I'm Living My Dream

Most nights whenever I get into bed, I pull out my notebook and write down my successes, any synchronicities, good news, signs, miracles, or something I am thankful for that day, before going to sleep. 

One night this past week, as I sat on my bed, notebook in hand, I began thinking how thankful I was to own my own business, be my own boss, have a wonderful relationship, and have a home to call my own.

When I suddenly realized, I am living my dreams. My dreams of 15 years ago!

Fifteen years ago, I was at an all time low.  

I had moved out of my home of 20 years, in a hurry, taking only whatever would fit into my car.  I spent six weeks basically living in my car, some nights sleeping over at family and friend's houses or staying at motels whenever I had any extra cashA drunk driver without insurance had crashed through the front of my business, and sales were at an all time low. Trying to extricate myself from a miserable, abusive marriage, needless to say, I was very depressed.

One night when I was seriously contemplating checking out of this game called life, I was standing idly in a bookstore, when a book fell off of a shelf and landed on my foot.  I picked it up, noticed the title, "You Can Heal Your Life", and said to no one in particular, "yeah right", and placed it back on the shelf.

As I stood there, I suddenly began to wonder, just how had that book had fallen off the shelf? Feeling curious, I reached up and pulled it out to take another look.

Opening it up to a random page, or so I thought, I will always remember what I read in that moment.

  "Your thoughts and beliefs of the past have created this moment, and all of the moments up to this moment.  What you are now choosing to believe and think and say will create the next moment and the next day and the next month and the next year...You are the power in your world! You get to have whatever you choose to think! This moment begins the new process.  Each moment is a new beginning, and this moment is a new beginning for you right here and right now!"

You Can Heal Your Life - by Louise Hay

And it was.  I bought that book and began to heal my life.  I began to change my thoughts and beliefs and set new goals.  Contrast does bring Clarity!

  • I wanted a home of my own.
  • I wanted to be a better supportive, loving mother
  • I wanted a healthy loving relationship with a wonderful man.
  • I wanted a successful, prosperous business. 

I did not know anything about the Law of Attraction, nor had I learned the processes and tools for deliberate creation, and it didn't happen overnight.
I wish I had known then, what I know now.

But it DID happen. Some things quickly, some more slowly.

Of course, whenever we achieve a goal, there is always a new goal.  We are ever expanding. As Abraham says, "We never get it done".

As I sat there on my bed and realized that I am now living the life of my dreams, of fifteen years ago, it gave me chills because I know that the dreams I hold for my future, are also in the process of coming true. What a feeling!

Take a look at your life.  What dreams have come true for you?
What dreams do you want to come true? 

As Louise Hay said, "You are the power in your world! You get to have whatever you choose to think!"

I agree.  

Love and Luck,
Lucky Lady

Christmas in July


Christmas in July.

I had heard the phrase before and just thought it was an excuse for a summer sale at various retail shops.

But this past week, when I turned on my cable tv music channel, looking for some music to listen to, out of curiosity I check out 'sounds of the season' and discover they are celebrating Christmas in July. 

I did not know that celebrating Christmas in July is actually a tradition in the southern hemisphere, (Australia, South Africa, etc), because of the desire to celebrate Christmas and enjoy some traditional holiday celebrations during their cold, snowy season.  

If you've read my post on How I Won a Trip to Las Vegas , you'll know I love Christmas music. It's my favorite part of the holiday season and I have numerous records, cassettes, and CD's to prove it. Although I usually only listen to them in November and December.

Anyway, this past Sunday, after a three mile run in the misty rain, which felt wonderful, while sitting on the floor cross legged, enjoying my breakfast of wheat flakes and fresh sliced strawberries, out of a Christmas bowl, while listening to Christmas music on the tv, I was aware of feeling really happy, of feeling good now.

And that's the key.  Find ways to feel good now. 


"You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey." 
Abraham 

On our journey from where we are now to where we want to be, one of our primary goals is to find ways to feel good now
 
This means not waiting until we have the relationship, the body, the home, or the job we desire before we can feel good.

What we are feeling now, is an indication of how we will feel then.  
 
Feeling good is personal.  Everyone is different. What makes one person feel good, can make another miserable.

Maybe running in the rain and celebrating Christmas in July, is not your idea of a good time.  

What is?  It's your choice, and so is feeling good.  We can choose to find ways of feeling good in every moment no matter what is going on around us.

Feeling good creates more experiences of feeling good.

If you are celebrating Christmas in July, I wish you a very Merry Christmas! 

Love and Luck,
Lucky Lady

I Gave it Away and It Came Back!

This week's post is a follow up to last week's post where I share my lucky secret for getting more of what you want.  Give it away.

Listen up Lucky Ladies and Gents, when you walk your talk, the Universe answers.

Here's what happened just this week.

A couple of weeks ago, I heard about a program being offered by a fellow coach about manifesting more money.

Well I don't know about you, but I am always willing to up my money vibration, get my money mojo flowing, and bring in more money and prosperity.

After all, whatever we place our attention and focus on we create more of.

That's exactly what the program offered, so I decided to join the party. 

The program didn't cost anything up front, you just agreed to "pay" 10% of however much money you manifested in the next 90 days.  Sounds like a deal to me!

As I received my email assignments each day I played along, finding pennies, nickels, dimes, and a quarter, etc.

If you've read my pennies from heaven story, then you know I love finding pennies!

About the seventh day, I decided to up my game by "priming the pump".  To show my appreciation I wrote out a check for $25 to the coach, and dropped it in the mail.  I told her this is an advance on some of the money that's coming my way. 


I imagined her joy and excitement at receiving money in the mail and it made me smile every time I thought of it.  Don't you love getting unexpected money in the mail?  I sure do.

Guess what happened?  

Seven days later, I received a totally unexpected, out of the blue, $297 cash gift in my paypal account!

How lucky is that? Does the Universe know how to deliver, or what?
You really do get what you give.

Is there something you want? Give it away!

Until next time, here's to your Lucky Life!

Whatever you want, give it away.



Is there something in your life that you want? 

Well here's my lucky secret for having it. Give it away. 

How can you give away something you want but feel you don't have? You can't.

In other words, I believe you can't give away, what you don't own. 

Totally confused? Hear me out.

I believe that if we can give to someone else, the very thing we want, we own it.  It's ours.  

After all, how can you give away anything if you don't already own it?

I know it sounds confusing and contradictory but think about it.  

Let's talk money, for an example, it's the easiest.

I believe this is the reason that the tithing principle works so well for people who want money and prosperity.  When they can start giving money away, whether it be 10%, (as in tithing), 5%, 1%, or even $1. a day, a week, or every month, it begins activating their vibration of having money.  They begin to realize, no matter how small their income or flow is, they have money coming in.  As the money comes in, they give, or flow back out, whatever percentage makes them feel prosperous.  As they regularly activate this feeling of prosperity, they suddenly find themselves receiving more.  

I call it "priming the pump".

In the early days before indoor plumbing, most people had a water pump that pumped up the water from their well. In order to get the flow going, they had to save a certain amount of water to put in the top of the pump in order to create a vacuum to draw more water up from the well. If you didn't put water in, you didn't get any out.


If you can give it away, you already have it. 
 
I believe the reason this works is because we are noticing that we own it, in some way, big or small, we can acknowledge that we already have it, it is ours to have or to give, and the more we acknowledge and be thankful for what we do have, that trusty law of attraction keeps giving us more of what we are focusing on and the feelings we are vibrating.

I believe this works in any area of life, health, wealth, happiness or love.  

Take stock of where you already own it, appreciate what you do have, be thankful for it, and then start sharing it, start giving some of that away.

I believe you will soon find, you have even more to give. It's yours! You own it!

Love and Luck,
Lucky Lady

Moving On Up

When we begin changing who we are and becoming what we want to be, it can look and feel kinda scary.

Here's one of my experiences.

I have been in business for over 34 years.  So you might say I have obviously been doing something right.

Well, about a year and a half ago, I really began studying the law of attraction and deliberate creation and I got really excited by all of the possibilities.

I decided I wanted to increase my sales and my profits, and attract more of my ideal customers by applying what I was learning to my business.

I decided to create my ideal customer desire statement based entirely on what I wanted.  Such as customers who love my shop, love my products, love my prices, have plenty of money to spend, etc.  I set new goal levels for my sales and profits. I decided how I wanted it to look, and how I wanted it to feel.  Customers that praised me and paid me.

As I began to affirm and visualize this new version of success, a strange thing happened.  

I started losing customers right and left.  Customers that had been doing business with me for years, customers that had come in regularly, suddenly stopped coming in.  It was scary.  I started to get worried and panic. My intentions were for more sales and profits, not less.  Even my Sweetie mentioned how strange it was that many of my regulars were no longer coming in.  I kept telling him I was in the process of attracting my ideal customers.

Even though I was worried I kept on affirming, visualizing, and reading my ideal business statement. I kept focusing on what I wanted.

The truth is, as I began vibrating my new ideal business, some of my customers were no longer a match to that success.  Yes, they were customers, and some were friends, but they were a vibrational match to the level of success that I had been.

Over the next few months, as sales began to increase, I realized I was seeing a lot of new faces. My Sweetie even asked, "where are all of these new people coming from?".

I can truly say that as I have changed, a lot of my customers have changed, and my business has changed.

As we shift and grow into whatever we want to be, it can look like it's all going wrong instead of right. If can look like we are losing customers, friends, or relationships.

Sometimes we have to let go of what is in order to receive something better.

If we can hold to the vision of what we desire, and how we want it to look and feel, the match to our new vibration will appear.

Love and Luck,
Lucky Lady
