Sometimes, I just don’t know what to do with my self. I’m all over the place like a Burt Bacharach compilation cd. It’s at those times that I reach out to my sistar and good, good friend, Farrah aka Dr. Phoenix.
For a few months now I’ve been working with principles of manifestation and positive mental attitude as illustrated by Napoleon Hill and Earl Nightingale. Lately however, this practice has felt a little hollow and I recently realized that I haven’t REALLY been paying attention…just kind of going through the motions.
That’s probably why I’ve felt as if I’ve been floundering and a little muddled.
Neglecting the spiritual is not a way to manifestation.
Adding Louise Hay to my rotation has been wonderful and although it’s only been a few days, I feel more spiritually motivated. But yesterday? Yesterday I felt as if I were grasping for straws so, I called Farrah. We talked today and it was so affirming.
I told her that I’ve been feeling as if fear was holding me back from experiencing or even asking Infinite Intelligence to experience spiritual things that would promote me to the next level. Fear is the Mind Killer. I know that…but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was using fear as excuse to not go further into the unknown.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
― Frank Herbert,
At the end of our conversation, I told her that I was going to meditate and seek answers. I lay down, turned on a frequency and promptly fell asleep. When I woke, slightly miffed at myself for falling asleep, I checked my email.
Guess what I found. A free workshop dedicated to freeing oneself from fear. I was ecstatic…still am.
My lesson over the last couple of weeks has been that every blessing doesn’t come the way we expect it to come. As the old folks say, “It may not come when you want it but it always comes on time.” I tell ya, those words are so true.
Words DO have power. So, as I settle in for the night with Louise, I’m Happy.
Speaking of…I was set to have an attitude about the music on the radio this morning on my way to work when I flipped the station and “Happy” by Pharell was on.
