75 Questions: Day 21

white-lotus-flower                           Meditation allows one to know their invisible self.

There are 75 days before the start of a new Gregorian calendar year. So, for the next 54 days (Monday – Sunday) the blog postings will ask you one question. That question may inspire you, it may perplex you, it may anger you, or it may tickle you.  It’s about you. The whole thrust of the 75 questions is to prompt a reaction and honest answer to the probe.

The direct intent of the 75 questions is to capture change. The questions are to be a catalyst for inner change that leaves you feeling more dynamic, powerful, intrigued, and authentic. When these salient emotions are opened up within you (they already exist), you change and your world changes and the whole world changes with you.

Post your answers, you will get a response to your replies and we will use these 75 questions to lift life as the year 2017 begins.

Question 21: Do you meditate?

Monday Miracle: Passion

What is it that makes you sing? What is it that takes your breath away? What is it that stimulates you so much that you live, breathe, and think about it all of the time?

The answer to either one or all of these questions inform your passion.  Think about your answers, because therein lies your passion-a passion that fuels everything that you manifest.  It is a true axiom that you you think about happens and to take it further, what you are joyous enough about to sing about it, what takes your breathe away or what occupies your heart and thoughts all of the time-will happen.

You will see it come to be. You will realize your wants. You will create your passion IF…. The big IF is when you are practicing your passion with active energy. This passion we are talking about here is beyond physical passion – far beyond. The passion which allows you to manifest what you want or something better is a deep inner spark or fire that drives your every move and thought.

Henry Miller says, “what one wants is unrestrained passion, fire for fire.”

Fire for fire. Ignite the fire flame by:

  • Taking action. First make it real in your mind. Know what you know-inculcate that belief in your passion deep within. But, then take action. Do something every day that moves you closer to creating the tangible manifestation of  your passionate fire.
  • Being unrestrained. Be as unrestrained as the wind. Flow with it, create it. Breathe it, feel it, know it without any closure conditions or boxed-in thinking. Abandon conditioned thinking and embrace open solicitation and expectation.
  • Seeking. Don’t settle for selfish grandiosity.  Instead, seek resources that will strengthen your passion. Consult with others who have achieved to a level that you want to, but be very careful to make sure you are moving forward and not stalling by seeking too many opinions and remaining in the realm of safety while doing too little to flame your passion.
  • Asking. Be clear enough about your passion and ask from that space of truth and clarity for exactly for that. Nothing else, no more than that.

Have a strong passion. Live expectantly from that passion. Act deliberately in pursuit of your passion. Find an unshakable inner joy from passion. These are some of the steps advanced by Chris and Janet Attwood in the Passion Test.

Be passionate.

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.
