It’s your Comedian/Working Mother/Singer/Writer/Goddess Friend!
Oh My GOOOODDD!! I am so excited I could just BURST!!
Tomorrow, TWENTY FOUR PEOPLE are going to have the Best Night Ever! With me! Wanna come? Read on…..
I started writing this on Saturday (see below) and it’s now almost Monday – and – I’ve left this as it was, because it’s applicable to all of us (I feel…) But first, here’s a word from our sponsor!
It’s Saturday, it’s a gorgeous Autumn day in Melbourne and I’m writing this before I head out to find a new chiropractor (another blog… but if you know one, who’s connected to the Higher Realms, working in the northern suburbs, please email me privately).
My son has a severe shoulder problem and we’ve looked at the metaphysics behind it; he’s in pain. (Hence, the need for the right practitioner.)
It occurred to me, explaining how his pain was connected to some guilt he was carrying, that he was not feeling free to be himself, that perhaps I’ve never really explained to YOU why I use that word (metaphysics) so much and why I teach metaphysical principles in my work. Why I live these principles one day at a time and how doing so changed my life, my career, my relationships, my health and my priorities. All for the better!
Many of you will have seen the Manifesting Monday emails and Facebook invitations that I have been sending for the past 5 years. Along with info about my band gigs, and the fact that I’m writing a book (almost done! Sooo excited! I am itching to get onto books 2 & 3!!)
Some of you keep asking me ‘when are you going to do radio again’?
‘When will you do another comedy show?’
‘When will you go back to Fox FM, Mix (or TT as some people still call it!) or 774 (ABC Melbourne)?’
I won’t. I can only keep moving forward! I can never go back – only forward to something better! When My Higher Power wants me to work on terrestrial radio again (those that you hear on your radio now) I’ll let you know. But don’t hold your breath! I’m working on a podcast that I’m STOKED about it. More later…..
Back to Metaphysics, fun and creating life As You Want It!
So…..Serious Abundance started in 2008. Maybe I’ve never explained properly, what it’s all about!
In a nutshell, I read Louise L. Hay’s ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ when my first marriage was ending, in 1988! Yikes!
The basic premise of metaphysics is that we are all responsible for our lives, that The Law of Attraction is Absolute and that we have the Power to create what we want (as long as what we want it for the Greater Good, or we will lose it).
I struggled with this concept.
I was in the foetal position for a week, sobbing (I kid you NOT).
Realising that I could no longer blame my parents, my teachers, my (ex) husband (s) (!!), the government or my boss for my shitty life HIT ME HARD. What???
I had to take RESPONSIBILITY? Me?
It was hard at first. I cried a lot. I was in shock. Now I know better!
We create our reality. We draw people, places, times and events to us by our thoughts and actions.
Thoughts become words and words become actions.
Think BRILLIANT THOUGHTS, Kids!
A million books have been written about this stuff, from Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think & Grow Rich’ to ‘The Secret’. All old information, wrapped up in new marketing packaging. No judgement here, just observation. And based on the knowledge that:
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
― Gautama Buddha
So I’m here, with Rosemary McCallum and we’ve been working together for years and together we’ve been teaching Serious Abundance Seminars (and Manifesting Monday is part of that).
It can be very frustrating for us who live by metaphysical principles, listening to our friends whining, when we know this works!
They just aren’t ready to hear it yet.
I’ve seen this over the years I’ve been studying and practicing these principles. Over HALF MY LIFE!
Whingey friends spend gazillions of dollars on a ‘Sell From The Stage Entrepreneur’ and never use the programme, or they don’t feel they were given value. They have felt that there is a magic pill or a spell to living a life of love, joy and abundance, even if Mr. Right has been impersonated by Mr. Totally Wrong!
I am saddened when they are stuck in what’s MISSING, when they could come to Serious Abundance and be part of this amazing community. And save a shitload of their hard earned bucks in the process.
This is a community I visualised many years ago which forms part of our charter and vision:
Here’s our mission statement:
An evolving community of like-minded people, committed to self-empowerment for the betterment of their own lives, their loved ones and the global village.
And that’s what I’m wanting to share here, with YOU.
One of our students put her hand up one night and said ‘I don’t believe I can manifest. I need some proof’. I laughed and said ‘look around this room of 40 people. This room of happy, smiling, supportive, loving people who only know each other through this programme and whom I didn’t know BEFORE I SET MY INTENTION TO CREATE IT. You are part of my manifestion’.
The room was silent. Because it was true. Apart from Rose, my business partner, everyone in the conference room was someone who had come into my life as part of my Vision To Create A Loving Community.
I’m not trying to push anything onto you. That’s hideous.
I just want to share the joy and possibilities of this work with you!
I am such a happy little vegemite, because of this work! and I have the best people in my life to prove it! The community of Serious Abundance includes some of the best people I have ever met!
You can meet them too; they were all new once!
As a performer who came to the stage late (30 years old! Ancient!) I have been intent on living my life through metaphysical principles. Learning to truly love myself started by leaving a radio job that was too much for me to endure on such a gruelling daily schedule.
(Although Baby Spice Emma Bunton, made things bearable!) I love radio but I had to leave as I was sick. Very sick indeed.
Almost 10 years later, I’m single (and seriously visualising my new life partner) studying, raising my young adult son alone as he finishes Year 12, putting the finishing touches to ‘Namedropping & Outrageous Press: A Comedian’s Life In the Celebrity Fast Lane (there’s more where Baby Spice came from!), facilitating Serious Abundance Seminars, doing yoga, fit & eating via the Paleo regime (and so far, never feeling better) PLUS planning the most BRILLIANT self care retreat in Bali for YOU if you want to be part of it! It’s from June 20 -27 and this is no tourist schlep, let me tell you! (And I will, tomorrow night!)
I’ve discovered through trial and error (mostly error!) that when I put MY health, MY physical wellbeing & MY spirituality & artistic life ahead of EVERYTHING & EVERYONE ELSE, The Universe hears me and rewards me in the most miraculous ways.
Only then can I truly be of service to others, which is something that I have as a major priority in my life. I know that many of you want to be of service. But you’re burnt out.
It is NOT meant to be hard!
Take Manifesting Monday, for example. The short version is this. It’s held Monday April 22, 2013. (Tomorrow as I write, but when you get this, it will be today! Magic!)
Our usual/new venue and our former/backup venue have both TREBLED their rates. So that’s a very clear message that we need to find another venue – or Manifesting Monday would be out of range for many of our community.
So tomorrow night, with yoga at 6pm with Edward (who is in his EIGHTH DECADE and can teach a beginner as well as an advanced yogini) and dinner (including our Chakra Series, where we will work on the THIRD chakra) takes us on a completely different journey to what we have done before.
Yes, it DID occur to me that perhaps we would have to postpone this session, but that was not an option.
So, you are cordially invited to attend Manifesting Monday, April 22nd (tonight) starting at 6pm with yoga and then, hopping in your car (or the tram!) and charing a brilliant meal while we teach our
metaphysical lesson for the night, on the 3rd chakra. The solar plexus.
How do you know that you’re meant to be hanging with Me and Ma Peeps tomorrow/tonight?
If you’ve ever been totally fed up with trying to outguess what is ok to eat and what isn’t;
If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and hated yourself;
If you’ve ever been constantly fighting with people;
If you’ve ever been ‘always broke’ and can’t see a way out;
If you’ve ever hated your job but been too scared to leave and follow your real passions
If you’ve ever sat in a mega-auditorium and felt disconnected to the ‘dot’ on the stage ‘inspiring you’ to part with your cash to do their programme, yet you never get to meet them, let alone speak to them;
If you’re caught up in material things or relationships that don’t make you happy;
If you’ve ever been trapped in compulsive/addictive behaviour that makes you feel ashamed; from food to alcohol to on-line activities & compulsive spending;
If you’ve ever hung on to old resentments for YEARS so that you miss out on family & friends’ milestones;
If you’ve waited forever for someone else to apologise;
If you feel you have moved on from your social circle;
If you’ve ever felt so desperately lonely that you wonder why you’re even here…
I understand! I have felt and been all of those things.
I am well and happy and vibrant with no shame at all!
And I’m still as funny as all get out! So please don’t think I’ve become a God-botherer and lost my sense of humour (although I do have a really cool connection to my Higher Power!).
Is Manifesting Monday for you? Wellllllll…..
You’ll only come along if you want to make changes to your life by putting in some actions, incorporating some ideas you may never have looked at before.
IT’S ENORMOUS FUN WITH BRILLIANT PEOPLE! Including me! I guarantee you will have THE BEST TIME and, you will go home feeling a LOT BETTER than when you arrived.
This week, I’ve been challenged by The Real World (the outside one, the one that deals with old paradigms like greed, control, dishonesty. They are merely shadows of my former self, and they’ve re-appeared to show me how far how I have come, and how I need to constantly remember to let go).
So…. this Monday, we have a new set-up, a first! That I am really excited about!
We start at 6pm in Thornbury for yoga (one hour) to incorporate the chakra work we have been doing for the past two sessions. This month we work on the Third Shakra, the Solar Plexus. Where all our emotions are stored. Working with this chakra, the 3rd of the Lower Chakras, takes us into our Higher Realms and helps us move through our fears. It works, kids. I’m alive to prove it!
After yoga, we shuffle off to dinner at Shokuiku, a new Japanese, Raw, Vegan cafe, for dinner and our usual Manifesting Monday class.
Before you freak out….. I am a meat eater. I am a sugar addict (in recovery) and I tell you from experience that this food makes MY HEART SING! check it out here http://www.shokuikuaustralia.com
Manifesting Monday Morphs into:
Loving Myself Well for the Winter Solstice In Bali!!!
We will celebrate the Winter Solstice in The Land of The Gods and I promise you a week that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE! In all the right ways!
And we will be eating raw, organic, gluten, grain & dairy free food THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!!
I love my food more than….anything! And I’ll be revealing all of the details tomorrow night.
So, yes, I know it’s late notice. My Higher Power decided that this was the way to go, by all manner of means until I had NO OPTION but to create this for you!
I am truly excited!!!
Those of you who think this is all crap? This is not your time.
Those of you who think……this sounds interesting but I’m terrified that I’ll be eating raw mung beans and losing the will to live…. this is your time!! (You won’t, by the way. The food is astonishingly brilliant. Superb).
Those who have experienced Manifesting Monday, know how great it is and are THRILLED at this outcome? This is your MANIFESTATION!
This is your time. This is my time.
Rock on kids!
Want to come tomorrow night? Which is now tonight as I edit this (again!) at 1.15am!!
Email me today on email@example.com and you’ll get all the info for Monday night.
I am thrilled to the back teeth and I can’t wait to see you!!!
IMPORTANT! We are only able to accommodate TWENTY FOUR PEOPLE for Manifesting Monday. So please, go here to get all the details:
Blessings, abundance and FUN to you!
PS I know some of you will be worried about Max’s shoulder. It’s still sore. We want a spiritually advanced, emotionally mature chiropractor working with kinesiology as a diagnostic tool. Namaste.
PPS I know this is mega long…. I hope you’ll forgive me… it’s my passion and, I just want you to experience what life can be like when you know how easy it is! xxx
