doesn't no where their next meals coming from and has no roof over their head.
I'm not in anyway trying to make you feel bad for wanting more - believe me there is certainly much more out there for you waiting for you to find it.
What i am trying to do is make you see that you can and should always show gratitude for what you have, because compared to the lives of some - profile 1 is rich!
Identifying the things you have to be grateful for and regularly expressing gratitude for them allows the universe to give you more. As you express gratitude you will put yourself in a frame of mind - one that's of joy and expectancy, you will also allow yourself to recognize even more things that you have to be grateful for and you'll keep attracting more even greater things into your life. Because you are thankful for and appreciate what you currently have you are naturally putting yourself in a state of positive thinking because you are now focusing on what you HAVE rather than what you DON'T HAVE.
And in return the Law of Attraction has to reciprocate by giving you a LOT MORE.
Without gratitude, the energy you put out is I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH - and so, by the Law of Attraction, you'll keep losing more and more until you don't have enough.
It doesn't take much to take a few minutes out of your day to practice being thankful. I usually do it at night before i go bed and briefly in the morning as soon as i wake up.
But you could also do it:
Whilst in the shower
On your daily commute
I have decided to write a daily gratitude post and would love for you to also share your daily gratitude list by replying to that post. This allowing you to spend a few minutes if you have not done so already to express gratitude.
Here is my list for today:
I am so grateful for having money in my pocket and in my bank account, a roof over my head, clothes on my back and for always having food on the table.
I am so thankful for having a wonderful partner, a beautiful intelligent son and family and friends who love and respect me.
I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in ever increasing amounts, through multiple streams of income, on a continuous basis.
I am so thankful for being born me.
I'm so thankful and grateful for being in good health, i am young in spirit, joyful and energised. I am happy with the way i look.
The Law of Attraction is a universal law which has been in place since the beginning of time. It is always working, whether you are aware of it or not, whether you believe in it or not and whether you practice it or not. It is constantly working!
My belief in the Law of attraction is immensely strong and based on more than anything i have read in "The secret," any personal development website or been told by anybody trying to master the laws of the universe.
One thing i have a strong belief in and which never stands to question is the Bible. It is the words contained with this masterpiece why my belief and faith in the Law of Attraction exists. Every other resource used to gain information just further enhances my understanding of it.
If you have read the Secret then you will be aware of - "Ask and it is given." This phrase is taken from a passage in the Bible.
Mark 11:23 - 24
Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass: he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore i say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
The human body is made up of Molecules and these molecules are made up of atoms. To delve even further, these atoms are made up of Protons, Neutrons and Electrons.
Looking even further than this we are no longer matter - but energy!
EVERYTHING in the universe is made up of energy. Including You.
Energy is defined as the capacity to do WORK. It is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. Energy can be found in a number of different forms. Everything we do is connected to energy in one form or another. Even when we THINK.
You are energy in a physical form. Or, to use a spiritual concept - you are a soul within a physical body - a particle of God.
The kingdom of God is within you.
Everything around you: animals, trees, rocks, dirt and dust are all pure energy - pulsing, living consciousness who are all experiencing contrast and who have preferences. And these living pulsing preferences have summoning power.
You too are pure energy - but with one difference. You are conscious of yourself. This self-awareness, when directed, can allow you to dictate what experiences you choose to bring into your world.
That which you think about you create into your own reality. Your attracting everything and everyone that comes into your life. You have an awareness of your environment, which stimulates your own personal preferences. Those preferences, whether you speak them out loud or not, cause you to offer a vibrational emanation (an asking) and the Law of Attraction answers your vibrational emanation with other vibrational offerings that match. When you understand the Law of Attraction you understand that you can dictate what and who you choose to come into your life.
Like most people, your dominant thoughts are usually about your daily worries, fears and what you lack. It is easy to get caught up and only see your current appearances, and these appearances cause you to attract more alike as they dominate your thoughts. When you learn and understand that you are a powerful Non- physical energy within your physical body and you are highly capable of creating your own reality you will live a life according to that which you desire.
"We must "be" before we can "do,"
and we can "do" only to the extent which we "are,"
and what we "are" depends upon what we "think."

My first great experience with the Law of Attraction(manifestation) happened about 5-6 months ago. I was aiming to manifest some money at the time, not a huge amount, just a bit that would allow me to get a few things sorted at that point in time - a couple of hundred or so. I was focusing so hard on what i wanted to manifest that my thoughts and feelings towards it began to change. It was no longer something that i was trying to focus on to bring into my reality but more something that i already knew i was going to receive. I kept hearing this voice telling me that i was going to find some money, and it was a voice that i could not ignore. So for the next couple of weeks all i allowed myself to feel was this thought that i was going to find some money. I started to notice that whenever i was out i was constantly on the lookout for this money i was going to find. I even began to have dreams that i found some money, i just never saw how.
One day i was waiting at the cash point in my town center, the market was on that day so the center was pretty busy. The man in front of me was taking a little to long and i started to get inpatient. I was looking in my purse for my card when i noticed he had finished and walked off. I walked up to the ATM stilling looking in my purse for my card, just as i found it and took it out to put it in, the machine started making noise as if it was processing something. I read the display and it said "your cash is being counted." I quickly turned in the direction the man had walked off in and then realised that i had not seen his face and wouldn't be able to recognize him if he was stood right in front of me, and i had not really paid much attention to what he was wearing when looking at his back profile. So i turned my attention back to the machine just as some money popped out. I took the money out and looked around, there was no one waiting behind me and no one seemed to notice what had just happened. My honest and genuine feelings at that exact moment in time was "Oh my God, what should i do. What should i do with this money - that isn't mine - that has just popped out of the machine not followed by a receipt to be able to trace it back to an account." So many things was running through my mind, and slowly i began to walk off with this what looked like a considerably large amount of money in my hands. I walked a little and went and sat on a bench near by. I was so shocked that i felt almost scared to look down at what i held in my hands. I looked around for a bit, and then started to get this niggling feeling that this was the money i was going to find. I began to review the whole situation and thought that, short of leaving the money there on the bench and walking off - which would be a pretty silly thing to do, there was not really much else that i could do but except the matter, and realise that i had "received." I looked back at the cash point to again check if anyone had approached it and then began to count the money. I counted out £300 and began to feeling an overwhelming feeling of Gratitude.
For some unknown reason i have not allowed myself to get on that same wavelength that i was on at that time to have manifested something like that so quickly. Although i am still manifesting things into my life in other areas, i have not manifested money in that way since. The only thing that matters to me though is that i know i can!
I wanted to make you aware of something that is being called "The BEST Visualization tool EVER."
Since it has been released it has blown up, the blog has received well over 1,000 hits in just a couple of weeks.
The Mind Movies team have added another dimension to the Law of Attraction that ramps up how fast you can manifest anything you want into your life.
Here is a link to the blog where you can watch the interview with Ryan Higgins and Frank Kern about Ryans personal experience with this new visualization tool, you can also read what other people are saying about it and also grab yourself some FREE goodies.
And here is the link to a video with Ryan and Natalie. (both from the mind movies team) You'll find fascinating case studies of two people who have used
this strategy to bring about some pretty exciting changes. For example...
** Manifesting thousands of dollars in unexpected income, including a check for 7,500 dollars arriving in the mail...
** A beautiful new apartment suddenly becoming available, at exactly the right rent...
** Being PAID to travel to an exotic dream destination...
** Receiving a surprise windfall from "beyond the grave"...
The power and magnitude of this visualization tool is AMAZING, but it really is better for you to see for yourself!

I believe that one of the key things to generating peace of mind is forgiveness. The most powerful reason to forgive is for your own freedom, however one of the things you have to remember is that true forgiveness takes place in your heart not your mind.
You cannot try and force yourself to forgive for the sake of creating peace and there is no true forgiveness under the terms "I can forgive but I'll never forget."
True forgiveness is about completely letting go. Letting go of negativity from the past. Negativity from which anger can be formed - thus leading to pride. Anger and pride can consume your mind if you allow it. Some of us find it to hard to let go and say "I forgive you." For pride stops you from wanting to be seen as a pushover not necessarily to that person - but to yourself.
For most of us we know no better really. When i was younger i was not taught that if someone does you wrong, you let it go and you forgive them. When someone does you wrong, your natural reaction is to get angry. And if the situation is not resolved there and then, that anger will nest it's self within you.
Something that we have to realise is that we are all different. We all have our own paths, we think differently,we act differently, we react differently. People make different mistakes and sometimes people make mistakes that you may not necessarily be able to understand because it was a mistake that was made against you, therefore all you can see is "That person did me wrong - I'm angry. But we all have to find our own way and we do so by making mistakes. For the majority of us at some point or another, we learn and mature from our mistakes. If God can forgive you for your mistakes how can you not find it in your heart to forgive somebody else for there's.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Forgiveness of another (or yourself) restores the truth of one's own being. Forgiveness is not about condoning an action that may have hurt you but an understanding of why it occurred and the process of letting it go. It is not about forgetting what happened but about accepting what was and now no longer is.
Here i have included a video of an interview with a man who i deeply admire because of his strength. In 1995 Azim Khamiza lost his son in a gang related murder. Azim shares how holding resentment takes up precious space in our minds. In forgiving his son's killer Azim was able to create a foundation that educates and empowers.
As you saw, Azim went on to create something wonderful through his forgiveness. What could you create through yours?
On that note i wanted to end by saying, let go of that dead energy which is the past and move forward to the present which is where you and the other are today.
The past is lived and cannot be changed. It no longer serves you, it is merely a record to be utilized for discernment, not to keep yourself or another in a box which is no longer true.
Like i said earlier - the most powerful reason to forgive is for your own freedom. Do you choose to be happy?
I'm sure you have heard of "The Secret" and maybe even read the book or watched the film.
The book was first brought to my attention a year ago, at a point when i was in a dark place. Certain areas in my life were spiralling out of control and things just seemed to be getting worse and worse.
An old family friend introduced me to this "amazing" book she had recently read. When she described it to me i thought it sounded a little to amazing to be true, but at the same time it was something i kind of wanted to believe in because at that point in my life, i needed a sense of direction. I needed some hope.
Straight away i went out and purchased the book. Events and incidents that i have been blessed to experience in my life have led to me being a very open minded person, so i was fully ready to embrace the information contained within this book.
I got through the first few pages and i was gripped, the book, the words, the quotes, the stories - everything fully opened my eyes to what seemed like a whole new world. Instantly i was amazed by something I'd known nothing about called, The Law of Attraction.
I began to put into practice the works of this "secret." I realized that i had to get in a better frame of mind and i knew that the best way to do this was by expressing something which is regularly talked about in the book, and the key to keeping you in the correct frame of mind is "Gratitude". Although i had debts flying at me from all directions, i was depressed and my relationship seemed to be sinking, i realised that i had a lot to be grateful for, as do we all.
I was taking so much for granted, things that seem basic to me some people are not fortunate enough to have, things that i don't know what i would do with out. As i began to express gratitude for what i do have in my life i started to feel a lot more optimistic about my future and my current situation. I started to feel a lot more positive within myself and stopped focusing on negative areas in my life and began to focus on what sort of life i wanted to create.
A lot has changed for me since then, I'm at a point in my life where back then i didn't ever imagine i would be. My mind is free from all the negative baggage that i was carrying around with me. I don't worry about things anymore and only focus on the positive. My relationship with my partner is so much stronger, i started my own business from home and i just feel so much happier within myself.
But up until a couple of weeks ago i realized that "Believing in the law does not mean you are really using it." And it was true - i wasn't. Yes a lot had changed in my life but i was not practicing the law the way i should be, i was not living by it. And i had to ask myself - Why? It's not a law that requires you to change who you are, or what you believe. It's a law that shows you how to be happy, to have freedom of life. A law that helps you to discover who you really are and how to have and live the life that God meant for you. The life that is already yours.
So really i have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
So for the past couple of weeks i have been living and breathing The Law of Attraction. The discoveries that i have made and the information that i have helped flow in my direction are what led me to create this blog. I want a place to be able to share my knowledge with others and the further discoveries that i make. The most important thing i want to attract is freedom of life. Not entirely in terms of wealth, but to just have total peace of mind. To discover more about the Universe and how it works. To escape the current reality trap and uncover a world that i have had my eyes closed to for the whole of my life.
