…But 90 days may cut it in “Boot Camp” with Marni! I am nearing the end of week one. It has been a week since I got some insight from my D-Factor, and I am thrilled to tell you that Awareness of my energy (or misdirected energy) has been enough to bring real consciousness to my day-to-day interactions. This week I’ve been a much more calm, sane mommy and girlfriend…and I feel much happier with ME! It’s almost magical.
I sincerely did not expect that just having an awareness of how I interact with the world energetically would have THIS much impact on my life, and so quickly – but I find myself chosing my actions and responses much more frequently than I find myself reacting to circumstances and situations.
Can I just say- Hallelujah!!!!??? And with the static of my monkey-mind at bay, I am able to be much more productive each day- the time I spend with my girls has more quality to it, I am able to focus on my Ignite Your Life process easier, and more of my work is getting done! I no longer waste my mental energy worrying or feeling victim to my circumstances.
With my boxing gloves stored under my bed (I haven’t donated them to Goodwill just yet!) I wake up with a sense of excitement for what the day will bring. I find myself looking at challenges from a space of curiosity rather than frustration. My inner voice speaks to challenges with a voice of “If not this something better”, or “This is an interesting twist on the day”, rather than my old standard of “S*@t! Why is this happening?”. And bigger than my inner voice changing- or maybe because of it-my energy has changed already! My boyfriend has a look of surprise when I respond with new found grace in situations that used to get me aggravated- (between you and me, that might be my favorite part so far… Its priceless to see him look vaguely disoriented by me being my more authentic self!). I am certain this heightened energy awareness is attracting a whole new set of opportunities for me, and breathing life into my relationship.
I’ve been needing to look for work, and have pushed it back several months for lack of inspiration about what I want to do. Well friends, this week I was approached to do some copy editing for a friend’s business, and that led to an offer to be the Social Media Director for the company… WHAT!?!!! I am doing a happy dance for sure! The best part is that its a very self-directed position so I get to add my creativity and write my own job description. I start today…EXCITING!!
There are areas that feel still like there will be plenty of heavy lifting involved in changing my patterns, but to date this process has beautifully changed my awareness to the point that things (old behaviors, responses, baggage) seem to be melting away to make room for the Authentic Me. Like a miracle of grace-
I haven’t seen Marni’s Magic Wand, but I swear it must exist!! Her system could be mistaken for Magic.
So I think Rumi was onto something- perhaps the attention IS what leads the soul to gradually growing wholeness.
