I have to admit I'm not someone who typically uses affirmations. I tried many years ago when Louise Hay was a rising star in the metaphysical world. It made sense to me, but they never seemed to get many results, mostly because I never believed them. But that belief has evolved over the years. I realize back then I was looking for dramatic, instantaneous results. No wonder I lost faith in so many things I tried. In Mother's new video, She adds all the necessary ingredients to help us create a pathway to belief. No longer are affirmations just words but a dynamic support for change.
If you're looking for a simple yet powerful tool that can be used anytime, anywhere, then this video is for you. The method Mother shares today has been working steadily for me for a few years now. My current affirmation/mantra has been, "Today I choose faith over fear." Then I go about looking for ways to turn that into small actions throughout the day. At times over the last few years, I've been called upon to turn that into big action. Most recently I sold our family home after my divorce and with only 2 weeks left before my son and I needed to move out, Mother found our new home on Faith Avenue. I kid you not. There were days when I was repeating that affirmation constantly and days when I cried at my altar and whispered it over and over. It brought me so much comfort as well as contributed to the amazing results of following Mother's guidance and letting faith drive my choices rather than fear.
It's not the only tool I use but it has become a cherished one.
I hope you give Mother's guidance a try and see what happens. Leave me a comment and let me know if it helps. Thanks so much for reading this blog and watching Mother's videos. I'm blessed to have you on this journey with me.
Happy New Year to you all! I hope your year is bright and filled with love. I'm so excited to greet 2018. Mother and I have a very special offering, School of Love, that is just around the corner. I share a little bit about it at the beginning of this video.
Our first video of the year was recorded live during Mother Mary's Winter Solstice Celebration on December 21st, 2017. On the longest night of the year, Mother took participants deep into their darkness not to look for what's wrong but to feel the amazing peace that true darkness within holds. It's the darkness of the womb where all creativity flows from. It's the stillness of Being that is a respite from the busyness of our minds and lives. Mother offers a powerful teaching and meditation on relaxing into the darkness of your inner womb and when you feel centered and filled-welcoming the light of doing and creating.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did when it took place live. Use the meditation to go within at any time of the year to dream, imagine, rest and be. I'm looking forward to another fantastic year of growth, expansion, and joy with all of you.
"You're too sensitive," is what I was often told as a child growing up, or the most damning, "Stop being so sensitive!" So much exasperation went into those phrases I heard over and over as if I could one day wake up magically desensitized. Oh, wait that's exactly what I did after eating enough sugar to fill a grain silo and putting enough drugs in my body to jump-start a corpse. Escaping or avoiding the judgment of others became a critical part of my behavior because I couldn't stand the thought that I was disappointing someone and losing their love or respect. Mother Mary's teaching today hits home in a big way for me.
Even at the height of my f**k-it days when I claimed I didn't care what other people thought of me, I did, I did, I did. I learned to keep track of it all cautiously manipulating my way through my relationships so no one would ever dislike me. And when I came close to exploding from keeping it all inside I would leave the relationship, finding fault with a significant other, moving to another state and not keeping up with friends, always trying to outrun their judgments when they found out what a fraud I was.
I can't express how much Mother saved my life, my sanity, and my heart. She taught me that my sensitivity was a gift if I was willing to learn how to use it in a healthy way. She said if I did I would thrive. Through the years I began to feel how allowing the judgments of others to dictate how I felt about myself was a form of handing them control of my reality. When I loved myself enough to take responsibility for myself the judgments of others didn't hold as much sway. I'm still working on this. A close friend always reminds me that little by little I'm refining my healthy boundaries. The bonus to this growth is that I have less judgment towards others as well when before I was full of them. I'm happy to say I'm not bound up as tightly in that whole dynamic. Being willing to actually implement Mother's teachings and follow the advice of trusted individuals has given me a life I could only dream of. I'm content and fulfilled most days and filled with gratitude for all that I get to experience the most important being the opportunity to serve others.
Thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoy this video filled with Mother's wisdom. It's one more piece that will take you out of bondage and into freedom. Please leave a comment and let me know if giving and receiving judgment is shifting for you!
It has been my honor to serve as one of Mother Mary's channels since 1994. I have experienced in myself and witnessed loving changes in the lives of others who are willing to follow Her guidance. Since I became conscious of Mother in my life, I have found peace. ...Learn More
