Miracle Monday

The universe is alive with brilliant stars and you are one of them!  Each of us is a star in the galaxy of life and we all have the power to manifest what we want.

Don’t you ever doubt your inner power, regardless of the day of the week or the hour of the day.  As is the power of the galaxy, you have the same inner strength.  It may take diligent work for many to magnify that strength, but be assured  that it can be done. One thought group espoused that manifesting miracles basically only required you to think about waht you wanted and it will appear, similar to a genie in a bottle.

Well,  if that fantasy were true there would be raw hands from rubbing so hard and there would be no woes because we all wish for something better. Dreams require awakened action. Manifesting Mondays takes you to an awareness and point to action you must take to see the change you desire. I started a different type of inner work last week using The Passion Test model by Janet and Chris Attwood that was facilitated by one of their certified trainers.  It was work! Thank you Roy van de Mull.

My discovery is that my passions have changed. This is not utterly profound in that as we phase through our lives, this should be the case. But, often as I can attest, we stay in the same pattern assuming that our passions remain constant throughout life. Not True!

Our passions change and what we want to manifest changes. This is one reason why I urge you to check in on what you truly want to manifest each week.  Here is a suggested process:

1. Wake up (regardless of the time of the day) and meditate. Wake up and feel alive. Take at least 10 minutes. Really get down deep into your internal awareness and meditate on what you want. Be still, concentrate, relax and feel your inner energy.
2. Come clean. Really clean up any lingering mess. Ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself and disallow negativity.  Then take the time to refresh your inner happiness; tap into your passion and enjoy the moments where you were funny, joyful, spiritually uplifted, attuned, in your natural zone of expression.
3. Quiet down. Take a few minutes on Mondays to quiet external noise and allow yourself to experience quiet peace.
4. Clear Your Focus. Clearly, vividly, expressly focus on ONE thing and only ONE thing every Monday. The next Monday you may choose to shift your focus to another thing or remain focused on what miracle you want to manifest.
5. See the end. See your finish point. Be in the scenery and experience all of the expressions that accompany embracing your Monday Miracle.

Lisa Nichols, of The Secret, in her book, No Matter What, specifies the muscles we must develop to create the life we love.  Two of those muscles are-faith in myself and take action muscle. Dreams require action to manifest – act well and wisely. This is your true, passionate life.
This process may require some practice for those who are beginning to Manifest on Mondays, but in a short time, with direct commitment, you will accelerate through these steps with ease and purpose.

Begin today…right now.
Manifest your Monday right now and let us know the result….Be well, be clear, and expect miracles.

 

Choose to live and give

“Don’t speak to me about your religion; first show it to me in how you treat other people.
Don’t tell me how much you love your God; show me in how much you love all His children.
Don’t preach to me your passion for your faith; teach me through your compassion for your neighbors.
In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.”
   ~ Cory BookerMayor of Newark, N.J.

Poem: Don’t Quit

Don’t Quit                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 (author unknown)

When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill.
When funds are low and the debts are high.
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not QUIT.

(a shared inspiration)

Never, ever give up.

Miracle Monday

My the days flow faster and faster as we approach the calendar close of Year 2011.  Here is a thought that uplifted me when I read it:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

~Frank A. Clark

The message from that quote for this Miracle Monday is to check your path. If there are no obstacles, which is an absolute probability, then are you going anywhere purposeful.  Manifesting Monday Miracles is a pathway. Beware and be ready for the challenge of obstacles.  Let us extend this discussion to solutions when challenges arise. There are specific questions and actions to take when confronted with the potential detour of an obstacle:

  1. What Do I Love to Practice? Martha Beck suggests this question as one pivot for manifesting miraculous, sustainable change. Miracles manifest when you practice what you love. According to Beck, “Studies have shown that masters are simply people who’ve practiced a skill intensely for 10,000 hours or more. That requires loving—not liking, loving—what you do. If you really want to excel, go where you’re passionate enough to practice.” Even after the love is gone, re-kindle the passion or move on to another love.
  2. What did I Learn? There is something to learn from each challenge we face.  Ask yourself, what learning lessons are embedded here? Then, apply those lessons and create a manifesting future.  Take different actions, acquire different habits, create distinct opportunities along your learning path.

These are only two questions that will start a review of what you love and what you have learned.  It is my belief that loving and learning are the masterpieces of which miracles are made.  spend some quiet time reflecting on these questions, answer them with quiet resolve and then make a conviction to Manifest what you love and learned this Monday.

You are the creator of the masterpiece.

Increase Power in Your Life

Life is the performance of function. The degree to which you strengthen and leverage your active functioning determines the level of power in your life.

Power is managed control of fear.

Two days ago I was kicked out of boot-camp because I had an episode of spiked high blood pressure which frightened the trainer but not me. My power reaction was to consent to him calling paramedics which confirmed my blood pressure was dangerously high; I felt real bad but I had no intention of stopping my goal of exercising to get fit and lose weight.

After a visit to my cardiologist, my next power move was to talk to another fitness camp trainer and enroll in a new program.   Monday is the new start date – that’s the exercise of power.

When you know your goal and why, and the reasons are compelling and felt from your soul, that is unstoppable power. Where is your power cord? What are you so determined to do that the achievement finish line is all you align your activity to match?

What is power to you?

Send in your answer to this question along with a dialogue about why staying in your power, in spite of obstacles, is important to you. Share your feelings and experiences so that we collectively learn how to increase power in all life situations.   As a reward, I will send you a FREE copy of my book, For the BEST of You, and post your comments on the blog. Let’s power light up the world by inspiring others to know their power and increase the wattage of why in their lives.

You are powerful!

Miracle Monday

Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
~Harriet Tubman

You have within you the strength, patience and passion to change the world today.  Miracle Monday, or any day, is your opportunity to see a difference in not only your world, but to manifest a miracle that, by extension, changes the world.  You have that much power within your mind and soul.

Let’s put into practice manifesting a miracle.

1. Wake up (regardless of the time of the day) and meditate. Wake up and feel alive. Take 10 minutes. Really get down deep into your internal awareness and meditate on what you want. Recommendation: CDBeyond the Wall – Mark Romero (www.markromeromusic.com)
2. Come clean. Clean up any lingering mess, forgo anger or any other distress. Ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself and disallow negativity.  Then take the time to refresh your inner happiness; tap into your passion and enjoy the moments where you were funny, joyful, spiritually uplifted, attuned, in your natural zone of expression.
3. Quiet down. Take a few minutes on Mondays to quiet external noise and allow yourself to experience quiet peace.
4. Clear Your Focus. Clearly, vividly, expressly focus on ONE thing and only ONE thing every Monday. The next Monday you may choose to shift your focus to another thing or remain focused on what miracle you want to manifest.
5. See the end. See your finish point. Be in the scenery and experience all of the expressions that accompany embracing your Monday Miracle.

This process may require some practice for those who are beginning to Manifest on Mondays, but in a short time, with direct commitment, you will accelerate through these steps with ease and purpose.

Begin today…right now.
Manifest your Monday right now and let us know the result….Be well, be clear, and expect miracles.

 

Emotional Exercise 5

Exhale, you have been through four rigorous exercises. Job well done; finish line ahead.

  1. How do you feel?
  2. What has changed?
  3. Who are you?

Don’t skip over these three questions – answer them out loud with your hand over your heart. Feel the vibration as you orally recognize that you feel different, are different and are fully aware of your mental and physical being.

In fact, send me your answers so that you too have a written record for posterity. When you write your feelings and your expectations along with vocalizing them, according to Jack Canfield in The Power of Focus, you are imprinting inviolable strength and tapping  your inner support for powerful change.

What really makes me happy is knowing I can tap into the well of strength that rests within me…

No one can ever take from you … the assurance that you are enough, that you are the joy the world needs.”—  Samantha Page

Now that you have done this, you are ready for the final Emotional Exercise Five. Congratulations.

Emotional Exercise 5:

     Draw a mandala and place your goal (the WHY and VALUE statements with an end point) from Emotional Exercise Four at the bottom of your mandala.

A mandala in simple terms means “circle” or “center.” Shapes and patterns are added to a clearly identified calming central point.

  • Mandalas are the merging for healing of body, spirit and soul
  • Mandalas uncover your own creativity
  • Mandalas help you discover what is real for you
  • Mandalas allow you to master your inner and outer being
  • Mandalas aide calm and assist you to gain trust and composure

Do an internet search on mandalas and you will find origin information, free mandala drawing pages, and all sorts of interesting information about creating your own unique artistic representation of yourself and your goal.  It does not matter if your mandala is crude or intricate, the main point here is to use your creative, fun, and free-spirit side of your brain and your life.

You have become a master creator.  Post your mandala with your goal written at the bottom, the one you created, in a prominent place that you will see daily and often.  Free your mind, the outcome will follow.

Life is the performance of function; and the individual really lives only when he performs every function – physical, mental, and spiritual – of which he is capable.”       ~Dennis Wattles

You have a right to what you desire, so pursue your intentional goal(s) with unbiased fervor. Want completely.  Love intensely.  Live with passion that is with full faith and function.

Emotions are indicators of inner feelings that should be exercised or exorcised, depending on where they come from.  The emotions that we have exercised, I along with you, has oxygenated a new you, defined a passion, and inculcated an imprint of exciting rich, colorful change.   There is no more to be done.  Remain active, exercise your emotions often – pause and take the time for more inner discovery.

Don’t stop at one mandala, unless you want to. You can do this for each goal, outcome that you have. Create a symbolic picture of your core value and goal.

Emotional Exercise Five is complete – when your mandala masterpiece with the goal written at the bottom is done.

Feel free, I absolutely invite you to do this, to upload your creative images to this blog. This would be wonderful!

Give thanks.

Be, just be.

Emotional Exercise 4

The happiest life is that which constantly exercises and educates what is best in us.    ~Hamerton

You have reached a pinpoint moment in your life by already completing Emotional Exercises 1, 2, and 3.  Really, I mean really, really feel good about doing the exercises.  Taking effective action and piercing your layers of socialization and emotional makeup is life altering.  But, we are not done yet, Emotional Exercise 4 is here.

But, before I begin the instructions for it, please sit in a quiet place with your feet on the floor and just smile. Smile deeply and feel the resonance of inner happiness and joy that knows you have begun to re-frame your emotions into a sacred personal picture/vision of who you are that is intimate with accurate and acute, deep feelings about what you passionately desire that is bordered with vivid coloration of WHY you deserve to have it all and more.  Smile from your eyes, smile from your heart and smile from your soul inside. Priceless

How refreshing.  Smiling releases healing endorphins which ready you for Emotional Exercise 4.  Here are your instructions:

  • Repeat Exercise 1 by refreshing your memory about the free-form word list that you wrote. You are only given three minutes for this part-look, review, and stop. Your three minutes are up.
  • Next, take five minutes and read your WHY list that you wrote in Emotional Exercise 2. Five minute review, stop!
  • Third, read your ONE value. It should be so ingrained in your being that you know, with an inner “I got this” knowing that you can recall your ONE value without paper.  If you have to look it up or find it, go back to Emotional Exercise 3 and repeat until you are clear and definite about that ONE value that surpasses all others.
  •  New instruction – have a Walmart moment; match it!  Match your one WHY with your ONE value and then write your goal using those words. 

For example: my WHY is to feel and be healthy at a weight that supports longevity and my ONE value is self-respect.  Therein, my goal statement is to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day and reach a pumping heart rate so that I will lose weight and reach a weight goal of 165 pounds which will strengthen my self-respect and heighten my peace of accomplishment.

Notice the words in my stated goal. You see action (exercise), you see a definite schedule (30 minutes a day), you see intensity (heart pumping heart rate), you see my end point (165 pounds) and you see how much I value self-respect and why (strengthen and heighten accomplishment).  This goal is clear and strong in that I acknowledge that I already have high self-respect and peace within myself around this specific goal.  Also, note that this is one goal – my value changes with each of my other goals. For instance, loving and being loved is the prime value in my relationship goal. This makes sense; each goal should carry a value specific to it.

→To complete Emotional Exercise 4 – write your value and goal statement that incorporates your WHY and ONE value that is definite, clear, meshes feelings with intent, and has an end point.  That is what a goal is – it is a written statement and mental picture that is full of emotion that states what you want to achieve that is definite and has a point of closure.   Match it! Line up these two things – what you value with your why – as a deliberate, absolute statement of intention that invests your deepest emotions and states a end point.

When all of this is synchronized and in harmony with your inner belief, you will see your choices and outlook radically change.  A study of achievers prove that this formula — a true match of WHY and VALUE with a ending time frame — is what sets them apart from those who talk and are guided by fear.

Hint, you can probably guess what Emotional Exercise 5 might be.  If not, and even if you can guess what it is, this closing exercise will seal your success, solidify your choices, and solve your recidivism.  Gaming is over, only goals are ahead.

For now, go back to your quiet place after you have finished writing your statement and SMILE! Get to your happy spot because you are designing YOUR happiest life which constantly exercises and educates what is best for you.

You are loved!
