Being Happy Magnetically Attracts What You Want!

Posted on 04 March 2009 by Dr. Karen

Are you still wondering how to manifest what you want (like your soulmate) using the law of attraction?
Rhonda Byrne, creator of “The Secret” wrote…”The shortcut to anything you want in your life is to BE and FEEL happy now! It is the fastest way to bring money and anything else you want into your life.”

Marci Shimoff, acclaimed teacher in “The Secret,” passionately agrees. Marci has cracked the code on happiness and developed a remarkable 7-step process to boost your happiness–no matter the uncertainties in your life.

I agree 100%: happiness is a powerful attractor. And, I strongly urge you to read the letter below. You’ll instantly see why it is endorsed by other teachers in “The Secret” such as Jack Canfield, John Assaraf, Marie Diamond, James Ray, Michael Beckwith, Hale Dwoskin, Lisa Nichols, Bob Doyle, and Bill Harris. Keep reading…
Dear Friend:

I was shocked to learn on the radio that people who are happy earn $750,000+ more in their lifetime than others. That’s an eye-opener especially given today’s economy.

More than 255 studies show that money doesn’t buy happiness. Studies say it is the other way around: Happiness brings money.

Happy people are more fulfilled, relaxed, and peaceful, even in this recession. They naturally have greater opportunities, better health, deeper friendships, more success, and so on. Their happiness is NOT because they get all of the good stuff. Rather, they’re naturally happier and, as a result, the good stuff comes.

…including high wages. Great relationships. Career advancements. Customers. Great deals. Contentment at home. Isn’t that the best way to live life? Not chasing money or external things to make you happy, but simply being happy from the inside out and enjoying the rewards.

You may have heard of Marci Shimoff’s phenomenal bestseller “Happy for No Reason,” which has just now come out in paperback for less than $15–it is so useful in today’s world that it’s published in 28 languages. This is a breakthrough book, a practical book — not a Pollyanna-ish book — that shows you step by step how to raise your baseline of happiness.

This means that no matter what happens at work or in your relationships– no matter what stress plows into you – no matter the financial news — no matter how dire the circumstances — you will AUTOMATICALLY return to a higher level of happiness than you have today. It’s clear: you don’t have to get richer, thinner, or smarter to be happier.

That’s huge. That’s why after I read the first chapter, I exclaimed, “Holy cow! This will change the world.”

This book should be on every desk… in every office… every school… every nightstand. It should be in the hands of everyone you know. And for the price, you ought to consider buying copies for your friends and family.

You see… author Marci Shimoff has broken the code on happiness. All we’ve ever really wanted in life is to be happy. And Marci’s book shows you how. She gives you a clear, 7-step program that’s effective and fast. It works from the inside, out.

Happiness is “The Secret”

to the Law of Attraction

* * *

Rhonda Byrne, creator of “The Secret” wrote…

“I want to let you in on a secret to ‘The Secret.’ The shortcut to anything you want in your life is to BE and FEEL happy now! It is the fastest way to bring money and anything else you want into your life.”

You may have seen Marci Shimoff in “The Secret” movie. Marci is an undisputed expert on the Law of Attraction.

Like Rhonda, she knows that Happiness is a powerful attractor. She knows — and she teaches you in the book and on the free recordings — that happiness helps draw to you whatever you want.

That’s how she became a #1 New York Times best-selling author, even before the paperback was released. People have purchased more than 13 million copies of her books. That is extraordinary considering that most books never sell more than 2500 copies. She is a mega successful author who knows that happiness is the secret to life.

And she knows how to help anyone — YOU! — quickly become happier, and remain happy for the rest of your life. And that’s what you get in her book and in the special bonus recordings that you will receive right now when you order her book.

Why was Marci on NBC’s “The Today Show?” Why did PBS produce a special on happiness with Marci as the host? Because as one magazine declared, “Happiness is the newest fashion.” People are finally figuring out – with the help of the lousy economy — that it isn’t the new flat screen TV, or the iPhone, or the new wardrobe that makes you happy.

It’s the old chicken/egg thing. And happiness definitely comes first. Marci figured out how you can have happiness bubble up naturally from within, which is why the national media is clamoring to get her attention. She discovered that everything you need to be happier is inside – you just the simple instructions to uncover it. And, you should, because…

* * *

Unhappiness shortens your life

* * *

Research shows that unhappy people:

* Have a greater risk of heart disease, strokes, hypertension, infections, and Type 2 diabetes

* Release more of the stress hormone cortisol. They have a higher heart rate and may be at higher risk for heart attacks

* Are 65% more likely to get a cold

* Are less likely to find a spouse

* Live nine years fewer than their happy counterparts

So… when you are happy, you are likely to live longer. You are more emotionally and physically healthy, creative, energetic, compassionate, and successful!

…..In Marci’s book you will

…..take a test of 20 questions

…..to determine your level of happiness

You’ll then be given a practical 7-step strategy to increase your level of happiness and decrease the risks.


* * *

Beware of this advice:

* * *

“Find the things that make you happy and do more of those.”

That sounds good, but it’s a trap!

Your life would quickly fall out of balance if your happiness depended on your 401K, your home, your job, your health, your relationships…

You want to automatically generate happiness all of the time NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES. You don’t want to rely on anything else for your happiness. Not achievements, goals, money, relationships, a new car, fancy clothes, other people, or anything else “out there.”

You learn how in Marci’s book. It’s beautiful, simple, and practical, and written for today’s times.


* * *

How to beat your genetics

* * *

Believe it or not, happiness is 50% genetics. That’s why some people are just happy-go-lucky with everything turning up roses. That’s also why some people just seem to be rich automatically, without trying, even with the stock market at all time lows.

But that’s not the whole story. 50% of your happiness level is NOT genetics. The other 50% can be controlled by you! In the same way that you can crank the thermostat to warm up on chilly days, you can reprogram your happiness “set-point” to a higher level of peace and well-being.

This happiness set-point is the level of happiness that you maintain most of your life. If you are unhappy now, you will likely be unhappy 10 years from now… unless you do something to change it.

In her book Marci gives you a 7-step practical program to raise your happiness set-point quickly, easily, and effectively… so that you will be happier and happier in all areas of your life.

* * *

The Happy 100

* * *

Marci interviewed 100 unconditionally happy people. She combined the interviews with cutting-edge research and knowledge from the world’s leading experts in the fields of positive psychology and neurophysiology.

From that she developed the powerful, proven 7-step program that you can incorporate into your life to be happier right now — no matter where you start, no matter what’s going on in your life.

You’ll discover profound first-person stories of people who’ve applied these steps to their own lives to become Happy for No Reason.

You’ll read phenomenal tales from a former drug-dealer turned minister, a hit film-maker, a political refugee, and a famous actress who escaped a “family curse,” as well as stories from doctors, nurses, mothers, teachers and business executives.

You’ll learn practical, down-to-earth strategies based on the new science of happiness that will help you experience happiness “from the inside out.”

You don’t have to have happy genes, win the lottery, lose 20 pounds, or become a saint. By the time you finish reading Marci’s book, you will know how to experience an authentic state of sustained happiness for the rest of your life.

Add the bonus recordings and you have an unbelievable course in happiness that will put you on a course of miracles in your life. For less than $15!


* * *

Are you ready to be happier?

* * *

I know that if you have read to the end of this letter you are quite likely to buy Marci’s book and receive the bonus resources and gifts. I shudder to think about the unfortunate few who will just go on with their day and not order the book now.

I am absolutely convinced of the power within this book. I hope my passion, sincerity, and conviction comes through in this letter. I hope you grab this opportunity to add so many riches in your life — for so few dollars right now.

Too Short To Be Lovable?

Posted on 07 March 2008 by Dr. Karen

I decided to include this heartfelt letter as part of my blog. Mr. P. writes:“Hi Dear Dr. Karen. I am 22 y.o. Iranian, height 166 cm and Weight 120 kg. I am so depressed because I think no girl or woman on the planet will love me. I don’t have a girlfriend. I think that my entire problem is caused by my short stature. I have thought about suicide four times, help me..”Dear Mr. P.,I am easily able to feel your deep sadness. In fact, I had a little cry just to release the feeling from my body. I understand your sadness. I’ve been there before my friend. You are not as alone as you think.

As part of my healer work, I asked the Angels to help you. Two volunteered to be by your side, day and night. I don’t know if you can feel their presence, but they want you to know that you are loved. It’s OK even if you don’t believe in Angels. I’ve seen many a miracle in my life, so I have no doubt they exist.

Now, let’s take a look at your beliefs. Beliefs manifest our reality. I love the saying “I’ll See it when I believe it” which is why I put the quote on a T-shirt at my Law of Attraction Store. Mr. P., your belief is that no woman would ever love you because of your height. I’m assuming that you are judging your height as being too short, right?

Can I ask you one question? Would you be willing to change your beliefs? In other words, would you be willing to let go of the belief that you can’t be loved because you are “too short”? You see, in your reality, it may feel “true”, but that is because you have created your reality with your belief. In my world, I see plenty of short men who are happily in relationship. In fact, my friend Garry is shorter than you are and is an Asian man.

I grew up with the belief in my Chinese culture that tall women were very unattractive. My mother told me that because she is taller than most Chinese men. She spent the greater part of her life hunched over to hide her tallness. Nowadays she looks like a model. In the North American culture, she is absolutely stunningly beautiful at 5 foot 7 inches! See, in my culture, it was the woman’s height that was the issue, not the man’s! My friend Garry is happily married to a Caucasian woman who is at least 4 inches taller and they have a beautiful little girl.

When you believe something, the Universe will rearrange itself to make you RIGHT. In my eBook, Creating Your Fairytale Love Life in Chapter 5, I show you some techniques you can use to “change” your belief state, so you may wish to take advantage of the exercises and videos in that chapter.

I can tell you that in my world, Mr. P., there is no such thing as too short, too tall, too weird, too fat etc. Everyone can and deserves to be loved. The question is –  do you love yourself?

The girlfriend that you wish for is not there to give you what you cannot give yourself (love). Many people (so you are not alone) are looking for someone to love them so they will feel lovable. The opposite needs to happen in order to manifest a wonderful relationship. You must love and appreciate yourself first in order to attract the wonderful relationship.

There is a Secret nobody told us when we were kids. The “other” person in a relationship is not there to make us whole! They are not supposed to be responsible for making us happy or feel loved. Nope! Do you want to know the real purpose for relationships? The REAL purpose for relationships is to grow ourselves spiritually…that’s it. That’s all.

So Dear Mr. P. You may not believe me, but you are already loved. The substance from which we all come, that which I call The Universe (others call The One, God, Divine etc.) loves you. Now it is your turn to love you.

If you REALLY want change, here is your homework assignment. I really hope you take this challenge and run with it: For the next 30 days, everyday create a list of at least 10 things you love and appreciate about yourself. While you are writing, if any negative thought comes up, just say “cancel” or “pass” and keep writing, focusing on the positive. It could be that you appreciate yourself because you have great rhythm and you love to dance, or that you are extremely kind to your parents, or that you absolutely love history books etc. It doesn’t matter what it is, just make a new habit of appreciating yourself daily.

While you are writing, remember to really FEEL the feelings of appreciation. It is the MAGNETIC substance that draws what we want into our lives. The truth in my situation was that when I began truly appreciating my qualities rather than criticizing myself most of the time, it was the start of the happiest time of my life.

Lastly, Mr. P. I highly recommend that you consider taking the Enlighted Warrior Training Camp http://www.enlightenedwarrior.com  run by Peak Potentials training. Year after year there are stories of people on the edge of suicide when they arrive at the camp and they leave a completely changed person…strong, compassionate and empowered. You can receive a discount on tuition, I believe, by being referred by a graduate so I will give you my referral number: 232364.

It is important for you to receive support. Having suicidal thoughts is very serious and I urge you to seek professional care as soon as possible. Talk to your doctor and ask for a referral to an empathetic counselor or psychologist. I also suggest that you read the new bestseller by Marci Shimoff, Happy for No Reason.
