Boy, am I gonna have to figure out that multi-quote thing.

Devon, I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we enjoy your perspective. Sharing our stories is what inspires and empowers us! So it's not all about you, or me, or . . . . it's all about US!

Once you've written your favourite things list, complete each of the following sentences as many times as you can. Aim for at least 10 statements a day for each one.

1) I love myself because...

2) Love is...

We'll talk about Part Two in a week.

Oh, if you think it will help to have some accountability here, I'd be happy to give you my email address so you can share your lists with me privately!
How did I know this was going to be part of my *homework*?

Actually, when I was in my late 20s I met w/a women's group (awesome women!) and the facilitator had us say what came to mind when we filled in the blank Love is . . . .

I said, at that time, obligation.

I've come a way since then, but am looking forward to doing this again. It's been 12 years so I'm due.

And, ITA, you are (and will be ) an amazing coach!

'morning! :

I did read all of your posts, and you all - your growth and journeys are so inspiring! I can't possibly respond to it all, so I'm just gonna say HOORAY for lottery ticket Tuesday!

I can't wait to get mine, but it's going to be this evening, since I am without a car during the day today. I loved this quote from the 30-Day book that I read last night:

Allowing abundance is really a very simple thing. Since it flows to me at all times— all I have to do is let it in.

You know I have been thinking on and off about the lotto ticket but I didn't focus on it near as much as I should have this week. Think I should still buy it?

Everyone just keeps telling you stuff you already know. Why should this be any different?

Oh wow! Now I'm even more excited to see what comes up with you! PM me with your email address so I can be sure to chase you down!

Aw, thanks!

Celeste... LOVE that affirmation! I'm so jazzed to go get my ticket! Can't wait to see how much I win!!

I need to share the most amazing thing... Yesterday I got a gift in the mail from a friend. It's a silver necklace with an oval pendant that says (around the edges) "desire ask believe receive". It came with a note that just made my heart melt and my soul sing! I feel so BLESSED!! Oh, and another really great thing about it is that a couple days ago I asked for 'cool mail'. I couldn't have imagined how great that manifestation turned out to be!

You only have to ask once! I haven't been focusing on it at all! I just asked for a win, and then focused on being HAPPY and EXPECTING everything I ask for! Go get yourself a ticket!

Me too! I found a dollar on the ground by my car this morning, and was so thrilled! Isn't it cool to see beyond the random? This is my first time EVER buying a lottery ticket, btw! I don't even know how to do it!

That is COOL about the necklace! I'd been sticking with the simple request of a cup of coffee last week, and received 2 coupons for free coffee before I realized what was going on! Yesterday I asked for some flowers and told no one, and them my sister sent me an email saying that she was imagining me "surrounded with flowers".

here's one for catgirl and all of us who've been discussing spouses, again, from the 30-day book (emphases are mine, and I trimmed it a bit. It's the morning reading from Day 9):

What goes wrong with humans is they say, “I want WORLD peace.” And we say world peace is none of your business. Personal peace is. You can’t orchestrate world peace. The only way you could ever orchestrate world peace is if you could convince everyone to want exactly the same
thing. And you don’t have a prayer of doing that. There is no possibility of getting everyone to agree with you, you see..... It’s really a fine line who gets to decide who the bad guy is and who the good guy is. And always the good guy is you and the bad guy is them— and you all think that. So finally when you say, “I don’t have to figure it out for any of them. And I’m going to align with the energy of well-being and follow that path.” Then it gets easier for you to watch everyone else play out their games. ......The answer for her is: withdraw from the thought and live happily ever after. And it is our promise to her and generations that follow—YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY
ABOUT WHAT ANYONE ELSE IS DOING IF YOU ARE TAKING CARE OF YOUR OWN VIBRATION.
..... As an uplifter we hear the basis of these questions because you are a teacher to the very core of your being. And it’s not any easy thing to know what you know and to live a life that is stable and good-feeling and see others around you that have not figured it out or who cannot find their way. KNOWING YOUR WAY IS THE BEST POSSIBILITY OF THEM FINDING THEIR WAY.

anyway, it seemed relevant, so I thought I'd share.

I was going to say something about "it's too much, I don't have time for all this" but then I read today's Daily Groove
Quote:
:: Balance vs. Expansion ::

The "competition mindset" of our culture leads many
parents to put their individual desires and needs
first -- to the *exclusion* of their children's
desires and needs. Others go to the opposite extreme
of putting their children first while sacrificing
themselves.

Both extremes are unhealthy, so the majority of
parents try to find a *balance*. Each party makes some
sacrifices so that everyone can get some of what they
want.

But you're idealistic and don't want to compromise
when it comes to nurturing your children! Fortunately,
there's another choice: *expansion*, or as I like to
say, "getting bigger."

Smallness says, "My kids won't let me pursue my
interests; they want ALL my attention."

Bigness says, "Their must be a way we can all be
satisfied; I just don't see it yet."

Being open to yet unseen possibilities is what allows
you to expand. The question is: Are you willing to
let yourself be as big as you really are?
Now I'm : and don't know how to change my view while being so tired from a third night without sleep... How can I do anything without this nagging culpability feeling overshadowing everything?

Yes I know, I need rest and then my head will be clearer and I'll get my thinking skills back...

Toddler is restling with my hands so can't type anymore...
post #2153 of 2309
Oh I forgot, I've been trying to visualize $5 because each shirt I sell with my business gets me $5 (well sometimes 4 sometimes 6 but most of the time 5) and so I have been picturing that.
Well last night I was trying to declutter and organize some more to get ready for Treasure Mapping. I was going through old cards to date them and decide weather to keep or throw them out, and there was a $5 bill in one! LOL Well I guess that still counts. Cracked me up though.

I love that daily groove. Boy, today's is a good one!

I have just realized (thanks to a message from my inner being) that there WILL be time for me, it just doesn't always happen exactly WHEN I want it to. So, yes, dds come first, but NOT at the expense of mySELF. *Yet*, I have to remove mySELF from the picture if I really want to express love to dds fully. So, it is a balance.

Does this make any sense or am I just repeating what's already been posted?

To me, it's very simple, yet hard to get my mind around on a daily basis. This is exactly what I'm practicing now.
post #2155 of 2309
I hope you guys don't think I'm a total but I wanted to post the message I got from my Inner Spirit last night. (Hicks calls it INner Being but I think of it as the Holy Spirit so I'll call it IS.)

ME: Please teach me everything about love.

IS: You're not ready.

ME: How can I become ready?

IS: Remove your SELF.

: I know this is probably glaringly clear to some of you but it's confusing to me. Can anyone help? I don't get it.
post #2156 of 2309
This is rambly and sort of thinking out loud. Sorry in advance!

Last night in bed (as quiet as it gets - just my son snoring in my ear ) I asked "what do I want". And the answer came back "a baby". And that totally felt wrong because I don't want another baby. I don't feel it hormonally, or emotionally. Sometimes I get the "awww, a baby would be cute" but it's just sort of a thought, not a feeling, kwim? Sometimes when I'm ovulating I get wishy washy but seriously, it's no more than a few hours and I'm back to "nah, I'm done"

So I tried to be quiet and asked again and the answer came back "to create something". A HA! THAT felt good. Maybe "a baby" *to me* represents creation. The past few weeks I've been thinking I want to make something but I don't know what. Maybe "making a baby" is the one thing I know I can do so it's my default. So instead of creating a new human being because I'm bored : I need to figure out what I want to create.

I used to be very artistic when I was younger and that all fell away when I had kids. The past few weeks I've been thinking of this "how to draw" book I looked at once. The book really spoke to me but it was aimed at kids so since my daughter didn't like it I didn't pursue it (because everything is about them and I don't matter??? . I also keep thinking of the water color painting class I tried to take a year ago which I ended up not being able to take because it conflicted with a kid's birthday party. And the novella I wrote a year ago and haven't finished editing.

I tend to pick things up and then drop them for years and then come back to them again but I'm ok with that. That's just me What I'm not ok with is not having *anything* creative going on and that's where I am right now and have been for a really long time (the novella was an exception).

So I'm still not really sure *what* I want to do but since I've been thinking of it for weeks, I just called the library and asked them to track down the drawing book again (it was inter-library loan). That's a start at least. I *did* something
post #2157 of 2309
Shannon - good for you! That IS a great start! Now find another class you can sign up for and actually attend!

Isn't it awesome to be able to *hear* the message? It gets easier (and faster) with practice too!
post #2158 of 2309
shannon that is so wonderful!!! @ *instead of creating a human because I am bored* that cracked me up ---

I think that is a super realization though about what you want!! Remember, the *how* shows up out of the belief and commitment to the *what* and you definately do know what it is you want -- to unleash your creativity and have an outlet for it --

Follow that and the rest should be a piece of cake woman!

Congrats!

Maybe you are trying to "do" love, instead of "be" love?

Like maybe you are supposed to allow it to flow through you, rather than figure out what to do in order to be it.

We've all got set definitions of what's loving. Perhaps it's time to let those definitions go.
post #2160 of 2309
Shannon!! Congrats! What a big realization! I LOVE how you stayed with it and kept pushing deeper!

Have you read The Artist's Way? I'm reading it right now. It's amazing. Daily journaling...weekly artist dates!! SO inspiring.
