Good Vibrations

Confidence is more than attitude, it’s a vibration of energy.  Fear is also a vibration of energy. When you vibrate at a positive level, you become a walking magnet for good people and things to come your way. If you drop some money, someone will call out to let you know. Or, you won’t drop money. You may even find money.

When you vibrate at a negative level, you still become a walking magnet—but for people to kick you when you’re down, take advantage of you, or for things to break down, delays, or just not work in flow.

On either side of the coin, you’ll attract the matching reality to your vibration. If you make a habit of feeling excited, joyful, and satisfied, those energies will tip the scale in your vibration, and results cannot but match those vibrations. If you’re not at the vibration you’d like right now, sit for ten minutes with this. Shift your vibration. Your vibration will not shift after something good happens. Good things will happen when you shift your vibration.

If you do consciously shift your vibration then say, “It worked for half a day, but then it didn’t” check your vibration. It’s easy to fall back into habit. You may start out being very aware of holding exciting thoughts and next time you check, you learn you’ve been worrying about something, or having an argument in your mind with someone who upset you months back.

Before going to bed, you can program your subconscious mind to vibrate at a positive level. Think happy, joyful, exciting thoughts. Feel how you’ll be relieved when the outcome of your problem is solved. Wonderful! Smile your way to sleep. The subconscious mind doesn’t argue. It only says, “Yes!” When you imprint a happy vibrational energy just before going to bed, it’s handed to your subconscious mind for the night. Because your conscious mind isn’t involved, you have a head start on shifting your energy.

Feng Shui and Money

Money is a form of energy. It’s a more convenient way of carrying around our form of barter than lugging around chickens and goats.

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of placement. It’s based on the knowledge that everything is energy, and when energy is stuck, we get stuck, emotionally or otherwise. Feng Shui is basically  setting your intention around energy. It doesn’t have to be woo-woo or expensive. In most cases, you don’t need to spend money to set feng shui into action. You can begin right now with setting your intention, removing clutter (which is what I define as things that don’t raise or maintain the energy you want) and re-arranging things in your apartment, home, or room(s) within it. You don’t have to decorate in red and black. If you feng shui your desk at work no one will know unless you tell them. (Well, if you have a little Buddha, and bagua mirror it may stand out a bit…)

An interesting blog, video, and three minute intro podcast to feng shui:  The Feng Shui Way Podcast

A book and blog with a fun, light approach to feng shui:

Feng Shui is not a replacement for common sense. (Darn!) You can do all the right moves with color and product—but if you ignore your budget, and continue an attitude of doom and blame, the place you forgot to feng shui is your thinking. Have fun with it; don’t abdicate your mind to anything or anyone.


Your grandmother was right. You are a bundle of energy! Everything is energy. That includes money, too. When you break anything down to its sub-sub particle level, you’ll find more space than matter, and the energy particles will be in motion.

Energy isn’t “good” or “bad”, it’s neutral. Money isn’t good or bad, either. It’s our perception and use of money that stirs up emotions. Spend some time searching your belief system about money. Are people filthy rich? Is money the root of all evil? Does money equate power? Does living without what you want make you more evolved? Does stockpiling ensure you’ll have what you want later?

Be OK with your answers. If you find a belief you want to change, take steps to anchor your new belief. For example, If you previously held the belief rich people were snobs, you might want to go to a place “rich” people go. (Walk through a ritzy store, try on the jewelry, outfits. . .) It is not about spending money. It’s about changing a belief system. How do you feel in that atmosphere? If you’re not enjoying it, try another place on a different day. Make an effort to feel you belong there.  If you feel you don’t, that feeling will mirror back to you.

Monitor your feelings, thoughts and actions during this exercise. Do you feel uncomfortable? Resentful? Or are you enjoying the experience? What actions are you taking to show the universe — or yourself, that you can take care of wealth? How are you talking about money? How are you dressed? (This is about being “put together” neatly, not about buying a new outfit.) Did you wash your car before going on this outing? How about removing the month old chip bag from the back seat?

Go prove your grandmother right, you bundle of energy!

Have fun!
