Has anyone else’s life just gotten little bit more crazy in the last couple of months, but in your own personally unique style of crazy?
I’m super happy to report that my crazy has involved a lot of changes within me and now with-out. Things are changing and moving in the direction that I have been focused upon.
I set a huge goal for myself that even one friend told me I shouldn’t be so fixated on how it will look. (I was specific about a few details) Be open to what may come. I understand my friend doesn’t want me to feel the pain of disappointment. I get it. And I have since reminded myself that it can look like I am seeing it now, or better. :-)
You see, I've GOT something bigger than me. I was not going to decide HOW I was going to attain my goal, or WHEN it would happen. One potential solution hadn't even been on my radar until a few hours after I set that intention.
I FINALLY GOT IT. When and how are immaterial to the feeling of HAVING IT. It’s done and exists, and I will be inspired to find it along my path. I am allowing the power of the Universe to propel me into exactly what I’m transmitting with my feelings.
Sounds like Disney-Fairy-Horse-Manure?
LOL, I know. And I don’t mind being the town fool. The stupid, happy person. Because I know that when I’M totally convinced that my life is fabulous and I’m counting my blessings everyday – especially the intangible ones… then it will happen. And it is! I am watching my new life unfold!
One of my goals is to create a six-figure income. I am on track to get there. I feel like I’m riding this huge energy wave (which I know you are too because we’re all in this together!) I just got a whole lot busier, and everything else in my life went into hyper-drive! It’s awesome because if I am honest with myself, of all the things filling my plate I would choose them again. There’s a couple here and there that I’m still transforming, but sometimes you just got to stop working, breathe deeply and enjoy the beauty of your work so far. It’s a journey, and one worth taking.
I’m sure you've heard: OH! Take 10 breaths and you’ll calm the anxiety or anger that is taking you to the edge. I’ve tried that and 10 breaths are too few! I need a lot more!! Last Sunday, I went to an event at my neighborhood Buddhist Monastery called “Day of Mindfulness.” I didn’t stay all day this time, but I participated in the meditation walk and the Dharma talk following the walk.
Needless to say, I did a lot of deep breathing from the top chakra, all the way down to my root chakra. Up and down and blowing breath through each one. Anytime a bell chimed, I closed my eyes deliciously, and took another deep breath. I think one can get high on deep breathing! You know what I’m talking about!
The next morning was the first morning that I awoke feeling great in a while. About a week prior, I had started waking with various degrees of anxiety. But anxiety does not serve the cause – aka my goal. So, I had been breathing through it a few times while still lying down, and during meditation.
However, after being with the monks and nuns and all the other visitors – and walking in their gardens…I decided that would be a regular event on my calendar.
It was SO grounding.
And if I can't make it, or they aren't holding an event, I promised myself I would walk in my own garden and breathe because it is so healing.
It’s also important to allow the pain or anger to emerge, or we just store it, and then we have a hard time healing and staying healthy. However, it is just as important to move through the negative feeling as quickly as possible to keep our transmission to the Universe clear and consistent. We are sending out a vibration whether it be positive or negative. And the Universe responds in kind. I’ve been feeling my anger and sadness deeply, and then feeling them leave my body. I visualize it dissolving. That doesn’t mean I’m done. I’ve just cleared another layer.
WHENEVER we are having a feeling that is undesirable, regardless of the cause and when we are ready and comfortable, BREATH DEEPLY. Several times. Don’t even count. Breath in and hold and then let go slowly, until you can feel the anxiety, fear or negativity let loose and leave your body. Breathing in calm, love, peace, all my needs are met, positive thoughts.
I may not feel exuberantly excited, but I am calm and at peace again, and that is definitely a feeling I want to keep having, so I say it works very well. Share in the comments if you agree!
