TheSecret

Do you remember that first spark of hope you felt when you watched The Secret? I clearly remember the desire that filled my heart, knowing that – Yes, I can make my dreams come true – FINALLY!

But how many of you soon saw that hope dwindle into frustration? How many of you (and be honest now) started muttering things like:

- “It seems to work for other people, but I just can’t get it right.”

- “I’m frustrated that sometimes I can get it to work, but sometimes I can’t. What’s the trick?”

- “Why am I having so much trouble?”

- “I think the universe is against me.”

- “I’m trying very, VERY hard but still nothing is happening!”

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. About 97% of people also couldn’t make the Law of Attraction work for them the first time round. Think about it, just like anything else, you have to practice many times before you see success. A child doesn’t learn to walk without falling over a couple of times, right?

But in practice, everything is easier said and done. When you’re frustrated, it’s hard to stay positive. And it’s especially harder to stay positive when the evidence all around you is screams negativity like the unstable economy or senseless acts of violence such as those recently seen in Mumbai.

And do you know what happens when you fail to stay positive? That’s right – you start attracting negative things in to your life.

So how can you make the Law of Attraction work for you – without getting frustrated? How do those who successfully implement the Law of Attraction do it with such confidence and finesse?

Well, here’s three quick tips so you will never feel frustrated or tired of begging from the universe, because you know how to start manifesting like a pro.

1. Allow Yourself To Receive

Just like a lost child who approaches a police officer and asks, “Excuse me Sir, can you tell me how to go to the post office? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you?” Well, if the child goes on and on asking, the police officer can’t even give an answer, right?

Well, it’s the same thing with your mind. If the only thing your mind is doing is transmit, transmit, transmit, the universe — which is trying to respond — can’t give you a single thing because you’re not allowing yourself to receive!

So, have the confidence in yourself and stop exhausting yourself by running around person to person begging for riches, and then wondering why nobody is dropping a penny in your cup (Hint: It’s because you’re running away too fast for them before they can even reach for their wallets).

Just think of your desires and leave it out there, go away, and trust that your cup will be filled with gold coins (or whatever it is you asked for) when the time is right.

2. Be Patient With Yourself

Receiving takes time.

Sadly, many people give up just a couple of steps before the finish line because they’ve decided that if it’s not working by now, it’s never going to work at all. Worse still are those who throw in more and more energy because they think that with more resources, the results will come faster.

This is like expecting 9 mothers to conceive and deliver a baby in 1 month. You also can’t bake cookies in half the time by doubling the temperature. You’ll incinerate those cookies to ashes!

In simple terms: Everything in this world has a natural development time, and this fact will not change no matter what resources you throw at it.

So relax and be patient. Remember that you too, as part of the universe, are also governed by the laws of the universe, and you cannot change the natural development time.

If you remember this, you will less likely work yourself up into frustration, or worse, push yourself into a downward spiral of negativity.

3. Support and Educate Yourself

Like the child who is learning how to walk, you need support. You also need to guidance on how to do it, and also the role models to look up to.

Many people give up because they think that “The Secret” is the “be all and end all” solution. Well, it’s NOT. “The Secret” is just a small portion. It was never intended, and has never been, the whole answer.

Coming to the conclusion that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work when all you ever did to educate yourself was watch “The Secret” 19 times (without looking at changing the habits of other areas of your life) is like coming to the conclusion that exercising is not an effective way to lose weight because all you did is run on the treadmill for 2 hours a day (but you’re still stuffing yourself with fried foods and cheesecakes).

So seek and be hungry for new knowledge. Also, make an effort to be amongst people or communities where you can support each other, learn from each other and also share new knowledge that you have found.

While the Law of Attraction is not an overnight delivery service, it will indeed deliver, if you do your part too! Check out the site here.

OneThingMenWantMoreThanYourLove

Ladies be warned: you are about to enter the inner workings of the male brain.

There is one thing that is more important to a man than your love. And unfortunately, most men feel they are not getting enough of it.

I know what you’re thinking, sex. It’s always sex, right? But no, I am not talking about sex here.

The ONE thing men want more than your love is your respect.

Why is respect so important to a man?

No matter how self-assured men may appear on the outside, on the inside they are all secretly harboring massive insecurities about not being worthy enough – not having what it takes to be a ‘real man’.

Underneath that confident exterior, your man may be feeling helpless, dumb, ugly, weak, or boring. And he’s looking to you to either confirm or deny his fears.

A lot of how he feels inside comes from how he sees himself in your eyes.

Did you know that a recent survey showed over 40% of men feel unappreciated by their significant others or families?

If he is not feeling respected by you, whose opinion matters to him most, how is he meant to gain the respect of anyone else?

For him to feel loved and worthy as a man, he needs to feel respected by you. And for him to feel respected, he needs for you to show him your respect. BOTH in times when you are happy with him, AND when you are feeling frustrated.

But don’t we all want respect?

Love and respect are important to all of us in a relationship, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that women usually do not realize just how important respect is to a man, and how it affects his feelings of love and commitment towards YOU.

Your man does want your love. It’s just that if he had to choose between the two, it would be less soul-destroying for him to lose your love than your respect.

Which can be hard for women to understand, when generally the number one thing we are looking out for in a relationship are signs of our man’s love.

But doesn’t he already know I respect him?

You may think that you already respect your man, but you could be really surprised to find out that he might not always see it that way. Because he needs for you to actually show him.

But the hard thing is, he won’t actually be able to tell you when he is feeling a lack of respect. Instead, what you will see is ‘unnecessary’ displays of anger in a minor disagreement, or being given the cold shoulder for seemingly no reason. Ring any bells?

No matter how much you love your man, be wary that there may be times where you are showing him disrespect without even being aware of it. Let’s look at how you can consciously avoid doing this now, and instead start showing him your respect (and your love) in a big way.

1. Trust his judgment

This is a biggie. Trusting his judgment is all about affirming his decisions without questioning them, within reason of course! This may mean taking things into perspective letting little things slide – will it really matter if his way is a bit more complicated than your way?

Unfortunately, all too often we tend to question his decisions even without realizing it. We may think we are being helpful in offering an alternative or asking him to explain his reasoning, but really what we are doing is deflating his ego through self-doubt.

Always assume he is doing things for the best reasons, rather than jumping straight to the critique. We all make mistakes, but if you allow him to handle his with grace he will be forever grateful.

Try adding these phrases to your everyday vocabulary:

“You’re right”
“That does sound like the best way”
“I trust you”

Of course, if you do strongly disagree with a judgment-call of your partner’s, you have every right to voice your opinion and suggest an alternative. Just try and treat his ego as gently as you can while you do this.

2. Ask him for help and advice

A great way of showing your man that you respect and value his input is by asking for his help and advice.
Although us independent women often want to get things done by ourselves and are perfectly capable of making our own decisions (he knows this perfectly), it can actually be really nice to have the perspective of someone else every once in a while.

“Hey babe, I’ve been having a lot of trouble figuring something out lately, and I could really use your help. What do you think about…?”

Obviously, you don’t want to seem like a damsel in distress who is incompetent of making her own decisions. But try making it a conscious effort to ask your man for his input every once in a while, and be sure to thank him after.

Helping you will make him feel good, and will really boost feelings of closeness in your relationship.

3. Allow him to complete DIY tasks

“That would be so helpful if you could fix that broken tap, sweetie. You’re amazing”.

When something needs to be done at home, don’t call in the professional immediately. It may take your man longer, he may make mistakes along the way, but fixing things himself will give him a real sense of success and worthiness. DIY tasks are something that all men enjoy, so try to leave these challenges open for him.

Don’t worry, if it gets to the point where a professional does need to take a look, your man will arrange this themselves. It just might happen to be when you’re not home.

4. Show your appreciation

“Thank you so much for doing that, honey. I really appreciate it.”

A simple ‘thank you’ can do so much in making your man feel worthy and valued. Better yet, it will make him more likely to continue to do these things in future. Of course, there are multiple ways you can show your appreciation…

5. Acknowledge his success

This is about recognising his achievements, and focusing on acknowledging and rewarding what he has done well, rather than criticising what he hasn’t done.

Saying “I’m proud of you” goes a long way – hearing this will make him feel the same way as you do when you hear “I love you”. I’m not kidding!

6. 5 compliments to every criticism

Research has shown that too much praise can be detrimental to your relationship, just like too much criticism can be. But what is the right ratio?

Well a good rule of thumb according to psychologists is a 5 to 1 ratio. That means that for every time you criticize him, you should be praising him 5 times.

If you find yourself criticizing just as often as you are praising, then you’ll either need to let a lot more things slide (pick your battles), or you need to start noticing more of the positive things he does and actively show this appreciation whenever you can.

7. Show public respect

“Dave was so great with the kids last night”

“Dave got the washing machine going again in just a few minutes!”

“Did you hear about the promotion Dave just got at work? I’m so proud of him”.

There is nothing that will make your man feel more loved than publicly displaying your respect and appreciation for him. You can do this by letting others know how well he did at something, or by talking about a way in which he’s helped you recently. He may try to downplay this or show a little embarrassment, but on the inside he will be beaming.

Please note that the flipside of this, which is also highly important, is to choose to hold your tongue if you disagree with something he says or does in public. Instead, wait until you are in private before you bring it up.

There is nothing that will cut your man more deeply than being criticised or belittled by you in front of his mates. Even that light teasing you thought was funny may actually have felt humiliating for him – always look out for signs he might be feeling uncomfortable.

He will really appreciate it if you save any constructive criticism for later when you’re alone, and will also be a lot more prepared to take in your advice. It’s a win-win.

Stress and modern diseases have started to take over the human population. More and more people complain about serious illnesses and diseases as well as about a weak immune system which is no longer able to cope with the invasion of external, harmful factors. The problem behind all these health issues is the body’s inability to heal itself.

We have bacteria in our bodies all the times, both good bacteria and bad bacteria. Yet, the bad ones are kept under control by the human body through its power of defense. When this power, this healing energy is no longer present inside the body, it can no longer fight back and the bad energies as well as the diseases set in.

Reiki (Rei = universal and Ki= life force, energy) means the universal energy, the power which is available in the entire universe, in all the living creatures as well as all natural items from this planet. This energy is used in helping the body increase its ability to heal and fight back external aggressions. This technique of Japanese origins is both a healing instrument as well as a purifying technique used for prevention.

Reiki

The principles of Reiki are simple: by balancing the body’s natural energy, its healing power its increased considerably, so that the bacteria and viruses will not be able to defeat it. Also, any type of disease present at that moment inside the body will be healed or at least improved. The Reiki sessions result in a thorough cleansing of the body and in clearing the mind of all the negative thoughts which used to linger there. Thus, the body will be clean and energetically balanced from both a physical and spiritual perspective.

There are two types of Reiki sessions: the direct ones, in which the Reiki master places their hands on the most important parts of the body and the indirect ones, which take part when the Reiki master cannot reach the client. The procedures are basically the same, with the exception that the client is missing and the Reiki master will just imagine placing their hands on the body. It is said that both procedures are almost equally effective, with slightly more benefic results in the case of hands-on sessions.

Reiki can make wonders for your aura and can help you fight all the diseases of the body and mind which want to take control over you. It is a non-invasive method without any side effects and with great results. Numerous patients stand as proof for that!

HowToCreateimmediateAttraction

When it comes to attracting women, a lot guys have NO CLUE how to create attraction in the first place.

Having a conversation is one thing, but using the power of your words to spark her interest is a whole other ball game. That’s why so many men can’t figure out why they’re falling flat on their faces and end up getting brushed off.

Instead, women are flocking towards guys who skip the boring conversational stuff and create sexual tension right under their radars.

In fact, this is the very area of attraction where most guys FAIL. They tend to take the “safe” path by NOT having the nerve to hint about their true feelings. In their minds, dropping hints to let a girl know they like her is the way to rejection.

They couldn’t be more WRONG.

On the contrary, you’re more likely to make a girl curious about you by creating some ambiguity about your feelings towards her (i.e. being just a friend vs. someone who likes her).

You can’t afford to come off as this sterile version of yourself who can’t even admit to himself that he likes the girl he’s talking to. If you want her to have those same feelings for you, everything you do, such as your conversational style and non-verbal communication, needs to work towards this purpose.

To make this happen, you first need to accept that there’s nothing wrong with approaching a girl with romantic intentions. Otherwise, you’ll be uncomfortable talking to her in the first place, and this uneasy vibe is going to affect her as well.

She’ll get weirded out by your awkwardness, and you’ll quickly go down in flames. Either that, or you’ll get banished to the “friend zone” that a lot of guys keep finding themselves in.

If you want to extinguish that creepy or platonic vibe that other men unconsciously give off, you’ll need to talk to women in a way that plays up your attractive side so she doesn’t see you as just another loser or “harmless guy”.

The simplest way to be intriguing is by delicately working into the conversation about how driven you are when it comes to living in general.

Most women would say that they want a guy who has goals and ambitions – that’s because they’re attracted to men who have a sense of PURPOSE in life.

The best part about cultivating this “carpe diem personality” is that you just have to draw from an area of your life that really gets you going. You know, something you could talk about enthusiastically for HOURS on end.

Let’s say you’re into vintage automobiles because you’re a sucker for all kinds of cars from different eras. For you, it’s infinitely fascinating to learn about a certain model because of the culture that comes with it.

Maybe in your eyes, cars aren’t just a piece of machinery, but rather a work of art that also serves as a slice of history. If this is what gets your motor running, then it gives you plenty of stuff to talk about.

Maybe not every woman you’ll meet will be a gearhead like you, but you can still create rapport by talking about cars from a historical and cultural standpoint as well. Who knows, you could slip in a few pop cultural references in the conversation to get her interested in you.

So regardless of what it is, using your interests will help you give women the impression that you’re not just a knowledgeable guy, but also someone who feels really strongly about a certain field. And that equals an enthusiastic attitude towards life.

Remember, the quality of the conversation is only as good as the level of energy you bring to the table.

Here’s another good way to seal the deal: AVOID GROVELLING.

That’s right, acting like you have to bribe her just to have a few minutes of her time puts you at an extreme disadvantage. You’re not creating attraction when you give up the game by being super nice to her so quickly.

Push back a little and give her some attitude. And by that I mean being playful and humorous instead of showering her with compliments like the other schmucks she’s shot down before you.

From a woman’s perspective, it’s actually a little sickening to see a guy grovel his way to her affections. I mean, why be so nauseatingly sweet to someone you barely even know, just because she happens to be attractive?

So you’re better off being fun to talk to by teasing her a bit.

Just make sure you don’t cross over any boundaries, which generally means staying away from sexual innuendo (for now) or making fun of her in a harsh or nasty way.

Other than that, don’t be afraid to get a chuckle or two out of her so she’ll think of you as a potential partner instead of a friend she’ll NEVER have feelings for.

When you learn to set yourself apart from the other men dropping at her feet, you’re letting her know that you’re on EQUAL ground with her instead of turning into some spineless version of yourself.

You could even go as far as disagree with her (in a cool, casual, non-threatening way) if your opinion is truly different from hers. She’ll appreciate that you’re man enough to speak your mind rather than just shut your trap out of fear of “displeasing” her or some BS like that.

It’s a bit tricky at first to find the perfect balance of being a nice guy and being a jerk.

But only experience can teach you how to find this point where you’re cool and level-headed enough not be intimidated by her beauty, but also sweet enough to show her what a great guy you are.

Once you’re in the zone (not the “friend zone” that is), you’ll have no problem triggering all the right emotions to become irresistible in her eyes.
