Moonlighting - Overcoming Fears & Accomplishing Goals

A couple of chairs that faced the moon
The last full moon a friend invited me to do a full moon meditation. The inspiration for this came from Tom Kenyon , sound healer and his work that he calls the Sphere of All Possibilties.
You can read in detail here the steps and thought process.
My first thoughts were "Why?"  I recognize that the Lord manifests through His creation but it seems so many times the Creator is left out of these observances. I was wary. That being said I remembered that in Bhagavad Gita As It Is, the Blessed Lord says that the sun and the moon are His eyes. "Well",  I thought to myself, "He will be watching me then and being conscious of that I won't forget Him. I want to remember where my blessings come from." Two chairs were pulled up in the backyard and my friend gave a description of the steps to be taken to actually cease struggling with life by tapping into the life force that we have a literal connection to whether male or female.  In or out of the womb it can be felt. I had encountered this premise before during yoga meditations  by tapping into the Prana or via Chinese medicine which speaks of Qi. Regardless of the language used,  reconnecting to the energetic life giving force of the Universe is similar to the fetus connected to the life energy our mother's provide via the umbilical cord. It made sense. While I can't say I have experienced the dimensions that this gentleman Tom Kenyon has, I did notice on the third day of practice that a very real sensation of fear came forth from my solar plexus. That was a surprise! Is this what I want to emit and create?  I consider myself a confident person and able to do anything I set my mind to however there was no denying that I had felt fear concerning my next set of goals that I had solemnly sworn to achieve in September.

Peeling Back the Layers

And so as our mothers were pregnant with us,  so we are pregnant with ideas. The key seems to be
1. Honesty about where our ideas or beliefs about ourselves really are and not just what we say with our head.
2. Having taken self inventory getting down to the brass tacks of getting out of our own way.

The steps to doing this are not hard but the point is to do them and overcome the resistance to doing them. You know  - "The mind can be the best friend or the worst enemy of the soul."  It does what is bidden and depending what you have been practicing all your life that is what comes into play at critical moments. Diamond Director and Zumba instructor Carmen Marshall also stresses that personal development is very much a part of realizing ones hopes and dreams. She is living a gorgeous life in Bali and is living her intercontinental dream.

I Can't vs I Can

Dr. Sharon Melnick 's tag line is "Helping Successful and Talented People Get Out of Their Own Way" She shared a funny story about a self dialog while she was attempting to water ski on one leg something she hadn't done in 30 years. Feeling wobbly her initial self talk was the reinforcement of How wobbly she was feeling and How she was going to fail. Being a coach and a practitioner of her philosophy,  she quickly changed the self sabotaging babble with self confidence building dialog coupled with a clear vision of what she wanted to see happen for herself.  She calls this the I Can't vs I Can talk
 "That picture in my head and voice of self trust showed me I could stop trying so hard and let my body assume a natural position that its done before. They guided me to decide that I was going to do it, and helped me to do so."  Dr. Sharon Melnick

Finally, I offer you this quote by Abraham Hicks who have done much to set these notions rolling forward over the past two decades in a language that is easily understandable. This quote seems to sum it up for me. It's not just what I want to see happen but what I believe CAN happen right down to my very core. One of those cores is my own  solar plexus which attaches me to the umbilical cord of the Universe who graciously and lovingly provides strength and inspiration all the time. I have always thought God was kind. So kind in fact that whatever I repeatedly tell Him I want He will fulfill. As one minister I met had on her business card  "Pray Attention".

By Default, I Could Have Attracted Unwanted Relationships... Many of the relationships or experiences you have attracted you would not have deliberately attracted if you had been doing it on purpose, but much of your attraction is not done by deliberate intent, but rather by default. . . . It is important to understand that you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. And chronic thoughts about unwanted things invite, or ask for, matching experiences. The Law of Attraction makes it so.
