If you're reading this blog, there's a good chance you've heard of the Law of Attraction.  There's a lot to be said on that topic, so we won't delve too deeply, just enough for the purpose of this post.

 
In a nutshell, what you put out in the world in terms of energy is returned to you, multiplied.  Like attracts like, and what you put out, you get in return.  We are such awesome powerhouses, that we have the ability to attract things based on our vibration (i.e. thoughts/emotions).  If we are stuck in a state of fear, we will attract things to be fearful about.  If we emanate love and gratitude, we receive more things to be grateful for.
 
Whatever it is you'd like to manifest (money, health, peace, time, etc.), you will keep these things away by holding the perspective of: "Oh man, I wish I had that, I never get what I want, etc.".  All that does is affirm what you do not have and adds to your resistance versus your receptivity.  Rather, you give gratitude for already having the thing you desire, despite not having it yet.  This is where it gets challenging for many people.  They may feel disingenuous giving thanks for something they do not have, instead they focus on their lack because that is their physical reality.  Unfortunately, this perspective only keeps abundance further away.
 
"Okay, so what do I do?"
 
You feel the somatic feeling in your body of how great it would be to have (fill in the blank) in your life.  Think about your rent being paid next month, or your car being repaired, or the means to pay off your debt, or even that shiny new ring you've been eyeing.  Start saying "Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you" for this item.  REALLY feel the relief in your body, knowing it is yours.  How would it feel knowing you can live another month, knowing you can commute to work safely, knowing this looming shadow of debt has dissolved, or the feeling of beauty and contentment for owning this ring you always wanted?  
 
And when I say you have to feel it... I mean like... fall to your knees, and throw your arms up to the universe in gratitude.  Let the tears stream down your face in gratitude for what you have.  The energy of intention and emotion alchemizes the quantum soup that surrounds you, physically altering your external reality, attracting what you desire to you.
 
Don't take my word for it - try it!  Only good can come from it.  And it just feels GOOD to do!  Plus, after all the worrying about scarcity you've been doing, don't you deserve a break, and to feel relief for a change?  Yes, yes you do.

May you manifest miracles with your Gratitude! Heart

(Stay tuned for Part Two - How to Manifest with Gratitude)

 
Do you increasingly feel like things aren't right in the world?  Perhaps it's getting harder to get up each day?  Do you feel anxious, not your best, or overwhelmed by external energies?  Do you sometimes wish to hide from the world?  If so, you're in good company, as the majority of us (especially highly-sensitive people) are feeling that fear...
 
But wait!  There's good news, everyone!
 
I'm going to share the simplest, QUICKEST way to move your energy out of fear.... it almost seems too easy, but trust me, it works!
 
Using myself as an example, I wake up each morning in a state of fear and panic.  My PTSD is triggered upon the realization I'm out of the astral realm and back in the density.  I've never not woken up in fear.  It's a terrible way to start the day.  I do not recommend it.  But if you're like me, I'm going to share a technique I've found to be a lifeline:  an Attitude of Gratitude.
 
Here's what to do:
Upon awakening, and your heart begins to race, I want you to immediately  think "Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you", repeatedly, for at least a minute.  Keep mentally vibrating "Thank you".  You'll start to notice your body relaxing.  You'll start to notice your heart rate slowing.  You'll being to feel a soothing warmth in the body. 
 
Once your body starts to calm down, you can be more specific/creative.  Ones I like to say are:  "Thank you, bed, for being so comfy", "Thank you, home, for keeping me warm and safe", "Thank you today, for all the wonderful things coming my way".
 
From this calm, clear space you can begin your morning affirmations, meditations, and/or mirror work.  From this space, you can decide how you want to be today, what face you want to show the world, how you want to act, and how you want people to receive you.  You'll soon realize that ultimately YOU get to decide how your day goes, especially when you make time for yourself in the morning to set your vibration, and mitigating morning panic is the first step!
 
Practice an Attitude of Gratitude ANY time you feel fear.  Whether it be waking up, public speaking, paying your bills, performing, walking through a rough neighborhood, etc.  Identify something in your field of vision to appreciate (such as a beautiful flower), or simply think "Thank you".  You'll be amazed at how quickly your body calms down!  Gratitude is the Highway to Love, and love is the highest vibration of all.  Not even fear can stand in its way. Heart

When a new pain develops, we often respond with "Oh, what now?" or "Great, just what I need!"  In that moment, we are cursing our body.  We see this aching foot, or pain in our side as a "problem to fix", and we go to war with ourselves.  Yes, it is causing an issue and yes, you want it remedied, but HOW you view/feel about it makes the difference.  If you are hating your foot for hurting, you are hating part of yourself.  No healing can come from punishment, of yourself or your foot.

 
In this moment of awareness, give yourself permission to pause.  Take a timeout.  Notice the thoughts in your mind, and the feelings in your heart.  Are they loving?  Or are they punishing?  You don't need to punish yourself.  You didn't do anything wrong.  You are not a bad person.  You are hurting and need nurturing.  You feel vulnerable and need support.  That's really okay!  You are good, my dear.  In fact, you've always been good!  You ARE good, and you DESERVE to be loved... most importantly, by you.
 
So the next time "something else pops ups", instead of getting angry or frustrated, I want you to do this:
 
Close your eyes, and place your hand where it hurts.  Take a deep breath.  Hold this spot and imagine sending love from your heart, down your arm, through your hand into this area.  Imagine your love is a glowing golden light that is enveloping this area, releasing the pain.  With every exhale, feel your body relaxing more.  Think about this pain point with pure, unconditional love.  Say "<name pain point>, I love you, thank you for getting my attention, I am here now, I am with you, I love you."  Do this for a few minutes. 
 
Then, imagine your adult self putting your hands on the same pain point of a 3-year-old version of yourself.  See yourself holding little you.  Imagine holding this precious child closely, and whisper softly, "I love you.  I love you.  I really, really love you.  Thank you.  I am here.  I am with you.  I have you.  I won't ever leave you.  I love you."
 
Give yourself a few moments to sit in silence and allow the energy to integrate.  If tears arise, let them flow.  It's just energy moving. 
 
Thank you for loving you.  You are SO good, my dear. Heart

Do you ever find yourself staring off into space, not wanting to move or do anything?  Do you ever feel numb, emotionally blocked, or slightly agitated by everything, perhaps even a tinge of self-loathing?  Like you're frozen in a static state of disconnection and angst?  If so, you are NOT alone!

 
We may exist in an elevated state for days or weeks, then suddenly find ourselves knocked off-course, suddenly flailing in tumultuous seas, just trying to keep our head above water.  This feeling can easily turn into depression if we're not careful.
 
So what can you do to feel more connected?  Simple answer:  Go Within.
 
But how?  Here's some ways:
 
1). Meditation - Breathe deep, eyes closed, sit/lie still for 15 minutes, focus on your breath.  Allow thoughts to pass like clouds in the sky.  Witness, acknowledge, then let the thought go.  Return focus to your breath.  
 
2). Yoga or Dance around - (Kundalini Yoga!) Stretch, move, have fun.  Low-impact, but move your body.  Dance like no one's watching!  Except maybe your cat.
 
3). Chant/Hum - Repeat OM for 1-2 minutes and you will feel the difference.
 
4). Reiki Session (or self-Reiki* for those attuned) - Reiki is like meditation to an exponential degree, it solidly re-connects you.
 
5). Epsom/Sea Salt Baths - Add some Ylang-Ylang essential oil & a few Lepidolites for a deeper state.
 
Anytime we're feeling disconnected and melancholy, self-care is our highway to re-connection! Heart
