Week 21 – Shhhhhh I have a secret!

Shhhh it's a secret

“The real secret of power is consciousness of power…”

We bring forth what we’re conscious of… whoa! Now I see why it has it been hammered into us to control our thoughts… to have clear vision of WHAT we want, down to the scents and our surrounding.

“whatever we become conscious of, is invariably manifested in the objective world, is brought forth into tangible expression….we think is what is created or produced in the objective world….our lives are simply the reflection of our predominant thoughts…”

It’s no wonder why this is so difficult for us to master this… anything worth getting doesn’t come easy.  How true is this!  This isn’t a one-time thing we can do and get right away… we have to continuously work on it and then when we think we’ve got it down… practice even more.

Feeling combined with thought… why have I been sooo resistant to combining FEELING with my DMP and readings? I have fought this and feel dumb when I try to do it.  I justify it by the fact that we have 8 people living in my little home of 1,400 square feet but it goes deeper than that… I am ready to give in and do it…do it now…do it now…do it now!

I will persist until I succeed!

Week 20 – Stay Connected!

Screen shot 2015-02-20 at 11.39.26 PM

What struck me most this week is the realization that we have to stay connected to our life source to tap into and be ONE with it’s energy.  For me, that’s God.  I have always “known” this to be true, but didn’t realize that much of that is in relation not to what I “do” but what I “think”.

Whatever we connect with and become one with, the more we become like it – we become ONE with it.  But it is true that we find ourselves trying to use our own source of power or willpower… That can only lead to one thing…failure and lack of power.

What a relief to realize that I don’t have to rely on myself to tap into my main power source, but that I can just become one with the power source that’s already within me – the ultimate power source who’s energy never dies or loses strength.

I have to wonder why once we have this knowledge that we eventually pull away from this source and try again to do things on our own? Our old blueprints – doing what’s familiar? It seems so simple, yet the practice of it is far more intense and takes just that practice.

“Every time you think you start a train of causation which will create a condition in strict accordance with the quality of the thought which originated it.”

This sentence is powerful! Stay connected to the source of all power – by doing so, we will keep our thoughts constructive and in line with His will and purpose, instead of veering off into the wilderness we create!

“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.   Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.  But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” ~ John 15:4-7 NLT

Week 19 – Silence is Golden!

Screen shot 2015-02-20 at 10.42.45 PM

Ahhhh I was reminded how much I struggled with this lesson the first time.  The second time around was met with the same difficulty.  Is it my subby in resistance?

I mentioned this in the last lesson, but it’s a clear message that I got the first time around, continued to get and am getting the second time around… our outward life is an expression of our inward.

“Thought is a cause – Conditions are effects.”

I am recognizing this now much faster than ever.  I don’t believe I ever noticed the consequences of my thoughts as much as I do now.  Perhaps its the fact that I have this knowledge…that I am aware of my thoughts more so than ever and can see when I find myself relying on my old blueprint – the same negative consequences emerge…  Now that IS a powerhouse realization!

This section touched me most once again.

“…if your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business, and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical,  destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry, and nervousness, in your finances as lack and limitation and in discordant conditions in your environment.”

It reminds me what I share over and over with my Health and Fitness Coaching…Garbage in…Garbage out.  If we take garbage in our bodies, we suffer the consequences of feeling and well looking like “garbage”.  Why is it that we fuel our bodies with so much garbage? But, now, as I look at this very same knowledge that I already have and apply it to our minds – holy smokes! I’ve been fueling my mind with way too much trash.  There are so many sources that can allow it to sneak in.  I don’t watch TV, but what about the social media news feed, etc. We can’t feed our minds with negativity and expect to see positive results in our lives…period.  This is why the exercise this week is so critical.  We need to learn to control WHAT we let our minds think about and what we let into it – just as we keep our food clean – we need to be intentional with our thoughts and what we allow to creep in.

What I am realizing is that we need to STOP and have complete quiet and down time to HEAR… If you’re a spiritual person, we need this quiet time to hear God’s voice and what He’s sharing with us.  I noticed that I always have something going on…talking on the phone, people talking to me or me to them or if none of that then music going or personal development audio.

Silence truly IS golden.  Stop, think and then listen! This gives FOCUS a whole new meaning and realm.  It’s in this silence that we can build our powerhouse thoughts and design of our lives.

Week 18 – Law of Attraction – Garbage In…Garbage Out

Screen Shot 2015-02-15 at 9.50.39 PM

I had a new insight from this week’s lesson that I didn’t experience the first time around… We attract to us what we are WITHIN us… like attracts like… I am amazed that it has taken me almost 50 years to get this… (I will be 50 in June).  We’ve heard the term that opposites attract… but I honestly don’t believe in that any longer.  I realize that we “think” we’re attracting the opposite but the reality is that what we’re attracting is what we are within ourselves…perhaps deep in our subby… but it’s not opposite…it’s simply us in disguise or in denial.

In my industry, we spend most of our time and efforts controlling precisely what we put IN our bodies.  Not only so, but we counsel many many people about this as well.  Why is it that we don’t give the same care and attention to what we allow in our thoughts and hearts? Just as we wouldn’t put Arco gas in our lamborghini…why are we putting total garbage in our heads?

We will reap what we sow – don’t sow garbage because garbage in is garbage out!

Keep it positive AND intentional!

Week 17 – Be Intentional and Persistent!

Life - Eliminate Lack by focusing on abundance

 

I am once again amazed at how I continuously get bombard with the same message over and over from difference sources.  Clearly, it’s a message I need to hear more than once! Uncle…Uncle… I get it! Two things hit me again.  First, we can only get what we GIVE.  But, we can’t give to get…  More particularly, we can only give what we HAVE to give.  This hit home the first time around and it hit me again.  My struggle is what is it that I have to give… but then again, I have to keep asking myself THAT question, “What am I pretending not to know?”  I am beginning to think that deep down… I don’t think what “I” have to give is enough, or in essence “I am not enough.”  Whoa… hold the phone! I didn’t realize that was really still in me!  I repeat over and over in my health and fitness coaching and to my women’s only group especially that we are enough! Perhaps deep down I also have the sense of lack in this area.  I am enough.  I have my unique gifts that God has given me…not for me to hoard them for myself but for the benefit of sharing them with others.  I finally feel like I am beginning to find myself and my special gifts that only I can give. BUT, this is a big BUT here… I have to focus on giving to give… not for selfish reasons or more specifically for recognition with my business.  When I focus on what I can give and how I can truly help improve someone’s life for the better, then success comes easily.  However, when I focus on getting “points” or other selfish ambitions – I fail…every time.  I am glad I failed…because it just gives proof that we can only get what we give! I am blessed for this insight because it just gives more purpose and meaning behind what I do and why I am doing it.  Thank you for the reminder!

Hit between the eyes number two, if we focus on lack…we will experience more of it.  Helloooooooo McFly…we we focus on grows! My goodness…I thought I had this figured out the first time around, but here I am again, laying flat on my back just having bit hit between the eyes AGAIN… just another “uncle…uncle” moment.  I get it! Finally!  I control what I CHOOSE to think about… I am enough… I have enough… I have already receiveD it all… It’s mine – the victory is mine and I am walking in it!

*BAM*

Week 16 – Choose Wisely

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 12.22.35 PM

This weeks lesson speaks about creating our own destiny with our thoughts guiding the way and not leaving our life to fall upon “chance”.

From a Christian perspective,  nothing happens to us by chance anyway.  Every single step we have taken or will ever take has been pre-determined by God.  However, he gave us the will to CHOOSE.  It’s here that lies our challenge – what will we choose?  Will we choose to succumb to our old blue print…the learned behaviors and way of thinking that we were taught or forced to go with because of our lack of knowledge or experiences? Or, will we choose to let God transform us?

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” ~ Romans 12:2 NLT

I beg to differ that “good and evil are not entities.” This is where I have to rely on the truth as given to me in God’s Word.  God is the source of good and the devil is source of evil…plain and simple.  They ARE entities and are both very much ALIVE.  Our battle is not with flesh and blood, but the battle does exist:

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” ~ Ephesians 6:12 NLT

This battle has already been won.  It’s a done deal… Now, we just need to claim that victory in our lives!

However, the challenge that we face IS what we choose to partner with.  We cannot always control the thoughts that come into our minds as that is the main source and tool that the devil uses to create evil in our lives.  But, we can choose to not partner with the negative thoughts.  We can choose to reject any given thought and think about God instead – just as the Law of Substitution suggests.

This is where what we’re learning here is so crucial.  We cannot always control the thoughts that come into our minds, but we CAN control whether or not to let them stay there and partner with them.  What we think about grows, so keep it positive and on the things of good and of God.  We will reap what we sow.

I appreciate in the lesson that we cannot let our imagine run amuck… it is a good servant but a poor master.  I can see more clearly that there is a difference between our imagination and controlling our thoughts in such a way that we can direct it as an already accomplished fact! Just as Mark 11:24 says – ReceiveD!

Weeks 15 – Wait the Makeover began… why am I am still stuck on Kindness?

Confession time… I’ve said this one too many times this go around.  But, I’ve been horribly sick over and over.  I have Fibromyalgia and for some reason I am not sure why – it’s stepped up 10 notches the past few months.  I refuse to let it hold me down and I deal with the constant pain, but it’s the constant sickness that kicks my rear.  I am behind on everything… scrambling to stay on top of my two full-time jobs, mother of 5 duties, and oh yeah – I am a wife! lol! Honestly, I was going to email the powers that be and say that I was going to quit this go around as I am so behind.  But, I just can’t seem to let myself do that.  But I DO have to ask for your forgiveness for failing to keep up my part of masterminding and reading and commenting on all your beautiful blogs! No excuses and I am not seeking empathy but I am just being transparent and truthful.

I am pressing forward! I love this weeks lesson and it’s incredible how it goes along with this months scroll.  It’s funny how each lesson gets embedded in my brain, I see the message in many other areas of my life.  I am unique.  That’s powerful! In my passion/industry I used to find myself copying others and trying to do what they were doing to have success – I still find myself searching but then looking within and realizing that I can only give what I have to give – I am beautifully unique and I have special gifts that God’s given me and THAT’s what I have to give.  It’s both empowering and a huge relief! I can just be me and let God use ME for what he chooses!

I loved giving kindness and looking for it.. and I have to admit that I am still stuck on that! I try to live that way daily but when I was walking LOOKING for it – how much more did I see it, as well as opportunities to give.  I want to continue to do this daily.

My makeover word this week was well organized.  It’s incredible that I so happened to have a huge dumpster this week to empty out the garbage from my garage… I was sick but still had to get it done and by golly I did.  I also began to organize my Instagram… and noticed organization everywhere… It’s amazing what we can see when we’re looking for it!

Okay, no excuses… I am putting one foot in front of the other…

“When we see the invisible, we can do the impossible.”

 Fitness - genetics is not an excuse
