Just Live


“I think the thing to do is enjoy the ride while you’re on it.”

– Johnny Depp –

I think we can over-complicate life in our heads, when in actual fact the truth of the matter is very simple.

I was talking to Darren (my beautiful boyfriend) the other weekend about the meaning of life, and why we’re all here. It was after I had watched The Secret and I was super excited about adding an important piece to the puzzle in my head, the importance of The Law of Attraction and The Power of Intention.

I was especially excited about the notion that life really can be what we make it, and that all we need to do is decide how we want our life to be and what we want to fill it with.

And this was when he blew all of that out of the water (which he is pretty good at doing) and said something pretty profound.

“I actually think the meaning of life is much simpler than that”, said Darren.

“Go on”, I said.

“Well, I think it’s just about experiences.”

And this completely and utterly dumbfounded me. So simple, yet so true.

All we need to do is focus our energies on just enjoying the experience of living.

Stop thinking about what we should be doing and where we should be going. And rather focus our energies on doing things that we love, being with people that we love in places that we love and life will take care of itself.

And that is my thought for the today. Just live.

Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy”

So crazy, ever since watching The Secret yesterday and writing about it in my post, it has completely and utterly reshaped the way that I see the world and how I understand my reality.

The fact that like attracts like, the fact that the more positive things we fill our heads and bodies with and wish for, the more we will attract into our lives. And that The Beatles were right, so often in their lyrics and that the love you take really is equal to the love you make.

Furthermore, I am now starting to understand things on a much deeper and profound level than I have before, especially with regards to the Power of Intention and how to manifest.

A simple example of this is today, when I was willing two books to arrive that I have been waiting for, for a couple of days. When I went to the post box to check for them, I opened the box to see that it was empty. However in my mind and in my heart, I willed them to have arrived. Seeing that they had clearly not, I accepted that perhaps my manifesting powers weren’t working today.

However, 30 minutes later and while I was having a chat with a friend, someone from my building knocked on my door and handed me a package that had been incorrectly delivered to them. I knew instantly that they were my books.

Some people would say that is coincidence and luck, I say it is the Power of the Universe and Manifestation. And if I can manifest something this small and simple, it opens the doors of possibility to things much greater and more exciting!

So, just as yesterday, I challenge you to manifest something into your life. No matter how big or small. Just decide on something that you would really like to happen. Think it with every thought in your head, feel it in every part of your body, will it to happen, believe it will happen and that you deserve it to happen, be grateful for all that you have, fill your head and body with good vibes and take necessary action to manifest whatever it is that you would like to happen, and watch the events unfold. And most importantly, do this from a place of love.

Life is a game, all you need to do is learn how to play. It’s easy.

“What you focus on with thought and feeling is what you attract into your experience, whether or not its something you want.”

– Rhonda Byrne, The Secret

I watched The Secret today. I bought the book a year ago, and for some reason haven’t got around to reading it, but picked it up the other day, and decided to watch the film first.

It is an incredibly powerful film, all about The Law of Attraction.

According to Wikipedia, ‘The Law of Attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy.’

This also compliments the post that I wrote just the other day, ‘What we think, we become‘.

The central theme for the book and the film is the importance of filling your head, your thoughts, your body and your feelings with positivity, and being clear about what you desire to have in life, because like attracts like.

The concept of bringing The Law of Attraction into your life is based on a simple three-step process you can follow, which is:

1. Ask – Decide what you really want. Sit down and write it on a piece of paper. Write it in the present tense and be clear and specific.

2. Believe – You must believe that you have received it already. You must know that what you want is yours the moment you ask. You must have complete and utter faith and that you deserve it.

3. Receive – All you have to do to receive is feel good. When you are feeling good you are on the frequency of receiving. You are on the frequency of all good things coming to you, and you will receive what you have asked for.

And I can speak from complete and utterly honest experience when I say that if you follow these 3 simple steps (and I have been doing this subconsciously for quite some time), you will be able to manifest the most amazing things into your life.

By asking, believing and receiving, not only did I manifest sponsorship and a visa in order to stay in Australia, but I manifested my beautiful boyfriend, and most recently a wonderful new flat that we have both just moved into.

Now some sceptics out there may think this is all a little woo woo and far-fetched, and that is perfectly fine, it will just mean that you won’t be able to manifest, because you’ll be missing step 2 and most probably step 3 as well.

I would say to anyone who is wanting to manifest anything in their life, be it good health, wealth, love or even a new job, all you need to do is start with getting absolutely crystal clear about what it is that you want in life.

Then you must believe that you can have it, and that you deserve it. Believe that it is possible with every ounce of your being, physically and energetically will it to happen.

Close your eyes and visualise every day already having what you want and feeling the feelings. Focus on what you’re grateful for already and enjoy those things. Focus on all of the good things in your life and fill your head with good thoughts and your body with good feelings. Do things that you love and that make you feel happy. Surround yourself with positive people. And then release everything that you desire to The Universe and trust that it will work out how to manifest it.

According to W. Clement Stone ‘Whatever the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve.’ and its true. All we need to do is think about the things we desire in life and believe that we can have them, trust that we can and act upon these thoughts and feelings by taking action to prove to our body that they are possible.

If you wish to have a new car, go and test drive one, if you want to move into a dream house, go and view it or look at a photo of it every day. The list goes on . . .

So if you’re keen to test The Law of Attraction out for yourself, set yourself a goal, however big or small. Decide when you would like to have achieved it by. Get really clear and specific about what that thing is that you would like. Think good thoughts about it. Fill your body with good feelings. Be grateful for everything that you have in your life, by listing at least 3 gratitudes every day. Visualise that you already have the thing you desire, every day. Trust and believe that you already have it. Do this as often as you can. Focus on and fill your life with the things that you love. Be ready and open to receive whatever The Universe sends to you (even if they are things seemingly unrelated to your goal) and watch what happens . . . I promise you, you’ll be amazed.

When I focussed all of my energy, attention, love and passion on getting sponsorship for my company in order to be able to sponsor myself, over the 5 months that it took me to do everything I needed to do in order to be able to put my application in, at every single step of the way, The Universe sent me wonderful and amazing things and especially people to help me. Luckily I was trusting, humble and open enough at every step of the way to receive these gifts, which meant that in the end I was able to achieve something, that (to our knowledge) no one else in history has achieved.

So, the question is, what would you like to manifest. The only limitation is how big you can dream . . . .
