Why let your week happen without your creative design?
They tell us over 90% of our thoughts are UNCONSCIOUS,
meaning we are not aware of what we are thinking, or creating!
Instead we think the same routine, boring 10%.
For most of us is full of worry, details, scheduling, concerns,
resentments, frustrations, regrets, and unanswered questions.
Very few thoughts, in the whole scheme of things, are serving
us by creating what we want – because we are not even aware of
what they are.
Imagine being behind the wheel of your car late at night.
There are no street lights, only the moon is offering her silver shimmersfrom the sky (or the unconscious). It is dark.
You are then instructed to put your foot to the gas pedal and drive full
speed. You are going somewhere, but you have no idea where, or how to
take control of it. You are in the dark and moving fast.
We are driving our lives at full speed, but in the dark.
What can we do about it?
Bring more of your thoughts into your awareness.
Create what you want with a thought, not a reaction.
For instance: It’s Monday evening and you had another frustrating day
at work. The same things, with different names, seem to happen on most Monday’s.
As you sit down to eat your dinner and suddenly realize, that they deep sigh you just
let out, and the intrinsic fatigue in your deepest self, is the same sigh and
weariness you feel most everytime you sit down to the table for your evening meal.
It’s a repeating pattern.
1+2=3 1+2=3 1+2=3
TRY THIS: After dinner, find a paper and pen and your most comfortable lounging chair.
Ask yourself: What would I like to remember about this week when Sunday night rolls around?
If you were sitting in this same chair on Sunday evening, and this had been a really great week, what
would have happened?
- Would you be sharing the evening with someone you love?
- Would you have received an unexpected $500?
- Would you have lost 3 lbs?
- Would your collegue have asked to resolve an issue?
Only you know what defines “a really great week” for you.
Choose one thing.
Imagine yourself FEELING how you would feel if your old friend, whom you have missed
so much, called you this week out of the blue and suggested having dinner with you on
Sunday night? Feel how happy you would be to hear from them. Hear their voice.
Let yourself enjoy the evening in advance with your imagination.
(Now don’t tell me you can’t do that! You are doing it whenever you worry about the
way things will turn out…it is your imagination in action. You can do this- it may simply
feel unfamililar, and that is okay.)
Once you decide on a creative thought, here are a couple tips that may help.
1. State the creation in the present tense. “I am enjoying a warm and relaxing evening with someone
I love. Our converstion is refreshing, I am feeling alive and connected and hopeful
2. Ask yourself if your creative desire is beneficial to you, for those around you, and for the planet?
If it’s not, you will not get behind it fully, and you are wasting your time. Enough bad stuff happens from
the 90%. So be sure you are in agreement, at your values level, with the outcome. If so…
3. Give yourself permission to enjoy it.
I, Harmony, give my permission for Harmony to enjoy the company of someone she
loves and loves her. Harmony is free to meet, or reconnect with human beings that are loving
and kind and supportive. Harmony can feel good, or elated or satisfied. She is authorized to
live her wildest dreams and feel content in the process. I am behind Harmony 100%
4. Give thanks. “I am moving toward my creations. I am blessed and powerful and my heart
is full of gratitude as I enjoy the process of creating blessing for me and for the world around me.
You probably read a lot f blogs and take in a lot of information. But this blog will do you NO GOOD,
unless you STOP, and take some time for creative intentions. I wish you light and love on your creative journey.
