It was an interesting week for me. I had an aha moment driving around with the radio off and realized that I was seeing the shapes and colors much easier and was concentrating on the exercise and getting better results without the “noise” of the radio. I can’t believe I hadn’t done that before….duh!
Visualizing during my sit is still challenging. I am still getting blurred pictures. Every once in a while I will get some clarity, but more often than not it is a struggle. I’ve thought of cheating and looking at the dream board occasionally during the sit to get my brain back on track, but don’t want to cheat the process. Staying focused for 8 seconds is truly a challenge and I am taking it one step at a time…baby steps, but it is still progress.
I still love the Chapter we are reading right now on “LOVE”. I just light up when I start reading the first sentence of the chapter: “I will greet this day with love in my heart”. What a great way to start the day and put me in the right frame of mind to keep a positive attitude and a smile on my face. I really do believe that people totally respond to our attitude and a smile; I know I do.
One of my main goals in the class is get rid of the negative thinking and attitude that I seemed to fall in to too quickly in the past. If I have negative thinking I will always have negative results. So positive thinking and attitude are what I am striving for on a daily basis.
The exercise of not offering an opinion has been totally crazy for me and I am starting to catch myself before I blow it. I have not made it a full day yet without having to start over, but am doing my best to get this done.
I finally completed my dream board this week and love it. This board represents my dreams of who I am becoming and the life I will be living in such a very short time. I must keep this in mind when I am struggling with the process. The work is so VERY worth the time and effort I am putting in to become the person I want to be.
When I first started the exercise of repeating “just do it” 75 times/day, I thought it was a little crazy. I am usually not a procrastinator and didn’t really think the exercise would necessarily help me. I am finding that it Is getting easier for me to stay on task now so the exercise seems to be working for me….AHA moment.
