My first meeting with the Law of Attraction group….:)

The Law Of Attraction, as most would say is, like attracts like, and is absolutely amazing when you think about it. We have all heard that saying “like attracts like” what does that mean and how does it happen?

I have asked myself that question and gone in search of the answer, perhaps because I became aware I could have more of what I wanted and live my dreams. I could just accept that I was born to provide physical labor in service of the rich and in turn as some would say accept my lot in life. Yet who are they to say what my lot is?

I started to explore the Law of Attraction a couple of years ago while studying the various perspectives about being “Consciously Aware”. I suppose I was meant to study it as it is relative to understanding consciousness and knowing. A few years back there was a movie called” the Secret” which is based on the Law of Attraction. I came upon the movie and watched it, several times in fact and then wanted to get the book as I did a search for the book and the law of attraction I was flooded with as many options and perspectives as I was in my studies of Consciousness.

There are so many people and so many shared perspectives it is quite amazing, one of the things I have been recognizing is the similarity in perspectives and the common theme between being consciously aware and the law of attraction, first is thoughts become things, then the recognizing you are not your thoughts and have control of them and last that like attracts like. It has been awesome learning and having so many teachers to learn from. One of my favorite teachers of the law of attraction is Abraham Hicks “Ester” and her husband Jerry Abraham is one of the most well known and recognized teachers of the Law of Attraction and what a fun lady to observe and hear speak. Ester is all energy and quite good amazing as she expresses herself and shares the words of Abraham.

I was invited to join a Law of Attraction group locally through a social media networking site that most of us know… FaceBook! Oh my one of those sites I had vowed years ago not to become too connected and involved in. Myspace was pure Drama in my world, kids neglected lonely women, dates and lots of well let’s just say drama that served its purpose and gave me what I was attracting.

My first experience with the Law of Attraction group was one of the monthly meetings I had been invited to attend by the organizer and group President Christiane Turner of Quantum NLP The group meeting was held at a nice book store and holistic healing shop in a meeting room in the back that I would guess was used for many purposes. The meeting began with a short greeting and then a nice meditation session led by Angela Gifford-Carter, of the Transformation Station followed by the main speaker of the meeting Kathy Hacking.
Kathy gave a beautiful speech and shared a wonderful perspective and lesson about the law of attraction that I learned a great deal from. She shared her perspective as she expressed her interpretation of what she learned through as she studied their perspective and modalities. I was quite taken when she broke out her sun glasses and another six or so pairs of rose, yellow, red, blue and various other colors and started her lesson with the concept that we walk through life after the age of 8 or so with our sunglasses on. It is almost like a post I had shared about labels as the sun glasses represented the things that others taught us as we grew up and tainted our vision with the color of their perceptions and expectations. Those things that limit our ability to see with clarity and with our natural vision, the crap that is not ours limits our vision and affects our lives.

I was most appreciative of a clearing statement she shared, it is a real simple one that functions like a reset button on your computer. Pod poc that! Simple and effective if you use it and can grasp the concept, pod poc is a short version of the clearing statement taught at accessconsciousness in their teachings. Point of Destruction, point of creation, when you say the clearing statement you are asking that the issue or the crap that is not yours be taken to the point of creation and the point of destruction and recycled destroyed and transmuted into a positive light energy form. I personally have used it hundreds of times since that meeting as I find myself starting to think in a way that I was taught that may not resonate with the good thoughts I own and embrace. The negative self limiting ones imposed by society or my family for example. You can’t do that, that costs too much, you don’t have the education only the real lucky ones have it like that. What? Pod poc that! I believe in me the universe will take care of it, I am very intelligent and I create my own reality! Thoughts become things, like the little train going up that big hill… I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I know I can! So can you think it believe it and know it! The Law of Attraction says so and so does being consciously aware of your thought and who you are! Think and know you are amazing and be amazing where ever you are no matter what the rest of the world thinks those thoughts are theirs and if they are not thinking and knowing you can while rooting for you It is their crap… Pod poc that!
The Clearing Statement
These crazy weird words are the Access Consciousness Clearing Statement® – a simple tool that thousands of people around the world use every day to continually create a life of ease, joy and glory.

It goes like this:
“Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, POD, POC, All 9, Shorts, Boys and Beyonds®”
The meeting ended with a short meditation and positive energy circle sharing the wonderful energy we had flowing and releasing some as a group to those in need and into our world and universe! I am going to end this post with a thank you all for allowing me to share some time and perhaps some smiles with you. I also would like to say thank you to all those that share and inspire us in so many ways. Thank you all for stopping by and for being you, you are the positive change our world so needs sharing your love and your smiles… Making our world a better place for all we share it with. 

I encourage you all to visit through the links above and perhaps have your lives enriched and expanded by sharing in another perspective

Namaste 

Mom … A poem for my mom.

I am grateful for your gift to me
As I free fall into my destiny
Thank you for your love
Thank you for believing in me
As I brake the chains
Being the spirit I was meant to be
Thank you for believing in me
I will meet my fate and you will see
The dreams I chase as I fall free
You are the only one who believed in me

At times no one else did not even me
Thank you for believing in me
Helping become who I was meant to be
The love you gave unconditionally
Thank you for believing in me
I love you mom thank you for having me

Thank you for allowing me to share this thought. My mom is awesome and although she will never read this… I wrote it for her and had to share it in honor of her.

Only I….

My gift only I can give

To myself so I can live

I loved so very deep

Made a promise I can not keep

I made a promise to my soul

I lost a choice beyond my control

I co created a reality

Choices made not just by me

The hardest thing I had to do

Forgiving me for losing you

I played my part

In breaking our hearts

I have forgiven you

I now forgive me too

A new start forgiveness brings

A beautiful song my heart now sings

I now know the gift I give

Forgiving myself so I can live

My heart of gold will be held again

As I forgive and begin to mend

The next time I love so very deep

I will love myself equally

As I give myself the love I need

I have changed over the last seven years in such a beautiful way, as I shared some thoughts with a friend today I found the last of the deep issues that have held me in check. Most of our issues are self created, as they say we are our own worse enemy. I have been holding on to a piece of pain like a thorn in my lions paw in a way. I could pull it out yet fear that bit of pain as it exits the wound and the blood flows so to speak. The blood from such a wound is minimal yet the pain for a moment is excruciating. The pain I have endured by not pulling the thorn has been long and shallow yet constant. As I look at the years of change and my friend expressed the change in the last year has been so profound I asked why I still felt so troubled in one aspect and one part of my life.

I had a dream that I recalled last night, for me to recall a dream from my sleep is very rare and I shared the dream and thoughts as well as the feelings I observed trying not to judge them or embrace them. We talked about my thoughts and my friend suggested it was time to embrace my part of the drama I co created and forgive myself. I realized it wasn’t the loss of my partner so to speak that I was not forgiving myself for. It was my promise to myself that I would not ruin the partnership and would do all I could do to make it my last and an everlasting relationship. Even and perhaps especially a person that has chosen to grow and change in such a deep way, with such powerful energy, from such a powerful place can make a mistake that has a very deep result.

A few years back before I really chose to be me I could have just walked away and never looked back. Now I am knowing who I am and in doing so the work of recognizing the ego and learning from it has exposed the thorn for what it is and as I pulled it much to my surprise I shed not a tear nor do I feel the pain I thought I would feel. I suppose I have grown and changed in a profound way. I forgive myself so I can live as me the beautiful soul and human being I was born to be.

I can share this thought in my way and thank you all for being part of such change in my world. I have many friends that I would have not met had I not chosen to know me and who I am. I have shaken 100’s of thousands of hands in doing so absorbed the energy of those people and shared with them mine. That in its own right is a gift many may never experience nor appreciate the significance of. The greatest gifts of love I have been receiving in the last few years and many as of late shared within the realm of technology and blogging has been a great form of sharing that love. Both sides of the coin are shared by so many beautiful people sharing their highs and lows and in turn doing the same in sharing their thoughts and comments along with the compliments and the support through those highs and lows. Much love flows in many forms and ways I am grateful for the affirmations shared by many as the love we give is equal to the love we take.

Thank you all for sharing your love as I share mine in such a positive way the simplest smile says so much on a cloudy day. Thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts and perhaps a smile or two as I put this thorn in the garbage can and dump it so it won’t get stuck in another paw. Thank you for sharing your smiles and sharing your love being the change positive, helping to make our world a better place for all we share it with! 🙂

400 days… A poeticly expressed sentiment.

400 days since you walked away,

 feeling like I was meant to be alone,

not to have a loving home

 the rest of my time to roam,

 or roll like a rolling stone.

 Although the time has past, my love will always last until the end of time

 forever etched in my mind

 the words I can not find to express what’s on my mind.

400 days I looked inside

 questioned my foolish pride,

 with every tear I cried the pain began to subside.

 Although no longer with you I reside,

 I feel you deep inside, a truth I can not hide.

 I told myself 400 days ago

 that’s the way it is just let it go,

 the love I have so deep in my very soul for you

 says to leave it be is best for you,

 even if it isn’t what I want to do.

 Happiness is what I want for you; I must do what I have to do, even if it hurts,

 to hurt you would be worse.

400 days of loneliness, longing for the tenderness

, feelings of despair repressed believing you would say,

sorry I walked away.

 The words I longed to hear from you,

 to know your love was true.

 the words I forgive you, sang in my heart so blue,

 I believed your heart sang them too.

400 days have past I have given up at last numb

lost all hope of ever hearing your voice, accepting your choice.

 400 days have taken their toll,

 the only thing saving me my soul, has helped me let go,

 your walking away helped me grow in a way you will never know.

400 days since you walked away,

 I am finally ready to say… i love you and its okay!

I am ready for a love that will stay, one that won’t walk away

 the love I found deep in my soul 400 days in a row.

Tears no longer flow, as the smile begins to grow

 a gift of grace from my soul

 one that you will never see,

 the beautiful smile on me

 400 days after you walked away from me.

I thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts in an artistic way. I was asked by a dear friend why I chose to express myself in such a way. I had expressed that when I feel a powerful thought or feeling I choose to share it from my heart in a loving and beautiful way. Not being one that has learned colorful expression I do the best I can to share in a non vulgar way. I am from a family of farmers and construction workers that didn’t learn to express their thoughts or feelings as men and rather than speak from their hearts they embraced the crude and vulgar ways of old. I choose to evolve and grow in a positive way leaving the vulgar and base behind expressing from both my heart and mind in a loving way that is kind. Even the negatives in our lives are positives if we change our perspectives and our attitudes. At least that is my feeling and I believe that poetic expression even basic or crudely expressed has a softer more beautiful effect on me as a human being and a writer.

Thank you for sharing with me your time in reading my posts and the smiles you share by doing so. I also wish to say thank you for being the change positive in our world sharing your love and your smiles making our world a better and more beautiful place for all we share it with. J Thank you! Peace!

Forget me not… A poem and a painting


Forget me not… A painting and a poem by Joe Bradshaw

Forget me not when I am not there

There is a place we shall forever share

Deep in my heart and in my prayers

Even though you are not here

 In my heart I hold you dear

even though I have not

 seen you in over a year

Love they say is letting go

Let go I have, just dreams remain

I love you in my heart just the same

                                                                     Forget me not

I thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts and express myself in an artistic way. The painting was for a young lady and the poem a beautiful Queen I have not forgot. I have accepted and have great love in my humble and grateful heart.

I hope we can all share a smile share some love and help make our world a better place for all we share it with. 🙂 Thank you again for your time and your smiles and making our world a more positive and beautiful place.

Hundreds of Gurus

Lessons I have learned from hundreds of gurus
Some even practiced black magic and voodoo
They effect our world and the things that you do
Some of them teach religious things
Or the gifts that inside of you peace brings
Tranquility of the sound as bells ring
Lessons learned when logic and reason are lost
Wisdom and knowledge obtained at a cost
The pain you feel after such a tragic loss
I have no more material things
Physical objects hard work and money bring
I have only the love.of my inner being
Wisdom shared and lessons learned
Wishes and desires for which I have yearned
Caring for others with the money I earned
Those that I cared for
Are with me no more
As again with nothing I head for the door
A fortune I have made
A fortune I have spent
No roof over my head no way to pay the rent
I share my thoughts
Through the pain I have wrought
The gift of hundreds of gurus have taught
Material things are nice
Love with another is love shared twice
The best of all the advice
Love who you are and who you have been
Love the people you meet and treat them as friends
To learn to love yourself is the lesson at the end

“Happy Mother’s Day Sierra” A poem for my daughter?


The first and only I will share with you

As I first cut the cord making one from two

Your tiny body almost blue in my hands

Tear in my eye as I became a man

You would love and understand

On this day as you celebrate your first

Unconditional love at its best and worst

With a daughter of your own

Like you were to me

 The greatest treasure ever known

I watched you dream and so many you had

I wished them for you and never wanted to see you sad

From my little Princess you grew

Little squeaky I used to call you

In to the beautiful Woman to be treated like a Queen

My beautiful daughter Sierra Jean

I won’t call you mom except on this day

Although my favorite for you, Blossom I very well may

My gift for you my daughter on this your first day

Happy Mother’s day in my own artistic way

I love you Sierra

That’s what your dad would say

By: Joe Bradshaw 2013


I wanted to share something as I have been spending much of my time with an awards page here as well as working on several other projects soon to be shared. I did have my daughter on my mind and up coming mothers day. I wrote a poem for her I am going to send framed and I wondered before I did so what you thought of the poem? If your dad wrote this for you would it touch your heart?


I thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts and perhaps a smile or two. I also hope we can all look inside and find that smile sharing some love and making our world a better place for all we share it with. Please be the change positive and make our world a better place.
