Hello Passion for Pitching Family,
You are now on part three of the Law of Attraction series. I know that if you are reading this right now that you are enjoying reading this series of blogs just about as much as I am enjoying writing these. It feels very good to finally give you all the basis of how the Universe is working for us and how much fun we can truly have if we just practice a little bit of focus throughout our day. More on that to come...
So this blog is to introduce the Art of Allowing. As you get further and further along in this series you will see how these all mesh together and work hand in hand with each other. As you have learned in the two previous blogs, the Law of Attraction is bringing things into your life (like attracts like), the emotions you have are giving you indicators to what type of things you are bringing into your life and now the Art of Allowing is the key to unlock the door to let those things in to your life.
The Art of Allowing is very simple, it is about being happy with where you are right now. Another way to say it is, to make peace with where you are right now. There is nothing you HAVE to have or nothing you HAVE to do. Your sole focus in this world is to practice how to be in alignment, how to be happy, how to be joyful, with what you have in your life right now.
Allowing is easy when you think of it in this way...
Think of the universe as your personal assistant, a sexy personal assistant at that!! (sorry ladies, this is a baseball blog ya know...lol) Your assistant knows everything you want, knows who can bring it together, knows the players involved, knows where you need to be and when you need to be there. Everything is going to be set up perfectly for you before you arrive. The only problem in this scenario is that your personal assistant is now sending you a text to tell you where to be and when to be there but you don't have your phone on. Maybe you are busy worrying about the job your assistant is doing, who knows, but your phone is not on. Well, how are you going to allow these amazing things into your life if you don't have your phone turned on??? Get it?? YOU must be the one who turns on the phone to receive the calls, the texts, the signals that your personal assistant (the Universe) is sending you every day. That is the Art of Allowing.
Let me give you another example just in case you didn't like that one...
Allowing is like eating at a buffet. When you walk down the line and see all the different foods, you simply pick what you want and put it on your plate. But as you pick the foods you want and place them on your plate, you are also looking at foods that you do not want to put on your plate. The funny thing about that is you really probably never even notice or remember the stuff you chose NOT to put on your plate. It is much easier and way more fun to just focus on the foods you enjoy and then put those on your plate so you can go sit down and enjoy a wonderful meal. That is what allowing is all about. See the buffet, see what you like and what you don't like, continue to pick (focus on) what you do like, place it on your plate, proceed to the check out counter and go about eating your meal. It happens so nonchalantly that it is not even noticeable, that is the "art" of allowing.
So what is one of the best ways to be in this allowing mode? Appreciation is one of the best and most efficient ways to get into the allowing mode. Appreciation is a signal that is most felt and heard by the Universe. The great thing about appreciation is that you can appreciate a person, a place, a thing, it doesn't really matter as long as you appreciate. Since you are here in this moment and I have given you some drills to work on in the other blogs, why not do an appreciation list as a drill right now. Pick something that is very easy to love and appreciate. It could be your dog, your skateboard, your surf board, your car...whatever you can think of that is EASY to appreciate. (remember, these drills are very general for your benefit. They are starting places to work forward from. Keep them easy and lite for right now.) Now write a list of ten things you appreciate about the subject you chose. If you can go past ten just keep on rolling. When you are done with that, check in with your emotions, how do you feel? If you are in a good feeling place you are in the allowance mode and things are coming to you as you sit here and read this blog.
Now there is a little trick to this allowing thing that I want to let you all in on. This is going to be brief because I am about done with this for now. But the little trick I wanted to mention is about focusing on the process, not the results (manifestation). The toughest thing to do in this allowing game is to get your mind off of the things you want to allow in and put your focus on where you are now. Be present and feel good in your now. Feel good about your life now. No matter what the circumstances. I understand that may be difficult for some of you, but it is where you must take this. Finding peace in your now opens the door to tomorrow. Trust me, the Universe will fill in the details for you as you go.
That is all for now. Heading to the creative process next and I know you can't wait to read what's next!!!
