Luck has nothing to do with it…. Truly, it doesn’t!

Although I try not to complain too much to others and prefer to move into a better feeling vibrational place on my own regarding whatever I may have resistance about, like everyone here, I do sometimes slip and complain.
So the other day I was complaining about being busier than usual, and by husband commented, “You’re just lucky every day is not like that!”
Well, I’m not quite sure what possessed him to say such a thing (that’s not true, I knew exactly what he was trying to tell me of course) and my response was a very strong, “Luck has nothing to do with it!” Which pretty much ended the conversation. (Which was my way of saying, “I can’t believe you just said that to me, you know what I think about that comment!”)
There are a number of very different perspectives this comment can come from, both positive and negative.
1. I see things are working out well for you and I have no idea how, but would love to know how!
2. I see things are working out well for you and it makes me feel jealous because nothing seems to be working out well for me and I don’t know why?
3. I see things are working out well for you, and I’m annoyed because it feels like I’m working much harder than you but not receiving what I feel I deserve.
4. I see things are working out well for you, I bet you’re really appreciating it; I totally want to know what you’re doing! Do you think some of that will rub off on me!(Hehehe….I hope so!)
It’s not so much about the words we are speaking, but the intentions we hold while we are speaking them. (Remember, it’s not possible to hide what our true intentions are, the Universe knows, and so does everyone else usually) But it would be true to say, the better our intentions are as we speak our words, the more meaning and importance these words have, especially when they are heard by one that’s in a close enough vibrational vicinity to truly hear them.

So in the past it annoyed me when people commented I was “so lucky” when something good was happening in my life, because I always felt like no matter whether this was coming from a generally positive place or a negative place on their part, it always downplayed anything we may have done through our thought and action preceding this wanted circumstance turning up, as if things were just unfolding magically in our favour, with no effort or input from ourselves? And although this may be how it sometimes appears when observing others, there’s always more to the story than this.
There are many ways one can go about achieving that which they are wanting, but it always comes down to what our thoughts are regarding whatever we’re wanting, that then inspires action.
What did I just say?
I think I said, every action, no matter what that action is, is inspired by and through the thoughts we’ve predominantly been thinking in relation to whatever the subject is we’ve been thinking about.
So for anyone to take any action, positive or negative, wanted or unwanted, there has been thoughts that have been given enough focused attention (whether we’ve been aware of them or not) that the Law of Attraction has responded in-kind to, that attracts manifestations of the same vibrational frequency and inspires us into actions that are also in the same vibrational vicinity.
That’s a very good thing to know, don’t you think?
What that means, is that by the time we feel inspired into taking action, there is quite a lot of momentum behind us that makes it quite difficult to pull back from doing…. which isn’t a problem when it’s a positive action that is moving us in a direction we are wanting to go, but if it’s a negative action that is moving us in a direction we are not wanting to go, it takes some very strong will power to not carry that action out to its conclusion.
Well, now you might be thinking, “That doesn’t sound too good now?” And I say, “It is not possible to hide from the truth, the truth is the truth, whether we are liking it or not.”
But like I’ve said before “Knowledge is Power”

And so it is…

The Lego Movie….a “TOTALLY AWESOME” review!

I absolutely love kids movies, and the Lego Movie is no exception to the rule as far as I’m concerned!!
When I first started watching the trailer I thought, seriously, a movie with little plastic Lego people, how ridiculous!
But I’m telling you, by the end of watching the trailer, I was convinced this was going to be the best movie ever!!
And for any of my unfortunate friends (you know who you are!) that happened to be around me for more than five minutes, I went on and on about how wonderful this movie was going to be, and I even reenacted some of the scenes I’d seen on the trailer, I just couldn’t help myself!!
Awesome has always been one of my favourite words, but now it’s “AWESOME” with pump-action hand signals like….

Which of course, is “TOTALLY AWESOME”. Hehehe….
So whether anyone else likes it or not, doesn’t matter to me, because I absolutely loved it, and that brings me back to the reason why I love kids movies so much.

I think the majority of people involved in the production of children’s movies, ( I don’t include children’s TV cartoons in this category ) have thought very deeply about the messages they think will be beneficial to their young audiences.
Many are relaying messages such as;

Believe in yourself…
Anything is possible…
If you believe that it will be, it will be…
Treat others as you yourself wish to be treated…
Be kind to others, but also stand up for yourself…
You are special….and so is everyone else, in their own way…
Most of the time, things are working out, even when it feels like they aren’t…

I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
On the whole, these are the types of messages the majority of children’s movies are attempting to convey, and of course there are exceptions to the rule, but I’ve thought about it, and I don’t want to bring your attention to a few kids movies out there that really suck!

As adults, if we strongly dislike children’s movies with these types of messages, it’s usually an indication that we have temporarily lost our way, or have stopped believing in such wonderful, uplifting outcomes because we may have experienced very different results in our own lives. It can be hard to sit through something that you no longer believe is true; and like it.

Of course I’m not suggesting our lives should be like children’s movies, (although it would be “awesome” sometimes!) I’m saying that some of the core messages within these movies are based on Universal Laws, that are pure and based in truth, without the resistant, or negative perspectives that are in the majority of other movies.
Sometimes even though we may not be completely believing these messages, it can still be uplifting and enjoyable to watch.
When we are knowing who we really are, and watching such things, it is truly a joyful, “Awesome Experience!” (Opps, I couldn’t help myself!!)
So, as Emmet would say…”Everything is Awesome,” but just in case it isn’t, let’s do our best to focus on the things around us that are awesome. Failing that, let’s just try to feel a little bit better than where we currently are, and failing that……Uhm……just go and see a movie, preferably something “AWESOME!!”

And so it is….

Is it stink….to like your own post???

Hehehe, Oh this cracks me up!!
When I first started my blog, I would have definitely said yes, it’s very stink to like your own post!! And it’s funny because when I initially set everything up, for some reason my profile picture was coming up in my own community, and I can’t tell you how much time I spent trying frantically to figure out why I was on there and how to get myself off!
So of course, as many of you bloggers out there will know, under my community settings I also had commenters checked, that’s why I was coming up.
Ok, disaster averted, I just changed the settings and all was good, I was no longer in my own community!
Now fast forward three months and I find myself with quite a different perspective on the subject, for a number of different reasons.

1. When looking at my blog stats of where referrers came from, I often ended up on my own page or posts and always ended up reading them again, especially if they were older posts as I often couldn’t remember exactly what it was about or what I’d written. When I’d get to the end of reading the post, if my husband was around I’d say, “I don’t know who wrote this but they know what they’re talking about, this is really good….have you read this!” He’d say “Yer, I know” and then we’d just crack up laughing! (Hehehe, you know I’m going to read this one over and over don’t you!!)
2. I linked my blog to a new Facebook profile because I had a couple of friends who wanted to link to it from there, and although I’ve not been a fan of Facebook in the past, I do like technology so thought it was inevitable I’d have to get on a social media site sooner or later.

So, being on WordPress and Facebook has considerably altered my perspective about social media, and my general conclusions are;

1. It’s probably still a little bit stink to “like” your own stuff, but who cares, and in who’s opinion, if you want to like it, like it! I say, of course you like it, you wrote and posted the damn thing didn’t you, and of course it’s awesome, right!!

2. I also feel very strongly as I look through these forums that many are desperately seeking approval and love, and wanting validation from others for where they are. (Yes, birds of a feather do flock together, don’t they? Well mostly, but not always…)
There’s nothing wrong with this, but one thing is for sure, there will never be enough validation, love, or approval that comes from outside of ourselves in any form whether it’s from online relationships and communication or real life physical relationships.(or anything else for that matter)
For the good feeling one achieves from this lasts only a short time and we will usually find ourselves needing more and more of this external validation in order to feel good.
What does that sound like to you? Yes, for some, it does become an unhealthy addiction.
Now you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out this population consist’s mainly of the female variety. (Thought I’d better check the statistics out, and yes two-thirds of the population on social media are female, 2012 stats)
Of course it’s wonderful to have such external validation as this can help give us strength, especially in difficult times, but nothing will ever make up for the love, approval and validation that we have within us that is available to us in every moment of our lives from the Non-Physical, Inner Being part of us.
Anything less does not last, or is a temporary fix for what we are really reaching for.
And what is it we are reaching for?
The truth of who we are, the power that we have, the love we have within us, the ability to share that love with others that are in a place to receive it, just the pure perfection of who and what we are.
But we must be okay with who we are apart from others, this is true knowing, this is true love, and this is one path among many, that leads to true happiness. And so it is….
