Good morning all!
Hope you are doing well. As I mentioned yesterday, I am 3 weeks into a course on eliminating self-sabotage, and its been very revealing, along with the help of the EFT work I’ve been doing with Dr. Damon Andrew for the past few months.
This week we are approaching the emotions we run from or hide from. I am proud to say I really do feel like I take my emotions on, I’m not afraid of them, and a tremendous amount of that ability has been due to Christ, Landmark, and LAST YEAR! As I’ve mentioned before, last year was TOUGH. I really was in student mode and it taught me a tremendous amount about being uncomfortable, which was excellent and has really transformed my whole life because now, much more often than not, I’m able to ENJOY the CHALLENGES, and when I can’t enjoy them, I’m still able to enjoy myself despite. That is freedom for me!
So, lately, with this feeling of closeness to my own heart and bounds of clarity and self-love, I asked my self what still gets in my way. A lot of it is simply mind-wandering! I have so much on my plate that I try to juggle all these thoughts in my head. I started researching some information on mind-wandering to get a better feel and understanding. It was pretty eye opening. One of the tools I appreciated the most was that scheduling time for us to daydream and mind-wander had our mind stay more focused when it was ‘requested’ to, so to speak. When the Self knows it will come, it will be patient.
And, isn’t that so true? We’re always living into our future. This sentence was one of the biggest clarities provided for me in Landmark. There is a certain us when we’re about to go on vacation vs when that vacation is about to end. We are what we anticipate is coming.
What future does your mind have set for today, tomorrow, this month and this year? What can you create or re-create to live into a more exciting future? And, including the inventory you may or may not have taken, how can you re-write your future instead of continuing to be stuck in your growth?
Thank you for being on the other side 🙂
Good afternoon everyone!
Hope your day is going well so far.
Today I am super excited to share with you all that I’m 2 weeks into taking a course on Self-Sabotage (not how to do it, how not to! haha) and its really interesting! So far there has been reading assignments, meditations, interviews and lists I’ve needed to make. One of the lists I needed to make was “What have lifes biggest lessons been for me?” As I peeked back into my past, I realized that everything challenging I faced only impacted me bc of my lack of self-love and clarity, and so it felt amazing to see that my biggest lessons have always been about loving and knowing Self. There is not going to be someone who saves me or rescues me! And this is great news, because then *that* means no one can take my joy and self-love away.
Another great lesson I see is about expression, whether that is around what my needs and wants are or simply in my art. Feeling expressed is SO important, whether that is through words, painting, calligraphy, dance, or laughter. Its so important to express and to be *fully* expressed.
I hope that all of you have enjoyed this journey of self-exploration for me. It has definitely increased my self-love and awareness and has also triggered my expansion of passion for internal growth, in reflection and prayer.
Just a few more days to go! Can you believe it? Thanks for being on the other side 🙂
Yesterday I re-posted a quote on IG about how there are people who are more successful than you, doing what you want to be doing, simply because they chose to believe in themselves.
The wording on that is impeccable. They “chose” to believe in themselves.
It’s not something we have to wait for, right? It entails my circular thoughts the other day regarding the chicken and egg, or the self-love as an action or feeling. One day, I’ve just gotta CHOSE to love self, and thats the answer. The beginning is simply our choice.
Good morning all my lovers out there!
How are you doing? My morning has been great so far. Simply stretching, listening to beautiful music, and warm water. How do you start your mornings?
I’m grateful for this project bc of what I’ve discovered about my Self and about my relationship to Self with others. I’m grateful that I have accountability on the other side that expects me to check in with myself first thing every morning. I love that I’ve been able to do that 83 days in a row. Most of you have stuck it out, I had 3 un-subscribers for reasons such as the posts being too much about God or not having time to read the length. And of course, thats ok.
Today, lets take some time today to tell THREE people what we appreciate about them. Every once in a while I’ll get a wild hair and just call people for the sake of calling them to appreciate them. Whether you call or do it in person, today just let 3 people know what it is about them that you love and appreciate. ❤
Thanks for being on the other side!
9. PRACTICE. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW
– Looking backward to examine what was, prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW.
– Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dreams…
– Prevent us from having new ones.
