The past two days have offered up some very interesting contrast. First a call from someone who made my blood pressure rise. Then a terse conversation with my dad that didn’t feel to great. Finally, noticing that I’ve literally been unconscious the past week. Now the clarity. The way I react to the person who makes my pressure increase is all on me. They are just being themselves. I am the one who reacts to who they are being. And for dad, well, I can totally see why he responds to me the way he does. I trigger something, that…
Today I allowed a conversation to get me out of whack. It was bizarre. In the same moment, I was IN the conversation, and WITNESSING the conversation. Standing in both places felt crappy. The breakthrough came when I realized that I could shift my thinking and clear my energy, instantly. In that moment, I was free. I am grateful to have access to these understandings and tools. Just need to keep putting them in practice.
I woke up this morning and realized that for things in motion, there is no such thing as going from point A to point B in a straight line. Think about it. Even drag racers, whose JOB it is to go from point A to point B as fast, and straight as possible, wiggle all over the place when you watch their run in slow-mo. It’s intriguing, really. Well, as least it’s intriguing to me. As I look back from where I am here at the Midpoint, I can see that nothing – nothing – I intended to go from…
The more I pay attention, the more I am amazed at the little signs and suggestions that reinforce I am on the path… this happen to you too?
It’s so easy to make an impression on people. My secret sauce? Be kind. That’s it. Enough said.
The more I fill my mind with the wisdom of David Hawkins, the more empty my mind has become. Remarkable.
the Contribution Game as a powerful way to shift peoples’ thinking from an inward “I gotta get what I want to be happy” to an outward “in helping others what I want comes to me naturally.” I know this to be true
You bet. Those of us at the midpoint know that life is so much easier when you have a signature something you can whip up in an hour or less. Brie, grapes and crackers is one of my favorites…. grab a fabulous platter and you’re on your way. (Don’t forget to write your name on a piece a tape and stick it on the bottom of your dish. I used to think that was tacky. Now I think it’s practical. But I really like my platters.)
By this time, us Midpointers have a little road behind us. We’ve witnessed our friends, ourselves, maybe even our parents get their heart’s broken. I remember the first time this happened to me (after 5th grade, of course) I was so stunned that the life I thought I was moving toward wasn’t going to happen. I remember three months of pain. Physical pain. The second time the pain was less. The third time I was profoundly sad, and then the light bulb went off. “Kristen, get off it. You have so many lives to touch. Spending another 10 minutes grieving…
