Making Magic: It’s easier than you think

I was blessed to learn about the powers and magic of manifesting on September 12, 1984.  My life changed that day and since then I have devoted my life to mastering the art and science of what we now call The Law of Attraction.

 

Every time I manifest something (which is usually at least once a day) I am still delighted and surprised that it worked!

 

Sometimes my desires are met in mere minutes, other times it can take weeks or even months, but eventually, always, my desires are almost always met with what I asked for, or I get something better.

 

The fastest thing I ever manifested was a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie.  I was at a conference, it was during lunch, and I got up to go to the buffet, hunting for this specific cookie.  There wasn’t one, and there had never been one on the buffet.

 

When I got back to my seat, my friend Lisa Nichols, walked up to me and said “Arielle, would you like this gluten free chocolate chip cookie?” (Of course, I said yes.)

 

The longest it ever took me to manifest something was when I wanted to change jobs. I had a great job, it paid well, and it wasn’t overly demanding but I was totally bored with it.

 

And, I didn’t know what I wanted to do next.

 

What I did know was this:

 

I desired to wake up every day feeling excited and happy to have a new position that was creative, fulfilling, that I could do from home, that was well-paying with excellent company benefits, and that I would be using all my skill sets and working with like-minded people.

 

I had no idea of where this position could be found since I didn’t even know what the position was.

 

However, I completely trusted that not only did the perfect job exist, but that IT would find ME.

 

Every day, for more than a year, I sat at my desk for several minutes while I held on to my old giant Rolodex filled with the names and phone numbers of the thousands of people I had met over the years.  Using my imagination, while focused on my heart and deep feelings of gratitude for my new career path, I thanked the Universe for arranging my new work.

 

I never doubted that this job would appear and I continued to work at my old job, and provided the highest quality creativity and results to my employers.

 

One day, more than a year into this daily practice, I got a call asking me to appear on an interview show to discuss The Soulmate Secret. The interviewer and I became friendly and had several other calls.  I pitched her an idea for a free web event, she said yes, the event was a stunning success and the next day her company offered me the most amazing position!

 

I could have never dreamed up the things that happened from there.  And, and here’s the BIGGEST take away:

 

I didn’t need to know the HOW or the WHY for it to happen.  I simply practiced Law of Attraction 101:

  • I had total clarity on the result I was seeking.
  • I completely trusted that what I asked for was already mine.
  • I did a daily gratitude practice and perhaps most importantly, I was detached from the WHEN it would happen.

This process works and it requires your participation. Simply wishing, hoping, dreaming, or fantasizing won’t get you where you want to go, but when you’re willing to put in a little time, energy, intention and attention, all things are possible.

 

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Louise Hay’s Mirror Work for more LOVE

It’s hard to imagine a world without Louise Hay in it…she transitioned last week on August 30th – exactly two years after her longtime friend Wayne Dyer passed.

 

For decades, I have admired Louise and looked up to her as my icon for spiritual growth, and aging gracefully and powerfully.

 

I loved her fierce courageousness, her willingness to do and say the right thing with the causes that called to her, and her brilliance, personal style and joie de vivre always inspired me.

 

Nearly 30 years go, I did her groundbreaking mirror work with her and it was a life changing day for me.

 

I remember sitting with Louise as she held a mirror in front of my face and told me to look into my own eyes and make a series of positive statements to myself including “I love you.”  It was hard because I really felt like I was lying to myself.  Somehow, I got through the process and then, as a daily practice, I did mirror work on my own, and learned to understand that not only did I really love myself, but that I was also lovable!

 

All of your self-talk, the dialogue in your head, is a stream of affirmations.

 

These affirmations are messages to your subconscious that are establishing habitual ways of thinking and behaving.

 

Positive affirmations plant healing thoughts and ideas that support you in developing self-confidence and self-esteem, and creating peace of mind and inner joy.

 

If you want to change your life, then it’s necessary to retrain your thinking and speaking into positive patterns. Mirror work, with its positive affirmations, opens the door. In essence, you are saying to your subconscious mind, “I am taking responsibility. I am aware that there is something I can do to change.” When you pay attention to your thoughts, you can begin to eliminate the ones creating experiences you do not want in your life.

 

Twice a day, stand in front of a mirror, look into your eyes, and repeat positive affirmations ten times. For instance, for self love you might say: “I want to like you. I want to really learn to love you. Let’s go for it and really have some fun.”

 

Then say: “I’m learning to really like you. I’m learning to really love you.

 

If doubts or fears or negative thoughts come up, just recognize them for what they are – old limiting beliefs that want to stay around. Say to them gently: “I no longer need you.”

 

And then repeat your positive affirmations again.

 

That which we constantly affirm becomes true for us.

 

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

 Arielle

Turning Cranky into Happy

I am not sure if it’s the eclipse energy from last week, or the constantly bad news on TV, or Mercury Retrograde, or what, but I have been feeling a bit cranky lately.

 

So, I have been digging deep into my spiritual tool-kit.

 

This morning, I added extra lavender to my bath, while doing rounds of  EFT tapping on “I’m cranky and I totally and completely love myself.”

 

On the way to the grocery store, I listened to one of my favorite spiritual teachers, which was uplifting, and I spent a long time cuddling on the back deck with my cat Max.

 

Then I remembered to do my daily “pleasure puppy” stuff (today it was a red velvet cupcake for dessert after a very healthy dinner) and I’ve been searching extra hard on Facebook for funny things to share (and found a bunch!).

 

Finally, I spent an hour coloring and now I feel like me again.

 

Happy. Satisfied. Content and optimistic.

 

I will probably never know why I was feeling cranky, and perhaps it isn’t necessary to know why.  Let’s suppose the reason is “eclipse energy.”  How does knowing that help me?  I don’t think it does.  What’s important is that I have the tools to cleanse and shift the energy in order to let it all go and return me to me.

 

I believe that my happiness is my personal responsibility and I am so grateful that over the years I have assembled an effective spiritual “tool kit.”

 

What’s in your “tool kit?”

 

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Arielle

LOVE – it’s Never Too Late!

My deepest knowing is this:  There is MORE than enough love in the world for everyone, especially YOU!

Regardless of your age, weight, circumstances, history or location, I know that if you have the desire for heart opening, mind-blowing, soul-stirring love, then it is meant to be yours.

I recently read a super inspiring love story in the New York Times that I just had to share with you. Below is an adaptation of it:

 

Eight years ago, Gertrude Mokotoff (now 98) and Alvin Mann (now 94)  met at a gym in Middletown, N.Y., where they still work out twice a week.

On their first date, he drove her to a restaurant called Something Sweet. “He was a perfect gentleman,” she said, and he added, “There was something about her that made me want to keep on talking.”

In a heartbeat, they became an item, talking about dreams and goals and sharing a life together.

“I asked him to marry me,” she said with a chuckle. “I was tired of chasing after him.”

On August 5 at Middletown City Hall, they exchanged vows. Ms. Mokotoff, clutching a small bouquet of white roses, emerged from a side room as their guitarist began strumming “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. As she began slowly walking toward her future husband, his eyes swelled with tears.

Both are widowed from previous marriages, and they have seven children, 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren between them.

Keith Schuler, who has been Mr. Mann’s neighbor for the past 20 years, calls him “an inspiration, and an incredible human being.”

“This man is 94 years old, and I see him outside chopping down trees, dragging logs out of the woods with his old Ford tractor, stacking firewood and cutting the grass,” Mr. Schuler said. “Then I see him and Gert running around like two high school sweethearts, holding hands and kissing, and driving to New York City on weekends. If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t believe it.”

Mr. Schuler was on hand for the ceremony, which he called “a once-in-a-lifetime event,” along with other guests who ranged in age from Ms. Mokotoff’s 7-month-old great-grandson, Jack, to the bride herself.

After exchanging vows and wedding rings, the couple was showered with applause, well wishes and hugs, as several of the guests began to cry.

“Their enthusiasm is contagious and their certainty of a destiny together is inspiring,” said Mayor DeStefano. “We ask that the vision they have for one another always reflects the attraction that first brought them together,” he said before pronouncing them husband and wife.

 

Isn’t that just the sweetest story????

And what about you?  Are you ready to have your very own LOVE STORY?  If so, I want to encourage you to give me 90 minutes of your time and  join me now for a FREE Online Seminar “The 6 Love Codes” that work for conscious women to attract a high quality life-partner and create lasting love…

Solar Eclipse + LOVE & YOU

By now you have heard about this crazy month of lunar and solar eclipse activity designed to shake us up, support us, and transform us in positive ways.

 

The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse that occurred on August 7th was all about letting go of limiting beliefs, as well as people and behaviors that no longer serve us.  It created space for the upcoming Solar Eclipse on August 21 that will magnify all the new things that will best serve us… serve our soul and serve our life expression. Generally, this will include monumental events, meetings and partings, or changes within your career and your relationships, etc.

 

According to astrologer Susan Miller:

 

The job of an eclipse is to shine a glaring ray of truth to the part of your life that is being touched, and truth will likely arrive in a startling way. Eclipses are brilliant illuminators, revealing a truth about a condition that you never in a million years knew existed. Once you are given the information, the news can act as a catalyst to a major decision or action you will take. Most often we are shocked or surprised by the information that comes to us, for the eclipse is one of the most dramatic tools the universe uses to get you to sit up, pay attention, and take action. Eclipses are always your friends, for they are there to help to protect you. Always be grateful for truth.

 

Most importantly, both of these eclipses are a wake-up call to be more loving and kind to ourselves, and to those around us. They give us the opportunity to enlarge our capacity to love more deeply.

 

No matter what occurs, it will become evident that the universe is intent on moving you forward.

 

I like to think of it as this: a big, wet, sloppy kiss from God.

 

Wishing you love, laughter. and magical kisses,

Arielle

Healing Power of Gratitude

Ready to feel better and heal faster?  Many scientific studies, including research by renowned psychologists Robert Emmons and Michael McCullough, have found that people who consciously focus on gratitude experience greater emotional well-being and physical health than those who don’t.

 

One way to begin the process is to keep a daily gratitude journal. It’s very simple: each night before you go to sleep, write down five things you are grateful for.

 

For instance, today I am grateful for: my strong legs which allowed me to walk along the ocean this morning, the fresh air I breathed, the love I share with my soulmate Brian, the healthy delicious salad I made for lunch, and the safe and cozy bed I get to sleep in every night.

 

The research now shows that those who cultivate a grateful outlook:

  • Felt better about their lives as a whole and experience fewer symptoms of stress
  • Have greater levels of joy and happiness and feel more optimistic about the future
  • Got sick less often, exercised more regularly
  • Had more energy, enthusiasm, determination, and focus
  • Made greater progress toward achieving important personal goals
  • Enjoy closer family ties
  • Are more likely to help others and offer emotional support

 

According to The Chopra Center: “If you want more happiness, joy, and energy, gratitude is clearly a crucial quality to cultivate. It is a fullness of heart that moves us from limitation and fear to expansion and love. When we’re appreciating something, our ego moves out of the way and we connect with our soul. Gratitude brings our attention into the present, which is the only place where miracles can unfold. The deeper our appreciation, the more we see with the eyes of the soul and the more our life flows in harmony with the creative power of the universe.”

 

Finally, words to live by:

You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.” -Elizabeth Gilbert

 

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,

Summer Pleasure – Have a Bunch NOW

Are you having enough fun?  We are midway through summer and before it slips by completely, I want to encourage you to consciously choose to have as much fun as possible. And, ladies, this means choosing pleasurable activities that will not only be fun, but also rebuild your oxytocin levels and reduce stress.  And guys, this means choosing some testosterone building things (playing sports, watching sports, working out, having beers with your buddies) that will help you reduce your stress levels.

 

One thing that builds both oxytocin and testosterone is laughter!

 

Go to a comedy club, see a stupid, silly movie (we just saw Girls Trip – yes, it’s raunchy and very funny), or find funny YouTube videos to watch with your partner or a group of friends.

 

Other ways to add fun & pleasure to your Summer:

 

Go to the local farmers market and find the ripest, juiciest peaches, slice in half, dash a little salt on them, toss on the grill and then eat with your favorite ice cream (the flavor is orgasmic!)

 

Drink my favorite infused water – smash watermelon, strawberries, and fresh mint into a pitcher with a bit of honey or stevia, add filtered water and chill for a few hours – it’s delicious, refreshing and nearly calorie free.  It’s colorful & delicious.

 

Take a picnic to an outdoor concert. (we’re going to see Sergio Mendes at the Summer Pops on the Bay next month, the concert ends with fireworks!)

 

Invite friends over for a pot luck outdoor BBQ.  Give your party a theme and have everyone come dressed appropriately (think Margaritaville).

 

Watch a movie outdoors either at a drive in or at local park that has this planned. (We will be going to the La Jolla Cove which will be screening La La Land under the stars)

 

Try stand up paddle boarding or kayaking at your local lake or beach.

 

Grab a tire tube or a big floaty thing and find a nice lazy river to meander down (don’t forget your hat and sunscreen).

 

Find a new and exotic place to take a long walk with a friend or loved one.

 

Be a tourist in your own city and explore new places.

 

Invent a new ice cream sundae – buy several flavors of ice cream, toppings, etc., then invite friends over and have a contest to see who can design the most delicious, yummy concoction.  Calorie counting not allowed!

 

What ever you decide to do, have fun and remember that not only do you deserve to have pleasure, it’s good for you!

 

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Arielle

Amazing, True Story of the SONG that brings in Soulmate

Seventeen years ago, Rebekah Eden had finally had enough of romantic relationships. She was sick and tired of disappointment, heartache and betrayal, not to mention the sense that she was constantly losing herself and her larger mission along the way.

Here’s what she did to manifest her soulmate:

I declared to the Universe, ‘The next man I date is going to have to be my husband, because I am officially not doing this anymore.’ I took a year and a half break from seeing anyone.

But in November 2002, I felt a reawakening desire to find my soulmate. A friend who had remarried in her 50’s gave me a poem she’d written, entitled “My Beloved”. Her soulmate had shown up within 6 months of writing it. The poem so moved me, I cried. I set “My Beloved” to music and sang it over and over again, first with elation, then with despair as my heart’s old hurt set in. But I persisted – to my utter amazement, my wonderful husband Michael showed up two weeks later! I had used the song to move through the pain, and as a homing beacon to guide me to the love of my life. Michael and I have now been together for 15 years.

I never shared the song. But recently when a friend complained of her loneliness, I sent “My Beloved” to her. Within one day of listening, her beloved arrived! This ignited a wildfire within our larger circle; after listening to the song, they were suddenly attracting the attention of numerous prospective partners, and those already married experienced an elevation in their relationships. I don’t consider the song to be magic – rather, it is a tool I and others have used to open up the door to the manifestation of our hearts’ desires.

Today, Rebekah is a singer, composer, and mother of four. She lives in Washington, DC with her husband and soulmate, Michael Weisskopf.

I am excited to tell you that it’s Rebekah’s delight to share “My Beloved” with you – for FREE!  Download the song here (and then let me know what happens!)

Wishing you love, laughter & magical kisses

Forgiveness: Essential For More Love

Maybe it’s just me, but when someone does something mean or upsetting (to me or anyone I know and love), I find getting to real forgiveness is super hard.

 

I just want to dig in and make them bad and wrong, and I find myself thinking of ways to get revenge.  And yes, I know better, and in spite of “not wanting to,” I do make myself forgive… even if it sometimes takes me a while to get there.

 

At its essence, forgiveness is the willingness to let go of the hurt and give up suffering.

 

It’s a decision to no longer find value in anger or blame and it’s a letting go of the desire to judge another or ourselves because of something that happened in the past.

 

It’s a choice to feel love rather than to judge or condemn, and it’s often not easy… and it doesn’t mean that we forget… but we do let go.

 

Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves so we no longer have to carry negativity.

 

It releases us from the past and allows us to heal and let go and be more at peace in the present moment.

 

When I am stuck in “I’ve been done wrong,” one of the practices that works well for me is to sit down and write a letter to the one I need to forgive. This is not a letter that will ever be sent, but a chance to write down and FULLY express how hurt and wronged I feel… to write down what happened from my perspective.

 

Once I’ve written it all down… I add to the end of the letter, “I forgive, you, I bless you and I set you free.”

 

Then, I write a second letter from them to me.  I actually channel them and have them tell ME the story of what happened from their perspective… which usually results in finding out that they never really meant to cause harm… and then, I end that letter with “I forgive, you, I bless you and I set you free.”

 

When it comes to love, I know that being able and willing to learn to forgive is essential to all healthy relationships.  And sometimes, it’s necessary to forgive and to also eliminate certain people from your life if they are toxic or detrimental to your core happiness.

 

Wishing you love & freedom,

 Arielle

 

Life Isn’t Fair (Hooray!)

The other day I had the chance to meet up with the amazing, incredible, super smart Mike Dooley (from The Secret and Notes from the Universe), and we had a blast comparing notes about all the things we have in common, from the college we both went to, the books we have read, the music that rocks our world, and our “knowing” that the Universe always has our back….

Mike said something so profound that I just HAD to share it with you!

He said “Life is unfair.” And then he laughed and said “The cards are always stacked in our FAVOR by 10,000 per cent or more!

So, even though we ALL have negative thoughts or fears from time to time (or have a runaway train of them!), Mike says if we do just one or two simple things every day towards our goals and desires, if we just do a token act of demonstration of what’s possible, we will eventually prevail because words are more powerful than thoughts, and actions are even more powerful than words and thoughts!

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Arielle
