Envisioning a Better World for Women

Miracle of Ease

At the beginning of this year, I decided that I would make my intention ‘ease.’ It’s so easy to fall into other people’s ideas and fears of the world being ‘tough’ and life being ‘hard,’ and I knew that I had applied that to some areas of my life. Well, it’s May and I’m finally implementing it. Never too late, am I right?

I’ve just gone into the acting world, and everyone has an opinion on that. Usually, it’s something like this:

It takes x time to make it, and you have to jump through these hoops and meet ‘the right people’ and struggle and struggle and then maybe if you’re lucky you’ll make it but you’ll most likely give up and go back home.

Yeah, it’s wonderful. And as determined as I was not to fall into it, I did internalize it somewhat. Well, last week I realized what I had done, and decided to take it easy. Instead of ‘trying to manifest’ this by ‘working hard’ (even in a Law of Attraction sense), I decided to relax and believe that I had put in enough work, and I could just relax, enjoy the week with my boyfriend, eat what I wanted, etc. The results?

  1. Money from my dad (I’d been too scared to ask but then he just offered)
  2. Auditions for great, prominent roles (I killed em, by the way)
  3. A director who liked an audition from last week invited me to be cast in a play that has daily rehearsals (which I’d been desiring SO much- I really miss theatre) and great opportunities to network and perform for industry professionals.
  4. Writing inspiration for a series I’m working on.

On top of that, my relationship with my boyfriend just keeps getting better. He’s staying with me for the month and it’s been amazing having him here (I was anxious before). And my body is looking really good, too! My bf has been commenting on my abs and this week I noticed DAMN they do look good! In fact we’re both eating better- he’s losing weight too with no effort at all!

When it comes to ease, I like to look to Abraham Hicks for quotes. This one is perfect:

I’m continuing this approach for the foreseeable future. Sometimes when you push and push you can build up a wall that doesn’t need to be there. For a while, I need to take it easy. Visualize when I want to (like I do), eat when I want to and be kind to myself. That has really made the difference: being kind to myself.

What has worked for you? What have you decided is difficult that doesn’t have to be?

Love,

A.

What Do You See When You Look Back?

It’s a time of reflection for most of us. Especially those of us who live with intention, we are constantly reflecting on what we have manifested and what we want to manifest. But what do you see when you look back?

Celebrate+yourselfWe know how powerful our perspectives are. We can look back and see all the bad that happened, or we can see the good. I made a post on my personal blog of my “highlight reel” of 2017, and it was as if I was making a grand gratitude list. Limiting my list to 9 or 10 forced me to look through for all the good things that had happened that I’d even forgotten about! It was incredible to realize how much I had accomplished, and also how much I had manifested.

I think it’s important to have a positive attitude going into the new year, so when we set our goals and dreams, we’re on a frequency of receiving.

When you look back, do you see all the ups and downs or your highlight reel?

Wishing you a wonderful 2018

“I’m a lucky person”

Hello 👋🏽

I was recently sent a link to a wonderful audio podcast (I’d highly recommend it! – here) where the speaker mentioned how she has always believed she’s a lucky person. She knows that the universe continues to reflect that to her. I thought I’d give it a try. I affirmed this:

“I’m a lucky person. Good things always happen to me”

Whenever a really small (in my mind) thing happened, I used it as confirmation. I’d say “well, of course! I’m a lucky person. These kinds of things always happen to me” to solidify it in my mind. Several things have happened since then.

I got a free box of Maple Brown Sugar flavored oatmeal at a local grocery store. It was such a crazy accident how it happened, I even tried to put it back and a kid RAN to me with it and insisted on my taking it. I was so happy, because I’d looked at it while shopping but told myself to wait until next month for budget purposes. Walked out with it for free!

I’ve also been lucky with lifts. Most times I walk out of my building, I run into a friend who’s about to drive somewhere and offers to take me, or one of the security guards in golf carts who are too keen to give me a lift to the gate!

A few other things have happened to me that have confirmed my luck. It really is just something we decide to believe. I think we should all try it!

Do you believe you’re a lucky person? Share your thoughts or experiences in the comments!

Happy Friday 🍀

Something I Realized Last Night

Last night I did some dreamy visualization about my soulmate. My imagination ran wild with the amazing things we’d do for each other and how happy we’d be, when a thought along the lines of “too good to be true” popped up.

Why?

I corrected myself, because I know I deserve even better than the love I can imagine. It’s only because we tell ourselves about how hard relationships are, when they don’t have to be. It’s hard to imagine life being an upward spiral- but there is literally no limit to how much love I can give and receive. I deserve it, after all! And so do you.

Happy Friday to you all ❤️

How To Change Limiting Beliefs Through Doubt – http://wp.me/p4OhpB-2SG

Privilege through an LOA Lens

But what is privilege, then, but a lack of limitation? It’s simply not putting an “I can’t because” in front of one’s identity. From a human, energetic, universal perspective, what is the difference between a straight white man and anyone else? He has never been taught that his identity will stop him from getting anything. Consciously or subconsciously (or subliminally via the media), the messages he’s received have told him he is a standard, normal human being whose limitations are purely human. Nothing else. The rest of the world has been told somehow along the way that their identity will hinder/prevent certain things, and as long as those messages are accepted, they continue to shape our world in a way we don’t like.

Well, that’s my opinion. 

Thank you Stuart Goldsmith!

I’m sure many of you who’ve read LOA or positive thinking books have encountered the fact that the reader is always referred to as “he.” Despite the fact that the authors are telling us to create our own worlds and not limit ourselves, they exclude women from being successful in terms of business/careers. It has bugged me a bit, but I have to make excuses like “well, they were living in a different time” or “they didn’t realize they were doing that.” While that may be true, it is a relief to see that one [male!] author addressed this in a book.

Stuart Goldsmith, author of The Midas Method, writes:

Here are two fairly typical examples: JOHN: “I’m useless at maths!” DAD: “Nonsense son, you’ll just have to try harder.”

Compare this with: MARY: “I’m useless at maths.” DAD: “Never mind sweetie, you can’t have a pretty face AND be clever at everything can you?”

Going right back to the beginning of this book, do you remember that I told you how I read every ‘Positive Thinking’ book that I could get hold of, then synthesised my own method? Well one thing that really struck me after about the fifth book, was that women were totally excluded from these books. In every single book, the reader was always referred to as “he” NEVER “she” and the books were all crawling with nice little sexist examples using a boss, (always a man), and a secretary, (always a woman), as the main characters.

Why do I make this point? Because ‘Positive Thinking’ books are rarely aimed at women. Women are NOT encouraged by our society to raise their level of I-CAN belief. In fact it is definitely frowned upon if a woman appears too capable or appears to believe in herself (unless that belief is confined to ‘safe’ subjects like cooking or bringing up babies). Most women who do possess a high level of I-CAN have long ago learnt the trick of playing it down – especially in front of male associates.

It is not my intention to explore the subject of sexism at length in this book. I am not qualified to do so, and it has been well covered by other authors. I only wanted to use this as an example of how a lifetime of training in lowering a person’s I-CAN belief, can result in their being confined under a very low ceiling. I said earlier that most people are confined under a three foot ceiling; if you’re a woman reading this then subtract one foot!

It’s awesome that he recognized that and addressed it so well. It’s really important to include women in talks of ambition, success and riches without limiting them to outdated social rules.

 

It is my hope to one day inspire women with books, quotes or other pieces of writing that allow them to feel as valued, as capable, and as worthy of success as they are meant to be. We have always been equal, and we’re waking up from the collective delusion that suggested otherwise.

I’m really grateful to him for addressing it.

Just started a tumblr today, and this came up!!!! I feel like the Universe is like “YAAAAAS GIRL YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK HERE’S A REMINDER”

Love it
