Hey beloveds, it’s Laura Fredrickson with the Institute of True Wealth here in Tulum, Mexico, and I wanted to talk about an epidemic that is really running rampant right now, and it's emotional epidemic. It's based within relationships and what I referred to as being in relationship with potential.
I'm working with a lot of couples, a lot of people right now that are actually leaving their relationships; whether that be in a divorce, any type of a separation because that person that they've been with is not been fulfilling them, and the primary aspect of their focus has been on what they can change about that person, and what they can fix.
So I just want to remind everybody that our happiness and our fulfillment is a choice. It’s something that we experience from the inside out, not the outside in. Our partners cannot make us happy; we are responsible for that choice.
I also want to remind everyone that our relationships are merely reflections of the relationship we have with ourselves. So I just invite you if you are in a relationship to create a list of the things that irritate you about your partner. Focus for just a moment, it’s a powerful exercise if done so with deliberate intention; focus on what is lacking in the relationship and create a list of that; create a “no column” of that. And then I invite you to shift your attention to what it is you prefer in that relationship. So you're going to focus on what it is you prefer to experience. That's step one.
Step two is you're going to actually notice whatever those qualities are you going to reflect back to yourself, and you want to make sure that you're actually embodying those qualities the majority of the time. This isn’t about being perfect, but once again, you need to be embodying those in your own life for the most part. Something miraculous will happen when you do that.
Now remember, it takes about 30 days for outward manifestation and new evidence to appear. But once you actually start noticing the things that you’re wanting to experience in your relationship and you bring that back to yourself, I invite you to start giving yourself the very thing that you're wanting your partner to give you. Something magical as I mentioned before will happen, and you'll start to notice that they're actually starting to embody those characteristics as well.
As the late Wayne Dyer said “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. So I want to welcome everybody to do that. The number one reason you would do that is it’s just going to feel better, and there's nothing more valuable to us than how we feel.
Sending love from sunny, beautiful Mexico, and I hope you have an amazing day. Until next time.

I was bulimic and anorexic for eight years of my life, and most of my thoughts were based on depression. I mean, I just focused on the negative; I hated my life, I hated my relationship with my parents, I hated my relationship with my dad, I used to fight with my mother all the time, literally fight with my mother all the time, and every single day I would just wake up hating my life.
And what ended up happening is obviously that revealed itself to me in my body and I didn’t want to eat, and I of course was throwing up my food and lost dramatic amounts of weight and it was just a really horrible, horrible experience as you can imagine, and my relationship to my body was, I don’t want to say it forever changed, but for a large period of my life was very, very delicate relationship that I had.
So for me it’s really important to share that these practices of where we place our attention is actually to prevent us for going down the path of disease, and a diseased body which can manifest in many different forms to literal depression, to of course the sickness and the illnesses that our body represent in the form of cancer and all of these other diseases.
For me it’s incredibly important to, while we are well, to continue to do the daily practices of placing our attention on the aspects of our life that are life affirming to us and that feel good to notice.
Love for self, love for myself. It’s an interesting subject, because when I speak about it like that, a lot of people go “God, that’s so selfish,” that is higher selfish because everything in my life is an extension of the relationship I have with myself.
So the greatest journey I’ve embarked on, and continue to embark on, is absolutely loving myself completely. And that’s an ongoing journey that continues every day.
I have an amazing collection of incredible people that I call my family, that are mirrors for me, incredible realizations about the areas that I’m not fully loving myself when I go into judgment of others, because I realize there’s no such thing as an other; it’s all an extension of me and the relationship that I have with myself and just coming to set your profound realization that it’s all me!
So love me, and I’ve really moved into, I would say, one of the most profound loves and courtships I’ve ever had with myself and with the divine. And I’m so incredibly blessed and the appreciation practices helped to cultivate that romance for me in a very powerful way.
Hey everyone, it’s Laura Fredrickson of the Institute of True Wealth, and I want to give you an important absolutely vital reminder that it is so incredibly valuable that you honor yourself, that you be you.
We’re at time of authentic abundance; the actual health well being of our planet is so reliant on our ability to honor our own gifts, talents, abilities, and to be expressing that. If you are not expressing that, and you’re feeling like you are just flat lining in your life and you don’t have energy and enthusiasm, I guarantee it’s because there’s an incredibly talented gifted aspect of you, an area that you’re wanting to share your gifts, talents, abilities and love with others and you are not doing that; and it’s actually holding you down.
And when you can start to just share that little by little, don’t compare yourself to others; comparison is the most horrible emotional cancer you can possibly give to yourself. You have to actually start from a place of “What is it that I can do? What is it that is priceless about me? What’s invaluable about me?” return to the essence of who you are.
Reallocate your focus from “What am I doing? What can I do to be a benefit?” and come back to who you’re being. Because it’s about being the change you wish to see in the world. It’s not about doing the change you wish to see in the world.
One of my favorite quotes by Howard Thurmanis “Don’t ask what the world needs to come alive; ask what you need to come alive and then go do that”. Because what the world needs is for each and every single one of us to be alive, and the best way for us to be alive is to just honor and share the essence of who we truly are. And there is that in you, so if there’s any part of you that wonders or doubts “I don’t really have any talents, I don’t really have anything to share”, it’s absolutely a lie, you are hallucinating. It’s the simple act of just being present, and just following your heart. When you follow your heart and you share from that place abundance abounds.
We are intended to actually be doing what comes easiest to us and your path and your experience actually is what is in form your unique gifts, characters and abilities. So I invite you to just really choose that, it starts with putting this stuff on the ground and saying “You know what? I decide from now on to honor my gifts”.
And when you choose that, the universe conspires and starts to drop energetic bread crumbs in your path, and you start to realize and remember ways in which you can share your gifts, ways in which you can give back. And you just start to honor that little by little. And it makes such an effect and such a change.
So I want to honor you as a fellow traveler, I know how difficult it is sometimes to rise to the occasion, sometimes we get caught up and sort of shaking hands of mediocrity, but I invite you to consider this question: “If you knew you had it all, if you knew that you are absolutely already perfect and whole (because the universe doesn’t make mistakes, you are here for a reason), what would you do then?”
So get rid of having to decide, having to find out “I need this”, what I call the “if then, when them” syndrome, if I can do this, if I get this degree then I can just honor what you have now and move forward from that place. You’ll be amazed at how much better it feels and you’re attracting based on how you feel, so winning combination…
Much love, until next time.
I'm blessed to be back in Tulum, Mexico. Seaweed is plentiful, ocean is as beautiful as I remember it, and I just wanted to send this amazing, beautiful, peaceful vibe your way, and remind you the power of your attention, the power of your thoughts; not to be underestimated. Attend to your thoughts and your beliefs for they in turn become your reality.
it’s Laura Fredrickson of the Institute of True Wealth and I’m here in**** on another beautiful amazing day.
And I just had an incredible experience of irritation because I’m so absolutely committed to sharing my gifts and sharing my heart, and sometimes I get really caught up in this supreme state of perfection and it ends up just absolutely chocking and asphyxiating me in my own creativity, and talents, and willingness and desire to share my heart.
So if you can relate to this in any way, I just want to invite you to consider where in your life are you holding yourself to such supreme standards that you’re actually not showing up for your gifts, and sharing them.
And I’m telling you we’re in an era of authentic abundance; it is so vital that every single one of us just takes one step forward whatever that is to share your gifts, to share your wisdom, to share your teachings, to share your love, and when you do that it opens up a channel, like right now I feel so much better than I did ten minutes ago micromanaging how I was going to shoot this video, and what was going to be right, and my dear friend and videographer Hunter and I are just like “arggg”, it’s like “you know what? Just let it all go!” Just show up and be authentic and allow yourself to express and things flow from that place.
So let go of perfection, honor your progress, realize that life is a process, it’s a practice, be patient to yourself, with yourself, and operate from a higher perspective. And when you can come from that place you interact with life in such a better space, you end up being kind to yourself, it feels better, there’s nothing more valuable to you than how you feel, and you’ll be amazed at about how much productivity you actually can offer from that place of pure authenticity.
Have an amazing day.
