Kicking the Tires of April 12 2019

I am very taken by yesterday’s Abraham quotation:

Fear only exists when you do not understand that you have the power to project thought and that the Universe will respond.

Today, I am experimenting with projecting my thought, and allow the Universe to respond. Daily, I become more intensely aware of general tone of disapproval and criticism that colors my thoughts. I feel a strong desire to shift my vibrational set point to one more established in satisfaction, happiness and joy. It does require effort, but the effort required is minimal-once I become aware that my thoughts are generating bad feelings.

Satisfying Rich and Deep Sleep

What a wonderful sleep I had last night; I wore my sleep mask, and had earplugs in my ears. That was secondary to my decision to set aside my Ipad and my Iphone. I didn’t read, I didn’t watch movies. My sleep was richly satisfying, and free from cares.

Monitoring Thoughts and Feelings

Nevertheless, I quickly drifted into thoughts that were creating an unpleasant mood mixed with anger, criticism and self-righteousness. It shocks me to grasp that I thought that was a normal and acceptable way of living my life.

I am giving myself kudos for catching that feeling and retreating from it to look at photos and read a few pages of an absolutely aweful book. The book at least distracted me enough from the momentum of the earlier mood in a way that alllowed my “cork to float.” Right now I am feeling pretty happy.

Can I believe that I allowed myself to project feelings, and say things that were not only lacking harmony, but would diminish somebody’s happiness in having a dog.

What do I Want?

Generally speaking, I want harmony in every hour of my days. Specifically I want happy experiences with little dog Bailey, in a way that enhances my day in many ways without interfering with my time, and my focus, and my projects.

Happiness is a little dog

Managing Thoughts and Feelings

I am a long way from where I want to be; oops I prefer saying I am making forward progress improving the vibration of my set point. Happily, I am becoming more attentive to the way I feel. I am convinced my emotions indicate the state of my alignment with the joy of living. It has been an eye-opening education to see clearly and feel directly the extent of my negative and critical thinking and the overall unhappiness of my general mood. On the up side, I can teach that old dog of myself new tricks and change the tone and tenor of my thoughts and the resulting feelings. It is by my direct experience that I subscribe to point of view that creation is the product of attraction.

Single-Minded Focus

This morning, I read an excerpt of Melinda Gates’ book Lift. This book added more fuel to my vision that all things can be accomplished through sustained focus upon a single simple and well-defined objective. It does not matter what you pick because concentrated focus upon that subject naturally expands and becomes more inclusive within the focus. In fact, the focus remains single-minded but expands naturally, the same way that the seed of a crystal maintains its structure and clarity as it grows.

Today’s Focus

My focus for today is this: pick something then concentrate my attention on it.


After Twenty Minutes of Worry, Think About  Something Else

Feels better thinking about something else

This morning I realized that I am wasting energy AND distracting myself by mulling an issue over and over and going nowhere. This has been going round and round for twenty minutes, and I am feeling worse and worse without any result.

At issue is the thought “too much of my time is absorbed by another’s perceived need.” In short, I have a beef Genny’s demands on my time. This feels lousy, and I want to feel better. One thing I feel sure: broaching the subject to Genny, and “laying down the law” about the amount of my time she can have in a day will not produce an outcome that I want.

What do I want? I want to dedicate more time to my income generating projects while at the same time, I want Genny to continue visiting her “ladies” in safety and comfort. I want what I want, and I want Genny to have what she wants. Experience tells me that both of us can have what we want, if I don’t get my knickers in a twist.

I believe (and I experience has provided validation) there is a solution in the vortex. My poor brain is not capable on its own, so I am dumping this issue in the  “the manager’s lap” lock, stock and barrel.

Today, I am not allowing one more thought about this to last as much as 17 seconds. Today, I make the best of whatever comes along: furthermore, I am going to milk as much fun as possible out of this day.
