In all dreams and ambition, you have to start somewhere. My somewhere is right smack in the middle of my ears, in this little head of mine- where the magic all begins....
It started as a child. I had an insatiable appetite for imagination. I lived in a fantasy land of sorts, with my best friend Marisa Myers by my side every step of the way. We wrote. We wrote with fervor, every day. We'd rarely finish a story, but that's okay, we were only 7. Fast forward 27 years. I sit at my computer. It's Saturday. I've been up since 5 am, drinking black coffee, tussling over how to manifest my dreams. I'm feeling stuck, like I can't break through to where I want so badly to be.
I want to feel successful. I want to feel confident in the fact that I am achieving what I've set my mind to accomplish. It's not so simple. I feel like I'm not making progress and not able to break past this invisible wall. Have you ever felt like this? If so, what did you do to break through?
I've often heard the saying " You need to have a break down in order to have a break through." How many breakdowns does one need before they opt for something new? I can tell you this, I'm not there yet. However, I've also heard the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results...... I keep trying. I can't justify giving up. I'd spend the rest of my life wondering, what if????
So here I go again, I'm manifesting my own destiny (or so I've heard). This is my vision for 2016 and beyond..... and God, if you can hear me, if this is meant to be, if it's in your grand plan, I pray you help me.
In 2016, I am.....
I am debt free, with complete financial security.
I have multiple streams of residual income that allow me to make choices based on desire. I am truly blessed and love my life.
The perfect sponsors have offered with open arms, to support and back my cooking/lifestyle show- Organicopia.
By the end of 2016, a larger network will pick up Organicopia and we will be a household name by 2017.
I love to write cookbooks, do DIY projects around the house and garden- all while getting paid to live the life I love.
I raise chickens, honeybees and live off the land as much as possible, jarring my food from the spring and summer months for winter.
I am healthy, happy, and doing what I love. I get paid to do what I love.
I am the next Martha Stewart.
I AM making this world a better place, through food.
~ Up above is a picture of my God Box. It's what I put my dreams, hopes, aspirations, goals, plans, worries, doubts, fears and insecurities in. ~
How to make a God box
Take a box of your liking (shoe box, box from u-haul, cereal box, whatever your lil' heart desires)
Find old magazines that you don't want as keepsakes
Using sissors and glue, cut out words and pictures that express what your higher power means to you. Maybe you want this to be your dream box- put your dreams and hopes on this box instead.
As you go through your year, put your thoughts inside this box and let it go. It's a way to "Let go and let God" as I like to say. I know it sounds hippie dippie, but I can't tell you how many times I've done this over the years and I get exactly what I want.... and conversely, when I have worries or doubts, I put them in the box and forget them as well, I give them up to my HP and things always have a way of working themselves out.
~ In conclusion, I started this post feeling rather drab. I was sitting at my pity party, population 1 when all of the sudden, I remembered my God box. I pulled it out, found some inspiration and shared it with you. I feel better, isn't that what it's all about, really?
~ I hope you all find your inspiration, find your strength and faith (whatever it looks like) and however you go about manifesting your dreams. This is just one way I like to reach out to the universe to pull me through my weakest moments.
I sure hope you all have a lovely, rainy, dreary and quiet Saturday afternoon. I hope you find your bliss and run with it. 🙂
