Guiding Thought

Today I erase all I think I know of my Inner Divine Mind. I am changing. I am changed. All is new. With a blank slate of pure luminescence, I wait, simply feeling my inner glow.


I want this. I invite this. I welcome this!

I allow myself to change, to become more attuned to my Self, more aligned with my Self, and more congruent with my Highest Purpose.

As I wait and watch my Highest Purpose appear in my activities as people and circumstances, I breathe, I smile, and I live.



Holy crap, it’s only Day 08, and this Journey has already been waaayyyy intense.

I started on Day 01 talking about inertia and the energy required in overcoming impediments to movement or to a directional change. Day 02 was about one of my most difficult impediments to overcome: loving myself more (and more and more). Day 03 was about how to overcome that impediment: surrender! Let my own Loving Presence BE the love I am. Then what happens? I love as One (Myour, Day 04). Day 05, I actually wake up and realize that I am going through a process–this is all part of it; you would think I would be used to that by now… Day 06 and Day 07 are almost like…once I realized on Day 05 I was in a process I began resisting, and trying to figure out what it all means (and being in “Its flow”, rather than in “my” flow). So today is perfectly timely. I have to remind myself that I want this (“stop resisting”; “go with it”).

For about a week now, a bunch of stuff about flow has been crossing my path. Flow is generally understood as that feeling of complete involvement in an activity, where time passes like nothing, where focus and involvement meet absolute peace and contentment. At least, that’s how I feel, when I describe myself being in the flow.

But this Journey…it has a flow of its own that is like nothing I can describe. It’s like my normal flow has increased, and instead of a gentle, gliding experience, I am riding the rapids. Complete involvement? Yes! Peace and contentment? Yes! But with a lot more “whooaaaa, I need to hold on!”

That’s why today’s Guiding Thought feels like such a great reminder (they ALL have so far!). I WANT THIS. It may not be what I thought it was supposed to be, it surely isn’t something I expected; I have no idea what is going on, but dammit, here I am…and I have to remind myself I ASKED for this. I WANT this. THIS is how we change.

And this ALL refers back to Day 01: I am changing my inertia…intentionally. I am shifting directions; I am moving differently. Of course it feels like rapids: it is.
