Even though the temperature is in the low 40's

  • The sun is shining brightly

  • I'm listening to gospel music on my local radio station

  • I heard someone outside riding on their skateboard even though the temperature is in the 40's

I'm Feeling Kind Of Down And Depressed Today....

Time to list what I am grateful for:

  • I am grateful to have a nice and warm house to live in. Currently its 28 degrees outside and we have just had 3 inches of snow today!

  • I am grateful for my new refridgerator that I was able to get with a grant

I feel a lot better now!

MC Hammer

I just read a reading that someone did for MC Hammer. The reason why I mention this is because MC Hammer was very famous and very rich at one time and he lost it all!

But now slowly and surely he is steadily rising and growing and evolving again. He also has a blog online.

Like I said the reason why I mention him is because he is the perfect example of someone who was down at one time but he is now slowly starting to renew his life. He has a TV show and I'm sure that other good and wonderful things will be happening for him.

My Tarot Reading For Today

I was feeling kind of depressed today so I thought that I would do a tarot reading on myself and I drew the "Ace Of Wands".

Here is the interpretation for the "Ace of Wands"

using creative force
inventing a better way
expanding your potential
opening to greater possibilities
conceiving a dream
expressing yourself
stimulating your imagination
allowing a talent to unfold
coming up with a solution

showing enthusiasm
feeling fired up and eager
creating an aura of excitement
being ready to tackle the world
inspiring others
sustaining optimism
giving 110%

having confidence
believing in yourself
feeling assured of your abilities
being sure of success
having high self-esteem
having faith in your path
knowing things will work out

proceeding with courage
tackling a challenging task
going beyond your limits
being true to your beliefs
daring to take a stand
facing your fears
going for it

The Ace of Wands is a symbol of possibility in the area of creativity, excitement, adventure, courage and personal power. In readings, it shows that a seed of bold enthusiasm has been planted in your life although you may not yet recognize it. When the seed sprouts, it could take almost any form. It might be a creative idea, surge of optimism or need to act boldly. On the outside, it could be an offer, gift, opportunity, encounter or synchronistic event.

When you see this Ace, examine your life to see how its potent, confident energy could work for you. Be daring and brave. Sometimes you have to risk to get what you want. Look for the path that will excite you and push you beyond your limits. Seize the initiative, and let your enthusiasm take you to new heights. Wands are the suit of individual power and fulfillment. This Ace tells you that a time of passion is beginning. You will be able to assert your best for all to see.

The Ace of Wands is also the card of creativity. Under its influence, you can become a conduit for inspiration and invention. Forget tired, worn-out solutions. You have the chance to be original. Trust your own creative potential, and there will be no end to what you can achieve.

This is a very interesting tarot reading for me but it does sound just like how my life is going. I am taking a lesser known road in my life and it is scary BUT it is the path that I want to take. I just can't tell you how much I am risking here but I know that it is a risk that I absolutely MUST take!

When You Are Feeling Down Here Is Something That You Can Do

Whenever you are feeling down and depressed here is something that you can do.

I'm feeling kind of down today myself.

Write down 10 things that you are grateful for.

I am grateful for:

  1. I am grateful for my comupter! I'm grateful that I'm able to have one of my own that is in my home because a lot of people are not able to afford a computer.

  2. I am very grateful that I have internet access. I have gotten customers and clients because of my being able to have a web presence.

  3. I am very grateful for the talents that I do have because so many people don't know (or don't use) their talents. I will continue to be grateful for and use my talents

  4. I am very grateful for this absolutely gorgeous day! The sun is shining. It is cold but I am nicely snug inside my home!

  5. I am very grateful for my home! I love my home and I love where I live!

  6. I am grateful for the money that I do have in the bank. It is keeping my bank balance from being in the negative and that means that I don't have to pay any of those banking fees!

  7. I am grateful for my cat who is my little playmate and companion (and occassional "fight" buddy) - she is taking a nap right now

  8. I am grateful for the heat and electricity in my house.

  9. I am grateful to have things to be grateful for

  10. I am very grateful for my new refridgerator that I was able to get with a grant - Now I am able to store my food in the freezer and have ice once again!

What I Am Grateful For Today

I am grateful for:

  • hearing the words that "everybody has something to contribute" which means everyone - including you and I. We all have something to contribute to the world!

  • I am thankful for the money that I DO have in the bank because it is keeping my bank balance above zero so that I don't have to pay any bank fees

  • I am grateful for my cat who is currently eating her lunch right now

  • I am grateful for the food that I have cooking right now (which is baked chicken)

  • I am grateful for having a roof over my head

  • I am grateful for my health

  • I am grateful for the talents that I DO have! Almost everybody has a talent of one kind or another - even if they don't think they do

The Law Of Attraction At Work!

One of my financial goals is to get all of my bills current! I have written down on my vision board.

Today in the mail I got one of my bills where I am being charged for the equipment. I called them up and found out that once I pay my balance they will waive the charge for the equipment.

So I do believe that this is the law of attraction at work!

The Law Of Attraction At Work!

One of my 3 financial goals (that I have written down and put on my very own vision board) is to have all of my bills currently paid and up to date. Today in the mail I got some information about a grant program for my utility bill. The mail came from my utility company so I know that it wasn't a scam.

The amount of this grant would cut my utility bill in HALF!

So far I meet all of the eligibility requirements and I called the number and they are sending me the forms. I also found out from the literature about the grant that this program closes next month so I got it at a very good time!

I definitely know that this is the law of attraction at work.

It is a very good idea to have a vision board so that you will have a visualy picture of what you want, what you desire and the way that you want your life to be!

Inspirational Website

Whenever I'm feeling down, depressed or just plain "blue" I will go to a certain website that always helps to cheer me up. The name of the site is:

Just like its name says, this website has articles about helping one grow. When I go to this website it always puts me back on track to where I want (my thoughts) to be.

I hope you enjoy the website as well and I hope it helps you just as much as it has helped me.

I Want To Feel Good

Where does that title come from? It comes from Dr. Wayne Dyer. He says that whenever your thoughts are causing you to feel bad say to yourself that you want to feel good! Think only of thoughts that make you feel good.

What makes me feel good? Wealth, riches, financial abundance and success in my business and life!

Recognizing Abundance

Recognizing abundance

"If your everyday life seems poor, don't blame it; blame yourself; admit to yourself that you are not enough of a poet to call forth its riches; because for the creator there is no poverty and no indifferent place."

-- Rainer Maria Rilke

Where do you now experience abundance in your life?

If you are hard-pressed to find abundance in your finances or possessions, look to spiritual qualities. Do you experience abundance in a special relationship? In a quiet moment in a park? In a good laugh with a friend? The more you acknowledge abundance in your spirit, the richer your life will become.

"Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance."

-- John Petit-Senn

Sex Offender Wins $10 Million Dollar Lottery!

What this says is that you never know where your financial abundance will be coming from! Now I play the lottery a few times but I also know that I should not only consider this as the only source of financial abundance. I have to open myself to the universe thereby opening myself to receiving finacial abundance from as many sources as possible.

Here are a couple of links relating to this story

Here is a link to an article about the law of attraction and winning the lottery

LOA and Winning The Lottery

Everybody Has Talents

Here is a listing of mine:

  • I can do astrology charts

  • I can do tarot readings

  • I can make a decent-looking website

Almost everyone has talents that they can use to make a living - and a good living at that! Dr. Wayne Dyer say to "sell your expertise".

I can do astrology readings online whereas I can do readings for clients and customers and charge them per reading. They can pay for my services, I can gather their information and then compose their charts and send it to them either by email or I can put their chart online - however I think its best that I send it to them via email so that their information is more private.

I can do the same thing regarding my tarot readings as well.

I read a very interesting post from some who was feeling discouraged because they had a business but they were getting comments like "I wouldn't pay for that..." - which I'm sure depressed and frustrated them. Do you know the advice given? The answer was that if they weren't willing to pay for your product or service then it was their loss and not yours!

If you thoroughly believe in your talent then you should have nothing to worry about and take solace in the fact that there are others who are making a very good living doing the same thing that it is that you want to do.

There is also opportunities everywhere!

For one thing I have the adsense ads on this blog. I also have a "Donate" button on this blog too - both good and legitimate sources of revenue and income.

I hope that by journaling my journel to financial wealth and abundance it will help you to see that you are not alone in your own journey(s) as well.

Is This A Test?

I have heard Dr. Wayne Dyer say it.........................

Dr. Wayne Dyer says that when something is not going his way he considers and says to himself that "this is a test".

This is how I am looking at my own financial situation now. It is a test. It is a test of faith and a test of my faith in myself and in God and my Universe.

Joyce Meyers is another name that comes to mind because I was watching one of her ministry programs and she was talking about this exact same thing. It's sort of like saying the devil is trying to put thoughts in your head that make you lose your focus and cause you to do things that you would not normally do. I have been tempted but so far I have not done anything out of the ordinary that goes against my faith in others and myself.

What does my gut tell me? It tells me to not give up!

Waiting For A Client?

Another sign of the Law Of Attraction at work!

I recently got an email from one of my very first clients. This was a client from a couple of years ago. They are wanting to use my services again and when I received the email I was excited! Previously to that I was focusing and concentrating my thoughts on manifesting more money!

Now that I got the email from a former client who wants to use my services again, I clearly associate this with the workings of the Laws Of Attraction.

Now I answered the email explaining my services and how much I charge for them. I sent this email last Sunday and I have checked my email twice so far since Sunday. I don't want to overdo it or stress or worry about the client actually coming through. I read a blog post that what you should do in a situation like this is to first imagine / contemplate that you already have the client and continue on with your routine - meaning what would you be doing if you had already gotten the client's business. In my case the answer would be to continue on working, keeping up with my email and not checking my email every 5 seconds just to see that "you have a payment" line in my email.

So off I am to continue my work..........................

My Financial Goal!

My financial goal is to have $1 Million Dollars in the bank and living off the interest from that! You can say that I am pretty much starting off at zero but as I look back at my life I do see improvement. For instance I now have a bank account after not having one for quite some time - a few years!

  • To get more specific (I hope that this helps others) I had overdrawn my previous bank account to the point that it was closed out. Now with them adding additional fees there was a bigger amount that I had to pay. So for a time I didn't have a bank account and for a while that suited me just fine because at the time I didn't have any money! But you know what there were times when I did receive some money such as a tax refund or the check that I got for doing jury duty when I had to go to a check cashing place to get my check cashed - and of course there was a fee involved to cash the check. As time went by I wanted to have a bank account again! So I started making payments on the balance.

    Here is a good rule of thumb that I read somewhere - Start making payments on money that you owe even if it is just $10 a month.

    It took me about maybe three years to pay of my bank balance. I had started making payments but then had stopped for a while and then maybe a year or two later I was able to make the last payment in one big lump! Where did I get the money to make the lump sum payment? I got the money from a real estate transaction that had to do with my home. So I paid off the balance and within two weeks I opened a new bank account which I have now. This bank doesn't have a fee for how much you have in your checking account because I will tell you (hopefully again hoping that this will help you) that there have been times when I have had less than $1 in my bank account. But I have not looked at this as a bad thing. The good thing about this is that I have a balance in my account - a positive balance - even if it is under a dollar! Have I ever overdrawn this account? - Yes - and the lesson that I have learned from that is to not do it again! So now I have a bank account again which makes life much more easier and convenient! It is also a sign that my financial life is improving and headed in the direction that I want it to be!

Maybe if I talk about my experiences it will help some of you who are in the same (or unfortunately more worse) circumstance.

The Law Of Attraction At Work In My Life

On my journey to financial wealth, the law of attraction is working in my life!

It may seem small but the fact that I have started this additional blog and have added adsense to it means that I am generating additional income for myself. I cannot think in terms of how small it is starting. I have to focus on the fact that it is an additional source of income for me. It also proves the point that financial opportunities are everywhere!

What I Am Grateful For Today

I am grateful for:

  • that I have a place to live. It is snowing outside right now and here I am inside a nice warm house.

  • I am grateful for my cat who both fights with me and plays with me

  • I am grateful for the brand new refridgerator that I have. I was able to get this new refridgerator from a government grant which means that I didn't have to pay for it - which is truly a blessing. It took about 2 years from the time that I wanted a new refridgerator to the time that I actually got it. My old one wasn't working and I had had it for over 10 years and still needed it to store my food in.

  • I am grateful for the food that I have in the refridgerator because there have been times when I didn't have any food in the refridgerator.

  • I am grateful that I have a computer and Internet access

  • I am most grateful for still having my sanity and still being able to have happy thoughts and being able to smile and laugh

  • Even though I haven't achieved my financial goals yet I know that financial abundance is on its way and I am grateful for the money that I do have in the bank because that amount is keeping my bank balance in the positive and not the negative. I am also grateful for the money I have earned and for the clients that I have now. I know that what I do provides value and helps people and I am grateful for the talents that I do have and have come to realize that using my talents helps others.

I also have the additional blessing of loving where I live. I know that there are a lot of people that cannot say the same thing but I actually love where I live. My neighbors are nice and the area is gorgeous especially during the fall!

I Decided To Start This Blog Because.....

I have been having such a bad day!

There are so many things that I want in my life right now that I do not have right now and not having them is making me crazy, angry and bitter! But I know that this is not the way that I should be feeling.

What I should be feeling is gratitude for the things that I DO have and not focus on what I don't have. I am supposed to focus on what it is that I DO want and not focus on what I don't want. Now the fact that I know what I am supposed to be doing helps but I have to continue to work on those negative thoughts that keep coming into my head.

What I want is wealth, financial abundance, security and not having to worry about my bills! Now this sentence tells me a lot. I have written down what I do want but in the same sentence I have "not having to worry about my bills". Now I know that the solution for this is to focus on what I do want - which is finacial wealth and abundance - and not focus on what I don't want which is my worrying about bills. The solution for that is for me to focus on having financial wealth and abundance so that I have the money to pay my bills.

I have seen many times online and from other sources that one should keep a journal and that is exactly why I started this blog.

I know that there are many other people who are in the same situation as I am and want to be out of this kind of situation.

So hopefully my journey will help you on your own journey too!
