The power of $15mil

This time last week for more than half an hour I sat with the thought that I was the winner of $15 million! Someone in Kiama had won Oz Lotto and I had a ticket. When I walked into the hairdressers they were talking about it and I stopped in my tracks and said ‘I’ve got a ticket’. While I sat in the chair having my hair cut I thought of what I would do with it. Buy the healing centre I had been focused on for the past 25 years, start the two foundations I had also been planning for a very long time (I even have names for them), fix the things around the house that need fixing, maybe move but that would require some thought, donate money for research into Cystic Fibrosis (one of my granddaughters has CF) and so, so much more….

What a wonderful feeling it was knowing all the things I could do. How empowered I felt, how motivated, how alive.

Then when I did check my ticket, alas it was not the winning one. My bubble had burst. The difference in how I felt was interesting. It was as if my power had been taken away. Why was that? Why is it that we associate money with power? This would then infer that if we have insufficient money we have insufficient power. An interesting conundrum if the only way we can have power is to have an abundance of money. This brought up memories of childhood, an old belief that I had picked up from my parents, which when I realised I quickly removed it with ThetaHealing® and installed a different one. We had also been talking at the hairdressers about people who had won large amounts of money spent it all and ended up worse off financially than they were before they had the win. What is it that makes people do that? Is it an unconscious belief that makes them get rid of it because it’s uncomfortable, because they don’t know who they are with all that money or so they just feel the urge to buy as many things as they can until it is all gone? Interesting!

When I arrived home there was a real estate agent brochure and on the front cover was a property that would make a fabulous healing centre. What was I meant to read into that? So many questions that day! Now the picture of the property is stuck up on the wall behind my computer for me to look up at all the time. I still have the power even without the money. Instead of sitting here feeling un-empowered | that I can do nothing | what difference can one person make| etc….   I am now fired up/empowered to manifest all that I thought I could do with that $15 million and how I can put it in place. And how would I feel if I did have $15 million ~ I would feel I could do and achieve anything I set my mind on!

Gratitude is an Attitude

A funny story from a long time ago …

When I first heard about gratitude, years and years ago, I thought

that if I was grateful for what I had in that moment that meant I would be stuck there and never have anything better!

And because that was my belief at the time I didn’t carry out the act of gratitude for many many years.

Definitely not a smart move

I was living in Sydney at the time and wanted desperately to move out of the rat race to somewhere quieter that would feed my soul.

Twenty years ago next month the dream I had held onto for so long came to fruition

and we moved to Kiama, the best decision we ever made!

Before that eventuated I had to sit in the situation I was in at the time and have gratitude for all that I had in my life then and there

I had let go of the belief I’d had such a tight grip on that to be grateful in the moment meant I would be stuck there

So not true!

In fact it was the reverse

Once you begin to have gratitude for what you have in your life then more things start to flow to you

The most important thing is to know what it is you wish to manifest in your life

Most people when asked what they want in their life come up blank

We all have a great long list of all the things we don’t want and nothing on the ‘do want’ list

So what happens is we are focused on the ‘don’t want’ and surprise, surprise that’s what keeps on showing up!!

The lesson here is to have gratitude for everything you have in your life now (just look around you) and focus on what you do want in your life.

Gratitude is a powerful manifestation tool.

TIP: if you have a list of what you don’t want it is easy to flip it to what you do want
