“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. 🙂
