week 20 Choosing Love every day not just Valentine’s Day

In the era of Facebook and Instagram, there’s so much pressure when it comes to pulling out all the stops while popping the question.

Utube videos  where the bride is surprised by a flash mob, as hundreds of people sing in harmony while also performing elaborate choreography. Oh, and it’s all conveniently captured from four different camera angles and spliced together in a film that racks up millions of views and goes viral!

But all of this “high bar” setting can slowly start to set up a false notion of what romance is. So can elaborate weddings and over-the-top honeymoons.

True love isn’t a man who will race through the rain down a crowded city street to passionately embrace his wife, beseeching her to return after a lovers’ quarrel.

Real romance doesn’t come with a hefty price tag or show its affections by emptying a bank account — or worse, by going into deep debt — in order to prove its sincerity.

Undying devotion isn’t flashy, wanting others  to cheer and applaud your showy efforts.

Authentic love isn’t proven by dramatic gestures, expensive rings or attention-getting tactics. Not at all.

It doesn’t claim that love is showy, but steady. It describes true love — the kind which comes from our creator or Universal mind and is in turn shown to others — by asserting that love “… bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Bear: to properly place under a protective covering

Believe: to be utterly persuaded to be true

Hope: to actively wait for  fulfillment

Endure: to stand your ground, bearing up against hardship

So maybe, true love looks more like this:

It’s the steadfast presence of you, the willingness to stick it out when things get rocky. To demonstrates love when no one else is looking. True love is wholly committed, costing time and effort. It gives with no expectation of recognition or return.

Happy heart day!

Week 19- The better version of me

The struggle to be patient and kind, my emotions are in my control, I can choose to use my case of the grumpy pants(frustration).  But how, R2A2 , yes recognize the rising frustration, stop , change gears(law of substitution) I remember a time my mom was chasing me at the park and I am running and and laughing , I let the memory sit with me and really feel it, I begin to smile.  Why am I frustrated? Well it all boils down to fear, it is like being flattened by a boulder rolling down a mountain.

When my Mom gets it in her mind to walk to the local store, maybe she will forget how to find her way home. Today, she ordered on demand movies because she can’t figure out the remote for the t.v.  Yesterday, she  answered the phone by speaking into the t.v remote.  Somedays there is laughter and just plain silliness other days tears.

Time for reflection, the sits, my thoughts are powerful, the determine how my day will be, my sits will now be in the morning, so I can train my brain on how the future of that day will be, starting with gratefulness to have the opportunity and honor to look after my mom. A shift in perspective. The better version of me is emerging, I cannot cheat the gal in the glass out of the better version of me, I really don’t want heartache and tears, because I didn’t fully engage in thinking my way to giving my mom a better life for the days she has left on this earth.

I am listening to the noise machine, the setting is the crashing of Hawaiian waves, I think of the question “What would the person I intend to be, do next.” The answer, she will  be a better daughter and engage  the wonderful mechanism, my subconscious and train that brain, and she will meet her future self in Kauai this June.

Week 18-the one two punch

Forgiveness is all about taking care of yourself, not the person you need to forgive. It is about putting your desire to feel good before your need to be right. It is about taking 100% responsibility for your own happiness. What are you pretending not to know?  Are you pretending that your happiness is in someone else’s hands.  When you own it, your decisions are your responsibility. You can decide to give your anger, hurt and resentment the heave-ho, because you decide that you deserve to be happy.

So forgiveness is the first punch, the second is belief in yourself. In  order to have the Natural Law of attraction become my best friend, I have unshakeable faith in the not-yet seen. I am so comfortable with trusting the Universall Mind that it becomes second nature and I leap into the void with grace and ease.

This one two punch combo is my battle cry.

Week 17- Superwoman is here

Oh, to be like Superwoman. To step into that phone booth as mild-mannered Clark Kent and step out as Superwomn — fit, flamboyant, ready to fly off and change the world!

But here I am, full of to do’s as I  come  into my sit  and later opening my eyes  — same old list staring me in the face. Clark Kent is transformed. I’m not.

Forget the sit. I want a phone booth.

Friends, it’s not the sit. It’s me.

I’m not sitting alone. I’m with God Almighty, the Universal Mind and I play the part of Clark Kent, the reporter.

I report the news. I tell what’s happening. I provide all the details. I fill my time  with words.

They’re broke. They need money. He’s gotta find a job.

Oh my she’s terribly sick. There’s so much she should be doing.

It’s the big game. The team has worked hard.  They really want to win.

Good little reporter that I am, I don’t just describe what’s happening. I tell the universe  what needs to happen.

This job is perfect for him. They have to hire him.

Heal her. Get her back to work.

Give them the victory. They deserve it.

One day, I step into my sit, a bigger to do list  than usual.

This is such a mess! I don’t know what they should do. You’re the all-seeing, all-knowing Universal mind. You tell me.

I sense the  response:

Ah, you’re catching on.

Who am I to tell Universal mind what to do? He’s omniscient and omnipresent. I can’t tell Him anything He doesn’t already know.

I learn to check my Clark-Kent self at the begining of my sit. I speak less and listen more. Universal Mind  grants me glimpses from His perspective.

He loves money too much.

She needs to be still and know that I am the beginning and the end.

They want that trophy more than they want Me.

I’ve been thinking  about what I want  and asking Universal Mind  to save the day Superman-style, to provide the quick fix, the happy here-and-now. But Universal Mind  looks at the long term, what’s best for eternity. An easy life produces flabby souls. Temporary trouble can be a stepping stone to superwoman  character.

I learn to trust universal Mind’s  plan over my do to list.

Please  teach me to store up my treasure in heaven.

Surround her hospital bed with your presence.

Win or lose, may they play glory.

And that hopeless mess?

Your will be done. I am in the flow, harmony reigns in my life.

Superwoman is taking her cape off for good

Week 16- Kindness

My favourite time of the master key experience, kindness week.

Just 2 random acts of kindness with getting caught, booosting blogs, compliments, smiles, thank you’s and holding doors open, gathering up carts in the parking lots, all lead to massive change within me and my world.

How cool is that?

All the master key students, guides and staff start a tremendous ripple that goes around the world.  Many students  and guides live in France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and the United States to name just a few countries. Just imagine all those people in their own communities bring love, hugs and great feelings of wonder to so many, and the ripples start flowing.

I feel so powerful being part of a cause so much bigger than myself, I am constantly in awe of the changes in myself and my immediate world.

The big payoff for me is the immediate improvment in my life the day I started the MKE and the continally unfolding of knowing the authentic me, and enjoying deep rich relationships with my family and friends.

I am on a path of self discovery, that is limitless. I am nature’s greatest miracle and I share it with the world.
