Day 21 of The 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse:

THE LIGHT OF POSSIBILITY

02/03/2011

SOUL FOOD:

I am the light of the world!”

“Bask in the glory of your most divine self.

Bask in the wisdom that you are an infinite source of love, joy, and hope for all humankind.

Bask in knowing that within you are seeds of greatness that – if consistently watered and cared for – will grow into a future that will leave this planet a better place than when you arrived.

You hold the map to the greatest expression of your own soul. You and only you have the directions programmed into your soul to deliver a life beyond your wildest dreams – a life where you and the Divine are one; a life where you are thrilled at being who you are, doing what you are doing, and contributing the gifts that only you bring . . . a life worth praying for.

Today’s intention: Complete Day 21 meditation & exercises – compassion for myself whilst facing a bright future

The primary feeling that I wish to get out of fulfilling my intention is a feeling of self love

To make it a reality in my world – today’s holy work, journal, meditate, affirmations, prayer for the future

Give up distractions

My Healing Mantra today:

“I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MY BRIGHTEST FUTURE – ONE FULL OF ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.”

With the podcast process, these were the tasks I had to complete:

  1. Make a list of where or how in your life you are currently in tune with your internal guidance system. In what situations or areas of your life do you listen closely for and trust the voice of your soul?
  2. Make a list of the situations or areas in your life where the voice of your soul is drowned out or overridden by fears, judgments or other human limitations.
  3. Take the action or put in place the practice for your internal world to help yourself tune in more fully to the voice of your soul.
  4. Handle the situation or distraction in your external world so that you’re more clear and available to receive the communication and guidance from your soul.

The LAST day of the Consciousness Cleanse!

I completed this the 2/3 as noted on top of this post but it’s taken me this long to actually post anything about it.

Why?

I guess, without realising it, I was actually going through some kind of mourning after  I completed the cleanse because I didn’t have it to keep me going everyday, to keep me motivated and keep me on track. I know that all I have to do is keep doing the things that I have learnt and make them a part of my everyday life, since it’s been working fabulously…but the key is to make sure that I do it.  I have to  be more accountable to myself.

So, on this day, I made a decision – with my plan for weight loss, which had been working so far but need the motivation and pick me up when I am down – I need support, so I have joined Weight Watchers! Last time I was with them was in 2008 – the program is great but mostly I love doing it online for the community support, it’s great! I joined since Thursday last week and I am slowly getting back to habits that I created to stay healthy. Also bought some very cheap books on the weekend that will help me with this as well.

A few situations presented themselves as lessons in the last few days, since I completed this course – situations where  I have been able to observe how much I really allow my ego to take over sometimes. I saw how I allow myself to be swallowed up by its words and images…can be quite scary in fact! But instead of staying in that fear, I have picked myself back again and I am moving on – reclaiming my power. Finding inspiration & motivation as much as possible so that I can stay on track. Forgiving myself for not meeting the high expectations I keep setting for myself. Listening to my soul – because when I don’t, oh God, the battle is unbearable between my heart and mind…so there’s no point fighting it. My heart is the winner, always wins and always will ;)

Practicing self love everyday, non-judgement towards myself and those around me, listening to my heart, following my intuition, forgiving myself, being myself, saying NO to things, foods and people that don’t serve my highest purpose – are all the lessons that have really been clear through this course.

My next plan is Marianne Williamsons 21 lessons in weight loss, which will be another amazing journey to myself – whilst undertaking my weight loss journey and igniting and firing my passions into reality :)

Thank you soooo much  for allowing me to share my reflections for the last month! I pray that sharing my gift in this blog, reaches as many people and helps as many of you come to your own higher realisations as possible –  by just reading my experiences and feeling the energy that my higher self emanates from them everyday :)

Day 20 of The 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse:

THE LIGHT OF COMPASSION

26/2/2011

SOUL FOOD:

God’s eyes are my eyes!”

“Look powerfully into the future and commit to living a devotional life – one grounded in love, care, and kindness – you open yourself up to being touched by and receiving the heart of God…making your divine heart your compass.

~Debbie Ford

Today’s intention: Complete Day 20 meditation & exercises – compassion for myself and others

The primary feeling that I wish to get out of fulfilling my intention is a feeling of love and understanding

To make it a reality in my world – today’s holy work, journal, meditate, affirmations, prayer for the future and listening to other hearts – not their ego

Give up ego driven thoughts of condemnation

My Healing Mantra today:

“MY HEART IS FULL OF COMPASSIONATE LOVE & UNDERSTANDING.”

With the podcast process, these were the tasks I had to complete:

    1. Make a list of the situations or circumstances in your own life where you are judging yourself and making yourself wrong and where you could view yourself with more compassion.
    2. Make a list of the situations in your external world where you are taking something personally or holding righteous judgments about a circumstance or person. Where in your external world could you look through the eyes of compassion?
    3. Take the action or put in place the practice that will support you in your internal world to be more compassionate with yourself and your human shortcomings.
    4. Take the action or put in place the practice or structure in your external world that will support you in developing greater levels of compassion for the humanity of others.

The weekend was a very busy one for me – as it was my daughter’s baptism on Sunday, therefore why it has taken me this long to post Day 20 of the cleanse on here. A few things have occurred over the course of last week which actually tested a lot of my compassion…especially with one of the people I chose to forgive on Day4.

Compassion actually comes all too easily to me as I have always been very sensitive to people’s emotions & energies – although the downside of that is that the sensitivity includes that of the ego as well.

The biggest situations where I should have more compassion to myself and not overly judge myself is mainly with my weight at the moment as well as my abilities to help people in the way that I wish to. I second guess myself way too much – which is actually ONE of the reasons why I am sick at the moment(been sick since Saturday).

I also have a few people that I have listed who could get a lot more compassion from me as I am overly judgemental with those people. I find that this can be almost like a disease …like a drug! I have heard myself talk about others who can suck the life out of you…which there are and they can if you allow them – but then I was reflecting a little the other day and recognised that my ego’s self righteousness can be so overpowering. It’s not until you step out of yourself that this can be seen – and sometimes, I find myself just watching the whole ego trip and have no way to stop it because I have already stepped into it and allowed it all to happen.

The general reflection for me after this exercise is that until I stop judging myself, I won’t stop judging others. Until I allow compassion for me, I can’t offer compassion to others. Therefore, compassion needs to come from the deepest love and understanding – the utmost  love and understanding, no matter what has happened.

Thank you soooo much  for reading! I pray that sharing my gift in this blog, reaches as many people and helps as many of you come to your own higher realisations as possible –  by just reading my experiences and feeling the energy that my higher self emanates from them everyday :)
