The Power To Make Things Happen

the universeWell the universe and I are certainly working in consortium recently.  I try very hard to listen to what is being asked of me, and why I am here. I sit quietly with my thoughts because I have been granted a lot of time to do that. The process has been somewhat rejuvenating and awakening. Really listening is a challenge. I believe the gratitude is what brings about the positive forces along with positive directional thinking and mental imagery.  Believing in what you need and want, seeing it in your mind’s eye will bring about just that. It may not come at the particular time, or in the particular manner you would like or would’ve chosen if been given the choice, but it does come.

Since very early childhood I asked to be reunited with my birth mother and although I put much personal effort into that search the universe brought us together seventeen and a half years ago when I was 28 years old. Many people search for years and even if they are successful they are very painfully turned away.  I was one of the lucky ones. The universe helped me find my mother in a total of 28 weeks with a lot of help from others all of whom were brought into my life in the strangest of ways only to be explained by the powers that be wanting things to fall into place the way they did.  The number 28 as I have mentioned before is very significant in my life. There were many more instances of this number during my search and at other times as well.  I find it very interesting because the number 28 in Hebrew corresponds to the letters Chaf Chet כח. These two letters when placed together spell the word koach which translates into English as strength. inner strengthI find this both amazing and truly miraculous. It has taken much strength to get to the place I am right now and I know it will continue to require strength to keep going forward.  This is one of the things I ask the universe for daily after expressing gratitude, is to continue to give me strength.

Recently I have asked for a fresh start, for my house to sell quickly so that I could embark on a new path.  Just yesterday I signed the contract on my home and we will be closing quickly. For 30 years I asked the universe to please stop the abusive behavior of Mordechai Winiarz aka Marc Gafni, so that he could no longer hurt anyone else.  And now, only months ago thousands of people signed a petition on change.org supporting the truth about this sexual predator and his direct ties with John Mackey of Whole Foods.

Like I said, things don’t always come when you ask them to.  I pled as a child for my mother; and it took 28 years.  I implored the universe to protect others against a sexual predator who abused me; and it took 30 years, but positive thought and action will come to fruition if you keep the proper mindset.

Asking for a fresh start and being granted one is another proof positive in the universal connection to your hearts’ desire, and seeing it in your mind’s eye. I can picture myself granted with success, writing, creating, being in love, being loved, friends, family and giving back to the world in a positive way. Some of these have happened, or are happening or will happen at some undesignated point in time. But I can see it and feel it all.

Living in the moment and being thankful for just that moment makes the process easier. When I am writing I am so thankful that I am being given the time, space and mind set to be doing do. When I am talking to my children I am thankful that they are around to listen.  When I am meditating I am thankful for the time I have, the gifts I’ve been given and the nature around me.  meditatingWhen I am exercising I am thankful for all the strength I was given to persevere, and get to a place where my body is healthy and able to exercise and participate in active undertakings. When I am working around the house I am thankful for the roof over my head and what it took to get this roof all on my own almost 8 years ago.

You may not even know what it is you are seeking, silence and alone time may help you figure that out.  Once you do, YOU have the power to convene with the universe to make it happen; through gratitude, through belief in the universal power that exists, through positive thinking, mental imagery, then strength and action.

Confidence & Support – A Symbiotic Relationship

Confidence is something that does not come easily for many people.   The more and more I return to myself physically and emotionally – the more confidence I find. I know what I am capable of, and what I have difficulty with. I also know now more than ever that I can accomplish anything I am passionate about and set my mind to. That discovery in and of itself is liberating, empowering and can enable you to break free from people who tell you otherwise. Being around those who support your dreams, share your passions, cheer you on, and encourage your growth is by far one of the most important things you can do for yourself on ANY journey upon which you embark.

With a support system in place you can keep moving forward even when you encounter temporary setbacks. Surround yourself with positive people who bring you joy, who love you for who you are, who will cheer you on every step of the way and even if they don’t share your passion, they understand the importance of living your dream and following your heart.

I know this is sometimes easier said than done; I’ve been there, believe me. It has to be a very conscious decision to not allow negativity to invade your personal boundaries. Shut out the gossip; tune out the “you’ll nevers”, the “you’ve failed befores”, the “odds are against yous” and any other negative talk you may hear. Keep reminding yourself that you CAN, you WILL, you are CAPABLE and you have PASSION. When the turkeys get you down, surround yourself with chickens (or even better…puppies…unconditional love)!

puppiesToday I gathered my confidence and I went to peddle my theatrical services to a local synagogue, and was met with much enthusiasm. I am thrilled and excited at the thought of being able to do what I love, and maybe get a bit of compensation. I know such a program is not in their budget, but it is exactly what this declining congregation needs. I found much of this confidence after accomplishing my weight loss goals. Each goal achieved cultivates your confidence and allows you to challenge yourself in ways you never thought you would. I hope to work with children and adults alike to produce a musical, which will bring their community together in new ways, grow their membership and raise money as well.

None of this would be possible without consciously making the changes to my environment necessary to be happy and stay positive. Take a step towards improving your immediate surroundings and you will see just how much better life can be.
