I didn’t have to go far to find this week’s New Blog Of The Week (NBOTW). I found her in my comment section.

Want to guess who she is?

You may have already visited her blog.

Here are a few hints.

In one post she says, “Don’t give away your power”.

You give away your power when you allow others to make you feel inferior, when you blame outside circumstances, and when you let other people make decisions for you.

To teach writers more about awakening their creativity, she shares two methods of writing.

1) Proprioceptive Writing

2) Morning Pages

For another clue, she wrote about the power of the magician, and how by using the same techniques as a magician does, you can….

learn to control your thoughts and emotions so that they become aligned with the things and circumstances that you want to create. Remember to devote yourself to perfecting your craft to the point where it appears to others that you can pull solutions to problems and ideas out of a hat.

And that million dollars? It’s one of her dreams.

Have you figured out who she is?

It’s Marelisa. Her blog is “Abundance Blog”.

Please join me in welcoming Marelisa as the NBOTW.

Pay her a visit, leave her a comment, and don’t forget to subscribe to her blog for more of her great writings.

Hello again, Marelisa!

    Yay! I love Marelisa! I like to save her posts for last in my reader so that I always end with something great. I love how she takes pie in the sky ideals and breaks them into concrete approaches for action. Excellent choice.

  11. Barbara,
    We are on the theme of Law of Attraction, right?

    I checked that magician post and found it very interesting. In addition to my life coaching, I also read people’s soul records, so I know what she is talking about. We can all do this, provided we are free from various energetic blocks.

    Great choice! Thank you for being such a good source of information.

    Hi AxeCity,

    Thank you! Like you, I like the way Marelisa “rolled out the red carpet” to the readers of BWAB who are going over to say “Hi”.

    Hi Natural,

    She’s good, hey? I saw you were commenting over there already too.

    Hi Chris,

    Isn’t her link love idea great?

    The NBOTW series are new blogs that either I find, or are nominated. I try to showcase blogs that are four months old or younger. It’s my way of “paying it forward” and helping new bloggers get found, stay motivated, and/or find their place in blogosphere.

    Hi Wendi,

    Ah, another Marelisa fan. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Lance,

    Glad to hear you like her blog too.

    Hi Sara,

    I’ve seen you over at Marelisa’s blog. She is great about motivating her readers to take action, isn’t she?

    Hi Akemi,

    You’re welcome.

    The Law of Attraction seems to be woven through Marelisa’s blog too.

    The magician post is a good one, isn’t it?

    Thanks for dropping in.

    I’m hoping you’ll enjoy your reign as NBOTW. I love your welcome post (for the BWAB readers). That was very thoughtful of you.

  15. Barbara –

    That smile Mare has is worth the check you’ve at the top. A great choice indeed. Mare is inspiration to all of us. She shows her grace in her writings and in her compassion for others.
