DJT as Conscious Creator

It doesn’t roll off my tongue to call the U.S. president a “conscious” creator, but the truth is he’s one of the most effective examples of conscious creation we’ve seen in a while.
Known to be a student of positive thought, Donald Trump seems to have taken it to the extreme.
Here are just a few of the traits DJT has in common with other effective creators:

  • refuses to acknowledge facts that don’t support his preferred version of reality
  • willing to make his own rules (he plays outside the box)
  • follows his own counsel/guidance
  • doesn’t care too much what others think
  • very selective about his sources of input
  • skilled at spinning stories in ways that serve his purpose
  • holds high opinion of himself
  • does what he wants regardless of others’ expectations
  • knows how to turn attention away from what he doesn’t want (both his own attention and others’)
  • celebrates small wins like they were a big deal
  • engages affirmations to shift opinions and actions (“Drain the swamp”; “Lock her up”)

While I’m not the biggest fan of everything he’s creating, his skill as a creator is undeniable.
Just because we might not appreciate what a fellow creator does with his manifesting power doesn’t mean he’s not good at it.
More than anything, we can use it as inspiration to get on our own manifesting game as well as he’s playing his.
We each get to create what we want. We don’t have to agree with what everyone else is creating and there’s no reason one person’s success has to negate another’s.
Perhaps DJT can galvanize us to use our own creative powers as well as he uses his.

Littlefinger Knows Manifesting

Law of Attraction in Game of Thrones: Manifesting At Its BestSpoiler alert! If you’re a Game of Thrones fan and haven’t watched the season 6 finale yet, then save this post on Littlefinger’s manifesting prowess for later.
But I also propose that if you haven’t yet watched the season 6 finale, you’re not that big a fan and are safe to keep reading.
And for anyone who doesn’t watch the show, I propose you’ll still get conscious creation inspiration from one of the most interesting players of the game
Peter Baelish (aka Littlefinger) is the sort of character that’s easy to have mixed feelings about.
His response, though, when his love interest asks what he wants is straight from the law of attraction playbook.
Littlefinger tells Sansa that she already knows what he wants, and continues to explain:

Every time I’m faced with a decision I close my eyes and see the same picture.
Whenever I consider an action I ask myself, “Will this action help to make this picture a reality? Pull it out of my mind and into the world?”
And I only act if the answer is yes. A picture of me on the Iron Throne and you by my side.

Now that is a guy who is speaking our language!
Talk about commitment to the vision! Every time he’s faced with a decision he mentally conjures visions of his ultimate outcome. That in itself is a powerful LOA practice.
And then he considers which choice will help further that desired end result. Which just enhances his belief in getting there.
That’s aligned decision-making!
(Whether he uses intuition or mental machinations to decide, we don’t know for sure. But either way – he’s doing a great job of working the belief angle!)
And can I just say – single-minded focus!
When I asked myself what my life would look like if I used his same approach, my first thought was, “But which dream to focus on?” Because I’m working a few at the same time!
Not Peter.
He’s got ONE purpose. ONE mission.
That is a focus to admire.
Even if you don’t like Game of Thrones, and even if you don’t like Littlefinger, if you’re a conscious creator you gotta take your hat off to this guy’s approach to making his big dream come true.
And hello, he sure looks good doing it! (So handsome!)
It’s almost enough to make you root for the guy. 🙂
For those who prefer audio, you can hear me rave about Peter at the podcast here. I’d love to hear your thoughts about Peter or Sansa or anything Game of Thrones or LOA in the comments. 🙂

Conor McGregor Creates It Out Loud

Fighters Who Use Law of Attraction

photo credit

“If you can see it, and you have the courage to speak it, it will happen.”
That’s what Conor McGregor said when asked how he predicted his Ultimate Fighting Championship win down to the minutest detail.
We’ve had manifesting inspiration from McGregor here at the blog before, and he continues to prove himself a powerful example of one who consciously turns dreams into reality using the power of mental focus.
Here McGregor is again about his December 12, 2015 win:
“A lot of times people believe in certain things, but they keep it to themselves, they don’t put it out there.
“[If] you truly believe and become vocal with it, you are creating that law of attraction and it will become reality.”

We’ve explored contrasting teachings here before about whether to keep your intentions quiet or whether to declare them out loud for all to hear.
It’s clear what camp McGregor is in!
His results are a compelling argument for going public.
McGregor credits conscious creation again in this interview about his latest UFC Featherweight Championship win:
“I dreamt this so much, so clearly, so precisely, and so frequently that it has manifested itself into reality. It’s a dream come true.”

You have to know some serious magic is happening when Wikipedia reports this about you: “He is currently on a 15-fight win streak, 14 of which have not made it past the second round.”
We might choose to use our creative powers to other endeavors, but regardless of what we’re dreaming into reality, this guy is a manifesting inspiration on how well it works!

LOA for Fight Night Success

Regular contributor Namaste Faustino brings this LOA success story from what seemed an unlikely place, but that just taught me to drop judgment about who’s leveraging conscious creation powers.
Enjoy this example of super successful manifesting:
Law of Attraction for Boxing SuccessEver heard of Conor McGregor?
I hadn’t until flipping through an issue of Esquire magazine, where I saw an awesome Law of Attraction-like-quote in bold.
The article was about a rising star in the world of mixed martial arts.
I’ve since learned Conor is a serious student of the Law of Attraction and attributes much of his incredible success to his LOA skills.
While the Esquire article made no mention of Law of Attraction, I thought, “This fighter has got telling-the-story-the-way-he-wants-it-to-be skills, and focusing skills that would make a lot of conscious creators seriously envious.” Check this out …
In the April 2015 article, Conor talked about his upcoming fight in July that was the biggest of his career. About his opponent:

Smack talk? That is an American term that makes me laugh. I simply speak the truth. I’m an Irish man … I don’t have anything bad to say about my opponent. It’s pretty plain and simple. His time is up … It’s over for him. I don’t need to say jacksh*t else. July is a wrap. IT IS INEVITABLE.

Talk about an awesome example of telling the story the way you want it to be. 🙂
When the interviewer asked if Conor’s ever wondered whether he’ll lose the upcoming fight, Conor explained he hasn’t wondered once about losing. “If I entertain things, they tend to come true.”
At that time he was slated to fight the reigning champion Jose Aldo for the title belt. For Conor to not even wonder once about losing, that’s incredible focusing. Stepping into the ring to fight a reigning champion is no joke.
After reading the Esquire article, I looked up Conor McGregor on YouTube and found this video that proved Conor has been telling the story how he wanted it from the start. He has always talked about becoming a champion.
So fast forward to his big fight in Vegas …
Conor was supposed to fight the reigning champion for the title belt, but when Jose Aldo pulled out due to a broken rib Conor knocked out the incredibly skilled Chad Mendes in the second round.
Shortly after I saw a couple of articles talking about a cage fighter and the Law of Attraction. It turns out Conor knows all about the Law of Attraction and practices the principles avidly!
Here’s what he said when asked about the Law of Attraction:

My sister put me on to the Law of Attraction a few years ago and that made me think about things. Whatever you think is going to happen, will happen. If you visualize it with true belief then it will happen. I took that on board and decided I’m the best. I put myself on a pedestal and everything just formed around it.

And Conor isn’t kidding about everything forming around it, check out this post fight interview. It’s clear he’s the star of this video and he’s loving telling everyone that he told the story he wanted and now it’s come true!
It’s hilarious to see people in the fight world mentioning the Law of Attraction thanks to Conor’s knock out winning fight. Slowly but surely manifesting awareness is spreading everywhere. 🙂
Namaste Faustino learned about manifesting from the Rosicrucians ( when he was eight years old. Initially skeptical, he tried it out and successfully manifested a little red radio. After that he was hooked and over the past 30 years has consciously created cash, trips, girlfriends, a diamond and even a millionaire mentor. Connect with Namaste on Facebook.

Are Seahawks Using LOA Magic?

Seahawks Using LOA MagicIf you saw the Seahawks pull that astonishing win out of their hat late in Sunday’s game, you might have wondered like I did if they were using LOA magic to make it happen.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy called it “unbelievable” and the NFL announcer said, “it’s as improbable a win as I’ve ever witnessed.”
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is known for his unique team management philosophy, including engaging the services of a sports psychologist to teach players “a broad range of visualization and mental-imaging techniques.”
From an interview with Mindful magazine, we learn that team psychologist Michael Gervais trains the Seahawks in the power of positive self-talk to enhance their confidence:

“Confidence is the cornerstone of great performance,” he explains. “And it comes from just one place: what we say to ourselves.”
To be effective, it must be “grounded in credible conversations with yourself,” he adds. “Which means you have to have a disciplined mind to focus on when you’ve been successful in the past and to bring that success into the present.”

When one of their wide receivers struggled with his performance, Gervais taught him how to restructure his negative thinking by creating “mental highlight reels.”
These highlight reels drew from the athlete’s past successes and were to be used whenever he slipped into doubt in order to return to a positive mindset. Conscious creators won’t be surprised to hear that “the effect was startling.”
The sports psychologist also works with the Seahawks on training their minds to envision what they’d like to experience.
It’s hard for me to imagine that all professional athletes aren’t practicing this to some degree or another, but maybe the difference is that Carroll’s Seahawks don’t focus on results.
Rather than talk about championships, they focus on performing their best, since they are taught that focusing on anything outside themselves becomes a distraction.
Richard Sherman says of head coach Pete Carroll: “He makes you think you’re supposed to win, and then when you do win, it doesn’t even feel like a big deal.”
Let’s take a lesson from the Seahawks playbook to enhance our own manifesting game.
For more law of attraction action in Superbowl world, check out these prior posts:

  • Inspiration from Seahawks’ Russell Wilson on how he got in the Superbowl vibe.
  • How the Packers used advance ring fittings (among other things) to get themselves in a winner’s mood.
  • This one quotes Sean McHugh about how the Detroit Lions would maybe hope to win, but the Pittsburgh Steelers developed an expectation to win.

LOA Tip from Foo Fighters Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl knows how to manifest success

image credit:

The other night when Anderson Cooper interviewed Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl we learned the key to Dave’s success:

He loves what he does.

Phrases used to describe his work include:

  • exceeded all expectations
  • massive success
  • catapulting to worldwide stardom
  • staple of rock music

Get a load of this excerpt from his wiki page:

“Between October 2002 and March 2003 Grohl was in the number one spot on the Modern Rock charts for 17 of 18 successive weeks, as a member of three different groups.”

Wowza. That’s a guy who’s got a handle on success.

But in his 60 Minutes interview Dave said he didn’t do any of his work for the fame or fortune. He simply did it for the love of playing music.

Conscious creators who are looking to manifest rewards for their work can learn a thing or two from Dave’s example.

In fact, spiritual teacher Teal Swan said in her Salt Lake workshop earlier this month that “We experience abundance in direct proportion to the amount that we love what we do.”

Meaning, if you want more money, prioritize your joy.

That’s something Dave’s apparently tapped into from the beginning – the joy of making music.

When Anderson asked about his success (pointing out that money has never been Dave’s motivation), here’s how Dave responded:

The reward of playing music should be playing music.

That’s the way I felt before any of this happened.

I wasn’t doing it so this [huge success] would happen. I was doing it because I loved it.

The love of playing should always be the heart of music.

That hit home since I sometimes see coaches and other business owners creating something in order to get the payday.

In the process of manifesting the financial rewards, they sometimes lose track of why they engaged this work in the first place.

Abundance follows Joy

I’ve done it myself, so I know how easy it is.

Yes, money matters. We (believe we) have to make a living.

But that is much easier (and more successfully) accomplished when we stay connected to the love of our work. That is, when we let the work be its own reward.

You’ll find another LOA tidbit in that interview if you tune in, but in the meantime, here’s to engaging our work for the enjoyment of it.

Leading with love, joy and passion is bound to bring other rewards on its heels.

LOA Tools Used by the Pros

What are the essential manifesting tools used by the law of attraction pros?
I asked around to find out. Here’s what the conscious creation experts use to get what they want:
LOA Tools Used by the Pros (Mike Dooley, LOA Godfather)Mike Dooley:
4 Minute Visualization

Every weekday, Monday through Friday, before I drive to my office, I sit down in my home office, on a particular sofa, with a countdown timer set at 4 minutes and 5 seconds, and I visualize.
Sometimes I repeat a mantra while I visualize, like, “I have the Midas Touch!” or “Everything is awesome!” and other times not. I don’t get too specific, usually just feel great joy with the implication that my life is rocking. I am NOT EVEN ALLOWED to think about leaving for work until I do this exercise. I take weekends and holidays off <smile>.
LOA Tools Used by the Pros (Pam Grout)Pam Grout:

The most reliable, #1 go-to manifesting tool for me is to play. Make it fun. Get in the sandbox. We tend to take everything so damned seriously. Why? Be like a kid. A six-year-old doesn’t care why something works. They don’t care about the 7 best steps. Or the secrets of the universe.They’re just looking for what’s fun right now. In this moment.
The universe has so much to bestow and will do so when we quit blocking it with our stone cold seriousness. Best strategy? Open those joy channels. 
LOA Tools Used by the Pros - Jeanna GabelliniJeanna Gabellini:
Speed Dial the Universe

Jeanna reported back that her favorite manifesting tool is her personally designed written process for creating alignment: Speed Dial the Universe. It’s a written practice where she starts each day by appreciating something, choosing a dominant feeling for the day, picking a point of focus and delegating all else to Universe, ending with a wild hair intention and recalling a past success.
Lots of people rave about this compilation process!
LOA Tools Used by the Pros - Eva GregoryEva Gregory:
What If Up Game

Mine is without a doubt the What If UP Game! This little process will turn around a resistant vibration to a vibration of connection within seconds! This process alone can turn the quality of your life around on a dime, if you let it!
Play the What If Up game here.
LOA Tools Used by the ProsJoe Vitale:
Joe is known for his enthusiasm of ho’oponopono as taught by Dr. Hew Len. It might not be considered an LOA tool in the strictest sense, but it is known to work magic in creating vibrational alignment to what we want. (Dr. Len used it to manifest to heal a ward of mentally ill criminals in the Hawaii State Hospital.)
It’s a simple process that you can learn more about here.
LOA Tools Used by the Pros - Melody FletcherMelody Fletcher:
I don’t think there’s anything more powerful in terms of manifesting what you want than the practice of celebration. The terms “gratitude” and “appreciation” get thrown around a lot, but they can come with a lot of baggage, as well. You’re supposed to be grateful. You should appreciate. But celebration is just full of joy. No one forces you to celebrate.
When you celebrate everything, all those little wonderful things that surround you every day, all the stuff that goes right and which you might be taking for granted, you instantly and consistently raise your vibration to the frequency of Who You Really Are. When you match that frequency, everything you want will come flooding into your reality. Try this for 30 days and see what happens to your reality.
Disclaimer: This technique should only be attempted by those who are ready to be bombarded by awesomeness. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
LOA Tools Used by the Pros - Denise Duffield-ThomasDenise Duffield-Thomas:
Without a doubt, my best Law of Attraction tool is complete love and self-acceptance, which is easier some days than others. Reading the works of Louise Hay helps with this and so does Emotional Freedom Technique. When I practice love and acceptance towards myself, I give myself permission for life to be fun, easy and abundant.
LOA Tools Used by the Pros - Julia Rogers-HamrickJulia Rogers-Hamrick:
Easy World
Julia’s go to method is Easy World. Here’s what she says about that: choosing Easy World is the fastest, easiest way to get to a high vibrational state. Just say the Easy World invocation, “I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy,” and then take the Easy World actions, which are to breathe…relax…allow…enjoy…and watch the magic unfold.
If action is required on your part to birth your desire into form, know that when you are in Easy World, you are naturally and spontaneously inspired to do those things which are in alignment with the Divine Design and which expedite the manifestation of your desires. Easy World actions are enjoyable, juicy and, of course, easy! 
LOA Tools Used by the ProsEsther Hicks:
Focus Wheel

While Esther didn’t respond to my inquiry, I suspect from what I’ve heard in Abraham material that her favorite tool is the focus wheel. (Which in LOA circles seems to be a process you either love or can’t stand. Not much middle ground on that one it seems.)
If you’ve got any insight on Esther’s personal practice, please share.

This compilation from the LOA experts confirms what we learned about our own favorite manifesting practices – that there isn’t necessarily one best tool for us all.

Big thanks to the manifesting masters who were generous enough to respond for this post. We love your work!
And I hope after reading through the LOA tools used by the pros that you’ve found renewed inspiration for your own practice in how you walk the LOA talk. Happy manifesting!

"Miracles Aren't Random": Olympic Skier Manifests Gold

miracles aren't random: olympic skier manifests gold

image credit:

What does 18 year old Mikaela Shiffrin know about miracles?
She knows how to create one, that’s for sure.
In the 2014 Sochi Olympics she became the youngest woman to win slalom gold, and the first American to win women’s slalom since 1972.
She’s literally been studying skiing since the age of 5 and has put in enough training that her coach says she’s more like 25 years old, not 18.
In addition to the physical training, Mikaela put in the mental time to manifest her Olympic gold medal.
She said she envisioned the moment many times, imagining what winning a gold medal would look like. And while everyone else considered it her first Olympics, Mikaela had done it in her head enough times that it felt like her 1000th.
My favorite part of her story was when she said this:

I wanted to prove miracles aren’t random, that you can create your destiny. So I wanted to come here and create my own miracle.

Well done, fellow creator.
Mikaela also shared:
“You can visualize this in your head and you can mentally prepare and you can make the moment happen and create your miracle. But when it does happen, it’s hard to put into words how incredible it is.”
Pretty cool manifesting, if you ask me.
She reports her stream of thought when she had a frightening wobble in the middle of her run:

There I was. I’m like, ‘All right, I’m going to just go win my first medal.’ Then in the middle of the run, I’m like, ‘Guess not.’ Then I was like, ‘No, don’t do that. Do not give up. You see this through.’

And that’s how Mikaela manifested gold in Sochi’s women’s slalom.
Boston Globe’s Shira Springer writes: ” … under the intense Winter Games spotlight, she looked like the seasoned Olympic veteran she was in her head.”
Indeed. Can’t wait to see what Mikaela creates next. 🙂
