“If we would awaken, we could become selectors of the beauty of the garden God has given us.”—Neville Goddard
Don’t you just love it when crushes are reciprocated? Well, last weekend Jeannette Maw, the brilliant founder of Good Vibe U, was generous enough to post a blog from yours truly! Since she is one rock star of a manifester, I was thrilled that she made the confession of having a girl crush. Jeannette, I boomerang the sentiment back to you.
And I also want to thank you for graciously agreeing to do an interview/guest post on my blog. Yes, folks, you read it here first: wisdom from the inimitable Jeannette Maw.
1. You’re a manifesting maestro. Tell me about your all-time personal favorite manifestation. I’d also love to hear the funniest? The fastest?
My favorite was also my first, when I actually thought all this manifesting stuff was a bunch of hooey.
Just to prove it and be done with it, I followed the instructions I’d read in a book that talked about creating what you want by speaking it as if it were already done. At the time I was volunteering as a foster mom of homeless companion animals and had eight big dogs living in my little home. I’d been on a long dry streak for adoptions like no one had ever seen in the rescue community! I was desperate and badly needed something to go right – namely, one of my dogs needed to find a home!
So I talked about how great it was that my most difficult foster dog was adopted by a wonderful family who lived nearby and was fully capable of taking care of him. That was Thursday night.
Saturday morning within an hour of being dropped off at the same adoption fair he’d been to for the past three months, that very foster dog had two families fighting to adopt him.
The next day another foster dog was adopted. And two days after that a local rescue group took two more dogs off my hands. I was down four dogs in four days and it felt like a miracle had occurred in my life!
From the point on I knew there was something to this law of attraction stuff after all. 😉
The funniest was when my boyfriend followed my lead that same week (after witnessing my success) to manifest what he wanted, and I found myself having ridiculous amounts of sex all week long. Until I realized what was up and I told him he needed to stop that because it wasn’t ethical. In hindsight, it seems I could have appreciated his manifesting success more than I did at the time. 🙂
2. How’d you happen to start Good Vibe U, one of the very coolest manifesting sites on the web?
From personal experience I found that practicing deliberate creation was a little bit lonely in that none of my friends, family or co-workers were doing it (or interested in talking about it). I knew it would be easier to practice if I were surrounded by like-minded others, and I suspected other fellow creators would feel the same. Turns out there are lots of folks who feel the same. Good Vibe U is designed to inspire, educate and connect those of us who are consciously playing with the law of attraction. Together we are become better and better at this “thoughts becoming things” gig!
3. What’s your very best tip for beginners?
Don’t take it too seriously. Sometimes by making it a big deal we kink the energy and slow up our success. Approach it as a playful experiment that you’re engaging just for fun and you’re much more likely to enjoy the process as well as the results.
4. Tell us a LOA story that’s absolutely true, but nobody would ever believe it.
There are a few stories that no one would ever believe, so I’ll share this one instead:
One night I was home alone and craving chocolate. I had none in the house (I’d checked everywhere several times) and didn’t feel like driving to the store for a fix. Instead of resigning myself that I couldn’t have what I wanted, I decided to let Universe satisfy this craving for me. I imagined how good it would taste, melting in my mouth. I heard the “mm mm mmmmm” as I enjoyed every bite. I felt the satisfaction of appreciating rich, delicious chocolate.
And then I let it go.
Next inspiration was to do a little cleaning. As I cleared the counter of clutter, I knew I had to decide what to do with the decorative tin mom had gifted me a week prior. (A neighbor had given it to her; she thought I might be able to use it.) I decided to put it in the give away box, but opened it first to make sure it was still empty (as it was upon delivery).
Inside the tin, wrapped in clear plastic, was some of the best fudge I’ve ever tasted. 🙂

I’ve got a few of those “manifesting” experiences that would fall into the “unbelievable” category, so I’ll share one here.
Back in the early 1980s (I’m not sure of the exact year – 81, 82?) I was intently reading Neville and Seth (Jane Roberts). But it was “The Nature of Personal Reality,” by Jane Roberts as Seth, that I was most focused on, and every night into the wee hours and staying up alone, I would put on some quiet Steven Halpern music and read, highlight and review the book.
After ab hour or two, and still sitting in my bentwood rocker, I’d turn the light off and with the music continuing in the background I’d imagine things as though they already were. Then I’d go off to bed.
Anyway, I got it in my head that I was tired of the snowy Michigan winters I’d grown up in, so I decided I could control that, (according to what I’d been reading) so night after night I visualized waking up in the morning; looking out the little diamond-shaped window in our front door, and seeing the bare, snowless front lawn and street.
It was getting late in November; about the time mid-Michigan would get its first lasting snowfall, and LOTS of snow would endure us from then on – usually until about mid-March – due to being sandwiched within the Great Lakes and their “lake effect.” Sometimes, when the stuff drifted, we had to put “flags” on our car antennas just to let the snowplow know where the cars were parked in the street.
That’s how much we usually got, but none so far this particular year, and I was really encouraged as we went well into December and still no snow. I’d seen some flakes in the air a few nights, but it never did stick and I diligently continued my nightly routine.
The BIG TEST came after the New Year. It was still snowless and sometime in late January, or maybe February, I’m not sure. But a major blizzard approaching had been announced on the news.
The prevailing weather usually moved from west to east across our state, and the storm was still over Indiana and some others, and expected to cross Lake Michigan and the state in the middle of the night. It was dumping huge amounts of snow everywhere it passed and schools, businesses, and even freeways had been shutting down.
I realized I was like, looking-down-a-loaded-gun-barrel, but I decided I’d come this far and my faith was really on the line. I did my usual visualization in spite of the facts and got into bed.
I awoke the next morning and going to the little window I was amazed to look out at a completely snowless scene!
And equally amazing, here’s what the follow-up weather report said: The storm had stopped dropping its load as it passed over Michigan that night, but began again immediately after it got across the state and into Canada, then New York, etc.; shutting commerce down just as it had before.
So my conviction was made a lot easier after that, and Michigan finished out the season with no snow on the ground even though we’d had plenty of cold weather and it had tried to flurry on several occasions.
I think it may be the only recorded Michigan winter on record without snow – at least back then – and I remember deciding to repeat it again the next year, so I began doing the same thing and the snow was staying away as we headed into the season. But I lost interest in the experiment; wondering “What’s the point?” and having other things on my mind by then, and so I abandoned the project and the snow came back.
I love you both! It’s been fun reading about you guys on each other’s blogs. 🙂
I don’t even know the way I ended up right here, however I assumed this submit
was once good. I don’t know who you’re however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger for those
who aren’t already. Cheers!
