Are You In Relationship With Potential? Feeling Unfulfilled in Your Relationship?

Video Transcription

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.

Attention – Your Greatest Commodity

Video Transcription

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.

Self Love

Video Transcription

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.

Let Go Of Perfection

Video Transcription

Hi everyone,

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.

Let go of judgement! It ´s time to embrace our past and who we have become.

Hey everyone,

it’s Laura Fredrickson in the Institute of True Wealth. I'm actually here in Minnesota of all places; I haven't been here in about 10 years.

I'm here visiting my aunt and celebrating my heritage, my history. I'm here at the Viking festival today and now it doesn't seem like it, I just left all the chaos to come and record this video, but yeah, I'm here at the Viking festival really celebrating my Viking heritage. Prepping myself for my trip to Norway next month and religious feeling nostalgic, and also bit sentimental thinking about all of the people that have come before me that have forged their way through their own personal challenges.

Literally my great great great grandfather was ****Ericsson one of the original pioneers who literally crossed the Atlantic Ocean with such an incredible spirit and such a incredible devotion to adventure, that he was willing to risk his life. And I think about all of my relatives and all of my ancestors that have, once again, gone through whatever challenges they've gone through, and I'm so grateful for the adventurous spirit that I have, and for my ability to navigate change and to operate in the state of trust. 

And I really want to I encourage everybody to celebrate your life embrace all that has come before you. I know we have a tendency to really judge our experiences and judge our past and judge ourselves for what we could have done differently, or what maybe could have been different. And just really I truly feel with all of my heart that everything that has come before is been on purpose, has been for us, and it's definitely an integral element; everything that's come before is an aspect of what is and forms the unique beings that we are, and so just remember there's no one like you on this planet: never has been and never will be.

So embrace yourself, embrace our ancestors, embrace your life and I'm sending so much love to each and every single one of you from Minnesota. 

Until next time.

Happiness is a Choice

Video Transcription

Optimism to me is, once again, that deliberate choice to utilize my greatest commodity, my attention, and my mind, and my perception to choose to notice what is good.

To choose to be angel’s advocate for my life, to choose to envision best case scenario instead of worst case scenario, and to just really focus my attention knowing that what I attend to is going to expand in my experience.

To know that thru free will I have the opportunity to decide, to notice what’s working and to notice what feels good.

And that power of optimism has an incredible aura ****for me; incredible. It’s been amazing, it’s the key to why my dreams are my reality right now; absolutely.

You will never “find” happiness! Here is why…

Laura explains how happiness and fulfillment can actually be experienced

Video Transcription

Hey Everyone, it’s Laura Fredrickson in the Institute of True Wealth.

I’m here in Tulum, Mexico, having an absolutely amazing magical experience, and I wanted to remind each of you that it is impossible to find happiness. 

For any of you if you that may be seeking or finding happiness this year perhaps in accomplishments, or in money, or in you relationships, I just want to forewarnyou that that’s energetically impossible.

Just know that happiness is something that is realized and it’s not something that gets assigned from the outside in, but rather from the inside out. 

Soone of the most efficient and quickest ways to realize happiness is to devote your attention more often than not to what is working in your life and what you’re grateful for. Appreciation is the highest vibration you can offer, so when you decide to go on a deliberate plan to notice what is working, but you appreciate ***in your life exactly how it is, you’ll actually start to realize greater, and greater happiness and fulfillment. In terms of energetic return on that choice, you will start to actually manifest your heart’s desires although I want to remind you it’s not about the manifestation of the thing, it’s about the creative journey.

So just a loving reminder to focus on what is working and you will start to realize happiness and from that place everything else will unfold.

Much love each and every single one of you.

Until next time.

This Practice Changed My Life Forever

​Video Transcription

Hey everybody,

it's Laura Fredrickson. I’m here in Ibiza, Spain and as you can see I am in the most majestic, amazing locations. I took myself on a walk about, a lot of people are in the closing parties today in Ibiza, and I decided to come and pay my tributes to my church which is the Church of Planet Earth, and to just do a beautiful meditation intention setting for a new moon. 

And just find that the most beautiful meditations that I can ever do are those that are based in two very simple words which is thank you. And when I say thank you, I truly am grateful for my life exactly how it is. So it's not about altering, it's not about wishing things were different, it truly is about being grateful for everything that's unfolded and I know you may say “well yeah, look where you are; you have so much to be grateful for”, but know that my journey and my path has not always looked like this and it certainly has not felt like this. I've had many years of depression, many years of despair, all fundamentally of course due to basing my life, my insecurity, my happiness, well being, on the illusory and fleeting value of money or something outside of myself.

So have embarked on a journey of self discovery which initiated about 20 years ago, I've been on it every since. And I just want you to know that if I can do it you can do it. And one of the most incredible catalysts for me to realize the life that I'm living now was a gratitude appreciation practice. So if you find that you're in a dark place or even if you find that you're in an amazing place, you can always elevate your experience, believe me.

And I would just want to just remind everybody that one of the most powerful things that you can do to shift your current experiences is to do your mental fitness gym. And so a lot of people are focused on yoga and eating right and all that is amazing, but we're not creating from our actions, were creating from our thoughts. Our thoughts are giving rise to our feelings which are informing our actions which are creating our results. So in order to fundamentally shift our results we have to shift our beliefs and the way that we're thinking for the most part. We don't have to do that to the point of perfection, we don't have to micromanage 60,000 thoughts, but we do need to shift the inner ratio of our attention from focusing on lack, scarcity and what isn't working, to possibility what is working and appreciation.

So, powerful practice that supported me is an appreciation practice of gratitude journal, so I would invite you. Four days aweek is all that's required. For the first part of the day it’s ideal because it will set the energetic tone for your day. We’re going to acknowledge three things that you’re grateful for; it can be absolutely anything. And you know that you're doing the exercise right because it will feel good to do so. 

So threethings you’re grateful for, no repeats. No repeats is important because it’s going to deepen and expand what you’re noticing, which will deepen and expand what you're inviting in. So remember what you focus on expands so what you appreciate appreciates.

Sending so much love to each and every single one of you from Ibiza.
