The Law of Attraction is all about the feelings and attitudes you put out, and the expression of what desires you have that bring them to you. It's "The Power of Positive Thinking" in action.
One of the big issues I had this year was cleaning all of the carpet on the new bass boat. The cruiser we used to have only had carpet below deck and scrubbing down the cockpit above was just a matter of wash down. The bass boat is carpet from front to back. It's nice, looks pretty, and is probably more comfortable than if it were fiberglass or whatever, but considering the type of use it gets, it's a little bit of a pain as well. It mean getting some serious stains out even though I had tried to keep it cleaned up as it got used all summer long.
This was the first time I ever had to use spot stain remover to clean up carpets. It was worth it though. The carpets all look as good as new, and now ready for next spring when we get out again.

Gather up the pictures you want to have represent the desire you have for the Universe to bring. If it is a specific house, or type of home, a car, a boat or other material thing, just get pictures off of the internet that represent either the exact example, or similar ones. You don't have to worry about copyright, these are not images you are going to use online.
If your desire is an abstract concept like a stronger relationship, or finding love, just get pictures that show the type of feeling you are looking for. A couple holding hands while they walk on the beach, a couple getting married, etc.
Download each picture to a file on your computer that will be easy to find. Have all of the pictures in that one single file. The next step is for PC users. I'm sure this is possible for Mac users as well, but I am not sure of the steps required. If you have a PC, just right click on your desktop. Select personalize from the drop down box that appears, and when the window opens, click on "desktop background" in the lower left hand area of the window.
From the box that opens, select "browse" and look for the file that you placed your vision pictures in, and click on it. Then go down to the bottom and choose a rotation speed. I usually chose 30 seconds per image. You can choose any speed you feel will work best, but usually having the images rotate at least one full turn throughout the day so you see all of them is best. Avoid selecting a speed for each picture that will not let that happen, for instance every 6 hours per image or only change image once a day. The idea is to see each image often, so you want them to rotate continuously.
Finally, click save and you are done. Now when you are at your computer, make sure all screens are minimized when you are not using them so you see your vision board rotating on your desktop.
I started out using the standard stagnant vision board on a piece of posterboard. It was so limited though. I have a rotating vision board that consists of over 500 images of the specific things I want to have materialize, even though it is really only 2 items and 1 specific area in location. It is a number of shots of each of the three things that constantly give me a good picture to use in my visualizations.

As someone who regularly suffers from back pain that comes from an improper sleeping position, that cervical pillow is a fantastic deal. When doing any heavy lifting, my back is also always in danger. LGMedSupply also has an adjustable, heavy duty back brace. Another interesting product, offered for a great price, and even free with some purchases such as the back brace, is the TENS Unit. This is great for chiropractors, masseuses, and even for home or work use. It is a safe and dependable way to get rid of pain anywhere, and targets the areas specifically for relief that is as close to magic as you can get.

At first, my daughter asked me about the brands and styles of guitar I would suggest. After doing her own research, however, it was becoming apparent that I was going to be the beneficiary of a lot of new ideas on the subject. It has been a long time since I have personally held a guitar and the new brands and styles are quite amazing. One brand that is under serious consideration is the godin multiac. It's a very versitile acoustic guitar that offers many electronic benefits as well. I have always loved both accoustic and electric guitars. Alexis is happy with her current accoustic, but one of the Godin's would give her a lot more options for rich and powerful sound.
Sometimes it is just amazing what you can find tucked away even in an industrial area.There's a place called Isle a la Cache here along the Des Plaines river. The area is surrounded by industry such as the Citgo oil refinery. You'd never think such an oasis (and it's not small, lots of hiking) would be nestled in there. It was along an old trading route where settlers and French traders would make deals with the local Potowatomi. There's even a little museam with artifacts and models of stuff.
Here are some pics

The biggest thing that we still have to do is remodel the bathroom. Along with being seriously outdated, it is also run-down and in need of repair. Since there are also repair issues it is so important to save money while at the same time getting quality fixtures. Looking for special items like bathroom sinks from qualitybath.com means we can get the great looks we want at a price that will leave us enough left over for the repair work needed without breaking the budget.
Once we get the bathroom done, we will actually finally be in a position where we can relax and just do normal upkeep. As much as I like tinkering, and to a point like doing rehabs and projects on the places I live, this was a lot more than I would have chosen to do normally. I am looking forward to being done with the major repairs so that I can have more fun doing the kinds of home projects I like to do.
