Welcome to Day 74 of 365 Moments of Clarity Project
Hello Everyone! First, I want to say thank you for reading my blog. Today is Day 74 and for me that is a significant number. To think that I started with an idea and have reached my momentous Day 74 is simply exciting to me. Thank you for embarking on this journey with me.
Today, I am writing in the early morning instead of late at night, my usual inspirational time. I am testing a new theory about creating reflection time in the morning verses at night. My usual morning routine is to wake, ready myself for the day, walk my precious Bella dog and then begin my daily task list. Yet, today I decided to pick up my inspirational books and see the message they had for me.
On my bedside currently are two books that arrived in my path this year, Creating Money Attracting Abundance by Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer and Miracles Now by Gabrielle Bernstein. Both books utilize the method of randomly turning to a page and reading the message that is on the page. This is one of my favorite methods for reflection. It allows the universe to speak to you through words. The idea is that whatever page you land on is the message you need to hear for that day or time in your life.
I began with Creating Money. The message I received is this one.
What an empowering message! So direct. So strong. Beautiful. This wonderful chapter titled “You Can Do What You Love” is all about your life purpose. It discusses how your deepest authentic desires are your soul’s messages to your consciousness. I wish some day to have a university where I teach light workers so that they may go out in the world and light up the world with their energy. That is my deepest desire and each and every move I make these days are for that highest calling I have in my heart. It all started with a desire to serve others on a deeper level, which developed into this website and eventually into my 365 Moments of Clarity project. My favorite quote from this passage is the following:
Your soul is not limited by the identity you have right now; it sees the larger picture of who you are and knows what is possible for you to accomplish in this lifetime. It shows you your potential and direction by giving you dreams of your ideal life. – Sanaya Roman, page 183 of Creating Money
When I moved my dreams from a desire of self to a desire to serve my dreams became bigger and more unlimited and my capabilities grew to something I didn’t even know existed before. As Dr. Seuss wrote in ‘How the Grinch stole Christmas’, “… the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day.” As I turn to envelop an altruistic goal, my heart grows and therefore my purpose in life grows with it.
Receiving this message above allows me to feel as though I have the whole universe supporting me on my mission. This blog is my stepping stone to this new life that is my authentic purpose. And this is just the start of my day. As this amazing message is being delivered to me in the morning I am able to appropriately align my actions to carry this message through the day.
I decided before writing this blog to the world that I would first read a page in the ‘Miracles Now’ book and see how aligned the two messages may be. I turned to page 183, #78: Deal with Your Own Mind. It talks about the concept of “Zero Mind” by Yogi Bhajan. “Zero Mind” is where ego is brought to complete stillness. As I wrote before, I am not against ego. Ego protects you, loves you and wants to make sure you are always safe from hurt or pain. Yet, ego sometimes does his/her job too well and ego can suffocate you and prevent you from growing. When you practice bringing your mind to stillness, ego sort of meditates with you. It is in this moment when ego is quiet that messages of the highest order arrive in your being, your consciousness.
For me, this was a great action step. I heard the empowering message that I am in charge of my own destiny and now I am given a path to find the steps of that destiny or my next action plan by developing Zero Mind and listening.
Yes. These messages are completely aligned for me to fulfill my day’s purpose. I believe reflection in the morning can be just as powerful as my reflection at night if not more powerful because when I reflect in the morning, I align my soul’s desire to my actions. At night my reflection is an after thought of the day, a gratitude prayer and a preparation for restful sleep with empowering dreams. Just as important mind you, yet the morning has a strength to move my life’s purpose forward faster as I align more with my authentic truth.
Daily Reflection Exercise
For today’s exercise, I would invite you to schedule some time to reflect in the morning if this is not your usual time. Choose at least one of your favorite inspirational books and simply take 20 minutes to read and reflect on those messages and how you can align your actions to those messages through-out the day.
If you normally schedule your reflection time in the morning then I ask that you try a session at night and see if anything new shows up for you that may not have shown up in the morning.
The goal is to experience a new awakening by switching your schedule up. It is very similar to muscle confusion when working out. You don’t want to do the same exercise day in and day out or you will stop building muscle or loosing fat, whatever your goal may be. In the same aspect, by switching up your reflection schedule, you will not hit a spiritual plateau. As we continue to grow and become more authentically ourselves, we move into a world that is so full of abundance and love.
I challenge you in your meditation today to state the affirmation above 108 times. If you have a mala necklace, this is a great time to use it.
I AM IN CHARGE OF MY DESTINY. I AM THE BUILDER OF MY LIFE.
As you repeat this affirmation, what shift do you feel in your being or aura? How do you feel differently? What actions can you take today to move you forward to your heart and soul’s desires?
If you feel drawn to share your story, I am always blessed to receive it. Namaste.
