Day 8 in the 40 Day Challenge is all about being willing to see that we invite everything into our world through our thoughts, feelings and actions. It doesn't feel great to imagine taking responsibility for somethings, people and events that are negative- but imagine the power in realizing we are responsible for inviting in the goodness?
Gabby relies heavily on what she learns in a Course on Miracles and shares a prayer from the book:
"I am responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience and decide upon the good I achieve. Everything that has happened to me I ask for and receive as I have asked."
This is where we have to be really open. Who wants to feel to blame for a health condition or a friend who hurt us? A car that has issues starting or a leak in the roof? No one. BUT, I have actually been practicing this idea for years and I can tell you that when my energy is off, it seems to be followed with a series of problems. I am so keenly aware of it now, that I don't participate in things often that cause my energy to shift into the negative. There are only a few causes that I'll allow myself to fight for- because I truly care- in order to protect good energy.
It's truly a relationship between what we put out and what we receive that we have to key into. Could that injury be related to something we are punishing ourselves for? Is it that we are sure the day isn't going to go well, so we see neutral events as assaults? Do we then use our perception to create the negative?
If we can do this in one direction, we can do it in another. Today, let's practice seeing things and asking for more good.
affirmation: I am responsible for what I see.
