Saturday I received a massage/energy work from my friend Mary Willard, LMP, at 2nd Avenue Healing Arts. Working on my left leg, she asked what I need to let go of. I immediately answered, "My extra weight." It is time, and I am both ready and willing. She then said something profoundly helpful:
"Ask your angels for help. Also, it doesn't have to be hard. It can be easy."
You know how when you hear the truth, your whole being sort of relaxes and opens and goes ahhhh?
Then came Monday's Note from the Universe:
Carla, whatever you focus on, you will experience.
When you talk about "what is" or "what was," even if you're just explaining to a friendly ear, you project more of the same into the future. If you ask more than you give thanks, you'll believe less in your own power. And if you insist that it's hard and that you're lonely, you'll find that it is, and you are.
Yet, always you can choose to focus on what's good.
So that's what I'm doing. Not just with my eating, but with my work as well. Praying for help and ease, pivoting (and acting) to the positive, saying affirmations. And you know what? It's working. When my attitude changes, everything changes. Once again, prayer followed by action really works. And so does one day at a time. :)
