GROUNDING THE SPIRITUAL INTO THE MATERIAL

The Way of Jacquie Jordan

Jacquie Jordan, CEO of TV Guestpert

Ms. Jordan, this event was very successful and people was so excited that they did not wanted to leave the room. During this Open-Forum, you mentioned that The Law of Attraction is like kindergarten to you. Would you share more about that in details? Would take a moment to expand on your own personal experience with The Law Of Attraction which is a spiritual law?

I’m not a big fan of locking and loading the Laws of Attraction as a primary and singular belief system. For one, as far as laws go, it is one of many — Laws of Contrast; Laws of Consequence; Law of Divine Order; Law of Conscious Detachment….

I think understanding the Law of Attraction is important in terms of understanding a tool or a stepping stone; it allows us all to take full responsibility for what we are participating in creating; however, as a collective we have become drunk off of “wishful thinking.” Without understanding this Universal Law in full context, we spend our time in wishful thinking and desire. And honestly, desire, for me, is the reinforcement of a lack feeling. It’s “I don’t have something I want.” I think Gratitude is way more powerful, because I am acknowledging the full of abundance of all that I AM and all that reflects around me.

So it is a spiritual kindergarten tool. It’s a concept that requires integrating, understanding, and practice, but to stay in and only with the Law of Attraction becomes Spiritual Grandiosity.

Do you think the folks who went into the 9–11 towers that morning were “Attracting it?” or the children of Darfur — are “attracting it?” What about the abuse and neglect of our animals — “did they attract it too?” A spiritual judgement quickly comes in when we filter everything through the lense of the Laws of Attraction. We are also powerless over a lot. Surrender is an important part of any Spiritual process, in my own experience, as is humility. Laws of Attraction is only part of the Universal Principles that rule this time space dimension. All of this naturally, is my own opinion. If it works for you, don’t let me put self doubt in your cup of tea. But if I did, “Did you just attract that?”

2. Ms. Jordan, you started your career by turning ideas into big projects. You shared your very first projects with few thousands dollars, made them big, and eventually let you to produce one of the most watched TV Shows including Maury Show. Maury Povich once said: “Jacquie ought to know how to get you on TV…She’s put half the country on TV, including me?”

Would you say that your gifts and talents in putting people on TV and media came to you naturally or by training?

You are a great listener, Jose. Speaking of Laws of Attraction….one of my masteries in this lifetime has been to manifest. Nothing will make you master manifesting quicker than being a television producer. It’s materializing into reality for reflection and review by others concepts, stories, and ideas, that were just ideas. Then you have to do that work in very limited time constraints under, often, tight budgets. It was when I got that I was producing “reality television” in an “artificial reality” — my career path shifted. Quite ironic. In my own spiritual practice, I consider this “Grounding the Spiritual into the Material.”

3. Ms. Jordan towards the second part of Open Forum, you mentioned about Sleep Revolution and the importance of sleeping 8 hours a night by referring to your client TV Guestpert Lou Dennig who was previously interviewed in Thrive Global. Would you say that good night sleep fosters your own success in grounding the spiritual into material? How important is sleeping 8 hours a day for your spiritual and material success?

I am and always required a lot of sleep. I process emotions and energies while I sleep. I don’t function without sleep. I don’t even feel like most other people when it comes to sleep, as I require 8 healthy hours of a good sleep a night. I also, have no problem, shame, or guilt, if I require taking a nap. I call it going offline. I get my best ideas coming in and out of sleep states. I don’t take red eye flights. I give myself a few extra days to allow my circadian rhythm to reset on international flights. I don’t sleep with electronics in my bedroom. I use yellow glasses or yellow light with electronics after the sun goes down… I could go on and on, but don’t want to sound to weird. (wink, wink!)
