Law of Attraction in Action

What are you vibrating today?

Now there's a question, and one I'll now be asking myself every chance I get. See, I've been interested in the metaphysical for as long as I can remember, ever since I found a book my Dad was reading called Bring out the Magic in your Mind by Al Koran. Since then I've studied popular psychology books and any number of mind power tomes, most of which have been really useful in changing my perceptions about myself and life in general. But the Law of Attraction is something which really grabs my interest. Theoretically, I get it, but putting it into practice is something else.

So, as one of my goals for 2010 I intend to study the concept more deeply to really get to grips with it. And guess what, my intention has already born fruit. Yesterday I discovered Michael Losier, I was going to say by chance, but understanding how intention works, I know that's not the case. In all my previous Internet searches on the subject I've never been drawn to him, but then I found a couple of audio downloads where Michael talks about the Law of Attraction. Wowee! I learned more about putting the Law into practice in an hour than the last couple of years. Michael has a no-nonsense, practical approach which you can start using right this minute. It's all about the vibrations we're sending out into the universe which are either positive or negative. These vibrations influence what we're attracting into our lives. Michael urges us to regularly check in with ourselves and ask what vibration we're sending out, because we can be sure to attract right back more of the very same.

If you're interested in the Law of Attraction, and especially in its practical application in your life, I would urge you to check out Michael's website, especially the articles page. His book The Law of Attraction is also available on Amazon.

Happy Vibrating!

Festive Greetings

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours started off in a disappointing way, when a trip we had planned to the south of France was cancelled courtesy of the Eurostar fiasco. Intending to be away, we didn't have any festivities planned, but the phone didn't stop ringing with calls from friends with last minute invites for us to join them over the holidays. It really lifted our spirits and reminded us of the true message of the season. It's not about overseas holidays, gifts and eating too much (all of which I love, don't get me wrong) but about the people who care about us - really care about us. We're blessed with wonderful, fabulous friends. Extra-special people who enrich our lives. So it's been a very happy Christmas in the Jones's household and to paraphrase Charles Dickens I'd like to send my friends a special message - God bless you, every one.

Sad day for Togs as Terry says goodbye...

Terry Wogan signed off his breakfast show for the last time today after delivering a wonderfully poignant speech that left me in tears.

I remember listening to Terry as a young newly-wed, far from home, missing my family dreadfully, and his unique brand of humour often cheered me up. My late dad was a fan and we'd share stories over the phone about what Terry had said that day, laughing together until we could barely speak. Terry's banter helped when I lost my dad, my grandparents, and other loved ones, including my much beloved dog, Barney.

In Terry's goodbye speech he mentioned that his listeners were like friends, and strangely that's how he felt to me. A friend. His lovely wit, his cheery voice, the sheer lunacy of the stories he told.

This morning I was late for work as I sat in my car listening to the last few minutes of Terry's show. It was freezing cold - the coldest day of the year - but hot tears slid down my face as he gave his speech. He said he was honoured to be "Someone that you're close enough to laugh with, to poke fun at and occasionally when the world just seemed a little too cruel to shed a tear with. And the years together have not only been a pleasure but a privilege."

Right back at ya, Terry.
