As I start to write my book. Wow, I just reread that sentence: As I start to write my book. Or that fragment of a sentence, which is how I prefer to write. I just reread it, and it hit me… I am writing a book! Get ready world!
As I go through this journey I am going to send out weekly and daily challenges. They will help me as much as they may (or may not) be helping you. I would love people to take the challenges on and comment on what is coming up or how it’s going.
Join me in the Manifestation Challenge! I am committed to releasing the thought ” I am tired.” I constantly say it in my mind, even when I may not be really tired at all. I literally wake up and blurt it out before I know if I am truly exhausted. It’s like a broken record. After a while, I start to believe it. And you know what? If you say it aloud, which I do often… NO ONE CARES! No one gives a flying rat’s a** ( rhymes with grass) if you slept your full 8 hours. I am fully awake, alive and inspired!
I am also releasing the negative thought that I don’t have enough money or I will somehow run out soon enough and end up in a box on the street. That there isn’t enough. Sentence fragment again, I know. It’s how. I speak. With pause. Anything I need is on it’s way. I have an abundance of wealth, financially and otherwise.
Will you join me in the challenge? What thought can you release that is no longer serving you? What are you repeating over and over in your mind like a dingy old broken record from the 80’s? What can you replace it with? What mind virus can you kick to the curb? Which new thought can you place in the vacant apartment where the old negative one used to dwell?
Place your comments below and let me know how it is going. I support you fully. I am on this journey as well, learning how to be the best Jen I can be. You be the best whatever your name is. Unless your name is Jen, then you too can be the best Jen you can be.
Good luck. It may be bumpy but buckle your seatbelt, grab a glass of wine and never, ever stop doing yoga. (Try not to drink the wine and do the yoga at the same time though. Wine AFTER yoga. Repeat.)
Jen you seemed to pull I’m tired out of my playbook. I can start with that one too:)
great mom! I support you fully. We will not have tired thoughts anymore. Our brains are simply not organized that way!
I’m unlovable. I’ve got a whole list but that might just get embarrassing.
Emily, thank you for being so brave and sharing. What can i do to support you in releasing that crappy bold face lie? I love you deeply. It’s a lie. List the others. once you get them out and on paper you can see how they are garbage.
I am happy to hear that you are willing ti take on the challenge and let go of that mind virus.
That I’m too old for any man to want to marry me and start a family. I’ve not given up hope, but it is looking grim.
I am really blown away by the bravery of the comments. I support you and encourage you in letting that old useless thought slip away. It is a lie, my beauty ….
That I make a horrilble intimate partner.
Thank you for writing that down and for being willing to release it….. I believe sometimes when we have a thought it gets trapped and stuck in our minds until we literally dig it out. Dig that sh#t out Darren! You make an incredible partner. Intimate or otherwise. I can tell this just by the short time I have engaged with you.
Hi Jen! I also love throwing away “I’m tired.” It reminds me of a former student of mine who used to show up at school repeating “I’m so tired.” We turned it into humor, and he did learn to laugh at himself. Now whenever I find myself thinking of how tired I am, I remember this boy and get a good giggle–hope he is doing the same! Of course, there is a time to claim the “so tired” and get in the bed!
And, oh by the way, a well-placed fragment can have a lot of impact. Much the same as a sentence incorrectly beginning with the word and!
Thank you Lyn. Laughing at myself is my motto. In my class it’s ” if you fall you have to laugh.”
And yes, fragments are great. Reminds me of poetry which is how I like to look at the world. As a poem and a photograph. There I go again. Fragment.
Feeling helpless because I want to understand you (my child) better and I can’t.
Replace with: You are amazing, beautiful, and so talented; I honor you for who you are today!
Jackie, I love that you chose such a powerful thought to replace that with. You are an incredible mother!
That I will never make a living on my creative pursuits. Intense fear about money and future.
what can you replace that with kate? I struggle with the same stuff. Let’s come up with something together?
Let’s definitely come up with something together! Love this new blog approach of making people interact. Brills.
That getting the job that I want is hard — so very hard — impossible and I might as well give up.
like I said to kate above.. I struggle with same stuff. It is so easy to get into that trap…. That is an excuse the mind had made up and put on repeat for your listening pleasure, I mean ‘horror.’ How do we know it is going to be oh so hard?
What thought can you replace it with? I will join you. I support you, you talented and gifted writer.
This says it all….The thing that causes me a lot of pain. There is a photo going around with these words on it: “If someone wants to be in your life they will make an effort to be in it. So don’t bother making a space in your heart for someone who does not make an effort to stay”. I have not mastered this yet.
ah mom, this makes me feel a bit sad. I know that feeling and thought. What is the actual thought or belief and what can you replace it with. This takes practice and a willingness to take the road less travelled, as it were. As opposed to the path of least resistance.
I guess it is never to late to “master” what I think.
The list is long, but we’ll start with: I don’t have enough $$$. I HAVE ALL THE ABUNDANCE THE UNIVERSE HAS TO OFFER! Love you Jenn, miss you much! <3
Laksmi personifies wealth, riches, beauty, loveliness, grace, charm, splendour.
” said’ but aid is funny actually. as if those words are your aid xxo
i’m with kate: intense fear about money and future. here’s what i can replace it with for now: i have enough for today and tomorrow and probably even the rest of this year. that’s a little bit of the future, no? is ‘for now’ a start? 🙂
