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 morning!! A new week begins, another chance at empowerment! Remember, all that we uncover is our karmatic experience of getting us closer to unconditional love.
As I stated yesterday I was going to plan out my dinner celebration for my 100th day. Plans: Instead of dinner I’m taking myself to a crepe lunch and a massage after. 🙂 This is a special treat for me! I’m excited. I will also buy myself some balloons cuz they’re my favorite! ❤
Todays Reflections: I’ve been so enjoying the process of things lately, finding myself more able to let go and also deeply reflecting on this word I keep getting about not building from brokenness, but from wholeness. Its so important that every project, friendship, relationship, and aspect in our lives is crafted from strength and wholeness instead of protection, compensation and so on, from brokenness. “Wholeness will never respect anything brokenness built.” — Pastor Toure
Where have you been building from fixing, making better, compensation? Where are you being BUSY instead of EMPOWERED? Being busy often gives us a false and temporary source of empowerment, it finds us distracted from whatever is really in our hearts that we’re not ready to face. And, while I don’t encourage sitting around for all too long analyzing past or future, we must be aware and conscious that busy-ness
is not the same as working from the heart, and we want to deeply reflect *where* we’re moving from.
If you are trying to be successful, that is a wobbly road indeed.
Most people won’t offer that opinion right there, ^^ will they?
But, to me, life is not about being successful, rich or famous. Its about knowing your purpose and passionately pursuing it, letting it fill up your heart and have that overflow into your life decisions.
As I tell my students “Moving quickly will bring you greatness, moving slowly will bring you magic.”
Are you focused on success or purpose?
Today, I’m honoring the passions I have, I’m working my best to acknowledge my ‘shadows’ and I’m moving forward, with Self-Love, bc no matter where I’m at, I love myself first, and I don’t need success to have me love that Self. Today to honor my Self-love, I am going to look for my wholeness in each action, acknowledge it and develop it as much as I can in each moment. ❤
Thanks for being on the other side!
Love is the reward for love.
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.
