Angel Messages: 1’s and 8’s

dollar-499481_1920

It’s been a week of 1’s and 8’s.  It started with my wonderful car hitting the 180,000 mile mark.  (Come on, baby!  Let’s go 5 more years!)  And then popped up on the clock, the mini-odometer, a school bus, etc.

Out pops the Angel Numbers 101 book by Doreen Virtue, my handy dandy little translator.  Here are some of the messages:

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 the flow, so ask your angel to help you stay upbeat, especially where it concerns money.

118– Your positive thoughts about money have opened the doors to increased financial flow.  Stay optimistic, because it’s working!

108– Your positive thoughts and prayerful connection with God’s infinite love have yielded an unending flow of abundance for you.

It all matches perfectly with my “Prosperity and Abundance” intuitive report.  I enjoy experiencing how everything, EVERYTHING is connected.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

 

How Grateful Are You?

I have seen the above video a couple of times, and could watch it much more.  I think this was the inspiration for one of my Einstein shower thoughts about being grateful for every bit of my existence.

What if I remembered that I wasn’t taking any material things with me after this lifetime?  (Even my physical body!)  What if I woke up in the morning, grateful for the opening of my eyes?  Grateful to have this physical body?  Grateful for breath, for heart beats, for working body parts?  What if I were grateful for the carpet, floor, and house when I swung my feet over the side of the bed?  We could go on and on, right?

But, do you see?  I’m beginning to see that there is gratitude, and there is GRATITUDE.  Something I’d like to strive for, for sure.  I hope you enjoy the video. 🙂

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Abundance Shift: The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity

I am really excited about this book.  It’s funny because this is not the original post I intended to blog today.  That will come later.  (I am working with one of my favorite artists, Christopher Walker to help me create an image for that post first.)

I had another beautiful session with my coach Jacque (of course!), which led me to want to blog about it, which led me to want an image for it (which was impossible — though I tried to find one — because I had somehow created this image myself out of my own mind!)  This then led to me sharing my blog post draft with Chris to inspire him, which led to him recommending this book to me!

I’ve already begun listening to it.  I’m one hour in, and I love it.  What I love most is that 1) This author is telling me things I’ve heard over and over again but in a way I’m better understanding or maybe ready to understand 2) This author is also shaking up my world a bit!

“I am enough.”  This phrase came up for me first in the Masks Off! coaching class I took with my same coach, Jacque Alderete.  I haven’t really resonated the phrase, but it’s making more and more sense why it’s coming up for me.  I realized today that I have this sense that I need to “earn” money.  That I need to deserve it.  And I was beginning to feel that this would always be out of my grasp.

Catherine Ponder says that there is no “deserving.”  Just by our nature, abundance is ours.  It is the Law of Divine Birthright.  “Mmmhmm,”  I thought.  I had heard this before.  But then she blew me away.  She equated lack thinking to “sin.” “Poverty is a sin. It drives men and women to all manner of terrible things.  It drives people to delinquency and crime. Why would we think it would be right for us not to have enough?”

She said that we as a people have been misreading the Bible.  This came from authority figures wishing to dissuade rebellion and control the masses.  In actuality: “The Bible is a prosperity textbook.”  The Bible clearly shows that settling for lack and limitation IS NOT God’s way.  She says that most of the great men in the Bible had great access to riches.

And then, she really turned my head when she said that asking for money for the sake of the good works you will do with it is just as much of a problem. . .

But it makes perfect sense now.  As children of God (Source) we are meant to be abundant.  “Why should God want us to be poor?” Done.  “Lack” does not fit with our birthright. “Prosperity is your divine heritage.” We have only to ask and also invoke the Universal Laws.  But to ask for abundance because of what we will do with it — that is simply “deserving” all over again, but coming in through the back door.  And can only lead to resentment and frustration when we things don’t work out as we’d hoped: Shouldn’t I have this abundance by now??  Look at all the GOOD I would have done with it!

So, here are the keys I’ve discovered so far:

1. Recognize that your mind is your connecting link to abundance.  Become aware of your attitudes, mental concepts, beliefs, and outlook.  These will influence your ability to receive. Also, be open to how you might receive.  Ponder says abundance comes through the “talents, abilities, and ideas” that are longing for expression through you.    “God can only do for you what he can do through you.”  Open yourself up to these possibilities and be prepared to act.

2. Be a person of increase.  This is the Law Prosperity.  Everyone always has something to give.  Ponder tells the story of a widowed woman who was desperate for food for her family and nearly cried when her wise pastor told her to find something to give.  She then remembered that she had some beautiful flowers in the garden.  She willingly cut them and gave them to a very grateful sick neighbor.

3. Open up contact, say: “I stir up the gifts of God within me and around me, and I am blessed on every hand with happiness, success, and true achievement.”

4. Prepare the way. The same widow set out her finest china for dinner that night in expectation.  The kids began to get excited in anticipation.  Soon after someone who had owed her money came by and dropped off a portion of the debt owed, which was enough for dinner.  Act in expectation of it happening.  Pray, affirm your capacity for abundance.  “I attract whatever I choose.  I choose health and abundance.  I dare to attract riches and its hospitality and enjoy them now.”

I look forward to continued insight!

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Truth Tuesday: The TRUTH (Health and Abundance)

TheScience of Getting RIch

“Every appearance in the visible world tends to produce a corresponding form in the mind, which observes it; and this can only be prevented by holding the thought of the TRUTH.  To look upon the appearance of disease will produce the form of disease in your own mind, and ultimately in your body, unless you hold the thought of the truth, which is that there is no disease; it is only an appearance, and the reality is health.  To look upon the appearances of poverty will produce corresponding forms in your own mind, unless you hold to the truth that there is no poverty; there is only abundance.  To think health when surrounded by the appearances of disease, or to think riches when in the midst of appearances of poverty, requires power; but he who acquires this power becomes a MASTER MIND. He can conquer fate; he can have what he wants.” — from The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles, Chapter 4, page 19

This is another incredible read.  Every day I am reading chapters 4,7, 11, and 14 of this book, as recommended by Mary Morrissey in my Quantum Leap class.  I read aloud and recorded those 4 chapters and have listened to them every day for the past few weeks.  As I begin implementing my morning routine again, I’ve made it a part of the very beginning of my day.  Every time I listen a particular part strikes me.  I’ve been thinking about the above passage a lot lately.

Especially in a time of darkness, or feeling stuck, this passage reveals a wonderful truth: My “reality” isn’t real.  If the true nature of our bodies is health, our natural state is health — then our circumstances are of our creation.  We need to believe in our natural state; we can keep our attention on our natural state of health.  The same goes for abundance.  Wattles talks about knowing you are rich, in all circumstances.  This is something I just read in Rich Dad, Poor Dad, as I blogged on Sunday.  The Rich Dad knows he is actually rich, holding that mindset even when he is struggling financially.  Do you remember those WWJD bracelets? We have sometimes asked: “What would Jesus do?”  We might also ask: “What would my rich (or abundant or healthy!) self do?”

Start noticing what you’re noticing in your day-to-day life.  Be aware of your current environment and your thoughts about it.  Start to notice what is “real.”  Start to realize what is “truth.”

Much love, much health, and much abundance to you all! ❤

Going Deeper (Thoughts & Karma)

ID-100134370I realized I’m starting to work with the suggestions from my  dharma report: I’m starting to follow the path of karma.  I’m following chains of thoughts a little further.  In the past few days I had a few interactions with one of my metaphysics students that really opened my eyes and helped me grow.  I had the chance to meet with her today and share it with her.  First, I had a situation where I needed to take immediate action, and I needed to meet with her immediately before going out of town this weekend.  I was worried she would feel inconvenienced and wouldn’t want to help.  I didn’t even want to talk with her.  But I realized from what we’d just been talking about in class that I needed to change my frame of mind. I needed to find a way to be comfortable with my request and to have faith that we could work it out. And she was perfectly fine and gracious and had no problem with my last-minute request.

Then today I had a situation where I had a last-minute potential job for the day, and it conflicted with this same meeting I’d planned with my student.  I stressed about it for hours in between my errands and tutoring appointments.  It was interesting to observe the paths of my thoughts: the frenzy and the anxiety, the repetitive thoughts, the blaming of other people for the circumstances that had necessitated this meeting, the blaming of myself, the belief that I could somehow, somehow make both work, resigning myself to limited sleep and extra driving, attachment to the potential for extra income, the nail-biting waiting for a returned call, and finally the resolution of sticking with the original plan and letting the job go.  It ended up working out great, and I am grateful for the precious time I had with my student.  And I realized that it was probably better that the job hadn’t worked out.  There was learning in that situation for all of us involved.

There is a lot I have left to learn about money and about the Laws of Prosperity and Abundance.  (My angel numbers messages continue to warn me to keep me thoughts out of the physical realm and focus on my life purpose.  Leave your needs up to us!) And there is a lot to learn about Karma.  But I feel like I’m on the brink of some big realizations.  I’m beginning to see how my frame of mind is preventing me from receiving and how I can begin to shift this.  I pray to God and the angels and Masters to help me with my next steps (because I’m not making it on my own yet!), and I look forward to the awesome things that are coming!

Love and blessings to you all. ❤

Abundance Mentality

ID-100150963A friend recently told me that money is an illusion.  It struck me funny.  What does that really mean? But I knew there was truth to it, and so I held onto it; I saved it for further contemplation.

I have discovered that the more I try to tightly control my finances, the more I get smacked by crazy expenses out of left field!  It is SO completely “coincidentally” connected sometimes, that I’m deciding to do something about it.  I’m going to release my attachment to control of money.  I’m going to trust in the Law of Abundance.

I am not going to suddenly entirely stop caring about money.  I’m going to continue to expect to be paid what I’m worth (and I still have much recognition to go!) And I do have “Pay the Bills” on my 10 Most Wanted list.  I’m going to live in the world, and I’m not going to become careless/lazy.  But I’m realizing — that’s all I really want and need with money — to pay the bills,  to continue to function, to meet my needs.  Anything else I desire at any time can be added to my 10 Most Wanted List as it arises.  I don’t need to have a certain amount of money in my checking or savings.  I need to know that I can continue to function and go on with my work in this world.  And the universe keeps affirming this OVER and OVER.  Angel number sightings and card readings repeatedly tell me: “Chill out!  You have everything you need. And we’ll help you.  We love you.  No worrying.  Keep following your plan. Keep doing the work.”

So, that’s what I’m going to do.  I’m going to keep doing the work.  I’m going to keep working on the connection with my inner Self, keep my physical self happy and healthy, embrace creation and the development of my passions, and serve for the good of all concerned.

May the universe continue to encourage and guide me and all of you! ❤

Just Watch :-)

So much going on with me right now.  (All good things!  A lot of learning!)  Meanwhile — in the process of assimilating everything — I’ve come across this perfectly timed video.  It’s too good not to share it with all of you — my soul leaps with inspiration and joy!   Prepare to be wowed!  Especially by the second half!

And then read this.  It matches perfectly:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
