75 Questions: Day 69

When the 75 questions began it was the exact number of days before the opening of a New Year 2017, according to the Gregorian calendar. The countdown began and now there are 6 days until New Year (Monday – Sunday). As is customary, the remaining blog postings will ask you just one question. That question may inspire you, it may perplex you, it may anger you, it may be a catalyst for indelible change, or it may even tickle you.

The intent of all 75 questions is to probe, to prompt a reaction, to get you to stretch, to press beyond tradition or boundaries, to think broader, to break free, to face the fear, or liberate you by confirming what you already know for sure. You are only asked to respond each day with a thoughtful answer to the question.

Each question, ultimately, is to give you the intimate space to recover how to love yourself which universally expands and to allow you to love and live in harmony with others. You get to consider who you will be today and then pattern yourself to live that way.

These 75 question can precipitate change. The question is to be a inquiry into pathways of inner change that leaves you feeling more healthy, safe, in control, powerful, intrigued, and authentic.

When these awesome emotions are opened up within you (they already exist), you change and your world changes and the whole world changes with you.

Question 69: Who will you be today?

Miracle Monday

Just when you think it will never happen, your miracle comes!  What a liberating thought-to love and live with expectancy. Have hope, expect a miracle.

Something good is going to happen to you, especially for you, TODAY! Keep this declaration in your subconscious mind throughout the day each and every day.  This attitude of gracious acceptance with genuine gratitude for your miracle, whether large or small, elevates your consciousness and messages to the universe that you are ready. Ready to receive, ready to reciprocate, ready to live your purpose.

Each of us are born for a reason, that’s why we populate the earth; not to just breathe and take up space. Absolutely not, you have a sacred purpose. You have a one-of-a-kind imprint, a personal tattoo of purpose. You have an earthly assignment. So, on this Miracle Monday take time to reflect on your miracle mission.  Go back to the basic question WHY? Why am I here, why am I breathing, why am I a thinking, capable being, why was I created noble?

We all have a noble destiny…let me repeat that-we all have a noble destiny.

Pause and inculcate that truth – you have a noble destiny!

“Our destiny changes with our thoughts; we become what we wish to become, do

what we wish to do, when our habitual thoughts correspond with our desires.” ~Orison Swett Marden

If you are not connected – or need a reminder – with the inner awareness that you were created noble and have a destiny, let me suggest these simple connection steps.

  • Place your hand over your heart and say out loud – I am noble. I have a destiny.
  • Smile, see that sacred part of yourself deep within your being.
  • Feel the healing energy and peaceful vibrations from repeating again and again – I am noble. I have a destiny.
  • Trust the universe-trust yourself. Know, really have a solid, unshakable knowing, that you are noble and are on this earth to seek your destined place.
  • Write your declaration – I am noble and I have a destiny.  Then allow your feelings to be and write what you feel.
  • Create your miracle

You can create anything in your life, purposed for the highest good. All you have to do is pay close attention – and expect your purposed miracle.
