I Feel Pretty film & the Law of Attraction

We just went to see Amy Schumer’s new comedy, I Feel Pretty, which is touching and funny, and I highly recommend it.

The premise of the film is that an ordinary, pudgy woman, Renee, of just average looks, wishes to be breathtakingly beautiful.

Renee falls off her bike at Soul Cycle, hits her head, and when she awakens, she looks in the mirror and sees the beauty she always hoped to become.

Suddenly infused with newfound chutzpah and confidence, Renee goes after her dream job as the receptionist of a high-end beauty company. In spite of the fact that she looks nothing like the job description (young, hip, thin, dressed in cutting-edge fashion), she lands the job.

Then she pursues a relationship with a man she meets in line at the dry cleaner and in spite of himself, he falls for her wit, charm, and over-the-top self-confidence.

All of this is happening because Renee truly believes she has become this amazing, irresistible beauty.

Unlike most people who say: “I’ll believe when I see it,” Renee is unintentionally practicing true Law of Attraction which says “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

And she practices “Living As If” by going for her big dream job by changing her hair, clothes and, most importantly, her belief and attitude about what she can accomplish in the world.

While the critics didn’t love this film, I found it to be fun, funny, inspiring, and uplifting.

Plus, don’t forget that if you want to be a pleasure puppy, laughter is a great oxytocin builder!

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

TAXES and the Law of Attraction

For more than three decades I have been utilizing the Law of Attraction with mostly great results…. AND, I am still always surprised when my biggest core issue – poverty consciousness – POPS back up.

And, it always does right before TAX DAY.

Even though I know TAX DAY is coming, and I know we will be writing two big checks, for the past week I’ve been having that awful sinking feeling knowing how that is going to deplete our bank balances.

My poverty consciousness gets fully triggered! (My key issue is “fear of becoming a bag lady.”)

So, yesterday, I consciously chose to raise my abundance frequency and get back into what I know to be true and did the following:

First, I reminded myself that I already have more than enough, in every area of my life, and I have enough friends and family that becoming a bag lady could never happen.

Second, I did some EFT tapping.

Third, I went out on a long gratitude walk and focused on putting attention on my heart, and feeling tons of gratitude for everything as well as everyone in my life and everything I was seeing on my walk. (This included feeling gratitude for the fact that our income requires us to pay lots of taxes.)

Remembering what I already know and choosing to consciously raise my abundance frequency made a huge difference.

And finally, I remembered two essential magic phrases of my friend Wayne Dyer:

1) Don’t believe every thought that you have.

2) Don’t think “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Know that you will SEE it when you believe it.

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Spring Cleaning Your Heart (and Home)

The last few days I have been on fire with Spring cleaning. Suddenly, I am filled with energy and motivation to clear out clutter, clean up old messes, wipe down the baseboards, throw out and give away things that aren’t needed… and it feels great.

As part of your Spring Cleaning to enhance your love life, my friend and Feng Shui expert Shawne Mitchell suggests enlivening the Marriage and Relationship section of your home.

To figure out where this is, stand in your front door (facing into your home) and locate the far right corner of the house (or of your bedroom) and this is it!

Not only does this section represent all love relationships, on a spiritual level it also represents your relationship to yourself.
To enliven this space, add artwork that depicts love and romance, or add pairs of things such as two lovebirds, or swans or any animals that mate, like dolphins.

Include fresh flowers, candles, and crystals (you can hang them from the ceiling on red or pink ribbons.)

For the romance corner of my office (see photo) I’ve also included my favorite photo of Brian and me.

While I was sorting and cleaning through a variety of items, I began to think about emotional items I could be clearing away as well.

Ask yourself questions such as:

What psychological clutter or negative emotions do I need to let go of?

Who do I need to forgive?

Who do I need to reach out to?

Who can I share more love with?

Clearing and cleaning the clutter of our hearts, minds, and home is a profound and beautiful way to welcome in this new season of hope and rebirth.

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

The Power of Daydreaming!

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about advanced manifesting techniques and in the process remembered that some of the EASIEST manifesting comes from daydreaming….

When you are daydreaming, you are letting your imagination run wild, fantasizing about something that feels good, but without any strong attachment or need to “make it happen.” There is no “want” involved, just the sweetness of playing with your imagination.

Let me give you an example: For many years I have often had the thought, “Someday, I’d really like to visit Thailand.” I have never actively sought to make this happen, but when the thought arises, I close my eyes and imagine that I am visiting Thailand and having a fabulous time there. A few days ago my speaking agent called to tell me that I will soon be offered a speaking engagement in Thailand and I am now waiting to finalize the details.

How crazy is that? By indulging in daydreaming, I manifested something wonderful.

This doesn’t replace intentional manifesting, which I still do all the time and I find daydreaming a powerful way to add on to my practice.

Speaking of which – I have a special gift for you today to learn ADVANCED MANIFESTING TECHNIQUES in a free webinar with me and my dear friend Christy Whitman so you can make 2018 your best year ever! Christy and I share advanced techniques for tapping into the unlimited abundance of the Universe and effortlessly attracting your heart’s deepest desires. You can take any unsatisfying or unhappy area of your life and turn it around quickly to a world where your life is unlimited.

The LAST Workshop You Will Ever Need

What is the source of your greatest disappointment, frustration or emotional pain?

Do you self-sabotage or consistently procrastinate and fail to reach your dreams?

Are you pushing away the love you desire?

Do you beat yourself up for not being a better person, parent, provider or achiever?

Is it that you are stuck and can’t figure out your purpose?

Or, you know your purpose and just can’t make it happen?

Perhaps childhood abuse is still haunting your adult life?

Are you a secretly angry or even a passive-aggressive people-pleaser?

You CAN change! By participating in The Shadow Process, created more than 25 years ago by my sister, the late Debbie Ford, and now led by her hand-picked successors, this 2½-day transformational workshop will truly be the last workshop you’ll ever need.

The Shadow Process helps you uncover the beliefs and stories that have held you back from living the life you want. It provides a supportive and nurturing space so that you’ll feel safe enough to explore the things that have been hidden from even you. You’ll be fascinated by what you discover and astounded by what happens when you bring the light of awareness to anything that has been hidden in the dark.

By doing The Shadow Process, you will feel lighter. Like a weight has literally been lifted off your back, you’ll feel like everything you have been carrying around for years is gone. After this roto-rooter for your soul, you will feel and see possibility where you couldn’t before!

Plus, you will dance. Okay, so I might not be able to promise that the whole weekend will be a “dance party,” but by the end of The Shadow Process your soul will be dancing. Even if you don’t think you’re a “dancer”, by the end of The Shadow Process you will feel tuned up and turned on. You will feel free to let yourself be seen, enjoy…and dance!

Don’t miss this opportunity to transform your life.

Dreams Really DO Come True

I love weddings!!! And, I especially love weddings that we get to officiate.

Being surrounded by a loving bride and groom (and all of their friends and family) in a beautiful setting filled with magic, music, flowers, fun and fabulous food is the perfect recipe for joy.

This past weekend, Brian and I had the honor of officiating the wedding of our friends Ann and Dennis (both in their 60’s).

We met Ann a little more than two years ago when she joined us in Bali for our Manifest Your Greatest Unmet Dream transformational journey to focus on her desire to meet her soulmate.

Part of that process included her writing a “Letter From the Future” that would describe how she would feel once she was with her beloved. In this letter, the assignment is to “fast forward” way into the future (when your desire has been fulfilled) and describe in detail how you are feeling in that moment.

Ann incorporated part of this letter in her vows and I am happy to share this with you here:

I am safe in my beloved’s arms. My heart is safe with him and his heart is safe with me. He is funny, strong and smart. And he has the most beautiful blue eyes. Above all, he is a kind man with the soul of an adventurer and the courage of a warrior. He is a wonderful man, honest, loyal and faithful. He loves me and demonstrates that love every day. He is generous of spirit and heart and genuinely cares about his fellow souls in human form. I feel safe with my beloved and grateful and happy for every moment we have. This is a man whose face lights up when I walk in the room. I know I have come home.

We are thrilled that Ann and Dennis have found each other and are now husband and wife, and it was an honor to play a role in their coming together.

Whatever your “unmet dream” is, write your Letter From The Future. First, date the letter for a time in the future that is reasonable for you to fulfill this dream. Then fill it with as much feeling as possible, and if you wish, email it to me at arielleford@nullgmail.com.

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Arielle

Liz Gilbert on Love and Purpose

As many of you know, I am a big Elizabeth Gilbert fan. I recently fell in love with her even more when I read her very inspiring and heartwarming Facebook post about her view on what our “purpose” in life really is.

If you love and want MORE Liz, follow her on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/GilbertLiz/

Dear Ones:

Can I ask you a question?

Do you believe that you’re supposed to have a purpose in life?

I’m guessing that you do believe this. Most people believe this.

I’m also guessing that this belief brings you a huge amount of anxiety.

Because, it’s a really fucking stressful belief, if you think about it for even one minute.

Here is something you will hear “inspirational” people say a lot:

“You were born for a reason. You have a special destiny. Your job as a human being is to find out what your special destiny is, and then to use your special destiny to help change the world.”

Does that statement make you anxious? Because it makes me anxious as hell.

Because how will I KNOW what my reason for living is? How will YOU know? What if I FAIL at my special destiny? What if YOU fail? What if you CAN’T FIGURE IT OUT? What if you WASTE YOUR WHOLE LIFE? What if you go in the WRONG DIRECTION? What if you LEAVE NO IMPACT? What if you live and die a full lifespan on this earth, and you NEVER DID ANYTHING IMPORTANT? What if you thought that your reason for living was ONE THING, and then you found out you were TOTALLY MISTAKEN? What if you turn out to be INSIGNIFICANT?

WHAT IF YOU MAKE NO OFFERING TO THE WORLD???!!!

Here’s what I think — and after what I’ve been through in the last year and a half, I think it now than ever.

You do have a purpose. But it’s probably not what you think. Your only purpose here is to be Loved.

That’s it. And I spell “Loved” with a capital L, because I’m talking about being Loved by creation itself. I’m talking about knowing that you are Loved by divinity, that you are Loved by the universe itself, you are made out of Love, and that you will return into Love…and that this Love does not give one single solitary shit what you do or don’t do with your life; It just LOVES you.

There is no part of yourself so dark or so flawed that Love cannot find it and surround it and Love it.

You know that part of you who is ambitious and thirsty and miserable? Love has already found that part of you, and it Loves you, anyway.

You know that part of you who is angry and bitter and depressed? Love has already found that part of you, and it Loves you anyway.

You know that part of you who is jealous and mean and lazy and stupid and hurtful and suspicious and addicted and a liar and a loser? Love has already found that part of you, and it Loves you, anyway.

LOVE DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU DO; IT JUST LOVES YOU.

There is nothing you could ever become — or not become — that Love cannot love.
And if you’re wondering what your offering to this world is supposed to be, then you’ve got it all wrong: You are not here to be a freaking offering. That would make you an object of sacrifice, and that’s not what you’re supposed to be. This world is not a sacrificial altar; it is a GIFT. You are not an offering to this world: THIS WORLD IS AN OFFERING TO YOU.
Every single thing here is a gift to you because you are Loved.

You don’t have to pay rent in this world — in the form of labor or desperation or sacrifice or striving — in order to be Loved. You do not owe ANYTHING to the world, in order to be Loved. You are not required to leave an impact here, in order to be Loved. You do not have to hustle to be Loved. YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A JOB HERE TO BE LOVED. You are a gift. Even if you’re just sitting on your couch, year after year, eating nachos and farting, you are a fucking gift. You are LOVED. LOVE LOVES YOU SO MUCH.

Love loves you — pure and simple. No matter what they did to you, and no matter what you did to them, you are Loved. PERIOD.

Do you hear me?

I know that this is a radical thing to believe — and it goes against every message you have ever been taught. To dare to believe that you are created by Love, for Love, and to be Loved (and that this is ENOUGH) is the most outrageous stance you could ever take in your life.

You don’t need to change the world. It’s too big a job, and “changing the world” assumes that you know what the master plan for the world is supposed to be, anyhow, and you don’t. You never will.

You will never know your purpose. The other day I was walking down the street and I saw a man on a ladder, cleaning a window, and his ladder looked a little wobbly, so I steadied the ladder for him. For all I know, that moment could’ve been what I was born for. Who can say?

This doesn’t mean you have to be complacent. If you want to do work in the world, do it. If you want to be an activist, be one. If you want to help people, help them. But you don’t OWE it. You owe nothing to this world in return for the mystery of having been born. You are not a debtor here. You are a GIFT here. And this world — in return — is an offering of Love to YOU.

Do you have a pet? Look at your pet right now. What is your pet doing? What is your dog or cat or fish or bird doing, right this moment?

Is it worrying about its DESTINY? Is it concerned that it isn’t CHANGING THE WORLD? Is it trying to figure out what its OFFERING TO HUMANITY is? And if your dog or cat doesn’t change the world, has it FAILED at life? If your dog or cat doesn’t make an impact on the lives of other dogs and cats, is it unworthy of Love?

Of course not.

Your dog or cat doesn’t need to do anything but just sit there in order to be worthy of Love. It’s just a creature made out of Love — an experiment of Creation — and that’s all it has to be.

Not unlike your pet, you are also an experiment of creation — a spasm of God-ness, a curious compilation of matter and awareness, an energy made out of a mystery. And that’s all you ever have to be, to be perfect and to be LOVED.

It is HILARIOUS to me that you still think there is anything wrong with you.

It’s ABSURD that I still sometimes think there is something wrong with me.

It’s just total nonsense. It is to laugh.

All you have to do to be here — to make this world become an offering to YOU — is to start knowing that you are Loved.

When you realize this truth, that will be world-changing enough.

Believe me. Try it on, and you’ll see.

You don’t even have to believe it, for it to be true. Love can even Love the part of you who doesn’t believe in Love. But for the record, it IS true. You are so goddamn Loved, it’s freaking insane.

I just wanted to tell you that today.

And I love you all so, so, so, so, so, so, so much.

Liz

I hope this missive on LOVE lights you up, expands your heart, puts sparkle in your soul and maybe even blows your mind.

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Arielle

Can Prayer Save Your Life?

Although she passed away five years ago, my sister, the beloved spiritual teacher Debbie Ford, has left a powerful legacy with her new book, YOUR HOLINESS.

Through world-renowned medium, James Van Praagh, I received a clear message that she wanted to share with the world a life-changing prayer book. I had no idea that she had written such a book, but once James shared the messages, a quick search unearthed this beautiful, enlightening, and inspiring work.

What you may not know about Debbie and WHY she wrote this book:

Decades ago, Debbie was a drug addict.

At a certain point she knew that if she didn’t get help, she was going to die.

On the tenth day of her 4th rehab center, she was getting ready to run away in search of drugs. Instead, she went into a bathroom, with a very dirty floor, she got on her hands and knees and prayed, and God responded and gave her the strength to get sober.

In this recently discovered book, Debbie combines motivational prayers with deeply personal stories about her own spiritual journey. She translates her experience into a practical path for transformation.

This book is very prescriptive and will lead you back to your inner wisdom and Divine Self. This book is for anyone who yearns to be closer to God, and/or suffers with hard or soft addictions, self-loathing, self-sabotage, and also anyone with a desire to be deeply connected to their highest and true divine self.

In this book Debbie writes:

“What you are seeking at the deepest level exists inside of you, in the quietude of your own inner world, in the privacy of your own sweet heart. So now it’s your responsibility, your holy responsibility, to encode your consciousness with thoughts, feelings and images that will support you in creating the perfect internal environment to cultivate a deep and intimate relationship with the one you call God. This is the force that loves you, cheers for you and wants it all for you. In a world where love leaves as quickly as it comes, you can rest now, knowing that you have found a love that will never leave you, never misguide you, and never ever let you down. My advice, dear friend, is take great care of that Love. It will give you everything you’ve been looking for.”

At a time of such uncertainty and suffering, Debbie’s words ground us in the here and now with its timeless and empowering message of relentless love and strength.

When you buy the book, you will receive amazing bonuses, including a very deep and personal video interview I recently did with her (via James Van Praagh), audio’s of her meditations, and more.

Einstein’s Theory of LOVE!

I am super excited to share with you something my amazing soulmate, Brian, turned me on to: A letter Albert Einstein sent to his daughter about love.

“When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.

I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.

There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us. This universal force is LOVE.

When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe, they forgot the most powerful unseen force.

Love is Light that enlightens those who give and receive it.

Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others.

Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness.

Love unfolds and reveals.

For love, we live and die.

Love is God and God is Love.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will. To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.

After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.

Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet. However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.

When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life. I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer!”

Your father,

Albert Einstein

While Einstein is best known for his theory of relativity, this letter might just be his most important missive.

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Arielle

Take INSPIRED Action to make Dreams Come True

Whether manifesting your next dream career, new home, your soulmate (or whatever), a key component involves taking inspired action. Sometimes that means just trying something new and small, other times it means taking a GIANT LEAP OF FAITH and going for it.

More than 30 years ago, when I was living in South Florida, I had one of the worst days of my life.  I was blindsided when I went to work and got fired.  I never saw it coming.  My ego was deeply bruised and I was in a state of shock. As I began to think about “what’s next,” I realized that a part of me yearned to live in Los Angeles.  A city I had only briefly visited once. Within a few weeks, with less than $1,000, two suitcases, and very few contacts, I moved to L.A.

Was it scary?  You bet!

And, it turned out to be the best thing I ever did.  My entire life is what it is today because I was brave enough to follow my inner yearning.

What’s next for you when it comes to making your dreams come true?

I see a lot of people falling into the trap of postponing fun and adventure until after they meet their soulmate, reasoning that then they’ll have someone to share the adventure with. I once coached a man who loved whales. He finally decided to take a kayak trip with a bunch of strangers so he could have the experience of seeing whales up close. Well, he not only saw the whales, he ended up meeting his soulmate who just happened to be kayaking right next to him.

I know several couples that met on trips to foreign lands where they never expected to find romance. Vivian was from Boston; Mike was from Minneapolis. They met in Greece on a group tour. They’ve now been happily married for 15 years.

Sometimes the act of taking a bold step or following your heart’s desire actually leads you to the arms of your beloved, or your dream job, or the fulfillment of a lifelong pursuit.

Although you can’t control the exact day, place, and time your dream will come true, you can increase your odds significantly by being actively involved in your own life. This often means pursuing interests that you’ve put on the back burner. Whatever you’ve been waiting for, this is the time to do it. If you love tennis, but haven’t picked up a racquet in years, join a tennis club or sign up for some lessons. If you daydream about taking nature hikes, go on a guided tour at a nearby state park, or make it a point to stop by the beach or other recreational area after work. If you’re an avid reader, join a book club.

Look at it this way: What’s the worst that could happen if you decide to start actively pursuing your interests and passions? You’ll probably end up making yourself happier, healthier, and more intellectually fit. You will also most likely meet some interesting people, and you’ll be broadcasting your unique tastes and preferences to the Universe even more clearly.

Remember the Law of Attraction states:  “We attract to us the people, places, and experiences that match our state of being.”  When your actions are driven from a place of emptiness or lack of fulfillment, it’s quite possible you will only attract more of the same. It’s important to trust that things will work out. Take action when the signs are there to take action, and don’t feel pressured to act when the inspiration isn’t there.

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Arielle
