If you know me, you know that one of the things I am fascinated by is manifestation work, and one of the stronger types of manifestation is a technique known as “act as if”. In this method, you chose a goal, think about how things would be if you had already achieved this goal, and then take on as many of the beliefs, behaviors and activities that go with that new reality as you can.

For instance, if you want to be good at a game or sport, you think about what life would be like if you already were. How would you dress? How would you act? What would you give more time to and what less? What would you think about?

And then, to the best of your ability, you do just that

Not only will this give you practice in the skills you need, it also energetically attracts that new reality to you.

Well…

About a month ago, our schedules had eased off and Starwolf was going to be away for most of the weekend. I had a lot of work to do on this year’s book, and so I resolved to have an “act as if” professional writer’s weekend. I decided to, while I got caught up on my editing, act as if I was already a fabulously successful and famous author.

Like so

I got myself special treats, like sushi and pasta, that felt like what I’d eat as a successful author. I prepared writing courses in books and on recording to do in between editing sessions. I planned meditation to support  clear and creative mind and good health. I chose dramatic clothes to wear, to further the act as if process

and…

well let’s say the weekend didn’t turn out like I expected…

designallThe first thing that happened was that a writing clock that I had designed arrived, and that was very cool indeed. But things went down hill from there.

The phone kept ringing with interruptions that had to be dealt with. People in some of my online writing groups were passing out bad information, or bullying other members, and I had to step in repeatedly. My shoulder and my foot started aching again, and had to be dealt with. The weather was hot with bad air quality, which made me dopey and a bit sick; and the associated nausea didn’t match with many of the foods that I had set up. The nap fairy kept knocking me out

I had planned on something kinda suave and elegant and calm and productive. What I ended up with was more like a scene from some kind of sitcom.

But I still got a lot of work done….

And that’s ok.

I planned an “act as if” professional writer’s weekend, and sometimes that’s something full of elegance and grace- but sometimes its full of interruptions loss of dignity and crankiness and grilled cheese sandwiches.

and the “act as if” professional writer will take whatever comes and still get the writing done

Still writing, even if my hair is a mess ;)

If you’ve followed my adventures here or elsewhere, you know that I’m fascinated by manifestation work.

And so, because our crazy activity level has dropped off for awhile and Starwolf is going to be off at a con for a good amount of the weekend, I’m going to devote my weekend to some manifestation practices.

Specifically, the “act as if” technique, which says that, if you want to achieve a goal, you figure out how someone who has achieved that goal would talk and act and think, and what they would do, and as much as is possible, start doing those things yourself.

Some people call this the “fake it til you make it” technique. I don’t much care for that name- it puts a negative spin both on having dreams and on trying to achieve them. I prefer to think of this as “act as if”. I get to try on a new role or skill, and play at it until it’s comfortable and til I attract it to me full time.

Now I, as you may know, am a writer. I’m a good writer but I’d like to be a better and more successful writer. Not so much for the money (although that’s a nice thing too), but more for having more people read my books, being able to reach and help more people that way, and doing well enough with my books that I could afford to write full time

That would be a lovely thing.

And so, because my love will be doing other things and I have some big time editing to catch up on, I plan to “act as if” I was a very successful writer.

I have books on writing I’ll be reading. I have plans for special treats to eat throughout the weekend, like pasta and croissants and sushi. I have meditation tapes that will reinforce my writer skills. I’ll be taking breaks for little spa treatments to pamper and relax myself.

And I’ll be re-writing and editing like a house on fire. I hope to have my edit done by weekend’s end and ready to send out to my readers

If all goes as intended, I will get a lot of writing done and have a lovely weekend in the practice. And, energetically, I’ll move myself further along the path of putting my work out there so that it can help other people grow.

And what about you? What could you “act as if” to bring your dreams one step closer?..

It’s another podcast coming up to help you make your life better

A little over two weeks from tonight, on Wednesday night (5/14/14), I’ll be appearing from 8-9 pm on the New Normal with Tchipakkan on http://liveparanormal.com/

Had a bad day? A bad week? A bad year? A bad lifetime?

Does it feel like a dark cloud follows you around wherever you go?

Sometimes “bad luck” is just random challenges happening at the wrong time. Sometimes it is caused by external forces or ill wishing, But sometimes ill fortune is a “do it yourself” project, drawn to us by the things we focus on and do.

Come learn how misuse of your conscious mind, the Mind-Body Connection and stinking thinking can screw up your life- and how you can turn that “bad luck” into good vibrations.

Want to catch this interview, call in with your own questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

If you just want to listen, you can go to the above site, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.

If you want to chat, you’ll need to go to the top of the home page on the extreme right and click “Join” to set up a personal account ( it’s free but takes a few moments, so you might want to do this in advance)

There are provisions for listeners to phone in with questions, too.

And, if you can’t tune in at that time, Live Paranormal.com archives its shows for your listening at a time convenient to you.

Hope you can join me two weeks from tonight from 8-9 at the New Normal on liveparanormal.com

We’ve already talked a bit about how your beliefs shape your reality ( for previous links click here and here)

So lets tackle another one of these.

Many people believe that good luck is scarce and hard to come by- and by believing that, they push good luck away and magnetize hard times to them.

Some folks believe good luck is scarce- but have you ever noticed that some people seem to “just be lucky” most of the time? The ones that “good things just happen to” over and over?

We’ve all seen these people- and if you think about it, the fact that these folks exist challenges the concept that good luck is scarce or hard to come by. If it was, these folks wouldn’t have the lives they do.

Lets look at this in another way. If some folks are repeatedly lucky, well then that’s something that’s possible. And if they can do it, perhaps we can too…

What if good luck wasn’t scarce or hard to come by? What if you believed it was as common as the air you breathe?

Saw a post on Facebook the other day that said “Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy”.

Let’s think about that for a moment.

Now it’s true that good things are worth working for. It’s not a bad thing to remember that you may want to put in some effort if there’s something you really want at the end of the road.

But that doesn’t mean that nothing worth having comes easy. Sometimes great things just drop into your arms. This happens in life often enough that we even have a word for it – “Serendipity”; and if there’s a word for it, you know that it’s something that exists.

And the belief that nothing worth having comes easily can be a real trap for you. Energetically, it’ll tend to attract more hard work into your life than is needed to attract your goals and repel simpler methods that might be just as good at getting you where you want to go. And psychologically, it can cause you to assume anything you have to work hard for must have value (which is not always the case) and anything that comes easily must be worthless (which is also untrue)

So what if, instead of “Nothing worth having comes easy.” , you chose instead to believe “Good things come easily and joyously into my life.”, “It’s worth working for the things I want.” or “Sometimes I need to work to make things happen- and sometimes they just come to me.”

Later in this series of posts, I’ll be talking about how to change beliefs that don’t serve you for those that do. For now, just give this some thought and get clear on what you’d like to believe.

What if good things were easy for you?

Did you know that what you believe shapes your reality?

It’s true…

You have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind, and the unconscious mind has the ability to shape reality to be in line with what you believe to be true. If you believe that people are kind, you’ll tend to attract kind people or manifest them in your life. If you believe people are cruel and selfish, that’s the kind of folks that will flood into your life.

Part of that is because we tend to find more of what we’re looking for and overlook what we’re not, but it’s also true that, when we focus our attention on something, we put our energetic vibration in harmony with it and make ourselves magnetic to it.

And our beliefs have a great deal to do with what we focus on and make ourselves magnetic to. Some of our beliefs are ones we’ve consciously chosen, but a lot of them are things we’ve picked up along the way without noticing, and those beliefs may not necessarily be in our best interests or attract the things, people and experiences we’d like.

Fortunately, there are ways of clearing beliefs that are dysfunctional and replacing them with ones that serve us better.

So let’s take a look at some of the beliefs that get in our way, and ones that would help us have better lives.

More coming…

Time for more local color.

Earlier this week (The Color of Starwolf), I posted a copy of Starwolf’s latest aura photo and told you that different people have different kinds of auras with different colors in them, reflecting such things as health, personality, energy and metaphysical practices.

To give you an example of this, here’s a peek at one of my aura photos, taken a number of years ago…

31178_384818978291_172408108291_3950320_1821647_n[1]

Take a moment to click back through the above link, or scroll back through the blog to check out Starwolf’s aura for contrast. As you can see, I’m a very different person than my husband Starwolf is. And time and experience can also have an effect on the nature of your aura.

So, once again, what do you think your aura looks like?

Ever wonder what an aura looks like?

Starwolf went to Salem this weekend with a friend and had his aura photo taken. Take a look…

Starwolf Aura Jun82013

Yes, he’s in there somewhere- but the energy surrounding him is thick, deep and colorful enough to make it hard to see his physical face when photographed using Kirlian photography. Auras show up in different colors, which indicate different things about the person, including health, energy level, metaphysical activity and spirit guides.

So Starwolf is a colorful character in quite a number of different ways.

Have you ever had your aura photographed? What do you think your energy looks like?

well….

we seem to have finally entered spring….

(*freezes, looks quickly around in all directions for snow, then sighs in relief*)

and its time for spring cleaning.

But that’s not just about shaking out the snow boots, putting away the shovels for another year and getting some fresh air flowing through a house that’s been shut up for the winter. Did you know that you can put an energetic spin on spring cleaning, so that you not only have a cleaner house but also clear your energy and set it to attract new and better things into your life?

Simple stuff. As you clean and get rid of things( like dust bunnies) that you don’t need anymore, you also set an intention that, as you clear things you no longer need out of your house, you make room for things that suit you better to come into your life. An “intention” is just a metaphysical term for a goal that is use to move energy in the direction that you want it to go, and, by combining such an intention with the act of spring cleaning, you turn a basic chore into a technique for manifesting something better (one that has roots going back to antiquity)

So, throw open those windows, clean those floors or do a  start of the year declutter and let the power of intention bring you a springtime bonus with your housecleaning.

(PS You could also tie your springcleaning intentions into your personal goals – see “Time for New Beginnings”)
