Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting:
The Astonishing Power of Feelings

by Lynn Grabhorn

I had gotten caught up in the buzz of The Secret, and in particular, the law of attraction, over the past few weeks. In fact, I participated in a seminar with what can only be described as teeming with highly magnetic people. I began to marvel at the small changes that were being brought about, seemingly with the right attitude and amazingly without much effort. But then! Monday brought a new week with it, and with it, my computer crashed. Not only did my computer crash, but my cable internet connection went on the fritz, simultaneously giving me two Big Problems. How had I magnetized this kind of bad luck to myself, I wondered?

Well, while the computer tech was at work in my office on the computer, I took the opportunity to go through my mail. A new book had arrived to review — it was Lynn Grabhorn’s Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting: The Astonishing Power of Feelings. From the back cover, I could see it was also about the law of attraction. I immediately began reading to find out if I could work up that “oomph” again that I had been feeling prior to developing the technological problems with my computer — which had pretty much left me feeling deflated.

With Grabhorn’s buoyant style of writing, I soon forgot my problems and became immersed in the book. And I soon began to understand how things naturally occur: “The critical point to remember here is that the more we think about anything, whether it’s something we want in our lives or something we don’t want, the faster we’re going to magnetize it into our experience. That, in a nutshell, is the universal Law of Attraction: ‘That which is like unto itself is drawn.'”

I remember reading somewhere that worry is like negative prayer — why focus on the negatives when you may very well end up drawing that into your life? We, as evolving people, Grabhorn explains, are magnetic energy and we will attract what we are thinking, whether it’s negative or positive. So best to get into a positive frame of mind. And Grabhorn coaches us into the state we should strive to be in for optimal results. As an aside, the author obviously has led many workshops, which explains the rather odd spelling in various parts of the book: “feeeeel,” and “splennnndid” are just two examples.

Yet, we receive very good information: “What are your smallest, you biggest, your oldest, your newest, your most deeply hidden desires, ambitions, aspirations…the ones that are so far out, so impossible, so unobtainable, that never have you so much as whispered them aloud…to anyone…not even to God”? With reframing our desires, focusing on what we do want and forgetting about what we don’t want, these aspirations can be realized, says the author.

All in all, Grabhorn concludes, “We magnetically attract what we vibrate, and we have created it all, from fender benders to global wars.” So choose wisely in what how you channel your thoughts. I, for one, am going to full appreciate the computer from now and all it does for me! This book was what I needed to get me out of the temporary victim mode I found myself in — “why me?” — and back into getting my magnetic alignment straightened out.
