The Law of attraction has had a profound impact on my life, and it is my mission to pass on my knowledge to as many people as possible. Every one of us has the ability to attract and create the life we dream of if we just know how.
The emotional vibration that we emit through our thoughts attracts situations and scenarios to match the feelings we put out. By channelling our thoughts, we can impact our reality. The universe is neutral; it does not favour anyone, there is no such thing as ‘luck’. We have the ability to change the frequency at which we vibrate by changing our thoughts – anyone can do it!
Simply put, while we are only able to see our physical form (our bodies) we are made up of 99 percent of vibrating energy. We have the ability to tap into, and raise our vibration, and this is pure science (I will not go into the science now but feel free to ask me about this if you want to know more).
My journey of spiritual discovery started with a tragedy. On October 17th, 2010 I received a call that I prayed I would never get. My brother, who had battled with drug addiction for some years, had taken a lethal cocktail of drugs after a party. My brother was one of the most, gentle, happy souls – if it was not for this dreadful silly accident, I believe he would have found his true purpose and would have gone on to greatness.
Despite the pain, and suffering my family has endured, it is comforting to know that the passing of my brother has changed my life forever. Looking back and connecting the dots, I would never have embarked on such a massive life and career change (previously working in the media industry in London & Sydney) if it had not been for hitting rock bottom then seeking out a life coach as a way over overcoming my own destructive behaviours. It was through researching life coaching that I decided it was the perfect career for me. I was able to use my passion for human behaviour, my degree in biology and fascination with quantum physics to use this career as the perfect vehicle to channel my desire to help people.
While dedicating all my spare time to study, I experienced a whole new level of self-awareness and experienced my passion becoming my calling. Every client I help, every workshop I run, every success story I hear I am pulled more and more towards my life’s purpose and an incredible snowball effect along the way. The more I learn, the more I share; the more people I touch, the more I love my work; the more I want to learn the more energy I experience; the more energy, the more I attract and so on.
I love this quote, and it rings so true for me with the path I have taken with my coaching business.
“The things you are passionate about are not random; they are your calling” (Fabienne Fredrickson)
Being on this path and now being able to share my story with the world helps me with the loss of my brother. Knowing that he is with me on this journey, that he is the reason I can overcome any fear and keep driving forwards every day. I talk about him in all of my workshops when I describe how I got onto this path. Even though he is not with me, physically his soul and energy are.
One of the first exercises I was encouraged to do as I studied coaching was to design your ‘ideal average day’. If you do not know where you are going, you will never arrive. Success means holding to a vision of what you want. Just saying ‘I have an idea’ isn’t going to make anything happen. You have to be specific and intentional about what you want. Without a vision to pull you into the future, you are likely to keep reverting to the past.
I wrote a vision statement to support my vision board, and it detailed the exact life I wanted to be living down to the detail of my ideal average day. A vision statement is written about a time in the future where you already have the results and life you desire. The more detailed and the more emotion and energy you put into the statement the more energy you create and as I have since studied, the higher your vibration and the more likely you are to attract what you want into your life.
In November 2014, I was at a barbeque and started chatting to a lady whom I had met a few times before. She asked me how my day was, and I said ‘I have probably had one of the best days of my life.’ She was intrigued and asked me about it. I was still buzzing from the amazing day I had had, and I shared my story with her…
I told her about my vision statement that I wrote 11 months prior – setting up my own coaching business, my daughter doing well at school and going to Byron for the Christmas break. In my vision statement I had written about the exact moment I would realise that what I wanted had come true:
‘As I come up from under a wave and take a big breath I look back at my daughter and friends on the beach, I reflect on the year gone by with a sense of pride.’
I had been at the beach swimming under a wave on that day in November before I went to the barbeque and I suddenly thought about my vision statement and realised I was experiencing the exact moment I had described months earlier, and everything I had written about had become a reality.
A few months later the same lady contacted me to ask if I would like to go to America with her to film a personal development program. I was thrilled to be asked and incredibly excited when I realised the timing meant I was able to arrange child care and accept! What an amazing experience.
When I was little, I remember being terrified of having to read out loud in class, this had been one of my biggest fears, and suddenly I was on my way to the US to read off an autocue on camera. This is an important point. I am on my path and have learned how to believe in myself and my work. Doing what I love overcomes any fear. The passion I have for sharing my work and helping people is far greater.
In fact, those are the two of the greatest forces of the world – two polar opposite feelings, both equally powerful. You can either be in place of love or fear. When you are in a place of love you vibrate at a much higher frequency than when in a place of fear which is a much lower frequency. If you are operating from a place of love you notice good opportunities and other acts of kindness and love is attracted into your life. That is the law of attraction at work.
I now experience the law of attraction almost daily, and I have learned to tune into the opportunities that unfold and use them as a guide so I can help as many people as possible to discover ”their element.” Your element is that magical place where your deepest passions and natural talents are aligned. Through transformational coaching, using NLP techniques I assist my clients to discover their ‘authentic self’, and how to live in their element. In this place, you are vibrating at a different frequency & you experience a life full of light, possibility, and excitement.
I heard this quote by Steve Jobs years ago and I never truly understood the meaning of it until now:
“You cannot connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path.”
