All week I have had this blog post on my mind, about getting it “right.” I realize that there is no right with this – it is a personal thing. What I am talking about is what my tribe and I call the woohoo. The unknown yet known; the forces we can’t describe, however we know they are there. The belief – God, Universe, Nature, Soul, Energy – or whatever an individual believes in.
I honestly don’t know what I believe in. I have a combination of a whole lot of things. If you ask me, I am not very articulate about it, yet I do know there is something. I feel it when I am recharging by the ocean, spending time gardening, or when I just let the quiet take me.
Intention, Attention, No tension
I do believe if you cannot envision what you want, what you dream, what you crave, it cannot happen. You need to be open to it coming to you. You may not know the details – that will come – you need the big picture. If you can see it in your mind, it triggers something that opens the possibility. When you make space – letting go of things physically or mentally – it allows for more to come. Think about it: if you focus on the negative, that is what you get. If you focus on the positive, the opportunities are endless.
Years ago, when I did the passion test training, I learned about intention, attention, no tension. Have the intention (see it, know it, believe it), attention (throw everything you got at it, do the work and go for it) then let go. You did what you needed to do, now believe in what you did and see what happens. This has really stuck with me, and I use it often.
Putting it out there
We all know people who have had things, opportunities or events happen to them, and they can’t explain why, they say things like, “I just put it out there.” Last Friday, I was at an event, and my friend Sherry won a weekend away. She said, “On the way here I hoped I would win the prize.” Lucky maybe, yet I think it was more about putting it out there.
For me, once I admit to things, change seems to happen. I am careful with what I put out into the universe. This was the case a few years ago when I told my good friend about being stuck in a marriage that I knew wasn’t right for me. Once I said it out loud, things changed, I couldn’t keep it a secret anymore. I was compelled to deal with it. (And to my relief when I spoke to my ex about it, he felt the same way.)
I know that there is an inner stirring, not that voice in your head, something behind it, the one that murmurs to us. It shares secrets locked away in what I think is our soul. It loves us, leads us, and connects us to others and to ourselves. It knows others – I believe good friends aren’t made they are found, that feeling when you meet someone, and you know them. One of my closest friends lives half a world away. We met by chance but from that moment on we are connected. Ironically, he is the one I spoke to about my marriage – funny the way things happen.
Mindful with your thoughts and words
I don’t have an answer, yet I do know that I am mindful with my words and my thoughts. As a reformed control freak, there is still a part of me that wants to know the answers, but I know that it will never happen. I do think that my soul craves and I keep learning, seeking, and living what comes.
As I finish this, I look down at my journal, and on the cover, it says – Think in Magic.
