If you are a New Age Spiritualist or open to new though movements you’ve probably already heard of The Secret a film and book by Rhonda Byrne. She reached millions of viewers by streaming her film online globally and her book has been translated in several languages. She was able to bring a very old concept into new light, bright enough for all to see and use in a new way; but it’s again not original.
╰ ☆ ╮What is The Law of Attraction?╰ ☆ ╮
It’s basically the belief that “like attracts like”. It’s also the concept that your “thoughts” create your reality. Positive thoughts bring positive results. Negative thoughts being negative results. Sounds simple right? In theory perhaps but in application following this principle can get confusing and it brings up a lot of questions. It’s been around for centuries but publicly written and discussed in the early 1900’s starting with Thomas Troward a strong New Thought Leader, as well as Napoleon Hill who published the famous book: Think and Grow Rich. Many people have interpreted this ancient philosophy.
Because I am a New Age Spiritualist I have a core belief system about humans having a soul and that soul is made from pure energy. Everything in this world and in the Universe is made up of energy, when one learns how to control that energy one can mold and shape their reality or alter their physical bodies. ε(●̮̮̃•̃)з Although this notion is dear to my heart I still look towards logic for answers.
This principal can have a placebo effect as there is no scientific basis to the law of attraction but consciousness science is paving the way to alternate forms of reality. Consciousness is mysterious but we all have brains and biology but we also have this thing (human consciousness) in between that can’t be seen or measured. We have yet to fully understand the full potential of our brains and how much we can use them. It’s true what they say that we humans only use 10% of our brains what if we tapped into the remaining 90%? Would we be all savants? My notion is perhaps we could be smarter but not only with education but spiritually as well like having telekinetic and psychic powers; just my opinion.
This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is: Perspective. The same image but taken in different lights, angles, positions or perspectives. A novel idea!
My fiancée and I went to a quant little pub/restaurant called Central Hotel The Red Door Lounge in Moose Creek Ontario. I enjoyed taking the picture of this rustic building and they are apparently famous for their wings – yum!

Thank you and have a most excellent weekend!
You are on a quest towards better self-development, so you want to take a workshop or two. Seeking knowledge and new techniques feels like nirvana for you. You may also want to attend that conference you always wanted to go but never had the chance because it was never in your neighbourhood, but is now. You are pumped, ready and willing to better yourself! Everything is finally falling into place; you think yeah this seminar is going to change my life. You pick your medium, if online you get ready to click, send and receive — BUT — that dreadful total amount (you know the numbers after the $ money sign) pops up and it’s . . . GAME OVER. Cost too much! Um, what happened to your enthusiasm and this is going to change my life!?!
► Money factors in $$$
Sometimes you can’t see the purpose in spending X number of dollars for self-motivation, which is really what personal development workshops are about. They may contribute aspects of knowledge and techniques (the business related ones do more) but it’s really the same old pep-talk life coaches give. This by no means indicates that it diminish it’s worth and value, it just means balancing out the information you want with the money you are ready to spend for it. The bottom line is, you want to go to these workshops because they make you feel good, like…..┌( ಠ_ಠ)┘fucking-fantastic!
Hi my name is Stephanie and I am a Self-Help junkie!
This year I have an urgency to heal myself. It’s been activated and I have been immersing myself in books, videos and practices to help better myself on all levels. It’s just a matter of time before my call to join a few workshops would come into play. I wanted to discuss the topic of: When is it justifiable to spend (large amounts of money) on personal development workshops?
Greetings and Salutations! ｡◕‿◕｡
I am working with a new camera!
It’s a Nikon D3100.
It’s bitter-sweet as the camera I am using (I inherited) from my late Step-Father “Wayne” whom passed away last October.
He loved taking photographs and editing pictures. In his honor I continue to take fun-filled photos. ❤ love u ❤
This week’s photo challenge by The Daily Post is Threes. The concept is a) An establishing shot b) A relationship and c) A detail
I did not know what this photo-shoot would be, as I looked around the house and without fail my “cats” provided an excellent idea.
My submission to this week’s photo challenge………
These pictures were photo edited on picmoneky
Although I took more than three photographs I found the flow of five entertaining. The story concept is “sniff the cup” what is it and why is it on the ground, cats want to know! *Giggles
