Overview

In a humorous and somewhat irreverent style, Lynn offers stunning new information that reveals how we get everything in life, from good jobs to empty bank accounts, car accidents to big houses, cancer to perfect health. No positive thinking or get-rich-quick book has ever contained this amazing information, because it has only recently come to light. She shows us how, with no effort other than paying attention to how we're feeling, we can mold our lives exactly as we choose with relative ease and speed.

Lynn introduces us to the amazing Law of Attraction, a new and rapidly unfolding realm of feelings that physicians, scientists, physicists and theologians are coming to believe is very, very real.

Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting clarifies why most of our dreams have never materialized, why the majority of us have lived with all-too-empty bank accounts, tough relationships, failing health and often spiritually unfulfilling lives. Most important, in an easy-to-read style peppered with logical explanations, simple steps and true-life examples, author Lynn Grabhorn shows us how to turn it all around—right now.

First Chapter

chapter one
how we
got in
this mess

How do we get what we get in life? Why do some people seem to have it all while others suffer so? Why did that bozo bump into you on the freeway? Why did that little child have to die so young? How come that guy got promoted, and not you? Why can’t everybody have prosperity, and joy, and security?

In our everlasting search to find more happiness in life, we devour positive-thinking books by the millions. But if those books truly hold the secrets to an abundant and joyful life, why do we keep buying new ones? Oh sure, there are a few that have come close to giving us the keys to that elusive "good life," but no true winners; our lives don’t do a lot of changing. "Maybe it was just the wrong book," we rationalize. "Let’s try another one." Or another religion. Or a different kind of meditation. Or another teacher, or psychic, or doctor, or relationship.

We reach out anywhere and everywhere for relief from the tedium and struggle of daily living, yet the vast majority of us are still looking. How come? How come we’ve never learned the simple secret to living the good life, whatever that may represent to us? How come we continue to whack and scratch like frantic mad dogs to get what we want, when all along the key to obtaining our innermost desires has been as elemental as life itself?

If you really think that things come to you by some stroke of good or bad luck, or by accident, or coincidence, or by knocking your brains out against some very unsympathetic stone walls, then get a grip. This book could be dangerous to your discontent.

Slugger Jessie

Years ago, long before I had ever heard about the Law of Attraction, my friend Mindy insisted I go with her to see a Little League game. Her son played left field, but that’s not why she wanted me to go with her.

The size of the weekend crowd surprised me. You’d have thought Babe Ruth himself was reincarnating for a guest appearance. But question her as I might, no amount of prodding would cut loose Mindy’s little intrigue. So what the heck; I went along with it.

Her son came up to bat and struck out. Our side got two hits but no runs before the side was retired. Then came the other guys; you couldn’t help but feel the crowd’s excitement. A couple of young bulldogs strolled to the plate and promptly struck out, thanks to our team’s terrific pitcher. Now it was Jessie’s turn, and the cheers began. From both sides.

Jessie was small, I mean really small. His bat seemed longer than he was. He stepped up to the plate with unceremonious confidence and proceeded to hit the very first ball so far out over the bushes that they never did find it. I was flabbergasted, the crowd went ballistic, and Mindy looked at me and winked.

This impossible scenario repeated itself four more times. Little Slugger Jessie was a sensation, a phenomenon in the flesh. And with the research I was doing on the physics of manifesting, I damn sure wanted to find out what made this little half-pint tick, just as Mindy knew I would.

When most of the back-slapping was over, I wedged my way up to him through the crowd and asked if we could sit down and talk for a minute. When we reached the top of the bleachers I said, "Jessie, how do you do that? How do you hit so many home runs?"

"I dunno," he offered innocently, waving a casual goodbye to some of his teammates. "Each time I get up to bat I just feel what it’s gonna be like to connect, and I do."

Although I didn’t know it at the time, Jessie had just described the fundamental principle of manifestation known as the Law of Attraction, the physics that creates every moment of our day.

Today Jess lives in style with a lovely wife, two great kids, a house of collectibles from their worldly travels, and a computer from which he makes copious amounts of dollars managing his investments. He passed over baseball as a career because he wanted to be his own boss on his own time. How has he become so successful? Same way he hit the ball: by feeling. Not by thought alone, by feeeeeling!

"Human Condition," My Foot

Didn’t it ever strike you as bizarre that our lives should be so tough when we’re all so brilliant? Here we are, this hugely intelligent species that can split atoms, fly to the moon and create the Flintstones, yet we’re all running around blowing each other up, having heart attacks or starving to death. It makes no sense. How did we get into this mess? Or is it just the so-called human condition?

It all began uncountable eons ago with the first untrue declarations from those who desired power, who proclaimed that our lives revolved around, and were the result of, circumstances over which we had no control, including being dominated by others. Since that’s what everybody has believed for untold eons, that’s what we still believe to this day.

And so, like our parents before us and theirs before them, all the way back for God knows how many thousands of years, we have struggled, whacked, strained, worried, and died long before our time from the all too unnecessary demands of living. We believed it to be the human condition, part of the unfortunate affliction we have come to call reality.

    THE MISSING LINK !!!

    I have been on a roller coaster ride mission to manifesting my desires with self help books for over 25 years, resulting in silly giddy successes and disasterous failures. Hard as I attempted to follow the instruction manuals of the many Sages, I ultimately ended back to square one when the dust finally settled. I have voraciously read and embraced all the Masters works over that time; Napolean Hill, Catherine Ponder, Joseph Murphy, Abraham Maslow, Wayne Dyer, Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins and many, many more. They all had me on the right track but seemed to be missing the piece that would keep me from getting thrown off the train (again!). Lynn Grabhorn has that missing piece in her wonderful book - 'Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting'. Tony Robbins gave you a hint of the secret with his 'passion' speeches but Lynn gives you the Holy Grail with her 4 Step Formula for summoning your Magic Genie. After spending decades developing carpal tunnel syndrome writing endless affirmations, getting cauliflower ear listening to subliminal tapes, wall papering ever mirror I owned with reams of 3X5 cards, creating mastermind groups, and spending a small fortune on self help books, tapes and seminars, I finally found out where the buck stops - right in the old GUT! You have to FEEL your way to your desires. It's the ONLY way. And since the Law of Attraction has been proven by the scientific community to include 'thoughts & feelings' on an atomic level (The Holographic Brain Therory by Karl Pribiam) FEELING it into your life is the fastest way to getting it there. Kudos to Lynn Grabhorn, and many thanks for the MAP to my hidden treasure(FINALLY!)

    What a book!

    I heard about that book from another spiritual one I was reading. Months later, I finally got it and it was a true eye opener. I've spend the last 2 years reading spiritual book after spiritual book discussing the law of attraction and the power within. This one might not be the most literary one but it is definitely the clearest one to follow. Everything is straight to the point and gives you easy steps to follow to change you life. I myself did do the 30 day program she advised for all to try and I can say that it did bring changes in my life and it made me a happier person. I try to do an exercises whenever I can and it is as practical as doing yoga for your body. Overall, an easy book that kids could also read and understand.

    inspirational and refreshing

    I have been searching for answers and peace to my inner wrestling with many issues of life. I don¿t know what I want, but I could use some kind of inspiration or teacher to nudge me, pull me out or whack my head when the inside chaos get the best of me. Then I saw ¿Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting¿ at my local Barnes&Noble. Lynn Grabhorn, in her unique way, shows the readers the missing link on manifesting our wants and living lives purposefully. She points out the good feeling or high frequency vibration is the key to achieve one¿s personal or professional aspirations. After reading the book, I am more aware of what I feel inside, what feelings accompanying what thoughts, and I begin to constantly check my feelings throughout the day. The awareness itself is liberating and scaring at the same time. Using the techniques in ¿Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting,¿ I begin to see why inner peace and success are yo-yoing in and out of my life. Lynn Grabhorn in her no-nonsense style points out though we focus on our wants, our feelings are somewhat screaming out totally different signals. Unaware, I am zooming in on the lack of what I want. Here I am, affirming good things in life while my feelings is far from ¿Feel Good¿ zone. The place where, as Lynn Grabhorn points out, dreams and creations are possible. Lynn Grabhorn suggests many ways on how to get to that ¿feeling place¿ or ¿turn-on feeling¿, as she called it. The peaceful inner place where we can access the life-giving flow and manifest our heart desires and live lives on our own terms, not by default. I still have feelings or thoughts I don¿t want to experience, and concerns or questions that makes me crabby. Using the techniques in ¿Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting¿ I find my way back ¿home¿, to the nature of my authenticity, vibrating in harmony with my Higher Self, Expanded Self, Spiritual Self, or ... you get the idea. Instead of dwelling on and struggling to fix whatever it is bothering me, I acknowledge and observe it while monitoring my feelings. The book is inspirational and thought provoking. ¿Excuse me, Your Life Is Waiting¿ will shows you how to get it, whatever it is to you. Read, experiment and verify it with your own senses and innate intelligent. To my fellow humankind I wish you success, love and peace

    This book has changed my life. I have read a lot of books on the Law of Attraction and this really helps to pull all that knowledge together in a useful way. I feel more empowered, happy, and just plain joyful....it's all my choice.

    AMAZING!

    My life has changed and I can't get over it! I have been a 'student' of New Age philosophies and holisitc healing for at least a decade. This book, written in simple language, pulled it all together and then took it to (literally) a whole new level. As soon as I began moving into my 'wants' and truly visualizing and feeling what I desire in my life, synchronatic events began to transpire. This is a must read for everyone! You certainly do not have to be into New Age 'stuff' or holisitic healing to enjoy and/or benefit from this book.

    Entry # 13

    13 is unlucky, right? Perhaps. After all, there ARE all those scary movies.. But this 12 year old girl has seen everything there is to see on TV...including the...uh..erm...se<_>x stuff. But do not judge me. My mom forces me to watch movies with her, but half of the whole da<_>mn movie I have to look away. I like scary movies, but they are always filled with se<_>x and general nakedness. It's awful. Have you ever questioned your sanity? Wondering if you might be a little crazy? I think everyone has at some point in their lives. Ever opened up to someone you thought you could trust? Before they freaking broke your heart? Yeah.. we have a lot more in common then you might think. (I think perhaps I will write a story like this) But this world is just so fu<_>cked up, you know? My mom cusses and delivers the F-bomb daily. Fun stuff. Now her 12 year old daughter knows a handy bit of colorful cussing. My dad yells at me a lot. We rarely get by a single day without a screaming match. My mom says we're like oil and water. I say it's because he is my stepdad and my biological dad wanted my mom to get an abortion. Basically, he wanted to kill me before I was born. Then came my stepdad, who has a fiery temper exactly like mine. And mine can get scary. Sometimes I scare myself. But once we start yelling, I refuse to back down. Mostly it's because a part of me sees this as a weakness, and I hate weaknesses. It's just a thing. I want to be stronger and all...but it's kind of stupid of me. My stepdad is just....difficult. One time, he hit me. Notice I say one time. That is because I screamed and hit him back. My mom? She was worried the neighbors would hear. Suffice to say, my household isn't exactly a dream come true. Home. What a laugh. Plus, I'm homeschooled, so I get to fight with my parents a lot. Mostly because I try to tell them the truth, and they think I am lying. Then comes the surge of hatred. Is your family like this? Or worse? I just want to know if I am the only one out here. I know, I'm writing about gloomy stuff. But better out then bottle it all up. Because once it's bottled, it freaking explodes, hurting anyone who is near me. I hate that. That is how I lose people. People I was friends with. But I still have some. Friends. Although I do admit I have more enemies than friends. And da<_>mn it, I really hate winter. So this entry will be a little shorter as I go and drop the F-bomb on Mother Nature. Bai. ~ Lark

    I thought Lynn Grabhorn had some great ideas in her book.....if only we can do it..... I was very sorry to hear about her death and the possiblity that she may have committed suicide. Kind of didn't go with what she pushed in her book. Caused some mixed emootion there.

    Great!

    Very well written, clear and with common languaage everyone understands. It is very good if you set your mind to follow it, if not it may sound like a personal story. On this subject, the author tends to wonder around personal subjects toward the end of the book but skipping ahead does not lose the reader's perpective of the subject of the book. The title of the book is very appropriate, particularly for those like me that have been searching for reassurance and purpose of their lives.

    Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting is the next step up from The Secret and a more down to earth read in comparison to the works of Jerry and Ester Hicks. Lynn Grabhorn explains the law of attraction in lay-man terms with a bit of humor thrown in to boot. This book is easy to follow and relate to. I find myself reading it again and again. This is a must have if you are wanting to go beyond The Secret and are looking to get more insight on the law of attraction.

    I was disappointed with this CD series. I personally received the material as unprofessional and unorganized, not to mention the author's voice was annoying. I prefer the professionalism of Esther & Jerry Hicks in the Teachings of Abraham!

    excuse me, my life is now!

    Before reading this book, I read a few other self help books dealing in truth and the laws of the universe. I felt that I knew everything and was satisfied until the things that I thought I knew turned out to be not all I knew. After reading Lynn's book I have been able to not only change my life but to also maintain the changes that I have made. I don't think I have ever been happier in my life. I am a deliberate creator and I am loving every second of it! Even in my dreams, I can hear her words reminding me of who I am and what I am doing in every moment that I am breathing.

    The missing link

    What is great about this book is that is the keystone to any other self help book... in easy to comprehend language, it explains whats missing from your life in just a few words. RECOMMEND for any self improver (and everyone else for that matter) who 'knows it all' but still cant feel the improvement.

    It changed my life

    Lynn's book change my life from one day to another. I remember when I first came accross this book I was going through a very difficult time in my life and when I opened it and started learning and practicing what I was learning my life changed 100%. Although my life changed sometimes we have to be reminded of these teachings because it is way to easy to fall into very negative feelings. to be honest I have read this book twice and I just started reading in a third time. I highly recommended it and guarantee that anyone who reads it and practices her teachings will see the difference it will make in their lives.
