Rudolph and LOA

Rudolph and HerbieOne of my favorite holiday traditions is watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with a cup of hot chocolate by the fire on Christmas Eve.

But it wasn’t until I enjoyed it again  yesterday that I spotted some of its really cool LOA highlights.

If you’re a fan of the show you’ll recall that Rudolph is taught very early on there is something very wrong with him – his bright shiny red nose.

After the other deer reject him because of it, Rudolph hits the road and in his ensuing adventures has several opportunities to blame his nose for his troubles.

Of course, Rudolph can’t see it any other way, because he’s been taught that his shiny nose is wrong.

Which made me wonder what filters we’re seeing life through that are just as ridiculous.  Many of us also carry mistaken beliefs about our own limitations, that might seem to be proven true over and over, but it’s just because the world is just giving back what we’re putting out.

The same way Rudolph’s unworthiness filter kept him from seeing his nose as an asset, sometimes we’re just as blind to our own skills, talents and fortunes when we believe something about us isn’t quite right.

Which is why self-love is such a powerful aligner for successful manifesting!

Another LOA aspect from Rudolph’s story was when he bumps into Hermie the Elf for the first time and asks who he is.

This “misfit” elf answers, “Actually, I am a dentist.”

I smiled with tears.  lol

It was heart soaring to hear Hermie the Elf claim for himself what he really wanted!

(Hermie hated making toys, and dreamed of working on teeth.)

Such a fun show!

But really, spotting the LOA in action in one of my favorite Christmas stories was just an excuse to revel in the joy and to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas – or other happy holiday you’re celebrating – and to raise a glass (or cup of hot cocoa) to enjoying a fabulous final week of 2012!

  • here’s to more self love in 2013, Matt! And Emily, I feel the same about you.
    Nancy!! Seriously – how cute is that??! (And yes, he used to scare me quite a bit, too. Isn’t that hilarious now?)

  • Oh man, Annette, that Bumbles (aka The Abominable Snow Monster) used to scare the !!&@^#^$&%*% out of me as a kid.
    Now I watch it and think he’s ridiculously adorable, with or without teeth! LOL…
    AND don’t look now, but there’s someone who’s figured out how to put him in manicured nails for women!
    Many blessings,

    Oh Jeannette, I just love you! 🙂

    Oh Yeah, def one of my favorites as well! Merry Happy to All.
    Yes, at some point in all of our lives someone tells us that we have a ‘red nose’, or we read about it, or overhear someone talking about it, etc. However, regardless of ‘how’ we internalized it, its the internalization that matters and no matter how much ‘other’ inner work, play, and exploration we can do, I know for me and so many I have worked with Self Love is the #1 focus to help release ‘what others think, say, etc.’ It is such an important practice for me still to this day, and I believe it always will be on some level. Self Love, like any form of ‘true love’ is its own reward. What a great gift to give to ourselves during the Holidays and in 2013! 🙂 ‘Presh!

  • Glad it’s available for anyone to watch, Parul. It’s a classic! lol
    Annette, that was a smiling moment, too. I loved how the “worst” turned out to be something fabulous. Such a good reminder for us when we think we’re staring down our own personal disaster.

    One of my favorite moments from Rudolph is discovering that Bumbles bounce!
