Q&A: How to Help Another Heal?

How to Help a Loved One HealHow to help manifest a loved one’s healing? It’s a situation many of us bump into sooner or later.
Today’s question comes from a reader who has tried visioning her son’s health and wellness, but his symptoms persist.
Here’s the question:

It’s easier to manifest healing in oneself. However I am having challenges when it comes to healing for my son.
He developed some pain on his legs and all the doctors and lab tests come up clean. The doctors are stumped and I am at my wits’ end. I try to see him healed and well again but … it does not seem to be working.
Any ideas or tips on what process I can do?

I’ve run into this challenge myself when it comes to the health and vitality of my dogs and cats. (That’s one of my toughest times for being able to focus on what I want vs. don’t want.)
Since this can be a highly charged situation even for LOA savvy folks, I’m soliciting your wisdom.
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts and experiences, fellow creators!

LOA Approved Diets?

law of attraction diets

It seems everyone’s talking about diets this month, which made me wonder if there’s room for a good LOA-er in those conversations.
Is there such a thing as a law of attraction friendly diet?
One that doesn’t violate our understanding that vibration rules the day, not carbs or calories?
Because any time we set aside our own inner knowing or inspiration in favor of someone else’s rules, it’s easy to get out of sync with our best path to health.

There’s no doubt that many creators become inspired to embrace specific traditional diets that allow certain foods and ban others.  (I know a fellow LOA coach who had a lot of fun losing 50+ pounds on Weight Watchers, and another who dropped two dress sizes when she started paleo eating.)

That’s all well and good when someone finds a traditional diet that lights them up.  (We know whatever we’re inspired to when we’re aligned to what we want is bound to serve us well.)
But what I’m wondering about is a diet in accordance with what manifesters know about energy and thought – one that honors our understanding that there’s no such thing as a “good” food or a “bad” food and doesn’t impose rules that potentially drown out our own inner guidance.
After hearing from several of you in the comments, here’s what our updated list looks like so far:

Paul McKenna’s I Can Make You Thin.
The Joy Diet (Martha Beck)
The Laughter Diet
The Sex Diet
The Donut Whisperer
Sondra Ray’s The Only Diet There Is
Carmela Ramaglia’s Happy Calories Don’t Count
The Gabriel Method

Let’s take a look at a couple of these …
From I Can Make You Thin, Paul’s advice may not be considered a “diet” per se, but more of eating guidelines. These instructions seem very much in alignment with what deliberate creators know about how the world works.  (Meaning, it isn’t the food that makes the difference, it’s our thoughts, i.e. vibration, that dictate our experience.)
Paul’s four rules are:

1. Eat only when you’re hungry.
2. Eat what you want to, not what you think you should.
3. Eat consciously and enjoy every mouthful.
4. Stop when you are full.

A lifestyle based on conscious awareness of the body, food enjoyment, and free of “shoulds”?  That sounds LOA-friendly to me!
As is Martha Beck’s Joy Diet, which actually isn’t designed for weight loss, but for life happiness.  It seems to me, though, those two things often go hand in hand.
Here are Martha’s ten guidelines from the joy diet:

  • Nothing: Do nothing for fifteen minutes a day. Stop mindlessly chasing goals and figure out which goals are worth going after.
  • Truth: Create a moment of truth to help you unmask what you’re hiding—from others and from yourself.
  • Desire: Identify, articulate, and explore at least one of your heart’s desires—and learn how to let yourself want what you want.
  • Creativity: Learn six new ways to develop at least one new idea to help you obtain your heart’s desire.
  • Risk: Take one baby step toward reaching your goal. The only rule is it has to scare the pants off you.
  • Treats: Give yourself a treat for every risk you take and two treats just because you’re you. No exceptions. No excuses.
  • Play: Take a moment to remember your real life’s work and differentiate it from the games you play to achieve it. Then play wholeheartedly.
  • Laughter: Laugh at least thirty times a day. Props encouraged.
  • Connection: Use your Joy Diet skills to interact with someone who matters to you.
  • Feasting: Enjoy at least three square feasts a day, with or without food.

It’s easy to see how following these tips would lead one to embrace and enjoy life in a way that encourages ideal health.
The laughter diet seemed like it could be right up our alley, but most of what I found online focused on how many calories laughter burned.  Which kind of misses the point for conscious creators.  (I wouldn’t be surprised if laughter was an effective weight loss aid, but more from the standpoint of the alignment it leads us to rather than stomach muscles engaged.)
For a minute it seemed like the Sex Diet could be a possible contender as well (focusing on orgasmic bliss – how could that not be effective?), but results are mixed on that one.
What do you think – have you found any “diets” that operate in conjunction with conscious creation?
(And big thanks to everyone for sharing your suggestions in the comments!)

LOA Style Insurance

law of attraction style insuranceWhat’s the best health insurance a person can get?
That’s hands down the best insurance for your long term health.
We’d be smart to focus a little less on choosing the right plan or on making enough to cover  premiums, and instead focus more on whatever brings us joy.
Happiness is good for your body, good for your bank account, good for your relationships, good for your soul.
Joy is the vibration that ensures you’re attracting more things and experiences you actually want.
I’m not suggesting you cancel your policy today (some would activate fear in doing so) – I’m just saying let’s focus on what makes the biggest difference.
What would make you happy?  Following that is a smart insurance plan.

Exercise in the Vortex

Exercising in the VortexIs your workout working out for you?
If you’re not exercising in the vortex, you’d be better off surfing the couch instead.
Those who are familiar with Abraham’s work know that being “in the vortex” is how we get what we want.
It’s their analogy for alignment, which simply means being vibrationally aligned to what we want.  That’s what allows it to manifest.
When it comes to exercise, a lot of people forget (or don’t even know) how important the alignment piece is.
That means we pay attention to the energy we’re flowing instead of just taking the action.
This is the deal: if you take action before getting your energy lined up, your action is pointless.  A total waste of time.
And we wouldn’t want to waste exercise time, right?!
While it’s true that sometimes taking the action is what creates the alignment, let’s make sure your exercise routine is truly serving you.
How do you know whether you’re exercising in the vortex or not?

  • If it doesn’t feel good to you – before during and after – you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you dread workouts and are only glad when they’re over with, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you don’t enjoy the time spent working out, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you only exercise because you think you “should,” you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you exercise because you’re trying to change something you don’t like about your body, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you feel resentful that you have to exercise to get (or stay) healthy, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you’re working out to get someone off your back, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you’re exercising out of fear of what might happen if you don’t, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.
  • If you work out to avoid feeling guilty, you’re probably not exercising in the vortex.

In short, if you’re not experiencing significant amounts of joy and appreciation in your workouts, you’re going to have a much better time (and results) when you start exercising in the vortex.
So what does that look like?
It’s simple: do what feels good.
Your body will tell you what it wants – that’s a good head start in making sure you’re exercising in the vortex.
If you’re exhausted and have to drag yourself to the gym each week – your body is giving you a sign.  Honor it.  (It may be that what it really needs in order to thrive is a nap!)
If treadmills aren’t your thing, listen for what your body would prefer.  Maybe it’s a dance class or yoga.  Or if your friend keeps dragging you to zumba when you’d rather be in ninja training, do whatever is easiest to enjoy!
Set yourself up for maximum enjoyment by knowing yourself and what your preferred style is: group or solo?  Indoors or outdoors?  Home or public gym?
You can also bring a core value to the gig to ensure a good time.  (Since nature is one of my values, I know that anything I do under the sky, along a creek or among trees is guaranteed enjoyable.)
Ask yourself what would be fun, and let that be what you lead with.
Also, let your body tell you how much and how long it enjoys it.  Sometimes we ruin a perfectly good workout simply by overdoing it.
Set an intention before you start exercising to make sure you’re lined up with what you want.  It could be as short and sweet as “enhance my physical well being.”  Or “enjoy moving my body.”  “Stretch myself physically.”  “Love my body more than ever.”  “Help my body thrive.”  A little intention at the top goes a long way.
Get a hot trainer.  Just sayin’.
Check your “why.”  Why are you exercising in the first place?  Doing it out of a “should” or “supposed to” isn’t the most fabulous energy to bring to the workout.  Plugging into a more powerful reason can turnaround your experience of getting physical.
Let exercise be something you choose, rather than what you force yourself to do it.  It’s hard to enjoy anything that’s a “have to.”
(You might think you would never opt in for exercise if it were really up to you – but you could be surprised.  Once we let it be optional, it’s super easy to hear our bodies call for some sort of movement. And it really can be a good time to “work out” when we follow these vortex guidelines.)
The bottom line is this: the best exercise we could engage is what we would do for fun, not just for results.
If you don’t enjoy it or can’t find a way to, you may as well skip it and find some other way to have a good time.  Because the best way to get whatever we want is to feel good (i.e. get in the vortex)!

Activate: Feelin' Sexy

Vibration Activation: Feeling Sexy!As part of our vibration activation series, this post is designed to help you find your energetic sweet spot for feeling sexy!
If you’re manifesting physical attractiveness or want to feel better about how you look, this is your ticket.
We know this works because whenever we find a way to feel what we want like it’s already here, it cues Universe to make it happen.
One read through should be good for a 17 second vibe activation, and that’s all it takes to make a shift. All you have to do after that is honor inspiration (that is, do what feels good).
Enjoy rockin’ the sexy vibe:

I know what it’s like to feel good about how I look.
I know what it is to walk through the world with confidence, knowing I’m putting my best self forward.
It isn’t something that comes from having a good hair day or wearing the right outfit. It’s something that comes from within; it’s something I choose to be.
In fact, it’s available for me to choose whenever I want it. All I have to do is be who I am and own that I already am – and always will be – rockin’ sexy. Just by virtue of being authentically me! Soul is sexy. Truth is sexy. Knowing it is sexy.
Not because I weigh the “right” amount or wear the makeup perfectly. And certainly not because someone else told me I was.
Sexy comes from being who I am, not something I do.
It can’t be bought or bottled, and I can’t get it from anyone else.
Sexy comes from owning it.
And I am owning it today. I am feelin’ sexy!
