You cannot solve a problem in the same frequency in which it was created.

   

The real reality is we have come here to thrive and prosper and live this grand human experience in lighthearted joy, not in struggle and pain. . . and to harvest our desires in the absolute knowledge that we can have it all once we learn how to handle our energies, meaning, our emotions.

      
In our anxious state of needing to find a reason why things never seemed to go the way we wanted them to, we figured it had to be the fault of some factor separate from us: the government, the economy, our boss, our marriage, our background, our education, our rotten luck, even God.  Or maybe it was because we weren't worthy, didn't measure up, were too filled with sins, hadn't been fully put to the test, or had not in some way or other paid our rightful dues.  The reality -- the real reality -- is that we are already worthy, there is no test to pass, and sin is nothing but a man-made abomination to foster control by others.
  
The vibration of appreciation is the most profoundly important frequency we can hold, for it is the closest thing to cosmic love that exists. When we're appreciating, we're in perfect vibrational harmony with our Source energy, or God energy--call it what you will.
   

We may have been taught, and therefore have believed that we live at the mercy of others, or fate, or luck, or chance; certainly that is what most people on this planet live by. But once you start to see the Law of Attraction in operation, you ultimately come to understand that there is no such thing as a victim; never has been, never will be. There is no good luck, bad luck, good fortune, or coincidence. There is no destiny, fate, or providence. There is no big judge in the sky keeping score on how right or wrong you've been. There is no karma from past lives nor penance. That's all victim stuff. And there is not a victim among us, only co-creators in thought and feeling, powerful magnets attracting like bees to honey the matching frequency of our ever-flowing vibrations.

     

We create by feeling, not by thought. Thatís right. We get what we
get by the way we feel, not by trying to slug
things into place or control or minds.

The more we become aware of who and what we truly are, the fewer problems we have.

   

It's time to take our heads out of the sand and accept
that it's no accident we get what we get in life.

   

Whatever youíre feeling is what youíre vibrating and
what youíre vibrating is what youíre attracting.

   

    
Lynn Grabhorn began her professional life in advertising in New York City. She also founded and directed an audiovisual educational publishing company in Los Angeles, and ran a mortgage-brokerage firm in Washington.

In 1999 Lynn Grabhorn self-published her book Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting and it became a self-published best seller. It was so successful she made a wise decision and in 2000 arranged to have Hampton Roads Publishing publish and distribute the book. It went on to become a very successful world-wide best seller (sales in excess of 800,000 copies) and an iconic classic. It is estimated over 1.5 million people have read the book in some form or another.

In May of 2004 Lynn Grabhorn passed on.

Yes, life can be mysterious and confusing--but there's much of life that's actually rather dependable and reliable.  Some principles apply to life in so many different contexts that they can truly be called universal--and learning what they are and how to approach them and use them can teach us some of the most important lessons that we've ever learned.
My doctorate is in Teaching and Learning.  I use it a lot when I teach at school, but I also do my best to apply what I've learned to the life I'm living, and to observe how others live their lives.  What makes them happy or unhappy, stressed or peaceful, selfish or generous, compassionate or arrogant?  In this book, I've done my best to pass on to you what I've learned from people in my life, writers whose works I've read, and stories that I've heard.  Perhaps these principles can be a positive part of your life, too!
Universal Principles of Living Life Fully.  Awareness of these principles can explain a lot and take much of the frustration out of the lives we lead.
