Using the Law of Attraction as my guide, I had to ask myself the question, “What would my life be if.” Now the ifs are different for everyone. Your if may be ‘what would my life be like if’ I had a career I loved, a person whom I adore and adores me, or my body is at its healthiest. It doesn’t matter what it is, because using the Law of Attraction you will get exactly what you want. As I said in the previous post, the Universe is neutral, so if you are thinking and focusing on your desires, that is what you will get. But if you are like I was and most people, your focus is on lack and what you don’t have. So as a neutral Universe, that is exactly what you get. The more you focus on (not enough) the more of that comes to you. So the question is, how do I change that? And the answer is by changing how I feel about myself. What are the inner blocks that are stopping me from receiving all that I desire?

This is where the work gets challenging. How do we change beliefs that are imprinted on us? These unconscious beliefs are what’s running the show of our lives. This is where we must go within. I truly believe most of us on this planet have an unconscious belief that we are not enough. Not good enough, rich enough, attractive enough, thin enough…. etc… etc… The list can go on forever. Why is it that we feel we are not worthy to receive everything we desire? I believe it starts somewhere in childhood. Somewhere in your life you felt as I did; that feeling of unworthiness. It doesn’t matter how it happened, or where that message came from or who told you that. It doesn’t matter if you had the most beautiful childhood or the most horrendous. Somewhere along the way, you received that message and you agreed with it. YOU and I said, not on a conscious level but on an unconscious level, “yes you are right, I am not good enough” or “I don’t deserve this or that.”

So it’s time to change that. What do you do now? You go deep inside and ask yourself the question, ‘Where along in my life, did I allow that belief to enter me?’I have discovered from doing that, where my belief came from. It was very interesting to discover when I thought of myself as not enough. In the next blog under Going Within, I will describe some things from my childhood that created that unconscious belief. It’s very eye opening and hopefully it will inspire you to do the same for yourself.

Believe me when I say, positive affirmations work, using the Law of Attraction. But first we must remove the unconscious beliefs that are blocking us. And I will be describing my process to prove it to you.

Author's Bio: 

Melisa Caprio

Photographer and Artist

Creator, Postcards to the Universe™

Melisa Caprio, the eldest of three young women, was born in New Jersey. When Melisa turned eleven, she moved with her family to South Florida. Melisa graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. Originally majoring in Journalism, she took a photography class and discovered her true passion.

After graduation, Melisa traveled and photographed in Europe for a few months. On returning to South Florida, she and a fellow photographer collaborated, opening a photography gallery in Hollywood, Florida, showing her European travel photography. They specialized in exhibiting their own and others’ photography; having juried exhibitions featuring local artist for openings to market their work. Melisa and her partner owned and managed the gallery for two years, closing it to concentrate on developing their individual photography expertise.

While focusing her photography on documenting one of her younger sisters with special needs, she was asked to become the staff photographer of Dolphin Human Therapy in Key Largo, Florida. At Dolphin Human Therapy, the focus of the program was to use dolphins as a motivator to help children with developmental challenges. The program was a huge success, and Melisa stayed with the company for seven years photographing the children’s interactions with the dolphins five days a week. She amassed thousands of images during that time. That work has been widely published portraying that population.

In her last year there, many things conspired in Melisa’s life to change her course. Dolphin Human Therapy closed its doors and moved out of the country. She and her husband divorced, and Melisa lost her home. After going through a difficult period of grieving and loss, Melisa started taking courses in life-coaching, spirituality and healing. During that time, she discovered the Law of Attraction, and realized how she attracted everything that came into her life, both the good and bad.

Inspired by her new awareness, her website, blog, and book, Postcards to the Universe™, was born. Postcards to the Universe is an artistic creation–using photography, affirmations, Law of Attraction, and finally, the power of manifestation. Melisa is using her photography images to create postcards; those postcards will be used for anyone who wants to create and manifest their affirmations by writing their affirmation on the back of the postcard. Melisa will take the affirmation the person writes on the postcard and ask them to send it to her. By sending the postcard, the sender is declaring and requesting the manifestation of their affirmation from the universe. Then, in return, the universe will respond in kind— this is how the Law of Attraction works. Melisa will photograph that postcard and affirmation in the person’s own words. If the postcard is chosen, it will be featured on her blog and in her book, Postcards to the Universe™. She will then follow-up and feature how they manifested their desires using Law of Attraction.

This is book one in a series that will continue to grow as an artistic venture using photography, art and the Law of Attraction—connecting all people as they see how dreams and desires are possible for everyone.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Rainbow Guardian, Inc., a non-profit organization, which serves the intellectually challenged and developmentally disabled population, including autism. This is a family operated foundation, which Melisa has been involved with its development, since it began in 1995.

Melisa lives in Davie, Florida. She enjoys traveling part of the year, pursuing her passion with photography. She spends much of her quality time with her family, or kicking back with a good book.
