Practice makes perfect
Week 6 finds me a little off my game, physically and mentally. Monday had me thinking of quitting just for a brief moment but I used one of the 7 Laws of the Mind. The Law of Dual Thought and immediately thought out loud and said,” Norina Lelii you are not giving up on yourself get that thought out of your head.” and bam it was gone! Hasn’t been back since. Also in the same day as I was putting the dishes away a though crossed my mind, “do a sit” so I put down what I was doing and did a sit, I actually listened to myself for a change. The first thing that popped in to my thoughts was an opportunity that was brought to me and I’m not sure if I want to go that route and I even imagined getting my family together to it, but I think I need another sit on it. I’ve been practicing bringing all 7 Laws of the Mind in to my life. Some are conscious efforts like the Law of Substitution when a negative thoughts enter your mind you try to think of something pleasant instead it seems to be happening naturally. I’m not perfect but is a great start and I’m proud of that. I’m definitely noticing that I’m more relaxed and less stressed. Not all the time but I’m definitely improving on it. Since I’m practicing I’ve got that covered even when I don’t realize that I am doing it. I’m manifesting and linking with my shapes and doing my lessons and sits so I can see my self growing. I’m even sitting with Law of Forgiveness and I believe in time that I will eventually be able to forgive all. This week started off if it could go wrong it did. With me I swear it’s a full moon thing. Little things where happening and then I fell off a ladder but on the positive side to that was, if my car was not parked in the garage area, one I would have broken my screen door and two I could have done more damage to an old beat up back. In stead I got banked up but I stood up and bounced off the car instead of falling backwards and smashing my head. I took care of myself didn’t go for any pharmacy drugs and used CBD oil instead. If I wasn’t on a new healthy lifestyle I would be in more pain and my recovery would take longer. So I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful in that I can see myself getting healthy not just my weight, every sit before I start my lesson I ask my mind to relax and release the pain, per Davene suggestions.
Power of thought
Lesson 6.21 Hannel says, ” So with the power of thought; let power be dissipated by scattering the thought from one object to another, and no result is apparent; but focus this power through attention or concentration on any single purpose for any length of time and nothing becomes impossible. This is where I’m having a hardship in that I can’t see where I want my future to be I’m having a hard time focusing on the happiness I desire, I wonder if it’s because when at times when I felt truly happy it was short-lived. I have a beginning of what I want to happen and with whom but then I lose focus and my mind wonders and im at the beginning again. Have to sit on this block and push through it.
The week 6 sit exercise was to look at a picture for at least 10 mins and try to capture that image in your mind with a mental image of the picture. Before I did the sit Hannel suggested pick a single object and concentrate our attention on a definite purpose for 10 minutes, he said you cannot do it, that your mind would wander a dozen times and you would have to keep bringing your thought back to the original purpose. Haha of course he was right. Lol. I had no problem capturing a mental picture and when I wasn’t sitting I was able to capture a mental picture of a coworker who I have not seen in over 25 years. I don’t know why she popped in to my mind but it was crazy how I could see the color of her shirt the expressions she would make with her eyes and that big smile she had. I could even see the color lipstick she was wearing. It was a bizarre occurrence. I’m sure there will be a link somewhere in the future.
In conclusion I know I have a lot of work to do on my self, it’s not going to happen over night and that’s ok with me. Look how long it took me to get this point, not over night! What matters is that I’m learning, I’m living, I’m growing and I’m not lonely in this quest for a new way of life. Even though we live all around the world we all have one thing in common, we want change. MKE found us for a reason. We are all damaged, in some form or another, we all handle it in different ways, we all want the same thing to chip away at our cement and anytime we find that link or push though that mental block of fear more pieces fall to our feet and glimmers of gold squeak out. We want to have faith and believe that we will find what we truly desire and treat it with the respect and love that we deserve. We all want our Gold to shine through not just glimmers of it.
I looked in the mirror after I read the poem I can honestly say I’m at 85 to 90% of what I’m doing but I’m getting better I’m still here trying. I looked in the mirror and repeated I love myself. I can’t wait until I feel the power of those words.
Love to all and believing in all of us finding our Golden Buddha’s
Peace and blessings Norina
Be kind to Mother Nature 😊
