The More You Give the More You Get!

I posted this recently on Not In India 2012 but felt the message important enough to repost here.  Enjoy! 🙂

The Casino

The Casino

I have written in the past, both on this blog and on my Mindfulness Journal, about Manifesting Dreams and Creating a New Reality. Much of what we talk about, and read about these days deals with the Laws of Attraction and attracting what we want into our lives. There are some very basic techniques about how to go about doing this. You can find innumerable posts, articles, videos, books, lectures, workshops etc. regarding this whole “business”.

But one thing which is very often overlooked, or not given enough attention, is the simple idea that “like attracts like” – meaning, if you live in a mode of want, if you worry about what you don’t have, and worry about what you do have but might not have tomorrow….if you count your pennies because you are afraid you may not have enough tomorrow, if you live “frugally” to insure your having enough “when”….then you are actually defeating the purpose. The more you live in fear of not having, the more you save for a rainy day, the more you count each penny you spend, the more you are “careful” with what you have, the more you will attract more of the same into your life. You will always be afraid and probably for the reason that you don’t have enough, you will never have enough for a rainy day, you will continue counting pennies because you will never have more than pennies to count, and you will never have “more”, rather you will continue to have ‘less”.

The story below is an example of how giving freely, even if you don’t have “enough”, of giving lovingly and without fear of “not having” what you need if you’ve given to someone else, of sharing what you have with a full heart, attracts even more into your life. People who live like this, even if it seems as if they have very little, will ALWAYS have what they need, whenever they need it. I can tell you this from personal experience as well. Once I got out of the “fear” mode and moved into the “free” mode, once I began giving lovingly, to others and myself, whenever I felt like it or needed to, I began experiencing all kinds of unexpected surprises of money finding its way into my life, free vacations coming my way, strange “coincidences” and of course no longer having to worry that I don’t have, or will not have, enough.

I recently posted the following on my Facebook page:

On my way to the train station and in the blink of an eye my travel plans have changed. As always, God and the Universe are looking out for me, and I have been sent an Amtrak ticket by an angel named M. so that I don’t have to travel by local commuter train where I would save $60 or more but would have to change trains, (I am carrying all my luggage) ,wait for trains and spend more than 2 hours riding what is less than a 1 hour actual trip. I am truly blessed! 😀

The angel was my cousin who I was going to visit and she lovingly paid for my Amtrak ticket, round trip, and did so with joy and happiness. Two days ago, she took me “just for fun” to a casino near her home. I just played out the $5 I was given as an incentive by the casino, and when I finished, she took over the machine I was playing, After a couple of minutes of play, SHE WON $1000!!!!. And that is how it works!

Reality and Dealing with Negative Feelings

Anger, frustration, fear, worry – they do come – we are only human.  The question is what to do with these feelings when they arise.  This is a question I was confronted with just a couple of days ago, when I found myself swamped in them after spending several frustrating hours dealing with insurance companies regarding a claim following someone running into my car from behind while my daughter was driving.  This happened a couple of months ago , and until now the money has not been paid to me to cover the repairs.

I found myself in an extremely difficult place  – with feelings that I hadn’t experienced for a long time – and was at a loss about what to do regarding my reaction to the situation. Remember, we are always responsible for the way we feel and so these feelings of anger, frustration, fear and worry were not what was upsetting me, but the fact that I allowed myself to react in a way which allowed these feelings to arise in the first place.

So …what to do?

Well, it took me awhile, but I realized that first of all, the feelings must be validated, allowed to exist, and not buried.  Allow them their own freedom to “be” – find out where they are coming from and then move past them back to the balanced place.  If doing this involves a day or two of sleeping a lot, or playing computer games, of not meditating and doing yoga, don’t beat myself up about it.  Allow myself the luxury of succumbing once in awhile.  The downs only make the highs easier to relish, appreciate and be grateful for!

The relapses into bad times have a place in our lives and as such, are just as much a blessing as the so-called “good” stuff.  In the end, EVERYTHING is good, and for our own Higher Good.

And, once again,  I give thanks to God and the loving Universe for my many blessings, even when it takes me awhile to become aware of them.

It has been quite some time since I’ve been here, and I will not try right now to bring this blog up to date with the events of the past 6 months or so…that I will do my best to accomplish over the next few weeks.
But yesterday, during my morning meditation, I was given the following guidance/message: “Start reading your blog randomly, on a daily basis, and begin posting to Facebook”!. Don’t quite understand the Facebook part but this evening I DID open my blog and begin to choose random posts.
The second one I chose was this:

Soul Mate and Tarot

After reading this post, I remembered a very recent reading I did for myself, just about 2 weeks ago, (on May 12th to be precise) which once again found me dealing with the issue of finding my soul mate. I thought it would be interesting to share it here as it is so similar to the previous one dealing with the same issue, from December 19, 2009. I continue to put my efforts into bringing this vision into reality, but there are times when my patience fail me and I need further support and encouragement. Which is precisely what happened here….

You can see the cards I chose 5 months ago by going to the link above. And here, with their message, are the cards I chose 2 weeks ago!. I was urged to check the cards during my morning meditation, right after realizing that May 12th is my father’s birthday (he passed away 3 1/2 years ago, but is still with me). I wished him a happy birthday and in reply he said to me: “It is now YOUR turn! – MAKE IT WORK!” (yes, he was shouting a little)…not quite understanding what he was referring to, I then followed the guidance I was given and opened the cards. Here they are:
LAXSHMI- BRIGHT FUTURE: Stop worrying-everything is going to be fine
MOTHER MARY – EXPECT A MIRACLE: Have Faith that your prayers have been heard and are being answered
ABUNDANTIA-PROSPERITY: The Universe is pouring its abundance out to you – be open to receiving

ISABELLA: Yes, the timing is right for this new venture – a happy outcome follows your positive expectations
ARCHANGEL URIEL: Your emotions are healing which enables you to open to greater love
CARESSA: You are at the end of a cycle in your life. Happiness awaits you now

And an extra card which fell out of the deck by itself:
ISAIAH: It is a good time to give birth to new ideas and situations in your life – I am watching over you, guiding you and protecting you during these changes.

Some of you may understand the cards as referring to a new business adventure, a new course of study, moving to a new home, finding a new job etc., but for me, this is just further affirmation that my moving forward in every way possible towards coming together with my soul mate, is precisely what I should be doing at this point in time.

Love light and JOY to all

Back to Reality and Dealing with Negative Feelings

Anger, frustration, fear, worry – they do come – we are only human. The question is what to do with these feelings when they arise. This is a question I was confronted with just a couple of days ago, just one month after coming home from India. After many months of being relatively free of negative feelings, I found myself swamped in them after spending several frustrating hours dealing with insurance companies regarding a claim following someone running into my car from behind while my daughter was driving. This happened a couple of months ago while I was in India, and until now the money has not been paid to me to cover the repairs. I found myself in an extremely difficult place – with feelings that I hadn’t experienced for a long time – and was at a loss about what to do regarding my reaction to the situation. Remember, we are always responsible for the way we feel and so these feelings of anger, frustration, fear and worry were not what was upsetting me, but the fact that I allowed myself to react in a way which allowed these feelings to arise in the first place.

So again…what to do? Well, it took me awhile, but I realized that first of all, the feelings must be validated, allowed to BE, and not buried. Allow them their own freedom to exist – find out where they are coming from and then move past them back to the balanced place. If doing this involves a day or two of sleeping a lot, or playing computer games, of not meditating and doing yoga, don’t beat myself up about it. Allow myself the luxury of succumbing once in awhile. The downs only make the highs easier relish, appreciate and be grateful for!

The relapses into bad times have a place in our lives and as such, are just as much a blessing as the so-called “good” stuff. In the end, EVERYTHING is good, and FOR our own Higher Good. So once again I give thanks to God and the loving Universe for my many blessings, even when it takes me awhile to become aware of them.

Living in India 2009– How a Dream Becomes a Reality

So many people have asked me how I have managed to arrange my life so that I can spend 6 months a year in India, that I’ve decided to write about it as there hopefully are lessons for others to learn from this as well.

I have done some thinking about the whole concept of turning dreams into reality. It is a fairly simple concept actually, but seeing it truly work is the amazing part. When we have a focused intention and can visualize it, and then release it completely to God and the Universe, our new reality begins to be created for us. The catch here is that we must TOTALLY release it, in complete Faith, knowing that it will be taken care of. The “how’s” are well beyond our human capabilities to imagine.

If we continue to “second-guess” the wisdom of the Universe, or mix fear into the equation, we sabotage the final outcome.

Asking each day for the best possible outcome to our prayers, our dreams, for our Higher Good and the Higher Good of all who come in contact with us, on all levels – asking for openness to accept and embrace ALL that comes our way in COMPLETE FREEDOM FROM FEAR – asking for the wisdom to “hear” all the messages we receive – is all we need to do to insure the successful manifestation of our dreams into reality.

In 2001, at the age of 54, when I quit my high paying job in hi-tech (more…)

November 9, 2008 – Further Insights and Final Cleansing Of Past Issues

Sun Setting on the Past

Sun Setting on the Past

The process continues…(Please read the previous post if you have not already done so to understand this one)…it is now the next day and have had many more insights – some I will keep for my private journals, but will share enough to allow others to gain insights from this as well.

This morning came a full disclosure to myself. What was revealed to me after 23 years of being completely unaware of these feelings and issues! Really full understanding of what I haven’t admitted to myself all these years. I would have wanted more than anything else to have stayed married – but I was not given the opportunity or option. Instead of working WITH me to help me at the time I most needed it, he did everything possible to push me further and further away. The person I had taken care of so lovingly for over 20 years, who I had never asked anything of – attuning myself to his needs in all things – had deserted me in my time of deepest need. Cruelly pushing me away in every way possible when he should have been protecting and cherishing me – helping me to move through my Dark Night. While I desperately clung to hope as a drowning victim does to a life raft, he pulled this from my grip as well, leaving me to go under along – slowly sinking. I was forced to rip apart a family which would never fully recover the wounds inflicted on it – as a unit and as individuals.

I am sure I could have gotten to the same place in my life that I am today WITHOUT having to break up my home, if he had only been willing and able to work along with me for a few years until I found my path. I COULD have done it differently if I had been given the opportunity. And I now know that this frustration, so long repressed was what caused this anger to well up in me after being held back by illusion for so many years. . This realization is a cause for profound sadness and grief– but I will move forward. What’s done is done and there is a reason for this as well. That reason is still to be discovered! I will do my best to be patient but I joyfully look forward to finding out what it is!

It is important to understand that I am not seeking to “place blame”, for there is no place for that in our lives. Just coming to terms with these hidden issues, and releasing them, is all that is necessary. And I have done that completely…feeling light and at peace with myself and everyone else connected with these issues. It is a true blessing!

There will be one more post with a truly lovely dream which reflects this final cleansing on all levels, but will leave that for a separate post.

Love
Jane
