Love inspires me, love carries me on it's momentum to all I desire. Everyone and everything inspires me as well!"

The Law of Attraction Simplified

Clarence at Sedona - Bell Rock Vortex

Tune in to the St Patrick's day show - 3/17/14 to hear Clarence describe in plain terms how - what you think affects how you feel, and that, how you feel affects what comes into your life. Taking the mystery out of terms like 'Vibrational Match' Clarence walks us through how from the moment we wake up we are engaging our auto-pilot to shape the day. He describes where in the process we should disengage the auto-pilot in order to shape our day and ultimately our lives. The secret to moving from various emotional states is made clear and simple and is one major key to creating the life we long for.

The principles of these universal Laws of Attraction have been shared via the movie The Secret and many other lessor known films and writings. 

This episode has got to be the best illustration and short explanation out today allowing anyone to understand and begin using it in their lives immediately. 

Before the airing of this episode Clarence spent the previous two days in Sedona Arizona with Abraham-Hicks taking a deep dive into the Laws of Attraction. Abraham-Hicks produces what is considered the original source material for the current Law of Attraction wave that is sweeping the world.

In this one hour episode, Clarence has been able to take what can be a daunting subject filled with complex concepts such as Quantum Physics, Vortex creation and Energy / Vibrational alignment and describe it in an easily understood manner. Of course there is so much more to this subject matter. But if you are just begining to understand this universal Law then you won't want to miss this episode.
