Let the Good Bugs Bite Tonight!

Let the Good Bugs bite tonight mom–this is how my daughter says goodnight.  I generally try to look on the bright side of things (Law of Attraction and all=-) and I don’t want to squash her creativity, but finally a few nights ago I said, “Honey, um….there really are no good bugs that bite people, like that just normally is not a good thing…so what are you talking about!?”

She said mom well these are the GOOD bugs and they bite you at night if you welcome them in. They fill you with love and trust and respect and good feelings and lightness, and then they leave after doing their duty. You have to welcome them in though, so let the good bugs bite tonight!

I went to bed thinking wow,,,,that I have never heard of, but what a beautiful idea…..I love my daughter more than life itself and this is a picture of her last weekend after running the 5K for “Make a Wish” foundation. She lets the good bugs bite every night I can tell you……

I dare me—you—US!? Happy New Year!=-)

I read a wonderful little memoir called “I Dare Me!” by Lu Ann Cahn about how she did something new every day for a year.  It was a fun little read, and it inspired me to think about getting out there and doing, being, choosing differently.

I am committed to one new thing a week which is only 52 “new things” in a year which felt VERY doable to me, almost easy!  Some simple changes from my first week made a difference fIMG_3366or me….I enjoyed a ton of new classes at a new workout center for the week–loved my new yoga, spinning and strength teachers…energizing!

I “let” my daughter go downhill skiing for the first time and she just conquered those hills with her usual grace and grit, and I said some extra prayers that day=-)  She’s my inspiration every day bc she does something new pretty much every day and her life reflects that passion and “joie de vivre”.

The list goes on, nothing life changing per se, but moment changing perhaps which leads to life changing….Here’s to a wonderful 2015!

Laverty’s Life Link:  Think about small, medium even large things you could choose differently each day and see how it feels…feel free to share your experiences with others and pass the inspiration forward=-)  Love, Tracy and truly–happy, peaceful new year to you…..

A TV, a Hope and a Prayer….Only God knows how it happened

I will be revealing a bit about myself in this blog, and it is too funny and amazing not to share….So we have a TV from 1992–we don’t watch much TV, so it is fine for the occasional DVD movie etc.  I do a thing called Freecycle where you can give and receive things for free (it is AMAZING by the way!!!! I highly recommend the yahoo group=-).  A nice lady offered a 2002 Toshiba TV, and she clearly said it is too big for women to carry, and I would need 2 men to c100_5380arry it.  I

don’t have 2 men in my life that I would ask to move this TV, so something in my intuition said, just go for it with your daughter and see what happens. She was game as she wanted to get the TV out of her apartment (note it is 150 pounds and about 3.5 feet by 3.5 feet, so just a HUGE HEAVY BOX as you can see in the pictures!!)

We trekked over tonight, and I felt like somehow it was all meant to be, so I was kind of excited about the adventure. Firstly, the nice lady was an angel to allow us to try this and to help….then the nice maintenance man saw us with the TV and offered help into the car….and then it DIDN’T FIT IN THE BACK OF MY FOUR DOOR SEDAN. Honestly, I was about to give up at that point, but now the nice lady had her TV outside, and I am sure she didn’t want us to drag it back up again!!!! So they mentioned I should get a cab…but it didn’t fit into any normal and even one SUV cab we found (!!!???@#$%@#%$#$%).  So we called a big SUV cab and this VERY NICE man agreed to haul the TV alone while my daughter and I drove behind him to get back to my loft….

Angel #?? came over to help the cab driver lift it into the back of the SUV, and we were off….My daughter and I were able to use the dolly (that I got from a friend angel) and the story goes on…just angels popping up at just the right times….the TV is so huge once we got it home I was almost like, I am not sure if we can handle this in our loft but my daughter said oh yes….oh yes….we are keeping it=-)  So I hooked it up with the lovely Cable people on the phone, and it has really a nice picture!!!!!

What is my point…sometimes there are angels who come out of the woodwork and it is fun to take on adventures like this–if only to experience the goodness and kindness of humans….no words to express how nice all these people were….tears were shed and hugs were shared…..

Laverty Life Links: When have you climbed a big mountain and have literally felt like you were carried by angels throughout the process?  How was your life transformed as a result?

PS: Clearly we could afford a new flat screen TV with home delivery…but that wouldn’t be any fun, would it?! Well…. maybe the next time that would be a little fun=-)100_5383

Top 10 Ways to Destroy your Life using the Law of Repulsion=-)

Think about your past constantly.

Obsess about how you could have done things differently.

Tip of Glacier

Spend all day dreaming about your future.

Criticize and complain about your life.

Judge everyone.

Wish you could have someone else’s life.

 Believe that everything is someone else’s fault. Think you can get a new life by doing the same thing you have always done.

Blame your parents for your current life.

Wallow in self-pity for what God (or whomever) has done to you.

Laverty Life Links: Consider if you knowingly or unknowingly do any of these items which are truly self-abandoning and simply become aware of it when you do..and notice how you feel.

PS It was kind of funny bc i was looking at all of my pictures and images on file, and I don’t have anything to add to this blog…and I didn’t really want to add a picture to represent this bc often pictures are more viscerally impactful than words, so I wouldn’t want to add that to your consciousness nor mine!!!!  The iceberg represents many things to me and one of them is how something can appear small and almost innocuous on the surface, but deep down it is large and ominous…and that is how I think of some of these law of repulsion habits.  I did a.co class on this topic and one of my participants didn’t want to take this document home bc it was too negative–now that is someone who doesn’t let this stuff into her space=-)

Laverty Life Links:  Consider which one or two of the above ideas you are willing to take on this week to see how it affects your life and how you feel=-)

If you are going to tell a story, you may as well tell yourself a good one!

Moab red rocksWe all tell stories to ourselves…some stories we tell uplift and energize us and some stories bring us down about ourselves or others.   

As I told my client last week, if you are going to tell yourself a story, you may as well tell yourself a good one! Your story determines your attitude, your passion and your next steps=-)  I believe that each of us has strength areas in our lives (i.e. Relationships, Career, Family, Financial, Health, Spiritual etc.)  I also believe that each of us has ONE AREA that drives us bananas and most likely will continue to be somewhat challenging throughout our lives.  It is our growth and journey inducing arena=-)

Knowing that one area may continue to baffle and confound me helps me to accept, allow and be patient with myself in that arena. I am committed to “love myself anyway”=-) On the other hand, I have a goal to have the absolute best life possible, so I most likely will be working on and through that arena (for me it is romantic relationships) till the day I take my last breath=-) The questions below get to the heart of that journey and exploring your strength area stories, so you can begin to plant those stories into the more vulnerable areas.

Below is an excerpt of questions from my Harnessing the Laws of Attraction Dabble (www.dabble.co) class:

Please list the Top Strength Areas in your life:

Please list your Belief Systems in these areas:

Please list the Areas for Improvement in your life:

Please list your belief systems in these areas (the “Laws of Repulsion”=-):

Please list your newly created belief systems for your focus areas:

How are you going to plant and practice these new belief systems?

Laverty Life Links: Think of the stories that you tell that energize you and tell those more OFTEN!=-)  Now think of stories you tell that bring your energy down—consider if you can shift that story to a better one. Perhaps you can map on one of your energizing stories onto the more “draining one”.  If you would like the worksheet on this, feel free to let me know and I will email it to you! =-)

 

Laverty’s Perspective of the Law of Attraction and Happy St. Patrick’s Day=-)

 What you have in your life (both the “good” and the “bad”) is a result of your thoughts, actions, emotions and belief systems.

What you think about and focus your energy and emotions upon is further attracted into your life.

Rainbow over water

 The more you can think authentic positive thoughts, feel authentic positive emotions and take authentic positive actions, the more gifts you will have in your life.

Saying it the opposite way: The more you dwell on a regretful past, obsess on the negative, focus on what is wrong, the more of “that” you will attract in your life.

From my perspective, there are a few situations in all of our lives where there is something you don’t understand and seems to be coming “out of left field”.  These situations allow you to learn, grow and expand your capabilities.  Consider looking for what the lesson or gift might be.  As you see the lesson and apply the laws of attraction, I have found that the situation shifts.

*Please note that this is only my perspective based on my studies with Abraham-Hicks (www.abraham-hicks.com). I did not create any of these concepts. I only utilize them in my life to the best of my ability. I have found it is true only 100% of the time=-) The only way to know for yourself would be to try it as well, certainly do not take my word or anyone else’s word for it!

Laverty’s Life Links:  Consider how you can leverage the principles above that speak to you throughout your day. Notice how you feel when you take a moment to be grateful and focus on what you want.

I hope we all enjoy a little luck of the Irish today!=-)
