Got a question for you from a regular reader about how to manifest a solution to a lifelong health issue.
Looking forward to your input on this one:
I considered myself a pretty good manifester. My friends and family called me magic. The LOA seemed to always come naturally to me.
But since moving across country for my husband’s new job, my emotional, physical, and spiritual health have suffered. I have a congenital skeletal disease called Klippel-Feil Syndrome, something I’ve struggled with my whole life.
Lately it’s been a huge struggle. I’ve had more nerve, bone, and muscle spasm pain than I’ve ever experienced before. I tried for months to step back into the vortex to manifest a different reality, one where I’m not suffering.
But I’m stuck. I’ve surrendered into taking medications and shifted my focus to manifesting people who can help me. I still feel lost.
So I guess I have two questions:
1. How does the LOA work with congenital health anomalies?
2. How do I sort out this mess, know what I’m resisting, and jump back in the vortex?
What do you guys think on this one? Can a deliberate creator use the law of attraction to uncreate a lifelong health challenge?
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts!
You know how Abraham says that when you shift the vibe you’ll be inspired to new actions?
Here’s a story about that.
This summer I got a new scale.
Isn’t it delightful?!
There are no numbers – just words. Good words, like Perfect, Ravishing, Gorgeous, etc.
It’s like having a magic mirror on the wall tell you how beautiful you are every day. Can you imagine?! It’s fabulous!
Sometimes I stand on it twice a day.
It supports the self-love and it makes me smile. And sometimes giggle out loud.
I love it so much I’ve raved about it on facebook and at GVU. Everyone who comes over has to stand on it. It makes them smile, too. I’ve bought scales for friends so they can experience the same delights.
So you can see I’m really loving this scale that tells me how beautiful I am every day.
Actually, it wasn’t beautiful, it was Sexy. I was weighing in at Sexy very consistently.
Until it started moving towards Attractive. For a while I was part Sexy, part Attractive.
When I would stand on it I’d say out loud, “Let’s see how Sexy you are today, girlfriend.” When it would register closer to Sexy, I’d say, “Ooooh, getting sexier!! You Sexy girl, you!”
And when it would say more Attractive, I’d say, “Oh, you’re getting more Attractive! woo hoo!!”
It literally didn’t matter if it went up, down, or stayed the same – it was all good! You can feel how nice that vibe is, right? Unconditional love for my physical self. Right. It’s a good vibe.
Then I went to Washington D.C. to hang out with my favorite girlfriend, Michele Woodward, for her Revenue Rocks program.
Four days with Michele and those amazing coaches in that fascinating city did something for me. It was like four days of heaven.
Except the kind of heaven where they don’t serve chocolate. Which doesn’t sound right, does it? A heaven without chocolate? But there I was. Loving life without chocolate.
When I got home I noticed I wasn’t indulging in chocolate – or any sugar – the way I used to.
It was kind of weird.
But I respected it. Tastes change, I figured.
And then my scale started moving past Attractive towards Hot.
Which means my new jeans are too big. I even tried shrinking them in the wash. Still too big.
Super interesting, because I’d been manifesting weight loss a couple years ago, before I realized my attachment to results was keeping it from happening. And here with this scale and some other self love practices I got to a place where I loved ‘what is’ no matter what. Sure enough, things started getting even better.
This is exactly what Abe tells us. When the vibe shifts (whether you do it on purpose or not), the inspirations change.
I remember hearing them say when our vibration rises we’ll be drawn to different foods.
At the time I thought, “Well, just tell me what those foods are now!” Maybe I can get there from the other direction, right?
But that doesn’t work. First of all, because vibration drives everything, not action. And second, because the foods we’re each drawn to are potentially different. There isn’t just one “healthy” formula for us all.
So anyway, we know that the actions will match our vibe. Our actions reinforce whatever we’re flowing energetically.
I think that’s why my sweet tooth disappeared.
* * * Here’s why I’m telling this story. * * *
To inspire you to engage this wherever you want to create real change.
Remember how it works: manage your vibe, then follow your inspiration.
Abraham calls it: “Alignment, and then …”
For example, I’ve been playing with a new affirmation lately to manage my money vibe:
“Holy sh*t, I make a lot of money!”
Just like my magic scale did, that thought takes me to a new delightful place. (It’s a big improvement over the usual, “Why am I not making more money?”)
When I hang out in that new delightful place, things are going to change. Some how, some way. They have to.
All I have to do is go along with the changes.
This process works, you guys. Find a way to manage your vibration, and honor whatever inspirations come up after that.
It’s ridiculously simple, isn’t it?!
You know I love to hear stories about how law of attraction works in the real world, so please share your vibe management methods and success stories with us!
As part of our vibration activation series, this post is designed to help manifest a happy medical outcome.
Use it when you want to align yourself to good health and great news from the doctor.
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).
Share your favorite good news from the doctor stories in the comments to give this vibration extra momentum.
Enjoy manifesting good medical news:
I just got the news! What a relief!
It was exactly the results I’d been hoping for. I knew it was a possibility, I was doing my best to focus on it, and it feels so good to see it confirmed in reality!
I’d been trying not to worry about this medical issue, intending that everything’s going to be just fine, imagining hearing the doctor share GOOD NEWS, and after a few nervous moments here and there, I’ve finally got confirmation that indeed, all is well!
Ha ha! What relief! And at the same time, I also feel a little silly that I worried about it at all – since everything turned out to be just fine.
But I’m thrilled to have this experience behind me now, with a renewed appreciation for my good health and good life. And great medical support! So nice to know they’re there when you need them.
I’m so proud of myself for how well I handled this whole situation. I really did a good job with it, all things considered.
And it’s especially nice to have an even stronger optimism in my ability to thrive physically, and to know that I’m aligned with happy results. Yay me!!
This experience has also given me a new commitment to partner with my body, to be more aware of what I’m feeling emotionally, and to take proactive steps to ensure my continued well being. Now I know more than ever that everything’s really going to be just fine – yay!!
Those of you who have great stories to share along these lines, please post in the comments so we can enforce this expectation even more. Thank you!
This guest post from Coach Janette Dalgliesh offers a law of attraction friendly management approach for physical pain. If you know someone who might benefit from it, please pass it along:
We’re familiar with the placebo effect, right? That’s where we believe something is good for us – and it becomes so.
People get better after taking sugar pills, or having ‘fake’ surgery (incision and sutures only).
It’s real and it’s well-documented, to the point where the placebo effect is allowed for in modern scientific research such as drug trials.
Our minds can make physiological changes to our bodies based solely on what we believe. Which is great news for those of us who wish to use mind-body healing!
But do you know about the nocebo effect?
It’s been called placebo’s evil twin, and it’s the ‘dark side’ of this phenomenon.
The nocebo effect occurs when someone tells us something that is counter to healing, and we believe it.
It might be a doctor who unwittingly says “this treatment doesn’t always work…” and that statement gets locked in our minds as “it won’t work FOR ME”.
Or it might be a news story that women at a certain age are thought to have a greater risk of…. well, you get the drift.
How can we use this knowledge to increase healing and reduce pain? As we know, our brain makes a decision to give us the pain experience based on its assessment of risk. Reducing that sense of risk is a good place to start in retraining our brain. And that means reducing our exposure to the nocebo effect.
Here are my top five tips to support healing in the face of physical pain:
1. Stop googling your symptoms! Seriously, stop it right now. There is nothing out there that will reduce your brain’s sense of danger. You already know everything you need to know about your injury or condition…. and probably more!
2. No more TV or radio news. At all. If you need to know something, it will find its way to you. Broadcast media makes its money by having a large audience; and humans LOVE a sensational story full of danger and adventure. Sadly this means most mainstream media only tells the stories that increase the brain’s risk alert systems. So let it go. You don’t need it.
3. Manage your interactions with well-meaning family and friends. Support is wonderful, and that’s what you want more of. You don’t need excessive sympathy (you poor, poor helpless victim) or anyone else’s drama queen energy (OMG look what they did to you….). Get comfortable with saying “I don’t want to talk about that right now”.
4. Manage your interactions with health practitioners. This is YOUR body. Set an intention before every encounter that the meeting will go well; that they will listen and respect your perspective; that you will be happy with the outcome. If you feel your practitioner is not supporting you in the right way, set an intention that the perfect person will come to you easily. NB: I do NOT advocate simply stopping any health treatment you are receiving, or leaving your doctor!
5. Get picky about any support group you join. There are some great support groups around which focus on the positive – sharing good news stories of healing and recovery, sharing ideas about techniques or tools that have worked for them. And there are some which seem full of doom and gloom. Choose one that makes you feel hopeful and optimistic about your situation, and that also allows you to vent and seek support when you need it.
It’s estimated one quarter of adults in the West suffer from persistent or chronic pain; and a significant proportion of those are in pain from an injury which should have healed long ago.

Have you ever met a dog that was living such a good life you wanted to be him?
Love interests have often told me they’d love to be one of my animals, because they’re treated so well.
I was thinking about that yesterday when I spoke with someone whose body I actually felt sorry for.
She was restrictive about her eating; exercising to lose weight (rather than for enjoyment or fitness). And she was judging that wonderful body of hers as not quite worthy of approval.
Who would want to be on the receiving end of that energy or attention?
It got me to wondering if I would want to be MY body.
That was an easy answer, too. My body doesn’t get near the credit she deserves! I’ve been fairly hard on her over the years.
But I’m getting better at hearing what she wants and honoring the messages she sends. Practicing not judging her and remembering that she’s a brilliant operations manager.
So did I know anyone who is really good to their body – the way I am to my animals?
I thought of one woman who treats her body very well, but doesn’t ever eat food for fun. That would kind of suck – you know, like the kid in the neighborhood who never gets to eat candy?
Another friend does a great job of appreciating her physical self, but it’s not top of her priority list. It gets sacrificed for long hours at work and family needs.
Another woman I know inspires me about how she doesn’t require or desire her body to be any different than it is. What a breath of fresh air!
How about a super star celebrity known for her beautiful body? Surely SHE has to take such great care of her body, it only gets good energy directed at it? But what some of them go through to be the right size for certain gigs – I’ll pass.
What about an Olympic athlete? They would only do what’s healthy for their bodies! But when I think of their workouts – years devoted to becoming the physical best? That doesn’t sound like we’d be having much fun.
Is it just me, or are instances of high-vibing body love (especially among women) somewhat rare?
I’m sharing this here because deliberate creators know that we get what we vibrate and that Universe can only match what we send.
So in whatever way we may be judging, criticizing, punishing, or deeming ourselves (including our physical selves) unworthy, we’re being that energy and thus attracting more of the same.
My question to you is: what is it like to be your body?
If this were a friend, would she still BE your friend the way you treat her? Do you neglect her, or take her for granted? Are you always wanting her to be different or better in some way?
Or do you love her unconditionally? Drench her in lots of loving thoughts and kind gestures? Do you know how important she is to you, and treat her that way?
It’s worth considering, since Universe can only be as to us as we are to ourselves. And that includes how we are to our PHYSICAL selves.
I’ll know I’ve nailed it when I’m as good to my body as I am to my animals. That is, when I’m attentive, listening, responsive, loving, enjoying, appreciating, etc.
Are you paying attention about the vibes you’re sending your body?
