How to Magnetize Blessings Into Your Life – Issue #100

I have a friend who wanted more love in her life so she set her watch to beep once an hour to remind her to take a deep breath and choose to feel lovable, loved, and loving. Another friend said his watch beeped every hour, but it just reminded him that he’s an idiot because he doesn’t know how to turn it off. We choose what belief we want to reinforce.

I’ve been reminded of this lately as a looming doom and gloom has been lowering the boom. I’ve had an ongoing staph infection for several weeks, and the antibiotics I took for the past 2 weeks created dizziness, nausea, and pain. Yet despite the antibiotic’s toxic intensity, the infection still wouldn’t completely heal, AND my body was now additionally ravaged by the antibiotics! I was feeling frustrated and wondered if my infection would EVER heal. A voice in my head moaned, “I’m doomed.”

Like attracts like, and sure enough, that attitude invited in a cascade of more evidence of doom: A blood test that was taken to determine the nature of the infection showed that I’m pre-diabetic. WTF!? I have an extremely strict diet and eat minimal sugar and starches, and yet I’m pre-diabetic!? Then a friend told me that the carrot juice I drink everyday is loaded with sugar and that could be what’s causing the high blood sugar. My moaning, groaning, doom and gloom voice whined, “Here I am trying to be healthy by drinking carrot juice every day and it’s doing more harm than good!”

Fortunately, I’ve been eavesdropping on my Debby Downer Doomsayer, and remembered that I have a choice. Richard Bach said, “Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they are yours.” At the same time, argue for your blessings and they are also yours. Therefore, I decided to focus only on my blessings, chief among them: my fabulous husband Tom and our rich, loving, fun relationship, the warmth and beauty of my hometown Santa Barbara, my deep and dear relationships with friends and family, and my kick-ass soul that has come to schoolhouse earth for maximum learning and growth.

In just one day of focusing on my blessings, a major shift happened…I became a blessings magnet! What we focus on increases, and I was now magnetizing blessings into my life. One of the blessings I attracted was a natural solution that heals my particular type of staph infection (turmeric applied externally to the infection, and taken internally via 1 teaspoon in water 3 times a day). Lo and behold, my infection has finally healed! Turmeric is also known to have healing properties for cancer, so as I continue with this high dose of turmeric, I’ve relaxed into a sense of wellbeing about my health in general.

Turmeric also helps lower blood sugar. In addition, I’ve stopped drinking carrot juice and am drinking green juices instead, increasing my feeling of vibrance and vitality. Having this infection forced me to get a blood test, which alerted me to my high blood sugar and got me to make changes to correct it…so the infection itself has actually proved to be a blessing!

Doom and Gloom is an old familiar pain body of mine that came to visit me for a bit to remind me that I have a choice of how I want to feel and what I want to attract. It also motivated me to raise my healing regimen to an even higher level. Another benefit of counting my blessings is that it created a relaxation in me that allowed my immune system to do its job; negative energy suppresses the immune system, while a positive attitude enhances it. As soon as I shifted my focus to counting my blessings, my blessings multiplied like bountiful, beautiful, benevolent bunnies!

How about you? What are you magnetizing into your life right now? What would you like to magnetize?

In Love,

Jan Jacobsen
