Maybe it’s just me. This has been the craziest feeling week. Tie intense personal development and a full/blood/blue moon, and lunar eclipse together, and you’ll feel like you’re going crazy, too! If you’re reading this and it scares you about taking the MKMMA when it’s offered again, PLEASE don’t let it. It will be the most rewarding thing you’ll do for yourself. But it’s work and your blueprint will resist.
Ever heard the crab in the bucket theory? If a crab tries to escape from a bucket or trap, the other crabs will try to pull him or her back down to their level. People may say they admire someone who’s different, but actually dealing with someone like that in their midst will often elicit that crab in the bucket reaction. You become a mirror to them about what they’re not doing with their lives. That also applies for the self you’ve been for 20, 30, 40, 50, or more years. It will resist. So what to do? I chose this week to increase my meditation/sit time and that helped tremendously. I’ve been dedicated to my MKMMA exercises, and continued with them with a little more en-thuuuuu-siasm. I embraced the person I had been and chose to thank her for getting me this far and let her know it was OK to release the resistance. I would be fine.
I also learned from this analogy. Back in August after I returned from the T-Tapp Trainers Certs, I began daily exercise…something I’d never done before. Previously, I was consistent in my workouts, yet never every day. So since mid-August, I have done a workout EVERY SINGLE DAY, mostly T-Tapp or Kundalini Yoga, though I recently discovered Yoga Shred and have added that to my daily T-Tapp or yoga. I also added in a 30 minute walk on the treadmill 2 or more times per week. Now in the past, that would’ve exhausted me to the point of being in bed for a couple of days from overtaxing my body. However, this time my body adapted positively. And now, 5 months later, I’m seeing the results. I’m more flexible, more resilient, have more stamina and strength, and simply feel better physically and emotionally. Turns out my body was CRAVING this type of freedom and true health to show how strong she could be! I began to trust myself more as I demonstrated that I could do far more than I thought possible even 6 months ago. So what’s the connection? Daily consistent practice is necessary to see results. And it’s not always fun. You may not see the results in the timetable you have in your brain, yet you will see them. Anytime I start to feel discouraged about my progress towards my DMP goals, I’m choosing to remind myself that if I keep doing the work, the results will follow. They must. I’ve seen it work.
Another piece of the puzzle is belief. I have to believe it’s possible. The old blueprint has struggled mightily over the past couple of weeks to attempt to convince me that I couldn’t achieve my DMP goals. Telling me I was crazy for thinking I could do this. And besides, even if I did, I couldn’t hang on to them. My father couldn’t, so what made me think I could? Yet, I am not my father. His journey was different from mine. He made his decisions, and I am making mine. I choose to be successful, courageous, healthy, and reach my goal of Diamond within my company and achieve everything in my Press Release. I know it is happening. Even when it appears it’s not, it is. This I now know.
Finally, this week was movie week. I chose to watch Finding Joe again. If you’ve not seen this documentary, WATCH IT! Seeing it again after having been in the MKMMA experience granted some huge a-has! I’ve learned to embrace my dragons. To keep moving forward. To know that there is value in every step I go through. And to trust myself. I’m smarter than I’ve ever let myself believe. Seriously…watch this movie!
