How to Find Happiness? Let Bootsie the Cat Inspire You!

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

It was less than a year ago, May 2008 when it happened. Seeing is believing, they say. So, I’ll let you see how to find happiness through my storytelling.

My husband, Brian, and I were in Canandaigua, New York visiting his relatives. One evening six of us were sitting in the living room of Peter and Josephine having a grand time laughing and enjoying ourselves.

I noticed that their cat, Bootsie, a Maine coon cat, was prominently positioned by the dining room table. I’d say he was about 15-20 feet away from where I sat. And what was most interesting was that he sat clearly visible to us with his back towards us.

What did that mean?
That was definitely cat body language, wouldn’t you agree?

Bootsie could have gone into another room for peace and quiet, if he so desired.

But no!…

Bootsie seated himself where all of us could see his back and not his face!

So, anyway, as I said, we were enjoying ourselves. Then Mike and Gloria and Peter and Josephine wanted to hear me sing some of the songs I had written…..and I happily obliged.

When I started singing the song I had just written a week or two earlier, guess what happened next….

Overcoming Fear – Is That A Secret of The Laws of Attraction?

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

The Laws of Attraction were in action for me today. I had decided to write a post about overcoming fear and had an idea in mind about what to write.

Then when I checked my email I found an email from Dr. Joe Vitale. I noticed it last night with its subject line announcing a free teleseminar on how to attract money. Since it was late last night when I saw it, I decided to wait until this morning to open it.

That was a wise decision! The teleseminar was today. I listened intently and took many notes as Dr. Vitale was interviewed by Annie Jennings, head of her own highly successful PR firm, Annie Jennings PR.

Since I enjoy and learn from hearing Dr. Vitale’s interviews of notable people and the insightful questions he asks, I was very attracted to this teleseminar.

I previously heard him quote someone as saying:

“ I’m totally satisfied. I just want more.”

Don’t you want more?

Because I have big dreams of helping lots of children as well as adults, the subject of attracting money was very attractive to me.

In today’s interview Dr. Vitale talked about how your conscious mind wants money while your unconscious mind puts up a psychological barrier. You both want and fear money at the same time.

So there he was talking about fear! Remember that I said I had planned to write today about overcoming fear?

He mentioned fear again when he was talking about…

How Can Positive Affirmations Help You?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

When I moved from Texas to New York many years ago, one of the things I noticed about people there was how they responded to the question “How are you?”

The typical response in New York was “Not bad”.

In Texas I was accustomed to getting the response “Fine.”

What strikes you most about the difference in those responses?

Did you notice that in the first example, the focus is on negative words, and in the second example, the response is a positive word?

Do you know what Mother Teresa said regarding an invitation to an anti-war demonstration?

She said she would not attend an anti-war demonstration, but that if you invited her to a peace rally, she would go.

So, what does that illustrate?

It shows that Mother Teresa focused on the positive. She would not go to an event that was against something negative, but she would go to an event for something positive.

Her answer is in line with the Laws of Attraction… What you think or talk about comes to you. You attract what you focus on.

How can you apply that to yourself?

Why not create some positive affirmations to answer the questions that follow?

I wrote some example answers to give you a head start, but you should give an answer that most speaks from your heart’s desire. What do you want to attract? Beginning your affirmations with “I am” is very powerful.

What Does A Woodpecker Have to Do With The Laws of Attraction?

Last month while walking in the park along the bayou near our home, my husband and I were stopped by the sound of loud pecking….loud and very persistent pecking.

So we looked around and spotted a woodpecker on a small bare branch of a tree. Very busy was this little bird, pecking away.

What struck me as odd was that the branch he was pecking on was quite small.

I felt as if he was there to make sure we saw him on that tree barren of leaves in February.

So when I got home, I pulled out my book, Animal Spirit Guides – An Easy-to-Use Handbook for Identifying and Understanding Your Power Animals and Animal Spirit Helpers by Steven D. Farmer, Ph.D.

I let the pages flutter to the Woodpecker page where I read:

“If Woodpecker shows it up, it means:

You’re entering into a time of abundance and plenty.”

Among the possible 5 meanings for woodpecker showing up, I instinctively knew that was the one for me. I know that I am attracting abundance now that I am on the path intended for me.

What about you?

Are you on your intended path?

Are you taking actions to allow the laws of attraction to work for you?

Or are you just accepting what comes, resisting change?

Isn’t it time for you to get out of your comfort zone?  To challenge yourself?

Why not let yourself be inspired by these lyrics from my song, ‘Uplifted and Inspired’?
