LOVE FOR NO REASON
"When you’re Happy for No Reason, you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them. You don’t need to manipulate the world around you to try to make yourself happy. You live from happiness, rather than for happiness."~ Marci Shimoff "Love for No Reason"
"Once you begin to understand and truly master your thoughts and feelings, that's when you see how you create your own reality. That's where your freedom is, that's where all your power is. That's when you see how you can become a deliberate creator of your life. And when you are a deliberate creator of your life, and you use this law of attraction, you will have a life that is beyond what you can possibly imagine right now."~ Marci Shimoff "The Secret"
CREATE FROM APPRECIATION
"In relationships we're so used to complaining about other people. My co-workers are so difficult to work with, my husband makes me so mad, my children are so lazy. It's always focusing on the other person. But for relationships to really work, we need to focus on what we appreciate about the other person, not what we're complaining about. When we're complaining about those things we're only getting more of those things. Even if you're having a really hard time in a relationship... things aren't working, you're not getting along, someone's in your face... you still can turn that relationship around. Take a piece of paper, and for the next thirty days, once a day sit down and write all the things that you appreciate about that person. Think about all the reasons that you love them. You appreciate their sense of humor, you appreciate how supportive they are. And what you'll find is that when you focus on appreciating and acknowledging their strengths, that's what you'll get more of. And the problems will fade away."~ Marci Shimoff "The Secret"
"The only difference between people who live in this way, who live in the magic of life, and those who don't, is that the people who live in the magic of life have habituated ways of being. They have habituated this process, and magic happens with them wherever they go. Because they remember and they do it all the time. Not just as a one time event."~ Marci Shimoff "The Secret"
"Many people in Western culture are striving for success. They want the home, they want the great business. They want all of these outer things. But what we found in our research is that having those things, certainly doesn't guarantee what we really want, which is happiness. And that's when all those outer things come. They don't come from going after them first to get the happiness, it's backwards; you go for the sense of inner joy, of inner peace, of inner vision first and then all of the other things from the outside appear."~ Marci Shimoff "The Secret"
"If you're feeling good, then you're creating a future that's on track with what you're desiring. If you're feeling bad, you're creating a future that's off track with your desires. As you go about your day, the law of attraction is working in every second. Everything we think, everything we're feeling, is creating our future. If you're worried, if you're in fear, then that's bringing more of that into your life throughout the day."~ Marci Shimoff "The Secret"
"It's impossible to monitor every thought we have. Researchers tell us that we have about sixty thousand thoughts a day. Can you imagine how exhausted you'd feel trying to control all of those thoughts? Fortunately, there's an easier way. And it's our feelings. Our feelings let us know what it is that we're thinking."~ Marci Shimoff "The Secret"
THE SEVEN DOORWAYS TO LOVE: HOW TO IGNITE THE ENERGY OF INSIDE
If you strengthen the energy centers, you strengthen the qualities that help you open to love. When you think of each energy center as a doorway to love—you could say that the energy of love flows into our lives through the following seven doorways:
The Doorway to Safety: Being in the Here and Now. This doorway is connected to the energy center located at the base of the spine and is related to feeling safe, secure and grounded.
The Doorway to Vitality: Turning Up the Juice. This doorway is connected to the energy center located in the area of the sacrum or lower abdomen and is related to feeling vital and alive – both physically and emotionally.
The Doorway of Unconditional Self-Love – Loving Yourself No Matter What. This doorway is connected to the energy center located in the area of the naval or solar plexus and is related to feeling empowered and worthy of love.
The Doorway of Openness: Living with an Open Heart. This doorway is connected to the energy center located in the heart and is related to being open to fully giving and receiving love.
The Doorway of Communication: Coming from Compassion. This doorway is connected to the energy center located in the area of the throat and is related to being able to listen and express ourselves from a place of love.
The Doorway of Vision: Seeing with the Eyes of Love. This doorway is connected to the energy center located in the middle of the forehead, also called the third eye, and is related to intuition and the ability to see inner and outer truth and beauty.
The Doorway to Oneness: Connecting to Wholeness. This doorway is connected to the energy center located at the top of the head, and relates to feeling connected to a larger whole: God, Spirit, Higher Self, Nature, the Divine or the Universe.
Everything you need to feel greater unconditional love is available to you through these doorways. If you want to be able to give and receive love more fully, focus on developing the qualities that correlate to these centers. When we feel greater safety, vitality, empowerment, openness, expression, vision, and oneness, then we can truly experience Love for No Reason.~Marci Shimoff
