Week 4 has been very pivotal for me and a time when all the puzzle pieces are starting to come together. I’m allowing myself to enjoy these child-like exercises and I can feel myself letting go and enjoying the journey with a sense of discovery and wonder. Noticing colors and shapes as I am going about my day reminds me of a scavenger hunt that leads me closer and closer to my Dharma.
I look forward to my quiet sits and reading Haanel’s lessons as I focus on the power of “I” , my solar plexus, and REALLY believing that my inner world is creating my outer world, what I focus on GROWS, what I think about, I bring about.
I find myself protecting my peace at all costs and noticing that I am not reacting to events of my day like I used to. Often I found myself stopping, closing my eyes, and asking myself “what do I want to happen? what am I focusing on?” and immediately my mind shifts.
The best part of this week was the opportunities to drip some of this wisdom on my daughters as all three of them approached me with challenges they are having. They are hearing me say things such as “Your words have power.” “Focus on what you want to happen, not on what you are afraid will happen.” “Your thoughts create.”, etc. One of my daughters had a bleak moment turn into her desired result only an hour or two after I shared these golden nuggets, and this week my youngest shared a “Fearless Courage & Powerful Mindset” meditation link with me stating “you’d like this. You got me on mindset stuff now.”
If only I had that insight and wisdom at the tender age of 18! 🙂 I am so grateful that I not only can change the trajectory of my life, but also guide my daughters with polishing their Golden Child before more cement has a chance to dim their light.
