If you find yourself unhappy with how you are being treated, if you feel you are always being taken for granted, used, misused, or even abused by some of the people in your life, it's time for you to do a self-check.
Are you expecting your job to be stressful? No free time? Your partner to disappoint you? Your health to decline? Murphy's Law to win? Well when you look at it that way, your wishes are the universe's command.
The key here is that we approach this practice with gentleness and kindness. Each time we recognize thinking and come back into the present moment, we are planting a seed of awareness. We are creating a new habit -- a new way of being in the world.
The only things holding us back are our repetitive thoughts of doubt and negativity which, with some determination, can completely turn around into repetitive thoughts of possibility, in which we have sole creative control.
So long as you're being honest and truthful with yourself, you're going to find that the universe really does shift to support you. It's not always easy -- it takes faith and commitment -- but if you want to live a life of abundance, happiness and fulfillment, it's the only way!
Not only is it important to be aware that treating others the way we would like to be treated is morally the right thing to do, it is just as important to understand that for every one of our actions, there is an equal and opposite reaction that we draw toward ourselves.

The first thing about setting intentions is that you have to really, really want them to happen. You might be amongst the fortunate whose dreams come true quickly. For most people, however, there are ups and downs along the path. The more you really want your dream, the more likely it is to happen.
Reaching any goal, manifesting any desire is a simple matter of deciding that you want it and starting to move in that direction. It's no more complicated than driving from say, Los Angeles to San Francisco.
Look above you into the sky and recognize the expansive majesty and mysteries of how great an opportunity to be on this rock floating in space. Recognize the universe and your part in it. It is beyond miraculous.
It's actually our understanding of how the law of attraction works that is flawed, rather than the law itself. It is true that we attract at the level of our own vibration and that are our thoughts and words are extremely magnetic.
The universe is nothing but the self curving within itself to experience itself as spirit, mind, and matter. Consciousness in motion expresses itself as the matter of the universe -- our life situations. The source of all creation is the spirit.
