If you ask yourself the percentage of your day that is spent doing things things are feeling peace, you'll probably have a very low number. There was no way to attract all of these things and experiences that you believe will make you feel good and peaceful if you don't feel it in the present moment. By understanding that the more that you populate your life and daily existence with things that make you feel good the more you will attract things that make you feel good. This is an important foundational lesson if you are to live the life that you really dream.

This is a stressful time of the year! It's soooo important that you mind your vibration so that you can enjoy it and get the most positive experiences from it!
Max Ryan gives you some valuable tools to do just that! XXX
A child’s laughter, Marilyn Monroe, White Roses, the smell of Lavender, the grandeur of the open ocean, dolphins, kindness; all of these are things I find beautiful. I have been attracted to beauty in many forms since I was a boy and later as professional in the beauty industry. I realized long ago what has been said many times and in many ways throughout history; that real beauty was not exclusively external, but came from the internal.
Have you ever met a celebrity? Have you ever met 60+ celebrities? Well, one of my first opportunities to work with big and I mean BIG stars came when I got to do hair for a video that had more than 60 stars in it. Everyone from Meryl Streep (who, by the way thought I had a great “derriere” (Not the word she used!) to Mickey Dolans (a has been celebrity from the 70’s group The Monkeys) was at this taping, so I can safely say that there was beauty from each end of the spectrum represented that day.
What I learned that day about beauty and how it is perceived could fill a book, but the main thing that stood out, (besides Meryl’s compliment!) was that there were a few of celebrities that challenged my belief about beauty. In many ways they were sort of B list celebrities whom I recognized, but never really thought twice about, but in real life, they were drop dead beautiful! There were a couple in particular that were so radiant, I almost didn’t recognize them because my idea of them was not “beauty”.
As I watched these women I began to realize what they had that many of the “Beautiful” stars that day didn’t have; a sort of… inner light. I’m not kidding or exaggerating when I say that. These women literally looked like they were lit from the inside out; a kind of diffused pale white light emanated from them. It was the most amazing thing and I was utterly fascinated. I couldn’t stop looking at them. They weren’t just beautiful, they were attractive and that attraction was not only a physical attribute. That attraction came from this strange combination of confidence, happiness and that extra thing in Hollywood they call the “it” factor, which I still can’t put into words, but I’m sure that light has something to do with it. My whole concept of what beauty is changed after that day.
“Beauty does not linger, it only visits. Yet Beauty’s visitation affects us and invites us into it’s rhythm, it calls us to feel, think and act beautifully in the world: to create and live a life that awakens the beautiful”
~John O’ Donohue
I tell you this because a deceptively simple yet extremely effective way to begin to get back in touch with the Magic in your life is to begin to be conscious of beauty. When I say beauty I mean anything (a thing, experience or person) that is in your life already or something that you happen upon during your day that you deem beautiful to you.
Being deliberately conscious of beauty does a number of things; it signals the Universe that you want a more beautiful experience of your life and when you begin to focus or refocus on what your soul tells you is beautiful, then more beautiful things, experiences and people will be attracted into your life. When your life begins to become more and more populated with beautiful experiences, things and people, then your energy will slowly begin to shift and the portal to Magic will be opened even wider.
It is literally impossible to be consistently focusing and inviting beauty into your life and have the contrary be true. Through the law of attraction you will begin to see that if, for example you love white roses and begin to visualize them, think about them and buy some to have in your house, you will begin to see them manifesting in your outer experience. Don’t be surprised when one day walking the same path that you travel for years, you suddenly see there is a white rose bush that you had never seen before. Once these kinds of experiences begin to happen for you will know that you are getting back in touch with the Magic.
One of my all-time favorite films in the last few years has been "Under the Tuscan Sun". If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. If you have seen that you might know the story I'm about to tell. The story is about a woman whose life falls apart, and how she begins to build her life back up in a way that's much more in line with her spirit. This is all set with the beautiful backdrop of Tuscany Italy. What's not to like about this film...?
In the film there are so many life lessons, law of attraction principles and how Angels, human or not guide us through our lives. I am not going to do a review of the film here, because obviously I do not have a subjective opinion. Just see the film.
What I want to illuminate here is one story in the film. The main character moves to Tuscany after a surprising and devastating divorce. When she gets to Italy there is an undercurrent of a need to have a man substantiate her existence. She In fact ends up meeting a man. This relationship never totally works out. And here comes the point I want to make for you. There is a character in the movie who is the wise sage woman. The main character comes to her house one day and sage woman says "what Are you so sad about? Why do you keep thinking about him?" The main character doesn't even really know what she's talking about. The sage woman tells a wonderful story about ladybugs and goes on to say "Go work on your house and forget about it!"
And she does. She takes her strong focus away from getting the man and having the man satisfy her fulfillment of herself. She works diligently on our home and forgets about it. I'm sure that you know what ends up happening. That man never comes back but, another one comes into her life which is completely unexpected. The lesson here is that she let go of her grip that something other than her own satisfaction of her life will fulfill her. Once she did that, she got what she wanted. It wasn't the form in which she thought it should be. In this case the man that she was so focused on, instead she got a better match for herself.
The reason that I tell you the story is to ask yourself what you are gripping on so tight that you want to attract into your life, but you're not giving it room to come in? I know that when I work with clients and for myself that when the grip is so tight on something we think that we want we feel that we have to give it all our attention and focus.
Now this might seem contradictory to some of the law of attraction principles of focusing continuously on what you want. But, hear me very clearly here when focusing on what we want is coming from a place of need, then it possibly will never happen or manifest in our lives. If what you want is a true vibrational match for your highest good and is aligned with your spirit and not your ego, then there is no need to continue focusing on it in an almost desperate way. Just be clear about what it is and feel good about it. Feeling good about it and going about your life, opens up the grip so that there is room for it to manifest in your life.
By the way, I've been telling this story over and over to clients and to people I know. I would repeat this lesson and say the line "Go work on the house and forget about it!" I have said it so many times over the last few months. In that same time I have been in a place of tightness around my business. I have been holding on with the grip very tight to make my business more successful.
Guess what? I have been vibrating "working on the house and forgetting about it" And because I was putting the vibration out there by saying it over and over, circumstances have worked themselves out that in the last month, I have had to be at my Dads house... I have had to "Work on the house and forget about it!" In my case my forgetting about my business. Guess what again??? My business is opening up and opportunities are presenting themselves that I never even planned!
So, today go work on the house and forget about it!
Watch the scene from the movie here:
Newsflash: all the things that are not working in your life, are the things that are going to bring you to the most peace and the most joy and the most love possibly the most success. Now, this seems contradictory to what you may believe or definitely what you want to do. But, I want you to start to think about all the things that are not working or that feel really bad in your life. Common wisdom may say not to look at those things and just keep looking towards what you want to create in your life, in any area of your life. Common wisdom will say if you keep your "Eye on the prize" you will achieve it. And in some ways that is true. Having a clear vision of what you want in any area of your life that will bring you the most joy the most peace or the most success is vitally important. But, what most of us don't realize is that looking at what's not working will get you more clear about where you are going.
It is very common in the self-help and new thought community, to stay positive and only look at what's working. This philosophy encourages walking through the world with a rose-colored glasses on. We know that walking through the world with rose-colored glasses on is not the best way to your goals or your success or your peace. It only encourages the things that you're not looking at come back at some point and slap you in the face. That is why only staying "positive" will only get you so far. The reason that It will only get you so far, is because life will always bring up challenges or things you don't want. That is the nature of living in this three dimensional world. If you ignore or push against those things that you don't like or make you feel bad, you are not really living life. The things that aren't working or that seem to be your problems actually are the things that will help you to get more clear about what you do want and if you stick with it eventually your success.
"How is that?" you say. "How can I look at what's not working, and still be positive?" And here is the answer: by looking at what you don't want or what makes you feel bad very briefly. If you can look at what's not working in your life briefly and constructively it will give you all the clues of what you do want and it will bring you into the vibration of what you do want so you can let go of the negative vibration of the problem. Once again, the keyword here is to look at those things "briefly".
. The most important thing is that you be honest with yourself and see that they're not working and to take those things as a guide post to help you to get more clear about what you do want. Those things you don't want are not problems. They are guideposts which are helping you in every way. If you can start to do this, you will end up being more positive. I guarantee it. Because when you face the things that aren't working and shift them being a block for you, they will become your point of freedom.
If you are new to this way of thinking and being, it will take practice. It will take some diligence on your part to remind yourself that the problem that you have ascribed as a problem, is only there to help you to get to where you really do want.
You might say that this is the basis of making lemonade out of lemons. Let's face it, if you don't even see that there are lemons there you can never make lemonade, right? Think about it, if there were a ton of lemons in front of your door blocking you to get out, and you knew that behind that door was everything that you needed for your life, you would look at those lemons and quickly figure out a way to cut them up, make them smaller and shift them so that you could get out the door, right? You wouldn't, on the other hand sit there and stare at the pile of lemons and fret and wonder and keep looking at them over and over and over again. Your survival instinct would kick in and realize you need to look at these lemons very briefly and shift them so you could get out the door!
This philosophy has been around for a very long time. It is nothing new. But, very few people are in the practice of being able to do this. I want you to be able to do this moment to moment and day today in your life... all the time.
I have all the faith in you, that you will be able to open up a very successful lemonade stand very soon! From then on life will be a bowl of cherries… Or lemons… Haha!
To have a different experience of the life you have you must have a different experience of who you are...
Think about this for just a minute: how many people including yourself, do you know in your life that is in a place where they are not happy? They're not happy with their relationships. They're not happy with their careers. They're not happy with their health. They are not happy with their wealth or lack of it. Any of the above circumstances. Many of these people, maybe even you, talk about how they want to change these areas of their lives. They talk about how where they are is not where they want to be. They talk about how if they could only get out of their current situation they then would be happy and be living the life they think they are meant to be living.
This is the perfect place to start in our lives to begin the incredible miraculous and even magical process of change and manifestation. This is the beginning of the beginning. This is when you look at what you don't want so you know what you do want.
If this need for change is great enough, then people will start to take certain actions and start to change their mind about their current circumstances so they can reach the circumstances that they dream of. They will read books. They will search out a coach or a trainer. They will begin the process of manifesting that new change in their life.
Of course I've seen this many times with many people over and over in my work. People that are ready for the change. People that want all of these things and yet what I have found is that many people are not willing to have a different experience of themselves.
What I mean by this is that in order for us to have a different experience of our life and our circumstances, we need to have a different experience of ourselves first. This is crucial in the manifestation process.
Think about this: there is a young mail clerk in a big corporation. He wants to be the head of the corporation. He wants to earn the money. He wants to have the life. He wants to have the influence. He knows this and keeps working as himself hoping and wishing that someday he will make it to the top. He keeps wishing day in and day out that this would happen, yet he still believes that he is the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still sees himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still feels himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. And eventually guess what happens? For many of the mailroom clerks of the world they might rise one or two levels, but they never get the top. They get to the end of their life and think "I wish I could have gotten there..."
The reason that the mailroom clerks of the world so rarely make it to the top, is because they are looking at everything from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are acting from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are thinking from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are doing from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. You get my point. What they haven't done is to have a different experience of themselves other then the mailroom clerk. They haven't activated their imagination. They haven't spent time energy and focus seeing , believing and knowing that there is a small part of them within themselves that has all the goals and desires that they dream of.
You see, in order to have a different experience, you have to experience your self differently. As soon as we experience ourselves differently everything in the universe is set up to start to bring those kinds of experiences, opportunities and goals into your vibration. I can guarantee you, if you are not spending time seeing yourself as that person who has the things and the experiences of life that you now only dream of, the likelihood of it manifesting in your life is slim to none. On the other hand, if you do spend time doing that, everything will move much faster for you.
I can hear your next question right now. How do we do that? Well, start with these 3 steps...
1. Know and take stock at the deepest level of who you are, that you are creating everything in your life. This comes back to basic universal principle. Everything you're experiencing in your life is because you are living it internally on a vibrational level. Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life.
Realize that what you are experiencing right now is what you you have created from the past. The you you are experiencing right now is your projection of your past ideas of who you thought you were. This can be tough if you are in a place that doesn't feel good in some area of your life. But, it is vital that you accept this truth. There is something within you vibrationally that has created who you are right now.
2. Change your concept of yourself. What I mean by that is start to look at what you believe about yourself that is not serving you. Look at what you are telling yourself about your life and about life in general that is not serving you to live a life of wonder, success and love. As you start to do this, you will begin to realize that the part of you that you're experiencing right now as your self, is very small. The possibilities of who you can become are far greater then the small ideas of what you are right now.
3. Be open and willing to change. Be open to the thought that your beliefs of who you are are the springboard to who you want to be. Take the magical leap off that springboard into who you want to be or what circumstance you want to create in your life. Literally feel it. Literally see it. Do this on a daily basis, and you will begin to change your concept of who you are.
When you do or accept these 3 things, your concept of who you are will start to match who you want to be and/or what you want to experience.
Know that your imagination is one of the most powerful tools that you could ever have in your life. Honor your imagination. Treasure your imagination. Use your imagination to serve yourself and serve the world in a much more effective, purposeful and creative way.
Remember everything starts with you. When you change your idea about yourself and consistently focus on who you want to be instead of your current circumstances, everything will fall in line. I know you can do it!
One of the things that is the most important on our journey in life, is to discover and follow what we are passionate about. I know that you probably have heard that many times in your life. But, it is one of the things that helps us immensely to create positive results in our lives.
Most of the time in life we put our passion or what makes our heart sing on the back burner. We put the things that we love to the side because we think we're supposed to live a "real" life and that our "real" life is in direct opposition to what our heart is telling us is our passion.
I believe each and every one of us comes here to this planet in this space and time to share their passions. Everyone has very different passions. Everyone has a different song that makes their heart sing. Everyone has things within them that brings them joy, peace and helps the world in some way.
I see it like this, there is a light with in you that is like a very tiny firework. This light that is with in you needs to be lit and it needs to be nurtured and cared for until it starts to get bigger and bigger and explodes like a beautiful firework spreading it's Joy and passion for all the world to see. When that happens the world can benefit from your tiny spark that became a firework. To deny that passion or firework within you and not let it come out for the world to see and benefit from is, is not living the life you came here to live. To deny it is a form of repression which on many levels can manifest in our lives as things like anger, depression or just producing negative results in your life over and overl. But on the other hand, to discover or know your passion and express it in the world brings great joy, great peace, great love and positive results in many areas of your life.
The more you feed your passion the brighter that light within you becomes. The more you give attention, energy and focus to that thing that is passionate within you, the firework starts to burst forth. It has to because you are giving it attention and when you give your passion attention it feels so good that you want to keep doing it more and more. Yay!!
Now, you may already be sharing your passions with the world, or you know what your passions are and not taking action on them or sharing them in the world. For others you're not exactly sure what your passions are. And for those people I would say you definitely know what your passions are. You know what they are because it comes from a place with in you that says "yes" that feels good!
To discover what your passions are I want to give you three questions that will give you hints towards what your passions are. Right now please get a pen and some paper to write down the answers to these three questions.
1. What really stirs your soul?
(This can be anything that makes you feel fantastic, moved, amazing or emotional. I want tell you it doesn't have to have anything to do with work. In fact as you go through these questions let go of the idea of work)
2. What is the thing that you can do all day long, feel amazing about, never get tired when you're doing it and it gives you a sense of amazing satisfaction?
3. When you go into a bookstore what is the section that you always go to over and over again?
Answering these three questions about yourself very honestly will give you the clues to what your passions are. You may have confirmation about what you felt already inside. Or you may have discoveries about yourself from doing these questions. Either way, what's important for you now that you have an idea or pinpointed your passions, is that you take some small actions towards them. Do some of the things that you may have been denying yourself that have to do with your passions. This will start to raise your vibration and when you're vibration raises you will get more positive results in your life.
As that happens more and more your tiny flame will be a huge firework that is a gift for all of the world. It's time to light your fire! Cause baby you're a FIREWORK!!!
