Week 9: Truth=fill yourself with love

Health, Wealth, and Love.  Three things that all mankind desires.  My old blueprint says, nah, just Love.  Health comes when you take care of yourself.  Wealth is optional….like only given if you are a master of a business.  Then I started digging in the only place where there is Truth….the Bible.

Psalm 147:5–Great is our Lord, abundant in Power, His understanding is beyond measure.  (Haanel 9.1)

1 Cor 6:19,20–Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN you…Glorify God in your body. (9.2)

Deut 28:1-68–…Faithfully obey the voice of the Lord, careful to do all commandments, Lord will sit you high above the nations…. (9.2)

John 16:13–When Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears, he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (9.6)

John 17:17–Sanctify them in the truth; your word is Truth. (9.6)

Eph 3:20–Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or THINK, according to the power at work WITHIN us.  (9.1)

1 Cor 13:6b–Love rejoices with the Truth.  (9.6)

Prov 23:7–For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. (9.27)

Matt. 9:29–According to your faith, let it be done to you. (9.31)

Oh, this course lines up with the Truth!  I love researching the Word and knowing what I study is found Biblically sound.

I am getting a lot of flack from my kids (teens) as we add more things to read aloud.  They think it is lame and embarrassing.  I keep reminding them of thinking for themselves will get them farther in life than just our schoolwork.  They and I are enjoying the plant/flower visualization sit this week.  Since my daughter just loves flowers, this was easy for her.

The last point of Haanel 9.34 is “Every success has been accomplished by persistent concentration upon the object in view.”  This persistent concentration is our daily practice, not our daily task list.  It is hard, but is so worth it!

Week 8: Linking and digging in with full effort

I am still ever so grateful for this class and reshaping of my habits, my words I talk to myself, and thoughts.  I thought I was well-disciplined before.  I can only imagine what I will be in May.  And THEN get to have one-one mentoring with Mark and Davene in person!  So excited for that!  Having to dig in and really FEEL the emotions this week is our assignment.  I’m not usually a feely person, so this is a stretch.  I have been able to read more UMPH in my DMP.  Those of you Norwegians and Germans will understand that word! =)  I get more excited and smiles when I look at my poster.  I had company ask if my poster was a school project for the kids.  I said, “Nope, my goal poster.”  She said, “Wow, a yacht?”  Yeah, baby!  Smelling the ocean air!  I imagine our loud SD winds as Ocean breezes.  Then I crank up the heater!

One of the survey questions asked about linking and connecting the readings to each other.  Everything I read, listen to, and hear is connected.  I was reading Psalm 15 Monday am:

Psalm 15:
O Lord, who may abide in Thy tent?
Who may dwell on Thy holy hill?
He who walks with integrity,
and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who honors those who fear the Lord;
He swears to his own hurt,
and does not change;
He does not put out his money at interest,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.

Integrity is in BPB, Truth and slander is in scroll II and BPB, kindness is in BPB.

It’s just the beginning.  It is everywhere we look.

Tuesday morning I lifted my weights in the basement while listening to to my DMP read aloud by me with my music.  I had so much to listen to instead of mind-numbing boppy music with no message.  Scroll II I had recorded, my promises, and 7 laws of the mind.  I looked down at my equipment while exercising….I sat on a round RED ball, I held BLUE weights in my hands, and our carpet is an old gold/YELLOW.  Coincidence?  Doubtful.  Everything is in front of us for a purpose.  As I type this, I have a lit 3 wick candle burning beside me.  Smelling like pines.  GREEN.  3 wick makes a triangle and the holder has pine trees (triangle, again)!  It’s everywhere!  Just be an observer!

Week 7: Talking to myself

Music speaks.  My song is still Hall of Fame.  Now I hear my voice and goals with it.

Now that my family has gotten used to hearing my DMP over and over and over, they can’t wait to see the goals manifest!

I had to edit my “sacrifice” in my DMP this week.  I got a little snotty and a bit of an attitude at first…..jeepers, we don’t have TV, very slow internet, and no video games.  I homeschool my kids–have given up LOTS of “career” advancements because of that and it has taken years of time.  What MORE can I sacrifice, REALLY!?  I forwarded my question to another Go90Grow friends to get some advice.  She suggested more time…..really?!  So I sat still (hmmmm, sound familiar?) and let God speak to me.  “Control” came to me.  Control.  Control of others (kids and schedule), control of my opinion and attitude.  Control of frustrations.  Control of actions.  This frees my time to be calm, practice my skills aloud, and gain control of ME.  It also lets me grow closer to my new friend=my future ME!

Then we added the 7 day mental diet.  Wow, what a correlation!  I have to think of EVERYthing that falls into my head and thoughts.  Let it Go is a great song that relates to this task!  When my teens get angry or annoyed with my requests and assignments, I think “I love you” and “I forgive you” so that I can let it go.  I haven’t barked at them or lost control all week.  Pretty proud!

Recording my audios was a blast.  Now I am recording everything….Scrolls, gal in the glass, all I need to read/listen to is going in the phone.  No more radio with nothing on it to hear that is good.  The only thing going between these ears is Good, Honorable, Right, and Truth.  Philippians 4:8.  Philippians is an awesome book.  4 is an awesome chapter for right living.  As John Maxwell quoted the Amplified version of Eccl 10:2:  “Wise thinking leads to right living; stupid thinking leads to wrong living.”  I love that!

Week 6: Scroll II…..happy in love!

I love Scroll II!  I can FEEL this scroll and I need it, desperately.  Dealing with teens at home makes me want to pull hair, but I am a new creature and I start my day with LOVE.

The picture I chose this week to study in my still time (which I did 30 minutes today, whooop!) is my husband and I in FL a couple of years ago.  One of my PPN’s is Autonomy (my definition=freedom to travel).  It is my Yellow Card=FL oceanfront home by 2020.  Peace goes with yellow, too.  So this is the picture also by FL Home.  Love the sun, yet love the rain.  It sits beside the bed and I am working on making it pillow cases.

I read Ecclesiastes 3 this morning.  There is a time for everything.  Guess what:  there is a time for silence and there is a time to love.  They are verses right next to each other.  What timing and providence!  I need to be more silent!  This No Opinion thing is a bear for me!  I hear it fall out of my mouth and OOPS!  But getting better.  My daughter made fun of the compass around my neck.  And I said nothing!! No defense at all!

Does anyone actually FEEL their old blue print leaving or fighting for supremacy?  There are times when my mood overtakes my and stresses me; then I read, think, or even speak to it and get it under control.  That mood/feeling leaves and then I am at peace again.  Just some amazing things I have noticed this week.

Eccl 5:3a says:  For the dream comes through much effort.  Isn’t that the truth.  Nothing comes without WORK.  Daily beating at that subconscious plus practicing skills to grow our biz.
