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=-)

 

Top 10 Ways to Harness the Laws of Attraction=-)

Yellow tulips with one red one

Practice gratitude for all of your blessings.

Accept your past as the gift it was meant to be—to bring you to who you are now.

Forgive another for things you perceive were done to you knowing they only lead you to create the life you were meant to have.

Visualize how you want to feel, how you want to be and what you want to create.Bless people you meet throughout the day.

Surround yourself with people and things you love.

Create habits that support your health and happiness.

Be aware of your thoughts, feelings and desires.

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! =-)

 

A Flood of Gifts

Abstract sea and ocean backgrounds for your designI guess this is a bit of a Part II from the Flood of Opportunities=-)  A month later and through, I can share some of the amazing gifts that have come from the experience of having my home flooded. 

  1. Amazing, amazing people from my insurance company—their love, support, care and calmness in the face of the storm continues to amaze me.  I get off the phone with James and literally think…I love you…..He is so kind.
  2. Feeling like there is a net here in the universe—a support system such that when I fall, there is someone/something to catch me.  I wouldn’t have noticed the net unless I fell.
  3. Experience that “oneness” in the universe…we are all one, we are all connected…none higher, none lower….just one.
  4. Releasing my anger towards the people culpable for this and trusting that this was meant to be, and yet finding the empowerment to ensure it doesn’t happen again…to the best of my ability.
  5. Finding confidence, strength and empowerment in me in new arenas which will help me feel more capable in life.
  6. Showing my daughter how to weather a storm with grace..and having her follow in grace….this is priceless.

There are many more gifts for me, but you get the idea….I am also becoming Miss Home Depot which is slightly hilarious!

Laverty Life Links:  What is a situation you have weathered and what are the gifts you have gained?  Be sure to take the time to honor those gifts lest the universe think you need another round of lessons in that arena!!=-)

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!=-)

A Flood of Opportunities

100_5307Hello!  All has been very quiet on the western front for the past month in part because we had a flood in our house, and there was quite a bit of damage and the ensuing fun that comes with as a friend said a “forced renovation”=-)

I believe that the universe at times gives us an opportunity that can be highly triggering and yet comes bearing many gifts, and this flood for me was one of those opportunities.  When something like this happens I think each of us can either choose to be/feel a victim or be/feel empowered.  I have had feelings on both sides, and I can tell you the empowered feelings are a lot more fun.

A few of the mantras I found I used were as follows:

  1.  Everything that happens is meant to be, so now what?
  2. I am doing the best that I can and that is good enough.
  3. Everything will work out as it should.
  4. Meditate and center and listen to intuition.
  5. God is taking care of me–feel the support and love that is coming my way.
  6. How can I leverage the laws of attraction?

I share this in part to explain my month long silence, and in part because I hope that perhaps it will help you find peace through your version of a minor or major life reroute=-)

Laverty Life Link:  How can you find your center and your balance in the midst of turmoil and triggers?  How can you continue to find the gifts through the process such that you can leverage the laws of attraction so that things will get on track faster?

PS: So funny, I just went to post this and I see my last post was 2/18 and that was the day of the flood. I must have posted in the morning!=-)

PPS: So funny #2, my Social Media consultant has been requesting that I add pictures to my blogs…well here you go!  A little sad picture of my office area on 2/18.
