lawofattraction-main_FullHave you been struggling to get the Law of Attraction to work for you?  Do you feel like you must have some severe inner blockages that prevent you from attracting the things you really want into your life?

One possible stumbling block you might encounter is the temptation to view the Law of Attraction as some mystical power greater than yourself.  Do you often feel like you’re “begging” the universe to deliver your desires?  Do you worry that you’re not “good enough” and your requests will be denied?  Do you believe that you have to behave in a certain way for the universe to deem you worthy of what you want?

This kind of thinking can create big problems because it automatically disconnects you from your own inner power!

It’s important to understand that the universe only mirrors back whatever you express to it:

– The universe is not withholding the things you want – YOU ARE!

– The universe is not blessing you with joy and abundance – YOU ARE!

– The universe isn’t causing things to go wrong in your life – YOU ARE!

– The universe isn’t forcing you to remain in difficult circumstances – YOU ARE!

– The universe isn’t doubting your creative power – YOU ARE!

It ALL comes from within you, because YOU are the Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction works according to your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and expectations!  If you’re not yet living the life you want to live, you’re probably not putting out the right signal to bring it forth.

Which leads us to the million-dollar question:  how do you use the Law of Attraction to stop experiencing the stuff you don’t want, and begin attracting the stuff you DO want?

First, take some time to get clear about what you really want.  Not what you think you can get; not what you’re willing to settle for; not what other people have said you can have – but what YOU want!  If you could create anything at all right now, what would it be?  Write it down in minute detail.

Then, begin focusing on that quality or experience as often as you can – FROM the perspective of already having it.  How would you feel if you already had exactly what you wanted?  Here are a few possibilities:  you might feel calm, content, happy, joyful, grateful, blessed, excited, or relieved.  Several times a day, bring that quality or essence to mind and allow yourself to FEEL exactly as you would if you already had it.  Imagine that you do have it, and get your positive emotions flowing as powerfully as you can!  Let feelings of awe, joy, excitement, and gratitude take over your entire body.  Let them flow over and through you until you’re nearly buzzing with ecstasy! 

Finally, begin shifting your attention away from things you don’t want.  This is easier said than done, granted.  But it’s SO necessary if you want to stop attracting more of it into your life!  Learn how to detach emotionally from problems, upheavals and difficult people you encounter.  In essence, try ignoring them as much as you can, even if you have to engage in some self-talk like this, “I’m not going to get upset because I choose to direct my energy toward more positive things.”  It will take practice, but eventually you’ll be able to consciously CHOOSE where to flow your energy – toward the good stuff!

If you can do these three things on a consistent basis, you’ll be blown away by the results!  Miracles and opportunities will come flowing into your life in a great rush of joy – and you’ll finally realize that YOU held the power all along.  You didn’t have to wait for someone or something else to decide the direction your life would go – you just needed to remember that YOU are the Law of Attraction.

36-1Blue Cross has just announced that it’s immediately raising premiums charged to hundreds of thousands of individual customers by as much as 39%—even though their parent company’s profits soared to a record $4.7 billion last year.2

Even worse, the insurer has so far refused to explain why they’re increasing their rates, and warned that they might do so again this year without warning.

The Obama administration is demanding answers from Anthem Blue Cross, and Congress has opened an investigation.3 But Blue Cross is only going to respond if this story becomes a major public-relations problem for them.

So it’s time to turn up the heat. Let’s join the growing call for an explanation and send a powerful public message that these abuses by Big Insurance are unacceptable.


The petition says: “Anthem Blue Cross must provide a detailed explanation for their exorbitant rate increases, or else roll them back immediately.”

These latest rate increases in California—reportedly the largest ever by Blue Cross for individual policyholders in the state—are yet another powerful example of how badly broken our health care system is and how desperately we need to hold Big Insurance accountable for exploiting their customers.

Anthem Blue Cross’s parent company made record profits last year despite losing 1.4 million customers—increasing their profit margins by cherrypicking the healthiest people to insure.4

Then they can turn around and dramatically increase the rates they charge to the customers they’ve kept, because there are almost no rules governing rate increases. In fact, the company doesn’t even have to publicly reveal how many customers’ rates they’ve increased, or by how much.

The good news is that Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, is already publicly demanding answers from the company. And the House Energy and Commerce Committee has announced plans to hold hearings to investigate.

But to get Anthem to clean up their act—and show politicians and the media that we can’t afford any more abuses by Big Insurance—we all need to lend our voices. Will you sign the petition?
