What Tears of Joy mean

So many times in my life I was thrilled to experience the “tears of joy” that we all get. Something joyful happens and we tear up…but why do we do that?

What tears of joy really mean (usually, and I say this from my life experience) is that we are having a wonderful moment of joy, but we know it’s bittersweet, fleeting, and temporary (like for a child’s graduation and lots of things with children)…and we wish to experience it longer, and therefore, we experience a mixed emotion of what is really joy AND anguish about the timing.  I find that this happens to me a LOT!  I feel sincerely moved by the every day living of being a mother and watching my children grow up, watching relationships change over “time”, and the uniqueness of each person I am honored to behold.

I thought this was just my humble opinion, but then I actually found an Abraham-Hicks video about tears of joy…and although she doesn’t say exactly what I just did, she clarifies some cool stuff.

She says that if we are crying for any reason, we are not in the vortex, and the reason we cry when something feels really good is because we aren’t used to feeling good for an extended period of time.  With practicing gradually changing our vibrations, we can change to experience and notice more good in our every day lives, and the moments that would give us tears will give us more pure joy instead, and we’ll get used to living from that purer state.  I suppose I should be asking to manifest overflowing good feelings, so that I can share them with others, rather than observe life.

I like how she talks about relief and clarity!

Much love from Jen C.

My LOA Article was Published on TheMasterShift

Hi, everybody.  Every day is different and usually very fun here at the Jersey Shore while I am enjoying life and manifesting the stuff I want, but recently, my LOA article was published on TheMasterShift.com, a site that I love!  I am so happy and thankful for moments like this that let me know that I am on the right path in my life.

Kudos for me, and kudos for you if you read it and get something out of it. 🙂  Be sure to come back here and leave a comment when you do.

Finding the Feeling Place of Satisfaction and Relief

I’ve heard Esther Hicks say that the feeling of satisfaction is a lot like relief.  Feeling satisfied is so extremely important, it means we really like ourselves, and are happy in our current moment.  It means right now is good, and we aren’t looking ahead to the next moment or worrying about the past.  Satisfaction feels good.

What is the feeling place of satisfaction and relief for you?  Is it:

  • Doing well on a task and celebrating it?
  • Getting something done joyfully–like all your cleaning–and being satisfied with your work and your self?
  • Realizing that you handled a difficult situation well–with ease or patience or kindness?
  • Knowing that so many things are lining up for you–and you created them?
  • Believing in yourself and your own abilities?
  • Feeling like you are so good–just because you are, or because of your performance?
  • Just feeling good where you are at, right now?

If these are the kinds of things that make you feel satisfied, then you are well on your way to being more happy with yourself.  You must have a strong current of self talk that uplifts you, and having satisfaction is an easy way to keep in a higher vibration.  Enjoy who you are, reach for feelings of satisfaction and relief, and watch what happens!  Try to find the feeling place of satisfaction more often, ask for it, and you will be given it.

Much love!  See my monthly calendar here!

Visualizing As If I’ve Already Achieved My Goal

Wouldn’t it be nice if…I was experiencing a lot of happiness, feeling successful, and really rocking my own world?

I just keep on Visualizing as if I’ve already achieved my goal.

Creative visualization is an amazing tool, used by top personal development experts, health experts, especially for those trying to beat a long term illness, and of course, by us LOA coaches as well.  It’s easy and available anytime, because it’s like daydreaming.

Remember when you were in school and it started snowing, and you looked out the window, and thought, “Oh, I hope they cancel school so we can go home early and we can have all day to play in this wonderful, beautiful snow?”  You were daydreaming, and it made you feel great to think that kind of thought.  Still, whether school was let out early or not, you got to play in the afternoon, and you knew it would be wonderful.  Then you felt the wonderful snow for real, enjoying the cold, crisp air and fun with friends on your block. You had an expectation that you would play and you did.

You got your wish in the end, see?

That is the beauty of creative visualization.  You can literally imagine anything you want to manifest right now, and get the good feeling of it now.  Feeling it now, within your reach, is the key.  Enjoying how amazing it feels now, laughing about how easy your life is with this goal accomplished, or having your family happily beside you, is the way to feel your way to it.

Let’s do some now:  Manifesting Good feelings and Better Relationships

I’d like to manifest more good feelings in my life, the feelings of fun, the feeling of ease, the feeling of clarity so that I can know what path to take, the feelings of happiness and joy with my roles in life and with my family.  I see myself laughing and doing something fun with my children, at a leisurely pace.  I see us walking on the beach, holding hands, and speaking with love in our words.  We play and take our time in the sand, finding crabs near the rocks, and digging for mole crabs. We get home safely and easily, and my husband has stopped at our favorite Mexican restaurant and brought home a dinner that we all love. I am overjoyed at his thoughtfulness, and I tell him so.  I feel his big, warm hug, and am teary eyed because I feel so much love for him.  I know that I am a conscious creator, and that I have manifested all of these good feelings, and so the manifestation must come true.

Next:  Manifesting Money

I’d like a little more money in my life, and I like what money can do for me.  I like the feeling of fun and freedom that comes from having money.  I want to thank all the money that is here in my life right now.  I love the money I have, and the money that is on it’s way to me.  I am so happy and thankful for all of my sources of income, and for the gifts I am given.  I receive so many gifts.  I have the gift of time, the gift of life, the gift of fun, the gift of air and water, which are given to me so easily and freely.  I am so thankful for them.  I have the gift of nature, and even if I don’t go to the park every day, I know the trees and animals are always there.  The mountains and lakes and oceans and islands are always there.  Beauty is always there.  I know the feeling of fun and freedom, and it’s running through the sandy beaches or taking a hike up a lovely mist filled mountain.  It’s spending time with my loved ones.  It’s just feeling confident.  It’s saying, “YES!” to something that I want.

If you follow this exercise, I know money will begin to flow to you, and it will flow in various ways, like getting discounts on things you do want, or someone buying you lunch, or winning something, or a good idea will pop into your head, or just actual money…but the vibration of money is really that of empowerment and freedom, so you must feel that in order to have money.

Try it, and let me know how you did with manifesting something that is important to you!

Much love, Jen C.

How to do a Vision Board that works for 2015

I am so excited to post this guest blog article from Zehra Mahoon, a LOA coach in Canada.  I’ve learned so much from her ebook offered at the end. 🙂 I’ve been reading her blog for years, and I frequently use Zehra’s YouTube videos about Abraham.  Hope you’ll enjoy making your vision board for your best year yet!  It really works!

How to do a Vision Board that works for 2015

What is a vision board?  To look at a vision board is a collage of pictures that represent things you want.  It’s a bunch of goals and dreams represented in a visual medium.

To make a vision board work we need to understand what it does for us.  Most people think that we do a vision board in order to put it out there – so that the Universe knows what we want and can bring it to us.  In reality, we don’t need pictures or any other tools to tell the Universe what our desires are, because the Universe is privy to each and every one of our thoughts.  The Universe knows in exact detail what we want and what desires we have been giving birth to since the day we were born.

The reason we do a vision board or a visualization is so that we can gaze on our desires with a feeling of joy. More

Is Fear Good or Is Fear Natural

“Fear is me focused in opposition to who I really AM.”–  Abraham

I like not having much fear, only occasionally.  I like feeling good almost all of the time, and if I”m not, then I know to get connected to my Source and who I really am quickly.  So, today, I thought I’d bring some interesting thoughts on fear and resistance from my good friend, Abraham.  I really like being able to access this information so easily on Youtube or with Abraham-Hicks books.

If you study the LOA, you know that you are part of the Source energy that creates worlds, and that every thought is real. We are connected to our inner guidance system so that we can have access to our Source through our emotions.  Our emotions are the indicators about where we are at on any topic.  If you look at your self, love life, career, or family, you will bring up a variety of emotions. Think about where you are now on each topic.

Is it all rosy and perfect, or do you have some unfulfilled desires? If you do, you can use your emotions to guide you toward more good feelings.  Believe that “every day in every way, you are getting better and better.” as the Silva Method teaches.  Many spiritual teachers, like Louise Hay and Abraham say, “All is well.”  These general statements put us on a path of wellness, with little to no resistance.

Fear stops us from achieving so many dreams we desire.  Oftentimes, we feel like life has gotten hard, and that we are stuck in a situation, we must fulfill a duty, so many people are counting on us, or we just don’t like the lives we’re living and we’re not sure what step to take next.  Fear keeps us confused, and we stay on a perpetually obtuse path, and resenting it, being angry about it, we’re unclear about what we should do, and essentially, stay afraid to “move.”

We create a lot of resistance:  we tell ourselves we aren’t good enough, smart enough, rich enough, socially astute enough– to make something we truly desire–happen.  We complain, which creates more situations to complain about as the LOA brings more of the same back to us.  We think, “if only I had this”, or “if only I had done that.”

Here’s the antidote:  Playing the “Wouldn’t it be nice if” game.  I love using this game, especially when I’m fearful.  I say, Wouldn’t it be nice if…

  • I can move into a better feeling right now?
  • I can choose to feel better?
  • I look for things I want instead of focusing on small details about fears?
  • I focus on things that make me happy?  (And, there are so many things that do.)
  • I can sit quietly and listen to what my Inner Being really thinks of me?
  • My life is getting easier and easier?
  • I can feel the ease in my life?
  • I can feel the path opening up for me?

So, it’s basic and general, and it works to focus on better feelings.  The higher vibration feelings are love, appreciation, passion, empowerment, inspiration, creativity, knowing, belief, faith, hope, clarity, ease, wellbeing, and the like.

I wish these things for you, so that you can access these higher vibrations and lose the fear.

Much love!

Beyond Positive Affirmations

So many people talk about having fear and that  it’s good or natural considering certain circumstances.

Is fear good or is fear natural?  LOA says that fear is us getting a signal from our inner being that is showing us that we don’t agree with the good that our inner being sees us as.

Here’s an interesting video on it from my friend Zehra, another LOA coach.

I have been affirming for a long time, that fear is not real, it’s just me not seeing the truth in a situation.  I know when I’m getting fearful of something (like someone getting sick or not having enough) is to be general about everything in order to get off the subject.  It is always such a relief to change the subject, as this video talks about!  It works every time!

I know I started talking about something yesterday, and it was…

Why My Kids Believe in the Idea of Santa But They Don’t Believe in Santa

Here’s a nice holiday surprise!  My little girls do not believe in Santa.  And I’m the one who made sure of it!  I’ve told them from when they were really young that Santa is really Mommy and Daddy and all the good people that want to give. And we are Santa every day, and they can be Santa also.  I want my children to grow up wanting to give, and at this time of year, it’s easy to have fun with gift giving for us, and for the charities we care about.  And since we do nurture imagination in all of our lives, this was no big deal to allow them to generously give to others for Christmas and every day.

I couldn’t bring myself to tell them a lie after doing the Santa routine with my oldest and having her lose trust in me for carrying it on.  I let her find out and get doubts and finally told her, but it was like she had a burden because we’d lied.

So, I chose to handle it differently with my two littler ones.   More

LOA and Divorce or Fixing Your Marriage?

Abraham says that divorce would never happen if the person was in the vortex! So, why does anyone ever really get divorced? Let’s explore the real reasons! I’m going to discuss how to get happy within your marriage so that you can avoid a divorce to begin with, or get happy and get out of your marriage, so that you can really enjoy your life.

Years ago, I created the Real-Divorce.com site about uncontested divorce to show others how to get divorced peacefully, or amicably, if that is at all possible, so, I am not holding back when I say that the reason anyone ever gets divorced is simply a combination of:

  • the person isn’t happy and also thinks it’s up to his/her partner to create the happiness he/she wants,
  • the person doesn’t accept him/herself,
  • the person finds fault with or blames the partner or others for his/her problems.

Comment below if you agree or disagree with this, but I believe that when a person isn’t happy, and thinks the partner has to do things for him/her, (which most people do if you pay attention), it is an extremely manipulative way of thinking and living.  In fact, it is detrimental to relationships!  Examples of this include: More

Does the Law of Attraction Work and Some Abraham Processes

Have you been wondering, “Does the law of attraction work?”  I meet many people who say it does, and many that do not.

Life has many flavors, colors, feelings, senses, and we are all exposed to various people and situations that shape us into the beings we become. It is never our circumstance itself, but how we view the “hand we are dealt” that determines how we think about ourselves and life.

The law of attraction is what sets up this process of deciding what we like and don’t like, and then as we focus our attention (even the newborn baby will believe it will be cared for–or not) we map out our “emotional set points” for our future lives, and therefore, our happiness.

Sounds crazy, right?

The cool thing is the the law says that if we focus our attention and generally believe that good things will happen, then they will (like an expectation), and that if we believe negative things will happen, then they will.  This article will explain the camps of thought about LOA, and how to use it should you like to test it out for yourself…that is the easy part, so relax into it!
