A few years ago I was sitting at my desk surrounded by positive affirmations, crystals, and my career vision board, focusing on the greatest good. I asked the universe to help me discover the “highest and best use” of my natural talents. After a few moments, I had an idea for a book. I wanted to explore the concept of love without conditions. Absolute Love. Love in its highest incarnation.
I wanted to hear other people’s stories about unconditional love, and to share them with the world through my book. As soon as I cemented this idea in my mind, individuals of stature (speakers, singers, musicians, baseball players, and other celebrities) started appearing. It started with one person who wanted to share her journey on learning to love herself. Then another would contact me out of the blue, and so on and so forth until I had more essays than I knew what to do with! My intention became a compilation of essays, Love Like God: Embracing Unconditional Love.
My latest book, Women Will Save the World, came together in a similar fashion. I came across a quote from the Dalai Lama, “The world will be saved by the Western woman.” I kept churning the words over in my mind, and one day I announced to the editor of my publishing company that I wanted to create a book that would explore this profound statement. I stated my intention and soon after I had stories pouring in from these remarkable women, highly-esteemed women—celebrities and experts in their fields, who were open to sharing words of inspiration on a variety of categories: collaboration, creativity, intuition, nurturing, strength, trailblazing, and wisdom. The finished product is exactly what I had hoped it would be.
As my business expanded, I hired an assistant. After a few months, she quit unexpectedly. Within two hours an email came through my website’s Contact Form from a young lady who was relocating to the area and was searching for a job in the publishing industry. I knew I would hire her before we even met for an interview. Just like that, the universe gave me what I needed at just the right moment!
I use the Law of Attraction constantly in my business and I encourage those who work with me to do the same. I always make sure to ask for my highest and greatest good, in whatever I am trying to attract.
A few examples are:
– Always word in the way of the positive, whether speaking or writing. Even when writing a blog post or Facebook comment, we avoid using “don’t” or “can’t,” and instead lead with a positive intention.
– Envision exactly what outcome is desired and meditate on it. We open ourselves to receiving positive things, and then they happen. While receiving, we release our thoughts about how things will happen and give them up to the Universe. Thoughts about “how” pull energy in the wrong direction.
– Make our intentions clear to the universe.
– Have faith. We have to trust that wherever or however we are at any time is how we are meant to be in that moment.
