Welcome to Day 68 of 365 Moments of Clarity Project
Today’s Moclar Moment or Moment of Clarity aligns perfectly with my strong synchronistic weekend. Read more about it on Day 69 .
Today we did a deep dive into finding your internal power. It’s that voice or that knowing that you don’t know the how but you know the result and no matter the how, you will get the result.
There have been many in my life that told me I couldn’t do this or that. Me included in that list. And yet I continually try new things, break new personal ceilings and surprise myself with how much strength I do have. This meditation comes at the perfect time of my current life’s events.

Last week as some of you know from my absence from blogging, was a challenging week. I felt a little down and depressed and feeling like I wasn’t going to make it. I was completely out of alignment with the flow of life and completely detached from my power center. It was an awful feeling of not being enough, not good enough.
I don’t know how you react but I know when I get to the place where I allow my gremlin to step in and tell me I am not good enough, I become ultra sensitive to everything; even twisting people’s words in my head or their body language. My interpretations are simply disproportional to the actual reality that is before me. Due to the fact that I am a spiritual person and have spent years getting to know my moods, I knew that my reality was skewed. So instead of acting out to innocent bystanders, I sunk in and retreated until I could ground myself again and center myself in love.
This would take a few days but I was able to pull through. To read how I made that happen, hop on over to Day 69 where a story of overwhelming synchronicity demonstrates the true beauty of the universe .
This message today of finding our power is directly in perfect correlation to my frame of mind. Deepak says that to experience inner strength we want to tap into the flow of the universal power.
But how do you tap into that flow? How do you get there? Where do you begin?
As you all know, I always begin with meditation. It is not fool proof. It may not work all the time, but it is the best place to begin. Next is about reminding yourself of a time where you thought something was impossible or it felt impossible and somehow you pulled through.
This reminds me of a saying I read a little while ago. I wish I could remember the original quote but I, unfortunately, couldn’t find it. The concept is this…
When you are in the midst of a struggle and feel as if there is no way to get out of this negative whirl wind of a situation, remember that you have a 100% success rate of moving past all your other previous struggles.
Once I read that quote, I never forgot that concept. I now remind my clients of that when they come to me upset and feeling like success is just not meant for them. I always let them know that they have been successful their WHOLE lives.

Day 3 in Finding Your Flow
It is important to be able to recognize when you are feeling out of alignment with the flow of life, with your core happiness, core power and strength and with being authentically you. Today, I would like you to take 10 to 15 minutes or less. Write down what it feels like for you when you are out of alignment, sad, depressed and your heart hurts. What happens to you in those moments? Be very descriptive and don’t leave anything out. Describe your body language and your words, even perhaps the clothes you might wear.
Now write what it is a like to be in alignment, to be happy, to feel like everything is going your way and to feel like you are the queen of the castle in your life. Again, be very descriptive. Really get into this exercise. When you are happy, how does it feel? How does it affect your food choices? Who do you call? When do you go to sleep or wake up?
If you are a creative one and have time, one option to really get to know you and bring this into reality for you is to make some visualization boards. One for what it is like to be out of alignment and the other of what it is like to be in alignment with your true being, your true passion and love.
“Today, pause to notice the times when you feel an easy confidence in your ability. Notice how smoothly the energy flows during these moments. The experience of drawing upon inner power is just like that – silent, unassuming, and self-assured. Pay attention to how you feel in these moments. With this awareness, you can practice remembering and tapping into the flow of inner strength, increasing your confidence and sense of well-being in all aspects of your life. As you absorb today’s meditation experience, remain connected to your true inner power, knowing that your entire life is upheld by creation’s unlimited energy. Namaste”
My Journal Entries for Day 3
Who do you look up to as a model of self-confidence? Make a list of people you think of as courageous and strong. It can be someone in your family, a historical figure, or even a character in a book or movie. As you admire these people, you are being pointed to a quality that lives within you as well.
I can list so many people. Yet, I will do a short list of the few who are my virtual mentors. Those goddesses that never stop to impress with me with their work, their strength and their love.
- Gabrielle Bernstein; Marie Forleo; Oprah; Marianne Williamson; Kris Carr; Louise Hay; Danielle La Porte
I have loads of friends that inspire me but they haven’t given me permission to list them here. They know who they are and I am thankful for them daily.
Then I have some movie characters that just stun me with their tenacity to follow their intuition; such as August Rush/Evan Taylor and Martin Sheen as Tom in The Way.
Describe a situation where you needed to do a task and you didn’t know how you would do it, but you rose to the challenge because something inside said, “You can do this.” As you recall that situation, what did that confidence feel like? What or who inspired you to take the courageous step? Did you feel that strength centered anywhere in your body?
I am a person who believes I can do it all. You give me a task, I make it happen. That is my motto. I don’t believe anything is impossible.
That being said, the one event that comes to the top of my mind about not knowing how I would make something happen is my attempt at being debt free. Some years back, I had decided that by a certain age, I would be debt free. I didn’t know how I was going to do it but I promised myself I would.
I surrendered the how and just took baby steps to get me there. Eventually through many mistakes and a few right actions, I can safely say that my last debt bill will be October 2015.
The confidence that I am going to feel writing that last check is going to be one of profound celebration and the proof that anything is possible, even the impossible is always possible. 🙂
I inspire myself to take action. I am a strong self-motivator. That trait goes a long way to getting things done. I set my own impossible goals and make them possible. In fact, most people think I am crazy for the goals I set, as they see them as too ambitious and a way to set myself up for disappointment and maybe depression.
But remember, I set intentions, never expectations. If my last check isn’t October 2015, that’s okay. It wasn’t meant to be and that is not labeled a failure. Just set a new intention. It is as easy as that. 🙂
Hmmm… Where do I feel it when I accomplish something? My throat. Because I cannot stop talking about it. LOL!!!!
Write about an area in your life where you are talented – perhaps it is problem-solving at work, and you have acquired an easy confidence. Feel that confidence in your solar plexus and know that when your life is flowing, that confidence will be there, always.
In my previous life and still 50% current life, my main talent is a jack of all trades when it comes to graphic/web development and technical know how as well as problem-solving to get projects done. If you want something done, you come to me. Simple as that. If I cannot do it, I will find someone who can.
Hmmm… Actually thinking about it my talent is resourcefulness. Either I will learn what I need to get something done or I will hire it out. Either way, I always look for success.
Great visualization! Loved the tie in with the solar plexus.
If you feel drawn to share your story, I am always blessed to receive it. Namaste.
