Ask and It is Given – the Law of Attraction

Ask and It is Given – the Law of Attraction

A bunch of you have been seeing me post pictures on Instagram of my cup of tea and latest law of attraction book asking for the deets.

Ask and It is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Is AMAZE.

This was an amazing law of attraction book that I highly recommend to everyone. Whether you are new to the idea of the law of attraction, or if you are looking for ways to implement the law of attraction into your lifestyle practice, this book is for you.

We all dream and wish of beer things for our lives. This month, I grabbed Ask and It is Given because lately I’ve been wanting to educate myself a bit more on manifesting my desires. I did a lot of research in picking the best law of attraction book (since I have read a bunch of them in the past) and decided this one was the best choice.

The Law Of Attraction Book

When I saw Ask and It is Given at the book store, I opened it up, read a sentence or two, and said “Ah Ha! This is it! This is the game changer!” and it was.

This law of attraction book breaks down the simple steps of how to actually practice the law of attraction. The language is simple, easy to understand and very practical.

Basically, it makes so much sense.

Ask and It is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks was a great read. It made me understand the concepts of manifesting your desires. But it made me understand it more than any other law of attraction book I have read.

Esther and Jerry Hicks explain how your mindset basically effects every big decision you make in your life. And if you aren’t ready to let in the things you want, even if you want them, they won’t come.

What this Book Did For Me

This law attraction book did three amazing things for me.

It made me realize that delays are not denials. Just because things do not happen or create in the physical world the minute I dream them up and imagine them, doesn’t mean that they are never going to happen. Things take time to manifest. There’s a great analogy in Ask and it is Given on this topic-  Driving a Car. When you take a trip from California to Arizona, for example, you don’t stop half way and give up because it is “taking too long,” right? You know exactly what direction you are headed in and you keep pushing along because you know that is where you want to end up. So why should our lives be any different? Why should we give up on certain things when we are half way down the path just to return back to where we started? That makes no sense. Ultimately, we know this: As long as we are pointed in the direction we are wanting to go, we will get there.

It helped me understand goal setting more clearly.  You will never reach your Goals because your goals keep changing. This was huge for me. In the past when I set certain goals I would reach them, feel happy and then just go back to my old ways. “Okay great I did it!” I would say. Whether it was for my career, for weight-loss, for saving money. I would reach a goal ,and then I gave myself reason to just give up my focus. But this book showed me that if you live life thinking there is some sort of end goal for your dreams or life, you aren’t really living. And you will never feel fulfilled. Now I know when I set goals I need to think ahead. We are creatures of growth and change and we are always asking the universe for more.. and we should!

Practicing the Law of Attraction

The book actually teaches you how to practice the law of attraction. This book wasn’t just easy to understand. It actually laid out the fundamental practices for retraining your brain to think differently. It shows you how to be more open, and more positive. I loved part two of the book. It is filled with ideas for retraining your brain and actually living the law of attraction.

The Law of Attraction – And Getting What You Want In Life

The Law of Attraction – And Getting What You Want In Life

When I was working at CBS, I had the pleasure of working with a few negative nancys from time to time (sarcasm) … but there was this one worker in-particular  who always had something negative to say. Lets just call him Gill. Gill was the biggest grumpiest guy I ever met. No matter what he was always complaining about life, work, how much things sucked and how bad things always happened to him. Guess this guy never heard of the Law of Attraction. Because bad things just kept on happening.. and Grumpy Gill kept on complaining about it. I wanted to shake him, don’t get me wrong. How could someone be so negative, complain about every single thing, and actually believe that life would get better and things would change? Well… maybe he didn’t believe it.. maybe he just liked to complain… but still.. had he taken a few courses or read a few books on the Law of Attraction, I guarantee his life would be different. Less complaining, and more happiness.

The Law of Attraction can completely change your life. Basically the Law of Attraction boils down to one Idea: We Attract What we Think About. It sounds ridiculous — the idea that believing something will just magically have it manifest in your life, but the truth his that thoughts are things — and when you think positive thoughts, positive things tend to happen. It’s a chain reaction of awesomeness.

thelawofattraction

I’m a firm believer in the Law of Attraction and have definitely applied it to my own life over the last few years. By making simple changes to how we think, we can drastically improve the quality of our lives. Whether or not we get everything we want just by believing we will is irrelevant… the point is that if you want more greatness and awesome things in your life, you should think positively about the possibilities — it can happen! It will happen ! If you think positive!

Simple Tips for Applying The Law of Attraction to Your Life

1. Remove Can’t and No from Your Vocabulary: When You stop and think about it – How many times have you told yourself you can’t accomplish something? How many times have you said something won’t happen for you? When you start telling yourself that you can’t accomplish things or you don’t have the ability to reach goals, you know what happens? You don’t reach them! Our minds are incredibly powerful, and if you are constantly thinking of the reasons why things WONT happen, well you are just setting yourself up for failure and disappointment.

2. Stop Obsessing Over the Bad Things That Happen: When Something goes wrong it sucks.. don’t get me wrong. But if you harp on it and obsess over it, over analyzing every little part of the negative experience, you will only get more negative experiences in your life. Instead of harping on that fight you had with your friend or the bill that went to “overdue” status, why not just think about all of the other amazing things you got going on for yourself? Obsessing over the bad negative parts of life only makes more negative things happen… it’s kind of like you are fueling the fire of disasters…  A snow ball effect if you will. This is why so many people say that once one bad thing happens a bunch of other bad things happen. It’s kind of where the expression “got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning” came from.. because once you start the day off in a bad state, it’s pretty clear that other bad things will start happening… it’s because of your mindset.. So Change it up. When something bad happens, embrace it, experience it, and then move on… you’ll open the door to amazing positive possibilities.

3. Stop Predicting Negative Things: You ever feel worried to open your mailbox because you only expect more bills? Do you ever cringe at the thought of your performance review or your college grades at the end of the semester? You are sitting there predicting negative things and  hoping for positive things.. totally confusing to the universe. Why not, instead, focus on the possibilities of great things happening.. and then they will come to you!

4. Meditate and Invision What You Want: One of the best ways to create the life you deserve is to spend a few minutes every day imagining what it is you want for your life.. you can do this by closing your eyes and listening to guided meditation or calming music each day… or you can make a vision board full of pictures of all the things you want to accomplish. Close your eyes and just imagine all the feelings associated with the things you want. Pretend you have everything you want in the world and imagine what that feels like. The best thing you can do is put those feelings into words and writing it down. Writing down exactly how you feel once you accomplish your goals is a great way to only push you forward towards them…. which is why… step number five is….

5. Take Action Towards The Positive:  Jen Sincero who wrote You Are A Badasss puts it perfectly in her book when she talks about the Law of Attraction… just because your goal is to be at a pool party with President Obama, doesn’t mean you should go to the store grab a swimsuit and show up at the White House just because you have faith in the Law of Attraction. But what it does mean is that you should take healthy positive steps to reach that crazy awesome goal. If your goal is to save up enough money to buy your dream car, for example, go to the dealer, test drive it, sit in it, feel it, take home a pamphlet and then come up with a savings strategy to reach your goal. If you dream of owning a successful company go make an appointment with a bank and start asking questions. The best thing you can do is take a massive action in the moment you make a decision… the Law of Attraction will sure guide you along the way, but by taking small steps to reach your goal, you will certainly get there faster.

Here are a few books I totally Recommend if You Are Interested in learning more about the Law of Attraction. GO grab one. They are awesome.

Unleash the Power Within – Can You?

Unleash the Power Within – Can You?

The last Few days have been a crazy draining and exhausting experience. Yet — They were LIFE changing. You may laugh at me when I write this, but I changed my life. And it didn’t happen in three years, it happened in an instant. It happened at Tony Robbins’ Amazing Seminar: Unleash the Power Within.

unleashthepowerwithin

I packed my bags and headed out to beautiful Palm Beach Florida. The Seminar was three days, and while I really wasn’t 100 percent a believer in Tony Robbins and his practices, I can say without a doubt that they are amazing. He has literally changed my life in such a short amount of time.

What is Perfection Unleash the power within

Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within

Tony Robbins has been inspiring change and improving people’s lives for decades. I first heard about Tony when I was going through my own really difficult time in life and needed some help. I found his book in the self improvement section of the library and read it. It certainly made a difference.

But after a few times of rereading the same stuff… I still felt like something was missing.. I felt like I was on the brink of a major breakthrough and just decided it was about time I invested in my future. So I signed up for his seminar Unleash the Power Within.

Unleash the Power Within What is Perfection

Tickets were expensive. General Admission is around 800 bucks, and the closer you want to be to the stage, the more you pay. Diamond level, for example, was over 2,000 dollars.

I went for the VIP section, which was a bit cheaper, and ran me about $1200. I can say without a doubt it was worth it.

If you listened to any of Tony Robbins’ tapes or if you have read his book and are still looking for more, I would not shy away from making the leap and going to the seminar. Everything he talks about, every exercise you participate in, is all for a purpose. It may seem like it would be hard to really feel inspired or connected in a room full of 9,000 people (yes 9,000 people attended) but I swear, it was like everything he said was in some way connected to my life. I came home with this amazing new perspective on life, this amazing new drive for going after my goals, and this overall relaxing sense of calm inside me.

Unleash the power within Pitbull What is Perfection

Pitbull Performed.. which was awesome! … and also a big surprise. I don’t think things like that happen often. But Robbins’ recently coached Pitbull and so he came to speak to us a bit and also to perform. It definitely got the crowd rilled up!

Unleash the power with in what is perfection

The experience was amazing for me. I realized so much about myself in just a short amount of time. Don’t get me wrong, I love inspiring people to grow and improve their lives here on Whatisperfection.com , but truthfully, I could never find happiness and joy in my own life if I didn’t take the time to care for myself too. Tony Robbins’ unleash the power within was really the game changer I needed. I realized I wasn’t living my life the way it truly deserved to be lived. I could be happier, so much more fulfilled, and full of more love and confidence — Unleash the Power Within gave me the tools I needed to succeed and thrive going forward.

unleash the power within what is perfection

My advice to you in this post, it doesn’t have to be Tony Robbins or HIs Unleash the Power Within seminar — but if you have a role model, or a mentor — someone you look up to or admire or whose books you love to read — go seek them out. Find out if they are speaking somewhere or if they have seminar engagements. Finding your role models and keeping them in your life will allow you to remain on your path — whatever your path is.

I can’t wait t write more about my amazing experience and share with you everything I have learned. For now though, I will say this… no matter what you do, no matter who you are:

Live with Passion!

The 3 Books About Vegan Diets That Changed My Life

The 3 Books About Vegan Diets That Changed My Life

I’m no crazy Vegan Activist. But ask me about meat products, where they come from and what they do to our bodies and I simply will not shut up. I am a firm believer that animal protein is really no good for us. Dairy is deadly. And The Food and Ag. institutions of this country are as messed up A.F. When It comes to living a Vegan lifestyle, I am not always perfect. I slip up. I haven’t exactly gotten my diet down pat where I am no longer longing for fatty foods during that time of the month…. but alas … what can you do. When I was interested in the art of living vegan, I started reading up on diet trends and educating myself on the food industry… then I found these books about Vegan diets that completely changed my life. I will share them in the order I read them…. I swear.. they changed my life.

The Books About Vegan Diets You Have to Read

Books About Vegan Diet What is Perfection

 Skinny Bitch: The first time I saw this book I was in Catholic high school… a girl on my bus was reading it. I was like WAAAAAAA CURSE WORDS!!!! But years later, when I was thinking about becoming a Vegan, i picked it up. The book was quick and easy to read but it really spoke to me. At first, I got a kick out of all the cursing and relaxed language of the writer… but as I kept reading I was SHOCKED. The book is kind of like a collection of different sourced information on why meat is bad for your body, how animals are treated and how completely F-ed the Food industry is. It was a great first start and I read it in  like a day… but it really got me thinking about what I was doing to my body.

Books About Vegan Diets and Animal Treatment – Slaughterhouse: In Skinny Bitch, one of the sources they sited was Slaughterhouse by Gail A. Eisnitz. This is exactly what you think it is: The book about how animals are treated. I was instantly hooked on the idea that this one would be my second read about vegan diets… I was dying to know more details on what actually happens. Note: I had a really hard time finding this one in the bookstore. You have to order it online. (all the books are linked at the bottom of this post) …This book was so so emotionally compelling for me. The writer went undercover to a bunch of different slaughterhouses in the U.S. and documented what she saw in this book. She interviews a lot of workers too.. I was shocked. The book was really hard to read but nothing ever moved me as much as this text did. I remember a few weeks into reading it my mom made a turkey dinner… and I couldn’t eat it. All I could think about was the book I had just read. I didn’t eat any animal products for over a year after reading this one.

Books About Vegan Diets  and the Industry: The Food Revolution: This one was long.. no doubt. But it was really very interesting to read. John Robbins was going to be an heir to the Baskin Robbins empire… but he turned it all down, became a vegan and wrote this book. I mean.. that ALONE should drive you to want to read it. He is a great writer — and in detail, talks a ton about the food industry and how we are led to believe what the government wants us to based on their financial gain. We think things are good for us because the government tells us.. but they tell us because … well… they are making tons of money off of it.

There are a ton more books on the Vegan diet that I would love to share.. but I want to hear from you! What Books About Being Vegan have you read? Are you interested in being a vegan but hold back? What’s the reason? I want to hear!
