Linking, kindness, and the Laws of Practice and Growth are the focus of this week. The readings and repetition are linking and contributing to my inner shifts.
“I am nature’s greatest miracle”, begins Scroll IV.
Each reading has connected me again with an idea, an action or activity I either plan to do or had not thought of doing before but find I want to complete. Creativity is at work. With each read the ideas permeate my soul and makes me smile. These ideas REALLY ARE TRUE for me. Whoo hoo!
“Since the beginning of time never has there been another with my mind, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair, my mouth…I am a unique creature.” In the past when I have thought some of these thoughts I would automatically gloss over them. My father’s mantra, “Don’t get the FAT Head, Diane” Dad would say. The virtue of humility was highly prized in my family.
Through repetition I am building real confidence. Just as the Blue Print Builder states, “I shall have developed self-sufficient self-confidence” so I am. Confidence leads to self-efficacy which actually frees me up to listen to my higher self and be a bigger contributor to others – to LIFE.
Multiple times I have thought, “I need to copy each phrase that speaks to me and then write about how it speaks to me.” I am in the idealization part of the thinking process and writing is a key to access.
Here’s a phrase that really has been big for me: “Vain attempts to imitate others no longer will I make. Instead will I place my uniqueness on display in the market place. I will proclaim it, yea, I will sell it…different from all others and proud of the difference.” I am actually excited about thinking differently, being different, looking different. This is NEW for me. And the ideas are starting to roll.
And here’s another link to better living: As I actively think loving thoughts about me I naturally think them about others. Example: I am walking down the sidewalk toward work replaying that first sentence in my head. “I am nature’s greatest miracle.” Then, without missing a beat the “I” is replaced with the name of someone I love and immediately “They” also are nature’s greatest miracle. Appreciation for others has become more automatic.
I could go on and on…There is a paragraph that states “I will increase my knowledge of mankind, myself, and the goods I sell, thus my sales will multiply. I will practice, and improve, and polish the words I utter to sell my goods, for this is the foundation on which I will build my career…” Each time I read that section I am inspired to WANT to learn more of the how to’s of my trade and my fear of failure diminishes.
“I am nature’s greatest miracle.” And so are you.
Brilliant and beautiful!
And I love the idea of writing down on a card a phrase that jumps out at me, along with exploring and writing down why!
Great blog. I totally get you with this scroll. I like it to very much.
Dog gone right Diane! you and the all the rest of us—let’s get that Fat Head and be creatively audacious!!!
Great post, Dianne, really a good read and I so enjoy Your honesty!
Mahalo, I appreciate You!
Back atcha’ :0)
Love your posts 🙂 Always thoughtful.
Love this and congrats on the diminishing fears 😉
Week 16! Fabulously shared.
Love your using the Law of Substitution in your reflection of “I am natures greatest Miracle”
Thank you…I did not even think of it that way…it IS becoming automatic. :0)
Fatness in our family extended beyond the Dreaded Fat Head
There was also the better to be dead than fat, something I ruthlessly apply to myself alone, not others.
Yet, Dad laid down his life for us as we do for those we love. Imagine.
Get the Fat Head!!
Glad you wrote what you did about Dad…he was, is (as I believe he lives still) an amazing person and a huge lover of his children…it is truly interesting how we each fold words and experiences into our lives and make meaning, often other than intended.
And you are the world’s greatest!
Your blog reflects how admirably you are taking the changes
on. So authentic as I hear you talk during the week.
You are becoming and are the best coach ever.
