Happy Post-Easter Love Bunnies!
I hope you all had a magnificent holiday. Easter, rebirth, new beginnings, spring sprung, AMEN/Ohhhh YEAH! What a revitalizing time! I am so excited about re-engaging and defining the Crazy Sexy Diet & Lifestyle for us all. Please keep your questions coming! The most popular will become full post topics. Before I dig into this weeks health topics (water, food journals, dry brushing) I thought it would be really helpful to get some psychological support from our resident Life Coach - Terri.
Know this, you are choosing the BRILLIANT road less traveled. You are heroic. You are a revolutionary and a leader. The planet bows to you, your cells bow to you. No matter what - keep going toots!
Take it away Terri......
MANIFEST VISUALIZE CREATE
This mantra and practice is one of the many tools in my tool belt that I use to create and maintain the Crazy Sexy Lifestyle. When you embark on this journey of change you need all the support, tips, tricks and how to’s that you can get your mitts on. There are many aspects of changing ingrained behavior that are challenging, especially if a health crisis is the motivation. My commitment to manifesting visualizing and creating has helped keep me on my Crazy Sexy Life path. This is not to say that I never go hurdling off my path, down the chocolate molten lava ravine because I do…but I don’t crucify myself and with the help of my pals and our community (www.my.crazysexylife.com) I get back on the green juice mostly raw path right quick.
My MANIFEST VISUALIZE CREATE winning formula works for me and inspires me. I share this technique with my life-coaching clients and frankly anyone that will listen. I, by no means, created this theory but I have harnessed its power. We have all heard much talk lately about manifesting dreams (THE SECRET), the laws of attraction in the universe (THE ABRAHAM-HICKS BOOKS) and the quantum physics of what is (WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW?) I was reminded of the power of intention recently when a very close friend shared her experience with me. With her permission and a name change or two, I will share it with you.
Tammi and her husband Michael moved to San Francisco two and a half years ago at the request of Michael’s firm with the implication of his being made partner in the foreseeable future. Tammi and Michael have a beautiful daughter, Chloe who was 2 when they moved. Tammi gave up her work in NYC to further Michael’s career and stay home with Chloe. The past two and a half years have been rough for them both. Michael’s firm recently gave him the bad news that he will NOT be making partner. Tammi’s second attempt at in-vitro fertilization failed. Chloe got wait listed for the Pre School of their choice and money was getting tight. Tammi was stressed constantly, holding worry and fear in her mind. When Tammi called in tears to share her upsetting news, I asked her if she would be open to some coaching. Eager for some relief, she agreed. I asked her to be specific about what she wanted in her life. She stated a healthy pregnancy, great job for Michael that makes him happy, chosen Pre School for Chloe and financial freedom. So we reworded all of her desires into the present tense:
I am so happy and grateful all good things come to us.
I am so happy and grateful for my perfectly healthy pregnancy.
I am so happy and grateful that Michael has many job offers to chose from and that his right and perfect job is here.
I am so happy and grateful money comes readily and easily (aka I am a money magnet!!)
I am so happy and grateful Chloe gets into and loves her new school.
I am so happy and grateful for our perfect health.
I am so happy and grateful for my peaceful inner life.
I am so happy and grateful for all of my joy and blessings.
We discussed that the most crucial part of successfully manifesting anything is being able to FEEL the EMOTION that accompanies what you desire as you visualize it. It is the feeling that will bring the experience to you. So get specific about the details and dream it into being. This is the law of attraction in the universe. What you hold in your mind is what you create. Although I DO NOT believe we created canSer, I DO believe we can create health. I asked Tammi to focus on her desired results and to quote THE SECRET, “don’t worry about the how.”
I invited Tammi to start and end the day with 90 seconds of gratitude. Mike Dooley, a contributor to THE SECRET and the creator of the website www.tut.com (Thoroughly Unique Thoughts- where I get my daily personalized message from the universe that inspires and tickles) suggests five minutes a day to intentionally manifest your dreams. He also suggests when you receive a big bill in the mail that you shout,” GOOD THING I’M RICH.” This suggestion made us both laugh (full disclosure: I do this whenever a big bill shows up much to my husbands amusement) and Tammi agreed to really put her energy into manifesting.
Last Saturday I got a call from Tammi. She went on to remind me of our manifesting conversation six weeks earlier. She told me that for the first time in her life she was able to say her affirmations and really feel relief and joy. Planting positive thoughts and results in her mind over and over changed the way she felt on a daily basis. She reported that while she was driving, swimming or cooking she was saying and feeling them. She was actively releasing negativity and consciously choosing to feel joy, freedom, and relief. It became second nature. She realized that she had used worrying to bind her anxiety. It created a false sense of DOING SOMETHING. Once she realized that what she was DOING was creating the opposite of her desired results by drawing more worry and fear to her experience, she said it was relatively easy to stop. She went on to share the amazing news of her healthy pregnancy, Michael’s multiple job offers, including a $25,000 bonus from his firm and Chloe’s school acceptance. I was filled with joy for my pal and all her created good fortune. I asked her to boil it down to a simple one-line explanation of what occurred and she said, “I just changed my mind.”
So what is the “take away” for you personally from Tammi’s story?
1. Ask. Identify your desire. Be as specific as possible. Write it down in the preset tense. Have fun!
2. Believe. Believe it is already yours. Have unwavering faith that what your desire is already yours. Conjure the feelings that go along with getting your desired results.
3. Receive. Begin to feel wonderful about whatever you are creating. Hold in your mind, I know it is on its way to me right now.
Since we are a group of doers, I will be starting a manifesting group on my.crazysexylife.com where we can commit to our goals and have them witnessed and supported by each other. In six weeks I will do a follow up blog with achieved results big and small. So get movin’ shakin’ and happy creatin’!
