After reason the other posts about the Oprah Show and the "Laws of Attraction" I think it would be good for all of us to start a positive thread so that we can start bringing positive thoughts and positive things into our lives. It all starts with our thinking.

I myself I am thinking of myself as being a lot slimmer and I am envisioning that for myself. Of course as a thin person, I would have to think and eat like a thin person. I also picturing the man of my dreams as I am living my life with him. I am thinking of myself coming down a staircase of beautiful white roses in a wedding dress. Anytime I am thinking negative things about my weight..I will think of myself coming down those staircases in my beautiful smaller white dress and the man of my dreams is waiting for me at the bottom of the staircase.

Now, lets all share what we want in our lives and we will see it happening to us. But you have to believe it and whenever you think of negative things...just say to youself "CANCEL THE THOUGHT". Train your mind.

2BHappy,

Good idea! As I read about this the first thing that popped up in my mind is the thing that sucks the energy out of me -- my day job. I've written about it here before. I will be at it for four-five more months, that's it, then I am free of it, and I will be going to school full time, will be partly relocating and will find other, more enjoyable ways of earning money.

I need my day job for now for $$ benefits, but it has been a drain, and it doesn not have to be, especially now, since I know For Certain that I am leaving soon. I can even start counting the days. I contribute to this being a problem because I don't keep up with the paperwork, and I have already made a committment, starting yesterday, to get caught up. So...

I envision that I walk through the remaining four-five months of my day job,working with the kids, easily and effortlessly, helping the kids bring out the best in themselves, keeping my energy up at a positive level at all times. I see myself All Completely Caught Up On My Paperwork in the next two weeks, and keeping myself caught up thereafter, and all the documents are written out correctly and in order. The number of kids I need to see is kept at no greater than it is now. And, I hand in my notice in early summer. Yay!!! And so it is.

And, by the way, if we all support each other on their visions, I think it will really help, add more positive energy to letting that all happen. So, my positive thoughts are with you 2BEHAPPY!

Thanks Hopeful...I looked at the website and it was pretty enlightening. How come everyone knew about this "Laws of Attraction" and I didnt? Now that I think about it..it does make sense. I intend to follow it and see where it leads me. Have to always think positive things...I keep repeating that to myself.

I first was at the secret website and it lead to that one.

I haven't gotten to see the movie yet.

But how should we start, I read on that site to write a list of everything you love, textures, smells, tastes everything until you get 100 I've been working on that.

Also gratitude, to be thankful for what we have and then more things will come for us to be thankful of.

Forgiveness.

Focusing and figuring out what exactly we want our lives to look like, health, relationships, financially ....and I forgot the other two lol.

Need a push here.

With my health and surgery... I know what I picture that as. Then you have to take action to get it.

Change our thought patterns and words.

okay need some help.

Great thought for a thread 2BHAPPY

Let's see, ... "Laws of Attraction"

Well I want to be in a wonderful, romantic relationship with a man of my dreams and prayers, standing on the top of a mountain in Machu Pichu, holding hands and laughing at the at an awesome full moon. We both are feeling blessed and joyful, in the moment, and fully alive.

And now I need to make it so.

Littlespirit,

Oh, your vision at Machu Pichu sent shivers through me. That's an awesome intention!!!!!

To ALl,

This site is just wonderful. I am going to check out that website and start listing those 100 things too.

I thnk it is important to remember every day what we really want in life and also say no to what we do not want. I try my best to take some time every morning to remember and think about what I can do, even if it just something little, to move ahead. Not 100% on this, but I am learning that even a few minutes makes a difference.

Today, even though it is Sunday, I have scheduled some paperwork to do for a few hours at home to help get me past what seems like a mountain of gunk to climb, but once I get started doing it, it will be okay and will also do this Monday, holiday, so I can have a better week at my day job.

Have a great day everyone! This stuff really works.

I am absolutely amazed at the "POSSIBILTIES" which may - no - change that...WILL be forthcoming.....by simply getting out of my own way.

Tapping "INTO THE CURRENT" rather than fighting against it - as I have my whole life.

I believe that I am now HOPEFUL......for the first time in my life........WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel - which has been there all along, I am figuring.............

Today, not even seeing the movie yet...one other friend on the web who is getting ready to have surgery..said she is hoping to atleast be 50 percent better. That hit me, if you aim for fifty percent thats what your gonna get. You have to aim for 100 percent.

Then my hubby and I were talking about our situation...and we agreed we got us here..we aren't victims we are in the financial situation we are in because of our actions.

We talked about working some for habitat for humanity, because well I have always wanted to do something to make a difference. But, in giving we receive..

Just in these few moments I am starting to see things differently.

truth,

Awesome: It sounds like you have had some kind of Awakening.

Yesterday, I committed to my two hours of paperwork and did it!!! I learned something too. I learned that it works best if I do this later in the day. It just flowed yesterday and I am almost looking forward to doing another two hours. Maybe I will look forward to this, that's better, because every two hours I do is two hours less to do.

By doing this later in the day, I have already accomplished many things I have wanted to do. Paperwork doesn't require big mental energy, its very repetitive. Can do it watching tv too to keep my interest. Sometimes these simple changes make all the difference.

Hmmm, I've Got A New Attitude.

Let's not let this thread get buried. We're off to a good start. I have done great with my work commitments. I even had an okay day at my dreaded job today. Some nice moments.

Anyone else have any dreams on fire right now?

I see myself thin, and successful.
In order to be thin I need to make better choices when it comes to what I put in my body. And to become successful I need to get out of my house, come out of my shell, shed my insecurities of being over weight and being judged.

Hey! I like that. Great idea on this thread. I never gave myself good advise before...

Well, I am having some second thoughts about all of this..........

I guess the thing that gets to me is that this sort of mindset and teaching - about the flow of positive energy and the abundance in the world etc....is all well and good - - -

Yet, I have a real problem when I am feeling angry. I know that anger is very, VERY helpful and powerful - yet, I have still yet found a book or mindframe that gives as much creedence to expressing anger as WELL as tapping into that universal, positive forces.

It just doesn't seem to me that I have read about a concept where BOTH play important roles.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

So I just watched the movie, and here were the main concepts:

How you think and feel is the energy you give off to attract those things. So if you have negative thoughts and feelings, you will attract negative things. Even if you are thinking about how you don't want these things in your life, you will attract the neagtive things.

Have an attitude of gratitude. Being thankful will help you think and feel things that you want to attract more of in your life.

Feel good. Listen to how you feel and do the things that make you feel good. Thinking positive thoughts is not enough. You have to actually feel them to be able to attract them into your life.

So, here are some exercises.

1) What are some things you think about that you don't want to happen in your life? However, this time describe them in positive ways of what you want. Example: I don't want to be fat --> I want to be thin and healthy

2) What are you thankful for in your life?

3) What makes you feel good?

My answers:

1) I want a family of my own that is healthy and loving.

2) I am thankful that I am financially secure.

3) Cuddling with my cats or helping other people.

I still think that the emotion of anger has to fit in here....

I am not talking about grudges or resentment - just fleeting anger.

There is a good book called The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner.

The basic premise is that anger is a signal that something is wrong. Anger is good because if we listen to this response, it can protect us. Good luck.

truth,

Last night I was totally angry. I was accepted into this university program, got a scholarship too, but there was a placement test for one of my classes and I didn't do well.

I felt so angry and it just confirmed that my current college is really on a low level and the instructor is too much of a people pleaser to those who don't want to work hard, and it brings the level of the class down. So, I went through my anger, even felt mad at myself for having such low self-esteem in the first place to be in this community college program (I wouldn't do it now, by the way, I am already mentally long gone from this class and attend as little as possible now.)

But, I found this anger was productive. I woke up this morning, did my morning quiet time of prayer, meditation, and some yoga, and I started thinking about how I am going to empower myself so I can learn all this information at a higher level, maybe get a tutor, so I can re-test and place in a higher-level class. I also decided its not my fault I did poorly on the test. I am one of the better students in the classes I took for this placement exam and I consistenly got A's, I thought I did my best. These ideas came to me through meditation. Then, haha, "out of the blue" I got an email this morning from this guy who is an exemplary student in this area (had not heard from him in two months), and I think I could hire him as a tutor or something.

Anger is OK as long as we don't hurt ourselves and hurt others with it. Its good to talk about anger when we feel. Believe me, I was really angry last night, but I had a social activity and I am an adult who has control over my feelings, and I processed this, talked a little about it with someone else, and now I have a new plan. I am glad I felt angry for awhile last night. It didn't disrupt my busy evening. My evening went fine, but it sure got me going to make some changes so I don't have to go to a new school and take the same stuff all over again because I only kind of know it. Better to start a learning program, get it learned, and start at a higher level this fall at the university. Horray for Anger. But, I have my no harm rules for anger too as listed above.

I also want to let you know something important about this process, and this applies to everyone. Often when we make statements of what we want and start going for it, chunks of crap we don't want start showing up. This does not mean this is not working. It just means that the universe is pointing out to us that there are things we need to say no to, to let go of, to say goodbye to, because they are still on our energy field and affecting our consciousnes.
