The Basics of Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction is not a new phenomena. We’ve been bombarded with phrases such as:
Even those not born into the Law of Attraction, know its value. Here are some of my favorite quotes from NON Law of Attractioners:
Let me repeat, The Law of Attraction is not a new phenomena.
The sharing of quotes could be an entire site or blog post, but they may offer none or little value unless you can better understand the essence behind it all. Have you ever thought anything and it manifested?
- It could have been a friend/family member calling
- It could have been being fired from a job
- It could have been the manifestation of your true love
- It could have been having someone talk bad about you
- It could have been...
Your thoughts hold great power. Any time our minds wander to a situation; whether it be real or imagined or wishful thinking, we are setting in motion its existence. Whether it is to wallow in the past and the shoulda’s, woulda’s and coulda’s, it doesn’t matter. We get stuck in that energy and perpetuate those kinds of situations continuing and life unfortunately will never get better.
In fact that line of thinking has been known to bring on frowns, tears, copious amounts of overeating, frustration, yelling and ultimately illness and/or isolation. True there is another saying, misery loves company. Notice I am not giving it power by highlighting or bolding or centering it; it was bad enough for it to go in italics. it may be fun to slam, wallow together and play the Jealousy Game with others as compatriots. We’ve all done it at some point.
However, I realized it got me nowhere. Absolutely NOWHERE. How was this ascertained? I never, repeat NEVER, walked away from those conversations feeling uplifted. In fact, the opposite happened! I felt depleted!
Any communication that was shared was stuck in the same sort of wallowing. The cast of characters may have changed depending on the group, the topics may have changed, but wallowing it was. We might as well have sung the old children's diddie ~ Oh Woe is me, nobody loves me, everybody hates me, guess I’ll go eat worms.
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Guess I'll go eat worms!
Big fat juicy ones
Eensie weensy squeensy ones
and so on...
Not very productive, wouldn’t you say? Funny, temporarily, but never empowering.
Wallow vs. ?
At that point, and honestly couldn’t tell you when it happened, it just did. I broke the record and decided, actively decided NO MORE. If I wanted a life filled with more happiness, love, joy, wealth, true friends (who would support me and call me on the carpet when needed), the Wallow Recording had to go.
It was an active choice. A hard choice. A choice I second guessed a few times, but stuck with.
Wallowing Not Allowed became a personal motto. I would go and be sad when my grandparents died. I would be sad when my dad went to the hospital with his own Elephant Adventure (heart attack). I would be sad when this or that would occur. BUT I would not stay there and begin to own it or better put I would not allow it to own me.
I refused to allow wallowing to BEcome part of me. The choice to BE was stronger.
I would instead acknowledge that this required my attention. Certainly I miss my grandparents on a regular basis. When we retell as story, I see a photo of them in my office, when we watch the ants play baseball (another family pastime), but I realize those are memories that still serve me well. I have chosen to hold onto those that bring me joy and hold my loved ones in my heart. While I may not be able to pick up the phone and chat away with them, I can and still do pretty much daily.
What do you chose?
Choices are presented and made through each and every day. This ought to come as no surprise to you.
- A choice to be moody or uplifted.
- A choice to BE or scattered.
- A choice to exercise or not.
- A choice to put that oreo in your mouth or that apple. Both crunchy, but ... maybe I’ll chose BOTH! ;)
An opportunity to make a choice varies from moment to moment and every situation for which we are presented. The Gang, the angels, has asked me to write about this very thing and their insistence has come from social media posts to clients AND customers urging me to write. So here goes.
Basic Philosophy of Your Thoughts Become Reality
Think about what kinds of choices you have made in the past that didn’t serve you well. Can you see how your thoughts created it? Even if you can only think of one incident, that is enough to get the ball rolling. Likewise, can you think of an event that occurred that you dwelt upon, the juicy kind of event? Can you see see how you also created that event?
If not, try this one on:
Have you ever noticed on the days you wake up refreshed and excited about life that so much seems to go your way?
On those days I am soooo tapped in, turned on, that nothing gets in my way. Clients come out of the woodwork, requests for shows are offered and I really do write prose that is easily understood and absorbed. I have energy out the wazoo, akin to five cappuccinos and the world is my oyster and have pearls to prove it. Everything was truly done with ease, joy and love. NO effort needed.
On the flip side of the coin, have you noticed on those days when you wake up that it feels like a dark cloud is hanging over you and gets drearier as the day progresses?
On those days, it's almost best to set restart, pull the covers over your head and zip the mouth shut for whatever comes out is misunderstood. You think folks are cursing you left and right. The world is out to get you and you have proof and names have been taken! On those days, have you ever noticed that you are also drained by day's end? It's exhausting to keep putting on the Brave Face, or Warrior Face or Sad Face. Exhausting I tell you!
In both scenarios we are supported in our thoughts; names, rank and serial numbers were provided. Actions to support our beliefs absorbed. In other words, we were validated no matter what we thought.
Hmmm... no matter what we thought, we were validated.
To BE vs. Not to BE… that is the question
Perhaps Shakespeare had it right all along.
It's always easier to BE. For in that essence of BEing you allow. When BEing, you are open to receiving all that is truly desired; wealth, love, joy, health, friends and more. For this big shift in internal shifting, I call upon Angel Uriel, The Angel of Safety. He reminds of this very thing; it is safe for me to BE me.
BEing is a State of MEing. That’s a new phrase! In essence the State of Meing is when you are Just. BEing. Yourself. It really is easy to maintain. However, it is the road less travelled getting to that state. It may not be easy, depending on how much you connect with non-BEing.
No matter what one says, all yearn to BE. They may call it whatever phrase or adjective that pops in, but all yearn to BE. The essence that has you shining like a rock star. The essence that has folks wondering what you do to glow like that. The essence that has life flowing for so much comes to you effortlessly.
I really can’t enforce this enough, but when you ARE BEing, no effort is needed.
- You have nothing to prove.
- You have nothing to apologize for.
- You can say YES and mean it.
- You can say NO and mean it.
You have chosen YOU.
When you chose you, your entire essence shifts. When you put YOU first, the facades that have been put up in order to get that giggle, be liked (or loved) begin to crumble. True you may be tired for a while; you’ve kept energy up for a very long time in order to attract that unsavory attention (while thinking it was a positive thing) while at the same time your soul was doing battle to keep that unsavory nonsense away as much as possible.
Once you consciously chose YOU, your terminology, inner and outer, begins to shift. The world does become a bit brighter. You find yourself waking up happier.
In fact, the angels wish to pass along this beautiful ritual for you to add each and every morning:
Upon awakening, without fail, connect with yourself.
Place your hands over your heart.
Feel that beautiful organ beat to its own drummer. It does nothing to impress another, it just does it own thing, it does what it came here to do. Feel it giving back to you every moment of your entire life.
Give gratitude for its existence.
Stay in repose and this loving connection for as little as five minutes. Let’s face it, it usually takes at least that long to wake up anyway, so this is a doable activity that can easily fit in your very busy schedule.
Why bother doing this?
Simply by giving gratitude for your beating heart, your day starts off with the energy of gratitude.
The Essence of Gratitude
Who knows, that gratitude may then seep into other areas of your life and you may find yourself being grateful for the roof over your head, the kitten snuggles, the sun or rain or snow (for each has its own innate beauty) and the list of gratitude could have you late for work! There are truly so many things, events, people, furpeople to be grateful for. You just may find yourself whistling as you go about your day you are BEcoming so happy!
This is the Law of Attraction as its very core. Gratitude begets more to enter to be grateful for.
I look forward to reading your insights below and feel free to share with your friends and family!
We've another Full Moon approaching in a few days... this one is in Virgo.
As many of you are aware, astrology makes my hair hurt. I know I'm an Aries, but please don't ask what the sun or moon were doing at the time of my arrival let alone what was conjuncting ....
Having said that, The Gang told me to look up Virgo traits (very helpful since I have LOADS of Virgo folks in my life) and to no surprise perfectionism is one of the key terms.
Your hidden, or not so hidden, perfectionist monster may be rearing its head in the coming days, if it hasn't already. This is prime time to sit back and observe. Luckily for all, the full moon is on Sunday when most of us are off from the work force. This will allow plenty of time to process, dwell and explore our inner Mary Poppins Syndrome.
You see, Mary Poppins is one of my heroes. Has been since a child with my father threatening to break the record since I played it morning, noon and well into the night. In fact Angel Chatter is sponsoring a viewing of this movie in a couple of weeks at our local island theatre. THAT'S how much I love this movie.
But yet not. You see Mary Poppins, my hero, is only PRACTICALLY perfect. She is not even perfect!
Nope, not even the goddess of all things
is perfect. Neither are you. Make it easy on yourself by not trying to be. Observe when that side of you emerges and how it makes you feel. Typically it is far from empowering. It's often feels quite belittling with phrases creeping in that convey the message of what you just created well sucks. Remember, pobody is nerfect... YOU are gloriously perfectly imperfect.
Therefore, everything that every human creates is imperfect. Everything we create can be improved upon. However, it's knowing when it is time to pull back and knowing the time to release it to the world at large for it is as perfect as it can be... for now. It's empowering to realize this, more than you may understand.
I chatted with The Gang about this and asked who wanted to step forward to remind us of this fact. Shamael came barreling forward in a matter of seconds. Shamael, the Angel of Harmony. Taking it easy. Going with the flow. The Art of Allowing Self to Receive.
Chat with Shamael to garner ideas of how you may, ahem, perfect the Art of Allowing. I know I'll be lighting his candle in just a few moments with this energy in mind.
Please leave your comments below, it helps others to find us! Thank you from my heart to yours.

As I too grow and learn I realize on a daily basis how fortunate I am to have such a strong support network.
That includes you.
If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing. Even if you only read these posts and leave a message, it encourages me. As we all grow on our individual path, we gather to us a loving community. A community that is always there, no matter what. A community that stands strong as individuals and stronger as a unit.
What kind of community have you gathered to you? If those around you don't cheer you on, offer a shoulder and even periodically call you on the carpet for not following through, then those my Dear Chatterer really aren't your peeps.
Those are what I call 'The Stand Ins' They are simply standing there watching. No real engagement. No real support. No real... well anything. Time to pull back a bit and allow room for true friends to enter.
Not sure how to go about this? Chat with Uriel; The Angel of Safety. Use his 'famous' Askfirmation -
Why is it safe for me to be me?
If you aren't showing up in your authentic yumminess, how can you attract those who really support you?
No worries, this big change most likely won't happen overnight, unless of course you are FULLY aware of these Stand Ins, like I was. YEARS ago, I had a bunch of friends, lovely women really, but deep down I knew they weren't my peeps. They would literally disregard the topics that were important to me and would often say 'There she goes again.' Insert eye rolls here please, very appropriate.
Well I knew they weren't true friends, but I didn't have a better offer. I was getting kind of miserable to be honest. I wasn't following my dreams and at that point I had just a mere inkling of what those dreams entailed. Sooooooo......
The Gang took the matter into their own wings. All four of those friends dumped me in the course of two weeks.
I carried on, went into the 'depths of my despair' (Anne of Green Gables fan here) and could have won an Oscar.
For one year.
Yes one year. However, in that year I did tremendous soul searching. I began to look beyond and get excited about other things that mattered to ME; energy healing, crystals, and of course angels... they weren't yet The Gang.
Am I glad I did! By the time we left the neighborhood, I thanked one of them in person. Deep down she understood. The kicking out of the nest was one of the best things that ever happened to me; unsavory as it was.
However, if you don't wish such a heart ripping experience, and yet feel akin to how I did, it may be time to start being a bit more proactive in YOUR dreams. A bit more proactive in coming out of the closet to shine your light, fly your freak flag and simply BE YOU.
You deserve a GREAT support group no matter where you and they live. Mine are literally scattered around the world. Family in Europe, Florida, California and more. Chatterers who have become family. I grin and shout HURRAH at your success ... that's no lip service; it's real. It's who I am.
Who are you?

Tom Brady February 17 2017
What a shift, an Angel Goddess chatting football? Kinda sorta
Thanks to my Honey, I got an article about the Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady, with the headline:
I'm Not Going to Give Away My Power
The article goes on about empowerment and allowing others, or not, to take yours.
"I don't want to give my power away to other people by letting my own emotions be subjected to what their thoughts or opinions are. If someone calls me something, that's their problem. It's not my problem. I'm not going to give away my power."
On the flip side of that scenario:
"You start giving your power away to other people, it's a tough life."
'Nuf said? If you have been with me for a bit, I've used words and phrases very similar to this. I encourage you to be YOU. Fly that Freak Flag HIGH! Remember, we are ALL human and therefore gloriously imperfect. All attack life from a different perspective as a result of life experiences. When others call us names, it most typically is through jealousy, insecurity and certainly fear. Unfortunately I've had my share and I'm sure you have had as well. That's just part of our human adventure. Learning to BE.
Haven't we all succumbed to what other's thought of us? Especially from those we held in high regard? Especially when those thoughts may have given us permission to not go after our very dreams because deep down we were a bit afraid ourselves? Things like, 'how are you going to make money doing that?' or the classic as it pertains to me, 'You chat with angels? (silence) Oh my look at the time, gotta run. Nice chatting with you.' While not derogatory, it certainly isn't an empowering statement and gave me permission for many a year to stay hidden.
We all have fallen prey to allowing other's thoughts to dictate what we do or don't do. I mean it took me YEARS to come out of the closet and proudly state what I do and don't care much what others think about it any more. Why? Because I LOVE what I do; working with clients, creating and all through the help of The Gang.
On the other hand, have you ever had an AHA Moment and not allowed those words to take hold? You kinda got tired of hiding and being submissive? You kinda got fed up with doing what's expected and being put in a box to make others comfortable. You kinda knew it wasn't real.
You quietly or loudly said ENOUGH! At that moment, you stood taller and did what needed to be done for you with greater conviction. You took that first step no matter how scary it felt. You started to share with others your dream. The circle may have been small at the onset, but grew as your inner circle said, 'It's about time!' Didn't you feel all the better for it afterwards? Didn't your smile expand ten-fold.
Of course it did. That is just one reminder of a time gone by when you stood in your power. It's time for the Big Stand In Your Power Moment.
NOW is that time more than ever. NOW is the time to FLY high. NOW is the time for you to SHINE. NOW is the time for you to BE YOU. It's a BIG deal to dance your dance. A very big deal, but it's time Chatterer. Why the urgency? Well truth be told, we're not getting any younger. Do you wish to live life longer at being unhappy or happy?
I'll choose happy every single time.
Why not chat with Archangel Uriel, The Angel of Safety. He will help to shine a variety of ways you can step more firmly into your power with greater conviction and joy. Also use the Askfirmation courtesy of him:
Why is it safe for me to be me?
and remember to allow The Gang to answer you in magical and yet profound ways. This is just one of many steps that you will take to reclaim YOU.
Welcome Home to you.
