“First: seek joy, and all else follows. Since your feeling of joy is your indication of your connection with your Source, once you have achieved joy, you have achieved connection with your Source. And under these circumstances, all that is good follows.”
On June 14, I was contacted by a mother of a teen-aged girl, asking for some good energy and support in holding the vision that her beloved daughter would be able to get into a particular community.
You see, her daughter is autistic, and her mother knew this community will love and support her daughter as she moves into adulthood. It will offer her opportunities that her mother simply cannot provide.
I wrote her back something to the effect of:
This week, on July 13, she emailed me again, telling me that the funding had been approved. (She had been concerned about this because this particular community was more expensive than the state’s budget normally allowed. And yet, it was approved.)
This is the work for all of us as we co-create our lives, and co-create our visions. It is to us to hold fast to that vision, to tap away the fears and the dis-belief, and to shift the dis-belief into belief. It is up to us to say to ourselves “Yes, I can!” over and over and over and over (did I say over?), until we are in alignment with that vision.
And when we are in alignment? Manifestation!
Most of us don’t think we have a choice. We do. We choose how we approach an issue. We choose how we step into our faith and how we give it voice. We choose what we do with the darkness that sometimes surrounds us, and even fills us until we can barely see the light. We get to choose, just as this loving mother did.
Truly, how cool is that? How awesome that we have the option of choice? What are your visions? What are your fears about your visions? What are your dreams? Your hopes? Your desires? What conversations are you having both in your head and with your family and friends about why you can’t have your dreams and desires come into being?
You can choose differently again. And when you forget and start listening to those inner voices? You can choose yet again. And again. And again.
