Miracle Monday: Quiet

A miracle will happen today! What a fabulous declaration for Monday.

It is true that you can reach any goal with the proper perspective.  One grounding exercise is to be quiet-really quiet in the mind and mouth.

My request today, especially after the possible frenzy from holiday travel, gatherings or shopping last week, open this week with some quiet mindfulness.  Pause for a moment, right where you are and do a mental examination of various aspects of your life and determine whether you are satisfied with them. For example, you may think about finances during this time. If so, examine how you feel about money and how you manage money right now. Or, you may need to think longer about a family relationship. Consider the dynamics of the interactions you have with that particular person.  It does not matter what you spend your quiet time on, simply quietly think.

Now that you have spent the requisite quiet time with mindfulness and you know what you intend to improve, next take a sheet of paper and begin jotting notes about the ideal circumstances you would like to create whether it’s with money, family relationships or some other aspect of your life. Creatively write, as offered by Julie Cameron. As you write, without censure, tap into your core of pure genius, and let perfect solutions flow onto the page.

Quiet mindfulness allows you to co-create through the purity of divine intention the most solid, revealing solutions. The barriers that tend to block your flow of manifesting a miracle often comes from your learned response to control or force solutions that ends up creating more blockages in our lives. Release your mind, let go of your thoughts of control, and open yourself to the flowing fonts of inner governance.

“In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.”

~Robert Heinlein

Relax and open your mind to creative inspiration and you will euphorically discover that creating inspiring details of what you want becomes a simple and effortless process. You can manifest a miracle simply by first knowing in clear detail the circumstances you intend to create and then inviting the perfect solutions to materialize. What you then attract is a powerful intention that operates on your behalf to give you what you want or something better.

Bob Proctor always asks: What do you want?

When you can clearly answer that question, believe me, your circumstances will then shift, and eventually match the inner intentions you hold  for your life, be it money, relationships, family, weight or anything else.

Today, quietly make your miracle.

Miracle Monday: Ask

Happy Monday, create a miracle!

There is a formula for manifesting what you want in life (we have gone over them in previous posts) and one component is to ask or probe the issue.  But, in the asking – ask specifically for what you WANT. Many people invest energy and emotion on lengthy lists or exercises that concentrate on what they DO NOT WANT. No. In your asking, ask for exactly what you want.

Simply, specifically ask for the exact thing that you want. Check in with your passion radar, even re-take the Passion Test by Chris and Janet Attwood. Find your core desire and then stop and make a request from that-just ask!

Never concern yourself with justifying why you ask for this specific miracle, not to worry the universe will only supply that which is good (even a teachable lesson) for you.  Derrick Ashong, host of The Derrick Ashong Experience on Oprah Radio  underscores this process.  He says,

“When I am starting a project, I often ask questions: If I am asking questions chances are that I’m about to do something worthwhile.”

Do something else worthwhile today, strengthen your miracle chances by asking for what you want.

You are a miracle, expect the miraculous!

 

Miracle Monday: The “Dorothy” Effect

Good morning world of miracles. Good morning to each of you miracles in the world – wow! Life and the miraculous energy that surrounds and protects us is good.

This Miracle Monday: The “Dorothy” Effect

Last night I watched the last thirty minutes of the classic The Wizard of Oz and was once again captured by this movie based on the book by L. Frank Baum. Fascinating and Fantastic! I have watched Dorothy, toto, tin man, the lion and the scarecrow since I was a little girl at different intervals of my life and loved it. But, last night the deeper meaning of the story finally crystallized for me: You can have anything you desire when you have the heart, courage and mind to look within.

How profound! It is profound to see a movie, set in the late 1930’s, telling us “there is no place like home” within our inner being and belief. There is no place like the homestead of knowledge, a heartfelt belief and the courage to follow your own “yellow brick road” of success. What behaviorist, including me, have been saying is that there is no “secret” to success, it is laid out in front of you.

Let us review your success yellow brick road:

  1. Vision – clearly see your land of Oz where your visions and dreams to come true.  See everything in vivid natural color, feel the excitement of achievement,  and bask in the celebration of getting what you want or getting to where you want to be. Begin with the end in mind as says Stephen Covey.
  2. Action – follow the yellow brick road. Take a step, then another, then another…pick up the pace. Do something every day that move you forward and accelerates you toward each success marker you have set.
  3. Watch – be on guard for “wicked witch” obstacles that will come your way. Keep your focus and stay on the road.  Look for danger, step over pitfalls, detour past doubt, face the fears and dance your way to victory. Never give up, don’t stray off your destined path.
  4. Enroll – accept help. Enroll a mentor and get a team of true supporters you will guide your power.   This is important to keep faith in your inner power and have devoted supporters who have the heart, knowledge and courage to stand with and for you.
  5. Acknowledge – be grateful each moment for every person and circumstance that comes to you. Be mindful of thankfulness and pulsate gratitude. Attract what you rightly deserve and desire, give magnanimously and expect graciously. Share.

Dorothy knew there is no place like the home of love, knowledge and courage within yourself and now so do you.

Click your success heels together three times and repeat after me: There is no place like home, there is no place like home, there is no place like home.

Miracle Monday: Potential

Have you thought about your potential?

Have you been told you’ve got potential? Well I have. My evaluator at a Toastmasters meeting at my Club, Dawn-Breakers, gave me that feedback after I finished my Ice Breaker speech. Those words made an indelible impact in my life. To shorten the story, hearing “You’ve got potential” as a speaker changed the course of my destiny. Because of my passion for words and a desire to encourage others, hearing someone assert that I had potential was the fuel I needed to jet into a different world.

You have got potential! Internalize those words on this Miracle Monday.

You’ve got potential! Say these words out loud to yourself and feel the boost you get from honoring the fact that you have potential.

YOU HAVE POTENTIAL! Write that down. Write at the top of the page, I have potential then list all of the areas, which I feel are unlimited, in which you have potential.

Now make it a Miracle Monday by looking at your expansive list and find one or two things that you have the strongest potential and then take that germinating potential and do something in that area. If it is to paint, paint something today. If it is to garden, go outside and play in the dirt today. If your potential (talent) is in fund-raising or sales, do that. You have this time TODAY to work on your latent potential. It was always there, now DO something about it.

There is nothing to lose here, just act. Act as if…act with freedom and abandon. Act without worry or concern about tomorrow, live and manifest your potential in magnificent power right now.  Be creative.  Think: I have no doubts, I have no regret…just be mindful of your mighty potential now.  Live your bliss, be in pure joy, deepen your inner happiness-recall this truth often, “You’ve got potential.”

Potentiality is your intrinsic right.

Your Miracle Monday is filled with potential. Seek your potential this Monday, live rightfully in your power, manifest your gifts.

You are a miracle, magnify your potential!

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.

Miracle Monday

Sometimes you experience moments that have a longer residual timeline than others and those I call “time treasures” that contribute to  making Miracles. All experienced moments have residual value, but some impress your soul longer than others> Pay attention to the imprint of each experience, especially pay attention to how long the memory lingers in your emotional consciousness, and you will soon see a pattern  from which you should examine and adjust your behavioral repsonses to.

For instance, if you notice a pattern of ebullience when you see a new puppy, then you have an affinity for dogs.  If you are ecstasy when you cook or eat delicious food (I have two friends who nearly salivate when then are in the kitchen, not me), then you have a joy for culinary expression.  Or, if you are euphoric when you look at art, then you have a residual trait for painting or creative expression.

Don’t deny or overlook where you notice your passion!

This weekend I had the honor and distinct pleasure-high ecstasy, euphoria, and ebullience-as I witnessed and participated in my niece’s wedding. First of all it was exquisite, one of the most beautiful, well planned marriage ceremonies (unbiased here) I have ever attended. What was the treasure, from which I will have indelible imprints therefrom is the evident love shared between these two newly weds.  I discovered that  I cherish love-thus it is the subject of my Miracle Monday.

Make your Miracle Monday a day of treasures, whether it is from a flashback of your moments of passion or a new, in the moment experience you are having right how.  Miracle Monday is your gift for the day…be it any day or time; just recognize and savor the ecstasy, euphoria, and ebullience in your life.

Make this Monday your Miracle!
