The Joy Is In The Journey

“Man is a magnet, and every line and dot and detail of his experiences come  by his own attraction.”

                                    Elizabeth Towne, 1906

So often when we first learn about our creative abilities, we want everything to change at once but it is the wise person who realizes that the result is not as much fun as the journey. Each time we fulfill a desire, there is a new desire born within us. Our life here on earth is a time of creating and we will always have new ideas come forth that call our energy to create more. Therefore, it does not matter how long it takes to accomplish each desire. If we try to hurry things along, we miss the joy of the journey.

This knowledge was first presented to me over 40 years ago when I was struggling as a single mother of three, divorced and angry, unhappy with my job with never enough money to pay my bills. In my thirty-three years of living, I had never heard that there were unlimited  possibilities for me, that I was the co-creator of my life experience and that I was connected to the very spirit of life from which everything has come. When I realized that my entire belief system was faulty and causing me to continue to create hardship and unhappiness, I was angry at first to think that I had lived thirty-three years without knowing the truth about life. Then I became so excited about the potential for the future that I forgot my anger and began to use these principles to transform my entire existence.

As I look back on those years, I am aware that my greatest joy was in the journey from darkness into light, from fear into faith, from anger into joy and from judgment into love. I learned that loving and accepting myself was the first step to living and accepting others, that gratitude and appreciation were the highest forms of prayer and that the vibrations of my constant and repeating thoughts were the force that continued to attract experiences to me. I really got it when I found that by changing my “stinking thinking”   I changed my life! The journey of discovery has continued to this day and I celebrate daily that this journey will not end but will only bring with it more possibilities to express and create. Life is an unfolding, unlimited journey of joy!!!

Exercise:

Write a new story about your life and how you want to feel about yourself, your family, your work, your body, your money etc. Make it exciting, uplifting, and creative. Don’t talk about what is but rather create what you would have it be. Read it daily and find the feeling place for each desire.

Affirmation: I am open to new possibilities of joy, peace and love in every aspect of my life.

Let me know how this works for you.
