A little prayer; What’s behind Door #3?

I’ve worked with a lot of my “false” beliefs and “stuck in a rut” patterns, which I recognize kept me in my unfulfilling and emotionally cumbersome, YET cozy, detrimental DARK prison.

I recognized a while ago that even with the awareness of ME some of these beliefs have rallied, making me feel at times I’m in a battle with myself. As far as I’d come in realizations and change, I felt as though I was tap-dancing away on the stagnant ship “ Hesperus”. This is “all about me” and no one else.

So as I’ve done in the past I made an honest appeal a few months ago. I don’t put rules to use in how I ask, it’s all my verbiage cuz then it is MY truth. Not a prayer for a lifetime, just a “pick me up” for the help I needed in the present. Without getting into details of what was actually going on in my life at that moment… Here is what I asked.

My request of (fill in the blank) God, Universe, My higher self, Archangels, Angels, Buddha, Jesus, Spirit Guides, Spirit Animals, Kahuna and any other light beings that want to help a chick out.

I am asking for 10 things.

The help I need specifically is to PLEASE show me kindly and clearly (as I need to bite the bullet & get the over 40 pair of glasses), illuminate opportunities (more than a flashlight, a spotlight would be great) and bring the people, places and things (yes, take me to the water) that will fulfill my objective, prayer, request, yell for help, smoke signals or whatever you want to call it, because it is obvious I need a team. No more bootstrapping it (this is not 1885) or hard knocks (ouch!) for me, no sir!

So, team I need all of you to help me with the following and I will do my best to pay attention for signs and actual wishes granted from you; no need to hit me over the head with the proverbial angelic baseball bat, but I may trip right over some of the support or completely disregard a leprechaun at my door, but I will do my human best to be present and open to what you bring.

1.    To be WIDE open to being in a happy, kick-ass, better than peanut butter marriage.
a.     I’m a recovering commitment-phobe and this is a stretch—I have been a fool for love though and WANT to be a BIGGER FOOL. 
b.     I do love pie too and I am thinking shades of grey are okay, but clarity is a must, and I can dive into that head first just like I’m 20 again.

2.    The ability and actual implementation of recognizing what is GOOD for me.

a.   Not what is necessarily in front of me, behind me or next to me—time to be FULLY awake to taking the less traveled path which smells better than new car scent, but uncomfortable enough that it is different than the old road from Mapquest and we all know how reliable that is… its time for Google Maps.

3.    Build more authentic confidence in all areas of my life with my business, men, my art and as a Mom.

a.     I’ve come a long way from thinking I suck in every way possible. Now its not daily, it is situational and usually has something to do with an old belief….and those I like to pop like zits.

4.    Recognizing and embracing kindness and unconditional love everywhere; inside and out! Nuff said.

5.    Prosperity and wealth leading to FULFILLING success.

a.     Can you say self-sabotage? I am pretty savvy at recognizing the mind-set that leads to pitching myself off a cliff, but I need help with my financial disconnect….it’s time for the pot o’gold literally and metaphorically.

6.    Keep me focused on writing and completing MY book
a.     Writing my book as a not yet uber success, yet having achieved a ton of inner peace, basically rid myself of most anxiety and depression… And helped others to go for their dreams…. I have a few different book titles and therein lies the focus issue: 1. The manual to the universe; 2. F*** dreams, make it a reality, or 3. If I’m okay why does my life suck ass?

7.    Sell my artwork, by providing places.

8.    I ask to see clearly the ways I invite punishment and suffering into my life and give me the insight on the action I need to change that belief.

a. It is time for me to stop picking the booby prize, donkey behind door #3. C’mon Monty, help me to stop in the name of LOVE all the ways I show up not totally digging me, that give the appearance, I somehow euphorically am drawn to living in an iron maiden emotionally.

9.    Focus on my talents with peace and joy
a. And as my friend Vanessa says…”Peace be with you”. Being drawn to what I love gives me peace and joy, let not the cannons on the field in front of me go off and stop me from my bliss.

10. Be appreciative and grateful all the way as I accept my imperfections.

a. I am pretty damn good at this one, though sometimes I forget, like when I’m in my car getting ready to pull out of a parking space and an older lady comes to my window to complain about how I parked. I won’t get into the ensuing conversation or how others park which creates less than desirable circumstances. This woman needed to remind me I wasn’t perfect and we are all mirrors for one another.

THANK YOU MY BLESSED TEAM…I feel like I am at Disneyland.

All to be done with ease, grace and happiness for my fulfilling life. 

Victoria elaborates on her Wink from the Universe

This is a follow up to my recent post about my work and my wink from the Universe. I feel it is important to share further my experience with the Wink the Universe gave to me, when placing me in a position to “help” the business of a friend.

Customer reaction to the product my friend sells has been tremendous. I learned that she and the company: educate, provide important usage information and allow for the customer to experience real, natural and multiple benefits to this product which becomes integrated into their daily life.

Customers who were educated on how to use it for themselves, LOVED the product, shared the news and spread the word about the benefits. Those who did not “like” it, had not received the proper information and usage of application.  These individuals were not utilizing it as it was intended, so they were unable to see its real benefit.

Through working at this business opportunity, I discovered it was a mirror to how I see, project and do my own “business.”

This past Saturday, I came into the business I own, Que Linda Boutique. Kenny who is one of my young soul workers was present. We started discussing how we cannot just let life happen to us and then have a reaction to it…

We must pull out our compass and navigate our steps. We must take it upon ourselves to Dance with the Universe to manifest our wants, desires and needs.

I had asked the Universe to aid me with bringing to my business the Wealth of Good and Authentic Customers. The intention is for those who are invested in really doing the Work, and authentic to their own process to come and share their experience with us. In stating this manifestation I realized I was missing the ultimate step.   

My boutique provides/offers items that have great benefit to our daily life; these items impart tools and benefits to aiding an individual in a journey of love and positive life experience. I discovered through this other job that I need to be aware that each customer may not know how to utilize our products, services or offerings to the fullest benefit for THEM. In my list of manifestations; I am asking to go onward and upward with my business. This includes my customers, family, abundance and prosperity, and my health of mind/body and spirit.  I realize I must do the work to aid in the education to my clients of our products and services for practical and every day usage.

After discussing this on Saturday with Kenny, the young soul worker, we continued to move our new merchandise around, creating and setting the day in the boutique.

A recent addition to our “offerings” is a “Prayer Request”. It was created for our customers to participate allowing them to release their intentions to US, so we can aid with connecting, praying and calling for their intentions and prayers to manifest. As we were doing our work, UNDERSTANDING our part in providing the education of how to use our products and setting our intention for the day; the synchronistic began to dance within our sacred space.

A beloved customer, Carol, came in as we were speaking of our sacred space. She is manifesting her intentions so similar to our own…just in her way…for her business.  As we spoke, another Soul Worker, Kriste, stopped by because of my request a couple of days ago.  She was asked to meet with our customer Carol, but wonderfully enough, Kriste needed Carol and her energy too.

From that point on the day just FLOWED with customers, family stopping by to receive an infusion of positive energy and to participate in what was needed for our clients…conversation, information and spiritual networking.  It was so fun to witness!!!

We all loved, sharing energy and supplying our wealth of information to our customers. The day flew by while we received others and learned from our customers with their wealth of information; offering guidance, spiritual networking and so much more. I did the closing register numbers for the day. So much gratitude already for what had transpired from our own Understanding, to the Universe bringing, guiding and allowing these amazing experiences with our customers….a surprise awaited me.

For the 1st time, without an “event” or “workshop” pulling customers in…it was just us, just me, just the boutique doing our work…we made my daily business goal!!

It was a goal I have been shooting for since we opened the doors 3 years ago!!!  It is just one day. But, it is the start. It is the Universe’s wink to me, showing me when I DO as I Know, it all comes and flows. That which I am ASKING the Universe to do for me, can ONLY be done IF I participate.  If I articulate.  If I educate.  If I apply the real life!!

So once again Universe you bring to me that which I need! You show me how and I understand. I know it is for me to do, Learn/Educate and LIFT UP TO THE HIGHEST, so that I can be, receive and have the HIGHEST.

Gratitude!

P.S. I received this email from Kriste on Sunday.

Hello Ladies!

Just wanted to say how wonderful and perfect it was to be with you on Saturday!  “Serendipitous synchronicity…the universe unfolding in perfect timing with a chuckle!” Emma, Victoria…thank you for introducing me to Carol…another “angel softly walking” on the planet.

And Carol, what a beautiful unfolding in our first meeting…thank you for allowing me to be of service and as promised, I will be sending you shortly, the info about the essences and oils “called in” to our Sacred Healing Space session at Body ‘N Soul/Que Linda Boutique.

Namaste~

Say a Little Prayer

Yesterday was a pretty busy day for me. In the afternoon, I had a client and afterwards I taught a class. My client is a poet. It was her birthday and so, along with a couple of other goodies…I decided I wanted to provide a special gift.

The evening before, was Open Mic in the space where my coaching office is located. Open mic started a year ago and had one guest the first evening. This past Friday night, there were 25 people in attendance. Amazing!

The environment is safe, warm and inviting to all. My client, the poet, read aloud her collection of three poems. She attends the Open Mic monthly and has developed quite a reputation for her lively, sultry poetry. She has grown in confidence and presence; it was lovely to witness.

As she read one of her poems, I was listening to what the meaning was for her as to why she wrote it; it was a poem about her soulmate coming into her life. It was almost like a prayer.

It got me thinking. A prayer. Yup, her birthday was the next day and it was time to turn that poem written from her heart and soul into a prayer. The place in which my office, Que Linda Tu is located employs individuals five days a week who provide massage therapy, aromatherapy, reiki, readings, energy work and more.

Yesterday, I ask Ken who started a prayer circle in this sacred space if he would work with our poet. And I ask the poet if she would like to engage in creating a prayer for herself from that poem. She agreed and so did Ken.

They sat on the floor and started to dig a little deeper into the poem, into her heart and beyond her mind. We moved beyond what she had felt possible for herself and into what she believed had been impossible for years. The prayer was made and already the prayer circle widened. I know this prayer will come true.

This young man has already worked with two other people in creating their prayers. Both of these people came back right away, to let him know that within a month their prayers had come true. Magic? Or is it the power of belief and intention in a clear statement of desire? It seems having more minds holding your prayer for you also moves it along; whether you call it a prayer, the law of attraction or just believing….it really does work. I have read how people have been healed of all sorts of ailments and at the other end of the spectrum, I have read how dreams come true with all that focused intention.

Sometimes it takes a village. And as always, we are connected to one another and when one receives, we all receive. I too, decided to take my belief that I have been holding on my own and share it yesterday too. Something I used to believe was impossible, I now believe possible…it will come true.

I would love to hear about people manifesting their desires whether through prayer, writing it down, a vision board or whatever tool has helped you to create something you wanted in your life. Please email me at Tracy@13degreez.com or please leave a comment.
