What did you say?

Shine a Light experimentHave you ever consciously listened to what you say throughout the day? Or do you speak out of habit? Do you mainly speak positive words? Negative words? Words of praise or limitation?

The Law of Attraction feeds off of our beliefs, thoughts, emotions and spoken words. If you have been working diligently on being more positive and happy but still do not have the manifestations that you desire, it is time for you to look at the words that you say throughout the day.

So this week I am putting out a Shine a Light Experiment! This is a simple yet eye-opening experiment to spotlight any negative words that you speak. I really want you to give this a try!!! For one entire day (more is better) from the moment you wake up to the moment to fall asleep, I want you to be conscious of what you say and to write down any negative word that you utter. Be honest and write them all down because it will be transformative (for the better!). Some of the most common negative words to be on the lookout for are: can’t, won’t, don’t, not, worry, fear, terrible, distrust, difficult, challenge, wrong.

It may seem counter-productive to make a list of negative words that you utter, but it is actually a great method to point out how often we blindly utter words without much thought. We do this out of habit. This experiment will make you conscious of what you say and that is a significant first step towards changing your words thus changing your vibration.

When you want to shift your vibration to a more positive energy, it takes more than a positive outlook; it also takes looking at the words that you commonly use everyday. So grab a journal or notebook (one that is small that you can conveniently carry) and get writing! I am eager to see how you do!

Fast Food Questions and Know-it-all Answers

I like to go through life as a seeker of information, not only for my own progress but to help others. I devour books and usually I am reading 4 at a time! When I do not know the answer, I will go within to find it. That’s what I do here at Manifested Harmony … I help people tap into their own wisdom. Even though I have 3 master certifications in energy therapies, that does not mean that I’m a master of the Universe (hmmmm, that would be fun!) and I certainly do not know everything. But my inner voice is very wise if I take the time to listen.

So I must confess two things that I see in the quest for self-improvement: (1) the Fast Food Questioner and (2) “The Know-It-All.”

A Fast Food Questioner is someone who craves information, wants immediate answers and results, does not have patience to let things unfold, and blindly relies far too much on information provided and interpreted by others. These people are on a fast track for self-improvement and do not have patience to recognize the good that they already have. They want self-improvement now and a quick fix. I have learned that what works for one person does not necessarily work for me. What is lacking for the Fast Food Questioner is that they do not slow down to look within to find the answers that are solely meant for their self-improvement. Maybe they are a little afraid of listening to their inner voice (helpful hint: it’s always helpful and right!) This is why I tell my students to absorb what resonates with them and to disregard what does not. Just because I share something that has worked for me or a client does not mean that it will 100% work for someone else. This is why choosing a teacher is a very personal experience; you want to resonate with their teachings and feel comfortable to question and veer onto an untraveled side path with their support.

So this gets us to the Know-It-All. This is someone who may be a recognized expert in their field, and they do not hesitate to let everyone know. Or maybe they just think they know all of the answers. Don’t get me wrong … I’m a big fan of people who study a subject and work diligently to become an expert in their field. An expert is far different than being a Know-It-All. A Know-It-All is someone who charges ahead with their information and you can either hop aboard the information train with them, or be left behind in a cloud of dust. They have one set opinion and you’re not shaking them from it. My way or the highway is the bumper sticker on their car. I have encountered many Know-It-Alls along my path (many who studied hard to learn their craft, and others who just like to espouse their strong opinions).

What I notice is that experts share their knowledge with humility, compassion and flexibility (there’s more than one way to hit a baseball), whereas Know-It-Alls have an unbending way of teaching (do it this way or else it’s wrong). For a Fast Food Questioner, they may blindly follow the Know-It-All because they want answers now and do not take the time to ask “does this teacher and the information resonate with me? Will this work for me?” This is where Fast Food Questions and Know-It-All answers collide, and the carnage is not pleasant to watch.

What if you are a Fast Food Questioner or a Know-It-All? Here’s a piece of advice from my inner voice (who was quite persistent in asking me to write this blog!!): (1) If you’re a Fast Food Questioner, keep your thirst for knowledge alive, and begin to discern information through a lens of what is best for you. Don’t take information blindly; take your time and let the answers sink in; absorb what you (and only you) need to know. And remember, improvement is a process, not an event. Don’t worry so much about “fixing” yourself and, instead, shift the focus to being grateful for each day, and being the best that you can be every day (knowing that you’re already pretty great!) (2) If you are a Know-It-All, be proud of your expertise and accomplishments (if you’ve earned them through diligent study and practice), and consider the possibility that there is more than one way to do something and varying interpretations of information. Travel back to the core reason of why you chose to become knowledgeable in a given area. It’s most likely because you want to help people, right? So with that in mind, be an approachable resource (rather than a force), don’t engage in one-upmanship with your brilliance, and be supportive of your flock.

My students and clients ask the best questions which challenges me to seek out various solutions (not just one way) while supporting them to decide what is in their best interest. That’s the fun part of being a teacher, an expert or whatever you want to label yourself.

Just remember that there is a fine line between being an expert and being a Know-It-All. Which energy would you rather put out? Bottom line … keep seeking, look within for answers that are already there, and keep an open mind. This way we can all learn from each other! After all, we’re all in the classroom called Life on Earth, so let’s all enjoy it!

Let’s get inspired!

Inspired actionWhen you are working with the Law of Attraction, one key component that many people miss is the underling desire for what is wanted. I’m not talking about a mental, thought out, intellectual “I want this!” I’m talking about a desire that consumes you to your core, possesses your mind, and directs your actions even though the outside world may question those actions. In other words … inspiration!

If you do not have inspiration for what you want to manifest, the Law of Attraction cannot bring it to you. It is often a missed step that I talk about in my classes. Let me give you an example.

It seems like everyone wants to win the lottery so that they can leave their uninspiring jobs, maybe their miserable relationships, buy their dream home and move to a location that gives them joy. Sounds great, right? But deep down they have a block to winning the lottery. It could be that little voice in their head that says now you have to hire a financial planner, banker, attorney and all of these money professionals. What if they are not honest and steal my lottery money? What if family members beg for money? What if needy people come to me for a hand out? Oh, the burden of having millions of dollars! 

Those thoughts are concerns that invariably shift out energy out of inspiration to want millions of dollars. They are negative thoughts that push away any chance of winning the lottery. But what is missing in this story is the deep, burning, juicy desire to have more money than you will ever truly need. For most people, we want to be financially comfortable, not financially burdened under a load of money. Without that inspiration, you are in a canoe without a paddle headed upstream my friend.

So how do you get desire and inspiration to manifest what you truly want? Look to how you spend your time when no one is looking. When you’re not required to be at a job that pays your bills, how do you spend your days? If you did not have to worry about money, what would you do from 8am to 6pm everyday? Those activities are your desire, your inspiration, and where you will manifest.

Earthing and groundFor example, I love to rock hound, play with crystals, write, and help people and animals (just to name a few). Whether I am paid or not, I would do those activities and every day I actually do those activities. I do them without regard for what’s in it for me? and I can do them endlessly and lose track of time. I do them because of my inspired desire. So when I set an intention to manifest something that relates to one of those activities, it comes to fruition. And if I make money in the process … bonus!

On the other hand, when I set an intention for something that does not bring me inspiration and that does not have the energy of desire driving it, then no matter what intention I set and how much I consciously work the Law of Attraction, it will not manifest. For example, I get a lot of great suggestions for classes that I should create. For some, I do not resonate with the topic right now (I could and likely will down the road). So if I were to set an intention to create a class that I do not have a deep desire to create, I will not have the requisite inspiration to make it come to life. And it will remain on my to-do list and not manifest.

We all instinctively know that inspiration is the key to manifesting because when we take inspired action we do it with joy; but when we take action out of obligation, it does not go as smoothly and our energy is focused on obligation, not joy.

Tip of the week: (1) Make a list of everything that inspires you. (2) Make another list of everything you “want”. (3) Compare the lists to see if any of the items match. For those that match, set an intention and take inspired action as it comes to you to make it manifest. For any “want” items that do not match to inspiration, consider letting those go so that you can make more room for “wants” that match your desires.
