What's On My Mind...

Saturday, March 21, 2010
The last few weeks have been intriguing. I've realized, in myself, patterns I thought were long broken. I see things now that have been fear-based that, for a time, I thought were logic grounded... and I'm ready and willing to change. I opened up Marianne Williamson's "Enchanted Love" to a random page and a prayer popped up. I'm going to hold onto this prayer for the next week or so. It fits in perfectly with the next CHOOSE YOU course I'll be teaching:

"Dear God, I don't wish to be a child anymore. I don't wish to be held back anymore. I don't wish to waste my life. Deliver me to new realms, repair me where I am broken, and ready my heart for everything. Thank you, God. Amen."

Testing the Depth of Your Commitment

In "The Power of Intention", Dr. Wayne Dyer says the following:

"View the events you consider obstacles as perfect opportunities to test your resolve and find your purpose; by acting as if you're on purpose and treating the hurdles as friendly reminders to trust in what you feel deeply within you, you'll be fulfilling your own intention to be a purposeful person."

My question to you today is this:
What's deeply within you?

Each of us has, within us, an inner knowing, a wisdom that speaks, even if we choose not to listen to it. For every choice we make or decision we consider making, there is this inner knowing that silently says, "Yes, that's moving you closer to your life's purpose!" or "No, that's not quite it. Be still and know that the right thing's on its way." It is up to us to listen to our inner knowing AND to trust it.

How do you listen to your inner knowing if your life is shattering around you, if your mortgage is 2 months past due and your credit card bills are piling up?

How do you listen to your inner knowing if you're in a marriage you knew you should've never gotten into but it's 10 years later and you're afraid to be alone?

How do you listen to your inner knowing if you hate your job but you're afraid to give it up for fear you won't be able to find a job you really like?

How do you listen to your inner knowing if you want more but still don't feel good enough?

All of these are valid questions. They aren't truth but they are valid.

The truth is that you are and I am:
* Creative
* Kind
* Loving
* Beautiful
* Expanding
* Abundant
* Receptive

If we'd only just say "yes" to life, "yes" to the process, "yes" to our dreams, "yes" to letting go of the things we never truly needed in the first place, "yes" to a future that's being creating with every thought right now, "yes" to endless possibilities, "yes" to letting go of limiting beliefs, "yes" to making this the best decade of our lives starting NOW, if we'd only say "yes", the one thing each person would find out very quickly is this:

The universe conspires in our favor to bring us what we want and believe we can have... ALWAYS.

Try it and see for yourself.
