September 2008


I work at home in a ground floor office. Last week it was warm and I had all the doors open. I was working at my desk, looked up to my left when I heard a rustle, and there was a horse walking right into my office- no- not a horse. a dog, a VERY big dog, and he came right up to me and put his head in my lap……..before I could register what was happening, ANOTHER horse, no dog, followed him right over to me.

Black giant dog with head in lap drooled over me, I started laughing, stood up, and reached into my memory banks that BIG DOGS ARE GENTLE…and quietly told them to follow me outside. Dog #2 decided that the stairs leading to my comfy couches in the living room was a much better option- I had to coax him down the stairs, and led them both outside into my front yard.

I stood there wondering what to do. Were they lost, and who the heck owned them? My biggest fear at that point was that they would “poop” in my yard- I did NOT want to have to clean that up!

Well, they wandered off, and I called our Dog Catcher who never showed up. That was that.

Friday, I looked outside, and there was my friend again- Dog #1. I went outside, because now I was concerned that he was really lost and scared- I grabbed my portable phone with the Dog Catcher’s phone number. He came up to me wagging his giant tail, I sat on my bench on the porch, he settled down making sure his backside was on my foot, and we meditated together…….he eventually wandered off before DC came. When she did arrive, I had seen him go up my street, she went up and found out that my new neighbours who are currently just coming over the renovate the cabin, were their owners and would now keep them nearby.

I still laugh when I think of their strolling into my office- here is a picture of another person’s close encounter! And when I attract, I attract BIG these days!!!

I was reading some Abraham material yesterday, and felt inspired to offer this 30 day plan. I actually started doing this early last week, and it has been lovely, sweet, and energizing.

From Abraham: “Within 30 days of mild effort, you can go from being one of the most resistant people on the planet to one of the least resistant people on the planet- and then, those who are watching you will be amazed by the number of manifestations that begin to occur in your physical experience.”

And here is the affirmation from Abraham as well:

” I’m going to begin my day by meditating and bringing myself into alignment with my Source Energy. And as I move through the day, I am going to look for opportunities to appreciate, so that all day long I’ll bring myself back into Source Energy. If there is an opportunity to praise, I’m going to praise; if there is an opportunity to criticize, I’m going to keep my mouth shut and try to meditate. If I feel like criticizing, I’ll say, ‘ Here kitty, kitty,’ and I’ll pet my cat until that feeling goes away.”

There it is!

Care to join me? Fifteen minutes in the morning before starting our day, and then another meditation around 4 pm or whatever works for you- even just once a day is sufficient. How to do it? Just find a comfortable chair to sit in, and start to breathe- in and out, in and out- when you catch yourself thinking about stuff, just bring your thoughts back to your breathing. As time goes on, you will start to feel a lightness, a clarity, and you will just be in a timeless place, breathing and allowing.

When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well-being. When you are yelling at somebody, you’re not. When you’re feeling insecure, you’re not. When you’re frustrated, you’re not-Abraham

What a lovely day…fall is well upon us here in the Salish Sea. I can now really feel Well-being flow through me when I am appreciating, and the gloom that descends upon me when I am not.

Entering fifteen minutes of quiet meditation in the morning has been a way of allowing……playing piano….writing in my journal about all the things that I do appreciate is another. Life flows effortlessly and joyously along when I am allowing.

Learning that my feelings are good, valid and simply indicators has been liberating- when I feel “bad”, I now know to determine what it is that I am focusing on that I do not want, and then to determine what it is that I do want. Oh so simple…….and oh so powerful.

It was only minutes before they were passing over the crinkled blue of the Bristol Channel, and almost at once Combe Island lay beneath them, as unexpectedly as if it had risen from the waves, multicoloured and as sharply defined as a coloured photograph, its silver granite cliffs towering from the white boiling of foam. Dalgliesh reflected that it was impossible to view an offshore island from the air without a quickening of spirit. Bathed in autumnal sunshine there stretched a sea-estranged other world, deceptively calm but rekindling boyhood memories of fictional mystery, excitement and danger. Every island to a child is a treasure island. Even to an adult mind Combe, like every small island, sent out a paradoxical message: the contrast between its calm isolation and the latent power of the sea, which both protected and threatened its self-contained alluring peace.

-from “The Lighthouse” by P.D. James

I moved to my Island in the Salish Sea sixteen years ago, and when I read this last week I understood why….

Last night I went to a potluck dinner; we have been getting together for the last 3 years or so, and it is a highlight of my month seeing my friends and their kids.  There were the “regulars” plus a few people who have not been in a long time.

While I was eating, I looked around a decided to sit down on a chair to eat- the chair beside me was empty. I decided to try something new: I said to myself ” I want the person who chooses the chair to do so because they want to learn about Law of Attraction.” And so I just sat there by myself and enjoyed eating, while watching all the activity around me.

After a few minutes, a young woman, one of the not- so -regular attendants, sat down beside me and said to me ” Are you still doing a lot of walking- because I see you all the time walking and you look fantastic. You are simply glowing- what are you doing????”  Well, talk about a segue and away we went!!!!

It turns out, she is a single mom with a lovely 5 year old daughter, and is hitting a rough patch in her life- I asked her if she had heard of the Teachings of Abraham. She had not, and then I talked about the movie “The Secret” which she had heard of and explained that its origin was a filming of an Abraham-Hicks seminar. We talked a bit more about the principles of LOA, and she was getting more and more excited, as was I.

And where we left the conversation is that she is coming over to borrow some books and CDs……and there you have it….the beginning of the Wisdom School is happening wherever I go.

I am still amazed at the simplicity and  beauty of understanding this most basic and fundamental Law of the Universe.

When did I know that Law of Attraction was real, that I had complete control over my life and my emotions? That even though I am located in this reality, the larger part of me is connected to Source, and I can always access that wisdom within me?

Could it be when my brother- in -law offered us a trip to Mexico within two weeks of my simply thinking how nice it would be to go somewhere warm over the winter school break? And then could it have been when, on the first day of the glorious vacation, he gave me my first Abraham- Hicks book to read?

So there I was, lime margarita in one hand, lounging in my oceanfront lounge chair on the Sea of Cortez, reading about the Law of Attraction. And I had never bothered to see the movie “The Secret”!!

I can tell you- the hairs on my neck started to stand on end as I read more and more of the book, eventually digging up a highlighter, and getting more and more excited as I read.  This was giving me a deep understanding of what I had experienced and wondered about all my life: How do you explain co-incidences that change your life? What about “prophetic” dreams and “chance” happenings?

I started on that vacation a journey over the last nine months that saw me start this blog, purchase all the Abraham-Hicks books there are, join the bi-monthly CD program, and become an active participant on a forum (www.theabeforum.com) that discusses these concepts: the wisdom contained in these teachings is transforming my life, and the next while I will write about them on my blog.  The aspiration of my soul has called in, through the law of attraction, this infinite wisdom.

A Wisdom School is where we come together and remember.

Please join me.

Abraham teaches us again and again that the most powerful, and therefore the most important Universal Law, is the Law of Attraction stated thus:

That which is like unto itself is drawn.


Abraham then goes on to teach us that our emotions will tell us whether we are attracting that which we DO want or that which we DO NOT want.

There are in fact only two emotions: good and bad.

So, if you are feeling bad, then you are attracting ( by thinking and focusing)on what you do not want.

And if you feel good, then you are attracting that which you do want.

And that is why Abraham teaches that nothing is as important than that you FEEL GOOD…because that indicates that you are in the process of attracting that which you want.

And if you truly understand Law of Attraction, you can then relax into your good feeling feelings and know, without a doubt, that what you want is on its way…….without a doubt!
