Week one of the prosperity experiment has just ended. It was a week sprinkled with some nice surprises and some surprises that have called me to deepen as well.
Today’s the first day I can spend some money for something other than necessities.
Interesting thing is: I’m not itching to do that. Nice to know that I can, yet I’ve been surprised by how easy it has been to make different choices this week. This week it will be time to begin reviewing recurring charges to see if there are any I want to release.
I am liking the open-ness and receptivity that have awakened around money during this week.
That’s not to say there haven’t been some challenges in the last few days:
Some major business deals we thought were coming through in the last several weeks have yet to materialize. So I’m releasing attachment to form.
Many of the people I love are dealing with major challenges to their faith right now. No need to go into the stories.
And then, on Monday we found out Bridget will need heart surgery this spring. We’ll be scheduling it for May.
I’m feeling grateful for all the cleansing I’ve done this past month because the deep inner work is giving me the tools I need to create magic and miracles. That’s what I came here for, right? A grand adventure, a chance to remember that I’m a co-creator in an awesome multiverse…
Last night I went to my Celtic spirituality group and we did a meditation with the GoddessBrigid/St. Bridget for her feast of Imbolc, which is just a few days away. Brigid governs healing, inspiration and smithcraft. In the guided meditation we were asked to visualize Brigid molding a beautiful bronze object in her creative fire. What I saw was that I was the craft being purified and molded in the fire of my life. This week, all of the people most dear to me: David, Maddie, Bridget and my Mom are carrying heavy burdens. My natural tendency is to want to fix it all for them, to make it ok. But my vision made it clear that DOING in the outer world is not in resonance with my soul right now.
Brigid showed me that my task for the moment is to go inside. To seek guidance moment to moment. To hold on to my inner vision, no matter how chaotic the outer world may appear. And to act only when I am inspired by the clarity I receive from deepening into my Essential Self.
So I keep asking myself the two questions: 1) who do I want to be? 2) what would that person do, right now?
I want to be the person who is awed by her capacity for joy, who awakens to the wonder of being alive, who creates magic and miracles wherever she goes. So I’m called to be authentic, to be tender with myself, to dig deep, to trust in the benificence of the Universe, to let joy bubble up in me and then share it with everyone I touch.
I know I’m one of millions today holding fast to my center as the world around me seems to crumble. And I’m trusting that everything that’s happening….EVERYTHING…in my own life and in the culture at large… contains a portal to my heart’s deepest desires, to OUR deepest desires.
Today I’m breathing and releasing attachment to form and throwing myself into the arms of the infinite.
Because, as Marianne Williamson says, “the only thing wrong with this picture is that you think there’s something wrong with this picture.”
If you want to send prayers and healing to Bridget, we welcome it! Please picture her having fun in Ireland with us next summer! You have my heartfelt appreciation.
Sending you peace, joy, love, wisdom and abundance,
PS A number of people have asked me to resend the information on the Ireland trip. A few spaces remain…we’re going in July. Thinking about this makes me happy! If you want to find out more just go to www.KimberlySchneider.com/trips
