I was at a party in Sudbury, MA. last night.
That’s right, I’m a party animal.

Anyway, I saw a great friend who I haven’t seen since before I left for Thailand. ┬áIt was great to see him.
But even better, he has a new job and a new girlfriend.

I haven’t seen him this happy in a long time.

So this morning, when I woke up, I did my celebration practice and celebrated him.

For one minute I celebrated his joy at having a new job.
And for one minute I celebrated him being in a loving relationship.

Because that’s the vibration I want to be sending out into the universe.

A little history…
My celebration practice began one night a couple years ago as I was driving down the shore with a friend and he told me he had received a check earlier that day for $1,000,000.
Yes, $1,000,000.

As soon as he said it, I remember my first reaction being, “Why not me, I want a million dollars”. I immediately thought of the commandment, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors’ goods”.

There was no question I was covetous, and the energy I was sending out was one of envy.
Which of course means the universe will send me more to be envious about.

I knew I had to change that vibration immediately.
So here’s what I did.

I celebrated.

I celebrated my friend’s joy at receiving the check.
Because when I can feel his joy, I then send out a vibration of pure joy and the universe responds in kind by sending me more to be joyous about.

I also celebrated my being close to him. By definition of the Law of Attraction, my having a close friend who received $1,000,000, and my being with him, meant I must be getting closer to my own million dollar check.

How awesome is that?
That’s the energy I want to be emitting out into the universe.

This isn’t “rocket science”. It’s actually pretty simple.

e720a06a112716b38af1cd6acd972da6Like the quote from Albert Einstein, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

So now, whenever I see someone who is happy, or has something I desire, I celebrate them. It’s made all the difference in my vibration.

Give it a try today. Think of someone who has what you want. It can be a friend or co-worker who has the beautiful family, great health or financial security. Whatever it is that brings up a jealous feeling in you.

And celebrate their joy at having it.
Celebrate the fact that you know people who have what you want.
Focus on the practice of celebrating each person’s joy at having what you want for 1 minute.
Practice sending that joyous energy out into the universe.

Btw… I no longer use the word jealous, it’s a negative word that brings up negative feelings. Instead of saying, even jokingly to a friend, “I’m jealous of you”, I say instead, “I celebrate you”.
And I do.

To sending out that joyous vibration,
Michael
