Hope all is well. I am very thankful to have found this forum. I have enjoyed the post that I have read. They have all been very timely and helpful. You wouldn't believe.
I belong to a few other forums as well. The following post, from one of these forums, caught my eye, so I read it. It's a tough subject on the surface but as you look into it deeper it is so very straight forward and simple.
This was the post from "Rich."
Hello to everyone,
I'm just a newbie in practicing the law of attraction and I have intended to learn more about it. I have been reading, researching and practicing all of its 'requirements' to make my desired reality a reality.
So far, I have experienced the alpha reflections and streams of beta reflections (people, ideas, resources), but no major windfall yet. Oh, yes, I'm convinced its coming to fruition soon.
One of the concrete example of people and resources coming to me to englighten me on the LoA is Steve's blog. I thank you for selflessly sharing your knowledge to readers like me.
One of my questions, that I hope you guys can help me is: How can I reconcile my belief in God with the LoA? Is it "un- Christian?"
There were many varied responses. This is what I wrote.
I struggled with same thing when I first saw "The Secret." I'm a P.K.(A Preacher's Kid for those that didn't know). I think that I understand the concept of God so much more now. When I view the movie I substitute God eveytime they say Universe. I substitute God everytime they mention The Secret. If you do that it is easy to see that The Bible has been teaching us the Law of Attraction(LOA) all along.
The creation story is the crux of LOA. The Bible says that God created the earth from a void. From nothing. God had a thought. "Let there be light. And there was light." God thought it, and it was.
Since God thought all of this into being, this leads then to the understanding that our whole existance in terms of the physical is all an illusion. Knowing this leads us to understand why "miracles" can happen. And thus knowing this we understand that "miracles" aren't miracles at all. We call them miracles because we choose to live in this physical world bound by rules and the only way to justify miracles is by labeling them as such.
We are extension of a Source Energy. Thus we are Source Energy ourselves. I still hesistate to call myself a God, but I do understand that within this illusion, I have the power to create my existance.
I was thinking just today about the Adam and Eve story. The reason they failed is because they looked outside of themselves for beauty, thus denying their own beauty. This is where we fail on a daily basis. We worry about the clothes we wear. We care about how people view us. Adam and Eve looked at the "forbidden fruit" and thought they needed it for some sort of self fulfillment when God warned them that all that they need is from within. Once they tried the "fruit" physicality became their reality. They saw their bodies and had to cover up. They felt fear for the first time.
Looking at the present day we see the same thing. People feel they have to hide their true selfs for fair of ridicule. And worst than that we deny the true self. I guess it is truly easier to believe in something that is physical and has a definite answer than to believe in the thoughts in our own minds. When are we going to learn?
This is just my opinion. Let me know what you think, "In Your Own Words."
P.S. There's a book I'm going to start soon called, "Jesus Taught It Too: The Early Roots Of The Law Of Attraction." As soon as I'm done, I'll give you my review.
You are truly a kindred spirit. Everytime I read one of your post, I get inspired. Just the other day I started thinking about writing a book. I had never thought about it before until then. And then I read your post. There really aren't any coincidences. I still have along way to go, and I'm still learning alot, but I'm encouraged to know that there are still good people like you sending out positive vibrations.
Thanks for being apart of my illusion,
Dexter, you are so very sweet. Thank you. I needed to read your message today too. LOL No, there are no coincidences.
I think writing a book is a wonderful idea and you should do it. You have that gut feeling. Go with it. I am new with the Law of Attraction, although since 2001 I have noticed things happening and dreams coming true. Now I have a goal and a focus and as circumstances unfold, it can be a bit scary. Okay, here it is. Don't back off, grab the opportunity.
I enjoy reading your posts. I know I will be learning a lot from you.
I'm seating in class for job training, this lady and myself are sharing. I have a great desire to have a Holistic Health and Wellness Ctr. She stated it will happen and suggested I read LOA.
The Secret is not a secret at all but it has enlighten me on the constellation working in harmony with mankind. We as christians perish for a lack of knowledge but regardless of the different philosophers and religion- the secret is biblical.
There was many quotes which were scripture. I would even say 80 percent. I just saw Proverbs. Some tidbits- renewing our minds, for a man is what he thinks, power is in the tongue, God reigns on the just as well as the unjust- this is why the unrighteous are able to command their morning. Whatever a man soweth he also will reap. It was much but the body of Christ as a whole has not experience the abundant life and sometime miss out due to religion and not having a relationship.
What is the secret recipe for not eating or eating less?
I can't not be obsessed about it. Tried it once, to avoid thinking about fasting, and it made me come home earlier from school when I was supposed to be doing homework. Usually, I can last all day at school, but I dread coming home. Today, for example, I ate nine medium-large buns. Coconut oil doesn't work. Flax seeds don't work. The mantras I come up with don't work. Eating more meals spread out doesn't work. I still overeat or get tired or distracted. Probiotics don't work.
Can somebody help and save me from this hole I'm stuck in?
If it makes any difference, I am vowing to go on another fast. I don't see any practicality in this until I come home from school tomorrow and see whether I eat or not. Tomorrow is Saturday, so my family will be going to a restaurant. A Chinese vegan restaurant. Last week, I was able to not eat at the restaurant by writing in my diary that I will kill myself if I ate again. It didn't last the second day but I am just grateful that I skipped the restaurant meal. I am not really going to kill myself, I was just desperate. Plus knowing that I will never kill myself makes me have to honor this not eating threat. I am a very optimistic and rational person, so there is no way I will attempt to kill myself.
Tomorrow is a special buffet at the restaurant with 100% more variety of food than normal buffets. I will definitely use my killing myself threat for the restaurant. I will just go there to hang out with old friends and still have a good time. Well, I am running out of ideas for how to not eat, and if the threat can help me not eat for one meal, I will use it. I have been dealing with this problem for years. Still the same old, same old. I am just grateful I only eat one meal a day usually, even though I feel I have overeaten during this one meal. I am beginning to have spleen and stomach problems, confirmed by more than one healer.
I really don't know what to say to make myself not eat for an extended amount of time. They do say being addicted to food has the same neural pathways as being addicted to heroine. I am just going to end with an I love you all. :D kisses, hugs, gazing in to your eyes calmly, giving you a shoulder rub, purrs on your lap, head butts, and kisses again for an hour
Usually what happens after I have eaten is that I will have nothing to do. I just don't get how I always come home to get wasted. So I have nothing to do right now. Kind of passive at home, or half passive at least. Wonder what I am passionate for that could occupy me instead of food, food all the time. Well, I can think of meditation, lecture videos, cleaning my room, brain games, vocabulary, books, and piano. I bet if I make a really fancy to-do list like they do at a therapy facility or school, I would follow it. Just pretend that the activity is a must. But I can't put too much down. Maybe no more than ten things per day. Oh I just remembered something. I planned to exercise for fifty minutes after school everyday. I can't believe I forgot. And I plan to watch a College Algebra lecture. I run out of time at the end of day because of food. So I plan to do a to-do list that gives no time for food. The activities are official.
Went to a mall, made a wish in the wishing fountain to fast. We will see whether this works. Maybe I don't have to use the suicide threat at all. While I was making my wish, I was defining all the boundaries in my head like liquid only, from then on, until forever, but then I thought what about probiotics? So I was still defining the boundaries when I walked a while away.
It is 2:50 am right now. I don't have to get up until four and a half hours later. I always get up in the middle of the night, use my iPad, then fall back to sleep. Yesterday I fell asleep, because the College Algebra lecture I was watching was kind of dull. I don't think this should be an excuse. I think I should tough through it. I am just surprised I only slept not even five hours.
I have to admit that I have annoying jock itch that doesn't go away with ointment or spray medications. I wonder whether this can go away with fasting, maybe from strengthened immune system.
There is this celebrity within my organization that fasted for 25 years already, and last night my parents were talking about how she always wore the same thing, because she never sweats.
Here is my plan for the morning until I have to go to school: not fall back asleep again. 1. College Algebra lecture. 2. Play dual n-back. 3. Play Flags. 4. Read my news blog emails--PsyBlog. 5. Learn vocab from a book. 6. School. 7. Come home. 8. Shower. 9. Clean my room for the party Sunday. 10. Go to restaurant.
How long are you planning to fast for? I don't know if you said. Maybe I missed it. At any rate, I'm planning to do another fast. Last time I made it to 10 days I believe, but this time I would like to fast to completion; however, my lifestyle, while not busy, might be /slightly/ too strenuous, so if it gets to be too much, I might have to alternate a juice day or two in there. We'll see.
And to answer your question. When you feel it necessary. Idk what you're fasting for, but I am fasting for my health and quality of life. It's not an ideal situation. I'm kind of desperate. But it gives me the motivation to continue. A blend of the both of us might be ideal!
To answer your question, I am planning to fast forever. I did already say this, but not in a complete sentence. Thanks for your advice about fasting being a necessity. Anyway, the reason that I think I can fast forever is that I know a woman who has fasted for 25 years and still going strong. My own dad fasted for a year and half. My grandma fasted five months.
Still, my idea is kind of far-fetched seeing that I kind of wanted to eat seven minutes ago. Well, now I'm better for some reason. I was just going to go on Curezone and say how tough it is, but now the craving has disappeared.
I still had to sleep extra three hours in the morning after staying up after waking up in the middle of the night. I just didn't think I would be able to read with this tired feeling in my eyes from not sleeping since 2 am.
Well, it is nice meeting you. I'm not sure whether I would be a good fasting buddy if I can't hold myself accountable. We will see what kind of person I really am and whether I'd be a good fasting buddy in five hours, when I go back home from school. Wonder whether that wishing fountain did anything to me.
I am just worried what would happen if I ate again today. That would be the low point of my day everyday. I am fairly optimistic until I eat. The amazing thing is I'm still optimistic after a while after the eating episode.
I am just going to think of taking a shower after school. That'll keep me occupied. Then clean the cat litter and my room. Wishing fountain, please work. I can feel its law of attraction.
This is a necessity most of all to keep me happy. There are a bunch of other reasons like spiritual, physical, or mental, but I just want to be happy. Not sure whether this means anything to me or will make me fast. Probably not, since I tried tons of thoughts like this, tons of reasons to fast, and they were all to no avail.
I am sick and tired of my habit of eating. Why do I eat? Why won't I fast? (Trying to get my anger going to motivate myself. Before I am about to eat, just be angry, haha. Anger has its uses.)
So I will try the anger thing before I'm about to eat, and also, someone privately messaged me, telling me that the secret recipe to fasting is to face and live the pain until it no longer has power over us. There is the pain of learning.
I have resisted responding to your messages for a long time.
I think that you are obsessed about eating and fasting. We have talked about this before....IMO, you are replacing some strong emotion by eating. As far as I can tell from your posts is that you did not have a desirable relationship with a friend. That may be one reason, but you need to examine this for yourself. First thing you can do is to post on "Relationship" forum and ask "Soulfulsurvivor" to give you some pointers.
After that if you can get professional help that would help you for long term. You are young and will rebound from this if you take small steps.
I personally think you should not fast till you solve some of these issues. After you solve your issue of eating you can cleanse your body with all types of cleanses including fasting.
I feel for you. I know you will conquer this issue.
Also called “Lemurian Seed Crystals” or "Lemurian Star Seeds", Lemurian Quartz Crystals were originally found in Brazil. Metaphysical Legend states that there was once an advanced ancient civilization called Lemuria, similar to Atlantis but more spiritually developed and peaceful. As the end of their time on Earth was coming to an end, the Lemurians programmed these crystals to teach their messages of oneness and healing - messages that would be revealed when the energy on Earth was ready to receive them. The Lemurians then planted (or “seeded”) the Lemurian Crystals, encoded with their ancient knowledge and wisdom, to be found centuries later by us.
Lemurian Crystals have a distinct appearance. Look carefully at a Lemurian Crystal and you will see horizontal striations or grooves, like “bar codes,” on one or more sides. Commonly, the sides of a Lemurian Crystal will have alternating striated and smooth faces. Lemurian Quartz Crystals are often found in the shape of a Laser wand, where the faces at the tip of a Lemurian Crystal are small and gently taper in size from base to tip.
Lemurian Seed crystals connect with the crown and solar star chakra. These are master crystals within the crystal kingdom. It is believed that in the last days of Lemuria, special seed crystals were placed where crystalline growth was expected to form within the Earth, enabling them to transmit frequencies to other crystals that were created within the Earth. These crystals resonate with energies of love, unity and equality. They align themselves and are attracted to those who are endeavouring to anchor energies to help the planet at this time.
The legend continues to state that Lemurian Seed Crystals are planted in a grid pattern over the surface of the Earth and beyond, to other stars and dimensions. When you connect to a Lemurian Crystal and the energy it contains, you are also connecting to this grid of associated energies from the Earth, the stars, and beyond.
These crystals are programmed with the Lemurian consciousness vibration. Working with these stones instils feelings of the emotional and spiritual awareness of the Lemurians. Connecting with these crystals can open up the heart and create a deep emotional healing and allow you to connect more to your true self.
Lemurian Seed crystals generate a very feminine or yin energy. They act to open the energy of the soul and provide a bridge to higher frequencies, creating a higher level of consciousness. They instil feelings of harmony and ease. The energies they emit are of pure love, helping you feel at one with yourself and others.
Holding a Lemurian seed crystal in your right hand while you walk around and encircle an individual, property or and object creates a circle of light and protection. They sooth and nurture and can benefit everyone and are helpful support for healing work. They help you attune to those higher energies and higher planes of existence.

How interesting. As a practicioner of Tai Chi and martial arts I believe this would compliment what I do very well indeed. I have always wondered whether anyone in particular can use certain crystals or are some better for certain people than others ? Also please feel free to brouse any of my free tai chi recordings that at on u-tube under a search for Sensei Paul Tavares.

Okay. The Ragweed season is on and I am getting all the usual symptoms of
2. Runny and Itchy nose
3. Itchy eyes
4. Scratchy throat
I am trying EFT tapping by saying even though I have all these symptoms, I love and accept myself. I forgive myself for having these symtoms as they have a purpose too. I am making all these affirmations but the symtoms are not going away. I am waking up in the night with runny nose. Claritin helps just a little bit maybe.
I have been tapping on all the EFT points. Is there are reason why its not working? I really want to overcome this the natural way and not the claritin way.
Any ideas and what else can I do.
PS: I am ragweed allergy sufferer for 10+ years now.
I have been using EFT on myself for several years and I find it is great for some things, even miraculous, but it does not work on everything and is not necessarily permanent. I see you are quite good at it.
I too had what we call "hayfever" this last season and tapping did not help much. I am very encouraged however by results from another non-drug device called the Magnetic Pulser by Sota Instruments. There is a forum here on it call Dr.Bob Beck and also one called electro-medicine.
This last year was my first (I am 61) for hayfever although I have always had a coughing problem triggered by organic dust. If I cleared anything in my garage or did some outdoor gardening I would get a tickle in my throat that would trigger coughing everytime I took a breath. It would take many minutes to go away, coughing all the time and only EFT would settle it down. I am guessing this is linked to the hayfever problem.
Using the Magnetic Pulser all over my head and neck about 50 times I noticed a few days later after doing a major cleanup of the garage that I did not cough once! Amazing. The pulser has also had other beneficial effects too, I recommend you get one and use it extensively.

A little late for a reply (2014), but perhaps someone will still benefit from it. One thing I find as a Professional Stress Reduction Facilitator is when using EFT & experimenting ~ the key element folks tend to forget in their statements is to release the emotional likeness that may be occurring to cause the onset of disharmony. In allergies, be sure to release allergic reactions to people, persons & things on the emotional level as the emotions cause biological cascade (histamine release) & symptoms. For instance if a person feels 'allergic' to another persons personality, they can cause a histamine release in their own body. If a person needs to act 'COLD' toward someone to get them to leave them alone... they generally take on a physical cold. Once these implications are cleared & the mind is at peace or at least neutral vs. 'resistant' the energy is released vs. held and wellness can continue to ensue. Peace & blessings
I once suffered the afflictions of Ragweed Allergy. My allergist diagnosed me with Oral Allergy Syndrome, which is a fancy way of saying my body responds to ragweed with a scratchy throat. This allergy prevented me from eating raw fruits, save citrus, and raw vegetables.
Anyway, I bring good tidings. For the majority of my life (ages 7 through 20) I suffered from ragweed allergy. It wasn't untill I was 19 that i saw an allergist. Why wait so long? Several reasons, mostly because I was satisfied with a one-sided meat-eating diet. Little did i know that such a diet prevented me from enjoying the fruits of the Sun.
The solution: fast. After reading Arnold Ehret's "Mucusless Diet Healing System" I decided to take Ehret's advice and begin a change in diet by doing a simple two-day fast. That is, consuming nothing but water for two whole days. The issue lied in Ehret's other suggestion of breaking a two-day fast with one kind of fresh fruit (my enemy at the time). When the time came, i decided I would test this fasting business by eating the fruit that gives the worst reaction: banana. So, apprehensively, tentavely, I tore off a piece of banana and chewed that piece for two minutes. Swallow. Wait. Interesting, no response. Now a bigger piece. After my second piece (that is one more piece than I can usually handle) I began to feel the sensation rise in my throat. So, I grabbed my local honey, and swallowed a teaspoon. After that, i was able to consume an entire bundle of bananas!
Considering that was not my first time trying the local honey therapy, I definitely agree that fasting is nature's cure to most, if not all, bodily ailments.
Unfortunately, I am not a long-time member and cannot post any links.

The following seven affirmations
and short prayers, come from three
books by Marianne Wiliamson: ILLUMINATA, EVERYDAY GRACE, and
ILLUMINATED PRAYERS. I recommend all
three books to my friends at CureZone.
At a later date, I'll post some
more affirmations / prayers from
"Dear God, please remove from my
mind my sense that I'm right and other people are wrong; my temptation to feel contempt toward
those I disagree with."
"Dear God, please memd my broken
relationships, for I do not know how. Show me their innocence, and
please show them mine."
"May my mind and heart be pure and
true, and may I not deviate from the
things of goodness. May I see the
love and innocence in all mankind,
behind the masks we all wear, and the illusions of this worldly plane."
"The mystical nature of who I really
am is known to You, Dear God, but not to me. Let me see revealed the
depth and power of my true self."
"Dear God, I place in your hands my
relationship with ______________.
May our relationship serve you. May
we see each other through the eyes
of love, that only Light might enter
"May angel's wings be lent to me,
that I might fly above the noise and
turmoil of the world. With every
moment's flight, may something beautiful be revealed to me, and become a part of who I am."
"May this space, our home, be a sacred dwelling for those who live here. May those who visit feel the
peace we have received from you. May
darkness not enter. May the light of
God shield this space from harm.
May the angels bring their peace here, and use our space as a haven
of light. May all grow strong in this place of healing, our sanctuary
from the loudness of the world."
Your affirmations were beautiful, ther was only one thing that got me is the word PLEASE when praying to Father. To my knowledge is'nt the word PLEASE unsure of your request, as I know when you pray you ask for what it is, then as you are praying you know that you have already received it.
Understand me I'm not downing what you have written AT ALL PLEASE BELIEVE THAT.
God bless you and I love ya
I Apologize It's half of my thought but I have to go I'm at work lol.
