One of the movies the MKMMA tribe had suggested as a good flick to watch is titled “I AM”. I had discovered this movie quite some time ago and have watched it many times. The overall message is powerful, the details are so instructive.
There is a quick scene where the reality of nature being, at times, a little cruel and violent, and the laws of the wild are displayed – predator and prey. (There’s also a very cool scene later on where the power of the tribe is displayed when a rescuing wildebeest comes to the aid of one of it’s own when being attacked by a big cat.) However there are a few frames showing a snake, suddenly striking a small rodent, wrapping it in it’s coils, I’m confident, to a sure death.
This week has felt much like that at times. Old blueprints, and habits, and limiting beliefs, coiled and ready to take me down. And there have been moments, minutes, sometimes an hour or two, where I have succumbed. “It’s too much”. “I’ll never get it all done, so why do any”. “I have to, but I can’t, but I have to…” (that one’s a killer!). The list is long.
But here’s the thing – it’s early Friday morning, and I’m still here. I stood in the studio this morning in my SuperWoman stance (yes, I’m confident enough in my orientation to not have that bother me), and raised my arms over my head and said (quietly- the kids are still in bed) “I can get this done. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, harmonious (healthy) and happy. I can be what I will to be. I am a non-judgmental observer. I’ve done this before, I can do it again, even better!” I read my cards. I am grateful for all my experiences, I can see the miracles and magic in past events that were brought into reality after a simple request (humble demand).
We’re finding our footing in a foreign world. The things we’re discovering of ourselves and of the Universe that God has created and offered to all isn’t easy, or comfortable. Sometimes it feels impossible and unnatural. I would suggest that it’s so natural that if we would just get out of our own way, it would and will take our breath away.
I honour each of you – for your efforts and successes. I also honour your difficult days that might not be described as joyous or successful – for the fact that you have stumbled upon this blog post suggests that you haven’t bailed. Every day that we don’t bail is a day we have done, next, what the person we intend to become would have done.
In closing, I wish to express my deepest gratitude to those who shared their kindness and concern in their comments on last weeks post. I was whining and complaining about an upcoming surgery next week and feeling financially beat up, and at the point of writing (pre-update) was “un-PIF-able”. As is usually the case, I don’t have all the financial resources I might wish I did, but it seems I always have sufficient for my needs. Give more to get more. Wise words. Good council.
Have a stunning week, all!
