The Conversation…

Bruce: How do you feel that mindfulness dovetails in with the law of Attraction?

JJ: Hand in hand. Just be in a state of allowing and that's what the Law of Attraction is about, it's about a state of allowing. They're not 100% the same but they're needed and they both co-exist at the same time all the time.

Bruce: When was the first time have you heard and learned about the Law of Attraction?

JJ: The first time I really understood the Law of Attraction on a different level about it was in 2002. My life coach at the time sent me an Abraham Hicks CD. When I heard “You are the creator of your own reality”, that really hit me pretty hard.

Bruce: What are your thoughts on the movie The Secret?

JJ: I think it did a good job of making people aware of the Law of Attraction but it did not do a good job explaining the power behind it.

Bruce: What are some of the tools that you use when someone first comes to you and seek out your coaching?

JJ: I run a 30-day manifestation challenge. I develop guided visualizations, meditations, that people can use.

Bruce: What are the biggest hurts and pains that people have who are coming to you for help.

JJ: Relationship is a big one. I have a lot of people who want to work on their relationship.

Effect on Emotions

  • When you're mindful, I call it being happy no matter what, even when I am challenged, even when I have to work through some stuff, the baseline of my joy is very high. It's like a pool that fills up with water.
  • You can enter the pool when there is no water and you are at the bottom, or when the water is near the top, when you enter in, you are always at the very top of where the water is.
  • And that is where my joy is, even when I have to go through issues or whatever I have to go through, my joy is always there.
  • Mindfulness has let me be happy no matter what.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • It's a big part, especially right now. I am working on a new process that involves deep breathing, holotropic breathing with a recording that I did a number of years ago with Dr. Wayne Dyer.
  • The recording is called I Am Wishes Fulfilled Meditation. It's literally the sound of the name of god, and when you breathe with this sound it opens up channels that we never even knew were there.
