Today is a ‘not’ day. The road I’m traveling, endless possibilities, revealed a new path today while doing a Facebook podcast. On live, I experienced a meltdown and realized how expectations could turn you around and put you on another road.
It’s easy to expect others to do something so that I can stay in the shadows. When those expectations start to fall apart, you can’t deny a message is waving you down. In my case after three tries, in one week, it caught my attention. I need to step out and create for myself what I seek, without strings attached.
Holidays come sewn in with unrealistic expectations, yet they offer a shadow of magical hope. What if? Wouldn’t it be nice? Our heart skips a beat with the promise of a ‘perfect’ holiday. Our meal, presents, family gatherings, friend gatherings will go as we planned, This concept lights up the inner child within us with hope. Though not raised Christian, I often relate this to the Santa Clause Affect. The magic of maybes.
Thanksgiving is my magical time more than the December Holidays. It’s a time of gratitude for all we have. It is to spread love to all who wish to join. It’s not a religious holiday, just a day of appreciation. Since my husband’s death rarely has Thanksgiving met our open door policy. This policy was something I believed in before meeting him.
The sadness of being excluded finally worked its magic and woke me up to one fact. I can still create this. Clearly, through the tears I’ve shed over these past five days, it is an important holiday for me. I could carry on my tradition since the passion is there. It is within that flame that all things are possible. I have vowed next year I will have a place where people can come and enjoy the holidays, if they wish, with me. I will carry on my tradition.
My description for myself, being alone, has acted as a block. The first step to take is to erase that thought from both my conscious and subconscious mind when it pops up as a deterrent.
What is your constant limiting thought? Does it have to deal with relatives, ex, financial, or any other area that is a recurring thought? Erasing a thought takes time, but one day, you will have to think what was it you deleted? At one time, I consistently stated, “Poor Jasmine”, which is equivalent to keeping abundance out of my life. A consistent statement wrapped in emotions must come true. Words create what we express through them.
That sentence now is vacantHo’oponopono Excerise in Breaking Down Blocks in my mind. How did I do it?
This Ho’oponopono exercise does the trick.
Today, I do weep. These are tears of joy and surrender. It is I who must create my vision, not another. I can share with those who wish, for strings attached is never the way.
