Actors, beer, darts and the Law of Attraction!

November 16, 2008

Last night I returned to my acting roots, Art Sake Studio in Winter Park, Florida, to see there annual show, Play de Luna. Which is written, produced, directed and performed by the actors of A.S.S.

 

This year Play de Luna was composed of 7 one act plays. I loved all of them. The stories, acting and comedy were great! My roommate (Duca) and I met a friend of mine there with her boyfriend. She is a writer and wants to explore more of her creativity and express herself with more than the written word. In eighth grade she was voted most likely to be an actress.

 

Afterwards we walked over to the local watering hole, McRaney’s Tavern for a pint of Harp.

 

After talking about the show and playing a few games of billiards. My friend and her boyfriend left to go to a bonfire party!

 

I stayed to play some darts and chat with some other actor friends of mine, as well as meet some new actors. One of the guys I met last night who was in Play de Luna was playing darts and was not able to hit 17.

 

He was telling the story with lots of conviction. “I can’t hit 17 to save my life. 17 has put a curse on me.” Meanwhile the girl he was playing against was quickly catching up.

 

It’s his turn again. Holding the darts in his hand aiming, concentrating, he throws the dart,  it hits the wall with a thud and drops to the floor.

 

“See, I can’t hit 17! What is my problem?”

 

This sounds like a job for the LAW of ATTRACTION man. I quickly run into the bathroom and put on my LOA necklace calling upon the powers of the universe.

 

I quickly assess the situation and realize he has temporarily hypnotized himself into believing that he can not hit 17.

 

How?

 

By telling himself a story! He is sending out a strong vibration to the universe. He is telling himself a story that is creating his vibration. The LOA is responding to his vibration and giving him everything but 17.

 

I playfully tell him, “Dude, you CAN DO IT. You can hit 17. Come on 17. You did it, way to go, 17 is easy, you rock!”

 

He played along and accepted my offer by repeating a few phrases and making up some of his own. That’s the power I wield when I become LOA man.

 

He was picking up what I was puttin’ down.

 

He steps up again to shoot darts. Concentrates, aims, fires.

 

He misses again!?!?

 

I repeat some new phrases and tell him the new story. “You are a ninja dart master, 17 is easy as pie, you’re the winner.”

 

He steps up again to shoot his darts.

 

He hits 17!!!!

 

Free beer for everyone!

 

It really can be that easy!  When you change your vibration by telling a NEW story and start feeling good about the thing you were previously feeling bad about, you immediately change the results you’re producing.

 

WHAT IS YOUR 17?

 

What limiting story are you telling yourself that you believe is your reality?

 

Is it money, relationships, health?

 

You have to stop telling the story of how it is and start telling the story of how you want it to be.

 

Then you have to start feeling it.

 

The more you tell the new story and start feeling it and believing it, the sooner your vibration changes and the sooner you start experiencing a new reality!

 

It’s a beautiful thing!!!

 

Stay tuned next week for another exciting episode of LAW of ATTRACTION MAN!

He was possessed by the devil!!!

November 16, 2008

Recently after one of my speaking events in Florida, an elderly couple came up to me and thanked me for being funny and inspirational! “Thank you,” I said. “I appreciate your kind words!”

 

During my talk I tell the TUT story of how we used visualization to get TUT off the ground. I remind the audience how important and powerful visualization can be. The catch phrase I use is, “If you can see it, you can be it!”

 

Then I lead the audience through a guided visualization to give them the experience.  The gray haired gentleman told me that he is not able to visualize his dreams. Holding his cane, speaking in a raspy tone of voice, he said,

 

“Andy, every time I close my eyes all I see is black. I am 72 years old and I can’t visualize anymore. Can you help me?”

 

I told the gentleman he was possessed by the devil!

 

“Sir, what you need is an exorcism!”  I said. (Just kidding. I would not tell anybody that, except my mother).

 

I told him that when I close my eyes I, too, see black and so does everyone else. He looked shocked!

 

Interesting how he had created a false belief that something was wrong with him due to his age.

 

I then opened up my hand, holding it out in front of him. He stared at the palm of my hand with a perplexed look! I told him, “With your eyes open, I want you to imagine a red delicious apple in the palm of my hand!”

 

The key word their was imagine. Had I used the word ‘visualize’ his limiting belief would have taken over. Frozen like a popsicle, he stared at my hand for 3 seconds!  He looked up at me and smiled,

 

“Yes, I can see it!”

 

His wife smiled, she was thrilled!

 

I asked him, “How did you do it?”

 

He said, “It was a miracle.”

 

“No, it was your imagination creating the picture following your intention/desire.”

 

I then asked him what type of car he drives?

 

“A Buick.”

 

“What color is it?”

 

“White.”

 

“Can you see it in your mind right now?”

 

“Yes.”

 

The look on his face was priceless.

 

“Now look back into the palm of my hand. Do you see the red apple?”

 

“YES.”

 

“Okay, now I want you to close your eyes and imagine the apple in the palm of my hand.”

 

He opened his eyes after 3 seconds and said, “It’s a miracle, I can see the apple.”

 

I told him not to worry about seeing black and to practice visualizing with his eyes open and closed.

 

He and his wife thanked me again and left with big smiles.

 

Nobody sees perfect pictures in their mind. Think of visualizing as creating an impressionistic painting. The more you do it the better you get and, most importantly, you MUST feel the positive emotions behind your mental pictures! The emotion is the vibration and the Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration. How you feel is how you attract!

 

Now let me ask you, what have you visualized yourself being, doing or having today! Right now, for 68 seconds visualize yourself being the person you want to be.

 

LIFE IS EASY!

It’s 10 times more powerful then gratitude!

November 12, 2008

Did you know that gratitude can increase happiness levels by around 25%. Did you know that a few hours spent writing a gratitude journal over 3 weeks can create an effect that lasts 6 months, if not more. Did you know that cultivating gratitude brings health benefits, such as better quality sleep, a sense of peace that reduces stress and boosts the immune system and my favorite, longer love making.

 

How can a simple emotion like gratitude have such a positive effect on your life?

 

Every thought you think and feel creates a vibration that you are sending out to the universe and the Law of attraction is always responding to your vibration.

 

When you’re vibrating with gratitude the law of attraction is going to respond and bring more circumstances to be grateful for.

 

That is why you have heard it said, “Count your blessings.” Keep a gratitude journal and wear clean underwear! Just kidding, about the journal!

 

Do you want to know what’s 10 times more powerful than gratitude?

 

Here’s a quote from Abraham-Hicks.

“Gratitude is a wonderful emotion. Appreciation is ten times better. Gratitude almost always points you toward the thing you’ve overcome. Appreciation aligns you with the Source within you. They are very different vibrations.”

Think of a past relationship which you now look back on and say, “I am grateful to this person for being a part of my life and the valuable lessons I learned.” But notice you are still carrying some of the pain or suffering? This is what allows you to feel the gratitude.

 

Now think of the same relationship and say, “Looking back I now appreciate our relationship.”  Can you feel the difference when you appreciate them? You’re letting go of all pain and suffering. You totally accept what happened and how it happened and you are at peace with all of it!!! You’re seeing this person and relationship as a gift!

 

My challenge to you is to transform your attitude of gratitude into the vibration of appreciation and put on some clean underwear!

 

I appreciate you reading this post! Now think of three things you appreciate and smile really big because you are sending out some good vibrations to the world!
