I fell in love with the law of attraction when I saw the movie and read the book The Secret. It was a fabulous introduction to this magical law of the Universe, which can be defined as what you think about comes about.
I wanted to know more; I wanted to learn more, so that I could really manifest magnificence in my life. I also wanted to know how I could use my skills to help other people create brilliant shifts. I started a study group to explore what prevents us from receiving what we want and after almost two years, I had a pretty good idea of what needed doing and now I’ve done it!
“Inspiration in Action: A Woman’s Guide to Happiness” explores eight principles from gratitude and courage to kindness and setting boundaries. I believe that when we practice these principles, we remove the barriers that prevent us from receiving what we want.
I also believe that giving is receiving (sounds funny, I know). I believe that small mindful acts of kindness signal to the law of attraction that we are available to receive. I have included The Mindfulness Project at the back of the book, to inspire readers to share themselves with others….
