Hello!! So I haven’t written in over a week, and it’s been a relatively busy week yes but I also know I’ve been putting off writing. I finally have some time off from work though since I finished early, and now I can finally catch up!
Not too much has happened over the course of the past week though, I must admit. We went to the cottage, and it was absolutely lovely – I’m so glad that Krystal and Chad came too, we all vibed really well together and it ended up being a fantastic time. And oh, how beautiful the stars were at night… we actually saw brilliantly dazzling shooting stars, multiple times! And seeing a part of the Milky Way was absolutely breath-taking too.
The cottage was exactly what I needed – I was able to enjoy the peace, quiet and stillness, I was able to swim as much as I wanted to my hearts’ content, and even smoke as much as I wanted to since my parents are finally actually okay with the idea of weed. Thank goodness it’s getting legalized! They may or may not have tried some themselves… I can’t say for sure, heh.
We even did a chakra cleansing meditation right on the dock! It’s so nice that I’ve attracted people into my life who think and feel about life and the Universe the way that I do, I couldn’t be happier about that!
I’ve also re-enrolled for school and picked out some courses, which actually surprised me LOL! I was shocked that I was able to do so with such ease. But, I did put it out there into the Universe that I wanted to get back into it, full steam ahead, so I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised.
I need to get back into the mode of motivation and get cracking on my book! I feel like one day, I’m just going to sit down and bang it all out and just like that, it’s going to be done. So I’m also kind of waiting for that day. I don’t want to be distracted in any way, shape, or form when I’m in the thicket of it all. I have the skeleton done, I know exactly how I want to organize it as though it came to me in a dream. But the heart of it all… that’s the important part and I want to do it right.
I’ve done everything I said I would though, which is actually a pretty impressive feat for me. I used to be someone who would say I would do something and either start it and never finish or never begin at all. I’ve come far from that person.
Adrian’s dad is leaving to Italy tomorrow for six whole weeks! Which means… well actually, I don’t really know what this means LOL! I’m looking forward to finding out though. I’m sure we’ll be spending some more time together now that he pretty much has the entire place to himself for the next month and a half. More growth to be had, more getting to know one another! I can’t wait.
Well, that’s about all for catching up. I’ve had some realizations myself lately – like for one thing, I need to cultivate gratitude into everything I do and say. In the morning when I wake up, I’m starting to cultivate the habit of thinking of all the things I’m grateful for, big or small, before I even step out of my bed. That’s been helping to start my day off amazingly well, so I’m grateful for that (haha).
I’ve finished reading The Secret, AND I also watched the documentary on it which was INCREDIBLE! It’s absolutely changed everything for me, I now believe all that I believe that much more. And because of that belief, synchronicities have been popping up in my life in a fast and furious rate. I’m beginning to see more and more how easy it is to listen to my intuition when I’m truly in tune with myself, and I’ve been practising the Law of Attraction in small ways in order to learn how to attract the bigger things I want for myself.
For example – I read this excerpt in The Secret about the power of visualization. In the excerpt, this person visualized a very specific feather, right down to the markings and colours. I think a couple weeks later, as he was walking in the streets of wherever he was, he happened to look down – and there was the exact feather he’d visualized!!!
So today, while I was at work, I was thinking about how excited I am for our upcoming trip to England and how I really want a certain chic-looking Fall-ish look while I’m there. And I imagined myself wearing a very specific kind of hat that I’ve always wanted – bowler style, black, with a short upward-curved brim, super hipster looking almost. I visualized that hat and promised myself I’d buy it if I could find it somewhere.
As I was walking back to work, all of a sudden I stopped and decided to head to a store, just out of curiosity to look around. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for per se, but I never let myself shop on my break so I thought, “eh, why not”.
When I walked in, I was delighted to see that some fall clothing was kind of intermingling with some summer stuff. As I continued to walk through the store, I looked around and poked at some cute sweaters, but nothing really caught my attention. All of a sudden, my attention was directed to a rack of shirts, somewhere close to a corner. And there, perched on the top of the rack as though it were lying in wait for me, WAS THE EXACT HAT THAT I HAD PICTURED IN MY HEAD, RIGHT DOWN TO THE LITTLE DETAILS!
I couldn’t believe it!!!! Smiling in half-incredulity and half-amazement (and most likely looking like a full-on maniac) I walked over to the rack, picked up the hat, and tried it on my head in front of the mirror that was nearby. It was THE HAT! So, I bought it (along with some other cute pieces that fit the whole aesthetic that I’m going for, for this trip and Fall in general).
Anyways, it was such an incredible moment. But it also means that my visualization and thoughts are manifesting a lot quicker than they used to, which means I absolutely must be careful about the things I think about and where I direct my energies in terms of my thoughts. I’m not afraid though! In fact, I’m amazed and I’m grateful that I continuously get to experience this level of magic, now more than ever. I can’t wait to see what else I can bring about for myself – the possibilities are truly infinite!
That’s about it for today! Oh wait – so I have another book idea. But, I need to finish this one first. But that second idea… it’s going to be amazing. And the way that it hit me too… I’ll write about it in my next log, perhaps.
Until next time!
