Feel Great = Attract ‘Good Stuff’ of Life
Feeling great means you not only have energy to DO more in life – it also means that you’ll naturally start attracting ‘good things’ (like great relationships, money… [insert whatever floats YOUR boat here!]).
Now, you might still need to work on your mindset, and clear any limiting beliefs you have, but having healthy high vibration puts you a step ahead of most people when it comes to attracting the bounties of life.
So, tell me. How’s your health right now? Perhaps it’s OK? Or so-so? Or maybe pretty awful?
If so, could you do with a little inspiration and hard-core, real-life health information to get you on the right track?
Over three informative teleseminars, the good doctor shares information on how hormones are affecting your health, and what you can do about it.
Dr Ritamarie, like me, believes in the healing and energetic powers of raw food, and she uses living foods (as well as targeted supplementation) as the basis for her work with clients.
Calls 1 and 2 of the Shine teleseries have already taken place, but if you hurry, you can still sign up and access those calls, and have access to the final, upcoming call.
I’ve been a client of Dr Ritamarie’s before, and even I’m learning something new on these calls!
Sounds good, doesn’t it – feeling fantastic so that you not only enjoy life, but also boost your vibration and attract even more amazing experiences. It’s a ‘win’ x 1,000,000.
Do You Stop Money Coming In?
Now, I’m sure you read that headline and thought, ‘whoa, not me, man. I’m MORE than happy to take any money that’s sent my way, thank you very much’.
But are you quite sure about that?
Let me show you a number of ways in which you could be holding up a ‘stop’ sign to money that’s trying to come to you…
1. You feel a bit scared about how you might handle more money coming in.
Hey, this is completely understandable. When you have a regular, set amount coming in, it feels safe. You can manage it. But when large amounts come in, it can make you feel a bit out of control (I know this from experience). It can be pretty overwhelming, because you’re worried that you might make the wrong decision with that extra money. You’re worried that you might squander it, and while the thought of wasting it makes you feel queasy, you also want to enjoy the freedom (experiences and ‘things’) that extra money can bring.
What to do about it: Decide that when extra money arrives (above and beyond the amount that normally comes in), you’ll only spend up to 15% of that extra amount. The rest will be sent straight into a savings account, to be used for investing, or it could go into paying off debt. You’ll feel much more in control, and this will be a welcoming vibration for extra money, let me tell you. This tip is worth its weight in gold!
2. You don’t appreciate what money you do have.
This is a biggie. You’ve been told SO many times that we have it good compared to people in third-world countries, and it’s true. If you have access to a computer, if you can eat three meals a day, if you can run a car… (even if you live ‘on the edge’ with paying for these things sometimes) then you really ARE wealthy.
What to do about it: Look with fresh eyes at the money and other forms of abundance that come into your life, and truly appreciate them for the blessings that they are. The energy of money will respond in kind by wanting to give you more to appreciate…
3. You don’t want money to change you into a horrible person.
You might say that you want more money, but if you think that people who have money are snobby and cheap (and you don’t like the idea of being snobby or cheap), why would you want to become one of them?
What to do about it: Realise that YOU get to call the shots when you have more money. You can decide to be a rich person who is kind and generous! There are already a few great wealthy role models out there – think Oprah, Bill Gates… Start thinking of yourself as a kind, generous wealthy person who respects money AND people.
4. You don’t realise that there are money-making opportunities right under your nose.
We can all be a bit blinkered when it comes to ways of having money come to us. Many of us dream of winning the lottery so that it comes easily, but you actually have more money-making power than you realise. When you put a limit on how money can come to you (that is, it should be through a lottery or competition, or your boss should pay you more), you make it less easy for money to come to you through other means.
What to do about it: sit down and write out a list of at least 20 things you could do to bring in more money. Even if you have a J-O-B, there are other skills you have that could be used to create extra money, you have items you could sell, and you may have ‘thoughtless’ spending habits that could be reined in a little without making you feel constricted.
Bonus tip: keep track of every cent or penny of income that comes your way. Remember: ‘energy flows where attention goes’. To get you started, head here to download my free Rich Radiant Real Money-Flow Tracker, which includes a worksheet for recording weekly income (you could amend it to record daily income, if you like!).
Do any of the above points resonate with you? If so, take a few minutes to jot down your thoughts and ideas, and then implement, implement, implement – and keep me posted on what happens for you!
By changing your money mindset, you change your vibration to be one that money loves to be around. It actually wants to hang out with you, but it won’t come where it’s not welcome. When you’re really conscious about money, everything starts to change…

Will You Give 29 Gifts?
I just had to tell you about this – a Facebook friend of mine recently started a challenge whereby she decided to give a gift every day, to any person, for 29 days in a row.
I became increasingly intrigued by her Facebook updates each day, and so I looked a little further into why she was undertaking this challenge.
She had supplied links to her inspiration – to a website called 29-Day Giving Challenge – so I clicked on through and had a look.
There’s SUCH an amazing story behind how all of this started. Watch this video for an inspirational overview:
Cami, the lady who began it all, has also written a book – 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life – that explains even more (there’s a Kindle version available, for instant download).
Putting our focus on how much we have to offer, on how much we can contribute to the joy and wellbeing of others, is SO powerful. It really does make you feel good to do something surprising or lovely for someone, doesn’t it? Win-win, I say!
I was so inspired by my Facebook friend’s creativity, and her obvious delight with the challenge, that I’ve decided to undertake my very own 29 Gifts challenge! From Wednesday 1 May I will be giving a gift every day, and I’ll be posting my progress on Facebook.
How about you? Do you feel drawn to join me? Gosh, imagine the ripple effect if we all did this, and our friends and family saw us and became inspired and THEY did it, too…
PS These gifts don’t have to cost money (although they can) – they can also just be acts of love! If you decide to take up this challenge, let me know in the comments below!
Fruit & Nut Choc Eggs
I shared this recipe in my ezine last Easter, and I thought I’d share it with you here, so that you have a healthy alternative to conventional chocolate eggs this Easter!
Unfortunately, most conventional chocolates are chock-full of sugar, milk compounds and emulsifiers – do yourself a huge favour this Easter by making these sweet chocolatey treats from natural, health-giving ingredients. They’re still an indulgence, but I guarantee you’ll feel better!
Remember… the higher your vibration (through good health and eating living foods), the higher your power for attracting all of life’s good things.
1 cup coconut oil
40–50g raw cacao (chocolate) powder
1½–2 tablespoons dark agave nectar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup sultanas
¼ cup cashews, finely chopped
1. Place the coconut oil in a medium-sized bowl. If it’s cold at your house and the oil has turned hard in the jar (becoming coconut butter), place the jar in a pitcher full of hot water. If this fails to melt the oil, scoop out spoonsful of the coconut butter and melt it gently and slowly in a saucepan over low heat. It should definitely be liquid, without lumps.
2. Add the cacao powder, agave nectar and vanilla extract to the coconut oil, whisking until combined.
3. Add the sultanas and finely chopped cashews to the mix, whisking well.
4. Use a teaspoon to gather up a good distribution of the chocolate-coconut liquid, fruit and nuts, and tip carefully into mini half-egg moulds.
5. Chill for at least 3 hours in the fridge, or for at least 1½ hours in the freezer.
6. Carefully tip the egg halves out of their moulds, and serve while chilled.
If you wish to make whole eggs, you can place the back of the eggs on a very hot plate to melt the chocolate a little, and then press two halves together to form one egg. However, half-eggs are just the right size to pop easily into your mouth…
Bonus tip: for extra juicy sultanas, soak them in water (or orange juice – yum!) for at least an hour before adding to the mix. Make sure you drain the sultanas well.
The Happy Movie
I recently heard about this movie – have you?
Imagine it. An entire movie about happiness. Love it! Watch the clip and soak in the happy vibes…
It looks fab, but it isn’t currently available in my area for viewing online. Have you seen it? If so, let me know what you think, won’t you?
5 Ways to Make Manifestation Easier
Sometimes, the ‘good stuff’ that you’ve ordered from the universe just doesn’t arrive.
Or at least, it hasn’t arrived YET. You’re living in the hope that it will eventually get here, but all this waiting can be a little dispiriting. To say the least.
Is this sounding familiar?
Let’s shake things up a little and get your order moving quickly along the production line, and delivered to your door ASAP. You’ve waited long enough, don’t you think?
Here are five ways to get things started…
1. Be Very Clear
This step is easy to bypass, because it seems so inconsequential. But the clearer you are about what you want, the easier it is for the universe/God/Spirit/Source/the Divine to bring it to you.
Otherwise you’re sending out contradictory thoughts that mean your order goes back to the universal warehouse, then out again, then back to the warehouse…
Honestly, you DO know what you want. You really do. It’s just that, until now, your thinking may have been so muddled that you haven’t been able to pin it down.
Just make a decision for now, a decision that you feel really good about. You can always create another order, once you’ve received this one!
Then watch the universe go out of its way to bring your order to life.
If you really are having trouble reaching clarity, you might want to join me for a private VIP Day to help you cut through the fog.
2. Time Your Visualisation
You’ve no doubt heard about the power of visualisation (that is, imagining what it is that you want, and feeling as though it really has come to pass).
However, unless you have visualisation worked neatly into your schedule, it often gets forgotten. Or it feels like a bit of a chore, something that could drag on for ages.
It doesn’t have to be like this.
It can be as simple as grabbing your kitchen timer at the same convenient time every day, plonking yourself down on a chair, giving yourself a minute to relax and then setting the timer for at least 60 seconds to create pure, focused thought and feeling about what it is that you want. (You’ll need to build up to 60 seconds — don’t expect to be able to hold the thoughts and feelings for that long at the start.)
Doing this actually reduces the amount of time it takes to manifest something into your life, because you are creating at a powerful energetic level — it cuts down on the number of ‘action hours’ that you’d normally need to create something.
3. Have Fun in the Now
You’ve gotta love this one. I mean, really, what could be easier and more enjoyable than having fun? And knowing that it helps you manifest more easily is just the icing on the cake.
When your vibration is naturally high (on an everyday basis), it helps you avoid feelings of despondency or desperation that you might otherwise attach to your ‘order’ not yet being here — you experience ‘detachment’, which is a perfect state to be in for manifesting!
So go to see movies that you love, invite that special person over, take an afternoon off to read a favourite book, boogie to tunes from your teenage years, or treat yourself to an experience that you’ve always wanted to have.
4. Think of Yourself as a ‘Downstream’ Person
That is, go with the flow, baby.
Listen to your intuition (aka your ‘gut’) and follow what feels good, where you’re led or guided to. Imagine that you are in a stream and realise that there’s no need to struggle against the current.
It may take effort to put in the action steps that you feel guided to take, but you don’t need to feel as though you’re struggling upstream — if your actions feel ‘right’ at an intuitive level, then trust that the universe is bringing your order to you in the fastest way it that it knows how…
5. Take Massive Action
You might think that this tip contradicts tip number 2, where we spend time creating at an energetic level in order to cut down on the number of action hours that we think we need to expend.
Well, it really doesn’t. In fact, this tip complements that tip.
Taking massive action (that feels intuitively on course) gives you a huge blast of energy, shows the universe that you’re serious, and builds your OWN faith that what you’ve ordered is on the way.
Also, we came to this life to EXPERIENCE life, and it’s through taking actions that we experience the deliciousness of the ride.
So, there you have it! Five ways to make manifestation easier. Try one, or try them all! (And let me know which is your favourite…)

Beautiful High Vibrations
You may well know by now that I’m BIG into ‘choosing natural’.
It’s my belief that a high vibration (which attracts ‘the good stuff of life’) comes from putting good food in and ON your body, as well as by exercising, resting… and all the other ways that I reveal in my freebie e-booklet called 7 Ways to Recharge Your Vibration & Attract the Riches of Life.
I’ve been searching high and low for a ‘natural’ nail polish that would NOT be full of toxic ingredients. (Anything we put on our nails eventually makes its way into our bloodstream, and we breathe in the fumes as we apply it, too…) Finally, I’ve found a range that comes close to achieving this.
The SpaRitual range is vegan, and contains no formaldehyde, toleune or dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and uses recycled materials in its packaging. Isn’t that fab? It may not be COMPLETELY natural, but at least it’s better than the current conventional nail varnishes out there on the market. If you’d like to read more about the harmful nail varnish chemicals you’d want to avoid, check out this FAQ page.
Understandably, this range is not a low price when compared with your usual mainstream, ‘drugstore’ nail varnishes, but it’s competitively priced when compared with higher-end varnishes. I’d highly recommend that you check it out. In Australia head here (they’ll send them out to you in the mail) and in the US head here.
A colleague of mine is currently doing R&D to create a completely natural range of water-based nail varnishes, to complement the rest of her natural skin-care, make-up and haircare range, so when they’re available I’ll test them and will let you know where you can get your (beautifully manicured) hands on those!
Isn’t it great that ‘living naturally’ means we can now add splashes of shine and colour with innovative products like these?

8 Ways to Actually Receive Your Goals in 2013
For those of us who like things organised into neat, orderly packages, there’s something special about being able to ‘contain’ our goals within the span of a year.
We get excited at the start of a crisp new year when we can say, ‘this year I will…’ or ‘this year I will not…’. And, at the time, we really mean it.
But please raise your hand if you’ve heard the depressing statistics revealing that most people fall off their resolution wagon before the end of January.
Don’t let that happen to you this year.
I’m going to give you eight golden tips that reveal how you CAN receive the goals you set for yourself.
But, you’ll ‘actually’ need to apply the tips! The word ‘actually’ features a lot here — you may already know a lot of these tips, but do you ‘actually’ apply them? (The act of ‘application’ could be the thing that makes all the difference for you this year.)
Here we go…
1. Actually realise that you’re worth it.
To quote Desiderata: ‘You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here’. You really are worthy. Believing this is at the core of your ‘receiving’ success. If self-worth is an issue for you (and it is for many, many people), then ‘actually’ spend time doing inner healing work.
2. Actually write down your goals.
This is a biggie. If you’re a self-development junkie you probably already know the anecdote about the Harvard grads who wrote down their goals being a gazillion times more likely to achieve them than those grads who didn’t write them down.
Writing down your goals takes them a step closer to arriving in material form. It really works. Have courage, and actually do it!
(Check out Jack Canfield’s fab book The Success Principles(TM): How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be for goal-writing tips.)
3. Actually make a commitment and stick to it.
Look, resistance is GOING to show up. Just expect it, face it, thank it and then push on through it. You already know that long-term change is going to be a bit uncomfortable. Or even a lot uncomfortable, for a while. But if you make a commitment and then actually stick to it, come hell or high water, you can’t help but succeed. Cultivating a high ‘EQ’ helps – see Daniel Goleman’s seminal work on this, called Emotional Intelligence: 10th Anniversary Edition; Why It Can Matter More Than IQ.
4. Actually practise extreme self-care.
As advocated by life coach extraordinaire Cheryl Richardson (this concept is also known as ‘exquisite self-care’, the latter being a term coined by Earth Empress Shakaya Leone). If you know you need more rest time, more reflection time, more yoga time, more nutritious food and more healthy boundary-setting, then actually make that happen. Again, you ARE worth it. How are you going to have the energy to take action towards your goals if you’re burned out?
5. Actually keep a gratitude journal.
Please do this. It makes such a difference to your vibration. Be inspired by my blog’s Gratitude Friday (or Saturday, or Sunday) posts, and gently begin to cultivate gratitude as part of your everyday life, in your regular self-talk. When you’re honestly appreciative of all that you have, watch the magic begin — even more ‘good stuff’ (including opportunities to receive your goals) starts to show up.
6. Actually create a vision board.
For many years I was afraid to create a vision board (also known as a dream board – but you can always create a booklet or scrapbook, instead), because I thought I’d feel crushed if I put my dreams out there in my field of vision and they didn’t come true. But I can’t tell you what amazing things happened once I finally got over my fear and actually created my first vision board.
7. Actually measure your progress.
This sounds a bit linear and boring, but it really works. And it can be hugely motivating. I recently gave up all forms of sugar for a period of time (including all fruit, which was a challenge), and every Sunday morning I recorded my weight and body measurements. I didn’t have a particular weight-loss or health goal, because it really was just a curious journey to see what effect sugar had on my body. But measuring results helped keep me on my sugar-free track, and spurred me on when I saw real progress being made. Sure, measuring takes a little discipline, but the payoffs are huge.
8. Actually declutter your home and workspace.
It’s such a relief to declutter even a small area. If clutter is a problem for you, actually make time this month to create headway. Positive energy will soon fill the space, and you really will find that doors will open at every turn when it comes to the other goals you’ve set for yourself. Head here for help, at a limited-time reduced investment.
So, there you have it. Eight golden tips. Will you ‘actually’ apply them? Will you ‘actually’ do what it takes to receive your goals this year? (I think it helps to start thinking of yourself as an ‘implementor’, as someone who just gets on it with it.)
The difference between a person who receives their goals and a person who doesn’t comes down to the simple (but not always easy) act of taking action, even when their resistance is strong.
You are bigger than your resistance, and I know you can do this. I want to hear all about your successes at the end of the year, OK?!
