“We are never trapped unless we choose to be.”
At lunch time after this morning’s writing, I sat in my bed and enjoyed the wind in the tree and the rain outside, holding in my hands a hot cup of rooibos tea, feeling satisfaction. Feeling freedom.
I’ve been back almost a month now from my trip to Bali and Gili and I wanted to write and tell you what’s going on and how I got there.. It’s a good story, involving focusing on my fitness and messages from my phone and a bird. Read on.. I have posted some stories and photos here. Please follow if you’d like more regular updates and inspiration.
I’ve also started writing from the Zen French Woman as I had been planning to do since the beginning of the year. I received this idea when I was in the meditation retreat in January and, even though it may not have made sense to anyone else, I could feel I needed and wanted to write in a different way and this is what was coming through persistently to create.
The other desire that came to me while at the retreat was that I wanted to teach this Cambridge Advanced English class which I used to teach for several years more than five years ago. I received this one in the form of a dream about linguistics and I had the time to really consider this while there.
When I got back I started to take the steps needed to turn my desire into a reality. And now I’m absolutely LOVING it!! It turned out in a way I couldn’t have even imagined – a way that suited me perfectly. Just three evenings a week and I have so much time during the day for coaching as well as creating.
I’ll explain to you how I did it.
The other thing I’m doing is writing a book about the last four years!! It’s part personal development and also my story. Finally I get to tell more about the things I could only hint at in posts and Museletters because the book is the right space!! And it feels so good.
Oooh so happy!!
And my point in telling you this is to say that only you can know what’s best for you. Only you have access to the inner guidance. It can’t be bought!! But can it be taught? Yes. Can it be practised? Most definitely.
People give so much power away to others.. to the psychic, to the tarot, to the mentor.. Sometimes people think coaching is about giving advice, when in fact it is about asking powerful questions and providing the space and vibration for the client to tune into their own truth and guidance. And providing another perspective. At least that’s how it works for me. It’s an intuitive process.
Only you know what’s right for you.
But.. only when feeling satisfied can we have access to this guidance.
Satisfied all the time?
No, but consistently.We always will experience the contrast of what we don’t want as this is step one in the creation process. And then it is our work to train ourselves to get back into alignment and in that we are training our vibration.
Abraham calls this being in the vortex or in alignment. Being in alignment means being in the energy of love, appreciation, joy, abundance, empowerment, satisfaction, fascination or passion and feeling your well-being.
I have been learning so much about this in the 10 months since I’ve been reconstructing my life. At that time, as I’ve told you before, I was living at my parents’ house with no income, little hair and a mind that felt confused.
In that moment I had to decide to LOVE my life from where I was, right here, right now.
And in that energy I started taking the steps, doing one thing at a time before it gained momentum and now, here I am, so proud of myself for truly knowing what is right for me and no longer comparing myself to others and their versions of success.
Because believe me, LOVING your life today and not getting angsty about “not being there yet”or impatient because the person or thing hasn’t shown up yet.. it really works!!
We all have so many desires that they couldn’t possibly all manifest at the same time. But getting angsty and impatient is blocking it.
When you are in the same energy as your desires and consistently there, they manifest.
But they couldn’t all possibly manifest today, so just relax and enjoy your life.
There are still things that pull me out of alignment and this is normal. And sometimes it feels like nothing is happening.
But I continue to commit to BEING HERE NOW. And LOVING my life today.
What happens when you are in this state of alignment with love, joy, abundance, empowerment, appreciation and satisfaction is that you receive intuitive impulses.
So it was that I had the feeling to go on holiday.
I got clear on how much it would cost and then kept seeing 7:47 every time I looked at my phone (as in Boeing 747 hello!). I allowed this desire to be.. while being open to how the money could come in.
And then I intuitively found the advice I required from The Law of Attraction / Art of Allowing. It was this..
“When there are 9 things not working, focus on the one thing that is.”
– Abraham Hicks
So I was sitting at my desk working one Thursday, when I got the impulse to go for a jog. Did it. Came back to an email and a call offering work totalling almost all I’d need for my trip.
Then exactly a week later sitting at my desk, a bird actually flew into my window!!! That’s never happened before. I took the hint, went out, came back to the exact same thing, this time via a Facebook message. And all the money kept coming in like that, with ease.
Source uses all methods and messengers.. but if you’re hell bent on doing it one way at a certain time and getting impatient, complaining, angsty and the like, you don’t see the signs or understand the messages.
That’s why affirmations are not always helpful.
You don’t actually need to clarify your desire. You’re clarifying it all the time with every experience you have. All we have to do is get into alignment to be in the receiving mode.
And how to do this?
Be in the energy of joy, love and abundance consistently.. or just be satisfied and bask in your well-being.
As I was doing all the teaching work the month before I went away, I felt so satisfied!! One main reason was because I knew I’d consciously created that flow of wealth and also because I did things every day that I genuinely enjoyed, like being present with my students, loving discussing language and laughing a lot. I also painted my nails red and wore a lot of jewellery the whole time so that each time I pointed at their work, I enjoyed the beauty and vibrancy of the red nails and the clanging of my silver bangles. Beauty works.
What else did I enjoy? Dressing well, always. And just sitting on the train or reading on the way there, getting a take-away coffee from my favourite place in the city and listening to my favourite music in the car when I was driving and also to Abraham.
See, we could think we are generally in this energy because we are usually a positive person and doing gratitude practice every day. But there are things like comparing ourselves to others, feeling less than and feeling dissatisfied, feeling secretly angry and feeling resentful, obsessing over our bodies, cyber stalking that guy (you know it!)..even just focusing on the reality or current situation and feeling the lack rather than what we desire or just on having fun and loving life.
Hmm I wanted to be able to share what I know about all this so it can be easier for others too and so I have released the LOVING transformational guide : Love yourself and your Life.
It’s 22 pages of teaching and inspiration with 5 practices : 2 to do every day and 3 as one offs. Because this is the thing when it comes to creating and experiencing your magical life with your powerful mind and energy .. it is not about knowing it but about practising it every day.
You can download it immediately and use it digitally or save and print it out, put it in a lovely folder.
I’m so happy to be able to share this with you!!
Next time I will share my methods for manifesting people (one thing I’m good at!!) and what I’ve learned about having the relationship you desire using the law of attraction and observing what works personally. Just subscribe to my Museletter list to receive it.
The biggest power is still LOVING your life as it is.
Please like and share this freely. Thank you!!
Have a magical week beautiful!
With so much love,
