3 Treasure Trove Tips For Staying Optimistic In Times Of Contrast


My Beloved gardener and I on our wedding day.
Pour some tea, you'll want to be sitting down for this one.

He had been falling down and blacking out for some time now. He's not the kind of man to be told what to do, but then again how much can I argue with him because I am precisely the same. I'm as stubborn as they come. That's one of the reasons as to why we are soul mates. I thought it may have been his blood pressure medicine, and it needed to be adjusted. All in all, i knew this wasn't normal. 

As many of you know, especially the youtube subscribers that I have spoken about my shoulder injury. I then went on to tell you in the past few days that Jeffrey and I were admitted to the hospital. We initially went because of me, and I ended up faring better than my beloved. i see the good in that because Jeffrey would've never admitted he was so bad off, but for me, he'll move mountains. The universe likes to play magic. I say that because It was a blessing in disguise to get Jeffrey to the hospital. 

Come to find out he's had pneumonia and bronchitis and then the caveat came this evening. He can no longer work as a landscaper. We have learned some devastating news and that Jeffrey has got to take care of himself, and that is the reason for his passing out, he has no oxygen getting to his brain. I won't go into the nitty-gritty details, but what I wanted to talk with you is how life hands us some high contrast, and then it's up to us to decide how we are going to grow and learn from it. I have regularly heard that old cliche quote as a practicer of the law of attraction " Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place."

I'm genuinely holding to that quote. And to be quite honest I'm not sure if I had been psychologically planning for this and my heart already knew it intuitively, or I'm still in shock. I actually made the statement 5 days ago to Jeffrey as we were driving to get supper. " I think the universe is preparing me because I am literally going to be made to be the breadwinner and get super serious about this career out of no other options." And then today Jeffrey and I got the news. The lady was actually very stern with Jeffrey, and I finally saw his face literally become stationary, and his eyes glossed over. 

I don't say all of this as a way of getting sympathy or pity, I just saw it as a way to be of comfort to perhaps someone out there reading this to let you know even when lives seems like all hell is breaking loose, we've got to hold to optimism. I'd like to share 3 Treasure Trove Tips I'm sticking to that is encouraging me to stay optimistic and perhaps they will inspire you as well. I view my contrast in a very different way than most do, mainly because I believe in the law of attraction. All things are working together for my good even when it seems quite the opposite.

1. Remember that life is allowing you to have contrast and that it's actually the laws of the universe working things in your favour according to the escrowed desires that are in your vortex.

2. According to the teachings of Abraham, contrast comes into our lives to help us finetune our human experience. If we didn't have contrast, how would we know what we really want? It's what Christians say, "How would you know the good without having the bad."

3. Please remember that you are not being punished by God/Source/Universe, nor is what's happening, karma. The one thing we have control over is our thoughts and how we focus. I know that if we are laser-focused on our greatest desires, we will always be rewarded with what we desire. There have so many times in my life where the domino effect has happened. I have wanted something, and for that desire to have transpired, the proceeding contrasting event that took place prior had to happen.

 It's going to be okay. You are going to be okay. It's moments like these that we have almighty trust that Source/ The Universe/God has it already worked out. For today I am at peace. I don't know what the next hour, days, months or years will evoke, but for this moment I hold to unity. 

How do you deal with contrast/adversity in life? 

Most affably yours til my next swim, Raquelxxx

A Victorian Halloween

My dear friends,
Won't you pour some tea and let us sit a spell? I'm making some lemon verbena tea with honey and having a few cookies. The gardener is home with bronchitis and the flu; consequently, I am striving to stay hydrated. Did you know that the law of attraction is much like what Christians call faith? I remember being a little girl, and my momma would always say, " Raquel don't own that sickness, honey." I liken the Law of Attraction similarly. My mother taught me as a little girl, without her recognising that she was teaching me energetic vibration. If we think something continuously, we will ultimately create that "thing." We create our reality. I am also drenching myself in essential oils and keeping a good bill of health. The doctor musn't become sick. {wink, wink}
