ok you guys aren't very chatty this evening. So what did everyone do today?
After my nap dh and I went and ran some errands, went out to lunch and then the grocery store. Then we watched the documentary The Giant Buddhas. Then I came here to hang out for awhile.
I keep thinking back to what Beckwith said in the movie. 'We live in a universe of laws. There's the law of gravity. If you fall off a cliff, whether you're a good person or a bad person, you're going to hit the ground' (I'm paraphrasing here and this isn't exactly what he said).
I believe in the law of gravity. I also believe that food allergies and intolerances and genetic predispositions are actual, physical things we have to deal with, just like gravity. I think how we face them, mentally, matters but I don't feel/believe that I can just manifest my issues gone. Maybe someone who believes in the LOA enough can manifest the disappearance of a food allergy or, for all I know, manifest not hitting the ground when they fall off a cliff I can accept that others think this is possible and that maybe it's not possible for me because of where I am mentally. But . . . that's where I am I do want to use the LOA with what I am doing though.
I was thinking of it tonight and I feel far more positive about this than negative. There is a tiny bit of me that is sad over the loss of gluten foods but most of me is excited and hopeful and totally up for it And, as someone mentioned, I am already focusing on what I can eat instead of what I can't. I have been thinking of all the foods I already enjoy that don't have gluten and it turns out there's quite a list!
Oh, and I'm totally buzzing tonight, I used REACH tonight and it was like a miracle! I lost some stuff a few days ago and dh was trying to help me find it tonight. He found the beads I wanted but I still couldn't find the elastic bead string. Finally, I shut my eyes, said REACH in my head and (on a whim) threw my hands up in the air. I visualized my hand closing over the package of bead string and I also shut my right hand as if I was grabbing it. I opened my eyes and my hands just went to the second drawer of the art cabinet. I was disappointed for a moment because I had already checked the art cabinet numerous times the other day and the string wasn't in there, but I went with what my hands were doing and opened it up. Not making this up - the package of string was right there! On top, not obscured by anything! OMG I was SO high with buzzing after that,
And then I sat with my stuff and made the bracelet I've had in mind for a week. I took some alphabet beads and spelled out "thank you" with some hearts and a bunch of pretty turquoise beads along with it. I love it My intention was that every time I looked at it I would be reminded to say "thank you" for something and it works! I was walking the dog, listening to some music on the walkman and looked down and saw it. So I said "Thank you for Aretha Franklin" as if her music was a gift from the universe just for me. And maybe it was
