AWESOME 2011 Recap

All the Goodness coming my way since concentrating on Law of Attraction.

My sister had been hinting for nearly a year and it finally clicked when I started watching Jewelchic (Megan) on You Tube.  She is my Australian friend who had Oprah come to her house for Taco Night and she has a video HERE of Oprah seeing her Vision Board in her studio.  If that didn’t convince me – nothing would!  LOL

March 5th, I started my Season 1 of 100 Day Challenge, and focused on being POSITIVE.  I became fully involved with everything Law of Attraction.  My favourite book is “Ask And It is Given” by Esther & Jerry Hicks.  It has processes you can use to work your way up the Emotional Guidance Scale to JOY!

As I type this, I am smiling from ear to ear – actually some days, I DO pinch myself, because I am the HAPPIEST I’ve ever been in my 57 1/2 years.  This IS THE BESTEST thing of the whole year truly – it is!  Being HAPPY & POSITIVE makes everything else seem unimportant.

I can honestly say that it was hard work at first, but once I started believing and seeing things manifest, it became easier.  I have been saying once you get the feeling of this HAPPINESS, you don’t want to leave it .  Even turning the contrasts around started to become easier.

On my Season 1 Vision Board was VISIT EUROPE and March 27th – I won a seat for the workshops at Art Mesa Madrid (YES! SPAIN).  I knew right then & there that I would be in Madrid June 3 & 4th! (so that manifestation was 22 days after putting it out there).  Everything fell into place for me to be there…..

Online friends bought artwork from my Artwork Pre-Sale (which are being mailed next week), friends did some fundraising for me, our grand-daughter somehow convinced West Jet to allow the 1 business day expired flight voucher to be used for my Regina/Toronto & return part of the trip.

Hubby happened to go to the casino and came home with monies for the flight – Toronto to Madrid & return.

I had some AWESOME sales at tHE ART of the Matter Exhibit/Sale in Regina in May to pay the hotel and other expenses.  The trip to Spain was AWESOME and meeting everyone there, some I knew online and some are NEW friends!  I still feel like it was a dream until I look at my pictures and the art books I picked up while there.

Before I list other things, I want to say the BESTEST thing that has happened for me – Hubby is even POSITIVE, not as much as me, but more than he ever has been.

NEW unbelievable FRIENDS have come into my life – friends that feel like we’ve known each other for years and we are can be OURSELVES with each other.  We can tell each other everything and there is no judging, we can tell secrets to each other, there is no jealousy.  We are EXCITED for each other!

OK – as one of those friends has been bugging me to make this list for awhile…….here it is!!!

  3. This is so wonderful Dale Anne! You are such a big inspiration to me and to so many others. We are so similar in so many ways – we both love the Law of Attraction and “ask and it is given”! The difference is though you have made a point of documenting and remembering all of the goodness that has come into your life – i think this has helped you manifest so very much in one year! Bravo to you my dear friend! I am so proud of you.

    Love, Violette
