Hi all – a bit late with this post! It occurred to me last week how different my brain is now working…mostly for the better! My No. 2 daughter is overseas at the moment and is visiting Salzburg in Austria. She managed to get the last Sound of Music tour of the year and as a bonus they gave her a free extended version so she was free to roam the streets on the bicycle for the day. I just loved that film, Sound of Music with Julie Andrews. I begged my dad to take me when and I think I even suggested it could be my birthday present…..
So I started thinking of my favourite song in the movie – My Favourite Things. And as I am singing “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favourite things…….when the dog bites….when the bee stings??…when Im feeling sad??? I simply remember my favourite things AND THEN I DONT FEEL SO BAD!!!” OMG – the Law of Substitution – you cant think of two things at once so when you think of something negative….turn instead to a positive thought! Its everywhere if we but open our eyes. So without knowing it my favourite song is really all about this great Law and I have been singing it but sadly not applying it until now!

I was reading a post by Kenneth Copeland last week – he quoted from the book of Hebrews 10:35-36 and explained its meaning. I found it quite fascinating as it really ties in with our blue print builder and Hannel – its about yes, having the confidence (faith) to know that what we have asked for is a done deal, but also to have patience – or being consistently constant in that belief. Patience, he says, is the power twin of faith. He explains ….what happens to the faith that you have the job you asked for, “when you go to three interviews and get turned down all three times?Then what? Well, that is when you have to make the decision to stay constant, to act as if nothing’s changed!” Sooooo, that means I act as if I already have the liberty, I already have that recognition regardless or the circumstances I see in my world without. I just have to be patient. I also see this in the universal Law of Least Effort – which is Acceptance! “I will practice acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances and events as the occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they were”. Copeland goes on to say “faith opens the door to God’s promise for you; and patience keeps it open until that promise is fulfilled”. Yep! Patience!
This phrase is really jumping out at me every time I read the Scroll. GOOD HABITS! I read this scroll for the month last year…I did miss some lunch times, I did miss some evenings and I did miss some mornings but I thought it really didn’t matter… I would catch up. But I didn’t…”I lose not a day from these readings for that day cannot be retrieved nor can I substitute another for it”…I read this but I didn’t see it! I can see now why this is so important….its easy for the old blueprint to say “that’s okay Janet, don’t worry about reading at lunch time today, you read this morning, that’s enough” and then one miss becomes two and so on. But not this time mate! My old blueprint is going to cop a whopping! I have not miss one read even when I come home at midnight from work, I read it, I do the work. Today my head is heavy with a cold, but I read through my sniffles! I help a friend clean a house, but when my alarm goes off at 12, I find a quiet corner and I read!
And, yes, it is a small price to pay for “the happiness and success that IS mine and I want that happiness, I want that success!
BRING IT ON!
Hi All – I’m baacccck! I am repeating my 26 week course and actually find that I am highlighting different things in Lesson 1. Different things are jumping out at me! For instance…there appears to be a lot about HARMONY in this first lesson which I don’t recall even noticing the word. And then in No. 8 – “In the world within may be found INFINITE WISDOM, INFINITE POWER, INFINITE SUPPLY of all that is necessary, waiting for unfoldment, development and expression”! How amazing! I have everything I need to fulfill my DMP, my dreams, inside me! Inside me! Just waiting to unfold……WOW! I have to become conscious of this Power that is within me. After reading No 8 I literally felt 10 foot tall and unstoppable!
Watch out…here I come!
Well..here we are 6 months later and what a ride! I am definitely not the same person I was 25 weeks ago…no, I havent become wealthy or seen any of my goals/main purposes in life come to fruition…yet! However I do know that I am planting the right seeds now and in this moment they are putting down roots. I am nourishing their growth with my positive mental attitude, my focus on “the one thing” (my magnifying glass) and my compass to make sure I am heading in the right direction at all times. And watering the seeds daily with all the other hundred of things we have learnt along the way, but most of all cherishing their growth with love. Thank you to all the leaders, Mark J, the Fab Davene and Trish and to all my fellow Masterminders for your sensational input during these last 5 weeks. I love you all ❤
Wow! I have loved all the last 23 webinars but this one really got to me especially when Davene said – “you were conceived in love therefore you are love and you were brought forth with a purpose”! Yes! I am a unique miracle! Maybe I am a tad slow, but it just hit me – BAM! Another curious thing happened this past week – driving along and a song from the Carpenters came on the radio – Close to Me – and I suddenly visualised myself so clearly when I was about 9 or 10 cycling to my Aunts place, about 2 to 3 miles from home, singing this at the top of my voice. I just burst into tears for that child and wondered what ever happened to her, so carefree and full of dreams? What ever happened to me? I got covered in cement and when I look back, I can see I have bounced from disaster to disaster and I can also see the opportunities I had to grow stronger, to be an overcomer, and I took those opportunities and this has all led me to now, right now in “this moment which is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be and I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they were”. Now I learn to listen to that inner voice, in the silence and in the hubbub of life, and I trust it and let go of the roles I think I am supposed to play, I break out of the cement, I persist and I succeed!
The Silence! How my blueprint fought this tooth and nail – “I dont have time for this…..when am I going to fit this in…how do you not talk when you have kids asking you questions every second…..on and on the storm clouds brewed and thundered overhead! Then suddenly…blue skies, the sun was out and birds were singing…I could immediately see exactly when I could fit in not only a few hours, but a day and then actually a day and a half! The lion, my patronus, had roared and my old blueprint scurried away 🙂
I shut myself away in my room and did some reading, meditating and generally just let my mind think! And boy, was it noisy and full of chatter. I dont know that it ever went completely quiet – think I may have needed an extra day or two. However, at some stage a thought cut across all other thoughts, I feel I almost heard it…it said “You spend more time working on how you look on the outside and not enough time working on the inside”. What the?? Who said that? How cheeky! I tried to forget the thought but it was very insistent and it stayed and eventually I had to agree that it was absolutely correct! So now I know I need to spend more time in silence, to work on my inside, more mental effort on the mental diet and Franklin makeover. It was a “voice” that I recognised, I have heard it a few times before at turning points in my life….and it is not to be ignored!
I was very excited when I realised I am on the right path to achieve my heart’s desire, my purpose in life….now for that journey..
