At the beginning of this month, I posted a blog on how affirmations work, energetically. Then I posted about my biggest fear. Almost a month later, a lot has happened: The massive abundance that I wanted to internally shift towards started to show externally.
So what I did was blog about my biggest fear, recite my affirmations every day and take the necessary steps to make shit happen.
Blogging about my biggest fear was not only a huge sigh of relief for me, but it cleared out a ton of negative energy I’ve held onto for a very, very long time. It enabled me to start bringing a lot of positive energy into my energy field (aura) by incorporating an affirmation that I gave a lot of meaning to. And while I recited my affirmations every day, I just started moving towards what I wanted to experience.
What I wanted to experience was spending time with my daughter, Kal, by going on a road trip to visit family in upstate New York that I haven’t seen in 15 years. I had no idea how this was going to happen but I needed to find a way.
At the end of May, I remember receiving a text from Kal’s dad while I was sitting in a Subway restaurant after an Amazon delivery shift in San Jose, California. The text asked me when would be a good time for Kal to come visit and my heart sank. I felt it wasn’t a good time and told him the end of June. I felt really, really awful because at the time I was living in my Jeep, I kind of dreaded delivering for Amazon, I had no idea how I was going to see her and I didn’t want to wait until the end of June or possibly not seeing her all summer!
I felt a strong intuitive push to get to Sedona, Arizona ASAP and stay there for several days. So I did. It took 12 hours to get there but it didn’t matter.
While I was sitting in my Jeep in front of Bell Rock in Sedona, the idea of affirmations came up. I wrote about it because I knew how they worked and I know words contain a lot of energy whether you say them, write them down, share them with others or hold them in your mind. I followed my own energetic words that were written and shared on June 1st, not knowing how things would unfold but intuitively feeling good about it. And today, June 25th, I’m just in shock because I got just what I wanted and the journey continues past New York as I’m now heading back west.
When I wrote about how affirmations work, I got really serious about it and got straight to work. I was able to come up with the money in a few days to do just what I planned. The entire drive to Florida and to New York were filled with thoughts of my affirmation. I said it over and over and over again in my head and wrote them down. Anytime doubt or some limiting belief started to raise up, I shut it down quick by going right back to my affirmation and pumping myself up to the Top Gun soundtrack, which is a favorite of mine, and of course “Whatever It Takes” by Imagine Dragons.
I was able to take Kal to visit places I’ve never been to like the White House, and take her to places I haven’t seen in 15 years! We were able to experience a lot within these last few weeks and spend a lot of quality time together. I’m just truly shocked by how much has happened since I left Sedona earlier this month and I’m really excited to keep feeling and experiencing the massive abundance that I focus on internally every day.
So yes, so far, so good.
…but I’m also aware anything can happen at any time. I feel this needs to be said as a form of awareness, so I don’t believe myself into thinking I “spoke too soon”. It may seem superstitious but I like to think of it more as a way to respect the many faces of unpredictability, even when things are going really well. I believe the Stoics called it premeditatio malorum. Cheers!
