When I look at my life I’m surprised by how much of what I am living today is something that when I was younger I must have had a thought such as, “I like this!”, “I want this.”, “it’d be nice to be like this!”. For instance when I was growing up I lived off and on with my Nana and Tata (my grandparents). They lived in Lemon Grove, a suburb of San Diego, CA. Their home sat on a quarter of an acre on a canyon’s edge. No houses behind them. It was pure heaven to me. Many mornings throughout my childhood I would go in the backyard and look out onto the vast property and take in the fresh air, all the tree’s and plants. I felt as though I was the only person for miles around. I loved their property. Fast forward forty some years and I’m sitting in my spa that sits in my deck that overlooks the canyon’s edge. It’s a beautiful easy spring morning, the sun is beginning to rise and there’s a lovely chill in the air. There are many plants and shrubs near by. A large tree about 30 feet away swaying in the wind that all the birds are called to. These birds are chirping their morning song, chirp, “good morning, life is good”, chirp, chirp, “good morning, life is good”. As I enjoy the warm soothing water against my entire body and take in the peaceful scenery my heart sings and I am filled with deep appreciation as I realize this wasn’t always the case. I had always longed for this spa. I didn’t know if it would ever happen and yet there I sit enjoying all the outer pleasures of my backyard canyon view with the flora, birds and sky. I wanted this spa. I visualized it. I felt myself sitting in it with its wellness properties yet I never imagined the joy that the setting would give me. It’s as though Spirit (God, Creator, Goddess, fill in the blank with whichever name works for you) said, “Stephanie you want a spa? Ok, I’m gonna do you one even better! I remember every request you have made since your first breathe and I will pull together many of them and deliver them in one beautiful package, and here it is!”
As I am sitting and enjoying my spa from this incredible view with all the birds singing good morning to me and the hummingbird buzzing near by sounding like a mini UFO, it occurs to me that I, long ago had asked for a home on a canyon’s edge with no neighbors behind me and here I sit. I never went looking for it and yet here it is. I had asked and Spirit had delivered it with all its glory. And that my friends is why I love practicing and living the art of allowing. Being in the flow of life. Feeling as good as I can, as often as I can, for as long as I can. When I do the “feeling good” work, I feel better more of the time and my life gets better and better. And I enjoy myself along the way. It is well worth the 5, 10 or even 15 minutes it may take me to feel a little bit better and than a little bit better until before I know it I’m feeling pretty darn good. Because, the universal law of attraction is always working. In every moment LOA (law of attraction) as I lovingly like to refer to it, is responding to my thoughts and energy as well as yours. Because what we think about will come about. I love teaching my clients about this art and witnessing their transformation. Giving them tools and techniques so they too can be in the flow and allow their lives to feel better and therefore be better one day at a time. Because really the only reason why we want absolutely anything and everything we want, is because we think we will feel better in having it. Once we realize and begin to make “feeling good” our main objective, then life will continue to get better and better. It has to. Law of attraction insists upon it. Granted we’re not always going to feel good however when we make this our main objective to the best of our ability at any given moment, that’s when the change occurs and the magic begins. I call it magic because it looks and feels like magic however it really isn’t magic it’s the powerful law of attraction at work. Really cool people, places and things will come along.
This is the whole purpose of my work as a transformational life coach and the purpose of this blog. I want to remind you of how powerful, blessed and abundant you are. To assist you in flipping the switch of your thinking to better feeling thoughts and therefore be a match to anything and everything you are wanting to live, be, do and have. Here’s to us living a really good life. Cheers!
