Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 5 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Mal Duane whose book Alpha Chick: Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power launches on Amazon on Tuesday February 14, 2012.
Mal Duane has triumphed over devastating life challenges to become an Alpha Chick extraordinaire. After having struggled with alcoholism as a young woman, Mal now has a dream marriage, a highly-successful business, and as a certified Professional Recovery Coach, is deeply involved with helping women discover and use their connection with the divine power to redefine their lives and step away from their pain. She also serves clients through the multi-million dollar real estate company that she built from scratch. As she strongly believes in educating women, she built a school in Konjila, West Africa that educates a hundred students annually, and created Holly’s Gift, an educational assistance fund, which will receive proceeds from the sale of each copy of Alpha Chick.
Alpha Chick, Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power is a model for any woman who dreams of having happiness, success, and fulfillment. It clearly guides the reader step-by-step in the process of becoming her own unique brand of Alpha Chick, using Mal’s simple 5-step formula for self-worth, freedom and transformation. The book is coming to Amazon on Tuesday February 14th, 2012 – Valentine’s Day. Mal says, “I chose Valentine’s Day because I wanted women to give themselves the gift of self-love on that day.”
Yesterday, Mal visited Stephanie Rainbow Bell, where she shared her recent interview with Mal on the subject of a couple of power questions and spiritual practices.
Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Mal when I got to ask her some questions on the subject of law of attraction, personal power and gratitude. I hope you enjoy it.
Debra Simpson: What are the basics of the law of attraction and how does one begin to incorporate it into their daily lives?
Mal Duane: The basic principle behind the law of attraction is that like attracts like. Negative thoughts will bring negative results and positive thoughts will bring positive results. Essentially, what we focus on in life, we create.
In Step 3 of the Alpha Chick Process, Identification & Intention I encourage women to identify 3 negative behaviors that block their potential, then set intentions for positive actions so they can change them. The intention attracts the manifestation of the request.
The main idea behind the Identification & Intention step is to map out ways to actively change your life within the Mental/Emotional, Spiritual, Financial/Career and Physical realms. By setting intentions and actively seeking to change her life, a woman will learn to work positively and consistently to get the things she wants out of life, whether it is a new love, a bigger house, a better relationship with her boss, or a closer bond with her family.
Debra Simpson: How does one discover their personal power and how do they use it once discovered?
Mal Duane: Personal power is that authentic voice, higher consciousness that we are all born with. The best way to access that power is through meditation, prayer or journaling. You quiet the ego voice which is always telling you that you can’t do something and the real voice will emerge.
In Step 1 of the Alpha Chick Process, Focus, I ask women to find their authentic voice through prayer, writing or meditation. Your higher voice is inside of you, and you’ll know it when you find it, because it’ll just “feel right.” If you take the time to ask yourself poignant and revealing questions, your subconscious will make room for the answers. Your transformation begins when you have the courage to honestly examine your beliefs and addictive behaviors – and this is what Focus is all about.
Debra Simpson: How do you incorporate gratitude into your life if you feel things are working against you at the moment?
Mal Duane: People tend to repeat patterns in their lives. One of those patterns is reverting back to past negative feelings when you are in a place of insecurity. I ask people to shift their thoughts to the present when they find themselves reverting to past pessimistic thoughts and damaging feelings.
Everything has a lesson, or a form of learning attached to it. When something goes wrong, we have to remember that it is not that things are working against us but what have we unconsciously attracted to ourselves. We have to use our appreciation and positive attitude to move through challenges. The gratitude comes from knowing that you have the ability to deal with what comes your way.
I hope you enjoyed this interview with Mal Duane and that you’ll check out her book Alpha Chick: Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power.
