Lately I have experienced a lot of loss in my life. Needless to say, Mary Sunshine her has left the building and I have come face to face with my inner fears and demons. I lost my Brother and my Dad in the span of days. I lost my Mother last December, on Christmas day. My body has reacted badly as the stress takes it’s tole.
I haven’t been sleeping well and somewhere I read something and I don’t even remember what about Marianne Williamson saying that repeating the Lord’s Prayer or the 23rd Psalm, can’t remember which, was a great source of comfort if repeated over and over. Since I can’t remember which, I choose the 23rd Psalm.
A little more of the back story here. I have trained myself to think in forms of abundance, not lack. To focus on what I have and gratitude and not what I don’t have. The result is I have always had more than enough in my life since working on this shifting of thoughts. Yet since all of this loss, being human, I found it difficult lately. Needless to say, my money began to just slow down almost to a stop. Is it a coincidence? I don’t think so. I think our thoughts and energy behind then truly do manifest things into our lives. I have lived it over and over and seen the evidence in my life.
So back to the 23rd Psalm and what it has to do with abundance. Two nights ago, I began repeating it when I lay down to sleep. After about the third time, it dawned on me that the verse is in fact a lot to do with abundance mentality. Now I don’t follow traditional religion, as in I don’t label myself Christian. I don’t care for labels much and I don’t need a label to know that the source that created me loves me unconditionally.
I do believe in God. The Bible is full of lessons on manifesting abundance, and that can’t be denied. Jesus did it all the time. Look at the fish that fed the multitudes.
So let me share with you how I broke this down and what it meant to me personally.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. ( I already have enough, he knows my wants and needs so why should I be so worried?)
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. ( I have peace of mind to, it’s there, I just have to claim it)
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. ( I can be replinished, even though I feel exhausted)
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. ( I have walked through the valley of the shadow of death, and there is nothing to fear”
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. (My favorite part, my cup runneth over. It does if we look at it from abuncance and not lack)
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. (I am worthy of goodness and mercy and I am sure that the house of the Lord, wherever that may be, is full of abundance)
Is there a moral to this story? Well I don’t know. I do know that over $700 dollars showed up in my life yesterday. I do know that I am being guided towards something, but I am not sure what yet. Thoughts of the update on my pajama affiliate study course come to my mind. I could update so much on the technical side, but honestly the thing that has helped me more in my success is shifts in thinking, beliefs and intentions. I am leaning in that direction with my pajama update as in more motivation and less chatter. More about manifesting abundance.
Sure I will still share new knowledge, but with a spin on lessons that are far more effective in creating the life of abundance.
Namaste, my friends, this is my random blog post for the day. I haven’t’ felt very inspired lately, but surely this is a step in the right direction.
