You may notice that a lot of my examples happen to be around being a new mom lately. This is my world right now, and I am applying the universal laws to this area of my life as well. Every situation that you have in your life you can apply the universal laws and see quick results. No exceptions.
When Alex was first born everyone wanted to give me “advice” on how to handle a baby. Where I appreciated that, everyone’s “advice” contradicted each other. I would have one person tell me, “Never give a baby water.” And then the next person would say, “You should give him some water.” Then I would have someone tell me, “Don’t give the baby a bottle, because he will get nipple confusion.” And someone else would tell me, “You should give the baby the bottle so that you can have a little bit of independence.” Or “Don’t give the baby a pacifier.” And then I would hear “Give the baby a pacifier, it will soothe him.”
I WAS SO FRUSTRATED!
I finally got so frustrated that I didn’t want to listen to anyone. Frederic and I agreed that we are the parents and we will do what we think is right for our baby. That instantly changed the whole parenting experience for the both of us.
When we listened to our baby and connected with our own inner guidance and wisdom of what we should do to soothe Alex, everything was easy and they were the right actions to take.
There are so many opinions of what is right and wrong. There are so many people that want to tell you how to do something. The only way you will know if something is right for you is to listen to your own inner guidance. How do you know you are in alignment with your own inner guidance? You feel good.
As Dr. Wayne Dyer has said (and I paraphrase) “To feel good is to feel God. Good and God are interchangeable.”
When you are feeling good about a decision, that is the right decision for you. When you feel good about an action to take, that is the right action for you.
We need to get back to trusting ourselves, and the connection that we have with our inner being. How do we build trust? We practice. Like with anything the more you do something, the more confidence you have in your ability. The more you practice listening to your intuition the better you will be at recognizing it and the more you will trust it.
How do you get in touch with that inner guidance? There are many ways. I find that meditation helps me connect instantaneously. Just find a space of silence and intend to connect will do wonders.
Coaching with a Law of Attraction coach will help remind you of your greatness and this connection. You can do this for free with one of the QSCA coaches (See the upcoming events section to sign up). I train my coaches to NEVER give advice. Each person has within them the ability to find their own answers because of this inner guidance. They are trained to help you connect with yours.
Spend some time in nature. Nature has a very healing effect on the mind, body and spirit. Just watching the leaves blow in the wind, or waves crashing on a beach can be a spiritual experience.
Also, when you hear a voice inside your own mind give you a direction to go in, listen to it. For example, if you hear that inner voice tell you to charge your cell phone, charge it. If it tells you to take a different road home, take it. There have been so many times when I heard this voice and didn’t do what it said and I regretted it later. Once it told me to charge my phone and I didn’t listen, later that day I received an important phone call and I did not have enough batteries. The call cut off and I lost out on an opportunity. I started to listen and each and every time I hear that voice (no matter how strange it may sound) I do what it says. It always works out in my favor. That is how you build trust.
What is trust? Trust is opening your heart, believing in yourself and in the abundance of the universe. It is knowing that the universe is loving, friendly, and supports your higher good. Trust is knowing that you are part of the process of creating, and believing in your ability to draw to you want to want.
What does trust mean? To Rely Upon Spirit Totally
Go within and connect with your Infinite Wisdom. Ask your inner guidance for direction in your life. Follow that guidance as long as it feels good to you. Believe that everything will work out the way you want it to. What you believe will ultimately turn into your reality. If you believe that the universe is always supporting you then that is what you will experience. If however, you believe that the world is against you, you will also experience that.
Only you and your inner guidance know what is right for you. When you are in alignment with this inner guidance you are in a pure positive state. By the Law of Attraction positive life experiences will then be reflected back to you.
A Friend of mine sent this to me over email and I thought it was funny and appropriate for this newsletter.
Subject: Trip to Rome
Here is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade. Remember this story the next time someone who knows nothing (and cares less) tries to make your life miserable…
A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded: “Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”
“We’re taking Continental,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”
“Continental?” exclaimed the hairdresser.” That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”
“We’ll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome’s Tiber River called Teste.”
“Don’t go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks its gonna be something special and exclusive, but it’s really a dump.”
“We’re going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope.”
“That’s rich,” laughed the hairdresser. You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it.”
A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.
“It was wonderful,” explained the woman, “not only were we on time in one of Continental’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot.
And the hotel was great! They’d just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it’s a jewel, the finest hotel in the city.
They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner’s suite at no extra charge!”
“Well,” muttered the hairdresser, “that’s all well and good, but I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”
“Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me.”
“Oh, really! What’d he say?”
He said: “Who messed up your hair?”
