I’m taking the month of January off to travel to Peru and go do my own inner work (getting an energy upgrade. And possibly an oil change). In the meantime, I’ve decided to give you a little treat and answer your LOA questions on Video for a change! How freaking exciting is that? Enormously. The answer is: enormously exciting. Someone out there is shitting kittens right now. You’re welcome.
Awesome Alan asks: “My name is Alan and I have a life altering question for you. I am a 45 year old man who’s always had a dream about playing professional golf. The reason that I haven’t made it on tour in the last 20 to 25 years is a lot of reasons (mainly mental). I could give you a long story about all the whys’ and wherefores’, but that is the past.
The reason that I’m writing you is that I haven’t given up my dream of playing. If I do, I will always regret it. I might just have one more shot and I really want it.
However, I’m stuck in a dead end job which I must have to pay my bills. I’ve tried to consciously come up with a way to practice and play while working and pay my bills. As you can probably guess, I can’t come up with an answer.
From what I’ve been reading on your website and blogs, should I turn over the life altering question to my subconscious mind through visualization…? If so, what and how should I visualize? And if there are more ideas you have, I would love your feedback.
Alan (future winner on the PGA tour)
P.S. I love your picture on the top of your website… you are HOT!!!!!”
Dear Awesome Alan,
Ok, you got me with the whole “hot” thingy. Here’s your awesome video answer:
If, for some uncontrollable (you know, while I’m away with no access to the internet) reason the video above doesn’t show up properly, please click here and watch it directly on YouTube.
Let me know what you think! I assure you, I’ll be reading each and every comment when I get back!
Big smooshy hugs,
Thanks, Melody. Even though I’m not wanting to play golf, my husband and I have our own dreams and this is a great way to break down the manifesting process and a reminder that the how is not our job. I think I’ll play with some visualizing and maybe some scripting tonight.
I miss your blogposts, Melody! I also miss you! I’m so looking forward to my call with you and getting a Melody fix. he he xoxo
I loved the how explanation. I read this book that said that if you visualized the end result so clearly, then the body would overcompensate any bad movements and overcorrect them to still make a successful shot. Yea, this is in golf too.
This is great! Love that you use videos now =) =)
Wow, where I keeping getting messed up with LOA:
1. I often have a hard time not thinking about the “how” something will happen
2. When the believes that our restricting me rear their head…I let it derail me. UGH 🙁
I find that I’ve gotten a lot better at shifting focus and being open to possibilities I’ve never though of, but I am not very good at releasing negative believes. I find myself thinking positive and trying to picture what I want, but underneath, I often feel a strong feeling of “THIS WON”T HAPPEN” and than it usually doesn’t. I have to re-read the releasing negative believes articles. I need way more work in that area.
i too have the same issue..i keep visualizing and really try to sustain the happy feeling, but when one thing goes wrong it all goes poof..i fall down and start crying over the broken thing, taking it as a sign that this is not happening/wont happening, but then why was i happy , feeling better visualizing it and then i blame myself for living in denial the whole time thinking that it wont happen underneath but even then visualizing it happening and blindly believe it is happening..this phase goes on for some time where i beat the crap out of myself, go to hibernation , depressed and then all something huge happens or i get some clarity and then everything gets better..i remember i am messing with Loa and its not its fault what i want is happening..i stay strong..and then the cycle of downfall starts again..
and this cycle has been going on abt the same single issue for a couple of year..i really need some help here ppl..
Yes, and when it goes wrong I say “I knew it” and I get really angry and upset. But when I look back I wonder: Was I right to believe “this wouldn’t happen” or did I CAUSE things not to happen. *THE STRUGGLE*
I love your video blogs or answers to subscriber questions. They always seem to be full of wisdom and humor, by the way, humor is a great way to make the truth palatable. I like what you said about stop worrying about the “how”. When I get into visualizing I try to imagine a “how” and get stuck there! One thing I haven’t heard addressed yet, though, is how fearful it can be to see your dreams come true. I have seen the law of attraction manifested in my life and try to run the other way thinking it is some sorta trick and can’t be real. I don’t know how to shake the fear of seeing my dreams made manifest. I wonder if you could focus on a plausible, concrete way to graciously accept the gifts of the universe, without feeling like there is some sort of proverbial fingers crossed behind the universe’s back…
