Suze Orman Gives Homework

On her last show (10-10-09), she had a girl that was making $80,000 a year, and ended up leaving a career, got married, lost herself, got divorced and is now in debt living with her sister. Suze asked what is the one thing holding her back and she replied with the exact same answer that I was going to give…FEAR. Suze gave her an assignment to do for the next thirty days and I have taken it upon myself to do the assignment too.

She told her to create a new ‘truth’. She said to write down on a piece of paper 25 times a day, “I am more successful than I ever drempt possible” and to repeat it to yourself a few times a day while looking at yourself in the mirror. Look directly into your eyes and repeat that saying. Do this for 30 days and see where you are and what changes have taken place.

I, being a big believer in the law of attraction, believe that when you think positive, positive things happen. With the way I have been thinking lately with the mortgage, life in general, my husbands lack of work, all the anger, etc…it dawned on me that I am putting too much focus on the negative aspects. SO, once again, it took Suze to snap me out of my weekly funk and I am going to put as much effort in this as I can and at the end of the month, I really want to feel that the saying is in fact my new truth!

I will share my journey with you….

Dear Santa: All I want is a job for my husband

Dear Santa,

This letter may seem as if it is going to go in all different directions but please know that these are my true feelings and true wishes and I wanted you to know, I still “Believe”. It’s been since mid-October that my husband has had a job. You see, he is in construction. He is a drywall finisher with just about 20 years experience. As you may have heard the housing market is not doing so well, but that isn’t even the half of it. The work he does isn’t even residential; he works on commercial job sites, you know like office build outs, new retail shops, office renovations and things of that nature. Yet again, that isn’t even the problem. The fact of the matter remains that the economy is headed south. Yes, it is winter here and I’d like to head south right along with the economy, but unfortunately due to finances we have to stay here for the duration. See, going south isn’t an option seeing that I can barely afford to pay a mortgage on half a unemployment salary and me being a mompreneur. No, I am not complaining, just saying… It is very tough right now, trying to remain strong and positive for my husband, for the kids and for myself. Doing our best to provide the kids with a happy holiday, even though deep down inside I know that my oldest is scared to death of losing her house, which we have reassured her that no one will take our house, that we will do all we can to make sure that never happens. Did you know, 5th graders know a lot! Yeah, I’ve watched “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” and no, I don’t believe I am, so she catches on quick to things around her. I know my husband is too proud to ask for help, so I am here to do it for him. He knows nothing, and I mean nothing about computers so here I am, asking you, dearest Santa to please bring my husband a job this year for Christmas. He is a hard worker and his main goal is to be able to provide for his family. It doesn’t have to be a labor type job, he is getting up there in age (even though he is only 40, when he used to come home from work, he’d complain that his hands hurt, his back, knees, etc…) that he would even be happy with a nice superintendent job or something along that line. Oh, he also loves sports. Makes calls to the tv even before the ref’s make them. I swear he should go to ref school. But, that costs money and the odds of him going pro is pretty slim from what I’ve read. I thought perhaps he can start a blog about sports, or open an online store of some kind, but I figure I’d just leave all the miracle working to you since this is the season to be jolly. Oh yeah, and before I forget, Alyssa would like to meet Miley Cyrus or Demi Lovato, Scotty would like a PSP, Gianna would like to go back to see Mickey and Minnie, Steve would like a job, and for me, all I would like to see is the happiness and light of hope put back into my husband’s eyes.

With Love,

Million Dollar Manifestation Mission Test

The Law of Attraction, does it really work? Well, I would like to think it does. There have been many times in my life that if I believed in something strongly enough it would almost miraculously come true. If I visioned taking a trip, soon I would be traveling. If I visioned a parking space close to the door, one would free itself for me. If I had visioned a problem being solved, it would be. With that said, I would like to believe that if I vision a million dollars, that too would happen.

I would like to test this theory out by posting my results as they happen. I am going to set up a separate category just for this purpose and it will be listed as “Wealth” and another category for other manifestations called, simply, “Manifestations”. How fitting, right? 🙂 This will give me a way to track and see if I really can manifest one million dollars. I don’t have time to wait years and years while my money earns interest in our savings account, so I would like to do this as efficiently and as quickly as I can. Of course, I have to believe it will happen, and I do believe it. I believe that I will never have to worry about money ever again. I can literally see me relaxed and enjoying my life fully and completely as I sit by our pool. For those that don’t know, I don’t even have a pool, but I will soon! 🙂 If anyone has a nice pool they would like for me to do a product review on, I’d love to have you send it to me, get it all set up in my backyard and let me try it out for life.

A little bit of a background on my financial situations to give you a better idea of where I am coming from. I own my own business and my husband is in a blue collar position. His income is our main source of income, while my business is still in the start up phase as it is just about 18 months old and is still being built daily. My husband works a lot of long, hard and exhausting hours and then does it again, and again, and again. He started his own business on the side as well to see if by chance he too can build something up so he can get out of the labor field and hire others, younger others, to do the labor work for him. It’s the American dream, right, to have your own business so you can hire others to do work you don’t want to or can no longer do? We live a modest life, have 4 year old vehicles, have three children and basically live paycheck to paycheck and have a pile of bills that we have difficulties paying most of the time. We are, the average joe.

I have read that you need to be as specific as you can be when you manifest your desires. I will be meditating twice daily to promote my manifestations to keep them growing and blossoming. I will be saying the following as a way to reinforce the beliefs.

“Thank you for all the support, supply, abundance and money in the sum of one million dollars that you bring to me. I am grateful for these riches which I use in Divine ways to bring blessings to earth.”

The universe is a wonderful thing.  It is here to help us and provide for us.  I think it is time I give it a run for the money, if you know what I mean! 😉  Let the test begin!
