Sometimes there are things we just can’t do. Not right now, anyway.
I’m all for unlimited thinking and believing we can do anything, but I also think we can choose to see the limitations we are stuck with right now as helping us.

Frank and I finally watched The Secret about 4 weeks ago—we must have been about the last people in the known universe to watch it.
We loved it.
I’ve been ignoring it for quite a while because I’ve been working with the ideas in it for many years, so didn’t think I’d learn anything new, and because from advertising I’d seen, it appeared it would be a bit “trashy”, with an annoying over-emphasis on obtaining material goods.
Instead I found a warm, human movie that inspired us hugely to get on with attracting more of what we want into our lives. Frank loved it so much he bought the book by the movie’s creator, Rhonda Byrne, and has already read it!
I was so excited I nearly fell off my chair. My heart was thumping. I had just discovered What If? The Movie. It is two hours long and is available now, on DVD and to watch online. Other versions are coming.
On the movie’s website the question is posed:
What if you held the key to unlocking the greatest discovery of mankind?
Recently Marelisa from Abundance Blog at Marelisa-Online wrote a great article about gratitude over at The Change Blog.
This gave me the idea of looking up The Door of Everything by Ruby Nelson, because I remembered it had something about gratitude. The Door of Everything is a channelled book, authored by “the guiding voice of Father consciousness at the centre of your soul”.
The chapter The Ascension Attitudes explains that love, praise and gratitude are the “keys to the kingdom of true Being”. It says these three attitudes are in fact inseparable, and suggests we could concentrate on all three or just one if we find it more natural. I found this about gratitude:
The vibration of gratitude is such a mighty creative force that it alone, if indulged continuously, could uplift you free of the sub-creation more rapidly than you realize.
I thought I’d try focusing on feeling grateful as much as possible—firstly for all the usual suspects like the house, Frank and my computer. Then I added in things like the ground I was walking on, the air I was breathing and the blue sky. All of this definitely inspired a warm glow, and I felt I was on target for being seriously uplifted.
Money goes around and around and around and around and around. It does. Therefore there is an infinite amount of money in the world.
So if we want some/lots of it, we have to be able to let it circulate in our direction.
I went to a prosperity workshop once where we did the following exercise: we were asked to take a sum of money out of our wallets that we were comfortable with losing, then all stand up and walk around the room, and give the money away. Then sit down when we were ready to. There were about 100 of us.
