Week 15–Nature’s Greatest Miracle

This week we started reading Scroll IV, and I am digging it. I love the reminder that I get when reading this scroll.

I am a miracle!
I am unique!
I have unlimited potential!
There is NO other like me, and that makes me rare–valuable!

Valuable

You don’t know my story, but I literally shouldn’t be breathing. I shouldn’t have been born. When I was young, my mother tried to tell me that God had a plan for my life & that I was a miracle. I didn’t hear that in her words. I heard that I wasn’t supposed to be here–that I shouldn’t be alive–that I didn’t belong here. It took me decades to work through my story…decades to begin to believe that I had value, that I was worthy of each breath I took.

Last week I mentioned that I have gone through a lot of emotional healing recently, and learning my own value and to love myself. Because of that, Scroll II was very dear to me–I will greet this day with love in my heart. Now I have started with Scroll IV and I have a feeling that this will also be dear to me. This scroll that reminds me and reinforces the belief that I am a miracle! That I am valuable! There is no one else who thinks like I do (just ask my family or friends…they will vouch for this! HA!), there is no one else with my voice, there is no one else with my exact makeup. I am a truly one of a kind.

How incredible is that?

YOU are one of a kind! There is no one else like you! WE are one of a kind!

I am the amazing handiwork of the Almighty Creator. I am truly a miracle!

Week 14–Reflections & Connections

I’m behind. It’s Sunday, the last day of 2017 and I am just getting to my blog for last week. It’s also a time for reflection. I’ve been thinking about my hopes from the beginning of this year…the dreams I had that I didn’t always believe would come to fruition…the word I chose for 2017 and how well (or not) I lived out that word…the items on my vision board that have manifest in my life, and changes I want to make to that board.

Week 13–Miracles and Reminders

It’s almost Christmas and I might be feeling a little overwhelmed. It seems there is so much to be done, and not enough hours of the day. I’ve been saying “Do it now” so often that I’ve got other people saying it as well. And that’s a very good thing…it seems that when I most need the “Do it now” thought & attitude, that’s when I have left it behind. And in those moments when it seems I need a prompt, my boyfriend will say, “Do it now,” and that mental reset is quick to happen.

Miracle-on-34th

To me, these reminders from him are a miracle. The first reason is just because he’s here…I’ve been waiting a very long time for someone, and I’ve done a lot of work on myself so that I’d be ready when that someone came along. The second is that he’s not a part of the MKE, but he’s heard me repeating phrases and thoughts and he’s picked up on them. And he gives them back to me when I least expect it and when I need them. Miracles.

Last night we went to see Miracle on 34th Street–my favorite Christmas movie. It was the first time either of us had seen it on a big screen, but I couldn’t even attempt to guess how many times I’ve seen the movie. I don’t think I’d be out of the ballpark if I said 50 or more. But last night, I caught something I had never really paid attention to before. I’ve always liked the scene, but last night, it had more meaning for me.

Susan didn’t play with the other children in the apartment building because they were being “silly” imagining themselves as animals in a zoo. And she was just too practical for that, after all, she was a girl, not an animal. And Kris Kringle goes on to explain about the imagination…she’d heard of other nations, but not the “Imagine Nation.” It takes practice, he told her. And proceeds to teach her how to pretend to be a monkey.

This simple scene carries new weight–I am practicing with my imagination. I am now a citizen of the Imagine Nation. I am constantly creating with my thoughts, but I understand that my thoughts create my reality.¬†Once again, reminders from an unexpected source.

I watched the movie through a new lens last night–a clearer lens. I notice how Doris (Susan’s mother) calls herself realistic, which is a nice way of saying negative for most people. But even Doris couldn’t completely close off her heart…even that very practical, realistic Doris changed some thoughts and believed. And again, reminders from an unexpected source.

Miracles and reminders are all around us…if we take the time to notice. I will be open to the universe reaffirming what I am practicing. I will be open to the miracles around me. I will be open to the reminders offered to me. I will appreciate them all. I will accept them in love.

In this season of miracles, magic, and believing, I wish you and yours an abundance of love, peace, and joy.

Merry Christmas!

Week 11–Governed by Law

“Your life is governed by law–by actual, immutable principles hat never vary. Law is in operation at all times; in all places.”

Newton-Gravity
So our lives are governed by law…yep, we are. Like it or not, there will always be laws in play with our lives. The real question is if we fight against those laws or learn how to work the laws in our favor.

For me, MKMMA has been hugely helpful in learning more about these laws and how to use them to propel myself forward into the life I am wanting. It’s not a completely natural process yet–not like the Law of Gravity, present in my life and working in my favor without me even thinking about it–but it’s getting more and more natural, more and more “automatic,” more of a habit.

“It is well, however, to remember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a cause, which created other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.” (Master Key, Part Eleven)

One of the things that I am becoming more and more aware of is my desire for others to “get it” when it comes to intentional thinking, the Law of Attraction, the Law of Creation, etc. I find myself encouraging my friends and loved ones to start voicing what they want when they are busy talking about what they are lacking. I can’t even guess how many times I have been told things like, “I’m just being realistic,” or “I’m just telling it like it is.” But I no longer want to tell things “like it is.” My focus is on what will be…what is in the works right now…my future self and my future life.

“The fruit of this thought is, as it were, a gift of the gods, but a gift which few as yet realize, appreciate, or understand. The recognition of he marvelous power which is possessed by the mind under proper conditions and he fact that this power can be utilized, directed, and made available for the solution of every human problem is of transcendental importance.” MK11-22

What an amazing gift we have…no less amazing than the gift of gravity that keeps us from flying off this spinning ball of water and dirt. And yet, so many do not even want to consider the possibility of these laws…even while the laws are at action in their lives!

I am grateful for MKMMA, for the exercises to practice these Laws, for the evidence I see in my life of these Laws at work, and for the opportunity to share about these Laws by example as well as by positive words & encouragement.

I am beyond excited about my steady rank achievement in my Young Living business, for the transformation my body has made to true health and fitness, and for love in my life.

I promise to create the life of my dreams, and I ALWAYS keep my promises!

Week 10-Reflection

Reflection-future

This week “off” has been one of some reflection…I feel like I have allowed the busyness of a holiday and life… I let these things start dictating my time and thoughts instead of keeping control over everything. That 7 Day Diet? Yeah, I’m starting that again.

Do you remember Mark talking about triggers in the Week 9 webinar? How we may end up with some triggers over the holiday? Mine was after the holiday. I had my guard up pretty well during the holiday weekend, but a few days later, I let my guard down a little. BAM! That trigger came out of nowhere and threw me. It made for an emotionally exhausting day, and while I wasn’t very thankful for that trigger when it happened, I found good in the experience. That trigger forced me to be more deliberate and intentional in my communication. It forced a choice of forgiveness or resentment. It offered me an option of hanging on to the negative or letting it go. I chose to let it go…it may have been a finger by finger release, but I let it go. I chose forgiveness. I chose to be vulnerable in my communication and to share my feelings. I learned that when it comes to our thought life–there is NO changing of the guards…no letting down my guard.

More reflection–let’s talk about responsibility. Mark touched on this (also week 9), but it was this week that it hit me in the face. A little over a year and a half ago I was at a training on emotional release and that was the first time I had been presented with the idea that responsibility is nothing more than our ability to respond. My trigger experience got me thinking about this again, and thinking about how we choose to respond. In the moment of my trigger I let the blueprint run…I didn’t choose how I would respond…it was later that day that I realized the old blueprint jumped right in when my guard was down, when I didn’t intentionally decide how I wanted to respond.

More reflection–I’m not really ready to let Scroll II go. It seems that every time I read it there’s something that jumps out, or triggers some new connection or thought…some idea about the absolute amazing power of love…whether spoken or not, love demands a response. And once again, we have the choice to decide our response. Maybe Scroll III will become my new favorite; maybe Scroll II will always be my favorite, but I am sorry to say goodbye (for now) to my time with what I’ve come to think of as the “Love Scroll.”

So…I will persist until I succeed…one foot in front of the other…one baby step after another…one more time of getting up when I fall (or when I don’t choose my response and let the autopilot run)…I WILL persist until I succeed. And I WILL succeed. Because I can be what I will to be!
