How A Breaking Heart Can Be Good For You

I guess if you wake up the next morning still having to deal with the same situation you encountered the day before, change your request to the Universe from “please make this thing easier” to “please make me a better person.”

And it is through that empowering alternative prayer to Life that the “thing” becomes easier.

The only thing you have total control over is yourself. So focus on being a better person in order for everything else to be easier.

The Magical Power Of “Thank You” In Your Life Heals All Wounds

What I love about Thank You Power by Deborah Norville was the exercises she had within her chapters that allowed the reader to put what she calls “Thank You Power” (a state of gratitude that instils fulfilment, purpose & other joyful emotions within people’s hearts, amongst other limitless uplifting benefits) to the test.

One of them entailed writing out, on a blank piece of paper, 3 new things every day, that you are grateful for, and why.

That this:

1. Thank you ___________________________________________________________ because

_______________________________________________ .

2. Thank you ___________________________________________________________ because

_______________________________________________ .

3. Thank you ___________________________________________________________ because

_______________________________________________ .

The whole point of the exercise is to steer you towards better feeling emotions, even if you are currently in a pleasing mood.

She encourages the reader to make it a point to write out this list of three things that you are grateful for, and to do it on a daily basis, with her providing scientific research of the profound results the daily exercise had on people to back it up.

Yes, Thank You Power has been tested, and all of the results were in favour of those willing candidates that practiced feeling gratitude & expressing gratitude on a daily basis – not as a chore but opening their hearts so to be healed by words of gratitude their soul is constantly consoling them with.

The book – Thank You Power – also has inspiring stories of how people benefited from practicing gratitude then Deborah Norville even goes on to tell of the miraculous results produces by daily gratitude with people dealing with shocking experiences life, at times, has a tendency of throwing at us & even other stories of how people tend to recover faster from traumatic experiences through the use of the transformational power of daily gratitude.

So put it to test, give thanks to people, things and circumstances that made the day more convenient for you.

Deborah Norville also noted of the people that she interviewed in her book, that these people were more positive about the future. They were healthier, happier & richer.

This brings to mind what spiritual teachers keep on saying, in how good things tend to come our way when we release the things that make us hurt inside. Things that hold us back in succeeding in life.

One of the best releasing techniques I know and have ever come across AND to experience, which in turn has led to more productivity and more faith in my ever more prosperous, loving and healthy, future in my life, is gratitude.

See article about Gratitude Rock I wrote some time ago.

With that said I encourage you to get your hands on Thank You Power: Making the Science of Gratitude Work for You and marvel at how “lighter” life becomes through almost effortless conjuring of gratitude.

Thank You for taking the time to read this.

Success Is An Obssession

“Thought in the mind hath made us.
What we are by thought was wrought and built.
If a man’s mind hath evil thought,
pain comes on him as comes the wheel the ox behind.
If one endure in purity of thought,
Joy follows him as his own shadow – sure.”

I needed cash, yet my thoughts and my feelings were not receptive, so I pulled up one of the first self improvement books I have ever read, As A Man Thinketh, and I just looked at it…

The cover page had that famous statue of “The Thinker” on it. One of many versions of the timeless self help book which I downloaded for free at

I then had the urge to go and ask for the money I was so in need of.

From multiple people.

Resulting in an interest free loan here, a loan with interest there, calls were made as a means to recover of debts due to me and another request from that other person.

This was all done with a certainty of succees – I guess that is the psychological, emotional state one tends to have when he is backed up against the wall.

Like a do or die attitude. In between assertiveness and cockiness. It was a resolved sense of knowing – it was beyond faith, beyond believing.

I am going to succeed, I told myself, and my mind will inspire me in the right direction of receiving my fortunes.

I told myself I wasn’t going to leave this place [work] empty handed, and I was going to rob them if I have too – I’m an angel, I just used that to psyche myself, and push me over the edge of be comfortable, and GET MYSELF HUNGRY FOR SUCCESS.

It wasn’t a need anymore it was an OBSESSION.

And sure enough each and every one of those transactions pull through. I am now richer than I was when I signed in to work. I was rich before I came to work, even though I didn’t have a cent to me name, but now I am richer than I was an hour ago.

“Wealth is not a wallet state but a mind state.”

I pulled up As A Man Thinketh because that book has a history of producing more money in the world than can be produced by the worthless dollar the federal bank can print – read Rich Dad’s Conspiracy of the Rich: The 8 New Rules of Money to see why. And I wanted to draw strength and inspiration from, and it worked, and I am grateful.

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

The Conscious Psychology Of Success

Every thought is a prayer. And it is the dominant thoughts that God answers.

Every word we speak is a prayer. And it is the words we dominantly speak out that God answers.

Every emotion we feel is a prayer. And is the dominate emotions we feel that God answers.

Every act we do is a prayer. And it is the dominate actions we partake in that God answers.

This is, in its simplicity, the basis of the New Thought movement.

Of course you replace God for “Universe” or “Life” or whatever you would want to call the non-physical entity that is considered by scientist as Source Energy.

So how does this apply to you? In the context of the New Thought movement, we attract people and things and circumstances and events and outcomes in our lives at some level (by word and/or thought and/ or feeling and/ or deed/ action).

We have so constructed our lifestyle in such a way that we do this (attracting the events in our lives) by default – this is still obviously within the framework of the New Thought perspective.

In short, all the things that you & I are complaining about or are experiencing, was attracted by us at some plane. But hold on, before you fuel up on me, let me tell why this notion, if tested, can benefit you for the better.

Because if what I wrote is true, you would just need to adjust the way you speak or think or feel or act so that you can receive something better that what you are currently experiencing. The saying, “change begins within” can never be truer.

You can cut this down to a science: whatever it is I am getting was due to a prior dominate mood, speech, act or thinking. So if you do NOT like what you are currently getting from life, change what you are giving.

But I won’t bullshit you into thinking that when you think & feel & speak of the life you want today, all that you are asking (praying/ affirming) for will be delivered to you tomorrow.

Remember, you spent the most part of your life thinking that life, as it is for you today, is just how life is and there is no changing it. So turning around telling yourself the opposite, it’s only natural for you to come across some resistance regarding this “new thinking.”

I say keep at it, when the municipality comes over to cut off your electricity, don’t go and play victim. Acknowledge its existence. See it as an inconvenience but CONTINUE affirming, or even writing out, in present tense, how you life should be. Regardless of things that challenge your conjuring.

Every day of our lives we are continuously shovelled with small amounts of unwanted nuisances but that doesn’t mean we should focus all our energy on piling it up as it happens. Recognise that is comes with the package of being human and find ways of using it as the fertilizer of your garden of life. Use it as a feedback mechanism of finding out at what level of attraction you aiming at.

If what you receive is not what you are wanting, alter what you are praying to confirm with what you prefer receiving.

And as mentioned, prayer equals:




And Feeling.

What You Should Know About the Flow of Money

Musa: In our last interview you said, and I quote: “People are pissed off about money because people are pissed off about money” can you please explain that?
Money: It all comes back to what I’ve been saying since the beginning. People are vibrational beings. The atoms that make up your body vibrate. Even the words you speak and the sound you hear is vibration.
You don’t hear sound, you hear vibration which you then interpret as sound – that’s how you hear.
Even emotion is vibration.
You see the bumper sticker behind the car in front of you saying, “When days are dark friends a few” this is because of the negative vibrations they pick up from you. It is negative, it is repelling.
Have you ever noticed how people are drown to people that are in a positive vibration? It’s because they make them feel good, the feeling that they get from them, even without speaking a word – their vibe [vibration] – makes them feel good.
Positive emotions draws things in, negative emotions pushes things away, that’s why grumpy people will always feel a sense of loneliness.
Thoughts vibrate too, believe it or not. That’s where talks of “brainwaves” come from.
Therefore meaning, like words and emotions, there are negative thoughts that repel and there are positive thoughts that pull stuff in.
Now if all the above run true – that our thinking, what we feel and what we say are all vibrational – then when you think negatively about something [money] and the lack of it (because this might obviously your current reality of it), that will be your experience of it.
And not forgetting that Money, just like people, is also made up of the fun stuff scientist call atoms.
The vibration atoms give out what is called energy, I mean you cannot “give out” something that you are not so therefore these atoms are, in fact, energy.
This makes sense when you factor and in the ability to repel and/ or draw in other energies. For since energy of the same vibration cling or draw or attract to one another it is also true that by adjusting the vibration of this energy, it can repel other energies too.
That’s why there is conflict when one guy is in a happy mood and the other is not.
I [Money] am ALWAYS in a happy mood, that’s why I don’t stay long, if I ever do, with someone who’s pissed off.
Negative vibrations repel me. That’s why you see the rich people with smiling faces in the shopping mall.
It’s not that they have money that’s why they are happy, they are happy that’s why they have money.
Musa: Hold up, I know people who are happy but don’t have money or enough of it than they wish they had. What say you about that?
Money: Something is “blocking” the money in. Either they have a negative belief [negative thoughts repel] about money or their bitching and mourning about being poor or broke and having conversations about this account that’s taking money away or the kids wanting so much that I can’t afford or, like you just pointed out, how there’s never enough money to go around.
You can’t have one wheel going north (positive) and the other going south (negative) and expect fast, positive results that correspond with the vision of where you see yourself going.
Your words, your thinking (thoughts) and your emotions (feelings) have to be in alignment with the thoughts, words or feelings you would have as if the thing [money] were in your possession right now.
If career climbers dress for their next promotion, why can’t you act your [desired] wage?

Why Taking 100% Responsibility for Your Life Is SOooooo Important

Take 100% responsibility for you life. Only then would you have the power to begin changing it according to how you would like it to be.

Act as if you are 100% responsible for everything that is happening in your life. Own every detail of the good and not so good things that are happening. After accepting everything that you have created, use that energy to design it according to your rules.

How To Use This Energy Of Taking 100% Responsibility Of Your Life To Create The Lifestyle You Want:

Write out what you would like to see happen in your relationships.

Write down what you would like to see happen with your finances.

Write down what you would like to see happen in your physical health.

The more specific you are, the more clarity you put in the script of your ideal life – the faster you will receive inspiration from Source Energy or God to encourage you to take action towards making designed changes in your life. Because now YOU are in charge. It is YOU that has total control of your life.

“All things are possible WITH God” that means God cannot do it all by Himself. He needs your help to make change happen in your life. And change begins WITH you.

“If you keep doing what you have kept on doing, you will keep getting what you have kept on getting.”

So take the time now to do something different, something that will positively contribute to your life instead of letting yourself be run over by life – take control, take charge, take 100% responsibility and begin this by taking the time to write down how you would like it to be.

Be clear.

Be specific.

Be unrealistic.

And let the exercise feel your mind with images of your desired life.

Put all your energy on the “what” and how it would feel like to receive it.

And leave the “how” to God.

“What the mind of man can conceive, and believe, it can create.”

Go to to further your understanding about this concept.

How To Put Some Feeling Into It

Have you ever noticed how things tend to produce better results when you put some feeling into it?

What do I mean by that?

Ok, pick any task in your life you would like to see completed.

Any task.

Pick one.

Now see that task as already finished.

i.e. see an untidy room already clean with everything placed neatly where it should be;

see yourself as already healed and doing the things you want to do, active things, as if you are fully rejuvenated as if dis-ease or dis-comfort was never in your body;

see yourself with the exact money you want, with you receiving the receipt after having paid whatever it is that would put your anxiety at ease.

Whatever it is, see it as already been accomplished.

Now identify the feeling that you would like to feel once the task has been completed, i.e.

Accomplishment; success; gratitude; respect; proud; happiness; relief; excitement; relaxation; victorious; rich; abundant; invincible; etc.

Whatever the emotion, identify it.

Now before you eventually come to undertaking the task in question, feel that feeling you would feel (the feeling you identified in the above exercise in the above paragraph) and feel that feeling now.

Do not decide to feel it after you have finished whatever it is you are doing, but rather feel it right now.

You will find that as you are feeling this better feeling thought, it expands – you will find yourself smiling and finding humour in the task you might had dreaded before.

You might even come to a point where even as you “see with emotion” the completed product of your action, you continue to fail, yet you persist as you find these so called failed attempts fascinating.

There is something magical that happens when you do this, yet it is so subtle that most people don’t notice nor do they recognize it.

It’s as if you skills increases and become better, you mind becomes more focused, your nerves are more in your control, you almost become “superhuman.”

And then you will marvel at how your persistence in visualizing your success AND being able to attach FEELING to that vision of you already completed your desired challenge produces the exact results you foresaw in your imagination.

You “get in the zone,” where you are invincible.

Always getting amused at your failed attempts because of you feeling good for having being a success at it – in your imagination, so you get up & dust yourself off, time and time again become you see and feel it as already accomplished, you feel victorious.

This feeling is addictive.

Do this and success is assured!

So as you put some feeling into it you become a happier person.

What Abraham in Www.Abraham-Hicks.Com calls “being in the Vortex.”

Enjoy having a better feeling weekend. I love you.

To Members Of The Esther and Abraham Facebook Group

You are continually offering a message, or pure meaning, to the Universe.

Not through your words, not through your thoughts, but through the way you feel.

Of course, the way you feel in any moment is as a result of your choice of thought or word.

But it is the way that you feel that is your true message to the Universe, and it is the way that you feel that is your point of magnetic attraction.

And that which is like unto itself is drawn. – Abraham-Hicks

Imagination Sets You Free

While driving back from work, in the back seat of my friend’s car with his wife in the passenger seat, I began “talking” to myself in my mind.

Hey don’t judge me, you do it all the time (:

I looked back on, in my mind, yesterday’s entry and felt that all that I was, need not be discarded as something that won’t serve me today. Actually there is something that I used in my earlier years that might be to my great advantage today.

And that was my death grip approach towards my goal and my bulldozer determination as I willed myself towards it.

I have to be HUNGRY for what I want.

Because now that I KNOW that I will reach my goal, all I need now is to find ways and draw up plans of getting it faster than my set deadline.

This I must done with enthusiasm, joy and excitement. I need to consistently remind myself when (“if” I should rather say) feel frustrated about denying myself instant gratification, that this is the sowing, and all in due time (by my set date to be precise) I will be enjoying my rewards.

I then asked myself, while my friend was cruising back home on the highway, what then?

I reach my goal and then what?

The intelligent voice in my head replied, then you set another precise goal, with another exact date, and what you would give in return for that desired goal, it said.

So I’m not suppose to reach my goal, I asked.

You are never suppose to reach your goal. You are a physical manifestation of Life. And Life is never ending, just as You are. Just as your goals are.

I sat in silence, ignoring the dj from the radio station my friend and his wife were listening too, and it made sense. Then again every time intelligence speaks to me, all I can really hear IS sense.

Because without goals we are dead. Spiritually, intellectually and mentally even, even if we aren’t so physically.

You are a creative spirit. And you were born to do things that thrill your soul.

You thrill your soul by doing things you love. And using you imagination to come up with inspiring ways of creating plans of doing MORE of what you love.

Even Neale Donald Walsch wrote our purpose in life is to experience ultimate joy!

Doing anything else is denying yourself the better feelings available to humans in the world.

Strive to do find out what you love, what turns you on, what – when you do – makes time stand still, what – when you do do – you could do it all day.

And then find ways to do it.

To do it often.

And that’s when you will reconnect with the abundant Source that most call God and experience a happier, healthier, richer life.

Because, as you should know, when you feel good, good things come your way – relationships, money and health included (:

God bless you and Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I Am No Angel But Good Things Come To Me Thanks To The Law Of Attraction

Don’t get it twisted, I am not a monk.

I am not an overly optimistic guy who says he feels good when things aren’t actually so.

Truth be told, I always used to look at life as something of a competition.

I had an “if you are not for me, get out of the way” kind of attitude towards life.

So you could imagine the daily battles I attracted due to my focus of life.

I expected to fight m way, to bulldozer my way to the things I wanted, and a fight I got. Until I got used to the feeling of “accomplishment” I felt, bruised and blooded and burn at the end of my run.

Feelings of anger and frustration and hurt and sadness, to name few, where my closest friends and where, to me, that all too familiar feeling of “success.”

Going about life this way was tiring – emotionally, mentally and therefore physically, but I felt that that was the only way to go, I mean all the guys used to celebrate going about that way at the monastic school I attended, and since I wanted to belong – thanks to peer pressure – I confirmed to their way of doing things.

And it worked, even though the consciences weren’t so desirable. When I so they community of “they” work at achieving things, they used these “compete for everything” tactics and they got them. So surely I must be doing something right?

Not considering that they got what they got because they were in vibrational harmony with the thing they wanted – the process was irrelevant. What IS relevant that you believe the process will produce the results you want.

It’s all about faith in the results when you boil down to it.

Faith that you have promising results or Faith that you will receive unfavorable results.

“Whether you think you can or think you cannot, either way you are right” – Henry Ford

You see, I didn’t know that. I just thought I do the thing and I will get the same outcome as the other guy.

Talk about missing the plot.

So to put it in short, I was an angry, post-apartheid, young, educated black kid, with parents going through a divorce, from the famous township of Soweto, fighting for everything.
Even fighting for the peace I wanted my heart to experience. Not knowing that I was pushing it further away from me.

Life was hard only because I believed it was.

And what I believe becomes my reality.

My reality becomes my experience.

I then used this experience as proof to others of how hard life was.

I never knew that life was as limited as my mind could imagine & belief.

How my dominant thoughts I think create my reality and how by focusing on more of the things I loved, I then attract ways I can take to receive them.

I also thought, due to my sinful ways and the curse filled tongue I carried, certain “good” things in life I was not worthy of.

There I was, limiting my success and all the good, luxurious things I wanted in life with not only my thoughts of not deserving but also the negative vibration I was in 90% of the time.

How can I expect positive things to come to me when I myself was not in a positive vibration. We have to understand that we are living in a world of vibration, and that like vibration attracts like vibration.

So if we want good things to come our way, we need to find ways and any excuse to keep ourselves in a good, positive vibration, even if it is by determined positive thinking.

The world, God, Source Energy, response to our vibration (be it our mood, dominant thoughts, words or action) and produces for us the events and circumstances and people and things that were in harmony with that vibration.

How aligned are you to the thing you want?

But that I mean, how often do you feel the feelings you would feel of the thing you want once you have received it?

Feelings of: Joy; Happiness; Ease; Accomplishment; Prosperity; Love; Hope; Peace; etc.

It’s when you feel good that good things come, it’s not the other way around (of having received the thing you want and THEN feeling good).

Yet there was something gay, pun intended, about having feeling good. Maybe that’s why most of the homosexuals I know are so successful?

Nonetheless I struggled with that concept until I realized that I needed to change for change to happen and began working on myself and my perceptive of life.
