Act As If...

I would like to apologize for not blogging last week. Some unexpected circumstances took me out of town. On my long drive, however, I was able to listen to some things that have given me a chance to refocus.

I learned that I must act as if I am creating, attracting, and manifesting everything in life. (For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction, watch the movie "The Secret" and you will get a better idea of what I mean.) When regressed back to before birth, researchers found that about 75% of people remembered choosing to be born. Not only did they choose to be born, they chose their parents and their circumstances.

If that is the case, we need to act as if we have attracted everything into our lives. Many people say, "Everything happens for a reason". Well, I would like to take it further and say that, "Everything happens because we have chosen it".

When I spoke to a family member about this, I used the example of someone who had cancer. I said that they needed to take 100% responsibility in order to heal. I said that maybe they didn't eat the greatest foods, exercise regularly, etc. to which she replied, "but what if they have?".

You see, becoming ill is so much more than our physical body. When we let negative thought patterns control our lives, we are creating dis-ease. Our souls do not soar through negative thinking. Our souls take flight when we treat ourselves and everyone around us with kindness and respect.

In this world, we are also subject to outside dis-ease causing agents such as pesticides, herbicides, chemicals in our clothing, cleaning products, fluoride, environmental pollutants, etc. While we cannot completely avoid these, we can do our best by not using or partaking in products that use these agents (i.e. eat organic, buy organic clothing, make your own cleaning products, choose not to live near a toxic waste site or farm land that uses pesticide).

Once you learn to take responsibility for absolutely everything that comes up, you realize your own inner power, which in turn allows for inner peace. Act as if you are co-creator and things begin to take on a different light. No longer will you feel stress and anxiety. Taking responsibility will set you free!

Love and Gratitude~


  1. I read the book, "The Secret". I think there is greater wisdom and understanding of reality in the Bible. We have been empowered to make decisions, but we have not been empowered to control the dynamic of others, nature or most importantly God. Trying too will ultimately be a most humbling experience.

  2. I can respect your opinion and I do believe there is definitely great wisdom in the Bible. We may not have the ability to control the actions of others, but we can choose our reactions. When it comes to acts of nature or God, I do believe we (collectively) need to take some responsibility. For example, we were given this amazing planet to live upon, however, we do not treat it with compassion, love, or respect. For that, we must all be responsible. Even if you were to live off your land and not participate in the trashing of our earth, maybe you didn't spread the message to others who were not doing so.

    I find acting "as if" to be very humbling indeed. Not taking ownership (for me, anyway) would simply result in a disconnect to both myself and my spirituality.

    Thank you for your challenge. It has caused me to delve deeper into the reality of my belief system.

    With respect, love and gratitude~
