Hi guys! Today was my first morning journaling about my work with attraction. It was so incredibly satisfying.
My desire to wake up earlier without using an alarm clock (or trying to convince DH to do it
) is working wonderfully!
I did a dream evaluation, which is subtly different from dream analysis, basically evaluating what a dream tells me about where my vibration set point is at. It eventually told me that I'm doing extremely well within my current situation--but my inclination to hide has now become resistance which is keeping me from enormous joy, love, and ease. Hiding has sometimes been a useful way to shield myself, but now that I'm understanding more about working with my vibration deliberately, it's time to gradually
let that go.
And then I did some thinking about what my most current area is right now. I thought about finances, how it's really a combination of prosperity and organization--and organization is the one I have a lot of resistance on, prosperity is more okay. I didn't get that much further than that, though. I suppose it's organization & general capability. I made some major headway with that in my life, but it has still (up til now!
) been a loaded issue, so lots of success & lots of resistance existing side by side... has been kind of nutty at times!
I'm also really into enjoying
all of this! For a minute I was thinking "Wow, with all my issues, I have a lot of work to do" and feeling a tiny bit discouraged... then I remember how much fun it is to do all this and to transform, and how these desires & resistances give me the immense pleasure of the journey!
Conversations with DH about this stuff are ongoing. He's right in the middle of into it/not into it. He was much more accepting when I started out than I expected, which was a nice surprise! I think bottom line anything that makes me happier & more accomplished he's in favor of, he's mentioned before that he vastly prefers it when I'm happy. There's still some stuff we're working out, but he totally heard my request that he be more respectful about the new age aspect. (And I teased him about how he thinks he's above all that just because he calls it "New Aeon".) And, I saw afterwards how I was helping to bring out a lot of negativity from him with my expectations. So my work (positive expectations, wishes for healing) is totally clear. And I started out not at all wanting him to get into this but the more I reach a pure understanding about all this stuff (so to speak) the more I'm just immensely curious to find out what his desires really are! But if there's one thing I've learned it's that patience helps in our relationship. Especially since I'm in an intensive phase.
Oh another thought: Sometimes with gratitude lists I get really distracted, the good things are fun to think about, but I end up thinking about something else entirely (can be good, but not what I want here) and/or feeling positive but not strong gratitude/appreciation.
So what I've started doing when I want to be more focused is saying: "I enjoy and appreciate my current state/situation. I enjoy and appreciate the journey to my desire/fulfillment." And for me that's a lot more concentrated.

The "reckless" thing reminds me a lot of the "slap a happy face" Abraham-Hicks talk about. Specifically they say "Would you slap a happy face sticker on the gas gauge on your car, so that you wouldn't know when it was empty?"
Only I'm imagining that we have lots of gas gauges. One is for our overall energy, one is for prosperity, one is for health, one is for relationships... etc. It sounds like they can see the gauge for prosperity but they've got happy face stickers on all the other gauges.
Or maybe stickers that say in big letters, "Don't look here! Nothing to see here! Check prosperity instead!"
That also reminds me of how Abe says (yes I'm a groupie
) that our measure of success is the joy we feel. But a common mistake is to think that our measure of success is the money we have. After all money is pretty useful and nearly universal... but not as universal, useful and real
I agree, consider sending them a copy of "the secret"!

As PPs said, yes. This is what I'm doing with a certain important thing in my life.
I do try, when it comes up, to lightly and deliberately concentrate on the ultimate end result, associate it with good feelings... and then quickly move on. Anything else is thinking about the "how", and that's not necessary.

I think my signature now shows people that even though I don't have children, it doesn't mean my advice or thoughts should be taken any less lightly. Thoughts?
Have you checked out the Not Mamas Yet tribe
? It is a pretty happening tribe, and also some really wonderful love on there
Just read Devon's post briefly on the other thread... I'd say at least 2/3 are not TTC, many years away, but it's true that a lot of us love to talk about TTC anyway. I like it cause, among other reasons, I can talk about What I Will Do as if I'm giving birth in a week (I'm not even TTC) and don't have to feel silly at all... it's like the Virtual Reality game! (Okay, now I'm getting dorky about this loa stuff
) I'm not advertising, I swear, I'm just rambling.
Upon rereading what I wrote it occurrs to me that this might also be something where just changing your expectations so that you expect a positive response. After all did you know that sapphire_chan is a NMY?
