We MADE IT TO MONDAY!!!
I LOVE Mondays don’t you?!
(you will by the end of this Thrilling, action packed, “Mind Mastery Daily” Episode)
I have a pretty big story to tell you, which I’m going to just look into the video camera and speak to you. It will flow easier that way… Then I have some thoughts after that with your Daily Mind Mastery “Transformation Take Away”
What you are about to watch is the demonstration of the long term effects of focusing on what you want…
(So hopefully you watched the whole video… If you haven’t, please go ahead and do that. I kept it as short as possible because I know you probably think you’re too busy to take the time to watch it. But it sets up everything I say below so please give it a shot. :o)
Ok. So. Yeah, I’m starting to trust this…
this life thing. I’m putting the techniques into practice every single day and they seem to be cumulatively working.
Donnie Epstein said, there are only two things in life we can control.
- What we focus on.
- And the meaning we attach to what we focus on.
And that’s what I’ve been saying’ for years now perhaps in different words. And what the wizards and sorcerers and Mages and saints and Brujos, Shamans, Medicine Men, and witches (the good kind) have been saying forever.
It is a basic human truth that our culture seems to do it’s best to gloss over or ignore or outright condemn because it’s not good for business.
Most people are miserable and stressed out, so they try to soothe it with buying things that they THINK will make them happy.
But if they just owned their response-ability to make themselves happy at any given moment by focusing their mind on something that actually makes them happy, They wouldn’t need to spend money on something that they don’t need now.
That would really fvck up the economy if more than a fraction of the population actually did it.
That’s why it’s revolutionary.
What if everybody refused to eat meat that was full of antibiotics and growth hormones? Well 80% of the income pharmaceutical companies generate from ALL antibiotics is from factory farming sales… That would be bad for their business model… So they will do everything they can to preserve their income stream no matter what the cost to you or the environment.
What if everybody turned off the mainstream media and stopped the constant bombardment of holiday advertising, not to mention stopped listening to the “bad” news spinners at CNN, Fox News and even NPR?
What if you didn’t have to buy Christmas presents for all of your relatives? And what if they didn’t have to buy any for you?
What if you all agreed to just enjoy each other’s company for the holidays?
Or if you don’t enjoy each other’s company, be able to say with love. “Hey, I love you AND this year, I’m going to give myself a trip to Cancun for the holidays… (Just saying’).
So do whatever you want to do but let’s stop doing things that we kind of resent doing. Let’s only do things that we truthfully, congruently want to do.
Otherwise we’ve given away our power, failed to own our “stuff” and placed an unpleasant burden on the other people in our lives.
I used to do things that I didn’t really want to do all the time. I didn’t want to hurt other people’s feelings. and So guess what? I was a fake and a phony. And I was filled with frustration and resentment. Yuck.
Do you want someone to hang out with you who doesn’t really want to?
NO! It’s a drag! :o)
and by the same token, If you don’t want to hang out with me, I would prefer that you go do what YOU want to do. Make yourself happy! When you are happy, you’re a lot more fun to be around. Does that make sense?
Your take away today is to pay attention to where you’re focus is going. Are you focusing on what’s right in your life? or what’s wrong? When we focus on what’s right, it expands. When we focus on what isn’t right, THAT expands.
Are you focusing on what you don’t want? Or are you holding a steady vision of what you DO want for your life? For the people you love? For the planet?
Choose your focus carefully.
This takes conscious attention. And guess what? practicing focusing on what you appreciate and love and are grateful for and desire more of, gives energy to that.
I heard someone a long time ago say, “Feed the Faith. Starve the Doubt”.
Pop that into a Why question and you’ve got something that can actually change your bio-chemistry! “Why do I feed the faith and starve the doubt?”
or even better, how about, “Why do I feed the faith?”
Forget about the doubt. FAH-GET ABOWT IT!
The next thing you have complete power over is to interpret whatever happens as being a perfect unfoldment of events. A perfect gift. “Pronoia” (the opposite of Paranoia), this funny feeling that somehow, some way, the Universe is conspiring to support you.
So interpret everything, every event, every emotion, every physical challenge, every “problem” as something that is for your good. EVERYTHING.
Even tho it may not at first appear to be to your benefit, it IS. And it will definitely be to your benefit if you actually are willing to BELIEVE that it is to your ultimate benefit.
We have the power to choose our focus and to choose the meaning we attach to everything in our lives.
That’s it. The secret to happiness.
1. Focus on what makes you happy. Focus on the fact that you already ARE happy.
2. Interpret that to me that you actually ARE happy. Right Now.
Ok? Got it? Any questions?
Boom! I’ll see you on the inside!
