You’ve heard me say more times than I’ve had hot dinners that our life simply reflects our consciousness, or what we’re aware of, what we think and believe and feel.  And if we want a different experience in life, the change must begin in our consciousness.

But you’ve never heard me say I’m really, really good at keeping my attention on what I want and my thoughts are always and only directed towards fulfilling my desires.  Not that I don’t intend to, nor wish that I did…but there are times when I fall short, fall into the trap of being distracted by an event or an experience.  I wanted to set the record straight in case you think I’m some sort of paragon of virtue in the ‘reflecting the perfect life’ stakes.  Just keeping it real.

Looking for the truth?  Check out my darling one’s blog  Not really…well I don’t think so…hmmm maybe I should check it out myself, just to be on the safe side.

Knowing how the laws of life work helps…a lot.  Practicing it helps…a lot.  That’s what we need, awareness and practice. And being imperfect is okay…we recognize it and press on…well that’s what I do…you can too…it really is okay.

Flowing stream

Janey was upset the last time I saw her.  She was upset with herself for being less than perfect at using these laws of life.  I must be doing something wrong she proclaimed, I’m not getting what I want.

Turns out that a few weeks ago she met the perfect man.  He seemed to be ideal, with all the qualities that were important to her.  She thought he liked her too…until suddenly…and without warning…he didn’t.  He ditched her.

It must be my fault…I’m to blame…I didn’t use these laws in the right way.



This is about empowerment, not condemnation for being imperfect.  Don’t put that into your consciousness.  Only claim as true of you what it is you want to experience.

So she met a possible Mr Right…and he wasn’t.  So what?  It might be that she’s imagining the ideal partner and seeming Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong.  In other words he didn’t fit the bill.  Could be she’s using the laws of life perfectly.

Pair of swans

Back to basics.  First imagine what it is you want, then continue to imagine, then repeat the imagining, then do it again.  Don’t stop until what you’ve imagined is right there in front of you.  Fill your mind with the thoughts that you have this lovely thing you’re imagining, its really here and you’re excited, happy, relieved, elated.  Be so in love with what you’re imagining, you can hardly think of anything else.  Be filled with it.

That, kiddos is what we need to do to bring a really, really great desire into our world.

Your imagination is able to do all that you ask in proportion to the degree of attention you give it.  Don’t accept no for an answer.  If your ideal man/woman, financial situation, health, happiness, career hasn’t arrived yet, persist.  Don’t be deterred by time, nor by the fact that old and familiar situations are still appearing…every seed time has its appointed hour, and will bear fruit.  Every assumption, if persisted in will harden into fact.

Small stream as we entered Mt. Rainier

Recognize the beauty and strength and power within others and you’ll see it in you.  Empower another to rise above their present conditions and you will rise too.  It’s always, always about what’s in our consciousness…be it about us or another.  There is no blame…there merely is…consciousness.

Encourage one another.

Love Elle.

  2. Hi Elle,
    I *love* this! Thank you for the affirmations within, perfect timing.
    Janey’s Mr Right was right for the moment she was in, and then she healed or she grew or she raised her vibration, and he was no longer right. And that is okay.
    I am queen of imperfections. And that is okay. It is my imperfections that make me *me*. And, I am queen of vibrations and positive thinking and experiencing magic, even though (or maybe because) I am imperfect. Thank you for keeping it real. That is the best way I know to connect 🙂

      Hello Rita and welcome…how lovely to see your consciousness in action…thank you.

  4. Thank you for opening this post with your truth. “Just keeping it real” is always such a powerful way to share your experience and knowledge, and especially when the topic is affirmation, law of attraction or manifestation.
    You’re examples of how this process might appear to work, or not, and then be derailed by our need to be perfect, is spot on!
    Wishing you well–
