ID-100144737The 2nd habit of Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is begin with the end in mind.  I read this years ago, but today I finally made the metaphysical connection.  The “end” that Covey speaks of is the same “what” that Mary Morrissey speaks of in her DreamBuilder and Morning Mentor programs.  As Mary says, our inner mind understands pictures, and the more clearly we can image our goals, purposes, and ideals, the more the universe can bring together the “how”s to make our “what”s happen.

What does this mean?  We get clear on what we want, what we really want.  What are our dream?  We see these dreams as clearly as if we are living those dreams today, as I’m learning in DreamBuilder.  We step into those dreams.  And then we shine the light of our attention on those dreams, just as I’ve been learning in the School of Metaphysics in the visualization lessons. (I love how everything I’ve been learning is coming together!)  Meanwhile, we don’t worry about how it’s going to happen.  We focus on clearly presenting what our dream is to the universe, so that our subconscious mind (inner mind) can do what it does best.

As we clarify our dream, we keep ourselves open and receptive to what the subconscious mind has brought for us.  (It may come in unexpected ways!)  I love the story of the man praying to be saved from the flood:  As the waters began to rise, he prayed to be saved.  A neighbor in a canoe came by, but he said “No thanks, God will save me.”  Police came by in a motorboat, but again, he waved them on.  Finally, the waters were so high that he was forced onto the roof, and a helicopter dropped down a rope.  The man insisted that he was trusting in God and stayed put.  So, the man drowned.  When he got to heaven he questioned God about this, and God replied, “I gave you the canoe, the motorboat, and the helicopter!”  We may have a goal or dream and put our attention on it and pray and pray and pray for it to happen, but if we don’t keep our mind open to the possibilities — the subconscious mind is full of infinitely amazing possibilities — we stay blindly stuck in our limitations and miss wonderful, fulfilling opportunities.

In today’s Morning Mentor, Mary encouraged her listeners to focus on 3 times in our lives when everything really came together for us.  I’m going to list my 3 now, and I encourage you to do the same and then to reflect on this throughout the day:

  1. Studying abroad in Mexico.  I could feel it.  I knew I was going.  I was scared; I didn’t know how all of the details were going to work out (and some I figured out after I got there!), but I knew I was going.  I just knew it.  And it was one of the best experiences of my life.
  2. Getting a 2nd dog.  Brian planted the thought of getting a new dog in my head, and I ran with it.  It was so firmly entrenched that I picked up “Leia” a few weeks later from the local animal control, and we all adore her.  Though she was not the dog we’d originally imagined, and she turned out to be quite a handful, she fits in perfectly in our household.
  3. My fiancee Brian.  A few months before Brian and I started dating I became entrenched in the idea that I was going to have an intimate relationship that year.  I got what I’d wanted and more, a relationship that has lasted 7 years and that continues to blossom and grow.

What are your 3? (I would love it if you would share your stories in the comments below!) I wish you all wonder, blessings, and the fulfillment of your dreams.

Riding the Wave

Just a quick one today.  I’ve still been a bit up and down this week. I hit a major high Wednesday morning and plummeted a bit Wednesday night.  Today I struggled back to my new equilibrium point.  I’ve been facing my old pessimistic, negative self and also my overanxious, overconscious self.  I’ve also met some amazing, high vibrational people and had some amazing experiences with tithing!

Through it all, the message continues to be to stay positive.  Stay positive and live and breathe what you really want.  Live it and own it.

It’s time to make some dreams come true. <3

Love and joy to you all.  <3

So, I’m still trying to find some balance with everything.  I think the most important thing is to continue to be positive.  The angel numbers I receive continue to reiterate this point.  Today I’ve been receiving 1’s and 5’s, reminding me of the importance of change and of having positive thoughts throughout.  Doreen Virtue’s Weekly Angel Card Reading this week emphasized the same.  It’s time to shed limitations.  It’s time to leap gracefully into the loving arms of our supportive universe.  I continue to sporadically see my 1’s and 3’s combos that comfortingly remind me that the Ascended Masters are continually supporting and lifting me up as well.

**********************************************************************

  1. Wake up at 5:30am.  This. . .  has not been happening.  I need to reevaluate.  New goal: 7 hours of sleep.
  2. Try new contacts —Yes!  Wore them for 5 hours on Sunday.  Will wear them again tonight.
  3. Two-hand point at myself and tell myself “I love you, Self!”  and “Teri, you are larger than life!” every time I pass a mirror. — I’m doing it!  More along the lines of: “You are awesome!”  And it feels great!  Try it!
  4. Swim — Am still swimming about twice a week.  I need to make sure I keep this up and possibly add in a new yoga class.
  5. Blog (even if it’s just a sentence) — Fell off on this one, but I’m back!
  6. Continue my new spiritual exercise. — Check!
  7. Watch 3 minutes of a travel video (Hawaii). Have not been doing this.  But did read a few travel blogs.  That was pretty great.
  8. E-mail DreamBuilder friends Need to do this!

Other major accomplishments this week:

  • Started with a new tutoring student.
  • Started regularly listening to Morning Mentor
  • Spoke with assistants for LifeMastery Program
  • Had a wonderful Metaphysical Game Night
  • Met with a wonderful friend from college (13 years later!)

Love and many blessings to you all! <3

How do you fully intend to live your life?  In today’s “Morning Mentor” by Mary Morrissey, she directs us to write an intention for our lives.

“I fully intend to live my life as a person who _______________________.”

(My answer) Elevates myself so that I may elevate others.

I had a dip in vibration yesterday.  I called it my “Tuesday Dip,” but this Tuesday was my last one.  I talked with a good friend and classmate yesterday, and he told me that I just can’t be negative anymore.  I can’t choose it anymore.  It serves no purpose.  And it thwarts the good work that I’m trying to do.  This is the message that I have been receiving from my angels, as well.  “Be warned!  You are creating your future with your current thoughts!”

Like the 1’s and 8’s I’ve been seeing: (from Doreen Virtue’s: Angel Numbers 101)

“18

Your thoughts are the valve that opens and shuts your financial flow.  As you stay positive, all the material resources you need come to you easily. However, worry can stop this flow, so ask your angels to help you stay upbeat, especially where it concerns money.”

I think it’s time to get all Pollyanna up in this joint.

Possible topic for tomorrow: Into the Bigger Fishbowl: Why to Make the Leap

Love and blessings to you all. <3

I’m in bed, and I just remembered that I promised to blog. This still counts! More tomorrow (later today) . . .

This past weekend I had an amazing experience, and I made a bold move, a decision that would facilitate big changes for myself.  (More to follow)

Why did I do it?

Because I couldn’t imagine not doing it.

I couldn’t continue to live life the way I’ve always lived.  I knew where I was headed, and I didn’t like it.  Stability.  Monotony.  Small changes.  Small life. . . and a small ME.

I AM the change I wish to see in the world, and I am a living example.  I dream big.  I live big, and I believe in myself.  And I know that by being my biggest, best me — by letting my light shine and going after my dreams — I will give others permission to do the same. “We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. . .  as we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.” — Marianne Williamson

What are you going to do with the most important day of your life? (TODAY!)

Tomorrow I (besides my other awesomeness will):

  1. Wake up at 5:30am.  (Naps acceptable).
  2. Take my new contacts out of packaging and locate the solution and case.
  3. Two-hand point at myself and tell myself “I love you, Self!”  and “Teri, you are larger than life!” every time I pass a mirror.
  4. Swim
  5. Blog (even if it’s just a sentence)
  6. Continue my new spiritual exercise.
  7. Have an awesome interview.
  8. Have 3 kick-butt classes with my students.
  9. Connect with my friend.
  10. Continue to be awesome. <3

Bless you all.  Welcome to rest of your life! :-D
