F*ck The Law of Attraction

This is a response video to a spiritual teacher who said to f*ck the law of attraction. My response addresses what I feel is the biggest inconsistency with those of us who believe in the law of attraction and how we can go about changing it so that we live free.

Physical Workout of the Day:

My Rounds = 5 + 15 Jumping Lunges

Shauna’s Rounds = 4 + 14 Push-Ups

Mental Workout of the Day:

LOVE Meditation

Today’s process will be a practice in loving yourself. Start with your heart on your eyes closed in a comfortable seated position. This is simply because you want to be awake for the majority of this meditation and lying may cause you to fall asleep.

Place your right hand over the center of your chest where your heart is located. Place your left palm facing upward, resting on your lap. Close your eyes and feel the breath move down into your belly as you inhale. As you exhale, feel the belly fall and the rib cage simply depress. After 5-10 breaths, take your attention to where your right hand is on your heart. Focus on the warmth you feel between your hand and your chest. This is going to be your place of focus for the remainder of the meditation.

As you breath, feel the connection between your hand and heart. Affirm to yourself, “my heart is the core of my physical body and the reminder of who I am and why I am here.” This will remain your affirmation. Go as deeply as you wish with this meditation, allowing your hand to almost feel as if it is on fire with the love expressed from your heart. You can remove your hand as soon as you feel that you are finished, do not put a time limit on this meditation, it could be 2 minutes, it could be 20…just go with it.

Physical Workout of the Day:

This workout is done just as the song is sung. On the first day of christmas my true love gave to me 1 40 meter sprint. On the second day of christmas my true love gave to me 2 push presses and 1 40 meter sprint. This workout will continue as such. In total you will have completed 12 rounds and the final round will consist of every exercise listed.

Shauna’s Time = 24:20 (65 lbs, 30 lb KB, 10 lb ball)

My Time = 27:33 (95 lbs, 50 lb KB, 18 lb ball)

Mental Workout of the Day:

Gratitude Meditation

For today’s workout we will start by setting a timer for 15 minutes and finding a comfortable sitting position. Place your hands on your lap with your palms facing upward and close your eyes. Gently, take your awareness to the movement of your breath in and out of your nose. Do not force the breath, but rather let the breath be and let it move you. As you breathe in you will say silently to yourself, “I AM,” and as you breathe out silently say to yourself, “grateful.” Do your best to maintain this mantra for the entirety of the meditation. If thoughts come into your awareness, recognize them and then return your focus to the mantra. You may even begin to change the words and begin replacing “grateful” which is completely okay and a natural process of the meditation.

Physical Workout of the Day:

My Rounds = 6 + 1 K2E (24 inch box)

Shauna’s Rounds = 6 + 6 BBJ (18 inch box)

Spiritual Workout of the Day:

Mantra Meditation

Today’s workout is for aligning with a single pointed mindset through our meditation. The 3 mantras to choose from during this meditation will be “I AM,” “I am Love,” or “I am protected.” For this meditation find a comfortable sitting position or lying position. Set a timer for 15-20 minutes and start it. Uncross all of your limbs and close you eyes. Bring your awareness to your breath and begin feeling the rise and fall of your abdomen, breathing in and out through your nose. Your focus for the first few minutes will be on allowing your breath to move from your chest and into your abdomen. Do not control the depth or speed of your breath, allow it to be, yet simply guide its movement from the chest and move it into the belly. Once the breath has moved into the belly you will begin your mantra. For the first mantra, as you inhale you will say “I” and as you exhale saying “AM.” For the second and/or third mantra, as you inhale you will say ” I am” and as you exhale you will say “Love/protected” depending on which mantra you choose is right for you today. Continue with that pattern until your timer goes off.

Daily Affirmation:

“You have the ability to change your life. You have the ability to change the world. This ability comes from your ability to allow. to allow Love to be your dominant intent.

Ecstatic Dancing

Ecstatic dancing is a mindfulness meditation. Put on your 3 favorite songs, close your eyes, and dance. Move your body with the rhythms of the music.

All you have to allow yourself to do is move and feel free. When the 3 songs are done just stand and feel your feet connected to the ground. Feel the energy of your body connecting you with the energy of the earth, Gaia. Stand there and feel the support of your Mother as long as you like and then you are finished with today’s workout.

THERE IS ONLY A STREAM OF WELL-BEING…

Uncategorized

energetic light body, light being

The past few days I have returned to my roots, so-to-speak, in regards to my spiritual belief patterns. I have been feeling a change occurring and so I began re-reading “Ask and It Is Given” and “The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent” by Esther and Jerry Hicks. In the past few days I remembered my ability to FEEL amazing again. I remembered why the Law of Attraction called so deeply to my soul, and why I found The Teachings of Abraham at such a young age. Today as I meditated it felt as if Abraham was speaking directly to me, inspiring my heart, and reigniting my conscious understand of the amazing power we all innately possess and I want to share that realization with you here…

As I meditated today I began to affirm gently to myself that there is only a Stream of Well-Being. The past few days this has heavily forced its way back into the forefront of my conscious focus. However, today as I gently reminded myself of this fact I was struck with an impulse…

Because there is only a Stream of Well-Being that flows, there can never be the PRESENCE of anything negative in our experiences. There is only a Stream of Well-Being, a stream of health, a stream of abundance, a stream of joy/love/appreciation/enthusiasm/passion. Therefore, since there is only a stream of well-being, when you are experiencing something negative as we would say, there is only the ABSENCE of well-being. This means that there is only the ABSENCE or PRESENCE of what is wanted or desired.

There is only a stream of light…darkness is not the PRESENCE of darkness, but the mere ABSENCE of light. Fear is not the PRESENCE of fear, but the ABSENCE of love. Dis-ease is not the PRESENCE of ill-ness, but the ABSENCE of health. Poverty is not the PRESENCE of poverty, but the ABSENCE of abundance.

In nature, you don’t plant a seed and expect for a sick-ridden plant to grow. You don’t expect the plant to come out black, with tar oozing from it’s branches. You understand that by watering it and exposing it to light it will grow perfectly as it should. You understand that there is only a stream of life force moving it to grow, and if the plant is not nurtured it may grow deformed or die. If the stream is not allowed, then an unwanted condition appears, but it is not because the steam of negativity appeared, only because the well-being was not allowed.

We must begin to change our beliefs regarding life as a whole in order to live the miraculous that is meant for us. I noticed for myself today while I was driving to work that for so long I didn’t feel like the universe, Source, God, had my back. I felt like I had to do it all on my own. Even after studying the Law of Attraction for a decade I still felt as if it was necessary for me to be the emitter of the vibration I was wanting and have the universe just do it for me, exactly how I thought it should happen and exactly as I wanted it to happen. I felt like there was a round-about way in which I could use the laws of the universe to get me everything I wanted, instead of understanding that I need to work WITH the laws of the universe.

In order to start living the miraculous, we must begin to challenge our old patterns of thinking so that we believe the universe, Source, God, is working FOR us and WITH us! How freeing is it to belief and KNOW that the Consciousness that creates worlds is at our disposal, wanting nothing more than for our highest achievement, and supporting us in our every move?! Isn’t that freeing?!?! Isn’t it wonderful to feel like you can put your trust in the Force that creates worlds?! Isn’t it freeing to know that what you are wanting has already been achieved and that it is simply up to you to align with what it is you are wanting?! I feel so free realizing that I have a Divine Manager who is organizing all necessary components so that I may joyously bask in the fulfillment of my desires!!! And not only that, but enjoy the unfolding of my desires along the way!!!

The problems of the world are not that there isn’t enough stuff, or there isn’t enough to go around, or people can hurt me, or I am alone…but far more important it is our belief in that illusion. A Course in Miracles says, “Nothing real can be threatened, and Nothing unreal exists.” It goes on to say that only Love is real and fear doesn’t exist. My friends, my dear brothers and sisters, Love, the stream of well-being is all there is. Fear is not real, and in our experience of fear, it is only our misconception of the stream of Well-Being. It is our reminder that we are dealing in illusions, that we have gone astray from our deeper, innate understanding as extensions of Source, of God. In the Gospel of Luke it is said that the kingdom of heaven is within man. Where there is a kingdom there must reside a king. A Course in Miracles goes further and states, “that the Kingdom of Heaven IS man.”

My friends we have not fallen from grace, far from it. We have simply lost touch with our Divine understanding. The toils of the world have taken our focus away from our deepest knowing, have distracted us from our remembrance. Those of you who read this know deep within you that these words are true. You say to yourself, “Of course! How could I have forgotten this?!” But now you have remembered, and will never again forgot.

We are here as ambassadors of Love. Each and every individual on this planet comes as an extension of Source, an extension of God. Even though many do not remember their Divine ancestry, they are every bit as majestic as you and everyone else. Now is the time that words like these begin to be shared. Now is the time for our conscious remembrance of our highest knowing. It is no longer time to berate or blame anyone else for our circumstances, situations, or experiences. Now is the time for us to take responsibility for our lives and our experiences as we understand that we are the ultimate creators of our reality. Now is the time to LOVINGLY affect the vibration of all our brothers and sisters. Now is the time that WE LOVINGLY raise our vibrations to the states of bliss, appreciation, passion, enthusiasm, kindness, compassion, joy, excitement so that we affect ALL others even on an unconscious level.

As extensions of God, we KNOW that only Love exists. As extensions of Spirit, we KNOW that there is only a Stream of Well-Being. As extensions of Source, we KNOW our Infinite Potential. Now is the time that we LIVE that. No longer can we talk about kindness, then berate others. No longer can we talk about forgiveness, then judge others. No longer can we talk about Love, then demean ourselves. Now we must live true to our Selves. Now we must BE the Light. Now we must align, through our thoughts, with the Source of All-That-Is. Now we must return to our knowing of our reason for being here. We must return to joy, to peace, to enthusiasm, to freedom, to kindness, to compassion, to self-exploration, to excitement, to passion, to LOVE. May you remember this.

All My Love,

Zach

A Story of Faith…

Uncategorized

I was around 15 years old when my dad and I were watching the MTV Video Music Awards when Beyonce won best artist. She walked up on stage, overwhelmed, and said, “First and foremost I’d like to thank God.” When I heard that I blurted out, “Why is she thanking God, he didn’t do anything, she did all the work!” My dad looked at me and replied, “What do you mean? The reason you’re here is because of God!” I thought for a second, pondering life, and that’s when things started to change in my consciousness.Spiritual Awakening

Now this isn’t your average story of God. This isn’t a tale of a man becoming Christian, this isn’t about me blasting my beliefs and forcing them in anyone’s face, this is a different kind of story.

As a kid, our family were the typical, go to church on holiday, kind of church goers. My parents were both raised Catholic and seemed to have consistent views on their beliefs of God. I, however, thought church was incredibly boring, listening to an old white guy in a funny hat repeat boring scripture. When I got into middle school, I joined a Baptist church with my best friend and found myself more interested in the message of the bible. However, the stories were exactly that to me, stories. I didn’t truly believe a man walked on water, healed the sick, died and came back to life, it seemed like a great story, but a story nonetheless. Needless to say, when I was young I never developed a relationship with any higher power. I knew that if I put in the work to achieve what I wanted, I would reap the benefits. That was until I went through 5 years of chemotherapy treatment after having cancer twice as an adolescent.

You see, when I was 15 and watched Beyonce thank God I thought that was a cop-out. I truly felt she was just being diplomatic and didn’t actually thank God. My dad’s response was in reference to my still being alive after having already gone through my first year of chemotherapy and still being alive. I however, felt differently. I felt that as a result of myself, as a result of ME, that I was in remission. That changed within a year.

At 16 I relapsed and had a much different experience that time. I was no longer isolated in a room with no other kids around. This time I was in a hepa-fitered pediatric oncology ward and saw kids as young as 1 year old with tubes coming out of their chests receiving chemo. I looked around and thought, “What kind of God would do this?! How can we believe in God if He has the power to heal and yet all these kids are sick?!” It made no sense to me. This questioning took me down the rabbit hole.

When I was 19 I was given the documentary, The Secret, by a friend of my dads and that’s when it clicked. If you have not seen this documentary, I highly recommend you see it. However, the basis of the film is on the Law of Attraction. A law that is similar to the laws of gravity, yet not as recognized or understood by humanity. This law describes that “That which is like unto itself is drawn,” meaning, like attracts like. This film explains that thoughts are the creative force of all life and that the universe at large is responding to our thoughts and bringing us experiences which match those thoughts. As soon as I saw this film it was as if I was in heaven! I thought, “FINALLY!!! Something that gives me validation that I am the director of my own life and I will never have to rely on anything or anyone ever again!!!” Boy did I interpret that wrong!! 😉

That was 9 years ago and I have just recently in the last 3-4 years begun to develop a true relationship with God. And honestly, only the last year have I begun to develop a strong faith in the co-creative dance that happens between my thoughts, words, and actions and the manifestations of God.

Why I began writing today was because I felt inspired. 10 years ago I wouldn’t have had any idea was inspiration was, that I should just do something. I had no understanding of what was guiding me or why I had such a feeling, simply that I should do it. Now even though I stated earlier that I never cultivated a relationship with the Divine as a child, I always felt like I was being guided. I always had this intense push from within that told me I had to be strong and push on, no matter what the obstacle. Everything in my life was just an obstacle so that I could get stronger and rise above it. Today I finally understand what was guiding me.

You see, no matter if you choose to believe it or not, there is a Presence that directs all things. Not direction in the form of dictation, but a mere guidance to the path of truth. The trees are not forced to grow, yet they are guided to move to full size and provide oxygen, bear fruit, create homes for insects and other critters. Insects and animals are guided to build dams, collect nectar, dance among the sky, never forced yet always guided. Similarly, this Presence guides us home. This Presence, whether you call it God, or Source, or energy, it does not matter, you do not influence Perfection, perfection influences you.How to Change the World, new earth

As such, seeing as that this Presence is the Source of all that Is, the Source of All Life, this Presence knows beyond a question of a doubt which path is right for you in any area of your life. As an extension of this Presence, you have the choice to connect fully with this Divine Mind, or pinch yourself off It. It does not matter to Source what you choose in the moment because we are all free to do as we please, yet the joy of a child coming home far outweighs the choice of the child to stay away and not come and visit. Source is always beckoning us home, always reminding us in the most of subtle ways to return home, to return to our hearts.

You see, there was a time in my life where I thought I was all alone, doing it all by my lonesome. And it wasn’t until I realized it was much harder going at it alone than it was to challenge my beliefs and listen to that inner voice, the Voice telling me that I was looked after and protected. The Voice that guided me to the books and the documentaries and the constant reminder to return to Love.

You see my friends, this is a story of faith. Faith does not belong to religion. Faith is a state of being. Faith is a habitual practice of communicating with Source, with your Self. Faith is so much better than sitting alone wondering which direction you will take and weighing all the outcomes. Faith is about quieting yourself, quieting your mind, and with a clear intention listening to the Voice that has been guiding you anyways. As soon as you’re quiet, you will hear that Voice whisper, “This way my child, I’ll be right beside you the whole way.”

All My Love,

Zach

Physical Workout of the Day:

Today’s focus will be on the mental workout. Take at least 10 minutes for yourself to play with this game and see how it opens up doors for you! 🙂

Mental Workout of the Day:

“Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…” Game

Today’s mental workout will be focused on playing the “wouldn’t it be nice if…” game. Set a timer for 10 minutes and close your eyes. Say to your self, “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” and finish the sentence with what it is you are desiring. Play this as if you are imagining all the possibilities you have ever desired. Start with the things that you don’t have a lot of resistance against, such as “Wouldn’t it be nice if someone told me I had a nice smile.” Things that really you don’t have a lot of resistance against. As you do this, really feel what it would be like to have someone tell you that you have a nice smile. After you have begun to feel more uplifted move on to the things that you are REALLY desiring. You could say, “Wouldn’t it be nice if I met the perfect partner for me and had a nice conversation with them.” As you play this, remember that it is key to FEEL the feeling of being in the situation, experiencing what it is like to be in actual circumstance. Continue playing this until you are truly feeling better or until the timer goes off.
