At the onset of my new life, back in December, I began by making myself a To Do list to track the tasks I needed to accomplish and to give myself little pats on the back for completing them. For the most part, this has worked well.
This week, however, I realized that the list was only halfway to my goal. This week, just by happenstance, I set intentions for what I wanted to accomplish each day. For example, Tuesday was for completion of a client’s 2013 records. Wednesday was errands and starting on my homework, as well as going to the gym. Thursday was set aside for finishing my homework.
What I have discovered is that when I set an intention for a day instead of just a list for the week, things happen! In fact, I found myself thinking yesterday that I should check in with Covered California regarding my health insurance today. Before I could even log into the site, I received a phone call from a very helpful young lady named Megan who walked me through what had gone wrong, made the necessary changes and came up with a much better plan than I had for myself!
While reading my assigned chapter last night, I looked ahead to see how many pages I had to read, and gave myself permission to take a break when I reached the halfway point. The next thing I knew was that I had finished the whole chapter!
This morning, I sat down at my desk and did my usual morning administrative stuff (email, check facebook, see how my blog is doing, etc.), drank my cup of coffee and ate my carton of yogurt. I then proceeded to work on the homework questions and found that I’d completed the ones requiring short answers fairly quickly. As I had watched all of the required videos over the course of the week, I turned next to the reading in our handouts and found that I made a great deal of progress, and was quite focused.
In the midst of my reading, I realized that Dylan wasn’t nearby as he had been yesterday. Almost before the thought was fully formed, he was on my desk, belly in the air, making certain I knew that he was, most certainly there with me, just as he was wrapped around my head, purring, when I awoke this morning.
The short description for this rather lengthy story is that the more I put thoughts out to the Universe about accomplishing certain things, the more they happen, either through my own efforts, or through things aligning to get the assistance I need to make them happen.
Driving to my classmate’s house for our practice healing session, I suddenly felt very empowered and full of Divine Feminine Energy. This feeling persisted until about 8:00 or 8:30 this evening when, suddenly, I felt as if my plug had been pulled and the energy had escaped. Still, I stayed and danced a bit more before bidding my friends adieu and heading for home. I’m not sure if it was another person’s sudden negative energy rattling my empathic side, or if the full moon had suddenly made itself felt.
Either way, I’ve given myself permission to play hermit tomorrow, if that is what it turns out I need. I have some cleaning projects which could be done with no outside contact so I won’t feel completely unproductive. It might even be the Valentine’s Day energies awakening the side of me which, admittedly, longs for a little attention, and needs no reminders from an overpriced holiday to stir up its own mini storm in my life. But I have my industrial sized shop vac with which I can clean out the crud in my energy field, so those chunks of muck won’t hang around for long! Busy hands are happy hands, or so I’ve heard, so perhaps cleaning out closets and finding more things to declutter is simply what I need right now!
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for antidotes to negativity which are always at my fingertips.
2. I am grateful for the completion of the week’s required projects which makes room for a few optional ones of my own choosing.
3. I am grateful for friends who distract me when I need it.
4. I am grateful for busy days ahead to build up my store of positive energy.
5. I am grateful for my alone time which allows me to assess, regroup and allow.
Love and light.
