True law of attraction story: “Friends for a day”

Originally posted on Mollie Player:

One day when I was in high school, I had a very strange experience. It happened, really, during a family counselling session at which a wonderful Christian woman prayed for me at length. The prayer was for friendship and a feeling of acceptance, and immediately, I felt the effect.

Here’s the thing: in high school, I had almost no friends, and very little self-confidence, either. The mantra in my brain everyday went something like this: people don’t like you, so don’t even try.

Well, that day, and totally supernaturally, the intent of that woman to help me must have broken through my own intent to be miserable, and the result was truly amazing: I felt like a socially accepted and acceptable person–and the next day, I started making friends.

That day in class, the teacher had us write evaluation notes to each other. That’s all we did the whole period–write…

Today, a quick recap of a story I read recently …

In How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body, David Hamilton tells the story of a patient named Linda who was diagnosed with colon cancer.

After the diagnosis, she began the healing visualizations Hamilton suggested, plus began taking better care of her body.

“I regularly have scans, and each time the results are the same: no sign of cancer in my body,” Linda said. She reports being full of vitality these days–even more so than before the diagnosis.

Free ebook: ‘Happiness is the Truth’

cover - happiness is the truth

As part of this blog’s mission is to create awareness of New Age/ New Thought spirituality, I have decided to make my book, Happiness is the Truth, a permanently free offering to the public.

Here, a brief description:

Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto is a plea for a new kind of spirituality that does not limit the freedom and sovereignty of the individual.

The chapters, each of which explains one tenet of this philosophy, include: “Spirituality is good,” “Life is a game,” “There are no rules,” “Absolutes are fine. Certainty is not,” “People are holy,” “We have power,” and, finally, “Happiness is the truth.”

The manifesto is available in print or ebook form on

And here is an excerpt:

“Suffice it to say that I believe in love, and I believe in eternity, and I believe in spirits and in the big mystery that is what we…

True law of attraction story: “I travelled the world”

Originally posted on Mollie Player:

When I was in high school, I received a message from God via a friend of my mom’s who, like both of us, was an Evangelical Christian. While praying for me one day she prophesied that as an adult I’d become a world traveller, going to China, India, Africa and other exotic places like that.

At the time, hearing this was a big help to me. It gave me something to look forward to, something to help me get through my worse-than-mundane high school existence. I held on to the dream, and once I went to college, studied Mandarin Chinese–a language I still totally adore. After college, I did go to China, and later to India, and a whole bunch of other cool places, too. Africa is one of the next on my list, and I don’t think it will be long before I get there.

To this day, I’m…

True law of attraction story: “I paid off my mortgage today!”

Originally posted on Mollie Player:

law of attraction new year

No outside contributor today; this true law of attraction story comes from me, y’all! And here it is: Today, I paid off the mortgage for one of my homes!

It’s the first home I bought, and when I did so I was a part-time waitress right out of college. I got myself a few roommates and pinched every penny. Without knowing how it could ever happen, I made a goal to pay off the mortgage in ten years.

The day I signed the papers was Friday, January 13–just over nine years ago.

I know what you’re thinking: how did you make this happen? Well, I worked hard, of course–but even that couldn’t possibly have guaranteed such an outcome. I believe the biggest factor in this little success is that I knew the house was the right one for me. It felt right buying it, and it felt right renting…

True law of attraction story: “I’m definitely not shy anymore”

Originally posted on Mollie Player:

Today, a personal law of attraction story for you.

When I was growing up–let’s face it, up to my mid-twenties–I was one of the shyest people I knew. I could just barely stand speaking in class. I hated standing out in any way–a comment on a new hairstyle, for instance, freaked me out–and I totally sucked at making friends.

Now, this was in my pre-New Age awareness days, and yet it won’t surprise most of you to know that that didn’t stop me from succeeding in ridding myself of this mental alignment. After a torturous high school experience, while in my first year of college, I made a momentous decision: I decided to stop being shy.

My method: I would speak once a day in class.

I can’t remember if I succeeded in doing this every day or not. Since that semester, though, I have gradually worked my way through…

True law of attraction story: “Finally, I got rid of those things!”

Today, a quick recap of a story I read recently …

In How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body, David Hamilton tells of a patient who had two very large warts on his feet, one of them almost the size of his big toe. Though he’d had them for several years, soon after he tried Hamilton’s visualization techniques, the warts completely disappeared. What hadn’t responded to any number of holistic and traditional healing approaches (including drugs), responded very quickly to his mind and beliefs.

Very cool story, I thought.

True law of attraction story: “I did the impossible”

Originally posted on Mollie Player:

Contributor: The Power of Positive Thinking in Business by Scott Ventrella.

Roger Bannister was the first person to run a mile in under four minutes.

It happened in 1954, and until that time, no one believed it was possible. Running experts, physiologists, doctors–they all had “proof” that it couldn’t be done.

Until it was.

Most interesting to me, though: after Bannister accomplished this feat, he was followed by twenty-four other people … within just eighteen months.

Dream about something impossible today.

Things don’t cost what they cost

Thanks to everyone who downloaded my latest book, The Naked House: Five Principles for a More Peaceful Home already.

For everyone else, an excerpt:

“It’s as true of a blender as it is of a dog: things don’t cost what they cost. They cost what they cost to buy, maintain, move around and store. All these factors cost money (yes, space alone costs money: square footage is the number one factor in home price, and have you seen your heating bill lately?), but there are several other costs to consider, and both are more valuable than cash. The first is the cost of your time: the sheer number of minutes that add up to hours that add up to days that you spend rearranging, cleaning, protecting, and working around your stuff. And the second is the cost of your emotion . . .

“For the purposes of this book, the…

True law of attraction story: “My roof is going to get fixed”

Contributor: My friend and fellow blogger Scott. Find more of his thoughts on spirituality at

Manifesting should not be work. It should be something that happens naturally when first you will it, then you follow through as needed. No, you don’t just express your desire to the universe and start running around to find it fulfilled. It’s quieter than that. I find that if I manifest and turn it over to God, it works out.

Example: My roof is leaking. The estimates I could gather for a new roof ranged from $4,000-$10,000.

I couldn’t afford that. I didn’t even know who to call. So, I manifested.

Later, I had to stop by the nursing home for what became my last therapy session. The PT suggested that I should see if it’s covered by my insurance. My deductible is $1000, so that still concerned me, but I had them send…
