An Ode to the Easily-Offended: You Are 100 Percent Responsible for Your Feelings, Whether You Like It or Not

REALITY CHECK: WE AREN’T REALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHER PEOPLE Although I’ve said it many times and in many ways before, I feel that, given recent political developments all around the world and the emotional reaction to them, the following bears repeating: We are only responsible for five things in this world: Our personal thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, and actions. Similarly, we are not responsible, in any way, shape,...

Inspired Action vs. Repose (A Treatise on Joan of Arc and the Manifestation Mistakes She Made)

AN ARC OF INSPIRED ACTION Recently, I watched a documentary on Joan of Arc, hosted by Lucy Lawless of Xena: Warrior Princess and Spartacus fame, which was supposed to be about how a young, 17 to 19 year-old Joan grew to become one of the most famous “warrior women” in history and led France to many victories over the English in the 1400’s. What I took away from the film was something else entirely, and I will get...

How to Embrace Other Peoples’ Hate and Pave Your Way to Prosperity (Manifestation 101)

LEARNING TO LOVE “NEGATIVE” PEOPLE As I’ve observed, most Law of Attraction practitioners and advocates fall into one of two camps. The first believes that any and all “negative” people should be avoided like the plague and that, similarly, we should work hard to repress our own seemingly “negative” emotions or replace them with more “positive” ones. The second believes that...

Are We Focusing Too Much on Our Effects and Not Enough on Our Causes? (Manifestation 101)

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR Do yourself a favor right now and take a good look around you, not just at your physical environment, but at the people, places, things, and circumstances that fill it. I’m talking about your family members, co-workers, friends, and even strangers. I’m talking about the house or building you’re sitting, standing, or lying in, or the public space you’re currently visiting, like a park, a...

How I Won the Lottery…Without Winning the Lottery (A Law of Attraction Success Story)

A LONG TIME AGO, IN A REALITY FAR, FAR AWAY… Five years ago, I couldn’t see a lot of light at the end of my proverbial tunnel. I’d just spent the previous nine-plus years working at dead-end, customer service call center jobs, earning far less than what I felt I deserved, despite having a degree in marketing. On top of that (and perhaps because of it), I was also 30 years old, sleeping on my retired father’s...

The Power of Intention (or a Lack Thereof) in the Manifestation Process

AN UNINTENTIONAL LACK OF INTENTION We hear it everywhere we go—people saying “I’m going to do this” and “I’m going to do that,” but then never getting around to actually doing what they “intend” to do. Some of these people understand Universal Laws such as the Law of Attraction and the Law of Cause and Effect (which you can read all about on my list of The 15 Best Law of Attraction Books...

Not Trusting Your Gut or Listening to Your Intuition Can Cost You a Lot More than Money

AN ORGANIC OPPORTUNITY A couple months ago, I ran into an opportunity to do something I hadn’t really considered doing before and which I’d actually sworn I wouldn’t do, which was to do some part-time work with a local nutrition shop that sells a lot of the things I’m into, namely vitamins, herbs, and minerals, plus organic, all-natural, and gluten-free foods. For the past few years, I’ve been supporting...

How to Identify Limiting Beliefs, Rip Them Out by the Roots, and Replace Them with “Better”

LIMITING BELIEFS RESULT IN LIMITED INCOME Over the past few weeks and months I have picked up on a trend in my life, which has to do with me finding one seemingly great business opportunity after another, earning a decent amount of money from it (or, in some cases, a lot of money) for, say, a few weeks or months, and then watching as the proverbial well runs dry and the money stops coming. Most recently, this happened with a position...

The Universe Abhors a Vacuum, Which is Precisely Why You Should Create One (Manifestation 101)

IF LIFE SUCKS, DON’T JUST “SUCK IT UP”; MAKE THE UNIVERSE DO IT FOR YOU Have you heard the phrase “The Universe abhors a vacuum”? If not, what it implies is that, according to the laws of nature and physics, empty or unfilled spaces are unnatural and that wherever there is a void, the Universe seeks to fill it. Today, I’m here to tell you that this is 100% true. Not only that, I’m also here to...

Don’t Just SEE the Light, BE the Light

A LESSON FOR LIGHTWORKERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD Most of us who are on a spiritual journey are familiar with the phrase “I’ve seen the light”, as in, “the light at the end of the tunnel” or “the light” in general. But what is “the light” exactly, and what “good” does it do us? To be clear, for the purposes of this post, I am not referring to “the light” that...

The Top 20 Children’s Book Charities for American Authors to Donate To

DONATING BOOKS TO CHILDREN ISN’T JUST GOOD FOR THE CHILDREN, IT’S ALSO GREAT FOR YOUR CAREER In December of 2016, I self-published my debt children’s book, Breaking Away: Book One of the Rabylon Series, and one of the very first things I did was look for ways to market it. In doing so, I took advantage of every tool I seemingly had at my disposal—my personal Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Google+ profiles, this...

Understanding The Law of Attraction and Repulsion (Manifestation 101)

I’M AN ASSHOLE. There, I said it. And you know what? I’m not ashamed to admit it, either, because my definition of an “asshole” is probably quite different than yours. You see, whereas most people conflate the term “asshole” with the term “jerk” and probably conjure up images of men cheating on their girlfriends, people cutting in line at the grocery store, or reckless drivers any time they hear the word “asshole”, I don’t,...
