coming attractions …

vibration.jpgTuesday’s ezine about “The Trick to Change” (releasing resistance) struck a chord with readers – I got more responses than ever!

You made it clear I’m not the only one who considers letting go of resistance a challenging practice.  By asking for more solutions about how to release the need for change, you showed me it’s more of a hangup for folks than I realized.
Although that shouldn’t surprise me, as I recently found myself  pushing against.
I know firsthand how easy it is to slip into resistance even when we know better.
Take my e-book.  It’s been a familiar repeat on my monthly intention list while I waited for “feel good” inspiration to fuel the project.
Inspiration finally hit after flying to Oprah’s (you guys know that fiasco) to talk about my favorite manifesting technique and even more so since Jack Canfield’s “Life Lessons for Mastering the Law of Attraction” included my story about it. 
It gave me huge enthusiasm for writing this e-book once and for all!
Which turns out was the easy part.
My frustration started when I didn’t know what to do next to get it in your hands.  (Editing, formatting, a cover, launching, delivery, shopping carts – not my cup of tea!) 
So I hired four – count ’em, FOUR – different professionals to do the work for me.
But hiring it out while still flowing frustration about how long it’s taking apparently isn’t a formula for success.  (Were you way ahead of me on that one?)
With each person I hired, we stalled for one reason or another.  Lots of wheel spinning; little progress.  (And these are highly qualified people!)
Eventually I realized it wasn’t them, it was me.
Or rather, my vibe.
My energy wasn’t lined up – I was still in the frustrated vibe, aka Resistance City.  (Anything that doesn’t feel good is resistance.) 
So here’s how I got the energy lined up (and how you can, too):

  • I made peace that it’s taken this long and reminded myself everything happens in perfect timing. 
  • I remembered my feel good isn’t dependent on the status of this project and that circumstances don’t dictate how I feel – I DO.
  • I laughed at my ability to get my panties in a twist over a fun little e-book.
  • I loved that I was something of a slow learner on this one.  (No beating Self up for anything!)
  • I appreciated this would make a great example for clients of what NOT to do. 

With that negative energy cleared up, it was then easy to connect with good thoughts about having the e-book done and delivered, how proud I was of it, and knowing it would inspire and support you in your successful manifestations.
Guess what happened next?
You know how this works . . .
. . .  the next day an old friend, who just happened to be a technical geek/ marketing guru guy emailed me “out of the blue.”  
(Right – “out of the blue” doesn’t happen – that was my vibrational escrow flowing in through my newly opened door!)
We had a pleasant brief and friendly conversation and just like that I have a new technical partner who is making it super easy to let it all happen. !!
Sweet, huh?
In fact, as of Thursday morning (May 29th), everything will be in place to offer you this beautiful e-book that answers every question I’ve ever been asked about my favorite and least well known manifesting technique.
Who loves this Universe?!
Look for a post on Thursday with a link to pick up your copy.  It offers a powerful and original solution to releasing resistance – and as I said, it’s my hands down favorite!
In the meantime, practice releasing your resistance on something not so high stakes.  Expecting yourself to do a 180 on a topic that feels life or death isn’t particularly rewarding.Find something smaller to practice on, and give yourself credit where you deserve it.
And remember you don’t have to get completely resistance free in order to shift energy and start seeing things go your way!  I’m living proof.    😉

    Thanks for the reminder on this one!!!!!! Congrats on your e-book!!!

  • Michaela, I think you already know this one! (The manifesting technique, not the panty twist.) lol
    You know, Michaela, we even have a commercial on tv right now advertising underwear that’s designed to avoid the problem. ha!
    But from now on I’m using Kim’s Aussie phrase “knickers” because it sounds nicer.
    Anyway, thanks for the encouragement, you two!
    This is by no means my “tell everything I’ve learned or experienced about LOA” book – but it is way more helpful than that one would be anyway. 🙂
    Thanks, ladies!

  • Kim Falconer says:

    I can’t wait to read it, Jeannette and what a wonderful post. It makes us feel like we are there, in the wings with you!!! We are!
    And Michaela, in Australia we say “don’t get you knickers in a twist!”
    I’ll leave it to Jeannette to translate.
    Love to everyone!

  • Michaela says:

    Jeannette, I always hoped you would write an ebook some day – great! 🙂 I am looking forward to the big launch on Thursday. Will we learn a little bit more about the “secret” manifesting technique then?
    I also liked how you handled all this, it’s an inspiring example to me. The only thing I don’t quite understand is what “get my panties in a twist” means … 🙂 You Americans have such colorful language!

  • Yeah, Paul – it’s like …
    Thank the lord it’s all perfect so we can give up worrying/wondering whether or not it is! It’s such a pleasant default to remember. 🙂
    Thanks for your kind words – the vibe you’re sending my way feels REAL good!! I owe you one. lol

  • Thanks, Kimberly. I’m looking forward to spending time on your blog!
    Much appreciated that you checked in here. Come again, please! 🙂

  • Paul. says:

    Thank you, Jeannette, for this out-of-the-blue post. It comes at just the right time.
    “I made peace that it’s taken this long and reminded myself everything happens in perfect timing.” Words to live by! They’re going on Post-Its all over the house to remind me.
    And, of course, congratulations on getting the ebook done at the perfect time!

  • Jeannette,
    Congrats on your upcoming ebook! Love your humility about being and expert and still stumbing… So true.
