Blogging is So New To Me : So Much So, That Were It Not A Requirement for This Whole MKMMA Process, I KNOW (without a doubt) I Would Not Do It.
In Week 2 I wrote ‘Habits. Changing Habits. Like many, like few – I choose to do what I know I must, in order to become.’
Committing to the requirement for changing habits (the law of substitution) has been an interesting and challenging process – to say the least. Recognising triggers, patterns and personal responses (all whilst processing the by-product of my newly acquired subconscious reprogramming) has been enlightening – applying the whole #MarkJ-Gold of R2A2 (Recognise, Relate, Assimilate, Apply) has never been more ‘front of mind’ for me. Talk about an awakening!
‘I will greet this day with love in my heart . But how will I react to the actions of others? With Love.’
What can I share with you? This proved to be one hell of a challenge for me this week – that is to say, in the immediate ‘reaction response’ phase, at the very least.
I had four (4) major events over the past 8 days which required all of my energy and focus but which also drained me (completely – energetically, emotionally and/or physically). Whilst I experienced mindful awareness of the processes as each unfurled itself, I gave myself permission to acquiesce to the very real emotions, as each surfaced, acknowledging in a curiously conscious way that each felt need of expression had its place but that I could ultimately influence and, thereby alter, the impactfull outcome from the entire experience.
WOW! And I mean, ‘Oh My Giddy Aunt!! WOW!!’
In ‘giving myself’ permission to be, without the critical self-talk and damaging self-chastisement, I was able to ‘process, react (manage, mourn, celebrate and complete my obligation) and move forward’. Disconnecting personally from my emotional reaction and thereby applying the skill of R2A2 (as mentioned above)… this is not to say I didn’t feel – but rather, to suggest that I saw, I felt and (just as importantly), I conquered!!
I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I confront each whom I meet? In only one way. In silence and to myself I will address him and say I Love You. “
Challenging, but so worth it. (The Law Of Substitution, Yeah?)
And Loving Each of Whom I Meet – and honouring that connection, in the process – doesn’t mean losing my self love, or being less ‘of service’ to myself! Instead, rather, I acknowledge that the pathways and journeys of others are not always aligned with our own – but that my love for that person, in that moment, and collectively, means that I can empower them, and as an immediate by-product, organically empowering myself.
I am grateful for this journey of self-guided discovery and direction. I am grateful for stretching my boundaries, breaking through my comfort zone and learning to trust that I am better than I believed, more deserving than I had considered and have much purpose to fulfil.
Yes, I am blessed and grateful for my life, and all who are in it – and the experiences attached to all aspects : The Good, The Bad and the Ugly!!
I wish you all a journey which leads you to a path filled with abundance of good energy, joy, light, love, acceptance, appreciation and understanding. In short, I Wish You More.
