No time to post now, but I'm psyched to be on the FIRST PAGE of this thread!!!

I have a 'weekly challenge' for everyone! This is guaranteed to make you feel better about you, and therefore better about how everyone else feels about you! (Which is only ever a reflection of how you feel about yourself anyway, right?!) This is inspired by Denise Coates, author of Feel it Real. Great woman, fantastic book!

Pull out a notebook (or open a Word document!) and at the top of the page write 'What I love about me.' Every day for the next week, write as many things as you can that you love about yourself. Write AT LEAST five things a day. It might seem hard at first as many of us are not used to self-appreciation. But don't worry - the more wonderful things you find, the more wonderful things you'll find! LoA in action. After day one, you might find it helpful/inspiring to start by reading your list to-date.

Remember, the 'smallest' thing at all is worthy of writing down... For example, "I love the shape of my lips" or "I love that I bake fantastic chocolate chip cookies". You could even start with "I love that I am giving myself this gift of self-appreciation."

Have fun, and don't forget to post at the end of the week and say how it went!

'morning, mamas!

Catgirl! Where had you disappeared to? I missed ya!

As for those of us who have up until now struggled with jealousy, etc, I have found that affirmations really help, and gratitude journaling helps EVEN MORE! Joy trumps my feelings of being left out any day.

I'm so sleepy this morning! I got etsy on my brain last night and couldn't sleep for all the ideas that were knocking around in my mind! :

i'm trying to think of my intentions for the week, but all I can focus on is another sip of coffee. bbl!

HEY MAMAS!

Melanie -- what a great exercise!!! I did that once -- actually came up with about 20 things! -- and it does feel great. I'll do it again this week-- what a beautiful idea!!

Thanks Billie-Jo for telling me about your book and seeing energy! Very validating -- and I'm going to keep trying to see energy between my hands (mostly I'm just seeing double, so like 10 fingers. ). Thanks, Annikate and Apryl for your feedback, too!

I hope darwinphish makes it over to this new thread -- she's on fire with manifestation!!!

I think about some of the mamas we haven't seen recently -- anyone heard from Kundalini Mama???

Have a beautiful morning, everyone!

that's a great idea! and i just started doing something like this with my daughter during our bedtime routine. before we go to sleep, we talk about 3 things that made us happy that day. just two days ago, we started adding 3 things that we like about ourselves. and now we are adding people we want to send our love to. my daughter has really taken to this and she is the one who reminds me when i forget. it's a lovely way to fall asleep.

B, I just love that! Actually, I'm thinking of making a rosary bead type thing to incorporate a bedtime ritual similar to what you're doing with your Grandma's rosary. Hmmm... I think I'll use various gemstones to represent different things/people and then we can use those as 'counting beads' to go through our daily process. Oh man, this is going to be so much fun!! Thank you for the inspiration!

ETA: Does anyone remember daughters/family pride rings? (Maybe they still have these, not sure.) How cool to make family pride appreciation necklaces, with stones for each family member. What do I appreciate about Daddy, Mama, myself, my brother... This is what I'm going to do!

DD made her prayer beads at school with pipecleaners and beads. i saw they have them at the dollar store. so if your DD wants to make one, that's a nice and easy way for her to make one for herself. i've never been a really creative, crafty person before, but i am really appreciating it now. putting all your creation and creativity into something makes it even more special.

Hi girls!

I'm thrilled to begin another week.

Manifesting for this week:
-Fun
-Being in the moment
-Appreciate nature
-Celebrate every day
-Listening & following my intuition

I love the exercise, Koala. My favorite thread in single parenting was one where we all listed what made us fabulous. I got such an energy boost from reading it and writing my own post! I am excited to participate in your weekly challenge!!!

I love this idea! I think I could use some self love.

My intentions for the week:

1. I am focused and productive at work. Writing comes easily and naturally, my words flow.

2. My marriage is strong and healthy. I love and appreciate dh for all the he is and does. I am sexy and so is he!

3. I have fun everyday! Fun, fun and MORE fun!

4. There is beauty and abundance in my life. I am blessed to have so much!

I will probably include additional sets of three beads for aspects of our community and/or extended family. Basically just beads for extra appreciation that we can use to focus on anything else around us as we're inclined. Then I'd like to start a daily ritual of working with the beads to appreciate how blessed we are. I'll let you know how it turns out! (This is all inspired by what Billie-Jo is already doing, which you can read about in her posts above.)

your wish is my command!

I can't remember who asked, but I did it - I got myself a business signature! It was a big leap somehow, paying for that, isn't that funny? See my avatar? It's my logo! My sister designed it for me.

I'm working on the bamboovillage.org site this morning, though I'm no web designer. It's very slow-going and doesn't look too great YET! Any suggestions would be SO warmly welcome. : I'm embarassed to even link to it, but if I don't the time will continue to pass without doing anything.

Time for breakfast!

darwinphish
I am tickled at your big manifestations!!! That's such a fantastic series of events!

KoalaMama
I love, love, love your opening post for this week!! It's lovely! I'll find time each day to think of wonderful things of myself...yes.

About the prayer beads
A few years ago I made a very small set of prayer beads that were intended to be universal in nature. It had about 5-7 beads, an angel bead, and a cross (of course, you could put something else other than the cross...like simply a bigger focal bead). I'll see if I can find the prayers and maybe post them here for anyone that's looking for a "starting point"?

My intentions this week:
To really accept that I can make a living giving readings. (there's too many thoughts behind this....)

To also trust that we can get a mortgage (or the actual money) for the house we're aiming for. And that the owners will accept it gracefully.
That we get the mortgage started this week....that it's positive and comes with positive results.

For Everyone:
Keep Shinin'!!!

then last week, my daughter came home from school with some little "prayer beads" she made at school. i was very touched by this. i'm meaning to make another blog post about it.

i just went back to find darwinphish's post about her non-profit, and WOW - I'm definitely taking notes! AMAZING work - and it just goes to show, even when we aren't feeling it, we can still manifest WONDERFUL, EXPANSIVE things.

thanks for sharing your story! can't wait to hear more. are you blogging about it?
KoalaMama's Avatar KoalaMama 12:56 PM 04-08-2007

Ok, I've been stalking darwinphish. And found this list of intentions from 1-02-07.

darwinphish's Avatar darwinphish 02:15 PM 04-08-2007
OK, OK, I'm here!!! I'm going to try and keep up this time! Hopefully with my new burst of energy that won't be such a challenge.

Celeste, I so wish I had the inclination to blog about, well, anything! I can write an essay or journal article like nobody's business but when I try to chronicle day-to-day I just come up blank. It's the same story as trying to keep a journal - tried a couple times and they end up largely blank. I'm in awe of the bloggers of the Universe!

Anyway, you can read a bit about what we're doing here:

Full Circle Farm

I'm actually in the process of getting the website revamped (ideas welcome!) and was thinking of including a blog done by our new garden manager, who blogs his home gardening endeavors beautifully.

It's a nonprofit, educational organic farm that's going to be on 11 acres of school land in an urban, largely low-income district in the Bay Area. The land is basically donated to us by the District but the funds for getting started are up to, well... me.

I never, ever would have imagined something like this coming to me! It's both an incredible blessing, and more than a tiny bit stressful. I'm trying to keep enjoying it even though there are a lot of complicated steps to making it happen. I'm back to a place where I can TRUST that this will happen with ease. Of course the 100K doesn't hurt.

I'm going to try your exercize, KoalaMama. I DO have the time to stop and appreciate myself!

Melanie! (KoalaMama) I got the video yesterday! Thank you I haven't watched it yet but maybe when we get back from the inlaws I'll sit down and pop it in Thank you so much!

Ooooo, good idea

Celesterra, I love your etsy shop

Ok, now I'm wondering how many other LOA type etsy things there are I don't have a shop yet but yeah, some of my ideas are LOA and switch word inspired Does anyone else have any shops or other websites to share? We can link to a business site in a post right?

Darwinphish that is really cool

I realized last night I need to establish some routines for this LOA stuff. I'm feeling GREAT right now but, as Bill Harris said in one of his interviews, I think I'm mostly on auto-pilot right. I am manifesting some of this, yes, but not totally on purpose. I've especially noticed that my giving thanks and blessing food and all that is sort of haphazard. I do it when I think of it which sometimes means often and sometimes means not at all.

I was thinking of Flylady. I was on her system years ago. The one thing that totally stuck was making my bed. I get up in the morning and I make my bed like clockwork. I don't even have to think about it, I just do it. It's just become automatic. I need to do that with my LOA stuff. I need to link it to something so that it becomes second nature. The problem is that it's hard because I'm not much of a routine/scheduled kind of gal. Waking up and going to sleep are about my only definites
WuWei's Avatar WuWei 03:10 PM 04-08-2007
This is the OSHO Tarot card that I turned today.
Quote:

67. Rebirth

http://www.osho.com/magazine/tarot/p...068Rebirth.jpg

Rebirth
In Zen you are coming from nowhere and you are going to nowhere. You are just now, here, neither coming nor going. Everything passes by you; your consciousness reflects it but it does not get identified. When a lion roars in front of a mirror, do you think the mirror roars? Or when the lion is gone and a child comes dancing, the mirror completely forgets about the lion and starts dancing with the child--do you think the mirror dances with the child? The mirror does nothing, it simply reflects. Your consciousness is only a mirror. Neither do you come, nor do you go. Things come and go. You become young, you become old; you are alive, you are dead. All these states are simply reflections in an eternal pool of consciousness.

Osho Osho Live Zen, Volume, 2 Chapter 16
Commentary: This card depicts the evolution of consciousness as it is described by Friedrich Nietzsche in his book, Thus Spake Zarathustra. He speaks of the three levels of Camel, Lion and Child. The camel is sleepy, dull, self-satisfied. He lives in delusion, thinking he's a mountain peak, but really he is so concerned with others' opinions that he hardly has any energy of his own. Emerging from the camel is the lion. When we realize we've been missing life, we start saying no to the demands of others. We move out of the crowd, alone and proud, roaring our truth. But this is not the end. Finally the child emerges, neither acquiescent nor rebellious, but innocent and spontaneous and true to his own being. Whatever the space you're in right now--sleepy and depressed, or roaring and rebellious--be aware that it will evolve into something new if you allow it. It is a time of growth and change.

WuWei's Avatar WuWei 03:18 PM 04-08-2007
Ok, there are no co-incidences, of course. Melanie's question was "'What I love about me". This Tarot card is about "I Celebrate Myself". It is depict as "what one needs to understand".

Quote:
77. We Are The World


http://www.osho.com/magazine/tarot/p...reTheWorld.jpg We Are The World
When thousands and thousands of people around the earth are celebrating, singing, dancing, ecstatic, drunk with the divine, there is no possibility of any global suicide. With such festivity and with such laughter, with such sanity and health, with such naturalness and spontaneity, how can there be a war?... Life has been given to you to create, and to rejoice, and to celebrate. When you cry and weep, when you are miserable, you are alone. When you celebrate, the whole existence participates with you. Only in celebration do we meet the ultimate, the eternal. Only in celebration do we go beyond the circle of birth and death.

Osho I Celebrate Myself Chapter 4
Commentary: Humanity is depicted here as a rainbow of beings, dancing around the mandala of the earth with their hands joined together in joy and gratitude for the gift of life. This card represents a time of communication, of sharing the riches that each of us brings to the whole. There is no clinging here, no grasping. It is a circle without fear of feelings of inferiority and superiority. When we recognize the common source of our humanity, the common origins of our dreams and longings, our hopes and fears, we are able to see that we are all joined together in the great miracle of existence. When we can combine our tremendous inner wealth to create a treasure of love and wisdom that is available to all, we are linked together in the exquisite pattern of eternal creation.

I am all over this idea ladies!! I'd really like to hear how yours develop. I think it is so beautiful. IM - I think your Grandma will be proud. Look how her life is impacting us. People she never even knew. That is just so cool.

I posted in one of the other threads about feeling spiritually lonely. But LOOK!! I do have a community. I am grateful that I live in a time that enables this type of connection.

You all are getting a bead!

My daughters made something similiar at Bible school to help them remember Jesus' story. I'd really like to incorporate parts of that into our gratitude beads.

AND if you have a Hobby Lobby close, jewelery making supplies are on sale next week 30% off. Swarvsky crystal beads here I come!
whimsy's Avatar whimsy 03:33 PM 04-08-2007
I was listening to MCAL's boyfriend this morning and he was saying something about the LoA being one of 7 universal laws.

What are the other six?

I found these
Law of Attraction (LoA): Thoughts Manifest Reality
Law of Energy (LoE): Attention Directs Energy.
Law of Power (LoP): All Power Originates Within
Law of Freedom (LoF): Anything is Possible.
Law of Now (LoN): Now Is The Only Time You Can Do Anything.
Law of Love (LoL): Love Is Happiness
Law of Truth (LoT): Effectiveness Is the Measure of Truth

but they aren't the ones he was talking about.

Something with polarity. I am fascinated and want to learn more!
