Is It Magic?

What is the Law of Attraction, anyway?  Does it involve wishing on a star and waiting for your wish to drop into your lap?  Is it magic?  Can anyone practice it or do you need special training? Most Law of Attraction experts will tell you that it’s called a Law because it’s a LAW… like the Law of Gravity.  You know, what goes up must come down and all that.  Well, the Law of Attraction is no different.  Whether you “believe” in it or not, what you focus on grows.  That is just the way it is.  Do we have a Fact Checker in the house??

Last week, I talked about how when we focus on the things we want to grow — like our confidence — those are the things that do grow.  I also gave you a quote about worrying: Worrying is like praying for the things you don’t want to happen.  It’s so true!

Lately, I’ve heard lots of people talking about this idea:  Moms in line at the grocery store, retirees at gallery openings, kids in the 6th grade… (Fact check: Actually, it’s only my daughter who talks about this stuff in her 6th grade circles, lol.)  Funny enough, this idea is the basic premise of the Law of Attraction you might have heard about.

At its most fundamental level, the Law of Attraction is exactly that: A LAW that governs ATTRACTION.

Duh, Pam, (I KNOW you’re saying this right now…), I GET the literal translation, thank you very much.  But what does it really MEAN and how does it WORK??

Not very long ago, I was asking exactly the same questions.  I mean, come on, I was reeling from a transatlantic move, a burn-down-all-the-bridges divorce and an international custody battle in federal court (yeah, that’s right, FEDERAL court) (FYI: I won.).  Of course, I read Eat, Pray, Love and The Secret.  And I practiced gratitude as much as the next person.  I even went to CHURCH for a while there, for God’s sake.  After far too many years of drama, I finally decided that I wanted to move my life (and my daughter’s life) in a better direction.

I swear to you that as soon as I made that decision, BAM! Coach Kristen Howe and her Law of Attraction teachings showed up in my life.  It was kind of amazing.  So I signed up for her Go Big! program and studied with her for the better part of a year.  I’m not the expert on that subject, but Kristen sure is.

Kristen is the real deal, no doubt about it.  She knows how to teach the Law of Attraction like a rock star.  She helps tons of people move their lives in better directions, including me.  If you really want to know more about this law and how it works, head straight for her website,  You will find your answers there, I promise!

Much to my happy surprise, Kristen has reached out her hand to me with an incredible offer to help my forward momentum as a coach.  This summer, she offered to endorse my services as one of the experts on her website.  Believe me, I never expected that taking her course would lead me to expert status so quickly!  But here I am.  We just sealed the deal, so my picture won’t appear there for a few more days.

No worries, I’ll let you know when it does… =)

Meanwhile, have I mentioned my new website?…  Okay okay enough already, I know.

Psst… here’s the Law of Attraction cheat sheet:  Think good thoughts.  Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.  Take action towards what you want every day.

That’s the nutshell version.
