“For your exercise this week concentrate on Tennyson’s beautiful lines ‘Speak to Him, thou, for He hears, and spirit with spirit can meet, Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.’ Then try to realize that when you do ‘Speak to Him’ you are in touch with Omnipotence. This realization and recognition of this Omnipresent power will quickly destroy any and every form of sickness or suffering and substitute harmony and perfection.” I love thinking about this ! that He is closer than breathing, and that when I speak to Him my spirit and His spirit can meet and suffering disappears and harmony and perfection ensues. I know I definitely feel completely transformed when I sit in gratitude on all that He has provided in my life and continues to provide in my life. I know I definitely feel secure and at peace when I think of Him and how our spirits meet, and He is providing me with the infinite goodness, ideas, desires in my life- that He is leading me to the way, the people, the opportunities the ideas – EVERYTHING that is good and that I desire. And in this is the healing and the joy and the peace…..everything I desired in the first place.
I loved the hope imparted in this weeks reading!! “As soon as we become conscious of the inexhaustible power in the world within, we begin to draw on this power and apply and develop the greater possibilities which this discernment has realized, because whatever we become conscious of, is invariably manifested in the objective world, is brought forth into tangible expression. This is because the Infinite Mind, which is the source from which all things proceed, is one and indivisible, and each individual is a channel whereby this Eternal Energy is being manifested. Our ability to think is our ability to act upon this Universal Substance, and what we think is what is created or produced in the objective world.”
I have really been focusing on this principle and aiming to embed these principles deep into my conscious and therefore, subconscious. This past weekend I was at a conference and they were raffling off prizes and I put these principles in to practice. A simple application, I realize, but to build my belief I’m starting with things I feel are possible. So I desired with intensity to win some of the prizes, and even said “YAYE I’m winning the prize”. But I was not until I got very intensely focused on the prize AND stated my raffle number out loud AND said with ENTHUSIASM did the prize come! When they said my number, I knew it because I had put all the principles into action!! And I was so so excited!! I’m applying more and more and more of the principles into my life and I am changing!
I was just reading some papers I wrote ONLY a year or so ago and the statements on there were pretty dismal about the state of affairs of my life at that time. HOWEVER, there was so much desire for change written on the pages, and a willingness to stay open to what came along my path and decision to take action upon opportunities put in my path that I felt in my body would lead to my transformation. I’ve always felt in my bones that I could transform and become so much more for my family and those I encountered. However, I’ve never know the exact path. But the AWESOME thing I wanted to write about today is that I am of the strong solid conviction, (especially after seeing the writing in those pages and having learned what I have learned in MKMMA) that if any of us holds a desire in our hearts and concentrates on the vision and does not let go of the CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION until it comes to pass….IT WILL COME TO PASS!! The way will be provided. I’ve always believed the scripture that says, “the LORD will provide”. And it is so awesome to watch it happening. I am not at the top of my company or winning bunches of awards YET, but now I feel so excited and confident that what I envision will come to pass because I have the strong belief that it will, the willingness to act and the willingness to concentrate on the vision and cultivate gratitude for its having come!!
I was just so excited today to read these writings of mine from the past about my son’s lack of health and now to see his amazing vibrant physical and mental health AND his calm peaceful state…my amazing coach appeared…and MKMMA came into my path. I am so excited that my business is starting to turn and grow, and that leaders are emerging growing their teams without me exhausting myself trying to do it all. I turned it over and am applying the principles and movement is in the best direction!!!
“You may know that thought constantly, eternally is taking form, is forever seeking expression, or you may not, but the fact remains that if your thought is health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finances as lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.”
I never knew before a few years ago that “what you think about you bring about”, but this course and the quote above confirms it! As does the outcome of my life, although I never knew this law was a law in effect. And although I did not know of this law prior to a few years ago, that certainly did not stop it from impacting my life in a huge way. (I sure wish I grew up being taught about this exceedingly powerful law). But I never understood how it was true until this course. It is in the vibrations of my thoughts with people, places and circumstances coming into resonance and therefore coming in to my life, that this law comes into effect. So now I understand why it is so incredibly important that I think of my DMP, press release, recording of my voice, gratitude cards etc. because then that vibration of happiness and joy and abundance is sent out, and that is what then returns!!!
The second very powerful thing I am learning in relation to this law is that the speed and power by which my ideal and desires manifest, is to the degree that I am concentrating POWERFULLY on my ideal with INTENSELY POWERFUL GOOD EMOTION !!! Lesson 19 states that the stronger the polarity created, the stronger the vibration of thought due to concentration and powerful emotion, the more powerfully and quickly the ideal comes into manifestation BECAUSE a strong polarity and Vibration draw it in!!! WOW!!! this is so profound!!!
I’m thinking intensely about happy, dynamic, positive, giving, loving, joyful people coming into my life, and they are really starting to show up in the different places I go, and that is soooo exciting for me!!!!
AND I LOVE lesson 20 stating that this (sitting in silence in a relaxed state with intense concentration and emotion) is “the greatest labor-saving device every dreamed of”. Because I am soooooo ready to release the work-a-holic exhaustion for powerful quick manifestation WITH EASE because of my strong desire in my sit!!!!!
This is the week of Valentines!!! I was so impressed by the law of Giving!! GIVE more GET more!! And “bring a gift to every encounter” as we have learned about in the course. It has been easy to give hugs, smiles, cards, hearts and gifts this week as many are in the mood of LOVE due to the holiday. I have seen how excited I have gotten to give people gifts in my family and outside of my family. I have sent cards, given cards, given gifts, and given lots of hugs. And what I have seen has been so beautiful!!!!! I have seen soooo many more smiles and excitement in others, but I have also noticed how excited I have been to see their excitement and gratitude in recieving the gift, card or hug. Truly give more get more is an absolute law! And I have LOVED getting the opportunity to see it expressed abundantly in my life this week!!!!! It is like the love, joy, smile vibration is amplified to the infinite degree!! I LOVE it!!!!!
I always wondered how these people have these incredible ideas that go on to transform the world: like Microsoft, Apple, iTunes and Spanks =) I wonder how did I not think of some of these things – something so simple as the portable squeeze bottle for baby food on the go, or the multitude of other seemingly simple inventions. Now I understand how these individuals receive their “enlightenment” =) It is as Hanell says, “Thought is the invisible link by which the individual comes into communication with the Universal, the finite with the Infinite, the seen with the Unseen. Thought is the magic by which the human is transformed into a being who thinks and knows and feels and acts.” It is the tapping in to the infinite mind in STILLNESS and SILENCE in FULL concentration and attention on the ideal that the individual contacts the infinite. I was taught to WORK to ACHIEVE, so I grew up thinking I had to WORK WORK WORK growing up. Unfortunately, my work, work, work strategy left me barely able to pay the bills and EXHAUSTED!!!!! I was determined to find another way!!!!!!!
As I have embarked on this journey with MKMMA, I have found that it is in my sit or after I received the divine inspiration for my actions. I have been not exhausted, but rejuvenated by my time in silence and stillness. I have been so excited reading my DMP and Press Release (feeling that it has already taken place) that I meet people with excitement, and I am therefore, meeting people who are excited and exciting to be around versus the old me meeting people that were exhausted like I was. This whole process has been so beautiful and so exceedingly transformative!!!
I had the coolest thing happen this week!! I was beginning to feel like: I am remaining faithful to the exercises (of course I have missed a sit or a read etc. over the past 3 months but I have been definitely giving it my very best), and I felt like: “when am I going to have a big ah ha? WOW this really does work.” This week it happened, it was like happening in slow motion, it was so awesome. I felt like “oh my gosh, I’m going to keep going!!! This really is changing my world!” One of my desires is to have a raw vegan chef that can make meals for us because I just don’t have making the food as my priority over caring for our boys, working, sleeping, doing these exercises, my growth etc. There are lots of chefs out there, but not many GOOD raw vegan chefs. So my boys wanted to go to the farmers market after one of their appointments, and I thought sure it’s on the way home. We go there and lo and behold, raw vegan snacks. I look up and I see the man that used to run the raw vegan restaurant about 25 min. from our home. I said, “Hello! you look so familiar! Did you used to own the raw vegan restaurant on El Toro?” He said, “Why Yes, but my partner bought me out so now I am making raw vegan food for people and catering. I go to FMs and prepare meals for people, and I DELIVER!!” I was like: “YES YES YES YES you do!!! (in my head of course because he has no idea I’ve been talking about my raw vegan chef every day in my DMP , looking at it on my board, and mini book mark of my board etc. etc. etc.” I was sooooo excited that he looked at me like: “WOW I’ve never had anyone so excited to see me before!” I was so overjoyed I almost hopped over the table and gave him a big huge hug!! But I did not want to totally freak him out =) =) =) So I just got his information and I will be so excited to enjoy our meals!!!!
So that was one of my awesome miracles this week! I am expecting my dream , ideal, self-motivated, teachable, grateful, humble, servant-hearted leader to arrive in my life any day now!! She is on her way in I can just feel it and I know it’s already DONE Because I’ve seen it in my mind!!
I love the quote from this week! “All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own”
From the reading this week it became very clear to me that it is not just holding the ideal that makes it become reality, but by holding the concentration and attaching strong feeling to it along with the other senses that puts it into the subconscious that makes it real. It is the subconscious and its connection with the divine that goes to work while we are seemingly unaware. And it is through relaxation during this concentration that the divine is able to enter. “We can form our own mental images, through our own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless or exterior conditions, regardless of environment of every kind, and it is by the exercise of this power that we can control our own destiny, body, mind and soul. It is by the exercise of this power that we take our fate out of the hands of chance, and consciously make for ourselves the experiences which we desire because when we consciously realize a condition, that condition will eventually manifest in our lives; it is therefore evident that in the last analysis thinking is the one great cause in life.” This is so not what I was taught growing up, but it is so liberating because I do not have to be trapped in some unpredictable mystery of fate. I can create my future, my life and my experience simply by entering the discipline of silence, thought, concentration upon the ideal and the desired. This is such a relieving and beautiful reality for me.
” The form will depend upon the mental images from which it emanates, this will depend upon the depth of the impression, the predominance of the idea, the clarity of the vision, the boldness of the image…..If you desire to visualize a different environment, the process is simply to hold the ideal in mind, until your vision has been made real; give no thought to persons, place or things….the environment you desire will contain everything necessary; the right persons, and the right things will come at the right time and in the right place….what we visualize already exists in the spiritual world.” My task is to hold the mental image as long as possible and as bold and clear as possible as often as possible in and out of silence; and it ALREADY EXISTS. This is such a radical concept for me because this is nothing I was ever taught, but it is so exciting for me that I can create the increasingly beautiful life that I desire. This is so freeing, so empowering. It has not been easy for me, but my desire to grow in this is so huge that I know because of the law of practice I will become better and better at it and my desires will manifest more and more every day. I LOVE how the lesson states that once my big bright bold clear vision exists in my mind-it EXISTS!!! It is so comforting to KNOW that the RIGHT persons and things will arrive at the right time & place!! I LOVE THIS!!! This is soooo awesome!!!!!
Focusing on kindness this week has been so beautiful!! The more I’ve focused on it, the more kindness I’ve seen, the more kindness I’ve shown! 🙂 The more kindness that’s been in and around me, the more joy I’ve felt and the more joy I’ve seen. My world and the world has become a much brighter place!! What a beautiful week!!!!
- What I have noticed this week is that as I have remained faithful to the exercises my thoughts have transformed: when my mind is left unattended, my thoughts are on my gratitudes, my ideal, the things I do successfully, my vision and my excitement over these things. I find my gratitude growing, my joy overflowing and my energy levels raising . When I go out and about, I feel happier and more joyful, and I am meeting happier more joyful people! It is very exciting! I think the essence inside is transforming, therefore the circumstances outside are transforming!! It is so exciting because I have always wanted my thoughts to be on gratitude, joy, my ideal, but at times they were not. And now that I am developing the habit to think of my vision and my ideal the things that bring such joy to my life, it is transforming me on the inside and the outside effects are changing!!!! I’m so very grateful for this!!!!
