Any trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles will leave any person asking themselves, “what the (bleep) happened to social etiquette?”    choosemanners0a0a28heart29-default

Or, is it just me? I was recently at the DMV and was a bit grossed out by people sneezing very near me and several VERY loudly talking cell phone users.

What does this have to do with choosing our way to our desires, living a conscious life and being manifesting ninjas, you ask?

How does social etiquette relate to having the health, success and happiness we desire?

It circles back to those things because social etiquette, and being conscious and considerate of others, is a choice.  And if we aren’t being conscious out in the world and in our lives, we will most likely attract that energy back to us. 

Some would say that if we experience rude or impolite people on a regular basis, we may want to look at how we may be showing up in an unconscious way in our own lives.  

Even if it’s being unconscious to our own body by eating food that doesn’t serve us, or silently harboring negative energy towards someone. Just because it’s silent to them doesn’t mean it’s silent to the universe.

Sometimes I find all of this easy to believe (when it isn’t me getting the karmic 2 x 4 upside the head), and other times I brush it off a bit too easily.  Who me? No way! 

It’s the common trap of believing in certain things, but then not applying them in our own lives.

That’s not how it works though.

We don’t get to believe in these spiritual laws only when they serve our agenda..…often an agenda of not wanting to look at our own negative patterns.

If we expect money and wealth, we will get it. If we expect lack of health, we will get it. If we expect happiness in our lives, then we will get it.

I am being totally transparent here. I make mistakes. Being conscious is about owning our mistakes and owning what we are experiencing in life.

I may not be out sneezing on people in public, or loudly talking on my cell phone in the DMV or other public places, but what I noticed is that I was having a strong reaction to these people. I was also having a strong reaction to drivers.  My energy was not calm, clear or grounded when I got in the car. My energy was a  bit expectant of sharing the road with bad drivers. So guess what I manifested?

People not using their turn signals. People on their cell phones while driving. People driving way too slow. People always seeming to be asleep while driving.

I had developed a mild case of road rage, and that is why I was attracting these negative situations in my life. I was being annoyed and then judgmental about fellow drivers and expecting rude, unconscious behavior from them. So, that’s what I got!

Once I became aware of this, I shifted my energy and shifted attracting things or people to be annoyed with. 

The universe delivers what we expect. It may not come in the exact package we expect, but we will receive a similiar energy back.

That is why it’s so important to be aware of what’s happening around us.

What are we attracting? What beliefs are we consiously aware of? What beliefs are under the surface?

Getting clear about how you really, really, truly feel about things is the first and most important part in learning to create your dream life with the power of choice + manifesting.

The power to choose how we react, what we think, how we feel and what we choose to focus on is the very thing that will help us attract health, wealth, success and happiness in our lives.

What do you expect in your life?  Do you see a direct correlation between what you expect and what you create? Let me know. I love hearing from you!!  Leave a comment and let me know if you relate to this and how you see it showing up in your life.

Ciao for now!
