For the last 25 years, a group of women in Southern California have gotten together about every four months to Clothes Swap! This is a wonderful experience for any women who doesn’t have a lot of money, but just loves the chance to wear something new (to her at least!) on no budget. I’ve been privileged to have participated for the 12 or 14 years once or twice a year. I take all of my unwanted old clothes still in good condition (some that I may have only worn once or twice or no longer fit me) and dump them into the giant communal pile. Then throughout the evening we take turns acting like Jay Leno or David Letterman, cracking jokes about the items–and holding them up for the bidding. The first person who claims an item, gets it unless she already has a large pile and the second bidder has very small one. People take back-up claims in case the item doesn’t fit the person who claimed it. At the end of the night we take our piles to the mirror to try the clothes on, and if they don’t fit we pass them to the second bidder, or put them in the bag to go to the women’s shelter. This way, we discover new treasures that bolster our closet and our self-esteem and everyone comes out a winner! So why not try this with your girlfriends? Your clothes will get a second life, you might get some lovely items, your friends will go away happen, and even the women at your local shelter will benefit! Happy clothes swapping!
As we look to manifest and Consciously Create our lives, we have begun to understand the power of raising our frequency, and carefully and fully crafting our vision. But one of the most important –and forgotten—elements of attracting and manifesting our desires is the concept of FREQUENCY MATCHING.
We know that energy attracts or repels. The fastest and most effective way to bring something to you is to match the energy of the thing that you want to attract.
For example, if you desire to become wealthy, you must project the energy of wealth and prosperity. If you want to attract love, you must project the energy of love, acceptance and compassion. If you desire to experience companionship with supportive new friends, than be a supportive and caring friend.
In order to bring it to you—whatever it is—you must already be emitting that energy, in some either tangible, thoughtful or emotional way.
Thus doesn’t mean that you must already be wealthy. It isn’t just that the wealthy get wealthier, although that is certainly likely if they exude joy and gratitude over their prosperity. It’s more about how you FEEL! If you are a person of little means, but you feel wealthy in spirit, love and whatever you DO have, than you can attract greater means. So here are ways you can Frequency Match:
Your job—if you choose to take it (remember Mission Impossible?) is to match your frequency with whatever you desire to draw in.
So sit down and make a list of the top three things you wish to experience. Then create a corresponding action, thought and emotional expression for each one of those desires. Now go out and live it! Rev up those vibrations so that you can become a frequency broadcaster like no other! Call forth your future by energizing it and Matching Your Frequency!
As you grow spiritually, do you speak and then realize that you said something very counter to your new spiritual believes—something that just might manifest an unpleasant or unwanted experience? Does this happen when you are even thinking things that could manifest unhappily for you. When don’t despair…Many highly advanced spiritual beings (and some far less advanced!) use a very simple phrase to undo the damage. They say –or think–these words: Cancel/Cancelled! And then restate their desire or their thought in a more positive framework. It tells the Universe that you’re taking responsibility and to disregard the errant statement or phrase—Please Universe, listen to the next one and act on that instead!

The Source of Your Prosperity
I’ll bet you think that you’re money comes from the company that pays you a salary or the clients that pay your consulting fees?
But you would be wrong about that. Your money and abundance of all kinds comes from The Universe—the unlimited Source of all things. This is a very important fact to remember. Because just as assuredly as The Source can create what you now have, it can create more!
It can also create less if you are greedy, sloppy with your money, unhappy about your life in general, mistrustful of the Universe, ungrateful, or filled with fear.
So let’s look at this unlimited source of income. How does it create prosperity? It transforms positive intentional energy into the form of currency that we use as exchange in our world today—money! Energy is limitless, so the prospect of more wealth is limitless.
Even if you are living on a fixed income today, this doesn’t mean that that is all there is. Using your inspiration and your creativity, you can find other ways to bring in more, stretch what you have, change what you are currently doing and open the door for something else.
And then there is the occasional surprise! An unexpected tax return or gift from a friend. A mistake in your favor by the bank. A medical reimbursement check. A leap in your mutual funds. An investment that’s matured. A back child support payment. Someone wants to buy something you created and just hung on your wall. A girlfriend buys you a plane ticket to visit her in another city. Someone hands you a coupon in the store that they cannot use.
So if you would like to optimize your possibilities of attracting more abundance, here are certain keys to keeping the wellspring flowing
Remember and Revere the True Source of Your Wealth—When you are pitching an account, or having a conflict with the executives in your company, remember that it is not they who are the source of your income. Always remember and revere the TRUE Source of your money and this will serve you well. It releases your beholden-ness to anyone but the Universe. This allows you to make wise decisions and not decisions based on fear. And it keeps you in a proper state of gratitude and awe at the amazing Source that grants you the means to enjoy your life more fully!
Did you know that being an optimist is not only good for your ability to manifest positive experiences, but it’s actually good for your health? A recent article in Parade Magazine pointed out that researchers tracking 100,000 women over eight years concluded that optimists had a 16% lower risk of heart attacks. A study by the Mayo Clinic looked at 800 patients over 30 years and observed that pessimists had a 19% higher risk of early death!
Minding Your Masterminding
If you feel alone in your personal or business life and you really would like to have a support group of like-minded people, trying putting together a Mastermind group. Even better if they are Conscious Creators, individuals who understand the power of personal empowerment, self-determination and self-responsibility. Look around your social and professional circles for people whom you trust and for whom you have regard. Don’t be intimated if your prospective mastermind partners are folks with more experience than you, or you perceive as more successful. Those are just the kind of people with whom you want to join, people who can provide guidance and help you advance. You’re looking for compassionate individuals who are willing to share what they’ve learned and are team players, they like to support others. The goal of the group is to provide support, guidance and information for each other. If everyone is on the same page, it should be a synergistic process—every person grows and benefits from the process and the group evolves as well. You can discuss your personal struggles, your business challenges or your spiritual evolution—whichever format the group decides upon. Start your group off with a positive visualization of what you want it to be!
Why is it that some people seem to be able to easily manifest their desires, and others get frustrated and just give up? What do some people seem to have the golden touch and others get disillusioned and think manifesting is a bunch of bunk?
That’s because manifesting is like a car. Each part of the system has to be working effectively in order for the engine to work and the car to drive forward. If any portion is out of alignment or non-functional, than you won’t be going anywhere. So we thought we would provide a simple checklist to make sure all the parts are working!
Here are all the systems that need to be working properly for you to manifest optimally and rapidly:
