Interview with Law of Attraction Coach Jen Connon Part II
Jennifer can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 630-346-6650.
Continued from yesterday....
You say that we should focus on the positive. That's very difficult when we are assaulted on all sides by propaganda, negative images and sales pitches that feed off fear.
First thing I would say is stop watching the news – as much anyway. I don’t watch it at all. I scan the newspaper enough to stay informed of the world affairs and then read the articles that are positive and uplifting (sometimes I even cut them out). Some people say that you should watch all of the devastation and suffering going on in the world. I say that you can be aware of it but you don’t need to wallow in it. The more time you spend focused on suffering the more you are adding suffering to your vibration. And not just adding it to your own vibration, but the whole world. Oh we could go on and on here with Quantum Physics and how everything is connected and the studies that have been done about how when monks meditated in war zones the fighting actually ceased for the time they were meditating, etc. But I am digressing from your original question…
Conversely the more you look at negative media hype, the more you will find. And yes it is in large part fear-based advertising isn’t it? Here’s another trick – record everything on tv and fast forward through those ads. I won’t let my son watch anything that hasn’t been recorded first. He doesn’t need to see 15 different ads for 15 different medical conditions he could possibly get someday and then hear all of the side effects for each drug they’re recommending. I once heard about a pharmaceutical company who had extra money one year and began running lots of ads for a drug to relieve restless leg syndrome. Prior to their ads, restless leg syndrome was almost unheard of. After the ads began running, there was a huge increase of diagnosis of people with RLS. After a couple of years, the company’s ad campaign ran out and guess what – the instances of RLS dramatically decreased. Surprising? Not really.
You have to know within you that all is really well and follow your own internal guidance. Follow what feels good. If you are looking at something and it doesn’t feel good to you, then it is not good for you. Meaning, you are currently focused on something that if you continue to focus there you will attract more like it into your life. Very simply if you are feeling upbeat, light and easy then you are attracting good things into your life. If you are feeling grumpy, fearful, anxious then you are attracting those types of experiences. You are literally pre-paving your life by what you choose to focus on.
How does this process help a person and, more specifically, how could this help writers?
Samuel Clemens once said, “What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it.” There is quite a bit of LOA in that statement. It is easy to do anything when we are enjoying it. When a writer is completely in the moment and allowing the ideas to flow forth without worry, without struggle, then it is almost effortless. Working with the principle behind LOA, one learns to allow more good to flow into one’s life, to let go of the need to fight through it and push against. Remember, whatever you push against, pushes back with an equal and opposite force (Newton).
Also, what writer doesn’t want to be published? A LOA Coach could work with a writer on becoming more successful in that, or really any, area.
For those who are interested, how does this work? Are there classes or one-on-one sessions? Are there a minimum number of sessions required?
I do indeed offer classes on this subject. If you are interested and live in the Chicago area, let me know and I will keep you informed on when and where classes are being held. Otherwise, as a coach I offer one-on-one sessions which can be done in person but are more commonly conducted over the phone.
What’s one piece of advice or wisdom you’d like to leave with our readers?
In the words of singer Jack Johnson, “Who’s to say what’s impossible and can’t be found?”
Thank you, Jennifer!
