Whatever the financial situation you are currently in, it is one that you have brought into reality through your thoughts. If it is not what you want, then you have created it unconsciously, but still you created it. When you can see this you will understand how powerful you are at creating. And now all you have to do is create what you want, consciously!
From The Secret Daily Teachings by Rhonda Byrne
And this is probably the most difficult thing to accept that the “lack” of abundance (and other things) in my life are result of my thoughts, when it is so easy to blame things and persons on the outside when the outside is just a mirror of all my emotionally charged and predominant thoughts and thinking. And to allow those things on the outer to further affect my thoughts and emotions which only keep that “lack” vibration active.
And now learning today that I need eye surgury to repair a partially detached retina, the “how am I going to pay for this?” thoughts were predominant in my mind as the doctor was explaining the what happened to cause this and what needs to be done to repair the damage. Of course the challenge has to be to stil try to feel good and was not havingmuch success, so I did what Abraham suggests and I came home and took a nap. But then had to overcome the feeling of loneliness as I laid trying to take a nap because knowing that I will be home alone after the surgery, not that I have not had to have done this before but it does suck to be alone during times like this. So I tried to “feel” how I would feel not only having the money to cover this and ANY expense/need but also how I would feel to have that Love my heart hungers for that truly knows and loves me as I am but also be a much needed positive influence in my life….and not drag me emotionally and financially down in the pit of despair as so many others have done.
But now in spite of all that is happening and has been happening I must find ways to think and feel better, find my way there in my thoughts….
A cousin has posted an invitation for a long overdue family reunion in a resort and spa in Mexico but I much apprehension about saying YES I will be there, in fact I feel much reservation. And I know where this comes from, I am seeing it from where I am now financially, even though this trip and reunion is a year away, and know once on the path MUCH can happen and change in a year but I still find the “What is-itis” of now trying to keep me “stuck” here and thus my hesitation in accepting the invitation knowing how much I would enjoy this trip, seeing family I have not seen in many years and being able to get away for a much needed vacation.
I remember a time when I would be very excited and say “let’s go!”, now I feel a bit apprehensive and hesitant and allowing the “how can I afford this?” thoughts to dominate but at least I recognize and acknowledge this and know what I need to work on and travel there mentally and emotionally so I can be there phycially and not worry about or stress over the “how”. I do tend to stress too much over the “how” and the “when” and need to just turn my focus to seeing and “feeling” beyond this!
If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place. ~ Lao-tzu
Needed this message when I woke up this morning, would have reminded me the “tune out” the Monday morning moodiness especially after spending all my weekend working and no time for myself….again!
Currently sitting here in “eye dialation central” at the eye doctor for a problem with vision in my right eye, a problem that I am sure is a result of stress and incorrect thinking and I know this along with all the undesired (dis-ease) things in my life can be healed!
The time a friend interrupted my depression to tell me that I could choose to be happy was the time I got angry and walked away from the friendship. Eventually, I discovered that choosing to be happy meant that if I was willing, I could take off the blinders I had been wearing. I learned to make room for more light. I found my depression was a kind of filter that distorted things. I had been seeing eyes as a source of tears instead of windows to the soul.
As I allowed myself to see more life, I found that there was much more to see than I had imagined. I had a profound awakening. I saw that both depression and happiness are decisions we make that create the conditions we live in. I also discovered that many of the decisions were small ones and hardly noticeable. It wasn’t until I added up all my little decisions about life that I discovered I had built a wall separating me from much of it. I suspect that, at the time, living behind a wall had some value. I just didn’t realize I was doing so.
Your thoughts are things that create the condition of your life. Choose your thoughts wisely, for you are the architect of your happiness. You are always building walls or gardens, opening or closing off to life.
Happiness is not something accidental that happens to me. Happiness is the result of my thinking.

If you are complaining, the law of attraction will powerfully bring into your life more situations for you to complain about. If you are listening to someone else complain and focusing on that, sympathizing with them, agreeing with them, in that moment, you are attracting more complaining situations to yourself!
And how TRUE this is! I “catch” myself during the course of the day complaining how tired I am and invariably I will find myself laying in bed unable tp sleep in spite of being tired. I “talk” about how busy work is and the work load and projects needing to be done has been steadily increasing faster than I can complete any of these tasks or projects, which also lead to sleepless nights which lead to being more tired. I find myself in a mental dialog of how people think I am their personal ATM and how I keep trying explain I got my own obligations I need to meet and take care of but the pleas continue. So many times during the day I just want to “tune” all of this out and let my thoughts drift to a happier place and better feelings….guess that’s why I am doing work today at the second job that does not require much thought or concentration and listening to music to help ease the irritability I have been feeling ever since I got up this morning. It is intersting to watch how quickly ones day can spiral downward when you are irritable but things have finally started to settle down some but still have a ways to go…..
It does not matter what path you take, but it does matter if the path you are taking is something that you are believing is appropriate. Nothing is more damaging to you than to do something that you believe is wrong.

And this unfortunately is something that I have paid a high price for (and in some cases STILL) paying the price from allowing “others” to dictate the path I chose which was for their own selfish reasons and didn’t listen to and follow my heart but listened and followed them into the underbrush and swamp! Now I am trying to follow my Spiritual GPS and get my life and myself back on track….”recalculating”….
We would focus on everything that mattered to us. It is so satisfying to hold a thought and to find the feeling place and then see the Universe conspire to help you receive it. Oh, co-creation at its best.

I get the feeling the Universe is subtley trying to tell me something as far as the timing of these messages. But unfortunately I allow myself to get so caught up in the day to day chaos and work demands that I find myself missing some of these messages or their deeper meaning not felt or see or how they apply at that moment but stopping and making time to go back over the past couple of days quotes I say to myself bow the hell did I miss this? Maybe I just was not ready for it or my vibration was so out of sync with the message that it was just words at that time but now their deeper meaning is seen.
Finding AND holding on to a desired thought is one challenge just due to the increasing work demands and other “challenges” but aside from that the feeling good in absence of having what is desired is biggest challenge for me.
There was a time in my life when I was happy: I had money in the bank, bills were paid on time, no stress, work was reasonable and didn’t have to work a second job. I had Love in my life and it was a love where there was no effort, it existed and had a life of its own where no thought was needed to do the right things to let the other know they were loved, it just flowed and all was well. Then one day I woke up and there was no money in the bank, debts increased, the love that I had searched my life for was taken from me by another and my life spiraled downward and then as if that were not enough my mother lost her battle with a tumor that was literally feeding on what she ate. And I know I am still trying to rebuild and remake myself from all of this while remnants of these dark days continue to resurrect themselves in my life and affairs. And there are days I just want to say “fuck it” I am done because I feel so exhausted BUT I know there is a “Little Man” that needs his daddy and his daddy has to be an living example for this “Little Man” so he can grow up to be Good and Happy “Big Man” so I press on forward and hopefully amd eventually upward out of this pit of despair that is my life now… But I know all can be made right again as it should be….I need to dig and find again those feelings I once knew and bring them back to the surface so that sun can again shine in my life and the life of my son once just two of us are back together!
The buffer of time gives you the opportunity to get it right before it manifests, to take pleasure from the vision and from the molding it into place… Can you imagine if everything was manifesting instantly? You would manifest this, and then you would manifest it away. And then you’d manifest that, and then… It would be a difficult thing if you were instantly manifesting every whim or every misaligned thought. It’s so much better that you have this buffer of time where you can feel it into perfection before it manifests into your experience.

Playing a bit of catch up from earlier in the week where work has been keeping me busier and busier (Wednesday & Thursday didn’t even get time to stop to eat lunch). But this quotation just happened to be on a morning that I overslept (hit the wrong button on the alarm clock) and during that over-sleeping time I had an emotional dream about my son, so emotional that this is what woke me up with tears in my eyes and then more tears when I realized it was just a dream and my son was not here with me. Which brings to the subject of that buffer in time tp manifestation which is understood…but…there are those times when the heart hungers so much for something, in this case someone! The emotions from the absence of my son unfortunately far outweigh any good feeling of how I would feel with him here, something, yes needs much work otherwise the obstacles to bringing him home to his daddy will only continue to mount up! But wonder what it would be like for the emotional energy so deep and powerful that a desire could manifest in near instantaneous time. And how part of me wishes to find and know hat depth of emotion, faith and desire. But as much as I want him here daddy knows things are not yet right here, to bring him home and care for him and spend time with him as I desire. For I always tell him in the daily videos that I make for him that daddy wants things right for him, to be free of the debt, the taxes, (it appears one gets “punished” in addition taxes for working a second job???) and have a backyard for him to run around and play in and be free of the endless long work days and working weekends to spend much needed leisure time with him, showing him things, taking him places my father took me and just having fun! And since that last emotionally charged dream this has been weighing heavy on my heart and my thoughts, trying to push past it to the better feelings of the times I desire to spend together with him.
Let your alignment (with Well-Being) be first and foremost, and let everything else be secondary. And not only will you have an eternally joyous journey, but everything you have ever imagined will flow effortlessly into your experience. There is nothing you cannot be or do or have—but your dominant intent is to be joyful. The doing and the having will come into alignment once you get that one down.

Good message to start the day with…even though work at both jobs and everything and everyone else makes demands of me I MUST still put ME first for I am no good to work or everyone else if I am “dragging ass” mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually! And that is and how I have been feeling and I know these physical problems creeping up are because of this. So trying to pull back a little a regain some of my control and turn some of that energy and focus back to where it needs to be…
