I receive love deeply and fully.
My essence is love."
"My future is filled with joy, love, and peace."
I find it amazing that the Earth segment of this program falls on Earth Day. How cool is that?
We are nearing the end of Soul Coaching; tomorrow is the last day. How fast these 28 days are passing!
Today I was to focus on creating my future and (1) visualize it (2) write a letter from my future self to my current self and (3) carry myself in a confident, peaceful manner, in such a way that I KNOW I am safe and at peace, my future is safe and I will be at peace and secure, etc etc.
After I was all ready for work this morning, I had a few extra minutes, so I spent them visualizing my future, and what a great way to start the day! The rest of my day followed suit... I was happy and confident all day!
The letter to myself from my future self had to wait until after work, but what a great (and fun) idea!
I still struggled with remembering to hold/carry myself in a confident peaceful manner. Posture is hard for me, as I've had poor posture all my life and I'm now paying for it. My back and shoulders naturally curve forward now. It's a strain to force them straight and back, but my positive mood stuck with me for the remainder of the day and evening.
Today was an awesome day, and now that I've slowed down, I'm getting tired really fast. Tonight just might be an early night!
Before signing off, I thought I'd share more of my beautiful purple Irises for Earth Day...
Friday was my errand and chore day. I was suppose to be aware of my body and what messages my body may be putting out about me, a well as act out how I wanted to feel this day, but as I rushed through my chores and errands, these exercises were not included in my day. Afterwards it was time for relaxation, which happened to be Step 3, so this at least, was accomplished.
Saturday was a lazy day; I slept in late and didn't accomplish anything, including reading Soul Coaching. If I had managed to read it, I might have found some enjoyable nature focused things to do, but my laziness was all I was focused on. This day was suppose to be about awakening nature within myself.
Sunday was another lazy day as well as a low energy day, and a doozy of a headache. I felt blah... perhaps the result of entertaining too much sleep and a whole lot of nothing. This day was about ways to bring nature inside my home as well as completing a Soul Altar.
Although I did not collect anything new of nature to bring inside, my house already has many items of nature: stones and crystals, feathers, pieces of wood, petrified wood, a lava rock, a rock from my yard that I painted, dried flowers and petals, etc.
My Soul Altar includes the following: a photo of my parents, my Mom's fairy lamps, various crystals and stones a clamshell, the abundance collage I created featuring my family, a watercolor of the ocean I painted, a postcard of a wolf, a pine cone, a glass container holding feathers, a glass cat, Kwan Yin (goddess) and a happy Budha (god), a candle and a bottle of my Mom's ambergis oil perfume that you can smell just standing next to it.
I'm happy with my Soul Altar...this weekend wasn't a total waste :-)
My friend Shiela provided me with this really awesome quote...
"If you see yourself in a favorable light, if your image of yourself is pleasant, if this visual concept of yourself cannot be shaken by temporary defeats, then you have reached the goal achieved by the most fortunate. Not everyone reaches this mental state; in fact, many people do not even believe it is possible. Happiness and peace of mind are a matter of consciousness. We must create the inner-harmony we desire. This type of awareness is not an accident, it comes from study and an understanding that we are truly creative." - Bob Proctor
