Following the wonderful response I received with The Bridge Of My Wonderful Life Journey I wanted to tell you part of the story that lead me to a wonderful series of events that perfectly aligned creating a beam of light on the road I needed to fallow.
Last January I started 2012 telling my friends that my word for the new year was ” C L A R I T Y”. I knew I would find my true purpose! I just didn’t know how…
I read many great books between January and May. There was one that ignited a lot of the events which led to where I am today. This book is “The Power Of Positive Thinking” by Dr.Norman Vincent Peale.
One of the exercise at the beginning of this book was to write the word “Believe” on a piece of paper and place it where I could see it every morning so I would say the word I believe 3 times as soon as I woke up….so I pinned it on the ceiling above my bed. These two words are so deeply imprinted in my mind that I sometimes say “I Believe” while I am still dreaming.
The next thing I did was to commit to memory a few great quotes that give me energy throughout the day and helped me in keeping a positive mindset. My favorite quote :
I am consciously attaching myself to the creative forces a operating within myself. I am open to the tides of vitality and re-creative energy present in the universe.
I repeat this quote before I fall asleep and as several times during the day as well as some other great quotes and prayers. It’s amazing how many people I started to attract and be attracted too once I truly decided to change.
On Wednesday June 30TH I was going through my news feed on Facebook looking for inspiration as I usually do before I either create content or share a quote.
One of the titles quickly caught my eye so I clicked on it and started to read. Actually, it took me a little while to take my eyes off a picture of a girl floating above a beautiful lake wearing a nightgown. I don’t know why this picture almost got me hypnotized.
The title said of the article read; “Getting Out of Our Own Way by Oriah Mountain Dreamer“. I have been f0llowing Oriah for over a year now and seeing her name as the author was another reason I was so attracted to this article but mainly…getting out of my own way was exactly what I wanted to do!
So once I was able to lift my gaze from the picture I read the first sentence of the article. As I write about this, I can still feel the electricity go through my body now as it did when I read the first few words of Oriah’s article…
“Sometimes I prime the creative pump for writing by messing around with paint and paper. I paint, in part, because I enjoy it and I’m not particularly good at it so I don’t expect to do it well, don’t have to worry about deadlines or the quality of the end product”. ~ Oriah
Most people reading this story probably enjoyed it for what it is meant to be…A story about how Oriah sometimes get’s her inspiration going through painting. For me, reading these words were like finding the answer to an enigma for which I couldn’t even begin to think of the questions that would have led me to it’s discovery.
After reading Oriah’s article I connected with several of the ladies she mentioned in her article…It was like following a treasure map!
On July 3 I became friends on Facebook with Michele Cassou and I am reading one of her book “Point Zero”. I am loving every page. I am also in contact through e-mail with Eve-Marie Elkin from New York. I plan to have my first workshop with her this Fall.
On July 9, I spoke with my girlfriend Nancy Shields who offered me to take over Makegirlfriends.com!! There has been amazing events as I was saying that led me to knowing my true life purpose and I feel so blessed and grateful!
Daily I meet new fabulous ladies on my group The Women Of Facebook and I am so thrilled to share my journey and how I overcame negativity, being overwhelmed and how I suffered from not having a direction.
I went from not knowing HOW to live with purpose to “BELIEVING” in who “I AM”…I am a passionate painter, an entrepreneur and on a mission to assist & inspire people in expressing their inner- creativity so they unleash their playfulness, vitality and purpose.
There is a lot of work ahead of me…from creating my program to experiencing Point Zero and other fabulous courses that will enable to have all I the desired skills to fully assist others in their own discoveries. I couldn’t be more thrilled to roll up my sleeves and say to myself and to you: “Let’s Work It Girlfriends” …
