Day 6 of my Manifestation Miracle Journey
Let me begin by sharing something significant to me. As we all know. . .the steps of a break up can be horrific, heartbreaking and terrifying. When HE first left, I had many mild panic attacks about what I would do for work, my ineffective and fear based solution was to scour job ads like crazy. Then, I applied for any job I was qualified for even though I was filled with dread at the thought of the job. It was purely a knee jerk reaction to my life feeling so out of control. I wanted something safe and shame on HIM for taking that security away from me.
So now the explanation of the significant moment, I can positively say that starting today, I’m not worrying about what my next step is going to be. Instead, I am giving myself a gift. . .in the form of one year to focus back on real estate to see where it takes me, to focus on my writing and see where that takes me. I am using this time to invest in myself. What amazing gift can you give yourself, one that will inspire you every day?
Day 6 is all about getting to know my soul and guess what. . .we are back to meditating! Dear God. . . more meditating! Does sarcasm delete my positive thoughts? I hope not, otherwise I am screwed! I mean. . .this meditation time is practically a full time job!
Your soul is your spiritual being and the true identity of who you are. Get to know your soul and you will come to know your true self.
The three parts of us are the mind, body and soul. . . I feel I know my body really well. . .I know how far I can push myself before things start to hurt. I feel that I know my mind pretty well since I am listening to the constant dialogue running through it all the time, but my soul. . . do I know my soul?
One suggestion to get in touch with my soul is a breathing exercise. That was easy for me because I have always practiced relaxation breathing to ward off my stress induced migraines. So. . .breath in through your nose for 4, hold for 5 and release for 6, repeat until relaxed. Feeling relaxed? Now let your mind wander, freely.
As I was in my deep state of relaxation, eyes closed, body loose. . .I saw myself bathed in yellow light, floating. A few years ago a friend told me that I shine from the inside out. Think about that for a moment, what an amazing compliment. I haven’t heard that or more importantly I haven’t felt that in way too long. Sadly, I don’t believe that we can know something without the comparison of its opposite. We can’t know happiness without having felt sadness. Today, I didn’t realize that I haven’t been shining until I saw the visual of myself shining. Obviously, that is my soul’s goal because I know I haven’t been shining, but there I was, in my mind, exactly how I want to be.
Time for Annie to get her shine back!
3 things that I am grateful for today –
- My daughter, Morgan coloring with me in my adult coloring book.
- The feeling of empowerment by giving myself a year to invest in me.
- Cleaning my house. I love the way it feels when everything is where it belongs. My whole world seems lighter and brighter when my house is clean.
Despite whether you believe in the Law of Attraction, this process is forcing me to look at myself in a new way and it feels good. Every day I am feeling better and better and I know that I am becoming a stronger, shinier girl.
Take today and shine!
