Do You Feel Like You Won the Lottery?

§ Filed under I feel like I won the Lottery, Law of Attraction, Prosperity § No Comments

Do ya?  Well, do ya?  feel lucky, that is.  Picture me doing my best Eastwood impression circa 1970.  I was watching the TLC channel on Saturday night…a show called How the Lottery Changed my Life.  Before you go thinking that I must have no life at all cause I am home on a Sat. night AND I am watching The Learning Channel hear me and hear me well:  “You don’t know me…uh-uh! don’t you go thinkin’ you know me cause you don’t know me.”

Anyway, I am getting somewhere with this…my point is this.  (long story short) ~from the show~husband and wife trying to have a baby for years…going to fertility clinic for years to no avail…finally the wife’s sister volunteers to act as a surrogate and have this couple’s baby.  The baby is born (darling girl) and everyday as the husband and wife look at this precious miracle they say aloud, “I feel like I won the lottery.”  Every day–several times a day. Soooo, one Christmas the husband buys the wife some scratch off tickets…and, yep…you guessed it.  They win the lottery!!

Now, as a Certified Law of Attraction Coach, this makes serious sense to me. We attract from our feelings.  And when we’re feeling great…appreciative…like we won the frickin’ lottery…the Law of Attraction or that Great Cosmic Mirror reflects right back to us what we are feeling. It is why it is so important that we begin to take responsibility for our feelings…when we feel better~life gets better.  My friend Max likes to say, “The better it gets-the better it gets.”  and I believe her because it is happening to me and many of the people in my circle.  You are worth choosing the better feeling thought.  It takes a little bit of time and commitment but it is sooo very worth it.  Feeling Example:  “I feel like my life sucks…there is a dark cloud over me.” or “I feel like I won the lottery.” Which thought is a better feeling thought?  I think it was Henry Ford that said, ” if you think you can or if you think you can’t-you’re right.”

Of course, I have seen manifesting ones desires happen very quickly…IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE…  But, in general, there is a time of gestation. Julie (my daughter and business partner) and I call this “Buffer Time“.  It is the time it takes to get from the non physical realm to the physical.  Next time, more on BUFFER TIME…

Blessings and Grit,

Einstein’s Theory on Imagination

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle § No Comments

Hello Lovelies,

Facebook reminded me of a post I did 6 years ago.  And it holds true even more today.

Einstein said, “Imagination is the preview of your life’s coming attractions.” What are you imagining?

So what are you imagining?  It reminds me that the work we do is always an inside out job.  And you have to see it clearly on the inside first before we can manifest it in the outside world.  Our heart (not our physical heart), is like a garden full of lush soil.  And whatever seeds we are sewing, you can be sure will start to grow.  So what’s going to grow in your garden?

If someone cuts you off in traffic, is your first reaction going to be to give them the finger or to curse them out?  Or have you heard yourself say, “I don’t get mad I get even.”  None of us are perfect here.

But to become conscious of the seeds we are sewing in our hearts is a worthy venture.  Let’s begin the weeding and culling process while the lovely fruits and vegetables begin to take root and grow.

You are worth it!

Dreams and Beliefs

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity Lifestyle § No Comments

Hello Lovelies,

I know I’m like a dog with a bone here, but I still want to talk about your dreams.  You see, I care for you.  And I want you to be and I want you to feel passionate and excited about your life.  Now I’m not talking about sell everything and move to Belize, even though I heard the scuba diving is pretty awesome.  But what I am saying is even though you have full busy lives: kids, grandkids, family, and businesses- I still believe there can be some small patch in your soul that you can resurrect for your unique dream.

So, what have you been planting lately?  Here in Illinois it’s almost time to plant the corn and soybeans.  And in the fall we will be harvesting a lot of corn and soybeans.

So I’m asking you today to simply reflect on the type of thought seeds you’ve been planting lately.  Are they seeds of discontent?  Are they seeds of non-belief?  Are they seeds of lack?  Perhaps even seeds of desperation?

I’d like to share a quick story.   My mother, God rest her soul,  whenever anyone asked her, “How ya doing?” she would always say, “I’m depressed.” Liked a well trained parrot, I picked up those same words-I’m depressed.  Even as a young girl, I used to proclaim that I was depressed whenever anyone asked me how I was doing.  Honestly, I didn’t even know what it meant.  It wasn’t until I was in college when some close friends were making fun of me because I  always said I was depressed, that I became consciously aware of what I was saying.  I was unconsciously planting the seeds of depression.  You bet I deliberately started planting different seeds from that point on.  And we wonder why depression can be multi-generational.

I’m saying all this because I want you to be aware of the thought seeds you are planting.  The thoughts you think relate to how you feel.  Our feelings are the results of our thoughts.  And you attract the good results you want with your feelings.  So where ever you’re at in your life let’s imagine it’s springtime.  And start planting seeds of expectation, joy, rebirth, and hope.  And let’s expect a bumper crop of good things this year.

So start believing.

Many Blessings this year,

-Christine Marie M.A

Morning all…Let’s make this a wonderful week full of appreciation and deep gratitude for all that we have.   It is such a joy to be able to look at what is right and what is working in our lives as opposed to what is wrong and what is not working.  Remember, Law of Attraction is like a boomerang..what you focus on or what you are giving out is what comes back to you.  So, wouldn’t you love joy and appreciation and happiness and ease and effortlessness and non-drama and non-trauma to come back to you.  Try feeling Like you won the Lottery.  That feels wonderful..and, as the song says, “Leave Your Worries On the Doorstep,”  Life can be so sweet on the Sunny Side of the Street.

Big Hugs,

Christine Marie

p.s.  Put on your calenadar the Clutterfly Effect Weekend starting on Friday May 17th with an AMPED UP AMP IT UP! and then we are doing a clearing the clutter weekend.  It’s a celebration for our release of our book “The Clutterfly Effect-Tweek Your Way to Total Transformation by Decluttering Your Life.”  There will be contests, prizes, and much fun:)

I Guarantee You’ll Like These Odds..

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Radio Show and Authors, Relationships § No Comments

This week on Life With The Girlfriends, Julie and I chatted about a chapter in our new book that’s being released this month. (finally)..The Clutterfly Effect.   This chapter is called the goal-den hour.  It’s a short-ish chapter but it is one of the most powerful.

The goal-den hour is based on the idea that one hour of interior or spiritual work is equal to ten hours of exterior work.  Deepak Chopra speaks to this idea.  Dr. Wayne Dyer talks about this.  Tony Robbins call this time his hour of power.  We call it our bookends to our day.  Whatever you may call it, know that it is important to your goals and overall well-being, as well.

I’m not a gambler but I love these odds.  One hour of interior or spiritual work is equal to ten hours of exterior work.  I heard Oprah talk about this in terms of alignment.  Getting into alignment with your goals and dreams and well-being is absolutely important.  So many of us spend time daily going in the opposite direction.  We have negative thoughts, we spend time fantasizing worse case scenarios, instead of spending that time getting into alignment.

So what’s in the goal-den hour?  Here are some ideas.  Inspirational and motivational reading.  Harlequin Romance novels don’t count ;o)..What about journaling?  Not a diary of your day’s activities, but a journal of what is going on spiritually and emotionally with you and the drection you are headed.  Affirmations are really great inside the goal-den hour.  Affirmations in the right direction.  How many times during the day do we affirm, “I’m such a loser-I can’t do anything right!”  Switch it to, “Every day in every way I’m gettng better and better.”  Or, whatever works for you.  Visualizations are awesome.  How about a visualization where you meet your awesome future self?  She lays it all out for you on how you gotto your dream and goals!

There’s plenty of fun and inspiring things that can go inside your goal-den hour.  Appreciation and gratitude work is important.  Remember, what we appreciate, appreciates.  How about some forgiveness work?  I know a couple who prays for an hour before bedtime.  Whatever works for you.

Get inside the goal-den hour and see how it can begin working for you.  One hour of interior work is equal to ten hours of exterior work.  I guarantee you will like those odds!!

Also, we had a wonderful interview with Sandy Alemian.  She is the author of the book “What was God Thinking?”  Sandy shares in her book, not only her challenges, but those of so many, around the themes of loss, relationships, finances, fear, truth and self-esteem.  She shares her life on these pages, and lets God lovingly bring her back to a place where fear doesn’t exist.

The Little Shop Said Closed for Remodeling

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle, Relationships § No Comments

My husband had to pick up some papers in Freeport this week.  I made the drive with him because I wanted to stop at one of my favorite candle stores.  As I approached the store, I saw a big red sign that said “closed.”  My heart sank.  Then I saw the rest of the sign.  It said, “Closed for Remodeling.”

I was instantly relieved.  Freeport has been hard hit by the economy and I thought my little hand made candle shop had been hit as well.  However, it was just closed for remodeling.  It’s not a no from the universe–it’s a not now.

It’s not a bad idea to consider being closed for remodeling in our own lives.  Taking some time off to rethink, re-imagine, refocus what’s going on in our lives, can be a really good thing.  In business, it’s good to take inventory.  You get to see what you have, what your missing, and what you’d like to have.

In your personal life, it may be time to be closed for remodeling for a while.  Maybe you want to change directions, revise your course or just do some major or minor interior or exterior decoration.  Everyone gets a chance to reinvent themselves.  Switch the decor up a wee bit.  Prepare for an upgrade.

With spring finally here, it may be an awesome idea for you and me to do a little remodeling.  It could be some physical remodeling.  It could be the remodeling of our business.  It could be the remodeling of our dreams.

Sometimes our dreams get stale.  It may be time to dust them off or shake them up or even grow them up.  Either way, this spring let’s consider being closed a bit for remodeling–or at the very least a really good spring cleaning.

xoxo

You’re Welcomed

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Relationships § No Comments

We all want New Opportunities, don’t we?  At least we say we do.  But when those New Opportunities come along, are you standing at the front door holding a big welcome sign?  That’s great.  That’s awesome.  You’re saying “I’m ready world,  Here I am just waiting for you and this New Opportunity.”

But what happens a week or two into this New Opportunity.   Is your life getting squeezed by the shiny new thing?  Did you miss you and your main squeeze’s date night?  Maybe you slept right through the Housewives of Beverly Hills (Kim is still kinda crazy even though she is allegedly sober).  Perhaps it’s been two weeks since you’ve shaved your legs.

If this New Opportunity is important to you, then you might want to consider clearing some clutter.  Your life may be filled to the brim.  There may not be any space for your New Opportunity. You may have to ask yourself, “What will I give up in order to become that which I am meant to be?”  My wish for you is that you are willing to ask this question and answer it with some form of personal decluttering.

The clutter may be emotional.  Am I willing to give up my fear of success/failure in order to behold this New Opportunity?  The clutter may be physical.  Am I willing to clean that closet and part with some items that I’m sure Goodwill will love in order to create space for my new business file cabinets etc?

Odds are the clutter is probably behavioral.  What behaviors might you give up and replace with that New Oportunity and all the steps that go with it?  Can you give up finding out who the baby daddy is on Maury Povich?  Can you give up having your home immaculate and settle for just welcoming?

I hope so.  I want that New Opportunity to walk right on past that Welcome sign on your front door and make itself home.  I want it to stir up your life with delicious dissarray and make your  little uncomfortable.  I want you to grow and evolve from this New s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g Opportnity.  Ready, set, grow…You are Welcomed.

Is it a Hobby? Or is it a Committment?

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle § No Comments

There comes that point in each of our lives where we inevitably have to ask ourselves how serious am I about this.  “This” could be anything that you find is always on your wish, dream, or desire list.  Yes, it is always there.  Year after year after year..

Did you ever stop and wonder how sometimes these things that are always on our wish list ends up getting sabotaged?  Life tends to shakes things up for us if we are continually in the realm of Hobbyist and by shaking things up it keeps us in status quo.  It becomes two steps forward and three steps back.

  Are you meaing to write that book?  Perhaps you have some pages written or you have stacksof 3×5 notecards filled with tidbits.  It might be just a well-meaning hobby.

If there is no real forward movement or if it is still sitting on your to-do shelf you might consider this–you have a hobby on your hands.  No judgment here.  It’s just good to know.  The care and feeding of Hobbies are different than the care and feeding of Committments.

However, if you’re at that crossroad where you are just plain tired of having that “thing” that is always on your wish list and you are ready to bring that dream or desire from a hobby into a committment,  there is no time like the present.

  Make this week all about  the steps to take to live in the committfment of your dreams.  Be prepared to deal with all the emotions and feelings that come up when you are truly ready to take that dream from a hobby to a committment.  Look that resistance in the face and see what’s inside of it.  You’re ready.

Intuition~Are you getting your downloads?

Hello Lovelies..

There has been so much chatter on the web about intuition lately.  Intution.  Is it going to give the numbers for the big jackpot?  Is it going to tell you where you are going to meet your soul mate?

For me, there are times that I get direct “hits.”  However, it’s not that often.  But I am always open to those direct hits.  In the matters of intuition I feel that Heart Work is much more important.

Maybe they are one and the same thing-maybe not.  But I know for sure we all have access to our Hearts.  Sure, it is a matter of cultivating our connection to our hearts..and it is important to learn how to make the 12 inch journey from our head down to our heart.  And, that takes time..attention..intention.  It takes learning to listen with our “inner ear” and it takes a real basic element of trust.

The cool thing about making the twelve inch journey is that you can look back on your life and say with no regrets, “I always listened to my heart.”  Really..that is cool. The heart has its own path and that is hardly ever a straight line.  In fact, it probably looks like a kaliedescope of puzzle pieces that is only made clear by unconditional love and unwavering trust. (“I’ll have a glass of each, bartender.”)

It’s important to add a small sentence or two on fear.  Fear is usually ego based..so if you find yourself in fear that is a real good time to quiet the monkey mind and connect to the heart.  The heart will calm you.  The heart will give you peace.  The heart will give you clarity.  The heart will give you courage.  In fact, the Latin root word of  the word courage is “heart.’

Is the path of the heart quick?  Probably not.  Why?  My take is it knows if you are truly ready and prepared for what you want.  The heart loves you in a way that you probably don’t even love yourself.  So, the next time someone offers you a free intuition course~come prepared to check in with your heart…you can trust your gut on that ;o)

get your mind out of the gutter..I said Goal-den Hour!!!

§ Filed under Law of Attraction, Prosperity, Prosperity Lifestyle § 108 Comments

Sign up here for our weekly Hot Topics..Jules and I aim to make the last six months of this year waaaay better than the first for all of us..so watch Hot Topics for what we have up our sleeves..

What to do with that goal-den hour?  It’s been said in many metaphysical circles that an hour of inner work is equal to 10 hours of external work.  Wow!!  So, we’re all about creating that extra goal-den hour a day of inner work so that we can leverage that extra 10 hours of external work.   10 minutes 6 times a day..taking time to consciously breathe…to meditate (there are many different ways)..take time to journal…your thoughts are the previews of your life’s coming attractions..how about creating a vision board or a mind map and then studying for ten minutes throughout the day…and the list goes on.  We know a very successful woman who creates 5 goal-den hours for herself each day.  She is proof positive of what can be created by doing the internal work first as leverage.  whoo hoo!

Join us Friday night May 21 @ 9:00 pm CST for Christine Marie and Julie Talk Authors!  Our guest will be Dr. Craig Martin author of Elemental Love Styles.  Love and Relationships..now that’s a Hot Topic!!  Come listen and ask your questions in the chatroom.

Cool Stuff Alert!!! Coming In June..”Do ya feel lucky?..well, do ya?  I hope you said yes..and then be on the lookout!

Peace..

and I hope you dance and keep dreamin’

Christine Marie

 

  So, may I ask you “Are you doing what you want?

This is a really good time to take stock and ask yourself are you on track for your dreams, desires, and goals?  Or, you may be saying to yourself “what dreams?  who has time for dreams when I barely have time to brush my teeth!”I hope you still are brushing your teeth and flossing as well~~at least those teeth you intend on keeping.

Consider the use of what Julie and I call “the Goal-den Hour.”  You start by giving yourself the gift of 10 minutes for yourself..six times a day.  First , use the first ten minutes just to breathe.  Consciously breathe.  Connect to the breath and big deep belly breaths for ten whole minutes.  You should begin to feel calmer and more open. 

During this time see yourself filling up with Love…all the love you will need for the day.  And if you run out~take some more time to fill up on this precious fuel.

If you haven’t signed up for our weekly ezine be sure you do..we love to stay connected to you!!
