When your desires align with your beliefs, everything you want is drawn like metal to a magnet. Even if what you desire is for Abraham’s eyes meet yours and Esther’s finger to point… right… at… YOU. It’s fun to talk about it and I’ve gathered my thoughts to solidify the memory. If you’re curious, I’ve organized around the questions everyone seems to ask. “How did it feel?” I’ll never forget leaping to my feet and floating to the stage, elated. My desire was already fulfilled, the outcome was fully appreciated in advance, and the joy was off the happy-meter. I remembered to stay lightly focused on my own high vibration and those clear, reflective, infinite eyes. Esther’s eyes were black, like staring into the water in a 1000 foot deep well. Or a well that the bottom is an opening to deep space. I once heard someone in the Hot Seat ask Abraham, “Your eyes… why do they look like that?” Abraham answered, “What you are seeing is our infinite, undivided attention, focused completely on YOU.” “What was your question? What was the answer?” My Hot Seat question was about synchronicity. I love it so much that surprise and delight is almost all I ask for. Abraham addressed all angles. They touched on “how to accelerate it” as well as “how to stop slowing it down” with split energy. They got to the root of a recent (and unusual and highly personal) contrast I was experiencing, without making me share any details. I was shocked when they used my go-to words and phrases while describing the contrast. They asked me to choose what I wanted, and more importantly, to choose how I want to think and feel. Lastly, Abraham talked us up the emotional scale and it was so inspiring I created a stop motion video to help people rise up the scale in a minute of music and focus. You can find it by clicking here to the blog post. Then, it was over as soon as it started. They ended it with the classic, “We think this is a VERY GOOD time for a segment of refreshment.” Poof! Time went from standing still to it being over in a flash. I was off the stage and surrounded by a circle of people asking questions and offering thoughts and thanks. “HOW did you do it?” Almost everyone in the Hot Seat says they KNEW they would be there. I knew I would be there every SINGLE time I ever raised my hand (and didn’t end up in the seat, which was dozens of times over several seminars). What was different? I actually know exactly what was different this time. Abraham says there’s nothing more powerful than feeling pure elation for other people and their success and joy. To REVEL in the joy of seeing others have that which you want for yourself. Just prior to my time in the Hot Seat, it was occupied by Patrick Gutman, a vibrant individual and talented musician whom I had met just two months prior on the Alaskan summer cruise. On the cruise and ashore, we palled around in the same group here and there, we shared Thai food in Ketchikan, and I came to see him as the genuinely enthusiastic and high flying person that he is. Sure enough, on the cruise, Patrick’s high energy landed him right in the Hot Seat! I watched his eyes widen, his sunny smile, his easy laugh and expressive way of gesturing and communicating as he soaked it all up so appreciatively. It was really (really) great to see him there. Fast forward a couple months later to the San Diego seminar. So many of us from the Alaska cruise were there, enjoying reconnecting. BOOM! Patrick was again called up to the Hot Seat! YES! I was smiling at his smiling, laughing with his laughter, experiencing de ja vu, remembering the Alaska cruise. Once again, watching Patrick interact with Abraham was a pure pleasure. THIS is what was different. This was how I was shining brightly enough to be next. Appreciating Patrick flipped the switch. “What did you get out of it?” That’s a longer answer. My Hot Seat was just 2 weeks before my 50th birthday and a power-boost for the many desired manifestations I was planning for my 50th spin around the sun. The 365 days that followed have overflown with everything I wanted and most importantly, the joy along the way. Here’s a few of the outcomes that unfolded. Nice_Synchronicity Instagram page: so many coincidences began flowing I was had to start this page to journal the synchronicities, great timing and messages from my celestial loved ones. I don’t come close to logging the joyful, crazy, bell-ringing moments but I’m having fun along the way. LOA_Jewelry Instagram page: I was also compelled to start a new Instagram page for so many new LOA designs. The “Believing is Seeing” LOA Whale Watcher design, the Joy Key, an AHEJ monogram pendant and the Castle Button are my LOA faves. More jewelry design ideas are bursting and I can’t sculpt fast enough. What a pleasure. 555 Challenge: I began playing with the 5×55 manifestation challenge, specifically asking to be “surprised and delighted by synchronicities” in a never-ending flow. Yes, that’s kind of like asking the Genie for more wishes, but the LOA Genie offers unlimited wishes and yes, it works! I added a highlight on the Nice_Synchronicity Instagram page. Semi-Retirement: Eight months after the Hot Seat, I retired from the corporate work world national role I’d held for a dozen years, working around the clock on Public Relations and Crisis Communication. This manifestation had a fun way of culminating. I’ve always appreciated the feeling of time abundance, of freedom, unlimited travel, financial abundance, all while working 60+ hours per week. One night, on my LOA Jewelry Instagram page I sent a gift– maybe it was a Joy Key – to a wonderful woman for being so NICE. She sent back a few printed pages with motivational quotes and whatnot, one of which says: YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE HAPPIER THAN YOU HAVE EVER BEEN. I surprised myself by putting it right on the refrigerator, but the imbalance of life and work was reaching a dizzying height. Within two weeks, my last day at work was set. Six weeks later I had my 3 recent new hires and one promotion of wonderful capable leaders trained and ready. I retired from the paycheck world with everything I want and need. FUN is the only thing scheduled in the calendar for the next 50 years and beyond. CJH Communication, LLC: My new company was born. Going freelance and playing with clients I enjoy has paid off in spades (and diamonds, and clubs and especially hearts). I still get to write and promote and market great concepts and products to uplift and inspire. I get to move the needle for clients who are excited for the support and the boost. I still do everything I loved about my paycheck jobs, but in about a fifth of the time and that is a JOY. www.CJHCommunication.com ANiceWorld.com: I experienced a creative explosion. I’ve had the time to create many new concepts and revisit my favorite originals from two decades ago. Some have been brought to life with new molds and casting. The Black Lives Matter power pendant was born and the funds are already uplifting the cause. I’m allowing the flow of ideas and I’ve never had more fun sculpting jewelry and connecting causes. New Sources of Inspiration: I’ve gone gaga for Neville Goddard (oddly enough due to a thoughtful gift I gave someone ELSE) and Florence Scovil Shinn. I came upon the book Unlimited, by Zehra Mahoon, thanks to April, my random roomie on the Alaska Cruise and am so enjoying the co-creation as part of this online LOA group. Now I have my own youtube page called Multiply My MOJO which I update from tie to tome to try to keep track of all the wealth inspiration and information. The Real Estate World: I feel even more like Esther now that I get to spend more time playing real-life doll house with the rentals we’ve bought over the years. Now I’m having fun with the “Welcome Home Ventures” Instagram page. This spring I fulfilled a dream to own a piece of the pie in the unique and exciting City of South Tucson. These three adjacent lots in the heart of the main drag are now called the Esquina de Illumina (the corner of light) and the fundraisers, food truck rallies, events and programs will be such a joy to host. I started a “City of South Tucson” A-Z Instagram page which is SO FUN and my phone lights every few minutes with a new follower. I paid off my favorite rental to substitute some of the cash flow from retiring and switched three rentals to short term furnished for the fun and financial abundance. Its so fun to work with travelers and create a great space for them to call home. I could go on and on, but I’ll leave it with the key take away. We’re all a little bit like Dorothy. Being in the Hot Seat was never necessary. We have the power to click our vibrational heels and receive all that we seek, desire and enjoy. Having been in the Hot Seat, listened to 100s of Youtube clips, quite a few seminars and dozens of Abraham NOW live broadcasts, I know this more than ever. We don’t have to be in the Hot Seat to receive direct guidance. In fact, relying on our own ability to appreciate, align, calibrate, allow and create is an even better, more direct and satisfying path to guidance, inspiration and confirmation. See you in the Vortex.
