Law Of Attraction
Everyone's been talking about it - heck, you are reading about it right here. What are they talking about? This phenomenon we call the Law of Attraction.
People always seem to ask the same question, does it really work? The answer - YES!
Absolutely, unquestionably, and eventually it always does when we apply the proceeding principal. .
What I am about to offer is what that next step is. It is a very common word, that when applied, along with the attraction principle, will bring you what you desire even faster...the word is - ACTION!
All successful people understand that simply 'wishing' for something is great. It gets the ball rolling, so to speak, and opens our minds and hearts to the possibility of something special.
Now combine that with positive, forward thinking, action steps and you can attain anything you have your sights set on at an amplified speed.
It works like this...
Imagine someone sitting in their living room and saying to themselves, "I would LOVE a fruit tree in the backyard."
Well, that's great - and it puts the law into motion.
(Let me ask you, what would it take to make that desire materialize right away?)
They would go to the local nursery, and pick up a fruit tree, drive it home, dig a hole, fertilize it, keep it watered along with weeds away from its roots....right?
Then after an incubation period of about two years, it blooms, and produces fruit....and what do you know?
Viola! You have yourself a fruit tree in your backyard.
Sure, you manifested it and applied the laws of attraction (heck you are the one who wanted it in the first place); but then you did something many are simply not willing to do ...you took action!
You put the Law of Attraction INTO action!
So many people miss this key ingredient.
They may desire wealth, romance, security, happiness, etc...and believe they will receive it overnight.
If that was so, everyone would win the lottery that plays each time, or fall in love whenever they left the house.
As we know, life does not work that way.
We have to take certain steps in order to have our dreams fulfilled, such as learn to budget and open an investment program, or enroll into a dating service, etc...
You are a smart person; that is why you are reading this right now...you want to move forward and are willing to open your mind to new ideas.
Here is my suggestion.
Within these pages, you will find an abundance of ideas to create a vision of what is important to you. Once you have the clarity of what that something is -
Write beside it what action steps you could take right now, today, to move closer to making that dream a reality.
Then do something crazy -
Take Action, and make it so.
Your very own fruit tree is waiting for you; now roll up your sleeves, and get to digging...before you know it, you'll be enjoying the sweet fruit of your efforts, too!

Quit Smoking Patch Good Or Bad
When smoking your body and brain get used to receiving nicotine and they become addicted. The problem when quitting is that although you want to stop smoking your organism will continue to ask for nicotine. Then it's when the withdrawal symptoms set in, causing cravings. This is the reason why quitting is so hard for the most of us.
Fortunately for us, today there are all sort of treatments for the smokers who want to quit. One of the most used methods at the moment is the quit smoking patch.
What is a Quit Smoking Patch
The quit smoking patch is a small, self-adhesive patch that is used when wanting to stop smoking. It is a form of therapeutic nicotine that you have to stick it to your skin in order for it to work. When attached to the skin nicotine will enter your bloodstream at a constant rate, during a period of 24 hours. The quit smoking patch works as an aid that is meant to help you quit smoking by reducing nicotine craving symptoms, until you are completely cured and don't need to smoke anymore.
The quit smoking patch comes in different strengths and sizes. When you start the quitting process it is usually best to first start with the strongest patch and then slowly go from one to another, until you get to the weakest one available. And after a while you will completely stop to use any kind of quit smoking patch. Then the process will end.
Advantages and Disadvantages of using the Quit Smoking Patch
The advantages of using the quit smoking patch, or the nicotine patch as it is sometimes called, is that it provides your body and brain with a constant supply of nicotine, without you having to think about it all the time. This way it also helps you slowly forget about the smoking habit, because you won't feel the need to do it any more.
The disadvantages of using the quit smoking patch is that they can provoke different irritations to the skin and they are pretty expensive, although if you consider the money that you would spend on cigars they don't look so expensive anymore. It is also believed that the quit smoking patch causes the person wearing it to have strange dreams if it goes to bed with the patch on. Unfortunately if you don't wear it during sleep, the next day when you wake up you will probably feel the need to smoke or you would feel agitated, and it would take some time before the new patch will start working.
But the biggest disadvantage that the quit smoking patch has is that if you smoke while having it put on or just shortly after removing it, you could suffer nicotine overdose, which can even lead to death. That is why you should be very careful when using the quit smoking patch.
Tips For Curing Insomnia
Throughout our lifetime it is surely inevitable that we will each battle with insomnia at one time or another. Insomnia - the ability to fall asleep or stay asleep - can have disastrous ramifications; ongoing sleep deprivation can interfere with daily life making us unable to concentrate and even instigating far greater health concerns such as depression.
For those who suffer nightly, curing insomnia can mean the difference between days spent in an exhausted fog and a productive, healthy life. Subsequently, there are more and more products hitting retail shelves that claim to hold the secret for curing insomnia. And while there are many fantastic prescription and over-the-counter medications that will help you sleep in the short term, there are alternatives that are worth trying beforehand.
Curing insomnia may begin with simply making some changes in your bedtime routine. It may be of benefit to build new habits surrounding sleep. Try going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day to encourage your body to adopt this schedule. Make your bedroom a haven for sleep; don't watch television or read in bed. Instead, come to bed when you are ready for sleep. Make your bedroom dark and comfortable and use music or white noise to help soothe yourself to sleep.
In the spirit of curing insomnia, you may even begin to implement some pre-sleep rituals as well. Eliminate exercise, alcohol, and heavy foods prior to bed; try stretching, deep breathing, or simple yoga poses; meditate for a period of time before bed; or sip some caffeine-free tea. If you find that you're unable to fall asleep, then leave your bed until you feel sleepy enough to try again. Do not make your bed a place you associate with tossing and turning.
For ongoing sleep issues, it's important to work towards curing insomnia even during your waking hours. Limit alcohol and caffeine during the day - both of which can work to interrupt sleep during the night.
Curing insomnia may take some trial and error. If you find that even after some lifestyle adjustments that you are continuing to struggle with sleep, then it's best to see your doctor.
Overcoming All Types Of Jealousy
Time has flown by so fast and many things have changed. Lives of people have become so fast-paced that somehow things like love and happiness have taken a backseat to career, business or money. Communications are centered not on how to foster relationships but on how to make the money tree grow.
Because of this, quite a lot of things have been taken for granted and people are slowly shying away from emotions that are the core of living. As a result, many feelings are harbored inside and these include regret, resentment and even the lurking green-eyed monster, jealousy.
This purely negative feeling that is known as jealousy is not only limited to your insane urge to grab at the hair of the woman your husband or boyfriend has been seeing behind your back. Jealousy could also be applied to the feelings of resentment that you have over the promotion of your colleague or your husband. It is also your inability to express your anger over why your husband treats your kid with more respect than he does you.
For those who are under the spell of this green-eyed monster, jealousy is a feeling that devastates them to the core and even results in them feeling great extent of anguish and pain. However, jealousy will not only affect the people who feel it, but also the people who surround them. Even if they try their hardest to hide their jealousy, it will always come out by the way they treat the people around them and how they will just allow it to ruin lives and relationships.
The basic approach to overcoming jealousy is knowing the reason behind it and understanding why it is happening. Usually, jealousy boils down to low self-esteem, insecurities and even huge love for a partner. While it is really great to love your partner so much, remember that anything that borders on the extreme is also bad and could just lead to hurt and devastation. Low self-esteem and insecurities are also two components of jealousy that should be gotten rid of.
If you are really intent on seeking help for your jealous tendencies, then maybe you could ask a hypnotherapist to treat you. Through hypnosis, your therapist will be able to go beyond the barriers that are keeping you from thinking positive thoughts. He will be able to delve into the negative blocks that are lodged in your subconscious and ease them out until you will be free of them. Once this happens, you are already able to overcome the lowness of your self-esteem as well as break away from your insecurities.
Then, all your jealous feelings will just fly out the window. Once the green-eyed monster is gone, you will finally be able to foster a relationship that is based on confidence and trust and be free from the anguish of always doubting.
Time Management Is Must To Save You Of Lots Of Future Stress
In the highest flights of their meditation, the realized souls proclaimed, "Kalaya Tasmaiah Namah!" meaning thereby, "Time, please accept our salutations!"
Time is "all time" great! It is fleeting! You can never catch it!
Time and tide tarry for none!
You know the good old saying, "If wealth is lost, nothing is lost, if health is lost, something is lost and if time is lost, everything is lost!"
What is time management? The time concept of the spiritualists is different. The time concept of the materialists is different!
How many all-time great definitions can be given about time?
"A stitch in time saves nine!" What nine? I do not know.
"Do right things at the right time!" No doubt about it. One should not do the right things at the wrong time or wrong things at the right time!
You have 24 hours in a day. I too have that many hours only. Then how is that you are a better organized person than me? How is that, you always looked a stress free, relaxed personality, though handling various complex situations and take important decisions?
That is because, you have better time management concept. You do everything systematically! I am always confused about priorities. What to handle when! The golden rule is never to postpone things for tomorrow, what you can do today. I would like to go even further. Tomorrow never comes; today will be too late; do it just now!
To say it poetically about time management:
"One thing at a time, and that done well,
Is a very good rule as many can tell,
So, if you want to gain your way,
Work while you work and play while you play!
That is the way, to be happy and gay!"
Right things happen at the right time and sometimes, wrong things happen at the right time. But when you stay away with this golden rule of managing your time well, you are definitely going to experience lots and lots of stress.
Stress does not come on its own. It always travels via various careers such as tensions, frustrations, anxiety and others.
So, manage your time today so that you don't look for stress management counselor tomorrow.
Expect With Confidence
Often our expectations are based on the assumptions we have about people or groups of people. The same is true of us. Have you ever noticed how your expectations become reality in your personal life? Expectation is literally a self-fulfilling prophecy. We do this consciously and subconsciously. Remember the kid in grade school who was always really rowdy and disruptive? Sometimes if people already assume they are perceived a certain way, then that is indeed exactly how they will act, even if they don't mean to. The rowdy kid in grade school knew everyone perceived him as disruptive, and so he was. The teacher expected bad behavior, and the expectations were fulfilled.
Consider the profound impact this can have in your own life. Are the assumptions and expectations you have about yourself liberating or victimizing? There are countless examples of "self-fulfilling prophecies," or the Law of Expectations at work in everyday life. Ever notice how people who think they're going to be fired suddenly experience a drop in the quality and enthusiasm for their work? Then what happens? They get fired! Their belief causes them to act a certain way, and those expectations then work to bring about the very thing that at first was only a figment of their imagination.
In another study, second graders listened to statements from their teachers before taking a math test. There were three types of statements: expectation, persuasion, or reinforcement. The expectation statements went something like, "You know your math really well!" or "You work really hard at your math." Persuasion statements involved sentences like, "You should be good at math." or "You should be getting better math grades." Finally, for the reinforcement statements, teachers said things like, "I'm really happy about your progress" or "This is excellent work!" Now, what do you think the results were? The scores were the highest in the "expectation" category! Why were the expectation statements the most effective? They created personal assumptions within each student. Those assumptions conditioned the actual external results.
Finding Passion Purpose Uncover Your Hidden Clues
Did you ever have a parent tell you, possibly after you had asked one too many questions, "Curiosity killed the cat!"
Were you taught the story of Pandora who was given a box of gifts from the gods with instructions never to open the box? Unfortunately her curiosity got the better of her and she opened the box that released all the misfortunes that would plague mankind forever.
These and other childhood messages paint curiosity as bad and dangerous, something to avoid. So is it any wonder a child brimming with questions and innate curiosity becomes an adult who is stuck or dissatisfied with life, lacking the natural ability to be curious?
What if curiosity doesn't kill the cat or unleash misfortune?
What if curiosity gives you clues to what lights you up, to your passions and purpose?
What if curiosity offers an antidote to judgment of yourself and others?
Curiosity can be one of your most valuable allies in discovering and creating a life you love.
Curious? Read on.
Clues to Passion & Purpose
When using the tool of "checking your lights" to determine if an idea, activity, or goal energizes and enlivens you, most of the time you are clearly lit up or not. Sometimes, though, you are not strongly "lights on" and yet you sense a spark of light, a subtle increase in your energy. You're curious about something.
Your curiosity is worth pursuing: it offers clues to explore and steps to take to discover what you are passionate about. Follow the sparks of your curiosity. Journey the paths you haven't traveled before and be open to new interests and passions that could unfold.
You might even have an experience like mine: an initial spark of curiosity led me to discover my calling.
In my case, I had long known I preferred to be the question "asker" rather than the question "answerer" in social and business situations. I saw no relation, though, between this and the life calling I'd been seeking for years. Then I attended a Clarity International workshop to learn what lit me up. I was told I had "curiosity" about "interviewing." I was also curious about the process my Clarity coaches were using and the profound effect that process was having on people. So I followed my curiosity.
I attended more Clarity events and began Clarity coaches' training, staying curious and noticing what lit me up. Eventually I had the opportunity to "interview" workshop participants, asking questions in a way that helped them discover what truly lit them up. When I used my questioning skills to help others find their passions - I had found my own passion and purpose! All this from following my initial sparks of curiosity.
This experience definitely made me a believer in the power of curiosity!
I often ask clients to 'stay curious' about something or to follow their curiosity. When they do, they often discover something that helps them create more pleasure, passion, and purpose in work or life.
That's not all though. What else do you think curiosity can do for you?
Antidote to Judgment
Do you tend to be critical of yourself and others? That's a habit or trait that many of us have. Curiosity is an amazing antidote to judgment. It is impossible to be curious and critical at the same time.
Try it! Think of someone or something you judge. Now flip your switch to curiosity. You must be sincere; if you're just pretending to be curious, it won't work. However, if you can play with your mind and focus on something in that person or situation that you're genuinely curious about, you cannot be judgmental at the same time.
Here's an example. You're stopped at a traffic light and when the light turns green the car in front of you doesn't go. You could start thinking "What's wrong with that woman holding everybody up?"
Instead, you could switch to curiosity with questions like "Did that woman just get some bad news?" Or "Is my being stopped here keeping me from getting into an accident further down the road?"
Judgment. Curiosity. Which would be less stressful? Which is lighter and more fun? Which has more possibilities in it?
By the way, this example was prompted by a story in O Magazine in which the woman who didn't go at the green light was desperately trying to save her baby who was choking. We never really know what's going on with other people, do we?
Curiosity is valuable in so many ways. It gives us clues to passion. It shifts us out of our judgments. It also fuels our learning. And it's a great tool to get an enlivening conversation going at cocktail parties and other social events.
Have I piqued your curiosity about curiosity? I hope so!
So now what?
In Your Life
Curiosity is like a muscle: the more you use it, the stronger it gets. When you value, nurture, and follow your curiosity it will grow. Try playing with your curiosity.
Each day set your intention to be curious. You can do this in the morning, before meetings and social events, whenever you realize that curiosity would be a good ally (which is usually!).
If you want to see what clues to your passions and purpose are hidden in your curiosity, try this:
1) What's something you are curious about? A person, an idea, a place, a book, an activity. Your curiosity could be a tiny glimmer or voracious.
2) What could you do to explore this curiosity? Make it a small, doable action that lights you up. Of course, if you want to do something big and bold, go for it!
3) What do you learn when you take this action? Do you have more energy, more curiosity? Do you want to take another step in this direction?
By the way, sometimes when you are curious about something and explore it a bit, your curiosity drops. This is fine. You just check this item off your list and move toward the next spark of light.
4) Repeat as desired.
For, as Eleanor Roosevelt said, "I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity."
The 7 Components Of Vision
When we hear about vision, we often hear the words purpose, dreams, calling, passion and gifts used synonymously. It's time to clear this up once and for all! There are seven components to vision and understanding each one will help clarify your path.
First, let's talk about this word "dream" that you have heard so much about and how it fits into vision. While a dream is an important part of the puzzle, it is just the beginning. Dreams open up your imagination and ability for your mind to "see" what it is that you can conceive for your life. Many of us model our dreams after the lives of others. While dreams open the doorway, there are 7 components of vision that are through the door that dreams assist you in opening. Dreams alone will not take you to your promised land. If you've been dreaming, it's time to gain the clarity you need to truly manifest your vision.
Purpose. The first component of vision is purpose. Your purpose tells you the theme of your life; the reason you exist. To uncover your purpose, ask yourself, "If money and time were not an issue, what I would do and If I could make plenty of money any way I chose, what would I do?" Your purpose gives you a general idea and direction to move, but by itself, it is not the whole picture.
Desires of your heart. The second component of vision is the desires of your heart. The desires of your heart go beyond your surface-level dreams to those things you deeply long for, desire and are willing to work for. The desires of your heart compel you in a way that won't let you go. What do you really want?
Scripture tells you that God will give you the desires of your heart if you put His Kingdom first. While dreams require nothing in particular and may or may not come to pass, desires of your heart require obedience and are part of God's grace, mercy and blessings that He has in store for you.
Passion. Your passion consists of those things that bring you joy and fulfill you when you are doing them. When you are operating in your passion, you experience a flow and effortlessness that makes it easy to stay the course. When you are passionate you are excited, inspired, motivated, focused, fulfilled, and walking in your greatness. Within your passion lies the clues that will keep you going. What do you love doing? What are you passionate about?
Gifts and talents. The next aspects of vision to talk about are your gifts and talents. Your gifts are those things that just come naturally to you and are not actually taught, they were deposited in you from God. If you did go to school to learn more about them, you probably excelled in them or you were bored because it came so easily to you. Gifts are sometimes challenging to identify because they are such a part of you. What gifts have God bestowed upon you? Hidden in your gifts are the additional clues you need to understand the methods God has given you to make a difference in your area of purpose.
Yet, gifts are only half of this component. The other half of this component is your talent. Your talent consists of those things you are naturally good at, but need to practice developing to perfect. What are you good at, but need to be great at in order to effectively operate in your gifting? Together, your gifts and talents create an additional dimension to understanding your specific Kingdom assignment.
Area of service. Your area of service is the particular target audience or group of people you were put here to serve. Another way to think about your area of service is your special niche. You are a Shepard. When you are a Shepard, your sheep recognize and respond to your voice and call. God has created you to oversee a flock that can only hear your voice. Who is your flock? Are they scattered all over the hillsides waiting for you to live your vision? Are they not being taken care of because you are in fear or are they tied up tending to the daily obligations that fill your calendar, but are not God's purpose for you? Who were you born to serve? What does your flock need?
Calling. I also refer to your calling as your altitude. Your calling or altitude is the scope of your Kingdom assignment (within your child's school, the city, state, region, nation or world). Be careful not to confuse your calling with what you think it would be fun to do. Be careful not to covet someone else's calling. If God did not drop that vision into your spirit, it is not for you. Focus on what God has shown you as your specific role. You will be completely fulfilled carrying out your calling even though others may be doing similar work on a broader scale.
Together, all the 7 components of vision should assist you in clarifying the full picture of what you were born to do. Please take some time to get clear about it because it holds the power to change the course of the rest of your life. With all 7 components, you now have all of the tools you need to take the steps toward making your vision a reality.
Are there really any meditation secrets?
Well, the answer is yes and no.
One of the dictionary definitions of the word secret is "unknown to others". So if someone knows something about meditation and you don't know that same thing, then as far as you are concerned, it's a meditation secret.
Of course, once you discover the secret, it's no longer a secret to you. But it could still be a secret to others.
So really we're talking about meditation secrets in the loosest possible sense of the term.
What sort of meditation secrets might there be? Since I don't know you, I cannot possibly know what you have already learned about meditation and what you still have to learn.
Regardless of that, I'm going to guess that you may or may not know how binaural beats, sometimes known as brain music, can deepen your meditation experience. If you use music as a background whilst you meditate, experiment with a professionally prepared binaural beats track in the background as well. I think you'll notice a positive difference the next time you meditate if you include them.
You may also think that it takes hours of practice to meditate. The secret here is that it's focus that counts. A truly focused meditation session lasting only, say, 15 minutes, can have as much power as hours of unfocused meditating. Be present the next time you meditate. Keep yourself focused. Again, I suspect you'll notice a positive change from this small secret.
Alternatively, you could hunt out small groups of people whose meditation methods are almost unknown in the Western world. The knowledge contained in these small groups is probably the closest to a true secret, hidden in some of the most obscure places in the world. Although with the power of the internet, even this knowledge is likely to become more widespread.
