Week 13: The Power of Now

I am a little late in posting this blog.  Last week was a difficult week for me.  The bright spot of the past week was my belief in Christmas and also I was introduced to a book, “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.  In reading this short book it has brought all of the master key concept together in my mind.  The Now concept is that the focus that is important is Now, not the future not the past.  I have always thought that I had to figure out what was holding me back in life.  The past is the past and cannot be changed, but when you focus on the now there is no negativity.  Our past experiences come into play when it is needed within the now.  We do not need to waste any effort on that any longer.  I have spent too much time trying to figure out things from the past and will no longer to that.  The focus on Now is our connection to the divine presence and that is now my focus.  I now understand that the index cards, the shapes and colors, the affirmations, readings, repeating of our DMP, reading the “Greatest Salesman in the World.” and everything we have been learning over the past 12 weeks, is all about Now.  We do all of these things to bring us to this focus on Now.  Finally an answer to what I have been searching for.

History and the stories of our ancestors are the teachers that have gone before us.  I would like to think of the ancestors that moved around the world in search of a better life.  Leaving behind what they have always known and facing the unknown.  There are many stories of their faith and courage.  The followed their dreams and left their comfort zones behind.  I think we are doing the same in a different way.  Facing the unknown and leaving our comfort zones behind which takes faith, courage and perseverance.  We travel new ground on our journey.  This video is about a 15 year old girl,  leaving behind the world she has known and traveling to the unknown much like we are doing.  The difference is that we are looking within and our inner child is leaving the world we know and finding the world of the unknown, the universal answer to abundance.

The symbolism to me is Isle of Hope is our search for the law of attraction,  Isle of tears, our inhibitions that have held us back, Isle of Freedom is the achievement of finding our divine connetion,  Isle fears is the faith and courage we face to overcome our fears.

Have you ever wondered how the art of manifestation is different than the law of attraction? Here is a clip from my episode of Super Soul Sunday where I discuss this topic, as well as other concepts from my book, Wishes Fulfilled.


I Am Worthy

Th biggest challenge that I have is being on the receiving end of any form of gift, whether it be a compliment, gratitude from another, the universal gift of abundance.  I have found the following statement from Dr. Wayne Dyer that I find that I can relate to.  There are a number of reasons a to why I have felt unworthy, but I know now that that thought process was wrong.  My work ahead is to change that thought process.  I will persist and succeed.

By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

You Are Worthy.

Have you ever tried to pay someone a compliment and seen them embarrassed, confused, or even somewhat irked at your offering of kindness, love, and admiration? Or maybe, you have been on the receiving end and found yourself uncomfortable and unable to respond with gratitude and grace. This everyday example of the difficulties that can arise when we are offered a gift reveals one of the important principles of learning how to receive the abundance that the Universe holds for us. In order to manifest, to take part in the process of co-creating your life and attracting to yourself the objects of your heart’s desires, you must know that you are worthy of receiving. Manifesting involves using the power of your inner world to craft a fuller relationship with life. You can remind yourself all day long that the same power that brought anything into the physical world also brought you, but if you do not feel worthy, you will disrupt the natural flow of energy into your life and create a blockage that makes manifestation impossible. Remember that you are worthy of abundance. Feeling worthy of any blessings or desires is a feature of your inner life. Here are the major perceptions of those who know they are worthy and deserving of all of God’s blessings:

My self-esteem comes from myself. (As a child of God, my worthiness is a given.)

I accept myself without complaint and without conditions.

I take full responsibility for my life and what it is and is not. (I blame no one.)

I do not choose to accept guilt into my life. (I live in the present moment.)

I understand the importance of having harmony between my thoughts, my feelings, and my behavior. (This harmony translates into peace and contentment.)

There is nothing your highest self wants more than peace. This peace makes you feel worthy of all of the richest blessings of the Universe, and when you radiate this out into the world, it is returned to you without fail.

The video I chose for week 11 is from the scroll we are now reading in “the Greatest Salesman in the World.”  I have added this to me reading when I work on my computer.  I take the few minutes to watch and listen.  It is relaxing and also and reinforces this teaching.  I am including another video of a person that persisted and succeed, but in doing so had to face his fears.  He shows in incredible talent that would have never been shared if he had not faced his fears.  We all have talents to share.  We need to overcome the fears that hold us back and share our talents with the world.  In letting our inner self show there is the immeasurable happiness that we can experience.  Let the light shine through.

By Dr. Wayne Dyer

One of the most important decisions you’ll ever make is choosing the kind of universe you exist in: is it helpful and supportive or hostile and unsupportive? Your answer to this question will make all the difference in terms of how you live your life and what kind of Divine assistance you attract.

Remember that you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. So if you believe that this is an unfriendly universe, you’ll look for examples to support this point of view. You’ll anticipate people attempting to cheat, judge, take advantage of, and otherwise harm you. You’ll blame the antagonistic, inhospitable cosmos for not cooperating with you in the fulfillment of your desires. You’ll point the finger at belligerent people and bad luck for the kind of world we all live in.

I implore you to see the universe as a warm and supportive one because you’ll look for evidence to support this view. When you anticipate that the universe is friendly, you see friendly people. You look for circumstances to work in your favor. You anticipate good fortune flowing into your life.

My favorite affirmation when I feel stuck or out of sorts is: Whatever I need is already here, and it is all for my highest good. Jot this down and post it conspicuously throughout your home, on the dashboard of your car, at your office, on your microwave oven, and even in front of your toilets! Remind yourself: I live in a friendly universe that will support any thing or desire that is aligned with the universal Source of all.

I’ve found that by shifting my belief about the nature of the universe, I attract whatever I desire into my life. I desire love. I desire peace. I desire health. I desire happiness. I desire prosperity. When I pray, I do so in the spirit of Saint Francis, who beseeched God to “make me an instrument of your peace.” In other words, “Let me be like the Source from which I originated, and then I will rest in the knowing that my desires must be here, on their way, and for my highest good.”

The past few weeks we have been reforming our thought process to create the mind set to accept the abundance and prosperity that is available to us through universal law. There’s a unique thing that happens when people put their beliefs and minds in a single unified direction.  We are working on some our personal idea that TRANSFORM how we build our dreams on both a personal and business mindset.  The video that I have chosen for this week covers a lot of what we are learning in MKMMA.  It touches on all the areas we have covered over the last 10 weeks.  It is something I am going to add to my daily routine along with what we are already doing. Additional reaffirming the power within with the universal law of attraction.
